No love for powered armor? All the coolness of a mecha but without the size and cost issue.

Isekai's popularity peak, at least in Japan, was a good few years ago. Now people are just making Dragon Quest inspired fantasy works. Western weebs are catching the end of the wave as Crunchyroll et.al. try to squeeze a few more eggs out of that golden goose.

The financial reason there was so much isekai, Narou being a webnovel to franchise pipeline, stopped because Narou asked people to stop submitting isekai to them.
>>
>>20858038
Nah. Wrong. Many isekai anime/manga productions are still at the forefront. It'll wane, but not right now.

Is this really how people judge compilations now? You can't keep saying "it was missing X" or "I can't believe they cut out Y". They might have been your favorite scenes, but you need to stop directly comparing it to the TV series.

Instead, you need to ask yourself if the film work as a STANDALONE product. Does the story flow properly. Do they tell a story that works for a 90+ minute film?

Fuck no. I can't even imagine how horrible ANT would be as an introduction to Zeta.

Why does a giant anti metal gear, metal gear need a roar function exactly?

you really can't apply logic to anything involving a metal gear, they're just cool and that's all that needs to be said

>>20854534
Does it have a dedicated roar function, or is that just repurposing other abilities it has? Ray has some pretty strong pumps for the hydrojet propulsion and water cutter beam. Maybe that's just the pump sucking air and making a roaring sound. No dedicated function, just Liquid activating the pumps on land because he knows what sound it will make.

if your machine does not make a cool sound then it's not a cool machine, simple as.

What the hell are these things? People rendered in cartoony style? Robots? Are these the new Tachikomas? At first I thought they were just AI programs but they seem to have physical bodies?

Also, how the hell did we get from the original manga to Man-machine interface? Last we saw Motoko she had merged with robo-god and was ready to take on the world, will the gap be explained? Did I miss a part of the story?

>but they seem to have physical bodies?
I'm pretty sure they're virtual AI constructs and have no physical bodies at all.
>Also, how the hell did we get from the original manga to Man-machine interface?
Shirow likes his timejumps between volumes. He autistically plans out everything about the world and story and then just gives us snippets of it.
>>
>>20849004
I just finished MMI tonight. I basically came to same summary as you did. Motoko has created copies in an attempt to play out a debate between whether to continue to 'expand,' with Millennium (another Motoko clone) and Motoko Aramaki which is more about individualism. It ends with Aramaki winning out, Kusanagi (the original) using the research of silicone based life to try and truly create a new being. I guess she succeeds with the girl at the end being 'hatched.' Aramaki doesn't seem to be fused back away either, instead deciding to go to space and help Kusanagi create silicone based life. The tanuki girl watches that attempt, and judging by the explosion of Motoko's and all the Shinto references to creation, she succeeds.

That's my take away by the end. But idk. What a weird sequel.
>>
>>20849008
>he's worried about showing too much skin in a panel with a character wearing a Burkha
I think part of the burka was to hide the identity of Antares, who was another Motoko clone. But it is funny to see him say he doesn't want to show too much skin, just for the next chapter to have a panel with tentacle lesbian piss play.

You should know that it's really boring. And the story is completely pointless. You literally spend as much time learning about how much a kid likes ice cream as you do playing the mission after that scene.

A lot of the content they added post-game is mostly multiplayer-oriented like PvP and a randomized dungeon crawling thing for more parts but the majority of the playerbase has already done everything to death so the community has been pretty much dead since 2020

The Zentradi are cannon fodder. The Protoculture their creators do not see them as people but equipment.

The segregation of males and females was t prevent the Clones from banging with each other producing children giving them reason to rebel. In the end the Protoculture recinded the order not to interfere with Miclones as the extradimensional Vampire's the Protodevlin has brainwashed troops of Zentradi and Protoculture. Not all fleets got the order not to interfere with the Protocukture again after the Protodevlin were defeated. And they became collateral damage when the Zentradi continued their war with the Supervision Army.

Last thread hit the bump limit and is about to be autopruned. So far we're getting action every episode this season. It's nice to have a straight forward real robot title, well done Xebec under the command of Sunrise.

The /a/ threads for this show is only visited by /m/-tards by this point. Nobody on /a/ watches or cares about it, because the show is beyond boring and dull, which is why the threads die within 60 or less posts. And whenever extremely obvious shitposters from /m/ appear who are just as dull and unfunny like this show, that just kills the thread there even faster.
The foul stench of necrobumping plagues the /a/-threads for kyoukai senki.

Sup /m/. It's been some years since I came here, want to ask what about real mechs? I remember two teams, one from Japan and other from USA put together some mechs to fight, it was fucking fun (also fucking lame). So what happened? It's the age of real fighting robots over already?
