>ITT Retarded Questions that don't deserve a thread
Why are ships in UC so goddamn flimsy? It's like one spray of bullets from a MS sends shockwaves through the ship and everything explodes. Does everyone die when the ship explodes? And even if they do survive, they're fucked if they lost the battle, because they just float around and die when oxygen runs out, and they can't even call for help, because the minovsky particles are probably making the radios shit themselves.

Recommend me some mecha artists with industrial/dieselpunk influences.
I'm trying to come up with a metal hero design for a custom to give some variety to my Super Dictator trio.
Gundams do typically have better sensors, and communications than GM types.
The furthest we got to was Mars Zeon, I believe. There's also the Delaz Fleet (the original Neo Zeon) and Glemy's Neo Zeon if you wanna count those. Technically the Crossbone Vanguard is made up of scattered Zeon remnants as well.
In the Patlabor series, the movies and TV series have their own timelines, but it seems like the characters in the movies fit the TV show better than they do the 1st OVA. Why is that?

At the same time however, it gave them all the fuel they needed to justify further action, even without the approval or backing of Mineva. All they needed was someone to raise the banner of resistance, something spacenoids always tended to find cropping up constantly.

Given how information seems to be pointing to the fact we will be seeing Hathaway's Flash animated, I believe we can all assume the Federation gives spacenoids every single reason to want to continue fighting against them given how horribly corrupt the Federation had become by then.

>Enslaving illigal's hiding out on Earth to work in blacksite asteroid mining for resources, along with using them for colony development off the records.
>Using the momentum gained from putting down almost every remaining resistance group to sign in bill's allowing the Federation to essentially bypass any and all regulations regarding the rights of the people.
>Upon capturing the leader of MAFTY, Hathaway Noa, they used the situation to not only trick Bright Noa into issuing the death of his own son, but as a way to blackmail him into resigning from his position from the Federation to finally get rid of him for good. If he attempted to resist, the blame for the thousands of innocents killed by the Federation Congress in Melbourne would be completely shifted onto the Noa family.
>The Commander of the Circe unit, Kenneth Sleg, it basically forced to resign after refusing to break his oath to the Earth Federation charter regarding his next assignment following the death of Hathaway. In retaliation for being betrayed by the Federation, and being forced to kill his ideological friend Hathaway, Kenneth steals the data from the XI Gundam and Pennelope Gundam and begins to sell it off to interest planning to strike back at the Earth.

The only event that is stuck in limbo right now is Crossbone, where the Federation kicked the hornets nest known as the Jovian Empire all to save some shekel's.

Will i need to watch UC and Unicorn to understand this shit?
Well except for the part where it doesn't excuse Operation British in the slightest.

But for some reason Zeon sympathizers are real quick to forget how drop-happy their ideology is, to a point it grossly undermines Zeon as a movement for Spacenoid independence.

At the least it should reorganize around something different, something that isn't militant and easily associated with rampant colony dropping.

that's what I love about Gundam though.

Which decade had the best overall mecha designs?
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.
2000s just because of Seed, CG and TTGL

In terms of just raw creativity I think it would be hard to beat the 70s. It just pushed so many different designs and innovated so many different gimmicks, and was the forefront for a huge merchandising boom for toy sponsorships. To this day mecha owes itself to that era of development, though in terms of merchandise mechs have largely been eclipsed by character marketing these days.
Agreed. It’s what lots of later ones built upon.
Hands down the 90's. In terms of just Gundam, it gave us many great designs such as Gundam F91, Gundam X, a lot of the Wing designs, Victory, etc. You could even batch Turn-A Gundam and G-Saviour designs in there because they were made before the turn of the century.
70s had the most creativity and the 80s just settled down on what a mecha should look like.

This is my first time starting something like this so I hope this goes well.

I'm going to try and make this similar to the groupwatch threads that VF-kun did since his rules were pretty straightforward, so as such:

1. We watch one episode per day and discuss it
2. No future spoilers

I don't see much people talking about Urashiman here that often, which seems kinda weird to me especially since this show was apparently popular in Japan when it came out. I never got to finish it but from what I remember I enjoyed it a lot, so I hope you guys enjoy it too.

