everything about the manga is so wonderful

So I still haven’t been able to bring myself to see the ninth episode yet…. All of 2014 I seriously was torn up about Marco, and reading fan-stories on archive like Wisteria, Where the Wildflowers Are, Like a Drum, etc gave me even more massive feels! Then I read chapter 78 last year, and we finally find out how Marco died and I’m like….. Fuck I don’t want to relive this again… Truly! But hearing that a possible manga/anime spin off of their high school years COULD come to fruition…. Makes me so happy!!! So, so, so, happy….. This is everything to me! And I want to see even more JeanMarco moments in this spin off too! Hmmmmmm I wonder if there will be a second season to the junior high a.u.? Alright peeps…. Maybe I can finally convince myself and watch episode 9 this weekend! Probably before I watch episode 10. Is just…. Hard ya know? Marco was extremely important to many in our fandom, and our love for him is what makes him so popular and powerful! I just wish at some point during the manga, that Jean does find out what happened to him, and avenge! Because it was Marco, and Marco ALONE! That convinced Jean to join the survey corps and be the leader he is today. Other than that, I’m sure his tolerance for Eren is still low; I’m sure he thinks Armin is still weird, but grew to like him; his crush for Mikasa evidentially died; Connie and Sasha? Well…… In my opinion, they’re the best trio ever!!

coloured one of my favourite panels and best title-drop ever - shingeki no kyojin.

everything about this name-drop is so well done. the overlay of kruger’s exposition of the freedom-seeking nature of the attack titan and the wings of freedom of the survey corp highlights the parallel between the advancing nature of both the attack titan and the SC.

shadis’ cloak is so well-illustrated and the sun glint streaming from across his shoulder creates this great sense of wonder and hope, as seen by that look of awe (and relief?) in grisha’s eyes.

and of course, the revelation that the title of the series was referring to eren (or at least the attack titan) all along…

Hello lovely admin!!! I already love your blog and I can't wait to see what else you put out!!! If it's not too much trouble, I'd like to request some HCs/reactions! I'd really like to know how the captains and Ichigo would react to their s/o being a waitress and coming home to tell them about all the terrible people they have to deal with. If that's too many characters then please pick your favorites to do instead! Thank you in advance!!! 💙💙💙💙

Hello, lovely anon! Aaah, you all and your compliments~ You’re making me blush! I’m was so excited to write this one!

Shunsui Kyoraku

–Shu would definitely be an avid listener. He likes to ask about how your day was when you get home anyway, so he’s already there waiting. Hearing how cruddy it was would give him this empathetic smile, and he would put his big hand on top of your head as he listened.
–He would tell you how proud he was of you for taking all the horrible patrons in stride. He’d say things like “That’s my girl,” and “You did well.” And he’d shamelessly let you pout, because it means he gets to hold you~

Soifon/Sui-Feng

–Since she believes that struggles build character, she wouldn’t be too concerned with your day. She’d listen, give you some advice, and expect you to move on with your life.
–If you were really upset about it, I honestly feel like she’d probably loan you one of her prized black cat plushies. They make her feel better, why not you?

Rojuro “Rose” Otoribashi

–Always one for theatrics, he’d likely give you a heartwarming speech about perseverance. One that makes you roll your eyes, but ultimately lifts your mood because it’s quite ridiculous.
–He wouldn’t understand why you’re chuckling, because he was being serious, but in the end you’re happy, so he doesn’t mind. He’ll sling an arm around your shoulders, and give you a kiss on the cheek.

Retsu Unohana

–While she would comfort you, she’d also bring up that everyone has their own burdens to bear, and that all you can do is continue to be yourself. Some people react to stressors poorly, but that shouldn’t put damper on your mood.
–Also, tea.

Shinji Hirako

–If anyone were to blow it out of proportion, at least on a small scale, I have a feeling it would be Shinji. He’d suggest (only half joking) that he hunt them down in that eerily calm way he handles things. 
–This causes you to giggle, and tell him that’s not necessary, so he’ll settle back down. “Guess you’ll have to settle for some cuddling, then.”

Byakuya Kuchiki

–He would tell you to ignore such worthless people, that their opinion and words are utterly meaningless, as they come from the dregs of society.
–He would offer to take you on a walk about the gardens, and to sit with some tea by the koi pond to relax while he held your hand.

Sajin Komamura

–He’s probably up there with Shunsui on how he’d comfort you. He’s proud that you dealt with them well.
–Do you know Goro? His dog? Yeah, play with the dog. Dog’s make everything better, he would say.

