Because it was literally the last time many Japanese adults ever had a chance to be happy. This is something I've suspected for a long time, and I've seen videos on the subject by Gaijin Goombah, The Anime Man and a couple of others, but nothing REALLY slams the nail on the head like the first minute or so of this video. Watch (or at least listen to) the whole thing when you have the time. Japan's workforce really needs to loosen up and you know... LIVE.

Masters of War- B-day gift for Foxyturttle
For :iconfoxyturttle:

It's my favorite power couple in Transformers history, Strika and Obsidian, modeled after their recent 3rd party counterparts (Titanika and Oberon) respectively. I like to imagine this is how they looked back in their glory days, during G1, before being reformatted with Vehicon bodies in Beast Machines. HEADCANON CONFIRMED.

That's it for today.

Planet Ripple- 48- Merfolk Children
So yeah, Noma is a mother. You may've noticed that merfolk kid who stared at Minnow a coupla' pages ago was grey skinned and didn't have a lot of freckles. They get their "patches" and colors as they age. This is something my mother brought up to me a while back, that if the children were as brightly colored as the adults, they would die out because the babies would be easily spotted by predators and gobbled up. I hadn't even thought about that. Thankfully, as established, the adults do offer some protection with their sonic blasts, but yeah, it makes sense that they would've evolved to attract less attention as young. Don't worry, Nalm isn't going to be eaten by a shark or whatever. He's just beautiful, is all.

Of course, it's not nice of him to say there's something wrong with Minnow, and his mother is quick to correct him, but... come on, he's a 5 year old with no knowledge of the world or humans. I think we can forgive him this one.

About the last few panels. The bit with Minnow humming to show how similar our species are is EXTREMELY important to me. It's one of the first moments I thought up after I'd decided to feature merfolk in this story. I feel it's also important for the readers. These merfolk have generally been very well-received, but there's sure to be a few people walking into this book who find them weird and unrelatable cause they're too different. Well, now they aren't that different at all. They hum and talk and laugh and sing just like we do. Woooooo. I've always liked that it's essentially what whales do all the time in real life.

Also, look at his nose running. Too cute! Now just imagine someone pulling out a hanky and wiping the top of his head. Haha.

Planet Ripple- 47- No touch
Notice Minnow leaves out the part where she was there when Andrea died... yeah, she probably doesn't want new acquaintances hearing about that and judging her like so many others have.

The whole "touch" thing is going to come up a few times later on. On the one hand, she can't feel her fingers burning on a stove or being pinched. On the other hand, it's more like she's watching someone else's limbs do what her brain tells them too. It's sort of like the world is one big abyss, and she reaches out, but nothing's there. She sees it, but doesn't feel it. Not with these limbs, anyway.

That's it for today.

Planet Ripple- 46- Unsightly
This is another one of those pages that says a lot in little time. First off... Minnow apparently sees herself as ugly. It's really not surprising that she feels that way, but it sure does suck. She's so cuuute with her freckles and messy hair! She ain't ugly at all.

As for this Merfolk lady... yeah, it's kind of awkward that you didn't ask PERMISSION to sit next to this person you've only just met. But, that's just how Merfolk are, really. They tend to be very... touchy-feely. Although they speak our languages just fine, the "spoken" language they use to communicate underwater is very simple. They rely on body language and touch as much as sound to get a point accross, so they're very physical, as you can imagine. They like to huddle and send "positive energy" into friends in distress an' whatnot.  You kind of have to explain to them why it's rude to get all up in somebody's face.

Minnow doesn't even know how to deal with this or whether she should accept the gesture or not. That's a bit of her autism showing through, I guess.

(And before anyone accuses me of appropriating autism, I'm an aspie myself, okay? Okay.)

That's it for today.

I've been thinking. Maybe the description page 30 of Planet Ripple foreshadows that the main villain is also a cyborg. One that is driven mad from both loss and the racism (which is the more proper word than prejudice).

Maybe eventually, but not this part. The villain of the first major story arc takes pride in not being a cyborg.
