Because she doesn't care about something so trivial. She's lived for at least 1000 years and is amazingly intelligent, right? Surely she's put things into perspective by now. (I didn't though, so too bad)

>nor would it be some normalfuck

Obviously. That's my point. Yukari is centuries old and lives an illusory existence. She has no doubt experienced things that no human could ever comprehend. She invades the moon on a whim.

Not to mention she's a youkai, so her view of "love" and "sweethearts" is probably nothing like the human view, if she has one at all.

To Yukari pretty much everyone on Earth is going to be a "normalfag". How could you ever impress her? At most you'd be a novelty.

So basically "sweetheart" anon is projecting pathetic "romantic" ideals onto something from a reality where those ideals have no ground. Disrespectful to Yukari at best.

Ideas of romance in the love definition would likely be tired and silly to her, but if your implying romantic philosophy as opposed to hard rationalism is baseless for her..well...I disagree. Whimsy and acting on it is a form of romanticism, as with rationalism there is no reason to do it unless it has logical justification. That would drive her fucking insane, shes immortal and omnipotent. Though really, her thought process and philosophy would likely be something completely alien and otherly from anything we know. Shed sound like a rambling madman if she wrote it down, to us. Such is near omnicience, immortality, and omnipotence.

>> No.8922594

I'm not sure what you mean, Anon. Of course there are many other places like Gensokyo. Secluded places where youkai live, because they no longer have any place in this world. It wouldn't make any sense if this wasn't true.

However, Gensokyo is not a location in the Japan that we know of. Our Japan's Yatsugatake is much smaller than Mt. Fuji, for example. But as for Gensokyo's Yatsugatake, that one is roughly the same size, or perhaps larger.

My theory is that it occupies the same spatial coordinates as the Yatsugatake mountain range, but it's sort of like a different plane of existence, or a different dimension. Like multiple layers of reality.

Let's just assume for a moment that my Yukari is indeed one of my desilusions.
The real Yukari, being obviously a being far superior i'll gladly admit it, couldn't possibly be NOT aware of my current relationship with, let's assume again for simplicity, a small incarnation of herself.

If she was that mecontent about it, she would already have done something about this.
Yet i'm still here, having my perfect relationship with my sweetheart.

We can only draw 2 conclusions for it :
- She doesn't care, meaning that it's my right to have my lovely relationship with her small incarnation.
- She does care, meaning that it may even be possible that she actually wants to be my sweetheart.

Its not overly complicated. It would just appear so to us because its had so much time to evolve and mature. If she wrote a book on it, and dropped it off somewhere on earh...well, we couldnt know actually. It wouldnt be easy, but men could spend anywhere from "a pretty long while" to lifetimes studying it. If it wasnt deemed crazed ramblings for the reason I stated. Such is the gap between human knowledge, and, as I said, immortality with near omnicience and omnipotence.

yes. But the rules govern the residing youkai as well as humans. No youkai hunting, no human eating. Thats also why combat is done with "spellcards" and non-lethal danmaku.

It's useless, Anon. It's all useless. The spell card rules are merely terms for a duel, and they are voluntary. You can choose to fight without using them, if you so desire.

>There's no such thing as an overly complicated thought.

Let me reiterate: Yukari is a youkai. Her thought process is not human. Of course we can try to interpret her actions in a human way, but we should always be aware that we're viewing her through a biased lens.

Think of it this way: it is already a stretch to attribute human thoughts to domesticate animals like dogs and cats. Some people don't feel such animals can ever really "love" or "want" things, yet in normal conversation it is often said that dogs "love" their owners, or that cats "want" to sleep all day.

Go a little further out from domesticated animals: do bears, whales, and owls have humanlike thoughts?

Consider that these animals at least share our environment, not to mention the fact that we are all connected in an evolutionary sense. Yet we are still hesistant to allow that they think like us.

Then consider that youkai are mythical, alien, supernatural creatures, effectively MONSTERS from another world. You're telling me they're going to find a /jp/ autist "charming". Alright then.

>> No.8922705

Only one anon mentioned Yukari.

>> No.8922726

You cant know that she wouldnt or not. The very alien nature of her thought process does not let you make any such assumptions like that. Also, I tend to think youkai think more like humans than any other non-human entity. Somewhat close, but still not like us. The difference between youkai-human thought on the whole, my theory is, is about as alien as say...american culture to japanese, if both were to develop isolated from culture from the rest of the world. Again, all speculation. But I maintain we couldnt understand her thought process without study, but because of omnipotence and immortality.

the million-dollar answer

I'm not saying Yukari is insane, but she is both from a group of species that live off fear, and has lived for a fucking long time, it is a poor assumption to think you'd be able to figure out what goes on inside her head.

>> No.8922732

I and a majority of other people on this planet, freely killing others is not conducive to survival as a species so it bothers a great many people.

Its also really a thing of fairplay, but if he doesn't want to play fair than he's going to have to face the same as what he intends.

There's of course the eternal problem of whether or not even if he "succeeds" that it is all for nothing because she does not reciprocate his feelings.

This whole conversation makes me feel guilty in all sorts of ways, to even slightly condone killing I think is horrible, and thinking this much about actually being there and whatnot.

>> No.8922927

Even if you condone some form of murder, that does not make you a psychopathic serial killer or something of the sort.

Humans everywhere have this strange notion that animals are less entitled to life simply because they do not think like we do. But, murder is just murder, you can't make some arbitrary exception like "it's not murder if it's justice" or "it's not murder if it's self-defense" or "it's not murder if they're not sentient."

In the same way, is it truly unreasonable to think that, for different individuals, there may be other "acceptable" circumstances for murder? Just one example is that humanity has all but destroyed nature, completely, and the majority of them are not in the least regretful of it. And, many youkai are deeply connected to nature, and therefore may feel that humans are the ones who are less entitled to life.

This is just one of the ways in which youkai may think differently than the majority of humans, and in such a case, it may be very difficult for these humans to understand their thoughts. They may not want to understand. They may simply decide that these youkai are a great threat and need to be exterminated. In this case, who is in the wrong? It's not exactly so easy and clear-cut as that.

>> No.8922948

I was talking about humans killing humans for no better reason than for love rivalry, while is not uncommon, isn't really excusable.

Why do people kill? Isn't it because they see something as being more important than the life of another person? Nobody ever said anything about simply assigning 0 worth to anyone's life. Even I, who have very little faith in humanity, do see some amount of worth in the life of a human. I'm not an idealist by any means, but still not a psychopath.

Most people don't even think about this though. They just call 99% of murderers "psychopaths" when in fact, most of them are probably not anything of the sort. I guess people are just too scared to think properly. Or maybe they're scared OF thinking properly. Maybe they just believe that human lives are worth more than absolutely anything else in existence, I don't know.