Lisa Yadomaru

–She’s pretty damn robotic about it. She’s listening, honestly, but that rarely changing face of hers sometimes makes you wonder. 
–If you were upset, she’d probably offer to read manga with you. If you’re angry…she’d probably do the same thing. For someone who’s so unaffected by people, she’s not really sure what you want her to do except listen.

Kensei Muguruma

–Kensei, in his efforts to cheer you up (or calm you down, again, depending on if you were angry or not), would come off more like a drill sergeant. We all know he isn’t uncaring, however his angry demeanor is nearly impossible to break through. BUT, he’s also a tsundere.
–Bearing that in mind, when he realizes that what you really want is for him to hear you out, and maybe hug and kiss on you a bit, but complies…with a hilarious red tint to his cheeks.

Toshiro Hitsugaya

–Toshiro would definitely tell you not to dwell on it, but he would listen. While he generally finds complaining irritating, his s/o is special. Seeing you unhappy brings him no pleasure.
–However, if you mention anything like maybe there was a gross guy hitting on you, the air will drop a few noticeable degrees…

Kenpachi Zaraki

–Let’s get one thing straight, does he or does he not tend to solve things with violence? There’s a slim to none chance that if you’re dating Kenpachi, you can’t/don’t fight. For this, we’ll assume you’re pissed off, so it’s time to spar, work off some steam.
–…But not with necessarily with him (neither of you would enjoy that fight). He’ll acquire some of his willing subordinates, you’ll kick some ass, and you’ll call it a day when you’re wrapped up in his aggressive embrace.

Mayuri Kurotsuchi

–I’m sorry, but Mayuri just does not care. He doesn’t give a single shit, and there’s nothing you could say that would convince him otherwise. Unless one of the people who made your day awful were of an interesting background, or had some kind of unknown, strange ability that he could study, what happened is your problem.

Jushiro Ukitake

–This little bean, let me tell you, rivals Shunsui with how great he is at consoling you, or calming you down. He will make you tea, and give you sweets, and just generally be there for you.
–He would also give some similar advice as Unohana, saying that everyone has their own battle to fight, and that it’s no reflection on you. “Cheer up, my dear.” Also, sweet forehead smooches~

Ichigo Kurosaki

–This boy would just pull you into his arms, regardless of your mood, and listen while you bitched. He’s quiet, but shows he’s listening by nodding his head, and he’d tell you not to worry about it.
–When you’ve calmed down: “You feel better? Yeah? Good, let’s get something to eat.” Food doesn’t solve everything, but it definitely helps when you’ve had a bad day.

anonymous asked:

Hi there. I have a question regarding a few posts you made recently in the Akatsuki no Yona tag. It seems to me like you have an issue with those who are focused on Hak and Yona's relationship progression. May I ask why? Honestly, there are more politics etc. going on in the story compared to anything with Hak and Yona, so why not let the HakYona fans be happy when they get their moments? This IS also a shoujo romance, you know. Seems selfish to be complaining about it.

I would like to make say something before anything : I do ship Hak and Yona, and i think their relationship is cute and healthy unlike many other in the shoujo genre i have seen. I will not blame anyone that ships it, an on itself the shippers arent the problem.

The problem lies when you fail to see the message or the source material. I scrolled down the tags and i have never seen discussion of the actual plot, and in worst cases the aspects that were supposed to inspire and show Yona has everything to be a good ruler, people discard it as a ‘romantic statement’ (such as the pin) I have seen people complaining over the plot actually MOVING, because it doesnt show any Hak and Yona cute moments. Which is sad, because i see their relationship as a side dish, a cute love story that goes a long with a girl fighting to keep her kingdom safe.

I never really watched it for the ‘romance’. In fact, i rarely read shoujo mangas because after a while they became a little boring to me (in the same way YA books did) but AnY was something diferent, and kept me interested with its unique and interesting plot. And it seems that no one gives a damn about it, and prefer to build it down to a romance.

Akatsuki No Yona is a special manga to me, since it portrays a woman who wants to be ruler, and her kindness and willing to help others isn’t a sign of weakness. Although she does have the dragons, she will rather fight for herself and is aware how weak she is at the moment.

This is the kind of manga that will inspire little girls to be kind, but also strong. The way it can show them that princesses arent just there to look pretty. Its the kind of manga that, if taken seriously, might even open the eyes of a few teenagers that there is in fact something out there that is happening, and you should offer a hand to help. It’s so many things, so many positive and wonderful thing, that it frustrates me that everything anyone ever wants to talk about is the romance. (Which btw although good i have seen better)

anonymous asked:

The most recent ep though, what do you think about it? And I'm up to date with the manga btw.

