There’s something that annoys me.

And that’s “assigning” a sexuality to a character. It doesn’t matter at the end of the day. Most anime characters are fourteen or younger. It doesn’t matter if they’re gay, straight, bisexual, transsexual, asexual, pansexual, robotsexual…you get the point. It’s usually not relevant to the story. At the end of the day, I don’t care if Mami Tomoe was asexual or a lesbian. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter. I watch anime to enjoy it…not to debate the sexuality of the characters I like. Unless it’s literally the exploration and focus of the show, I honestly can’t say I care. I’m not the least bit disappointed when I find out a character is straight because I literally just don’t care.

I do make jokes that Ryu Yamada is gay for Miyamura, but I literally don’t mean it. I don’t care. I already know what happens since I accidentally cheated.

The point is that it doesn’t matter. A character can like what they want. Their own gender or the opposite. In only really matters in romance anime, tbh. Yuri and yaoi, we just know that the characters are gay because that’s the market. And in straight romance, the characters are straight. But again, I really don’t care. I watch anime to enjoy it.

Yes, I do say “GAY” because I’m pretty uncomfortable with straight romance. And I don’t really mind yuri undertones, either, but I just can’t stand all this sexuality debates for little girls and little boys. I know I called Binan Kouku “gay magical boy show” because I felt like it, but I never sat and debated who in the show was whatever sexuality they were.

Yes, I ship characters, too. But shipping is just what everyone does. Ships aren’t always canon, and I have my personal otps, but that doesn’t mean I think my otps are going to happen. They’re just for fun. My opinions are no less meaningful than another’s. At the end of the day, I’m just another weeb who likes anime.

Unless it’s literally confirmed in the show what their sexuality is, then it really just doesn’t matter.

I’ve come out as lesbian myself, and I don’t flaunt it, but recently I’ve been identifying as genderless, but I still like girls. But this has nothing to do with this post. I’m going through a lot of identity issues right now, but it’s not like I don’t know how to sort myself out.

I feel like the “insert character here is gay!” “Insert character here is bi1” Will literally always be an argument. I guess I have no right to complain, but it’s just a pet peeve of mine. Okay. I’m sorry. I’ll stop now. I’m almost into tl;dr rant mode. …I guess I saw this day coming at this point, but who can blame me? I’m just a person on the internet trying to reach out to people about the anime I like.

Anyway, that’s pretty much it. I’ll go.

Explaining EOE (End of Eva)

Copied from my MAL post.

Okay. I can explain. Rei was tired of listening to Gendo and merged with Lilith to demonstrate this. Causing the Third Impact, which thus destroyed the world, but eventually people did reconstruct. The only two that were left were Shinji and Asuka. I’m pretty sure Shinji still had lingering frustration with her, so he tried to strangle her. Asuka said “disgusting” because she was disgusted by the fact that Shinji tried killing her. The part with the real world sequence is supposed to be a world where Shinji doesn’t exist. And Shinji is completely traumatized by having to kill Kaworu, so why would he want to pilot the thing that killed the only person who remotely gave two shits about him?

Honestly, I don’t find it that hard to understand. The animation gave me a headache, though. Now, Revolutionary Girl Utena… which had the most confusing movie ever, that I had a hard time understanding.

And of course, there’s another anime that’s even worse with “the fuck did I just watch?”

Gantz.

All of it.

And, Humanity Has Declined. The only anime that drove me to tears because I couldn’t understand a freaking thing. But Evangelion was child’s play. I understood the whole thing without summaries. Yeah.

Kagerou Project, though, I won’t lie about, is probably the most complicated. Time is a trick thing to mess with. You’ve got to realize, there’s a lot of time resets in Kagepro. If you can grasp the entire story, you’re too good. It took me at least until the anime to understand everything. Before (my first try) the manga, I didn’t get it at all. So, it took a lot of summaries for that one, lmao.

On another note, non anime related…if you can fully understand Homestuck, you sir, are amazing. I can’t even grasp it without DESCRIPTIONS!

But yeah, I understand Neon Genesis Evangelion as well as the End of Eva. It’s not as complicated as you make it out to be. Then again, I have serotonin deficiency. Partially, I am “mentally ill.” So, I guess the two understand one another. But weirdness from Utena is too hard.

Yuri Kuma took a long time, too, js.

But yeah.

Gantz.

Gantz for the most fucked up anime of all mankind. I just sat through four episodes. My face was like this: @_@

…………………….

Why in god’s name would I pick this? Watch it dubbed if you do. I won’t say it’s bad. I think the plot is interesting, or tries to be.

But try to avoid it, if necessary.
