SO I’ve pasted what was written [SPOILERS BELOW THE CUT] and why I think this is the closest we’ll get to actual spoilers. The OP also correctly predicted details and the plot of Rogue One prior to the release and he is already well known on Reddit for this. We know some specific individuals already saw secret screenings. So I’m very VERY intrigued by this.
IF YOU DONT WANT TO BE SPOILED, DO NOT CLICK THE LINK OR KEEP READING BECAUSE THIS WILL GIVE AWAY MAJOR PLOT POINTS. ALSO REYLOS REJOICE.
Okay, so I just binged the first three episodes of Freeform’s new show The Bold Type. It is AMAZING!!! I could give you a list of all the reasons why this show is so unlike anything else I’ve ever seen…so I’m going to. There are some spoilers below the cut, just a heads up
- The main cast is all female, and their personalities are complex.
-They work at a fashion magazine that is all about women empowerment and feminism
- The shows avoids stereotypes about women (and men) who work at fashion magazines (in my opinion)
-The board of said magazine is comprised of mostly old, white guys, a fact that is repeatedly brought up and made fun of in the show
- The women in the show help each other! The CEO (Jacqueline) is so supportive and encouraging of her employees. Sutton’s boss gives her tips on how to get a new job in the fashion dept and gives her a recommendation with very little hesitation
- One of the characters is a lesbian Muslim woman who wears a hijab and takes thought-provoking photographs
- Sutton’s boyfriend is so supportive of her dreams and never once diminishes her for wanting to do fashion
- Kat explores her sexuality without any fear/judgement from her friends
- Women support and help each other (did I say that already?)
- Jane goes through some really personal issues when asked to write a sex column about orgasms. Again, is not shamed. Ultimately posts an article that helps others relate to her experience
- Jacqueline encourages Jane to push herself as a write and not limit herself
- WOMEN SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER
Like seriously, go watch this show. Don’t let it fall through the cracks
Well this makes a lot more sense now… spoilers below the cut
“None of this would’ve happened if they chose me for the Paradis operation 9 years ago and let me inherit the armor“ - Porco Galliard, Ch93
Reiner didn’t fight back against Porco’s criticism because they are absolutely true. Marcel’s lies caused Reiner to succeed over Porco. Marcel’s lies resulted in Reiner walking away from the group. Marcel’s lies resulted in the situation that caused his death.
Porco is so close to the truth of what happened that Reiner is left wondering if he’s inherited his brother’s memories of the event.
Below the cut you will find my personal (and very sloppy) summary of chapter 146 with some pictures. There’s uhh… spoilers and stuff (duh) so be careful XD
Was this chapter worth the secretary at my school finding Hana Yume in my bag, going “Oh my, look it’s Hana to Yume!”, pulling it out in front of the staff and saying, “I used to read this so long ago!” while everyone burst out laughing at us? You bet!
As I will no doubt say until the end of time, please take this summary with a grain of salt. First off, it’s not a word for word translation, it’s a summary, so expect my own personal flair and interpretation to be throughout. Second, and more importantly, I am not fluent in Japanese. I will try to make it clear when I am struggling and unsure, but take everything lightly, as a single kana can throw me off a true meaning and I will not catch more difficult phrases and wordplay. I’m still learning, so keep that in mind.
This aside, enjoy the chapter! I know I sure did ^ ^
I feel bad for Yukio and I know a bunch of people hate him/ are starting to dislike him due to how he’s been acting throughout the manga, but this chapter makes me sad for him, Rin and Shiemi.
a few spoilers are below the cut for those who have not read the chapter
He reads and finds out all the stuff Ryuji and lighting find out but he’s not satisfied with it probably because it wasn’t really what he was looking for. He didn’t get the information on his mother he thought he would, just the experiments the order was doing. This causing him to realize the the Illuminati and True cross are equally fucked up organizations.
I cant imagine being in his shoes right now. Starting at such a young age the training and emotional toll he endured for an organization he thought was preventing people like the Illuminati from doing corrupt stuff is just as bad, but more secretive about it.
His whole life dedicated to protecting others and helping in the fight against demons and protecting his brother Rin, being one of the sons of Satan, who inherited his powers and having his line always on that thin line of foe or friend for the True Cross. I can imagine my stress levels being through the roof if the only person I can truly say is blood, is always on the verge of being executed in a blink of an eye.
Even at the very beginning of his training for the True Cross we see that Shiro (vaguely) says “Hey how about joining the fight and getting to protect your big bro”
Which the hatred for rin developed.
Rin never had to stress about exams and physical training to meet the Order’s requirments to become an exorcist. Rin didn’t have that great of a childhood but his bullying wasn’t as great of a burden that Yukio endured. Yukio early on had the idea that “You are your brother’s protector” so even at the end of the Impure King battle the anger and violence towards Rin is kinda acceptical. Yes Rin help defeat the Impure King and he managed to finally get his Powers under control, but Yukio is looking at it almost through the Order’s eyes. Beat one big demon but who’s to say he won’t be conviced by Lucifer and join them? Can we truly trust him and risk his powers be used against us? Maybe seeing how great his powers are scare the True Cross and they rather dispose of him and never take that risk of him turning against them.
Yukio is so burried in multiple responsibilities, being a exorcist, going to high school, teaching exorcism classes, he probably is trying to get all the Meisters titles like Shiro and above all that the constant watching over Rin and the rest of the Exwires (mostly Rin).
With all of this we get to see and understand why he feels so lonely. He didn’t get to go out and get into trouble and do what kids do. He probably had some free time but you have to think about how Yukio always had those
responsibilities at the back of his head. He never really got to be innocent and live freely, he always had a goal to reach.
So going to Shiemi when he has no where else to go, her being the one person who I truly believe brings peace to him, it’s sad that he can’t even count her as a friend. He met her through his training cause of the shop that her mother runs and he tells her “ Just for a little”. Then goes to confess his loneliness.
He knows that Shiemi isn’t the best with giving advice, but he still tells her. I doubt he was really looking for her to say some wise words to help him, I think he just wanted some affection, just someone who he knows won’t really pry him for answers on his recent behaviour. Just someone who will let him try to shut out his mind for just a second. Which she does until she tries to comfort him by telling him that her and Rin are there for him. With the recent build up of self hatred and hatred towards his brother he quickly snaps out of his depressed state and snaps at her.
Imma break this up with other posts so yea stay tuned if ya want
level20 - Epilogue findings - More Joseph, and Amanda’s Bad Ending
Just to help confirm to everyone about Joseph’s current available (normal) endings, here’s what I’ve found. Also a small possible hint on how to get Amanda’s Bad Ending. Spoilers below the cut as usual.
okay so hear me out. I love the idea that Jasper’s body was never found as much as the next guy- it signifies losing a closure, and David wanting to find his buddy and being convinced he is coming back but he’s DEAD and David can’t see that. BUT- another idea I love even more- that the t-shirt he wears around his neck is Jasper’s. Specifically, the one Jasper died in.
Alright, now that I’m home, I’ll try to give a detailed report on the FMA live action movie. All of this information comes from the premiere screening at Anime NYC. The movie has not been released in Japan yet, and there is no information about a publicly available U.S. release yet either. Also keep in mind that I have a bad memory and also wasn’t able to pay 100% attention during the movie because I was extremely uncomfortable the whole time due to the positions I had to sit on in order to see the screen as someone who’s Ed’s height, so there might be things I missed or remembered wrong, and a lot of this is fairly subjective. Anyone else who saw the movie is welcome to share additional comments!
