What did you think?
it was aight
6-7/10 standalone cyber-western
Lack of silicon beings and not enough Sanakan to feel like a genuine condensed BLAME experience though, hopefully netjew fags like it enough to warrant more volumes
pretty much this
world felt too populated for me. the art wasn't a good representation of the manga's style (if they even tried -- doesn't look like they did). not really recognizable as BLAME.
as a stand alone piece of entertainment, it was a solid 6.5/10 but probably could have been better.
It's a particular arc (like 5-8 chapters iirc) adapted with a lot of western flair, but relatively faithful
It's like a CGI Vampire Hunter D movie but with robots instead of vampires if you watch it by itself
It's not an adaptation of the manga.
The manga achieves a unique tone with its art and sparse storytelling style. It does a good job at worldbuilding (heh) and making you interested.
There's an older anime series that does a better job of capturing the weird technological desolation and loneliness of the manga,
I thought it was kinda bad. Withdrawing the scope of the manga made it feel like I wasn't even watching something set in the same world from time to time, and the characters were generally pretty shittily put together so the movie didn't even work within it's smaller scale.
I don't give a shit about all these villagers, I want to see Killy exploring the city.
Character stuff is based on Nihei's more recent style but not just imitating SIdonia where everyone still looks like (admittedly moe) potatoes
The ARCHITECTURE shots were plenty, though, and Cibo a tall glass of ration juice
Wished it wasn't as self contained as it ended up being. A few parts that didn't connect to the immediate story may have made the setting seem more expansive. Other than that, good effort to let both fans and newcomers have a glimpse into the City. Liked the POV switch to the electric fishermen, as it made the story more accessible and set up Killy as a force of nature passing through. Sanakan and Cibo a cute. Both of them had great scenes and presence. Pity they didn't include the builder sized safeguard in the fight and I didn't like that Cibo didn't stick with Killy at the end, the latter of which kinda fucks with setting up a proper sequel.
Overall good effort with some nitpicks.
That is factually incorrect.
it was better than I thought it would be. Killy was retardedly inhuman. Not enough sexy scenery though, that was a high point from the Manga. I'd watch a series if they made it.
I thought it was interesting. I thought the red shirts were the main characters, and found them all pretty boring.
The fights were cool, but they failed to properly convey a sense of hopelessness which I think the whole thing lacked.
Did you not watch the movie?
It was clearly stated that there was a glitch in their system that caused them to kill all humabs with out the whatever gene, and only people with that gene can change their programming
What was the neck brace he gave her at the end?
I never understood that stance, especially with a decent effort like here. An adaption won't invalidate your enjoyment of the source, nor will it make the source disappear. As seen here. It's a different take on the whole fishermen arc, but I thought the portrayal being a powerless little tribe in the City was a cool take on the story, especially the opening sequence was full of tension, as they tried to find some food, while trying to avoid the watchtower. It was a nifty new perspective.
Because the manga is all about the atmosphere and scenery porn. The anime just feels too shounen-like to get the right feel of it. It's a good attempt, but it's just not getting the same feel one would get when he read the manga and realize Killy had walked for more than a few thousand years across the solar system.
THIS ROTTEN CORPSE CAN'T BE THIS CUTE!!
I think it's a decent introduction to the mad trip that the source is.
The GBE was pretty underwhelming
Remember that part in the manga where killy blew a hole in the megastructure above and then hollowed out the tower he was standing on with his GBE? First time reading I nearly pissed myself
The holes he blew in the movie where pathetically small even when he shot a level 2 shot
And you can still get that feeling from the manga. An anime adaption has different advantages. The story and setting are good enough to carry interpretations across different media, all imo of course. If it were done as a tv series, they could even dedicate an episode to one of Killy's walkathons to portray the magnitude and isolation of his journey. There's enough of a possibility that an adaption would bring something interesting to the table, in order to not warrant the denial of an adaption from the getgo.
But hey, neither of us is likely to make that decision, so lets just lean back and see.
It looks about 15 fps, I've seen student stomp motion animation that looks less jumpy
reminds me of this
It can be done in 3D as well, it just takes way more time and effort. Models have to be rigged completely around it, and with anime being all about the quick turn around it's not something you really see being pushed much overseas.
