Final Decision, rant & last post

As you might have probably guessed, I’m not going to take the blog back. It’s just common sense. Things have changed, but certainly not in a good way. And by things, I, of course, want to refer to the Tenipuri fandom (on tumblr, because it seems to be a tumblr phenomenon exclusively, how surprising…).

Before talking about the cases, because I’m not going to shut my mouth just for the reason that people feel bad about me ranting about the fandom; I’ll take the time to indicate that I won’t delete this blog, and that it still won’t be okay to repost my edits and gifs. (Haru-chan’s still my number one, and I won’t give my username either; even with all the money in the world.)

Now, concerning the detailed reasons behind my choices… Those are pretty harsh and strictly personal. Also, I’m generalizing, but it does not mean I’m aiming on everyone. In fact, I don’t have names in mind, thus if you feel concerned then it’s kinda your problem not mine. Also, I’m NOT intending on throwing a fandom war since this article gathers none other than my private thoughts and feelings. Read at your own risk.

Hiatus

I’m putting this blog on hiatus, not knowing when I’ll come back if I come back at all. This blog means a lot to me, but then again, both my motivation and desire to contribute to the fandom are gone and I can’t create if I don’t want to.

It might not mean much to you, I’m just a simple fan among all the others after all, and my blog isn’t especially wonderful since my edits and gifs are pretty poor; so I’ll make it short and just wish you to spend great end-of-year celebrations, and may you get everything you wish for. ♥

Manuela, don’t want you to miss it ♥

It’s December 8.

One year ago to the day, I was talking to you for the very first time. I remember, I was all nervous because you seem so cool and it was my very first time taking the initiative to go up to someone by my own free will and it seemed crazy to me to do such a thing.

But now that a year has passed, I have no regrets. I’m glad that I took the decision to go up to you, because you’re one of the best “things” that ever happened in my life.

We’ve been talking almost every day, and each conversation we had was enriching; whether we were talking about Prince of Tennis, or even about life in a general yet precise way.

Since that day, you’ve always been there for me. You’ve always supported me, spontaneously saying the things I wanted to ear the most, encouraging me in every break down I went through without me asking for you to do it, offering me your hand every time I fell so I could raise back again. You gave me the confidence, the trust and security I was craving for, to keep on fighting for the person I am. You gave me the sureness I was lacking and never though was ever possible to obtain.

You always understand my every words, my points of view, my way of being, and even though I can be extremely mean at times, you still accept me the way I am and tell me that I’m a good person; I’m pretty sure that if I were to stop talking, you would still find a way to understand how I feel and to tell me precisely what I need to hear so I can feel good again. You gave me the possibility to feel lonely more than to be lonely, and I never though I could get to such a definition in my entire life.

Thank you for everything you’ve done for me, you’re like a sister to me, someone with whom I share that special and spiritual bond; and I’m forever grateful that I have you. You know that whatever happens, things aren’t one sided and that I’ll always be here to listen to your every complain, to give you a shoulder to cry on, to encourage and support your every projects, to understand you and to love you as well, obviously. Your friendship means the world to me.

You’re the closest to perfection. Thank you for existing.

Thank you ♥

I can’t stop smiling because of this! Thank you so much for taking your time to write all these ♥

I also remember very well the first time we talked, despite me being really nervous and not talkative enough, I was glad to have answered you the way I did on that day. Instead of disregarding my words, you understood each of them and responded back making me not regret it, contrasting to what I had felt before when trying to approach others.

Trusting you was almost natural, and for the first time, I could easily open myself to someone without having to feign my behavior. It wasn’t actually complicated for me to start a conversation. Thanks to you, I finally got to know myself better, it meant a lot to me at that time since it was as if I regained the spirit I had lost, due to many circumstances.

I always look forward to what you have to say; every time we talk you teach me many things, you help me overcome troublesome situations and foremost, you accept me and take care of me without asking anything in return. Honestly -and I’ve mentioned this many times-, before meeting you, I had lost hope in finding someone I could call my “friend”, someone that fitted my concept of “friendship”.

You’re a wonderful person and I admire how straightforward you are, even if it means having a great amount of people going against you. I’ll always support you and be there anytime you need me, I wish I could do a lot more to pay back all the great things you have given me; you’re one of the things that make life worth living for!

I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be my friend other than you Nana and I know it’ll remain this way ♥

Anonymous said : I really appreciate your support for The Prince of Tennis. Do you know of any other active Tenipuri blogs I could visit? Thanks!

Thank you =)

Most of the active blogs I like and would recommend aren’t only focused on Tenipuri, this being said I don’t think I can redirect you to one except iBuntamarui (that you probably already know). ♥

I’m sorry, wish I could help you more ^^”

Anonymous said : Which character do you think is the most fascinating and why ? (you can't answer Inui)

*whispers* Inui *flees*

Even though they are all equally interesting and fascinating, I would say that the character that fascinates me the most at the moment is none other than… Ootori Choutarou.

