Is GaoGaiGar a good entry into super robots?
>>
>good
Fuck no. It's the best

It was my second show in the genre and I absolutely loved it.

Feel like da garn or dagwon was better, but GGG is still excellent
>>
>>19206350
"super robot" is an aesthetic at best, bro. You go from GGG to Getter Armageddon and you won't find anything in common other than glowing green shit
GGG is a show that starts off really strong, gets steadily worse as it goes on, and ends up just kinda average on the whole.

>>19206463
is right, if you're interested in Brave type shows, you should probably check out Da Garn first. It doesn't look as nice, but it is consistently good throughout the whole show and also has a better OST.

Honestly, Da-Garn gets a bit too stupid with the amount of robots and transformations. I haven’t seen Dagwon or GGG, but Da-Garn’s a bit overrated.

Da Garn has no more than your average Brave. GGG has about the same as Da Garn and Dagwon has more. They're toyetic shows, don't watch them if you can't get past that.

My favorite is GaoFighGar, so not at all.
>>
>>19206350

I believe Gaogaigar is the culmination of things that worked, and what didn't work in the Braves series. Whether that is a good or bad thing, is opinion of course, but I think of it as a positive.

A few examples:

-Has a Kid as a main character, but that Kid actually has a purpose other than being just "Friend of the Braves"

- Other main character may be a cyborg, but is still very much human and is awesome big bro, and not some dumb (or clueless) alien.

- Main mech doesn't have more than 2 forms and doesn't combine with other mechs to alter its form, save for one, and it's just one arm. And it's second "form" is just a new version of its backpack.

Every piece of GGG seems just a bit more polished, and yeah, maybe a bit too much for some tastes... But it'll very likely have things you will like, because it was basically designed to.

And GGG FINAL... Well it's what the creators thought fan service for the series should be. A mix of OMG EXTREME EPIC moments and some questionable character choices and designs.

Exkaiser and Fighbird are dull

Da Garn is probably the objective best Brave show, I can't think of a single flaw other than
Great Da Garn GX's attacks being kind of lame. It's very plot heavy compared to other Braves. it's even arguably the best animated apart from GGG.

Might Gaine most of us haven't watched because nosubs, but if the SRW games its in are anything to go by, it's okay.

Goldran is also really high tier and is my favorite, but it's a very comedic show and if the jokes fall flat, you might not like it. Still, it's got really strong characters and its story goes places. Shit OP, sadly

Dagwon is good, I like it, but it's kind of in spite of itself. The characters are all pretty one note and bland and the plot doesn't really do anything interesting. It has a big problem of having too many unrelated villains. But in spite of that, I love the artwork, I think it has great pacing (something important happens like every 3-4 episodes), designs are good, ost is good. If you're watching it for the fights, you'll probably like it.

and when Dagwon goes off the rails it makes up for any dullness the rest of the series had
like the one with the teacher, or the one where the Bad Guy is going to open the box if Dagwon doesn't stop him, and it will unleash Sin upon the Earth! Dagwon completely fails to stop him but it's okay because nobody notices since humanity was already shit. See you next week, kids!

What a weird take. I don't know how you can enjoy bog standard monster of the week and limited cast over the full cast and all the moments that make the show memorable.
>>
>>19223257
Because it's the exact opposite of what you're claiming

GGG's first half isn't standard MotW like you see in other Braves. It's a bit smarter than that. They introduce problems that GGG can't overcome by brute force or more powerful combinations. Instead Guy has to use various tools and synchronize with his teammates to solve things, all while dealing with his own deteriorating health as a result of Hell & Heaven overuse.

The show has less and less of this aspect as it progresses and more or less abandons it entirely by the time Pizza becomes J. At that point it becomes a thoroughly generic, forgettable super robot space opera where things are solved with yelling and THE POWER. Anyway, if you're using MotW like it's some sort of demerit, Braves aren't for you regardless.

What? The first 15 or so episodes are absolutely zonder of the week shows up, new robot/tool is introduced, guy defeats zonder of the week. It picks up a little when Volfogg comes along and finally begins to hits it's stride when Mike is introduced which is 20+ episodes in. Tokyo and everything after it is gold but the stuff before it can be hard to get through. I really don't know what show you watched but I can't see how you think the show started out better than it ended up. That's insanity.

