Which series (live action/cartoon) gave you some of the best mindblow episodes?

With mindfuck episodes I would consider:
An episode that springs a huge plot twist on you while you wouldn't expect
Or an episode that is generally super weird and feels out of place (presumably if it is on the top of your list, comes to a great satisfactory conclusion)

What do you think makes for the best mindblow episodes?

This thread can contain spoilers.

I guess what I mean isn't that dreams can be a motivator. It's an important component of grit to keep a long term goal in mind.

But Akko and characters like her get handed a lot on a silver platter for little more than just closing their eyes and wishing harder. I guess it's meant to be symbolic and all that, but usually within the context of the stories it is real tangible power of some kind. I don't think that characters of these stories are entitled personality wise, but it sure makes them look it. I guess in my experience the world doesn't work that way. It portrays that dreams themselves are meant to materialize into something, rather than motivate. I think this applies to creative types as much as hard science/professional(?) types.

LWA is hardly the worst offender. It addresses my complaint more than once. I still liked it. But it goes through with the trope nonetheless. Perhaps I feel more sorrow for Diana than resentment for Akko.

that is certainly understandable, and i do get the complaint. i think part of it is that the story genre lends itself to that kind of fantasy becoming true. and in a world of magic, dreams and magical thinking actualize into reality.

what really helps kind of anchor akko for me is that somebody before her also had the exact same gifts given to her, and that is Chariot. she got the shiny rod, had the dreams of magic, and all the same chances. but she strayed from the path and lost herself in a way.

so i feel all the other characters and their arcs do bring a kind of balance and bouncing off point for her in a way.

and diana still got to realize her dreams too! she was just as much a part of that story as akko was! her smarts, talents, and efforts did not diminish her, and she was with akko in the finale. so i don't find sorrow for her in how she turned out, but rather for the lost time that she had.


Samurai Flamenco. Half of the fucking show.
I think after the 5th episode or so, it's a neverending roller coaster of mindfuckery.

>Futurama - The Sting
Ah yeah. That and the one with Bender's downgrade had the weirdest feel to me with their twists.

Might as well chuck in the Simpsons: Much as the show changed in tone and after a while steadily faded in quality, I can recall 3 that had an extra weird feeling to me:
-the one where they include riddles and Maggie accidentally up with nuns. Weird the whole time, esp. the gag ending
-the one where Krusty gets a new sidekick, princess whatshername. Weird the whole time, out of place ending, as if they shot the writers and replaced them with people who have no idea what the Simpsons are just for the ending.
-the one with the stranded whale
Super weird. I don't recall anything except the ending.

i am still in Taiwan, with my family. i am having a good time, but a hard day. i have a stomach bug, and have been bedridden. My family is fighting too. Usually i can help to defuse, but i am stuck in bed, and things are especially bad. Things are bring thrown around and there is much yelling.

Faithfulness to only one person in a relationship for all of time.. it just seems so unreasonable. I'm absolutely positive some people can pull it off, but largely.. feelings change! People go on about how short life is, but it can feel very long if you spend it with someone you don't love anymore. Especially if you feel pressured to keep lying and say you do love them

I read all these stories and hear from people about how they were "wronged" by their lover leaving an intimate relationship or marriage, and it just strikes me as so bizarre. Do they really want their lover to stay unhappy with and lie forever?

When someone leaves a marriage or a long-term relationship because of changed feelings, it's hard for me to see anyone as having done wrong. Has anyone here been the subject of feeling they were wronged by such a thing? Or has anyone here broken up with some one because their feelings changed?

I don't personally date, but the more I learn about how closely people tie their self-worth into their love lives, the more I'm glad I don't

Thats a lot of projecting for someone who raised the issue without being asked, I know what is troubling you.  If someone you are with is currently still hurting you and wont stop then you must not remain with that person.  My situation ended because of those hurtful things and only began again on basis of fixing those things and theyve been fixed years ago or the re-try would have ended years ago.  Do you understand?  Please do not remain in a deeply hurtful relationship Grace.  I know it is more complicated tho, especially for you.

