I know why it’s important to people.

It just seems a bit silly that so many people are already jumping on like “GHIBLI IS MAKING A MOVIE ABOUT LESBIANS” when there’s only a trailer out right now. People are certainly going to read it that way and that’s totally fine. I’m only think that it’s not exactly what Ghibli set out to do?

People still ship all the pairs I already mentions and that’s totally fine. I guess I’m just making a general argument that people should be mindful of what they’re saying in that context. People are hyping it up like Ghibli is doing something super progressive when saying it’s a lesbian ship or whatever is really just something someone as a fan assumes. 

I guess it’s the way I feel about Madoka Magica also. I can see why people ship certain characters and the bonds the girls have with each other are central to the show but I think it’s a bit much to come out and say, “Madoka Magica is a girl x girl anime” because it’s not. 

You can’t say Sengoku Basra is a “male x male anime” either. Yes I enjoy certain ships but it wasn’t written to be portrayed as that. 

Unpopular opinion:

I dunno how I feel about people labeling the characters from that new film as “love interests.” Because if you look at the history of Ghibli films the characters certainly express love for each other but I think only Howl and Sophie have actually kissed/ended up together? And then there’s Ponyo and Sousuke I suppose. And then in the Wind Also rises. BUT Howl’s Moving Castle is based on a novel and so is the Wind Also Rises, so the films follow the source material. 

Ashitaka and San don’t end up together. Chihiro and Haku don’t end up together. Nausicca doesn’t end up with anyone. Kiki. 

Bonds are important in Ghibli films. Love is an expression of that but that doesn’t mean they’re “Love interests.” So this new film will probably follow that trend. And “When Marnie was There” is also based on a book to my knowledge, that I know nothing about.

It just seems people are getting hyped up about something that is more likely than not going to be about a strong friendship between girls rather than the relationship between lovers or something… 

But! I’m prepared to be wrong and that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it as that sort of narrative. 

please

Yeah, women are worthy.

  • Jane Foster in What If? #10 (1978)
  • Storm in X-Men Annual #9 (1985)
  • Rogue in What If? #66 (1994)
  • Wonder Woman in DC Versus Marvel #3 (1996)
  • Black Widow in What If: Age of Ultron #3 (2014)

Storm!Thor was the best

See I love the Storm story, cause it’s not just a what if scenario or some uncannon cross over. Ororo is just that awesome.

Not to mention Storm already has weather manipulation as a mutation so she could probably do some really sick shit with the power of Thor.

Annddd we have another for Fuma! Fuma is apparently the number one contender of cleanliness.

And then there’s a vote for Kojuro, who I’m sure is used to picking up messes. And organizing.

tigermura asked:

Best one to clean ur room would be Kotaro (downside: you'd be fucking poor). Worst would probably Masamune or Motochika but you'd have a hell of a great time and a room that looks worse than before

Yeah would definitely not wish for Masamune or Motochika. 

MY REACTION WAS THAT OF HORROR AND THEN MY BROTHER IS LIKE
"She’s been cleaning her room and finding weird shit in it all day"

SO I JUST LAUGHED AND SAY, “YEAH I FOUND JOJO POSTCARDS IN THERE AND FLASHLIGHTS AHAHA” and now I’m embarrassed

THERE’S COMPANY DOWNSTAIRS AND I JUST WENT TO GIVE MY DAD TWO FLASHLIGHTS I FOUND AND I’M WEARING A WOLVERINE TEE-SHIRT AND WOLVERINE BOXERS AND A FLOWER CROWN THERE IS NO COMING BACK FROM THIS
