Strap in, boys, looks like we are getting Bonedaddy's Wild Ride.
Bonedad did nothing wrong. It was all in the name of science.
That is correct, unless you mean his actual arc and not the flashbacks, in which case you're sadly wrong.
But its better that way, I really doubt they could do justice to the fight scenes in later volumes.
Memes aside, scientific advancement was the means, not his actual endgame. His aim was pretty well-defined: do whatever it takes to survive the Dawn, and save as many people along the way, and being a narehate was obviously the key to that since Year 2K is going to affect only humans and not the native wildlife, which fluffs are also part of. His secondary goal, which is sort of related to the aforementioned, was "rending the curse of the Abyss", and alltogether he strived to colonize it and make the Abyss an actual habitable place.
anyone have the translation of these 2 pages? it's from volume 6
I'm so fucking mad.
With a 60min finale they would have had plenty of time to get to vol5 but instead they decided to spend 4 and a half fucking episodes on what was already the slowest part of the manga, and I can't see them going past vol3, so the next arc is going to be even more dragged out somehow.
To the anon from the previous thread wondering about the evidence that Lyza and Reg were fucking, here is a summary:
>Lyza is a shotacon
This is assumed from the fact she married Torka. You might dispute this, but this is the only thing we know about her tastes.
>Reg is a sexbot
Whether or not that is his primary function, we know he has a fully functional penis, a very strong sex drive, and a love for squishy titties. If he can barely hold it around Riko and Nanachi, then Lyza's generous rack should make it far worse.
>Reg and Lyza traveled together
This is seen in multiple flashbacks Reg flashbacks. They camped together and Lyza tells Reg not to feel sad, meaning there was definitely some emotional moment between the two.
>Something happens to Lyza, causing Reg to journey to the surface despite being almost out of energy
After the flashback in Nanachi's place, Reg realizes he was likely the one who set up Lyza's grave and was mourning there. Once on the surface, a single shot from his incinerator caused him to have a full shutdown, meaning he was almost completely out of power by that point. Whatever motivated him to initiate this quest, he clearly pushed himself further then he has ever gone before.
All evidence shows Reg and Lyza had a very close relationship, and judging by their nature, there may have been some fucking involved. It's all quite reasonable.
Nanachi next week, time to see how the adaptation handles bunny
Hey, Shelmie. You want to go to the museum again, right ?
Hey, Shelmie. I wonder if the immovable lord will come again. Huh ? How long ago was that again ? Shelmie... ? ... Even though we are twins why can't we be together ? But I understand that it's not long now. Because we're twins, right...
I want a many mitty mound. It'd be like a beanbag chair that drools.
It was translated in a thread about a month back. I don't remember verbatim what the TL was, but it was essentially one kid on the surface talking to his/her now dead twin lamenting that they died. Those same characters also explained in an extra page a bit about the Abyss language/runes.
Basically the birthday disease is ramping up
>since Year 2K is going to affect only humans and not the native wildlife
Are we sure about that?
Will bun grow anymore? I want her to be able to bully reg or maybe even
For the 1 hour special to cover Volumes 4 or 5, the anime would have to cover 7 pages of chapter 18, and then another 6 chapters worth of material in 3 episodes.
With the pacing we've been getting (~18 chapters in 9 episodes) it might be possible, but isn't super likely.
>You shall pay for the deaths of our brethren, potato loli.
Thats an interesting detail that I honestly overlooked, but I really doubt all layers are revamped during the year 2000. Maybe much like with mass extinctions that took place on our Earth, larger wildlife might get fucked up the foremost, but its hard to judge before we get any more info. All we know, however, is that birthday disease - which I think we all can agree is directly related to the apocalyptic event that is about to unfold - is targeting humans on the surface and that being fluffy is essential to surviving the armageddon. One might argue that the latter should be taken with a grain of salt because Bondrewd is pretty much insane, but I doubt Akihito would write it that way, he seems to make every little detail count, and if we take into consideration the meaning behind the wrod "Aubade" I think its pretty safe to say that the idea of Dawn is not just ramblings if a lunatic and that Reg is also directly related to Year 2K, and therefore was much more valuable to Bondrewd than one would assume at first.
