Synopsis for Episode 7
>Let's Go Past the Sky and the Stars
>Superhuman Judas, or Hikaru Misumi, was part of the armed robbery group Diamond Eater, but had a change of heart after being defeated by Human Satellite Earth-chan. After being released from prison, Hikaru is registered in the Superhuman Bureau, and decides to protect the activities of young people like him. However, the extreme actions of Earth-chan, who reacts to the brain waves of people calling for help, become recognized by society as absolute justice. During the student protest at Haneda Airport against Japan's participation in the Earth Defense Corps, Earth-chan appears while she is guarding the Prime Minister.
I thought Gigander 7 was just a random mecha parody, but then i saw this in a thread yesterday. Go figure
Rejoice. Not too many timelines appearing.
>Shinka 42, October (1967)
Emi and Ullr are talking about Kikko, and her mission on this plane of reality. They happen to gaze upon Earth-chan, who is racing through the sky, helping every living being she can, because that is how perfect she is. Earth-chan was built to derive pleasure and be sustained by all those who seek her help.
>Shinka 47, April (1972)
Megasshin, Jirou, and Judas are breaking into the Ikuta Laboratory Annex to free the deactivated Earth-chan. Judas promises to make Earth-chan a normal girl.
To love Earth-chan is to never regret.
I want to bully earth-chan
Is there anything Earth-chan can't do?
Yes. She cannot lie.
Yeah, this will suck for scratching your back.
The Superhuman Bureau wants Japan to become part of the Earth Defense Corps, so they're trying to get Earth-Chan to protect Japan's prime minister. Many youth and student protests are however against Japan joining the Earth Defense Corps.
Earth-chan is such a powerful symbol of Truth and Justice everyone trusts absolutely that if she were to openly protect the prime minister, everyone would be persuaded that this would be the right course of action.
So, the Bureau wanted to use Earth-Chan as a symbol of legitimization.
That little Earth-Chan soap spender.
>The Superhuman Bureau wants Japan to become part of the Earth Defense Corps, so they're trying to get Earth-Chan to protect Japan's prime minister. Many youth and student protests are however against Japan joining the Earth Defense Corps.
So is this another anime sponsored by the LDP?
Any guesses what they're planning? This is all moving very fast.
America treats their space kaijuus as weapons instead of living beings.
Only Earth-chan would genuinely try to understand them and not see them being further used as living weapons of mass destruction that everyone fears and hates.
Do not steal.
Something about this episode and Earth-chan that made me really enjoy it.
Also with all these short future reveals, I'm so eager to see Jirou realise the truth and how things play out in the future.
>Dumb humans, cartoons have rights too
Being a bad guy is just a job for some people.
Blondie is a cutie.
We also get to see Hoshimura-san fighting against the leader of the Diamond Eater Gang.
I would trust that guy.
This will be a joy for /m/ and /a/ to look which old Japanese cartoon these characters represent.
Judas loves Earth-chan. Will Earth-chan ever return Judas's feelings, or will it also be unrequited love?
Space. The final frontier.
Being a normal girl with a family might be what Earth-chan truly longs for.
A sweet lie.
May you dream of cute robot sheep, Sputnik-chan.
Who will win the Jirou-bowl?
Will it be youkai princess Emi, or
Devilwitch princess Kikko?
Living the dream.
Torture what? Will this be explained later or did I miss something?
I want to protect this smile.
3 boys > 2 girls
Hence, they are a boys team.
Need more dakka.
I want to ____ Earth-chan
Earth-chan in satellite mode is adorably cute in a chubby way.
Seems that episode 7 was well-received according to the Conrevo twitter.
You're definitely better off just dropping it.
I hope Earth-chan doesn't die.
Does this count as brainwash?
>And what is Master Ultima
A superscientist who is also an alien-human hybrid .
No, I think the whole point of this show is that Heroes of Justice are all morons obeying the agenda of corrupt government bureaucrats who also happen to be alien parasites.
