[HIRING] Looking for an animator to join team working on an anime pilot
The team working on the “ReBirth: Broken Memory” animation is in need of a 5th animator to join the roster and help bring the full episode to completion. The animation itself is 25 minutes long and roughly 50-60% complete, with the work being divided evenly among the animators on board.
Here is a link to a 2-minute clip of the animation
The animator must be able to:
  • Use Adobe Animate
  • Use Western time charts
  • Provide a portfolio of work
  • Be experienced in anime-style character illustration with attention to detail or good adaptability
  • Have a good understanding of animation principles, anatomy & lighting
  • Can schedule 8 hours or more weekly for this project, self-tasking in flexible hours
Applying animators will be required to draw/sketch one frame from a storyboard panel as a reference for a quick test.
This position will pay $2,500 USD. The animator will receive $500 in an upfront deposit with the remaining $2,000 divided every 25% of work completed or 10% of work completed (depending on how the animator would like to be paid).
For any who may be interested, please message me with a ready portfolio.

2023.06.06 18:16 SlowhandAN World Premiere of The Eminence in Shadow 2nd Season at Anime Expo

World Premiere of The Eminence in Shadow 2nd Season at Anime Expo
HOUSTON, TX — JUNE 6, 2023— HIDIVE, AMC Network’s fast-growing anime streaming service and home to some of Japan’s hottest new series, announced today that it will host the world premiere of The Eminence in Shadow 2nd Season in Los Angeles, Calif. at next month’s Anime Expo, the largest annual anime convention in North America. Presented in partnership with Kadokawa, this first-ever dual world premiere event features separate English subtitled and dub premieres of The Eminence in Shadow 2nd Season Episode 1 on July 1 and July 4, respectively. Each premiere will include a post screening Q&A session. The July 1 subtitled premiere will include Japanese cast member Seiichiro Yamashita (voice of Cid/Shadow), while the July 4 dubbed premiere will include English dub cast members Adam Gibbs (voice of Cid/Shadow) and Christina Kelly (voice of Alpha).

Petree Hall – Los Angeles Convention Center
“We are truly honored to partner with Kadokawa and co-present the world premiere of The Eminence in Shadow 2nd Season together with them,” said John Ledford, President of HIDIVE. “Anime Expo provides the perfect stage to debut the highly anticipated second season of The Eminence in Shadow for both sub and dub fans. This world premiere not only spotlights the series’ huge North American fanbase but also recognizes the global popularity of The Eminence in Shadow.”
Based on Daisuke Aizawa’s hilarious isekai light novel series of the same name, The Eminence in Shadow first premiered last fall on HIDIVE. The fantasy-action series quickly gained popularity with fans as well as garnered media praise including “Next Isekai Hit” ( and “Anime Sleeper Hit” (Collider). The 2nd Season promises to deliver The Eminence in Shadow’s unique isekai mix of fantasy, action and humor that fans have come to adore — transporting audiences seamlessly back into the world of the Shadow Garden as if they never left…
Everything has been going according to plan, but the hour of awakening draws near. Cid Kageno and Shadow Garden investigate the Lawless City, a cesspool where the red moon hangs low in the sky and three powerful monarchs rule the streets. The true draw for Cid, however, is one who can draw blood–the Blood Queen, a vampire who has slumbered in her coffin for eons. Her awakening approaches, and Cid could finally face a day of reckoning.
The Eminence in Shadow returns this October for its exciting second season.

2023.06.06 18:15 warlokzz Does anyone else wish the devs would update the game to speed it up a bit?

I love to play Gwent and I want to play it for hours a day, but Injust can't. Everything in Gwent feels so slow. The card drawing, card playing, targeting, card animations, everything. It feels like its playing at .5x speed. Does anyone else feel the same?

