I noticed in some posts, sometimes you typed (or wrote?) "orz". What does it mean?
HAHAHAHA you guys wouldn’t believe, Tumblr showed me this:
Apparently, this is an emoticon I use more often than I thought. orz (<- oh look, there it is!)
ANYWAY, it is a pictogram of a little person, curled in on themselves. The o is the head, the r the arms, and z is folded over legs. Both orz and its close cousin OTL show various states of despair, but slightly different types. After discussing with a friend, we’ve concluded that it’s less the amount of despair that’s different between the two, but rather the expression of it. In “orz” the person is sorta curled/collapsed in on themselves, whereas “OTL” is much more dramatic, sorta slamming their hand on the ground. Like so:
It’s bad too to tell you how tired I am — so maddeningly tired — but maybe I have to be tired to wake up — I’ve had enough — I feel bored to distraction with people and things — I’m ready for my own company again and lots of it too.
It’s been more than a day and I’m still laughing at how the Squire pact in TOZ-X is now just a friendship bracelet while Mikleo and Sorey apparently have each other on telepathic emergency speed dial LOL.
So, this episode is composed of a mixture of 3 types of facial expressions: determination, worry, and a sprinkle of other things. Every single one that fell into the last category made it into this set. I think that goes to show how ridiculously determined Yuuri was during this first half of the episode, and then how worried/anxious he was during the second. You pretty much end up just wanting to hug him through the entire episode. As a couple final notes: I’m really glad I was able to get Yuuri’s 3A in a set because it’s beautiful, and Yuuri’s updated expression in the last gif tears my heart out every time I see it. Enjoy!