Fuck everything. I just wanted happy adventures.
>and that Reg is also directly related to Year 2K, and therefore was much more valuable to Bondrewd than one would assume at first.
There's really nothing to indicate that yet. Bondrewd was interested in him because he was a unique specimen. He had multiple goals including becoming blessed, overcoming the curse, living through the next cycle, and just a general pursuit of knowledge.
>He's an unprecedented individual
Meaning Bondrewd has never seen anything like Reg before.
This page pretty much confirms Bondrewd was interested in him because he was an unknown factor, not because Reg had some connection to the cycle.
That is fair, however Riko suggests that Reg is an aubade-grade artifact somewhere in the first chapters, and Prushka later also says that Reg might as well be even more amazing than her dad's special grade relic, and special grade is the 2nd gnarliest after it. And in regards to aubade,
>An aubade is a morning love song (as opposed to a serenade, which is in the evening), or a song or poem about lovers separating at dawn. It has also been defined as "a song or instrumental composition concerning, accompanying, or evoking daybreak".
Now this all of course is just headcannon-tier theorycrafting, but if that doesn't feel like foreshadowing to you (which Tsu has already shown he is capable of doing), then I dont know what is.
He likely is connected to the 2k cycle, I'm not arguing that. I'm arguing that Bondrewd had any inkling he was connected to it. To him Reg was a unique specimen, not something connected to his research.
Also Aubade is just a title for the highest tier artifact in story, we've never had any indication what it actually describes. Does it describe just really powerful things a tier above Special Grade, or is their some hidden qualification.
The anime is based on a series of doujinshi, so if that's your thing, then yeah.
>Also Aubade is just a title for the highest tier artifact in story, we've never had any indication what it actually describes. Does it describe just really powerful things a tier above Special Grade, or is their some hidden qualification.
Yes but its also a real word, and I think its no coincidence that it means what it means. Sure Akihito is a jap, but he doesn't strike me as the type that would pick words that just sounded cool or exotic, just look at Sparagmos.
They are simply the best humanity has to offer, but in the end they are humans, with qualities and defects, also arguable slightly insane
>also i've been here for almost 10 years now
What? they are good guys! Bondrewd makes sure humanity advances in science
Ozen and Lyza are protecting friends from harm
Wakuna guides them!
and Srajo, well we don't know what he is doing but we are pretty sure it is something good!
Why? Its the passage through which you ascend to the morning star. And the part regarding ascension is most likely related to the fact that it can bounce and zigzag around until it reaches the critical point where actual damage would be dealt, since its harmless as long as its reflecting off the walls.
Far Caress is also a briliant name for tentacle rape device that works at longer ranges.
Shakers are relatively simple, since they "only mildly turn your viscera".
Canopy Unto Dawn can be interpreted in the same way as a egyptian vessel where the pharaoph's (Lord of Dawn in our case) organs (his underlings) were preserved, or as a canopy (protection) from Dawn (the apocalypse). Either way works fine for a suit of armor.
I think they all fit rather nicely, no?
>Its the passage through which you ascend to the morning star.
That doesn't give Gangway any more meaning. You were just defending their names by saying the real life definition fit so well. Well Gangway's real life definition is a small passage on a ship, not that mumbo jumbo about "ascending to the morning star" given in Bondrewd's chuuni description. You're kinda stretching here.
>Well Gangway's real life definition is a small passage on a ship
Its not limited to only that, that's just the nautical meaning of that word, the most broad definition would be just "passage", be it a passage onto a ship, a passage between two rows of benches, an interjection or the main passage inside a mine.
it's going to be a 59 minute recap of episode 4
+ 1 minute of bonezone walking through his lab and finding mitty's light
Was anyone else disappointed when it was Reg and not Riko who used the pick-axe last episode? It would have been fitting for Riko to use her mother's weapon, not to mention it would have made her less useless for once.
Not really, because Riko is not a combat expert, she can easily land a blow to an object or a distracted foe, but a giant charging snake was out of her league
>Not really, because Riko is not a combat expert
No, but she's still the daughter of Lyza the Annihilator. It would have been a moment where she could have stepped into her mother's shoes. Not to mention she seemed to have no problem holding and tossing the pick-axe.
