Becket, this is Mako Mori.

  

But look how they perceived each other too. This memory isn’t an exact one (memories rarely are). Raleigh’s perception of Mako was very close up and she’s this stunning, slightly sad, closed off thing framed by her umbrella like a halo. She looks exquisite and unapproachable in a way. Mako’s perception of Raleigh has him looking far more serious and sad than he actually looked when they met. The camera angle zooms in like she was suddenly really taking in who this guy was and he looks forbidding and far more warrior like than he ever does in real life. If you notice, that one frame makes him look more like Stacker than any other moment in that movie. If that was her perception, something about Raleigh ALREADY reminded her of the level of command her father had and not only is she the only one in the movie who sees that, but we realize it’s an internal thing on Raleigh’s part because he doesn’t ACT like Stacker, but he sure has the same grit.

I so love when people see things I miss! When I saw these gifs together, my jaw dropped. They actually took the time to refilm their first meeting. Blows my mind how much thought they put into the drift sequences. I wish we could get a point by point explanation of each drift cause there is a lot in there we don’t understand.

It upsets me how many people need to be convinced that a magical girl show is “dark” and “not girly” in order to watch it. Isn’t the magical girl genre about how it’s good to be a girl and like girly things, or did I dream that?

I thought its purpose was to help our people,but am I wrong?
If the answer is different,please tell me.
What do you think is the purpose of the Imperial Court?As long as taxes are paid,you don’t care if the payers are different than the previous time?
Somewhere,don’t you believe that no matter how many people die,others will be born?
Somewhere,don’t you think that our people are disposable?That they can be replaced?
Aren’t you forgetting that,in a faraway land,there are people clinging to life,dying and crying?
Because you can’t see the faces of our people,you may feel that they are all the same.
But each one of them is a irreplaceable existence to somebody!
As government officials,whom should we protect?
There are matters that an individual cannot accomplish,but I have this power now!
The Kou Shuurei of a year ago could not have done this.
What is the point of having power,if one does not make use of it?
Even when in these hands,there is the power to save people?!!

Kou Shuurei - Governor of Sa Province.
