Keiji best girl.
Yea Keiji has a cool power and all but fuck I could never get into his story. Maybe it's because they didn't introduce him early enough or because he seems boring as a person. Or because he has no dynamics with members of the crew as of now.
I mean I thought his back-story was necessary but not all of it despite it being pretty sad and just felt the episode was pretty wasted.
Guess they'll end the show on Komachi
killing silk worm.
>Komachi isn't the one that calls out the roach when he's retreating telling him the fight isn't over, but keiji
The whole episode felt lower budget than usual. Though not as bad as Russia episode, at least.
Seems like a scheduling problem. There were a bunch of parts where the narrator was clearly meant to be talking, but instead there's just nothing. Maybe they'll actually finish the episode for the BDs.
>dat long ass flashback
Maybe i should just stick to the mango. Keiji bobbing and weaving with his giant ass forearms looked goofy as hell

Why didn't Adolf's division overdose like Thien? It would've turned out to be useless but still.

It's not racist at all againts black people, the comparisons made between terraformars and black people are made by anons shitposting.
Now the chinese on the other hand, they are shown as the supreme evil.
RUSHED AS FUCK
holy shit, if the first 3 episodes where rushed this one was light speed-ed
>Haven't read this yet, I hear its good. Any of you black anons offended by it? Seems like something that would rile people up.
The creatures of long ago picked out DNA that would help them evolve and survive better. So it would be a compliment that out of the deceased humans they picked out a black person's genes to provide a body chassis able to thrive on Mars. Thus, the selection of the strong resemblance to a black person is a compliment within the context of the show. Similarly, in the show, it makes clear that the scheming chinese are the bad guys.
>How are there more variations of johj that weren't from people?
Both the thin atmosphere and lack of planetary magnetic field mean that space radiation reaches down to Mar's surface dwellers with far more intensity than on Earth. This causes more mutations to occur. These roaches seem to have the ability to adapt to genetic changes at will, so many random mutations are not deadly as they otherwise would be.
I still don't get why they didn't narrate this, like in the manga, it was pretty important
I know but still, You just felt like everyone respected that nigga and he would have fought of some plan to fuck the humans up. I just hope the author brings out a Roach that isn't defeated so easily.
I miss him ;_;
Hopefully it happens before Christmas it would be a nice present.
I've decided I just can't deal with this fucking anime.
It drags on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on to the point where I don't give a fuck about the characters anymore I just want to see a fight I'm starving for it and it never delivers. It's always 3 fucking minutes long of a 25 minute episode 2 of those minutes dedicated solely to MORE exposition.
Like holy shit they've been on Mars for less than a day for fucking 11 episodes now e-fucking-leven.
what a disappointing episode
they spent 80% of it on the backstory, and used almost none of the description of his MO. they mentioned the eyesight a bit, but not nearly as well as the manga did, and said absolutely nothing about its punches. i was highly anticipating the page where it goes something along the lines of 'yeah their eyesight is good, but their main feature is THE PUNCH'
>you can see Michelle through Keiji's pants
>no love for Isabella
>no love for echidna girl
Why did it have to be like this, why?
I honestly couldn't have seen a good way to adapt a series like this, even with two cours -- there'd be even more padding of the action with exposition, tragic back stories and flashbacks. Can't imagine how the first stretch of episodes would've gone, really.
thats a planaria you dumb shit
manga magazine raw
I think 2 cours would have been fine for this so they could end it some where decently.
But when they spend 15 minutes on the whole of Keiji's back story which didn't need to be that long then its obvious why this show is selling like shit.
>Some planarians exhibit an extraordinary ability to regenerate lost body parts
For fuck sake, We already have the Octopus and now this shit.
she literally grows back from her tit
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA, Is this really fucking real.
I'm at loss of words
>But when they spend 15 minutes on the whole of Keiji's back story which didn't need to be that long then its obvious why this show is selling like shit.
I think the series composition guy for the TF anime might have been a bad choice. Looking over his track record on ANN doesn't give me a particularly good impression (apart from working on based Milky Holmes) and Hamasaki's direction hasn't been able to completely salvage it either.
