Episode 6: What is this sadness?Yume hears a rumour about Kano's death from a student of the choir club to which she belonged before her death. Meanwhile, Koyomi wakes up from a hangover and realizes that he has lost Dyna Striker. When Koyomi is blamed by Gauma, he remembers that he met with Mujina, a monster eugenicist, last night.Voice Drama 5.5https://streamable.com/xcuhng
>>19631560I can't believe Koyomi is getting raped
>>19631560I love the voice dramas.
reposting again>Kano wasn’t depressed at school, but was depressed at home>Yume’s parents don’t talk and always fight, but it was never specified when>Rumors from episode 1 likely refer to Kano committing suicide from teasing at schoolso what if the reason for suicide was this: a household that was unstable, or beginning to be unstable even before her death, teasing and bullying at school despite her best efforts to keep up appearances, and with no one else to go to, she at least wanted to form something with her younger sister, but something triggered her to kill herself right before the recital?Also, I find it interesting how Yume in particular is the one that notices Chise’s arm sleeve. Kano is supposedly cold and unhappy at home, and in videos is always wearing long sleeves, so maybe Yume has experience with seeing self-harm or bullying scars too?
garbage showjust reminding you guys
I hope the big twist reveal will be good
>>19632767What exactly was the twist in Gridman?
>>19632754thank you, see you next week
>>19632792That it was a sequel
>>19632076Koyomi was pegged by Yomogi's boss when they were in middle school
>>19632767SSSS.Dynazenon is Gauma's afterlife post-mummification as he struggles to come to terms with the people of his past, with aspects of the princess being split up among Yume, Yomogi, Koyomi, and Chise, and it'll tie directly into the Cyber-mummy episodeJust kidding
>>19632942What a lucky guy
What is this expression trying to convey?
>>19632964>did I leave my phone at the water park oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck
>>19632416Why post this again when this is such an easy conclusion to come to?
>>19633157because promoting any discussion is better than none
this show was a bad choice to get a girl into /m/
>>19633180>this show was a bad choice to get a girl into /m/Yeah, should've let her watch Code Geass and tell her that it's similar to some Gundam shows.
>>19633265the point is to watch it with her and I'm not putting myself through code geass
>>19633180>>19633277If i were you i would have watched IBO with her. I did it with my sister and she liked it.
I wonder if the show is heading to an ending where Yomogi asks Yume on a date
>>19633350Probably, I wished it would be before the last episode. I'm more curious about Gauma and the Eugencists.
>>19633350He should pick someone else. Like Mujina.
>>19633399>I wished it would be before the last episodeNah, ending it with Yume actually showing up for the date after all the world-ending/ trauma development would be a great finale.
>>19633403Mujina gonna steal Koyomi from married enabler ladyThen she'll steal Yomogi too[/spoiker]
Chise looks really pissed in the PV. Think Koyomi took a selfie with Mujina?
>>19632964Breed me now, Yomogi you stud.
>>19633441Or with Bossu, more likely.
I just want to say that I fucking love the vibe these SSSS shows have. They're so chill and natural and there's nothing quite like them.
>>19633725Watch more anime.
>>19633441i see a Gamecube under her desk
>>19633922Get stung by more bees
Hey are they still basing all the characters on Shattered Glass toys colour palletes?
>>19634016We're honestly not sure
>>19633725Same, but it only works for me if the characters are enjoyable. Gridman characters were boring
>>19634250Akane and Alexis are great.
>>19633151Gauma being petty is fun.
>>19634016Not this time, and unlike last time, no one's cracked the code on what the characters are based, we're not even sure if they're transformers. The one character everyone's sure we have right, is based on a Microman. Everyone assumes Chise is Hooligan from G2, but since it didn't crack the code like it did for the SG characters, it's possible she's something else.
>>19634356Yeah they were, but at the end of the day despite loving Alexis design and sense of humor. He was more like a comedic relief villain. I agree Akane was good, at least before her shitty apology
>>19634774The fuck is this
>>19634774this looks almost as bad as the show does
Kaiju from episode 5 is named Neophobia. Its concept and design came from Kiyotaka Taguchi, a long time Ultraman directorhttps://dynazenon.net/kaiju/#/npa
>>19634934This was my favorite one so far I think. Actually kinda surprised me when it flipped over and opened its mouth.
>>19634934I hope all the kaiju this season come back towards the end
Spoiling your ending
>>19634774So detailed yet so cluttered. Well crafted but sometimes less is more.>>19634199Chise version is better because we have something to rest our eyes on.
Does anyone have this image in high res?I've only been able to find this in this shitty resolution.
>>19634407I thought some of the characters were based off of Gekiranger of all things (Chise->GekiTiger, Koyomi->GekiElephant, Yomogi->GekiShark), but it's such a loose connection and doesn't explain Gauma (or the Kaiju Eugenecists if their unified colors are indeed based on anything)
>>19635500Is this a spoiler?
>>19635518It's just Dyna Dragon, anon
>>19635380>>19634799>>19634791It's okay to be gay
>here's your Gauma
>>19635526No i mean it looks good but I was wondering what it was. Like a mix between Dynazenn and something else? Robot looks like something for the finale against the big bad guy
>>19634407What exactly are the current assumed guesses, anyways?
why is the best girl getting so little screentime?
>>19635350I wonder if there's enough digital world shows to make a super robot wars like game.
>>19634407>Everyone assumes Chise is Hooligan from G2, but since it didn't crack the code like it did for the SG characters, it's possible she's something else.There is no code nor pattern you are autistic.
>>19635649>Transformers fans are autisticFixed that for you
>>19635579Some people have thrown out Beast Wars Transmetals and G2 stuff, but none of it is quite right. The only comparison that's been correct so far is the Microman. I'm sorta convinced they aren't Transformers at this point.
>>19635599She's literally the focus of the upcoming episode.
