Fucking hell, make your goddamn martian minds up already! Is it blood or saliva that transfers the ability to activate the power of Aldnoah?
I don't know why, but I'm constantly getting Inko and Kaoru mixed up.
Although the show is admittedly being vague as fuck about it, the impression I got was that the saliva gives temporary Aldnoah control, whereas blood mixing (for want of a better word) gives a more permanent effect.
If they have this tech, why not integrate it into all of their weapon control systems? At the very least, it could show pilots how to adjust for environmental conditions and enemy flight trajectories.
>why not integrate it into all of their weapon control systems?
Because the anime would get good, and A-1 is working on A.Z trying to surpass Gundam SEED Destiny and take "The Worst Mecha Anime Ever" prize.
They might be referring to solar wind, which can affect magnetic fields around earth (look it up for details). I doubt it would realistically have that large of an impact on their projectiles, but I don't think it's too much to ask in terms of suspending disbelief.
Why do you search a logic in this anime ?
It's magic, they only use science to create "swagg effect" when inaho fights.
If they give Aldnoah transfer a set of rules, they should stick to those rules.
It's like how magic in Harry Potter is different than the Force in Star Wars. Both are supernatural "magic", but each are used and perceived differently and generally don't operate in the same manner.
There could be some explanation that satisfies both blood and saliva exchange for transfering Aldnoah, though.
Then why did Slaine lose his activation factor when Hime was shot, and therefore required Pinkhime? Also, why did Pinkhime imply that the power she granted him was only temporary?
He didn't lose it, weren't you paying attention? Pinkhime delibertly removed the activation rights from the tharsis se she could have an excuse to kiss slaine. The royals can override and cancel out aldnoah rights.
Lemrina seemed to imply that when she told slaine "Why don't you ask my sister" when he asked her to give him aldnoah rights back. She knows aldnoah can only be transmitted through kisses or bodily fluid swapping in whatever form so she immediately assumed he got it from hime. Which is also why she teased him about loving her since she must have guessed they either kissed or fucked for him to have aldnoah.
Good perception you have there.
And to think we could have been saved from all this confusion if the writers hadn't made such a balls of the scene from episode 13 where they discover Inaho has Aldnoah ability.
Then why bother focusing on the blood?
>Then why bother focusing on the blood?
yuki was just wondering how he got blood splatter on him and the kissing scene was just the captain speculating on how he got the activation factor. The scene overall was just confusing and badly directed so I understand why people would be confused.
I thought something along the line of
They can be transfered to another person to give them access to Aldnoah at will through physical contact, but they're hard-coded to work on royal blood no matter what.
Well, I thought about them nanomachines rather than a virus due to the fact that royals can force Aldnoah device deactivation, which would seem to be something a virus shouldn't do.
Nanomachines would probably be an reprogramming, viruses could probably be overwritten or the drive reprogrammed to recognise something different.
I really only think of viruses because the shape of the machines are so organic - lotus shaped Landing Castles, cells containing the Kats like a beehive, etc.
What small things in this show pleases you anon?
4 more episodes
We need an orbit base battle (UEF wins)
Some space political intrigue epsiode
An episode on preparations for moon base battle
Moon base battle episode (They'll both lose their kats with inaho tackling slane from behind)
Would be revealed that tharsis' gimmick only covers projectiles
>Would be revealed that tharsis' gimmick only covers projectiles
Nah, his gimmick won't be solved because inaho will feel his eye bleeding as it hurts his head to think about it. already foreshadowed with his "I feel pain" conversation.
Slaine's a MC (and he gets the most screentime this cour), he got the upperhand last time too. Gimmick solving only works with mooks.
>Writing heavily sympathizes with Slaine
>OP heavily implies Slaine and Inaho will team up
>Slaine probably won't die due to his horrible fucking decisions and complete disregard for Terrans
Fuck this show.
>director wants to fuck Slaine
>as does most of the staff
>director said Slaine's arc is his favorite thing in the second cour
Look, he might die but as hero who would get statues and coins modeled after his image, known as the liberator of all. Harmony Magazine is already spreading his name. He's famous in a good way.
These are Tharsis' right? Did the Martians have any other manned production models?