2023.06.06 18:14 Lord_Guyis Season 2 Episode 22 Anime and Manga Differences

Alright, here are the differences and comparisons between the anime and manga for season 2 episode 22. Standard disclaimers: 1. this is pretty much spoiler-free, I will only talk about the portion of content from the manga that was covered in the episode. 2. a difference one way or the other is not inherently a good or bad thing. I'll probably dislike the anime's changes, but those are my judgements, you have yours. 3. I am comparing the official english versions of the material that I have easily available to me, as such I'm comparing 2 different translations, I'm aware the two JP versions almost certainly have identical wording in most parts (and that Netflix is just using the manga lines, for the most part). With that said, let us begin.
This episode covers all of chapter 96 (including the cover page), all of 97 (though the order of it is mixed around), and the cover page for 98. Totaling 58 pages.
And that ends this one. Quite a solid episode though I, of course, have my gripes. Not a big fan of all the flashes of past events, like I said, I remember, and I appreciate the manga just trusting me to do so. Before you argue that it's been so long since season 1, it had been a similar amount of time (if not longer) between the chapters coming out in the manga. 40+ chapters between the end of the prologue and these chapters, at the least that's right around 4 years (and again the "you have no enemies" was already brought back up earlier THIS season). Aside from that I also really don't care for the art style of whatever animator was in charge of the big scene with Canute and then Einar yelling at him. They are clearly very skilled, but it just looks really ugly to me. Otherwise I did feel that all the important moments did land as they should have, so it was overall very solid.

2023.06.06 18:13 DangerRacoon Think I'm going to be stuck as a traditional artist for a while now, So i may as well ask how do I make my drawings look better on paper or my camera?

Been dealing with something me and my parents for a while now, Basically we had a relative of ours who had helped us out on getting a drawing tablet, Because for some reason my parents refuse to buy anything physical online, Anyways, It reached my country and everything it was on my relative's house, Good news, And everything, I was supposed to get it the day after it got shipped to my country, But my mom was busy, So I had to wait like 4 days, Alright, Mom finally's done, And I was told the thing would come today, Asked mom again, And its tomorrow, And I feel like this is going to be scattered in endless delays, So I may as well forget about the drawing tablet in general, It got here and everything, But whats the point.
This is a plea for help, As I'm starting to hate, Drawing on paper, I'm starting to despise it, I just feel its inferior in every way possible, I just can't bare to touch pencil, And I don't want that to happen, I didn't begin hate drawing, I just began to hate drawing on paper, Oh I wanna share it to anyone? my picture quality looks freaking horrible, I planned to train myself on my drawing tablet, And start doing decent enough art to do commissions and design stuff, Not for an actual job, But more like a side gig, A summer job at best.
Yes, Everything seems genuine, It got there, And what not, But these delays are making me lose it, I'm beginning to give up on this, And just continue on drawing on paper, Do people commision other people who draw on paper? Why would I show my desktop, It looks ugly, I'm not showing anything that isn't my paper, I care about my privacy in real life.
I'll be damned, If I have actually seen someone who actually got commissioned who draws on pencil and paper, With semi bad camera quality, And black and white, I'd literally like to meet them and tell them that they are my hero.
Not to mention how I feel so restricted on drawing on paper, I have so much big ideas to draw on my head, Yet I refuse too because I can't fit them on paper, And they are going to look freaking terrible if anything on paper unlike digital, Most people prefer things digitally, Its like sprinkles, And other stuff that appeals to anyone, Its like make up to your drawings.
I'm sorry but its been stressing me for a while, And I just need help figuring out how to make things way better with drawing on paper, I have been doing nothing but drawing animals on paper, And thats it, Just animals, Ferrets, Whatever on paper, Do they look good? Yes, But if I took a picture of it, The quality would look horrible, Those are only meant for my drawing training, Do I enjoy drawing animals on paper? Yes, But I'm getting tired, I wanna draw things that I want, Not animals.
I'm so sorry for all of this but like, I'm just done with this, And I think its about time I deal with me and paper. And try to turn things into the better instead. Since this is going nowhere anyways. So help a pal out.

2023.06.06 17:37 ElessarofGondor Where to draw the line on spending on pets?

I know the Church teaches that we shouldn't spend frivolously on pets for things that could rather go to help humans but it seems really hard to draw the line.
Recently I took one of our cats into the vet to get routine vaccines (these seem reasonable since they're not that much and protect against deadly diseases that could also be spread to humans). However while there they tried to sell me bloodwork and a teeth cleaning. To be honest the cleaning probably would do some good but it's kind of expensive for a young family with children and money isn't exactly flowing in. On the other hand I would feel bad if the cat ended up having severe dental problems because of this.
It seems like animal care is getting more and more excessive these days. Before we moved we had the type of vet that just wanted to see them if there was a problem or if they needed a vaccine. Now it seems like they want to provide almost human level care, and the way our society is they go along with this. When does care go beyond just being stewards of creation with our pets?

