If you think that black are block colored then you have some serious issues in your brain

Meaning a human with black colors like croakroach is impossible to reach , even "ebene" colored black people are not Black

But yeah i hope those monsters will be red and that's it

Also there is no black in shingeki anime , meaning maybe they were all killed like asisans in this show ? At least misaka survived

Someone once gave me this manga saying "hey, read this, it's really cool!" I've never forgiven him. >_< )

Needless to say I won't be watching the anime either, but I just want to say ugh, I'm not looking forward to seeing manga images and anime art popping up at random places! ;_; )

^(Me and cockroaches, we don't go together.)

Yeah, the problem isn't just the colors.

Again, you should be more worried about the reaction from the Western Internet.
Also if something is racist it's racist everywhere, not just the US.

Don't care, the manga is awesome nonetheless. Which is how all non-annoying people will take this. Though the shitstorms will be fun to watch

I don't think it's intentional. The designs are modeled after early human evolution, in particular they closely resemble Homo Habilis. But, I'm hoping this manga isn't given an anime. Not because of potential racism outcries, but because it's an awful manga to begin with.

Those black cockroaches aren't really an issue.
It's only if the cockroaches start wearing big gold chains and singing rap songs that we should be concerned XD

Anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw the female counterpiece to these cockroaches - pussyroaches!

No one would be complaining if they looked like giant mutant cockroaches that happen to be black. But they don't. Other than a few funky looking muscles and their antennas, they look like humans -- black humans. The author even gave them tightly curled hair of the type commonly found on Africans.

Well, it's (probably) not like Utsuro and others are Afro-Americans either. It's always people, who are unrelated that complain most loudly.

Well, I can say for sure black people doesn't look like Terraformers at all, however Homo Erectus people does.
No offense, but saying those roaches look like black people is like saying black people looks like homo erectus (which is pretty much an insult if you ask me). Kekeke.

Spoiler for Homo erekutosu - Jouji - Baraku:

I'm having an irresistible urge to post said photoshopped pictures of terraformers with bling-bling. But considering the current situation, I think I'll just behave myself this time.

Well, either way, the anime has the potential to be quite popular. More than the other pillars from Young Jump - Kingdom and Tokyo Ghoul (my favorite being Kingdom by far). The reason? Well, the plot is the weakest out of the 3 but it has better art and awesome battle scenes.

Also, this might seem unbelieveable, but I never thought of racism even once when reading this manga. Guess things are different here in Brazil?

People are already talking how Terraformars will be the next AoT in terms of cosplay trends, some like it, some doesn't.

Was surprised they actually "announced" it. Personally speaking, the manga has spent all of its course (as of now) explaining nothing, with an excessively large cast (even with all the "happenings") and too long fight scenes. They'd need to trim down a lot of the "useless" bit to make it watchable, IMO.

There are black people in this manga, and they look nothing like the Terraformers.
They look like actual black people.

TFs are supposed to look like neanderthals and other prehistoric sapiens, for a reason that would be spoiler.
