Alright, babies. I’ve never heard of this anime before today, and judging by the trailer’s views, neither have a lot of anime lovers. Reasons why everyone should watch it right now:
- The main protagonists are a fine as hell lady of color and her mixed daughter
- The main antagonist is a super fabulous woman of color, in an actual position of power, who rocks natural hair like a boss
- Michiko, the main character, is canonically bi and not a single fuck is given
- The art is fucking perfect
- There is an actual coherent and complex plot
- All the main characters have a billion different costumes and they are all super cosplay worthy
- There are two full seasons, both of which are already out~
The show is called Michiko & Hatchin and the first episode of the English Dub can be found in full right HERE.
WHOA, YES! You are doing yourself a huge disservice as an anime fan if you don’t give this show it’s fair shake. I marathonned all 22 episodes in one shot, I just could not put it down.
Fake Pockets: A How To
I don’t know which is better, the fact that this commercial exists or that it’s for a real product.
Lemme fucking tell you something, this shit fucking WORKS. Like damn we have a bottle at my house and IT’S FUCKIN GREAT.
I kept seeing this pop up during my Youtube searches and I FINALLY WATCHED IT AND I AM SO GLAD I DID.
I neeeed this
I wanted to make a strong mother character. The portrayal of women in epic fantasy has been problematical for a long time. These books are largely written by men but women also read them in great, great numbers. And the women in fantasy tend to be very atypical women… They tend to be the woman warrior or the spunky princess who wouldn’t accept what her father lays down, and I have those archetypes in my books as well. However, with Catelyn there is something reset for the Eleanor of Aquitaine, the figure of the woman who accepted her role and functions with a narrow society and, nonetheless, achieves considerable influence and power and authority despite accepting the risks and limitations of this society. - GRRM on Catelyn Stark
this was a real scene from a real australian movie
EVERY TIME THAT FUCKING LIZARD SHIT STARTS SCREMAING I ALMOST HAVE A STROKE I CANT STOP LAUGHING AT THIS
You don’t fuck with frillneck’s
I am honestly surprised this isnt a movie everyone has seen. Do kids in the US only watch american movies or something, I loved the shit out of this stupid talking dog movie as a kid.
Oh, they are. It’s an important part of the story, I wouldn’t take that away from them. The thing is, despite being totally different individuals, you have to realize that their soul is the same person. Let me explain.
Coming from someone who believes in and has done her homework on Reincarnation, the way I see it is a progression. You take Kikyou’s story on one end, and line up Kagome’s on the other, and it’s one long tale. Kagome is Kikyou’s character development, the ordinary woman, and the woman capable of loving Inuyasha, that Kikyou always wanted to be. I think that’s the reason Kikyou showed so much contempt toward Kagome, and why when she was dying, she was so at peace. Kikyou realized, in her final moments, that she’d get her wish. “I am finally an ordinary woman,” was Kikyou seeing her future in Kagome.
So it’s not that they’re different people, it’s why they’re different people. Kikyou seems so much older, colder, and more mature than Kagome, because she had to be. She got a shitty hand in life and she learned to deal with it, still remembering to be kind and laugh, no matter how quiet it was. Kagome, on the other hand, is young, and wild, and insecure, and temperamental, and loves so deeply and without hesitation.
In the end, Kagome is the older soul. Somewhere in her memory, she carries both Kikyou’s and her own burdens, and it makes her so incredibly strong and compassionate.
Once upon a time, in a faraway land, A young Prince lived in a shining castle Although he had everything his heart desired, The Prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. But then, one winter’s night, an old beggar-woman came to the castle, And offered him a single rose in return for shelter from the bitter cold. Repulsed by her haggard appearance, the Prince sneered at the gift and turned the old woman away, But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances, For beauty is found within. And when he dismissed her again, the old woman’s ugliness melted away To reveal a beautiful Enchantress. The Prince tried to apologize, but it was too late, For she had seen that there was no love in his heart. And as punishment, she transformed him into a hideous Beast, and placed a powerful spell on the castle, and all who lived there. Ashamed of his monstrous form, the Beast concealed himself inside his castle, with a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world. The rose she had offered was truly an enchanted rose, which would bloom until his 21st year. If he could learn to love another, and earn her love in return, By the time the last petal fell, then the spell would be broken. If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast for all time. As the years passed, he fell into despair, and lost all hope. For who could ever learn to love a Beast?