2023.06.06 17:31 Kadkata_the_Great Tips on climbing with Gwen and her role in the team.
Hello, I am a Gwen main that recently hit Masters for first time playing on a 10 years old forgotten by the MMR gods account with abysmal LP win-lose ratio bringing it up from Bronze to Masters in 457 games with 57% WR overall and 62% WR on Gwen from 301 games. This post has few purposes:

BAD takes that you should not follow

Key concepts that you have to understand to make this playstyle work for you

Tricks that you might or might not be aware of:




Nashor's Tooth

Rabadon's Deathcap

I build in this order in >90% of my games. Go Nashor first if splitpushing is going to be completely uncontested. Start Doran's Ring unless its against a lot of poke in which case go Doran's Shield. Do not buy HP Pots, only buy refillable.


Cosmic Drive Good AP, CDR, speed. Frequent build after Rabadon.
Void Staff When more than a few enemies have MR items. Overall increses damage. %pen is strong. Frequent build after Rabadon.
Lich Bane Good for faster splitpushing or nuking their squishies with E->AUTO. I recommend as last buy or sell boots to buy this when you have enough gold at full build.
Shadowflame vs frequent shielding and squishier teams. Good AP ammount and pen. I would buy this against a fed ADC with enchanter support.
Zhonya's Hourglass vs fed AD assassins or generally AD heavy teams.
Morellonomicon vs teams with a lot of healing. I never build this.
Thornmail vs AD heavy teams that also have a lot of healing. Occassional purchase.
Randuin's Omen vs teams that have a lot of damage from critical strikes. Example: Yone top, Yasuo mid and Draven ADC.
Spirit Visage vs teams with a lot of AP damage and prolonged fights. I do not build.
Force of Nature vs teams with a lot of AP damage. Generally better than Spirit Visage.
Abyssal Mask Great cheap item vs a lot of AP damage and when you have 2-3 AP on yours.
There are other items that could work like Wit's End or Death's Dance but it is extremely rare that it would be a better choice than any of the items above.


I have bought all boots on Gwen except mobility boots. It is very dependant on enemy champions and how ahead I am. Usually I buy Mercs into a lot of CC, Steelcaps into AD heavy teams and Lucidity boots if I am very ahead.


These runes will be most useful to you in majority of games. Swap armor and MR runes depending on your matchup. Go Second Wind instead of Conditioning vs poke matchups like Teemo or Gangplank. I like to pick Bone Plating against burst champions like Pantheon or Renekton. I climbed from Bronze to Diamond without Demolish, but my climb would have been way easier if I went Demolish instead of Unflinching due to the extra plates it can secure. I take it every game now. Presence of Mind is unnecessary and Triumph enables you to fight multiple enemies easier. It also gives you 20g per takedown extra which at the end of the game if you had 15 takedowns ends up being 300g. In my many games playing Gwen I can recall only a few times I wished I got Presence of Mind over Triumph. If you are nearing 0 mana then shove wave and walk up in river to get green slime plant.
Teleport is too useful not to take every game. For second spell I go Ignite for most games. Take Ghost if the kill pressure on lane is small AND the rest of their team is very mobile/ranged, for example a Malphite top lane with Kalista Rakan botlane, Azir mid and Hecarim jungle. That is a comp that you pick Ghost against. If the enemy team doesn't have a lot of mobility or you have easy lane on top then you should take Ignite. Makes tower dives much easier.


I cheese my games. I play around my enemy's mental and abuse Gwen's strengths. The account I played on was hardstuck Gold for many seasons, sometimes ending in Silver. My mental is not strong, I ran it down many times out of spite towards a teammate. My average vision score is 2x lower than that of an average Iron player. Despite all this my climb was steady with the exception of spending a decent ammount of time and games in D1, because I relaxed too much in my games. My point is that if I manage to climb like this, so can you. Just follow the template each game:
If I think of something else I will add it in an edit.

2023.06.06 17:26 Resident_Artist_2199 Help a Poor Noob Tweak His V60?

