No, he wanted Indian pussy and Amuro accidentally killed his curry wife.

>Yasuhiko: In the 1980s, Hideaki Anno and Katsuhiro Otomo started making animation, and Miyazaki anime became the national anime. Seeing that situation, I thought "there's no place for me," and retired from anime.

Why couldn't Tomino be humbled like this and instead made incredibly shitty anime through the 90s?
Even Anno eventually realized he is a hack.

Stop biting the bait. Just ignore it. Attention is what he wants.
hilariously shitty show people only like ironically
But V is better than your favorite anime
v was so bad it gave tomino depression
v was so good anno called it one of the best early 90's anime & tomino changed his mind about it admitting he was wrong. It also inspired Anno not to allow eva to be sponsored by a toy company..

could somebody give me a quick run-down?

Afterimages with mass.
I still don't understand what this means but it's a pretty cool gimmick
iirc isn't it like the F91 is going so fast and overheating that it literally makes metal particle afterimages as it moves or something?
Instead of using mobile suits to conquer a colony and potentially inflict a lot of collateral damage (as well as taking losses), the bugs explicitly target the humans, leaving the infrastructure comparatively intact for takeover.

The F91 sheds millimetric layers of its metal exoskeleton as it moves, and these confuse sensors and targeting since you not only see the image of the F91 left behind (like an octopus squirting ink), but because it's composed of metal particles they also have mass that can be picked up and targeted.

Imagine if instead of literally who Glemy being the final villain they put Char in to lead the rebellion against Haman like he was originally supposed to. Then it would kill two birds with one stone and we wouldn't need to have two mid animes, zz and cca, to finish early uc.
Nagano could have been the mechanical designer too but he got canned by fucking b*ndai. If this hadn't happened then we wouldn't have the ugly mfer that is the current zz gundam that they had to rush to get out at the last moment.
Fuck off tourist.
>Could have been a film
Instead it was a series, there was never a plan for it to be on the cinema.
actually no that would be stupid as fuck because important people aren't always doing important shit and sometimes there are other people who move history
actually no you are stupid as fuck because this isn't fucking slice of life, they aren't going to make a show about unimportant people or unimportant shit retard.
Does anybody have Tomino's original plans for ZZ?

Instead of weekly CCA sucks threads, lets have a weekly Re-Zeon thread.

Post designs, lore, and frustration that there is still no way to read this in the west.

I'm tempted to fund some Japanese language uni student to translate whatever we can find in terms of Re-Zeon chapters because I'm sick of waiting to read about how an army of Ple clones engage in naval warfare on Mars using Titans test suits in service of the Ple queen.

All of my favorite gundam designs are by nagano, but five sIop stories is worse than dogshit. Like what is this fucking shit dude? Too many fucking lines, it’s like he just sperged out all over paper. He needs aggressively ignorant Bandai execs to reign in and focus his autism towards making coherent designs with less lines and that can easily be made as toys. That is when nagano is at his best.

Looking at this shit makes me sad because I can still see flashes of greatness in it. Get fujita on this shit and it will make a fine toy. But I guess maybe what made nagano so great is what ultimately lead to his downfall.

Go back to Discord cuck YWNBAW
This is something nagano was actually right about. Transforming mobile suits are the reason half the titans suits look so bad. Notice how all the best zeta suits are non transformable? The-o, qubeley, hyaku shiki, mk-ii. Should have just not tried to copy macross and transformers and instead made something unique.
>Too many fucking lines
It's not animation, it's illustration, different medium with a completely different approach to the art.
You haven't developed a taste for that because all you know is simple blocky anime mecha like Gundam, Getter or Mazinger.
The problem is that he left gundam for this sI0p.

Nagano is one of those pretentious losers that thinks he is too good to follow social norms and as a result is left bitter and isolated while other people use these norms as a basis for social cohesion. You can see this in how he got fired by sunrise a million times for not following their basic instructions (which weren’t even that bad lol) and now has to cope by making irrelevant literally who manga by himself
This is what Discord does to your brain

Judau is the strongest Newtype just for being able to recognize Newtype connections as they form and to outright reject them. He's like Yazan, who rejected his own Newtype awakening completely and forcibly remained an Oldtype.
Judau was so based. I wish Tomino kept making shows with him as the protagonist like he wanted to.
Haman rejected Kamile.
kamille is an incel. haman was never attracted to him.
Amuro and Char used to be straight, newtype connections don't care.

Reminder the true theme of Gundam is "Freedom and Duty" according to the NHK doc. It is about Char being badass and getting his revenge. The Origin is the only time this was accurately portrayed to the original vision. If you disagree, you didn't understand Gundam.
>getting his revenge
He never got revenge on his mommy issues

You mean zocking

This movie had some really well animated scenes but it just feels like a waste because of how rushed everything is. Also the Gundam pilot is a cheap copy of Amuro Kamille and Judau.
>gets in the gundam to defend his colony from a random attack
>has a girlfriend who is with the baddies
>even has a little sister to protect
>ending scene is him guiding everyone in space like Amuro did
But hey the mech scenes were cool.

Thanks for proving me right.

The Rafflesia is a really unique MA design. It's weird in that it feels out of place here, yet at the same time it fits.

So, why is Thunderbolt considered an AU? I watched both movies before moving onto the 0079 films and didn’t notice anything contradictory.

Is there something that happens in the manga?

I just need some kind of justification for why the mobile suits get seperate pages on the wiki. It’s really annoying to have to switch between them.

there's a fundamental difference between these and subarms that are operated AT THE SAME TIME as regular arms, something that was simply not possible until more advanced AI support systems were developed circa Gryps.
If you dipshits don't even understand this much you have no business being here.
enough about sub arms. can i get a mobile suit some domme arms?
funny how nobody tries to defend the e-packs bit
Dude the original Gundam's learning computer was an AI. It talked to Amuro in one of the show drafts that got translated. So GTFO out of here if you think they don't have advanced enough AI for that shit.
