Why the fuck would you send your child to a school in the middle of the ocean on an island WITH A VOLCANO??
And not just any volcano! A strato-volcano, actually. And a prison for a certain kid built underground. And an animal-testing lab. And a dorm whose entire student body up and vanished. And the equivalent of card-game nuclear warheads sealed right under the school. I swear, sometimes I think Kaiba was on drugs when he designed the place and right now he’s paying off the authorities to not come up and close the place. .
My headcanon is that he put Mokuba in charge of the project and didn’t bother to oversee anything about the DA’s construction until after the kids started to go missing. Then he and Mokuba had a chat about how, just because he grew up kidnapped and in danger all the time, does not mean that the standard school experience is like that. And fuck, Mokuba, our name is attached to this things, kids are missing and, not only that, there’s some supernatural shit going on again, and fuck it. You knew about this didn’t you, Mokuba? Didn’t you? Did Yugi put you up to this? Was it Ishizu? I swear to fucking god I am so done with all this magic shit. Alright, fine, you deal with it Mokuba. It’s your project, so you deal with. I just want a complete briefing on my desk by the end of the week. MLA format, NO CRAYONS.
people are going on about how astral is just suddenly being a dick but i don’t… think that’s what’s happening here?
yuma’s going on about how he couldn’t do anything for shark, kaito, or rio in this duel and, like, shark and kaito are some of his best friends
and once astral sees that, their resolve just sort of settles? and… astral kind of loves yuma, i don’t think you can really argue that?? so… i’m thinking that — well, not that astral has the intention of losing to yuma, but that there’s a belief that yuma now has the ability to win this duel.
although there’s a failsafe, i think, in deleting yuma’s memories of their time together should astral win.
steeling yourself, and sacrificing yourself for your friends’ sake, is how shark, kaito, iii, and v went out before — there’s a theme here — so maybe that’s what astral’s going to do, too. i’d like to believe that after 144 episodes, yuma’s inspired a change in astral. wasn’t that the point?
(and i suspect that when astral falls we’ll all be hearing masterpiece in our head)
#astral has specifically stated that yuuma changed him. what happened in this episode was astral lying#I was going to say something like this after watching the episode but then gx but thank you for posting this#what I want to know is how are we retconning the barians and kaito using numeron exactly?#I just don’t understand the numeron code honestly
A short rant about Kotori:
I know that some of you think it is weird that Kotori still hasn’t her own deck or any cards at all and is “just” cheering for the others (and some people say she isn’t a good main character because of this).
But think about it for a minute:
It is quite a normal thing for friends to cheer for each other, if they have the same interests or hobbies. But it is very hard to encourage your friends and help them if you don’t have the same interests (in this case: playing card games). So please have a bit of respect for Kotori, because she’s trying to give her best to help Yuuma and Co.
Yesterday a promotional card for the Austin-based Capital City Comic Con was posted on Twitter. Here’s a look:
At the time was there was quite of bit of negative response including from a representatives of Zeus Comics who originally posted the flyer to Twitter.
I reached out to the con to see if they were aware of this flyer which they were. Another woman posted on their Facebook page with an explanation that included the suggestion that she had never been to a con.
After a few hours of this story circulating over the internets several other people posted to their Facebook page and other places about the flyer. I’ll note that the majority of these comments were not positive and were from both men and women. (I have also been told that Capital City Comic Con deleted some of the negative comments off their site) I also heard from creators who told me that after seeing the artwork earlier this week they had decided not to support the show.
The organizers have now posted the following to their Facebook page:
In response to our prior ad campaign, the proper
steps are being taken in regards to this situation. Capital City Comic Con did not mean to offend or harm anyone, in any way. Our advertising department has been contacted and changes to our marketing material and plan are being made.
We respect everyone’s opinion. We are glad this issue was brought to our attention. We want everyone to feel safe at our convention and not feel offended. As a comic book convention, it is primordial that we do not send the wrong message to fans.
We were contacted by a few female fans who wish to support the distribution of our initial flyers, to which we respectfully declined. As for our future plans, we will no longer use the image of superheroes (or any character) in such fashion. We wish to apologize to anyone we may have offended with our initial promotional campaign.
We would like to invite all of you to comment on our new campaign once released. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
From the staff and management
I’m going to side-eye that reference to “female fans” but, whatever, it’s over.
Let’s hope that comic cons and comic shops choose to promote their events with images that come from the tiresome “boys only” meme of comics realize it is not smart business.
