    Most forms of criticism I’ve seen:

    “Porn parody”

    “Bad cosplay” 

    “He’s black” (racism) 

    “Bad writers” 

    “Blasphemy” (religious fanatics)


    The last one is quite fun to read.

    Has anyone seen the show? Is it any good?

    “He’s black” (racism)

    Isn't he supposed to be blue? I thought he was supposed to be blue.

    Anyway I haven't seen it either. This is the first I am hearing of it.

    **** Spoilers ahead ****

    He is blue but gives himself the body of a black man to make his current love interest (who is black) more comfortable. The show, in general, is very much about racism with themes of questionable morality and the attempt to acquire God-like power. It is well written. Nothing like what I expected having seen the movie and being unfamiliar with the original source material.
