Re: Kill La Kill Thread

2) it makes it harder to convince people to give the show a shot. The outfit just feeds into the general western perception of anime as something only fit for horny teens and creeps, which is a real shame, because aside from the outfit, there's a lot for the common person to like. These sorts of at...

Re: Senki Zesshou Symphogear

Shows how good a character Hibiki is and how you can empathize with her. It's pretty bad to see her suffering.

Show
But she'll go full Subaru and it will be awesome.

Re: Senki Zesshou Symphogear

Best show in the last two seasons.

Hibiki is one of the best MCs I've seen in a long time.

Re: Zeon an allegory for japan?

One of the genius things regarding the world-building made by the people involved in UC is how Zeon (particularly the original faction) represent BOTH major Axis powers: the Nazi/Prussian aesthetics are there, they are the most blatant and obvious things the viewer notices. However, when one makes r...

Re: Galaxy Kikotai: Majestic Prince

Only of the three that feels like a straight up mecha series. Most consistent of the three. The one that stays true to itself. So far, this is my favorite show of the season (besides Titan, of course). So the latest episode...was fantastic. Felt kinda slow, mostly because of the lack of action, but ...

Re: Sony Pictures registers Gundam movie domains

^OH BOY THE REACTION TO THIS IF ITS TRUE...IS GON BE GOOOOOOD. I see no problems in a high-budget live-action film, as long as the casting, story and, most importantly, the director, are chose/done well. Note: Forget about a live-action of UC/AC/FC/AG/CE/etc.. It'd only make it harder to make and mo...

DAT ANGELO.

Can't wait for more of his flamboyant, jerkish gentlemany. He truly was boss in the previous episode.

That would be better, yes. :D

But I take it F91 was some sort of failure or something? So I doubt it :(

Re: Gundam SEED HD Remaster airs Winter 2011

So there's a good chance of having something big for 2014. Before anyone says "The Origin", I seriously doubt it. That being said, its possible that we might be seeing another UC OVA. What source material it would be, or if it would be another OYW spinoff (pray God it isn't), isn't really possible ...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-9

I...actually liked the FX. Its hax and replaced the AGE-3 too soon, yes, but purely design, toy-POV wise, the FX is a good design.

There's just something about the Remaster...that just doesn't work. Wait, no, its not even a remaster: the drawings just look a bit more detailed in some frames and the CGI looks a little bit better. But really, that's it. Hiraiface is completely prevalent in it, moreso than in the original producti...

Oops! You're right, just checked that and its all Studio Khara. According to wiki, Gainax is just collaborating. It doesn't elaborate more on how, but its Studio Khara 100%.
