This is bothing before and I want to bring it up, and yes, this involves you Ice. Let's say that Ricardo DOES lose his arm permernantly, like every other characters that has been overused so many times to death in Anime, Games, LN, etc. in 2019-2020, was it really worth the win? Was it worth for me to lose 4 years of my sacrifice and my drive & motivation, my blood and sweat to support my uncle/father, the one that inspired me to make art and make a novel til the very end, and throw it all away like trash and lose my progress because you lot killed him without even trying to help me get Tappei to change to get his arm back? Because if so, then that's really messed up in the head because not only that he'll be killed, but he won't get a cover in the series, revert to my boring and ugly self, my uncle would remain dead, my bastard of a father is still alive, and there's no way to replace Ricardo/uncle because there's no one that is like him. Even if someone "magically" has the Authority of Lust and suddenly make that stupid and ugly prosthetic arm into an actual arm, it doesn't change that fact that Tappei killed him and Otsuka won't/can't draw/censor characters with missing limbs, let alone prosthetics, that they get very less illustrations than other characters. IDK what's with you all having beef with my uncle. Is it because of his personality, or is it because he's a male, not a waifu/husbando material, or because of raciasm? Because that's kind of an idiotic logic behind it. And before you say "but you're just being delusional". YOU DON'T KNOW what it's like to lose someone who you know for 15+ years and idk why you all are being cold-hearted. Is it because that you hate me that you want to bring Ricardo down and make me stay in bed and cry 24/7, or is it that you have never felt loss before? And before you say "why not get help". Help of what? Help me get Ricardo his arm back? Because I am trying but no one is helping me get it back. Not to mention that my friend is dying and Tappei is ignoring me and no one is helping me get it back, so it's a double "Joey killer". So like I said, was it worth it? If so, then congratulations, you beat me, Ricardo is dead and he's been replaced by a 1-armed Al with a hook wannabe. I had something/someone, the only one, to motivate me for everything, now I have nothing/no one again because of people's selfish acts and hating on me for liking/loving someone I love. If you are truely on my side, then please, make Tappei to retcon to forget a prosthetic arm ever existed on Ricardo and give him an actual arm.
Sorry that it took me quite a while. I was at a loss of words. And needed time to choose my words.
That's not how you should act. Especially you who knows how it feels to be abandoned, to be special, to lose something. Or are you telling me you're abandoning your Uncle/Father/Husband because he lost an arm and got a prosthetic? Ricardo needs you, his most loyal fan. And even more so in times like this. Sticking your head in the sand and giving up won´t do anything either. But it´s your choice: give up and lose everything or stand proud by his side and win. And no I don´t think you're an incoherent trashbag. Sure you can be annoying at times, but there´s still talent in you. But giving up like this means your throwing all your sacrifices away, all your rough talent. Just everything goes to waste.
IK that, but it feels to me like that everyone cares about is themselves and probably imo jealous that I have a family member having a reincarnated vessal, even with Ice insulting Ricardo and rubbing it in my face for no reason, and not one person even show a little symphathy about it. Also, "fan"? I never said that I'm a fan. Only fans loves their favorite characters/stars, not family. Ricardo, despite that we're not blood related, he is my uncle/father. And iirc, my uncle came back from Afghanastan as a Marine with all of his limbs attached. Ricardo losing a limb is like losing a piece of and an insult to my uncle. And Ricardo not giving a backstory and got his screentime cut or not even getting a cover art is even more of an insult to my uncle. It's like Tappei doesn't care about my uncle or even my friend's life is at stake, no matter how many times I tell him. Don't you know how hard it is to find a vessal for my uncle? Finding another one takes forever. So yes, I am a trashbag. A failure. If I failed to save Ricardo, my uncle, I failed to save my friend who is dying and no one is helping. Ricardo is the one one that gives me a full drive for everything. Seeing him get killed and replaced by a 1-armed prosthetic fraud is like looking at my aunt's bastard new uncle and looking at my bastard father looking down on me, grinning, looking at his failure son.
