Yana’s favorite tropes

Today I feel like adressing one of the most popular topics in the Kuroshitsuji fandom, the BL subtext. The male on male fanservice has always been prominent in the series, has stirred up controversy, attracted many. annoyed some, and even spawned a funny rumor that the manga was supposed to be a yaoi one. The last statement, which has aready been proved false, has it’s roots in the author’s past as a yaoi artist and the shota BL works that she published under her pen name Yanao Rock. For this post I decided to read one of those works, Glamorous Lip, a one-shot consisting in six different short stories, and take note of the similarities with Yana’s current and most prominent work, Kuroshitsuji

First I want to note that with these observations I am not trying to prove a point or encourage any particular view of the manga, I simply thought that getting to know the author’s tastes might help to make future predictions on the current storyline.

Hi there, I wanted to get your opinion on this:

As a fan of Sailor Moon for so long, do you also feel like you’d do anything for a new story, instead of rehashing the same story arcs?  I know I do.  I’m dying for a new story line, something about Crystal Tokyo coming, Neo Queen Serenity ascending to the throne, or just a new massive baddie they need to fight.  Or skip all of that and just get to the year 3,000!  Just give me something new!

How about you?

I would’ve loved the same, actually when Crystal was announced I was hoping that it would be a brand new story because I already knew what goes down in the manga and I didn’t need to see that again.

A prequel to the first arc would’ve been awesome and epic, all the shit that went down before the storm and led to the events in the first season of Sailor Moon.

The destruction of Silver Millennium.

The development of Princess Serenity and King Endymion relationship.

Queen Beryl’s background story and her downward spiral to evil.

Queen Beryl killing Princess Serenity and King Endymion.

(In the classic anime, Princess Serenity is killed by Queen Beryl whereas in Crystal/manga she kills herself)

The sacrifice of Queen Serenity so that Princess Serenity and Silver Millennium could have a second chance.

Watching all of this building up and the actual outcome would’ve been majestic.

Also I picture the last episode’s ending (after all this drama) being the beginning of the first ever Sailor Moon episode and that would’ve been awesome.

A sis can dream.

PS: This hypothetical season I just made up would even have room for your beloved shittenou x senshi romance so I’m sure everyone would be happy with this season lmao.

@SomeoneAtTOEI hire me please.

Antoinette is so hilariously sassy in this manga and I love it.

In this scene, it’s part of her journey through Austria to France, and her brother Joseph accompanied her for a little while.

They’ve watching a performance, and he says she shouldn’t be looking so sad when everyone’s here to congratulate her. Then he starts waxing poetic about how he knows she’s a little nervous, she’ll be in a country she doesn’t know, meeting a spouse she doesn’t know. He tells her a marriage of state doesn’t have to mean a marriage without love, telling her to think of their own parents, or of him.

He says admittedly their parents were childhood friends and already knew their feelings, but he and his first wife Isabella apparently fell in love right when they first met and that fateful meetings like that do exist.

Antoinette’s response?

Seems to me you were a lot less happy with your second wife.

Is2g one of my favourite things of all time...

…in HQ is when a new “mysterious” character is actually revealed to be

a) a complete dork

b) a little shit, salty af

c) BOTH

see what I mean?

no really SEE WHAT I MEAN??

IT’S!! RIGHT THEREE

I’M NOT GONNA SAY IT TWICE!

SHIT MATERIAL THROUGH THE ROOOFFF!! (I love him already can you tell?)

there’s a reason (WHOLE FUCKING TEAMS OF THEMM ACTUALLY) why I love this manga so so much

and oh yeah

SAVE BROCCOLI NR.2 2K16 KKBYE

I still haven’t processed that plot twist. It has definitely been one of the best in the series so far (in my humble opinion).

I was already intrigued by Miya Atsumu and I loved his hair and I was already in a bit of a panic mode because there are too many beautiful boys in this manga and I can’t handle all of them, and what did Furudate do? 

“Because it seems like you don’t have enough pretty boys in your life, I’m going to take this Interesting Nice Hair Guy that has called your attention and give you ANOTHER ONE, JUST LIKE HIM. Have fun~”

anonymous asked:

Yokozawa and An-chan were ok, Haitani was acceptable, but Nao? Wtf is happening to this manga?? It's so cliche and the story is repeating itself over and over, can there please be a decent plot? It can't be that anywone falls in love with one of takano or ritsu... it is starting to piss me off and i used to love this manga so much.. please sensei stop this...

