Holy Cross Tortoise Beetle - Aspidomorpha sanctaecrucis
The Holy Cross Tortoise Beetle, Aspidomorpha sanctaecrucis (Coleoptera - Chrysomelidae) is a species of tortoise beetle found in Southeastern Asia.
These beetles live and feed on leaves of Ipomoea fistulosa. Like all tortoise beetles they can pull their cuticle down on to the surface of the leaf which seals them off from any unwanted attention from predators. They get their name because from directly above they look as if they have been crucified.

Every time this post comes around, I have to explain this. 

Watch Dennou Coil, the most underrated anime pretty much ever. 

  • Yes, this is the standard of animation throughout the series. 
  • AND THIS IS A FILLER EPISODE. 
  • It’s basically about kids with what’s essentially Google Glass: The Game. The whole world is affected by this game. Traffic lights, school, anything. 
  • It’s good in the beginning and gets really, really good by the end. 
  • Shows the vulnerabilities of children.
  • Well-written children in general. They fall under some tropes but they don’t suffer from the usual fallacies of writing children into series. 
  • And yeah, the filler episodes are really good. The whole series is worth watching. 

Reblogging as a reminder to myself

 wish this show was longer.

PLEASE WATCH DENNOU COIL IT’S REALLY COOL!!!!!

This is the episode I always think of when I think about how much I love the visuals in Dennou Coil. Still an amazing show that not enough people have seen.

Behold the most disgustingly aggressive display of Americanness

I’m just picturing some dude sitting at the dinner table, his assault rifles propped up in the other chairs
"Can you pass the salad, Mom?" he asks the AK-47, but she doesn’t pass the salad
She never passes the salad
