His death was so heartbreaking to me because of her reaction, and also fittingly poetic. As he represented nihilism, the moment he understood something else, he ceased to be.
It also helped Ichigo grow as a protagonist to see how she dealt with it. I think Ichigo’s always been so empathetic, but when it came to her he turned very unforgiving. Like “oh they all deserved it I couldn’t care less!” (and they did), when she didn’t feel that way towards them herself. Seeing her compassion made him question his own attitude, and I really think this is often forgotten.
As far as the canon ships are concerned, they were there from the start. Orihime always liked Ichigo, and she was always friends with Tatsuki and Chad and yada yada. We were never really shown in depth how they came to be, and it’s probably why Ichiruki is such a popular ship - you got to see their friendship grow from nothing.
And although I enjoyed the endgame anyway, I’m really glad Kubo gave Orihime something like that too. I know Ulquiorra was a shit person. I know. But Kubo could have just focused on Ichigo and the people he got to know, but he didn’t. He gave Orihime a completely different character, but that was also fundamental for her growth, and I’m so grateful for it because she and her influence is so easily overlooked by readers.
Hundreds of chapters later, you know she would never forget about him.
Not to be shady but I’d push Zeke ass to the background real quick for some front running Dizzee.
After part 2 it just left me wanting more Dizzee. More from his perspective. Since his story is so metaphorical I wonder at how that would be. I mean of course his story would be told through art as Zeke’s is told through music, which I noticed was a heavy element in TGD. The story is told by Zeke but Dizzee also tells the story through his messages on the train and in this part in a bigger way through the comics. I want them to go back to the beginning solely from Diz’s POV with his own story because he stays away from the group enough to have his own side thing going on. This part highlighted a lot of things I wanna see extended…
His relationship with his parents
His shut down when Thor was locked up
Thor and dizz before the lock up
The relationship when diz decided to face himself and went to stay with Thor
Thor own life story/interest//history/family cause he don’t seem to have a family…
Dizz coming out or not coming out cause this was not the era
More of the revolution
More lgbqt clubs
Even though they one had a few scenes to work with they were able to show a different side of Dizzee in part 2. His temperament with his brothers (knowable about what’s going on even if they’re hiding it yet nonjudgmental - caring - as open as he’s comfortable) his flash of temper, traits highlighting his focus and his determination. Even though in part he was lost, dizz exhibited a lot of confidence in part 2 that he lacked in part 1. I want the story to continue past him find himself to his ambitions as an artist. Of Jaden is at home with a mic in his hand and we see that confidence shine in Diz but Jaden does an amazing job of showing the exuberance and emotionalism Diz has when he’s painting/when he becomes Rumi. And I love that, I love to see him in art wars and how he transitions when it comes to his craft - def since street art was not considered art back then. Hell I wanna see more of Thor’s work. Since I’m a shipper at heart I want them to have an epic love story that last and has a happy fucking ending - none of that ‘most young love don’t last’ BS. I hate that excuse! I want them to have photos of themselves hugged up in the Paint Palace - not just drawings of their alternate egos. I wanna see Diz support Thor in art shows. I wanna see the adult version of them. I wanna see the Paint Palace graduate to their own art gallery. I wanna see one of them propose to the other in a cheesy manner that uses art.
I just want nice things - I deserve nice things.
TGD is def one of those shows that should have a high number of episodes so the characters can be highlighted corrected, but we can’t get that cause there’s not enough fans. In fact I doubt we’re gonna get a season two considering their episodes got pushed down. I really think those 5 episodes were tester episodes in which the fate of the show depended viewership. The production team seemed to think they wouldn’t get another season which is why they went ahead and created those endings - even tho it seems like they had to recycle Jaden’s scene because of his schedule. Which is upsetting because the team doesn’t wanna give up their own fucking show and they had visions for what they wanted to do, they try to be as honest as possible and I’m thankful for that shit.
i am back from beauty and the beast live action. and i PROMISE that if i’d actually enjoyed it i would have been honest and said so, and i was actually expecting for it to be at least decent, but it fucking sucked! they recycled so many exact scenes and lines from the original that i was just left thinking the whole time about everything the original did better, and the few times when they DID add something new it just felt forced and unnecessary. they clearly were trying to make it “edgier” and more “adult” but that failed completely and it just felt even more washed out, except with like two incidents of the word Damn and some uncomfortable homoerotic subtext and a weird flashback to belle’s mother dying of the plague.
emma watson was really bad. i was really surprised by how bad she was. everything she did and said was just boring, and all the personality belle had in the original was completely wrung out. the cgi was also bad. the beast looked like shit, the fake wolves looked like shit, and there were scenes where the green screen looked so obvious i had to stop myself from bursting out into laughter.
lefou (the gay one) was actually the most interesting character in the movie and had an actual arc, but the scenes where he was hitting on gaston were viscerally painful. you could tell that some execs at disney were like “how to we chemically engineer this character to make the millennials happy with gay subtext while still playing it off as enough of a joke to not seriously challenge any straight viewers.” but the scenes with him were actually fun to watch, unlike almost every other fucking scene in the movie.
also there were continuity issues, unresolved plot threads that they stuck in artificially, THE COLOR PALETTE WAS BLUE AND ORANGE IN EVERY SINGLE FUCKING FRAME, and the castle looked fake as fuck
Okay, so I used to think just like mostly everyone else that Gabriel Agreste is Hawkmoth. After all, he certainly has qualities that would lead us to believe that… but not all of them add up. For example the distance his lair has to be from the Eiffel tower and how he’d basically need to teleport there to akumatize Nino as quickly as he did. Or the fact that his jawline and teeth don’t exactly match up to Hawkmoth’s. But for everything Gabriel lacks in comparison, Mr. Kubdel seems to make up for. For example… the teeth?
Gabriel’s have a curve to individual teeth but Mr. Kubdel’s are flat like Hawkmoth’s.
And when Jalil got akumatized? Well, that was basically a repeat of the situation where Nino got akumatized. The man we might suspect leaves, and immediately after the victim is akumatized. However, there have been multiple discussions that considering where Hawkmoth’s lair is and how quickly he got to Nino, it can’t be Gabriel unless he could magically just appear there.
Now here’s where it gets interesting. If Mr. Kubdel is Hawkmoth, I believe his lair is either in the museum (where he works) or very nearby. Jalil was akumatized right after his interaction with his father in the episode. We can assume there was some time in between, but not much. They also happened to be at the museum, The Louvre.
I’m sure everyone remembers this recycled scene?
Well, thanks to our friend Google, a friend and I were able to find this through Maps and searches:
(Musee du Louvre to the right corner)
Certainly a bit more believable than the Agreste Mansion, no? The tower does seem to be closer in the animation than in the photos but I don’t think it’s entirely to scale.
Also, I think his mustache is either fakeor comes off with the transformation.
There are other similarities between the two- their sternness or the fact they both wear glasses and some kind of neck tie/scarf over where the Miraculous might be. But here’s also where they differ. Gabriel doesn’t show compassion, and is very dismissive. Mr. Kubdel, however, has been shown to behave more fatherly. This might seem like a point against Mr. Kubdel as Hawkmoth, but we’ve actually seen Hawkmoth somewhat sympathize with his victims. Yes, it’s in a condescending way, but it shows that he understands. I don’t think Gabriel would.
So what does this mean if true? It means this asshole akumatized both his kids in his mad quest for the Miraculouses.
