Marina is so cruel.

A lot of the humor in the Splatoon series can come across as a sad attempt to sound young and hip by a bunch of shut-in adults. That has its own charm to it and is part of the series’ identity, but the joke in the above image was legitimately hilarious. It’s something that a young person would actually pull, complete with an equally suitable reaction. In fact, the writing in the new DLC for Splatoon 2 is shockingly believable and entertaining. It even (lightly) handles the subject of racism in a manner that is both funny and tactful. I just wish there was more of it.

That’s all! Just wanted to share the joke.

Oh, and can we all agree that Octoling girl’s smile is a joyous miracle to be protected at all costs?
