Hello, everyone, how are you all doing?

I'm fine, thank you for asking.

And because I'm feeling good, we are going to watch all of Ideon together at the rate of one episode per day.

Each day, we'll watch and episode and discuss it in this thread together.

Don't miss out, it'll be the event that everyone will remember 2017 for.

You're skipping the last episode right?
>>
Since you were so kind to put a link to all the episodes, I'll seriously consider watching it alongside this.
>>
>>15769944
Well shit, I was looking to rewatch Ideon eventually anyway.
>>
>>15769944
This sounds like a good idea. The attempted group watch of Dougram was fun while it lasted. I wouldn't mind rewatching Ideon alongside /m/.
>>
Give me a couple hours. There's football on tonight.
>>
Sure, why not? I've been meaning to watch it for a while, so this'll be fun.
>>
>>15769944
I can probably throw a cytube channel together for this.
I gotta bullshit up a new google drive hold on a few
>>
I know it's kinda meaningless for me to say this, as I'm not a moderator, but I'd like it if we could have one simple rule for this thread for people to follow.

Only discuss and post images from the current episode.

For example, since today is day 1, that means only content from episode 1 is allowed.

I'm sure some of you have already seen the show in full, but there are still people who haven't checked out Ideon and it'd be nice to introduce more people into this show without spoiling them on things that might happen later on in the run.

>>15769951
All episodes.

Once we're done watching all the episodes, I'll set up a stream so we can watch the compilation movie and Be Invoked together with live commentary provided by Yoshiyuki Tomino, Gen Urobuchi, and myself.

So, be nice and enjoy this lovely show with me.
>>
>>15770012
>watching the last episode
Just a warning if you haven't seen it already, watching it literally makes be invoked worse, it's basically the first 14 minutes of be invoked and it randomly goes off for the last six, if you've never seen the whole series I'd really recommend you don't watch the last episode before watching Be Invoked.
>>

Thank you.

I can't watch the first episode right now as I'm not on my main PC and it's late over here. I'll watch episodes 1 and 2 back to back.
>>
Never watched Ideon before but alwayd had it on a backlog list. Seems good of a time as any to watch. I really like the book club style idea.

What does the folder name mean? "Reminder to grab UQ's batch"?

I think the guy wanted to grab the SD release from UQ, which is only found on his blog included in the OP.

Check your subtitle settings. If you override the built in style of some subtitle types it'll fuck them up. You should have the translation of the song at the top and the karaoke lyrics at the bottom.

The opening theme is pretty great, isn't it?

yeah looks like mashing it into softsubs fior google drives might not be so doable without rescripting it

You're gonna want to hardsub it for an easier time.

I could never get synctube to work with soft subs back when I tried to setup streams.

It is, and it's on my list of "songs which I listen to as work music", but I prefer the ending.

apparently you can mash srt or sub files into them after you upload it, but it looks like google isn't picking up the code and is just trying to take it as a transcript

Don't forget to cast sneak on yourself.

There's always at least one enemy that aggros to sound in any area.

meh, not too bad

I'll give it a little more breathing room and do it hardsubbed for a while. Still better than what's on youtube.

I've got it uploading to google drives, it should be going on cytube/mog-rog in an hour or so

I'll also start getting the next few days' ready to go too
this will help me to keep up with it each day
>>
hrm... I'm gonna try the youtube split trick I used for the Xmas stream
it won't be much more work than doing it through google drives and if everybody can play along more easily so much the better
>>
>>15769944
Actually I've been meaning to watch Ideon for ages and this is a great excuse to finally get round to doing so.
>>
New to ideon. First ep is pretty alright
>>
>>15770381
It's one of my favorite first episodes, honestly.

