how does this guy look?? Ive been working 3 days to make his design look it’s best
he’s an anxious/low-tempered lava boi that has a best friend who’s very calm and collected and he relies on her to help him out when he’s going through tough stuff
i havent named him yet but i’m tryna go for somethin hawaiian-based
idk why i submitted, just felt like seein what you guys think xDD I tried to avoid same-face syndrome for this OC and added stuff I wouldn’t usually add xDD
Goin of what’s given, there isn’t rlly much for me to nitpick on, overall his design seems to be going in a good direction so far tho! I’d say the colors work out pretty well for him, considering he’s volacano/lava based :0c
modern magic au where there is a wizard version of the internet and muggles can’t get to it so they don’t have to hide anything about magic but it still has all of the different types of social media and the marauders each get a tumblr
remus: remus would have a hipster blog oh my god it would be all nature aesthetics and meaningful quotes and different things that could help with anxiety/depression/other mental disorders and pictures of old books and a lot of weird indie music and “moony this is embarrassing i can’t be seen in public with you you’re ruining my punk cred” “shut up padfoot my blog is fine” “but mooooony there are pictures of baby rabbits in flower pots” “yes it’s a metaphor for my furry little problem” “screw you and your metaphors” “i’m sure you’d love to” “MOONY”
james: james’ blog would be filled with quidditch like there would be facts about all the teams and players and play by plays of every match and info on pretty much every broomstick and also a bunch of terrible puns and other stupid jokes (“you know it’s not really that funny prongs” “excuse you i am hilarious”) and MEMES and the epic (and somewhat exaggerated) stories of pranks he pulled not to mention ideas for future pranks and he’d also sneak pictures of lily and post them with sappy captions because he’s a dork that way and lily teases him about it but she actually really likes it
sirius: sirius would have a bunch of those ‘screw society’ posts and pictures of motorbikes and cigarettes and bruised knuckles because he is of course very punk rock and he’d post a variety of rock/pop punk/emo/alternative music (“what are you even listening to mate it sounds like some sort of bizarre satanic incantation” “it’s my chemical romance james how have you never heard of them” “idk maybe i prefer music without screaming”) and all of his photos would be black and white with maybe a little splash of color and there would be a ton of gryffindor pride stuff too
peter: peter’s tumblr would be a very weird mixture of the other three marauders because he’s always felt inferior to the other three and really wants to impress them but if there’s one thing pete can do that the others can’t it’s cook and his mum has the best recipes on the planet and so he always posts them which turns out to be a huge mistake because remus and sirius accidentally blow up their kitchen trying to make the famous pettigrew snickerdoodles and james and lily try to help fix it but the four of them end up in an all-out battle that destroys the rest if the flat and peter has to come and save them and it takes seven different memory charms to keep remus and sirius from getting evicted but it was definitely worth the trouble
lily: lily would find a way to post a bunch of muggle music and she’d have pictures of little flowers and animals and such but she’d also have terrible summaries of famous muggle books (“to summarize hamlet: a prince’s dad’s ghost tells him to kill his uncle and by the end of the play literally everyone’s dead except for like two people” “what the heck kind of book is this lily” “it’s a muggle classic sirius” “okayyy”) and she’d post different potions she invented or thought were interesting and descriptions of all the pranks she’s played because no way is james going to one-up her on this SHE is the master pranker of the group “don’t you dare argue about this with me james” “i think we ought to have a prank war then” “bring it on dork” (she won of course)
Do you ever think about a long term girlfriend of the past and feel a little... Idk? My relationship of four years ended not too long ago and I still have the thoughts from time to time. Just wondering how you felt and dealt with that sort of stuff.
Everyone does. And even in times of emotional weakness you think back on them and wonder what if, or in most cases “I want me another go at that!”. That’s how things like drunk texts and stuff happen :P
BUT, if you think for just a second, you’ll remember there was a reason for the breakup. And the rose colored glasses are just that. The two of you weren’t compatible, and one (or both) of you saw that. And so you split.
The best thing to do is remember them, remember the good times, remember the mistakes he or she or you made, and move on.
Nothing good ever came from looking backwards, while moving forward.
I saw a post earlier talking about gems with Ichigo and Rukia and I was thinking about it, esp in terms of Steven Universe bc I like it a lot
like the post went into detail and stuff I didn’t really get and maybe I’m just too simple minded but I always imagined Rukia as a moonstone
and Ichigo as obsidian
and when they fuse you get something like.. snowflake obsidian
personally I always felt Rukia’s should be white and Ichigo’s should be black.. esp with Ichigo like he shouldn’t have an orange gem just bc of his hair I think that’s ridiculous and like.. black is kind of his color you know? idk it makes sense to me..
