Don't you get it? Lala is literally the proto-Benijiro/Tsumugi who is part-gauna. The only reason she's not completely crazy is because the life support suit keeps the gauna cells from replicating.

It's definitely not Brutalism, which isn't supposed to be ugly concrete buildings but most of the students of Brutalism only care about the concrete and are pretty bad architects overall.

Nihei's stuff has counterparts in cyberpunk, steampunk, and some real world inspirations like the Kowloon Walled City. I tend to call the style Urban Sprawl, but I don't think there's a true name for it, unless there's something on TVTropes.

Evil_kitten

@King_Martha
Really? Because I can!

The sheer number of these fat yellow-gray boxes that dot the landscape of this city is just disgusting to think about, especially when you consider how incredibly inefficient they are at cooling and lighting. This is a tropical city, where breezes blow almost every day and the sun shines down 90% of the year, but some dumb socialists think that a building that needs to be hermetically sealed in order to be livable or workable are great ideas, especially given how their strong geometric forms sit on the landscape like shits on a plate, defying the natural greenery of the plants and the brilliant blues of the sky and sea with their sickly gray exteriors.

Saged and spoilered for unnecessary, offtopic rage.

Well I guess Tanikaze is officially dead inside, two people he loved and that died on his watch, I wonder just how broken he will be when he gets out of the cockpit or when he sees whats left of Sidonia.

I honestly thought Killy saw Cibo as a friend since they were together for a long time and Sanakan was willing to die to get the embryo in safe hands, hell that was the whole point of that dream place she talked with what I think were some human minds, I don't understand what you're trying to say, there was no romantic love or anything between any of them and Killy is show to have emotions like when he went on a rampage in the organ harvesting station and when he started protecting some Silicon life after his mission was over

Whats so mysterious about it? Its the best weapon the safeguard can produce, only in low quantitys though most likely because of some limited resource bullshit, and killy was equipped with it.
Makes sense to me and doesnt reuired any more in depth information. Unless you want to know how it works of course, but at that point the answer is just: Its a manga:

She's been away half dead for months. Even as a Tsumugifag it's hard to feel down after all those flags, then that very long agony of hers and the manga being utterly boring for a year at least. It's more like a "Tsumugi is dead, still nothing to see".

TreeEater

@StrangeWizard
it truly is.
Because it was to be a commercial succes, which it is? He had more folks riding him about how it needed to be it needed broad spectrum waifus, more moe.
and the story telling and pacing is all over the place seeing how for the first 80% of the story everyone lives in fear of the shadows cast by one Mass union ship and the attacks and interactions of the Gauna are still quite vague seeing how this manga takes elements from Stanilaw Lem's Solaris. but then it get the que to turn shit up and half a dozen grasshoper M.U.S. just pop into excistence, the invisible boat mobile commitie gets introduced and killed off and dozens of other shit just gets dropped like suddenly some folks made a robo waifu and it is the only robot in the entire ship but noone cares so they dump it at the MC.

and one thing that really grinds my gears is that everyone and their immortal grandmother is wearing TOHA Heavy hoodies, gloves, phone cases and maxipads, we get it you created a fake company and now you sell stamped shit online stop forcing it in there it wasn't even the biggest company in the ship or in any of his stories.

But they can reproducem the weapon Sanakan uses is a watered down version of the one Killy has, there is also the graviton sword that P-Cell and that woman in Noise used, the only thing that the GBE has of different is the pwoer and given the mission he had to undertake it was probably just a overcharged version of the normal ones and the original humans who created Killy probably hid the schematics for his weapon so the Safeguard did just field a bunch of ultra kill bots and fuck Killy over

But other than the fact that it's possible, there's nothing connecting these places other than self-referencing in how things are named and as fiction within the different settings. So it doesn't really matter even if it is true.

Final victory like this just feels too cheap and clean (with on main character death). Why didn't we get some time for mugi to really learn of her origins and feelings that bled through from hoshijiro.

In the end I think the series just stumbled and never recovered at the mid point, it stopped being the scary anyone can die against monsters to a mecha battle harem with organic tech. Pacing went bonkers and so much shit that could be explored is being dropped just to have a final enemy that get lazored without much exploration.

Yes she rebuilt them after the ochai shitstorm 100 years prior, but some of her methods were even called out by the populace and it's hand waved. So she'll either land them on this planet and step down quitely, run off with the few other immortals (bear and nagate) or get lynched.

I at least don't think the shit in this solar system even needed to take place, she was so fucking gun ho about killing the hive that they started to fuck around with dangerous tech they had abandoned.

Her leadership did manage to make most of them survive, but the fact she even took this on instead of fleeing is questionable. I'm not sure the dissent is as high as I think it was because we only got the token protesters and doomsayers every now and then.

