i can never get any sleep in the winter
So I saw this absolutely cute sprite edit of Souda, Sonia, and Gundam (even his little hamsters) as pirates! Can you do the souniagundam trio as a pirate crew?
I saw them too, very cute! Maybe in that era, princess Sonia ran away in order to fight the corruption in other governments, and went underneath a secret alias. Souda is a master of ship mechanics, and Gundam has maps of everything in the world, so they’re instantly recruited on her freshly bought ship! She is Captain S, and they will rob the rich to give to the poor! It’s all for one and one for all!
It’s time for Hope Peak Academy’s physical exams! The nurses weigh everyone and make sure they’re all healthy. But Chihiro is super nervous… whoever is assigned to him will find out his real gender. How will they take it?
Yes, Mikan is startled, but she manages to cover her mouth when the gasp comes. Chihiro flusters, trying to apologize, but in turn Mikan apologizes, and they’re a flailing mess for a few minutes. But then Mikan bows hard, and promises not to spill this secret. Boy or girl, I will treat you the same as you deserve to be treated! My priority is physical health… so you must focus on your own mental and emotional health!
chihiro is deeply touched, and thanks Mikan profusely. Mikan is in turn surprised to be thanked! Ah, being thanked, it feels so nice… oh, she’s crying again, she’s sorry, no i’m sorry!!!
Watch the entire “Let It Go” scene from Frozen featuring Idina Menzel performing as Elsa.
If you don’t wanna go see Frozen, this is the best 3:39 of the movie (except the short that plays beforehand). What a jam.
goosebumps every time!
Oh god Sarah you are so right
This character is basically Elphaba and Let it Go = No Good Deed
Biggest difference? Idina’s voice does not match this character or it’s expressions.
A voice so strong was not meant for a character so cotton candy soft. ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY DIDN’T MAKE HER EMOTIONAL RANGE LARGE ENOUGH TO MATCH THE INTENSITY OF THE MUSIC??? The song is good, yeah. But the energy in the scene from this character design makes me cringe. It’s fucking Rapunzel trying to sing a song from Wicked fucking fuck what.
This was really lazy, Disney.
Elsa is an Elphaba copy
i think the big problem with the emotional range is the fact that they literally went out of their way to not make her face contort with the emotional waves of the song, because they wanted to make her stay “pretty”. if you watch Idina Menzel sing, well, pretty much anything, but especially her songs from Wicked, she is EMOTING. she is earnestly performing ev-ry sing-le syll-a-ble. she’s not “attractive” when she does it, but that doesn’t matter, because you’re not looking at her for her face, you’re looking for the feeling.
if you watch the video, the song kills, but the disconnect comes from the fact that elsa isn’t emoting. and this goes right along with all the problems of the production. it’s quite obvious the animators don’t care enough, because you have this intense song being sung by this powerhouse of a performer, and they aren’t trying to make the match; it’s all halfhearted.
and elsa, if you ask me, is a poor-man’s elphaba, because she’s not emoting. when i listen to wicked, i respond, because i hear the emotions and i remember seeing how it was performed; i cried during defying gravity because of the performance. when i watch elsa, i can see menzel in my mind’s eye performing it in the recording booth, and the difference between the two is jarring.
toni is always better at saying what I want to say so reblogging again
and you know what? It’s sad when the most emotional part of the song happens when you can’t see the character’s face:
THAT STOMP WAS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF THE WHOLE SCENE WHEN THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN:
SHE IS LIFTING A GODDAMN SHOW PALACE
THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN FUCKING COOL
LOOK AT HER. AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC. AND CRINGE AT THE UNCOMFORTABLE DISPLACEMENT OF IT ALL WITH ME
“when i watch elsa, i can see menzel in my mind’s eye performing it in the recording booth, and the difference between the two is jarring.”
Y E S
((also this was the only song scene in the movie that actually made me feel anything….and now that I see it out of context it’s really mediocre, but compared to everything else, it was amazing and I called it “phenomenal” in my liveblog @_@))
The last shot is particularly guilty. Her weird bedroom eyed sexy face seemed kinda outta place.
It’s weird, because it makes me feel almost frustrated for the animators themselves, because was the rigging purposely limited so there couldn’t be as much squash and stretch/pose pushing/etc without going “off model”? Or was it a purposeful direction from the get go? Or just in the animation stage? Hrm.
