so many good scenes in this ep

4

If I run away today, good people will die. If I stand and fight, some of them might live; maybe not many, maybe not for long. Hey, you know, maybe there’s no point to any of this at all, but it’s the best I can do. So I’m gonna do it, and I will stand here, doing it, until it kills me.

anonymous asked:

I don'tknow if you already answered this but do you have any anime recommandation?

i’ve never been asked for anime recommendations in my inbox before usually i just recommend some to ppl that message me or my friends irl but IM ACTUALLY REALLY EXCITED TO DO THISSS -

okay here are 15 anime i’ll recommend to you anonie :)

these are in no specific order 


1: Boku No Hero Academia - character develoment? check. Non-neglecting of side characters? check. Bomb af graphics? double check. Loveable best boy? yep yup. Great fandom that collectively hates Mineta? yesh

2: Diamond no Ace - sports anime that actually shows the struggles of different teams? yesss. epic scenes that are so great it could be a meta anime but it still retains the basic functions of baseball? huehue double yes. the mc is such a ball of energy and genuinely wants to be the Ace and has so much development as a character that you honestly start wanting him to get that number? yes yes yes yes yes

3: Nichijou - one of the greatest work anime has produced. really its so effing hilarious and it really pinpoints the things everybody does in everyday life. like flip a police officer for mistakenly confiscating your boys love manga. accidentally stabbing your thumb with a mechanical pencil, the struggles of ordering at Starbucks or even..

yeah.. ordinary life ha

4: Magi - a smol baby boy tryna bring peace to the world? check. fucking strong girl that can beat any kind of wild beast there is? heck yeah! magic? yup. loads of backstory that actually makes sense and relates to the arcs? checkity check. villiains that really arent villains and good guys that truly are the bad guys? ho boi yessss. a magical recorder? you got it. also the graphics are great

5: Mob Psycho 100 - another smol baby boy just tryna navigate middle school. blessed with amazing psychic powers but powerless in terms of popularity and friendships. truly such a great anime that teaches a lot of moral stuff and has A M A Z I N G fight scenes. our boy mob is such a freaking god and the art style is very different but so expressive 10/10 would recommend

6: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou - [Daily Lives of High School Boys] like nichijou, this is another anime that is at the height of comedy gold. every episode is such meme worthy. the main protag really isnt the main protagonist, so many puns, great side characters, and i cant express how much of a feel good anime this is

7: Bakemono no Ko - okay this is a movie. and when i say this is such a fascinating movie, i mean it. this really smol boy gets adopted by a bear after he runs from home. this big bad bear™ is actually so pure and best dad. the uncles are great and so punny i cant. okay, they also have some really epic sword fights.. i really cant explain this movie without giving spoilers lmao but go watch it if you want, you wont regret it

8: Hunter x Hunter - young fisher-boy and young assassin-boy walk into a hunter exam together, who survives? friendship.. and the newly acquired dads they found along the way [honestly go watch it, i was skeptical at first but i never loved anything more in my life] also the arcs are so monumental, really great plot and friendship!!

9: Yuri On Ice!!! - edgy ice skating and gay couples that reaffirm what love is? check. little smol bean yurio tryna act all mighty and tough? yep. amazing soundtrack? heck yeahh! great characters that in no way hate on homosexuals? you got it. amazing graphics? best boys? well dang, you got it!

10: Shokugeki no Soma - food. food. food wars. great scenes that have food giving you orgasms? basically a sports anime but about food? great mc that really deserves all the love he gets. when they tie a bandana on their forehead, shit is about to get started. food. food. food wars.

11: Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - as i write this, i cry. this was so good and i was wary of watching it bc there was/is so much hype around it but alas IT WAS SOO GOOD I CANT. like two brothers? amazing morals? the fact that nothing is as it seems? kickass female characters. alchemy. the hype is real with this one, but its so worth it and i 10/10 would lower you down FMA hell.

