And with the majority of your points, you refer to the current Pris. You say that it the insanity is there to be seen prior the fight, yet I don't see it. Insanity and consistantsy are not the same thing either, and that is what you have based some of your opinion on.
As far as who is more sane now, well that is a matter of opinion considering that they both could make any other claymore look sane.
Also if you disslike comparitive disscussion so much, then I would suggest to leave it alone. I mean, it's like seeing old family photos only to say, "hey, you look like grandma at age x," or "Grandpa looks like you exept your nose is diffrent," and you going "but grandma/pa looks nothing like you now!"
Sorry about the late add on reply here. You are right on that front to an extent. The whole "I have someone to fight for" either makes them stronger period, or gets them killed in some horrible way. I'm seeing the second happening right now... although this might be a huge turning point for Miata, and perhaps a chance for her to gain sanity...
Wow, I kinda feel stupid arguing so vehemently with a brick wall. My bad.
<sigh> Moving on...