Edit: on another note byakuya’s gem is 100% a diamond that is not up for debate
Finally I can sit down and write down all the stuff I watched through the winter. I’ll just do a quick rundown of the stuff that finished this winter (pmuch everything except for AssClass). The Spring season is trickling in very slowly, so I’ll post my final watchlist once it’s all out (for the time being JoJo and HeroAca have been great, UshiTora was nice and everything else’s been so-so).
The series will be ranked from worst to best >:D
through the season I found myself with even less time to watch anime than
usual, which ended with having to drop a lot of stuff that I was honestly
watching out of inertia:
watched all the way to episode… 5? When it became evident we were going into
contrived one-on-one battles because of some very convenient rule of I don’t
even care I couldn’t bring myself to keep watching. Funnily, ep 5 was the
strongest the show had since the first one, and it still didn’t hook me.
Consensus seems to be I didn’t miss out on much.
Gate: God episode 6 was soooo stupid. I heard that lots of people died in ep 7?
I don’t know, even the unintentionally hilarious narrator gimmick became
tiresome at some point. I think I saw a bit of the start of one episode? 7? 8?
When the boss dude had a flashback of his meeting Santa Claus or something?
Dunno, it was just so dumb and not funny enough to warrant the braincells I was
wasting on it. I’ll never forget the guy who put ice on his ramen tho, thanks show.
episodes got slightly nicer than the first ones, with Haruta being just a
little less pushy, something that really bothered me, but at the end of the
day, the whole thing was really damn boring. I think I made it to episode 6.
(same, girl whose name I forgot, same)
Why did I
watch this whole thing through?
didn’t drop these shows, even though at the end of the day all I have left is
this sense of hours of my life I’ll never get back
no Tsuki: At the time of writing this sentence I haven’t watched the final
episode, but I can bet all my Haikyuu Nendoroids that it won’t make up for the
23 weeks I waited for this show to get better. Now I’ve watched ep 24 (was it the ending?) I’m not even sure if that was the ending and I don’t care. God it was worse than I expected. Ugh, I hope the Honoo no Kokuin movie comes out soon. Hopefully we’l all forget this stupid waste of time ever existed
W: This show started okaaay-ish and it had some really interesting concepts…
and then it crapped the bed, jumped the shark, shot itself in the eye, whatever
you wanna call it. From the introduction of the “king of a nondescript African
country in disarray” and the Easter Island nonsense everything went down the
drain really fast. Like man, the whole thing turned out incredibly stupid, and
that’s not even considering the asspull last minute villain. And it also left
all the interesting concepts to die in a jungle of fake science gibberish.
Shows that didn’t change my life, but didn’t waste it either
CGI is hoooorrrible. It started fairly weak too, but with the introduction of
Satou and the reveal that Kei is actually a much grayer protagonist than it
first appeared, I’m kind of intrigued to see where it’ll go. Not blown away by
it, but my general impression improved quite a bit after Kei escaped the
government facility. Would watch a second season if Netflix does more. Episode 12 was greaaat it kept me on edge the whole time. The last one hasn’t aired yet but my thoughts on this are pretty cemented
was okay? It wasn’t as distasteful as it could’ve been? Went some interesting
places in terms of grief and coping? The overall look of the production was
very beautiful? I just don’t know if the character work it did was worth the 12
weeks, apart from Manato’s death episode I didn’t feel much of an emotional
connection to the characters. Also Ranta is a sleazeball that never repents for
the bullshit he does (just a little, at the end). Yume’s voice was very cute
tho. But Haruhiro was so boring as a character. Idk, wouldn’t watch a S2 tbh.
It’s weird because I think I like it more than Ajin (partly because colorful
stuff>>> bleak stuff), but the story didn’t hook me? My feelings for
this are very scattered
Stride: Look this show was fine and fun but the character development was
overall terrible and it had some seriously bad shoehorned plot points (namely
the main trio’s conveniently forgotten childhood promise and that Nana was
somehow dubbed the Princess of Stride because her father was the King? Every
time the announcer mentioned the King-Princess thing it felt so dumb and
artificial, like no real sports announcer would say that). The finale was
complete bullshit, I feel robbed of real resolutions in the characters’ relationships.
But I did like the overall style, and I did come to like the characters, so I
have more positive feelings for it than the other two.
(the gay, the gay of it all)
This makes me sad. I love the story of Fairy Tail. With a few hiccups here and
there, the manga is overall fantastic and extremely fun. And the first year’s
worth of episodes for this second anime series was pretty fine, they did a good
job with the GMG and the Dragon invasion. And then I don’t know what happened,
but between the muddy colors, the sluggish pace, the atrocious animation, the
endless recaps and the people-talking-really-slowly to fill-in time, even my
favorite moments in an overall lackluster arc (Tartaros) and an arc I love
(Zero) were overall extremely lacking in weight and emotion all I felt was
disappointment and boredom. I’m very sad this show became like this and I
really hope however long it takes them to do a new series, they’ll give it to
someone who can love the material and give it the treatment it deserves.
Not the shining
stars of the season, but fun, entertaining shows that I enjoyed a lot.
