Guys, this chapter is fucking incredible for so many reasons.
WSJD - World Trigger
All urls found in this thread:
user you have my thanks. Let's see how many people find the stuff Osamu does.
Y U U M A
DOES HIS UNPREDICTABILITY AND MADNESS KNOW NO BOUNDS?
EVERY FUCKING BATTLE WITH THIS GUY, SOMETHING NEW
uses scorpion to delay the trion loss
next scene with the slut he isn't using it anymore
Can you IMAGINE the hatesex between Rokuro and Katori?
It would be so intense.
he was using bagworm/scorpion to attack so he had to stop the bandage because of the 2 trigger limit border has.
He can't attack with it and close his wounds at the same time. The scorpion bandage is a stopgap.
Active trigger limit.
what did you think would happen
Though at a certain close range her sniping should become less accurate.
The cover is gorgeous.
Keep going OP, you're doing God's work.
This is funny. I like this.
The cover is great, seeing Replica makes me sad though.
tries to distract and break Osamu mentally
hahaha, like that is going to work
Katori is...SUCH a bitch.
Finally he starts to sweat.
Osamu subtly preparing the trap while she talks is the best part, I didn´t notice the trion cubes at the bottom of the page at first.
After this battle she will fail for him, Osamu harem will be one made of angry girls that had wrong opinions about him when they first met.
Oh yeah, and it's convenient how much Asteroid and Spider look
I didn't notice until now that he's switched in the bottom panel to setup for this attack
Aaagh! So great!
Osamu pulling all of the stops. Brutal as fuck
Osamu first kill without support was pretty great.
Holy fuck, Mikumo, what a badass.
Wew lad, Osamu becoming that teammate that gets shit done while you're not looking.
At least she didn't lose her head
IT'S FUCKING OVER, MAN
Ey, this guy is not bad at all, he is fighting pretty well with one arm against a Yuma with improved mobility.
This means Osamu scored two points, one on his own.
What a machine.
Can you imagine the femdom hatesex you would get from Katori?
What a fucking turnaround! The whole fucking battle just turned with this chapter. It was always in Tamakoma-2's favour, but this was a windfal.
Katori is going to take one of these two out next chapter, somehow. Wouldn't end the chapter like this otherwise.
So anyway, yeah, fucking amazing.
What a chapter.
God I love Osamu wrecking people left and right. He had Katori squad in the palm of his hand the entire time.
Surprised Izumi is best Izumi
In another series there would be at least one doujin of Osamu having a threesome with Katori and Kitora, it would start as hatesex, but then Osamu would take the lead. Sadly this will never happen.
Katori is pissed because the only teammate she likes is sorry and feels bad
I like it.
Kitora: "These wires aren't a method to score points, they're way of helping your team-mates"
Osamu immediately uses the wires to score points
Maybe not. Her last menacing moment might not mean anything at all.
katori's the one who is going to be assraped but will be ignored by Yuma for the next chapter as they deal with Teruya first by having a Trion foursome with her.
mark my word.
Teruya a qt. I hope she accomplishes something.
NEW SERIES Takuan and Batsu's Daily Demon Diary supforums.com
To be fair his success was largely due to his teammates. Chika incapacitated the ace of an enemy team and Yuuma assisted his second point. He had it a lot easier like this.
implying a paralegic can do anything on her own without any support.
Those bottom 2 panels
kek, realized he's so fucked
Just gets up
No victory panel of him grinning or thinking shit
Surprised, but that makes it so much better
Those short blades look pretty cool desu
Katori just dodging
heh, does she not know what is a shield
that chapter title
Oh fuck yes.
Well, that's what happens when you're in Tamakoma territory
no time for that, gotta think about how to murder the next guy
I don't care how weak he is. This guy is based as hell
So, 8-0-0, 8-0-1 or 8-0-2? I don't think Katori will get anything done, Yuuma might bail out due to Trion loss and I can see Teruya getting Chika.
literally forces his victim into his death bed
Trion bodies naturally act to seal wounds and leaks over time. The bandage is just there to stop him from losing all his trion in the meantime.
this match is to demonstrate T-2 resolve and set them up for a rematch with Azuma
There's something funny about how Yuuma just slaps her hand off.
It's all thanks to the red wire trick
If Nino still call them shit after this I will be mad.
Chika finally gets over her mental block and takes down Teruya herself with Egret and Tamakoma 2 is set for A ranks.
This technique wouldn't work at all against Azuma. Against an ibis sniper you can't stay still for long or you'll get snipped through a building. They also can't have Chika sit in one spot against people with long range. This won't work against Azuma, Ninomiya or Kageura squad.
On the battlefield don't hesitate, just act. It's blow out or not at this point, who gives a shit about points?
He's good,too. If he still had his other arm he could of blocked Osamu's attack,too. Katori's mistake is what caused his loss here.
So who is going to be the most tsundere about Osamu's performance: Hyuse, Kikuchihara, or Ninomiya?
rematch with Azuma
Nah, T-2 has nothing to prove to Azuma. And Azuma Squad might be knocked into Mid B since Suzunari looks to have some staying power in the top.
5-0-1. Teruya gets Chika and hides until time limit.
He's good,too. If he still had his other arm he could of blocked Osamu's attack,too.
Nah. He could have blocked it as he is now using a Shield, but he didn't know it was coming.
Pretty sure Azuma squad has a match atm. so they might be gaining points after this.
Ninomiya definitely won't. He'll say they only got the blow out they did because of Captain Katori's lack of leadership skills and Kanzaki's unwillingness to tack decisive action until it was too late and finally, no enemy sniper to keep Chika under pressure made it effectively a handicap match for Replica squad. If you want a Ninomiya complement they'll have to impress him in a match where their opponents are just as into this as they are.
OSAMU BIN MIKUMO STRIKES AGAIN
Suzunari would have to have scored 0 points to drop back to Mid-B. Or Azuma would have to score way above their average of 2.25
mad-tier creativeness and adaptation powers
god-tier keikaku balancing on the precog tier
could probably do EXTERMINATUS on the Neighbourhood alone
Literally "plz ban or afk" team. And it will only get stronger with Hyuse
It's crazy to think that a while ago Osamu couldn't even beat a marmod
a while ago
That was over a hundred chapters ago
Unless you're talking about the passage of time in the story. It's been what, two or three months?
Raygust in sword mode
Shoot him now, Kitora.
Of course, but I gotta give him some credit for bodying the most able bodied member of Katori Squad all by himself.
He could just deploy normal shield to block that
POST YFW OSAMU WAS THE MVP IN THIS BATTLE
I want punished Osamu going back to the past to kill his former self, like Archer did it. I don´t like Shirou, but the the trope about your future self being so done that has to go back in time to kill you is good.
Maybe that monstrous neighbor that mortally wounded Yuma was actually his future self coming back to stop him before the black trigger consumed his body
Kitora will still take credit for all of Osamu's acomplishments and insist that he must worship the ground she stand on.
That's Kitora-sama to you
must worship the ground she stand on
I can see this going in a very strange direction.
I like it.
Thanks for the dump, Vizanon.
It will never happen, but I love this fucked up stuff. That said, I hope that the BT user that almost killed Yuma will appear at some point, he was a mercenary, right?
Slightly apprehensive that all this focus on Katori could mean she might still pull out a win over Osamu and Yuma. She hasn't shown anything ace-like yet...
If she takes the two of them out at the same time she's taken out, that'd leave the follow-up chapter a 1v1 between Chika and Teruya.
It looks like next chapter is her backstory, so I'm thinking she and Yuma will take each other out.
I just love this 1st panel. The threads activating, forming hooks, expanding, changing colours.
And I love how it almost looks like Alektor and it's birds.
Is that Katori's leg lying there in the 2nd panel?
she hasn't shown anything ace-like yet
user she went toe to toe with Yuma. If that doesn't count as ace-like i don't know what'll in you book.
For the time being "scores" are:
aye it seems to be.
I love those small details.
What is that? Kills/ deaths/ assists?
As a military organization, is it really rational to make squads only have 3 or 4 people and rely exclusively on one intel operator?
Real militaries value team work of course, but in much larger groups and they expect you to be able to team up with more than 2 people.
It just seems inefficient.
