Few weekends ago, I watched few episode and a full movie from my childhood show, The Powerpuff Girls with my little cousin.
I discovered that Buttercup can cry.
May be I saw her did, but I don't remember.
Despite being a childhood Powerpuff Girls fan, I am not as entertained as much as I hoped. My memories is blurry as I only remember my good impression and I feel disappointed. The episodes we watched made no sense at all. What a downside of growing up. But, I realized few thing I looked over.
Blossom has always be my favourite, her pink design strikes my kindergarten eyes, the long hair, the big red bow. Not to mention I later attached to her attitude. Bubbles wins my heart through her connection with critters and how she can be surprisingly strong if need to.
Buttercup, well, just being there and be tough? Why don't I have any memories for her?
Then, my little cousin played the Movie DVD. Despite my disappointment from the episodes, the movie is surprisingly charming.
When Professor Utonium named her 'Buttercup' because 'it also begins with B.' I felt bad for her.
When Professor Utonium failed to pick the girls up after school and the sky subsequently pour down cruel rains. The moment she started crying. I felt... unnerved? As I said I am clueless that she can cry.
But the second time she cried was more memorable for me.
Through out my childhood, I have never like Buttercup as much as her sisters. Then, I realized; Buttercup possibly struggles to set herself apart, since her name doesn't suggest how she is different, but rather how she is same. She resolves to creating her hardcore image.
I remember when my younger sibling joined over family. When I don't think I will be as great as my big brothers, but still want to be someone the younger can look up and give me respect.
If I am correct, I resolve myself to draw, to make my smarty image, just because it is different from my big brothers.
The most shocking event from the movie is when the police throw Professor in jail.
But the second most out-standing event is, here, Buttercup crying.
