>to the left
The hero - a perfect superman born through artificial means - breaking his pacifist rule in order to remove a threat inconvincible by design. A threat in the form of the complete opposite of the hero: a wretched, decaying creation taking vengeance upon the world for giving the two of them birth; the hero and his foe being the epitome of humanity's selfish desire. The hero's expression "soredemo" conveying not naïve idealism but his refusal to accept his enemy's worldview set in stone on an existential level.

Zeta's main problem starts around the time Mour died, then not much really happens outside of Axis and Reccoa's defection, which could have been pushed to the end of the show. Things start ramping up around Four's return, but the Rosamia plot later on fucks with the pacing of the final arc.
The highlight of Zeta for me was when AEUG landed in Hong Kong. Amuro, Beltorchika, Four, Frau, Mirai and Katz were great and Char and Kamille had some really nice character moments and development. The anime started slowly and slowly going downhill after they left to space and the climax was just a slog. My nigga Jerid got killed like a bitch and Rosamia was a dumb addition.
I still liked it but it was way too long for it's own good. Maybe I should watch the movies?
Honestly, the only major improvement was cutting the Rosamia arc and having the final fight be one long continuous slog for the colony laser instead of having the Argama stop Axis from crashing on the moon, then go back to the Colony Laser.

Even though BD sales are on the decline in recent years due to price increases and more shows competing with one another leading to less sales, disc sales still remain the best way to determine a show's performance in japan, especially for a show like Egao no Daika that got the bare minimum of merchandise to support it.

Maybe the new SOC will finally get Toei Getter Robo Go into a game. Honestly kind of weird that they've never used it, even if it isn't popular with Getter fans.

Xenogears would make SRW plot very interesting. Fei is voiced by Midorikawa too so we get that bonus as well.
it got into the mobage but it's doubtful that it would show up outside it.
I guess I just feel like Go deserves to be treated better, even if it isn't a particularly great show. There's nothing really wrong with the series aside from Getter Gai being arguably the worst Getter design in the franchise.
To be fair, I can't remember the last time I head someone bring up Daltanious on this board, so I don't blame him for forgetting.

Ryu no Michi is my personal favorite.

I absolutely love his Ichigo Kamen Rider manga as well and it was what made me fall in love with his work.
Much like his peers I can only see him as a profoundly sad man. I like his work, but man it is depressing on a whole different level than your normal tear jerker.

a lot of his stories ends with really downer endings, LMAO

It's Buster Dress, isn't it? If you are asking about Buster Dress, then the translation team said that they lacked a dedicated translator for the series and so they put it in hiastus.

Its really kino, a whole army of mercs are dropped on a jungle planet infested with rogue AI controlled mechs, all of the mercs get merc'd by their own robots except the protag and his, who seem to be immune to what's going on, so the two set out to continue their mission.
highly recommend it, fun stuff.

Was it actually possible for him to grab them?
Why didn't he just rotate his wrist and use the beam shields?
How come they shit all over the Destiny (the titular mech) whenever possible?

>If I am recalling right I believe sabers could not clash in the Cosmic Era and would just phase through the beam if they attempted to collide.

>Why didn't he just rotate his wrist and use the beam shields?

If he did he'd still have still been in range of the leg blades and would have still lost.
No. Shinn was retarded enough to try and grab fucking BEAM sabers, after thinking he could be Kira and grab swords (Kira grabbed the ASS on its solid blade portion, supposedly also forked his forearm shields so that it activated between the beam and solid edge).

Shinn was too hot-headed and forgot he had shields he could have used.

Destiny itself was never really on the same level as SF or IJ, even in early materials, and what crippled it further was its pilot was extremely hot-headed. Later materials just further crippled the Destiny, mentioning it was intended to be operating in a team of 5-6, with 4 other Destiny units and the Legion to back them up.
If he had used both shields, they would have covered the entire body. Its been said 2 shields being used at once can cover the entire front body. Strike Freedom also demonstrates this when Legend uses its dragoons against it the very first time.
Even then, after blocking the handheld sabers, surely he could have just gotten some distance between them.

What kind of sniper is superior? A beam or a bullet?
17 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Dainslef and KPE rounds.
Depends on circumstance.
I mean, if you want to really autistically break down the purpose of a sniper, it's to set up shop in bumfuck nowhere and make a decisive shot on one or more high value targets, and for that you don't force your favorite weapon into the mission but rather choose the weapon according to what exactly you're planning to punch a hole through.

The GM Sniper series ends up putzing around with both a long range beam and kinetic rifle, and they each have their pros and cons. The beam sniper has a whole lot of extra kit associated with it due to power demands, the rifle bizarrely choosing to upscale a bolt action pattern to giant robot size.

>using a solid rifle like on the Sniper II makes sure your shot doesn't just fizzle out if the range is too long
In a vacuum, maybe, but the moment you shoot that thing in atmo you're subjecting the bullet to atmospheric resistance, which will degrade projectile velocity and negatively impact kinetic energy all the way up to point of impact.

There's eventually a distance at which you'll end up just plinking the target rather than doing any lasting damage.

>the moment you shoot that thing in atmo you're subjecting the bullet to atmospheric resistance
it's funny you mention that, cause both ground custom versions of the Sniper II that we know of (Delta team and White Dingo team) are assigned with beam rifles, in addition to the Titans refit
the standard config with the shell rifle is probably meant for space combat though, and theoretically some kind of missile interception (after all, why else would a sniper need to have high mobility)
cruise missile
>(after all, why else would a sniper need to have high mobility)

To bug the fuck out after taking your mission critical shot. Snipers are for interdicting high value targets, setting up shop for one crucial shot and then vanishing before the enemy can figure out what the hell just happened to them. I mean, in real life an adequate response to realizing a sniper is in your area is to light up wherever you suspect they fired from with some kind of artillery strike, for the record. Now imagine what that looks like when you scale things up to giant robot foot soldier levels.

Missile interception would be a poor role for the bolt action ballistic rifle, the rate of fire for such a weapon is inadequate for the hit probability maximization needed for reliable interception. Like legitimately you want to roll dice on one out of a burst of rounds hitting the target rather than trying to make one singular accurate shot that has to all or nothing hit something as relatively small and agile as a missile.
