1. What if new guy’s actually a setter? What if he’s really really good? What if Kageyama gets the chance to work with him and learn a lot from him and improve his tosses a bunch and??
2. But what if new guy’s Hinata 2.0 instead? What if he’s actually a wing spiker? What if he’s, on top of being smol, also really insanely fast and jumps high? What if Kageyama’s put in a combo with him? What if he can give him the King’s Toss and it totally works out?? WHAT IF!!
Am I allowed to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed EVERY SEASON of Ninjago, even if I’ve come to terms with the “irrelevence” and “mistakes” that the fandom has pointed out?
I’ve been watching this show with my younger LEGO-loving siblings and cousins since before it even came out in 2011.
Maybe it’s just me, but you gotta realize that there are REASONS a lot of the “irrelevences” are in this show. This show. It’s based off of a line of LEGOS, for goodness sakes. There is no other reason why the show’s themes follow under action and good ol’ good vs. evil. It’s all in the spirit of adventuring and defeating the bad guys that LEGO is mostly all about.
NO, season 6 wasn’t just all about getting Jay and Nya getting back together. Holy cow, why would it be?! Season 5 isn’t just about Cole and Lloyd suffering for no apparent reason. Season 4 isn’t about getting Zane back just to have him back. And season 3 isn’t just about Pixane, which I am totally in love with.
It’s about Ninjago being resolved, like it always is. I honestly adore season 6 and all the other seasons for different reasons.
But they all have something in common. Every season, no matter how it progresses, makes it prominent who the good guys and bad guys are, along with wise mentors and strong morals about faith, teamwork, and keep a sharp mind and perspective. Honestly, you don’t get that out of a lot of other cartoons these days.
And that’s why I love all the seasons, even if, yeah, there are some fluffy parts (love triangles, anyone? :3). As a whole, the show’s morals never stray from its “doing-what’s right-and-always-improving” standards. It’s not about the theme (ghosts, pirates, etc). It’s about the lessons learned. Because ninja are disciplined and LEGO has proven that since 2011.
(Disagree with me if you want, ha ha. XD I respect your opinions too!)
Jak and I are away for a week in Thailand tomorrow morning! Sun and massages and delicious drinks and spa pool with a view of the ocean. Awwwww yeah!
In the mean time, I went through the sketch requests (remember I said I would do 5 of them as my sketchavembers while I was away?) and with Jak’s help chose the top 5 that would be fun for me to draw/something new for me to do.
Those 5 will be:
* EDI - requested by kay-ski * Nina from ‘Breath of Fire 3’ with some doves - requested by cat-star4 * Roxas from 'Kingdom Hearts 2’ (as a shout out to the old days) - requested by missangeleve * Yosuke in Skyloft Academy clothes (stop tempting me with those crossovers! XD) - requested by incendiarism
* Stocking from 'Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt’ - requested by ei8htbithero
Thanks SO MUCH for all the requests. I may open up for some suggestions towards the end of sketchavember but for now, I am going to finish packing and look forward to the Thai trip! See you all in a week! <3
It’s amazing! You should all go see it. If you can make a version that’s 3D with the 48 frames per second, it’s worth a watch! Takes a bit to get used to but really is a new experience (though it won’t be for all movie goers).
