DID YOU JUST GET AN ENTIRE MAKEOVER BECAUSE OF WHAT HYOUBU SAID??
well the mask is probably due to the explosion but
I guess Gilliam decided he wanted to look like the phantom of the opera or something to go with his new bird mask
Black Phantom and Bird Phantom.
As awesome as it would be to call him Birb Phantom and institute the headcanon of Hyoubu’s life-altering fashion critiques, I don’t think we can say that this is Gilliam just yet. Although the regal attire certainly does fit him, Birb Phantom here could just be a hypnotized esper and the cracks on his face could probably be explained by one of Gilliam’s many experiments since the last time we saw him. For example, it’s possible that the cracks could be a by-product of Gilliam searching for a way to control espers without using Yuuri.
going by the last time we saw him I would be really shocked if that was anyone else, even a clone of himself.
is aot even still going it got kinda weird when everybody started going super saiyan and sasquatch became a villain
It’s still going but it;s a monthly series which means it doesn’t really keep they hype going very well
also for a few chapters (maybe like 6? keep in mind that would be SIX MONTHS) everything was INCREDIBLY boring talking head politics and the action only just came back like one or 2 chapters ago and there are still politics going on.
So I am guessing a lot of people got bored and have failed to keep up with it.
The fandom will probably resurface whenever a season 2 happens.
is this in response to something or just a general post?
I’d say mostly in response to when I come across blogs full of fan theories from the marvel movies by people who haven’t read any comics because I have read just enough comics to be confused by some of them
but it is pretty general I don’t think anything has ever been more hilarious than attack on titan theories from people who were only watching the show I saw.
Fact: telling people to read source material for <adapted thing> is rude
Fact: telling people their headcanons make no sense is rude
Fact: a lot of adaptations portray characters totally OOC from a source material
Fact: things adapted from books/comics to movies/tv often end up with the movies/tv version more popular then the source
meaning if you have the misfortune of being a fan of the source material over the adaptation you are going to be really mad at fandom a lot of the time because the most popular interpretation of Thing might be so OOC to your headcanons (or even ACTUAL canon) of the original thing you like you want to rip out your hair.
They’re taking a page out of every jrpg female protagonist’s book and doing the hair cutting thing to signify that she is done with her “useless garbage” phase and is now in her “magically 10 levels higher and has unlocked her cool final spells” phase. Because that hasn’t been done 396346890 times before!
I think it is a general cultural thing where cutting off hair is done to signify a major life change.
iirc the first context I saw it in was in rurouni kenshin which ends with kenshin chopping off his ponytail and officially quitting to start a family which is neither a female character nor a power up so I wouldn’t be too worried about a magic power boost based on that.
