2020.09.19 19:44 OneSilverRaven Raven Reviews: IxSHE TELL Part 2, Love and War are NEVER Fair.

ALMOST A CHARACTER
When looking back on the first part of this review after I had posted it I felt like perhaps I had given the protagonist (Ninomiya Hajime) a poor representation. P-kun, or Protagonist-kun if you prefer, is a term I use to describe a VNs POV character when they are... less then developed. This isn't necessarily a condemnation of a novel (Yukizakura is a pretty good novel with this type of protagonist) but I'd be lying if I said I didn't use the term derogatorily. I am not blind to the fact that the appeal of "blank slate" protagonists in this genre specifically is higher then most, but I think the evidence is overwhelming that more beloved novels have more developed protagonists. Shirogane Takeru, Toomi Yuna, Emiya Shirou and others might not be what most people think of when recalling their stories but their is no doubt in my mind replacing them with a vehicle for easier self insertion would have been a mistake, as each is crucial to the feel of the narrative. Depending upon your opinion of DDLC as a parody of traditional novels you might even reference its call outs of the POV character as recognition that the vast majority of VN protagonists are not only underdeveloped but participate in actions that from an outside perspective they have no motivation to do. So when I reference IxSHE Tell and its protagonist I feel slightly bad about including him on the same list as Takao Ibuki rather then giants like Okabe Rintarou because he has SOME personality at least. So i'll make a compromise, just this once. When I can justify it I'll refer to the protagonist by name, and when he slips into self insert territory I'll call him out for it with P-kun, so if you see me switching back and forth in this review that's why. Part 2 is going to cover my thoughts on the common route and its assets so lets dive right in and talk about the title screen.
I DON'T THINK THAT CHAIR ACTUALLY APPEARS ONCE IN THE NOVEL
IxSHE Tell starts almost immediately upon launch with a loud trumpet filled intro track over a picture of five girls tightly clustered in front of a posh throne. A few weeks ago when I published my first review of HuniePop I commented at length about my personal pet peeve for title cards and this one is... not very good. For starters the characters are much closer together then on the promotional art picture of the exact same scene (the characters even have the same poses) and that tightness clutters the left side of the menu uncomfortably. The picture on VNDB is MUCH better and not only lets each character breath more but puts emphasis on the empty seat which was presumably left open for the reader. The draped curtains in the background and the bright gold of the title clash with the music as the upbeat tempo and almost party like tone conflict with what looks to be a much calmer and upper class if unusual arrangement formed by the heroines. As a group shot, this title card fails to show anything but the most superficial traits of its subjects. I guess you could gather Kozuka is younger then the others from her expression and clothing but her personality doesn't really fit the tone she's putting off with her body language and saying you could guess Yamabuki is a tsudere or Yuuki is confident from their posture is a stretch at bast. Muv-Luv's title card isn't PERFECT but it's a much better example of how things can be done right in a group shot where every character has something unique to convey their personality to the reader. Pretend you've never seen either of these novels before and compare just these two images on VNDB, the list of things you can guess about one game's characters is easily triple the length of the other. So not a great omen for whats going to come but who knows maybe the title card at 100% completion will be better...
BEING POPULAR AND FAMOUS
In the past year of 201X (Seriously? Mega Man style date? What is this a secret Sci-Fi novel? If you're so worried about accurately depicting a level of technology just leave the year unspecified nobody cares! All you're doing with this is drawing attention to it.) the novel opens with a strange bit of narration in which the student newspaper (presumably) talks about the virtues of P-kun... okay. And tells the reader about him by calling him the hero student council president. So we know this novel isn't compensating for anything out of the gate at least I mean we're JUST the legendary president of the student council it's not like we're also drowning in women or anything...
Anyway cut to an introduction to our first Heroine Yamabuki Yoshino presented with a cute title card claiming she "Can't fully hide her true feelings" so look forward to embarrassing the soul out of her all game. She's okay I guess, her introduction is twenty minutes of nagging P-kun in her capacity as vice president while everyone tells P-kun how great he is and stuff. Then she falls over for a pantsu CG and the whole thing is so forced and unbelievable it comes off as a joke which is REALLY not want I wanted my FIRST interaction with this girl to be like but hey maybe you like seeing strong women humiliated to the tune of epic suspenseful music more suited to a poorly done Lord of the Rings video game then a VN, no judgment.
The rest of the student council, all one of them, is introduced (Hakuwa Shoukichi) as well as presumably the president (Kozuka Yui) and vice president (Ninomiya Aoba) of the neighboring sister school who's name is unimportant enough I'm not going to bother looking it up but it directly feeds its students into P-kun's academy so thats nice. Aoba is P-kun's sister and an adorable brat, she and Shoukichi spend the entire novel as one note characters i'll discuss in detail later but both are pretty enjoyable to have around. For story purposes all you need to know is Shoukichi has a crush on the school idle and does all the student council grunt work while Aoba is three steps down from spoiled rotten and oscillates between totally obnoxious and sickeningly sweet and clingy. Oh and she's friends with Yui I guess.
Speaking of which Yui gets her own title card "Both childlike and mature" (THAT'S not code for anything) and has the best romance introduction in the game. Hajime pulls her aside and tells her that as a fellow student body president he wants to ask her for her advice. He's having doubts what he's doing is the right thing. Today's student council meeting was all about the abolition of the centuries old ban on romantic relationship he had pretty much single handedly championed and gotten passed and how it was going to affect the school. Yoshino, again, his vice president, had originally run against him as a supporter of the ban and still speaks out against it despite working with him diligently as he was the people's choice. Hajime expresses his fears for the future and openly questions if this new freedom will come at the cost of some people's comfort who will now be subject to unwanted advances. Yui's response is so well crafted I can't do it justice in this summery but she asks point blank if she is the only one who knows Hajime feels this way. When he reply's affirmatively she takes responsibility for all his fears, and dismisses them. As the only person who COULD blame him, by choosing not to she makes it so their is now no one who does. Again the scene is MUCH better then this but I still have over half the cast to introduce so take my word for it, GREAT first impression from Yui.
Next comes Yuuki Ayaka, the school idol and two year winner of some beauty pageant. Apparently she's voiced by Oohashi Ayuru who is an idol herself which is a neat touch but her introduction here is UNBEARABLE... Her Heroine quirk is "Fary-Tale ideas of romance" which translates to referring to herself as "Perfect and Kawaii" every third paragraph and rejecting the advances of over a dozen guys, including poor Shoukichi, and some unnamed student directly in front of P-kun and Yui on their walk home. Realizing P-kun is there, she flat out presses her butt on his groin while saying to his face he, as the schools most popular boy, is the only man she could accept the confession of. Which prompts P-kun to freak out internally as he apparently has a crush on her and is a member of her "fan club" whatever that means. Apparently Ayaka and Yui know each other and Ayaka is teasingly warm to Yui's teasingly cold, bet that's going to come up later. Anyway P-kun gets Ayaka to blush after she DECIMATES poor off screen confession bro and the scene ends.
We pick up with P-kun walking home with his childhood friend Hanamori Shiori who I THINK is the front runner for best hair but we'll have to see. Her quirk is "Madly in love, single-minded devotion," and she will oscillate between too shy to function and creepily obsessed with P-kun for the rest of the novel until the romance branches. Her scene here is completely forgettable and uninteresting because the only thing that matters is that you know she's P-kun's childhood friend.
At the dorms Hajime and Shiori apparently live at together with Yoshino (Because THAT'S fair to the other heroines.) a new student is transferring in after the semester already started in true anime style and she immediately latches onto Hajime during their introduction. This is Koshimizu Kasumi, the apparent LOSER of best hair by popular vote which is a darn shame because the indigo tints on her tips are pretty cute, but that's a topic for later. Apparently she knew Hajime, Aoba and Shiori from their childhood where she was really sickly and Hajime would come visit her and bring her the schoolwork she missed. This left such a huge impression on the girl she developed her quirk "Pure, unabashed adoration" of Hajime and now that she's all better and able to go to public school again ten years after they met she's here to reunite with her white knight. Honestly it's a pretty touching story that feels a little rushed but OH BOY wait till we get the resolution to this one down the line it is going to get SO much more painful to read.
But enough of that, it's time to meet the best character in the game Hanamori Yasumasa! Yasumasa is Shiori's little brother, which makes him YOUR little brother by right of childhood friendship, and he's adorable. Your introduction to him is at the last meeting of the club you preside over together hilariously called The Horny Brigadier Brotherhood with the sole goals of creating and maintaining a free, secure network to browse porn at the school and abolish the relationship ban. Today's meeting disbands the group as Hajime steps down from his position as general (Which is weird right I mean can you even be the president of two groups simultaneously in Japanese schools I didn't know that was a thing but regardless) and Yasumasa is the vice president. When one of the members gets too rowdy Yasu threatens to suck him off and I'm going to have to stop this whole review for a second because that one line is my favorite in the whole novel.
Full context, I am a bisexual man. I lean about 60/40 in favor of women and didn't discover this part of my sexuality until I was in college, so the majority of my taste is centered around more traditional media rather then BL or Yaoi, but I do dabble in that as well. Yasu as a bisexual character is something I almost never get to see because in the words of my real life little brother "Japan only has two sexualities it recognizes, straight and fetish." Even setting that aside though for all the LGBTQ+ representation in American and Japanese media the B part of that is actually really hard to find good examples of in media ESPECIALLY male versions. They exist, but in recent years especially what little their is often gets drowned beneath a sea of purely homosexual characters and stories so its harder and harder to find. I can't tell you how excited I was to have this opportunity presented to me to see a good bisexual character because this game has a real chance to positively portray him and might even give the barest note of something between him and Hajime. I wasn't expecting a full romance route or anything, but their has to be a failure route in this game, and THAT is the perfect place to put something. It doesn't have to be flashy, maybe just a confession scene where Hajime, who rejected every one of these five girls, is approached by Yasu who questions him about why he's still single. It could end with a kind rejection, CG optional, or maybe even a kiss after the fade to black if they want to spoil me but this is a golden egg I'm BEGGING you Japan don't waste this...
After the meeting Hajime returns to his room and the narrative shifts to view the three love interests he boards with in the bath. Now I'm by no means a pearl clutching reactionary, but their is literally no reason for this scene to take place in the bath outside of Echii. If you didn't install the H-patch the scene is bland and has absolutely no character sprites. If you did the camera hugs the largest tits in the room as the girls talk. This conversation could easily have been anywhere else in the building but whatever the first CG in this game was an up-skirt pantsu shot so I guess this isn't as egregious as THAT. This does give me a good opportunity though to mention I WILL be including the H-patch content in this review but I'll be sectioning it off as much as possible to it's own subsection. When I eventually get to the romance routes I'll be glazing over everything Echii but this particular scene was kind of unavoidable to mention because Kasumi announces that she is going to confess to Hajime in front of the other two girls... and then immediately gets out of the tub and does it! I don't know why I find that so surprising but we as readers met this character literally twenty minutes ago in and out of game so this is REALLY forward but I guess points for confidence.
Kasumi's confession takes place in P-kun's room and is... a mixed bag. On the one hand her story, that she was a sickly girl P-kun would visited frequently ten years ago to bring homework and spend time with before she moved away for her health thus causing her to motivate herself to get better so she can one day reunite with her white knight is touching and romantic but also feels kind of rushed for a reason I can't quite explain. Maybe its the way she tells the story but I get the sense it would have been more impactful if it had a few more sentences of build up somewhere but for what it is it's serviceable. Hajime, understandably, politely tells Kasumi the two of them just met kind of and while he's flattered she feels so strongly about him he can't return her feelings as of yet because he knows so little about her. So not fully rejecting her but not saying yes either, just a request to get to know her first. Then she trips on him and the camera zooms on her boobs. So that ruins the mood as Yoshino comes in to tell P-kun he's terrible.
A DAY OF CONFESSIONS
The second half of the prologue begins with Kasumi transferring into P-kun's class, because of course she is. the next five minutes are background nobodies saying she's pretty. After a time skip to lunch these murmurs of Kasumi's apparent good looks reach all the way to the third year classes apparently because Ayaka bursts into the class to see her new competition appalled that Kasumi has been here less then 14 hours and has already confessed to her "crush." After establishing that Ayaka and Kasumi are now maybe possibly rivals not only for P-kun's affections but the beauty contest crown as well Yui, who apparently ran all the way from the sister school, bursts into the room, catches her breath, and asks Ayaka point blank if she is also here to confess to P-kun. If all of this is sounding rushed don't worry it is.
Yui makes the kind gesture of apologizing in advance to Kasumi, who without question got to P-kun first, but nonetheless confesses her love in front of the whole class which WAY too embarrassing even for me and I can't help but think this poor girl is going to be RELENTLESSLY teased for this but whatever its cute she's so brave. Hajime gives her the same response he gave Kasumi, stating he wants to consider both of them before deciding, which is pretty cool of him not ganna lie. Kasumi takes it really well considering she's standing right there as it all happens and says she likes the idea the boy she loves is so popular so as many girls can confess to him as possible without bothering her. Everyone acts real mature about the whole situation and honestly the atmosphere of the whole thing is pretty sweet.
Then Ayaka interrupts the mood tripping over herself to ask P-kun out too.
Yeah, this is the worst confession in the game and her reasoning that "We should date because we're popular" is ridiculous. I don't have any jokes about this I just find it really poorly executed, 0 points.
