Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5

Anyway, I’m fucking done. We have like two animes with actual gay couples. I’m so fucking sick of this. Where is Clannad with two girls?? I want a Tamako Market Love Story with two boys? Where are my damn ghibli movies at? Why can’t a girl help a witch and fall in love? Why can’t a boy fall in love with a transgender robot fairy while also trying to stop dragons from killing off the human race? Where? When? No.6 (and Wandering Son, also) came out in 2011, Yuri On Ice came out in 2016? Why do we have to wait five years for some queer representation (that is not for straight people jesus). I’m so tired. Straight people get their generic straight anime romances all the time. I want my damn high school coming of age story. Why do I only get two! I want some damn shoujo cliches, that doesn’t involve rape and the words “but he’s a man!” Where are they? When will they appear? Why do I have to watch animes and hope, and pray, while straight people don’t even have to think about it. 

I am in no way belittling, Yuri On Ice, No.6, Douyuusei, Wandering Son, but damn if we don’t start getting more representation soon, I’ll do it my damn self. I have ideas. I’ll learn japanese. I’ll shit out fifteen of them every year I swear to god, and I will fight so hard. So unless you want some random american girl always trying to kick your ass ,anime producers, you better start getting your act together. 

anonymous asked:

Hypothetical question: Would you have any tips on distinguishing features for someone who wanted to cosplay Juno for Halloween?

Hypothetical answer: Juno has that noir fedora and trench coat thing going on. He always carries a laser gun. If you’re into doing prosthetics, he has a broken nose.

In order to really make it clear who the character is, we recommend that you date people of all genders while longing most ardently for the sweet embrace of death.

Happy Halloween!
