is what i am referring to

bluestarsaber  asked:

When you are done with season 4 of race to edge what do you think are the pro and cons of the season and what do you hope for season 5?

Alright! I’ve just finished RTTE S4, and I would looooove to discuss pros and cons. I’ll make a list of some favorite small moments later, but here I will talk about big overarching pros and cons. Heads up to people that, because I’m talking pros and cons, I will get into both celebrations and constructive criticism. I’m not intending to rain on anyone’s parade by giving my comments on what I think could be better; I’m just being honest about the things that aren’t my favorite, and which I think are important to recognize… and I can at the same time recognize the show’s weaknesses and be a celebrating fan of the strengths.

Big Pros of RTTE S4

Book References Galore. I am always a fan of book references in the HTTYD show. This season contained a lot of instances which reminded me of the books. Whether or not that was intentional from the writers, it still gives book lovers a means of identify with elements they find familiar. In this season, we got book-like things including but not limited to:

  • A dragon which can only be birthed in the middle of a volcano.
  • Bat-like dragons.
  • Fishlegs calling Hiccup his best friend.
  • Snotlout feeling threatened by Hiccup’s role as a leader and trying to subvert it and become a great leader himself - be it king, or at least the leader over the other youths. Snotlout pretends to deliberate about killing Hiccup. He gets to be a little more antagonistic than usual when he’s trying so desperately to show that he’s great leader material, hoping so much that he won’t be overshadowed by the others. But in the end, he charges out and risks his life to save Hiccup.
  • An oft-used phrase in the book, “Easy peasy lemon squeezy,” came right out of Snotlout’s mouth.

Viggo and Ryker’s Relationship Splintering. I was hoping as early as S2 that the writers were setting up a fracturing between Ryker and Viggo. Ryker, after all, tells Heather that he listens to Viggo because they’re family. However, Viggo’s treatment of Ryker is poor. That’s good material for a set-up and character development… and we got it! We started to see hints of it in S3. 

It explodes in S4.

Ryker and Viggo, and their character developments, were probably my favorite thing about this season.

As early as the first episode, we see Ryker smiling when Viggo’s plans are thwarted. Ryker sticks by Viggo, but with increasingly-seen ill treatment on Viggo’s part, and increasingly irritated responses from Ryker, we at last get a split in Shell Shocked. Ryker has had enough of Viggo, and Viggo doesn’t have enough respect for Ryker for this to end well. Of course we still don’t know all the details about what all was planned and what was staged, but it seems Ryker did go rogue against his brother. It was nice to see this character, who was often overshadowed by Viggo, take charge and have this development.

Not to mention how both of the characters ended in Shell Shocked Part 2? Me likey. That was really cool. These appear to be both real deaths, and they are “fitting” for what the characters were. Ryker was a man of violence and strength; he got pulled underwater in the midst of a battle he waged himself. Viggo sought to gain profits and control dragons through the Dragon Eye; him diving to try to save the Dragon Eye shows his own motivations leading to his end.

It’s also very fitting that the Dragon Eye got destroyed. I was talking about how the Dragon Eye had to become inaccessible to both the dragon riders and the dragon hunters at some point in time. There’s no way for the story to get resolved otherwise. And it happened! I was happy to see the Dragon Eye finally return to the plot, and for us to see why it won’t be in Hiccup’s hands by the time of HTTYD 2.

Hiccstrid. I’m not an active Hiccstrid shipper myself (as you guys probably have heard me say many times, I almost never ship anything, and I prefer to focus on platonic and familial bonds), so I’m listing this one mostly for you guys, haha. XD I know that Hiccstrid shippers are probably going to be happy with what happened in this season! Flirtations, words of devotion, multiple kisses, all that happened. Haha, Snotlout even said “Hiccstrid” on screen! The slow boil toward their relationship has finally come to fruit, and it’s quite relieving to see.

I think what I appreciate the most was Hiccup supporting Astrid in Blindsided. The words of support he gave her were wonderful, thoughtful, deep, considerate. We have often seen throughout the franchise Astrid supporting Hiccup emotionally. This is a key moment in which we see Hiccup demonstrate great love, devotion, and support to Astrid in turn. The words he chose were nicely done. I appreciated that a lot.

Big Cons of RTTE S4

Recurring Plot Devices. I know the creators were excited about some of their planned plot twists, but the truth of the matter is that they tend to reuse the same plot devices repeatedly. 

