Let me get some'a that Chain.
Kekkai Sensen thread.
Holy shit I just realized the reason nobody calls him out for having his eyes closed is because it's a deconstruction of Japanese characters having white eyes, faces, skin, etc in anime but in this one everyone excepts him to be a squinty eyed jap
Then he opened his eyes and he gade God Eyes - i.e. huge blue eyes, categorical definition of white people
>Holy shit I just realized the reason nobody calls him out for having his eyes closed is because it's a deconstruction of Japanese characters having white eyes, faces, skin, etc in anime but in this one everyone excepts him to be a squinty eyed jap
I just figured nobody really gave a shit if this kid had his eyes closed in a city with aliens and all.
I thought it was just a subversion of that one character in like every anime/manga that keeps their eyes shut all the time- except this time, that character is the protagonist and has a reason for his eyes being shut.
I just realized, it's already a fourth of the way over.
Please never stop abusing Zapp in hilarious ways; it's wonderful.
I can't believe there were actually anons in past threads complaining about Kobayuu. Her delivery of "shinee!" when the two of them were bickering in the first episode slayed me.
He is flawless, especially in this role.
Give the radio show a listen. It was disconcerting at first to hear him talking about wanting to drink beer and making risque jokes in Klaus's voice, but I love it now.
Yeah, it did. They cut the entirety of the intro which made it a bit awkward.
I'm actually worried about future episodes where they end the episode in a serious note then suddenly PARTY TIME!!!
In general Zapps interactions with other characters, from being bullied to bullying Leo and casually shrugging off rules, are all great. He's a fun character.
It feels different because they didn't work the instrumental lead-in that opens the song into the last few seconds of the episode like they did with 2. It's better that way, but it's not really major enough to bother me.
It actually might be sort of a subversion of that archetype, considering that eyes-always-closed characters these days are so often smug as fuck and either a genius or a barely contained can of whoopass. It's neat having one who's a low-key normal guy.
Plus yeah, he's cute as all get out.
Zapp is a
The amount of fanart for this show already and the speed at which it's produced is fucking awesome.
>Oda also likes the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Considering the designs of a lot of his characters, and how much he loves over-the-top stuff in general, I don't doubt this at all.
>you're the only one whose name Japanese fans misspell
Sucks to be Zapp.
I thought it was strange you renamed a pixiv image, but then I noticed the resolution wasn't correct. You should avoid saving resized pixiv images. The difference this time is minimal, but sometimes it isn't.
Can't stop listening to Hello, world!, send help.
Actually, never mind.
It's kind of funny how after stepping on Leo the first time they met, Zapp was subsequently stepped on himself over and over again. Karma will always get your ass back.
Zapp isn't stepped on because he stepped on Leo, it's the other way around. Years of being stepped on has given him the desire to step on everybody he has the chance to step on.
Wait, this show is popular in Nipland?
I didn't know they liked this type of shit. (AKA actual fun and stylish anime with great characters and animation)
I wrote this off as one of the anime that'd bomb super hard in Japan.
Once in a while Japan likes a good anime. Look at Shirobako.
This. It's probably true that Zapp was at the bottom of the Libra pecking order before Leo showed up. He's just really happy that he has someone that he can slap around a little in between their no homo brotimes.
The owner won the lottery, didn't give a fuck about the tenants anymore so he sold it to a tourism group and everyone got thrown under the bus as a result.
illegal in burgerland
Yeah, no. Stop with your stupid muh white power.
Poor Leo. Judging from the cardboard boxes, he wasn't even done moving yet.
And does this mean Leo wears tightie whities?
He also masturbated into two different socks. Same pair though, looks like.
Aren't those paper? Maybe more rejected attempts at letters to Michella? One is crumpled into a ball and the other one he tried to fold into a crane but messed it up.
Or maybe I just want to believe that Leo is even more adorably terrible at origami than me.
Aaah, Boner Magazine, the choice of discerning gentleman everywhere.
I'll bet I know who has a lifetime subscription.
If there is no chapter in the manga where following this Leo crashes on Zapp's couch until he finds a new place to live, it's a crying shame.
Okay then smart anon, you tell us what kind of underwear Leo wears.
It's hard to tell because it's such a clean cut, but I guess they have the technology to do something like that.
>Leo crashes on Zapp's couch
>chats and makes casual friends with Zapp's regulars in the morning before he leaves
Guys I'm so confused, what the fuck happened to New york? What are these worlds? Is the world of the last episode underground or in the mist, what even is the mist?
I can't even enjoy the battles because I'm trying to search for an explanation, should I just read the source material?
>cooks breakfast for everyone
>girls keep coming over, even when Zapp's trying to bang a different one, even after they've broken it off, just to eat Leo's food and hang out with him
Until finally Zapp throws him out because Leo is ruining his swerve. (And also, he's jealous.)
theres normal new york where chill aliens and humans get along
then theres outer new york where the aliens that cant get along with humans hang out
then theres the other dimension where all the aliens are from
at least that is what I got from it
Watch the first episode again, anon. It's more rewarding on repeat viewings anyway. You can play 'spot the Trigun reference'.
I imagine that they're always on, but given what they can do, he can 'see' with his eyes closed perfectly fine enough to get around. It's just when he opens them that he can really see into the nitty gritty of things and use his powers.
