    d-d-don't you think this meme format is more than a little played out. I am tired of the way that tumblr does not seem to know when to leave well enough alone when it comes to humor online. The more and more I've had to see posts like this the less and less funny they become. And it does not just go for this "baby saying it's first word" post format. I honestly came out to have a good time, spiders georg, and the mere concept of skeletons have all recently been subject to tumblr's strange obsession with rapid desensitization to a meme. The law of diminishing returns practically states that with every new variation on a meme, every time you add something to the already successful formula, it will be less successful, maybe not in note amount, but in post quality. And if we are living in a world where you value your note count more than you value the service you are providing to other bloggers with your insight or jokes, then you are practically a capitalist and is that really what you want? Tumblr, are you really in support of meme capitalism or can we, as a website, try to come together and create something more, something bigger? We can usher in a meme utopia. It is within our grasp. Thank you.

Ageha (揚羽) is a playable character from the Senran Kagura videogame series. She makes her debut in Senran Kagura: New Wave. Her mother is Spanish. Due to the influence of her mother’s country, compared to other girls she has a very mature atmosphere. Her behavior is also somewhat mature. She loves showy/flashy things, and above all she loves to dance. It seems the reason she chose to pursue the path of a ninja is her father.

i feel like video games are one of the most motivating art forms to me. they really teach you that you’re worth something, and that there is always somebody who believes in you.

Unless, of course, as exemplified in the artwork above, you’re non-white and/or a woman.

I’ll include more diversity the next time around, and I’m sorry I missed out on that opportunity. All of these games (minus pikmin maybe) include some of what you said is absent from them, I just failed to highlight it here as I only had my own personal more childhood-oriented feelings in mind. I apologise for that whole heartedly!
Okami is a great game with a female protagonist (though unfortunately non-human) with an entirely Japanese cast. It’s worth considering! 
I plan to make a similar piece to this though! Because there are games which portray what you said were absent, and they need to be recognised so that they can be built upon and not kept as a minority!
