Seriously, the PAS translations, as good as they are, really make Lapis extremly unlikeable. I'm really glad that you never see that shit-tier infodump plotdevice again.

The cheapshit translations at least managed to make Lapis talk more normaly and even give a few hints of a personality here and there. I don't even care about the minor added context since its not even that hard to figure this stuff out by yourself by reading the past chapters or simply use common sense. Phos basically comes to same conclusions even if you only take the shittranslations by heart. The more accurate translation simply made things easier for the reader to understand the story better. This is unacceptable because this is /a/ and I liked the ambiguity of the MSPaint one way more, it added quite a lot of mystery to the whole thing.

I've JUST finished marathoning this series and don't know how to feel. I really enjoyed the journey, but the ending left me unbelievably blank, bordering on dissatisfied. I'm still rolling things around in my mind.

As for a favorite gem: It's hard to decide. All are nice and unique in their own ways and it was a treat to see them interact with each other. Bort turned out better than I expected. Cinnabar and Dia are top cute. Parappa is pretty dashing.

The anime is a nice complement to the manga overall, but this series is a difficult one to make an adaptation of if it's not going to be the whole thing at once, since there's no good stopping point for a one cour production to end at.
Since completed manga series rarely get adaptations unless they're popular, since a lot of adaptations are just advertisements for the manga, I doubt there will be an S2 almost just because it'll mean ending on a huge cliffhanger again. It would also be frustrating for people who have only watched the series given how the plot continues to escalate rapidly after the events of S1.

I like to think I have a selective dick. So far the bells chime only for Rutile, Lapis Lazuli, and a post-trauma Phosphophyllite. But I gotta say damn dude Padparadscha is mad flackin if you catch my drift. Like Padparadscha could be halfway through a wink and my butt cheeks will already be spread and I will be face down in dirt or whatever was currently under me at the time. I mean I don’t care if this guy smashed gems in half or fucking killed them because there’s so much I would do to his 8 foot blue whale cock that he won’t even be able to finish the his deathsleep or whatever. I mean I never even read the manga but he doesn’t need inclusions to sway me toward the dark side of the moon.
Just look at his hair. That’s the coup de gras as they say in western China. Dude could give Sphene a run for his money and that guy didn’t even wield the largest and thickest sword. He was like “oooh I’m so manly” but Padparadscha has been doing this curls shit since Yellow was like two years old. That’s like human time and Sphene definitely hasn’t been around until at least after Euclase the ugly was the fürher of the Land of the Lustrous. Look we all know Padparadscha was hot why is this event even here. We should focus on the real issues like was Aechmea into anal. Moonie fun-time, am I right?
>>
>>178080824
Anon that's gay and you reminded me that I want to know the exact ages of all the elder gems.
So far we only have Yellow and Euc but there's like about 1500 years difference between then yet they're both considered part of the senior group.

We know the senior group consists of at least Yellow, Pad, Euc, Sphene, Peridot and Alex. I'd really like to know the ages of Red Beryl and fucking Lapis.

the bare minimum seems to be 1500 years, although it could be generational gap only in the sense of closeness, Dia can read what Shinsha really means with her words and both of them were born on the same year so they were probably taught by sensei at the same time, so I guess that when you've known someone for over literal millennia you will be closer to them that to someone much younger

PAS also translated chapter 46 and 47 because they're important in terms of Phos general character progression. You can read them on mangadex. I guess the bad translations won't become properly translated for the time being because they're passable and not really important.
>>
>>178082720

What I also mean was that reading the raws also made Lapis feel more likeable. With the PAS translation Lapis seems more like a robot. It also doesn't fit what Euc says about Lapis later in the story. And its not like Lapis was faking herself all the time, Ghost said that Phos and Lapis had very similar demeanor. If anything Lapis was simply sly.

