Hyper Zoanoid

Hyper Zoanoid (16/20)



  1. It is like that, yes. But it can also mean the seat of government. So essentially it is referring to the physical centre of power in their society, whether that be a HQ or a parliament or a Palace. But the kanji used are 'inside' and 'centre', and often used to mean seat of government or capital city or middle or heart.
  2. I think that part could benefit from a translation check. If I may.... (the original is written in katakana to indicate alien language, but I'm writing in hiragana to aid translation) お前たち”人類”の最も忌むべき形態”殖装体” それは危険きわまる”ガイバー”だ 制御不能でありながら強大な戦闘力を備えたこの”殖装体”の出現は 我々にとって比類なき脅威となるだろう 我々は先の事件を”中央”に報告し指示を仰いだ 事態を重くみた”中央”審議会が下した結論は... プロジェクトの打ち切りとおまえたちの”根絶”だ すでに”中央”は天体破壊規模”オペレーション”を発動した 我々もぐずぐずしてはおれぬのだ さらばだアルカンフェル YOU "HUMANITY"-S MOST ABOMINABLE FORM "BIO-BOOSTED BODY" IS THE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS "GUYVER" A "BIO-BOOSTED BODY" BOTH OUT OF CONTROL AND WITH POWERFUL FIGHTING STRENGTH HAS ARISEN AND BECOME AN UNPARALLELED THREAT TO US WE REPORTED THE INITIAL INCIDENT TO "CENTRAL" AND ASKED FOR INSTRUCTIONS (Central is a place, like a capital) "CENTRAL" COUNCIL ASSESSED THE GRAVE CIRCUMSTANCES AND MADE THE DECISION... (council/ commission of inquiry) OF ENDING THE PROJECT AND "ERADICATING" YOU ALL ALREADY, "CENTRAL" HAVE INITIATED A PLANETARY DESTRUCTION SCALE "OPERATION" (celestial body, but planetary sounds better) WE CAN'T LINGER FAREWELL ALKANFEL I don't know why the scanlated manga says 'central federation', it gives the impression of an organisation separate from the Uranus, but the original manga doesn't really imply that.
  3. I can't read the other guy's posts, but it's important to note that pro life is also pro death. for any human to exist, they must also cause death of another lifeform. to be alive, we must eat. even plants are lifeforms, and infections will kill us unless we kill them. I would be concerned if a person got headlice and decided they refuse to kill those insects and just let them live and breed on their body. To value the life of a lifeform completely, you must value the death of all the other lifeforms that is required to keep it alive. regarding the death of wasps, etc. well, wasps can cause pain and even allergic reaction that could lead to death, ants can spread bacteria onto food surfaces, which can lead to death and so on. killing pestilence is pro life, because it safeguards the lives of humans. it's instinctive. when we say pro life, it is implied that we mean a specific life. These days it usually means valuing the life of undeveloped humans who can't survive on their own, over the life of adult human victims of rape. In those cases, a middle ground is required. if people want to stop a woman getting an abortion then those people should sign up to adopt the child when it is born and pay all her medical expenses, etc. Should we even be discussing these issues though?
  4. haven't looked at the original Japanese manga in a while, so i had a look. he does actually say he can digest the cells of all living things and copy exceptional traits from their genetic information. That much is clear. I think we need to be cautious in our assumptions though. it's likely he could absorb the cells of the relic or ark, but we can't say for sure whether it would have traditional genetics. Let's say that it does have genetics that aptom can read, it still wouldn't give him any exceptional abilities, because all of the weapon systems of the guyver and gigantic are coded from the control metal and nav sphere. we have no idea what a relic ship lifeform would be capable of without a nav sphere, maybe it only has basic metabolism functions, and a potential to accept programming and adapt it's form and function based on input data. but then, since that is something the creators seem to do habitually, I don't think that's special. human cells accept data and change their form when they are 'processed' so I don't see any reason to believe it would be at all special. edit: considering the Ark doesn't have a nav sphere, I guess we can assume some natural qualities of the lifeform. It is capable of surviving in a vacuum, it has levitation abilities, it is capable of collecting, storing and diverting massive quantities of energy, though this could be fully dependent on size. There's no guarantee whether aptom's cells could access any of this information though. The code could be incompatible/exotic, and also, we only have Aptom's own supposition to go on. Based on his monologue, I guess we can assume he has tried absorbing insects or birds or even trees. But I'm not sure we can assume that he is fully considering lifeforms that could have exotic biology. I just don't think we can take it as a given, even considering all this.