Especially, one plot device they love is when Hiccup has to ally himself with the enemy. This has been done with:

  • Mildew in “We Are Family Part 2″
  • Alvin the Treacherous in “Cast Out Part 2″
  • Dagur the Deranged in “Enemy of My Enemy” and “Family on the Edge”
  • Krogan, soooooooort of, in “Midnight Scrum”
  • And now Viggo Grimborn in “Shell Shocked Part 2″

It is to note that the multiple redemption arcs - as with Alvin and Dagur - show repetition, too. I will say, though, it was nice for Viggo to not be completely redeemed. He still betrayed Hiccup in the end, and I appreciated that. But as far as the ally-with-the-enemy arc is concerned… that is starting to feel a little worn out, now.

Other recurring plot devices include Dragon’s Edge being attacked by dragon hunters; one of the youths being captured or kidnapped by the enemy; and, of course, a new dragon being first dangerous but then tamed.

Weak Character Motivations. It’s not that motivations are absent. It’s that they’re not neatly connected together or expounded upon to any realistic level. Character motivations move in sudden jerks forward rather than smooth progressions. Lots of the time the character motivations are explained weakly enough that they seem extremely unrealistic toward how a person would actually react in that situation.

Dagur goes from being an enemy with ASPD symptoms… to being a tentative ally with regrets… to being a genuinely good guy who cares deeply for his sister, the other riders, and endangered dragons. They do rudimentarily explain why he goes from one mental state to the next, but it never feels convincing. Part of that is that no one just magically drops an antisocial personality. Another part of it is that we don’t see a good, smooth progression from one phase to the next. The writers put in a little bit of transition material, but never enough.

Another example is Heather and her relationship with Dagur. There was not enough material for her switching from loathing Dagur… to being uncomfortable with his “death”… to being completely comfortable around him and welcome to deep physical touch. While we get the gist of why it happened, the way in which it is presented is very unconvincing and doesn’t at all feel like how people psychologically function. It’s pushing it at best. I’m not a fan of these sorts of things being misconstrued because it can have consequences for how we handle the dangerous and toxic people in our own lives.

We have other inconsistent character motivations on top of that, along with lots of weak plot devices arising out of this, but yeah. Character motivations are not as well progressed as they should be.

Sexism. This is nothing new to the show; it’s been present since Riders of Berk and onward. It’s been bothering me increasingly more with each new season released, likely because it hasn’t gotten better (the only thing that’s gotten better is no longer using “girl” as an insult). Especially for RTTE S3 and S4, I’ve felt distinctly uncomfortable with DreamWorks Dragons’ treatment of gender. It’s just come to a point that they should have fixed their mistakes by now, except they keep perpetuating.

Default gender in the show is undeniably male. The rule of how everything works in this show is “male until proven otherwise.” Seriously though. Essentially every single individual we meet is a man, be it human or dragon. Somehow every single new introduced dragon in the show is called a “he,” despite that being highly statistically unlikely. There are even several cases in which an obvious female has been called “he.” Given as we see no other Eruptodons around, it seems likely the egg had to have been laid by the dragon on the island. Sure, we can finagle around and give decently-conjured explanations for how this dragon could still be male, but by all accounts, it’s weird. We shouldn’t, in Defenders of the Wing Part 1, call THAT dragon a “he.” Even more clearly, Chicken is a chicken - a female member of that species, obviously so by the bird’s physical features. Tuffnut even hallucinates the chicken speaking to him in a female voice. Aaaaand yet both Stoick - and in this latest season, Tuffnut himself - call Chicken “he.” No. The chicken is female. That’s literally as bad as animating a cow with an udder and calling it a “he.” It’s that obviously female. How are we messing this up? Because the default gender of anything is male in this show.

Next, there are some stereotypes and unflattering tropes of women that sneak into the show. In so many movies, television shows, and novels, a woman is often only introduced when she has a romantic relationship with one of the male characters. While there are plenty of male characters who are not in a romantic relationship in media, it is much harder to find a woman who doesn’t at least flirt with a man and have that be a major point of her time on screen. It means that, as humorous as some people might find the Snotlout x Mala (Snala? Snotla? Malout???) dynamics, it’s not the most fun thing to see yet another female character’s role being heavily centered around whether or not she’s in a non-platonic relationship with someone.

