I just wish they had released it in smaller bits, so that I could justify buying some of it at different times, rather than all at once.

I feel like Sentai fucked up. But it was probably the Japanese rights holders that forced their hand.
I think I recall an attempt at a USA release previous to it that was similarly pitched as having to buy the whole thing at once, too. Might have been around the time AnimEigo put out SDFM with the proto-Kickstarter format

It's hilarious when someone just doesn't fit the mold like that. A good friend of mine is a nice, sane family woman. Husband, kids, dog. As Rockwellian a family as it gets.

She also draws a ton of really intense gore and snuff art that has a very degrading and misogynistic theme throughout.

People shouldn't be judged by their fetishes.
Golden Boy is a very good manga about that, unfortunately most people are plebs who can't actually deal with mature themes and sticks to the OVA, which as good as it is completely misses the point of the manga.

Oh, I completely agree. I'm not judging anyone at all. I'm a degenerate, so it'd be unfair of me to talk shit on anyone. Just saying that there's a disconnect sometimes between what someone is into and who they might actually be.
Oh, I know you Kolchak, I wasn't referring to you, just a general statement, I do agree with you but unfortunately most people do not.

Eh, I found it in a bargain bin. $3.99 still seemed like too much, but a commentary track would have made it worth it.
headcanon she got dumped by a guy in high school after he found out about her love for Alphonse the dog, then she marathoned First and got into robots so cutting her hair short killed two birds with one stone

I actually don't understand the praise and status Might Gaine seems to get in a lot of Brave discussion. It was just as episodic as the ones people complain about like Exkaiser, there was no strong central villain (they tried towards the end) like in e.g. Fighbird or Exkaiser, and the lesser villains weren't fun like in Da Garn or something. Maito was a complete Gary Stu that was incredibly boring to watch and he didn't really have any supporting cast to bounce off him (and the girlfriend was basically a non-character), and the robots also were also completely sidelined in favor of jerking off Maito, which is especially jarring since J-Decker, the series with arguably the best robot characters in the entire series, comes right after.
Might Gaine himself has a fantastic design (and Great Might Gaine gattai is among the best in the series), and the animation quality is pretty good (but hard to appreciate when there's no blu ray), but other than that there's very little appeal I find in it. I'd easily rank it the worst of the lot (though I've yet to touch Dagwon or GGG).
J-Decker and Da Garn being my favorites, for reference.
>It was just as episodic as the ones people complain about like Exkaiser
But its structure actually fits that. You don't have a single evil faction just sitting around, but rather multiple unrelated threats - sometimes further unrelated characters appearing like the episode where the main enemy is the assassin android Yurius.

The show also does a (generally) good job in making most of the later stories stand out from the early ones and adjust things to make it fit - like how you go from Shogun Mifune breaking the railways around Japan or peddling a false religion to making a clone who ends up killing himself to save Maito or using fog that stops all electronic equipment, which is portrayed as dangerous as it should be. And then even further on when he's falling apart and is running out of resources he's reduced back to a comic relief villain with barely any resources who after a couple of episodes ends up caught by the police.

Wolfgang goes from generic mad scientist to getting his backstory revealed as a man lashing out against society but still good at his core, who ends up being forced to continue as a villain due to bigger villains. There is clear progression among most of their appearances even if the stories are standalone.

Catherine is an exception though, her episodes are mostly stale and the weakest part of the show, with only the one where mutant plants take over the city standing out and being different from her usual petty crimes (and even then it was still a silly motivation, just with a larger serious scale).

>there was no strong central villain (they tried towards the end)
They start obviously setting up the main villain from episode 20.

I miss the short stories CB did.
What titles are those?
Onigiri, Dawn of the Breakers and Toreba are their latest titles, I believe. They developed a Switch Onigiri. Breakers and Toreba are also available on Switch/mobile.
Frankly, I don't see why CS can't just copy some of AzurLane's success and do a generous gacha game based on C21/CB/CB2. They had a modest animation and manga department (all those short stories in both video and manga format), and could easily redo the world setting in a more approachable mobile medium; both PvP and an expanded solo PvE.
They already have so many art assets to use, it seems like a good idea to me.

Last I recall, Miri and Dearka were dating between SEED and Destiny, but she dumped him after a heated argument prior to the start of Destiny (with Dearka returning to ZAFT).

I don't recall if Miriallia and Tolle were lovers though. Or if Miriallia hatefucked Dearka prior to dumping him.

He gives Miriallia a taste of the BCC.

Yeah, apparently the Irish were the first to start using the coordiation process in CE.

I still think the best excuse for watching SEED/Destiny is giving yourself context to a decade's worth of doujins. Some of which write the characters better than the show did (not that that's difficult to do).
How bad is destiny?

I lost interest in this series years ago. To me the FMP animes from the 00's will remain as a childhood memory, especially Fumoffu.

But when it comes new material, after this extended gap in time, I dont know if I should congratulate the old die hard fans or just distance myself further.

well if I can play devil's advocate I don't really think a BD fix is really much of an excuse. It's easy to forgive in hindsight but there's not always a guarantee the BD will fix anything and it still paints a very poor first impression.
> I don't really think a BD fix is really much of an excuse
It is though. Everyone does it these days. To the point that its much better to watch anime after it is done airing, to get the higher quality. I haven't watched a single airing show since 2015.

