This game is the /m/ ultimate test for anus clenching test, if Gundam had a game in the 90's for PC before the Dreamcast game, it would had been a Terra Nova clone + HG1 having a baby.

the original trailer was tits

Hence why if Gundam had a proper game in the 90's it would had been Terra nova + Heavy Gear 1 having a baby

you're in earth fighting zeeks, then titans happen and you join them, later on you betray them join the zeeks, in the end you have to chose between earth or Zeeks in the final battle

Terranova was an excellent game. Too bad it never got that multiplayer upgrade.

That game got a fan-made PC "port" a while ago. Allows you to play all other combat vehicles on the field one after another.

It feels off? How?

TV series is just a different story about how the same group of people started their first day with their new Ingram labors. It's not like it doesn't make sense without the first OVA?
>>
>>16607564

There's no reason you shouldn't be able to start with the TV series. The only real difference is that both needed to establish the premise in their first episodes so the introduction and Kanuka's arrival are done differently but from how everyone acts there really may as well not be a split at all. You could watch TV episodes 1-20 and then catch OVA episode 3 and not even realize they where different timelines.

>>16607077
Sigma is actually more faithful to the novels than the anime, though DVMC arc is placed out of chronological order
>>
>>16607077
Sigma is near 1:1 adaptation, the anime is also very faithful but is a bit different than the novels/sigma. Both are worth experiencing though. The novel author is also writing the anime scripts so he's changed a few things around and added original elements that weren't present in the novels/manga.
>>
>>16607255
Game is also 1:1 to the novel, but has some slight additional dialogue additions and fight events.
However once you are in newgame+, you get several choices to different endings, including one where Nami lives.

If you go novels, just be warned some of the fan translations are very rough.

Old toku is exceedingly less cringe than modern toku. It's the CG which really puts the shows fully into "you have to be a literal child to enjoy this" completely, which is where the cringe in toku comes from.

Greetings /m/, I come bearing gifts! I just got done timing and double checking the official subs for the first two Operation Meteor OVAs which cover the first half of the Gundam Wing anime, OVA1 Odds from the perspectives of Heero, Trowa, and Wufei, and OVA1 Evens from the perspectives Duo and Quatre, along with select scenes about Relena, Zechs, Noin, Treize, and Lady Une.

I'm currently hard at work on the second half of the OVA which covers the second half of the series, although since this is the first thing I've ever watched of Gundam Wing I might take a break to watch the series first, as this has actually got me interested in the show, and once it's all done I'll create a batch torrent with the final versions of the subs muxed in with better raws.

With that said, hope you guys enjoy, and if you notice any errors please be sure to give me any feedback so I may correct them.

ok

Now that the DVDs have been out for several months and a rip has been available on nyaa for almost a month, what does /m/ think of Great Mazinger? Is it good? Is it great? Is it better or worse than Mazinger Z?

I haven't heard many thoughts on the series in general, so I'm just curious what people think about it.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
>>16607137
Fantastic! But we need rips with the episode previews.
>>
>>16607174
Well in fairness the garbage xPearse rip still has the episode rips, just in a different folder and not at the end of the episode.
>>
>>16607137
I've watched up to episode 34 using /m/subs and i've started watching the rest now.

Honestly, I prefer Mazinger Z to great; Sayaka and Kouji had much better chemistry and were generally more interesting. Tetsuya is dull. He's a combat autist and nowhere near as fun as Kouji was. Jun is nice to look at but nowhere near as fun as Sayaka was with her fieriness and arguing. Shiro is just sort of there. The villains were much better in the original, with the play between Hell and his underlings something absolutely fantastic and fun to see. The Institute Fortress just isn't as good as the Photon Labs and, in addition, the fact that it's in the water means that we nearly always have a fight that's in thr water at some point. This just seems a bit dull in a way the fights on land weren't. Furthermore, that fucking crow is back as a regular character and I really don't know what made them think it was a good idea to do so. Futhermore, in Mazinger Z, you got escalation. Kouji had to learn to pilot his robot, it got upgraded, the whole 'Mazinger Z must fly' arc was great, for example. The scander launch was also great. Here it's just meh.

On the plus side, Boss is still Boss, Jun and Venus A are cute, Marquis Janus is a really fun villain, especially when she gets her own corps of elite troops. I'm hoping Dr Hell's return will spice things up a lot. Overall, it's pretty solid and fun enough to watch, but it's nowhere near as good as Mazinger Z felt.

>>16607170
That's a very interesting point; I felt that the animation was on the whole less janky and better than the original series, but lacked a lot of the experimentation and variation of the original. The fact that so many fights happen around the institute and such doesn't help either. Mazinger Z had forests, town, the plains around the Institute, mountains, sea, aerial battles etc.


>>16607270
>>16607174
I just grabbed the DVD isos. Ain't got time to fuck around with xPearse's autism.

>>16607304
If you don't mind me asking and doing a bit of spoonfeeding, where did you grab the ISOs? I'd rather not watch xPearse after his terrible job on the Mazinkaiser movie, but I haven't found the ISOs on nyaa. I don't have bakabt or animebytes though.

Well, I have bad news because it was AB.

Is it wrong that I enjoy Shadowcell's grimderp rewrite of Destiny a lot more than the original trainwreck?

Yes, because the author is a deviantart-using, horse-fucking, CE-enjoying fag. That being said, I don't have a shadow of a doubt that it's better than Destiny, and this design here is far cooler than a machine designed by a brony deviantart user has any right to be.

And then Amuro retains his growth in Zeta and CCA unlike in a lot of sequels where the characters just backslide into their original personalities so they can tell the same story again

I agree with that. I've only seen 0079, Zeta, ZZ and the mini series, so perhaps that's why I don't get the full scale of it.

No they don't. Char always wins the polls in Japan for most likable character and Quattro comes in like 5th.

Where do the Fin Funnels store their Fusion Reactors?

>>16607078
It's magic.
Just like each Core Fighter and MS are supposed to have a invisible miniature Minovsky particle generator somewhere inside the mechanics.

>>16607078
They use a generator like the rick dom's beam bazooka, not a fusion reactor.

>>16607124
Nu's fin funnels lasted longer than normal funnels because they were technically bits, which have their own internal power source. The only thing it needs to connect to the MS for is to refuel its propellent and maybe recharge it's e-cap.

>>16607127
Generator and reactor don't mean different things in this context.