>Severely injured Inaho
>Nearly unscathed Slaine
>Slaine rushes to Inaho while firing and missing
>Slaine gets inside Inaho's point blank range
>Inaho doesn't fire, if he did, tharsis would have been badly damaged
>someone who can predict his movements
Slaine would have dodged him. Inaho knew that. Slaine's plan was to serve as decoy to let the ship pass to their destination. He won.
Stay salty, anon.
>if he did, tharsis would have dodged it because pregcon
Fixed it for you.
Inahofags are really in denial, huh? Still disappointed Slaine wasn't shattered by Inaho's existence and Inaho was the one obsessing over him?
Not at that range. Tharsis predicts bullet trajectory. Its useless if its extremely close, like they were. Inaho would have fired if he was trying to kill him.
Though of course it can be wrote up to bad directing, again.
You know Slaine dodged all of those because it anticipated the projectile path
At point blank there would be not enough time to predict where the projectile will hit
>Slainefags still in denial because of precog
>Not at that range
> Tharsis predicts bullet trajectory. Its useless if its extremely close, like they were
>Inaho would have fired if he was trying to kill him
See above. Inaho couldn't understand his gimmick, he knew it was pointless. Slaine was only serving as decoy to get the fire (oh and it worked! Inaho fell for it) and spare the ships that passed.
Slaine won. Get over this. Inaho fell on his trap.
Slaine's plan was becoming a decoy so the one shooting (Inaho) would focus on him rather than the ships. Both have reasons to not finish each other off, but Slaine was the ultimate victor because Inaho did exactly as Slaine had predicted and let his allies pass the Terran territory (Earth Forces failed to stop them getting to their base).
I'm disappointed they made Saucebum pretty incompetent while Slaine came off as some tactician.
Watch the show. They were extremely close.
Its possible they both didn't try to kill each other, though its hard to believe that Slaine would let someone who almost took out the Vers leader with one shot go.
Slaine was informed by Dorito about the friends Hime had and didn't look forward fighting them. He'll brood about it next episode just when Inaho broods about how Bat/Seagull is Slaine in his latest discovery.
I'm glad they're focusing more on mars this season, the earth cast is really boring.
sassybum and slaine planing their commie revolution is far more entertaining to watch.
Plus hime 2.0 going yandere.
>Inaho did exactly as Slaine had predicted
Its kind of hard to ignore someone dangerous shooting at you. Besides, Vers suffered a few casualties at the hands of Inaho and Co. It was more of a draw, I'd say.
I think Slaine will actively try not to kill anyone from the Deucalion if he can, he thought it would make Asseylum sad. Eddelrittuo seems to have cleared up any misunderstanding he had.
>Every grunt getting shot down all day
>then slaine shows up and dodges every shot
This IS getting out of hand.
I get the explanation being that Slaine can see the bullet trajectories, but actually, that's irrelevant. If the bullets are actually being carefully aimed using the space wind, that means that simply changing direction after the shot is fired will guarantee a miss. Basically, if the pilots did any sort of evasive maneuvers, which have been common since WWI, Inaho would have a hard time hitting anything. Bullets don't travel at the speed of light.
Seriously, the idea that the only two vaguely competent people in the entire war being Slaine and Inaho is kinda getting tiresome.
They did, it's just that the rest of their armed forces are too dumb to utilize it. Consider their strategy of running straight into the enemies weapons in every single encounter thus far.
>Vers suffered a few casualties at the hands of Inaho
It was embarrassing other than Inaho and SOME unmaned mook getting shot. I disagree it was a draw. They had the terrain advantage and they let Saucebum pass to his asteroid base.
Dorito is even tolerable now. Harklight is bro material too.
Untrue, Salsa complimented him about his piloting. Tharsis is a mech that refines his ability the best: his Instinct, which apparently should be on par with Inaho's logical analysis. So while Inaho gets the eye gimmick to help him process information, Slaine gets precog to sharpen his instinct.
I want more cute Slaine and El Dorito scenes.
I can't speak for shit like the Ice mech just standing there, but it was at a really long range, as well as the "space wind" fucking up every shot. Evasive maneuvers are useless in that sense.