But speaking of Hamasaki I was half-expecting to see some grainy Texhnolyze episode 1 Takeshi Koike-esque sakuga for Kenji's boxing matches but that was definitely a bit of a stretch and all-too-wishful thinking.
also she's the perfect adolf now since she insta-regenerates instead of getting scarred
she's holding one of his electrical plates that he had implanted, and the eye in the ground is probably adolf's too
Also she is now the biggest Mary Sue in the history of manga
Looks like she's holding Adolf's bomb.
Ok my dear turbofaggings i have some questions:
1) Is michelle dead?
2) Akari back to normal now? because in 120 i see one arm being like an insect
3) The girl saved by Adolf is now a new adolf?, she absorb him ?? and now she is immortal?
4) Michelle loves akari?
5) The MARS #1 what the fuck is his insect?
I'm positive that Fran is behind this
Planaria is a sort of worm whose regenerative abilities are incredible, look at videos on youtube, you'll see some cut in half and both parts forming a new planaria.
When she was blown up her heart was gone, just a chunk of tit left. She still came back, seems like there it;s explaining why the electricity is not killing her heart every time she uses it..
Haven't seen the newest ep yet, will get around to it maybe next week. As much as I love the roller coaster feels of everyone's tragic background, I'm getting a little sick of it. As much as I love Adolf, it was not necessary to drag his past out for 3 episodes. Also, is it just me, or is the QUALITY getting worse every episode? Did they already blow thru the budget?
There's no way hes dead. Not after all the buildup hes gotten with his secret base and 600 years of superior breeding and nifty sword skillz. We haven't even gotten to see him fight yet, besides a few easy kills. Fuck I hope he survived.
He's dead as dicks isn't he?
You gotta dive deep for those. I had some kind of Asian forum where they posted some of the scans but I didn't bother to save the link. Your best bet is to go into the archive; about a week back some kind anon posted most of 121. Didn't even explain that it was 121 though so it might be a bitch to figure things out.

>Eva will die in 5 chapters
After 100 chapters people still don't seem to understand how this manga works. If the person has a name and is even relatively important they are virtually invincible. Aside from Sheila and Adolf, no one on the Annex has actually died except for background characters with no prior build up. And Adolf has now apparently come back through Eva, so it's just Sheila.
>That aren't from people.
Annex I? You do know that's the current mission they're on right? He's talking about how they get mutations related to animals that no human body ever carried to them.
>Michelle is dead
>Joseph is dead
No body no way
>Eva will die in 5 chapters
Actually she'll probably get captured by the roaches and get a bad end if the manga ends with the crew abandoning Mars
Didn't Michelle make some conjecture on this in the anime? While she was being dragged underwater by the beetle she assumed that it was probably some officials on earth or some other civ sabotaging their mission or whatever.
Octofreeman is alive too!
Mantis Roach, you never delivered and became nourishment for Joseph. Well, we still have Akari.
I doubt there're better alternatives at hand.
I agree, according to rankings that wimp is more useless than Sheila.
Anon, I said "at hand". Asimov is somewhere else at the moment.
is eva suppose to be evil now? also it looks like joseph's regen is slightly above baoh teir he got his eye back quick but he needed to eat a shit load to regrow his current injureis. eva on the other hand has fucking majin buu level regeneration and power stealing possibly can wield more than two.
No, she's helping Akari and have assasinated President Johj. However, she's too hax at the momment so there's no way the final boss can one-up her unless she or Joesph makes a heel turn and become the final boss.
Would you watch an anime told from the perspective of the Johj
Yaeko should have given her pants too. Eva now looks like a badass exhibitionist.
After dropping the show when it was extremely censored after episode 1, I checked it out again out of curiosity.
I have come to the conclusion that it is the best show at the moment.
The cinematography, the shots, it is fucking amazing and hasn't been brought to the screen in this kind of quality, especially for TV, in a long, long, long time.
The production value and the whole visual design is top percentage (even if a few episodes show lesser quality) and makes up for many of the logical flaws, etc, for me.
The removal of the censorship fixed everything and made this the greatest chinese cartoon to air at this moment in time.
That is all.
