Just over a day left to episode 2. Whose characters will they botch this time?
I still can't decide which one is more worst girl, Beatrix or Katia
Well we get to see beatrix die an excruciating death at least.
I'd go with Katie since she lives.
Retarded moeblobs shouldn't be allowed to handle guns
Beato-fags report for Duty!!
Its been fun, though proper discussion died on Wednesday.
Your taste is objectively shit
Since I really, really don't like any of the girls so far, it feels really good being able to talk shit about them for a whole week
She's not particularly stacked compared to the rest (except moeblob)
>Wanting a girl from a dirt poor country that would be destroyed by earthquakes if the BETA didn't do it already
Tell me that girl isn't post-credits chan.
Please tell me it's not going to be another Esdeath. Falling in love ruined Esdeath. I was hoping the black haired stasi chick was going to be played straight as an unsympathetic, but sexy, sadistic mass murderer her intro hinted at.
>Most VN/LNfags waifu Beatrix
>Most Anime only fags waifu Katia
That is Kirke (or Circe) Steinhoff.
>anime original faggots
They actually started off waifuing Hommussar. I don't know when they all decided to migrate to Katia. Maybe her piss is just irresistible for them.
Anime Theo makes the best faces.
Not really. They used his feedback when designing the MiG-21. He realized the importance of homegrown TSF production (his failure in getting TSF factories established in the DDR is one of the reasons why they're still so reliant on the Soviets in SM). He was also, along with Katia's dad, one of the pioneers of laserjagd, something everybody else uses in the franchise.
Why don't you ask Irisdina that question?
I'm glad that no matter what medium I read or watched I always found Katia & Lise to be the best.
Katia and Irisdina.
Beatrix wanted to unite Germany as fast as possible and put them to work in fending off the BETA and restoring their nation while the military strength was there.
Irisdina wanted to unite Germany via political channels and backstabbing (she sold out her own brother), then push back the BETA and hope they could restore their nation.
Katia wanted to unite Germany the way her daddy was hoping to.
Oh yeah. He was just good enough at politics to get himself into a lot of trouble. Given another decade or so of experience, he might have been an Axemann level political monster, but in BiS he's still just a naive kid.
That was Irisdina's brother, whom she was brocon for. She later sold him out to save her own skin.
>Is he the reason Bea is a cold heart bitch?
Partly. Jurgen was her first and only love. Almost Meiya level dedication. And Jurgen reciprocated it in kind. Whenever they had to part due to his studies/job, she waited faithfully for him. When he returned, the first person he went to see was Beatrix, not his own family. When the political climate took a turn for the worst, Irisdina sold out her own brother, which got him killed, and caused Beatrix to forever consider Irisdina her enemy. Heck, Beatrix would only come to the negotiation tables if Irisdina wasn't around.
Beatrix never gave a Fuck about uniting Germany, she gave priority to Holding the Oder-Neisse and rising in the Ranks in order to kill Schmidt, Axmann and Iris.
Beatrix wanted to unite Germany as fast as possible and put them to work in fending off the BETA and restoring their nation while the military strength was there.
Beatrix wouldn't really want that unless the stasi still managed to maintain power. She's still a firm believer in totalitarianism after all (understandable considering she grew up with the BETA, refugee crises, defection and rebellion, and nuclear winter and terrible resource scarcity all around her).
>VN has no Beatrix scenes at all
>Anime Theo makes the best faces.
That he does.
Circe isn't in the 666th though?
Its homu with alternate hairstyle and un-megane'd
She's so much better looking that way.
>The worse part is is that Beatrix will probably be the one who has to personally kill him.
Maybe, maybe not. Jurgen could pull a Yuuya and drag Beatrix out of the cockpit. And if this was Muv Luv: Schwarzsmarken, rather than just Schwarzsmarken, Jurgen would be the one "saving in the name of true love".
Of course, Schwarzesmarken would then instead be over Jurgen being the Ace, Theo acting like a pissy and paranoid little shit to contrast Jurgen (moreso than BiS already does), and some WWII-style Romeo and Juliet romance.
