>fan favorite character dies
>bring him back with an exact lookalike
Is this the least respect ever shown for a fictional character before?
>>
>>17309130
>entire character is about how the alleged replacement isn't anything like the original but people expect him to be
>down to how they gave him a sniper suit but he's a mediocre sniper, he's great at gun kata which his brother sucked at

We get shit like the Einstein quote being directly placed on the screen at the end of the movie because people like you are too stupid to understand what's being said otherwise.

This would be cool if his design wasn't a 1:1 replica. Maybe a little more hinting to his existence beforehand too, though s1 did do it a bit already.
>>
>>17309149
>Maybe a little more hinting to his existence beforehand too
Like showing them both in the same scene, visiting the same grave?

Sounds like A Better Tomorrow. Chow Yun Fat dies in the original, but his character was such a huge success that his twin brother shows up in the sequel.

They brought him back though

they already showed the twin at the 1/3rd point of the first season and then when he showed up to replace his brother's role he had a different personality

what the fuck else do you niggers want
>>
>>17309200
>what the fuck else do you niggers want
That they killed off Tieria instead and replaced him with literally anyone else

He was gay and deserving of the rope

I remember there was an observation that the show was named "Double O" and all four Maesters had some form of duality:

Lockon was twin brothers.
Al had two personalities.
Tieria piloted a suit inside a suit.
Setsuna led a double life (as Saji's neighbor/as a Meister)
>>
>>17309130
Someone never watched A Better Tomorrow 2

A different hair cut?
>>
Is Lyle the ultimate "I shitposted on 4chan instead of watching the show" filter?
>>
I like Lyle more
>>
>>17309130
If you wanna complain about Lyle, complain about the fact they cut out his romance scene with Anew that actually developed their relationship; which was instead relegated to being an extra scene on the special edition dvd.
>>
Just out of curiosity, did 00 always have a S2 planned, or did they make one in response to S1 reception?
>>
>>17309319
I think Setsuna's true duality is the ironiy of a child soldier becoming an envoy of peace.
Setsuna is literally the "Islam is a religion of peace" meme personified
>>
>>17309434
Pretty sure it was always planned right through to the movie, dialogues to come and all that.
>>
>>17309427
The scene in question if anyone's curious. Sucks being a western 00 fan.

>+5 Sunrise bucks redeemed for MG Dynames
No regrets.
>>
>>17309130

Eh, Lyle was a fakeout. Sure, he looked like Lockon. But, he wasn't. He makes that point early on when he's too flirty with Feldt. Hell, Tieria even picks up on it really early on and there's that bit of tension between them briefly.

>>17309188

Why, whatever do you mean? Clearly, that's the original. He's back from the hospital planet :)

>>17309434

Season 2 was planned from the get-go. It wasn't like Code Geass where the decision to split things up came relatively late into production. Things did change as far as what they were going to do to some extent though.
>>
>>17309427
The director did say they cut that subplot to develop Tieria and Setsuna. Win some, lose some I guess.
>>
>>17309532

The Japanese have no time for Micks.
>>
>>17309434

It was always the plan yeah. They decided to split it into two blocks both to avoid the potential development issues Seed Destiny had, and becamse they wanted to get the second season of Geass out while it was still hot without competing with themselves.
>>
>>17309532
Tieria and Setsuna
Bros4Lyfe

Yeah ok. I have less of a problem with the scene being cut then.
>>
>>17309141
>>down to how they gave him a sniper suit but he's a mediocre sniper, he's great at gun kata which his brother sucked at
Then his movie upgrade drops the gunkata shit.
>>
>>17309434
00 always was planned as 2 seasons from the start and the storyline more or less followed the same trajectory, though certain events and aesthetic choices got switched around based on fan reaction (e.g. Gundams having mouth vents in S2).

Also, the movie plot was originally meant to be part of the S2 finale until Sunrise decided it should be its own thing.
>>
>>17309553
It's still there, just not used. The beam rifles can ditch the long barrel to turn into a pistol with a little GN blade.
>>
>>17309309
Hopefully not after the stageplay is what you're Implying
>>
>>17309595

I think he means that one chick from the movie. The one who was just there to give Billy some puss to smash.
>>
>>17309436
>Setsuna

The guy is an atheist, unless you count his obsession with Gundams.
>>
>>17309130
>generally enjoyed the series as I watched it
>afterwards I barely remember suit names or character names
This has never happened with any other series. Why was this shit so forgettable?
>>
>>17309553
>>17309561
It was more any sort of gunplay other than sniping which included using all the bits he got which were the actual focus of the movie suit.

Gundams are the only things that turn him on. Setsuna is the ultimate gunota

Early onset alsheimers is starting to set in. You should start making preperations.

>>17309130
He was shown a little after halfway through season 1 though. It's not like it was out of nowhere.

Yeah, he's still rapid-firing with one gun in each hand. I'm fine with counting that as gun-kata even if they're carbines instead of pistols.

Lyle was the exact same as Neil, end of story. It was the narrative version of Takumi racing essentially himself with different hair and a new car every episode of Initial D.

This whole board is full of stupid niggers, I fucking swear.

That was really only the case in the race of Final Stage. Which sucked.

Lyle was introduced in the 9th episode of the first season, he'd been around for over 16 episodes prior to Setsuna recruiting him to take over his brother's missing place in their group.

Blame Setsuna for his shitty way of thinking to heal wounds, not Lyle for sticking around just for Anew's vagina. It's a shit state of affairs for show credibility but that's sadly just how it went.
>>
>>17310947
Are you retarded?
Setsuna was a muslim up until the appearance of the 0 Gundam on that battlefield in Krugis.
Then he becomes atheist and develops a strange view of the gundam as a kind of savior/godlike existence.
>>
>>17312034
>His entire plot arc is literally
>"I'm not my fucking brother, take the hint."

Are you retarded or just autistic?
>>
>>17309130
Lockon already had death flags since the earliest of episodes.

When they've shown that he has a clone twin it was ogre, people just did not know how he'll go out.
>>
>>17312724
And yet he did things just like him, piloted a suit just like his, was out for revenge just like him etc.
>>
>>17313063
>out for revenge just like him
Confirmed for not watching the show.
>>
>>17309130
I didn't we directly see his twin in season 1
>>
>>17309149
I thought there hair was a different color
>>
>>17313077
Did watch the show. Him saying he didn't want revenge was lying. His actions betrayed what he said.

He nearly let Ali escape at the end before Ali couldn't pass up the chance to be a bastard one last time.
>>
>>17313301
The whole point of Lyle wasn't that he was different from his brother, it's that he was forcing himself to act different from him. He was putting up a front the whole series. He was a spy faking his way through Celestial Being.
>>
>>17312522
Given that he expressly thinks "There is no god" during the fighting in ep 01 BEFORE Ribbons shows up, he's already given up on the Islamic religion thanks to Ali's crap.
