I was joking around with a friend earlier that the only reason they made the blood red was so they could do this scene and the resulting having Aoi walking around in the bare minimum of clothing after.

This was no accident.
のほも is such a good word?? the concept is kind of hard to fully get across in translation, but basically it means a feeling of pure, deep, platonic affection, and i think thats beautiful

Started reading Inuyashiki when news of an upcoming anime adaptation brought it to my attention.

It's by Hiroya Oku, the guy who made Gantz, and is very clearly a story written immediately after as you can see where he's learned to develop the more philosophical side of the story to something that (fingers crossed) may not end up being complete garbage by the end. He's also very clearly bitter about some of that fan reception.

Anyway it's about two people that basically get gantzed but not quite and use the resulting powers way differently. Even though it is pretty directly slapping you in the face with them, there are a lot of very well done parallels to illustrate that the characters may not necessarily be good and evil. It's also really fun in a dumb way a lot of the time.

Fun fact: I did not check the translations on the site I ripped these pages from and I legitimately can't decide if these are worse or better than the official English.

Well now I want to see how bad the official translation is.

Aw, shit. That's disappointing.

Whether Yaginuma perceives his comments as discriminatory or not, they have had a chilling effect on Jewish fans of his work, including Anime News Network senior reviewer Rebecca Silverman. Silverman was a fan of Recovery of an MMO Junkie, even placing it in her top five anime of 2017.

"I feel sick that I named it one of my best shows of the year, and I wish I could take it back," Silverman said. " I know that there are some people who would say that it would be overreacting, because it takes more people than a director to make a show successful, but I can't stomach praising the work of someone who would deny or praise what was done to my culture."


Hard agree.

Yeah, the article Lyrai links says there's some waffling about whether or not Yaginuma just doesn't understand English very well or the significance of what he's saying, but then they went and checked his Japanese tweets and statements and yes, he understands perfectly well.

I thought the studio had divested itself from the director at this point, but I haven't been paying that much attention to the story after the news originally broke. I don't know if that makes anything better or not, but hey at least the manga still exists.

The article is from february and it does have the links to the follow up stories about it, the gist being that they did divest from the dude.

Holy shit you guys, the last five or so chapters of Attack on Titan have basically been good enough to make up for all the boring bullshit in the middle.
