Please stop spreading the misinformation that blunt metal swords can’t cut anything. They can. They are dangerous with reasonably little application of force. Most “real” swords are not kept particularly sharp because they a) do not need to be and b) a sharpened edge is more likely to chip and otherwise break. If your sword has a metal blade it needs to be treated carefully and with respect. Swinging around “blunt” swords thinking you can’t hurt anyone with them can do a lot of damage to yourself and others. Please do not be irresponsible with live steel of any sort.

I know it’s nit picking, but it’s important to fact check and have your shit straight when calling out authorities. Taking single lines out of context to make tangential, and likely inaccurate assumptions weakens your point. There are stronger, more damning things to be making issues of. — At least have the decency to spell the kid’s name right.

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.

And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.

You guys, I am just ecstatic about the JSA shoot pictures. It was raining off and on during the shoot (you can tell the before and after a bit with my wig), but I was having a blast making stupid faces for the “explosion” shots.

so what happens when two tsundere’s meet?

I don’t think I’d call Kashima a tsundere; she’s more of a narcissistic airhead? It kind of fits Hori though.

WHY IS THIS WEEK’S FOOTBALL GAME AT 4:30 ON A THURSDAY? I mean, I appreciate it not being Saturday because Disney trip, but 4:30 is kinda early. Dammit time zones.

I’m supposed to admire this guy, just like the protagonist… And he’s handsome, smart, great at sports, and kind, isn’t that right? Then why doesn’t Senpai like me?

i watched it in the wee hours of morning (about 4AM haha!) so i wasn’t supposed to laugh out loud ‘cause my siblings might wake up. the episode was really funny, and it really sticks to the manga most of the time.

my favorite part was when hori-chan