After that P-kun is chased out of the classroom and down the hall by a ravenous group of girls in a brief break for levity before the novel establishes P-kun is apparently remembering arm day because he hoists himself into the student council room through the window, and will do so on a regular bases throughout the rest of the novel. Inside he's greeted by Shiori, Yoshino, Yui, and Kasumi as well as the entire student council important enough to have a sprite. Yoshino, unable to take the second hand embarrassment of the girls who already confessed to P-kun cooks up a ridiculous plan. She confesses her "love" for him, saying she wants to have the most debauched relationship possible to get the romance ban reinstated and end all this chaos. The only important part of this is that no one thinks she doesn't actually like him and just felt jealous so she did something rash. Aoba asks if her brother is going to die tomorrow to keep karmic balance and at this point I wouldn't be surprised if he did.
Anyway somehow this group chooses to be productive after all that and discussion begins on a PR campaign that the photography club, of which Shiori is a part, will be helping with. Hajime is nominated to be one of the models for a series of posters showing a model couple for students to look up to and the remaining girls fight over who will be his partner in the pictures. Everyone has their own reasons for why they should be picked but just when the reader may think they'll be given the first choice of the game Hajime (After a day of deliberation, a visit to the cafe Ayaka's parents own in which she works so SHE can be in on this, a much better and cuter scene then her introduction with Shiori at the dorm, and an admittedly pretty good fake out when Hajime gives a speech to the student body about the right to love in which we get a LOT of time with Yoshino.) just chooses Kasumi and the whole thing resolves... and then Shiori confesses her feelings in front of the other girls in the weirdest, most unsettling way possible.
In a CG where she twists her head to look over her shoulder as it tilts back, Shiori, backed by the most ominous track possible, expresses she has loved P-kun since childhood blah blah that parts not interesting she looks like a total Yandere. Like no joke if this was the only picture you had to go on, which at this point it is, you'd expect this game to devolve into Love Letter at some point down the line it is TERRIFYING! Gotta admit though her stance of "If all it takes to get a yes from you is to get to know each other then I should easily win because I've known you for years." is a pretty good argument. Seriously though I really can't stress this enough she isn't just setting off a red flag it's BLOOD red.
OKAY MAYBE THIS IS A LITTLE TOO POPULAR.
The first of five subsections in the common route opens with P-kun being chased by a hoard of women and a 90's style record scratch sonic movie opening "Yeah, thats me, if you wanna know how I got here we have to go back to-" in medias res. Now because of the way the heart system works my summery from this point on is going to SOUND really surface level and bare but for every scene I gloss over with a sentence it is entirely possible something takes place that may not be important to the STORY but was purely designed to endear the reader to the heroine featured in it. I'll point out any moments I feel are noteworthy but just because not much PLOT happens doesn't mean NOTHING happens alright?
P-kun has a flashback to this morning when Yoshino walked him to school and the two of them were mobbed by a hoard of girls who either want to ask him out or ask him about the girls who asked him out. He runs and abandons Yoshino to the wolves. Good boy Yasu meets up with Hajime for the cross view section which I will cover quickly. Yui's scene is just talking with Moka and getting pumped to go spend time with P-kun. Yoshino deals with the aftermath of being abandoned. Kasumi meets a cat girl and acts cute. Ayaka is swarmed by fans who agree to help her track down Hajime and Shiori has a panic attack. You see what I mean about these summaries? Each of those scenes was probably a ten minute read where not much happens but you're able to spend time with the heroines. I'd love to go line by line and talk about how charming some of these moments are but this review is already a monster so I'm just going to have to move on.
Yasu is being blackmailed into helping the mob of girls but he nobly sacrifices himself for p-kun to escape, fainting to distract them. Hajime ends up at his favorite spot on campus, the Clock Tower, where Ayaka visits him and they have a chat. Apparently Ayaka's fan club is working like a not so secret service to give her an advantage. Which I kind of want to say is cheating but will let slide because the other girls get outside help from their friends later in the novel. Anyway the mob finds them and Hajime flees again, this time to the auditorium where Kasumi gives him a lunch since he probably hadn't had a chance to eat yet and if you don't give her a heart for that you're a monster this is a legitimately sweet gesture. Hajime freaks out that she was keeping the milk she got him between her breasts, must be a Japanese thing because I don't know a single teenage boy who would care. Anyway you can guess what happens, they're found, he flees, this time he's pulled into an unused room by Shiori who sits on his lap, which is somehow NOT a CG but whatever I'm not salty. The title screen has her in a close position to what I imagined anyway. Anyway more girls and more fleeing. (How long has this been going on don't you kids have class to get to?) Now Hajime climbs trough the student council room window again and finds Yui who stuffs him under her desk to prevent him from being spotted and we get ANOTHER pantsu shot which is WAY over quota now and its not even tasteful. Like this is full on up the skirt vag view, for which Hajime is rightfully punished by... being crushed between Yui's thighs... are we sure this is before the Echii patch add ons?
The school day comes to an end when literally every heroine, Aoba, and Moka all end up at Ayaka's cafe (she had invited Hajime their in the earlier scene) and they talk for a bit about who Hajime is going to take on a date. For the first extra scene the reader gets to make that choice. Kasumi takes him to the mall where she clings to his arm, not a great scene but playful I guess. Yoshino runs into her political supporters against relationships and forces Hajime to pretend they are just out together as friends. Ayaka has a truly forgettable scene of walking with Hajime. But the two stand outs are definitely Shiori and Yui. Shiori has a scene I'm guessing is much more sexual in Japan where you measure her cup size, I don't know maybe that's your thing I just can't get over the *squish* sound effect it's like a bad anime skit. Yui calls you Onii-chan for the ONLY time in the novel and asks you to pet her head which is ADORABLE and it is a CRIME this is the only time this happens.
Next day, new batch of hearts.
Hajime runs out of ink for his pen... Theirs a joke here somewhere but I can't quite find it... anyway Yoshino offers him some of hers... god I really feel like I'm missing an innuendo here. Hajime turns her down and runs off to the campus store where he runs into cat girl and Ayaka. Apparently the store needs to sell a whole bunch of noodles nobody wants and cat girl is depressed about it. Ayaka offers to do a handshake event, which I guess is a Japanese thing where when you buy a certain amount of a product you get to touch a celebrity, and volunteers Hajime to be there too, so that's the plot of this subsection. All the girls find out about it and have their own reactions. The cross view section lays out their plans. Shiori skips class to be first in line. Ayaka uses her fame to advertise. Kasumi volunteers to work the store in exchange for four times the necessary amount of noodles to qualify for a handshake. Yoshino beats herself up over wanting to go to the event and not having a good excuse (She's really starting to lean into that aggressively shy personality about romance.) And Yui has a HEARTBREAKING scene where she thinks about how even the short distance between the two sister schools is a roadblock to her romantic prospects because unlike all the other girls she has to run every day to even SEE Hajime and they just have to go to class. She finds out about the handshake event but by then she knows she'll be way back in the line. Oh and Aoba has a scene where she tries to price gouge people and fails miserably, so that exists.
Anyway the actual event takes place and all the Heroines get a chance to interact with Hajime, the scene comes off as a bit comedic with Yui wearing a disguise so the artist can make use of the alternate lab coat outfit she has for no good reason. Yoshino's indecisiveness makes it so she gets in line too late to buy any noodles but Kasumi gives her half of the ones set aside for her day of work. Ayaka cracks some pretty good jokes, and the whole thing ends with a photo shoot for the whole group where Ayaka surprise kisses Hajime on the cheek. And Shiori is there too. Then you get the least interesting extra scenes in the game. I mean they aren't BAD they're just comparatively the worst of the bunch. Ayaka tells you she was embarrassed to kiss you but swears she wants to make your heart flutter. Yoshino acts embarrassed on the walk back from school and runs off. Hajime just kind of chats with Shiori, walks Yui home, and gives Kasumi her "handshake" after she teases you. Nothing terrible just nothing super interesting either.
FAVORITISM
The next scene is a fireworks festival and the best part of the whole game. I mean it if you could somehow only play one part of this novel THIS is the part you should do it is cute, fun, has great jokes, honestly its better then any of the romance routes so if this review has gotten you interested in the game I honestly recommend a blind look at it you'll have a blast.
The girls get into an argument about who is going to be Hajime's date to the festival and decide to play a game called King to determine the winner and while I would have LIKED to have this scene take multiple paths it always plays out the same way but the jokes here are top notch as the girls all try to one up each other. Theirs a CG of playing the Pocky game with Yoshino and it's adorable, honestly Yoshino kind of steals the show during the game till she passes out peso pon. Eventually the girls all drop out one by one until Kasumi wins and gets the right to your fireworks date. But tragedy! That night she calls Hajime saying she lost a special pendent and just can't leave the house without it. So he tells her to stay put since it's getting dark and goes to the school to look for it.
The cross view this time around has the first of two tied for worst scenes in the game and some really cute moments. Kasumi ruminates on how cool you are for understanding she can't go on the date with you and decides to go to the school to look there even though you told her not to, but she's the outlier because literally all the rest of the heroines plan a big party at Hajime's dorm on Aoba's suggestion. In Yui's scene we see her upset that she lost the game with the other girls and Aoba suggests the party to cheer her up, why the developer decided this scene needed to be done from both Yui's AND Aoba's perspective when Yui would have been fine on her own I don't know but I HATE when visual novels repeat themselves like that it's maddening. The difference is literally six lines of dialogue but to find it I have to sift through all this stuff I JUST read, it's a waist of time. If you want me to have both perspectives, wright the scene in two parts and put one after the other, like Aoba recommends the party and then Yui thinks about what a great friend she is shortly after ANYTHING ELSE but this. Shiori, Ayaka, and Yoshino all get invited and agree to go. Their's also a really nice scene of some random no name guys talking about Hajime and how jealous they are of him but it's not mean spirited or anything they act really casual about it, honestly this might be my personal favorite of the cross fades its just got a really nice atmosphere to it.
Hajime arrives at the school and tells off my boy Yasu for bringing a camera to school to catch couples getting frisky on campus during the fireworks which totally sounds like its going to happen given the recently lifted ban on romance making people lose themselves in the moment but Hajime is a total cock block and tells him to go home. After a long time searching Hajime bumps into Kasumi and just when they're about to lose hope and go home the fireworks start and a glint of light leads Kasumi right to her pendent on the ground. Overjoyed, but sad they missed their chance at a date, they head back to the dorm to find the party in full swing and have a great time. the extra scenes are all post festivities and range from decent to too cute to exist. Yui and Ayaka get walked home, nothing super interesting but sweet. Shiori helps clean things up and you do the dishes together like a married couple. But Kasumi and Yoshino definitely win this round. Yoshino, like a boo from Mario, inches closer to Hajime when he looks away but losses her nerve when he looks at her. Intentionally turning to see what she's trying to do but without looking directly at her he sees her creep up and lock pinkies with him with a triumphant "Yay! I did it!" under her breath. He responds by holding her hand and the two of them clean the outside party area together. Kasumi looks up at the starts and talks to herself about how fortunet she is to have met Hajime and when he approaches her she asks if, just for a moment, he'll let her think of him as her hero as she cries on his chest in relief she still has her pendent. It's not a long scene, but it is incredibly touching.
the next subsection is a party at the dorm, no not the party we just had a different one, this time a sleepover. Theirs a scene with Hajime's teacher who I have purposely avoided speaking about until this point. Rest assured she has been here the entire time I just don't think she's very important. This is the exception however as Hajime runs off to save her from drunk driving and we get the cross view early. Ayaka stresses over what to wear with Moka, a scene we also get from Moka's perspective, same problem as last time don't worry I won't repeat myself. Yui rolls around in Hajime's bed, which I don't THINK is an innuendo in this case but who knows? Kasumi tries to bribe Aoba into giving up information on her brother and gets conned. Yoshino agonizes some more about being in love and Shiori hits her brother while thinking about getting treated like a 50's wife. Hajime brings the teacher back to the party and she kisses his cheek before being murdered off screen by five jealous women.
After ANOTHER scene in the bath involving talk about all kinds of girl stuff it would be inappropriate for me to reveal here due to its private nature Hajime goes to take a bath of his own and all the girls show up in their swimsuits because OF COURSE we need a swimsuit scene this is a VISUAL NOVEL come on! Their is a lot of unnecessary boobs and then extra scene time. Ayaka is outside and reiterates to Hajime her desire to make his heart flutter. Yui sits on the couch with him and lets him pet her. Yoshino also gets head pats. Shiori comes to visit and nearly kisses p-kun and Kasumi burns her sensitive tongue after an indirect kiss. It's all really cute, good note to end the extra scenes on.
The last section of the common route is the Haloween party and this is the point the narrative has been building toward. Tonight, Hajime chooses one of the girls to ask to the dance and finally gets a girlfriend and it is the least interesting part of the whole novel. It's not TOTALLY worthless, Yui and Kasumi get to be pretty cute but 90% of this section is just the heroines agonizing over who he's going to choose. Theirs a subplot about Yui being too busy to go to the party but its resolved quickly and the whole cast ends up together for a little free time and competition that Kasumi and Yui totally win. Something to note in the cross views is my good boy Yasu reveals he's into traps and shows the entire student council, all one of him, a picture on his phone of one. The scene ends with the first and only choice of the game. Who won your heart?
THE LONG ROAD TO ROMANCE
In the previous part I alluded to the fact I would be discussing the entire rest of the game in part 2 but as you could guess from the fact their is a paragraph left in this post I'm going to have to renege on that. I have no intention of stopping here but I'm going to need to make this a three parter at least, I just bit off more then I can chew. Next week, I'll focus on what happens with each heroine when she gets the chance to interact with P-kun by herself. If you're liking this review so far be sure to let me know as I'm putting a LOT more work into this one and feedback is the only way I can know if it's paying off. If you've read the novel let me know what you think of my summery, naturally I had to leave a lot out but I'm curious to see if you would have included something I overlooked or vise versa. Regardless, I hope you were entertained, stay well!