It's a shame that all the wires look the same shade of dark gray in the Friday scans.
expecting reality from works of fiction
are you disappointed when you find out orcs, elves and Santa Claus aren't real?
In many ways the series is contrived and inconvenient, period.
It's really one of those things you have to accept. At its foundation, even something as simple as the existence of trion and the means to use it being Border-exclusive is so goddamn absurd and would never happen in reality.
Border agents can work in large numbers. We saw that during the Galopoula attacks. Also there are HQ operators that do greater management outside of personal operators.
Raygust in sword mode
Thruster her now, Osamu.
Nah, she would probably say that she was right into teaching Osamu spider and his usage was "not bad".
dopey loser four eyes
The salt buildup in this chapter is too good. They need to find a way to squeeze as much of it out of her as possible before they kill her.
He uses scorpion so that he doesn't bail out before even reaching where Osamu is.
It gives him a few more minutes.
Border is a private organization. It's structur is quasi military but it is still private.
3 or 4 people, with full radar, half a dozen weapons strapped on and quite easily able to take out any normal weaponry you can imagine
It makes sense to have operators for smaller squads in this scenario. Though only if you have to do small time operations.
As seen in the invasion arcs, squad works together and share any info anyone obtains.
Don't reply to him
He's been posting the exact same thing for a couple threads now.
They can work together though, the 3-4 member teams are just platoons or whatever.
Thing is that Trigger users are much more powerful and efficient than normal soldiers, they can also do a lot of shit that would make your head hurt. So having someone command let's say 12 of them at the same time is just too much.
Still it's obvious that the main reason is not making it convoluted for the reader
user has a point though
I'd be surprised if she didn't say, "Hey I was the one who taught him that"
Thanks for the chapter user.
I've been looking forward to this.
The same can be said for the others, they benefit from Osamu wires.
oh for sure
I'm just saying, in fact that's the whole point
They really should keep firing. Raygust is tough, but it'll break after enough punishment. Inukai was on the verge of beating Osamu by just keeping up the machine gun fire until the shield breaks.
Yuma and Mikumo doing combat as a tag team
It's about time.
Hope the next chapter has more sick combos like this.
She might not say it, but she'll certainly think it. Kitora wants glory but doesn't want people to know that she wants glory.
The problem with that is Chika. If they get into position to take some shots at Osamu, it means that they're exposed to Chika's sniper fire.
Basically both Katori's and Kakizaki's units fucked up royally by not splitting someone off to take out Chika when they encountered resistance in trying to reach her. That's left them fighting Osamu and Yuma, while Chika has a line of fire to support them. Forcing them to either constantly be moving, or constantly be in cover, to avoid being hit by Chika.
She'll be sure to let Karasuma know when she runs into him. That ought to be worth a few compliments from her precious sempai
It's not so unrealistic. Even in real life soldiers tend to be grouped into 3-4 member fireteams, which are then grouped into 8 to 12 member squads. Small teams where everyone fulfils a different role are more practical for modern urban warfare and you can group them together if you need numbers. There's also the fact that having a small number of people in combat simplifies things for the mangaka.
The bizarre aspect is that the teams are able to choose their own make-ups. In real life they don't let every soldier equip themselves exclusively in grenade launchers and the grenade launcher accessories.
Going by the precedent of every other Osamu Kitora interaction, Osamu will get a compliment from someone, Kitora will get annoyed, then Osamu will explain Kitora's role. She's got a bit too much pride to mention it herself.
It's a shame Osamu and Kitora started off on the wrong foot. Osamu's constant desire to tell the truth and congratulate other people goes alone perfectly with Kitora's desire to be congratulated.
Well she does respect/like him to some degree, considering him a rival/someone she can't stop being concerned over.
She is regularly annoyed with him and would likely be even if they started on a good foot. She actually did him a favor at the start of the series after realizing he wasn't just some showoff brazen punk (vouched for him when he had to meet with Border execs).
Most teenagers in border wouldn´t be in border if they were told by organization which trigger they have to use. I mean, it sound like tons of fun choosing your own style, with this system you get things like Arafune team or the one man army that is able to stay in the upper rank of the B-class being the only guy in his team.
Hell, with some luck you can ask for your dream one, like Yoneya´s spear. You could even ask for a flore trigger and maybe they would make one.
With weapons that can do the damage triggers do, you don't need groups that large and it gets hard to organize
Teruya/Chika double KO
Yuma bail out by Trion loss, not by Katori
Osamu kills Katori
A rivalry is formed! 143 chapters into the series!
Let the hatesex commence!
Savage move, Osamu.
Overall the KDA ratio in rank wars are
Funny how Katori was so busy trying to distract him that she didn't even notice a line of little Asteroid cubes marching across the street.
I hope this means a rivalry is formed, 143 chapters into the series. Now for glorious hatesex doujins.
Kuga should patch that wound up now, I'm sure he can take her out with one trigger with Osamu's support.
I'd argue osamu gets assists for both of yuma's kills this match due to the wires, and you could probably make a case for chika getting 3 assists in the first match when she blew that one team out of the house into the welcoming embrace of yuma's scorpion.
I'd argue osamu gets assists for both of yuma's kills this match due to the wires
I will give him kakizaki for Osamu but tunroe or whatever his name was is a chika assist
B-rank 16(3) killed by Yuma
B-rank 17(3) killed by Yuma (Assist by chika)
Tally up: Yuma six kills and Chika three assists
Tsu killed by Yuma
Hisato killed by Yuma (Assist by Chika)
Arafune Kills Chika
Arafune killed by Yuma (Trion Loss)
Suwa is killed by Osamu (Assist by Yuma)
Tally up: Yuma 3 Kills and one assist, Chika one assist plus one death and Osamu one kill
Sniper qt killed by Yuma
Ko killed by Yuma (Assist by Chika)
Osamu is killed by Nasu
Tally up Yuma 2 kills, Chika one assist and Osamu one death
Osamu is killed by GODzuma
Yuma kills Okudera
Yuma is killed by Ninomiya
Tally up Yuma gains 1 kill well also a death and Osamu gains another death
Tunroe is killed by Yuma (Assist Chika)
Kakizaki is killed by Yuma (Assist Osamu)
Wakamaru is killed by Osamu
Roko is killed by Osamu (Assist Yuma)
Tally up (so far) Yuma gains 2 kills and an assist, Chika gets another assist, Osamu gains 2 kills as well as an assist
He can just patch it up and get shield ready. Osamu can do the honours.
user it's Tomoe. And in match five you can count Osamu and Chika for the assists.
Kakizaki and Tomoe had problems to navigate due to wires.
Kakizaki lost an arm due to Chika.
Wakamura was already hurt due to Yuma.
Arm and shit.
Roko lost an arm to Chika.
In this round all of T2 got a piece of the defeated ones.
Yeah, Spider kinda makes this buff/debuff zone so it counts as assist for me.
The operator doesn't look sorry, she looks like she's had enough of this fiasco. Like she's wasting her time and wants to go home where she doesn't have to deal with their shit.
Didn't know you were giving only 1 assist per kill; I was assuming the first out on kakizaki was an assist to both, as was the second on katori (already missing on arm due to a chika LB). Yuma also landed a decent cut onto rokuro, but I don't think it was significant enough to factor into him going down.
Really depends on whether you give an assist to a significant contribution, or any contribution at all; I was leaning towards the latter. Still, that's a pretty neat chart/timeline you typed up, so thanks for that, user.
Should've used meteora, Kakizaki. I'm surprised that meteora doesn't get more use in general, although maybe the trion consumption is too high.
Roko and Wakamura are the same person, Miura is the second guy down on Katori who lost an arm early on.
Tfw to many characters and you messed up
Perhaps it may shoot as fast? Or it doesn't do enough piercing damage so he feared it would fail? I don't think we've seen anyone killed directly by meteora so far.
For some reason i always thought only the explosion itself would deal damage.
Since the blast, and the flying rabble is physical and would have troube to deal damage.
Osamu, Taichi, and Kumagai all get blown up in the rainstorm battle. I'd also like to point out that Kumagai is a criminally underrated WT girl.
I like Teddy. She seems cuddly.
Man, that rank wars post-season captains meeting is going to be fun.
Osamu and Taichi
That was tomahawk so not really
and Kuma literally self killed
I hope she gets Asteroided in the middle of her flashback.
And then i
I would love it.
