It would be hilarious if Dreamworks responded to people complaining about the HTTYD 2 trailer revealing too much that their trailer for the third movie just had a clip of Toothless tilting his head and sniffing the camera. That’s it.
Sometimes Princess Bubblegum’s skin-tone is very pink
And sometimes its very white
Now, you can blame that on the lighting if you want, but I know a certain red-eating vampire who seems to have mentioned wanting to drink the red from her pretty pink face.
So there’s that.
her neck is covered in the example shown with white skin
yes i can get behind this
Dear Hollywood please employ cosplayers, they are getting things down better then you at this point.
Doma is bad and it should feel bad, especially when it comes to Mai and Anzu.
I don’t expect perfection in regards to how the YGO anime handles gender—especially since it’s based on a title that ran in SJ—but regardless of any issues its had in regards to integrating women fully into the plot, I’d say its core cast of women are interesting, unique, and well-rounded in regards to their individual personalities and goals.
Then Doma comes and pisses all over that. Specifically in how it handles the characters of Mai and Anzu.
Yes, the anime has had issues in how it’s handled Anzu in the past, but most of those were of the clumsy “uh, what do we do with the heroine?” variety, or at least restricted to a couple of episodes in a larger arc, not a consistent, ongoing breakdown of her character spanning about twenty episodes. And Mai? Mai’s entire arc is so offensive on a basic level that it completely poisons the character of Valon and anything interesting that the arc might have said about her relationship with Jounouchi.
I already know this is going to be long and image-intensive. If you’re still with me, feel free to click on the cut!
Even though I do enjoy the Doma arc, these are definitely things that upset me. Especially Mai, I tend to just skip her episodes just to not have to deal with me grumbling at the screen. Also thank you for pointing out the thing with Anzu, cause I know that scene always really bothered me, but I could never really put my finger on why.
Anyway, really good read.
the dungeon dice monsters arc is so damn good in the manga like
- yugi plays the entire game against otogi and wins
- yami bakura shows up and yells at yugi for losing the puzzle but also encourages him to win and says he’s the only person worthy of the puzzle
- dungeon dice monsters is actually one of kazuki takahashi’s best games despite the anime making it look all simple and boring
- in the anime otogi’s antagonism towards jonouchi is toned down but also emphasized more and takes away from centrality of yugi vs. otogi
- otogi’s kind of a bastard but also insists on winning the puzzle fair and square. when his dad smashes the puzzle to pieces, he pauses their game to help him pick up the pieces
- please read the manga
I whole heartedly agree. I love this arc in the manga. It was something I really wasn’t able to enjoy in the anime, something that made me dislike Otogi greatly in my childhood years.
I really wasn’t expecting to like it when I read the manga, but it quickly ended up becoming my favorite chapter. I think it really came together, and I really was able to enjoy Otogi’s character and development. The stakes are sooo much higher, and so much more personal. Much more so, I think, than the way they broke it up in the anime. (If you don’t know they broke this manga chapter into two arcs in the anime. One was with Otogi and DDM. The other was with Marik and Bandit Keith stealing the puzzle.) The scene with Jonouchi at the end is still a really poignant scene for me, and after everything it’s so satisfying to see him carry Yugi out to safety.
Okay I’m done gushing about this chapter. It’s just a real favorite to me. Guys seriously, go read it if you haven’t already.
PLEASE, STOP POSTING UNSOURCED FANARTS
:c :c :c Jack was probably my least favourite of the most prominent characters, but did that stop them? Nooo, noo it didn’t!*pat pat* Me too.How did you learn about your dog, btw? It took several vets before it was discovered that our cat was blind.
Well I knew she was blind or at least going blind for almost two months. I noticed her mannerisms were off and that she was bumping into a lot of things. But my parents refused to believe me cause she navigated really well. Not to mention the vet is very expensive. But when we did take her the vet knew almost immediately that she was blind. Maybe it’s because it took us two months to get her checked out?
Today I’m charged with Princess-proofing the house. Got a little pamphlet of things to do and everything.