The lack of megane does make her less shitty but not by much
>He was also, along with Katia's dad, one of the pioneers of laserjagd
Americans figured out Wild Weasel in Vietnam though, why did they need a German gary stu to reinvent the doctrine for betas?
Cause it's Mabu Rabu, and they need to justify BiS's importance to the overall story.
I don't know why Jurg get's called a Gary Stu. He has flaws that are somewhat apparent even from the little bit of BiS we have translated.
Yui best girl
Stella best woman
Latrova best mom
He lost his confrontational attitude and became evil. Probably even brown-nosed his way up the ladders until he could get into a high-rank position, then began to manipulate others in order to let the world burn.
After all, he was one of those trying his hardest to get the Alt IV plan to fail, so that with Alt V, the world would get well and truly fucked.
Also, Strachwitz was probably as responsible, if not more so in laserjagd than Jurg was. Jurg was probably the guy to put it into practice and refine it though, just like pilots do in the real world. And he's the best pilot in SM, that isn't exactly saying much though.
>Yui best TE girl
Because Yuuhi and Meiya just cannot be beaten.
If I was a girl I'd definitely fall for Walken. What a lucky woman his wife must be.
Yuuya is really really really good looking. And his dad is the Ikaruga before Ikaruga.
I'm not sure who got it worse between Meiya and Yui.
Yeah, along with that he gets the loyal, and canonically hottest fapbait in SM as his waifu.
It was to show how shitty the Soviet's programming was. It's the same thing with Takeru introducing TSF combos into the mix.
Yuuya was making his Eagle come off looking like the Flash while facing Raptors in close combat. That is pretty impressive as well.
Takamuras are stupid good looking.
Same issue with Takeru (before XM3) and Yuuya too. Then there's PTSD Kurogane, who takes out more advanced 3rd Gen TSFs with his early 3rd Gen grunt level Takemi, without the aid of XM3 and with only blades being used in the defensive reverse-grip style.
>no hair intakes
>takes out more advanced 3rd Gen TSFs with his early 3rd gen grunt level Takemi
Since when did the Type-00C come out before the Rafale?
It's going to be a TDA version of the Extra wedding raid. With Takahashi screaming down in an orbital dropship and deploying Takeru in the lost Type 00F to crash the wedding between Ikaruga and Meiya. Takeru would make off with Meiya like Kira does with Cagalli, and Ikaruga would just remain smug and tell his forces to stand down, wishing them the best, as he'll need them both for the future of the surviving Japanese anyway.
Rafale came out 1998 Takes around 2000
Indra best slut. Outfucks all her partners, leading to them all warning off newbies like Takeru from taking her invitations.
Yuuya's hair folds look kind of like dog ears.
>With Takahashi screaming down in an orbital dropship and deploying Takeru in the lost Type 00F
>my face when he got killed protecting the XG70d
>all these fucking TSF's and Dropships being destroyed and all you can do is watching
RIP unsung Amerifat heroes that dropped ahead of Takeru
God damn was Yuuya a stuck up piece of shit in the LN but became 10/10 in the VN
>Since when did the Type-00C come out before the Rafale?
I got the dates wrong. My apologies.
I saluted the screen the first time that happened.
Right, which is why I asked that anon why he was claiming the Takemikazuchi was older/predated the Rafale. I guess its just European tech being ahead of Nip tech.
Hair intakes run in their family.
Yuuya/Yu's dad had it.
Yui's mom has it.
Yui has it.
Yuuya has it.
Still annoyed that they never had someone do the ML equivalent of the Alteisen. They did the Kyosuke and Excellen part in Eurofront, but they didn't have some 1st or 2nd gen TSF designed to just get up close and personal with balls and a pile bunker.
You call that an air-intake?
Given that Yuuya got the hair intakes despite being only half, would a theoretical child with Cryska also have hair intakes too? Maybe also have to wear psychic inhibitor? hairpins under those hair intakes?
