The only way the can control how the reader interprets something is through how it is presented in the original text. If they fail at that, they don't get a do over. They can't say you have to...
February 22, 2013 04:54 PM
Except it is not canon. It might be true, but that doesn't make it canon.
February 22, 2013 03:58 PM
Authors get to write the story. They don't get to control interpretation. They can say what they intend, but the text is canon. If something is not in the text, it is not canon.
February 22, 2013 01:57 PM
Actually, that isn't how it works. What happens on the pages in a story is canon and cannot be discounted even if it is inconsistent with the rest of the story or is bullshit. What the author says...
February 22, 2013 11:56 AM
You mean a character we haven't seen, much less seen in combat at all? What am I supposed to say about that? The author says I'm wrong, therefore I'm wrong? An author can say whatever the hell they...
February 21, 2013 03:48 PM
Wave controllers already have hand-to-hand combat techniques to go with their long-range attacks. At low levels I could see using a weapon until you learned enough to defend yourself without one, but...

It was in an author's note
I see that on the Tower of God wiki, but it doesn't have a citation and I can't remember seeing it mentioned in the series or an author's note.
It is probably...
February 20, 2013 09:35 PM
I took that to be a generational comment since Ha Jinsung has no standing with the Ha family given what he did.
Why would a wave controller use a weapon?
February 20, 2013 12:25 PM
In part 1 when she was trying to retrieve the Black March, Evan strongly dismissed the possibility of them getting into a conflict with Evankhell, the implication being that he could destroy all 6 of...
February 19, 2013 08:54 PM
Of course, if Yuri was to hypothetically rescue Baam, she wouldn't be facing the top members of FUG; she would be facing whoever happened to be around at the time which is likely Karaka, Ha Jinsung,...
February 18, 2013 11:47 PM
A certain sword stole his heart. (how can any woman compare to the sexiness of the Black March?) Or maybe he has unresolved issues with a certain woman that tried to kill him that are currently...
February 18, 2013 09:45 PM
Yuri might pass out due to blood loss when she first sees how Baam has powered up (in the looks department).
February 18, 2013 04:12 PM
As awesome as a war between FUG and Wolhaiksong might be, the order to watch Baam doesn't say anything about rescuing him which would start a war.
Now, if Lero-ro recognizes Baam and relates the...
February 18, 2013 02:01 PM
We'll almost certainly skip the 29th floor test. Of course, the fact that both Baam and team Tangsooyook need to take that test should cause issues to the fact that they are going to run into each...
February 17, 2013 09:14 PM
You mean the hot and powerful Evan "the Fast Ship" Edrok.
February 17, 2013 05:03 PM
Am I the only one who thinks that the reward you receive upon reaching the 134th floor is actually the test on the floor? i.e. You are offered your heart's desire and if you accept, you fail the test...
February 17, 2013 02:29 PM
It generally isn't a good idea to assume people who are willing to kidnap you and threaten the lives of your friends are going to be reasonable about pretty much anything. Ha Jinsung might kill them...
February 17, 2013 01:18 PM
Your claim that I'm not addressing your points inherently implies that I'm setting up straw men, ergo you are implying I'm committing logical fallacies.
I also answered your points. (I...
February 17, 2013 01:14 PM
I care about minor details. If an author is sloppy or doesn't care to keep track of things they deliberately introduced, they are likely to be sloppy about or not care to keep track of more important...
February 17, 2013 12:53 PM
They shouldn't be able to understand him either.
February 17, 2013 12:51 PM
I don't feel like going through the series and trying to figure out how much money Fukunaga made throughout the games (he never sacrificed himself to save others like Nao/Akiyama, so he was making...
February 17, 2013 12:45 PM
Fukunaga should still be in the black, even if he/she lost all of the money from the Bid Poker game.
February 17, 2013 12:33 PM
Baam shouldn't be able to understand anyone without his pocket to translate, and I would assume that would include written communication via the lighthouse, so that would cause some issues with this...
February 17, 2013 12:07 PM
Since the series finished the revival game, this thread gets a revival.
February 17, 2013 11:29 AM
The previous between arcs hiatus was something like 18 months? Since Kaitani took one during this arc, I doubt we get one that long again. My bet is a hiatus of at least 6 months.
As hyped as it...
February 16, 2013 09:50 PM
The last few chapters have been good, but we really need to see some indication of where the series is going to go for the short term in the next chapter.
February 16, 2013 07:37 PM
If Viole teams up with Xia Xia, I fully expect her to emerge as a romantic interest for Viole. Well, a romantic interest in the climb into his bed and violate him in his sleep sense.
February 16, 2013 05:32 PM
Why would Mike give up after finding out about the ref? The ref screwed him of the victory by not stopping the fight early one when he was beating the living shit out of Volg for long periods of time...
February 15, 2013 12:27 PM
Yeah, that's not just suggesting the possibility. That's making a claim and being condescending.
So you were making points that have absolutely no application to the matter at hand. That sounds...
February 14, 2013 08:37 PM
It seems that if you cut off all light to a human-titan, they eventually go into hibernation (the key is how long), but they clearly are not like the normal titans which normally power down...

