So, in the end what happened to Vifam as a franchise? I mean, the series seems to have been popular enough to get four OVAs, two of them in a time when OVAs where not yet a popular practice, and a remake in late 90's. But nothing more after the start of the new millennium. We hardly even hear about it.

What could have possibly caused the abandon of such apparently popular serie? Was the series just a cult hit? Or was the death of director Takeyuki Kanda that caused Sunrise to refrain for touching the series again?
I’ve heard that the remake was bad. They never did seem to move past the story of the kids though, and really that is what Vifam is about, that group of characters growing up through that particular journey, I doubt a sequel or side story involving new characters or a story showing the kids grown up or something would really be able to have the same impact.
Not everything needs to be a fucking franchise.
Who gives a shit the characters sucked and the villain just inexplicably “I got over my problems lel” in the OVA

>"heard good things a lot so can deal with this"

>start fighting with boredom all of sudden

Things like this doesnt do well for the autistic zoomer like me. great show anyway. If it was made in 2018, its gonna be filled with lots of sexual tension.

A dark comedy/kaiju eiga about two brothers set in the 1960s showa timeline.

Uehara is a down on his luck, impulse yakuza member who has fallen out of favor with his boss and owes his own gang a lot of money.

When Godzilla and Rodan are spotted in the city limits to inevitably battle each other, Uehara convinces his younger brother Taku; a suicidal methamphetamine addict, to rob the IBJ, the largest bank in Tokyo, taking advantage of the fact that law enforcement will be too preoccupied with evacuating citizens.

However Uehara's boss dispatches some of his hitmen to take him out, and to make matters worse, the space monster King Ghidorah appears and ravages the city. Larvae Mothra also appears.

The two brothers' already ridiculous plan turns into a life and death battle to escape with the money and deal with the yakuza thugs, al while trying to suvive the titanic battle between King Ghidorah and the other monsters.

The film is set during the same time as the film "Ghidorah, the three-headed monster"

potential interesting use of politics yet kaiju taking any nations side unless is retarded unless they are controlled cyborgs or mecha. no greenlight
Terrible. I don't like drugs but anti-drug preaching has no place in a kaiju film. and the "secret" naval group makes no sense. No greenlight

>stopped allies from getting killshots on Vagans but doing nothing to save those same allies with his magical pacifism funnels

Starting from the FX's debut, Kio has exactly one scene of blocking an allied shot, and it was aimed at a Vagan pilot he'd already disabled. He doesn't even interfere with Seric later on during the action when they were side-by-side; Kio disables his target, Seric shoots his, it's Seric that ponders how long Kio will continue fighting like this; Kio says nothing about Seric's kill. To add, Kio's disables are actual disables, instead of just shooting an arm, a head, or a rifle off.

With regards to Kio, they then move on to La Gramis, and it mostly repeats itself like the moonbase battle; Kio fights alongside Federation forces, disables some mooks, gets temporarily successful with Deen in a 1-on-1 with no one else involved while it went on, and then gets tangled by enemy ace and special units and doesn't engage anymore mooks in battle. That the Vagans vape most of the faceless Feds with a fuckoff cannon had nothing to do with Kio, seeing as nobody on the Federation side knew of it or were close enough to stop it prior.

Age knows what kind of action and drama scenes they want, but the series' writing is fucking terrible -emphasis on "fucking terrible"- at the required effort to set them up. Asemu's "super pilot", Shaunala's betrayal, Girad's "tragic defection", and the infamous Lu arc are the biggest examples that lose a lot of their impact because they either had the wrong buildup or zero buildup.
>he was left to die by the Feds (who declared him MIA while salvaging the AGE System)
They can't recover a person who wasn't even at the scene when they arrived.

