Sometimes I think back to the expectations I had during when I was first watching Jatp and I’m just flabbergasted. Like to be fair the way that it just constant broke my expectations, proved them wrong constantly could be why I love it so much. Since I went in with those expectations and proved them wrong it made me love it so much more bc they did something different.
Even before I started it, I had looked up like the cast’s insta’s and stuff before watching it just bc I was curious and I had looked on Owen’s and saw this picture:
And I remember going “Hmm... a female lead and 3 male leads... hmmmmm... bound to be a love triangle here” granted I did know that Alex is gay going into it but that even still made me go “Ah, the other two are definitely going to be in a love triangle for main character” even more.
I think about that now and it is so strange to think about given how I know how Reggie and Luke are and it’s just so weird now. There are just all these tropes that have been set up by media that you just go into Jatp being like “Oh I know how this is gonna go” but then it doesn’t go that way and you’re just so surprised.
During when I was watching (for the first time) I was just saying to myself how I thought it was about to go bc of these tropes I had in my brain that we’re soooo used to seeing. But then, none of those happened and shocked me so much.
A show where mean girl isn’t just mean to main character for the sake of it? A show where mean girl’s boyfriend has a spin? A show where there’s not just an LGBTQ+ character just so they can say they have an LGBTQ+ character? Etc. etc.
You just go in with all these expectations of tropes that we’ve been conditioned to see in media and then when Jatp breaks those it’s so cool to watch. Then that means that you can’t guess what’s going to happen and it makes you so invested to see what actually does happen
just a reminder that i don’t fill out interest forms :-)
That moment of pride when you find out the jjba fankid tag has “NaraRox” as a related tag..

[Image ID: a post by me that says “chicken nuggets good / soft meat warmed in microwave / divine like sunrise” with the tags “chicken nuggets”, “haiku”, “star has thoughts”, and “poetry”. The text is in dark grey comic sans on a cream background. The tags are in blue.]
I both love and hate the way I’ve set my default formatting because, on one hand, I can actually read the stuff, but, on the other hand, I’m constantly fighting that ingrained “grrr aaaa comic sans bad! this color scheme sucks!!! i hate it!!!” that was taught to me in school lol
me? indecisive over what graphic to make this week? it’s more likely than you think
