Hello can you tell me a little about how japan is reacting to the end of bleach in terms of ships? Are they okay with ih? or are they sad like us? sorry bad english
From what I’ve seen on twitter and various forums, they hate it. Period. Everyone and their grandmothers are basically confused as to why Kubo ended it that way and lament the fact that it should have been IR. “Bleach” trended on twitter at one point and the majority of the tweets were basically negative.
There have been Japanese fans who straight up destroyed all their Bleach merchandise (which is pretty extreme, but…) and the general consensus is that they’re not going to waste their money on buying the last volume/ magazine.
Photos from this post. It’s worthy to note that the photos are from Weibo (A chinese forum) but the photos were grabbed off from twitter through Japanese fans.
And this photo and translations from this post shows the Japanese netizens reacting.
Also, according to @daethberry, when the ending came out, people cried at work, refunds were demanded and basically they hoped it was all a joke. Yikes.
And the Bleach Live Action?
Forget about it! Everyone is pretty much “who asked for this?” And the whole thing has turned into a laughing matter. Fukushi Sota, get the fuck out of this production now!
AND PRETTY MUCH MY FAVOURITE REACTION:
Basically, the Bleach Rock Musical cast went “fuck this”, and the actor and actress for Ichigo and Rukia did an impromptu “proposal” to each other in character and every single cast member became a bunch of emotional wrecks. Did I say this was televised and streamed? CAUSE IT WAS, SO THEY HAD AN AGENDA! Go team!
Ya’ll don’t even know how much I love that scene in Civil War where Bucky chooses his weapons from the rack labeled ROMANOFF on the helicarrier. ok. Because that’s his girl. It’s like the assassin version of writing ‘James Buchanan Romanoff’ in his notebook over and over
I sometimes love Harvest moon because, just imagine, a man you’ve been courting for the past weeks shows up at your door at 6 AM and gives you a single egg. He then proceeds to explain what an egg is. He smiles and sheepishly rubs his hand across his neck and then immediately leaves.
in which Spock goes to ritualistically purge himself of all emotion, to try to do away with his human side, and can’t stop thinking about Jim Kirk who he refers to as t'hy'la the ultimate Vulcan term of love and endearment…
and then receives a message via the bonding of their minds about the danger Earth is in
And even the high master T'Sai looking into his mind is like, go back to Jim
ETA: this is from the Star Trek: The Motion Picture Novel by Gene Roddenberry so, out of the pen of the creator
Hi, regarding Regina supporting Emma. I believe they happen mostly back in season 4b, particularly when they went out to fetch Lily. Emma was ready to kill Lily to protect her family but Regina helped her made the right decision by saying that she knew what it's like to succumb into the darkness and that Emma will follow through Gold's plan if she kills Lily. Also, I remember Regina trying to plead Snow's case right before Cruella's death. Emma was not ready to forgive her parents then (tbc)
(Cont) but Regina was able to make sense of how Snow has been trying to
right the wrong things she had done in the past. She was trying to make
Emma see her mother’s point of view. And lastly, when the chernabog was
unleashed in Storybrooke and Regina thought it was chasing her. She
decided to leave Emma’s car and drew it on the town line in order to
protect Emma (of course they didn’t knew then that it was really after
(Cont) anyway, those scenes aren’t particularly Regina showing “support”
to Emma but rather being a voice of reason that Emma can listen to
because she had lived longer and experienced more (esp when it comes to
the “dark side”) and I guess in a way seeing Regina was right both about
forgiving Snow and not killing Lily, her telling Emma what to do or not
to do was the support(?) Emma needed at that particular time. Sorry
this was long but I hope it helps you.
Thank you, that does help! It kinda confirms the sense I was getting, and I know others said this as well, that Regina’s more rational/action-y kind of support than emotional. Like instead of trying to support Emma emotionally herself she’ll try to get her and Snow on the same level so Snow can do it. And of course do what she can to make sure Emma doesn’t go dark and things like that. Almost more like she’s working behind the scenes to make sure that Emma can do what she needs to? And sort of balancing out the “I’m on your side” emotional support from her parents and Hook by being a voice of reason like you said, and telling her some harsh truths when needed.
And now I feel like Regina REALLY needs to figure out that Emma isn’t some innately good beacon of goodness and that it’s a choice and that Regina can make that same choice… It’s almost like Regina’s put Emma on this pedestal and she’s torn between jealousy and admiration and wanting to prove herself, and just like Killian with Liam she feels she can never measure up, but unlike Killian her initial reaction was to be jealous and angry? Idk. Sorry, I’m rambling now, but yes. Thanks for this! It really helped put it all into words for me and got me thinking some more. :D