And also, has someone ever told to Tappei that it's one of the most stupidest idea ever? Because you're basically downgrading someone who is well ballanced, not strong but not weak either to extremely weak. That's like downgrading Ryu from street fighter from a well balanced to an unplayable weak character. That's how he treats my uncle. And thanks to that, Arc 6 is becoming a bundle of mess. If Ricardo joined in Arc 6, then it makes sense to have the entire Ana camp joined and focused on them in the Arc just like how the entire Crusch camp joined in arc 3. You'll be killing 2 birds with1 stone. But instead, Ana doesn't care and, iirc in the Mimi SS and Tanpenshu 5, Ana promised Roshi to take care of the Pearlbatons and then suddenly retcons itself and bends the rules...but these are my personal rants imo...
What? No. I'm not ableist. If it's Al, I can accept his armlessness. If it's any other human, I can accept their armlessness because I don't care about humans. Hell, if it's Ricardo from the VERY BEGINING, I can at least accept him. I don't mind him fighting and giving someone a headpat by just using his feet from the beginning of the series. But thanks to 2019 and 2020 of their cliche and overused trend of "character(s) losing an arm" that its ok from time to time, but it becomes annoying AF if everyone uses it. Because when you think about it: Nero from DMC5 loses his arm. Sekiro loses his arm. Compress loses his arm from Overhaul and Overhaul loses his arms from Compress and Shigaraki. A crap-ton of characters from SAO seasons 3 and 4. You get the idea. I don't want Ricardo, aka my uncle/father, to fall into that category. Even there's a rando guy, even after Ricardo's...you know, who comes to Burger King every time I go there, and it creeps me out.
Anyways, to answer your topic @Sturmmagier, a world w/o Ricardo/uncle or anyone like him is impossible. If I give up on him, I'll just return to my lifeless and trash self with nothing on me. If I go with the armless imposster, it wouldn't be the same as the real Ricardo because he looks nothing like him and personality that is not like Ricardo/uncle. You see what I mean? I'll be nothing without him, it's a lose-lose siteuation. I only need him and him only. He completes me.
And even if I continue what I do what I like and support that 1-arm knock-off, I won't/can't feel the same drive/motivation because he's not Ricardo and people shunned and killed him. Either way, I'm still an impuriotic and incoherint hateful piece of trash that no one wants. I couldn't save Ricardo, my uncle/father, and my friend because no one wants us...
I still don´t think you´re trash. And while I don´t know everything what happend to you I don´t think you should give up like that. I´m just a guy that´s proofreading text people post here and corrects them. This is above my pay grade. There´s not much I can do, except telling you to go seek help. And I don´t mean help in recovering Ricardos arm.
If you want to talk. You can talk over Discord. Just a little warning as a german my pronunciation is a little off.
@Sturmmagier Can a trash skip food for the entire day because I didn't eat breakfast at the breakfast time and now everyone is enforcing me to eat? You know I am. And I just told you what happened before. How did you forget? And if you ask me to get help other than getting Ricardo's arm back, then whats the point? What are they gonna help, just sit down and do nothing while eating Doritos and Mtn Dew? Because you know they're gonna do nothing while I'm actually trying to find people to help me to get Ricardo's arm back while at the same time draining my own life to stay in bed and do nothing...
What does a "psychiatrist" gonna do to help me? We all know that they never do anything to help me to help Ricardo. Ricardo is all I have and all I can acomplish and in my life. Without him, I'll be nothing but a pathetic, worthless, piece of trash without a reason to contine. While everyone got their sole somebody while I don't have anybody.
Joey, you´re an autistic furry with depression it would be easier to name the thinks that a psychiatrist couldn´t help you with.
At this point, you´re fighting reality. Ricardo doesn´t just get swapped with an imposter because he lost an arm and got a prosthetic. It doesn´t matter how many letters you or anyone else writes. Tappei won´t change it. You either accept it, or you move on.
