Finally a book asking the real questions behind SnK.
For those of you who haven’t heard, Kuso Kagaku Dokuhan (空想科学読本) will be releasing this little gem on August 8th. The book will contain 208 pages and answer some of the questions that you never thought you wanted to know until now. Some of the questions/answers to be found are:
- Did you know Eren’s punch (in titan form) is 6,561 times as powerful as an average human?
- The laborers who worked on Walls Maria, Rose, and Sina had to carry 60,000 tons of stone every day in order to complete them in the given time frame.
- If an amateur used 3DMG and lost control, they would plunge to the ground at a speed of 78 kilometres an hour (48 MPH).
- A 60 meter class titan has a body temperature of 602 degrees.
- In 2014 the only human being alive that could successfully outrun a 4 meter titan is Usain Bolt (Jamacian Olympic sprinter).
Other questions of note are ‘Why do Titans come from the south only?,’ ‘WTF is up with Levi’s super strength?!,’ and of course the ever popular ‘SHIT! A titan is coming, how do I escape?!’
All in all, I think this is going to be one fascinating read. My roommate and I are not going to be left in the dust when the titans attack. ^^ Pre-order your own copy here!
Hm, the fact that they’re going to answer ‘WTF is up with Levi’s super strength?!’ so casually makes me think that perhaps the human experimentation theory won’t manifest in canon…
(Unless the answer is “WE DON’T KNOW EITHER” or something, haha)
First of, Chris, you were absolutely spot on on what you said about Fair Use. It’s true that using material for teaching purpose, studies, citing for news, parodies pretty much…
First stop, I partially agree about voltage’s rising popularity, and their protection towards their work and apps. As a company, having such rules and regulations is a form of protecting their work and profits. Yes, profits. If there are pirated version of it (and it’s free) no one wants to buy/purchase a route from voltage anymore, thus their profit will go down. This kind of statement also applies onto people who are sharing the CGs online. Because once you got the CGs, will you still want to pay for the route just to get the damm CGs?? Maybe some will still would, but for some people, no.
"Fair Use" is definitely not applied on people who shares the route online, screenshots and CGs as well. (Can be if it’s for research purposes, I guess? But otome games cannot be applied as an educational subject, right? lol)
I am not sure about Japan Law, but here in Singapore they have a very strict commercial laws.. or something. Basically unless ya being authorized, you are not allowed to showcast any of any products (Like brand etc) through media. When I look up at the restriction part, it seems familiar… but I am not sure if it’s the same or not.
But at the same time, through my point of view, I personally feel that as long as ya did not make any money out of it, you’re kinda safe and no need to worry about getting sued by a company and shit. Because even though they can take down videos, screenshots, Cgs from almost every social media, it cannot be stopped. Because fansites, sharing etc are surprisingly, another way that help the company earn more money. It has also become a sensation within such pop-cultural, as sharing and spreading among the others helps to promote their games. (And to the company, they will be like “look someone’s promoting our games for free, and we do not need to pay a single cent for promoting and stuff etc”) Of course, I do not encourage piracy, but it’s everywhere.
All I want to say is, if the company can deal with it, let them. Piracy is like ripping off people’s artwork (Which I don’t like), but at the same time it’s a dilemma because taking it completely down is also a problem. (I mean, just look at the recent incident about the Japanese government wanted to take down those manga/anime websites! A huge outrage 0_0 )
So yeah, that’s my personal opinion towards this topic. I repeat, don’t take in my statement 100% seriously as this is just a point of view and some rough knowledge that I had towards the media and copyright issues according to my experience and research. If there’s any update, I will read it again and do another review.
For now, this are just my two cent worth. If someone come and twist/misinterpret my post again, I’ll find it ridiculously funny because I already said that it’s my opinion and don’t take in 100% seriously cause it might be not true and I will still update more in the future about this topic.
