There's still something missing. The show just keeps blueballing us by Kento, if not someone else explaining Touma's backstory off-screen. It's a terrible way to build suspense in a mystery when the majority of the cast are in the loop off to the side. All except the amnesiac himself.

Like, the charitable assumption is Kento explained the whole unfulfilled promise thing in more detail off-screen, which makes Ogami's heel turn a little more stomachable, but the audience has no way of knowing for sure. What if the conversation they had really was it? It's a really weak justification either way.

If we ever start making real mecha, will Bandai become a weapons manufacturer? And will they own the Gundam trademark, so they are the only ones who can make the first ever Gundam?

ERA occasionally shows up here and there. In Macross Zero there's a VF-0 fitted with heavy reactive armor that makes a good showing for itself.

mechs could be used for construction, logistics and other work in areas where a normal vehicles has to little maneuvering space, would have to avoid obstacles or is not all terrain enough.

logistics and construction are primere uses because of versatility. forest or mountain based jobs are good uses for the all terrain use. disatser cleanup is a combination of both strenghts. riot control would be another use, as a mech is intimidating and can cross areas without plowing through them.

in the military a mech could be usefull in areas a normal ground vehicle can't reach and a helicopter has to little on-target time (as a helicopter spends much energy hovering on one spot, while standing in place takes very little energy). such areas would be forests, mountains, rubble, cities and other otherwise impassible terrain. these terrains also provide a lot of vertical cover, helping with the high silouette.
>>
>>18979326
in cities, a legged vehicle is more mobile than a tank and can defend itself in close combat. a mech could take side roads, making the predictive placement of IED's much harder. a mech has very good ground clearence, so IED's are less of an issue. a mech can utilize cover like an infantryman would, while other vehicles are more limited by their shape. a mech can carry heavier armor than a helicopter (as it does not need to hover) while being similarily mobile in combat. a mech could carry a rpg resistant shield it can point towards attack vectors.

cities are the primere fighting ground for mechs.

a mech (legged vehicle) is more terrain-capable and has better traction on loose terrain than a tank. this would help with combat engineering

there are a lot uf uses. but not in the role of already existing vehicles. it is a new paradigm like the tank or helicopter was.
a completely terrain agnostic ground vehicle with an addaptive silouette and multipurpose tools.

After reading some positive threads about Re:Rise, I decided to go through Build Divers first despite having dropped TRY (I did like the first series).
To my surprise, I ended up quite enjoying Build Divers. It was predictable and clearly a series to sell retooled HG gunpla, yet most episodes were entertaining and it featured some cool designs/fights. While characters were paper thin deep,I ended up liking most of them (even that fat kid) because no one was too annoying. It felt like someone mixed an MMO with a Super Robot series and put dozens of Gundam references into it. I expected shit and got a fun show instead.

I'm 7 episodes in Re-Rise and I think it's absolute trash. Even if you take out the furries, all characters are unlikable and have badly written "redemption" arcs. I don't want to see them succeed because their goals are either unclear or weak. They look OLDER than the previous series yet act more childish. The plot drags too much by trying to be serious yet it fails because the writing is very weak (even for a kids show). But more importantly, with the exception of the Core Gundam (cool gimmick), all main gunpla are hideous and the budget seems to have been cut in half.
My question is: should I stick with it? Does the series get better in the rest of the episodes and its second season? I've read it really pays off at the end but then again people were calling Re-Rise the second best in this sub-franchise and to me it's way worse than TRY (which I already disliked) so far.

>short of doing a full new build or redesign.
And that's exactly what the vast majority of those suits are in those shows. They are heavily customized tricked out versions of pre-existing kits. Stuff that probably had a lot of trial and error in figuring out what stuff works together with, what improved the suit in which ways, and so on.

And yes taking a few hours after a damage occured wrecking parts to replace parts is all I imagine what it would take to replace in show. That's how long it usually takes even with Battlebots due to having replacment stuff prepared ahead of time. But again the combination of the time building the thing in the first place along side the rush of the competition makes things hit harder seeing the damage done. Regardless of how easy a fix it is.
>>
>>18976925
in both case, as someone who has customize kits before, the most time consuming aspect of customization is figuring the design and see what's work best. Once you got it all down remaking the redesigned part is easier as you have already figured out the step you need to take.

So some time ago I finished SDF Macross, and I didn't care for it that much. It had some nice points, but the last 13 eps were some of the worst things I have sat though. That being said, since I am an open minded person, and SDF isn't my favorite thing of all time, I started feeling curious about the rest of the franchise. What am I in for? Are they any good? Do they all share the same timeline?

DYRL is amazing and definitely worth watching.

Macross II is the only non-canon entry. It's kinda mediocre, but it has some really cool mecha designs.

Plus has some amazing animation, but I don't much care for the story and characters. Movie version is better, imo.

7 exists in a weird quantum state where your opinion on it changes whenever you observe it. I found it boring as fuck to watch, but after finishing it I looked back upon it with fondness.

I'd rate Zero as the worst entry. The lack of music really kills my interest in it. If you want to watch it I'd say watch it after Frontier for some Protoculture lore.

Frontier and Delta are both my favorites, with Delta having a better overall cast and music, but weaker writing compared to Frontier. Watch both the series and movies for Frontier, watch the movie for Delta.

>>
>>18978366
DYRL is superior to the show
Macross II sucks, no reason to watch it
7 is a mixed bag, best and worst of Macross
Plus is probably where Macross peaks stylistically but the writing is weak
Zero is alright, some fun mid 2000s CG fights
Frontier is probably the most solid show overall
Delta is entirely dependent on whether you can open your heart up to idolshit
