>let's trek 10,000 miles to a place in the heart of Festum territory to hide from humans
>not take what they can to the island, a place that's heavily fortified with tons of fafners, a barrier, and you can only get there if you already know where it is
This is a good plan. I'm in favor of this
I like how every SDP we'd seen except Sakura's and Canon's had been an ability either Sein, Nicht, or a Festum had used at some point prior in the franchise. And I guess maybe to some extent Sakura's ability to summon a spawn-field was seen before.
You could also guess that Azazel types had some moderate clairvoyance, regarding Dreizehn.
And bring whatever physic abomination spy hiding within them into the island?
They gonna wake up to laughing Bellcross and Walker every morning and the two will be having fun making new freaky festum to throw at them.
Not counting the people who are away with Narain, there's the new team, Canon's which she currently isn't using, and I think a couple more that are simply kept in storage.
>And bring whatever physic abomination spy hiding within them into the island?
The creepy kid? Didn't Narain say that thing is basically a ghost to fuck with you?
They needed someone to send back to the Island.
He made an assumption based on the Nicht's previous battle records.
But holy shit Soushi has the exact kind of voice I love
1. That'd put them in the crosshairs of at least 3 Azazel type Festum, and the Nuns since the Nuns spy satellite can effectively track Walker and the Azazel's are making full use of the Nuns.
2. That require a massive air transport which they lack the proper amount for because they've been using land vehicles to transport a good portion of the refuges. They don't have nearly enough Fafners to both allow for multiple back and forth trips because Bellcross will attack those who stay, Walker will attack those are coming, Space Godzilla will do knows what, and the Nuns will shoot whoever they can down
3. You'd be literally tripling or quadrupling the population of Tatsumiya Island, which calls into question available land masses they'd have to defend when many of the smaller islands are used for engagements. This is ignoring the strain on supplies
They just got to hold up till Sky-Kun 2.0 and the Eurus Types make it. I better fucking get a fucking shot of Eurus Type saving a bus load of people, making that creepy baby face to try and calm them down before putting them down.
>implying Bellcross isn't gonna eat Walker cause Walker is a bitch.
>The creepy kid?
No, the zombie
Would they have really bothered to repair it? It way underperforms the Nothungs.
We've got like 4(?) extra cores to kit out new Fafners with.
Ok, so bear with me.
In the DA OP. All of the characters that got assimilated/ded drifted towards the screen. This was telegraphed.
Soushi (who we know is "no longer in this world") and Canon wipe in from the same direction, while Maya and Kaz wipe in from the other.
Hiroto and Rina both wipe in from the same direction.
Just finished the episode, god so much Akira and Maya suffering, Maya atleast has Kazuki for emotional support, but Akira wanting to save Hiroto? Good thing they packed Hiroto into a lunchbox and labeled it for him eh, wonder how that will turn out, just shoot him now why don't you.
Somehow this human enemy angle is hitting me worse than everything else.
It's bad enough that aliens are coming to eat us all, yet we are still dumb enough to have these infighting? This kills me worse than all those death before. For what? Some tech? Revenge?
Fucking hell man, I didn't need this feel. I hope they all die horribly.
Given the show, they probably will, which is about the only comfort of mind I have right now.
Atleast have the decency to post the lunchbox for Gobain's sake. Hiroto had it good, he died without any suffering.
>he died without any suffering.
You better hope to god he got incinerated before the pain feedback kicked in.
I hope this too. And then he ends up living anyway despite his efforts to kill himself.
Worse yet: ends up having to live in Tatsumiyajima drawing manga for the rest of his life. Everytime he tries to kill himself, someone punches him and tells him he has to live for the humans he killed.
core, so are Fafners
>Worse yet: ends up having to live in Tatsumiyajima drawing manga for the rest of his life
And then Mark Wahlberg comes in and shoots him t the very end of the series?
Fuck ; That's it isn't it.
Space Godzilla is the only Festum that has the same ability as Canon.