@Sturmmagier DON'T YOU DARE say that I'm autistic! I'm not retarded! And again, what does a "psychiatrist" gonna do to help me? What's gonna help me? NOTHING! What is even their purpose for anyways if they do nothing? And he did get swapped with an imposter, because Ricardo doesn't look like Al 2.0 with more plotholes and a disgusting prosthetic like a freak. And you all MUST help me to get Ricardo his arm back. Tappei MUST change it ASAP! And I want it now!! How am I supposed to either accept or move on if he doesn't look like nor have similarities as my uncle/father and will never have a backstory nor have a cover because he got killed off? Tappei could've give him a cover in Arc 3, but nooo, he has to be racist and put Felt and Reinhard, for which they never appeared in vol 8 in neither the jap and the eng volumes, as covers. Julius should've lost his arm instead, or in fact, this imposter, should've been killed off, not Ricardo. So make Tappei change it and retcon it so that he'll never be armless.
@Dtousa You're not taking either side, so why are you commenting?
But I'm guessing the both of you don't understand what love is. Don't worry, idk too...until I met Ricardo. He gave me another chance in life. And that's why I love him. But I guess you can't underatand what it is... Love...is something that you don't want to let go. I don't love him because I'm his fan. Nonono. That's what people say to stars, role models. Of course, I don't have that, I have Ricardo. I love him not just because he's a reminiscent and bare similar features to my uncle/father, I love him because he's perfect. The way he looks, the way he talks, the way he smells, the way he feels from his fur and holds my hands, he's not like one of those generic and boring humans that we see 24/7. Ik that I get a lil tmi about myself, but you gotta understand that there's no one like him. If someone hurts Ricardo, I hurt them back...hard. I give my life to Ricardo because he's the only one that puts me in motion. Without him, I'll be nothing but a scummy, trash, worthless, and unforgivable being on earth.
Joey nobody thinks you´re retarded because you have autism. But your actions and things you write don´t help that.
For the things, a psychiatrist could help with. 1. Depression 2. Obsession with Ricardo 3. The mental scars(parents and uncle´s death) 4. Reality 5. Autism 6. Motivation
There´s a lot you could gain from simply trying to speak with a psychiatrist. What would you lose from just trying it? I don´t know in which state you live but for someone like you, there should be a good chance to get help without even paying a psychiatrist.
Talkin with a psychiatrist is basically are time killers, aka waste of time, because that helps nothing to get Ricardo his arm back (and I live in NY btw). Me losing Ricardo is the same how everyone lost Kobe Bryant, which just recently happened, and now look at where everyone is now. Depressed, unmotivated. If it were Ricardo in that story, people would just forget in a day like white noise and walk on top of him because people are ungrateful towards him and make no art of him only because Subaru doesn't have a Wolfin/Kobold on his team because the author is racist towards them and he hates his characters because greed is consuming him. Have you ever watched something about like "Anime Characters Broken By Battle"? That's an archetype I really hate, and I do not want my Ricky to be part of that. I don't want him to be another Al, or worse, a Joseph Jostar. If it's human characters? Fine, I don't care about those species. They're too overused and overrated. But not my Ricky. He's the only one that means to me. My uncle? Dead. My bastard of a father? He doesn't care about me. He never even visits nor calls me. Friends? Abandoned. My other family? Pfft. Behind those fake smiles means they would not care, I'm nothing but just a burden to them and my Aunt dating a new person is just an insult. Ricardo is all I need and there's no one that looks like nor can replace him, even this series' lackluster of furry characters.
You can´t compare Kobe Bryant with Ricardo. Even less so in people mourning him. Even I know who Kobe Bryant is, despite never watching Basketball.
You have all the time in the world. You don´t work and you aren´t a student. What do you do all day long? Talking to someone would take like what? 5% of your free time away from helping Ricardo to get his arm back. And what are you going to do when Ricardo doesn´t get his arm back? Then you have even more time to spend with someone talking.
It´s tragic that your uncle died, that your parents and your friends left you. But you're wasting all the effort, time and money your grandparents put into you. There aren´t going to live forever. What are you going to do once they die?
What surprises me is that this thread still isn´t closed or deleted.
