I know the show isn't particularly great, but it's my favorite super robot show (mostly out of nostalgia). What'd you think of it? Personally, I liked the main cast even though most people seem to dislike them other than Masato. I really like the music, Ai Yo Faraway and Burning Love being some of my favorite OPs and EDs in anime history.Post your best Dancougar and Jyusenki-tai pics.
>>18496483You think that's a good picture? Get your eyes checked.
>>18496491Sorry, meant to post this.
>>18496495So, anon this is going to be an awkward moment where i just repeat what >>18496491 said
It's never the advance OVA wing version.
I watched it recently and it became one of my favorites too, as flawed as it is. I like the cast and their interaction ls really carried the show for me, all the banter and disagreeing/infighting with Ryo made it feel like they were a real team, not a bunch of automatons who agree with each other at all times, even if they do work together.I also really liked the variety of situations in episodes, sometimes they are defending a base, in another they investigate the mountain with the guerrillas.The animation is not the best, but pretty much every scene with Dancouga looks cool.On the other hand, the antagonists were pretty underwhelming and the story is pretty standard aliens invading Earth.
>>18496568I agree on the antagonists feeling quite underwhelming. Although I liked Death Gaia overall.
I wish the TV series had a proper conclusion and not just the Requiem For the Victims OVA, but the team defeating Muge with pure hotblood was awesome enough.Was the Dancouken created for the OVA or were there plans for it to appear later in the show had it not gotten canceled? Always wondered that.
The only problem show has is abysmal budget and at time nonexistent animation.Writing, characters, pacing and designs are all top notch.
Dancouga had a top-tier voice cast.
It's a good show. Overdue for another SRW appearance>>18496568Gildorome was interesting because you rarely see psychological warfare villains in /m/
I liked when First Underling General lost and Evil Emperor was like "UNDERLING YOU HAVE FAILED ME but that was some shit nobody expected, it's cool, I understand"
>>18496912That. Especially with how when Dancouga was headed for Muge's doorstep, Muge left it to Dethgaia to decide where to welcome Dancouga.
>>18496491>>18496515Or OP could just ignore you being a dick. Post what you like OP, any dancouga image is fine.
>>18496912Definitely one of the highlights of the show.
How would things go if Shapiro was the fourth member instead of Ryo?
>>18498022Wakamoto would still betray everyone.That's what Wakamotos do.
Soooo basically there was this song/music element to Dancouga that was meant to mimic Macross' success, leading to this live-concert by the voice actorshttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6X-AybWmk0wIJgcC3q_IlESRVkeTU5Z0
>>18498039That's pretty good, gotta admit
Dancouga is a really good show and personally it(and also nova) are up there with my favorites. The whole Militaristic Super Robot thing it had going on was really fresh for it's time and even today I can't really name anything else that could compare to the way it went about things. Where it really counted where the characters and their interactions with one another. Their DynamicI think people who criticize the show over exaggerate it's issues or are just being lazy, the budget being a big one. While the budget is inconsistent with itself and can get pretty shit, when it hits it's great(which is roughly most of the time) and it's back up by awesome art direction. I think Dancouga's peak was at God Bless, which has easily the best animation of the series and is really fun to boot. Blazing Epilogue gets a bad rep and I didn't care much for it when I watched it raw, but re-watching it with proper subs I thought it was pretty good.
I will always love how they let Shapiro pull some stuff out of Evil Wardrobe so he had Evil Eyeliner and stuff and didn't stand out
>>18498039I have no memory of the musical subplot. Was it an OVA thing?
Describe this character.
>>18501483I WANT TO CUM INSIDE SARA.
>>18499836>Was it an OVA thing?Yes. Early in God Bless, Shinobu performed at a concert he invited Sara, Ryo, Masato, Hazuki, and Laura to watch.
