Okay, please don't kill me for this-but I'm on the fence on how much I like (and by extension, DISlike this guy). On the pros side, I LOVE the look of this suit-that sneer, that snarl and that brutal poise he carries himself with-sure, he's not as svelte or crazy defined like Heisei in spite of his bulk, but he's got that bloodthirsty grin and a fuckton of strength for such a small Goji.
Furthermore, the idea of restless soldiers killed in one of the world's most brutal conflicts being his reason for being? Really nicely ties into the 1954 Atomic Bomb theme. And he is brutal.
But he comes across as kinda...dim.
Like, don't get me wrong, he's an AWESOME fighter-but not very bright. For example when he figured out that he could no longer fire his atomic breath right, what did he do? Keep trying to fire his atomic breath. And he kept trying to...and trying to, even though it clearly was hurting him (or at least very unpleasant seeing as chunks of him were coming out the screeonkin' hole in his throat). Like, I get he's the restless anger of countless souls-but does anger make someone completely stupid? Maybe impulsive, but not self-destructively ignorant like Sokko acted at the end of the movie.
That, and combined with his rather lackluster behavior otherwise...I'm not a huge fan of his behavior. Like KiryuGoji-Awesome design, awesome backstory, but mediocre (at best) execution. But please tell me your thoughts below!
