The best mecha manga. No exceptions.

The manga is passable at best. They clearly stopped giving a shit towards the end because they just wanted to finish it so they could move onto the next thing.
>The manga is amazing at best.
Every ending of literally every art form sucks. This is basically one of the fundamental laws of the universe.

Stop lying.
I'm not. You are.

What did Tomino mean by this?
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>because CCA was so popular
This makes no sense. Do people just randomly make stuff up?
Moreover CCA wasn't really that popular from what I've read.
>This makes no sense
If CCA was a hit and ZZ was a flop it'd make another Gundam TV series look a poor investment but another Gundam movie look like a good one. But as >>15979554 pointed out, it's a largely bollocks story.

I don't know about Char's Counterattack's reception, but ZZ wasn't a flop anyway so it's a reduntant point really. ZZ didn't have ratings as high as Zeta from what I remember, but they're still some of the highest in the franchise's history and only a wee bit lower than Zeta.
It meant that Victory would be even better than F91.
And it was.
Well, there is that interview with Tomino and Anno where Anno is like "A lot of directors like your movie (CCA)" and Tomino is like "I haven't heard anything of that" though this is probably more indicative of the critical reception rather than the opinion of the audience. Then Tomino says that after the premiere one of the produces spoke to him and was all like "So.. that was it? Well, I guess it can't be helped."
Also I read in an article somewhere (I mean by a professional Japanese reviewer from that time) that at the time CCA came out there was a Gunam fatigue and a lot of fans were disillusioned with the franchise. But he is just one guy of course so I don't know how reliable his personal experience is. He also thought that many people didn't like CCA because it was hard to understand.

Further, considering CCA in itself the very fact that it got greenlit at all suggests a sort of desperation on the part of the producers to grab the attention of the viewer. Anyway you look at it it seems like a sell-out.

In this context it makes much more sense to me that if the next UC Gundam project got the short end of the stick its because the producers didn't feel secure thay there was anything more they could get out of the franchise.

Isn't Sento basically going through the same process as Shouichi did in Agito?
Guess so. I'm completely ok with that

Yeah, for me the only bad thing Build have is the opening. Not the song, but the visual aspect.

Was Gundam Age the last Gundam TV series Sunrise took care animating?

No that's BF.
>Two mechs standing still, one has moving bits that flow at the speed you cannot see, other just falling its arms around.

>Good animation,

G-Reco was Studio 1. That's why it looked good.
That looks like shit
You're talking about the same people who post screencaps of really well animated scenes and then go, "UH GUYS, THIS ISN'T ANIMATED WELL AT ALL???? HERE'S MY PROOF, A SCREENCAP."

Rip on its story all you want, but there are still some really well animated sequences in the show.

Whatever actual problems you have with the show, or whatever desire you have to gloat about "lel kiddy show didn't sell!!! bandai btfo!!!" has nothing to do with the actual contributions by the animators who worked on the show.

Educate yourself.

Why won't they let Obari animate everything? Is he really expensive? Maybe they should've hired animators similar to his style to animate with him?

Explain anime production to me please. Why was the animation so bad compared to previous Gundam works(00, AGE) by the same studio?

彼らはなぜ大張正己がすべてをアニメ化させないのだろうか? 彼は本当に高価ですか? たぶん、彼らは彼と一緒にアニメ化するために彼のスタイルに似たアニメーターを雇ったのでしょうか?

私にアニメ作品を説明してください。 同じスタジオで、以前のガンダム作品(00、AGE)に比べてアニメーションが悪かったのはなぜですか?
Obari is known to overwork himself to te point of sickness. Also, directors are usually rotating to keep up with production schedule.

Much like you can pick different DBZ episodes and denote who directed because of the animation style.

They only do new sequels to UC stuff. But none of the alternative unverses had any sequel.

As far I know there is a manga or novel sequel of Gundam Wing.

Instead of wasting time with Gundam Build Figthers, they should do a sequel to Gundam Wing already.

Do you /m/ agree?

wonder if the devil gundam incident sparks an arms race for the colonies? they've seen how far neo-japan has gotten in terms of tech and even if they outlaw all DG based tech, it's still going to be a sore spot for them in terms of national pride.

like how back in the 90s countries was afraid pakistan would do their own public nuke test because of their rivalry with india (who did one to get into the nuke club). they never did (one theory was even if they did one, it would be puny compared to india's).

so if they can't reproduce DG tech of their own, what kind of super science tech would they bring up?
wing is done, they destroyed all the weapons.
say that to frozen teardrop

the underwhelming mech battle and robotwars got me thinking. we cant have both. it either looks super badass or its effective. pick one.
>we cant have both
We literally can.

As separate shows.

Just like how we have sports entertainment and actual contact sports.

It's a mindblowing concept, I know. I don't blame you if you need to sit down and collect your thoughts.
They just need to make the showy bits out of something stronger than plastic. Even if you gave your mech horns of cheap wrought iron you could still probably take out a camera or two

Say what?

I like them non-whiny. I mean, if you're fighting in a war, you should be more-or-less reconciled with the idea that you need to kill the enemy and keep your friends alive.

I wonder if it's a Japanese thing, specifically. In all the war films I've seen from the West, the main characters are never really that upset about having to shoot the enemy. (In China, it's unequivocally a good thing to kill the bad guys.)

How's the Robot Wars revival? Battlebots's was alright though a bit too heavy on the reality TV show sob story crap for the teams.
Power Armors is more practical than Cyborgs in warfare; less cost of repairs.

You just summed up everything wrong with the Robot Wars revival.

Well at least 2017 had a more competent camera crew this time, you can see what is happening now. '16 had little redeeming value.