I loved it and I cried lol. Ymir’s scenes got me all emotional.

I really wasn’t expecting for them to show the whole thing, even after having seen the preview. I thought maybe they would add just a bit, enough to foreshadow and leave people wondering or something, so they could give the full version later on future seasons. But whoa, they gave us everything and more. And it was amazing!

I personally am happy with their choice. I thought I would have to wait years to see this in anime form, so it was a gift. And I believe it makes sense to put it there, it helps anime watchers understand Ymir much better. 

Everything (or almost everything, because episode 28 was just…) they have added or modified from the original during this season has made me think that they have put a lot of thought on how they’re doing things. Isayama’s involvement is clear, but I think it’s obvious that the whole anime team are doing their best too.

This has made me more hopeful about the possibility of future seasons. I believe that the fact that they’re putting this much effort and even rearranging stuff that appeared so recently in the manga means they have long term plans. Let’s hope nothing gets in the way.

The rest of the episode was nice. Eren vs Reiner was hilarious, especially because Ymir and Bertholdt were basically there paying zero attention to them and casually chatting, and you could see Eren’s legs kicking the air in the background haha.

I was happy to see Annie even if it was a flashback. Erwin was as handsome as always. The scene with Ymir taking Historia was very well done.

It was a good episode. But I missed Levi… badly.

But well, we knew this would happen. At least we got to see Eren being beautiful many times during the episode, and I am always grateful for that!

Reviews of all Dragon Maid content

Dragon Maid Anime (Original): Pure. Tasteful. A new and improved version of the manga that captures everything good about the source material while trimming the parts that weren’t so good. Lucoa seems a bit out of place, though. Readjusts the sequence of events to be better focused and generally improved on what the manga started. 10/10

Dragon Maid Manga: Less pure. 2x as gay but 10x as lewd. Still worth reading if you want to get a head start on any possible future seasons of the anime. Occasionally something really fucked up happens, making you wonder why everyone thinks this series was ever meant to be wholesome. 8/10

Dragon Maid: Kanna’s Everyday Life: No English translation yet. The new art style looks fun. Will most likely be even purer than the anime, Kanna is the best. 11/10

Dragon Maid Anime (Funimation Dub): Kobayashi has been edited to be straight and Tohru is some kind of stalker who invades her home. Everything is subtly off. Jamie Marchi haunts my every waking hour. Who will be turned straight next? Will the final translation even resemble the anime we grew to know and love? I’m scared. 0/10

Yona and Hak

So I just finished re-reading Akatsuki no Yona, and I needed to draw Hak and Yona (the artwork is SO pretty!) and also to rant about how wonderful this story is. 

First off, though, if you haven’t read the ongoing series, I do really recommend it. It has everything you can want in a story: Drama, comedy, action, tragically complicated characters who develop over time and a suspenseful plot. (Seriously, I have no idea how it is going to end. I don’t even know how I want it to end!) It’s also been made into a popular anime, but I’ve only read the manga and I don’t know how far the anime goes into the story.

One of my favorite things about this manga is the refreshingly healthy relationship between the main couple. So basically, (SPOILERS) Yona is a princess and she has two best childhood friends, Hak and Soo-Won. Hak is secretly in love with Yona while also being her personal guard. Yona is in love with Soo-Won, but Soo-Won goes and kills her father, the king, and takes the throne. Hak and Yona flee the castle and begin a life-changing journey to collect the reincarnations of the four legendary dragon warriors and work to save their country. You know, basic plot.

Yona is great because she almost immediately becomes aware of how sheltered she was. Seeing the death of her father by the hands of the person she loves made her feel powerless and her goal is to become stronger so that she’s able to take care of herself and protect the ones who are always protecting her. How does she become stronger? She learns to fight as best she can, but she also becomes stronger by working for those who need help. She struggles with and then accepts that her father’s policies left many communities in danger and she takes it upon herself to make things right as best she can. Her empathy gives her courage and confidence and she really does turn into a badass in her own way.

