Anyone else think the guy with the fake hands on his face and neck is creepy as strawberry float?

The S2 finale whenhe grabs Midorya's throat and threatens to kill him was slightly uncomfortable viewing.

Yeah man, Shigaraki is a creepy guy.

S2 finale spoilers below - don't click, SoK!

The full reveal of his face was handled really well and that smile. :dread:

Similar to All might being drawn with a classic western comic style (Horikoshi is a massive geek for western culture) Shigaraki is often drawn in a super-detailed horror-inspired style to accentuate that creepiness.

Horikoshi also has a bit of a hand fetish as he thinks hands are second to faces in terms of showing expression.

I've joined the hype train and have started watching my hero academia, I'm on episode 3 so far, and man those first two episodes really make me hate Deku (too much crying, but I guess it makes us see how much he cares about being a hero) and the explody guy. It seems to be getting good now though

Someone on GAF thought Deku was obnoxious. Blew my mind.

On to the last 3 eps of MHA S2 :( Currently in middle of ep 18.

The fight with Hero Killer was intense and his blood quirk was *creepy af*! :toot: I'm guessing his other quirk is a kind of uncontrollable AoE fear?

Hand crushing curse :lol:

Didn't think I'd ever feel sorry for him but I feel bad for Bakugo being left out of the fun.

Woof.

I believe Stain has just the one quirk. That scene was drawn out a bit longer in the anime and I think they went slightly overboard showing off his presence and bloodlust, it certainly did lead to confusion amongst the anime viewers.

I don't feel bad for Bakugou, he got a sweet new haircut and pair of skinny jeans thanks to #4 hero Best Jeanist. :lol:

Newest chapter of BnHA was well worth the wait. Deku sure is living up to his reputation as an absolute MADMAN. :wub:

I don't know how it managed it, but I think Dr. Stone really has taken over from BnHA and One Piece as my favourite weekly manga. Simply superb again and judging by its popularity it's very likely to get an anime.

The mouth says smug anime girl, but the eyes and hands say internal torment. :lol:

:fp: at self. I thought ep 20 was final S2 ep of MHA. Turns out I have 5 more eps to go! :toot:

Gonna have to stream them, though, as place where I got 'em before had all its links nuked by MEGA. boo!

ep 20: I like comic relief Bakugo :wub: but good to see him back to his old self for a split second.

Aye, I remember you saying. The ones I downloaded had subs which didn't work on VLC and so had to download Kodi player.

The 3 or 4 episodes before the finale are the perfect mix of comedy and action. :wub:

Making my way through Kimetsu no Yaiba to try and get back into my old reading habits. First couple of arcs feel a tad rushed but from around chapter 20 onward it really finds itself and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Should hopefully be up-to-date by tonight.

I want to try watching that Gal show but it looks like Tokyo tosho is down and I know Nyann torrents also doesn't work anymore.

Also what torrent client do you guys use? I've heard uTorrent is now crap and filled with adware/bitcoin miners


https://www.acgnx.se/
https://nyaa.si/


Does it have to be torrents?

https://animekaizoku.com <where I recently nabbed MHA.
https://www.reddit.com/r/megalinks/ <you'll need to download Mega.
http://kissanime.ru <good streaming site. Watched Berserk films + OPM on it without issue.

Oh bloody hell. How long before first ep of s2?


I just saw this thanks!

Also, Karl was right, Galko is pretty damn great. :wub:

I ended up watching all of Galko-chan after seeing those posts. :lol:

Damn bite-size episodes are a nightmare for getting me hooked on something... watched all of Saiki Kusuo no Psi-nan in a couple of days due to the short episodes.

Hadn't realised Psi-nan was a short. Will pop it on the plan-to-watch.

I know both Qikz and I are big fans of Tonari no Seki-kun. It's quite different to Galko-chan (less lewd, and a bit more surreal & slapstick), but the main thing is it's a very funny short, so give that a go as well.

Oh, and I don't know if there will be anyone else here who is a Kemono Friends fan, but this is pretty funny & accurate.

(Spoilers for Kemono Friends and End of Evangelion.)

For short series definitely watch Tonari no Seki-kun. So good.

Then from mother strawberry floating Trigger watch Uchuu Patrol Luluco and Inferno Cop. Both incredible.
