Happy Stitch Day 2017 everybody!

To Chris: You're very welcome (again)! I posted your last review on the tumblr. I loved it! It may be that they didn't give Leroy much development so they could instead focus on Reuben and the emotion of Lilo and Stitch being separated which may have been the better creative choice in the end. I would have liked for Leroy to have had at least one quirk that was unique to him though.

Jowad, it's not something I address in my review, but I do think Angel could have had a larger role. Since she and Stitch had just got together, you'd think she would have been upset about him having to leave, so I think maybe they could have at least one scene where they said goodbye.

Though I've forgotten almost all of my early elementary school years, my parents tell me that my teachers thought there was something wrong with me because I preferred to read at recess than play sports.

To JC:

That's actually a pretty clever name; the words "stitch" and "scratch" both refer to battle scars. Not only that, but a stitch is a scar that's been treated, while a scratch is an untreated one. That's a neat way of symbolizing the contrast between Stitch and his evil doppelganger.

Hi Everyone,

So sorry it took me forever to reply. School and my work are overloading me. No new news on “Stitch and Ai” at the moment.

To Jowad: I put the review here http://saveliloandstitch.tumblr.com/post/160929995584/review-of-lilo-stitch-2-stitch-has-a-glitch I have the drawing you want of Lilo,Stitch,Reuben and Angel but have no access to a scanner so I would need to remake the drawing in DA muro and upload it just before the L&S anniversary. Are you okay with that? I respect the reviewer’s opinion and agree with some of the criticisms too but disagree with him on the glitch plot being too much like a TV series plot.

To Elastico’s Foot: I read your chapter and was quite impressed. I was not expecting what happened to Hamsterviel and especially what happened to Gantu. Very well done. I agree with you on your comment about teachers. I have had some fabulous teachers but I have also had awful ones who stereotyped like crazy.

Starryblast9: School is sucking up my time too so I totally get it. I may not reply again until mid June because of it. Glad you got my message. I think Nani telling Lilo would be the best in that situation. You make a good point about Lilo and Stitch perhaps being too young.

To StarryBlast9:

Well, of course. It's really important for young girls to have characters and role models that encourage them to step outside of expected stereotypes. Actually, it's important that children not be influenced by stereotypes at all, and be allowed to embrace their own interests without being guided by corporations and teachers.

Nani sometimes gets annoyed with him, but there's not often any lasting consequences. (One thing that I actually quite like about Stitch & Ai is that they allow the characters to lose patience with Jumba when he goes too far. Once episode even ends with Stitch kicking Jumba very hard in the shin.)
I probably sound like I don't like Jumba, but the truth is that I do. I think he's a very interesting and amusing character (when done right, of course.) My problem is only with how the other characters respond to him, especially considering that there's a number of episodes where Lilo and Stitch get annoyed with each other for things much more minor than even Jumba's least damaging actions.

I can see your point. Perhaps I should rephrase. Angel does have the potential to be a very progressive female hero. Her anime counterpart is just such a contemptible 1950s misogynistic embarrassment that the simple trait of being able to fight and break oneself out of a cell can make a character seem on par with the likes of Lara Croft, Katniss Everdeen, Wonder Woman, Carol Danvers, Mulan, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Though original series Angel is the better character (mostly because of just how insufferable her anime counterpart is.), she still suffers from having only two episodes' worth of development, plus one scene in a movie. If she were allowed to become a series regular, helping Stitch and Lilo reform Experiments, then she could've become a really great and progressive female character. (One interesting story idea that comes to mind is Angel using her powers to reform Experiments, and Lilo and Stitch subsequently debating the morality of such a method.)

I think people might have just been so insulted by anime Angel that they'll take anything even slightly better. I'll confess, anything is an improvement over anime Angel.

School has FINALLY let up enough to where I can come back, sorry for the very long absence.

To Stitchthebest36:

I know Lilo's a kid, but that can only excuse so much. She's going to have to take some responsibility at some point, and she should be at least realizing what she did wrong (or have someone tell her-Nani for example) or the impact she could have by going against those principles. If she WAS going to contradict herself, maybe the writers could've had her do so in a less drastic situation-say, a fight with Stitch or something to that effect. But really, why the heck did the Grand Councilwoman give a couple of children (Stitch is a VERY young experiment) the task of reforming over 600 bioweapons with a variety of different personalities and situations. As what happened with the captured experiments, Lilo and Stitch weren't mature enough to handle certain, more complicated situations (such as those of Angel, Reuben, Heat, Hammerface, Thresher, and Plasmoid).

