The Death and Life of Erza Scarlet, ch 25 pt 2
“You did fine yesterday,” Rukia said impatiently.
“That was… I dunno, dumb luck?” Ichigo said. The memory of it was a bit hazy, almost a blur. He had felt strong, powerful, he had felt right… but now, in the daylight, where it was no longer fight or die, he felt hesitant, even afraid. Tatsuki was right- it was a whole new world, and the thought of being enlisted as a soldier in it didn’t appeal to him.
Rukia shook her head. “Trust me, your strength is far above that of a typical human being. Stronger than many shinigami, even. You won’t be dealing with anything too dangerous. I’ll just give you some basic training, just as a temporary solution, and we’ll-“
“No,” Ichigo said flatly. “Sorry, but no. This is your mess, not mine. I’m not going to stick my neck out because you messed up. If it were just… something smaller, but, ah,” He scratched his head; he felt like a prick s

The Death and Life of Erza Scarlet, ch 25 pt 1
Life was funny. Kurosaki Ichigo, fifteen years of age, had no real cause to complain, really- he had been raised with two loving parents, his teen years so far had carried considerably less angst than TV dramas would lead you to believe, and he got good grades in school. He’d fight punks who singled him out for his hair every now and then, but his more than proficient karate usually made that a very one-sided affair, and the two times so far he had got busted up badly, his auntie had hunted the guilty parties down and delivered beat-downs of epic proportions- his auntie did not mess around, didn’t care if you were a girl or a boy, a child or an adult, and the people at his school whispered with terror about the demon woman who had adopted Orihime and looked out for that Kurosaki punk like one of her own.
Yes, life was not at all bad, for a period where things were supposed to be hard, frightening and confusing. But it was funny. There were hiccups. Like the ghosts, for exam

The Death and Life of Erza Scarlet, ch 24 pt 2
Suin Shizuo was standing leaned against a kitchen cabinet. He had an urge to pace back and forth; this whole operation had made his mind race. But he was a leader, the patriarch of the last Japanese Quincy clan, and he had to stay composed at all times. This operation was the first serious undertaking since his ascension, his chance to prove he was strong, decisive, unafraid. There were precious few purebloods left- his traitor cousin Ryuken aside, only he and four more were pure, and would have to breed with the best among their servants to keep the clan strong. Ten servants had come with them, meaning almost the entire clan was here.
“My lord,” one of the servants said, walking in and interrupting his musings, “the children are… restless. Kago and Suki would like instructions on what to do.”
“Do I need to tell them how to wipe their behinds as well?” Shizuo snapped. “They are hostages- put them in their place.”
“Yes, my lord

The Death and Life of Erza Scarlet, ch 24 pt 1
As they sped through town, Erza’s mind raced. She was hardly the most stoic of people; like most from Fairy Tail she was passionate, if not wearing emotion at the sleeve then at least keeping it close. But a long life in service to the Gotei had allowed her to keep a level head in dangerous situations, far more so than somebody like Masaki would be able to. Poor Masaki- Erza felt the same outrage as she did, the same fear, anger and determination to find the children, but she was all too aware that a mother’s instinct was that much stronger. Ichigo, Yuzu and Karin were her children; they had grown in her womb, been nursed and nurtured by Masaki from their youngest age, and now they were taken, for purposes unknown. She held up fairly well, circumstances considered, although Erza suspected that just like she herself did, she was trying very hard not to think about what could be happening to the kids at this time.
In mere minutes- which felt like years- they reached Urahara

Was just informed that Zack Snyder has dropped Justice League to deal with the sorrow of his daughter having killed herself. On the one hand I feel sorry for him, because I know what grief feels like. On the other hand, as a moviegoer, I'm kind of relieved. Maybe Joss Whedon can salvage this after all?
OK, so that was episode 1. Not bad, actually. That was... good. About as subtle as warhammer 40 000 (which, for reference, is a setting all about fistfucking aliens and demons with handheld RPG launchers and actual fists that can punch through tanks), but good.

Also, All Might, AKA Not Steve Rogers. "Texas Smash". Red, white and blue background. Like I said... not subtle.
Katsuki Bakugou (thank you google): Dio Brando fucked Joffrey Baratheon, spawning an unholy union of blond, petty smugness and overt evil.
Aaaaand Joffrey Baratheon is the asshole rival type. This is gonna be fun.

(And I'm not sure whether that was sarcasm or not. Time will tell.)
OK so. 80% of people have superpowers. And also there are superheroes who are... paid based on the work they do? Guys is that not obviously a super flawed and exploitable system that incentivizes glory-hounding cuntery?

Interests
The afternoon of this last Friday, a truck was driven into a store front in Stockholm, killing four and injuring fifteen. Little is known about the exact details. Currently, an uzbekistani man is under arrest on suspicion of involvement; nothing is yet known about whether it was some terrorist wannabe, or part of a planned action by a larger group like ISIS or al-qaeda. 

It's a tragedy. But it could have been so, so much worse. Imagine if it had been a bomb in a crowded area? How many would have died then?

It's a tragedy, but at the same time it fills me with hope. Because in the wake of the event, not only did the police react with speed and efficiency, sealing off all of the inner city and dispensing all of their resources to tackle the threat head on, not only did our leadership face the issue directly with dignity and clarity, but the effect of the attack wasn't hate and fear- but humanitarianism.

For those left stranded in the city, private citizens began to open their homes. People offered free food to those who needed it. Some offered free rides back home to the suburbs. In a time of crisis, fear and uncertainty, my fellow Swedes came together and supported one another. In the wake of this tragedy- which thankfully didn't reap more lives than four- the legacy will not be terror, not fear, not anger, but civilian courage where it matters the most. 

It gives me hope. Hope that maybe the far right won't win through populist rhetoric and fear mongering. Hope that common decency and charity is not only alive, but natural.

^See this? It's funny, sure, but the image of two people recycling during a terror crisis also speaks a powerful message: life goes on. Terror won't curb us.

By the way, I have an idea for a Sucker Punch Expanded Universe:

Sucker Punch Expanded Universe

And yes, the aforementioned idea of harvested DNA from aborted embryos, zygotes, and gametes to create new superheroes will be used in-universe in this concept.

Hey there! :) Just thought I would drop a anime recommendation for you. Ever heard about My Hero Academia? It's currently one of the more popular ongoing titles in Shonen Jump, aside from One Peace of course. Basically, imagine world of superpowers  where about 80% of the world's population are empowered and heroism has actually become a recognised and commodified job. Currently about 140 chapters in total and rather fast pacing when compared to older titles.

I've heard the name, yes- I think draconichero (on of my best friends online) likes it a lot. An interesting premise; feel free to tell me more.

I will just list the pros:

-Great art and character design
-Distinctive powers and variety of scenarios for characters to be used in.
-Very entertaining :)
-Great supporting characters
-Compelling main character and mentor figure
-Compelling world of heroes/villains, often shown & told.
-Fairly quick pace of about 10-15 chapters per arc, but doesn't skimp out on character development, as well as the various sides and motives for those wanting to be a hero (altruism, family expectation/rebellion, inspiring others etc.)

Cons:
-Up to about 140 chapters and ongoing Season 2
-Slower pace in anime, not getting as much material done as it should have done.

Hope this helps. :)

Those are all good and such, but I'd rather you told me more about the plot.

Yo, I've been getting into paleontology again, and I've been learning a lot of crazy shit about it. Apparently we actually know what the coloration of some prehistoric animals were! www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTodrQ…

Also this is a cool channel and its good for a science fix. I just thought you might be interested, since you like me are undoubtedly a man of culture who enjoys science and dinosaurs :lol:
