WARNING: BZG SPOILERS AHEAD

I'm all for the sharing of information over the interwebs in a free and legal manner.  But apparently some huge Vincent fangirl buzzkill is determined to ruin my funtime by constantly deleting all information about Vincent's death from the official Bizenghast wiki:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bizengha…

Seriously.  They add in all this pointless minutae about Vincent doing other stuff and how great and cuddly he is, but they seem to be in super-denial about him being dead, and everytime someone tries to mention it, they go right back in and angrily revert.

At first I didn't care because I don't really take an interest in wikis about me or the things I do, but when I noticed someone ADAMANTLY refused to admit he was dead, I tried to add it back in myself.  It's just sickening to see how much this person or persons slavish attention on Vincent and go blah blah blah about how FREAKING SENSITIVE he is, but won't talk about the fact that HE IS NO LONGER ALIVE OR IN THE STORY.  You'd think maybe that was a little more important than what he did at school that one time?  

Wikis involve spoilers, people. As long as there's a header warning spoilers, it's all right to have them.  And having them means the wiki is up to date.  It's a NECCESSARY THING.  But I'm sure if you go on there, it will have been reverted again in some petty wiki war.  It's really, really, REALLY stupid.  It makes me so crazy, sometimes I just want to ask them to remove the whole article altogether, because it's completely NUTTO.  It makes no sense to get so worked up over something so minor, you know?

And this, friends, is EXACTLY why we can't have nice things.

ALSO, finally got around to watching a few episodes of that Bizenghast iManga thing on Youtube.  WTF BRITISH VINCENT.  Anyway.  The guy who did Edaniel actually didn't do too bad a job.  (I never got around to submitting my own audition for it so I missed out, laaaaaazy!)  You can check out his first appearance here:

I like all the kooky stuff they do in the background while he's talking. It's silly.

High-pitched girly Dinah voice FOR THE LOSE, however.  She's sposed to have somewhat of a deeper voice with a slight edge to it.  Sort of like Mandy from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, but without the sarcasm.

Still, a very cool little mini-series, I suggest you check it out!

I'm pleased to announce that Bizenghast is being made into a book series!  I mean...it's a book series NOW, but it's a comic book series, while this new series is a novel series.  

The books are written by an amazing chap named Shawn who is a professional writer and has a really great voice for the series that I really can't wait to see in the finished books!

I'll be contributing original illustrations to the books, as well the cover art.  But really the best part of this series is all the cool stuff in it...backstory to all the characters and town of Bizenghast, as well as Di and Vi's adventures in the vaults that never made it into the comic series!

I hope you'll all check this series out when it's released, I'm super psyched about it!

I thought it made sense for Vincent to die. He was a bit of hindrance, like when he tried tricking the mausoleum (sp?) with fake gold. If he does come back I don't mind as long it's not like Goku from DBZ. He's dead, he's not, he's dead, he's not... Caving into the fans really messed that up.

not being funny, but i'm kind of glad you desided to kill him off, its a twist on the normal storys. i wanted that to happern at the end of the harry potter books too, because it leaves a huge gap if jk wanted to write another she could bring him back alive or see how the other characters react. so good on you. if people can't accept it then fine... :hug:

Kinda felt it coming--haven't read the volume yet (only have up to 3) but it makes sense. There would come a time when he would hold Dinah back, and I don't think, even with how strong she's become, she'd be able to choose between him and her contract. She would suffer for him as readily as he would for her (is the impression I got.)

I sling-shot on character death at lot, but in the end it's the decision of the author, and they write their world best. (Usually, I still have my doubts about JRK. haha)

You forget that denying what's actually canon/factual/REAL within a story is rule #1 in the Rabid Fangirl Handbook. Or is it rule number three...
Reply
:iconsadwonderland:
sadwonderland Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2008
I thought it was rule 2, right after, "If said fangirl was in the story, all the main characters would fall in love with her or be impressed by how beautiful/mysterious/dangerous she seems."
Reply
:iconcelina-chan:
celina-chan Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2008
Ah, true. Rule 3 must be "all male characters who look at each other/speak to each other/hate each other like burning are not-so-secretly banging each other, despite any and all evidence to the contrary", then.

It's better than just reading along in the story then all of a sudden finding out that one of the characters dies. At least now I'll be prepared, lol.

I agree, I absoulutely hate it when people bring characters back to life when they die. I don't know if you've played a game called Shadow Hearts, but in it one of the main characters sacrifices her soul in order to bring the main character is the heartwrenching act of love. In the normal ending she dies at the end. But of course the game developers had to make a secret ending where you can save her... and ruin the whole story :/

Um....lets say hypothetically....this fan girl did it because she just didn't want it to give away spoilers for others and because of Wikipedia it spoiled the book for her. so she didn't want that to happen to others so she did this and now is really really really really really sorry. Um.... would you except that apology?

But seriously, people need to get over that fact. Yes, it's depressing...but then again...it's a character (no offense should you take offense to this D: ). It's not like he was 'living' in our sort of world. (If you get what I mean...if not, then just ignore me :3 Oh goodie)

Know what, I noticed that. I was on Wiki a while back, and noticed that the line about Vincent's death was written in *LOL SUPAH POOR GRAMMAR LAWLZ*, so I fixed it. Next time I viewed the article, the death line was gone completely.

Fangirls in denial. They will never stop haunting us. HIDE THE RUM.

Charecter deaths on wikipedia are hilarious, really.

On one manga page... the top said

'WAAH! SHE'S NOT DEAD BITCHES! SHE JUST CAN'T BE!' and the rest of it was normal.

The next day, it said

'SCREW YOU HELL YES SHE IS DEAD'. haha. good times.


My fave wiki page was one about Martin Johnson, the lead singer of boys like girls. It was so fangirlish it was funny.


For example: He is currently single. He dumped Hanna Beth's conceited ass, thank goodness. He is straight.

Next Day: He is dating the lead singer of some other band, and they are getting married in a gay-rights state next week. He is not straight.


Which.... I actually bought for about 2 and a half seconds, then I remembered the name of the band (boys liek girls for dear gods sake)

So yeah.
Wikipedia is full of dumbasses.

I am sincerely hoping that you'll give Vincent a reprieve. I adore him as a character. I just went to wiki and saw that someone (probably you) had put that bit of info back in and it's still there. I have accurate empathy for these people though, I was in the same sort of denial when Dumbledore died.

But I digress...

I'll be ok if you decide to leave him dead and buried and all that jazz. But I must tell you, I was disappointed when Edaniel didn't give the eulogy and accidentally call him Kurt.

DUDE I SO CALLED DD'S DEATH. AND EVERYTHING ELSE AFTER THAT. I swear I called:

DD dying.
Snape being good, loving Lily, dying a martyr
One of the twins dying in a final battle
Harry dying and being resurrected in the end of book 7.

I called that crap back in BOOK 5. I'm brilliant.

I called ALL of this.

Also Edaniel wanted to go to the funeral but he had to stay home and watch a marathon of Captain N cartoons. Captain N marathons don't just come along EVERY day, you know.

Killing a character and then bringing them back to satisfy the fans is really cheap. Cept when Conan Doyle did it with Sherlock Holmes, THAT was awesome. But yeah, Vincent is dead and he will NOT be magically coming back to life. People have to die, you know?
