30 Day Anime Challenge Day 21: Your Anime Crush

Ahh anime crushes.  Yes crushes, as in more than one.  I’m an expert when it comes to anime waifus.   I believe, no, I know have a superior eagle eye when it comes to spotting a good series waifu.  So, how many waifus do I have?

A lot (sadly).  I won’t go over all of them, as I have to get ready for work soon, so I’m just going to focus on my first four anime crushes from my childhood: Sabrina from Pokemon, Hotaru Tomoe and  Ami Mizuno from Sailor Moon, and Washu from Tenchi Muyo.

Sabrina

Sabrina is pretty damn interesting. As a kid, I loved that she has some cool ass psychic powers; a trait that set her apart from the rest of the gym leaders.  There was also that stern, cruel, almost sadistic  look she had on her face throughout her arc that I really like. She also had a whip and called herself the Mistress of Psychic Pokemon…alright so that may explain a few things about myself that I probably should not had posted here.

Also her laugh was cute:

Hotaru Tomoe/Sailor Saturn

Worse girl

Me having a fictional crush on Hotaru as a kid may had been the first sign that I  low high-key would have a thing for quiet, “creepy” and “weird” girls.

Also as Saturn, I love her cold, serious look – incredibly opposite from her civilian personality.

Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury

Sailor Mercury may had been the first sign that I’d high-key have a thing for dorky,  bookworm  computer nerd girls.

 

Washu

washu

While I’m on the subject of smart, nerdy girls, Washu is the best.  My number one favorite thing about her besides her smarts, was how incredibly cocky and prideful she was towards herself.   This woman even created two puppets modeled after her that would celebrate her genius each time she did something amazing (that some shit I would do).

 

There’s also this infamous scene from the OVA that solidifed her waifu status for me:

 

So fellow weeaboos, who’re your anime crushes?  Feel free to comment in the comment sections below!

Anime Analysis 1

THEORY: On the Source of Kale and Her “Legendary Super Saiyan” Power (Part 1)

It’s safe to say that Kale (the new Broly-inspired female Super Saiyan of Dragon Ball Super) stole the spotlight of episode 93 of Dragon Ball Super with her powers and Legendary Super Saiyan influenced transformation.    Clearly she’ll be an astonishingly teammate of Universe 6 for King Zeno’s Tournament of Power, just as long as she can showcase the same raw, brute strength that she has shown Cabba and Caulfia during their training.  Now, we know  that her power is prominent compared to her Saiyan friends, there’s no debate about it (not yet at least), but what is the source of it?

I have two theories I came up with: From either being bullied in the past or jealously towards Cabba.   To start off, let’s go with my first theory: her being bullied. When we’re first introduced to Kale, we can see that she’s very timid, shy, and socially withdrawn; common traits of children (as well as teens and adults) who’ve been bullied.

Dragon-Ball-Super-Épisode-89-108

Children who’ve been often bullied tend to have a lot of anger and rage build and bottled up inside.  Like her inspiration Broly, what does Kale has a lot? Rage.  Pure rage.   But unlike Broly, she probably knows how to hide it “well”…or at least somebody starts taunting her with cruel words.  Cabba  learned this the hard way.
Since anger is a great tool to transform into a Super Saiyan, Cabbas uses this tactic to help Kale achieve this state.   And by “help” her, I mean he starts insulting the poor girl with horrible words and phrases such as “useless”, “pathetic excuse for a Saiyan”, and “stupid”.  Kale starts crying, losing whatever reminding confidence she had and doubts herself.   She states that Cabba is right; she is a useless no-good Saiyan, and that she’ll only get in Caulifla’s  way in the tournament (Kale got some unresolved self-esteem problems).  Caulifla is rather pissed, upset at Cabba for making her student cry.  She tries to calm Kale down and wants her to stop beating herself up, but it’s too late.

Kale gets emotional and loses all logical sense and reasoning.  Cabba’s words totally had an effect on her, as she starts transforming into a Super Saiyan, but not just any ol’ average Super Saiyan.  Cauifla notices Kale’s transformation is a little wee different compares to her own and Cabba’s.  Cabba tells Kale that she doesn’t need to put out so much energy, but Kale has completely lost it.

Kale  finishes her “Legendary Super Saiyan” transformation, directs her attention towards Cabba, and vows to kill him first, marking him as her first victim.  She’s pissed.   When bullying victims had enough, they will snap. They’ll   go after the source of their pain and anger, and attack.  It can be assumed that Cabba’s words  were the last straw for her.

