God I hope so. I started going through the Brave series in order last year, from Exkaiser to GGG->Betterman->Final in the span of three-ish months. But I had no idea Might Gaine had unfinished subs until they ran out on me. I'm still mad.

>>21338986
Roommate actually got legit mad at me for "wasting hard drive space", despite it being my own hard drive, by downloading a show that we both like, though they like way more, cause it was on YouTube at the time. It's not up on YouTube any more, not on any streaming service either, and all torrents of it have been dead at 0 seeds for years now. I still have it but out of spite for them starting what has to be the stupidest fight I have ever been in I told them I deleted it months back "as they suggested". Fuck them.

"One of the themes of the Brave series is the interaction between a boy and a robot.
This is the first problem.
Do I let the original hero call the player's name to give the original protagonist more personality?
Do I input my own name and take the emotional involvement for the game?
Simply put, Dragon Quest? Final Fantasy? It's like that
As a result, "Serizawa Shunpei" was born! "

But the scans are quite rough, does anyone here has knowledge on cleaning scans?
>>
>>21345582
They can just make their own. Takara/Hasbro are cucks about their Haslab exclusivity so they probably wouldn't let others license the mold. Bandai owns the Brave characters though so they should be full within right to produce their own or license it out to Good Smile again. They've already done for TFZone Sonic Bomber's counterpart, and hopefully Dai Atlus' follows.

I gotta finish Exkaiser and then start Fighbird! Fighbird's still the only one with 0 episodes watched (by me!).
It's not that I even hate "alien cyborg has to blend in with a family", I think that's as endearing as this Vol2 cover looks. Just didn't get around to it, or Exkaiser's Christmas episode...
As for heroic themes, this one's still memorable for me.

According to Yuichiro Takeda, GaoGaiGar is intended to be the last ever Brave series.
https://pyroxenescanning.wordpress.com/2022/11/16/gaogaigar-side-story-king-j-der-the-burning-phoenix-part-02/
https://twitter.com/yuichiro_takeda/status/1575465435801079808
"You are not mistaken. The Photogrizer project did indeed exist, but GaoGaiGar's staff was told before the series began airing, that GaoGaiGar would be the final work in the franchise. For various reasons, that is the case."

Basically. That, and the demographic is straying from just children after Goldran (Dagwon seems to have swooned some girls, and GaoGaiGar is more for everyone, hence the attempt at bringing the show to America). As a result, noticeable viewership drop.

>>21358638
Say, is Shizuma supposed to be a love interest for Manami, the big sis of Shunpei from the first game and chief of VARS? Wonder if the manga clarifies their relationship better, cause I'm not gonna download the manga itself out of not wanting to bloat my gadgets' memory.

The main issue was Sunrise getting bought by Bandai around the mid 90s. Since Braves was a Takara Tomy sponsored show they certainly didn't want to promote the products of their rivals.

Now I wanna see a remake of both Brave Saga as one single game. Though I have a feeling they could give Manami a marked change by making her even more pampering to Shunpei despite not outing herself as a brocon, and probably test out the Cross Brave Armor System using Baan Gaan as the test subject. I'm still on the suspicion that they're withholding Baan Gaan until a Cross Frame Girl of Manami is revealed.

Rough translation: "In 1997, when GaoGaiGar, the King of Braves, was broadcasting, half a year ago.
Star Gao, which was devised as a power-up part for GaoGaiGar after being triggered by the space beetle that appears in Ultraman, went into storage because it was difficult to include in the toy schedule.
Stealth Gao 2, which added space equipment, took over the role, but originally, it was supposed to be a dragon-type independent flying mecha carrying various tools of the King of Braves, completing an all-around space destruction god...!
This is a picture I drew while remembering the idea sketch at the time, which is also known as Genesic.
It's called Blockade Star GaoGaiGar!!
It is the strongest Gao machine that exists only in the sealed world line!"

Why are the The Gattai figures even that expensive? Just because they're the "SOC equivalents?" The Da-Garn one doesn't even have a waist swivel even though they still bothered to give you "proportion parts". Should have done something like the Gravion Moderoid kit where the swappable parts give the figure extra articulation. And I don't buy the excuse that it's because of the anime accurate look - even the SMP Draias has waist articulation despite the potentially hindering part of the animation design being his actual stomach and codpiece.

