Q. What character like Miku and Evangelion do you wish for future collaboration (with Shinkarion)?A. (Ayaneru) Sanrio Characters.A. (Sugita) Webdiver.
>>17287092>WebdiverWell it does have a train robo voiced by sugita...
>>17287092Well now they have a reason to give us Hello Kitty Shinkalion.
>>17287092I now understand why they would give us the Hello Kitty 500, but bringing in a full-on Webdiver? And no, it's technically impossible to make a Shinkalion based on a Webdiver! Its gimmicks have to be completely different!
Well Ayaneru did voiced a Sanrio character...
Does anybody know when this will end so Sailor Otaku can start subbing Exceedraft again?
>>17286907Not sure how I feel about the additional gold parts on Hayato's new Shinkalion.
>>17289009Shinkalion looks like it has some more life to it, especially since what was thought to be the end has been confirmed to just be the ending of an arc.Combined with the fact that the cast and mechs are getting new designs, I'm thinking we're getting at least another 20 some odd episodes. Maybe even more depending on how much they want to milk it. Hell, if they want to do another arc the same size as this one, it'll be at least another year.
>>17288806Well, shashot and main pilot are involved with SBR, also director.
It's a deconstruction of how mascots get forgotten far into the shows.
Best CG in a TV Anime at VFX-Japan.
>>17291472GAN GAN ZU DAN DAN! WE DID IT BOYS AND /m/EN
I suppose the next logical upgrade is N700A X Dr Yellow in a brotherly no-homo way.
>>17292268Or Ryuuji's bro getting a new advanced mode.
I love this show so god damn muchThanks again for introducing it to me
>>17293614New mech and new clothes?
>>17293984See OP for new mecha, it's an upgrade to the E5. New clothing in what I'm going to call Season 2.
>>17293614For some reason this feels vaguely lewd.
>>17294287You've been hanging around these threads too much.
>>17294287Shinkalion is made for lewding
>>17294366The final scene gave me diabetes.
>kid's name is Fasty McGofast>father's name is Fast Of The North Star
>>17294366The episode went from a potential tragedy to one of the most heartwarming episodes ever. I love this series.
Episode 62 "Farewell!! Shashot Forever..."Shashot lost all his data in the battle with Kairen. Looking at his partner who has completely changed now, Hayato is more depressed than ever. Meanwhile, Kairen has joined with Sougyouku and Torame and declares that he'll attack the surface. The Shinkalion drivers wait at each branch in preparation. However, concerned for Hayato and Shashot, Akita, Tsuranuki and Shinobu are in a kind of awkward state.-He's dead, Jim. Hayato getting to 100% compatibility to CHOU GRANCROSS Kairen wiped his data. There's a female voice going "No software installed!" instead of his normal voice that did both the "The game is starting!!" and the preview.Kairen is a coward and fled so I don't think he's done just yet. Also there's an E5 in the original Black Shinkalion hangar.
>>17295557>killing off the mascot characterFuck, I really need to catch up.
>>17295134it's uncanny how many scenes are a perfect kick-off point for a doujin
>>17295581that scene in episode 2 was absolutely a lead in for /ss/ but nobody's gonna make that are they
>>17295597Episode 2 is only known for this.
>>17295557By the time the E5 gets upgraded, Shashot will return. I hope...
>>17295639maybe they'll mirror Kamille's development from the end of Zeta to the end of ZZ"Like zoooooooooooooooom"
>>17295670Has there been a mascot robo more tragic than Shashot?
>>17295691Not even his own programmer hit him.
Shashot has same VA with Iza.
>>17295766Interesting Foreshadowing or coincidence?
>>17295766And the train mode voices who?
>>17289384My guess is that when the Kitoralsus went out to explore space, since it's Kairen and the others, they pulled their superiority act with some alien race then ran away like cowards after getting their asses kicked hard. The equivalent of giving the finger to a bunch of tough guys and then running home. Only this time, the tough guys have found their home and have come to make them pay, probably not realizing that the human race is a separate species.That's what I would do anyway.
is this a yaoi reference?
Is he referring to Hayato's power of train trivia?
>>17298030More of them!? Come on, at least one of them should be E4 Max! Azusa needs a Shinkalion anytime now!
>>17295523They're both named after train services.
>Shinkalion running another year.I guess that means Exceedraft's subs will never be complete. FUCK
>>17301512Embrace the trainrobot.
