  • I've heard a number of complaints about Yen Press' decision to use "Machiavelli" instead of "Villain." Personally, I don't mind it and I think it suits the context perfectly fine. Sure, it's a tad longer to say than "villain," but Shiroe's more Machiavellian than he is villainous.

    Opinions?

    • Machiavellian is just not a common word. It might suit him better, but I think less people know what it means. I don't really have a preference, I guess.

    • Well, the LH novels are designated as being for 13 and up. Maybe my education was just weird, but I knew about the existence of Machiavelli and The Prince, and the general gist of the treatise, by the time I was that age.

    • I didn't learn those things in school. ^^; I didn't learn about Machiavelli until college. Maybe my education is weird...

    • I like both i just think that Villian fits better because it seems more like a phrase that people in an MMO would use and machiavelli in glasses just doesn't have the same feel to it.
