there goes my favorite character on the show

It’s hard to decide what my favorite Steve Trevor moment is between “She’s taking all the fire, let’s go!” And “Diana, shield!”. I mean both show how awesome he is as a character. One shows how quickly he adapts to Diana’s incredible abilities. He goes from “oh no she’s gonna die if she charges out into the battle” to “oh, she can stop bullets? Ok cool, let’s go then.” And the other shows that even in the midst of the chaos when the Germans were attacking the Amazons and he barely had any idea what was happening, he paid enough attention to the fighting style Diana grew up with to emulate it in a way he knew she’d understand.

I just love Steve Trevor, ok?

Hunter x Hunter (2011)

Final Rate: S
Cry-o-meter: 4/5

Positives

+First of all, holy shit
+The protagonists are extremely likable, well-written, and complex. 
+I’ve never been more invested in a cast of characters 
+The villains are also likable, well-written, and complex. I can’t believe this show threw the most irredeemable ruthless killer at me and then made me cry over him.
+A well paced, slow-burn story that starts deceptively lighthearted and then gets dark and violent and genuinely upsetting
+Stellar character development. Everyone gets a turn to be the antihero and I fucking love it.
+Actions have actual consequences and the show isn’t afraid to kill off characters
+Intense and creative fight scenes
+The Phantom Troupe arc was dope as all hell
+Kurapika is the accumulation of all of my least favorite tropes but it’s played completely straight and he’s my favorite 
+The art gradually increases in quality. It starts off kinda mediocre but by the end of the show it’s great
+It progresses almost like an RPG. The characters start off level one, with not a whole lot of skills or punch, and by the end they’re level 100 or so. The main characters don’t start off powerful (with maybe a small exception to Killua).
+The characters train? They actually train to get better? This is such a little thing but you can actually watch their progress.
+That *iconic* shot when Killua goes full-electric mode for the first time
+It’s not cheesy! it’s not! It seems like the show that would be really cheesy with a lot of angry screaming but it’s not!
+No filler! Everything is plot relevant!

Negatives
-It’s been on hiatus for a while because the creator is dealing with back problems and people aren’t all that hopeful about it continuing 
-I need more Kurapika! The last clip of him at the very end just left me wanting to see more of him. The next arc in the manga is actually focused on Kurapika and Leorio but it won’t be animated for a while…
-The Chimera Ant arc probably could have been cut down in length, and a lot of the character designs were goofy. It changed and became better, but still. 
-The Alluka mini-arc didn’t really do it for me. She didn’t have any character depth, she came out of nowhere, and it didn’t make me feel those sweet sweet emotions the show usually provides
-Hisoka pops a boner for a 12 year old 
-”sorry but you take second place to alluka lol” b i t ch after everything you’d been through together?
-Unfinished, for now.

Final Comments: Holy fuck I wasn’t expecting to like this show as much as I did. Easily joined my list of personal favorites. I honestly can’t even say anything but if you love that slow burn frog-in-a-frying-pan type of show then you’ll love it. The pacing is so good, I love everyone, honestly please give it a chance and don’t get turned off if the first few episodes aren’t your style. 
Hey Voltron Fandom, what the fuck?

I’m going to get straight to the point, you guys are self-destructive and are going to kill the fandom over your petty arguments and stupid self-entitlement. There hasn’t been a day since the beginning of the fandom that everything has just been peaceful for once (and I’ve been here since it’s birth) You all should be ashamed of yourselves, fighting online and hurting real people over fiction (this is not specifically towards ships btw) And I’m putting my foot down at all of this bullshit and trying to stop it

This is pretty lengthy so everything is under the cut

July’s Featured Game: SLARPG

DEVELOPER(S): Bobby “ponett” Schroeder
ENGINE: RPGMaker VX Ace 
GENRE: RPG, Fantasy
SUMMARY: SLARPG is a short, turn-based RPG following the story of Melody Amaranth, a kindhearted but meek transgender fox who’s decided to learn healing magic and become a paladin. She’s joined by her adventurous girlfriend Allison, as well as their friends Claire (a sarcastic, rule-bending witch)(she is also trans) and Jodie (a dependable, somewhat motherly knight). Over the course of the story, our inexperienced heroes will meddle with forces beyond their control and find themselves responsible for the fate of their quaint little hometown. They’ll also fight some spherical frogs, travel to a forgotten land in the sky, befriend a robot or two, and anger the local librarian. But that should go without saying.

