This week we will be examining artificial limbs in anime.

strange, when I click the link I get a 404 error. But if I go from the homepage to the blog entry it works...

About the entry

a) I think that picture of Mokoto is not a good example for the point you make.
b) The ghost in the shell manga actually acknowledge the problem of a partial artificial body in a side chapter.

You are correct that the major is a full body cyborg which is different than a partial body cyborg. In the first image I reference that she is different and make the distinction between the two types. Edward is a partial, and Makoto is a full. The second image was the only one I could find of a cyborg breaking from using to much force. Ideally it should have been someone like edward or some other partial body cyborg falling apart, but the image of the major was the only one i could find. Also later in the post i reference exactly what your comic describes.

ui, fast response.

The point I'm trying to make is, that you're using a wrong picture for the point your making. I understand that finding right pictures may be difficult, but from a scientific point of view it is better to show no picture than a wrong one. Especially because you use the same character as an example for both cases which leads to internal contradictions.

Just a little nitpicking on my part.

I know I haven't posted anything here for a good long while but www.animescience101.com has been going strong for a good long while. So let me know what you guys think and if you have any topics you'd like me to look into.

Interviews with Monster Girls was one of several monster girl shows to be released this year and the first monster girl I will be examining is Sakie our sexy succubus math teacher. The question is what are pheromones and how they create her powers.

Anime loves vampires from Alucard to Moka, and most recently Hikari. But what is the science behind the myth, is there any part of the vampire that is even slightly realistic. Vampires in Interviews with Monster Girls.

Kyoto Animations hit movie A Silent Voice is about to get a limited American Theatrical release, and deafness places a central role to the plot. the movie does an excellent job potraying deafness and the struggles people with it face. The question then becomes what is the cause of Shoko's deafness, and can gene therapy possibly help some of those struggling with hearing loss?

Some possible topics from recent shows:

"yellow blood cells" in Darling in the FRANXX
"cavorite" in Princess Principal; the anti-gravity metal was first imagined by H.G. Wells
"parallel universes" in Orange and Noein

Violet Evergarden's mechanical limbs and hands reminded me of Luke's replacement arm in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. At least that story was set in a far future. Violet's supple appendages were constructed at a time when typewriters looked like this: http://www.takinganimeseriously.com/...instrument.jpg

Remember Ed Automail but at least that might be justify for In universe Alchemy.

I haven't watched those shows yet, is there enough information on their wiki pages for me to dig into those topics. By the brief description you gave I would go with cavorite being a natural room temperature super conduction and it floats via magentic levetation. I know very little about the physics of parallel universes but I might try at some point.

As to Violet Evergarden, I have seen it and I am working on a post about it right now. Less about busting the science and more about going into the history, current state, and future of artificial limbs.

I did think of Ed's Automail, but I already discussed it some what here
http://www.animescience101.com/cybernetic-limbs/

But that was regard's to the strength of the limb itself and how a super strong limb would impact the rest of the body. There is no explination given in universe as to how it is connected directly to the nervous system something we can't do in the real world just yet.

Probably not for Darling in the Franxx.

I guess I'll just have to watch the show at some point and here is the new post for the week.

Last week I covered deafness in A Silent voice and a possible treatment for Shoko. This week I am covering how you could use A Silent Voice in the classroom. Now I know the obvious choice would be for a unit on bullying, but it can also be used in a science classroom which is where my focus will be.

It'd probably be better to wait until the show ends to get full context. There's still too much we don't know and missing information can ruin a good hypothesis. Especially considering that it can somehow turn pilots into monsters.

Good point and I'll ad Darling in the Franxx to the watch list.

How does alchemy work in #fullmetalalchemist and how does seeing the gate change how an alchemist's alchemy work? Time to learn some #anime chemisty?
