It's been 9 years since I last watched Wing. I'm not sure if I'm ready. To get myself ready, can we have a grunt thread? I mean Wing had some of the best grunt mobile suits in all of gundam.

>Hell even on Earth fighting in tundra isn't the same as fighting in the jungle.
GM Cold District and Ground Types exist for a reason anon.
Well, it is from a time when animating explosions was cheaper than animating actual fights.

On the note of grunts, Wing is often made fun of because of very prevalent plot armor. When a Gundam Pilot gets in a grunt unit, that grunt unit can fight and take hits.

The thing is, it's actually quite the genius move. By manipulating the story to put the Gundam Pilots into the grunts, it opened up opportunities to animate the grunt units proper, show what they really can do, and give them some love.
Don't all universe's MS have AMBAC?
>Hell even on Earth fighting in tundra isn't the same as fighting in the jungle.
Sandrock's gimmick relative to the other Operation M Gundams was that it was specifically designed for protracted desert combat. Extra cooling vents (including a bigger chin piece), joints are covered or coated to prevent sand from building up in inconvenient locations, and those giant blades instead of beam sabers to reduce energy drain.

However, that's not as cool as BFGs, more dakka, or teleport-nothingpersonal-scythe tomfoolery, which is why Quatre gets the leadership/strategist role as well.
You have forgotten the best pilot, like a woman.

OP is a faggot, you don't skip a series because it "feels like shit". And hold your attention on one thing for an hour and a half. Just watch in production order so when you get back to Victory you can appreciate it instead of being a fag.

For those new to gunpla/plamo or even just new to this thread; please read the guide. Please read it before asking questions, as there is a chance it has already been answered there.
For those unfamiliar, "plamo" is a shortened form of "plastic model". If it's made of plastic, someone can probably help you here!
If you're new, you're gonna fuck up. Don't worry! If you're experienced, don't make the new people worry!
>Why won't anyone answer my question?
Try being specific, especially about your materials and process. Post pictures whenever possible; even if the kit/part looks bad, you are more likely to get help posting pictures.

And don't forget that there ain't nothing wrong with a little guilty pleasure bullshit.
I'm in my late 20s, but I wasn't born early enough to remember the golden age of fansubs. I associate yellow subs with Macross 7 and LoGH, actually, because central-anime used that color.

I wonder if that's played a part in timing...when making scripts for Dragonar I put the Italian script in white and the Japanese script that my various Japanese translators looked over in yellow. Maybe it's cause I always associated yellow with Japanese more, though of course the practical reason is to make it easy to differentiate the two sub tracks.
No matter how many times it happens I still get angry when I watch a blu-ray and it has white subtitles.

Every person who argues yellow subtitles are bad deserves a few decades of beatings in the afterlife

I'm looking for the music of a guy with dark sunglasses. I remember his sunglasses being a bit "weird", and he's pretty weird looking. It's 80s synth, one of his songs is called "Marie", and I think it's from the early 80s.

He also has a song about suicide, I think.

I'm also looking for an unrelated band; there's a synth music video with a bust of Beethoven, if I remember correctly, getting splashed with paint. Another one of their videos have some sort of pixelated graphics with an object travelling through fruit. Very nice synth music. Thank you in advance.

It's true, LockMart are a bunch of snakes
For the Marine Corps ACV program, they originally partnered with Patria to deliver an AMV variant, but then they betrayed them, broke off the deal, and submitted their own OC DONUT STEEL IFV that totally wasn't developed from the data they got from Patria while they had a working partnership
Best part is they still lost to Italian and Singaporean designs

Here's a question, why should I watch Mazinger Z? I'm not a big fan of super (for example, I found G Gundam very boring). I have read the mainline stuff of Getter Robo, I really enjoyed that. My worry is that a full series of a super robot show like that would be full of meaningless bloat.
>he thinks 08th MS Team is 'real robot'
Super isn't HOT BLOOD AND GUUUUTS WOOOOAAAAH, so don't always expect G Gundam or Gunbuster. I suggest you try and watch it for yourself honestly, even if you just want to watch for crabsticks
Gundam is real robot. Not realistic robot. Not everything can be Votoms or Dougram.
Hell, Dougram is still pretty super, I swear it doesn't receive actual battle damage until halfway through the show.

What exactly happened with the last few episodes?

Rumors about stuff like Anno blowing the budget on pill binges is what I've heard for years, but is there anything concrete in commentaries and art books?

What happened to the budget? And why was it all so slapdash?

I'd just like to have some more concrete ideas rather than Tv Tropes tier rumors and hear-say.

It is out of place with the rest of the episode and the rest of the series as a whole.
They most likely wanted it to be composed of static shots to simply convey a battle since there was no time but it was still not finished pictures because of budgetary reasons.
Or maybe because no matter what they animated, they wouldn't do it justice. So instead, they allowed their audience to use their imagination. Wow, what a concept!
By that logic, go read a book. Your imagination can give you all the flashy battles you could ever conceive of, why have a budget for animation at all!
Yes it has to be all or nothing, fucking genius anon you're a scholar and Gainax should have hired you to ruin episode 6 for everyone

For you Rider Atsume guys, anyone know how the hell to actually get the Mugen Icon or the Ghost base? Twitter seems to imply that you can get both, and that there's another special Collection item, but not only isn't the Ghost base in the purchasable areas, but the two special slots in the Collection menu aren't either. This is after the latest update by the way. Was it some sort of special giveaway?