I think your theory's very possible; plus no one really actually CHECKED to see if Stitch was alive (the only indication of his death is the depleted charge dropping to nothing). I dunno when it comes to the glitch itself though...his eyes were glowing (as in giving off an actual glow), he was jerking around, and he wasn't responding to her. Something should've clicked with Lilo that Stitch had something wrong with him, especially during his outburst at the hula school.

(Also I responded to your dA comment explaining what happened with that one guy)

To Elastico's Foot:

Same. Instead of getting frustrated over not getting the attention of a boy (which I actually found really gross and slightly offensive because I had a lot of male friends as opposed to female friends growing up), Lilo should've instead gotten to said point over something like her passions. Like maybe frustration over people not understanding WHY she likes certain things-such as bugs or the supernatural for example. Such a scenario would've been much more in character and relatable, especially to girls who shared said interests.

Well, we had the 627 episode...and that was about it. Jumba obviously hides a lot from the other members of his family, so its weird that no one really questions him or what he does. That's an interesting route to take, but I've seen your characterization of Jumba, so I suppose it's a rather appropriate ending.

Also, can I actually ask something? Because I'm wondering how exactly you view Angel's series portrayal as progressive. Maybe we don't see eye to eye on this but I personally view a progressive female character as doing more than just fighting. For me, it was also having a strong character, being proactive, etc. I actually viewed Angel's series portrayal as REgressive when I was a kid due to her (In my opinion) lack of overall character, flaws, and design. I get they couldn't fit in a very defined character given how she was captured, but still. In contrast, Bonnie and Yin were more progressive in my opinion; they had noticeable flaws (Yin had her temper, Bonnie was arrogant and manipulative), they didn't have the whole conventional "hourglass/pretty" design, and they also did things for themselves as opposed to just for Clyde or Yang (Angel by contrast, does a LOT of things and makes a lot of choices based more on Stitch's love for her instead of herself. Case in point, she should've broken out in "Snafu" for herself, not because Stitch told her he loved her). Maybe I'm missing something here, but looking through your thoughts on this, it seems to me that you're focusing more on Angel taking action as opposed to her strength of character. So I'm just kinda...wondering. :/ (I can see why her anime portrayal is such though. XP) (ALSO-in addition, I've seen several make the same statement, often degrading anime Angel's portrayal and saying her series portrayal was progressive...when in my opinion might not necessarily be the case, as just because something's a certain way doesn't automatically mean the opposite for something else.)

To Jowad:

I always try to look at things from the perspective of a casual viewer as opposed to a fan. (Often because I find the fan view to be very biased. For example-you probably wouldn't be as critical of a character such as Stitch if you were a fan. You CAN be, but you'll be biased because of your love for his character. I go through the same with my own favorite experiments and try to avoid it. (Hard for me to grasp that some people saw Heat as hot-headed. lol)) I think he brought up a LOT of good points about the movie such as the ultimately useless Pleakley and David subplot, the humor, and some of the inconsistencies. Overall he gave it a good review in my opinion and he was fair to it.

To Elastico’s Foot and Starryblast9: I totally get what you are saying about Lilo since I do think her abandoning the experiments was dumb and overdone and Lilo could have been written as more patient, but remember that Lilo is between the ages of 6 and 9 so she is even more likely to go against certain values compared to adults(adults contradict themselves all the time) as she is still just learning some of those values herself. Having her never contradict herself would be boring. Remember Lilo is unique but that uniqueness does not make her perfect.
And yeah Stitch coming back to life purely through love was a bit of a stretch. I had a theory when I was younger that when Lilo turned on the fusion chamber Stitch got a small amount of the charge, enough to survive, but because his energy was so low he passed out for a little while(kinda like when a diabetic passes out from low blood sugar) and it took awhile for the charge to take effect so it just looked Stitch was dead and like Lilo brought up the charge by love when it was actually her quick actions that saved Stitch(which is another form of love maybe). I take evidence for this theory in the “Stitch’s birth” scene because Stitch was obviously functional even before he got the charge. As for Stitch’s glitch I noticed something, the majority of the time Stitch is glitching, Stitch has his back turned to Lilo, so she may not have seen his eyes turn green until before the hula competition scene. When the people I know who had those “episodes” from the stroke complications,had them, I had to be facing them and be able to see their eyes fully in order to see the full extent of their medical distress, that being said, even from a distance I could see something was wrong and since Lilo knows Stitch so well I would think Lilo would have picked up on the distress sooner.

To Elastico’s Foot: I do think it would be interesting for the experiments to show anger at Jumba but no,no Jumba does not deserve to die, a near death experience to teach him a lesson could be much, much better!

To Jowad: I know he doesn’t hate all the sequels but still I do not have my hopes up.