Eren transformed while underground.
As I said, he would be thinking about whatever is preventing him from transforming. If it was true that he couldn't transform because he was inside (Eren did...
February 14, 2013 12:45 AM
If he was not ordered to transform, he'd be cursing his orders, not just thinking he is about to die.

It isn't about the elements, it is about the tone:
Violence in a wrapper of a desperate struggle to survive is adult.
Violence in a wrapper of lets collect points to revive our friends while...
February 13, 2013 08:20 PM
Basically, what I've been raging about.
February 13, 2013 06:45 PM
It came from the dozens of hints that the series dropped (thread on the subject) before shitting upon them in chapter 39.
February 13, 2013 06:16 PM
What a compelling rebuttal. I've completely changed my mind. /rolleyes
February 13, 2013 05:25 PM
Thank you. You're a gentleman and a scholar.
February 13, 2013 04:00 PM
Baam seducing all the Zahard princesses is part of FUG's plan to take Zahard down. Daughters turning their back on daddy for the bad boy is pretty standard, especially if the father forbids them to...
February 13, 2013 03:24 PM
Bad bad bad writing. Shame on you Isayama. Shame.
Its not that this development wasn't hinted at, it was. Extensively.
The problem is Ryner's thoughts on 39 (I can understand the flashback...
February 13, 2013 02:30 PM
Baam/Viole forming a Zahard Princess + Yeon + Black March harem is the preferable outcome, but if Baam has to be with one person, I'm choosing the Black March.
She's sexy, can take a human form...
February 13, 2013 02:27 PM
I've been told that the wait between 1002 and 1003 was the longest wait for a translation since people started translating the series. I'm not sure what was causing the issue for Mangastream, but...
February 13, 2013 02:10 PM
Gantz became a shonen series all the way back when Kei formed the team and started training them. At that point in time it stopped being a struggle for survival and more of a shonen "let's collect...
February 13, 2013 11:25 AM
Did literally all of the Gantzers on the ship forget that they had guns and could just kill whatever the hell the giant's name is in like 5 seconds?
February 10, 2013 09:04 PM
Give me an example from a test I haven't already rejected or explain how the position test on the second floor isn't extremely different than anything else we've seen in the series.
1) You have...
February 10, 2013 04:54 PM
That has had nothing to do with the test and is an extremely unique situation. Once you have a group formed, we have yet to see a reason why someone would gain from betraying them. (A team which has...
February 10, 2013 04:05 PM
I'm saying the series has said it but we haven't seen a single instance of when it has been advantageous to betray your team.
I said that there are things that could explain her wanting to get...
February 10, 2013 03:39 PM
Which rule is that? The one which we've seen people talk about without any actual basis?
If she wants to get away from him which she did, why would she do that? If you have a batshit crazy...
February 10, 2013 03:24 PM
I'm going to disagree.
We don't know why she hates and fears Baam so much and it is more than her just not wanting him to become independent of her. There are quite a few possible back stories...
February 10, 2013 03:19 PM
Are you saying that you think Baam is Rachel's illegitimate child?
February 10, 2013 02:13 PM
I don't get the whole "you have to betray people to climb the tower" thing. (Dan referenced it as to why he didn't want to climb the tower) We haven't seen a single instance with the possible...
