So, when Reimi tells Rohan and Koichi her story she ends up
showing them the wounds on her back. These wounds are deemed so gory that they
don’t get shown in Jojo, a series where we have seen a guy’s head get ripped
off and pulled into a canteen amongst other things. Pretty much everyone takes this
as an indication of the exceptional brutality of her death, and by extension,
Kira. This is important to me because Killer Queen’s bombs, while deadly and
merciless, lack the visceral impact of blood and guts. Since we never see Reimi’s
back, the brutality never really sets in all the way.
Now, my theory revolves around the fact that later on Reimi
also states that she can recognize when someone has died by Kira’s hands even
though she never saw his face and had no idea who he was/is. She says she can
do this because their ghosts all share the signature wound. We see Shigechi and
Rohan’s ghosts as they are blowing up into chunks of dust as they go off to “heaven”,
so we know what that looks like. Where this gets interesting/scary is that
Reimi says this manner of wound is Kira’s signature and that all these people
bare the same wound and she does on her back, and that that is how she knows it’s
him in the first place.
Now, until I gave this more thought, I just wrote this off
as her being confused or an unclear translation, because an explosion is
clearly different from a stabbing, and all of the victims would still be
clearly connected because they’re all blowing up and thus recognizable.
However, eventually I DID give it more thought, and asked “Could she be saying that Kira
brutalized her so badly with a knife (likely a kitchen knife from her own
kitchen), that it looked as though a bomb had gone off in her spine?”
Under the assumption that this is, in fact, what’s being hinted at, I
looked up images of blast injuries on google (don’t do this if you have a weak
stomach btw), and suffice to say, that if 18 year old entirely human and stand-less Kira Yoshikage did, in fact,
inflict knife wounds that resemble the type of damage done by a bomb, it
makes him 100% the most legitimately terrifying villain up to this point. Like,
he actually, legitimately scares me.
Furthermore, if this is the case, it makes perfect sense
that Araki didn’t draw Reimi’s back because:
That would have been A LOT of hard work
It would easily be the most gory/terrifying
thing so far.

Request: HEYY, I just LOVE your acc so
freaking much!!! AND could u do a Snart x Reader fanfic aaand the reader has
nyctophobia (fear of the dark/night) and Snart at the the beginning not taking
it seriously but after that he protects the reader from everything, he cares
about the reader? Love ya thank u so much hug from Hungaryyy x
When you first told Leonard you had a serious fear of the
dark, he laughed it off. He’d sometimes switch the lights off just to mess with
you, or wake you up in the middle of the night just to make you worry. He would
even grab you in the night just to terrify you. You almost immediately
regretted the decision to tell him.
You had told him within the first few days of knowing him,
since you worked closely with him and he did his ‘work’ at night, you often had
to go out with him then, and you got the creeps every time you did.
“No, wait… That’s not right.” You giggled. “Let me think about it for a minute.”
You were never great at telling jokes - snarky remarks, maybe - but not jokes and you had botched this one to hell. There was no recovering… So, of course it was a surprise when Oliver threw his head back and laughed regardless. You barely had time to sort the damn thing out before you looked over to find him smiling like a fool.
Oliver had made himself comfortable enough in your small apartment; sitting on the middle of the living room rug with a cup of now cold coffee next to his leg. He had dragged himself there in the middle of the night, still suited up and banging on your door like a lost drunk. It didn’t take too much investigation to determine that the Green Arrow had a rough night. He didn’t go into detail at the time - had only given you bits and pieces… All you knew was that a kid had been involved and based on the disconsolate tension Oliver brought with him, it hadn’t ended well. So, through blood, sweat and tears you stayed up all night. He was stuck in the dark and you were going to light the way even if it broke you.
Whatever happened, happened… Neither of you could change that now and Oliver needed a friend. He needed you.
“What’s so funny?”
“Nothing.” He shrugged. “Just… Thanks for getting me through the night.”
“Yeah. No problem.” You smiled, watching him shift to recline on his elbows… “Want me to start that joke again?”
The silence between them is deafening, interrupted only by the hum of the traffic outside, and the soft click-clunk of the plastic cups Rosie is playing with on the floor beside them. It is the first time they have been alone together, since Sherlock’s birthday. It’s only been two days, but it feels huge, important, like there is a precarious bridge stretched out before them both that they need to at least attempt to traverse.
In Ancient Rome, Centurion John is hired to act as personal, round-the-clock bodyguard for the mad emperor’s hedonistic, philosopher brother (that would be Sherlock). Sparks fly, John peers through a partly-open door, arrows fly, and Sherlock learns the very apt name given to John’s 22-inch sword.
No, his *actual* sword. He’s a Roman solider, remember. What you were thinking would be…just, no.
It’s been thirteen months since Mary shot Sherlock and John finds he’s still pissed off about it. Sherlock had thought everything was settled: John and Mary, domestic bliss. But when John turns up at Baker Street with suitcases, the world’s only consulting detective might not be prepared for the consequences. A new case. Some old scores to settle. Certain danger. Concertos, waltzes, and whisky.
What would have happened if Sherlock had returned a few months, a few days earlier? What if it had been nothing but a few hours? What if he and John had been alone? Things could have been so different…
Arrow delivers another strong episode with “Tribute.” We are on a roll! As I’ve
said, I enjoy Oliver most when he’s up against the ropes and punching his way
out. In “Tribute” Oliver is fighting against three heavy weights: Samandra, William and Anatoly. He’s not the only one backed into a corner though. John Diggle is too.
Arrow is moving to Thursday nights at 9 pm next fall for their
sixth season. Reactions varied from chill to… not. Do I think this
is a bad thing? No, I don’t.
Allow me to preface this post by saying this: I’ve been talking
about Arrow’s ratings and The CW network since I started this blog.
Long before there was ever a ratings drop, my opinion was that The CW
has a different business model than the other networks. If you cannot
accept that The CW’s profitability is not based on live ratings,
then this is not the blog for you. You don’t have to take my word
for it. Stephen Amell confirmed it at HVFF Chicago. Mark
Pedowitz has spoken about it. I’ve done my research
on this folks. They are structured differently than the Big Four.
It’s just facts. (X)
Yes, I was surprised by the move mostly because I had grown
complacent about Arrow on Wednesday night. Wasn’t expecting it. I am no expert, but I’m happy to share my thoughts. I’ll talk about what I like about the move. Then we’ll shift to concerns.
This is a while back, but in Mystery Hero I ended up as Hanzo and we were attacking in Tmple of Anubis. Was messing around by the door and I saw an enemy Widowmaker get in position on the arc facing the spawnroom. So for the heck of it, I crouched down and aimed at her. The moment the door opened, I let the arrow loose and I got a headshot on her xD I'm not good as Hanzo(or snipers in general) so I laughed pretty hard at that! Was probably my best Hanzo game too since I stayed as him quite long
