this is from a series called Samurai Bride, and honestly, I’ve been trying to make sense of this image for last 10 minutes!

At first glace, it appears that the red-haired, pink-sweatered girl literally has a butt for a crotch. Or the eXTREME twist so hardcore, her butt and chest are both front and center… Upon further inspection, the butt belongs to the dark-haired girl on the right, except then she is both twisting for the boobs-and-butt shot AND is missing entire left half her torso

also, what is goin on with those pants?!?! Its like they wanted her to wear hakama, then it became weird chaps, then … more pieces went missing anyway giving a better booty view.. I dun even know

Bonus point - the ‘highlights’ on the butt in question are glowy pink, giving us our first Ass Nipples. Dare you not to see that

This image hurts my brain.  Her feet appear under her butt as if she’s squating but the legs don’t seem to indicate that she is.

From the Mirror’s Edge comic book, drawn by Matthew Dow Smith. I understand that being a parkour master might make you flexible and all, but I didn’t know it would replace your skeleton with silly putty.

I found a nicer version and put it at the top.

Putting aside Voldo, who’s meant to have the body horror flexibility thing going (his Tetris cosplay is bang on though), I’m really impressed by the girl on the left and how you can see boobs, her pelvis, and both her butt cheeks.

This is painful to look at… There’s so much wrong with her anatomy.
And why does a mermaid have a visible butt-crack partially covered by a mini-skirt?!

I… really don’t have a tag for “buttcheeks that should not be there at all”.  I really should though, this is not the first time we’ve had mermaids with buttcheeks xD  I guess, I’ll put it in errant buttock, since they are kinda errant.

A panel from April O’Neil: The May East Saga #1, penciled by Bob Fingerman. (Via this blog post.)

Her face seems to have been preserved quite nicely, the rest of her… not so much. D:

I was using a comic reader on my phone when I got the ad on the bottom. I have no idea what they wanted me to play now. I didn’t dare click my way into the ass zone.

This could do with Wartune style advertising.
BUTTS ONLY.  NO NON-BUTTS ALLOWED IN.  IF YOU ARE NOT A SENTIENT BUTT GO PLAY MINECRAFT OR WHATEVER IT IS YOU NON-BUTTS DO.

A friend send this to me. It’s from manhwa Blind Faith Descent. Nothing radically new under the sun, but grape-boobs and the belief that pants are way overrated always crack me up.

(Blind Faith Descent, author: HER, artist: ISJ)

That just looks so painful to me. o_o  My brain keeps interpreting those as her breasts just squeezed so tightly the oxygen’s been completely cut off from them. D:

So the first thing I see when I get on tumblr is this post from eschergirls and it compelled me to spend a whopping 15 minutes of my day doing a quick fix on that bunny girl’s weird body. 

I referenced a picture from the lovely SenshiStock on dA

Very nice take on the pose.  Still sexy but not omg wtf.

I haven’t found it in the tags, but Gunslinger Stratos from Square Enix :D
http://gunslinger-stratos.jp/gs2/characters/sarah.html

Let me guess, the game is about a world populated by sentient boobs who pilot mech women to save the day.  The boob windows are necessary because otherwise the boobs wouldn’t be able to see to pilot.
