What breeding for a shiny Pokémon feels like, in case you were curious.
why cant fuckin weebs just accept that klk is fanservice like fuck goddamnit you can enjoy it and still admit it it’s kind of gross. you’re allowed to do that. people don’t care as long as you arent pretending ryuuko’s titties out has goddamn biblical meaning
i’ve only seen like 3-4 episodes of klk but
i waas under the impression the whole thing was about not being ashamed and the unavoidable male gaze and whatnot? cuz like the last thing I saw wwas a big fight between the main girls and ryuuko is all like ashamed and it’s fucking up her fighting and the other girl is like why the fuck are you ashamed and ryuuko is like boohoo boobies and the other girl is like this shit gives you the power you want never be ashamed of it or yourself and ryuuko is like yes you are right i should not be concerned with others and what they feel when they look at me because the only feelings that matter are my own and then she proceeds to kick some serious fucking ass
so i’ve only seen three episodes but i thought it was supposed to be more than fanservice?
If you think about that though who does that benefit?
In reality it’s a terrible message to give to girls…
Essentially the message the show tries to paint in episode 3 is that girls should not feel uncomfortable about the “unavoidable male gaze” and should just put up with it.
Nothing about that is empowering to women. It completely caters to men. The show never says that men should basically stop oogling Ryuko’s body or stop catcalling her. The show only states that she should put up with it and just get over it. Heck almost every episode has the mankanshoku father and brother sexually harassing Ryuko and this is painted as not a big deal and used for ‘comedic’ purposes.
If the message was actually “don’t be ashamed about yourself or don’t be ashamed about what you choose to wear” that would be totally fine. But it’s not that at all. Heck Ryuko doesn’t even want to wear her Kamui at first and doesn’t want to to dress like that. The show essentially forces it on her and then blames her for not putting up with it.
I mean yeah in later episodes she’s fine with it but it’s all just super gross how it’s handled and anyone that argues that there is a deeper message of girl empowerment has no idea what they are talking about.
Really it’s all fanservice for fanservice sake. Any deeper message that they tried to get across just made that even more gross. It’s essentially telling girls to put up with the fanservice that guys like even if it makes girls uncomfortable.
And yeah they give some fanservice for straight girls too. Guys get mostly naked on the show a lot. But the difference is that they all do so of their own free will because it’s what they want to do. We watch as Ryuko is uncomfortable with things and is essentially just forced to put up with it. She has no agency; and that’s the real difference and problem.
I also won’t get into the fact that the magical girl genre as a whole has been hijacked to the point where almost every magical girl anime nowadays has a target demographic of boys-young men and not girls any more.
So yeah, as OP said “why cant fuckin weebs just accept that klk is fanservice like fuck goddamnit you can enjoy it and still admit it it’s kind of gross.”
- call you names
- tell you weird and personal details about myself
- say “I NEED TO PEE” instead of just brb
- type in caps a lot.
If i’m extra comfortable with you I’ll do all that and:
- talk casually about porn and really perverted thoughts
- share funny photos from my tumblr dash
- actually tell you when i’m upset
- try to make conversation with you
- just generally act really silly when I’m in a good mood
- tell you jokes even if they’re bad
the little asshole even eats their french fries, is there no end to his torment
Ready for the cold, and the season’s first snowball!
