why more people haven't watched this

Sorry, but I don’t trust people that shit on Bellamy, called him white, demonized his character, compared him to a rapist, or titled him “Genocide King” and then suddenly ship him with Raven.

Okay so here’s why the Naruto community drives me insane, I’m ready to fight some people.

So many times while watching the regular Naruto series we complained about:

  • Lack of Academy footage
  • Lack of Falling Action: or at least Falling Action that lasted more than one humorous episode
  • Lack of a slow burn Plot: it was a long convoluted journey
  • Lack of side-character development past their sad story: aka TenTen, Neji, Rock Lee, Kiba, Shino, Kankuro, etc.

I include myself in that sentence because while I love the series and always have, I’ve been a heavy critic of it. And why am I pissed off at the community?

For comments calling ‘Boruto’ a trash series, or boring, or slow, etc. all because we are finally getting what we always asked for:

  • TONS OF ACADEMY TIME, admittedly it’s more adventure-based than education-based, but it provides us a modern framework of how these ninja are being taught and cultured.

  • THIS IS THE FALLING ACTION after the Final Naruto Arc. A Youtuber (whose name I can’t recall) mentioned that while we had the ‘wedding’ arc, it didn’t last long enough for fans to breathe a sigh of relief post-Final-Battle. Boruto: Next Gen is the decompression of the storyline before it inflates again.

  • While every episode of Boruto so far occurs in a comedic-episodic fashion, there are already threads of plot connecting each one to the eventual confrontation with someone within the Foundation. But can we talk about how well it balances the slow burn of Boruto, Shikadai, and Mitsuki’s adventures as well as Sai, Shikamaru, and Naruto’s investigation?

  • The SIDE CHARACTERS have so far gotten development that is leagues beyond the og series. Inojin, Denki, and Iwabe were explored and continue to have developing moments. Just Iwabe not understanding the ‘secret plan to trick the Ghost’ in the last ep was hella detailed and EPIC. Like the female characters get SO side-shaded it’s not even real, it’s anime from Japan so I’m not super surprised. But even Sarada and Chocho have been explored and examined in the short time we had with them.

Also let’s talk about how ‘kiddy’ the show is, is it drawn and animated in a less-detailed and brightly colored format? Yes, yes it is. But the content is still rather disturbing: child soldiers trying to fight some sort of Ghost Demon that could be  the Root Foundation– the most notoriously ruthless faction of ninja in Konoha’s history. So if it was animated differently or had a darker coloring, people would say ‘wow it’s so mature’.

Naruto the original series was much the same way; pre and post Shippuden, and a movie example: Harry Potter. The tone of the animation tends to reflect the tone of the characters and their view of the world. And in such a harsh world as the Elemental Nations, I can’t imagine it will stay this way forever.

Would I have preferred a prequel series? Yeah, probably. I would have loved to see more about the Akatsuki, more about Minato and Kushina as kids, more about the Namikaze Clan, and shit, could you IMAGINE A SERIES ABOUT THE FALL OF THE UZUMAKI CLAN???? LIKE DAMN????

But unfortunately for studios, we know how their stories end and there could only be a finite amount of books written or episodes made. Even if they would SELL LIKE CRAZY.

NCT 127′s fav things to do

I didn’t know what to do for this, which is why I haven't posted also my life is falling apart again so I just googled their actual favourite hobbies outside music so here are essentially some fun facts :) - Em x

Taeil: All I could find for Taeil is that he likes listening to his fav bands such as SHINee, likes cars and also watching movies. He truly is a mysterious man.

Johnny: Johnny’s fav thing to do unsurprisingly is to joke around and make people laugh. I think this is very true. Johnny is such a little (well not so little more like super tall) sunshine.

Taeyong: Taeyong really likes to take photos apparently. He is an all round cool and artistic guy. He also likes listening to Drake because who doesn’t. 

Yuta: Yuta likes to play football (or soccer if ur American) and eat food. (Same on the last part.) He also likes to hang out with friends and do things that are fun like going on Ferris wheels.

Doyoung: He likes jogging and cooking and being a killer MC of course. He was also hard to find out about. NCT is full of the mysterious. 

Jaehyun: Jaehyun generally likes sports such as swimming and football and also watching movies especially Leonardo DiCaprio ones and also LaLa land because it has great songs he says.

Winwin: Winwin likes swimming and sleeping (again same on the latter) and to go shopping on weekends when he has spare time.

Mark: Mark likes playing sports such as badminton and ice-skating and eating cookies and cream ice cream and jjajangmyeon. (Hopefully not at the same time)

Haechan: Tbh most of the things he likes to do are music related such as playing the piano and I tried to stay away from the obvious that was music. But also annoying/ roasting Mark. Although he is a professional at that so it’s not quite a hobby.

