It's "a person of power or supreme authority" isn't it? Is that too obvious?

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.

@Soft_member
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.

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.

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.

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.

I think they're supposed to represent the common thoughts of the people(like a hivemind) that has it's own body.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

@GoogleCat
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

@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.

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.

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.

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

@MPmaster

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.

@Techpill
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
