Episode 1's out. Seems pretty good, but the official subs are awful.

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.

Eh, I already watched the first five and seen parts of the other ones, and in conclusion, is not good, but harmless. In fact, there are many clever things on this localization (mostly with the villains/generals dialogs, the Kyoto trip was changed into a trip to a Asian-Pacific Expo, Reika/"Cloe" seems to be a japanophiliac, "japanese pizza", etc.). On the bad side, a lot of goofy and comedic sounds are added on plenty of fights (I haven't verified if the fights against the generals are downplayed as well), the latinamerican dub took some weird decisions on it's localization (seriously, "Ejercito Brilloso"?),soem of the dialogs of the Smkile girls are pretty weak("glittertastic"), this bad CG songs that they put at the end that make SMC CG look like Pixar (pic related), and some other few things.
But overall, at least is kind of enjoyable and it could've been worse.

I really like how plenty of latinamerican Precure fans (I'm surprised they exist, considering how a lot of of latinamerican anime viewers avoid kids shows in general) hate the show and other reactions from people who either didn't knew a thing about Precure, and the return of the obsessive Sailor Moon fans that keep yelling "IT'S A SAILOR MOON RIP-OFF".
Also, jewels like this.

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.

So I guess the OVA is out now? Anyone seen it yet? Doesn't seem to have hit Crunchyroll or Hulu (both of which tried to same-day the series), so I guess I need to look for a torrent. I assume some sub group has done it already, at least.