Once it realizes that Canon has it's ability it'll probably divert ALL forces to crushing the island.
That's why Walker got pissed. Space Godzilla's been feeding him future visions and he was all "WHAT THE FUCK" at the end of the first cour.
When will Soushi realize he is just watching his loli harem die? How many girls is it now?
>Minashiro Tsubaki (dead)
>Minashiro Orihime (Not looking good)
Dude needs to step up a little and not just be the ultimate bro-tier wingman for Kazuki and Maya.
Not falling for your tricks, Satan. I know it was you!
Same, also on the off chance anyone missed it
Man, Soushi is such a chuuni. All those years of not piloting must have taken a toll.
Finally finished the episode and HOLY SHIT
I see some people doubting it, but that has to be Kurusu, right? Whatever the backup was, Soushi clearly recognized them. Man I did not expect to see him so soon.
>but that has to be Kurusu, right?
Yeah, there's literally nobody doubting it, except one guy thought it was Koyo...
Remember the preview still from one of those events way back? Where they showed the lil' baby? Yeah, Sky-kun II inbound
Because the old bitch is basically /m/.
>WHY ARE THEY EVEN TRYING TO TALK TO THE FILTHY ALIENS
>MUH SENMETSU DEWEY WAS RIGHT
And then she fed them some bullshit about how they're all mind controlled and need to die.
Which is actually pretty amusing because since the whole thing is built on lies, there's a serious chance Dustin might actually realize he's being retarded at some point. And considering the entire board is out for his blood that would be one hell of a cockblock.
Also on the whole Kurusu thing, was I the only one who thought this piece of shit sounded like Ryouhei Kimura?
I'm probably wrong, and no idea if this guy's even in the credits to confirm, but he stuck out. If Kurusu is coming back it'd make some sense for his VA to be around for minor characters here and there.
Yea, his voice was really standout-ish, in the 2 or so scenes he spoke why carrying Hiroto's lifeless fafner back, no idea if it's Rouhei or not though since I'm not at home to check
>the entire board
ahem...As evidenced by the footage, Doma was just in the way of the carefully aimed laser. It could've happened to anyone. Except Maya. dem dodge skillz got dayum
In all serious though, fuck Hester and fuck the Argus Platoon
Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if that ends up happening. If he finds out he's being manipulated and acknowledges that he's been an asshole, he'll probably end up switching sides. I seriously doubt they'll actually forgive him (particularly Akira), but I expect they'd be willing to accept him as an ally.
And you know what? I wouldn't mind. After all, his case isn't too different from that of the Festum. Just like the early Festum, he's killing people due to misinformation, believing that he's doing the right thing. So it amuses me that the fans give him such a hard time in comparison, simply because he's human.
Now, if the show tried to redeem Hester, that's an entirely different matter. Then I'd be mad as fuck.
Billys' too nice a guy/naive for that. Dustin might take him by force but good people don't usually get roped into their families bullshit if their family is being assholes.
Hopefully Billy is also practical when it's time to EXTERMINATE Dustin.
Highly unlikely. He obviously doesn't want to fight his brother, but it seems clear that he'd rather do that than start slaughtering random civilians.
Especially since, unlike Dustin's team, he knows that the Srinagar group aren't Festum.
It's honestly amazing how fast people seem to have forgotten the reason why they're attacking. It's not a case of "we love being assholes, so let's go murder some civilians." They legitimately think that they're eliminating a major threat.
Akira has very good reasons to be in a constant fit of rage though. He isn't Shin, no matter how much he looks like him. I honestly wish they would let him tear the UNs a new asshole already.
I would assume that they brought at least some spare parts on the plane. That said, it would be awesome to give Zehn a Powers Model arm. Maybe switch over to Neun's parts once he finds out Rina is dead/a vegetable.
Ignorant, mainly. They completely missed the part where engaging dialogue with Festum was possible. So to them, attempting to live in peace with aliens=clearly assimilated, shoot on sight.