>>19225484
Because the fight scenes sucked later on, except for the last episode. That's really all there is to it. There's less thought put into them. I remember the part in the first half where GGG had to disable the four tier barrier to break into the zonder plant way more vividly than I do anything from Tokyo battle onwards because there was just so much more to it than the shit I saw later on. It was like the culmination of every prior episode

Aside from the damage to the pilot that's pretty standard Monster of the Week though. There's always a specific gimmick that the hero needs to handle.
>>
>>19227364
That's not even true, though. Ga Ohn, Seven Changer and the Land Bison crew all pretty clearly have some attitude. It's just Da Garn and the Sabers that are kinda boring
>>
>>19227392
I've watched a lot of MotW shows, and I can pretty confidently say you're wrong
Brute force does win a lot of the time (very often in episodes where directors clearly wanted to focus on plot but were mandated toyetic fights, see Big O), and teammates sometimes aren't even present. If they are present, they're often there to job instead of being actually useful (see Boss Borot, etc).
Tools are rarely as consistently and thoroughly established as they are in GGG. Usually they're pulled out of the director's ass. See >>19226894, it was awesome, but at no point did we ever get any indication that Da Garn had a "traction beam" ability before that point. Nor was that the only time such an occurence happened in the show, and Da Garn isn't even that much of a MotW show compared to other Braves

Granted, GGG's first half wasn't anything super exceptional given the Brave format. It just had great execution.

>GGG is a show that starts off really strong, gets steadily worse as it goes on, and ends up just kinda average on the whole
I just finished both the TV series and Final and honestly I'm gonna have to agree with this at least partly. Both of them had an issue where the "second half" villains were really weakly characterized and poorly handled with wishywashy or downright nonsensical motivations and stuff like The Power to muddle it up even more. J at least was cool but he couldn't quite carry the entire show at that point.

The first half of GGG TV is just a really solid take on the Yuusha formula that I was already very used to from the other entries, and afterwards it felt like the writers tought they needed to ramp it up to some insane proportions but had no idea how to really do it, and lost the Yuusha charm in the process. Not to mention both drag out their endings to the extreme: the final ep of Final alone had like four different "we're at our very lowest moment and the villain suddenly negated our desperate last ultimate attack BUT WAIT there's still more extra special YUUKI we found" moments.

I fucking hated Victim and the final antags for GGG though. The ones for GGG were just.. okay..? The machine kings were great and that's about it... ah geez. When you describe Might Gaine, it sounds like just a standard Brave series in hindsight..
>>
>>19237824
Well I know plenty of people love Might Gaine so I might just be a grump, but I've always thought the "boy and his robot" dynamic to be the best part of the franchise, and it's why J-Decker and Da Garn are my favorites (and why I'm still fond of the otherwise mostly unremarkable entries like Exkaiser and Fighbird). Might Gaine definitely downplays it in favor of a Bruce Wayne hero MC and his personal robot sidekicks, and I don't think it has enough other strengths to really make up for the lost charm.
>>
>>19237856
>unremarkable entries like Exkaiser and Fighbird
Hm? What's good and bad about those?
>boy and his robot
Didn't really feel that in 3G, Gai was a cyborg and Mamoru was an ayy with a lion that didn't really talk or act personable. But for J-Decker, absolutely.
>Bruce Wayne hero MC and his personal robot sidekicks
I like Batman, but not really sure how to feel about personal robots... if the bond's already there, wouldn't it be just "tells, doesn't show" about how much they care for each other and etc? Part of the charm's the bots developing hearts and care and bonds, etc.
>>
>>19237877
>Exkaiser and Fighbird
They're just pretty basic and formulaic. Still fun though.
>>
>>19237380
Da Garn and Goldran are both must watch
Da Garn is more or less the best Brave at, well, pretty much everything except animation, and even then it's one of the higher tier Braves. They don't even use a stock footage finisher for most of the first half of the show
Goldran is the most unique Brave by far. It's a weird, screwball comedy where every episode is super wacky. It's got outstanding creativity, but its plot, characters and action are still above average for the franchise. Hell, it's a show that actually allows robots that aren't Goldran to get kills every now and then. It being silly doesn't stop it from having moments of badass.

They're the only two must watch shows of the franchise. I'd say both are better than GGG and J-Decker.

I'd argue that even if it wasn't "a boy and his robot," Mamoru and Gai's brotherly relationship was still similar to some of those relationships in the other Braves.

Wh-what..? What even is this show..?
>it's a show that actually allows robots that aren't Goldran to get kills every now and then
Yeah, new bots get the kill in their debut, but it's the (upgraded) main guy that usually wins the big victory...
tfw in J-Decker liked Shadowmaru and felt horrible when he was alone, was glad for his super-gun mode, then got bummed when it never showed up again
I liked Gunmax too, but he's LITERALLY built to be J-Decker's gun, with no other altmode
Argh, give a break to the little guys...
>both are better than GGG and J-Decker.
Holy smokes...

