I forgot how much I miss gravity falls

I guess I could call it TFW no GF

So the thing I mentioned being busy doing with my friends last week were some let’s play videos of some SNES and NES games.

We did

  • X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse (SNES)
  • Blades of Steel (NES)
  • Capcom’s Soccer Shootout (SNES)
  • International Super Star Soccer (SNES) (Unfortunately we lost this one)
  • Metal Storm (NES)


I’ve been editing and posting them on our group’s youtube account
X-Men is going to be 17 episodes in total, the newest online is 8.
Blades of Steel and Soccer Shootout are 2 episodes each and they’re already up. And Metal Storm will start as soon as X-Men finishes.

The thing is, I made a thing for the last episode of Metal Storm, and I really want to post it for everyone to see it like NOW, but I don’t want to spoil the surprise for my friends and whoever is watching our videos, so I have to wait, and it’s killing me.

Client: I threw out that black pen, it was out of ink.

Me: What black pen?

Client: The one that was lying on your tablet.

Me: You threw out my $150 Wacom pen?

Client: I tried writing with it and it didn’t work. It must’ve been out of ink.

this almost made me cry

this is simultaenously the best and worst submission i’ve ever seen from Clients from Hell.

I feel ill

What do you think about kill la kill?

whythatsbullshit:

I really liked Kill la Kill. It was funny, over-the-top, pulpy action with memorable music and characters. While it certainly had flaws, it was still way more fun and entertaining than its premise suggests. 7/10. 

If you’re wondering what I think about the blatant sexualization that they were going for, the answer is a bit more complicated. Now, yes, there’s an in-universe explanation for why they wear so little, but because this isn’t based on a true story or anything, I’m going to assume that the show had writers: writers who certainly didn’t have to include a little rule about nudity and uniforms when they were fleshing out the script. So “but they explained why” doesn’t really excuse why they were written into that situation in the first place.

But hear me out, because there’s still a reason behind all of this: satire. KIll la Kill certainly does not take itself seriously and it spends a lot of time lampooning the entire “sexy schoolgirls” fad in anime. The sexualization is so ridiculous and so over-the-top that it puts the “male gaze” in the spotlight rather than hidden in subtle pantyshots and boob-level camera angles, mockingly asking “is this really what you want?” It’s actually pretty clever in a way, by being so overdramatic about everything, even the clothing. 

Of course, there’s a flaw in the “they did it for the satire” explanation, but it’s not really their (the studios) fault. Even if they included obvious exploitation in their show just to point out how silly exploitation is…well, they kinda sorta still put it in there. See this review of Lollipop Chainsaw by zeropunctuation to get the idea (around 2 minutes in). “Just because you’re being ironically fetishistic doesn’t mean people aren’t jerking off to it.”

and yet

fanservice for the girls gets lampooned hard. focusing on one while disregarding the other takes out the context that makes the satire complete. There’s a whole legion of bishonen that form an army which gets lithe and nude with only belts and lensflare to cover up.

People will popularly say that oversexualization in media of men are “power fantasies” because while those same men are next to naked, or are in revealing clothing, they are still idealizations who are imbued with much agency and power over their own fate and in contrast to the ineffectual female cast. Their sexual portrayal merely is in spite of their ability to directly influence the plot with their own decisions and their multidimensional character traits and development.

Consider that the power fantasy in Kill La Kill is squarely in the court of the female cast. Ryuko and Satsuki represent the female power fantasy or at the very least, a glimpse into what characters like the superheros in The Avengers or other “male power fantasies” are like. Captain America doesnt need a skintight, shape filling leotard to fight motherfuckers when he could just use military fatigues. However, those in nudist beach, the males such as Aikuro, are ineffectual and just cant stop making a sexual exposition before the audience and the “tired of it” protagonists for tired fanservice. Aikuro exists as a dehumanized plot tool for Ryuko and to be erotic in the process.

Take a critical lens of this piece of media and you can see that the satire is much deeper or can be read much deeper than the surface “oh, well they are still scantily clad.” Man they fucking next to a constantly stripping beta male who is helplessly throwing himself on the female protagonist to no avail, who fucking accomplishes nothing but look naked/sexualized on the sidelines for relief from the female protagonists and getting BTFO when they try to help.

"Just because you’re being ironically fetishistic doesn’t mean people aren’t jerking off to it."
And My Little Pony is probably the least sexualized show around and I would wager more people jerk off to it than Kill La Kill. So, what.

REBLOG IF YOU’RE AN ARTIST!!!

ask-raven-the-rabbit:

Professional or not, no matter what art style, I wanna see how many artists are out there.

toonami:

This is a shirt being worn by one of our editors at Adult Swim, Phil. It was created about a decade ago for Adult Swim employees only. It has been misconstrued as being “anti anime,” by some people. Here’s the story: back in the early days of AdultSwim.com’s message boards, there was a vocal minority of posters who passionately hated Adult Swim’s action block, which consisted of several anime shows (some of which were initially slated for Toonami). Our bump writers pulled the phrase “cuz anime is the s uck” from a poster complaining about anime on Adult Swim and ran it as a bump. We chose to make it a t-shirt as a comment on the illiteracy of L33T speak, and internet trolling in general. We wore the shirts as a badge of honor- WE LOVE ANIME, and always will. Adult Swim has been on the air since 2001, and we’ve had a commitment to anime that entire time. We still do. Cus anime is the s uck. ;)