12: Katekyo Hitman Reborn! - [also known as Reborn!] i found this by mistake and my life really hasnt been the same. mafia story. first few eps are just comedic and really dont tell you jack shit about the storm thats coming afterwards. holy heck, a main character that set standards for how to demolish your enemies? friendship! fight scenes that make you wanna fite anyone? so many powers that actually make sense? checkity check. friendship!!

13: Bungou Stray Dogs - hidden powers that main character doesnt know about? check. good dad dazai. another mafia story. a mafia boy tryna kill the mc because of his powers and dazai has become mc’s dad instead of his [okay i’m trolling lmao] but really this is a great mafia anime. theories. villainous characters that have been blackmailed into being bad.. really it has it all

14: Haikyuu!! - small chibi boy just wants to play volleyball in peace. “i can jump™” meets skyscraper black-haired blue-eyed god who rules the court. [trollingg] but honestly, this has to be one of the most accurate sports anime i’ve watched. spiky main and side characters that are completely adorable and its kinda hard not to get sucked in, but you will

15: Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! - gamer dude dies [by mistake] and on his way to the afterlife, he’s given a chance by a goddess to go to another world and defeat the demon king. grants him the possibility of taking any one thing to this new world, my guy picks the goddess [fukin dead] and whoops there ya go lmaoo. but no honestly, its great and funny and the explosion/action scenes are beyond E P I C. also best girl, Megumin, is there so you should def check it out

Small, but firm.

Is there such thing as way to many posts about ep 10 victor’s engagement scene? The answer is NO, so here’s another one

prepare for a long post

I spot something round made of gold

“lucky charm”

cue in church scene… you know what happens in churches??? this

from what I’ve been told, marriage proposals in Japan are discreet. They are not the usual “will you marry me?” that we, westerners have. The “will you take care of me” from the last episode was a good example of that and this “I’ll try my best from tomorrow”, which refers to the figure skating routine is even more discreet. Yuuri learnt to show is love to victor through ice skating, so it only makes sense that his proposal is somehow related to that.

And Victor understood what Yuuri was implying. That face is a bit of shock and surprise, but it’s much more a face of understanding what’s going on, what Yuuri’s words imply

The fact that he pull off a ring and did the same kind of vow, shows that he was also thinking about it for some time

And even though Yuuri did the first move, even though he took the initiative, he was still insecure, because as you can see, the decision of buying the rings was kind of impulsing. He was shocked when Victor put a ring on his finger, because, although he was sure he loved him, he wasn’t sure that Victor loved him back. That was the confirmation he needed. That is the reason behind these smiles

And then, of course, we have the restaurant scene

(victor looks so happy!!!)

and this is the precise moment that the truth hits pichit

the yoi fandom in one picture:

(don’t even try to deny it, yuuri)

Their reactions!!!!

Christophe: oh my, my friend just got engaged, I’m so happy for him. when will I find my true love?

Otabek: marriage is good. I applaud this union between to people

yurio: UUUHHHHH? WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN? WH WAS I NOT INFORMED OF THEIR INTENTIONS PREVIOUSLY?

minado and mari: uh… I did not see that one coming. finally…

reactions:

minado and mari: dammit victor, you ruined everything. you had to do that. did you not see yuuri last year? you will never get married

Christophe: cute, but I’ll win

yurio and otabek: GAME ON. there’s no way in hell that’ll happen. I’ll win and you’ll remain single forever

pichit: uhm… I want to win, but I also want them to get married…. What should I do in order to get both?

Some things from Story and Song Part 2
  • Travis’s voice crack when he asks Griffin if the voidfish are okay! The ruffboi is also a kindboi. 
  • Full disclosure: I fucking love Travis’s “Girl from Ipanema plays in all elevators all the time” goof because it always reminds me of when Griffin did the shittiest/best cover of it AS MOTHER FUCKING UPSY back in the Crystal Kingdom.
  •  "Hey… Lizard.“ Magnus’ fucking wonderfully shitty comeback to Carey made me choke 
  •  Travis’s roleplaying during the training scenes with the bear was absolutely incredible. Everyone was on fire this week, natch, but this was incredible and basically thank Travis for Travis. 
  • Speaking of incredible roleplaying, it would be remiss of me not to mention Taako’s interactions with both Kravitz and Joaquin, which both had incredible weight and perfect characterization simultaneously. Even though they obviously share the same wit, Taako and Justin are probably the least similar player/character duo personality-wise out of the THB* and it blows my mind how good Justin is at making Taako so incredibly complex while also always making sure he stays true to the character. (Also, bless Justin and Griffin for giving us Taakitz kiss scenes despite the fact that it must be real weird to talk about smooching your bro)

anonymous asked:

Why did they have that long Danielle speech resuming her life to Jon when they didn't do it for anybody else that she met in the whole series? And had Davos to explain Jon's life too so she knows. That's not how you build a romance if their intention is J0n3rys, I've never seen that trope before. Like in a few minutes they get to know each other by someone else and the next episode they fall bc, why not, mutual respect, and then a few eps after they bang bc boy finds girl a goddess. WTF??!!!

They did it because they finally had the last two Targaryens in one scene. It was like they had to start to get to know each other for the final revelation. I didn’t like it though, I hated it. 

That whole Danielle’s speech about what she had to go through which is, btw, not any different from something that so many other women have to endure, was so uncalled for. But somehow d&d decided to make her look more entitled than ever in this ep. and had her describe herself as the Mary Sue who suffered so much and only did good in her life. There’s Jon telling her about the WW and she starts with this little monologue of hers about being sold, betrayed and raped and defiled and she survived and built what she has now only because she believes in herself and bla bla bla bla, a speech that was TOTALLY AND UTTERLY OUT OF CONTEXT, because Jon doesn’t give a fuck about her birthright and whether she gave birth to dragons or the dothraki crossed the sea for her, but only about the Great War coming, yet she brags about HOW GREAT SHE IS, in front of a man she doesn’t know. Like girl, wake the fuck up and pay attention instead of only listening to yourself. 

The pompous way to describe herself, that apparently gives her the right to assert herself as the rightful Queen of the 7K, that I cannot stand. Sansa Stark had to endure the same fucking shit:

  • Found herself in a foreign place (because fuck, that’s foreign place for her), where she was held prisoner, mistreated and beaten up in public;
  • Forced to marry not one, but TWO men;
  • Being followed around by a fucking creeper that “““loves””” her only for her resemblance to her mother and kissed her when she was still a child!;
  • She witnessed with her own eyes her father being beheaded, heard about her brother and mother murdered and decapitated while in KL as she was prisoner of the family who ordered the massacre and married to one of them;
  • Her aunt hated her and almost killed her for the love of a fucking creeper, instead of loving her for being family;
  • SOLD by the same creeper to the family that concocted along with the Lannisters the murder of her family;
  • RAPED, ABUSED, VIOLATED, DEFILED in her own HOME;
  • Her little brother killed by the man she was forced to marry;

YET SHE SURVIVED ALL THIS. She survived, reached her long, lost brother and convinced him to fight. She gained back her home, she rules the North now and has her OWN PEOPLE following her lead because THEY RESPECT HER AND BELIEVE IN HER. 

YEAH DANIELLE, OTHER WOMEN WENT THROUGH SHIT LIKE YOU DID, BUT NOT EVERYONE IS AN ENTITLED BRAT LIKE YOU, WITH THOUSANDS OF TITLES THAT ARE OF NO USE TO THE COMMON PEOPLE.

Anyway, Davos went into full rage mode and described the shit Jon went through and THANK YOU DAVOS, because she fucking needs to be put in her place. I bet Dadvos noticed this brat needs an education of “how being less entitled and more humble”.

But I don’t know why they needed this to build the romance this way. Hyping the struggle they both had to endure to respect each other? I don’t rule out this is the way they want the romance to begin, but I believe it was a parallel between the two last Targaryens, who are similar for certain aspects, yet very different. Danielle relies on her birthright and her dragons, Jon never had any of it, but he gained the respect of his people and of the wildlings nonetheless because he is a leader, a commander. He became KITN without a title, without dragons, without the arrogance to believe to be the chosen one.

