Current mood:Unrepentant
Entry tags:anime/manga, bitter so bitter, boo hoo, canon fodder, cons, crazy people, f_w is serious business, fan rage, fandom war, fandom: bleach, i see stupid people, look how much i don't care, lying liar that lies, manga, oh christ here we go again, outraged mice, pairing wars, person: yulieana, reading comprehension whut?, recipes in comments, serious business, she admitted it!, stop sharing your thoughts, taking it too seriously, thoughts on yaoi, too many fucking tags, wankers who will not shut up, what did bill whisper to scarlett?

FYI: IchiRuki are fucking SOULMATES, goddamn!
So there's this video about Bleach voice actors who were at Kawaii-Kon, an anime convention hosted in Hawaii, where they were questioned about possible romantic preferences for the young man they provide voices for. Johnny Yong Bosch (JYB) is the voice behind Kurosaki Ichigo for the English dub, while Morita Masakazu (MM) is the Japanese seiyū for the dashing hero. No, he's not really dashing. More like cranky.

the toobs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQfkhEK04jE

Then someone dared to ask the million-dollar question: do they prefer RUKIA or ORIHIME for Ichigo?

In summation, JYB & MM both said "Orihime." So there!

The IchiHime side of the fandom was in a celebratory mood. General reactions vary from "Omg, yey! =D =D" to "TAKE THAT, DETRACTORS!"

Unfortunately, they're not as funny as the scorned side, though. Watch the masses backpedal swiftly from expressing love for Morita-san for saying "Rukia, I love you" in English, omg! Expressions of disappointment towards Morita-san starts further down the thread, with accusations that the seiyū is a lying liar who just wants to make $$$.

Don't fear, guys! Annie, founder of the IchiRuki fanclub (FC) thread, claims that Ichigo made his choice and clearly, it's Rukia.

Of course, [info]debbiechan makes a post on her Bleachness comm. Cap here

[info]shireheart worries that the creator, Kubo Tite, will have Ichigo choose Orihime.

Chill out! [info]proglution says the translator was wrong, okay?! It's not like the panel translator did what she was paid to do and it's not like she knew Japanese or anything! With mad passion in defense of her ship, Proglution charges with compelling analysis!

"Okay, the more I discuss this with people, the more I realize that this is really, really, really a cultural barrier here that, coupled with the language, is making it hard for fans.

First and foremost, that panel translator was dead wrong by saying, “For Ichigo, it’s Orihime.” That is absolutely 100% not what he says. She did a very half-assed job in translating and she jumped on the shipping bandwagon quick. She paraphrases at the beginning of the video, leaves out things Morita says, and translates (incorrectly) in her apparent excitement."

[info]spatzkind reasonably asks the community "Why do we care?" since, in his/her recollection, Bleach is a shounen manga (print comics marketed for the male audience). FW's new-ish bff replies just as reasonably, of course. Thread was full of potential but sadly, it was frozen. Also, [info]shiroyuki_kun tries to tell them the same thing, but all in vain. Yes, this is me failing to add some level-headed points to this wank and I apologize. I'll sit in the corner for timeout later for going past my edit quota for the day.

Meanwhile, [info]bluespring expresses regret for ever being a part of Bleach fandom at all.

Also, fans? "Cannon" is a type of weapon. It got confusing for a while when discussion perspectives switched from potential pairings to field artillery.

Bonus references to Avatar: the Last Airbender wank here.

This has been a busy, busy week for Bleach fandom! I have some caps, but tinypic keeps re-sizing the images.

Finally, a friendly reminder to my fellow wankas: don't feed the trolls.

:throws cheese to mousey for collecting links:

Edit 1: Good morning! There is nothing like waking up to a fresh batch of edits and wankage.

First up: an anon calls their attention to our peaceful mockery of their insanity discussion. Bad mouse! While mouse thoughtfully gives them a hint to perhaps calm down or something, [info]sleepwalkerrrr provides us with a delicious helping of hypocrisy as a side dish. Substitute for hash browns, perhaps? Oh and yes, wankas can not socialize outside the keyboard. Who says we cannot?! In response to such helpful little elves, [info]debbiechan proceeds to freeze the entire thread while eating burritos. As Harry Truman said, "If you can't take the heat, then get out of the kitchen."

Anycakes, next up is a tip from anon. Further down the BA fanclub thread, a fan decides to send a Tweet to Kubo-san about Morita-san's reaction and baawwwwed about the possibility that IchiRuki was written for money.

Keep the tips coming, y'all. RL beckons, but I will post all edits as soon as I'm able.

Edit 2: Fandom Wank's BFF delivers! She gets her own cut link, bless her sweet heart. We've got it all wrong, wankas: Orihime is still second best compared to Rukia! Only the romantic definition of "soulmate" applies when it comes to IchiRuki . Thank you, [info]kuromitsu

Edit 3: Fandom Wank's name was dropped like it's hott. [info]jaseroque got a special mention for the translation.

Edit 4:
They really like being here. Oh heart, be still! [info]sleepwalkerrrr took some time off to introduce itself to the wank pool! :blows kisses: It's amazing that our special features completely miss the point of why they're here, but hey! More fun for everyone!

1-Up!: It decides that risking tendonitis from repetitive button-pushing is worth it. Spamming is its way of showing us that it doesn't care and it's not affected at all. Believe it. (*ETA - As of 04/25/2010, the spam wank has been deleted from [info]wank_report. But you can see the stupid referenced + some spam in mousey reporter's comment thread. Nothing about the spam was particularly note-worthy. It was just hilarious to see [info]sleepwalkerrrr embarrass itself.)

Edit 5: [info]debbiechan enabled comments again on April 23. Comments still reflect bitterness towards JYB.

The yaoi fans got the smackdown from JYB and MM, as well. tip from [info]tez!

I have one question: Where's Yulieana? It's not a Bleach shipping wank without her showing up and calling everyone who doesn't agree with her a "cowardly IchiOri".

Well, on one hand, it's not as if the opinions of the VAs are exactly going to change anything about the manga.

On the other hand... geez, over-react much shippers.

[Insert long rant and analysis why this somehow proves the inherent superiority of Orihime x Rukia, and also how people not seeing that are not only delusional, but also are evil evil people who plot to overthrow society]

I always thought the "stop sharing your thoughts" tag was for people in the comments who wouldn't stop sharing their very serious thoughts about the topic of the wank, or sometimes grudgewank. I'm confused now. :(

I love it when people start bringing out fandom cannon. They're much more mobile than regular artillery, and fanon is a readily available form of ammunition. It falls apart when they have to deal with common sense aerial bombardments, but that almost never happens.

First and foremost, that panel translator was dead wrong by saying, “For Ichigo, it’s Orihime.” That is absolutely 100% not what he says.

That's absolutely 100% nearly word-to-word what he said.

He did say something about "For me, it's (someone's name)," but I don't know Bleach so I don't know who he mentioned. I do like Morita so I am a bit curious about who he fanboys on the show, though.

I find it amusing how the fandom can be this divided and then some aspect of canon like the musicals writes Orihime out entirely and pimps Ichigo's and Rukia's relationship like fire...

Kubo's a devious bitch I guess.

Arrgh, he totally does say that it's Orihime. I translate:

"As for myself, I like Rangiku! As for Ichigo... definitely Orihime. As far as Rukia's concerned, she's not just his friend... well, it's more like she's another version of himself."

Which very much implies "as opposed to his girlfriend". There really isn't much wriggle room there!

Man, Bleach wank is becoming a reliable source of hilarity these days. This neo-Harmonian vibe is really hilarious, especially when you've got pretty much everyone from the writer on down saying, explicitly, that it's wrong. I'm amazed these people aren't having aneurysms from the force of self-deception required. In the words of my personal favorite death god: "SNH SNH SNH"

Honestly, I would not be surprised if one day I opened up a chapter of Bleach and it was Ichigo getting married and then there was Kenpachi with his hair in a perfectly coiffed updo and a frilly train and Isshin was sitting on one of the pews weeping with joy into a kerchief while Hitsugaya sprinkled flower petals up and down the aisle. Then Matsumoto would complain about her boobs.

