Tower Of God:

Ren's goal was very simple: He was an assassin send to kill Anak and retrive Green April. As for the letter, it was either send by the 2nd floor director or the red-haired guide, and the point was to give them an excuse to 'fail' Rachel by having her pretend to be injured, and therefore give them another shot at Baam.

@Eschaton - it would make a very good adaptation to a show, you're right. Shame Korean works have a snowball's chance in hell of ever getting animated. Let alone a wide distribution. I'd still love to see it, though.

Thoughts on our dear Rachel: we don't know the half of it yet, so don't make assumptions. Ditto goes with Baam. With SIU, assumptions will just get you egg on your face. [lol]

There are new chapters out, although it doesn't look as if we've started the second part proper yet.

The Q&A answers some of our what we were pondering from earlier.

In particular the author says that from this point on floor chapter length will be pretty variable and some floors won't make an appearance at all.

Also tests beyond the second floor can be taken again if you fail I believe.

... And if you were just dying to know how Koon does his hair, all the author seems willing to reveal is that he carries a hair straightener.

[up] And while we note the minuscule chance of this getting animated the author notes the abysmal chance of this getting a tankobon.

And then there's this.

This series is pretty devoid of shout outs so I wonder if it was in the raws?

You know this must mean there's Dragon Shouts in the TOG universe. It would be awesome if we see some.

I can forgive any number of missing shout-outs for one very simple reason: a certain just-add-water-to-anything, scheming, coffee-addicted maniac. I very much doubt we've seen the last of him. Or Headon, for that matter.

Suspicion #1 of the new arc: don't mess with the Gamer-Chick-Princess. It'll not go well with you. And, not because of Koon's sister coming down on you like a tonne of bricks, either. I suspect she's just as dangerous to mess with in a fight as any other Princess.

I certainly got the impression that's she's Yuri's equal, if not her superior.

And I trust we all remember what Yuri did to Ren?

Well, now: that's a bit of a character shift, wouldn't you say? Doubt it'll be for all that long, though. He just likes people, even if he has been burned. smile

I was kind of amused when I realized why Baam seems so powerful; his resistance to Shinsoo has always been through the roof, so of course Shinsoo based attacks won't work. And everyone else is so used to Shinsoo being the be-all end-all answer to everything, they don't even consider using conventional weapons on him, making him appear basically invincible.

Also, just noticed that that silver-haired smarmy guy conspicuously wasn't offered a chip.

This is basically a webtoon, so we should be able to link to it right?

Latest chapter (season 2, chapter 5) here

Isn't Baam looking a bit like a villain of late?

The backstory is interesting though. I wonder if someone actually built the tower? If they did they mast be more powerful than anyone else currently in the tower, even the current person in charge. Or would that make them god?

I had previously assumed the towed was an eternal feature of the universe. Otherwise how else would there be more floors than anyone has ever seen?

The idea of Quaint becoming the mascot for a line of chips amuses me. Unemployment's probably not really treating him particular well, after all.

[up]I can think of no good reason why that wouldn't be allowed.

Also, it's not more floors than can be counted; plenty of people have made it to the top, after all.

Nobody has made it to the top. They only make it to the current highest floor explored.

Source: http://towerofgod.wikia.com/wiki/Floor_135

Even Zahard hasn't made it beyond floor 134. Actually it does say that Zahard is rank 3, implying that at least one person surpasses the current king of the civilised tower.

[up][up][up] Duh, I feel like 6 different forms of stupid. Should've done that myself. I keep forgetting The Company has their own website, and use proxies simply 'cos I follow other manga/manhwa/webcomics/webtoons. Delete as applicable. tongue

And, well: he got badly burned. At most, he's feeling more Byronic Hero than up and up The Hero these days. But, I'll wait to see before I start to make changes. He may lighten up. 18 months of BSOD because of Rachel? Makes sense.

And, yes. "The top" just translates to 135 — or whatever that floor is off the top of my head. Zahard just gave up and makes others do so. I'm in the camp that believes the missing Irregulars are either planning to break the monopoly so they can climb again... or are already climbing. Not sure which is doing what, though.

New chapter.

Ohh.... I can't wait to see what Bamm gets. Not to mention what the hidden part of this test is (considering how just about every test has a hidden side/answer to it).

[up]I say he will break the machine, Vegeta style.

Also I hope it won't take too long for his face to be revealed, what kind of sour/angry/vain expression does Baam have now? Maybe it will be shown when he meets some of his ex-companions.

Euo will do!
Yes, that's brat's face when Baam kills the machine should be good... evil grin Suddenly, Androssi is looking like a sweet girl, all things considered. At least she does her own dirty work.

Hi I didn't realize there was a thread for this.

What if Baam loses because he burnt himself up healing a little bit ago?

Or perhaps his fist will go straight through the little circle, so the machine doesn't register his presence at all.

Then he murders people until "0" is in the top 8.

Wait if he does win what will he do with the chick?

Why would he have to do anything? All he's focused on is getting through this. If that means killing everybody in the room, so be it. Otherwise, he'll be more likely to just ignore them. (As he tried to do before he got given free chips.) grin

But, I seriously would like *somebody*, anybody to plant a good punch on that snot's face just because... <shudders> Right now, I'm not picky who.

I guess ignoring her would imply that she would be free.

As much as the tower is focused on, I wonder what the outside world is like since irregulars are all noted to be extremely overpowered. Zahad himself is an outsider and Urek is noted to have entered the tower tracking Phantaminum, the current highest ranker.

Also I'm guessing that the test determines who the next 8 move on "for sure" while the rest still have to compete in other ways, either that or Baam goes into "kill all competition" mode again and does something ridiculous changing the plans of everyone involved in the test.

It could be almost everyone outside is fairly normal, but the ones who can force their way into the Tower are over powered. So it's a skewed way of looking at things.

There's Rachel to consider, in any case; she seems pretty normal despite having come from outside.

So I'm guessing EHK is right on this one; the people from outside who became irregulars are all overpowered because you it's near impossible to become an irregular without being overpowered.

That's been my take on it for ages: just to open the doors, or even to have the Tower notice you, you need oomph. Without your own power, you need to do what Rachel did to enter: piggy back (and, hope like hell "the fairy" wants the person you used badly enough not to kill you stone dead).

EDIT: Actually, this points out how badly thought-out Rachel's plan was to start with. She really had no idea what happened inside the Tower. Bypassing the Tower's default choosing method (open my doors by yourself, if you can) only meant that, under normal circumstances, she'd be killed before she even got near the 2nd Floor. From her point of view, she got lucky. Very undeservedly lucky. And, that's why she's a very jealous bunny.
