I've had several requests to review and delve into the science of A Centaur's Life, and I've finally gotten around to watching it so let the fun begin. These are just my thoughts on the series before I have fun looking into the science.

A Centaur's Life has a unique take on evolution in that it tries to play it straight for the most part, only changing it enough to allow for six limbs. In the process what does it get right, and wrong about evolution? Can humans really have 6 limbs?

The article is great! I really enjoy it! Please keep up the good work!

But, say, I did learnt once in Physics class back in high school about how the skeleton and muscle structure of the limbs (analogue to mechanical levers) of human and many animals actually sacrified energy efficientcy for freedom of movement. So, hypothetically, if the centaurs, angels, etc. in the show had their inner structures changed, would the energy requirements became actually resonable?

You are correct that the skeleton and muscles act like levers and pulleys. Also there are changes trading energy, range of movement, and stability. Also it is true that birds have changes to make their bodies lighter than expected enabiling them to fly. This doesn't matter in the comparison I made because a 6 limbed bird would still need more calories over a 4 limbed bird. You need to keep the limb comparisons in the same species in able to make the comparision.

If the 6 limbed versions had cellular and other anatomical changes to increase efficiency that's really beyond my ability to speculate on as the show doesn't hint at what those changes could possibly be. Then there is the real posibility that a change to increase efficiency could also cause a negative effect. Case in point, a study just showed that a small population in Malaysia that basically lives on boats their whole lives has a larger spleen that allows them to stay underwater longer. The spleen stores extra red blood cells and helps the blood hold more oxygen. However a larger spleen is more likely to be damaged and a bleeding spleen is very bad for the body.

I do remember that episode quite well, because it was around the time I finally giving up on Fairy Tail. The burning of the stone coliseum reminded me of the video that ISIS posted years ago about a pilot being burned alive in the iron cage. I still have nightmares imagining the poor sap's fat being melted and poured down his black skin.

So maybe Hiro did make the better choice. I don't think I could stomach the aftermath scene had it been potrayed realistically.

Thanks I'm glad you liked the article, and I never saw the video in question but I am glad Hiro didn't go the realistic route.

And don't forget about the uropygial glands!

Thanks I am glad you enjoyed it. I didn't do anything with bird hygiene or the uropygial gland because I didn't think if it, and/or thye aren't shown in A Centaur's Life. If you know of an anime that highlights this then I will be glad to check it out.

One of the greatest mysteries for Boruto viewers to this date is...

Why does Sarada still wear glasses even though she has the Sharingan?

Sadly I have no answer for that one

It was just that their brains were too small for such an aggressive predator, which opened the possibility (later confirmed) that they were being controlled from somewhere else.

Thanks and it's been a while since I saw Macross Fronteir that I either forgot or missed that part sorry. I'll make a note to add some edits to the article.

Sorry I missed last weeks post but I was moving across the country. I'm back with the Centaur's of A Centaur's Life. Enjoy some monster girl biology.
