How come japan thinks it's a good thing to bait and switch with romance? To slowly build the relationship between two partners only to replace one with another character who is neither as good nor as developped as the first one? What of the viewer's investment in the character? Are we expected to switch gears so easily?
This is as though Richard Geere actually dumped the slut in the trash (where she admittedly belongs) ten minutes before the end of the movie to marry another character. Not that zaShunina is a slut, but he's the heroine and Pretty Woman is the only romance I remember watching right now.

>>158685689
She directly disproves that and made the show shit. Episodes 9 and 10 ruined every bit of moral ambiguity and questioning of Kantian ethics that had been building up before hand, tossed out in favor of easy answers and a cheap "heroine gets her guy" scenario. We have two more episodes to get back on track. I'm hopeful, but I won't be expecting much.

Not too crazy over how things have turned out these last two episodes, wanted to see Nonomeis-hein in different applications and show the larger scale ramafications of it (which i guess we'll see next episode) The viewing of the higher dimensions was cool though and the fact that there are many other antistropic beings does leave open possibilities.

Saraka just seems more of a possessive nut to me then anything, though yes Za isnt putting himself in a good light either he is at least so far still adamant about improving humanity, Saraka just wants things left as they are even if it only leads to their heat death.

Sucks there has been little to no Shindo negotiations with space jesus lately.

>渡辺: そこは観てのお楽しみですかね。恋愛的な要素もありますし、SF的な要素もあるので、SFプラス、恋愛、ヒューマンドラマです。
Here the director confirms that there's a love triangle of some sort. It's sci-fi plus romance, according to him.
>真道というキャラは男らしいので、対比的にどうしてもザシュニナや沙羅花が女性らしくなってしまうんです。
Shindo is a masculine character, while zaShunina and Tsukai are contrastive to him and more feminine.
>渡辺: SFだけだと男性ファンになってしまいますが、男女の恋愛や男性キャラクター同士の掛け合い的な要素も入ってくるので、女性にも楽しんで見てもらえると思っています。
Science fiction is generally more popular among men, but since the show also contains such things as male-female (or intersex) romance, it should be enjoyable for women too.

>>
>>158691159
In context, I'm pretty sure male-female is the right translation. If the director thinks women will pick up his show for romance, I kind of doubt he's thinking they'll pick it up because the romance involves an intersex/hermaphrodite/androgynous character.

No he's right, if anything, it was probably an intentional double entendre.
Why would you ever need to specify a romance is "male-female"? Usually you don't, you only specify what genders are involved when it's homo.

Same, but I wonder if it's intentional? This show is so divisive depending on whether you lust after Saraka or zaShunina. Sure I get that they wanted me to like Tsukai but the message just flew me by without reaching me.
>>
>>158685957
>There was no ambiguity since the very beginning. Anyone with brain immediately questioned zaShunina's motives.
Exactly this. SO many people in these threads are hung up on this fantasy where humans are going to get uplifted just because of a "benevolent alien god" wants his husbando to be 40D just like him and accept everything he says as pure truth.

Personally I've always gotten a 'deal with the devil' vibe from zaShunina regardless of what others call good intentions, but I am in the minority here.
>>

Tsukai would have been more interesting if she didn't overflow with emotions.
She's like an exaggerated human. She is more human than Shindo.

I know right. But then again Shindo is good at his job.
I'm actually surprised by how much I hate Tsukai. She's like a crystallization of everything I hate in a heroine. Informed abilities she never shows or put in practice, gets the boy without much effort and harms a character I like more in the process, forced cuteness, overreaction and embarassment for the sake of comedy, etc.
I'm too old for this shit.

>>158696018
Did they seriously expect female viewers to be interested in this after all the zaShunina fujobaiting? What were they thinking?
>>
the part that felt like an asspull to me wasn't even the saraka/shindo thing it was the fact that the show suddenly focused on how humanity is this special snowflake that was spawned from a miracle with odds that were slim to none

i dont know, portraying ourselves like this seems kind of arrogant and conceited to me, to think that we are worth literally anything compared to the universe beyond us. zashunina says that humanity can "provide an endless stream of information for the anisotropic beings to digest" but really??? is there nothing else in existence that can do that? youre telling me civilizations like ours arent abundant in the infinite number of information cocoons you have? the writers choice to say "yeah basically" ticks me off

also this isnt even an issue with the philosophies of zashunina/saraka, both of them place humanity at this sort of pedestal so really this is just something the show as a whole wants to convey to its viewers.

