...seriously, having combat to decide who's right really IS kind not even kind of, just really stupid. How does 'I can hit you hard enough that you go down before I do' decide anything? Let alone why do characters usually seem to go along with it?...yes, I am aware I am poking fun in many ways at myself but meh. I personally just agree, with me, that combat to decide junk is stupid.

See you Saturday!

All I got was that the Taisen movies are terrible, which they are.

Well, if I recall correctly, there's this Japanese idea that fighting for something can give you power.

So, I think the idea was, who believed more in their ideal, was stronger, and therefor more likely to make that ideal a reality.

I think there's not just a japanese thing, but it gets a little bit twisted depending on points of view. There was the whole 'god will protect the one in the right' thing in some places.

I read once that the great myth of Western society was the battle between good and evil. Human conflicts tend to be much more nuanced, while Christian scripture (the dominant religion of the region, at least in the time the idea emerged) makes it clear that while internal struggles of the type may exist, there is no such struggle on a cosmic scale. The tension between the ideas led to 'God will protect the one in the right', but as that doesn't always happen (and isn't scripturally supported anyway, but of course prior to the early modern era most people couldn't read them), we instead get the battle between good and evil expanded to all scales.

The point of the Christian Gospel is largely that fighting (or fighting other humans anyway) is not best. Of course the corollary to that is that you have to be willing to die for that belief for it to work, but that's another discussion.

I liked the first taisen movie. Plus I just enjoy seeing others even know about tokasatsu. Most people I talk to would have no idea what that picture was from.