>>18499836Laura was supposed to be Minmay 2.0 and they even stunt-cast Rie Fujiwara, an idol/singer(sang the TV OPs) instead of a professional VA. But like you see in the show, they kinda forgot to write that Minmay plot-line...What's worse is that the music company changed between the TV and God Bless, so Fujiwara couldn't even reprise her role even though it was something minor.It was also generally felt that her character was a miscast and she was so embarrassed by her amateurish performance that she never picked up any voice-acting roles after, until she was invited for a cameo in Dancouga Nova.
>>18501680That explains why you could see her singing a lot during the first half, I guess.
>>18501483Hurt, angry. Confused. Someone trying to shake off a major betrayal and open up to someone else.
I liked Burn
>>18498401What was even the third general's specialty that gave him a reputation?
>>18506865I honestly only remember Death Gaia. I think he had like MIND POWERS?
>>18506865Death Gaia was just an army and brute force, Gildrome replaced him and his thing was fucking with your mind and perception, Helmut was a smarter Death Gaia but was really reckless.
I read there was supposed to be a theme of the relationship of God and Man and the mythos of it all. And on a surface level I can see it, but I feel like it doesn't get too far. You have these aliens from outer space who think of themselves as the pinnacle of sentient thought. Sharpio who's narcissism and natural talent mix together to turn him into a treacherous S.O.B. who thinks he is worth ruling everything. Dancouga itself *I think* trying to be a representation of spirituality. It has interesting ideas, I just never feel like they do them justice. Also Sara's a dumb bitch. Woman scorned and all that but every scene with Sharpio in the flashbacks is him being an absolute mustache twirler.
Seriously they could try their best to make this less obvious he was going to betray everyone. Never trust a dude with this much eyeshadow.
>>18498038I was about to point out COACH of Gunbuster but he kinda betrayed Kasumi in a way for her own good.
>>18506918Im still not sure why they ever dated. I mean I get it was to create tension and sense of jealousy in Shinobu but still....
>>18498038>That's what Wakamotos do.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KB8NudOP74But Lando had to betray Han, he had the whole people of Cloud City to think about.
>>18506945I barely felt that jealousy in Shinobu, or at least I don't remember it. Most of the time he was just mocking her for being stupid enough to date Sharpio in the first place. Or the fact that she actually tried to leave Earth with Sharpio just cause he was a dude she was shagging with. They did get some connection later on that I kinda liked, but I think Shinobu's only gripe with Sharpio was leaving Earth int he first place.
>>18506951Maybe Im imagining shit then, I haven't watched the show in a good long while
>>18506951Such a smug looking smirk from Shapiro
I bought the DVDs of Dancouga when they released the series in NA years ago. Still haven't watched it yet.
>>18509756I think a US BD is getting released soon
>>18506945She's a feeble-minded cuckquean, which was hintd in her song montage.
>>18506947I was more imagining him voicing Darth Vader or Palpatine instead.
>>18511616Palpatine maybe but Vader's a bit more....reserved
What;'s the best Dancouga figure?
Post Dancouga webms
>>18516819Is there a resource for the really bad animations? It's easy to look up stuff on Sakugabooru but sometimes I just want to crack up about the way characters slide across the screen and this dude's mustache does as well.
>I'm a genius!>Oh no!
What is this eye conveying?
>>18518820>I got a hot bitch in my head and you ain't shit.
>>18506918He was too based and redpilled, nobody could've known he would betray them
>>18519090That just shows further how much of a fag Shapiro was
>>18519090He wasn't the worst
>>18519090It's almost exactly thishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mt-2iux-uRU
>>18519090>>18506918>>18519159What a madlad
>>18519149Man, I'd choju those gasshins
>>18496483I had a blast watching it along with the ovas
>>18516865That moustache placement
>>18506933Damn it Wakamoto
>>18519149God Max combining figs never
>>185285383 dimensions isn't enough for obari designs
>>18506945Sara was thirsty.
>>18496483The progression from Dancouga TV to God Bless is mecha kino and a one of a kind viewing experience. Glad to see so many Dancouga bros here. Also FUCK early /m/ for pushing the "Nova is bad" rhetoric. Gave it a look myself a year ago and it was great.
>>18529953That's a cool figure
>>18529953I still gotta see Nova. Haven't seen it yet because I'm not a fan of the character designs, honestly.
>>18496483>I know the show isn't particularly greatBut it's great show tho.
Ai yo faraway
>>18531870Yes but it's damn near $500.
>>18540649Onore Sentinel, why are your products so expensive?
>>18544075it has good range of them
>>18520923>>18518872Aoi a cute
>>18549450>Draw a red>Call it a blueWhy is this allowed?
>>18529953Sell me on this shit. What makes the transition so based.
>>18549452It can also mean a couple types of flower.
How many TV episodes was Dancouga originally gonna have?
>>18529953What's the chances of Sandman providing techs for Nova, given his involvements? And is it linked to Angel Blade?
>>18498401>>18529953I wished Nova had more episodes
>>18506433Is there any mecha property Hasegawa hasn't tainted?
I like both the original Dancouga and Nova, but it always baffled me how the combination is basically 3 units becoming a pair of shoes and a hat while 1 is everything else.I wanted to think it was a callback to the power-up form of some Braves (Victory Saber too is very similar, with Victory Leo becoming a backpack+shoes), but then it aired much earlier than that (Dancouga is from 1985, Transformers victory is 1989).What I wanted to say is Dancouga is a weird combiner, still cool tho. I wonder why they went with this design idea.
>>18557096And the titular mecha making it's debut at the mid 10s.
>>18553627Aoi becomes Angel Nova. Think about it.
>>18557096Have you read Burn? It's got a more, let's say, traditional combination.
>>18559027Animal face kneepads
>>18560007You having a giggle?
>>18560647It's just that I'm so used to animal heads being placed as feet or on the top half of a body that I don't really see them used as knees to be honest.
>>18560647jesus christ it's a kneecap get in the car
>>18557096>but it always baffled me how the combination is basically 3 units becoming a pair of shoes and a hat while 1 is everything else.It's my favorite kind of combination desu.
This is Alan Igor's mecha, Black Wing. Say something nice about it.
>>18565024It's a real shame you exploded before you got to really combine outside an SRW game
>>18557096It makes sense. Rather than mashing 4 machines together for an unstable combiner, you just use 1 as the base for all the others.
>>18565030It doesn't. Black Wing and Dancouga are created by different military factions.
So I hear you like holes
Shapiro's shadowy dreams
the super minipla has me wanting more.i only have random eps, at the moment. is there no pastebin?
>>18565030I wish Alan had more screen time.
>>18575421Why did they even kill him off?
>>18576430Show got cancelled
>>18576457That's no reason for him to die!
>>18576463He wanted to look cool by pulling an heroic sacrifice
>>18576463It certainly resolves a plot thread quickly
>>18561775I'm picturing all of them combining together.
Did Obari ever mind Gundam 00 ripped off Nova's armed interventions?
Those shows aired the same year. Nova was first sure but I suspect 00 was in the works for a while. Plus they both do their own thing with the concept. I don't think Obari is the type to get mad easy about this kind of stuff. Even that whole Gridman mess was blown completely out of context. And, well, as much as I am a fan of Nova, I don't suspect it's a show Obari is especially protective of.
>>18549452Kurara and Aoi should've swapped hair colors
>>18516868I love this scene so much
Someday, I WILL own a Studio HalfEye Dancouga Nova
>>18590069Hope Nova gets a Minipla or some other modern figure.
>>18591175I'd take an Aoi statue with cast off pilot suit
>>18582417Any more screenshot comparisons of Nova's TV and DVD frames like that image?
>>18591175We were really close to a CMs Corp version before they fucking died
>>18593784>CMs Corp versionAren't those things like fragile and unstable?
The DVD version also has blink and you miss them nipples.
>>18593787I don't own any of the Brave Gokin figures, but I've heard they can be. Unfortunately we'll probably never know with this one.
>>18593785Makes me wonder how much time the animators had on drawing the TV frames.
>>18595630Probably not a lot. I actually really think the show might have been a bit better received if it aired as the DVD version. At least a bit.
>>18593789>>18593785There's also that weird sequence when they teleport back. They tv version had them with towels, so it made sense, but the dvd had them naked and they teleport back to base with their towels on for some reason.
>>18595700They could have had the towels off camera, though it would have been better if they showed up completely naked. I guess the DVD people were just having a spot of fun and couldn't reanimate everything. Maybe on a BD fix. This is never getting a BD.
>>18595728The dialogue right after brings up they're naked.
>>18595781I mean towels are still naked
>>18595787then why does nobody care if you're a hoopy frood who doesn't know where his towel isthe towel is key
>>18595728>SpoilerI feel hurt inside.
But seriously what the hell was the deal with Laura
>>18602135Supposedly Shapiro's sister but got cutted, hence why she knew Shapiro's song. Sara really is a cuckquean given Shapiro's 2 timing in the mv.
>>18602171I heard that her voice actress was someone the producer really wanted to be into.
>>18600334I hope someday I'll find a set of model sheets from God Bless Dancouga.
>>18576457This seems to happen on 80's shows quite a few times.
>>18560647Cute Liger face
>>18496483Kickin sound track.
>>18612046Huh. All this time I've been saying ARdaigun
>>18602171>Supposedly Shapiro's sisterWhat narrative purpose was this supposed to serve?
>>18612339Whatever dropped plot for Shapiro I guess.
>>18612657That gold is really nice to look at.
>>18614168There was supposed to be a toy version of God Beast but the prototype made it look like a frozen block of urine.
>>18555352nice obari twitter
What was his endgame?
>>18629294Is there a Zoids that looks like it?
>Design: Hisashi HiraiThese characters look pretty alright, was it the early digipaint and artstyle of the 2000s that fucked him over?
>>18636050No you're mistaken. Hirai was the *mechanical designer*, he designed the original dancouga which the toy is based on, which is why >>18634438 looks like kira yamato if you squint your eyes. Think they invited him back to design Dancouga Nova during it's production, there's a pic of it somewhere.The character design was by Toyoo Ashida's studio which did everything from Dai Apollon to Vifam to Wataru to Da Garn.
So why the wonky characterization in the last ova?
>>18629329Not really, closest I can think of might be the Gilvader but even that's a stretch. Can't think of any Zoids with a "chinese dragon head"
>>18636735Shame since Gundor is pretty vital for their ultimate final attack.
>>18636336I can't recall but did it have the same writing staff or were they actually burned out on Dancouga?
Shapiro is best boy.
>>18636814I wish Gundor had a humanoid mecha form.
>>18646723For me the best boy is Dan Aykroyd
>>18544173Go on until we get the entire sequence animated from your posts.
>>18658299I have 4 snapshops of this specific sequence, so it's actually possible
>>18549470Ah yes, the multiple meanings.

>>18673950>>18674196Nearly every shot of that OVA looked gorgeous.
Who had the shorter temper, Shinobu or Sara?
Here are some old Dancougar pics
by Masami Oabari
I like how the bird-beak extends far beyone the face. Looks cool.
Dancougar 超獣機神ダンクーガ by Yoshiyuki Takao
>>18677178I'm so glad it has a BD release.
My last one...
>>18519159That was hilarious! Here, have a pic of Napoleon in his younger days before he was played by Marlin Brando
>>18683478Someone must edit Shapiro's face into it.
>>18683449I miss these mecha paintings
>>18686133I feel like paintings in general aren't use that much these days for stuff. I mean occasionally you MIGHT get a star wars poster?
>>18683437Gundor a cute
>>18689040All the better too
>>18683447I'm picturing the bird beak being used as a headbutting attack
