Jesus Christ how horrifying.
nearly shat my self at that part
What's the answer to Katze's riddle?
It's "a person of power or supreme authority" isn't it? Is that too obvious?
I'd say Katze loves slaughter or something like that.
What's everyone's favorite thing that goes in easy, but is difficult to get out?
Hint: The answer to the riddle is definitely my favorite thing. But that Gel-Gel guy likes it twenty thousand times more than me.
I'd guess idiocy or listlessness - "becoming an ape" - someone who follows blindly/is easy to manipulate/will become one
track 18 is too good
Gatchaman S2 in a nutshell
Yeah, kind of like how S1 was all about Katze. It's almost like he's the main antagonist this season or something
There was much less emphesis on Katze compared to what Gelsadra has had in S2.
I just want more Hajime. Also less of that fat cunt presenter.
Gatchaman S2 in a nutshell
Where's Ken The Eagle?
Chaos? Easy to cause, a lot harder to solve.
Katze loves to cause it but Gelsadra likes pacifying it even more.
user requested a stitch of this in the last thread. I tried.
The most important takeaway from this episode is that these two have been bathing together.
Yeah, which is normal in Japan in case this is your first anime
I can't believe half-dressed, mind-broken Ruirui is canon. This show really knows his fanbase.
Before Katze said it was his favorite thing It thought the answer would be "an idea". There is an Authority comic about the very same thing.
That milk is too delicous.
Hajime the best.
Out hugging the hug monster
I'm betting its "Getting their own way".
Katze loves seeding chaos, but I don't think gel can even comprehend a world he doesn't view as together or perfect for long.
In public baths, sure, but if we're talking about private residences, it's generally only between very close family members, which is my point.
Someone ought to add some cum, I mean, colgate to his face.
Food? People love to eat, but if you eat to much and are lazy it becomes hard to get rid of the fat. And it fits with the Kuu's name and Gel becoming fat by absorbing too much.
Also food is some metaphor for anything else, like thoughts. It's easy to implant a thought into someone, but it's very difficult to get it out (for example the idea of being united and that everyone who disagrees should get eaten by these thoughts). I'm not very good at stuff like this.
Look at how big those things' fingers are. My god. Finger suckling, honest Ruirui is so cute.
Something like apathy?
I bet it would be really comfy to be with a kuu-chan.
rui a slut
this is getting really good, super threatening in a really odd way
why would either of them want people to have a will of their own?
katze's goes from planet to planet in order to fuck with people and destroy them
gel wants everyone's mind to be "united" which is the exact opposite
Do you think this is the very same one that eats Alan later? Christ, this is creepy.
Here you go.
That one was following Joe though, Alan just had the bad luck of being right behind him
I still think it's ideas.
Ideas lead to conflict.
Gelsadra likes them way more considering how many of them he's eaten.
katze loves to give his version of free will and gel loves it to have for himself. it's the apple and the snake motif, once eve and adam took upon themselves the knowledge she was cast out of the "garden". The only way back in is to become like an animal and not think for yourself or wish to become more as is the drive of sentience.
Free will is impossible to give back once owned. It's easy to take just as eve did. Katze loves to encourage people to live in chaos doing what they will at all times, not what society wills. Katze tears down the borders of society. and then the planets die because they cant function without order. Gel orders everything and the planet cant function without chaos.
Those green tongues
Katze said in the episode that they are just as shitty as him as him on the inside. What else could be inside them? They look pretty hollow.
I am in shock that Alan. I mean I was expecting this to be a feel good anime. But now all I feel kind of dead inside. Dead inside just like Joe.
Man I could not even write the word "died"
That's a really good interpretation, actually.
Only concern: how would we justify the relevance of the "everyone's favorite thing" part of the riddle? The implication here would probably be that people *don't* like other ideas, since they're growing more complicit.
I really hope it's like MESS and they're just sort of..inside. Alan a best.
They appear to be nice monsters but they are evil.
No way he is dead. Isn't this exactly how the MESS used to operate?
Nah. They are like the Borg...or The Thing. And some of Zerg and Tyranids.
Everyone loves their own ideas.
Will Messy-chan ever be relevant anymore?
exactly how the MESS used to operate
MESS didn't display any hostility or interest with the humans. Things only got swallowed because they were in the way of the MESS without the MESS even realizing it.
Mess seems more efficient at absorbing things, so they could be used to clean up the kuus.
That part just doesn't sit with me well. Sure, everyone loves their own ideas, but we're not seeing people acting on their own beliefs. The whole theme this season is the total opposite.
No one wants to have their own ideas. They just want to Gel to handle everything.
Nah Alan is probably being kept alive and mindraped over and over until he likes it.
We both may be right. Maybe this individual knew from the kuu-sama mental network that Joe was close friends with Alan and following Joe would lead it to its prey.
He's kept in there with all the other expelled negative emotions.
This is just like the tang at the end of eva.
Can't wait for him to be vomited out covered in goo, doing the gel sign, and with a braindead smile on his face.
Negative feelings, maybe? The Kuu-sama eat the people with apparently negative thought-bubbles, after all, so they must find them tasty on some level. Also, Gel only ever takes in the bubbles of non-red individuals, those must be the ones he "eats". He begins to puke when he takes in a spiked purple bubble, aka the maximum suffering bubble, so maybe it was just too rich for him.
This is some creepy conformist shit. Still pretty predictable though. I would have been surprised if someone didn't get eaten by the end of the episode.
For someone who has never watched any of the Gatchaman series, where should I start, and is it worth it?
So will we ever see some science ninja action?
and all those who live on the earth will worship the beast
The riddle (Katze's) doesn't involve the Kuu-sama.
Also negative feelings are neither people's nor Gel's favourite things. There's also the point that part of the riddle is that they should be really hard to take out. That hasn't been the case.
I like that answer but I really don't think negative feelings are everyone's favorite thing
Crowds and Insight are worth it. 1970s Gatcha was a show about a team of heroes traveling the world and battling an evil organization that was trying to plunder Earth's resources, and it was good for what it was. It also got pretty dark at times.
I think the Kuu-sama are the negative emotions that get pushed out of people when Gel sends them back.
Sounds like it could be laziness then
Come on look at the facts. There's a huge snake and the apple motif here! Katze is the snake in the garden, regarded as evil, tempting the people with the forbidden fruit.
So I can just watch crowds, then insight and be good to go without missing out on important story elements or anything?
Holy fuck guys. I've been married to my Waifu since 2006 and Hajime-tan's outfits are making me have sinful thoughts! Just look at her! Twintails and that long skirt. Complete opposite of the previous scene which she looked so cute.
