Hello, fellow Autor fans! I was invited by puchiko2, and I hope to get some discussion going again. Surely there are still many things for us to converse about concerning Autor, after all. (At least, I certainly keep finding things, LOL.)
And on to the first discussion question: Do you or don't you agree with the English dub staff's assessment of Autor's character as mentioned during the staff commentary of Akt #24? I'll see if I can transcribe it (if no one's done it yet, haha), but the gist of it was interesting. They touched on Autor's insecurity and his need/craving for power (which I agree with), but also mentioned they felt he was the one Drosselmeyer would have wanted as an heir as opposed to Fakir. Considering how Drosselmeyer pretty much ignored him, and mocked the study replica, I don't know that I agree with this. They also said he was morally ambiguous compared with Fakir. Which may or may not be true; I suppose it would depend on your point-of-view. I personally would be inclined not to agree, considering his behavior through his episodes as a whole. But I know it could likely look that way, considering his obsession with the power aspect. (And I still do think that if he actually got hold of the power he longs for, he would be easily corrupted.)
