i am josuke and josuke is me
JOTARO YOU JUST KICKED A PUPPY
The fact they’re dragging Stardust out over a year is actually killing me because after Part 2 my fav parts are 4&6 and everyday I have to wait to see Josuke&Jolyne animated is another day I die inside.
Jojos’ stand figures as of the end of July
in which the school play turns into JoJo-hime’s Bizarre Adventure
Sanji is such an imperfect character. He’s so, so imperfect with his over abundant chivalry and perversion, with his homophobia/transphobia, with his mistreatment of men. He’s really not perfect by any stretch of the imagination.
But Sanji is a really amazing character. He loves his nakama, and he really does trust them to have the strength to take care of themselves, even the girls (hence leaving Kalifa to Nami). He’d give his life to any cause he felt was worth it without batting an eye. He’s self sacrificing, throwing himself head first into situations that could get him killed without even a hint of hesitation. He’s empathetic and kind, not just to his nakama but to complete strangers as well. He wouldn’t let his worst enemy starve, because he remember how horrible and helpless that felt. His back story is very defining for the person he has become. He has this huge, impossible, myth of a dream that he never gave up believing in no matter how many times he was told it wasn’t real. He’s a grown man who still has that heart of a boy who believes.
Absolutely none of his good traits excuse any of his bad ones. He is flawed, and that, to me, is what is so amazing about the characters in One Piece. They can have these huge, terrible flaws, but that doesn’t make them bad people. They are still characters you can love and accept, even if you can’t really love their bad sides. That’s how people are. No one is perfect, some people have horrible flaws, but that doesn’t make them less worthy of love.
My one hope for Sanji as the series progresses is that he can grow as a character. Not in terms of strength, because we know he’s strong, but as a person. That he can overcome his flaws, or at least come to terms with them. Sanji reminds me of a child, still stubborn and naive. His way is probably the right way and he’ll throw a fit if you don’t agree. I’d love to see him grow up, see his flaws, admit he might be wrong. I think Sanji’s character still has a long way to go in terms of development, and I hope Oda allows him to get there.
I love Sanji’s character a lot. He’s kind, giving, charming, dorky, and brave. But I’d love to see even more out of him in years to come.
(If you want reblog this and want to remove the commentary when you do, go ahead. I just really wanted to gush some Sanji love.)