2020.09.19 13:38 DoekaanET What your smash main says about you:

Mario: You easily suffer from choice paralysis and always make the most boring and default choice. Your favorite ice cream is vanilla, your favorite color is blue, your favorite animal is dog, and your favorite movie is The Godfather. If you were in Nazi Germany, you would 100% use the “just following orders” defense. You will go to Hell when you die. Inkling: Why don’t you have a seat? What were you planning when you came here tonight? King Dedede: You masturbate to Deviantart ironically. Meta Knight: You masturbate to Deviantart unironically. Peach: You’re the girlfriend of the guy who bought this game. You thought Link’s name was Zelda and Samus’ name was Metroid. After 15 minutes, you’re gonna want to go back to playing Mario Kart. Daisy: The same as Peach, except you’re a lesbian. Bayonetta: You have said “Rawr XD” at some point in your life, and use Facebook to post memes about depression. It’s getting impossible to tell where your stretch marks end and your self-harm scars begin. You are bisexual. Wolf: You are either currently 14 years old, or you were 14 years old when Brawl came out, and haven’t matured at all beyond that. You watch way too much anime, you’ll never improve as an artist, and your OTP sucks Corrin: You unironically own multiple anime figurines, a body pillow of your waifu, and a katana. You’re either a furry or have a shitty OC that’s half dragon, half demon, and half vampire. You either have autism or are just an oblivious asshole with no social skills, it’s hard to tell. Squirtle: You bought the Switch and this game on launch day. You threw a tantrum when Fox stopped showing Saturday morning cartoons. Your mom wishes you’d move out of the house. Ivysaur: You’ve got weird arm and back acne. You like to pretend you main all three of the Pokemon, but everyone can see right through you. You love cute animals, but if you ever tried to take care of one by yourself, it’d die in a week. Charizard: You are a basic ass bitch. You spent the first 5 matches spamming smash attacks and your side B. You’re the only one on this list who has gotten laid recently, but it doesn’t matter because you lasted a minute. Donkey Kong: You actually hate playing Smash, and everyone playing with you. You don’t play to win, you play to inspire the greatest amount of anger around you. You cannot go 48 hours without saying the N word. Hard R. Jigglypuff: You were born incomplete. Some piece of you is missing. Maybe it’s the part of your brain that dictates rational choice, or the part that controls empathy. Maybe it’s your impulse control. Maybe, just maybe, you were born without a soul. You started small, at first. Mice and squirrels, and then you grew bolder. Your neighbor’s cat had gotten outside. She would never find the poor thing. Your parents soon discovered what you did, and their punishments forced you to keep dormant your dark desires. You carried on with your life, feigning normalcy, a model student and son. That was until the day you met her. It was autumn, your first semester at college, your first time away from home. She stirred something in you. You took her out, flirted with her, bought her drinks, she was so pure and sweet, so trusting. You left with her, the intoxication swelling inside you both. She tripped, you caught her. You looked at her then. She was so beautiful, so alive. You cut her open. You cut her open because you had to know. Why was she so beautiful? How was she so alive? You cut and cut until she was no longer beautiful, no longer alive. You stared at what you had done, tears in your eyes, not from guilt or remorse, only the pure reflex, as though you knew you should cry, but didn’t understand why. When you came back down to a neutral calm, you disposed of the body, washed yourself of any and all evidence. You knew the first thing you needed to do was establish an alibi. You called up your roommate: “Hey” you said “Wanna hang out tonight?” Your roommate replied “Sure, my friend brought over his Switch, we’re gonna play Smash Ultimate.” You smiled, licking the final traces of viscera from your teeth, and said “Great, I’ll be there in 10.” Kirby: You are Masahiro Sakurai, desperately trying to convince everybody that your favorite boy is best. Put Mappy in the game you fucking cunt. Lucina: You are the comedic straightman of your group. You go through life with two moods, neutrality or exasperation at your louder, more fun friends. Your spirit animal is Squidward and, like Squidward, you are the top sad boy. At least your cats love you. Chrom: You’re the mouthbreathing kind of weeb. You have objectively bad taste. You either want Goku and Sora in Smash, or you want the entire roster replaced with other characters from Fire Emblem. Little Mac: You have a 2 digit IQ, and managing air combat is too much for you. You have eaten at least three Joycons since you started playing Smash. Your go-to excuses for losing are bad recovery moves and the helmet you’re forced to wear falling in front of your eyes. Robin: You have LARPed before. Ironically, considering the game your main comes from, your best friend is a Chrom main. You honestly can do better than hanging out with them, but then you’d have to find a new 4th for your D&D group. Sonic: You’re just a sad person. Either because you’ve got the specific kind of autism that develops in fans of Sonic the Hedgehog, or because you’ll inevitably be lumped in with those people. You know deep down the speed isn’t worth the pain you feel inside. You ask yourself why you keep playing, but you can never come to an answer. You can’t outrun your problems, Sonic main. Pichu: You didn’t know that your attacks did damage to you until someone pointed it out to you, and you didn’t want to look like an idiot, so you pretended like you knew that. In a panic, you came up with some lie about how Pichu is actually really good, and now you’re just sorta stuck with it. Pikachu: You are the boyfriend of a Peach main. You don’t actually like playing Pikachu that much, it’s just that whenever she gets bored playing, she’ll just sit and watch you play, but demand you play as Pikachu because “it’s so cute.” Even when you’re playing with your friends, and you really want to win, you curse yourself and choose Pikachu. Ness: You love Earthbound. You have also never played Earthbound, you just know it by reputation. You also love Undertale, and you probably voted it as game of the year when it came out. You like to think you’re really skilled at Ness, but when things get too hard, you just spam PK Fire and the baseball bat. You’re not impressing anyone. Fox: You played Smash Ultimate for 5 minutes, saw all the items and stages, got mad, and went back to Melee. You’re currently waiting for the Project M version of Ultimate. You get the saltiest out of everyone on the list. You have told someone who doesn’t like Dark Souls to git gud. Duck Hunt: You’re like a Donkey Kong main without the hate, or a Jigglypuff main without the urge to kill. When the Duck Hunt dog laughs at someone for not shooting all the ducks, you feel that on spiritual level. You are probably the happiest person on this list, which makes other people angry, and in turn, only makes you happier. Zelda: You secretly crossdress and are ashamed of it. Within 5 years, you’ll gradually become more and more comfortable with it, until you eventually become a really obnoxious drag queen. Like, the kind that only watches Ru Paul’s Drag Race and nothing else. Regardless, you spam Din’s Fire like a motherfucker, just like everyone else who plays Zelda. Link: You’re boring and suck ass. You play as Oddjob in Goldeneye and use the rocket launcher in Halo. There’s a good chance you’re the least skilled player on the list and don’t even know it. Your favorite skin is the Dark Link skin, because of course it fucking is. R.O.B: You have a video game collection that’s about the cost of a mortgage. You have at least 6 or 7 Game Gears, a fully functional arcade cabinet, and a R.O.B which you brag about whenever you play Smash with new people. If you could have one wish, it would be to work for Nintendo. Snake: You think gamers are the most oppressed minority, and the reason for why Quiet from MGSV is half-naked makes total sense and is genius writing. You respond to news stories about black criminals with something racist, and then cite average IQ scores to defend yourself. If there’s a comment section attached to this list, you’ll leave an angry comment about being called racist. Bowser: You’re a divorced dad in your 40s who bought a Switch to try to win your son’s affections for when he comes over on alternating weekends. You picked Bowser because you thought it would be cute to do Team Smash with him as Bowser and Bowser Jr., but whenever your kid comes over, he only ever plays something called Fortnite. You tried it out, and it was too scary and confusing, so now you just drink and play Smash because at least you recognize the characters. Your ex’s new husband is a better and more attentive lover than you ever will be. Mewtwo: Unlocking Mewtwo in Melee by spending a total of 20 hours in VS matches was the greatest accomplishment of your sad, pathetic life. Conversely, Mewtwo being replaced by Lucario in Brawl was the worst tragedy you have ever experienced. You got the Smash 4 DLC just to bring some meaning back into your life. Out of all the Pokemon mains, you are the only one who is still an avid Pokemon player. You are the most likely person on this list to kill yourself. Ike: You totally go to the gym all the time and drink all those protein shakes. For reals though this faggot is a slow faggot who couldn’t air recover if his life depended on it. Honest to god you might as well just admit your a fagot who just wants to pretend he’s Guts so you can make your peepee big. Or better yet you circlejerk on smashbros about how much Sakurai is biased. Captain Falcon: Loudest player on the list. Will scream Captain Falcon quotes and be one of the most frequent taunters. Is retarded, but only for attention. If anyone in the list is drunk right now, it’s you. If you get a KO with Falcon Punch, you will never shut the fuck up about it. Incineroar: You’re 10. You only picked this character because you picked Litten in Pokemon Sun or Moon. You only picked Litten because it was the Fire starter and you thought Fire was cooler than Grass or Water. Even you think it’s dumb that one of Incineroar’s special moves is a counter. You will either pick a different main or lose all of your friends. Simon: You are roughly 40 years old and racist. Not as racist as the Snake main, but still racist. The “deus vult” kind of racist. Despite this, you have a thing for Asian chicks. You have thought about joining the military at some point. You have unironically used the term “alpha” to describe yourself. Lucario: 75% chance you’re a furry. 20% chance you were a Mewtwo main in Melee and had to make do with Lucario in Brawl. 5% chance you’re really holding out for Goku to be in Smash, and play Lucario because he plays closest to how you imagine Goku would play. Ridley: You are an incredible piece of shit. Now that Ridley is in Smash, the new top characters on your wishlist are Master Hand and Master Chief. You don’t care about balance or thematic consistency, winning or losing, you are simply here to disrupt. You quit the game whenever you’re about to lose. Mr. Game and Watch: Shut the fuck up. You don’t main Mr. Game and Watch. Nobody mains Mr. Game and Watch. You spam B and then do side B whenever somebody gets too close. You first learned about the Game and Watch from Melee just like the rest of us. You’re not special. You’re NOTHING. Pit: You mained him in Brawl back when he was OP, and since he’s been nerfed, all you do is sit in the corner, spamming projectiles and the occasional side B when somebody gets too close. If the match has more than two players, you will guaranteed be the first to die. Wario: The most graceful winner on the list, which is faint praise, because they’re among the saddest in real life. They know they’re pathetic though, and that’s why they don’t get angry about losing. Will either kill themselves one day or die of a heart attack by age 50. Lucas: Even moreso than Ness mains, lies about playing the Mother games. Will do nothing but PK Freeze and PK Thunder. Will never, ever win, and will only ever cost you a victory. If they do manage to win, you’ve either found the top 1% of Smash players, or you’ve started the apocalypse. Ice Climbers: Like Duck Hunt mains, except you aren’t trying to troll anyone intentionally. You will forget how annoying your specials can be right up until after you’ve hit someone with them. Nobody is happy when you win, and you are definitely the least happy out of everyone. You just want everyone to get along. Don’t be such a damn pussy, pussy, you a damn pussy. Villager: You suck ass, but you’re the only one who doesn’t know it. You think Villager is better than he actually is, and you overemphasize how creepy he looks. You are the kind of person who thinks button mashing is a strategy, and that having having no strategy counts as “mind games.” You like creepypastas way too much. Mega Man: You are the least likely person on the list to have had sex, which is good because there’s a 50% chance you’re into little boys. You are also the person on the list who has played an NES game most recently. You complain about the number of characters with swords in the game, but it’s secretly because any decent player who mains one can beat you easily. Will sing along to the theme music whenever on the Wily’s Castle stage. Samus: You are the only one on the list who actively wants all items on. You alternate between spamming your charge shot, and spamming your grab. If you’re good, you will always get first. If not, you will always die first and bitch about it. Nobody knows who invited you over, but everyone secretly wishes you weren’t here. Dark Samus: You mained Samus and always picked her dark suit skin before Ultimate. Not even you asked for this character to be in Smash, and even you couldn’t really explain how they’re different from Dark Samus. When you tell someone you play Smash and they ask who your main is, you forget Dark Samus exists for a minute before telling them. Yoshi: There’s a 50% chance you are an actual child. If you’re not a child, then you either only play Smash for fun, or you are the best player on the list. Either way, it makes you among the saddest people on the list. You’re a good sport for the entire game, right up until you win by spitting them out as an egg right on the edge of the map. Wii Fit Trainer: You’re not actually good at Smash, you’re just good at improvising. You’re playing the game on the fly and just so happen to be lucking out every time you use the volley ball. There is a bone in your brain that compels you to yell “SALUTE THE SUN!” at least once per game. You definitely want to fuck the Wii Fit Trainer. Luigi: You are a down-to-earth, lovable loser who thinks Mario is too normal or obvious a choice. You legitimately find Luigi’s moves and animations to be funny and probably still laugh at Adam Sandler movies. Whenever you win a game, you take forever to press start just because you want to watch his victory pose for as long as possible. If you ever win with the kick taunt, then everybody you know literally hates you. Sheik: You are on both the LGBT and autism spectrums. You also have a Tumblr account. You met all of your friends online and have never talked to them in real life. You are unable to talk and play at the same time. You are probably really good at the game, but are still a sore loser, and will likely be the first to rage quit. Dr. Mario: You are a hipster that only picked Dr. Mario becomes nobody mains him. You pretend like you’ve always mained him, even though you used to main Link, and thought “why the fuck is Dr. Mario a character” when you saw him in Melee, just like the rest of us. You think it’s really cool that his side smash has lightning coming out of his hand but will never admit it. Richter: You embody all the negative traits of a Simon main, except you’re half as old and not OPENLY racist. Instead, you’re just really into metal and think you’re way more badass than you actually are. You own a Punisher t-shirt and have taken a picture of yourself posing with an assault rifle. You have the smallest dick out of everyone on the list. Diddy Kong: Your play style is the strategic equivalent of an infant slapping at a control. You will use the same move over an over again until it stops being effective, at which point you simply move onto a new one. You are the worst person to lose to. You will wake up one day realizing everybody hates you and not know why. This. This is why. Cloud: You only picked Cloud because you were excited to see him get added to Smash. You also will freely admit that fact with no shame whatsoever. You are the Chrom main’s only other friend besides the Robin main. You both bond over your love of anime boys and desire for Sora to be playable in Smash. You are easily the gayest player on the list. Mii Fighters: Either you’re playing as your actual Mii, in which case you have the lowest functioning level of autism on the list and are taking the game seriously, or you’re playing as a joke Mii, in which case you are guaranteed to have a fun time. It doesn’t matter either way, because you’ve never won a single game of Smash in your entire life. Roy: You’re like the Marth main, except you were also the kind of kid who had serious anger issues and screamed swear words at people in class when you were mad. You picked Roy over Marth because his special moves had fire. If Snake were playable in Melee, you would’ve picked him as your main. Olimar: You are the only person on the list who has ever played one of the Pikmin games all the way through. You are an eldritch abomination whose schemes and machinations are unknowable by man. You are the only one boring enough to pay attention to damage types. The ultimate irony of your playstyle is that you will die alone. Greninja: You are also 10. Your best friend is the Incineroar main, at least for now. If you don’t currently watch Naruto, you’re going to get way too into it very soon. You will make excuses and get salty every time you get hit, but you will brag and act like you’re the ultimate chessmaster every time you land a hit. You insist on playing with Final Smashes and no other items. Dark Pit: You’re right in the middle of a venn diagram between Ike main and Greninja main. You’re 13 years old. Everything you do and think is cool right now, you will look back on with embarrassment when in 5 years time. Unless you have actual autism, in which case you’ll never have a moment of self-realization. Instead, you’ll make really bad fan art of your favorite video game and cartoon characters. Ignorance is bliss. Toon Link: You are only the tiniest bit better than the Link main, and yet inexplicably aren’t nearly as hated as them. Lying comes as easily to you as breathing, and you do so without any semblance of guilt. You have a career in politics, Palutena: You pick your main in every game based on waifu status, and your playstyle is finding one combo you like and spamming it repeatedly. You play Skyrim with a mod that lets you play as a big-titted anime lady. You say you prefer subtitled anime to English dubs, but you actually don’t. Your taste in music is shit. Ryu: You’re insecure about playing a kid’s game and refuse to play as any characters that are cartoony, female, or a prettyboy. You won’t ever actually buy a Switch, because Nintendo is for babies, but you’ll still play it with your bros, because you’re the guy who calls people “bro.” You’re only playing as Ryu until they put in Goku or Master Chief. Ken: You’re confused about your sexuality and compensate for it by making overtly sexual statements and calling them jokes. You probably shit talk the most out of everyone else playing. You go to the gym just so you can talk about going to the gym. Bowser Jr. You’re one of the biggest Nintendo fanboys on the list, and got really excited when you saw that all of the other skins for Bowser Jr. were the Koopalings. You pretend like you know all of their names, but there’s always 1 or 2 that you keep forgetting. You can see what they look like in your mind but you can’t remember their name. You know they were all named after different musicians, but that doesn’t help you remember their names, because you know even less about the musicians than you do the characters, because the only thing you’re really knowledgeable about is pointless minutia about video games, and even now you’re proving how little impact that knowledge has on your life. If Nintendo did an NES Classic type deal for the N64 or the Gamecube, you would pay thousands of dollars for them, even though you’ve already got both consoles. Isabelle: You’re a mom that doesn’t actually play video games, you’re just doing this because your kid wanted somebody to play with. You picked the dog because she was cute. You’re either accidentally too good at the game, kick your kid’s ass, and make them cry, or you suck so hard that you’re actually less fun to fight against than the CPU. In 3 years, your kid will have moved on to FPS’ and you’ll look back on Smash with a mix of nostalgia and sadness, because your kid doesn’t want to play with you any more. You read James Patterson books, love win, and masturbate in the shower. Rosalina & Luma: You play the piano, harvest bull semen, or do something else outside of video games that requires two hands. You’re also big into RTS games. Something about controlling legions of forces, sending hundreds to their deaths, having so much power at your disposal awakens something deep inside of you. Even you leave off the “& Luma” part when talking about the character. Young Link: You are the token girl of a group of guys. Every single one of them wants to fuck you because you’re an average-looking girl who likes video games. You will be oblivious to all of it, and date some guy outside of your friend group. Half of them will start to resent you. All of them will be waiting for the opportunity to catch you at a vulnerable moment and have a one night stand with you. It will inevitably happen. It will be with the least shit guy of the group (which isn’t saying much) and ruin most of your interpersonal relationships. You also spend way too much money at conventions. Ganondorf: You are also the token girl of a group of guys, but you’re also a fat, butch lesbian. You try way too hard to be one of the guys, chug beers even though everybody else is drinking like normal, and you very blatantly burp and fart. You will continue to act like this into your 40s at which point your hair will be gray and permanently styled in a faux hawk. Despite all this, you will have the hottest wife out of everyone on this list. Zero Suit Samus: You picked her so you could play as her two-piece skin and masturbate with the screen paused, didn’t you? King K. Rool: You were the kind of kid who ate paste and would always demand first choice of characters because it was your birthday. You use the most OP options in any game but will say that something is unfair when it beats you. The only reason we’re letting you play with us is because mom says have to, and you’ll tell on us if we don’t. Shulk: You have an annoying voice. You don’t eat gluten, even though you don’t have any food allergies. You think all FPS games are stupid except for Overwatch. You use Tumblr slang in real life and have to ship every fictional character you come across. You’ve cried more recently than anyone else on the list, and you literally can’t even right now. Falco: You’re like a Fox main with less autism. In some ways, however, you are much worse than them. When you aren’t using Falco’s blaster to make enemies flinch, you’re telling women to kill themselves on the Internet. You are the guy who goes to the bar to go after women with low self-esteem. You definitely yell the N word during heated gaming moments. Pac-Man: You are the antithesis of the Mario main, and the type of person who always want to have new “experiences.” You will date a teenager and defend it to your friends by saying “age is just a number.” You also cheat on your partners and then act like you were the victim because you were “suffocating” by being expected to be monogamous. Your favorite food is some weird kind of pizza or burger that’s named after an Arcade Fire song and only available at a local restaurant whose name is a pun. Piranha Plant: Some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn. Joker: You decided you would main this character before you ever played them because you love JRPGs so much. You say “u mad bro?” to annoy people even though you have the worst anger management of anyone on the list. You unironically liked the game “Hatred” and will switch to Doomguy if he gets put in Smash. Random: You’re pretty cool.

