Because I can see exactly where they’re going with her character. We’re supposed to excuse her behavior because Zero Two is just a broken girl suffering from five types of schizophrenia because of her dark sordid evil science past. She’s going to act like a complete crazy bastard, completely off her rocker for the entire show using her sob story as a shield. Its boring and irritating.

So you want to ignore the entire metaphor of the Jorōgumo spider. You seem to be talking spiders in general.

Its a good anime.

And since TTGL+KLK people are behind it, anything could happen.

Even the official Darifura account is toying with the spider shit so yeah we take sides but even us Onifags are a little afraid that she might not be best girl ever and best love story ever told but a devouring spider that drew us all to her net.

And that makes it even more thrilling because we kinda share Hiro's feelings on that.

Asuka was pretty spunky from her introduction up until episode 20 or so.
>>
>>168460471
But still, only one week and people went onboard with it pretty quickly. And it is not just a meme, a lot of things, including the flowerposting itself, point to it actually happening. The only thing against it is the spider symbolism, which is probably just a red herring, since there is too much against it. But faggots will rather claim that is not red herring and the rest is, because fuck Occam's razor, am I right??
>>
>>168458985
Honestly if you didn't see this cliche coming and his eventual recovery/gaining more power then you are a complete idiot. Not only are both cliches common the set up that she was dangerous makes it incredibly obvious that something would happen. If you really thought him being able to handle her a bit would mean no issue would ever arise you'll be surprised at anything.

Next thing you'll be surprised that the grown ups are evil making a fake society and go "but the show had them on the good guy team who could have guessed!?"

Again, wow I can't imagine where former gainax employees got that idea. They sure love completely original ideas

I'm expecting Hiro to come out alive next episode, or even better then just alive, and 02 breaking down into sobbing from pent-up anxiety and relief. That she can truly believe her years of solitude are over and that she's found her mate.

I also kind of suspect 02's possessive nature of her darling will be ramped up to 11 at that point.

Does a bit for everyone. Mechafags get cool fresh robot design, fightfags get great animation, sci-fifags get interesting unexplained world, waifufags get a wide selection of girls catering to all tastes, deepfags get a mass of metaphors on relationships, sex, and societal attitude towards them, classicfags follow Trigger's pedigree.

And in a show heavy on symblosims, you really think they are going to heavily point in one direction and then slightly point in the opposite direction before a big conclusion just so that the heavy implications get thrown out of the window, instead of them just stirring shit up to make the anticipation of the heavily implied conclusion more interesting??

so wouldn't the obsessive loving of Hiro be the red herring?

But they need each other to fly. The spider symbolism goes against it, because the spider kills it's prey, thus it would render the bird symbolism useless, since it was stated only one of those birds is as good as dead.

The first time I saw the scene, without coming here first, I thought that the spider metaphor meant that Hiro thought he could be in that situation. Hiro is observing all of that so it makes sense that it would be from his POV too. This is also consistent with us seeing how Oni looks from other's point of view, pic related.

Because they want to test us. If us onifags are worth loving 02 as the show goes on, then we have to stay onifags even though a voice inside our head like that of Hiro is telling us she might as well devour us in the end.

The trick is not to care.

This is what makes it such a great red herring, there's a solid explanation behind it.

I honestly think the best piece of evidence comes from episode 3 and 2 though, where 02 has a brief monologue at the very end after piloting with Mitsuru and Hachi describes a fundamentally important aspect of the nature of compatibility respectively.

For the former, in her monologue she said that Mitsuru isn't cut out to be her darling, just like she thought. Before looking at Hiro and saying to herself that only Hiro is her darling.

The scene implies there is actually something very special and unique about Hiro for her, if she just wanted another corpse she could have stick with cunts like Mitsuru.

For the latter, Hach points out that for two partners to be compatible they have to trust each other. Implying that 02 and Hiro's compatibility of 98%, or so, means they trust each other on nigh every level. They'd willingly put their lives in the other's hands. Which jars considerably with 02 as a malicious schemer.

There's no trick. Even Hiro understands this.

Even if their third sortie ends with 02 literally ripping out his throat for shits and giggles, Hiro got what he wanted: He rode with 02 to the end.

Honestly though, I think that scene was more a dismissive response, she was yawning like 30 seconds earlier and clearly wanted to wrap up the conversation to get back to bed. I don't think 02 has put much thought into Hiro possibly dying, if she thinks he is capable of controlling the weather her estimation of his abilities are literally fantastical.

Not him, I don't know if she was crying, but considering how eager she was to get back to bed before the conclusion of her conversation with Ichigo and how she waited even after the rain ended for Hiro, specifically at the place she first met Hiro, the scene smacks heavily of her being introspective and sentimental.

Hell, nigh the first thing she does is ask if Hiro would still like to pilot with her.

Ichigo's words tore her heart out that night.