>>19635654>The only comparison that's been correct so far is the Microman. I'm sorta convinced they aren't Transformers at this point.I wouldn't doubt it, going for SG last time was super ballsy of them. I think non-homage colors would be a better call this time aroundIf they're gonna stick with (relatively) obscure Hasbro/Takara, I would go for either Beast Saga or B-Daman; just generic enough that you can't pinpoint it exactly
>>19635599I hope Koyomi is good in the sack
>>19635700This whole series is gonna end up being about Koyomi's journey from neet to chad, isn't it? Yomogi and Yume are just decoys.
>>19635738I want jellyfish kaiju fanart
>>19635654All I could personally think of was Macross 7, with enough variety to cover the 9 poster characters. At this point I would be fine if there was no homage at all (or the homage wasn't strictly mecha-related, maybe kaiju)
>>19635691Funny you should say that, I've already combed through B-Daman and Beast Saga without much luck.
>>19635775Their designs are too specific not to be based on something like the previous series. But that's just me. And I've had no luck since its started. And some anon kept screeching at me
>>19635775The problem is that we already have one homage identified and Yomogi in particular has too many oddly specific details to ignore.I'm almost certain that Koyomi's rolled up pant leg has something to do with his reference. That's exactly the kind of shit the Gridman references operated on.
There were a few homages, but no clear theme. The closest to a theme were the Dynazenon vehicles being similar to the Super Guts machines in Ultraman Dyna.
>>19635810I'm divided on Chise. It's so similar, but why stop at the eye color? (Unless she gets orange eyes later??)
>>19635817The only other one I felt strongly about is Onija. That damn smirk is BW Mega as hell.
>>19635798The way Gauma's arms are segmented scream robot toy arms but I just can't place. They might just be fucking with us as well.
>>19635837Seem like a big stretch to me.
>>19635775>>19635817>inb4 the character designer is just a fan of aviation and they're all random ass airplanes
>>19635833I feel like Gauma's the homage red herring and instead an inside joke between animation companies
>>19635846That's a common symptom of those who lack imagination.
>>19635863OR... you're just desperate.
>>19635725>Koyomi becomes a chad and regains his self-esteem>Yume moves on from her trauma and sister's death>Yomogi gets a girlfriend>Chise learns to stop being a neetKino
If there was justice in this world they would have picked the syber squad recolors.
Gauma and Yomogi are the true end game.
>>19635896>Yomogi's boss is the real villain because she wants Yomogi
>>19635908Gauma will defeat her.
>>19635896Eww no thanks
>>19635927Don't worry Gauma will die or something afterwards.
>>19635933>Gauma goes back to sleep before the romance can go through anything meaningful because Gridman beats up the monster from the episode
>>19635938Don't forget that it's completely one sided too, Yomogi will be sad and almost say something maybe but it will be left ambiguous.
>>19635944>Don't forget that it's completely one sided tooI really doubt Gauma would suddenly go gay if Yomogi turns out to be the raincarnation
>>19635952He'll say like an emotional speech that can go one way or another yeah.
>>19635944And also a stinger of older Yomogi, now financially independent, getting asked why he's still living alone, before cutting to black and him saying he's "waiting on someone">>19635952It'll be part of Gauma's "moving on" arc
Yomogi's boss is the resurrected woman Gauma is looking for
>>19635964I'm still going with the "Yume's sister is Gauma's woman reincarnation" theory
I completely forgot about Yume's "stood up" schtick and assumed this guy would be important; he's probably just snapping at her for the previous night
>>19635880Koyomi the cutest
>>19635978That'd be a good twist.
>>19635810I like how apart from the mask girl's blatant Statue of Liberty on her cardigan the rest of Yomogi's friends have essentially nothing standout, not even glasses guy's wireless earbuds around his neckI genuinely don't mind not getting blatant homages this time around, since we're getting a relatively atypical story (at least in relation to Ultra/Gridman)
>>19635978At least he didn't kill her
>Gauma following Yomogi references the mummy following YukaObviously the resemblances exist in Yomogi because the resurrected woman is his grandmother
>>19636113>Yomogi hearing strange moans from his granny's room at night>Gauma isn't in his futon
>>19636113>Gauma following Yomogi references the mummy following YukaI can't wait for this to happen purely for the salt.
>>19636113I can't wait for grandma to die and have Yomogi call the cops when she comes back to watch TV again
>>19636163>OOIIIIIIIIIIII, YOMOGIIIIIIIIII>YOUR GRANDMA'S A GREAT LAY
>>19636016Those earbuds have to be referencing something though...
>>19636113Gauma is following Yomogi because he reminds him of a Transformer but can't put his finger on what one exactly
>>19635810Maybe there are more Microman Command toys? They fit in really well with the mummy theme. There were 4, Sphinx, Eastern Island Head, Shakkoudogu and Statue of Liberty (but the girls were angels) all ancient ayylmao civilization stuff.
>>19635796>And some anon kept screeching at meShut up bitch no one is screeching at you now.
>>19636064>no housesgridman prequel?
>>19634934my favorite so far.this one looks groovy as fuck, the colors and that pattern reminds me of those pop graphic designs
>>19636875See, there it is again.
>>19635780This was the only comparison that I thought came close for Gauma and the Eugenicists (Gelshark/Gigatron from Car Robots) mainly due to their color schemes but it just seems off/wrong after the Microman find.
>>19636974IM NOT SCREECHING AT YOU
>>19636879Back in SSSS gridman, nothing exist outside the cities. Akane made her on the fly.
>>19637009The Eugenacist in the swimsuit episode reminded me of Snapdragon. But tons of transformers have purple cyan and white
>>19636869There aren't very good databases for Microman, but I've done a ton of digging and can't find a good match for anyone else.
>>19635978Yume said as much like five minutes into the first episode though.
I'm posting just a couple I saw that people were theorizing before the show even started
>>19637207I'll never understand this one. The colors aren't even remotely right.
>>19637399Neither account for the chevrons on his hoodie or the distinct yellow/green details on his shoes, hairpins, and phone.
