The thing with Captain Earth is it had so much it could have done with the setting, yet for some reason they were content to spend literally half the show slowly introducing the Planetary Gears one by one by giving them backstories in their human forms which didn't end up mattering because their personalities changed when they got their memories back.

Like, don't get me wrong, I don't mind an excuse to have cool mecha fights on Earth, but they could have just cut to the chase, introduced all these characters as villains in one episode and they would have had significantly more time to develop other aspects on the show instead of spending so much time on characters that amounted to nothing. If they had given them less initial screentime then it would have made more sense when Puck basically kicked them out of the way at the end and revealed himself the true final boss because then it wouldn't have felt like all of that development was for nothing.
>>
>>19332663
Yes, this is basically the biggest problem with the show. I also think the romance was very weak. I wish it clarified whether the villains were aliens whose minds were uploaded into human bodies, or just humans who had copies of the aliens memories. I know it's kind of a ship of Theseus situation, but it seems weird that one of them is a hero who doesn't seem particularly bothered by at least having memories of being a immortal space vampire who genocided countless alien planets. You'd think someone would be concerned about working with him or he would feel guilty about it or something. Kind of a big think to sweep under the rug, especially if they are supposed to be the same entities as the original aliens.

It was a thoroughly standard mecha show, with some cool robots and fun moment. Definitely flawed but you can't expect every show to be worth it. Captain Earth is exactly what I expect and want from bones and I love them for it.

Certainly it's true that not every show is going to be great, it's just that this one went so far as to confidently state in its own logo that it was going to offer an unforgettable experience so it's not surprising that people are unhappy that it was a disappointment in that regard.
>>
>>19332663
It's good SRW bait at least
>>
>>19334671
There's a lot of "standard mecha show" to it, but I think the stubborn postivity sets it somewhat apart. A lot of shows would have pretty downbeat elements and Captain Earth seems like it's going for that a bunch of times only for the cast (especially the main character) to just kind of... disagree. Usually without fanfare or much drama, just "yeah, I broke that enslavement broadcast tower because I said I'd show you my boomerang". There's a lot of things the show fumbled, but I really liked that element and I don't think I've seen its like except maybe in Planet With.

Yes, the show basically forgot its own main villain was still around. I remember bringing this up when it first aired, but just like now the only thing people have to say about the show is "I want to fuck the brown girl" or "The robots were cool".

It could have been better, but it was a solid enough show that was entertaining and finally gave me a brown skinned heroine who gets the conventionally attractive MC so based on that its one of my bias favorites.
>>
>>19336837
>but just like now the only thing people have to say about the show is "I want to fuck the brown girl" or "The robots were cool".
I will add that I appreciate the character development of the main cast throughout the show. I distinctly remember a point in the show where one of the planetary gears confesses that he killed the MCs father, and the MC cooly states that he already knew. I recall respecting the show for that moment because in any other mech anime they would have played such a scene for all the dramatic tension they could wring from it, but here they allowed the MC to portray a level of maturity and levelheadedness not often seen in the genre. Its not much, but it lets you know there were competent heads in charge of the show even if all we got in the end was mediocre.

The frogs themselves are very low on the spectrum of reasons why people watch Keroro, and if they really wanted to go watch an anime with cute mascot animals they'd go and watch Kemono Friends instead.

I'm racking my brain thinking of an anime with a brown skinned heroine besides this one and the only one I can think of is Aquarion EVOL.

You know, I named Redline on a whim because that was a racing anime I liked a lot, but I just looked into it and it turns out that Redline was quite literally written by the Captain Earth guy. So if you don't like Captain Earth's story it actually makes sense that you don't like Redline's either.

Pitz and Lappa were cute, not sure why if the former is male would transform into a human girl though.

I don't think Pitz's gender was ever stated so it could be a girl. Alternatively the human girl could just be a very feminine boy.

Lappa was feminine in design and color, it'd make more sense if Pitz was male. On the other hand they could be intersexual like amphibians.

Now, if you want a Bones show that not only lived up to its potential but exceeded it, that would be Concrete Revolutio. However you have to consider that Concrete Revolutio is the definition of a "hard mode" anime. You have to be ridiculously smart in order to correctly follow everything that's going on in there. It makes G-Reco look like a cave painting.

Yeah that's an element that stuck out to me too.
The show avoids a lot of situations that in other series would lead to lots of interpersonal drama.
It was definitely refreshing, but I just wish it had been better.
It feels kinda emotionally weightless because of how reasonable the characters are when dealing with those situations.
I think just having a tad bit more drama would probably fix that.

>>19334681
>>19334671
I liked it, but for a show with its production values I was kinda expecting a lot more.
It's truly a shame how mediocre it all was because the visuals for this show were consistently amazing.
Designs, animation, shots,etc.
Bones' visually peaked in the 10s with AO, Captain Earth, and space dandy.
Also it's funny to note just how wildly inconsistent the writing behind these shows was and how they went from Bad, decent, to good respectively.

Hell, as far as I know, the only lasting legacy from that show is that "It's time for PLOT" GIF.

I think Guilty Crown was Sawano's first anime. So it was responsible for the endless amount of soundtracks he has now done.

