Asking Kodaka Kazutaka about 7 Years of Dangan Ronpa

It’s been about 7 years since Dangan Ronpa 1 came out in 2010. Since then that new IP has grown to include anime, stage shows, manga, and other media and become a beloved series. While the series has been spreading since the release of the first game, the man who birthed it, Kodaka Kazutaka, has become a name that echoes throughout the industry. For Kodaka, who has said he is taking a break from Dangan Ronpa, he looks back over the seven years he has continued the franchise and what he plans to do in the future.

No direct spoilers, just really goddamn long.

All For The Game

but the all for the game books? why isn’t it more widely known? why isn’t every person i meet talking about it? fuck i’d go to the point to say it’s hands down the best series i’ve read till date. i’m sorry sjm and leigh bardugo ily but nothing broke my heart like neil finding andrew in that room so helpless so uncaring. nothing compares to the complete joy i felt when andreil happened. the amazing amazing consent required for anything and everything. when neil’s team mates accepted him no matter who he was- nathaniel or neil. when neil accepted that he was neil josten- number 10, starting striker, foxhole fucking court. kevin’s strength. dan, matt, renee, allison, nicky and even aaron killed my whole heart. wymack. these characters are so imperfectly broken that i wanted to set everything and anything on fire. these kind of books change people. they are so fricking important i can’t even begin to explain. fucking thank you nora sakavic.

so i guess all i’m saying is just leave whatever you’re doing, go and read the all for the game series. and experience such intense pain that your life becomes literal hell. but it is so worth it.

Scream Season 3

ok so with the amount of people complaining about it I thought I should say something…

they’re rebooting scream- new cast, new story. It sucks for a lot of people, but I think this is purely because of the cast. yes, we’ll miss them, but they are actors, you know, you can still see them in other projects.

in my opinion, they should have made scream an anthology series from the start. the whole point of the original films is that only a small number of people (sidney, dewey, gail) survive each film, so that an audience are introduced to many new characters each time, leaving them to guess who will survive.

imo, i couldn’t realistically see scream do a third series with the same cast. they didn’t have the balls to kill off emma, audrey, noah, or brooke for the length of two seasons, which made the show very predictable (aka, the only characters killed off being ones that appeared in a handful of episodes)

with an anthology series, we’d get a new killer, new characters, and a new story each season. if mtv carried on with this story, the amount of killers going after emma and co. would become so fucking unrealistic

an anthology series would leave you to question the motives of the characters, as well as asking yourself who would be next (which is pretty much the point of scream). i mean, we all knew that emma would never be killed off, since she was the solitary protagonist (remember, the movies always centred around at least three characters, not just one)

you’re allowed to be upset, it’s understandable- but give the third series a chance before hating it and saying you won’t watch it

oh my god. just… the ONLY time we see todd and ken interact the entire series, these two characters that have so perfectly fucking mirrored each other at so many different points, and it’s when they both share this look and little shrug like ‘welp guess i should go look after my weird holistic buddy’ and that’s that and it’s like this pure moment of understanding. perf

PoC and Sarah J Maas

Right, so for the stans, let me say: I legitimately love ACOTAR and Sarah j maas. But this is talking about one of my main problems with her.

As a person of colour, and from the title, you can probably guess what I’m going to be talking about here. I’ll be looking at the series individually. I steadily become more frustrated as I write this, be warned. SPOILERS

THRONE OF GLASS There are at least fifty characters in this series. Way more, even. Let me nail down the main ones off the top of my head: Aelin, Rowan, Chaol, Dorian, Nesryn, Nehemia, Aedion, Lysandra, Lorcan, Elide, Manon, Sorscha, Gavriel & the rest of the cadre, Asterin.

Now, out of that list, from which could be argued that some of those characters are side characters, there are only three people of colour: Nesryn, Nehemiah, Sorscha NOTE: I DO NOT COUNT ROWAN OR ANYONE JUST DESCRIBED AS “TAN” AS A PERSON OF COLOUR. “TAN” IS USED AS AN ATTRACTIVE FEATURE, NOT A WAY TO DESCRIBE RACE. Only three people of colour? Wow, but fine. Let’s how they are represented.

