Um, I hope you don’t mind that I changed it into flirting. I didn’t want to do anything that involves like, the s/o being touched without their consent, bc that makes me very uncomfortable, so I changed it into catcalling and flirting. (Which is ofc still harassing someone, especially if they don’t want it!) I’m sorry!! But I hope you enjoy it and thanks for requesting!! – Mod Chiaki

"Across the Universe" thoughts: Keith and Shiro

Ok, so season one starts with more Keith and Shiro buildup…

This whole season I think just proves further that Shiro is meant to be Keith’s weak spot, and that at some point in the future Keith will face a very difficult decision similar to what Akira goes through in the end of Golion.

I thought we were gonna get their background story this season, but apparently not? For some reason we still dunno what this is all about:

Guess they’re saving the best for last..  

Now, my absolute favorite thing about this episode is how different Shiro is..

In season one we’ve seen alot of how Keith acts different with Shiro, and now we see Shiro is very different with Keith aswell. 

He dun have his leader mask on, and he’s not trying to be his all motivational, inspiring, optimistic self, he’s just Shiro. (Which says alot about how he sees Keith I think.)

And it’s hilarious cause real Shiro is apparently just

And I love his dark sense of humor so much!!!  I need more of this Shiro ASAP!

Also he seems so tired of everything, it’s almost like he’s trying to push the leadership role on Keith?

In this episode and in episode 8 aswell. 

And apparently he’s also still incredibly oblivious about Keith’s feelings for him. Cuz It’s obvious Keith doesn’t find his death jokes as funny as he does haha

Like Shiro is all “haha Keith what if I DIE?” And Keith is just “Can you please shut up??? PLEASE” 

Actually that “If I don’t make it out of here” seemed a bit out of place? I dunno, it felt like it was something weird for Shiro to say, specially since now they are together and safe and know their friends are looking for them..

He’s not trying to soothe Keith and tell him everything will be alright and not to worry about him, like you would expect Shiro to do in this situation.

Like he goes from this at the beginning of the episode:

To this by the end of it:

And pretty fast too!

And it’s so weird to me haha, cause we’re so not used to seeing Shiro like that. 

And I LOVE it that he lets Keith take the more ummm.. nurturing role? I… I honestly did not expect to see that from Shiro just yet. Cause I felt like Shiro does see Keith as kind of a younger brother or someone that he needs to always be strong for or be an example for… But this episode I think showed that they are waaaay more equals than I previously thought. (That was a nice surprise.)

Shiro is very openly weak with Keith, and that says ALOT. 

Cause Shiro is not someone who shows weakness easily. Actually this would be the only time we’ve seen him like this. Like he does it through joking around still, but he’s not trying to be the strong responsible person he usually thinks he needs to be. He just really trusts Keith to be that person.

(I can even say It’s almost as if he likes being saved by Keith haha. Like I know he’s injured and all, but in that cave before those monsters start diggin, Shiro’s all “oh no Keith, we’re both gonna die, this is the end *cough cough* come save me, hurry” like wth Shiro?? Where did all your optimism and spirit go suddenly?? It’s like he’s making Keith worry on purpose haha..)

Also, he doesn’t say that “I want you to lead Voltron if something happens to me” thing just once, he says that (very unwelcome line) again in episode 8. Doesn’t he get how much it bothers and scares Keith hearing him saying something like this? He’s either really oblivious or there’s something more to that.

I do wonder if this is just him joking around back there or maybe something is really going on inside him and he’s very sick of everything? I dunno, he did not have a breaking point this season (that I’m really waiting for), and actually he seems to be way better at the being a leader part than last season… So I dunno..

Maybe he’s just trying to get a reaction out of Keith haha

Cuz I mean that smile he gives him after Keith says “Stop talking like that, you’re gonna make it.” 

