To those who've followed some of my last entries, you may have noticed that I have a certain disappointment with Sanzaru based on their handling of the Sly Cooper series, along with their leaving us with both a downer ending and little to no word of when (or even if) we can expect resolution. However, when I've posted to Sanzaru's Facebook page to comment as such, I've also tried to be fair in my posts. I've been polite, and I've encouraged others to be more specific than just saying "omg Sly 5 plz." I want to show that I'm more than an obsessed fan; that I'm trying to make a coherent argument.
I say all of this because my most recent post--which was to reiterate that I would really like to see a happy ending for Sly and Carmelita, and that others should be similarly detailed about why they want to see a Sly 5--received a response from someone named "Sion." Unless I'm very much mistaken, this is the same "Sion" who has gained a certain infamy here among fellow Sly Cooper fans on deviantART--particularly because he took exception to my Sly x Carmelita attitude. I present excerpts from his post; censored where cursing was involved, but otherwise unchanged:
"...Are you really that [expletive] stupid.....Sly x Carmelita....do you ever realize the cops [expletive] reputation i mean you humans cannot BE THAT STUPID i mean you can't THIS IS IMMEDIATELY A SLAP IN THE [expletive] FACE TO COPS FROM CRIMINALS Like you..."
"WHY ARE YOU AFRAID OF THEM BREAKING UP I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THEM BREAKING UP! what did the relationship between a Cop and a Criminal EVER DO TO YOU i mean COPS AND CRIMINALS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DATE EACH OTHER you [expletive] Criminal and cop loving [expletive]!"
"STOP SAYING SLY X CARMELITA because [expletive] Sly x Carmelita i mean [expletive] THAT! and therefore i'm going to make my own law and once and for all i will rid the world of Criminal x Cop Romance! "
"ALL HAIL SION X CARMELITA AND [expletive] SLY X CARMELITA fuck....that....GARBAGE!"
Now that I've had the chance to finally experience Sion's attitude for myself, I can safely say that I'm rather appalled. Between his flat-out insults, his lacking literacy, his excessive use of capitalization, and his heavy-handed efforts to shoehorn himself into a relationship with Carmelita, as though he were an established part of the Sly Cooper canon and Sly were a useless outsider, well...
I'm not sure what's scarier--if he might be trolling people, or if he genuinely believes what he's spouting. Not to mention his lack of regard for the Sly x Carmelita crowd is flat-out disrespectful.
