Guys I'm having a bit of a midlife crisis. In not insecure about watching giant robot stuff but I used to love imagining giant robots fighting in my head a lot. And I just realized it's kind of weird. It's normal for /m/ to think about robots beating the shit out of each other a lot right? I used to look out my window and imagine it actually happen there. Or imagine my robot toys running through the grass and exploring at toy scale like toy story. Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this.

Also I feel very insecure about having robot toys all over my house even though its neat and tidy and not a ckusterfu at all especially since I'm packing.

Frankly, if you’ve never had your imagination light up by something you enjoy, I’d think there’s something wrong
get a grip dude, you're 40 (why are you still here?). you're too old to be insecure about bullshit.
Same here.
Also, I've been having lots of dreams where I pilot mobile suits since the quarantine started.
I also had a dream where I fucked the newtype ghost of my high school crush, who recently moved three blocks from where I live irl, before avenging her death by doing my own version of the waverider crash
Point is, you could be more autistic, OP, you could be me.
Look up the MBTI personality types.

It is all about preferring what is in your head vs what is in front of you.

As we get older, we learn to balance both faculties so that they complement each other.

Talking about geek stuff or philosophy to someone who is more interested in the matter that is urgently in front them is what people call being autistic.

It is about communication. Shared sensations are shared. So if everyone in the lunch room is watching the news and talking about, that is the shared sensation. If one lone wolf guy is in his head thinking about mecha, then they guy does not have the shared sensation which leads to social awkwardness.

How bout you do something more physical like martial arts or gardening or woodworking as a hobby? What got me out of video games was swordsmanship because originally video games served my desire to fight and level up, but I could do that in the actual world though a swordsmanship club.

Mecha is a bit tough but since mecha are humanoids, they probably represent your desire to fight and pursue something. Cherish your career more or pick up a hobby that brings out similar energy and meet the needs as much as mecha does.

What a comfy feeling. Sure made road trips fun as hell just for the mecha battles that I'd imagine up during them

Does /m/ have any thoughts as to what essential Sunrise series there are? Preferably leaning towards older classics

Some colonies gets taken over by a dictator who decides to use them as a foothold to take over the entire earthsphere. Thats the commonality between all of them except Jupiter, which was just asspain over only getting real support from Earth once their operation started proving valuable and viable and their goal was to completely destroy the earth, not conquer it.

To get rid of the fairy bread in Australia.

Just as how oranges are the reason why everyone dies in Evangelion, fairy bread is the reason why Lalah, Four, and Quess have wings.

Tomino wants his fucking fairy bread. It's the reason why everyone flies at the end of Ideon.

>Watanabe: If I'm not wrong, Lilithmon debuted in the Pendulum Progress. By the way, Lilithmon's name and base idea was inspired by a robot anime that was popular around that time. Speaking of which, I had initially designed Andromon as a quadruped, and got scolded by Volcano Ota-san for it. "Isn't this design just an exact copy of that?" Though that was what I had in mind while drawing (laughs). And so, Andromon ended up in a standing pose. I'm not sure why, but I'm quite fond of Andromon myself.

What could they be?

The CGI reboot of Superbook was lame. Flying House and Superbook are great Christian anime.

I always thought that the Little Prince was also a Christian anime. Especially since it has that World Masterpiece/Yasuhiko feel/look to it.
yes, like evangelion...

For those that haven't heard of Steambot Chronicles, its an old PS2 game about you being a dude who rides around in a mecha car and beats up bandits and commits terrorism. Also you join a band and can own an apartment and can romance some honies and dig up fossils and artifacts to donate to a museum.

Last I heard about Steambot Chronicles 2 was that they managed to recover the data they had lost in the tsunami, but weren't planning on finishing the game despite it being 90% done.

Anyone else play Steambot Chronicles, or the PSP game Battle Tournament?

Hello /m/,
I come to you in a time of great need! I cannot find any way of watching the original 1979 Gundam, without paying $70 on Amazon for a DVD copy. I have seen the first 3 episodes on Youtube, but the rest are blocked. Is there any way to stream or watch the episodes online? I don't want to use The Pirate's Bay, because i'm a pussy and because I want to view it through legal means. I would really like to get into Gundam, and i would like to start at the first one.
Thanks in advance

