The Rant So Ranty It Needed Its Own Post
I’m working on the Act 20 summary right now. I typed all this out, and then looked at my post and realized it was turning into less funny summary and more actual pissed off rant.
USUALLY A GOOD SIGN THAT IT NEEDS ITS OWN POST SO HERE YOU GO
To save time I’m just going to cut and paste, so you may find the start a little jarring, but just roll with it.
Anyway, I ignore all this and encourage you to do the same. BUT WAIT ENDYMION STILL HAS SEVERAL HUNDRED PAGES OF SHIT TO TELL US. He goes on to say – and I’m going to include the image here because I’m about to go off on it:
The people of Earth have lived together harmoniously until now, living and prospering under the Silver Crystal. I’M NOT SURE WHY THAT’S SUPPOSED TO BE MORE COMFORTING THAN TERRIFYING BUT FINE.
“Now let me tell you about Nemesis,” Endymion drones. Minako examines her notes. Dicks cover every inch of the paper. She turns to a fresh page.
They’ve only “recently” were able to verify its existence, and one of the key details Endymion notes about it is that “the planet was emitting a large amount of negative energy.” Now you might think any reasonable, advanced utopian society might dedicate their near-infinite lives to study and research, to learning and understanding. A new planet! Weird energy! Potentially dangerous, but what a fantastic opportunity! Right?
HELL NO LET’S AUSTRALIA UP THIS MOTHERFUCKER
ALSO – RECORD SCRATCH – WHAT WAS THAT YOU JUST SAID YOU LAVENDER BASTARD
“For the last few centuries, the planet Nemesis has been being used as a penal colony for those who would have otherwise received the death penalty for their crimes.”
WHAT ABOUT YOUR FUCKING “PEOPLE OF EARTH LIVING TOGETHER HARMONIOUSLY UNTIL NOW” PROPAGANDA BULLSHIT COMRADE
CLEARLY THAT’S NOT THE FUCKING CASE BUT LET ME TAKE THIS SHIT FURTHER FOR YOU
Because as the GODDAMN RULING MONARCHES FOR A THOUSAND YEARS, guess who makes the laws? Guess who makes the penalty for those laws?
YOU ASSHOLES ARE THE ONES THAT NOT ONLY DECLARED SOMETHING A CRIME BUT DECLARED THE PUNISHMENT FOR IT WAS DEATH
THEN HAD ENOUGH PEOPLE COMMITTING THAT CRIME THAT YOU NEEDED A GODDAMN PLANET-SIZED PENAL COLONY FOR THEM ALL
And when maybe someone stopped and said “Well, you know, perhaps this isn’t the best idea” – AFTER WHAT YOU YOURSELF ADMIT WERE CENTURIES OF THIS PRACTICE – you just “forget” about it. All these people you condemned to a planet whose only definite characteristic was that it omitted so much negative energy it was flashing a neon “EXIT HERE FOR EVIL” sign, and after hundreds and hundreds of years of dumping untold quantities of people there for a crime YOU GUYS ALONE decided WAS a crime warranting this punishment, you “forgot” about it.
I CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO EXPRESS THE LEVELS OF WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK I HAVE WITHIN ME RIGHT NOW
YOU KNOW WHAT I’D FUCKING REBEL AGAINST YOU ASSHOLES TOO
So I guess thanks for making me so pissed at the characters I love with all my heart that on hearing the backstory and motivation from THEIR PERSPECTIVE, I’m like “Yeah, you know? Good on the Black Moon!“
I AM CHOOSING TEAM DEMANDE OVER TEAM USAGI YOU GUYS
Jesus fucking wept, this is so ill-thought and poorly considered. I hate the manga so much.
