Can no longer post in the previous one, so...
If Chika still refuses to shoot people and Osamu decides not utilize that Bagworm like he should've done in the last match, then yes, that's exactly what's going to happen in the next chapter.
I don't think so.
Quite long till the last break.
I love how one of the enemies stole Osamus sweatdrop and he himself is looks pretty confident in that last page though.
TII's current opponents look like complete jobbers
While I wouldn't mind another super salt fest I think TII is scheduled to a victory on par with their match against Suwa and Arafune
Katori's squad got a ton of death flags ever since they were introduced.
I'm hoping Kakizaki squad doesn't do too bad though, I've been looking forward for a proper introduction for them ever since the Afto Invasion arc.
If it's an opioid, he just needs to be careful that he only takes what he needs for his pain
If it's just one of those nerve pain meds then he'll be fine if he takes the stuff as directed
My little World Trigger can't possibly be this popular to get a consecutive thread so fast right after the last one hit the bump limit.
Red marks highest value in category.
Blue marks lowest.
I predict the two other Katori Unit members are going to job the hardest, possibly get wrecked by Osamu's Spider. Kakizaki Unit is cautious so they might not fall for Osamu's traps, quite possibly taking him out when he drops his guard. Not sure what will happen next though. Kakizaki Unit all have high values so Kuga is going to have to work extra hard. And then there's Katori herself, who I hope we'll get to see some sweet ass shots of, both literally and figuratively.
>Kakizaki Unit is cautious so they might not fall for Osamu's traps
>Osamu spawns dud Spider traps EVERYWHERE
>Kakizaki squad thinks they're full of DANGER and flips the fuck out
This is gonna be fun.
What exactly does the "Special Tactics" imply? Trick moves like the grasshopper feint and super slow Asteroid field?
Was waiting for someone to make a thread but then went "fuck it" and made it myself.
Since we haven't seen anything from Katori's team yet, and unlike Kageura/Ninomiya squads they aren't hyped up to be that strong atm, I'm expecting them to fail in general and have horrible teamwork. And this battle will basically be the loss they learn from (Izumi and Tokieda are commenting, who are 'experts' on teamwork strategies so there will be some good advice incoming).
For Kakizaki squad, if Spider fails then there's always Black Lightning.
Special Tactics seem to be referring to the surprising factor, like the higher the value is the more unexpected tactics the character can come up with. Mind you the databook doesn't actually explain in detail what these factors mean specifically so I might be just pulling things out of my ass.
Kazama has an 8 in special tactics so yeah, it's probably sneaky stuff and triggers in general.
>I love how one of the enemies stole Osamus sweatdrop and he himself is looks pretty confident in that last page though.
Feel bad for him since he may be a weak link in the Katori unit
They been on a losing streak for awhile now.
Shit my bad. I'm so used to Osamu being weak in everything.
So, Osamu with webs, Chiki with that new lead, what about Kuga did he get anything new? I don't care if they win I just don't want to see another embarrassment like the last match they had.
I didn't quit it. I'm still on this ride. I'm still mad though but I won't quit this manga.
Although Shinoda and Kazama don't fit that much.
Grasshopper is the only thing he added to his trigger recently.
Honestly with 2 trion no shield can defend him. And even if he got more I don't think he can compensate by going on the offensive like Kitora and Yoneya. He should just focus on tactics and tricks instead of jumping around too much especially since he's considered an easy mark now.
This Idaten thing Kuroe was using might be useful. Not sure if its redundant since he has Grass Hopper or if both have good synergy together.
Maybe Spider too? Wonder if he can tie people up with Pinball lol.
Saltier defeats make for sweet, sweet victories for the persistent
That's one shonen trope I can always get behind
He could still probably benefit from a focused shield, but it won't do squat against those rapid fire shooters.
So yeah, he should just quietly take people down when they're not looking like he did against Suwa, instead of charging in with that "FIGHT ME" attitude that got him wrecked in the last fight.
Too lazy to redump all of the BBF pages from the tumblr translator, but the other anon(s) doing it didn't get the actual full size images. To anyone who dumps them: don't save the inline images; open them in a new tab and change the "540" to "1280".
I feel so bad for Reghi
If he actually fought, he would have been great.
I was rereading the Galopoula chapters, and I noticed we already have a partial answer to how many people the away ship holds. When Border learns the away ship is the target in chapter 125, they show a schematic of the ship. Between the size and the shading it's difficult to make out many details, but you can pretty clearly see 12 seats in groups of three in the front part of the ship, and a possible 13th seat in the middle. Then behind them in the middle of the ship there are two rooms, one larger, one smaller, that are pretty clearly intended to be sleeping areas with bunk beds along at least one wall. Then an engine area behind that.