To Stitchthebest36:

Eyes are such a fascinating part of the body and make for great imagery. (I'll confess to using a lot of eye symbolism in my own writing.)
Oh, yes, the scene itself in terms of dialogue and pacing and everything is very excellently done. It's simply the deus ex machina of Stitch miraculously returning to life that's a little problematic.

To StarryBlast9:

That does seem to be the recurring problem with her more out-of-character episodes. I know kids sometimes get frustrated even with their best friends, but Lilo is very different from most kids; that's what made her so interesting in the original film. The best episodes of the series are the ones that fully embrace Lilo's uniqueness without having her slip too far into the petty flaws of more ordinary people.

Yeah, it's things like this that make me wonder, for all the episodes where Lilo and Stitch get cross at each other, why there isn't one where everybody gets cross at Jumba? (In fact, the Experiments actually *spoiler* kill Jumba in my story.)

So... I think I figured out exactly what went wrong with Lilo's character in the series; she lost her patience. Because in the first movie, she was very much this towards Stitch, but in the series, she doesn't seem to want to give certain experiments a chance if they somehow annoy her. Not to mention her simply leaving experiments who sided with Gantu (and thus would need more time to be reformed). Just something I realized when it came to Lilo being written badly. :/

To Stitchthebest36:

You're very welcome! :)

To Jowad:

I think the reason Animat's not too fond of Stitch Has A Glitch is because they pull the whole "love is stronger than death" thing on us (which is a bit of a cliche) and there's some pretty glaring inconsistencies like Lilo not noticing Stitch's blatant seizures and glowing green eyes while he was having them, along with Jumba not telling anyone besides Pleakley about what was going on. They're pretty big issues with the sequel, but I personally consider it solid for a Disney sequel (especially in terms of Stitch's character).

To Elastico's Foot:

To say nothing of Jumba's treatment of experiments like Ace who didn't act as how they were supposed to (i. e good/nice). And then there's the fact that he didn't even know what he was doing when he was reprogramming Felix. THEN there's also how some of the experiments act spoiled beyond belief while others almost seem desperate for any sort of attention.

Here's a youtube clip from "Stitch and Ai" on youtube in Chinese.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZ5LPPcC5-o

To Elastico’s Foot: LOL I agree about Jumba. I have seen the metaphor for Stitch's glitch and neurologic conditions for years. The most obvious metaphor being epilepsy. I had people with Alzheimer's in my family so I do see a parallel there as well. However having known people with Alzheimer's personally I do not feel who a person is, is so strictly tied to memory like society makes it out to be. My family members still had their soul and/or spirit and still had their basic personality traits from before the Alzheimer's like they were stubborn and still liked or disliked things even if they did not remember why. As a person with Cerebral Palsy which is a form of brain damage I always really related to Stitch's glitch because I have muscle movements caused by involuntary reflexes that sometimes cause me to accidentally swat at people like Stitch did to Lilo when he scratched her face toward the end of the movie. As you may remember I am also making a film about someone with a stroke that I am still casting for here
http://cripvideoproductions.tumblr.com/post/157585455766/a-stroke-of-endurance-casting-call
and while I was talking to stroke survivors to research this film I witnessed them have "episodes" which were not seizures but would make their eyes look VERY weird(nystagmus on over drive, I think called saccades,SCARIEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN!!) and would make them behave in ways they seemingly could not fully control because their brain circuits had gone a bit haywire because of the brain damage itself and the healing process of the brain re wiring itself. I think the reason we see Stitch's eyes turn green in the movie is because one of the ways you check for nervous system damage or problems is to check the eyes. So Stitch's glowing green eyes maybe was a simple metaphor that kids could still understand that still connects back to real neuroscience. Regardless I think the "Stitch's death" scene was one of the most beautifully written scenes ever.

To Jowad: That reviewer seems to hate Disney sequels in general so I am not getting my hopes up, but I am happy to post the video to tumblr.

Actually, not too long ago, I was discussing "Stitch Has a Glitch" with a friend, and he made a very fascinating observation; Stitch's affliction can be perceived as a metaphor for Alzheimer's. Throughout the film, he reverts more and more to his original, malevolent self, as each aspect of his mind and soul is chipped away, not unlike how Alzheimer's makes one forget more and more about their life as it simultaneously kills them; not just the end of a life, but the total erasing of it.

To Stitchthebest36:

I still think it would be an interesting direction for the series if Stitch, Lilo, or Nani at one point said, "Hey, Jumba, you know I'm grateful for you creating me/my best friend, but sometimes you're just excruciatingly unhelpful."