Gross Augen was humanity's only friend, since he kept kicking them back out into space.
>Is there any one in the show who is pure?
>kills innocent kaijuus
So Becky turned herself into an android to help people in the future?
>Voiced by Tokuyoshi Kawashima
>In his late 30s, this highly experienced member of the Superhuman Bureau plays a supportive role and is looked up to by the main characters. A man of few words, he’s handsome but can be very cynical. He has the ability to transform into a beast with leopard-like limbs, but how he came to be is unknown. In addition, he has the ability to manipulate time, such as stopping or reversing it.
Why can't humans simply do the right thing all the time?
So the superhuman bureau was throwing their support behind the EDC. Does this mean that they're focusing on painting evil aliens as the bad guys now? And they wanted Earth-chan to support the EDC to reinforce that image even more?
Because they are flawed, their hearts are weak, they doubt others, they don't always understand each other, and they need lies to keep living, but even so... I think humans are beautiful! I hope that one day you too can become beautiful, Earth-chan.
Fucking great episode
It's just a really shitty translation choice. She said 苦しめる, which means "to torment; to harass; to inflict pain; to hurt; to cause (emotional) pain". What exactly Earth-chan was implied to be made for is unknown, but it's probably not as specific as torture.
>Her mascot seems to be QB v.2.0
And it seems like Jirou suspects this somehow.
Funi translated it as hurt
They were probably implying that since she's programmed to feel good when people ask for her help, she needs people being hurt in order to feel good. I mean, in an ideal world where no one was hurt, no one would ask for her help and she woulddn't be left without a purpose.
Kikko mustn't ever love anybody. But everybody must love Kikko, so that she will become even stronger and be fit to rule
and bring back the souls of everyone who feels gratitude to Hoshinoko back to her home dimension
Ullr will make sure of that.
Kikko's love must remain unrequited.
Literally forbidden love.
That was a really good episode.
Earth-chan is adorable.
>that after-ED scene
You might wanna ask Hoshinoko about that.
Don't forget to thank her when she helps you.
If Jiro's call for justice in the future is truly sincere, then she probably would see him as right, and side with him. Either that or dreaming will allow her to become more human and allow her to form her own idea of what is truly just, and decide to side with him and Judas herself.
That's most likely.
Essentially Earth-chan is a robot that's designed to hurt people so that they beg for help and it'd get off on those brainwaves.
Shit's getting twisted and fast.
Gotta love Japanese animu logic.
Say you're taking a leasurely bath when you realize your coworker from the opposite gender has somehow sneaked inside your house.
Suprised and embarrasssed, you...
JUMP INTO THE ROOM WITH NOTHING BUT A TOWEL ON
>Insert Song: "Bam Bam Bam"
Her hands were rusty. We didn't see anything else.
They really look like a chuuni evil organization now. Complete with the robot sidekick
A creepy one at that
>somebody was paid for this translation
Ulr says that he "won't use the word akuma, but (...)", implying she is indeed an akuma.
Akuma is a word associated with devils, satan and evil witches (the dead child eating, black clothed kind)
>On October 8, 1967, activists in this Three-Faction Alliance, Sanpa Zengakuren,
attempted to forcibly prevent Prime Minister Sato Eisaku’s departure from Haneda Airport for Saigon, part of his second tour of Southeast Asia. Helmeted Sanpa members armed with lengths of timber and rocks fought riot police [kidotai], who were outfitted with their standard meter-long truncheons, duralumin shields,
visored helmets, tear gas guns, water cannons, and armored vehicles. On the three bridges that provided access to the airport, both sides also made aggressive use of the security forces’ bus-sized vehicles. During the fighting on Bentenbashi Bridge, where most of the members of the Nucleus Faction, Chukaku-ha, were initially concentrated, a Kyoto University student named Yamazaki Hiroaki was killed by one of these vehicles, said to have been driven by a fellow student. In the end, the prime minister departed for Saigon as planned; official figures indicated some 600 police and 100 student injuries, and some 50 arrests.