You are probably shitposting, but on the chance you are just a brainlet. He was avoiding her and until now, had only really shown he was interested in piloting with her. At the point of this moment, she thinks that he considers her a monster, was avoiding her out of fear and had only been using her for piloting. That's why she turned around after his confession, because it alleviated her fears.

I'd find it more suspicious if 02 immediately ran to Hiro the moment he showed up. That past episode he'd been avoiding her, 02 already suspected he might think of her as a monster at that point.

She returned when it became clear there was some depth to his emotions for her, that he wasn't some beta-cuck who was hoping to get into her Franxx.

Correction: Ichigo is a woman who genuinely cares about the man she loves (unlike oni slut who doesn't give a fuck about his well being). His business is her business, that's what love is.

This. At the start, Hiro is already with another woman. Ichigo didn't make an attempt until 02 came along, a girl who values him much more than the previous girl. Ichigofags are the Onoderafags of franxx threads.

Yeah, because of him being special for some reason. But Ichigo didn't bat an eye even if the situation for Hiro was bad, despite him having the chance to stay. He would still be a dead weight and what did Ichigo do?? Boss him around if he is going to come to the ceremony or not.

Or this very last episode
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBZ80vLSFeM


The show really has a lot going for it and for the few episodes that are out it has good rewatch value, you can see it's setting itself for greatness.

In the end it either resonates with you or it doesn't, if at this point you don't value it's SoL parts, the comedy, the drama, the relationships between the kids, the couples, the setting, the big picture, the underlying themes, the little details the mechas or the dinos then it's safe to drop this.

You're a mongoloid, the pegging """theory""" was never anything more than a shitpost and no one with half a brain took it seriously. Just because the 4koma isn't completely retarded too, and as such didn't have pegging, doesn't mean it was ever intended to be "proof" of anything.

Technically, for some people with genetic resistances to the disease, it is true that contracting HIV can make their immune systems stronger.

She probably is. She seems to have a very detached attitude towards death and doesn't value life very much. She applies that to everyone, including herself and including Hiro.

She does not view the possibility of death as a reason to not fight or to take it easy. We can see how she applies that idea to herself in the first episode when Hiro tries to stop her from solo piloting and she slaps him away, because her death is not a reason to not push forward. She views Hiro using the same mentality, his possible death is not a reason to not push forward, it's not a reason to hold back. Most importantly, she knows that this is what Hiro himself wants, because that's what he told her (first episode, again) and why she knows they're so similar.

Spider is supposed to be oni. But this is from Hiro's pov, he knows he's been ensnared by her charm and benefits that she brings. Yet he willingly surges forth with all the risks such as his tumor and 3 rides max. In his heart he knows it all but can't resist what he sees as possibly killing him.

>>168465441

That's what I'm thinking. Some STDs can be beneficial depending on who's infected. It's already been mentioned how HIV can strengthen the immune systems of those with a level of natural resistence.

02 knows Hiro HAS to fly with her. She witnessed him fail with Ichigo. She's making Hiro think he has a choice, a big sign of success for anyone trying to manipulate or seduce someone.
>>
>>168465490
It can't be an STD in the show though, as far as it goes it's a tumor or something attached to his heart transforming him.

If he actually does become another existence, that's nothing like an "STD"

No not really. You completely read episode 2 wrong.

>>168465704
No fucking shit, if the main character died though, now that would be a surprise.

>>168465765
This butterfly has been willing to die before the spider even showed up. Again, doesn't work. Neither of them value their own life.
>>168465838
Hiro was willing to throw his life away already, this is just giving him a shot at his dream before that happens. Doesn't invalidate the deathwish.
>>168465843
He got it from piloting with 02, presumably, so if you extend the obvious metaphor it's an STD. Just a really fucking dramatic one.

Once upon a time, I dreamt I was an oni, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes an oni. I was conscious only of my happiness as an oni, unaware that I was myself. Soon I awaked, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.
There you go, the plot for the last episode.

No you moron. She let Ichigo have him to prove Ichigo wrong and that Hiro is already her stamen. It was simple as that, on several other occasions it has all been Hiro's choice and no that was not manipulation, it was legitimate fear of him hating her.
>>
>>168465587
The point is that the spider has superficial similarities to Oni you mongoloid. Hiro thinks that he might be in the butterfly's situation, so of course the spider would be 02.

I think it's the tissue around his heart, if we did a cross-section of Hiro's chest at this point I'd say his heart has already been converted and is pumping klaxoblood through the rest of his body.

Something really cool is going to happen next episode, which is going to leave us feeling pumped.

