in which Totoro boops Mana Ashida on the head.
Japanese child actress Mana was embarrassed that she couldn’t pronounce Guillermo Del Toro’s name so he gave her special permission to call him “Totoro-san” instead.

Hey, look. This is REALLY important.
Can we now stop hating on people, seriously? Tumblr is catching it on its radar and it is a preeeety big sign when this is brought up in the new agreements.
I bet that half of everyone just clicked agree and left it at that.
Stop hating on gender: Binary and non binary.
Stop hating on sexuality: Cis or non Cis.
Most of all: Stop sending hate to Minors.
I’m sick of seeing hate with this stuff on my dash, tumblr is addressing this so can we all just calm down please?
Important for this blog and points I brought up the other day.
Oh, good to know there’s a specific rule against harassing minors. Keeping this in my back pocket.
This post makes me so happy
HOLY SHIT HOW IS IT THAT THERE’S NOT SOME LIKE
LINKS OR SOMETHING HERE
OKAY SIT BACK KIDS LET’S TALK ABOUT THESE REAL LIVE FUCKING DRAGONS
THEY ARE LITERALLY CALLED FLYING DRAGONS, THAT IS THEIR NAME. OR, IF YOU’RE MORE SCIENCEY, YOU MAY ALSO CALL THEM [DRACO VOLANS], WHICH, BTW, LITERALLY IS JUST ANOTHER WAY OF SAYING FLYING DRAGONS BECAUSE EVEN SCIENCE KNOWS WHEN TO STEP ASIDE AT LET MYTHOLOGY TAKE OVER.
SEE THAT SPINE THING THAT ITS WINGSAILS GROW OUT OF?
THAT IS A FUCKING RIB
LOOK AT THIS SKELETON
LOOK AT HOW COOL THAT IS
THEY LIVE IN THE PHILIPPINES AND CAN GET AS BIG AS A FOOT LONG AND BASICALLY
BASICALLY DRAGONS ARE REAL
LET’S HAVE A FUCKING PARTY
Okay, okay, I’m going to tell you what Hermione sees in Ron.
A trio is a balancing act, right? They’re equalizers of each other. Harry’s like the action, Hermione’s the brains, Ron’s the heart. Hermione has been assassinated in these movies, and I mean that genuinely—by giving her every single positive character trait that Ron has, they have assassinated her character in the movies. She’s been harmed by being made to be less human, because everything good Ron has, she’s been given.
So, for instance: “If you want to kill Harry, you’re going to have to kill me too”—RON, leg is broken, he’s in pain, gets up and stands in front of Harry and says this. Who gets that line in the movie? Hermione.
“Fear of a name increases the fear of the thing itself.” Hermione doesn’t say Voldemort’s name until well into the books—that’s Dumbledore’s line. When does Hermione say it in the movies? Beginning of Movie 2.
When the Devil’s Snare is curling itself around everybody, Hermione panics, and Ron is the one who keeps his head and says “Are you a witch or not?” In the movie, everybody else panics and Hermione keeps her head and does the biggest, brightest flare of sunlight spell there ever was.
So, Hermione—all her flaws were shaved away in the films. And that sounds like you’re making a kick-ass, amazing character, and what you’re doing is dehumanizing her. And it pisses me off. It really does.
In the books, they balance each other out, because where Hermione gets frazzled and maybe her rationality overtakes some of her instinct, Ron has that to back it up; Ron has a kind of emotional grounding that can keep Hermione’s hyper-rationalness in check. Sometimes Hermione’s super-logical nature grates Harry and bothers him, and isn’t the thing he needs even if it’s the right thing, like when she says “You have a saving people thing.” That is the thing that Harry needed to hear, she’s a hundred percent right, but the way she does it is wrong. That’s the classic “she’s super logical, she’s super brilliant, but she doesn’t know how to handle people emotionally,” at least Harry.
So in the books they are this balanced group, and in the movies, in the movies—hell, not even Harry is good enough for Hermione in the movies. No one’s good enough for Hermione in the movies—God isn’t good enough for Hermione in the movies! Hermione is everybody’s everything in the movies.
Harry’s idea to jump on the dragon in the books, who gets it in the movies? Hermione, who hates to fly. Hermione, who overcomes her withering fear of flying to take over Harry’s big idea to get out of the—like, why does Hermione get all these moments?
[John: Because we need to market the movie to girls.]
I think girls like the books, period. And like the Hermione in the books, and like the Hermione in the books just fine before Hollywood made her idealized and perfect. And if they would have trusted that, they would have been just fine.
Would the movies have been bad if she was as awesome as she was in the books, and as human as she was in the books? Would the movies get worse?
She IS a strong girl character. This is the thing that pisses me off. They are equating “strong” with superhuman. To me, the Hermione in the book is twelve times stronger than the completely unreachable ideal of Hermione in the movies. Give me the Hermione in the book who’s human and has flaws any single day of the week.
Here’s a classic example: When Snape in the first book yells at Hermione for being an insufferable know-it-all, do you want to know what Ron says in the book? “Well, you’re asking the questions, and she has to answer. Why ask if you don’t want to be told?” What does he say in the movie? “He’s got a point, you know.” Ron? Would never do that. Would NEVER do that, even before he liked Hermione. Ron would never do that.
