Umi / F / 27. This blog includes (but is not limited to): Homestuck, Prince of Tennis, Tenimyu, Hatoful Boyfriend, Kamen Rider, Super Sentai, and various other fandoms. I enjoy writing fic; most of my works are on AO3, but a few will probably be only here.

So while I was off doing a guild run on Guild Wars, KyoAni seemed to are released a picture of Momotaro with his otter spirit. So this just became pointless but it did give me an excuse to make another pic set! All pictures from the KyoAni Shop!

………..I want this movie.

OH LOOK, IT’S MY FAVORITE SCENE FROM THE WHOLE MOVIE 8D
This was immediately after he punched Sid in the face and threw him from a ledge.  There is literally nothing about the scene that is not complete perfection.

like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this

there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means seeing the world as an awful place

that idealism is— easy, i guess. butterflies and sunshine and love are easy things to have in your head.

but i’ve known since i was fifteen that idealism— faith in humanity— optimism— is the most difficult thing in the entire world.

i constantly struggle to have faith in humanity, because it’s really, really easy to lose it. it’s easy to look at the news and go “what were you expecting? of course humans behave this way.” it’s easy to see the world and go “ugh, there’s no hope there.” and the years when i believed that were easy. miserable— but easy.

it is hard work to see the good in people. it is hard work to hope. it is hard work to keep faith and love and joy and appreciation for beauty in my daily life.

and when moviemakers and tv producers and writers go “omg!!! all characters are selfish and act poorly and don’t love each other, nothing ever happens that is happy or good, that’s so much more realistic, that’s so much more adult”

no, it’s not

it’s childish.

it’s the most childish thing i can imagine.

“Whenever I saw her, I felt like I had been living in another country, doing moderately well in another language, and then she showed up speaking English and suddenly I could speak with all the complexity and nuance that I hadn’t realized was gone. With Lucy I was a native speaker.”― Ann Patchett, Truth and Beauty

“Basically, I realized I was living in that awful stage of life between twenty-six to and thirty-seven known as stupidity. It’s when you don’t know anything, not even as much as you did when you were younger, and you don’t even have a philosophy about all the things you don’t know, the way you did when you were twenty or would again when you were thirty-eight.” ― Lorrie Moore, Anagrams

I couldn’t help but draw swim boys in pajamas at Fanime because they were always on my mind 24/7. I also really missed cuddling my killer whale and dolphin dolls and had to koala hug a hotel pillow for the whole weekend

Also, thanks to everyone that stopped by to say Hi! Sorry for being super embarrassing and screaming eternal summer at all the people, but I really enjoyed Fanime and I can’t wait for AX next! >u<
