Inktober #18! I drew my favorites from the new Ducktales! I love this show and how they have given a new (and lovable) spin for the characters like Gyro and Flintheart (Keith Ferguson is the best as always). I want to draw more ducks, this was so fun!
what she means:
in the last stand, korra risked the entire avatar cycle and her own life going into the avatar state just to save kuvira and the whole zoom in her face showing exactly the determination she had to do just that without knowing if she would succeed... sister, that entire scene keeps me up at night, makes me lose my track, stops my thoughts mid exams and to this day i don't know another piece of media that shows a woman this strong, benevolent, good, passionate and human. the legend of korra? a masterpiece. fight me
What gets me is Souji was literally going to kill Tetsu during their test….was going to end that boy’s life with a bamboo sword (not even a bokken), and no one saw it enough to stop him.
Souji had become deadly serious. He had changed from his relaxed style to Tennen Rishin Syu….
And when Hijikata stops him, he literally goes “how many times??” IT’S NOT THE FIRST TIME HE’S NEARLY KILLED SOMEONE SPARRING.
While it speaks volumes about the relationship between Hijikata and Souji, how Hijikata really is the one person who has any real control over him, it really speaks to Tetsunosuke’s potential.
Souji’s talent comes from being able to read his opponents movements. They take the time out to listen in on his thought process as they fight, as Tetsu picks up a second sword.
But Tetsu doesn’t follow the normal routine of a two sword style, he catches Souji completely by surprise, and the point gained was a rushed, panicked one. The sword was aimed at Souji’s neck, his throat, and it is easy to assume he’s not often faced with that. They don’t clue you in to his mindset but the change in stance makes it clear.
Tetsu is unpredictable. Therefore he’s dangerous.
That’s why Souji gets really serious.
But afterwards when they talk, he joked about his scolding and goes “ah… I’m such a dangerous guy, aren’t I??”
That attitude is his true armor. The deadliest man in the Shinsengumi hides it with a playful, childlike attitude.
