Inspired by Tides of Darkness, where Khadgar actually smiles often, and his friendship with Turalyon is great.
Peregrïn is very pleased about it. She’s happy to see Khadgar smile and laugh and just to witness this friendship. Despite what’s happening, she’s happy to see this, it’s a light in the darkness. So I thought it’d be important to sketch it somehow.
She has such a baby face… I should practice to draw her with a more mature face, though I want her to keep that young baby face somehow xD Peregrïn the squishy face.
This season, in many ways, was about Bellamy being able to let go and recognize that his sister is her own woman and that she doesn’t necessarily need him to be his sister’s keeper anymore,” Rothenberg explains. “For Octavia to realize how much she does love him is really cool, as these are now two people who are almost talking to each other for the first time as equals. It’s an important jumping-off point for the episode.
Another ex-fan of TG: I've seen some people saying that TG's drop in quality is due to its raise in popularity. As in: when TG wasn't a big hit in Japan, Ishida had more freedom and creative choice but once it got an anime that upped sales, his editors started to interfere more and push for some things that sell (and not all that sells is good, as many anime titles show). I can't read Japanese but a few fans said his tweets suggest he's lost interest. If that's the case where money won = sad.
Yeah I definitely agree with all that, and I’ve heard some things about Ishida losing interest as well which makes me sad but it’s understandable
