What was the deal with this guy?

As far as SUVs and sedans go Japan's been dominating in car reliability
Wasn't he always a cop in TV? He was a fast climber and known for being sharp as a hawk which was why he got railroaded and sent to the boonies by highers up

>the episode where you learn that SVII is half running a subsistence farm to cover budget gaps

It's a fucking crime that Patlabor isn't more popular.
It might also be that I read a shitty sub and they were referring to his previous career in the police...

So what are your favourite super-obscure/barely made an appearance mecha? For me it's the Doberman Boomers from Bubblegum Crisis. They didn't show up for very long but damn they were pretty awesome. Really menacing, a shame there's barely any good shots of them.

Did the mecha genre peak with Mazinger?

When you really sit down to think about it, Gundam and Evangelion and all these other copycats didn't really introduce something new. They just took an existing genre like military warfare and psychology and combined them with mecha.

So I just started New Getter Robe today and I noticed in the first episode many similarities to other anime that I watched- for example, the Getter Beam was ripped straight out of My Hero Academia.

Now sonny, he did get a reply
yeah thats what my friends that love mecha say, I just have shit taste cause I dont like Gunbuster.
Wait, I thought we liked Diebuster? Shoulda used Gundam Wing.
but can someone seriously explain to me why Gunbuster is good? I hated it, but since I wasn't really paying attention- I rewatched it. but I still dont get it. and when I asked my friends they said I had shit taste and watch a video from Demolition D. I still dont get it. Please explain to me why Gunbuster is a masterpiece, or why its good.
I actually never watched Gundam, it seems like the longest mecha series and I can barely sit through Getter Robe let alone 7 long series or however many Gundam shows there are

Who else is a bit thankful Ken Ishikawa died before having a chance to see this bastardized garbage?

Nothing is truly original anyway.
I couldn't get into Getter Robe cause it obviously stole from Gurren Lagann, it wasn't even trying to be original
Anyone else think Getter Robe stole the Getter beam from My Hero Academia? Literally nothing in Getter Robe is original lol
and Getter Robe stole the hospital scene from Neon Genesis Evangelion, like how could you steal from a masterpiece?
It made the drill the #1 weapon (for the first time in a mecha show) and gave it symbolic meaning, but that didn't quite catch on for later mecha shows.

>Not very far, episode 8
Episode 8 is pretty good though.
It doesn't matter whether or not it was. The point is that Japan's emergence as a power player in the tech market came after the worst tensions of the Cold War had passed and was more a result of private enterprise than military investment

Isn't that craze finally dying down too just like battle harem has?

I wonder what comes next?

>olympics soon
probably sports anime?
>Nu Gundam
always assume anyone who uses this term is a newfag
Nah. Unlike battle harems, which after Infinite Statros never had a big success anime-wise but continued being pushed for years just to promote light novels, in spite of generally bad anime sales with a couple of shows pulling mediocre numbers, Isekai actually has had a few successes, like Re:Zero and Konosuba just last year.

Subs for ep. 2, for the sake of completion: https://mega.nz/#!JBcUxQjK!_dFavZpeKMp5qFZjGT1F73r2PIMhbntx9olApd8Rmh4
Episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRFPOF-8kLY

However, there's about zero reason to watch it because the episode is 99% stock footage. Even the "new" scenes are just the seiyuu dubbing over old footage. Ep. 3 is promised to be all new.

Backdraft Mk-III has yet to appear, but a listing for the toy and its support vehicle Brave Jet Fighter have been spotted.

will they be taking questions from the west? There must be enough bilingual anons to help us craft something. What should we ask?
I actually did ask a couple questions, but I'm far more used to translating from Japanese to English and have had no practical reason to do it the other way around, so I'm just hoping the wording isn't too awkward.

It seems like they prefer to answer questions about the Drive Heads themselves over the human characters. And Sasagawa will answer questions about herself. The show is set at the Mobile Rescue Police Headquarters, and features two made-up staff members, so I guess if it's something they wouldn't know about, they couldn't answer it. Which hasn't stopped people from asking questions like 'will X piece of merchandise be released' or about unexplored subjects like who Taiga's parents are.
>What should we ask?
If she's single and what she thinks of foreigners
She's already married btw. To some pro athlete
But she's not married in the show, though. At least it doesn't seem that way. She's actually doing it in-character.

Anyway, questions asked so far:
Ep. 1-
Some three year old asked Sasagawa if riding in the helicopter was scary. Answer was basically yes but she's going to keep doing it anyway for work.
Can the Vipers be loaded into different frames?- Yes.
What's the Drive Heads source of power?- In car form, gasoline for Interceptor and Backdraft, electricity for White Hope. In robot form, they use a super electromagnetic generator.
Will the Mobile Assault Police ever launch a Drive Head besides the S.I.B. Max?- They basically admit to this
What will the movie be like?- All they really say is that the Drive Heads will be upgraded, which is already known.

Ep. 2-
Why does Sasagawa always wear the same outfit for Drive Head Line?- She says the outfit was handmade for her. She went on to describe it, and said that the glasses were fake and had no lenses (although in the show they clearly do.)
What kind of power does the Guide Lightsaber have?- It's also powered by the super electromagnetic generator.
Tell me about Saionji's private life- Basically just saying that he's unmarried and that he and Kurumada were classmates. Which was implied anyway.

Can we get a Mazinger Angels thread going? Haven’t heard it brought uo much. What did /m/ think? It’s ecchi fan fiction trash tier but it is enjoyable and I love it personally.
have the actual mangas (can't read it though) but i can't recall any memorable fanservice though.

guess they could've gone more lewd but didn't for some reason.
Dude! They are practically always naked be it torn clothes by enemies, hot springs, changing or showering. Relook at it and brace yourself for TITTIES (Especially Jun’s hrrrnngggh)
been a while since i've read it so i need to check up again (probably later).

i do remember jun in her "back to the past" outfit.

This is in Corocoro? Seems like kind of a weird place to debut it...
yeah i know.

tigon (tiger dad, lion mom) doesn't have the same ring to it.

hyena zoid (or at least the name) would be a nod to the whole "dog-cat hybrid"
man these shotas always look all the same
Honey badger?
I bet the zoid's name is Killing Bites.