Gundam: Tekketsu Orphans: This show started
really strong and I overall like it, but when we reached the finale I realized
I had no idea of how things had reached this point or why. There’s a S2 coming
in Fall, and I’ll gladly watch it because I’m still deeply intrigued by the
really unhealthy relationship Mika and Orga have, but I have no idea of where
the story’s gonna go at this point. This feels like a more competently executed
Aldnoah (not that it’s high praise, that show was a mess). It did a good job
engaging me in the character relationships. As a Person who hates the original
Gundam ™ I was pleasantly surprised by how enjoyable this was.
Shirayukihime: Definitely a step-down from the first half. The most remarkable
thing about this season was the development for Obi and Raj, both characters becoming my favorites (interestingly both began as antagonists) and I really
enjoyed every moment they spent on screen (Obi wearing formal clothing is so
important to me now). I did feel that both Shirayuki and Zen became stuck and
didn’t really evolve much, not in their relationship and not as individuals, so
that was disappointing. Also, the kidnapping arc was very dumb. But the overall
experience is pleasant and happy, I can’t really bring myself to hate the show.
Would watch an S3 (that will never happen) if they promised me we’ll see
Mitsuhide doing something about his very poorly hidden feelings for Kiki.
ga Inai Machi: This show peaked around episode 7-8 with Kayo’s story, achieving
some true brilliance in how it dealt with abuse and how victims cope with it,
and then it never managed to reach those heights once Kayo was written out of
the show. The identity of the killer was disappointingly obvious, I wish they
had been more overt about it or that they’d presented two equally viable
suspects so it could be an actual surprise when the truth was revealed.
Satoru’s final confrontation with the killer was laughably ridiculous and I
can’t help feeling annoyed by the fact that the masterpiece hidden in Satoru’s
soul and repressed by his regret was a generic teenage magicky craptastic
looking thing. I’m sure he made more people happy delivering pizzas. Still a
worthwhile watch, mostly for Kayo’s stuff.
Classroom would go here but it’s only halfway through. It’s a really good show
though, y’all should check it out! FukuJun’s doing a brilliant job as
Korosensei too. Not a fan of the “taming” of Irina (I’ve never liked how she’s
treated by this show in general) or the whole Shinigami storyline, but it’s
overall doing a good job.
This was a damned good show! Its flavor is somewhat lighter than Fujiko Mine
but more adult than Cagliostro, like a healthy middle ground. The last two
episodes weren’t that great, but the rest of the show was very fun and unique,
with a fantastic look, unique storylines and tricks –the midseason finale was
brilliant!- and it did a great job integrating the new characters: Nix and
Rebecca. I’m very glad I decided to give this one a shot.
Best of the
should be self-explanatory)
Ketsu: I’m honestly kind of amazed by how they wrapped everything up. These
last three cours improved progressively and I was very happy with how
everything was tied up. I adore Shinra and Celty, so their beautiful climactic
reunion at the end (especially Shinra admitting to his own selfishness and
risking his life for their love) made me so happy. I am however disappointed
that Anri didn’t actually do anything or that no one actually punched Mikado
for being a dick. Rokujo was a great character and I would’ve liked to see him
in the epilogue too. My husbando Shizuo was his perfect beautiful self all the
way through and I love him. I’ll miss this series. I think I’ll rewatch it
actually, from season 1. It’s definitely one of my all-time favorites, even
after all these years.
I have mixed feelings on this. I think the adaptation was absolutely beautiful
in every sense, and we all know how much I adore these characters. However, I
do absolutely feel they could’ve padded the games a little more (give Johzenji,
Wakunan and Datekou more screentime) and leave the Seijoh match for Season 3.
That way they wouldn’t be running out of material and we’d get more Oikawa and
Iwa-chan (why did I have to develop such a huge crush on Iwa-chan just as his
part in the series ended ;A;). I understand why they did it this way –to set
the contrast between this finale and the ending of S1- but I still wish they’d
made it a little longer and I can’t help feeling a little bitter about it. It’s
still a show I love and that I can’t wait to get more of, and certainly my
favorite sports anime up to date.
Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Hands down the best show of the season and a strong
contender for anime of the year, I can’t imagine there’ll be much stuff to
rival it. It’s such a unique and adult story with so many nuances, beautiful
direction, well-rounded characters and that subtly deals with issues of
sexuality and gender roles and just… ugh. That scene in the graveyard murdered
me. I think it’s a must see if you’re able to look past the unconventional
theme. I’m so happy to know that it’ll have a second season to cover the rest
of the manga.
(we could’ve had it aaaaalllll)
As an overall I think the season was weak, a lot of forgetable, mediocre shows and nothing “so bad it’s good” to make up for it. But bcause Showa was such a strong and unique offering, -the kind of show you only see a handful ot times every decade it makes the whole season worthwhile and I don’t feel like three months of nothingness (hello spring 2015)
