I've been finding Akame Ga Kill kinda meh. Parasyte seems pretty cool after watching the first episode. That's some Cronenberg, Stuart Gordon, John Carpenter shit right there.

Boycott? What did they do?

I read the manga , but I treat the anime as a different thing. Just like when I watch a Marvel film and have read the comic.

In all honesty, I'm not really feeling too crazy for either Parasyte or Akame Ga Kill, which is kind of weird considering that a lot of my favorite anime are usually spilling with blood and violence, at least the anime versions. At least in the latter's case, they aren't afraid of killing the main cast off, so there's some incentive to which member of Night Raid gets whacked next, along with the next bad guy as well. In both cases though, you're better off reading the manga.

One thing that does annoy me about AGK is that there is often such a sudden shift in tone every few moments, it's literately bone-jarring. I understand wanting to lighten up the mood to keep it from taking itself too seriously, but there are much better ways of putting in humor in a dark series like AGK. In fairness, after watching/reading Berserk and Hellsing Ultimate {both are over the top in carnage and grimdarkness, but Berserk plays it seriously while Hellsing relishes in cartoon-y absurdity of it all} it's kind of hard to take any anime that seems to follow in its footsteps seriously ever again, and that's not including the works of Go Nagai, but maybe that's just me speaking.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

i prefer the original manga of parasyte over the anime, it has that 80's monster movie vibe that reminds me of films like basket case and xtro.

Yeah, the anime was making me think of like the Thing or From Beyond or the Society or some other trippy '80s practical effects madness.

The Parasyte anime is bad. I have not heard one viewer say anything good about it.

They probably didn't like it for the same reason why they didn't like the Tokyo Ghoul anime. It's because the censorship ruins everything. Plus, the anime tends to change things from the manga. Lots of important details are left out in the anime.

Most people watch anime for cute girls. It can be hard to like a shown in which body parts mutate into aliens.

I highly doubt that's the reason why most people watch anime. I think they watch it for the story, action, and character development. Plus, there are some anime with stuff just as grotesque as Parasyte, but people still like them.

Have you never heard of cosplayers that dress up as the cute anime girls? Have you never seen people argue over who their anime wife would be? Many anime viewers do indeed just watch it for the cute girls.

I agree.

If you really think so, Then you pretty much can't tell the difference between a trap (A very feminine boy that dangerously looks like a girl) and a regular girl. Besides bro, I'm an artist. I know what makes a female look like one and what not.

you must really be a novice in art if you think the aforementioned beauties qualify as traps. and bruh, i'm an artist too, so claiming you're an artist doesn't really mean anything to me... if you think i'm trolling go check out my art, i just finished my latest work

The latest chapter of Skip Beat! brought a new light toward Kyoko's mom. If she was date raped, it would explain the reason why she treated Kyoko like crap.

I wish the anime have the second season, especially since they have more than enough material for the third.