Negative feelings toward others, I mean. They're easy to adopt and easy to "take in" from others, but difficult to get out in the sense of speaking about them out loud. They also make you feel better about yourself, so everyone loves them. The negative feelings and negative people being eaten means everyone becomes one, which is what Gel wants.
Yes. That's how it goes with Tatsunoko reboots
Yeah, they're totally unrelated to the 1970s original.
Not that user, but yes. Also be sure to watch Embrace (the full epilogue to the first series, should be included if you download the BDs) and Insight's episode 0.
And he is inside of Eve no less always taunting her no less
Thanks, time to get started!
The only thing Katze is doing to tempt people right now is enabling closeups of Hajime's Hajimes.
Wasn't Katze's riddle in s1 also about that thing that everybody loves? I'm sure not everybody loves other people's disgraces.
That's an interesting one. It's easy to end up with negative thoughts/feelings about other people, but hard to let go of them?
Last season Katze said that people loved other people's suffering. So it could fit with the way he thinks.
I think they're supposed to represent the common thoughts of the people(like a hivemind) that has it's own body. It's why they couldn't answer any of Hajime's questions but knew the names of all the Gatchaman and Rui. I wonder if their behavior is dependent on whatever the mood of the public is currently.
The one asking the riddle is Katze though, so the solution is likely to be twisted
Everyone loves other people's misfortunes wasn't it? And it's true isn't it? No one likes hearing someone go on about how something good happened to them. They call them braggarts or some such. Hell, people try to compete for who had the shittiest day.
Well that was more about what Katze thought everyone loved, which was "the suffering of others" since he was projecting his own love of it onto everyone else.
this is what im saying. Gel is anti matter, he's the lack of anything, he's the opposite of life. He doesn't grow and change, he just consumes everything and makes copies of only himself, he's the stagnation and entropy of sentience itself. @Flameblow
kuu are us, they know everything about us because they are everyones thoughts, they dont have thoughts of their own they can only repeat what everyone else thinks they aren't someone else, they're only one.
all the people with red speech bubbles literally become one by fusing together into a giant composite human mech
will transform (Gel el presidente)
and with him will come gentle beasts
their names are many
but they are beasts none the less so dont relax
They are a hivemind, that aggressively seek to remove those that doubt them.
More like apeboy gets released by gatchamans, slaps rui around like the little slut he is, and they begin a radical campaign to reintroduce free will back to the people.
Boo-boo eeeeeeeeen, wrong
The answer is a P U S S Y, what else you shit~?
You can get inside and stay inside for upwards of minutes depending on the wind www. It's even easier if some else has already been there you know!
But getting out of one takes about nine months, drugs and a c-section~
Easy to get in, but what a pain to get out of wwwwww
Motherfucker. I read that in his voice.
I think the transformation was Gel getting fat.
Gel and Tsubasa are the Angel guarding the Garden of Eden "Paradise" where no individuality is allowed. Gel is the body of the Angel while Tsubasa like her hair and name implies is the one giving him wings. Her hair is literally white and feathered looking and her name means wings. Is not a hard connection to make
I think it happened well before that, it went from him being a willful participant that came to try and redeem earth by bringing peace, to taking over and controlling them.
Gel doesn't know anything about the kuus, but kaetz does, and he knows a lot about gel as he stated he ran away from him scared.
Is not a hard connection to make
But how does all that play into Hindu mythology? Checkmate atheists
is gel the only one of his race or all gels the same? maybe this one was a child gel?
no, gel just transformed in the eyes of the gatchaman
opposite of Hajime's smile
Good question, I am pretty sure k.b ran away because he could no longer influence people once a gel was on the planet. They would aggressively remove those that k.b would attempt to manipulate to then spread suffering onto others. Without anyone to influence, k.b was alone and therefor powerless.
Is that guy still working on that?
Kuu is air but also it's to eat. I knew shit was sour once they named them that.
Considering he is new to everything on Earth he is like a child there right now, but technically speaking I don't think he is a actual child by his race's standard
Which is why I assume he takes on his child humanoid form every time he arrives on a new planet, Katze wasn't wary of him until he turned into his adult form
Why isn't Millio dead yet?
This lore is so deep I want to stick my dick in it.
i think it was the shift from passive to aggressive
Reminder that kuu-sama retain the accents of the people they pop out of. We heard Kyushu, Kyoto and standard dialects spoken.
apparently it also means "to make light of" which they clearly do when people try to have a serious conversation. They want to end peoples ability to think for themselves, as free thinking is "suffering" to a certain degree as when humans think they attempt to rationalize and give cause to certain things which creates suffering.
How would a race of gels function?
Simultaneous Ge lu lu lu!
No thought bubbles appear
Considering he got fat as fuck, his race probably split fast and spread everywhere so they don't starve.
Mfw Milio get's eaten on live television.
That's a alien not your little brother
katze loves the suffering of other because it's the source of growth and chaotic elements, that why hajime said that when people clash it's beautiful, it's life itself
exactly, the gels are one being like rei, just a clone forever, and are a solitary race that just goes from planet to planet assimilating it. Nobody gets reports from the planets because they're not thinking anymore to report anything. it's a silent death. I mean they dont stop living literally but they might as well have. it's a complete stoppage of everything.
I can't believe we now know what Rui's fucked out face looks like.
Also, I hope Joe runs to Rui to ask him to give out the CROWDS again so that everyone can protect themselves and finds this instead.
Literally what Sheeky Forums wanted the the moment the duality between Hajime's peace signs and the gel sign became apparent.
So since we're pretty much writing this shit at this point, how's it going to end? I would like to submit the idea that Rui shoves Gel into his boobs and becomes a busty futa. All in favor?
Those fucking things. It's like they are laughing. I hope Joe goes nuclear bomb on them. Fuck them.
But girls bathing together is common. And, is more like Utsusu would not care about taking a bath with Hajime.
Her race allegedly doesn't wear clothing so I don't she thinks anything of it, especially with Japan's naked skinshipping culture.
Woah She has enormous jugs. It fit her.
Now that rui has been absorbed, does that mean they can use her bird?
It's honestly a weird trait of humans, that when humans clash we get stronger, especially the weak one which loses the clash. I wouldn't say its life itself, i'd definitely agree that its something which sets humans apart.
Animals live their life fighting conflict, but its very rare for an animal to be given everything it needs to live a good safe life and for it to create suffering for itself like a human can. Sharks commit seppuku even in giant tanks, but that might have something to do with the stress in their environment.
Oh shit I found something in revelations in the bible. This is fucking it.
One ban wasn't enough? Fuck off already.
THAT WOULD BE DELICIOUS.
More Joe suffering.