Those two representations mark the huge difference between them. She brags about who she is, what she has done and her birthright; Jon doesn’t even want to speak about his accomplishments, Davos intervenes on his behalf because he cannot stand anymore this woman. Hell, Jon doesn’t even want people to know he was resurrected! He could go around and brag about it, but he doesn’t. He’s not like her and never will be. 

Two Targaryens, yes. One the opposite of the other though. 

And I truly believe that is what D&D wanted to show us.

If they plan on building the romance like this, then no. It’s a big, huge NO for me. I’m tired of seeing men falling for her out of respect for what she did, how entitled she is and just because she’s her. I’m so fucking tired of men falling head over heels for her (see Jorah who is still not fucking over her), they’re making her look like a goddess that every single man worships. They have to stop with this and give her a male antagonist that won’t fall for her in a matter of a day, which could be interesting if it ends up being her last kin.

Supernatural 13.04

CasCasCasCasCasCastiel

anonymous asked:

do you have some anime recommendations? :)

Hey! Sorry I received this like 4 days ago but I only just finished my finals so i’m answering now hurhur. Actually I’m not sure why you’re asking me because I only got into anime late last year, but here are some that I have watched and loved!!

1. Hybrid Child

Do you want to cry your eyeballs out? Are you a sucker for suffering? Do you want to know how much emotion you can invest into just 4 episodes? Then this is the anime for you. Brilliant art, MUSIC, and plot. I literally created an account on myanimelist just to leave a review for this. It’s that good.

2. Boku Dake ga Inai Machi

A friend recommended this to me by chance. Was hooked from the first episode, binged it in one afternoon. Crunchyroll’s most heartwarming scene award should have gone to this anime but it was robbed by yuri on ice ep 7. Has one of my fav opening themes as well.

3. Akatsuki no Yona

While Yona’s flip-flopping personality is a little annoying, I have yet to see an anime that properly develops so many characters so well. I’m attached to all of them. Also, music is fantastic. Incorporates traditional instruments like the koto and erhu to stay true to the time period. 

4. Gintama

Listen. You haven’t watched anime if you haven’t watched Gintama. Characters breaking the 4th wall to criticise the show’s lack of budget, surprisingly well-written dialogue despite the show being one massive shitpost/meme, over-the-top cesspit-level humour. It’s all here folks. 

That’s all I have to recommend for now, but these are really worth your time i promise!! 

Best in Five (vol. 2)

So last year I did a “Best in Five” post for episodes 1-10, covering seasons 1-5. I promised I’d do another post for episodes 11-23 after season 5 finished. But when season 5 finished, I took the whole “hiatus” thing a little too seriously and just… enjoyed a little break. For five months. 

Now, tonight, Arrow is back on our TVs and I really need to do this post. This list was really difficult. Because so many episodes were so good. And so many were SO BAD (honestly, Arrow has an ep 11-19 problem). SO. Here goes.

Pros and Cons of Degrassi Season Structures

So for this one I’m going to glance at Season 4 of Next Class… but this is a broad strokes piece so nothing will be really focused on in detail.

Seasons 1-9 (Next Gen era)

So technically there’s a slight shift in the writing format around Season 5? But it’s not enough for me to:
- Rewatch S1-9 to do this.
- Really focus on it for this.

Pros: So the biggest advantage of this era was the plots that mattered, the big plots, and especially the two parters, felt very important and big. When an episode went at something, it hit hard and felt very different from the rest of the season. Those specific episodes were crisp and on point…

Cons: So the reason those episodes felt so on point… was everything else was really slow. Having two plots in 24 minute episodes made the B plots run too long and the A plots run… fine. Unless it’s bad and then you’re there too long. You would think with a lower cast they could flesh everyone out, but no, lots of dead time.

This isn’t to take away from the good episodes, all the good things, and how amazing some of the characters are. Not Ash.

Seasons 10-12 (Degrassi Era Part 1)

Pros: So there are two types of time, real time and skipped time. The time you see and the time you… don’t. If you’ve been watching Next Class you feel how weird it is to have 120 days represented by 10 episodes (12 days per episode). Season’s 10-12 are very good at making things feel like time is moving reasonably. Events on a plot can be properly spaced from each other. Even if you’re not into Eclare, the romance follows a fairly reasonable path on paper.

