    There's so, so much more to Revy than just her "I'm an aggressive, masculine outcast" trope, though. That's her personality, annoying as it sometimes can be, but that very personality is deliberately...

    Well, the artist is a former hentai mangaka so there's bound to be at least some sexualized scenes every now and then. :P

    Not as much as there used to be, though. Shueisha has its standards.

    Read the manga, the movie only really covers the first quarter of it and makes some pretty drastic changes to what it is supposed to be like. It's pretty to look at, but it's not much else than a...

    The funny thing is that the page I posted was from chapter 7 of Haikyuu, and the art has only gotten better from that point on. So we really shouldn't judge a new manga by its art in the first, say,...