Directed by Seiji Okuda (Twinkle Heart OVA, Govarian), this anime tells the story of a young man who, while getting chased by police, gets caught in a cyclone and ends up getting pulled into the future. Having lost his memory, he joins the police force and battles Necrime, a criminal organization, with his partners Claude and Sophie.

Zillion kinda shares some similarities with Urashiman so if you've seen Zillion already then you can expect Urashiman to be the same, somewhat.

I really didn't expect that twist. I mean the plots been pretty gradual so far, so I don't expect to see much of it for a while.
Decent episode. Never been too big on body swap shenanigans but watching Ryu as Jitanda trying to to get to Ludovich was amusing.

Episode 22:

Should've commented on this yesterday, but I like the new animation sequence they added in the OP. It's a shame they didn't do one for when Ryuu's car drives across the screen, though.

Now onto today's episode:
Man...given the comedic vibes this show usually has, I was definitely not expecting Gondo to have a rough past like that...it's sad.

Interestingly enough I think this might be the first time we're ever shown throughout the whole show that Necrime has actually killed someone.
Next one looks like it's back to more lighthearted stuff.

Given they had the gall to attack during a combination sequence you're almost definitely right.
He did. It was essentially 3v1, BUT only on the implications that it was only possible with two allies being otherwise useless batteries.

In other words, if he had actual allies in a real 3v3, his tactics would have been unusable, or so to say, his own machine wouldn't have been so powerful. Notice how he completely fell to pieces when they figured out his genius plan? Imagine if the enemy team knew of his strategy from the outset.

As a previous anon mentioned, Lucas only got by doing hit and run tactics against them 1v1. Imagine if his opponents worked together because Lucas's team really only has one available machine for fighting.

And then there was the ending to the fight, where they go with a straight 1v1, and Lucas LOSES the 1v1 ANYWAY.

One of my favorite series hands down so I might sound biased, but I think it has some of the best CGI in anime.

Yes it was basic and textureless, but the the movement and choreography was some of the smoothest ever produced.
Everything just felt "right" within the context of the show, unlock other more modern CG that still feel out of place.

and Fantine > Liz
I bought the game not too long ago, it's pretty fun.
If they made it online, I'm pretty sure it would get some sales.
The CGI wasn't bad, I'll give it that. I just wish they had done literally anything with the characters beyond the one thing about Rocket George
I actually just rewatched it
It's very "meh" but easy to watch

Could Japan pull it off? Or would it be better to leave to Hollywood or the Chinese film industry? Who would you prefer in the director's seat if this had to happen? Shusuke Kaneko (GMK, Gamera, Death Note) said he was interested in directing a live-action mecha film. Would he be a good fit? Which story or anime would you like to see adapted? Or should be an original narrative?

It's already happening and it's called UC2.
Of course it could be fucking done. It's a war movie with giant robots. It can be done as poorly or as well as the people in charge of it wants. Hell, look at the massive varying qualities of the Gundam material out currently.

Only problem is of what you'd adapt, but Gundam has always felt a bit more free in that regard. More then even Transformers, where all of it's media still come back to the same characters. Just make a new story that sticks to certain tropes and themes, but otherwise is entirely fresh and original.

Coming back to it, regarding the themes/tropes that need to be in it:

>Main character isn't the intended pilot of the Gundam
>Only one Gundam (just works best for a liveaction format)
>Supporting characters have their own units that are good but not AS good as the original
>All takes place in the solar system
>Space colonies
>Aggressive enemy force (I don't even care if it's Earth in the movie desu)
>Anti-war/war is hell theme
>Elite ace pilot on the opposite side with a custom unit who is a match for the Gundam and essentially the primary antagonist

That's all I need. All the space magic Newtype bullshit can be left out or incorporated as they see fit, but it's not a must for me.

>Unfortunately, Gundam doesn't work too well when condensed.
You could take the "A New Hope" approach. Present the universe in simple enough terms (Empire has dismantled forum of public expression and rules the galaxy through fear/rebels want democracy) that everyone can understand the situation and end on a note that makes it feel self-contained and allows for further installments. $40-$50 million budget (Aliens budget adjusted for inflation) so it won't be too much of a financial risk, competent director, fresh faces as the main characters and one or two established names as supporting characters.
>Sounds fairly inexpensive
