What sets Might Gain apart from the other Brave series?
It seems even more popular than GGG.

You mean aside from stealing the female protag of Escaflowne?
Escaflowne premiered the year after Might Gain.
J-Decker is much better than Might Gaine. Maito is boring as fuck and so are Gaine and the other robots in this show. They have zero personality, plots are really generic until the ending. J-Decker is fun and the AI storyline is a lot more interesting than anything in MG.
I don't think J-Decker did
Neither did Fighbird if memory serves.

>They already have independence

>However, the Federation government's attempts to coerce the Republic into rejoining the Federation, via the threat of armed force, have only increased the resentment and hostility of the Spacenoids living in the colonies.

>The destruction of this agricultural block further turns public opinion in the Autonomous Republic of Zeon against the Federation. The Diet unanimously demands complete independence, and even in Zum City, Side 3's "Mother Banchi," subversive activity breaks out as mobs run amok. Degwin, the chairman who leads the Diet, is worried that the Federation Forces will intervene to suppress the riots.
>In effect, the military cadets at the Guardian Banchi have now become hostages, whose lives are in the hands of the Federation Forces stationed there. The gifted colony-born students at the military academy include many children of prominent colony families. And its location is next door to the Federation Forces garrison, with only a training area in between.

>The Earth Federation had recognized the self-governing status of Side 3, the Autonomous Republic of Munzo, but this did not mean they were truly off the leash.
Earth Federation Forces were deployed in the space colonies of each Side in the name of maintaining public order, and despite being granted autonomy, Munzo was no exception.


Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Amuro would have been a rebellious little Chad if the war hadn't fucked him up.

> Using Gundam: The Origin as proof of anything
> Degwin outright says in third movie that the Federation recognized Side 3 as the first autonomous Side after Deikun's rebellion
> Side 3 were autonomous enough that they could decide their political leadership with no oversight from the Federation (Degwin took power based entirely on Deikun's apparent wishes)
> Side 3 traded independently with the Jupiter Energy Fleet (Challia Bull led Side 3's fleet)
> Side 3 could build up military forces without the Federation stepping in and stopping it even though it couldn't really be used against anyone else, since the only other faction in the Earthsphere was Side 6
> But yeah, not independent and autonomy definitely just meant the Federation was breathing down their neck constantly to re-join the Federation
Amuro pretty much set his damage aside until the war was over, at which point he actually took some time to grieve. Char didn't put it aside until the war finished but never moved on from that point. It absolutely makes sense that he'd start to resent Amuro finally processing and moving on from his grief and finding a reason to live and be happy again. Combine that with the pressure of living up to his dad's legacy while being a middling Newtype at best and it's no surprise that Char ends up the way he does by CCA
>We're no longer under your boot! Also, trade with us, we're starving!
>So, you have chosen war...
Strong independent colony cluster that need no Federation apparently needed the Federation more than they thought.

Bubblegum Crisis. What did /m/ think about it and is it worth it to watch the TV series version of it despite the design changes?
10 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
I love Priss
I was just rewatching it today. One of the greatest cyberpunk shows of all time. Great show with likeable yet paper thin characters, great visuals, outstanding music (2-3 songs per episode sometimes), and a very basic story, but man, is it flashy sometimes. It's not without its problems but it was great for a late 80s anime. I think the most jarring scene was in episode 2: we beat the boomers, stopped the satellite strike, but we didn't get paid AGAIN and... cut to the CEMETERY WHERE LINNA'S DEAD FRIEND IS BURIED. Roll credits while cheerful music plays!

This series also has an example of them stealing from a creator and the creator stealing it back, much like Gavan and Juspion stole lightsabers and X-Wings, and then Lucas stole double bladed lightsabers back from them -- BGC steals Boomers from Terminator, then introduces Boomers that you can't shoot because they absorb the bullets and regenerate like the T-1000.

It's always introduced the eternal quandary: was Sylia a Boomer? Why would Dr. Stingray send an encrypted data file to her, and how would she learn all the tech data AUTOMATICALLY upon viewing it? And then they introduce Cynthia (SYNTHia?) who is a Boomer child, so we know it's possible, Dr. Stingray's tech was decades ahead of Genom's own.