It almost feels like it was done for shock value? Like they set Nao up as a character you expect to be a big brother sort of friend character (like that scene where he mentions his brother that died in an accident then says he’s reminded of him when he sees Ritsu’s situation??) . He was similar to Yokozawa already, but this is literally the same thing all over again.

Also, it always pisses me off when Nakamura just kinda always makes her “uke” characters wrong in what they think is going on. Like it can be hard to recognize someone’s feelings for you when they’re not actively trying to make you understand them! My guess is Nao didn’t want to force Ritsu into a relationship like some rebound after the Saga, because he understood how much he was affected by the relationship. He was acting as a good friend, as he was when they met up again. Now that’s gonna be screwed up because he just happened to walk in at the wrong moment, and I’m just disappointed. When he was introduced I was so happy, because yay!!!! A connection to Ritsu’s past and a friend who wasn’t at one point interested in him!! (There’s Saeki but she’s barely brought up lol) It just turns into pretty much belittling Ritsu and turning it on him like “oh you should just listen to me” “you’re too naive” “you’re slow” and I’m tired of him getting treated like that by the people who want to be closest to him like??? Nakamura pls

ninashikkaku  asked:

I don't know if someone has ever asked you this, but what is your favourite horror manga overall? If someone asked this already, what is your all-time favourite manga?

Hard to say, but probably Cat Eyed Boy http://amzn.to/2prkfuP! I like dark, depressive horror as much as anyone, but I love monster kid culture in general and Cat Eyed Boy captures that feeling for me. Hakaba Kitaro is excellent too. Unfortunately it has never been translated (Gegege no Kitaro has however), but for students of Japanese out there, it’s a pretty easy read.

The Bug Boy by Hideshi Hino is also a gem. It’s completely disgusting, but the gleeful misanthropy of it is pretty funny. It’s about a boy who dies, turns in to a caterpillar and gets a real kick out of the fact that he’s dead and doesn’t have to care about anything anymore.

I hope you like it @cant-bokutouch-this ;) Prize drawing for my raffle which the winner requested! I never drew Mira before so I hope I did a good job at her haha 

And I also want to thank you guys for THE 400 FOLLOWERS OMFG I CAN’T BELIEVE I REACHED MY MILESTONE ALREADY AND I WAS SO HAPPY AND SHOCKED WHEN I WOKE UP TO THAT TODAY. I CAN’T BELIEVE IT ALSJDHFS THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH AND I AM SO GLAD YOU GUYS HAVE STUCK AROUND WITH ME FOR SO LONG AND ENJOY MY WORK AND I HOPE THAT ALL MY NEW FOLLOWERS ENJOY WHAT IS YET TO COME!! Now onward to reach my next milestone! 

Thank you <3

My analysis/thoughts about "THE LAST NARUTO THE MOVIE"

Objectives: 


- to prove that the movie does not contradict the manga (and it is actually a canon material)
- to explain Naruto’s feelings (that he DID NOT fall for Hinata in the movie,rather, he REALIZED his romanticfeelings for her all along)


Note: Actually, I did not plan to write an essay about this. But, it makes me upset to see some Naruto fans (esp. some NH fans) to think that the movie is filler and it regress NH development. This essay has around 10, 000 words.


Sorry for typo/grammar errors.


First let’s talk about how legit the movie is.
1. Kishimoto himself said that the movie is part of the actual storyline.

This is the statement of Kishi:


“The latest film is a love story. It will depict what happened between the 699th and 700th manga episodes. I designed the characters and helped make the story.”


I emphasized “helped” because I think, some misunderstood this word. Others might say. “Oh, its filler because Kishi just helped in the script.” But you are wrong. Remember, Kishi’s position in the movie is “script supervisor.”

Actually, I work in a production company/TV station. Script supervisor is like the head writer a.k.a the leader of the creative group. The writers will write (of course) the script (like dialogue etc., more on the details) but the script supervisor/head writer ACTUALLY gives the whole plot or story flow. What I’m trying to say is… writers will just comply on what the head writer wants. After the writers, finished the script… The head writer will edit it on how he wants it.

In a TV interview, kishi himself said that he was HEAVILY involved in the movie. That he edit the script the way he wanted.

Head writer, writers actually do the story, NOT the director/production company/animators

For those who don’t know, the director’s main job is to handle the aesthetics of the film (like camera angle, animations etc). In other words, they not really heavily involve on the script. There role is to make the script materialized or how to convey the story in a creative way. (ex. the director of the last said that he wants to make the genjutsu scene look like a puzzle). His subordinates are the animators.

