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.


Please explain how the plot falls apart in the end and how characters are all shit?

So answer the question. Was that post about "fat" or "weight"?

Apparently it was going to be a zombie musical, but Nakashima said nobody but Imaishi would have agreed to it.
I honestly don't get why everyone shits on imiashi so hard. I really enjoy his stuff and love his really extreme angles and strong inclination towards creating shapes for better dynamic range in motion than simply staying on model. Alot of people seem to hate him for the exact same reason, but it's treated like it's 'lazy'. I just don't really get it.
Looks like this was successful(they got sever issues with how fast tickets sold out) and it's getting extended at this cinema and some others
Might be a cult hit in japan so it's interesting to observe
Based on this, it seems like it's garnered a lot of devoted fans who are watching/rewatching it every week.

When I was a kid the first Macross variable I had was a small no name knock-off that was solid blue and red. I have never been able to find one like it.
I have one of these but I got the blue one. Figured since it had more Exia parts on it than anything else might as well get it in the right color

Now is the best time to go enjoy lesser known late 90s and early 00s mecha/kaiju/sci fi works and save yourself from the current flood of cringe-posting.

Go watch Neo-Ranga anon.

It has cute girls, cool kaiju and mecha, and is littered with interesting social commentary that doesn't take itself too seriously. It has a good mix of comedic and serious elements. At times the animation gets really great as well.

Previous thread: >>17225538

Progress: All stages done, I'm translating the epilogue right now. After that I'll do the save/quit cutscenes, do the textures that are still missing (mostly stage title screens and location names) and give the whole thing a QC pass. AI is working miracles with the MC name entering screen and other technical stuff that I can't handle.

We might have a release of some kind soon, stay tuned.

Based OM
Just as a quick update from myself, I've been somewhat stuck in work hell the last few days. Once I get the time, plans are to try and fix up the Menu Text Editor so that's not a limiting factor for further library translations any more, then try to get the first iteration of the UI stuff out for folks after.

Cool! I can probably see about cross-referencing if there's anything I wasn't using on this end here, and looking into generating a test patch for folks to try once most of the necessary things are smoothed out. We can worry about putting it out to RHDN or anywhere for a wider test after confirming that sure.
Keep on movin...
I just realized that I can continue to work on the library by looking at the raw add02dat from the original ISO, which opens in the editor just fine, and keeping the translations ready to go in a txt so I can just paste them in once you get me an update. So there's no rush with that really.
Still ain't ideal though admittedly, and I'm seeing where exactly things broke here at the moment. From a cursory glance, it looks like each translated entry adds in slightly more data than intended, so every new one done slowly makes it bigger than intended. Once that hits a certain point, the file just breaks then.

I'll probably also see about doing a quick pass over the items/spirits/descriptions in there while I'm at it as well, so they read a bit more naturally. Just need to confirm the widest space they appear in visually when I do that just.

And they are step siblings... And not in that creepy way that all manga/anime/hentai do now... She's pissed at him and wanted to show up him by becoming better.

Valkyria is both, though. Her Guyver Unit was made by Cronos by reverse-engineering one of the originals. It causes migraines and nausea, can only be used in short bursts, and shreds whatever clothes she's wearing when she uses it.

It revealed that Sylvia has a Boomer chip implants in her brain - that's why she's affected by stuff that affects Boomers, but isn't a Boomer herself.

While the comic isn't canon, this explanation is actually considered canon by the series head himself

You know that dumb meme where old is good and new is bad right? 2202 is literally that to Fukui which is why he hated all the new characters and decided to character assassinate them or remove them from the movies.
The stuff he came up with is far more insane, jarring and poorly done too

Right there with you. Bigger the gun the better.

What if Blade is Gunvolt?
Blade has a girl's voice though. Even if they were recasting Gunvolt I don't think they'd go for something so different.
Not that anon, but with a girlish voice, it doesn't mean Blade's a girl. Blade may very well be a male with how Japan does stuff.

If a girl, then wanting Blade to be a giga-tsun to Copen.
Yeah, I know that it might be a male, but Gunvolt didn't have a girl's voice, so I don't think Blade can be a recast Gunvolt.
May very well be a wholly different character altogether. Like GV, Blade has this celestial dragon thing going around him, but he/she may be a wholly different character. A person that was chosen for the Azure Striker project instead of Gunvolt (if the whole alternate reality stuff is to be believed and it's all caused by a butterfly effect)? Maybe even a successor to him/her but devoid of anything that made the original Azure Striker we love had (the fact Blade kills any Minos person he/she finds on Sumeragi's orders without any question is the biggest difference).

Either way, we need to see how it will be when the game finally launches...that along if Inti finally decides to make a ASG2 for Steam. Or simply release it as a massive DLC for the first Guvolt that upgrades it to the Striker Pack that includes the first two games + all the goodies it got.