I'm going to be honest, I'm so new to this. I joined these coffee Subreddits to up my coffee quality because good coffee is a rare joy in my otherwise stressful life. I started off reading obsessively, watching some YouTube videos when I can, and tinkering with recipes I've found here and there. But I'm realizing how much my inexperience is limiting me. A lot of these recipes have a LOT of variables that aren't always easy for novices like me to recreate over and over again. This has made it very hard for me to get anywhere, really. I'm churning through bags of coffee only to find that I've made maybe two enjoyable cups per bag, with no good starting point.
The Hoffman 1-cup recipe and the 4:6 method HAVE given me a good cup here and there, but not repeatedly. I have a less than mediocre kettle and it pours very inconsistently, making these methods with multiple pours quite treacherous. And I've noticed that even keeping every aspect of the brew the same, my inability to pour with adequate control has resulted in wildly varying extractions from cup to cup (according to my untrained palate, granted). My grinder is decent, but not amazing. The Kingrinder K6 gives me pretty consistent grinds, but since I drink strictly Ethiopian light roasts, the fines are quite unavoidable.
I've essentially started over from scratch, taking what I think I've learned from other recipes, and created something that keeps things manageable and repeatable with my equipment and skill level. But even my untrained palate knows there's probably some improvement that could be made, so I wanted to run it by this community because you guys are an absolute trove of knowledge and experience.
First things first: for this recipe I'm using Mamo Kacha Ethiopian from ReAnimator Coffee. It's a washed process light roast with tiny, dense beans. I'm brewing using incredibly hard and chlorinated tap water that's been run through a Brita filter. The resulting water is quite tasty, I think, and I'm in no rush to start mineralizing my own water for brewing.
I'm using just below a 1:16 ratio, with 16g of beans to 250ml of water. I'm using a "medium-fine" grind, which is 72 clicks on the Kingrinder K6. The grind looks like this. I'm using water directly off of a boil for this brew. My kettle only gives me preset options of 195F, 205F, and boil.
I create a small well in the center of the bed and bloom using 50g of water for approximately 50 seconds. I don't swirl the bed; I stir gently with a spoon to saturate the grounds. At 50 seconds I begin pouring again in tight central circles and I aim to have 150g in total by 1:20.
Around 1:45 I begin pouring again, this time in gentle outward circles (avoiding the far edges of the bed), trying to have my full brew weight in the dripper by 2:05ish. When the full weight is in, I give 1 very gentle stir clockwise and counterclockwise, just to knock any bigger grounds off of the filter wall. At this point, I just wait for my draw down to finish and I haven't been worrying about a level bed. My brew has been consistently finishing around 3:40 - 3:45 and the resulting cup is better than any I've gotten with other methods.
I'm really just looking for a good starting point that'll suit a lot of different variations of basic Ethiopian beans. I think this might be a decent beginning point, but like I'd love to compare this with other incredibly simplistic approaches to brewing Ethiopians with the V60.

2023.06.06 17:26 Odd-Sail5150 Roommate Neglecting Animals

I live in a house with 3 other roommates, one of which has several animals (reptiles and two cats, all of whom are confined to her room).
For the past 4 months (really the past 8, but it has gotten significantly worse since February), she has left the house for up to 13 days at a time without telling us. We don’t know where she is, when she will come back, etc., which puts us in the uncomfortable position of taking care of her animals (food, water) for an indefinite amount of time. I have frequently checked in on the cats and found them with no water and food, barf on the floor, and litter boxes full of cat excrement.
The litter boxes are a problem in and of itself. They are scooped at most once every 2 weeks (by her if she’s here, we draw the line at scooping those boxes) which has created its own issues (half of the house generally smells like a barnyard).
We have tried for months to politely adjust this behavior, but any amount of criticism, be it constructive or deconstructive, is met with defensive behavior and no real change. I am at the point where I am ready to surrender these animals or at least report neglect, and my other two roommates are in agreement.
Additionally, I very directly told her (and her bf who enables the behavior) that after months of this we are tired and change needs to happen. I mentioned the smell of the room, the neglect, and my willingness to report it, and they have completely blown up on me, taking issue with the fact that they were criticized for something I feel is horrible and irresponsible.
I need advice please!

