The great gatsby, at its core, is an american cultural phenomenon. It’s a critique on the american dream, something nobody outside of america can actually relate to. It’s dumb to compare it to stuff like batman and spiderman because they have universal appeal.I mean the great gatsby has had multiple Hollywood level movies. It's not out of the realm that it's known.
The show has referenced pop culture and literature in the past:
List of references to popular culture in Pokémon - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopediabulbapedia.bulbagarden.net
And it's not like The Great Gatsby is some obscure piece of media. It's a very notable book and like entry-level literature for high schoolers, if not middle schoolers. With multiple movie adaptations too.
I think the anime left it ambiguous for a reason so people for/against can read whatever they want into the scene, but it was intended to serve a purpose.
The Great Gatsby is a tragedy novel. And the very last thing you want to compare Amourshipping to.
That is twitter for you being contrarian for the sake of being contrarianI love how quite a lot of people are coping in those comments (even if in a respectful way), thinking that a bunch of ambiguous and/or headcanoned stuff apparently has more validity than actual on-screen canonized content.
Maybe during SM it was the worse (because no Serena) but this is pretty bad. Lately I’ve seen so many more Pokeshippers than Amourshippers.Anyways from someone who is relatively new to the fandom is this the worst time to be an amourshipper or the discourse has always been this way?
