There seem to be some parallels between Suou and Hei. Both have younger siblings who've become contractors, yet both still want to protect them even though it doesn't make much sense. I wonder if Suou will ever come to hate Shion, like Hei did his sister.

LightningZERO 2009-10-16 08:47

Suou's anti tank rifle...that's scary. I wonder will she need any special power to use it

I've never recalled Hei ever hating his sister

Got to give props to Suou for being tough; she faced her problems head on and even made Hei look bad in the process :heh:

She'll need a power to be able to lift the damn thing. :heh:

There's a scene with him about to strangle her while she's sleeping. He never completely hated her, I think, but it was certainly a part of how he felt about her.

LightningZERO 2009-10-16 10:59

I thought it just brotherly love? Like killing her so she doesn't have to kill people again

Suou's rifle--it's an old anti-tank rifle that was used for a brief period of time in WWII. Abandoned because it was so impractical to use.:heh:

Namihana 2009-10-16 20:19

Impractical? How so?

Please do explain. I'm rather interested in this piece of weaponry. In fact, what is it's real name?

I think it's PTRS-41 or PTRD-41 since this is Russia we're talking about.

It's a PTRD-41, indeed, judging from what I've seen in the OP; namely the muzzle break and the bolt.

Suou has the potential to be a really good character for this show. She is going to need to train herself in order to be able to carry that gun around though.

The OP demonstrates the change of "worlds" shes undergoing, and the entire train thing was a symbol of her leaving things behind. I think it was all well done, and I dig stories like her's.

blewin 2009-10-17 04:25

Suou'll create the character dynamics needed here to spice things up. It's normal to pair a quiet person up with a more feisty character. I think we can expect some really good dynamics here between Suou and Hei.

Avisch 2009-10-17 09:55

Yeah Im really enjoying Suou as our new protagonist.

The opening really gives good contrast to the character we've been introduced to. She's no longer smiling, only looking very determined and ready to do business.

And I was no huge fan of Gunslinger girl. But for some reason I find it incredibly awesome that she's going to be using an anti-tank rifle.

HEY show some respect! Without that gun, death would have befallen the soldiers in Pavlov's house.
Lol.

I thought Suou and Shion were twins.

Recoil from that gun would make accelerated healing pretty handy.

Yes, but Suou is the older twin.

Not going to argue technicalities, though older by a minute or so sounds a bit nonsensical to me when defining big-sister/little-brother relationship.

But she lifted and tossed it aside in ep. 2 already without any problems. She also called it a piece of junk. :heh:

PTRD is lighter than the PTRS-41. (approx 38 lbs)

So we know she can lift close to 45 lbs.

She's a strong girl, for that age. That's insane, although undoubtedly, the rifle that Nika had at the hideout was probably falling apart and was missing a few pieces, that might have lightened it down.

In fact, it kinda looked shorter.