Hak meanwhile, is my hero. There is a type of man in some shojo manga who display their love by being over-protective, domineering and sometimes manipulative. Somehow this works in manga. I mean, if I were to see it in a real life relationship or in a movie or tv show, I would want to punch the guy in the face and rant about how unhealthy that relationship is. And some manga push my limits, but for the most part, it somehow works. Anyway, Hak is strong and confident and protective, but he’s so healthy about it and that somehow makes him so much sexier than the domineering guys. Like, he would kill anyone who tried to hurt Yona, but he doesn’t try to stop her from interacting with anyone. She talks to other men all the time, even sleeps in a camp full of other men, developing close relationships with them (in a non-reverse harem sort of way) and he doesn’t become a jealous asshole. He’s known she had been in love with Soo-Won for years and he still devoted his life to ensure their happiness. After they fled the castle that devotion to her never faltered and he truly doesn’t expect anything in return. They have a shared trauma of losing the king and along with their best most trusted friend, which somehow brought them closer together, yet also kept them at a safe distance. He never tries to push his love onto her and is always so respectful knowing that she has such complicated feelings for Soo-Won. He has them, too. What I really love is how Hak gets such a kick out of seeing Yona struggle and triumph. Instead of trying to keep her sheltered, he respects her enough to understand that she is trying to grow and even when she insists on being in dangerous situations, he doesn’t freak out. He knows how competent she is and he wants her to know too. He supports her and helps her as an equal and he loves seeing her in action.  

Yona has more recently become aware of her feelings for Hak and she’s so darn cute about it. Still, what is great about the romance is that it does kind of play second fiddle to the overall plot and it’s allowed to develop naturally among other characters’ interlacing storylines. I didn’t even go into the story of the four dragon warriors or the complexity of Soo-Won actually being a good king, but that might just have to be a different rant. :)  

anonymous asked:

What is Oikawa and Iwaizumi hit off because Iwaizumi was respectful and said that the milk bread offered to him was delicious- or was there an official statement of how they met-

Hello to you, sweet anon!

Sorry if you had to wait for this answer, but as Geo stated before our summer is incredibly busy this year!

Anyway, if you mean how Iwaizumi and Oikawa became friends canonly… We don’t really have any hint about it.
We know they’ve been childhood friends all along, but Furudate has yet to say how they became friends.
Maybe we’ll discover it in the next Seijoh OVA coming out this year?
Who knows?

By the way, when they first appeared Kageyama explained that Iwaizumi and Oikawa had played volleyball together since middle school (they went all to Kitagawa Daiichi together, so he has witnessed this by himself).


Then we have some official art that portrays Iwa and Oikawa playing together as children. 

We don’t have indication about ages and so, but I guess they are in elementary school there? Probably in the same school?
Again, we don’t know.

Then I found I this picture but I honestly can’t remember if this is official art or not?

Maybe it’s not, but… Everything that has been hinted in manga\anime indicates they probably live near each other.
(Again, take this as what it is: hypothesis)

So, we have very little to work on, but fandom is a wonderful place and the majority of it has unanimously accepted Oikawa and Iwaizumi have been childhood friends all along, because:

- their mothers or their families have been friends before they were born
- their moms used to take them to the same park\kindergarden
- both of them

Honestly, I like the headcanon in which they’ve been friends for all their life because their moms\families were friends. 

Their relationship is so strong, they’re so attuned to each and sometimes they seem to anticipate each other thoughts or actions: this is the kind of relationship that requires a lot of time to build, and those kind of manners… they’re more often than not found between brothers or people that have lived all their lives together.

I’ve this kind of relationship with a dear friend of mine, so I’m mostly talking out of experience here, but it’s really hard to find the level of thrust and harmony with friends you’ve just met.

Like every kind of relationship, it requires time: to build a strong one, you need a lot of time, so I imagine their friendship has developped for the entirety of their lives.

Being respectful, thrusting each other, accepting everything from each other and also being strong enough to reprimand the other when they’re doing something wrong for themselves… those are just a few of the most evident traits of Oikawa and Iwaizumi’s friendship, but I think they needed a lot of time to come to the point we see them in manga\anime.

That’s why I agree with them being friends for all their lives. And also, that’s the kind of relationship you can’t just throw away at some point of your life: it will always be there with you, one way or another.

I wish anyone could have this kind of relationship.

anonymous asked:

i've been watching anime-manga commentary lately, and one of them was about naruto as a whole series (the flaws and the good) and now i'm wondering, what was your initial thoughts about the canon naruto? like, what did you like about it and what were the flaws that you wanted to fix upon in dreaming of sunshine (unless it's gonna be a spoiler, then you don't have to tell everything haha) - and also, what has changed in your impression of naruto since you started making dos and now? thanks!!

