I LOVE THE NEW OMAKE AND ITS UNEXPECTED KACCHAKO VIBES
Like the way Bakugou turns around and is ready to beat the shit out of whoever is behind him
And is shook when he sees it’s Uraraka (he still swears at her cuz that’s just who he is, but still)
^^ Also the fact that Uraraka knows Bakugou’s looking for Midoriya without him having to say so
AND THE FACT THAT SHE CAN SENSE HIS FUCKING BAKURAGE AURA
(I guess it’s pretty hard to miss but SHHHH LET ME HAVE MY MOMENT)
Bakugou can’t hurt her with his stank attitude:
SHE AIN’T GOING ANYWHERE Y’ALL
AND SHE CALLS HIM COOL:
(Note that the speech bubbles have a black background, which usually happens in manga when those words are important to someone.)
AND I CAN’T REMEMBER ANYONE ELSE STRAIGHT UP TELLING BAKUGOU TO HIS FACE THAT THEY THINK HE’S COOL (It’s probably happened before like with Kirishima or somebody but I seriously can’t remember it happening).
SHE UNDERSTANDS HIM
AND HER GENUINE, CARING EYES
AND HIS FACE AS SHE’S TALKING TO HIM
And after the whole thing’s over, she’s all like,
And even though he’s perpetually an angry shit, her words still made Bakugou calm down:
In a culture where children get to choose their own names, newborns are given “baby names” to be used only temporarily. But one child decides to keep their baby name as they grow older, despite everyone thinking it’s weird, and the fact that the name doesn’t suit an adult at all.
guys, i’ve never liked lars. i always thought he was grouchy and mean and a conformist who was unnecessarily cruel to both Sadie and Steven.
I seriously didn’t like him.
And SU once again, completely throws me off guard by….
Ok, so…in a lot of cartoons, we have villains.
We have bullies.
People you just aren’t supposed t like.
People who oppose the protagonist, who act as stand ins for the people children have to grow up and face one day.
These people are represented in simple ways for children to undersstand, and are summarily dealt with in the manner that the cartoon wants to teach chilren how to deal with them.
In some shows, this means being mean back.
Making a fool out of someone who said harsh things to you.
But one of the many things I love about Steven Universe is just how human it feels.
Human meaning….the human flaws, the feelings that accompany these imperfections, and how to deal with them.
We’ve seen Amethyst and Pearl and Steven struggle with their own self images and their ability to forgive themselves for “imperfections” outside of their own control.
Amethyst felt like she came out “wrong.” Pearl was a servant, a slave really, who was “weak” and “made to please” not fight. And Steven of course has been struggling with his identity in relation to his mother and her mantle.
They may not be human, but Steven Universe has always dealt with all of its characters in very human ways, such as that lovely song “Here Comes a Thought.”
Amidst the fascinating lore and the goofy characters and filler episodes about Beach City, there’s just this core… steven universe feeling, like an aesthetic, that just promotes this sense of tranquility, of quiet introspection and self contemplation. Only by understanding yourself and considering your own feelings, not letting them rot away at your insides until you’re hateful and poisonous and just miserable because you’re suffering but can’t admit it…will you find strength.
Ah, there I go again, over analyzing a kids’ show.
this kind of thing is really soppy, but i can’t help it.
I didn’t like Lars , if I’m honest.
I just thought he was mean.
But seeing him admit that he’s just scared, I remembered that he’s just a kid.
He’s growing up.
And I remembered that what makes this show so great is that it can take a character I didn’t like…and ask me to show him a little compassion.
“Ok, I have chores and cooking to do today… The new map that’s gonna be revealed is probably the Widowmaker castle’s ‘official’ announcement, I bet the short’s gonna be about Pharah, shouldn’t get my hopes up, I’ll just wait and see what was revealed late-”
yousef is gonna be so god damn happy when he meets isak and sees how much he loves even and how he’s always there for him because yousef loves even and he definitely feels like he failed him and knowing even has someone is definitely gonna be a huge relief for him
