In indigenous Ainu culture one of the ways to propose marriage to someone was for the "man" to visit the "woman's" house and eat only HALF of a bowl of rice handed to him by her. If the "woman" ate the remaining half of the bowl of rice then she accepted his proposal, if she she didn't eat the remaining rice and placed it beside her then she rejected his offer for marriage.Previous Thread: >>3694528
Thank you anon I thought of making one but curled into my chair instead and fell asleep.
The series gets so much art I literally cannot find the fanarts I saved a few days ago anymore. I should make more sub-sub-folders.
So excited that there's a new thread. I have much to share
>>3735543Is this character male?
There is so much meido fanart for this series I could fill an entire thread with that stuff alone.
Usami is flawless. I some weirdly perverted way, but still.
>>3735665It's the best
>>3735672God I love Tsurumi meidos. I can even see him doing this and having fun with it. I wouldn't survive his sweet food and drinks though.
There are a lot of recent fan comics made that made me feel things. Not sure if I am turning into a fag or getting old of if it's just this particular series and its talented fans that do this to me.
IS GOLDEN KAMUY REALLY OVER!?
>>3735784It ended months ago
There should be a harem VN with Tsurumi as MC. What I wonder about the most is what the Nikaidou route would be like.
>>3735784Not if you deny it in your heart
Kirawus is so fucking cute.
August 2nd is Kiroranke's birthday!
>>3736072Kadokura is one of those characters I expected to be killed right away because I swear he would have been just a one-time goon in every other type of series. I am glad he made it.
>>3735642I like how much catboy/animalboy art the characters get.
>>3735541Would you eat the other half of Kirawus's rice anon?
>>3736588No. [spoiler-if-spoilers-were-possible-here]Because he is already taken[/spoiler]
>>3736798Cute seal charm...
>>3736798I often wonder what exactly it is that makes the characters of this series so likeable. Maybe it's just the right mix between a serious and sometimes even tragic story about adult men, quirks and pandering while avoiding the pitfalls these types of series usually have.
Will you get the Tsurumi neko? I hope I won't miss the pre-orders I need him in my life. Maybe Usami and Hijikata too.
Which nispa would you feed?
>>3737327>tfw you will never eat that shit together with Tsurumi
Poor Tsukishima not being used to physical touch outside of violence breaks my heart
>>3737392Personally, I want to hurt him. I like him a lot.
>>3737392I wish we could have followed the daily hijinks of Tsurumi's harem for longer.
>>3735702I think it's a mix of great characters and talented fans. I miss em.
>>3737427Yeah me too. The good thing is that the other fans feel the same so they cope with art. I see so much good stuff popping up now that thematizes losses, characters moving on or clinging to the past. Especially Koito/Tsukishima, Tsurumi/Koito- or Tsukishima and Ogata/Yuusaku get a lot of good stuff.
>>3735702>>3737427The most bittersweet ones for me are the Koito/Tsukishima comics that are referring to the final volumes. It's always about Tsukishima drowning, being broken or trying to reach Tsurumi at very the end and Koito appearing to call him back, hold him back or pull him up while Tsurumi is being left alone, turns around and leaves or is already gone/dead, dissolves into thin air or something. I wish they wouldn't always consist of at least six pages I would post them but I don't want to flood. My point is that I agree that the fans are really creative and the story is providing enough good material to work with it.
>>3737484An obsessive Tsurumi is definitely the type to pretend to be wounded to lure you through pity, Bundy-style
>>3737583Tsurumi is the kind of guy that would do everything to allure others and he would enjoy it. He is a character I can imagine wearing a maid costume if it makes Usami or whoever else happy and he wants happy underlings because it means they stick to him.
>>3735541you mean there weren't 47 genders in ancient ainu society?
>>3735541What if you accidentally eat it though? Fleeing?
