I still haven’t checked all of Tumblr’s recent posts so maybe someone has translated it already, but this tweet by Mitsurou Kubo is just so beautiful I need to have it in my blog too.
“No matter what real people think about this anime, within its world no one is ever going to be discriminated against because of what they like. And that is something I will always protect.”
Further insight: Before she tweeted this she made another tweet where she said that they (the production staff) are not going to say whether the scene at the end of episode 7 is a kiss or not, and they leave it completely to the fans’ imagination. Out of curiosity I checked the comments to that tweet and she actually got backlash from some people accusing her to be vague on purpose “to keep the fanservice on the level of queerbaiting without confirming anything serious”. I think the comment above is partly her answer to the complaints too. Just because it’s not stated out loud, it does not mean that the show is just winking at fujoshi and being superficial. They are much more serious about discrimination issues than many seem to think.
I will just finally say that seriously, they can have all my money. I was so moved reading that tweet and I’m so thankful to all of the staff involved for creating such a wonderful anime. I never expected it to be so deep and so revolutionary compared to anything else in Japan. I hope they can get back the production costs and maybe we can even have a sequel too somewhere in the future.
(By the way, please buy the BDs/DVDs if you can afford and are even remotely interested in them, because that’s where the production team is getting most of their profit from)
i feel like someone else has already said stuff about this but i seriously hope that benjamin alire sáenz has a say in how the movie goes because ari and dante are his boys, he loves them so much and he cares about them and i just really hope he plays a big part in the making of the movie so that it can be something made with love and care.
Hey Rev! So I've been trying to improve my drawing skills for about a year now, but I've seen very little improvement. My "style" can be described as inconsistent to say the least. Even when I'm trying to copy something I've already drawn, it looks pretty different and usually worse. I'm almost 22 and I'm starting to feel like I'll never be able to learn. Do you have any advice to pass on?
1. Style doesn’t exist.
2. Check your art from years ago rather than a year ago. Day to day it’s hard to see improvement.
3. Art like anything has a really easy beginning and then anything you learn after that will take a while. Don’t fret.
4. Try to copy a piece someone you like made and see how they work. This will teach you a lot.
So I saw a short theory about this and someone has probably already pointed out these new details but I need to get this out.
SO LET’S GET STARTED SHALL WE.
First things first we know that Pearls are servants on Homeworld. Peridot explains this when they first start work on the drill. But she also mentions something else.
“And she looks like a Fancy one too. So who do you belong to anyway?”
Yes, yes Peridot that is the question. So our Pearl is a Fancy Pearl. Peridot also claimed just before this that Pearls are ‘made to order.’ so I’m assuming you’d have to be more important to have a Pearl made more ‘fancy’ than the regular made to order ones.
Now the biggest detail that has recently come up is Pictures of the Diamonds and their Pearls. Let’s look at Blue Diamond and her Pearl.
First thing’s first that I want to point out is their Palate, Blue Diamond is Obviously dark blue and her Pearl is a lighter blue. More importantly their Gem positions. Both are located on their chest. Okay sure they match but it’s not just Blue Diamond. IN the most recent episode ‘Message Received’ we see Yellow Diamond and her Pearl.
Same color Palate, and gem in the same spot.On top of this their hair styles mimic their owners as well. I’m assuming these are indicators for who they belong to, so they are more easily identifiable compared to the supposed hundreds of Pearls running about on Homeworld.
So that being said lets take a look
They both have their Gems on their heads. Based on her name and mural White Diamond has a white color Palate, like our lovely Pearl. The murals show the gem’s actual hairstyle as seen below
So we can assume that white diamonds hair is like our Pearls, spiked up in the back. EDIT: I also noticed that if you look at the pearls compared to their owners they also have outfits that mimic their diamonds as well!
Many people have thought that Pearl belonged to Rose, as did I. But if what I pointed out here applies then if Pearl is Fancy and should match her owner then she should be light pink, with her gem on her stomach, possibly curly hair and similar outfit.
