It might even have 14 episodes according to some official streaming sites. But the box set info only lists 13 episodes and there are only 2 parts to the box set. Ep. 14 could be an ONA that only airs online, obviously, or it will come bundled in the future with a manga volume as an OVA.

The power of Orth only reaches down to layer 1, maybe 2. Just as far as regular patrols are possible. Where the white whistles go, only the abyss' own laws matter. Misbehave and you end up as monster food or as a red smear on a cave wall. No appeal, no pardon. Survival makes right. That's all.

I have a cs6 licence for creative suite, but when I used my universities Creative cloud licence for other software it overwrite my cs6 ownership. Now that I've graduated I can't access any of my software withkut reactivating my license even though I own it.
Adobe have been shady as fuck with the creative cloud rollout and extremely unhelpful with resolving the issue. I have to reinstall everything from scratch after removing every trace of CC from my system even though I can't find my old install discs.
FUCK Adobe. Their customer reps have just been trying to strong arm me into reupping CC rather than fixing my goddamn CS6

He wasn't wrong, though.
The son of a bitch managed to quantify an abstract concept like love and use it to overcome the burden of the 6th layer, something that results in death or the loss of humanity (with extremely rare exceptions).
Not only did he overcome the burden he even figured out how to receive the ONLY the blessing of the Abyss to become he cutest.
The only thing he did wrong was get beaten by a sentient murder bot/artifact, the daughter of the most bloodthirsty White Whistle in history, and Nanachi.

So pretentious as always.

Bondrewd is just your everyday mad scientist that puts science above everything. That's wrong already since he is willing to sacrifice anything just to feed his own curiosity (and share some leftovers with his donators).
His only redeeming point is, that he sacrifices even himself, but that's nothing out of ordinary since basically every whitewhistle does it.
>such a complex character
He has some extravagant feats so he is not generic but he is far from being complex. No backstory, no goals, no insight. You can't get complex character just from few chapters.
>>
>>159489416
>The only thing he did wrong was get beaten by a sentient murder bot/artifact, the daughter of the most bloodthirsty White Whistle in history, and Nanachi.

>no backstory

There's plenty of insight into the character and his motivations given.

He was wrong because he betrayed his daughter's love and stole her future from her, the ultimate betrayal and failure a father can ever achieve.

He is worst dad, not best, despite what the stunted anons around here have been burbling about since the most recent translated chapters were posted.

Enough for him to be memorable, but not really to make him a complex character. If you want a complex character, read Paradise Lost or watch Shinsekai Yori. Boned Dude is not one.

To be fair Akihito legitimately has bloodborne concept art pictures on his pixiv, so chances are his designs are somewhat affected by that. And there is nothing wrong with that, it was a good game with great art direction, and has some heavy dungeoneering-in-the-middle-of-cursed-catacombs themes with Tomb Prospectors, as well as mad scientists dissecting people to use their organs for the greater cause and so on. It'd also be relatively simple to make an ingame bonerlewd cosplay.

You only needed a person who would give up everything for you in order to create a White Whistle. In other words, an unconditional devotion. Similarly, a devotion to give up everything for another person is needed to take on the curse and negate its negative effects.

Bondrewd manipulated the system and instead used the devotion of those children to shield himself from the burden. He tricked them into doing this which is incredibly fucked up and cruel even if the character himself isn't a spiteful person.

I knew at least one of you would try the whole 'b-but she just said she wanted to go on adventures, she didn't say she wanted to be anything other than a lump of organs at the time!' technically correct thing.

He's a sociopath that's quite good at mimicking love and affection when it suits his purposes, no one that truly loves or cares for another human being will torture, vivisect, and murder said human beings, let alone their own children, adopted or otherwise. The people that do that sort of thing are what we call "monsters", and such acts are called "betrayals".

But hey, nice trips, I guess it's better to be lucky and facetious than honest and wrong, right?

You can give complexity without giving all the reasons for it. A complex character doesn't need three chapters of backstory to exactly convey how they got the mindset they currently hold. Merely holding a complex and cohesive mindset that is consistently conveyed at all opportunities by the character shows a depth of character that lends credence that the author thought out this character entirely as an entity rather than just a side note.

Honestly. I had originally compared this series to Etrian Odyssey III. But now I think Breath Of Fire V is more apt.

>Three man party, you accumulate your second and third over time.
>one party member is blatantly overpowered at great cost. Has limited uses (dragon form)
>one party member is better at support and enemy analysis. Last one to join the group
>game focused on surviving underground environment
>antagonists use technology that is a relic of the past.
>Ultimate goal is just to get to the surface. (Inverse of this story)
Honestly, the battle system of BoFV would also work well with this Manga to a degree. Encounters take place on the same map used for navigation so there are no battle screen transitions. Also there is a great emphasis on using traps to bait difficult enemies into favorable positions.