I cope ship, okay? I’ve been through abuse in my life, so I have my unhealthy coping ships

In my head, it goes something like “if my favorite characters are going through the same situation and they are okay, then I can be okay too”

It doesn’t really make sense, but it helps me, so there it goes

Sometimes its also some sort of self harm. As in, triggering myself on porpouse because I believe i deserve it

But I don’t do it publicly. How I cope with my trauma is my own personal business, between me and those close to me

I have no right to expose other survivors to something that is most likely a trigger to then, nor show it to other people and let them thing it’s an okay thing to do

So really

Stop using the whole “cope shipping” as an excuse for people being open and proud about it. If you are cope shipping, I understand where you are coming from, but you need to understand that you are exposing other survivors and may be compromising their own healing process

Be more compassionate

If you aren’t a survivor and aren’t using them to cope, and keep using other survivors as a piggyback ride for you to keep producing your nasty content, i hope you stub your toes on the corners of your house every morning

Six Times Voltage Inc Tugged at my Heartstrings

I’ve been playing Voltage games for about four years now, and I have to say, there were moments in certain routes that made me Feel Things™. Generally, Voltage games aren’t really known for being cynical or overly emotional. Heck, their games, while having some mature content, mostly have an optimistic feel to them. However, there were some moments in particular that stood out to me—those scenes were written powerfully enough to shake me to the core.

I have to admit, it was difficult for me to select a few moments from hundreds of routes, but I tried my best to narrow it down as much as I could.

Disclaimer:

  • I limited it to one character per game to avoid repetition.
  • I haven’t played every Voltage game (or route for that matter). The moments I’ve chosen only come from the games I’ve played.
  • I didn’t include SLBP because I only started getting into it recently (plus I don’t know too much about the other lords to make solid conclusions about them lmao).
  • This is all my personal opinion, so that means you probably won’t share the same views as I do, which is cool (I’d actually appreciate it if you told me what your favorite moments were :D).

Anyhow, let’s begin! (long post below):

Chrom: VA Matthew Mercer

You know, yesterday’s post was pretty intence. I do like that I was able to get some frustrations of my chest rather than let them boil under my skin, and based on the reception of that post a lot of people seem to agree with me and what I pointed out. But one I want to avoid becoming is little miss bringdown. So I decided to brighten up the mood a bit by delving into the realm of voice acting.

And who else better to start with than with my real life senpai, Matthew Mercer.

God, he’s so gorgeous, even in real life… 

Originally posted by kasugano

*clears throat* Anyway, let’s take a look at some of the characters our dearest has leant his lovely voice to.

Now Fire Emblem fans likely already know he has voiced a few characters in recent games, including two of my favorites, Chrom and Shigure. You also likely already know from a previous post that he also voices Yusuke in Persona 5. Plus, any Overwatch player already knows that he voices McCree.

But now it’s time to list off some of his other roles.

To start and build off that gif, he actually voices

prince Diamond from Sailor Moon (or prince Demande if you’re watching Sailor Moon Crystal). And considering this anime is rather old, it goes to show just how long he’s been in the business.

And that’s not the only long standing anime he’s been a part of. He’s also voiced

Trafalgar Law from One Piece.

And as it that’s enough to surprise you, he’s also voiced

Shukuro Tsukishima from Bleach. I don’t know much about him, since I haven’t watched Bleach in years, but he is one handsome man.

In fact, Matthew seems to have a bit of a habit playing characters who are pretty handsome. 

For one, he voices someone from one of my favorite anime:

Joker from Black Butler.

There’s also

Leon S. Kennedy from Resident Evil 6.

We also have

Lao from Xenoblade Chronicles X.

And to top off the handsome men he likes to voice, he’s voiced

Jai Chong from Dynasty Warriors. And I’ve heard the way he voices ths guy, and I can now say that Matthew can do one hell of a Sephiroth impression.

He also voices

Taishi Ci, but I don’t really hear people talking about him, so moving on.

Now these next two are definitely going to satisfy certain fans. For any Phoenix Wright fans, he voices

Nahyuta Sadmadhi in the most recent game.

And to fans of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, he voices

Jotaro Kujo.

But Matthew isn’t above voicing smaller roles. He voices

Fei Long from Street Fighter and

Cor from Final Fantasy 15.

But one that surprised me was learning that he voices

Skelter Helter and

Bishop from No More Heroes 2. I swear I never noticed this. Just goes to show how good his vocal range is.

But these last two are really note worthy.

Turns out Yusuke is not the first Persona character he’s voiced, as he also voices

Kanji Tatsumi from Persona 4. Now based on what I saw he voices Kanji in the animated series not the actual game, but I doubt it’s that big of a deal.

And the last voice we have for our lovely Matthew is

Levi from Attack on Titan. I actually just recently heard Levi’s voice from watching a video, and it does fit very well for him. I really got to work on getting back to watching Attack on Titan so i can hear more of his performance.


As you can see, Matthew Mercer really has a wealth of experience when it comes to voice acting to have so many roles under his belt and can achieve a large range of tones and fluxes with his voice.

Now do you guys see why this man is my real life senpai?

And before anyone comments; yes, I am aware that he is currently engaged to someone else. But, hey, I’m still young and i got a lot of time and patience for the future.

