Meh, I don't care. I still think it's straight-up unfair people are whining about Iris getting screentime when her screentime actually leads to "development" and helps move her closer to her goal of being a Dragon Master. BW gave Dento and Satoshi immense amounts of focus, while Iris was sidelined daily and didn't really do ****. Now that she's getting decent screentime that actually focuses on her goal and truly helps her there's some complaining :/ The Tsutarja/Chillacino episode was really Iris' first "comedy" episode. Pretty much everyone of her episodes besides that, the Drill Buster, the Crimgan, the Ice fear, the Monozu, the Kairyu focus, have all lead to development for her character. Though I can take the Crimgan episode out of the rotation since that episode was more so to establish her goal of wanting to be a Dragon Master rather than developing her character. These Shaga/Dragon Village episodes have the potential to be really good for her character, story, goal, and development. But, no, it gets called "glorification".
I don't understand the dang term anymore. Like "DEM" has lost its meaning and become "Situation/Thing that I didn't like.". "Glorification" has become a term laced with a negative connotation.
Glorification def.-. To give glory, honor, or highly praise.
I wasn't glorified or highly praised in the last episode, at all. No one was talking or treating her like Jesus. Iris wasn't glorified in the WTJC, she was made out to an incompetent trainer who "soils the names of Dragon users everywhere" according to Langley. She won zero battles, her Kairyu did. When Kairyu did start listening, she was beaten by Satoshi's newly evolved Waruvial, abut Kairyu was raging but the canon of the episode told the audience that Iris as a trainer was the true loser.
It just sucks to see people so distraught over Iris moving closer to her goal, then the complaining starts later about how "she doesn't do ****". Dento never gets development or character development and is usually made out to be right all the time, no true character shortcomings whatsoever and all his episodes are usually comedy rather than furthering him closer toward his goal of wanting to be an "S-Rank Sommelier". We don't get a true essence of or see Dento improving, but I never complain about that. I guess that's just how the ball rolls.
I hope the battle is really good and Shaga gets some great focus and I'll be satisfied.