2020.09.19 03:32 shadowlarvitar [M4F] Seeking partners for a Pokemon adventure

Disclaimer: ALL canon characters will be considered 18+ for roleplaying purposes.
Hello, I am looking for partners interested in partaking in a Pokemon adventure with me. I'm in a really bad place right now and could use some rping to help cheer me up, though I'm sure this'll just get ignored and downvoted to hell like usual...
A couple of things, I want NSFW. 'Fade to black' is honestly boring and if you build something up? Feels like there really isn't a payoff, ya know? And while there will be NSFW/smut, Pokemon will NOT be involved in any of it! If that sounds rude I apologize but I'm just trying to make it clear that I'm not into that :/
I've been a Pokemon fan for... when did Red/Blue come out in the states? A long time. But lately getting Pokemon partners is just an endless struggle as you have those that don't like nsfw(nothing wrong with that of course!) and the people that do yet insist Pokemon get in on it! Needless to say it can be quite troublesome finding a partner that is into humanxhuman stuff and is okay with nsfw scenes.
I'd also like to pair my OC against canon characters, I can double up if it helps! I'll have a list of preferred characters below for you to play as, I can play as pretty much any male(s) you'd like for your character, we can do an even split or if you're feeling generous to play multiple characters for my OC yet only want one slowburn character for your OC that is acceptable as well! The only character I refuse to play is Leon, I simply don't like the guy haha
I honestly don't care for length but if you're the sort that wants an essay on what my character's cereal tastes like then you're in the wrong place. I type what needs to be said, rather it takes three sentences or two paragraphs. I don't set a requirement as it takes the fun away! Just don't post a single sentence per reply or worse, "She smiled." and "She nodded".
Anyways here are some plots, we don't have to do them if you've got something then I'm happy to hear it! Kanto and Johto are missing cause I honestly find those regions boring.
Hoenn: I was thinking maybe a Delta Emerald style roleplay? Like the Ruby and Sapphire remakes except more in Emerald's style. With the Battle Frontier actually present!
Sinnoh: Okay so what I think would be cool is a regular Pokemon journey through Sinnoh but with an overarching plot of Cyrus wanting to find Arceus. Like having the literal god of Pokemon not be used in the plot of any game feels like wasted potential!
Unova: Here me out, I want to do what the anime should have done for Best Wishes. Basically Ash won the Sinnoh League and now we've got a new protagonist starting his adventure in the Unova region! With darker themes to match the Black/White games. The group dynamic can be decided on upon messaging.
Kalos: Alright so this takes place after the events of the XY games. It has been several years since the Team Flare incident and suddenly Team Flare's resurfaced with a new leader behind them and to make things worse the champion is missing! Team Flare's goal is a mystery to the public but they're after the Zygarde cores and cells, instead of Team Flare going around and doing stupid random shit like in the games they're actually doing that to cover their search of Zygarde in the nearby area.
Alola: Again basically a different take on Alola for the anime. Ash won the Kalos League(Like he should have) and a new character is the focus. Having just moved to Alola he begins his journey expecting a fun time but ends up discovering that he's the hero destined to save Alola from the incoming darkness! (I'd also be willing to do the school angle; But think of it as more of an Academy given how old they are)
Galar: I know the likelihood of finding somebody whose wanting to do this region might be low... but I'd really like to do a journey for this region! I had an idea for this region too but I have no freaking clue where it went to! Can't seem to find it. I'm open to plotting, I LOVE Galar! It's my favorite region :)
Females I'd like to play against: (Bold are preference)
Pokemon - Sonia, Nessa, Lusamine, Melony, Cynthia, Delia Ketchum, Amara/Sima/Kiawe's mom, Mallow, Dawn, May, Flannery, Honey, Korrina, Misty's sisters, Domino, Cassidy, Jessie, Kahili, Olivia, Lillie, Malva, Lorelei, Lisia, and various others not listed.

2020.09.18 21:25 Hy6D4o9 Food Wars: A personal opinion

We all have that one show that means something to us and this is the one for me.
I've just watched episode 11 and while we can all agree that the last season should never have been made, I actually really enjoyed this episode.
I discovered Food Wars because it was mentioned by Gigguk in one of his videos. What made me start watching it was a pretty silly thing: Ikumi's boob physics. I had never seen anything so hilarious and gave the show a try (I started from season 2).
Before I realised, I was watching an anime about cooking and was really enjoying it. Despite not being a fan of the over the top fan service (excuse the pun), I was really intrigued by Soma's personality. He's a very optimistic guy, who always manages to see the glass half full rather than half empty. At the time, this resonated with me a lot as I am was the complete opposite and watching Food Wars made me realise that. It is not an understatement to say that Soma's personality helped me to deal with life's problem with a more positive attitude.
Fast forward a few years, I found myself partnered. Soon enough, one of the things I started to enjoy doing the most with my partner was...cooking! Cooking with/for him and seeing him enjoy what I/we made together was truly satisfying. At the time I wasn't aware of this and this is were episode 11 comes into play. A quote by Joichiro: ''The key for being a good chef is to find someone you feel like you can offer all your cooking to''. I have experienced this first hand and I can assure you that it is 100% true.
TLDR/In conclusion: Soma's positive attitude to life and its struggles is truly inspiring and the show's message of love couldn't be more true.

