Harry teasing that Magnus and Alec are being pissed off at each other, has got me all kinds of excited to be quite honest. Because you know what that means? Talking about it and making up.
I am yelling so hard. I cannot wait!!!
You can say what you want about “Shadowhunters” but their season finales are always really good. Like, they are satisfying on one hand because they wrap up most of the stuff that happened in said season so they don’t leave you hanging there with a cliffhanger in pain, desperately wanting to know what the fuck just happened. But they also give you an ending/cliffhanger(s) that leaves you wanting for more and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Yeah so here’s another collab between me and @anjus-fungus hahah usual thing her on inks me on colors. Goddammit I felt dumb making the embroidery on her clothes but fuck I did it.
Hahaha yeah Nier Automata and Steven Universe Crossover. Lapis as 2B get it? yeah ok thats terrible but who cares! Also this idea came about thanks to THIS, Yeah me and Anjus haven’t given up on this yet hahahah
Next up Peridork as 9S hahaha *headdesk* I’m gonna go quietly die now.
1) Regardless of the fact that Yoko Taro is a shameless pervert and that the camera can be manipulated by the player to get naughty shots, I do like that in Nier Automata, they didn’t overtly steer the camera (much) during cutscenes to get cheap shots.
With fanservice-y dressed characters, it’s quite easy to do that, focusing on boobs and crotches (i.e. Bayonetta), but they didn’t since it doesn’t fit the grim tone. Although I’m quite aware that the outfits are already toeing the line, haha.
2) Aversions of expectations and gender roles. 2B is the sexy, badass, stoic warrior who actually has a good reason to be so. 9S is the cheerful yet dude-in-distress who’s useful. A2 is also a sexy, badass, stoic warrior.
Those were the first impressions. Turns out 2B does have emotions, and she reveals them quite suddenly when 9S is in danger, and although it’s surprising that she does that when they’ve only met, it’s actually really good because her reactions are actually hints to her true nature and to the rest of the story.
9S is a cute, happy boy, who may grate on you initially, but he’s endearing. And he’s actually a racist, who disregards machines as conscientious despite numerous evidences. And he gets rescued a lot. But he really, really gets to you, especially in his latter character development in 3rd Act.
A2 is strange, because you only get to play her in the last act (and I’m hoping Taro makes a DLC featuring more of her to get more of her character), yet she still manages to win you over. She’s tough chick who went through hardships, but still goes on because she needs to.
There are other characters, but I can’t list them all but haha, they really stick to you, from pacifist Pascal to madwoman Jackass (that name really sticks out), they all work so well because none isn’t used for simple fodder.
In other words, Taro actually wrote them like real people, with complex relationships and complex thought processes while mixing and smashing tropes and stereotypes. You can’t really put any of them in one box as their definite characteristic, and that multi-faceted approach to both men and women is one of the things that makes this game awesome.
