I know we've already done a debate about psycho animes, but I thought it would be good to debate on specific characters.

WARNING: Images and videos contain blood and other content that is very likely NSFW. If you do not like blood, gore, etc., this debate is not for you.

Shion Sonozaki




Shion is Mion's identical twin sister, who currently resides in Okinomiya. In spite of their different personalities, she and Mion often switch places, and it can be difficult to distinguish between them. Their first switch took place when they were little. Right before tattooing the symbol of an oni, which is reserved for the older sister, she was mistakenly identified as Shion, the younger sister, which means that she was actually born as Mion Sonozaki, the older sister. Since then, she switched her identity of Mion with Shion, the younger sister. She was sent by the Sonozaki family to a private boarding school, but escaped and returned to live near her hometown, where she lives with Kasai. In spite of all this, she and Mion maintain a close relationship. She was in love with Satoshi, and blames the Three Families of Hinamizawa for his disappearance in Watanagashi-hen and Meakashi-hen (the latter told from her point of view); this, along with a different demonic sadistic personality she manifested in her grief, drove her to mass murder.

(Music is German...and imo pretty bad =/)

Lucy




Lucy is a teenage diclonius girl, around 18 years old and the central protagonist/antagonist of the series. Lucy has four vectors with a limited range of about two meters. However, she can be swift and lethal within that range, and will use any nearby objects as high velocity projectiles to kill at greater distances. She is also capable of stopping or deflecting most standard ammunition when she concentrates on the task.



(SoaD =D and lol at ending)

Happy debating!

shion, definately
Say you want, you say you need; you can take it all from me.
I'll call the debt one day. Marks of blood you'll have to pay.
Lost on trails of fear and spite, unrelenting, hopeless night.
This twisted dream will die When the Cicadas Cry.

Well... I think both of them are quite insane. It's a hard desition (I got bored)

So, in a quick draw, I choose Lucy... Don't want to explain, really.

Everybody who has seen Elfen Lied episode 1 should know that an anime character more psycho than Lucy simply doesn't exist! XD
I worship Shippuuden: Haruno Sakura :3

I'm completely normal - the voices tell me so...

Shion is more psycho for the simple reason that she is mentally ill, while Lucy holds humanity as, well, inhuman and therefor does not see any reason to let them live. And I think her point of view is pretty defendable considering what she lived. Anyways, Shion gets my vote ^.^

I'll have to go with Shion, for 2 reasons..
First, I haven't watched Higurashi yet (and only just started on the vn), but I've heard that she's apparantly quite a psycho.
Secondly, I don't really think that Lucy is really a psycho O.o Well, sure, she's coldbloodedly killed a bunch of people lots of people, but well, they were mean to her, right?
And she's also got this logical way of thinking anyway, she doesn't just go killing just for the killing ^^,
Protip: I don't really check the forums anymore, so if you want something, take it on my profile.
Is it time for my long-awaited return to the forums? щ(゚Д゚щ) Nope™, probably not.

And as a proud admin of the Psychological Love club, I say that all the arguments defending Shion in the first page are almost completely incorrect. =P Shion IS a psychologically ill character, but she didn't wanted to do what she did at all. But Lucy wanted, did, and she loved doing it.

They are both yanderes! Lucy, to me, is more insane, though. Shion only snaps for a short period of time, while Lucy is crazy basically her whole life. Shion has guilt for most of her murders and goes crazy from them, Lucy only has guilt from one, but goes insane from other stuff. Shion lies a lot about her personality problem, whereas Lucy has serious personality issues.

I own both fanclubs, yay.

Except that anyone in her position would have done the same thing, if given the chance and had her powers. Who wouldn't escape and kill all the people that were involved in torturing you?

Shion is the psycho because of how and why she kills. Lucy although brutal only wants to end the world because of how cruel humans are, but she can't because of her "Connection" with Kouta.

I'll say Shion, she was crazy when she killed Satoko.

Thank you for picking my suggestion :D.

Well, really, they're both pretty bad... But I prefer Lucy, which ended up being the deciding factor, so Lucy.

Nobody posted in a while, but I want to say my part.
Psycho is short for psychotic, it could also mean lunatic, maniac, or just crazy.

Lucy is actually right in the head believe it, or not...she never lost control, she is calm for the most part. (Nana is more psycho than Lucy is.)

Shion on the other hand is the real deal, she is truly a psychopathic lunatic just waiting to go off. She lost control of herself a few times in her arc...ok, she lost it for the bulk of her arc. lol