Well he wanted Rui to be safe and stop doing and thinking dangerous things. He got his wish. Was it worth it?
rui undressed in girls panties with hand bra from kuus?
So will Sadra give birth, or what?
What am I listening to?
He's not absorbed, he's brainwashed.
That's why "Nothing bad happened."
Why does X have to suffer this season too?
Her flustered voice is delicious though.
her husbando just got gangraped by walking frenchflag beasts.
Next episode that thing will just spit him out and he'll be happy
The cliffhanger at the end of the next episode will be Kuu-sama killing a baby
Episode after that? lol baby is alright tho
I want to see the fucking corruption already. There's so much teasing and foreshadow toward some kind of chaos that even the main cast are expecting something terrible.
It's already here.
No, it's obvious that Tsubasa will shove Gel in her ass. It will be easy to get in, but hard to get out. Rui must stay flat.
I actually said "What the fuck" when this happened. Their cheerful reaction immediately afterwards didn't help, either.
How is it they managed to be even more creepy than S1 Katze?
In revelations it goes on about two beasts who come from the sea and land. . The sea dragon is great and red. It was given a mouth to spout proclamations and blasphemies upon the people.
"Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke with the mouth of a dragon"
With the beast out of the sea, we come to that one who, regardless of his claims as the white horse rider or peace maker, comes as a great source of darkness into the world. He comes not to save the world, but to damn the world.
The white horse rider who conquers by peace tactics, power politics, and by his charismatic personality and persuasive language.
Why is Jou so protective of Rui?
Rui's face when Jou walks in
Rui's already the first victim of corruption
Because Katze was at least likable.
This is so fucking disturbing. The other ones didn't get this expression.
Why is Jou so protective of Rui?
Do you have to ask?
What is wrong with her?
Why is Jou so protective of Rui?
Didn't you see this scene? Look how close they are hanging out in his apartment.
One of those things will eat Yurujii and Tsubasa will snap.
She doesn't understand difficult things.
Because Rui got completely brainwashed and canonically mindbroken.
I know, and I had that scene in mind when asking, but why?
I think the prime minister also got inside Jou's room. Maybe Joe doesn't mind letting people into his room
Katze knew that what he was doing was wrong, he just didn't care. Gel and the Kuus think they're doing the right thing despite being several times worse than Katze
You know how everyone thought Hajime was retarded back in season 1?
Well Tsubasa actually is.
Different Katze voice tone
Why was it different? Just to let Hajime know she was right?
This song shouldn't exist.
It would have been better if Rui had been wearing a dishevelled wig and a torn nightgown.
The first half of Mr. Balloon on the OST
Holy fuck this is all about Kuu-sama and their creepy bullshit isn't it?
These tits, hot damn.
The new soundtrack is great, but Unbeatable Network is still the overall best track of the show.
Do we know Alan's surname? Is he an expat? Hafu?
I still think that's M27.
Joe's husbando was eaten while his waifu was gangraped and mindbroken by Kuuddles
Being Joe is suffering.
So why didn't the Gatcha people (except Rui) get infected by Kuu's hugs? I thought Sugane and Utsutsu were struck but several scenes later they were fine.
Was it because the suit? Or because they're just not that easy to brainwash like Alan?
Pretty sure it was the suit. Also Utsutsu is an alien so she's probably immune.
But Utsutsu is human.
they were smart enough to be scared and uneasy about it
inviting broken sluts over
oh how the mighty has fallen
How is Rui even a slut? There is like next to no sexuality in this show.
I thought density like this only existed in harems.
These are fucking awesome.
I have no imagination
Also I hate fun
Stop making memes
Just is. He routinely gives up all his values, gets his techno girlfriend cucked, gets facefucked by goodlooking men, and even now completed accepting something that went entirely against his whole persona because it was comfy and would hold him
rui is a turboslut.
They were wearing a suit, you'll note Hajime is avoiding being touched when she's not wearing it.
Probably crowds would protect people, but since they brainwashed Rui, the only way to get it to protect others would be talking to Rizumin.
I'm so fucking creeped out by this shit jesus christ.
Muh melanin rich friend
Rustic Days is also top tier.
no bully pls
He routinely gives up all his values
gets facefucked by goodlooking men
You got me there. I guess he's a slut when you put it that way.
and even now completed accepting something that went entirely against his whole persona because it was comfy and would hold him
Does being brainwashed count as being a slut?
Doujins don't count.
I wish they did though
Same, the way everything started out so sane but got more and more bizarre as order was supposedly being implemented is creepy in it's own way.
I think it's opinions but that's sort of shaky to me.
Like Katze would like them because he can use them to cause trouble, and Gelsadra uses them to do his thing. Granted Gel doesn't like individual opinions, but he seems to enjoy popular ones.
He deserves it for enabling this crap in the first place
brainwash is pretty synonymous with mind broken.
Sweet Summer Samba
I've been waiting for this since epi 1
Putting Sweet Summer Samba and Tutu next to each-other in my Gatcha playlist
popular opinions are the groupthink that gel likes, but notice even with polls in the 70-80s range hes still wistful that not everyone is united.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I helped Gel-chan win the election for Prime Minister of Japan, and I've been involved in numerous smarphone votes, and I have over 3,000,000 confirmed Galax friends. I am trained in VAPE warfare and I’m the former top newbie in the entire G-team. You are nothing to me but just another holier-than-thou elitist. I don't really understand difficult stuff, but the world is a lot more peaceful now than it was with CROWDS, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying complicated and sad things to me over the Internet? Think again, friend. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of Kuu-samas across Japan and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the hug, downer. The hug that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your anxiety. You’re fucking unified, kid. Kuu-sama can be anywhere, anytime, and they can befriend you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with their bare hands. Not only are they instinctively trained in understanding you in every way, but they have access to the entire collective knowledge of the Japanese public and they will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable sadness right off your face, you little loner. If only you could have known what fluffy comfort your little “smart” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have spoken sooner. You couldn’t, you didn’t, but now everything's going to be okay, you sad little person. Kuu-sama will wrap its arms all over you and we'll become one. You’re fucking unified, kiddo.
This line sums up Gelsadra perfectly.
This was a nice shot.
this is how i do
See you next week. Bye-bye.
Why is Katze so perfect?
Also, what does Hajime mean by this? Earlier she was saying Tsubasa wasn't a Gatchaman yet, and now she's saying Tsubasa is much more of a Gatchaman than she herself is. Is she being sarcastic, or putting herself down somehow?
and they can befriend you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with their bare hands.
Was this supposed to be symbolic?
Like he just doesn't care about the jellybeans anymore?
I like the kind of duality Hajime has in season 1 and 2. In Season 1, the lesson learned was to not make enemies until you knew them. And in Season 2, the lesson is not to make friends for the same reason.
