As cool of an arc it was, Yukimura's final battle with Shogun is hard to watch because of all the axe killings ;;;
Sharp weapons always made me squirmy and Yoshi went all out with how realistic Shogun's sloppy slices would hurt the others. Heads getting just part of an ear cut off, that one traitor monkey's imperfect cut, even Yukimura's stab and being held up by the stick was like AAAAAAAAAAAAA.
I still feel this way about Kurojaki VS Akame with the sickle, Hayato's death, and Orion's finishing attack on Monsoon too. ~.~

..BUT DOGS CUTTING WITH THEIR FANGS ARE OK. Weird brain :tfw_sirius2:

I always struggle to remember which of the doberman assassins is Thunder and which one is Lecter. :thunder: :lecter:

I've used their smilies here to remind me for the hundredth time, but I can guarantee you that I will have forgotten again in about an hour's time. :yama1:

The dog fighting arcs/characters never really bothered me since they were so fantastical, yet I shudder at the (Pit Bull) fight writeups in my vintage dog books. :THOT:

Possibly because axes/sickles etc are human. We see them go in and our monkey brain goes 'that could happen to me!' while fangs don't have the same strong effect(?)
Yukimura's arc was probably the goriest one tbh

I cannot stand Silverthepuppy's Ginga fan work. There is no plot and no actual content, but he constantly amps it up like he's God's gift to the fandom. Really can't understand how he still has fans.
But if you point the story having anything related to Ginga out, he'll scream that it's not ginga anymore'
Bruh stop

I'm really not too interested in a lot of ginga fanwork actually. I'm too much of a picky bitch I guess.

I never was a fan of him even waaaaaaaaaaay back in the day and watched all of his content to see what everyone was talking about. And normally I like bad little kid ms paint animations with characters that are just Weed recolored with green fur lol
I guess it was alright for the time but it didn't age well and all I hear is that it's going to be rebooted but nothing really to show for it?

Dunno if he still goes after green Weed ocs but my main peeve with him is how crappy and stuck up his attitude is towards his fans :S I don't know how such rude people can always keep a fanbase. A lot of really popular ginga fan artists seem to be absolutely hateful and toxic to their fans or in general :( like I never liked nekonotaishou either, and they're still very popular despite me seeing them all the time in the 2010s going after users for "not being original enough", (some ocs they were hating on for looking too much like a Ginga character, they themselves had a oc exactly like that..) or they thought the art was unrealistic or ugly.
Some users they even stalked and made literal pages of hate + snark art towards them on livejournal for years just because they thought their Ginga fan comic was stupid and ugly looking despite the user trying to improve and doing some of the changes they demanded they do. Disgusting. Sometimes they could give good constructive criticism but usually it was just "everything looks deformed!" with no mention of how to fix it or stupid comments like "their stupid face marking looks like birdshit lol" and none of that is remotely a constructive crit.
