Bad literature is our only hope.
This is how great Princess Mononoke is. It is so great that I couldn’t contain all my fangirl feels into just one post.
Because while San is awesome, so is Lady Eboshi.
Look at her. Just Look.
She is in charge of the richest Iron town in the country. She took in brothel girls and gave them a safe place to live and work and be happy. She took in LEPERS and gave them a purpose and a sanctuary. She’s so bad ass that war lords don’t stand a chance. GODS don’t stand a chance. She personally kills not one, but TWO mother fucking GODS in this movie. And in the end, she sees reason. She’s not ambitious to the point of insanity. She just wants what is best for the people she’s in charge of.
She’s snarky and awesome, and designs guns, and kicks ass AND empowers OTHER women as well. She’s caring too, empathetic. She’s kind of the villain of the movie, and yet she’s not a villain at all. While San is all feral and nature and wild, Eboshi is humanity and civilization embodied. Not evil. Not good. Complex and wonderful, empowered and powerful.
part of the reason that Princess Mononoke is my favourite Ghibli film of all time, probably my favourite anime movie of all time as well though Ghost in the Shell is almost there.
I loved Princess Mononoke almost solely for the fact that Miyazaki made it difficult to choose a side to root for. Both are complex and sympathetic, yet stubborn and ignorant of each other, and it’s a rare pro-environmental film that refuses to take the path so many lesser directors take by stripping humanity as a whole down into callous villains.
coco! what do your cat eyes see?

the worst thing about tumblr is that you read all those pro feminist/anti rape/anti misogyny posts all the time everyday and then you actually go outside and talk to a random guy and it feels like being punched in the face with a chair