I really would like to ask you people for help finding the source of these pink edits someone keeps making of my artwork!!
please if anyone has any info could you just give me the details in my ask box, i would really appreciate it! Please don’t contact the individuals yourselves because i would really like to do all that myself & just deal with it personally.
Since these are on weheartit already there are a lot of reposts about, so i get that there’s people who probably posted to tumblr but don’t know who actually made them
But you know i’m still keen to ask them!
i really don’t understand why someone would do this as like a joke to just be a dick or something, so i kind of feel like who ever is putting them online just doesn’t really understand the consequences of what they’re actually doing (all about that aesthetic)
So please if you got any info send me an ask!! thanks
Most of these have probably already been stated somewhere, but I thought I’d compile some of my own along with my personal favorites.
He can dance. I know this is a fairly common thing and I’m so glad it is but he can dance. And he will try any kind of dance at least once. Ballroom, hip hop, break dancing, ballet- you name it, he’s tried it. And he’s very good at it. (Did you see his hips moving when he did the voltron cheer? The boy can dance)
Before joining the Garrison he life-guarded at his local pool. He also volunteered to do it at camps and special community events and he even helped with swim lessons for the local kids every summer.
Has read all of My Immortal. Multiple times. He tried to make Hunk read it but he always got out of it somehow until one night when Hunk was messing with some engineering work when Lance just started reading it out loud.
Which leads into the fact that Lance is fantastic at reading out loud. He gets into it- gives every character their own voice and does motions and everything. He developed this skill because he reads to his younger siblings and cousins and nieces and nephews when he’s at home and it’s a large part of why Hunk didn’t just put in headphones when he realized what Lance was reading to him.
The two of them from that day on will randomly quote it when they see fit. “So what did you do then?” “We started Frenching passively.” and “Why did you do such a thing, you mediocre dunces?”
Lance keeps his music meticulously organized. His CD’s are alphabetized in their own genre categories and every song on his ipod has the title of the song, band name, and what album it’s from. He has carefully thought out playlists for every occasion he can think of and after joining Voltron when something happens that he has the perfect playlist for but his ipod’s back on Earth he gets seemingly inexplicably frustrated for a few moments before bursting out in a purposely horrid rendition of one of the songs.
He would be a really good figure skater what with his fabulous dancing skills if only he could figure out how to balance first. As it is he can’t skate without holding onto the edge or someone else and even then he still falls multiple times.
He also knows every lyric to the High School Musical songs. Just the first one and like two songs from the second one because the second movie’s plot made him mad so he didn’t bother with anything outside of “What time is it?” and “I don’t dance” because hey they’re catchy.
Keith one day during training for forming mental links makes a comment along the lines of “Lance why do you feel so… wrong?” Hunk groans and it’s the only warning any of them get before Lance yells enthusiastically ”My head’s in the game but my heart’s in the song!!!!”
Um… that’s it for now. I probably have more but this got super song sorry
CROSSTALK: MARK X JR. (TRANS) K-BOY Paradise Vol. 15 - Jr.
First impression when you met each other?
Mark: When I first came to Korea, he greeted me in English: “My name is Park Jinyoung!” I didn’t know his real name so I thought: “Why is he saying JYP’s name?”
Jr: Despite this, I tried speaking in English since you came from America (laughs). Mark has fair skin but back in those days, he was darker. That made me feel something freely and I thought “he’s a different type of person from me.” I’m from Busan but even coming to Seoul was a cultural shock already. So seeing someone who came from America feels like seeing someone who came from a different star.
By the way, why was Mark so tanned then?
Mark: I like going to the beach in the summer.
Jr: There’s a sea in front of our house. I used to go fishing very often but I never got tanned like that (laughs).
Please, tell us each other’s good traits.
Mark: Jr. is very kind and good at taking care of someone.
Mark & Jr: (look at each other and laugh.)
Mark: It’s just a small thing… but he always asks me: “did you eat already?”
A guy who’s caring/full of concern is liked by everyone.
Mark: Yes, yes. That’s why everyone likes Jr.