Just you wait Matthew Mercer, you will be mine one day.

anonymous asked:

Hi, I'm going through some tough family things right now and I was wondering if you could do comfort headcanons for the Paladins? I love your blog, it's amazing!

OMG HOW DID I MISS THIS IN MY INBOX, ANON I’M SO SORRY. Know I’m always open to talk, you can just private message me, or drop an anon in my inbox. That goes for everyone, my inbox is always open.

– Ryan

Pidge:

• Comfort with Pidge would take many forms
• She’ll hold you until you’ve had enough
• She’ll marathon your favorite shows with you, coming up with canon and headcanon reasons for why characters do the stupid things they do
• She’ll talk your ear off, or listen to you if you’d like to talk
• Constant sleepovers (w/ bonus comfort cuddles from Matt)
• (Who doesn’t want bonus Matt cuddles??)
• But when you’re in the castle and you need the comfort, you know Pidge’s door is always open for you
• She’ll teach you about engineering and mechanics
• You and she’ll start a project, though you only have a vague idea of what you’re creating
• It’s not until you’re indenting thin strips of metal that you realize it’s a music box
• Although it was complex, Pidge’s instructions made it seem so easy
• You have that music box to this day, and you wind it up right before you go to bed

Keith:

• Keith handles conflicting emotions on a routine basis
• He’s pretty savvy in ways for calming yourself, and helping others, once he knows more about that person
• He’s the first person you go to when you’re feeling down, or stressed, and Keith always knows the right way to take care of you
• Whether it’s with a long talk, a cup of tea, or some exercise, he’s always there for you
• But the one thing you didn’t expect him to do to calm you down was sing
• The first time it happened you were confused, and you didn’t know what to say
• But Keith must have thought you’d fallen asleep, and that’s why he continued to sing
• The next day, when you asked him about it, he denied it
• But the more you begged him, the more he caved until finally, he made you promise not to tell anyone, and he’d sing for you
• So after that, Keith would lay with you, holding you, comforting you
• And his voice would carry a song that would be etched into your soul for the rest of your life
• Also surprise affectionate Keith w/ kisses and cuddles and strong arms = super security blanket yes

Lance:

• Overworried baby is overworried
• Constantly asks you what he can do for you
• Lance would comfort you, and allow you your time, but he doesn’t like to wallow in the sorrow
• He feels it won’t heal you
• He knows that depression and bouts of sorrow are hard to overcome
• But he also knows how to overcome them
• Comfort from Lance would be in the form of socks on the training hall floor
• With loud music playing
• And he’s not letting you leave until you dance with him
• So the music starts playing
• It’s more like a slip-n’-slide than anything else
• But you’re laughing, and so is he, and nothing in the moment could be more perfect

Hunk: 

• Comfort with Hunk is usually in the form of food
• But mostly in the form of bear hugs
• Bc who else is better at bear hugs than my Little Bear??
• He’s immediately scooped you up into his arms
• And he cradles you
• And his arms are just locked securely around you
• And it feels so warm
• Tbh he’d probably carry you around like that
• But comfort would be baking butter cakes together
• Then eating hot butter cakes together
• Then lARGE CUDDLE FESTS
• AND HONESTLY, THIS IS HOW HE’D BE REGARDLESS HE’S PRECIOUS

Shiro:

• Comfort from Shiro is silent and understanding
• He’ll sit beside you, holding your hand, and listening to you
• He might not be creative like Pidge or Lance, nor as energetic
• But he’ll comfort you the best he could
• And that’s with his assurance that you will be alright
• That you are safe, and that he will beside you with every step you take
• For that week Shiro would sleep with you
• Holding you against him, and being in his arms, feeling his solid body against yours was such a security blanket
• Sure, Shiro would try to cheer you up, because he can’t stand to see you so sad
• But he doesn’t know anything other than dad jokes 
• And at that point, none of us are sure that’s what we really want
• But you secretly like it

Notes From Someone Who Grew Up With An Autistic Brother

My brother is autistic. And if you’ve never met anyone with autism , you might be misinformed about how autistic people are.


My brother is NOT:

* Stupid
* Unwilling to learn
* Misbehaved
* A ‘forever child ’

My brother is a smart MAN. He’s gonna be 22(?!?! I’m crying he’s so big now I’m so proud ?) next week on the 13th .

Anyway here’s some things I want you to know about my brother Josh , his autism , AND HOW IT DOES NOT ALL MAKE HIM A BURDEN OR A PROBLEM OR ANY LESS OF A GREAT PERSON
( if you don’t like my brother or autistic folks , fight me )

( FIGHT ME, I MEAN IT, I’LL SWING ON YA RIGHT NOW DENISE)


- Firstly ya gotta know autism is a spectrum and it affects everyone differently so this isn’t a go-to post for every autistic person / curious person


- Second , autism affects social skills.
People with autism are more likely to have social anxiety, have speech impediments , and tend to function poorly in crowds .

