Pretty certain "your mileage may vary" existed as a phrase before TV Tropes named something after it. I've been using it since before I read it, anyway, might've picked it up from someone who read it there before I did.
And I don't know why you're so caught up on the act of hitting, rather than the severity. I'm not throwing jaw-breaking haymakers, I'm basically firmly tapping someone on the arm with my fist.
Likewise, he may be slapping/chopping her, but it's pretty clear that exactly 0 effort is being put into trying to make it hurt. They're light actions.
You just see a moe moe kyuuun~ waifu being smacked and squeaking, and it triggers the white knight in you. Calm the fuck down little dude, it is gonna be OK. I promise.

"Your mileage may vary" is a term from gasoline commercials that has entered the lexicon as an easy cliché to be used when stating that individual experiences with particular stimuli are the result of numerous variables, and it can be depended upon that all people who go through those stimuli will have the same reaction to it. TV Tropes did not invent it, though I suppose they may have popularized it. You may as well get mad at people for quoting TV Tropes when they call someone a Mary Sue.
>> No. 79519
I've heard that phrase used since I was in grade school, it's been around for decades
>> No. 79533
I have never heard this phrase before the advent of TVTropes because I live in You Kay.

I generally seem to get a whole lot of orphaned punchlines and context-free references from US pop culture lately.

the art looks pretty nice, but I hope I'm not the only one who thinks Benedict Cumberbatch is pretty ugly and can't understand why he has so many fangirls am I? hell, the guy who played Loki isn't this popular and I think even he's better looking than him
>> No. 79541

No I agree, the Cumberbatch is pretty fug. This is actually part of why I like his Sherlock, he's an ugly, unattractive, personally repellent asshole hopped up on drugs most of the time.

Don't ask me to account for his fangirls, though.

I think he has nice eyes, but that's about it. Actually to be honest, I don't really find much about that show to be appealing.

If you're an arrogant and intelligent man in fiction, real life girls will always want the d. Look how popular Rodney McKay and House are, despite the middling attractiveness of their actors (though Hugh Laurie has against all odds has somehow become attractive as he ages.)

And yet if you're arrogant and intelligent in real life, no one will ever touch you, unless you're, like, so blindingly hot girls can overlook the rest. Also if you're rich, and then a certain caliber of girl would touch you even if you were ugly and dumb and modest.
>> No. 79555
It's a fairly solid adaption so far, seems to be lifted word for word from the show. The little deduction blips don't transfer well into manga, which is a shame, because they were some of my favorite bits from the show.

Will never understand manga's fascination with taking Benedict Cumberbatch, David Bowie, and other people who are already bishounen and making them even more pretty, though.

Had a very interesting conversation with my brother today about why guitars come out of people's heads and how that relates to the alien conspiracy to remove all thought and capture the pirate king.

FLCL is pretty much his favorite anime ever.

It's a damn clever show, really. And proof that a kind of stream-of-consciousness narrative can really work.

So I'm reading Birdy the Mighty and I'm left wondering why the hell didn't I start reading this sooner.

I've always seen gifs of the show but I had no idea what was going on so I never watched it.

Yusuke Murata has always been one of the absolute masters of action paneling, imo. He didn't get to flex his skills that much in Eyeshield 21, but there were a few moments that I can remember that just blew my mind.

It's great he's now drawing a series where he can really strut his stuff.
>> No. 79691
Murata is just an amazing artist period, you should see that one spread where he's draws all the Shounen Jump heroes and manages to mimick their original styles almost perfectly