Nehemia - her character has difficulty speaking English (something many could relate to), is a strong leader, a powerful woman. But how does she end up? She sacrifices her so that Aelin can “reach her full potential and save the world”. In the second book.

What. The. Fuck. Now, I read this however long ago and was frustrated. So far, the first person of colour in this series had died for the white main character and was basically used as a plot device. At this point, I was fairly new to YA and hadn’t seen many people of colour, and the ones I had seen hadn’t been treated much better. But I accepted this as the norm, that people of colour were just plot devices in YA books, and moved on.

Sorscha - the second poc in the series. She was Dorian’s random love interest, basically a way for him to get over Aelin and set up his depression in the fourth book, and… she is found as a spy and beheaded in the same book. Before we can form a real attachment to her, she’s gone. Forgotten. Her only purpose was to further Dorian’s arc. I personally forgot she existed until she was mentioned in the fourth book. NEXT.

Nesryn - the third poc, introduced in the fourth book. She is rather random and so far is only there so that Chaol doesn’t end up alone. Maybe in the Chaol novel we’ll see if she serves a greater purpose, but so far I doubt it. Oh, and she, and the only disabled person, are completely removed from the fifth book. But they are getting their own book - that could be a grab for money or because their arc is legitimately important and deserves its own book. We’ll see.

A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES

This series is shorter, and my more preferred of the two, and therefore has less characters. Let’s list the ones I remember off the top of my head: Feyre, Tamlin, Rhys, Cassian, Azriel, Mor, Amren, Nesta, Elaine, Lucien, Helion, Viviane, Kallias, Beron, Eris, Thesan, Tarquin, Varian, Cressida, Maryam, Drakon, Jurian.

I got way more here than in ToG for some reason. Weird. Anyways, the people of colour (and here, I have debated whether to count Illyrians or not, so I’ve left them out because they are mostly described as tan): Amren, Tarquin, Varian, Cressida, Lucien, Helion, Thesan. (NOTE: Most of these are side characters.) Which is an improvement from ToG. Let’s go through them:

Amren - is she Asian? Is she not? I’m not sure whether to count her. She’s not even originally human, so there’s that. I’m putting her on this list for those who say she’s canonically PoC, but I really don’t think so. I think it was just that one line in that one chapter in that one book that suggested she might be Asian-looking. If there’s more than that, please tell me. I honestly don’t remember reading it.

Tarquin, Cressida and Varian - described as dark-skinned with white-ish hair. Cressida was the one person that Feyre was jealous of that one time but stood up in the meeting, and Varian was mainly Amren’s (rather random - I thought she was ace) love interest though he did contribute to the war slightly. But Tarquin - he is the most fleshed out. He is a young High Lord, the youngest, and is described as not knowing how to play the games of the courts. He is morally good and wishes for a a better a world, and I personally love his character.

Helion - Helion is the High Lord of the Day Court. He is described as dark-skinned and bi and a flirt who wants a foursome with Mor, Cassian and Az - but he plays a big part in the war, and is described as almost being as powerful as Rhys. I don’t know how to feel about him.

Lucien - Helion’s son, and therefore mixed-race. His “slightly darker” complexion was only mentioned in ACOWAR as an afterthought, as he was described in ACOTAR as pale. This had me rolling my eyes.

[if I did count Illyrians as PoC, they are described as barbaric people with some serious societal issues. I’m not sure how to feel about that.]

But why is representation of PoC important anyways? Why is it such a big deal?

This is something that some people forget, so let me sum it up for you: as previously mentioned, when I was new to YA I thought it was the norm for PoC to be side characters or killed off. The main characters in movies and tv shows and books are usually white and straight, and this is not only unrealistic but stifling and pushes forward stereotypes. PoC and LGTBQ+ people exist, and statistically speaking, PoC are the majority.

When Bisexual people are represented as sluts or whores who sleep around, when people of colour are represented as barbaric or just there to help the white person, when someone is disabled in one book and completely removed from the sequel, it creates a bad image and pushes forward a horrible image and message. You may only think that young people are impressionable, but think about the stans who blindly support an author and try to justify things like that. They normalise something that shouldn’t be the norm.