I watch TV and idk who Kobe Bryant is. And yet, a lot of people come to the funial more than either the character they love or the person who is the closest to them. That isn't really fair at most. Helping to get Ricardo his arm back is more important than going to see a "psychiatrist" and give you no info nor help. Basically, a waste of time. I'm at least trying to help someone who I love and important the most of. If Ricardo doesn't get his arm back, then all my sacrifices would be a waste and no point of continuing and talking to people other than Ricardo would be a waste of time. And who cares? Tbph, if Ricardo does die because he lost his arm and replaced with an imposter, then idc about death anymore. Losing what's important is greater than replace with a faker who does not look like him in any shape or form. And that is Pride that you're talkin to. If anything what is coming to me, then I'll gladly accept it.
So you would rather wait for death than give a psychiatrist and/or psychologist a chance? You would waste no time anyway since watching TV also doesn´t help Ricardo. Or go when Ricardo dies for you. I mean still better than waiting for the inevitable.
It's either end early but what's the purpose or continue but endure more suffering. Either of the choices can never bring true happyness even if I try to do well at something. But I know you won't care, Furu don't care, Crystal don't even give a single cent about me, and most of the people because all I know is you all want me and Ricardo gone because no one want to help my uncle and my friend who is dying. And yet here we are. People have Emilia, people have Rem, people has trash tier Garfiel, Julius, Wilhelm, etc. While I have no one, all because people wouldn't want a furry race in their story want want their perverted mind on the waifus and nothing else. I mean it's not really fair that people get to enjoy who they love while I'm stuck with no one. But I guess at the same time, no one really wanted me and only there for their amusement, I believe... Yup, hehe, just leave it to Joey, the one who everyone hates because I'm not like the rest of ya...
Well, I indeed do this because it amuses me. At least to a degree. I also do this because of 1. I know what will happen, 2. I don´t hate you and 3. I don´t want you to die. When I wouldn´t care about you, would I help you? What amusement do I get out of going over your Light Novel and correcting grammar errors? It may be the only thing I do on this wiki, besides writing long paragraphs about you, but that doesn´t mean I do this to my amusement.
Indeed, most people here don´t care about you. We have something like a working relationship. We work together to keep this wiki updated. I also don´t care personally about others, since I don't know them. It doesn´t mean I want to hurt them. Being friendly to everyone and helping others is essential to growing the wiki.
I´m certain that people don´t hate you here. But there to 100% annoyed. Nobody hates you because your different. They hate your actions.
Amusement to you, but not to me. And I know and most of the people here wants me gone. Even most of the mods on the Wikia and Reddit...mostly Chystal...don't want me around and want me gone for good, and I know you would too. If people were to ACTUALLY help me to get Ricardo's arm back or Ricardo never loses his arm in the 1st place, then the situation would be different and my personality would be different. I even made a petition about it an no one wanted to join. I know you're tryin to make me feel good, but you're giving me late false sympathy that I still feel nothing. And I know people do hate me for this. My love for Ricardo, a race that is not human or at least human-like, it's pretty obvious that 99% of people supports human only species in the anime community because the majority of people are racist towards non-human race. And I saw it first hand. So not only both of you want me dead and not get Ricardo his arm back, but also want to end all non-human races from the series forever. Because when you think about it, there's not a single non-human character other than Ricardo that is in the series, and we all know that both Subaru and Tappei, along with Akatsuki, Fujino, Yusagi, Maruyama, and most of authors that appeared from Quartet, are racist because they don't want a non-human character on their team. It was pinpointed from the begining since there was no merch around them, no fan art, no doujins, nada. And people do hate me because I'm defending the race that people hate, like MLK.jr defends Rosa Parks defending her seat. But I guess we don't have a rl anime MLK to defend furry characters. And now you see why people hate me and want me gone.