But!!! If you work really hard to become friends with someone with autism ? They’re probably gonna love you for life?

My brother is shy as hell but if you are patient and are nice to him and listen to him when he talks he’s gonna respect you so much?

People tend to interrupt my brother, he stutters a lot when he talks and repeats himself. But if you show enough respect and let him say what he needs to , he’ll like that.

And once you’re friends ? He info dumps so much on you that you forget he’s a shy mess in public .( get him going about Power Rangers and he’s absolutely adorable he gets so detailed and so pumped ! )

Honestly just be nice enough to spend quiet time getting to know what they like and what makes them comfortable and they’ll warm up to you.


I remember the first conversation I ever had with my brother was about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
I was like five? He was four. Until that day he didn’t really talk to me. But it was rainy that morning , mom was still asleep and dad was at work . Josh was in his room watching the show when I wandered in with my cereal bowl in hand. He glanced at me , and quietly goes “ Wanna watch ? It’s funny! There’s a real smart guy who I think you’ll like. ”

And so, I sit down and a few minutes later I’m listening to my brother gush over characters and plot and bad guys and at one point he hugged me and said “ Thanks for listenin’, mom and dad don’t”


And from that day on , I tried harder to get to know my brother. He’s a sweetheart who loves unusual trivia , mysteries, animals ( no really he’s got books on animal trivia ) and watches everything from historical documentaries to fan theories on his favorite shows.

HE INTRODUCED ME TO BLEACH, HE GOT ME INTO ANIME YOU GUYS

Honestly I’ve bonded so much with him over shows and characters and I’ve learned a lot about him by watching his reactions over the years.

I have a lot of feelings about Dragon Ball Z and the Ninja Turtles because those two shows were what my brother and I first watched together , and we had such deep chats during commercials .


My brother relates to Michelangelo and Raphael the most because he says ’ I get Raph, you know? He doesn’t know how to ….how to say….how to feel out loud, right? He doesn’t know the rules to feelings. And Mikey’s lonely because he just wants people to like him for himself but it’s hard because the world sees him as wrong even though it’s not his fault and he didn’t want to be different. I feel like that because people… People look at me like they want me to be this one thing , and I can’t be , so they’re mad and disappointed. I’m not normal to them , but I…I mean ? I’m normal for me! This is my normal, and everyone is normal in a special way. “


During Dragon Ball Z, he suddenly goes :

” Do …do you think people would … You think if they could see the world the way I do….you think they’d pick having autism? I know everyone without it thinks it’s bad, but … But sometimes I like being autistic. I like the way I notice background noise , or the details on someone’s face, or all the ways something feels. I dunno I think maybe I get to know the world a lot better ? “


- Emotional difficulty.

My brother has trouble expressing and reading emotions , that’s true. But he understands them. And he taught me a lot of lessons.

My brother gets angry with himself a lot because he can’t communicate what he needs, but he tries super hard not to hurt anyone with his anger. He’ll throw a tantrum in his room , but he avoids other people until he’s calm enough not to just blindly lash out.

And when he’d bicker with my sister , and things got physical ( like siblings fights do ) he was always very careful not to hit her. Sometimes he’d lightly slap her arm or hand if she hit him , but he didn’t raise a fist to her. And he’d just let her work out her anger and then hug her when she was done.

’ I know you weren’t upset at me and it’s okay to be upset , but don’t hurt anyone when you’re upset anymore , you don’t think right when you’re mad. ’

- Hyper focusing is a thing and sometimes it’s no fun to deal with.

Tv portrays it as cute hobbies or interests but it’s also times when my brother couldn’t sleep because the number of tree branches outside his window changed. It’s my brother not being able to relax unless his collection of comfort toys are all on his bed.

It’s my brother breaking down in tears because his lucky childhood lion stuffed animal was falling apart and he was convinced he wasn’t going to have any more good days in his life.
( my grandma mended it it’s ok)

My brother binges shows all day and doesn’t remember to eat sometimes.

Hyperfocusing can be cutesy but it can also be very serious .


- Hyper Sensitivity is weird because some days ? My brother is fine and doesn’t care what he wears or what he eats. But other days he won’t wear anything too scratchy , or he won’t eat anything too crunchy , or he won’t leave the house because the wind is too much.

I’m used to it , but to my childhood neighbours my brother seems eccentric and bizarre .

- Physical Affection


ALWAYS. ASK.FIRST.WITH.AUTISTIC.PEOPLE.


I never hug my brother unless I ask him first or he initiates it. If I hugged him without permission , he’d get a panic attack and freeze up. He just doesn’t like surprise touch.

But once he lets you hug him ? It’s the best! He gives such affectionate hugs and honestly for a minute in his arms my depression is cured.


Just ask first to grab their hand or tap their shoulder or pat their head. It gives them more control over their environment and it shows you respect them.


- Don’t try to correct their stims or coping mechanisms.


