Before someone asks again: Yes he does say he's autistic, it's not the subtitles.

BUT keep in mind that

1) This was 1985 when people barely knew what autism meant (especially in Japan where some people TO THIS DAY still think it's some kind of mental illness you contract from being neglected as a child)

2) Camille's a giant dick and is probably being a sarcastic asshole

I actually disagree. I don't think you should go on /m/ until you have watched enough shows. Newfags are funny and all, but the gazillionth "just started watching Zeta" thread really gets on your nerve after a while.

I myself started going to /m/ only after roughly six years of watching mecha shows, partly because I knew I'd look like an idiot had I started discussing things I barely knew about at the time.

You know if you'd just come out and said stupid things, people would have corrected you, probably while calling you an idiot, and you'd have learnt faster. Hell really, the majority of /m/ loves telling each other how stupid other people are for not knowing X or having not seen Z or why you're a pleb for liking Y.

Why are you worried about looking stupid or being called an idiot on an anonymous image board? There are literally no consequences for it. I can't imagine what you'd be like having to take real criticism or insults in real life... Or more likely you just avoid all conflict to avoid such a dangerous mentally scarring event.

I like these threads. A good majority of the reason I like watching anything is talking about it with other people. I probably wouldn't have started watching /m/ shows if I didn't have my friends to discuss it with.

And as for getting annoyed about repeated threads on /m/... that's just the way it is, the way any interest board is like. Maybe take a month or two off if it really bugs you?

As much as I like to shit on Japan's poor understanding of mental issues, to be fair, there are a lot of people in America who still think that autism is when vaccinations make you into a nerd. Even professionals can't really agree on what it is and it jumps around with every new version of the DSM.

It's also worth noting that being a newtype- having your mind constantly open and always understanding everyone, even sometimes on a level you'd rather not- is mechanically the exact opposite of being autistic, but ironically most people boil them both down to "acts in a way I can't relate to".

If you look at Kamille as a borderline sociopath that slowly begins forming meaningful relationships over the course of the series as well as a sense of empathy due to his exposure to the cruelty of war, his character makes a lot more sense. He's probably one of the more well-done Gundam protagonists out there.

It's a pretty common ailment.
It's being a short-tempered teen who got brought up by crappy parents.
Add in a touch of the Johnny Cash Effect with regards to his name and it makes sense.

Except for the fact everyone thinks currently airing shows are for bashing relentlessly for stupid reasons, instead of actually discussing them. After valvrave everyone one seems to think it'll be funny to try to run every currently airing show off the board.

I don't know about you but i think the series as a whole made it pretty clear that Kamille hates his name because he is concerned about his manliness and hates his parents. The first thing he does is escape from practice, to see what's happening in the space port, that kid is obviously a victim of interstellar bullying and his stupid teen dream is probably to go off in space someday.

He also seems very anxious, eating his nails and shit, i'ts made clear from the get go that Kamille is totally crazy, and there are legit reasons to back it up. He's always trying to prove his worth and his manliness to the world, but he just doesn't know how to do it properly, on top of that he thinks too much of himself.

It's not autism, just a fucking teenager.
