Drops of Jupiter

I'm a 29 year old British woman who works as a Bibliographic Data Assistant. I'm also an aspiring author.

Expect to find a lot of fandom-related things here (mainly anime/manga for now) and whatever else catches my interest.

If you want to talk to me about anything (within reason - no personal questions please!), then the best thing to do is to send me an ask message. I'm not on Tumblr much during the week because I work full-time, but I'll try to respond ASAP.

I am the last person you should look to for mercy, my child. 




Ok so ever since I re-read the manga and began to stalk the fandom here on tumblr my opinion on Naraku has really changed

AT first, like most people, I just thought he was rather a ‘weak’ (personality-wise) character because wow he’s just a dude that’s evil and that’s it everything he does it’s…

^  A Buddhist perspective on Naraku and the concept of “hell” in Buddhism. Interesting stuff.

Personally, I could sort of see what RT was trying to get at with Naraku’s final wish, I just think the way it was executed/written could have been better? (There were certainly some moments in the earlier volumes that seemed to imply that the reason why Naraku enjoyed making others suffer so much was because he was basically taking out his own misery/jealousy on other people. Unfortunately, this kind of fell by the wayside in the later volumes so the final wish felt a bit forced to me, if that makes any sense.) Then again, I have similar opinions about a lot of things that occured during last third or so of the manga, so YMMV.

I remember this one! It’s still a classic. XD


Pretty much.

Sorry Miroku but this is hilariously true. XD

I’m not into rule 63 fanart, for the most part, but I really like female!Naraku’s hair(?) here Speaking of rule 63, this artist seems to be really into it; s/he has done rule 63 with most of the main cast.


The opposite.

This reminds me of all those Inu/Kag badfics where Houjo is the villain. XD I mean… it’s Houjo. Houjo.