SP suggested the romance theme because they felt it was what the series is lacking. (THEY just suggest the theme of the movie, not forced NH to be together. that’s different)

Kishi earlier said that he did not plan to make a story on how NH got together. Some might misinterpret this. Anti-ending people might say… “oh kishi is forced to do NH pairing,” but NO. He just did not plan to elaborate on HOW they got together (or how/when they officially got together). But NH paring..It was plan all along!

KISHI NEVER STATED THAT HE DID NOT WANT TO MAKE A ROMANCE BETWEEN NARUTO AND HINATA.

That’s why, even without the last. The ending of Naruto is still acceptable /obvious.

Actually, it’s the first time that Kishi said that a movie is part of the canon timeline. Hence, this movie is very special.

I remember a chapter in Naruto, when Edo Minato and the other Kages were fading… Naruto tried to restate what Kushina said to him. The last thing that Naruto has’nt done yet is the ‘love aspect’

Well, guess what…. The Last is the answer.

Even the advertisers called this film Ch. 699.5. And more importantly, Kishi made a comic called “after the last”. If this movie is not canon, why would he bother to do a canon comic?

The movie, NEVER, contradict the manga. Cause the supervisor is KISHI himself. The movie actually confirmed a lot of things that is vague in the manga. Like hamura’s character and Naruto’s feeling for Sakura (actually, for me, this one is pretty obvious in the manga) this movie CONFIRMED that Naruto’s feelings for Sakura were SHALLOW. Just ask yourself, why Naruto “liked” Sakura (aside from being beautiful?)

You might say, “ohhhhh but Naruto and Hinata were OCC in the movie.”

The movie just shows the side of Naruto that we did not know: the romance. It’s normal to sulk after heartbreak. Of course, it’s the first time we saw naruto like this because hinata is his first love.

As for Hinata, you might say “ohhh she’s shy/timid/dont have confidence again. It regress her dev in the manga.” Not actually. Remember, it’s a diff situation. Naruto has a lot of admires. And actually, its Hinata’s first time to pursuit a relationship with naruto (i will not detail this. This is already explained in remedialaction’s essay, which I really love)

Many anti-ending/NH complained on how NH’s relationship is forced, underdeveloped, came out of nowhere etc. And the last proves that NH moments in the manga were platonic.

Well, I disagree. I bet these people forgot the essence of the NH development in the manga. Remember, the movie is based on the manga. Hence, all the NH moments were taken account in the movie. This is just logic: if NH moments were not present in the manga, then the last would not exist at all.

And remember, Kishi made a movie guidebook about NH moments. So it’s all legit. Kishi laid out the foundation of their relationship from the very beginning/

NH moments in the manga were not platonic. (remember, the title of the NH dev. in the guidebook is Uzumaki “LOVE” scroll)

Do you think holding hands, seeing through eyes, transforming to 6 (almost 9) tails were not romantic? If you said yes, then you are missing the context.

I remember what my history professor in college said, “always look at the context.” that’s the only way to understand/analyze a moment in our history.

Let’s discuss the confession. Naruto turned 6-tails after Pain attacked Hinata. Hence, Hinata is the trigger of the transformation (as what naruto confirmed in chapter. 490)

People might say anyone would trigger the transformation. But really, do you think he will transform when pain attack Sai, Shikamaru, Ino, Chouji, Neji, Lee, tenten? Even sakura? I bet NO.

Remember, when Gaara died, he just turned 2 tails. When Jiraiya and Kakashi died, he did not even transform. Antis may argue… “Maybe he transformed because of the shock that his friend attacked right in front of him” or “the seal is weakening”

But ask yourself why Hinata of all the people???? Why she triggered the worst feelings that Naruto ever felt. Even the seal is weak, it still needs enough force/level of rage for Naruto to transform

Remember? Context. The situation clearly shows that Naruto have strong connection (love) for Hinata. Pain even said that love breeds hate. No, he’s not talking about Hinata’s feeling… He is talking about Naruto. Pain assumed that the girl that he attacked is special to Naruto. That’s why he said “do you hate me now?”

Let’s go to the “in your eyes” moment… Actually, this is one of my favorite moments. It’s just so romantic that both of them can see the truth in their eyes.

Antis said Naruto only felt Hinata’s feelings because of the kyuubi mode. But remember, he can only feel malice in this mode… Not read others thoughts. If he can feel negative feelings, then he might also know the suspicion of Neji and the rest.

