Part: 1/2

Yoo Jae-myung, animation director of The Legend of Korra, discusses Nickelodeons initial hesitancy to accept Mike and Bryans proposal of the show… and Korra.

“The sequel focuses on the incarnation of the new Avatar, Korra, as she tries to save a city called the Republic City.”

“So, Korra is a young girl , not a boy. Heroes and protagonists are usually men.”

“That actually became a problem.

Nickelodeon was reluctant to produce this animated series at first because the protagonist was a girl.

I guess you could say that Americans are more conservative than Koreans.

The production was suspended just because the protagonist was a girl.

To compare this situation to a movie production, it’s as if the lead actor has already been cast, but the production agency decides to stop the filming because they don’t approve of the actor.”

You know what?

Flip it.

I’m blaming this. This is why we can’t have nice things. This is why we don’t get the episodes. This is why we don’t get commercials or proper advertising or merchandise. This is still prevalent, they’re still bitter about this, and their utter incompetence and ineptitude when it comes to marketing and promotion could not have POSSIBLY been the genuine reasons for this show’s troubles in the ratings, so it must have been because she’s a girl, so you see “we were right”. That’s all.

This viewpoint will continue until I have a better explanation from the studios. I don’t care if the episodes are on their website when I post this message and jump over to the site, my stance will remain the same. I want an explanation. If you’re not going to give me the product I want to invest in, I want an explanation as to why I can’t have it.

GLTAS was doing fantastic and got incredible reviews, but it was outside the demographic they wanted, so they didn’t renew it. Correct me if I’m wrong.

I don’t understand anymore. Why can’t we just have Korra toys, I’ll buy a toy to keep the show going. god damn it

I think it’s safe to say the game industry is done with motion controls.

Motion controls in WindWaker HD.

Why did you do this to me, Nintendo?

Why. Did you do this to me.

Coach steven opinions with a sprinkle of spoilers

bladder-face-chan:

Coach Steven isn’t about Pearl being better then amethyst and garnet. It isn’t even about pearl being better than sugilite. It’s about Pearl coming to terms with the fact that she can’t achieve that kind of strength and finding in herself, through Steven, that her strength is just as strong as any other strength because they’re all different. Pearl isn’t strong in the real way because sugulite is strong in the wrong way, pearl is strong in the real way because she’s strong in Pearl’s way.

Additionally Sugulite’s power being too much, especially towards the end, in my opinion comes down to the martial arts philosophy that power is wasted if you can’t control and direct it properly. It specifically becomes a problem when she has to walk home. She’s bored, and she’s been brooding the entire time, so without a specific goal to put her power towards, she’s out of control and starts lashing out at anything.

People complaining about Garnet saying Pearl was right clearly didn’t pay enough attention to the fact that sugulite got so out of control that she wore out BOTH Garnet and Amethyst’s body to the point where they were in a lot of pain. Sugulite didn’t just attack Pearl and trash stuff, she was reckless and selfish to the point of disregarding the wellbeing of the two people who brought her into existence.

Though additionally, people saying sugulite has none of amethyst’s or garnets positive traits are not paying attention either. If that was the case why did she bend down to talk to Steven? Why did she ask him if he wanted to see something cool? Why did she let him choose where she was going to start wrecking things? Those are all signs of acting like a big sister to him. She aside from making fun of him a little with ‘you like that little man?’ (which honestly reminds me a little of amethyst’s joking name calling and garnet giving him titles such as ‘wet one’ and playing along with and calling him ‘serious steven’) she spoke to him fondly.

But breasts ARE sexual organs? They release oxytocin when stimulated, that makes them sexual.

ive had to deal w this argument before ok listen here

boobs do the oxytocin thing when theyre stimulated yes, nipples are an erogenous zone. Men’s nipples do this too. Now read over those two sentences and let the double standard dawn on you okay? Think about it if both kinds of nips release oxytocin when you do the touch touch on them, why is only one kind of nip considered a sexual nip? sexism that’s why

it’s ridiculous and technically makes a dude’s nipples more inappropriate than a lady’s nipples because boy nipples serve virtually no other purpose than to be stimulated by temperature change or by sexual activity, while girl nipples serve the added purpose of oh you know, feeding babies no big deal

but nah man nah both can be aroused so both nips are sexual or no nips are so make up your mind

you know where else is an erogenous zone?? ears. Are you wearing an ear bra/?? Why the fuck arent you wearing your fucking ear bra you trash put on yoourfucking ear bra youre not allowed to show your fucking ears thats so inappropriate and its makinng me horny its distracting me from my school work youre not following the dresscode wear your fucking ear bra yo ufucking

As a queer person of color, I have been told all my life that I will never play the romantic lead, and that’s fucked up. When they say that, what they’re actually telling you is that your love story doesn’t exist.

 meajoraswrath replied to your post:I wondered that too? But my roommate who lived in Japan for a while (and is fluent in the language) was even like “Wow…this is really gay” and pointed out that some phrases used were only normally used between lovers, for example so Idk

Dang, that’s fascinating. Thanks for sharing! I’ll probably be keeping an ear to the ground for any LGBT-centric discussions that arise about the film once it comes out, I’ll be interested to see what everyone has to say about it.

incredible

This is the shittiest post I’ve seen this month

This is so rude? I’m sorry you feel this way but if you spent less time making bitter posts like this and more time doing the stuff you liked to draw maybe you wouldn’t be so mad about it??

what an infant. stop whining about other peoples’ art and watch frozen again.

It just tells you straight up that the misogynistic ass white supremacists are coming out even more now. They are so mad that people are being represented. SO MAD. They can’t STAND it. So they make passive aggressive ass posts like this one over the fact that brown people, mogii people, and people who are fat are actually getting some love and are seeing themselves more and more in media.
SO MAD. And so they take it out by whinging about ‘being pc’ and shit when really, they are just outing themselves as the very pieces of shit they claim not to be.

Lmao PlebComics is mad because no one likes their shit?

Because we all know that thick/brown/punky women characters “originated” in Tumblr and not any other places, right?



And of course, if every single drawn character on Tumblr fit that bill, how would it weigh against decades of cartoons, comics, etc. that all have Barbie doll white girls and buff-ass teeth gritting white dudes?  I bet there’s even more images of ANIMAL people than WOC, thick women and/or punk girls.
But shh, shh, poor white fee fees sad the whole world doesn’t show 99% whiteness in every view.  Their poor eyes tainted by looking upon a drawing of a character who didn’t fit their beauty standards, never again will they be clean, forever!
