still one of my favorite villains ever

Give me a movie/show and I will give you my honest opinion on it (if I have seen it that is).

Rick and Morty (2013-) - Ahahahhaaa!! My friend gave me such a death glare when I asked if it was for kids. X,D For some reason I imaged it being in the same league as “Regular Show” so I kinda avoided it for a long time. Then I actually watched it and marathoner through it in 2 days. I do not find it HAHA funny, but I still very much enjoy it. There is a cleverness to the writing that I like, and the characters are fun. I am really looking forward to the 3rd season. I do however wish that they could stop with the whole “unhappily married couple” routine. It´s not funny or endearing; I just want to shake people.

Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003) - Another one of my all time favorite animated movies. The CGI effects have not aged very well, but the rest of the animation is still out of this world. Eris is one of the best villains I know and Proteus is THE price for me. This is one of those movies that I can watch over and over again without ever getting tired of it. But now as an adult I do wish that they would have kept in more Middle Eastern influences instead of creating this fantasy Greece land. :P And why was that darn book never explained more properly??? Who made it? Why was it made? What was the world like before it? I want answers!! >:(

Star vs The Forces of Evil (2015-) - I’m currently somewhere in the middle of the latest season, so no spoilers OK. ;) When they released the opening as a teaser I got super exited for the show, but compared to other cartoons like SU, Gravity Falls or Avatar, it didn’t really pull me in. I do watch it (obliviously), but I would never sit up past 12PM to stream it the day it airs. I like Star and Marco as a duo, but I’m not a big fan of the whole romance subplot that has entered the picture. It´s like a watered down version of Kim Possible/Ron (last season), with the difference that they were older, more mature and had both dated other people before even thinking of getting together. That was nice. This tho… Meeeehhh… But I still like it. :D Favorite character = Queen Butterfly

The Swan Princess (1994) - I grew up with this film on VHS and let just say that it was rewinded many many times. Now I like watching it for pure nostalgia. …and ripping the story to shreds. It one of those movies that starts out so promising, but then falls right back into the cliché hole and never manages to get out of it. Like, how much better would it have been if we focused more on the relationship of young Odette and Derek? Then maybe we would have understood better WHY Derek loved her. I did not buy his confession as a kid or now as an adult. PS: I totally had a thing for some of the background ladies as a kid. My bi was showing early on. :P  And also - Why does there exist SEVEN sequels to this movie!! DX

Treasure Planet (2002) - I love this film! Typically I’m not big for sci-fi, but this movie´s aesthetics really gets me. Old fashioned/steampunk ships in the gorgeousness that is space??? GIMME MORE!! (O_O) Who cares is it makes no sense. The story may be really simple, but it´s the characters and their animation what make this movie shine. The only thing that I miss from it really is that emotional connection to Jim´s backstory. I don´t think I have ever shed a tear to his father leaving, which I blame the tone of the montage sequence for. If it had been shown in a more calm manner then I think I would have reacted more strongly. But yes - a 9/10 movie in my books!  

You know I’ve made posts like this before, but I decided to go all out for this one. Here are reasons I love the DCEU.

1. Zack Synder: this man… this man has the most beautiful cinematography I have ever seen. He can make you go back and look at a movie over and over again and still not notice all the little details he has thrown in. He loves Superman and the DC guys. DCEU is about Superman… and how cool is that? Not to mention is absolute love and care for women and women characters. He’s just a god damn badass.

2. Patty Jenkins: I love her. I love her for giving me Wonder Woman. I love her for giving me a superhero I can look up to. She made this movie for young me and for young girls everywhere. I cannot even begin to express how much I love Patty.

3. Henry Cavill: let me just begin this with: DAMN THAT BOI IS FINE. Looks aside, you can tell how much HC loves Superman. He cares about his build, he cares about the comics, he goes and supports the other movies like Suicide Squad, his dog is named Kal! Now he’s not always the best actor, but he brings depth and love to Superman in a way previous incarnations have not had.

3. Ben Affleck: I’ve never really been a big fan of Affleck but seeing him bring a new, darker side to Batman has given me life. I loved this version of him, and I am so delighted to see him learn from his mistakes and realize that Superman does mean hope. And it’s because of Superman that the Justice League even truly begins. And Ben makes you believe that he hated Clark and that he learned the truth.