Aw shit, and her true nature? Damn.
Somehow I feel like Jirou is unaware of this whole "boyfriend" thing.
>a Kyoto University student named Yamazaki Hiroaki was killed by one of these vehicles
>that one guy who died this episode
No wonder they did a close-up to the blood.
>that OST at the end of the episode
Emi has been living under Prof. Hitoyoshi's guard as his "assistant" since forever apparently. Jirou it Prof. Hitoyoshi's adopted kid.
While it's possible they're really dating and doing the deed under the same roof, it's also possible that they simply live under the same roof due to their life circumstances. It's not clear.
On no occasion so far have we seen Jirou being particularly affectionate towards Emi other than seeing him blushing when she gets all touchy-feely.
She's a sneaky bitch, she could be making all this shit up for her own fantasy pleasure for all we know.
Not if Earth-chan does it. Then it's objectively the correct and right thing to do.
Earth-chan is never wrong. Period.
No. All those factory workers now know that their work place was bad, and that they should simply search for a new job.
Them's fighting words, son.
If they genuinely call for an SOS, she will receive their brainwaves and help them find a job.
>Earth-chan helps by filling the unemployment papers
There, job done.
Thank you, Earth-chan.
Didn't she save the bird? Also
>Caring about the money of EVIL corporations
You need a lesson, a lesson of Justice.
>Kikko wanted to be honest and tell Earth-chan her true nature
>Judas refused to and lied to Earth-chan
Another example of the fuckload of times lieing has been shown to be the right thing to do..
LIE FOR the sake of others!
Kant would shake his head..
>JUSTICE getting fucked over every other week.
The bureau done it again.
According to wikipedia regarding Ullr.
>In early Germanic paganism, *Wulþuz ("glory"; Old Norse Ullr) appears to have been a major god, or an epithet of an important god, in prehistoric times.
>The term wolþu- "glory", possibly in reference to the god, is attested on the 3rd century Thorsberg chape (as owlþu-), and there are many placenames in Ullr and a related name, Ullinn, but medieval Icelandic sources have only sparse material on the god Ullr. The medieval Norse word was Latinized as Ollerus. The Modern Icelandic form is Ullur. In the mainland Scandinavian languages the modern form is Ull.
>The Old English cognate wuldor means "glory" but is not used as a proper name, although it figures frequently in kennings for the Christian God such as wuldres cyning "king of glory", wuldorfæder "glory-father" or wuldor alwealda "glorious all-ruler".
Not telling her would protect her.
Kikko telling her the truth would probably hurt her but it was going to be a shock to her so as she stops dealing with absolutes. In the end she did learn her lesson through a combination of Judas words and the dreaming candy
>you will never be a blind girl holding a scale and a sword who is the anthropomorphic representation of a concept
Here's Megasshin from episode 3 to clear up any misunderstandings
Jirou now has a team of an outlaw lightning chuuni and a tranny robot.
I thought emi might be good after all but after this episode she is totally a two-faced bitch.
Earth-chan is cute!
>Literally cartoonish furry characters
Man, living in a superhero world really must be fun.
The stinger scene is two months after the episode 3 future timeline. Raito's probably dead or completely disabled by now considering how the episode 3 cliffhanger was basically a 2 vs. 1 fight.
>All in the same room with each other
>Just having casual conversations
That place sounds great. Imagine just having a casual conversation with your nemesis. No grudges, no good vs. evil, just getting buddy buddy and having a good time
Like that looney toons episode
Not only that, but the ED is excellent. Why on earth would someone skip it?
>attacking cafe full of superhumans
No. Free the kaijuus, and let them roam around the world. They're harmless monsters.
>somebody yelling nonsense in the background while Earth-chan accused Judas of doing something bad again.
It would be so much easier if humans simply decided to be perfect.
Oh, BL stands for Boys of Light.
