Could you blame the Japanese for doing their own thing? Could you even imagine trying to adapt something like this?
Imagine trying to animate fleets the size of galaxies.
It would be easier today with the embracing of cgi in anime. That said, LOGH got away with some large fleets done traditionally.

Wanted a thread for talking about Tominospeak but then realised it's also a good opportunity to talk about all the other stuff like the technical jargon, coined words and constructed languages, etc.
And of course crabsticks and DANGAR.

So it was a fighting game I'm guessing that had a location test but was never released to market properly. I see.

more of a game scanner, but maybe they'll do mecha or anime? They did a bunch of Sakura Wars material. the only question is this scanner came out of nowhere. Normally at least they have a twitter or a short bio like "Love anime i'm gonna scan soem of my collection. any rewquests guys? huh huh huh". Yet nothing. They're a mystery. I wonder if they're associated with retro gamer?


better question: what hasn't she scanned?

Searching for that brings up her weibo only. What was that?

Mmmmmm, Taimanin Asagi... delicious...

New scan but garbage quality.

What. I don't get how anyone could think ZiO's early episode with the dumb time erasure were the best part of the show.
I failed you guys.
I think this was just a stylistic choice. They're supposed to be in the world of a picture book.
>the worlds depicted in paper books look like the paper they are printed on
>the worlds depicted in video games look like the electronics they are rendered on
Ex-Aid didn't resort to this nonsense.
Because this isn't Ex-Aid. The whole picture book thing has been a frequent style choice in the show so far.

So basically just watch shit in this order, right? I don't give a fuck about individual opinions as I can make my own.
Yes, you are correct. Personally watched in release order for UC then watched in release order for AU.
In my opinion there are a couple points in the timeline can be better chronologically, mostly in regards to turn A and the OYW.

I don't think there is much of an issue watching the OYW OVA's after the original just to watch that era together instead of randomly coming back to it every few series. Watching all of UC before moving on to AU's could also work.

I also think Turn A works as a good finale, other than maybe G-reco, so watching the post Turn A AU's before Turn A can help give it the finality it feels like it was intended to have.
Got it, thanks. I've watched just about every show except for the UC stuff as I've always been a little put off by the sheer volume there is to watch and not particularly enjoying old animation.
Just do what I did and examine why certain shows are usually recommended before or after others and make your own list using some sense of logic. Went with 0079 > Zeta > ZZ > CCA > Origin > War in the pocket > Stardust memory > 08th ms team > Igloo > Thunderbolt > Unicorn > twilight axis red trace > narrative > f91 > Victory > G-Reco > G gundam > Wing > X > Turn A > Seed > 00 > AGE > IBO

But who gives a fuck if you watch say ZZ before Zeta or some shit. Or CCA before 0079. Do what you will on your own terms.

What is a good starting point for Macross?

inb4 just start with macross
19 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
I don't like any of the new macross entries. I only really liked the original, the movie and 7. I'm kinda annoyed none of them had the same charm as the original and how shit Plus was despite it being so fucking hyped.
>is production order always correct?
It's rarely incorrect is what I'd say so it's safe advice to give or to use as a guideline yourself, it'd have to be some weird adaptation thing like anon mentioned with Monogatari or something like Kamen Rider for it to be bad advice. Some things I'd say can definitely be experienced out of order perfectly fine even if they are perhaps best experienced in production order but I'm not going to advise that to someone unless I know about their individual tastes, and then there's also stuff like say Gundam where I'd say start at 0079 without any additional knowledge but could easily say start at something like Wing if I knew what they liked but wouldn't otherwise asvise that due to a lack of reason to rather than a reason not to.
>cause im never telling someone to watch kamen rider
I mean I think that's a fairly obvious exception due to the mostly unrelated nature of the many series. Black before Black RX is about the only thing I'd call a hard rule, and even with those two there's that episode that goes over all the previous Riders that should probably be skipped if you've not seen them, but there are also some others that one could perhaps say ideally should be watched before others.
>inb4 just start with macross
Nobody's going to validate your decision to start with Plus or Delta. Either start with SDF or don't bother asking.
SDF is not only the starting point, but it ends in such a way that you don't need to watch anything else if you don't want to. Plus is if you want more focus on plane action, 7 if you want Kawamori-isms to the extreme, Frontier if you want something that kinda starts as a nostalgia trip to the original before becoming its own thing.

Kamen Rider is designed such that you can start with any series because every series of it was some kid's first.

What does /m/ think about it as a stand-alone anime?
60 replies and 9 images omitted. Click here to view.
Fair enough.
Oh yeah I've been meaning to check out Reboot, is it any good?
Not really.
I like it.

My feelings on this show are a little mixed, but I had a good time with Planet With overall. I guess the mecha designs could be better, but the strangeness of them grew on me a little. There was definitely love put into this show, but it felt really rushed, like they crammed 18 episodes into 12. The speed of the story makes some of the characters feel a little underdeveloped though I think that they do the best with the little time that they spend on each significant character. Also, despite the speed and scope of the plot, I never felt that it got too confusing despite seeming kind of convoluted on paper. It's a neat little show I'm glad I finally got off of my backlog. I can recommend it if you like series that have strange elements mostly for the sheer sake of having strange elements and breakneck pacing.

Turns out barely anyone here even watched the show even discounting the shitposter that may have turned away people
Barely anyone watched when it was airing, so there is even less people now who know it. Viper's Creed sort of situation.
I think the shitposter got more people into the show than away from it. When you see such a powerful hateboner it makes you want to check the thing out.

This was actually my favorite show of its season. It definitely had its fair share of flaws; woulda preferred drawn mechs and it definitely needed more episodes to tell the story it wanted to tell, but I found it incredibly charming and full of originality, especially in its mech designs. I couldn't help but find myself thoroughly entertertained every week.

Also Ginko is top cute
