Are we still feeling too depressed to post Ashi?
It's SFW but zone drew a new Ashi pic
Oh. That's okay. Might make me feel better.
I'm out of NSFW shit so if others could post that'd be pretty neat
I think I might have something lying around.
It might not be very explicit, but it's my favorite Jashi picture out there.
In Z0NEs stream yesterday, they animated Ashis mouth to match what piper was saying, and had an Ashi Q&A.
This all ended with her saying "well it was nice existing! good night everyone" and fading away slowly
Just remember Genndy did this,thats all we need to know
>that golden age week of Jashi art between episodes 8 and 9
Did all the artists just get sad and stop drawing or what?
Soon, it's not lewd though. It's a sketch requested over at /co/. I've had only a little bit of time to work on it until now.
[spoiler]The lewd will come in the next few days maybe[/spoiler]
Dude I just can't. I think Its time for me to stop. I'm crying.
Why not the colored version, man?
At the risk of sounding dense, I legit liked the ending.
What I soaked in the most with this ending was its visuals, since visual storytelling is what the show seems to excel at and places a bit more value on it than dialogue.
I felt that it was conveyed that Ashi suspected that she would die when killing Aku. Knowing this, she still went through with the plan, and in dying, she restored the world to the beauty and wonder that Jack once knew and believed that he would never see again. Making the world beautiful again as her last gift to him is something I found to be incredibly romantic, and I feel that the scene at the end under the tree was really beautiful and captured the sentiment well, particularly being a callback to the scene where Jack first shows Ashi the lone tree in Aku's wasteland, except now surrounded by vibrant life instead of death.
I also liked Ashi's journey.
She was preprogrammed to eliminate Jack like so many of the robots we saw in the original run, and artistically I loved watching her transform from that to what she became at the end.
I found it poetic that someone born from darkness that secretly always yearned for the beauty of the world to be shown that beauty by a man and then be the one to restore it for him and everyone else.
Not saying it couldn't have benefited from more time, but I saw a lot of beauty to it that a lot of the criticisms don't seem to address, and I personally found it more satisfying than not.
They built up an interesting likeable character as a counterpart/romantic interest to Jack, she is revealed to be (unnaware of this) Aku's literal daughter, who assumes direct control. Jack breaks her out of this control with the power of love, she creates a time portal and Jack kills aku in the past. and then she gets erased from time as she is walking down the aisle.
At first the ending was hard for me to watch, but after I thought about it for a couple minutes, I started to really like it. It seems grim at first, but the message I thought was that the people in the future managed to live on in a different way from what they were in Aku's timeline (we've seen that souls exist). They all knew that Jack was trying to undo the future, but were willing to risk being erased to make a better world. The tree and forest around it not being destroyed showed that it was now a world free of Aku's destructon. Ladybugs symbolizing lovers, the belief that letting them go will send them to your lover, and that it appeared to Jack underneath that exact tree made it seem to me like she was still with him, they just need to wait longer to be reunited.
Season 5 as a whole felt pretty inspirational. From Jack repeating "It always seems bad at first. But then, I find a way. I always have." To his smile at the end of the last episode. If Jack can smile after all of that, it reminds us that things aren't always so bad.
There was legitimately a shocked pause, but you're seeing art pick back up. Not much smut, though, more 'no, fuck you, good ending happened anyway' art.
Jack and an assassin sent to kill him manage to save one another from their suicidal depression and brainwashing respectively. Becoming comrades, they travel and help one another together, resulting in growing feelings that culminate after a near brush with death.
After this, it's revealed the assassin, Ashi, was actually Aku's daughter, unbenownst even to her. Jack can't bring himself to kill her, and is captured by Aku with his now-enslaved companion. The people of the Earth rise up against Aku, freeing Jack, who saves Ashi from Aku's domination. They travel back in time and slay Aku, but in so doing Ashi is removed from existence, leaving Jack alone with his worst fear: that she'd become nothing but a memory.