You seem to be deluding yourself into thinking that people are being hateful for no reason. People don't hate you because you like Ricardo, people hate you because you're being annoying about it. Sturmmagier is trying to help you out but you're ignoring him because he doesn't feel the same way you do. Of course nothing's going to help, you're not even trying to accept that help
In addition to the above, people most likely aren't supporting your petition because unlike you they don't think a missing arm makes a character any less than they originally were. Losing a limb isn't poor writing
Because no one supports you, you're overexaggerating that people hate non human races. There are plenty of non human races in Re:Zero, and your claim that characters/authors being racist is ridiculous; not everyone needs to have a Kobold like Ricardo as a part of their camp, and the Emilia Camp is headed by a non human girl. Just because a series doesn't have a non human character doesn't mean they're being racist. Just because people won't talk about Ricardo doesn't make them racist. At this point you're pretty much lashing out at people because they won't give you what you want
Your comparison is ridiculous as well; you aren't defending a race, you're defending Ricardo. If you actually cared about non human races getting ignored in Re:Zero, you'd be arguing for the sake of other characters as well
I'm not being deluded, I just know that people do hate me, and I know you do too. That's why I'm the most trash alive...
It is poor writting. Because losing a limb makes it worse. Because when you think about it, he never has a backstory, he's underdeveloped, he's moody than before, and he's the only one who isn't OP like most of the cast. Ricardo losing his arm makes him worse and we dont need another limbless in the series, Al is enough. And plus, this is my uncle youre talkin to, and hes not a character, so of course I dont want to see him armless. Thats a misreprisentation to my late uncle. And theres so many wrongs that is happening in Arc 5.
Yeah, plenty of non-human characters......as background instead of being in the front lines. The only one who is non-human is Ricardo. Everyone else is human like: Garfiel, Emilia, Rem, Ram, etc. Because they all look human with human features. Im not lashing out because of that. Im lashing out because they are attacking my uncle for no reason.
Of course im defending Ricardo because hes the only non-human being in existance of Rezero. There is no one in the series that is like Ricardo or anyone that is outside of RZ. Why doesnt Tappei abuse the World Building system to create more like Ricardo is beyond me. He is just restriacting himself to create just human characters. Remember when Arrachia was meant to be an actual Dog-human? How did that turn out? Just a regular human. Its a fantasy world where humans and demihumans lived together. Why not go all out instead of staying in one species? Its kinda counterproductive and giving us broken promises.
I anticipated resistance and denial. But I hoped you wouldn´t be this delusional. It´s worse than I thought. It borders on paranoia. While I would like to help you more, I can´t. I don´t even live on the same continent as you. Neither are you willing to let me help you. There isn´t much I can do. In the end, it's your life. So when you want to rot away then that's your choice. I can´t stop you. I tried to help but the first step, to take the help you get. That is something only you alone can do.
Should a miracle happen and you want help. You know where to find me. All I can say I have a pretty good idea of how your life went and is going to end.
Me getting a "psychiatrist" =/= help in any shape or form. The only one who can help me is Ricardo and people who actually wants Ricardo his arm back and tell Tappei to give it back even by spamming to him. And you should know that because he means to me unlike anyone else. Not an actor, not a family member, not a famous person, no one but him. Why do you think my OC is based off of? Plus, iirc from arcs 3 & 5, he did major stuff throughout, but he gets nothing in return but instead he gets thrashed on, not even Subaru gives him anything back in return. What was that again about characters/authors being racist is ridiculous? There was a point in Arc 4 that Subaru promises he won't be selfish and get everyone alive and unharmed and get a happy ending. Where was that in Arc 5? He also could've use RbD. But no, without any reason, he choses not to. So thats a big plothole and a retcon. Even his own camp members are being racist towards him. It was really obvious based on how they treated him. It's like not only the characters/authors being racist, but the audience too up to the point that there's no fan art nor doujins of him comparing to how many fan art/doujins that Rem, Emilia, Julius, Reinhard, or even Otto has. Even Puck got one doijin even though he's not a major character in any of the stories. And also, based on your words and expression @Sturmmagier, it seems that you have stopped caring about me. sigh Just like with everyone else. Even a warning means that they do hate me.
Can you all just stop this shit? I'll be honest, this used to be funny to look at, but now it's just a waste. It's not productive. Howlingwolfjoey , you seem to be overly obsessed with a fictional, let me say that again, FICTIONAL character. I don't know if it's all ironic and I'm just out of the loop, but you need to get some help. Sturmmagier. Stop responding. Stop trying to help. You'll just end up making Joey do something to get "transported to another world". It would be nice if you didn't say anymore.
