ITT: Post the most evocative and expressive faces in anime and manga.
>>216893794Overrated forced cringe kys
>>216893794I know it's a meme but that pannel unironically makes me feel emotions whenever I see it.
>>216893794K-K-KINO!?!?! I KNEEL!!!
Just open any chapter of Healslut.
>>216893794When I saw the OP my first though was "the kino face better be already posted"Memes and jokes aside it is really fucking good, like there's a reason it has become so iconic and a dumbass meme to begin with, so its completely fair to post it with the thread's topic
>>216893741Phos deserves better.>>216893794I have a complicated relationship with this meme, for one side I hate its forced nature but, on the other hand, it introduced me to based Fire Punch, so I should be grateful to our pack of wild shitposters roaming /a/ after all....
One of my favourite scenes from my favourite sports manga. Tatsumi's expression speaks a thousand words, got me tearing up.
>>216893794Here's a version without the watermark
Based Ohkubo, little else.Lower panel peers into my soul like no other.
>>216894613"Le rAndom" is not kino
>>216894640>randomYou should read fire force.
OPT threads were ruined after fire punch ended
>>216893794fpbpfire punch will always be a classic
>>216894613what the fuck is this
>>216894738>newfag detectedagni face was forced like a year after FP ended and no one makes a big deal about it in actual OTP threads anyways
Absolute point of peak joy
>>216893794someone explain in-depth why this page is so good. Really let your autism out.
>>216893741Every jitsu wa reaction pic
>>216894969This is terrifying
Here's a recent face that has been creating waves.
>>216893741innocent and innocent rouge have such amazing detail
>>216893794i have never read fire punchwhat's the context behind this panel?why did this guy make this weird face?what is he looking at?what is he thinking?what emotions is he feeling?how did the manga's plot lead to this facial expression?
>>216893905It became a meme previsely because it's so good
>>216893794Unironically this was the first thing I thought of
>>216893794this is literally me
>>216897353The main character realizes the only way he can go on is to knowingly live a lie, and this lie is damaging to himself and everyone around him.He's beginning to buy into his own lies, turning them into a delusion.He's looking at his sister.He's thinking that he's going to LIVE.He's feeling absolute despair mixed with false joy.The entire plot was fucking thrown to the wayside and we were left with only KINO.
>>216893741Really gets me
>>216897353You ever seen your sisters pussy while you are in a completely rock bottom emotional state?
>zara zara zawaaaa
>>216894462Hana is peak kino
>>216897870I was waiting for that one KEK.
>>216894359What emotion is that?
>>216898538did she fuck her son yet?
You know whats more expressive than one face? Two faces.
>>216898569The utter exhausted determination of having walked so very, very long, all the way to the edge of the solar system, while your body starts to fall apart, knowing everyone you've ever met on your travels is dead.
>>216894613Why did he filter the face so shittily?
>>216893794when will fire punchposting end? it's been going on for at least a full year now
>>216897932>the shiny teethEvery fucking time
>>216897679I just reread the manga last week and can confirm this is a KINO explanation
Anything from the OG Devilman.
>>216900139I think it's pretty much board culture by now, the sheer emotion of the thing is amazing
>>216900139it will LIVE forever
Let me start.
>>216898465His suicide attempt was sad, contemptible, heartwarming and hilarious at the same time, a kino scene by its own right.
>>216894978Nothing beats JWWW and Grand Blue when it comes to expressions.
>>216894969The first time I ever opened this thumbnail I nearly had a hard attack because I didn’t see .gif at the end of it
2021 Kino Face
>>216901126>>216894236Fuck off with your shitty representation of snk.>>216894682This is better. Or his faces when Frieda speaks to Grisha
>>216894970haha fire go fwoooosh
never fails to give me at least a moment's pause
Surprise this hasn't been posted.The single panel that saved Berserk.
>>216893741This isn't related to the thread but I wanted to post it because I thought it was funny
>>216893794Just came here to check. Good job.
