okay so my Grandparents gave me this naruto video game for christmas and i haven’t really played it at all, but my Dad freaking loves it
i didn’t even know he was playing it until a while ago he came up to me and looked me really intensely and just whispered “believe it”
this episode is such an amazing breakdown of all the grossness inherent to the Nice Guy and friend zone concepts so popular with the media. and dang! when he publicly invites her to the big dance, and she wants to say no but she feels like she can’t because everyone else is watching and explicitly waiting for her to say yes (because they all think of gideon as this sweet darling who deserves whatever he wants) — what a great, precise criticism of everything that’s yeeky about public proposal
I… really have to watch this show…
Gravity Falls is a really good show.
