Oh-ho. Badge bot seems to hold some sort of rank in Court, he was with the human staff of the power station. Is this the point where they realize this shit is getting out of hand?

Or does Badge-bot want to fuck his brown waifu?

Well, guess it's the second option then.

Or he's a spy of some sort, or maybe just watching this shit of his own accord. This is the first time he's had frame focus I think, so it is probably pertinent to the chapter.

Could be either, but for the cult as a whole this might be the part where they collectively hit a reality check?
Last panel's a pretty stark contrast to the usual reaction to S13's sermons.

That's true, I guess the promise of actually having flesh maybe is a tad too far for them? And this is post-Torn Sea, and that business was rather unsavory for everyone, even if they are unaware of Robot being Satan and Jesus at this point.
>>
Okay mates, someone is going to have to explain this to me.
What actually is Kat trying to achieve here?
Thanks in advance.
>>
>>78333866
It looks like her motives are very straightforward. She's trying to make a machine that grows, improves, and repairs itself on its own. She does not appear to recognize the ramifications of these adjustments on robot society, though.
>>
>>78333866

Make Robot a new body. Being Kat she is taking it very, very far. It will end in blood.
>>
She's just trying to science up new types of robot construction, based ever more heavily on biological precepts, more or less for the hell of it.

She certainly isn't chill with the little she has experienced of the cult that's grown from it.

Why bio-mecha though? Why making it feel all the same? Where's the Court authority when you need them? What kind of bullshit argument "because he's my friend" is? Why new body? Why doesn't the "new realm of existence" sound an alarm in her head?
Thanks to all of you.

>>78333986
Stop talking shit, please.
>>
Yo fuck that bitching, niggas ain't kicking up shit when you have dudes that are unrealistically good at lots of shit.
>>
>>78334028

She wants to make a fleshy robot. She got the idea in her head and is following to it's conclusion. Also, "He's my friend and I can help him while doing something I enjoy" is a perfectly valid reason.

And the Court authority seems to be unable to give any shits about anything; they let Zimmy run rampant, and let their army of sentient, self-replicating machines just kinda do whatever. They are severely out of touch, if not actually malevolent.
>>
>>78334094
Any chances it will bite her in the ass in the end?
That being said (asked?), did anything ever bite anyone in the ass? Antimony's pops maybe?

>They are severely out of touch, if not actually malevolent.
Now, this is a trope worth exploring.
>>
>>78334028
Court authority actively encourages students who make groundbreaking research to carry it out. They'll step in if things get out of hand, kind of a statement about man's hubris, but the potential benefit outweighs the perceived risk for now. Self repairing robots that are expendable are worth their weight in gold.
>>
>>78334277
Diego got it hard, Rey got it hard in falling in love with Surma, Anthony got it maybe worst of all in following old gods directions to save his wife/daughter.

Antimony's cheating. Anthony's autism. Eglamore's um, I don't know, but whatever he did to lose Surma. Diego's entire life. Renard's cock. Surma's faith in her husband(?)
>>
No, suffering is not a currency-like state that puts value to your action.
>>
>>78334322
>that are expendable
Niggas are about to start feel things. The moment niggas feel things is the moment they cease being expendable like some tools or whatever.

>>78334322
Self replicating nanomachines, or something, that don't feel things seem like more of a groundbreaking research that won't kill their masters soon enough, but whatever.

>>78334346
>>78334430
I see.
Cheers.

>>78334385
Dunno mate, but it doesn't outright says "lets do a bio mechs because of this pigeon".
>>
>>78334502
No, it uses images to tell you something, instead of words. This is one of the ways comics can convey ideas.
>>
>>78334502
Kat drew inspiration from the baby pigeon's wings to make a more versatile functioning limb, something she'd been trying in vain to derive from Diego's robots. Her mother tried the same thing and failed, but maybe Kat can push thing further? She also drew inspiration from the ship.

Agreed, the court appeared to have an interest in such.
>>
>>78334516
That inventors draw inspiration from nature all the fucking time?
Does not make the "pigeon --> bio mechs that feel and think they are people" assumption any more justifiable.

>>78334552
I get that. I don't get why she decided to roll with biobots for Gods' sake.
What is the point here? What kind of advantages to both the robots and the people of the Court there is in that?
I really really doubt there will be a killing spree or whatever when the bots realise they are being hurt by the way the Court uses them, but it could be explored, no?
Also, AFAIK it's easier to weld a goddamn robot and put it back to use than wait however long it takes for his puny ass bio limbs to heal themselves.
Or is this going to be only used on this one bot and possibly on Antimony's pops? Huh?

>>78334564
Aight, let's stop exploring characters and their motivation just because and/or you decide to call someone an autist on the Internet. You sure showed me, friend.

Yes.
I'm sure of it now!
You're an idiot.

>Anja and Donnie
I would love to know if Kat's parents are aware that their daughter is retroactively becoming a machine goddess. Actually, if it's a retroactive thing, maybe their memories will chance to suit the new iteration of reality.

Also, Anja a cute.

Why doesn't the "new realm of existence" sound an alarm in her head?

She's lived her whole life among the court robots, and has come to see them as goofy and innofensive servants, any sense of threat coming from them is dulled by her mental image of the robots.

I think everyone is expressing distaste at Tom's use of an old and tired Facebook/Vine meme (deez nuts) from months ago, which was in turn a reuse of an even older joke. It's got some bad associations.
Or maybe it's just

oh no, she was a machine god all along.
It's from her that the court was grown, and it's her who made the birdbots.

the robobirds weren't made by diego.
and the robots he made were built accessing some kind of etheric robostuff.
And the court was grown from a seed

>>78336729
In Tom's defense, he makes pages and uploads them long before they are released, so this might've been done when it was still all the craze

Ot he's just making fun of dumb vine humor

Tom hitting the nail right on the head:

Most of these chapters that prompt /co/ to complain about poor pacing are chapters that read well once they're complete.