>>19637297BREAKFAST IS READY
>>19637404Again, just posting what was theorized before the show started
Everyone is very specific to a shattered glass character, for instance
>>19637621To be fair, in SSSS.Gridman the support vehicles were bayformers instead of SG. So there might be a possibility that we have one-off themes like the microman lady.Also Gauma's stripes have to indicate something. It feels really distinct like how the support vehicles had those symbols on their chest to indicate what dinobot they were.
So the characters looking like some toys matter in the end in some way or form?
>>19634934>a long time Ultraman directorI was about to say "It wasn't that long" but then I remember 2011 was 10 years ago. Fuck.
>>19637669They can offer reference to a particular series and where the story might go. Characters designs would also reference characteristics and running gags like almost dying or toys that are normally partners who would be connected in the show.
>>19637799There is something I've always wanted to ask, is Transformers Japanese or American?
>>19637900Bit of both. Diaclone was what it was originally called in Japan. Then hasbro bought the rights/distribution to sell the toys in the west and called it transformers. It much more money which spawned the cartoon, recolor for generation 2, beast wars and so on. Takara ran with it and made Japanese exclusive toys and anime as well.
>>19637900>is Transformers Japanese or American?Short answer: It's both but leans to American nowadaysLong Answer: It's Japanese designs with American storytelling at the time.Both sides have created content and toys exclusive to their region. So some stuff is 100% Japanese and some stuff is nearly 100% American (nearly because stuff like Optimus will always be an inherent Japanese mecha design even if they're different takes. Stuff like Hot rod is 100% American).
>>19637963This. He worded it better than me
>>19638006Ehhh I'm not convinced that's the source for Gauma.
Yomogi x Chise and Koyomi x manager won some points this week. This is getting fun
>>19638043Chise and Koyomi too. Soon Koyomi and Mujina
>>19638024I've skimmed all of transmetals and G2. None of them seemed to fit. The g2 dinobots were close but so far no one has found more
>>19637297Gauma will take any job at this point huh...
>>19638043I hate this dumb shipping chart. If you won't even add these two, it's pointless.
>>19638227I don't see the LGBT tag in Dynazenon
>>19638043Imagine being yomogi and going for the autistic girl when you have friends that look like this.
>>19635599Because she's too fucking old.
>>19638229>wanting spoilers in the tags
>>19638043Meanwhile Yomoxi/Yume coins are through the roof
>>19638559Yume's already getting btfo tho...
>>19638284Yomogi knows he could easily get in their pants if he wanted to. The dude wants a challenge.
>>19638559Koyomi x Mujina coin launching this Friday.
>>19638609Will she heal the heart of the cute Neet?
Is Chise the only character with two distinct colors in her eyes? I just noticed that while everyone the rest of the case just has a lighter version of the main eye color in their eyes, hers have blue and pink.
>>19638559They have no right being that fucking adorable.
>>19638612She will try but don't ay she wasn't warned
>>19638625Uh huh this is a good observation.
damn you to hell shippers...
Could the eye color denote the difference between compoids and repli-compoids? Maybe that's why they don't seem to be phased by the destruction? Is Chise a refuge from somewhere else?
>>19638979What kind of talk do you expect after the swimsuit episode?
>>19638979Hey to be fair, this is another Kiznaiver and FranXX. Don't complain
Was there anything in the original Gridman that had pink and blue as prominent colors? >>19638986That's a possibility. If someone else shows up that has two eye colors, then we might be onto something
I'll be honest, i don't see what Yomogi sees in Yume. Sure she is cute and funny but that's about it.
>>19639465>Sure she is cute and funny but that's about it.That's all it takes for high school nerds to take interest in someone plus the fact that she has an unobtainable status which is subconsciously attractive. t.I know this from experience both first hand and off-hand.
>>19639465>>19639472Don't forget literally being pushed into it by his boss and GaumaI'm sure whenever his mom decides to go on another date with Kamijo he's gonna go back to his "go to work" funk
>>19639487The manager yes, but Gauma wants them not to be together. That was clear from episode one, and then him separating them at the end of the most recent one. Making them "pretend" to be lovers was part of the master plan. Gauma is just not a very smart man. The manager is definitely up to something though.
>>19639562>but Gauma wants them not to be togetherHmm, I would say he is unaware of it cause he is kind of a retard but im sure he doesn't mind them together. You saw his reaction to Yume not showing up to the date. Dude clearly ships them.>and then him separating them at the end of the most recent oneI think you are reading too much into that. I would recommend you to take your fujo goggles off
>>19639562>The manager is definitely up to something thoughOther than not being sure about her marriage (Not a crime) there is nothing wrong with her
You people are being too hard on manager san. There are more chances of Chise turning evil than her
>>19639582Not him but it's not a fujo thing, and I noticed it too. Gauma thinks Yume is still the type to break promises, he doesn't want Yomogi tangled with her that way. Gauma did clearly separate them while they were having a moment. At least in my eyes. But if that was the intention, it will be made clear eventually.
>>19639829>Gauma did clearly separate themDid you saw his reaction? The dude was having fun with his friends. After all he didn't really enjoy the pool.>At least in my eyesAgain, take those goggles off
>>19639869>Did you saw his reaction?Yeah when he had his arm around Yomogi. There are no goggles on but you're own, Gauma warns Yomogi about Yume in the first episode, and he's still suspicious of her afterwards. When he told her to visit Yomogi when he was sick it was because he felt she owed him for making him get sick in the rain (which likely wasn't true) but that just goes to show how he still doesn't trust her. He doesn't want Yomogi to get tricked again.
So you saying he doesn't trust Yume and he doesn't want Yomogi to get tricked by her again, yet, you ignore him telling Yume to go see him AND to pretend to be a couple. Not only that, but he praised Yume for her plan. Nope sorry
Does anyone know the name of the song that plays here? I swear Dynazenon's OST is crazy good. I like how upbeat it is compared to Gridman.
This shit is all i wanted from Gridman. Basically Power Rangers the Anime. Was it that hard to come up with this? I don't care if Gridman is not a robot. Just make it so all the gang operates it. It's so much more fun this way.
