>Naruto helicopter drag racers!

I’m ashamed to admit I understood that referance.
They're meant to be fired from space, are they not?
I do, too, but you have to admit that the Zanscare Empire's designs are anything but practical.

Never shown, well, yet.

Majestic and powerful mecha-tanks, which is steeper than any super robot? Of course!
Compared to average mecha series it's pretty much a historical documentary.
What kind of weapons does manhattan carry?
A railgun with the range of like 200km+, the ability to manipulate weather, laser cannons, a army of robot animals on-board and a bunch of other shit I can't remember right now because I've read vol 15 a while ago.

You seem to be mistaken. That's not a part of /m/ culture, that's just a shitposter thing. Must be a genetic defect they all share

He wasn't wrong though.

>Sunrise/Bandai approach you to write/design/direct a new Gundam series.
You have a huge budget, and it can be set in any existing timeline or an original one.
There are no stipulations, except that it must have lots of potential for gunpla kits.
What do you do?

Me, I'd create a Gundam Racing series or OVA.

Hey /m/, just gonna let you guys know I'm 2/3rds done with editing scripts or Trider G7. I will likely be done by the end of the month so expect another 70s super robot classic to be ready this Halloween! So yeah, Trider thread. Also what's the story on pic related? You type in Trider's name in Japanese in google images and this pops up quite a bit.

Absolutely based. Cant wait to watch this
current progress, ep 40 is being worked on now. At this rate I will be done inside of a week.

Only eight more episodes to work on, we are 84% done as of now. We're almost done, /m/. Have a Rommel until then.

Just gonna leave this here.

She did. My point was that her abduction happens during the second half of e25, during which shes also rescued. Its an overly dramatic filler arc that doesnt belong. Her death on the other hand marked the half point of e26, with her being resurrected 10 or so minutes later. The reason why none of this works is because the pacing is a complete mess. I know that original Yamato was supposed to be 39 episodes instead of 26, but they should have simply cut some of this shit instead of cramming all these sideplots into the final episodes. Her death itself isnt the problem. Its the execution that it and how it simply doesnt fit the show.
Lance, is that you? Don't you have a second season to be working on?

Naw, you're just salty because you know the stuff you like (Modern mech anime and Toku) is at a miserable decline of quality from what it once was. Fuck, even the games you used to like are shit now.
We've had cyberpunk threads before, you jackass.
Just because there isn't some subhuman shitskin spamming threads about cyberpunk every couple hours for 5 months straight doesn't mean we've NEVER had them.

>The point is that it's a general trope of the medium
you might want to leave your comfortzone because its far from being as common as you apparently seem to think and tends to be almost exclusively used for situations that a) require it or b) make sense in the respective context.
>but that to blame that on tomino in particular is just asinine
how is he not to blame for this? he is directing the shows and its a reoccuring issue in almost all his works? it wouldnt make any sense to not blame him for this since the script and screenplay writers vary from show to show. its his thing, and it goes against everything that the medium is supposed to exist for. even going your route and accepting for it to be a common trope wouldnt make it any better. something being common doesnt make it good, you yourself even made that statement in one of your earlier posts.

wrong about what? his protegees/former employees will talk positively about him and mecha directors will name ideon/0079 as an influence, both of these are obvious. but once you leave that circle the amount of acclaim is thin. among critics as well as people who arent associated with mecha. 0079 was carried by the animation staff, not tominos directing. and thats the only work hes ever received a lot of critical acclaim for. and as far as i am aware: mecha makes up a fraction of the anime industry today.
>>16873123 (You)
also id like to add something here regarding izubuchi and the weight of his words. i might love him for his works, but he also never admitted that rahxephon did get influenced by evangelion. he always claimed for it to be based on raideen and various other superrobot shows, but nothing else. we all know thats a load of horseshit and that hes either trolling or deluded himself into believing that there really arent any links. his public statements are as disingenuous as they get.
>you might want to leave your comfortzone
If you mean the comfortzone of anime, and in particular mecha anime, because no because that's the fucking context we're talking about here. It is absolutely obtusely common and pretending otherwise is just lying to yourself.
unless we are talking battleshonen it is not common at all. additionally, tominos works are supposed to be dramas. ive seen almost every single one of his shows, including the supposedly more light-hearted and comical ones, and i cant think of anyone in the industry who abuses this (very misplaced) tool as much as he does. its particularly obnoxious in xabungle, zeta and gainer. and no, i am not gonna chalk that up as comedy. i dont know what it is you watch. maybe its slapstick comedy a la nichijou or poptepipic, but i personally can not recall anyone copying this style while telling a serious story about death, war, human evolution and human understanding.

this style is something you instantly notice. it stands out way too much, so everybody who watched g-reco will immediately wonder what the hell those lines are being wasted for. that doesnt make greco a bad show, but its still a tool that is only used to appeal to lowest common denominator. i dont see how thats supposed to be postiive.
>only used to appeal to lowest common denominator
So, all anime?

The classic Gridman sets a retail release but the release to promote the new series is P-Bandai? Sasuga Bandai
What's the deal with the one on the right?
Sigma doesn't have his own armor?
Only the double pack with Dyna Dragon and Gridman Sigma is P-Bandai. Dyna Dragon will be a retail release, which is probably the most sensible P-Bandai release in recent memory.
Not even a recolor, but a character from an unaired series is part of the premium release.

Who will be the character he voices?
Bit character, I mean. He never voices someone important.
only if it has 80s guitar dadrock on the soundtrack and female pilots with jiggly big bobies
No rotoscoped gunpla
Lalah Sune would be Amuro's girlfriend, Amuro would be a mix of jewish and Italian, and it would take place on the mean streets of New York in the 1970's.

Good thing I like potatoes.

Anime needs more characters like Gyanko.
Minato should have been the main protagonist with Gyanko and Shimon as his teammates and the co-pilots for Tryon 3. Would have made for a much better show.
