The Ones Within (Naka no Hito Genome [Jikkyōchū])

Recommended Posts

If you’ve been following my recent posts, you’ll know this series has become one of my obsessions. 

The premise is that eight teenagers, (each specializing in a particular genre of online gaming) are abducted and forced to complete a series of challenges which are streamed live. Their masked host informs that they will remain trapped until they can accumulate 100 million views. 

The things that stand out immediately are the weird setting where realistically impossible things happen frequently and the smart-alecky banter between the characters (kinda like Haruhi Suzimiya). While the initial impression of the series is comedic, the more it progresses the more mystery, suspense & psychological it becomes. It’s becoming increasingly clear that the various characters have their own secrets and in at least one case it makes him/her potentially dangerous.

I realize that this series is under most people’s radar. But I think @Castigear has watched a couple episodes & @LonelyPoet mentioned the manga it is based on. I thought I would see if there’s enough interest to justify a discussion or at least recommend checking it out to my fellow forum members because I’m enjoying it a lot. Here in the US you can find the dub on Funimation (the version I’m following) and the subtitled version on Hulu. Let me know what you think.

Thank you for sharing that you can actually find this in Dub.. I'll see if my hubby will join me for a marathon, it seems like it'd be up our alley.

The dub is really well done IMO and is one of the rare instances that I prefer it over the original language. I watched a couple episodes of the subtitled version for comparison and they were almost identical as far as translation, just some slight embellishment on the english version that seemed to match the series overall tone. Definitely doesn’t sound like the VAs are just reading from a script 🤣

This sounds like something I would enjoy watching. and like Seshi said, the fact it is in dub is helpful to me and would be something I'd watch more due to that ^^ Thanks for sharing about it, it sounds super interesting and I'm gonna check this one out ;3

Just finished episode 5. Continue to be Impressed at how they usually manage to give each of the characters a moment in every episode. Though it felt like this  challenge ended rather abruptly and with a lot of hanging questions.  Also surprised in that I never I thought I would feel even a twinge of sympathy for Paka, but ...

Anyway, hope some other folks decide to give this one a try.

Episode 7

wound up watching the subtitled version since the dub wasn’t up. Hoping it’s just delayed instead of discontinued. Not a huge deal but it was one of the rare ones where I prefer the dub and it might be an obstacle for others.

      I just noticed that the Humble store is currently selling a light novel/book bundle with a bunch of Kodansha's "Monogatari" stuff by Nisio Ishin (aka "NisiOisiN").  If you're a Bake/Nise/Etc fan you might want to check it out.
       
      (Not sure if this is quite the right category for this topic but I didn't see a light-novel category sooo... <plunk>)

      I wanted to make a thread about this anime a few months ago, but I guess I lost track of time. Oh well.

      The Case Files of Lord El-Melloi II is a direct sequel to Fate/Zero. It takes place 10 years after the 4th Holy Grail War, starring Waver Velvet, now known as Lord El-Melloi II. The Fate series has an Urban Fantasy setting, but so far this anime has more of a Detective Mystery setting, taking place in England.
      So far, I'm liking it. I like the majority of the characters from the Fate universe, but there's typically not enough material that covers the aftermath of some characters or instances of magic being used in everyday life. The Case Files of Lord El-Melloi II fixes this by focusing upon the emotional impact of Fate/Zero on Waver as well as exploring the potential of magic outside of the Holy Grail War, which is mostly just expositioned by characters in Fate/stay night.
      If you haven't seen any Fate, the only thing that you'd want to watch before this anime is Fate/Zero. I've heard from some people that you could watch this anime without Fate/Zero, but the OVA kind of spoils some of the events of Fate/Zero. Then again, it's nearly impossible to avoid Fate spoilers in this day and age.
      I don't know if anyone is watching this, but it'd be nice to hear someone else's thoughts. I finished Episode 0 yesterday, and it felt nice to know that there's still a future for my favorite characters and stories.