Characterisation is more important for a plot that is this simple, you can even grasp the story by reading through it quickly in a few minutes, though perhaps this might require some knowledge that you might get from lurking on here. Anything else is speculation by reading between the lines for the less obvious stuff and I don't even mean the stuff related to the Moonpearl. This becomes really evidential in threads like these, where people simply enjoy the plot because they like some of the characters, theres not much else to do. The world building on here was done really quickly in terms of progression, nowadays people want to know more about the moon than the island, because thats done and dusted for years already. Most speculation that people do is simply because theres really not much to say about this plot or the story and most of Ichikawas plottwist actually add to the worldbuilding rather than to base it from what had already happened in places that are fleshed out. For instance, the next big plottwist might be related to the Admirabilis since we don't know much about them just as we didn't know much about the Lunarians before chapter 52 where things started to get interesting.

All of these reasons I mentioned are also why theres so much good fanart made by people who really care about capturing the characters in the way they see them.

Now here's a question to get the good ol' noggin' joggin'. Is Phos the only gem able to communicate with the jellyfish? We've seen the others use them for various things but never talk or give orders like our Master Scholar.
If she is and the others are incapable, then is it due to having been processed by Ventricocus all those years ago or is there some other tomfoolery at work here?
Could this have further implications on the story?
We also 'saw' the Lunarians talking with the slugs during hostage negotiations so it's safe to assume that the two species are somehow capable of dialogue which then leads us to ask why slugs can talk with clouds and not rocks.
>>
>>178085469
It's implied it's because of the slug ability, seeing as we never see Phos speaking to them prior to Ventricosus stuff.
Maybe gems don't communicate with a human like language since they don't even have tongues, teeth or lungs.
>>
So who was it who was carrying Phos back to Rutile's office everytime he got smashed, because as far as we've seen only Bortz and Pad can lift him (maybe hardness nines and tens in general).
>>
>>178085469
Whatever interactions Phos has had with the jellyfish are probably just there for comic relief and aren't really plot points.

>>178085563
Sensei would be the one who taught them language, it's probably safe to assume that they can produce human sounds and are speaking a human language even if they're lacking the organs required to do so, I would just wave that away as inclusion magic

I really love the amount of quality fanart this series has inspired.

I like the idea that Bortz carried Phos' body back because he was too heavy for the others. It's cute.
>>
>>178085563
Not true, gems communicate in a human like language, considering they were all raised and teached by Sensei who was build by humans. The jellyfish are simply just pets for the Gems in similar vain as they're more like cattle for the Lunarians. But I don't believe that the Lunarians harvest and kill them however.

Gems are the "partial" ancestors of Humans and Humanity itself simply because Sensei acknowledged their existance on this world as a lifeform and thus could give them a reason to exist. Otherwise all gems are simply just rocks that crawl around according to the inclusions will. Everything they know is because of Sensei himself. Also don't bring science into the plot or else it falls apart entirely within a second.

When I read the manga for the first time it took me like a little less then an hour to read through it and understand any of that stuff. Grasping any of this is not quantum mechanics and shouldn't take you less than a few seconds at worst.

>>178085659

Then what let's the Lunarians speak with the Admirabilis and not the Lustrous?
As far as we know they're all descendants of humanity and as such share the same common ancestor.
Personally I like to think that all 3 species speak different languages but the moonmen built a universal translator and just use that to speak rock and slug.
>>
>>178085978
Ghost (hardness 7) couldn't even lift Phos' lower half off the moon platform, so in the case where Phos was decapitated his body would be significantly heavier. I was taking into account how practical it would be to carry him.
>>
>>178086045
It would be more weird for them not to speak different languages. The moonies are immortal, so either their language would evolve slowly due to slang and the like, or it would just stay the same.
The gems learn language from a static figure, so their language should be something that was spoken when humans were alive.
Granted that the moonies language has more or less remained the same, they should be able to speak the same language as the gems.
The slugs, meanwhile have a lifespan of what, 20 years? so their language must have changed drastically over the tens of thousands of years since they were at the same starting point as the other two races.
The moonies have enough tech to probably just build a translation program, but the gems, who first of all have no interest in communicating with the slugs, and also don't have access to technology, just think that the slug's weird squeaks and noises are random animal sounds.

Things to consider.