I feel bad that his dad never knew Yuuya existed or the fact that Mira died waiting for him to come back from Japan.
His anime counterpart is no where near as cute as his LN/VN design.
Meiya's hair was straight-up inspired by GP-02A, while Yuuhi's hair was straight-up inspired by Gerbera Tetra.
Kind of sad now that other girls' hairstyles aren't based on some mecha.
>implying there's any Gundam fans left to pander too.
Would play a remake with updated art that isn't shit and sameface.
It's a serious question!
Would the child end up with hair intakes just covering their psychic headgear? Or would the child be too genetically diverse to inherit the hair intakes?
While reading the first part I was completely thinking about Kira's wedding crash.
The true hero.
A-10 is the GUNS, GUNS, and MORE GUNS equivalent of Alteisen. Instead of charging in and fucking things up at point-blank ranges, it stands proud and just fires until empty.
As far as A-10 goes, what it needs is MORE DAKKA. Add the hand-carried railgun and its large ammo backpack.
Its incredible how defensive Jurgenfags (I'm amazed these guys even exist) get when you call him a Gary Stu.
You know what's especially funny about the A-10s? A group of them ended up being deployed to save the sorry asses of Germany's civilian exodus from the encroaching BETA. And they were successful in holding a key route down to the last TSF.
Episode 2 in 20 or so hours right? Maybe we'll get an ass shot of sexstasi in her sexsuit during her bitchfit with Iris.
>Aim and shoot in more than 2 directions
Why is there always so much homolust in Mabu Rabu threads?
You have fucking top tier delicious sluts like Beatrix and Yui running around, yet many anons still want to fuck the boys.
Oh, do tell me more.
You know, homosexuality is not only a mental illness, it's a thought crime now. Every gay or lesbian couple directly contributes to population decline. Humanity isn't going to repopulate itself, you know.
So gay bashing would pretty much be the only thing these two would agree upon.
Wouldn't be too sure.
>They get drunk and see your
Well in the Alternative manga, Takeru has his Shirogane appearance rather than Kurogane appearance.
Damn it just let me believe that Kurogane will have a cool death instead of being overrun by BETA.
Anime only fag here, I remember a few threads ago some VNfag said Beatrix teased Iris in a rather homoerotic way to play a prank on her boyfriend (Iris's brother), or something like that
At least they probably died instantly. Consider the poor American divers who were sent ahead of time to secure the landing zone, and fought to the last man guarding the entrance instead of following the Valkyries in, not even knowing that Yuuko had given them false map data anyway.
Even in BETAverse, sanbaka are sanbaka.
>have hot waifu
>have hot imouto
>waifu starts gaying up your imouto
How the fuck are you even supposed to react to this kind of situation?
Frustrated arousal. I think Jurgen is a pretty good approximation of how most of us would react. He's even telling Beato to cut out in a halfhearted manner (which just translates to KEEP DOING IT, BUT HARDER in Beato's head).
So let me guess, the black haired one betrays the Captain chick and pins the blame on her (which is why Theo thinks Captain turned in her brother).
Hiroki purposely left blanks in the story. Not only does it allow for Theo (and fans) to interject and fill them in with crazy bullshit theories (Beato's just a vain, possibly lesbian, sociopath who can't let go of the fact that Iris bested her at the academy), but it also allows them to make more money. Side material is almost necessary with the way SM is structured.
is destroyer class armor susceptible to spalling? would HESH be effective against them?
Spess magic science aside. Yes, the shielding probably couldn't even hold up to a 20mm AA round. However, gravity wouldn't even allow a 12 meter destroyer not to collapse under its own weight, so that discussion is pointless.
finally figured out the answer to the Destroyer-class threat. enlarged XM25.
It's just a description of the different kinds of ammo TSFs have available.
>The standard set of 120mm round types. A typical Assault Cannon will carry 6 of these in a single magazine.
