Shinn has trouble holding on to the women in his life! Fate, or sheer bad luck?

The first and most obvious instance of this, is his little sis Mayu's tragic death.

Then there's poor Stellar. Shinn promised to protect her, and, no matter how hard he tried, he just could not.

After that, he promised Lunamaria that he would protect her too, and I started fearing for Luna's safety ever since! Y'know, Shinn's built up quite a reputation.

Is Shinn doomed to lose everyone he holds dear, or will a four-leafed clover do the trick?
:D Let's hear your thoughts!

Well, he couldn't really do anything for Mayu. A stray blast from a mobile suit can't really be prevented, so that was bad luck I reckon. As for Stellar, again he didn't really have enough power to prevent her death.

But whats with those wierd options. Fate? How do you decide whether something was "fated" to happen or not, especially in an anime where the destiny of the characters is created by the producers. To suggest that he might be "doomed to lose everyone" is rather extreme. A better option would be whether Shinn is just too weak/imcompetent, or cursed with bad luck.

So to sum it up, to decide between your options, bad luck.

Maybe Lunamaria will turn out to be his good luck charm! (I sure hope so, because Shinn doesn't need another tragedy in his life!)

*starts laughing* no offense, but the title 'Shinn, victim of bad luck?' amuses me. Greatly. Yeah, that was what I was thinking. The lists includes Stellar, his family, Rey, hmm... who else? Ah well, maybe he IS an omen of bad luck. As for Lunamaria... ah well, maybe she's his fated soulmate? *swt -not a fan of such 'fate' and 'destiny'*

Bad Luck?! I couldn't call what you said as luck. It was his fate to go through all that hardship and pain. I pitty him for that. His sister's death was inevitable. People die in war and unfortunately Shinn's family were among them. Stellar's death was tragic but inevitable too. He made a promis that he, nor anyone else, could fulfill in war. About Luna I don't have any comments. Athrun and Kira made the same promis respectedly to Cagalli and Lacus. Nothing happened to them. I don't think anything would happen to Luna either. Unless they plan another pair for him! (How Ironical!)

There is no such thing as bad luck of that kind. He always had a choice so It was a bad decision on his behave. It's does not matter if other people influanced him he still made the decision in the end so was happen did true other the was he want. so it was not bad luck but a bad decision.

NO! I don't think so! its just fate! I mean he's made friends and he also was able to find himself a nice girlfriend!

Shinn made promise which he can't fulfill, that's the fact. Stellar's death is the prove. But again, in war there's always a promise which someone can't fulfill it. About Mayu, well, can't say anything 'cause... it's too sudden. So about Shinn the victim of bad luck ? Hmm... well, Fukuda want to make Shinn like Camille in Gundam Zeta. But unfotunately, he failed. I can appreciate Camille's bad destiny, but for Shinn, sorry but no.

I shall die before it's all begin... for I don't have any future with me...

Well my opinion is that it was destiny. However, it was the War which affected his destiny, as well as his choices and decisions. "Pain creates sorrow, sorrow creates hate and hate creates grudges." That is one simple sentence which sums it up for him.

Well I think
1. It is Shin fate
2. Shin can't control his emotional (if he did not know the stellar inside (i forgot what that mecha) he will surely killed her and he obsesed to freedom ) because he only want to revenge (with kill anybody who stood in his line(enemy))

Fate seems to have dealt poor Shinn seems to have been dealt a terrible hand... But, as miyunofire has said, at least he found a nice girlfriend! ^_^

He is probably meant to be the opposite of Kira. Not a very happy ending for him in the end of his current life. He needs to face it, like me.

The opposite of Kira? That's an interesting way of analyzing it! I'll keep that in mind the next time I watch Destiny!

I really think Shinn deserves someone better than Luna. Although she's comforting person, I still think that she'll be a hindrance to Shinn's personality growth. It's very unfortunate that both Shinn's love interests evoked more negative traits in him than help him understand his mistakes. He was a pessimist character from the beginning, and those two girls -especially Luna- did not help change his point of view at all. Believe me, if a girl like Lacus, Cagalli, or Mirriallia had crossed his way, he would for sure develop just like Athrun and Kira. (Or even our naughty Dearka! :D)

Mayu was tragically bad luck. Stellar was the logical end result of him falling in love with a powerful fighter from the opposing side. Sad, but how did he think it was going to end? At least Luna managed to survive the series - I think poor Shinn would snap completely if he lost another girl. It's lucky he didn't develop a relationship with Meer. ~_~ Although even though it wasn't a romance, I imagine he would have been pretty sad about Talia dying at the end of Destiny.

It's true that Luna probably won't evoke the same strong change in Shinn as Cagalli and Lacus did in Athrun and Kira, but maybe with a bit of help, they can find their way together. Luna will always support Shinn, so there's hope. Hopefully Luna can beat the Shinn Asuka curse!
