Which villain has the silliest outfit, and the villain with the silliest power, in Sentai history? And do you think that in earlier series, these silly villains are some kind of experiments (as producers have no idea what to do), while in later series they are mainly comic relieves?
Thanks for the question!
Also thank you for asking about the divide between the earliest shows and the later ones. I really do feel like the early shows should be given a bit of slack for having smaller budgets and limited resources (most of the Tsuburaya series notwithstanding because of their experienced staff who cut their teeth on Toho’s kaiju films). Sure, a lot of the monsters from shows like the early episodes of Kamen Rider:
Or the original Kikaider:
Or heck, look at just about any of the monsters from P Productions’ Spectreman!
They are incredibly silly and cheap looking but these were new productions companies using limited resources to produce the best things they could and what they lacked in budgets and sometimes talent, they made up for in imagination. I can forgive a lot of shoddy design work in the early shows because of just how much fun and creativity is on display with what they did with that they had.
You can actually see the quality of monsters improve over the course of the early 1970s so that by the time we get to 1975, Kamen Rider had monsters like this:
These display a lot more technical skill and higher budgets, allowing the ideas of the monster makers to more easily translate from paper to suits.
Himitsu Sentai Goranger’s monsters of the week are sometimes intentionally silly but at the same time well designed. This was a more kid-friendly series after all following the parental backlash that got the previous year’s Kamen Rider Amazon removed from the air. Still, even for something less serious it had it’s share of REALLY weird villains. Such as:
and YoYo Mask
It’s really hard to take these kinds of villains seriously. However, we are still early enough in the history of the franchise that they are forgivable, if still EXTREMELY goofy.
There will also be no monsters from a surrealist comedy like Gekisou Sentai Carranger or a straight up parody like Hikounin Sentai Akibaranger discussed here. When the show isn’t taking itself seriously, there’s no way the monsters should be.
However, when dealing with a more serious series like 1991′s Choujin Sentai Jetman, some of the more humorous monsters seem to come out of left field and smack you across the face. A perfect example is the God of Ramen a.k.a. Noodle Dimension from episode 10.
That’s silly and downright hilarious, especially considering all of his powers and his weakness are directly connected to him being a cup of ramen noodles. He can use his noodly appendages to attack, hold and drawn people in. He tosses exploding shrimp bombs and uses fish cake disks like throwing stars. His weakness is running out of hot water. He is entirely thematically designed around the concept of instant noodles and it’s frankly GLORIOUS!
As for silly powers, it’s really hard to beat Bara Printer from 1995′s Chouriki Sentai Ohranger.
He had the ability to make anyone fall in love with anything he scans, including a woman falling in love with her refrigerator:
And a schoolgirl wanting to get more up close and personal with her copy machine:
That’s a pretty goofy power. Sure, these days we have monsters that make you fat from eating their extremely caloric food and monsters that steal your birthdays but those are from slightly more light-hearted series. Jetman and Ohranger were intended to be more serious and these episodes and monsters really stand out, especially in Ohranger which had such a dark and serious start before events derailed it.
So, even though they are obvious choices, those are my picks for silliest looking monster and silliest powers for a monster. There are others I could pick but these two spring instantly to mind.
Summary: An incredible amount of luck leads to an unforgettable experience on a video-chat website with a sexy stranger.
A/N: This was meant to be a one-shot, but there could potentially be another story or two popping up in the future to follow the same storyline. Don’t be afraid to let me know if you enjoy it :) Requests are open!
I have a dirty secret.
I’ve always been a sexual person. There’s no denying it. And recently I’ve developed a little bit of a habit. It started off as kind of an exhibitionist dare to myself; I had been curious for a while about how exciting it might be for someone to watch me masturbate, so I took to the internet one day when I was feeling particularly brave.
Chatroullette was a website with which I was only slightly familiar. I had never used it before, but I knew the basic idea of how it worked. So, for the first time, I visited the site. I was greeted with a brief message about the website, as well as a few rules and warnings.
