Can we have a Mugen no Ryvius thread?
Finished last night, /m/, fucking 10/10 anime.
I'm glad you liked it anon,I saw it this summer (after having it in my backlog for months) and thought it was pretty good too.
A lot of people tend to compare it to another story called king of the flies, but I wouldn't know how similar they are since I haven't seen that.
The Vital guarder was a concept in the show that interested me a lot though since it felt kinda realistic in terms of its operation, I'm guessing that was due to robot technology in the 90s. I really liked it though,I wish sunrise could remaster it or something
The Lord of the Flies is a novel that has been more or less adapted(that simpsons episode comes to mind), its basically a society of kids without adults goes to hell and back.
I liked the characterization and the hard scifi as well, like the explanation of why the vital guarder cant be manned because the speed its traveling at would kill the crew instantly.
The consensus on /a/ its a lot like Planetes pretty much everybody who watched it loved it, but not talked as much.
I wonder what did the nips thought about it.
Wish the manga had a translation, a BD release would be great too.
>burn them Koji
>burn them all
>mfw she got BTFO
Can you beat
NTRlike Charlie did?
I NEED AN ADULT!
Charlie was a unique specimen,he was so beta he crossed over the beta threshold and somehow looped around into alpha territory and turned a shitty girl into one of the best, He was the true winner
On my second run through, the biggest gripes I found myself having with the show were
>they could've put more effort into the opening, it felt halfassed at times and while Dis is a groovy song and all it's not groovy enough for me to sit through it 24 times when the opening slideshow isn't going to change any more than "look at the most recent big event that we jammed in all hamfist-like!"
>the battles with the other ships of the vaia rainbow fleet were actually way shorter than I remembered them, and while yes the meat of the show is character drama I still think that the show could've had a bit more combat action mixed in; according to website lorefluff stuff there's supposedly two other vaia ships that make up the whole fleet in addition to Gespenst, Impulse, Dicasta and Ryvius but they're a no-show in the series proper and well that's two fewer bouts of space combat...
BUT WHATEVER IT'S FINE.
FOUR SPACE SUBMARINES OUT OF FIVE, WOULD RECOMMEND TO DRAMAFAGS.
Aaaaand the trolling starts... now!
>Wish the manga had a translation
The manga was fully translated and sold in the US, with the second volume being heavily delayed until early 2000s. I know because I owned both at one point (I still own them, but they're lost in boxes from moving).
The manga was a telling of the same general events, but from the PoV of childhood friend Aoi and her friends. The ending was slightly different though. Among other notable differences I recall is that it did make it clear that Kouji and Aoi did have desperate, emotional, comfort sex, when it was only hugging in the anime. Izumi was implied to have suffered some sexual harassment by the other girls that had attacked her too.
Fun fact: Criff was a
tranny. Michelle called her "brother" at one point, and was latter officially confirmed that Criff was born male. I can't remember if the manga made her a girl through and through though, or if s/he underwent complete gender reassignment operation after they were rescued.
This is the anime the birthed the beast called Valvrave, it is the endless winter of discontent that consumes all with the force of a black hole, blocking all from the shine of the sun in its gluttonous wake.
>Most of current /m/ has never read Lord of the Flies
This series is literally Lord of the Flies IN SPACE the anime. Just with less headbashing with a rock and the token fatty dying horribly. Of course this was going to be depressing and fucked up.
Is it bad that I once wanted to fuck an alien Vaia who happened to take on a human form?
And even after finding out she was literally a space squid turned human, I'd still fuck her?
>The book was horrendous, why subject people to literal torture?
That was one fucking hilarious pun, 10/10.
It's not a fun read in the slightest but it's a very impactful narrative when it comes to showing off how kids can be the most nightmarish assholes around in the absence of authority.
It doesn't help that grade school teachers like to read into the story harder than is necessary, because the book itself is frustrating as is.
>The book was horrendous, why subject people to literal torture?
Because it was mandatory reading in both US Middle School and High School Literature class, and was one of the options as a mandatory BritLit book one would have to read in college Brit Lit (if you didn't take US Lit).
Also, I never said it was good; hated that fucking book, along with all the other shit we had to read like Little Women, but the fact many don't know about it despite having won a number of book awards and being one of those near worldwide "mandatory reads" as a classic literature piece is surprising.
I'd take Flies any day over trash like A Separate Peace.
Holy shit is that book a pile of trash.
Unironically I enjoyed Catcher in the Rye, but never had to read it for required reading. It's quite fun for a story about a teen's downward spiral quarter life crisis
It is almost as if these kids were prototype space rats or something.
