Hey, how does watching jjba work? Is there more than one anime for it or do you read the manga first? I just want to get into it but idk how to start lol
No problem, anon! I’m new to it as well and it took me a while to figure out bc it can be a bit confusing gfhjdkf
Basically there are 8 parts/story arcs in total, 4 of which have been animated. Some people prefer to read the manga first but I think the general consensus is to watch the 4 parts of the anime and then read the other parts (that’s what I’m doing anyway! Plus I find the anime incredibly enjoyable so far even though apparently it does cut out some scenes from the manga?)
I’m basically watching it all on gogoanime but kissanime.ru works too. SO, some links:
end of anime stuff so far. Now to the manga. If you want to read coloured scans, I was recommended this site but if you’re like me and you’re too lazy to download the files, you can use kissmanga or bato.to instead. Just keep in mind that kissmanga has a lot of ads and is missing part 7 while bato.to has all the parts plus they’re coloured. You do need to make an account for it but it’s free.
don't you think it's a bit of an oxymoron? emphasizing that they will keep doing what they're doing even though they're not? they are rebranding and trying to be more appealing, the english acronym is definitely a response to their western popularity, i think both those statements can't be true at the same time
the two aren’t contradicting at all haha. by “keep doing what they have been doing”, they mean they’ll keep making music, keep telling the real stories of themselves to speak up about social issues, deliver messages about hope and motivation through their music, with the goal of inspiring other people, specifically the youth like them. i can say this is their ultimate goal. by inspiring other people to improve themselves, bts is showing their own development as musicians and human beings as well. now, the rebranding, the english name meaning change, they are extra steps that bts took to reach closer to their ultimate goal.
on a business aspect, a rebranding is needed when the old one is no longer capable of reflecting the brand’s current situation, lack the capability of fully expressing the brand’s motives and perspectives, or isn’t potential for future growth. i have explained why bts’ old logo is not suitable anymore in the previous post, but basically the old logo can only reflect half of bts’ ultimate goal aka. “speak up about social issues”. it doesn’t show the side of continuing to move forward and deliver hope and motivation to inspire other people. that’s why a rebrand is needed.
the english acronym is a response to their western achievement, but it’s a long-dued one since “bts” has never really had any english explanation other than being the acronym for “bang tan sonyeondan” in korean, and now it finally has a true meaning. there are various ways to interpret “beyond the scene”, but i’ll just talk about my own interpretation.
1) beyond the scene = beyond the k-pop scene. you all know the famous “this k-pop category ain’t big enough for me” line in agust d right? ;; with bts’ current success, they no longer think of the korean market only, they are trying to aim to the whole world, to produce better music and make more people be able to relate to their music, their stories more. this is also a hint to their ultimate goal mentioned above.
2) beyond the scene = beyond the screen. i don’t know how to phrase my thoughts on this but a scene, as in a movie scene, a play scene, is something that can only be enjoyed and doesn’t have much affect on the real world. it stays in the scope of the movie or play. going beyond the scene means that bts no longer just simply rap and sing, they’re going for something more than just mere performances, more than what you watch to entertain. they’re setting the goal of going beyond those to make actual influence to the real world, to other people’s lives.
those two statements can be true at the same time. bts’ motives stay the same, but their methods are developing and their goals, their playground are growing bigger.
The dazzling shine of the car is what first catches your attention, but it’s your curiosity that draws you to it. You feel almost compelled to approach the silent, sleek sports car that rests along the side of the steet, illuminated by the nearby streetlights. You’re certain that you’ve never seen this car before, and that puzzles you to no end. You live on this street, after all, and to your knowledge none of your neighbors had gotten a new car. You didn’t recognize it from anywhere else in town either, and with how small a place Jasper is, you’re sure you’d remember a car as nice as this one if you had ever seen it around.
So after thinking about it for a
really, really long time and doing some detailed research and also getting help
from people who know what they are talking about, I’m like…. 99,9 % sure that
I’m at least ace, perhaps even ace / aro. Not sure about the last one, but
since romance never interested me at all, personally even made me uncomfortable
when it was aimed at me, I think aro applies, too.
Sure, I guess that there is always
this super tiny possibility that I
just haven’t found the right person yet, though I highly doubt it. I will also
never know what happens in few years, how I will think about it then. Heck, I
don’t even know what will happen tomorrow,
let’s be honest here.
But since everything I’ve seen about
being ace and aro really feels as if someone was talking about me, and for the first time I feel like
I’m not a weirdo for feeling like this, I will go with this label for now. I
feel super relaxed and comfortable with thinking of myself as ace, as if a
piece has fallen into place for me that I haven’t even known about before. And
that feels so good, I can’t even explain. =D
Thanks to the people helping me out
with their own experiences – you know who you are guys, and I’m so grateful to
you right now. Biggest hug for you. <3
fun fact about how i cope: when someone asks how i’m doing, a strange phenomenon occurs, without fail, each and every time–i’m incapable of replying with pleasantries. even if i don’t trust you. even if you’ve hurt me in the past. even if i can’t even make sense of what exactly is happening…especially if i can’t make sense of what’s happening. you’re going to hear exactly what i can understand, some mixed up mumble about trauma and healing and how “i’ll be fine, i just need some time.” if you’re lucky you’ll get some tears, a real show stopper reserved for only the most vulnerable of moments.
but i love this about myself. i love that i have to explain this to others looking for a light exchange. i love that i feel everything to the highest degree, because feeling it all…rationalizing it all…moving on from it all…it gives me the richest life. the most genuine, heart-wrenching relationships. the most confusing nights and sleepiest of mornings, maybe six glasses of wine too much and a bad decision made only partly on-purpose.
i take my open heart and wear it proudly, even when it only hurts to do so. i’m not ashamed of what enables me to exist, to connect, to love..i love myself and my erratic emotions.
i hope you love what makes you feel unlovable too.
