Yellow blood cells?!? Seriously?

I think the growth on Hiro's chest is possibly an adaptation to 02. Also, would be wonderful if there was a later revel that Hiro and 02 were biologically related.

BTW, if there is an 02 then there was an 01, right?
There IS such a thing as yellow blood cells. It is an uncommon alternate name for thrombocytes. I addressed this a few pages back.

I can see where you are coming from about the teen angst and the relationship dram becoming tedious. It's why I always find the world building more interesting.

I don't think Hiro and 02 are biologically related. They might be biologically created to be compatible though.

If anything, I've continued to hold the theory that its Hiro and Ichigo who are biological siblings, considering their number order, their similar appearance, and the fact that they do indeed share some compatibility, just not in the same way Hiro and 02 do.

and if you count the kiss where neither him or her "really thicked anything" (romance/ heart) after the kiss and they "feel nothing" this make looks like her "crush over him is her just missunderstand her real feelings of "sister" for love for him.

Basically neither hiro or ychigo feel any "urge after the kiss" and they even told which this show which romantically they really are not even close to "compatible.

I find it funny that a series with such ridiculous sexual innuendo can even be taken seriously by you people. Let's slobber some honey on this girl and have her lick it up in a disgustingly crude manner because that's what otaku want yeah! Good grief, just let the main character die already and take that blue haired girl with her too at this point. Such angst is just getting in the way of my soft core porn here people.

Unfortunately, they already have platelets listed under the abbreviation PLT. PLT is a medical abbreviation which refers to platelets. Additionally the other two terms around it are also known medical abbreviations for Red cell Distribution Width and RETiculocytes.

In this case, Yellow blood cells may refer to the type of blood cells that Klaxosaurs carry, and this abnormal increase in YBC's may be causing the growth on his chest.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned about the other special forces FranXX. Hoping to see them in action soon.

Well, we do have to ask, which of those numbers apply to the cell seen on screen? We don't see them indicate which would be which. It could be that they use the PLT acronym and yet also call them yellow blood cells because they prefer to.

The reason I don't think they are klaxosaur cells is that they have made a distinction that 02 is the only one we've seen so far with klaxosaur blood. If everyone carries klaxosaur blood, they would have probably mentioned it already, and there would be more similarities between them and 02. 02 would pretty much be just like them, just with a higher blood cell count. Also they make a point about all the others being human and that this is an increase of cells and not that the cells have simply been introduced. And increase or decrease of said cells suggests they were already there to begin with. I don't think that is so.

There is also the issue that the animators and the writers are just making things up. YBC in this universe could be some man-made gobitty-glop that was added to the human race at some point or that they just mutated to have on their own.

Or, it could also be that the animators just put random medical data on the screen with little idea of what all the letters and numbers mean, and just did it to make it look authentic.
This especially works since most people watching this would have no idea what those acronyms mean, and many of the words are different in Japanese anyway.

We'll have to see what they mean next week, but I'll hold to it being abnormally shaped thrombocytes.
A severe decrease in them would account for the heavy internal bleeding 02's stamens go through, and a heavy increase in them, especially if they were malformed like red blood cells do with sickle cell, would cause heavy blood clots, a lot of pain, and a lot of blockages that would eventually cause death if not dealt with.

Imagination is freedom. If that comes with the price of absurdity, it's a small price to pay.

People care. After ep 5, there's no few comments about how she acted obnoxious in the episode. They just acknowledge that she had personality flaws and needed Hiro to mellow it out through his teammates over time.

Plus, the design is just a bonus. Replacing her personality and manners with a generic tsundere and I doubt she would have that much popularity like with her current personality.

What you described is probably the reason why she is popular in the first place and not just because she is hot. I personally find way more interesting seeing a "bitch" like her compared to the rest of the "i'm so cute and act so cute" little girls in the cast for example. Characters like 02 move the plot forward, are mysterious, strong, no drama queens or crybabies since usually they don't care about bs and more importantly extremely fun to watch. She and her personality are also directly tied with the main plot conspiracy because of her monster origins, which just seals the deal and makes me wanting to know more. You could remove all the sexual innuendos and make her not so pretty, i would still like her character since i believe the plot here has potential even tho i'm not really fun of such blatant fanservice in stories that want to feel more dramatic.