>That feel when he inspired me just then to do boxing practice again
>That great feeling of punching shit is back

He says:"Good luck finding these kanji, illiterate fagget".
Reminder that Kanako let at least 3 men ride her and none of them was named Marcos.
Will Liu tentacle rape that johj to death?

He's definitely alive. Hell, I bet a future twist will be that he's not really loyal to anyone but his family, and they, being the megahuman minmaxers that they are, want to have the best Mosaic shit in the world to further push the boundaries of evolutionary superiority.
As long as chinks and their motherland are obliterated I'm fine.
The niggeroaches may or may not survive on their nice little mossy planet, all I care about is the chinks dying.
And then they will all be revived on the third day.

Got me wondering if the solution for the roach problems lies in sending policemen rather than genetic enhanced bug men. Why not genetically enhanced police men.
In their defense, the roach was carrying a weapon.
>this much nihilism
No one said a thing about "world peace" or any other utopia. While it's obvious, natural and physiologic that every nation has their personal interest in the mission, their first objective is to save themselves and mankind.
Remember Newton senior? The guy fucked all over the Japanese scientist who betrayed the Bugs 2 mission, he stopped him from bringing roaches back for military purposes and for the glory of Japan, and he plainly ordered everyone to destroy roach eggs because he didn't actually want the mission to become yet another asset in geopolitical arm wrestling.
So yes, there is a lot to gain from the mission, but I didn't see anyone but the chinks going completely anti-human, killing their brothers who were (also) personally fighting for good reason and for the good of others, and aborting the mission because they needed more shekels to give to mr. Chink President.
Even Russia was interested in Rahab the most, and yet they're still thinking about the people on Earth first.
Everyone is trying to get the most influence out of it, haven't you read the politibabble? The other factions were going to join the Chinks until the Japs dropped the bomb. The Chinks are of course going to try to develop a cure against the virus, what they're fighting about now is the military superiority that studying the Mosaic mutants will grant. Nobody at all is fighting for the sake of the cure.
That would be really shitty, I hope they're forced to stay on Mars for a long while or new recruits fly into Mars to help maybe new nations like Britain or something would be cool.
>implying the Chinks haven't been highly civilized for long periods of time
>implying European nations have a long history of altruism
>implying you know shit about world history
Actually, everyone on Mars except chinks is mostly fighting for the cure, haven't you read the "I'LL DEFINITELY COME BACK AND SAVE EVERYONE!" everyone except chinks says at some point?
And everyone back on Earth is fighting to
As explained in the previous post, there's trying to get the most influence out of the mission and then there's sacrificing things the mission initially stood for only so that you can build a monument to Mao.
I'm talking about the people who put them there, not the soldiers. Everyone, including the Chinks, care about the cure, because the cure isn't politically valuable to keep to yourself, because everyone is going to fucking demand it and anyone trying to withhold it is going to get fucked in the ass. Imagine if China developed a cure for cancer and said, "nuh uh we're not sharing." The cure matters for everyone, but it's not the reason they're fighting amongst each other now, they're fighting because everyone has an additional agenda, which is to strengthen their political influence through Bugs surgery.
The agenda is, the chinks "think" they can control the roaches or develop better hybrids or something when in fact, they're just fucking and burying each other even further. In the end, they gonna get fucked by dem roaches.
Fucking niggers we all know the only ones to survive dis shit is Akari and the blond cocksucker Michelle. Everyone else is going to die.
For now we know Michelle likes Akari and maybe loves him (nah she wants the D).
Someone have the image "not this shit again"?
>"I'LL DEFINITELY COME BACK AND SAVE EVERYONE!" everyone except chinks says at some point
They said it too.
>Every female has jobbed or died horribly
>Somehow Eva is back and Michele is on her way back(?)
Jesus fuck this guy is starting to crack. What happened to the hilarious unforgiving deaths like the half beetle girl and black girl getting blown up? Why bother breaking his trend? Is he trying to set them up for some supergigaroach to job to?
Negro, I've been agreeing on the national relevance of the outcome of the mission since my first post, my point is that despite the obvious interests, Chinkland is the only one not giving a shit about others and acting for itself with a "no matter what it takes" attitude. Athough my original point was that the chinks on Mars are utter shit.