      Hello all, MTGA (Magic the Gathering Arena) is one of my all-time favorite games. Sadly however, there is no good option for finding matches with your friends, in fact you're invites to matches do not even get seen if the other person does not also invite the sender. It is because of this problem I thought I would make this thread, so us MTGA players can coordinate our matches better and not just fight randoms all day. 
      Thread Rules: If you post please post your MTGA profile name and code, for example mine is: LILDOOP#62084 (THIS IS NOT YOUR PASSWORD)
      You can view your profile name and code by going to your profile page when logged into MTGA fyi. 
       
      This thread is for anything MTGA related, so you can post cool decks you have made or ideas for decks. You can, once you have given your code out request matches with other players who have done the same and discuss times you will be on. You can talk about lore or make up your own card ideas, really anything MTGA related. So yea, this is like a little club but not in club form because I already belong to 4 clubs. 
       
      Btw, here (below) are some card ideas I made (tell me your thoughts?). 
       
      Davriel, Malignant Copyist 
      Card Type: Legendary Planeswalker -Human (Mythic Rare) 
      If your opponent has exiled more than 15 cards you have hexproof and Davriel, Malignant Copyist gains 1 extra loyalty counter per turn. When Davriel, Malignant Copyist dies exile it. 
      +1 Target player exiles the top two cards of their library. 
      -6 Opponent loses health equal to the amount of cards in their exile. 
      -X You may play any number of opponents exiled cards without paying their mana cost. Creature cards played this way go into exile upon death. 
      Starting Loyalty counter: 3 
      Mana Cost: 2 Swamps +4 swamps (or) Islands. 
       
      Garruk, Walkers Bane 
      Card Type: Legendary Planeswalker -Human (Mythic Rare)
      Beasts you control enter the battlefield with +1/1 counters. 
      +2 Place a 2/2 black and green beast creature token with vigilance onto the battlefield. Beast has: "Pay 1, creature gains your choice of either death-touch or trample until end of turn. 
      -6  For every land you control put a +1/1 counter on all non token beasts you control. For every swamp you control deal 1 damage to all opponents creatures. 
      -8 Destroy any number of target planeswalkers then exile them. If you destroy Garruk, Walkers Bane this way transform it. 
      Starting Loyalty counter:  3
      Mana Cost: 4 (no color) +2 green, +2 black
      Transformed = Garruk, hateful hunter 
      Card type: Legendary creature -Human 
      Stats: 10/5 
      Traits: Indestructible 
      Garruk, hateful hunter has indestructible as long as it is attacking if your opponent has at least 1 planeswalker card in exile. 
      Whenever Garruk, Hateful hunter is dealt damage sacrifice a beast. Whenever Garruk deals damage to target player or planeswalker proliferate. 
      Pay 7, sacrifice Garruk, Hateful hunter and put Garruk, Walkers Bane into your library third from the top. 
       
      Ob Nixilis, the Profaned 
      Card Type: Legendary Planeswalker -Demon (Mythic Rare) 
      Whenever an instant, sorcery or triggered ability causes an opponent to lose life you gain life equal to 2x the life lost. 
      +1 Look at the top three cards of your library, choose an instant or sorcery card from among them and play it without paying its mana cost. If no instant or sorcery spells were used deal 2 damage to target player. 
      -X Take control of any amount of target creatures. The creatures gain haste until end of turn. At the end of your turn destroy all stolen creatures and put a loyalty counter on Ob Nixilus, the Profaned for each creature destroyed this way. Lose life equal to the creature's power and toughness combined; if you die this way transform Ob Nixilus, The Profaned, his power becomes your health. 
      -8 Place all the God Eternal's onto the battlefield tapped. 
      Starting Loyaty counter: 5 
      Mana Cost: 2 red, +2 black,+2 green, +2 blue, +2 white
      Transformed = Ob Nixilus, Devourer of Souls 
      Card Type: Legendary Creature -Demon
