Hey /m/, how does a newfag get into mecha in fucking 2020? Could you recommend a crash course? Shows, movies, games, whatever. You all talk about mechas like you're car guys and I desire to understand.

It's a good way to know that he hasn't returned whenever I saw him archiveposting.
Or they added his VPN to a black list, like all the PIA ports.
Can I watch UC Gundam in in-universe chronological order, but with Origin after 0079, or should I stick strictly to release one? I'm fine witch changing styles and I would prefer chronological if there aren't any story/thematic reasons to go release. My memory's too bad to piece everything together if I go release with such a long series.

What was Tomino's purpose in giving ZZ Gundam a theme song called "It's not anime"? And why did he wait until the third series to do it?

>And why did he wait until the third series to do it?
Because he didn't expect the viewers to be stupid and think it actually was anime. It's the same reason why he waited until the end of 0079 to call Gihren literally Hitler.
Garzey is unironically good. In fact, the entire Byston Well saga is.

Why does pretty much every mecha anime have the exact same title format where it's a couple of catchy words like "Mobile Suit", "Heavy Metal", "Armored Trooper", "King of Braves", "Silver Will", and then the name of the titular mecha? There are a couple exceptions but the vast majority of them all follow this format, which is weird because you look at non-mecha anime and not a single one of them have this title format.

This isn't necessarily a Gundam question but I do notice it has been happening ever since "Mobile Suit Gundam" so maybe that's the origin of it?

But how can the plot be interesting if it's invincible? That kinda gives away the story.

Still to answer your question you should watch in release order. I think it would be jarring animation-wise to watch it in chronological order.

Many of you guys often say that 'The Origin' isn't canon and conflicts with stuff like 0079. So I was wondering if there's anything from earlier UC that's more in line with the original anime like any sort of specific manga.
12 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Origin is not a prequel though.
Honestly, if you're willing to make Thunderbolt a separate UC you might as well go ahead make every entry not written by Tomino an alternate UC. They always have very different aesthetics.
The entire cause of denying new canon to stay in old canon is some serious NIMBY bullshit

I see, that makes sense if so. Shame they didn't fix all the holdovers though, since as it is now all I can say is "it would've been nice to say that Gundam '79 had the 79 Gundam in it".

If it's already mentioned somewhere, they're unlikely to do it. Plus, they're unlikely to go back in to a blank space to set a new work, rather than setting it after the last events created. Especially when they've already began to tease post-movie epilogue events, like Graham piloting an Exia variant. If you make an interquel, then your ending is already set, and the audience already know some of your plot before you go in, making it harder to do what you want because you have set parameters to stay inside.

Enemies are attacking Tokyo or whatever. Time to sortie. QUICK! What's the /m/usic that plays when you scramble?

Super Robot = Boss Borot's cockpit. How many mecha have a toilet and a fridge?
"Realistic" = AI-assisted neural interface, cockpit stuff only for basic/emergency functions (if that makes any sense).

I'm also fond of remote-controlled mecha, they feel less like "vehicle with legs" and more "giant toy". Kinda like military drones, but with a portable command center to be physically close to the action.
I guess the kid with the helmet from Daitetsujin 17 is probably the best of both worlds.

Also, is there some sort of middle point between "one/two pilots" to "huge ship with full command bridge" for mecha pilots? I'd like to see some Das Boot-style crew interaction, but the closest thing I can think of is Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor.
I like remote-controlled mecha as well. The big quirk involving them is that the controller is rarely in direct danger unless they're right next to the robot during battle. I'm not too fond of the overused feedback cliche where the controller gets hurts as the robot does because of feedback energy.

Remote-controlled mecha are honestly a more practical form of interface than piloted. But the more realism you inject into it, the more limited its storytelling potential gets. At its logical extreme, you get someone sitting at a computer half a continent away. But one way to spice up the controller-robot tension is the aforementioned feedback cliche.

For remote-controlled mecha, the thing that makes the least sense is when the controller is being carried by the robot in battle. However, this also is the most exciting to me. Nothing's better than when the controller is standing in the robot's palm or on their shoulder.

Consequently, I think the concept of remote-controlled mecha does better the more fantastical you get. The manga Kamisama Dolls was about psychic kids controlling wooden "dolls", a modern interpretation of the human/giant-sized wooden automaton concept popular in jidaigeki fantasy manga. Battles in Kamisama Dolls required the controller to generally be close to their automaton, which was exciting.

One thing I find interesting about remote-controlled mecha as opposed to piloted mecha is that a story can show the robot and its controller doing separate things. For a generic example, the remote-controlled robot could be battling to buy time while the controller protagonist attempts to disarm a bomb. A mecha story that I thought did this technique particularly well was Yokoyama Mitsuteru's Mars. The conflicts between the pilots are face-to-face while they maneuver their remote controlled robots into an advantageous scenario. I can see how this sort of battle storytelling inspired Hirohiko Araki, who has cited Yokoyama as inspiration.
>Also, is there some sort of middle point between "one/two pilots" to "huge ship with full command bridge" for mecha pilots? I'd like to see some Das Boot-style crew interaction, but the closest thing I can think of is Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor.
I recall a few cases of mecha operated by 4-6 people, mostly styled after tank crews. The not-Destroid Monster from Kikaioh is the first that comes to mind.

I suppose you could also make an argument for the Vital Guarder from Ryvius, which had a main pilot, five or so support pilots, and an entire room full of programmers backing them up.

the brains is using your life force, if you over use it's power too much it leaves the pilot weak like pic did also they did talk about how the suit help gives power to the brain i think it's when Yu suits up after joining them for real.
>the brains is using your life force, if you over use it's power too much it leaves the pilot weak like pic
For some reason, I thought that was a special case; particularly due to the massive growth. Seemed like Brains usually had a healing effect. Sometimes pilots would even sleep in them.

wow, I really would've preferred the Crossbow now.
It's set up more like beam harmonica/peacock smasher attached to the body. Everything is lined up. The one with the crossbow is a different unit.

So they'll bring this to EXVS2 right?

Oh, it's a classic, I highly recommend it. It's an old school shounen so it pretty much pioneered a number of the cliches that those anime are known for, yet despite that the battles are consistently clever and inventive. There will be a surprising amount of instances where you'll think "Wow, I did not see that coming" even if you are familiar with shounen anime.

False. The Germans were in a strategic disadvantage against the frogs and Brits in term of number of troops, foods and raw materials. The US reinforcements didn't contribute much aside from a moral boost.
I'm related to that guy and I'd say we were justified