4. Gal Gadot: I love her with every fiber in my being. I had my reservations about her playing Wonder Woman mainly because I’d never heard of her, but seeing her on screen in BVS… I literally held onto my friend’s hand the entire damn time she was on screen. And her song brings me to my knees. She’s just… everything I could have hoped for.

5. Amy Adams: Lois Lane I think defines the DCEU. She is wait brings light onto Clark and Superman. She is what he believes in, and she’s a BAMF in her own right. She’s not some throw away love interest.

Rubberband Man, Adam Evans, is still one of my favorite characters ever. Like, he got a great reformation (especially by kid’s show standards), his relationships with several other members of the cast are all well thought out and done, and when the show decided to have him be dyslexic the writers actually wrote it into the episode that he’s been hiding the disability in order to explain why it’s never cropped up before.

Originally posted by staticshockyoursystem

Rubberband Man’s whole arc is just great. He’s only a villain at the start because of his bad temper getting the best of him when he realizes a sleazy record maker stole a song of his and flips out and attacks with his powers. So they take care from the start to have him do bad things but not be irredeemable which a lot of people forget to do when they first introduce villains they may want to redeem later. His next appearance is him having made it decently big as an artist under a different guise, using his shapeshifting. He only gets caught because he didn’t listen when warned the venue was too small for his pyrotechnics, starting a fire (and he didn’t listen since he thought they should still do it for the fans–bad idea, decent intentions, also impulsive nature+temper is once again his big flaw).

His third appearance is after he’s served his time and he’s trying to be a superhero to make up for what he’s done. He’s also dating Static’s sister, Sharon. His brother Ebon, who has similar powers and is a major villain on the show, frames him for a crime in order to try and force him back into villainy and to be part of Ebon’s crew (which it’s implied he was a long time ago). Static figures out the deception and he and Rubberband Man take on the bad guys together. Ebon tries to appeal to his being family to make his little brother let him go but Adam has has enough and we have one of the best exchanges from the show, probably my favorite:

Ebon: Blood is thicker than water!

Rubberband Man: And right and wrong are thicker than blood!

Finally we have the episode where his dyslexia is revealed and while it gets some facts wrong (implying dyslexia is only mixing up letters and giving an incorrect list of historical figures who had it) it shows how Adam has managed to hide it for so long. For example, when he thinks there’s important info in a news report that’s quickly scrolling, he gets Sharon to read it by claiming the angle he’s standing at has too much glare to see the screen properly. He later uses his shapeshifting to raise the letters of instructions on his arm and simply counts the letters to figure out the word since there’s only two options and it’s too long to be one of them. Overall like a lot of Static’s special episodes it was pretty well done.

List of fucked up movies i've seen/ still need to watch and review

A list of movies I’ve watched, reviewed, or am hoping to watch and review. I’m just making this list so I can save it for when I move because I’ll be starting my film review channel back up after the move!

Also I added the Butters system, so here’s a guide

0 Butters: I can’t believe this is an actual movie that actually got made. Someone actually took the time to create this. Why.
1-2 Butters: Don’t.
2.5-3 Butters: Go ahead. It’s entertaining enough. I guess.
3.5-4 Butters: Oh shit
4.5-5 Butters: Damn that was good as fuck. 

  • Martyrs (2008)

I actually really liked this one. It brought up some really good points about life and death and the acting was incredible. The English dub actors are like painfully American at some points, but it’s still a pretty good movie. 

Most fucked up part: A 10 minute montage of a girl getting the shit beat out of her

I have reviewed this

/5 Butters

  • Audition (2001)
  • Cannibal Holocaust (1980)
  • I Spit On Your Grave (1978)
  • A Clockwork Orange (1971)*

It’s a classic, but it’s a little older so it’s not quite as “edgy” as some of the newer movies on the list, but it tells a great story and Malcolm McDowell plays and excellent Alex DeLarge

Most fucked up part: There’s a moderately graphic rape scene in the beginning

I still need to review this.