>Aechmea knew Ventricosus name and knew who that person was.
>For some reason, Ventricosus was kept intelligent while everyone else had decreased intelligence due to the shit they eat on the moon.
>Ventricosus and Aech must've talked to each other to conduct the exchance between Phos and Aculeatus.
>This is probably linked to the reason that the Admirabilis immediatly turn back into normal when they're on Earth.
>Aechmea implied that he knows what the deal about the Admirabilis and its most likely the reason they're taken to the moon, but didn't care to mention any further.
>They're giving the Admirabilis culture, since they have schools for them or do some sort of teaching, we have yet to know more about them but they're not threatening the Admirabilis as cows.
>They're forced to work for the Lunarians however.
>Phos remembered Ventricosus right after he mentioned her name, even though Phos has lost memories about it, obviously means that his inclusions worked harder then ever and that his powerlevel increase is linked with the god-tier inclusions at play.
>We don't know yet why the Admirabilis are capable to live on the Moon or if this is even important to the plot.
>With all of this this written, we can conclude that from the Lunarians perspective, they must've raided the Admirabilis hometurf not because of bloodthirst, but for something else that the Lunarians aren't capable off perhaps conducting certain experiements linked towards the human particle.

I think its safe to say that while Aech does want to leave the plane of existence he also doesn't want humanity to fully cease existing entirely. They, or at least Aech, knew more than anyone that living as a Human is the most wholesome experience, simply because he acknowledged that they're incomplete shit from what Humans once were when Aech spoke to Phos while he was drunk. Its obvious that he knows because he was a Human once.

>>178090487
that's to avoid Tumblr drama, in the original Japanese they use a masculine dialogue to counterweight their mostly feminine appearance, use whatever you feel like or even play around a bit
>>
>>178090487
Because of the rise of 'they' as a neutral pronoun. Gems don't have a sex, so technically calling a gem 'he' doesn't make sense without a 'she'. The official translations go out of their way to avoid pronouns of any kind for gems even though in Japanese they're quite happy to use words for males.
>>
>>178090487
Probably people getting hung up about muh pronouns again
I'm not sure any of them even know what male or female means
>>
>>178090487
Because rocks are genderless and they have no fucking clue what gender even is. They don't teach that stuff at gemschool so its just like your avarage clapburger schooling.

People using he are just as wrong as people using she. They don't have tits, p0n0s or a vag00. Their ass don't even have a hole, they're also probably cold as fuck so your dick will probably get limp by rubbing your cock on their buttcheeks.
>>
>>178090586
But we have a problem here... Sensei's Big budhist cock is for human use only.
With such beautiful gembutts specialy amethyst with hair down, if he didn't have the restriction, he would probably sleep with a diferent gembutt every night and before winter they would have a big orgy then get clean and put the hibernation pajamas
>>
>>178090821
Sensei is an upstanding Buddhist man, he’d never have any inappropriate sexual relations with his rocks
>>
>>178090637
Thats also because the Japanese don't use they so balancing it out is the only naturally neutral approach for them. That or trying to write around that is catastrophic when you're trying to do that in japanese.

Also not every gem uses "he" as a term, they basically pick whatever they fuck they want. Phos back in the flashback also used the feminine clothes back when Sensei teched language but that changed once Phos got older.

And seriously, fighting over pronounce is dumb as fuck. Not because of what you wrote but rather because from the standpoint of the gems, they don't really care what the fuck they address themselves simply because gender does not exist in their world.

His programming told him to serve humans, but seeking out other lifeforms and helping them can only superficially understood as this. In truth he saw himself in the gems so he helped them out in both serving and "serving" as their leader. Not to mention that it was Sensei that gave the Gems the freedom to betray him.

just now came this though to my mind, the Professor was the last human, right? or at least the last one Sensei remembers or even knew, so does that mean that the gems are modeled after her body?

I've been wondering how much free will Sensei has. We know that he cannot reveal certain information, but are there any actions that he is compelled to do? If he is compelled to pray and it's not a choice, then we know that it's some sort of mechanical failure or something.

Not necessarily, I think it might be a safe bet that the lunarians are everyone that died after the professor did.

>Phos back in the flashback also used the feminine clothes back when Sensei teched language but that changed once Phos got older.
They look more feminine but that's just their summer outfit. Phos doesn't wear it because the black clothes are mourning clothes, and it symbolises his depression. When he switches to the white moon outfit, he has come out of mourning and is trying to actively change the situation.

