What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?




50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.


Boycott this fucking movie, for the love of god. These kinds of ideas are dangerous and set us back as a society

So someone swapped in the Attack on Titan theme on the opening for Sailor Moon Crystal and this was the result.

Holy shit

do most anime openings got like a pacing system going on? cuz when I was in the 10th grade I tried swapping the 2nd Naruto opening with the OP music from at least 6 different animes and every single one of them worked flawlessly

they actually do, they’re very formulaic.

Oh my moon goddess…. Perfect

i love how even in the pv for the opening theme with all the effort they put into drawing unnecessarily tiny detail in the hair and super shiny special effects, THEY STILL CAN’T DRAW A SINGLE FACE THAT ISN’T COMPLETELY FUCKED UP

how did they manage this. is there literally not a single person in the animation staff that can draw. absolutely incredible

… Aaaand here’s a good example of my earlier complaint about “exaggerating the issues”, from the same person who said that they simply decided not to draw both eyes in a scene. I admit I’m not an art expert, but nothing jumps out at me as particularly “wrong” with this picture, especially when you compare it to Naoko’s art style, which does tend to have issues with super-pointy chins and “under-drawn” noses.

buddy, if you can’t see a single thing wrong with this picture, to say you’re not an art expert would be a severe underestimation

let me break it down for you. because i actually hate this image that much, and hey, i have the time, so why not:

first, let us trace over the eyes, the most instantly jarring aspect of this picture. if you’re STILL not seeing the problem with them, allow me to flip one so that they match, and then place them one on top of the other.


but wait, that’s not all! drawing symmetry lines over her face will make even MORE mistakes noticeable!

holy shit, not a single part of her is drawn the way it should be. even though she’s facing us in full frontal view, her nose is drawn as if her face is turned slightly to our left, and her poor mouth is apparently trying to escape even farther to the left than that. seriously, facial features are supposed to LINE UP, this is some basic ass shit and they can’t even do that? even the moon on her forehead is symmetrical AND lopsided, and her ears aren’t close to the same size, with one of them sticking out considerably more while also being taller. what.

and setting the facial symmetry issue aside for a second — what the FUCK is up with her neck/shoulders area? why do her shoulders curve in at this completely nonsensical sharp angle, while her neck juts out so unnaturally that it looks like a 5 year old’s drawing of a tree growing out the ground?

by taking one half of the image and flipping it and redrawing those awful, awful shoulders, we end up with this result, which is actually — hey, pretty decent, while actually following some basic rules of balance and human proportions:

to compare:

how hard would it have fucking been, animators? how fucking hard?

I wasn’t paying attention before, but now I will focus on the art of SMC
