the way that mason jars for cups has become a popular aesthetic for upper-middle class/upper class people bothers me a lot bc like, using mason jars as glasses originally was a thing that poor people did, especially so in rural/southern areas, because they literally couldn’t afford to own actual glasses but they always had mason jars to preserve food in, like this really bothers my dad too and we’ve talked about it and he’s told me before that when he was a kid and they were on welfare my grandma always grocery shopped to buy things that could last forever, always bought in bulk when they had the money to do so, and always stored stuff in mason jars as well as drank from them, and it was a Poor People Thing. like, other kids he went to school with didn’t do that. he was like genuinely ashamed and embarrassed of the fact that he drank out of mason jars and idk it just?? bothers me a fucking lot that this very real symbol of oppression has become some hip cute aesthetic for wealthy families to have
What will bother me the most is that Kubo obviously planned on having some sort of interaction between Toshiro and Momo. It was foreshadowed when they saw each other again! But it never happened. I feel so baited. That was the only reason I decided to pick up the series again. It was as if Kubo wanted fans to look forward to something that was never going to happen. There are so many characters that deserved getting closure in the story that it hurts just thinking about it.