Wrong Tama-chan disarm them and throw that pick into the water, such a capable adversary!
His name is spelled wrong. I had to look it up in hiragana.
Also tukushimasu is his vidya twitter.
>they loop scenes multiple times in a row
normally I'd disagree, but then I remembered his cumulative screen time of 2.57 seconds.
> trying to decide if I'm just a speedy reader or if I simply dismissed all of bonlewds ramblings as madness
What the fuck is this "2000 year renewal" shit, head canon? It has been a 2 months since I finished reading though.
I'm going to impregnate this male boy's thighs!
>since weve been getting roughly an episode for every two chapters, its unlikely we will continue to get and episode for every two chapters.
I mean i agree we wont get Idolfront, but you do a bad job of saying why
>Abyss was discovered 1900 years ago despite other civilizations having lived there before as evidenced by all the ruins
>Birthday Disease from the specials
>Praying Skeletons on layer 1 are 2000 years old
>Windmills on layer 2 are 4000 years old
>Trees on layer 4 have a mass extinction every 2000 years
>Bondrewd says he "wants to live to see the next cycle"
It's never been monologued out, but there have been hints dropped since the beginning. The birthday disease and the end of the most recent chapter are certainly connected to it all.
false, he will bear me two beautiful thigh babies.
Next episode is called Poison and the Curse so we will probably end it on the Curse explanation from Nanachi. That's a lot farther than I thought they'd get tbqh. At this rate we will get to Mitty's Incineration during Ep12 which leaves setting out and probably the field of flowers all the way until Idofront for the finale
there's another less comfy scene with the curse
Srajo has been tripping continuously and falling down and down under the Abyss, going past monsters and other delvers who think he is planning all that shit. In truth he is just a really unlucky dude.
>At this rate we will get to Mitty's Incineration during Ep12
Start of Ep12. There isn't really much before that to be quite honest, a couple cooking scenes which they can easily get done and over with in a minute flat, Regu's oddjobs which will just be a montage like in the Manga, the fight, and then the Nanachi flashback in Ep11. Incinerator at the start of Ep12, followed by Riko's recovery and them setting out. Ep13 is a whole 60 minutes if you haven't heard yet, they aren't going to take 60 whole minutes to get to Idofront, that'd be ridiculous. Never even fucking mind that they are doing a theatrical screening of it and how blue balled everyone would be if they cut it just as things are ramping up.
They won't include that shit, there is far too much setup for it. They'd have to introduce the doc and everything, it'd be an episode on its own.
Unless they dedicate 5 minutes to Regu and Nanachi walking around the 4th layer and slowly dragging Riko to the hut they should get that far regardless of what the title implies.
Well luckily Riko brilliance was there to compensate for Reg weaknesses
The sound it makes is a mystery.
It's only 4 pages from where the last episode ended to Tama-chan popping in and then another 5 with basically no dialogue until Riko's hand gets pierced, the "fight" will be insanely short in animated form. It pretty much just jumps past Reg&Riko once, knocks the fallen pick away, and then lunges at them while they hold the umbrella out where Riko gets hit. It's really not a lot.
That have been the case with everything so far in this adaptation, right?
Anon, all episodes were named with titles of manga chapters, except episode 3 ("Departure"). The title confirms nothing.
Suppose that the episode adapts chapters 19 and 20. What should they title the episode then? "Nanachi"?
Even if they censor the amputation attempt they are still not going to get anywhere close to the curse explanation next episode.
My guess is it will end on Nanachi's "I'm what you delvers call a Narehate".
Next ep ends on this scene. If you think anything else you're delusional.
They'll surely be traveling from the end of layer 3 to the top of the cups for the first half. I hope they show regu smelling nanachi following them.
Pic related is perfectly possible too. They would need to adapt 2.5 chapters to get here, which they've done multiple times already.
>it's clear that half the things you take as fact are wild speculation
But I openly said that I was speculating in parts where I speculated about things, I admitted that I did overlook some things when people pointed out fallacies in my reasoning and in other cases, noone objected to things I pointed out.