So it should hold as least 12 people. Given that three squads were off on an away mission at the start, I'm guessing it's designed to hold up to 15 people - three full teams of 4 agents and 1 operator. The operators and any female agents would get the small room to share, and all the male agents would get the larger room to share. That might sounds like a lot of space, but the trade off is no one gets any privacy.
>you can pretty clearly see 12 seats in groups of three in the front part of the ship
I had to stare at this pic for a solid minute before I saw those 13 seats in the front
So who gets to drive the ship? I'm guessing it either runs on autopilot or the designated operator has the specialized know-how to maneuver the thing
Based on the databook, I think "creativity" or more specifically "battle creativity" is a decent interpretation.
I'm hoping somewhere around 15ish.
>Tachikawa Unit 3 (I doubt Yuiga would go)
>Fuyushima Unit 3
>Kazama Unit 4
And five more special seats. I don't know if Usami could control two squads, but it'd be nice to have both T1 and T2 go along. I'm sure they would be able to make room.
I'm not so sure that Yuiga wouldn't go. Sure you'd expect him to be frightened by it, or not like the crowding, but it'd also be a rare and prestigious event.
Still, assume that Yuiga declined the honor, and Tachikawa, Fuyushima, and Kazama's squads still went, that's ten people, leaving them just enough room to squeeze in a full Tamakoma-2 into the ship's likely design limits. Even if Yuiga does go, they could probably manage given that Yuma doesn't sleep.
I doubt they'd be able to fit in Tamakoma-1 as well though. You'd probably have to swap out one of the other units for T1, but that'd leave them down an operator.
Katori is such a semen demon
To celebrate /a/ Official NTR Day, a pic of Ninomiya
There are a bunch of pastebins scattered across the most recent WT threads filled with these. The threads are still in the archive so you can search for them there
Maybe when they're finally done translating the databook we can gather it all into one convenient place
No, Miwa squad was dicking around on Earth at the start of the series. They're the ones who followed Osamu and Yuma around until Yuma gave himself away, then tried to kill Yuma only to fail miserably. Miwa was the one who bailed out in a huff after Jin showed up to defuse that situation. After that Kidou opted to wait for the away mission to return with their 3 best squads to add to Miwa's squad before making another attempt.
Plus the idea of humanoid Neighbors and civilian Neighbors seemed fairly foreign to Miwa and Yoneya. Which shouldn't be the case if they'd been into the Neighborhood before. And Miwa was kind of irrational towards Neighbors at the time, which isn't exactly a trait you'd want in someone who might need to be doing some negotiation with Neighbors.
It's one of my favorite 2 page spreads in this series.
When will Toei decide to top this scene in the anime?
Episode 69 looked alright. The shut up and die moment wasn't as glorious as it could have been, but then again it could have been as bad as the shouting contest in episode 27 so..
Damn mate, it's glorious.
But I kinda changed last panel.
Why doesn't Osamu just get really fit and become an attacker and Chika drop the rifle and learn how to become a pocket trion artillery?
Jesus fucking Christ. Seeing it animated makes me mad. I'm hoping in this next fight he catches a break.
>Trains for hours on end
>Refuses to take an easy route
>Makes sure to be extra cautious
>Comes up with ideas pre-battle
>Still blown to bits
Don't give up Megane-kun, You will have your day!
Our coolest shooter
It is insane how many composition he could do. Copy from the chippo's
Asteroid + Asteroid = Gimlet
Asteroid + Meteora
Viper + Asteroid
Viper + Meteora = Tomahawk
Hound = Asteroid
Hound = Meteora
Kek Yuiga thinking that Osamu is his precious kouhai
That crab clock haha
I can answer some of those.
What other hybrid bullet combinations are there other than Tomahawk and Gimlet?
A: Meteora + Hound =「Salamander」, Asteroid + Viper = 「Cobra」, Hound + Hound = 「Hornet」and more.
Nope. Ashihara hasn't revealed it yet. The "and more" part is very important. And also I'm thinking that Asteroid is like the basis for a lot of these hybrid bullets. They are named Normal Bullets in kanji after all.
I don't have a pastebin where I store everything yet. Not finished with the Q&A because I've been procrastinating. This part about the Triggers is actually the last part I'm working on.