The spider superficially refers to 02 through the devouring motif, which is what spiders do, what the Jorougumo is supposed to do and what 02 does to her typical stamen (though not in a literal sense in her case). Examining it a bit further, she doesn't actually have a motive to want to devour Hiro or to invest this much effort into getting a 'meal' because APE has stamens queuing up to die at her hands, so if that's what she wanted she would need to do nothing at all. It also conflicts with multiple other symbols associated with her and with what she wants

>her transforming into a maiden from a beast when Hiro becomes her darling (by proxy through Strelizia)
>her obvious fear and insecurity over being a monster

>>168466183
I don't even think you need to explain the first quote. It IS true that if Hiro died that would mean he didn't amount to much. However 02 doesn't think that is Horo's case, and we know she'd be devastated if he died.

Hiro made his choice very early in the series. Hiro's choice in the 5th episode is nothing but a reiteration of his choice in the 1st. He knew piloting could mean death, he went ahead anyway. Now he still knows it could mean death, he still goes ahead anyway.

She agreed with him because she thinks similarly of HERSELF. You are literally ignoring their meeting scene, her monologue, Episode 2, her piloting scene with Mitsuru, her talks with Ichigo, and I can keep going. There are plenty of scenes which have her display what she thinks of Hiro and what is Hiro to her. Hell, when they finally get in the cockpit she says it straight.
>>
>>168466687
She doesn't agree. She literally says that they are the same. And he says that if he can't pilot, he is as good as dead, not that they are gonna off him, because he got a special permission to stay and at first he declined it on his own. As the other anon said, rewatch the first episode.

>>168466687
The higher ups gave Hiro permission to remain, he only decided to follow Naomi becase he was feeling guilty. No one was going to kill him.

They aren't assumptions friend, look at the medical scene with Hachi and Nana again, they show Hiro's actual bloodwork figures around the spikey ball graphic, which in turn seems to indicate his blood composition by volume.

You can see other details from the graphic, such as his platelet count being low and his hemoglobin density being strangely up.

uhhhh not if she's a lying seductress they aren't
>>
>>168466293
He could just pussy out and give up.
He does have a choice, but his only choice goes against his ideals. But plenty people do betray their ideals when they are pushed against the prospect of death.
That's not manipulation. It's giving him a choice to go all out or pussy out.

She's doing the opposite to Hiro though, pumping him full of her klaxogenes.
>>
>>168467029
K.

>>168466865
I just now realised. Is that cane made out of a klaxosaur??
>>
>>168466971
"yellow blood cells" being "magical alien blood" is a huge leap in logic, since everyone has those, and those who pilot with 002 get a low count of them, leading to complications. It's something exclusive to the setting they are in, but not exclusive to Hiro.
If anything, Hiro is showing the signs of having anemia along with magical leukemia, or since you're too autistic about that, xanthemia.

>>168466965
>I'm worthless and that's the same as being dead
>wow just like me!
literally verbatim kill yourself monkey
>>168467010
>>She doesn't agree. She literally says that they are the same.
>>
>>168467121
Now interpret that scene a little differently and you may not look like you're projecting.
>>
>>168467044
okay so instead of dying he would choose to be worthless, which is the same as dying except you don't get to help anyone.
yeah I think Hiro had a choice here.
>>
>>168466882
No you fucking developmentally challenged monkey, if she's the same it means SHE is also no better than dead without a place to belong.
>>
>>168466653
>there's also that rare case of pilots showing no signs of aging despite riding with her...
What? Is that line accurately translated?
So Hiro isn't an unprecedented case? That's weird as fuck. Everyone including the APE guys all appeared really surprised in the anime.
And then there was even the yellow blood cell thing where they stated his reaction was the opposite from previous partners.

Is the manga a different continuity or is that line simply weirdly translated?
>>
>>168467121
>he thinks saying they are literally the same means his whole worthless angle applies
no anon
>>
>>168467121
Yes. Because she doesn't agree with what YOU were implying, which was that without her he would be dead, not as good as dead, to which you changed your argument to save face, but the thing I greentexted, which you literally wrote. Stop being such a fucking imbecile.
>>
>>168466294
The spider was not a metaphor for what 02 will do to Hiro.
It was a metaphor for what Hiro feared would happen to him.
We see that he is not a stoic fearless type, he does fake his determination and his bravery a lot.
So he no doubt must have been worried about his fate until he ultimately decides to tell 02 that he'll ride her again.

That's it.
It's not that complicated everyone!
>>
>>168467231
Wrongly translated. Hiro's focal point was him not aging.
>>
>>168467205

How fucking retarded do you have to be to think that??
>>
>>168467243
>better move the goalposts!
>>168467245
No that was a different point that I conceded because I was wrong. Nice try though you almost read a post correctly for once.
>>
>>168467302
>I have nothing else to say so I'll keep insulting
Shitposter.

>>168467322
One is not shitty though. Especially in the world they live in. They are child soldiers.
>>
>>168467105
>"yellow blood cells" being "magical alien blood" is a huge leap in logic, since everyone has those, and those who pilot with 002 get a low count of them, leading to complications

What are you on about? All the parasites are likely klaxo hybrids, but to a far lesser degree than 02.

