Finally got around to watching TFA episode 25 in English.
Crying. I think I needed another, like, ten years.
I’m so happy my feel inducing sobby shipwreck of a favorite scene didn’t get destroyed, I was so worried. I like how they did it, even if they changed the dialogue a tad. Paul Dobson you are fab, thank you-you brilliant motherfucker for actually making it believable.
my poor lil baboon baaaaaaaby ;_;
Let’s be honest here, bro was just mad his dick looked like a burnt hot dog.
and suddenly an avalanche of naraku feels
no one understands how much I looOoooove his character
I just want to bake him cookies and drink boxed wine with him and talk about how girls are icky and I want to knit him a little tiny baby sweater so he can wear it and not ever be cold.
like you poor miserable little emo kid, that is so 2006, hide in my pocket I will keep you safe from the haters
Dear Inuyasha fandom
what the fuck is wrong with you?
What if you took a shot every time one of the protagonists said this?
Naraku is so unaffected by death threats, it’s actually ridiculous.
But, we all know he writes about it in his diary when no one’s watching.
“Conflict” by ~Desefiar on Deviant Art
Incredibly beautiful, I love the style.
I think it captures a really lonely side of Naraku, his character had to be conflicted at some point in the story. His true wish was (
always) for Kikyo to return ‘his’ feelings, to have her heart to call his own. But he was also an incredibly twisted man who lusted for nothing but power, which would easily be granted by tainting the shikon jewel.
Anonymous asked: Were you more upset about KIkyo's death, or Naraku's?
Hmmmm. Well, I was very, very sad when Kikyo died. She’s always been my favorite character. Actually, pretty much my favorite fictional character of all time. Even though I feel it was mildly overdramatic, I was glad she got an absolutely beautiful death, her character deserved it in my eyes. I think I would’ve mourned for her character more, but her death was unavoidable. We saw it coming from the very beginning.
I can honestly say I was more upset at Naraku’s death. Not only did it mean the death of a character I loooove and relate to, but the end of a series I’ve loved since I was 11. A lot of people took the whole “I wanted Kikyo’s heart” thing as a surprise, but c’mon? I thought that was very touching; that this big badass who hates the world just wanted some love (and some miko ass). Also, I get major NarKik feels because when he says that his true wish was for Kikyo’s heart, he must’ve known the shikon jewel wouldn’t grant it. He must’ve wished for it at one point or another in the series to know that his wish would be denied???
Naraku’s last scenes showed a different side of him. Not just in an emotional way. It showed that he was really willing to fight his enemies. Even if he had just used pawns before, it showed that he was willing to risk his life after all. The last battle between Naraku and Inuyasha’s group was one of the only times the man soiled his own hands.
His final scenes showed him spiteful and vindictive, something we always knew he was, but in a different way. Naraku allowed the shikon jewel to carry out its “wish” through him because his soul held so much hate towards Inuyasha and Kagome. Even though Naraku was very proud, very cocky, he allowed himself to be used.
Up until his last moments, Naraku hated the world and part of himself. That’s weak, that’s human, that’s easy to relate to. Naraku literally went out of his way to destroy Kaede’s village because that’s what connected him to his beginnings. He wanted his “past” to die with him. In a weird sort of way, I feel like those actions were conducted by feelings of not only hate, but embarrassment.
I’m really happy that Takahashi gave emotion to Naraku’s death. I’m glad she didn’t just kill him off without him having one last bite. Naraku’s death makes me very emotional, because while watching it you see his mistakes and see his pride and you just want to adsgadfghhhhahhhchb. A part of me wanted Naraku to liv, but his death was unavoidable as well for Inuyasha and the others to continue on with their lives.