The only thing that I'm done with is the interview.
I'll post everything else when I'm finished. Or do you guys want to read the Q&As that I'm finished with first?
Same as the others, I just have one question tho.
Are there any questions regarding Yuma's BT, and if so are the answers clear or are they along the lines of "it's secret" ?
I'm interested in the mechanics and how it can copy stuff.
There are some questions about Yuma's BT but Ashihara won't reveal the name. There is this though. I might as well post the ones about Yuma and Replica.
Please tell me when Yuma's birthday is. [Many]
(Note: Some questions are marked as [Many] due to many people asking this question.)
A: According to the calendar in the WT world, his birthday is July 18th and is a Sword (Tsurugi).
(Note: Ashihara has created a different set of the 12 constellations for the WT world. Sword is one of them.)
What is Yuma's favorite Japanese food out of all of the food he has tried?
A: Konami's chicken curry.
Would Yuma die if he removed his black trigger ring? [Many]
A: Not immediately. He can still move for a while if he removed his ring (black trigger), sort of like being cut off from external power and running on internal batteries, and after using up his Trion he will go into a sort of sleep mode and be unable to move. If he is supplied Trion he will be able to move about again. However, without the ring supplying nutrients to his body, he might die if left unattended.
Is Yuma able to ride a bicycle yet?
A: He's really good at it now. Today he energetically rode his bike along the river side, and then he fell in the river.
How heavy is Replica sensei?
A: Around the weight of an empty rice cooker (0.5L).
In chapter 16 what exactly was Replica sensei's plan in defeating Miwa Unit's sniper?
A: Probably something like using the 「Chain」 Seal to bind him up.
Did Replica sensei travel with Yugo before Yuma was born? Or was he made specifically to watch over Yuma?
A: He was created specifically to watch over Yuma and be his friend.
They received like 3000 questions. I think Ashihara was planning to answer them all if only they didn't spoil stuff or take too long to answer.
Really informative. Thanks.
So Replica is made for Yuuma. Well they always moved around so maybe it's hard to make friend.
Viza, Hyerin and Mira recognize Replica's identity and how unique is this. If even Afto, the biggest military country cannot produce the like of Replica, I wonder how badass the country is. Sure hope we can visit it.
Maybe when replica is retrieved so we have repair replica arc
The analysis might have just been so that Replica himself can use it too, since you know, he helps Yuma save time by setting up seals.
Speaking of which, AI trion soldiers are very useful, why won't Border make some at least for BT users since they can't be in a squad?
His sense of humor is personally tuned for me. It's rewarding that there is sense of familiarity, counting also that you need to know the character to get the humor. Stuff like insider jokes.
>How heavy is Replica sensei?
>A: Around the weight of an empty rice cooker (0.5L).
Unless I remember incorrectly, he refereed to Replica as a rice cooker before didn't he
Anon I'm going to tell you this more for your sake
Emojis are generally frowned upon on /a/
It doesn't really bother me but if you keep using them eventually you're going to get some prick with a stick up his ass telling you to kill yourself.
Cross the that bridge when it comes to it or just try to get out of the habit.
The good ones are rare and far between, but that's the norm for WT in general I suppose. I'll share some.
imma help ya
Cool. Can't wait to see these in action.
i collect pics of all teams
mostly with operators included
But aren't they going on a rescue mission instead of a recon mission this time?
Wouldn't they definitely need more people than usual? Or at least a additional squad
Also sending all your best teams away and leaving home base unprotected doesn't seem like the best idea either
i never get why this pic is so funny to me
Not Afto, but who doesn't like the bro trio?
Yep, these three are great. I really love the teamwork in this manga.
Man Organon is such an awesome Trigger. Especially the kanji for it. Staff of Stars. It just sounds really awesome. Have some Jin.
What else does Jin eat besides Bonchi rice crackers? [Many]
A: Jin is an omnivore, and aside from rice crackers he also consumes animal flesh, various plant roots, shellfish, and fruits. He is able to dexterously manipulate food with his forelegs.
Is Jin unemployed?
He doesn't have any titles that mark him as a university student...[Many]
A: After graduating from high school, he decided to not continue his educational career but instead to continue manipulating events from behind the scenes. Talented Unemployed.
Jin's clothing is always the same, is he constantly in his Trion body?
A: He constantly remains in his Trion body to maintain his Talented Elite image, but his clothing in his true body isn't that much different.
