30 Day Anime Challenge Day 24: Best Anime Antagonist – Lord Frieza

The Worst! The Most Evil!  Lord Frieza!

4467354-tumblr_ndtxu9svtd1qdzlzpo1_500.gif

Let me tell you something; I love villains who’re the catalysis of their  series, like Lord Frieza of Dragon Ball Z. Frieza man, he was the direct cause Goku’s grand  expanding adventure.  If it wasn’t for Frieza aligning and betraying the Saiyans, Goku would had never been sent to Earth to conquer it (which of course he never did). To say that  the Dragon Ball series would had been different would be an unbelievable  understatement.

There wouldn’t be anyone to stop the Red Ribbion Army’s ambition of world domination.  Goku and  Piccolo Jr. wouldn’t had their epic match at the  Tenkaichi Budokai. Cell wouldn’t had been created (as Cell had both Goku and Frieza’s DNA). Beerus would had never gone to Earth to search for the Super Saiyan God.  The list can keep going on how much things would had been different if Frieza  wasn’t around.

Frieza is the key of the almost everything that went down in the series.

Besides his domino effect on the series, what makes Frieza perhaps one of the best anieme antagonist, or at the very least the best villain in the DB series, is his psychotic, sadistic nature and his pure evilness.

I mean, Frieza does not give a literal fuck.  He has no conscious about his ill, brutal actions.  Torturing helpless children to death or blowing them up.  Killing surrendering men as they beg for their life while in tears.  Laughing in joy in the destruction he causes throughout the universe. He has no care about anything he does.   He simply loves what he does best – killing and causing pain.

Kid_gohan_fireza.png

In fact, using pain, as well as fear, torture, murder, and destruction is how he build his empire.  There (for the most part) are no negotiations or win-win with him; It’s either you work for him, reign over your planet, or he’s gonna kill you, the planet’s entire population, and reign over it.

Regardless, he’s getting what he desires.

Frieza – you’re truly the worst.

‘Unresisting, the people run and hide
Even those who bow to him are burnt to cinders
Genocide, armed oppression
The dictator laughs as he tramples them’

– Maximum the Hormone, F (Frieza tribute song)

 

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 23: Most Hated Character (Kinzo Ushiromiya of Umineko no Naku Koro ni)

Kinzo. Fuck you.

Kinzo Ushiromiya; the patriarch of the (in)famous multi-billion dollar Ushiromiya family. He’s a superior demon summoner and black magic user, owner of the private island of gold: Rokkenjima, diligent businessman, and an abusive, psychotic piece of shit.   This man, boy.  Let me tell you why I hate this  how horrible dude.

ominous-kinzo

 

Prior to the Umineko series, he lost his lover, Beatrice Castiglioni (who died during childbirth) and was grief stricken.  Honoring her, he named their (illegitimate) daughter “Beatrice”, after the mother. Cool.  Whatever helps you overcome grief . What’s not fucking cool was Kinzo raping and impregnating his teenage daughter – because she resembled his lover.

That’s fucking sick.

Beatrice.Castiglioni.full.1891578.jpg

Beatrice Castiglioni.  Kinzo’s late mistress.

having-fun.jpg

Beatrice Ushiromiya – daughter of Kinzo. She’s a lovely, charismatic  young lass with cowtits and is a huge fan of weird, outlandish kinky BDSM play.

Oh, it gets worse. This wouldn’t be the last time he abused his children.  Yes.  Children.  I did say Beatrice was his love child.  So, what about his real children? Well,  to “toughen up” the others  (Kruass, Eva, Rudolf, and Rosa)  for the real and business world, he  physically, emotionally and psychologically abused them. Naturally, his abusive ways caused his children to disdain him.  Worse, his children would pass down the cycle of abusive towards their own, and in many causes, the siblings would abuse each other – Kruass (the eldest) being the worst offender.

Kinzo lifting and chocking Kruass

Due to Kinzo’s abusive parenting and teachings, Krauss emulated his dad’s abuse. He would emotionally bullying his little sister, Eva  (as well as being sexist towards her).  This created much disdain in and anger in her heart, which she passes down to her husband, the kind-hearted Hideyoshi (who loves Eva to death), and her only child, George.  Further in the future, Eva passes the abuse down to her niece, Ange, but more on her later. Let’s focus on Eva’s sister, Rosa.

