>had something going
Like that episode where Touma wrote a battle plan with friendship right? Fucking cringe.

Can't believe I actually sat through those horrible episodes until this show started to inprove. Not sure if it was worth it honestly.
>Like that episode where Touma wrote a battle plan with friendship right?
Actually, great action and some setup for later story developments. Then there were some few but pretty good character interactions like Ryo and Kento's conversation at the rooftop and the moment and the whole sequence leading up to Daishinji warming up to Touma.
I started watching rider as it aired during Ghost. Ghost is pretty damn low tier but it looked good next to Zio, which somehow lowered the bar even more.

Now let's have a look at Saber. I made it up to ep 7 before I had enough of it's shit. I've built up a pretty high tolerance for terrible shit, but I can't go 2 seconds watching Saber without cringing. I'll finish it eventually but that's going to be a difficult ironic watch.
You poor, pitiable anon... here... have a (you) for your suffering...
>Saber takes significantly more than 16 episodes to get better
I mean, it gets "better" than the early episodes much sooner than that, where in addition to the awkward pacing you had the bland CG action with barely any contact between the suits. But, those still had a very awkward conflict and the action itself still failed at important points like form debuts, so it wasn't exactly "good" even then.

I think aside from the awkward transition between the first and second arcs it started improving writing-wise as soon as Yuri debuted though, but it still took a while to really become something I'd consider good (exactly due that awkward transition which still weighted the show down for several episodes).

And some P-Bandai kits to go with it.
I don't know what to feel about the designs

This 1st episode has been a bigger letdown than Gridman. Character designs are just as bland, the kaiju & backgrounds switched to some really awful and jarring 3dcg during the fight. Other than that though the backgrounds were nice. I hope things improve for episode 2.

Wow that is edited with no consideration for flow. Bad CG all over the place.
We got it the first time, OP.
That's shocking, it was as if they were trying to make the cg look terrible on purpose.
garish effects
The only good thing from gridman was the girls.

Started watching this a few days ago, almost halfway through and its interesting at the very least.
I really like the bug mech designs but I'd like them more if the weapons were a bit more varied.

/m/ what do you think of Dunbine?
21 replies and 6 images omitted. Click here to view.
Pretty sure that was because a lot of the tech is newly developed thanks to Weapon Shot's arrival. IIRC they had the flying battleships that used aura but Shot developed the first aura battlers and probably introduced a fair amount of other weapons as well.
Out of the three Bines who is your favorite?

One of the most interesting spiritual takes on war narrative. Top-tier designs. Great characters. Great world-building. Great message. Deserves all praise Ideon gets and more.
One of Tomino's all-time bests.

For those unfamiliar, "plamo" is a shortened form of "plastic model". If it's made of plastic, someone can probably help you here!
If you're new, you're gonna fuck up. Don't worry! If you're experienced, don't make the new people worry!

>Why won't anyone answer my question?
Try being specific, especially about your materials and process. Post images whenever possible; even if the kit/part looks bad, you are more likely to get help posting images.

I dunno what you're looking at but it isn't the RG Johnny Ridden Zaku - looks like it's a P-Bandai early model type since it doesn't have the covers on the legs.
The jupitive arm kinda matched it better, maybe it's just the color making it pop more
Actually, double checking, it looks like the RG Johnny Ridden comes with the parts to make both the early and late model legs (late model just has a couple of parts that go OVER the early model legs).
From what I've read, the RG High Mobility Zaku uses a slightly different build to the standard RG Zaku and is actually better for it.
I may get one myself now since I way prefer the early model legs.

The image you linked is an RG that will be featured in the new Gundam Build Real series and will be released at some point in future.

Doesn't help that Four off her meds got really messed up and Rosamia was flat out insane and they still put her in Psyco II. Which shocking no one went on a rampage, it's okay since it was aimed at the AEUG and she continued towards it and the Gundam.
But if she got disoriented and went at the Titans. Hoo-boy I'd not want to be working a Newtype Lab after that. Ohm might personally show up and start strangling people to death

Nah, it makes sense along 40k's tech cultists and their abhorence of anything approaching AI. Heavily augmented cyborgs in 40k are mostly just mutilated brains or network of brains running without the benefit of sophisticated computer systems.

