Welcome to /m/SV Season 3!
/m/SV, alternatively /m/S Paint Variations, is a collaborative fanfic funposting thread originally popularized by OC shitposting in November 2019. As such this thread is about FUN – draw your original Gundam characters or mecha, draw other people's original creations, discuss or develop existing characters, and write or draw scenarios and stories of people's submissions interacting with each other.

Or just sit back and have a grand old time watching autism at its finest.

What kind of novel are you writing? Mecha?
>I haven't been contributing much, since I have a deadline for a novel writing contest soon.
cool, is this on wattpad or some other site or is it a more local thing?
I mean we literally have interdimensional shitpost OCs like various coldsteel'd Cosmic Era characters that simultaneously exist in both timelines so I don't see why not
I wish. If it was a sci-fi contest, I would have a great mecha story for them. But it's a historical novel contest. I am writing about Vlad Dracula. I have a lot of respect for that rather extreme, but strong leader.
>cool, is this on wattpad or some other site or is it a more local thing?
It's a local contest in my country.

I've only seen the first two episodes but the first ep felt very much like a super robot show with how the team was introduced (I don't care to argue about what defines super robot and real robot as genres because it doesn't lead to anything constructive).
I'm just glad we finally got Gundam last year
Its the proto wreckers, including a character that got snubbed and never showed up again, GigaNig the tank.

Whirl is kinda of a simp too

Riding Bean?
Did this get cancelled like Southern Cross? Or was it just a three season show?

Roadbuster and Whirl were from this anime. The legend goes it sort of failed so licensing out the molds was an easy way to get some cost back. There's a third one that had no head and was so Gobot like Hasbro never bothered, even though they had the rights to it. They got as far as a proposed name though. Landfire and then later Headcannon.

Oh also the deluxe Insecticons, the Dorvack guys, and Jetfire were all part of the same deal.

I beginning to think exaggerated Super Robot anime like Mazinger in the 70s somehow have more technical depth than a lot of modern "realistic" mecha animes these days.

I dunno, the choudenji bots are pretty grounded in what works
It was actually a bit funny watching that general in Voltes V actually realize that was an option. And they actually stick at it for a while. It wasn't just LET'S TRY IT ONCE AND NEVER AGAIN. A lot of plans also involved trying to neutralizes the Tenkuken. In general the basic formula of the genre seems to be either side trying todo whatever they can about each other's technology.
"""realism""" in general in mecha anime is nothing but nonsense and any kind of debate over "real" or "super" is typically based on a false dichotomy, but >>20254134 also has a bit to do with it IMO.

how popular and big was robotech back in the day?

i hear people talk about and reminisce growing up with Pokemon and sailor moon and dragon ball but i never hear people who grew up in the 80s ever talk about robotech
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I know plenty of people who watched it, but it wasn't a huge hit. It wasn't syndicated as widely as sailor moon or DBZ were, but it did run for a pretty long time. It also has a run on toonami in the 90s, where it found a new audience.

It certainly wasn't unknown, there were tons of toys.

It didn't run in either of the markets that I lived in during its first run (Western Colorado and St Louis, Mo metro). I vaguely remember seeing a few of the commercials for toys and definitely saw the toys on the shelves but me and my friends at the time didn't give a shit about them in favor of Transformers and Voltron. I found out more about Robotech in the most ass backwards way possible, my parents bought me the Palladium Robotech RPG thinking it was for Battletech, which I actually played. The novels were all in my local library for some bizarre reason and read them. I also managed to hunt down a bunch of the FHE tapes at local dive video rental places and watched most of it that way, holy crap did FHE do a butcher job on the show. I eventually found the DVD releases and watched the full run that way.

The early anime that was really formative for me was Battle of the Planets/G-Force, Voltron, Mighty Orbots, and the old Nickelodeon anime block from the early to mid 80s. Robotech just wasn't on my radar until my High School Years.
It was pretty popular on the East Coast, saw toys for it on vacation but could never afford them. It was on Scifi channel at some weird ass timeslot when I was a kid.

I still have the PS2 game battlecry. So much fun.

>he thinks coomer is a /v/ meme
How new?
is this good show yes? or no
It's easily the worst Tomino TV show. A remake movie would be an absolute blessing.
It's a flawed show, but memorable, and has some great things about it. One of the most touching romantic moments in a Tomino show happens towards the end, in the second to last episode I think.
I'd watch it again over Gundam 0079, just for how interesting it is.
Soundtrack makes me feel things.

If you own a game studio with practically unlimited funds, what kind of mecha game would you make?

I would take the whole Steel Battalion gimmick and expand upon it. I mean really expand upon it, instead of a control deck I would get a full cockpit going that would move and react to what happens in the game. A full engaging story with a fully customizable unit, multiple side missions that you can do as a group or with random mercs (online), hell maybe a whole team deathmatch with your unit in which any build is viable.

