The Nobushi are the defenders of the villages too far from the Imperial City for the army to reach. They are elegant fighters with a curious weapon. They have the lightest armor that allows them to move like the wind but cannot take a lot of damage. But don’t let their appearance fool you, they are one of the most effective fighters the Samurai have.
Understandably, Trini’s characterization will be a disappointment to many. Yes, there is an implication that she is attracted to other girls, but it is open-ended enough that those who wish to vehemently deny her sexual orientation will find the wiggle room to do so. That said, it is a considerable improvement over the supposedly gay character in live-action Beauty and the Beast; even if it is only implied, Trini’s sexual orientation is a topic that is at least treated with respect, and it is a detail that lends real-world weight to her sense of alienation and her generally closed-off nature. It’s a step in the right direction, particularly for a franchise that famously mistreated an openly-gay member of the original cast. Still, I would have much preferred if there were more explicit confirmation of her attraction to girls. I hope the planned future installments rectify this and take the time to further explore this aspect of her character.
First of all I’ve got to say sorry because I told you that I was going to record a fancam and I did… until my card got full at the end of the warmup *facepalm* so I’ll still post the warmup tomorrow but yeah.

..AND HE FORGOT TO BOW !
ANYWAYS I’M OUT (OMG DID THIS REALLY HAPPEN OR WHAT ?)
sometimes there were those moments in life that caught you off guard, leaving your breath a little bit caught in your lungs. alec hadn’t expected it, but here in his room, between the dark wood and his ivory bed sheets, this was one of them. magnus was lit up by the low glow of the lamp light, settled on his bed so casually, his face framed against the dark headboard and alec found himself lost for words. maybe it was the spell of the night, falling over a twilight world in his warm room with the curtains drawn, but alec didn’t think so. no, it was magnus himself, wasn’t it? it was warm sleepiness around his face that didn’t do anything to dampen the spark in his dark brown eyes. it was the smallest hint of a smile on his lips, pulling up the corners of his gorgeous mouth as he sat there, with his hands resting in his lap. it was the steady rise and fall of his chest and the way he was looking at alec in the hushed quiet, his focus making alec feel like something was melting in his ribcage.
if you stay, I’ll make you a night Like no night has been or will be again I’ll sail on your smile, I’ll ride on your touch I’ll talk to your eyes that I love so much But if you go, I won’t cry For the good’s gone from goodbye If you go away, If you go away, If you go away
I just sat down a watched the DuckTales reboot pilot, and speaking as a huge fan of the original, this seems like a great reboot and a pretty good show over all.
I'ma ramble on my thoughts, what I liked, and what I hope happens below
They differentiated Huey, Dewey, and Louie perfectly. With the original, I wouldn’t say they were the same character, just that it was Really hard to tell them apart (the only reason I was able to before the Reboot was because I knew Huey as red because red is a bright hue, Dewey is Blue because Dew is water and water is stylized as blue, and Louie is green because green’s the left over)
I knew one was the leader, one was smart, and one was better at tricks, but I wasn’t able to do so off the top of my head as a kid. You couldn’t really get much from their designs beyond Mischievous Little Boys from their old designs. I can’t sing the reboot enough praises for this.
You could really tell that there was love from old fans that went into this, between the theme and Scrooge’s reputation as a retired adventurer going back into it- seemed like a nice metaphor for how loved the original was and how DuckTales is back
I loves me some loving families in cartoons, and this delivered. The way they fleshed out the backstory for Donald and Scrooge, and the way everyone interacted was a nice addition. I like how Della Duck (if that is her name here) is important to the backstory, instead of just being a nonentity name who carries no role. I’m looking forward to learning about her.
Webby is Very different, I’d even go as far as to say she’s an In Name Only adaptation, but that’s fine. She’s likable, and the Reboot is trying to do its own thing, fleshing everyone out more. The Reboot is connected to the original because it’s a reboot, but I can respect as being a different show.
That’s also why I’m okay with the butler being adapted out, despite him being one of my favorite characters. He seems to have been absorbed into Beckley. Just wish it was under a different name, like how the different Scooby Doo iterations had different names (A Pup Named Scooby Doo, What’s New Scooby Doo, Mystery Inc, ect).
I still prefer the animation and art style of the original, but that’s prolly because I grew up with it
One missed opportunity I felt the original had was the lack of references to the other Micky and Co. I don’t recall any, actually, and all I’m saying is child me would have Loved a crossover with the Goof Troop. I just want nods to the others- Scrooge mentioning the richest Mouse in the world while Donald chuckles at him, or Donald mentioning his friend’s son who used to babysit before going off to college.
do you think the watchtower’s sensors recorded the super moon in their files as one more observation of a phenomenon in the immediate space perimeter and, more importantly, do you think the following day batman discreetly changed the log files to read “bat moon” for his own amusement. and because he’s basic
