Red & Blue Connection Theory

Be warned there’s gonna be Voltron s3 spoilers in here!! So if you don’t want to see that, look elsewhere. (Also this is super fucking long, I’m sorry.) 

Anyway so I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, and what with (at least temporary) Red Paladin!Lance being confirmed, now is probably the time to post this.

Coincidentally, I’ve been spending the past couple weeks looking for foreshadow of the Red and Blue Lions have some kind of Special Connection and there is quite a bit, so I thought I’d share some of what I’ve found.

The gist of it is that I think Red and Blue have some kind of connection that the other lions don’t seem to have with each other. Of course all the lions have a special bond, but there seem to be a lot of hints that the connection between Red and Blue *coughs* and their pilots is something a little different––basically, that Lance and Keith have shown a lot more interest in/connection to each other’s lions than any of the other paladins have.

(And before everyone jumps down my throat, I’m NOT proposing a permanent lion switch so jot that down lol. But I do think temporary lion switches are Good so uhhhh fight me.)

I’m not sure how to go about explaining this, but I’m just gonna break it down to:

- Keith’s connection with Blue

- Lance’s connection with Red

- What Does It Mean

Here we go!!!

Keith & Blue

- I’m still caught up on this whole “Keith sensed the Blue Lion” thing. Granted, it could have something to do with his alien abilities™ (I’m still rooting for Keith with Altean ancestry, y’all) but I still question the choice of having Keith sense Blue, of all the lions. He only detects the location of two lions in canon, and they’re––you guessed it––Blue and Red. 

First we have some kinda vague “energy” that attracts Keith to Blue:

Then we have this part where Keith just … closes his eyes and senses Red somehow??

(These both happen in the first episode, I might add.)

Like I said, this could be some kinda sixth alien sense. But, I do also wonder if it was Blue trusting & calling out to Keith specifically, which is interesting considering he’s not even her paladin.

- Also in the first episode, when they find Blue, Keith & Lance are the first ones to approach her. Keith even reaches Blue before Lance does!

And then they’re both standing right in front of Blue, side-by-side, when she wakes up.

There is still a close-up on Lance when Blue awakens––but even so, everyone else has much more of a one-on-one first interaction with their lion, so this scene in particular stands out to me.

- Other than in the first episode we don’t get much of Keith interacting with Blue in s1 (except for him saving Blue for Lance in s1e06, which is cute!)

But then there’s also this moment in s2 where he starts asking Coran about whether there might have been Galra on earth before, and whether that could have something to do with Blue being on Earth:

Which is especially interesting now that we know that Keith is part Galra. So …. is it possible the previous Blue Paladin might’ve been Galra?? or even could have been an ancestor of Keith’s?

Then of course we have Lance emerging from his room at the mention of Blue, and accusing Keith of “having his eye on the Blue Lion since day one”:

This is … kinda odd considering Keith hasn’t outwardly shown any desire to pilot Blue as far as I can remember. So, obviously this is a throwback to the very first episode in which Keith first sensed Blue––and the fact that it was brought up again out of nowhere makes me suspicious that there’s Something there that hasn’t quite been addressed yet.

Lance & Red

- *rubs hands together* Now this is Extra Fun because now I know for a fact Lance is gonna fly the Red Lion at some point in s3 because it was in the trailer and all …

:’’))

Unfortunately I don’t get to say “I told you so” because I didn’t publish this post before then, but anyway! I’ve been looking for foreshadow of this and honestly?? If you ask me, there are hints of Red Paladin!Lance since the very first episode. (Again, I’m not suggesting Lance becomes Red Paladin forever, so please don’t kill me. But I do think Lance having some kind of connection with Red has been foreshadowed.)

- So!! In the first episode I noticed that when Allura assigns each of them a lion, she doesn’t technically assign Blue to Lance (because he interrupts her, lol). It’s just kind of assumed that he’s Blue Paladin since, well, he’s flown Blue. Now, I’m not saying he’s not the Blue Paladin––he is! Buuut I also find a couple things about this scene Intriguing:

1) Lance looks like he almost expects to be assigned the lion as Allura describes it (even though he already has a lion), and then seems a bit shocked/upset when it gets assigned to Keith instead.