How is that "speedreading"?
There's a lot of important exposition and dialogue between getting to the hut and that scene, I doubt they will be able to cram that in there even if they had any intention of rushing, which they obviously don't.
What's it like to be cucked by a robot?
When they make things slow they need to have a reason for it.
Episode 10: Ends with>>161815121
Episode 11: Ends with Kill Mitty.
Episode 12: Nanachi backstory and killing MItty.
Episode 13: Depends on what that 60 minutes special actually is.
It fits. It will probably not go exactly like that, since they never adapt exactly 2 chapters (they always cut in between for whatever reason) but the content should be more or less the same.
You are adding too much fanfiction tier speculation, he doesn't need a defined goal, ozen didn't, and the other white whistles will do what they want for a while until they go on theirast dive. Bonedaddy wants to learn about the abyss and figure out ways to beat it. I think the whole pruska thing was just to get fluffy so he could see the curse and study it better(tried to take Nanachi but only got her eyes). I don't think he was expecting to get bested by robot-kun and friends.
Will we ever get an explanation for why pruska turned Bondrew into fluff but also turned into a white whistle for Riko??
>Will we ever get an explanation for why pruska turned Bondrew into fluff but also turned into a white whistle for Riko??
Prushka wasn't the one who blessed Bone, all the other cartridges did. Prushka was fine until she sacrificed herself for Riko's sake.
>Prushka wasn't the one who blessed Bone, all the other cartridges did.
Why do so many retards get this shit wrong.
maybe that's why ozen was so distraught. She realized lyza was some sort of sick pervert unfit for society. Tsukushi is a genius at allegory.
Ozen = japan's older generation
Lyza = japan's disturbed youth making the country crash and burn
What does that make Riko, then?
Speed whistles come up with wrong speculations and broken theorys that they think work and make sense because they glossed over key information and more than likely bad translations.
>Nanachi is immune to curses
>His aim was pretty well-defined: do whatever it takes to survive the Dawn, and save as many people along the way, and being a narehate was obviously the key to that since Year 2K is going to affect only humans and not the native wildlife, which fluffs are also part of
Jesus christ think about it.
If it was that easy then what would be the point, all the body's would be fluffy by then
because Bondrewd didn't start using love until the last generation of cartridges (which included Prushka). Bondrewd's blessings started as he began using up the other kids, not Prushka.
It's truly amazing how stupid some people are. He even explicitly states that they've never gotten this far before and it's constantly mentioned how Prushka is special/different.
The debaucherous life that Lyza(the youth) has led gave us riko(potato) ((Irish potato famine, anyone?)). Pretty clear what Tsukushi meant with that decision, given the decline in japan's population.
Just as soon as he beats Splatoon 2.
The anime is in chapter 18 still and there's only 3 eps left, no way it's happening
I really hope we get a second season though
It's implied with this page, where he goes "so this is the blessing..." followed by listing the names of the cartridges he just ejected, including Prushka at the end. There's no impression of Pruska being unique at all in this scene. What I got from it was that Prushka was special because she was the one who inspired him to start raising the kids with love. Without her he wouldn't have been able to achieve this state, as he said earlier, but if Prushka alone was enough then he wouldn't have acted like this.
>I think the whole pruska thing was just to get fluffy so he could see the curse and study it better(tried to take Nanachi but only got her eyes).
Well, he factually says upon finishing his transformation that the preparations have been made so that they may step into the next 2000 years, how is that "fanfiction-tier speculation" if the character himself in most straightforward way states that? How was that not his main goal if that was the conclusion of his most important experiment so far?
>and figure out ways to beat it
How is that vastly different from
>and alltogether he strived to colonize it and make the Abyss an actual habitable place.
especially granted that he both secured a relatively safe route to layer 5 and built a functional base there with adequate living conditions.
>Will we ever get an explanation for why pruska turned Bondrew into fluff but also turned into a white whistle for Riko?
As I see it, she loved them both and as much as she desired to help her father, because of how sheltered and friendless she was upon hearing about Riko's wonderful adventures she also really wanted her to go further down.