>120mm armor-piercing capped and balistically-capped high-explosive (APCBCHE)
A 120mm round that deals damage by piercing a surface and detonating an explosive payload once within. While the round is rocket-boosted, its penetration power does not match up to the 120mm APSDFS round, and the APCBCHE is usually reserved for less-armored large BETA strains.
>120mm armor-piercing sabot-discarding fin-stabilized (APSDFS)
An arrow/dart-shaped kinetic penetrator fitted with an external shell (sabot) that allows the dart to be fired out of a cannon barrel. Once in the air, the round is further accelerated by additional rocket propulsion, before the sabot falls off to reveal a finned dart not unlike an arrow. This round type is usually reserved for use against larger and more well-armored BETA strains. Similar to most penetrator rounds fired by battle tanks, effectiveness of the round in combat depends on the target, angle of fire, and other external factors.
>120mm canister shot
A 120mm round that, when fired, spreads fragments at high velocities over a wider area; usually used on clusters of smaller strains of BETA.
>120mm high-explosive squash head (HESH)
A 120mm round that does not focus on penetrating power, but instead uses the force from its explosion and impact on a surface to transmit the resulting shockwaves to whatever is on the other side, causing damage to soft and hard objects alike.
>The standard 36mm round type. A typical Assault Cannon will carry 2000 of them in a single magazine.
>36mm high-velocity armor-piercing (HVAP)
The standard 36mm round type, which is caseless. It is effective against most BETA types because of the usage of depleted uranium rounds, which gives it excellent anti-armor properties.
A 36mm round that burns a pyrokinetic charge when fired, providing a light source for allied troops and as a guide for the firer to see where his/her aim is. An essential round type mixed with the standard 36mm HVAP, the 36mm tracer was used during the early years of the invasion to provide sight advantage for allied TSFs during night fighting; in modern times it is used more as a visual aid for non-TSF ground troops.
So I'm watching TE and it's actually been pretty good so far.
Then episode 5 and 6 came and it feels jumbled.
I'm totally fine with beach episodes and I don't mind the fan service considering all the girls are hot, but it feels like this sequence came way too early.
I still barely know the characters and now Yui and Cryska are already in love with Yuuya when this should've taken a lot more episodes and actually involved combat or something dramatic.
I heard at episode 15 it suddenly takes a dark turn and people start dying and it gets kinda edgy.
I know it's Muv-Luv and the whole point is watching cute girls die but it's probably not going to be done very well, is it?
Hey guys,I started this series because I see it posted a lot and have been wondering how do I get into muv-luv? is there a chart like there is for gundam?
This is VERY not updated. But sort of explains everything.
From what I remember, beach arc was a really awkward shift from TE as a short sidestory about American test pilots to TE as a full-fledged project. It gets better afterwards, but it's always fairly lighthearted. Some cuties die though, you have been warned.
Every time I see Military/mecha-related discussions in Muv-luv I'm reminded that I'm watching this and watched TE purely for the edginess and suffering
What do you think is in those rations anon?
TDA does though
Well, they started it, so it's far to get back at them.
>people unironically waifu this piece of shit
So Age has released details on the extra goodies that come shipped with the BDs. Depending on the store, you can get different heroine posters packaged with your DVDs:
Pack1: Katia, Irisdina, Beatrix
Pack2: Katia, Annette, Pham
Pack3: Katia, Irisdina, Gretel
Pack4: Katia, Irisdina, Lise
Pack5: Katia, Irisdina, Annette
Which package would you want?
Option 1 or 4 obviously.
This does bring up a question though, why do they keep on pushing Katia?
She's doesn't even place in the top three on any of their polls. Even Gretel gets more votes than her. Lise is seen as generally the superior imouto over in Japan anyways.
In the anime, yes. They also removed Theo's paranoia, Gretel's shittiness, and added some scenes to show how over the top EVIL Beato is.
Because she's cute and the Sumika of SM. Or more specifically, the Extra Sumika of SM. The main heroine. Just look at how much prominence she had in the first episode of the anime alone relative to every other character and tell me she isn't intended as the main heroine.