 Oh gosh. So, this is a massive topic. And I don’t want to really get all ranty about it or anything but that’s probably going to happen. >.>

I started watching Naruto… years and years ago. I mean, DOS was started in 2011, so that might give you a hint, but I’m pretty sure it was before Shippuden. A quick google tells me the Shippuden anime started airing 2007 (japanese) or 2009 (english). The manga dates are a bit earlier, but I didn’t actually start reading that until I wanted to ‘catch up’ later on, and even then I gave up reading during the war arc and only really picked up the last few chapters when the series ended.

So almost immediately I think we can tell my attraction to the series is rooted in the early installment stuff and not the later DBZ powergaming. I liked the Wave Arc. I thought Haku and Zabuza were interesting antagonists, with provoking backstories that were great mirrors to the protagonists and provided an interesting mirror image. I liked Gaara, who (again) was an interesting mirror to Naruto. I liked the world that we started to see around all these characters - flawed and complicated, with a lot of players moving in the shadows. I liked that Naruto wanted to change it all.

I thought we would get more character arcs with the side characters. I thought we would get Sakura development. I thought things were building to a Sound-Konoha war and we’d get to see a lot of Tsunade-Orochimaru-Jiraiya stuff - interactions and backstory and development. And I’m a little disappointed that most of that never really happened.

(And then timeskip. Personally I just don’t like time skips. You lose connection to the characters. Either nothing happens (and therefore things are weirdly the same) or you miss out on great content. Still, that’s a personal opinion.)

Overall I think the series has serious problems with its female characters and giving them, yknow, actual character. I think the epilogue is so full of holes that it deserves to be struck off completely. I think the ‘man-behind-the-man-behind-the-man’ of the war arc was so extremely tiresome. (99% of Uchiha characters make me have a kneejerk ‘no’ reaction now and the only reason Sasuke escapes is because I write him in DOS, not because his canon self is any better.)  I think that including the Sage and Kaguya did the series no favours and things got ‘too big’ in a way that made it difficult to care about the characters involved - how many thousands of people died in that final battle? And yet the only meaningful ones were Neji and the Ino-Shika parents.

But there are people who have presented those opinions in better and more thoughtful ways than I can. These are all discussions that have been around.

And okay, all these rants make it sound like I don’t actually like the series. I do! I wouldn’t still be in this fandom if I didn’t. I’m perfectly capable of putting books down, turning off movies and walking away. I actually really like Naruto. I like core of the series and the themes and ideas it sets out in the first part. And there was a lot of cool fanfiction that kept me invested.

DoS was mostly (okay it was a little bit a ‘fix it’ fic) about ‘well why did these things happen’. Not about changing them, not about being some ‘rationalist’ take on it all. I can’t understand why people read DoS and complain about how silly things like sending a team of genin after Sasuke are. That’s canon. It happened.

But I mean, things have changed. Some of them I planned, some of them I didn’t but they seemed logical when it happened, and some of them are just because I got sick of people asking and kinda regret now. Thems the breaks. I think if I ever actually finish writing DoS I’ll do a massive rewrite and cull everything down like this is a sprawling first draft. But who knows. I may not ever actually finish writing.

Naki was the sunshine of goat, of aogiri, of every fucking thing in this manga. I’m not emotionally prepared to see her reaction…

i was wondering if… instead of dying, he was actually about to become kakuja? and he thought he was dying? but i don’t remember Naki having cannibalized before, so i don’t think so… i think he’s really dead ;-; the last panel of Jason and Naki smiling at each other, it was like he already entered heaven or something and he was there *sighs* i’m just so shocked because i wasn’t expecting Naki to die… of all people, i swear.

anonymous asked:

Hey Amanda!! I really love OHK and you've inspired me to make my own manga as well! However I'm a bit lost as to how to start >.< Do you think you could give me some pointers (e.g. what program to use, how to go about planning, layout of manga pages or whatever you think a beginner would need to know?). Thanks so much and keep up the wonderful work!!!!

omg I’m super flattered you would ask for my advice! I’m not a pro or anything but I’ll do my best to tell you what I know (super long message with example images up ahead)

1. Keep it simple. Simple plot, simple characters. Don’t add a bunch of characters or details all at once or it’ll be hard to follow the story.

2. Explain everything. Don’t assume the reader knows anything. I’m a lazy reader so I like to have all the important stuff explained to me like I’m hella dumb lol.

3. Don’t jam in too much text. Split up speech bubbles with longer text segments and write fairly simple sentences. Again, I’m a lazy reader so this is just my own preferences.

