About 2 weeks for the next chapter. ch63 was a mess I can't wait for the resolution.
I waited for the anime to finish before marathoning it. Think they're going to go back to show the asteroid battle where the formation of benisuzume clones was pushing it? Or was that later?
Any moonrune speakers in here who can elucidate any possible double-meanings or connotations in the Japanese for "Sidonia?" We determined in the last thread that it was definitely named for the IRL asteroid (which is about as large as the story portrays), but the choice certainly couldn't have been arbitrary!
Also, has anyone worked out how the Higgs cannons and the GBE compare?
The ring of Beni clones was the start of Izana's first sortie, so they'll probably end up skipping it entirely and have Izana lose her limbs some other way.
I thought it would have been the immortal dudes doing that. Kobayashi seemed cool.
Hey, is telling Japanese names apart and associating them with the character at a glance something you can learn as you read more manga or watch more anime, or is it developmental? I swear, anyone not named Izana and Nagate I have to look up. Why can't they just translate them into "Joe" and "Lucy."
How large is that asteroid? The only "physical characteristic" wikipedia lists is absolute magnitude, which is some unitless quantity that I know nothing about, and the article it linked to was beyond me.
I know what you and other anon were talking about but I'm not sure they're Beni's clones.
Every single Hishijiro + Guardian clone died pretty soon. Only in Benisuzume's case gaunas did something differently and she was hard to deal with.
How do you explain that aside from "Hoshijiro's consciousness was retained" ?
If it was as simple as just copying and pasting, you'd think every single clone would be just as effective as the original.
>ch63 was a mess
Go read Tenjou Tenge or something you dumb cow.
>causing a mess
>being a mess
Sure is summer.
>was a mess
The chapter itself was not a mess. It was a normal service beach episode. Yuhata was nervous about the upcoming battle, Izana was jelly as usual, Kobayashi being Kobayashi, and Tsumugi having fun for the first time in the residential area. The whole mess was on boards and because some Chinese guys were posting shit out of context.
Whining that she barely started the Nagatebowl and somebody already won it.
It's the standard fare response. "I-it was out of context!" No it fucking wasn't, and I will beat up anybody who seriously thinks that.
The moral of the story
Don't fucking kill stag beetles. One day they may go kabizashi on our asses.
>still not paying any attention to /m/'s translation thread
I somehow get the feeling we won't get much of a resolution from Ch.64.
The beetle's gonna draw the suffering out for us.
I hope it doesn't happen again, because that would mean something worth leaking just happened.
This then begs the question, then what was their attempt with Shou trying to accomplish?
How was it so different from Beni?
The 'human' part had main body inside.
In Beni's case the main body was in Guardian copy and the pilot copy was just a placenta.
Once gaunas get the hang of miniaturization they'll be able to produce perfect infiltrators.
>Ignoring the war council that revealed another GBE and two more warships
>Ignoring Toxine potentially spying on Kobayashi the whole time.
>Ignoring Kobayashi singing for everyone on Sidonia.
>yfw Izana's ass is one of Sidonia's 100 Great Sights
>the ass of a cute girl
You mean the shitposters? The chapter caused a mess and invited them here.We have had a few calm threads but it will probably escalate now when we get closer to next chapter release.
Izana's grandma is best immortal though, followed by Lala.
You're a girl in my heart.
You're also a girl in the future.
Homosexuality is defined as attraction to the same sex. To keep things simple, assume attraction to the third gender is heterosexual, as in SnK's case, they turn into the opposite gender of whoever they're attracted to anyway so it all works out.
Assuming that it's mutual, yes. If they end up liking a girl and it in turn becomes a guy, then it would be gay because it's no longer an it, but a he.
Izana for example isn't 3rd gender anymore, it's a she because it developed primary and secondary female sexual characteristics (developed breasts, female genitalia, probably wider hips, etc.). 3rd genders probably have undeveloped fetus genitalia (which can be seen here: http://www.babycenter.com/2_inside-pregnancy-girl-or-boy_10313041.bc) and lack most sexual characteristics.
so, the question is unanswered. if a person is attracted to specifically thirdsex, call it a fetish, an not to those of a standard gender, would have to have a new -sexual created for them, probably
Can we get a high-res/wallpaper dump going? I don't have much.
I'd call it heterosexual simply because "hetero" as a prefix means "different" or "other" and sexual in this case means "physical attraction to," though, heterosexuality is defined as "attraction to the OPPOSITE sex," so either the definition itself has to be changed or like you said, there would have to be a new kind of -sexual applied to an attraction to the 3rd gender.
How many dicks has the Captain sucked by now?
Doesn't have to be wallpaper-sized necessarily. Just big enough to make wallpapers out of them.
I don't think I could handle to see the suffering again but this time in animated form
Man, Izana looks a lot like Arisu in that panel.
I won't argue that it has some sort of intelligence, but a lot of people thinking way too much that it has Special Reason to do what it does.
Considering trajectory calculation and ambush plans, well, that came from humans they consumed, I think it was obvious.
You know what would be morbid, if the consumption of humans by the gauna not only gave it insight of how we are thinking, but also some of our traits like curiosity and greed or forced it to evolve reasoning or something alike, making it crave more humans to fill up that void it created.
Someone important is going to die that's for sure, question is who?
As of now in the manga it's not even close to possible. The body switching seems to be them transfering the brain to the new body and Tsumugi's brain is, well, we don't know about it. And if you are going to point towards Ochiai keep in mind that he is currently down for the count and not working on his end goal.
