The whole Zombie apocalypse was caused by AYYYY LMAOsss
>aliens used some biological weapon to create zombies
>terrorists used some biological weapon to create zombies
>some virus/bacteria magically turned people into zombies
It's all the same shit. It's not as if you could ever get a realistic biochemical explanation of how people could be turned into zombies because zombies aren't fucking real.
I am a Hero's appeal was because it seemed like a somewhat realistic approach to a zombie apocalypse. Throwing aliens into the mix just felt stupid, at least if there was some sort of lead on in the beginning then it wouldn't seem so hamfisted. I would rather that Hanazawa leave the infection a mystery but that's just my onion.
What if it's an alien military weapon (aka a virus) but the alien is actually an alien para-military group akin to ISIS. Basically, an alien's terrorist organization has attacked our planet with their engineered bio-weapon life-form to take over and use our bodies as cannon fodder in its interstellar jihad in the name of the One True God against the alien infidels.
This manga has still a long way to go.
There that one hive that's seem to be looking for Hirumi
That girl on Europe
But most of the plot lines all seem to meet in tokyo
>Aliens caused a zombie apocalypse
I wonder if the author of this just read Robert Kirkman's plan for how The Walking Dead was originally supposed to go and decided to use it since he hasn't followed up on it.
I can see it lasting about ten more volumes.
Zombies aren´t exactly realistic either. Also in a lot of settings they just somehow exist without needing to eat or drink for long periods of time. Not to mention the infections they would get from all that rotting flesh,etc etc.
I am not talking about release speed. I mean the pacing. This manga is ridiculously slow paced and not much in the way of plot ever happened. You can't expect a satisfying ending out of a manga with such qualities
I was pleasantly surprised actually. All these movies and books about super advanced alien civs trying to destroy humanity and not one of them uses the most elegant and efficient way to do it.
Well Oda was not infected and she saw Hideo just fine.
The guys om the roof were zombies that were chosen to take the little girl to the hive and they were left with a little bit of Humanity,
Maybe Hideo is a Kurusu. He's probably infected now because he already fucked HIromi
AY LMAO YO'!
So then what matters here? is it the plot, the art, the story-telling?
I can imagine a unique explanation for a zombie apocalypse to occur, though it would be pretty cringey but original none-the-less, yet it would be disliked because it's cringe-tier.
Strictly talking about how a zombie apocalypse occurred, the idea that aliens used it for bioterrorism to easily take over the world is not only unique, but interesting and enjoyable.
The military or some human created virus is overused and boring as fuck.
I don't have a problem with aliens, but I can see where they're coming from. It's such a mixed bag. How they look, how they act, how they interact, their level of technology, etc is all so important for writing good aliens and it's hard to do. I hope it's done right.
>mfw The aliens are the bacteria themselves
>random character:"you know, maybe it was the aliens who made the plague"
>/a/: "aliens are canon? FUCKING DROPPED"
itt newfags with no reading comprehension read months old chapters and take their own speculations as canon
Now that I think about it
There now way the author going to draw some Ayy Lmao
It wouldn't fit the overall aesthetic of the story
So yeah the bacteria might actually be the aliens
>random character:"you know, maybe it was the aliens who made the plague"
>/a/: "aliens are canon? FUCKING DROPPED"
Exempt you would know if you read it
They pretty confirmed that it was actual aliens that did it
That's bullshit. Every explanation on zombies is pseudo-scientific. No real virus could cause an apocalypse or imitate the "zombie-disease" presented in almost any work. Aliens offers probably the most plausible explanation as it's technology X we are not aware of yet with our scientific level. This is much less a cop-out than "it's disease". Do you know why zombie flicks rarely explain the disease (and if they do the movie is bound to be kind of shit)? Because the reason is always a cop-out.
But so far every prediction the supposed ayy lmao did turned out to be true, even the fact they were actually dead. So far the series has had multiple theories and they have remained as theories, but this is the only one that comes from a showcased "reliable" source that knows at least a bit he is spouting, and only theory that actually has an own arc. So at this point I'd say from narrative viewpoint alone it's the most plausible theory.
I hope they won't explain it any further.
I think the problem the FUCK ALIENS guy is having is what I would call a "fiction overdose".
We already have zombies in the story, which is a whole genre unto itself. Adding the aliens genre on top of it may feel like a bit too much for some people, particularly if they are deep into the zombie thing. It may simply feel cheap to bring in aliens at this stage.
It's hard to say as the movie isn't out
or is it, I don't know?but the trailer looks fine. It's hard to believe it can convey the same atmosphere as the manga, because manga is really slow in it's building, and judging from the trailer the movie makes the slight humor more obvious part of the setting. One of the things I really liked was that nothing really happened in the first volume, and the buildup to zombies was long. In the trailer it looks like your typical, "shit, zombies, everything is on fire and planes falling"-type of apocalypse, instead of the slow and slowly progressing one. But the movie looks fine, at least it doesn't look like a typical low-budget live-action.