2023.06.06 17:21 ArthurDrakoni Riordan Retrospective: Daughter of the Deep

Welcome once again to my Riordan Retrospective. For those of you just joining the fun, this is my look back at the works of Rick Riordan. That means Percy Jackson, its sequels, and spin-offs. This is less of a formal review and more of a relaxed look back.
Last time, we finished our look back at The Trials of Apollowith a look back at The Tower of Nero. We thought that we’d said goodbye to the worlds of Rick Riordan. Little did we know that a new book was about to surface. As such, we’re taking a look back at Daughter of the Deep.
Ana Dakkar is about to finish her freshman year at Harding-Pencroft Academy. It is a five-year academy specializing in marine science. She, and her nineteen classmates, are about to begin their freshmen trials. Harding-Pencroft holds its students very high standards. However, before they can take off, the school is destroyed by a series of sonic torpedoes. The remaining students and professors of Harding-Pencroft regroup aboard their yacht the Varuna. Ana discovers several major revelations. Jules Verne’s novels 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and The Mysterious Island were based on actual events. Captain Nemo was indeed a real person, and Ana is his direct descendant. In fact, the whole point of Harding-Pencroft Academy is to safeguard Nemo’s legacy and technology. Their next stop is Lincoln Island, the final resting place of Nemo and the Nautilus. But danger lurks around every corner as the survivors of Harding-Pencroft are hunted by their old rivals: Land Academy.
Well, it looks like we’re back sooner than I expected. I thought we’d be back for that Irish Mythology book Rick said he was planning. However, that seems to have been put on the back-burner. Daughter of the Deep apparently has been a long time coming. Way back in 2009, Disney executives asked Rick what Disney property he would want to write a book based on. It could be anything he wanted. He chose 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, as the 1954 film adaptation is one of his favorite movies. Technically, Disney only owns the rights to the movie, not the original book. The original Verne novel has long since slipped into the public domain. I’m tempted to think that Rick was, at least somewhat, trolling the executives.
I actually went back and watched the 1954 movie adaptation of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. I agree with Rick here. The movie is, I must say, a truly underrated gem among live-action Disney films. In fact, I might even give it its own review at some point. Now, the movie does take some liberties with the source material. Though, personally, I’d say that was to its benefit, as it made for a more engaging story that worked better in film. Verne was known for doing a lot of research with his novels, and often devoted entire paragraphs to explaining the science in detail. Unfortunately, this does make for a rather dry reading experience. I’ve heard Verne works better in the original French, but that is a language I do not speak. Amusingly, students at Harding-Pencroft are required to read 20,000 Leagues Under the Seaand The Mysterious Island. Ana found them both to be a bit dry for her taste. I myself enjoyed The Mysterious Islandslightly more than 20,000 Leagues, but it still suffered from many of the same issues.
I’ve heard a few people wonder what it might be like if Rick Riordan were to write a science fiction novel. Well, we now have our answer. We know more about the surface of the Moon than we do our own deep oceans. Twelve people have walked on the surface of the Moon, but only two have ever been to the bottom of the Marianas Trench. Ocean-based science fiction is still comparatively rare compared to space-based or terrestrial-based science fiction. So, I’m glad to see that Daughter of the Deep tapped into some of the vast potential of ocean-based science fiction.
Now, I should probably clarify that Daughter of the Deep is set outside of the Riordanverse. Rick has confirmed that it takes place in its own self-contained world. So, don’t expect to see any cameos from Percy, Annabeth, or any other Riordanverse characters. Still, it is similar enough in terms of style to a typical Riordanverse novel, and thus, I’ve chosen to include it as part of the retrospective.
Speaking of style, let’s begin there. Rick has said he took a film writing course before he wrote Daughter of the Deep. That is very apparent in how the prose itself is written. It reads very much like a movie script. The narration is presented in first-person present tense. This helps add to the sense of action and urgency as the plot movies along. The pacing also feels very much like what you might find in a movie. We got a lot of action scenes in quick succession. We get the usual info dumps, but we don’t really take as much time for introspection. As we’ll discuss a bit later, this lack of introspection was very much to the book’s detriment. I’m willing to bet that all this is very much by design. Daughter of the Deep is being adapted into a movie on Disney+. In fact, the movie was announced even before the book came out. So, it certainly feels like Rick wrote Daughter of the Deep with an eye towards the movie adaption.
