also how did one get 10 comments

Yuri on Ice 2017/02/11 all night event report

I’m back from the event and I’ll write a report before going to sleep, mostly because I’m sure I will not be able to decipher my scribbles when I wake up… It’s not the full talk show since you can’t record it and also I couldn’t possibly write down everything, but I tried to take note of most things, especially stuff that has never been mentioned elsewhere. In the end it became quite long so I guess I was able to get most of the stuff down…

Needless to say it’s my notes, so other people might write about parts I omitted, etc. To be honest quite a few of the things they said especially in the beginning, like what the seiyuu think about their characters, is something I’ve read so many times in interviews that I could almost answer in their place, lol… I was a bit disappointed that one of the questions that was answered is the one about Chris’ mysterious acquaintance, because actually Kubo answered that in Pash already (it’s in the Q&A part I’ll be translating later), and I hoped they would feature questions about stuff that hasn’t been explained yet. Well I guess not everybody reads interviews, but still…

Due to the format of the report you can find my comments here and there, mostly in brackets.
Under the cut because it’s long.

I forgot to mention something important: the ones participating in the talk show were Mitsurou Kubo, Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Yuuri), Junichi Suwabe (Victor), Kouki Uchiyama (Yurio).

10 Wild Star Wars Theories (filled with spoilers)

In case you missed the title, this is filled with spoilers about Star Wars Episode VII. Thanks to those who discussed some of these with me.

1. Rey is not a Skywalker.

It is what most people expect, but I think it is too easy. (Kind of like how many thought Luke would be Kylo Ren…but he wasn’t.) I think Abrams has more depth planned. See below.

2. Ben Solo killed Rey’s father as part of becoming Kylo Ren.

Which leads into number 3…

3. Luke is standing next to Rey’s father’s grave at the end of Episode VII.

This is how I imagine it played out. As Luke was training his next generation of Jedi, he came across a man with significant gifts who was already married and had a daughter (named Rey). Luke agrees to train the man, so long as he leaves behind the family. (Jedi cannot get attached, you know.) 

Rey’s dad leaves her with her mother and heads off to train, becoming friends with Ben Solo along the way. Ben’s draw to the dark side leads him to kill Rey’s mother. Rey’s dad then flies off with Rey to Jakku to ensure her safety and anonymity. Rey’s dad confronts Kylo Ren and loses. 

Luke rescues Rey’s dad’s body and brings it with him into hiding, burying him with dignity. Sensing that Rey is coming, Luke hikes to her dad’s grave to pay his respects and tell her the story when she arrives. 

4. Finn’s backstory is insignificant.

I’ve heard a few people trying to connect Finn to Mace Windu or Lando Calrissian. Yeah. No. Jedi are known for not having attachment…so they generally don’t have kids, which means the Jedi that arise and are prevalent in Episodes I-III are born with the gift/midichlorians. Finn was taken from a random family. We will never see them. Forget it. Bigger mysteries to unravel.

5. Poe Dameron is Rey’s uncle.

Poe and Rey never appear on screen together during Episode VII. However, Rey does hear Poe’s name without reaction. It could be Rey does not know her own last name, but it’s more likely she doesn’t know her mother’s maiden name. My guess is that Poe is the younger brother of Rey’s mother. 

6. Supreme Leader Snoke is Darth Plagueis.

I’m not the only one to think this, but allow me to present my reasoning.

In Episode III, Darth Sidious explains the Sith Tragedy of Darth Plagueis. Plagueis knew how to stop people from dying and create life with midichlorians. Some have guessed it is Darth Plagueis who created/fathered Anakin from the midichlorians. Remember how Shmi Skywalker says there was no father.

Sidious tells Anakin that Plagueis taught his apprentice everything he knew, then the apprentice killed the master. Sidious remarks, “Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.”

Such a remark echoes a biblical quotation: “So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked [Jesus], saying, ‘He saved others; he cannot save himself’” (Matthew 27:41-42a, ESV).    

Anakin is more like Jesus in the virgin birth category, but it makes sense that a Sith Lord who can create life with midichlorians could also resurrect life with midichlorians.

7. Darth Plagueis killed Padme.

I recently saw a post speculating that Darth Sidious had killed Padme with the force. It was a compelling argument. The droids attending to Padme as she gave birth could not detect why she was dying. Droids cannot detect the force, so that makes sense. Sidious also has a sinister grin after he tells Darth Vader about the death and Vader yells in pain and hatred.

I know Darth Sidious is a liar and he could very well be lying to Vader, but what if Sidious actually thought Vader did kill Padme with his hate (as he says). Perhaps Sidious could detect the force in the killing, perhaps not. If he could, he probably attributed it to Vader. If he could not, he probably thought it was a childbirth death, such things happen, even in a galaxy far, far away.

But what if it wasn’t Sidious, and it wasn’t Vader. What other being could do such a thing? Only Darth Plagueis. Imagine him taking the life from Padme to resurrect his own. 

Also, think about the time frame of Padme’s death. Dozens, if not hundreds of Jedi had just been killed. With all that midichlorian-infused blood being spilled, what a perfect time for a master-midichlorian-manipulator to rise from the dead. 

8. The Knights of Ren are the younglings Kylo Ren didn’t kill.

Anakin Skywalker murdered dozens of children. Kylo Ren could have had opportunity to do the same in his turn to the dark side, but I imagine he did not go through with it. While the Sith always follow the rule of two - a master and an apprentice - it’s not clear if the First Order are following the rule of two. The lack of the “darth” title to Snoke and Kylo Ren leads me to believe this is the case. 

The younglings Kylo Ren refused to kill have become his followers: the Knights of Ren. This would explain part of his fear that he is not as powerful as Darth Vader, who was able to kill when he was not.

9.  Maz Kanata is a time traveler.

We don’t seem to know who anybody is in Star Wars VII. Rey, Finn, Poe, Snoke, Lor San Tekka, and Maz all have backstories we can’t figure out. But there is one person’s backstory I know: J.J. Abrams. Guess what? He’s a sucker for time travel. Who better to be a time traveler among this group than 1000 year old Maz. Which leads me to number 10: 

10. Maz Kanata is Leia Organa.

They have a few things in common. Most importantly, they both know the force, but are not Jedi. 

One of the questions about Maz is: “How did she get Luke’s lightsaber?” Remember when Luke lost that lightsaber? It was when Vader chopped his hand off in Episode V. Who was on board the ship that picked Luke up right after that? Leia Organa. 

Maz also makes a comment about people’s eyes, saying different people have the same eyes. 

I might be beyond crazy, but I see a similarity. Not only that, but the outfit looks a bit like what General Organa wears in Episode VII. 

So there you have it, few random theories to ponder. I’ll be happy if one of them is correct. What do you think?

every ryumako moment in kill la kill ever

This took me five fucking hours to do omfg

basically, I rewatched the whole anime and documented every single interaction between Mako and Ryuko that seemed noteworthy. Not all of them can be considered romantic, but a lot of them are very important to us ryumako shippers. So yeah, here’s a 3,000 word 8 page piece of crap proving that im a total nerd

I will go down with this ship
