I am currently obsessed with DC comics characters. I make frequent typos.
NOW SCROLL DOWN
I know that Big O was heavily inspired by Batman, but I was reading The Long Halloween and
17 notes (via areyoubuzzlightyear & anonymous-deactivated)
So an Anime/Manga (The Wallflower / Perfect Girl Evolution) with four very pretty boys and one awkward girl
And the fandom…. isn’t overrun with yaoi? Loves and respects the main girl? Their favorite pairing is of the one hinted at in the show of the main girl and guy?
WHAT IS THIS MAGIC? I applaud you Wallflower fandom. You have pleasantly surprised me!
Yup, The Wallflower, although the manga seems to be titled
“Perfect Girl Evolution” (which I haven’t read yet)
If you haven’t seen the anime (or read the manga) it’s about a girl (Sunako) obsessed with horror movies, medical mannequins, cooking, and who would rather stay indoors and away from sunlight and people. She believes herself to be ugly because she was told she was when she was a young teen, even though she really isn’t at all (her hobbies may scare people but she’s actually pretty). Her extremely rich aunt hires 4 very pretty popular boys to turn her into a real lady, and if they suceed, they will get to live in the mansion rent free ( spoiler:
she can’t really be changed and they need to accept her for who she is… which they mostly do) / end of spoiler.
It’s mostly a comedy with a tiny bit of drama. The boys, in particular the tallest blonde boy, are obsessed over and harassed by other girls in town. To a ridiculous degree. Almost worse than what happens to celebrities. The tallest blonde one had to leave home and can barely go out in public without being mauled by fangirls. He really hates the attention (I ended up feeling really bad for him, especially how it destroyed his relationship with his family).
Sunako has the opposite reaction. She mostly thinks of them as just dumb boys who happen to be her friends or sometimes too good looking and she’d rather avert her eyes (annoying to her as dazzling sunglight).
The anime hinted at feelings between the two but didn’t follow through much. It seems like the manga has more.
Finally watched Puella Magi Madoka Magica yesterday. The whole thing in a row with only a little break for dinner. Well THAT was a headtrip. I know, I’m far behind you, internet, who watched it years ago. I knew that little creature was evil but didn’t expect the labyrinth scenes… the art sure was… creative.
I don’t really like the type of design they used for the girl’s faces— the kind with tiny dots for noses and giant eyes that look like they are sloping off their faces. But the plot, music, and animation made it worth watching. I liked that dark ending song especially.
I had a weird feeling that during the last couple of episodes that the mom knew what was up.
If they wanted to discourage people from wanting to be magical girls, they sure did a good job.