Yes yes, you're not the only person on the planet to have ever cracked open a book you pretentious fuckwit. The fact that you're even engaged in this argument to such a degree without being able to concretely prove anything is completely defeating your own point. I too enjoy the art of literature, and for a manga character Bondrewd has a great deal of depth to him in numerous regards. If that upsets you so much then I'd like to know what exactly you intend to do with all that frustration. Going to keep whining, most likely?

Why live
>>
>>159490752

Lots of reasons.

They're impressionable, easy to find, nobody loves them or cares about them, they've got nothing to live for until you adopt them, and they're all already dying in excruciating ways before you even meet them, anyway.

So you pick them up, you nurse them back to health, show them what happiness is, give them love and attention, listen to them, remember them...and then, when they are willing to do anything for you...you just put them back into their original position of dying in excrutiating ways. But this time, it's for a cause instead of because the world is a literally a joyless Abyss.

They may have died horribly, but that was going to happen anyway.

Most of the Guild's daily income probably comes not from the super valuable artifacts that crop up once in a blue moon when a black or white whistle comes upon something amazing, but from mundane artifacts from the shallower layers that can be obtained in sufficient quantity and at a sufficient rate to be always available when foreign fleets arrive.

Using children to excavate en masse is economical for that. As long as they stay in the 1st layer, the risk is relatively low, and the guild isn't exactly throwing them en masse into the deeper layers.

The orphanage uses them to collect small time relics around the entrance to pay for their boarding. It's not typically too dangerous, but it's child labor which was incredibly common for a large part of human history. The world is pretty shitty abyss aside, and it's hinted that many wars happen which makes relics that can be used as weapons very valuable. With parents dying, you get a lot of orphaned children. Some of them don't end up in an orphanage and are stuck on the streets. That's where the kids Bondrewd collected came from. And then every now and then you get a kid obsessed with adventure who an experienced adventurer takes under their wing, like Lyza and Ozen did. Everything has an in universe explanation that isn't just dude kids dying shock value.

>bondrewd's expectations
Bondrewd expects the sacrifice to willingly give themselves up. He explicitly states it's a requirement, and that it is impossible for someone to become a life-reverberating stone without willing consent.

So while emotional manipulation is certainly in the cards, it's far too presumptuous to assume that every single white whistle was emotionally manipulated or "sold" into willingly sacrificing themselves when the two examples we saw were of people who did so of their own volition.

I've been writing a series of short stories since around 1996 that is basically this anime/manga, but without lolis and shotas, and with more adventure than suffering. The world and general setting are practically identical, with some small deviations, yet I only found out about this anime and manga a few weeks ago.

I was originally inspired by stuff like Laputa and Nausicaa, but the theme of a deep, dangerous, and mysterious place in the world that is hostile to humans and holds ancient secrets that lure them in anyway has always been a dream of mine.

I wanted to write my ideas and setting into actual novels some day, but now I feel like Made in Abyss has already done what I wanted to do, but better than I could ever have expressed it.
>>
>>159491723
i think you're misunderstanding something, perhaps it's because the top delvers are named "white whistles" who carry white whistles (item).
the top delvers have to sacrifice someone in order to gain full access to the abyss. they have to consciously decide that the life of someone who loves them is to be extinguished in exchange for their ambition. riko got a freebie, and bondrewd messed up his; so those don't count. normal morality is meaningless in this situation and all situations dealing with the depths of the abyss.

Nanachi had no idea how a white whistle was made prior to speaking with Bondrewd. There's no reason to think she is the authoritative figure on white whistles compared to Bondrewd, whose explicit requirement is wholehearted consent.

>>159492041
>the top delvers are named "white whistles" who carry white whistles (item).
No shit.

Someone has to sacrifice themselves.

No they fucking don't, as the example you immediately cited as "a freebie" proves. We know nothing about how white whistles are made outside of what Bondrewd tells us and what happened to Prushka, and as you can obviously see the top delvers don't "have" to consciously decide someone has to die. All that matters is that the sacrifice, quoting bondrewd, has "a firm determination to sacrifice everything for the intended user."

I'm sure there are white whistles who manipulated their sacrifice, but as of now there is no reason whatsoever to consider this the norm.
>>
>>159492187
Didn't Bondrewd said he was once the white whistle itself? This is my memory from the TL threads so it might be wrong, I'll have to reread sometime.