>>19639899>Gauma is stupid>but at the same time is playing 4D chess specifically to get Yomogi to fuck YumeIf that's what's actually happening, that's just piss poor writing.
>>19637963so it's like power rangers situation but they actually made their own stuff
>>19639596That flashback was some psycho shit I bet the thing she showed him was a corpse.
>>19639940>Was it that hard to come up with this?I mean considering Sentai is 50 years old, and giant robot anime with teams is at least 50 years old too...not really...
>>19639940Superhuman samurai syber squad did it back in the 90s What kind of fucking retard spells cyber as syber anyways.
>>19637956It wasnt just Disclone it was also Microman Microchange (basically all the real objects) and a random ass generic robot who became shockwave, Omega Supreme and SkyLynx were from something, 2 Dorvack mechs got in (roadbuster and whirl) and a valkyrie from macross. I wish more random ass robots got in. Imagine if some classic super robos became transformers
>>19637646There was also 1 Gobot girl and Rikka's mom was a Luluco character with a g1 megatron outfit.
>>19637207>>19637244Yeah guys his stripes are fucking orange.
>>19639927It's not out yet. I'm looking forward for the gattai ost in this episode myself.
No episode preview?
>>19640351Anon learn to fucking read the OPJeez
>>19640485My bad, for some reason I read that as 5.
Do I have to watch Gridman before this or is it a standalone?
>>19640515It's standalone so far, but you should watch Gridman anyway because it's really great once it gets going. The connections so far are more thematic than story-based, with the whole idea that kaiju are representations of people dealing with personal trauma in ways that hurt the people around them. With Gridman it's a lot more personalized in that every kaiju is born out of a specific grudge the villain has, while with Dynazenon they've made the traumatized characters the heroes and put the focus on them learning to overcome their issues in the process of working together.
>>19640139>but at the same time is playing 4D chess specifically to get Yomogi to fuck YumeNo, he just doesn't give a fuck. He doesn't have any plan secret intentions.
>>19640271She looks and acts so normal as a MILF. Compared to her teenage self she has completely been domesticated.
>>19640560Thanks anon, I am waiting for more best girl
>>19640784Fuck off coomer
>>19640655She very obviously wants her husband to fuck off though.
>>19639465>cute>funny>pilots a giant robotWhat the fuck else are you looking for in a woman, anon?
>>19640958I have a prototype for my woman. Yume just doesn't meet the high standards
>>19640913Her husband died 5000 years ago.
>>19640560Only Yume seems traumatized the rest are just going through some rough shit
>>19640958Being a robot herself would be a big plus.
>>19641310>Only Yume seems traumatizedKoyomi is clearly a neet due to his trauma. Yomogi is the only one without any real baggage, which leads me to believe he's about to be hit with it, and hard.
>>19639465She's way less interesting than either Rikka or Akane.
>>19641310>>19641324Yomogi's parents got divorced when he was young, which a lot of kids blame themselves for when that happens, and now his mother's looking at remarrying. That's not as bad as Yume's situation by any means, but it's substantial, and we're shown he deals with it by throwing himself into his job to the point of ignoring his friends and any other interests. It's reinforced in dialogue and in his paycheck, which says he's pulling about 35 hours a week.
>>19641346Right but since dynazenon that's basically a non-issue for him now, while the others are still as bad as they were.
>>19641354It's more that it's been out of focus. Pretty much all the story focus has been on Yume finding out about her sister, since that's the big mystery, and to a lesser extent we're getting drip-fed the story of how Koyomi became a NEET.Still, the fact that Yume's finally investigating what actually happened with Kano, and the fact that she's spending time with the Dynazenon team instead of standing up guys to punish herself, means she's improving as well. So is Koyomi just by virtue of leaving his apartment and going outside on a regular basis. That's the whole point, that being with each other is making them better people.
>>19641377i think Koyomi got expelled, probably by taking the blame for the manager’s delinquency
>>19640276SSSS looks neater than CSSS
>>19641400Probably.The thing about them becoming better just by spending time with each other, without it even really being something they're trying to do for one another, is probably meant to be a very deliberate contrast to the philosophy that the Eugenicists are spouting, which is basically "you should completely free to always be yourself, regardless of whether what you want to do hurts other people or not". They're hypocrites about it, since they act as a group, but I imagine that's intentional.
>>19641400this is probably very likely, and he did it because he liked her, and then she moved on with life and forgot he existed, leading to his NEETdom and depression because he thought she would realize he cared about her enough to take the blame for something serious.
I feel this is a reference to whomever he's designed on.....or at least its a nice running gag. I'll be sad if he actually does die
>>19639940I live for those moments in mecha/ super robot shows, ever since I first saw voltron back in the 90s. A bunch of people focusing on courage through teamwork. Japan knew what the fuck was up. And I can't wait for the full team with chise as rare female extra hero status to combine
>>19641474feels like he probably will die eventually when something, probably an attack from the true villain, fatally wounds him. It would be a nice curveball to the audience who is getting used to this gag of him surviving,
Gauma dies!Chise takes over as the Dyna Diver driver!
>>19641573I'll drop the show
>>19641474Not everything is a reference you transfag schizo take your meds
>>19641419Cuperhuman Samurai Syber Squad?
>>19641346Yes but that's not trauma. We don't 100% know what happened to the others yet either. I'd say Gauma was traumatized being murdered and losing his princess though but since his issue isn't grounded like the others I didn't mention. Trauma doesn't just mean 'bad thing that happened' https://www.medicinenet.com/what_are_the_3_types_of_trauma/article.htmDivorce is hard for children but it's not really trauma.
>>19641628Finger went faster than the brainSCSS is probably already used by someone else
>>19641624First of all, calm the hell down. Seeing as how ssss.gridman had huge references from other super robot anime, ultraman, and transformers, specifically shattered glass, not to mention the American adaptation superhuman samurai syber squad, it stands to reason there are references in this series too. Stop being so dense.
