hasui: winter moon

(no subject)

I don't read much fanfic anyway, and I'd certainly never read it before I started writing myself for fear of contamination. So I'm not going to troll the Pit to find out if someone has ever quoted Nietzsche (god what a name) with respect to Hellsing. But "She who fights with monsters should take care that she herself does not become a monster" fits rather too well, given the other meaning of 'with'. Half a manga is still not much of a basis, but I'm hoping to see more hot moral temptation from A la Kaado. Don't bother telling me if it doesn't happen; I shall find out soon enough. When I finish marathoning Blue Seed.

Proof, if any more were needed, that the Japanese remain Unfallen: they can make something like Blue Seed with its 'this earth, this realm, this Nippon' theme, and do it sincerely, and you find yourself nodding agreement with them.