Oh man, DaiShogun was hilarious. I remember how disappointed I was when I came to /m/ and people were just getting genuinely mad at the bad animation instead of enjoying the ride. What's also funny is it actually had a pretty fun premise for a mecha series that they actually tried to take somewhat seriously while butchering the animation.

this webm is what convinced me to try it the first time and I couldn't make it through the whole series because it was so fucking derivative and none of the lore had any thought put into it. And all the characters were bland. Also for those curious: scenes like this are very rare in the show. The fights are almost never animated this good, and on top of that, this scene right here was literally it in terms of sick animation for that episode.

isn't this just what mecha shows do now?

Darling in the Franxx was the same way. Interesting things up to the flashback episode, and then just shit out its own mouth for the rest of the show.

Anyone keeping up with the franxx manga? Did it get canceled? Did they pull out a better ending? Has Franxx been included in a SRW yet and the characters get better endings?
>>
>>19419252
>>19421457

eh, it kind of has a payout. They were leading to Macbeth and Demona falling in love and finally ending their curse and getting a happy ending, which might have given us a scottish gargoyle had magic changed macbeth into a gargoyle, or demona learning to forgive the humans as she was forced to live as one to be with macbeth....but they just kind of took a left turn and kept demona as a giant bitch

For all the things I liked about Gargoyles, they really knew how to shit up character redemption and resolving any issues. The final season was hot garbage steamy shit.

I think it's either they consistently run out of time to properly set things up, the people with the big ideas somehow can't figure out how to pay them off properly, budget, and/or random ass shit we can't even guess at.

>Why do you suppose this is such a consistent problem with mecha anime in particular?

well, if it is like US cartoons, the staff don't really want to work on the show. American Animators don't want to make sci fi or fantasy shows like the way people working on tv shows did in the 70s and 80s. Kids that grew up with comics and scifi/fantasy int he 50s and 60s really wanted to tell those stories. They were just happy to get the jobs. Transformers is a good example. Most of the original G1 transformers is written by people that wanted to write super hero comics or star trek / star wars stuff. They were happy to get the job and wanted to write that sort of stuff. Its why so many of the doomsday devices and world domination schemes of megatron were a lot like 50s and 60s comics.

Now, you got a lot of nerds that grew up with Utena, sailor moon, who wrote really creepy fan fics in high school about the Eds fucking harry potter. Thats what they really want to make and thats how we've gotten weird shit like steven universe and adventure time. They want to make generic adventure romance anime thats just a hair mysterious. They don't want to make thundercats.

IF japan is like that, these guys don't want to give us traditional happy well thought out mecha anime endings. They really wish they were working on another show. So they just force in some bullshit ending. One that either they dont care about, one that they know will piss the fans off because they hate their fans for making them work on such a show, or force in the ending from the show they wish they were making.

Given that Franxx's strongest episode was the flash back ep where 002 and hero and escapring together and that the klax are gencided, the big bad is not really defeated, and 002 and hero die out in space, I'm going to take a wild guess that the staff wished they were making dark shit like Grave of the Fireflies. You fall in love with the kids, then they die horribly.

Hm... it's kind of ironic isn't it, because Trigger was supposed to be a studio with a lot more freedom than your average anime studio, full of people making the shows they actually wanted to make. And I think Kill la Kill was one such show, it really felt like they were having a great time making that show. But Franxx, I have no idea what happened to them that they ended up making it. Perhaps as they gained more success they also gained less freedom.

Trigger didn't make Franx. It was A1 Pictures, the SAO people.

Too much freedom probably is the cuase, with Franxx, anyway.

If the show was intended to sell toys, someone higher up would have came in and told them to fuck off with the sad shitty ending.

Thats one reason you'll probably never see the MC of Gundam or Macross die at the end. The IP owners want to sell toys and model kits.

If Franx was something like Gundam Unicorn, The nines would have stilled died, and the show would have ended with hiro and 002 on a sunny grassy hilltop, holding each other and looking off in the distance.

That explains why it was better than KlK, the Witch ovas, Luluco, and the lackluster Gridman sequel.

It's way better just by ending on Franxx's high point, a lil' rushed but it's fine, especially when the manga wasn't meant to go that far.

Just read it. It was a lot better. I would have rather the klax been saved and the princess merge with 002 to make 002 complete, but I guess this series was hell bent on some sort of grim or sad ending.

At least the Manga ends with Hiro/002 surviving to be happy together and maybe have klax children.

I agree with you about the characters being great, their interactions were entertaining and the performance by the voice actors were really on point, portraying their feelings in a great light. What it bothers me the most is that it feels that the plot was rushed in the last few episodes, a common trend in series made by Bones sadly, also the ending although it was okay, it makes me wish for more closure and a less ambiguous finale, but then again it just my opinion.
>>
>>19492303
I like ambiguous endings but it didn't really feel like it had earned it. I wish they'd learn to stop meandering but maybe we're in the minority and people enjoy that kind of thing because they keep doing it and they're still kicking.

This show had it's ups and downs and largely suffered from some really bad pacing, but heck if I didn't enjoy it for moments like these that were littered throughout it.