It's funny, because the Japs think she's next to useless next to the other heroines.
He seriously considered shooting her while she was passed out in the VN because of his paranoia. In the anime, so far, he's been rather rationally paranoid rather than ridiculously paranoid. Further episodes should elaborate on it, so I'm not too concerned about his lack of insanity.
>Katia, the main heroine
Somebody kill me. She's no where near compelling enough to carry SM. Give me Lise, Iris or Beato, even Pham and Annette.
They put their money on the wrong girl. Normally, the token moe is usually a safe bet in these types of shows. They probably expected her to be second most popular, just right below Iris. Instead, a lot of Japs thought she was annoying, especially after Lise was introduced. Now, contrary to the usual trend in Japan, the two most mature women, Iris and Beatrix dominate the polls with Lise a distant third.
That was a shame. TE could've gotten a second season to cover the other half of the story. Age could've also given Satelight something more then a mere "shoestring size budget" and also pay Daisuke Ono for all of his lines this time around.
>removed Theo's paranoia
Seemed pretty fucking paranoid to me.
>added some scenes to show how over the top EVIL Beato is
Literally one scene, which highlight Axmann much more than her.
Why are some VN readers so autistic?
The big problem with that scene is that it kinda cheapens Beato. We're meant to antagonize and hate her right off the block, rather than things gradually building up to there. You might not think it, but first impressions are very, very important. From this point on, she can't be anything but a complete monster and the audience knows it.
I wouldn't have had much of a problem had the anime used that scene later on rather than using it as a character introduction. It's a chilling and effective scene, even if misused.
The same thing Yui would do if you were holding her hair band-aid hostage.
She's already getting a ton of hate from the plebs. I think the scene was pretty good for establishing what our feelings towards Beatrix and the stasi should be.
I claim this thread in the name of fraternal love
Just because she's beyond delusional and has an incest fetish doesn't magically make Theodor and her share the same DNA
Uh why don't they just nuke the BETA? If what I read is true, laser-class BETA can target a certain distance across the horizon and into the atmosphere right? So why don't the countries of the world just use a LOT more heavy metal clouds and debris to shelter and protect nuclear warheads so the BETA can't hit them until its too late?
Very cute. Not as cute as the twin tanks though.
Nukes cause fallout and radiation, which doesn't really affect the BETA at all so you just end up making the battlefield more deadly for your human pilot while the BETA just continue doing the usual thing.
>Shiranui Second phase 3 arms
What is this chink fanfiction? Litrerally made of half-assed copy pasted stolen technology. Almost too real
Bernadette TSF girl is more curvy then I thought.
How long until Beato Mig-27 and Lise Mig-23 girls?
That's because the Hive just landed and wasn't fully developed, meaning that the Hive can't produce any Lux or Magnus Lux yet to stop nukes.
The Day After, aye.
There are two versions of the Alternative V plan:
- The original was to strategically nuke the four or five remote Hives that were furthest away from major former population centers with a pair of g-bombs
- The remaining "core" Hives were supposed to be taken with a combination of surgical nuclear strikes and conventional military force
This could've worked in the early 90s. Operation Babylon was the revived Alternative V plan in Unlimited/TDA where America said fuck it and indiscriminately nuked every corner of the world outside of North America itself.
Yeah, that was before it could deploy. Once the reach a certain stage, most of the hive is located underground. Not something nuclear bombardment is good at taking out.
Only Phase IV Hives and up can produce laser-classes. The Russian and Chinese forces were crushing the BETA at Kashgar until the laser-class showed up and removed aerial advantage.
Exactly, combine with what >>136229290 said, it's how the US was able to nuke Canada hive, along with a large part of Canada, into an irradiated wasteland. Those poor Canadians.
The US used common sense. They saw and had the experience of the Russians and Chinese to make the correct decision. Besides, I really really doubt any Hive with the monument/slab destroyed is going to survive persistent g-bombs or nukes.
