  Well, the ones you mentioned aren't really "heroines" they were the baddies,
and most of them were mentally unstable to began with. I mean their tragic
death was written all over their face the first time you were introduced to
them, it was inevitable.

Here is another wierd myth: I heard that when a man sees an atractive strong-
willed woman he fantasizes about either one of 2 things: A) Being with that
woman or B) Killing that woman !!! and it seems that Tomino prefers the later.
