ok a bit of my book that’s not even published on wattpad yet that i just wrote two seconds ago
…I glanced up sharply when I felt someone else arriving. (i skip a bit of the chapter here) Alecto burst between columns, hurriedly trying to straighten her peplos. “I’m so sorry I’m late! I got caught up enacting divine vengeance via pain and eventual death and didn’t want to get blood all over so I…” She stopped suddenly…
The screencaps above don’t really let you in on just how intense this film is going to be. Studio 4°C’s animation is the best you’ll ever see. And I mean the best. The story follows two orphans named Black and White who form a street gang against other orphans and gangs alike. Throw in some police officers (some of whom are crooked), the Yakuza, a new crime figure named Snake, and some mystical beast named simply the Minotaur and the whole film spirals out of hand pretty quickly.
Clearly adapted from a much longer manga, Tekkonkinkreet never really bothers to slow down, Ariasu never stops long enough to let you catch up and the film may not make the most sense that first time through - but oh lord is the journey back into Treasure Town ever worth it.
In my opinion - Tekkonkinkreet is the most underrated film out there.
I’m superior in many ways. I heal quickly and I’ll likely live half
again as long as the average human. My biotic abilities are also very
advanced, for a human. Add to that some of the best training and
education money can buy and, well, it’s pretty impressive really.”
I don’t know if this fan is on tumblr but if you are, let me just say you have my highest respect for getting Patrick to take a dorky picture with you, and then making him hold that dorky picture while he takes a dorkier picture with you, and then making him hold the dorkier picture while you take yet another dorkier picture with him. I only have these two but I like to imagine it continued. I’d really like to open the m&g account one day and see Patrick holding a picture of himself holding the picture of himself holding the picture…