SERIOUSLY I’VE SEEN PEOPLE DO THIS SHIT TO MY BROTHER

My brother wrings his hands together and makes noises to relive stress or work off extra energy, and he also talks to himself.( usually an ongoing role play in his head )


A lot of autistic people do things like this. It’s called 'stimming’. I don’t understand why running his fists against his forehead eases his anxiety when he’s upset, but I don’t tell him not to do it because that’s how his brain tells him to calm down.


If you take away their stimming, you take away their normal way of dealing with stress and emotions . Let them stim , maybe try to lessen the damage if it’s a harmful stim ( biting fingers, pulling hairs, knocking head against things ) ,but let them stim!


And!!! Stims!!! CHANGE!!!!

My brother used to say things four times when he was upset because his nickname is four letters ( his full name is Joshua ) and the way he explained it was ” if I hear why I’m mad four times it gives me four chances to settle down “


He doesn’t do that anymore. Now he just repeats the words ” It’s stupid , I’m stupid for being mad “ until he calms down.

In public his stimming is different - he’ll twist a corner of his shirt in his hands or hum under his breath or nod a lot.

When he’s super anxious he paces endlessly and can’t seem to move fast enough to please himself. Sometimes he’ll just run through the house until he’s calm.

I’ve seen my own dad tell him not to pace !

It calms him down and it’s not hurting anyone let him pace jfc


-They don’t always tell you but they listen

My brother knows the rude things people say about him. He listens to people talking to try and learn how to talk better , and he hears . He hears the insults , the jokes. He knows the math teacher thinks he’s a retard. He knows the other kids make fun of his stutter. He sat in the lunchroom and listened to those around him making fun of him.

He KNOWS.
And he avoids being friends with anyone who’d mock him while he was a mere fifteen feet away.

Anyway please be kind to autistic people and their families .

But also be looking out for autistic people who don’t have good families,whose families are ashamed of their autism.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations

Okay, so, I’m probably going to be talking about this a lot since it’s like, super amazing. A lot of fans have been pondering and contemplating things, and these are my personal opinions on it all. I’m just doing this before this spectacular plot unfolds and reviewing it so far. I guess this is gonna be kind of long?? I’m not sure, anyway here’s a something some of the fans have been talking about it.


1. How long is it going to last? 

Since Naruto was out for a very good fifteen years, a lot of people expect the same from Boruto, but a lot of people (judging from the opening scene) believe that it’s going to be a pretty short series, some don’t even expect it to last a year. It’s not because the fans necessarily hate the show, actually from what I’ve seen we’ve been pretty supportive, it’s just that the opening scene for the series is this:

So this scene is basically between some guy (who kind of looks like Iwabe? I’m not sure if it’s him, I kind of have mixed feelings on that theory) and an adult Boruto. This is what has made some fans believe that Boruto is going to be some quick, abrupt, series that’s probably going to end in a short amount of time. Others believe that it’s going to be long because, well, look at Naruto:

(Damn, I shouldn’t have picked such an emotional picture) Personally, I don’t what the Next Gen series to be short, but I’m not exactly expecting 15 years. Although Shippuden admittedly did have a lot of filler/insignificant episodes, it still takes decent writing skills to be capable of writing that long. Rather it’s a book, anime or some movie with sequels, it still takes a lot of thinking and effort. 

I love the Next Gen series with all my heart and more, but that wasn’t exactly the best scene to start on. It kind of already disappoints fans because they think that it’s going to be rushed. Or at least it’s going to feel rushed.

 But no matter how long it ends up being, I’m still going to probably love it, as long as it has a decent ending and doesn’t feel rushed are anything, I’ll be fine Besides, if it ends up getting popular among the Western side of the community, then it may end up being very long, either way I’m supportive.


2. The characters

Can we just talk about how well written out the characters are? Like, it wasn’t even much of a bumpy start in my opinion, I think everything went pretty smoothly from the start and so on, obviously, that can change, we don’t know yet, but so far it’s been doing pretty good, at least to be 


Boruto Uzumaki 

Okay, there are lots of things to say about his character but lets just start with this:


THANK YOU FOR NOT DOING THE CLICHE “MISCHIEVOUS OR WEIRD” MALE PROTAGONIST THING:



But honestly, fans thought that they were going to see that mischievous, ignorant, (yet loveable) male protagonist that always ends up rising above what everyone initially thought he was going to remain. Naruto was the original guy, besides Goku, despite their stories being quite different. But then other anime writers decided to do it, thus, turning it into a cliche.Yet, we somehow end up loving these idiots, I guess it’s because despite them having similar personalities, it’s different stories that they have to tell and different messages they have to bring out. As nerve wrecking as this cliche may be, I couldn’t imagine any other protagonists for some of these anime’s.