Chise might not be technically a ghost like someone at the start blindly guessed, but she's certainly dead, and was brought back to life the same way Gauma was. The memorial they mentioned in the first episode was hers, and the armband covers the scars from when she killed herself. This would explain why the show so far refused to elaborate in any way on the situation and relationship of her and Koyomi and why we never saw anything of her life not related to Koyomi.Considering that she wears the same middle school uniform as the manager it's hard to imagine that that storyline is unrelated. I almost think that the manager could have bullied her into suicide since she used to act evil and manipulative, but maybe the show doesn't want to become that dark. Anyway in this case she's still 14 because she died at that age and so was revived.
>>19641811>but maybe the show doesn't want to become that darkYou watched Gridman right? The last 3 episodes are very dark, and peaked with the box cutter scene. Dynazenon is setting itself up to go above and beyond as far as I can tell. It's just holding back to when the twist hits, it packs a bunch.
If they aren't evil i hope they side with the cast for the final battle. Of course the question would be, who is the final villain. Probably whoever is bringing the Kaijus
>>19641823>The last 3 episodes are very dark, and peaked with the box cutter sceneOnly that, then is more like a shonen comedy.>Akane stabs Yuta and next episode everyone is like, fuck off already.Lame, if this was a more serious show ala Gundam everyone would have killed her
>>19641655You're getting too hung up on the dictionary definition of the word trauma. Most of the things that caused Takeshi and Akane to make kaiju were petty: in Takeshi's case it was almost always outlandishly petty. The point wasn't how harsh the situation really was or wasn't, the point was how it made them feel and how they reacted, which was with the desire for violence.
>>19641826>Lame, if this was a more serious show ala Gundam everyone would have killed herNevermind the fact that Akane was immortal so they couldn't, they were also programmed to not hate her no matter what so they would never have tried to kill her.Less speedwatching.
>>19641830>Nevermind the fact that Akane was immortal so they couldn'tThat's not true She can't kill herself but a gun would do just fine if someone else used it
>>19641835That's the dumbest headcanon I've ever read.
>>19641844Well to be fair yours is also a headcanon
>>19641846If a character doesn't die after falling off a building, the logical conclusion is that she can't be hurt, not just that she can't hurt herself. There is no reason to believe that. It's also why she isn't worried about walking around while her kaiju are running havoc. Being invulnerable and never changing is her whole deal, and also why for example the staff said that "she doesn't sweat" and she can eat like a big and not get fat.But you're probably the retard who refused to acknowledge that SSSS is a sequel of the live action so why should I waste my time?
>>19641858*eat like a pig
>>19641837Koyomi and Chise talk about it in the first episode.Also, I bet that the discussion Yomogi's friends had about the person who committed suicide after being teased will turn out to be about Chise instead of Yume's sister like people assumed.
>>19641858>she can eat like a big and not get fatShe looked fat tho
where does Dyna diver go if there's no water
>>19641957I think that we've seen in the third episode that it can even move on land.Well technically there was some water but it's a rice field, can't be deeper than 1 meter.
>>19641329>way less interesting than RikkaNigga, what? She's Rikka but with an actual personality.
I didn't realize the manager and Koyomi's old crush were the same person until I read this thread.
>>19642087Same. You can tell by her shitty dye job though.
>>19642127I know but I'm retarded and didn't notice they had the same hair.
>>19641828Then what's the fucking point of using words if you're not going to use them properly?
>>19642087>>19642133I don't blame you, for a moment I thought the girl from Koyomi's flashback was Yume's sister
>>19641828You're the type of person who stubs their toe and self diagnoses as depressed.
>>19641957it starts walking around using its legs
>>19641955Just her tits, the rest was pretty skinny
>>19641655>Yes but that's not trauma.Anything that is traumatic is trauma, tho
>>19642087I didn't realize it either until she showed up again in Yomogi's workplace
>>19642136We're not talking about clinical definitions, you spaz.
>Akane is how Amemiya wishes to look like as if he was a high school girlBased or cringe?
Looks like Yomogi will try to abuse Yume in this episode.
>>19643277It's easier to tell when you notice they both have the same mole under their eyebrow, but it took me a long while to figure it out too.
>>19643284That's what makes you fucking stupid. Youre like those people who think being sad makes you depressed. And youre wrong and fucking dumb.
>>19643920>Youre like those people who think being sad makes you depressed.Anon, did someone tell you that your own trauma wasn't valid?
>>19644025>validI hate zoimers
>>19643607Who in their right mind would prefer looking like Akane rather than Rikka?Anyway, two adult men having a conversation on how they wished they looked like if they were girls sounds incredibly gay.
>>19644097>Anyway, two adult men having a conversation on how they wished they looked like if they were girls sounds incredibly gay.You would be surprised with the Japanese (Or writers in general I guess). I remember a Mangaka talking about which make character he would fuck if he was a girl. Weird? yeah, Gay? maybe a little
>>19644032I'm 43 but ok
>>19644192that's even sadder
>>19642154that's actually a neat idea but I don't think it has ever been done in mecha, has it? I would love it if dynazenon would be the first show to do it, but maybe that's too goofy
>>19644282DYNADIVER! GROUND MODE!
>>19644282if dyna soldier striker combine being too top-heavy is a feature and not just a fault of the toy, then anything can be
>>19644384Speaking of which, nobody did webms yet, so:>>>/wsg/3920719>>>/wsg/3920720
>>19644282>I don't think it has ever been done in mechawatch more anime
>>19644282GoGoV did it sometimes.
>>19644617list 3 examples
>no OP tomorrow due to cliffhanger ending>new OP next weekwhat if
>>19644843What are you talking about. If you seriously think there will be a new opening in a 12 episodes show then you are delusional
Episode 6 of Gridman was the only one without a kaiju fight (Akane and Utsumi even joked about it), but the next episode of Dyna has a mecha animation director credited, so that shouldn't be the case.