  5. Except Aptom is not a parasite, he is a Zoanoid. I'm not overthinking anything, I'm accepting what is shown in the manga and not making up wild propositions based on flights of fancy. This is the guyver science lab, not the fan fiction section.
  6. I think you need to be careful about assumptions. Aptom is really talking about zoanoids here, which is shown in the image. but we have never seen him absorb a spider and suddenly be able to spin silk as strong as steel. It's important to consider what aptom is; he is a zoanoid. he is a human with a genetic structure that can take portions of dna that are compatible with human. We don't know the exact process, but it has been shown that he can absorb human based systems. anything that is compatible with human. we could imagine that he works much like a virus, plugging in dna from other organisms, but a relic is not in any way designed to physically interface with humans. we don't even know if it uses dna or any related nucleic acid. we don't know if it has genes. to assume that he could absorb it just because it is alive, is a stretch too far. we surely know that the guyver can interface with different biological systems but the relic and by extension the ark, are not shown to have these qualities and may be rather exotic. edit: I think it's worth pointing out, the lifeform that made up the relic not the same as the guyver. the guyver was a predatory parasite. if the relic was like that, the bits of it that were scattered would have caused mayhem. the relic 'flesh' didn't do that though, and it never interfaced physically with the pilot, only through the nav spheres. edit 2: probably also a good idea to point out, the gigantic may be constructed from the relic cells,but it never interfaces with a human, it interfaces with the guyver. we have never seen a human call the gigantic without first being bioboosted and of course the guyver itself can interface with any creature because it is a dimensional parasite. so I felt it was important to point that out. the gigantic does not interface with human dna, it interfaces with the guyver parasite.
  7. Yes I also loved it. I am thinking it's very likely I'm going to watch this again.
  8. it's a fair comment, but that's a 14 year old comment!!
  9. The Ark is not a zoanoid though. It's made from a relic and probably doesn't have any human physiology that aptom could latch onto.
  10. it amounts to the same amount of story as one chapter in the compiled volumes, but it was 2 months chapter in shonen captain.
  11. I just feel a bit underwhelmed about superheroes I have never heard of. Then again, I hadn't really heard of Thor or Ironman before their movies came out... well maybe Ironman a little via spiderman comics my brother used to collect.. anyway, I liked those so I always give something a chance. Not too fussed about this, it makes me think of Dark city due to the presentation style and Isaac looks a but like Rufus Sewell. Not what I think of when I think 'Marvel' but who knows.
  12. okay, well this all sounds very political ^^ I only know the bits and pieces I've read on various wiki pages and what a lot of fans seem to be saying
  13. hmm.. some might argue that the reason the movies exist is Robert Downey Jr. XD and according to most sources I read, the x gene came about due to the celestials and their tinkering with deviants and eternals? I'm pretty sure I read that somewhere...
  14. They already changed so much in the MCU, it's clear they didn't want to copy the comics and in some cases it is very very different. Like Thanos not being in love with Death for example. I don't read the comics though so I don't know how much any of this really matters.... but what I do know is that Ego was a celestial in the MCU, and I do know that the Eternals form some basis of the origin of mutants. As far as I was concerned, the Eternals movie served the main purpose of being some kind of laying the ground for the X-men.
  15. how did you do that big picture like that? is it a feature in plex? wow, there are some old classics in there. is it your first time with them? if so, I'm jealous. Larz zahn, you know there is an edited version of Naruto named 'Naruto Kai'? it takes out all the filler so maybe you would enjoy it? For me, I don't really keep track of what I watch, not sure of how I could do that. I can say what I remember seeing recently though. rewatched a lot of Hunter x Hunter with my friend. rewatched dragon ball super as it was airing on tv. I have watched first season of Castlevania. I have watched all of Beastars. I watched a couple episodes of demon slayer and I might get into it. I rewatched all seasons of My Hero Academia and then watched latest season. I tried to watch JoJo and I tried One Punch, but I didn't enjoy them. One Punch felt too bleak. JoJo, I'm not sure why.
