During April Fools, a fan animator collaborated with a Saber fan Twitter user (@Saber_Says) to create a virtual youtuber version of Saber / セイバー from the Fate series. The animation is smoothly cute and along with the British English voice acting. But, it’s unfortunately a April Fools prank and isn’t officially licensed. Although, the fake channel did grow 14,000+ subscribers. Here’s the introductory video.

Shu Tsukiyama - A Gourmet’s Chase for a Taste of Real Friendship (Tokyo Ghoul)

Shu Tsukiyama art from Tokyo Ghoul:re

“Kaneki…would never forget about me. We shall spend time together again..!! Kaneki!! Let little Hinami, Banjo, and his underlings be there too!! We’ll make up for lost time!!”

One of the most important things to get through life is close friendships. Yet we sometimes forget how fragile they can be when life hits you with a big whammy.

The character I’m talking about is Shu Tsukiyama – a major supporting character who was once an enemy to main character Ken Kaneki, but became one of his most vocal supporters and allies. Tsukiyama was once known as the Gourmet, as he always feasted on humans that seemed fancy and exquisite to eat. One day, he became enamored at Kaneki’s hybrid nature (being both half-human and Ghoul) and planned to eat him. Tsukiyama ends up getting killed at the hands at Touka Kirishima for his interest in Kaneki. He was later revealed to be alive as he ate parts of himself to regenerate his body completely.

Tsukiyama joins a rescue attempt to save Kaneki from the Ghoul organization Aogiri Tree and later …continue reading
