Sunday update likely to be delayed (in a worst case scenario, to Monday), I was struck by excessive sleep during the week + shuffled work schedule.

Thank you for your patience.

As far as I and my searches on the internet go and know, there are/is only 12 episodes/1 season currently.  No announcements for a 2nd season have been made.

Tokyo Ghoul Episode 11 Rambles

Nothing happens.  Well ok, scenes happened. More under the cut about anime. It anyone, especially the manga readers, wants to chat, feel free to comment in the [Disqus Section] of the post.

Minor Spoilers I guess?

I also talk about my gripes about certain kinds of graphic depictions of violence and how this anime handles it (mostly how I don’t think it uses it in a very narrative-strong way).

There is yelling and hitting.

TWC just doesn’t want to function, but you can see the followup (answered 3 asks!) from this incentive I also still appreciate the votes since people have found the comic through there.

The askbox is open for your wonderful questions! As always, if you enjoy the comic consider reblogging so that new readers can find the comic.

Tokyo Ghoul Episode 10 Rambles

Sorta Spoilers for the New Episode? Warning: I don’t have praise for it.

Not-FAQ:
"Don’t like, don’t watch, blankd!" - I am 10 for 12 episodes of this thing, I also find it helpful to examine the media I consume.

The other day I received this lovely fanart of Kresin’s Monsterform from rakusaru!  They’re a bit new to tumblr and were shy about sharing this, but with their permission, I’m posting it here to share with the rest of you!

You keep on doing your awesome thing dS fans~!

It’s time for the DeSTRESS Incentive Roundup! Featuring the sad one from July and all of August’s!  I’m trying a new format for this since many of these answers were HUGE- click the High Res Links to view the answers in full!

I’m beginning to detect a trend.

[Ask 42 - “What Can People Do” -> “Where are People not in Pain?”]
(Link to the ask mentioned in 42, aka Ask 19 part 2)
[Ask 43 - “Monsterform/Character Design Babbling: Raz and Cheres”]
[Ask 44 - “What’s it like having a Chiranoble’s Eyes?”]
[Ask 45 - “Can Souls Fall in Love and get Married in Mionfaer?”]
[Ask 46 - “What if Martae and Kresin Swapped Bodies for a Day?”]
[Ask 47 - “Can Chiranobles, Bezzafrayl and Souls FrikFrak for a Baby?”]
(People seem REALLY interested in a followup for Ask 47, so you can look forward to that in the upcoming update incentive.)

Breaking out Monsterforms and maybe other things!

TWC’s login is still being a piece of trash, but you can see the incentive (about ~offspring~) [here].  Even if I can’t change the incentive on TWC, you can still vote since people have found the comic through there.

The askbox is open for your wonderful questions! As always I appreciate reblogs, they help new readers find the comic.

It’s Time for Cake - Tokyo Ghoul (Anime, Impressions up to Ep. 9)

I haven’t done a media rambling in a while so let’s have at it. I watched Tokyo Ghoul instead of watching the gay swimming anime thanks to finally following up on it from the trailer GIFs I saw floating around my dash some time ago.

I don’t know if it’s my personality (picky and critical jerk) or something else. There are aspects that could have lead to a better watch and there are some choices that make me wonder if they’re weaknesses or intentional mockery of certain tropes/cliches, and if it’s all just buildup for some payoff in the last few episodes that may justify these elements.

Either way, maybe it will help you think about things if you have similar elements in your own work. Spoilers for up to Episode 9 of the ANIME (if I messed up an anime detail, feel free to correct me. Manga readers are welcome to point out differences but no spoilers from the manga please) I also strongly recommend using the [Disqus section] in this post if you want to discuss things.

Everything continues to go well. :D

Today’s incentive is about two characters switching bodies for a day!   TWC is being uncooperative, but fear not, you can see the incentive [here] and I’d really appreciate if you’d still vote since people have found the comic through there.

The askbox is open for your wonderful questions! And thank you for the reblogs, they help new readers find the comic.

*[Ch6, pg 33] What a party. Swing that BonkBonk!

A nightmare is couched in the idea of something surreal, fictional, uncertain, and the silver lining that one can wake from it. A nightmare can end.

But a dream is a want, it is goal, it is a construction, and all things made can be unamde. A dream only dies when the dreamer does. For a fictional prompt I would ask “what if there was something that could destroy dreams with absolute certainty?” but that would be an exercise in redundancy.

(Sorry, got a bit rambly there, it is very late on my end, posting just because I think the Waker is cute in some way. This is not part of anything in particular.)