It's also why so many people are turned off by CG anime, because the lack of natural movement is much more obvious. With 2D you just fill in the blanks since it's a drawing, but with 3D it looks more like moving dolls than living things. Blame still had this problem, but since a lot of it is machine cyborg fightan it's a little easier to forgive.
Yes, I wish the soundtrack had more variation and recognizable character to it. For instance, I liked the occasional western vibes in what appeared to be Killy's theme, but I heard it a tad too often, with not enough variation arrangements, so it made the OST seem limited.
Killi's character is really weird.
I dont like that they moved the perspective towards the willagers and changed the spirit of the story from the adventures of a space hobo in an endless dumpster into an epic hero story it lost it's exploratory spirit.
In other hand a faithful adaptation about Killi just walking in silence with dark souls lever storytelling wouldnt really fly either.
People like Nihei himself.
>It can be done in 3D as well, it just takes way more time and effort. Models have to be rigged completely around it,
do you have an example of this? I don't think I've seen 3D animation that does this.
If you imagine the fisherman village as a frontier town and Killy as a wandering outlaw cowboy, it's an easy comparison to many classic western films.
They obviously were drawing similarities to westerns with the guitar music and certain shots of Killy.
>I've seen plenty of westerns anon, and I don't see how they relate to this movie.
You can't seriously be this dense. Mysterious rambler with a gun strides into a lonely town on the edge of nowhere, takes care of some outlaw killers, makes some new problems, moves on, etc.
It's a common story in westerners, but definitely not the majority, so the comparison is pretty easy to miss.
Revenge stories and searching for gold were immediately what came to mind for me.
How was the gravity beam?
I always imagined Killy's gun as some sort of gravity weapon.
It wasn't the best adaptation of one of my favorite manga, but they did good for something that probably wouldn't translate well into motion.
In any case, I welcome the jewbux funding nip studios instead of stealing the franchise and ruining it with white washed garbaged. This is a step in the right direction.
You got this if you watch at theater on Nipland
This Nihei interview about the film is interesting. He says how he did lots of drawing for it. Designing and redesigning various settings and characters.
The OST totally ruined it. Should have had far more atmospheric electronic and Killys theme was overused and cringeworthy.
I feel like Killys character makes no sense for normies and they missed the key opening scene from the manga that helps establish his character.
He also doesn't look as boyish as the manga and I dislike that.
Also they pulled a lot of the violence in favour of CUTE GIRLS and EXPOSITION which is fucking sacrilege. The joy of Blame was inferring the backstory for yourself.
Cibo was great tho and I liked the artsyle even if there wasn't much architecture porn.
Blame! is posthuman, not transhuman, and it has nothing to do with politics.
Has nothing to do with most of the narrative mechanics present in cyberpunk.
You're one of the fags who labels everything which doesn't fall under star trek futurist bullshit cyberpunk, aren't you?
That's an outright lie.
Just because it's not normal flesh doesn't mean it's not flesh. You know that your body almost completely regenerates its cells all the time? The only cells that you keep for life are your brain cells. Killy's nonstandard human cells are still human cells.
You will have absolutely no clue the scale, reason or scope of anything after watching. The things that were mysterious in the Manga(who/what is Killy), are laid bare in the anime, and the main themes of the Manga(endless struggle alone) take a back seat to action and psudo harems.
Still it's a passable 6/10 on it's own. As an adaptation to introduce you to Blame, maybe a 2/10.
cyberpunk is more about a near future society overrun with corporations, government, and hackers, clashing ideologies, political factions, etc. Like Ghost In The Shell. Blame is dystopian science fiction, but that doesn't qualify it as cyberpunk.
>You dont know any girls
I was talking about the movie, you don't need to remind me that...
Maybe, but it doesn't matter. Nihei has made it abundantly clear that Killy is a human being, regardless of whether or not anyone else agrees. Part of his inspiration in making Killy was that he liked the idea of himself, a human, being able to live forever.
If you're referring to who Killy is in general - that, too, is in the artbook notes.
I give it a 10/10 in hopes they fund knights of sidonia season 3. Other than that i hoping the ost would be epic electronic synth like the main theme. Also wish there was more fighting and use of the gbe
You mean saved it from its utter mediocrity.
