Whoever’s in charge of merchandise for Jojo, thank you. I can’t stop laughing at how ridiculous these are and they’re up for preorder right now at amiami AT A DISCOUNTED PRICE OF 750 JPY EACH. That’s like $7 each instead of the $10 they were originally. They ship in August.
*praying* please god don’t let the yuri!!! on ice fandom be taken over by homo fetishizing yaoi fujoshits that hate on any potential female love interests or female characters in general and take clear fan service seriously and think ignoring the plot for a ship is fine
if i hear “all those dumb fujoshit soremiku fans care about is their ship and ignore everything else in zestiria (with a Subtle ~especially the women because they are probably misogynistic tossed in there)” one more goddamn time, i stg. esp with the anime, because i’ve been hearing it a lot and i am sort of at the end of my rope here
do i need to bust out receipts, do i need to offer proof of every time i have said “i love alisha/rose/lailah/edna” to like, Prove that i do indeed care about other things. but am i allowed to spend time gushing about a ship that 1. is totally harmless and 2. makes me happy when i am not a very happy person
do i need to bust out the goddamn zestiria lore to prove that i care about the whole cast/canon AND HONESTLY even if i didn’t care are people, like, obligated to????
you know who i see shitting on alisha and rose more than anyone else? neckbeard waifu dudebros who pit them against each other. i’ve never once seen a soremiku person in my personal circle of tales friends say anything negative about any of zestiria’s female characters
it’s honestly ridiculous and it is honestly unfair. let people enjoy their damn ship, let people be happy that their m/m ship is canon, nobody has ever said it’s the pinnacle of representation but in a series of jrpgs where almost every game focuses on The Hets it *is* good to have. can’t we just like, be happy. maybe. just let us Fujoshits (because everyone always has to blame women for not doing fandom the “right” way or whatever) enjoy our pure ship in peace, i am p sure we are not hurting anyone
Me: YOI is a fetishized, overly eroticized representation of MLM relationships marketed towards the straight girl audience just like every other fujoshit anime, and the fact that the relationship is canon and “in your face” doesn’t change that
Some fujoshit: “um the show ISNT q***r baiting because they’re ACTUALLY in a relationship? Have you even watched the show?”
Me: who said anything about queerbaiting…
