i will not be attracted to animated characters

Summer Anime 2016

This summer we have so many anime with an all-male cast, I was so happy I decided to to a rec/ranking/review/summary. Note: I only watch anime with mostly males I’m sorry it’s just what I like lol so this list may not match yours. (I cannot stand female leads - except maybe Gintama? - because they will escalate into romantic relationships and they annoy me to no end. It’s like the only purpose of females is romance and I hate that.) And a warning is that I’m kind of shallow so I normally look at the guys’ looks and then their character. But good character and relationship developments are definitely essential to me too.

1. Fukigen na Mononokean

I’ve rec it so many times I feel like I’m part of the official publicity comm but it’s really good :) My favourite character is Abeno cause he’s really adorable and tsundere (?) haha. If you like youkai, friendship and touching moments, do try this out!! It’s a little similar to Natsume Yuujinchou too.

2. Servamp

It looks really interesting so I watched it and when I saw the OP I screamed cause all-male cast! Compared to Spring 2016 this season does look more appealing to me. And I’ve ran out of anime with all bromance (other than sports anime) and no romance. So anyway for Servamp, Kuro was a really cute cat, and the setting seems interesting enough for me to chase. I feel like I might not like the main character as much though but we’ll see. 

3. Fudanshi Kokou Seikatsu

Ahh this is really cute I can relate so much to the main character as a Fujoshi myself :D and I can hardly find friends who can fangirl with me. It’s really sad to be embarrassed for liking gay ships ;n; The only bad thing about the series is that it’s too short each episode haha.

4. D.Gray-man Hallow

I’ve read the manga but didn’t understand most of it. Still, it’s likeable and I like Allen and Kanda. I felt like this season they beautified all the characters and Kanda definitely looks better with his new hairstyle/fringe :DD I hope they can animate most of the manga and I hope we can finally understand what is going on with the 14th.

5. Handa-kun

I just watched the 1st episode today and all I can is that it’s really good and hilarious omg. Only it’s too short with the first 9min trying to break the fourth wall and I couldn’t understand the humor at all. Still, the rest of the episode was worth it! Can’t wait for the rest!

Man, Genndy Tartakovsky really does know how to make an animated man attractive. I mean

take Samurai Jack for example (the best example in my opinion 👌👀 )  

he has a great body (drawn and animated very well), a cute face, and absolutely charming character and personality traits (plus good morals)

he’s funny, he’s awkward, he’s kind, he’s respectful, he’s handsome - all of his traits make him (according to me at least) one of the hottest animated guys out there. I’ve been in love with him since I was little lol.

Then there’s Lance from Sym-Bionic Titan

(I’ll admit he was a bit much with his shirt off but) Again, drawn and animated well, interesting personality and character (tho a little broody), and, because of this, also very attractive.

Hell, even Anakin freaking Skywalker is mildy attractive in Genndy’s show Star Wars: Clone Wars (well, maybe not his face, but)

and I’ve never found Anakin attractive in anything else!

lol The point is that, from an animation + personality trait standpoint, Genndy does a damn fine job of making fine men.

When people make fun of Bioware’s character isn’t that they are unattractive, it’s because they look fucking weird.

Ashley was completely fine in the first game, now look at her in ME3

The faces look weird, like they don’t match the heads they’re on.

Laughlines look weird.

Facial animations look weird.

It’s an uncanny valley, I look at them and see something trying to look human and failing, it’s creepy as shit.

Look at this old lady from Witcher 3, she not even close to being attractive but I’m not repulsed by looking at her.

Nah but really, can we normalize animated movies for adults that aren’t comedies, please? I’m getting really tired of every YA novel finally getting a movie and it’s just watered down into an insultingly childish version of the original. Like. Have filmmakers not noticed that movies like Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, etc. made a huge profit because they kept the plot and characters in tact, attracting much of the original audience back. Why can’t the same be done in animated movies, even when animals or dragons or whatever are the main characters? Take the movie seriously, and the book fans will see it, and convince like everyone they know to give it a watch. At the very least, a bunch of people will wanna go see the edgy movie about bunnies they heard their friends talking about. I mean, Watership Down was dark as hell, and it’s pretty popular all things considered. But this is mostly just an incoherent sleepy rant about how I wish Guardians of Ga'Hoole had a better movie adaptation tbh.

i hate remembering male characters that i used to have crushes on. i know i'm gay but it would still be so easy to pretend that i'm straight because of these boys. when they're animated and they're not real people it's easy to think i could be attracted to them. it sucks because some of these characters mean a lot to me but it hurts so much to be reminded of how easy it can be to pretend to be hetero sometimes

beauty & the beast (2017)

Saw Beauty and the Beast at the dine-in today. Enjoyed it overall, although, as I feared, it suffers from being … a largely shot-for-shot remake of a beloved classic. Which means that, alas, it’s largely a pale imitation.

However, there were nonetheless things that I enjoyed IMMENSELY. In the Prince’s first appearance, for example, he (as a human) is dolled up in this fucking gorgeous garish wild fantastic effeminate rococo makeup, and I freakin LOVED IT.