Never watched Goldran before and I decided to try a couple of episodes. I was initially taken aback by the art style and the wacky presentation, but the mecha designs kept me interested and the cast's antics won me over. Walter is actually a very likable villain if there is even such a thing. This is a very good show.

Finished building the RG Gaogaigar and I have to say the kit could have been so much better if they designed the helmet and the lion's mane differently. Basically every other version of Gaogaigar, both model kit and full figure, has the mask be an inseparable part of the helmet which is much easier to deal with. In this kit the mask is only retained by the red bits on the sides of the helmet that themselves like to come off too easily. Then they wanted you to rely on Gaigar's nose and chin to provide additional grip while installing the mask but it doesn't actually work like how they envisioned it, because Gaigar can't really look up after he has the Gaogaigar helmet on, and you still have to fight with the articulated "spine" gimmick. The lion's mane uses a mechanism similar to the Pose+ figure but has nowhere near the same flexibility and strength or even practicality, and you eventually have to cheat it by changing the position and movement range of the holding armature, which defeats the whole point of designing the mane mechanism to transform like how it does in the show.

Also they really should stop using those prefab MG fingers for articulated hands. They come off the ball sockets too easily and moving the thumb too much will cause the entire hand to fall apart.

Sorry for blogposting but I really have a love-hate relationship with the kit. End result looks awesome and it can achieve excellent poses but doing anything with it really requires patience.

I mean, I blogposted before and broke the hand/wrist during building and fixing it later.
>>
>>21410045
Eventually I just used silicone on the fingers because I realized the cause of the problem. The knuckle joints are way too tight and moving them often exerts too much force for the ball joint and socket at the root to withstand. Other designers of toys like the 3P MP Transformers etc would prevent the problem by at least giving the ball sockets a retaining cover or designing the palm to not be composed of too many separate pieces like with this kit. It's obvious the designers themselves have low confidence in the MG hands because they made sure to include the Hell and Heaven fixed pose fists.

Been looking at the SMP and GSC options of Braves kits and figures lately, and I noticed that it's becoming common for Bandai and GSC to give "proportion parts" for the final combined forms. This way the bots can fully transform and combine while still giving you the option to make them look super screen accurate by replacing a few parts, most often the heads, hands, thighs and calves. A good example of this would be the Great Fighbird SMP which looks okay stock but becomes much more awesome with the replacement parts. I really hope Bandai Shokugan continue their Braves trend and eventually have an SMP J-Decker. The GSC The Gattai Might Gaine is also shaping up like it's going to be a very nice take.

>>21412658
Yeah they should have just given the RG GGG a bunch of posed hands. Even Moshow does that with their not-Gundam bots and those are gigantic 1/72 action figures with metal frames so they have a lot more wiggle room for engineering, and they still went the fixed hands route. The couple I owned came with like 14 hands each.
>>
>>21412488
I'm currently watching Goldran for the first time and Dran just became a papa LMAO this show is funny
>>
>>21412690
I love the proportion parts, but I think Dagwon got shafted in that department really bad. It really needed a longer torso and smaller feet, ideally with bigger thighs like Great Fighbird has. Hoping Might Kaiser turns out good in that regard
>>
>>21412488
>>21412690
Do you think we'll ever get a Captain Shark + Advenger as an SMP
>>
>>21412958
Not unless they make a Silvarion/God Silvarion, cause Bandai only really plans to make the primary mecha and their rivals (GaoGaiGar is a special case, so that is always an exception to the rule).

Well, from that angle he pretty much looks exactly like his animation design, but I agree he will probably look ridiculous in most other poses. These "design bible" pics almost always look like they were low angle shots which make the lower limbs give off the impression of being longer and larger than they should be. Another variant of Brave perspective lmao.

>>21413081
Looks pretty good. Not sure if it's because it's all grey but the torso looks like it's much beefier than the onscreen look, I thought I was looking at King J-Der with backpack wings.

That's why I said it will look ridiculous in most other poses. I mentioned the low angle shots of the animation design guides because they can be misleading to kit designers. Those were drawn that way to make the mecha look more imposing, just like how there were tons of similar shots in the show's scenes, and the kit designers wanted to recreate that feel in a 3d object but went overboard in exaggerating the lower limbs.