>Every female has jobbed or died horribly
Yeah, besides Michelle, Kanako, Xi, Sasha, Nina, Hong or the narwhal girl.
Considering the roaches are doing a good job at living and adapting on Mars its pretty much Niggerformars and the story of how roaches will take over everything with the useless struggle of humans trying to prevent that.
>all this rationalization
Hitler literally didn't rationalize this bad when he made up excuses to kill the jews.
>I won't let people on Earth die
>so I need to kill you
>disregard the fact that no one here was trying to hinder the progresses towards the saving of mankind in the first place
>it's totally not because muh nation, I swear!
It makes no fucking sense. Everyone went there also to find a cure and mainly to let humanity advance and find a new home. Then he came out of the blue and started slaughtering his companions in the name of Earth? Do you realize this is pure bullshit?
Why are you quoting me?
They had a genius who knew something it shouldn't have known and they didn't invent or recreate spaceships. Oh no, they didn't, their endgame goal right now is a fucking string, so stop with you fanboism.
The others are acting for their own benefit as well. Japan and America already have Michelle and Akari, and the other factions (bar the chinks) are trying to curry favour with them in order to get the scraps and not fall behind. Russia wasn't going to help JapAm against the chinks either, until the Japs revealed they had that scientist guy. Nobody is a good guy in this story, it's all about nations and coalitions vying for power. Most likely, JapAm would have preferred not to send Michelle and Akari on the mission, but since the other nations found out about those two they had no good excuse for having them stay behind for military research, when everyone else were sending their best to find the cure.
The roaches have been busy with internal strife due to the death of Johjsus, and now they're reorganizing and observing the human invaders, trying to find a way to approach the Annex or waiting for the invaders to cripple themselves from internal strife. The roaches will surprise us, I have no doubt about it, because the author is a master twister, stronger than even Kubo.
That's because the roaches were manipulated by an "unseen" entity which many assumed to be an alien lifeforms or something an alien civilization left behind. The roaches were specifically bred and agressive to humans beings. For reasons not quite understood other than, at this point, survival on the most primary level.
>caveniggers from mars are capable of splicing
>using fucking stone knives
It devolves to the first contact, when the first girl that could produce silk was killed and they took her body.
It's not clear why they are obsessed with silk, but they are and know what it is.
Having a genius with knowledge it couldn't have normally had, the organ the operation is based around, literacy(invented by the aformentioned geinus), no pain receptors and good endurance sure helps.
It's the second contact. And it was their demigod genius who got interested in her.
It's their currency, their prestige, their legitimacy, their only product that is both limited, useful, and renewable. Unless they're trying to weave space airships to journey to Earth or someshit.
Sure it is. Finger comes off, finger's cells aren't past the point of no return, finger is reattached, finger reconnects and becomes part of you again. Why can't you do it with someone else's finger? Because you don't have a Mosaic Organ. That's what the Mosaic Organ is, it lets you accept foreign genes and cells and all that shit.
>"extracting" silkworms from BUGS human
There's the "dark" possibility that the roaches use a far simpler method of assimilate genes via reproduction. But, the realization of those left behind being alive being playthings to roach scientists is "deeply disturbing".
>implying we know shit about Mars
Silkworms are getting teeth >>117962062 and moths are getting human fingers. They probably just stick on an arm and whatever force is giving bugs fingers makes it work.
Yeah but on practical terms? Niggers have to stuff insects into other niggers somehow, and they have to extract silkworms from Akio somehow. Or are you suggesting that some litte hidden Rahabite is performing all of this shit? Because it could be a thing.
>it grew two complete, albeit weak, hands out of their fingers
Not directly, could be a remnant, a machine or something in the air. The point being, the roaches aren't the only thing mutating. The silk worm and the moth, they are evolving, they are evolving into "something" on their own.
Mars, is becoming "alive". While Earth is dying.
>they are evolving into "something" on their own.
>Mars, is becoming "alive". While Earth is dying.
What the fuck are you talking about. The moths are like that because they apparently have some human dna left in them from the time when Jesus roach extracted them from Akita
>extracting from Akita
What the fuck are you talking about?
