The universe of the last anime you watched has now been invaded by baters.
How fucked are they?

Not that much.

I'm currently 32 episodes into Gundam SEED so answer yourself... but I think SEEDers are fucked over

They don't stand a chance against the power of wide.

>>100543189
>Nobunaga the Fool

Depends on how powerful the MC's mech is. Haven't seen its full power/potential yet. If he's pushing super robot status by the end of it then the Baiters are right fucked. Plus they already have energy based weaponry and orbital bombardment capability so they might be fucked anyway.

Have you read the vn?
>>
>Arpeggio
Haha, time for lasers disco party.
>>
The thing about baiters that most people forget is that in two weeks they adapt to fuck over whatever gets thrown at them. Lasers were something specifically developed to counter humanity's dependency on air superiority. Unless the entire threat is wiped out in two weeks it doesn't matter how advanced or powerful the world is unless it's just something absolutely insane.

They'll be fine.

>High School DxD
As long as Issei has a steady supply of girls, they will be fine. Even more so if they kill one of his friends

No, the Counter Force of Gaia is the one in charge to deal with alien threats. But then, Arc would probably end up causing more damage than the Beta, so eh.
>>
>>100545929
It's what the counter force does. It saves humanity, but not in a way that can be considered pretty or "humane". It would gladly sacrifice half of humanity to preserve the other half. It only cares about the continued existence of humans. How that comes about isn't really its problem.

You're only thinking of the Counter Force of humanity. There are two Counter Forces. Alaya's and Gaia's. Alaya derives from Gaia and protects humanity while Gaia protects Earth itself.

I actually can't remember, I know they follow a hierarchy of targets

You guys are fucking stupid and paid no fucking attention to the VN at all, you should be ashamed of yourselves.

The BETA are not a fucking military force, they are purely mining machines, who were repurposed for AA defense due to humans curb stomping them early on with airplanes due to the fact that....you know, BETA can't fly.

If the BETA were dropped into a word like SnK, they never would have repurposed laser class and wouldn't have wasted the resources to produce late-hive stage beta, because well...there's no fucking planes.

TSF's were produced as a result of laser class, not the other way around. Laser class were produced as a result of planes, before that, there were no laser class on Earth.
>>100547024
And no, lasers would not target fucking humans, laser class beta are really resource intensive, they wouldn't waste resources making them just to shoot some people down when fucking tank class beta can jump high as fuck and swat anyone out of the air that isn't a high altitude bomber.
>>
>FLCL
Well, things got crazier
>>
>>100546344
I guess Gaia would trigger then. The Earth doesn't want to become a barren wasteland stripped of all life that ain't BETA. It created Primate Murder, I wonder what monster it would create to deal with the Baiters.
>>
>chuunibyou
I really, really hope their chuuni abilities suddenly started to work IRL. So they can have some fun before death.
>>
>>100547516
>>100546628
Not they just have a new type of mob to deal with
>>
>>100547900
The BETA wouldn't even bother fighting the humans unless they got in their way. The humans do not have any silicon based machines, which they regard as living beings, not carbon based life forms
>>
>>100548351
Shows what you know. They're mining machines, and the humans are like moving resource nodes. They'd "mine" us like we mine Gold and Coal. They wouldn't ignore us, they just wouldn't focus on us until we started to get in their way. They adapted to deal with the pesky little balls of Carbon and H20 constantly impeding their mining and meeting the quota they've been programed to meet.

So no matter what ya do, it's either fight to the bitter end or lay down and die. There is no third option unless you have a silicon based lifeform to negotiate with the Primary Hive Overlord. And he's not gonna be convinced easily. They tried to reason with it with what little time they had, it wasn't having Takeru's logic.
>>
>>100547900
>Laser class were produced EARLY as a result of planes, before that, there were no laser class on Earth.
FTFY
Lasers are still part of mining operations. In case of SnK invasion they'd be still used to break the walls if the magical titan crystals would be too much for Destroyers to handle.
>>
>>100548543
Considering they systematically go through and mine the entire surface of the earth humans would eventually get it their way. They wouldn't go out of their way to crush them. Why go out of your face to fight something that you don't even perceive to be a threat? The entire reason they targeted the airplanes first was because they had the most processing power. Or did you not get that? "Shows what you know"
>>
LOGH. They'll be fine, both the Empire and the Alliance can lose a million ships without that really changing anything, so the BETA are fucked.
>>
>>100544354
Except Japan is one of the best at horror nowadays.
>>
So as someone who has only seen the NIPPON STRONG anime, can someone explain to me what the BETAs are exactly?
>>
>>100548214
The True Ancestors.
>>
>>100548885
Or they could just nuke the entire planet the BETA were on.
>>
>>100548992
That would reveal a lot of spoilers. If you plan on reading the VN you shouldn't ask that question
>>
>>100548983
Japan is probably one of the better countries at surreal horror, although Russia comes out on top.
>>
>>100548796
The planes weren't real threats until they started dropping bombs and killing mining machines. Not that they can't be recycled, but it's a pain in the ass for them. Needless waste of time you see. And they just kept doing it. The things causing the most damage seemed to have this stuff inside them (i.e. processing power and computers).

So obviously, eliminating it from the field was of top priority to maximize mining efficiency. The less of the stuff it had, the less of a threat it was. Humans "on foot" are targeted primarily because they are carbon and H20 rich with several trace elements within. We're like a rich ore to them. So the Soldier class class and other small BETA prioritize us if in the same room. Or if we start shooting, as that moving ball of resource goodness is getting in the way of maximum mining efficiency.
>>
>>100543189
Nobunagun is already fighting Beta
>>
Last thing I watched was episode 175 of Fairy Tail... I'm pretty sure the Betas will be wiped out in just a few days time.

Even if they land in places other than Fiore, they'll have to contend with other magical superheroes, like in Rave Master.

I can see it now... Natsu thinks the fort class thingy is a dragon and goes apeshit on it because it won't talk to him...

Zeref and Acnologia could also take out a shit ton at once...

The only thing we're really shown them adapting to outright is diversionary tactics and aircraft. And the aircraft they already had lasers. Otherwise they don't actually adapt that much. Grapplers didn't start wearing armor after years of being shot to death, Heavy Lasers didn't start shooting down stuff in orbit after years of stuff coming down from orbit to try and kill them, they didn't deploy a Fan-class to blow away heavy metal clouds, etc.

>As for if Shiki could kill them, not sure, might not have Earth's concept of death
This stupid misconception is still making its rounds?

It's never really been stated outright in canon that you need a 'concept of death' under 'Gaia' to be vulnerable to Death Perception. That's just people taking something the angel said and running with it.

Once again. This. Shit. Does. Not. Exist.

It's a bastardized mix of what VV said about the common sense of Types and ORT's description.

ORT's description about not being killable by MEoDP was nowhere near what VV said. People just mixed two different things together and voila, Gaian concept of death. VV only said that Ultimate Ones do not follow the logic of Gaia. That does not mean they don't die in a certain way. They only do that because they have different mindsets, especially since none of them have humans that live on their worlds.

There has never been even one writing from Nasu that purports to a Gaian concept of death. All that is a bunch of idiots mixing up what VV said to ORT's description.