Kakizaki will be on great terms with Osamu
Katori becomes uncontrollably salty whenever she sees his face
That chapter cannot come fast enough
But will her backstory make her seem worse or better? From what I'm reading it seems like Katori thinks Osamu's motivation is shit. She had a better motivation to make the away team and gave up on it, therefore Osamu shouldn't try to make it because he has flimsy determination
Those I noticed.
What I didn't catch until everyone pointed them out were the cubes already in position in the subsequent pages.
Anime OST when?
someone posted a link to it
or parts of it sometimes ago. Should be still up in the archives if not let me know i'll search the link out of my hard drive.
It was posted as its own thread, and naturally nobody seemed aware of it
Some self retrospect and emotional drama will not be enough to overcome yuma and osamu.
The real issue is how chika will handle her opponent.
Let her come close
Let her come closer
Use shield+ibis with the barrel sticking out
Procceed to blast the shit out of your surroundings
If T2 wants to be really cruel and deny points to either team, then Yuma can do what Sasamori tried to do to him and pin Katori down while Osamu blows both of them to bits.
Getting her act together might help her pull something off.
Assault the opponent with Raygust
Shoot when they're busy fending off Raygust
He really seems to like this strategy for his solo confrontations.
Because if he catches them with his Raygust they can't escape. It's useful for a guy who can't aim for shit despite being a shooter.
Maneuvering and being accurate an Ibis when her opponent is so close doesn't seem doable, and she doesn't have anything to gain by blowing more buildings up
What she should do is go full Shield and buy time for her team. I don't think there's anything Teruya can do that can break a Shield generated by Chika
Plus you can't defend yourself once you're caught, since thinning out the shield in an attempt to block the Asteroid will earn you a Raygust to your face.
I don't think you can even counter that move if you're not a shooter or a Scorpion user. He probably could've beaten Inukai with it.
I never thought to look, personally. The way some people were talking I had already assumed we'd never get it. Which would have been awful, considering the OST was the best part of the anime.
Personally I liked the voicework more than the soundtrack
tfw Katori may never be voiced
If Chika thinks to do that then she's pretty unstoppable. The problem with Chika is that there's a whole bunch of What If tactics where she's totally broken, but in the present day she lacks the experience and the resolve to implement them effectively.
Raygust is heavy and slow. Even Thruster seems to have a lead up time. If you're able to block the first attack you'll be able to retaliate before Osamu can pull off another. Use anchor mode, or use two shields for full guard, then retaliate after he's used his attacks. Basically, keep a cool head, guard, then attack when he's open.
Kazama and Wakamura both tried to fight back and ended up getting killed for it. Inukai just kept up his shield and avoided all damage.
Osamu didn't use sword mode vs Inukai and Inukai wasn't tripped
I can't wait to see Tamakoma-2 when they get their custom A rank triggers
He could have done exactly the same thing if it was the sword or if he was tripped. Block the first attack, block the follow up attack, then shoot back. Being on the floor might be embarrassing but it doesn't disable your guns.
Getting tripped would disorient the opponent and stop their movement
Wot. Have you read any of the manga? Rank wars is just a training game.
In actual battle each squad has 1 dedicated operator helping them in live combat with radar, maps, nightvision, linking hearing, etc.. and above them are the HQ operators who relay commands and tell the squads what enemy to engage or what place to defend and it's usually multiple squads working together.
Basically nothing about Border makes sense in the context of the real world, unless they're seriously abusing the ability to erase memories. Remember how Border can erase memories, right?
Then again, considering that Ashihara has his own zodiac, and comments like how Karasawa was part of an "evil organization" before working at Border, this probably isn't quite the real world. If we take "evil organization" to mean something on the lines of Shocker, then maybe crazy secret societies aren't so uncommon in this setting.
Yeah I have no idea how Border manages to make so much money, even with a few sponsors.
It is bizarre. Why did Ashihara choose to make Border a non-profit company funded by donations? What's the point? Why can't it just be a government agency? It makes so much more sense.
They can't get shit down, if the government was in charge then We wouldn't even have grasshopper
Tax evasion purposes.
how Karasawa was part of an "evil organization" before working at Border
Where'd he say that? He jokes a lot, so I don't know
part of the 303 Q&A? I haven't read all of that yet.
Maybe he is planning an arc where the government seizes control of Border
That would make things more complicated.
A "private company" of a sort is a lot safer than a government.
Well it might be more down to earth than your usual shonens but it's still fantasy. I think the evil organization thing is just a reference to his previous manga though.
Probably he doesn't want to complicate the manga with inter "earthling" conflict. Same with the secret around the trigger technology. Having espionnage and others treacherous plot is done to death in that kind of setting. And he may feel a lot less patriot than the GATE dude for example.
Hello, honoured ancestor. What was life like in the 1800s?
Make it a intergovernmental organisation, like NATO or CERN. Say that countless countries came together to try and protect the Earth from Neighbours, rather than a group of five guys came together and got funding from one city.
Thanks for the chapter! Author comments?
Ashihara brand bullshit, then. You can't take that man seriously!
First, he would have to know a shit ton about others countries politics to make it believable, and second it's not gonna play well with jump and its audience. He is making a manga for young japanese mainly.
I've seen too many Kamen Rider shows, so it's natural for me to assume that each city has it's own unique and idiosyncratic shadow organization.
I don't mean it has to be a bit part of the story, just use it as an explanation for where Border gets its money from.
But that can't be enough by itself. If you say there are international agents, the readers are gonna want to see them, as well as maybe others cities and border.
As far as world building goes, you can't just say something and get it done (or you will have complaints like yours in a neverending circle).
Exactly the same thing is true with the current situation. If you say that Border is funded by private organisations, people are going to want to know who's funding it and why. If you say that trion is a secret to everyone but companies that make deals with Border, people are going to want to know what they're doing with it. On top of that we're left wondering what the rest of the world is doing anyway.
And with yuiga for example, and all the shenanigans around the border communication with the media, there is a decent chance to see something come out of it at one point or another.
As for the rest of the planet, think as much as you want, the story just doesn't want to go there.
I'm surprised we are already seeing Osamu do such advanced work with spider. It's going to be interesting to see how he builds upon his tricks from here
I imagine most of he captains like samu at this point. The only ones who don't are Miwa, Ninomiya, and Katori
There are still a lot of captains who haven't interacted with Osamu.
This might be the most advanced Spider work we see in quite a long time. Most teams have some kind of long range ability, so Osamu won't be able to sit still and set up his spider webs at his own pace. This is just showing what he can do with them at their best, before he gets forced to improvise and adapt to someone else's plan.
Even though I love shitting on the WT adaptation at every opportunity I get, I still really want to see this battle animated some day
Even if it's Toei
Not to mention that it's ranked low on the Trigger Tier list, so hardly anyone bothered to pick it up let alone come up with different ways to use it.
He'll probably stay hidden until he's sure that he's out of the snipers' range, then set up once the opposing operators are too distracted with something else to notice that he's popped back out on radar.
Hell, I don't think he's ever personally talked to any of the captains of the teams he's faced after the match.
I've waited two years for this
Pretty sure you're right. Yuma seems to keep in touch, but Osamu doesn't interact with anyone very much. The closest thing Osamu has to a friend is Kikuchihara.
Osamu probably needed to talk to GODzuma after their match.
Does anyone know what Hyuse's name is supposed to be? We know that everyone else from Aftokrator (and seemingly everyone from the other Neighbour countries) has a Greek name, but I can't find any Greek word that sounds like Hyūsu.
I need Katori to be voiced by Yukari Tamura. She'd make the perfect bitch voice
Osamu's mom seems to have another side to her personality we'll never likely to see
Apparently it's supposed to be Hus (hoos), which means hog or sow, probably something to do with how he was left behind (sacrificed).
I'd say it has more to do with Hyuse being the equivalent of an Aftokrator commoner by birth, while the rest are apparently the equivalent of Aftrokrator nobles by birth.
He's been hanging out with Tachikawa squad and Arashiyama squad lately. It'll be funny if Yuiga starts treating Osamu like a close friend.
Actually I'm more thinking they just ditch her and kuga saves his trion so they can 3 vs 1 Teruya.
Would be better if Osamu tells her "Katori, I just mined that place with asteroid earlier" before going blowing her up or making her look somewhere else for Kuga to deliver the finishing blow.