>>3737625No you must enjoy your beautiful arranged Ainu marriage anon
Is there any GK merch that doesn't exist you desire? Sounds strange and it's not my highest priority but I wish there were some little acrylics or a sleepy cat of Nikaidou too to allow me to have a complete 7th division set. At least regarding the active characters. Wouldn't complain if Yuusaku ever got anything either, he was a good guy and I like his design.
>>3737654as long as its not to a w*MAN then im satisfied
>>3737734I like these two
>>3737738Hey me too
I need sex with this noseless bastard
>>3737746I want cat. Would say Tsurumi too maybe, but I am not worthy of him.
>>3737749Both are good choices
>>3737751They both have so much god tier art I am glad this series has so many great artists.
I was quite surprised when I realized Tsukishima isn't really popular in the west. He was always among my top three characters in this already good series in which almost every character is a 10/10 for me anyway.
I think Tsurumi would even look elegant while drowning or getting shot dead.
This series is getting more new doujinshi than I can afford. Now this is a new experience for me.
>>3737897he's a beautiful man
>>3737958He is the reason I got into GK. Didn't start it for him but he was one of the rare cases where a characters left an instant impression on me. I saw a few panels and remembered him years later, name and role. It works even for the anime. I also thin that the wound he has emphasizes his eyes even more and he has some particular way of moving and posing compared with others. I like that characterization in this series anyway. You would most likely be able to tell who is Tsurumi, Okada and others if you only saw their naked silhouettes just by the way they sit or move. Besides looking different and having different ages on top of this. It's the opposite of samefaces and characters you can only tell apart due to one trait or the hair style they have. Something that annoys me quite regularly in manga and anime. Sorry for retarded blog shit I just wanted to say that I like his design a lot.
>>3738002>cat>bunny>monkeyWhat kind of creature is Nikaidou? I assume Tsukishima is the only human of Tsurumi's zoo.
>>3738146I need him to manipulate me until I can't think straight anymore
>>3738306I blame the mangaka for shilling him so hard. Who can hate him if he always appears with those pretty flowers and comes off as a genuine saviour? Plus he is charming as hell, Usami and Koito never had a choice.
>>3737654I would happily steal Kirawus from under Kadokura's nose
I cannot even imagine how fucked things would be if these two became a pairing
>>3738562They'd probably be best buds if it wasn't for that scheming Tsurumi!
>>3737003Sugimoto then Shiraishi <3
>>3738695Wonder if being friends instead of rivals and haters would have kept them busy with more positive activities or if they would commit twice as many crimes together.
>>3737598Probably not that many, but they might have had other genders. Having other gender identities seems to be a thing in indigenous cultures.
Are there any characters you hated at first or expected to never like but ended up favoring later? Because this has happened with Tsukishima, Ogata and Koito to me.
>>3738722I like to imagine more crimes.
>>3738808It would be the rampage route if it was part of a VN.
>>3739090Their ending made me tear up like a lot of shit in this manga but this time in a positive way. Tsukishima got some fucking great character arc and end. Would read a whole sequel about these two.
>>3739090I don't ship them but they look good together like this.
I ship everybody with Tsurumi I'm a simple man
>>3735598It's a good problem to have.
>>3739275First fandom world problems, I love it. There are so many new and old doujinshi for this that nobody could ever possibly scan them either. At least better than my older fandoms in which I was literally the only one making art for certain series at some point or certain characters. Speaking of it I got a bunch of new GK doujinshi, I should see if I can somehow scan them without wrecking them completely. A lot of newer doujins have these very small formats, they are good to hold and read but scanning will probably be a pain in the ass. But this series has so many doujins and basically no scans it's a shame, at least the old ones that will probably never get reprints again should be uploaded everywhere one day.
>>3739285Lately I've seen artists in other fandoms uploading some of their older doujin for free on pixiv, so it's easy to get decent res images for people who want to translate. Might happen with GK too.
>>3739231you just have a good taste
>>3739292>Might happen with GK too.Already happening with some, pic related artist uploaded a whole bunch of older doujins on pixiv for example. Most of them are nsfw SugiO with Ogata topping by the way (OSugi?), if anybody is interested.