Before pressing the start button, I tilted my laptop screen down slightly so that my webcam would only catch my torso. Although I was excited (and a little nervous) about what I was about to do, I knew it would be a good idea to make sure that my face wasn’t captured. There was no way I wanted a masturbation video showing my face floating around on the internet. I also decided to leave the microphone turned on, but I told myself I would never speak out loud because I didn’t want anyone to recognize my voice. Those were my only rules: no face, no voice.
Were you the one asking the first question? :p Hmm, well, I think he really loves shower sex. He’ll leave his hair down of course, and in the beginning I think he’d just be silly with you and keep the mood light. He’d shake his wet hair in your face several times and tease you. Joke around a little. But the shower is a really heated surrounding, so I think he gets really passionate in there. And I think he likes taking you off guard, so after messing with you for a bit, and almost being childish, he’d look at you in that intense way that he does, take your face in his hands and kiss you until he has to take breath breaks. Then he’d run his hands up and down from your hips to your ribs. Tongue dipping deep, changing the mood completely. He wouldn’t be a suck face, he’d know how much tongue is too much. I think he loves the way wet skin feels like, and the way the water cascades down both of you, so for a while I think you’d feel his mouth all over you. Getting you ready. And in the shower I think he’d have you up against the wall. He has mentioned that he’s a bit of a show-off, and I definitely think you’d see that in his demeanor sexually too. I think he’d like to show how strong he is, so after building you up, he’d lift you up and tell you to wrap your legs around him. Then he’d sink you down on him, while having that tiny fucking lop-sided smirk that practically says that he knows how good he’s making you feel. He’d mostly take you slow and deep in the shower I think, so that your head feels weak on your neck, and your eyes start fluttering. And then he’d be a bit of a tease of course and pull out, smirking, almost loving the desperation in your face when he pushes only the tip back in. Not teasing for too long, ‘cause he’d wanna be close again and push all the way in until you’re gasping and he could feel your thighs shake. And he would be groaning against your neck and I think he’d love having you wrap your arms around him tightly so you could feel the wet glide of his toned stomach against yours. And I think he’d love it if you squeezed his dripping wet hair on the back of his neck tightly whilst kissing his neck and that long neck vein he has, which I think is very sensitive. Yup, there you go, that’s enough for now :p
Hi :) I've got a silly one for you (coming from severely sleep deprived human with not enough caffeine in her system) :p How do you like your coffee? Black/with milk/sweet/without sugar?
I prefer black with just a bit of milk, no sugar or syrups/flavours or sweetener added! Although, since we don’t have Starbucks here I did try the Gingerbread one, and some.. Peppermint.. thing, I think, in LA, and they were really good! Though I wouldn’t call it coffee, since I doubt that’s the main ingredient :P
a/n: Thank you everyone who has shown this fic love, I’m still floored by how many of you have messaged me saying you love it. I want to thank @timeless-love-story for including me in her fic recs so often, and @the-savior-and-the-pirate for the banner above! I’m still so grateful.
Special thanks to @ravenclawpianist who beta’s this piece. You’re so great. And I’m so thankful, Happy Almost Thanksgiving to everyone in the states(where I live).
Summary: After a tragic car accident took the lives of Liam and Elsa Jones, Killian found himself the heir to their family home, their business and their only child. Despite two large holes in his heart, he thinks he finally has things under control after a year of struggle and grief. In walks Emma Swan gradually filling both holes in the most unexpected way.
It’s a quarter after 2 when he gets to his building. He took the earliest flight because he needed to tell her in person, because he couldn’t breathe another moment without telling her the big news.
He creeps in quietly, leaving his suitcases at the door and locking it behind as slowly as he can. He makes his way to Ellie’s room first, he’s missed her immensely and one kiss on the cheek won’t wake her up.
He fights the panic when the bed is empty.
He’s been gone a few days and she did have a nightmare the night before. He can guess exactly where she is, and it only makes his heart grow larger when suspicions are confirmed. It’s a sight he’ll want sketched, or blown up and hung above the mantle.
It’s Emma, gorgeous Emma who sleeps easily with her hair fanned across her(his) pillow, and it’s Ellie, precious princess Ellie, who sleeps soundly with her stuffed reindeer held tight, but Emma’s hand held tighter. They’re facing each other and it does something to him, something incredible. He feels his eyes moisten, and the success in England yesterday can’t compare to the elation he has watching the two women he loves most sleep beside each other like the family he craves to be.