4. Let the speech bubbles guide the reader’s gaze from panel to panel as much as possible:

I’ve found that horizontal paneling speeds up the reading pace while vertical paneling kind of slows it down, so think about that when you panel your pages.

vertical panels:

horizontal panels

5. Make sure the setting is obvious (e.g. school building, house, amusement park, etc.). A good way to do this is by starting off with a fairly big panel of the setting before you draw the characters. You can make the transition to the next panel smoother by adding a speech bubble that continues from one panel to the other. For example:

6. Write down every idea you get; even if you can’t use them now they might be useful later. I usually write a script so I have an overview of what’s going to happen in the chapters. Don’t worry too much about the details since they’re probably going to change later on to fit with the flow of the comic.

Script:

Actual page:


7. I use Photoshop CS5 for everything, but you can use any program you’re comfortable with. I know a lot of people who do their lines in Paint Tool SAI and use PS to add the tones and text later.

8. Draw on a bigger canvas and resize it later so the lines will look crisper and cleaner. I draw on A4 and resize it to 700px width.

9. Don’t stress and remember you’re doing this because you want to get attention   share your art   who are we kidding we’re doing it for the attention lol

These are just the things I could think of off the top of my head, I hope it was helpful and feel free to ask if you have any other questions!

anonymous asked:

what's your favourite thing about shirabu? just wondering, since there's a lot of him on your blog ^_^

Oh I am SO GLAD YOU ASKED!

(I could rant for 3 hours probably, but you asked for The Favourite Thing so I gave that some thought..)

I think the reason why he stood out to me when I first read the manga: his design combined with his tough and salty attitude.

But what really really gets me is that he is sorta… scary.

He is one of those people who are driven by a spark, have a clear aim in their head, and do everything they can to achieve it. (Just look at those eyes they give me chills all over) He has this obsessive personality that speaks to me, without being corrupt or sly.

He has a pure, real fascination with Ushijima and Volleyball. He doesn’t pride himself as being the most important, he doesn’t strive for attention or praise (he’s seems confident and practical like that; knowing when his plays are good, knowing when he fucked up Big Time) - He plays to see that sort of power happening in front of him, because of him.

And he has a mental strength and discipline that my past self can relate to (that’s a story for Another Time) which leaves a very bittersweet feeling.

Another thing that just won’t let me go: his inner conflict and doubt which was never clearly answered.

“Faced with such amazing raw potential, wouldn’t the setter’s will be superfluous and wholly unnecessary?”

It is a way of showing that he gave up part of himself to get what he wanted. It is a conflict, it is hard, he seems like he is suffering and out of place or nothing special- amongst The Big Guys, the Miracle Boys- where his actual flashy skill is not required.

But he tries to keep up and pushes himself harder, and he is not less important than the others on the team. It is something he wanted, he decided that for himself and did it, and I think there are people who don’t think it is worth it or a good idea. But the reasons for why he chose this could be so multifarious! It makes me want to explore his personality, past and future. This right here is something that fascinates me!

tl;dr Shirabu is complex! And completely underrated~

L’s food in manga vs anime

I started listing this because I thought there was a significant increase in food in the anime version, but it turns out I was wrong. It’s only Episode 22 that excessively increases L’s food focus, all other additions are rather subtle.
I guess Episode 22′s director just knew what they wanted…

But I still have this list now so if you ever wondered about which episodes and chapters L eats what in / what food is anime-only, here you go?

I can note though that L’s food is often given more focus in the anime than in the manga, which plausibly has everything to do with the anime needing to introduce props and movements to otherwise static scenes.

(As a note, this disregards all drinks and drink-associated stuff like creamers or sugar cubes. L has a LOT of coffee though. Rest assured.)

Hi yes idk why I haven't catch you guys on here but im glad i do now but anyway thank you so much for translating gorgs manga!! I was wondering if you guys will have the time to translate another manga of Hashimoto Aoi?? It's 'Between the Sheets' i think OuO The group that supposed to work on it never updated or so i think coz I haven't got any news about it in like 4 yrs already. So yeah―

Heyyya~! ヾ(。・ω・)シ You’re welcome and thanks for reading our scanlations~~

WE…are actually looking for more manga to do, because everything we’re working on is still ongoing and we’ve caught up with mostly all of them.

(~*´・v・)~  We’ve talked about Between the Sheets before and we’re not going to do it because another group plans to. Here’s a link to their projects page. And on the spreadsheets, it says they’re translating Ch.3. Maybe they plan a full volume release. I’m not sure. But, we’re not going to touch it ^^;

(cont) if that post really is 100 percent legit,i don't agree with everything kishi said (i sure af disagree with the idea that hinata didn't do anything. i can't say sak did nothing,either),but if sak's rabid stans wanna keep playing this game... Anyhow, more highlights: 'so part way through the story he started to wonder whether he should make her (hina) the main heroine instead', 'Kishi says that if there is a manga about Bolt, he wants to include scenes focusing on Neji' like GET TO IT DUDE

I think he meant around the time part 1 ended. Outside of her fight with Neji and the Proud Failure Speech Hinata wasn’t really shown much.

anonymous asked:

What sort of info is in the snb sindria guidebook?? Im thinking of getting it but its really expensive for me so im wondering uf its worth buying!! Thank you!!

