do you think at this point people in the scooby-doo tag just see me coming like
if anyone ever starts thinking shaggy and fred aren’t friends remember the time shaggy nearly crashed the mystery machine just to compliment fred on his guitar skills
terra haters more like
every time you defend terra from people who can’t handle the fact she’s a great character i just think of this gif
remember when i actually used my nigel blog wow what a misty distant past
i remember it exists every now and again but each time i go back i feel so bad for ditching for a full month that i ditch for another month. i still love it so i don’t want to declare it dead and move on but i’m also really not giving it ample attention
anyway have an angry nigel i drew in three minutes
i just splashed soda in my eye by accident when i tilted the can wrong and you can imagine how much that would hurt but
i opened my eye again like “okay… it’s over… i cried it out it’s okay let’s see if there’s any damage” and my vision was COMPLETELY BLURRY so my first reaction was OH JESUS ALMIGHTY I’VE DESTROYED MY EYE WHAT DO I DO CAN IT BE FIXED I’LL BE BLIND FOREVER WHY DID I OPEN THIS CAN OF SODA THIS IS ONE TO TELL THE GRANDKIDS
and then i remembered no that eye is usually blurry and is in fact the reason i have a pair of two-year-old prescription glasses sitting on my nightstand
He was going to explain the charity event in more depth and at least take his tunic off first, but his sister was a bit too eager with the bucket of ice water. It’s okay, though, everyone already knows what it’s all about. Robin explained it pretty well and Jericho would just have to sign the whole thing anyway.
Oh well. He might be soaking and freezing and in a fierce mental debate over exactly how boundless his affection for his sister is, but, as Rose puts it: “It’s fine. Joey loves this kind of charity crap.”
I never understood that mentality honestly, WHY do people think everything would look better as an anime? it wouldn’t. the characters might have more detail, but that also means they’d be less animated because budget. it wouldn’t be the same.
i think it’s because they want “prettier” art and don’t actually think about the quality of the animation; i’m sure there are a bunch of casual adventure time fans who wouldn’t mind finn’s movements being a bit jerkier if that meant he was blessed with an actual nose and limb joints
i know when i was younger i really used to be into the way things looked. i’d always be looking for the prettiest girl in whatever show i was watching or being put off by dolls which were simple and plain even though they could be played with just as well (which incidentally is probably why i fell in love with monster high dolls, i would have fallen over and DIED if i’d been given one of those as a kid). i loved winx club and w.i.t.c.h. for their art styles but wasn’t so keen on the powerpuff girls or dexter’s lab. i had no understanding of or appreciation for the quality of animation like i do now; all i knew then was that cartoons moved and i liked the ones that were “prettier”.
it’s probably also an “anime is better than cartoons because cartoons are for kids but anime is for adults” mentality so they can justify liking cartoons past childhood, but come on y’all don’t need to justify that.
i see the “wow this cartoon would be even better if it was anime” people lamenting the lack of a scooby-doo anime sometimes, but what they don’t realise is that there’s been one since 1998
Mook Animation was responsible for a large part of the first four DTV movies (even without knowing this you could tell from the animation bump vs the production year that they probably weren’t made in the states)! they’ve also been involved with Akira, Astro Boy, Bleach, Meitantei Conan, FMA: Brotherhood, Ghost in the Shell, Megaman, Gundam, Transformers, Pokémon, Code Geass, the list goes on and on and ON
there’s ur anime scooby-doo you giant nerds now you can be happy
i’m gonna list all the things i miss most about fusionfall because i think they’re not the obvious things
- the thin split line in the sky where the “walls” and “ceiling” of the graphics didn’t quite line up
- that tiny patch of water in the cabin area outside devil’s bluff which let your character “swim” in the grass
- the one goddamn streetgrinder always waiting to jump you on top of city station
- the way your character looked when they tucked and rolled across the ground so energetically
- the view from the very top of the knd treehouse
- the huge amount of big flowery shirts hanging up on washing lines in the peach creek cul-de-sac
- rainbow water in the sector v plaza fountain
- the gigantic bears in the woods which just sat around looking bewildered
- the dexbots behind mandark industries which weren’t given new dialogue after the future levels were scrapped so they still recognised you as the human from dexter’s time travel experiment
- the humming sound all the hover vehicles made
- the way ben gave you pants as a mission reward and then opened his next correspondence message with “hey, nice pants” like he had nothing to do with your fantastic fashion choice
there’s a million more, but it’s little things like that which i miss even more than the actual gameplay. you can get point-and-click fighting mmorpgs literally anywhere, but there were lots of tiny things which won’t ever come up anywhere else which made fusionfall very very special
