Vik and I have been reading the manga because who knows when in the fuck the 2nd season of the anime is coming out. We still haven't finished yet so no spoilers in the comments, you muffins!

The story keeps you guessing, just when you think it will pull a cliche it doesn't, I can't predict much of anything, and hot damn if that isn't exciting. 

Attack on Titan is like a delicious Boston cream pie with thick cherry topping and the richest of sponge cake, embedded with hundreds of rusted sewing needles all named Eren. 

That's right. My only problem - and I mean THE ONLY GODDAMN PROBLEM that I have with the entire series 
is the whining
violent
screaming
infantile
unthinking
impulsive
useless
destructive
disgusting little twat Eren. 

Sometimes I walk away from the screen because I get so mad at him getting all the praise and adoration, all while making this pissy little hamster face of uncontrolled, undisciplined anger. I only return because I hate not knowing what's going to happen to everyone else. 

I swear to god this little shit has two modes - screaming "I WILL KILL YOU ALL" while flailing like a Magicarp with IBS right before getting his ass whooped, and burning in silent impotent rage right before the flailing starts. 

I get that he was traumatized, but SO WAS EVERYONE ELSE! He has no excuse to act like this! He is just a stubborn little turd who is putting the safety of everyone around him in danger with his flippant screaming!

Here's the thing - we have all seen this exact character a thousand times before in anime. Why does he bother me so much here? 

It's because ALL THE OTHER CHARACTERS ARE SO WELL WRITTEN. They are smart, authentic, flawed but relatable people who grow and develop. The author knows how to write characters! He knows how to do arcs and give us people we can easily love. Why did he fail so hard with the main one???

Eren doesn't develop. He doesn't learn. He never ages beyond a tantruming toddler and for some insane reason he is in the forefront, getting all the cool maguffins, and has all the coolest companions to endlessly make excuses for his horrible behavior. 

The only silver linings are that 1. he's not constantly in the camera, and 2. the characters who are not his Stockholm Syndrome'd nannies are often pointing out what a useless shit he is. The moment where Rivaille literately punched his teeth out for 45 glorious seconds was the absolute highlight of the series for me. 

Christ I hate this little bastard. Why can't Mikasa or Armin have the cool powers? Actually, it would make significantly more sense to write Eren out of the story all together and give all the cool shit to Armin.

How awesome would THAT be? Little blonde sickly boy who is not only a brilliant strategist but also a badass in a way he had no way of knowing, chilling and fighting Titans with his amazing Amazon goddess best friend? I want that show, gimme THAT show. 

(BTW I'm not actually taking any of this seriously. I'm fun-ranting here.)

And thus begins the long monologue. I thought it would be better and more respectful to handle the scene this way (hearing Corelle's thoughts) rather than showing any kind of gore. We're going to get enough gore and violence later on in the series - putting it here wouldn't be tactful, imho.

Thank you ExplosiveGlaucoma for help with her arm!

Please please please tell me this will be catching on in other countries. This is rad as hell. 

Hey guys. 

Vik and I are planning on getting tattoos this year. I'm really into abstract and geometrical tats and am looking to do full sleeves. I like the idea of not having a concrete image on my skin, something that would fuck with the perspective of my shape. I'm not the biggest fan of bright colors, or having any color at all, actually. 

I was really into these tenticle tats drawn on Sour-Purple 's Night Vale fanart, shown here:
A Cecilos rundown 2 by Sour-Purple  Re-education by Sour-Purple   A Cecilos rundown 5 by Sour-Purple
 
After failing to recreate her examples myself (I'll need to wait until I get home to do it digitally), I started looking up other large abstract and geometrical tats. 

Here are some super cool ones I found: 

Skeleton trees

Fukkin' perminant bruise

Geometric leg tat awesomeness

Full-back and single sleeve - simple and amazing

Beautiful single sleeve

Hello.
I was born in South Candyland under the rule of Queen Frosting. I was raised in a strict Necronomic household by Nigerian parents who died in a freak child-rearing accident that left me alone and homeless at the tender age of thirty-four. After traveling Asia via balloon and sniping those FUCKING MONGOLIAN FUCKERS for ice cream money I started drawing cartoons about a homosexual super villain with a debilitating spinal disease.

I'm allergic to kiwi fruit.

The other volumes haven't been made yet. They are all written out and planned for, but I haven't drawn them yet. I've just gotten started with the series.