4/5 Butters

  • Irréversible (2002)
  • Men Behind The Sun (1988)
  • Salò, Or The 120 Days Of Sodom (1975)
  • The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (2009)*
  • The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) (2011)*

When the first one came out there was so much hype. “Omg this is the most fucked up movie ever!!!” And then I watched it, and, while the concept is disgusting, it’s kind of boring and the acting is terrible. I didn’t even really feel bad for the girls because their characters were so unlikable.

The second one at least lived up to the gross-ness, but it was still fucking terrible.

Most fucked up part: A naked pregnant woman gives birth in her car and then squashes the baby’s head with her foot.

I still need to review this.

1/5 Butters

  • Aftermath (1994)*

It’s only a half hour and there’s no plot. I mean you can go ahead and watch it because it’s only a half hour of your life, but it’s pretty meh. Basically a doctor fucks a dead body during an autopsy and then gives some human meat to his dog

The most fucked up part: A doctor fucks a dead body during an autopsy and then gives some human meat to his dog. that’s literally the whole thing.

1/5 Butters

  • August Underground’s Mordum (2003)
  • This is the worst movie I’ve ever seen. 20 minutes in I checked the time and died a little inside because there was an hour left. After it was over I just sat there and ate nutella out of the jar because life is too short to waste an hour and twenty minuted of it on this movie. I guess they met their goal though because it actually did make me physically nauseous, and every time I thought it couldn’t possible get more gross, it did. So I mean I guess if you wanna watch an hour and twenty minutes of shaky cam, yelling, and way more vomit than you were expecting, then knock yourself out. It’s not even worth it for the gore. I would watch any other movie that I’ve seen on this list 94 times before I watched this again. If the other 2 August Underground movies were on this list, I would take them off, but fortunately this was the only one that made it on here in the first place.  

    The most fucked up part: The whole thing.

    0/5 Butters 

  • Guinea Pig: The Devil’s Experiment (1985)
  • Guinea Pig: Flowers Of Flesh And Blood (1985)
  • A Serbian Film (2010)

I’ve never been more conflicted with a movie in my life. This movie is well shot, the acting is amazing, the premise is interesting, there are twists and turns along the way, I never lost interest, and yet this is the most sickening, infuriating film I have ever watched in my life. It’s awful, but I just can’t call it a bad movie.

Most fucked up part: I can’t even pick there’s like 5 that stand out and I don’t even want to repeat them.

4/5 Butters

  • Cutting Moments (1997)
  • The Bunny Game (2010)
  • Frontière(s) (2007)
  • Gummo (1997)
  • Nekromantik (1987)
  • Teeth (2007)*

I actually love this movie. It’s the story of a teenage girl with teeth…in her vagina….and they bite down whenever something goes in there without her consent. I feel like us women should evolve to that at some point.

Most fucked up part: Lots of severed dick. Lots. 

I still need to review this

3.5/5 Butters

  • Grotesque (2009)
  • The Girl Next Door (2007)*

A lot of people have been telling me to watch “The Girl Next Door” because it’s “So much more disturbing than *insert any movie on this list*, but I’ve seen it, and I disagree. Don’t get me wrong, the movie is horribly disturbing, but compared to some of its gorier brethren, it’s pretty tame. It’s the concept that fucks you up as opposed to actually showing blood and gore.

Most fucked up part: Implied blowtorch to the vagina

I still need to review this

2.5/5 Butters

  • Dogtooth (2009)*

A satirical foreign film about a father who keeps his family inside for their entire lives. He keeps them under the impression that outside is horrible and evil, and that they can never leave (think Tangled, but with a fuckton of incest.)

Most fucked up part: A girl bashes one of her teeth out with a handweight (if I remember correctly)

2.5/5 Butters

  • Eraserhead (1977)
  • Slaughtered Vomit Dolls (2006)
  • Melancholie der Engel (2009)
  • Megan Is Missing (2011)

This movie fucked me UP. I couldn’t sleep for days after watching it. I mean I knew it wasn’t a great movie, but about 2/3 of the way through this movie goes from laughably bad to straight up terrifying in 0.1 seconds. Of course, the YMS review cured my fear of it almost entirely, but the concept of what happened in the movie is still absolutely horrifying.

