Is that the 'rice' cake paddies? Nien Gao?

Really really great stuff! Enjoyed it a lot.
Only thing that was a bit meh to me was
 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
the part when wheelchair girl suddenly was all fine again and killed herself regardless. Was weird to me.

Kill la Kill is forever going to be "2001: Odyssey in Trigger-clothing-battle-school-land" for me.

She had nothing to live for anymore. She had been given a taste of freedom, and then she was locked back in a cage. Also, the only time she felt alive was when Shiki killed her second body. Longing that feeling again, and also having nothing left lead her to commit suicide at the same place where she had caused the deaths of 7 other girls.

Well just throw that in the bin then. I can't be bothered to read obviously.

And I haven't had the time to watch anime. I was too busy with university and drawing and generally being lazy :p

 

Anyway, I'm just dropping this here.

 

(Work in Progress)

PS: I hate when one of my classmates says that my characters look like someone from Fairy Tail. It kinda hurts because first, I haven't read or seen a single chapter or episode of Fairy Tail and second, I worked hard to find my own style.

 

Oh yeah, for those who want a new manga to read, Nobunaga no Chef is quite excellent!

 

Don't worry. As someone who has seen some of Fairy Tail, your style looks unique.

Nope, but that's another traditional food. These are just "yuan."

But she was able to see and walk again! :(
Meh....I guess she just likes to "fly"....should have tried bungee-jumping instead.

She was in a constantly deteriorating state. She didn't regain her ability to walk and see. She had the ability to walk slightly even before Shiki killed her second body. That's what I mean by she had nothing left to live for, that she was stuck back in a cage.

What? I eat those all the time, the stuff you have on the plate looks....different?

 

All the ones I eat are either big round balls (like dango) with filling in it (seasame etc) or small balls with no filling.

 

All of it in a bowl of rice 'wine'. Yummy

Kind of yeah. They're different in texture since "yuan" is usually more firm.

Yeah this variant is more of what the southern peasants would prepare; simple and plain.

....I'm a Southern Peasasnt. I'm literally from one of the most southern peasant areas in China......

 

My family is from a small village (By EU or USA standards, it's a city, by Chinese standards, it's barely on the map) in the very very south of China in Yunnan province. It was literally on the border to like 3 other countries.

 

I was born in the main capital city of Kunming, Yunnan though. ....which is the capital of the southern province of China. 

 

I'm literally as souther peasant as you can get and I have never seen tangyuan that look like that?

Thanks Reddit. I laughed WAY too hard at this.

 

I'm pretty much Hong Kong on that scale. Guess I need a USS ship to come and deliver some Freedom to me tonight.

I will now look down upon you and all of your opinions!

Then it may be specific to the village my family is from; Toisaan.
