Re: The Official Identify this Show Thread

Too animated it’s more cartoon like starship troopers animation If that’s any help Like the Starship Troopers CGI show based on the Verhoeven movie, and not the 80's OVA from Sunrise? Moved around on skates? A sports theme? This sounds like the Heavy Gear animated series. https://www.youtube.com/wa...

Re: The Price of Smiles

Aesthetically, the theurgears from Soliel look like a weird mix of the seikijin from Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari and the Arm Slaves from Full Metal Panic! but maneuver like something out of Eureka Seven or Macross ... the enemy ones look like a crappy Graze knockoff. I feel that Yanase was going ...

I'm watching. A bit surprised that the incident with Joshua happened this early.

Re: SSSS.Gridman

Best of the 1-cour shows I've watched this season but, make no mistake, it does require some familiarity with the original Gridman to fully appreciate the show.

Also, the deep dive work done by @Mach_Dent as the show aired reveals another layer of substance to the proceedings.

Re: SSSS.Gridman

I was sold at the floppy shoulderpads & the kaiju conforming to RL rubber-suit design conventions. The integration of 3D cgi elements to 2D traditional animation was not bad, either. Various references to Tsuburaya's other rubber-suit shows was nice as well.

Also, volleyball girl had it coming.

They release a PV for Robot Girls Neo.
I feel rather ambivalent towards these new character designs & their means of attack. Not enthusiastic about the parts done in Flash, either.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

I generally liked how this episode was handled. It was basically a recap episode that actually advanced the plot, instead of going full-blown clip show. It's also nice for them to show that UNDERSTANDING can actually go both ways.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

Right now, what with him being a cyberstalker & all, I want to know if Tsukasa actually knows that the KO-1 in Riku's Force is his old clubmate Koichi or if he's just being really dense & clueless about that ("there's no way he could be MY Koichi, ha ha"). I want to see him going "Surely my old frie...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

Enjoyed the episode for the most part. The battlefield gave me SDGO flashbacks of that one co-op stage with the three shuttles. But--and here's the elephant in the room-- With how (literally) game-breaking the break decals are, there has been zero mention in the show of moderators or site admins ack...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

I felt that the drama caused by not!Stellar was rather forced this episode, but if it was a deliberate parody/indictment of her character in GSD then well-played, Sunrise. All the cameos & references aside, we also get some character development on Ayame. and then the episode where they trek the des...

Although yeah, you're also right about me not entirely buying it. Given how obsessive people are on the internet (and in general, remember that girl by the railway that then got badgered by all the train otaku?) I really do think he would have been found out way before now. Also, I think Fox Boy wo...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

Yes, I am being completely serious. But how can we know that magazine was released after the events? Does it actually say on the cover "Sharyar Reveals Himself?" www That's the gist, yes. A simple reason for why he may have acted that way comes to mind, but, given your completely serious dislike fo...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

Even though the animation quality was on the 'eh' side, I found the latest episode to be pretty solid, since it's emphasized that KO-1 prepared for this battle very thoroughly with the team. Even though the results seemed a bit lop-sided, it was a plausible victory for team BD. Perhaps it's also ind...

Welp, so much for the 'Nanami is secretly an expert Gunpla modeler' hypothesis with this episode. Didn't see that turn of events coming. And this week, Patrick's laying the moves on taisaaaa!!

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

This episode was budget economy-class production-wise, but hey, tied-up Ayame in time for Comiket. That said, the episode touches more on the building aspect, demonstrating how minuscule errors in assembling a 1/144 get magnified a lot when scaled up to 1/1, adversely affecting the gunpla's in-game ...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

That being said, I think they will just ignore it and ignore RL issue altogether. Yes. It's pretty much a non-issue, considering how there's no indication within the show of how long the players actually spend their time on GBN, and how people IN REAL LIFE do just about the same thing anyways, sitt...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

Latest episode's quite interesting in that it further explores GBN's game mechanics, such as player ranking & the consequences of being defeated. It also confirms that it hurts if you, as the pilot, are hit. Or not, it's just what the brain expects, I dunno. There's also something at the start which...