Damselstrid happens a little too often for comfort. I know that many Hiccstrid shippers probably enjoy seeing Hiccup and Astrid caring for one another in precarious situations. I do admit that there were some good lines especially in Blindsided. Nevertheless, it is awkward to see the disparity between Astrid saving Hiccup versus Hiccup saving Astrid. This also have been around since forever, but it’s increasingly obvious with S3 and S4.

Astrid will save Hiccup in very short, quick minor moments in combat, such as by blocking enemy fire. But it’s never played up for drama. They’re gone before you know they’ve happened. In the one episode where Hiccup really needed saving because he’s kidnapped, it’s to note that the entire team (Stoick at the forefront) - not Astrid - save him. The other time Hiccup majorly needed saving because he was drowning… he was saved by a dragon. Astrid never gets the big save when Hiccup is most vulnerable.

By contrast, Astrid will constantly be in precarious positions in which she seems more desperate and in greater, longer danger. There have been two episodes dedicated entirely to Astrid being in a helpless situation and Hiccup needing to save her - Buffalord Soldier and Blindsided. Additionally, we can add several more instances of Astrid being in danger, like the very end of Shell Shocked Part 2, or when she’s about to burn up in Out of the Frying Pan. And when she is in these extremely vulnerable situations, we’ll often hear her murmur, “Hiccup.” It’s a suggestion that Hiccup is what is important and Hiccup is what’s going to save her. Even though Astrid is the best warrior of the youths, she is put into far more vulnerable positions than most of the other riders, and Hiccup almost always is the specific individual who gallantly saves her.

I could keep going about how there were also some outdated notions of gender sneaked in the show dialogue, too, but I’ll stop here. Essentially, sexism. It’s definitely in RTTE.

Season 5 Hopes

I don’t have too many thoughts on what I want for season 5 currently. Maybe ask me in a few months. At the moment, all I can think about is that we’re going to have to address that exploding volcano on Dragon’s Edge, and we’re definitely not done with Krogan.

In many ways, the end of S4 is the end of the big plot arc we got starting in S1. Seasons 1 through 4 are a unit, it looks like. It’s the story of Hiccup going against the dragon hunters. That ending has got to be the ending of the plot arc with Ryker and Viggo. So where season 5 turns? It’ll be a little bit of a new direction.

We’ve got some seeds planted with Krogan, I suppose, but really not much to work on. You could almost just completely end the show with S4. We got Hiccstrid together. Viggo, Dagur, and Ryker are no longer threats. The Dragon Eye is no longer around to investigate. It’s just that volcano blast and the fact the creators said there would be more episodes that means this is going to continue.

There’s a weird small part of me that wants Savage to come back. I don’t think they’ll do it, but I suddenly saw potential, and actually relished the small moment of Savage’s return. He had a wonderful return with great motivation. I’m assuming they’re just going to ride him off as inept, and this is the last we see of him. But there’s also a lot of potential for him to try to do something big. But I suspect we won’t see him, that it would detract from other plot stuff they would want to do, and so on and so forth.

So they’re likely going to keep sneaking toward Krogan and stuff with plot development? But how they’re going to do that without interfering with the plotline of HTTYD 2, I am not sure.

something-centric, and analysis

I do wanna stress that this is MY OPINION on the matter. 
Based solely on my 10 year long experience watching TV shows and being in fandoms. 

Next time I see someone misinterpret the concept of “something-centric” imma tell them about the tale of the NCIS/tiva fandom. Ironically, I am referring to an episode that was also number thirteen, 7x13 to be precise. 

DECEMBER 2009, these were the spoilers we were given:

They said it was tiva-centric.
The whole fandom was over the moon, fanfictions started appearing everywhere, people were out of their minds just imagining those two lovebirds in Paris being the perfect couple they were…

Do you know how much screentime Tony and Ziva got in Paris?
No more that 3 minutes. 

Yet, people didn’t complain, people didn’t call it “baiting”, we enjoyed what we got and cherished it, an don’t say it’s different because it was a straight couple, it’s exactly the same thing and I’m gonna tell you why. 

Sanvers got the screentime it got because sanvers is NOT the main focus of the show and it will never be, Alex is NOT the main character of the show. 