Semi-realistic spaceship freighter game, in a FTL + space-pirate setting

>landing on planet/moon require shuttle

As a captain you have to manage ship and crews
- make sure your fusion-thruster plume don't damage anything
- keep the fusion reactor active or switch to solar panel?
- fusion reactor cannot power both fusion-thruster/FTL
- deploy heat radiator individually to protect a side from the stars heat or micro-asteroids
- if you have crew doing EVA near a thruster you need to avoid accident
- which shuttle/space-pod is most efficient for a job?
- manage crew moral, run drills so they don't fail later when ordered to.

Seems like Build the last show with generally positive reception.
Why can't following shows recreate its success?
55 replies and 9 images omitted. Click here to view.
Ultraman's making those sales on half of the budget and episode count per year, though. For Ultraman, having a show every year now is progress, and the shows are largely each doing better in terms of sales than the ones before. Sentai is dying because it's making half of what it did a decade ago and each season is doing worse than the one before it.
The fact that Ultra has half the budget even ignoring the episode count is the biggest problem I have with it. We still get the toy spam Rider has and yet the constant kaiju reuse and reluctance to destroy the set is still a problem when you compare it to what it used to be. Yes it's doing better by modern Ultraman standards but it's also been eight years since Ginga and it still feels like a cheap imitation of what the franchise used to be.
Sentai is doing bad, definitely, but didn't Sentai lower its budget starting with Kiramager too? I remember those sales predictions being pretty close to the end result but I might be wrong there.
I thought it was alright but felt routine and tuned out early on.
Most new Kamen Riders have lost their humanity to some extent to gain their powers for the sake of protecting people. Gaim loses the ability to eat food after overusing the driver. Ghost dies in the first episode. Those are just a couple examples. It's been a pretty consistent theme.
>we wouldn't get Gubila every other fucking season.
You don't understand anon, its respecting the past.

>didn't Sentai lower its budget starting with Kiramager too?
Some signs were there from before. IIRC the half-season compilation episode started in Ninninger and IIRC it was around that time that they started reusing monster suits more frequently.

I've just finished watching this show and absolutely loved it. Please tell me the other Brave shows are as good as this one. As an aside note, which version of FINAL I should watch? Regular or Grand Glorious Gathering?

Kiss Players' inspiration?
I love the style but not the substance.

Does the Monster-of-the-Week / Rinse & Repeat vibe let up in the second half?
T.here's a couple of small arcs and more overarching plot coming in, but the show's mostly the same.
Da Garn is the only Brave that has an ongoing plot for pretty much its entire duration. You'd be better off watching that. I personally don't care much for the discrepancy between GGG's MotW first half and plot-oriented second half either, almost always you get people who prefer one or the other and feel like only half the show's worth their time, and I'm no exception. Show should have ended with the Tokyo Battle
preordered. thanks for the heads up.

Is this movie set before or after the events of Grendizer?

Americans don't know the difference, give him a break.
Shin Jeeg is more an AU than a sequel since stuff happens that obviously didn't happen in the original show. In the original Hiroshi beats Himika, beats the villain than comes after her and is free to get together with Micchi after he's victorious. In Shin during the final battle with Himika Hiroshi ends up sealing everyone there but Micchi away for 50 years during which she marries someone else and has a grandaugher and then Hiroshi and Himika return and restart the conflict. The second arc from the original show never happens and that other villain never shows up.

Plus Hiroshi's dad is still alive (he's killed in the first episode and becomes a brain in the computer in the original) the Haniwa are aliens, there's a second Bronze Bell, and Takeru's entire story is not only different but in the original he dies in his intro ep while in Shin he lives for another 50 years. Hiroshi also has an upgrade to a second cyborg form in the original, while in Shin they seemed to have merged the two into one design.

So while the original show roughly happens to about the halfway point minus some changes like Takeru and Professor Shiba surviving in Shin it's not a direct sequel to it. In fact Shin being a direct sequel to the original is impossible because the Haniwa are completely defeated, and Hiroshi and Micchi aren't seperated for 50 years meaning there would be no need for a second Jeeg and Tsubaki wouldn't exist.
I haven't finished OG Jeeg yet but I read that Shin Jeeg happens 50 years after the original show
Like he explains there, it basically happens 50 years after an alternate ending to the show's first arc, not 50 years after the actual show that was made.
Huh, better call Ryoma, his missing pal is here.

Have you been sleeping on the damage and HP upgrades in the Felix?
Before I touched any of those upgrades my Violet was already at 54k and nowhere near maxed out. So, it should be fairly easy to get 260-280k on one team pre-Felix upgrades, and then boost up close to 400k with them.
Not sleeping on them, but they are pretty slow coming. I also forgot about that in that post.
Can Aoife and Whitney just fuck right off from my Bounty quests? I need two more Ada dupes and all of my Blues and Greens will be at 6*s and Ada just isn't dropping.
I should be using spare Esmeralda sequences for her talent level, right?
Yep. Her, Solveig, and a few other useful Ns and Rs should be saved, along with any personal favorites, and maybe you leave 10 of each N and R sequence and then you use all the rest to get Sequence Chips/Coins for your SSRs and rarer SRs.
