This whole conversation can't get me to stop thinking about the anime
"Terror in Resonance" or the american tv show "the pretender" off of
which that anime is based. Main protagonists were terrorists (and
freedom fighters) in every possible sense except ironically they
refused to kill (anyone) and methodically planned things so they
didn't have to, in addition their NSA-antagonist counterparts try to
foil them by either attempting to force them into a situation where
the only obvious way out is through taking an innocent life forcing
them to be especially clever or overtly threatening innocent lives to
get the "terrorists" to negotiate with them.
It's kinda a subversion of the real life and movie stereotypes of
"terrorists", and somehow this all couldn't stop throbbing the memory
of those two shows. I'm not sure why actually, it's kinda ironic that
Lyberta would remind me of that xD