Panel 1: Osamu, this is what I used to believe, and I've become disillusioned. Aren't you also disillusioned?
Panels 2 & 3: Katori, just because you're depressed, it doesn't mean that I'm depressed.
user, any kind of Organizations that's under public control wouldn't work half as efficient as Border.
Except maybe the military. But then again, the problem of child soldiers would arise and it would be brought to death by public.
Ashihara is uncle
Well one child is blessed with probably one of the best uncles ever.
He will treat the kid like everyone does with Konami, it will be great.
Don't worry anons, Osamu wrecking shit was one time accident. Tomorrow everything will return to norm.
Fuck you, the reign of Osamu "The Spider" Mikomu has just started. It will last 3 decades and go into the history books as the most dominant and great era ever. Buildings, places, cities and even countries will be named after him.
With Hyuse around it would be anything but normal especially if he starts exhibiting Kuga tier creative use of Border trigger.
There's something funny about how Yuuma just slaps her hand off.
If T2 wants to be really cruel and deny points to either team....
Regardless of fighting, if it looks like Yuma is about to run out of trion, then Osamu should shoot Yuma up. The killing blow goes to Osamu (but doesn't add a ranking point) and not Sasamori. If Yuma runs out of trion while Teruya is hiding, then Sasamori gets the credit and gets a ranking point for his team. But denying a point in that way would be like Ninomiya's ruthless style.
They will improbe spider and create new triggers to support it because of him.
Since Katori doesn't move well, they should quickly chop her gun up so she doesn't use it, then run off to kill Teruya before she gets Chika. That would give max bitterness to Katori as being ignored now as an opponent.
But as points go, they should finish off Katori for the one point, then have Chika switch to bagworm to evade Teruya as Chika moves toward Osamu and Yuma. Chika then grabs onto Yuma for the rest of the match and transfers trion into Yuma so that he never runs out. She transferred trion to Osamu before.
Kakizaki. Anyway you might as well let him have the point. His team is too far behind for it to matter.
All the teams that had a clash with T2 suddenly got better
Just you wait and see user, Kaki-Squad will soon be in top B-rank.
New BBF stuff got translated
Thans a bunch user.
If it weren't so gay i would offer you some hugs. Have a happy loli instead
He really should.
I bet Godzuma is secretly part of his fanclub too, seeing that he was impressed with the match he was commentating.
It does fit the sounds. I'm not entirely sure it fits the theme. Everyone else's names translate as something to do with their personality or their function, but his is just "pig". He's repeatedly called a dog and his trigger is called "fireflies" or "shield of butterflies" but he's actually called "pig"?
It also doesn't fit T2's theme. Everyone in T2 has some connection to the sky: The first kanji in "Kuga" (空) means "sky", the first kanji in "Amatori" (雨) means "rain" and the second kanji in Mikumo (雲) means "cloud". I guess Shiori doesn't fit this theme either.
Oh well, maybe dirty commoners don't get to have fitting names.
So he will fit in when pigs fly?
He did get sweaty when Osamu was godsniped. Yuiga probably just likes the fact that there's someone who can't bully him.
the second kanji in Mikumo (雲) means "cloud"
Huh, I was reading a manga the other day that used a cloud and a spider in a weird visual pun
I'm still waiting for someone in the manga to give him an embarrassing nickname based off of this. The coincidence in his trigger choice is too good to pass up
Damn it Wakamura, it's a wire. You don't have to run away from it.
It's startling to have a bunch of flashy red wires zip inches away from your face
It's also startling to get shot at or see your fiends explode. If you want to be a solider you need balls of steel.
The salt buildup
It's like her tits are full of salt at this point
Yeah, he should've stood still so I could find out whether or not Spider can pierce a Trion body
Osamu attempting to complete the Traversing Terrain Training
Given the way he maneuvers himself, I bet he flunked that module too.
From what we saw when Yuma enlisted, it's weekly training. Osamu probably sucked at all of it. He also probably stopped going after he made B-rank between how awkward it'd be to be a B-rank in basic training, and how much other shit he has going on. Now he does all his training in private.
Osamu's A-rank trigger shoots reinforced spiders and we see some Just Cause-esque grappling hook shenanigans
Wait for based Tachikawa.
He will do it.
Wouldn't have made a difference.
Doesn't back up
Osamu still thrusters him
Trips him over wire
It was a pretty clever trap.
Anime was great in the aspect of adding "fillerish" scenes with Yuiga, Izumi and Arashiyama team during that match.
You could see that they were seriously rooting for Osamu.
And now we saw how fucking hyped Izumi is seeing Spider God in action. I bet Yuiga jumped on bed/sofa from excitement when Osamu got double kill.
But IMHO he should bro it up with Ko and Nasu. They could get along nicely and training/competitive scenes could be used to flesh out new tactics/powers Osamu uses. Like the double sided shooting with Raygust attack. That's seriously good move as you have to be really good/have fuckton of trion to block it.
Then Ko would give Osamu some Raygust training, Nasu some much needed IMO Viper/advanced shooter training and then go to Yuiga to complete his "quest" and start composite bullet training.
I can already imagine next opponent
NINOMIYA creating weak but big shield to block barrage of asteroids only to be killed by single gimlet hidden between them.
The SaltMaker Spider God strikes again!
But remember that he was quite agile and fast during Afto invasion. Maybe not at the beginning but during 1st Rabbit fight and onwards he was seriously GOTTA GO FAST tier. Almost.
Do you guys think Hyuse will be a Gunner or a Shooter?
Shooter. Lamprys is so goddamn versatile that a gun trigger would be a massive step down for Hyuse.
The main reason people use gun triggers is that they're easier to control than cube trigger. You can attack accurately and reliably at reasonably long range, without having to worry about floating your cubes into the right positions before you attack. Hyuse is already used to controlling thousands of floating trion shards. His fighting style is all about shaping and positioning these shards to best exploit the current situation, so he's already the perfect shooter.
I suspect he'll be a Viper specialist with the same reprogramming ability as Izumi and Nasu. He might add in Lead Bullet to recreate the disabling abilities of Lamprys.
I can see Shooter w/ scorpion.
At least Smash Borders is keeping the VAs together with the characters
So I'm listening to the soundtrack and were all these tracks actually used? I feel like I haven't heard half these tracks.
I think it will be mid-range oriented All Rounder. Mostly attacking from distance with Vipers but can scorpion his way out of tough situation.
Tfw you don't have a smartphone and can't play it
I hate my life sometimes.
thats my thoughts so i went back to watching the anime.(yeah yeah its bad whatever) and they do show up in scenes
Except the voice actors. And a few scenes.
And sometimes it's comedy gold
Some of these tracks must just be underutilized then which is a shame because a lot of these underutilized tracks sound great
I've listened to half the OST so far and all of those are used.
My favorite track is the one that's used when Chika teaches Yuma how to ride a bike for the first time.
I don't know why that particular one stuck in my head.
Am I the only one that's been noticing the honorifics throughout this most recent battle?
amatori-san (teruya), amatori-chan (izumi)
Is there some kind of perceived familiarity with tamakoma due to the plot events?
Osamu "The Spider" Mikomu
The Clone Saga of Osamu is going to be so devastating.
Osamu's black trigger literally give him Spider-Man powers
I usually look for them since viz doesn't keep them and there's some fun stuff like Miwa's "Jin.......san". Or Nino's "Tachikawa no yarou". But I don't see what you mean by familiarity here? Those seem pretty standard.
In the latest chapter, Teruya went from Amatori-san to Kuga-kun in the same sentence, which strikes me as odd. I'm pretty sure Katori's operator used Mikumo-kun(as every character seems to do) but then switched to -san for Teruya.
Maybe I'm just reading too deeply into the situation, but it seems like the other squads take Tamakoma less seriously, or something.
Izumi and Tokieda both helped train Osamu, so they might be treating him with familiarity. Izumi is generally laid back, and also he helped rescue Chika during the invasion, so he might be treating Chika with familiarity as well. No idea why no-one treats Yuma with any respect. Maybe he just gives off that kind of impression.
I don't see it. Granted I'm not an expert but I think she's older than the boys so -kun is fine. As for chika and teruya they get san because -kun for girls is too teacher/boss-like and they are not close enough or she's not blunt enough to drop honorifics all together.
