wow I am so happy to hear that Eridan’s one of your favorites ahh!! he’s such a great character but a lot of people tend to dislike him right off the bat!
Yes! I mean, I definitely don’t blame anyone for not liking Eridan. There are definitely valid reasons not to like him.
But I don’t think that everyone has to hate him because he was ultimately a bad/villainous character. There seems to be this idea that liking a character or having them as your favorite means you must agree with everything they did. Which is obviously not true.
