I really fucking like this thing. Too bad Gosterro is a whiny faggot.
He is even more of a bitch than Jerid was and twice as persistent too.
Don't be ridiculous. Nobody's THAT much of a bitch.
King Grados in a SRW game when?
When they actually let you convince Ru-Kain instead of killing him off

Mecha not currently licensed in your country that hope will get licensed one day. Pic related, but not at the top of the list.

I've only seen the first two episodes but the first ep felt very much like a super robot show with how the team was introduced (I don't care to argue about what defines super robot and real robot as genres because it doesn't lead to anything constructive).
I'm just glad we finally got Gundam last year
Its the proto wreckers, including a character that got snubbed and never showed up again, GigaNig the tank.

Whirl is kinda of a simp too

Riding Bean?
Did this get cancelled like Southern Cross? Or was it just a three season show?

Roadbuster and Whirl were from this anime. The legend goes it sort of failed so licensing out the molds was an easy way to get some cost back. There's a third one that had no head and was so Gobot like Hasbro never bothered, even though they had the rights to it. They got as far as a proposed name though. Landfire and then later Headcannon.

Oh also the deluxe Insecticons, the Dorvack guys, and Jetfire were all part of the same deal.

I beginning to think exaggerated Super Robot anime like Mazinger in the 70s somehow have more technical depth than a lot of modern "realistic" mecha animes these days.

And don't forget the ending which shows its internals, that's a really nice touch.
It is, very charming
I dunno, the choudenji bots are pretty grounded in what works
It was actually a bit funny watching that general in Voltes V actually realize that was an option. And they actually stick at it for a while. It wasn't just LET'S TRY IT ONCE AND NEVER AGAIN. A lot of plans also involved trying to neutralizes the Tenkuken. In general the basic formula of the genre seems to be either side trying todo whatever they can about each other's technology.
"""realism""" in general in mecha anime is nothing but nonsense and any kind of debate over "real" or "super" is typically based on a false dichotomy, but >>20254134 also has a bit to do with it IMO.

>he thinks coomer is a /v/ meme
How new?
is this good show yes? or no
It's easily the worst Tomino TV show. A remake movie would be an absolute blessing.
It's a flawed show, but memorable, and has some great things about it. One of the most touching romantic moments in a Tomino show happens towards the end, in the second to last episode I think.
I'd watch it again over Gundam 0079, just for how interesting it is.
Soundtrack makes me feel things.

Seems like Build the last show with generally positive reception.
Why can't following shows recreate its success?

Ultraman's making those sales on half of the budget and episode count per year, though. For Ultraman, having a show every year now is progress, and the shows are largely each doing better in terms of sales than the ones before. Sentai is dying because it's making half of what it did a decade ago and each season is doing worse than the one before it.
The fact that Ultra has half the budget even ignoring the episode count is the biggest problem I have with it. We still get the toy spam Rider has and yet the constant kaiju reuse and reluctance to destroy the set is still a problem when you compare it to what it used to be. Yes it's doing better by modern Ultraman standards but it's also been eight years since Ginga and it still feels like a cheap imitation of what the franchise used to be.
Sentai is doing bad, definitely, but didn't Sentai lower its budget starting with Kiramager too? I remember those sales predictions being pretty close to the end result but I might be wrong there.
I thought it was alright but felt routine and tuned out early on.
Most new Kamen Riders have lost their humanity to some extent to gain their powers for the sake of protecting people. Gaim loses the ability to eat food after overusing the driver. Ghost dies in the first episode. Those are just a couple examples. It's been a pretty consistent theme.
>we wouldn't get Gubila every other fucking season.
You don't understand anon, its respecting the past.

>didn't Sentai lower its budget starting with Kiramager too?
Some signs were there from before. IIRC the half-season compilation episode started in Ninninger and IIRC it was around that time that they started reusing monster suits more frequently.

I've just finished watching this show and absolutely loved it. Please tell me the other Brave shows are as good as this one. As an aside note, which version of FINAL I should watch? Regular or Grand Glorious Gathering?

Kiss Players' inspiration?
I love the style but not the substance.

Does the Monster-of-the-Week / Rinse & Repeat vibe let up in the second half?
T.here's a couple of small arcs and more overarching plot coming in, but the show's mostly the same.
Da Garn is the only Brave that has an ongoing plot for pretty much its entire duration. You'd be better off watching that. I personally don't care much for the discrepancy between GGG's MotW first half and plot-oriented second half either, almost always you get people who prefer one or the other and feel like only half the show's worth their time, and I'm no exception. Show should have ended with the Tokyo Battle
preordered. thanks for the heads up.

Is this movie set before or after the events of Grendizer?
it doesn't fit either way no matter how I think about it

Americans don't know the difference, give him a break.
Shin Jeeg is more an AU than a sequel since stuff happens that obviously didn't happen in the original show. In the original Hiroshi beats Himika, beats the villain than comes after her and is free to get together with Micchi after he's victorious. In Shin during the final battle with Himika Hiroshi ends up sealing everyone there but Micchi away for 50 years during which she marries someone else and has a grandaugher and then Hiroshi and Himika return and restart the conflict. The second arc from the original show never happens and that other villain never shows up.

Plus Hiroshi's dad is still alive (he's killed in the first episode and becomes a brain in the computer in the original) the Haniwa are aliens, there's a second Bronze Bell, and Takeru's entire story is not only different but in the original he dies in his intro ep while in Shin he lives for another 50 years. Hiroshi also has an upgrade to a second cyborg form in the original, while in Shin they seemed to have merged the two into one design.

So while the original show roughly happens to about the halfway point minus some changes like Takeru and Professor Shiba surviving in Shin it's not a direct sequel to it. In fact Shin being a direct sequel to the original is impossible because the Haniwa are completely defeated, and Hiroshi and Micchi aren't seperated for 50 years meaning there would be no need for a second Jeeg and Tsubaki wouldn't exist.
I haven't finished OG Jeeg yet but I read that Shin Jeeg happens 50 years after the original show
Like he explains there, it basically happens 50 years after an alternate ending to the show's first arc, not 50 years after the actual show that was made.
Huh, better call Ryoma, his missing pal is here.

Is there a guide on when you unlock personal instance to farm for parts for a certain character? I know you get Viorate's on level 50 because people screams that everywhere but I want to know other characters'.
It's impossible to know when and in what order we're actually going to be getting things. Rin was a launch day banner for us when she absolutely was not for JP or CN. Flavia was a battle pass suit while she was a banner suit for JP.
Ada and Aoife are 20. Esmerelda is 30. Aita is 40. Viorate is 50. Elizabeth and Leigh are 60.
I'm saving for the super robo girls.
what the hell I thought we're supposed to be able to get mechs for at least half the girls

Can't wait for 30 to be out so I don't have to get rid of like 5 embeded
Good, maybe we can finally get the HWS back
I'd rather have Zeta over ZZ.
It'd make it very notable since it would be before Arc makes it to consoles but best isn't probably the best way to describe it since people would have their own opinions of it