Osamu actually dies in the middle of the series giving birth to a black trigger, something something similar to Lubbock´s weapon in Akame ga Kill, but stronger.
Osamu dies in a chapter titled "Osamu Mikumo Final"
There's even an "Osamu Mikumo Epilogue" of just people mourning
A RL year passes
A chapter is titled "Osamu 1"
Osamu returns not as a human but as a human-trigger amalgamation
still wear glasses
Yeah, I can understand the people that have interacted with Osamu/Yuma before.But for the operators of other squads, having never even spoken to them, using -kun seems a little disrespectful.
You're right about the ages; I didn't realize Osamu was only 15 and that he's the same age as Yuma, must just be the height differences messing with me after all this time. That being said, it doesn't really explain why Teruya herself doesn't remain consistent with -chan for Chika.
I've always taken it that -san is used to show a certain respect to people you haven't had prior interactions with, and opposite to that, using kun/chan with people you haven't met before generally implies some kind of superiority.
Isn't it because they are still in middle school ? They are younger than most people.
He wouldn't be able to make one
Q. 193: It seems that Black Triggers are left by users with superior trion abilities, but how many of the current agents might be able to leave one?
Even for superior users luck is involved a little in whether they can leave behind a Black Trigger or not (so there aren’t many people willing to become Black Triggers voluntarily), but it is said that if it’s people with Side Effects creating Black Triggers the success rate rises quite a lot.
I've been busy and just visited Sup Forums now and what's with WT the only WSJD still active ?
Just wait till it turns out he's just sweating out his superior trion and that the glasses are in reality his SE.
Whoever uses his BT gains instantly megane.
A chapter is titled "Osamu 1"
I would rather see it like either Zalgo-like tittle with strange symbols or ?????. Missing No. like.
SnS has big spoiler threads and nobody cares that much about the smaller series.
People are discussing the chapter so it is still active
-san is just your normal standard respect. but -kun or chan for that matter doesn't have to be disrespectful. Sure you can look down on someone but you can use it with someone usually younger than you normally too although obviously chan is more cutesy and it doesn't fit all situations or people.
Remotely controlled Spider with piercing wires that can be manipulated at will like Cross Tail
One question. If gunner is simplified class to use trion bullets, are they considered as another class altogether or actually shooter as well. If it's the former, is there any 1st gunner as well then ?
That one man squad only has a gunner. He could be the one.
It's another class. It is literally shown at like 3rd page of BBF where they explain profile pages etc.
Thanks. I havent had time to read bbf carefully and read whatever i can hear. Thanks for explaining user
It could even be someone already introduced. Like how Konami was the #3 attacker all along
We do know Konami is strong and belong to Border's strongest squad so I am not surprised with the revelation.
But then, she is 3rd from scorpion points or that senkuu of her ?
Probably Kogetsu. Sogetsu should be more recent
It says that is not likely, but the chances are not zero.
I doubt she even has points on Sogetsu since it's Tamakoma custom trigger.
Sogetsu doesn't seem particularly unusual. It's just an axe form of Kogetsu, so it should be fine to use in the rank wars. Connector is Konami's big experimental trigger.
Am I the only one who thinks Karasuma was the worst mentor for Osamu? Surely he can't be proud about Osamu's growth considering he didn't really teach him much. He must feel like shit after watching this match.
Karasuma's the one that's been teaching all the basics for being a Shooter, all the extra shit everyone else has taught him would be useless with out Karasuma
It was explained so many times - Karasuma gave the best possible training for Osamu at the time.
He had to rise his base stats as much as possible in a short amount of time. Because of that he could learn other things faster and use it in a more efficient manner.
He told him that his most powerful weapon was keikaku and it was proven right in Nasu/Suwa/Murakami match. Then Osamu got greedy and wanted to learn advanced techniques to be like Nasu and it fucked him over just like Karasuma said.
And it's because of him that Osamu got to know Izumi and Arashiyama agreed to train him during this busy time.
But yeah, Karasuma is the best teacher for talented guys since he can amp it up to 200%.
Osamu has talent but lacks the basics.
Besides Osamu is agent for less than a half year (I kinda remember it being 3 moths even?) and he got to the like lower mid-B rank level skill.
Even Kitora said he could catch up in ONLY 2 years.
So yeah, he can't suddenly gain A-rank skills from Karasuma, he needs to train for a long time. Just like current best players - they trained and got good.
Just like current best players
Or they were born a god.
GODzuma doesn't count.
Makes sense. I wonder if Karasuma would take a step back now that Osamu is networking with other shooters?
Another possible reason people address Yuma with -kun is that they don't know him well, so they assume he's younger than he is.
Remember he still looks like he's 11 due to the condition of his body. I don't think someone in their mid to late teens or older using -kun for an 11 year old would be particularly unusual.
What I expect from Karasuma now is giving Osamu some tips for new usages of spider (and general keikaku training), see if his exercises can be now upgraded for gaining more innate mobility (so eventually he can use his own wires), maybe introducing him to the Trapper guy to learn about trap triggers and, in the best scenario, introducing him to Ko and Nasu. At the same time I would like it if Reiji also helped him as he offered before. And maybe a few sparring matches with Konami to get experience against battle-maniacs.
He needs to experience it to improve his keikaku against such unpredictable enemies.
Godzuma doesn't count
How can you denie god?
I meant it in "start weak and git gud" way.
He was born perfect.
start weak and git gud
This is for scrubs. Like Tachikawa or some similar noob.
Jesus, how poor are you dude?
I am a bit more comfortable with WT now. Sure psyren or belzeebub situation could occur still, but it feels like we can have a long comfy ride for a while. Please jump please
Not that user.
Some people dislike so called comfortable smartphone. I am those people
Has Izumi as mentor, literally best shooter in Border
He should totally get training from Nasu who is much inferior
How many times do you think Katori was personally defeated by Ninomiya?
Nasu seems to be better at programming bullets. And he has Izumi waiting to teach him composite bullets.
He should get all the info/training he can get. Izumi is also a A-rank so he has many responsibilities and duties.
Besides he's not a sick-moe girl who turns into super fighter dominator.
Then Osamu got greedy and wanted to learn advanced techniques to be like Nasu and it fucked him over just like Karasuma said.
It really didn't.
Osamu's fuck up in the Azuma/Nino/Kageura match was standing still for a matter of seconds. Now you can say "Oh he stood still because he was looking to attack when he should have been running" but that's pure hindsight. At the time he had four occupied enemies in front of him in an enclosed space, it was the perfect situations for him to deal a little damage. He's smart, but he's not psychic. He's not going to immediately think "Oh, the little Azumalings showed themselves because Azuma himself is ready to back them up by shooting through walls."
Honestly if you are up against Azuma you should immediately think he'll shoot anything to get to you. Maybe he should have researched Azuma more.
what is an emulator
The commentators said it's not something that Azuma normally does
More info's always good and I get that it's cuter if he interacts with a girl but but Nasu being better at programming seems baseless to me.
I think it's ideal that Osamu gets all of his shooter training from Izumi, but Izumi isn't Osamu's personal mentor and has a lot more on his plate, especially if it comes to teaching basics, not even composite bullets. You don't need college professors to middle schoolers algebra; Nasu's also extremely talented in her own right while still on Osamu's level, and she has the benefit of facing him before.
He's really not the best. Konami is pretty bad as well. She got really, really lucky that Yuma was already trained and just needed a bit of experience.
I know people will defend Karasuma by saying something like "Osamu needs to learn the fundamentals before he can do anything fancy" and that's mostly true, but it doesn't excuse the fact that we've never seen Karasuma give even the tiniest of shits about Osamu's training. His advice thus far has been "keep doing what you're doing" and "if you want to learn, talk to people who know what they're talking about." In contrast we've seen Reiji thinking and talking to others about the best way to help Chika.
I agree with that. I was just saying I doubt Nasu being better than Izumi.
Yeah, both of Ninomiya's goons knew what was going on. They fight against Azuma all the time though.
I'm not the guy that said that, but I think what he was getting at is that Nasu is really skilled at using the different types of bullets relative to her rank. I also don't think he was saying Nasu was better overall, but that in terms of programming/making patterns out of viper/tomahawk bullets. She might be better than Izumi is in that regard since that's clearly her specialty and I don't know if we've seen Izumi fight enough (if at all?) to make a judgment based off of that.
