all i’ve done in 2013 was become more gay
Our lovely cow is kinda discreet and wants to keep some privacy, that’s why ;) She never publicly appeared in conventions, and during award ceremonies people are asked not to take pictures, either. Same during her trip in France in January - and so several French fans were keysmashing because they may have seen her without knowing it, ahah. But I think this is a sensible stance, though, and it’s really understandable she wants to keep her family and herself away from view.
arakawanews is a great blog about her and her work, if you want to ask some more info :D
The only two confirmed pictures of Arakawa are the ones you can find here, and there’s some doubt going on about the one you can find there - it came from an obscure Portugese blog and the source was never confirmed. (And this one is actually Romi Park.)
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR PRESENTATION <3
I feel like Ghibli is a good bet because they’re fairly non-threatening but also have interesting and complex female characters. and I just love rough-and-tumble little girls like Lilo.
Ghibli is especially interesting as most of the children here have been raised on Disney movies and every time I show up with one it’s wow new movies. It worked wonders on my sister regarding roles so I hope it will be bale to help ?? (though “is that a japanese manga, urgh” is to expected, but.)
Wreck-it Ralph was also nice, too?? But also yeah, i too would suggest Ponyo and Kiki.
It was !! But the children are … not allowed to play video games nor watch TV (there’s actually no TV just very innoncent DVDs) so that would be quite terrible of me, I think ;)
Maybe one of the lighter Ghibli films like Ponyo or Kiki’s Delivery Service? Or a non-princessy Disney like Lilo & Stitch?
That would probably be the best option as I … think they’ve already watched Totoro - I just hope that Kiki being a witch won’t, like, be a real issue ?? Thanks for the rec !!

I have similar relatives, and they wouldn’t even allow Spirited Away :| Depending on their age, Summer Wars might be good?
Nice idea, thanks ! But Summer Wars has more complex layers than it appears and I wouldn’t them so miss it, though the whole family thing would speak to them. And I own the DVD. Hm.
Et pourquoi pas Rebelle?
faux bête, en espérant que le petit mâle, du haut de ses 5 piges, ne se sente pas floué dans ses hormones !! (Mais Merida tire à l’arc, merde, ça attire tout le monde ça non)
I’m baby-stting on tomorrow for a family I’ve already baby-sitting in
(is that the good preposition) and to sum it up they’re very radical catholics who are like super homophobic (ie protesting the anti same-sex marriage) and very into genderstereotypes (like the mother actually punished her 5yo boy for playing with girls instead of boys). And usually the mother asks to put everyone in front of movie and FOR ONCE I’d love show them something they don’t know and that might open them just a tiny little bit to other thing than boys are blue girls are pink. Knowing that everything too straightforward (ahah straight) will be duly reported to the mother by the children themselves, any idea about a short/long movie I could show them ?