They were breeding silkworms on the bugs ship as a food source, the roaches just stole them and kept breeding them. I think its mentioned that the extra source of protein is whats behind the bigger than normal roaches.
The cover of the new volume has Keiji on it. This is just a color page. And Akari has two mommies.
>Seems she was born like that
And anon, she weighed over 80kg. She is an inhuman monster alright.
He knows what the readers want
Theoretically yes, but for the sake of keeping things fair, I think she can probably only regenerate the part that contains her heart. I'm sure there were other bits of her that got scattered during he explosion, but aren't capable of regenerating.
Don't know. I assume they all looked the same.
Then again, THEN AGAIN...
Maybe we should ask her about it.
They never had a living, incapacitated human in their hands while not involved directly in a fighting situation, there's no reason to think she is kill
m-maybe they're pulling the quills and using them
If I were you, I'd sure wish she's dead.
Never seen his corpse. At this point, it doesn't really matter if he's alive or not >>117969808
He's a small fry, he's no leader. We don't know who leads the roaches.
Because you didnt appreciate this fight enough.
Maybe they're drinking equidna's milk
We know that they don't plant bombs, they don't do eugenics, they have a hierarchy and there's no treason within them. Other than the edgy rage against the humans, which may be the work of Rahab and not their fault, they are fucking noble.
It's not clear what they intend, but judging by what the chinese dude talked when he threw the other two off the car, they aren't mindless. The roaches has a sinister preference for human females, but nothing is known other than theorizing.The roach may be aware that a female is usually weaker than its male counterparts.
Who knows? But they do seek to capture live ones.
No indication that extermination of humanity is Rahab's goal. I've been viewing it more as a "survival of the fittest" scenario, where Rahab was vaguely humanoid, and they left genetic tech inside all the species they created, where the dominant species would assume a Rahab-like form, and violently war with any other Rahab-like animal it finds, in order to prove dominance.
On Mars, with no predators, roaches became Rahab-like. Since they aren't fully capable of capturing the moths, the moths are slowly developing Rahab-like features. If there's an Annex II mission in a hundred years, the roaches will probably have a slave caste of moth-men that they regularly devour for food.
I think it's not so much of a survival of the fittest scenario as a rise of civilizations, nations, and species scenario. Humanity declining and Johj prospering is similar to how great nations are founded, rise to the top, lose sight of ambition, weakens, and are overtaken by another nation, while the Johj at the same time mirror the development of civilization itself.
Wow, some people don't understand a damn thing they read, do they?
The silkworm moths were on board Bugs II as a secondary source of food for the crew. When the ship crashed, a number of them escaped and some were eventually domesticated by the roaches who use them to create cloth, and as a source of food. The moths are mutating, because of Rahab or whatever, who knows, there's all of three real mysteries in the series so far and that's one of them.
The roaches, probably using the pure-human Bugs I crew as a basis, are stealing the mosaic organs from Bugs II and Annex I, and implanting them into their own kind. The roach-variants, are natural mosaic organ users, like Akari and Michelle, so they can freely take on animal traits without risking their health, and are natural receptors to every animal. They take in the mosaic organ, and then their bodies use the new genetic information to change them.
They already have those, they just enough of the body and their own organ does the rest. Hence why the fly roach stole Crabs arm and gave it to the rest of the roaches.
Oh yeah, the moths were mutating into humanoids as well, I remember that.
How long until fuzzy moth humans join forces with the annex and btfo the johjs and chinks? And then we get tons of feel good monster grill sex.
I'm assuming that it's more complicated than grafting just a piece of a transformed person in order to make a roach-variant, since I don't think we've seen roaches deploy a power set on two roaches concurrently. But maybe that's why they are trying to take people alive, so that they have more "parts" to harvest for super roaches.
Axolotl or one of those immortal jellyfish would be awesome.
what is is about Bao that fucking pisses me off?
I always assumed that it just took time for the graft to fully kick in (just like with the humans after their surgery), after all the humans have only been on mars for a couple of days.
Also i'm pretty sure there is a side flash of the young looking roaches grafting parts onto another roach.
