My dad credits this as his favorite photo of me.
When I was younger, I was very socially anxious. I hated crowds, hated attention, hated being up on stage. In preschool there was this little Halloween show that we put on, and man, I did not want to do that shit, let me tell you. All those parents watching me sing some stupid song? Nah, that ain’t me.
But I was forced to, and I was pissed about it. My dad was in the audience, taking pictures and enjoying the show. In that moment, I swear, my tiny four year old was pure rage and resentment. I felt the word “fuck” years before I knew what it was.
My dad pointed the camera at me, and I turned, and I looked. I gave him the look that summed up all the anger, all the absolute fury that was brewing inside me. He says that he had never before seen such a perfect depiction of total and complete hatred. In his four year old son.
To this day whenever I get pissed, he calls me “Buzz Lightyear”.
I felt the word “fuck” years before I knew what it was.
Yuoaman Does the Mango: Bakumatsu Rock Episode 5
Five episodes in and Bakumatsu Rock remains as campy and ridiculous as ever. This is definitely something I appreciate, since the few times the series has attempted to be dramatic have felt wholly out of place. I mean: the series is literally about the power of rock and friendship, there are very few ways to spin that in a dramatic way without it falling flat on its face.
Episode 5 moves the action outside of Kyoto for the first time and we see just how powerful Heaven’s Song can be when not combated. The episode also separates Soji Okita from the rest of the Shinsengumi for the first time, and we get some hints toward his motivations and his character that we haven’t seen in the series until now. Of the main trio Katsura is the focal character, as he was in the last episode, and we see that his struggles with self-doubt persist.
Also, the bad CG is back in the performances, sadly, and it brings with it some terrible limited animation. It really is a shame, though, because these scenes have the potential to be awesome, but with them looking as terrible as they do I just can’t get into them as much as I would like.
TL;DR: still fun mango, somewhat reokitamended
i could get this image printed on a dakimakura. nothing is stopping me. its the right dimensions and resolution and size and i have the money. i could literally own a fucked up anime sex pillow but with an image of French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. what a time to be alive