>It's something exclusive to the setting they are in, but not exclusive to Hiro

Except we know that Hiro's count is going UP, opposite of what every other partner of 02 has experienced. Fuck, you can literally see in the graphic it shows that his already abnormally large YBC count had increased by 11% in 24 hours.

Do you just dislike the fact they're setting Hiro up to transform into whatever 02 is? And looking for reasons to claim that's not what's happening?
>>
>>168467322
>death
or
>worse death
hmmmmm hard choice I wonder what Hiro will do
>>168467368
I fucking outlined it three times you fucking retarded meathead.
>>
>>168467350
Not moving goalposts though. Go watch episode 1.
>>
>>168467350
>conceded
You didn't concede anything. You kept on pushing that point until suddenly you were like "guys, this is what I meant, can't you read??"
Neck yourself.
>>
>>168466380
>No he can't you fucking troglodyte
They gave him the choice to remain you idiot
>>
>>168467409
It doesn't matter how many times you outlined it. It is indeed a fairly hard choice and it took him a while to get to pick what he wanted to do. All which Zero Two respected.
>>
>>168467267
this. It's more a metaphor for "the 3rd ride" than for a supposedly evil 02.
>>
Just a reminder. Their blood is blue but their cores have a yellow tone inside. And they are effectively their "heart".
>>
>>168467368
>being a child soldier in a world where you are easily disposable of and can't become an adult is not shitty
>>
>>168467231

I think the word choice in translation is poor: He's not saying Hiro's a part of a rare set of cases, he's saying out of every case, he's unique. He's not rare in incidence, but rare in quality.
>>
>>168467302
Jesus fuck, you're one offensively dumb motherfucker.
>get gunned down in the streets you fucking ape
Kindly provide an example of how to achieve this for me to follow
>>
>>168467350
You're fucking up.
>>
>>168458172
How about watching it and finding out for yourself
>>
>>168467475
Furthermore look at what Strelitzia sucks in episode 1 out of the core. Yellow liquid.
So you think it's just a coincidence that the magical blood of the enemies is blue and their cores produce a yellow liquid and now Hiro happens to have a growth with blue veins and yellow cells?
>>
>>168467488
From what options they have? of course not.
>>
>>168467568
>since they have limited options, it somehow makes the rest not shitty, even if they ARE shitty
Your line of logic is fucking retarded. It's like saying someone born a slave doesn't have a shitty life because this is the only option he has.
>>
>>168467557

Is that correct? I thought that scene was the lance being charged with magma-energy and ejecting an empty flask

Not disagreeing with the premise, but perhaps they're using a power source of a similar energy state to beat the enemy's defenses?
>>
>>168467641
That's the world they live in. That's the emotions you saw of Hiro when he was riding from the choice he made. It's not that hard as its not reality.
>>
>>168467475
That's probably "magma energy", or so I thought.

>>168467557
Strelizia is pumping it in, not sucking it out. You can look at if frame by frame if you don't believe me.
>>
>>168467557
it's just that magma fluid that they put in everything from guns to cellphones.
>>
>almost 700 replies

This is just sad. This cancerous circlejerking won't stop. You don't need to pretend this is something big or anything.
>>
>>168467557
That's the magma weapon.
>>
>>168467760
Nah we will just to piss you off more. It's fairly popular.
>>
>>168467726
No matter how you try to justify it, from a logical standpoint it is a shitty life. And this show is hinting quite a lot at a possible uprising and APE being the ultimate enemies. So saying that all is fine and dandy is not only naive, but it doesn't even work with the narrative of the show itself.
>>
>>168467760
You're not a new IP either. Thanks for contributing!

If you think that ratio is bad, you should visit some of the generals on /trash/.
>>
>>168467760
130 IPs is above average for a thread. The fact that it also reached 700 replies just means there was a lot of discussion as well.
>>
>>168467760
The current ip/post ratio is something like 4.9 posts per ip.
How's that a circle jerking?
>>
>>168467760
It means we have a discussion going.

>>168467760
Meanwhile, VEG can barely scrape together 50, with over half of those being franxxfags. Great show, Kyoani.

>>168467828
Nevermind, I misread your original point in the first place. That was my bad, sorry.

I don't get it. The MC is a cuck? Why let mitsuru ride her?

>>168467423
They were two separate points you illiterate faggot. do I have to tell you a third time?

>>168467965
Did you see the situation? orders they were under? It's better if she went.
>>
>>168467965
literally weeks and many memes behind.
>>
>>168467978
I read all those posts until you changed the argument. Nowhere were they two separate arguments. You just changed it and acted like that was it all along. Making shitty excuses won't help you.
>>
>>168467978
Then spell it out better.