Back to the core subject though, Boruto’s generation or Boruto himself may not or never Naruto Uzumaki, but he was the perfect guy to take on the the legacy. However, in the movie he appears to be some spoiled, cringy, selfish, good-for-nothing brat:

And even though he did redeem himself later on during the course of the movie, it still couldn’t help but leave a very bitter taste it our mouth’s, including my own. Even though I have to admit, it did manage to make me cry. But then again, that isn’t a hard thing to do. 


Then Kishimoto decided to release Gaiden, probably a pretty good move being how mad half of the Japanese and most of the Western fans were at him. But after the movie a lot of people nearly completely separated themselves form the fandom. Then came this blessing of a series:


When I first heard of this, I screamed. That was my first reaction. But then I remembered the bratty Boruto and my excitement immediately disappeared. But one day, I decided, why not try watching it? I was pretty scared that I was going to be disappointed again, and I didn’t really want that, but when I saw the series I immediately became attached to it.


Boruto is so different, yet similar to how Naruto is. I didn’t want a completely different character that made the show’s feel go away, but at the same time, I didn’t want a complete duplicate of Naruto, that would’ve been quite disappointing to think one of the writers of your favorite shows wasn’t very versatile, but Boruto has a great balance of both Hinata’s and Naruto’s personality. He’s not the shy, prim and timid person Hinata was:

But he’s not the idiot Naruto was (still may or may not be at times but that’ why we loved and still love him):

Not only that, I love the message Boruto is giving to not only his friends in the series, but his fans, that he’s not his dad, and he’s choosing to take a different path. This isn’t Naruto’s story anymore, it’s Boruto Uzumaki’s story and he’s going to live it however he wants. We saw so many sides we probably wouldn’t have found out existed in the movie or even the manga, and now that theirs a series even more. 


Not to mention the fact that he’s freaking adorable:

You can’t convince me that he isn’t. His personality although not a classic, is still really loveable. A lot of people have mixed feelings about his character, but I’m already pretty attached to him, and I can’t wait to see what his story has to bring.


2. Sarada Uchiha 

As far as how fans view her, all I see is love. Only a few people actually hate/dislike her character. Which I don’t know exactly why, because unlike Boruto, she didn’t necessarily do anything idiotic or bad to get any hate just yet, eventually, she is, and I think that’s when fans should start actually developing actual dislike for her character. Some fans only continued to watch the series because of her and I don’t blame them, she does seem kind of badass.


But I never knew fans could like Sakura’s offspring so much, let’s admit. Sakura got a lot more than enough hate from Shippuden viewers:

This was basically a joke that got way out of hand, because a lot of people actually began ranting about how useless she was, to put it short, Sakura became the most hated character in the entire series, personally, I loved Sakura, but a lot of people didn’t. Coincidentally, majority of those who hated her also shipped NaruSaku, which I will never understand since most fans don’t exactly ship a character that they hate with the main character.


Back to the core subject-(once again smh at myself) Sarada has a very interesting story, not only that, it could have a completely different outcome from the manga version, due this being rather very different from the manga. Although I just believe that it’s going to be written out a bit differently and nothing more. It doesn’t make Sarada’s story boring though. Because honestly, it’s just something that draws fans to her. 


Like Boruto, she seems to be a perfect mixture of both of her parents, she doesn’t push any emotion away as Sasuke does, but she also doesn’t have too much emotion like Sakura tends to have. It seems like she only pushed away major emotions.


Sarada didn’t exactly have the decent or okay childhood that Boruto had, even though Naruto can be somewhat neglectful of his family (with fair reasoning) Boruto still had Naruto their during his younger years. Sarada on the other hand, was basically only raised with a mother and has little to no memory of her father. Her childhood was most definitely different from Boruto’s.


Her story also seems to be different, but it’s way different from how Sasuke’s was, that’s probably why most fans find her story to be the more compelling out of the two. She isn’t short tempered and over emotional like Sakura was:

But she doesn’t tend to accidentally come of as cruel or try to be void of emotion like Sasuke:


Honestly, if Sarada had taken more traits from one parent than the other then I’m pretty sure she would have been hated, too.

She’s a perfect mix. When you really think about it, especially from a writer’s/creator’s point of view, it’s kind of a amazing their have been more than plenty of shows where the main character’s children always end up too much like their parents. But this is absolutely perfect. Honestly, I may not have given this show a chance if it wasn’t for this character. She was pretty interesting in the movie even though she wasn’t a major part of it.


DID I MENTION SHES ADORABLE TOO??:

3. Sai 


Initially, I was just going to leave it at Sarada and Boruto, but the fact that they even put Sai in the series is pretty cool. I’m not going to say that he was one of my favorite characters, but a lot of the Japanese viewers adored him. He’s not really what I’d consider a main character, but I just like the fact that Kishimoto listens to his fans. Sai could’ve been completely gone from the series and that Kishimoto kept him just goes to show that the way this whole entire series has been written is far from being messy, unlike a lot of other animes.