In which instances does "Zeon-wank" actually happen in Gundam?
28 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Worst case of Zeon Wank is definitely the entire second half of 0083. I've never seen another show bend over backwards as much as it did to make Operation Stardust a success. Also Gato is the cringiest self-insert character in the whole franchise.
Its simple Zeonfanwank is the way writer tries to humanize Zeon and demonize Feds.
I'm still butthurt by how uninportant (and unanimated) the colony crash is
That sounds like something a Zeon Sympathizer would say

How much did Evangelion actually change anime? I keep hearing about how there was a massive spike in experimental shows because of Eva but I feel like they would've been made without Eva existing like Lain and Brain Powerd.

its certainly a very powerful tool when it comes to that, eva constantly got away with having still frames with just v/o by making it a striking shot.
>Eureka 7
>big hit
Nobody gives a shit about that show in Japan.
It got videogames, a sequel series and a series of films wtf are you on about?
If anything I wish they cared about it less so they'd stop making really shitty sequels
Regular kids and teenager stuff for the daytime slots, experimental and otaku pandering stuff for the night slots. Eva's success demonstrated the latter has a healthy audience ready for the taking.

Transformers toku series when? Masterforce was awesome.
>Masterforce was awesome.
It really was - an underrated gem of a series. That said, I'd love an OVA that captured and continued the vibe of the first episode.

All right, bitch, sub the rest of the episodes and I might.
This applies to other shows mecha fans won't shut up about but a majority of the series only has jank-ass bootleg subtitles too by the way
It has Spanish subs, you Americans shouldn't have any trouble watching.

What's the general consensus about G Gundam? After rewatching it I still liked it but found it a bit silly in some places especially with the Disney tier ending where love prevails.
8 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Every time I revisit this show in games I just find more ham and cheese. It is unbelievably silly but so sincere that I can't help but love it.

I mean Domon and his master have specially rehearsed greeting lines that end with 'look, the East is burning red'. Also his ultimate attack involves waltzing with his love interest and summoning burger king in an energy blast.
Fucking excellent show. Great lead, great supporting cast, Flying in the Sky is my favorite Gundam OP, great fights, and Master Asia's death has me bawling everytime.
The best Gundam series that doesn't have Furuya in the cast. A bombastic unashamedly fun thrill ride with some of the best characterisation in the franchise.

>Disney tier ending

Be online less.

>Domon got a second Gundam while no one else did

The 4 Heavenly Kings all did.

G-Gundam IS pro wrestling
only flaw is the stock footage. Just imagine how good it would be without it
So you're saying it has no flaws

>HE TURNED HIS EYE LIGHTS OFF???!!!!?!?!?!?!!111

What was the purpose of the city episodes of Genocyber? I'm not sure what it added to the overall narrative, and it's thematic meaning only seems to be Elaine is undying. Otherwise I have no idea, it feels like 2 episodes of a random show.
Genocyber has an underlying theme of mankind's pursuit of power being the cause of their own destruction and those final two episodes are the conclusion of that with the literal last bastion of us being destroyed because one guy couldn't let shit go and built a giant canon inside of a space colony in an attempt to kill Elaine rather than leave her alone.
Genocyber is meant as a cathartic revenge story and the first few episodes play this out. However the final episodes are about showing how the world was so screwed up that Genocyber manifested too often and eventually Elaine completely lost sight of herself in her vengeance and took things too far, causing Genocyber to be worshipped and feared as a god of death that some of mankind itself want vengeance on. In the end she is convinced to finally put that persona to rest and end the cycle of violence

I really like it as an ending. A lot of people don't for some reason, but it makes the OVA a little more than just schlock and gore. It really stands out from the rest of Ohata's work for being deeper than it appears to be at first, for having more than a basic surface level interpretation. But, I get that some people might just be watching it for the gore; I myself was like that going into it
is it on bluray?
i think only DVD
