I remembered the tokyo black cat girl one-shot from tmm earlier, I thought azumi was cute
“‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5’ sets course for 2017 release”
what do u think the Girugamesh dude is doing right now
korra not being on tv means there’s THAT many more little brown girls who aren’t going to see themselves represented in the tv shows they watch and that fucking sucks
Yoo Jae-myung, animation director of The Legend of Korra, discusses Nickelodeons initial hesitancy to accept Mike and Bryans proposal of the show… and Korra.
“The sequel focuses on the incarnation of the new Avatar, Korra, as she tries to save a city called the Republic City.”
“So, Korra is a young girl , not a boy. Heroes and protagonists are usually men.”
“That actually became a problem.
Nickelodeon was reluctant to produce this animated series at first because the protagonist was a girl.
I guess you could say that Americans are more conservative than Koreans.
The production was suspended just because the protagonist was a girl.
To compare this situation to a movie production, it’s as if the lead actor has already been cast, but the production agency decides to stop the filming because they don’t approve of the actor.”

You know what?
I’m blaming this. This is why we can’t have nice things. This is why we don’t get the episodes. This is why we don’t get commercials or proper advertising or merchandise. This is still prevalent, they’re still bitter about this, and their utter incompetence and ineptitude when it comes to marketing and promotion could not have POSSIBLY been the genuine reasons for this show’s troubles in the ratings, so it must have been because she’s a girl, so you see “we were right”. That’s all.
This viewpoint will continue until I have a better explanation from the studios. I don’t care if the episodes are on their website when I post this message and jump over to the site, my stance will remain the same. I want an explanation. If you’re not going to give me the product I want to invest in, I want an explanation as to why I can’t have it.
^^ ok about this post. the concept of “talking” period annoys the shit out of me. Nobody can agree on when the talking phase is over anyway. You need to define that shit. People use that term to avoid commitment AND to avoid investing too much; some because they don’t want to get hurt, and I get that, but people need to be up front about what they want. Just ask the damn question. Where is this going? Are you looking for something long term? Or just casual? But nobody asks that shit. One person wants a relationship, the other is seeking something like fwb, but they both use the word “talking” and nobody knows what the fuck to expect. It just ends up being so shady and confusing.
Like unless you are in the very beginning of some sort of romantic/intimate relationship with someone, you know, the getting to know you phase, the flirting, etc, there is no reason to be using this term. I see people talk about having sex on a regular with someone and be like “we’re talking”. No boo boo. You’re fucking. You’re just scared to define it because his definition might not match yours.
I held my pillow
and thought “oh well”