Also, the movie guidebook also confirms this moment. “Naruto reads feeling of weakness reflected in Hinata’s eyes…. The two were connected so strongly that they could communicate in their eyes”

Aside from Hinata, there is no other person Naruto can read through eyes.

Also, look at the reaction of neji, shino at kiba after that moment. I bet they were all thinking “there is something fishy going on between these two”

In chapter 615, Naruto held Hinata’s hand. That only means one thing.
—————
So, does that mean that he loves Hinata all along? Yes. Naruto did all these romantic moments with Hinata subconsciously.
He’s just stupid or dense that’s why he did not know it is romantic love. And the last movie explained this (that he cannot distinguish the difference between love of ramen and loving a person).

One of the many complains in the movie is the pacing. For just a day or so… relationship between Naruto and Hinata changed. Let’s look closely.

Mission timeline:
Day 1: the team goes to a snowy place, goes to the genjutsu lake, toneri ask hinata’s hand, naruto became bashfull, naruto saw hinata knitting the scarf

Day 2: Naruto did not wear Kushina’s scarf. Naruto and Hinata flirting. Otsutski monument. Hinata request Naruto to leave her alone for a moment

Day 3: Hinata tries to stay away from naruto. In the night, naruto confessed. Then hinata goes to toneri.

Yes… Within 3 days… I want to focus on day 1 and 2. This is when Naruto know his own feelings

So quickly, he acted different towards Hinata. What reason? The answer is of course, love.

But is it possible to fall in love within days? The answer is NO. Cause love is not an instant thing.

Does that mean the relationship of Naruto and Hinata is forced in the movie? NO. Why? Because Naruto did not fall for Hinata in the movie. HE JUST REALIZED HE LOVES HER ALL ALONG

Remember, he did not know the meaning of loving someone until the genjutsu trap. This gave him a context of Hinata’s feelings. After that, he examined his own feeling. Actually, this is elaborated in the last light novel.

Thanks animecontinuum for the translation:

“So if that is a genjutsu… Then, what are those things I saw about Hinata? Were all those part of my memories? No, I don’t think those are just ordinary memories. It’s more like my dreams and memories were mixed together. And so about Hinata, does that mean that I also…” Naruto blushed involuntarily and for an instant, he looked at Hinata.

Clearly, the trap does not forced naruto to love hinata.

It just triggered something within Naruto’s heart.

Just think of it. When a person confessed to you. You would not fall for him/her instantly. Unless, you also have feelings for him/her all along.

And another thing… Why do you thing Sakura encourage Hinata in the first place. If she thinks that hinata will be just get rejected? (as what ugamyrain said before)

While Naruto was unconscious and Sakura’s healing him.. She said “you finally got it. Blockhead” (cause Naruto repeatedly said “Hinata”)

This only means one thing: Sakura know that Naruto love Hinata all along.

Sakura’s statement not only meant that naruto finally understand hinata’s feeling. Also, he understands HIS OWN FEELING. (Actually, the latter is more appropriate because of the context of the scene. Remember, Naruto keep repeating Hinata’s name, before Sakura said he finally gets it)

When/how did naruto fall for hinata? Well it is in the manga. I already explained that.

Conclusion: the movie does not contradict the manga. It actually supported our theory before: Naruto has feelings for Hinata all along.


Note: sorry for the long post. Some ideas in this essay came from earlier NH essays  @rieriebee etc). I credit them for that.

anonymous asked:

what manga series are you reading right now?

two series i’m hyped on right now are Tower of God (my fave series because of the lore behind it… story line is similiar to op in how everything ties together plot wise) and Noblesse but these series are considered webtoons/korean manwha… and for manga  these are the series i am currently up to date with and that i follow weekly/monthly 

Berserk (cult classic finally off hiatus) 

Onepunch-Man (you should know the hype behind this already)

Mob Psycho 100 (i love my son Mob)

Boku No Hero Academia (got early naruto vibes except has a lot more potential and the author does a really well with including other characters and doesn’t just focus on the protag which is refreshing… definitely not your typical shounen)  

The Promised Neverland (best thriller/suspense manga in the game rn making waves)

Seven Deadly Sins (this series lit as fuck… kinda like fairy tale but it’s actually good and niggas be dying… none of that friendship bs saving niggas like in ft)

Ajin (good read)