Rosa (just like her only sister Eva), was too abused by not only Kinzo and Krauss, but her other siblings as well (due to her status as the youngest).  Lacking someone to hurt in their family to soothe her rage, she had nobody to further the chain of abuse, until she had her daughter, Maria. Rosa (never recovered or attacking her pain in a healthy matter) starts to abuse Maria, verbally and physically beating her.

unlimitedslapworks.jpg

fate/rosa

See how Kinzo’s chain of abuse goes further?  Kinzo abuses Krauss, whom abuses Rosa, who in turn abuses her daughter, Maria.   Now his grandchildren are affected by the abuse her created.   Speaking of his grandchildren, let’s go back to series best girl Ange.

smiling-ange.jpg

Ange smiling for once in her life.

So Ange. Her entire family (sans Eva) was massacred on Rokkenjima (due to Kinzo’s bullshit), leaving her orphaned.  Eva, being the “good” aunt that she is, adopts Ange.  The two somewhat got along, until the stress  of her family’s  deaths (as well as the media accusing her for their murders) took its toll on her.   Eva in turn, took her anger out on Ange, putting her through the same abusive treatment as her father did her.  This ruined Ange’s  already troubling mental state.  Due to Eva’s abuse (among other things), Ange  would grow to hate herself, becoming suicidal.  In one scene, Ange is seen lashing out on her best friend, Mammon and her sisters.  She calls them “useless” and wish that they all die.

Even after his death, Kinzo’s abusive cycle  continues.

 

original

Remember how I said that the massacre  of Rokkenjima was due to Kinzo’s bullsht in the last paragraph?  Well, Kinzo is not above having his own family members killed for his own desires.

As mentioned earlier, Kinzo dedicated his life  to learning summoning and  black magic, and studying occult spells. His plan was to master black magic in order to revive Beatrice.  Not his lover Beatrice, but their daughter.  The same daughter that he raped.  He wants to see her once more So, he successfully revives Beatrice, right?  However, as exchange for her revival, Kinzo must sacrifice a few people.

000247872

Six members of the Ushiromiya family sacrificed to Beatrice 

Kinzo selects his own family members as sacrifices. He seems them as vultures after his riches.  He believes his nether children nor his grandchildren gives a damn about him (as they rightfully should not), and wants them all dead.   Beatrice kills them for him, nad in turns – kills her abuser Kinzo.

Kinzo burning alive by Beatrice;s magic.

Kinzo if you think about it, is the main source of his entire family’s pain and suffering, from him raping his daughter, abusing his children.  The same abuse in which was passed on to his kids down to their own.  By direct and indirection action, he ruined his family.

Fuck you Kinzo.

AFTERWORD

Whew.  I didn’t expect this post to go on that long, but I figure I would provide details and proof to show how much I despise this dude.  This would had been much longer if I would had gotten drunk  to write about how much I hate Kinzo as I originally planned lmfao (all the liquor stores in my area were closed at the time of writing the first draft..  You know those 3 o’ clock A.M.  alcohol laws can be.

 

Fuck you, Kinzo.

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 22: Favorite Romantic Couple (Haruka and Michiru)

Ahh late 90s/early 2000s English anime dubbing. Cloverway way cool with a nine year old  girl trying to hook up with a horse, but two lesbians Sailor Scouts dating and loving each other was wrong.  So rather just censor them just a little bit as say best friends (who were a tad wee too close to be just best friends), let’s make them cousins.  In fact, let’s not just make them cousins, but  also keep their original Japanese never incestuous-in-the-first-place lesbian relationship intact – thus creating two cousins who were fucking each other like they’re from Alabama, USA.

Great job Cloverway!

38.jpg

Ya younger Sailor Moon fans best be happy ya didn’t have to deal with such awful (and homophobic) censorship.  These niggas just could had called them best friends (who were a wee bit too close to be just friends) but cousins? Sigh.

“My first kiss was with was Brad, the cutest guy in school” lmfao get that bullshit out my face.

 

Haruka-und-Michiru-sailor-uranus-and-sailor-neptune-13100844-500-378.jpg

But yea, Haruka and Michiru, they’re my favorite anime couple because of how well written they are as a same sex couple. I love how they were treated  like a normal everyday couple, and not like some freak show just because they were homosexuals. (Remember kids, this was the 90s when homosexual and minority characters were written as jokes or “magical”.)

Haruka and Michiru’s relationship also felt legit, like what you see any other couple do in real life – holding hands, teasing each other, natural chemistry off each other, etc.   It didn’t felt force at all – like a real relationship.