The scrolling down was just so they could show the size of the fish
I still haven't given up hopes but I fear next episode won't do justice to Tamaugachi.
One of the things made it so scary was how it just appeared a few meters behind Riko/Reg without any of them noticing, almost perfect ambush. Yet we saw how the anime treated the spider-thing ambush early on.
Another thing is the "dark aura/fog" thing that Tsukushi uses in the comic to accent dreadful scenes but the anime don't use those, as we saw when Ozen suited up.
These all have names too, he knew the names of all the kids. Pruska was special, she gave him the curse
They are curse repellent. He remembers all of the kids names. That's it. That doesn't fucking mean that everyone is Prushka.
See fucking>>161815855 retard. He's saying "a level we could not reach" which clearly doesn't mean "a level we've reached dozens of times with dozens of children".
Besides, even if it was true he would have received the blessing by now. No reason not to if he already had cartridges made with love prepared before Riko and co even got there.
Because Bondrewd fans are desperate
also look at this scene, where he just discarded Reshma and describes her life as he gains blessed feet. You telling me Reshma did nothing and was discarded for no reason, and Prushka was behind this? Come on.
Not him, but here >>161815855 Bon is obviously saying that Riko&co managed to stir shit up to such a degree that it reinforced Prushka's love towards her dad through the miracle of resurrection. That's why he allowed them to kill him.
Correct. He needed something like that to reinforce Prushka's love to the extent of "completion", and he explicitly said that he couldn't do it without their help, literally confirming that there's no other kid like Prushka even if he had tried.
I think you're implying that the cartridges are used up one at a time and not all at once with the pruska one simply being the last few to fall. Reshma just couldn't take any more curse and died first
For scientific purposes of course
Testing Stockholm syndrome of rape victims
For scientific purposes
No. They work together, one shielding the next cartridge but not completely, if that was true then Bondrew wouldn't have turned until the last cartridge was dropped. They just lighten the curse.
But your whole argument is based on the cartridges being used one at a time, which isint true
You take a little kid.
Remove all the parts that can't absorb the curse.
Stuff them into a suitcase.
And then you carry them while ascending and the curse won't affect you at all, because the loli soup will endure the torment for you.
The out of character moments and inconsistency in its depiction of the 3rd layer curse threw me off from the latest episode. I should have known once the mangaka only "supervised" it considering Miyazaki "supervised" Dark Souls 2 and Tsurumaki "supervised" FLCL 2/3.
Imagine the curse like a super hot flame
Imagine the cartridges as ice cubes
You are a person shielding himself from heat with four or five ice cubes
The first ice cube will soak up most of the heat and melt the quickest but they are not perfect and the ice cubes behind it and you will still get hot,
>Remove all the parts that can't absorb the curse.
the hell does that mean? do only certain bodyparts "absorb" curses?
The author really needs to release an extra-chapter encyclopedia detailing how the hell Bondaddy's cartridge system works.
This is one of the few times I've found Riko cute.
Do you even read bro?
The only part makes the curse target you is the brain and consciousness. If you have a body attached to that consciousness it'll be broken too, so removing the body will only leave the brain and will be a lot lighter to carry
>tfw original models were lolis with arms and legs cut off carried in a backpack
technically he's right. what we know is that he used to wear more masculine clothes in the past, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's a boy. Maruruk could be a reverse trap passing as a trap.
>Maruruk could be a reverse trap passing as a trap
Thanks, that's my new headcanon now.
>Ahh, then there is no need for concern. Those aren't being used by humans.
How do you respond to this one, Bongele apologists?
>Tsukushi says the chapter will be "late"
>this is after 30 days since the previous chapter was released
>nearing 60 days since last release
>no words from Tsukushi
What are those black shadows that serve "justice" at the market place when someone destroys or steals anothers belonging?
I took you out of the Abyss and I can take you back out again! Then you'll have to start this glacial show all over again!
>Then you'll have to start this glacial show all over again!
Don't even joke about that.
She real dumb and hella heartless, little bastard straight up retorted. Hopefully Reg gets out of this horrible relationship before his life goes to even more shit with Riko attached.