Reminds me of how Katze as Rui abandoned the jelly beans too. X's PTSD is probably being triggered.
I have no idea either. Maybe she's talking about how Tsubasa's heart is in the right place? I don't think it would be too surprising if she was putting herself down after how isolated she has been this season though.
Well, before she came along the gatchaman seemed a lot more straightforward about things, as evidenced by how they handled MESS.
Hajime was a challenge to the tradition of being a gatchaman because she taught things through, and then acted based on those judgements. I mean, compare her to Sugane, who attacked the mess because he was told to, if I recall.
It makes it look like Rui was taken by force or there was a struggle that took place.
Am I the only one who keeps reading it as:
"You know, I lost my virginity"
she sees tsubasa's potential. Tsubasa has deluded herself right now but hajime knows she's a good girl.
I want to believe that because Rui's beliefs were a huge portion of season 1 and a good chunk of season 2. It's kinda sad to seem him sprawled out there on Kuus, but X didn't seem alarmed until she noticed Rui being unusual.
If there was a fight I think she would've noticed and responded appropriately.
I thought that too but it doesn't seem like her to be sarcastic like that.
Tsubasa is straightforward and hotblooded, and Hajime seems to think that's how a hero and a Gatchaman should be. In contrast, she probably sees herself as too calculating to fit that image. I think that's what she meant in this episode.
In the previous episode, when she told Tsubasa that she wasn't a Gatchaman yet, I think she meant that Tsubasa was letting herself be influenced by the mood around her, and that's why she could transform. In order to become a true Gatchaman, she has to be herself.
Rui-Rui is done with jelly beans and only wants other people to play with her bean.
X could've responded but it's not like she could've actually done anything to save Rui.
Also I don't know what you're talking about, but seeing Rui mindbroken was hot. Can never go wrong with Rui abuse
Katze beating the shit out of Tsubasa when?
Holy shit, I can't wait for track 17. I love everything about Insight.
opposite of Hajime's smile
there was a struggle that took place.
Yeah, a snuggle struggle.
I mean that's sort of the thing. Tsubasa would work pretty well as a power ranger or a standard hero because she does whats she's knows to be right and she sticks to it.
How many people have, now, attempted to shake her beliefs? A good number of her comrades have, as well as her own grandpa, but the girl keeps chugging along and keeps sticking to what she thinks is right.
The issues with this is that this is the wrong universe for such attributes, and that she is fucking stupid.
Katze is the best
It's kind of vague but the best way to put it would be feelings. It's easy for experiences to make you feel in such and such ways but in today's society it's difficult to communicate information like this for various reasons. It's also easier to listen than it is to speak. Katze likes to stir shit up and observe the effects that emerge, which often provide some sort of insight on how people are. Gel instead sucks it straight out of people and becomes directly aware of their feelings.
Tsubasa would work pretty well as a power ranger
So basically what Hajime is saying is that 'sentai are childish and ignorant, and that's what you are.'
I want a textless webm of Berg prancing around.
I don't think that's it at all.
I finally realized the reason short-hair Katze looks weird is that he has no eyebrows.
But that's the theme of the show. Doesn't it fall on the wisest character to, at some point, state it outright?
Hajime believes the Gatchaman exist to take an active part in helping people. She had the same mindset in season 1 when she revealed herself when everyone else wanted to stay secret.
Tsubasa has been actively trying to help people, so her mindset is that of a Gatchaman. Her methods be fucking up and she may be incapable of any sort of self-reflection but her mindset is that of a Gatchaman in Hajime's eyes.
These last couple of episodes have a very good job of featuring Hajime's amazing boobs.
I realised this episode that I'd been wrong all this time. The best girl isn't Rui. It's X.
The issue is she's a bit like the values those classic heroes encompassed taken to their logical extremes. She works with her sentiments instead of fucking working out what to do in her head and then she doesn't take no for an answer.
Come to think of it, I don't know if any of you guys have read Discworld but this show reminds me of it in that from the books I've read they emphasize thinking for yourself rather than just doing things straight.
in exchange for my life...
Okay, who's going to die? The only one who had an applicable song whose title was in first person from S1 was Hajime. So she dies, and then the Gatchas go to the fireworks festival and recall how her life was life a firework?
Also, Make My Day refers to Hajime only in the past tense.
Please don't die, Hajime. ;_;
Name one thing he did wrong
Steal two planes to try to kill the prime minister
He stupidly talked to and tried to persuade only Rui-rui, when he would have gotten along famously with Hajime and would have been able to actually get his concerns about CROWDS through to her instead of just talking past Rui. Hell, Joe even took his point of view and used his logic without ever having met him. He should have talked to multiple Gatchas while they were alone.
He seems to be enjoying Rizumin's stabbing.
She works with her sentiments
instead of fucking working out what to do in her head and then she doesn't take no for an answer
You know user, you can always just agree instead of restating my opinion. Let's become one!
Misanthropic manchild with an unwarranted superiority complex. By the time you're 21 you're supposed to grow out of that phase already.
You're pretty right on the money though it seems to obvious.
Not doing anything is very comfortable and is a vicious cycle to get out of. It's like being a NEET. Very easy to get into but hard as fuck to get a job and do something of yourself.
I wouldn't be surprised if literally everyone stops doing anything because it's too demanding.
Chanka-chanka was so season 1.
caught up on the tag this morning
it was mostly Hajime's Hajimes and Rui's Rui
Not enough Utsutsu's Utsutsus.
If he didn't want to prove that the Crowds were used too soon, none of this shit would have happened. Gel would have visited and left.
It's all this bastard's fault for wanting to prove a point and he fucked the world (essentially Japan) for it.
Chanka-Chanka Rui a best
Sign of the hermit
Flash sound in the moonlight
Blue poison from gene of Steel rust
Blood rain on Venus' Ring
Just as leaves
Howling in the moonlight
The witches cry (so) pale
The hermit Siegel
In Chaos Balance
In the tower of wax and ivy
And in Trȁnental
As she jumped, the cat red
Egyptians...believed the topaz was the stone of Ra, the Sun God, and would be a blessing for his protection and favor.
Siegel is a German surname. It can be traced to 12th century Bavaria and was used by people who made wax seals for or sealed official documents (a Siegelbeamter). Alternate spellings include Sigel, Sigl, Siegl, and others. "Siegel" is also the modern German word for seal. The surname may derive from Sigel, referring to Sól (Sun), the goddess of the sun in Germanic mythology.
Hajime hasn't really done much for the overall population as a Gatchaman. Tsubasa, although retarded, has tried her best to help people.