Hope you enjoy this quick post.  Tell me in the comments section below who are some of your favorite anime couples!

Before I go, let me leave ya with this:

First Episode. First Impressions. One Shot: Kakegurui

You only get one shot.  If the first episode of an anime doesn’t impress me –  it’s getting dropped.

Did Kakegurui’s first episode impressed me, or did I have to drop it?   Let’s find out!
Summary

In Hyakkau Private Academy, status is everything. Gambling is law.  Money rules all.

Gambling_Den.png

 

‘Cash rules everything around me.
C.R.E.A.M. get the money
Dollar dollar bill ya’ll’

-Wu Tang Clan

Students with high status are royally treated and rewarded. The low aren’t considered human – treated as pets and furniture. To obtain the high status, you must gamble.  Money.  Power.  Respect.  Anything and everything you want in Hyakkau can be obtained – but only if you gamble.

We’re presented with the risk/reward premises of Kakegurui  early on through an intense game of Poker between two students: the sadistic gambling queen Mary Saotome, and the lowly Ryota Suzui.   The two are to their last cards, breathing heavily, and sweating hard, fatigued from the game.  Ryota reveals his hand in confidence: full house.  Upon seeing his hand, Mary starts giggling, her face inhumanly twisted.

She reveals her winning hand – Royal Straight Flush.

45js8M6 (1)

“Too bad!”  she shouts in victory.

Coldly, Mary encourages Ryota to keep his spirit up, despite the hardships he has been through the day.  Then, she calls him “Pochi” – his new name. Ryota is no longer human.  He is a “dog”.  A house pet.  His hope, faith, and humanity: gone.  Retaining it all is a fool’s game.

kkg11

Or so did he believe, until a girl named Yumeko Jabami arrived.

dream_kid

Yumeko Jabami: a seemingly sweet and modest girl.

 

The scene transition to Yumeko introducing  herself to her new classmates, wishing to befriend them all. Immediately, she becomes popular. Her male peers are captivated by her cuteness and friendliness. Even Ryota himself is charmed by her sweet  presence and beautiful appearance.  As a new student,  Yumeko needs somebody to show her around.  Ryota, due to his class rep status, is selected by his teacher to help her around.  He happily accepts his new duty.  Yumeko tells him that it’s nice to meet him, with him agreeing likewise.  Despite his new status as Mary’s house pet, Ryota’s luck is starting to change.

Speaking of Mary, she  jealous of Yumeko’s instant popularity.  She doesn’t like the new transfer student.  She stares her with disdain.

DD_5DvnW0AILLyj

So far, three characters have been introduced and established.  Ryota, the main male character and house pet of the callous supporting character, Mary, and finally, the new student and main female character, Yumeko, who has her first hater in the form of Mary.  It’s fairly obvious that Ryota and Yumeko will have the most interactions and their relationship will evolve into friendly terms. We can assume through Mary’s anger towards Yumeko that they’ll have a rivalry.  First episode in and we’re already got some good bits served to us and even a possible hook for us to go past the fist episode rather than dropping it.

Let’s move forward.

After class, Ryota gives Yumeko a tour of the school.  She’s at awe at its beauty, expressing her happiness of her  transfer to him. Next,  she notices Ryota’s dog tag around his neck –  the name “Pochi” engraved on it. She questions him why he’s wearing it, to which he doesn’t respond, turning his back towards her out of embarrassment.  He doesn’t want to let her know about his status as a pet.  After a few seconds of silence, he asks Yumeko if she ever gambled before.  Yumeko replies innocently, telling him she knows the rules of gambling through Poker and Mahjong.

Ryota replies to her answer. He starts breaking down how gambling is not just the school’s tradition, but it’s the backbone of it. After school, the rich kids turn the school into a massive gambling hall.  He tries to warn her that the rich kids will try to invite her to gamble, but is suddenly stopped by her.  She finds  the idea of gambling in school fun and starts to  giggle madly.  Ryota looks at her with shock.

There seems to be more about Yumeko than what she lets on.

that_sounds_fun.png

Later, while socializing with her new peers, Yumeko is challenged by Mary  to a gambling match: a game of rock-paper-scissors in card game form.   Mary seeks to humiliate Yumeko for stealing her spotlight, and sets her up as her latest sucker.  Yumeko, unaware of Mary’s plan, accepts her challenge.  Everyone is at  abuzz  about the challenge,  and prep the classroom, transforming it into a gambling den.  After the room is set up, Mary explains the rules of voting-rock-paper-scissors to Yumeko.