The other advantage, of course, was the allowance to have plots extend past one episode.

Cons: You would think 40 episodes would fix either how slow a season feel, or how many characters just didn’t get used properly. But it doesn’t, and the proper feeling of time is sloggishly slow to rewatch. But that isn’t the problem, or the main problem anyway. Two Parters are no longer special. And while this seems like a really lame complaint, think about how differently a 2 parter feels from a stand alone. 10-12 lost that by having everything (but the three ep start-up to S11) be two parters.

But the seasons still felt gruelingly slow, thanks to having so many episodes (time is a double edged sword).

Seasons 13-14 (Degrassi Era Part 2)

Season 13 is weird, as it’s a 40 ep run but it uses all the mini-ep construction that S14 has. So I grouped it here because my big complaint on 10-12 is everything was a two parter.

Pros: This was the start of mini arc construction, where everything was basically a group of 4 episodes. Each block of 4 episodes has a little bit of plot build-up in the earlier episodes for the A plot in the later episodes. It’s overall a really good set-up. 40 Ep still feels sluggish and empty especially with the current roster of the cast in S13, but S14 had a much shorter ep run and while the construct of the season is good S14 has some of the worst plots to really take seriously.

But that thought doesn’t go here, just focus on the return of strong two parters, a stronger overall season construction, and a better flow of events.

Cons: S13 has most of the same cons as S10-12, but overall the issue is not properly optimizing the mini-arc builds to use the most characters the most ways. Oh yeah, and some of the worst plots. Nobody really felt slept on in the same ways as S10-12 or NC1-4, but there was a lot of hard places to make things work with the way things were built.

Oh yeah and Adam’s death was not properly worked into the plot but I’ve covered that other places.

Production Seasons 15 and 16 (Next Class Era)

Quick note! Seasons initially meant production era, that’s everywhere but Netflix. That’s the number of episodes made for the order of the year. Sometimes shenanigans happen where an order gets reworked, or an order of more episodes covers more time? Anyway, 15 is NC 1+2, 16 is 3+4.

…I’m a writer, not a mathematician, so that works.

Pros: The 5 ep mini arcs work, and better than S14′s mini arcs. On top of that they’ve gotten a hell of a lot better at composing episodes and scenes that just blend as many active plot strings together at once. I’m not sure what changed specifically between S14 and NC1+2 but it is just… so good how any one episode blends it all together so well.

Cons: So the big, big, major problem is the abundance of omitted time caused by 20 eps per school year. Beyond how they underuse some cast and overuse others (which is a complaint about all 14 previous seasons to varying degrees) this is the problem.

Imagine, if you will, the entire run of Next Class (including or excluding NC4 based on if you have or have not watched yet) was a single school year. …and the writers know how the flow of time works so Tiny and Lola haven’t been dating for a few weeks/several months at the same time. That Maya’s bullied in late October. The bus crash is before winter break. Maya’s suicide is before spring break. And that… right, spoilers, and then some stuff happens for prom and graduation.

The lack of implied time makes things feel more reasonable and logical to a degree… even if with this set of plots it causes a lot of things to happen too fast (Maya getting to suicide over a span of 2 months instead of… the 6 I think they have). But the feeling of the timeline is better.

What’s the Verdict?

Season 14 still feels like the best overall span of a season, but Next Class’s individual episode writing is the best as long as you don’t ask the writers to tell time. But that’s just me. Respond with your own thoughts as to what each era has right and wrong. What works and doesn’t. Etc etc.

anonymous asked:

That gif set of Cas sitting on Deans bed asking him "what were you dreaming about" or something, and the bathroom scene in the ep Free to be You and Me are two of my favorite sexual tension moments between the two of them. I also really liked the scene in The End when Cas tells the women to wash up for the orgy and then he's alone with Dean and just starts stretching. So many good moments!

I love those first few seasons when it was so believable that they were just…fucking off screen.
