Finally ready to post this Bell I worked a lot on 💖🥰💖
Based on this way to expensive doll I personally thought was ugly. She was over ￼$300.

My OCs Molly and Ludwik sharing a quiet moment <3
Ludwik is definitely not a morning person, but Molly relishes in the gentle hum of the world waking up to another day.
I don't agree with the idea that Alina's romance storylines are like a What-if Beauty & The Beast where Belle chooses Gaston. Because Alina isn't half the character Belle was so their character arcs can't really be compared. If one wants to make a comparison with BatB then Alina's story would be more like "what-if one of the Bimbos that pined after Gaston went to the Beast's castle instead of Belle?" And there we'd have a shallow girl whose entire personality revolves around her Chad boyfriend eventually kill the Beast because he's Evil™️ and unnatural. Which is essentially Alina's journey in TGT.

Description: Suzu is a shy, everyday high school student living in a rural village. For years, she has only been a shadow of herself. But when she enters “U”, a massive virtual world, she escapes into her online persona as Belle, a gorgeous and globally-beloved singer. One day, her concert is interrupted by a monstrous creature chased by vigilantes. As their hunt escalates, Suzu embarks on an emotional and epic quest to uncover the identity of this mysterious "beast" and to discover her true self in a world where you can be anyone.
Review: This had the best visuals and it was quite a beautiful journey. I've already seen some hype on the internet. The songs are melodious to hear as well.
The plot was a bit confusing as I wasn't too sure who the ML is. The potential two ML's had about equal screentime and most of the time it makes us believe that the beast was someone very close to our FL.
The ending also wasn't very satisfactory. It doesn't really solve anything and it doesn't show us what happens to them later? A bit unrealistic of an ending.
The anime isn't much like Beauty and the Beast and only symbolises it. I'm also not too sure what songs I like the best from this anime. It's just so beautiful to listen to. The anime is also really emotional at parts and made a tear drop.
The anime also has 2D and 3D animation with 3D animation mainly used to distinguish real life from the game.
Regardless, a lovely anime to watch. If you love many of the animes from Mamoru Hosoda then I'll guarantee that you'll like this too!
Rating: ✧✧✧.8/5 stars!
There's a new Belle in town — and she's shattering all kinds of princess beauty standards
If you ask a young child to describe the heroine from “Beauty and the Beast,” they might reference the slim, fair-skinned Disney princess in the memorable blue-and-white dress from the animated movie or the petite Emma Watson from its live-action remake.
In the production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” currently running at the Olney Theatre Center in Maryland, however, Belle is played by Jade Jones, a self-described queer, plus-sized Black woman.
The production’s Tony Award-nominated director, Marcia Milgrom Dodge, said Jones’s presence has made an impact on the audience from the very beginning. After the cast sang about the most beautiful girl in town during the opening number, Jones stepped on stage. “Little Black girls in the audience screamed out, ‘Is that Belle?’” Dodge recounted. “And it’s not just a Black Belle who fits into the size 2 replica dress, but a plus-size Belle. So [all] little girls can dream big about them being princesses, too.”
“I never imagined I would play a Disney princess in my entire life,” Jones said. “I mean, there were never any Disney princesses who looked like me…. It’s just a dream to do a show like this that I never thought I would be cast in. I’m living my musical theater dreams.”
It’s almost 1 AM but in the song Belle from Beauty and the Beast the villagers sing “I need six eggs” “that’s too expensive!” and then later in the song Gaston, Gaston says “when I was a lad I ate four dozen eggs every morning to help me get large, now that I’m grown I eat five dozen eggs so I’m roughly as large as a barge” Gaston has been eating dozens of eggs every day for his entire life and is single handedly creating an artificial egg scarcity in the village and driving up egg prices. this economy is in shambles.
I can’t wait to get a live action movie where Disney delves into the backstory of Gaston and they reveal that his mom got crushed by a bookshelf to explain why he hates educated women that read.