If this is the alternate angle for Episode 5, I am going ape shit with rage.
Because Netflix, you just said.
And nothing is wrong with being babby's first media format. Watchmen is babby's first comic and it's one of the best works of the form. I catch something new every time I read it.
Although thinking about it I do wonder if everything he does after this will be marketed in the West as "from the man who brought you Knights of Sidonia!" which is a little deceptive, seeing the massive dissimilarities in tone between the manga and the anime.
Why the fuck do people comparing this to Evangelion? The ONLY similarities it has is being a giant robot series with powerful aliens as the enemies, which only describes 10 000 other giant robot series, and having human alien hybrids, but the chimeras are nothing like the evas at all.
Because Evangelion and DBZ are the only anime which Millennials really know of.
"Together" surprised me because it's not on any list of loan words and they certainly have a word for such a basic concept. Also, I keep hearing them pronounce the name "Shidonia," so why is it translated "Sidonia?" Is it like the Spanish "v" being between our "v" and our "b," where Japanese's "s" is between our "s" and our "sh?"
Doesn't "Millennials" extend to people born in the 80's? Those are already 30+yo dads, and the ones interested in animu tend to know good stuff.
Hell even ones not interested, a cousin of mine saw Mazinger reruns on latino TV and that's all he knows of anime.
That's pretty much it. English sibilants are usually just pronounced as "shi" in Japanese.
The only proper equivalent for the "si" pronunciation is ??, but this is pretty much exclusive for transliterated foreign words or onomatopoeia.
Was anyone able to get their hands on the "Knights of Sidonia Official Settings Material" that came out a month ago. AmiAmi sold out of copies soon after it was put up for preorder, and no other store has it listed. Tried looking everywhere but can't find it.
Some Jap retailers like animate and gamers appear to have some in stock.
Just an observation though, all the pages appear to be pure grey-scale except for the cover pages.
>make it in human-shaped
>Blend in within a population of 500,000 residents
Well, that's a new source of worry in itself.
I think it took 8 days to gather enough pilots who were willing to risk themselves for severe punishments and maybe death along the way to go for an unauthorized rescue mission.
Some scene designs, apparently. Not sure about the rest.
Guess you'll just have to keep it a surprise for when you get it.
The TV presenter mentioned how it was Nagate and Hoshijiro's return after three weeks.
She also mentions how they were adrift for 11 days.
If the Guardian team went after the pair immediately after the battle, it's kind of difficult to think it taking an entire 11 days, even with the continuous momentum by N & H.
I would imagine they had some argument for a few days back in Sidonia over whether they should go out there or not, then boosted out, leaving trails of small relaying elements along the way.
And since Sidonia kept moving on and adding distance, the return trip ended up taking longer, lasting 10 days.
Imagine getting crammed in a guardian cockpit for 21 days, of which 10 with Tsuruuchi.
M3. It was shit. Okada was siphoning all her creativity into writing a card game anime (which honestly is also pretty fucked up in its own right).
Being too tall actually causes medical problems
There are height limits for fighter pilots
Short people can lift easier, and have less stress on their bodies.
Stop supporting stupid female hormones causing the decline of the human race.
>Inb4 mad shortfag
Nope, dream of being a fighter pilot died before it even began because of height limits
Nope, calling it now, all these deathflags for tsmoog are a red herring, Izana dies in battle, Yuhata, stricken by grief, gets drunk and wakes up next to Teruru, and realizes her robot fetish
Seriously though, Nihei wouldn't do this, right? He pulled the Yuhata surprise confession card to facilitate good ending for everyone, right? ;_;
>Yuhata surprise confession
Didn't we agree that this is wrong?
Is this the first time that best girl and best boy was the same character?
I like Sidonia
The character's are pretty interesting
And I like how the MC wasn't just given his skills or had some bullshit natural affinity, and he actually worked on them in the old simulator for his entire life and he was actually shit in the new model
Totally random story, but looks like Nihei's twitter account was briefly hacked/hijacked.
If every character who was friendly with another wanted to fuck, we wouldn't be in this bloody situation now would we?
An interesting article on Polygon and their Sidonia project. It's more to do with their production workflow and industrial outlook, and it's only in Jap, but here's a link for those who read moon.
One particularly interesting point was that Sidonia was completed and delivered a whole two months ahead of the airing date, which the PPI prez says is standard for non-Japanese productions.
Probably played for laugh but they are sporadically there.
>All Guardian sorties are mass orgies
>Izana can give the best sex ever with her robotic hand
But there's a statistically significant correlation between height and intelligent, and height won't cause physical problems until you get like over seven feet.
>Short people can lift easier, and have less stress on their bodies.
So they're better manual laborers. That's why labor class Mexicans and Asians are short and middle class and upper class Whitey is tall.
I love Nagate's reaction.
Yeah, just like we AGREED that 9/11 was a hoax, and the holocaust didn't happen, and the sky is green.
You maybe got one other faggot to shitpost with you while everyone else ignored you trying to contradict the blatantly obvious.
Needs to be cleaned and all but here.
>mfw high speed mech dogfights
blessed Polygon, they know how to allocate budget.
We didn't get source on it but they penny pinched the first season pretty hard just to see if they could survive on a regular anime budget. So next season might have a notable higher budget going into it.
Somebody needs to Chaika this
Someone should update this chart.
I know that they've already planned the tree scene, there was a picture posted of props that they have done and Nagate was wearing a jetpack.
Kanata is back and ready to break the space princess.
how the fuck do they know Toxine's true form? last time I checked they still thought she was still Kunato's sidekick then