>>19239172
>some of those relationships in the other Braves.
Wasn't a fan of the girl in J-Decker, so hopefully there's some fun relationships in Da Garn. Normally I'm either annoyed by or just pity/bemoan goofball characters like Team Rocket or whatever, but the police officer is just cute and pleasant. Hoping he gets a chance to shine, maybe with his own robot buddy or something.

My honourable gentle/m/an. I've just woken up. I'm drinking my coffee and thinking about all of the bullshit I have to do today. and then I read this. You've done me and anyone who reads your post a terrible disservice! Well not really. But I do think that GGG has the better OP. Not sure about an OST as a whole.

Da Garn's good so far, didn't normally like joke/dummy chars but I'm liking and feeling bad for the cop. He shows up in the ED and just seems a friendly sort. No spoilers but does he become important later on? Hoping he has a robot fren he commands or hangs out with.

>>
>>19251453
Awww, still hoping for the best.
That's absolutely adorable and heartwarming and was exactly the sort of things I was hoping for. Da Garn seems a bit flat now but I'm hoping that he develops more of a personality as time goes on, only like 2-3 episodes in though. Really hoping the cop has a nice relationship with Da Garn, it's his car after all, ahahaha. He seems like the gag/bullied/slapstick character done right, abuse light enough to be cute without hating the show for bullying him. Can't wait to see how the show goes!
>>
>>19251574
Da Garn's kind of the opposite of J-Decker, I'm afraid. It doesn't really give the robots much personality and there's not much character development in general (though there is a bit with some of the villains). On the other hand, every single episode moves the story forward in some way. The show has a very strong sense of momentum and structure. There's nearly always something important happening, so it's easy to stay engaged with it.
>>
>>19251606
That's a bit disappointing... I saw the cute bots smiling in the cute ED and hoped.. argh.
>much personality
Please tell me there's at least something to work with, or at least "this bot is calm strategist, this one is hothead or kid" etc..? No episodes centering on a certain bot? Just give me something...
>people recommended/favourited Da Garn over J-Decker and GaoGaiGar
I trust you guys, so..
>every single episode moves the story forward in some way. The show has a very strong sense of momentum and structure.
At least there's no filler episodes, then, as fun as those can be.
>>
>>19252450
>people recommended/favourited Da Garn over J-Decker and GaoGaiGar
I think it is, but you got to understand that you'll be watching it for a different reason than you did J-Decker. Which is kinda true of all Brave shows, really. None of them go as hard on character development as J-Decker does. But anyway, Da Garn, you watch for the story. Give it til around episode 10, that's where the first big twist happens

>Please tell me there's at least something to work with, or at least "this bot is calm strategist, this one is hothead or kid" etc..? No episodes centering on a certain bot?
They tried at least a little. The Lander team guys are obviously more hotheaded than everyone else, then there's Seven Changer who is kind of a spoiler so I won't get into him. As some others mentioned, character focus is more on human cast and villains. I really like Redlone being a weeaboo manchild, dude's hilarious

Yeah uh, I feel bad for those guys the most because delegated to jobber roles unless the former combines and the latter just isn't there.

Bizzare how this dead franchise keeps getting promo events. I don't understand in the slightest. It's like they want to resurrect Yuusha, but don't want to commit to it. So we get these weak half measures like the GGG webnovels and stuff like Earth Granner which is aiming for the same audience but missing the mark. Tired of it. If they're doing something big, they need to stop beating around the bush, otherwise stop with this kind of thing

I'd guess the big issue is Sunrise being owned by Bandai, so it's troublesome for Takara to work alongside them.

Earth Granner and Shinkalion show they're still going after that audience though (and have actually been fairly successful, even Earth Granner that has been reported as doing worse than Shinkalion is still above Super Sentai in sales).

Japanese are immune to seizures. Gaogaigar wasn't big in the west, but Pokémon was, so that was taken down due to outside pressure.

On the off-chance you're the anon from /toy/ whom I recommended J-Decker to, I'd advise against reading related posts or images, unless you want bots or plots spoiled!

Has Obari ever even drawn the J9s? I was trying to figure out they were doing with a Bryger figure on that stream. It's not a combiner and it certainly doesn't strike me as a popular design. I've never seen it in a 3x3

Heh, I knew it. Obari's too much of a nerd not to have drawn like every 80s robot. That intense expression he gives it makes me like the design a lot more than I usually do.