I think it was a great introduction to the manga. I had never paid any attention to Blame! before this film and now I have purchased the manga because the setting was intriguing. Most comments I have seen from people new to the franchise seem to agree too.
Faggot, the manga will not simply stop existing because we have the movies, what the fuck is wrong with fuckers like you who get triggered if they make some movie or anime based on the manga and screech as if the original manga will lose something because someone made a adaptation, this movie was one of the thing I wished for a long ass time after watching the shorts but here we have some autist saying he doesn't want more because somehow it would ruin the atmosphere of the fucking manga
But his body was still one of the types of body that the safeguard ended up using, he was probably a prototype they put a human mind inside to do the mission once they saw that everything was going to hell pretty fucking fast
Jesus christ, no it isn't. That would make the word fucking useless.
>hurr all scifi which isn't sunshine and rainbows is cyberpunk
Go back to whatever shithole you crawled out of.
Are you fucking blind? What material can survive having the heat nearing that of a fucking star melt his goddamn face down to the skeleton? Just because he has a human mind on his doesn't mean his body is organic, next you're going to tell me Cibo was human, even while reduced to skeleton
I have seen you in other threads pushing this shit and talking about proof while not sourcing anything you claim while we point out pages from the manga itself.
He wasn't "enchanced" they just put someone they trusted in a pre-safeguard body because it was the only body that would be able to survive all teh shit he might need doing
Fuck you, secondary. I've been reading Blame! since 2001.
Well hopefully with all this hype about the new movie we can convince a few people to read the manga first. I thought introducing the Safeguards first, then letting their existence stew for a while before revealing what Killy was, was kinda nice. Also not ever seeing regular humans until Toha Industries added something unique. The introduction of Toha, as a staple was a missed mark too, even just a name drop from a mark on the wall could have added a hook for future installments. Like I said, as a stand alone it was all of a 6/10, but as for it's ability to drive home the themes of the Manga, 2/10.
>talking about proof while not sourcing anything
Retarded fuck. You would dare say such a thing? Come back when you speak Japanese. Or kill yourself. Kill yourself.
you sure are concerned with gatekeeping
chill out dude
go play with your fidget spinner
i'll be over here watching Naruto for the third time (great anime you probably haven't heard of)
>If Killy is a human why is he a cyborg?
He is a safeguard.
Think about synthetics from Fallout/Stellaris or these guys from Bladerunner.
I too like to post reaction images in place of sound arguments.
They were made with evil experiment, the safeguards technology is the same as the proto slicon lifes.
No really, the original Killi had a way more fleshed out personality
Here the explanation. Their bodies are the same.
>Like I said,
That isn't what you said though. You said "as an adaptation to introduce you to Blame". I was telling you that generally it seems most people new to the franchise generally have a positive opinion and want to learn more after watching it. This makes it a good adaptation to introduce you to Blame.
>want to reread blame!
>remember I didn't understand anything even after reading the whole thing in a few days
How do I stop being such a maroon?
You could easily replace the instant food bars with batteries or harpoons. The fact that this particular MacGuffin cannot be a precious metal or gemstone doesn't mean it isn't a MacGuffin.
You only need to read it 2 times to fully understand.
Every time I re-read it I learn something new. Look at how this guy is terrified when he sees child sanakan.
Ah, after re-reading, I suppose that it isn't actually a MacGuffin because food, batteries, and harpoons are useful, consumable items that are required for the Electrofishers to survive in the Megastructure. A MacGuffin must be irrelevant to the plot, but the Electrofishers would be pretty fucked without food and batteries.
>Nihei knows what fits his series
So I decided to read the manga because of the movie.
Im a little past the point where Killy and Cibo meet.
Is any of this shit supposed to make sense?
The main girl, Zarru or something, made by peepee hard and throbbing.
>Nihei: ... So after about ten years of that, I decided to try doing a normal manga for once – change up my art style, try to make as user-friendly a manga as possible. Knights of Sidonia is one of the results of that.
>–The art in Knights of Sidonia does seem quite different from your previous work.
>Nihei: Yeah, I wanted the art to have a Tezuka-level mass appeal. (human shape laughs out-of-sync with his 7th-plane form)
He does say with the story that they decided from the very beginning that it had to be made easier to understand if they wanted it to be a major work because the original material wasn't really commercial driven or meant for a wide general audience at all.