Not every setting has to be Star Wars with hundreds of sentient species.

Although for beings like the anisotropic, who have presumably seen countless big bang-expansion-entropy-heatdeath cycles would invariably come across more than just humans. We are talking about timeframes so inconceivable to us that sentient life surely must have formed at some point.

I'm curious as to where the anisotropic came from, originally. Are they an ascended human-like species, some weird void psion eldar god, or what? Have they "always existed"?

I don't see anything wrong with that, if anything I find it more conceited to just reject the notion entirely. We still have yet to find extraterretrial life, much less meet extraterrestrial civilizations. Fermi's paradox makes a good point: Where is everyone? Why haven't we been conquered and exploited by green space nazis? As terrifying as being alone might be, it is a valid answer that should be examined. Nothing wrong with using it as a scifi setting.

If you start thinking about how long it'd take for a space faring race to conquer the milky way and at least evidence, the numbers get even grimmer.
It'd only take 100,000 years or so to get from one end of the milky way to the other, and so, in galactic time that's nothing. If there was an intelligent species that got to real space colonisation in our own galaxy, we would have seen them already. We would have likely already been genocided and enslaved by them already, too.
If you consider the error rate on the evolution of intelligent to be +- a few hundred millions of years (with a little luck we could have been earlier... or maybe later, the point being we have no reference so the error rate should be pretty high), we're either the first spacefarers or the only ones, either way, we're alone in the galaxy.

While it's not inconceivable that they're undetectable (due to using technologies we have yet to understand) it is highly unlikely due to the lack of evidence.

Also it's much more likely that they'd be conquering us for the resources.

I think there was a shift as the first 8 episodes were basically Zashunina showing his toys to humans, with him and Tsukai being cute. Then it's about the two of them fighting for a guy using plasma swords. It didn't bother me but I can understand the complaints.
At first I was expecting the series to get more political and to go deeper into the consequences of giving the anisotropic objects to Humanity, but by episode 8 not anymore as there was no way they could do that in a measly 4 episodes and resolve everything. So if Tsukai being an anisotropic was unexpected, the general direction the anime went in wasn't. I can't say I'm not a bit disappointed, but what we're getting fits pretty well the 12 episodes format. Having more politics and hard sf would have required 2-cour to be good and not feel rushed.

zaShunina's role and actions were written and directly stated by creators to be "divisive", so, yeah, you are in the minority for not seeing the basic concept of his character.

So how many viewers have actually went back and rewatch all of Tsukai's scenes in a different light. Like this scene, initially, it seemed like she was just talking about the general population. But with the reveal, it was clear that by "hito", she was referring to humanity as a whole.

What's the difference between the general population and humanity as a whole?

>>158702997
Watching every single one of her scenes would be too painful, since she's hailed in-universe as a fantastic negotiator, before proceeding to be shamefully unprofessional in about every scene we get in an otherwise professional context. That's been her biggest flaw in my eyes since the beginning. Nothing excuses it.

It's complicated because zaShunina is (or was) a genuinely pure and gentle creature; the contrast between his docile, mild nature and indifferent, incomprehensibly distant perspective is at the core of his personality. Even the official sources pointed out that all his earnestness, docility etc. were entirely honest. Now that he's grown emotions, his sheer inhumanity is becoming insustainable even for himself.

Note that it was only Shindo's speculation that he was changed by books; zaShunina left it without comment. Judging from his overall change and the official info, it was actually Shindo who changed him. It was clear by ep3 that zaShunina was growing attached.

The theme of the show is communication and yet zaShunina spent MONTHS with humans and was never told even once that using Cut & Paste on a human is not socially accepted. This is forced drama in its purest form. Then the show tried to make a transition between this drama and Tsukai's non-interventionist philosophy that is completely unrelated to the matter at hand.

Shindo is an alien from an even more advanced world than the anisotropic beings. He entered the cocoon of the anisotropic and then entered the cocoon of the humans. He did this in order to witness how the anisotropic beings are going to interact with humans. This show is actually about the anisotropic being judged, and the best way to judge someone is when they believe to be in a position of superiority.