>>17301512At least there's B-Fighter to keep us going until then
>>17302804Would be funny if it was swapped with a random episode featuring Rescue Backdraft.
It's been way too long since Miku's transformation theme played.
>>17305746It's been too long since she even did anything.
>>17305952Not long enough in my opinion. Bitch serves no purpose in the show.
>>17306673I will agree that for a character they hype up so much she's used the least out of all the drivers.
>>17306673Well of course she serves no purpose, she never even gets the chance to do anything.

THE LIGHT IS BROKEN BUT I STILL WORK
>>17307950Have their birthdays ever been said?
Episode 63 " Gigantic Development!! Tokyo Station's Counter-Attack System"Finally, the Kitoralsus agents have begun their plan to invade the surface world. Akita Oga's group faces off against Sougyoku who was seen in Koriyama, and Ryuji Kiyosu's group against Torame who was seen in Aioi. Also, Hayato heads to the underground world where the Kitoralsus leader Doctor Iza waits. That's when Kairen arrives at Tokyo Station. The Shinkansen Ultra Institue Oomiya Branch's substitute head Futaba Mihara proposes the activation of Tokyo Station's central counter-attack system so that the drivers can fight at full power.-It's all broiling down to this. Last fight of this 'season' is looking to be E5 Mk.II vs Kairen from the listed synopsis for 64. Shashot is still dead, everyone's depressed and then Azusa makes the entire Omiya branch sing an old railway song to cheer up Hayato.
>>17313657The final battle!But, um, there is still that one thread hanging regarding that other enemy Shinkalion... Will that be another group of Kitoralsus, or will it be an entirely new enemy?
>>17313677Catalog calls it "New Rival Machine" so probably a new villain.
>>17315858Suzaku has an incredible sense of fashion.
Blobs visited the Shinkalion Cafe.
>>17314671Conspirational plot twist: it's humanoid robots infected with the remains of Kitoralsus' nanomachines (dark matter). The faker Miku gets mad at how useless she's being lately, discovers her true identity as a robot derived from some knockoff idol named Kumi (pun on kurumi, aka nightmare), gets infected (as if she wasn't sick enough, *cough*, bad programming, *cough*), her hair goes black, her eyes go red with black background and the H5 goes rogue, especially being some sort of fake E5 with less abilities. The new Bosses Of The Week consist of vehicular transforming robots (cars, trucks, planes, other kinds of Transformer knockoffs).Sentient technology created by humans turning against the humans themselves (in the character description, she's "a rival of Hayato").To fight back, everyone else is getting a Mark 2 as some sort of marketing stunt.True enemy becomes the faker Miku's creator ("mother"), a humanoid survivor Kitoralsus made like some sort of totally evil Seiryuu attempting to conquer the world, and the faker Miku's infiltration in the world of Shinkalions is just part of the plan.
you think his popularity has anything to do with that he's similar to everyone's favorite gay angel lad
And just a heads up, the most powerful Gigantic Monstrous Being descends on April 11th... Golf.
>>17320780>implying this isn't secretly Rebuild 4
>>17320780Every anime needs these kind of character
>>17323333I think it's this, a Sanyo themed Kodama
>>17323337Yeah this is what they turned the Type Eva (Set V2) into when the time for that ran out.
>>17323285Is this official art, or is it just an edit? If it is official, that will surely be Azusa's model. Still prefer the E4 Max, though.
>>17324367Just an edit.
>>17323285I actually like that color scheme.
>>17320807Why don't they have dedicated sports channels...
Time to kick ass and eat hot pot, and he's all out of hot pot.
Aight this shit's been going on for a while so is this show good and is it good enough to watch it all to catch up
>>17330315it's pretty funnice character interactions, cromulent robot vs monster of the week CG fights
Mindbroken pilot refuses to accept his copilot's death and carries his corpse around.
>>17330315No, it's boring and repetitious. The characters are are shallow anime tropes. Nothing is done well in this series, but what do you expect from a series that places a piece of product placement like Miku in it's cast.
Hitech tracks folded over thousand times for grorious nippon tlain.
Sougyoku looks ballin'.
>inb4 minna, everybody let's give hayato all our chikara and feelings aaah ending
>A railguide from the year he was born>2007>Wait a minute, that can't be right>That's way too recent, he'd only be like-oh. oh no.
