I am not home so you get a tablet comment.
Of course because nothing good can be achieved without massive amounts of human suffering, good to see you keepin in realistic Neorice
But what makes the sea so dangerous to swim in?
I don't think we'll find out for a very long while. My guess is that someone will have to swim in it to avoid certain death, and all will be revealed.
Also, WHY WAS BURK FALLING FROM THE SKY???
@Bisected Probably due to pollutants from either the construction, or just the city itself.
Tobi displays a disturbing lack of concern about the purple shimmering water that she has been explicitly told not to touch...
Maybe all those dungeons were, in fact, not good for her survival instincts. Seeing how they were usually just hard enough to challenge her (except that last disastrous time, where they bit off more than they could chew and some of the others were kind of suicidally rush and careless), I can see why. I'm not sure she is used to how easy it is to die in the real world.
I don't understand why didn't Eugene warn her... Maybe he thought that her first instinct after seeing something like that wouldn't be to swim in it...
By the way, judging by the buildings, it seems the water isn't too deep.
Maybe it's cola. It has damaging properties, but most importantly by swimming there you would be damaging intellectual property.
I see what you're getting at, very clever but if that was the case then I think the buildings that broke should have fallen from the sky too.
I would assume that the water is magically purifying everything that comes into contact with it - and purifying means to remove everything organic.
That would explain why the sewer doesn't make the water smell - and I would guess that the old geezer is fishing all sorts of metals that get flowed in as part of organic wastes.
I am curious if three is going to carry Tobi through the waters or if that would also troubling him.
I do hope the workers were highly paid people who knew the risks they were taking.
