Manga Mausoleum / Re: Should I read Episode 83?
« Last post by Johnstantine on November 19, 2014, 06:32:26 PM »
Like Walter said above, the Idea of Evil exists in the story regardless of episode 83. It is both shown and referenced throughout the series, including through this picture:



See, I love that moment. I can see why there would be much more weight to it if I had never read episode 83.

I had the (stupid)idea in one theory that maybe the boy was being projected by a nearby Griffith, kind of like those other spirits, Walt said "yea but casca can touch the boy, you can't touch the other spirits" I said "not true man, here, look at this, you can touch them"

and our minds = blown

I can't speak for everyone else, but my mind wasn't "blown" because the panel you referenced has no bearing on the argument you were making. While indeed you correctly referenced a panel showing what appears to be a spirit grazing the cheek of his loved one, I think you'll agree that it's fundamentally different from the interactions the boy has with his parents. Therefore, I didn't see the point in going further with that reasoning, since I think the facts are pretty self evident: the boy is not the same as the spirits that gather around Griffith. Those spirits are weightless and aren't affected by gravity. The boy is. Is that even necessary to point out?

Honestly I think your quarrell here is that i might have been right with Walter? Not to seem pretentious but after that post(maybe it was my very first post) I think the negative karma rolled in, and I wasn't sure what I did wrong, wondering if maybe the karma came from my modifying of my posts, but I think i get it now. That this forum, although im sure great people, intelligent people, is not too welcoming to newbies with their own thoughts

For the record, I never gave you negative karma. In fact, I've only ever given you +1 karma, because in general I like revisiting big speculations like these. Even when they get messy. I'm probably alone in that regard... Of course, there's no record of these things, so you'll have to take my word for that. But I haven't replied since several days ago because the last time I checked, you had removed several of the examples I would have replied to (the full moon being one of them). So, for my part, I was done.

That's great!

I haven't actually checked to see if Dark Horse has said anything about Gigantomakhia in a while. Turns out nope, nothing...  :sad:

Perhaps I need but simply have you guys warm up to me, or maybe we'll never get along who knows

The great thing about good internet forums like SKnet is that the only thing you need to do to stop digging a deeper hole for yourself is to stop digging.  If you just cut your losses here and put some quality effort into your next post then it'll be like this train wreck never happened.

It's too bad I can't post an image

But you can!

(with the text),

The text you'd most likely include may not be entirely accurate (such as Dark Horse, or...the Hawks :magni:), and most times the text, (such as in this case) isn't necessary, but you can include the proper translation in your post if you need to, and SK.net has the best translations around.

I know I corrected you on this, but I'd like to point out, there's nothing stopping you from screen capping, doing some editing, and uploading your images. Even someone with minimual MS Paint skills (like me) can do this. As a fan you should have these resources readily available to you.

Even still, if you don't want to go through that trouble, then at least take the time to get the episode, and, to maybe a lesser extent, the page numbers correct so that panels and examples can be seen. Most times this isn't an issue since topics are pretty easily find-able in the manga.

A little effort to support your claims goes a long way though.

Well, there's fading in and out, then there's teleporting.

Dude, why do you keep talking about teleportation? Do we see the boy beaming up across vast distances or something? No. No we don't. We see him appear and we see him disappear. Please stop embarrassing yourself. Oh and in the example I mentioned, the specters disappear from one location and appear at the next one right away as far as we can tell. Where's the distinction?

you're here thinking the kid just asks the spirits politely not to devour his mom. You're trying so hard not to be wrong I lol'd.

Uh huh, I'm the one who's trying soooo hard here! :slan:

And yes, that's exactly what I said! He's asking them very politely, "pretty please with a cherry on top"! Not just staring them down, which like I already told you is hardly evidence that he controls them, much like the Skull Knight did not control the Slug Count and Rochine when he stared them down until they left in volume 10.

It was a metaphor, is this all really going over your head? You dont think the God-Hand ranks a little higher than most demons, with the worship they get etc? You know what, dont think too hard on it, forget it.

A metaphor? Are you sure that's the correct figure of speech? As for the God Hand, why yes, they do actually "rank" higher (a lot higher) than apostles ("most demons"? What?), most definitely so. One could even say that they rule over them, like some kind of royalty! :carcus: However... wait for it... Nothing in the manga ever hinted in the slightest that the boy was related to the God Hand prior to the Incarnation. And like I told you before, there are many elements in the manga that directly contradict this strange notion you're clinging to.

So as a conclusion: no, the Demon Child didn't "rank" higher than apostles on an imaginary ranking board. There are just the members of the God Hand and the apostles, no "demi-members of the God Hand" that have a special "rank" because of their "God Hand genes".
