>>3764241Jesus I want to tentacle Denji so bad
Tomorrows Chapter and Episode will be...
>>3764275The anime will be shit until Angel/Beam/Violence appear and the manga will be shit until Denji is main character again.
>>3764275Asa and her gay little friend "cooldown" chapter I expect
>>3764302>Angelshit voice>Beamshit voiceViolence and Katana are our only hope
>>3764315Height difference is cute and hot at the same time
>>3764366I like the theory it's the chainsaw man devil. Maybe he will undo the work Denji is trying to do to be seen as a cool hero to get a gf
>Teen Aki is literally a head taller than himeno
the way the impostor holds yuko... hmmm
>>3764373I get Agni vibes from it
Bracing myself for CSM selfcest art.
Seiyuu is still shit but he's cute as a button
>>3764374San and Agni are really cute boys, too bad fire punch doesn't get a lot of fanart
It really feels like Fuji is just making shit up as he goes, with no set plan in mind. It's been 14 chapters and nothing has happened, I'm not surprised sales are down.
>no panel of him sleeping>holds Yuko upside down just like pic relatedYoshidabros... are we the endgame villain?
The Mappa agenda
>>3764390someone said it's because octopuses can mimic things, so yoshida mimed chainsaw manalso there wasn't a panel of him sleeping..i'd love to see villain yoshida
>>3764405oops, didn't saw you already mentioned the panel thing, sorry
>>3764408chainsaw men (real)
Fujimoto recommended a BL, "Sleeping Dead" by Asada Nemui, and has said his favorite new manga is "Okaei Alice" by Shūzō Oshimi, a genderbending romance. Thoughts? Keep in mind Lin also retweets Yoshiden.>>3764387This scene was super cute.
>>3764423I find it hard to expect anything real would happen with yoshiden but I could see him writing a kino gay oneshot at some point
>>3764395>shilling the worst shipCringe
>>3764423I remember comparing Sada and Yoru's design as a joke a while ago, but now I'm wondering, what came first? Did he read SD before part 2 or did he read it because people kept making the comparison?
i'll be satiated with some homoerotic blood drinking desu
>>3764423>>3764449He also recommended another BL manga (Karaoke Iko) and referenced Call me by Your Name in Goodbye Eri.
>No AkiAngel scenes (bar the first one) until 1 year or two moreFeels bad
>Akiden was trend in JapanUh oh
>>3764507not gonna lie this episode kind of made me see the appeal of it. just a bit.
>>3764507>Japan has shit tasteShocking.
>>3764507I never liked Akiden, but I think it's even more pointless of a ship now that Yoshiden exists and gives us the actual dynamic Akidens just shoehorn onto them. Aki isn't some ultra domtop rapist and he never will be.
All the characters feel pretty different to me in the anime and I think only Power got better than in the manga ver.
>>3764526Power is easily the best character in the anime. I'm holding out hope for Violence being cuter in the anime, but poor Beam is inevitably going to sound jarring with that voice. Has Tanjiro's VA ever done "gruff" sounding voices?
>>3764507Genuinely what's the problem with this ship? Aki is still the only male Denji remotely gives a shit about, they had their enemies to friends arc, contrasting colours, height difference and for the more fujos who like taboo they have age gap
>>3764513Mc x most popular Ikemen will be always popular regardless of the circunstances, It's a literal win-win formula. Plus there is age gap, fujos love that.t. Doesn't ship AkidenBtw Yoshida won't appear until 2024 if this shit is even getting a season 2.
>>3764545And Makima got the worst, jesus. There is no charisma or grace in her character in the anime. I'm not even a Makimafag but I liked her at that point in the manga.
beamjibros we will rise
>>3764605I think makima actually has some of her usual apeal in the ending visuals, it's only the anime that ruins her
>>3764600Imagine the slimey residue Octopus Devil leaves all over Yoshida's body.........
>>3764619>yoshida smells like the seafood section of a grocery storeyoshidabros...
