i haven’t really elaborated on my feelings on rvb on here but i do like the series a lot and i’m following season 12. i dunno, a lot of details from previous seasons are blurry in my memory so i’d have to basically rewatch the whole series in order to write up a proper post about it and i dunno when i’m gonna rewatch all of rvb
there were just so many problems with korra book one, it’s unreal. not even because it’s following atla, just on its own as a series. like they introduce amon and it’s like “oh shit, this guy has a point, there’s some serious inequality in the korra world between benders and non-benders” and then they just make amon an irredeemably evil bloodbender and never address the fact that he had a very valid point. amon’s evil so that means they don’t have to care about the interesting social conflict they were setting up anymore. they had that one douchey bender guy lose his bending and instead of using that to say “hey, amon is wrong, people who can’t bend aren’t totally useless” and address what was introduced as a core theme of the series they just had him mope around for two scenes and wrote him out of the story, proving amon right by showing that a character who stops bending is no longer relevant to the plot. korra was set up for some serious character development and then proceeded to learn NOTHING over the course of the season. there was so much setup with her having to grow as a person before she could learn airbending and then they just let her figure out “aggressive airbending” or some shit all of a sudden to beat amon so that she didn’t have to change. mako is just a fucking prick that korra falls in love with for some reason. bolin was only really used so that there could be a love triangle for some reason and then relegated to the occasional comic relief bit. the competitive bending thing could’ve been used so well but it just ended up feeling like a few episodes of filler in a series with no room for filler
they do almost the exact same thing as what happened with amon in the beginning of book two by bringing up the fact that the modern world is so much less connected to the spirit world than previous generations and then just painting the guy who brought it up in the first place as totally evil so they don’t have to talk about it as much. and then in the end of the season korra loses all of her connection to her past lives and stops being a bridge to the spirit world and becomes the last avatar like what the fuck
why was the first avatar named wan. his name is one. fuck this show
korra book one started off really well and then went downhill almost immediately and just sucked. i tried to give book two a chance but when the korra’s uncle guy who was big on spirits ended up being mustache-twirlingly evil at the end of the premiere i just completely gave up
a PONY HOUSE!!!
did everyone just forget that korra is a horribly written series and go into “oh no we have to save the show!!” mode
Took a break from doing game team stuff to doodle my favorite Cucumber Quest character, Saturday! I can’t wait to know more about her, and I also want to animate her some time!!
"1P" - Contra: Hard Corps (Konami - Genesis - 1994)
why are people ignoring the part where i said “i don’t agree with everything anita sarkeesian has to say” so they can try and pick arguments with me about her shut up i don’t care
it just baffles me that anita sarkeesian of all people is the poster child of “angry feminists trying to ruin video games”
like yeah okay it’s shitty that she’s used peoples’ art without permission and she takes a ridiculous amount of time to put out new videos and i don’t agree with EVERYTHING she says
but really when you get down to it she’s just saying things like “we should use the damsel in distress trope less often” or “we should have more female protagonists in games that aren’t just smurfettes” and that’s some really basic shit but people still get SO up in arms about it it’s absurd
