What does /m/ think of Harlock? I say the CG movie recently, but I thought it was pretty bad aside from the cool animation and the general idea and aesthetic got me interested in checking out the original works. Was the movie something that only fans of the older stuff would like, or is it really just bad? And does the original manga have any translations? I'm already getting my hands on the anime.

It's the last episode of the first series. The remake omitted that.
The difference is that I can actually easily follow these scenes. The characters facial expressions make it easy on the eyes to understand what's going on.

And yes, all these panels show he can actually draw human beings. The legs are clearly defined. Can't the same for Matsumoto's messy and amateurish panelling.
Ota was Ishinomori's assistant, so he actually learnt from the best.

Ishinomori did cartoony designs when he first started too, but he does it well enough that the scenes are easy to follow, and not confusing.

Isn't that the case for the entire Dynamic Pro and also Monkey Punch?

Look, just stop, it's obvious you're just trying to get a reaction out of people.
None of your arguments make any sense, the fact that you defend Ota of all people really show how committed you are to shitposting.

You say that Matsumoto cant draw human being and despite being shown examples of the contrary your only pictures are those of characters meant to show their nature through their distorted anatomy.
The Tetsuro/Tochiro archetype reflects his status and personality through it's body, no sane people would argue about how Tochiro looks off next to Harlock because it's part of expressing their characters, for the records, Matsumoto drew himself in the same exact way.
Basically, you're one of those fags who say that Picasso can't draw because he's an expressionist, that's a huge alarm signal of your plebeian and ignorant mindset.

Saying that Matsumoto's paneling is "messy and amateurish" without even articulating the thought already bids me to throw your post into the garbage, but I'll humour you anyway since I have nothing to do right now.
Matsumoto's paneling is anthing but messy, it's actually extremely streamlined and very easy to follow, see>>14553938, what makes it even better is that he really only puts figures otside panels' limits when doing big spreads, see>>14553941, >>14554106, >>14554111 or >>14554337.
Nagano's images posted in this thread are already more elaborated and Nagano himself uses a very simple paneling layout too most of the times.

If there's anything you can say about Matsumoto's paneling is that it's fairly standard and boring, and even then, it's better than some of the clusterfucks you see today.

You try to appeal to feelings by using nebulous and voluntarily subjective statements to prove an "objective" truth, and you make it obvious you don't know shit about aesthetics, let alone manga art and artistic composition and throw around baseless assumptions on anonymous people, you're literally the lowest of the low brows.

Can any other Gundam protagonist actually defeat Setsuna, or do you all just not UNDERSTAND?

But full power Unicorn could just go beyond the time.
Amuro, Kamille, Judau, and Usso all proved that understanding is bullshit and Einstein had no fucking clue what he was talking about beyond being a filthy hippy.

Understanding is only a way to open a dialogue but it's ultimately meaningless because you can wholly understand the enemy and still have to fight them.

It's ironic that it's the AUs that go full UNDERSTANDING when UC constantly pulls it out only to prove it's bullshit.

I've always liked this about Setsuna. He tries to give everyone the benefit of a doubt but will happily put them down if they're a threat to him or his friends. And he won't mope about it afterwards like a faggot either.

Pretty much the only protagonist (besides Loran) that's done UNDERSTANDING right.

a standard Mecha theme song

Civillian and construction vehicle themed designs, transformation and gattai

Having the toys in-hand made me realize just how CLOSE we were to having a Brave series revival. Even more so than their Shinkalion series. When are they going to throw money at Sunrise for a full-blown Brave series, made for the new generation?

And the manga is crap
Jeeg's kinda weird. Hiroshi just becomes the head? How does that work? What do his eyes see when that's happening?

I liked the 2007 show a lot. The manga's not bad, but it's very simple, and the characters aren't as good as the casts of Mazinger or Getter.
>How does that work?
He's a cyborg. Really don't have to explain shit.
>Hiroshi just becomes the head? How does that work?

It works because he's a cyborg.

>What do his eyes see when that's happening?

Whatever Jeeg sees.
Manga isn't even Go Nagai. It's by Tatsuya Yasuda.

Any predictions or theories to share about the series? One prediction I'm making is that since the love "triangle" is kicking in more than ever after eps 16 and 17, I was thinking sooner or later Kaname is gonna try to get Hayate to realize his feelings for Freyja just like how Claudia did with Hikaru and Klan with Alto. As for theories, I thought the best one I heard is that Hayate's father is the one who gave Freyja her mp3 player. Also, yes I am a Freyjafag.

The one who is going to push Freyja to go after Hayate is Mikumo. She from the beginning pushes for Hayate x Freyja.
Mirage is the one who is going to say Hayate to go after Freyja.
Kaname as in the 1st part of the show gives an advice to Mirage.

You work for a company that manufactures UC era Mobile Suits and are looking to sell them to the DoD/US Armed Forces. Zeon or Feddie, it doesn't matter.

Let's see what you all come up with.

OP here. I thought you guys would actually try to write up a sales pitch for a UC era mobile suit.

