Masami Obari is well-regarded here then why does Ginsoukikou Ordian still lack proper subtitles?
>>19059185It's almost halfway done but generally, I dunno. The show itself doesn't seem to be well too regarded but I thought it was neat.
>>19059192>censored nippleEvery time...
>>19059200You know he probably drew it too.
>>19059185We had a fansubber here slowly fansubbing it, but he was ran off by a butthurt quasi fansubber.
>>19060628Why can't we have nice things.
>>19060628I vaguely remember this for some reason, what was even the issue
>>19062509He just sort of quit. I don't think they ever gave a reason.
>>19064441The reason was that he never intended to do the whole thing and only wanted to show people that the available subs are godawful in hope someone else will pick the show up again
>>19064448Well I certainly appreciate his effort though I think his logic might have been a bit misguided. Do hope one day someone finishes what he started. *coughdiscotek*
>>19064451How is it misguided?I don't think they should be obligated to anything. No one's paying him to do it.
>>19064472Well, no. I didn't mean to imply anything of that sort. I'm grateful for what was done. I just think the idea that he'd start so someone else would finish might have been a bit ...optimistic.
>>19064476/m/ is pretty big with Obari as the OP states so it's pretty likely it would be something of interest. If you were to give the reason that the narrative is possibly irredeemably garbage, it doesn't matter since this is Obari.
>>19064485If nothing else it was a way to get word out on a mostly obscure series.
You have been beaten by Lead Spike!
>>19064527Sounds like a gundam name
Apparently this also had a manga.
>>19059185Here's the question, Is it good?
>>19064726Basically, shit story and narrative with good art, huh?
>>19064730Did you give a shit about the other Dancouga Nova pilots other than Aoi? I don't fucking think so
>>19064762Pretty sure every one liked the gun nut girl. You have a point about Johhny and the hobo though.
Only thing I know about this is some anon mentioning some time ago that the lead mecha is a complete jobber.
>>19064730>>19064770It's trash but it's fun trash. Not the kind of show you take seriously but something to watch as junk food.
>>19064472Because nobody is obligated to do anything. Doing something assuming that somebody else will finish that when you couldn't be bothered to finish yourself is just stupid.
>damn good art direction and aesthetic>top tier waifu and mecha design>legit shit story and narrativeWhat a fucking waste.
>>19059185Cuz we don't know Japanese.
>>19069035Who cares about story. Robot poses and tits.
>>19069035>>19069047It's not like Ordian has good animation or fights at all. I don't think there was ever a chance Ordian could have been good. Having a villain who wants to destroy the world because his wife cheated on him and comes up with an elaborate plan based on uploading his mind to clones to do so is a pretty hilarious villain motivation though. The biggest waste is the really experimental soundtrack. Half of it is terrible, but the other half is really good which is more than can be said of anything else in the show.
>>19069125I think you should know the difference between animation and art direction
>>19064795I recall one episode where the Kazuki Yao-voiced character outmaneuvered the hell out of Ordian.
>>19059185>Ginsoukikou OrdianJust fucking call it Platinumhugen Ordian like everyone else, you fucking weeaboo
>>19071207That's one of the more baffling things in the show:It feels like Yuu becomes worse and worse at piloting as the show progresses.
>>19072664That fight felt like the opposite version of the hero vs the far larger scaled enemy concept.
These are Yu Kananase's mecha, Dragon Fang and Ordian. Say something about them.
>>19074810Dragon Fang is my favorite Dragonar
>>19064568Don't know how to feel about this manga's artstyle compared to the anime's.
>>19077475I'd have to see the paneling.
>>19078616Thanks for the erection
Given Obari's involvement I'm a bit surprised it never got into an SRW game.
>>19078645How much does Obari remember Ordian if at all?
>>19078647I'm sure if pressed he could probably talk about it. He's had far more obscure works.
>>19078647IIRC enough that he once wanted to get his hands on the model sheets and cels again and asked his fans to help in the search.
>>19078672Also, I could've sworn that he once said that Ordian itself is his favorite mech design he has done.
>>19078679Did he say on his Twitter or some such?
>>19078685At least the one with the cels and sheets came from his Twitter years ago.
>>19078789>>19078685>>19078672>>19078655I remember him a few times where he wants or is waiting for Ordian to get a Blu-ray remaster.
>>19078679He's that proud of the titular mecha's design?
>>19081192I think it's cool
>>19069035>>19069047>>19081333I wish the mecha got more battle screentime.
>>19078647Also enough to reference it in Dancouga Nova.The jungle freedom fighters in it are the same guys with the same four-legged, pointy steel girder shooting mechs as the guerilla dudes from the first real battle in Ordian and the fights apparently even seem to take place in the same area.
What the hell was his problem?
>>19086594An evil scientist uploaded his mind over his, although that's basically his fault for trusting an AI that introduces itself as "Darkness Monster"
>>19086605Why did he agree to it then?
What the fuck was the story about? I only remember the intro song and one of the songs from the ost
>>19092487Spoilers for the overall plot, this is obviously leaving most episodic events out and it’s been years since I’ve seen Ordian so some of the details might be off: There are two scientists working on some sort of brain uploading/cloning/ thing called Remake. The show never gives good exposition about how exactly this works and what the rules of it are even though it forms the crux of the plot. Evil scientist wants to use it to bring back his dead wife and is working with his best friend who we'll call other scientist. Combining their specialties they succeed at building whatever the fuck the Remake system is and bring evil scientist's wife back from the dead. Then other scientist steals half of the Remake system and elopes with Evil scientist's wife. I have no idea if they were supposed to be having an affair before she died or if the resurrected wife is a totally different person or something else that would make this look better, honestly other scientist just comes across as a huge douche. Of course, neither scientist can rebuild this plot device without the other. Anyway, other scientist has a kid with his best friend's resurrected wife. This is the main character's sister. Evil scientist is obviously super pissed about all this and vows to use the half of the Remake system he still has to build a giant robot called Loki that will steal back the other half of the system thereby becoming omnipotent and using it to start some sort of Instrumentality knock off and destroy the world. Other scientist somehow realizes his friend will eventually try this and decides to build his own robot to stop his friend. This robot is Ordian and it uses the other half of the Remake system. He also creates a clone super soldier who will pilot Ordian, the main character Yuu. Finally he founds the PMC group that the show is centered on as a front to build Ordian and function as a support organization for it. The PMC is really just a cover.
>>19093348>>19092487Time skip ahead, all these characters are grown up and the plot starts. Yuu has been sent away to live a normal life and doesn’t know he is a genetically engineered super solider. I honestly forget what the explanation for this is, but the show does give one. IIRC the government kills other scientist and the wife or something. Yuu gets found and recruited by the PMC group now led by his adult sister, but she doesn’t explain the plot to him. Wolf is also a member of the PMC along with a woman named Nell who is a clone created by evil scientist sent to spy on the heroes. Wolf doesn’t know any of the backstory, but Nell does. This is where episode 1 starts. After this the first half of the series is just the four characters, Yuu, Wolf, Yuu’s girlfriend, and Nell being friends and doing training mission. This is intended to build the characters and their relationships so they can be torn apart in the second half. Nothing really moves the plot forward until the government tries to take over the PMC so that they can obtain Ordian and its super technology. This puts Wolf on the run where he escapes to a German castle where he finds Loki. He gets in and decides to let the robot’s AI, named Darkness Monster, scan his brain to start the robot. The obviously evil AI then uploads the mind of the evil scientist over Wolf’s exactly as evil scientist had planned everything. Wolf is now evil and has both sets of memories.
>>19093355Wolf takes Loki and goes straight to fuck up Ordian and take the other half of the Remake system so that he can start Instrumentality. With all the PMC forces broken up Yuu’s sister sends him to get in Ordian and fuses herself with Ordian’s AI system, which is needed to activate it for some reason. She spends the rest of the show basically frozen in carbonite. Ordian fends Loki off for a while leading into the second half where Wolf and the Government send monsters of the week to fight Ordian hoping to get the Remake system. Ordian jobs to all of them and Yuu’s friend sacrifice themselves one by one to actually get shit done until they are all dead except for one operator lady who was friends with Yuu’s sister and stayed to help stop the apocalypse. Eventually they finish Ordian’s ultimate weapon: a giant gun that can only be fired once before it explodes. It also needs to be piloted by a human for forced drama, so Yuu must sacrifice the operator lady to defeat Loki and save the world lest all his friends’ deaths be in vain. Because Yuu has spent the entire show fucking up at everything he refuses to do this and just lets the gun explode after the operator lady gets out. He then goes to fight Loki and gets his ass kicked like every other time he fought anyone. Wolf fuses Loki and the defeated Ordian, but miraculously unbrainwashes himself just before starting the apocalypse. He then uses the Remake system to bring everyone back to life in a shameless Deus Ex Machina ending.
>>19093359Wow. Yuus a bitch.
>>19093348>>19093355>>19093359This feels like a fanfic getting approved as an official work.
They don't make 'em like they used to.
>>19096485Nell is hot.
>>19096421A fanfic of what?
What's the most shafted mecha on Ordian?
>>19078616I forgot about her and the other dude after finishing Ordian
The world's gayest shirt.
>>19109113Definitely wanted to show off his pecs.
>>19093359This does sound like an Obari directed work.
>>19112694She's got the stink of a child hood friend all over her.
>>19120187Do you have the full page on the left? It looks like it contains a bunch of background info and terminology exposition for the show that would help the plot make more sense. Like actually specifying that Loki's AI is directly based on the evil scientist (named Rigardo, I honestly couldn't remember his name at all).
>>19120343Sadly, I only found this image from this link: https://twitter.com/oro_stsk/status/1268279601140133889
How popular was it back in the day? How popular is it today?
>>19122536Not particularly.The artbooks were more or less official doujins, the Dragon Fang figure was made by the semi-garage-tier company Gigabrain, it's unclear whether the Desperado one was even made or cancelled (it was listed on their page and an image of it exists that Obari posted but nothing else) and it mostly lives on as "that one Eva-esque show Obari did which has dogshit subs".
>>19124019Deseperado was so underused and abandoned.
>>19126215Thats a pretty slick signature. Not gonna lie.
Did he work as a stripper before joining the I.M.O.?
*Challenges you to fight him*
>>19061259There was this really cool votoms MAD set to that song that sadly disappeared from the internet a long time ago.
>>19132248A lot of old really rad mads got copyright fucked
>>19130855He dressed it because he thought it looked cool.
>>19059185I get Ordian and Orgun's names mixed up at times.
http://www.polljunkie.com/poll/asnqyi/potential-mecha-project lists Ordian as an option bros
>>19144573>http://www.polljunkie.com/poll/asnqyi/potential-mecha-projectThat list pretty much every shit under the moon including stuff like Ziguru Hazeru which isn't even a show but a bunch of commercials.Might as well sub Frame Robo while you're at it.
