SRW T eng-asian version anywhere on any Eshop for the switch yet? i dont wanna miss out on that first run gespy bonus
that's the problem with switch
there is no asian eshop like singaporean or other PSN, as far I know at least.
as far I know people just get dlcs for asia english releases via JP eshop, that's also why quite a few JP releases have English option.
so technically there is a chance perfect sound edition will have English text
therefore can't really help you, sorry.

Many people that love Re are Triggerfags. Those guys are easily recognisable because they claim only the first OVA is great while the rest is disposable because muh Imaishi
>there are reasons to like Re and Detective Nat-chan that don't include being a yurifag
True. And I never said you can't like "Re:" for those reasons. (I myself like it, though not as much as other adaptations.)
But there is a good potion of people who like it for nothing but the yuri. The same people who like nothing in this franchise but "Re:". Basically, I was talking about those who made the Cutie Honey threads on /u/ when Universe aired. You could find that kind of sentiment over there ... and on /a/ when they came to troll our weekly threads.
If you liked it for sensible reasons, the animation, the design, the style, Anno's themes and approach, that's fine. People who like those things usually refrain from attacking things that are different.
you know, if universe could have gotten a second cour, a little arc about honey's flash mechanism getting busted like at the end of the original manga could have sort of fit as a reason to find a way to extend the device's time limit because jesus fuck the thing was ridiculously short, but i guess they went for a ultraman-like route for it.
it could also give us some jill's reactions, as genet, to honey's nude and failed attempts to transform
also why did the device started to malfunction in the manga? just nagai shenanigans to showcase honey's body?
>also why did the device started to malfunction in the manga?
It didn't. Throughout the whole manga Nagai made it a point that Honey needed energy to transform (or produce objects like clothing). Towards the end of the manga, she had just transformed into a Buddha statue and then into her Tarantula Panther disguise. And who knows what she did between those two. She definitely jumped around a lot.
Long story short: She had used up lots of energy and thus had trouble fully transforming into her Cutie Honey form.

For different reasons, that whole sequence of events wouldn't have worked in Universe. For one thing, Jill was already heavily attracted to Honey without having seen her naked. She also already knew that Kisaragi Honey and Cutie Honey were one and the same, so there was no surprise to be had for her there. And lastly, Universe's finale tried to illustrate its central themes further instead of going for a comedic approach.

>peak Gainax animation
It sure doesn't look like Wings of Mayonnaise to me.

It did have good animation though. The main issue is that each episode having been directed by a different episode really shows , it kind of has a through line, but each director had such a different idea on how to execute it and what to focus on that it became pretty incoherent, stuff one director would focus on would get abandoned by the next one and so on. Honey is at her most bland as a character as well. I don't really like Imaishi's style either, so episode 1 was a bit unpleasant, but that is just me. It was still good.

I prefer Universe for its unique coherent vision and willingness to both really drive home the more insane comedic side of Nagai and his darker more serious and thematically dense side as well. It probably comes together the best as a story in the franchise's history, even if there are some half baked moments like Dragon Panther switching sides. While the animation wasn't amazing, the character designs looked like proper updated Go Nagai designs as well, and it had some interesting visual direction at times, and the body horror segments tended to be really effective, to say nothing of that 10/10 insanely visceral school destruction episode, which was the highlight of anime of that year for me.

Shin is my favorite by far, but damn does Universe ever receive unfair criticism. It was definitely a good entry in the franchise.

Zeta Gundam was the flagship project of Sunrise at the time. Love Live is their main cash cow now.
Animators who could actually draw
Colorists and shading/lighting inkers
Bigger budget
Better designs
Bigger budget than Unicorn?
The action scenes weren't particularly intense or even complex in animation so they spread detail in the dramatic scenes. Modern shows like to blow the budget on big fights and then use lots of cost-saving measures the rest of the time.
Also, more shading tones doesn't mean better art. The shot in the OP would look better without the lightest tone.
IBO, for all its faults, had plenty of this

>I don't think that Earth dulls newtype senses, it's more like you'll have a hard time sending Psyco waves outside of the Earth gravity field.
Are you retarded? That's what the word "dull" means. You aren't able to do something as well as you would normally.
Like how it's harder for newtypes to sense things on Earth. A great example is how Char can't use his newtpe senses at all when he was on Earth (he was super close to the cybernewtype test room in Z and didn't feel anything until he was pretty much right in front of it)
Also isn't Reina from an AU? I'm talking about how newtypes work in UC.
>Amuro being a good pilot =/= him awakening as a newtype.

The movies give him explicit newtype flashes on Earth, even though originally he only awakened when returning to space.

>using the movies as reference
>Amuro stomped Char as soon as he decided to focus on him. Throughout their whole "fight", Amuro was running around helping grunts and trying to stop Axis while Char chased him around and kept trying to attack. Then Amuro decided to turn around and disarmed Char and completely shamed him in melee combat. Char had no chance the entire time.

Not the guy you replied to, but I have always thought this was a ridiculously bad interpretation of the end of CCA. I'm not blaming you personally, because a decent chunk of /m/ believes it, but I don't think it makes as much sense as the idea that it was super close.

One, Amuro is very clearly going all out against Char from the beginning. He's laying traps and using dummies like the wired bazooka, and is surprised when Char dodges them. If he was just purely racing for Axis it would make no sense to be taking the time to lay traps if you were more concerned with getting to Axis.

>Amuro was running around helping grunts and trying to stop Axis

Char actually spends more time engaged grunts during their fight than Amuro does.

>then Amuro decided to turn around and disarmed Char

Char is forced to make a desperation move that leaves him exposed because his beam tomahawk is over powered by Amuro's saber. He also comes literal inches from landing a killing blow on the Nu Gundam seconds before this.

>he was super close to the cybernewtype test room in Z and didn't feel anything until he was pretty much right in front of it
He couldn't sense shit in space too, like on the Moon, when Kamille was trying to get the operation going without him to help Emma or something.
Char is just weak to the point that he was called a newtype wannabe by Scirocco.
>Also isn't Reina from an AU?
Judau's sister.

Oh that's unfortunate

not sure if it's just cropped a little on the sides on the dvd

Tons of it.

Could we get more shows or games with no snowflakes?

Let's list all the non-snowflake productions and discuss this show.

I loved the aspect where armor matters in all mooks and there is no one hit kill or explosions from regular shots unless they are direct hits from a high calibur cannon.

Have we seen other similar M shows?

I could see that the Kingdom's mechs are a bit too specialised and the Empire mechs are more general purpose which wins in numbers. This is like Zeon vs Federation.

Kingdom mechs:

Gard - speed type akin to cavalry, long reach gunlance and shield. Usually piloted by elites

Squire - close range, general purpose, akin to a foot soldier

I have to praise this episode as feeling like Gihren no Yabou video game.

The enemy attacks via an express route when you are so pressed and your main force is still preoccupied somewhere far away, you muster your newly factory made units to battle.

Guard your factory at all costs.
We'll need to see how relevant Verde becomes. It mostly seems like they're just a subfaction within the Empire.
>It mostly seems like they're just a subfaction within the Empire.
No, they clearly state that Verde is the previous kingdom before Soliel and Grandiga.

Naoki is a talented modeler but his design choices are so fucking jarring. I guess schizos that prefer subversion to quality and consistency might like him.

It is LITERALLY Zeta ver Evolve. Naoki didn't come up with the design, he just made a kit of it and won an award for it.
