That wasn't what I was referring to, actually. Nor would I call Meer a villain.
I'm one of those conspiriacy theorists who think that Lacus is manipulating everyone and just sitting there going "Just as Planned" as shit goes down. I think we will eventually see a CE series which has her as the villain and killed at the end.
Maybe it's just wishful thinking, I hate Lacus so much I can't bring myself to like any Rie Tanaka characters anymore.
