Ok no, you know what? I AM pissed right now. I had a very dear friend of mine literally break down crying in my arms when I told her that asexuality exists and that she might be asexual like me and that she was not broken or the only person on this planet who didn’t feel any sexual attraction to anybody. I used to have another friend who was told by her family that she was useless for her husband and that there was something wrong with her because she did not feel sexual attraction. She went through several relationships involving sexual actions that she did not want but went through anyway because she thought she had to. When she told me that she actually never felt sexually attracted to anyone she had basically already resigned to being a weirdo, being abnormal, being less than. I used to hate myself. I still struggle with that but I really used to hate myself because I couldn’t get myself to feel the same things that other people seemed to feel. When I realised asexuality was a thing and that that thing might be something that actually described me and my situation and how I felt, I was so relieved - mostly because I had thought I was alone and then suddenly there were all these people who felt the same thing, who had the same experiences. For the first time since puberty started basically I did not feel awkward and weird and somehow less than everyone around me. I felt like a whole person. I felt complete. So how DARE you say that asexuals are “basically straight”, “just identifying as ace to avoid straight privilege”?! How DARE you mock that moment of relief that so many people on the ace spectrum experience when they realise that they are not alone, that they are not the only ones feeling like this, that they do have a community and support and people they can talk to about their experiences?! Shame on you!
As many of us already know (and it has already been confirmed) the next AU we will see in Underverse is Underswap. What do you expect to happen in 0.3?
I know I’m a few days late, but I couldn’t get this idea out of my head and I had to make this. My guess is that Cross’ll use Papyrus against Sans. And since Underswap Paps uses orange magic (I think that’s canon?) and you have to keep moving to avoid damage, I just fell in love with the though of poor Sans having to run for his life…waiting for a chance to attack ;)
Suzuki, the Super Adult Level Rookie, is back to life. In a typical Japanese manner, the very first thing he does is apologize for all the worries he caused because of his sickness. Today he is introducing the 4 Super High School Level students we have left.
Super High School Level Tennis Player: Ryouma Hoshi (seiyuu: Akio Ootsuka)
Hoshi is a hard-boiled dandy character. He has such a heavy history that the fact is still only a young boy becomes irrelevant. He is the most calm/composed character in the game. The thing he always has in his mouth is candy. I mean, you all can see that there’s no smoke coming out from it, right?.
Hoshi’s voice is the main force showing his hard-boiledness, so they chose Akio Ootsuka. It’s not an exaggeration to say that Hoshi’s success as a character was thanks to Ootsuka’s voice acting. Ootsuka liked Hoshi’s character so much that he would be wearing Hoshi’s trademark outstandingly cute horned woollen hat for his next official appearances in events.
Super High School Level Astronaut: Kaito Momota (seiyuu: Ryouhei Kimura)
Momota is like a reliable older brother. Thanks to his a lit bit clichéd hot-blooded spirit and to his document falsification, he was the first person to ever pass the Astronaut Exam before the age of 20. Because of that, the first impression he gives is something like “Is this guy really a high schooler?”. Momota is smart enough to pass the Astronaut Exam, so one of the more promising points of the game is showing how he will use this characteristic power of him.
The choice of Ryouhei Kimura as his voice actor was completely centered around Momota’s image as a reliable older brother. Ryouhei Kimura was the who most surprised Suzuki because he was the only one who asked for the script to be sent digitally to his tablet, instead of getting a printed script like everyone else. Apparently, the reason for that is because Kimura tends to “get addicted to his characters”, so the tablet makes it more convinient for him to keep reading his script 24/7.
Super High School Level Magician: Himiko Yumeno (seiyuu: Aimi Tanaka)
Yumeno is a very “small” girl. So “small” that she thinks the talent is actually Super High School Level Spellcaster. Her real talent are magic tricks good enough to earn the title of Magician of the Year. An award truly fitting of Super High School Level. Yumeno is by far the laziest girl of the game. This and her other character quirks combined give Yumeno a very unique cuteness when compared to the other characters.
Yumeno’s seiyuu is Aima Tanaka, nominated to the 2016′s “Best Female Debut-year Seiyuu” award. Yumeno’s very outdated way of speaking is one of the points that contribute to her aftermentioned cuteness.
(Note: I still haven’t read any translations to Yumeno’s introduction scene, so I can’t tell if it’s noticeable from that, but Yumeno speaks like a generic RPG wise old man mage, except female)
Super High School Level Artist: Angie Yonaga (seiyuu: Minori Suzuki)
Yonaga is a character that stands out. Suzuki consider that she is quirkiest character in the DanganRonpa series, a series where basically everyone is quirky. Her habit of making up her own words shows a little bit of the artistic side you would expect from the Super High School Level artist, but even put that aside, she has a lot of weird in her. Suzuki calls her “Strange-chan”.
Her seiyuu is Minori Suzuki, the newcomer that, like a shooting star, appeared out of nowhere in 2016 and suddenly everyone is wishing for her. The Super High School Level Rookie Suzuki says that fans should look forward to his fellow rookie Suzuki makes Yonaga feel like the super unique Strange-chan she is.
Now the character introductions are over. That was fun.
