We'll have to see if the Ganglar will be considered to have rights. The Lupins probably don't care if the Ganglar die but the Patos will probably do something like Deka/Time.
So many old Sentai episodes end on the team looking into the distance
Well the Patorangers and their mecha have batons and a gun, and the gun could be some kind of sci-fi thing... they could be capable of non-lethal takedowns.

The Lupinrangers have swords, and their mecha have a buzzsaw and a gatling gun. I think they'll be using lethal force all the time.

Maybe the Ganglar will be robots, or have bounties on them or something. It would be kind of interesting if there was conflict in Patorangers just wanting to put the Ganglar away and the Lupinrangers just kill any Ganglar that gets in their way.
I expect differences in how they work to be a forefront thing in Lupin vs. Pato. Arguing over what's the right thing to do. I have to wonder how long the Lupins will also be the main criminals of the show before they start belligerently helping the Patos to stop the crazy treasure stealing aliens.
That's cuz it's cool.

>That guy is just a faggot, but sadly Japan agreed with him and we got Wing as a result.
Let it be said that I hate Wing nearly as much as I hate G. Don't get me wrong, I stomach Victory due to it being Late UC and X gets on my nerves be being too close to Wing but gets away with it because of the characters and setting.
Because Domon's one true voice actor went on to save actual lives instead of fictional ones, and we shouldn't marr his memory.

But in reality, I would love more G Gundam universe stuff.
They should animate my fanfiction sequel to the series that I never actually wrote down.
Because that's what happens to less popular Gundam series, I guess.

Will Gundam ever reach the height of popularity it had in the United States with Gundam Wing? If you ask anyone about Gundam in the USA know, if they know anything about it, they remember Gundam Wing. They dont know fuck about Gundam Unicorn or 0079.

I imagine most of the USA posters on /m/ have Wing as their gateway series into Gundam. Wing was fucking huge, and rivaled Evangelion and Pokemon for popularity in the USA.

>rivaled Evangelion
Still never watched this.
Please do yourself afavor and continue doing so.
nonsense, evangelion is worth a watch. Just dont do the rebuilds.
i shouldn't have laughed, but I did. fuck

Nope. Because Anime itself will never hit the height that it did back then either.

I am sure you know, Wing was played on TV during a time when it was a year or two after things like Dragonball Z, Sailor Moon, Pokemon exploded in popularity on TV. It was still thought of as "Fresh and New".

Then the Anime industry exploded in North America. And things were good for quite a few years... And we were over-saturated with garbage and mediocre stuff...

Now the industry is not popular enough to support itself physically like it used to.

It has returned to being a very niche market. Definitely not like it used to be before the explosion, but no where near the height of popularity.

In Japan of course, its popularity rarely ever changes and is still popular... But Western Markets are much more fickle. We "Use and Abuse" our shit, while Japan likes to sit back and take its time with stories, genre's and tropes.

>Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II
Directed by: Takao Okawara
Written by: Wataru Mimura
Music by: Akira Ifukube
Special Effects by: Koichi Kawakita
Release Date: 1993

Pleased by the success of the previous movie, the next entry saw the return of three more classic monsters: MechaGodzilla, Rodan, and Baby Godzilla. Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla II was originally conceived as the last chapter of the Heisei Era. Toho intended to kill Godzilla here and have his son continue his legacy in order to make way for the American reboot that Tristar was getting together overseas. However, the American reboot was experiencing a chaotic development and Toho continued with their series in the meantime.

One of the worst Godzilla films. The human plot and acting is embarrassingly bad, it has the worst handling of a "message" in the entire series and that message doesn't even make sense in context of the actual film, it shamelessly rehashes from far better films in its own genre, the Indiana Jones "homage" does Japanese filmmaking no favors, and the special effects pale in comparison to films with smaller budgets from decades earlier. I am honestly astounded by how awful this movie is and how some people can seriously consider this made-for-tv flick anything approaching the word good.

On the positive side of things, Battra has a neat larva form and the poster art is great.
Easily my least favorite of the heisei movies.
While the human story and characters are fine, The fight at the end is embrassingly bad, due to the barely ass functional puppets. The enviromental nonsense is also annoying.

Battra is definitely a highlight of the movie, even if he re uses Rodan's roar.

It's nothing Amazing or even one of the best.
but It's a movie I've watched a lot when I was young and I still enjoy it. Heisei Mecha G is cool, The action while reliant on beam spam does the job alright, and Baby Godzilla is the best rendition of godzilla's son and the most adorable monster . That said I wish Rodan would have been handled a lot better, not just in effects but in plot too.

Nothing great, but still an enjoyable entry.
I remember being pleasantly surprised by this movie, was expecting it to be bad like the previous one, but it ended up being pretty entertaining. It's not too ambitious with its messages, but I think that actually does the film a favor. The emotional side of the monsters is fairly well done and not overplayed or humanized, and I like how they managed to get the viewer to root for them against humanity without making the humans come off as outright evil. They were more misguided. The whole "life against artificial life" stuff isn't shoved down the viewer's throat either.
It's got problems like a not overly memorable cast (out of the new characters, I only remember the pterosaur autist and the chick that bonded with Baby), the stiff Rodan puppet, a bland MG design and beamspam out the ass. But these didn't detract that much for me, and there's positives like Baby's look (compared to Minilla at least) and the masterful score. Re-energized Godzilla turning the tides at the end is a cool moment.