Might be true but you're ignoring that Euc is using "feminine" clothes for instance. You also have no idea that the colour black in japanese symbolises life while wearing white is usually meant for dead people or for negative situations. You should apply the same logic to every other gem, too. Nice headcannon though.

They all wear the same clothes, except Phos and Cinnabar who don't change out of the winter outfit, and Craig and Antarc who have white versions.
Standard outfit: the black blazer leotard thing
Summer outfit 1: the shirt with the shorts with suspenders
Summer outfit 2 (Red Beryl's later redesign): shirt with high waisted shorts
How can you be this dense.

Sort of a mixed bag.
On one hand, great cinematography. A cut above most shows. Vibrant and pretty in the more static scenes and shots.
On the other, choppy low framerate 3D and some janky ass looking scenes because of that.
2D would have looked wholly different, perhaps better in some situations, but the 3D also allowed them to do stuff that is really toilsome in 2D, such as complex camera movements, elaborate fight choreography with lots of shit going on at the same time, or stuff like the fractal/inkblot patterns when the moonies come like shit man imagine animating those by hand.

I wonder if the reincarnation thing is linked to whether the gems that knew them have come to terms with their death, or something along those lines. Morga and Goshe were partners and captured together, the other examples of gems we know are gone have partners that are still on Earth, and most of them still seem to be troubled about losing their partners.

I'm not sure how well the concept of having a small number of souls constantly being reincarnated into similar bodies in the gems works in the story as a whole, as you would think that Sensei would have noticed by now, raises the question of who the current characters were in their previous incarnations, and makes the problem of gems being ground to dust less of an issue if they're just eventually going to come back anyway. Then again, that might be why Sensei isn't as affected by gems getting captured as he maybe should be, if he knows that he's going to see them again after a few thousand years.

Still can't find the thing about Buddhism. Checked out Senseis real name the humans gave to him but nothing came up apart from the general setting of the plot itself and that Phos might be Maitreya. Theres already bits and pieces throughout the manga that hints towards this.
If you mean jizobosatsu however, thats just a little piece of flavor to add to the story and nothing more. Theres tons of deeper things throughout the story, such where the explaination of the virtues come from.
Come back if you have some actual deep knowledge to roast me and not the other boring shit.

Whats up with the Gender debate again? Rocks can't have genders. That they call themselves with male pronouns is simply a way to counterbalance their female appearance. Should they call themselves with female pronouns it means that they're more female like than male but since they're neutral, genderless dolls that won't ever happen. And besides all of what Ichikawa said, she also established in the story that they only refer to them as male because its their way of living and their understanding how to talk to each other, because thats the only way they know how to refer to each other with the exclusion of the context in what it actually means. So to be fair, with all of this considered, us refering to the gems as both he or she is simply wrong, taken out of context and autistic. So both this >>178093478 and this >>178093839 retard is just absolutely wrong.

By the way, every faggot that tries to defend calling the Gems with either male or female pronouns doesn't remember that Phos also refers to Ventricosus as a he. The characters obviously don't know better but we certainly do as readers. It makes way more sense calling gems Gembutts or Fags or any other genderneutral term because we understand this context and aren't retarded but they as mangacharacters do not.

Most of these buddhist themes are simply added flavor without any depth, no need to read in too deeply without any form of added information to understand it further.
Simply look at this fanart to have an example, you can alter certain things from the theme itself and make it a plot symbolic regarding christian martyrism while still making total sense. The plot itself isn't finished to wrap up its themes yet so people can play around with them and do whatever they see fit. We have to wait and see if Ichikawa is going for something deeper with this or if she simply enjoyed Morga and Goshe being in the story but with a twist.

The smaller things like the number references with 108, 28, 49 and the general aesthetic of the lunarians probably are just flavour, Sensei being dressed like a priest turns out to just be exactly what it is. I would be surprised if something like reincarnation, as a buddhist concept, doesn't end up being important to the story as a whole given how much the series likes to focus on the mortality of its characters. You could argue that it also ties in with the theme of metamorphosis that's been a pretty major part of the series so far.

