psycho logical

Alex underestimated Mother. Though he got killed in a very… yikes. Sort of way. He went completely crazy and needed to be stopped somehow. Nestor is a pretty cool guy and great actor tho. Enjoyed watching him. Let’s face it though. The finale reminds fans that this is a tragic love story between Mother and Son. That’s why it ended how it did. It started with Norman and Norma together and it had to end with them together. It can’t end any other way.

It is very tiring to explain to Rika haters how mental disorders work. Because from what I see, the only knowledge and experience a lot of them have w/ disorders stems from serial killers and psychos. Their logic is so ludicrious that it pains me to know that most MM fans are late teens and adults smh. Other than that, love your theories and discussions from various fandoms, keep up the good work. Don't let haters bring you down cause all they doin is making themselves look childish <3

Oh man , you should seen my reaction when I saw sooooo many others calling out not only the fandom but Cheritz. People changing there opinions because of the route. I wasn’t the only one!

Don’t Hold Back.

The attacker must be stopped. At once and completely. Just who he is, why he has chosen to be a criminal, his social background, his ideological or psycho­logical motivation, and the extent of injury he incurs as a result of his acts - these may all be considered at some future date. Now, your first concern is to stay alive. Let your attacker worry about his life. Don’t hold back. Strike no more after he is incapable of further action, but see that he is stopped.

Logically Paranoid Psychotic

You think I’m a paranoid psycho, but there IS logic behind it:

I’m paranoid about people looking in my windows, especially at night…..

Because I had a friend as a teen who peeped in my windows 3 times that I know about. One of those times the neighbors called the cops, but his shoes didn’t match the prints, so either he was there ANOTHER time wearing different shoes or someone else was ALSO peeping in my bedroom window. He also got caught looking in another girl’s window once.

I’m super paranoid talking to people online, that they’re someone I know out to get me…

Because when I was a teen my uncle and cousin set up a fake account and even kind of flirted with me, then took things i said, attacked me about those things and posted it on ALL my friends’ blogs, even people I barely knew. (They were attacking me for claiming my father abused me, but being vague because I didn’t want to talk about it, so it didn’t happen)

I assume every man is a pedophile. I’m also leery about women…

Because I HAVE KNOWN SO MANY PEDOPHILES!! They’re fucking everywhere. They’re next door, they’re a parent, an ex boyfriend, a church leader, a friend’s father….and they usually get away with it or barely get any punishment besides the humiliation of being listed as an offender. And I’ve known 2 girls who killed themselves because of it. (Yes, both were JWs and their abusers as well)

Stop making me feel like shit for being crazy paranoid when it was other people that made me this way!!

Let me tell you something about Teru

Usually in anime, it’s really easy to forget the age of the characters, since middle schoolers can turn into and become superheroes, assassins, magical girls & boys and mecha pilotes.

Mob Psycho 100 on the other hand gives the readers/anime watchers some constant reminders. If you think about it, naming the “shadow leader” of a school “White T Poison” sounds ridiculous at first, and goes well with the lighthearted jokes the show offten makes, but from a different viewpoint, it’s a legitimate name not meant to be funny. The explanation is very simple: it was middle school kids who gave this nickname. For a child, it’s a serious title and not a joke.

If we look at Teru in the same light, and don’t forget he’s a kid no matter how powerful he is, we can understand his character a little better. We know he lives alone, and as Dimple stated, it’s probably because Claw is after him and he doesn’t want to involve his family. Let this sink in for a moment. No, he’s not university student Peter Parker, who decides to dump his girlfriend because it’s too dangerous to be the lover of Spiderman, no he’s not any other adult superhero either, who would act cold and abandon their powerless, easy target companion because that’s the right thing to do. He’s a child, in middle school. We don’t actually know when he moved away from his family, but it’s stated that Claw targeted him for years before the current storytime.

Now, I highly doubt a decent parent would let him go and live alone, especially after several attempts were made to kidnap him. If he really moved away to protect his family, he probably ran away from home and cut the ties with them. This lead to his personality developing the way it did. He has no support system behind him, no one to turn to. He only has his psychic powers, that’s why he relies on them so much.

