does this count as spoiler

every time a new character is introduced in haikyuu, i lose a year off my life

also, I just can’t imagine sakusa in normal clothes? he probably always needs jacket pockets so he doesn’t have his hands exposed to bacteria

Here is a question I have. See, we never see Victor’s final pose for his Free Skate, Stammi Vicino. Since Yuri does a perfect copy, we know what it looks like, but not what Victor’s expression was. It’s a very lonely kind of ending pose, arms wrapped around himself, looking beseechingly up into the sky. Lots of people have talked about how the Aria is all about that cripplingly lack of love.

(Whoever drew Yuri in this frame, ten thumbs up, the right hand behind his back, his smile, ;u;)

My follow-up questions is: what did the ending of the pair skate look like??? The routine has obviously changed a lot as Victor and Yuri skate together and the Duet is also shorter! The song is almost twice the length of the animated sequence (a whole ‘nother minute), although the animated sequence does end at the melodic climax. It has very delicate ending unlike the super intense Aria high note. The combination spin and big finish pose that was in the Aria seems totally unsuitable for the duet!

Maybe we’ll find out when we get those choreography videos in the DVDs?? I’m simply dying of curiosity, haha! 

anonymous asked:

want to talk more about ritsu? like what's your take on him? like how do you think he views his brother and Reigen ?

i’ve already answered half of that third question, and you can see more stuff i wrote about ritsu and mob here… and i have a new idea about the brothers that i think i’ll make a separate post about… 

but i’ve got some headcanons i can put here

  • if the kageyama brothers play instruments (and you can’t get through middle school without doing so, right? at least a little) (not counting recorders), mob plays piano and ritsu plays violin. 
    • mob plays piano because it suits him. a piano is easy to operate (press a button and it makes a sound; press the button harder and it’s louder) but has great potential for complexity. the way it makes sound is pretty simple (whack a string), but the internal structure is intricate, almost convoluted. the sounds of a piano are generally smooth and neutral-to-pleasant, but they can get very intense.
    • ritsu plays violin because it suits him. playing a violin isn’t easy for a beginner, and it doesn’t get any easier. ritsu is an overachiever and thus, i believe, would be Real Good at violin. the sounds of a violin can sound much more dramatic than a piano, with a piercing quality and a potential to convey really gut-wrenching emotion… but it can’t have the same booming resonance as a piano.
  • ritsu is a good learner but not a very good teacher; he gets a knack for things and then can’t quite put it into words
  • ritsu doesn’t know how to make a cootie catcher and would look upon one with nervous incredulity
  • ritsu colors inside the lines
  • ritsu plays super smash brothers as link. when he plays against his brother, he gives mob the advantage by playing as a character he doesn’t usually use, but he doesn’t mention it
  • ritsu is well-liked and popular but does not have any close friends at his school (except maybe kamuro and maaaybe tokugawa, but they’re not, like, confidant-level close).
  • ritsu doesn’t carry a comb or hairbrush, not even in his school bag. if his hair gets disheveled, he give his head one good shake and it goes back to normal
  • ritsu sometimes feels a little guilty about being taller than his big brother
  • ritsu still sorta wishes mob would kick his ass for pulling that “good old brothers act is over” stunt, but he knows it’s not gonna happen. but it would make him feel a little better
