Underfell monsters don’t usually follow human traditions! Chara was the first to bring up “Halloween” as something that should be celebrated! Asriel got dragged into it, too, and ended up wearing a costume too ;D
“They’re more than fiction. They were there for me even if they weren’t real. They were there when you weren’t. They’re more than you think they are.”
(Warning: This ended up being longer than I intended. Forgive me!)
Yugioh was one of the first anime shows I watched growing up. When I was little, I hated Kaiba. The villian is always the bad guy right? Such arrogance that matched a black heart. So why should I cheer for him? Why would anyone?
But you did Mokuba.
I wanted Yugi to win, like the main hero always does, and he did. Over and over again. But when you first came on that screen, I never knew how much a fictional character could have such an impact on my life. You didn’t get a big role. You were the little brother. Seto Kaiba’s little brother. A supporting character. No. Stop. You weren’t. You can’t be.
Because why did I learn so much from you than everyone else? Why did your actions speak so much louder to me than the main cast ever could?
Because you’re an inspiration.
I saw Kaiba and saw a cruel narcissistic cold-hearted person. Then you came out of nowhere, a sweetheart, a sinceregood little kid with a giant heart of pure gold and showed me something else.(Despite your manga and season 0 appearances)
I saw a black heart gone cold. You saw a broken one. And you tried your best to keep it from completely falling apart into nothing. You stood by him. You supported him when no one else would. Why? There’s more to people than what you see on the outside. You taught me that.
Then I heard about your family. I heard about your parents. The orphanage. The bullies. The pain. The suffering. The sadness. But still you smiled through it all. At your age, how did you continue to go on and live life dealing with what you did? Some of us still can’t even do it. I’m still struggling with it. Ignorance is bliss they say? No, don’t make me laugh.
You knew what was going on.
You cried on that swing, missing a father who may or may not have loved the son that took his wife away. You looked back at the relative that dropped you off in the orphanage and held on to your brother’s hand as you stared ahead into the faces of lost hope among the other orphans.When that monster walked into the orphanage, your face held worry. When he took you to your new “home”, you knew what was going on. That’s why you tried to reach out to your brother with those cards.
Even when you’re brother ignored you while you lived in that vast empty mansion under you’re “step-father”, you still loved him. Even when he tried to kill you- you…still stood by him. Promised to wait for him forever.
How do you forgive so easily?
Your flesh and blood hurt you. Neglected you. Abandoned you.
But still you love him anyway.
Forgiving someone is one of the hardest and seems like one of the most impossible things to do. You did it even before Yugi reached the elevator to go duel your brother didn’t you. How? You really are amazing you know that?
Because you didn’t see a monster, you saw someone hurt, broken and beaten down.
You wanted to help.
You always wanted to support him. You know why he does the things he does. You know that having a difficult life doesn’t excuse him.
After all, you lived that same life, walked down the same road, lost the same parents, shared the same past. Even though everyone forgets you were there too.
When everyone else abandoned your brother, you didn’t. When no one believed in him, you did. You were there for him. Like he was there for you. Through you I saw a different person in him.
Through you I learned what true unselfishness, devotion, kindness, and self-sacrificing is.
You went through a lot…
You’re mother died after giving birth to you. You never got a chance to meet her. Your father died after that. Your relatives stole and left you. Soon your brother left even if he was still in the same room as you with a different gaze and a different kind of “smile”. Your “new” father didn’t think you were worth a second glance and you were left alone in that house.
You didn’t have parents to love you. You were convinced your brother did, even if he didn’t show it the right way. After all, he tried but he was still a kid himself. Then he neglected you and you tried to get him back. No matter what. Even when he tried killing you at Death-T.
Those monsters appeared and you were just a kid-and the experience of death would have crippled you. Then you lost your brother to a coma. Then the kidnappings started. You had your soul taken away and abandoned to shadows in the darkness, alone. You were dangled from a helicopter. Brainwashed. Had your body taken over.
Kid I could go on.
But let me tell you something. You’re a soldier. A warrior. You were abused, abandoned, neglected, went through traumatic experiences, and the fact that you continue to smile is something that I cannot put into words or begin to even describe just how much volume that speaks.
People say showing emotions is a sign of weakness. But you see differently. They see a moment of weakness but you see a moment of strength. Or maybe you’re just that freaking strong.
Maybe, no one else can see the pain behind that smile. Even so, you keep trying. Because maybe one day, when you smile, your beloved big brother might really smile back at you.
My life was filled with abuse and depression hit me hard. Everytime I watched Yugioh, I felt like I was living through you guys. I saw you laugh and cry, just like I did. I forgot about my own pain when I saw you struggle with yours.
I loved watching you and your brother.
Smiled and loved the bond between you two. Your devotion to each other is admirable.
Growing up, I learned so much from you than my parents who weren’t around, it makes me a better person today.
You held my hand.
You helped me get through tough times. Thank you Mokie.
The original Yugioh series ended a long time ago and I’m in my senior year of high school. I still rewatch epsiodes.
Still love seeing Mokuba and Seto. Really miss them. So when I heard about the movie, I was so happy and excited. Especially when I heard the movie revolved around Kaiba.
Don’t get me wrong, I grew to love him because of Mokuba, but Mokuba will always be my favorite character.
So I was concerned when the brothers’ lockets were gone. Was concerned about rumors of Mokuba being dead. Then terrified and relieved when I saw Mokuba’s sketch in the cast for the new Yugioh movie.
But they chopped all his hair off.
I always loved it long, hope he kept it till adulthood. I hoped he was an adult! But unfortunately the movie is set 6 months after the original not 10 years.
I always imagined him to grow up as a badass vice president with flaring trench coats and be just as sexy as his big bro :) Maybe be like those cool spy agents haha.
So I was disappointed when I found out he wasn’t much older.
But I loved the suit! It almost proves my headcannon that Mokuba won’t abandon Kaiba Corp when he gets older, he’ll still want to work there.
But I can’t express the excitement I felt when I saw this.
I’m even more excited now to see this movie! I was worried they’d make him look bad with the new haircut but its actually not that bad.
It’s so much better than what I expected. Seeing him again, get older (even slightly) just brings back so much emotions I had to write this.
Even though it’s not exactly what I want or was hoping for- I don’t even care I just wanna see Mokuba again.
I’m just happy to see him again.
I wanna give behindtheplottwist the credit for the other pictures in the beginning, because it was originally his/her concept that I used for the Kaiba brothers pictures.
