With a range up and a boost hammer, he does more than OK. It's the Falken that has trouble staying alive for me.

My Arado ended with something like 200 kills.
I've only played the GBA version, admittedly not in like five years. I remember directly comparing Wurger to OG1 Alt, and Arado just not stacking up despite the similarities. Mobility not quite good enough to dodge consistently, armor not quite good enough to tank grunts effectively, he just fell short at being decent on everything for me and I benched him come lategame when you start getting the good shit.

Yeah that was my biggest problem, he was a hybrid unit that wanted mobility and armor in a game that was tight on money (Late game you got more money, but you also had stuff like Alt Riese, SRX, RKO, Hucke T.III, and the DGG units to upgrade too). Soul of Steel/Mark of Brave patched that up a good deal, but I still felt he held the team back a lot of the time. Might've slapped the Boost Hammer on him, sounds like something I'd do since he was tied to obtaining it.
Speaking of OG2, I'm getting really concerned about how few notifications I'm getting to confirm if I did some of this weird shit or not. I feel like it's going to be my word against the games' when it's time to start unlocking the cool shit.
SRW3 has Char be a DCist the entire game if you don't convince him in the first two times you meet him.

Of course, a lot of stuff changes if you do that.


American mechanic designers feel that it is rare to adopt large twisted silhouettes, protrusions, or symbolic parts.
I have a consciousness that Japanese robots are like toys, but is this type of design not well received in the United States?

because you are watching cartoons you retard, cartoon Jeagers would also be simplistic

The district 9 designs are great though, the special effects studio (weta workshop?) always makes cool shit
No. They are toys for the military.

I know most people hate pic related for supposedly being a writing mess but I'm tired of waiting for a new series so in the meantime i wanted to try G Reco. I heard it's for intelligent people is that right?

Look it up yourself.

People have various discussions about the tech, setting, the motivation of each faction, character, choreography of the combat etc.

I think you have not present during G-Reco airing.

>I heard it's for intelligent people is that right?
No, it just has near zero expositional dialogue so it's easy to get lost in what characters are talking about here and there. Things make more sense as the series progresses but it can be a little muddy without repeat/marathon viewing.

So a friend of mine has taken it upon himself to introduce me to /m/ by showing me as many good mecha anime as he can. So far, it's been a blast, things like GaoGaiGar and Fafnr and the GaiKing remake and older OVAs and films. But one of the things I've noticed, and that I brought up to him, was that in most of the shows, the protagonist was... well, boring.

They weren't bad, per se, not most of the time. But they didn't have any real quirks, their character development was either very basic or flat-out nonexistent, and they all felt very similar to each other. And most of the time, I really didn't care much about them; I remembered the side characters a lot better than anything they did. Even in shows where the overall cast was bizarre or screwed-up, like Gundam 00, the main character seemed to have the least going on of the core group.

Stop forcing standards onto a genre that you don't understand
>wtf wheres the music in my 5 star meal?
Nah, 0080 is the best beginner's Gundam because it's short, it handles the "war is bad" without needing to resort to 70's psychic evolution weirdness, and you don't need any backstory to enjoy it. Even "there's a war" and "giant robots are the new thing" are cleanly covered in the first episode without an infodump so even people who have no idea what Gundam is won't feel lost.
Origin is a prequel that is written for people who have already seen the original.
Watch Aldnoah Zero
Tetsuya Tsurugi was as far as you could get from Kouji Kabuto and that's only from Great Mazinger.

He is simply the most memorable and controversial character of the franchise, almost like a real person.

If brits had land dreadnoughts and aircraft carriers, like in Area 88, then it would be expensive as fuck

Britain sent billions of pounds worth of equipment and vehicles over, and developed new vehicles to better protect against IEDs while over there. The vehicles might not be large, but they were there.
This is still nowhere as expencive as keeping a huge naval (or space) warfare going.

Sweet water never fielded a huge space navy. They had a handful of ships, a few dozen mobile suits and a single mobile armor. All of which could conceivably have been provided by AE, and cost Sweetwater little to nothing.
>a huge space navy.
You just have to own a battlship. It's much more expensive than a bunch of destroyers and frigates.

ZAFT did nothing wrong.

Flay never saw it coming
Yeah, that's always the bit that got me. Fine, you've got a legitimate grievance against the Atlantic and Eurasian Federations. The rest of the planet? They are not your enemies. Don't carpet bomb the whole world with nuclear dampers. Just hit North America, Europe and East Asia. South American is not your enemy, the Middle East is not your enemy, the Equatorial Union (comprising Pakistan, India, and the modern day ASEAN nations) is not your enemy. They did leave Australia out of the N-Jamming, but only because they were official allies. And what the hell kind of message is that? If you're not formally our ally, you're our enemy? When you're taking on literally the entire planet? Yeah, that's not going to polarize the situation and get you so much more violence headed your way.
So you know that we're out there
Swatting lies in the making
Can't move fast without breaking
Can't hold on or life won't change
And let us not forget, there were Earth nations that were recognizing ZAFT's independence. Granted, it was in exchange for the high quality goods the PLANTS were producing but it was still an ally. And what did they get for it?

The EA fucking invades and takes over. And what did ZAFT do?

Fucking nothing. Hell, ZAFT then proceeded to screw over it's former allies with the N-Jammers and Patrick Zala was saying fuck them when he wanted to torch the world. But of course, the show itself cannot mention any of it's backstory because then people would ask "why wouldn't you want to fight?" or realize just how fucking stupid the show is. The show, the goddamn centerpiece of the Cosmic Era, doesn't fit in with the extended universe they were pushing alongside it.
The Atlantic Federation annexed South America fairly early into the timeline.

It's been a long, strange journey, but Big Nova has finally finished the series featuring their namesake. While definitely not fitting into what people usually think of as tokusatsu, Strada 5 is a neat little show that carved its own niche into that big TV landscape. As such, much thanks to all those putting dedicated hours into making this sub project happen.

How does that work? you pilot him in robot form, then leave the cockpit and use him as a gun?

Retarded stuff like that happens with MS names all the time. Blame whatever dumb westerner that came up with these official english names

I've always harboured a suspicion that the Geymalk was supposed to be called the Greymalkin. There any substance to that?
Translations are weird
Not that I know of. There's very little rhyme or reason to certain mobile suit names.

Some sources can't seem to decide the meaning of "The O"'s name. I've read some sources say it refers to the "Theo" , meaning the ancient Greek word for "God"

Another source claims that the "O" is short for "Oberon" (the fairy king from William Shakespeare's play). Which would make "The O" as "The Oberon".

The fact that there is a "Sister" mobile suit developed from "The O" called "Titania" might give the second theory some more credibility. Of course, this mobile suit only appears in SD Gundam video games, so take that as you will