>>178099558
Yeah, but the placement of these things for the sake of world building can still just be considered added fluff simply because Ichikawa took all of these concept to build the world, rather than to progress the plot. Of course you can tie it to everything in a greather thematic approach but it doesn't mean that Ichikawa intended this to be of any relation. Its rather the subtext of buddhism itself that contextualizes the plot.
To see what I mean, simply look at the whole general backstory with the Six Moons which is is simply just a implication of the Six Worlds in buddhism. In terms of what it actually means for the story its completly unrelated apart from the name, however you can read as much into it as you want to and it still makes sense simply because buddhist themes are all tied in together. This fact alone makes creating headcannon so much easier to do than any other story that doesn't relate towards already established themes.

Do you think the seven treasures thing is something that moves the plot forward or is something that is a consequence of the plot? I think it's better that the story itself isn't tied too closely to buddhist scripture or whatever, but the seven treasures aspect is what makes the question of "how much does buddhism tie into the story" more pertinent, since it's never mentioned by anyone in the series itself but we can say that it's likely that Phos will have some part be a red gem in the future, and events will have to be set up to accomodate that.

I knew this was coming. The Seven Treasure symbolism is actually pretty deep, Phos moves faster because of the legs, can fight because of his arms and hands and got smarter because of his head. That its linked to the Seven Treasures is very easy to do simply because they're all minerals and thus can serve as a metaphor for the seven sutra. That Phos doesn't act upon them its simply because he doesn't realize what they're actually doing simply because the plot still needs to get going.

However, as I mentioned back a few hours ago when that one dumb retard called me out from not having read any of the Ichikawa related interviews, even though they revealed nothing important. I already implied that the Seven Treasures serve as a metaphor that shouldn't be understood directly but rather metaphorically as they're the representation of the Seven Sutra is actually quite deep as in, you don't have to physically change in order to attain them, Phos already had all of these Seven Sutra and acted upon them in the first few chapters whenever something serious happened, but didn't represent them in a physical way. Phos became what he is now simply because they believed that change towards something else must happen. The Local Gem Ruins Everything meme exist because Phos felt forced to change, thus snowballing out from the initial grace and virtue. The story is not about someone attaining enlightenment but the exact opposite of that. The more Phos changed, the LESS Phos acted upon these virtues. I'm absolutely certain that Ichikawa is going to go all out on the "fuck buddhism" metaphor, which is already hinted by characters like Paddy, see attachment.

Its simplier to think of it this way, Phosphophyllite is one of the most special and rare Gems on this Planet. Any of the the other materials that are attached to Phos are literally less worth both physically in their prettyness and their value.

Dana (generosity) = Trying to give back things without wanting anything in return
Dharma (contemplation) = Phos love towards Sensei
Hrih (dignity) = Phos acts kind for everyone in need.
Apatrapya (respect for other people) = Phos being overly self confident and full of pride, even though nobody couldn't find work for her.
Prajna (wisdom) = All of these previously mentioned things combine into something more wholesome. That is the GenkiPhos as we know and love. Why else would you think that even when everyone shittalked Phos, they still care about them so deeply that they even go leaps and bounds to rescure and find them?

Now question yourself, how much does Phos act upon these virtues now? The Maitreya pose that Phos does can be seen as OVERconfidence due to the complete lack of virtue that Phos has now.

