Anonymous sent: I'm so confused ; was the cartoon Japanese or Swedish? (I know Moomin is Swedish in itself but???)
the cartoon im gifing is japanese but moomin is originally finnish :)
It’s so confusing because the author of the Moomin comics and books was a Swedish-speaking Finn so they were written in Swedish, but are Finnish. But the animation that made it super famous is Japanese.
the authors mother was a swedish cartoonist and Tove spent a lot of time studying art in Stockholm when she was young, so yeah there’s a lot of hoppin’ between there. there’s a lot of swedish made moomin stuff, like a live action advent calendar that they aired in the 60’s that my mom and dad used to watch as kids. then there’s the first anime adoption of moomin from 69 which Tove disapproved of because she didn’t think moomin was correctly portrayed, and then the little updated version from 72 which has the coolest snufkin ever.
Was gonna make another 40K machine god joke but honestly this looks like some sh*t you see in Silent Hill.
About Sugilite, is she really meant to be shown as entirely a bad thing? What with Pearl being proven right and all. That felt kind of strange after Opal was so heroic. I hope in a future episode we can see Sugilite come to Pearl and Steven's rescue or defeat a monster like Opal did and show a more positive side to her.
Sugilite was able to complete her mission and destroy the Communication Hub, which is more that Opal was able to do at the Sky Spire. For all her heroics, Opal completely forgot to get the Heaven Beetle! Far from a perfectly executed fusion.