This is why I think Karasuma was the worst option to be a mentor. If anything Reji should have taken over once Osamu learned the basics. Hopefully in the future he will. Its not like Karasuma as anything more to teach at this point.
I know we're talking about programming bullets. I mentioned it before, I just didn't write it again. Anyway like you said we can't fully prove anything.
It's just that thing of dedicated mentors not really being a thing. For the most part A-Rank agents just give advice and small scale guidance.
Osamu doesn't really need a mentor, he needs fights. He's been having pretty good ideas from the very beginning, even before he knew half of the functions of his own triggers he was using them intelligently, he just lacks the battle experience to use them effectively.
Drop Osamu into the solo wars for a while. Let him get a few thousand battles under his belt and he'll be a changed man.
I'd like to see some of his mock fights with Yuiga, but this time with his Spider trigger.
He needs to come up with new ways to trick opponents who become accustomed to those traps.
I can't imagine Spider would be overly useful in a 1v1, especially if they know he's going to be setting up. It works well in rank wars because there's a much greater risk of dying by rushing in alone, and the casters even mentioned that by withdrawing from the fight to talk strats they give him more time to set up.
Unless his Deus Ex Trip wire doesn't need other wires pulling their attention, in which case all bets are off.
A few thousand battles with who? He's B-Rank which is going to keep C-Ranks away from challenging him, so he would need to set up some people to go against him
Can they see his rank? Don't the C-rank solo booths only display points and trigger? I guess people will be able to work it out from the fact he has 4000 something points, unless he uses a trigger he doesn't have that many points with. He might have less than 4000 with raygust, seeing as he bypassed the normal C-rank process.
I'm sure there are some lower bracket of B-rank that would love a chance to bully Osamu. There are loads of people like the Three Idiots who are willing to pick on weak people to slowly build up points.
Shooting through a building like that is something difficult that Azuma rarely does according to the commentators. Azuma probably has hundreds of hours of video to go through, and I doubt there's a highlights reel labeled "Crazy shit Azuma can do".
So I don't blame Osamu for not knowing that Azuma could pull off such a difficult shot. There's probably a lot of stuff that Azuma can do, that Osamu simply wouldn't come across in the time he had to research his opponent. Especially with the other things he had going on.
Raw number 463, damn it. Can't even read it.
Is there a rule against team killing to prevent points?
Say Yuma sets up a suicide with Katori and Osamu finishes them both off. Would that prevent the Yuma point going to Kakizaki, and then they'd just be down a survival point?
I'm sure there are some lower bracket of B-rank that would love a chance to bully Osamu.
Even better I'm sure Izumi would love to find some people to fight with Osamu.
Okay Osamu I found you an opponent who's willing to go 100 rounds with you
W-who would that be
I called Katori and told her you were down in the solo rank wars booth calling her a stupid lazy bitch. The call ended with the sound of what I assume was her phone being crushed in her hand. Good luck!
Survival is a flat 2 points and isn't determined by how many people remain on the team
TL user here. I wasn't planning on posting this but oh well. This was posted on 2ch by an ID that has given reliable spoilers in the past. It's spoilers for the next chapter.
Next week is mostly Katori's flashback.
She lived next door to her Operator Hana so they were on pretty good terms with each other.
The first invasion caused buildings and the surrounding to be completely destroyed.
The one that came to save Katori was Hana.
It seems that her hand was injured quite severely because of this.
There seems to be some speculation from other sites that this is why Hana wears gloves.
Hana's family helped Katori and her family....or something like that.
Katori thought about her past self where she never hid and faced her opponents head on when she talked to Osamu about dreams and trying hard.
Katori: 「Don't give me that expression like you're the main character of all of this…!!」
There's also unconfirmed talk about World Trigger getting the cover for the issue after the next issue for the third anniversary. (WJ26)
Next week is mostly Katori's flashback.
God I hope not.
There's also unconfirmed talk about World Trigger getting the cover for the issue after the next issue for the third anniversary. (WJ26)
I'm down for that, though.
It's probably going to be like with Kakizaki and have it mostly be her flashback and end on a big moment.
Shit. Let me fix a line.
Hana's family helped Katori and her family....or something like that.
Katori's family was saved but Hana's family was...Katori gets agitated after thinking about the past.
I'd never blame anyone who loses to Azuma. I just think he should have at least been on guard more like these two.
a highlights reel labeled "Crazy shit Azuma can do".
They should make one of these. I imagine it'd be sold out immediately.
It's starting to sound like she took on too much of a burden and burned herself out. I'm guessing Hana tried to join Border as an agent but had poor trion aptitude, so Katori became the agent in her place.
I'm trying not to get my hopes up but I'd really like that cover.
So that's why Katori and all her pals are deep into the Kido faction. It sounds more and more like some family member of hana's has been abducted and/or killed.
They want to make Meeden great again
Katori and Somei seem to both be farther in Kido's faction than Wakamura and Miura, so this would make sense
Katori: 「Don't give me that expression like you're the main character of all of this…!!」
She doesn't even have respect for the 4th wall, cunt.
Iirc when Yuma fought with Midorikawa he had to press on a black square thingy to view official agents as well, so yes they would know Osamu is an official agent.
Also official agents automatically start at 4000 points with any main Trigger they pick up later. Osamu got promoted to B-Rank as a Raygust user with 4k points, then he picked up Asteroid and since he's already an official agent he started with 4k on Asteroid as well.
Isn't Nino the best Shooter?
Best Asteroid Shooter. Izumi is the best all around shooter
oh shit she is just a lesbian
Or just friends
you mean like lesbian friends?
Points don't always reflect ability; as mentioned in the previous thread Nasu's points are higher than her actual ability because she gets most of the kills from her team and Kuma's are less than she should be. Nino probably ranks higher than Izumi due to Chuuni beard taking all the kills while Nino is free to get his own kills.
Izumi invented composite bullets and he taught Nino stuff.
A world trigger cover? How long has it been since we've gotten one of those?
About a year
this sounds interesting. the fact that this can be real is cool.
I was wondering about that too, considering how judicious Katori was about amputating limbs.
Welp. We immortal threads now.
I would not mind either.
Thank you Ashihara.
Is there a rule against team killing to prevent points?
I don't think it's been specifically addressed, but Kumagai was defeated when her own meteor shots blew up in her face after Murakami launched his shield at her. She technically blew herself up, but the point went to Murakami.
So I would guess any self inflicted damage that is the result of an enemy action would probably be counted as a point for your enemy. Really, it would kind of reduce the point of the rule about needing to be a certain distance from an enemy before bailing out if your allies could just take you out instead to bypass the rule.
Is there a rule against team killing to prevent points?
I wonder if Yuma could've mercy killed Chika in the last match as an alternative to bailing out. It wasn't an option at the time because he was occupied, but I can't see why it wouldn't be allowed.
Finally Megane-kun is cool again. When was the last time he was cool I can't even remember
Why do people shit on Karasuma so much? He was with Osamu for a month and did fairly well, especially in laying down basic knowledge that Osamu needed.
Because he can get girls and thus people here can't identify with him.
I didn't realize just how insane Azuma was in that match until I reread the manga and rewatched that battle
Sniping through smoke and dust clouds
And no one came anywhere near getting to him. Truly MotM
I'm factonless all the way
The way it works is that we have one thread when spoilers come out that last 1-3 days and then another thread when the vizanon dumps the viz scans that lasts for a similar amount of time.
It's better this way. No generals or tripfags mucking things up, discussion tends to be focused on the latest chapter as a rule, and threads die when they need to die.
Man, seeing it laid out visually really reminds you how many more people Kido faction has.
And with only 2 threads a week. We get mostly the same amount of posters with each thread.
WT has a dedicated but low-key fanbase, which is nice. Really, the reason the threads lasting so long are because:
1. We're at a high point in the manga with Mikumo finally stepping up. It's been a long time building up to this payoff.
2. BBF getting scanned and translated naturally invites discussion and commentary.
3. Staggered replies from people who are just tuning in or posters who have questions or comments about pages makes these threads last longer than usual.
