I know Uncle Go is still drawing manga, but I don't know how /m/ Yagyuu Hadaka Shinken is. As for Project G (that Grendizer... thing Uncle Go is working on), still no updates on that yet.
It's too soon to tell how /m/ 2023 will be.

Golgo 13's 50th Anniversary was rather uneventful.
I really wish more of his stuff got scanned.

I agree a lot of Uncle Go's /m/anga have been left untranslated. Garla and Kishin are completely untranslated. Z Mazinger and Mazinsaga are mostly untranslated
Yagyuu Hadaka Shinken doesn't even have raw scans, let alone scanlations.

Why do so many people start frothing at the mouth by the mention of the Word of Blake?

To add and consolidate from
Due to closing of FASA everything from the FedCom Civil War forward happened at a TURBO pace. So where the Clans functionally had decade to happen the Jihad certainly did not. Not to mention most of the plot in that time frame didn't seem to make a lot of sense for almost all happening within 30 in story years. We're talking UC levels of WAT and CRAM here.

Some of their near exclusive mechanics, like C3i, are not fun to play against and some feel are significantly under valued for points cost. Especially if you aren't playing with the same tech level. On the tangent of design, the angular "stealth" look of their mechs meant that their minis could be a royal pain to assemble what with the top heavy design set on top of spindly thin whitemetal limbs.

Finally, they were almost all universally evil nutters while desperately trying to be that edgelord from your freshman Western Civ class.

yeah it's a real ghost town
ZetaRebel and Kulot just decided to quit
ZetaRebel is still active on AB and U2 but only in uploading USBD's
I clearly meant the aforementioned releases ITT that were mysteriously scrubbed off the site.
No need to be an arse about it.

I understand quitting, but why delete the stuff that was already there?
They weren't exactly known for their quality releases
Both were known for not even doing the basic work in fixing their broken releases
Got some non-/a/ projects to work on but after them I'm thinking of doing some, probably mediocre, scans of Gundam Thunderbolt. Is there any reason to scan v1-7 that zeonic already did scanlations of, or are they serviceable enough and I should just start at 8?

>he's also not vague so you can't have lorefags the same way the Soulsborne franchise has gotten where they pretty much just write fanfiction in the absence of explicit messaging
isn't that the point of souls storytelling tho? , you are acting as if it was accidental
Yes anon, Miyazaki sat there and said he wants to be so vague that it creates an industry of e-celebs telling people what his story is, including top 10 secrets that you didn't know datamining lore.
No. Not at all. The point of story is to tell a story. It's good if you can leave things for people to wonder about in some ways but the wonder is part of the appeal not retards making wild leaps in logic to explain some minute background detail like it was the Iliad or some shit.

Do you think Aliens have a place in Gundam?
30 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
i think you can clean this idea up to be interesting, but only in a "we're just harping on classic sci fi now" way

UC gundam timeline, non corpeal entities that have been "new types" since their inception show up at some point because of a certain little girl exploding acting like a massive flare. they were hoping to find proof of sentient life like themselves, but are shocked to find a bunch of physical (!) lifeforms in robot suits with a few that can brain wave each other till they're retarded. to figure shit out, one winds up trying a CrAzY pLaN where it hijacks another conveintly existing charclone. mit b cool.
corporeal* goddamn trying to force aliens into gundam made me stroke out.
The idea has been done in Ideon, Macross, Diebuster, 00, and even Turn A in varying ways and levels of success. That's only the anime I could think of quickly, I'm sure there are more he should watch too. Just because his idea is shit doesn't mean I have to give it a meaningful response, Gundam should stay far away from Aliens it's really that simple and 00 proved that already
You're comparing apples to oranges, like you're just seeing the word alien and ignoring everything else to quickly type out a "Simpsons did it" regardless of whether or not it applies to the post you're replying to.
How is having an alien race be an audience proxy that takes no part in the conflict before ultimately leaving and alerting the wider galaxy that humanity is and will forever be an uncivilized culture that should be avoided related in any way to a conflict against an alien invader?
Imagine you are the aliens while watching the show, just make sure to watch the show

