Let's discuss the good old blue comet
Is that from Legend of the Blue Wolves?
>>17686664What? No it's from spt blue comet layzner from 1985 by the creator of votoms, it's one of his more well known works besides that.
>>17686670Forgot to mention that lonely way is a favorite mecha op of mine
Started watching it todaySeems good. Too bad everyone seems to be stupid but it's understandable
>>17687114Nice to see you started watching it's great, the Iva's especially the last one are also recommended
>>17686658say something good about my pet human.
>>17688201Your human pet? That's your pilot!
Is the good blu ray rip with subtitles anywhere to be found? I only found the raw and the subs are all out of sync.
god dammit if i ever met takashi i'd tell him to finish the grados arc
>>17689001Didn't the 3rd ova technically finish on how the series was supposed to end?
AMAZING looking show, although the comic relief really grated on me.That said I was satisfied by it, and that action... yowza.
>>17690754One of them's the V-max I suppose
Left or right?
>>17690754No wait never mind they're both normal. As for>>17691092I'm going to say right but with the head of the left so it doesn't look to much like a gundam
>>17690613Going by some interview there was orignially meant to be a third arc.In this arc the seal of grados would be broken, eiji would reunite with his parents, and ru kain would return like he said he would, all amongst rising tensions between the earthlings and gradosians.
>>17691705Including the king grados, which probably would have been the final foe, I'm guessing or envisioning it would have combated the v-max or layzner mk2 and even maybe ru kain in a possible redemption scenario. Series would probably end on a happy note
>>17691092Left is 10/10
>>17688201I love how much it looks like Doraemon in this shot.
Ronery way!Boku Pico noRonery way!Oh no mamaRun like the MELONS your knee!
>>17693562shoot the head, the head!
Great animation and designs. Solid first arc. The rest is terrible.
It's just Gundam with brain problems
>>17693608That farmhouse episode is the best tho
>>17691705>>17691763I was never happy with the ending before and now I'm even less happy by what might have been.
Have a cover of Lonely Way because you can never have enough of this songhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PSOQMQu_qQ
>>17695443>That version of this cover with lines from the show in itTrue masterpiece.
>>17695409Yeah, it's unfortunate it had to get cut short so quickly, it was on the same time spot as zeta gundam
Anything you want to say to Ru Kain's SPT?
>>17696947Damn I wish it had a model kit. One that isn't 30 years old at least.
>>17697214lol just paint layzner gold bro
>>17695409Yeah, fuck the sponsors for making exploding air filters.
>>17686909I love it too, really nice song. I wish Airmail from Nagasaki had done more, seemed like they had a lot of potential.
>>17686658this show is based as fuck i need to finish it. my favorite part is how grim some parts are.
Didn't finish it, but tell me. Is David gay? It's only way to explain his actions on Mars.
>>17698532Nope, David's straight as an arrow and wins Simone's heart by the end.
>>17696947I like the death gale spts better
>>17695437Honestly one of the best cover from the whole album. I think the other good one was Time For L-Gaim.
>>17697317The lead singer did plenty of other stuff I believe. Like this numberhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acO0mmXpt8E
>>17699221That's a big chin
>>17695443Kageyama has too much vibratto, he oversings the song.Great performer though
>>17699221the man who was cucked to death
>>17690613iirc originally they were going to take the gradosians left on Earth on an exodus to Grados and they would deal with the computer that started the war.
>>17699967So one again an evil super computer would have been the one who was behind everything like Zambot 3, interesting wonder what the king grados would have gone into play for this.
>>17699264Oh, sweet, nice find! Guess I have more stuff to listen to.
Rowan is ___
>>17700715Based and did nothing wrong
>>17701750I like how the mecha is small enough you can see the pilot inside the head controlling it. Only 9 meters, that's half the size of the RX-78-2
>>17697914Oh shit is this real?
>>17701645He really didn't. The true hero of the second arc
>>17702935https://twitter.com/SUNRISEMusicINC/status/1159661834254868482Here's the source
It's astonishing how much the 2nd part was inspired by 80s Hollywood.The Death Gale Squad was basically a bunch of slasher villains.
>>17703201Crazy too, one of them even piloted the devil gundam in shin super robot wars. Yes it is an odd decision they did that.
>>17705407I can't believe Gosterro was voiced by Ramba Ral's VA.
>>17705760>Also voiced Destin in Fang of the sun dougramHe's used to being the best villain
I'm just 5 episodes shy of finishing and I have to sayFirst half is amazing, some of the best starts of any mecha series I've watchedBut second half... my God
>>17706414>But second half... my GodThe second half is the better part though.
>>17706417I still have hopes for the last 5.This saga is way too episodic, lots of stuff out of character, and too much time on pointless things like fucking Gosterro. Also the red haired dude sucks. Not enough Eiji talking to Rei. Enjoy David and Simone being badasses, except the colisseum episode, which was retarded as hell.From the start until they reach the Moon the show is absolutely amazing.
>>17707885The most shocking part of that is Arthur's gut.
>>17707896Man, Simone picking David and Arthur eating those Grados meals really affected him.
What the fuck was up with that end35-37 were so goodDirector must've felt like shit after it got canned
Well just finished the third ova and IT WAS PRETTY FUCKING GOOD, DAMN. HOLY SHIT, WHAT A RIDE. 9/10
>>17708317Your not supposed to watch episode 38, there's a reason why OVA number 3 was made.
>>17708956Well nobody told me about that
>>17708956>>17709860Yeah, what's this story? Do the OVAs replace the last episodes?
>>17710953The first and second episodes of the OVA are a recap of the show, and the third episode is an extended version of the last episode with new animation.
>>17710591Don't know of any Gundam with a similar story to this. Maybe IdeonI wanted to ask, is Layzner the first mecha animu to use a 'zero system' or 'seed-like' supercomputer powerup? Also were the Saiyan scouters copied from this?
>Greatest OP in history>Can't get into the pacingHow do I like the show bros? I really want to
>>17706414I really think that the possy of FOTNS reject villains was the biggest issue, and Costerro, I would have been glad for him to drop dead within the first cour. Going in that direction with the plot was quite good, the occupation setting was interesting, and the stuff with Eiji's sister and the mythological elements was all really cool and gave the setting some extra depth. The animation in the second half gets amazing as well. So much glorious rubble animation everywhere. But I definitely feel the frustration at that part of the show just not quite working out. It kind of took them a bit too long to get to earth as well. Layzner is one of those shows that had the potential to be one of the best tv anime ever, but kind of botched the landing, in my opinion.
>>17711561I really don't get how Gosterro survived on the fist cour when Eiji shot him on his SPT's cockpit.