What do you think his reaction to Rui's mindbreak will be?
haha, I told you so
Katze's and Gel Sadra's favorite thing is having fun.
Pretty much, he and joe are more at fault than Tsubasa who is just a stupid country bumpkin enabled by those faggots.
It is symbolic. If you remember in S1, the jellybeans were supposed to be symbolic of Rui's fuel to change the world. In ep 1 of S2, he says 'it's time to start'' while eating jellybeans. Later on, when Berg takes over, he throws the jellybeans on the floor, symbolizing chaos of Rui's dream.
This time, however, the Jellybeans seem to have been forgotten on the floor. Rui's fuel and dream no longer matters. The number of Jellybeans is even reflective of how much will Rui has to fight back idleness. The bowl is almost completely empty, but just enough, probably, for Rui to snap out of it if the time comes.
this changed everything
Yeah Gerru-ru-ru sounds like puke noises
I don't fully blame Joe because he wanted immediate change and was reacting to stopping all possible casualties caused by the orange hair faggot.
It's still because of that faggot that Joe was forced to do something that went against his morals and he deeply regretted it after it went further to shit.
The orange hair faggot was just ''meh, big ape is here, ah well, whatever, I made my point, I'm out of this story, who cares'' so fuck him.
Eyebrows were so last century, you know what I mean?
I want Hajime to save the world so bad.
Damp hair Hajime is pure sex.
I was honestly disappointed that Hajime didn't transform naked.
I thought it was gay anal bum sex.... :<
Easy to get in but hard to get out.
She's pure sex with any hairstyle.
The orange hair faggot was just ''meh, big ape is here, ah well, whatever, I made my point, I'm out of this story, who cares'' so fuck him.
He's not out of the story, he's obviously going to use VAPE to help people now Rui's being mindfucked by the Kuus.
@Garbage Can Lid
Our posts emphasize different things though. It's a bit difficult for me to explain but I don't see her straightforwardness in an entirely negative light.
Back in episode 3 when she went to help Rui, she did it without thinking. She charged in, not even transformed, and went to help Rui after OD tried explaining things to her, and I think the drive for her to do this was based on the same stubbornness that is her problem.
I figure if she took the time to think things through Rui would be pretty dead by now since all the other heroes were busy at the time, and it's my understanding that episode was meant to show there's a side to bullheadedness that lets people cut the crap and get shit done.
It's entirely truthful to say she is childish and ignorant but because she didn't spend time mulling over ideologies and mind games she was able to move more quickly, in a situation where every second was valuable.
With a bit of tempering she's going to be a valuable member of the team, and I think nearly turning Japan into a giant circlejerk will put some sense into her.
I NEED PICTURES.
PICTURES OF HAJIME
Honestly though, those look comfy as fuck.
I think the answer to the riddle is society.
then again how many nonhomos are on the show
So Tsubasa is being brainwashed like Rui, right? There's really only so much simple human brain problems can be responsible for. And thinking an alien is your little brother is well beyond just an issue of "I'm dumb LOL".
I hope you know that simply isn't true
I want life sized plush of those motherfuckers so I can sleep on it too
Why is that one so big?
Do they just fucking change sizes?
He might not literally be a slut, but he sure likes to dress like one. Seriously, he's just asking for it sometimes.
rui is actually a shota
Considering that everyone is geting mindfucked into submission by ahegao monsters I guess the answer is dick. Remember: "through dick, unity" and those things also talk too much about "becoming one".
Well I don't agree with you
I hope Jou sets them on fire. I hope he cracks and goes full enma ai and sets everyone's favorite teddy bears on fires.
He is still taller than all the girls in the show, and hajime was about as tall as one of those
Maybe once they eat semen they grow larger.
Personally I'd like to see Hajime punt a couple while Rui or Sugane teleports them through the same section of air over and over again
You either agree with him or something bad will happen.
I want to sleep on it
Well, they're like pillows, right? The verb for "embracing" (think dakimakura) can be used as a euphemism for fucking.
Sounding pretty Sawano there.
Literal Hugbox, fuck. And Hajime is way too much of a saint for me, Tsubasa is much harder to deal with than Katze ever was.
As someone in the last thread said, Yuru-jii's gonna have to be eaten in front of Tsubasa before she realizes, right? Or she'll get a call from her parents that it happened, and they don't care at all which will freak Tsubasa out. One of the other interesting things was how Hajime said that Tsubasa is way more Gatchaman than she is. I hope she joins in on the eventual slaughter, since there's nothing Gel can do to stop Kuu-sama now.
Ra, the Sun God
And Hajime is way too much of a saint for me
Any lesser being would have punched Tsubasa in the cunt by now.
Bless Hajime for her love is all mighty. May we find rest in her heavenly bossom.
why is tsubasa the worst?
I can't believe Sugane didn't get drunk with the Kuusamas considering how much he's been drinking this season. I guess they are too creepy.
Dumb country bumpkin shonen hero mentality.
GOOD JOB JOE
IT WAS ME ALL ALONG
Hajime did save the world that one time.
Tsubasa got a meme alien elected as prime minister.
Clearly she'll be the Conceited Fool
and be the one to have her grandpa personally eaten by Kuusamas to become one.
Damn, she always had that nice rack?
I dropped it in like ep 2 of s1 because it failed to grasp my attention, but those tits are wonderful.
mfw RuiRui doujins of him getting rapped by Kuus
You allowed the rise of Kuu-samas to get rid of the less dangerous Crowds. You handed the country over the apes on a silver platter.
Joe has never been right.
Damn, she always had that nice rack?
No wonder the show went over you head if you have such a little attention span.
Tonari no To-toro To-tooro
Gel-Sadra no naka ni
mukashi kara sunderu.
She's always had them, yeah. They seem to have gotten bigger in S2, though. The notes for her character design basically say "they told me to make an average-looking girl, but I felt like her design was too boring, so I gave her big tits" (God bless Kinako).
To be honest I don't think he had any idea that the Kuus would exist. There was no way he could have seen it coming. He probably thought Gel and Tsubasa were going to remain stupid figureheads and that's it. The crowds are still dangerous but at least they are controlled by people and not by those monsters.
Hey now, he was right in his analysis of MESS' nature after Hajime befriended them.
The Crowds aren't dangerous with X being able to shut off users who abuse it to begin with.
They are idiots. It was inevitable that things would go to shit with them running the country. He was deluding himself to satisfy his own self righteous views.
putting an alien in power ever
No way would that ever sound like a good idea, especially when you don't know anything about said alien. It was a bad idea even before the Kuus showed up.
Joe deserves to suffer.
All that Katze mass had to go somewhere.
To be fair Paiman, JJ, and OD would do a better job at leading a country than Gel.
Of course I realize using Paiman as a an example of a better leader isn't saying much.
Well, we all know that's what it was, but I was trying not to spoil it for him if he decided to finish watching after all.
On the director's cut it said that crowds crime was rising and that was before before Vape, and it's probably what gave rise to Vape. I am not against Crowds but I think it should be at least regulated. Even Rui thinks is irresponsible to give Crowds to everyone and it is. Joe doesn't think humanity is evolved enough to the point where anyone should have access to crowds. But of course the Kuu is a lot worse.
The mindless apes would be too stupid to even know how to use Crowds.
This is gatchaman word. Aliens are not that unusual. OD, Paipai and Utsusu are aliens so it wouldn't really be that weird for Joe to think that Aliens are allright as long as they are "good"
And X can quickly deal with that before it gets out of hand. X is the one regulating and overseeing who has Crowds.
So there was a system in place to keep in under control.
Vape on the other hand was run by someone who wasn't Rui and had the same thoughts as Joe about them being too dangerous.
So they proceed to use Crowds to harm people to prove their point. It's like someone saying guns are bad by and then proceeding to use a gun to kill someone. The person is clearly the one to blame. Not the gun or Crowds.
I miss Rizumu. Gel and Tsubasa are terrible antagonists.
Rui wants to give crowds to everyone. Everyone is everyone. Even the people that want to use crowds for harm like the neo hundred. He went full retard. What? you are going to wait for someone to kill someone else and said "ok you don't get crowds no more". Like OD there needs to be some passing system.
But he didn't hand it out to everyone now did he? He's doing it one step at a time in his goal to update the world. Eventually they would be a part of everyday life like other potential lethal things like cigarettes, knives, and Tsubasa.
And X is such an advanced AI that they can handle it with ease.
He changed. He wants to give crowds to everyone because now he fully believes in humanity. Before he was much more careful.
And yet it wasn't his Crowds that caused the problem but Vape, ones that aren't even under his control to begin with.
Vape created a problem where there wasn't a problem to prove a strawman. But Rui didn't help at all by refusing any and all regulation, simply preferring to spout how he believed in people.
He did have X remove people with Crowds when they started conflict with Vape. So X still has the ability to remove them instantly.
So he can regulate them if he has to.
There was a problem. The director's cut clearly stated near the end that the crowds crime was on the rise near the end after Sugane hugged Hajime. I guess it was to create a sequel. Vape was probably formed by the people fed up with the security problems.
Honestly, I just think it could have been done better. The tyranny by majority theme has a lot of potential but the frustrating part is how stupid Tsubasa had to be to enable Gelsadra in the way they wanted. It's like the perfect storm of mistakes that allowed him to get into that position of power in the first place followed by Tsubasa doubling down on some really questionable shit.
And Insight pretty much suggests that doesn't happen in the end.
Or at least that the crime rate was actually Vape all along. Enforcing the Vape was the problem to begin with.
This song is fucking Pumpkin Hill levels of fantastic.
You can believe whatever you want. Realistically bad people would commit crimes regardless of the colors of their crowds.
Open up new Gatchaman OST
Can't stop replaying Da sprang die Katze rot!
Why is Katze and everything related to him so based?
I have that and gatcha rock on repeat, and occasionally make my day.
That's just how Katze rolls. He's the best since 1972.
Insight is so much better than S1
Combining the two best characters was the greatest idea anyone ever had. These two's interactions are the best, they're perfect.
Agreed. By the same token, however, it wouldn't be as great if everything from Season 1 hadn't already been established.
He opened it to everyone.
As soon as they do vandalism (and this is what this crowds crimes were before Vape), those accounts were cancelled. He opened it to everyone but one strike and they lose it.
Is Umeda going to save the day?
He has zero resistance to kuus since he isn't a grey
So the Kuu is a physical manifest of the Tyranny of the Majority?
physical manifest of gel. nigga wants everyone to become one so he hired some hitmen.
More or less.
He has zero resistance to kuus since he isn't a grey
Since when this means resistance to kuus? Hajime didn't let them touch her.
She broke that one she hugged it so hard though, and don't say blahblah the suits, because it affected Utsutsu through the suit.
Several people come in thinking their answer to the riddle is obvious
All of them disagree
Nigga for fuck's sake it's the suits.
When she was wearing a Gatcha Suit. When she's not, she's keeping the fuck away from them.
I'm thinking it's complacency or groupthink.
it didn't affect utsutsu she felt a bit weird, Hajime probably sensed it too that's why she's not coming near them.
what was bad about s1?
All of them disagree
WE NEED TO BECOME ONE
Not that user, but it was a relative comparison. S1 doesn't need to have been bad for S2 to be better than it. I'd say the worst thing about S1 was
that it ended.
Bringen Sie den Palm is so good.
The full version of the ED is a pretty good jam.
It really is. I listen to it a lot.
I wish we had seen Rui's bubble
His power is literally to whore out his power to others.
I miss it
friendship, connection with others
Katze's favorite thing.
Fuck, I didn't realize it before. Sheeky Forums, listen to me. The answer is
I'm pretty sure somewhere deep inside we all agree that its cock.
He will probably be asked to be the anti-authority CROWDS revolutionary he tried to be in S1
inb4 people who are pro-kuus/pro-gel don't see what's wrong with Kuus eating people because those were "dangerous individuals" that didn't want to become one anyways so they endangered world peace
Through dick, unity.
Yes, and that's probably what annoyed everyone involved. Vape wanted regulation from the getgo, Rui refused, shit gets fucked up.
That the directors cut wasn't the main cut shown from what I remember
While it sucks that Alan got ate, I'm glad Jou lost something close to him for being such a massive faggot this season
Didn't Vape want to take the CROWDS away from everyone? The problem is that both Rui and Rizumu are extremists in their own way, the solution is to find a middle ground.
So either he was drunk or he was trying to sleep with Alan. In the middle of a major crisis for which he is very much responsible. Sasuga Joe!
Likely both, knowing him.
He was one syllable away from saying "yaranaika."
Solidarity I'd say. Once you're in the crowd they won't let you out so easily.
Vape wanted regulation from the getgo
no, rizumin wanted no more crowds for nobody. like joe.
Remember when Joe wanted Rui to stop thinking and sit back to be protected?
I want him to discover him like this because it'll teach that colossal faggot a lesson.
It's the duty of a hero to help people in need!
NO IT'S TO INSPIRE THE PUBLIC YOU DOLT
I have an abdl fetish holy shit yes
Is it a joke? She saved earth and multiple planets by sealing Katze in her. She is both strong and smart.
Tsubasa is a legit retard.
Does anybody remember that twitter tag japanese artists were using to post GC fanart right after the episode had aired?