I thought the ending to the series was inconsistent. If Aku dies in the past, and Ashi disappears because of causality, then the "current" Jack would also disappear because he is a consequence of a future Aku. The past Jack that got sent to the future would take a different timeline and would never meet Ashi and have her send him back in time.
They should have had ashi disappear immediately after they defeated aku, then there could be this tear jerking scene where they have a short conversation and jack finds out she knew this would happen and maybe she says I love you too or something before completely vanishing. Jack reaches home and it cuts to when he goes into the gloomy forest where this proceeds to happen.
>Are we still feeling too depressed to post Ashi?
Not depressed, but disappointed. I'm quite used to my predictions not coming true, but I kinda expected (hoped) that in ep 9, when Ashi fould Jack showering under the broken pipe, that she would join him and Jack would finally get some real pussy. And in later, Aku would sense that Ashi has been knocked up and would force Jack to choose between going back into the past and abandon Ashi and his soon to be family, or stay in the future, kill Aku and abandon his parents and folk in the past.
Back that time, we didn't know if Ashi was actually really Aku's daughter.
Seductive Ashi is best Ashi.
I get the feeling Genndy wanted to do a completely silent finale. Which I would have been fine with; it's kind of fitting. Now, if only Ashi hadn't explained why she was banishing I would have respected his decision more. Unfortunately he felt that unless he explained it people would just be confused (which, admittedly, he was right about because even after explaining people are still arguing), so he added that. Still, for what he got, I'm satisfied.
Jack is kind of an temporal abnormality due to his status as a time traveler. That's why he was immortal in the first place after all. Once he was in the right timeline he was immune to paradoxes. Ashi, on the other hand...
that feel, that FUCKING feel when jack COULD HAVE BEEN DAMN HAPPY
The Aku from the universe she came from wasn't destroyed. Second, the reason the Ashi from Jack's universe disappeared was because they went back in time and destroyed him before he gave his essence to the cultists and she was born. Because he was destroyed before then, he couldn't do that, causing Ashi to retroactively cease to exist.
I've actually always had an interest in voice acting, and alot of my friends say I would do well at it, but I've never really known how to get started on it. probably once I'm out of college I can look into that kind of thing.
>TFW if Ashi lived she would have looked like her mom when she got older.
Maybe it's not so bad she doesn't exist anymore?
If the guys who do Rick and Morty were to colab with Genndy and make this happen a lot of people would be happy.
Anyway, look on the bright side. Now that Aku doesn't exist the Scotsman has enough time to have even more daughters.
>Cult Mom squeezes an entire squad out of her at once
>Scotsman's wife rears an entire legion of similar aged amazons
Was Aku pumping fertility drugs into the atmosphere or some shit I mean damn son
It's C E L T I C M A G I C lad
If we had had Jaqueline instead of Jack, would you have made Ashi a man or a woman?
DEPRESSED?! For me it's more like an irrepressible rage and desire too take a steel toed boot and kick it so hard up the creators ass his testicles suck up too his throat and out of his own mouth.
I can feel ya. For me the ending hurt because of everything Jack had to give up to beat Aku. He never got to get over the awkwardness of learning to love someone that isn't a family member. And the only person who was able to break down the walls he built to keep what little of his emotional health he had left was taken away from him.
And don't get me started on Ashi, girl had as many issues as Jack.
13 years, but finally someone has done it.
>Did anyone ever do lewds for this character?
Relax anon. I'm personally working on a gift for all the people who got shafted with the finale aka everyone. Its an elseworld series called Cut Into Darkness: a film noir style Samurai Jack spinoff where Ashi DOESN'T DIE.
>This Ashi shit is dead.
TFW when Jack went back to the pass they all never existed.
It's because Jack and Ashi are both very likeable characters who had a very tender and innocent relationship, and incidentally made it hard for people to view them as sexual objects.
Get the Hell off my husband before I turn those braids of yours into a noose!
