This is one of the most interesting designs that's come out of this wretched franchise in its entire existence. For once, it looks like an actual machine instead of a human being wearing a costume.

I'd love to see it get the Fifty Shades treatment and just get adapted as its own original work. I can't say much for the writing itself but the aesthetic of the accompanying art is pretty cool--those mechs scratch my Maschinen Krieger itch a little bit, and I'd probably sit through a subpar show if they were animated well.
>>
>>20046600
I think people would've been fine with this if it wasn't connected to Gundam, even if it screams tryhard mature.
>>
>>20047723
the Gundam and the Zaku aren’t necessarily supposed to be machines in the most strict sense.
also Wilbur looks kind of like shit

What do you mean "too"? That implies she hated her in the original, and I'm not even sure she ever interacted meaningfully with Sayla in the original.

I love the aesthetics of For the Barrel so much.
It really is a window into that Y2K era futurism style that popped up right before everything went fully digital minimalist.
You get this nice blend of what is still analog technology, but with the sleekness, stylish, ergonomic and utilitarian aesthetic design that was becoming popular at the time.
It's very similar to Zone of the Enders in that way. I also see the same thing from Ikuto Yamashita's designs, especially in that era and Macross Frontier to an extent.
>>
>>20046600
Absolutely; I love the mechanical and character designs and am glad the light novel chapters are finally getting fan translated.

unfortunately it's incredibly scarce.
That cover I posted is from a doujin he worked on called Gundam Millennium or Gundam Generation.
I've tried finding scans for it before but I can't remember if anything turned up.
Yamashita also did redesigns for the Sazabi and Nu.
But aside from that nothing else I can find.

>>20079919
I think I might've been in that thread.
That would've been years ago though.
I just remember posting >>20079924
because I was seeing a connection between Yamashita's designs and the ftb ones.
They're a lot more robotic and industrial in their approach and rather than just looking like completely humanoid figures they look like technology that just happened to develop into a somewhat humanoid shape..
>>
>>20079936
Honestly I think I agree too, same for G-Reco.
I remember seeing those magazine scans and thinking it was gonna be a completely original project, I'm still kinda sad about how it got turned into a Gundam series.

What does "For the Barrel" mean?
The closest I can think of is that barrel is some slang for colony since they're shaped like barrels and they're fighting for the colonies.

Like a lot of For the Barrel, this would be fine if it weren't part of a 0079 remake. Like this is a godawful Char redesign, but it's a fine design on its own.

I'm mortified thinking of what the Zabi redesigns must look like

These designs are all over the goddamn place

As original characters they're fine, but it's the fact that they're /extreme/ redesigns of already existing IP characters is what boggles me

(Lalah's looks fine though, cause she still looks like herself)
>>
>>20098259
it's fine, origin's loony toons-ass animation ruined the original designs for me anyways
>>
>>20097086
Because it looks nothing like the original. It's fine to deviate and have your own take, but only up to a certain point, otherwise you might as well be your own thing.
>>
>>20098317
>Because it looks nothing like the original
That's explicitly the point here though.
It's a complete remake, not the kind of remake that simply just modernizes the production values or tweaks some minor details.
It's a complete kind of remake or rather a reimagining.
Similar to how Thunderbolt or Origin are.

Personally I don't mind Yas' art style and the animation as much in The Origin. I mainly grew up with cartoons before getting into anime in the mid-2000s, so it's very nostalgic for me in a way with the tooniness.

I understand though, not everyone likes their anime "cartoony" with wacky scenes/expressions/animation. I personally just like the art style 'cause it brings me back to my roots as a young kid.

Pic related, I loved how exaggerated Dozle was in his face and body language.
