these kids are precious and I wanna punch them in the face
so, what is your opinion on haiji towa?
im assuming IM being asked this, so.
let’s address the elephant in the room: haiji’s a pedophile. I gave him the benefit of the doubt when I first played AE years ago, thought he meant 18 y/olds, but he calls himself a “"lolicon”“ in official material regarding Kotoko, so yeah, he’s a pedo.
That said, a character being a pedo isn’t an inherently bad thing. If they are an antagonist, if the author is trying to tell a certain kind of story, then some characters might be pedophiles in the same vain some characters may be abusers, murderers, etc.
There’s a distinction between a bad-moral character (this character is evil or "bad” in the material, however you may think of them as interesting, but obviously not condoning their actions) and bad-story characters (this character can be good, evil, pure, deranged, or anything in between. But the point is, you believe they are a badly written character or a character who is bad for the story. You will typically dislike a character whom you think of as badly written, but not always).
Haiji obviously fits the first profile. He is a very amoral character. As for the second, that’s much more subjective, and I think…I’m not sure.
He’s an asshole, for sure. Even disregarding the fact he’s a pedophile, he still worked against Komaru and Toko yet relied on them when he was helpless, he was a cowardly leader, he contributed to Monaca’s abuse, he was unwilling to take responsibility for a lot of things, and he wanted to murder brainwashed children. Granted, after the trauma he suffered regarding the whole situation, that last point is more complex, but it doesn’t excuse the other stuff.
So, yeah, his character is a piece of shit that deserves his teeth knocked in. I’d say the same thing about many horrible-personality characters who I actually like, like Light Yagami or Junko Enoshima. They have committed atrocities and deserve a kick to the shin.
But, with Haiji, do I like him despite this? Do I think he’s a good character for the story?
The role Haiji plays, in all honesty, isn’t very important. He exists to be an obstacle for our main characters, he exists so we can have more insight on Monaca and the Towa industry. He needs the plot, not the other way around. His dynamic with Monaca is interesting, because it let’s us see a man who abused his little sister and yet is still an acting “"good guy”“. However, I think this would have worked a lot better if Haiji was actually, you know, good. He wants to stop the children, and that’s great, but his actions don’t really speak to that. If he was a good guy who tried all he could, aided Toko and Komaru from the start, actually influenced the plot on his own terms, but so happened to also be a pedo and an abuser, then I’d think he could potentially be a lot more interesting.
But, as it stands, I don’t like him as a character, I don’t think he did too much for the story, and yes, he is pretty damn evil.
If Masaru and Nekomaru don't have some kind of coaching moment I will be sad
EXACTLY….Masaru should get to train with Nekomaru and Akane and Sakura it is what he deserves
I can't wait to see the WoH have good role models. I'm gonna play as Masaru so much XD
BITCH ME TOO THE FUCK!!!
WHATS THE SCREENSHOT FROM OH MY GOD
IT’S FROM NINTENDO E3!! THE THREE MAINLINE DR GAMES ARE BEING PORTED TO SWITCH WITH A NEW GAME WHICH IS A EXPANSION OF TDP FEATURING ALL THE CHARACTERS INCLUDING THE WOH!!!!!!!!
i stumbled across this in my activity feed on an old post:
which is 5000 years old at this point and so the fighting in the notes is probably even older but
and like. I don’t mean to be rude but why is it worth your time to get so upset over smth a 13 year old drew. It’s literally super fucking old at this point LOL. If I recall correctly 13 year old me DID intend to make this a shipping thing, since I don’t use “girlfriend” as a platonic thing being gay myself. However I will admit that’s a clever theory/interpretation so if you want to run with it be my guest
in any case, I wanna state here and now that any fighting/drama/whatever you wanna call it regarding shipping monaca with any of the WoH will just be ignored by me. whether you think it’s morally unjust or not is not something I need to expend my energy “defending” because honestly I don’t care. I think it’s pretty obvious the ship isn’t healthy. None of the Warriors are wholesome 100 chungus keanu. Doesn’t mean I can’t draw it for a joke or any other reason. Once upon a time I may have engaged and defended the ship/my actions of drawing it but being a little older, I realized the sensible thing is just to say “hey, it’s my blog, I can do what I like, block me.”
so yeah. im gonna go eat fried chicken now
About that one ask. What did nagisa mean when that person was on thin ice?
The original asker said they were an adult, yet wished to be a kid i believe. As you know the warriors including Nagisa hate/kill all adults, but in that post he allowed that one based on the conditions of them wanting to remain childlike, but only barely (hence “you are on thin fucking ice”)
if you don’t know what the expression itself means, it’s basically saying you are allowed/accepted, but just barely. For example, if somebody is only allowed 5 mistakes and has used up all 5, but is able to talk their way out of one of them, they’d be considered on “thin ice”– you can also think of it as actual thin ice, as thin ice would only barely support you and could break at any time.