Afterwards, Kubo would log onto Twitter and giggle about it.

Rukia/Ichigo shippers (and really, shippers in general) really need to learn that the worst thing that can possibly happen to a romance ship in a shounen series is for it to become canon, since the shounen author who can handle het romance in a skillful and satisfying way (particularly, satisfying to western readers) is few and far between. Trust me!

Second, Morita is a liar, and he does that for the money.

:D I can just see Morita wearing a hat and sunglasses, standing in a dark alley and accepting filthy money from The Ichigo x Orihime Sekrit Society For World Domination.

I believe that if Kubo would go IchiOri, I would SEE it. I may be a hardcore IchiRuki fan, proud of her ship, but I can smell canon where it belongs.

Wow, what a beautiful example of logic, objectivity and unbiasedness.

The very fact that someone presented an academic paper on the very subject of shipping in Bleach today

.........do I want to know?

Lesson #1 in denial: when the seiyu isn't saying what you want him to say, blame the translator.

After all, it's not like it's her job to translate what he's saying. Or like she's paid to do it. Or like paraphrasing is actually part of the job so the translation doesn't take four hours. No, obviously, she's an incompetent shipper who wants to hide OUR SEIYU'S TRUE LOVE FOR RUKIA. ARGH. *head explodes*

I'd guess this would not be the time to mention that the Latin American actor who does Ichigo's voice for the Latin American dub, when asked the exact same question answered "Neither, they both are basket cases. Ichigo would be a lot better with Ishida", would it?

That is absolutely 100% not what he says. She did a very half-assed job in translating and she jumped on the shipping bandwagon quick.

It's a CONSPIRACY, you guys!

Anyway, if there's one thing I've learned from Doctor/Donna shippers (of whom I'm not a member and more of an ally, unless it's a hilarious FWB situation), is that it's easier to find your own corner of the net to write to your heart's desire than to argue with and wank about the canon ship. These peeps could learn a thing or two.

So...Bleach used to be about shinigami and junk, didn't it? The last several chapters of Aizen babbling put me into a coma, so I must've missed the part where Bleach suddenly turned into a shoujo romance manga. I suppose it must've happened around the same time Harry Potter became an epic romance.

I could simply cry over the fact that this simple moment of Kawaii_Kon fun - one that has fed more energy into this ongoing perfect storm of wank - took place barely a five minute's walk from my apartment!

No, the spooge was not falling from the skies that day: I the convention center is fully enclosed.

Okay, I admit this is my extreme naivete, but shipping was never a big part of my fandom experience, so the whole practice kinda baffles me. That said, I can academically get behind it, rooting for this couple or that couple to do it like bunnies end up together, even if I don't see why it's a major component of a person's enjoyment of the story.

But what I really, really don't get is why the fans here give a shit what a couple of voice actors think. How are these people even tangentially involved in directing the characters' arcs? What, do they get script pages in the sound booth, scan through them, and throw tantrums like 6-year-olds if their characters are "doing it wrong"? Are they standing over the creator's shoulder with an ax (like Robert Howard claimed Conan) did and saying, "This how things are going to go, bitch"? And accusing the translator of error or lying? Really? Really?

It's too early in the morning right now for alcohol, but I need something to kill these brain cells before I decide hunting these people down is a good use of my time.

Ohhhhhh I had a feeling this was going to end up here the second I saw it on ye olde f-list. If there's anything I do NOT understand, it's how this fandom can take one comment and run with it like someone lit their asses on fire. I was too busy going OH MY GOD HOW NOT FAIR IS IT THAT JYB AND MORITA WERE AT THE SAME FREAKING CON AND I COULD NOT GO.

And then I blissfully imagined JYB saying this. I still intend to have this happen some day.

Does anyone doubt that if the VAs had spoken in favor of the other ship, it would have been loudly trumpeted as "official" by the very same people?
