1979 standard. it was an improvement over other rainbow coloured super robots.

All you had around that time was stuff like Combattler V, GoLions, Mazinger Z, Brave Raideen, and Daitarn 3. If you want the purely warfare stuff I'd recommend 0080: War in the Pocket or 0083: Stardust Memory.

Get ready for some feels if you watch 0080 though.

we have like 40 KMF with unique movesets not to mention the slash harken/landspinner mechanics to make an interesting game
The worst ACE.
What we really need is a new game like the DS RPG, but covering the whole franchise

>Game original Knightmares and characters
>KMF upgrades including unique new versions like Guren Mk-II Kai
>Alternate story paths

That game was just for season 1. Imagine if they made a new game that covered whole anime, Akito, Oz, Lancelot & Guren and whatever else they come up with.

Comparing them to Neca gives the impression that they are at least affordable, even if they have gummy plastic and sloppy paint aps. Bring Arts have those qualities and cost 4x the price.

Pretty much this. I expect these are very overpriced, mediocre figures, but I've wanted them for the better part of 2 decades, so I can live with that.

But that's wrong you fucking retard.
Oh of course. The change in Citan's fighting style in his Omnigear was kinda out of nowhere though.

That which defines any music as being /m/ is often its association with /m/ related media, but a vague and loosely agreed upon aesthetic guides this classification as well so this is not the only prerequisite. In fact /m/... anything, often defies the strict boundaries of academic definition relying more so on community consensus than anything else.

That said, what is your quintessential idea of /m/ music?

Haven't seen an AC thread here in a while. So, instead of talking about the games (because this E3 went to a wood-armed samurai rather than mechs), let us instead talk and speculate about the settings of the games. IMO, 4 and 4A had the best setting. I like the idea of pointless rivalry between companies, with some revolutionary stuff thrown in.

Anyway, GA America>all you plebs.

Everytime someone makes a "best parts of the each game/gen put together" everybody always choose FA visuals for stuff like mission briefings, loading screen, and sometimes general mecha aesthetics.

If you had to make a Macross entry to retcon Macross II into the Canon and bridge the gap between 2050s and 2090s how would you do it?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Just make it a failed experimental design that only exists as a museum prop, that's about where it is now despite not being canon.
Just make it some eccentric rich person getting a custom VF built by the Macross world's equivalent of some Italian coachbuilding company.
Like those mega rich dudes who get some company like Bertone to customize a Ferrari chassis with a one of a kind shell.

Im fairly new to Gundam but a few of the games look incredibly enjoyable. I saw the newest one just release, but haven't heard the best feedback about it, even though I am tempted

Where should I start with games and shows?
7 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
The Dynasty Warriors games aren't bad, plus they basically set the entirety of gundam animation (Except the one's we don't talk about) in front of you, and are an excellent showcase of all the MS, particularly the more recent ones.
Show-wise, if the Art style doesn't turn you off, then the originals (0079, Zeta, ZZ) are a good start, but failing that any of the AU's (barring perhaps G Gundam, due to its tone) are pretty good starting points.
You can use PPSSPP to play a number of good ones. Namely, Gundam Battle Universe, Gundam vs Gundam Next Plus, and SD Gundam G Generation Overworld. GBU was actually the game that got me interested in watching Gundam. Back then, I knew so little about it, that my first campaign playthrough had me going EFSF -> Delaz -> Axis -> AEUG -> Neo Zeon
I've only seen Iron blooded orphans so I can't give you advice for shows, but >>16618206 is right in that playing the old psp games is good. You can emulate them on android now too - I'm actually playing Battle Royale right now, though Battle Universe or Assault Survive might be better to play.

considering the crossover manga implies universal century is the world they reset to I'd say that's about right
then again it was just an excuse to have a suped up ZZ manfight ideon so who knows how "real" it is, since it's completely non canon

>I hope you're not latching onto the fact that I used the word cartoonish

No, i'm 'latching on' , a charged phrase, to the fact that you watched a cartoon and came up with a statement like

>EoE's philosophizing was downright laughable, too.

Yeah. Of course it's laughable. It's shoe-horned into a cartoon.

For one to expect otherwise (in other words: to expect strong new-roads philosophy rather than the parroting of existing and well known philosophical ideologies) speaks to that persons' naivete regarding either philosophy or anime. Probably both.

Tip for enjoying the adult cartoons : suspend not only disbelief, but suspend your expectations, judge them within their own sphere, and don't compare art on any level that attempts to reason out an opinion.

Hey /m/ I had a question that I was hoping you could help me with. In G Gen Overworld there was a method to giving your custom pilot the unique skills of some of the other pilots (like newtype, x-rounder, super coordinator, etc) using this method

How do I convert that to PPSSPP and Cheat Engine?

Also general Overworld thread I guess

hey guys, i'm trying to colorize godzilla raids again,the scene i have in mind is the first fight with anguirus, and maybe later do some more, anyone have screen caps of the fight,like most of the scene because i don't have a device on my laptop to take consent screen caps, anything helps.
Wait, you're trying to colorize it? Any progress so far?
a short soundless clip, i'd need the right screen caps to do the full thing, but i can.

>It's literally too easy to shop dicks going into both ends of him.

It is kind of weird though that no one seems to give a fuck when all of the other guys on white base have died up until now.

Like, its clearly happened. This is nowhere near their first death.
I will say that the weird reactions of the aliens to courtship and other romance stuff was pretty novel for its time and now. Its a theme not explored enough with aliens. You'd think that in star wars and star trek everyone wouldn't be hip on what other species do.

Like, there would probably be aliens that eat with their butt. Or species that believe rape is the best way to procreate.

But this shit never comes up in scifi. Aliens are just a stand in for "other" humans.