Shipping

There is definitely a shipping war beginning to brew among most fans, a lot fans are already shipping characters. Personally, I think the fans are justified. Sakura was in love with Sasuke when she was around their age, so fans shouldn’t be blamed for shipping anyone. Although their are a lot of ships like MitsuSara, MitsuCho and more, I’m just going to talk about the two main ones involving Boruto:


Borusara and BoruSumi:

Can we please just take a moment of silence to admire this beautiful, wonderful, ship (I’m obviously talking about BoruSara

Okay, I’m going too far, I’m sorry. But seriously, I find this ship so cute. I’m not saying that it can’t be a simple rivalry/friendship like Naruto and Sasuke’s just because Sarada is female I strongly believe that is could being a female myself, but I do ship them pretty hard.

I love the fact that when they’re in public they constantly argue but when they’re alone they tell each other really important things. Personally, I was pro NaruHina all the way, but since Sarada and Boruto’s characters are a pretty good mixture of their parents’ this could be another chance for those who shipped SasuSaku or NaruSasu.

Obviously, I could go on all day as to why I ship these two precious cinnamon rolls, but then I’d be wasting your time. 


As for BoruSumi, honestly, initially I found Sumire to be so annoying at first, once I heard her story she grew on me though, I like her as a character in the series but I don’t ship her with Boruto. I’m just not a fan of the whole NaruHina dynamic happening all over, Hinata is the only character who can really pull it off. Admittedly, I’m probably just another butthurt BoruSara shipper. 


But whatever happens in the series as far as that, I’ll still be completely supportive, Boruto isn’t exactly a love story, afterall.

Overall

Boruto is an awesome show, and even though I had my doubts, I couldn’t imagine being without it and we haven’t even reached the climax of it yet. I can’t believe I ever wasn’t interested in this show. I’m pretty glad that I decided to be open-minded instead of being completely dedicated to Naruto like a few of other fans have chosen to.

This AU is most likely dead, but I am stressed and I drew fefs to cheer myself up so there.

I’m quite proud of these sketches, considering I’ve never done aquariumstuck before. My favorite has to be the little Meenah tickle attack down in the bottom right. She shows no mercy.

In Defense of my Precious Mikaela Hyakuya

Here’s a cute picture of my sweet angel:

Okay? How could anyone hate that sweet baby? He’s so precious to me! Just, why? I know he won the character popularity poll by 1st place but that doesn’t stop him from getting haters (Have you seen the comments of Kissanime? They beat the shit outta him!). Anyways, here’s the defense:

Stalker

He may be obsessive over Yuu, but Yuu was the first person to accept him and the only real “family” he has left. It’s true he’s a bit clingy, but he cares DEEPLY about his “brother.” (who may also be his gay boyfriend)

gets in the way of Yuunoa

Look. Hating a character over ANY ship, canon or not, is basically saying “I don’t care about this character, I like my OTP and hate them for no reason.” Anyways, I highly doubt that Yuunoa is gonna be canon because 

1. in some sort of OFFICIAL media, Yuu says he’s interested in boys but not girls (so yes, he’s gay),

 2. the official art shows MIKAYUU and not YUUNOA (sorry Yuunoa shippers)

3. There are several hints that Mika and Yuu will be a couple

4. Mikayuu is more popular than Yuunoa

The list goes on and on and on. Besides, Mikayuu is my FAVORITE fictional ship ever (and a better love story than Twilight, LOL)!

Yandere

Yes, he’s a bit of a yandere towards Yuu, but they’re so much alike, they both had abusive parents and were nearly killed by their fathers. And you wanna know why Mika acts the way he does? It’s because that douchebag Ferid lied to him that humans were using his family! 

Shit character

I think he’s an AMAZING and well written character!

Flat

Oh really? Here’s some pictures to describe how “flat” he really is:

You see, on the left, is innocent, little boy Mika, and on the right is Mika as a vampire. Does he seem flat to you? I don’t think so.


Here he is, crying after a while since becoming a vampire. I mean, you can’t blame him after he was worrying about Yuu.

And here he is, smiling after seeing Yuu again, drinking his blood and becoming a vampire. He is a precious baby with that adorable smile! Isn’t it the most adorable thing ever? Anyways, he isn’t flat at ALL. In fact, of all the characters in Owari no Seraph, he’s had the MOST development.

Pussy, Emo, Crybaby

I can’t say I blame him, after all he’s been through that I just mentioned. And also, I can’t say that I blame him for not wanting to be a vampire and living with the ones he hates, AKA Ferid.

Overrated

Hating a character for being popular is not a good reason. -_-

Selfish and obsessive over Yuu

It’s true that he IS obsessive over Yuu, but he CARES about the one he loves! It is NOT selfish at ALL to put your life at risk to protect the one you love! Hell, he nearly died for Yuu and you’re still saying he’s selfish? What the actual fuck?!