The seven treasures are:
>Suvarṇa (金, gold) -> Faith
>Rūpya (銀, silver) ->Perseverance
Self explanatory
>Vaiḍūrya (琉璃, aquamarine / lapis lazuli) ->Sense of shame
?? This would fit more with the gold
>Sphaṭika (頗梨, crystal) ->Avoidance of wrongdoing
Phos' kindness lol
>Musāragalva (硨磲, conch shell / white coral) ->Mindfulness
Phos becomes more mindful of his actions having consequences after the legs
>Lohita-muktikā (赤珠, ruby / red pearl)->Concentration
Fits well
>Aśmagarbha(瑪瑙, emerald / carnelian)->Wisdom
Not yet acquired but Pad is pretty wise
I don't get the Lapis. Am I using this wrong?
>>
>>178111993
Isn't the new meta that each addition is actually a SUBVERSION of a principle.
>Suvarṇa (金, gold) -> Faith
Phos had limitless faith in sensei, but lost it
>Rūpya (銀, silver) ->Perseverance
Antarc taught phos to push past her limits, but then she gave up and discarded her arms to try to shortcut her way to power
>Vaiḍūrya (琉璃, aquamarine / lapis lazuli) ->Sense of shame
she was very aware of her failures and limitations, but after being revived began to act with total recklessness
>Sphaṭika (頗梨, crystal) ->Avoidance of wrongdoing
I'm interpreting this as the pearl, and emerald/green jem as phos herself.
Up until coming back from the moon phos had never even considered harming another gem, deceiving them, or acting in a way that could threaten them. But she starts working for Achamea, with a plan to literally torture sensei into compliance.
>Musāragalva (硨磲, conch shell / white coral) ->Mindfulness
Phos was beginning to genuinely attempt to create the encyclopedia, paying careful attention to her surroundings and learning about the plants and animals on the island. But then she abandons that for a scheme to quickly find a solution for SHinsha's problems in the ocean.
>Lohita-muktikā (赤珠, ruby / red pearl)->Concentration
So far phos has been very focused, almost to a negative degree. Look for this quality to wane or be corrupted if/when she trades in another part of herself.
>Aśmagarbha(瑪瑙, emerald / carnelian)->Wisdom
For the entire story phos has been taking on more and more responsibility, and so far at least, she's been matching the task, getting better and better and figuring out the right thing to do.

So, following the pattern, phos will lose/give up another bodypart, and in the process lose her way and get distracted by the moonies. It's possible she might totally drift away from the moon plan and shift attention to something else, like the slugs. After that, there'll be a final test where her wisdom is challenged.

>>178112566
There's a few
Phos was wanting to fight for Sensei, which was obviously done out of love for him, but she was very naive about the prospects of what that actually entailed even with her new legs.
She loses her arms both because she feels she needs to get stronger, and because she's the only one who feels any sense of urgency about Cinnabar, which indirectly results in Antarc getting captured, but she does get over her fear of the lunarians in that moment despite having just gotten those new arms. That same sense of urgency is why she stops thinking about the encyclopedia, but it's also because she knows and probably everyone else knows that it's just a job to keep her busy rather than something that is expected to be useful. She sees that helping Cinnabar is more important than her doing something for the sake of doing it, even if she's still bummed out about Sensei taking the job away from her after losing her legs.

Phos started lying to the other gems as soon as she started becoming suspicious of Sensei, first to Rutile and later to Ghost.
There's this moment in particular where she stops focusing on helping Ghost out of curiosity about what Sensei is going to do, Phos seemed to act almost Lapis like with regards to curiosity over others when it came to Ghost.
>>
>>178112976
But she felt really bad about the ghost thing afterwards. Once she got the pearl eye she does practically the same thing, letting gems be taken to the moon to test sensei's reaction, and feels no guilt at all. She's acting with active malice now, still with good intentions, but intentionally TRYING to cause harm. Before she was, at worst, not attempting to prevent harm.

I brought up the encyclopedia because even though it didn't seem to have a solution to cinnabar's problem, it was the last time phos actually focused on the present, instead of looking to the future.
It's also phos's first big mistake. Who's the gem with the most knowledge of the plants and animals on the island? The one phos asked for help? The one with absolutely nothing better to do?
If phos hadn't abandoned the encyclopedia, THAT would have been the job cinnabar got, exploring the island with phos. The whole story would have been resolved if not for impatience and disregard for the present.
>>
>>178113231
>letting gems be taken to the moon to test sensei's reaction, and feels no guilt at all.
I wouldn't say she feels no guilt at all.

I feel like Phos is pretty much mostly a present facing person most of the time except for when she's thinking about Cinnabar, when she's trying to recover her past memories, and briefly when she's considering the future options with the lunarians. She's not really someone who has ever thought about the future consequences of her actions.

Cinnabar probably doesn't want to give up her night watch since that would be admitting that it was just a useless thing to distract her and give her an excuse to stay away from the other gems. Sharing the encyclopedia job seems like the obvious solution, but it seems Cinnabar had too much angst about her situation to consider it.