>Murdered by criminals, Detective Yokoda's body is retrieved by Professor Tani and taken to his laboratory. There, Tani performs an experiment that has failed seven times; Yokoda is the latest subject to have his life force transferred into an android body. For the first time, the experiment succeeds. Yokoda is reborn as the armor-skinned android 8 Man, able to dash at impossible speeds, as well as shape-shift into other people. He shifts himself into Yokoda, this time christening himself as "Hachiro Azuma". He keeps this identity a secret, known only to Tani and his police boss Chief Tanaka. Even his girlfriend Sachiko and friend Ichiro do not know he is an android. As 8-Man, Hachiro fights crime (even bringing his own murderers to justice). He smokes "energy" cigarettes, to rejuvenate his powers, that he carries in a cigarette case on his belt.
This looks like it. Thanks.
Don't call him a robot. He's totally a human. He just happens to be a dead guy whose mind was digitized and transferred into a machine body.
My guess is that most of the victims will be supers.
They have limited rights, and their plight will not be covered in official media.
Perhaps Japan will sign some kind of super drafting act for the Earth Defense Corp, and all those supers must fight evil spacemen, and they die horribly against giant space monsters, "S" Planetarians, and other weird invaders.
And then nobody will be allowed to talk about their sacrifices, or they'll be censored.
They are building up toward two endings at the same time.
First one is what happened that caused jiro to betray the bureau, and I am hoping this is the ending to season 1.
Second one is the final conclusion after jiro finished building his superhero team and fights the bureau/government, hopefully at the end of s2
How about a USA attack with their superheroes vs Japan?
Jirou is forced to kill superheroes in order to save other ones, then the Bureau makes some dirty play in which Jirou takes part and some superheroes die.
After he realizes how corrupted they are, Jirou decides to defeat the Bureau with his justice league.
Because they can, because it stirrs up the narrative, because it can turn a dull story into an artificially interesting one, because it makes people come back to see what happened between point A and point Z, etc.
Well, the people who mostly talk about this show are of course those who are fans of it.
The question you will have to answer for yourself is, do you like Watchmen: The Anime?
Featuring all kinds of Japanese superhero types, from magical girls, to robot detectives, half-human monster girls, androids, detective kids who are supported by super robots, cartoonish furries, ultra-chuunis, and other things.
Also, its setting is set around 1967-1972. If you're a nostalgiafag who likes old retrostuff, you might enjoy Conrevo even more.
As you might have perhaps read, one of the very distinctive elements of Concrete Revolutio is that it makes use of flashforwards and flashbacks in an episode.
Some do find it quite confusing.
As for the technical levels of the show itself, it's of course on a very high level. Also, cute girls, cute boys, interesting setting for sure.
Try out episode 1-3 for sure. Episode 2 has way less action than episode 1 or 3, but it's still kinda interesting.
Yea, buy filters or/and modernize your factory.
Either that or Earth-chan will destro-.... ekhm... make you see the right way every time you rebuild it.
It's not very cost-efficient to be a bad guy, eh?
>that soothing OST at the end for Earth-chan
I want to protect Earth-chan!
I want to protect this smile.
Next episode will feature Boys of Light, and it will deal with the legacy left behind by 1950s superhero Rainbow Knight.
Rainbow Knight looks to be obviously inspired by the superhero Gekko Kamen (Moonlight Mask).
>I heard you're going to do something that will get you caught by the police
>mfw that guy who shouts nonsense
>Earth-chan was created to hurt people
Damn, didn't see that coming. I like her, I'd watch a whole series about her knockoff Astroboy shenanigans. Also, it looks like Jiro has amassed a few more heroes. I kinda hope the 2nd cour deals entirely with the future and what happens while we get more back-and-forth here between pre and post defection Jiro.
Also Kikko a shit
Prevents soap getting into the eyes.
C U T E
Pretty good episode. When i first saw earth-chan i thought it was a boy.
I just love Kikko's goofy space helmet.
Although, shouldn't she also wear space clothes?
A full body space suit is mostly just there to get a good seal for the helmet and to prevent overheating (because space actually feels pretty damn hot, especially in the sun).
