    Isn't it interesting how we're always speaking of the dehumanisation that comes with the curse and how it affects the zodiac literally and metaphorically but now the show is really getting to how Akito herself is also a victim of that...like I knew Akira played a part in how he encouraged her delusions, but seeing the scene play out you realise that the specific wording he chose in his death scene kinda implied he never really saw akito as a person either? Like when Ren said she was just a toy to him that was most definitely wrong, but the fact he kept emphasising how special akito was feels particularly unsettling when he adds that she being special makes HE and REN special. It kinda feels like he was trying to convince himself he'd done right by Ren after all, because the product of their union was special or something, I'm not sure.

    But it's so interesting, like, when Akito said she was the one who was an 'other' and that she was raised in a way to not know things she was right!! God might be 'human' but every adult in the main state played a part in completely stripping Akito of her humanity as well. Everything about the way she was brought up served to completely alienate her from the people around her and any world beyond the Sohma and the bonds of the curse. They created this terrible cycle where Akito was said to be above others and someone 'needed' but essentially she was the one who needed the zodiac the most because she was never allowed to have any identity beyond that!!!

    She basically had two ideas of how to view herself and both were awful; The first option is Akira is right: she is a special child and everyone must love her, which is 'good'. But also she literally can never be seen for herself and has to live with the knowledge that every day she's putting up a mask and playing her "head of the family" role under the implicit threat that she might be abandoned if she fails to meet the expectations placed on her. Or the second option, which unarguably scares her the most, that is Ren is right. There is nothing special about her and the bonds are fake, but that also means she is then something that can easily be discarded or abandoned because nothing ever suggested she could be loved had she not been 'special'. And the conflicting part is everything about her situation seemed to validate both views! Akira and the staff knew she was 'special' and thus 'loved' her, but Ren, her mother, never acknowledged the bounds or subsequently Akito's worth and actively despised her. This painted a very clear picture in which people could either adore her as someone 'special' or abandon her as a 'fraud'.

    So the moment Akira died Akito was faced with a very terrible choice: either completely take on her role as God and give up being a child, or accept the supposedly imminent abandonment that'd follow if she didn't comply. So she obviously clinged to that role with everything she had! And as Yuki pointed out, although she had a temper and clearly learned to look down on the zodiac as part of her role as God, she wasn't as vicious before. What really changed her was Kureno's curse breaking and the realisation that even if she played 'right' the future of abandonment Ren threatened her with was a very real possibility. Akito couldn't handle the thought of the curse breaking because by that point, she was already convinced being God was all she could ever be. I could go on about how she eventually became more and more desperate in her attachment and further lost herself by reenacting her relationship with her parents with the zodiac ( men should adore her and comfort her and give her special attention / women are competition and stir up her abandonment issues ) but I think that's enough.

    She's just so *shakes fist* thematically relevant to the themes of the show, a representation of the worst sides of the curse and the spiral of sadness that is the sohma and also a perfect foil to Tohru 😔 I just love akito AAAAAAH

    It's kinda wild how many anime onlies on Reddit and even in reactions kinda side more with Ren / view Akito as being worse than her. Many of the commentators and reactors are men. While many manga readers and commentators here on Tumblr and such are women and tend to be less agreeable with Ren / tend to view her as being worse than Akito.

    There are, of course, exceptions. Just talking generally here. I'd imagine that part of it is because Ren is hot and sexy in appearance, a MILF, while Akito is known to be a woman, but is still very male presenting in appearance. And the other factor is knowing the full story and even Furubana, for some, vs. not knowing the full story yet.

    Also, no shade or anything. I just find this difference to be rather interesting and it is something that has been on my mind since S3 started.

    The inner turmoil caused by starting a new show and wanting desperately to check out the fandom but also wanting to avoid spoilers because you’re only six episodes in. Also, hi, I’m Farscape trash now.

    I have 2 very important questions for star wars fandom !!:

    1) why shipping one quite abusive and a little incestish but het pairing is normal and it's canon and y'all ok with it but you hate people for shipping two gay pairings because they are abusive and incestish ?? breathe and let people ship who tf they want, it's not that deep.

    2) since A when art deco by lana del rey is unofficial hymn of star wars and literally in half of playlists?

    no hate or sarcasm is implied. i sincerely ask.

    I’m torn because in my heart, Rir has like longish pale pink hair. It’s been a headcanon of mine for eons it feels. But I can’t deny that this dark fluffy pixie cut is super adorable and is winning me over something fierce. :’l Joy.

    I’ve also been thinking during this play-through about her parents and I once again have a lot of Sad Feelings about Ren and Anssi’s tragic lives. :’c Ren definitely is the the main inspiration between Rir’s love for computers and programming though. I can totally see him being an under the radar hacker type who quietly skirted the law in his youth (because like father, like child~).

    Also decided that Rir like definitely has fifteen tamagotchi knock-offs hidden in her locker or cabin at like all times. She finds them neat (and I feel like her first one could be like a starting point for her combat drone later on?? Rir loves that thing so much and I think it’d be cute to tie it in with her younger days somehow).

    #rir shepard #just some random little thoughts #def love her being really into tamagotchis though #like ren gave her her first #one as a child because they couldn’t do pets #and rir just loved it to death #gabe plays mele
