    Re: Tower of God Chapter 136 Discussion/137 Predictions

    Some thoughts on the chapter:

    Smoking man - he gives me the impression that he's a Great Teacher, or at least someone highly ranked in Gongbang. As for what they're talking about when the radio guy asks if he brought it, I'm going to take a wild guess and say that he's talking about Horyang. He could have said "did you bring HIM", but from what we know about the Gongbang guys, they would seem like the type of people who would consider Horyang to just be a thing.

    Good to see that SIU addressed the point about Koon not telling the others about him and Baam. Only trouble with that though is that he'll have to have a ridiculously good disguise during the tournament and he'll have to hope that his name isn't announced.

    Koon seems to underestimate his relationship with the S1 team quite significantly. Even though Koon and Hatsu didn't seem to get along in S1, they've clearly grown much closer for Hatsu to be so serious about killing Viole.

    That FUG fisherman is very suspicious. To make a top 10 regular like Novik shiver like that, could he possibly be a ranker? Or maybe a higher floor regular?

    From the way Viole is talking, it sounds like he has some sort of plan to break away from FUG, he's not just going to follow along with their plans. Also, could Viole have actually entered Ran's non-existent "not bothersome" category for him to not want to run away?

    The traveller clearly has some link to Gongbang if he is going to be important in this arc. An escaped experiment maybe?

    It's always a shame when a comentator keeps silence; and much more if he took the time to write for us. Something that less than the 2% of the members here use to do. And something that I like of Jammin.
    that sound a bit arrogant to say and personally it might not be what you were trying to say but it does feel like an insult be careful in how you put your words together it might back fire

    As for the mysterious character in the beginning, I presume that he's inside the "added" part that Koon mentioned.
    Spoiler show


    For the shadows that are chasing the traveler, I believe that they are the Gongbang patrols, mentioned by Reflejo. I mean, what's the point of mentioning them if Viole is not going to tangle with them somehow?

    Shadows:
    Spoiler show


    Reflejo's statement:
    Spoiler show


    I might be stating the obvious, but I just wanted to share my views.

    In what way does it sound like an insult?

    Maybe, or it could be the arena for the tournament. That thing most likely isn't there outside of the gongbang tournament, so it would make sense.

    Yeah I'd say they're the patrol guards, they don't seem to be human, so probably a product of some experiments. They do resemble a bull somewhat.

    I'm saying to Jammin: "thanks". And I have the rigth to desagree with him on some of his appreciations of ToG. You should or reread my post or revise your idea of being arrogant.

    It's always impressive to me how willing you are to state my opinions for me.

    Though it would be fair to say that I like part 1 better than part 2 I actually do like quite a few characters introduced in part 2. (Specifically Yoen, Miseng, Arkraptor, and both Wangan and Edin Dan have grown on me enormously).

    But what do I know about my own opinions? Clearly, you know more about them than I do.

    Your too kind.

    And if you expect silence from me...you shall be disappointed. It just means I'll be spending more time in the discussion threads for a little while.

    ---------- Post added at 05:09 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:04 PM ----------

    Tone it down people. This is a friendly discussion there is no need for anybody to get offended here. Not everybody agrees with my opinions and that's fine. mup, I don't think ukimix meant it that way. ukimix, mup thought you meant something you didn't. Nobody's being arrogant, everybody is just trying to do the right thing.

    Take it easy.

    It wasn't an insult and it wasn't a debate. He was just saying that although he disagrees with Jammin on certain points, he still enjoys reading about his thoughts. I don't see how that could be misunderstood to make him look arrogant.


    Just noticed that Wangnan isn't wearing his ring, and this seems to have been the case for quite a while now, weird considering how much he seems to value it.

    I would think that he's a regular, just probably at least as strong as Novik. It's said that only Guides are capable of interacting with regulars so easily. Allowing rankers to take tests would be rather absurd for the structure of the Tower. It looked like he took the 29th floor test with Viole, so I'm not sure if he could be from a higher floor. Besides, it would be unfair for a higher floor regular to participate in the 30th floor tournament, right?

    I think Ran wants to stick around to figure out what Viole is all about. He probably respects his strength too.

    Well he is part of FUG, and it's possible that they have someone in charge of the 29th floor which allowed them to sneak him onto Viole's team. FUG probably has links to Gongbang too, so it's not absurd to think that they could have pulled a few strings and got a ranker/higher floor regular in.

    I most look forward to is the old teams growth.

    And a question, are novik and ran on par with the new FUG squad?
    FUG could be sneaking in a ranker or hired an awesome regular to sandbag, but feel like either option will back fire somehow.

    My guess team FUG is made of strong regulars who are looking down on novik and ran. I think the regulars who are highly ranked are free agent types who haven't found a long lasting team, and those who stick to a team (like novik and ran) aren't as aggressively ranked against their peers. Excepting of course someone who has already been recognized by everybody, talking about Androssi with her princess title.

    "outside the tower" is what has me most interested about this fight besides FUG who are too mysterious and insane (attacking koon in front of baam) to be worth predicting. The gongbang exists in and outside the tower, which has all sorts of possibilities

    But how does it exist outside the tower too? Its another ambiguous statement...It extends to the outside? Its modeled after the gong bang fron the outside?..Its all very open ended for now i suppose.

    Information in this arc about what the tower and outside the tower really is would be great though.

    Certainly, but that's not what you did. You quoted 9 words out of context and decided for yourself what they meant.

    "It's nothing he hasn't said before. He already summed it up in his post, "something positive to say (besides Androssi and Anak appearing)." He's obssessed with the plot going through the S1 characters, and anything that prevents that is "contrived." I imagine the afterword saying the arc would focus on Team Viole was his last straw.

    That right there is you stating what I think about something and why, with wild inaccuracy I might add. I don't actually want everything to go entirely through the season 1's cast, regardless of what you say I want. And the stuff I think is contrived probably isn't what you think.
