the shy shy shy Goblin and her bold bride 😆

seunrig  asked:

I'm kidding 😂 but srsly..your opinion on shunji or kang do young. who do you think is the better villain and why??

oHHHH MOMO this is a good question.

I think it’s also a difficult question, because there isn’t an objective answer?

for me I think Shunji just eeks out. I think part of it is the simple fact that w Gaksital we get 28 episodes to develop his story/journey to villainy while Kang Do Young got… less than half of that.

but I think what makes Shunji a good villain is the way that the story handles the character arc. it’s a subtle descent into monstrousness, and Shunji is aware of the trajectory but also unwilling to turn the ship? it’s made all the more painful that… idk while Shunji is becoming a villain we see these tiny glimpses of his humanity. we remember what he was like before. but then the show follows those scenes with a quick reminder of how ruthless he’s become. where did the sweet kindergarten teacher go? etc.

I liked that the show was able to balance moments of insight, of sympathy, while also not pulling the punches in terms of his villainy. there was no redemption for Shunji, and to be frank he didn’t deserve it. but somehow through everything he did there was still a pang in my heart of what could have been. 

the show poses the question of whether the story could have been different. if Shunji wasn’t born into the era, would he have turned out that way? is he a villain of circumstances just as Kang To became a hero of those same circumstances? they’re always presented as different sides of the same coin. 

my feelings on the char are complicated, but the show gives us a lot of meat to chew on re: his char and it’s part of what made the show click for me.

Don't fucking distort, and make up reasons to hate on Orihime that you love Aizen for
  • Orihime: (always prioritizes others over her own safety and repeatedly saves her friend's lives)
  • Bleach Fans: She is such a selfish, awful person! I hate her and I wish she'd get killed off!
  • Aizen: (Sees his subordinates as nothing more than disposable pawns to be toyed with and tries to kill them when he feels that they are of no more use to him)
  • Bleach Fans: He's my favorite character!
  • Orihime: (Doesn't try to break out of Tesra's grasp when he threatens to destroy her shun-shun rika and take away her ability to protect everybody she cares about and the six fairies who have become like family to her)
  • Bleach Fans: All she cares about are her stupid hairclips! She values them over her friends!
  • Aizen: (Used scores of innocent people as hogyaku fodder, and got a bunch of his fellow shinigami hollowfied and exiled)
  • Bleach fans: Lol you're good.
  • Orihime: (Loves Ichigo long before he ever got powers, liked all the things about him that others found off-putting, and wore an outfit to make him happy)
  • Bleach Fans: GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM HIM YOU STALKER! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU? YOU HAVE AN UNHEALTHY OBSESSION WITH ICHIGO AND IT'S GROSS!
  • Aizen: (Literally stalked Ichigo from the moment he was brought into an existence, monitored him his whole life, and groomed him into an opponent he wanted to beat for shits and giggles, going as far as to try to kill his friends to piss him off)
  • Bleach Fans: That's not off-putting or disturbing at all!
  • Orihime: (Goes to a land full of monsters as a prisoner to save Ichigo and her other friends and doesn't expect them to save her because she doubts her worth due to low self-esteem)
  • Bleach Fans: She is insensitive, rude, and inconsiderate! How delusional and self-absorbed can she get, thinking that her friends wouldn't worry about her? Doesn't she have any idea what she put them through?
  • Aizen: (Traumatizes his lieutenant by faking his death, causing her to attack a captain and get arrested)
  • Bleach Fans: *crickets*
  • Orihime: (chooses to say goodbye to Ichigo at night and confesses her love for him in a beautiful, heartfelt speech, considers kissing him, but can't bring herself to do it. Leaves behind a goodbye note)
  • Bleach Fans: GTF AWAY FROM HIM YOU CREEPY RAPIST! YOU LEFT THAT NOTE THERE BECAUSE YOU WANTED HIM TO SAVE YOU AND PLAY INTO YOUR LITTLE DAMSEL IN DISTRESS GAME! YOU LEFT BEHIND A NOTE BECAUSE YOU WANTED HIM TO DO ALL THAT STUFF FOR YOU LIKE SNEAK INTO HUECO MUNDO AGAINST THE SS'S ORDERS AND THAT'S BAAAD!
  • Aizen: (Gives his lieutenant a note telling her to kill her best friend in order to keep him from uncovering his plans, despite the fact that he knows it could damage her already-deteriorating mental health even further)
  • Bleach Fandom: He's a beautiful cinnamon roll too good for this world!
  • Orihime: (Has an emotional breakdown after being submitted to torture, abuse, stress, and the trauma of seeing one friend get killed and another mutilated by an enemy who she can't even put a scratch on. Begs for Ichigo to save her from certain death)
  • Bleach Fans: She's a manipulative bitch who just wants to use Ichigo for her own means. She sees him as nothing more than a tool in her elaborate fantasies.
  • Aizen: (Spent years making his lieutenant completely dependent on him, then stabbed her because he was narcissistic enough to think that she couldn't survive without him)
  • Bleach Fans: (Literally never freaking address this at all)
