Suisei no Gargantia 02

Suisei no Gargantia

Amy knows, the way to a man’s heart is truly through his stomach. Even if he is an lost soldier from outer space. Also slightly glad that saying remains true even after an apocalyptic Ice Age hit the Earth and decimated most of humanity and the planet.

Also, Chamber’s lasers are goddamned hax. Even I felt bad for those poor pirates, they probably didn’t even see what hit them.

    B-But how did Chambers know who/what was ally vs foe? Really is just pure hax0rs.

    It must be that Chambers has a highly-advanced psycho-telemetry system.

    *Watching scene*
    “Oh man this is going to be epic. I wonder if those pirates will beg for them life.”

    *Chamber disintegrates every pirate in less than 10 seconds*

    “Well Shit…”

    The way the pirates got annihilated is quite funny. Not even a chance. Well, let’s see how the humans react now :)

    I am so goddamned hyped for this show now that it’s not even funny. Haven’t felt this bullish on an anime since Shinsekai Yori.

    It was actually just really.. advanced.. teleportation technology.
    Destination: hell.

    Methinks the pirate annihilation won’t have the desired outcome that Led and Chamber had in mind.

    @nil: Wondered that myself. But it shouldn’t be impossible. The chamber already saw many persons on the Gargantia. Maybe he just shot on unknown persons holding guns.
    But a bit more unrealistic is the speech-anlysis anticipating that we saw everything that happened. Then it’s not correct that the Chamber used words which there never used before. But we don’t know how much they talked while trying to disassemble it, so this could be possible, too.

    @Organics: Me too. I didn’t even marked this anime to watch when going through the Anime Spring Chart. But man if this goes into space again this will be as epic as gunbuster1&2. I just couldn’t hold my laughter seeing how powerless the pirates were against those advanced weapons. Really loved it.

    Is it me, or is this Waterworld meets Gundam/Eureka7, just curious. Those priates seemed a lot like the smokers from Waterworld. But that isn’t a negative, big plus for me, because i am in the small minority who think Waterworld is actually a good movie, one of my favorite movies that ended up being a bust at the boxoffice, but i consider it a great B-flick with headline actors (or i guess actor) :p

    @xyzdragon
    I beg to disagree. I think the language part is the easier of the two and the more realistic one for a highly advanced computer. My conjecture is that it is applying a yet unknown natural language processing algorithm combined with a genetic algorithm that iteratively “evolves” the language using ancient earth language as its base and applying mutations whose properties are computed from the trends over the levenshtein distance between the ancient and the “modern” language.

    @xyzdragon/aim-stalker:
    Yeah, I agree with aim-stalker. Speech analysis is something still under the works, but has made improvements so far even in current society. Unhesitatingly blasting lazzers out at a bunch of people with (supernatural) knowledge of whether foe or ally is just…no. If he did only shoot at “unknown persons holding guns” (and what about the vessels?), then that could make for some unwieldy ramifications if he had vaporized an ally. Having Champers accomplish his task so perfectly is technology tantamount to mind-reading.

    Or he simply targetted the “attackers” – the ones pointing guns on hostages, unarmed personel. Probably he used a scan of some sort and then processed the data to judge the situation. Usualy if you know the allies are under attack, or captured, you can tell the who is the enemy by observing who got the weapons, and who is unarmed.

    if they can create a spaceship with can travel through wormholes, super hard alloy and highly advance AI, why not a super advance IFF which can tell the difference between hostile targets and unarmed civilians?

    @kyon22: Because things equivalent to mind reading is more ESP/randomshit than generic technobabble that’s commonplace in sci-fi. Also because it was hilariously anticlimactic—both in animation/production values and story-wise.

    It would be interesting.if some the people form a cult around the chamber. That could bring up some real drama

    I don’t think Chamber’s identification of pirates was so impossible. Basically, if Chamber is as intelligent as a person, all that it would took him to identify pirates and civilian is a look – wouldn’t you be able to tell them apart in that situation? The difference with a normal human is that Chamber has much better visuals, and possibly also biometric data sensors. Being able to tell apart the single heartbeats of everyone from that distance is a bit hard to believe, but not supernatural.

    Chamber did not need to know which is the enemy. While they were trying to escape the cargo hold, Chamber was constantly scanning. When he came outside to defend Ledo, he targeted everyone facing against them. Chamber knows practically everyone on Gargantia. He could just have killed anyone who doesnt belong on Gargantia and any ship previously not associated with Gargantia.
