Elfen Lied is better than 90% of the popular garbage that has come out in the past 5 years
Prove my statement to be incorrect
You are incapable of doing so
>Beat the shit out of the woman that is working on the same corporation as you are
>Wave around your gun inside your own transport helicopter and threaten to shoot your squadmates
>Place your own personal desires higher then your mission
Is this like, the worst soldier ever?
He's GAR as fuck in the manga
Pic related, his foot kicking a rapist
>nose starts bleeding before his slap even connects with it
Top kek, just goes to show the amount of effort that went into this shit
And i dont fucking understand how he even became a spec op soldier, because one of the biggest requirement to be recruited in such a team is to be as mentally stable as possible
The manga doesn't even have the pistol transport helicopter scene iirc.
Also iirc he was only considered highly effective because of his aim and reaction time, with his personality being his crux.
Bullets with tungsten core aren`t much heavier and dont have much more energy then regular are. They have bigger piercing capabilities because of core itself that goes further into target after the bullet is deformed, but psykers dont have any armor and they stop objects based on their energy alone. I fail to see how AP bullets are going to be more effective then literally any other bullet, because as i said, they have the same mass and the same speed as the regular ones, the only difference is the core.
So instead of this tungsten bullshit they should use +P or heavier rounds.
He "joined SAT to kill people".
His only sign of mental instability was his hotheadedness, which isn't enough to keep you out of a military force when your performance excels.
I doubt he pumped anyone higher in command than him, but he does frequently just punch people who he can in the face.
Basically they only appreciated his reflexes and aim, but didn't approve of his personality and actions.
He was basically sent as a berserker to go up against Lucy since he can't be trusted on jobs that require tact.
>They stop objects based on their energy alone
Not so sure, in the manga a specifically designed crossbow thing can punch right through due to the "weight" of the projectile.
It doesn't make much sense being honest, and I think what mattered most was .50 AE and the tungsten bit was to make it sound cool.
The manga only contraption by the way.
It's worth noting Bandou didn't make or think up it, and just stole it off some horned girl hunter whose ass he kicked for trying to rape the homeless girl.
Let me guess, you thought Elfen Lied was supposed to be deep and mature? Okamoto Lynn's works are so entertaining precisely because of the constant mood whiplash between extreme edge and bizarre humor. The anime tried to be completely unironic edge, missing the point of the series entirely.
There were so many odd characters in the manga. I did not realize that the glasses wearing bodyguard was a woman until this pannel. Okamato's art really was more atrocious than it is today.
I agree he was butchered in the anime.
Regardless I still think his purpose on that mission was just to be a berserker. The only reason they kept him in SAT were because of his physical abilities, and the only reason they sent him on that particular mission were because his personality wouldn't effect him throwing everything he's got in the direction of a specific target.
Also found the page explaining the crossbow shit.
Hey, tungsten literally means "heavy stone". Of course it's heavy.
kys faggot you have taste so far beneath trash it's practically #WithHer tier.
It's weight based I think?
But they're capable of deflecting explosives too, which have more force than 2kg.
Regardless Queen Bitch was capable of deflecting his desert eagle in their final encounter, too. So it's also some bullshit about how some horned girls have stronger "arms" than others which is why he could bust the amputee chick.
Yeah. Confusing shit.
Regardless this moment was actually clever.
Also worth noting the translation is pretty bad.
Flash bang, and 10 minutes was most likely a liberty by the translator.
Same translator had him say .50 AE were "9mm bullets", when he was just saying .50 AE would be better at penetration than the 9mm he used with the MP5.
