1. Because Inari is complex as fuck
2. That not even his wife or daughter could understand him
3. Even so he’s a big baby, constantly worried that he is worthy of his family.
4. Because Koto gave her brother & father a good beating
5. No fool should mess with her, she’s half Buddha- half God
6. And she’ll tell it like it is
7. but mostly because she’s just a cute lovable daughter trying to reunite her family
8. Because although Yakushimaru says he hates his dad, he loves him to no end and will protect him always
9. Because the story has wonderful themes i.e. Alice in Wonderland, Through the looking glass, yet is enriched in religious inspiration permeated by imagery and symbolism.
I do not seek salvation in the next life, I merely strive to be true to my station in this life.
10. Because Inari’s dad aka God slapped some sense into Inari
plus wtf is up with his form?
11. Because Shouko is a cutie >.<
12. Because we all know the head priest was just doing what was right, and we all wish him the best in his life <3
13. And finally, because although this story was compromised of many themes, it always reverted back to it’s family roots packing for us many emotions
A boat, beneath a sunny sky
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July-Lewis Caroll
I liked - no I loved - the fact that Historia stood up for Ymir when Connie was talking less of her, but…
…can we take a second to talk about the way her own parents treated her? The fact that they neglected her and were even ashamed to claim her as their own?
Reading chapter 52 literally felt like someone was tearing my heart to shreds. Historia, someone who was viewed by her friends as some sort of goddess, being treated like vermin by the people that should have loved her, but didn’t.
Every chapter of this manga has been heart-wrenching and worthy of hitting us ‘right in the feels’, but I’ve gotta say: this one hurt, a lot and while I’m happy to get some insight on Historia’s past, I can’t help but feel sorry for her.
And I just…where the hell was Ymir anyways when Historia needed her to pull her into her arms and tell her that everything is going to be okay! D’:<
seriously look at this shit im so upset
so i’ve only watched the first part of the four part finale so far and it’s like…
WOW MAKO IS BACK 2 CHEATING ON ASAMI??? HOW COULD ANYONE HAVE POSSIBLY SEEN THIS COMING? NOT LIKE MAKO DOES NOT HAVE ANY PRECEDENCE FOR DOING THIS KIND OF THING! WHODA THUNK!
seriously it the show expecting us to believe that Asami would be surprised by this, that she would have even gone back to Mako in the first place and not expected this to happen? that she has no memory or foresight at all?
We’re getting no fucking insight into why she’d have gone back to him in the first place, no nothing. If it was that Asami has zero self-esteem and is throwing herself into an abusive relationship because she’s seeking some familiarity and stability in a desperately shitty like, and you can at least always count on Mako to be Mako- if we were going to have a kickass character arc where Asami realizes this and has to develop and heal and Mako gets called out on his shit, then it would be interesting
but no, that’s not it, because the show doesn’t think of Asami as a character. There’s no thought given to her at all. She is just a prop to create more love triangle bullshit drama. No thought is given to her development or motivations, she’s just there to be tragic and surprised as Mako fucks her over again
And LITTLE GIRLS AND BOYS ARE WATCHING THIS SHOW AND LEARNING IT’S ACCEPTABLE TO ACT THIS WAY- a show that says it’s okay for guys to kiss girls without their consent, guys will get that girl to forgive them and want their d if they do something appropriately manly. A show that says its perfectly normal for a girl to repeatedly go back to a guy who cheats on her, not at all indicative of a serious problem. And if a guy repeatedly cheats on a girl, it’s totally okay for the circle of friends not to call him out on it and cut him off.
I’m disgusted at Bryke.
scarletsunshine asked: lolll i was just browsing the tag and 'i hope they remain like robots no emotions all that crying was too much for me' and i was like EXCUSE ME
Like, I agree the initial crying was a little overplayed just from a pacing perspective (the pacing of episode 2 was weird as fuck, fortunately episode 3 was better) but the fact she cried is not a bad thing at all and gave a side to her- she was trying to save these people and they aren’t letting her, and that is her purpose??? She’s obviously very compassionate? And her crying when that lady let go of her hand and fell to her death was very well done, esp.
LIKE HOW DARE YOU CRY OVER PEOPLE DYING TURN IN YOUR STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER CARD!!!! i guess
It was pretty clear from the beginning all the girls were full of emotions. If you’re looking for an anime with emotionless robot clone girls with no agency this AIN’T IT.
Can we just talk about how nearly every character featured in today’s episode had a ridiculous change in character at one point or another? It seemed like one giant Ember Island episode gone wrong.
Asami: Highly intelligent and independent character is suddenly unable to make any decision for herself and is literally just guided through the whole damn episode until she suddenly decides it’d be cool to kiss her ex-boyfriend who just broke up with her good friend? What
Bolin: Highly compassionate character shown to be nothing more than a young guy looking for friendship is seen…
-Rejecting is only living family member in his time of need
-Making sexual advances on a coworker against her clear disapproval
-Disrespecting an entire culture by making a mockery of it
Lin: Extremely dedicated police chief shown to be willing to do anything to seek justice rejects the biggest lead Mako has on who is committing these thefts because he’s “a beat cop” and the two officer jerks say he’s wrong? What
Korra: Well she lost her whole damn memory, ‘nuff said there.
And last but certainly least offensively changed,
Varrick: I mean we all saw this “plot twist” coming, but wow. His entire character just gained a depth that I’m hoping I’ll like down the road but that I’m not quite sure I like now.
All in all though, everyone was a mess.
wolfennights asked: Haibane Renmei/Serial Experiments Lain?
I’ve seen Haibane Renmei! It was pretty good, though sometimes a little to slowly paced for my tastes. I really liked the ending and the lady love.
Is any interpretation of this show valid? Because I interpret them all as suicide victims who couldn’t ask for help, and Reki was finally able to ask for help in the end thanks to Rakka reaching out to her. ~
I haven’t seen Lain yet.
themetaisawesome asked: Wolf's Rain.
my friend Justin showed me that and YEAH. That was some ending! YOU CAN’T REALLY GET MUCH MORE DEPRESSING.
But the characters were interesting and I liked the designs? I remember there was a darkskinned wolfguy who wore leather voiced by Crispin Freeman who acted like a LONE WOLF but really had a weakness for the adorable timid little kid who looked like an anime version of Bart Allen (okay Bart Allen’s already very anime) and generic protag guy, chubby easygoing wolf guy (who wasn’t really chubby?) and Blue WHO WAS MY FAVORITE, sole ladywolf and mega badass, v attractive in human form.
Anyway the little kid’s death was the actual fucking worst like it was terrible what the fuck show. literally everyone died though
There was also science lady love interest to someone (she died first) and weird flower girl?
it was fucking weird show and now I’m remembering it THANKS A LOT.