 

Both girls play their first  card.  Mary draws scissors and Yumeko  draws rock, winning the first round.   Mary congrats Yumeko on her first win and allows her to place the next bet. Yumeko boldly bets 50 chips (valued at 50,000 yen); a move that surprises and socks everyone.  Yumeko is chill about her bold move, thinking nothing of it.  Both girls draw rock from their hands, resulting in a tie. They continue, Mary playing rock once more and Yumeko with scissors.  Obviously, Mary wins. Following that, Yumeko wins the next round, betting 50 chips once again.  After that,  Yumeko starts to lose each hand, losing all her chips in the process, but again,  she’s still in her calm and chill state.

chill_yumeko

Mary starts celebrating her apparent victory, She asks Yumeko if she want to continue her losing streak.  Yumeko doesn’t reply, which prompts Mary to start laughing at and taunting her opponent,  asking her if  she has cold feet. Mary’s an incredibly arrogant and prideful player. She enjoys taunting her opponent and thinks herself as a paragon of superiority.

I like that. Mary, you’re the second best girl so far.

mary_weird_face

Yumeko, still stoic and calm, informs Mary that the game has just truly started. She requests one final match, which Mary (cockily) agrees to.  Mary believes she’s can force her into an unpayable debt, thus forcing Yumeko to become her new pet.  Mary starts praising herself and  calls Yumeko foolish. She can’t believe Yumeko  wants to play against her once more. She then questions the “foolish” Yumeko how could she possibly continue the game if she doesn’t have any chips left.

Yumeko may not have any chips left, but she has something much more exciting to offer – money.

Yumeko_Cash_Bet.png

Yumeko bets real cash – 10,000,000 yen (USD $88,760 as of July 20th 2017) in stacks to be exact. Mary is shocked – offended even.  She starts to lose her mind, demanding Yumeko to explain why she carries so much cash on her.  She assumes that Yumeko can’t afford to gamble such an outlandish amount of money away on a simple game.  She didn’t expect her seemingly naïve and innocent opponent to take the game to a serious route.

She calls Yumeko crazy, but the girl doesn’t seem to be mind being called crazy.  In fact, she loves it. She becomes enthusiastic about the new risks.  Her eyes start to glow red, demonic like even.  She explains how the lifeblood of money rules the world.  She gets excited explaining to Mary how the risk and craziness of gambling makes the game even more fun.   Yumeko loves money.  Yumeko loves high risks.  Yumeko loves insanity.

Yumeko loves gambling.

‘Maddness is the essence of gambling, isn’t it?’

-Yumeko Jabemi

QvQR1So

(Alright.  So Yumeko’s true personality [or at least parts of it] is revealed.  She ins’t this modest and humble girl that she originally lead everyone to believe (althrough the OP animation foreshadow that, but whatever).  Like a seasoned gambler, she conceals her hard earned knowledge of the game.  Yumeko (obviously) is a different person when she takes a game seriously, taking a simple friendly game to high risk and rewards levels – because she loves it.

I’m hooked. No need to drop this anime on episode 1.)

Mary is enraged. She believes Yumeko is mocking her with her reckless behavior, and refuses her offer. Unemotionally, Yumeko taunts her – asking Mary if she has cold as she did her.  Pissed, Mary accepts and regains her confidence.  She believes that she can still win; entrusting her victory in the fact her classmate are voting in her favor (of course, Mary does have them in her pockets, taking advantage of their needs and wants).

marys_overconfidence.png

However, Yumeko is hip to Mary plans and exposes her.

