Lilo and Stitch - ReviewIn honour of its 15th anniversary, and "Stitch Week", here I start my next series of reviews; all four "Lilo and Stitch" movies, beginning with the one that started it all.

To The New Stitch! HatersWell, this is unexpected.
So for those who are reading this for the first time, I'm a former hater of the Stitch anime who's now (kinda) a fan (not it's biggest fan, but I can still enjoy it). I broke off because of all the awful behavior I began to notice happening around me and began to watch the anime on my own, finding out that it wasn't nearly as bad as it had been made out to be and that it had some genuinely good things about it.
When I say I used to be a hater-I mean I used to be damned hater. http://starryblast9.deviantart.com/journal/An-Example-Of-My-Brainwashing-651124585
Above is a link to an old rant of mine I made back in 2014 that should give an idea of how I was in the hatedom. Basically, I was one of the robots-the brainwashed masses that just listened to the aristocrats on top and believed them regardless of how their ideas were or how they acted around others.
So how'd I end up like this? Well, back in 2010, I got the DS Game "Stitc
So Ohana AgainNOTE: This will be a far more personal journal than most, so be aware of that. :/ It'll be going into what exactly happened to give me my views on this and why I'm into this franchise to begin with.
A few months ago I made a journal entitled "Ohana Means...Meh" that explained a bit of why I didn't buy into the phrase.
But its not just the series that's the reason I don't care for it, its also because of several personal experiences I've had; I won't go into too much detail with one, but it does happen to be the most important and the one that set the groundwork for my current attitude.
Basically, to give a general premise of this incident, my mother's sister tried to break up my parent's relationship-and almost succeeded. In the resulting insanity, I got to see reality; that families can be broken ev
An Example Of My BrainwashingI long debated putting this out, but this is what many, many people in the anime's hatedom are like.
Back when I used to hate the anime, I made two rants. One I deleted when I found it stashed away on my iPad, but I kept the other because it showed me just how completely brainwashed I was at the time-not like the other didn't, but this one was the worse of the two.
So, here it is in all its fucking glory:
"Stitch anime review
Stitch- Is terrible in the anime, and for reasons far worse than flanderization or his now irritating personality. Since he has had prior experience with Lilo, he is no longer the "baby" we are used to seeing in the movies and series, but rather a tween or teen (depending on the plotline) who now has knowledge on dealing with kids, and has shown himself to be extremely manipulative, selfish, and shallow. This makes every moment he spends with Yuna rather uncomfortable to watch. At some points in the
Lilo and Stitch - Deleted ScenesI have seen the first three, but who knows where the other ones were discovered. Either way, it's interesting how much this movie has changed since the beginning, and still ended up getting critical acclaim.
In Defense of Myrtle Oh yeah, I'm going here too.
Okay, I want to clarify first that I don't like Myrtle. She's controlling, obnoxious, selfish, and refuses to step outside her comfort zone. She's not someone I'd ever want to be around, much less even know.
On the other hand though, the attitude towards Myrtle is ridiculous. I've seen people saying they want to beat her up, that she's horrible, she needs to die, etc...(typical irritating behavior), but something that's always bothered me is how people degrade her-as in, they just turn her into a one-dimensional bully and ignore any other aspects of her character.
Myrtle was never meant to be likable, but she is still a character, and has both good and bad things about her. Granted the bad shines through much more often, but there are some good things about her.
I see Myrtle's treatment as a warning sign of what was eventually going to be the norm for the approach to disliked characters; ignore their good traits and motivations, as well as their point
On ChangeWhen the anime first came around, people utterly freaked. Rants were made, hate art was made, people cried and screeched noncanon, but all basically said the same thing: Lilo and Stitch should stay together forever.
Here's the thing though: Change happens.
Remember this quote from the first movie?
"Sometimes you try your hardest, but things don't work out the way you want them to. Sometimes thing have to change, and maybe sometimes they're for the better".
Yeah, this is overlooked over stuff like "Ohana means family" and "Cute and fluffy", and maybe it came at a bad time for the movie, but it's still important, and it still holds a lot of weight. Things do happen that are beyond our control, and no matter what we do, things change and things happen-some good, some bad.
Look at, for example, the Pokemon anime. A lot of people in there are begging for change, for something different. People oftentimes like watching shorts and specia
Captured ExperimentsThroughout the series, there's been several instances of Lilo abandoning an experiment, and often, it's not because of necessity. In fact, Lilo can be pretty terrible to the experiments, and this was something that was often ignored by the fandom.
So here fandom, allow me to yet again give you some examples on how Lilo isn't exactly perfect.
In general, abandoning the experiments was a pretty horrible thing to do, not to mention hypocritical of Lilo and of the "Ohana" message the franchise constantly preached. It gets even worse since a lot of experiments weren't abandoned out of necessity, but because of the actions of our adorable little protagonists. Why am I doing this? Oh, because episodes in which experiments got abandoned often happened to be the ones where Lilo's bad side would come out (the only exception being Elastico). Fandom, as usual, ignores this, ignores the severity, excuses it as bad writing, etc., know the drill, let's go...
