>*explodes in your path*
an army of Leos would wreck shop in most other gundum universes
they have very good performance and are light as shit
they underpeform like crazy in wing if you compare their on screen to their fluff statistics

You could say the same about any of the grunts in F91, Victory, G or X. All of them had grunts with good performance that weighed about 7 tons empty like the Leo. It's not until SEED that the world building reset unit weights to about the level of 0079 i.e. roughly 70 or 80 tons instead.

You could probably argue it about some 00 suits too, since GN drives manipulate weight to facilitate agility abd flight.

Been away from /m/ for a few months. Anyone here read Apocalypse Zero now that it's been fully scanlated in English the last couple days? What do you all think? Finished the third volume today and am loving the fuck out of it. Totally worth the eleven some odd years I've been waiting for someone to finish it.

Finished up Giant Gorg today. Pretty good series even if it goes just a tad off the rails near the end. I did enjoy the kind of old-school pulp adventure vibe it has for most of the show, though. Gorg itself is a great design, too. It's simple, but still memorable.
Yesterday I watched APEX (made a topic on it), The Dustwalker, and Pig Hunt. Enjoyed the first two, but the third was meh.

New story takes place in 0086. Peche joins the Titans. Rosamia, Nanai, Loren Nakamoto, Jona and the other Narrative cast are present. Augusta Labs gives her Engage Zero psycommu weapons based on Bishop/Zeong data.

Nanai was in Char's Deleted Affair with glasses looking all moe and shit. I hate stuff like this. It makes the universe feel smaller.
Engage Zero gunpla.

As nice as this is, I'd probably enjoy it more if UC Engage got a NA release.

Is anyone gonna go see Doan's Island when it's in theaters next week?

I really wanted to go, but work been kicking my ass all week. Restricting it to only 2 showings that are an hour drive away made it a hard sell.

I get why, it's niche as FUCK. But I still wanted to watch it in a theater. Oh well. Got the HG Doan Zaku waiting for me to build, so there's that.
why did everyone in the movie have such sexy legs and calves goddamn
EFSF knew what they were doing with their uniforms
> I think they spent a little too much time focusing on the kids and they should have focused more on Doan's war flashback
i thought so too at first, but thinking about the story as a whole i think it was right to slant the balance the other way. most of the scenes with the kids were there to show doan as this genuine father figure, strong but also nurturing in a way the rest of the adults struggle to be. (hence the scene with bright thinking about the slap) really the kids are the point of the story, emotionally, since in it its being allowed into their family as an outsider that lets amuro start to deal with his feelings of abandonment and struggle to belong without relying on the gundam so that he's able to really appreciate it when the rest of the white base crew does come back to get him. so that theme is more important than getting into the nitty gritty of his past more than they did

as an aside one small touch here i really liked was how the screaming kept playing when they cut back to his face, very effective

overall I liked it, wish the editing was a bit better so there weren't so many fade to black scene transitions, but a fine little extra slice of 0079.

IIRC there was meant to be an extra episode that saw everything wrapped up nicely and properly but the Olympics were scheduled to air the day the final episode did and not wanting to conflict with it, they merged 23 and 24 together, so the story kinda just ends
I was talking about the manga.

ITT we post evil robot duplicates of main characters and good robots.

I like how in Digimon alt colors are just other evolutionary branches or versions trained under different conditions and other attributes (because Virus-types are not bad and they are an important part of the ecosystem).
Then you get people fucking up their partner's training or something happens in the plot and the 'wrong/bad counterpart' is a twisted, new version of what it is supposed to evolve into.
ChaosGallantmon is just a Virus flavored version of Gallantmon, whose true counterpart is Megidramon, for examole.
how mature

An unappreciated masterpiece

pacing issues or failure to deliver the whole story without losing any element of it. CCA really could have used slower pacing and a bit more context instead of throwing us into the middle of action, skipping over Char's reappearance.
F91 is a fucking mess. I love it, but it's a mess.
00 Movie does all the things it set out to do but most characters really suffer in the development aspect.
Narrative actually does a really good job as a movie.
Oddly enough the reverse is also true - both EW and Thunderbolt are better as movies than as the OVAs
>pacing issues or failure to deliver the whole story without losing any element of it. CCA really could have used slower pacing and a bit more context instead of throwing us into the middle of action, skipping over Char's reappearance.
Why are these things important? Context can be known by what is already in the film.
On what grounds do you argue that CCA is not the "whole story"? Do you know what editing is? Do you know that some things may have more importance than others? Must you be told things as a child need be told things?
A scene with people discussing that Char has reappeared would be inane, asinine, a pointless venture. We can know that he has reappeared by other means, we can know the passage of time without being told verbally that time has passed.
>F91 is a fucking mess. I love it, but it's a mess.
>00 Movie does all the things it set out to do but most characters really suffer in the development aspect.
The characters in 00 are already developed in previous works. The static characters are no detriment to the quality of the film and the characters that undergo change undergo a well-written change.
>Narrative actually does a really good job as a movie.
I have not seen it.
>Oddly enough the reverse is also true - both EW and Thunderbolt are better as movies than as the OVAs
Now, Thunderbolt I HAVE seen; it is worthless garbage, for the most part. A waste of time.
>huurr why is no build up, no development, no context, and no resolution a bad thing duuurrrrr
You're literally retarded.
>Why are these things important?
this is primary school knowledge, fuck off
incredibly solid film, I refuse to believe recaps/compilations can't be art now
