the most underrated scene/exchange in always sunny is when dee stutters through her fake backstory of her grandpa dying of throat cancer from some bad pussy and mac and charlie are so impressed charlie ends up putting her at the head of his transformer suit
I was rewatching 6.8 again and something struck me about this scene.
In this scene we see Delia talking about Patsy, she’s scared and alone. Patsy is the only one who truly understands and knows her. They quite literally piece together like a jigsaw and are not whole without one another. When Delia can’t get in touch with Patsy she fears she’ll never be whole again, she’ll never experience love in that way again and no one will truly understand her. “she’s vanished” and “i’ve just disappeared” emphasises that they cannot truly exist without one another. In this scene Delia is facing the heartbreaking possibility of a future without Patsy.
But what struck me about this scene is that everything Delia is voicing is exactly how Patsy would have felt when Delia had her accident. Delia had no memory of Patsy following the accident, Delia wasn’t herself and therefore became someone Patsy “knew once.” Delia’s memory had vanished and thus all recollection of her relationship with Patsy. She couldn’t be reached during this time. And it was as if Delia had vanished from Patsy. Patsy faced the heartbreaking possibility of a future without Delia.
It’s not exactly a parallel but it’s interesting to see that they’ve now both experienced the fear of having to live without one another. How they’ve both had to face a future alone, knowing they’d never be who they truly are again without one another.
Hello! I’m just here to remind you that there is a scene during The Dream Thieves in which The Gray Man debates his skills on weaving a flower crown for Blue’s mom. This is a hit man we’re talking about here. That is all.
However, we’re going to do something different today…

On the topic of the Netflix Death Note movie thing, from someone who’s been a fan of the manga for a long time now—
I just wanna say that while I’m not super excited about it, I wouldn’t crucify it for not being 100% loyal to the original story. Death Note already has 3 live action movies (which are really fucking good!), besides the anime and even a musical, so what Netflix did is mostly a…… Re-interpretation? Sort of?
I know people are worried about this being white-washing, but let us remember that Keith Stanfield will be playing L, too! The fact that the cast doesn’t have japanese actors as the main characters is because this movie is set in Seatle– like I said, as in a (sort of) re-interpretation of the story. I’m not gonna lie and say I didn’t feel suspicious at first, but I’m willing to give it a shot before actually criticizing it, you know. The cast looks good, and the trailer looked really cool too, so… I decided to just wait instead of getting mad ahead of time.
Plus the japanese public actually seems excited about it!
So idk, it’s good to be concerned about stuff like this, but just… Give this one a chance before bashing it.
the thing about the raphael and izzy scenes this episode is that I almost like the portrayal of a ‘romantic’ aura that gets shattered by alec and magnus, who both react with shock and confusion and clearly see that these feelings come from the addiction - and so that shatters the glass for the audience, too, and it’s a neat way of saying 'hey, this is a toxic relationship and it shouldn’t be romanticised!’, but I’m not wholly sure that was what they were going for
Kaneki stayed with his mask until the end of his fight with Amon in the manga. Now, in the anime, kaneki took off his mask, and you’re not supposed to do that, ever. This shows the amount of trust kaneki has for Amon.
AND NOW HIS ASKING FOR HIS NAME. (the fucking feels, even tho in the manga it was much more dramatic, with tears falling from kaneki’s eyes while smiling.)
The thing with this shot, is that it’s done perfectly, it’s really clever. Kaneki looking up to meet Amon’s gaze, with his innocent, beautiful eyes (As if, accepting that he just showed his identity to a CCG, a complete stranger) with that sweet voice of his asking for Amon’s name so formally, and the smoke covering only his ghoul side so he can only look at his human side makes it all the more difficult for Amon to be rude towards him.
What I really liked about this one, is that, in the manga, Amon is downright rude to kaneki when talking to him. He said something like “Don’t fuck with me you ghoul bastard” In the anime, Amon, without hesitation said his name.
AND THEN (sorry I don’t have a gif for this one) kaneki looks down, the smoke covering his mouth, and Amon TWITCHES, I know this may sound really exaggerated, but, Amon kinda likes, observes kaneki at that part, as if he did something for Amon to pay closer attention or something. (maybe kaneki smiled?)
AND LATER ON, Kaneki and Amon fight, with kaneki’s hair covering his eyes (maybe because he’s ashamed of himself?). 100% knowing about their “enemy”, Kaneki saying that he doesn’t want to fight Amon, and Amon just wanting to talk to the poor guy, wishing they had met some other way.
MAN, what can I say about this scene, perfect.
I JUST WANT MORE LOVE FOR THIS TWO AKWARD BABIES. (Gifs are not mine)
I was married to a man once. Rotten fuck. Raised his hands at me, burned me, shared me with his men. I didn’t know any different, didn’t know I could do anything about it. Even if I had, I wouldn’t have thought I had it in me.
One day, we were in a tavern. He was hurting me. And a man saw it. And he walked over and he slit his throat.
