fighting horses

  • MC: OMG A FIGHT!
  • Kenshin: *pushing his way through the crowd with his sword already unsheathed* My time has come.

I’d like to believe that the reason that the Amazons have the most EXTRA fighting style in existence is because they’re a warrior people with no war to fight so instead of just doing basic training like normal people, Antiope is like, “And now I’m going to teach you how to BACKFLIP off of a MOVING HORSE,” because they have to fill their time somehow. 

On the topic of betta fish:

Hi, I live in Thailand (once called “Siam”).

It seems like there is a big, popular understanding about where you’ll find wild “Siamese fighting fish” aka “betta fish” in Thailand.

Apparently, the common North American (and European?) idea is that you’ll find beta fish in places like this:

I can understand this misconception, especially if you’ve never experienced what our monsoon seasons are like, nor have ever seen a rice field before… among many other things.
The fact is, you’ll never see betta fish in such tiny bodies of water. I have seen tadpoles in small puddles like these… and, in shallow gutters/”khlongs”, I have even found little guppies and fresh water crabs. But try as I might (and I have really tried), I have not once found a single betta fish in these kinds of environments.

Betta fish naturally occur in these kinds of environments:

Yes, the water can be shallow (knee-deep), but the territory is often wide, vast, and dense with soft, vertical growing foliage. The water is not stagnant like in a puddle, nor is it barren with wide open space. In this environment, a wild betta fish has many hiding opportunities.

I can only assume that betta fish do not naturally occur in small puddles (be it in the jungle or otherwise), or within Khlongs/gutters–because it is not an optimal environment for them and they cannot survive it. 
Please note that I do not, nor have ever raised betta fish. I have only looked to admire them in the wild and these are my observations. 


As someone who raises a variety of wild/’exotic’ animals, I have found it critical to the animals health and behavior–to recreate their natural environment as closely as possible, while omitting natural dangers from the set-up. 
Doing so will allow your animal to exhibit its full range of natural behaviors, and exist optimally. For you, this means being able to watch your animal preform behaviors and show off colors you might never have had the chance to see, otherwise.
I my opinion, this is much more rewarding than spending time, energy, and emotions into trying to defend a tiny, barren, and stagnant fishbowl set up.

The Batboys as Disney Princes

FIRE EMBLEM WARRIORS NEWS

Units will mostly be from Mystery of the Emblem, Awakening, and Fates.

Marth is voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa. Chrom is voiced by Tomokazu Sugita.

There are two more original characters: Darios (voiced by Takuya Satou) and Yuana (voiced by Yuka Nagayoshi).

Development is currently 70 percent complete.

The project was in planning before Famitsu’s collaboration Musou title survey.

The first thing that was decided was “to do a Musou game that Fire Emblem fans would enjoy.”

The weapon triangle, high strategy elements, and classes that are mainstay in the Fire Emblem series are in.

The reason all the protagonists from the Fire Emblem games are not being included is because if they did that, everyone would be using a sword.

You can switch characters while playing, so you’ll be able to control various weapons and classes of characters.

The number of playable characters is more than the first entry of any other Musou series collaboration.

Archers and magic users will be playable.

While Koei Tecmo can’t share details on the world yet, there is a “Shield of Fire” in this world that has turned up from beyond space and time.

Units that ride a horse, such as the Cavalier, always fight on horse. They’re designed to have high mobility.

“Bond Conversations” are being prepared as support conversations. There is a huge amount of text, including serious conversations and goofy conversations.