I still remember you dork ;_;7
>IM NOT GOING TO DIE AND I WILL NEVER TAKE MY MEDS
>>216903770I started reading a bit of this and it's awesome
>>216902319>and she immediately turned into a screaming wreck when she saw Guts, just to twist the knifeso cheap
>>216893945Based slam dunk chad
>>216893794Came here to make sure it was posted
>>216895019>That moment when your iq surpasses 500
>>216902609I fucking love real man >>216903770Pristine taste
>no one has posted this yetsay what you want about isayama's writing, but he can pull off facial expressions really well (except happiness)
the purest joy
>>216893794came here to post this.
>>216905932i didn't know 3-gatsu got this dark
>>216894359That's pretty based of you anon
>>216905358I like this face better
>>216894962utterly based, usoguichad
>>216906948I hate how thin the lines are thin and its so white that it all just turns into one big blob.
>>216893741If we're going for expressive faces then Tsukushi has got to be near the top of the list.
>>216898465Probably laughed the hardest in this chapter
>>216895019This fucking pageI felt a chill when I read it
>>216897679>this lie is damaging to him and everyone around himIt hurt nobody, really. 10 years later and that lie didn't really have any baring on what happened.
>>216893741Not Hentai, this is a normal manga.
>>216903694I'd like to thank the anons that recommended this to me the other day. I'm on chapter 15 now and on top of enjoying it as much as things like Fire Punch, it's also helped me realize the illness that has been plaguing my mind for many years now is likely schizophrenia
>>216909783he's evil isn't he
>>216893741I miss her
>>216904758was going to post this, pretty much my entire life summed up into a four panel gag
I've read Fire Punch, Tokyo Ghoul, re:, and SnK recently. What else do I read for some pure KINO?
>>216894742>>216894803Kino fight. Can’t wait for Imai to animate it
>>216895912Currently drawing Marie Sanson and throughout this process I've learned that sakimoto is truly the GOAT
>>216894462One of the most unique characters to come out of that series. I miss her.
>>216893794I also clicked on the thread to see how soon this had been posted
>>216907147Thanks, i knew something about the art was odd but I couldnt express what it was
> Tfw no Helk posts
>>216893741BUILT FOR BREEDING
>>216910717I never understood this, and I'm not trying to be funny. Was she smiling in an oafish way or was she smirking to be a smartass?
The least expressive one is the most poignant.
>>216910129>vertical goat eyesOf course not anon
>>216893945>Friend told me they lost the series in the end>Think 'why would I want to read it then'>Read it anyway>It's fucking amazingRead Slam Dunk.
>>216899947I miss AIKI. Not that much, but I do.
>>216894613Could this be the next agni?
>>216893741Anything in punpun
>>216911343gr8 work, anon
>>216914762The way the faces were drawn in that series is what initially made me want to read it. The realism of the art also helped.
>>216913504I can't believe """people""" still refuse to accept this is his best work.
>>216903770not many do it as well as hideki arai
>>216912710Someone should do one of these for Korean Guts.
>>216911343good stuff, anon! keep on grinding away at that.
>>216893794I love firepunch
>>216893794K I N O
>229 posts>no one has posted Homunculus yetwhat the fuck happened to /a/?
Gif related was for me.
>>216907375I hate myself for knowing what this is.
>>216908934It's mostly about the guilt he had to live with, knowing that he caused the death of one girl's twin and Tena got raped and pregnant because he torched Behemdolg, also the fact that they were Doma's family, whom he lied to about being his disciple.It's really such a clusterfuck of a situation that you'd go crazy having to lie through your teeth everyday like that for 10 years
>>216917066Why hate yourself? It's a good manga.
>>216914365https://mangadex.org/title/1773/ressentimentBy the same author of I Am Hero and Boys on the Run.
>>216895081This is my fetish
>>216912608she really doesnt want to share the potato but doesnt want to show it
>>216897353>>216894970Villain who looks like MC's dead sister gets amnesia, MC brainwashes her into thinking she's his actual sister, MC gets a feeling so complicated.
>>216893794the look of a man living with the family of the man he murdered for killing his sister, while pretending the woman who ordered that man to do it is his sister.truly kino
surprised no one posted this yet
>>216893794I lol'd so hard. Can anything top the kino?
>>216897810I will never forgive Sandvich for this
The look of pure unfiltered SEETH that Light has after Near calls him ''just a murderer'' is so good.
>>216893794On a very similar note, Agni's face on the rightmost panel here
>>216893794/a/nons sucking off this manga everytime it is mentioned makes me believe that no one really likes it and they just force the meme everywhere
>>216903694crazy I just finished Freesia and Fire Punch last week, dunno what to read now.
>>216922693Alice from hell, Freesia isn't Matsumoto's best work
>>216922470Fire Punch is just that good, the spammers are annoying but I can't bring myself to dislike it because of them
>>216894970This face is a testament to the acceptance of fiction and the breaking of a man's psyche, any interpretation invariably leads down the same road. His loss of any tethers which would bind his sanity is accompanied by a warping of reality which could break any diligent person, at this very moment, Agni ceases to be a moral paragon and shatters under the sheer emotional catharsis brought about by achieving his goals and shutting out that truth which is the cold white death of both Luna and the world. It is the lowest level to which any character can sink, this is the face of a man staring at the mouths of Satan and convincing himself he is seeing God, utterly fragmented by suffering and just wanting to rest. That is what makes the heights to which he eventually soars so impactful, this single moment actually made the manga a modern masterpiece, it is the absolute zenith of any aspiring storyteller, and a testament to the psychological fragility of lonely man.
>>216922470It's unironically just that good. You can knock it out in a day or two if you're any good at reading, give it a shot if you haven't
>>216898569tiresome, losing sanity
>>216894359Blame!fags, please tell me what version I should read for the better experience
>>216902311I like this one after he realises that Casca still goes full retard when she sees him
>>216894969I hate this.
>>216923985>>216923584I read it a few months ago, and I thought the first "section" was very interesting but then it turned into this surreal mess that just felt forced and came out of nowhere
>>216924804It honestly doesn't make that much difference until the later volumes if my memory serves right, go with the Master edition until then, then decide whether you want more details or better scan quality as to whether you wanna read the original or master. Even then it's a fairly minor difference, you're mostly just missing some force-fields like the one in pic related.
>>216926262I love Knights of Sidonia and Blame, but fuck they're hard to read; and I mean in the literal visual sense, the pages are just so dense
>>216926314Yeah, it's hard on the eyes but damn if it isn't good looking.
>>216893741This can be original kino face, Ishida and Fuji probably inspired each other. Whatever, I just miss this memester lord.
>>216922470clearly you weren't here for the storytime threads.Also Agniface is board culture forever now.
Peak of fkmt.
>>216924804As far as I remember its basically just one section against the Exterminator that is better in the original. Everything else is equal or better in Master Edition.
>>216910129I'm still expecting some sort of bait and switch
How the hell has it taken this long for someone to post a Golden Kamuy face?
>>216895081da teeth girl
>>216916916Too busy drilling a hole to the centre of my brain. No way am I stopping at the shell.
>>216928464Oh shit, Golden Kamuy. I've been meaning to watch it sometime.
>>216929355What do I look like to you?
>>216928464It's just too hard to pic one expression
>>216929449Read it, faggot.
>>216928464What is this expression meant to convey? I genuinely don't get it
>>216916844That era of vinland saga was peak
>>216930015Green Eggs and Ham but with brain
>>216929641You look exactly like my computer monitor...
>>216930015When someone eats something you consider disgusting but claims it's good and you reluctantly decide to try it because you've never tasted it so you can't wholehearteadly deny their taste.
