if he kills himself then he guarantees he won't get it.
Those generally apply to thunderbolt as well. It's just an issue of animation, execution, budget and performance, all of which g-saviour failed at.

It failed so hard that it became an iconic meme that people unironically keep alive because the concept and designs could still be salvaged in the right animation studio's blistered hands. That's pretty much what everyone's waiting for. We all just want a G-saviour reboot anime that saves the title and validates it's existence.
isn't that ultimately bandai's fault? g-saviour didn't fail gundam/bandai, bandai failed g-saviour. it's not zaido level bad (took the licensing money and just declared it an AU before it even aired) but still careless.

My first love and kinds decided my preference for women for life.
Ha, gay.
I always like Asuka the most. I think it's that she actually tries to fight past all the suck, even if it's mostly to maintain her ego and superior facade. All the other main characters just seemed to have this passivity to everything, just gloomily slogging through. Her being utterly broken had more impact than anything in Shinji's whole story.
>Gendo finds a boy in a city ravaged by Second Impact and adopts him, manipulating the young lad to be the pilot for EVA 01 after his own say (Who may or may not have been Shinji) was killed piloting it in a confrontation with Adam.

Boom, Whitewashing issue sold. Its also something Gendo would do.

Love me some Mortar Headd, but Gothicmade is pretty sweet too.
Kinda wish there were more designers trying new type of mechas instead of following formula and slapping a stylish skin (not that I dislike those).

If you wanted to have an actual debate about this show then I'd be all ears, but all you've said is "But at least it's better than (Unrelated show)" while asserting that as some sort of undisputed fact. You've yet to explain why you believe Pilot Candidate would be considered "meh", or give reasons as to why the shows you've listed before are bad. Since you're not explaining yourself I see no reason to give a response other than a simple "No".

I like the fact that she was made a literal catgirl due to some critical accident that required she get cat ears to regain hearing, or something. And everyone else just fucking accepts it.
The blue one is barely even trying to hide that it's just Layzner with tits
I remember it, and I keep being reminded of it because Macross Frontier and Knights of Sidonia are very similar to this series. It's quite an interesting prototype in the sense that it's what they might've looked like if they were made in the 2001s.
>the stupid mangaka herself ended up with major writer's block and never finished the series.
No, she never finishes anything. She just somehow gets serialized and has good sales numbers for her manga. Her biggest hit is DNAngel and even that's not a complete story 13 years after it started.

Is Honkai Impact /m/?
3 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
It's very generous with gacha and has a way more complex combat system than most action mobile games, but I still never really cared for it after playing it. The combat seems very shallow to me and getting OP gear super early makes the game a cakewalk for a while. It never felt like I was going into levels with a plan or a strategy about how to fight the enemies, instead it was just an unga bunga fest for me. Never really got invested in the characters or the world they're in either, and since I'm not a yurifag most of the cast being lesbian does nothing for me. I'm happy we have mobile games like this now, but it just never really clicked with me.
The most fun way to play is by relying on parries to start your offense. It's possible to face mash every enemy and chug potions until you win, but it's much more satisfying to time a perfect evade and then dump supers during the time slow.
The parry system is great, but I usually forget it exists because face mashing everything is so effective. I have to actively force myself to use it and the only thing I get from it is the satisfaction of wiping the screen of enemies.

I just finished the manga and thought it was pretty rad, but I'm scared of 98 episodes and the 27 other iterations in this franchise.

Where should I go from here?

>Is the story in the original anime the most classic lauded version of it?
There are manga elements that never showed up in the original TV series, and others that were changed (such as how Juzo Kabuto looks).
>Is the story in the original anime the most classic lauded version of it? Will I need to know how that one goes to appreciate the new anime?

Unlike something like Getter, the Mazinger anime wasn't really that intrinsically different from the manga. The script is completely different, but all the main plot beats are still there (only with tons of extra monster of the week and then some arcs in the 2nd half of the series). You also get actual introductions stuff like the Boss Borot.

The biggest influence the anime carries over to future works that you wouldn't get from reading the manga aside from various anime-only mecha beasts is Sayaka and Kouji fighting rather constantly, unlike in the original manga.

Shin Mazinger completely ignores anything from the Toei anime though.
Shut up spic

Tomino doesn't need to prove nothing.
with Gundam 0079 , Zeta , CCA and Turn A is enough to prove that he made good mecha related series
Xabungle proves that he can do comedy
Dunbine proves that he can do fantasy mecha

so at this point doesn't need to prove nothing.
did he make shitty series? yes , but at this time of his life G-reco is more a whim than anything else.
nice one pal
G-Reco suffered from having really ADHD pacing, so the idea was to fix it by stretching it out
It doesn't even matter because greco is irrelevant.
>Zeta, CCA and dunbine
All shit, 0079 is fine but narrative-wise it's nothing special and the ending is just a mess that had to be rewritten for the 3rd movie
terrible comedy from him as per usual

Turn A is really his only good show I've seen and the only one where his directorial style isn't absolute ass.

Work has been keeping me preoccupied. I have the series, but I have to be careful I don't burn myself out by watching too many episodes of any show in one sitting, or I will never get back to it.
It's also quite episodic, not the kind of series you binge watch.
I binge watch it.

>Megumi had a cool beam sword but faggot ass Hana refused to have one because "it's not the Precure she wants to be"

>Symphogear doesn't have interesting villians

It honestly does, but it rather consistenly waits for the last two episodes of the season to make all the dots connect.
>i don't want girls in frilly dresses that "totally is power armor you guys" by pure technicality.

Symphogear is a skin-tight polymer undersuit bolstered with literal metal armor plating, where later seasons explicitly show during transformation sequences all the moving mechanical parts.

The armor has fucking hidden compartments for some of the weaponry and in other occasions folds out or otherwise transforms to become attached weaponry like cannons or missile launchers.

Symphogear is a show where it really *is* powered armor.

The show itself also doesn't attempt to hide its power-level and heritage either. Mecha-homages a plenty:

One of the characters literally expies Heavy Arms Custom, Gundam DX, Turn A Gundam and Freedom's Meteor in just season 1; adding more in later seasons.

The finale of season 2 did GaoGaiGar's Hell & Heaven and the finale of season 3 did Shin Mazinger's Big Bang Punch.

I never said that it wasn't power armor, and like i previously stated my problem doesn't lie in technicalities laid out in supplementary materials or side dialogue.
Let me say it like this.
When i see "generic power armor/giant robot" swinging around a heavy weapon or casually ripping through something it works because there is an element of bulk and weight to the design, or one can tell that the limb performing the action is through and through a powerful machine.
but this broad design philosophy is almost always in conflict with the goals of mahou shoujou and mecha musume, where the appeal is more on the expressiveness of the character and their attractiveness. This results in the armor often having to be skin tight or exposing all the time.

Chris bounce still does things for me though
Well. The problem here is your post implied you think Symphogear to be in looks some kind of Precure knock-off where the outfits are only mechanical "because the show says so", which isn't the case
You're free to dislike it, but you could've worded said dislike a little better