Attack on Titan (the author is a trash ass human being lmao but not gon’ front aot is pretty lit story wise and i’ve already invested time into reading it lol but yeah it’s lit)

Jagaaaaaan (i’m currently reading this with a friend and it’s so dope lol the art style is great and the plot is interesting… stories with anti heroes are always lit) 

Tokyo Ghoul:re (if you liked tokyo ghoul you should def give it a shot because it’s a follow up that continues from where it leaves off in tokyo ghoul… and yeah the streets turned that boy to a man)

Boruto (alot of niggas shitting on this series which is understandable with how naruto ended but it’s not so bad honestly, kishi and co milking the fuck outta of naruto but it’s pretty cool so far)

Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 8: Jojolion (i lub it)

Hiatus x Hiatus (it’s probably never coming back……. :// but i’m feigning for this shit like a motherfucking crack addict)

and that’s it… feel free to send me manga recs if you bout it!

solid reasons for why you should watch Classmates;

1. literally first full, all night, openly gay themed Japanese animation that doesn’t misrepresent the gay community, rely on quick, stereotypical or ENTIRELY MADE UP solutions of problems of character design and plot design, is not overly centered on the character’s sexuality, but treats them as real, plausible people in a delicate stage of their life

2. do yourself a favor 

anonymous asked:

every single time i think i'm over bleach and am happily shipping IR, a new novel trying to fix the ending pops up and f***s up my mood. ugh why won't bleach die already.

Aww anon *hugs you* cheer up, sorry for the late reply but I didn’t (still don’t) have much time today. I know it’s upsetting but we should already know that everything about Ble/ach now is not going to please us because it’s not the Bl/each we knew and loved anymore, everything that comes up that adress the ending or tries to fix it, doesn’t change the fact that is tied with that shit ending so it’s just like seeing how everything fell down and the characters we loved ended up being something they weren’t in the manga for 15 years. I know it’s hard to keep seeing how everyone keeps faking like the 15 years of the manga didn’t happen and everything they are doing now don’t sound like a big fat lie but really we already survived the ending a few shitty things from some novel done just to try and fix the shit ending is not going to do much aside from being a passing nusiance.

Just try to stay away from it all, if it makes you feel like old wounds are reopening and just enjoy all the rest we have. I always say Bl/each is dead to me and it is, i don’t go around searching for new info because there is no desire to see how they keep say lies, or see how the characters I love are doing as a failure but of course some things ends up on my dash  but I try to not be affected by it all, otherwise it’s only going to make me hate the things I loved even more and I don’t want that. I’ll keep loving what we got for 15 years, one chapter and the excuses they try to write for it, is not going to change the draws and the words that were already written, that show how different things were going.

anonymous asked:

I love Ereri so much if it won't be canon I'll cry I don't know what to do 😣

Hey anon, I feel you! I’m dying for it to become canon. But think about how much official art we have. Also the fact that Ereri is the most popular ship in the franchise. All the hints in the manga + Boy love Cds that came out in Japan and were voiced by the voice actors + The novel 2000 years of love created by Isayama himself (why would he create this if he doesn’t like the ship in the first place?)

Edit: Nope, it appears it’s not real actually. Though a lot of people believed it was. Whatever you know what we have so much more proofs so I don’t fucking care 😤 I mean, looking at all this, aren’t they are canon already? Even if nothing will happen in the manga, I think it’s pretty obvious that in some ways they are already canon. ♥

SasuSaku Month 2015

Day 1 - Matchmaker 


Sarada Uchiha

First instance of shipping:

*Looks at her parents with glee and relief, because she can see how much they care for one another*.


Hagoromo Ótsutsuki

(SasuSaku shipper since chapter 693)

First instance of shipping:

“Because I’m hoping that this time around, it will be the hate that transforms into love. Hmm… or maybe I should say, I hope they could find and regain that lost love… Not only for Naruto himself, but for Sasuke too, a love different from the one he had for his mother.”


Kakashi Hatake

(SasuSaku shipper since chapter 675)

First instance of shipping:

“And Sakura, I bet your feelings for Sasuke have changed from what they were back then. You still love him, but on a totally different level. He tried to take your life, yet you still care for him. You won’t cut him off no matter what, and you think it is your duty to save him from the darkness. That’s the kind, gentle girl you are.”


Naruto Uzumaki

(SasuSaku shipper since chapter 172)

First instance of shipping:

Tsunade: “Heh… Naruto’s more sensitive than he looks…”


Masashi Kishimoto

Kishimoto: “Sakura practically, someway or another, regards Sasuke wholeheartedly, I think.”

