the-duel

What I don’t understand about a lot of high/middle scholar protagonists, is that when they’re thrown into an entirely new life with these new superpowers as “the chosen one”, they’re still like “I can’t just become the chosen one! I have to go to school!!” and horribly struggle to go to school and save the world.

I would have jumped at the chance to just disappear and just train with superpowers when I was in high/middle school. I had zero hind-sight for what profession I wanted, and I didn’t give a shit about 99% of the people I hung out with. And think about it, spending half of your time saving lives and fighting evil eats away at study time, what’s the point of staying in school when you’re gonna retain maybe 10% of the information they give you because you haven’t slept for 3 days from fighting demons and trying to make class.

While education is super important, so is punching bad guys in the face.

Eddy begs on knees telling Rolf that he is sorry. But, he’s still only giving Rolf what he wants to hear. 

Great angle, Amazing coloring. This duel is going to be really interesting.

Also, let’s analyze Rolf’s outfit. He is wearing what looks to be the skull from a cow. He has shorts and these shoes on. Nothing like his trademark attire. Rolf and Eddy’s attire closely resemble one another. Rolf wants to differ completely from Eddy. This fight is for himself and to get back what he lost.

It’s unfair how Eddy never learns what he did wrong in the episode. Though he understands that it had something to do with the fish ball along with Rolf’s customs. Eddy and Rolf come from different cultures where Rolf does not know how to talk things out. His family resolves things by fighting. Something that Eddy is against as we learn through this duel.

“If this is true did you bring the cupcakes of sorriness?”

Eddy turns to his friends.

Ed and Edd shrug unable to help Eddy.

Ed’s suggestion from earlier would have helped everything. It’s not Eddy’s fault for disregarding the cupcakes. Nobody has a clue to what Rolf’s traditions and customs are. Eddy could have gotten out of this with cupcakes.

Eddy prepares himself for what is to come. He is scared to deny that he does not have cupcakes. 

I can picture this helpless Eddy as the child we see in Every Which Way But Ed. Eddy was always afraid that if he didn’t do what his brother told him to do he’d hurt him. Eddy has a difficult time trusting people. He is standoffish when someone is nice to him because he has never been exposed to that. 

Eddy does not deserve this, but evidently he learns to accept fate. That’s the sad part about Eddy’s character. He doesn’t know how to stand up for himself because nobody believes him. 

He has the worst time in school because teachers automatically believe that he is the one who has done trouble. Eddy never bothers to talk himself out from situations since he has been blamed so much that it becomes a regular thing.

You can tell he’s just waiting for the first hit and even telling himself ‘it may hurt, don’t show it, that’s what he wants to see.’

It’s heartbreaking whenever analyzing the abuse from Eddy’s past. It was wrong for Eddy to grow up this way. I don’t blame his parents because they knew and put an end to all this. Only, Eddy being too young has made things difficult for his parents to explain why Bro was they way he was. 

Eddy has been searching for answers. Seeking out Bro was not the best route, but he was able to learn the truth and finally expose who his brother was and how that relationship impacted the way he thinks to everyone he has grown up.

Hayden Christensen on his lightsaber training

Ren held his lightsaber, poised to strike. “I could kill you right now. But there is another way.” Breathing hard, Rey looked up in disgust at the man looming above her. “You’re a monster.” “No. You need a teacher.” He was beseeching and insistent all at once. “I can show you the ways of the Force!” Slowly she shook her head. “The Force?” […]  A long moment passed, in which Ren sensed a change in the air, a change in her.

Then she opened her eyes and attacked, viciously.
