Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

But we do know, since they name drop a lot of Gundam characters in Build Fighters. I think that people like Ral can fall back on the excuse of "very diligent cosplayers" in this case. There might be a ton of people in the audience or on the streets who notice that Mr. Ral is identical to Ramba Ral, ...

Re: "Hair" in Mechas

Genesic's are an extension of tech already seen in GGG. In one of the on-foot fights with Pizza, Guy uses a Hyper Mode by unloading the energy in sideburn things, which look identical to Genesic's hair. Most of the time the hair is just to look cool and/or unique, though. King Gainer's, I'm not sure...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

I've built a few MGs, one RG (Zeta) and a ton of HGs. HGs just feel my style, mostly because I don't really have the willpower to get better at building and HGs (especially newer ones) are very easy to make and keep stable. It might've been specific to the kit but I couldn't even prevent the RG Zeta...

Re: ufotable to Produce New Fate/stay night Project

Stay Night actually has less arcs for each Master. The only Servants who were noteworthy Servants outside of Saber were Rider, Berserker, and Gilgamesh. Archer was basically written out of the plot since as soon as he was back in fighting form he was killed off. UBW has moments for Lancer, Caster, A...

Re: Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?

I don't know why I started watching it, since I usually find these sort of blatant pandering otakubait series to be boring and annoying. I guess it's fine to watch some every now and again. It's okay. Nothing too bad so far, other than the usual "way too OP MC who amasses a harem with intangible cha...

Re: Magical Girls

There's no reason to believe that the movies aren't a separate continuity, but that doesn't mean that they can't be in-universe movies. Nadesico had an episode where they had the crew of the Nadesico watching an episode of Gekiganger where the cast of Gekiganger watched Nadesico. Sailor Moon had the...

Re: Magical Girls

They had a Vivid special where they were talking about the release of the film, so... There's so much evidence that points to it being an in-universe film, and the only argument against it is, "Well, that evidence doesn't count." Even if it is an alternate universe, it's a movie in the central conti...

Re: SRW Z3: Tengoku-Hen

Word is that the story is approximately 90% original content, with most of the entries being post-plot (rumor has that they could find literally no way to fit Eva 3.0's plot so they just have the units pop out of a wormhole after the events of the film), rehashing their old stuff by resurrecting the...

Re: ufotable to Produce New Fate/stay night Project

I really have to agree. Aimer's songs all sound like she's in desperate need for a glass of water and it just doesn't do anything for me. I'd have had no problem if they reused basically any of the other songs they could've had for the OP, be they Horizon, This Illusion, or even just stayed with Ide...

Re: Fafner: Exodus

Soushi was never on the front lines in Right of Left (if he were, he'd be dead) so that should've been the first time he saw a Festum with his own eyes. And Kazuki's line may very well have been something like the assimilation phenomenon. He never piloted a Fafner before, but the flashback as to how...

Re: Fafner: Exodus

There's definitely plenty of loose threads hanging, since there are about four or five candidates for the spy (not sure if it would be more exciting for it to be one heavily foreshadowed or if we get thrown a curveball) and we don't know if Canon will be able to change the future or not. If Exodus k...

also, it was only thanks to a comment that i discovered the dive shaft makes car sounds instead of the usual magical whooshes! is this where Subaru the company came in? XD That actually is the case.

Re: Magical Girls

I watched Houkago no Pleiades way back when the shorts were released, so it's kind of nice that it's getting a full season to actually breathe, having the pace match the tone, and better develop the characters and story. First episode is all right. Also from the online series, it'll be refreshing to...

Re: SRW Z3: Tengoku-Hen

Actually, with the expectations, I think that the Laevateinn is fairly solid when it comes to animations. It's certainly nothing special, but being done by FMP guy, we're lucky it looks "just okay". The animations in Z3 as a whole are a real mixed bag. It makes sense that a lot of them are just dire...

Okay, I just ranted as to the AEC equipment and why it's universally stupid not twelve hours ago. The tl;dr version: -It looks completely out of place in Nanoha.

Re: Magical Girls

They are both part of the main continuity on paper, but considering things brought up in Force, it seems really odd that Subaru never even mentions Tohma in Vivid when apparently he's supposed to be like a brother to her. Also, being cancelled (or "indefinite hiatus since 2013") is a good reason to ...

Re: Magical Girls

Except the movie isn't an alternate universe/timeline, it's an in-universe production a la Do You Remember Love . That's the justification for things like Precia being portrayed more sympathetically as well as cutting out all of the Graham subplot from A's (as that was still confidential). If you wa...

Re: Magical Girls

I'd have to disagree with you about StrikerS. Honestly, it felt more like it was the first time Nanoha was actually the real main character of the show since she actually has the most personal investment in the conflict. I'm not sure which I prefer between StrikerS and S1 Nanoha, I just know that bo...

Re: Magical Girls

Vivid's started to air, but you'll need to do some digging to find subs (that seem to use some inconsistent naming conventions i.e. "Lio", "Velka",- not that that's much of a problem, since Nanoha has had issues with names from day one.) Some things I've noticed: -Animation is kind of behind the par...

Re: Fafner: Exodus

It's written in kanji. It's Reo. As for the assimilation, one theory I find credence in is that They're the Fafners trying to make them easier to synch up. For example, Sui is going to keep increasing in weight until he equals that of his machine; or Rina's mental state is linked with her Fafner, so...