This needs to stop.

anonymous asked:

I have been bothered countless times by the canon sasu/saku fans who continuously insist that this ship is 'beautiful' because of sakura's 'unconditional love' for sasuke. It has always bothered me for obvious reason but I can never articulate my arguments into words, when it's /clearly/ wrong. Can you explain how Sakura's love in the canon pages is unhealthy? I really like your explanations and I would like your input on this too I guess.

ayyyyy so I have been letting my inbox pile up (that’s why I turned off anon asks, btw) and I’ve finally become guilt-ridden enough to start going through the backlog. Here’s my current earliest ask, from like, May or something like that. IDK if you will see this, anon! I hope you do.

This is a really good question, so good that I also find this problem difficult to articulate. It’s extra difficult because the concept of “unconditional love” is one applied to many relationships in this series (romantic, platonic, familial) and it’s difficult to talk about one without bringing in the others, either in comparison, or in cause and effect, or sometimes other things. Plus there’s the question of what unconditional love is, whether it can be abusive or enabling, whether it excuses or justifies certain acts, etc.

Like let’s just take “people who unconditionally love Sasuke” as a starting category, right off the bat you have at least Karin, Itachi, Naruto, Sakura (I alphabetized because by God people will be petty enough to argue about which one I put first otherwise). Now I’m sure people will also argue that one or more or these doesn’t really unconditionally love Sasuke (because they don’t love the “real Sasuke,” or because their love isn’t love but infatuation, etc). But I ain’t got time for that today. I got 29 asks in my inbox, people!

So, taking it for granted that all four of these people unconditionally love Sasuke, they all express it in very different ways. Now, I’m going to take the least controversial of the four (at least as regards the genuineness of his love for Sasuke), Itachi. Itachi may have loved Sasuke unconditionally, but he also ruined his life. He’s not fully or solely morally culpable for ruining Sasuke’s life–I’d say he bears very little culpability for the massacre, a llarge share of culpability for later tortures of Sasuke and not revealing the truth until post-mortem, and a share of culpability for allowing Orochimaru to get his hooks in Sasuke–but without regard at all to his moral culpability for his acts, his acts fucked up Sasuke in a big way. (Some people might say that Itachi couldn’t have acted any other way without harming Sasuke more, I’ll succinctly say that’s horseshit. Twenty-nine asks to go, people!)

So unconditional love does not mean always doing what’s best for the object of one’s love. Much less does it mean doing what’s best for oneself.

Unconditional love and unearned mercy/concern/forgiveness can be very beautiful. Naruto crying for Gaara when he’s still 95% Shukaku = beautiful. Sakura hugging Sasuke in the Forest of Death to stop his rampage = beautiful. Dying Karin telling Sasuke not to hurt Sakura (who, by all appearances, at that point was preparing to kill Karin) = beautiful. Like, there are tons of examples of that in the series and that’s good.

But unconditional love can also be “fine, I’ll slaughter dozens of my relatives, some of them totally innocent of any wrongdoing, as long as you let my most beloved relative live”. And that’s… not good.

So today my dash lined up a scene of Hondo sassing Maul right above that comic panel where Obi-Wan admits to Yoda he'd leave the Jedi to complete Anakin's​ training... I think you can guess where my brain went, and I felt the need to share this most hilarious of possible timelines with someone who would appreciate it ;)

You’re gonna have to bear with me, friend: it’s been a reaaaally long day over here, and I have about 2% brain capacity at the moment. 

The first place MY brain went was “Obi-Wan, Maul and Hondo, Through a Series Of Amusing Hijinks, Become Anakin’s Three Dads.” And OH WHAT AN AU THAT WOULD BE. 

This chapter was very interesting. There is more shin soukoku and also character development (for dazai).

Just look at akutagawa’s face here. He feels terrible because he wasn’t able to complete the mission dazai gave them. I really feel bad about him, it’s sad to see how dazai’s words still affect him now. Thankfully atsushi was there to do something. I am really proud of him. He still haven’t fully accepted akutagawa and doesn’t really trust him, but he still felt bad for him and decided to help him. Instead of giving up so quickly, like akutagawa did, he came up with an idea to catch up the virus ability user. He is really smart. I really appreciate how we are starting to see more of atsushi and discover different aspects of him. I mean, it was already obvious that he wasn’t stupid, but anyway I really liked how quickly he assessed the situation and came up with an idea.