>gets the Zero
>starts raging so hard even Rina's all "whoa calm down"
A bit from column A, a bit from column B. They think those who want peace with the Festum have already been assimilated by them and need to be killed. At least I think that's what it was.
But it's not like the Fafners are made from Nintendium. They chopped Mark Funf to pieces with a plasma/laser blade thing.
I always assumed the Nothung Models didn't really have good armor because it wouldn't matter in the face of Festum worm spheres. It would make sense to not bother much with armor and have them be lighter.
>So to them, attempting to live in peace with aliens=clearly assimilated, shoot on sight.
While I do not condone their course of action, I can see their point. Would you wanna live on the same planet with a bunch of alien shit that murdered like 1/2 of humanity not so long ago?
Mark Zehn itself tanked one pretty well when he tried to protect the bus.
Your average Nothung needs a big-ass thruster pack or strapping itself to a plane to fly. Zero is twice as big and has neither. It has weird shoulder things, that's about it, and I think they're there because of all the built-in beams.
>weird shoulder things
Probably its waterjet propulsion, the thing was developed for amphibious assault back when Festum couldn't go underwater.
If I recall correctly Mark elf is 40m while Zero is 100m tall.
I understand the reasoning that they are attacking because of the possibility that the survivors are assimilated. But we've seen the way assimilated humans act, behave, and speak. Surely once Maya forced contact with the bombers, they should've realized that the people down there were not at a threat.
That's because of the Mir Core. It imparts an ability to resist the Spheres and slows the Festum's ability to assimilate anything with one. Remember how Mark Zehn survives the sphere unharmed but all the kids die? It was because of the core, not the armor. That's why the new NUNs models with Mir Cores are much better than the old ones, they aren't just more efficient power sources. Traditional armor does nothing against Festum's two main attack forms.
It's meant to show how the Nun's idealogy of "You can't risk saving anyone because you'll only lose more" is mirroring the chance in Festum and Humans.
The Festum enemy now more human. They laugh when their plans go well. They get angry when their plans go bad. They're using starvation tactics and hit and run.
Meanwhile the human enemy now fights emotionally or without thinking. They follow orders. They kill who they're told to kill. There's no point of dialogue. You kill the enemy and take what you can use from them.
Good morning /feg/gots
As big a meme as Koyo is at this point, I'm really really stoked to see a Slave Type get the Orange treatment.
>What was your favorite death?
Probably Michio for me. Dat snatch was sad, but masterfully executed
I don't know if it's explicitly mentioned in the show, that Mjolnir gave it to them, but yeah that was the implication
I always thought of in terms of where the sphere hits and the strength of the core. If the core is hit directly, the sphere is nullified completely, but the core gets weakened. Eventually the core loses strength to nullify attacks.
Of course, they could just aim at everything not the core, like what Misao did to Mark Vier.
Hey Festumbros, I had to reset my computer and now when I've gone and set up MPC again, the subtitles are off center. I remember one anon mentioned a very quick fix, but I just can't remember and also
>RIP in Peace, archive
Vier was completely intact when it was lost. The NUN recovered it later and used the core to build Mark Nicht. Presumably Koyo managed to steal it from whatever warehouse it was being keep in, assuming the NUN even bothered to recover the frame and didn't just take the core and leave Vier in the ocean. He was functioning as the core himself.
Vier didn't get that badly fucked up. Just a missing arm and a smallish hole Sakura cut. Doc B took the core out, then presumably added a fresh arm before getting Nicht'd. We never really saw what happened to that facility. Festum can get around pretty easily, so the rest fills itself in.
Technically just one. Tatsumiyajima probably resupplied him when he docked after the his reappearance.
Even disregarding not watching DA for a while, if you can't tell by the show that muh Nothung Model isn't vastly superior, you might wanna try watching the first half of Exodus.
I'm flying tonight. I'd be game, but can't for a few days...
