Why the hell are Japanese school girl uniforms referred to as sailor suits? Have you ever seen a sailor wear one of them before? Just imagine a big, burly man with his muscles glistening with sweat and sea spray…. and his short miniskirt flapping around his balls in the wind.
the hunger games aren’t amazingly unique or flawless or anything but I think katniss as a character is very important and i think the media misunderstands
we aren’t in it for the cute boys. we’re in it for katniss. thousands of young girls were introduced to an introverted, angry girl born into poverty and watched her become the savior of the world and the media doesn’t seem to understand that she, as a character, is important to girls. not who she dates, but her
there are literally people on tumblr who describe themselves as proud neo-nazi white supremacists who hate “anti-racists and feminist whores” but it’s the ~social justice bloggers~ that everybody complains about and makes fun of. okay
OVA “Ilse’s Notebook” “Iruze no Techō” (イルゼの手帳) Release date: December 9, 2013 lone survivor of a Survey Corps expedition, Ilse Langner, is running through the forest after her squad was killed and their horses dispersed by Titans. Making matters worse, her 3D Maneuver Gear was irreparably damaged, leaving her defenseless.
If you guys are still looking for Ilse’s Notebook subbed, here’s a link I came across!
All I want is an SnK prison AU where Ymir and Christa are cellmates and everyone knows they’re in a relationship but they assume that Ymir did something awful while Christa didn’t really do anything bad but it turns out that Ymir robbed a bakery and Christa killed three people and burned down a house
Am I the only one here seriously who fail to understand those complains over the ova? I watched the whole ova twice now to not miss anything by mistake and by all means I don´t think the animation destroyed any characterism of Hanji Zoe or Levi or the others. But let us start from the beginning:
1. I can remember at the very beginning at the time the pv vid from the ova only existed hearing people complain that it said Erwin, Hanji and Levi featuring as mains in the ova along with Ilse. Now that Erwin was not shown much like it should be people complain there was not enough Erwin and why he is even on the ova cover. SERIOUSLY!?
2. The most biggest problem people have Hanji Zoe. I have to say before Hanji Zoe is my number one character besides Levi in the manga and anime and I´m very protective over them and yet I fail to see the problem people have. Hanji Zoe was the first member in the survey corps knowing titans would be the key to humanity´s victory which she tried to explain to Erwin who failed to understand her and more thinking about the risks and dissmissing her. We get clearly shown Hanji´s widsdom she had already in the ova and her different approach for the titans than the others. That she is NOT a Titan lover freak. Exactly what we want and see her as. Hanji clearly knew of the risks but to get humanity to victory she knows sacrifices are need to be done sometimes. And she would be prepared to be one and research them for the sake of humanity. She is a reckless being sometimes but not bringing others in danger if only herself. She clearly thinks of others more than herself. And Auruo he saw it coming with what he said basically in Hanji´s eyes going against humanity.
But that´s now not the problem. So we saw Hanji being very intelligent already and we saw her everything else later than being a weak woman that needs protection. She went after the abnormal titan that could be a big step forward to a success for humanity and could protect herself. She was prepared to kill the titan even herself if needed since she took her sword in her hand. The only persons who messed up where Auruo and Levi in the end because they didn´t know the situation what Hanji saw. Hanji didn´t tried to stop Auruo because of valuing a titan more than him. This is not what the animators portraid her either if people may think so.
Later as the notebook was found Levi even had to learn that Hanji wasn´t that dumb. But that she was all the time right and researching titans would be needed. The report for Erwin, Hanji later gave to him showed us that even Erwin now understands her and so she was allowed to do her titan research finally and to capture them.
So we had Hanji being strong, Hanji showing us her widsdom, Hanji being prepared to bring humanity victory or at least a step forward to it, Hanji being not a titan lover freak who would sacrifice her comrades over them…. aren´t those all things we wanted? Aren´t those all the things Hanji actually is and we did got? Just because she did at two scenes smile people freak out? By all means even in the manga she had such moments I´m just pointing out the Eren titan arm she wanted to touch for example. In the manga even her serious character actually appears fully afterwarts season 1 of the anime. Sure they switched her once with levi but than on the other hand we had a added scene as well with her.
3. The problem with Levi people saying he´s too knight like… what was he supposed to do honestly? He was ordered by Erwin to bring her back. Of course, he would jump out and kill the titan and not just idk stand around and watch Hanji or watch Auruo get eaten. And as levihan shipper we should be a bit more happy that we got this scene. Levi still even if he was pissed at first saved her even if she didn´t needed it + Auruo in the process. You could clearly see in his eyes that he was worried as well and not just angry at her. Even Petra noticed it, you could see her sad face feeling she “lost” against Hanji. Later at the end he made Auruo even apologize to her as they all learned what is written in ilse´s notebook. And he looked quite defeated a bit as he was standing on the side. So yes I do think it was fine to make Levi the way they did it and he didn´t looked all this knight in shinning armor person like. He just exactly did what was the order from Erwin. What is his job and what he believed was right.
4. The only thing I have to aggree was that it was fanservice that they made especially appear the not yet levi squad. But it´s not THAT bothering for me. We should be happy we saw them again knowing they are dead.
So please, stop this ranting and enjoy the show and look at all the positive things the ova had as well and not just at the negative stuff they changed compared to the manga.
