monogatari has an interesting story while interviewers seems like it doesn't. tbh I hate moooost ecchi but monogatari has good characters and scenes barring the ecchi, and one of my favorites (Kaiki) is a character who hasn't even got any fanservice bits (except for a brief shower scene lel).
the thing I remember about "kin" on tumblr, which is the only place I saw it, is that a lot of them tried to claim they were the character themselves and that disturbed me greatly sometimes I'm glad some of the characters I like aren't popular or liked by weirdo fandom people OT: if I've gotta give a recent example... I've seen ppl claim sayaka kanamori is trans because she's not traditionally feminine looking. I'm so tired of lgbt headcanons and people saying that the men in predominantly male cast anime Must Be Gay or that girls in all girl shows Must Be Lesbian. Shipping is so cancerous and dumb and so are people constantly trying to claim these series with mainly one gender casts have all lgbt when their sexuality isn't even fucking apparent (fanservice isn't even present in a lot of these series). Leave my haikyuu and hibike alone!! Leave them alone! also trans headcanons are way too often used for any character who doesn't conform to a certain gender norm, did people ever stop to think that androgynous looking men/women or people who don't 100% conform to gender norms can still be comfortable with the gender they were born with? Guess not
IZ's Japanese releases barring Suki to Iwasetai have been so crappy, even the b-sides from those singles post StI with capability have such poor mixing that they're almost unlistenable. Which is funny because the StI single wasn't badly mixed in comparison.
I am a fan of noisy kpop songs so I liked So What more than most people. I also think DUN DUN is EVERGLOW's best song to date. LOONA's newest title track was somewhat inconsistent with their "old" sound but the mini hearkened back to their old selves. It may have to do with the fact that I like girl group songs that sound more like boy group songs, since they have attitude behind them. I also think So What isn't an ITZY clone because it's darker and goes harder than what they've done, again, it's more like a boy group track for a girl group. i wish the line distribution in those songs weren't so unfair though (RIP onda/vivi/gowon)
the fact that ecchi has crossed the borderline of now being outright porn is proof that ecchi is crap… I have dirty humor and I enjoy gallows humor but that show is clearly just trash for the audience to fap to without substantial storyline to back it up the manga or so people have said did not have the amount of sex scenes and extraneous sexual content the anime does so the producers of the anime purposely made it more porny to appeal to drooling otaku nerds totally reasonable that funimation would drop it, it's outright porny compared to the ecchi they've licensed before, and understandably they don't want that to be their bread and butter, and even a Japanese network dropped it because they were having to censor too much content, and left it on their adult pay per view channel only. people who are claiming it's prude western censorship and that the Japanese dropped it just to port it to the ppv channel are daft, it crossed a multitude of lines and that's why they didn't want to show it. funi and Japanese cable aren't porn channels
tumblr is dying because of the porn ban and a loooot of tumblr refugees migrated to twitter kiwi is still kicking despite its numerous offenses but they're cannibalizing their own from the inside out, as mentioned above
Good for her trying to terminate her contract. She deserves better, being dungeoned for a dating scandal for multiple comebacks is ridiculous as much as I have liked some of their songs and like some of the members I can't help but feel that they deserve some level of downfall with their horrible mismanagement. one of the members went on hiatus very recently after her grandparent died, so it's not looking to get better for them
the only thing I'm glad about from all the attention he's been given is that somehow Chris Hansen got ahold of his exes to talk to them and onion's predation is finally coming to light. He got reported to the FBI I think. Now, if only something would be done to put him away in a jail cell, that would be nice. Gerg needs to be kept from underage girls, his partner, and his own kids. OT: I want to see Chris Evans play more cunning, nasty characters like Ransom from Knives Out. I know he's done jerk characters in the past but most of them weren't in good films. After seeing him play a good boi like cap for so long I just wanna see him be a lil mean. Also he looks handsomer with dark hair.