In four words, Suzanne Warren captures the essentials of my sexuality (the majority of the time). 

Not that I don’t understand how sex works, or what sex is. I just don’t understand the big deal. I don’t understand how it makes people feel closer to each other, because so far all I’ve ever felt is used and violated. I don’t understand why I like hiking and cuddling and kissing and listening to someone’s heartbeat and holding hands and watching movies and baking and talking and basically everything you could ever do with someone more than sex. I don’t understand sex.   

Moneybags if you hate speaking in haiku, then why are you here??
Tbh he probably knew there was a door here (which is completely skippable if you look hard enough btw) and he could just scam people to pay toll.
ALSO later on he does state that he should go back to Spooky Swamp and become a haiku poet. Why would he do that if he hated it??? I bet he actual does like talking and writing haikus and he’s just lying

randomuselesstumbler  asked:

In reference to that straight Ally youtuber (i've never seen any of his videos so I can't really say) but how do we know if he's not in the closet (maybe bi?) and that's just his way to see how people wuld react to him "acting gay" (like talking about hot guys or whatever I imagine he would do to make it seem like he's baiting) to make him more comfortable with coming out?Again I rly can't say bc I haven't seen his actual videos but who knows? If he is baiting that's a shitty thing to do tho

If you’ve never watched his videos (which I don’t recommend, which is why I’m not naming him and sending them traffic) I can understand how you might want to give him the benefit of the doubt. Trust me, he’s not worth it. I don’t like to speculate about people’s sexuality, but he has always claimed to be straight. Personally, I give a side eye to anyone (regardless of sexuality) who uses deceptive thumbnails and titles like “99% straight?”, “when am I coming out?” and “my ‘straight’ roommate” paired with half naked thumbnails when the video has nothing to do with him being naked or coming out, in order to bait people into watching. That’s cheap and trashy no matter who you are. If you have to trick people into watching your videos it’s because your videos aren’t good enough to attract viewers in the first place.

Like I said in my snap, the gay baiting is gross BUT I’m more bothered by him acting as if being “ok” with gay people is somehow revolutionary when in reality all he does is talk about HIMSELF and how accepting he is and not actual LGBTQ issues. I’ve also learned he made a video about going on a date with a trans girl called “tinder terror” which….just shut the fuck up and stop embarrassing yourself. And don’t get me started on defending Donald Sterling, “I don’t see color”, “just ignore racists" & calling BLM immature. He’s trash his channel is trash and he should stop calling himself an ally cause he’s nothing more than a vulture.

anonymous asked:

Can I ask you, how do ratings work? Like I know the season 10 finale had the lowest ratings of all of them (esp s7) but does that mean fewer people watched it? so like it was because the episodes leading up to the finale were bad, so more people didnt watch the finale? or is it some sort of qualitative measure of how good (or bad) the finale was..? I mean in both cases, it was pretty much the worst finale ever but how do the ratings show that exactly? sorry for the loong question!!

AWESOME. LET ME EXPLAIN TO YOU HOW RATINGS WORK

OKAY SO, TV RATINGS (or Nielsen Ratings) ARE ESSENTIALLY A WAY TO MEASURE THE AUDIENCE.

THERE ARE DEVICES INSTALLED IN SELECTED HOMES THAT MEASURE THE VIEWING HABITS OF THE PEOPLE LIVING IN IT–LIKE, WHAT CHANNEL THEY’RE ON; IF THEY’RE STICKING THROUGHOUT THE SHOW OR SWITCHING CHANNELS, ETC.

THE SELECTED HOUSEHOLDS WILL THEN REPRESENT THE MASS AUDIENCE.

NOW, THESE RATINGS ARE USUALLY REPORTED AS “RATINGS/SHARE”

HERE ARE THE RATINGS DURING SUPERNATURAL’S SEASON 10 FINALE

THE “RATING” IS THE ESTIMATED PERCENTAGE OF THE VIEWERS IN A HOUSEHOLD WHO ARE TUNED IN TO A PARTICULAR SHOW ON THE AVERAGE MINUTE

THE “SHARE” IS THE ESTIMATED PERCENTAGE OF HOUSEHOLDS (OR PEOPLE) WHO ARE USING THE TV TO TUNE IN AT A SPECIFIC AREA, AT A SPECIFIC TIME

THE SUPERNATURAL SEASON 10 FINALE RECEIVED A 0.7/2 RATING (which is low compared to other shows obviously), SO THIS MEANS THAT OUT OF ALL THE HOUSEHOLDS WITH A TV, 0.7% WERE TUNED IN TO WATCH THE SUPERNATURAL FINALE, AND OUT OF THE ALL THE HOUSEHOLDS USING THEIR TV AT 9PM, 2% WERE TUNED IN TO SUPERNATURAL.