2) Not only that, but you may notice the Red Lion hovers between BOTH of them, which is noteworthy because this doesn’t happen to anyone else when they get their lion assigned to them. Hmmmmmm…

- This may be an unpopular opinion but I actually … also think Lance shows some Red Paladin traits. Once again, that’s not to say that Lance doesn’t also fit into the role of Blue Paladin because of course he does, but I do think he shows traces of being capable of being Red Paladin as well.

Like listen, when Allura is assigning Red, these are her exact words: “The Red Lion is temperamental and the most difficult to master. … Its pilot needs to be someone who relies more on instincts than skill alone.”

So really the only qualifications here are: 1) Be skilled. 2) Have good instincts.

And Lance?? Fits those qualifications pretty damn well. He’s a skilled pilot, sharpshooter, and strategist. And he has very strong awareness/instincts as well (i.e. being able to identify the Rover clone super fast, being able to come up with a plan on the Balmera on the fly, etc.). There’s no reason why he can’t fly Red if you ask me.

- Also, when the Red Lion gets fire power for the first time Lance is like, “I want that!!” which is interesting … especially because (at least as far as I can remember) no one else expresses jealousy for another paladin’s lion that way.

And generally I just find it kinda funny that Lance accuses Keith of having his eye on the Blue Lion when Lance has like…canonically had his eye on the Red Lion from pretty early on. 

- In addition to all of the above, there does seem to be some foreshadow about Keith getting separated from Red (at least temporarily). i.e. he has that dream about Red rejecting him.

And there’s also that vision he has in BoM where Red is far away from him.

(Tag yourself I’m the people screaming.)

Could be coincidental …. or could be intentional to foreshadow something about a certain someone else temporarily taking over as Red Paladin.

- And lastly: it may not mean anything, but in GoLion (the original anime) Isamu/Lance was Red Paladin … So, could be a nod to the original!

And yes, he wore a blue outfit but piloted the Red Lion, don’t question it. Color coordination hadn’t been invented yet. 

What Does It Mean?!

- In general, there seems to be a lot of subtle foreshadow that there is Some kind of connection between the Red and Blue lions––or at least, to an extent, Keith and Lance have connections to each other’s lions as well as their own.

- It could mean they are both capable of piloting each other’s lions. I’ll say it again––I’m not suggesting a permanent lion swap or anything along those lines, because both paladins also have very strong connections to their own lions. (Also, I’m not sure about Blue Paladin!Keith at this point, although it’s hard to say since we don’t really know what the quintessence of the Blue Lion is yet.)

However, I think in certain situations their lions could be accepting of the other’s paladin (which of course we know is possible since Keith has piloted Black before, and in the s3 trailer it appears he does so again, as well as Lance piloting Red). So, I feel like that could be important.

- As for the reason behind this connection: It could be because their elements balance each other out (you know, the whole fire-and-ice thing), but what I’m really hoping is that there is some significance in the relationship between the previous Red & Blue Paladins (interpret that however you want––but yeah like, maybe they were good friends??? or …. more than that????) and their lions built up a strong connection because of that (or vice versa).

- TL;DR: I think it’s pretty much inevitable that Red & Blue/Keith & Lance have some kind of special connection (space ranger partners™ amiright) and if you ask me there are a lot of signs pointing in that direction. That’s all, bye.

Guys, it’s been a day.

Less than a day even.

Are we really doing this? Sega lets you design your own character that obviously WOULDN’T be a recolor because, duh, they wouldn’t put that option in the game, and some people are really complaining about it?

I get it, I really do. I’ve been in the fandom for years and have been with Sonic since the Genesis days. I understand that people don’t like change. Some people still don’t like boost. Even if it’s not wisps exactly, some people hate that it’s still there. Some want a return to the Adventure style. Some people are upset that the third character isn’t one of the many characters Sega created over the years.

Modern and Classic Sonic are iconic. Generations is also really well-loved, so it was an obvious choice to have both of them in the game. Yet, maybe they didn’t want to make it exactly like Generations, and thus chose to add another character.

But they considered; what if they picked someone that people didn’t like? I mean, even some of the Adventure lovers didn’t like playing as some of the characters, or just the characters themselves. It was a risk.

So, they sat around in the office one day and decided that they wanted you to be in the game. They wanted you to be part of the adventure.

They wanted you, because no matter what anyone says, they wouldn’t be here without their fans, and they know that.

Character customization is not easy. I’ll bet they spent so much time slaving over this because they didn’t want just anyone to fight alongside Modern and Classic; they wanted you.

