Sakumoto Art in Drawing Shiritori (Anishi 19.11.2016)
So Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is into the drawing version of the linking word game, Shiritori, and here’s what OTP got up to. Such serious play, these two.
To start, this was Jun’s first go…
… which led to Sho’s first attempt…
… which Keio Chipmunk erased himself and replaced with what looked like a box (hako)…
… causing Kyary-san to draw a kotatsu, but which she erased when Sho-san added details to his drawing…
He decided that adding a stick figure might help.
See the pride he had that he could deliver such an ‘accurate’ drawing…
… though a few more details were again ‘enhanced’ for clarity.
Then OTP decided to kill this shipper’s brain cells with their second attempts, down to one minute on the clock.
Sho-san’s indecisiveness was obviously rubbing off…
… though Sho-kun was quick to catch on to whatever it was that our youngest had drawn.
In deciphering the drawings after time up, we learn that Jun’s…
‘sou-PU’ was originally connected to ‘PU-oh’ (Pooh) Bear…
… till Sho worried that it would be mistaken for a big-eyed bear…
… so he changed it to PO-ol.
It was the second attempt that made my OTP kokoro squeal a little with…
Jun’s fuE (flute) and Sho’s connection of Entotsu (chimney). While everyone was trying to figure out what Jun-kun had drawn, Sho happily claimed that he had no problem figuring it out. That was why he was so quick to fill in his square.
Delusional shipper in me chooses to imagine this… (^_^)
Ahhh~ it’s a fabulous time to ship this revival? pair.
What she means:
do you know how hard it must've been for Killian Jones to stop drinking and gambling in his pre-navy days? to claw out of the hole he was in? a man with so little self-worth would've literally drank himself to death and squandered every penny he had. a man with such supposed weakness in the face of darkness would've backslid right into drinking even after joining the navy, just as alcoholism affects jobs. a man with as much self-loathing as he had would've self-destructed and embraced every demon. but he didn't. he got his fucking act together during his time as Lt. Jones because his brother was his world and his light and his inspiration and his love and the source of hope for him. and then, that light DIED––due to machinations by the system that fucked them over in the first place. it wasn't just understandable for bright and starry-eyed Lt. Jones to fall so far after his brother's death. it was inevitable.
I’m gonna share my thoughts as usual.
LET’S GET STARTED.
-Meiko, for once, is not blushing because she’s on an awkward situation.
-Hikari is FOURTEEN and has more boobies than me.
-Sora looks extremely cute and her bikini is cute as hell and I just wanna scream and cover her up because she doesn’t deserve this. None of them do.
-Mimi is the only one posing for the picture - which is funny af.
-The Christmas tree is so pretty, let that sink in.
-All of the girls are /somewhat/ covered. Except Mimi. What does Toei have against Mimi?
-The fact that Hikari’s top is the smallest pisses me off.
-I hope they don’t catch a cold :(
-I want the translations ASAP.
This is not teasing touches. This is not some scene in the onsen where they both happen to be naked. This is not Victor getting physically close with Yuuri just to ‘mess with him’ or to ‘help him find Eros’. This is not a comedy routine or some throwaway comment that could be interpreted a thousand different ways.
This is a serious, emotionally charged scene integral to the plot. This is a conversation whose purpose is to give the audience a glimpse of the inner workings of the minds of these characters. This is Victor, admitting to Yuuri that not only is he okay with dating guys, he’s okay with dating Yuuri. These are canon words coming from Victor’s mouth.
Victor said he’s willing to be Yuuri’s boyfriend. I am not making any leaps of logic or forming headcanons- Victor just canonically admitted that he is attracted to guys and is completely okay with dating them.
This is representation.
Do you have any idea how huge this is???? This is Victor, a main character, portrayed as talented and beautiful and someone people idolize and aspire to be like. He also happens to be gay. He doesn’t embody any over stereotypes and he isn’t defined solely by his sexuality- He’s just Victor.This is a massive step forward, not just in sports anime but for anime in general. This is what we were hoping for, and we’re not even at the halfway point of the series yet.
