Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
The Princess and the Tanooki have their target.
Marie and Taro are so awesome. The fact that Taro cares so much about Ky, and NOT in the stupid "I need him as a number" kinda way but more of the "I genuinely care about him" kinda way is amazing. People, STOP thinking Taro is shady or a villain; he's not. He has the best of intentions at heart. I know it. He always did, from the very start. So ENOUGH.
I really hope Marie and Taro pull this off and get Cordelia out. She needs to go. I can put up with Brandi if it means Cordelia leaves. *fingers crossed*
@Tailslover13: They're certainly picking the smart move. Although Brandi can be difficult to work with, it is true she despises liars (the fact she aligned herself with one makes her a tool but whatever). The devastation to see any of the better characters go over Cordelia would be pretty heartbreaking.
@Joey the Badass Wheeler: Just keep your fingers crossed that Cordelia will leave. Have faith! If Brandi really is reasonable without the use of Paranoia affecting her, hopefully she'll listen to Marie.
@Tailslover13: I will always hate Brandi just of what she has done and for being a bitch to people throughout the game however if she does join the supers and Marie and vote off Coredelia my hate will lessen.
@Crazy fan: I'm sure most of our hate for her will lessen if she does that. Not fully disappear, but it will lessen. It's never too late to do the right thing.
To be fair, Taro is still kinda shady. Not in the "he's a villain!" kind of shady, but in the "he's hiding his true intentions" kind of shady. It's been alluded to all season, and even in this comic he talks about not being able to blow his cover.
It just so happens that it's a kind of shady people don't condemn him for, or at least find him too lovable to fault him for it~
@anime9001: Really? I don't find him shady at all. I never did. I was just smart enough to realize he was playing the laid-back, listen and don't speak kinda game, and was happy with it. He likely isn't going to show any true colors or anything anytime soon, and I'm fine with it. He is who he is.
@Tailslover13: Well, I think we're just mixing the definition of "shady" then. I consider not showing your true colors to be shady in terms of the game, but it's not shady in terms of the audience, since we know of his intentions. Similar to Bonnie being shady in her original season after her intentions were shown to the audience, but not to the cast; albeit in a much more evil manner than Taro.
Edit: But the different perceptions of being "shady" is understandable in this case. Taro himself is an odd character in terms of what SWSU has done in the past.
@anime9001: I mean, I guess you're right. I just...I mean, it seems kinda mean or judgmental to call someone "shady" just because of the way they are. I'm willing to bet this is how Taro is out of the game, too. So, it would be no different than calling a black person "shady" for being...black. I know that's taking it a BIT too far, but you see my point, right? It doesn't feel right to judge based on appearances or just how they play. It's not like Taro is gonna suddenly pull a Bonnie this late into the game, or pull an Alleio, or pull a Tapioca...I hope.
@Tailslover13: That's fair. I think the main difference between our views of the term is that you are discussing it like an automatic negative while I'm more talking about it in a neutral aspect.
While probably not the best example, I think the movie Green Hornet has a good example of someone who was shady for good intentions. If you've never seen it, it was about some rich dude who chose to be a hero using his money (sorta like batman, but the guy was a lot stupider and less skilled), but realized that if he ACTED like a hero, villains would take advantage of that. To keep that from happening, he pretended to be a crime boss while fighting crime. In this sense, he was shady, pretending to be a bad guy when he was actually doing good.
I see Taro as a very neutral type of Shady. I agree with you that, personality wise, I believe he's being 100% authentic. But he's being shady in the fact that he's not the 100% unbiased observer like he wants others to see him as. At least in how I define the word. Which, to be fair, it's silly for anyone to believe someone in this game is completely unbiased, but it seems to have worked out for him nonetheless. Actually, thinking about it, Ky might be near 100% unbiased. And Donovan from way back when. I think that's about it though.
As for your last statement, if anyone's gonna pull a Bonnie, I'm just paranoid Marie might in the end.... I don't believe she would given everything we've seen of her, and I feel we have enough evidence to the contrary, but it still makes me paranoid that I could almost see SWSU pulling that at the end of the day. I think that's my paranoia talking more than logic though.
@Tailslover13: Taro will always be remembered as that fat tanooki who made sushi and has a heart of gold. <3
@arv0908: Probably. Win or lose, you'd have to be some kind of asshole to not love him. At least a little.
Yes Taro, you are a pretty princess XD
I really like this trio. Hopefully they can take down Cordelia this time around. If we can get out at least one member of the Brandi/Cordelia duo at this point, this season will become much better.
I'm kinda surprised that Marie and Taro didn't even try to get Dustin to flip, but then again he has been pretty pointless ever since his idol play and has pretty much turned into Sylvia's little helper.
@Quizzical Pursuit: True, but Marie doesn't really know that, nor did Taro really seem to mind all that much, especially with Dustin and Ky as friends. Still as far as their decision goes, it is the smart move to get Brandi on their side. Let's just hope it works out for them.
omg Maria i will love you forevs if you take Crodielhellililiah out!
This new alliance makes me happy. If they do somehow manage to get Brandi to vote out La Rooux, I may actually start warming up to her.
I-I'm not even kidding.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: why you not like t'mara
@TrollDoll: *looks really confused* Because we're two different people...?