I ASSURE YOU that if she had ended up with Maxwell Lord instead of Maggie Sawyer she would have gotten the exact same treatment, simply because she is a side character and that’s how a show works. So to say that the episode was sanvers-centric is NOT to say that the ep. is going to be just about them. 

You don’t identify something as “centric” based solely on the screen time it gets, but based on the meaning and impact it carries.  

Let me ask you this, why did you start watching this show? 

Personally I started this summer, because Castle ended last year and I needed a new show to fill the void in my heart… I started watching SG having no idea about the move to CW, the rumors about Alex’s storyline, I was completely spoiler-free, and I liked the show simply because… I liked the fucking show.

Alex’s storyline was a more than welcomed added bonus, but it’s not at all why I started watching.

So I guess my question is: are you now watching this show ONLY because of sanvers, or because you are genuinely interested in it as a whole? Personally I like the whole show, and I didn’t mind at all giving some of the screen time to Winn for example, or even to Mon-El… he’s a legit DC character, like it or not he’s there, since he is there I’d rather see him grow as a character than not at all… but then again, I am not the one that spends her time finding ways of altering his name just to sound petty on the internet when I write it.  

I guess my point is, enjoy what you get. I learned this a while ago (december 2009 to be exact) and it has helped me live a happier life since then.

One last thing, some of you are complaining that the conversations between Alex and Maggie weren’t deep enough… I guess they could have been phrased a little better but they got the point across imo. 

Other than addressing a giant-ass problem during Maggie’s story of how she was outed, a problem that is going to make people watching the show think a little on how they treat their kids (even if just ONE parent stopped for a moment to consider what they would do if their kid came out as gay, and how would they react to it thanks to that scene and that story, it’s already a victory) the dialogue at the end was pretty meaningful too. 

“I was too busy nursing my old wounds that I forgot to look at the gorgeous woman in front of me, and consider her feelings. You deserved all of this […] and you deserve an amazing romance, with a woman who is absolutely crazy about you.”

“Don’t you hate all this?”

“Alex, you are the ONE woman who could make me like Valentine’s day.”

My mom was watching the scene with me, and speaking as someone that has never watched a single episode of SG before today, she found it pretty beautiful. The love that Maggie has for Alex has become more important than the pain she has suffered all those years ago… isn’t that what love is all about? For someone to make you a better person, to help you through your pain?

Of course, this is just my opinion, now you may want to retort with the same things that have been said over and over again on this website since march 3rd 2016, but before you do I ask to you consider that this show, while having an LGBT couple in it, and while being happy to support the LGBT fans, is aimed not only at the LGBT community, but at everyone. At people that may not know about all the problems and tropes the LGBT community has been plagued with. People that have no idea what we go through but that maybe are gonna start asking themselves some questions by watching this show. So to get those people interested you need to present them the problems in a way that will be easily understood by someone who has never put their minds to it, and that means keeping it simple, while still putting some “deepness” into it (sorry, I’ve bee writing for a while and my not-my-first-language-english vocabulary is stretching thin) for those who are watching with the eyes of someone that knows what’s at stake.

I hope that if someone read all this, then you understand my opinion, you don’t have to share it, but I’m glad you took the time to read it. 

PS. Could anyone please link me to the article or interview where someone from the cast and crew of Supergirl actually says the words “sanvers-centric”? 
I must have missed it, I’m not kidding I legit want to see it because I don’t remember reading it.

Your blog isn't "sfw" when you use kink language. A blog doesn't need actual porn and naked bodies to be inappropriate for people under 18. Saying you're sfw while exposing children to kink spaces and languages is disingenuous and harmful. You can run whatever kind of blog you want you should just reconsider labeling yourself sfw.

As far as I’m concerned I’m allowed to use whatever language I want. Since when are you the one to say what is sfw and not? If I say I am then I am. Literally nothing on my blog is harmful to minors. If youre referring to the term “little space” then you are very very wrong. Many communities use that term and if you were smart enough to read my faq it states that I use those terms but I am in no way shape or from in any kink communities. I never use tags related to kink? I fail to see how I am nsfw. Please elaborate. I would love to hear how misinformed you are.

