Why Is Wattpad Toxic

DreamWorks VS Pixar: Which Studio 'Won' the Noughties? The University of Southampton's entertainment magazine. Wattpad is the home of fan fiction from Santana and Brittany from Glee to One Direction, Wattpad will have your fan fiction needs fulfilled. It has also been the home to many (and I mean many) cheesy Netflix original movies such as After, which was originally One Direction fanfic with a 50 Shades of Gray vibe. After was a huge part of any young One Direction fan, it focused on the relationship, albeit an extremely toxic one, of Harry Styles and Tessa Young. Wattpad saw teenagers from the ages 13-16 years old becoming authors on this free storytelling site reciting their very own love story with their favorite celebrity or two people they wish were a couple, for example, there is plenty of Demi Lovato and Jennifer Lawrence fanfiction depicting them as a lesbian couple. It is a site that merges Tumblr with teenagers' sexual fantasies and whilst I can admit to once being a huge Wattpad fan and at the age of 14 anticipating the arrival of After the movie, I must admit it also destroyed my life. Everyone who has ever been on Wattpad knows they can no longer get on a plane without thinking your mum has sold you off to Harry Styles to pay for her rent.

And that Harry's first words to you will be "hello luv" whilst you flick your long brunette hair in the wind (yes planes have wind on them now). Or going into surgery for a new heart and finding out Zayn Malik gave you his heart. Wattpad made it virtually impossible not to bring a book, preferably by Jack Keroac, to a concert because "you are not like the other girls". At 13, you'd do a full body shave to go to One Direction concert knowing one of the boys will spot you in the crowd looking disinterested and reading a book as your friend "forced you" to attend. Basically, think Starstruck, the Disney Channel Original movie, but instead you are the protagonist, and this is real life. Though there is the humorous side which sees 'y/n' (your name) meet the Jonas Brothers backstage and then you run away and marry all three of them, Wattpad has a dark and toxic side that is never usually discussed. Many of the fanfics we idolised as teenagers glamorise abuse and predatory behaviour, for example in After, Harry throws a lamp at Tessa for coming home late - behavior we shouldn't be teaching impressionable minds who could consider this behavior usual in a relationship. It also touches on themes surrounding sex and sexuality and dismissing that 'no means no' by showing famous individuals forcing themselves on the protagonist of the story as something cute and romantic. Wattpad has played a huge role in the coming of age years for many teens from across the globe and the name of the site can strike memories of disbelief at your love for hiding your smut on the bus. It was a platform that allowed young creatives to flourish despite the stories being incredibly questionable. However, though it saw teens explore themes of sexuality it did so in ways that glamorise and promote abuse which is why Wattpad has ruined the minds of our generation.

The Quintessential Quintuplets (Japanese:, Hepburn: Go-Tōbun no Hanayome, lit. Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Negi Haruba. It was serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine from August 2017 to February 2020, with its chapters collected into fourteen tankōbon volumes. The series follows the daily life of a high school student Futaro Uesugi, who is hired as a private tutor for a group of identical quintuplets: Ichika, Nino, Miku, Yotsuba, and Itsuki Nakano. At the very beginning of the story, it is shown that the events are being told in a flashback, while an adult Futaro prepares to marry one of the Nakano Quintuplets whose identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The series is published in English by Kodansha USA under the Kodansha Comics imprint. The anime series is licensed in North America under a Crunchyroll-Funimation partnership. An anime television series adaptation produced by Tezuka Productions aired from January to March 2019 on TBS and other channels. The series is a commercial success, being the 5th best-selling manga in 2019, and the 3rd best-selling manga in the first half of 2020 in Japan. In 2019, the manga won the award for the shnen category at the 43rd annual Kodansha Manga Awards. High school student Futaro Uesugi is an academically gifted student that leads a difficult life-his mother has died, he has no friends, and on top of all that, his father has incurred a large amount of debt. An opportunity presents itself when the rich Nakano family transfers to his school.

Throughout the series, Futaro develops special relationships with each of the quintuplets.

Futaro is promptly hired as a highly paid tutor. However, much to Futaro's dismay, he discovers that his five charges-identical quintuplet sisters of varied personalities-have no interest in studying at all and have abysmal grades. Some of the quintuplets are against having Futaro, whom they view as a stranger, in their apartment, but Futaro's diligent tenacity gradually convinces those girls to accept him and to improve their grades. Throughout the series, Futaro develops special relationships with each of the quintuplets. Through a flashforward, it is revealed that he eventually marries one of them, but her true identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The idea of ​​"a group of quintuplets falling in love with the same person" existed even before the serialization of Haruba's previous work, Karma of Purgatory (2014-2015), but was very simple at that time. The idea was denied by his editor-in-charge. A year after, after the end of Karma of Purgatory, he discussed with his editor-in-charge what to serialize next.

10 Strange Facts About Manga

Among the few ideas being come up with, the "quintuplets" idea was included again, which was accepted by the editor this time. After failures in two to three serialization committees, finally, it was decided to have a one-shot manga published first. The one-shot received positive reviews and therefore went on to serialization. It was decided the protagonist should be quintuplets at the very beginning. When later the idea of ​​quadruplets and sextuplets was raised, it was rejected very quickly, around 30 seconds. Haruba said it might be a reference to Super Sentai when he came up with this idea. Similar to Super Sentai, Ichika (yellow), Nino (black), Miku (blue), Yotsuba (green), and Itsuki (red) are all represented by a color. The design of the quintuplets started from his favorite existing female characters from "some slice-of-life works only with girls", around 15 to 20 of them. The idea of ​​adding numbers in their names was after the design was almost confirmed.

The hair color of the Nakano quintuplets is different when being colored, which was suggested by Haruba himself, such that they are more distinguishable from each other. The hair color of the bride in the flashforward is, therefore, a colour-in-between. The flashforward showing that Futaro will eventually marry only one of the Nakano quintuplets was added in order to eliminate the possibility of Futaro marrying all five of them. It was also decided that all quintuplets would have negative feelings towards Futaro from the beginning, because Haruba wanted to write how their relationships improved from hate to love in the story, except Yotsuba, who acts as Futaro's guide for the development of the story. While it is often the norm for harem romantic comedy manga to have sexualized depictions of characters, Haruba has said that he tried to avoid this to some extent after Vol. In his opinion, showing panties which are being worn, ie To keep the characters interesting, the sexy scenes were intended by him to be ambiguous but not straightforward, leading to readers' imagination. The swimsuit appearance of the Nakanos was finally revealed in Ep.