IT'S LUCKY WE LIVED IN A COMMUNITY WHERE THERE'S A COMMUNAL BATH SO MOST PEOPLE HAD ALREADY SEEN US NAKED SINCE WE WERE KIDS SO IT WASN'T THAT BIG OF A DEAL
BUT IT'S THE PRINCIPLE OF THE MATTER
AFTERWARDS HIROTO TAPPED INTO NICHT'S AND SEIN'S AUDIO RECORDINGS AND SPLICED IT TO SOUND AS IF SOUSHI AND KAZUKI WERE HAVING SEX.
HE RAMPED UP THE VOLUME TO THE MAX AND LINKED IT TO THE ISLAND'S SIREN. HE MANAGED TO HIDE FROM THEM FOR TWO HOURS UNTIL THEY FOUND HIM.
THEY BEAT HIM SO HARD.
IN CONCLUSION, HIROTO WAS 16 AND HE LOVED BEING AN IDOL
HE COULDN'T ACTUALLY BE AN IDOL THOUGH AND IT DROVE US ALL NUTS
I GUESS THAT'S ALL I'M TRYING TO SAY HERE
THANK YOU FOR LISTENING, I'LL GO BACK TO
are you there?NOW.
SO IN CONCLUSION HIS NAME WAS HIROTO, HE LIKED TO FILM THINGS
HE WASN'T VERY GOOD AT IT THOUGH AND WOULD BROADCAST POINTLESS SHIT
I GUESS THAT'S ALL I'M TRYING TO SAY HERE
THANK YOU FOR LISTENING I'LL GO BACK TO SCREAMING ABOUT SHOKO AND KOYO NOW
So, like. When are we getting the new opening song sequence? Or is that one anon who said they're waiting to kill some characters first before they switch it a thing?
are they going to "kill" Kazuki next episode? Why did they pan to Sein at the end of this week's ep?!
I can't wait for the next casualty too
Or I wonder if it's possible the guy in this poster isn't actually Kazuki but Sky-kun II?
>Doesn't want to kill a living thing
>But kills Festum now
GET OVER IT ISLANDERS
THE FESTUM ARE JUST AS ALIVE AS PEOPLE NOW
JUST ACCEPT THAT YOU GOTTA KILL RETARDS ON BOTH SIDES WHO WON'T COOPERATE
I believe someone mentioned how they hand draw the most of the Fafners but use CGI mostly for the limbs/when things have to move.
I'm not an animation major so I can't really explain it. It just looks much smoother than a lot of other CGI to me.
Kanae Kaburagi must be stopped,
DEAD OR ALIVE
Go back, read his post, and think. He's saying compare it to CA. The idea is that one looks like ass, and one is Fafner.
I really like the look of the Ragna/Para-mails
Thanks chief. I remembered how to get the LAV settings good to go for non-default sub pairs (looking at you OZC), but the easy thing I couldn't
>Hester is Donald Trump
it all makes sense now
>get your very own Misao Kurusu
>Now comes in Makabe Kazuki flavor
I think it is him in that pic. Can't wait for the sad shower episode where he cuts it off with the mirror he broke in a fit of rage after being unable to save
>We're gonna build this wall and we're gonna make the festum pay for it.
Not even Mir possess the ability to revive the dead.
I felt every ounce of rage that Akira did that episode.
So what are the chances of Akira achieving the following by the end of Exodus:
1. have Maya reciprocate his feelings
2. save Hiroto
3. Have a non-dead/comatose twin sister
2. In his dreams.
3. I think this is likely. There's that tiny Billy/Rina flag...........
4. Maybe if Kazuki saves him.
Survival at the cost of lifelong grief and Maya never seeing him in any romantic way for the rest of his life.
0.001% if they actually pull some Festum Magic and he's in the core.
0.001% only because if Hiroto survives that means Canon and Rina are too.
100%. He's on the same path as Kenji.
Post yfw Akra eats a Hiroto burger by accident
>1. have Maya reciprocate his feelings
>2. save Hiroto
>3. Have a non-dead/comatose twin sister
He'll be ok.
