So far it's definitely OST of the season or even the year. It's jazzy as fuck.
Also just by watching
and reading the mangathe author is a fan of Del Toro and Mike Mignola, which makes me really happy, since they're my favorite movie director and comic artist.
And westerns, although that's probably no surprise. Nightow is a huge westaboo. Happily, he has great taste in westaboo stuff.
Also, it seems that either he or one of the animators really likes Pacific Rim too.
Well thanks for making it. I kept forgetting to download those samples.
So looking at episode 4 preview does that mean we are getting a bit of plot? Also more action as well.
the episode kind of confused me
the chess grandmaster just happened to be there when klaus showed up right? there wasn't some kind of previous setup for this that I missed?
Also why was playing the game with this alterworld guy killing the human players?
From what I understand, the Arururururu guy is an alterworld mafia godfather who can get you all kinds of shit, but he's a big fan of that chess game. Chess Grandmaster was there for his own reasons to get some nukes for ukraine. Klaus was there for get information.
You know the spirit room? Basically they were playing chess there. It takes a high level of concentration and gets harder the longer you play. Not to mention no breaks and high stakes leading to even more stress. And then there's Klaus played for 99 hours.
>the chess grandmaster just happened to be there when klaus showed up right? there wasn't some kind of previous setup for this that I missed?
The grandmaster alien dude set it up specifically so that the russian guy would show up just before Klaus and Klaus would be forced to extend his playtime to save him
>gets harder the longer you play
man maybe it was lost in translation or something but "it gets harder the longer you play" doesn't exactly mean "your brain starts imploding after a while" to me
Ah yeah he pretty much said that and I totally missed it because I'm stupid
It gets harder and harder and he was playing against an opponent worlds of skill above his for ten hours straight with the knowledge that he was going to be killed if he didn't reach the time limit.
He basically exhausted himself and got scared shitless.
But klaus starting bleeding out of his nose, and the grandmaster guy looked like his eyes were about to explode out of his fucking head so that made me think that this chamber thing was putting a great amount of physical duress on the players and the alien guy was either used to it or immune to it for some undisclosed reason
Now I've never tried to stay awake for 100 hours straight but I wouldn't imagine sleep deprivation would give you nosebleeds
Looks like that's right. It looks like the main focus is going to be introducing Abrams and
the blood breeds.
Also holy hell Stephen is even hotter when he's been roughed up a bit.
It's sleep deprivation plus stress. The stress is the important part. They are playing at maximum ability and super focused just to not get blown apart by this guy. Literally one minor fuck up and they lose. It's hard as fuck to keep that level of concentration and focus going for prolonged periods. And yeah, extreme stress can cause shit like random nosebleeds, burst veins, etc.
I feel like they could have used like an extra 5 minutes on that whole sequence, it felt really rushed and it felt like it didn't carry any weight behind it
I mean obviously Klaus isn't going to die on episode 3 I'm not a fucking idiot, so just knowing that took all the tension away and then like I said before, it just felt like it went by too fast
