not everyone who blogs about social justice issues is a social justice warrior! there are social justice clerics, social justice rogues, social justice rangers, and social justice wizards, among other classes. nobody’s going to get anywhere without diversity; if you go into any boss dungeon with a party consisting entirely of social justice warriors and expect to beat it then you are going to be sorely disappointed.

Srsly you guys, Princess Tutu is one of the most underrated classics in anime and honestly I don’t know why Tumblr doesn’t freak out about it more. The main character is a quirky outcast. The prince character that she’s trying to save is a COMPLETE damsel that can’t defend himself in the slightest without the girls to step in (and might I add the men ALSO do ballet in this show and not some more masculine appearing alternative). Her enemy/rival has a fantastically sweet and sad arc. The guy antagonist is equally sad and awesome. The plot twists and turns all over the place (it starts off pretty episodic but really kicks into gear after the fourth episode I think). The art is gorgeous, ranging from greys to pastels. The outfits are based on REAL ballet outfits, aka they’re NOT meant to objectify the characters and make them perfect for pinups. And it’s based entirely on Germanic fairy tales, even the on screen text is in German.
Seriously guys, if you’ve never given this anime a watch, PLEASE do yourself a favor and do it!
Did I mention the main magical girl is actually a duck? Because she’s a duck.
If you guys haven’t seen Princess Tutu I honestly don’t know what you’ve been doing with your life.
Fantastic character development, classical ballet scores used in every episode (and tie into the plot of each), English and Japanese dubs are incredibly moving… This has been one of my all-time favorite series since the days when we didn’t even know if the second half of the show was going to be licensed and Princess Tutu fans only had a hope. That has to be about 10 years now. I recommend this series to anyone who loves a story.
I love this show so much, I recommend it to everybody I can. Don’t be fooled by it’s cutesy demeanor. IT WILL TAKE YOUR HEART AND STEP ON IT IN THE BEST WAYS POSSIBLE. :)
I love all the characters in this show so very very much.
i laughed so hard at the “i don’t know” and “something is wrong”

Incredibly Elaborate Miniature Fairy Castle
This elaborate miniature house was created in the 1930s by silent film star Colleen Moore. The Fairy Castle is filled with remarkable miniatures and artifacts and is a timeless reminder of the imagination, ingenuity and craftsmanship of cultures and artisans all over the world. It became a permanent exhibit when it was donated to the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago in 1949. The 9-square-foot castle features about 1,500 miniatures and cost nearly $500,000 at the time it was created. The tiny treasures, include:
- A painting done by Walt Disney himself, along with a dozen other pieces of original artwork from various artists
- The tiniest Bible ever to be written, dating back to 1840
- The dining room contains a replica of King Arthur’s round table
- Three statues of the Goddess Isis, more than 4,000 years old, in the Great Hall
