No, it was a combination of many different shitposters, real world events, Hiro not being hands on with rule enforcement, and a lot of bad anime that somehow got popular. To say any one thing killed positive vibes is a lie.

Perhaps edge shit wasn't the best term to describe rerise, but it's certainly brooding and the definition of un-fun
>Hiroto has zero character outside of caring more for AIs than both his teammates and IRL friends/family
>The last four episodes have followed the same formula of "BUILD DiVERS member reminds us that they suck at something (Par not wanting to fly/fight, Kazami aggroing like a tard)> they sulk for half an episode complaining about how much they suck > suddenly realization/dramatic moment hits them > they man up and beat the boss of the week > go buy the kits now"
>7 episodes in and the only thing related to actual gunpla building was Hiroto 3D printing a runner
It's just too damn predictable due to the story moving at a glacial pace. Compare that to Build Fighters, where right now we'd have the beach/inn episode where Sei/Reiji/Mao teamed up against the dude with the Apsalus III. I'm not saying Re:Rise needs to raise the stakes like most people here did when the first two episodes came out, I just want something more than the same episode rinsed and repeated for weeks at a time.

If a season starts it's first episode with the protagonists fighting Nazis in South America, parrying tank shells with their fists, riding on top of helicopters (not in the helicopters, on top of the rotors) to bring the fight to the Nazi's airship, MGR-style rocket jumping to get close enough so that they can Zankantou the ship down the middle, and rocket punch their way through the ship with the enemy commander in their custody before the airship explodes, all in the span of like 6-7 minutes, then yeah its subverted my expectations

>>17979404
>Hiroto has zero character outside of caring more for AIs than both his teammates and IRL friends/family
Holy fuck, how do you even watch the show?
He actually cared about Par, Kazami and also was shown caring about Hinata. His problem is the fact that he can't into communication.
It's not actually that predictable, going by the fact that I saw a lot of theories where it's going both on /a/ and /m/, none of which might come true.
Honestly, this pacing and formula actually works fine, especially compared to how rushed Divers felt, while people wanted the characters to get more focus.

Also, unlike early 2010s, late 2010s definitely feel more like mecha is dying. Early 2010s wasn't a massive boom, but there was more that was good and just more in general.

Well what a coincidence, I just did some /m/tan related stuff last night.
Last thread I was in, months ago, I was shown some characters that never got much use, /m/aam and /m/iss. Yesterday I felt like redrawing them, trying to streamline a bit and also just change them as according to my own tastes.
Tomorrow or so if this thread is still around I might stop and post some sprites too
>>
Honestly, things just haven't been the same after the majority of name and tripfags left. They were so common and sparked conversations and projects that it feels empty without them. All we've got left is Fllay, Moose, Mattman and Gunlord occasionally.

Proxies, and that faggot who kept spamming /m/ with strawpolls, and then rigged his own strawpolls with proxies.

Probably the same board hostility and shitposting that took us five fucking years to come up with /m/-tan in the first place?

These are all super nice.

I had no idea 8ch even had a Mecha board, let alone /m/-tan.

Technically his name was "/m/usashi", no?

As for "/m/ Black", that's just /m/usashi Titans ver. Same character, I just made it to be an alternate colour palette. Do you have any plans to use the sprites?

I really like /m/anzer.

By the last days it was mostly dead as a lot of legacy boards were, more common to have /m/ discussion on /v/. Glad to hear you enjoy /m/anzer's design. If you're the anon who drew the titans variant /m/usashi does that mean you're the one who invented the character in the first place or at least drew the most referenced and recognisable image, that image with a few different doodles including a super form?

I'll make a note the titans version is just that, the other two black versions I made myself don't even remember why with black getter in mind do they're more meant as clones.

I just do these sprites for fun, I once thought of making some sheets for general use but it's effort I'd rather put on other work, I just meanwhile enjoy doing these charts of characters and character designs in idle poses. Here's the full file I have by now, I had bigger ones before that tried to chart literally every 8ch tan but here I'm just doing random designs I like whether from 4chan, 8ch, my own ideas, console-tans, etc. That said if anyone wants to use them and animate them they're free to, this is public domain as far as I'm concerned too

Yeah, I designed him on a day off back in university. I also made Kamen Rider Fortune, an old, old image macro.

I love designing characters and mecha, but I haven't been able to make a career of it. I don't come here that often these days.

Your spriting style is really nice, you could probably work with someone to get an cool indie game going.
>>
>>17990161
Wow, nice. Might be silly but I'm legit honoured, I like those drawings and always aspired to capture some if that spirit, and what's the odds I'd get to have you say you like the stuff I do, as a random anon chance encounter, a near decade afterwards? Cool stuff, man.

I'm already working on an indie Vidya, although the sprite style us kinda different. Would be fun to do something going full-on into famicube restrictions someday.

To not have this just be an ongoing circlejerk, any anons have ideas or pitches, even if simple, using these characters? Drawing ideas, or concept ideas, or whatever. For instance, Turn /m/ was presumably designed to be musashi's nemesis, but where's he from, was he built by someone or something? Or how does Emi relate to all this?

I'm afraid my contributions likely have to focus on board-tan stuff since it's what I'm most familiar with

>Or how does Emi relate to all this?
/m/usashi once saved a young girl named Emi, who was inspired by his example.

Years later he was injured in battle. Emi, now an adult, volunteered for a dangerous procedure that would turn her into a new /m/-tan so she could fight in his place. Unlike /m/usashi, her body includes magitek components.

After a while, /m/usashi recovered and they became a team.

Because topics like magitek, /m/ahou shoujo and realistic androids have distinct aesthetics that don't fit Musashi.

There's been some in this thread so far, which is more than there has been since 2017.

>>17977208
2003-2009 was 4chan's honeymoon period.

Then social media got big and flooded the internet with insufferable faggots. People grew up and got jobs. Some lost interest and pursued other types of content.

As for /m/ specific factors contributing to the decline, there was a paradigm shift away from good syfy anime and towards a homogenized selection of isekai/school slice of life. Without the steady stream of new material to wank over, the board just stagnated until only a few generals dominate the lion's share of old school discussion.

The toku, Gunpla and gundam threads are pretty much the last remnants of old /m/, but those things are so different in substance or style that they're basically just microcultures with the subculture being reduced to just a space shared by generally adjacent subjects of interest.

Without new content that's as thrilling as it is accessible to everyone regardless of whether your main thing is toku, Manga or gunpla, the current coexistence of micro culture generals will probably persist into the future until the board eventually dies. Every general will still have its own oc and memes, but as a board we'll always be divided by a lack of engaging anime the likes of which spawned this comfytainment board in the first place.

At least we'll always have Great Dangaioh.