>>17331126>Hayato has never known a world without image boards for train foamers
next game hopefully
>>17334194I wonder if we'll get Shinka Shinji interacting with regular Shinji, or Shinka Miku being forced to sing with the Macross gals.
He shall rise again
>>17334205>Watashi no Kare wa Untenshu
Episode 64 "Super Evolution!!" Shinkalion E5 Hayabusa Mk II"Excluding Hayato, Shinkalion drivers from all around the country gathered at Tokyo Station, and have begun battle with the Kitoralsus leader, Kairen. However, with the mysterious power Kairen has taken, his overwhelming power brushes off the attacks of the 9 Shinkalion. At that time, when Hayato is finally facing Iza in the underground world, he sees another Shinkalion E5 there. Its name is the Shinkalion E5 Hayabusa Mk II.-They made it to Iza. He says something about Shashot never being able to come back. Kairen has some kind of second form which he engages the 9 Shinkalions in. Kairen and Sogyoku BTFO. (Good riddance.) Tokyo Station's transformation is something right out of the Evangelion films.
>>17334758If Sougyoku is kill, then Kairen will only be stopped by the E5 MKII once Hayato is done with Iza. Hope that might be the case, for practicality, since we still haven't seen the MKII's Falcon Mode.
Is it finally wrapping up, guys? Or are they going to stop the plot and go live on a shitty island for 20 episodes?
61https://nyaa.si/view/1129185>>17335755There's toys coming out through August, lad. We've got another year ahead. This is just the end of the Kitoralzus story.
>post yfw the final episode has Might Gaine show up
RIP, Shashot. You were a true bro until the bitter end.Give Kairen hell, Hayato.
>>17336910>Everyone is here!"Oh god, who invited Zetsurin-Oh."
>>17286907Should I start this? Always sort of wanted to and was big into trains as a kid. How many more episodes is it going to air for?
>>17339817I don't know how much longer but definitely at least most of this year. Definitely give it a shot though, it's great fun.
>>17339823I will then. Thanks for the fast response.
Man all the Google dicksucking in this is kinda bothering me ngl
>>17340277It's real heavy in the earlier episodes.
I want Shinkansen models for Open TTD.
The rape train in fact has brakes.
Yo why the FUCK is Miku here
>>17341836They paid her a lot of $$$
>>17341836Because Miku likes to pilot robots.
>>17341586Japanese Train Set is on Bananas.
>>17341862I want to fill her anus with my creamy love
>>17342498Is this fucking Rollercoaster Tycoon
>>17341836To feed the fucking normies. She's a useless character here.
>>17342607Would be cool if they actually retconned that she's like a test of an AI controlled Shinkalion.
I'll believe that when I see it, slut.
>>17342498Wheres EVA and Yellow?
>>17343810Eva is just a 500 in special colors and Yellow isn't a revenue train.
Truly a deconstruction of the Evangelion genre.
>>17345325I wonder how would Gendo look like in a plugsuit.
JUST SIT ON MY FUCKING FACE YOU FUCKING TEASE
>>17347393when's the doujin where she also wants to learn how humans reproduce
>>17347393>recently I've felt like dying>this is a cry for help>I need to talk to someone
>>17342236They grow up so fast
>>17348950thank god he got over that rebellious phase
>>17351434When an advised combination Leon Channel created becomes canon in the anime... N700A x Doctor Yellow is nice, but I am still not sure how to replicate the Super Dragon Knuckle... Maybe we should wait for next episode.
>>17351434Mildly lewd expressions.
Episode 65: "New Semester - New Development!! The Mystery Shinkansen Festival"The battle with the Kitoralsus is over, and Akita, Tsuranuki and Shinobu have returned to their families to pursue their own dreams. Hayato sends his support to them, but of course he's lonely. At that time, Hayato receives consultation from Azusa. Because the Shinkalion haven't launched, Seiryu is bored. Seiryu is living at Azusa's house. When Hayato goes to visit him, for some reason Suzaku is also there...?-Fun little finale. Shashot's data was inside Black Shinkalion or something so he came back during the final battle. And somehow that gives them an idea on how to revive Genbu. Iza's chamber collapsed atop of him but I doubt he's dead for good. E5 MkII has a Dual Grand Cross.
I want to protect this smile.
>>17353199Also new evil boy in a new key visual. Also the golden Shinkalion in the catalog is without a doubt N700S.
Do you feel rike swapping?
>>17353230Let's trade partners
New ED next week.https://twitter.com/berrygoodman88/status/1111768408893251585
No full images yet but MkII can Over Cross Gattai with other Shinkalions.
>>17355340But does it have hips?
>>17355359With it how it comes together it might only have elbows.
>>17356898I kind of want to see an overcross with Black Shinkalion Kuranai.
>>17356980It might be the primary one after we see E5 MKII x E6 and E5 MKII x E7. Then we can have E5 MKII x Black Kurenai.
Daisuke Namikawa is Kirin.
>>17358572Character looking a lot like DIO Brando
>>17356980They show it off right here >>17358674
>>17353233Can I have both?
>>17358572ゴゴゴゴ MENACING ゴゴゴゴ
>tfw you're the next era of Japan
>>17360759I'm waiting for a Japanese Prince/King to marry an English Princess/Queen. Both are island nations, still have an ongoing monarchy that's fairly important, and have a long history with trains. Plus the event's merchandising alone would net a fortune.
>>17358572We're fighting gaijins now?
>>17361076You like watching amwf porn eh?
>>17353202Miku training Hayato in swerd when?
>>17359882I like this minor transformation that makes it looks closer to the panel-on-panel CG model look.
>>17358674>>17359882This toy is sick.
>>17362936Should've had -す scribbled in the corner
>>17361553The Japanese government just announced that the next era will be called the Reiwa Period once the current Emperor Akihito abdicates his throne to his son Naruhito on May 1st this year
>>17361562Currently only an Emperor can sit on Japan's Chrysanthemum throne, but in England a Queen can wear the crown and become the head of the monarchy. Additionally, any Japanese princess marrying outside of the royal family/clan (a small number of people because many renounced their royalty after the war) would have to give up their own royal status. An English Prince/King would technically only being marrying a "commoner," and one who had no chance to succeed Japan's throne.
>>17363489So, basically, I have no chance of ever marrying Princess Kako? Fuck this gay earth
Rolled 55 (1d100)Dice Roll determines how many remaining episodes Shinkalion has left
>>17364146That'd be another full season.
>>17364304Yep, season 1 being the Kitoralsus saga and season 2 being the Lightning Shinkalion saga.
I want to see them reunited as a family.
>>17367240Nanomachines, son. They will be back soon.
>>17367240I am puretty sure Disney will do it once they have fully acquired Takaratomy.
>>17361921And apparently you put it back for the Over Cross Gattai? Might be a mistake in the product shots.
https://youtu.be/xGGedvG6VW0A screenshot from the episode as well.
>>17371429Shinkalion got me to finally cave and buy some Miku merch. I'd feel bad but the glasses are cute, and I honestly think the slight differences in her Hayabusa's design make it look nicer than Hayato's.
>>17372183Am I the only one who thinks that Iza knows a lot more than he's telling them?The writers did a good job with him, you can't be sure if he's telling the whole truth or still hiding secrets.
E5 MKII overcoss Black Shinkalion Kurenai
Episode 66 "Great Explosion! Oomagari Grand Cross"Hayato reunites with the rest of the Omiya gang to fight a new enemy. Although it's been a month since they used the simulation, it doesn't seem to show any blanks in their high coordination. However, Akita feels that his driving is slightly out of place. On that occasion, a middle-aged man named Kurashiki Izumo is brought to the Ultra Evolution Institute. Izumo, the president of a very famous business, is the father of Futaba's fiancee, Kurashiki Yakumo.-I can't handle the throwbacks this week. We open with maintenance workers spotting a mysterious Shinkansen, and the visuals for the new ED call back to Go One Step Ahead. Kirin is mainly sitting in the darkness and making vague threats. Suzaku is now bumming with the Ueda family/Seiryu. Right into the Over Cross Gattai with Kurenai, looks sick.
>>17373652Upon defeat, Iron Steamer turned into Sky High Giga Booster. Looks like smug-ass Kirin is testing the group.Next week - Golf.
Episode 64 (S1 finale)https://nyaa.si/view/1132952
>>17374765>(S1 finale)Time to go through my 10 episode backlog...
>>17373657"You thought you were fighting Kirin... BUT IT WAS I, DIO!"
Shashot is alive!
Commander Izumi is GOAT. 'Don't give me death flags.'I wonder how many 'friends' Iza has that we don't know about. Looking forward to whatever the next step of his master plan is.Was Shashot really revived via nanomachines or was Iza somehow involved? I get the impression that Commander Izumi knows that there's more to Shashot's revival than 'nanomachines, son'
How can she be even more perfect?
