Because I know that we all love to talk about the parallels between Odasaku and Kunikida, let’s talk about how Odasaku losing his kids was the force that drove him over the edge and about how Kunikida has seen the death of at least two kids that he could have saved if he had done something differently and how it’s the death of those kids that hurts him more than anything else we’ve seen
That in the Azure King arc he told Sasaki that he doesn’t cry for the casualties he causes anymore because his tears do nothing for them, but when that little kid blew himself up in chapter 47.5 he couldn’t stop screaming
I mean I’ll bet you anything that Kunikida’s scream sounded hauntingly similar to Odasaku’s after Odasaku’s kids were blown up
At the rate we’re going it might very well be the death of a child that pushes Kunikida over the edge and turns him into a man who is as blind to all but his ideals as the Azure King was, exactly as Dazai had warned him
honestly guys it really bothers me that scream isnt as big as it should be. Scream has so many amazing qualities to it and also protrudes a lot of similar aspects like other really big popular shows out there. For example, Teen Wolf is one of if not the BIGGEST show on MTV right now and scream is so similar to Teen Wolf. Scream has a similar theme to Teen Wolf and i totally see similar parallels between characters. I see a Brooke x Lydia parallel and i see a Stiles x Noah parallel. Scream and TW both have similar dark themes that revolve death and murders, only difference is one is supernatural and the other is serial killer(s). So to me, in my own personal opinion, i find it hard for someone to watch one but not the other?
Also, Pretty Little Liars is also a really BIG show with an enormous fandom and i see TONS of similarities between both shows. the whole concept and plot line of pretty little liars in its entirety is to find out who A is, thats it. The whole show is based on finding out who is the person (A) that has been harassing and stalking these 4 girls. Well, guess what, so is Scream. The whole point is trying to find out who the killer is stalking the Emma (well in this season, just Audrey) and who is the killer killing everyone in the town. Both shows have fandoms forming long theories and turning us into little theorist. There was even a PLL reference from Noah in season 1 of Scream. Plus a benefit to scream is it doesnt DRAGGGG the same plot forever like pll. I’m not in anyway shape or form trying to throw shade at PLL, i’m just pointing out the fact that it took PLL 6 seasons before they told us who A is while it only took Scream 10 episodes to tell us who the killer was in season 1.
But what makes Scream unique is that its based off a movie franchise. Scream has qualities and elements of really popular shows out there plus its franchise theme based off the original movies. “You can’t do a slasher movie as a TV series.” i mean scream is just amazing all around and i dont understand why it isn’t as big as it should / has the potential to be, especially when it possesses similar themes and plots as other really big shows out there. Lastly, i am in no way, shape, or form trying to say that Scream is superior to TW or PLL, i’m simply just saying that Scream should be just as big and TW and PLL. Scream shouldn’t be at risk of being cancelled, it has so much going for it.
