my fav trope is arrogant bastard who’s socially much higher than the protagonist but then he experiences a social downfall and now he has to hang out with the protagonist and his cringe gang. plus points if he’s dramatic about it while the others don’t care
i can't believe season 3 of ygo DM is widely considered a bad season. it literally includes a plot line about the former kaiba corp big wigs wanting to dispose of kaiba, with their reasons slowly being revealed to be because he dismantled the military weapons production arm of the company and put them out of a job because he wanted to use the tech to build an amusement park for kids instead...
except for one guy who was fully on board with the amusement park thing and instead is trying to kill kaiba because he's obsessed with penguins and wanted to put a penguin attraction in the park and kaiba said no.
The fact that Kaiba is an angsty jerk shounen rival whose life goal is to build a theme park is beyond parody. motherfucker is literally edgy teen walt disney with dragons instead of mice. laughing maniacally and wearing leather pants while he furthers his heartless plot to...bring joy to small children? who wrote this. cursed.