>/m/ literature & circlejerking
I forget if I read through 451. Probably for the best, since normally I can't stand dystopian fiction so being unable to remember it is as good a sign as any that I was at least ok with it.
451 is about burning books, and how books are the evils. And Firefighters don't put out fires; they're the ones called in to start them if someone is reported for having illegal books.
Brave New World happens to be one of the earliest books I recall mentioning 4D/virtual reality films, though theirs went bizarre with the feely porn at theaters (which isn't as bizarre now, but back then).
No I remember that stuff about 451 (aka the temperature at which paper ignites), I just don't remember if I read through it.
Protag fucks off from his society to join a bunch of book lovers, right? Leaves his wife to waste away in front of the television? Something like that?
Part of the reason everything turned out so badly is because half of the cast has "issues" and the other half are full of fucking sociopaths.
There ain't nobody telling Amuro that he can just "remove Bright from his past" to get over it, he just has Bright telling him to get in the goddamn mobile suit.
>I liked the characterization and the hard scifi as well, like the explanation of why the vital guarder cant be manned because the speed its traveling at would kill the crew instantly.
The first thing they do when they see the Vital Guarder is laugh at for having arms and legs in space.
Also, I like hearing madmen tell tales about this showing up in SRW.
Is that what her fucking problem was?
I thought she was just sad because she was leaving him behind.
My biggest gripe is that fuck that
locks everyone away in the ship and leaves them there to die FUCKING GETS AWAY WITH IT., and then that piece of shit is on the cast like ain't nothing happened!
I was hoping someone would punch him in the fucking face.
>IR shows up in SRW
>Turns out Granzon's power is based on the Vaia's natural gravity control powers
>MCs for the game beat common sense and establish authority over the Ryvius children.
>Bright comments his hands hurting after having to BrightSlap so many children.
The other 2 subs were not ready in time.
Aside from the one that attacked the station, the others were scrambled to deal with the Ryvius. One of them was rushed out of maintenance too.
Likely they were rotated out, the way the US rotates out their carriers, with a maintenance period for the ones in reserve.
>implying the Ryvius kids don't get thrown under the bus alongside team Valvrave due to the combined effort of conspiring adults being assholes
>also somehow Jovian colonists from Nadesico are involved
>it's a massive clusterfuck conspiracy hijinks episode full of mood whiplash
>and then out of nowhere it's fucking Jehuty
Well, the issue is that among the presence of 'a normal human being', you basically don't have the plot anymore, or have to either rewrite or avert many of the things that happen in the plot.
Even if you just threw Judau and gang in there, you'd still get a horseshit den, but you wouldn't get that level of insanity.
Actually it's well documented that vaia ships make people mentally unstable, so there's no guarantee that authority figures would make everything better.
In fact, it could make things worse! The metaphorical straw breaking the camel's back, if you will.
>Is that what her fucking problem was?
>I thought she was just sad because she was leaving him behind.
She was so horny for the kid she was angry, thats all.
It'd be kind of interesting if she did actually end up having sex with Pat somehow. Maybe in a state of momentary insanity. After all, being near a Vaia causes gradual mental breakdown, and those kids were exposed to a Vaia for quite awhile.
Related to the manga, because I don't remember the anime end as well, but I thought it interesting that Aoi grew out her hair and almost looks like Faina while remaining steady with Kouji. To be fair, Hiraiface and black and white pages only gave that illusion.
She doesn't look like Faina at all, maybe its the hiraiface.
Manga, anon. Manga.
But now that you have a screencap of the end, I remember it.
I still find it weird that many of them were assigned back to the Ryvius for whatever reason though. I would have thought they'd be assigned somewhere else, while the recovered Ryvius is then updated and manned by older and more experienced personnel.
They were recruited specially for the Ryvius since the ship refused to activate after they were rescued and the children were more or less sane.
Now that part I legitimately forgot/missed (don't even remember whihc). I just remember most everyone returned, with Aoi being concerned about running into Faina again.
Doujins of Neya NTR'ing or cheating with Kouji never; on the other side, no doujins of extended passionate Kouji/Aoi sex.
The kids had the best experience compared to past crews. Specifically, their Sphix matured the most successfully out of all of the fleet, which is amazing considering the stress the kids were under.
Essentially, they bonded with the ship and that makes them the most qualified to be the official crew of the Ryvius. And that was something that really peeved Kouji off when he was asked to be part of the crew; it wasn't exactly a fun time being stranded in space like that, and this is the token nice guy milquetoast who's getting pissed off here!
