tenyearsapeasant:

So, our dad wrote a book about the ten years he spent in the countryside of Jiangxi province during the Chinese Cultural Revolution.  It’s a series of small stories in Chinese.  Here we will attempt to translate them into English.  Our goal is to post a new translation every 2 weeks.

If you already read Chinese, you can download the original book at his website.

TOKYOGHOULWEEK (October 6-12, 2014)

Greetings Tokyo Ghoul fans! We will be hosting Tokyo Ghoul Week on October 6-12,2014. It has been a difficult week for the Tokyo Ghoul fandom with the ending of the manga and the anime. We thought the fandom needs a bit of cheering up and what better way to do that than to have a week dedicated to our beloved Tokyo Ghoul. This week is for YOU to show your love for Tokyo Ghoul through your own creations, including (but not limited to!) gifs, graphics, picspams, fanarts, fanfics, cosplays, fanvids, meta, and more!

To help inspire you guys, we have provided you with prompts for each day of the week based on the Major Arcana of the Tarot Cards. We know that not all of you are familiar with Tarot Cards, so to accommodate everyone, there will be two types of prompts.

  • Option A: Simple prompt inspired by the Tarot card
  • Option B: Key words of the specific Tarot Card

You can choose either of the prompts or combine them together. [Hover over the prompts for a quick preview!] 

The prompts were created as a guide. If you have trouble with them, you are free to come up with something of your own! Use the tag #tokyoghoulweek in the first 5 tags of your post to make it easier for us to track and reblog your contribution.

Check the rules before you participate! Feel free to send us a message, If you have any further questions. Encourage your friends to come and join. Help us spread the word by sharing this post or we will eat you raw or turn you into a quinque.

I’ve recently been introduced to tokyo ghoul by a friend and felt like painting the mask of the main character because its design is so good.

Sorry for posting so scarcely as of late; Working full-time with a side job consumes much more time than I thought it would.

EDIT: I never remember to put my signature on pieces. Ever….

Ok, so, I am giant nerd and when I got home tonight I thought it would be great to spend my evening mapping out CN original shows and their life spans from the past 20 years.

Honestly I was curious if there was any pattern in style and content but all I found out was Ed, Edd, and Eddy was a BAMF of a show that lived forever.

i have no idea what this is but the amount of detective work u put into this is really something

Haha, thanks! Although I think Google deserves as much credit as I do.

"It’s Hakushū."

One of the questions that has been plaguing Tokyo Ghoul fans about the last few chapters is, how did Arima know who Kaneki was? One possible answer to this question lies in a scene that lost a crucial detail in the scanlations.

Under the cut I’ll go in-depth on the events of chapter 139, so obviously, here be spoilers.
