what did jontron do?
he used the word “retarded” (which is no longer an acceptable term to describe anyone with intellectual disabilities) as a negative word to describe a game console and a fan asked him politely over twitter not to do that, which, you know, is a reasonable request, seeing as it’s incredibly fucking offensive:
but jontron, being the empathetically stunted and ethically bankrupt gamer beardo we all knew in our heart of hearts that he was, blew up the entire thing, tried cracking jokes that were shitty even if you didn’t care about the slur, and generally acted like a huge asshat about it. Neil Cicierga called Jon out on twitter, telling him he was being a huge douchecanoe, and in response Jon just gushed at Neil, telling him he loved his work etc. completely ignoring the point at hand.
and then, just when you thought that you could pick up the shambles that remain of your loving devotion to Jontron’s quirky chubby gamer antics and reassemble some form of acceptance and tolerance for him as a person, he went on to call out Tim Schafer, who linked a video about violence against female gamers, and started attacking Tim about how men are depicted just as poorly as women are, exposing his final form to his fans: a whiny, self-important holier-than-thou MRA fucktruck whose only purpose in life is to prove everyone wrong about everything that isn’t about white male neckbeards.
and lo, built on nothing but piggybacking on Egoraptor’s success and cheetos dust, Jontron’s sprawling empire begins to crumble and collapse beneath him. former fans look on, horrified. i sit back and sip on a big mug of “i told you so.”
Imagine your OTP stuck in an elevator after they’ve had a fight.
my favorite thing about writing is coming up with an entire storyline and characters and setting in my head and not writing it down
They corrected many scenes in the bluray version of episode 21, lots of redraws of ugly Satsuki, Mako, Ira and Aikuro faces. I think they reanimated even more than in episode 16 and I’m very happy about it because I love episode 21 with Junketsu Ryuko but always found it a pain to watch because the art was just SO UGLY, especially Satsuki looked so wrong in most of the scenes. Now I can enjoy this episode even more!
Someone needs to make a full comparison for this episode, I’ve probably missed a lot because I only looked at scenes I thought were worth a correction and in almost every case I wasn’t disappointed.
TV version left, BD version right.
JunketsuRyuuko redraws were pretty good; they make her look much wilder and menacing, there was something off about her in the TV version:
