What's the most obscure /m/ show you've watched?
>>20856654FUCK OFF WITH THE REQUEST THREADS YOU CUNT!
>>20856663>stop talking about /m/ on /m/schizo take your meds
>>20856695cult classic for sure
>>20856695Good subs when?
It's not mainstream popular and normalfags won't ever appreciate it, but it's a loving tribute to Getter Robo and super robot shows with a lot of passion in it by a staff who made some real classics, I think you guys would like it. It has underrated hidden /m/ gem written all over it.
>>20856654For me, it's Code GOATass
>>20856654Its a pain in the ass to try to seach information about Kurogane Communication, it gets mixed with Linebarrels.
>>20856654Hey I've seen that
>>20856765I still remember the FUCKING VAULT when they were campaigning to save the show from getting canceled and the show would never air on tv again Turns out years later that was all BS and the series really did have a proper ending, and that the show was of Korean origin
>>20856778>LinebarrelsI liked it.
>>20856757i saw this when i was like 12, it was my first rape scene
>>20856746The HK subs are alright in my opinion, this will never get picked up by any groups.
>>20856678Talking about things usually involves starting a conversation. >TELL ME THINGIs not a conversation.
>>20856757This is the first time I've seen this art for NTHT.Why does it look so different, is it a manga or LN version?
>>20856942It's on the DVD
>>20856798Damn. I've always had a soft spot for that art style.
>>20856663Can we get this retard range banned or something? Every time I open up an interesting looking thread, it's one of the first posts.
>>20856798but is it comfy at least? comfy post-apocalyptic setting?
>>20856952>rec thread>interestingYou must be braindead.
>>20856695what is this?
>>20856986Some Christian thing, I think.
>>20856965Some of the early episodes maybe but that all goes away before the 2nd half.
>>20857048I started watching it anyway since the episodes are only 15 minutes. also>2020
>>20856654For me its brigadoon, Literally waited for midnight for this shit on WOWOW. Had to wait way later in my life to get it on subs.
>>20856654Argento soma>>20857949Giant naked loli scene was 10/10
>>20856654It dragged a bit and had one two many underwhelming monster of the week episodes, but overall I thought it was a worthwhile watch.It's one of those shows that came out after eva so it has that weird experimental approach to mecha, but what it ends up doing is so different from eva in many ways.If you ever have the time check it out.It also has some amazingly refreshing mecha deisgn.
>>20859671oh, that's the one where that neat off-center cockpit design came from right? honestly it's still a little confusing to me but maybe i'll pick up the show one day
>>20859683Yeah, those things are so cool.The show has a nice batch of starting episodes, but it drags a bit till the last 10 or so episodes.At least that's what I remember, its been a while.It had a great OP and ED though.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyfT6vv73Tkhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNuA255ELEg&t=1s
>>20856654I've never seen anybody talk about this before and for a few good reasons: The animation is complete shit even for the 70s and the story drags on for 40 episodes. Back in it's day it was always facing low ratings and cancellation, so I'm surprised it even lasted that many.
>>20860093>he watched the vhs tv recordings>he didn't buy the rare italian dvdsYour shit taste is entirely your fault.
>>20860135The dvds? With their garbage edits for content? Watch the laserdiscs or fuck off. Yes, I know it's grainy. Doesn't matter.
probably B-daman Bakugaiden if you're talking about things without english subs.
>>20860412I have a toy that shoots marbles like that, it's obviously a very cheap chink bootleg but I loved it
>>20860093>>20860135>>20860391>not watching the blu rays so you can see every fingerprint and pubic hair in HDI'm pretty sure I even saw a coffee stain at one point
>>20862870that release is an upscale, there is no bluray
Probably Starship Troopers.Everybody always talks about the movies.
Not really obscure if it's mostly the same dozen series getting posted every thread for over a decade.
>>20856904You laugh but HK subs did float around for a while and stuff from them became minor jokes in the community. I remember the literal translation of the side dish line in EOE being popular for a little while but that was years back
What was the point of this series?
>>20863131Video game promo that was scooped up and brought over during the "WE MUST RELEASE SUM ANIMU BUT WE DON'T WANT TO PAY MORE THAN A HAM SANDWICH" boom.
>>20861438Came here to say this.
>>20856654Neo Ranga. The false advertising was masterful.
>>20859683There's a good reason why the cockpits are off-center.
>>20856654Rideback. It was okay.
>>20863131>When aliens invade, the Earth's only effective defense is the giant robot Devadasy. Devadasy is piloted by male protagonist Kei and one of two female co-pilots, Misako and Naoki, and is powered by their "sexual energy"so darling in the franxx stole it
>>20856757huh I don't remember this having any sort of mecha, I only remember Lala-Ru getting raped or something. I should rewatch it.
What’s that one mecha show that the director refuses to release on anything past dvd, due to blu-ray fucking up thebcolors and stuff by “restoring” it or something, or was it a movie. It was in the desert and looked pretty, just need help remembering the name
>>20856654probably some random ROK shit?tbdesu Giant Robo live action seems pretty untouched despite being on hyperUHFone time I was visiting back home and my dad asked me about if I knew anything about "that Johnny Sokko show" he was catching on MeTV and I was like "yes. yes I do."Flaming Ears is amazingly obscure but that's more cyberhyperfuture than /m/ per seKishin Corps remains remarkably unknown despite having a literal Nazi robot with a literal SwasticannonHiwou is similarly "semi-historical and pretty fun but completely forgotten despite official R1 dvds"Metal Hurlant Chronicles is pretty rightfully forgotten
>>20856986Noble Beginning Tabernackler
>>20864442Five Star Stories?
>>20856654"obscure" and "hidden gem" should be auto-ban triggers at this point.
>>20856654I was one of the first anime I watched and I think it had a dub but I've never seen anyone talk about it.
>>20867711There's at least three other people on /m/ who've seen it.
>>20866369obscure =/= goodjust say you don't want to talk about /m/
>>20868115>obscure =/= goodWhat does that have to do with anything? Fuck off retard.
>>20871587your post implied obscure = hidden gem, which it absolutely does not.
>>20871941Acquire some reading comprehension.
>>20867711It has come up a few times in a certain /vg/ thread for a series utterly unrelated to mecha.
Not sure if this is obscure or even /m/, but probably DT Eightron. Don't remember much either, it's just nothing great.
>>20873745I love the OP of this show, I've played it over a thousand times but have yet to see it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ey5xizmbcNoThey use the drum pattern from we will rock you and it has this really unique rock style.Doesn't really sound like the standard j-pop OP or even J-rock ones.
Pretty good fight scenes and an overall decent show. I think it aired on jetix.
>>20876136is it communist megaman?
>>20859671It's way better than eva, at least in delivering the message anno tried to tell in 3.0+1.0.So does Ryu have any chance to be friends with Hattie without the weird obsession he had for her?
Z-Mind, maybe? I remember being suckered into buying it as a kid and then being like "Wow, it's average."
>>20876138Gook megaman actually.
>>20856654Banno Bunka Nekomusume.
>>20864186Seeing how Darling in the Franxx stole a powerup from a fucking 2000s Transformer series most people don't care about, I wouldn't put it past them honestly
>>20856663anime is so shit nowadays, i need help from anons to find not so shitty mechs
>>20876189He was behind bars (forgot why) so doubt they ever got to meet
>>20856654When I was a little kid my 90s turboweeb cousin showed me some OVA where ridiculously pointy mechs fought dragons and leonardo da vinci was hooked up to a life support machine on the moon or something insane like that. I'd say that's probably the most obscure /m/ thing I've ever seen because I've heard neither hide nor hair of it since.
>>20883073Sounds like you're misremembering Escaflowne to be honest.
>>20856654here some non-reddit answers from me, op:IzenborgAstrogangerShin Hakkenden
>>20883106I probably am. I was like 5.
>>20859671>It dragged a bit and had one two many underwhelming monster of the week episodes, but overall I thought it was a worthwhile watch.>It's one of those shows that came out after eva so it has that weird experimental approach to mecha, but what it ends up doing is so different from eva in many ways.>If you ever have the time check it out.>It also has some amazingly refreshing mecha deisgn.Though that ED sequence is just so hokey.
>>20885719Yeah, I wasn't throwing shade. Loads of shit I probably remember bits of pieces of and stapled together into something not quite accurate. It's quite a good show, by the way. Very stylish if nothing else.
Years ago we were using AniDB to spit out random things to watch and I landed on a 60's or 70's claymation about a mechanical mole. No subtitles, just a Niconico upload.
Does anyone know about a show where there's an episode in which there's a power outage and they have to use bikes to power up some kind of generator and get the robot going? I saw it as a kid and I thought it was Eva for years but after rewatching it there's no scene like that.
>>20885799Yeah that kind of looks a lot like my fuzzy memories but I've never seen that show, good call tho, the show looks good.
>>20885611nobody talks about it outside of " LOOK AT HIM RUN "
Probably the original IGPX shorts on toonami or something, never made it a point to watch the obscure shit.
>>20864436Hellywood was a giant mech, I believe. There was a scene with crew members preparing it to fly
Geisters Fraction of the Earth ORE WA erotic brown girl
>>20867711I remember watching it when it aired and thats... about it.
>>20892564Well hello there then.
>>20863131Japanese males begin their raping careers at 12
>>20856755Gr8 b8 m8
>>20856663Are you ok? Does someone need to call the authorities?
Mecha + LEGO = not a great show actually but kind of fun. The toys were awesome.
It was pretty crap from what little I watched of it, and I've never seen everyone ever mention it before
>>20857949My high school had both volumes of the manga. I loved it back in like 2005 when I read it, but I had no idea there was an animated series. I just finished the first episode. This is one of the most charming things I've seen in a while.
>>20856654Gakusaver, Next Senki ehrgeiz,Ordian, Tri-Zenon
>>20895477>GakusaverIt's awesome>ehrgeizFucking sucks.
>>20895148Same here, only way watched a few episodes, the video quality is pretty poor. Atleast the intro song and outro songs are good>>20895379Shame it's next to impossible to find episodes in good quality
>>20896805>Shame it's next to impossible to find episodes in good qualitynot a shame since it's garbage
>>20873745considering they need metal to summon him probably is.
This series, which has some oddly insane yet fun moments
>>20899613Argento Soma is not *that* obscure. Not here, at least.The only gripe I have with it is the lack of diversity on the alien designs, considering the main giant is made out of different parts stitched together. It could have been great seeing different invaders and making out which part is which in Frank. A good show, nevertheless.
>>20859671>it's one of those shows that came out after eva so it has that weird experimental approach to mechaIt's one of these shows that hurt its own potential due trying to fit in the Eva mold imo
>>20901728Gunparade orchestra, I only made it to episode 8 before dropping it
>>20900361Anon are you implying Xabungle is obscure
I just want more pro-wrestling and /m/echa stuff in an anime
Some kids show called Earth Granner. It was on YouTube for a while in 2020. I watched two episodes before getting bored. I've never seen it being mentioned anywhere again.
>>20903374it had a bit of a following around here as it airedonce the American shows up with the power of Cowboy and his cars are buffalo and alligator it picks up a bit
>>20856654Blue Submarine No. 6, which was pretty good in spite of the 2001-era CGI.Also gave me a fetish for fishwaifus
>>20885797That happens in one of the shitty SoL Eva manga. Ikari Raising Project, I think.
>>20885797I believe you could be talking about Dendoh, episode 14.They can't charge Dendoh the main way, so they ask the citicenz to help with every source of energy they have. One of my favorite episodes of the show, actually.
>>20904366I think they do it in Hiwou, too?
>>20904317Really? You know which chapter?
>>20905386Just checked. Chapter Eleven. They don't use the bikes to generate power for the robots though, just the base. I'm not even sure if this manga has the robots in it.
>>20906509Shit I think this was it, it's extremely familiar yet I don't recall ever reading that, must've been fucking ages ago. Thanks man.
>>20856836I miss this Hiraiface.
>>20876041The group, Dragon Ash, is a rap group that's hwy.
>>20882979I remember a post like yours as far back as the mid aughts. Some things just never change.
>>20906522No problem. I'd forgotten about it myself until your post reminded me of it.
>>20856757I remember starting a thread about this show here and we had a nice discussion about it. I love it even though it's pretty depressing
>>20867711I love this show. It is my show. Honoka is perfect.
>>20856769Why not Cock GayAss?
>>20856654I saw an episode of Fruity Robo when seeing family
>>20913263Was it the aids awareness episode?
>>20856757What show is this? It looks kind of familiar to me but I can’t place it
>>20915568Hint: It has time and directional pronouns.
>>20876041One of the best OPs I’ve ever seen, hot damn
>>20915575Oh fuck me, thanks, I knew I had seen it. That show was really damn good from what I recall, although I saw it probably 6 or 7 years ago and can only remember the very broad strokes. Might be worth a re-watch, maybe I could talk the gf into it…
>>20915673Forgot my pic :(
>>20856654Most mecha OVAs from the 1980shttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mecha_anime
>>20856654What was the name of that show where one of the MCs gets attacked by an attack helicopter and ends up hospitalized, while his little sister is kidnapped by a megacorp doing military mecha research?
>>20856654I want to say Viper's Creed, but I feel like there's more I've probably forgotten about.
>>20856654Probably Flag or Daimidaler.
>>20895148It's my favorite utter shit anime.
>>20859683>that's the one where that neat off-center cockpit design came from right?Krauts did that a lot on the experimental stages. Even tried it in the fabric-and-wood days as a way of getting the guns off the propeller line. >>20856654On the one hand, this outs me as a relentless pervert. On the other it's kind of adorable, like someone saw Escaflowne and said "Hold my fucking beer, I can do this shit with a happy ending AND still piss off the fans". Monster and mecha design is pretty good, characters are fun, not a lot of filler, and despite losing the movie it's still a good watch. got trannies innit, though. Sort of. It's complicated and involves Richard O'Brien merging his consciousness with Cher for some fucking reason.
>>20883073>>20883106That's either Escaflowne or Master of Mosquiton. >>20876485Good man. Second. As in, that was the second show I watched as an adult who knew what "mecha" were - fansubbed Macross, Ninja Scroll, Nuku Nuku, and then straight into F3. Which was a fucking RIDE.Also, until the re-release I'd put "Roujin Z" down as pretty goddamned obscure. Aired twice on the SF channel and then sold something like 5k copies in the States in the first three years of the release. Shame really, its a nice little cyberpunk story.
My first mecha probably. Watched it on foreign channel, antenna grandpa made could catch a lot of euro channels. Still no idea what the story was about but robots were cool and mc screamed at people a lot i liked that. May rewatch one day.
>>20918340Just how shit is it?
>>20918737It's a co-production with a Korean CG studio helmed by the guys responsible for Mars of Destruction. Despite being easily their most competent work, telling a rather generic sci-fi story about a boy coming of age to the backdrop of war between two morally gray factions, I'd give it a 4/10. With an OP from LEGOLGEL and an ED song from ani/m/e song legend Mizuki Nana you'll kind of look forward to at least three minutes of every episode.
I only ever got to see one or two episodes of Gattaiger and White Whale of Mu back in the days of pen-pals and VHS trading. But Gattaiger was super automobiles, and WWoM was genetically-engineered god-monsters and wooden spaceships. For shows with actual giant robots, I think Baratack was probably the most obscure one I ever saw.
>>20921036>genetically-engineered god-monsters and wooden spaceshipsSounds neat.
it wasn't subbed when i watched it so it's probably this.
>>20921668>genetically-engineered god-monsters and wooden spaceships >Sounds neat.Here you go.https://nyaa.si/view/1259376
>>20921668The white whale flies, fires lasers, has telepathy, and at least one pocket-dimension inside of it's body.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ccRTVHI9Q8&list=PLZcWUVgQtnvhxOtmTzu4UEJ5i3qEQalngI like how the subs gave the characters random new English names.
>>20903393Its weird how obscure this is desu.
probably dragon's heaven and god its fuckin kino
>>20954230dammit forgot the image
>>20954230Fuck off tourist.
I've got sol bianca on VHS. I've never seen it discussed so it's probably obscure.
>>20891258NTA but I actually knew what the show was prior to that gif lol, when I found out it came from there, I almost burst out laughing in amazement
>>20856654I see your "Kurogane communication" and I raise you "Mighty Space Miner"So damn obscure it was axed after 2 episodes
>>20867711It's on my to-watch list.It's been there for 15years at least.
>>20956891>Mighty Space Miner>I immediately want to play "delta-V Ring of Saturn"

>>20957489Nothing in this thread or the other two is particularly obscure.
>>20856746ADV dub was better. Shame Netflix had to butcher it, as per usual.
>>20957489> hurr durr u newfag because it wuz on teeveeEverything "aired" somewhere at some point, doesnt mean it cant become obscure even though it was on tv once like 20 years ago and thats it.
Anime adaptation of School Shock (Chu Feng Bee) manga.>literal Chinese cartoonit was terrible.
>>20961394>check MALwait so they made a new version? looks like only first 3 episodes have subs though.
>>20961372>I wasn't born when it was popular that means it obscure and it validates me
It's not the most obscure stuff but in decade spent here I've rarely heard about it.
>>20962729>decadeThat's the thing. Add another and it was still relevant.
>>20962768I've been here at 15years, I can't imagine it was that relevant or it would still get occasional thread.Here you go for something even more obscure. Schizo-Alien magical-girl in a futuristic world.
