Dystopian industrial horror where humanity is scattered and the environment is hostile is the setting, there are no characters.
>>
>>157462443
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 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,
>>
It was alright.
>>
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.

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.

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.

He's a human who has robotic enhancements that are prototypal of Safeguard designs. He's lived for many thousands of years.

I rather they didn't. Not saying it wasn't good, but reading the manga gives a far more unique experience than what an anime can give us.

Yes. I gave you a specific answer because people who haven't read all of the material will tell you that he's a Safeguard.

>>157463274
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.

Not bad

Tae was a very strong character. She carried the entire movie.
>>
>>157463548
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

>>157463759
Was tae the one with 3 lines of dialogue that died? Or the one with 6 lines of dialogue that was killed?
>>
>>157463834
She was the one with the highest kill count.
>>
What was the neck brace he gave her at the end?
>>
>>157463776
There was no glitch. The humans got infected and Safeguards couldn't read their Net Terminal Gene.
>>
>>157463886
It's the movie's reason for why the things didn't attack Killy. Since he's given it to them, they can build a safe settlement now.

Stops watchtower from seeing you. He do t really need it anyway.
>>
>>157463466
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.

Not correct. Maybe correct in the movie's canon or something, but not actually correct.

Why is the animation so fucking choppy? does it actually look smooth through squinty nip eyes or something. The animation is alright but the choppiness is so distracting

They prefer it that way, and pay people to remove the additional frames.

More like the contagion got rid of the gene. The human survivors lack the gene.

>>
>>157464054
The movie budget would have cost 4 time as much for 60 fps
>>
>>157463987
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.

It would actually look worse at 60. It would make it much more obvious that the models don't have any sense of squash and stretch.
>>

>>
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
>>
>>157464406
>squash and stretch.
Aren't those animation principles only apply to 2D?
>>
The feel of the movie didnt match the manga's 90s cyberpunk feel.

Killy was also off the deepend of the aspergers scale.

That being said it wasnt too bad, would watch a sequel
>>
why did they have to use cgi? cheaper?
>>
>>157464175
Does bububki buranki or ID-0 do this? They looked fine and if they were removing frames it wasn't noticeable
>>
>>157464138
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.
>>
What was the stuff Killy injected himself with?
>>
>>157464430
but it is more accurate. for beam to create a 70 km hole, its spread must be minimal. So the initial hole will be smaller

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.
>>

There is no excess energy in a GBE shot.

>>
>>157464713
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.

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.

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.

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.

>>157466676
>cyberpunk
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.

>>157466968
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.

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

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

>>157467252

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

>>157474295

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.

Killy isn't human.

Nihei said it himself in the interview.

>>157467452
I think the Killy-style safeguards were made pretty late in the game.
The one we see had the same lip scar, which killy didn't have until later volumes
>>
>>157474714
Geez dude, did you skip the last 20 chapters of the manga or something?
>>
>>157474777
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
>>
>>157474785
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

>>157474862
Didn't dhomo say he was a normal fleshy human in a super suit?

>>
>>157474862
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.
>>
>>157469310
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.

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?
>>
>>157475247
And evolutions too because the Fishermen and the Net Society were also humans but through body modification and evolution they ended up looking completely different
>>
>>157475179
Just don't. Considering the City is multiversal, there is a mindbogglingly high numbers of entities that exists but never heard of before.
>>
>>157475482
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.
>>
>>157475482
>Killy and Cibo meeting on the elevator with the dog, which is at the end(?) of the story, but is that canon?

I think that anon is part of the people that believes the last chapter loops back into the first chapter.

>>157475628
Honestly, I think it's safer to say Killy is simply Killy because we will never figure out what pre-Safeguard special agent means in technical terms.

>>157475482
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.

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.
>>
God I fucking loved it. I fucking adored it. Shit, man. Blame! is the best.

>>157475795
One post too late. Like the anon above you said, it's not really canon. It's more akin to a heavy edited trailer for the Blame! manga.
>>
>>157475914
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.
>>
>>157475795
>>157475767
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.
>>
>>157475914
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.
>>
>>157476050
I own a physical copy in near perfect condition
Is it really that rare?
>>
>>157476088
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".

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".

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 thought it was fine, the only thing I didn't like was how often they used Killy's theme song when it cut to him. It became a bit comedic.

What the fuck is wrong with you, you /pol/ fuck? You ruined more than one past thread with this racist horseshit. Stop posting about racial shit, or stop posting altogether.

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

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
