Probably the greatest, comprehensive analysis on one of the most important film makers in animation gone too soon, and my direct influence in storyboard/visual storytelling in animation, the late great Kon Satoshi.
Rest in Power, Kon-san!
If you haven’t heard about this yet, last night the BBC aired a powerful documentary called Blurred Lines that explored casual misogyny online and rape culture.
I urge EVERYONE to watch it and spread it like fire because it gives real insight into the topic and has inspired both men and women to go to Twitter and had #blurredlines trending for 12 hours on Twitter after it aired.
You can watch it on BBC iPlayer here (x)
(I genuinely don’t know if those outside the UK can view, so please let me know!)
It includes video footage from the Steubenville cases, it takes a look at the treatment of women in GTA, lads mags and rape jokes, the unapologetic nature of those who perpetrate rape culture etc.
One of the more interesting points of the documentary are the men who oppose rape culture and those that don’t and the societal differences between them.
After you view it please share your views, both on Tumblr and any other social media platforms you have. It’d be great if this abuse against women documentary were the first searches people came across when they search for Blurred lines.
You can watch it on BBC iPlayer here (x)
For those outside the UK: there’s a nice browser extension called Hola with which you can watch this.
And here’s a link to the whole program on YouTube. [x]

So someone swapped in the Attack on Titan theme on the opening for Sailor Moon Crystal and this was the result.
do most anime openings got like a pacing system going on? cuz when I was in the 10th grade I tried swapping the 2nd Naruto opening with the OP music from at least 6 different animes and every single one of them worked flawlessly
they actually do, they’re very formulaic.
I feel like it’s time to bring this back.

I love how every time he goes, “Maybe I won’t do a polka medley on this album…” his fans freak the fuck out. “NO! YOU HAVE TO!”

Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”
I would love to know what this means.
I think that might be code for “punched him in the balls with devastating accuracy”.