First few episode seem like it's mostly a series of action sequences with very little plot.

Anons, Daley is a gay, and he's awesome.

I like Katejina's character design a lot in her civilian attire or military gear. Would protecc, court and date if she weren't such a batshit crazy person later on.

I also really wish we got more of her ftransition into beleiving in Zanscare, and spending time with Chronicle to flesh out their very underdeveloped relationship. It seemed like they were intending to pair off at some point, and I think in the ending she said she liked him and Usso but it's been a while.
Victory is my favorite UC series and I really wish Sunrise would revisit the Zanscare war again, even if it's just with some OVA. I'm kinda hopeful, since there seems to be some kind of freeze of late UC material until Hathaway and Unicorn 2 are done.

Do you think we'll get at least some sort of "Victory Define" manga that retells the story in a more compelling way and delves a bit more into stuff like >>19141709?

Just finished Go, what a fucking wild ending. Already read Shin, so I've been going through the manga in "chronological" order, not production order.
My question for people more knowledgeable about the series is, does it matter if I read Hien: Earth Suicide, before Arc? From what I understand, Arc was cancelled on top of getting an anime release next year, so I'd rather read the more "complete" one first.

You will have something else to look forward to, that's just as a cool but in a different way.

But yeah, I really liked the times in the original manga where the lines went all blurry, it looked cool as fuck
He had three major phases imo. There was his 70s Getter/G era style. From the 80s to early 90s he developed an evolution of that style, as seen in Majuu Sense and Getter Go. Then he developed a radically different style in the late 90s, as seen in Shin Getter, which he used until his passing. I like all three styles, but I think his 80s style, which was adapted for Getter Armageddon, was his best.

Did the original director intended Nina to be Gato's old flame? Her original 'muh gundum' personality was pretty cute.

Goddamnit, Anon, it's so obvious. Don't feed the troll.
No. But I'm convinced he set her up to fall for Gato regardless.

What /m/ stories actually have interesting science fiction or speculation as a main focus?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.

None. Almost no audiovisual media of any stripe has science fiction or speculation as the main focus. That's more the territory of novels, and maybe some comics, which don't have to worry so much about actors, among other issues. It'll basically always be at best a secondary focus in anime, TV shows, films etc.

I decided to rewatch everything before starting with Beyond and I am enjoying the first season a lot this second time around.
I find this attitude surprising. Personally, the first seven or so episodes were a high point, and I felt the quality lowered a little later on (though I liked the whole thing).
Huh, that's a novelty. I can appreciate the earlier episodes a lot now, but it wasn't until about the halfway point with Tsubaki/Canon/Michio coming in, and Kazuki and Soushi's backstory that I really started getting invested, and then it just escalates from there with the whole back half jammed full of iconic Fafner scenes.
I felt that the earlier episodes had a feel of mystery and genuine despair. When Kazuki left with the skank, I thought that was a bit of a low point, but the stuff after that- the UN invasion, Canon, Maya's father, Operation Azure- was excellent. God, so much happened in the original.
Exodus was honestly a big disappointment for me. There were lots of good parts- the UN-centric stuff, Maya as Hester's prisoner especially- but all the stuff with the alien Mir went nowhere, and there was so much complete nonsense (X-men powers, Canon just dies, Soushi turns into a baby even though they'd already done a missing Soushi arc)...
And now I'm remembering Maya's sister's boyfriend's father, the lava Festum, when they had to protect the assimilated Kouyou...

And, conversely, how they made Rina straight in Exodus.

AI sent me his correction pass on the story script and the library, I looked over it and sent it back to him. He's currently implementing the fixes we agreed on.
I just finished fixing the battle dialogue for all Layzner characters. Series left to cover are Dragonar, Trider, Raijin-Oh, the J9s and OG. Once I do those I guess we're finished, unless AI wants to do a pass on the battle lines too or something.