>>17376676Her new hairstyle is an improvement over the first one.
>>17376888Weeb brought up the idea of the 4 original agents all becoming massive nerds for something upon their return now that Suzaku has show an interest in romance dramas.
>>17377031Then Seiryu has to be a railfan like Hayato! ...eventually.If they were alive, Genbu would at least be interested in construction and live with Tsuranuki, while Byakko would be interested in transportation in general and work in the Moji branch.
>>17377144But I'm not that weeb in >>17377031.
STEAM ROLLER DA! WRYYYYYY!Just imagine that in the final episode of season 2.
>>17378865Codename is Gigant Roller!
Find a flaw
>>17379132I don't like how they designed the ankles. The ankles are pretty loose and head is held on by gravity. The "effect parts" that serve as the stand don't stay on the feet. There's also the clearance issues in the arms and legs that made it into the production version.Pre-painting the kit was a good idea except for the fact that there are gates in some of the painted areas. They didn't include any color mixing guide so if you want to paint it, good luck matching the very specific colors JR uses.It was still a fun kit to build despite its problems. The E7 has fixed a few of those problems (loose joints, clearance issues). The kit itself also has a standard psuedo-inner frame to each production between variants for GSC which is also a great base for customs https://twitter.com/mekarinrin/status/1114579191586934786
>>17379178Can confirm the loose head, fixed mine by thickening the joint. Never had a problem with the ankles but the arms on mine are a bit wibbly.Mr. Hobby did sets of Shinkansen paints that came out the same day if I remember.
>>17379738They did, Mr. Color Railway Color (RWC)Annoyingly the green is in metallic while the other 2 are just gloss
>>17379758Fuck where can I buy these? My moderoid E5 is still sitting in the box, but this would motivate me to finish it.
>i'm 20 episodes behindhas anyone else apart from what they had in episode 43 gotten a robot yet? or are there new trains?
I want to cum inside haruka
>>17380022You don't deserve her.
>>17380016E3 turned silver, Tatsumi got N700A now that Ryuji has Doctor Yellow, Black Shinkalion turned red, and Hayato got Hayabusa MkII.
>>17380064I deserve to kiss and lick her naked body
>>17380095But can you survive angry mama?
>>17380088well shit, I need to catch up
>>17380157I'll fuck both at the same time
>>17379868Well there goes that.
Oh. He's that buddharobonigga from overwatch
So this is how the merging beams trope looks like from the outside.
>pickled rock>best before: forever
Miku twintail domination.
>>17381746It's not a Shinkalion. They ride it though.
>>17381728getting kinda full there
i'm still surprised nobody tried to lewd this thing
>>17383639There's barely even been an attempt to lewd Suzaku, it's really weird
>>17381728I really want Miku and Azusa to hang outMaybe Azusa dragging Miku and Haruka around, just give me somethingI swear they've only been in the same room once so far
>brand new Mk2 transformationSo this is the power of mom and dad's money?
Added a TV Size version of the new ED to the MEGA since I don't think they've said when it's coming out for real.
>>17376676They say seeing Haruka smile is good luck
Further episode names 67 - Continue!! Wheelset Drill and MkII68 - Mysterious Enemy!! Black Shinkalion Nanbas
Why did she want to have a talk with you, /m/?
>>17387772Black Shinkalion Numbers, because it is what it's meant to be read out.
>but how did>NANOMACHINESdammit shinkalion are you memeing on me
>>17391361Exactly. Whatever that is, we might have the second Black Shinkalion some anon asked for.However, as a catalog once mentioned, there will be yet another Shinkalion released alongside E5 Mk2 and Black Shinkalion Numbers. It has to be the E4 Max, in order to avoid having a third E3 mold (E3 Flare Wing and E3 Iron Wing is enough; thanks, Takara Tomy).
>The E5 series trains have been chosen for use on the planned 16.8-billion dollar Mumbai–Ahmedabad high-speed rail corridor in India, scheduled to open on 15 August 2022.
>>17390724Final boss fight theme for Sonic Forces would be fitting for Kairen's final battle.I hope It Has To Be This Way would be fitting for Black Shinkalion MK2 (or whatever it's called).
Black Shinkalion Oga. Is this another form of Kirin's Shinkalion or an upgrade for Seiryu? Can't tell.
Golfgom and image limit. Not a good day.
