Here’s a thing that needs to be said that a lot of people who are supposed to be professional can’t seem to grasp:
You can control what story you tell; You cannot control how it’s interpreted.
And you shouldn’t.
Art - all art - is subject to the audience’s interpretation. That is what makes it art. No one’s take of it is invalid.
To mock or dismiss anyone’s take on what’s in a character’s heart or behind their motivations is both in poor taste and lacks respect for the fact that storytelling is interactive. Communication, by its very definition, requires at least two participants relaying and interpreting information. There are real people and minds and hearts on the receiving end. Dismissing their viewpoints is needlessly cruel and diminishes the meaning and impact behind a story.
For my part, for my little narrow subset of the creative world in fan fiction, I will forever openly welcome interpretations and head canons about my stories and my characters even if they are contrary to my intent. Any creator who cannot inspire the imagination of their audience is an utter failure. And the idea that any writer, actor, show-runner, or other storyteller would discourage or mock their own fans for the creativity they inspired utterly astounds and disgusts me. As audiences, we deserve better than that and anyone who does not provide us with it loses my respect.
Touka and Yoshimura talk about humans and ghouls coexisting after he sees her in pain from eating human food. After their conversation, Yomo comes into the cafe, and is very awkward :’)
Tsukiyama is standing outside of the room Kaneki is changing in. When Kaneki opens the door to quickly throw his clothes out, Tsukiyama freaks out. He grabs the shirt and comes close to sniffing it, but he resists. He then starts his monologue about Savarin and gourmet food, but then Kaneki throws out his second piece of clothing and Tsukiyama loses it, finally sniffing the clothes and doing the infamous squat XD
The ghoul restaurant scene begins with Tsukiyama saying “Shall I sing?”, and it was fantastic, with the ghoul restaurant members singing and dancing along. I think the song is called “Tres Bien Asobi”. Madam A was played by the same actress who did Itori, and I think (not 100% sure) that Kimi’s actress was also playing one of the restaurant members.
Real life Taro really looks like Taro. Him throwing the fake limbs that he cut off the food critic guy to the members was pretty fun to watch.
Kaneki breathes in the paralyzing gas directly in the restaurant instead of out in the waiting room.
Sasaki is really nailing it as Tsukiyama. He’s just as dramatic as Mamoru Miyano was in the anime (he even sounds like Mamoru at times), and you can clearly feel it through his acting. Plus, that ear biting XD
You’re sitting in the theatre. Everything is perfect. It’s accurate, it’s visually stunning, everyone is on point. It’s a perfect adaption. The title flies on screen.
Deep voice: Fullmetal Alchemist
Everyone in the theatre:(slightly different intonation) Fullmetal Alchemist.
An Auror who saved the world and one of the most brilliant Chaser are a married couple. Of course they would tease each other to the press at some point of their life. This was slightly inspired by the tv show Modern Family.
