don’t tag anyone in California in the ALS challenge

endymionz:

UNLESS YOU KNOW that they can afford to donate the $100.

We are in the middle of a HUGE drought and water/energy bills are expected to spike in the next couple of months. If you’re still going to do it, stand over some plants that you would have watered anyway.

SUPPORT THE ALS CAUSE but do not support wasting water in the middle of a drought that’s only getting worse.

kurokutetsu  asked
Shini and I followed your advice and picked up the knb manga from where the Yosen match ended and we binge read it together. We finished last week and I'm glad we finished before the match ended and I feel completely satisfied with how things ended up. It's weird to me that people are bitter because I think Seirin's message, while cliche, is inspirational, at least to me. Really I just came here to thank you again for the tip on picking up the manga because I've enjoyed it so much.

kurokobun:

Hey, there dear! I am very glad you guys enjoyed the manga as much as I have! And yes, thank you! The thing about sports anime is that it tends to inspire you a lot as an underdog yourself. Some sad fucks calling themselves “realistic” would tell you that message is wrong, because it gives you false expectations, but I don’t fucking think so. I think sports anime that follows the underdogs gives us hope, and with a never withering hope there is a higher chance of succeeding because it still remains even after you get knocked down over and over again.

Seirin’s message is the best of the entire series. Now I understand people tend to favor the GoM peeps, God knows I love them all to death myself (with the exception of Akashi whom I’m fairly neutral to) so I get it, but being bitter fucks about Rakuzan losing when, in fact, Seirin clearly deserved it, and it served to make both Kuroko and Kyoshi (as well as everyone else but you get why I choose to mention them specifically) so, incredibly happy— well, I don’t get their sad lives, but let ‘em live it while I’m here being so happy for my babies and especially Kyoshi-senpai who wanted this more than anything.

This was their only chance to win. The next years will be even harder and they will, most likely, taste defeat multiple times, but this time they deserved it. This time no one can come and say they weren’t the ones who wanted to win the most. Unless you’re ignorant as hell.

So yes, I’m very glad you guys look at it with the same eyes as I do! *THROWS CONFETTI AT YOUR PRETTY FACES*

Okay since everyone is giving their opinions I will also give mine. Again this is my opinions aka you can like it or dislike it.

At first, there are people interviewing Fujimaki about who would he like to win in the finals. Fujimaki said it right away that he wanted Seirin to win BUT he still haven’t figure out how they were going to beat Akashi. Yeah, to be honest Akashi was pretty much overpowered that even Fujimaki had a hard time trying to figure out how to make him lose. This confirms that Fujimaki hinted since LONG ago that he intended for Seirin to win. I think that the reason it was dragged out was because he made Rakuzan too powerful for him to finish it in the length of normal matches. (Trust me, when you read something like Naruto, you get used to dragging on)

Unrealistic? Well, this is a basketball series about kids that could play basketball as intense or even more intense than full grown adults in NBA and with crazy technique like Midorima’s full court range, Akashi’s emperor eye, Aomine and Kagami’s zone and many others. It’s wasn’t going to be realistic. 

Seirin’s Win in unnecessary? Maybe. So what if they lose? What message would they get? Or more, what message would the audience get. Seirin was intended to be portrayed as the underdog that finally reach the top by determination, dedication and teamwork. Seirin isn’t just about teamwork but achieving things through teamwork and staying true to yourself. That was the message of Seirin. 

So what if Rakuzan won? They were the school with the most winning titles in the tournament. They got teams of like great athletes and resources and everything. It was just like, school with the best players, best coaches and facilities won because they got every thing in their power to make best players. But teamwork and playing individually is a different thing that was the point of the WHOLE manga. 

I saw a lot of argument which said that ’Kuroko didn’t need to win since he already showed that he already achieved the goal of showing how his basketball was right!’ which I felt very weird about it. His teamwork with Seirin didn’t show that his basketball was right it just brought back the Oreshi because Bokushi couldn’t win. Did you see Oreshi’s reaction when Kagami use the zone with synchronization moves with Seirin? He was still had that attitude towards winning even if it was down toned from the Bokushi persona (a very scary one if you asked me). He said that Seirin would never won against Rakuzan. Rakuzan winning would even boost this winning persona that Rakuzan has from the beginning.

The the last thing about making Seirin winning was, I think, something that Fujimaki wanted to do because it felt right. Please remember that Fujimaki went through a hard time while doing this manga. He received heavy criticism for his art during the beginning of the series, death threats, his KNB merchandised were poisoned by the same person who send him death threats and people were just afraid of buying anything KNB related. He fought it through and not giving up the series. KNB was his FIRST official series after he ranked 12th the Shonen Jump Rookie Award and got a space for his debut KNB oneshot in the magazine. If anything, Seirin reflects Fujimaki’s journey as an unknown to the top.

Aside from all of that. I think Kuroko deserves a closure with his GoM friends. Kiyoshi deserve to his final glory before he had to go to surgery and won’t be able to play for a long fucking time so that he would recover without having any regret (the biggest factor for me I think). Koganei found a sport that he decided that he would stick to after changed so many times. Hyuuga found his resolve as a captain. Kagami grew up so much from the first chapter I am not even going to write how because it would be so fucking long and I prefer to make a separate post. The growth that the characters of Seirin had deserve some rewards. 

It’s not like Seirin never lose, the first year they formed the lose. They losed again in the Inter High. Hell, they even lose again against Shutoku in the practice matches like all three times. Tell me when was the last time Akashi lost? They kinda earn this win in my opinion.

So yeah, that’s all for now I think. Again, if this is not clear: this is my opinions aka you can like it or dislike it.

bonbonbunny:

This slipped completely under my notice - this upcoming Fall anime season is bringing us a new otome game-turned-anime! :D

Bonjour Koiaji Patisserie will be airing in October!  The character designs are from Utako Yukihiro, creator of Makai Ouji as well as the artist for the Uta no Prince-sama manga adaptations.

The heroine’s voice actress hasn’t been announced, but the boys are Tetsuya Kakihara, Kaito Ishikawa, Ryouhei Kimura and Hikaru Midorikawa~

I am definitely looking forward to a cute Fall anime about sweets and cute boys!!