So, I have been enjoying this series and its sense of fun and adventure up until now. I got impatient and went and read the manga and I was aware that it got dark but what the fuck? Surely they aren't going to go this far in the TV show, that fucking inhuman lump and the arm?
Run while you can for I will make you all pay for what you did to my Lyza!
A power of one of (or all?) the three sages that created the town. Assuming they aren't straight up wizards, they're probably using a heap of artifacts to accomplish all this magic shit.
>Is chapter 43 out yet?
>Skimmed through the thread, and people seem to mention untranslated pages
Those are extra pages from volume 6 (which spans chapters 39-42 and was released few weeks ago).
Arm is coming in the next episode. Just a few more days.
Will we ever find out how big Ozen's cock is?
But that's not true. You can find cute, friendly rats down there, for example.
I hope they include Mark volume inserts for the western release!
Speaking of monsters, I've always really liked this panel, felt really impactful when I read the manga for the first time.
So I was wondering are people going to be disappointed if the TV show shies away from showing the most gruesome parts? I don't mean like they outright don't happen but if it cuts away and things like that so as not to show the real violence but implies it? Because I think that will inevitably happen.
I thought Spargamos was only able to be fired in one direction from his elbow?
I knew that. Was just asking about which relic of his projected them.
Yes, he lives. The Soul Slave Machine was destroyed off panel, but Bondrewd had backups. Remember that he's split his soul thousands of times even before the Machine was destroyed.
I think it would be illegal on terrestrial TV without censorship but not on cable but I still have the feeling that if it is censored even in the slightest mangafags will complain like fuck.
Really now? Because I was under the impression that the machine worked sort of like a "host" to his soul and if it was destroyed then he would be unable to maintain his consciousness spread with all those bodies. I think maybe they didn't destroy it and simply used it as a bluff like "if you don't leave us alone we will destroy it".
>Bone Daddy is alive?
>but why didn't they destroy his ass machine?
They didn't have enough time and were in a rush, and he was unable to oppose them anyways since they got rid of all the combat praying hands on idofront, while the flamethrower guy and presumably others were dispersed on other layers. Also Nanachi respects Riko's wish to leave Bon alone, which probably came from Prushka.
>I thought Spargamos was only able to be fired in one direction from his elbow?
I think its safe to assume that since sparagmos is more focused than incinerator and has less AoE it can be fired for a prolonged amount od time, like at least several slashes.
>The Soul Slave Machine was destroyed off panel
That is really debatable, we cant know for sure. On one hand, 7chi says that they're going to destroy it, but that was before Bon's proclamations of fatherly love, and besides, I see no reason for Reg to ask if its okay to leave him like that if they have already destroyed it. Again, they're on a time budget, incinerator shots are in a limited supply as well and I doubt you can really destroy Zoaholic with Reg's whirly hands since it mentions that even a single touch is enough to implant someone with Bondrewd's identity.
>Because I was under the impression that the machine worked sort of like a "host" to his soul and if it was destroyed then he would be unable to maintain his consciousness spread with all those bodies.
That is definitely not true, in chapter 38 Nanachi says that even if they destroyed the Zoaholic it wouldn't stop Bondrewd, so the network of bodies is already established and the main purpose of Zoaholic to make fresh ones, not to maintain the whole thing I think.
>I thought Spargamos was only able to be fired in one direction from his elbow?
That's right. But he can move his elbow, you know.
>I was under the impression that the machine worked sort of like a "host" to his soul and if it was destroyed then he would be unable to maintain his consciousness spread with all those bodies.
No, you're definitely wrong on this one. Reread the page, the answer is explicit. Nanachi says "We can't kill you because of how much you've multiplied, but we can at least foil your aspirations by destroying the Zoaholic."
>why didn't they destroy his ass machine?
It wasn't mentioned if they did it or not in the end. Some people say that they wanted to just leave right away and left it untouched, some believe it was destroyed off-screen. You are free to interpret it yourself. I think they destroyed it, because I can't believe they would have just let him get away with everything he did.
>I think they destroyed it, because I can't believe they would have just let him get away with everything he did.
Then why didn't they kill the remaining praying hands or destroy any of the equipment? Checkmate.