I want to see all the Rui mind breaking.
So this whole season about why fascism is bad and giving up free will for pleasure? I'm guessing the next episode will deal with attempted genocide towards the non reds. The yuu are representing a parental figure and running from the tough questions? IDK i feel like there is a ton of neat symbolism but its too late for me too articulate it correctly. Anyone got theories?
You can't please everybody?
Conflict is what makes people strong?
Individuality is just as important as a united group?
I don't know if this season knows what it is.
Tsubasa tells her Grandpa, a surviving WWII soldier, that he "doesn't know what it means to fight."
Holy shit I though Hajime was bad but this girl is 110% legit retard.
She's just naive and lacking any real world experience. Also takes too much initiative for her own good and skill level.
During commie era we had a saying around here: Eager idiot is worse than enemy of state. She's that eager idiot right now.
Fucking how? And why? She is the girl that saved the universe and has at the very least 200 IQ points. She has absolutely no flaws as a character, but in a good way, not in a mary sur way.
Jou-san is the stealth shit in the story. He enabled all this faggotry because Humanity can't handle the CROWDS. And it has come to the slippery sloped conclusion that Humanity can't handle things.
At the end of the day, this is still anime, so the answer to the riddle can't be a DEEP, complex and hard to explain concept.
It will be either chaos or schadenfreude - Katze loves to cause it, Gel eats it, people tend to indulge in it.
Before you say that schadenfreude is a complex concept, it was thrown around season 1 a lot. Everytime Katze was shown saying "YUMMY", it was a mostranslation of "meshiuma", which is the japanese word for schadenfreude
The answer to the riddle is doubt.
But does Gel love doubt 20000 times more than Katze?
tfw you realize it doesn't matter if Hajime saves the world because the reason it's all going to shit in the first place is because people can't be assed to take care of it themselves and just want someone else to solve all their problems
I don't think it's either of those.
Since when Hajime solved it she was looking at people who seems to dislike those not similar to them.
Also what does Hajime mean by @Poker_Star
It's not Gel-san because it's other people. Like Katze in s1 who kept saying that it was the fault of the human heart.
Another way to look at it is that humans, both socially and physiologically, are reactive in nature. We are not proactive. We wait until something happens in order to come up with something to counter it.
Think of the kuus as a cold. We don't have a natural immunity towards it. When people get infected it's because they are letting it happen when there is a proactive solution to avoiding the sickness. Rui wants to update the world to this proactive way of thinking, and we always see him as the voice of logic/reason. But gel/kuu prevent that from happening. All they are interested in is becoming one big pile of mush that can be easily shaped and molded into whatever it wants so that it can spread again to repeat the process.
Now I'm thinking that the answer to the riddle could be human nature.
The answer is consensus!
easy to get into
hard to get out?
Problem being Gel doesn't love trouble.
Worth considering, the language doesn't add up totally, though.
What about complacency?
He must like it when some people become complacent, like the Gatchas before Hajime was recruited. Gel surely likes it more.
She means that the Kuusamas aren't solely caused by Gel (it's not one name), but are instead the product of humans, hence why Gelsadra doesn't even know what the fuck they are, despite attempting to bring peace to numerous planets before Earth.
I think schadenfreude could still apply, since Katze said that the Kuusamas, a product of human nature, are even worse than him - rotten on the inside, secretly taking pleasure (eating up) in the misfortune of others.
if I keep posting this it'll become true
There's a difference between being competent and being a mary sue.
THE ANSWER TO THE RIDDLE IS LOVE!
I think the riddle could be other people's influence. The grey bubbles are an anomaly because they don't allow others to influence them.
- everyone's favorite thing
- easy to get in
- hard to get out
- the party only starts when you have it
- Katze's favorite thing
- Gelsadra loves it even more than Katze
the party only starts when you have it
Sugane confirmed for real S2 protagonist.
Yeah, I don't think this is something Hajime can fix on her own. Maybe she could sway Gel or something?
I don't think this is something Hajime can fix on her own
Of course not. With Katze's help on the other hand....
...and then the cat jumped red.
She's a retard.
I want to fuck a mindbroken Rui.
everyone's favorite thing
I don't think so, user.
Imagine how pliant he'd be.
I think maybe people are assuming that Katze is a fair riddler and not just fucking with people here. I mean, Katze has his own goals, and it could involve 'incite a battle between the G crew and Gel'.
The answer might not be that important.
How about attention?
The answer might not be that important.
Hajime wouldn't have given it much thought if that were the case, but instead, she chose to try finding the answer.
Katze might be a glorious asshole, but he's not a liar. His biggest trait is being awfully honest with people, shittalking them to oblivion.
Plus, he did say he ran away from Gelsadra, so maybe the one not being honest here is Gel, not Katze.
Attention is hard to get, easy to lose.
That's about to happen, isn't it? Tsubasa thinks Hajime has been influenced by Katze.
hey guise pls follow me on twitter
@Garbage Can Lid
take craigscreens seriously
I'd kill for a lifesized plush of those things.
Tsubasa isn't exactly the brightest pencil in the box, why are you listening to her?
Tsubasa did nothing wrong
Jesus christ how horrifying
The great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude
Just stumbled upon this quote by Ralph Wald Emerson. What do you think?
I really hope Katze comes back.
Because she is one half of tokyo's most influential couple? She is a retard, of course, but one word from her on the Millione show about how Hajime has been corrupted and public opinion will turn against the Gatchamen. Add to this the fact that the owner of Galax has just been mindraped into complacency.
Why is Hajime so much hotter this season
Is it because of the different clothes?
Remember the whole point behind his riddle in season 1 was that Hajime was keeping him talking to buy time, and that Hajime and Rui ultimately rejected his answer by unleashing the Crowds.
Katze isn't the sort of genie who is unable to lie. Nor can he really be expected to have an unbiased insight into the human character. Maybe Hajime is just trying to keep Katze talking so that he will leak info. Or maybe Tsubasa for once IS right, and Katze is manipulating Hajime.
Katze talking out of her boobs
jesus christ muh dick
Does hajime wear a bra?
This is it.
Seems to apply. Thinking for yourself vs. letting others do the thinking for you.
They don't make them in her size
Grorious Nihon probably has something like this whit connotation about lack of personal responsibility.
Did Picasso cover his art with wallpaper?
The short twintails plus long skirt combo this episode was pretty magical, yeah. Shame we didn't really get any nice close-ups of it.
Megatron would fare better than Gelsandra.
Prove me wrong.
@Garbage Can Lid
Now somebody will make a webm titled: You will be assimilated.
I really hope track 19 is going to be played when Katze is let free and helps the gatchas defeat the kuu menace. Also it is the best song in the track so I hope it is use soon.