>>3764507Just wait till the last episode with happy ball kickingAkiden will take over, Angelbros have no chance due to lack of content in S1
>>3764624The smell of the seafood aisle always turned me on
>>3764508This, I thought it was a joke before anime, but I'm starting to get the appeal now too. A tsundere adult mentor that is the only person in the room to stand up for a lonely dumbass Denji and the only person to genuinely treat him well
>>3764513Who tf can look at Aki beyond episode 2 and think "yeah, this is an ultra domtop rapist right here"? His whole appeal is his kindness and gentle nature that other csm characters lack
>>3764589>Aki is still the only male Denji remotely gives a shit aboutDoes Denji suffer from internal misandry or something? I know he is horny, but refusing to care or save or touch men is not normal. Aki was truly the only special one in his heart, and Aki is a saint ikeman
>>3764637superficially it still seems like the obligatory "we gotta pair the dumb mc with the emo guy" shonen ship, which turns me off the pairing, but it's not without its appeal>>3764639wouldn't be surprised if he got bad touched or something
>>3764589No romantic chemistry, also they feel like brothers and not in a sexy way.
>>3764635>Akiden will take overAnd then get cucked by Yoshiden, which is already happening.
>>3764639Denji sees Aki as a mom more than another male so he gets a pass
>>3764661Yeah, when they animate part 2 in 2027 lmao
>>3764659Neither does Aki Angel or any other fujo ship
>>3764661But Yoshiden and Akiden shippers overlap each other
post cute boys
>>3764665>Denji breastfeeding from Aki's chest...
>>3764673Part 2 needs more devil boys
>>3764677I'm giving up on Part 2, this is waifu garbage through and through
>>3764677i want longsword to make an appearance, he looked quite young to me>>3764679boy appreciators that consume waifufag media are god's strongest soldiers
>>3764679Can't blame you, if Yoshida ends up a midboss as some theorize him to be the doppleganger the only dude left is Dennis.
>>3764684one based idea i saw floating around was the possibility of it being a reincarnated blood devil
>>3764670Go back to /a/, tourist
Akiden is kino
>>3764712Not when Yoshiden exists
>>3764671Only in moonland, and even then most fujos are more passionate for Yoshiden because it's the objectively superior ship that has far more potential.
>>3764669>implying the manga alone isn't making it more popular than Akidenif it's already this popular now, I can't imagine how much coping you'll be doing when it's animated
stop being mean to the akidenbros, they're also based among the sea of hetshittery
>>3764719most akidens hate akiten for some reason
Man this needs more shipping potential because fighting over Denji homo ships when the guy will spend the whole manga lusting after every female is kinda retarded.
>>3764775THE SIZE DIFFERENCE AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
>>3764801>when the guy will spend the whole manga lusting after every female is kinda retardedYou have a point but that is big part of the appeal of Yoshiden.
>>3764801>Thinks mc lusting after girls will stop people from drawing him getting fucked by tentacleslol, lmao even
>>3764816Sisters this is starting to get gay now...
>>3764840angel pequeño ToT
>>3764816Not that, but arguing over gay ships is dumb, especially with a straight mc who might be an unironic misandrist. Nothing will ever come of any, so people should enjoy however they like. But having more options would not be a bad thing either
>>3764839Aki has a slutty body!
>>3764801Agreed. Denji ships suck and are peak delusion.
Akiten will never be popular, especially when Angel has a shota voice
>have to wait at least a year before mappa starts shilling them
>>3764904MAPPA will code Angel as a child. Look at them making his past love to look like a young teenager, it will happen
>>3764880fuji might be a waifufag but he draws some really cute boys
>>3764913Fuji is literally into BL and gay movies, he admitted that himself
>>3764901>[already popular ship] will never be popular lol
>>3764901>>3764907>Posting bait on /cm/
>>3764926when will my beautiful wife kishibe come back in part 2
>>3764901>Himenof/a/g is so mad he comes to /cm/
>>3765303The tentacle ooze all over Denji's face...
Doesn't even reach his shoulders muh
>>3765354>it's safe through cloth, right?what did he mean by this?
Why are AkiAngel so aesthetic together?
>>3764917Makima VA made her way less popular. If you think this won't happen to Angel and Akiten then youre delusional.
>>3765354>constantly gives Denji shit for protecting devils>Aki then gives up 2 months for a devilwhat did he mean by this?>>3765420>he's still coping and seething
>>3765420>a feminine voice for a trap character will ruin the character's popularity!!lol
>>3765421>>3765422Nip fujos don't like feminine voices for males and westoids will call Angel minor coded. You ship is fucked, just accept it
>>3765424>Nip fujos don't like feminine voices for malessource?>westoids will call Angel minor codedHe's an eldritch being.I think you need to cope, sis.
>>3765424in what fucking universe would fujos suddenly stop liking the 6th most popular femboy character because he has a feminine voice? Absolute retard.
>>3765420Compared to Makima I don't think lots of angel fans are expecting him to have a deep voice. He's supposed to be androgynous. Voice might be shit but it won't be as big a blow.
>>3765425Fujos like cute guys with a boy voice. >He's an eldritch being.And do you think if Angel sounds like a shota they surely won't label him a child?? Retard>>3765426He's going to sound like a generic femme shota. Sureeee that will make him popular, sureee that will make the ship with Aki popular. Fujos are stupid >>3765489Most were expecting a boy voice.
>>3765506Who cares. Angel is cute, p1 manga still exists, and some hack director with questionable casting choices won't change that.
Do you like Aki's dub?https://youtu.be/M9F8VADXjV8
Anyway here is Aki and his shota femboy wife
>>3765528He sounds like 56
>>3765528mordecai's voice is better
>>3765529Angel is too tall here
i want him...
>>3765506>>3765511>shitmeno tourist is still mad Sad
>>3765506>Most were expecting a boy voiceProof? Literally only saw that opinion on /cm/ and /a/.
>>3765527we need more of longsword bro in p2
>>3765570I want them all to transfer to Denji's school.
>>3765554We're all very aware of that Yoshida.
>>3765580someone mentioned the whip hybrid looks quite similar to the devil hunter girl that survived yuko's attack so let's see how that goes
>>3765563Just search up the voice choices for Angel pre oct >>3765562>Coping this hardYeah of course fujotroon suuuree because Angel sounding 12 will make him more popular just like happened with Makima having a loli va. Suuure westoid trannies won't say that Angel is a child, that he shouldn't be shipped with Aki and bash the ship the hardest they can. Suuure this won't make Akixangel a ship for shotacons. You lost fujosis, enjoy the Akihime chilling
>>3765639>just search up [vague thing]>admitted Akihimeshitter seething so hard he comes to /cm/>implying Twitter trannies will care about the voice when he's not human>implying his voice matters to fujos nearly as much as Makima's does to batshit Makimafags>implying you're not crying right nowlol
>>3765649>>When he's not humanThat is the whole point of minor coding retard>"Why is this kid being shipped with the 21 year old man??? He crearly sounds like a kid and is short so he must be one"There is already twitter trannies saying he's a minor even before the anime>>Won't happen the same as Makima!!Here your cope
>>3765639Twitter trannies think Himemo is a pedo groomer so why is an akimemo faggot ranting on /cm/
Stop replying to him
here's your future blood devil bro
>>3765726Power works so well as a boy it's insane
>>3765703Not anymore since they made Aki look like an adult in the flashback and even in the next episode most twitter trannies will defend her since she was drunk. Coper harder I want to see your reaction when people will start to call Akiangel pedophilia and bash hard on the ship
>>3765761I believe in fujokima
Does it feel like the body is being stabbed every time?
>>3765629I must have missed that among all the people saying it must be Denji in drag. /a/ is a disease.
>>3765741>Not anymore since they made Aki look like an adult in the flashback and even in the next episode most twitter trannies will defend her since she was drunk.>none of this is trueNow who's coping kek
>>3765697Yoshiden is extremely popular and sexualized among westoid fujos despite both being minors. No one is going to give a shit. I think you need to seek help, Akihimesis, you're too obsessed with Twitter and Akiten.