No One Did Anything.You know, I think the thing that's pissed me off the most about the fanbase is that for a long time, it had issues. And for a long time, it didn't do anything about them. I am LITERALLY one of the first people to actually draw any sort of attention to the fact that the fandom has problems with it. I'm not even going to bother going over some of these damn things in detail since I feel it would be repetitive of me, but I will say that they were allowed to go on for way too long.
So, I suppose I should probably explain my firsthand experience with this fandom since I've been pretty antagonistic towards it these past few months.
When I first came in, I didn't expect much; I knew my personal favorites weren't very popular, but I thought that I would at least find a few people who also liked them. After all, this was the internet, and surely I would be able to find someone out there who shared my interests. After getting weird looks from even my own mom ov
...Really?"There is a common misconception from viewers that Lilo is dependent on Stitch for protection and support; if anything, it is Stitch who is more dependent on Lilo, although as the story progresses he becomes more self conscious and capable of the right decisions thanks to his friend's efforts to help him in life, despite her having her own troubles to contend with. At the end of the series, Stitch has friends, family, a love life and a purpose worth believing in."
"For unknown reasons they decided to get rid of Lilo from the show and leave her absence open to the viewer`s imagination, to replace her with their own character named Yuna."
“Despite having the characters from Lilo & Stitch in the anime, and the English Dub attempting to connect its story to the original franchise, Disney doesn’t consider it canon to the original film and series. Due to complaints about its changes, and contradictions towards the original film; it was cancelled 5
Victoria Means Victory RewriteThe Defender Chronicles:
Victoria means Victory
Our story begins in Jumbas room in Lilos house. Lilo, Victoria, and Stitch were hanging around while Jumba was just finishing his latest invention.
Ahaha! It is finally finished! Jumba cried.
What is it? Victoria asked.
This is my latest evil genius invention that I have been working on it all week Jumba repliled.
Cool! What does it do? Lilo asked.
I have no idea. Jumba said.
Stitch was trying to get a closer look at the invention when he accidentally tripped and hit the start button. The machine then started charging up and flashed a bright light that blinded all of them. When Jumba was able to see again he discovered that Lilo, Stitch, and Victoria were gone.
Little girls! 626! Where are you? Jumba called out.
It was then he heard a beeping on the mac
Victoria means VictoryVictoria means Victory
Our story begins in Jumba’s room in Lilo’s house. Lilo, Victoria, and Stitch were hanging around while Jumba was just finishing his latest invention. Victoria now knows about Lilo’s special eye abilities, although Lilo doesn’t use them much because recently Jumba adjusted her eyes in such a way that she can switch from her Stitch-like eyes to her normal human eyes whenever she wants. Jumba was also able to clone an extra eye for Stitch, so Stitch didn’t have to use his mechanical eye replacement for long. Now they look like they looked before. The only new change is Lilo’s special Stitch-like vision.
“Ahaha! It is finally finished!” Jumba cried.
“What is it?” Victoria asked.
“My latest evil genius invention! I have been working on it all week” Jumba repliled.
“Cool! What does it do?” Lilo asked
Now there is a Group about Lilo and Victoria!hello all fans , as the title say there is a new group Lilo-and-Victoria:iconlilo-and-victoria: made by :icondanielnewton:.
This group is here to help get some art for Lilo and her friend Victoria appeared in 5 of the tv series episodes its time to show the characters some more love and perhaps see if any of us people can submit some ideas of ether fan fics or pictures with Victoria, Lilo, Stitch and Snotty doing some adventures perhaps?
go visit this cool group now and have fun! make sure to remember Lilo and Stitch and Victoria!
Well, I have been thinking for quite some time about setting up a club for Lilo and Victoria and finally, here it is.
As many of you recall, Victoria is a new friend whom Lilo first meets in the episode ‘Swapper’ of the Lilo & Stitch TV series. Mertle tried to manipulate her not to be Lilo`s friend, but despite her best efforts Victoria preferred Lilo (as it turns out she also loved wired things, like Lilo). This resulted in Lilo and Victoria becoming best friends.
But sadly, for unknown reasons Victoria was hardly ever used in the series. She only appeared in 5 episodes of the TV series, being a main character in 2 episodes and a minor character in the other 3. Then after that she totally disappears into the background, apart from getting 2 cameo appearances in the final movie ‘Leroy & Stitch’. I have always felt that Victoria should have been used more often in the series and that her friendship with Lilo should have had much more development. In light of this, the purpose of this club is to give additional support to Lilo and Victoria`s friendship and to give them both new exciting adventures and activities together. Therefore, anybody with artworks, fan fiction stories or has any support towards Lilo and Victoria`s friendship are more than welcome to join the club.Here`s the link:
