You're posting on a giant robot sub-board of a Japanese cartoon website. I'm guessing you're not qualified to give me that advice.

You know, now that Toho's getting more into CGI, I wouldn't mind seeing a more maneuverable Godzilla that can bend and twist and reach around like that.

Showa: 1954-1975
Heisei: 1984-1995
Millennium: 1999-2004
Legendary: 2014-2020
Post-Millennium: 2016 - XXXX

Keep in mind there are over thirty of these things. It's a convenient way to distinguish movies as by similarities/differences in tones, special effects, continuity or lack thereof, and creative teams. Mention a specific era and people wil know exactly what movies you're referring to.

Janus Films now holds the distribution rights to Godzilla (1954).
>>
>>15976661
It's just coincidence, and it mostly applies to Kamen Rider and Godzilla, because both had breaks, new continuities and style changes with their returns. Godzilla also officially had a "Millenium" era.

Meanwhile, Ultraman used to be seen pretty strongly as split into Showa and Heisei too, since the Heisei series broke from the Showa continuity, but due to the current shows going back to the Showa continuity and references to previous Ultras being a big part of every Ultraman series nowadays, you don't see that classification brought up much anymore.

Given Japanese design sensibilities it's entirely possible, yes.

Blu-rays are remastered.
>>
>>15977622
You're talking about remastered DVDs, not some different version of the show. The blu rays are the best way to watch it.
>>
>>15977629
I was under the impression that the remastered release tweaked the animation for the better? Or is it just a remastered release for VHS to DVD transition?
>>
>>15977635
>I was under the impression that the remastered release tweaked the animation for the better?
How could a mid-2000s DVD release tweak the animation of a show made in 1982? The techniques used to create the show weren't in use anymore at that point, you would end up with something that looks like the Zeta Gundam movies.

>Or is it just a remastered release for VHS to DVD transition?
Yes. The blu rays are definitive. The Bunnyhat release has all the various extras including a remade opening sequence, etc.
>>
>>15977644
Huh. I was wrong, then. Guess I'll have to go with the blu-rays (not that I had much of a choice anyway considering that torrent is dead).

Thanks, anon.

Hello and welcome to the Groupwatch thread.

In these threads, I'll recommend a show and we'll watch it together and discuss each episode at a time.

The rules are simple

1. We watch one episode a day and discuss what happens in it.
2. We don't discuss future spoilers.

Last time, we watched Muteki Kyojin Ideon and so for a change of pace I've decided that this time we'll be watching Space Adventure Cobra. Directed by legendary director Osamu Dezaki, it's a lovely and colorful manga adaptation that is filled with great animation and amazing visuals.

Please, join us and check it out.

If you're going to put in the effort to mangle the code and modify hard-written images that *should* be text and the text limits due to japanese characters, you're gonna do a good translation. The barrier to entry is too high for something entirely niche. Just follow the wikia if you need to for events, and read the translated menus.
>>
I started Menace of Axis V last month without knowing any Japanese and got the hang of it after an hour or so. You just got to figure out the basic menu runes and you can get into the game easy. The tough part is the event trees which is where I had to check the wiki and a forum LP i found.

Already finished a blind Fed run (screwed myself out of White Base mode by disbanding them too fast) and a pretty good Titans run (got the good ending) The Zeon campaign got really boring though since Ramba died before I got the Dom so I got stuck waiting for the game to let me invade Jaburo and Belfast.

I wonder why the turret on chicken legs is considered to be a kind of standard of mecha realism? In fact, it is, almost, no better than the tank...