Unironically though, that stance is completely valid as well, and in the end it really doesn't matter that much since his story is finished and I hope he wont appear again since that would reduce the impact that he had on overall plot.
BONEDREW TAKES NANACHI VISION
The further down you go the more time dilation occurs, is Bondrew seeing Nanachis vision in high speed or is it in normal speed with everything else in slow motion? Did he just cheat the abyss and have the fastest mind in the world?
We know nothing about Nanachi vision at all except for the fact that it exists. We don't know how it works, what he can see, what he used to get Nanachi vision, how long he can look at a time, anything.
Does Riko suffer from fetal alcohol syndrome?
I think he is witnessing things in real time and normal speed, regardless of the layer. Remember that he knew when Nanachi and Reg finally bid farewell to Mitty, and that the flamethrower brodrewd in flower garden also knew about Nanachi's precise position.
>what he used to get Nanachi vision
I'm pretty sure it has to be Zoaholic, that would be the only reasonable explanation.
You and me both. It was glossed over so hard and there was no justification for Nanachi to jump to that conclusion. Going from "we're being spyed on somehow" to "he must be looking through my eyes" was one of the most immersion breaking scenes in the series.
>>I think they destroyed it, because I can't believe they would have just let him get away with everything he did.
>Then why didn't they destroy any of the equipment?
I was thinking about prevention more than about vengeance there. After all, Bondrewd did all his monstrous deeds because of his ambition, not just for the sake of it. Nanachi seemed convinced that destroying the Zoaholic and other equipment would end that ambition and I trust her on that. If they destroyed the Zoaholic, they surely destroyed other equipment too, enough of it to stop Bondrewd for foreseeable future.
>Then why didn't they kill the remaining praying hands
Destroying other Praying hands just wasn't apparently needed for halting and would only serve to cause pain to Bondrewd. And they respected Prushka's love enough to avoid that.
>in the end it really doesn't matter that much since his story is finished and I hope he wont appear again since that would reduce the impact that he had on overall plot.
We agree on that.
>I'm pretty sure it has to be Zoaholic, that would be the only reasonable explanation.
The problem is we still don't really know how that works either. There's always a debate in here about whether it's a hivemind, or literal clones, or consciousness hopping with the manga giving somewhat conflicting information
>He can't "jump" between layers, but he himself claims that every Praying hand is Bondrewd. And the Riko's description of the Zoaholic says it copies your soul but if it really did that why would he need to "jump"
My guess is that he had a camera feed installed on every one of his subjects, at the very least you can see that he has an entire wall of life sign monitors for each of them.
Not to mention that if they were to fight the remaining Bone Corps they would probably push Reg hard enough that he'd have to use Incinerator another one or two times, so it was in their best interest to avoid confrontation.
Probably something like that, but it still makes no sense for Nanachi to know about it out of nowhere. And if she knew about it before reaching Bondrewd why not bring it up to warn Riko and Reg.
She probably just deduced that based on the fact that Bondrewd knew everything she saw but didn't know about what she didn't see. I'd have to go reread the chapter to check if that makes sense tho.
This anon is correct. nanachi later confirms Bondrewd did experiments on her eyes and implanted some way of tracking in her; that's why he knows what she's seen bt not what she knows/hears for example.
No, that one is actually not a good argument. It was said by Nanachi that Bondrewd must have run out of combat-capable Praying Hands. If that's really the case, then Reg could've just killed them all rather effortlessly, but the team just didn't want that to happen.
The machine is neither confirmed to be destroyed or intact but I think it's safe to say it's intact.
Originally, he wanted to dissect and research all three of them but after Nana won, Bondrewd was fine with letting them go and he's very relaxed about it. He doesn't even really panic when they blow up most of the building; you think someone would have commented on having actually destroyed the machine at some point or SOMETHING would happen.
Right now, all Bondrewd's going to do is adopt a new child from birth, adopt them like Prushka, restart his research and start experimenting on drones again and fake his death again.
Just like before. Most of this huge fight for the heroes seems to have been an, at most, moderately important thing on him.