It may have been rushed, but consider how well-produced this chapter was in order to accommodate the rush. Nihei could have done this chapter many, many ways worse. I actually thought the chapter was going to convince me that Nihei had lost his touch, but it really did the opposite.
@AwesomeTucker
Do you have any idea where that could be sourced, or if the source was reliable? Was it posted on heeen's forum or something? I'm a super-obsessive Blame! fan, and I've never heard that.

Crackpot theory time.
Ochiai is actually the good guy. Captain Kobayashi is evil.
Ochiai found a way to coexist/communicate with the Gauna but the Captain wants to exterminate them.
Proceeds to frame Ochiai and brings Sidonia to the brink of extinction to attain power.
Continues to pursue war against Gauna leading to the current conflicts with Gauna.
Ochiai seeks the destruction of Sidonia for revenge against the Captain.

Re-read his post. He's talking about the current Sidonia chapters which have very minimalistic line work and shading. This picture I'm posting from the newest chapter is better than many of the other pages in recent chapters, but is still massively lower in quality than Blame! or Abara.
Nihei has made repeated specific mention of the fact that he is not particularly good at use of Photoshop or other digital art formats FUCK THE CAGE IM STILL RAGING, yet continues to use it for material like this. I just don't understand why.
@RumChicken
Ochiai is a third party. He doesn't want to side with the Gauna or the (current evolution of the) humans. He was just mad that Kobayashi fucked him over, and sought personal revenge against her/Sidonia. Relatively similar in concept to Gin from Bleach, if you're familiar.

He went out of his way to protect and save her numerous times and vice versa, and that's just from what we've seen. Who knows how many times they stuck their necks out for eachother in the hundreds of years they spent together that we didn't see. If he was truly as robotic and emotionless as you think he is he wouldn't have gone through such trouble trying to keep her alive.
@lostmypassword
the notion of two people having the slightest bit of affection for eachother after working closely together for centuries is really damn stupid
I think you might actually be autistic. I'm not saying they were head over heels in love no matter how much I wish they were but the notion that Killy didn't even see her as a friend after all that time is more absurd than anything else.

At what moment? when he met her? and what was because she was a scientist and she could help him in his mission. Killy needed Cibo for his success in his quest, not because he had feelings for her.

@PackManBrainlure
No, when she dies at the end. The overwritten memory girl is an amalgamation of personalities, including Cibo and Sanakan. That's why she looks like a mix of them, and is wearing the pack to represent the other previous personalities underneath.

Booteefool

@cum2soon
The last girl was Mori, she was one of the few (if not the only one) personalities contained in the package (the other personalities were "sleeping") and she was unrelated to the other girls. Cibo and Sanakan died in the final battle, and their personalities were not saved.

His intention was good at first, then his personal goal plus a case with Kobayashi just overrode it.

He was right that Sidonians had to evolve that led to photosynthesizing in later generations. He is just too extreme for his case.

His motivations are nowhere near as black and white as you portray them. He went out of his way to help out numerous people completely unrelated to his mission and even went completely berserk after finding out he'd inadvertently assisted in the organ harvest of the pale men, one of which he personally rescued. If you really think the only reason he saved Cibo's life so many times is because he felt she was a useful tool in completing his quest then you haven't been paying much attention at all.

I told you guys it was gonna happen, Yuhata's "I've not been rejected yet" line to Izana was her being cryptic about it.

"I've not been rejected (by you) yet".

If you consider them rivals who are both after Nagate, it makes no sense for Yuhata to confess her intentions so directly.

I'm not gonna go in-depth with this discussion again, but there's still two more or less accurate reproductions of her (assuming that both survived the collision with the LMUS). As a transhumanist that's good enough for me.

@iluvmen
They liked each other. What more is needed? Also, she saved him twice and she pretty much represented the series' transhumanist ideas, I'd say. She definitely wasn't irrelevant.

The Gravitational Beam Emiter is something that the rampant growth of the megastructure produced. Which the governing agency harnessed and used to reintroduce for their agents and then thousands of years later, the corrupted safeguard had them.

That said, Killy's GBE is unique. It's stated in BLAME! and So on... that Killy found that weapon during his travels, and makes it a habit to retrieve it. It's a weapon he did not have at the start of his journey, nor was it given to him by the governing agency.

It's for all intents and purposes, a lost technology, within the myriad of lost technologies that populate the megastructure.

Suzumega is both a prototype and spiritual successor to Sidonia. Nihei used many of the ideas in that story to craft out Sidonia, but you can probably assume that since the Gauna exist everywhere in the universe in abundance, being that Nihei-verse is arguably similar to the lovecraft mythos in terms of it's aliens, Suzumega takes place thousands of years after Sidonia in some capacity.
