when i was a child i used to think teens were grown ups and when i was a teen i thought college students were grown ups and now that im a college student im just like what the hell is a grown up anymore
Now that I’m older than college age I’ve concluded that grown ups are a myth.
friends turned lovers is literally my favorite trope - like, all other tropes can go home.
give me shared inside jokes that date back to wayyyyy before a first kiss was ever shared. give me living together with separate bedrooms until one of them gradually becomes unnecessary. give me confused reactions from people who already assumed the two of them were dating. give me arguments over what counts as an anniversary because should we start at the date we met or the date we became friends or the date we got over our stupid selves and finally started kissing.
give me stories that show the line between friends and lovers is a really, really thin one - that appreciating the friendship that two characters share doesn’t mean you can’t ship them really damn hard too. that you can keep all the awesome friends-being-assholes-to-each-other stuff and add on all the shippy stuff to get something extra special awesome.
What did that Japanese blogger say in regards to that? I'm interested in what their view on it as well.
They note that even though the female fanbase for American superheroes has been booming for several years already (that goes for Japan as well), the higher ups in the industry who are all still caught up in the old status quo (“we have to sell toys to boys”) have as of yet no idea how to capitalize on that, and this is a path Japan has walked already.

The OP mentions Tiger & Bunny, which I think is a good example of a superhero show (albeit of the Japanese variety) being marketed successfully to boys as well as girls and I think it’s very well possible that as with Young Justice, the female fans might outnumber the male ones. Just google image “Tiger & Bunny” and it becomes pretty obvious.
I mean, come on.
I also know several examples of traditionally shounen (aimed at male youth) properties that once they were made into anime, started to incorporate fanservice of male characters or giving popular characters more screentime, once it becomes clear that the show does well with the female audience.
If you think about it it’s a crying shame that western animation companies aren’t getting with the times better. The Japanese companies have the same main interest, money. And the cold hard truth is that Cartoon Network and Warner Brothers are missing out on money because they failed to recognize the potential of a Young Justice properly marketed to the female audience.
皆、私の新しいペットを紹介しましょう。この子はギンちゃんです！友達にくれました。ヨロシクね、ギンちゃん！^.^ Everyone, let me introduce you to my new pet. This little guy is Gin-chan! A friend gave him to me. Nice to meet you, Gin-chan! ^.^ I promise I’ll take good care of you~
I’ve got a plenty of foreign 6IV dittos for all your MMing and breeding needs. These purple blob studs make the perfect breeding tools.
I can also get you any pokemon that’s possible to get in special balls including: Love, Lure, Moon, Friend, Level, Heavy, Fast, Safari and Dream. Make sure though that it’s possible to get them without hacking, otherwise I can’t transfer them over.
Looking for: Kalos born shinies, Blazikenite, and maybe event mons or pokemon with cherish balls/special event ribbons. Will be checking both of them for legitimacy/uncloned.
Hello! May I ask you how do you find out if a pokemon is cloned/hacked? I mean, obvious hack like wrong movesets I can check, but I don't know how to check cloning or not-obvious hacking.
I plan on putting up a guide to disclose my secrets (cause I don’t think its fair for others to get ripped off). But aside from obvious stuff like shiny mews (which almost nobody has a legit one due to how fucking rare it is just to get a normal mew from that event, let alone a shiny one), I check to see if the ball is legal like how gen 4 and 5 starters will only be caught in pokeballs iirc, then if its an event mon I check to see if the event exists from event databases and see if it matches up correctly by asking for the ID number. Then I ask for nature/stats and calculate the IVs and check pokecheck and /r/blackmarketpokemon’s clone list to see if the same poke shows up there with the same ID No/Nature/IV spread.
Also I err on the side of caution and try to avoid trading old/most foreign events without proof like wondercards (which are also helpful in general). It’s not foulproof, especially with no pokecheck for gen 6 to upload pokemon to and detect both public and private clones, but I’d say this process helps me weed out about 70-80% of hacks/clones. Tumblr is like high risk high reward when it comes to trading. I’ve ended up with lots of crap but I’ve also ended up with amazing stuff like a legitimate shiny korean event Genesect.
I’ll be posting more tips and helpful stuff in my guide that I plan to put up soon including on how to detect hacked shinies from gen 6 where people force the pokemon to be shiny through powersaves and how to detect pokemon that have had the kalos born mark hacked in as well.
