It keeps on rising.
I'm a pleb that started with the anime and doesn't read old threads. What do manga readers think about White? I'm liking her character so far and was very surprised to learn that she's an anime original.

That sentiment's been echoed a lot here recently. She as a character and the anime original plotline have almost been too good to be true, and some anons seem to be waiting for the other shoe to drop and Bones to go off the rails, but others trust the director's vision and believe she's going to do a good job.
I'm in the latter camp personally. I haven't seen anything this well-done and enjoyable for several years, and I'm having a hell of a lot of fun on the ride.
Baby, I'm tryin'.
Huh, good to know that she's being well-received by some here. I was expecting there to be a lot of backlash surrounding her since anime-original content almost always turns out to be terrible; hopefully that won't be the case here. Probably helps that the original creator had a hand in developing her character.
Download's done, time to check this out.
I think the appeal is that she's just normal girl, not a tsundere or any kind of forced personality trait (I personally like it when KugiRie gets to play against type). Plus, she hasn't forced her way into the story like some Scrappy Doo character; she exists in the periphery and her relationship with Leo is established on and off screen. The relationship feels natural: he visits her time to time and they hit it off. I can believe Leo would develop a crush on a girl just because she's cute and is nice to him. She's also adding plot to a series that would be episodic otherwise.
The only thing that might even count as backlash are people disappointed that scenes were cut out in order to fit the original stuff in, but that isn't against her as a character or the content itself. It's a shame, but honestly inserting pieces of the original material here and there is the right way to go about this.
Mostly Doug and Deldro. Anime version made her part better, her interaction with Leo was better too.
He was taken hostage. She was pretty much only focused on Brody and Hammer. Off the top of my head they didn't talk about anything significant other than how she made the perfect boyfriend.
This pretty much. It's better than a show going off the rails with Bones original bullshit halfway through at least. I'm assuming they're using this so they can give the series an story arc to end on instead of it all being episodic.
i love this shit, it gives me the same feelings i had watchig men in black as a kid, it really have that late 90's early 00's action movie vibe, which makes it weirdly nostalgic
Yeah, she did, but all she really did was tell him about what she did to BrodyHummer. The romance talk was all brand-new stuff for the anime, and they really improved that scene in every way if you ask me. Everything that was added in was staggeringly on-point, not only for Aligula's character and Leo's state of mind and worries at that time but with a lot of thematic relevance to both the framework of this ep's story and the Howaito and Leo plotline going forward.
I know I'm probably going to get crucified for saying this, but the review of it on ANN had a pretty well thought-out analysis of the themes in this episode. Worth checking out.
It's true. There are plenty of imagesets that start out with BL images and then in the middle there will be stuff like Leo and Howaito riding tandem on his scooter or keyhole sweater Chain.
Fujoshi don't hate het and spurn every boy-girl pairing, you know. Plus a lot of Kekkai fans seem to be quite well-rounded in general.
To be fair, she doesn't get much to do in the manga either, although i had hopes the anime would adapt more of the stories which she contributes more.
On another note, does BONES typically do the whole drama CD thing? They've got a stellar cast here and the setting allows them to pretty much do whatever they want. It'd be a wasted opportunity if they didn't at least attempt to milk it that way a little. I for one want see how White and Leo were like between "I'm a ghost, let's be friends" to them already getting along swimmingly or what Femt does in his boredom (does he drag Aligula and Despair-kun along?). Basically stuff that wouldn't fit in the show.
It's CHO lovely!
Some Nightow-penned audio drama tracks would be fantastic. I'd love some stuff that probably isn't going to be in the anime, like Leo with KK's sons, or original stuff like how the other Libra members first met.
I think someone would have to be really determined to hate the original material if they didn't find the last couple minutes of ep 5 cute. I mean Leo asked a girl out and snuck her out of the hospital. That's cute as hell.
Let us pray and offer a sacrifice of Hellboy action figures and a case of Blue Moon to to the powers that be to make it so.
Episode 7 E-den of Master Fighters will be funny as hell in the beginning. Zappu-san showing his true nature again
I wonder if the preview for the 7th episode will show or not the true story with Zapp in that episode or will make everyone think that he's
Makes sense I think. Assuming they're going in order and won't skip back to do Gilbert or something(though they are backtracking for Fight Club for some reason), Chain's chapter is the only major thing it would really make sense to adapt.
One with growing guy was okay, but it's another "Leo is nice" episode just like the burger one we're getting. Same with gardening club, don't think they'll do another Klaus.
If it's the one with Zed, Zapp, and Leo trying to find lunch, I'll be a bit disappointed but could accept it.
I fucking loved Chain possible, was waiting for her to do something the whole manga.
I mean she beat somebody who made a pact with one of the kings for powers, how much better can we get?And that ending of course.
Ah, nice. I personally would have done gardening club as the last Klaus focused episode, but that one was still good. Plus hyped vampires more, which may have to do with the ending arc.
Even funnier is the implication that he's pulled that same shit so many times that nobody, even Leo who hasn't been in Libra that long, believes him any more. Except Klaus, because he's perfect.
Also, why didn't any of you anons tell me Twins was so damn funny? I was expecting a ho-hum throwaway 80s comedy with AHNULD, but instead I'm losing my shit over here.
>You have no respect for logic.
>But he has an axe!
I can see how this movie would have appealed to the KS creators' sense of humor.
I sure hope they capture that moment where Klaus hands that bouncer his card, japanese business man style.
Though I'm guessing the episode will also have a lot of HWAITO and KoD shenanigans.
It doesn't seem like the sort of plot that could sustain an entire episode on its own.
Ye, the Doug Hammer episode was like more than half a volume in the manga and they managed to adapt it in 16 minutes or so without omitting much.
The e-den fighters could be done in even less, depending on how long they want to drag the fights for. In the manga it's played out realistically, Klaus just destroying everyone, people barely even manage to grasp the situation, which makes sense because he's the leader of Libra and so on.
Is there a "do it for Shawty" board yet?
And it still might have worked out, except Aligula has no gaydar.
It looks like they were an item. Unless she's just really good with Photoshop.
Plus it looks like she had short hair when that photo was taken, so they were together for a while. Awwwww.
How did they meet initially, I wonder? Did she take out the world's most hilarious personal ad?