I don't know the meaning of the word...but it has something to do with choosing to move into the forest and become homeless just to be with me, and other things that also might have happened in that early time can't cancel that, nor diminish the real concern and care she bestows on me now.  Im not perfect.

Why do people gotta put “phone” next to their name when they’re on the phone? I mean.... does it matter that you’re on the damn phone? I decided to humor myself and change the name. Maybe that’s the secret to more respect. I’ve seen Andrea on the phone.... moony on the phone...Tracer Bullet (phone).... Circuit Mane (phone)..... as if showing your status on the phone matters.

The holidays are now done, and all we have left is the vague memory of Holly, peppermint, rampant sales, sparkling wine, and cheap chinese food and already broken promises.

So let's try and get back into the normal routine and clear up the holiday cobwebs with a cup of our favorite drink of choice, Coffee in my case, and talk about whatever is on our mind.

hey guys check this shit out

now some of you may know that I am NOT a fan of Hazbin Hotel AT ALL

but that doesn't mean I still can't have fun with it. I found this little quiz yesterday that assigns you a Hazbin Hotel character. And since some of y'all seem to like this show for some reason, I thought you might appreciate it and have some fun with the quiz.

You can take it here: https://www.quotev.com/quiz/10956077/Which-Hazbin-Hotel-Character-are-you

So go ahead, take the quiz, get your character, and post it here! Then we can all judge each other, just like God intended. Also say if you feel like it's an accurate choice or not. Some of the questions on the quiz have some pretty silly answers, so you never know what you might get.

Personally, I got Crymini. She looks like a recolor of Vivzie's werewolf character, you know the one. To me, anyways. Now, I haven't seen the show, but based on the description, I'd say it's accurate.

Now you go do it you cowards. If you get Angel Dust I hear you die immediately.

I got Crymini too
I'll take it.
I am pretty 90s, rebellious and bitchy.

but Its a little hard to relate when that character is literally in the background for 5 seconds and has no speaking lines YET. Its confirmed she will be a character in the hotel later.

She kinda looks like a red Loona from Helluva Boss.

ALSO If you havent watched Hazbin Hotel YOU NEED TO THE EFFORT IS WORTH IT

So I've been struggling the past few months to motivate myself to start a drawing habit. Well more than that, I've wanted to learn to draw for as long as I can remember, but I've always set up so many road blocks for myself. I bought a tablet years ago and barely used it, I bought a newer, fancier tablet earlier this year and again have barely used it. But I think I finally got a plan to get me started. (I think most normal people simply put art on a page, but I'm not normal people!)

Here's the plan, we're starting with good ol pencil, pen, and paper. I think trying to learn how to use the tablet itself has been blocking me. We can do digital later. I want to use pen for most of it so I can't get thrown off by my perfectionism. Once a line is down, no more fixing it. And this is the important part, I have a hard time figuring out what to draw so I've decided to take that road block out of the way by going through all the Pokémon from number 1 all the way through 800+ whatever! I don't even like Pokémon that much, but lots of them are cute and there's a lot of variety to work with. I bought a stack of paper, and the plan is to find reference images and start practicing construction, composition, shapes, etc. I'm not gonna worry about making original poses (yet), I can copy what I find online so long as I'm not tracing it. I want to be able up construct the same image from scratch using basic shapes and such. I'll get more used to taking a character and creating something completely new with practice.

So, that's the plan, and I've already gotten started. I drew some bulbasaur, ivysaur, and started on venusaur (dude's got so many details!). I'll be using this thread to catalog the art journey, and keep myself accountable to doing the drawings. Feel free to drop in and say hi, comment on the art stuff, or whatever. I'd be happy to take suggestions and draw for people too, might as well, if you don't mind the quality being what it is!