The most fucked up part: Probably when a girl gets buried alive in a plastic barrel….along with the corpse of her best friend.

I have reviewed this.

.5/5 Butters

  • Threads (1984)
  • Pink Flamingos (1972)
  • À l'Intérieur (2007)
  • Happiness (1998)
  • Funny Games (1997)*

This is one of my favorite horror movies of all time. What sets it apart from the others is the complete lack of blood and guts, and the fact that the villains break every single classic horror movie rule. It also explores the idea that we have become desensitized through the media. Also the main villain is scary as FUCK (in the Dutch version, although he’s fairly horrifying in the American remake as well.) What’s nice is that the American version is frame-by-frame the exact same movie, so you can watch either version and still get the full effect. No movie has ever made me lock my doors quite so quickly.

Most Fucked Up Part: I mean it’s kind of a spoiler but they kill the dog and then make the mom find it by playing "hot” and “cold.” Some other fucked up shit happens but I don’t wanna ruin it for you guys because it’s that good. 

I still need to review this. 

5/5 Butters

  • Faces of Death (1978)
  • Requiem For A Dream (2000)

It’s not even really a horror movie at all, but it’s one of my favorite movies of all time. It explores several types of addiction- drugs, love, food- and what they can make people do. If you’ve ever considered trying herion, watch Requiem For A Dream and I can almost guarantee you you’ll change your mind.

Most Fucked Up Part: Jared Leto’s gross elbow infection. 

I have reviewed this.

  • Visitor Q (2001)
  • Eden Lake (2008)
  • Philosophy of a Knife (2008)
  • Snowtown (2011)
  • Taxidermia (2006)
  • The Green Elephant (1999)
  • Cannibal (2006)
  • Man Bites Dog (1992)
  • American Mary (2013)

Pretty good if you don’t mind a little gore. It’s about a driven medical student who takes up doing body modification to pay her way through school. Then, when she’s date raped by her professor, she gets some pretty sick revenge and becomes one of the best body mod artists in her area. Girl power! (I think)

The Most Fucked Up Part: I mean there’s a dude with no arms and legs hanging from a meathook at one point. Girl Power!

3.5/5 Butters

  • Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1986)
  • Vase de Noces (1975)
  • Feed (2005)
  • Subconscious Cruelty (1999)
  • Where the Dead go to Die (2012)
  • Murder-Set-Pieces (2004)
  • Bad Boy Bubby (1993)
  • The Theatre Bizarre

A collaboration of 6 (I think) different directors put together 6 short films lazily strung together with some plot about a haunted movie theatre. It’s not really fair to judge the movie based on the “theatre” concept seeing as the theatre only exists to get the next short film rolling.
I’ll give you a hint: The first one is stupid, the second one is okay, the third one is disturbing as fuck, the fourth one is so fucking boring, the fifth one tries too hard to be “deep” and “artistic” and the sixth one is disgusting but the main chick’s nose is a fucking work of art and I need to know who her plastic surgeon is.

The most fucked up parts:
Short Film 1= A woman covered in frog slime
Short Film 2= Just lots of blood. 
Short Film 3= Lots of severed dick. Again. 
Short Film 4= A guy kills a deer who’s already dying
Short Film 5= Fetus juice in your eye can’t feel good
Short Film 6= Cannibalism and vomit.

If there’s any I need to add, feel free to let me know.

I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

And there is no word in the world that can define how I feel right now. It was perfect. A perfect mix of nostalgia, humor, adventure, excitement,…
I was sitting there feeling 8 years old again, back when I would go watch the films with my parents, it felt so good. I felt so free, I was flying (still am). Without a care in the world. Seeing my best friends on screen again, was a blessing.
Captain Jack, my first love, made me smile and giggle constantly. Johnny is magic. His one-liners are golden. But he was also tough and determind. My favorite captain. It was so wonderful. Irreverent, cunning, the best of the best.
Captain Barbossa was sublime. My god he has come so far and the side I saw of him today was truly amazing and touching. He made me cry
Captain Salazar: villains that have a fragile side to them are the most interesting ones and that’s exactly what he is. Javier plays him so perfectly. One of my favorite caracters of all time already!
The Turners: made me cry

conclusion: this movie was all I needed, all I could ever ask for. I’m still in shock, I think I need a few days to let it all settle. The story, the new and old characters, the ending, was pure brilliance. This is what it is all about. This movie gave me so much fuel so much energy so much nostalgia. 10000/10 would recommand. Go see it and be ready to enter an improved version of life

anonymous asked:

I see a lot of people talk about mary sues and they say different things a lot of the time. What IS a mary sue and how do I make sure I don't make one? im starting to write fanfiction and I'm really nervous people will call my ocs mary sues >A<;;;

This is quite a question to unpack, mainly because I have my own ever-changing definition of what a Mary Sue is.

Historically, “Mary Sue” is a reference to a Star Trek OC of the same name and codified the character trope: overly-perfect, lacking flaws, and having good relationships with all the writer’s favorite characters while anyone who doesn’t like them is shown to be wrong at best and villainous at worst. And while I think these qualities are still relevant in discussions of the Mary Sue archetype, I think what it all gets back to is simply… a flat, underdeveloped character.

Over time, different subsections of the Mary Sue have been identified, which might be what you’re seeing. But, as pointed out in this video…

… Mary Sues, as they were commonly seen when I was a young writer (generally following in the vein of My Immortal’s Ebony Darkness Demen’tia Raven Way), are far less prevalent in today’s world. Most young artists and writers have heard and/or seen enough about Mary Sues and how to not make them, that most don’t make these same mistakes.

So I’m going to advise you on how to write strong characters in general first, because it honestly doesn’t matter how implausible something is–in writing, you can probably make it work, as long as it’s internally consistent and thoughtfully written.

  • Your character should have realistic flaws stemming from their personality and/or past experiences that have an impact on them and the people around them. If a clumsy girl falls and her hot crush helps her up, did she even make an error? Also, this flaw shouldn’t disappear the moment the character is made aware of it. Habits are hard to break even when someone knows they’re bad. It’s also okay to let your character be legitimately wrong, and have that acknowledged in the story. Everyone makes mistakes! It doesn’t mean they’re a terrible person. (Unless you want them to be!)
  • Your character should take an active role in the plot. They should have stakes in the outcome of the conflict and motivation to get involved, even if they initially resist. This can come about in various ways, but it’s usually advisable to relate your character’s motivation to the message that you’re trying to get across.
  • Your character should grow and change. They should be challenged and have to re-examine their beliefs and motives, even if they are ultimately reaffirmed. Conflict is more than defeating the bad guy, after all. This goes hand-in-hand with giving them realistic flaws.
  • Show, don’t tell. If your character is exceptionally skilled at something, show them doing that thing with skill instead of informing the audience and then never actually showing them in action. If your character is the most dangerous assassin in the country, I want to see them assassinate someone!

In regards to things that are generally considered Mary Sue traits:

  • Tragic backstories are fine, as long as they don’t completely overtake your character’s personality. I personally love tragic backstories, but you should be aware that they have been a little overused and make sure that you’re working the tragedy into your character’s actions and motives. Remember, not everyone deals with tragedy in the same way, and just like a flaw doesn’t go away immediately, neither does trauma. 
  • Special powers are fine, as long as they’re internally consistent with the world that you’re working in. Just look at Avatar: The Last Airbender–you wouldn’t call Aang a Mary Sue because he can bend all the elements, as that is consistent with the world’s mythology.
  • In fanfiction, having an OC that’s related to or friends with canon characters is fine, as long as you take care in writing the canon character believably. I have seen so many amazing fanchildren OCs, and what really elevates these characters and makes them more memorable is the fact that they have believable interactions with canon characters.

I invite you to look through some of my tags for more tips and advice, since this is a fairly short list of general tips.

You do realize that Mark said that Darkiplier is an awful person right? He's only using you.

totally! i am very well aware of the fact that dark is manipulative and draws people in with a false sense of security. will that make me stop liking him? no, of course not. why? well, he is just a character after all.

every good story needs a villain, and in mark’s ‘story’, dark is the villain. dark is his alter ego, everything that mark is not. does that mean we’re supposed to hate the villain? well, no. there are plenty of characters out there who have dark intentions and yet we still like them.

take handsome jack from the borderlands series for instance. handsome jack, in my opinion, is a lot like dark. jack is full of charm and wit, but his aggressive behavior shows from time to time. jack’s manipulative to get what he wants and isn’t afraid to step on people to get there. which, leads me back to parallel with dark. jack is one of my favorite video game characters ever because of his overall character arc; you see him go from the hero to the villain through the prequel to the actual games.

i’m an english and creative writing major at the moment and to me, it’s just interesting to see character progression.

so in my opinion, i believe that every character has the potential to be redeemed. perhaps that it’s dark’s fear of abandonment that causes for his rage. that he’s just a hopeless romantic who’s just been shut out for so long that it’s morphed him into who he is. every villain’s gotta have motivation, right?

i hope this doesn’t come off as harsh or rude, because that is certainly not my intention! i understand that there are people who don’t like dark, or don’t like certain ways that dark is being taken. and that’s fine! i can totally respect that! but i just wanted to simply state my thoughts and feelings towards dark. ❤️

This is somehow both easier and more difficult than the other one. I mean, there are a few episodes that I know are my absolute favorites, but at the same time, I feel bad leaving certain episodes out. Well, I’ll do my best.

5 - My Brother’s Keeper

Choosing which episode to put here was probably the toughest. There are a lot of episodes that I love that I had to leave off this list. Picking which ones to exclude and which to put here at the bottom was tough.

Ultimately, though. My Brother’s Keeper just has so much going for it. Things could’ve been done better, of course, but what we have is enough. Spectra’s a terrifying antagonist, Jazz is my favorite human character and is A++++ in this episode, and I love the development Danny goes through. There’s just a lot to love about it, even if it wasn’t all fully realized.

4 - Control Freaks

While I still think this was a terrible season finale, as an individual episode, it’s great. Freakshow’s amazing, and I love seeing Sam and Tucker have to play the heroes in Danny’s absence. That staff is so interesting that I did an analysis of it entirely on its own.

Like My Brother’s Keeper, it could’ve taken things farther had it not been stuck trying to stick to that family friendly tone, but as it is, it’s great. Plus Ida Manson exists, which is a wonderful thing indeed.

3 - Public Enemies

I’m having trouble finding things to say about most of these because I already have gushed about them a ton in the past. I’ll do my best, though.

I just love the stakes in this episode. It takes things to a new level that we hadn’t seen before. We see the antagonist actually accomplish most of their goal. Wulf is amazing. The tone is amazing. We’ve got the best Cutsie Dannys ever. Heck, this episode finally kicked off my analysis of Danny’s character. I love it. Two thumbs up.

2 - D-Stabilized

It’s from season 3. I don’t think I need to say more.

But I will.

The dialogue is fantastic, Valerie’s development is fantastic, Danielle’s still one of my favorite characters, Danny grows a lot, Vlad goes back to be an intimidating and interesting villain. And all of this is in season 3.

The scene between Valerie and Danny when he convinces her to help him save Danielle is especially great. It’s like the characters came back after a ton of crappy episodes, and had the series been allowed to continue from there, I think it could’ve had a comeback. But alas, it was not meant to be.

I still love it on its own, though, and it’s the one episode I’d leave mostly unchanged from season 3.

1 - Reign Storm

I wrote an entire post about why this is my favorite episode. I don’t think this is a surprise to anyone.

I feel like I rambled less in this list, but like I said, I’ve gushed about most of these plenty already. The only exception is D-Stabilized, which I’ll cover when I get to it.

Like I said, there are others that I wish I’d been able to include, but I’m happy with this. And I have no idea how to close out, so I’ll just leave it there.


Hello everyone! Welcome to night six of this year’s Wreck-it Ralph Pin Post Month!

 Tonight’s pin is the limited edition, DSSH, Villain Stained Glass Series, second series, King Candy, wreck-it ralph, LE 200 pin. 

Ah, the villain pin sets. The times when Disney brings together all the baddest of their animated bad’s, and makes something magnificent with them. To be perfectly honest I was a little surprised to find out that a second stained glass villains pin set was made, but I’m not disappointed in the slightest. Compared to the first series, these pins focused on the glass more then the metal border, which was the opposite case in the first series. 

