LAST CHANCE IN 2016 TO POST /a/'s DAUGHTERFU
At least you can have as many daughterus as you like I add her to my ever expanding household this year.
Some people defend Tokyo Ghoul manga like it's a masterpiece in storytelling, yet I've been told more than once that it's just generic edgy shounen schlock. I call that inmature defense because they only say "It's great read it" but don't tell you what does bring new to the storytelling table. Please state your defense points, without mentioning its anime adaptation. Just focus on the manga
Most of the storytelling praise comes from Kaneki's development. Yes, a lot of his character is super edgy, but the author really buries the lead with a lot of his foreshadowing. The two biggest examples I can think of are a character talking about one of the MC's emotional tells. About 3-4 chapters later, we get a call back to it, as one would expect without a direct flashback to what the tell was. But then, about 25-30 chapters later (which keep in mind is about 6 months of real time) in a very unusual conversation the tell happens again, but it's one panel thing and no attention is directed to it, so it's pretty easily overlooked if you aren't paying attention. For those who did notice it though, it threw up a huge flag of "wait why would he be lying about that?" and added some mystery to a character we thought we knew pretty well by now.
The other example is the title of the second part, which has a translation trick in it. When the title got name dropped and explained, everyone felt super dumb since it was staring them in the face the whole time, but in fact it required a very specific character (as in symbol) that you wouldn't normally throw into a translator to get the translation the author was going for.
Then there's other stuff like scenes and chapters in part 2 mirroring and calling back to the same numbered chapters and scenes in part 1.
I watched this yesterday after seeing several people put it on their worst-of-the-year lists and I got morbidly curious.
I was surprised. Its not great, and it definitely gets worse as the season goes on, but I found it enjoyable enough to finish.
Why does it get so much hate?
year end animago image clearing: ITT we post images that we will delete after posting in the name of clearing our pc's phones and magical dingus boxes for the end of the year so we will have lots of space for fresh 2017 images
How can anyone stomach this depressing pathetic human piece of reincarnated feces?
Say something nice about Azusa.
She's not my favorite K-On but her relationship with the rest of the band, and particularly Yui, put the show on a level above your average CGDCTs.
You may have one of these maids for your tonights amusement.

When do you guys think catgirls will be biologically engimeered?
They'll be engineered in 2045, but you will die the day before they go on sale.

FMA is the only franchise with any dignity. Everything else is pandering garbage for pedophiles and autismlords.