Killed Aiko

You wanna know why he killed Aiko? Because she asked him to since she was afraid to commit suicide, having lost her comrades in a battle and blaming herself. I admit, it was stupid of him to hurt her, but he thought she hurt his only friend Yuu.

In conclusion, Mika is an adorable precious child and he doesn’t deserve all the hate he gets from most of the fans. This gif says it all

ive been forcing my dad to watch one punch man with me lately, and for the most part hes enjoyed it. today, we got to mumen riders introduction and i turned to my dad and said “ he’s the best one. hes my favorite” and my dad just kinda looked at me like “why???? hes so lame and goofy???”. so we went on our way and watched up until the deep sea king episodes, and that part with mumen rider fighting the king comes on, and i excitedly look over to my dad to see what he’s doing and theres just tears… flowing down his face and he just whispers “you can do it mumen rider.” and he is just so emotionally invested in mumen rider.

BUT THEN at the part where saitama got the fan mail that said thanks, my dad thinks its genos who sent it and is like “meh whatever genos is a dramatic nerd” so saitama goes to that oden place, and when mumen rider says that he sent the letter instead, my dad just breaks apart, he starts crying and smiling and hes just so happy and excited cause mumen rider and saitama get along and mumen rider is just so pure. at the end i turned to him and was like “whos your favorite character” and hes like “mUMEN RIDER OBVIOUSLY”

anonymous asked:

Wuts camp camp about?

It’s a comedy cartoon made by Rooster Teeth (same guys who make Red vs Blue and RWBY). It’s made for adults, so expect some offensive humor, swearing, and plenty of innuendo.

So, what’s it about? It’s essentially about a summer camp that is also implied to be connected to the founder’s illegal activity. Camp Campbell works by combining a lot of various types of camps and mashing them all together. There’s science camp, adventure camp, extreme sports camp, boot camp, and lots and lots of others. It’s pretty much a scam in all but name.

The three main campers are all trying to escape from Camp Campbell, but is often thwarted by Camp Counselor David. The majority of episodes are about these four people.

Max

He’s a nihilist and thinks that nothing really matters. Oh and he can’t wait for the sweet embrace of death. He seems to be most people’s favorite character, so I’m willing to guess that you’ll probably like him too. He’s a foil to David.

David

This guy is an optimist and only really wants to show the campers about the joys of camping. He wants what’s best for the campers and is almost always happy to be there for anyone who needs it. Poor guy also can’t catch a break, but in terms of popularity in the fandom he’s about as well-liked as Max. He’s a foil to Max.

Neil

Neil’s design pretty much tells you plenty of things about his character. However, he also doesn’t really take shit from anybody. He’s the most likely person in the group to get frustrated and is also the first one to try and call out the bullshit going on in Camp Campbell. As far as I know, he’s not as popular as Max or David. He’s a foil to Nikki.

Nikki

Nikki is adventurous and wild. She also kind of goes with everything and goes out of her way to have as much fun as she possibly can. She loves being outdoors and is probably the best suited to Camp Campbell’s bullshit. But, since she’s a self-proclaimed agent of chaos, Camp Campbell may not be suited for her bullshit. She’s not as popular as Max or David, but she is my favorite character of the show. She’s a foil to Neil.

You may have noticed that some of these characters are foils to each other. The most important dichotomy is the one between Max and David. The nihilist versus the optimist and, in my opinion, it’s probably the most interesting thing about the series and I’m curious what they have to say about it.

There’s a bunch of other characters too and I don’t really want to talk about them one by one. But, each of them have their own unique personalities and great character designs.

They’re all pretty good characters (in terms of writing not necessarily in terms of morality) and I’m sure you can find someone you can like. They’re all weird too.

Oh and I missed a couple of characters, like the founder of Camp Campbell, Cameron Campbell

and Camp Counselor Gwen

I both love and hate Lusamine

I mean on one hand she’s done some absolutely unquestionably unforgivable things and I’d love to pop her in the jaw for just the things she did to her kids alone. BUT

Likely in her 30′s-40′s, well respected scientist and head of a noble organization, and still has time to do her hair like that? Goals AF.

She’s by far the most interesting Pokemon villain so far, a complex character with the most realistic character growth. And her character growth isn’t due to ~power of friendship~ like I was afraid it was going to be. I was worried Lillie was gonna be like “BUT MOM I LOVE YOU!” and then she’d have an oh-shit-what-have-I-done moment and everybody would live happily ever after. Nope! Instead Lillie gave a full on Why You Suck speech and it absolutely falls on deaf ears. And post-ultra space, she’s apparently having trouble understanding what she did wrong. These things show she truly thought what she was doing was good - or at least justifiable. And that’s great, because while she’s wrong and she’s horrible for the things she did, it means she isn’t just a boring “i’m going to destroy the world because i’m evil” villain. 

Like seriously. If you hate Lusamine for the things she did, I totally get it. But as far as writing goes, she has to be my favorite so far.
