I tend to reblog these things when i’m feeling kinda lame or unsure about myself, but i feel good today so maybe in a better mindset for this anyway. HAVE AT IT IF YOU SO DESIRE. I probably won’t publish them, or if i do i’ll use a readmore.
you either follow my twitter or have good meme taste. golf claps
32. Are you a good liar?
I used to be. Probably not anymore. I don’t like lying if i can avoid it. I typically only lied when i felt there was no other option, and even then was more likely to rest on half truths and letting people make their own (incorrect) conclusions.
75. What’s the meaning of life?
There is no inherent meaning to life. It just is. We can find personal meaning in it though.
Loads of people know what utena is, it’s a classic! I didn’t watch it as a kid though, I watched it a few years back. It seems to be decently popular on here, just not a huge active fandom bc it’s been over for years. Sometimes really beautiful fanart or gifsets pop up on my dash though!!
That aside, I think part of the issue is a lot of people watched it as kids. Utena is something that i’d encourage everyone to watch, but i wish folks would rewatch it as adults. It’s easy to relegate Anthy to the same role all the other characters do, because she is quiet and shy and passive. It’s easy to overlook her, because like many abuse survivors she’s dehumanized and silenced by everyone around her. It’s only in the final stretch that the viewer gets a clearer idea of who she is -one that doesn’t flinch from her flaws -so it’s easy to blame her for her situation and pretend that a 13 year old girl is just as accountable as a grown man for the toxic codependency.
I have a lot of strong feelings about Anthy, and while i understand people not liking her, i think it’s mostly out of internalized misogyny or a penchant for making things into black and white issues instead of understanding characters are complex, especially when abuse is involved and handled with nuance instead of stock 2D EVIL BAD GUY ABUSER & INNOCENT DAMSEL. In reality it’s very hard to leave abusive situations for most people, often because you care for the abuser despite how awful they may be.
tl;dr i love anthy and am glad you love her too anon!
13. Who is your favorite anime character?
Already answered but i tend to not have favorites so much as a lot of stuff i like for different reasons SO I’LL ANSWER AGAIN!
Reiner from snk… a lot of the reasons why i love him are spoilers for anime fans so i’ll keep it simple: he’s a complex character that’s probably too good for the series he’s in.
71. What is your zodiac sign?
81. What type of music do you like?
I like pretty much all genres, but i’m especially weak to indie hipster trash or stuff from the 80s. Not to be That Guy but a lot of contemporary vocals just don’t have the same heart to it. I can’t bust out and dramatically sing along to crystal castles like i can with oingo boingo, you know? (of there’s still plenty of strong singers out there, i just like the trends of that era a lot)
13. Who is your favorite anime character?
Ahaha oh man that’s hard… Maybe Anthy Himemiya from Utena. I watched Utena not long after removing myself from an awful situation. Anthy’s arc was empowering and personal for me, on top of her just being a stellar and compelling character.
14. Most used word?
I have no idea! Lol probably some filler word i use constantly like… like. “just” or “even” or “probably” are all up there too. Maybe fuck. I use that a lot.
