“For the record, every time we’ve fought, I was definitely going to win! But every time, he just starts crying and it kills the mood!”

– Feitr Sordsmann, unaware of Maxim Edge’s “Tears of Passion” power boost

Another short break from the Origins arc – figured Maxim Edge could use some more screen time if his patron deity’s going to be a bigger character.

It feels like every shonen rivalry consists of the fun-loving, friend-making protagonist and their edgy contemporary who just takes everything way too seriously. Like, remember when Kaiba threatened to kill himself if he didn’t win that one children’s card game? Or really, everything about Seto Kaiba.