Biggest Fafner when?
I'd say 3 or 4 miiiiiiight be possibilities. Even with SDP effects I feel like Rina is slightly safer on the island. But she was one of the first ones Canon saw dead...
And 1 is even less likely than 2. Sorry Akira.
>Akira using the Zero to pull a Nun's Fafner in half before stomping the cockpit
Don't forget the Eurus types! There's a reason they haven't shown up with any of the Azazel types.
So this but replace Bellcross with Zero
So, see he actually pulls the entire thing apart. Like he rips it in two with his hands, the cockpit falls to the ground and he stomps it.
Or alternatively Akira preforms the NICHT DUNK on a fleeing Pilot
You are now imagining a high stakes game of Basketball played by Fafners, but instead of a massive basketball, they throw around Worm Spheres.
Everybody get up...
On another note, what's up with Hirai and twins?
Nobody told me the Arcadian Memory OVA was just music played over scenes instead of a normal clipshow. No dialogue, no narration, so no need for subs.
Guess I know what I'm watching soon.
>Don't forget the Eurus types! There's a reason they haven't shown up with any of the Azazel types.
Oh wow, you actually pionted something interesting out, the NUNs already has a fuckton of problems with the sphinx type I wonder how they will deal with the Eurus since even a single one of them can fight on even ground with a island Fafner thanks to their ability to perfectly copy any weapons used on them
Including the super nuke
They need all the pilots they can get, I'd assume.
And Kenji seems more useful here than in a Fafner, even if he can still go out like the other 1st gens, he was never very eager to fight.
Because they need bodies more than they need the Siegfried System.
Ultimately it serves as an intelligence hub that lets CDC and the Pilots have better communication.
HaE showed they could function with just the upgraded Crossing.
Also because it's following the character arc that was original told to us all the way back in the data books of the first season. Where they talked about the future of Alvis as everyone grew older and how it was stated that Kenji would eventually become the person in charge of CDC.
That's why everyone is afraid Fumihiko is on a timer since with Mizoguchi off with the Exodus group, if Fumihiko dies it's the perfect set up for Kenji to be forced to take command like they want.
Since Kenji's character has pretty much become "that guy who doesn't look like much but in the end rises in the face of adversity"
Because fuck ; the only way the Kaburagi's are getting their L Plan 2.0 death wish is over Fumihiko's cold dead body and it'll be up to Kenji to slap some sense into them.
All the stuff Mjolnir gave'em apparently included how to reduce side effects on the body and mind, seeing how by the time of HaE they don't get red eyes when piloting and seem a lot less crazy overall.
Why would anyone post threads about music on the /m/echa board? Same reason. Going too fast, misreading things, or simply wrong tab-ing.
What is Yuriko right now anyway? Seems too cheery to be a pure Festum but still drops omnious comments like all the time. It's like she stopped right before entering the uncanny valley and it makes it somehow even weirder.
I don't think anyone knows, since nothing was explained. She's most likely a human-Festum hybrid whose mind is operating on a higher plane because of getter r-I mean, Festum shenanigans.
Seri already died.
And as we all know, death is the first requisite of immortality.
I agree. If she got more screentime, she'd quickly beat out Maya and Canon for the title of definitive best gril.
Yeah, Emery not noticing anything is part of what has me really curious about the whole thing.
It's honestly kind of exciting, as tragic as zombie Yumiko is. But we really have no idea what she might be or do or become, with how hush-hush it's been to this point I don't think it'll be as simple as just a Festum spy or anything.
I noticed the Srinagar Mir was kind of like a Monkey Paw thing for Miwa. She said she'd have more power if she were bigger, so it made her grow. She wanted her mom to come back so she made her a zombie/hybrid.
Or Yumiko is the Mir right now. Real Yumiko is dead and the Mir is just using her body and memories.
Sakura is my favourite Fafner character.
Unfortunately, she did take a most certain death flag at first part's end :(