>>3765818>first Yuko>now thisfujimoto should make him wear the girl's uniform to satiate these people
>>3765821>None of this is true.Wow, now that's real cope fujosissy>>3765822Both Yoshida and Denji appear older than their actual age. There's no comparison and they look the same, except Yoshida is taller and that's it. That is why shipping them is not "problematic". Angel is not only very short but he is also going to have a shota voice. You think underage westoids won't bitch about Angel being underage coded or whatever? Because I just checked nip twitter and now people are plenty of people who started to call Angel a shota because of the va choice alone. Guess what? Akiten is a ship for shotafags now.
he's kind of cute
He's so pitiful
>>3765976pochiden remains cutest and canonest
>>3765949>Both Yoshida and Denji appear older than their actual ageStill minors.
Sisters, stop replying to the seething, coping, and dilating Shitmenofag and just post more Akiten
>>3766032i don't think aki is gonna survive this sisters...
>>3766046i hate the scratchy texture on pochita's chainsaw so much
MAPPA a shit but this episode made me like Arai. No in a husbando way, just like a good bro.Also Seigi is alive, pretty based.
>>3766072He's cool. Still think he was the Violence fiend
>>3765764Best ship right here.
>>3766072I like him better when he's Violence-kun.
Gun fiend was sexy
>>3766062Denji's psychotic boyfriend is sugoi
>>3766210Muh fucking dick
>>3766046Shota Denji sounds so bad that turns me off
>the anime sucks>part 2 sucksSisters, I'm losing interest in csm...
>>3766590Same, sister.But hey, at least we will see crying and handsome hair down Aki soon
>biweekly release again according to shueisha sitebased. the longer chapters were better paced as a whole.
>>3766590The anime feels so goddamn pretentious (outside of scenes with Power) and in love with itself, it's annoying.>let's focus on meaningless shit like Aki getting ready in the morning to make it seem deep and add mis en scene ooohhh
>>3766697>that denji pov scene with groomeno at the end of last episodethis is what trying to be cinematic does to a tv anime production
>>3766590>>3766697The direction of the anime feels too pretentious for it own when I never had that feeling from reading the manga. They could have added a scene of Aki and Denji interacting, finally making peace, learning to live together, understanding each other, and finally getting along without much trouble until Power arrives and brings chaos to the place again. Instead they skipped that and just put a scene of Aki doing his daily routine to appeal basic bitches, not interacting with Denji and at the end Denji comes out in the background doing his own thing. I was hoping they would add that one omake with Aki and Denji but apparently the omakes are too anime-like for the director.
>>3766590I dropped the anime already but I'm enjoying part 2
Spanish Aki sounds cute here: https://twitter.com/CSPerfectShot/status/1595670362569818113
>used to shit on CSM for its breakneck pacing>realize that was to its benefit now that the anime slows everything to a crawl and the whole thing is fucking boring
>>3766718taco dub chainsaw man unironically saving the anime
>>3766725The pacing in the first half was good despite it being fast. Then Fujimoto forgot to take his adhd pills around chapter 66 or so and shit became rushed
>>3766700>Instead they skipped that and just put a scene of Aki doing his daily routine to appeal basic bitchesI'm the basic bitch. Loved it.
>>3766714I dropped it too. Maybe I will watch it in spanish when it ends though
>>3766714>>3766818I also dropped the anime (after episode 2). I wonder how many folks out there did the same. I hear a lot but then again normies on Twitter/Reddit are lapping up the anime like butterflies do sugar water.
>>3766823>RedditIrrelevant>TwitterUm yeah but it's not a giga boom. I'd say it's having bit less of an impact than Kimetsu had at his peak in the west. I dropped the anime after episode 5 when they fucked up the Gun Devil intro. It's just disappointment after disappointment and I already dislike a lot the adaptation. Plus I'll never get used to Makima's VA. it sounds so off I wish I could mute just her at least. I saw a tiktok sharing that article about CSM anime feeling off and suprisingly a lot of normalfags were agreeing. This is how you know MAPPA truly fucked up.