What do you mean by crypto-fascist (referring to Plato in your previous post)? I don't know much about philosophy but what i am sure about is that he has nothing to do with fascism :^0

I wasn’t being 100% serious. It’s just that, if you read the Republic literally (which I don’t), he creates a society that is very regimented, militaristic and totalitarian. He appoints despotic leaders, bans music and stratifies society by genetic intelligence. 

jarlofzarl  asked:

Now both in and out of context on what Milo said regarding age of consent and sexual maturity in relation to age (specifically gay males) i cant agree fully and have little knowledge of the sort of gay culture he refers to where young men are often seen as boys even when theyre in their early 20's. Europe does have a very liberal view on sex/age and most countries range from 14-16 but the sexual debut of most people can go as low as 12, something i dont support

(Cont.) Still i am on board with the fact that a line needs to be drawn but that at the same time, Americas view on sexuality and maturity is almost too conversative for my taste, sometimes americans refer to 21 year olds as too young and as “children” and think its disgusting how a 25 year old could date a 19 year old(see age gap question from before) so on a final note i agree that it was poorly phrased but i still cant fully agree even after the true meaning was made clear by Milo

By no means do I think what Milo said even in the original DP or Joe Rogan episodes is right. I didn’t agree when he said it originally, but I don’t think it’s indicative of his support of pedophilia. He has made it clear in 2 posts and a video that it was his way, no matter how wrong, of dealing with his own experiences with abuse in the past. It’s really upsetting to me that someone like Milo, who has outed 3 pedophiles and has consistently shown his disgust with it could be so easily taken down by a 2 minute clip. 

And this isn’t indicative of anything regarding Milo, it’s entirely indicative of the laziness and gullibility of American and European people.

Hey there, ive been seeing a bunch of posts referring to the pewdiepie drama from you lately. I am not here to attack you, but just to remind you to at least watch what he has to say and not blindly agree to what the media has to say. We all know what the media does to twist words around.

Religious people have no home in your fandom, do they? I constantly feel ostracized by you fans for being Mormon. But I'm still a fan of yours. Where is my safe place within this fandom?

Considering I myself am religious, and have consciously made an effort to never make fun of a religion, I’m not sure what you might be referring to. It is possible to have a faith in a higher power and still be open to everyone and how they identify and/or live their life. As long as you, yourself, are open, accepting, willing to learn of other people’s experiences, and not judge others, I see no reason why others that follow me wouldn’t be just as accepting of you as well.

IMPORTANT note regarding Mitsurou Kubo’s Twitter

It seems that some fans are sending artwork/fanart by other people to Mitsurou Kubo via Twitter, and she is NOT comfortable with that. She just tweeted about that as in the picture below. You can find the exact translation after the picture.

“I’m happy if you send me pictures drawn by yourself. However, even if you send me pictures drawn by others, they did not draw them for them to be seen by me. Please be careful”.

“There are fanarts drawn to be seen by the creators of the anime, and fanarts that are NOT drawn for that purpose. I am not sure that I’m in the position to discuss in detail about the type of fanart I’m referring to, but in all cases, the feelings of the person who originally drew the picture must come before anything else.”

I think there is no need to further elaborate on what she is referring to, as it’s pretty obvious.

1) Please do NOT send her artworks/fanart/gifs drawn by other people or that you randomly found on the net.

2) If you wish to send her a picture, please only do it if you have drawn it yourself.

3) Please think carefully whether the picture you want to send her is appropriate or not. (I can only appeal to your common sense here…)

4) The same applies to questions. She cannot reply to fans via Twitter on delicate questions regarding the series, therefore please do not send her awkward questions or comments.

Please kindly share this post or at least her tweet…
Thank you in advance, and let’s try to be respectful of her wishes.

About Omegaverse

ALPHAS

·Alphas are the dominant or “masculine” ones in omegaverse

·They are generally large and at least slightly intimidating in appearance

·They possess what is commonly referred to as an “Alpha Voice” which is basically a very commanding tone that Omegas, and sometimes Betas, feel compelled to obey

·Alphas also have a “Croon” which is like a deep rumbling sound (basically a purr) that helps to calm or comfort their Omega or their pups

·"Ruts" are a biological thing that Alphas go through and during a rut they will be easily agitated and extremely horny because their body wants them to knot and breed

·A “Knot” is kind of like a bulb type thing in an Alpha’s penis that swells when they are aroused and keeps them locked inside their Omega during sex to increase chances of getting the Omega pregnant, this is called “Knotting”

·All Alphas are able to impregnate people, but only a female Alpha can get pregnant because male Alphas don’t have a womb

