Most people are entranced by life and death situations. At the very least, that is the picture Oku is painting of the common person. In the manga, we saw all those people at the train station crowding around the homeless man, doing nothing to help him. Later, we saw the bikers laughing as Nishi was killed. As the missions become more public, we keep seeing all these people rushing towards the places where violence is occurring (Oni mission, Nuri mission*). Basically, as long as they themselves are safe, they will continue to crowd around the violence. I'm not saying everyone enjoys the violence, but they are captivated by it.
* In the Oni mission, people crowded around as Tokyo fought the Oni boss, and possibly as the "normal" aliens started to transform into their alien bodies. In the Nurarihyon mission, Katou and... that girl (forgot her name, lol) came across a group of people walking around hoping to watch some people get killed by the aliens. I'm not sure if this counts, but hundreds of people seemed to be watching from their buildings as the chaos ensued (They are visible when parts of buildings were destroyed by the H-gun)
maybe in Japanese culture a cat is seen to be no better than a rat or something, maybe I should look that up?
Nishi was nice to that girl who liked him. He could've killed her but didn't.
Nishi has problems. Yes he is misunderstood, but he has issues. We definitely
need a background on Nishi and his family life.
I would love to see what his family life is like. I hope we see it befor the end of the world starts.
Nishi shows little tact when it comes to society. He shows more tact in battle.
I bet shes over-protective and spoils him a lot.
To be a sociopath they both would always have to be fucked up all the time, but both Izumi and Nishi have showed times where they weren't: Izumi saving his girlfriend, Nishi waiting for Kato to get out of the way so he can he finish off Nurharyion.
Remember when Nishi used the H-Gun on Nurari and Kato was still stuck in its arm, he waited till Anzu got a across to help him him out before he fired the H-gun again, he got yelled at by Anzu and his excuse was: "I had to destroy i too, it was too risky". If it was really truly risky he would have killed the arm and Kato with it without hesitation in a second. And for Izumi: a Sociopath wouldn't sacrifice himself to save someone, if he was one he would have used his girlfriend as a meat shield.
I don't know about that, there was that serial killer Manson, I don't remember is first name, had a wife and a son yet at the same time committed truely despicable crimes, he was even released from prison early for "good behaviour". These people can easily fein behaviour that is socially acceptable.
Sociopaths only do things for themselves, the guy you were talking about probably had a family cause it made him feel good. Nishi and Izumi on the other hand both made sacrifices to help others which a sociopath would never do because they only think about themselves 100% of the time.
Nishi didn't wait for Katou to get out of the way, he just shot. That's way
that osaka girl yelled at him and called a snot. Cause Nishi just shot
without warning. But Nishi spared his long time admirer, and didn't even
diss her when she expressed her love him. I think there is more to
Nishi then meets the eye.
