The @funimation dub of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is out and they fucked it up
Japanese: T: But I’ll let you know this one. T: I love you, Miss Kobayashi! K: Are you planning to eat me? T: I don’t mean that way! I mean sexually! K: I’m a woman, though?
Funimation dub: T: However I can certainly let you know one thing I like. T: It’s you, I love you, Miss Kobayashi! K: You’re gonna eat me? T: No, not like that, like sexually! K: I’m not into women or dragons.
In response to people asking why this was changed to have Kobayashi saying she’s straight, the dub writer on Twitter said:
1.Proactive language (not reactive) is character appropriate for Miss K. 2.Confusion with sexuality is at odds with timeline/dub culture. 3.Didn’t want the implication that Miss K finds something “wrong” about lesbianism. She doesn’t; just not into it personally. 4.Timing.
It’s almost like certain people don’t understand how character growth and character development work…. Babies, be patient. Characters and stories have to start at A before they can get toZ. (½) Sometimes the journey is scary and challenging. That’s what makes it interesting and fun! Enjoy the ride!! You’re only on episode one. (2/2)
Friendly reminder that Klaus’ letter was preceded by “that is the beginning of another story”, which is meant to highlight key components in the letter, such as Klaus wanting to thank Caroline in person. This suggests that they do eventually meet up, and that their meeting is not a mere fleeting chapter in their lives.
This isn’t a nod to their friendship. They’ve never been just friends. This is a promise of a romantic future.
There is no doubt in my mind that if Caroline and Klaus were to ever reunite (and according to the finale they do) that Klaus would want something romantic from her. And if you believe otherwise, you’re kidding yourself.
However long it takes is a throwback to a romantic scene. A romantic scene that suggests a promise of a romantic future between the characters. This isn’t mere banter between friends. Because Caroline has never been just a friend to Klaus. It’s a promise of a romantic future.
“that is the beginning of another story” “however long it takes”
Eventually this story will be realized. And it isn’t a story about friendship.
I have no idea what in the shitting hell is going on.
ESPECIALLY yesterday. WHY did all these professionals ascending onto Louis’ property look like a play put on by aliens about how to Human™?
Like, “Here I am, I’m the doctor man! With my doctor tool!”
“I am in my lawyer suit with my lawyer papers because I’m a very important lawyering man.”
“I"m the coffee man doing my coffee job, standing out of the way, for that pap on the lawn!”
“I’M THE MOTHERFUCKIN DOGGG TELLIN Y'ALL TO GET YA NASTY ASSES AWAY FROM MY BOIIIIII”
I don’t really have any answers except that all of this is
It is so over the top and extra…I just really don’t even know what to say. It is a fact that the paparazzi are called for 90% of the shots you will ever see. The airport pap was called, presumably I feel, to capture them in their Tweedle Dumb and Dumber jumpsuits, which is fine because it’s clear that they are both under some sort of arrangement with Vetements. The return of what’s her face isn’t that surprising given that she was pictured with Gigi for official Tommy Hilfiger promo months ago and Zayn and Louis are still both, as far as I know, under Syco, so it would make sense that they roped their beards in together, and that they would use them for mutual promotion with TH. Maximum exposure required Zayn and Louis’ participation clearly. Louis recently followed Tommy Hilfiger on Twitter so it’s just like breadcrumb trail of stuntness that is right in front of everyone.
There is so much overwhelming evidence to support that this was all planned. I don’t know about the hoodrats jumping them at LAX being real or fake, but I imagine that the “scuffle with the paps” was intentional, thus giving way to Dan fuckin W’s article about Louis’ mental stability and then the comment from the Desperado of Calabasas about him “not being himself”…this seems like a terribly drawn out and horrible season finale that everyone’s just tuning into out of fuckin obligation to the years they’ve invested in the show.
It’s just…sad. It’s really sad for people who have bothered to look beyond the headlines, which are fabricated by yellow journalists and shitty PR people to build a narrative that is not true, and who know that this is the last thing that someone like Louis Tomlinson deserves. He deserves exactly none of this shit.