She seemed to respond well to phos when she was still trying, and remember that phos barely spent any time at all on it before getting slugged.
Phos never focusses on trying to solve her problems with what's currently on the table. She's constantly pushing forward hoping that some future clue or insight or action will open the path to success. She keeps throwing away the ability to create peace she already has for a hypothetically better one in the future.
>what if the answer's in the ocean?
>what if I got new arms?
>what if sensei is actually the bad guy?
>what if the lunarians aren't what they seem to be?
>what if switching sides will work?
Lots of what ifs, no definite answers. Each time she got a definite answer, but wasn't satisfied with it and went for another one. Eventually she's going to realize that some problems can't be solved with more knowledge. What has she actually accomplished so far? Nothing, maybe even a worsening of the situation. She's definitely headed for a crisis, where she starts thinking all of it was for nothing. So far her two main goals, find a job for Shinsha and bring Antarc back, have both failed utterly and completely. Shinsha hates her now, and Antarc is DEAD. Now she's stuck on the moon with a bunch of hostages and an extremely suspicious moondaddy is grooming her best friend for hardcore sex.
>>
>>178113231
>Cinnabar

>>178113716
Phos thinks she has to change and doesn't value herself at all, keeping an immediate goal in mind has been what has kept her going so far, whereas Cinnabar seems to want to be valued for what she is rather than wanting to change. I think there was a moment just before she lost her head where she was going to take things more slowly, but then Lapis happens and pushes her towards the goals she was going to put on hold.

>>178113231
If you really think that Cinnabar would have accepted that job, you didn't pay attention to his actions and behaviour.

Not really, this explaination only goes so far to tell about purely superficial and less impactful stuff >>178111993 while this one here >>178112566 goes lenghts to explain that there is a huge downside to it that does more harm then good and thats correct and a huge plotpoint, theres a reason Phos sanity has to deteriorate.
Both aren't absolutely correct though. For instance, Sense of Shame, or hrīḥ, is a mistranslation and can be translated to having dignity, self-respect, love for others or compassion for others. The only factor where you can apply sense of shame is that you can't really love others if you can't acknowledge yourself and again the negative aspects far outright the good ones here.
Note that the the Admirabilis and Lapis in the dream confirmed that Phos is a gem of prized western color and so >>178102570 explaination fits this perfectly. There is something in Buddhism called Sukhāvatī or Western Paradise in Buddhism that stem from the Amitābha teachings and thats exactly where those terms came up first.

So to summerize, Phos inner virtues were replaced with superficial ones that you can see from the outside. Whenever Phos gains something in superficial power like being seemingly more observant or stronger, the actual sacrifice to attain that simply is much worse. Remember all of Phos inclusions that still exist inside the Torso are the only literal contributing factor to this power.

While I don't exactly disagree with your analysis here I do think you're greatly overestimating how much the gems liked OGPhos. Leaps and bounds to rescue him means nothing when they'd literally do the same for any other gem in that situation. Phos was never special, nor particularly liked I'd dare say, the gems just dealed with him the way you'd deal with your bratty younger half-brother. He might be fun sometimes, and you don't want to see him hurt, but the little shit grinds on your gears and you can't stand being with him for too long. That's who Phos used to be.

To be completely honest, the impression I got from the first chapters is that Phos used to always cling to Sensei because he was always alone. He didn't even have a partner so he'd be drifting from place to place, taking turns pestering everyone, and laying down in the grass. It's actually kinda sad.

If what you say is the truth then Ichikawa really half assed it then. I thought the whole point of the Diamond arc was that they're usually pissing on Phos but in truth they really care about them deeper than maybe Phos realize fully, going so far that Phos even inspires the others to become even better gems.
The fact that the other Gems care so much about Phos became really hamfisted apparent later. So much in fact that it made it frustrated Phos. Thats also was the reason why Phos couldn't sleep. Nobody really cared what Phos did, they all loved him. So much that Phos couldn't feel the consequences of their actions anymore and thus feeling help and useless.
Wake me up when the damn plot finally is attempting to make a point about any of the themes.

