I’m re-watching and re-reading the classic YGO
(had to pause the reading because of personal stuff) and I realized Mai gave up two duels in Duelist Kingdom arc
The first one, a anime-only duel, is when Yugi lost all his starchips to Kaiba it just happened Mai arrived to the castle. Previously the guys helped her when she lost her starchips to a PK and had some extra duels to get some more starchips to pay Yugi back. In manga, Yugi accepts them after much insistence and some words of encouragement, but in the anime Anzu steps in.
Mai could had break Anzu’s combo at any time, but that would render her encouragement speech worthless. That wasn’t Mai’s goal, she wanted to Yugi snap out of that sorry mopping and fight. So she just let Anzu finish her.
The second time was when she faced Yami during the finals. The guy was so confident in his own abilities he lost sight of facing the enemy in front of him. That would be a disaster. Planning ahead is important, but you shouldn’t neglect your current situation. And she knew that both Yugi and Jounouchi where fighting for things more pressing than just the prize money. So she let Yugi win after he realized the lesson
Sometimes victory don’t lie in immediate victory, but in the courage to let it go. Real pride isn’t something that can be shaken by a defeat. That’s yet one more reason why Mai is so more stronger than people give her credit
|Anonymous said: Your gifs are amazing and your thoughts on YGO, primarily GX are great. You've posted a few rants on Bonds Beyond Time which feel a bit over-done considering it's more of a 5D's show than anything else, especially when focusing on Judai's eye color or hair shape becomes the focal point of the argument. That said, you're generally a great person to follow. I can't really think of anything you're doing wrong other than watch the first 64 eps of 5D's.|
That was not the focal point. I did ranted on on how Yuugi was uncharacteristic tall as well, Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl speaking strikes me as odd, among other things. The most jarring for me was the continuity issue, there is a problem which contradicts the last two GX episodes, something the fans were expecting the entire series. It was explained to me one of the people responsible for it worked mostly on a very few episodes of DM, the 4th opening of GX and mostly on 5D’s. So ever since that I’ve been cutting some slack to it.
I bet most of Yusei fans would be very upset if his hair would be missing one of the ‘tendrils’ thingies or the strands were completely yellow instead of orange. Or if he had blue eyes or the pattern of his shirt would be missing. For a episode it could be nothing, but for something that was screened on movie theaters they could had been more careful. But still, even Disney and Ghibli does continuity mistakes, I think I can let it go too.
Uh…Are you sure you want me to watch the 64 first episodes of 5D’s? I might bash the movie even more after I get to know Yusei better XD
k, just kidding, don’t kill me STILL! THE BEST VERSION IS THE ABRIDGED VERSION!!!!
Edit: Ok, maybe it was the focal point, I admit. But anybody wants their favorite series being handled with respect by the official producers. Older people might remind how everybody was upset about Final Fantasy : Spirits Within and how it almost bankrupted Square.
I also don’t like the pacing and how the movie was divided overall, as a stand-alone movie it feels empty and it doesn’t develop quite right. Maybe my opinion might change after I get to 5D’s ep64 but even so on EP13 even Yusei feels a little ‘off’ to me. He gives up too easy. Let’s see if this impression holds once I caught up and watch it again.
|Anonymous said: Your meta is really great - I particularly like your post on Yubel's gender. I think you could benefit from proofreading a little more, though. Your English is understandable (I'm assuming it isn't your first language) but sometimes your word choice is a little off.|
I agree with that. I actually didn’t proof-read it at all, but I did a small tweak or two after posting it.
And you’re right on that other account too. One of the reasons I joined tumblr and started RPing was to work out on both issues (proof-reading and wording).
So any help, anything any of you could point out would be great! And thanks for your input!
Go on ANON and tell me what you think of me. I do not want to know who it is, at all. Don’t tell me who it is, don’t give me hints, don’t say your screen name. Tell me exactly what you think of me. Don’t sugarcoat things. Don’t lie. If you hate me, tell me why. Tell me what I’m doing wrong. If you like me, tell me why. Tell me exactly what you think of me.