As to why, well, I think that he might probably be one of the most perplex characters of the series. Even though he always seems so nice, compliant and withdrawn, and that his strength and will power are obvious; I would say that these criteria only build the very first aspects of his personality. Something that would stand for a protective and tricky wall he could hide his inner “engine” behind.

I think of him as a darker person, whose depths are made of strenuous and vigorous intensity. If I had to use a comparison, I would say that he is a bit like water. He has that peaceful and calm attitude, which can sometimes be really monotonous, smooth and undeniably harmless. Choutarou is easy to deal with, easy-going, understanding and serene; and it’s the first aspect, what we see and know of him without thinking too much.

But then, when other earthy components interact with water - just like when other people and situations involve him directly - it starts to move a little, waves are forming and their power is proportional to the the strength of the said interaction. Behind the calm and peaceful appearance the water has, there’s that everlasting and redundant hidden strength : there are waves. I think that, Choutarou may be really quiet and kind on the outside; everything inside of him boils constantly, and the power of what he feels depends on the people and situations he is involved with/in. During matches, Choutarou is strong and rather stubborn, he wants to succeed, his spirit of competition is outstanding and he has a desire for victory. And I would say that it’s the second aspect of his personality, something more profound, something strong, but still not the entirety of his whole being. Which leads us to a third aspect. Water is one of the most devastating component of our planet. More than being peaceful to the point of looking harmless, it can also cause humongous disasters. It decimates, destroys and kills. I don’t think Choutarou is a murderer of something of that kind, but I would say that he possesses a somehow disastrous energy deep inside, and that if he were to lose his head, it wouldn’t be a pretty sight.

Choutarou is not just nice. He is accurately nice. He knows exactly what to say or how to react, no matter the situation he is plunged into; and such an accurate way of interacting, is not due to an innocent need or desire to be nice, but to a strong understanding of the environment he lives in. It takes exceptional skills of perception and experience to be so accurately kind; and it requires intelligence to apply it. Choutarou might not say much; I’m pretty sure he is one of the most intelligent, one of the smartest characters of the series. I would even go as far as calling him a genius.

Now to end it all, lots of people say that Choutarou depends on the others a lot, and more precisely, that he highly depends on Shishido. But I disagree, because I would say that it’s the other way around. I’ve always though that Choutarou was some kind of introvert. A guy who would observe rather than talk, who would seem like he follows people rather than lead them, who would like to have quite some time alone to think about the world,… And who was in fact pretty independent, never asked for anything both because he wanted to work using his own skills and because problems were to solve by his only ability, and wanted to follow his very own path. It’s true that Choutarou is extremely sensitive and that when it comes to Shishido he can appear very emotional, but I would say that his sensitivity is a matter of gratefulness more than a matter of dependence. He is grateful that Shishido accepts him, understands him and helps him on his own free will, but he doesn’t depend on him; as he would do just fine without him.

Oh man, I still have so many ideas on the subject, but I guess that my answer is long, incomprehensible and senseless enough like that. ^^” Maybe I’ll try expressing it better later on. Still hope that some of the things I wrote are understandable ^^”

Thank you for asking ♥

Anonymous said : I visited your Doki Doki Survival guide blog! Do you own any Tenipuri games, and is it safe to download them?

Thanks for visiting Dokipuri guide !

Well, depends on what you mean when you use the verb “owning”. I have it on my computer, but not quite sure that it’s the case if we’re talking about it as a possession I can put my hands on ?

And if it’s safe… Well, I can guarantee that there’s no risk for your computer. Now, interpreting it another way, downloading a game is still downloading a game. U.U

Thanks for asking ~

Anonymous said : Is it true that the Prince of Tennis characters look older than they're supposed to (especially Tezuka) because they were originally going to be high school students?

Well, there’s this; but I also believe that, even though he is writing and drawing a shonen manga, Konomi-sensei wanted to attract certain “categories” of people. Our fandom is probably made of like 92% of yaoi and shonen ai lovers, while the manga has nothing to do with yaoi and shonen ai; and it’s all thanks to the aesthetics of the characters and the fanservice in a way. I mean, aesthetically speaking - even though I’m no professional in the subject and don’t know much about it - each and every single character is very attractive. And we’ve got to be honest, if the characters weren’t physically this appealing at first glance, we wouldn’t have been attracted to the series and the story as we have been attracted to it.
Far be it from me to say that Prince of Tennis is only about appearances and fanservice, don’t get me wrong there (since I’m not a shipper, don’t like it when people justify their liking for a character because of their physical appearance, and value the story, personalities and developments of the series more than anything else); but seriously… Most of us are like 20, do you think that we would still have that personal attraction for the characters if they looked like they were truly 12 or 14 ? We don’t only like the characters for their appearances (fortunately !), that’s for sure. But we can’t deny that appearances are what first attract us. So would it have been the same otherwise ?

Now, “is it true that the Prince of Tennis characters look older than they’re supposed to (especially Tezuka) because they were originally going to be high school students?”, the only person that can give you a proper and accurate answer is none other than Konomi-sensei himself; I’m only a fan, and the only thing I can do there is making suppositions. =)

However, thank you very much for asking; and hope I didn’t say too much ^^”
