I'm going to be a contrarian and say I actually prefer his original designs that were cleaned up for animation/manga to his re-designs where he gets entirely free reign

Is Turn A Gundam worth watching? How good is the trap content (a few scenes or recurring)?
Turn A's very worth watching, but if you're in it solely for traps it only happens like twice in a 50-episode series.

some kind pastanon translated it some time ago
At the end of the story, there was an ad for the toys of the various mechas featured

>1. Trider G7: the angel with flaming wings
>2. Tansor 5: angels' taxi
>3. Gattiger: space caravan
>4. Calendar Man (aka Time Bokan: Yattodetaman): the camel centaur
>5. The Starzingers: the three Magi
>6. X Bomber: the adored sovereign of the Orion constellation
>7. Gotriniton (aka Goshogun): the merchant of stairs small and big
>8. God Sigma: the shepard that comes from the sky
>9. Zanbot 3: the moon comet
>10. Gordian: the messenger of space
I made a typo on 7, it's "stars" and not "stairs" (of course).
If someone has a more literary/olde english synonym of "flaming" that would be even more appropriate for Trider.

You are correct, but the vehicles are only three. There is Princess Aurora that probably counts as the fourth character.

Mashin Hero Wataru thread? I just started this and I'm on episode 11. I'm loving it so far. I haven't seen much mecha anime outside of popular things like Gundam. I love the whole nonsensical fantasy JRPG plus modern (at the time) life or pop culture like the Universal Monsters mashins. I don't like to use this word a lot but it's so comfy.

Does anyone have any suggestions for 80's anime in general? I feel like I'm really missing out. I've seen every Gundam from that era, and for some reason Giant Gorg but nothing else.

>Breaking the orb on the ab would kill Ryujinmaru
Maybe he's a rogue angel from Evangelion that went "fuck this I'm outta here".
Something about the toys, the different designs, publishing manga & origin franchise.
This seem to be the setting, a thousand years after mashins are sealed, they finally broke free & cause chaos everywhere. Just when protag, Zero who lost his village to evil mashins, Jashins? is attacked by one, Ryujinmaru appears from his sword? to help, together they go on an adventure to save world & stuff.

Pretty atypical plot.

The game can look and "feel" as appealing as it wants. Destiny had those two aspects down just fine, but that didn't stop the game as a whole from becoming a massive, four-year-long dumpster fire from which Bungie has yet to fully recover from.

My faith in BioWare to deliver on everything that they're pitching is exactly zero.

Thanks, but I'll stick with Destiny. The more I see of Anthem, the more underwhelmed I feel about it.
Unless it can somehow unveil that the second set of armours onwards somehow rival the creativity and design of WarFrame, the weapons become as creative as Destiny 1 and you even have special armours made by famous /m/ people, it can fail for all I care.

For me, this place was the last episode of original BGC. That's when things started going wrong somehow.Then 1991 crisis came and they decided to make Crash and AD Police OVA with little to no budget.

>Laplace Box being a big pile of nothing
The content of the box was irrelevant; the box itself was of value. The anon(s) in >>17045718 made a very good elaboration how the only ones to care about the box were people deep in the past and that everyone else couldn't care less about some special box or whatever there might be within it.

>elaboration on Newtypes
The rhetoric behind Newtypes is reminiscent of beliefs present in various religions such as Abrahamic and Oriental ones, which viewed the physical as a prison and the spiritual as the true or superior form of man. Thus Newtypes can be interpreted as an extension of these religious beliefs, with "going beyond the time" essentially being going beyond the three dimensional. Newtypes are thus people with an evolved high degree of spiritualism to them, with Psycommu, Psychoframe and related technology being futuristic technology capable of channeling spiritualism. The word "occult" is used by the Japanese fandom for a reason; it is criminally underused in the western fandom.

>Unicorn powercreeps F90, F91, Crossbone and Victory-era MS
Again, there can be found parallels with real life, too. Take ancient empires like the Persian or various Chinese dynasties that were highly sophisticated for their time and produced works which to this day are cutting-edge or the blueprints for which can't be found or recreated. And if ancient empires are to be viewed with an eye of skepticism, consider the most recent example which happens to be the brightest one: the technological and scientific achievements of the late 19th to early 20th century, the rapid progress which would be halted by the eruption of WW1 (which itself would set the stage for WW2) and wouldn't accelerate again until the Cold War many decades later. All signs so far point to either a catastrophic event that will slow down the rapid progress of UC, or perhaps a planned deacceleration out of fear for how deep the people of UC have gotten themselves into.

I guess ripping off older stuff like Roman Holiday does qualify it as modern classic.
Unicorn is better than GL.
Okay, well done on getting the Audrey Hepburn reference for the runaway princess, but calling it a rip-off of Roman Holiday makes you look like a tool trying to look bigbrained
