Welcome to the Coppelion discussion thread.
Come here to chat about the latest episodes, the characters, plot, or the series in general.

Genre: Action, Sci-fi
Produced by: GoHands
Plot: The story is set in 2036, after radioactive contamination from a nuclear accident has put Tokyo under a blockade. Three high school girls have been sent to this dead city. Thanks to genetic engineering, the three girls have been impervious to radioactivity since birth. They form a special forces unit, codenamed "Coppelion," in the 3rd Division of Japan's Ground Self-Defense Force.

To-Do List

Here's a list of things we want to do in the wiki, why not help cross some of them off? Also feel free to make suggestions.

  • Create manga and franchise page.
  • Help add images and summaries to episode pages.

Important Pages

When editing the wiki (particularly episode and volume pages) it's helpful to use this section as a reference guide.

Locations
When adding locations, don't forget to add parent locations. For example, when adding Japan to an episode or volume, Earth should also be added. Locations appearing in flashback sequences generally don't count.
Recurring Pages:
Objects
Objects should be specific rather than general, like Natsu's Scarf instead of just Scarf or Purgatory Armor instead of Plate Armor. General objects are being removed from the wiki.
Recurring Objects:
Concepts
Common: Humans, Flashback

How did you find such a good video? I was searching it this morning. I remember getting only Daily Motion vids.

Recall hearing of this series getting an anime adaptation a few years back, but guessing the Japanese earthquake from 2011 forced production on it to get delayed.

Regardless, the premise for this interests me enough to check out the series next month.

@Dream: After the Fukushima Dai-Ichi plant melted down, the plot suddenly became a little too dramatic for Japan's taste.

I need to get back on this show. I do a marathon on it.

Sigh this show has a great characture anime style in the drawn look. Then some color blind fool has to tint things that do not need a haze effect.When their in radiation zones it makes a little sence but when their inside clean areas or even the capaital where theirs no radiation. Its shuch a distraction.

I mean its not like they have a excuse for it.It is totaly random an nonsenceical.They are not hiding bad animation with it so its just anoying.Stil like the show.Can see why they had reservations about showing it.

Ok looking up on the posts in this thread i have bitched about it one other time so ill try not to again.

Up to 10 dont regret watching .But the color hue saturation is suposed to repreisent radiation.They screw it up a few times but places with the most radion / conatamination are like that.Overal story doesnt feel fluid .Few shows i start an go back a episode to make sure i didnt skip a show or something.

@Marshal Victory:

The hue saturation was the same level with K. Don't know how they represent radiation besides having clouds. Radiation is invisible to the human eye. I'm going do a marathon on this show. Unbreakable Machine Doll made me curious. For this show, it didn't hook me.

If you need me to bump, I'll be glad to bump it for you.

@takashichea: Apreciate it.

K had little ryme or reason to the saturation .More as a design ( tho arguably poor one) choice.With Coppelion when they are by polution or radiation levels are high i think this is a representation of that. the only place it didtn fit was i think they tried to use heat red at the capitol.Its still agrivating an a distraction to such great anime art style.Seriously the characters feel like they steped right out of a well drawn manga /comic.

Coppelion is worth a watch just its not where i feel it could be.Worse thing watching anime is projecting where a show should go.It could have been right up there with Attack on Titan.But even as serious as it looks at times its lighter hearted than Unbreakable Machine Doll.Even with the runing doll wants sex gag.

12 had huge saturation out the yang .But it was a decent episode.Adding this show to my averae an bove list in spite of the saturation.

Bump for Marshal since he hit 2 posts. I still need to watch this series. Come to think of it, I didn't K either. Still, Coppelion's artwork is beautiful, but it is too much hue saturation. Nagi's artwork is way beautiful than Coppelion.

@takashichea: Thanks just seen 13 an the end of the season.Have to say over all it wasnt bad. But it was not great either. so many problems with the hue became a distraction.An story line fell apart at times.I it gets a just barely above average from me an makes the list.Long as i dont think to hard on the wasted character designs hide under than hue an saturation.