Yumeko  figures that Mary has about 10-20 people voting in her favor – a fact she hid poorly.  Yumeko  notices that Mary  was playing the same cards twice, mixed her cards while she wasn’t betting,  and their peers’ reacting to their plays, sending each other signals to inform Mary on which card to play.  She finishes with telling her that she can’t fool anyone if she isn’t prepared to lose money.  Mary becomes enraged once more. Her plans broken down and revealed! But, she believes that Yumeko is merely bluffing!  She couldn’t be that clever!  She has no proof that Mary’s trying to play the system!  With her egotistical mindset, Mary believes she can still win. She plays her final card: Paper.   She slams her card down with the highest of confidence – but it’s all for naught.

marys_losing_card.png

Yumeko, with her sweet and friendly smile, reveals her winning card: Scissors.

yumeko_winning_hand.png

Everyone starts to freak out in shock.  Mary, the gambling queen of Hyakkau , has been dethroned. She starts to blank out, withdrawn in her thoughts.  She just lost 10,000,000 yen – which she lacks.  Yumeko demands that she pay up ASAP  In shame, Mary bows her head, grits her teeth, and confesses to the victor that she lacks  the money.  Yumeko (back to her normal innocent nature), tells Mary that the joy of the game and it stakes was payment enough. She cheerfully leaves the room, expressing her hopes that her new classmates will treat her as an equal.

IMPRESSIONS

For a first episode, Kakegurui is excellent, and right on the jump! I like how we’re treated to the premise right away: gambling is law and status. An example of the risk and reward of obtaining victory or losing are presented – with Suzui becoming a pet to Mary, and Mary owing debt to Yumeko after losing to her.  Like gambling itself, matches are exciting and the excitement factor is  increased when the stakes are higher, as we see with Yumeko betting cash rather than simple plastic chips.

One thing that I’ve noticed that makes me enjoy the anime is the facial expressions of each characters and how it’s link to their reaction.  Yumeko with her eyes widing, twisted smile, and facial blushing as she explains how much gambling gives her pleasure, or with Mary’s anger towards defeat expressed through her gritting her teeth, body trembling, lips quivering, and eye twitching.

I am looking forward to how this anime will playout throughout the summer season as it looks promising and refreshing (by my taste).  Once completed, I’ll give the series an in-depth review and possible analysis in the future!

So, to answer my question:  Did Kakeugurui impressed me?
Yes!  Yes it did!

If you have any anime I should watch this season, please let me know in the comment section below!    I need to build up my anime game this year!

 

 

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 21: Your Anime Crush

Ahh anime crushes.  Yes crushes, as in more than one.  I’m an expert when it comes to anime waifus.   I believe, no, I know have a superior eagle eye when it comes to spotting a good series waifu.  So, how many waifus do I have?

A lot (sadly).  I won’t go over all of them, as I have to get ready for work soon, so I’m just going to focus on my first four anime crushes from my childhood: Sabrina from Pokemon, Hotaru Tomoe and  Ami Mizuno from Sailor Moon, and Washu from Tenchi Muyo.

Sabrina

Sabrina_anime.jpg

Sabrina is pretty damn interesting. As a kid, I loved that she has some cool ass psychic powers; a trait that set her apart from the rest of the gym leaders.  There was also that stern, cruel, almost sadistic  look she had on her face throughout her arc that I really like. She also had a whip and called herself the Mistress of Psychic Pokemon…alright so that may explain a few things about myself that I probably should not had posted here.

Also her laugh was cute:

Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn

sailor_saturn

Worse girl

Me having a fictional crush on Hotaru as a kid may had been the first sign that I  low high-key would have a thing for quiet, “creepy” and “weird” girls.

Also as Saturn, I love her cold, serious look – incredibly opposite from her civilian personality.

Sailor-moon-crystal-season-3-saturn.jpg
Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury

ami_mizuno_sul_computer.jpg

Sailor Mercury may had been the first sign that I’d high-key have a thing for dorky,  bookworm  computer nerd girls.

 

Washu

washu

While I’m on the subject of smart, nerdy girls, Washu is the best.  My number one favorite thing about her besides her smarts, was how incredibly cocky and prideful she was towards herself.   This woman even created two puppets modeled after her that would celebrate her genius each time she did something amazing (that some shit I would do).

 

There’s also this infamous scene from the OVA that solidifed her waifu status for me:

 

So fellow weeaboos, who’re your anime crushes?  Feel free to comment in the comment sections below!

Kakegurui Is Execellent (So Far)

So far, Kakegurui is excellent! I like how episode 1 presents the series premise is presented right away: gambling is law. status is everything, and winning or losing has their risk and rewards.

The gambling matches are exciting, full of energy, and I love how there are details to the character’s facial expression and body language during a game.

I’m looking forward to how this anime will play out this season. Expect a in-depth review of the series once the first season is completed.

