Prove anything you said is real faggot.
I lived in CA for 23 years and then moved, I was sad about it until I realized everywhere with a decent sized city is just as nice. Portland, salt lake, Seattle Boise, tons of TX cities. I fucked more off the boat asian girls in the PNW than SF and LA combined You just have more free gibs. And therefore more facile thinkers. There are obvious reasons why it's the most left state in the past decade. I'll never move back to CA. Even if you do get the blue fin first and I can't surf anymore. Worth it.

Some animation test I did on my Hygogg girl design I drew some 15 years ago.

I plan an attempt to re-animate the antarctic base siege with MS-girls but was thinking of alternative settings like maybe on the beach instead...and maybe a more light hearted silly objective.

your thoughts /m/?

like pottery
This style looks okay but doesn't work for me with Devilman. I don't know, it just doesn't quite fit. Even if Sirene is fucking hot.
>Even if Sirene is fucking hot.
She's fucking hot because she's written that way. It's part of her character. She'd be fucking hot in a novel without any pictures.
iirc aren't the old ovas based on the novels rather than the comics?
I don't know if they were fully based on them, but yes they incorporated scenes and story changes from the novel.

Would it be wrong for me to say Zeta Gundam is good, but overrated?

Fans claim it's the best in the series, but I liked 0079 a lot more. While Kamille is a strong lead, almost of the supporting cast (including the villains) are forgettable. The mech battles aren't exciting, and lack the grit of 0079. The way Zeta kills off characters becomes repetitive. Not to mention some extremely over-the-top, nonsensical moments.

I think if handled better Gundam AGE could've been like the Gundam equivalent of Avatar TLA, a very high quality, but kid friendly show.
From the beginning the show was supposed to be for a younger audience. Bandai wanted to get a hold on the same demographic that IPs like Pokemon and Yugioh have which is why the JRPG was developed and the tri-age arcade game was being pushed so heavily.
It even featured 2 of the youngest MCs in the franchise, and iirc aired in a kids time slot.
But they dropped the ball hard on the storytelling, which was probably their single greatest fuckup.

The other great screwup is that they released the Game way too late. The game was supposed to be one of the pillars of Gundam AGE's multi-media project, but because the game and series having the same main story, they probably thought they could build demand for the game by airing the series first.
But I think the better approach would've been to release the game and then have the series do its own take on that story(This is the same approach pokemon uses, and its worked for them).
Waiting so long probably caused any possible interest in the game from kids to fade away.
Knockoff Jamil was a decent character so of course they just disappeared him after the end of part 1 and then brought him back only to kill him off instantly for no reason later

Finn was a shit character and nothing would have saved him anyway.
nuWars is garbage, because it's garbage.
You can't fix garbage. You throw it away.
I agree, but the seeds for a good character were there. It was Disney's stupidity of not letting a friggin Stormtrooper (one of the only things the old EU never attempted to do properly), a literal nobody, become someone beyond their number. And that was all already squandered by the end of Force Awakens when Rey, who wasn't even supposed to beat Kylo the way Finn wasn't managed to wreck him.
they were enjoyable movies
>Finn was a shit character
He was like Shinn, a character with interesting premise that was shafted for a Mary sue.
He definitely could've been a good character, but they do nothing with him.

Just curious, would Mazinger Z, Great Mazinger and Grendizer have been useful in the UC setting?

What about their allies and other iterations in the franchise like Mazinkaiser and Shin Mazinger, would they at best be useful only in the OYW or could they still be used by the time of CCA onwards?

And what about Dr.Hell, the Mycenae Empire and the Vegans, how would have they stood up to Zeon in the OYW and could they have ever been a threat?

However you want to rationalize it, Mazinkaiser was damaged.
Still, apparently you can just put a dongly bar in the controls and you can have sword matches with no problem.
Read my post again.
Mazinkaiser was damaged.
True, but it was really easily fixed, apparently something like a dongly dildo would suffice...somehow, Mazinkaiser afterwards was jumping and moving just as well as before.

But yes, the controls can get damaged, at least the initial Mazinkaiser could, the movie version is stated to be tougher as it got upgraded.

Which show becomes the funniest with the Akibarangers replacing the main characters?

TIL that there was a manga by Go Nagai named Garla but it was canceled after Nagai had problems with Toei during 1976~1977.
the design of the robot is heavily on based on Grendizer.
can't find more info about it though.

We need Goldrake sequel. Why are theere no studio on Italy that will fund Goldrake sequel or live action if Goldrake is so popular there?
>Who is the pilot of Garla?
Garla is a dinosaur thing. The robot is Big Daitan.
Any known pilot of Big Daitan beside the reference in Mazinger Angel?
Look at the thread. There are lots of images of the pilot.
What? is it the combination of Brave Reideen, UFO Robo Grendizer, Devilman and Godzila?
Sounds like MC got lied on by that priest and died on the magma. MC is not Kouji afterall.

You could do it to acknowledge your abasement towards your technocratic betters, I guess. Or perhaps to publicly conform to the doublethink?

a) Costco won't let me buy their vodka unless I wear one
b) when I'm out biking they keep bugs and shit out of my face
no need to wear a mask, there aren't any 5g towers here