Dragon-Ball-Super-Episode-93-65-Kale-Super-Saiyan-Legendaire-SSJL-363x204

I assume in her young life, Kale was often bullied and teased.  Maybe she had a vicious tormentor that called her useless and pathetic  at any  chance.  Maybe, this tormentor got her on a really bad day, and she was already piss off about something.   The tormentor does their usual bullying  towards her.  Kale may have been like “please stop”, but the tormentor just laughs and laughs,  insulting Kale further.  All the anger that she bottled prior starts to overflow and she can’t contain it.

Kale snaps, transform into her monstrous state, and attacks the bully violently.  I doubt she killed them (she seems like a very sweet girl who wouldn’t purposely kill somebody), but did enough damage to scare the fuck outta her tormentor into not trying that bullying shit towards her again.

After she regain herself and transforms back to normal, she saw the damage she caused, regretted her actions (despite the bully being a piece of shit), and vows not to allow herself to get that so angry  that she transform into that state again.

Of course, this is just all my headcanon/theory, and we may not yet get an official in-depth backstory about Kale and her powers in the immediate future.  Anyway, that’s it for part one of my theory about Kale’s.  Part two will explore how I think jealously and a possible crush Kale has on Caulifa might be the source of her powers.

Until then!

Weird Waifus and Fictional Crushes

I need this image for the clickbait views.

So the other day I created a thread on a Facebook group entitled “Who Is Your Favorite Gym Leader from Pokemon.”  I chosen Sabrina (Natsume for you Nippon-go speaking hardcore/weeaboo fans) from the first generation series (Red/Blue/Yellow)

Sabrina is pretty damn interesting. I love that she has some cool ass psychic powers; a trait that set her apart from the rest of the gym leaders.  She was also pretty out there with her emotionless state, up until a suicide bombin’ Haunter made her laugh her ass off.

haunter_and_whats_her_face
Man, seeing her laugh was heart-warming. And then Haunter get put on a terrorist watch list.

I imagine she loves fucked up black humor comedy.  She seems like the type.

As I’m hunting down  fan art of the psychic Pokemon leader (and a few NSFW fan art) , in addition of fanart of the Hex Maniac trainer class (who happens to be my favorite trainer class in the series), it dawned on me: I like weird characters.  Not only that, a lot of my fictional crushes/waifus over the years are of the weird and creepy archetype.

Let’s break it down:

You guys know I’m a huge Hotaru/Sailor Saturn fanboy.  She was one of my very first fictional crushes as a kid (or waifu.  Whatever sad weird otaku shit we be callin’ this shit now).  I thought her weirdness and creepiness was amazing, something that made her different from the rest of the cast.

I hate this character.

When the first Teen Titan cartoon dropped years ago, my two favorite female characters were Raven and Jinx.  I wasn’t a huge fan of neither Starfire or Terra.  Raven and Jinx were superior compare to the two mentioned.  Again, these two  were weird, creepy ass girls who I was attractive to because of their character design.

When I was getting into the GBA Fire Emblem games, I invested a lot of time, items and in-game money (as well as stats changing cheat codes lol) into the dark mage Sophia to make her my most powerful magic user.       Fuck whatever the elitist FE fanboys said about her being garbage!  I’m was going to make Sophia the best on my file! Plus she was shy, quiet, and had purple aesthetes, so added bonuses! I am very biased.

She is utter garbage without babying her holy shit

 

Further down in my weebish otaku adult life, I would fall in love and fanboy over characters such as Stocking from Panty and Stocking With Garterbelt, Tharja from Fire Emblem Awakening, and Tae from Persona 5.  The characters I named have this errie, dark gothic  and alternate aesthesis to their design nature.

Hell, now that I think about it, I’m attractive to weird women.  It is natural given I’m a part of the nerd subculture and nerds in general are weird.  Fuck, I weird myself.  I write blogs about anime culture.  I’m writing about crushing on fictional cartoon and video games characters who will never exist.  That’s goddamn weird as hell.

But really, I honest to god think me liking weird, alternate women may parallel to my fictional crushes over the year.  I am also charmed by nerdy women as well but that goes hand-and-glove with weird woman.  If I were to go into details why however,  I would be just repeating myself but with nerdy girls replacing weird ones.  Same shit.  Different toilet.

Weird people are awesome.   And attractive.