2020.09.18 00:45 Noroark 23 [F4A] Looking for a nerd who will make me laugh

Single/Taken/Complicated: Single; has never dated before.
Seeking Relationship/Friends/Squish/Other: Relationship (though I'm not opposed to making friends as well!)
Romantic Orientation: Biromantic
Gender: Cis female
Pronouns: She/her
Age: 23
Height/Build: 5'6.5", 117 lbs.
Physical Description: Pale skin (mostly Italian/Irish). Very long dark brown hair. Green eyes. Glasses. Flat as a board. Kind of ugly, lol.
Personality Description: INTJ. I used to suffer from social anxiety, though I have made a lot of improvement and am continuing to do so. I can still be a little reserved, but once you get to know me, I can be a pretty fun person. When I'm first getting to know someone, I'm most comfortable talking through text. I really enjoy talking about my interests. I'm not exactly quick-witted, but I can come up with clever material if I'm given time to think about it. I'm very introspective; my mental health isn't the greatest, and I like being able to vent to someone (although I hate feeling like a burden). I am also a good listener and eager to help others with their troubles.
Interests: Gaming--I compete in Super Smash Bros. tournaments and I just got into streaming. I'm a big Nintendo fan, and I really like Pokémon and Animal Crossing. I'm not really into movies, TV, or books (aside from popular science). There are a few anime series that I like (mostly Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and JoJo's Bizarre Adventure), but I'm not super into it. My favorite music genre is alt-rock. I love animals! I have an Australian shepherd, two cats, a chinchilla, seven tarantulas, and some fish. I collect a variety of things, including amiibo and plush Pokémon. I used to write and draw a lot, but now I only do those things every once in a while. I'm a biology nerd, and I'm studying to be a high school living environment teacher.
Location: Western New York. I'm not really interested in a super distant LDR, though I'm willing to date people in neighboring states if we can meet up every now and again.
Notes: I have no preference when it comes to appearance. I'm most attracted to a good sense of humor, and having similar interests is important to me. I don't like physical touch, but I would be willing to cuddling if it would make my partner happy. I'm sex-repulsed and not willing to compromise. My ideal date would be going out for coffee, taking a walk through the woods to look for cool bugs, and then coming home to play some Smash.

2020.09.18 00:29 suchapain From Tsunade to Mereoleona: Looking for Shonen Jump’s Lady Mentors - anime feminist

https://www.animefeminist.com/from-tsunade-to-mereoleona-looking-for-shonen-jumps-lady-mentors/
Shounen is a genre famous for its rigid tropes: underdog main characters (almost universally male) inspiringly fixated on reaching their goals, intense fight scenes, and themes of teamwork, the bonds of friendship, determination, and the power of hard work. Although the genre has received criticism for clinging so closely to established themes and tropes, its global popularity speaks for itself.
Although marketed toward boys, at least one third of Weekly Shonen Jump’s readers are now female. Despite this, Shonen Jump’s female characters remain over-sexualized, helpless, or useless beyond serving a role as the main character’s love interest. The manga and anime world has not yet caught up with the times by creating female characters that are both realistic and sympathetic to their real-world counterparts, and as prominent and important as their male costars. If one in three readers are female, why are female characters still relegated to the sidelines?
Perennial favorites Naruto and its sequel Naruto Shippuden by Kishimoto Masashi were among the first series to break this mold, including a cast of female characters with powerful skills and personalities who actually contributed to the plot. Naruto was originally published from 1999 to 2014 and, although by today’s standards its female representation is lacking, was truly ahead of its time. This may even have contributed to its international success, as it provided female fans with the opportunity to finally see themselves portrayed with attempted nuance and respect in a shounen manga.
Unfortunately, both Naruto series are full of women who are either strong, well-written characters without much screen time, or weaker characters who appear more frequently. Prominent among them is the most powerful woman for most of the series, Lady Tsunade.
...
It’s storytelling choices like these that send a silent but powerful message to female viewers: you’re not as important as the men. You’ll always need someone to rescue you. You’re not as interesting and you’ll never be as powerful, because if you were, you’d receive the same amount of attention. Not only is this subtle message harmful to female watchers, it’s not a great message for men and boys to internalize either. It reinforces the omnipresent societal idea that women are inferior, their struggles and stories don’t matter, and that instead of being a partner on equal footing, they’ll always cause problems by needing to be taken care of or rescued.
And this is why Black Clover is so meaningful to me. It’s one of the more recent battle shounen, having premiered in 2015, and it seems like an extremely typical shounen anime at first glance. With an underdog male protagonist who passionately wants to achieve his goals, teams of magical elite fighters, and inspirational themes, it has even been accused of being a cheap Naruto knock-off. However, if you stick around a little longer (and don’t worry, the further you get into the series the less Asta will be busting your eardrums!), it becomes clear that it might have done the impossible. Finally, here is a shounen battle anime with female characters who work hard, are vital members of their teams, can take on and defeat male characters in a fight, and actually get a lot of screen time!
...
I won’t lie – I teared up at that scene. It was the first time I saw two powerful women in an anime share an intimate student/teacher moment, and it was truly impactful. It reminded me of something that could have happened between Naruto and Jiraiya, and what I wish we could have seen between Sakura and Tsunade or even Hinata and Kurenai.
Moments like this provide the audience with a greater understanding of and connection to a character, and it’s unfortunate and telling that they almost exclusively happen with male characters. In that moment, we saw Mereoleona and Noelle not as love interests for the main character, not as sex objects, not as helpless damsels, not even as fierce but one-dimensional warriors, but as fully articulated people. They were simply two women sharing a powerful moment completely unrelated to any of the men in the story.
That’s what makes Black Clover an unexpectedly ground-breaking show. Instead of portraying its female characters as walking airheaded stereotypes or cautious depictions of an archetypal “strong woman,” it simply treats them as people.
Black Clover has truly raised the bar for depictions of female leaders in shounen anime, and of female characters in general, as these solid portrayals are not just limited to women in leadership positions. Almost every single woman—Captain Charlotte, Mimosa, Charmy, Vanessa, Captain Dorothy, and even Fana, among others—is strong enough to win a fight against most of the boys; self-contained enough that even when they have questionably strong crushes, it doesn’t impair their judgement in moments of crisis; and well-rounded enough that they operate outside the needs and desires of the male characters.
Shounen anime has strong, inspirational messages of teamwork, personal excellence, and never giving up, and it’s exciting to see this become even more accessible to its many female fans. Despite the criticism I have of Naruto and Naruto Shippuden, they still remain two of my absolute favorite anime and have given me many valuable lessons that continue to shape my life. Especially when compared to the female representation in contemporary shounen anime like One Piece, it’s clear that despite often falling short, Naruto made valuable advancements in portraying its female characters with fairness and respect. I’m happy to see that Black Clover has picked up where they left off and is helping propel the genre to a new level.
Representation in media matters. Not only does everyone deserve to see themself portrayed in a thoughtful, inspiring way, it’s time for those who have always seen themselves on screen to receive more insight into the lives, thoughts, and struggles of those who remain more marginalized in our world.

It's nice a person likes Black Clover.
What about Fairy Tail? If you go to the ranker list of The Best Female Anime Characters and click to list by women voters, the top 10 has 5 fairy tail girls. So do women like Fairy Tail? Is it possible women like this show because of scenes like this or this or this or this and it doesn't matter that Fairy Tail also contains boobs and fan-service?
(I linked some fight scenes up there, but I'm not an expert on what women like. It's possible Fairy Tail girls rank high on that ranker list because the show does something right with them outside of the fight scenes that women like, but if so I wouldn't know what scenes to link to. Levy is ranked 6th and she's not a fighter. And this character is 7th.)
Another datapoint: on The 30+ Best Shounen Anime Of All Time list Fairy Tail is 20th if you order by men, but click on women and its number 1.
A feminist analysis of Fairy Tail would probably call it problematic because it contains boobs and fan-service, but what if it is actually fine and harmless if Fairy Tail exists for the men and women who enjoy it?

2020.09.17 15:30 xXmosseater69Xx Something I really dislike about the lineup of figures in pretty much all of generations

ever since generations came out back in 2011ish, and even its predecessor lines like classics and universe, there is a big problem with who gets figures made of them. No, I’m not gonna start rambling about how unicron trilogy and animated needs more attention, either. Despite generations being a very g1 centric line, they have only really payed attention to the American cartoon cartoon 1984-1987 characters, with a few exceptions such as the jumpstarters, a few decepticon Targetmasters, overlord and his preetool, black shadow being released in titans return. However, this still leaves a majority of late g1, especially European and Japanese characters, practically forgotten by hasbro and Takara. Sure we got 2 black shadow figures in generations, but we haven’t even seen any new figure of his partner in crime, blue bacchus, in over 30 years. Mind you these two only appeared in one episode of victory, and while sky shadow has gotten two new figures, not even the decepticon leader from victory, deathsaurus, has gotten a good newer figure, having only two half-assed retools, one for BotCon, and another that doesn’t even resemble deathsaurus for combiner wars. We haven’t seen any version of star saber released in the United States, and the dinoforce and multiforce haven’t even gotten any new figures at all since their creation in 1989, despite having some of the best and unique designs and concepts for combiner teams from the g1 era. Just because a western audience isn’t familiar doesn’t mean they won’t be popular, a generations series focusing on victory characters would sell extremely well with fans who don’t wanna pay ludicrous sums of money for outdated and rare figures to represent those characters.

2020.09.17 13:08 CometFaraday2002 Hazbin hotel, marvel and more! Entertainment awaits

I’m back baby with new fandoms and ideas for the world to entertain! Just beware- sometimes Reddit doesn’t let me view comments so please message me
I’ll open with fandoms, to save anyone searching for hours: •marvel-specifically venom, carnage and the other symbiotes and hosts. I have many ideas, many of which are canon x oc. •Hazbin hotel- this is my newest fandom. Obviously there isn’t much to go off of character wise but I will state I have a large preference for Al. I know he’s ace and aro but all the ships I see him in has be begging for a good story! •seven deadly sins-canon x oc is a big thing. I’m caught up on both manga and anime now and would love to just brainstorm ideas and different aus •transformers- oh god. Canon x canon or canon x oc. Maybe oc x oc. I’ve seen a lot of different continuities from G1 to armada and the recent movies. Armada is my top choice if I’m honest •hellboy- ive read a few comics and seen quite a few of the movies. Canon x oc for this one! Maybe oc x oc •blue exorcist- manga and anime all caught up! Canon x oc or oc x oc please!
Now- if it isn’t too obvious I’m not a huge fan of canon x canon pairings. I will do them bit it isn’t a common thing. I’m more of an oc player myself with my parter assuming the roll of canon. I try and make up for my severe lack of character interpretation with being advanced literate and a huge fan of plotting and talking ooc.
Genre wise- I love romance. It’s a must in all of my roleplays even if not the main one. I also love family roleplays, wether that be a conflict between parent and child, siblings or a rather fluffy family building love story.
I don’t often enjoy oc x oc stories but when I do I love them! Fantasy is my calling with this stuff. Dragons, other realms, inter species love stories- gah they make my little writer soul sing.
I’ll say that for things like limits you’ll have to message me as Reddit classes a lot of the sort of stuff as nsfw. Rule wise however is simple- please be literate. It’s horrible when you put paragraphs into a starter and your partner gives a few lines for poorly written words. I’m not strict on how many lines I get a day but I would prefer to have a couple of replies in the week and if that’s not possible let me know. I know how it can be sometimes, wether that be life, mental health, work or just existence in general. Please do not spam me either.
I hope to hear from you all soon! My dms are always open!

2020.09.17 03:19 AngelofDeath2020 Would the ongoing Pinoy BL trend continue or not?

