maybe cartoon network will be good again now that snyder is stepping down; it always seemed so unfair there wasn’t a 24-hour cartoon network for 25 year olds. maybe the new president will deliver anime and juiceboxes before naptime as well. and then he’ll let us play with fingie paints and we’ll draw all the cartoons we’re nostalgic for abloo bloo bloo blah dee bloop moooom my daipies stinky poo poo
you know, that show i’ve candidly reblogged for months?
short thoughts: it’s shitty
long thoughts: ryuko is a fun character; superficially, i get some BLEACH vibes(swords, clothes power, rough talking lead character). it’s not funny, like, at all. they don’t even make sex jokes; they’re just “damn you almost naked girl.” mako is nowhere near as adorable (yet) as tumblr wants you to think. visually it’s a marvel, which is why it’s so giffable and rebloggable without even knowing wtf is going on. the story is progressing very… typically? predictably? that second episode was like the king of anime second episodes. a quirky fight-of-the-week with much lower stakes than the premiere.