Not to continuously bring it up, and I wish I didn’t have to, but what I wrote about this subject over a year ago now is more relevant than ever. And that’s extremely depressing. If you haven’t read these, then hopefully you will and they can shed some insight into what I believe is actually happening behind the scenes.
ok but i can’t believe that they’re writing Kara as being happy that she lost her job just because she can spend more time with her boyfriend…
in season 1 she was so ambitious and picking up everything from Cat on how to be a shark and she fought for her job and for her promotion and explicitly said that the job is what keeps her sane and grounded and that she needs it. and she even broke up with James to focus on herself.
an ambitious person like Kara would not be happy just sitting at home doing nothing, i call complete bs on that. but hey, it’s a white boy who needs fixing so i guess she can sacrifice her own development and everything she stands for just to be with him and help him grow. suddenly, just having the boy is enough because he’s white and immature. i guess her new job is taking care of him and fixing his mistakes
Kara: breaks up with James to “focus on herself” also Kara: focuses on the white boy instead
Guys I’m sobbing so hard rn he and his boyfriend should not be treated like this :( I cannot believe this has happened it’s two thousand-fucking-seventeen love is love this isn’t right and not only did they kick him out they physically assaulted him he helped me come out and people wonder why us LGBT &etc in our community love in fear ????? I can’t right now guys I’m so worried for ryland(Shane’s bf) & Shane :(
bro u get me. We both cry at least 28 times a day and lowkey hate having feelings. We can't stand showing people that we are actually big babies and we are too defensive but at LEAST WE GET EACH OTHER.
ur always centered and calm and a lil bab but if you tell me I'm the only person you've told about something (that you've told everyone) one MORE TIME IM GOING TO SNAP.
yes, I believe in aliens. No I don't think bigfoot has a vendetta against you. I don't get why you just told me your life story but your mother seems like a nice lady.
you make me feel like a shitty person because I don't like feelings or being empathetic or putting effort towards other people. IT'S WHATEVER THO.
I see right thru you. I'm a Leo. I know why you are doing that. The Validations™. I know. It's me on the daily. You're doing good tho.
IF YOU DO NOT CALM DOWN RIGHT NOW. They don't care that you said "you too" when they said "have a good meal". EVERY ONE DOES THAT. DONT WORRY ABOUT IT.

NICE MAKING PLANS. #cancelled. ALWAYS. Also. Nice use of sarcasm to hide ur feels. JK IF YOU MAKE ONE MORE SARCASTIC REMARK ILL YELL. I'm already yelling tho...
emotional lil bab. Stop beating yourself up. Its okay to feel things and its okay to admit that you aren't having a good day. BUT IF YOU SASS ME ONE MORE TIME.
IF YOU DISTANCE URSELF ANYMORE YOULL BE ENTIRELY IN SPACE. I admire the fact that you can go a whole 24 hours (three years?!??) without crying. I can't achieve that but I have aspirations.
S T R E S S. M E. O U T. if you do not like the choice. Why did you make it. You are the controller of ur own destiny. Ily but wyd.
Another supposed essential character of fascism is its anticapitalist, antibourgeois animus. Early fascist movements flaunted their contempt for bourgeois values and for those who wanted only ‘to earn money, money, filthy money.’ They attacked 'international finance capitalism’ almost as loudly as they attacked socialists. They even promised to expropriate department-store owners in favor of patriotic artisans, and large landowners in favor of peasants.
Whenever fascist parties acquired power, however, they did nothing to carry out these anticapitalist threats. By contrast, they enforced with the utmost violence and thoroughness their threats against socialism. Street fights over turf with young communists were among their most powerful propaganda images. Once in power, fascist regimes banned strikes, dissolved independent labor unions, lowered wage earners’ purchasing power, and showered money on armaments industries, to the immense satisfaction of employers. Faced with these conflicts between words and actions concerning capitalism, scholars have drawn opposite conclusions. Some, taking the words literally, consider fascism a form of radical anticapitalism. Others, and not only Marxists, take the diametrically opposite position that fascists came to the aid of capitalism in trouble, and propped up by emergency means the existing system of property distribution and social hierarchy.
This book takes the position that what fascists DID tells us at least as much as what they SAID. What they said cannot be ignored, of course, for it helps explain their appeal. Even at its most radical, however, fascist’s anticapitalist rhetoric was selective.
i can’t believe we started this series with ronan lynch wearing violence and anger as a second skin, ronan lynch terrified of who he was, ronan lynch with self-hate boiling in his veins, ronan lynch so ready to die that he begs for it every night in his dreams and we end with ronan lynch dreaming of light, ronan lynch breathing in and breathing out without worry, ronan lynch looking love in the eye and saying, “i deserve you”, ronan lynch smiling and happy and unafraid.
