I’ve been watching Haikyuu, a sports anime lately. Watching a sports anime makes you reminisce on all the other sports animes that you watch and the various tropes that come along with it. Like the “genius” character. Or the guy that excels and only one thing and sucks at everything else. The guy with more enthusiasm than basic playing skills.
That brings me to this very obviously not in any way animated video. It’s a bunch of clearly talented, but unorganized ballerinas frolicking for comedic effect. It’s hilarious and wonderful and I can’t help thinking that this is what a sports anime done in a traditionally shoujo area would look like.
Swap out the guys for girls, change the sport to ballet (cause ballet is both sport and art!) and add in all that other stuff. The genius, the one that can’t keep choreography straight, the one who always misses her cue. I feel like this is what a ballet sports anime would look like. Their first performance is a trainwreck! Their teacher is so pissed. Everyone laughed at them. But even with all that, they had fun. They’ll get better. They’ll become friends or enemies or lovers, or whatever it is. You know, you’ve got a lot of chemistry and hormones mixed up in these sports animes ;)
My friend wanted me to watch Haikyu!! And it was on my list, so I’ve been whizzing through the episodes at a ridiculous speed. It’s so damn cute and funny and I am really enjoying it. A sports anime without super powers. Yes please. Anyway, I’m on the last episode and this. just…how did you end up that way honey? You’re gonna hurt yourself XD
OMG! They adapted Kite into a live action? What the heck. Of all the things to adapt, some rather obscure ultraviolent female assassin flick. I watched it back in the day. I know I did. I have some little scrap of Sawa/Oburi fluff fanfic floating around in a dusty corner of my harddrive to prove it. But other than assassinating people, I couldn’t tell you about the plot. Maybe I’ll watch it for Samuel L….once it comes out on video.
Yandere Friendly and sweet on the surface, the Yandere hides a dark and twisted character underneath their smile. While normally an amiable person to hang around with, if somebody happens to emotionally hurt them then they will have befallen a terrible fate. Yanderes are unstable, and become unhealthily obsessive with their friends and objects of desire to the point of doing crazy things just to please them; and then when other people come into the mix, the bitter, irrational jealousy begins. Beware of the Yandere, for they surely have psychotic tendencies.
Well, yeah, I am pretty sweet and friendly on the outside and sour and crazy on the inside, but I’m not about to turn around and stab anybody. D:
