This was a good show. How shit is 2? Talk about Tekkaman here.
>>18454519>How shit is 2Very.Forget it even exists,
Is the original Tekkaman any good?
>>18455747It's one of those series that you show "old series back in my time were much better! They don't make them like they used to"-fags to shut them up.
>>18455747Not as good as Blade, but yes.>>18455753Fuck you.
>>18454519>How shit is 2?I thought it was okay but it was more of a failed pilot than an actual follow up
>>18454519I'm gonna be divisive and say that it's just mildly ok but it's incomplete and it's highly irritating for that alone. The designs of the new Tekkamen as well aren't as good as the previous ones either, bar Tekkaman Dead I, so there's that as well. I liked David's story to say the least.>>18455747It's ok. Not as good as Blade but it does its job. it's certainly the abolute weakest amongst the Tatsunoko Heroes era of Gatchaman, Cashaan and Polymar.
>>18455801>That actingIt sounds like a goddamn parody. I take it the trashtalking was the dubbers choice.Tekkaman's voice sounds familiar somehow, did he work on anything else?
>>18456528The title Teknoman sounds like a gay rave
>>18455801He has more vocal range than the entirety funimation's VA staff.
>>18454519Didn’t one of the SRW games turn 2 into something that happens in the middle of Blade rather than after it?
>>18455801This is art.
>>18455801It's like if Johnny Yong Bosch and Homer SImpson became a single person.
>>18454519Better than Gundam
>>18455747I liked it better than the first half of Blade, because the first half of Blade is boring as dirt. If I hadn't been watching them at the same time I would've dropped Blade after ten episodes or so. It's just so fucking dull.70s Tekkaman also starts off kind of dull, but at least some cool stuff is happening and there's Andro. Then by the end awesome shit is happening every week. It sucks that it never got finished, there was a lot of potential in what they were setting up at the end.
>>18459984I think so. The plot proceeds up to Miyuki self-destructing, then there is a time skip, and the characters from Tekkaman Blade 2 are introduced afterwards.
>>18455747Is blade a sequel to it?
>>18461498More of a re-imagining.
>>18461638THE NAME'S ANDREI ULMEYDAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ1QT2d8x_E
>>18460974Tekkaman Blade is really just brilliant storyboarding and character development marred only by bad animation and reused footage.
>>18454519The real story happens in the novel.Without the novel part everything is shit.
>>18464324Where can I find the novel? I tried googling it. Got nothin'. Except maybe stuff for II.
>>18464345It covers the final battle (4th Radam War).
>>18464324>The real story happens in the novel.Damn it, Japan
>>18464378Jesus, for a white girl, her nails and hair are really long.
What does Takaya-niisan have that I don't?
anyone here has purchased any of the resin kits ? im tempted but i have no clue on the quality or if its worth the hassle to paint , because i dont want a damn statue ( plus i already have the figmas and one soul of chogokin soltekka)
>>18454519Why does Aki cut her hair short at the end?
Did any of you guys watch / read Infini-T Force?Did VIZ drop the license or something? We went all last year without a new volume.
>>18454519https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jQ0xnq5nRwI like the opening
What is this expression trying to convey?
>>18475528i tried to watch it , it was extremely painful and boring , plus the bishi-fujoshi bait redisings and plot were awful.
>>18480176"I´m the universe´s punching bag"and it shows
What would a Tekkaman series in the 80's or 2000's decade be like?
>>18484811Depends on how the trends would influence the story and characters.If it came out in the 80s, it'd be like Detonator Orgun, except maybe with a higher animation budget and a stronger supporting cast.In the 00s? Probably more like Fafner or Rahxephon. Although I can't guarantee.
>>18455801MAYBE THE SPACE LANCE
>>18485888Space Lance of Trips
>>18471303No thanks.$20 is $20.
>>18475528I read the first 4 volumes of the manga and loved it. It's a shame the anime went in a completely different direction with the main character tho...And that there's been no new releases since volume 4.Fuck Udon.
Good aesthetic and overall plot but terrible direction, pacing and animation.Ovas and sequels are all better.2 being bad is a meme gone out of control.
>>18455801You can literally jump to any random point in the video and withing 2 seconds he'll say "space lance".
>>18463970Blade is one of the most perfect mecha designs ever made. Everything about it works so well.
>>18469440>i dont want a damn statueThen you should just buy the Sentinel TB toy coming soon, shown here >>18463970
Tekkaman Dead felt like some villain of the week for an episodic TV series, elevated to the main villain role for no discernible reason.
>>18492659there are some resin garage kits that are articulated too
>>18494940There are a ton of Tekkaman Blade animation cels up on Ebay right now. What's that all about?
>>18492693And he still lived in the end.
>>18454519Tekkaman Blade 2 is almost hilariously bad. I enjoyed my time with it for all the wrong reasons. If you are a fan of the original you might derive some fun from it.
>>1848583980s? bitch how much 80s you need this to be , it came right in 1992 , all its missing is poofy hairstyles but its 80s as fuck animation wise , just look at the shades ( when they put the budget for good animation , not those lo quality filler episodes or reused animation )
>>18496143someone must be panick selling due to corona
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoE8rKaHM-oApparently Reason was a totally different song at first?
>>18507974Not sure how to feel about this variant.
>>18507974feel me in your bone sounds waaaay too bad , thank god they reworked the song a little bit ... but still inferior to our one true saviour -eien no kodoku-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3l6UrTqR55E
>>18511076WOO MY DESTINY
I really liked the ending and idk if that would be a good idea to watch the sequel, could that possibly ruin it for me ?
I know it's translated as "I won't let you kill them..." but was this actually the romanized Japanese:"Anata-tachi koko sasawa shinai wa... "
30 minutes to WHOM, Aki?
>>18507974I kind of like the intro, but "Feel Me In Your Bone" is an unfortunate case of Engrish and doesn't have the same punch as "OHH LET ME SEE THE WAY"
>>18512843id try to read first on the missing link info , i mean the full planned script with all the crazy shit , then watch the trailer/ovaand then you can jump to TBII , and then if you can find the books and share them...
>>18513805https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSrIXP0AxaQ&t=56sMiyuki's last moments hits me everytime I see it.
>>18507974>>18511076The second OP was greatly improved in anime as well.>https://www.xiami.com/song/JAXVbM1f70a
>>18518699Been doing a re-watch. Pegas is a lowkey cheeky fellow.
>>18518773I remember him humming and singing a few times in the series
>>18480349Considering Morikawa's personality, that debut must have broken him in half at the time.>>18490172Absolute truth.>>18500071>Tek-ObarimanThat's one remake I'd watch.>>18511076>WOO MY DESTINYThat just hyped me to no end despite the impending tragedy and gloom of the lyrics. Okui has a way with her voice.>>18518699 (checked)He was the best buddy a space knight could have
>>18459984Yeah, it was SRW W. It has a big time jump for all the series (Gaogaigar uses it to move to FINAL) and Tekkaman Blade mixes the series gap after Miyuki/Rapier's "death" with the gap between TB1 and TB2. It brings in the TB2 cast before Blastor Blade ever exists.And if you follow a certain path ( as always) Miyuki is saved by all the brainy scientists from all the series.The entire game also has brilliant plotting on their part... Making the Evoluders rivals to Radam, allowing the Detonator Orgun and Tekkaman Blade plots to mix.Probably my favorite SRW game, just for the fact I had seen pretty much all the series in the game, so even without translations, I got the gist of most of it.
>>18520818What a roster.
>>18520818>>18520850Oh yeah, and they also saved this /m/an - Gai Daigoji!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7k1sKSENS6c
>>18520881>>18520818>Probably my favorite SRW gameMy /m/an!
>>18520762Pegas the absolute soldier
>>18520881>>18520892I'm now imagining Gai as a Tekkaman
>>18471922She probably felt like it or thought D-Boy would like the shorter hair more
Tekkaman Blade 2 is okay if you just want more Tekkaman.But if you care about plot holes, inconsistencies and forgetting important parts/characters, it's a little bit lacking.
Anyone know the lyrics to "Danny Boy"?
>>18529090And I didn't know it was real song until now. Thanks.
I really liked the Sol Tekkaman suits from TB2. Shame there is almost no official line art of them... Except one small pixelated picture...
>>18513831D-Boy's Dangerous Dick
the new book has 2 pages of twin blood arwork
If I've never watched Tekkaman, do I just jump in with Blade?
>>18533942yeah , but try to push in a little , at the first part theres some serious quality and slow burn plot , but when it gets going it goes places , and the money that got saved by those quality moments pays up in the latter part with OVA tier animation
>>18534064Quality doesn't scare me, plus I saw the big scene with Rapier when I was way younger so I know how it gets. Just wanted to be sure it's a good starting point
>>18534069then go on my son , share your thoughts on it later
This is Tekkaman Rapier/Aiba Miyuki. Say something about her.
>>18535677She would have washed all of the Radam Tekkaman if Evil's Psi-Voltekka didn't allow him to absorb a Voltekka, and even with that, he still got injured.
>>18535677she made spidercrabs a reasonable threat by lettin herself get ripped by one
>>18533942That's how I did it.
>>18533942Almost nobody cares about original Tekkaman. Blade is the one Tatsunoko remake the exceeded the original.
>unironically named Tekkaman EVILGee, I wonder if he's a villain or something.
>>18520762>>18518699Oh danny boy~The pipes, the pipes are calling~
>>18540528And when they made sequels to it, they didn't go all the way.
>>18471922>Why does Aki cut her hair short at the end?It's basically a mom cut. Because she's reduced to D-Boy's caretaker at that point, not his partner.
>>18541051>>18526099>And then she fucks him in Missing Link
>>18464378>(4th radam war) Soo... if I understand tbis correctly Tekkaman I was about first war, Tekkaman II is about the second, right?
>>18502961No, its not. You are a fucking moron.
How would you guys feel if Blade II brought D-Boy's family back as enemies again or allies?
>>18547302I don't see how that could work. They were all definitely dead. Maybe, *maybe* D-Boy's father could show up, because we never explicitly see him die, but even then it's almost certain he's dead.
>>18547315I was sort of trying to say it as a revived from the dead scenario
>>18547323Huh, interesting. Like maybe the Radam assimilated the genetic makeup of the people they turn into Tekkamen, and could subsequently clone them later? That could definitely mess with D-Boy's mind if the Radam were feeling really villainous down the road.
>>18545310Damn it, Aki.
>>18550725Aki best girl.
>>185465253rd1st is the tekkaman blade war 2nd is the missing link events 3rd is the one in tekkaman blade II with the aylamao tekkamen that were weaker than human based tekkamen4th ???????5th PROFIT
>>18455747It's pretty bad. Try a few episodes if you want but it's nothing like Blade. It's pretty much bunk standard 70s toy show trash
>>18540642Add in a D and we would've gotten Tekkaman Devil.
Finished watching this yesterday. Kind of messy overall with some awkward pacing and some really bizarre filler (the fuck were they thinking with the robot daughter episode?) but I really liked it overall, and the ending is great. D-boy being a walking mindfucked husk only driven by his hate for the Radam is some really hardcore shit
How does Tekkaman Blade look as a live-action suit to you?
>>18485839I miss this era so much.
>>18561538It doesn't really work. Blade is an amazing design on its own, don't get me wrong, but it also has weird proportions that don't translate well to something a real human can wear without losing a lot of what makes Blade really stand out.
>>18533436Damn, everybody looks so droopy. Did they get any sleep the night before?
>>18533436Aki has that desert game going for her.
>>18564756D-Boy only thinks about wanting to crush Radam, Aki can't stop thinking about the dangerous boy, and Shinya's inferiority complex makes him only think about his NIISAN on a daily basis.
>>18552200>4th ???????Intergalactic Radam victims united vs Radam, radam worshippers and zombie tekkamen.The scale of the war is huge, but not being well described due to the focus is always on the Space Knights and the jelly-girl tekkaman.
>>18564747Are there any good torrents of Blade II?
I haven't seen this series yet, though I plan on fixing that very soon. Question though, does Hollow Wings play at any point in the series? I'm always up for some based Shinichi Ishihara.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zI6cSxddXfA
>>18568049It's beena while since I watched TB, but I don't think that song played in the series itself, it's just a bonus song on the OST.
>>18552200>Sol TekkamenI want an Order of Balzac too!
>>18568049>>18568067Speaking of Insert/Character songs, I was clicking around on related songs on Youtube and came across the TBII character songs, the show itself wasn't as good as TB but this is groovy:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAZ2pkxV-RY
>>18563362Hey it worked
>>18568072Balzac became one of my favorite characters by the end of the series.
>>18568164I went from loathing him to shedding manly tears for him when he went out.
>>18469440>>18561538with the proper directing it looks awesome , maybe if they redid the suit with current materials it could be lighter and thinner.if i ever win the lottery i will make a suit like this ( or a soltekka if i manage to get someone else to do a group cosplay) I´ve seen ( but lost with my last hardrive crash) some italian cosplayers that did some tekkaman , both blade and aki from TBII using foam mostly , it looked okay-ish , but really you need to go worbla/fiberglass for the hard shells or it just come out looking wrong...
>>18566831someone finally translated the light novesl that come after TBII?
>>18568168same here , plus the whole mankind ingenuity against unsurmontable odds because he was basically using what amounts to cardboard armor that only holds on against grunt soldiers / spidercrabs and the weapon only fucked on a molecular level with the enemy , even if his shell is weakened he still has the extra speed , beam & melee weaponry ... so yeah manly tears >>18568049is there a translation for the lirycs ? because what little jap i manage to understand it seems like its cool
>>18454519Tekkaman Blade had an amazing voice cast.
>>18568418Well, there is the whole thing about Morikawa breaking recording mics on two separate occasions because he shouted THAT loudly.
I'd love for them to go back through and reanimate all the "quality" animation scenes/episodes. The series' high points don't deserve the low points.
I'm on Episode 7 of Tekkaman right now. Besides the design of Tekkaman himself, Andro seems to be carrying the whole show. Will Johji ever chill the fuck out and stop assaulting the other Space Knights?
>>18570389THE NAME'S ANDREI ULMEYDA
>>18568418>Toshiyuki Morikawa>Megumi Hayashibara>Takehito Koyasu>Yasunori Matsumoto>Hirotaka Suzuoki>NORIO FUCKING WAKAMOTO>Nobuo Tobita>Masaru IkedaEven the English dub managed to have its own trump card when O'Toole was being voiced.
>>18454519What even is Tekkaman anyways?Mecha?Tokusatsu?Space Opera?Hard Science Fiction?Greek Tragedy?Shakespearean Tragedy?Japanese ROM Spaceknight?All of the above?
>>18571674Don't forget Yuko Mizutani as Rapier and Kenyu Horiuchi as Balzac.
Rate Aki's Tekkaman form.
>>18573563Shit, what's that cross doing there?Is Tekkaman Blade a Christian anime?
>>18575295No, there aren't that many religious references, but God does come up a couple of times. I think Aki prays for D-Boy on occasion, D-Boy meets with Evil at a church, and so on.
>>18575314Maybe Christian in a metaphorical sense at least?
>>18575295>>18575314>>18575462A reminder. Next post to add to the context:
>>18576886"Dear God... Where are you now? He's already lost everything... his beloved father, siblings, and friends... and even his memories of them. What else are you planning to take away from him? How can you make one carry such a burden on his shoulders? He's just... yes, he's just a frightened soul! Please, God... Please... Please save D-Boy... "
>>18576888>>18576886Now this is some A-Grade, Tarkovsky-Tier cinematographic brilliance.
>>18576886Man, 1992 was indeed the peak of anime storytelling.
>>18570169I remember Blade having like four recap episodes as well.
>>18578979yep , one every 12 or so episodes , helps to catch on the fillr
>>18578979In the two times I saw the show, the only recaps I saw were episodes 40 and 45. The former because it's about Aki thinking about why she fell in love with D-Boy/Takaya and "Meditation". The latter because it was the story so far from Tekkaman Omega's perspective.
Are my ears messing with me or did Morikawa's voice became deeper in tone by the end of Blade, Twin Blood and the Burning Clock shorts? Not that I'm complaining.
>>18570389I want that afro
>>18579570To be honest, I didn't mind the filler episodes.
>>18581787thats what screaming until your throat bleeds will do to ya
>>18572048>>18572045>>18572042>>18572041I give Noa and Balzac points for attempting to fight the enemy Tekkamen.
>>18454519Best song for the ending of the OGhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zR_eIKvUjoU
>>18596122>>18596121"Where are you, Barnard? UWAHHHHH!!!"
Out of all the songs sung by Yumiko Kosaka, what are best ones?For those who don't know who I'm talking about, Yumiko Kosaka sang the opening and ending songs. All of them. Other songs of hers were used throughout the show's run as insert songs.I'll state my favorites in two categories then. First are openings/endings:1. Eternal Loneliness (2nd opening)2. Energy of Love (1st ending)3. Reason (1st opening)Inserts:1. Meditation (1st insert song; heard in episode 40)2. Once More Again (3rd insert song; heard in episode 46)3. Masquerade (4th insert song; heard in episode 48)
>>18597625Definitely prefer Energy of Love as far as ending songs go, but I can't really decide on picking Reason or Eternal Loneliness on the opening department.
>>18571736Don't worry, boomers and Western creators are incapable of appreciating this show.
>>18568235Here lies Tekkaman Lance, the first victim of Blade Blastor
>>18607703Keep the thread alive pls
>>18607703at some point well have to address this ...
>>18607749Imagine D-Boy having his memories of his family back so we could have a scene on him talking about them to Dead
>>18568241>>18568168>>18568204The only antagonistic Tekkaman who got killed by someone who isn't Blade
>>18608373Gets me every time.
>>18613801This looks amazing, did every episode had a promo pic like this?
>>18568235That guy actually seemed more scarier in his human form than in his tekno form.
is tekkaman tekka or man?
>>18454519That can't be D-Boy as a kid, right?
>>18620630of course not , its one of the people that got protoform´d into primary bodies during the first Radam blossoming
>>18620657Kinda makes sense that in a dream, Aki would be seeing a younger version of D-Boy giving her a flower. Makes it much more dream-like and tragic.
>>18620643Near naked Blade
>>18624696Never undersood why Takaya had a huge scar after a minor infury from his fight with dagger, but Fritz's face was completely fine despite having his eye gouged out in his tekno form.
>>18455801Gonna start saying that nowSPACE LANCE
>>18625587I can't remember but did Dagger state anything about keeping that wound as a visual motivation and reminder to kill Blade?
I accidentally watched the Twin Blood OVA thinking it was the first episode of the TV series. Was so ready for 50 episodes of that...
>>18629207Makes me wonder what Tatsunoko's pre and post production schedules were like during Blade's run
I had a theory that the brain slugs didn't necessarily turn D-Boy's family evil, but brought out their inner feelings and amplified them. Shinya literally admitted he kinda sort always hated D-Boy.
>>18633373Fucking Shinya and his inferiority complex.
>>18540642Probably the only thing I liked about the dub was the name change to Saber.
>>18568395>>18568398>>18568403This scene always gets to me.
>>18634672Yeah, Omega kinda went out like a bitch and did not seem to even half as strong as Shinya.
Why were earth tekkamen so weak compared to radam ones from the first and second seasons? Was their transformation process not very precise or did the humans not copy it perfectly?
For those who finished watching Tekkaman Blade, what character interactions would you've liked to have or had more of?
>>18635420Blade himself is a reject in the first place. That is why it has a time limit and power discrepancy to the others.Aki didn't get proper reformatted while using Evil's crystal so she lacks the basic abilities.Also Earth based Tek-system is flawed in the first place. It can only make something similar to the Radam's, but weaker in stats.
>>18638037I would have liked to see more of Dagger and Lance before they were captured by the Radam, as well as a little more of the oldest brother, Kengo (Omega)--we saw his relationship with Sword before they were captured, but not as much of his pre-war relationship with Takaya and Shinya.
>>18640938Dagger was a 27 year old German guy named Fritz von Braun. There used to be this small Japanese book that explained the backstory of all characters. I seem to remember reading that he used to be a spaceknight member before joining with Argos crew, but this might be bullshit.As for Lance, he was a Russian guy named Molotov. Little is known about him, as the book only covered events priot to Rapier's self-destruct.
>>18642715Takaya seemed to have known Fritz as he recognized him in episode 6. According to 'Twin blood OVA' Shiya also have known him.
>>18625637I must use the SPACE LANCE
>>18642733Post more Tekkaman webms
>>18576888Aki is a good girl
>>18649212>>18648352I love Takaya and Shinya's rivalry.
>>18642715Dagger's face here has this presence of smugness.

>>18455801I T S L I P P E D

>>18658491Oh no, what shall I do?!
>>18460046>>18658487That is one hell of a combination.
When it comes to using the boosters, for lack of a better term, in the Sol Tekkamen suits, how's that done?
>>18640929Anyone here played the Game Boy Blade game?
>>18671247boosters on the legs for hovering and moving fast , soltekkas dont actually fly per se in atmosphere, only real tekkamen have enough power surplus to waste it on flight, in space they go just fine if we go by what we saw on the orbital ring retake campaing late in the series
>>18675809I meant how are the boosters controlled when using a Sol Tekkaman suit?
>>18676034beats me , how are boosters controlled by ironman? macros? pressure sensitive `pads on the boots?who knows
>>18675809There are also thrusters on the back skirt armor.>>18676034If I had to guess, likely feet controls.The way the armor fits on the body seems to suggest that the human body isn't resting on their feet, and instead parts of the torso and legs are attached by various points allowing the body to "sit" in the armor allowing free movement of the feet for pedal controls.So likely push down harder for larger boosts, and the direction of the foot to determine what way for the boosters to move.But that is all guesswork.
Good thread, guys.