That doesn't in any way prove your point that it is either normal or required for a potential white whistle holder to decide to willingly sacrifice another, unless the vast majority of white whistle holders do the exact same things Bondrewd does (which, judging by Lyza and Ozen, does not appear to be the case).

Im slightly confused regarding the Curse of the Abyss.

My initial assumption was that it took hold as you descend, but apparently it's actually a weird reversal and only acts on those who try to leave - the deeper you go, the worse the effects of leaving are.

There are characters also trying to survive it - but if you're only planning on descending, does it actually matter?

Most explorers do intend on returning. That's why white whistles are so revered and seen as strange, because they have either overcame the curse to return and/or they are willing to descend as far as need be with no prospect of return.

Do you happen to enjoy having blood leaking out of you dick and asshole? This is explained pretty early on, numbnuts.

If you ever make it to the third you can tease Ozen about it, though she'll probably make your asshole bleed in response.

My assumption is that the White Whistles act as surrogates for the curse and allow whoever they're bonded to weather its effects.

I feel like it has to have some sort of leniancy, Lyza has been down there for years fighting who knows what, and to assume she hasn't jumped in all that time is silly. She's obviously stuck down there, but I assume you aren't under constant threat of the curse at 7.

So there's a separate, non-curse entity that also prevents further descent past the fifth layer? And needs bonded soul shenanigans OR someone with the blessing to pass?

That's what Bondrewd fucking said. Prushka didn't "accidentally" become Riko's whistle, you have to be , as stated by Bondrewd, was wholly devoted to the person they died for, I'm more willing to believe that significant number of the sacrifices willingly chose to do so.
>even if the other party if willing the holder had to willingly allow [or benefit from] their sacrifice.
The "or benefit" part is true, because every white whistle could not have gone farther without it, so obviously it benefits.

But cite a single part of the manga that ever says
>the holder had to willingly allow their sacrifice.
Because Riko sure as hell didn't and explicitly refutes your statement.

The kids are just cheap labor to the orphanage, but it's a place to stay and be cared for. It's why they really don't want them taking any findings for themselves and keep a sharp eye on them. They want to make a profit, but you can also extrapolate that they don't want kids being able to afford getting out of there. The leader is really kind and the headmistress doesn't seem too bad, but the orphanage has a torture room for a reason. People act like it starts cute but things are plenty dark on the surface.

Because they are unable to comprehend his work except on the lowest emotional level, primal fear and hatred. And because he's too soft to treat them accordingly. He has a critical weakness for Nanachi, is blind for the threat she actually represents.

Nanachi is full of hatred and evil thoughts, she just wants him dead. He doesn't realize that, tries to recruit her into voluntary service when he should use raw force against her. With her out of the game, processing Riko and preparing the robot for further studies would have been trivial. His love for Nanachi was his downfall.

If the method to create a White Whistle is ascending from the 6th layer while loving/thinking strongly of someone else and wishing them to survive/progress on their journey, then why did Mitty absorb Nanachi's curse and gave her the blessing, instead of turning herself into Nanachi's White Whistle?

it might be that, I'm not exactly sure if that was explained really thoroughly, I remember Nanachi saying stuff about the curse field acting like cloth and how you disturb it when you go upwards
but I don't really remember how it works for creatures of the abyss, I mean most of them don't really move far upwards from their habitats but take the flyer beast that Reg defended Riko from at the very start of the manga, didn't it move from like 3rd layer? shouldn't it be bleeding from every orifice?
though most curse effects have something to do with psyche, and more bodily-oriented ones may only work against humans as they are not from Abyss, what I mean is that animals living in the abyss could simply have adapted via evolution

there is still some debate over the wording of the zoaholic but one interpretation is that each praying hand is a separate instance of Bondrewd rather than a part of a collective network. If that is the case then each instance of is willing to kill themselves for the benefit of the greater cause. Which also fits with his character since he himself sacrificed his original body and original life to create his own white whistle

And how do they give them fluffy goodness? By taking in all the effects of the curse themselves, for the sake of the other person. They make themselves into a curse sponge. That's why, if the kid absorbing the curses dies, the person left alive gets the rest of the curse.

Nanachi only got blessed because Mitty lived.

There is the original one contained in the machine yes. However there are a couple of inconsistencies with the idea that is one Consciousness shared between multiple bodies as opposed to multiple Consciousness made from the copy of the original. Specifically and the one I hinge my theory on is the concept of betrayal that is brought up and Rico is doing her explanation of the machine. Betrayal should never occur if it's one person occupying multiple bodies since in essence it's a single mind with a bunch of Limbs. However if each body is independent from each other then betrayal can occur.

