    Just how many times has Esdeath been buffed rofl. Introduced as a character with ice powers, and later she can do like half a dozen things including create artificial life, freeze time, regenerate etc.

    What are you expecting? :cat:

    Well, I think that her Teigu's true power is the power of the creature used to make the Teigu. Her ice power is just a part of that creature.

    Also, when your power is very basic and you can exert it with nearly no limit, it can be very flexible. I think it is the same like in JoJo, some Stands are pretty basic but then the protagonists discover a different method to use their abilities, it becomes a new ability as a whole.

    I'm lovin Tamen De Gushi right now. Tan Jiu's artstyle and humor is super similar to that of Old Xian, which is great, since I like her work a lot. Both this and 19 Days are super cute.

    I'm thinking, Chinese art is becoming by far more dedicated in comparison to the Japanese one, I would even say superior.

    Assuming that the mermaids you're referring to are the ones that are top-half woman and bottom half fish (and not the other way around), one can assume that the bottom half fishtail comes equipped with fish anatomy adapted to the human anatomy.

    [​IMG]

    According to this anatomy of a fish, their anus is indeed near their tail. However, this brings about the question: Why are mermaid tails not vertically positioned like a fish?

    So if we take that into consideration, the horizontal tail could instead mean that mermaids are actually not half fish, but half aquatic mammal.

    [​IMG]

    Here's a pic of some of the more well-known aquatic mammals, most of them are whales, but the dolphin is also pictured.
    Manatees and seal/walruses also have horizontal tailfins, hence, we can assume that a mermaid's tail is more similar to an aquatic mammal's tail than a fish's tail.

    As humans are also under the mammal category, it makes biological sense that the tail would be similar to aquatic mammals than fishes (which is another category, different from mammals).

    Hence, let's take a look at the whale anatomy.

    [​IMG]

    As you can notice, the anus of a whale is significantly nearer to the end of the tail than a fish's anus. Here's an underbelly view for comparison.

    [​IMG]

    Thus, they do have the capabilities of pooping, and one can assume that they do indeed poop.

    The question now is:
    Where do they poop?
    Do they have toilets in their underwater kingdom?
    What do they flush their toilets with? (since the toilet would be encased with water, they can't possibly flush it with more water)
    Does their poop have the consistency of diarrhoea or is it solid like the land version women?

    These are some topics you can further explore by yourself, but as for your question:
    tl;dr - yes they have the capabilities to poop, however, no one has ever seen them poop. Which brings the age old question of: "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

    And that my friend, is a mystery in itself.
     
    MrFrank and Blamagenkind like this.

    Anime girls are girls, mermaids are not girls, but rather a hybrid species of human female and aquatic mammal.

    While we are not quite sure if this automatically means that the human female characteristics apply to mermaids, we can assume that each species has a different set of functions that are unique to them. We know for a fact that all living creatures have to excrete waste material, and based on real life examples of mammals, the common mammal method of excretion is through pooping, hence it is a valid assumption that anime characters that are modeled after real life species(es?) will have similar functions.

    However, due to some genres being sci-fi, these species perhaps have evolved beyond needing to excrete waste materials, but since that is a fictional construct, the answer varies from anime to anime. Hence, I assumed that his question was not with regards to anime, but rather to real life mermaids.
