Thank you for the tag, @youandthemountains!
Figuring out who to tag is really stressful for me, so if you read this, please consider yourself tagged!! 😁
It's the year 2021 and you're obsessed with The Karate Kid. How are you feeling?
I love it! It’s overall been very positive for me and I’m really happy to have something fun to focus on given that this past year has been really hard. Also, there’s no shame in liking older media! Good content is good content no matter when it came out!
Did you grow up with TKK or are you new to the series?
I first watched TKK when I was 10 or 11 (around 10 years ago) and had a whole phase back then. The obsession slowed down after about a year and came back once CK came out (especially since season 3).
We gotta do the basics. Favorite character:
I’m indecisive :/
I love Mr. Miyagi, Daniel, Johnny, and Kumiko, so I’m just not going to pick lol
Fanfic ship: Lawrusso
Canon ship: Damiko
Kumiko! I love her so much! She’s so smart, ambitious, and independent. Also she connects with Daniel on such a deep, emotional level, and they’re now connected for life through Mr. Miyagi and Auntie Yukie and it melts my heart. Also, she’s unbelievably beautiful and I am incredibly gay.
Underrated ship (don’t say therapy, lol):
I’m obviously going with Damiko. I just think they connect on such a deep level and clearly still love and care for each other after 30+ years. They weren’t able to keep in touch but the connection was still there and I thought it was so beautiful 😫
Also Mr. Miyagi/Auntie Yukie because they were so sweet and wholesome. I also think the way Daniel and Kumiko’s love story ended up was meant to mirror Mr. Miyagi and Auntie Yukie’s in a way, and it’s so poetic that I want to cry.
Wax On, Wax Off or Sweep the Leg?
Wax On, Wax Off, because I find it to be the more memorable line. I’ve also never swept any legs but have side blocked many times lol
Which of Daniel’s dumb little outfits is your favorite?
Ugh we stan his iconic queer outfits. The best one was definitely the unbuttoned brownish/burgundy shirt with the black tank top and the hachimaki. I would definitely wear that. CK needs to bring back these biconic outfits.
Character from the films you most want to return, who’s not Terry Silver:
I definitely want Kumiko and Chozen to come back again, but out of the characters who still haven’t made an appearance, I’ll go with Jessica. I thought her and Daniel just being friends without there being much of a romantic angle was really refreshing. Also, her coming back might prompt the return of Mac&Cheese!Daniel, and EYYY you KNOW what I LIKE!
Scene that lives in your head rent-free:
From TKK, the scenes that always get to me are Mr. Miyagi’s drunk scene and Mr. Miyagi giving Daniel the car. Getting choked up right now just thinking about those 😥
From CK, I definitely rewatch the scene when Daniel and Kumiko first see each other wayyyyy too much. I also love Johnny attempting to figure out the Internet and his dream sequence about Carmen. And the garage fight scene. And Daniel visiting Mr. Miyagi’s grave and then doing kata again. Honestly, there are way too many so I’ll just stop now.
Will Anthony LaRusso ever be relevant?
You live in The Valley and are forced into the karate gang war. Which dojo do you join?
Definitely Miyagi-Do. I believe strongly in karate being for defense only since that’s the philosophy I was taught (we had to repeat it at the end of each class).
What’s your training montage song?
“Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees. I have no reason for this. I just think it would look and sound cool.
It’s the crossover event of the century! Which TV show are you combining with Cobra Kai for an hour-long Saturday night special?
Maybe Jane the Virgin so we can just devolve into absolute chaos.
