*watchmen

Husbando chart, tho I limited myself to one character per series (I cheated a little) otherwise I’d have a chart five miles long filled with Otokojuku/Ippo characters.

From left to right, starting from the top:
Archer (Fate/Stay Night); Rom (Machine Robo); Little Mac (Punchout); Nekomaru (Super DanganRonpa 2); Kid (Eyeshield 21)
J (Sakigake! Otokojuku); Shirabe (Sweet Fuse); Nishi (Ashita no Joe); Nite Owl (Watchmen); Chihiro (Hinomaru Zumou)
Mashiba (Hajime no Ippo); Benkei (Getter Robo Armageddon); Akihiko (Persona 3); Snake (Metal Gear Solid 3); Doijima (Persona 4)
Chibodee (G Gundam); Ryu (Mobile Suit Gundam); Alistair (Dragon Age); Nekketsu (Rival Schools); Kuwabara (Yu Yu Hakusho)
Jetstream Sam (Metal Gear Rising); Jounouchi (Blazing Transfer Student); Gamagori (Kill la Kill); Shokichi (Terra Formars); Sub Zero (Mortal Kombat X);
Gai (Nadesico); Bean (Riding Bean); Rei (Hokuto no Ken); Nicolas (Gangsta); Michael (GTA V)
Cobra (Space Adventure Cobra); Josuke (Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is not Crash); Obi-wan (Clone Wars); Optimus Prime (Transformers); Kenzaki (Immortal Hounds)

You know what? I’m sick of this post-2009 notion that Zack Snyder’s Watchmen ending improved on the ending of Alan Moore’s book. The squid alien rules and makes total sense. The Dr. Manhattan ending is a convenient solution to the “oh shit how are we supposed to properly set up a colossal psychic squid alien in a 2-3 hour movie” problem, but it’s not an improvement.

I heard joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he’s depressed. Life seems harsh, and cruel. Says he feels all alone in threatening world. Doctor says: “Treatment is simple. The great clown - Pagliacci - is in town. Go see him. That should pick you up.” Man bursts into tears. “But doctor…” he says “I am Pagliacci.” Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. Curtains.
