2014 Anime Villains Tournament Round 2, Match 52
In this match-up, we have Darcia The Third from Wolf's Rain vs. Zolf J. Kimblee from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.
Kimblee from Brotherhood? I think he was much more impressive as a villain in the original FMA. Oh well; I still need to watch Wolf's Rain, but while I'm not familiar with Darcia The Third, I think I'd still vote for Kimblee. He turns people into explosives, and he relishes it.
I take the opposite view myself. The original show's Kimblee is your garden-variety psychopath. Brotherhood's Kimblee is not only a psychopath, but a philosopher and gentleman.
Regardless, though Kimblee was one of my picks, I have to give my vote to Darcia, possibly the most genuinely sympathetic anime villain ever.
I have a HORRIBLE obsession with Zimblee as a character.
And that is the reason why this match up pains me so much. Because these are both two great characters. That said Darcia gets my vote because I feel like he is a better put together character while Zimblee is mainly just fun to watch.
I vote for Kimblee.
Voted for Kimblee.
In the end I'm fine with either moving on, though it pains me to know that we have to lose one of them in only the second round.
Darcia The Third!!!
Tough choice, but I give the edge to Darcia The Third.
