THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Geez that was creepy. The butterfly, the dog, the mood, the OST. This was only 5 minutes though...

I wonder why this was censored though. Too much gore? Maybe BDs will remove that shadow. This was creepy though: http://imgur.com/cwngn0f

OP and ED were really dark.

It begins. I can only say for this ep. because it's only 4 mins. short.

BD and DVD will include uncensored ver. of the whole series. Yeah, I think it was gore (it does say "shocking contents that cannot be broadcasted".

Edit: Uncensored ver. of eps.1 to 3 will be released early through March issue of Earth Star (releasing February 12, 2014).

I guess I shouldn't have expected it to follow the manga to a T when it's only 3 minutes long.

Damn they censored it. :(

Just realised that the most anticipated horror show of 2014 is a 5min ep show. Dropped.

So not only this is a 5 minute anime, but it is also censored. That sucks. I don't understand why they have to censor EVERYTHING: a few years ago they aired on tv Elfen lied or Gantz uncut, instead now you have to buy the BD if you want to see anime with uncensored gore....

Too short and censored (could of at least shown a little, like fuck me). Good thing I came in here with zero expectations when it was announced for 5 mins.

I'm laughing at anybody who defended this manga, telling me that it's more than just shitty fan service, and then go right around and make a big deal that it's censored.

Hmm.. it's almost as if the only appeal this had for people is the promise of gore fan service...

This show sucks, but the funny part is it that was a 1:1 adaptation of the manga.

They didn't change or shorten anything. They just upscaled the manga panels, added water colors and censored the blood.

I'd like to reiterate that Pupa doesn't suck because of censoring or the length.

The first 4 minute episode covered the entire first chapter of the manga.

That's how shallow it is. The manga sucks. It isn't Deens fault the manga has no content other than gore porn.

Delaying the anime a whole season wasn't enough...

reducing the episode duration to 5 minutes wasn't enough...

so you fuck it over with such absurd level of censorship?!! FUCK YOU!!

Wait for BD/DVD if you want uncensored. This series isn't airing on AT-X, it's obvious that it's going to be censored.

Better than nothing i guess ? But it would've been way better if they would've released like 2 or 3 OVAs with full lenght (25 mins) and a lot of gore :(

Too bad , still enjoyed it compared to other shorts.

I heard that this series at first was posticipated because there was no channel that wanted to air this,because of his contents. So why they didn't aired it on AT-X?

Lol. Yeah, this was pretty bad. And to think that it's only the first episode. Hasn't even gotten to the 'eating her brother's flesh' scenes.

Except for cutting out the prologue, the dialogue in between so the scenes didn't feel so disjointed (though they still are), and the scene with the dad that took up around half the chapter.
Yes exactly like the manga nothing cut.

This anime is awful but to say that isn't true and to see that comment just bothered me...

I wasn't expecting much to begin with but that's still a weak first episode. The monster design looks generic.

I was expecting this, but the 5 minute time constraint was and is my biggest turn off. I WANTED something like this. I WANTED something completely out there. The time constraint though... It ruined everything. Just air longer eps made into an OVA, remove the censors, an I'm happy. That's not happening though.

I know right?? If there's anything to get mad about in this world, it's the fact that shows depicting school-children getting mercilessly and pointlessly tortured with little to no other purpose or plot, are censored!

Can't we have children being mutilated in pure, unrefined, uncensored gratuitousness? Is that really too much to ask for? Fuck it makes me so mad!

Really, these producers are like, sick fucks man. Good thing there are more sane people like you here, who agree that the only thing wrong with this show is that the pointless violence isn't explicit enough and doesn't last long enough!

The short length doesn't come off as too much of a surprise since many manga published by Comic Earth Star have been adapted into short series like Teekyu or Mangirl. Even if DEEN' staff wanted to make a full-length series they still have to abide to the restrictions set by the production comitee and work with the funds given to them.

Having five minute episodes is pretty much like having trailers for each chapter. I'm not sure why they decided to air it when it's only five heavily-censored minutes?
Either way, I plan to watch until the end, but. I'm disappointed in the studio for how they decided to approach this. Hopefully they have good reasons for it though.

Way too short, not even 5 minutes, freaking 4:01. I barely registered anything by the time the credits played. The length of this anime will be it's downfall.

Also where are you guys reading the full manga? I heard only the first two volumes were translated out of five...

Why are your posts so darn good?

Here I'll give my take on it. When I first seen this show was a horror, I got excited and meaning that I like psychological horror genres. Months back when we all seen this show get postpone, I went and read the manga. Knowing nothing about it and to my surprise...What I read and seen was absolutely disgusting and I'm not even talking about the incest. Who ever likes this manga/show is a sick bastard.

This is all I have to say about Pupa - http://i.imgur.com/QEldkIF.jpg

Guess I'll wait for it to finish airing and marathon it as a 48 minute movie, this isn't even worth taking up my watching/hold list for 12 weeks.
