TW: Rape, abuse
Ethiopian girl guarded from gang rape & assault by three lions.
“The girl had been taken by seven men who wanted to force her to marry one of them. She was beaten repeatedly. Then the lions chased off her captors. The three lions guarded her for about half a day. They stood guard until we found her and then they just left her like a gift and went back into the forest.”
Then, Stuart Williams (the local wildlife ‘expert’) suggests that perhaps the lions mistook the 12 year old girl’s cries for a lion cub. Which seems awfully silly, considering that lions are perfectly capable of telling apart the gazelles they eat from their own cubs, aren’t they?
MAJESTIC CREATURE OF JUSTICE
lunareticdawn: and most currently, the release of Gundam Origin, which follow Tomino’s original novelization that is far darker and grim than the original series was.
Actually no; The Origin and Tomino’s hilariously bad Gundam novels are not related. The Origin is simply Yas’s take on the story.
Amuro x Char has pretty much become my OTR (One True Rivalry)
Amuro and Chars brief bromance is by far the best part of Zeta Gundam.
It just occurred to me about The Origin:
This is probably going to bring about some changes in VA’s. I honestly think Amuro and Char will have new voice actors just because Sunrise could do that.
I mean Furuya and Ikeda are both just fine but I mean hey. it’s probably gonna happen.
No, it’s not.
While I think recasting would be an interesting way to take The Origin, Ikeda is just way too popular with Gunota to be recast. His name is tied extremely heavily to Char when it comes to promotional material (like the Char car) Film and Live performances, ect.
Not to mention that recasting in Gundam is always met with a lot of controversy. When they couldn’t get Sayla’s voice actor they simply didn’t use that character for Zeta or CCA, despite how important she is to the narrative.
Obscure references like these are why you need to watch ZZ before Unicorn.
“One day, you will run headlong into the same despair that I did.”
You can never go back to being part of that everybody.
Keep telling yourself, even so, Michelangelo!
I think she handled this perfectly.
Gotta give Angelo some credit.
I mean we all need that jerk in the anime who tries to kill every good character.
i think it’s a bit unfair that everyone loves marida and hates angelo. they’ve actually got pretty similar backstories.
[WARNING BIG UC SPOILERS because i still can’t work out how to add readmores to a reblogged post…]
as a child, angelo was repeatedly abused (i read somewhere that he might have even been raped? but i’m not sure about that) by his stepfather. i guess if we’re doing the misery olympics, marida would probably still win that contest, but nevertheless the guy deserves a bit more sympathy from the UC fandom…
I understand why youre acting like an angry douche, Angelo.
But Marida’s backstory is the worst part of her character…