[Fair warning: Please, if you can not appreciate this topic, leave us alone. I only posted it here so I can get the reactions of some LGBT-allies and those who can 'appreciate' this kind of topic. Thank you.]
Sawatdi. As you may have known, the BL trend has reached our shores thanks to IdeaFirst Co.'s Gameboys and Black Sheep's Hello Stranger and a few others notably, by Ride or Die's Quaranthings: The Series, AsterisK Digital Entertainment's My Extraordinary, and Globe Studios' #\Gaya sa Pelikula, and many, many more. Funny though, it was only in 2018 that I discovered KrisSingto from GMMTV's SOTUS and SOTUS S The Series & the original 2 Moons and, Together with me. Back in those days, I was a bit excited and shocked that Asians had gone this far. For all I know, these kind of stories are only featured either on Netflix or on Western TV shows.
Boys' Love was originally from Japan as in the form of manga and less frequently in mainstream media like anime. It also has its fanbase in Taiwan and China [\well, sort of, guess the Great WALL (not well, sry for the typo) isn't working well enough for Fundanshi/Fujoshis :))) fight me..] BL, in my personal knowledge, also its origin from its more erotic and sensual cousin, the Yaoi genre. Typically, yaoi is more pronounced in mangas and rarely in animes. Its main theme usually focuses on tragedy, humor, BDSM, erotic gay fantasies and yes, rape. Bara is yaoi's more, more erotic cousin, usually hairy, very muscular men akin to beefcakes are featured. Strangely, its target audience are teenage girls from Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, China and yes, even the United States. Had to admit though, the Yaoi/BL genre is a bit sensual and erotic at best. Examples include Water Boyy The Series from Thailand (though I did not finished it) and Banana Fish (2018) bananafish -- as the Yaoi/BL is also not limited to erotic/sensual themes, it also has a more affectionate, albeit platonic side, akin to bromance on another level.
As with the discussion mentioned above, I was a bit shocked when these things suddenly erupted in Youtube. Nagulat ako! As a Filipino discreet gay guy, I was shocked. There is this certain level of fear and ostracization that I might get, even in the Alter world for supporting this in the context of these things appearing in the Philippine media setting. I was also EXCITED. I was more comfortable viewing Japanese/Thai even western medias depicting these kind of relationships and commenting on them on social media as the fans were more open and less irrational pertaining to their views of morality, etc.
Up to this day, I am still skeptical if this wave would continue or would just disappear once the restrictive lockdowns disappear. I am really curious if these things would continue. The view of most Filipinos to LGBTs on mainstream media are more on the entertainment value, and not on the issues that really surround most of us like discrimination, ostracization and failing to keep moralistic traditions like marriage and reproductive babymaking like rabbits. Pinoy gay men are often less valued especially on our own abilities. These discriminations are more pronounced in conservative workplaces (and sometimes in the liberal ones) and we are often tagged as weak or ridiculed for our preferences, or stereotyped. This is in contrast with straight men/women whose stories have been told countless times in Teleseryes and classic Pinoy novels and even PHPrecious Heart Romances novels with recurring themes like endless ligawan, kabitan, agawan, palitan ng anak, diaries, endless 'last will testament' changes, and bida/kontrabida stories. Never was there a legit acknowledgement of LGBT stories or BL themed stories and gay men are always included as an 'joyful parlorista character siding with the bida' in the story. Gay men are not often depicted in a good light. One example is GMA Network's Asawa Ko, Karibal Ko in 2018 were it won UPLB Isko’t Iska's Most Gender Transformative Program and nominated in the 33rd PMPC for Best Daytime TV show. Yes the story is quite extraordinary, imagine a transsexual trying to be your partner who was later revealed as your wife's ex-husband. Great story with a lot of sabunatan - agawan themes with the wife of the ex-husband now playing as the kontrabida/trans wife. Lack of imagination I guess, I am not well impressed on this. Or is it GMA Network's doing, pushing its own conservative-moralistic and often times bigoted agenda? Meron pa, I remember some stories featured in Kapuso MO Jessica Soho with gay men marrying lesbian women to become 'legit' families or the endless features of those stories in Mel Tiangco's Magpakailanman.

COME ON PEOPLE, FEATURE GAY MEN PARTNERING WITH GAY MEN.

As I support all kinds and types of love across our lovely rainbow, I'm afraid GMA 7 is pushing too much of its subtle intervention to convert gay men to 'married' gay men with lesbian women. Though it is a choice for some, featuring stories like these are a bit narrow and a true attack on the diverseness of the LGBT realm. Please feature true lesbian and gay couples not lesbian + gay couples or gay + lesbian couples.
I am really rooting for more representation on this matter. Like Pinoy BL being a real mainstream with real Zoom/Mall shows in the near future. Let's face it, Philippines really like to hide behind its moralistic view on the universe, most especially to our Christian tradition handed down by our former colonizers. I am hoping for the better. Taiwan, as you and I know is the first Asian country to make Same sex marriages legal.
Surprisingly, Thailand, Vietnam and even Japan are also making the similar moves in the near future. Enjoying this subgenre should be something be thought of enjoying love without borders instead of imposing other religious beliefs and/or moralistic approach to one's own point of view. After all, love is love. there should be freedom on who should be we love. Love should not be something on which what society favors you to love or what your peers are pressuring you on loving. Bakit, sila ba ikaw para sila ang mamili ng mamahilin mo? Kontento na ako sa buhay ko at hindi naman ako ganun kadesperado to be teased with someone. Sila ba, masaya ba sa buhay nila? Ask them. Sila ata desperado magka-syota.

REALLY FUNNY THOUGH, SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IS LEGAL in SPAIN, and the UNITED STATES.

EVEN THE JEWS in ISRAEL's KNESSET are now on the way of making it LEGAL, so WHAT IS STOPPING US? THE VATICAN?

2020.09.16 23:12 Odd_Ending Can we PLEASE stop worshipping Japan?

Ah, Japan. A country with some of the leading industries of technology, media, video games, merchandise, and music. A land of tradition with all sorts of mythological creatures, respect for the elderly, and with an unique, diverse language.
We all wish powerful industry and appealing cultural background made for a good country. It does not. Here comes a rant. I'm not sure I can link anything in here, so I might post some links in the comments.
First off, let me tell you about sexuality and gender in Japan. If you are not interested on this, advance to the highlighted 'Pedophilia' a few paragraphs below.
Let's start off by the fact that gay marriage is currently illegal in Japan. So was legally changing your gender on your papers until 2004, the which you can now do, right?
Yesss... sure... If you have been diagnosed with “Gender Identity DISORDER” (性同一性障害) to undergo the medical procedures that correspond. And to be diagnosed with this ´´´´´DISORDER´´´´´ you will need to:
- Being over the age of 22 – The which is being debated to being reduced to 20 by 2022 –
– Have not married
– Have ALREADY started undergoing sex reassignment surgery
– Have been STERILIZED forcefully – not kidding here –
– Having no children the whom are under the age of 20
– Having a third-party opinion
– Having a genitalia that closely resembles the physical form of an alternative gender
– Have undergone a gender identity test, based only on your own experience,
– Have undergone a biological gender test, the which can contain literally any sort of examination the doctor might find plausible, but most importantly ‘An examination of chromosomes, hormonal action, internal and external genitals’,
– And several other personal tests to ensure that your decision does not come from other illnesess or cultural, social, or occupational reasons.
This can be read in The Gender Identity Disorder Special Cases Act and the 4th edition of the Diagnosis and Treatment Guidelines for “Gender Identity Disorder''.
And keep in mind that they might be 'Diagnosed' within a week, or within five years, since this elaborate investigation of your person will be over, quoted from the law, when Doctor-chan says so. And therapy is not cheap, nor easy to go through; All to be recognized as mentally ill, and having to undergo lengthy, expensive, invasive, and irreversible medical procedures.
Most patients are also required to fill out lenghty, personal questionnaires at every session that question their choice and are requested a wide personal history of themselves, going as far as baby photos.
Even if they go through all this, it's safe to say that they will forced to face impediments to find a job or school, not to mention the bullying and ostracizing they will suffer, because not only are there mandatory uniforms and segregated bathrooms in all schools, the which I can find fair, but also segregated activities, roll call, seating arrangement, and hair length
Because it is perfectly legal to expose and expel or fire a student or employee for being a part of the LGBTQ+ community, or even an avid supporter (By going to parades or just vocally expressing your support).
(And call me crazy, but if homosexuals and transgender people have to endure this dehumanizing treatment, it's likely the rest of the community, especially smaller minorities such as gender fluid, bisexual and pansexual people will receive far less recognition and/or acceptance)
What? Does Baka mitai land sound less fun now? Well cheer up, because we are going to talk about pedophilia now, that will cheer you up for sure.
Having pornographic videos or photographies featuring children only became illegal in 2014. 2014, ladies, gentlemen, and neither. And while now exchanging, producing, or being caught in possession of child pornography is now illegal, the worst penalty an individual can get for it is four years of jail time. Not to mention that regular anime and pornographic anime can be featuring children's bodies in a sexual way with no repercussions. And sure, those are drawn kids, not sentient children (But, in all seriousness, which public's desires do you think it's allowing to grow?).
Are you not convinced? Let's talk about sentient children, then. Let me introduce you to the very public world of junior idols, with cases of performing girls being even aged four years old when put on the stage, and often groomed from similar ages until they are teenagers.
'But, they are only performing, right? They are in no danger' might be what you are thinking if you are a fool. Because junior idols of any age are not allowed to have a personal dating life let alone sexual relationships with the partners of their choice, but encouraged to have physical and personal interactions with their 'Fans' – Middle aged men more often than not –, privately if paid for, such as dates, private photo shoots, streaming, and live chat. This kind of activity not being restricted to idols but applicable to all adolescent and young women, by the practice of 'Enjo Kōsai' or compensated dating.
And while prostitution is illegal in Japan since the 1950s, and prostitution of a minor is illegal since 1990, Enjo Kōsai is NOT BEING REGULATED unless the man is paying ONLY for sexual favors**, THE PRACTISE INCLUDING WOMEN FROM THE AGE OF 12 TO 20.**
The age of consent in Japan varies, depending on the province, from 13 years old to 18 years old. The amount of girls in Japan who have gone for this practice is between 8% and 15%, which makes it between 5060000 and 42166.6666667 victims. And then we have people trying to justify pedophiles, and the companies that advertise animated pornography of children in the goddamn streets.
I get that many people have their lives and interests shaped by Japanese culture, but that does not give them green light to milk minorities and helpless children or abuse them denying them the possibility of having a happy, fulfilling life ahead of them. Just about 15 people out of every 100000 in Japan commit suicide, making Japan number 30 in the list of countries by suicide rate.

2020.09.16 20:49 lxmadrid 41 [M4R] Los Angeles - Chaos Magic isn't as Effective at my age

I'm bored and would love a break in the monotony- hopefully a cool chat partner that could evolve into safe trips around Los Angeles. Coffee, Breweries, Hiking, I'm open.
My daily routine as it stands involves a work out, an errand or two, and essentially counting the hours until Orel Hershiser and Joe Davis whisk me away to Dodgertown, USA. In between the major beats, you can often catch me listening to music (stuff on Lorem, classic rock, funk), podcasts, some light gaming, or reading (Empire of the Sun Moon rn).
In terms of Nerdom I'm a bit of a Red Mage, in that I can do a little bit of everything but never really got proficient enough to bust out the big time Chaos Magic spells.
On a side note- Final Fantasy 1 really should have warned you about the implications of your decisions. You needed to know from the outset that the best party was going to be White Mage, Black Mage, Fighter, Karate Guy- and that character classes like Thief and Red Mage are there for the odd duck gamers.
Ah Karate Guy... in a medieval world of swords and sorcery, you stand ready with nun-chucks and flying kicks. Did you choose armor or magic, Karate Guy? Oh course not. In fact in the late game you said to hell with those nun-chucks and started punching Evil square in the face with your bare fists.
So all that is to say that I'm not really into anime although I dipped my toe in a while back. I game some, but I wouldn't count on me to keep your Kill Streak in the Nitro. Fort Night? Haven't even tried it, but I grew up in arcades and will exclaim that WWF Wrestlefest was one of the best games of all time. I'm really not experienced in a lot of things, but I've got an open mind and a desire to learn.
So let's chat and see what happens.
Last Good Movie I saw- 42 was amazing (first time watching it. I know right?!). Host was a really fun horror movie concept. Great execution as well.
Good Show - Re-watch of Deadwood is fantastic. On a Quibi bender. They're either cool or terrible and sometimes both at the same time.
Lastly as I said above, I'm a huge Dodger fan and a patient sports fan. That is to say that if you ever wanted to get into baseball or football for that matter then I'd gladly answer all of your questions. I'm not some super expert, but I am a nerd and you know how we tend to do. Still, I came to love my teams because I found the personal stories that spoke to me so I understand that not everyone comes to something new by conventional means. (read: no one watches baseball, please watch it with me haha)