NOW, 0.7/2 RATING IS ACTUALLY NOT BAD FOR A CW SHOW, ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THAT ‘SUPERNATURAL’ DIDN’T HAVE ‘ARROW’ AS A LEAD-IN. (Lead-ins help carry over the audience to the next show)
AND WE ALSO HAVE TO FACTOR IN THE FACT THAT IT HAS SWITCHED TIMESLOTS WITHIN THE SEASON.

BUT, THE SEASON 9 FINALE HAD A 1.1 RATING, AND NO EPISODE IN SEASON 9 HAD A RATING BELOW 0.8% (when rounded off).

SO THE LOSS OF AUDIENCE COULD BE BECAUSE OF THE SHOW’S DOWNWARD SPIRAL, OR IT COULD BE BECAUSE THE SHOWS THAT IT’S UP AGAINST, ARE MORE FORMIDABLE COMPETITORS.

TL;DR
NIELSEN RATINGS BASICALLY DETERMINE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WHO WATCH A PARTICULAR SHOW. THIS INFORMATION IS CRUCIAL TO THE NETWORK AND ADVERTISERS, WHICH IS WHY THIS CAN MAKE OR BREAK A TV SHOW. ADVERTISERS FIND OUT WHEN AND WHERE TO PUT THEIR ADS; AND NETWORKS FIND OUT WHICH SHOW TO PICK UP OR DROP. IT’S NOT A QUALITATIVE MEASURE OF HOW GOOD OR BAD A PARTICULAR SHOW IS–SO FAR, THAT’S STILL RELATIVE.

BECAUSE SEASON 9 WAS PRETTY BIG IN TERMS OF RATINGS, BUT IT WAS STILL CRAP

Watching Luke Cage last night, unspoiled:
  • Me: They're giving this guy a boatload of audience-sympathetic dialogue. They really want us to like him or trust him a whoooole bunch all of the sudden. They're pushing him as a "good guy" way too hard. Something screwy is gonna happen.
  • Husband: Yeah? This episode?
  • Me: Yeah. Probably. This or the next. Probably this one. He's either gonna die or he's a bad guy. Definitely one or the other. They're pushing it way too hard.
  • Husband: Or he's just a good detective who's close with his partner. *smirks*
  • Me: A'scuse you what now? 😒
  • Husband: 😂
  • Me: Oh he's with the kid. Is the kid gonna kill the Guy? No. Kid's talking redemption. Kid just stepped to where he can't see the Guy in his peripheral vision. OMG he's a bad Guy and he's gonna kill the Kid, watch.
  • Husband: With what?
  • Me: I don't know. He patted and talked about his sidearm earlier when he was talking to his partner, maybe he's gonna shoo—oh wait he's messing with his tie—
  • Guy I'm talking about: *strangles kid to death with necktie*
  • Me: Damnnnnn.
  • Husband: Damn. Much cleaner.
  • Me: Yeah, he's totally working for the bad guy. And this episode has at least one more effed up thing coming too.
  • Husband: How do you know?
  • Me: *pauses to double check* Still got ten minutes left.
  • Husband: 😳 Oh crap, yeah.
  • Me: Sorry, want me to shut up?
  • Husband: Nah, I know who I married.
  • Next scene: *Detective Guy goes and spills all kindsa stuff to Cottonmouth*
  • Me: Should've seen this coming earlier OF COURSE he's got a cop on his payroll OF COURSE it's whatsherface's partner I should've thought of that before now, dang I feel dumb.
  • Husband: Breathe.
  • Next scene: *Luke gives barbershop chess playing guy a huge bag o' money*
  • Husband: Oh, THAT'S why they brought up the accountant thing earlier. He does the books.
  • Me: What have I done to you?
  • Next scene: *one more effed up thing happens*
  • Me: Toldja.
  • Husband: Feel better now?
  • Me: Yep! Still should've called it earlier on the crooked cop though, ugh.
  • Husband: You'll get 'em next time.
  • Me: Don't make fun of me.
  • Husband: 😂

cosmic-lala-latte  asked:

I watched the classic anime but I haven't watch crystal or read the manga, so I was wonder why crystal chibiusa is better/likable compared to classic chibiusa? Thanks!

Well it’s almost a universal feeling the dislikeness towards Chibiusa (except for Japan where she’s the nation sweetheart).

She comes off as a really annoying brat in the classic anime.

She’s less insufferable in the manga and way more likeable in Crystal.

One (of the few) things that Crystal has done right is that they managed to make people feel sympathy for Chibiusa by explaining flawlessly her background story and why is she acting the way she does.

Also, her voice this time around is really cute lol.

They also explained flawlessly the Crystal Tokyo story because in the classic anime it was all a bit confusing.
