TERMINOLOGY CORRECTION: "Kigurumi" has two Us, and no A.

Speaking of which, I'll admit that I watched this show solely for the fursuit (and also someone else choosing to avoid it because of the fursuit), and of the three anime I started this spring, and the two that survived the onslaught of COVID delays, this is my favorite of the season. Sorry, Bakarina, but your harem hijinx, no matter how wholesomely bisexual they are, are nothing compared to the best worst couple that is Shuichi and Clair.

Looks like there is a broken image link after
"I almost don't care that the main guy's defining trait is being hollow and bland when Clair shoves him around with such gusto."

I get
"Sorry, cdn.animenewsnetwork.com/images/cms/this-week-in-anime/160665/twiamich06.png could not be found."

I liked the column. Gleipnir is the most interesting show I'm following right now. I hope it gets the second season I think it has to have. It's tracking the manga very closely, and near as I can tell that's nowhere close to ending either.

when it comes to exploiting the inherent eroticism of cannibalism


Aren't there a bunch of romance story with zombie in it for that very reason? I vaguely recall one anime about that.

The only zombie romance that comes to mind is Sankarea and that didn't touch on cannibalism that i can recall.

It touched on a whole truckload of other messed up topics though.

I think @meiam is talking about Tokyo Ghoul.

Anyway, about Gleipnir it has been a great adaptation so far. Most of the original content has only improved on the manga IMO

First off. I hate you both for remind me glopping exist. (This is a joke)

I always saw Glepinir as “Flowers of Evil but really stupid.”. I wasn’t surprised to see the author’s other works as fanservice manga. Series does feel like somebody who primarily does that kind of stuff trying to write something serious.