If he decided to kill himself to escape the pain, it wouldn't make sense for him to just kill his body. He'd kill his anisotropic consciousness first.
But yeah, like you said, we don't even know if suicide is possible for anistropes.

>now I'm having Casshern Sins flashbacks. This shit is equally deppressing, I didn't sign in for this suffering
Now that you mention it that's true. There's this sense of inevitability, that doom and suffering for all parties involved are the only possible outcome and the MCs struggles are wasted effort. Much like a tragedy.

According to them everything in the Universe is data and even in our 3D world you can't completely erase every trace of information. Nina wanted to preserve humanity for eternity by advancing people to the anisotrope so we can assume 40D is an eternal storage of information. Also it looked like the closest thing to suicide would be what Tsukai did by entering lower dimensions and losing touch with more detailed information about her 40D version. But these original information are probably still there, she can't just reach them anymore.

If these aliens are still having their individuality after removing as much as 37 dimensions I'm afraid in every dimension consciousness stays intact so the answer would be no. zaShuina is most likely bound to experience his own existence endlessly.

This show is good but has 3 problems:
1. Anime tropes. They don't really fit in with the subject matter and style of the show.
2. In Arrival the only question every country had whether the aliens are friend or foe and what their goals are. Here nobody cares. Nobody at all. Why?
3. The reveal of the true motivation for zaShunina feels like the show jumped the shark and is impossible to redeem by a "negotiation" which is Shindous main skill.

They do, except it's impossible to tell. zaShunina tells them right at the very beginning that he can be seen as an ally or enemy depending on what each person wants. The show repeatedly tells you that you can't stick a simple friend/foe label on a creature that doesn't operate on the same morality and has a completely different perspective.
>impossible to redeem by a "negotiation" which is Shindous main skill.
Why not? Even when extremely agitated, stressed and despairing, he still asked Tsukai and Shindo to tell him where's he's wrong. If they can get him to calm down, he's liable to adjust his position.

It's a trilogy called " Le cycle des dieux" "The cycle of the gods". It's about a guy and several famous dead french guys becoming god apprentices. They learn to guide their people from the paleolithic to the current era through religion, revelations, divine interventions and inspirations. If they screw up their people die.

It was a case of slightly dodgy translation, but IIRC he said "If I tell you now, I will lose the chance to correct your mistake", implying he thought that whatever leverage he had over zaShunina wouldn't work at that very moment (because of Tsukai's presence, emotions running high etc.).

While I can understand the fujos here, I'll never understand the retards shipping Komaeda with Hajime. I mean, sure, Komaeda may have feelings for Hajime. But the game makes it very clear they're one sided because Hajime doesn't even bother to hide his hatred towards Nagito once his true nature comes out in Chapter 1's trial.
Hell, even in the free time events, Hajime makes it obvious he only hangs with Komaeda because he''s afraid of the crazy guy and wants to avoid getting murdered by him

I mean, the anisotropics are inherently somewhat childish in some aspects; you can see it in zaShunina too. They're emulating lifeforms completely alien to them, so some differences are expected.

So let's say there's this guy who's dangerous and might be out to kill you. Who would go out of their way to hang out with him? Like, isn't being alone together with him the one thing you would want to avoid, usually.
Sure SDR2 is a dating sim and it would be weird if Hinata couldn't hang with Komaeda but that's a meta reason, not a good enough reason in universe.
Hinata does a lot of things through the game that don't make sense with his dislike for Komaeda and that culminates with his seeing through the case in chapter 5, which he could never have managed to do if it weren't for his twisted friendship (though Monokuma calls it True friendship) with Komaeda. If this were Gundam I'd say they're characters who reached true UNDERSTANDING.

Now you know why there's not a general for this anime going on 24/7. It's really interesting, but the threads attract way too many retarded shippers and fujos (same thing, in most cases).

See >>158685321 for a perfect example of everything wrong with trying to discuss Kado. There's occasionally interesting discussion early after the episode airs, but since episode 9 even that's being overrun. If you based your impression of Kado on /a/'s recent threads, you'd swear this was a shitty romance series, not sci-fi.