>>3766828Forgot to mention but I'm not sure if twitter ""popularity"" counts. Reigen trends 3 times at month but that doesn't him or Mob Psycho popular. Anon posted a pic which showed that most of half of viewers in Japan dropped CSM anime already. I also know a lot of animeonly fags think the anime is boring, pretencious and overrated and they are weirded out at the awkward erotic scenes.And about Part 2, is ok but is kinda hard to care when the protagonist is so boring and unappealing.
>>3766830Well MAPPA deserves to sink for not animating all the way to the bomb arc, the objectively best part of the series. No one cares about Katanaman, they want the fiends and Reze.
>>3766830is it for sure there wont be bomb devil arc i was really hoping they would be able to fit that in the 5 episodes they have left
>>3766823Dropped it after 3 episodes
Akimeno btfo Akiangel in pixiv tags. Coping?
>>3766888Who cares, the anime and part 2 manga are flopping in moonland and no one will be interested in the series by next year
>>3766888>using pixiv as a metricAkiten is more popular on there than Akiden, which is not the case on twitter. Pixiv is a dead site only used by westerners and talentless nips.>>3766900Also this.
>Console warring about shipsYorubros would never stoop that low.
>3766888>3766905You need to go back to /a/ NOW!
>>3766870Oof. What went wrong (seriously)?
>>3766909hack director that hates the medium he's working on
>>3766888I see way more Akiten art on twitter than Akimeno and Angel isn't even introduced in the anime yetAlso Denji x Power is the most popular ship on pixiv whereas on twitter no one cares about it
>>3766888why are you keeping track of this?
>>3766909I couldn't bear shitty 3d cg and then voice actors which MAPPA chose just killed the whole experience to me. Isn't it the first time voice acting for the guy who voiced Denji? I couldn't find any other roles done by him. Like, what the hell? You just took a fresh new guy to voice a main character for popular series? Aki sounds way too old and generic. And I won't mention Makima..Overall, the anime was giving more of a dull feeling, unlike the manga, there's something off with the pacing too.
I wonder if Mappa put so much care into Aki in hopes he'd have a Gojo tier explosion
>>3766996didn't the voice actors mention that they were given little direction, just to give it less of an anime feel?
>>3767002I didn't knew that, but either way it turned out pretty bad IMHO.
>>3766997They put care into Aki? He's way less cute, charming, or good looking in the anime.
>>3766996>Aki sounds way too oldTo be fair he also looks older now and kinda weird. MAPPA also didn't adapt cute and small innocent teen Aki from the flashback (huh I wonder why hmmmm).Overall the characters feel different in the anime.
>>3765754Beam is so cute!
>>3767009>MAPPA took the most sympathetic character in the manga and made him a bland block of wood I can't bring myself to care about him and he was my favorite character in the manga. I think I understand what Makimafags are going through
>>3767008That nip thought he looks particularly pretty in the anime, which isn't too hard given Fujimoto's style in part 1. That domestic scene felt like trying to push his husbando potential
>>3766996I find very curious how every dub bar japanese one gave Makima a commanding grown woman voice instead of a 14yo cutesy one. It's like anyone with common sense knows she needs to sound lower because of her design alone and especially because of her role.
The way an adaptation managed to kill my interest in a series instead of keeping me watching is a great achievement from MAPPA. I hope they drop CSM after selling all Pochita merch and a new studio remakes it in some years from now.
https://files.catbox.moe/5uk2my.mp4As expected, new ED is all Aki/Himeno shilling, but Aki is pretty there at least
>>3767242Honestly I'm mad that they turned Angel into a child so they can push their ship more
>>3767242Aki is always pretty~
>>3767242How the hell did the ed leak? This kind of dramatic emo ed is funny and would be out of place if the anime wasn't so up it's own ass
>>3767242>groomeno death flag: the edbravo mappa
Image limit is achieved, do we make a new thread?Raped dead inside Aki from ED is waiting to be posted
