And since you're so convinced that they're doing cloning, then tell me why is there such familiarity between Zorome and that woman?
Because Zorome could be a clone of her partner ?
Or maybe she was just monitoring him at some point.
It's still so obscur I can't really tell what's the T...

No it wouldn't. No matter how much my pleasure centers would be stimulated, my mind would still need nourishment.

To develop and maintain what we call a healthy, functional mind? Maybe. To feel satisfied? No. Again, that is the point. Boredom, cravings... they're functions of the brain. Activate the right neurons and you won't feel them.

Adult immune system is weak. I don't know if you are old enough there was a kid living in a environmentally sealed bubble as germs will kill him.

Note she says in the ancient days partnerships between man and woman were for the purpose of not only companionship but procreation. She is not having sex or any adult for that matter.

However she could very well be his genetic donor. Clones don't need to be exact copies. Thing is making clones of clones shortens telemeres. We only have a finite set of these which is why we age.

Whenever Zorome boasts that he will be an adult those in the know the adults and the other squad of parasites would not answer him. The lady here says him moving there becoming her friend is impossible. Which could mean they have a limited lifespan.

Also post-menapause women having babies tends to have children to have weak immune systems or a lower chance of survival upon birth. I should know as I was born really small that doctors gave me a fifty-fifty chance of survival. Had to be kept in an incubator for 3 months.

You mind (IE your brain) gets nourishment. I'm assuming it gets all the nutrients it needs from that machine.

An exact copy of a person doesn't need to be an exact copy? Wait what? How does that even work? Cloning is the process of creating things that are genetically identical.

I mean, there's still a certain amount of effect from environmental factors when the clone is growing up. But besides that, sometimes in sci-fi we get "clones" that are really genetically modified versions of their originals. So not technically "true" clones, but still close enough genetically that they pretty much count.

Epigenetic re-programming is a factor. Take for example https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CC_(cat)"]C.C. aka Carbon Copy the first cloned cat whose donor was a calico colored cat yet C.C. ended up as a tabby due different genes activating due other factors. Such as C.C.'s surrogate mother was a tabby.

TFW you trigger one epigenetic marker too much and your cloned cat ends up a bit off the mark.

............ I'm not even sure how to reply to this anymore. Are you saying that a hundred-odd kids all ended up looking radically different and even ended up with different genders because of epigenetics? Come on, you're grasping now.

Reminder that discussion of previews should be in spoiler tags... (because the previews are released separately to the episode itself).

Friendly reminder you can never guess what next episode will be about from a preview.... people thought we would get the blue oni theory was going to happen from ep 6(and was wrong), people also thought the adult from last episode would be an age up Naomi(again wrong)

No one, obviously. How many non-hentai anime do you know where people actually have sex? Only ones I can think of are Parasyte, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Revolutionary Girl Utena, and Panty & Stocking w Garterbelt.
