The show was a bit of a slog to get through until the end, but man looking back I really love these characters; their chemistry was really good.

Could, would, should. Hindsight is 20/20.
>Hindsight is 20/20
will you say that when you manage to make a post that sounds like a straight person made it?
I don't have a problem with any of those plot points, what you listed is a lot of the good stuff.
When people say they think M7 should be shorter they don't mean those plot points need to be cut.
The show's main fault is how it drags things out, and how repetitive a lot of the episodes are. The forced battles and reused stock footage pad the series unnecessarily.
Like>>20256790 suggested the series would've fit well into a 36 episode span.
All you'd really have to get rid of are a few battles and episodes of Basara singing the same songs over and over again.
For example I remember there was one stretch of episodes where all Basara did was just sing to Sivil when she was comatose and it felt like that could've been shortened a lot.
Projecting a whole lot there anon.

Anyone else notice a significant downturn in mecha fansubbing recently? Aside from Dragonar being finished earlier this year it seems like every group and project went to a snail's pace.

>Ive been doing sone fantranslating on the side for years,
No you haven't
Playing the guessing game on 4chan is and will always be cringe. Been doing it for more than 10 years and counting, both public and for personal use translations.

As if that werent enough, you went for a strawman argument. Thats strike 2

Still waiting for examples of botched fansubs, genuinely interested but it seems to me youre just full of shit
I fansubbed a few things for ARR. My first job was for Steel Jeeg, mostly trying to keep lines and names consistent while correcting grammatical and punctuation errors. To see these errors unchecked check out their Shin Tetsujin 28 releases. Anyway I made some errors mostly through identification (I thought the Bronze Bell was called chrysalis by the heroes) and what was obviously the Orochi Fortress was translated as spooky fortress and I left it alone at first. I also translated Emperor Ryuga to Dragon to keep in spirit with Mazinger antagonist translations. Barom 1 was a lot of shooting in the dark, at one point in episode 3 two separate lines by two people were said, but I assumed it was by the same person so I decapitalized a sentence. Not sure how Baldios was since after I sent the script for episode 30 Discotek announced their license for the series, but ARR did the last four eps and released a batch anyway. Was pissed. Trider G7 I thought was mostly decent at first for something fully translated in five weeks, but around the mid 30s I noticed errors I should have caught with ep 42 or 43 (the one that parodies Empire Strikes Back) being the worst. I also thought the Trider Sword was Saber. I feel ashamed too. One episode of Astro Ganger had a bizzare ass scripting error that was visible the entire time.

I'm sure others can post other mistakes I made, but those are the ones that come to mind. I accepted the editor offer because I wanted myself and others to enjoy these titles. Some have waited a long time and I did it for them. Shortly before I took up that offer I was in a bad place in life, fansubbed titles like Juspion, Goseiger, Go-Busters, they kept me chugging along. If they didn't I would have gave into despair. Someone out there in the future or now probably just needed to try them out for their own sake.
>learn japanese faggot, otherwise don't complain

Why would anyone sane of mind and body want to learn a shit language (at beginner's level) to more or less understand simple cartoons ?
remain oblivious then, it's your choice

Is pic related the first proper mecha?

That's the same fucking thing.
In fact, "mecha" in Japan also includes pretty much every mechanical appliance, machine and vehicle.
In Gold Lightan for example, the main character's dad is said to be great with mechas, refering to cars.
Which is hilarious when you consider Gold Lightan is a lighter.

I wish the mass production guncannon and DT would get new models, too. But they're not important suits, so they'll never sell.

Based, was hoping to see them here. It's really cool to see the concept of a more infantry/support focused suit, and the troop carrying potential is one of my favorite things about it. Wish we had more suits like it besides the guncannon.

A few months ago I was talking with my boss about mecha anime and he showed me some pictures from one of his favorite series'. The robots looked like knights/crusaders sort of like picrel. Also the art style kind of made it look like it was from around the late 80s or early 90s. Does anyone know what the name of the series might have been? I didn't look into it when he showed me and I forgot the name.

I love both Warhammer 40k Knights and the Warmachine Jacks (even when the second are more like glorified magic drones than anything else). The aestethics specially. Shame the first belong to the worse table top company and the second is ded.

Okay Finished uploading my Gatchaman Mecha Kaiju guide over on HR.

Thanks for the uploads. As a fan of Speed Racer Maha Go GO GO! I didn't watch the live action movie as I didn't want a cartoon movie based on a cartoon, I wanted something like La Mons or Grand Pre with a little Death Race 2000 in it.

What's the average age of the people in /m?

I think we skew older than most boards.
>Some say the bulk of the money went into the cast and soundtrack. Sounds like a BS explanation to me, but that's the only one I've heard.
Hm... maybe that budget includes marketing? I heard that one of the reasons why SEED exploded in Japan was due to a heavy marketing push.
All Gundam shows generally have a large marketing campaign. With the The Witch from Mercury have started now with the title and it's a show that will start next year.

Besides Amuro and Bright, what happened to the White Base crew after the events of Zeta. Like during Chars Counterattack, he’s going to drop Axis on Earth, couldn’t Sayla have been there? He might’ve killed her?

What if he didn't die after the crash
God Kai becomes such an omega chad over time. He's like super James Bond with a whip, channeling his mistrust in authority into having dirt on fucking everyone for when its needed.

I could have seen Ryu continue to work with Bright as his right hand man, probably follow him to the AEUG and assuming he lived through that, join Londo Bell as a Ra Calium bridge officer.

So if he survived, he had plenty of time to die other times (though to be fair, he was pretty good at staying alive if it weren't for the fact he had to carry the brat squad through their roughest days. Maybe once everyone learned to carry themselves better he'd stand more of a chance.)

Pretty much this. I personally like to think that Sayla does a lot behind the scenes, even if she chooses to stay away from both direct war and politics. If it were all done all over again I'd really like it if Sayla played a more direct role in things afterwards.

Something kinda worth remembering is that Sayla shared the gold Char gave to her so she could desert and live in comfort with I must assume at least the White Base bridge crew, so generally speaking unless otherwise shown in another series like Katz and Hayato's fates that they're at least living comfortably.
>Said to have a cameo in Unicorn, haven’t seen it yet.
I don't remember that, they did appear in the Last Sun manga though.

For all we know millions of years have passed aliens are long gone and robots were just going with their routine.
There was a twilight episode with similar premise.