Like that whole shot, the music, the lighting, the expression, it just screams romance to me. ( Or I dunno, maybe it was just supposed to be an “I’m so proud of you” smile but cuz Shiro is so handsome and sexy he makes it look romantic haha, in that case: voltron animation team get ur shit together! how can I think of that face as a “loving brotherly look”?? chill on the sex appeal a bit, jeez..)

And how on Earth do you go from  

“It takes more than a glowing alien wound and a fall from the upper atmosphere crashing into a surface at what I’m guessing is 25 m/s 2 to get rid of me”  (although I have to say he did sound kinda mildly upset about still being alive than trying to seem unstoppable haha)

to

“I’m gonna die, Keith! Lead Voltron.”

They’re not even in that much danger anymore! Seriously Shiro, Is your wound really that bad now or do you just want to see some love from Keith? Suck it up a bit man, you dunno what the thought of losing you does to that kid.. (Also the thought of being in charge of all those Voltron clowns I guess haha)

Maybe he’s just trying to compliment Keith and tell him how highly he thinks of him but like IN THE WORST WAY POSSIBLE

Your commentary for tmnt is fantastic. When watching requiem I felt that good writing is being substituted by very graphic, albeit epic and well done, fight scenes. If I had a kid I'd be fine with them watching the first few seasons, but not this. Splinter getting tossed like that seemed unnecessary. Most deaths that I can think of from great kids animation were offscreen-- like Mufasa, or Jet in tla. It seems gratuitous at this point. What do you think?

Oh wow, thank you! Sorry this reply is late, I spend far too long thinking about this.

So yeah… overall I have to agree. I’m not usually opposed to violence in cartoons (then again I’m not a mom so who knows how I’ll feel in the future) but I do have a major issue with it when it’s used as a shoddy replacement for meaningful storytelling.

Visually, Splinter’s death was visceral, but for me there was a complete emotional disconnect. Not only did show’s over-the-top foreshadowing and multiple fake-out deaths make me numb to Splinter’s ultimate demise, but the total lack of strong interpersonal moments for the Hamato family these last few seasons sapped the scene of almost all it’s emotional weight. I think that’s why it came across as so overtly “gratuitous"and violent, because there was just no other aspect of the death to latch onto.

Oh and I just love how the episode tries to make us care by throwing in one or two seconds of happy family interactions before shit hits the fan, as if they can make up for a whole season where it was noticeably absent. Little too late guys…

And then they try AGAIN as the turtles are grieving. Each of the brothers has these flashbacks of happy interactions they’ve had with their father and it’s supposed to be devastating. I SHOULD be crying, but all I can think is: “why do we only get new animation of Leo as a turtle tot with Splinter while all the other brothers’ memories are just re-used clips of earlier seasons?” and “jeez, they had to go all the way back to season 1 to find a meaningful scene between Mikey and Splinter?!”

But kudos to this show’s amazing voice actors and animators. They all tried their hardest to make this episode work and I commend them for it! Especially Josh Peck and whoever animated Casey because WOW!

Now the action in this show is amazing. It always has been, and I don’t think you need to sacrifice good storytelling for intense visuals. Just look at shows like Avatar, Legend of Korra, Voltron, and Teen Titans. Having top notch action in a show shouldn’t negate the need for meaningful plotlines. You can totally do both.

Sorry I’m rambling. I guess this is all to say I do agree with you. I hate that this show’s come to rely on “dark, edgy” shock value to illicit an emotional response from it’s viewers. But I would argue that the blame doesn’t lay solely in the action or visuals so much as the writing and pacing.

I think with some hard work and attention to character arcs this show could pair good storylines with just as many action-packed visuals. Unfortunately the execs and writing staff of this show seem to think there’s no need to put in the effort because hey, the show sells the toys and they threw in enough references to the 80s cartoon. -___-

ONE SECOND DOWN! 22 to go! :D

Yay, I’ve started the process of my first animation yester… this morning! It’s going to be fast and choppy because I don’t know what I’m doing, but I plan on having fun (I am already)!