I think he just wants a more subtle approach to things. Rather than exposition on your face and shitty armored cast with gramps and the teenagers that takes up most of the screen time. A 1 to 1 adaptation is impossible but at least the what the original source material intended. And this doesn't necessarily mean 1 hour of him walking but a more atmospheric feel. Because I think it's possible to include characters you can relate to (think omushishi or casshern) without making them feel like 1 dimensional action film cutout like the fishermen.
Why does it matter if it doesn't affect the source material? That's a stupid argument in the first place. Sure, the source material give you enjoyment. But you're watching an adaptation primarily because of its source material. An adaption shouldn't be 1 to 1. But it should at least adhere to what the source material intended and break a few rules. For example, the new ghost in the shell film is shit because it's a mediocre scifi slapped with the brand name and its characters. And this is pretty sad considering Ghost In The Shell can be adapted in different ways as shown by its different titles. And while the film isn't the same because it follow the source material better. But people who come in expecting a more subtle and atmospheric approach to a Blame adaptation are disappointed. Not because they wanted Kill just walking but more because the creators felt the need to appeal too much to the mainstream audiences by putting characters who shove information to you.
Left is a girl wasting time to get disgusting nigger hairdo.
Right makes do with a few hairpins stuck haphazardly in a matter of seconds.
Anyway the only really efficient way is to cut it short.
Oh god why is Cibo so fucking hot holy shit
I was expecting this thing to show up.
In this interview from he mentions a number of reasons for making the girls cute in the adaptation. He talks about commercial success as a motivating factor. He also mentions that he felt like in a particularly brutal world like the source material for BLAME! you should at least be able to have cute heroine. He also says that he just wanted to be able to see the cute girls he designed brought to life by Polygon at full strength.
>not wanting her to step on your dick with her stilt legs
He kind of shows up n the background though.
Those aren't stumps, you mouthbreather. They're just NXTLVL high-tech high heels. She's like on her tiptoes all the time with platform shoes that taper to spikes. She must have a really high DEX and have done a lot of practicing to be able to move so nimbly like that.
>tfw Cibo will never stab your balls with her pointy feet
Just fucking kill me
Zuru is cute
Would you ever be so kind as give a full translation of it? I don't think that we'll ever get one, otherwise.
We've never so much as gotten a renewed version of the artbook notes, and they're extremely easily available, after all.
>Why does it matter if it doesn't affect the source material?
Because some faggot is suggesting that the adaptation taking liberties somehow ruins the source material. For fuck's sake, refer to >>157471369
And kill yourself Miguel
>Because some faggot is suggesting that the adaptation taking liberties somehow ruins the source material.
>but reading the manga gives a far more unique experience
His argument is stupid. But he never once said that it ruins anything. The adaptation just didn't fulfill his expectations. So, the guy's just salty for future adaptations.
You can impregnate this Cibo (cyborg) but the safeguards will fuck with you forever, wyd?
Damn. I have an almost-perfect grasp of Japanese grammar, but I don't know any words, and it would be too infuriating for me to sit around OCRing every other bizarre compound used (推進力, 端末, whatever) for me to do it myself - it would take me like an hour of work to do that page. That's why I was hoping for a more fluent translator.
Nobody in that chain says anything about the manga being ruined other than you.
>she suppose be emotionless
>literally her last words are "Kyrii" as she dies
There's a couple of instances where she breaks the emotionless routine for brief spurts of smug sadism after getting what she wants in the movie. It's incredibly arousing.
The JK age
>mouth open a little
>eyes open and expressive
Clearly she was meant to look something other than neutral/passive in that panel, especially since she's calling out to Killy.
Will Cibo's childbearing hips ever be put to use?
You can OCR the whole thing fairly quickly and accurately automatically using google drive (upload the image and select open in google docs) or ABBYY Finereader especially if you crop it and then adjust the image to make the text stand out more. Which stops you having to use something like KanjiTomo all the time manually. Then paste full sentences into ichi.moe and get the words from that.
This image should be mandatory as the OP image for any Blame! threads from now on. Reading this after the first read-through of Blame! and then rereading Blame! makes for a very rewarding experience.
>You can OCR the whole thing fairly quickly and accurately automatically using google drive ... which stops you having to use something like KanjiTomo all the time
>I have KanjiTomo open right now
God damn it. My life is just a long, uninterrupted series of disappointments.
