My favorite quote from Kubo was what he says near the very end, “this was a happy story. But it certainly could have been a lot happier.”
I just love that. It sums up how he feels about everything, despite the memories he now has and the stories he can share, he still has that grief and sorrow but he isn’t going to let it hold him down.
It also sums up the movie itself, showing that, yes, it’s a story about death, but it’s also just as much about life.
And that’s a quote that I would love to be able to use in one of my own stories; something that can sum up the main character’s thoughts on everything, that can sum up the whole story in a simple line, imply that there’s more to this than you may have previously thought, and I absolutely love that so much. It’s so powerful and perfect.
I love it.
Is it me or have you also noticed the weird policing of bloggers of color who don't like Kyl/x and specifically have issues with how much H#x development there has been outside the movie in comparison to Finn? A Kyl/x blogger actually used the word "ungrateful" and bitched about having to unfollow Finrney blogs because people there were anti-H#x and complaining about how much attention he is getting, and I saw this same sentiment leveled at a black Finnrey shipper because they posted anti-H#x?