It feel kind of rough that I’m at the point where I have grown to dislike the Game of Thrones show so much it feels like a chore to actually watch it. Like, I’m 100% sick of how a morally gray and complex universe has been increasingly warped into one of cackling villains and shining heroes, and that the showrunners are far more fixated on being epic than they are with delivering an engaging narrative. 

The beauty of a lot of these characters is their humanity. Their humanity makes them compelling. Their humanity makes them tragic. Elevating Daenerys to an irreproachable savior and demoting Stannis to a brainwashed zealot is not only a disservice to both characters, it’s a disservice to the narrative overall. 

Amidst the dragons and the white walkers and the cheap, almost-silly “gotcha” moments (Arya single-handedly killing all of House Frey, Dany somehow telepathically dominating her dragons and burning an entire fleet, the Knights of the Vale showing up entirely unanticipated by everyone but Sansa), we’ve lost the realism and the imperfection that made ASoIaF so enthralling. 

What really irks me, I guess, is that there is a very real possibility that GRRM will never finish the series in book form. That this - a mass-appeal-focused, high-budget fan fiction - will go on to be THE canonical end to the series. That we won’t know what Book!Jaime and Book!Theon and Book!Sansa actually become, in the end. 

It just makes me sad that a series that I fell in love with, one with the perfect alchemical balance of darkness and hope, of cynicism and levity, of horror and beauty, is being distilled into an Ice Zombie Versus Dragon Battle Royale with Black-and-White Heroes and Villains So You Know Exactly When to Stand Up and Cheer. 

I honestly hope I’m wrong. Maybe GRRM will finish the series and it will line up exactly with the show. Maybe I am just another salty Stannis fan that felt cheated out of a satisfying narrative arc to one of my favorite characters. Maybe D&D have a secret plan that will satisfy book fans and show fans alike. 

But after seeing Show!Dorne, I’m not optimistic.

Rainy day, post-argument smut.

The rain is nice,
you try to convince yourself as you drum your fingers on the edge of the bench. The rain is nice. It smells clean and brings with it a refreshing breeze, filling the bus shelter with the scent of a crisp spring day. Maybe if you take a deep breath, you can pretend that you’re a tulip in the middle of an April shower. Maybe if you close your eyes and let your mind wander, it will feel something like getting hit by a playful ocean spray.

But you don’t. Instead you choose to glance at the glass wall on your left. It’s plastered with raindrops, some fat, some minuscule, all of them gliding down the glass in a race to drown the earth. There has always been something calming about the sight of it- raindrops, you discovered early on in your life, have a therapeutic quality to them- but today, you find yourself scowling savagely at the scene because no, the rain is not nice. It is not a spring day and there is no playful ocean. It’s almost winter and it’s fucking freezing. The rain is positively pouring down, your clothes are sticky from the droplets, and yet somehow, despite the miserable situation screaming at you otherwise, you’re still here on the bench after forty-five long minutes of waiting.

Here’s the budget plan

BACK THE KICKSTARTER TODAY!

As you guys might’ve caught on, recently I’ve posted a lot of headcanons and speculation about Lotor. Honestly, I can’t help it. Since I feel the need to explain myself a bit – these are some of the reasons why I am super excited to see him next season.

Lotor will have a brand new more compelling and sympathetic personality, being far more multidimensional than his previous counterparts 

To quote some of the hosts of that new Afterbuzz interview with the creators and Bex, in the old show Lotor was, “Exceedingly shallow and had a one note personality. The only things that interested him were  power, so he hated his dad and yelled at Haggar, and Allura, who he wanted to marry or kill her when she said no. That is the literally the only character trait he had.” 

Lotor, in a sense, is a blank slate.   With the show staff pretty much saying almost outright that Lotor won’t be interested in Allura romantically in this version and could possibly be relatives during that same interview, let’s face it – him pursuing Allura like a wannabe Pepé Le Pew was a huge chunk of his character in the old series, the writers and show staff will have to give him a brand new personality and brand new traits to make us care about him more and be a strong threat to the team.