I've been meaning to write a post about mechs for a while now actually.

First off, mechs are definitely very unrealistic and I doubt that they will ever be a real thing. However, that doesn't mean that they're not cool, and a lot of the arguments against their existence are pretty incomplete. I'm just pointing out arguments against their entire existence as a whole (their reason for being is entirely irrelevant).

Some of the standard talking points are as follows:
>ground pressure
A standard Abrams has a ground pressure of 13 to 15 psi according to google (and they weigh 55-60+tons). The weight of a mech is going to be entirely up to fiction so this one is hard to debate. But if a mech has 2 feet that are say 4ft by 7 ft each then you get a surface area of just over 4000 square inches per foot. Assuming that a mech should be capable of standing on one leg, then it could be up to 30 tons per leg for an equivalent ground pressure of an Abrams. Foot size and weight of a mech are entirely variable, but at least it could be within the realm of possibility.

And yes, by every means, I mean every means. What does putting a platform on legs do that putting a platform on wheels or tracks or screws or jets or etc, etc do better? Not in hypothetical "Well if we have super advanced material sceience then it can move around like an infantryman" but actual solid benefits that don't exist in fantasy.

Look I like giant robots as much as anyone, but they're not realistic and we're never going to see them in a military context.

The very second sentence of the OP is literally
>First off, mechs are definitely very unrealistic and I doubt that they will ever be a real thing.

Followed by
>However, that doesn't mean that they're not cool

The point of the thread isn't the plausibility of whether they'll ever be used in a military context, but whether or not it would be possible to exist at all. Reasons are not the point. Also, just because something has been tried and not shown to succeed in the past doesn't mean it can't be revisited with a greater level of success (or rather, a lesser level of failure). VTOL for aircraft has been around since even WWII yet here we are with the V-22 and F-35. Humanity created a pseudo walking steam machine in the 1800s.

You're 100% right that bipedal locomotion is suited for basically nothing mechanical, but that's besides the point.
I feel this is more geared toward bipedel mechs.

This is actually partially addressed in a gundam battle in seed. Aile strike has to compensate its dampeners while in combat in the desert sand.

Keep in mind most ground fights in gundam still involve jetpacks and they can be on low throttle.

Ms-08th team has bigger gundams in the jungle, that one seems more of a weakeness in bipedel robots like youre saying.

Open ending is an ending which leaves the answer to the questions or story, however important, unanswered. The viewers is then forced to either imagine or connect the dots by themselves. Open ending is not appreciated, but is a viable storytelling tool and is important in stories highly reliant on symbolism. Prime example - Gurren Lagann.


AS YOU SEE JUST THINKING ABOUT IT MAKES ME BOIL WITH TERRIBLE HEARTACHE. My heart bleeds for all the poor creators who fail to shine.

This, we should just get Parallel Universes if we get anything at all.
Sequel or Prequel has to compete against the themes of the original while also standing on its own.

You could explore new spiral society but you lack an escalatable conflict- you also lack a way for Spiral beings to progress forward that hasn't already been explored. You can't just have Daryll becoming biggest robot all over again.
>there is an interview where Imaishi says something along the lines of "that was never meant to be the ending or anything, it was just to hype our viewers and sort of tell them "this is the kind of show you can expect from us so grab on to something"

Okay? And? It's misleading. You don't get to director interview your way out of stuff. If it's not explained in the series it's inconsistent and weird.
There's no reason to assume that is how the series was going to end; it could have simply been a single vessel fighting against the Anti Spiral

What happened with the ending of this show? It was pretty damn good until the very end where the ending was trash regardless of what ending you choose, be it the movies or the shows. It's extremely good besides tossing the character development of the main 3 protags in the trash last second.

TV ending doesn't resolve the love triangle and has a ton of build up with no payoff in that regard. Main cast seem like they can't communicate and just compete with each other for fun or something and go nowhere relationship wise. It heavily hints to Sheryl being his choice but it's highly ambiguous.

Movies resolve the love triangle but proceeds to either kill or teleport Alto and tossed Sheryl into a Coma because reasons turning the resolution of the love triangle into a monkeys paw. Everyone ends up alone, dead, or hurt.

They somehow made the second attempt at ending the series worse, did they literally make the TV ending busted in the first place to get people in theaters for some new music and better animation?

Such a disappointing end to something that had so much potential.

A lot of people liked Ikenai borderline, I only thought the second Op and one of the EDs was good, but overall most of Delta's music was just really forgettable to me.
Delta's music was really excessive and sounded all over the place. The melodies were so amateurish it's like they were randomly generated.

Frontier's music was way better not just because it sounded good, but because of how well it was used in the series.
Frontier was really good at tying a lot of its music to emotional moments.
Diamond Crevasse playing when michael dies and when the Macross Quarter leaves the colony fleet.
Aimo whenever Ranka reminisces on her past.
The final battle in sync with the remixes of lion combining with a plethora of other music seamlessly.
The movie went even further with the Sayonara no Tsubasa scene, I can literally hear this webm when I watch it.
It was all so effective, but with Delta they just tossed "random idolshit mix 6" into a jukebox and played it randomly..