I imagine as a result it's actually more comfortable to keep his eyes closed by default.
His eyes are actually closed though. He only really opens them when he needs to use his powers.
It wouldn't make much sense for him to just be widening his eyes to use his powers. He has them closed.
Except it makes a point of showing that no one else can see his All-Seeing God Eyes until he "opens" them. It seems obvious that they're actually closed since them being closed is pretty much a plot point.
And a person walking around in public, having conversations with others, driving on the road and otherwise living his life with his eyes closed 24/7 is entirely inconspicuous, right?
In a world full of superpowers and whatever those demon niggas were I wouldn't be surprised.
I wonder if he can see things normally through pictures/the camera, it could be another reason why he likes it even though he liked it before he got the eyes. Not to mention the dude with holes for a face could see just fine apparently. He definitely saw Klaus giant blood cross coming for his ass
His expressions, for one.
He winks narrows/opens his eyes. Every time he opens his eyes his powers seem to be on full blast.
Not much more than squinting like a motherfucker, which wouldn't help anyway since the person would be able to tell that his eyes are fucked up.
If we're talking about what makes sense here, closed eyes would probably be way less unusual than his eyes normally--which several characters are stunned right off the bat and know what they are upon seeing them.
It ain't a big deal in a place like HL. The All-Seeing Eyes of the Gods, on the other hand, are an incredibly well-known and sought after artifact/power that people would kill to get a hold of.
I think the alterworld is in the center of the mist and the regular new york is sort of along the outside. Is it even a circular area that's affected? Maybe it's more like a wall
That adds up to 100% perfect.
Why are kek threads the best threads? Is it because it's the
A portal to another dimension opened up in the center of the city. The fog flows from it and is thicker closer to the portal. Peeps from that dimension now live in New York, like some horrific transdimensional melting pot.
It's that cute little bouncy dance with his hands in his coat pockets that he does during the ED that's the best.
but the threads sure are.
And expect a tidal wave of doujinshi. Man, if Nightow was perplexed by the popularity of Wolfwood/Vash back in Trigun's heyday as he was rumored to be, he'd better prepare himself now, because he ain't seen nothin' yet.
>perplexed by the popularity of Wolfwood/Vash back in the day
this shouldn't be as funny as it is
It's been a lot of fun since the majority of shitposters cleared out, knock on wood. Thank DanMachi and Euphonium for distracting them.
And please tell me you know what Twitter that came from, because hot dayum.
>not talking about fine werewolf booty
>or leather MILF hotpants
>or GHOST BLOWJOB
Put up or quit shiposting and shut up.
You can still talk about it while fujoshi post, you know.
Arlsan is so fucking gay and I haven't even been keeping up with it, I could barely focus on the first episode without feeling sour to the idea of all the shota doujins it would spawn.
That disinterested-yet-mysterious demeanor paired with the all-business plainjane look and a sharp tongue. She's got a girl's cuteness, a lady's beauty and a woman's wit.
>draws fujo art and makes it public
>draws voluptuous bishoujo art and makes it private
Is she afraid people will find out she's based? Also, fuck me; I still can't into filenames.
>I'm not even sure what archetype her character is supposed to be
Okay, I take back what I said. This show isn't for you; you can go.
Pretty much. Not only that, the guy she wants to bang also looks like Wolfwood.
I don't know if there's a name for this, but I think it's my new fetish.
I'm a fujoshi and I approve of this message.
This show is packed wall to wall with fine bitches. If you can't appreciate them all, it's your loss.
Hmm, I have no clue. I would assume so, because HL is still technically America, it just had another reality superimposed on it. The aliens are merely immigrants from Alterworld.
>It'd be interesting if there's an exchange between human and non-human currency.
If Libra didn't pan out for Leo maybe he could have tried forex next.
He doesn't have capital so he might not even make it to the door. Construction seems to be the big one with everything getting wrecked every now and then. I still don't get why would anyone hire a human over the other bigger non-humans though.
Character profile for the next guest character is up.
Voice will be by
Libra seems like a vigilante group that keeps the balance in this fucked up place, but that's sort of happening in the background. I feel like the real plot is about Leo and doing whatever he needs to do involving his sister
>He doesn't have capital
Vivian likes him; maybe she'd lend him the startup. Plus he has a monkey now. After a month or so as an organ grinder in Central Park and letting tourists take Polaroids with Sonic for five bucks, he'd probably have made a fair bit.
Or he could just pimp Zapp out.
I'd hire a normal human over a demi-human based on finesse, qualifications and the ability to communicate. It's quite one thing to be able to benchpress a skyscraper, but another to be able to listen to and understand complex instructions. Hell getting backpackers and chinks to do simple work
fruit pickingis one hell of an ordeal without a good translator. Throw literal non-humanity into the pot and you may have spoiled the soup.
Yes. First episode was a bit rushed, otherwise it's all cool.
What do you mean by everything? Everything that's out so far? Impossible, there's 10 volumes out there, best case scenario is what they're doing now - 2 eps per volume. So we'll most likely see volume 5 adaptation and then 2 eps of original content at the end.
>not using Sonic to pick pockets
It already knows how to steal things. Just teach it to steal the shiny ones.
They can speak just fine. I was expecting to see non-humans who can't speak human languages.
Did the manga mention anything about screening non-humans who try to go to HL to pass some kind of language proficiency test?