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: I identify as a sloth. Check your privilege! *cries in the corner*
@TrollDoll: You can't tell me to be like Tamara, considering she and I are different genders, and more importantly, different races.
I mean, if that *is* what you were asking me. I couldn't really understand the question.
DON'T LET SOCIETY TELL YOU WHAT YOU CAN'T BE TARO
Also, that "it's happening" gif would be fitting here.
@Vilecheese: trololololol i knew it chimcar needs to sign my petition now
Yes. Unlikely Conspirators. And by "Unlikely Conspirators," we mean TOTALLY LIKELY CONSPIRATORS!
That aside, I see this having a large chance of working. I don't see Ky going home on this move, and Cordelia is popping too many flags. A large portion of the season has built up for the Brandi realization of Cordelia, and it seems like that day or today.
Btw, Taro looks surprisingly awkward without his apron on. I know he's wearing a towel like Marie is, but it....doesn't help much.
Honestly if this works, I might do a slight turn around on Brandi. I do hate her less than before since I found out about Paranoia, but if she votes Cordelia out I might seriously consider not hating her anymore XD.
Also Ky Taro Marie final three. Please SWSU. We deserve this.
@dat4yc: Please oh please oh please. Taro needs to make the finals. Either alone, or with Ky in tow.
@anime9001: I couldn't tell if he was... I hope he was.
If Brandi does help get out the Roo of Evil; she might be able to actually win this season.
Marie omg I love you so much.
Taro omg I love you so much.
Pls. get Cordelia gone for the greater good. I hope we get a Brandi v Cordelia scene lmfao. Brandi better not fuck up this one and make up a new agenda from her delusional mind.
I corrected their duo name for ya.
@anime9001: thanks :)
well then....given that this EP is going REALLY smoothly thus far into REALLY favorable momentum for our 3 heroes (Marie/Taro/Ky), this is EASILY the most SUCCESSFULL/POSITIVE alliance we might have EVER had yet! *screams joyously*
Honestly, if there was EVER ANY moment that Brandi could do the IMPOSSIBLE, now is the BEST/LAST time we may EVER have to see this happen, by REDEEMING herself at LAST! & like many others, I sincerely HOPE to GOD that this WORKS, & Cordelia gets BLUFFED into a corner by the cop herself, & finally Crank w/ a Blindside. Thus, if Shaega does NOT interfere w/ this plan, we may be GOLDEN. Also, call me crazy but, I've ALWAYS still had that LITTLE remainder that Brandi can STILL revert to her OLD self on EP1 (or maybe even a BETTER version yet)!
Overall, once Cordelia leaves (given that her Sztick/lies/even "Story" are REALLY running out of fumes), this will VASTLY improve the Quality of the remaining cast CONSIDERABLY, & I THINK everyone (even the Troll) can agree about that w/ Cordelia leaving here/now. ^~^
It's confirmed: Taro is a pretty princess. :D
Oooooh boy. Cordelia's days are finally numbered. If Marie can pull this off, it'll be quite the win for everyone (except Cordelia, of course)... but it's easier said than done.
Even so, at least Taro's still playin' smart. Don't take unnecessary risks if you can help it... and trying to work with Brandi is a risky venture for everyone.
@RedBeryl: Everything just seems too easy. While I think SWSU could throw a curveball and have everything go smoothly, I just have a gut feeling that Cordelia might get immunity and or convince Brandi otherwise, and as a result, Ky, Marie, or Taro kicks the bucket. Boy I hope I'm wrong.
Taro is the prettiest princess. Especially since he's about to orchestrate the downfall of Cordelia. They raise a good point. If Brandi finally gets a clue (ironically enough), then Cordelia's getting dropped like a hot rock.
Nothing to dislike here: Those two are as likeable as ever and care for an ally besides their own game. I'd definitely like this alliance to last.
I fear the problems will start when they're back in camp for the immunity though. The only one who can really affect indecisive Brandi's voting is Cordelia herself and this might result into a Marie boot in the worst case scenario. This is one of the moments where I definitely hope I'm wrong
I really hope their plan works, I've been wanting Cordelia gone since day one and the Taro/Ky/Marie trio is too likable to fail.
I have no idea why you think you can convince Brandi to vote out Cordelia, Marie, but whatever makes you feel better. XD
So Taro is basically a less-naked, kinder Richard Hatch? Good to know.
BEST. ALLIANCE. EVER.
Sadly I don't think Cordelia goes this episode. I'm leaning towards Brandi or Shaega's demise. I'm thinking the first two or three April Fools comic panels were showing us the future before spiraling out of control, just like Jake's boot episode did. So I don't think Cordelia is going anywhere for at least a few episodes, I hope i'm wrong though.
@Blastoise_FTW: I want to believe that, but the colors were purple and not yellow. And I doubt Cordelia would go from hating Ky to loving Ky and getting into a showmance. XD
@TJBambi93: THAT part I think was fake. I'm talking just the first three panels. Maybe the text was just changed to throw us for a loop? IDK, but we will see.
@Blastoise_FTW: Actually now that I think about it, that comic was done at Golgora's camp, not Tortana's.
@Guest: ... Fuck I give up. It was fake.