I don't agree that he committed outright treason either, but all he did in over a decade's worth of time was to raid ships. As far as anyone knows, he never even attempted reaching out to Flit, the one person least likely to be pro-Vagan, nor any other form of outreach in the expanded materials. Nobody benefits because while the Vagans didn't get traitor supplies and personnel, there was also zero chance of loyalist Feds using the information to set up their own sting ops or at least work with the pirates to stop wasting supplies and possibly the lives of unsuspecting loyalists mixed in the crew during the pirate purges. Had Asemu's return to the story been a "to fool your enemies, first fool your friends" affair where he had some kind of cooperative link with the Federation, even just as an info broker on the ships he hit, his actions would have made sense as some kind of dagger-under-the-table; but as it is in the series, at best, he's a non-allied third party whose actions bring coincidental benefits.

Meanwhile, Kio's short stint sees him participate in 3 major Federation operations and other battles, doesn't defect despite his ideals, and his "pacifist disables", of which he only applies to himself and never disparage or hinder his allies for not following, are meticulous enough to reduce his enemies to complete non-factors within the scope and context of the ongoing local operation/conflict, unlike a certain other "shoot-to-disable" pilot for which the color orange causes him to forget that MS have mounted weapons.

To put dadAsemu on a higher pedestal than Kio solely because of the latter's pacifist moralfagging is silly, especially when the Asemu generation arc is already low-tier at trying to develop Asemu and the rushed-as-fuck Kio generation arc does almost nothing to help.

Zanscare is the faction that took the phrase "if it's stupid and it works, it's not stupid" to it's logical conclusion.
Why did she think that would work?

Even if driving had returned, its historic fatality rate hadn't to the public conciousness.

Gonna drop this like a thief in the dead of night and then jet. I just started Gundam from the very beginning. I came up with Toonami and saw Wing. Always wanted to watch more. Now that I've got more disposable money, I'm buying the entire series, minus that CG one. Igloo I think it's called? Just wanted to say I'm on ep 38 of 0079 and I fucking love it. I've caught the bug, man, and I can't wait to start Zeta.

There's a reason 0079 shows you the colony drop before introducing the main character

Not him, but yes. The opening prologue for the first dozen or so episodes shows the colony drop; though lacking any real detail, beyond that at least one happened. Which is shown before cutting to Amuro in the first episode.
Pretty much this. Nukes were the one thing the Feds had going for them until they got Mobile Suits mass-produced.
everyone ITT is retarded, except me.

In IBO, mobile suits can use the Booster Units equipped behind them while grounded to glide over the ground, similar to how a skater would over ice. To achieve this, the Booster propels the suit at a horizontal angle slightly downard, pushing the feet of the suit along. However, to achieve this the feet of a mobile suit would need to be smooth, or dynamic enough to be able to smoothly brush over the rough terrain of battlefields. Many of the suits in IBO use feet with raised heels and sharp toes, pointed at a downward forward angle. This would be highly ineffective for movement like this unless the material used in mobile suit frames was strong enough to withstand the friction and pressure from a live mobile suit dashing and strafing with little to no struggle.
Let's take the UGY-R41 Landman Rodi for example. We can clearly see during the nameless war arc that a regular Landman Rodi equipped with the Alaya-Vijnana System can produce maneuvers that almost rival the Barbatos. The toe and heel of a Landman Rodi are tall and raised but have angled edges, so sliding along obstacles like rocks and rubble wouldn't be impossible. Next, let's find out how much punishment these heels and toes would be taking.
According to the Gundam Wiki, a Man Rodi, the original suit our example is based on, weighs about 40.2 tonnes. We'll use this weight since the only changes made to the Landman Rodi are slight modifications to the leg armor, and the color palette.

Solid weapons instead of particle beams, you mean. Lasers would actually be very effective against nanolaminate, given that it's stated to break down under high heat and lasers deal damage entirely by heating the surface of the target.
Fighter jets are as long as MS are tall, but they're much thinner. The volume is nowhere close.
Fighter jets are also made of aluminium and plastic and can't withstand .50BMG hits.
400 tons seems about right for a 18 meters tall combat vehicle.
can you stop posting this shit fanart in every thread
speaking of which The way nano laminate reacts against the beam weapon is odd.. It does not ever touch the armor, almost as if there is some magnetic field emanating from it making it refract.
Ahab Wave/Particle effect and maybe some of the NL Armor evaporating/abating off the surface and forming a cloud of interfering particles, maybe.