>>19638287a hag is fine too
Just realized Yume and Hinata from RE:RISE share the same voice actor. How curious
This artist is pretty good
is yume gay like rikka from gridman
>>19645407No it's yaoi bait this time
>>19645407None were gay to begin with
>>19644097>Who in their right mind would prefer looking like Akane rather than Rikka?Clearly, the real life Akane does.
>>19644843Where did you hear this?
Would you like Gridman/Dynazenon more if it used 2D fights instead of 3D?
>>19645485It'd be nice but they're not Sunrise so I doubt they have the budget to do that
>>19645485Nope, because they just end up aping braves animation back in gridman. I know the og toys are made by takara, but still. Then again Graphinica didn't bring their A-game for Dynazenon unlike Gridman, so, I don't know.
>>19645497>I doubt they have the budget to do thatYou seriously think that? Mos of their shows are 2D and they are very high quality in that department. Animating a 2D robot for less than a minute doesn't sound too hard
>>19645517Except kill la kill and promare used 3D in their action sequence. Trigger isn't as great as you think, they're still a small studio at the end of the day.
>>19645539Promare yeah but KLK hardly used it. At the end of the day Trigger shows are mostly 2D. I guess they wanted to use 3D in the fights because they think it looks funny or something
>>19645497>>19645517>>19645587>I guess they wanted to use 3D in the fights because they think it looks funny or something>I doubt they have the budget to do that> Animating a 2D robot for less than a minute doesn't sound too hardLess budget problem and more time problem plus talent problem. Takes more lines to draw detailed mecha plus not enough talent going around with great mecha animators going up into higher positions like animation director or straight-up director. The only newer mecha animators I can think of are Gen Asano and Hiroki Arai. There's not enough to go around and Sunrise is trying to hold on to the ones left. I'm going to guess that's why Obari and his friends like Munetaka Abe worked on Gundam IBO and build shows.Also, Promare used CG because Imaishi wanted to. He moves the 3D camera a lot because 2D shots that move the camera are harder to animate so it was intentional plus the geometric flames were more feasible.
I want to fuck the loli
>>19645587They can't get away with that kind of animation on a giant robot.
Episode is a couple of hours away, final expectations? Besides more Yume and Yomogi staring contests of course
>>19645587Oh, you were talking about Kill la Kill.Well it's the same in theory, when Kill la kill uses CG it's when the camera moves a lot like in that hallway fight with Satsuki
>>19645603Funny how obari has been working on gundam for 10 years now. I guess it's the only 2D mecha series left.
>>19645603>I'm going to guess that's why Obari and his friends like Munetaka Abe worked on Gundam IBO and build shows.Those were terrible especially the Build series. Talking about the mecha fights of Build Divers and RE:RISE
>>19645614Some Koyomi and Chise lore finally, maybe.
>>19645619I sure hope he steps up his game cause the mecha action in the build diver series was pathetic. If yu want to do 2d mecha then do it right. Don't waste my fucking time on mediocrity.
>>19645628Sounds about right for Obari
>pop up parade statue for chise was just revealed>quite literally a pit fetish statueThey aren't even trying to hide it. Her armpits are more detailed than the rest of the figure. Jesus christ.
>>19645628He's past his prime
>>19645648>>19645656How big is this statue? Asking for a friend.
>>19645656I didn't realize at first but Chise dresses like a complete slut
He's back bois
>>19641933Isn't Chise in middle school? I know there's been a recent trend to have middle and high school years taken at the same campus in Japan, but by and large they tend to be separateUnless you're trying to imply she made an attempt at a school festival of all times
It was like she was looking at walking garbage.
What did the bad dye job manager show Koyomi?! Was it a corpse or just my imagination?!
>>19646783That's because she was looking through the fourth wall directly at you.
Here's your stupid fucking Transformers reference
MY SON IS BACK
>>19646791Do we know how much time has passed since Gridman? Im expecting a cool outfit change at least even if we don't get an age up.Also that was fucking unexpected. What a cliffhanger.
>maximum despair at episode 6>Kaiju Eugenicists getting some character progression as to why they fight>not even Gauma single-handing it with Dyna Rex could immediately solve the Kaiju issue>direct Gridman linkingFellas, I think this is the best episode yet>>19646798I hope he gets a new scarf, Anti deserves at least that
I feel so bad for Koyomi in this episode. And then they implied double cucking my heart cant take it. Its hard to emphasize for Yume when she became a bitch but it's understandable. At least she' not that fucked up manager what is her deal? What did she even show Koyomi?I wonder how Anti's status as an exkaiju will play into Gauma and the Eugenecists dynamics. And I wonder if the Eugenecists can instance dominate him? I love the idea that now the Eugenecists have to control monsters together, it was always sort of hinted with by multicolored kaiju that give the illusion of combined sentai mecha. And the hint that Dynazenon might be why Kaiju are appearing in the first place. Also Chise's kaiju grew today.
The kaiju this week is really cool too
>>19646804I hope he doesn't look like Hot Rod anymore and we have more people going crazy to figure what it is.I wonder how all the reused backgrounds from Gridman play into it now? And why Anti only appeared now?
>>19646811The amount of collateral damage was exponentially bigger this week.
>>19646796Hope he can combine with Dynazenon.
Does Grid Knight have a Fixer Beam?>>19646810>I wonder how Anti's status as an exkaiju will play into Gauma and the Eugenecists dynamics. And I wonder if the Eugenecists can instance dominate him?I'm thinking that this will be a final step of character development for Anti in regards to his "evolving" past being a Kaiju but I still want him to get brainwashed if only to then have the fight timed out due to his timerOr maybe accidentally messing up Sizumu's hypotheses on how the kaiju are made by him bringing up how he was made by Akane, only because they don't realize he's from a different world (that we know so far)>>19646815>I wonder how all the reused backgrounds from Gridman play into it now?Digital world, anon>And why Anti only appeared now?It's frankly a miracle anyone from SSSS.Gridman showed up before episode 10, I was expecting a last minute appearance from Gridman himself in the last episode as the only thing we would get
>>19646784I'm going to assume it was a bag full of (possibly yakuza) money because of pic related.