MORE ROCOCO DANCERS, PLEASE, DISNEY. MORE PRINCES IN EYE SHADOW AND ROUGE!!

Other highlights:

  • Dan Stevens makes a great Beast, and “Evermore” really is a lovely song.
  • Luke Evans makes an even better Gaston, and Gaston actually gets some bits of backstory and depth that I liked, such as that he and LeFou have recently returned from war.
  • I know there’s been so much controversy about LeFou, but I really advise reserving judgment until you’ve watched the film. LeFou was actually one of my fave parts of the film and honestly bears little resemblance to his animated counterpart. He’s dry, sensible, very much the brains of the operation, and has an actual, sympathetic character arc. 
  • That said, however, the creators have oversold the degree to which the film has any gay presence. LeFou’s attraction to Gaston is so subtle that someone not inclined to see it could easily ignore it, and the “gay moment” is blink-and-you’ll-miss-it. Literally: my friend blinked and she missed it.
  • There’s a decent amount of racial diversity, with black characters throughout the cast playing characters of all sorts. I was particularly fond of the bookseller.

…Biggest complaints:

  • I’ve heard a lot of criticism about Emma Watson’s singing. Her singing is … fine, by normal human standards. But this is a musical. It’s probably not great for the lead character to be the weakest singer in the entire cast.
  • The CGI characters are not the best. They really lack expressiveness and personality. I mean, I know they’re supposed to be made of hard materials, but I honestly got bored during “Be Our Guest” because despite however much life Ewan McGregor put into his voice, the Lumiere on screen remained pretty stiff and static and dull.
  • And again, seriously, I know this is just my personal philosophy about remakes, but go big or go home, my dudes. If the original is so beloved that you’ll never top it, why even try to do the same shots, the same outfits, the same dialogue? You’re unlikely to improve upon them, so make the film your own instead. My favorite parts of this film were the original bits: the Prince in his ball makeup, the dancing and swordplay during “Gaston,” LeFou’s character arc, Paris, Agatha. I didn’t like all the updated lyrics, but I’m all for updating other aspects.

All that said, though, I still enjoyed it; it was fun, it was gorgeous to look at, and there were parts that truly captured my imagination. I would absolutely watch it again. Though I was not, perhaps, as emotionally invested as the drunk girl next to me seemed to think. She offered me a napkin during the Beast’s death scene because she thought I was crying. My allergies have been bad. I was sniffling because of a stuffed nose. 

But thank you, drunk girl. I really appreciate that you care.

Aaron’s Top 7: Attractive Animated Males

I’m not a fan male designs in animation. At least, not in the way I’m going to be judging them in today’s list.

Previously, I did a top 7 list of attractive female characters. The problem I had with that one was selecting characters based on personality over design with cosmetics being an aesthetic factor. With this list, the issue is reversed.

When you think of a male anime character, you think of a slim guy with slumped shoulders and a soft face. Any character that’s ‘masculine’ is often to an extreme to show how muscular they are. The point is that they look ‘pretty’. Just about 70% of male characters in anime can easily be redrawn as a girl. 

Which brings me to my issue with male characters in western cartoons. I can look at them and immediately tell who the protagonist is. You’re the comic relief. You’re the wise old mentor. You’re the token black character. Either that, or they’re animals. I like Stan Pines from Gravity Falls because they put a spin on the grumpy old man trope making him a greedy conman who doesn’t stop conning people as the show goes on. But design wise, I see him and go, ‘you’re the grump with a big heart’. And before you ask, no, that old dust buckle is nowhere near this list.    

I just became numb to designs of a lot of male characters since there’s so many men outnumbering females in media. I don’t really think about which one stands out. I’m just seeing how the character develops in the show. 

‘Nerd who wants to prove himself and has some sort of famous/prestigious family/background’. Let me guess, you just named 20 male characters in your head didn’t you? So why am I doing this list? Well, here are some characters who have a design that I found interesting with personalities to match. 

Same rules as the women’s list: 

Character comes before design. 

No villains/antagonist. 

Characters must be 18+.

It’s my list so if your hubby isn’t here…too damn bad.

He’s a fucking idiot. Know that you know why he’s at the bottom, he’s actually got one of the most unique designs in anime. As I said before, anime men are fucking twigs with slumped shoulders.

Goku is actually muscular in a way that isn’t comical like in most cartoons. He’s build like an Adonis, true, but he’s still very close to how a real human would look opposed to the over the top shit in stuff like ‘JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure’ or ‘Kenichi-The Mightiest Disciple’.

That being said, everyone tries to emulate the character. A big/powerful guy who’s as gentle as a bird and believes in the good of others while holding his ground for his beliefs. I’d like him a lot better if this dynamic didn’t create so many clones of the guy. Naruto, Luffy (One Piece), Gon Freecss (Hunter x Hunter), ect.