@Dtousa Have you...not read what I just said previously? Ricardo is NOT fictional. He is my Uncle's reincarnated vessal, my new father, and a husbando/waifu. Yeah, need help to get Ricardo his arm back and not to be replaced with an 1-arm imposting freak by Ricardo's doubleganger.
How about you go spam Teppei Nagatsuki's twitter until he blocks you huh? If I were your uncle, I'd be ashamed that my delusional nephew keeps on comparing me to the background character of a Chinese cartoon. From what your real uncle might've been through, it seems like he'd need your love more than some damn demi-human.
Yes, you have. This is what other think of. People stopped caring when they see a furry because they're not "human-like". But when people talk about armless people, which the trend has been overused to death in Sekiro, SAO, DMC, etc. people don't mind it, and that disgusting and I don't want my uncle Ricardo to be in that trend. It's not good idea nor good in general, it downgrades him, and it's too cliche. It really needs to stop.
Not to mention that the super rough and and horrible SS talks too much about the Imposter Ricardo's arm that it needs to stop and made you regret that he loses it and begs Tappei to give it back.
Every fictional character is made anthropomorphic or given some human quality to make them relatable and give them personality. Ricardo and many other non-human anime characters are anthropomorphic; they talk, walk on two legs, etc. So, the whole argument that we hate characters that aren't human-like is flawed, in that there exists varying degrees of human-like qualities in all such characters.
Moreover, to say that we Re:Zero and anime fans in general don't like characters that are less human-like in appearance is just untrue. There are plenty of characters that do not have the same moe cuteness and are not as human-like in appearance that people love (honestly Patrasche is terrific). I think your argument that there is a lack of regard for Ricardo is misguided.
It actually has to do with the amount of relevance he has in the the main storyline. Name a single Re:Zero in which he has played a central role? He hasn't, but this is okay. The story has a long way to go, and characters that were initially unimportant in the grand scheme of things can still become fan-favorites and largely relevant. A lot of the content released about the respective camps isn't even translated yet, so just give it more time.
Now I can see that you're lying. For the millionth and bazillionth time, Ricardo is not a character, he's a person and a reincarnated vessel for my Uncle and my new father! You're just sayin' it because you favorite "human" characters like Felix, Emilia, Ram, Mimi and Garfiel got their main arcs early while Ricardo doesn't have a main arc...or, you're just sayin' it because you don't have a character to relate with your late family member to reincarnate into. Maybe that's it.
Again, you don't have to hide behind a mask. You're just sayin' that because you like human characters and they get more spotlight than Ricardo. and Patrasche is neither a human nor a furry, she's just an animal that plays no major roles in the main story. Besides, you like human characters because they are "moe" and "kwaii" while Ricardo fits none of those, which i find it racist, sexist, and migonistic...
Ricardo did play a central role in Arc 3 and the flashback from Arc 4. Without him, Subaru would've been stuck on the same loop 10x as much and the camp side stories nor the Tenpenshuus are less likely gonna get translated since YP has no interests in them and the fan translators aren't gonna translate them and want to focus on other camps other than Anastasia's, and Julius got his own EX story and we don't know who i going to be in the next EX since the LNs, both Tanpenshuu and the main, was delayed. And it'll likely going to be Ricardo's next since Anastasia's camp EX story just started and Tappei can't just end it in just 1 volume. But if Ricardo doesn't get an EX story or doesn't get his arm back, it proves that all of you, the readers, and Tappei himself don't care about Ricardo and all you care is nothing but another human feminism waifu bait like every other generic anime/LN series, and well have enough of that. Not to mention that it'll be your fault for the reason why there hasn't been many Ricardo fan art and there's isn't a single Ricardo doujin.
Stop being butt-hurt. Jesus Christ, Ricardo just needs more screen time and more relevance. All of your claims of misogyny and racism are absurd and showcase a fundamental misunderstanding of the concepts or trolling of untold degree.
And, don't disrespect Patrasche. We all know Patrasche is the OG.
