Can I just talk about Toby from Trollhunters for a moment here?
I just finished binge watching the entire show in about 2 days with my friend. While we both latched onto a certain changeling immediately, I found myself looking at Toby more and more as the series went on - especially towards the end. Now he’s my favorite character.
This kid’s been through hell and still has a pep that my friend found “annoying”, but I found him to be endearing and honestly relatable more than the others.
This boy lost his parents (presumably they’re dead) and lives with his blind grandmother, his only real friend becomes a chosen one and he sticks by him and constantly puts his life at risk to help, he bounces back fairly quickly one he realizes that Claire isn’t a threat to his friendship instead of remaining bitter - and then the kid goes and loses his newest friend not too long after forming a close bond with them.
Obviously, it’s got a heavy Superman influence, because Superman is awesome.
Anyways, I took it upon myself to write a silly little drabble inspired by a scene from Superman: The Animated Series. It’s probably my favorite Superman moment, and for some reason, I feel it perfectly fit Judy and Nick’s interactions.
It’s not fancy by any means, but hell, it was fun to write, and what’s wrong with that?
character in general: Nekomaru Nidai is probably my favorite male character in the entire series. I love the SHSL Lightning Rod. He’s the freaking SWEETEST BALL OF STRENGTH AND I LOVE HIM AND I CHERISH HIM AND THE GAME TOOK HIM AWAY FROM ME ANND I HAD TO STOP FOR LIKE FIVE MINUTES AND JUST STARE BEFORE I CRIED FOR A LONG TIME I love that man [and that machine]. how they play them: GOD I love your Nekomaru. Been mostly stalking from afar but I just- think you write him perfectly??? the mun: We haven’t talked a whole lot so! No opinion but ‘m sure you’re awesome I mean-
follow them: Yes! rp with them: I would like to but no :P want to rp with them: Absolutely! ship their character with mine: We’ll see I guess?
what is my;
**Note: Mun’s answer are all to be completely honest. Don’t send url if you don’t want brutal honesty.
Arima and Haise’s relationship is probably one of my favorites now this entire series.
Did you see chapter 85? I’m glad Arima died with a closure. It was so beautifully written. The Hakushuu poem, the checkerboard sky (disgusting clouds), the bed of shiran flowers… seeing it all come back. This is indeed Tokyo Ghoul: re
A :reincarnation; A :restart; A :remake. Not to forget that it changes so much from what we know of the original TG series.
Playable characters from The King of Fighters ‘99: Match of the Milennium. Apparently SNK is among those companies who thought the last year of the milennium was 1999 instead of 2000. An easy mistake to make. Perhaps they thought this truly would be the match of the milennium since the world was going to end in fiery rain of malfunctioning computers on January 1, 2000 anyway. They even call this the “Fifth Episode” in the intro even though it’s the sixth game in the series. (There may be some sort of in-continuity reason for this oddity, and I have no doubt someone will point it out to me.)
This is one of my least favorite entries in the series, and it’s entirely for aesthetic reasons. I’ll grant that the selectable roster continues to blow away the offerings from Capcom, and the game probably plays fine (I haven’t spent enough time with it to know all the nuanced changes apart from a fourth-character jump-in striker system similar to what we see in Marvel vs. Capcom), but I don’t care for the design and graphics of the characters. The portrait-style appearances have a sharper, grittier look than the games before or after them, which feels like it might have been inspired by those in Street Fighter Alpha 3. I prefer the more colorful, gradiated images from other entries in the series.
The sprites feel… Odd in-game as well. It may have been my imagination, but they don’t seem to move as smoothly as I expected. Some of them, even in their idle animations, look like frames have been chopped, and some of them just felt off to me. When this very franchise offers so many other games you could choose from, this was enough to make a big difference to me, and when I feel the need to get my KOF fix on, I’ll probably continue to stick with 2000 and ‘98.