Because of this movie Blame! will finally get a doujin.
her face look Fox/ youkai like
doesn't look like Nihei's design >>157463152
Polygon probably hired a new character designer or their modelers have done a really shitty job
I only found out about being able to do it a few months ago. Certainly made things a lot easier. Both Google and ABBYY do make some mistakes so you need to check what it produces and sometimes KanjiTomo can be useful there for correcting those mistakes. If there is a non plain colour/patterned/image background its often useless but when it works its so much faster.
Character designer is same old Yuki Moriyama who designed Sidonia characters.
But Nihei draws the best doujins already
Nihei's doujin-type work is terrifying.
Just finished watching it while chilling in my garage with my dog. It was aiight. Cool action and decent English dubbing. Fuck you before you say anything because Netflix exclusives usually have decent dubbing.
I like how the next recommended movie was
Possibly another proto-safeguard agent like killy. It is clear that Nihei hadn't planned out everything at this point, it is possible she was meant to have a bigger role, or simply the world worked differently when she was introduced.
>but Sanaka in this movie look sly, kind of S
It was a good look for her.
Killy isn't human.
Nihei said it himself in the interview.
The Domo dude though, I also don't really remember but I think that detective from Noise looked like a prototype Sanakan safeguard and I don't remember if it was armor or if she had her whole body do a full cyborg conversion
But by then hadn't the safeguards said they wouldn't revive sanakan anymore?
And her body looked way more advanced, so i assumed it was her original one and it happened in the past or something
Why was sanakana suddenly speaking good about killy and why did she look like him
I was very lost about that entire segment
Musubi's "being" was assimilated into the safeguard protocols and likely manifested later as Sanakan. Sanakan become a killy-type agent after her re-assimilation by the governing authority but she was still very much a different person. Domo on the other hand was likely manifested during one of Killy's 1000 year naps.
eh, it looks cool in 2D but early old Nihei designs would look pretty weird if you tried to model them accurately in 3D -- his old style is pretty inconsistent and the faces change a lot from one panel to the next.
I like it in the manga but I get why they streamlined it for the anime.
No, the governing agency told her they couldn't revive her anymore right before she went off to save orb cibo from the silicon organization and after having travelled with her for a while.
>you will never spend 17 million hours snuggling with Cibo
So how old is Cibo?
The Lost Disc says that there is a 16,000 year gap between her original body dying during the experiment were they connected to the net and Killy and Cibo meeting on the elevator with the dog, which is at the end(?) of the story, but is that canon?
I think Cibo was a couple hundred years old when she was head scientist, then after the failed experiment rotted for a couple hundred years. Her and Killy spent a few hundred years-ish traveling together. Then after she was downloaded into the Level 9 Safeguard body the timeline gets retardedly stretched out and I lost count. But by that point Cibo was essentially dead mentally and her body died right after Killy caught up to her.
So effectively they spent a few hundred years together, but Cibo might be over 10,000 years old before she died if you count her Level 9 body years.
>Killy and Cibo meeting on the elevator with the dog, which is at the end(?) of the story, but is that canon?
What? That lady at the start has no bearing on the story and was just a one off character before Nihei figured a plotline
Is ＢＵＲＡＭ！ the Heart of Darkness of manga?
I enjoyed reading Heart of Darkness.
Don't count the OVAs as 'canonical'. The way they're made, Cibo appears to be like 4 other characters that she's not. It's cool as an original story/work, but it doesn't really line up with the manga.
No, he's just seeing the OVAs for the first time. In them, it really does make out Cibo to be the dog girl.
It means "cop" (half-serious) - but, you're ignoring the artbook bit where it's made explicit. I don't like arguing about what Killy is, either, but I hate it when people ignore things that have been said or shown in favour of an agenda. Nihei says that Killy's a human, so I say that he's a human. Nihei says that Killy was probably a cop, so I say that he likely had a job similar to the original cop Killy from Blame. If he ever contradicts himself on these things, I'll gladly accept it - but he never has.
I like to think of it this way: What defines humanity in Blame! ? Killy demonstrates things that a lot of actual humans have lost in the city: Compassion, justice, curiosity, and most importantly PURPOSE. Killy has a sense of personal agency and feels a personal connection to those he meets. That makes him human, even if he's artificially made.