>>19646828Same, if only so we can have Full Powered and King stand next to each other unless they feel like dropping Sigma into the mix
Honestly Koyomi, just date a real villain, you don't need middle school crushes
>Mujina's thighs this episodeBlessed
>>19646834It seems the actual toy doesn't have a gimmick for combining with a Hyper Agent but we'll see.
>>19646866I'll take "have Dyna Soldier propped up as a gun" and "have Dyna Striker/Wing/Diver combined into a jet for Gridman to stand on", it's more likely they'll pull an episode 12 and have it revert into the old designAlso, can't wait for the usual japanese toy reviewers to try to cram the previous Gridman inside of Dynazenon once they get their hands on it
>>19646811Actually enjoyed this fight because Dynarex wasn't a win button again. I know it's probably due to the fact that their hearts weren't aligned but still.
>>19646866There's also never was a Deluxe Gridknight, so maybe Gridknight will get a toy that can combine. Then there's all the Chise foreshadowing.Maybe it can transform into a bazooka like the original show?
>>19646829>Digital world, anonThat doesnt answer shit.
>>19646829>Digital world, anonIt doesn't seemed to have a ceiling though.
>>19646906The end of SSSS.Gridman had the digital world fixed into a standard-looking Earth.
>>19646829>>19646903>>19646906>remember original Gridman had a long-running plot of the villain trying to break out in the real worldMaybe this is the real world and we're seeing Akane's inspiration for her digital world>>19646890>I know it's probably due to the fact that their hearts weren't aligned but stillI like that it was blatant this time, apart from episode 2's Dyna Soldier Wing and episode 3 (even with the Dyna Rex finale) it always felt like they haven't been on the same page since (especially when their individual issues were also becoming more and more prominent)I genuinely want them to heal themselves (Gauma included) and for the development resulting in Gauma not relying on Dyna Rex as a crutch but to instead be in full sync with the other pilots (Chise included)
>Kaiju is actually threatening and didnt get oneshot'dnice
>>19646829>>19646903>>19646906Wait till next week you fucking nerds
I like how the eugenecists were hiding in an old warehouse. Its just like one of my japanese tokusatsus.
>>19646915>Wait till next week you fucking nerdsNext week Dynazenon fights Gridknight.
>Yume going to get with Shizumu>Koyomi going to get with MujinaAs it should be.
I'm gonna take a bet that the audio drama is either going to be an extended drunken dinner with the manager and her husband, or Yume and Shizumu.
>>19646911>genuinely want them to heal themselves (Gauma included)It's funny how Mujina had an emotional breakthrough this episode that lead to her being in sync with her teammates. That's usually something reserved for heroes. I never thought of the Eugenecists as 'scarred souls' like the protagonists until now. I guess I should have since they fucking died. I wonder what happened to them.
>>19646925>Yomogi on track to get off the romance railroading as his resolutionHe should date the statue of liberty chick>>19646927>I wonder what happened to them.Maybe alienated for being able to control kaiju? That's why the cyber mummy was killed in the first place (apart from also trying to get with the princess)
>>19646932It's gonna be Chise making fun of Koyomi as they make their way to tell Gauma that Dyna Striker got stolen
>dragon style kaiju needs two people to control it>the dragon/lion style suits need two people in them (one for the back, one for the front)>dyna solider striker is top heavy>so like a real toy, it can't stand up without a standHmmmmmmmm
I dont know what this is but someone will probably appreciate it
>>19646946>It's just a prank bro!
>still no Chise development apart from "I can pilot now" and a lingering shot on her sleeveThey're really playing up the mystery rock schtick huh>>19646948>>19646951Very nice
>>19646952She's growing a kaiju
>>19646947>>dragon style kaiju needs two people to control it>>the dragon/lion style suits need two people in them (one for the back, one for the front)Here's your kaiju bro>>19646952>>19646953I swear to god the second we get Chise backstory and her coping mechanism that the rock spawns a kaiju and obliterates Koyomi's apartment
Fuck, I hate cliffhanger
>>19646948That's Donshine from Ultraman Geed. He's the hero of a TV show the protagonist likes and was inspired by.
>Yomogi finally getting off the Yume trainHopefully he stays off.
>>19646954You're joking but SSSS Gridman's design philosophy for Kaiju was to make it look like it was a man in a suit so that might have been the actual joke
I want to destroy the music club
>>19646969It's just a prank... jeez
>>19646969>Akane and Kano>shoulder length hairWhat if Kano resurrects and starts using kaiju
Reminder that "sequel" of Gridman took place in real world Tokyo, not Computer World.
>everyone is dealing with shit that makes them unable to fight>except Gauma
>>19646982I wonder if Sigma is canon to Gridman, ssss and dynazenon.
>>19646906>It doesn't seemed to have a ceiling though.>>19646910>The end of SSSS.Gridman had the digital world fixed into a standard-looking Earth.Akane Shinjo's world is a section of the digital world that had become walled off. This was a parallel to how Akane had closed herself to others. Gridman did not expand this world, but restored it that "slice" to the larger pie.
>>19646969>Yume's sister was killed by Akane's kaiju and everyone's memories got rewritten.TWEEST
>>19646996Hey, that mummy now can't just finish things off with Dyna Rex anymore
Can someone remind me how Anti became Gridknight? I actually had to look it up that he was the one that appeared at the end of this episode because it's been so long. I don't wan to go back and rewatch it.
>>19647018Got sick of Akane and Alexis fucking him over so he decided to join up with Gridman and Friends and hatched from his kaiju form like an egg
Will they get along?
>>19647018He's a Kaiju who's main ability is to copy Gridman's abilities. In the end he became a copy of Gridman himself.
>>19646910Let's play by the rule book.
>>19647018To beat Gridman, he needs to make sure Gridman doesn't get killed by kaijuTo fight kaiju, he needs to evolve past being a kaiju (that's why he had that episode of Rikka giving him a bath and those interactions with Calibur)You know, the usual Toku upgrade schlock
>>19647022It would be funny if he still doesn't use utensils for eating.