I would have liked if we had gotten to explore Harding-Pencroft Academy a bit more before it got destroyed. What brief glimpses we do see are utterly fascinating. The students are all decided into four different houses based on their area of study. Yeah, they’ve heard all the Harry Potter jokes plenty of times. Though, personally, when I saw the initials HP in an ocean-themed book, I briefly wondered if Rick Riordan was going to tackle the Lovecraft Mythos. Back on topic, the houses are Dolphin, Shark, Cephalopod, and Orca. Dolphin focuses on communications, exploration, cryptography, and counterintelligence. Shark handles command, combat, weapons systems, logistics. Cephalopod deals with engineering, applied mechanics, innovation, and defensive systems. Orca is all about medicine, psychology, education, marine biology, and communal memory. If you’re wondering about that last one, it basically means the history of Harding-Pencroft and Captain Nemo.
One of the things I appreciated was that each of the four main characters is from a different house. One of my gripes about Harry Potter is that pretty much all the important characters come from Gryffindor. Well, unless they’re a villain, and come from Slytherin. Ravenclaw had Luna and Cho, I guess, but Hufflepuff got the short end of the stick for sure. Getting back on track, having the four main protagonists of Daughter of the Deep be from different houses provided a theme that everyone has something unique to bring to the table. You can also see it as advocating for multiculturalism, but without being preachy about it. However, I do have on criticism. House Orca needed a better name. Orcas are a type of dolphin, the largest, in fact. We’ve got representatives for mammals, fish, and mollusks. How’s about giving some love to the reptiles? Personally, I would have named them House Sea Turtle instead. Or failing that, show some love to the echinoderms, and name them House Seastar. House Sea Cucumber would also work. Don’t give me that look! Sea cucumbers are noble animals and wonders of nature.
I do wish that we’d gotten to see more of Harding-Pencroft before it was destroyed. What brief glimpses we do get are utterly fascinating. As you might expect, they have quite an expansive aquarium full marine creatures. Upperclassmen train in submarine simulations using full-size mock-up submarines submerged in deep pools. However, the most fascinating class is one where students get to consider, and theorize, about the ways technology and science might have developed had history gone differently. As a major fan of alternate history I have but one thing to say: sign me up now! Well, its actually there as a way to slowly ease the students into learning the truth about Captain Nemo and his inventions. Still, sounds like a very fun class to take. I also liked how the various sections of the school are named after famous ocean explorers. There’s one part named after the Chinese navigator Zheng He, and one named after the polar explorer Ernest Shackleton.
I thought all of the diving scenes were particularly well-written. Rick Riordan has a true passion for scuba diving. This really shines through during the diving scenes. I also really like how the diving suits all use jet-propulsion that mimics the siphons of cephalopods. That was a really creative touch.
Okay, let’s talk about the characters. Ana is the protagonist, but I want to save her for last. We’ll start with her roommates, and best friends, Nelinha and Ester. Nelinha da Silva grew up in an orphanage in Rio de Janeiro, but got to attend Harding-Pencroft on a scholarship. She’s also the closest the series gets to referencing Percy Jackson and the Olympians. I can best describe Nelinha as what would happen if Charles Beckendorf and Silena Beauregard were to have a kid. And, you know, if they were still alive. She’s a complete mechanical genius, and geeks out over machines and engine parts. She’s a member of House Cephalopod, naturally. However, she is also obsessed with fashion, and always makes sure to look her best at all times. Nelinha doesn’t just pack outfits, she packs entire wardrobes.
One of my prior complaints about Rick Riordan is that he only seems to know how to write one type of female character. Namely, he seems to believe that being a strong female character means being a tomboy who hates all things girly. So, it was nice to see Nelinha as a course correction on that front. Nelinha being from Brazil is likely a nod to how popular Rick Riordan’s books are in Brazil. So, I’m sure Brazilian fans were excited to finally get a Brazilian main character.
On the flipside, we also get Ester Harding. She’s a member of House Orca. She is a blood relative of one of the founders of Harding-Pencroft. She is also the first autistic character in a Rick Riordan book. I’m still bitter about how he wrote a Muslims character before he wrote an autistic character. In the Riordanverse, anyone can be a demigod, unless you’re autistic, it would seem. I had high hopes for Ester. You don’t see autistic girls too often in the media. Riordan has said that he got sensitivity readers to help him with writing characters from different cultural backgrounds. However, it would seem none of them offered insight into autistic people. It almost feels like Riordan watched a couple episodes of The Good Doctor and was like “I got this!” You know those TikTok clips of that guy having a temper tantrum while shouting “I am a surgeon!” Yeah, that’s The Good Doctor. It was another show I had high hopes for, but fell back on stereotyping autistic people. Don’t get me started on my problems with The Good Doctor, we’ll be here all day.
