can the scientific side of tumblr explain why is Midousuji so loved by a lot of people (including me of course), and is probably the character that attracts more people into the fandom than anybody else?

I don’t even know why I like him. I mean I know but. I don’t think most people like him for the same reasons???(?)?(??

I made a large post about this a while back detailing reasons why Midosuji is a fan favorite, but I can’t find it so here it is, condensed:

  • He’s the villain, at least for the first part of the story. Instant bad-boy appeal, y’know.
  • He has power. Biking prowess, using his expertise to crush his opponents on the racing track.
  • He’s outwardly despicable and gross and uninhibited. Some people are into that sort of filth. (I say outwardly because I speak mainly of the part of his persona used to intimidate people)
  • His past. A genuinely sad loss he experienced at an age too young. This is where people get really attached to Midosuji and his dreary, pained inside.

People like him because he’s a very unusual character, and honestly initially looks like he doesn’t belong in an anime like Yowapeda, which just adds to the shock factor/appeal and his partial status as an enigma.

I feel like in the anime it doesn’t feel the same way, but over all I think Yowapeda is a manga written in a really really good way. The art is ugly yes, but you never get bored and it’s extremely easy to like a character, so I think he is the one written in the most interesting way (bc you have to read a lot until you finally understand his intentions)

I don’t know about the power, they all have power but what he has and the rest don’t is that he is really really mean. Still these are all things that you know only when you read or watched a lot of episodes.

I think that the look and the things he says and way he acts are the main reason, like you see screencaps from the episodes with all of his expressions and you come to a point where you ask “ok who the fuck is this guy” and as you get into yowapeda….you also start loving the dude… Still showapeda is probably the show with most interesting/original characters right now, they don’t even need to be pretty, if they are interesting the fandom takes care of that.

Noosa - Clocktower (Sound Remedy remix)

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

well i hope you like the novella i left in your ask box

i dont know who alex is, but rip in pepperoni, alex


im gonna sit here and laugh while alex tumbles into tera hell 

omg alex since you seem to like castanics so much heres some lore for you:

The markings on castanic skin are arcane scars. They were inflicted when their artifact, the Crown of Phanes, killed the god Balder. The feedback from that event scarred all adults and even now, the onset of puberty is marked by a painful episode in which every castanic develops the scars. Some scholars claim the scars are a divine curse, a Mark of Cain, if you will.

It really upsets me when i see pictures of people holding their rabbit in a trance just to snap a cute photo when they likely do not even know nor understand the unnecessary stress they’re invoking on the animal for what they are generally equating to a parlor trick.

"It actually kind of sucks having to be a director. Once you do it, you discover how hard it really is. This is no kind of a job for a human being, let me tell you. I think I ought to quit, but I can’t really do anything else!"
