Imagine if the series had ended right after this moment.
jäger (german): hunter
This was the point in the movie where I was sold. Completely and 100% in love. I remember grabbing Trey’s arm and pointing at the screen and speaking very very frantically. “Honey, honey look! Look the suits and the gears are worn, there are chips in the paint! The details!”
So often today movies, especially ones with sizable amounts of cgi, are all about the gloss and the shiny. They don’t take care in the little details. Like how these two Rangers have been piloting Gipsy together for a while, and the movie shows that, it doesn’t just tell you that. And not just in how well Yancy and Raleigh fight together, but in the little details, like chips in fucking paint.
Reblogging for above commentary.
This was also my moment, too. I slid down in my seat til I was almost falling out of it and clutched Mezi’s knee so hard I might have scraped her skin THROUGH her jeans. For me (since I’d been forewarned to look out for the realism of the weathering on the kit) it was the many stages of getting strapped in and suited up - quite literally the process of attaching themselves, body and mind, into the machine, in ways that are not easy to quickly pop out of, in ways that translate not only the power but the pain of the machine into their own bodies.
The movie doesn’t just claim that the pilots fuse with not only each other but also the body of their jaeger; it shows us. The effort and pain and skill and strength required for this job is evident in every motion, and it wouldn’t have, couldn’t have been, if it was CGI with actors on greenscreens. The physical effort is apparent in every touch.
Reblogging for reference. The details might come in handy for posts about Drivesuits someday.

Meet the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police, serving the capital of Iceland. By the looks of their incredible Instagram account, a normal day includes holding kittens, eating candy and wearing false mustaches.

reblog if your url represents who you really are
I am really Putin’s girlfriend
then we have a problem
I can explain it
You can tell who’s oppressed by what they are fighting for.
Women in other parts of the world fight to have an education, to be able to walk in the streets and not be stoned to death. They fight to be able to marry who they want. They fight to be able to live a healthy life.
Women in the western world “fight” to take a song off the radio, “fight” to not have to shave their legs. “Fight” to silence anyone who has a differing opinion.
Just a thought.
yeah! everyone knows because someone is more oppressed, you can’t try to have a better life! thanks op!!!!
let’s apply op’s logic to other situations though and see how it holds up:
Feminists organizations fight for rape prevention and awareness, for equal pay, and for representation in government and the media. they also fight to be allowed to participate in masculine occupations, ranging from construction to high ranking STEM fields.
MRAs fight for…something I’m sure. To derail discussion about rape and prevent women from making video games I think.
I guess it does work sometimes.
He’ s not a mangaka, but his art influence mangakas too… and anime, manga, video games are connected :D