Blue balls. Massive fucking blue balls at the end of each episode. Everyone basically had the ''okay, next episode is when shit REALLY gets real'' and it literally always ends on that feeling but doesn't fully deliver on it.
It's still great, in my eyes, but watching it every week was very goddamn hard.
RuiRui getting diddled by all those Kuus
Not even a genius cannot be mind broken and submitted to idleness.
Gel san- Hitler
Kuu sama- SS
People with red clouds-Germans
People with not red clouds-Jews
Those who will not become one with them will be put be Holocausted
"And now I'm going to make you even cuter, sempai!"
The way the speech bubbles are positioned make it seem as if Katze was talking to Sugane.
I think that doujin was done before the end of S1
The weird distorted sounds ruin it. It has such nice guitar riffs. What a shame.
I argued with someone a few weeks ago that it's actually Tsubasa that is Hitler.
She had a dream in life, making a big fireworks show, but got distracted because she wasn't good enough at it. And, because of that, she got into politics rather than pursuing her dream.
That's basically the same as Hitler who wanted to be an artist, wasn't fully good at it, went into politics and never honed his love for painting.
Kutani will never make a Hajime doujin.
At this point Tsubasa is Shit from Beyond the Outer Shit tier.
I'm curious to see what is her thought bubble. I don't think it's red.
All y'all taking a shit on Joe have never tried to give up smoking.
But giving up smoking is the easiest thing ever.
I've done it hundred times already.
Shut up Mark Twain.
Also, the original season finale was terrible. Thank god for the director's cut
I did quit smoking 10 years ago.
Joe a shit.
But you're not under constant stress with aliens trying to fuck up or just fuck anything and everything around.
True that. The director's cut was damn good though
Hajime talking to Berg about what it means to be a hero
she's talking to him in the light
he's in the shadows, invislbe, under a bridge (
Because he's a troll lololol)
she crosses the line of shadows to meet Berg
I absolutely love that bit.
It makes me laugh how gullible all these people are because they're nice within 5 minutes of meeting them.
Can we just get the Gatchaman fucking them up already.
Paipai is the most gullible.
But honestly, do you think that shit is fucked hard enough for OD to actually transform and wreck shit this time around?
The situation seems insanely more dire than in S1.
I would be cool with a guy who's always asking if I'm fine, is cool drinking buddy and is amazing for cuddling.
Come on Lelouch, don't tell me you wouldn't want a perfect cuddling buddly.
Well, he is a naive leader. That's never changed since S1.
You guys think something bad could happen to the people who are linked to the Kuu-samas if the Kuu-samas die?
This is heartbreaking and yet far too hot. It even looks like he lost his pants at some point.
They're just born out of the representation of your emotions, not your actual emotions.
The problem, however, is that these fuckers keeping hanging around humans, so you can't just destroy masses of them in one shot like the Gatchaman did with the Crowds in S1.
How do you make humans not hang around the Kuu?
It would be hilariously awesome if the Kuu started invading people's houses to get them to convert.
Even funnier would be if they tried to invade the Gatchaman HQ.
Paipai is an alien supremacist so if it's not a bad alien it must be a paragon of good and can do no wrong.
It's a crowd as in "group of people".
No one want to be alone.
Easy to meld into a crowd.
Hard to go against the flow of a crowd.
You can only party if you have enough people.
Katze loves it because he can cause chaos amongst people.
We have a winner.
Also, don't forget that Nietzsche quote about insanity in groups being the rule.
This is the first post to sound actually right. Might even be disappointed if this isn't the case.
Holy fuck it was so obvious.
mfw that's why the CROWDS are called that
Now that you mentioned it it seems so obvious.
literally in sight
But what could OD do? He only transformed in the hopes that he could take down Katze before his powers disintegrated the world.
I think we have a winner here. I guess we didn't see the forest for the trees.
And of course it's not Gel! I love this.
Or maybe Tsubasa for once IS right, and Katze is manipulating Hajime.
Hajime being manipulated
Tsubasa is too fucking stupid to be right about anything.
Also, I would like to point out that in S1, the thing that saved the day were people coming together, using Crowds to save the day.
This time, crowds and people coming together is what is causing the world to go to shit.
Another subversion of the first season.
I really love this show.
OD only transforms when shit hits the fan so far there is no possible means of coming back. He transformed in S1 because there was no way to stop the Crowds.
This time, shit is even worse.
When did triforce stop working?
It only works on /b/.
not working there either
I don't think Gel is malicious, he's more like Tsubasa, well meaning but ultimately unable to understand the more complex points. Katze probably ran away from him because it's quite likely that what Gel attempted to do on earth worked on other alien planets without fucking up this badly, which means that Katze's MO of using the people cause chaos wouldn't work. He's constantly confused as to why people aren't happy all the time and why some people are having differing opinions etc on earth.
What's wrong with that? It's a great stress reliever.
The only thing worse than the antagonist doing shit for the evilz is the antagonist doing shit for "the greater good".
Doesnt Katze love other peoples suffering?
"the complex points" being free will
I'm looking at you Beta 7!
Because when you are directly responsible for imposing a privileged kind of justice and weird stuff is going on you need to be concentrated on the matter at hand. Not drunk or otherwise engaged.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions, obviously.
Also hilarious that in S1, Berg was intentionally wanting the world to go to shit, and, this time around, Gel is unintentionally bring the world to shit.
Gotta love those subversions.
Passion from the new OST
Quick, before we 404, everyone, post your favorite track from the new ost.
I swear every episode hajimes hajimes grow larger, must be a sign of her power.
oi, the overalls make them smaller, ya git
Well to be honest Joe drinks often but he never gets drunk as far as we seen. In fact, He looks like the type that enjoys watching people get drunk and lose control but is not the type that would want to lose control. Plus we haven't seen him relax and the Kuusama were so far nice. As for sex, even if you are fucked silly during emergencies your body does a pretty good job at recovering. Joe just wanted a few drinks and a quickie. Nothing wrong with that.
his waifu is literally cucking him with french flags
'GATCHAMAN Make my day' and 'da sprang die Katze rot!'
Was waiting for this.
He wasn't drunk. He was blushing because he was picturing fucking Alan or getting fucked after drinking with him.
They are in sight?
Would you really be ok with a man piloting an alien flying fire shooting power suit having "a few drinks"?
The irony is that following the crowds, being swept up in the atmosphere, is literally being out of sight. That's why the title "crowds in sight" is a contradiction, but that's exactly what's happening.
I really must wonder what the field "Rui Abuse" would like look like on a pie chart titled "Reasons for watching Gatchaman Crowds".