I loved their chemistry. People complain about episode 8, and in some regards they are right, but I actually love it. Mainly, because it's the first time Jack and Ashi get to have fun in several decades. Just look at the expression they both bore when they jumped off the giant camel, those smiles that said "that was fun".
Sure, then they almost get eaten by an alien made of swarm, but it still led to some wonderful moments.
As character progression goes, I liked it a lot. And even if you disagree about that, their interactions are a treat to watch.
I'm more salty that there could've been more interaction had Jack stayed in the future. Plus killing Aku there would only have erased Ashi's powers. She'd still be alive just back to normal and able to spend her life with the man she obviously fell in love with in episode 6
As for the romamce, it was actually refreshing to see a man who has suffered so much finally find love and happiness with someone who can relate to. And to take all that away was absolutely shit tier writing that only a true hack would be capable of. But the slap in the face was the last scene. To force a sense of "hope" after losing everything was complete and utter bullshit.
>t. just finished episode ten, watched the series as a kid
>there could have been more interaction
not only that, but since we witnessed her entire lifespan, there is no room in the 50 year timeskip to have more canon adventures with her. Genndy didn't just take her from us, he made sure that no one else can EVER give us more of her without it seeming like fanfiction asspulling.
Can you do Ashi in white floral lace lingerie with white stockings and garter belt smiling and in this pose? (white high heels too)
>TFW mommy and daddy say very weird things in their room when they are alone together late at night.
"You see, children, it all began when mommy and her sisters tried to kill me."
"We have aunts?"
Let's go for some more rare r34 from SJ.
>Jack was literally the only source of love Ashi ever had
>had to feel herself fade away minutes before she got to pledge her lifelong love to him
>is now nothing but oblivion
Just pull the fucking trigger on me
You think that's thicc ..? You don't know THICC.
Is there any art of jack and ashi having kinky sex using her powers?
I can totally imagine they laying on bed, cuddling and smiling after a wild night, the room is entirely covered in scratches, ashis eyebrows lit up and set fire to a pillow by accident, but they just laugh it off.
It\s not the size or shape of them that people are complaining about, it's that they are anatomically weird. The right one is positioned too high on her chest and the creases under them make them look pulled round to the right of her body.
This show has fucked me up to the point where this song gets me depressed each time I hear it now because of how much of a kick in the face it was after I watched CI
So I keep seeing this image and I want to know if it's part of an edit or if it is the whole picture
If you're curious beyond saving, go watch it. I'd recommend not, though, because the ending is basically highway robbery for your happiness. Godspeed, anon, if you do, but be warned, it's not a good ending nor a happy one at that.
Spend a day or two in >>>/co/ >>>/co/catalog and follow discussion.
They'll spoiler everything you ever wanted to know. Besides, if (you) had actually read this thread, (you) should have figured it out by now.
There's always google, too. Wikipedia summarizes every episode of every season also, too, additionally.
The new season introduced a girl called Ashi as Jack's romantic interest.
Trained from childhood to kill Jack by a bunch of Aku cultists, but turned good over the season. I think she could have been written better, but it is hard to write romance in 10 episodes only.
She ends up being Aku's literal daughter from the cultists, and inherits some of his powers. She open a time portal and Jack kills Aku in the past.
A few weeks / months / years later in Jack and Ashi's wedding, the time paradox finally caught up with reality of she killing her own father and she ceases to exist right there, TTGL style. This single handily put a halt on nearly all art being drawn for weeks.
Not only it is really depressing, we are also not presented any evidence that the future characters such as the Scottsman, his 30 daughters, and everyone else we also care about, still went to heaven / will be reincarnated in a better future, or if they are just gone forever now. The ending was considered by many fans really bleak compared to the rest of the rather lighthearted series.
Thats why we are depressed, forever.
this literally didnt do anything to fix it. small tits are supposed to PERKY. these are tilted downward, the nips are totally misplaced. if you wanna fix it, you need to move them up toward the top of the breast mound.
Some happy for y'all
