Re: RPG Report?

And here we are again, with the fourth session of the game. I was actually kind of eager to get this one posted as soon as possible because that session was where ZOINKS Got Real™, but once again laziness got the better of me. But enough chatter, here we go: --- Continuing from the last session, Eri...

Re: Tokusatsu

As I understand, the producers of Agito wanted to make the story a direct sequel to Kuuga at first, but didn't want to alienate new viewers so they compromised by saying "It's a sequel if you want it to be, but if you don't that's perfectly fine too." There have been little nods in other media; for ...

Re: Tokusatsu

I admit I'm mildly disappointed at the slow pace of the Kuuga manga because I hear it goes to some interesting places.
SpoilerShow
Most prominently it starts crossing over with Agito, with Shoichi's sister Yukina actually showing up alive, and even turning into a female Agito.

Re: Tokusatsu

I dunno, I think the contrast between Misora being this lazy, grumpy brat and a peppy Internet idol is pretty funny. Especially in the episode where Sento forced her to go online to help get information and she just fell asleep in the middle of her intro. In a related note, the Kamen Rider Kuuga and...

Re: Tokusatsu

I'm quite enjoying Build right now. The cast is interesting and the whole mystery behind Pandora's Box, the Skywalls, and the Smash are really kicking things into high gear. My biggest complaint at the moment is that Ryuga seems to be suffering some amnesia, since he already learned "Don't be a self...

Re: RPG Report?

If by "join" you mean you're interested in reading it, that's great. But if you mean you want to be part of the game...well, you can't. This isn't something we're doing online; if it was I'd just have posted links to VODs or audio recordings of the sessions. This game is being held at my brother's h...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

Buster's actually more interesting than you might think, especially if you played the SEED Vs. games since its playstyle is completely different. Its primary weapon is the combined beam sniper rifle, while it has a weapon-swapping function like the Hildolfr for its sub-weapon. The options for this i...

Re: Gundam 0083 Rebellion manga

Yes. Reading something quite literally gave you cancer. I'm glad that the short stint of a minor mecha had that profound of an impact on your life. C'mon Deacon, didn't you know that bad cartoon robot designs can give you cancer? It's just like how bad sequels/adaptations can reach back in time and...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

The Buster Gundam and Alvaaron are being added to the Japanese version of the game in mid-October. The Buster seems to play exactly like it does in Maxi Boost ON, while the Alvaaron seems fairly orthodox except for the fact that it can summon the Alvatore for a brief period of time.

Re: Mobile Suit Moon Gundam Manga

At least in one of the CCA novels, it's said that Amuro only had the Nu Gundam made because the Federation refused to let him take the Zeta out of the mothballs because they didn't trust him with it (mainly thanks to the biosensor). I'm pretty sure that's held true over the years; in fact I think th...

Re: Dijeh ground only MS?

All I can say is, in video games that actually keep track of that sort of thing (like G Generation) the Dijeh has always been ground only.

Re: Knight's & Magic

Henyo: I'm mostly okay with Isekai stories where the character grows and adapts to the new setting (as long as it doesn't get too absurd). The main issue is when a character appears in a new world and somehow has the exact skill set and powers needed to become a god among men. This is especially jar...

Re: Knight's & Magic

/Raised Eyebrow/ Oh? I kind of liked that part. If they do the Second Season I want this Age of Airships to be the center of it. I think MS's attitude has more to do with the Vyver (which was basically a battleship in dragon form) getting destroyed than the whole "Age of Airships" thing from the en...

Re: Knight's & Magic

Well, the series is over. My thoughts...yeah, sorry but I just didn't care for it. There were way too many problems and not enough good stuff to balance it out. By the end, the Char's Counterattack reference/homage made me feel like facepalming rather than celebrating. Here's the breakdown of my iss...

The original anime is getting turned into a "director's cut" movie trilogy in anticipation of IV.

Re: Knight's & Magic

So is this just a case where the adaptation is bad? Because people seem really fond of this series, but the anime is just making so many missteps that it's very hard to enjoy.

Wow, this episode kind of made me hate Ernie. I mean, his obsession with robots was already pretty bad, but this week he acted like he cares more about machines than human beings.

Re: RPG Report?

What we're using is Big Eyes Small Mouth (aka BESM), a system designed to (in theory) let you recreate basically any kind of anime. In practice, though, there's a lot of potential for abuse and game-breaking, and it often comes down to house rules to patch the holes left behind by the creators and p...