I’ve yet to watch the movie a third time to focus solely on animation (I know I’m a sad person and shitty animator for it), but now that I’m looking at screenshots and remembering the scene in general, it’s kinda irksome, seeing as during the other songs, Anna had more of a emoting face? Hrmmmmmmm.
wOW THANK YOU FOR DESCRIBING THIS SO WELL I WAS DEFINITELY FEELING KINDA WEIRD ABOUT THIS AND YOU NAILED IT
this is possibly the worst casting that has ever come out of a disney movie?? like i dont think there’s anything bad or lesser about a tiny blonde ice queen, but if your character looks like a glamorous soprano cast a glamorous soprano for her character song? if you cast IDINA MENZEL at least attempt to give the character animation the gravity and power that her voice deserves
the vocals are incredible and the animation is lovely but i am actually cringing just watching it, it honestly looks like a bad lip sync, this is actually so sad
I’m so glad I wasn’t the only one who was honestly disappointed with the animation of this amazing song, even if it’s beautiful. Actually, like someone else said, it might be too beautiful. Idina Menzel puts so much into her singing and this is such a powerful, emotive message that you just want /more/ from Elsa. I listened to Let It Go before I saw it, and what I envisioned vs. what I watched was vastly different.
I wonder if even the storyboards for this were originally this bland or if there was more energy. This is a girl that has had to grit her teeth and hold back something for so long out of fear and responsibility. Her letting go should be /felt/ by the audience through both the audio and visual. There should be no dull/lazy/safe poses or expressions in this and yet somehow there are.
this just summed up my issues and disconnect with frozen. that and olaf and the… overall meh of it all. i enjoyed it, but for some reason (maybe the feeling of a team who didn’t have one vision?) i just couldn’t connect with it.
What I don’t get is that this is so obviously an intensely bitter song??? And she looks like someone just told her the network decided to renew her favorite TV series for another season.
prompt: non-despair AU. Hinata and Nanami go on a date, only to be tailed by Souda, Ibuki, and Tsumiki. Upon discovering the group, Hinata decides to "put on a show" and starts getting very flirty and romantic with Nanami to everyone's surprise due to his cynical nature Nanami is flustered, but very happy. How would it turn out?
Hinata being purposely flirty is such a hilarious image. And I bet the poor boy doesn’t even know how to do it. But if it makes Nanami flustered, then that can only mean one thing… Gaming puns.
Tanaka x Fujisaki?
That’s an oddly popular pairing I’ve seen spring up.
For this scenario, I’ll say that Chihiro’s secret has been exposed, and most of the school avoids him because of it. Chihiro feels very lonely… but notices at least one student treats him normally - Gundam! Chihiro comes up to him, and asks if the whole crossdressing thing is such a big deal. Gundam snorts - of course not! In the animal kingdom, genders are easy to change, and males don all sorts of ‘feminine’ attire to attract a mate. It’s humans who are the savages, for being so terrified of something he sees as simple. Chihiro brightens, happily sticking to him, feeling much better. May I pet a hamster? …. Yes. Yes you may.
The SDR2 cast at the MVD (or is it DMV idk anymore), who is operated by the DR cast. Each of the DR cast is trying to work with each respective couple/person from sdr2 to renew their driver's license but it all goes awry. May the dysfunctional hilarity ensue.
Where I’m from, it’s the DMV. Let me see…
When Fukawa turns on the radio, she notices the song that comes on sounds almost like the viewpoint of the protagonist of one of her novels. Curious, she looks up the song online, and finds the next single from the same artist… and again, it sounds very familiar! Good thing the singer attends the same school as she does!
Fukawa tries to think of how to approach and ask Mioda about this, stalking her in the library. Yes indeed, Mioda is reading her novels! She comes by every so often on break periods to read, and for a few days Fukawa keeps stalking her, until one day she goes in and sees Mioda isn’t at her usual spot. Fukawa frowns… then feels a tap on her shoulder.
"If you wanted to say hi to Ibuki, now’s your chance!"
fukawa jumps a foot, and lo and behold, Mioda’s known she was doing this for a while. Mioda had assumed Fukawa was a shy fan, and happily agrees to spend time with her. Fukawa, nervous, asks about the songs she heard about, and the inspiration behind him. “Oh, those! Ibuki loves these cool books, you see? At first you think they’re all sappy, but then you get to know the characters, and it’s like… wow! Real life! Real emotions! Come on and read them with me! You’ll be Ibuki’s Book Buddy!” She pulls Fukawa into a chair and reads out loud to her, much to the annoyance of everyone else in the library.
"Upupupu…I feel so happy and sad at the same time… I’ve become the perfect apprentice to my love, but she’s not here to see it! It’s not fair… I wanted her to see the despair I brought forward in her name! I made this game just for her! So you must despair for her! I’ll replay this game as many times as it takes to wring the most despair out of you! She must have more! I must give her infinite despair! It’s all for you, my love, do you see me?! All for you!"
Prompt: Dangan Ronpa chapter 2 AU where no murders occurred, so Monobear makes good on his threat to reveal everyone's darkest secrets. In the original game, we only learned three (Naegi used to wet the bed until 5th grade, Chihiro is secretly male, and Mondo lied about the circumstances of his brother's death). In a big "revelation scene" where Monobear reveals EVERYONE'S secrets, how might the scene go, and what secrets might be revealed?
Well, as to what they’re secrets are, I’ve heard some good head-canon ones, such as Ishimaru’s being that he is related to the worst prime minister Japan ever had. As for the others…