To Jowad:

I can understand his perspective. I mean, I do commend "Stitch Has a Glitch" for being one of the few straight-to-DVD sequels to not only have animation on par with the original, but also a story that's worthy of the original. Perhaps, though, the focus of his criticism will be on how Stitch is miraculously resurrected at the end simply by the power of his ohana's love for him. Even I must admit that that's a big cheat, especially considering how well-written the rest of the film is.

But, Stitchthebest36, when his review of Lilo & Stitch 2 is released, would you put it on the tumblr page.

More info on Stitch and Ai from Wikipedia:

“In co-ordinance with this, there are occasional cameos from previous characters of the Lilo & Stitch franchise, including Captain Gantu, the Grand Councilwoman, Cobra Bubbles, and the Ice Cream Man.”

Also, Here’s a new DA group dedicated to Lilo and Victoria http://lilo-and-victoria.deviantart.com created by my friend Daniel Newton, please join the group if you are on DA?

To Jowad: It is still unknown if the experiments will appear in “Stitch and AI” as we don’t know its exact spot in the canon. According to TV Tropes: “Interquel: Gantu's presence in the United Galactic Federation—combined with Stitch's flashbacks of events that happened in the original film—establishes this series as taking place between the events of Leroy & Stitch (when Gantu was rehired after having been fired at the end of the original film) and the Stitch! anime (where he was dishonorably discharged prior to the events of that series).”

To Starryblast9: Thank you so so so much for re blogging my film blog post and following my film blog! Mahalo!!!

JC: I added the quote from Tony Craig to the Save L&S tumblr. Mahalo for the info!

To Elastico’s Foot: I completely agree that friendship stories can be vastly interesting with the right elements added, and I think my coworker would agree as well. So sorry for my delayed reply. I had a very busy week. In regards to Lilo, I was more specifically referring to how they forced the boyfriend plot into “Stitch!” not so much the creation of Ai as a character with that comment. To me Jumba is mostly reformed but can’t deny his nature. I think Jumba truly loves Lilo,Nani and the others.

I think a good moment for Stitchzilla (his super-form) could be the final fight with the buccaneers espeicaly if they use some big robot or monster... a sorta big boss fight.... a Clash of the Titans.

To JC:

Jumba's actually a really messed up person, if you think about it. Even after he's supposedly reformed, he just has these really disturbing ways of applying his scientific prowess to problem solving. Let's not forget, for instance, that he only created 627 to be a living, breathing "I told you so" to Stitch. And even after he sees how that spins out of proportion, he still goes and creates another Experiment afterwards. Honestly, though, that's probably the whole joke of his character; he's the most knowledgeable part of the cast, yet is also the most unreliable and untrustworthy. It's not too far off from Frodo and Sam's reliance on Gollum in "The Lord of the Rings."

It wouldn't surprise me. Stitch only watched a short part of a simulation, so by all means, there's probably lots more content on there that only Jumba knows about.

To Elastico's Foot:

That's actually a pretty good point haha. I'm a bit surprised at Jumba for STILL keeping secrets from his ohana, even post-Leroy & Stitch. Ah well. He probably forgot about it. :P
And we specifically saw "The Origin of Stitch" short film in flashback for this series, so there's no disputing that the simulations shown on Jumba's computer were only for Stitch's "primary" form (the red space suit and alien appendages.) Maybe Jumba has a super-secret file for Stitch's true form...?

To JC:

That explanation actually seems reasonable, as well as in character for Jumba. A Godzilla-sized monster able to become smaller for easy transportation. Probably also good strategically; much easier to sneak into critical enemy compounds when you're not a giant.

The only thing I'm left wondering is how long until Stitch and co's patience with Jumba wears thin; a lot of bad things that happen in the series are kind of his fault.

I'll give you all more info as I come by it. He's been gracious enough to let me converse with him a bit, with benefit for you guys, as he also had a couple messages he seemed to want me relaying to you (the Stitch fandom).

The first thing he directly addressed when asked... "Was Stitch's red-eyed, eight-limbed, plasma-shooting, giant monster form his TRUE form for destruction?"

His answer?

"Jumba hid the code that turns Stitch into that monster deep within Stitch. It's what he was supposed to turn into when he found a large city to destroy, but his love from Lilo and now from Ai suppressed it so deeply, it was unknown if it could be reactivated beyond the point of no return. Jumba had kept this secret from everyone, even Stitch. There were never any large towns on Kauai, nor up in the Huangshan Mountains, so it was never activated until he was guided to a city and coerced into being subconsciously turned into this creature in our series. Now, I don't know if he was near any large cities in the Japanese series or not. I wasn't involved with them, never have seen them[...]"

Hey guys! I Facebook-messaged Tony Craig, and he gave me LOTS of good insight + new information about "Stitch & Ai," plus an update on the "Stitch!" anime's place in the franchise.