Anyway, Ester displays a number of stereotypical traits. She yo-yos between being basically non-verbal, and shouting at the top of her lungs. She does this all in a robotic monotone voice. In contrast to Nelinha, Ester has basically no fashion sense, and seems to be going for the long-lost daughter of Albert Einstein look. Ester also doesn’t have much in the way of common sense, and though it never comes up, she’s probably Jewish. Not too many gentiles name Ester. She’s got an excellent memory, to the point of being almost eidetic, but that’s somewhat accurate. Well, maybe not eidetic, but most autistic people do often have amazing memories. How do you think I’m about to write these retrospectives?
Ana briefly remarks about how some people claim that autistic people can’t feel love or other emotions, and that Ester proves this isn’t true, due to how empathetic she is. Again, this is true, as autistic people can be quite empathetic. Though, I can’t help but wonder if Disney specially made Rick insert that line to cover their asses. See, this isn’t the first time Disney has tackled autism. There was an episode of Girl Meets World about how we should all be nice to autistic people. All well and good, but they also claim that autistic people are incapable of experiencing emotions, including love.
Gemini Twain has been assigned as Ana’s bodyguard. He’s a no-nonsense member of House Shark. He’s also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints. This is certainly an interesting choice, as Gemini is also Black. Historically, Mormons haven’t exactly gotten along well with Black people. Or Native Americans, or Polynesians, or…well, pretty much anybody who isn’t White. The most infamous instance was when Mormon schools refused to desegregate. The American government threatened to revoke their tax exemption status, but wouldn’t you know it, Mormon God rather conveniently changed his mind about Black people. Though, Gemini’s faith doesn’t really come up that much. He doesn’t like swearing or taking the lord’s name in vein, and he mentions his grandma raised him and his brother in the LDS church, but that’s about it. Well, he did get into a minor scuffle with Nelinha. Gemini’s brother went on his mission trip to Brazil, and Gemini assumed Nelinha would know his brother, because she’s from Brazil.
Well, nice touch having one of the non-White characters be flawed enough to be accidentally racist. I remember back in The Hammer of Thor retrospective when I said, paraphrased, “A Muslim demigod? What’s next, a Mormon demigod?” I have on occasion wondered if Rick Riordan reads these retrospectives. Probably a long shot, but you never know.
Technically, there is a fifth main character: the Nautilusitself. It took until about halfway through the book before the Nautilus showed up. Yeah, this book has some pacing issues. The Nautilus has what can best be described as an artificial intelligence system. Also, apparently it also includes some organic components. As you might imagine, it is extremely untrustworthy of anyone who isn’t a blood relative of Prince Dakkar, aka Captain Nemo. So, Ana’s biometrics are key to unlocking the Nautilus.
Unfortunately, the Nautilus also highlights one of the issues I had with the book. Apparently, every major invention of the 20th Century was a result of Harding-Pencroft discreetly releasing them to the public. That, or Land Institute stealing them. This caused Daughter of the Deep to evoke the Great Man Theory of History. The theory goes that society gets stuck in ruts until a great man, and it’s always a man, shakes up the status quo and moves the world forward. This view has largely fallen out of favor with mainstream historians. Most historians emphasis how the changes were put into motion, often by complex chains of influences, long before the supposedly great men came about.
You do kind of get this with the main Riordanverse, where pretty much anyone who did anything was either a demigod or a magician. However, that was softened by just how many demigods and magicians there were throughout history. So, it felt more like a team-effort. By contrast, Daughter of the Deep gave us a single scientific übermensch who, apparently, leapfrogged from steam-power to cold fusion reactors. Now, granted, this is also true of Nemo in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Still, maybe Rick shouldn’t have depicted Nemo in such a lock, stock, and barrel sort of way.
And that segues into my next point. Harding-Pencroft is deathly afraid of letting the general public get access to Nemo’s technology. They only release technology sparingly, and only when they feel humanity has earned it. Uh, and what metric do they use to determine how worthy humanity is? Beats me, the book offers no details. The adults all make a big deal about how corporations would try to monopolize Nemo’s technology, but nobody ever suggests releasing it as open-source tech. Well, I know the real reason for that. There’s no way that Disney, the poster boy for copyright abuse, is going to be advocating for open-source. A particularly facepalm worthy moment is that fact that Harding-Pencroft refuses to release cold fusion technology…despite climate change being a serious issue! The book would have you believe Harding-Pencroft are the good guys. However, I’m tempted to think Land Institute had a point about Harding-Pencroft being corrupt and selfish.
