i feel fairly certain that 90% of the mekakushi dan’s ‘missions’ are just them being overdramatic about running errands
#kido climbs a building and surveys the grocery store for two hours #'this is it #the store we have been looking for’ #kano and seto walk in and press against the wall like secret agents #kano smiles at everyone like they Know something #finally some concerned old lady calls security #kanos like The cops are Onto Us seto #and they sprint out the door #they didnt even buy anything the entire mission was a failure (via betinetine)
Well, if you ever wanted to see a demonstration of proper sword techniques, i’d be glad to show you.
okay no we’re going to talk about this body language.
so it’s obvious they’re defending mary, and it’s clear that seto and momo are her closest friends so that’s why they’re there. seto’s not only in the way, he has his arm outstretched too. of all of them his position is the most defensive— he’s also the last one to be killed from what we’ve seen, so it’s likely that he stayed with her, even while watching his adoptive siblings being killed and not being able to do anything to help.
momo has her arms around herself, her hand on her chest. momo isn’t that brave, she doesn’t face danger that well. she’s never had to, after all, not like the other three. but mary is her friend and she will stand by her. not much attention seems to go to how momo dies, which i think is odd.
and kano and kido, standing together to protect mary. while seto and momo are just sort of incidentally standing next to each other, it’s clear by the way that they’re turned towards each other that for them this is a partner effort. maybe they just exchanged glances. maybe they just said goodbye. but kano’s shoulders are slumped— he knows they don’t have much of a chance— and kido has her posture direct and solid, lifting one arm a bit to make herself look bigger.
they know they’re going down, but they’re going down together.
and mary, poor poor mary, doesn’t quite get what’s going yet. maybe they all sprung to her defense before she even knew what was happening. maybe she’s only now seeing the danger. she doesn’t look like she knows yet that all her friends are about to die.
stop reblogging this post. its so old. im so old.
Drew this after I finished VLR and turned it into a print on a whim, but when I put it up at my table at Fanexpo, I was surprised and thrilled by the Zero Escape fans that freaked out when they saw it. They even brought their friends back to the table to buy more prints. You guys were awesome!