Some people are joking, and I understand that. Some are poking fun and that’s completely okay. Yes yes, I’ve heard it all; Sega letting people make custom characters is what caused everything in the game to go to hell, blah blah blah.

But this? Being negative like this? That’s not okay.

I’m not saying that people can’t have their opinion, and if anyone legitimately doesn’t want to play as a customizable character, that’s perfectly fine, but saying that this game is suddenly going to be bad or that Sega’s made a huge mistake and actually meaning it? Before the game’s even come out?

This franchise has gone through many changes over the years; from Classic to Modern and everything in-between. It’s natural that things change as Sega tries new things.

But isn’t that part of the magic? There are so many different attempts at making a Sonic game, and none are exactly alike. Sometimes it’s just Sonic, sometimes someone else comes along for the ride, and sometimes it’s a whole slew of characters you get to choose from!

And this time, it’s you. Even if no one ends up liking the gameplay style, Sega made a conscious decision that YOU were more important than every other character they’ve made aside from Sonic himself.

I think that’s pretty special.

Sonic is not dead. Even if Sega stops making games, as long as people continue to cherish the franchise and the character, Sonic will never be dead.

Negative opinions, no matter how severe, will not change that fact.

THE SIGNS AS GUYS I KNOW
  • Aries: TRASH COMPLETE TRASH. He used to be really sweet and was pretty much the king of cute guys two years ago, but now he thinks being a jerk that only talks about having sex with his girlfriend is cool. IT'S NOT FYI
  • Taurus: Really chill and funny, but he gets randomly depressed at times and it makes me sad because this dude deserves to be happy.
  • Gemini: Great fashion sense and he always keeps it 100 percent, nothing more and nothing less. He's honestly one of my favorite people, but we don't hang out much these days. Hmm... sad.
  • Cancer: ALSO TRASH. Passive-aggressive and annoying. He doesn't like to look at himself as the problem and just blaming everything on other people. [Micheal Jordan voice] Stop it, get some help.
  • Leo: ANNOYING AND LOUD. Breaks up friendships too because some people (me) become super petty and annoyed when this person is around that they (me) have to stop talking to one of their best friends for a whole year.
  • Virgo: Comes across as really strange and probably has some weird fetishes, but he's nice so yeah.
  • Libra: Pretentious and douchey. Everyone seems to like this dude for some reason though. I can see why people do sometimes, but then he just does something and I HATE HIM AGAIN. He might be really successful in the future though.
  • Scorpio: Video game nerd, but not smart nerd, ya know? He gets a new crush every other week and has probably liked all my friends at some point in time. But he's super nice and gave me candy once so I'm not a hater.
  • Sagittarius: SUPER FUNNY AND SMART. But always seems to have a crush on someone and it's just sad seeing him try to flirt. I cringe as I type.
  • Capricorn: I LOVE HIM SO MUCH, HE'S THE LOVE OF MY LIFE (even though he doesn't know I exist oops). HE'S SO TALENTED AND SEXY I COULD DIE. But he seems to not think before he speaks (or tweets in this case) and it makes me sad. (Me: Doesn't know any Capricorn guys, so I write about my celebrity crush lolol)
  • Aquarius: He's probably always high or drunk. BUT still pretty cool... in small doses. If I had to spend more than an hour with this dude I'd probably die.
  • Pisces: Innocent and sweet. He is an innocent child, I will personally fight anyone who tries to corrupt this innocent baby. Ok? Ok.

((I don’t know if this has been done, so if it has please tell me.))

So I’ve seen a lot of those ‘Humans are Space Orcs’ posts and I think those are really cool, but unnoticed they all consist of one thing: humans traveling with the aliens.

So there are a lot of ways you can do that, right? You could go all Star Trek and make it to where the humans and aliens all live together in harmony and travel space together and things like that. But I have a different idea and I think it’s pretty cool.

So humans don’t really know aliens exist. Obviously you have your conspiracy theorists and loons and the occasional 'abducted’ person, but for the most part it’s just generally accepted that aliens are fun and all, but they’re not /real/.

And then there’s this kid. He/she/they don’t really have a happy life, but they can’t really do anything about it. You can make them whatever you want, have any or of disorder or disability or just make them an angsty teen that comes from an unhappy home. They want to leave, but they’re too young, so they have to stay.