Sumika has a lot of personality, though. She was very playful with a strong sense of humor. She wasn't just a submissive good girl who wanted PEACE AND LOVE.
I'd argue that heroines like Katia tend to be the ones who kinda trail behind the more interesting girls. When they're very popular, it's because they tweak the formula a bit and actually make them interesting and/or fun to watch, i.e. Shirasaki from Daitoshokan. Or they're popular for other reasons other than their personality, like being the franchise's resident sex bomb, i.e. Kirin.
I don't know where anyone would get the idea that the fans would embrace her as the face of Schwarzesmarken. She's not following a safe formula at all.
Japan doesn't cling to girls like her, either. Seriously, listening to /a/, you'd think that your average harem sold 40,000 copies instead 1,500 and that the only thing needed to make Japan care about a female character and have their series sell is to have them say "uguu".
>The fool proof plan to win Oniichan from that Russian woman!
Katia lacks the fire and passion of Sumika. I couldn't really see Katia manhandling somebody like Sumika would, or throwing a huge fit over soy sauce. I see more of Sumika in some of the other girls. Even fucking Beatrix would be closer to Sumika than Katia would.
>Alt vs Extra Sumika
They're the same thing!
That's pretty insulting to Sumika.
Sumika wasn't shoved down people's throats, since fans actually generally tend to like her.
He's talking about her role as the writers see her, i.e. the undisputed main heroine.
It's definitely different, though. Katia is riding a narrative that fans don't want to go along with. If you were to look at the promotional material, you'd think that she were their #1 favorite and people couldn't get enough of her. Original Trilogy? You think of Sumika and Meiya! Total Eclipse? Yui and Cryska! Schwarzesmarken? It's gotta be Iris and Katia!
The really stupid thing is that at this point, they've had plenty of time to realize that fans don't give a shit about Katia. They'd much rather have Iris, Beatrix, and Lise shoved in their faces non-stop, while Katia sorta falls by the wayside.
Yeah, but design elements also suggest Sumika-inspiration.
She's the main heroine of SM, whether you like it or not. She's even the last person who sees Theodor. That's why she gets promoted so hard, anything else would necessitate outright plot-renovation to cater to more popular characters.
Look at these losers in their fancy mechs.
Real men fight BETA on the ground.
You realize that Takeru is a character unto himself, right? Sumika was always a centerpiece of Takeru's life. Even in Extra, he didn't like letting her go. If you were to have only one route (which Alternative did), she's the only choice that makes sense.
This has less to do with the story and more to do with the promotion, anyways. The Schwarzesmarken staff really wants fans to be all over Katia, and that's the narrative that they're going to push. The Alternative staff doesn't need to push a bullshit narrative about fans loving Sumika, because they'd do that even if she were deprived of merchandise.
For most people, both in the West and East, it's really these two which define SM.
The most recent major poll I can think of was over on the main Chink ML fansite, and just like everywhere else, Beatrix and Iris are really the only ones in the race. Beatrix is in second right now and she has close to three times as many votes (420) as the third place holder, Lise (144) who in turn has three times as many votes as Katia (50).
I think the closes age would get to addressing this popularity disparity is BiS, where Beato and Iris are really the only options (though Katia does show up as a very minor character).
Other girls had there chance too. It's only in Alt where Sumika get's pushed hard while Katia was pushed from the start.
Yeah, and Theo is a character unto himself. Katia's important to him because she reminds him of his sister. I don't mind the Katia pandering because I think she's one of the best girls, and frankly Beatrix really rubs me the wrong way. Esdeath and Esdeathclones need to go the way of the dodo already.
There honestly seems to be a lot more Katiafags over here than over in Asia. Then again, most people here only have the anime to go off of.
Beato was around way before Esdeath though. And she's not really that similar, even if the anime wants to push the whole sadism angle.
I don't think anyone has a problem with him choosing Sumika. It was more that in Alternative she shoves aside more developed characters and takes over the whole story for a boring romance arc. Would've been better if she had been there from the start.