>>3739293I am sad I could only grab a Peta Peta doujinshi with Tsurumi/Koito so far, I wish doujins with best boy were more common. A bunch of new ones got recently released though, should probably watch toranoana more closely. The funny thing about Tsurumi is that you can legit pair him up with half of the cast and there would be enough canon material to make it seem plausible.
>>3739300Fuck i love that twisted liar so much! that is true you can ship him with so many characters. I really love TsuruTsuki
I need them
>>3739376The cool thing about TsuruTsuki (besides consisting of two of my three favorite characters) is that I like the trope of the emotionally distant but deadly loyal follower to be the true choice and last man standing while the avid fanboys or characters with obvious crushes eventually change or disappear. This doesn't mean that I am not into others/Tsurumi, I just like them for other reasons. Tsukishima is so silent and pragmatic that he is almost getting overlooked at times, he doesn't beg for attention and his loyalty is taken for granted by outside observers but Tsurumi knows.
Everytime I think I have finally found all GK artists someone retweets a new one and I go to their profile and find 5 others.
>>3739402I always check their likes, replies, replies from other people on their own drawings to find others... no GK artist is safe from me and my love.
I wouldn't have ever expected to see more Yuusaku art flooding twitter than anything with the actual main character but that's the thing right now. I admire the dedication Ogata fans have, so much of that art is so fucking pretty.
>>3739390Extreme, almost miserable, loyalty is such an underutilized trope. I love it so much.
>>3739528Yeah I dig these characters. I guess it's one of the types I am always into. Plus points if the loyal guy is the devote guardian or servant of a deranged antagonist. It ads some special layer to it since they are usually reasonable characters but execute the most insane orders because the guy they are serving told them so. Tsukishima is a good example. Half of the time I have the impression that he considers Tsurumi's actions and plans exaggerated or crazy, but he will never hesitate doing exactly what he wants even if he comes home burnt and bleeding.
>>3739528>last image is about Tsurumi againCrane fags always win
>>3739531I like it when the loyal party oversteps his boundaries a bit and acts as a somewhat forceful kind of caretaker to the deranged party. I wish a bit more of the Tsukishima/Koito dynamic translated over to Tsukishima/Tsurumi>he will never hesitate doing exactly what he wants even if he comes home burnt and bleeding.Hnng. A man like that deserves a reward.>>3739545Here yes but on /y/ it's mainly Ogata
>>3739582>Here yes but on /y/ it's mainly OgataI love Ogata porn but it's tragic that in canon he is most likely a fragile virgin or very awkward during sex instead of the the experienced turbo slut everybody pictures him at. At best I can imagine Tsurumi playing with him while Ogata is lying there staring into the void like his dakimakura suggests. Maybe there would have been hope for him if he hadn't always and deliberately pissed people before they had the chance to get close to him, as a perma-channer I can kinda relate though.
>>3739598Pretty sure Noda confirmed Ogata is a virgin
>>3739669Yeah. It's not just the sexual part, he generally isn't as cool as he comes off as and I don't mean this negatively. Actually, rather the opposite, cool characters are everywhere and they are usually superficial. Ogata is more of an awkward guy that can't fit in anywhere and would be perceived as creepy or legit retarded for the lack of reactions, he just happens to be cool when he's sniping because that's his talent and it just happens to be important for this specific setting. Take that away and you have a borderline-autistic misanthrope that LARPs as a cat, probably because he feels closer to solitary wild animals than to humans.
>>3739702Turbovirgin Ogata has his charms. Once he ends up getting into the sex, even if he's doing it awkwardly, it could be hot with the gap moe between how misanthropic he usually is. Also he'd be perfect for teasing and bullying.
>>3739916He reverts back to deadpan mode if he's insecure I think, but I would love to see more art in which he slowly acts more normal after warming up to someone or something. Though normal in this case would be cat mode I guess. He acts like a cat when he is calm IIRC.
