Cut to beastman.
I have a bad feeling about this...
Tobi's value just ratcheted up several pegs.
"Human beings with human values"
If as the police man put it 'basic decency' is a human value then you can put yourself in that category mister.
Also, looks like people are going to be VERY interested in Tobi soon. Looks like the junkman was right about Tobi's 'gift'.
Like Tobi doesn't have a big enough bullseye on her back...
How'd Fox know that?
I don't think Tobi has examined a Magilante device in front of Fox... the bomb wasn't a Magilante device, right?
I wonder to what extent Tobi actually understands advanced technology?
When she was introduced, it looked like a lot of her abilities (and her community members') were activated like in a video game, rather than being skills that the player had themself. Abilities like that wouldn't imply her really knowing anything about technology.
But the same chapter showed her constantly working to invent new things, which implies that there are intellectual components to what she can do.
So it seems like there're two cases here:
1. Her understanding is partially video-game-like and partially intellectual.
2. Her understanding is purely intectual, and enhancements from video-game-rewards effectively transformed her mind.
The basic issue is that the ability to understand advanced technical issues isn't some external power that can be gained/lost, but rather it tends to require a person's basic modes of thinking to undergo transformations in how they function. So if Tobi's understanding was augmented by video-game-powers while she's still fully intellectually aware of what's going on, that'd imply that her very mind has been reshaped by the alien forces that gifted her with her abilities.
Aaaaand Tobi's in trouble again.
Also, I'm still waiting for that Chekhov's gun in the hippo painting room.
<3 yellow "mr smile" guy.
Bea is best wingman. Tobi will get sooo much attention after this!
It looks like Tobi has spent many years training in steampunk-style magic tool invention. She uses the meta-game 'scanning' ability to see the inner workings of a device without needing to take it apart, but her own intelligence to actually understand what each component does.
Yes, Levin. Some of you are psychopaths, who are like other species than humans. More like vampires or evil robots when it comes to their "values".
I'm wondering if Tobi is actually from Magilante.
Tobi's in trouble.
Don't forget that Video Game skills are typically meant to be abstractions of actual abilities.
So they do in fact imply some sort of understanding of the thing. We can't necessarily tell if it is intellectual or instinctual, but she "gets" magilante tech somehow.
