This is my second year film here at CalArts. I was super lucky to have amazing original music and sound design by Paul Michael Cardon https://soundcloud.com/theotter, narration from the talented Nick D’Agostino, some absolutely beautiful set pieces fabricated by Ming-Huei Huang, and phenomenal props fabricated by my friends @birdbears and @kesiahmanival. Not to mention some much needed help 2D coloring from the great and wise Bryan Lee @tagawee.
Go ahead and click that little HD button at the bottom right and select 4K to watch it in extra crispy clear, beautiful high definition! Enjoy the show!!
what she means:
it's 2016 and I can't believe that the 'man in a dress' trope in comedy sketches and films is still a thing. It's sexist because it caricatures women, and hella transphobic because it turns transwomen and their gender expression into a punchline, and we're supposed to laugh at it? why is this a joke? why is this a source of humour?
Antis: “Gruvia is 99% comedy. Their relationship is a joke.”
I’m pretty sure this is way more than 1% of their relationship, and if you didn’t notice NONE of these panels are comedic or meant to be taken that way. NONE of these panels show Juvia being a “stalker” or Gray being “bothered” by her. None. They show growth, progression, and development. From cute moments, to natural, to serious ones. And there is still plenty more to come. The pairing started at rock bottom, but then bloomed into something beautiful: two people that share mutual romantic feelings. Anyone with half a brain can see Mashima is not glorifying something “unhealthy” in his manga. And if you can’t see it, then congrats, you failed to understand a manga aimed at 12 year olds.
The problem with anti Gruvia is they take the comedy way too seriously (that’s not meant to) and disregard the meaningful moments like they are insignificant. They think comedy outweighs the serious stuff and make up excuses, which is hilarious. Like have you ever read a manga before?
