How Hideshi Hino stories more commonly turn out

Highly relatable I hate when this happens to me

I havent even read this and i know its gonna end with the ugly insect otaku turning into a giant spider or something and killing the blonde girl even tho she did nothing wrong.

In every other Hideshi Hino manga, yes, but this one rather unusually ends with the bullied child just turning into a bunch of butterflies and nobody else getting eviscerated alive or melting into clots of pus.

Disappointing. Actually just a sweet and sad story of a little girl hated even by her own parents who wanders off into the woods and becomes something she loved.

We do see her old skin getting eaten by maggots, though. Hino seldom draws a Manga where nobody gets eaten by maggots.

I like how genuinely terrifying this show can be.

Today Sarah learned that if you set out to draw a harpy but don’t include enough humanoid features you end up with just a weird bird. 
She’s got little bottles there with hot and dry cures to balance the humors, and her braids are made from patients she lost.

#but I find it pretty hilarious that the most chilling thing in this dystopia is that men have to ask permission to have sex with women

nailed it

men are punished for raping women? sounds like a fantasy novel to me

a good book.

Someone actually thought having to always get consent sounded like a dystopian horror setting

What are your favourite Zelda bosses? Lotta bugs there. And I can't help thinking of Odolwa as your Terminan counterpart.

Vitreous, bizarrely referred to as Mr. Vitreous in this Nintendo power comic

Bilocyte because its body branches into eye stalks throughout its host and probably looks really cool if we saw it in its entirety

And Dead Hand is just one of the coolest, creepiest bosses ever, more effective than almost anything in a survival horror title.

I’ve virtually never actually played a Zelda game I just have encyclopedic knowledge of fictional monsters

You got your speculative evolution in my pocket monsters!!!

Scolipede’s quadrupedal design is really pretty ingenious from a scientific perspective. Four limbs are generally the most a large animal can afford to expend energy on so a myriapod emphasizing just four functional legs while the rest get almost vestigial is exactly the kind of body plan it would want at this size.

It’d even make sense for it to at least keep those remaining legs for defense, since every single leg of some centipedes can secrete venom. Not as potent as the enlarged front pair (commonly mistaken for “fangs”) but if one walks across you, your skin may break out in a trail of painful red footprints.

shamander is for bardic-feline, roanne the vulpix is for neko, persian is for @its-just-a-mod, jessie the raichu is for keprambles. sableye is for someone who sent me a note, but they never responded to me so i dunno who they are :o the poison types are mine tho

What if the reason cows get abducted by UFOs is because they’re under the control of an evil skeleton who wants to steal all the world’s milk to become M E G A  S K E L E T O N?

Hey, it's gnat that I wish all mosquitos were dead. But I wasp wondering if you'd happen to agree with meATBEES, in that flying leeches would be a tad bit more preferable. I mean, if you had to (ugh) choose.

I don’t mind mosquitoes much personally. I’m with Ned Flanders: the itchy bites are just kind of satisfying.

Of course they carry diseases that kill millions of people, but we can’t really blame mosquitoes themselves; those diseases are taking advantage of them as well.

If all mosquitoes were replaced with flying leeches we might be in a bit more trouble though, actually; the bite of even a tiny leech continues to bleed profusely for many hours, unlike the nearly microscopic bite of a mosquito. There are some unconfirmed but believable historical records of people dying from blood loss with too many leech bites.

Yo, Mr. Leechman! I have no idea if this has been asked before, but...what do you think of Pacific Rim's kaiju?

Actually really underwhelmed because I’ve seen so many hundreds and hundreds of bizarre, wacky kaiju from Ultraman and the like. Basically every design in Pacific Rim has a bunch of more fun-looking counterparts in other franchises.

Like, out of all of them, I probably like Raiju the most, the crocodile whose “real” head is in its mouth, but Raiju is just a homage to Ultraman’s Gaborah who has way more character:
