Re: Big West and HG strike deal! Macross is free!

It takes a while to set up proper distribution channels, so I would assume the movie will end up on streaming and home video. That reminds me, what kind of Japanese anime movies got screening in the US these days? Any Gundam, Ghibli and Makoto Shinkai features? I wonder what plan does the Japanese ...

Re: Big West and HG strike deal! Macross is free!

Yeah, it was a bolt from the blue for everyone. Right now, with Robotech effectively dead and nothing on the horizon on HG's end... I would say the chances of things falling apart are near-zero. HG would be only too happy to abandon Robotech for the steadier income stream from global Macross distri...

Why didn't Zeon just clone Char?

So, why hadn't Zeon just clone Char instead of genetically-altering different people into an "avatar" of Char? They have the data on Char's genetics and his memories from the Psychoframe. They could had done the same thing as Glemmy with the Ple clones. I have a few explanations that I could think o...

Is the Nemo expensive to made?

I've this friend who insisted that the reason the Federation chose to upgrade the GM II into GM III instead of mass-producing the Nemo after Gryps War was because the later was too expensive; and unlike the AEUG who was sponsored by Anaheim, the EFF would had to buy these machines from Anaheim. What...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

I guess that pretty much everyone here have watched Venus War, so how do you guys think of it? After finishing Origin, I suddenly wanted to go back to Yasuhiko's other works. I like Giant Gorg, but find Crusher Joe a let down. I wonder if I should continue with Venus War?

Mechanicals stuffs in 80s American cartoons

Is there any mechanical designs from 80s syndicated animation shows like Thundercats and G.I Joes which you find particularly interesting or memorable?

Could anyone please explain to me different Transformer timeline?

Armada and the Micheal Bay movies are the only exposures I have to Transformers, so I couldn't make heads or tails of the various continuties. Could anyone please explain them to me? And while you are at it, what are the differences between American and Japanese series respectively?

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

Anyone here have watched Gonzo shows back in the early 2000s? They have got Gravion, and to a lesser extend, Burst Angels and Samurai 7. I always like Gonzo for their "trashiness"--they put so much effort in the animations, but a lot of times their stories and characters stuck in the 1980s and 90s O...

We've got that 00 stageplay, then the Code Geass movies, and now this. What is next? Gurenn Lagann? ...

Could anyone remember any instance of Dom-type mobile suits engaging in urban combat? I wonder not only how would the machines would manuever inside a city with their bulky size, but also how the city landscape affect the hoverjets? And speaking of which, how do you think urban infantry combat usual...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

I on the other hand like the mecha designs of Franxx quite a lot, perhaps because of my familiarity with Star Driver, whose mecha were designed by the same guy and I was always a fan of. The new show from Goro Taniguchi, Back Arrow has some mecha designs that remind me a lot of Franxx and Star Driv...

Anyone here have watched the two mecha spin-offs of Tenchi Muyo: War in Geminar and Dual! Parallel Lun-Lun Monogatari? From what little I have watched of Tenchi Muyo, it feels pretty boring and generic to me. Should I spend my time for these two spin-offs? Also, here is the news about a crowdfunding...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

When you think about it, Macross 7 was a pretty radical departure from what had come before... Macross II: Lovers Again followed Do You Remember Love? 's plot beats and themes pretty closely, while Macross Plus was The Un- Macross , having very few Macross tropes and themes apart from the crowbarre...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

It's kind of weird to think that Macross 7 was that big of a change in tone. I mean, it wasn't as much as when you finished Victory and moved to G. 7 felt like a natural evolution of the metaplotline from the original. Or maybe it was because Plus came out before 7 and was an instant favorite for al...