Anyone else using the GGG BD release as an excuse to watch the dub? Before now I've only watched the odd one or two episodes in full and clips of it on youtube, but it's actually not that bad. Like it's nowhere close to the Japanese dub, but for what it is it's perfectly alright. The only voice choices that I dislike are the Narrator's and Hyoryu/Enryu/Choryujin's (Primarily the voice modulation they've got going on for them), everyone else is on-point. Like shit I never thought Kappa Mikey would make for a good Gai.

It's also neat to see how the dub developed over time. You get stuff like them starting with "FINAL FUSION AUTHORIZED" but then transitioning back to "FINAL FUSION APPROVED" a few episodes later, and Jamie McGonnigal has a pretty neat take on Penchinon's laugh for the earlier episodes before reverting to a more JP-like BREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. Overall I'm kinda upset that it was left half finished. I would've liked how they handled Arm and the other Primevals.

Subs for Exkaiser I found had different groups handle different batches of episodes. So depending on where you're at in the series it's either King Roader or Loader. I prefer Loader but is there a wider consensus on which is more correct?

I'll never forgive them for not finishing the GGG dub because they've had a golden opportunity with Dan Green of Yu-Gi-Oh fame as Taiga. Just imagining how good it would've been to hear him for the rest of the series and final. I feel that if it had been fully dubbed, it might've been giving the kind of following G- Gundam English dub had.

So no torso articulation again for all three of them like the Da-Garn stuff?
>>
>>21432298
They were showing off the articulation around the 49:50 mark >>21431182

>>21432327
So yes, no torso and waist articulation because they still relied on making the chest pieces connect to the hip armor for stability.

I was looking on the Braves wiki but they don't seem to have any pages for the Division ships. Does anyone have the eyecatches for the Division Ships Izanagi, Amaterasu or Susanoh? If not I'll go looking through the episodes later this week and will post them.

Weeaboo Shogun is a fansubber who does a few very specific shows, namely the Rescue Police toku shows and the Shinkalion super robot shows. He (or she I have no idea) is known to have a very good grasp of Japanese and railway terminology but seems too social to have the full on railfan tism.

Something I've been wondering about is what's the point of Amaterasu since they already have Izanagi to launch the Mobile Unit. Is Amaterasu just the resupply / repair ship? But if that's the case why bring it into the front lines of the battle, I don't think it showed any guns except for having the Mobile units act as turrets on top.

There's the CMS DX Genesic, however that one
is extremely expensive and rare and the Amakuni Kizin doesn't transform and combine.

I see, thanks. The SMP it is then, because from the reviews I've seen it looks appropriately small next to the SMP King J-Der.

In the battle against the Primevals that merge with battleship,s after GGG repels them from the orbit base Taiga orders an emergency launch and to use the Amaterasu "as a fortress" for the Mobile Unit.
Perhaps Amaterasu's job is to provide a mobile and durable platform to move the Mobile Unit without having to burn the propulsion in their SP packs. Meanwhile Izanagi appears to be a redundancy for both Amaterasu and Susanoh, where it can also transport Braves but also has mirror weapons.
I think it's odd Amaterasu doesn't have weapons though. Although the eyecatch >>21435725 posted says it has a Defender SSM weapon system, but I don't know what that is and I don't recall any episode with Amaterasu firing its own weapons, only Susanoh and Izanagi.

That whole situation is very stupid in retrospect. Dubbing Gaogaigar with zero marketing, zero merchandising push, and YEARS after it finished airing make absolutely no sense to me. I'm surprised that they didn't consider pitching the show to Toonami considering they were riding the Gundam wave. The guy responsible for Toonami was also a huge mecha fan too, and seeing how GGG's action is one of the best, it's hard to see that he'd ever hate it.

Could've been the moment that broke Yuusha series into the west.
>>
>>21445586
Oh I forgot, they were dubbing direct to DVD????