> Jin is an omnivore, and aside from rice crackers he also consumes animal flesh, various plant roots, shellfish, and fruits. He is able to dexterously manipulate food with his forelegs.
Ashihara is freaking awesome.
>"Osamu, remember that time i tried to kill you?"
Man, he has such a great sense of humour. I always can't wait to see the profiles and q&a.
ok, that its all probably
Not counting Hyuse-only art.
Where'd you get all of those, previous WT threads?
I think the reason why they did send their best agents before its because no invasions had happened in quiet a while
Now we have two consecutive invasions happen in a short period of time, so they can't afford to send their best agents away now more than ever
I want to spank Hatohara and call her useless
What is Azuma san studying as a postgraduate?
A: There exists secret Trion experimental institutions in Border affiliated universities that conduct experiments that are not able to be conducted in HQ labs (experiments of various applications that are not for immediate use, but necessary for understanding Trion composition), and Azuma is in these types of research groups. Also studying history (military history).
Are Border agents that don't go to college (don't plan on continuing their education) employed at Border? Or do they work a normal job and also continue their Border duties?
A: According to the agent's own abilities and wishes, it is possible for one to work at Border full time. The ones that work a normal job and also continue their Border duties cannot join in on rank battles and defense missions regularly, so they might be transferred from the HQ to one of the branches.
The upper ranking agents all seem to be workaholics, do they take scheduled breaks? If they do, do they live within the HQ?
A: Normally they have two days for rest in a week, but there are a lot of agents that come back to work during their off days. The most hard working are Kinuta san and Commander Kido, and the one that takes the most breaks is Branch Chief Rindo.
Karasuma has a day job I think. I'm pretty sure Azuma is at least getting paid for his research. Jin literally just sits around all day plotting and feeding off of Tamakoma Branch. Rindo doesn't care.
rindo is cool
And of course Azuma would be part of the top secret extreme investigation
There's just something great about her.
Move over, head cats
There's a new moe head accessory in town
I'm afraid I don't have much Hatohara fan art
i have tons
i think its the character of which i have the most fanart
I am expecting a dump from you, anon.
ok ill dump some
she is too bitchy for me
remember to hit your waifu from time to time to improve her confidence (lessons by ninomiya)
after calling her plain and useless, try to pull a suplex on her
this pic is funny because we knew Hatohara made Aki less shy
so their relationship is nothing like this shit
your waifu is ugly?
her smile is empty?
i have something for you
You are truly a man of good taste, anon
keep your waifu on a leash or she will escape to other worlds with some stone-faced faggot
Honestly I don't see what makes the Fujin so insanely good
Of course it's great for Jin, but that's because he can literally see the future. You could give the guy a stick and he'd make it work.
For anyone but Jin, the Fujin is just a sword with the ability to attack from a different angle 8 times and then it's a sword.
ok enough for the moment, i gotta have lunch
That's why it's great. It allows cqc fighters to attack backline of the enemy group while still taking on frontline; making multidirectional attacks; protecting oneself with sudden blades; stealth snipes if assisted; getting past shit like shields and blocks and much more.
It's really great trigger on it's own.
Chika seems to be dealing with it well but I still hope there's more to the story than just rinji being the big bad and hatohara being stupid
I dont think Rinji is evil, just the main culprit.
What i do think is that he will end up having more trion than chika and becoming a God. And then something bad will happen.
I think Fujin is great. It probably doesn't look like that to you because it's more low-key and you are comparing it to aftokrator who were incredibly flashy for the most part.
The remote slashes remind me of Viper.
The multi hit is cool though desu, it doesn't need you to carry 8 swords at once (which would be silly) or train hard for years to eventually be able to slash 8 times in the same instant.
Though desu I was disappointed when it turned out you can just block the slashes with a regular Shield, you'd think that since it's a BT the power output would be enough to cut through them.
How did Rinji and Hatohara even meet?
They are both college age right now right?
Delete this. Yu is not for lewds.
Just kidding, she is.
Replica is based off of Ashihara's rice cooker.
>Jin's clothing is always the same, is he constantly in his Trion body?
>A: He constantly remains in his Trion body to maintain his Talented Elite image, but his clothing in his true body isn't that much different.
Wondered about that for a while. What a weirdo.
Maybe, but it has perks
By not being in flesh and blood ever, you don't need to 'readjust' when you need to fight some bot
Also you can turn pain all the way off so if you stub your toe or something it's not a problem
I think Nire might be my favorite operator.
Y'all know what's up.
Something people could use as shipping fuel in BBF?