What his new personality will be  – I have no idea, outside of him being a hot shot like Dos Santos said during an interview. But if he’s the person in the Weblum, and if I had to guess, Lotor is a quick and mobile gunman. He is smaller than the other Galra by a long shot. He is very perceptive and better at coming up with plans on the fly, willing to use anything to aid him like a Space MacGyver, while sucking at making long term plans.  He has a cocksure personality, but doesn’t see himself as the automatic victor like Zarkon seems too. He is willing to work with others and has a conscience, but he is still dangerous, cunning and will go to dark ends to make his goals happen. He has his own agenda, being rebellious and having a different attitude than his dad. He is very hands on and direct, being very pragmatic. He will have a strong scientific side and use more scientific inventions to get at the team, using that more than magic like his father. He will be a mixture of mirror! Lance and mirror!Keith.  Over all, he would be a different and dangerous threat to the team in his own right.

  With that said, this is just a guess since I can only speculate at this point in time. Hell, I’m still not sure if he is the Weblum Galra yet…

The VLD writing staff already promised to make Lotor to be a more compelling and multidimensional along with better motivation and drive than his previous counterparts in many different interviews. I have no doubt they will keep their word with that.    The VLD writing staff are very talented people, a lot of them working on Avatar and Korra before. They know how to make a great, compelling characters and villains.  They also said many times before that they don’t want to create one dimensional, boring mustache twirler villains like Sincline, but make them sympathetic and complex, having some good in them like how the Mall Cop is a Zarkon fanboy, who wants to protect his mall, or the prison warden doing anything to get his pet back, who he loves to death.  Lotor is not an exception to that rule.

I honestly believe that Lotor has a high possibility of being like some of the YGO villains and will redeem later on in the series. Lotor almost redeemed in DOTU and had Proto-Zuko traits, so it is possible that he could actually become a better person this time around. This will be after a long run of being a great villain, obviously. Like I said before, Lotor being redeemed is only a guess.

Either way, I’m curious to see what personality the show staff will give him next season.

Lotor has the ingredients to be a great character

Lotor in Go Lion was half Altean. With the show staff adding some Go Lion elements to the series like Shiro’s name, I find it highly likely he is half Altean in VLD. If he was the person in the Weblum, he most likely damn well knows that is the case. A lot of the Galra won’t be too happy with their new emperor being half Altean and they most likely won’t take him seriously since he was never brought up in the series once until the last second of season 2. Lotor would have his own way of doing things and would be still be compared back to his father, especially if he fails.

 Both of his home planets blown up whether it be in his life time or before he was born. Because of this, and I cannot see Haggar talking about Altea to him, I can see Lotor struggling with his identity  – big time,  trying to piece together his past and learn more about his Altean heritage much like Keith is with his Galra heritage. I can see Lotor being fascinated with Allura and Keith in a non sexual way because they are Altean and half Galra respectfully. I can also see Lotor throwing this into Keith’s face with his identity issues.

Both of these factors, Lotor being in his father’s shadow and seeking answers about his identity, would be excellent ways to make Lotor  multidimensional without making him super creepy and make him sympathetic. These will add more conflict to his character in a way that might be very relatable to some. This won’t make him a good person automatically, god no, but it would give him more dimension and make him more compelling to watch.

Lotor will push the team more, getting great interaction with the team

During interviews, the creators said that Lotor will be a much different villain than his father, having his way of doing things.

Lotor in the old series had a rivalry with Keith, which I can easily see carrying over into VLD. I always joked around that the series is missing a rival character.   Sure, there is the Lance and Keith one, but that is more playful like Jonouchi and Yami’s from YGO. And, let’s face it –  it is mostly one sided on Lance’s part.  I’m talking about a Yami and Seto style rivalry where they are both powerful and strong opponents, pushing each other to the limit. Lotor could be the answer to that. Someone, if he is the person in the Weblum, who can work well with the team if he needs to, but also sees Keith as an opponent and an obstacle to defeat. With Keith having a lot of Yami’s personality traits, it seems rather fitting for him to face off a Space!Kaiba. (Would that make Lotor/Keith like Prideshipping…? Not the point!)

It’s not just Keith I can see Lotor pushing, but the rest of the paladins too. I can see him facing off against Allura because they are both Altean, having magic duels with her. I can see him pushing Lance as a character. If my Mirror!Lance theory is correct, Lance would see some of his darker traits within Lotor and have to step up in order to battle him. And if he is the person in the Weblum, they would have to face off against one another a lot since they are both gunman, making for a more compelling and far battle. I can see him pushing the rest of the team as well. Over all, he will challenge the team as a whole and make them grow as characters.

Over all, I’m excited to see Lotor next season and I want to see how he will be adapted in VLD.

As a side note, I also wonder who will play Lotor in the new series, too.

How do i get into astro boy? Your posts amuse me

OH BOY OH BOY OH BOY OH BOY!!!!

SO much to explain I mean look at the many series to choose from!

The question is you wanna read the manga or watch a show first? (Or both)

Ok so mangas we got The original manga,2003 series, and pluto 

From Longest To shortest, It’s the original, pluto and 2003 WARNING LOT OF FEELS AND PAIN IN ALL OF THEM DON’T LET THE COVERS MISLEAD YOU!! 

The original manga I believe as 23 volumes!

Pluto has 8 volumes!

And the 2003 series has 3! Though barely anyone can find the first volume and if you do it’s probably not in English!( Side note if anyone has that volume hook a girl up) 

The Pluto manga is honestly amazing and I love looking at the character designs side by side with the original ones!

But let me move away from the mangas before this becomes a super long post!

Honestly in my opinion, if you want to watch the show either start with the 80′s or the 2003 one!

Though both have their little Flaws…For an example, the 80′s dub messed up the Atlas arc by cutting off his part in episode one so it looks like this character just randomly appeared….And in the 2003 series subbed after episode 30 the subtitles became a bit of a mess and it becomes a guessing game of which word were they trying to say. 

The 1960′s one Is LONG Like…

watching the first series of Naruto long. You would finish the 80′s series and 2003 series faster and both are around 50 episodes each.

Now once you’re happy and ready to laugh at stuff because of all the angst go watch Little Astro boy 

 The dub is so bad it’s good 


NOW IF YOU’RE READY TO ROAST SOME THINGS.

go read this 

and go watch this 

no offense to anyone who likes the movie!…I mean it’s not bad…but it’s not good…SorrySorRYSorry

anonymous asked:

Besides Jon, who do you see as a candidate with a good chance of being a romantic interest for Sansa? I don't know if George Martin will even include that in an endgame but considering Sansa does want someone to love her for who she is, I'd hope he'd at least allow her some happiness in that regard.

Hey Anonny!

I am actually pretty optimistic about Sansa getting a happy ending; primarily because “no one will ever marry me for love” and “life is not a song,” and “there are no heroes, in life the monsters win” are so incredibly prevalent in her arc. Sansa’s character arc is basically a “Captive Princess in the Tower”— but deconstructed, and then reconstructed, and then ~kind of~ deconstructed again and also ~kind of~ flipped on it’s head. But regardless, a fairy tale is still a fairy tale. Honestly the entire ASoIaF series is one ridiculously long, intricately detailed fairy tale. Which leads me to believe that, for the most part, all the protagonists will get their happy (or at least bittersweet) endings.

Above everything else, Sansa wants to be loved; and through out the series she has become more and more convinced that she never will be, that she is unlovable. Aside from retuning home to Winterfell, its still her heart’s dearest desire. She does still want a loving, happy marriage, she just doesn’t think it’s possible anymore:

 But then she remembered what Dontos had told her in the godswood. Tyrell or Lannister, it makes no matter, it’s not me they want, only my claim. —Sansa, ASoS

It is not me she wants her son to marry, it is my claim. No one will ever marry me for love. But lying came easy to her now. “I … can scarcely wait to meet him, my lady. But he is still a child, is he not?” —Sansa, ASoS

It’s not that Sansa has given up on love, its that she thinks love has given up on her. It’s not necessarily that she’s rejecting the idea of falling in love and being happily married, she just doesn’t see it happening for her. Which breaks my gd heart oml

Now moving on to your actual question (I know, I ramble. It’s so terrible!)