Hey, wait a minute. Harding-Pencroft is a secretive organization that is very selective of its membership. It trains its students so that, effectively, they’re cut-off from the outside world. They indoctrinate their students from a young age into their views. They have charismatic leaders and founders. Yikes, I hope the cafeteria never served Kool-Aid! Harding-Pencroft is a cult!
It would seem that Harding-Pencroft has something akin to the Prime Detective from Star Trek. There has been a lot of debate about the morality of the Prime Detective. The main thinking seems to be don’t give advanced weaponry to civilizations that aren’t morally mature. The Original Seriesalso says that it is okay to break the Prime Directive if a planet is in imminent danger. Contrast this with Next Generation, where one episode has Captain Picard dithering about if he should save a planet, even if it break the Prime Directive. Of course, the worst offender was Voyager. It had an episode where the moral was, basically, don’t save a baby trapped in a burning car, or else the baby will grow-up to be Hitler. Yeah, the Prime Directive kind of devolved into an immoral religious dogma as Star Trek went on.
Point is, Harding-Pencroft’s Prime Directive seems to lean towards that of the later Star Trek entries. Apparently, screw the planet, we need to keep the tech away from corporations! The irony of Disney railing against corporations is so thick you can practically cut it with a machete. Also, if the concern is that the corporations would hoard stuff like the cure for cancer, well, how’s that any different than what Harding-Pencroft is doing?
Much is made about how Ana must choose to reconcile both the good and the bad of Nemo’s legacy. However, nothing really comes of this. We don’t see her seriously debate or challenge Harding-Pencroft and Land Institute’s views of Nemo. In fact, she gets indoctrinated into Harding-Pencroft’s views pretty quickly. It would have been a great opportunity to show Nemo’s complexity, not just tell us about it. How many innocent lives did he take in his quest for vengeance? Should he have shared his technology with the oppressed peoples chafing under the yoke of colonialism? Is it possible that Land Institute has some valid points, and that Harding-Pencroft has lost its way? All excellent questions that sadly go unanswered.
As for why that is, it ties into the biggest problem I have with Daughter of the Deep. Overall, it feels like merely the novelization of the yet to be produced movie. I was hoping that the novel would be able to stand on its own merits. However, Riordan clearly wrote it so that the adoption process would be streamlined. Debating ethics might not translate to film. Though, it could work in the hands of a competent scriptwriter.
I feel this streamlining was ultimately to the novel’s determent. I certainly didn’t hate Daughter of the Deep. It had plenty of the action and adventure you’d expect from a Rick Riordan novel. However, for every thing I liked, there was almost always something else I didn’t like. It is ironic that Rick claims he spent years working on Daughter of the Deep. It overall feels like it was yanked out of the oven before it had a chance to bake properly. Then again, he also claims to have gotten the idea for Magnus Chase before he wrote Percy Jackson, and look how that turned out.
The audiobook is narrated by Soneela Nankani. She’s the narrator for the Aru Shah audiobooks. Personally, I wasn’t too thrilled when I saw that Soneela would be narrating. However, she gave a fairly decent performance. She voiced Ester in a rather stereotypical way, like she was imitating Sean from The Good Doctor, but that was the only true sour note. Speaking of music, the audiobook is filled with music. There’s lots of musical cues throughout the audiobook. Scenes of wonder and whimsy have inspirational music, action scenes have exciting music. There’s a scene where Ana plays a pipe organ aboard the Nautilus, and we actually get to hear it. I thought that was a really nice touch.
Now, let’s analyze the cover. This is a nice looking cover. The undersea landscape is bright and vibrant. We see Ana and Gemini in their divining suits. Their faces are clear and unobscured. The Rick Riordan Presents books goes with this approach as well. Something about it being important for minority kids to see themselves clearly represented on book covers. We also see the Nautilus in the background, along with a giant octopus.
So, Daughter of the Deep has a lot of potential, and I certainly wouldn’t mind a sequel. However, there’s a lot of room for improvement. It needed to stand on its own merits, not just be the dry run for the movie script. Still, it's lightyears better than our next port of call. Next time, we’re tackling The Sun and The Star. The claws are coming out, and I’m prepared to fully eviscerate Mark Oshiro’s glorified self-insert fanfic.