Then of course, the aliens come. But instead of crap like Independence Day (I say crap in a loving way, the movie was pretty good and I like it), the aliens just take one look at the kid, pick them up, and leave. That’s it. Nothing else. Just take the kid and go.

Of course the kid is terrified at first, but after like the first day or so they calm down because the aliens are treating them like gosh-darn royalty. They put the kid up in the nicest room on the ship, give them the best food they can muster from their rations, and provide for any kind of entertainment the kid might want. It’s like paradise, and the kid is happier than they’ve been in a while.

So the kid travels with these aliens on all sorts of cool adventures and throughout this period is when we get the 'Humans are Space Orcs’ discoveries. Like the kid will go up to random giant furry beasts and just glomp them and coo at them while the aliens are like “No that’s deadly it will kill you oh my god what is this kid doing?!?!” Or, if the kid has a uterus, come time for their period the aliens freak out because “Oh holy shmarda, the child is bleeding!! Why is the child bleeding?!” Hilarious antics and shenanigans ensue and the child is so happy with their new life that they never want to go back home.

Also included: drama when the aliens return to earth to find a human companion for the child (even though they didn’t ask for one you guys don’t have to do this really it’s fine) and the parents of the kid demand they be returned immediately. The kid doesn’t want to go back of course so the aliens have to fight for custody over the kid in court (I guess idk but something along those lines. Maybe the humans try to kill the aliens because the kid was “abducted” and that causes a lot of angst and problems.).

Idk just something that’s been floating about in my imagination for a while. I think it would be a really cool show though tbh like someone hire me.

So this post of mine really took off it seems! Looks like there’s a lot more of these blogs than I thought, which is super cool! Also, I was at 400 followers last night (which is about 300 more than when I last checked) and now I’m on 470, so I felt like I should do something cool. So I thought “How about a blog with a list of as many ‘Humans are weird’ blogs as possible? That’d be pretty cool, and if it gets popular, then it’ll help some newer alien blogs with getting their content out there!” 

So, uh, what do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? Let me know, please!

Here’s all the blogs I know of so far:

anonymous asked:

Hey Kel, is there any way you can do a tutorial on drawing in black and white then changing it to colour? I always see artists talk about doing that to preserve values but I don't understand how to transition from b&w to colour without just recolouring the whole picture. Thank you so much, you're always such a blessing ;w;

HI!! I don’t use that method to color, but it’s basically adding layers (with different coloring modes) on top of your b&w layer to get the final colored drawing. 

THIS IS A VERY QUICK EXAMPLE and you can definitely polish it further than what I did. At the end you can merge everything and paint over it to fix stuff/ brighten colors too. HERE are a couple of tutorials that explain it rly well I think: 1, 2, 3 !! This method is called glazing, so you could try googling that to find out more if you want!!

Hey dudes! Sorry I haven’t drawn in a bit, just wasn’t feeling it. But to make up for it I drew these guys with finger guns because that just needed to happen.

How many of you have read the Eddsworld Wiki (or just watched the episode) that states Tom and Tord would be partners if Edd didn’t exist? Making “Adult Movies”? Well I have and it kind of inspired me to make this thing. Whatever it is. I tried to make them look like buddies or… “Partners in Crime” if you will.  I thought it was kinda cool and it took me forever to make so I hope you guys think it’s alright. *Thumbs up because I don’t know how to get to emoticons on computers*

I couldn’t decide which one to post so here have both 

studyworkshop-deactivated201706  asked:

How do you take such beautiful photos? Can you give me advice on taking clear, bright, and aesthetically pleasing photos? Thank you :)

hi, sorry for the late reply! i was hesitant about answering this because i’m 100% sure there will be people arguing that i’m encouraging an unrealistic studyblr aesthetic but whatever. yolo

long post ahead!!

the first step is most important: natural light!! unless you have, like, professional photography lights ready to go, then your photos will look best with natural light. take a photo near a window but not directly in front of it so the shadows aren’t too harsh

also, i use an iphone 6 for my photos, but you can use whatever you have

and, now, a messy collection of steps that i got too carried away with:

and now for some disclaimers:

  • the quality of your studies is in no way determined by how pretty of a photo you can take
  • the studyblr aesthetic is cool and can be super motivational but you shouldn’t feel compelled to ///give in/// to it
  • a studyblr isn’t about the photos. it’s about an enthusiasm for learning and a passion for education!
  • but nice photos are still nice to look at, and i personally think they make studying more appealing to me, so,

there you go! the entire process from desk to dashboard. i hope it helped!