>>216930187I can never get enough of Asirpa faces
>>216930600It's rare to see a series that can balance comedy and drama so well
>>216911227prison school is absolutely hilarious and has many kino panels
>>216930642>animeonlys never got to experience thisI'm still mad they cut this
>>216898538yes some oshimi shuzo appreciation while waiting for new chapters of chi no wadachi I've been reading his other manga off and on started with aku no hana, then went onto boku wa mari no naka, then happiness and now im reading hyoryuu net cafe and ive gotta say although the facial expressions and general art style is different from all the rest compared to chi no wadachi I've thoroughly enjoyed all his series so far and now have a new genre which I most likely would've overlooked if not for this mangaka (who would've thought that all this was thanks to a single video by supereyepatchwolf)
>>216926491>Ishida and Fuji probably inspired each otherIshida actually mentioned in one of his streams that Fujimoto was his first commenter/fan back on the NEET forum, which. Ishida actually drew him fanart (of a Penisman character for some reason).
>>216893794Unironically the best opportunity to post this absolutely kino page.It's the perfect storm of emotion and plot. Everything in FP lead up to this moment
>>216931777you fujimotodrones deserve the bullet
>>216931275https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WC0uvgkolESo that wasn't the part of the episodes? That's pretty sad. Would've made for great after-credit scenes
>>216905436That’s a great fucking manga.
>>216911343I didn’t have to draw her to know that shit. He’s one of the best artists in manga currently.
also because no one else has I got (what I deemed the best face from the manga mentioned before>>216931341going in the order I read them in
>>216932412so first up was aku no hananext is boku wa mari no naka
>>216932504and finally hyoryuu net cafe
>>216894838Recent chapter of Fire Force. The setting is the post apocalypse of our world and whenever there is a scene from the pre-apoc it's photos with a filter like in that post. The women is one of the villains of the story.
>>216932694yeah u should check out his stuff its really good
>>216893741I haven't even read that series but that one page of someone with his incredibly damage, jagged face looking like they're crying sticks with me, I don't have it on me right now but it's incredible
>>216932727>>216932549so atm im reading both hyoryuu net cafe and baki
>>216893794Yep, this is kino
>>216893794Boring and predictable, while it was fun in the beginning the joke has ran it's course.
>>216933572Phos’ anguish is so real. I like the shift into homocidal wrath after the initial sorrow
I always liked this.
>>216893794This but unironically, so many emotions in one face
>>216893794wtf are those shitty scribbles
>>216893794KEYED AND LOCKED
Mostly because of all the shit that happened before we got to this point
>>216893794I KNEEL FUJIMOTO!!! TRULY THE KINO THIS ERA NEEDED!!!
>>216894970Agni as an MC does some really questionable stuff up to this point but you’re willing to let it slide since the world around him is so fucked up. You think hes less fucked up by comparison but this page shatters that thought.This is the point that you realize that he’s beyond redemption and everything he’s done is for his own pleasure and not just survival.
>>216935023More like he has finally been broken. He was able to cope by being led around by togata, but she’s dead. His new way of coping is considerably more wrong.
>>216926599that's fair, I was also spoiled on a few plot points so that might've taken a bit of enjoyment out of it
>>216933572>>216933302I'm pretty sure it's whoever that is but it was a whole single page of just their face
>>216922470did it seriously take you over a year to figure this out?
>>216935531I've seen plenty of unironic discussions about it, calling it a "kafka-esque" masterpiece etc.I didn't really enjoy it and see it as overrated but I can see some people liking it for what it is. Just look at the replies to my first post.
>>216935748>people using the term "kafka-esque">unironic
>>216935850I know it's dumb but I wouldn't put it past them
>>216895366mfw I have no faceRIP Shirley
>>216893794But of course
>>216893794Kino. simply Kino.
>>216898569Not finding net terminal genes
I'm sure that there are more expressive or wilder faces with Innocent or in the same manga, but this face helped make the story arc and the entire chapter hit hard.>>216893794Kino