Both of Amuro's parents basically left him to his own devices, the White Base effectively became his new family and thus he just chose to fight alongside them.
Katz basically told him to fight back, plus he was being thrown around by corrupt Feddies or Titans anyway, so he might as well join the side that's against them.
He's made Londo Bell, a branch of the federation made up mostly of AEUG and Karab forces, his career. He saw Char was planning shit and of course had to intervene, especially after finding out he was going to throw a rock.

Amuro's hardly an idealist that fights for some cause, he's pretty much just a common soldier who got into pretty big situations. He doesn't have the most purest of motivations and causes, but he's not about to let bad guys do whatever they want.
This desu

What does /m/ think of Now and Then, Here and There?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
I was definitely too young when I first saw it
I absolutely hate that haze effect or whatever, that was so prevalent in the anime in general and mecha in particular at the time.
Gasaraki had it to a lesser degree, but something like Betterman, Ordian or Great Dangaioh was fucking drowning in it.
Unironically horrible and done hetter in dozens of other stories.
I didn't even know this was /m/ related at all.

How would you redesign the Turn A?
51 replies and 15 images omitted. Click here to view.

Because why not? Are you saying the presence of a shield is a bigger or more important similarity than the lack of melee weapons, the shoulder mounted gun, the internal stomach cockpit instead of an external waist one etc? 'Cause that's a weird argument to be making, honestly. I'd hope it's in jest, but the wording seems too confrontational to be a joke.
>hirai turn a
ueeeeghhhh- actually it's not that bad.

I do like that it isn't just making it a generic Gundam face with a slightly different mustache placement. The face looks a lot more grim, and the mustache keeps that swept look. I wouldn't mind seeing more of it, since you can't really see the body in that picture.

All it needs is a thicker, bolder mustache. As-is, it looks too thin and weak and non-committal, like they weren't confident in it and just tacked it on half-heartedly

They are literally talking about how the ZZ Gundam dub is gone because it was stored on just one location. How is that not relevant?
Never said he's wrong though.
Technology was initially his reasoning, but over time he decided that limiting the distribution of the film would transform it into a far more memorable experience.
Gothicmade is a movie the appeal of which is its scarcity.
It might be great film, and kudos to it if it is, but of the appeal of watching Gothicmade resides in the fact that it can be only experienced under very particular conditions, and not its actual quality.
Or, you know, people like Nagano's designs and just want to check it out because of that.
>people want to consume new product not old product
Sad, but true throughout history
>Back in 2012 when 4K resolution and Dolby Atmos were a novelty
Most screenings of Gothicmade were never in 4K or had Atmos, that's just a meme you morons fell for from the Lost Media retards wiki. Nagano had always wanted this to be theaters only from day one regardless of the resolution. Just like how he will never let his model kits be snap-fit toys for babies like Gunpla, or allow any anime of vidya adaptations of his manga besides his doing, Nagano has always been very specific about how you consume his content since the very beginning of his career.

Is 00 Gundam a good place to start someone who's trying to get into Gundam? I figure it's either that or SEED and Gundam SEED is...iffy. Especially since we keep having to tell them to avoid Destiny.

Someone with some sense
The Not Titans are the logical conclusion to the first Season, please try to pay attention to the plot next time you view. And Lyle had already shown up in S1, seems to me you're a dip shit who can't pay attention to shit that was literally on the screen in front of your face.
Sounds right.
I got into Gundam through Build Fighters, but stopped after hearing that episode 23 has so many reference that in order to fully enjoy it I need to watch a good number from the franchise (and it paid off really well). So I had to find a 'first proper' Gundam series. I went with 00. So yeah I would say it's a good starting point although at first I was baffled how the main characters are practically 'terrorists'.