Let's see, AkG started serializing in April 2010, and SM started around Winter 2010. It takes some time for Esdeath to pop up in AkG, and Beato is in the second chapter, so they both probably showed up at around the same time.
No, not 'way before Esdeath'. Esdeath came first.
Actually, AgK's second volume was in January 2011, and Esdeath showed up in chapter 7, so just before SM's first chapter. I highly doubt Hiroki would be so much of a hack as to suddenly transplant a character type wholesale for the major antagonist, so it's likely that there was just mutual inspiration stemming from dominatrixes, or maybe Sheldrake is right and there were Morphogenetic fields at work, but the fact remains: Esdeath came first.
The matter with Sumika is that she is a huge hit or miss character in Extra. If you like her, fine, no problem for you, but if you don't she is a annoying bitch that never shuts the hell up and tries to block Meiya near the climax of her route. In alternative she is nowhere as bad, but then she appears very late, after you already connected with the other girls. It makes sense for Takeru to choose her, but is still a kick in the balls for me
Yes, but it's not very interesting for a reader when you're nearing the end of a story and a character pops in to be the new focus but never actually develops beyond being a love interest. I liked everything they did with Extra Sumika earlier so it's not like they couldn't go more interesting places with her character.
She's no where near as dom as Esdeath honestly. She's just sexy, and kinda evil. I'd say she's more of a troll and femme fatale than anything else.
Some of her lines here:
are even sweet (though she still throws in some intimidation here and there)
Cima is definitely how I'd imagine a middle age Beatrix would look.
>Theo manwhoring himself just to prevent Axemann from finding Lise and having her killed.
>Threatens to bring Lise in and have her watch her onii-chan get violated by desperate prisoners before executing her in front of Theo.
Well damn, what's your favorite type of character then so I can insult you back, it's not fair this way.
>orbital drifting and avoiding anti-air fire
Takahashi is so cool. A shame we didn't get to see him in person though, it was too easy to miss his during the drop.
>you don't see them here
The blindest man is the one who chooses not to see
Schrödinger’s nipples. Eg. they were there in >>136232951 but not in this one. And then they show up on Homussar >>136232951
Same seiyuu, and similar character arcs. Takeru is the 'bratty savior' to Jesus Yamato's status as THE savior. Theo descends into extreme paranoia and general unlikability, just like Shinn.
>save a man whose in his early 30s whose career is being a former Stasi trained black ops agent and in modern times murders people or works with terrorists to further fan the flames of flashpoints between mankind for Alt V/Anti-Alt IV faction
I don't see Theodor accepting "saving".
Don't you mean early 40s?
But will Silvio inadvertently kill a MILF Katia (who inexplicably looks about the same as she did 20 years ago) who gets in the way of his final blow against The Master?
There's really "nothing" Takeru could do about talking or reforming Theodor once he becomes the Master. He's implied to be so jaded that all he cares about is the power he has and the influence he wields like a god, like with those idiots in the RLF who clung to everything he said like cultists following a mad prophet.
Hell I don't even see Takeru beating him in a fight in hand to hand considering how insanely good Theodor is at hand to hand combat.
Silvio is a fucking gag character.
SM is in 1983, and TE is in the far-flung year of 2001, so yeah, I guess he's not quite that old yet.
His love for Munakata would find a way.
Calm down, dude.
The Master cucking Silvio and taking Munakata would be nice.
Not him but even here most people tend to consider Resurrection too stupid and nonsensical to be enjoyable. I didn't like it either and it was more or less filler. I like Silvio personally but everything about that side story is just plain bad.
I have no regrets, once I get some bank stuff sorted out I'm going to buy the TSF Pilot jacket as an addon. My only shame is that I'm not man enough to buy a daki since I A) Have never bought a bodypillow and would be super embarrassed about it B) don't own a bodypillow for the sleeve to go on and C) Wouldn't be able to decide what girl to pick anyway. Plus isn't it like $200? Much too much. Maybe when I live on my own in a few years.