The SnB Guidebook starts with an introduction of characters Sinbad met along the way covering everything till the age of 16.

Then theres a manga part covering the OVA’s part from Sin conquering Baal’s dungeon and ends with Sham Lash being dispatched to follow Sin. 

Next theres a detailed character Introduction and how they met/story from Ja’far, Mystoras, Masrur, Sharrkan and Pisti.

And there are a lot of funny sites just about silly things. Like the do-it-yourself Crotch Leaf Instructions and Fashion Check Sides for Sinbad. Or a side where it shows Sins every possible facial expression for any situation xD

I will be scanning the fun sites one by one to show them and give a rough translation of them but i would highly recommend getting it yourself. If you love Sinbad no bouken and ofc Sinbad its a real treasure to have! (๑꒪▿꒪)*

And ya i know the money problem… it took me a long time to finally be able to buy the merchandise i recently purchased… (๑ १д१)

Hope this helps with your decision!

The Moonlight Witch’s Top 10 anime of 2016: Part One

2016 has come to an end and it’s again the time for me to list my top anime of the year. This was a good year for anime with plenty of excellent shows that have found their way onto my permanent favourites list and lots of other good shows besides.

Picking ten shows to put on the list was difficult, ranking them even more so. There are plenty of shows I enjoyed this year that did not make the cut but I’m largely satisfied with my final list. I’m still not completely happy with the final rankings so take them with a grain of salt.

If you haven’t tried all of the shows on this list give them a shot! Some of these shows were extremely popular, others were virtually unheard of outside of specific niches of anime fandom. I watch a wide variety of different anime so this is quite a variable list, and not every title here will appeal to everyone. But all of the shows here are excellent and worth a look-see

As with last year, I’ve defined this list as shows ending in 2016, so shows which began in 2016 but are still airing are not eligible, while shows that began earlier but ended this year are. The list is also divided into three parts because of its length.

10. ReLIFE

ReLIFE first caught my attention for an unusual reason: the bizarre airing schedule! Instead of being released in the typical week-by-week format ReLIFE was released all at once for anyone to view. I don’t know why the decision was made or what the shows final sale numbers were but I can’t help but feel the decision was a mistake. In the flurry of new releases few people will sit down to watch an entire show, and without discussion and attention reignited each week by new material ReLIFE was quickly left behind and forgotten.

And it’s a shame because while ReLIFE may not be the most attention-grabbing of shows it is nevertheless excellent. The show’s premise is kind of ridiculous - an adult becoming a teenager as part of a scientific study - but the premise isn’t really the point. The real point here is an endearing high school slice of life tale, told with a more mature and world-weary protagonist which switches easily between comedy and drama. Those are two contrasting elements that are very easy to mess up but ReLIFE handles the contrast with skill, allowing it’s interesting and well-developed cast to bounce off each other in ways that create tension or humour very naturally.

Some of the most interesting elements come from our protagonist. Arata Kaizaki is ten years older than the characters around him and at times it shows. Many shows feature “meddling” protagonists who attempt to steer the characters around them but Arata comes across as a very justified version, more emotionally developed than his classmates and aware that issues that seem all consuming to them may not be so important in the long run. The show also handles the struggles of an adult going back to high school in a surprisingly realistic fashion as among other things Arata forgets that carrying cigarettes around in his bag is no longer an unremarkable fact and discovers that his memory of high school mathematics is virtually non-existent!

I ended up enjoying ReLIFE a great deal - more than I expected going in. I was very impressed with its characters and storytelling, and would very happily anticipate a second season should one be announced.

9. Osomatsu san

Osomatsu-san was a slow burner for me - one reason why the completed shows rule in place. I enjoyed it from the start, but it was only in the second cour that I really started to appreciate the show and what it does - largely because that was where I started to understand the characters, their personalities and their interactions with each other.

Osomatsu’s characters are really it’s biggest strength. Each once of them has their own unique and well-developed personality, which bounces off the others in ways that can be entertaining, surprising or touching in equal measure. And every person who watches this will likely discover a character or characters they find particularly appealing or uncomfortably relatable. I myself was particularly drawn to lazy, cat loving Ichimatsu and the ridiculous, painful Karamatsu, but all of the brothers are entertaining and interesting in their own right.