I'm not a fan of Tsundere, so I can definitely vouch for her being less interesting if she was. Her personality and confidence are great, but we have pointed out she's got some massive flaws over the last few pages, including a flagrant disinterest in the lives of others outside of Hiro.

Zero Two is a wild, dangerous, dominant, "evil" succubus. If nothing else it is not often if ever we get a main girl like that. Honestly I like her quiet a bit.

If you've already made up your mind about her. I think it's pretty obvious we will learn that it is more complicated than this. You would have to believe for example that she was completely faking it in here:

And I also hope that people see where those ''massive flaws'' come from and how her surroundings had an influence on that.

This is pretty silly for a number of reasons.

First, yes, there are some traits that can result 'hot' on a first impression whereas we realise the flaws implicit in them in the long run. That is just normal. Some tastes are acquired, others are enjoyable only in small amounts.

Second, this is fiction, and I feel like when people keep attaching moral or personal judgement to others based on what they like in their movies/anime/whatever they're basically acting as if they're the only ones realising that, or as if people relate to fiction as they do to reality. Repeat the mantra: this is fiction, and as I realise it, so does mostly everyone else. Corollary: this is fiction, and the same rewards, punishments, and ethical considerations as real life do not apply. So if someone like 02 in real life could be hot but also really dangerous and abusive, in fiction, we can enjoy the seductive aspects of her character without having to fear for the consequences. Because she is not a real person. Just like I can enjoy running people over and killing innocents in GTA without being a sociopath in real life, because I do it in GTA exactly because I know those are non-sentient artificial constructs. It's make-believe. Children realise this when they're, like, four years old, so it'd be really nice to stop this current trend (which doesn't certainly belong to you alone) to pretend that grown-ass adults don't just because they like stuff that you don't. Usually, they do. Every day, lots of thinkpieces, and critiques, and political analyses come out that seem to be based on this fundamentally stupid and flawed premise.

As for me, these negative part of her personality make her interesting. Her attractive look it's just a nice addition.

A rather piercing question I think.

Why are they called Parasites? Why are they just referred by numbers? Do they even grow up as adults? What happens to those that don't pass?

Why are most of the adults sketchy wearing masks? Why are their meal prayers instead of giving thanks is praying for Papa's well being?

Every anime girl is attractive. It doesn't make them stand.

They don't know what a kiss is. Ichigo and Goro don't even understand what they feel. Ironically Zero Two brings humanity into their group. She breaks their routine. Some of them start copying her. They observe her holding hands with Hiro with a mix of emotions. And even the pain and confusion Ichigo and Goro feel gives them more humanity. it's like they are awakening to more human experience.

I kind of have a feeling if rain didn't start Zero Two was going to lay it all out to Ichigo how much humanity they are lacking.

Well the kids have no idea about adult stuff, they dont know about emotions, what is darling or what is a kiss. They live door to door with each other gender and have no naughty throughts. Its all becouse they were growing in such isolated environment, no one tought them about that besides how to use Franxx and how to combat.

Ichigo or Goro suffer from that lack of understanding of emotions, Ichigo is suffering for a reason she cant describe and understand and its driving her mad. Simply its an unknown thing to her just like how those emotions are new thing to Goro, he would want to cheer her up but did not know what to do or what is Ichigos deal.

Hiro too doesnt know about those stuff but he is slowly learning from 02, other kids are mimicing them.

That kiss Hiro shared with Ichigo was shallow becouse she was doing this with no deeper meaning, feelings, emotions she simply did it as an impulse like eating, becouse there was a chance that it would help Hiro get back to piloting, 02 kissed with feelings of knowing what she is actualy doing.

In next episodes kids will mostly start to understand about emotions and feelings and how they drive people. Still Ichigo and Goro need to talk it out with each other and with Hiro what they feel or stuff will look grim for the synhro rate.

I don't think it's fair to group all of 02's fans together in one big group, many people like her for different reasons.

I think as her character changes within the series, people will also change their opinion about her, while others with feel the same throughout.

She could mellow out and become much more emotionally connected to the other characters, some will love that and some would dislike that. She could also go full dark and cause the deaths of all the main cast and cause the MC's descent into the darkness. People would still love her character even then and make excuses for her, while others would begin to hate her.

Everyone's opinion is free to change, and most of them will.

Now we have official information. In this case Hiro doesn't have any kind of fellings for Ichigo, in the case of Zero Two, she's someone special for him (obvioulsy).