On-screen, I think only one terran died, while like 7 or 8 Martians died. It seems Saazbaum suffered more damage than the Terrans. Though, Saazbaum's goal seems to be getting to the Vers base to defend it, and unfortunately had to fly by an Earth base (perfect for an ambush).
>while like 7 or 8 Martians died.
Those were unmanned Kats. Conveniently, the central ones, the ones with pilots, were untouched, so all they have to do is get more drones.
Only a few are piloted, they command the others.
But you have to factor in the vers were not expecting a uef kat to hit them from that distance with the space wind plus the fact that they were going at a very fast speed 3kps(km per second? i assume)
Quite hard to see things coming and have enough time to react
Won what? They are both still alive you fucking idiot. I'm pretty sure this encounter was just to set up Inaho figuring out what Tharsis can do so he will beat it later, and Slaine realizing he fucking failed to kill some at point blank range. Man, you Slainefags are fucking pathetic. I can't wait to taste your tears when Asseylum chooses Inaho in the end.
Three or four are manned. The ones deployed in the frontlines are controlled by them and the ones hit were the drones-like unmanned ones. Pay attention to the formation. It's like the Dioscuria pieces.
Oh has someone translated this? I see the Tharsis and recognize Slaine's name.
I agree with that anon, Slaine won because he manipulated Inaho into doing what he wanted allowing Sauce ships to come to pass. He was playing decoy to draw Inaho's fire so he would cease attacking other ships, he wasn't interested in battling anyone.
Considering he accomplished what he wanted, he was the victor of this. Not all battles are about life and death.
>evasive maneuvers are useless
What? Evasive maneuvers are simply moving away from the destination of a shot. They are particularly effective at range from an aimed shot. If Inaho is aiming his shots for the predicted location at the time of impact, simply changing directions often means that he can't hit. This is hardly new. Also, slow rate bullets are stupid to use against aerial/space targets. Guided rockets or anything with proximity detonation is infinitely superior.
Why do this ships look like jellyfish/dicks?
And that wide profile is just inviting to get hit.
Why are martian ship designers perverts and retarded?
>They were all manned mechs
What gave you this impression? Only the center mech (the one manned with Aldnoah) answered the call from the ship. There were no pilots in the other one. It seemed the other are pieces that answered to the middle ship.
None of the middle ships got hit, because if that was the case, there would be a bunch of falling spare parts.
Requires no reaction. It's just like a soldier running in a zig-zag on the battlefield. Being unpredictable makes you hard to hit, not reacting to enemy fire. Pilots still do shit like that today when targeted.
>no Martian chuuni-mech with a retarded power in this episode
I feel cheated
Slaine confirmed for remaining a sorry piece of shit.
Are we in agreement that the Aldnoah Slaine received from Princess Pink is what gave him the time-slowing abilities? If so, why don't the other orbital knights have it, and why doesn't Inaho have it?
Because Slaine a best.
And that's the Tharsis.
Why couldn't last episode have been like this one?
16 month into a conflict, practically have space superiority.
A huge human base still remains in orbit. Mars, how?
Why not just ram a ship with no crew an a truckload of explosives into your enemies base?
Yes, but I didn't want to count her because her exposure is minimal.
So is he gonna be useful this time?
1. They move a lot around in the show.
2. I didn't say the ships needed to zig-zag, simply change direction slightly every few seconds, which is old hat for planes, and totally feasible for spacecraft moving mach bajillion. The point is that if you are being targeted, you move, and by the time that the vers knew more than one guy was getting shot down, moving around should have been obvious.
And again, since Inaho was aiming his shots, simply moving fractions of a degree at that speed and that range would have worked. The show depicts the space wind as so fucking unpredictable that just small differences affect where a shot lands tremendously. Which is also fucking ridiculous when you think about how gravity works.
Looks like he was just flying by to me, though they did keep their eyes on each other.
I'm not the one who uses "cuck" like a crossboarding piece of shit from some normalfag board that popularized the usage of the word.
Please lurk more before you start posting on a board which you are clearly not a regular of. Thank you.
Tharsis was already moving really fast since it had just come into oribit, the time he was in front of Inaho like that was a fraction of a second. Would have been very hard to hit when he was that close by.
