Bethesda, please.

Sup /m/ random thought I had. Is it just me or does the transformation for the V Gundam just seem like a more advanced ZZ Gundam design? Just curious about general input on this, I like both suits (V2 is on my God tier) so not bashing on either just a random idea I had. Pic related.

The only thing consistent about Gundam Wing is the inconsistency. See the Dober Gun.
>>
>>12643605
Yup.

Though the idea of a beam dober isn't exactly revolutionary.
>>
>>12643611
The fact that it can fire both normal and beam rounds without any sort of visual modifications is a pretty big deal.
>>
>>12643620
Was it ever shown doing that? I thought they jsut stared animating the Tallgeese Dober as a a beam cannon and never went back but kept all Leo-Dobers as shell-firing.
>>
>>12643624
The Tallgeese's Dober gun also fired shells early on, like when Otto used it to team kill a squad of Aries that was right in his path for whatever reason. (That scene made no sense.)

Ha, you just reminded me. Back when I was a teenager, I was a decent artist (for my age) and I used to go to church. My youth pastor was a big Robotech fan and wanted me to help him make a comic that was retellings of bible stories with mechas. I wasn't THAT good (or very good at all, relatively speaking.) and the work involved would have been absurd so I was like "nah". But that is a thing he legitimately wanted to see happen.

Frontier's CG was fucking horrendous only because it and the 2D parts are stylistically different and it hurts my eyes to see the disparity.

What do we know about Chang Wufei? We know he's nuts.
We know he's dangerous, unpredictable, selfish, we know he uses his name to make bad puns.
When he talks, he over and under emphasizes words seemingly at random. When he eats, he holds his fork like a murderer's knife, gnawing at it's skewered payload like a deranged woodland rodent.
We know he smells like Band-Aids,we know he dresses like a Cuban cab driver, we know he exhibits, nay, flaunts proudly obvious symptoms of over a half dozen disorders you wouldn't wish on your worst enemy's pets.
We know these things about Wufei and so much more than we ever wanted to know about him. Why? Because it's there. It's on the surface. What you see may be what you don't want but it's also what you get. Who is this Coordinator Phantom? This human question mark, this number 8 scoop of vanilla tapioca with a PHD in being perfect and a Masters in "Everybody loves me"? Who is it?! We may never know. I only know one thing: Nobody is this good a person...and nobody can get any worse then this.

yeah they're official, back in the 90's-2007 they just copy and pasted basic info on the Gundam official website when shows were released. It was a great resource now I have to dig through the web archive to get to it all. Unless something has been retconned those were the real deal at the time.

It really depends on what you are looking for. Do you like series like Front Mission? If so the answer -may- be yes, you should care. But if you are looking for Super Mecha or can't simply give a series enough time to develop the you are better off looking somewhere else,

Hello all. Got some bad news, worse news and blog news.

Bad news: I can't do anything on Baka Tsuki due to an odd block list security measure they've got in place and it doesn't seem like I'll be getting any help from the admin feedback form so for the forseeable future I can't personally upload my translations there.

Worse news: I'm getting into the swing of my new job so any future twintail translation isn't going to be anywhere as near as fast as I churned out the last 50 pages of the 9th volume.

Blogs news: I just ordered a whole bunch of novels for myself, put an order down for Alter's take on 3rd best nep and finally started playing Atelier Shallie also, ultimaguil period org

><!--Were you expecting a secret? Too bad! It's just me saying the Flash finale is finale of the year!-->
orz

Take however long you need though man, any work big or small on translations is well appreciated and enjoyed.

Also hype for last BD, wish jap BDs weren't always so expensive or I'd have bought the lot.

What is /m/ favorite work of Leiji Matsumoto? Which anime/manga series?
Personally my favorites were GE999 and the original Harlock anime series. I was confused on how the Space Captain Herlock 2002 OVA series ended though, it ended with the sound of a gunshot and then there was nothing after it. It had a great opening I think, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D11ENl8EI4o

production order
start with the tv show with Harlock vs the Mezone (the space women)

My Youth In Arcadia is an origin story but you're supposed to go "oh damn that's how he got that thing I already know him to have".

There is no continuity. give up on continuity.

/m/ I watched memories last night, and I thought it was alright, really enjoyed some aspects of it, and was just wondering what /m/ thinks about it.


The first part I liked for that late 80's to 90's space horror shit.

The second one I thought was hilarious because the entirety of the JSDF was fucking useless, but I hated that the dude was so retarded and didn't realize what he was doing. Those spacesuits were the fucking bomb too.

The third one I enjoyed but found weird, cause its the least "anime" looking anime short I've ever seen. Reminded me of a french cartoon or something.
