taotrooper: It's a 15 year old midget smirking at you (Edward / smirk)

Rite, I need icons of these things

SO, LEGEND OF KORRA! I'll get this one first so you can skip the spoilers and read the other nonsense if you want.

The feeling is quite different to ATLA, but I'm digging it. Probably not in the same way than the first series, but the scenery porn and the characters and the gorgeous animation are all amazing. I like almost everyone so far.

I really like Korra. Even if she's Brash Action Grrl with an attitude, she has a lot of heart and even naivety. And it's interesting that her sheltered life and her own nature brought her a privileged mentality that's criticized by revolutionary characters. There's a lot of stupid whining about it (including people saying she sounds white, WTF there are more ways to be privileged than skin colors -especially in a Magical POC Land!-), but I liked that she was giving this character flaw. I'm looking forward to see how this will play out, if she will check her privilege, and if Amon has a more extreme approach than the street protesters. But enough about the unfunny business! She's fun, she's dorky sometimes, she's passionately stubborn... you know, in pure Water Tribe fashion.

Besides Korra, I can't decide who I like better, if Tenzin or Bolin. They're both awesome and an infinite supply of amazing faces. It's funny because in the rpevious show, my favorites were also a brash prodigy girl (Toph), a comedy lady's men bro (Sokka), and a mentor figure adult man (Iroh). But of course, they're also very different, I just mean the role. I understand why people want to see Zuko and Sokka reflected in the brothers, but after we met them I'm not seeing it at all. Sokka was goofier and more analytical, while Zuko had A Lot of Feelings and can't keep a poker face for five minutes. So all the fangirls going "OMG MAKO IS MY FAVORITE JUST LIKE ZUKO OMG I LOVE BROODING FIREBENDER HOTTIES" are really confusing me. The funnier part is how I see more of Toph (in spirit) in Korra than Katara, so I wonder if Zutarians who shipped Makorra before this episode will notice that. Hell, if someone has some of Katara's personality, that's Tenzin! But let's not bring his mother into this, LOL.

In compulsive buying news, I have acquired Kid Icarus: Uprising. I've only played the first level a few times because I think my consoles give me the flu as soon as I touch them :[ I watched the anime clips and dude, they're really amping the Palutena-is-moe and it's not just SHAFT. So as annoying as the VAs are, I like her and Pit so far. They're big dorks. About the gameplay, it's confusing at first but maybe I'll get the hang of it. I'm feeling some anxiety over weapon fusion like I always have when I have to fuse shit up in games (I didn't dare to screw with Personas for half of my first P4 playthrough)

I don't really get why the OMG MUST GET THEM ALL around the AR cards. Is it a collector TCG thing or do they actually affect the game experience in a relevant way? Honest question here.

I also bought Percy Jackson: The Demigod Files which isn't that interesting besides the short stories. I already had html versions of them, but it's Festus' intro and I have a lot of feelings over a bronze mecha dragon. Shuddup.

I couldn't find the Moribito books in Spanish and I've been looking for them for months. In the end I bought them off Amazon.es. Last copy they had. Dammit, I'm in no economical shape to spend all this money.

KORRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! Es todo tan amazing ya no puedo en serio. TODO ES HERMOSO, tanto la escenografía, como dices y la música y Korra es amazing y badass y tan adorkable y sí, aún tiene mucho que aprender, pero se esfuerza, aunque igual es terca e impulsiva pero, guh. Ya la amo. Y Tenzin tan. tan él XD Los momentos en que Korra lo saca de quicio son tan priceless XD Y SUS HIJOS AAAA los adoro, igual a su esposa que sólo quiere un hijo non-bender for once XDDDD

Mako y Bolin me agradan bastante ya, a Bolin ya lo amo en realidad, es tan lindo y tierno y silly y sus interacciones con Korra me divirtieron bastante. Ya quiero ver más de Lin también gosh, necesito más episodios.

AMO TODO ALREADY se ve que realmente va a ser increíble aaaa ♥

El cuarto es el vencido, señora ;A; No le haga caso a la suegra.

Aún no me cae del todo Mako (es demasiado cara de :||||| por ahora), pero no me preocupa mucho. Sokka tampoco me cayó bien en su primer episodio, y Zuko es un gusto adquirido, y los acabé amando. Sólo ha pasado un episodio.

Needs moar Lin siendo una aguafiestas (metalfiestas?) y haciendo gestos LOLazos.

BELIEVE DB!1 (aunque por ahí en tumblr había un comentario que cada hijo le sale más random que el anterior XDD)

Yeah, aún es muy pronto--iba a decir que tienen bastante por delante pero cuántos episodios va a tener la serie, se sabe? :O

....metalfiestas ftw omg XDDD YESSSSSSS quiero verla siendo badass igual *^*

Dios, espero que no XD El mundo no podría soportar un nené más random (e igual podría ser un kid random que no sea airbender! más manejable!)

No he averiguado porque cada vez que veo, más episodios tiene o algo.

El balance en la fuerza!!!

Mientras más episodios mejor *-* Quedé felizmente sorprendida con lo de 'Book one' *^*

Ah, y ya vi P4A. En serio es un único episodio para pelear contra el douchebag y rematar los cabos? Algo me dice que van a tener que cortar el True Ending y hacer sólo el normal, sob. No cabe el subplot de "can I touch your handdddddddddd~" en medio episodio o menos.

Teddie, tu cute ;______;

Sooob ;_; Si tan sólo fueran 26 en lugar de 25, pero ya veremos cómo hacen. Juro que. quiero ir y comprarme una PS(2? /perdida) y conseguirme el juego para jugarlo porque. Gosh babies los quiero en mi vida.

SUS CARITAS ;_; SUS OJOTES. ESOS OJOTES DEBERÍAN SER ILEGALES. TEDDIE. Teddie y nanako agradeciéndole, gooosh ;_;

PS2, sí. O te puedes comprar una Vita si el port extendido que están haciendo sale en América (puto ATLUS).

Encontré este Let's Play que es texto y fotos o/

La nueva PSP. Bastards, yo no quiero comprar el mismo juego dos veces y una consola nuevaaaaaaaaa! (conseguir una PS2 barata sería fácil, pero conseguir el juego/que tenga seeders ya es más peludo)

Anyway, ojotes.

Ooooh. Cómo se nota que yo no sé nada de nada de eso XD Pero igual iré pokeando ya que logre vencer mi flojera para ir a pokear, coff.

I'm not seeing it either, and I'm actually really glad! I like the characters are different enough, otherwise I'd keep comparing them.

And yes, you know I agree with you lots and lots =D I can't wait to see where this show goes.

If anything, I applaud Bryke for not making them clones of a previous character! Too bad that the stupidest section of the fandom haven't noticed (good to know that incapability to read can also translate to visual media!)

Ahaha, I'm trying to stay sooooo far away from that fandom. It was wanky before the show even started.

No fue tan malo como imaginas, de hecho. Sólo fue scrollear posts de fangirls lujuriosas. PERO DALES TIEMPO >.> Espero que la línea de un trailer de "You like me, don't you" o algo así sea trolling fuera de contexto como el "Whoops..." de este episodio que no fue durante esa escena. DELICIOSAS LÁGRIMAS.