2020.09.16 15:27 Dupa-Man UFC 4- An overpriced, half finished game

UFC 3 had it's issues and still has but it was one of if not the best UFC game EA has created. And over the 2 or so years that it got updated over, it was made into a solid game for it's price. UFC 4 got announced and the trailers looked pretty good and me being a very big UFC fan and that likes MMA pre-ordered the game because it actually looked good and damn the career mode trailer that was instant nut but sadly I forgot who is making the game, EA and I fell for their trap.
BETA
Before the game came out we gotten a beta and well EA didn't even change some of the fighter models until the community gotten angry and gave them a lot of back lash and the graphics looked worse then 3 which was worrying but they fixed some of those things in the actual "Full" game release.
BUGS, STUPID ADD ON'S AND CHANGES
Anyone that played UFC 4 for an hour will experience bugs, the most frequent i get is when I takedown someone in the clinch, the opponent and I have a stroke and he gets back up or when I takedown someone the camera has a spazem and keeps moving making it hard to defend transitions on the ground and the popular, purple screen where the fight is happening but you can't see anything, it has been patched but still and very game breaking bug that a lot of people had which I'm surprised that no game tester found this one out. EA has also made brain dead changes or added stupid things no one asked for, Create a fighter is a good example, why can't we choose moves and stats? Instead we have to choose from the pre-sets which just means your fighter isn't really unique expect from the looks because, you can change the fighter style before the match starts. And the looks... who asked for a lion mask, or gucci shorts? We want a game that makes us feel like we are in the Octogon, fighting but without actually getting brain damage or getting cuts on our faces but instead we can fight a lion wearing gucci clothes, why not add judo robes or something like that? Oh nah who would want that it's all about getting roundhouse kick to the head by a cobra or a lion. Plus, they added emotes, bruh this ain't fortnite or something, not only that they are stupid as fuck and not cool emotes, still emotes wouldn't be too bad if you would do some stupid ass dance in front of your opponent. Other brain dead changes are the takedown defense, why is it R2 and L2, it was always R2 for the past 3 games, whyyy? And not only that the takedown button is the same as the punch buttons for the body, so you could be be fighting someone and hold the L2 and square button to long and go for a takedown and get countered with a submission.
GAMEPLAY, META
The gameplay for the striking is pretty much the same as UFC 3 but it doesn't feel like UFC 3, it feels more of a arcade game rather then a UFC game, not a lot changes except that you can have 3 moves that have identical button inputs which is just stupid and the amount of damage a person can take before getting knocked out is insane and punches and kicks take away barely any stamina. The ground game didn't change much at all,expect some different animations or moving to a position or being in a new ground and pound position which the ground pound is too easy to get and is very powerful and if a wrestler like Khabib gets you into postured up there is a good chance that the fight will end there, they removed elbows from top mount so the only potions you can do that in is full guard and side sadle and I've only reversed a person only like 10 times and I've been playing from launch pretty much everyday or so. Probably the biggest change to the ground game is that you get a assist which is cool I guess but its just better to learn the legacy version of the ground game (UFC 3 ground control). The clinch is probably the most broken thing in the game you can a lot of damage in the clinch and it's very confusing. Instead of adding a clinch assist to the clinch instead of the ground game would of been smart but nah, you have to learn the inputs. Some punches you can't even block even though you are holding the right block that can rock you or knock you down and there is no deny button for the clinch. The only way you can get out of it you have to move away from your opponent. The meta is just that people clinch and clinch and we thought the thai clinch was op back in UFC 3.
Career Mode
The career is an improvement from UFC 3 and is the best UFC career mode to date but most thing they added should of been in UFC 3. There is cool add on's like calling out fighters... oh wait you can't talk shit to fighters by yourself they have to speak to you first or ESPN or someone has to mention you and a fighter, which is disappointing cause how did they not think we would want to chat shit to everyone we fight, The fighter invite is just the same thing like learning moves from UFC 3. You can go down or up and stay at either one of the divisions. Training is basically sparring from UFC 3 but you have to complete a challenge to get upgrade coins or whatever they are used to upgrade your stats or to fix your stats after suffering a injury in the octagon or in training, you can also earn them when a move level ups which is when you use a certain move enough it levels up and it can be prestiged. And after you do that challenge you get a certain amount of bonus progression for a certain move which will level it up faster if you use it on your training partner. You get 4 different sparring partners- boxer, kick-boxer, wrestler and BBJ and you get challenges to do with that part of MMA and get a bonus on a move that is related to that part of MMA. If you knock out your opponent before the timer hits 0 you will not be able to use that partner because he or she is injured and you will get them back in the next camp for your next fight. You can enter the UFC through different ways like from the WFA, DWCS or get singed to UFC from the circuit when Uncle Dana comes looking for a new fighter you start at. Overall UFC 4'S career is an improvement but its nothing shocking.
New modes/ features
UFC 4 gives the classic modes like stand and bang and knockout modes with changes to the hud to look more of an arcade type of game in knockout brings new arena's from the career so any place you can fight in career you can fight in fight now and you also get the kumite arena (japanese fighting type ring of style with mortal kombat of sound effects) and back yard, you get custom fight now which let's you control pretty much most if not all aspects, you get a level system which gives you very very small amount of coins to buy cosmetics and for leveling up you get 3 random items which can be a quote, clothing items, icons or banners. You also get challenges which give you 150xp-2000xp which is very good and you can unlock items from them and you get different challenges for offline, online, career, daily etc. Overall the the features that are added are cool I guess are a cool but it doesn't really make the game amazing but it's still welcomed. Online wise you get the new blitz mode which you fight a random opponent for a minute and you move up to the get the blitz mode belt and if you loose once, you go back down to the start, this is a very cool mode and it makes every single move you do count. In the WCO you don't choose the weight class and the game changes the weight class every hour which is stupid in my opinion otherwise the changes and new features are decent.
Verdict/How EA has handled UFC 4 so far
It looked like EA was gonna handle the situation very well from the beta and from the trailers but that wasn't the case, it took them a while to fix the game breaking bugs like the purple screen bug etc and they still haven't fixed some of the bugs but after the month of the game being out they added ads to UFC 3 and UFC 4... yes, real life adds on the octagon and you get the ad play between rounds and before the fight which is absolutely unacceptable, and they only removed them when game websites wrote articles about it and did the classic " oh we are sorry, we should of asked the players and its clear that ads aren't welcome, we are sorry" classic PR EA shit, and because of them being summy as fuck the game verdict is...
3/10
If ads weren't added the game would be 5/10 but instead of improving the game they rather add ads in the game and make money from a broken,half finished game and plus the game £60 and its overpriced, the game at it's current state is £25-£30, £35 max but that's pushing it. Does UFC 4 have the potential to be the best UFC game we ever gotten from EA ? Yes, definitely but is that gonna happen any time soon? The way EA is acting right now... no way, give it 2 or so years and it will be probably the best UFC game EA created but then who knows, its EA after all.
Sorry if I missed out somethings or didn't go into detail into some aspects of the game, I don't have a lot of time to write reviews cause of personal stuff happening at the moment in my life but hope you enjoyed. Any questions or discussions are welcomed and if I got something wrong let me know and I'll fix it and put your Reddit username at the end or start of the review for helping getting the correct information for people that are wondering what UFC 4 has to offer. Thank you for reading.
“I got the game for $15 and it was worth every buck. $60 not so much though, this is the best breakdown of the game. Just an unfinished UFC game with a bunch of changes nobody asked for and no improvement where its needed”
People who gave their opinion about the game: VinceDead6,
Thank you for giving your opinion, I want this review to be the best in this sub Reddit and the best way to do that is by including the community’s thoughts and opinions about UFC 4, thank you.

2020.09.16 15:21 RagingDragon8 31 [M4F] Not going to lie, this is like a letter about the super specific person I would like to find

So this is going to be a long post. Oh yes, I'm a Spanish living in the Canary Islands but I would like to move from this place. I'm an introvert person and my passions are writing (mostly fantasy) and practicing karate. I love videogames and metal music (folk, power, melodic death, but also rock and celtic music) and I like reading. I'm unemployed right now, planning at last to do something "useful" with my life. I have suffered depression and I have some social anxiety, but this has put me in a place where I can meditate a lot (sometimes too much) about stuff, people and life. I have a few friends, but I spend most of my time alone and I'm still learning to enjoy it and to be productive without a muse to inspire me.
What kind of person am I looking for? This will also tell you more things about me.
I couldn't have a long term relationshiop with someone who would like to have children, cause I don't want. I would rather cut the relationship or stay alone forever. Please, don't be a smoker nor a supporter or corrupt political parties, I honestly give a f*ck about politics cause I can't trust a person who wants to rule over others. I would prefer that you don't follow any religion cause I believe the gods don't exist, even if there is something, some sort of fate or cr*p that play with us. Ah, of course I would like to be with an introvert woman; someone who doesn't like to go out often would be perfect, I'm not a fan of improvisation or compulsive travelling. I'm not a fan of dogs either, sorry for all the dog lovers but I wouldn't share my life with one of them. No, I don't hate animals, in fact, I would rather safe the life of a fly rather than saving that of a human I don't know, but I don't like flies either. It would be great if you liked fantasy too, as a reader o whatever. Bonus points if you prefer winteautumn, cold and rain over the sun and the hot nasty weather. And even if I sound extremely serious, I couldn't last much with someone without a sense of humour.
I've been thinking lately that there are some small details that will always make me feel lonely if I couldn't share them with a partner, although they are so detailed that I would hardly find them in another person. For example, as I writer, I never find someone to tell about my stories and it feels lonely to always keep them for myself until they are written and all. Also my passion for 'The Lord of the Rings' seems to be a weird trait of mine. I read the books and I watch the movies every year; I know the soundtrack as I don't know any other music, and to have nobody to share all that I feel with this is kind of dissapointing too. The same happens when I discover new awesome metal songs cause I have no friend to share them with. Yes, I could post them here and there and receive a like from a random person, but that's useless. I'm also a grammar snob (especially with Spanish) but I always enjoy correcting alone.
Ha, well, you may have noticed I didn't talk about the appearance. But how could I care about that if someone had all those traits? But if you are curious about me, I guess I'm a mix of a typical fantasy writer (Sanderson or Martin) and Goku.
I don't expect to receive any answer or to find the proper person, someone that amazes me, no matter where she lives or what her age is. But at least I feel more relieved after writing all this. I will edit if I ever realize that I left something behind.
Have a nice day!

2020.09.16 11:53 theofficialtovah [M4M] [21] [Discord] Looking For Partners! (Read Desc!)

Hello everyone! My name is Tovah, and I’m searching for some characters to write with, and people to befriend! :) The following information is to know for writing with me, and I have some NSFW info as well.
Here’s some stuff you need to know before reading my scenarios and messaging me:
-The most important, as this will determine if we're going to be partners or not... My character is a demon hybrid, but he isn't anthro. He has animal features (tail and ears) as well as other bits and pieces. This is just to let you know, as some apparently have issues with it. I hope you give him a chance, as I have him vary upon each scenario. :)
-I accept pretty much any species, though still let me know what you’re going to play as so we can make sure. Dwarfs/any character that’s shorter than 5’3, beefy characters like Minotaurs, or general muscular humans are a no for this post.
-Please have a visual reference or detailed description of your character. For descriptions, please include their backstory. Also, please send yours first! It really helps in me seeing if we're a match. :)
-Please be over eighteen, character wise and real life. I will not be writing with teens.
-Please be able to write at least a paragraph or more at norm and have proper grammar, as I’ll probably be writing a paragraph or more. I don’t reply to people who post one-liners or who are lazy with their replies. Of course, we’re here to have fun, but I want to have fun and continue to sharpen my grammar as well.
Now that’s out of the way, here are the scenarios I have in mind:
-SingeArtist (My Character) x Actor
-Celebrity x Celebrity
-Celebrity (My Character) x Fan
-Cafe Worker
-Lovers/Mated
-Sleepover (Non-Human/Mortal characters preferred, humanoids like vampires and werewolves are accepted.)
-Neighbors (Same as above.)
-Best Friends (Human or Humanoid/Non-Human)
-Rivals/Hate-Love Relationship
-Forbidden Love
-Rival Gangs (Mafia Style)
-Kidnapping (Can incorporate Military themes for the government kidnapping my character.)
-Overprotective and Obsessed Best Friend (Partner Only)
-Hybrid and Werewolf
-Hybrid and Pure-Blooded Demon
-Clone Gone Rogue (My character usually creates clones of himself to get small tasks done. However, this one made for fighting and protecting is dominant and obsessive over the original.)
-Trapped in a Cave
-Medieval Fantasy (Pretty much the Elder Scrolls series.)
-Caught Thief
-Thieves Guild, Partners.
-Zombie Apocalypse
-Blindfolded Date
-Black Market Auction
-Hypnosis
-Lost in a Maze/Pan’s Labrinth
Genres of Interest:
-Wizard of OZ (My character lives in a treehouse. :) Let's see where the tornado takes him!)
-Alice In Wonderland (Will involve humanized versions of the characters, with mine being "Alice".)
-Tokyo Ghoul (Both of our characters can be ghouls OR mine can be an investigator, meaning he won't be a demon hybrid, only ghoul or human.)
-Nier Automata (Android Version or Normal/Hybrid Self can be used!)
-Persona 3-5. 3 FES, 4/4 Golden, 5/5 Royal. (I'd really prefer the following characters to be paired with my OC Wolf: Minato Arisato, Tohru Adachi, Yu Narukami, Akira Kurusu, or Goro Akechi. But, if you really can't play as a canon character, I'll see if your original character works. I have commissioned Persona 5 art of my character with his persona!)
-Assassin's Creed (1-3, the OG.)
-Cyberpunk 2077 (New version of my character can be made.)
All non-genre scenarios can be combined (two-three combinations at max), but please feel free to suggest your own as well! (Limit is Doctor Who-Level Sci-Fi.)
When you message me, I’ll send you my character’s information and list of kinks, please do the same if it isn’t your intro~.
If you're looking to write smut, I only allow dominant characters. Now, I do want to also state that my character is not the type of submissive to seduce, beg, or just give in. At least for some scenarios. I’ll go into more detail in PM if you want more information. :)

2020.09.16 09:20 FeelingDesigner Childfree and the overwhelming amount of antinatalism on there.

