That information is optimistic.
We're not underestimating her, you're overestimating her.
In the series thus far, Mimi hasn't been able pull out powers like that.
The closest we had to that was when she threw a house.
When compared to all her other fights, was not only more playful, but after that show, she 'weakened'.
Studying the way she had fought in all her other fights, just expresses how improbable it should be for her to win.
In this situation, throwing a house at Skulker should be ineffective.
To the thread
Chi's character. I see nothing unique, yet. People have came and over analyzed Chi before, but they do so without over analyzing the other characters. They do a halfassed 'Yes I did, see!' and move on. Rather than comparing your own opinions with each other, compare to other people's opinions.
Most characters of her type are one dimensional at first, then become unique later on. The problem here is that she's been focused on too much. The only highlights with Chi include, 'her first tantrum we witnessed', 'Her interaction with Him' and 'Blossom'. Which, imo, takes 5 pages, 7 tops, but it took 20-ish pages of 'CHI IN YOUR FACE'?
Many arguments and debates have appeared in multiple threads concerning Chi's 'place' in the comic. All of them ended relatively the same; those that like Chi and those that disliked Chi, respectively remained adamant on the their preexisting opinions. So when making a post, realize that others can argue it.
With the above in mind, I feel like reiterating my views, in an attempt to keep the discussion from repeating itself like all the others.
I don't have a problem with Chi's character, I dislike her, but you can't like every single character you come across.
I also believe, that it's a lack of experience with some posters. They aren't accustomed to see the princesses type character strut their stuff. Spoiled brat that gets it all at first, then the loving misunderstood 'I'll make it up to you my way'.
I've already mentioned the word 'harem' a few times, and people always get jumpy with the word. I think the comic is heading in that direction, never said I liked it, actually I've mentioned a few times how I disliked harems.
The problem with series that follow the, for lack of a better term, 'mainstream harem' style, most girls become the mindless foot soldiers of the protagonist. For me, that's how I view Chi. She'll get her early reception of 'useless', which will transition into 'touching and emotional turning point', then just become background. Whether she dies a good fight, or remains spoiled(but 'enlightened') it's the same for me in all honesty.
It's how many characters similar to her have been in the past.
What sets her apart, is her controversial birth/spawn/creation/blah. That is probably the only thing that 'protects' Chi, the only reason why some readers haven't dropped the series. As if there aren't already unanswered questions.
From what I see, the only thing that can make Chi unique, is her origins. Her personality, upbringing, attitude, emotions, omnicompetence and tantrums have all been done many times in the past. And yes, they've all been done at the same time as well. It's no secret that Bleed's works are influenced by manga/anime, the commonalities are obvious, especially with Chi.
