I don't have an autistic irrational hate of CG in my shows like most on /a/ and here so I've been loving it. Though with that said, while I do think the CG in this is fairly decent, I wish it was more on par with Majin Bone's. My missing Majin Bone is partly what got me to watch it and is why I compare it. It deserved to be more popular.
This, 86 and Rumble Garandoll might end up becoming my fav /m/ shows in this season
Im fine as long the power-ups (if any) arent just plain recolors.
>. I'm surprised this was even picked up by Sentai.
I'm not. For a while now they've resorted to picking up whatever the big boys CR, Funi and Netflix didn't want to pick up,. like Megami-ryou, Redo of Healer, Getter Arc or this.
All their recent simulcast shows are this kind of "niche for several reasons so it falls below the radar of the big boys" kind of show
That's some awful taste you got there.

25 replies and 8 images omitted. Click here to view.
it's the most defining feature of this design as the few images of it were spread around for years all over the internet, it only makes sense that they would still give it the AK rifle in model kit form
The mythology of th AK47 is rather exaggerated. Where it excelled was reliability, in terms of putting a hole through a target at range it was kinda just ok but really the whole point of the design was to come up with something that could survive being given to a conscript pulled from the peasant rank and file, the kind of person who would abuse the fuck out of their gun and would consider cleaning and maintenance to be a suggestion at best.

It solved for reliability while other guns were solving for stuff like weight, accuracy, form factor...

How is this not a gundam? Genuinely makes no sense.

So...for all intents and purposes Hyaku Shiki might as well be a Gundam. Re-Gz is a Gundam too(fuck Gyunei's fake-newtype ass.), So is Ez8. The only thing stopping them is that they don't have V-fins, and aren't specifically called Gundams.

In the UC there's nothing inherantly special about a Gundam MS that would set it apart from an equally advanced or powerful MS by any other name. This isn't Gundam Wing.

It's just that the name Gundam, and the design cues that come from it, V-Fin, twin eyes, a few recurring details like dual chest vents, is essentially a social meme because the RX-78-2 made such an impression. Initially further pushed as propaganda by the Federation, later when other factions like the AEUG started making their own Gundam type MS, the meme had become a symbol larger than the federation. (which for the record, I like to think is why the Federation starts to not push as hard towards making ALL their new MS look like Gundams, the symbol had grown outside of their control.).

Fast forward decades later, a lot of MS that are designed to look like Gundams aren't even officially called them, but nicknamed them because the symbol, though somewhat forgotten, still endures. The League Militare adopts it as a desperate attempt to embolden their massively disadvantaged forces (and why they still call the V gundam Hexa a Gundam despite lack of V Fin. Yes I didn't forget it!)

So in other words, Gundam's just a design cue and a name. Hyaku Shiki was meant to be a Gundam, but because Delta didn't work out but Zeta did, they wanted to make a big deal out of the masterpiece that worked out by bestowing it with the name. That's how I see it.
This makes sense. I wonder if there was any sort of reasoning bc of who the pilot is. Like Tomino said Char can’t have his own Gundam?
Amuro was a famous name for about a decade or two following the largest war in history, but then started to be forgotten.

>Like Tomino said Char can’t have his own Gundam?
Sazabi sorta basically has a fancy V fin, but I think it's also just a recreation of the forward part of the helmet design he wore in the OYW.
I'm not sure if they specifically call it a Gundam in the show(I haven't watched 08th MS in over a decade), but the ez8's full name is generally given as RX-79[G]Ez-8 Gundam Ez8 so it is considered a Gundam even without a v-fin.
It gets more muddled when you consider the mass produced Gundams (not GMs) such as mass produced Z and ZZ Gundams, both of which have Gundam in their name and neither have V-fins.

A combination of well built gunpla being overall sturdier, more smoothly articulated, etc and also the system itself boosts a gunpla's stats based on how much effort/quality it interprets was put into the kit.

Despite his personality Sazaki was also an excellent builder just not as good as Sei. The reason he trounced Sei so hard despite Sei being a god-tier builder is because at the start of the series Sei is a absolute garbage pilot, literally ranked in the bottom 5 in the entire country. Being well built does not make your gunpla invulnerable to damage.

The original really is great and being on /m/ as it aired was an experience that can't be repeated. Its a shame Try and the OVAs dropped the ball so hard and squandered what it had.
To be fair, wasnt Sei also using a snap build wing he literally just built as a display model? Like yeah he's a god tier builder but he isnt just gonna magic a snap built to be better than Sazakis custom Gyan
I'm on episode 2 of try but I like it sofar

This is my guess on what would happen with GG Scirroco and Evil Kamille. Scirroco wouldn't mentally stunt him, just wipe away his memory. This could give him new chances, like us recruiting him

you can't judge a show from 1 episode
Zambot 3 had an really boring first 10 episodes but the rest of the show were amazing.
Mazinger Z first few episodes were really bad too.
Same for a lot of other shows.
Yeah but those weren't made by the creators of Chargeman Ken, maybe it does pick up or get to levels of crazy Ken sometimes reached but I'm just not into it now.
>and it's so boring that I can't watch anything more on the rest of the day
What kind of shitty logic is that? You don't even want to get through your backlog.
What backlog anon? That was my first post in this thread.

A boring show bored me so much that with one chapter/day is enough for my brain.

Let me re-explain that in case you still don't get it: It's not about logic, it's about feelings.

>Why would X design and build such a ridiculously complex machine?
It was a failed attempt at a force multiplier-type MS (i.e a single MS that can split into 2-3 combat-capable independent units as the situation requires) that was eventually perfected with the Victory line.

I guess I can try VLC, have to update it first though. I didn't even try it since I expect it to shit itself as usual.
Has anyone been archiving the english Comic Walker release of Gundam The Origin? They removed all their back issues and I missed sections 89, 90, and 91 because I haven't checked it in a few months. I see there is a release on nyaa but it only goes as far as volume 9 (section 82).
VLC doesn't work, video is choppy and laggy. Just gonna delete it for now and come back to it when I have more time. I know you guys will keep the torrent alive.
Good luck, anon, hope it's still here when you're ready. I'm >>20255069 and I started watching it earlier with friends, for some reason episode 5 is missing subtitles but still haven't had any audio issues yet.


Assuming this gets improved and perfected to the point of mass production, would a mecha with artificial muscles be viable?

Yeah that's my point, why worry about "oh but they are humanoid now!!!"?
Because they look like corpses, which we human have been genetically programmed to avoid.
I love how sensationalist OP is.

It's a fucking cable actuated hand. A WHOLE lot of improvement is needed when actuating the hand takes ups all the space in the forearm. Plus whatever hardware is offscreen. Shit doesn't even have a functioning wrist. /yawn
Isn't the word "robot" derived from the Polish word for "slave" or "worker"? I mean it does sound similar enough to the Bulgarian word for slave which is "rob".
>This artificial muscles robotic arm is operated by water and consumes 200W at peak
>The dumbbell weights 7 kg (15,6 lbs), forearm with hand only 1 kg (2,2 lbs).
>At this moment our robotic arm is operated only by a half of artificial muscles when compared to a human body. Strongest finger-bending muscle still missing. Fingers are going to move from left to right but they don't have muscles yet. Metacarpal and left-to-right wrist movement are also blocked
This holds so much potential
Especially if nuclear batteries would be used for the power source

A lot of those EX skills become much better when altered, so yes, it's worth it.