>But otherwise this is golden if done right.
There are lots of media where this happens, but they are usually not plot-heavy or do not require a huge time investment.
For example, there are tons of videogames where you play an hour or so of zombie action as part of an alien invasion, and the transition is exciting rather than jarring. Mass Effect and Metal Slug start you off against zombies or zombie equivalents and then put you up against zombies quickly.
However, people have been following I am a Hero for months, if not years, due to how long it takes manga to be published and the long waiting period between each chapter or volume. I understand this may cause some people to flip the table when the transition from zombies to aliens takes place.
If done right it doesn't have to transition from zombies to aliens. Logically it'd be zombies and aliens. Even if they eventually make a switch to aliens it'd be near the end of a series..
I don't think they're going to just switch it up completely, but where is this headed? They can't just have pointless zombie survival forever. There has to be some kind of ending eventually.
What if the ayy lmaos did a research on us humans and they found out that we are so obsess with zombie flicks and wants a real zombie apocalypse so did exactly that for the upcoming invasion
I don't know if that theory is still plausible , dropped this shit when hideo got eaten by that zombie
>she is dead
>she is dead and will never come back
>we gonna have to live with it
why i keep doing this to myself
When will people realize that Zombies are an incredibly boring movie monster and only work in 2 hour doses?
As entire shows/manga etc it doesn't work because at the end of the day zombies are slow, dumb and stupid and that's all there is to them. Unless you give them some flavour. The alternative is you turn it into a "HUMANS ARE THE REAL MONSTERS" thing which has been done a billion times now
People will eat up as much zombie shit as possible until the next craze catches on. Hopefully that'll be soon, I'm tired of having to watch The Walking Dead just to keep up with talking points for normies.
You are clearly missing the point of zombie-flicks or have just watched the "modern" mass produced ones. Good zombie flicks are about humanity and drama, where the entire "zombie setting" could be replaced with any natural disaster without changing the core plot. That's why series and movies etc that are zombie-heavy usually represent the worst of the genre. And I'm not sure if you're actually paying attention to this detail based on your post, but I am a Hero definitely has its own spin on zombies: as you think they are getting boring there's something new and strange waiting.
Are you implying the craze hasn't died yet? Even a few years back zombies became the stock monster that was everywhere, and today people actually judge zombie flicks based only the word "zombie" because their understanding of the genre is limited to the few shitty mass-produced movies they've seen. Walking dead is an exception on the popularity, but pretty much anything else is judged harshly
even though the tv-series is utter garbage
>Are you implying the craze hasn't died yet?
It's on the decline, but it's certainly not dead. The popularity of zombie movies has dropped, but they're still clinging to unlife in comics and video games.
You might be right. I don't read comics that much and in the games I've always felt they are the necessary stock-enemy, alongside with nazis. Someone might like it, but as far game design goes (being forcefully fit in a scenario that has realistically nothing to do with zombies) I've always viewed them with contempt.
>even though the tv-series is utter garbage
why spoiler that? literally everyone who's watched past season 1 episode 2 and is not a fucking retard could tell you that
>Good zombie flicks are about humanity and drama
No, they're about zombies and how the humans deal with the phenomenon
You can do humanity and drama in a multitude of replaced settings as well.
>Are you implying the craze hasn't died yet? Even a few years back
World War Z happened, and a few other dumb fucking ones I can't recall right now, and they were received pretty well.
Yeah, probably. That's why I included "And I'm not sure if" if I wasn't sure which viewpoint you took. In this light I think we both agree on the same things.
>Zombies and how they deal with phenomenon
You're saying pretty much the same thing as I said, zombie setting can be replaced with any natural disaster without large change in the core plot: they are stories on how people cope with crisis, portraying humanity and drama that ensues. It's just a different wording.
>World War Z
I don't know about sales, but it got shit on the reviews and at least amidst the people expecting proper adaption.
I thought you were referring to the way the Walking Dead does "humanity and drama!" with the people being whiny bitches who make conflict out of nothing. If that's not what you meant, then good on you.
World War Z got pretty decent sales as I recall; only the people who read the book were mad about it.
Illuminati is taking all the time in the world; feel free to spend a long time so long as the product is completed *eventually*, you know? They're always open to more help, and given they only have one translator looking at the project right now (who admitted he was slow the other day), you could help speed it up even a little.
> Implying we cared about any girl other than the high schooler
The nurse was a slut. Deal with it
So far the aliens have been mentioned in like 3 pages. It's still too soon to say which route the story will take. At least in vol 17 isn't anything graphical relating to aliens.