No matter how strong a kid is, the world is undoubtedly a scary place when you are alone, especially if a group of adult espers are after you. Becoming the shadow leader of Vinegar school gave Teru anonymity and power. Anoymity was necessary since he’s still trying to hide himself from Claw, and power was necessary since nothing’s easier to counter his fears than to tell himself he’s the main character of this world, influential & indestructible. Being the main character usually comes with things eventually turning to your advantage and not dying. It’s a false belief, a false confidence created entirely to control one’s anxiety and fears.

I can probably write a lot about his change of character and Mob’s influence, but the other thing people usually point out about him is his wardrobe, so let’s adress that issue. Again, Teru is a child in middle school, without parents or siblings to buy him clothes or coordinate his outfits. Let’s be honest, how many of you had right on point fashion sense in middle school, or dressed yourselves? No, what he has is magazines and TV, and a kid’s love for colors and chaos. His usual outfits are the results.

Of course all this doesn’t mean other headcanons regarding him can’t be true, I just think this is the most logical.

Probably the biggest controversy in the psycho pass fandom is whether Akane did the right thing in not shutting down the Sybil System. Really there is no right answer but I feel that people who really do believe she should have shut it down don’t take into consideration how small the latent criminal population really is compared to the nations population. (There was a percentage given in one of the translations somewhere it was really small.) If you think about it by the end of season 2 there were only a couple inspectors at the mwpsb in charge of crime in Tokyo. I think most people would understand it as the logical thing to do, and so I think the debate is more about if it was morally the right thing to do. 

The Masked Truth is out!

The Masked Truth is out today! This one’s a standalone, meaning you get the whole story in one book–no cliffhanger ending, no unfinished plot threads. It’s a dark thriller aimed at older teens and adults. It also deals with mental health, and that’s what makes it special for me–it fulfills a dream of incorporating this into a mainstream teen novel. I wanted to show this aspect as one part of their lives, rather than the aspect that defines them. So this isn’t an “issue book,” but it’s a book that includes issues…if that makes sense ;)

To give a little more on the flavour of the novel, below are my two industry reviews so far, a starred one from Publishers Weekly and a very nice one from Kirkus.

If you read it, I would absolutely love it if you posted a review wherever you bought it and/or Goodreads. Good/bad/indifferent, ALL reviews help a book and are appreciated.

★ The Masked Truth - Publisher’s Weekly
Armstrong (the Age of Legends trilogy) specializes in the unexpected in this terrifying thriller where suspense and psycho- logical horror serve as perfect counter-points to themes of forgiveness and growth. Riley Vasquez was settling in for a night of babysitting when a deadly crime was committed in the house. She survives, but nightmares and guilt leave her a shadow of her former self. In an effort to return to who she was before the tragedy, Riley agrees to attend a weekend therapy camp held in a renovated ware- house. Max Cross shares a therapy group with her, though they don’t interact much. His dark secret and sarcastic attitude keep him from getting close to anyone, yet when the camp attendees are taken hostage by three masked men, Riley and Max must dig deep to trust each other in order to escape the warehouse. Masterful storytelling, particularly in the setup and execution of a plot overflowing with twists, and edge-of-the-seat mystery provide spine-tingling chills, and while Armstrong doesn’t shy from violence, it isn’t gratuitous. Ages 14–up.

The Masked Truth - Kirkus Reviews
A weekend therapy camp becomes a living nightmare for a group of troubled teenagers when it is taken hostage by masked gunmen. Riley Vasquez has suffered from PTSD since the parents of a young girl she was babysitting were brutally gunned down in their home while Riley hid upstairs with the child. Max, recently diagnosed with schizophrenia, is acutely aware that he cannot always trust that his subjective experience matches reality. The two become each other’s best hope for survival as the violence and chaos progressively escalate. The novel begins with a punch of adrenaline, and the pace rarely slows as Riley and Max race to unravel who is truly behind the murderous plot. As they struggle to stay alive, they also grapple with their own psychological conflicts, revealed largely from Riley’s first-person point of view and occasionally from Max’s third-person perspective. The violence in this thriller is not for the faint of heart; there is a substantial body count by the story’s end. However, the dry wit and gentle compassion exchanged between the two protagonists help to keep the tension from becoming overwhelming. Riley’s trauma and Max’s mental illness make them fragile, but the teens are not broken. In each other they find the understanding and the strength they need to survive. Action-packed suspense from beginning to end. (Thriller. 14+)