The whole point of the Diamond arc was that Diamond himself cared a lot about Phos, while showing the strange morality the gems have.
>When Phos is "turned into a slug" nobody apart from Dia cares, because regardless of what happens to him, it doesn't matter so long as he isn't captured by the moonies.
>When Dia goes around, nobody gives a single shit that Phos turned into a slug, not even Cinnabar, and they passivly preferred him to stay that way. Apart from Cinnabar who actively wanted him to stay inside the shell. Yellow is actually the only character who reacts differently as far as I remember, but that's probably just because of super depression.
>When they find a solution they immediately jump to action, because they all have a basic bond of love to each other.

The point of the metamorphos arc was to show for the first time that the gems don't deal with issues.
They don't try to find a solution to Phos turning into a slug, and are content with how it is.
They don't try to find a way to deal with Dia's sibling inferiority complex because they're content with how it is.
They don't try to find a way to deal with Phos' very obvious PTSD and depression because they're content with how it is.
They don't try to find a solution to the moonie problem because they're fucking content with how it is, despite this issue ruining all of their lives and eventually killing every one of them.

The list goes on. Whether that's a side effect of being immortal and not having any sense of urgency, or just how the gems are, is something we don't know.

Again, I just thinking you're personally overestimating it but it's not like you're wrong when it comes to the end results. The gems all truly care for each other as family but if you look closely the way they handle emotions and relationships is all over the place. Most of their affections seem to be directed to their respective partners and that partner only (when the partnership turns permanent and lasts for a while at least). Partnership is seems to be idk gem marriage or some shit. As for the Diamond arc, I mostly agree with the other anons too. Something to keep in mind is that Dia seems to be the most emotional of the gems. Being a romantic is part of his theme, after all.

Overall, in all his life, Phos was just... there. They love him the way they love any other gem even if they aren't particularly close. But they also acted like he was special needs or something (oh, poor little Mohs 3, our baby brother can never do any job right, etc etc), and Phos got frustrated because they treated him the same as always. Like an incapable, and that failure is always expected of him. If he hadn't changed at that point, life would proceed as usual, like it did the several other times Phos fucked up. But Phos had already started changing.

I'd say some got inspired not by Phos but by other causes and circumstances at least until Phos comes back from the moon. Then he becomes "their hope" and gets a handful of gems inspired to deviate from the status quo.

But well, in any case I'd say both our interpretations are valid, and perhaps what Ichikawa intended could even fall somewhere in the middle. Something I really like about this manga is that there's just the right amount of vagueness for different viewpoints.

The vagueness is unintentional simply because they're linked with themes that already exist beyond the manga and thus leaving far more room to headcannon your own stuff in. Imagine this story but without the buddhist subtext, it becomes a hollow shell but also uninteresting to speculate about regardless of the glamorous approach of the manga.
On the other hand there probably would be way more gemdick posts then we usually and since people really like their simple design about them we still would still see lots of fanart coming out.
Once the manga is done, we most likely get what everyone wanted at least in a way or the other.

That's exactly why it needs to happen, anon. Imagine the sheer amount of second hand embarassing.

Isn't that simply because the Moonies have a thematic color which is white with a slight hint of beige/pink? In case of doubt it makes sense that these colors are assumed for borrowed moon clothes.

The slut one is Aechmea with his sexual innuendos. Cairn is a naive angry gem who wants to be helpful to the person who saved her life, you call her slut, but is Aechmea who's all huggs and caress towards Craig. All gems love to be caressed there's no help to it. I believe other gems (except the very depressed ones) would fall easily for that fucking bastard.
One of the big fuck ups of this arc is Phos losing such proactive gem.

>feels lonely and and decide to help
>gather an army so fast all by herself
>keeps Phos from talking too much to the earth gems
>saves time and effort for Aechmea

Aechmea gained an powerful ally.

Friendly reminder Karen did literally nothing wrong, also her dress is fabolous.

I hope you're not implying the whole Butterfly thing is Phos' fault. He still doesn't even have a clue of what happened for him to lose his reliable Cairngormie.

Why didn't they make their nails shine in the anime? It couldn't be that hard.

In a way, Cairn wouldn't be nearly as useful to Phos as he is being to Aechmea now. He always felt somewhat obliged and passive when it comes to Phos. As much as I hate what's going on between Butterfly and Aechmea, him going that far disregarding direct orders of the one he wanted to please was certainly a milestone in character growth.

...I still have hopes Cairngorm will eventually return to the gem's side.
