Whelp. Did not do well on my first exam in my internetworking class. Look like I’ve been screwed out of an A once again. Sometimes I think I should just take my Masters and leave.
I’m surprised to see some people confused over Ryuuko’s sudden change of heart in episode 21 in regards to wanting to wear Senketsu, claiming it’s an asspull from the writers.
"It doesn’t make any sense," people say.
My reply, “Pay attention to what Senketsu says in Episode 21.”
Mako is her friend, arguably her best friend that provided her with a sense of family and love…something Ryuuko in her 17 years of life has never really felt before.
So, when this happens:
And then this:
She freezes in horror when she realizes what she just did, as Senketsu, after taking the hit, spews Mako’s blood all over Ryuuko.
They even animate Mako’s blood to represent Ryuuko’s tears as it flows down her face.
Ryuuko realizes that she just attempted to kill her friend, essentially her family, just so she could live in an illusion of a happy world where she didn’t have to deal with the fact that she is a “monster”.
But how does this explain why she goes back to Senketsu?
Because it’s what Senketsu does for Ryuuko is what also strikes a cord with her. Senketsu states, that no matter what, he won’t let Ryuuko kill Mako as it would devastate her.
It’s not that Ryuuko actually strikes Senketsu by accident that effects her, because let’s face it, she does this:
It’s because Senketsu prevents her from making the worst mistake of her life. He cares about her.
The whole Wedding sequence is meant to make Ryuuko realize that it’s not the fact that she’s infused with life fibers that makes her a monster, but her actions that do.
Remember, in Japan, the bride wears white as it represents her death to her old family and later the bride wears red because it represents her rebirth into her husband’s family?
Ripping Junketsu off and wanting to wear Senketsu again is symbolic of Ryuuko breaking away from her old life (the painful memories, the loneliness) and accepting a new life with those who genuinely care about her and forging her own path.
The old Ryuuko dies and a new Ryuuko is reborn.

CA vs Derse details
(mostly ‘cause I wanted to do a cool 3 pt thing like the panels the composition was based on)
I did another thing
Wow! CA actually looking badass for once.
That’s $2000 in Australian money. It’s how much I’ve earned so far from using something called featurepoints. I have included written proof with my URL to show that the picture and money is actually mine. (as requested by a number of people)
Do you want this too? CLICK HERE for detailed instructions and proof. All you basically do is test out free apps, get points and redeem those points for gift cards or real money!
Also, reblog this if you want to show your followers. (only the nice vertical picture of my money should show up on your blog anyway.) I will try to help you earn your first $50 as well if i see that you have reblogged this.
I was surprised to see that this actually works. What you did not say however is that when someone uses your referral code, you earn half of whatever they earn. For example, when someone earns 100 points you get 50 points. No wonder you’ve been making so much with all the people that must have used your code.
We did it!