Those videos were made after the manga ended. They're not supplemental material or anything; they're supposed to be for fun, really. That's why they weren't a physical release title: they were released online. That's actually a primary reason why it's so hard to get them at all, much less get them in good quality.
Look, im not really for or against what Killy is here. Considering how the post transhuman it is, the word human really doesnt have same connotation that real life does. It's Nihei, human is just as much a human as a bear is.
I agree, but look at basic lines of logic:
Killy is a "pre-Safeguard agent". The Safeguards are what ended traditional humanity. Having been born before that, there's a significant chance that he's a traditional human in his base.
Arguments that go against those lines require the arguer to either ignore the source material, or to argue something weird like "Killy was a robot taught to be a human".
You should definitely upload it right now, if you're serious. I, and everyone else here, would surely be really grateful.
Though, how can you have a physical copy? It's an ONA series.
If you have it, then it's either some manner of bootleg, or something quite uncommon, I should think. When and where did you get it?
Cibo drops something before she closes the elevator, though. It's entirely possible they'll meet again if there's a sequel.
They really made this turbo bitch real cute in the anime.
As I, and others, have said countless times:
Though [he] is human, [he] has been heavily cyborg-ified.
Just chalk up the regeneration to that. It's not much different from a pacemaker, in theoretical application. Also, his skin is not replaced by the suit.
Say something nice about my tall robot waifu!
I don't remember, i got it years ago
I don't think It's bootleg, the cover art is in a couple nihei galleries labled things like "dvd cover 1" and things like that.
The selection screen is a fucking trip though.
It's written in the symbols from Blame, not english or Japanese, and half of the 10~ selections just make an error page pop up.
No assumptions, I literally typed it into the first result for "binary to text converter" just for the heck of it.
I could fuck around with different conversions and see if in some scenario it actually converts into something legible in some obsolete Japanese encoding (JIS, EUC, whatever the fuck), but I'm too old to be bothered, and I'm really not even this curious.
How goddamn inbred is that colony? Kirry counted roughly 75 people or so when he was there, he probably didn't meet all of them so let's say there's 150 people total.
Old guy mentioned that in his generation, or for the past 50-60 years there haven't been any new travelers coming to town.
Now a good 2/3rds or even more of them died in the attack and they apparently just started fucking like rabbits for the next two generations and still have healthy children.
This to me is more implausible than the fact that they are able to survive off the "land".
And why the fuck would you swat away nutritious bugs rather than collect eat them.
Picture related, St_pop being starting population.
So many patricians ITT. Pretty much every Blame! waifu is top tier
The "Blame symbols" are just highly-stylized Japanese - unless they're something altogether unique. I generally can't read them, even though I can read Japanese.
That's beside the point, though: how big is the file? Do you want to try uploading it somewhere? It may have something to do with your computer's locale or some stupid shit; mine's all set to Japanese, so it would work for me if that were to be the problem.
The pacing was a bit slower than the manga, and for 1 hour and 46 minutes it surprisingly covered little. I almost expected them to cover nearly the full Electro-Fishers arc in the manga, but in base reality, they only covered around half of it. So I'm hoping for its success, that they make a second or third movie and cover more of the manga.
That said, it was nice that they made it--as its a long time coming, and it was good enough that I reread the manga in one-sitting again. Also, his new manga Aposimz seems to be doing well--and if we're lucky, that will get adapted into another anime in the future for two seasons like Sidonia OR we'll get a Season 3 and 4 for Sidonia, that will cover the remainder of the story.
The GBE fires a concentrated sphere of gravitons. Whatever they interact with, destabilizes the atomic bonds of said material, and in the process of that, releases vast amounts of energy. Which results in destruction that we see. The level of destruction varies with respect to the type of material it interacts with.
You're basically using gravity as a weapon in a hyper concentrated projectile. Its not an energy weapon, even though it appears to be one.
Yes but all the girls make me Hard as fuck considering they all have the tall girl flat chest supermodel body I adore so much.
Take this girl, the Female co-leader of the Silicon lifeforms for example.