HECK YOU HAVE SUBMIT OPEN I’VE WANTED TO SUBMIT THIS SINCE LAST YEAR
Ah old art but I’m still actually pretty dang proud of how I drew the clothes n junk
I kinda made it mostly for CC back when her icon was Luciel.
Here’s the thing I made when I posted it to my page
“I mentioned on the MWSIH Christmas Stream that Maverick was pretty much Unknown (edgy, mysterious, generally just a sinnamon roll that just wants freedom and icecream), so I drew them clothes swapped.
Not sure if you can tell, but Maverick’s tryna copy Unknown’s pose bc he’s “cool”
Anyways I was kinda hesitant to make this bc spoilers, but if you take the right turns you can see Unknown in the prologue, soo…
Ye but I hope you like it I spent loads of time on it. (I hope I got Maverick’s clothes right…)“

I think it’s fair to post now but I’ll tag Mystic Messenger spoilers just in case.

Don’t know very much about Mystic Messenger. CC got into it a while back so I have osmosis-style absorbed some info about it.

i only ever see skinny trans guys.

positivity posts about loving yourself never seem to extend towards chubby/fat trans guys - especially those with eating disorders - and it really gets me down. and side note, i’ve literally never seen anyone talk about the fact that you can have an eating disorder and not be skinny. 

i want to learn to love my body because once i do end up getting top surgery and hormones, the fat isn’t going to go away. 

and like i know. i know being fat isn’t a bad thing. i know “fat” isn’t a bad word. but i just feel disgusting and no one takes me seriously. my dad keeps commenting that i’m overweight. 

but before i deal with them i need to deal with me. that’s why i’m posting these i guess. my stretch marks are pretty cool and maybe i bind better than i think i do. that’ll do for now. 

tl;dr - chubby/fat trans guys are valid and you matter. hang in there

Hey Ship, I'm kind of terrified of moths. My evolved brain sees moths and says "oh yeah, that can't hurt me, and it's kind of pretty too!" However, my lizard brain says "oh shit! No! No moth!" And I feel the need to run away. A few months(?) ago, you posted a drawing of a moth-human character in a coat and cap. Now, I think of moths in tiny clothes when I start to freak out about them. It helps (thanks!). Do you have any cool moth facts that I can remember to make moths less... alarming?

Ohh man, I’m glad that helped! That’s adorable! I know a lot of people with unexpected moth phobias. I wonder why they’re so common? Moths don’t get the bad media representation that spiders do, and they can’t bite you.

Hmm… moth facts. Well, there really aren’t any deep, fundamental differences between moths and butterflies that should make one creepy and the other cool. They’re closely related and only differ cosmetically and behaviorally in a handful of ways - like frogs versus toads. Most survive on a purely liquid diet, while some do not have functioning mouthparts at all.

Saturniidae moths are large and spectacular - you’re probably familiar with Luna moths at least. They’re docile, have soft fuzzy bodies, and typically live for only a few days - all that time as caterpillars and in their cocoons was saving up for the Big Day to come out in flashy disco suits and find another disco moth to hook up with for one last wild dance.

A lot of us have already talked about why this panel is great, so I figure I’ll share my take on it. Obviously, I love it.


1) The very first thing that stood out to me is Gray’s bashful face. This is not a typical Gray Fullbuster face. I’ve seen quite a few say he is blushing here, but I’m pretty sure that’s just dirt because it’s not particularly where Mashima draws blushes. Nonetheless, that face says a lot and a blush isn’t exactly necessary. It’s not embarrassment, it’s a bashful and happy expression that was supposed to be on the way to a serene resolution…until Natsu went and disappeared. (As an aside, that was of course, the major, major, MAJOR event of the chapter…)

2) So, is it REALLY about just apologizing? Given that face, the fact that Juvia’s literally the first thing that comes up on what he’s going to do post-war, and Lucy’s facial expression, I think we know he’s probably trying to “play it cool”. The boy damn well knows that he promised an answer after the war. He also knows that he’s already been ripped raw and showed his cards on what his feelings are. He’s ready, he’s nervous a bit, and he knows it’s time to jump into the deep end. He’s also pretty darn happy about it for that look. It was Mashima throwing back to “after the war” as a fake-out giving us the very temporary sense that the war is over, and reiterating that the conversation is definitely going to happen. It’s a priority for Gray–it’s THE priority for Gray.

