"Charmingly useless"

I'm into puzzle games, psychological thrillers, shoujo and josei manga, milk tea, and naps.

Today I fulfilled my childhood dream. I’ve done the suit acting for ranger for the past 2/3 years and never thought I would be the actual actor. I’m so excited to be the new blue Dino Charge ranger!

Still in disbelief. Congrats dude!

nani was NINETEEN and such a fucking badass who was so protective of lilo and just ROLLED with aliens being a thing towards the end of the movie. #1 Disney relative of all time.

I have honestly been waiting AGES for the right gifset to express the wonderful perfection that is Nani. She is not only protective of Lilo, she respects the way Lilo’s imagination and quirkiness works.

Pudge the fish got a peanut butter sandwich every Thursday. Nani does not argue the logic of feeding him, only suggests an alternative sandwich when they are out of peanut butter. Lilo was allowed to take as many photos of whatever mundane or odd subjects as she wanted and Nani would get them developed. Nani recognized what were important habits for Lilo.

When Lilo asks for a pet lobster, Nani does not tell her that lobsters are not pets. She tells her, “We don’t have a lobster door, we have a dog door.” She makes sure the woman at the pound does not tell Lilo that “Stitch is not a real name”.

NANI SPENDS THE ENTIRE MOVIE MAKING SURE THAT LILO NEVER FEELS LIKE HER IDEAS ARE WRONG.

The only time we truly see Nani get angry with Lilo is when she is scared of Lilo being taken away. Nani spends the entire movie stressed out over taking care of her sister, trying to find a job, trying to make sure her sister has a friend, and yet she is always willing to put that extra effort, over and over again, to make sure that Lilo always believes that anything is possible.

This is a great moment because she probably *remembered* that Lilo said this once. And you know what? Shes not ending this day by letting her little sister think this is her fault. She’s not having an easy time trying to be a parent, but she knows none of this is her sisters fault, and shes not going to let her think it is. 

And half of her terror of losing Lilo isnt even just losing her family; its knowing that wherever Lilo goes, they won’t know how to do these things. They won’t understand her. 

What a good movie. 

Casual reminder that the reason Lilo obsessively feeds the fish is because her parents died in a rainstorm and she firmly believes Pudge controls the weather. If you pay attention to the feeding sequence you will notice that storm clouds recede and dissipate, a visual narrative that confirms this.

It’s not just a habit. It’s a very real part of Lilo’s healing process and Nani understands that.

Also if you pay attention to Nani’s room you’ll notice she had surfing posters and trophies. She was very much on her way to being a pro surfer but had to give it up to become the adult Lilo needed her to be.

And not ONCE does Nani show her sister any resentment. It’s worth it to keep her family together. This is a young woman who is willing to sacrifice all of her dreams and make incredibly grown up decisions.

What I am saying is Nani is the best disney princess of all time. Disney Queen even.

Fact, there was a deleted scene where Stitch’s shenanigans result in Pudge’s death.

"Pudge was part of our family! You don’t let your family die!"

The online review Digibro spreads awareness of just how much anime depends on sales from SO FEW people, how we take it for granted, and how there are so many behind-the-scenes business horror stories that I wasn’t even aware of!  Just be prepared for some really fast talking!

Watch it, for the sake of Digi’s broken foot! 

And if you dig his videos, support him on Patreon, and follow him on the social’z.

Some of my favourite similarities between Sailor Moon Crystal and Revolutionary Girl Utena include: the fancy rose frames when introducing a character, and the multitude of black silhouettes 

Please feel free to reblog this and add more similarities that I may not have picked up on!!!

TRC: Cosmic Love (Fanime 2014, Anime North 2014) - by NekoKitkat25hug

The stars, the moon,
they have all been blown out —
you left me in the dark

Go and watch Kat’s wonderful video — it more than does TRC justice!

Woah, this is the firs time I’ve seen an AMV using manga instead of anime, it’s beautiful.