Spike Spiegel-Cowboy Bebop 

Alright. So while Goku is built like a brick house, Spike here is more on the slim side. Most men in anime don’t look like their balls have dropped despite being ‘martial arts experts’. Spike isn’t stacked but the few scenes where he’s shirtless prove that he’s got some meat. Again, he’s more how someone would realistically look given his fighting style. He’s quick on his feet and loose with his punches. He’s actively trying to wear the person down but knows where to hit them for a k.o if he’s in a hurry. 

He’s cocky but doesn’t go around bragging about his skills like most protagonist. Rash and impulsive but isn’t hyperactive. He’s just a cool dude with a checkered past. If the situation gets the best of him, he’ll let his wounds heal and go at it again. If there’s money involved that is. 

Whatever happens, happens.

I just wanted to say kudos to the crew for the way they animated Yuuri crying

Crying is ugly and messy. People don’t look their best when crying. But in so many animated shows and movies, I feel like a lot of the times, even when a character is full-out bawling, they still look flawless. But here, they actually made Yuuri’s crying face so… natural. Yuuri’s a pretty attractive guy, but when he starts crying, he doesn’t look so great (no I’m not calling this boy ugly lol, just saying that his attractiveness dropped a bit with his crying face, as it should). His face is distorted, his eyebrows are knit, his eyes are scrunched up, his face is flushed, his lips are almost quivering at moments. Aside from the Ghibli Tears™ (which I honestly love, the large tear drops always have a nice artistic and emotional impact for me personally), this is a very realistic cry.

Also I really appreciated this moment…

I always feel better after a good cry, and I’m glad Yuuri feels the same and that he has no shame in crying

I love Yuri on Ice :’)

anonymous asked:

before i ask who's the most attractive i wanna ask do you have any other projects? just to be specific.

First of all, thanks for asking this, I didn’t know how to acknowledge it.
Yes, i’m working on 3 projects right now
The first one you guys already probably know, i’m working on a pilot an animated show called “TeeVeePeeGeé”, starring the ocs i usually draw here.

The second project is another pilot for an animated show called “Mouchon” and i’m the lead character designer. The show is gonna be about a rat who travels in time and get bitten by a radioactive human. it’s really crazy

And the third project is an RPG game that i’m making with some friendos with my oc Anto as the main character. Dunno how much i can say about it at the moment but, i’m really excited on how it’s turning out.

spadesslick  asked:

The two male characters from today's comic look an awful lot like blonde-Ryan and too-old-Tim. Did Ryan and Tim inadvertently create new fashion trends that spanned the country?

FACTS I REMEMBER FROM 2005: The idea of those characters was that when Amy tried to leave, she just attracted people who were like the ones she left behind, instead of new, cooler people. That was meant to be a subtle joke but maybe I should have telegraphed it with an animated GIF. 

anonymous asked:

As Stephen Colbert said, is it really surprising LeFou might be gay ? From what I remembered in the animated version, he spends a whole song singing about how perfect Gaston is and how thick his neck is.

As previous anon said, it’s possible that he wants to BE Gaston as opposed to having a romantic attraction to him. Honestly it’s been so long since I’ve seen the movie though, and I don’t really care one way or the other what his sexuality is. He’s a minor character anyway, and the movie will play out the same regardless.

maybe my thing is I’ve never been attracted to an animated character so I’m just sitting here like………. what’s happening……………………………………

In all seriousness, the 2011 movie version of Tintin was the most frustratingly attractive animated character ever

I mean, LOOK AT HIM

LOOK AT THOSE BEAUTIFULLY HYPNOTIC EYES

AND THAT PERFECT JAWLINE

AND THOSE AMAZING HANDS

AND THAT UNBELIEVABLY GORGEOUS SMILE

AND THAT INFURIATINGLY SEXY SMIRK

AND THAT LOVELY GINGER HAIR JUST BEGGING TO BE RUFFLED

AND ASLKDFJSLIEUAROWEAJWKLFJWEIRU THAT MOUTH UGGGH

AND GOOD LORD THOSE ARMS FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

AND LOOK AT THE RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF SWAG HE HAS WHILE JUST CHILLING IN HIS CAR

AND WHEN HE’S SITTING IN THIS RANDOM BEACH CHAIR

AND SEE HOW *&$!*@#$*#ING HOT HE IS WHILE HOLDING A GUN

AND WHEN HE’S WET AND HOLDING A GUN

AND WHEN HE’S WET AND ANGRY AND HOLDING A GUN

SCREW YOU WETA DIGITAL WHY DID YOU MAKE HIM SO PERFECT I HAVE HAD NO SANITY FOR THE PAST 2 ½ YEARS BECAUSE OF THIS DAMN FLAWLESS CGI MASTERPIECE OF GODLY HOTNESS NOW I WILL NEVER FIND AN ACTUAL REAL LIFE MAN BECAUSE I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS THING YOU CREATED THAT’S EVEN MORE ATTRACTIVE THAN THE ACTOR WHO PLAYED HIM WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU STOP RUINING MY LIFE

Just UGH I CAN’T IT’S NOT FAAAAIRRRRRRR
