This is just a random blog of things that I find interesting, as well as a few creative endeavors here and there.
A Series of Unfortunate Events. Ace Attorney. Code Geass. Disney. Durarara!!. Final Fantasy. Good Omens. Gundam Wing. Harry Potter. His Dark Materials. Homestuck. House of Leaves. Katekyo Hitman Reborn!. Kingdom Hearts. Loveless. Neon Genesis Evangelion. No.6. Percy Jackson. Sailor Moon. The Wizard of Oz. Yugioh!.
So I’m just about wrapping up the most chaotic fucking week ever, and during said week, there were several points where I just said to myself, “Self, if you ever make it through this stupid week, you need to set aside some time to sit back and do something that makes you happy.”
“That’s all well and good, but what does make me happy?” I replied (to myself). Then I actually thought about it for two seconds and was all like, “OH YEAH, RAMBLING ABOUT KHR CHARACTERS.”
So yeah, that’s the story of how I am finally going to try out this meme and spend the next month TALKING ABOUT GOKUDERA, oh my gosh I am so excited.
Day 1 - Introduce the character.
I love KHR essays, especially when they are about Gokudera.
The G Archery episode is one of the best ever.
Well, pretty much all the episodes where Gokudera’s devotion to Tsuna is highlighted are in my favorite episodes, but this one is honestly great. Gokudera plans to do something dangerous, and Tsuna FORBIDS him from doing it. Then Gokudera DEFIES the order, and his explanation of why he wants to do this - and what kind of right hand he wants to be - is so touching. It echoes the Storm Ring battle in that Gokudera doesn’t want to be reckless with himself, because he realizes that’s not what Tsuna wants. They both want to be able to survive and laugh together afterwards, and it’s not just walking away this time.
I still maintain that if not for needing to be bailed out for a Varia entrance directly afterwards, Gokudera would have won that battle against Zakuro. I know Gokudera gets a lot of grief for his win/loss record, but in every battle of his, we learn something new about how he has grown, and how his relationship with Tsuna has grown, and the strength that comes from his dedication. This is one of the reasons I love this show.
