Their characters are completely different with the only similarity being that they do morally questionable things in the name of justice, only thing is that one is actually doing these things selflessly while the other is doing it for selfish reasons.
Well there is also that both are manipulative bishonen high school geniuses with supernatural influences that allow them to control/kill people in non obvious ways and they both have the same crazy laugh.
There's more. Mainly, they have two entirely different philosophies on power. Lelouch's viewpoint is continuously reiterated as a form of "The only one's who should shoot are those who should prepare to be shot." and when he's cornered he accepts that fate. On the other hand with Light the entire series revolves around him being afraid of his own defeat, and when he's cornered he loses his shit like a child. How dare they question Light Yagami. He's Kira! He's God!
you do have a point there, I think it kind of comes down to the kind of upbringing the two had. Light was a pampered rich boy who got his way where lelouch was the banished prince who had to struggle and fight in order to progress. So It makes sense that lelouch would have a lot more resolve in backing his ideals then Light who cracked when he was backed into a corner.
I disagree. Light was following the same ideology he was using from the very first episode for the entire series. He knew that would involve power, control and worship, but those were just perks for the sake of a better world. If all he cared about were power, control and worship, he easily could've taken an approach closer to the corporation who killed people to make themselves rich. He never became more corrupt, he was just so corrupt from the start. Most people wouldn't think about the horrible consequences of actually killing so many people so when he followed through with his plan without mercy, many people automatically associated that with becoming corrupt. But Light was the type of guy who knew exactly how everything would turn out and he still considered it for the greater good.
I partially agree with this. I think Light was still trying to make a better world, but at that point that had kind of taken a back seat in importance to his power trip. It was still there, it was just no longer his primary focus.
I enjoyed the TRAILER for Dragonball: Evolution a million times more than I did what little of the Dragonball anime I've seen
Well as overated as I think DBZ is most of the time I don't think it was quite as bad as its live action counterpart, making goku a angsty nerd was one of the weirdest things they could have done with that character... though that being said I still found that more enjoyable then the buu saga.
So yeah DBZ characters I really dislike, kid trunks and Goten...damn they were irritating and then they somehow got even more irritating when they combined into Gotenks... at least Fat Buu slapped that annoying brat around a bunch... yeah that showed them.
I pretty much disliked all the new characters in the buu saga excluding Fat Buu who was cool. Babidi and company were a bunch of medicre uninteresting villains, the kais were mediocre and uninteresting good guys, exlcuding Fat Buu I didn't care for any of the buus either most of them were either just a brutes who were all "buu smash!" and super buu was annoying for other reasons as he seemed to be the embodiment of everything that was done badly with DBZ villains.