That sort of guard comes from experience that Osamu simply doesn't have. "If Azuma's team is attacking, it means Azuma's in position to shoot any of us" is something that it'd be difficult to conclude from watching videos. It's almost guaranteed there will be times where that isn't the case.
If Azuma hadn't been in position, and hadn't sniped Osamu through the walls, Osamu would have been in a great position. He'd have been shooting down a corridor with no cover, at two different teams. Either someone fails to block his shots because they're busy fighting and Osamu gets a point, or someone tries to counter attack Osamu and gets cut down by the other team resulting in Osamu being protected, or everyone initially guards, and one team ends up pincered between Osamu and the other team.
But Azuma was in position, and he wasn't having any of that shit. He likely knew what was coming as soon as Osamu didn't run away, and took out Osamu ASAP to prevent it.
Is it wrong if I want Katori to fall for Osamu?
I guess she already has Blonde Osamu but still.
I bet she would come after him with a salt trigger.
I hope it would lead to a hatesex
Makes you wonder why Touma has a higher skill stat. Even Narasaka who has higher Range somehow has less skill than Touma.
Nothing a Osamus RAYGUST with continuous THRUSTER can't fix
But at the same time imagine the salt levels if Hana became very friendly with Osamu.
God, Katori is such a great designed character.
When he shot Suwa I think.
A large part of it is that Azuma has loads more experience, I'm sure. Also keep in mind that the skill totals can veil full potential because it really depends on how the scores interact with each other on the whole.
Azuma's abilities are reflected in his composite scores in Defense/Support, Skill, Range, and Special Tactics. While Touma and Narasaka can beat him in particular areas, Azuma just has a wealth of techniques and experience to draw from that make him this extremely dominant if he cares to flex himself.
Number 34 on the soundtrack is so damn good. I've been waiting ever sense the debut of the filler qt.
You don't earn points in team battles though.
Well user, we have never seen Izumi doing something similar complex to that.
Only altering flight trajectories to confuse the afto neighbour. Nasu on the other hand went batshit insane the two times we saw her fighting.
Not doubting Izumi could probably do something similar but right now Nasu seems superior in the programming sector.
I don't think that can be taught though, it was said that Nasu is a shooter prodigy because she doesn't use previously prepared schemes but actually calculates the path of each bullet individually.
Don't give me that expression like you're the main character of all of this…!!
Ashihara don't you go breaking the 4th wall on me.
I wouldn't be able to stop admiring you madman.
And probably laughing.
I don't think that can be taught though
Not to that degree certainly.
But a bit that helps can always be taught. And the rest is
i hate to say this a lot of training.
Does Chika with an unmodded Lightning basically have a hitscan weapon?
there's no chair under Osamu
Oh god this is just torture. Those two absolutely wonderful specimen of the female gender can't be that light on his poor thighs
Nasu legs kinda covers it, but Osamu supports himself with his RAYGUST there.
So once a Shooter's bullets are released, are they able to swap out their Trigger or would doing that fizzle out the traveling bullets?
I guess you need to keep the trigger equipped to alter bullet's behavior (like Osamu did in the last chapter when he attacked glasses with asteroid bullets planted beforehand). I think if bullets are programmed and released you don't have to keep using trigger.
World Trigger getting cover and colour spread week after next week is by the same leak so probably legit.
Technically, we have no idea where Izumi sits in the rankings. I'd be amazed if he's not Number 2 Shooter, but we don't actually know anything about his solo points.
To be fair, something like that is a waste of time, effort and Trion.
I want to see Osamu defeating someone or something nobody expected him to defeat.
Probably won't happen, but I can dream.
So Katori's haughtiness is nothing but projecting her own negative feelings on others. She really should quit border if she doesn't want to be there beyond living out her friend's dream.
I don't know, user. People have been speculating that Kitora has a personal reason to fight for quite a while now. This spoiler still doesn't explain why Kitora (and Wakamura) talked in such generalities before the match.
Why are you bringing that up?
Oh, no reason. Just thought it might provide some interesting background to them
Lots of people have similar stories here in Border
If they were really referring to Hana's family/hands, why conceal that? Were they aware the audience was reading the meeting? Were they trying to set-up for a dramatic moment later on?
Wakamura realizes he stirred shit up
Tries to play it over
It's not like it would be uncommon.
Makes me want to have Katori also be part of Mikumo's harem so two women who likes him are anagrams of each other.
I think he is trying to imply something to Katori without saying it, but she just brushes it off.
They're the same character, user. Have you ever seen them in the same room at the same time?
What's a main character expression look like? Is it just silent judgement?
Karoti (spelled 'Karochi')
Man, can't think of anything else that sounds nice. Other than a robotic clone of Kitora named KITOR-4 or something. But this isn't Index.
You can always just call them Ai and Yoko so there is less confusion
In this series, yes. Maybe combined with a duck-face.
Katori beholds the face of the MC's
It's a condescending double duckface combo
One time for every occasion she's switched positions.
So at least twice, maybe?
potential early spoilers
Does this mean we might be back to Thursday scans again? Trying not to get my hopes up but I want to believe
Add some puns there too to their faces
Osamu: I even gave you a HANDicap of being alone here Katori...
Yuuma: Your wires really came in HANDY Osamu.
Osamu: Yeah, this turned out to be quite a LEGit strategy after all.
Yuuma: Geee Osamu, it almost looked like everyone danced in the palm on of your HAND.
No. Not for a while. I've been exploring other potential options but we will see if they pan out. I hate using the Korean scans. As for why this was out so early, WT spoilers have come out as early as Tuesday in the past. The spoiler provider retired a short while ago but it seems that he's back from the dead for the third anniversary.
She's been in the top bracket of B-rank for quite a long time, so she's probably lost to Ninomiya two or three times per season.
lost to Nino two or three times per season
I always thought she was one of the teams that kept running from Nino and kage after getting her ass full from them.
She probably was, but Ninomiya and Kageura squad are still scoring about three points per match. Even with everyone trying to run and hide, Nino and Kage squad are managing to wipe out an entire enemy team each round.
It's probably the case that the teams try to fight them but then lose their ace and retreat.
OK, let's do some combinatorics. There are eight teams in the top bracket. There are 56 three team combinations (8 choose 3) and 70 four team combinations (8 choose 4). There are 21 three team combinations (7 choose 2) and 35 four team combinations (7 choose 3) that include Katori squad, and only 6 (6 choose 1) three team or 15 (6 choose 2) four team combinations that include Katori and Ninomiya squad. That means they'll be against Ninomiya squad about 30% of the time in three man matches and about 40% of the time in four man matches. Assuming three and four man matches are equally likely, Katori squad will be fighting Ninomiya 21 times out of 56, exactly 37.5% of the time.
Do we know how many matches they have per season? Six, at least?
Sounds like something straight out of the Fun Facts segment at the end of each episode
and Kill la Kill
You know what else was in fun facts?
There's only one 4 person team in top B the rest are 3 person teams
When you keep losing, gratuitous kindness will eventually become a burden
What did she mean by this? Osamu hasn't been losing, he lost once. Nor has he received gratuitous kindness, Izumi told him that he couldn't help unless he killed Yuiga 100 times.
Is she basing her judgements on the ten minute lecture Arashiyama gave him?
I mean four team battles, like Mikumo vs Ninomiya vs Kagura vs Azuma.
Be super serious
Receive tons of help
Still don't get shit done
It's like he begged for suffering. With a great bright neon sign.
Personal failure user, they won the matches but every time Osamu went out to score points and just ended up giving them away to other teams.
Izumi also might not have actually taught him how to do composite bullets, but he still took time out of his schedule to talk to him and to watch over those 150 matches he did against Yuiga.
People giving Osamu their time is a kindness. Though this is something that makes more sense in Japanese culture.
200. Also, I'm not sure he watched all 200. Maybe he just watched the first 50 and then walked away somewhere, only to return on the last 50.
The 200 took place over a couple of days I'm pretty sure
All we know for sure is that he watched the first ten rounds and was there for the last one. I doubt he bothered to watch them all, there are video games to play after all.
Damn it. Oh well, keep up the great work user.
Wasn't this series serialized on a February or am I missing something?
The fact that he even gets to spend time with Tachikawa and Arashiyama squad should impress you. We're talking about the very top squad and the PR squad, their time should be quite valuable. What if everyone with ambitions for the rank wars went to them asking for personal training?
Osamu's power of networking is scary, very scary. I bet he's gonna make Ninomiya begrudgingly admit he's decent. Someday.
Then everyone with ambitions for the rank wars should save the lives of a close relative of an A-rank member, then win an outstanding achievement award during a major invasion.
Yes, it was serialized in February. Though Ashihara has probably been waiting for the right moment in the story to celebrate
Man, I want Osamu to be the Big Damn Hero so bad. Just once. Just once, have a character in mortal danger be saved by Osamu.
When the Marmod attacked the school
Nice trion inefficiency.
What was the end of the Invasion arc?
It was. At a guess, they wanted the 3rd year anniversary stuff to be done closer to the chapter number the series would be up to if there weren't any breaks. Normally at 48 chapters a year, a series would hit the three year mark at 144 chapters. Due to all the breaks for Ashihara's health, World Trigger was only up to chapter 130 when the anniversary date rolled around. So they probably decided to postpone the celebration until it reached the normal chapter count.
Yeah, but in a way that's based off of his own ability and not him taking the credit for something someone else did. The marmod attacking school incident left Afto know about C-rankers not having bailout, and the Invasion led with replica getting cutting in half and taken away to Afto, both of which Osamu's got guilt about.
Was the second anniversary on chapter 96?
Osamu dosent consider himself a hero because to him a heroic action has the perfect outcome for everyone. He is only someone who can do what he believes is right. Why do you think he didn't get mad at Jin when he revealed his actions were purely utilitarian? Because Jin did what he believes is right.
I wonder if it's possible to store pre-programmed meteor bullets inside the spider wires.
just another day for agent Mikumo.jpg
Wasn't it stated that other agents are really suspicious/jelly about Osamu and that he constantly meets with Scarface and other chiefs, top A agents etc.?
A-rank series match
T-2 fights with Kazama and Tachikawa
Suddenly Osamu trips on his own wire
He accidentally beheads Chameleon'ed Kazama with Raygust
suddenly a wild Tachikawa appears
He starts his chunni monologue how Osamu finally activated his inner eye, how this is a fated duel, how his blades tingle with excitement etc. etc.
during all this Osamu gets the cubes ready
Tachikawa says that he will use his true power against Osamu and starts unbelting the belts, but kinda does it slowly and with problems
Osamu shoots him in the meantime
Agent Tachikawa bailed out
Whole Border reaction is literally WHAT THE FLYING FUCK JUST HAPPENED
Rukia execution date was changed.webm
And so Agent Mikumo was first captain ever to acquire #0 rank as A-rank team.
Inside? Probably not. You can definitely put inactive meteor on the ends of the wires though.
I always skipped this part, and now I feel like I've been missing out.
If he defeats Godzuma himself then I think I'm gonna lose my shit for days
Osamu defeated himself
Everyone's respect went down
I'm still waiting for him to accidentally trip on his own wire.
As well as
4. The small influx of animefags who either survived or dropped the adaptation and opted for the superior version of the story
I unlocked the voices for Chuunikawa and Konami recently.
Maybe I'll do Jin next.
If only system voice didn't require a 6 Star version. I'm pretty sure you can't get more than one unless you pay.
Finally getting around to listening to the OST. It's got kind of a 80s-90s anime sound to it, especially with all the chimes.
On the topic of Smash Borders, the gatcha is cheaper this week but the high star pull rates are still standard
3 gems for one roll
35 gems for 10 rolls
It's only cheaper once per day
Katori sure is dominating the chapters of this match in terms of presence and now we are going to get a full backstory? Ashihara must have accidently created a new favorite character for himself.
Holy fuck. I've been waiting for this.
So has it been confirmed that Osamu is going to become a trapper like that one field operative yet?
What is Nasu Squad going to do after their Sniper leaves? It doesn't seem like they're gonna fracture and go their separate ways but they can't really win anything with just 2 combat members. Are they gonna poach? Or train up a talented rookie?
Some speculate they might get Izuho as she is trained by Touma and slowly gets good.
Trapper is a different position than what Osamu is doing
the Fun Facts segment were the best part of the anime.
You missed cast making fun of Hyuse not being able to sleep normally.
>not just having a head pillow that tilts his head forward slightly
or having holes for his horns to go through
He's gotta have some method down other than sleeping on his face.
Trappers seem to need high trion to power their traps. During the invasions Fuyushima had to link his traps to Border HQ's trion reserves. Osamu is probably too weak to use Switchbox well.
Osamu is going to end up as a defensive shooter/territory control specialist, but not go full trapper.
Get that c rank sniper, the one that always with Chika.
Ashihara has probably been waiting for the right moment in the story to celebrate
Cover might come the chapter after Katori's flashback if spoilers are to be believed
So in two weeks, something incredible is gonna go down that'll somehow top what just happened in this chapter?
something incredible is gonna go down that'll somehow top what just happened in this chapter?
If that happens i'm gonna die. I can barely contain my Raygust as it is.
Not exactly. It probably going to be T-2's first victory as a team and Them finding out about Hyuse
Dragging out the match with flashbacks so Ashihara can end the match with T-2 victory and the anniversary color spread
The anniversary color spread replaces Jin with Hyuse in celebration of the new T-2 team
Jin dies next arc
Osamu making fun of anybody
This sounds too good to be true.
I definitely feel there will be a team color spread with Hyuse
You know, every time Osamu has tried to do that, he almost kills himself in the process.
No you do not want Osamu to be the Big Damn Hero.
If so, I hope it's not the usual 4 main chara standing together. I like Hyuse a lot, but no way he could be main character
He's basically going to be a main character since he will be working closely with the main characters for a while
Beuh. That's funny. None of Usami or Tamakoma's becoming a main character. Why would Hyuse ever staying as T 2 if he could comeback to Afto.
Ashihara declared that the 4 is main charas. I think he is smart enough to know that subtituting one is suicide
GOD BLES JAPAN!
I need more. I NEED IT NOW.
Jin isn't going to be replaced. He is just going to continue doing what he does
Till he dies.
fingering her pussy while team meeting with mostly boys
What a slut
Ashihara didn't need to drag out the match since his real anniversary was in February. The thing that's dragging out the match is the combination of the other teams not being setup before the match due to the invasion and the slow kill of T-2's startegy.
He's not dying, just getting kidnapped and his memory erased.
Fun Facts Osamu is quite a mean guy sometimes.
He's not going to die nor kidnapped.
Border will suffer heavy defeat despite Jin's precog. The strategy he proposed failed because Neighbors had predict that someone in Meeden have the precog ability.
Jin become depressed and quit from border and become shut-in hikkikomori
Jin would be the best at games if he wanted to
He would be an elite Hikki as well, wouldn't he?
Yes, most definitely be Kirito-kun tier gamer
TFW no vol 1 on sadpanda
Someone needs to at least translate the 4koma stuff in pages 34-41.
Do you think Tamakoma will get a new squad in the future?
Hi that's me. I can only hope that another studio picks up world trigger. Toei is terrible
Pierrot will gladly take it. ;_;
Not unless they find three more ridiculously talented rookies.
Toei did better towards the end, but it's surprising how they scooped up the series really early in its lifespan only to start out with the cheapest budget possible
I actually sat through the filler arc, and I think toei dumped most of its budget into it
Even the Fun Facts section had more depth in the art than usual
sat through the filler arc
There was no filler arc. At least not in my world.
It was probably supposed to be a movie and they decided to use the budget to just make a filler arc
Border being super lax about not pursuing the filler characters
It does in mine, but it's easy to pretend that it didn't happen.
What about the obvious
We want the Yokai Watch audience, so what if trion soldiers were like Yokai?
Team battles are hard to write so we aren't doing that
It's like they mashed a few Pokemon movie concepts together and reskinned it with WT characters.
Threads almost at bump limit. See you guys tomorrow for based best girl's chapter
WT straight doujin
Nah, Kakizaki got a pretty full backstory as well. Ashihara's just trying to make a point of fleshing out the B-rank teams.
Sup Forums in a nutshell
Maybe it's just that Kakizaki personality is still a bit bland so he is just overshadowed by her when she is in the chapter
We hit bump
Well see you faggots when the spoilers releases
See ya tomorrow WT fags.
Not Kitora vanilla/femdom for the purpose of procreation
I'll still fap to this.
