It's a no contest dude the winner is 2001 A Space Odyssey. Godzilla doesn't stand a chance. We're talking B-cult japanese movies against one if not the best science fiction epic of the 20th century. Sorry for the giant lizard.

2001 is fucking boring though.
Destroy All Monsters is boring. The main characters leave no impression, plot is a retread of a better movie, aliens are forgettable, and the famous final battle is a one-sided affair that is immediately deflated by the Fire Bird thing that happens immediately afterwards.

If you're looking for reasons to not watch Wing, at least watch X.

I just finished Gundam X and I actually liked it quite a bit. Would recommend a watch. The concept sounded amazing and where they tried to go with the "Newtype" plotline at the end was great. It's a shame the japs hated it so much it got cut from 50+ episodes to 39. The last arc was extremely rushed, had tons of QUALITY, and didn't really have a satisfying Gundam battle. You could tell the last half of the series was phoned in.

I felt bad for best girl Pala, she got shoehorned in so late. if the series actually went the full 52, she probably would have had a bigger part. All in all, it came down to a great idea with terrible execution.
There's no real reason not to watch them. Gundam X is pretty good as well; probably my favourite non-G AU.

His last name is Killing and he wants to stop the production of one mobile suit by nuking an entire colony... what is wrong with this franchise? Why does it feel like a competent man come up with this OVA and then handed it off to a retard? Literally no one would be retarded enough to do that. I know it's a fucking cartoon and Zeon are the bad guys but I wouldn't be so insulted if this OVA didn't have such a serious tone before hand. How am I supposed to take this seriously?

Oh, and how had no one found and recovered the Zaku that's on THE FUCKING SIDE OF THE ROAD?

Read the thread
-Al should have died when he fell off the truck
He fell off because of the turn, not due to speed. They were going 30 at most while turning, something that's easily survivable.
>The Kampfer being able to solo an entire team of mobile suits
Wow the MS meant to destroy a prototype mobile suit and is piloted by a veteran is able to breeze through GMs and Guncannons. Not to mention that most of them were falling from the ship making them easy targets.
-Practically every fight that takes place inside the colony and not one blows a hole in it.
The GMs and Guncannons never fired onto the Kampfer from what I remember. The Kampfers shotgun might not be able to put a hole through the colony or since it only shoots at the runway and at the falling GMs with the ship behind them it just never hit the the edge of the colony with enough force and it never misses with it's rockets. And the Alex really only used its gatling guns which seemed like slightly less shitty Vulcans so those wouldn't put a hole in it either.
>Al doesn't even attempt to interact with Mischa or Garcia.
Because Bernie is the "ace". And in case you didn't notice they both kinda acted like assholes towards Bernie.

Some are left around so long they just become part of the scenery.
I really doubt the Federation or the colony administration are aware that the Zaku is lying in the woods. When Al comments in the weapons having been taken away, he uses the word 回収, which to me sounds like it was Zeon who recovered them.
>Because Bernie is the "ace". And in case you didn't notice they both kinda acted like assholes towards Bernie.

also they wanted nothing to do with Al , they actually wanted Al dead

Also those aliens had biotech good enough to recreate extinct life forms. Think of all the diseases they could cure, all the evolutionary questions they could help us answer.
>Does anyone else think that the humans were fundamentally wrong?
That depends if you have a more germanic view of war or not. If so, then you probably think that civilians shouldn't mess with occupying enemy forces and if they do that, they deserve the shit they will get. If you don't share this view, then you probably think that it is in the due right for occupied region population to rebel and claim back their clay.

>Fuckable alien girls are always welcome, but genocide of slugs/bugs/crabs is always portrayed as perfectly okay in our science fiction.
It is easier to demonize and kill things that don't look like us. I doubt that will ever change in fiction, as well in war propaganda.

Well, at least we'll always have "Enemy Mine".

If you're a business executive with the resources to let the money keep funneling in, yes.

For most of us, it's a lot of time that can't be committed and a whole lot of interest stretched beyond what is necessary.
I still prefer the Niggabee voice
Though I don't particularly agree with the latter point, they are definitely good ones, especially considering how few long lived franchises there are that are good. I am also curious as to what you mean by interest stretched beyond what is necessary.

Am I missing something critical for the plot here such as Helium 3 or Minovsky particles?

so a space suit (normal suit) eventually runs out of oxygen, right?
what about space colonies then? don't they ever run out of oxygen?
>No they don't. (Electrolysis of water (H2O) is the main method to generate oxygen aboard the ISS. Water is split into oxygen (O2) and hydrogen (H2). The oxygen is vented into the breathable cabin air system, known as the Oxygen Generation System, while the explosive hydrogen is vented externally.) Plus the space colony has its own climate with forests and lakes, breathing air produced from the trees naturally.
And uhh, where did the WATER to sustain all this came from in the first place?

How to water in space? I'm losing sleep over this, help.

Which doesn't mean those trees were of terrestrial origin. The point wasn't that transporting trees in and of itself was inefficient, but that transporting them out of a gravity well is inefficient.


It's not just background material. The show flat out says it: >>16186025


It would help to supplement it yes, but on the balance needing to nurse the life support systems and environment for a couple of years is almost certainly less trouble and money than lifting trees out of a gravity well. Plus, as>>16187302 implied it's only a major problem if you have the colony inhabited, and construction of the interior would probably take a few years on it's own during which large parts of the interior wouldn't need much life support or have people.


No, you start the ecosystem and then plant trees; not plant trees and use them to start the ecosystem, because the ecosystem is superficial and beyond insects, likely to be entirely controlled. It doesn't need to have lots of interdependence since humans will be caretaking for basically the whole thing for at least a few years anyway.

Water can be found as ice in the asteroid belt.
And don't forget that the moon has apparently way more water on it that was previously thought. And Mars too!

What do you think of Wings of Honneamise /m/? I just watched it for the first time and absolutely loved it. Lee Morimoto's performance as Shirotsugh has a very natural quality to it (makes sense, since he hasn't done a lot of anime) that I think adds a lot to the character.

I really didn’t like it. What do people find so good about it?
Plot, music, design, aesthetics, animation quality.
animation, story, designs, music.
Same here. I adore the aesthetics and the music, and watching Shirotsugh gradually but surely find a purpose in his life and something for which to strive always inspires me.
It looks really nice. The liftoff scene was great, for example, and if you want button porn you won't find any better. The setting and characters are also interesting (although, yes, not necessarily likeable).

I've heard a lot of people talk about the deep themes of the story, and how they evolved into NGE, but I really don't care about whether what's-his-name ran away or not. I just wanted to know under what circumstances they would actually make it into space, and what effect that would have on that world. That was delivered to me, so I was satisfied.

these all sound ridiculously overpowered and stupid.
Maybe Team Dai-Gurren? They have probability altering and multidimensional weaponry. That's more than most seem to have. Not to mention spiral power.
It's like most SF. There's a certain suspension of disbelief you have to hold as to "If the setting has X and Y, why is any of this even happening?". If you can overcome that suspension, then you can get a lot of enjoyment out of seeing an hour of one lost tin can wandering around a warehouse, because you've bought into the tension of what it could do if it gets loose.