Like who the fuck does that, and then gets surprised when their dvd sales flop?? No shit that it was going to fail.
>>
>>21445586
>>21445599
I remember in other threads long ago people speculating that the nudity in GGG being a reason why Toonami never got it. But they aired the hot spring episode of Tenchi Muyo with bikinis edited into it, I believe they could have done something similar there with what little nudity there is.

I imagine the real reason was either whoever was in charge of that at CN/Toonami was just never made aware of the show or when asked Sunrise told them no for whatever reason.
>>
>>21445599
Dubbing is usually always a good option unless you're really cheap because not everyone likes subs, despite what most of the purists here swear by.
>>
>>21446676
Dubbing is usually always a good option when you get your hands on a show for kids.
>>
>>21446676
I'm not talking about dub vs. sub though. I'm talking about the fact that Media Blasters decided to just dub direct to DVD with zero exposure. Doing it this way is asking for your product to fail in the west, because now you put a shit ton of emphasis on DVD sales instead of supplanting that with ratings during air time.

Couple that with the fact that because it was dubbed so late, that you couldn't re-use Bandai's molds for toys and merchandise, so now you lost out on extra revenue. This is especially weird in retrospect when you look at how much product GGG sells even after its air time. It's already had a Minipla, SOC, various premium mecha figures, and so on.
>>
>>21446934
I doubt they deliberately snubbed tv in favor of direct to DVD by choice. There was no place for it on tv at that point and there was never gonna be a toy deal either. It was put out as a direct to DVD anime with no further revenue because that was all they'd be able to get.

iirc, it was released after Toonami was no longer around so the idea of putting GGG on it wasn't an option. I remember buying the DVDs back when they were new and also remember that they were also doing tin sets to the Voltron series and because the interest was lower, Voltron and the sub release of GoLion became the priority and GGG dub was canceled only for them to be released in a box set with the second half being sub only.

I have no proof that Voltron was the reason why GGG got canned in the west, but I always felt it lined up which is why they never licensed Final.

I don't think they deliberately did it, but I don't think they negotiated well or had as solid of a business plan. It doesn't make ANY sense to go do direct to DVD with literally zero marketing. Might as well go send that show to die and waste all your money for your efforts.

>There was no place for it on tv at that point
In that same timeframe across multiple networks we had:
- Medabots
- Transformers RID/Armada
- Zoids
etc.

I find it especially hard to believe that Yuusha/GaoGaiGar wouldn't meet or eclipse expectations of these shows.

Yuusha was a dead franchise by then and Hasbro wouldn't have wanted it competing with Transformers and probably would have blocked toy releases. And GGG was probably considered too violent for the kids at the time as well given how Gai gets the shit pounded out of him several times. They could have butchered it, but it likely just wasn't seen as worth the trouble. It really would have likely just gotten lost in the shuffle with kids and would not have been a sucessful franchise take off here. And even if it did, the franchise was long over and had no future planned so that's another negative point on trying to seriously market it vs making it another disposable anime in the anime boom at the time.
>>
Your timeline is off. The GGG dub came out in 2006, when Toonami, Kids WB and Fox were in their death throes and would be cancelled in the next year or so and 8 years after the show aired in Japan and the toyline production stopped in favor of starting up Transformers again. It was way too late to try and make a mech vehicle for kids at that point. Anime for kids in general was basically dying out by then.
>>
>>21451278
For reference by 2006 Toonami had moved to a Saturday night only teen oriented block mostly playing old favorites and would stop completely in 2008 until it's revival years later again as a teen/adult nighttime block. It never had a chance on kids oriented weekday Toonami. That was dead before Media Blasters got the license.

To add onto what he said, the 1997-era Takara DX figures would never hold up in the 2006 US toy market. For reference, it was the 2nd year that Transformers Cybertron was on the market and a year after that you'd have not just the first Bayformers to compete with in terms of toys but also the debut of Bakugan. Unless entirely brand new molds were made no kid was going to buy a Gaogaigar whose only decent articulation was in the elbows.
>>
>>21451278
>>21451283
OG Toonami had a weird relationship with mecha anime. It aired episodes of series like Nadesico and Dai-Guard for events, but never the full shows. Who knows if they had any interest in GGG? Also the big USA anime crash was right around the corner at that time. Trying to do a GGG dub during that period was, in hindsight, not a very good idea for a lot of reasons.
