The saviour of the universe.
I can still remember those days – imitating the strongest Kamehameha to defeat an evil villain. That time, if you’re a DBZ fan, Gohan was having a hard time defeating Cell while Goku is coaching him from the afterworld.
Those scenes for me describe what “epic” meant.
Fast forward to this present time. I realized that my dominant idealistic roots came from watching anime that feature good vs evil. Perhaps playing RPGs contribute to them. I fell in love with the story of the underdog good beating the overwhelming evil.
