It was approximately 2:37 am, the house of the Sanders family as quiet as a cold night. Well, excluding the fast typing of a high schooler in his room. Logan Sanders sat at his desk, typing on his laptop quickly, eyes glued to the screen as his pupils followed his progress with every line.
“Hello to you too, Anthony. What did I say about throwing things in my house?” Anthony crossed his arms at the question, sitting in the chair his backpack hit, “‘Not to unless it’s absolutely necessary’.”
One reason why I love anime. The emotion of the voice acting is too strong
did this anime waifu just tear down the edgy pretentious pseudointellectual facades we construct for ourselves as an obfuscating substitute for actual worth of character and accuse us of being so wrapped up in our own insular self-validating atrophied emotional comfort zones that we can only relate to others through pop culture allusions and mental dominance contests instead of a genuine emotional connection between two human beings
what the hell man
at first i read the above explanation thinking it was just a bunch of long thrown in words meant to make something simple complicated….but that is the perfect explanation for what I just watched
It’s been mentioned many times before, but the voice actress did this in a SINGLE take… makes it all the more impressive
I reblogged this yesterday with no comment, but after watching the clip again… no. No, that response up there with all the big words?
That’s exactly what the character was telling her counterpart to knock off. Big words. Big words with the assumption that everybody listening or reading will understand or have the energy and means to research what they don’t. Big words that communicate a big ego and little consideration for others.
She’s telling him to come off his pedestal and talk to her as himself, with his own words - words she can understand, because no, she’s not a walking dictionary or thesaurus or history book or anything like that, and unlike him she also doesn’t pretend to be, even though she’s arguably just as “exposed” to all these things by way of his presence in her life as he is by way of his presence on the internet.
What is “obfuscating”? What is “insular”? What is “pseudointellectual”? Fine that you seem to know their definitions, but you aren’t addressing an audience that can or should be expected to know those things. For god’s sake, I do know those things and I still had to keep stopping to figure out what the hell was being said.
She doesn’t understand these things because he never tries to help her understand. She doesn’t understand why he thinks he’s educated and edgy just because he talks about blood and knows a little bit about this religion and that world issue. She very clearly wants to understand, but he’s so busy being clever that all she gets out of him is, “It’s really cool, but you wouldn’t understand it.”
So no, that… big jumble of words up there is not what’s going on. What’s going on is that an anime character just called the internet age on its bullshit.
And while she was at it, she threw some damn heavy shade at everybody who uses their entire stock of big words in casual settings without stopping to read the room and consider their audience.
I can’t believe I just watched the same conversation happen twice
#haha when you feel like you're bothering your friends #so you just leave them alone for like a few hours #and then when they start talking you just lurk #and then you realize they were just tired and/or busy #and now you feel like a dumbass #haha so relatable- #aj speaks#aj vents
