I haven’t really seen the new digimon. I only season 1-3 in full. I saw bits and pieces of 4. So I am excited about seeing the old characters again. But since you said they way they recently have treated their females int eh show I am now worried.

Haa, didnt mean to kill your excitement there!

It mostly came up in Xros where Nene started out as a really interesting character, but in the second half her story arc was basically finished by someone else, she had a few scenes that were not-quite-fanservice but close enough to be uncomfortable, and most importaintly a new Digimon partner who is so sexualized that I will never stop reminding people what a terrible idea it was. The japanese card game released around then had all the female Digis is blatantly sexy positions, andthe recent games have given most of the girl Tamers revealing outfits [Which is hardly suprising since they are designed by the creator of Durarara]. So, uh, yeah.

It’s not all bad though! The Xros Hunters arc had no fanservice even with Nene and her Digimon, and while the new girl Airu wasn’t as deep as the others she was really fun and had some memorable interactions with the cast.

So who knows! Like I said, I’ll probably need a key visual or something that shows off what this new series might be like. I’d love to see Tai and Izzy again, thats for sure!

I should be more excited about the new DigiAdventure, but I’m kinda indifferent so far. Maybe after we get a key visual? [Hunters artstyle, please??]

I’m also worried that the girls will be subjected to the same fanservice and poor writing that hit Nene so hard. I don’t have a whole lot of faith in Digimon as a franchise anymore even though i did enjoy parts of Xros. Hopefully they will treat all the characters with the respect they deserve.

Also hangin’ onto this!

I am incredibly surprised at how well-received my films are in America. I never expected them to be, because even in Japan, they are highly controversial. In a typical animated film, there will be a ‘good’ character, and an ‘evil’ character. The movie will then focus on telling the story of how the good character struggles against, and eventually defeats the evil character. My films, however, do not adhere to this plot structure.

I do not think that heroes should be portrayed as strapping young men that save the day by fighting against and overpowering the evil beast. Children needn’t grow up believing that they need physical strength to be considered ‘strong’. I also find that women are all too often portrayed as weak, helpless, or in need of rescuing, and it is often a strong, young prince who comes to save her from her struggles. Many of my movies have strong female leads – brave self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe in with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a saviour. Any woman is just as capable of being a hero as any man.

When I say ‘hero’ do not picture someone with the strength to fight and conquer evil – because evil is not something that can ever be conquered or defeated. Evil is natural. It is innate in all humans. But while it can’t be defeated, it can be controlled. In order to control it, and live the life of a true hero, you must learn to see with eyes unclouded. See the good in that which is evil and the evil in that which is good. Pledge yourself to neither side, but vow instead to preserve the balance that exists between the two.

Round 2 of this weeks drawings, except these aren’t actually mine, ha.

All but like, three of these are actually like 5% of the page but I guess drawing more than one picture on a page is a no-no for kids?

Round 1 of things that were drawn in my sketchbook this week!

  • Liam eating Chinese food. My sketchbook got handed around a loooot so he got kinda thrashed this week. Sorry Liam!
  • Wheeler and Syrus Soul Eater AU. I’m surprised SE AUs aren’t way more popular since there’s a lot of room for great meister/weapon interaction, and judging my the SE fandom, it’s a shipper’s paradise. ‘I’ll die for my meister’ and whatnot. In a true AU Wheeler would probably be wearing something more Death City-esque.

  • Maka Albarn in an exercise in not being able to fix everything on the computer right away. There are some good points so I might revisit this later.
  • I guess the problem with having so many characters is that I spend lots of time away from some while I’m paying attention to to others. I missed this guy so I kinda just drew. What are you running from, Sy?
  • I think this is my favorite one even though I drew his legs too long. Paper and pencil is hard.
  • I guess I was on a SE kick this week, huh? I kinda forced myself to draw this since I had time to kill and wouldn’t do anything otherwise, but my heart wasn’t really in it. At least I got more practice in!
