As bad as Eden seems about now, Eve worries me more.  I get the feeling she's planning some kind of 'purge the human race' thing, with Takayama as her accomplice.

Eden still good guys. Kill few to not destroy all, and human future with them.
Eve, however... She suspicious.

Finally got around to catching up.

The American Seraphs are also young, and like I said, raised away from the rest of the world. This may have stunted their growth quite a bit and left them as children in their way of thinking. I mean, they steal from people and take advantage from them and they don't see anything wrong in what they are doing or even if they do, they don't seem to have any remorse.

So I don't think it was a case of Seraphs turning away from society. For me they were bunch of Children running for they lives and quided by wrong person.
(I'm still waiting for "[future] were everyone can laught and be happy" to backfire by them considering only Birdmens as "everyone" Ch23 pg20 after some more changes)
And I swear she knew!

I consider that to be Medium Text ;)

Or C: as they are a scientific organization they leave them to see where this will go.

Nah... definitely A

The message you replied to was meant to correct everyone who was calling Tanabe 'he'. It wasn't meant to point out anything other than that. Please edit your comment since right now it makes Shinji10TH look like a bigot.

 

Brutal chapter. Kinda interesting that American seraphs are portrayed as extremely optimistic.

Hmmm, in that case my bad. Without context, it does look like that. He didn't quote anyone to correct them, so that was what I thought he meant.

 

Also them being portrayed as optimistic runs with how I see America and it is portrayed. Land of the free and where you can fight for anything. Where the people come first. While they may have been rasied away from the rest of the world, that way of thinking may have come to them through the scientists. They may try to be objective but some things are unconciously done. I mean things may have gone to shit recently, but "The American Dream" was something that was around for a LONG time.

Wasn't there something in one of the earlier chapters about the Birdmen slowly retreating away from humans and forming their own communities away from us. Not speaking but communicating via Telepathy. Enstranging themselves further from us. This may be a symptom of that.

So, I called it. I called it hard. Still, Tanabe manages to make it brutal and feels-inducing with the same skill as usual.

 

You sure did mate... I get now why it has a tag of tragedy now... Damn that was tragic

As much as I love this series, whenever I read it I feel this really oppressive atmosphere, so much so that I can't binge read it.  It's like I'm always under someone's thumb, along with the characters.  Which, in a sense, is fantastic writing if the author means to do that.  Still, I feel like it could use a filler episode that has nothing to do with the main plot in order to break the tension.

Probably has to do with the fact we see very little from the antagonists, so their motivations and goals are unclear, while their methods are shown to be ruthless, and our main characters know very little about wtf's going on and it feels like people around them are either none the wiser or are feeding them half-truths.

This is the point at which any competent evil organization either
A: Shoots the troublemaking idiot
or
B: Blows up the "farm" containing all the rabble he's rousing as a very object lesson.

So, I called it.

I called it hard.

Tanabe is great when shit gets real. And shit just got real real.

He was an idiot.

He was to pure for this World

Brutal chapter. Kinda interesting that American seraphs are portrayed as extremely optimistic.

I think it's due to american birdmens being held in "cages" while Jap. ones are "free". Once they regained their freedom, they kinda went crazy and it makes sense that one who experienced slavery wanted to save everyone with similiar fate as fast as possible. He knew how much it sucs first hand and couldn't stand letting others suffer that fate, if he could help it.
While it is tragic it makes sense.

We all knew it was coming but I really liked how it was executed. Some nice touches, like the reflection in Robin's eyes.

 

I also like how it's all being used as motivation for Takayama. I really do love Tanabe's work.

D-did I just read a manga chapter with Americans that aren't big-nosed, loud-mouthed assholes!?
What's happening to the world!?

Well, it because this children was isolated from american government and propaganda. Also, Eden`s head - russian.

Just wanted to point out that Tanabe is a female mangaka.

And? Manga is amazing regardless of the creators gender.

 

Edit: Apparently Shinji was correcting people who called Tanabe female. Don't this look bad.

Yep. Definitely saw that coming.

And then there was despair

So we are up for lesson why Birdmens need to make friends with public opinion first.
Gee, it's not hard to get. We don;t need bunch of kid to die for that.

Going from Kekkaishi, it is possible that there'll be deaths.

However, it'll be likely treated a major tragic event that'll scar the related characters for the remaining of the series.

A single death or otherwise serious injury in Arthur's group will likely be enough to make it dissolve into quarrels and kids saying that's what he wants, not what the group wants and being overall uncooperative, simply leave or force Arthur into straight up brainwashing and starting him on a downhill route to a villain perhaps.

I spoiled myself with the Wiki Page.
Here's what will happen, read it at your own risk:
 
Spoiler
so karasuma has some hooks in to his immediate flock and into the catgirl (REMEMBERY VOICE). has he used a dark speech bubble on the other eden seraph that they met? will that block influence from the other bellwether?

Les Infant Teribles?? what is this metal gear solid??

 
It's spelled "Les Enfants Terribles".
And it's a French novel from 1929.
 
Please don't remind me of MGS and its abyssal French pronunciation, okay?
"Lezz anf-untz terreeblzz"
*shudder*