Jr: Mark is the oldest but you won’t feel there’s a wall between you. He treats even the younger ones as friends even though our maknae Yugyeom is younger than him by four years. Being that open is wonderful, even more so you’ll still feel that he’s an older brother. That’s why he’s so popular!
Please, tell us a surprising thing about each other that only you both know.
Mark: I think honesty is our charm. Not being able to lie about ourselves might be our charm. That’s why I can’t think of anything that’s surprising about us.
2PM also said the same thing.
Jr: Maybe because it’s a JYP style. There’s no such thing as surprising about us! GOT7 is what GOT7 is.
If you were to give a name to this pair, what would it be?
Jr: Angel Project (laughs) just kidding.
Mark: MaJin. From “Mark” and “Jr.”
What kind of performance would MaJin want to show everyone?
Jr: I’m going to sing while sitting down. So Mark, please flip over and over around me. Mark is in charge of tough things that require strength.
Mark: For me, a love song would be good. Wouldn’t a soft ballad be good?
Jr: A soft ballad with a hip-hop atmosphere would be good, too!
Both of you are famous among your fans for being close. Why do you get along so well?
Jr: I wonder why? We’re always like this. I feel comfortable when I’m with Mark. He’s trustworthy and he’s very caring. Every morning he wakes me up, “Jr. wake up~ wake up~”
Oh, he can be a handful.
Mark: Jr.? No, not just Jr. but everyone (laughs).
I know you think that we were meant to be together, and I believed that too, for a while. But I think we’re trying too hard to keep something that has already been broken, from breaking. You and I, we will never be happy together. And it was hard to come to terms with this realization, but sometimes, caring about someone isn’t a good enough reason for being with them. I am so sorry that we could not find a way to make each other happy. I will be thinking about you ten years from now, wondering how things would have been if we could have made it work. Your name will always sound like a tragedy to me. When my children ask me about my past, you will have taken up so much of it. I will tell them about you, I will tell them about how much I loved you, and how badly I wanted for it to work out, and how sometimes, letting go is the [only] option. I cannot bear to see you with anyone else, but I am going to have to. We were never good together. We always knew this couldn’t last forever, we couldn't last forever.
The top half of the image is clearly the Mystery Shack, right? But it’s been transformed into something living. It has teeth, a tongue, an eye, and a heart. There’s a gold pyramid inside - with a top hat. I assumed this was just the artist’s interpretation, but I’m wondering if there’s more to it than that.
Bill has been turning inanimate objects into monsters. He turned the town water tower into a monster as well. If the unicorn hair barrier around the Shack gets broken somehow, he could possibly turn the entire Shack into a monster - and the Pines might need to destroy the Shack in order to defeat Bill.
This would constitute a “substantial sacrifice” for the Pines family. What does Stan care about most besides his friends and family? His business. Running the Mystery Shack represents something he was finally good at after years of failed attempts. What does Ford tell Stan to give up? His house, the place where all his research took place. And for Dipper and Mabel, the Shack is home base for all their summer adventures.
By giving up the Shack, both Stan and Ford would be letting go of their pasts in a way, allowing them to start with a clean slate. One thing standing in the way of their reconciliation (i.e. the argument over which brother keeps the Shack) would be gone. They’d be free to either rebuild a new Shack together or rebuild the Stan O’ War and leave Gravity Falls.
Also, the Mystery Shack is a kind of character itself. It’s been in every episode in the series. I’m not saying destroying it would count as the rumored character death, but it would certainly have the same emotional impact without killing off any main characters.
I suddenly have a powerful need for Olympic gymnasts Sam and Gabriel. There’s Sam, all tall and powerfully built like you’d expect a male gymnast to be (maybe he’s even like world champion or something), but then there’s the new short guy who unexpectedly made the Olympic team and is a real contender to compete with Sam, and oh god why does this Gabriel dude have to be so attractive because we’re already housed in the Olympic Village together and oh my god bad timing? And why does he get under Sam’s skin so much?
