Also thanks OP, I am now reading the manga and am watching the anime.
I tried it because I thought the artstyle and characters were cute
the obvious lola/shota fetish bait turned me off instantly
don't get me wrong I love me some good shota/loli but it's kinda like panty shots, it undermines the credibility of the anime itself when they're the ones doing it, I can't take the story seriously anymore when they do that obvious shit
it's really shoehorned in, like I didn't really care when the boy said remarks about his own penis, I guess if you don't know anything then wondering about yourself is normal, but then when the girl started doing it, saying that stuff about the stick etc, that's just bait
I have seen ecchi/hentai anime before just for the hot stuff in it I'm not a prude or anything, I was just searching for a story not for fapbait, and I guess I really don't like when you mix the two in a too obvious way, it's cheap and makes the anime look ridiculous
See and I feel exactly the opposite way. I enjoy it if a good story has shota mixed in. There's few shows/manga/movies that do this and which are good (obviously because Shota is rare and looked down upon in the West).
So the few times we actually get a good story with Shota mixed in, I am in bliss. I can count on two hands the shows/manga with a good story and Shota elements.
I just wondered, because in one scene you see Rikos (small) breasts but Nanachi doesn't have them. I guess they're both of equal age. Or do cat-bunny-people (or whatever Nanachi is) not get breasts?
Also: Maybe some weeabo can chime in and say if Nanachi is a male or female name. Or if it is not a real name then if it sounds male or female. Domo.
Weeb here. The ambiguity is there because Nanachi uses gender-neutral pronouns to refer to herself, and when someone asked the author on twitter whether she was a he or a she, he playfully refused to confirm.
But honestly, it would make no sense for her to be male, she behaves 100% like a girl (getting flustered by Reg molesting her fur but not when Riko does it, striking a platonic friendship with Mitty, etc...). She's just too flat for her boobs to show under the fur.
Here's a tip anon, look at the filenames. Every picture named with that template come from pixiv. When it's [number]_p[number] (typically 0) it has been saved properly, when it's [number]_p[number]_masterblahblah it hasn't (meaning the pic wasn't right clicked>View and is in lower resolution than it should be).
I can't wait until I can buy the english translation manga in paper form.
Five years ago I swore I would never buy a paper book anymore (last book I bought was A Dance with Dragons).
But Made in Abyss I have got to have.
Woah guys! I just noticed something!!
You guys know the ending song, right? This one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zf7IoqJgZXg
There's two voices singing: A female and a male one.
So the song is called: Tabi no Hidarite, Saihate no Migit, and when you search for the performers of the song it is Miyu Tomita and Shiori Izawa singing.
Now I had always assumed that one voice is Riko's and the other is Reg's. But look at pic related:
Nanachi is male confirmed!
You tried. I think there's going to be a second version of the song when nanachi shows up; currently she isn't singing in it yet.
Ah okay. So I have read everything. I'm really excited about Faputa.
