Originally posted on my main blog, but was removed from YouTube. Decided to set up a dedicated blog for it, so reblogging from there!
So I really wanted to show exactly how amazing and faithful the new Sailor Moon Crystal was. This is what I put together! This is my shot-by-shot comparison of the first episode versus the original manga. It is the entire first episode, minus the opening and ending credits.
Details are in the video description, but I wanted to mention that I wanted to showcase the artwork and shot design, rather than the dialogue or word bubbles, so I cropped out what wasn’t being directly compared. I’m also SUPER overthinking this.
Anyway, enjoy! Credits for all materials used are in the video description

Lower face: Take away all the obvious physical attributes, and you can see how she holds each character to her own even when it comes to the subtle attributes.
As Alison, she holds it firm. So much, that her very obvious chin kind of just paths itself with the rest of her jawline.
As Helena, she hold her lips a little loose, giving the movement a sort of ease.
As Sarah, the right side of her lower face is slightly crooked, making a dip right around the lips corner. Also when she talks, the left side of her lower lip juts out a bit.
As Cosima, she seems to put most of the pressure on the lower lip, and uses mostly the part under it, keeping the upper lip in place.
If you have noticed anymore, do message me.
orphan black has one white straight dude main character and they call him “big dick paul” and that’s literally all you need to know about why orphan black is my favorite tv show
no guys you dont understand. this is my favourite alison scene. from morning till felix came to see her she passed the time by knitting a whole pair of pastel purple gloves. if thats not the most metal part idk what is.
#i remember when i first noticed the fucking gloves#i was like hot damn ali#thats some hardcore shit#i feel like as a cia agent she’d be in the middle of torturing someone#and as they bleed out#she sits the fuck down at a table#and starts knitting until they decide they wanna#start talking and confessing#then she’d be like#hold on im almost done knitting this scarf
Chronically ill people face ableism, you don’t get to conveniently forget this to talk about how mentally ill people are treated
"Imagine if all people with illnesses were treated like-"
ϟ 95) When Teddy was an infant, his hair turned color to match that of the person he wanted to hold him. This worked well when he wanted his godfather, which was often, but it became incredibly confusing when he sought a Weasley. There were many hasty rounds of pass-the-baby-because-dear-god-stop-the-crying.
Anonymous said: the ableist jokes in gotg were so gross, jfc. do you think they could have been acceptable if they were framed as displaying one of rocket's flaws rather than a cheap gag? or were those moments just unsalvageable?
I think if someone had told rocket why that’s not funny? or at least if it had been framed not just a hilarious joke and actually really cruel it would have been less of a problem, but yeah. I think the first joke probs wouldn’t have scanned for me if they’d left it at that, but then the second one reinforced what they were going for and just like. ok.
also fandom has started being like “rocket should take bucky’s arm” and haha ok please fandom don’t do that
Molly Weasley knowing her youngest is trans long before Ginny comes out, and reassuring her daughter that “we’ll still get you new clothes as quick as we can, dear. Ron’s hand-me-downs just wont do, will they?”, whenever Ginny worries about her transitioning being a burden to her family.

Molly Weasley send the Twins constant letters reminding them to study, as well as little ways she finds to improve focus, and reminding them that even if their ADHD makes it too hard sometimes, she’s still so proud of them.

Harry Potter headcanons are important to me.
I would like to bring up an important point right now.
Autistics are literally forced to learn NT social skills, communication, and body language. Otherwise we will be openly discriminated against and mistreated. I was bullied so extensively when I was young that I cried myself to sleep until I learned how to pass as NT and the bullying effectively stopped.
But here’s the thing: we still have our own social skills, communication, and body language that is unique to autistics. Things like stimming, vocal repetition, and conveying meaning in an unusual way will still happen, particularly around people we can trust.
So if you have an autistic in your life, I want you to learn the same things they did. I want you to learn how to understand their unique social skills, communication, and body language. Learn how to read them as easily as you would an allistic. Return the favor. It’s the least you could do, and it will make the relationship easier for everyone.