There is absolutely no gayfaggotry between Zash and Shindo. Even faggots are not grills, if they wanna fuck, they will right away.

>>158731988
By japanese standards, "Would you come with me to the anisotropic" is a wedding proposal.
>>158462972 explained it very well.
But even without this, you should have been able to read the mood and tell that zaShunina's expressions are way too intense and longing to be an expression of friendship.
>>
>>158731988
zaShunina isn't gay or even male in the way we understand it. He's canonically in love with Shindo and it's actually the source of all his current problems.

Good question. Why are godlike aliens fucking around with Japanese indirect muh implications instead of "Let me touch your benis?"
>>
>>158734237
Slaughterhouse Five has the aliens keeping the humans in a comfortable sex zoo visited by alien students and they also give the humans a better bible in which jesus is a hobo and god will punish anyone who harms another, even hobos. The aliens also have sex in many invisible dimensions and encourage the humans to focus on the good things in life. zaShunina clearly needs to get his priorities in order.

It seems the anisotropics are so old it could be said they have always existed. zaShunina doesn't consider his species all that special ("I am no god. I am just an anisotropic being."), but their age and perspective obviously makes them different.

There are so many strings you have to think through with something like this. I think it has done a passable job thinking through the political aspect of the affair. But there's also the legal aspect (which can be handwaved), the religious aspect and the cultural one.
No mass hysteria is pretty impressive.
>>

Have some more religious paralelles been discussed in these threads? ZaShunina's plans to spirit some humans away into the anisotropic made me think of religious ascension myths.

I know episode 10 was beyond stupid, but I still have faith that they're going to parallel Episode 0 with the series as a whole and come to an ending where both parties are satisfied.
Maybe zaShunina uplifts some people, maybe just Shindo. Maybe even one of Shindo's clones. The reincarnation ending makes sense with all the foreshadowing, but doesn't make sense if they go the 'negotiation' route. Hopefully the show won't go full retard and ignore the "negotiation is about finding the best option for both parties" idea they emphasized at the end of episode 0 and the beginning of episode 1 and just destroy zaShunina instead of talking it out.
I really, REALLY don't want the reincarnation ending.

So, Urgnock, you've seen a coal power plant in action now.

>>158744373
No buildup on the romance beyond a single episode wherein there was zero chemistry between them (sure, Saraka was blushing up a storm, but Shindo reacted to none of it) was my main complaint. I don't even dislike Tsukai, but I really wish they'd had more time to develop their relationship instead of going from barely acquaintances to THEY'RE IN LOVE NOW

I feel you anon, I used to be so certain of what direction the show would take, but now I wouldn't be surprised if they dumped even the tacit structure of "your first episode and its resolution must be similar to the whole story's, albeit at a lesser scale". Moreoever the writer seems to write backwards. That stupid reincarnation ending might happen. The talk about a weapon is especially suspicious.

Nothing good ever comes from reincarnation in fiction. Sometimes it's cheesy but okay (Terra E's ending) but more often than not it's a premise or a device for terrible storylines (Uraboku, Naruto, half the SNK doujins, etc). And now in Kado it will serve as a device to chilzone zaShunina.
>>

>>158744373
The better developped character with the better developped, deeper romantic feelings and the better chemistry with the MC was ntred in favor of an all around inferior character, who, despite limited screentime, still managed to make me despise her. And not just that, the anime cumulated an inordinate amount of extremely cheesy and cliché scenes in less than 3 minutes: Shindo throwing himself in front of Tsukai, "but why! why did you protect me, I'm an anisotropic being, and you've been hanging around one for two whole months" "ha, i am ningen that's why", healing kisses, fake morning after (kyyyaaah!).

Of all the fujobaiting, zaShunina in love is one of the things actually confirmed. Granted, they also describe it as a love that can't be categorized, since zaShunina doesn't distinguish between deep trust, romantic love, etc. He does love him, but it's an abstract kind of love.

Couldn't you could watch many more Ds of hentai then?

>>158754299
But who is making the hentai, anon? How much of eternity could you spend watching reruns before you lust for fresh smut?

To say nothing of the really weird antediluvian stuff like the Sumerian King List with rulers who lived for tens of thousands of years.
