I’ve said this before, but one of my favorite things that happens to media during localization is when the studio tries to pass it off as taking place in the United States when it very clearly does not. They got away with it pretty easily in the first Ace Attorney game, which just took place in “the city”, but as the games got more involved in Japanese mythology they started digging a pretty deep hole for themselves and it was too late to say “just kidding, we’re actually in Japan”.
So sure, Nine-Tales Vale is totally inhabited by “Japanese immigrants”, and also some thousand-year-old Japanese youkai spirits immigrated with them.
ahhh that pose is so comfy until you wake up though
i cant sleep on my stomach that well, but its worse if i’m trying to play video games on my stomach or lay on it with my head raised….. it makes it hard to breath and hurts my head!! x_x

he’s gonna feel like shit when he wakes up
he fell asleep on his stomach with his arms all tucked up underneath him
i want to play skyrim but good chance i’ll wake cole up just bouncing around on the bed trying to get comfortable after getting up to get my controller
sitting around playing on the computer, no sense of time, thinking i got to go to bed soon and cole’s already asleep because he’s a big baby

Look, I know what you’re all thinking
"What in the world do I get Josh for Christmas?"
Well, I have the answer my friends
In Japan they now sell Phoenix Wright glasses
PHOENIX. WRIGHT. GLASSES.
With lil’ Mega Man-style Phoenix and Edgeworth sprites.
There’s many occasions I could use these for, such as:
- looking ~kawaii during jury duty
- +50 EXP when making small talk to gamestop employees
- getting street cred at anime expo (“hey, nice glasses” “no objections there, pal!”
- feeling superior to plain janes that only rock plain frames
and that’s really it
But that’s okay, because Phoenix Wright glasses exist and its a wonderful time to be alive
okay so you can dislike one piece and the style of it all you want but
there are 724 canon characters
oda has created 724 characters with unique designs
and facts about themselves
and is able to keep that shit together
tell me that’s not amazing I dare you
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
I escaped child sex trafficking. From my experience and my blog, I can tell you this is the best call most people receive from suicide or rape crisis networks. I also called RAINN and got the same results. I called everywhere. I called and called for help about my rapes and flashbacks.
Person after person told me blankly and coldly told me “call someone else,” or “just figure it out,” some even acting disbelieving of my horrible traumas. When I failed, I tried again. Finally, I was breaking down completely. I shook and wanted to just end everything after the call you’re about to hear. But thank God I gave myself a reason to live: to warn others about these “charity corporations.”
I RECORDED MY CALL FOR HELP
Listen to what happened.
