it just got so much better
That’s a metaphor, son! You missed it! It flew right by ya!
I’m watching Monsters Inc. with Pulp Fiction subtitles
Just finished drawing this today, I was very happy with the outcome so I wanted to post it here on Tumblr!
Patrick Bateman: Do you like Naruto?
Paul Allen: It’s OK.
Patrick Bateman: The early arcs were a little too romance-focused for me, but when the Chuunin Exam arc came out in 2003, I think it really came into its own, commercially and artistically. The whole arc has clear, crisp action, and a new amount of interesting characters they really give the show a big boost. Its been compared to Dragonball Z, but I think Naruto has a far more dynamic, engaging cast.
Paul Allen: Hey Halberstram.
Patrick Bateman: Yes, Allen?
Paul Allen: Why are there copies of the style section all over the place, d-do you have a dog? A little chow or something?
Patrick Bateman: No, Allen.
Paul Allen: Is that a rain coat?
Patrick Bateman: Yes it is! In ‘10, Kishimoto released this, The Invasion of Pain, his most accomplished arc. I think his undisputed masterpiece is the Naruto vs. Pain arc, with action so stuning, most people probably don’t pay attention to the themes. But they should, because it’s not just about the power of friendship, and the importance of peace, it’s also a personal statement about the manga itself.
[raises axe above head]
Patrick Bateman: Hey Paul!
[he bashes Allen in the head with the axe, and blood splatters over him]
Patrick Bateman: TRY GETTING A RESERVATION AT DORSIA NOW, YOU FUCKING STUPID BASTARD! YOU, FUCKING BASTARD!
Sums up their personalities pretty well.
Eddy: I can achieve anything
Edd: there’s a logical way to achieve what I want
Ed: there’s nothing standing in my way
Eddy hopping over the fence indicates his willingness to “cheat” the system, or to take a shortcut. Much like his schemes, it might end up being more work, but in his mind, cheating is the best way to get ahead.
Edd goes the neat and logical way, he’s straight forward. BUT, note that he closes the gate behind him rather than leaving it open. He’s incredibly meticulous and even if it’s more convenient to leave it open for anyone coming in behind him, he has to leave things neat, tidy and as he found them.
Ed is also is straight forward, he in fact is using the MOST direct route. But this route is one no one else would consider because it seems completely nonsensical. Which sums him up pretty well. The fact that it works for him is also fun to note. In general his earnestness and determination carries him through situations that most people would be stopped by.
