What is this gun supposed to be? One minute it fires beams, the next it fires kinetic rounds, and then in episode 13 Zechs uses it like a machine gun.

Here's a source:

>Tallgeese: "Thanks to its long barrel and beam firing speed, it can shoot accurately even at long distances. The Leo wields long-range weapons of the same type, but with subtle differences in form."
>Leo: "The same type of long-range weapon equipped by the Tallgeese. It's the only weapon in the Leo's arsenal capable of damaging a Gundanium-armored MS."


It doesn't exactly excuse the dobergun suddenly firing beams when Heero picks one up in a Leo, but it's the best you'll get.

Well, that's one way to account for animation errors innit? Still doesn't explain Zechs machine guns missiles with it though.

Although speaking of episode 13, it's nice to have context for this gif now.
*machine gunning missiles
Just don't think about it, and try to enjoy the ride.

Even though you heard machine gun sound effects, the visual effect were twin wide beams anyway. If you haven't noticed already, you'll soon know that damn near all weapons fire is rendered as vague yellow streaks on screen, except if they're firing missiles or something else that can't be yellow like lasers.
0079 had this issue to an extent as well, but Wing just goes nuts with it. Hell, going nuts seems to be this series main style anyways, so it fits in a way.

Pretty sure in reality stopping all nuclear reactions would cause reality to end instantly. Imagine unstable elements would suddenly become stable. It is like batman's microwave the water mains would actually just end up killing everyone by microwaving everyone.
Anti-ship swords only deal damage when used against a ship.
>if it was the Tannhauser blast why do Positron Cannons suddenly have nuclear level yields when they have never shown and will never again that level of power when on a battleship

The Tannhauser causing a mushroom cloud and enough recoil to force Minerva back is actually a consistant thing and 34 isn't the first or last time we see it. It also happened in 16 and 45 and maybe other's I can't remember.

The tannhauser did create a explosion in episode 18 but it was far smaller and dissipated rather quickly. That might have just been the result of the tannhauser shot being partly neutralized by the Zamza Zah, though.


The shot in episode 45 was definitely massive, though. They actually did reuse part of the stock animation from episode 34 when we see the Minerva in the same frame as the expanding explosion. We don't get to see if there was a mushroom cloud afterward, though.
Considering /m/ was basically a containment board because /a/ was sick of Destiny talk, not much.

Believe it or not, for reasons beyond Netflix I'm trying to update my anime archive, and I can't figure out the best versions of EoE and Death and Rebirth.

I figure 2D4U for the series, I know that's an RX encode from before I fell out of paying attention to anime. But what about EoE? Some people say Commie's is shit, other encodes seem a bit small, etc.

The fuck does one do here?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.

Do you happen to know what's wrong with the Commie subs for EoE? I've seen a post or two claiming a problem, but no further details.
It's a mix of bad translations from whoever originally translated it in the 00's and a lot of bad fan translations. The commie subs were built off a bad foundation basically
where would one acquire these if he already downloaded an HD rip of EoE, by chance?
the manga
I've seen some guys complain at Sephirotic's release here.

I'm pretty sure that Sephirotic put a lot of effort too. In fact he'd come here daily to talk about the process and the results. Whether if that makes it better than 2D4U, I don't know.

So guys I've been really REALLY interested in the Kamen Rider series as a big fan of power armors, guyver, power rangers and super robot animes. There are a lot of series tho I'm looking forward to watching them all the problem is im going to work and gym so i have around 3-4 free hours a day max.
So lets get to the point...
Can u guys list me the kinda best series overall in a top 10 or just a list ot 10 so i can get into the series and watch the rest when i have more time?

he did link it. clearly he's saying he's the faggot. he indicated the time "now" and the only post at that time is his.
Welp. Mystery solved. Guess that's /thread.
what's your favorite rider /m/? as in, the character beneath the suit? I've noticed I really gravitate to series with strong and unique leads and I'm having trouble with older heisei stuff since most of them fit into the ideal mold of most super heroes.
OOO. Kamen Rider OOO is my personal recommendation for how to get into the series. a lot of what makes kamen rider fun is seeing how each series plays with the tropes and traditions, but it can be a bit boring to go back to the older stuff since it's slower and more about week to week stuff. OOO is a faster, modern series that plays most of the traditional stuff straight while also doing a lot of it exceptionally well, giving you a good vantage point going forward.
faiz so you can learn what genuine rage is, then W -> OOO -> Fourze so you don't end up killing yourself