Could you please draw Masaru trying to deep-fry a tv thanks 👽
BONE APP THE TEETH
Hey, I wonder if the v3 character exists at the time of Junko who probably last for years on the show. Would that make them kids? And if that the case then who would more likely be in the WoH? I would say kokichi, after all he does become the ultimate supreme leader.
ummm i know nothing about v3 but aren’t they like, the same age as the previous casts? so wouldnt they be like 18 or smth?
but for the sake of your ask, i think they’re too old anyway. Komaru wasn’t an adult yet, prob the same age as the v3 cast, and the warriors still hunted her. Masaru himself acknowledges she’s not an adult but a “to-be”, so she’s basically a demon anyway in their eyes. same would apply to kokichi and the rest i’m sure (
hence why jataro set shuichi and kokichi on fire on this blog)
Hey there! Just wanted say that I am a HUGE fan of your Tumblr and love all of your DR comics with the little hope hellspawns. Have the warriors of hope heard the rumblings that each of them represents one of the monokubs?
thank you so much! It’s been so fun running this for 4 whole years
actually! The funny thing is, I was one of the main people advocating that theory back in the day!! That brings memories back, man…I remember when v3 was first announced, and I was like “those cubs look like the kids!!” so i joined in on discussions about it here on tumblr :) unfortunately, I wiped my old main clean so I don’t have the posts anymore beyond a few screenshots I think?
Okay, so I didn’t have any screens after checking my folder *rage* but I swear I was there!!!! All i have is a screenshot of a different person’s post on the matter
sadly, they are deactivated now, but I guess it proves my point? Anyway, im so mad they were NOT the WoH. V3 would have been good then maybe…
this is now the blog’s official anthem
here to bring you a semblance of an overarching plot
masaru please answer me do youknow leon kuwata??????
suddenly, the v3 characters show up! what do the WoH do?
sorry! I have no idea what you’re talking about
Hey Mod hope life is treatin’ ya well! Life may be tough right now with the way everything is but you got this! Life may have it’s up and downs but, as DR likes to repeat, there is always Hope at the end of despair. Just keep on remembering that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, it just might take some work to get there. ~ The OG Dress Anon
thank you dear anon! Sorry for my hella late response, but I agree <3 life has been all over the place, but it feels good to be back! >:3
was thinking of updating the blog this week and then tumblr fucked up asks. Seriously, w h y.
femboy friday is tomorrow. u ready?
LIKE I make a power point in regards to the sibling chart?? i mean bet i’ll do it
it has been SO LONG..
The Family Tree™
happy belated halloween I AM ALIVE
thanks!! I know that feel, i’m that kid too lmao.
But I wanna level with you and everyone else for a second cuz im acutely aware of my terrible update schedule and think it’s kind of unfair that i leave everyone in the dark.
I’m sure most everyone has suspected this by now, but I’m not really in the DR fandom anymore. That’s not to say I don’t like the games—I think I’ll always love dangan ronpa. That said, I don’t really make much fan content for it in my free time anymore besides this blog. That doesn’t mean this blog is dead. I have no intention of ending it anytime soon. Just because I’m not in the fandom anymore doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy drawing these characters (cuz the WoH are just too good <3<3<3)
But because I’m not in the fandom, I’ve created other blogs for other things I enjoy, so I also have to update those as well. Furthermore, right now, I’m just utterly swamped with work. I’m at the age where I will be graduating highschool in a year or two (i made this blog when I was in middle school, can you believe that!!!) and because of this I have a lot of work. Not just school, which is already a lot, but I’m also taking Japanese classes and doing commission work on the reg as an artist and animator. Combined with drawing my own comics and updating other blogs (and my mental health being a bit shaky and causing me to have to take long breaks) I hope you can understand why I’m updating this blog at a snail’s pace. Life is pretty busy :P
I hope to finish my commissions that I have queued up first, which may take a month, and then get to a steady and comfortable place in my schoolwork so I’m not falling behind or anything, and then be able to focus on this blog once again. I may try to interject updates here and there into my schedule but it may not be as frequent as you or I would like it to be.
That’s currently where I’m at, I know I keep saying I try to update this blog but it seems life always comes down on me, lol. So I’m not dead!!! Just busy af. Hopefully I can return to a good schedule with this blog and make more comics for years to come :)
P... powerpoint... slideshows???
1. i disagree with your url at my very core
2. this ones a parody i think but they all pretty much looked like this
