I just finished watching episode 3, and I’m pretty pissed. Not because the episode itself was bad, but because this entire conflict between the Northern and Southern tribes seems like something that can be resolved with only one public meeting or something.
What I mean is: nobody from the Water Tribe knows anything about diplomacy. What the hell? I swear to-
Okay, let me elaborate. Korra’s uncle brings his army to the South with the purpose of “uniting” the two tribes. His troops patrol around and act like massive bags of douche for no reason.
Maybe the people of the South spent so much time with the spirits, they forgot the normal social convetnions between humans. Anyway, I don’t see ANY reason what so ever for Korra’s uncle to have brought his troops there, except for his safety and the like.
The problem is that the people of the Southern tribe think Korra’s uncle is trying to overpower/ imprison/ control them, because he doesn’t AT ALL give an explinating as to why he’s blocking the bay or what the army is doing. This could have been avoided so fucking easily if only there was some public meeting in which everything was explained. If he had ANY common sense he would explain what the whole uniting bussiness was about. Why his troops are there.
In fact, his troop didn’t have to be there at all. I’m pretty certian the Southerners would understand, especially after Korra and her father provide some sort of reassurance or testimony after opening that portal.
And don’t you dare give me that “But the Northe and South have had a freud for years” bullshit. There was never ANY indication tha the South held a grudge against the North, except for Korra’s father disliking his brother. But he seems smart enough to know how important the spirit world and balancing it are. He, as a leader, should be able to ignore his disfunctional relationship with his brother, because of the importance of the spirit world. This should especially apply, keeping in minf the fact that he was shunned because of angering spirits. He should have cared to try and mend this whole fiasco, for the sake of his people. Especially after that first spirit attack.
There’s also something pretty unsettling about Korra’s behaviour. I can’t really put my finger on what, she just seems a bit out of character. I guess she just doesn’t seem to be acting accordingly to her situation. I understand that that’s the point - she’s confused and caught up in some foreign to her conflict, but that’s the thing. The conflict here is supposed to be a long running, tension ridden and foreign to both us, the viewers, and Korra. But it’s not. It wasn’t presented as such.
Also, where did Asami go? I want to see what’s heppening to her.
TL;DR Everybody is acting like huge tools and idiots and the whole problem here would be resolved if the characters involved just had a tiny understanding of diplomacy, how mportant the spirits in their world are and acted like the adults, experienced adults if i may add, they are fucking supposed to be! Goddamn it i am so fucking angry i have no idea what to even do with myself.
((I’m sorry if some of you hate this show i’m going to talk about, please don’t hate me forever.))
After “Free!” was officially announced and the character names were shown, most people’s reactions (from what i’ve seen) to Nagisa and Rei’s names were comparisons to Kaworu Nagisa and Rei Ayanami from Evangelion.
To be honest, the first thing that came to mind when i saw Nagisa was:
((Yes, I know that the names are spelled differently, but they are pronounced identically. And i do know that these names have different meanings, but can you tell that to my ears?))
I have no idea what even happened but for some unexplained reason i gained 3 followers in one night. What?
I may have not sent any thank you notes to all of you, but believe me, everytime i see my follower number rise,
i ask myself why people are following me at all i get all fuzzy inside. I appreciate every single one of you and always will.
It’s a very common occurrence in a show, be it animated or a sitcom, to see the children being forced to eat broccoli and usually their subplot (if they’re not the main characters) will involve them dealing with their broccoli phobia.
What I’m curious about is where this hatred for broccoli originates from. No, don’t worry, this won’t be a long essay in why broccoli is universally hated.
Personally, i actually like this vegetable. They’re especially nice when fried in this home-made sauce my grandmother made a few times…. What was i talking about? Oh, yeah.
You have to admit, broccoli is cute. It looks like a miniature trees!
I suppose the only downside is that they can give you gas sometimes.
But i digress, Ikea has these awesome vegetable plush toys which are just…
