I don’t know about you guys but this is my favorite image of Rei from the new episode.
Oh my GOD
My grandma bought my grandpa new pants and my mom asked him how they felt and he goes “like a cheaply made castle” and we were like what and he goes “no ballroom”
I HOPE YOU DON’T MIND IF I ANSWER THIS PUBLICALLY BECAUSE I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH I RECOMMEND IT TO EVERYONE…
BASICALLY IF YOU HAVENT READ IT, dorohedoro is set in a world where there’s Magic Users and then there’s humans, and they live in the world of Magic Users and Hole, respectively. These are the main characters:
They live in the human place and they’re best friends!! Lizard guy over here is trying to figure out WHY he’s a lizard (He doesn’t remember) and try to become a human again, by grilling magic users about it. It sounds pretty simple exceeept…
The added stipulation is of course, it’s preeeetty gore-y and can be psychologically horrifying at times…
(weak example but yeah) BUT ALSO sometimes it’s really silly, and it never takes itself very seriously??
There’s barely an ounce of angst in the whole series?? it’s just a story about fighting and gore and sometimes creepy shit. Also the girls can kick ASS all day long.
I just love it cause it’s so fun and the characters are so silly and lovable but there’s a real story going on (that’s getting pretty creepy right about now) and if you have a little time i would recommend this to legit ANYONE, GO READ DOROHEDORO
I think about pokemon in non-battle situations a lot. Like pokemon who have been trained/raised to be helpers and assistants than to be battle partners.
Pokemon visiting hospitals to cheer patients up like dogs and cats do. Or ones that help kids learn to read, speak, swim, go through therapy?! Even pokemon who’s abilities help owners with specific disabilities?!
I love thinking of pokemon outside of battle situations.
