Reason #999 why the cartoon will always be ONE MILLION PERCENT better than that travesty of a movie. They did so much research and put so much detail in you don’t even notice.
Bonus trivia: Toph got a unique martial arts style to match her distinct version of Earthbending (Southern Praying Mantis style, I think) which the creators found out later was (according to legend) invented by a blind woman. Totally a coincidence, but still so *** cool.
(If you don’t watch the show, Toph is both blind from birth and the best *** Earthbender in the world. Also, GO WATCH THE SHOW.)
THIS SHOW WAS AMAZING. I DID NOT WATCH IT FOR A LONG TIME BUT WHEN I DID I WAS COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY. ART. IT WAS ART.
ok i know a good handful of my followers are reborn fandom so i’m gonna promo Amano’s new manga because it’s actually fantastic
it has the same sort of level of ridiculous comedy as reborn did with a similar fails-at life main character… who is also all the sarcasm and jackassery that tsuna never got to be by virtue of remaining a doormat for most of the series
also the lead chick is pretty much the terrifying hybrid child of hibari and nobuchika ginoza from psycho pass which means she’s fantastic and stoic and kicks a lot of ass all over the place
there’s a cool boss dude with an eyepatch and space police and weird alien fights and transformation sequences basically it’s really adorable and also probably badass in the making and hey it’s in full color like every page is in color go read elDlive guys