Both series resulted in marvelous looking pins of villains we love to hate, including our dear King Candy here who has been apart of both the first and second series. I love how well the light shines through the glass, and well as how you can still plainly see King Candy standing there whether there is light shining or not. This just so happens to be one of my favorite pins in my collection, though it is also the most delicate. As a result it rarely leaves my pin trading bag, as I’d be heartbroken if this beautiful pin ever broke. 

Time to post another favorite shot, taken at Anime Boston. I’ve shared this picture before, but it just has to go on this page, too. Lyon is my favorite Fire Emblem villain ever. He’s written amazingly in both Ephraim’s and Eirika’s routes (seriously, the people who only play one route and not the other are fools) and I’m an absolute sucker for the jackass types with an inferiority complex. 

I LOVE wearing this cosplay. It’s so light and easy to move around in, and it flows so beautifully when I walk and move. I look at this and can’t even believe I managed to hammer it out in only a month. While there are minor things that still need tweaking, I’m very happy with how this cosplay turned out, and I will be wearing him a lot for the foreseeable future!

top 5 anime of all time?

For this top 5 I feel like I need a disclaimer at the beginning: this is a top 5 in order of how much I’ve loved and how still fond I am of these anime. I picked them from the pool of the anime I’ve watch (which are quite a few, but I’m surely missing some of the latest hits). So these are MY all time favorite anime, I’m not saying they are over all the best in the anime world :) 

1. Neon Genesis Evangelion. This is a choice that I guess won’t find any resistance. Because this is the BEST anime of all time. It has a lot of flaws, it’s often confusing (even disturbing sometimes), but what I like the most is that this is not an anime about fighting monsters to protect humanity, it’s about people. It’s about how flawed and full of contradictions we all are, about how we are naturally driven to create connections with each other and we just can’t escape them. It’s about how these connections will either save or ruin us. It’s about pain in its purest form, about sacrifice, about fear, about emotional struggle, about hope. It’s about how trusting another person is the bravest choice we could ever make. And it’s a masterpiece you should all watch.

2. Haikyuu. Well, of course. I can’t even find the words to describe how attached I am to this anime. It’s the anime that, if I have to chose one to watch forever, I’ll pick. There’s something about its story, about his characters, about its messages that it’s making it impossible for me to let go. It brings me joy, it warms my heart and has awakened my creativity spirit. Because I only write about things that are the closest to my heart, and now I couldn’t write about any other universe, even if I tried. <3

3. Sailor Moon. This was my very first anime and I still love it with my whole heart, so much that irl it’s the anime people always associate me with. I’m currently watching the reboot and I’m surprised of how good it still is. Not to mention the outstanding representation of the LGBT+ community that it provides. I don’t know why, but people tend to forget how it actually features a canon F/F couple and one of the girls, my beloved Haruka, kisses (and it’s not hinted, it’s a fully displayed kiss) girls all the time. In a romantic way. I lost count of how many girls questioned their sexuality just by looking at her. She was actually my first experience whit a gay character and I’m so glad I did, because she and the anime itself taught me how girls can be the strongest but mostly that if a person makes your hear beat, the gender doesn’t really matter.

4. Wolf’s Rain. This one hits right in the feels. “They say there’s no such place as Paradise. Even if you search to the ends of the Earth, there’s nothing there. No matter how far you walk, it’s always the same road. It just goes on and on. But, in spite of that, why am I so driven to find it? A voice calls to me…It says, “Search for Paradise.” still, this is my all time favorite anime quote and the very essence of what this anime is about. Just do me a favor, watch it.

5. Death Note. I mean, this one goes without presentations. I love it because, of course after NGE, it’s the most thought provoking anime ever and you find yourself wondering what you would have done in that situation. It’s an anime where the distinction between good and evil doesn’t really exist and that makes you question who the true hero is…the one who calls himself that or the one who supposedly is the villain?

 - Special mention for: Cowboy Bebop, Free!, and Boku No Hero Academia, that I recently started but it already stole my heart. 

