... so? Am I to praise Gosho for exceeding the expectations of people who aren't me?
Also, the premise you're quoting is flawed. It once again makes up a majority and then psychically knows what said majority thinks, thus concludes that "Gosho did actually deliver".I think 7 years is pretty good by current pacing standards
7 years is roughly what it took for the entire Bourbon thing to unfold. And since I can't consider that good pacing, no way can I consider "Ran replying to a confession" taking 7 years to be good pacing either.especially for those who, say, thought it'd take 14 years for her to respond.
And such pacing must be extremely good for those who thought it'd take 28 years for her to respond. Thing is these 14 and 28 people are completely made up, and I'm not entirely sure why anyone should approach the text from the eyes of made-up people? (It's also not a really good argument in the first place. Implying it's good because it could have taken longer is just like saying a thing is better because it could have been worse).
Of course not. This is me we're talking about—I, of all people, am not up to such a task, and through no one's fault but my own (flawed arguments, things I should've realized would come off as ad-hominems, failure to follow the most basic of rules, etc.). Also, my post not only gave off the impression that not only was it a "heh, bet you didn't consider this/gotcha!" on my part, but it also gave off the impression that hypothetical people and still-very-slow-pacing was supposed to win you over. I've still got a lot to learn.
So you're claiming that group—and not a majority, either outside or within said group—doesn't exist? I don't think it's that unreasonable a concept to speculate the existence of such a group.
Not, "hey, that's like objectively good," I mean "that's pretty good for Red herring slowburn lord Gosho Aoyama of 2007–present." And I can guess why you think the latter is quite bad, just on its face.
Again, you're claiming such a group of people doesn't exist—that there aren't people who think that.
But that really depends on context, doesn't it? As well as one's own perspective of either glass-half-full, glass-half-empty, or anywhere in between these two poles (or as my grandmother used to say, "the many intervening shades of gray").
