Everything looks good except for his face and dragon mode neck so it turned me off from buying this. Maybe if we get a Cryotek? It was one of my favourite toys as a kid so I'm a bit picky
The dragon neck looks fine, I don't know what you're talking about. Leagues better than the stupid rubber garbage the original had.
It looks like G1 Megatron wearing a Beast Wars Megatron costume he bought at Spirit Halloween.

Just finished Schwarzmarken, I like it slightly more then TE in that it's more exciting. But everything feels kind of meaningless knowing that Europe falls anyway. Only saving grace at the end is that around 50% of people were able to evacuate, and they say that if it was still GDR, they probably would've all died.
i agree, schwarzesmarken had the tension and stress element that TDA and TE really lacked thanks to being on the frontlines and being in a communist/socialist hellhole where they're under constant surveillance from the Statsi and etc
it also had a crazy strong start in the first game with the ground mooks getting massacred by the BETA whilst the 666 fly by ignoring them whilst this banger played
Yep, I think Muv-luv work is best when the setting is at it's bleakest. Personally I find stuff like Extra and Altered fable to be really boring.

TDA, MLA, and Schwzmarken are where it shines best. When shit is hitting the fan everywhere you just gotta persevere.

Is this even fantasy? Because it's supposed to be taking place in the post-apocalyptic far future. Kind of like mixing Mad Max with Getter Robo.

But Blame was such a success that he was able to quit his job and he also didn't really like drafting boring commercial buildings for rich boring clients
my only exposure to him was the abara manga and a few chapters of the sidonia manga and watched the anime a bit, not sure if he improved or not but I agree with you, shit was confusing but his art is great
I wished for it and I like it
this guy looks eerily like my cousin
even down to being bald
sidonia looks great though. you're missing out.

What's your favorite /m/ opening?

This is very subjective, but I can't be the only one who feels that mecha anime openings and soundtracks are on different impact level compared to many other anime.

Anime Janai, Just Communication, Rhythm Emotion, Dreams, Yuusha-Oh Tanjou, King Gainer, You get to Burning, Ignited, Colors, etc.
Maybe I'm just nostalgiafagging, but I instantly fell in love with some of these songs even though I didn't watch the related anime.
Is it something about mecha anime composers? Or am I just being biased?

Victory Gundam’s opening is the only opening you’ll see me singing during karaoke
Century Color makes me a bitch every time I listen to it
And I can’t listen to any GaoGaiGar opening that doesn’t have the singer screaming Goldion Crusher or saying Big Bang anymore.
This one's a real classic. Gotta be right up there.

The J-10X TSF has no reason to be this cool. It's a shitty grunt from a waifubait sidestory rip-off of Macross Plus. I think it's the weirdo spider VR headset look on the head and chest that does it. It really looks way more more cold and detached than the more "heroic" TSFs in Muv-Luv.

>It's a shitty grunt from a waifubait
Well, this Chinese TSF is the rarest successful conversion, without major design changes, of a gunfighter-mecha into a melee model.

The multi-eyedness, against the background of various monovisors, looks very memorable and, moreover, quite functional in terms of a battle inside the universe.

Cute Chinese pilots also add charm to it ... unlike Japanese doll-like bitches and their ugly colorful mechanical samurai

It was curious to find out how, in the event of further development of the franchise, the authors will be able to justify the emergence of a new generation of TSF in China in the absence of economic reforms and the industrial base of "our" Beijing, not to mention the total dependence of all almost destroyed countries on Washington prescribed in the canon?
Don't you people have a general for this? Go back there.

Your will is weak, as evidenced by this irrational appeal to an extrinsic quality you believe to exist, albeit erroneously.
Majority of western giant mecha design have been this ostrich-like structure. Why the fuck do western designer like Ostrich that much? Those big birds can't even carry heavy weight on their backs.
Yes i exist. Live with it, sucker
I don't know who you are and don't particularly care who you identify yourself as.
You acted illogically, I called you out, you seethed.
I win.
no, what makes western mecha so consistently ugly is the fact that they're literally helicopters w/ legs.

no the fuck they aren't, the designs are terrible because they almost never know wtf they want to look like. In the example >>21161626 it has "arms" the hang off the top and even "elbows" but they just end in weapons that don't need that kind of articulation, you could have just stuck them on the front.

And with the more humanoid western designs, they have human proportions sort of but walk like they need to shit really bad with their arms tucked in the side. Literally it achieves an almost uncanny valley effect if it was applied to mecha engineering.

Japanese mechs are ridiculous only in the sense that they achieve a full range of human motion complete with many of the subtle gestures a person would make but the actual designs are built around that ability in mind. That's why fingers make sense on them.

Hawken's designs are actually great because the designer(s) knew they wanted the mechs to appear is utilitarian as possible, so they're essentially just a legged turret and they look great.
