I would love the sword to be sentient, or at least driven by a kind of deeper purpose.
Otherwise it's just a holy sword. While that's cool on its own, it only really makes it a tool. Not a force of nature that is still worthy of being talked about 3 years after it shows up in the story, still sparking lively debate.
I have this feeling that no matter what Bleed/BR chooses (Does this Blade hurt Bell or not) half of us are going to be dissapointed and the other half is going to say "I told you so."
"It's such a fine line between clever and stupid."
The Chronometal Wars, a fan-fiction taking place in the PPGD Universe. Catastrophe is the only certainty.
I see it more as just a tool then an actual being.
It's just the concept of how it can judge whether what its hitting is good or evil which interests me. Like its boundaries, how it would know, does it react instead to the person using it instead of the person its striking, etc.
Personally, I think it looks at the person using it. A evil person would use it against good, while good people would use it against evil.
From a few of my other posts, I'm starting to believe the sword judges the user. And, I'm starting to think that the spirits may help the sword's judgement. Spirits may have passed down the responsibility. If you think about it, in Samurai Jack the world went to shit, the bomb could cause the same issue, so the spirits would still be working on it.