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 20: Favorite Supporting Character (Reigen, Mob Pyscho 100)

Reigen Arataka of Mob Pyscho 100 is truly a supportive character.   Throughout the series, he offers and lends his advice and knowledge to Mob, helping him grow into a better person both in terms of his powers and overal life. He’s like a life coach.  A life coach who scams people using his gift of the silver tongue, but a life coach regardless.

CqfcEfKVUAAJ_uz

While he  has no qualms or guilt about scamming others with his bullshit “psychic” business , he isn’t a terrible person.  In fact, he’s rather a very caring and kind person, as we see  with his interactions with Mob.   Reigen helps the introvert Mob interact with people,  lending an ear to his problems,  and help him come to grips with his extraordinary ESP powers; suggesting that he uses his powers to help others and himself.

Reigan even risked his life for Mob; taking a “fatal” sword strike from Scar member Sakurai – but not before telling Mob not to give in to the murderous intent and vengeful feelings from watching his friends being hurt (he does not want Mob to live a life of regret).

tumblr_inline_odrkwwH3bZ1td3m0t_540.png

As an adult who may have used my own silver tongue as a dirty method to get my way   too use my knowledge and charm to help others, I like Reigen.  I see parallels of his personality with my own: the willingness of helping others through solid advice, a caring heart, speaking the real, blunt truth, and somebody who wants to see people do better in their lives (and tricking stupid people and taking advantage of their oblivious nature).  In addition, Reigen is the only adult supporting character in the series, so that’s a bonus. I would love to be a mentor to the next generation and guide them through life like he does with Mob and his friends.

flashback.png

Reigan is truly a supportive character.  Yea, he might be a bit of a scam artist who swindles folks out of their cash with straight up lies, but he’s not a bad person. He legitimately wants to help people in need as well as seeing the best out of Mob.

 

Reigan, you’re an alright guy!

‘Why do you have to be like them?  You’re the protagonist of your own life, aren’t you?’

-Reigan to Mob.

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 19: Favorite Comedic Character

Laughing at the suffering of fictional characters is comedy, right?

As somebody with a rather terrible sense of humor, I can find humor in even the most horrible of situations.  Besides, comedy is what help us human cope.  To help you cope with whatever you may be going through, here are just a few of my favorite comedic characters.

Hotaru Tomoe (Sailor Moon)

tumblr_osg4q8A2CY1w4wyywo1_540.jpg

Her entire existence is a cruel joke from God.  Or Queen Serenity whoever the fuck is their deity in that universe.

 

Ange Ushiromiya (Umineko no naku Koro ni)

thumb-1920-760753.jpg


She can crack jokes about people’s hairstyles and declare her aunt as a living joke, but her life?  A comedy waiting to happen.

Homura Akemi (Madoka Magica)

tumblr_myqm2bZ3x71sswfbao1_1280.png

Oh you miserable time lesbian. It’s so funny and cute that you thought you could save Madoka.

Akuma-homura-by-ume-aoki.jpg

In her defense, she had legit reasons to become a demon and a psychopath.

 

Yamcha (Dragon Ball Z)

yamcha.png

Do I need to say more.

Guys.  Life is too short to be mad and sad all the time.  Laugh a little, even if you need to laugh at the pain and suffering of fictional characters!

Homura is a Psychopath image source:

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 18: Favorite Animal Sidekick, Pet, or Summoning (Kyubey of Madoka Magica)

Hey, Kyubey did warn those girls.

I am totally in the “Kyubey did nothing wrong” camp.  Dude did warned those girls that the lifestyle of the magical girl isn’t one of sunshine and happiness.  Hell, I mean Madoka had to learn  that the hard way; watching Mami get decapitated like an ISIS victim. But hey, shit happens man.  Sailor Moon had her daughter Chibi-Usa die in her arms. Utena lost her parents as a kid and was kinda suicidal after that.

That’s how the magical girl world works.

I also can’t stand all ya armchair ethics analyzing idiots who say Kyubey was tricking girls to become magical girls.   He wasn’t tricking them.  He was simply encouraging their dreams of becoming a somebody in the world rather than a nobody.

It wasn’t like he was pimping them out to Johns on the streets or anything.

rsz_003_1.jpg

Besides, ain’t his fault those dumbass girls didn’t read the contract in full.  There was more than likely a death/personal injury wavier within the contract – perhaps in very small print. But still.  He shouldn’t be blamed for what Madoka and her crew went through.   That nigga was just doing his job, man.  Never got why people hated on him.

He was just a neutral observer of the unvierse. Nothing more.  Nothing less.
