So how many people here read Tokyo Ghoul?

With the 5th anniversary I'd say it's well deserving of it's own thread.

Also how do you feel about the "RE" subtitle and One Eyed King revelation?

Too bad this place is fucking dead tough eh?

Anyway, I'm not really liking how much they're sticking to the Adventure script. I appreciate the nostalgia trip, but so far they're going through the motions in a series of references, from fighting Kuwagamon, to Ogremon and Leomon fighting, (and Leomon dying, but who didn't see that coming). And in the next one Patamon dies?.

And I don't know, but the obligatory inner struggles that the kids overcome don't really feel that special. I mean this is the whole team reaching Mega. It's implied this should be something life-changing, but it doesn't feel any more special or different from the problems they faced as kids. I really hope the rest of the movies try to break away from the formula of "kid faces problem, overcomes it, Digimon evolves". It was fine when the audience were young, but an adult audience is gonna get sick of real fast unless they pull some twists.

“This is too funny, haha! Every single one of them is as black as aboriginal tribes.” Lu Piao laughed, leaping and stomping on the butt of the guards.

I know I shouldn't be shocked but considering it was the only thing in a hundred and fifty-three chapters like this, it really caught me off guard.

I agree--and the story itself often makes jokes about her being chubby or worried about her weight. That would make a lot more sense if she were actually kind of curvy. And she's still adorable, and probably even more of an "every girl" this way.

May as well ask why does Ami have blue hair and Michiru have green.

It's because anime likes to use creative color palettes than just giving everybody the same hair color and eye color. it's especially important when all the characters wear uniforms so that you can tell characters apart from far away easily. This is easier with live action, but with cartoons where the designs are simplified and stylized, palette differences can be important for that sort of thing.

For that matter, it's just more fun for the artists to use lots of different colors when drawing. And in the original manga of course, Usagi's hair was often pink when it was colored, rather than blonde--lighter pink than Chibi-Usa's, but definitely pink. It's just artistic expressiveness.

This was something we had on the old (and now defunct) Kemono.org too - let's have an "Anthros in Anime" thread!

I'll start with my big favourite, the sexy and busty snake Orochi-Onna (that name literally means "snake woman"). She is a servant - and extenstion of Orochi (DUH!) from Gegege no Kitaro, specifically from the OVA "Nippon Bakuretsu".

I’ve heard of Parasyte, but only in that I knew the name and the fact that it was a horror series. And yes, I generally don’t watch a lot of anime these days and what little I do watch is typically on Toonami, so I guess that makes me a time traveller (or an idiot, take your pick).

We all know manga can conjure up emotions but what were the times when you found yourself SEETHING with rage reading manga?

ITT Pages that made you angry.

This page is from "Evil Heart" in which an extremely abusive person turns up to terrorize two small children living on their own, I was so angry that he would even dare turn up.