- Bonus: Light (Death Note), Kiba (Wolf’s Rain), Prince Diamond (Sailor Moon) and Rin (Free!) share the same voice actor and I’m not telling that there’s a pattern but I think I might be in love with this man since they all are my favorite characters in each show (well, Light not so much but you get the point here). 

Thank you for your message!

My review of Riposte

This review is my original content, so please don’t Riposte it.

The basics: 9/10. Other than the really weird animation style of the villain, this episode’s practically flawless, with fantastic action sequences as well as a wonderful new character.

(I’ve tagged this as #mlspoilers and I’ve made it very clear that I won’t be holding back on here, so I hope this is sufficient warning.)

Keep reading

Have you ever watched Danny Phantom?

Of course!

One of my first fandoms!

I was obsessed with the show. There’s toooooo much potential there. Dan is still my favorite villain ever (The Ultimate Enemy is my favorite episode)

I started reading fanficiton with this show so yeah, it still has a place in my heart.

I finally bought the Dairanger box set and began watching it. I honestly thought that Daigo would be the quiet stuck up "I'm better than you" character but I was so shocked to find out that he's the opposite, so far this is a really good season I love it

Oh, it’s a fantastic season and one I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who is getting into Super Sentai!  It’s one of the best examples of the genre from one of my favorite eras.  Mind you, I got into Super Sentai in the mid-1990s so Gosei Sentai Dairanger was still fairly easy to find on VHS in local Japanese grocery stores (Thank you Fukuya may you Rest In Retail Peace).

I was so amazingly psyched when I found out it was the second release on DVD from Shout! Factory that I immediately pre-ordered it.  Every character in that series is amazing and likable (even Kou after a while) and the villains are fantastic and just so damn creepy at times.

 I seriously think Shohei Shibata is one of the best child actors ever! Akomaru is probably the best evil child villain I have ever seen in Super Sentai combining the sheer malevolence of a truly heinous antagonist with that petty cruelty you only find in children. 

As for Daigo, his story with Kujaku is one of the best subplots in the entire series.  I love the two of them together!  They really work together and I was constantly hoping for the best for them.  

As a final note, is Ryuseioh not just the coolest mecha-dragon ever?  I just love the way it moves as it flies!

I am so glad you picked this series up and even more happy that you are enjoying it!  It’s one of the absolute classics in my opinion!


Okay so first of all let me get out of the way the fact that “how dynamic everything looks with the simple ink lines” was, at the time I got this ask, one of the most specific compliments I have ever gotten on my art (and I think it may still be) and I’m very happy with it because the standard compliment I’ve been getting for years that has anything to do with how the style looks is “certainly unique."  I don’t even know what that means.

Also the long set of tags ladytemeraire wrote on her reblog of the last post actually did influence how these turned out.

Okay!  So Dartz is actually my favorite GenFirst Yugioh villain, as a villain.  (I love all of them, but he scares me the most.)  Most of them are very personal, with sympathetic goals, or they’re Zorc (who, you know, is an eldritch abomination.) 

And then there’s Dartz, who basically starts his own little cult and can smooth-talk your head into the most twisted things while making them sound quite reasonable and logical.  (That doesn’t mean Alister’s not still arguing inside his own head.)  He’s terrible and horrifying, and I love him.

And Alister’s coat is my favorite coat in basically all of Yugioh.  It’s black.  It has those strappy things everywhere.  It’s black. I want it desperately.

Here’s the tag!

B5, c5, and d5 for Stan, Ford, and Angie in the magical kids au

At first I was going to say this was disguise them? But by the time I finished I one hundred percent decided this is the Magical kids when they are still magic heroes but actually match their hero selves because they’re also actual teens now. Angie and Stan are about ready to transform over something (Maybe a villain is at their school? Or someone just really got on their nerves) Meanwhile Ford is distracted by something with his tongue. (I’m going to say it’s something to do with science. Either that or he’s looking for something to avoid the trouble Angie and Stan are about to get themselves into.) E

Either way I think this is my favorite Stan and Angie face pair ever it’s hilarious.

Also, I used c4 instead of c5, hope you don’t mind I wanted to avoid repeats. Also, I felt like c4 meshed with the others a little better and made a funnier scene.