I am both pleased and slightly bewildered to be wrong.
If you don't accept we will ask Russia and they will definitely buy and mass produce this shit.
Make it sound cheaper to make, more practical, and more deadly than a tank.

Then make it and run off like you robbed a bank.

Oh an actual sales pitch?

"So I want you to imagine this, imagine if tanks had the skills and reflexes of our best soldiers? Able to walk, run, climb over any terrain to take down their enemy. A tall metal giant as a symbol of a shield for his people and a deadly sword to his enemies."

"So I present to you a Mobile Suit, it is so easy to pilot that a prepubescent teenager could out maneuver the most skilled RAF pilots or generic terrorists with ease."

If your prototype works out, they're gonna expect lightning to strike twice by offering you a contract.

That would preclude any running off like you robbed a bank.

Why did the Federation develop a Gundam specifically for nuclear warfare and why was this considered a huge deal worth spending all sorts of resources on and top secret when any Zaku with a bazooka could fire off nukes before the Antarctic treaty was signed?
31 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
The thing is that the Japs really, really love Zeon. It could be that they see the Zeon = Imperial Japan parallels that Tomino intended but somehow completely missed the point he eas trying to make about how that was a BAD thing. Which is why every non-Tomino work geaturing Zeon either tries to make the Federation look worse than Zeon or retcon in a bunch of nonsense to say that Zeon were justified or how they were really 'misunderstood good guys' all along.
Their pathetic nationalists praying for the good old days of WW2 with their frantic attempts to try and be Great Britain certainly disgust me.

Zeon apologists are the worst, though some of it is simply greed by those getting money from the franchise in that they are trying to appeal to the Zeon fanbase in general by keeping them around and wanking the faction off.

It annoys me that people act like Tomino had no hand in this. Before Unicorn, 0083, 0080 or anything else you could accuse of Zeon apologia or Feddie blackening Tomino had already done the same thing himself and really started the whole thing. Even if you want to ignore that the Feds were always supposed to be morally grey and lead by assholes in 0079 while Zeon were sympathetic, even if you want to ignore that the Titans were the Federation's moral corruption given free reign while AEUG was Spacenoid sympathy given a name the Federation still helped Haman in ZZ by giving her a home for her Neo Zeon and then allowing her to colony drop Dublin without any concern for the population. And Char was hailed as a hero by Spacenoids despite having just successfully dropped Luna II on Lhasa. Spacenoids that included the people of Sweetwater, which had started out as new housing for refugees who'd been made homeless by the colony drops, gassings and so on of the One Year War on 14 year earlier and so have every reason to be intimately familiar with the horrors of that kind of action.

If Gundam is now just Zeon wank and he views that as a bad thing then he has no-one but himself to blame frankly.

>compare Britain to Germany during WW2.
Comparing the nation that out-raped and out-pillaged its competitors to become a super power to a nation that was attempting to do the exact same thing.
When it comes to being a blight on the globe, I'm not sure anyone else can compete with Britain.

Rome, China, Egypt and any other historical super power nation/empire probably compares, both in how brutal they were and in how much good was achieved thanks to them despite that brutality, because those super powers were all responsible for a lot of the inventions, social conventions, interconnectedness and so on of the world.

This has to be bait.

>By the way, Dragonball and DBZ aren't the same thing
Bro it's the same manga. It's called Dragon Ball. Only the TV series separates it as Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z.
You have no idea what you're taking about. It is well noted that Miyazaki used the Nausicaa manga as an outlet of expressing things that he deemed too unpalatable for the general audience that his films were primarily aimed at.

That anon is correct. Miyazaki has stated multiple times that he ads certain themes to his films (and he has specifically mentioned pacifism and environmentalism in interviews) because the audience wants those sorts of themes.
The image composition in Berserk is not that good, and the majority of his poses are extremely stiff and unnatural looking. The level of detail in a panel is usually pretty uneven. You get plenty of panels where one corner of the panel is full of detailed line-work, while the other just has the outlines slapped on and that's it. It's like he gets bored with completing the drawing, says "fuck it" and moves on to the next panel where he does the same.

>Bionicle got fucked over because executives wanted to sell toys
>executives wanted to sell toys
>to sell toys

Uh, hello? That's the entire POINT of Bionicle.
It's a shame, because the first line was honestly fucking brilliant. Even the Skull guys were pretty amazing, but they still were building off of the first half of the years having phenomenal and creative set designs that really made it look like the line could hit great highs with the actual sets if not the story. Honestly, Bionicle was always sort of the other way around during it's initial run. The sets looked great, don't get me wrong, but they were sort of bland affairs in terms of actual design. Aside from the crazy initial Rahi who, of course, never did very well.

Then the second year came out and it was largely more of the same. Some of it was neat, but it became clear they were largely going to coast off of the designs of the very first wave. I barely even bothered to keep up with it then. The magic seemed gone. Last time I checked my local lego store, a month or two back, they barely had any Bionicle on the shelves.

Oh well, it was cool to get what we got, at least.
This right here. I think his mask honestly has somewhat of a more nostalgic and interesting appeal to me because of it, even though it's not really my favorite.