Osomatsu’s other main draw is its humour. Humour is a hit and miss subject and what one person finds funny may leave another totally cold. Osomatsu’s style of humour is largely mean-spirited but with a certain amount of affection and love for its characters beneath it, and that may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But when Osomatsu is funny it’s really funny and more than once the show startled a laugh or a gasp out of me with a surprising moment. Osomatsu is patient with its humour and does not hold back - the show is completely unafraid to end a touching segment with a startling brick joke or to go entirely off the rails for the sake of humour (check out episode 18 for a spectacular example of the latter) and above all else the show is clever, setting up and foreshadowing jokes with careful attention to detail.

Osomatsu won’t be for everyone and it’s humour does miss the mark from time to time, but overall it’s a bitingly funny show with compelling, interesting characters and I strongly hope it gets a second season.

8. Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu

Rakugo is probably the show on this list whose existence is the most surprising. Adult period dramas don’t get made much, largely because they don’t tend to sell well when they do. I don’t know why Studio Deen took a chance on Rakugo but I’m immensely glad they did because they delivered us one of the best anime of the year.

Rakugo is an extremely well told and mature work. In many ways, it feels much more like a prestige film or Shakespearean play than an anime, largely because it is centred around much quieter and more intimate subjects than most anime do, with a focus on characters who are much older than typical anime protagonists. In many ways, Rakugo is staged almost like a rakugo performance itself with purposeful and dramatic storytelling paired with expert camera work and shot framing. The show clearly doesn’t have the highest budget or the most staff, but it almost doesn’t need it - the direction and art design are strong enough to make up for those weaknesses.

Rakugo’s story is equally compelling. The show starts off in the 1970s with our apparent protagonist Yotaro but then cuts back to the story of his mentor Kikuhiko for almost the entire run. Kikuhiko’s story is beautifully told with deep multifaceted characters who bounce off each other in unpredictable but believable ways. The messy, painful love triangle between Kikuhiko, Sukeroku and Miyokichi takes up a great deal of the run with a strong focus on how the three of them are hampered from living the lives they should be by the backwards, restrictive society they live in. The best tragedies are ones in which the characters lives are ruined through inevitability and Rakugo understands that implicitly.

Rakugo is an extremely good and extremely rare type of show. It has a strong story, excellent direction and wonderful (and deeply flawed) characters. The second season airs in just a few days so this is an excellent time to give it a chance.

7. My Hero Academia

My Hero Academia was a show I was strongly anticipating even before it aired. I’ve always loved both superheroes and shounen tales and everything I had heard about the manga that this anime is based on was good. Needless to say, I was not disappointed.

My Hero Academia is not a particularly original story. There is nothing new about superheroes or powered coming of age stories. But this show doesn’t need to be telling a new story to be telling an excellent one. In fact given how played out this genre is it’s remarkable how fresh and new this show feels. It helps that this show is incredibly fun. Western superhero stories have heavily leaned on the dark and depressing side so seeing a show that relies on the fun and exuberance that can be found in superhero tales is deeply refreshing. The show is also bolstered by the fantastic production values and a colourful aesthetic courtesy of Studio BONES that emphasises the fun this show has to offer.

The most appealing part of My Hero Academia, however, is its wide cast of appealing characters. Midoriya is a likeable and sympathetic hero with well-written strengths and the show easily draws us into rooting for him throughout his journey. He’s also surrounded by a large and interesting cast, all with their own unique personalities and goals, from the aggressive but insecure Bakugou to cheerful, friendly Uraraka. It’s easy to see each different character as the hero of their own story and to imagine them carrying a show all by themselves and there are about a dozen different characters in My Hero Academia who I would happily watch a spin-off of.

I enjoyed this show so much that I immediately picked up the manga afterwards and I’m strongly looking forward to the second season which is going to adapt one of my favourite arcs from the manga. If you haven’t seen this show I highly recommend that you check it out before the second season airs this spring.

carmellen replied to your post:bought the wadda manga omnibus since its finally…

mogeko died and was replaced by a lookalike: a thread

I KNOW the eyes are too far apart and he draws expression differently, the composure of the scene is different, and everything is rounder. i dont know what happened to mogeko its like he fuckin had a stroke and cant remember how to draw in his own style. i just checked the sunahama and that IS just how his art looks now… idk what to do about that. its really weird like hes regressing artistically… i hope hes ok LMFAO