I don’t know if this episode was made with the intention of showing “Action Riko”, since unless they make radical changes she will be unconscious for a few episodes, but what I have seen it appears it didn’t earn her that many points, they should have think in a way to have Riko on her own without making her look like a reckless idiot
She says no such thing about experiments or implants, this is all
He was lamenting that the flower garden in his memories was destroyed, anon.
If Bondrewd could actually read his mind don't you think that might've come up in, I don't know, the big fight that hinged on keeping Riko's presence with the incinerator a secret?
I think that 7chi trivia and the exposition presented in scenes with Geira was enough to give us at least a rough idea of how it works. Geira, even after being turned into a praying hand, initially still expressed a certain degree of free will. In the scene with Prushka he even suggested to just ditch her, to which Bondrewd argued that they should save her instead. However, in the scene with Reg probing, he was one of the mindless hands, speaking in very abrupt, short sentances, so I think your mind deteriorates as the time goes and the more Bondrewd hijacks your body for whatever needs. You're also most likely under a heavy charm effect and cant disobey any of Bondrewds orders, which is also sort of mentioned in 7chi trivia IIRC.
So in the end, I'd say that Praying Hands are semi-autonomous. They are like Bondrewd in many ways, as in they share his ideals and general views since they've been implanted with his soul, but they also can do stuff on their own while main Drewd is busy doing some other stuff.
>He can't "jump" between layers
Where did that come from? I think the only remote evidence of that is the umbra hand saying "the way to cross the layers is prone to troubles", but its very vague and honestly could be referring to just the fact that Bondrewd has to expend cartridges, which are in limited supply, to traverse between the layers.

He doesn't needs carts to go from 5 -> 4, the curse there isn't fatal. When they're figuring out how the Zoaholic/mask works Nanachi reasons it out.
>since he can come back fine anyway?
He can't come back fine. The cartridges are limited. During his fight with Reg, he exhausted five cartridges and that was only enough to ascend up from his "garden" to Idofront.
From the Y2K purge. Are you yet another person who missed the special chapters?
some of my headcannon:
so its like wifi, the umbra hands are free moving access points
white whistle stays and defends the command post
harnessing the power from his garden or something
also the team of delvers that arrive at ozens after riko leaves
leader joins them? they died in the garden? bugs create mini cartridges that are then used to create umbra hands, was leader the moon whistle shown reacting to red while being eaten? is leaders eye shown >>161820501
Here good anon
Once, while ascending from the sixth layer, he tried fapping to the idea of a shota canister strapped to his back.
The results were inconclusive.
>looking through Pixiv for Prushka
>two pages, finish up and decide to search Made in Abyss in general
>all those mistagged images with Prushka
That would be a huge dick move, but I can totally see it happening
I kinda like the white hair strip version better, I see it more as a hereditary thing than age related
Nanachi pants are similar to Reg’s, bigger that they should be, their legs aren’t that big
Nanachi pants are bigger, but yeah, they are mostly oversized, their legs aren’t actually that big
I think the event is because time goes so quickly there that all those tags seem to be arriving at the same time (despite being thrown out hours/days/weeks apart) so maybe time is extremely fast forwarded there (1hour = 1week up top)
I'm tired of seeing that badly-photoshopped picture around so I tried drawing my own Ozen
>saying this one episode away from tama
On the chance this isn't bait, just wait for the next episode. They're going to hit the difficulty spike and have a very bad time.
I would unironically be fine with this.
>prushka x papa
>not prushka x regu or
prushka x 7chi
I know it's canonically the logical choice, but I still don't like it.
Early days yet anon. There's still time. Tons of doujin artist don't even reveal their shit until the week of an event. The nanachi x reg doujin was shown on saturday of kemoket when and sold on sunday
7chi would be at home at Kemoket.
Like a slightly above average body temperature moth that is fuzzy and apparently in heat during most of the year. Also, slightly sweet notes like maple or sugarcane as well as more hearty things like grain, or a field thick with grass. With subtle notes that you can't quite place, yet somehow feel nostalgic. And finally a smooth finish that evokes the same senses that react to a summer rainshower. More complex than the bun, for sure. A scent you'll come back for 10 years down the line.
Are little boys supposed to cover themselves up like that when showering?