·Female Alphas are often described as having both a penis and a vagina or having a clitoris that extends into one when they are aroused so they can impregnate people

OMEGAS

·Omegas are the submissive or “feminine” ones of the dynamics

·They are generally small, maybe delicate, and feminine in appearance

·Omegas can use their pheromones to effect others, whether it be by calming their child or arousing their Alpha

·"Heats" are a biological thing that Omegas go through and during a heat an Omega will self lubricate (usually referred to as “Slick”) in order to prepare to take an Alphas knot

·Omegas are most fertile during heats and they crave an Alpha’s knot because their body is demanding for them to breed

·When an Omega is in heat is usually the best time for an Alpha to “Bond” with them

·"Bonding" is achieved by biting into a scent gland hard enough to draw blood and eventually scar, it ties two people together mentally, physically, and emotionally. Like, a really extreme marriage

·During heats, pregnancies or any other stressful times, an Omega will “Nest”

·"Nesting" is a process in which an Omega craves warmth and comfort so they will choose a small space, like a closet, and gather blankets, pillows, clothing, anything soft really and especially anything with their Alpha’s scent on it and build a nest to cuddle up in

·"Scenting" is the process of someone spreading their own unique scent onto things or people in an act of comfort or possession

·People in omegaverse usually have four “Scent Glands” two on the neck and one on each wrist. When the glands are stimulated their scent becomes more potent and sticks to whatever or whoever is closest

·Both male and female Omegas can get pregnant and while it is possible for a male Omega to get a female Omega pregnant, a female Omega can’t impregnate anyone

·"Mpreg" male pregnancy, the only males that can pregnant in omegaverse though are Omegas

BETAS

·Betas are basically like normal humans, in omegaverse they are below Alphas but still above Omegas

·Betas can have any kind of appearance, there isn’t really a set expectation for them

·They don’t go through ruts or heats but they can still bond

·They tend to mate with other Betas

·Betas usually have a better sense of smell than the other dynamics

·Like normal humans, male Betas cannot get pregnant and female Betas cannot impregnate anyone

Yuri On Ice -  as understood solely through other people’s tumblr posts

[I have never watched Yuri On Ice, so this is just what I’ve figured out:]

Yuri is a competitive figure skater, who is, I assume, on ice.  He would like to win a medal.  Also he fell in love with another figure skater for being good at skating.

Hot Blond - who I will mentally refer to as Winner McWinnerson, the Moon Moon of skating, because that is the only name I have managed to pick up for him - sees Yuri inexplicably pole dancing in a garden at night and falls in love with him, a la Cinderella, but with more pole dancing.

They… meet?  Further details are mysterious, but I am guessing they also skate together and I am informed they definitely kiss twice, probably, for a 30th of a second as captured by this series of still frames, appended all over tumblr.

The only other character of note is the confusingly named Yuri2 - a second, smaller, angrier Yuri.  He is coached by Hot Blond and is probably only metaphorically his son.  He is also probably not related to Yuri, but it’s hard to tell, and I am open to the possibility they they both just have dicks for parents.

Throughout the series the aforementioned skaters all compete a lot, except for Moon Moon, who is busy coaching and already owns all of the medals.  

(More notably, a bunch of real life ice skaters became fans of the show, and tweeted the heck out of it, which was adorable and also meant several macho sports websites were blanketed with gay anime screencaps, the best  of all possible outcomes.)

The series is won by Yuri2.  I don’t actually know that, but I am pretty sure Yuri doesn’t win, so I am filling in the blanks with the only other character I can remember.

In the final episode, Winner McWinnerson proposes to Yuri, but also says he will only marry him after he wins a gold medal, because Winner McWinenrson dates winners, okay?  They agree to compete against each other for Yuri’s hand in marriage, and I can only assume this means the second season will conclude triumphantly, with Yuri on an Olympic altar, marrying himself.

……..how’d I do?

以心伝心 (Ishin-denshin) roughly translates to “heart to heart understanding” but literally translates to “what the mind thinks, the heart transmits,”

Ishin-denshin (以心伝心) is a Japanese idiom which denotes a form of interpersonal communication through unspoken mutual understanding.

ishin-denshin refers to a passive form of shared understanding. Ishin-denshin is traditionally perceived by the Japanese as sincere, silent communication via the heart