This movie is where the biggest problem of the Heisei kicked into maximum overdrive: beam spam. The new Mechagodzilla has no melee weapons. He never even engages in melee. And while the first Mechagodzilla was primarily ranged based, that was more an exception, whereas at this point, it was becoming the rule. Even Rodan does little besides just fire her beam.
That said, this movie does have a kick ass theme and a decent baby Godzilla for once. I'd rate it below Vs. Mothra, but better than '84 and Vs. Biollante.

But FSS is like only 15% mecha. They're just props for the setting and never get much limelight.
If it has a giant robot on its cover, it's classified as a mecha series.

It's amazing that Flight of the Navigator and The Last Starfighter have not been remade yet.

With the flurry of Hollywood remaking 80s movies in recent years, I would have thought these 2 movies would have been remade for sure.
I-95 would have been better.
but can they faithfully recreate the deathblossom?
hollywood has long considered scifi a very risky gamble. it would take more than a few major names behind it to get either made, especially in the current climate with a franchise focus
>It's amazing that Flight of the Navigator and The Last Starfighter have not been remade yet.With the flurry of Hollywood remaking 80s movies in recent years, I would have thought these 2 movies would have been remade for sure.

How can you remake something so quintessential 80s as The Last Starfighter and Flight of the Navigator ?
It's an exercise in frustration and doomed to fail. 100% fail.
So you're better off inventing something new.

Yeah, it's alright, definitely worth reading for a Getter Robo fan. Nice to see different artists take on the series, though none of them do anything too amazing with the story.

Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays to all. It's that time of the year again and I hope everyone's doing well and enjoying the season.

So as a very special Groupwatch, we'll signal the end of 2018 by watching a bunch of OVAs together all through out the month of December.

The concept is simple, every day we'll watch an episode of something together and give people a chance to talk about it. We'll discuss what we liked, pick apart what we didn't like, and hopefully this experience will inspire people to watch something they may have missed out on.

We'll be starting off with Haja Taisei Dangaioh, directed by Toshiki Hirano. Once we clear that, I'll post the next OVA and we'll watch that as well.

I could tell without confirmation, noone does it as well as he.
Don't quote me on this, but I think Kawamori designed the planes, dangaioh's combined form, and Obari cleaned it up for animation.

As for the rest, I think everyone participated by submitting a different design. I think Ishizu designed all the spaceships and vehicles you see, with Obari and Ohata working on monster and mecha designs.

If Garo and Symphogear count as /m/, does Witchblade?
If so what is your favorite incarnation?
Just picked up the first issue of the remake and felt that it was a little feministy, but it was overall pretty good.

The only straight up magic in the Witchblade anime is the Witchblade itself. The cloneblades are tech based reproductions or something, the monsters are all cyborgs or dead people stuffed inside quad tanks to act as controllers, and there's even a male cloneblade that's just a powerarmor
Florida Woman (more typically Florida Man) is in reference to the very common headlines in newspapters/television programs recounting the strange actions of people in Florida. An example might be "Florida man accused of sodomizing alligator in front of children after consuming twelve ounces of methamphetamines" or something to that extent.

The actress from the live action Witchblade show apparently has a running history of alcohol abuse and at one point was arrested in Florida for being drunk and disorderly in public after mixing drink and pills, with accounts stating that she was walking into the path of traffic.
I knew the Florida Man thing, I just didn't have the context about the actress and was confused.
Sejic has two styles: the "photorrealistic" one he uses on covers for cape comics and the like (>>16094229), and the "sketchy" style for fanart, Sunstone and Switch (here).
He used the sketch in the most recent Aphrodite IX after maybe the second issue.

A thing I did to teach myself Illustrator. I remade the original chart from scratch and translated the names.

From the looks of it, seems that MSD is aiming to integrate the most important Mobile Suit Variations into The Origin's "canon". I wouldn't be surprised if they add the Zaku Marine Type or the Sniper in the future.

I have to agree with the other anon. If you're admitting to machine translating, you are making it worse overall. You're just making coherent sense of jibberish or attempting to and it's not worth it. Of it's practice to learn the program, keep it to yourself.

If that were the case, then the zillions of dollars on Alibaba being traded mostly with machine translation wouldn't exist.

Are you trying to make your position look worse

I actually don't think some degree of machine translating is necessarily inherently that bad for setting material where tone, prose, etc. don't matter but it becomes a problem if you're committing to translating every sentence word for word even if you have no rightful idea what the fuck it actually meant.
Machine translation is grossly inaccurate even if you're attempting to get the gist of something. Wrong is wrong. There's no way around it. Sorry.
Common speech and questions are kinda ok for machine translation.

Technical information is a fucking trainwreck through machine translation. Even if it's made up, simplified technical information.

People need to remember that what goes up on the internet stays on the internet. If you're posting mistranslated shit it will forever contaminate search results. Misinformation is one of the worst problems in modern society. Don't make that worse even if it's just about cartoons.