>>19647035I would imagine he tries to practice manners only to see Gauma shoving live crabs into his mouth and so he reverts to his base instincts
>>19647040Next episode so has them diving for crabs and bonding. Now Yomogi is even being NTR'd in the Gauma department.
What if the red eyes in the OP are Gridknight? I hope not.
>>19647051>Now Yomogi is even being NTR'd in the Gauma departmentAnd Dyna Soldier will be piloted by ChiseThere'll be nothing left for Yomoguilty and he'll be left to play fifth wheel for his mundane as hell friends whenever he doesn't have work>>19647057It'll be Chise's pebble-grown kaiju once she instance-dominates it hopefully
>>19646834Likely this instead
>>196467982 years. Gridman was in 2018, Dynazenon is in May, 2020.
>Yomogi's mom wants him to get a girlfriend>Won't shut up about Gauma even though Yume did come overJesus christ
But where's Gridman?
>>19647076I know Yomogi's workaholic mentality stems from trying to break off before his mom remarries, but I hope that want for independence actually is his resolution, finally getting away from people trying to get him to date someone>>19647081Playing ping pong with Alexis
Today Kaiju is based on Dodongo, a suit that requires 2 actors to control. They both can shoot electricity too.
New Hyper Agent Ruruko.
>>19647086Here' another pic
>>19647086Fellas? It goes deeper
>>19647092>mummy manIs that the same as the cyber mummy? I thought he was only featured in one episode.
>>19647099Nah, I'm just messing with you; it's just Ultraman's take on the resurrected mummy concept
>>19647084I want the moral to be that Yomogi realizes his crush is superficial and that he should live for himself and not be pressured into dating by his friends and his mom. And before someone bitches that "he's a high school teenager that wants to get his dick wet, that's how the world works!" that's exactly the problem.
>>19646952Chise doesn't need explicit development when the hints they've been dropping are about as subtle as a brick to the fucking face.>permanent sleeve>really pessimistic about bullies ever getting what's comingShe was bullied at school and probably has scars on her arm.>keeps trying to shove herself onto the team by playing backup for everyone>living with her cousin, they have at least one shared dead relative>keeps making pissy faces whenever Koyomi even looks at another womanAbandonment issues a mile wide. Koyomi is very likely the last family she has left at all, and she desperately wants to make herself indispensable to him (and the group at large)>picked up a kaiju core and it's showing visible growth nowIt's going to respond to her anxiety and start smashing shit and/or become the upgrade part for Dynazenon.
>>19647092>>19647099Nah that mummy is different, he looks like a man ape. I don't think that was even a human, some kind of mutant or ancient alien makes more sense.Later on there's an ancient alien mummy from the moon in Ultraman Dyna too.
>>19647132Dat sweet sweet giant shattered glass rodimus
Koyomi x Mujina coin on the rise.
>>19647151I'm convinced it's Koyomi's end game at this point.
>>19647151Cheap red wine in kobini I can understand, but what is with the glass lol
>>19647159To make her look classy compared to Koyomi's beer-chugging disheveled neet-ness
>>19647106I'm not sure if he's pressured to date aside from maybe the manager telling him to make his moves, and if anything his workaholicism seems more of a way to run away from his family situation if anything.
>>19647166yeah but where did she get it? Did she have it on her all the time?I laughed out loud when I first saw that
>>19647167His friends tease him too. The call back to the 1.1 drama in this episode, being case and point.
>>19647167I think his working nature foreshadows a capability to think for himself, while his current conflict revolves around the many innocuous comments compounding on that initial pushWe won't see any resolution until much later, but I reckon he might get to a point where he can decide he can choose to walk away from things (for better or for worse)
>Dynazenon finally jobbingIf we're really following a tokusatsu formula. You know that a jobbing MC means a new toys is about to coming
>>19647189choosing to run away from his family situation is kinda his problem though since he's busy occupying himself with work and yume
>>19647170They're at a decent establishment, it even has a ham>>19647189>>19647197Maybe Yomogi's gonna have multiple troubles and will require Chise to sub in for a few episodes (until whatever kaiju thing is happening with her happens)
>>19647262such a nice shot
I like the idea of anti probably teaching them teamwork and the value of experience
>>19645656This is getting hotglued by somebody very quickly.
>>19646948>>19646951>>19646964This is a major clue. This magazine from the first series (featuring masked ultraman) was an allusion to Gridman's primal form being a "mask" for his original form. In Geed, Belial crates a bomb that destroys the universe. All of the ultramen (aside Zero) use their combined powers to keep Earth from vanishing. The Earth that remains was kind of a mish-mash of different eras. I can't find examples atm but there was a mix of showa era and modern day. The TV's were CRTs but had a 16:9 aspect ratio. The Galaxy Market before it was destroyed was meant to be nostalgic, it had things from the 60s, 70s, 80s, etc
>>19647398Donshine himself is meant to be a stylized version of Belial. I assumed this character was going to be a clue to unraveling the mystery of Geed's world, but they never expanded on Donshine, and the elements of this nostalgic mish-mash Earth was never elaborated on. Donshine resembles Belial, so it seems improbable that this was an existing show in-universe. And it was Riku's favorite hero so I assumed Donshine was some kind of subconscious manifestation that bubbled up in that world, but who knows what they were thinking.
6.6 is titled "How to Call". Could be about anything.
Yeah, I'd say Dynazenon is about to get kino.
>>19647650Maybe it's the Kaiju Eugenicists trying to figure out how to use Dyna Striker
Well that was fast, poor Koyomi:https://www.pixiv.net/en/artworks/89680649
Don't ever tell a Neet "go crazy".
>>19647664what the fuck lmao
>Yomogi getting btfo by Shizumu so now is can finally stop chasing Yume and follow the true path to Gauma>Anti swoops in>Anti and Gauma will definitely become palsI'm worried about Yomogi bros, is he gonna make it?