Many people think that antinatalism is just the belief of wanting to lower the amount of children to sustain a more healthy population or just not wanting kids. But in reality this isn’t the case... When they do eventually visit an antinatalism sub or meet an antinatalist, they return pretty much traumatized.
Guys, I am not exaggerating if I write about how toxic this mindset is. So to spare you all the depression please read this post and remember it.
Antinatalists do not just want to be childfree, they want the human race to end... They think that life is suffering and that making children makes you a nazi for putting them through this suffering. Only way to end this? By ending the human race.
Many of these antinatalists will call kids “crotchgoblins” and parents “breeders”. In their mind it is a crime to have kids and humanity is horrible and should go extinct. If you observe them closely you will see that many have severe depression and or other mental challenges.
This mindset could be described as a form of the most toxic nihilism, followers of this mindset can be found in overwhelming numbers on childfree. A sub with more than a million members, easily one of the most biased and toxic subs on this platform.
Despite not wanting children and hating on humanity, many of these antinatalists adore pets. You would think they hate pets because of the suffering or the fact that many aren’t exactly ethical to keep... But the opposite is true! They are all fur parents with furry daughters and sons and many of them treat them like the kids they never had! Life can get lonely when your endgoal is to end the human race...
On childfree you will quickly notice this when scrolling through the comments. A LOT of comments talk about how much better their pets are than children and how these pets love them unconditionally. It’s not even that much of a sub for people who don’t want children but rather one were antinatalist types hate on humanity and children and glorify their pets.
Often in a very obsessive unhealthy way. You will find they straight out say that they would save pets over children or people. A very common thing there is also “my partner knows I would pick my pet over him any day”. It makes me question how these people are in relationships with this rather strange obsession over what is essentially still an animal.
Did you know that I actually don’t want children and am a huge fan of lowering the population to a more sustainable level? If you read my post about antinatalism you would have known this. I never felt like joining childfree because it was so hypocritical and toxic. I don’t hate kids... Just because you don’t want kids or a population to decrease to more sustainable levels, doesn’t mean we don’t like kids or humanity and find every individual fascinating.
Instead of focusing on the negative side and thinking that life is suffering and humanity should die me and mod cupcake both try to make a change. Every person has the ability to change and be happy, we are not defined forever. Being a human is a continuous process of self improvement. Not suffering, not something that you should be toxic about and hate to eventually solve nothing.
This sub is pro human and will always be a positive pro human environment that tries to change and improve on things. A sub that believes everyone has the capacity to become great as an individual. Everyone can come here and express their grief, everyone is welcome.
Hope all of you are having a great day! Feel free to share your opinion on toxic subs like childfree and antinatalists.

2020.09.16 01:39 LookinForKinkyLove 20[M4F]-Albany NY- Nerdy guy looking for an emotionally available switch

Hey guys! I’m a 20 year old student looking for someone I can connect with online first and then maybe in person(I’m Covid safe). I’m poly, so I’d don’t care if anyone is trans or non-binary :) Also not interested in open relationships — monogamy is important to me
Huge science fiction and fantasy nerd. If I’m not studying I’m playing games, hanging with friends (I’m 4/20 friendly), or building something! I like some anime but I’m really just a huge Disney and Studio Ghibli fan. Also like horror too!
I run the set shop at my colleges theatre and I’m a huge theatre nerd too!
I’m a pretty hapless romantic and I’ve recently been burned by a few bad relationships so I thought I’d try this. I wear my heart on my sleeve and try my best to be the best significant other I can be. I know just saying that isn’t enough to prove it, so I’d love to get to know you more.
I talk a LOT so if you like someone who can keep up in conversation hit me up :) a little clingy too haha.
I’m a switch, so I LOVE being a dom and I love being cared for too. Head pats are the way to my heart. I really like cuddling.
For kinks I love almost anythin! bdsm, pegging, pet play, butt stuff, and temperature play, and cutsie stuff are my favs, but yours will probably be my favorite too. I have two limits; cnc and poop stuff—I will literally 100% do anything else my partner wants, I’m easy going
Hit me up if interested, I’d love to talk :)

2020.09.15 19:08 Monetmonkey [Thank You] My RAoC September Thank Yous #1

My RAoC September Thank Yous #1 with close ups in the pics + bonus Kitty Photobomb go to:-
u/Halochanel - I got your Lou Paper Postcard! You are so awesome - I've always wanted one. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Hopefully you like my card for you as much! Can't wait to exchange Snailmail Platform/ penpaling_paula stuff too (ordered them, just waiting for it to arrive)!
u/twerptwo x 8! - 1. & 2. Thank you again for the handmade cards from your extremely talented friend. This time I asked for 2 Christmas ones so I could give one to another RAoCer so I have not put that one in the photo. 3. - 8. - Thank you for the bonus vintage Christmas postcards. Again, these aren't in shot because I have already made or plan to make use of them!
u/StephenFromReno88 - Thank you for the sunset over the mountains postcard. It's a glorious shot you took and great idea to turn it into a postcard. I stay happy by playing with stationery and being realistic about what I can manage. My favourite part about myself is my organisation skills.
u/madvix - I've got to admit when your card came through the post it did bring a smile seeing all the unhappy and crying emojis completely plastered across the back! It's a real contrast to the pretty front side and I like the Scottish stamp.
u/sillygirlblue - The sea and sky are such beautiful shades of blue in your Bosphorus postcard and that is one part of Turkey I didn't visit so it's nice to see. Thank you so much.
u/jennybead - Thank you so much for the Chinese zodiac poster, the Chinese New Year stickers and Flat card. I had actually forgotten about this coming to me so it was a nice surprise as I wasn't expecting so many bits!
u/kmeck - kmeck, this card has my absolute heart! You completely nailed it from the colours, the stickers on the envelope as well as the ones you included inside for me, right down to the envelope inlay and the wax seal which arrived completely intact. Papyrus cards are my favourite and I was gutted when I found out they were closing down. They're so hard to get hold of outside the US now so I'm delighted!
u/Cayt98 - Thank you for the old school Disney era postcard of Fantasia, especially for finding one which has a lot of my favourite colours in!
u/ImOkReally - Thank you for the handmade Love card and enclosed stickers. It's really hard to tell that the card was handmade, the layering is so precise and I love the geometric background pattern.
u/shayoy - Thank you for your watercolour toned card. Awesome to meet another big Marvel fan. I love the wax seal too, it just about survived the machine, small flattening but the design is still clear.
u/Amrache - Thanks for the seal postcard with matching stamp, cancellation mark and wax seal. Your G rated story is a total cop out though!
u/TheFeistyFox - Thank you for the handmade Moomin card. I really like how you used the tissue paper on the front and how you double strip washi and put a sticker over it.
u/ExcessiveCharm - Thank you for the cute Totoro postcard. It might not be a Catbus but it's still great and my first one I have received. I'm glad that you had a good mental health day.
u/kinkyzilly3018 - Thank you for the Swan postcard. I love the colour of the background and the information it gives you on the back as well as the way you have decorated it and wrote with different coloured inks.
u/Mareepharos - I had such a laugh receiving your Cat Yoga postcard. I love that it gives you a bit of information about the pose on the back and relates it to Cats! I have frequently done the Swinging Palm Tree pose myself!
u/malozing_running - thank you for the 2020 Postcard Revolution postcard you sent for World Postcard Day. I like the artists aesthetic as well as the idea behind it.
u/reddituserkoot - Thank you for the hot air balloon watercolor postcard you sent. Did you handmake this? There's so much to love; I love that it's such a simple but effective idea, I love that you offered cards out to the mods and I love the Mark Twain quote.
u/tashsmash x 3 - OMIGOSH! Where do I even start? 1. First off, I love the Hula & Flora card you chose. I read the back and checked out their website, they have some lovely stuff. I love getting international cards from local or national artists. 2. & 3. Secondly I totally cried out loud when I saw the extra two Star Wars postcards you enclosed! Duchess Satine is one of my favourite characters and I love that you picked her sister as one of them and I'm a real fan of the Force Family storyline so Daughter is 👌🏼.
u/nutriyum - I love the postcard of Jaime Lannister in the style of a playing card! Especially along with the matching Jon Snow stamp! I like the way you decorated the envelope with the sticker and washi on the front, that's a great décor style and I like the stamps used. Thanks!
u/sigidies - Thank you for the Moose postcard. I love the anime stamp and the fact that you mention miso soup and he's holding chopsticks. I'd never considered writing sideways like that before!
u/babyraspberry x2 - 1. Thank you for the colourful Tiger postcard and facts. It suits well following my recent trip to The Big Cat Sanctuary. Your handwriting is so neat, it's almost like print. I love the way you stuck the stickers to the postcard to be detachable. Thank you also for the Herman Melville quote and challenge sheet. I love the artwork. 2. Thank you also for the Lego postcard I received 3 posting days later! I love the backpack sticker you included and thanks for sharing the story of how you met your husband.
u/Ecstatic-Safe - Thanks for the Crane Postcard. It's worrying that infection rates are increasing, please stay safe! You sound a little down, I've sent you a postcard to add to your collection that will hopefully bring a smile 🙂
u/soxgal - Thanks for the cute little Mickey Mouse card and stickers. I hope you get through your stockpile soon so that your embargo will be lifted!
u/Wyrmfang - As soon as I saw the gold envelope on my doormat I knew it was your doodle postcard! I've been wanting a Japanese woodblock style one so I was really excited. Isn't scotch tape great? Because of the way you sealed it, I could open the envelope and it's completely undamaged. The V&A is my favourite museum so you really nailed it!
u/addyorable - Your Foro Romano Postcard has arrived! So looks like it's taking 6 to 7 weeks but it is getting here! Your handwriting is beautiful and I love how the post card also has a picture of the Spanish steps in the background on the writing side as well. I have a photo of my partner leaning over the wall that looks out over the Foro Romano, the postcard brings back memories of that trip. I had no idea where I was going until we were on the plane! Still my favourite with-partner holiday.
u/IK1452009 - Thanks for the George Town Street art postcard. It took a bit of detective work because the cancellation stamp was right over your address and there was no name or username but I worked out this was from you. I love cats and Bruce Lee so the street art was very apt. It arrived the same time as another card from your country that was posted 5 days earlier, so it seems they are sending in batches but at least post is coming now! Yay!

2020.09.15 12:40 Mellowix Pokemon Sword and Shield - Crown Tundra Prediction

To cut to the chase - I think Peony could turn out to be Rose's father and the former Chairmen. After his corruption was threatened to be exposed, he ran away to the remote wildness.
But not to get ahead of myself, let's rewind to look at the evidence.
Mustard:
At the end of Isle of Amour, Mustard is quoted as saying:
"I hope you'll come by and have more battles with me from time to time. It'll make us both stronger. Just so we're ready when the time comes...Heh heh! Oh, don't worry! You'll find out what I'm talking about eventually!"
This is most likely alluding to him returning in the Crown Tundra. By the sounds of it, Mustard is planning to battle someone or something when he arrives.
So why Mustard would travel to the Crown Tundra? One of the possibilities, is a preexisting relationship with a Tundra character. So who better than the person who's been at the centre of its marketing campaign? Both Mustard and Peony take the similar roles in their respective DLCs, being senior experts on their local areas and being the main guide to the player.
Mustard's Rare League card states:
"This photo was taken about 50 years ago, when Mustard defeated the Fairy-type Gym Leader and went on to become Champion. He reigned undefeated until he lost his partner Pokémon. After this, his losses started to mount. He remained popular even after losing the mantle of Champion, but decided to retire after the league chairman at that time asked him to win in a rigged match.
If this was a throw-away tidbit, they could've of had his partner Pokémon dying and nothing else. But adding this mystery character of the former chairmen, seems executive, unless Game Freak is planning to do more with it.
The reason I say this former Chairmen could be Rose's father, is due to Peony's design having a family resemblance. Specially, with his wrinkled eyes and grey hair, makes him seem too old to be a brother. Some fans have argued their skin tones are too different, but this can be easily countered, if Rose's mother was lighter skinned.
Is Peony old enough to be the former Chairmen?:
League Card: Mustard is the former Fighting-type Gym Leader and is regarded as one of the strongest Champions in Galar's history—reigning undefeated for 18 years."
Rare League Card: "This photo was taken about 50 years ago, when Mustard defeated the Fairy-type Gym Leader and went on to become Champion."
At the youngest, Mustard would be 60 years old, since the Trainer starting age is 10 years old. Though considering he was the fighting Gym leader, he probably sent serval years at that. Either way, an estimate of Mustard's age is between 60-75.
When the former Chairmen gave the offer, Mustard had lost his 18-year-long Champion title; therefore making it 32 years ago or under. Judging by appearances, Peony seems to be in his 50s or 60s. This would fit into the timeline, as Peony could both be the Chairmen and Rose's father by his late 20s or early 30s. This may be young to run a national sporting event, however this is the Pokemon world we've taking about, where Leon became Champion at 10.
Rose and Peony similarities:
  1. They're both directly named after flowers.
  2. They're both are interested in studying Legendary Pokemon. For Peony, it's the Galar Forms and Calyrex, while Rose had Eternatus.
  3. This is more subjective, though those two have somewhat similar personalities. In the short summery from the Pokemon Website, Peony is described as:
Listening isn’t his strongest suit, and his bold behavior draws plenty of attention. But he has a kind side and plenty of affection for his daughter.
Rose's inability to listen lead to the Eternatus disaster, so perhaps he gained that trait from his poor influence of a father.
In his official artwork and animations, Peony has a clenched fist and cheesy grin. All those traits combined: Being confident, bad listener and bold attention seeker - It's the kind of personality you could imagine a corrupt Chairmen having. Somebody who's shy wouldn't be capable of being the face of a Sport Championship.
Specifics:
I can't gather details about Rose and Peony's potential dynamic, on whether they're on good or bad terms. If their connection is confirmed, then Rose would have a sister. (She hasn't appeared in a trailer yet.) This unknown sibling travels around with their protective father, while Rose is busy with his own life, never mentioning his family. This hints towards negative undertones to Peony's and Rose's relationship, either the father has some favouritism or the son choose to distance himself.
According to Oleana in the Sword and Shield Postgame:
Mr. Rose... A long time ago he used to work in a coal mine, you know.
Some fans may argue it contributes this whole theory, since Rose became Chairmen as a self-made man and not through his father. Though I'd like to say, this isn't guaranteed to be nepotism. Our knowledge on Rose's backstory is limited; him being a coal miner is literally everything we have. For all we know, Peony might have been long gone and had nothing to do with his son's promotion, making the two events separate.
