Bumblebee catered to the geewunners (for most of the g1 cast sans bumblebee and blitzwing) while retaining the bayformers style for the rest so you get a frankenstein of styles with the obnoxiousness of geewunners claiming the prequel scene carried the whole movie.

I don't understand why this show is not more discussed here.
It should have attract at least as much interest as Muvluv.

By the way, we now have the answer to what the Admiralty Code is and what it's meant for.
Rather expected in insight but that's how you know is planned ahead and not some last minute idea.

>Now (You) make me a seaQuest & Pacific Rim crossover and we will see how it hold together.
This is super simple. Either the Pan Pacific Defense Force accidentally creates a rift to the seaQuest universe in a failed attempt to strike at the Precursors directly, or a naturally forming rift in the seaQuest universe (which is a thing) connects to the Pacific Rim universe. What's fun is if you set the seaQuest stuff in (post-)season 3 so you can get the evil Australians in there too. Maybe have the Precursors try to attack the seaQuest universe too, only to get shot up by the BS liquefy matter torpedoes.

>>19561795
>See, I hate whoever abused "waking up in a simulation" to the point people can't imagine it making a good plot. Likely happened after Matrix.
No one abused it. It has the same fundamental flaw as "it was all a dream": it renders all the characters' efforts meaningless because someone can just pull the plug and end the simulation, and there'd be no lasting effect on the outside world.

Of the three scenarios you posted, scenario 2 would actually be the most workable as an alternate season 3 (literally just do the "seaQuest dumped on Earth 10 years later" thing, but with the Fog as the villains) and just have the Fog be an ancient evil that awakens.

The problem is that, as a fusion story, where you're combining two settings and saying they exist in the same universe, the Arpeggio characters are probably going to be the ones that diverge the most from the source material. Like, at best, you *might* be able to get them at their personality default in their first appearance, despite shrinking down the time span for the development of Mental Models, but that assumes that the audience is down for seeing how those characters diverge from their canon versions.

(1/2)
>>
>>19561795
>>19561978
The thing is that whole appeal of a crossover is to have the characters and stuff from both franchises interact with each other, and for most people, they want to see the version of the character that's been fleshed out in the source material interacting.

Yeah, there's a certain subset of nerds who'll be interested in completely different character interpretations as part of a big What If Alt History scenario*, but they're typically a much smaller part of the audience. Somewhat less of a problem if you're writing fanfic vs making something that actually has to be marketable and sell, but it still keeps you from getting the maximum amount of views.

This is why AoBS being a simulation universe sucks, because it effectively limits the amount of universes you can crossover with that allow for actual interaction with the canon characters to a bunch of space operas where they can hook up a holoprojector/cloning/android making machine to whatever's running the simulation and get them out of there.

*There's literally a 30+ chapter Gundam IBO/Mass Effect story floating out that uses no canon ME characters at all that's basically this.

I can't judge seaQuest but I suspect we can't fail with Kaiju, it's an easier trope than a sentient armada.

>It has the same fundamental flaw as "it was all a dream"
Just as I feared,
They are fundamentally different, putting those two as equivalent is a damn memes!
It make you exclude entire realm of ideas as "it mean less" before you even try.
I blame Star trek, story with respawn or shit story only using it as an ending for the buzz or distract from a shit plot.

A dream flow on raw imagery and emotion, it hardly have rules, time is irrelevant, it is either symbolic, extremely personal, literally a time-out from the plot.
A simulation require rules and admin role. Everything that happen have a reason, simulated-time is a critical factor and there's no discontinuity with the plot...

>no lasting effect on the outside world
...as changing a character mind is the most lasting effect you could ever need! (ex: time dilatation in/out)
Being able to do this without affecting the "outside world" is a feature, not a flaw.

>I blame Star trek
Star Trek didn't use that plot outside of one or two shit episodes. You might be thinking of Dallas, which was a soap opera that retconned at least one season of TV with "it was all a dream."

Star Trek also literally did "characters in a simulation discover they're in a simulation" a few times, and everyone was fine with it, because that was the entire point of the episode. They didn't shoehorn the entire series into being a simulation, which is the moment audiences just check out. Which is understandable, because A) you probably didn't get them onboard with that premise from the start, and B) you just established that literally anything can happen to the characters and setting outside of the characters' control.

That last one tends to make people realize that things like stakes and drama are meaningless when the rules can be rewritten at any moment.

>...as changing a character mind is the most lasting effect you could ever need! (ex: time dilatation in/out)
Sure, multiple scifi shows do entire episodes inside the characters' heads, and its fine, because the rest of the universe still exists. Spending one episode inside a person's head is fine, because the audience is learning about them. Those episodes are smaller pieces of a whole that is operating within a ruleset established by the writers, who have an unspoken contract with the audience that the story universe works in a certain way to preserve "realism."

>Speak for yourself, you are complaining of making an explanation for something what stories leave to magic, lampshade and disbelief "Oh no! we somehow teleported in another world!" (Thessalonica Legacy).
Honestly, unless you're making a point of having the characters in the story duplicate whatever's allowing for people to jump between universes or its causing a problem, no one gives a shit about how the crossover works. Everybody knows its just a window dressing that has to be acknowledged before the main action can happen.

Someone that only got into Gundam last year, slowly going through UC stuff.
I wanna watch Origin and Unicorn next but I've got a question.
They appear to have OVA and TV versions, can anyone please list differences between them? I mean other than obvious which is cutting into TV-sized episodes with new OPs and EDs.
Reason why I ask is because I recall reading somehwere before that there were some scene or music changes or something in the TV versions vs the OVA ones.
I'm mostly interested in any potential Origin changes specifically right now but if someone could also list Unicorn ones I'd be very grateful.
Please forgive my newfaggot question, but I wasn't able to find any concrete info by googling.

I'd say less than decent
the Laplace's Box reveal was sort of a no-brainer but an okay way to end the conflict. Granted it's an embarrassment that they've been milking feds vs zeeks for so long, but at least a narrative (no pun intended) nail in the coffin to that argument is there.
it's alright because of the excellent animation, but it's squandered outside of the few good combat scenes.
the

CCA was the actual end to the conflict, Unicorn is just a fantasy spin-off, and a waste of time :\
