So what is everyone's problem of ZZ? It's always seen as the worst of the series. But outside of I guess lighthearted start it ended the show is kind of great and enjoyed it more than Zeta.

God, that art is terrifying

I like it overall but the first bunch of episodes really bother me, it'd be one thing if it was just the lighter tone compared to Zeta (not a high bar mind you) I wouldn't have minded, what really bothered me was the antagonists posing absolutely no threat for a decent chunk of it
Worst example of this would be Glemy, his relationship with Roux starts out as a complete gag and then they have the audacity to make it end on a bittersweet note between the two of them
>>
>>20253901
People mainly dump on it because of the tonal shift from Zeta and the, let's be honest, really bizarre first half. Space aztec ninjas? Spinning cockpit junk bots? The villain kidnaps the hero's little sister and puts her in charm school? The other antagonist is a clutzy rose-sniffing Haman fanboy?

It's a farce, and isolated by itself I love the levity of the farce for what it is. But it's so dicontinguous from what came before and spends a fair while not seeming to really have a point that, for a lot of people, it's like WHY DO YOU EXIST?
>>
>>20254129
I just never really cared much about the deaths of the characters. They kept throwing them at me but I never felt they did enough work to make me honestly have feelings for them. Four is the closest and even than not really.

Ple connected with Judau felt way more honest and loving. Made me actually care about her wishing just to be loved in a way that wasn't really just a love at first sight sort of way.

Plus felt the ending of ZZ is way more horrifying tragic overall than Zeta.

Bay isn't involved beyond producer now and the current films aren't canon to Bay's films anymore, so technically it's a new thing.

The yellow parts have "spots" on them (though they're demonic and gross-looking and might double as some other animal part as per the designer's philosophy), the vest has spots, he has fur, cheetah tears surrounding his eyes and the helmet covering the red face is fanged like a cheetah.

The ending is silly for a lot of reasons.


Stopping a war abruptly just because "war is bad" sometimes it's not really the best thing because it doesn't erase the reasons that triggered that war.


but just like Seed Destiny the narrative bends in favor of characters like the Hime who do just bullshit and she doesn't even know what's going on behind the scenes. That bothers me a lot.

The BGC RPG is free through Animeigo's website, they have the official .pdfs on their built-in wiki. Since they're the licensor it's apparently legit.

>>20254524
>>20254526

What I can't forgive is them gutting the weapons diversity from 2020 in favor of trashy generic build-a-guns for the zoomer ADHD crowd. Also, the firearm damage tables are all fucky. Should've been a damage dice higher overall.

They forgot the one big rule of Cyberpunk, the one they themselves made: It's gotta have style. And you can't have style with GENERIC_SMG_WITH_NEW_NAME, you need an Arasaka PMS, H&K MP-2013, Ingram MAC-14, and so forth. The distinctive crunch differences between them had a whole hell of a lot of style, and the new stuff is just generic plastic. It's sad.

Yeah, I can't stand the generic-ization of all the gear. I like extensive weapon customization, but it shouldn't be the only the thing differentiating one pistol from another.
That, and there should be loads of cool exotic shit.

Hell, the original had all those things. You had to buy the Blackhand's sourcebook, but it was all there and in much more crunchy detail. Good stuff.

Original ending probably had them accepting fate and stop being villains (just like Enil El and Caris, since the show is about not repeating the past mistakes and moving on) but since the 2nd half of the show was cut short, we will never know

The sequel manga had them being bad guys again though

It wasn't cancelled, Shioyama wanted to do animation direction for every episode but knew a whole 50 episodes would be too straining, so they decided to halve the episode number and only use the first half of the planned story. I'm not sure when this happened, but I'm pretty sure it was either in pre-production or at the beginning of full production.
I didn't think it was that anticlimactic when I watched it but you can clearly see that a second half could have easily followed. I'm glad that Shioyama had his way though, the animation was great and consistently so, particularly for a TV show of the time.

The GX bits only hurt Jamil because his newtype abilities had broke and become largely unusable due to trauma from the end of the last space war. He was forcing himself to use his newtype ability and his newtype power was being boosted by the spirit of his dead newtype onee-san crush at the same time.

Thinking about it, have we seen underwater funnels/bits?
It's another medium psycommu would bypass completely.


>>20252960
In our context it is inconsequential. It change nothing to the question of defining what is a "funnel/bits" & who use that kind of weapon first.
If someone asked you who invented the first submarine, you aren't asked to subclassify them.

>>20253381
They are expandable, but it doesn't mean you wouldn't want to keep them if possible. The Elmeth would occasionally retrieve them, most of the wired one (especially the appendage kind) would naturally be retrieved if possible.
Granted, usually the MC destroy all the funnel before kicking the villain ass.

In unicorn you have a scene of the Kshatriya retrieving its funnels.