Because he thinks he really loves her, thinks maybe he always has. How else describe the way she occupies his every thought, how she paints herself into his visions of the future?
OMG, people still call Korra selfish? Really? She was NEVER selfish or irresponsible. She was hotheaded, that's different... But she's the most selfless Avatar we've seen so far. Even Aagn was more selfish than her (when it came to Air Nomad culture, which is understandable).
Considering how this fandom acts towards Korra… are you really surprised? =P
Korra’s most selfish moments took place all the way back in Book 1 when the double love triangle was still in full swing. She got a bit in-group-centric in Book 2 when her family was in jeopardy, but it was still easy to see where she was coming from.
Even so, her moments of selflessness are so extreme that calling her selfish seems to be just plain silly. She was literally willing to let herself get tortured to death to save both the Air Nation and the Avatar Cycle. That she got thrown into a terrible depressive state as a result isn’t selfish; it’s tragic.
The official name is called “Crystal Crisis on Utapau”. Basically, it’s an unfinished story arc from The Clone Wars in the form of story reels (just rough animation with no effects, it’s a bit silly to look at because of the wireframes -like - Anakin has a huge hole in his throat :P )
The amount of snark and banter between Anakin and Obi-Wan is ridiculously bountiful, to the point where it exceeds almost all of their interactions throughout the entire series (I kid you not). Also - they finally address the Ahsoka subject *GROSS SOBBING*
I’m really hoping they would finish animating these episodes some day. They really are a gift from the gods <3
“Watching Italians eat (especially men, I have to say) is a form of tourism the books don’t tell you about. They close their eyes, raise their eyebrows into accent marks, and make sounds of acute appreciation. It’s fairly sexy. Of course I don’t know how these men behave at home, if they help with the cooking or are vain and boorish and mistreat their wives. I realized Mediterranean cultures have their issues. Fine, don’t burst my bubble. I didn’t want to marry these guys, I just wanted to watch. (p. 247)”
Honestly, I find it creepy. The books don’t tell you about it because it’s usually rude to stare at someone like that. And while I’m glad we look sexy when we’re eating something, I have to wonder what kind of Italians the author saw. Most of us, meaning normal people, are very messy when it comes to eating and it’s often more gross with a bit of silly than sexy. But de gustibus non disputandum est, I guess.
The thing that bothers me the most is the comment on “how these men behave at home”. That’s really pretentious. As if the way you eat is related to how you behave (as if that matters). As if all Italian men are actually monsters and “Mediterranean cultures” (?) are the only ones who have issues. Yes, there’s sexism and domestic violence. There’s shitty men like that. In Italy as in many other countries. The author is Barbara Kingsolver, from the USA. So what if I wrote:
“Watching Americans eat (especially men, I have to say) is a form of tourism the books don’t tell you about. They close their eyes, raise their eyebrows into question marks, and make sounds of grave appreciation. It’s fairly sexy. Of course I don’t know how these men behave at home, if they help with the cooking or are vain and boorish and mistreat their wives. I realized American cultures have their issues. Fine, don’t burst my bubble. I didn’t want to marry these guys, I just wanted to watch.”
The USA has people being silly when they eat, sexism and domestic violence just as much as we do, but that sounds offensive, doesn’t it? That the first thing to be written about you is the depiction of a negative part of your society that’s totally unrelated to the subject of the book. If you’re writing a book about those kind of issues I would understand (you’d also be using stats and so on, though), but this is a book about food, adding a comment like that is anti-climatic and 99% of the times it’s there only to have the reader go all “OMG, Italians! *sigh*”. I’m not saying that you’re not allowed to be critic. I’m saying that you have to be knowledgeable before you’re critic. How can you be critic if you have no idea what you’re talking about? This is just used to add a sense of exoticism with a bonus stereotype about Italian men (obviously there’s gonna be shitty men in Italy, but also good men; again, same as with any country).
If the author really wants to know, my dad’s cooking is almost as good as my mom’s (his pizza is without a doubt superior). And he doesn’t mistreat her. Sometimes they cook together! Sorry to burst the bubble.