Direction this episode was pretty weak, the slowmo didn't work, cutting back and forth between characters attacking the camera made it look like they were having a slapfight, at least flipman stepping on Amou's head was cool.
I'm pretty sure Hyuga has to survive since he's the one chasing the mystery.
Nagumo is clearly going to get killed by Amou and have some kind of brotherhood moment since they've been using Amou and Kuon as contrasting elements.
Kuon is probably going to either kill a horror with the sword or be the one to kill spiderman leaving us with Amou, Takane, Kuon, and Hyuga. Amou and Kuon are the center for most of the promo material so one of them is going to become the vessel for whatever is inside the Garo(?) armor while the other one is actually going to be Garo.
Hyuga's the serial killer, Nagumo's the e-celeb trying to figure things out.
Kanata and the two randos are dead next week the only mystery is either Hyuga or Nagumo dies. So either Takane/Hyuga or Amou vs Kuon/Amou or Nagumo for the semi finale before the finale.

Yes, 2 units. Kou uses it as a scout plane and then the zeek spy hijacks the other but his zeek friends backstab and shoot him down
Then why have wings at all? In that case the V2 makes an even stronger case for it's core fighter going all in on the sleek low drag profile. I will say though it's cockpit is horrendously dumb taking another look at it. You have the tinniest sliver of forward visibility- the V1 seems only slightly better in that illustration but in the gunpla you see hardly any difference. While the UC timeline is highly visual range based combat why even have a glass cockpit (literally, the canopy) if the setting defining mobile suits have accepted camera feeds sent to displays as the standard visual system for control?
>Then why have wings at all?
Control surface for manuevering.
The minovsky craft just helps it keep altitude
that peeking gundam head is what makes it charming though, being able to use the head vulcans while in core fighter mode is cute as fuck.

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.

that's anime directors streching the material as much as they can.

because a decent chunk of them are autistic losers who weren't socialized enough when they were young.

No it wasn't, Frontier is solid dogshit throughout

Finally finished Victory Gundam, and oh boy was that finale something.
I really liked this show, but man was it plagued with writing problems and just strange choices overall.
I mostly took issue with how Zanscare's characters were written, but it got really bad in the last 3rd or 4th of the show. Mainly Katejina and Chronicle. Katejina's development especially felt nonsensical and Chronicle gets sidelined pretty hard until the finale which sucks because he was easily one of the more interesting Zanscare characters.
I was aware that this is the one that came out during the peak of Tomino's depression before going into it and it really shows towards the end.

The beginning of the show was top fucking tier though, I really loved the idea of the LM being a smaller rebel faction like the rebellion in SW and only surviving by using guerrilla tactics and scraping by most enemy encounters.
The LM crew were a great supporting cast, the white ark team became one of my favorite crews in Gundam after this.
The show's OST was also real great, reminded me a lot of old orchestral music from the 50s.
I think it wrapped up pretty well though, and I was pretty satisfied with the story as a whole.
This is all the Tomino I think I can handle for a while though, I'm really looking forward to watching Turn A.

Jesus. You're so right.
How is Victory Gundam? Just finished F91 recently after having finished the original UC quadrilogy and side stories.
It’s good. I wouldn’t say perfect, but it’s only problems are that it’s boring at times, and sometimes confusing.
It’s got some amazing imagery, especially towards the end.
I'd say it's pretty good and at least worth a watch.
It has some glaring writing issues that I mentioned in the OP and >>18566462
But a lot of the other aspects of the series hold it up where those were lacking so the overall package still ended up very satisfying.
Yeah, what happened with his dad was always confusing. Seemed like there were disagreements somewhere in production that never got rectified

I use tartar sauce on fries more than ketchup on fish.
I haven't been to a fish fry in too damn long.

Ranch dressing is somewhat of a stereotypes for us Americans as well. Europeans in particular seem to think we chug ranch with one hand and fire off guns with the other.
I forgive them for thinking it considering this is what our commercials for ranch look like.
>Ranch dressing is somewhat of a stereotypes for us Americans as well. Europeans in particular seem to think we chug ranch with one hand and fire off guns with the other.
I had to look up what that even was. If there's a stereotypically American condiment after ketchup, I'd say it's barbecue sauce.
Isn't it funny that now that he's stopped seething for a few days I've started to feel less motivated to keep this up. Just goes to show you that ignoring it really is the key and giving it attention only makes things worse. But most people have too big an ego, they can't resist saying something.

Why are the Ghost in the Shell threads on here so amazing? I've had some pretty good conversations there considering many of them are essentially waifu threads. Not that there's anything wrong with wanting to pat Motoko on the head, you dorks seem like pretty cool dudes even as I keep crashing in gushing over autistic goth Major from the movie and asking rather serious questions about her.

I dunno, I just wanted to get it off my chest.