Reporter’s question: “Though anime has been showing, but the manga is already over, with the endgame is 2 canon couples : NaruHina and SasuSaku. The love-triangle has been decided. So have you guys ever predicted that the story would go that way?”

Takeuchi: “Yes…It seems like that. For a long time ago, honestly, in the first meeting with Kishi-sensei, I was told about this ending.”

Nakamura: “It was when anime started being showed, I think it was the second meeting?”

Sugiyama: “At that time, Kishi-sensei already said that the endgame couple would be SasuSaku.”

Tell us a bit about yourself
I’m just a simple 18 year old loaf trying to survive through college while majoring in zoo science and minoring in art! I’m an avid fan of fantasy creatures and monsters of all sorts as well as video games, pizza rolls, and ice cream. I also own 4 feathered demons that like to scream every day which I quite enjoy.

1. When did you get into the fandom and how did you stumble upon it?     I’d say it was about 2-3 years ago when I first saw the Original post on my dash and immediately fell in love with the art and the characters. I decided to check out the blog and officially became apart of the fandom when I attended my first stream shortly after! I was reaalllyyy shy at first and didn’t talk much at all until I posted the first piece of fanart I’ve ever made for the fandom, and I was completely overwhelmed with the positive responses I got on it.

2. Who are your favorite characters/pairings?
I love Natan as much as the next person, although Michaelie is probably the top ship I have at the moment. As for my favorite character, I love anything and everything to do with Zadkiel.

3. Favorite moment in the comic?
Well right now my favorite moment is an upcoming spoiler so I can’t really say LOL. Although the moment towards the end of the Run arc with Raphael’s “WHAT.” face will forever hold a special place in my heart.

4. What is your biggest inspiration as far as your art (and/or) writing goes?
Honestly pretty much everyone in the fandom who I’ve met has played a huge impact on my inspiration and motivation. If it weren’t for Orange’s amazing comic I probably would not have gotten to where I am today since creating fanart really started my internal drive to improve on my art and not give up!

5. What would you say is your favorite piece that you’ve done so far?
Hmmm, well a lot of my SaM art is months old since I’ve been taking a bit of a break with drawing, so I’d have to say overall my favorite pieces overall would be the most recent ones in my tag since there have been months of improvement. I guess if I had to pick a SaM picture it would have to be this one of Pax mainly because the wings were sooooo much fun to do (warning: SUPER OLD!!)

6. What would you say is one of your favorite things to draw/write?
Monsters are probably some of the most fun and creative things to draw in my opinion. Every design is unique in it’s own way since you don’t have to conform to one look or standard, all you gotta do is slap a bunch of teeth and eyes on some half horse-half dog body and there ya go! Wings, hair, horns, and faces are also some of my favorite bits to draw as well.

7. What do you think influences your art style?
I can’t really say I have a consistent style since my art postings are few and far between so I’m always improving and changing how I draw. I’ve been told my art does tend to be shiny so I guess that will always be an aspect of my art that won’t change LOL.

8. What are some of your hobbies you enjoy?
Video games of course, music, and binging shows every now and then to name a few.
I’ve really been lacking with drawing lately but I’m trying my best to get back in the groove!

9. Before joining SaM, what was a fandom you were part of and are there any fandoms you’re into outside of SaM?
Honestly I really wasn’t involved in many fandoms at all before SaM. I was really into homestuck from when I was 13-15 but SaM has been the first fandom I’ve become really invested in. Nowadays I’m EXTREMELY into Overwatch and a few shows here and there including Voltron and Game of Thrones. I’m also super obsessed with the manga The Ancient Magus Bride which seems to have only a very small fanbase on Tumblr.

Oh, and Here It Comes is another comic in development by Orangeplum that I love and I’d highly recommend checking it out if you haven’t already!!

10. Is there anything else you’d like the fandom to know about you or anything you’d like to say to the fandom as a whole?
I’d say mainly if you’re new and shy like I was just don’t to not be afraid to start talking to people in the streams or in the fandom in general. I made a lot of friends just by interacting and attending the streams so I quickly started to talk to the same people who I saw regularly. And if you’re an artist, writer, or cosplayer who’s nervous about posting content, I can assure you there are TONS of people in the fandom who will appreciate every second of effort you put into your works. I can say for a fact my first fanart was horrendous compared to how I draw now, so no one will judge you for skill but instead love you for the content you provide!
