I loved Goblin Slayer as well. Although I feel like comparing it to Kimetsu is like apples to oranges in a way. They are great in their own lanes.

I agree apples and oranges. Both shows are excellent for their own thing. For instance I like the demon slayers story. It’s really good and super interesting but I liked the goblin slayers characters more. Though as stated both are excellent shows.

With that being said, last week's episode broke the internet and was trending on twitter, so the potential should be there for the pops?

For a starting four, its pretty obvious to go with Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Nezuko, and Inosuke (boar head)

I've been hearing a lot of chatter about this anime. It peaked my interest and I'm going to go check it out.

Completely worth it! great story, compelling characters and pretty animation.

My theory is know about it before any pops drop so I don't have to pay reseller prices later on.

Lol, not sure how reliable that would be considering the abundance of anime series out there. Even if you knew about all of them, unless you watched them... would that be enough for you to buy the figures?

Ah, yes...excellent! Basically a savings plan! =D> lol

It is true that if I had been watching My Hero Academia a bit sooner, I would have a few (currently) out-of-reach figures in my collection... :-k

Well typically Funko announces a new line ahead of time with a few weeks to months before the line starts showing up in stores. My theory is to watch the anime at that time and see if i like it. If I don't like the series then there is no reason to get the pops but if I do like the series, there is a high probability I'll want the pops. There are a decent amount of anime pops but most are from existing lines and they don't release new lines very often, in my opinion.

Totally agree! I started MHA a bit too late and now I am going to have to pay for it with Tenya and GITD All Might. They are worth it to me though so it's fine but think of all the money i could have saved.

Agreed


So I have watched the first 3-4 episodes and love the Anime style, read a bunch of the Manga at work but guess they noticed cause all manga sites are now blocked ugh.

Digging it and yes already want pops.

I'd love to see how they design Inosuke in pop form.
That is a good starting line and if they did well I'd love to see them branch out into a few of the other Demon Slayers like miss Butterfly girl and Tanjiro's mentor. I'd also like to see some of the demons since most of them have unique designs.

I was thinking maybe they can make itwhere he is wearing the boar mask,but the mask is also removable so you can see his face as well.

My response to Episode 21
Spoiler: show
I I felt sympathy for Rui but if Nezuko and the doctor demon can control their human eating urges, then he could have too. So I feel bad that he went through what he went through but that doesn't give him any excuses to do what he did.

I love that Tanjiro still has empathy and hasn't allowed the death of his family to turn him completely to vengeance. He's a great character.

Giyu Tomioka is still super cool in my book and I want to see more of him. Butterfly girl seems to be creepy and I think she has something up with her but I want to see more.

I don't know if they said how long it had been since the beginning of the anime and I just missed it but hearing Giyu remember Tanjiro and Nezuko from 2 years ago surprised me. I know Tanjiro's training lasted awhile but I was thinking closer to a year.

Looking forward to what happens next episode and how Nezuko gets out of it.

my question for you is if they make that pop. Should it have a bobblehead? I think her character alone already has some great pop variants.

With that being said, last week's episode broke the internet and was trending on twitter, so the potential should be there for the pops?

For a starting four, its pretty obvious to go with Tanjiro, Zenitsu, Nezuko, and Inosuke (boar head)

I was told that this show is a must see. After i plow through shield hero im going to pull it up


Shield hero was really good. I can’t wait for more of that series. You’ll definitely like this one too


its bee. A good summer for anime. Shield hero, demon slayer, dr stone. Now we just need some pops for these.

Honestly really liking demon slayer. Havent even had to convince the wife to watch them. She keeps checking to see if the new episode is out yet. It's great.

Lol, not sure how reliable that would be considering the abundance of anime series out there. Even if you knew about all of them, unless you watched them... would that be enough for you to buy the figures?


Well typically Funko announces a new line ahead of time with a few weeks to months before the line starts showing up in stores. My theory is to watch the anime at that time and see if i like it. If I don't like the series then there is no reason to get the pops but if I do like the series, there is a high probability I'll want the pops. There are a decent amount of anime pops but most are from existing lines and they don't release new lines very often, in my opinion.


Very good point!


I agree with this wholeheartedly, perfect example was like this:
https://www.funko.com/blog/article/comi ... -end-pop-s

I had no idea what seraph of the end was until I looked it up and it was from the same creators of attack on titan as the storyline was different except with vampires. Not sure if many would enjoy but I personally did and as a rule of thumb, I got the exclusives first and then I got the commons

I'd love to see how they design Inosuke in pop form.
That is a good starting line and if they did well I'd love to see them branch out into a few of the other Demon Slayers like miss Butterfly girl and Tanjiro's mentor. I'd also like to see some of the demons since most of them have unique designs.

I was thinking maybe they can make itwhere he is wearing the boar mask,but the mask is also removable so you can see his face as well.


That’d be really cool feature. I’d love to see that.


I think it would be a first full on pull of mask

Just finished this weeks (Ep 21)
My thoughts:
Spoiler: show
I don’t really care for rui..lol sorry

butt!! I really appreciate tanjiro as a person who feels empathy after most of his battles :love2:

I’m SO in love with the butterfly slayer!
Lol overall nice wrapped up to the forest journey. Left us on a cliffhanger tho!!


My response to Episode 21
Spoiler: show
I I felt sympathy for Rui but if Nezuko and the doctor demon can control their human eating urges, then he could have too. So I feel bad that he went through what he went through but that doesn't give him any excuses to do what he did.

I love that Tanjiro still has empathy and hasn't allowed the death of his family to turn him completely to vengeance. He's a great character.

Giyu Tomioka is still super cool in my book and I want to see more of him. Butterfly girl seems to be creepy and I think she has something up with her but I want to see more.

I don't know if they said how long it had been since the beginning of the anime and I just missed it but hearing Giyu remember Tanjiro and Nezuko from 2 years ago surprised me. I know Tanjiro's training lasted awhile but I was thinking closer to a year.

Looking forward to what happens next episode and how Nezuko gets out of it.


Spoiler: show
So in regards to Rui, I don't think as a child being turned into a demon and not having any guidance, I highly doubt he would be able to control his eating urges. The doctor demon was already older and probably had more handle on the situation and nezuko had tanjiro and his master and Giyu. Not that it's an excuse for him, but I do sympathize with him and all the other demons. But its like all evil baddies, they never truly start as evil, just circumstances that were beyond their control made them that way.

I really want to see more of the Giyu and Tanjiro communication. I feel like aside from being senpai, he's like an older brother to Tanjiro and wants to see him exceed, so much that he sent him to his master to train him. Also, I want Giyu to be the one to explain how to excel past the 10 forms.

They did mention in the beginning that it was about 2 years and change when he was training, which is why I loved the show because the time skip made sense and actually showed the training to get Tanjiro where he is today.

The next episode is going to be so dope because you get to meet the Hashiras and it looks like they will touch on how Tanjiro carrying a demon around will affect the corps. I wanna how the master feels about everything.

With anime pops, it's almost a rule of thumb not to ignore the commons. The "i'll get it later" approach will come back to bite your wallet lol. That's what happened to me with Tenya from MHA and Spike from Cowboy Bebop.