3) It’s probably about so much more than 499, even if that’s what Mashima decided to convey. I’ve seen some criticism that these were the choice for demonstrating Gray’s need to apologize for the fight instead of Iced Shell, but I think it’s more that he felt he failed to protect her. He put things off in 453 to keep focused and keep her safe…and that technically did not happen. The 499 moments reiterate exactly HOW much things impacted him.


4) As @thatsvicchan pointed out, this little gem is a throwback parallel to Tartaros. This time, instead of Juvia seeking out Gray to apologize, Gray’s the one who feels the need to reach out. As we saw in 416, that apology was about way more than merely apologizing. It was the moment that started to pull it all together, raw emotion, and a beautiful display of their bond. Now we have the guy who promised to be “more serious” keeping up with that promise. I can’t wait (you know, after we figure out how Natsu comes back and this Acnologia mess gets straightened out).

ATTENTION AYANDO SHIPPERS!

THERE IS HOPE! Okay, so this is going to be a long post, but if you read it YOU WILL LIKE WHAT YOU SEE HERE. This post is pretty much based on the headcanon that Budo’s mystery crush is Ayano, which I honestly sometimes forget isn’t canon. I really believe it is, because of the characters-who-like-each-other-have-the-same-hair-color thing (Ayano & Senpai, Riku & Kokona). The only other character who has the same hair color as Yan-Chan and Senpai is Budo… I wonder why? Also, if Budo knew how badass and strong Ayano is, why wouldn’t he like her? BUT ANYWAY, ONTO THE REAL STUFF.

Okay, so the way I see it, the ship Ayando (which I am trash for btw) can become possible in three different ways.

#1). This idea has been thrown around by a lot of people already; Budo being considered a rival that Ayano needs to eliminate to get to Senpai. I think it would be great if Ayano’s reputation got high enough, someone might have a crush on HER, and she would need to get rid of them before they threatened her relationship with Taro. Who BETTER to serve this purpose than Budo? For some reason (maybe the myth about the cherry tree prevents Ayano from saying no, because she so desperately wanted the myth to work with Senpai, or something else, idk, maybe Ayano is too awkward to say no), if Budo confessed under the cherry tree to Ayano on a Friday, it would cause a game over. The ideal of rival that likes AYANO is (in my opinion) a really cool idea.

2). Another possible canon Ayando scenario is once again something that’s been thrown around a lot; Ayano dating Budo while she eliminates rivals to get Senpai. Just think; something happens to every girl who likes this one boy, yet nothing happens to Ayano? A little suspicious, if you ask me. What if she dated Budo until the tenth week to keep the blame off of her? Megami wouldn’t assume that the Yandere girl she knows is in the school would date anyone but her Senpai, right? It’s the perfect alibi. I feel like this is less likely than the other one, because this game isn’t a dating simulator. But honestly, they could just eat lunch together or something, not go on actual dates. I can’t see Ayano wanting to do that with anyone but Senpai, anyway. Still, I think this would be a really cool way for Ayano to get rid of suspicion.

3). As far as I know, no one else has thought of this, but I COULD BE WRONG SO DO NOT HOLD ME TO IT. YanDev said a while ago that there might be DLC rivals for the game; Midori, a succubus, twins, the phantom girl, a rookie police woman, or another yandere to name a few. The one that interests me most is the other yandere. She would potentially take all Ayano’s weapons, and try to eliminate Yan-Chan the way she eliminated her own rivals. If this is true, then would the other yandere be able to eliminate Ayano via matchmaking? Do you see where I’m going with this? What if the other yandere girl could matchmake Ayano with Budo to get rid of her? That would be pretty cool.

As Ayando trash, I take it upon myself to find every piece of hope possible. If I think of more possible ways Ayando happens, I’ll post them.

Bonus). Ayano realizes that Senpai is a stereotypical little bitch, and gets over him. She then begins going out with Budo because he’s actually decent. I mean, seriously, what if all ten of these girls DIE? Senpai is perfectly happy to be drooling over some new girl in a week at the most. I don’t know if you can tell, but I REALLY hate Taro Yamada.
