Took a look at this T-shirt and couldn't help but to notice the similarity to a digestive tract:


First layer is the mouth; second layer bypasses the lungs, that's also why it's windy.
Third layer is the esophagus, fourth layer is the stomach including some acid.
Fifth layer has all the enzymes turning everything into goo and the sixth layer is when everything finally loses its form.

It is said only white whistles and sweet corn ever reach the seventh layer intact.

Bahahahaha oh man, I really like this interpretation. It would kind of kick rear end if the Abyss turned out to be the digestive system of some Darkest Dungeon-style planetary eldritch horror.

That's a great metaphor. Until now I was thinking of it as a kind of uterine and dionysian thing, given the association with Riko's search for her mother.

On chapter 35 and this has been one horrific emotional rollercoaster.

Picked volumes 4-6 and the anthology up from customs today. Vol 1-3 are still MIA.

Found neat stuff and remembered other stuff.

-Belchero is actually the orphanage director's name.

-Remember the twins at the museum, one later to be shown rotting while the other one talks to her?
There is a second page.
It's just black panels, so here's the missing dialog:

Menae posted:

Hey, Sherumi...

I wonder if The Immovable will come again.
Huh... how long ago was the last time anyway?

Sherumi...?

....

Even though we are twins...
why can't we go together?

But we'll know soon enough
Because we are twins

Hey...

...

Sherumi was also mispelled as Shurumi on the nametag in the online version of ch. 42.

-Volume 6 arranges the chapters as followed:
Special Chapter 1: Reg
Chapter 39
Menae and Shurumi at the museum
Chapters 40-42
Special Chapters 2&3: Mio; Jiruo
Menae having her monologue
The last four pages from chapter 42 when Reg finds the nametags, starting with Shurumi's.

-The island actually has a spiral shape.

-Reg's description of Nanachi's anatomy, short version:
Fluffy and good-smelling all over.

-e-
-Riko has experienced all the curses from layer 1 to 5.
As she said, you have to try it once, you don't know if you ever get a chance again.

I thought all the references to Nanachi smelling nice were just Reg being a creeper, but it kept coming up and then other characters mentioned it too.

By now I'm convinced that it was actually an effect of the curse blessing of the abyss.

Mostly enjoyed plowing through this after watching the show but I had a really hard time following the latter part of the Bondrewd arc. Maybe it'll make more sense after a re-read but there was so *much* stuff happening that it felt hard to follow after a while. Still, looking forward to more murderhole.

Nanachi about to ruin some fine cloth


You're going to kick Tama-chan's rear end

This is going to be a good exposition episode with a gut punch at the end for good measure.

Yeah, but the special last episode will almost certainly cover the Mitty + Nanachi backstory which is almost equally horrifying. I feel bad for the show watchers who might assume that Riko's arm injury is as "dark" as it's going to get.

It's a crime to stop the series just as grade-A lovable rear end in a top hat Bondrewd gets introduced.

I think it's pretty great that the show is likely to end on that beautiful field of Eternal Fortunes.

You know, ignoring the part where it's currently 75% parasitic insects and about to be burned to cinders.

so exactly how loving soul scarring is this manga? I ask, because i haven't read it yet. I've read berserk, but I'm probably not in the right frame of mind for anything as bad as berserk, or worse for that matter.

Well, we do see in chapter 42 Mitty potentially coming back, so maybe it wasn't permanent.

The start of volume 4, chapter 25, is where you can continue from.
Reread chapter 26, they stopped in the middle of it.
There are exactly three bonus chapters, called Reg, Mio and Jiruo. Mio was the start of episode 12 with Kiyui getting sick.