There's also the fact that Bondrewd doesn't need to put a receiver on to any of his praying hands in order to occupy their body. I have been treating this as though he is always present in their minds after possession.
>>
>>159492779
The amount you have to go up to catch the burden is always around 10 meters

I think the more likely case that he simply is every single praying hand. He even acknowledges this he's not just two people he's a Collective of people at this point.

I think his condition has gone beyond remote controling a single puppet at a time. And like I already stated. Since he was perfectly willing to kill himself for the sake of his own experiments I firmly believe that each copy of him would also have that same Zeal with the overall goal. So the praying hand who died at the Scorpion pit. And the praying hand that died tackling reg into the six layer. All those were individual copies that understood that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

There are things that contradicts with your theory.
First, praying hands refers Bondrewd as lord.
Second, they are all extremely slow both mentally and physically. They talk and walk slow, this wouldn't make any sense if they were all Bondrewd at the same time. I still think Bondrewd is just one entity who can shift between his praying hands, he can left or give orders to them which they'll autonomously proceed to. The only time we see Bondrewd with another praying hand seemingly more alive than others is at Prushka backstory which supports your theory but I think it is possible for Bondrewd to make greater versions of his zombies. Or maybe he was just human and not a zombie? It was back then after all, maybe Bondrewd didn't just zombified all of his praying hands.

I want Rico to lose an arm and then have them attach Reg's lost arm as replacement. I mean he clearly doesn't need it, he'd be much better with a basic prosthetic that holds a big tower shield. His lack of defense against a spiky tackle is the reason Rico nearly died.

If he's ambiguous, it's only because we don't know what his base motivation was. That said, he was highly entertaining and I don't see how you wouldn't enjoy him.

I won't hate on you for spoon feeding, but I will call you a retard for linking the non-typesetted versions when they just finished typesetting volume 5 a few days ago.

>First, praying hands refers Bondrewd as lord
If you mean Giera from the most recent chapters on potato, that could be explained simply as Bondrewd hadn't yet converted his praying hands with the machine so we can both agree to that idea. He still had his collaborators so there was no need for such extreme measures, but also had access to the Zoaholic because he was a white whistle at that point and would need to occupy a body.

At no point afterwards do I remember any praying hand referring to Bondrewd as lord. Even the page you posted. The only one to say anything that wasn't wearing his iconic mask was the one in the 4th layer and "That person"

>Second, they are all extremely slow both mentally and physically
This is a side effect of the Zoaholic. Post usage, the bodies will become invalids much like we see.

There is also the fact that the praying hand on the 4th layer said that three others had died to the insects. If they were supposed to be working together in tandem with the Moon Whistle that was present, it's unlikely that he was jumping between bodies that rapidly for the job of laying out explosives as time was imperative. But like I said, it's a theory I have. I like the idea of Bondrewd being so die-hard and warped at this point that he's willing to effectively clone himself. And each clone is willing to throw their lives away for the cause of perfecting his research.

I think the big question about Papa Bone's hivemind is whether he shares memories with them. If they are merely clones of his personality, without any psychic links, then each body has to verbally transmit new information. If there is a psychic link, all the information is instantly transmitted over distance. We may be looking at a case of the later. Evidence: the Praying Hand in the flower garden. He was suspiciously aware of all new information. It knew about Reg, Nico, and Nanachi. Most importantly, he wasn't even on a mission to monitor the protagonists, he was busy with another task that required his full attention, and he should have been working there for a while, yet he was immediately up to date with the latest development.

I doubt it. A lot of what made the characters endearing was their awkward, juvenile ignorance when it comes to their hormones. I don't think they'll totally remove it.
>>
>>159491356
>his entire motivation
Let's not exaggerate here. "Negating the curse" is just one part of the things he did - he was also interested in other shit like investigating Reg, stopping the bugs, etc. - and we don't know what logic even made him want to do that, anyway, whether it was for adventure or progress for their own sake or for utilitarian means or what.

Oh crap, I almost forgot about that. If the passage of time is different at various depths of the abyss then the concept of an event recurring every 2000 years becomes quite difficult to conceptualize. A phenomena that happens every 2000 years at the top could take place every 20 years at the bottom.

Same. They clearly have no qualms with adding and rearranging certain things to make it flow better in an animated format, so I would actually be delighted if they put some more substance into the first three volumes to make it fit as Akihito was working with the team and he either would've had to write it or nonetheless given it his personal approval.
The last episode ending with Bondrewd's deep, distorted voice and a cut to just the eye splitting open and fading into the darkness would be perfect.