Cross Rays SEA English release due out sometime in August (per Play Asia)

In the meantime, I have picked up the SEA English release of GENESIS that I never really played much of when it released

On a side note, anyone think we will get an ELS 00 Qan[T] as a crazy post game suit similar to Dark History Turn A in Overworld?
It'll be Snow White.
Considering we're getting voiced Heine, they seem to be going nuts to make up for just 4 universes.
I don't know how I would feel about that.

I'm super hype cause 00 and Wing are my fav Gundams so I hope to see suits and chars that have never gotten anything before.
Someone on gamefaqs claims it won't be out till November. Their friend attended a closed door Bamco event.

I can't find a substantial list in English dedicated to all the many Nadesico mecha (not even Pixel Galaxy) so lets make internet history and make a thread dedicated to pointing out, describing, and posting pics. I'll even link the Japanese wikipedia article.


Time for mecha lists!

PG calls it A for some raisin. Your titular ship at the 298m length and 106.8 meter height. Y-Unit sold separately.
Big Nadesico, what ep did this appear in?
Railgun Nadesico, something about death in combat.
Nadesico that likely got smashed off screen for implying Shaq yucked it up.

I was hoping more people would be posting. The Ryusei Booru has a lot of Nadesico mecha art.
Infected Nadesico? Not infected Aestis?
Or I could be wrong..did recall seeing an Aesti with bugs on them in SRW that one time.
That was Devil Aestivalis and it did show up in an episode.

So what exactly is the difference between this and the OVAs?
That would appear to be the front cover of the blu-ray container for the OVAs.
There is no difference, aside from OP / ED and cut down for TV.

What Showa Rider shows should I watch?

The contention was Black was darker than the preceding series, which is demonstrably false no matter how much mud monkeys try to force it out of their own ignorance.
Kindly move all of the racial nonsense here >>17564959 - a thread died because some twonk made that, so at least make the sacrifice worth it and cock off over there.
What the hell
are Hongo and Hayato supposed to be gay
Well, technically the only child death was from that group of children who were actually trained adults under some experiment that make them not age.

heard a rumor on here that at least the first one will be shown at the Paris Japan Expo. Tomino is a guest there this year, so it seems likely.

We're also getting 10 minute clip of Eva 3.0+1.0 there. It'll be July 4-7, look for news after.

How come EVA units can't fly? It's bad enough that they look really ugly and skinny unlike other cool robots in other anime but not being able to fly on top of that?

Funny you ask anon, I checked amazon yesterday to see if there was an English release and looks like vol1 is coming out at the end of October, the 29th if I'm remembering correctly.
Probably going to get it myself, the designs look cool.

rebuild 2

Applying some real physics (loose as they are), Evas are flatly not aerodynamic, and weigh at least at least several hundred tons. However, these things are capable of flight... in a roundabout way. Such as the transport in the pic. The MP units cheat in a way, owing to the enormous wing size and what I always head canoned as a modified AT field usage, which would certainly explain Kaworu's version of hello in Rebuild.

Regarding aesthetics... well it's not exactly an uncommon opinion I'm afraid. Mecha on the gundam end of the spectrum evoke an almost Knightly design, while others go for some variety of reasonable, practical layout, to something that looks cool and little else. Eva on the other hand (as far as my shitty memory can carry me) was purposely designed to invoke a measure of uncanny valley, and to throw a middle finger towards toy companies.

There is not enough discussion on this little manga gem.

Has anyone read it, what's your take on it?

I think the political idea and revolutionary methodology of this title is way ahead of its time (false flag attack, CGI photoshop of real photos, fake news, the protagonist faction wants to rule the world...)

Please, explain how?
Why? The actual plot is what makes it interesting.
How is it /pol/ posting? Is criticizing Israel basically non-kosher now?

No, its there, just misnumbered.
