So, Chroma Squad updated a few weeks ago with a Director's Cut with some new stuff.

And now they've made a mission editor, allowing you to do your own missions! Will /m/ take advantage of this?

For those not in the know, Chroma Squad is a tactics RPG where you control a Sentai Team. It's pretty neat.

So can I finally make my own campaign, or is it individual levels only?
No word yet. I'm thinking it's individual 'episodes', but nothing saying you can't do 'X Campaign, Episode 3' or something.
I wanted to like this game but it's just so fucking BORING.

I want to like this game, but everytime I see :) garbage as a text line, I die a little bit more on the inside.

If she wasn't such a psycho, she'd be the best waifu in all of Gundam, by far. Such a killer body and face, with a cute voice.

After watching 0079, Zeta, 08th MS and now this, I have to ask. What is this strange Gundam tradition of having the worst girl be the main love interest that gets far too much screentime to be a bitch with, and will it stop before I've finished the entirety of UC Gundam?
2 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Because there is no worst girl, of course.
Wrong, Haman is in ZZ. Thankfully she stays in ZZ and doesn't continue on afterwards though.
>Worst girl
Pick one and only one
ZZ is best girl parade

What happened to good super sentai? I mean, I know it’s a franchise for kids and all but back in the day it wasn’t anywhere as lame or as outright gay as it is nowadays what happened? I can’t even think of kids liking this show much anymore.

Cool, really cool.
I think its more impactful for the heroes to defeat the villains when the villains have their own humanity. Its what made the duels from the showa sentai so powerful.
>it wasn’t anywhere as lame or as outright gay as it is nowadays what happened?

Too much power and responsibility falling upon the red. IMO what they're trying to do is get the Reds back to the Jetman-era of where they were ABSOLUTELY the leader but they're failing to realize they're going completely overkill with it by making Kamen Rider-esque power ups,making non-red story arcs and their companions have nowhere near as much relevance to the main plot as the Reds and giving all that importance to a Red character who lacks both the right amount and the lesser amount of focus for them to convincingly grab the viewer.
Abaranger is a good example of this.
he gets cucked later on by space thief
Apparently it's because red toys sell, but then it makes you wonder if it's a chicken-egg thing where red sells more because it's what they show more

I'm curious, has Tomino done any non-mecha shows? I can think of shows that don't have any mechs for other directors, but I can't think of any for him.
Triton of the Sea
Wandering Sun
Star of La Seine

Granted, those weren't directed by Tomino, but he did work on them.
>I'm curious, has Tomino done any non-mecha shows?

His best work ever.
I think this is why tomino should just stick to mechs
Granted he was in a heavy depression when he made it but i don't even think Japan cared for it
yeah but it took place in Byston Well so does it REALLY count?

Almost halfway through Zeta and I don't think he's flown a single sortie so far without getting his wingman killed, losing in a fight with Camille AGAIN, losing a mobile suit or getting otherwise injured, crying, or some combination of the four. Will it ever get better for him? With the whole "blonde """rival"""" pilot" thing I thought they were trying to make him Camille's Char, but he's been so painfully powerless up until now.

Kamille was his what, /m/?


None of this is even remotely true according to his backstory info.

Going off of material listed from Gihrens Greed, along with return of Johnny Ridden. If you happen to have a source that refutes any of this, i'd be interested to give it a read.

They don't detect "GN signatures", that's only a thing in IBO.

Even worse case of crippling over-specialisation that doomed the Gundams in S1.

>Build Strike in CE
Not much, except the RG system is now activated by SEED mode.

ZZ still not an anime. It's toku.

Probably just an ace suit.

If it has the absorb shield and RG, Kira wouldn't even need a Freedom.

So we've all realized after countless threads that he's a whiny man-child. So why is he so admired by everyone and viewed as a "cool/bad-ass" character?

>"New eras aren't built by old people."
>"Newtypes will awaken without me."
>Drop Axis on Earth to awaken all the Newtypes.

>why is he so admired by everyone?
Because he's been around since the beginning and played a major role throughout to the point that his mask is as iconic as the gundam itself.

>and viewed as a "cool/bad-ass" character?
See above. Also because he's the series' "Darth Vader". The enigmatic bad guy whose true origins reveal more to him than just being a dude in a mask that is the go-to hench for the major leaders of the bad guy army. That being said only normies who never saw CCA or blind zeon fantards still see him as an edgy cool guy they wish they were.
I find interesting parallels between Char and Gul Dukat's progression from charismatic antagonist to cool heel working with the faces when he was against the klingons to being so evil as to bang Kai Winn

Abenobashi is well worth your time - the episode where this takes place is /m/-heavy, and the screenshot is the moment the protagonist realizes that.

Did Char deliberately plan for the Invasion of Jaburo to fail by attacking ahead of schedule or did he genuinely believe he could capture the base using the secret entrance and attacking early was the best course of action?
5 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.

Char's sneak attack could only benefit Zeon I mean.
Wouldn't the Zabi's have grown stronger if the Invasion was a success though?

Jaburo falling would have decentralized the Federations efforts across the globe, along with crippling moral across the globe for the Earth Federation. The Federation would have most likely regrouped at Luna II to continue the war, but such a loss would have basically been a deathblow to the momentum the Federation gained at Odessa.

As for the Zabi's, winning the war over the Federation would have only pushed for the inevitable civil war between the Zabi family.

Zeon would have most likely broke into two [possibly three] factions in such an event.

Gihrens Loyalist and the nationalist party on Side 3.
Kycillia's loyalist functioning out of Granada.
Chars Neo Zeon movement which would most likely have been incubated from Kycillia's forces on Granada and the Flannagan institute.
Doesn't one of the Gihrens Greed games have a Garmas Zeon, with Garma, Dozle, and Ral amongst others?

Blood of Zeon

Principality of Zeon [Gihren]
Legitimate Zeon [Kycillia]
New Life Zeon [Garma]
Neo Zeon [Casval]

Dozle does not create his own faction, rather he demotes himself down a rank following promoting Garma to Vice Admiral so he can serve as Garma's second in command.

In the PS2 version, you can make anyone your leader.

Shin Gihrens has a path where Dozle can become Zeon's leader, though he is more or less a puppet for Kycillia.
