Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

Gun x Sword was...okay. I felt like it cribbed too much stuff from other works to let any of its original ideas shine through. Van in general was a pretty one note and unlikable protagonist and his supporting cast aside from the El Dorado 5 were forgettable to downright annoying (Joshua). The show a...

Re: Grendizer: Where does it stand in terms of popularity among the Mecha fandom?

Did you really have to copy the whole "Reception" section from Wikipedia? Regardless of its success upon airing, there's no doubt that Grendizer has generally always been way more popular in the Middle East and Europe compared to Japan. Mazinger (and by extension Great Mazinger) regularly get new ma...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Personally, I haven't seen anyone suggest that Kawamori needs to step back from the franchise. There was a bit of that going around in the early days of Frontier and just after the TV show ended. Mostly people saying Kawamori should just design the transforming planes and leave the story and charac...

Re: Do you guys think we will see more sequels of old mecha series?

The Gaiking remake is pretty great. Original Gaiking is borderline unwatchable. Koutetsushin Jeeg is nice and short. Doesn't overstay its welcome and the original cast works nicely with the new cast. The only problem is that it's not a real sequel to the 1975 show/manga because it makes alot of over...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Re:RISE Thread Mk I

the game system itself isn't unreasonable in views of MMO players. Alot of your arguments rely on assumptions about information we either simply do not know or is contradicted by the show. For starters, we don't know the pay model of the game. We can be sure that players are paying money to buy/ren...

Seto hates the Build series more for the commercialization aspect whereas I have problems with the actual writing of these shows.

Looking back at the sheer number of opinion that Kawamori should just make a pure idol Macross next, maybe that is the case?
Isn't AKB0048 already just that?

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I don't think Kawamori is so hamstrung by Macross canon that he would need to make an AU to explore other ideas. Pretty sure Aquarion is his outlet for that. As for romance, it's a problem less specific to Macross and more of a problem with the whole genre really. Alot of shows struggle to make even...

Re: Gundam 40th Anniversary Special Movie

not everybody reads comics/manga like you probably do. MANY people who are anime fans have zero interest in manga/comics. and some people prefer their anime's (espcially gundam) dubbed in english and not subbed. in the context of gundam, i think the mangas and novels are all great source material f...

Re: What is the future of Gundam??

It would still be a blatant commercial so I don't know if you would consider it an improvement or not, but I remember that the older Plawres Sanshiro (yup, there's such show before Angelic Layer) add a serious twist with people start to realize the potential of such battle toys and villains want to...

Maybe Blue Gender (1999)? The art style in that one is somewhat less cartoony than the other examples.

Re: The Official Identify this Show Thread

Mecha suits on rollerblades brings to mind the following:
Votoms (1983)
Nadesico (1997)
Eureka 7 (2005)
Code Geas (2006)

But otherwise we'd need more details.

Just watched the first episode today and it's already off to a bad start by doubling down on the "VR MMO written by people who don't understand how MMOs work" problem that the first GBD had. Why does the main character have a framed photo of what is basically an in-game screenshot? How does Kazami g...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Odd. Where'd this misinformation about Gamlin's species come from? It's been on that wiki page since the first revision in 2013 and NOBODY ever challenged the claim? Nothing in M7 ever remotely implied that Gamlin was Zentradi in any way, especially since Macross in the 90's had already settled on Z...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I always got the impression that the people involved in making Macross 30 like Isamu ALOT. For some reason in Macross 30 Isamu gets a YF-29 as part of the plot and can switch to it from his YF-19 if you choose him as a wingman, but Ozama doesn't get that option with his YF-29 (before NG+ at least) d...

I'm drawing a blank on UniverseGangster's but the "hair clip to tell the girl apart from the boy twin" sounds exactly like Linebarrels though the twins don't have white hair.