I'm a mobilefag with a bluray player who watched anime on a tablet, so i have no clue about the filesize
Pic related is the selection screen
It would work better if the GBE instead of firing a Graviton Beam actually destabilizes the effect of the Gravity Wells around its' projectile, causing any matter to implode around it. But going by the name of the things it's unlikely it's the case. What's the original japanese name of the thing, is Graviton Beam Emitter an accurate translation?
And the error page
Also there is an episode titled "bonus: collapsed data" about the silicon creatures uprising
Does that exist online?
well you know how they have a tradition of being friendly to travelers right? A traveler every generation or so could bring the much needed variation to the gene pool if you know what I mean.
Shit, don't you have a DVD/BD drive in your PC at all? Because you need to get yourself some ImgBurn (imgburn dot com), rip and zip that shit, and upload it to mega or something. Since it's a DVD the ISO size will be at most ~8GB, but most likely well under 4GB since it's probably single-layer.
Also that's no Japanese for sure in the first screenshot. Thje second one is an actual Japanese message, something about file and being unable, but I can't read the kanji.
Killy is confirmed by the controller to be a secret agent of a pre-safeguard system. During his regeneration stage, post Level 9 attack, we get brief flashback sequences as his memory cycles from backup. One of those shots, involves him and TWO OTHERS like him, who are released into the city. Their goal is to find the Net Terminal Genes. Based on the manga, up to the point where he is introduced, its made clear that the other two were not successful in their quest to find the NTGs.
Killy is a Safeguard. Sanakan even confirms it, and notes that he rejected the re-registration of it. Then later, Iko confirms it yet again when scanning Killy's iris that there is a forced registration erasure--and therefore, Killy's actions cannot be predicted.
Killy is NOT human. However, he was created by humans from within the Net Sphere and the intermediate reality interface, as a measure of finding the key to the lock so that they can take back their house and stop it from falling apart like it is right now, with rampant expansion of The City. Which is a Dyson Sphere. The megastructure exerts its presence far beyond The City's reach.
Finally. Because Killy is pre-Safeguard, and because his motivation is to find and protect humans, his behavior and intent is for all intents and purposes, human. When Killy states, he is a human, that is referential, but not explicit to Killy himself.
Human of flesh and blood, by their literal definition, he is not. But human with what he does in terms of action, and his perseverance, motivation, and determination to find the NTG, interface them with the Net Sphere, halt the growth of the builders, stop the contamination, restore order to the chaos, AND return humans back to the top of the food chain; all of this, makes him human.
Further, post Level 9 incident further cements Killy's non-human state, when he drains a massive power grid BY HIMSELF with what is probably quadrillions of watts of energy.
It's a little bit different from that. There's some sort of production of mass vis-a-vis the (produced) explosive occurrence of dark matter at junctures where the GBE's beam makes impact, and the change of mass causes things to be destroyed in an unspecified way.
My personal speculation is that it causes a change of mass (but not matter) which is radically inconsistent with the actual mass of [the matter of] the space, thereby causing some spacial anomaly that disrupts the 'natural being' of atoms and the like. Nihei goes on to describe the GBE as being like a device that "changes the *tropism* of a place".
So that's how I came to my conclusion, at any rate. It's an extremely bizarre and complex explanation for something that he didn't really need to explain this way, and it interests me that he did it how he did it - makes me wonder why.
Give me lewds!
It says "file is corrupted", unfortunately. I wonder what the deal is. And I'm not sure about the bonus - does anyone want to check online? It doesn't sound familiar to *me*, at least.
I'm a mobile fag so i don't have a pc
I'll post some more pictures though
Can't really call them screenshots, im literally taking pictures of my TV screen
Pic related is the episode select
That's funny, because I didn't say anything contrary to what you just said, either. I said that nobody in that chain *says* anything. You're the one talking about implications. And no, I'm not a filthy, subhuman ESL.
I think It's more just a feature of the disk desu
Trying to be spooky and unique
All the error pages are unique, for each of the ones that don't work
You can see the "bonus log" in my last pic
Here's another error page, so you can see the difference
I'm working with a 5yo potato
It's also worth noting that the fbi "illegal reproductions are illegal yada yada" thing plays before anything else on the disk, so i really don't think it's bootleg
And this a gallery
Some of the bubbles give an error page, but others pull of an area from the animation, with 2 versions of each, one pristine and the other old and decrypt looking
Does anyone have the unedited version of pic related?