It's very rough to say "one episode a day" with it, because it always leaves me wanting more.
>>
second half is upping at the moment

if that succeeds then everybody can watch without needing to install userscripts
>>
so any potato that can run a youtube video has access to it going as a constant loop in HD, better quality on the next ep probably
about two minutes of commercials in-between for bathroom break
>>
Fuck, you guys should've told me earlier, I'll make sure to keep up tomorrow. I really hope this does become a daily thing. It's so hard to watch different anime nowadays since there's tons of this stuff coming out all the time. Having threads like this will give people incentive to check out the classics.
>>
>>15770502
I'll probably leave the first ep going through the second day as this gets out of the gate, or at least until I figure out when the next day happens
ep2 is encoded and is uploading to yt at the moment
>>
I'll discuss this tomorrow. Still watching sports.

I'm gonna try to keep up with you guys, but I'm moving next week, so I'll be a day or two with out internet. Then I'll get Based Spectrum.

Jesus tripfags are such obnoxious faggots

Anyway for everyone else, there is still a revised [EG] batch of Ideon in the works, with improvements to the translation and other things. You should probably wait for that if you want to watch the show.

Okay so I figure I'll drop the previous day's episode in the morning and add the next day's episode in the evening
at the moment it's eps 1 and 2
in the morning I'll drop episode 1 unless VF decides this starts on Saturday, then late Saturday at Sunday if I'm up I'll toss in 3 and so forth

I've uploaded through three, downloaded through six.

Also apparently there's a copy of episode 39 taped off TV circulating, and the ads are on youtube, so when we get there I'll try to put the ads in their proper place instead of just the one toy ad I have

I really hope I can find out more about the ads that ran in Ideon.
>>
so yeah they drop a lot of info in the first ep
there's earthlings moving into space
it's frontier days for them
buff clan already have outposts in place they otherwise give no fucks about
there's an ide

Buff Clan mecha are neat. Is there a relationship between the walkers and the green walker from Future Boy Conan?

>What was the point of this scene?

A scene that adds a little bit of depth to a character. You know good writers do that a lot of times.

>>15770250
>Is that a motherfucking Zeta reference?

Sure is, it's common knowledge we already had time travel by the early eighties.
>>
>>15770853
>Buff Clan mecha are neat.

And at this point you've only seen the tiny walkers and those really shitty... space/aircraft things? Dunno what their name is.

They get the really cool looking shit later. Buff Clan mech design is great, it's pretty clearly all by the same civilization (lots of things hold parallels to other things) and it looks pretty nonhuman-made.
>>
>>15770853

All that worldbuilding is why I like the first ep of Ideon so much. It's handled much better than in A Contact, to boot.
>>
So, judging by how those women from the Buff Clan and that scientist reacted (I'm bad with names), is it safe for me to assume that what Ideon is will be part of the plot of the series?

I'm in the middle o watching Votoms, but this sounds fun.
I was surprised by how brutal some of the deaths are i the first episode. Also, how do the Buff have a working translator for an alien civilization they just discovered?

I got the impression it was a Universal Translator like in Star Trek where it sometimes took a little while to catch up.

You may now start watching and discussing Episode 2.

Okay I'll pull episode 1 later this evening, then put 3 in Sunday morning, and pull 2 later Sunday evening

Ideon really does that late-70s early-80s alien space aesthetic great.

I have to say these initial two episodes remind me a lot of this Bolo book I read about this backwater colony on the absolute rim of Human space that got attacked by a bunch of asshole avian aliens who believed that they were fighting either primitives or the client race of a larger empire and didn't realise that they were just up against Third line troops and units because Humanity was busy fighting a real war on the other side of the galaxy.

If you couple this scene with the one from the previous episode, the Universal Translator the Buff Clan use seems to slowly pick up the language.

Her conversation with Bes is just her replying slowly and oddly, implying that the translator hasn't quite gotten things right just yet.

Just watched the first episode. Iremember trying to watch this several years back, right after finishing Zeta-- for some reason I just couldn't stomach it.

Glad to be giving this another chance. I've heard/read good things here and there, but my ignorant question is why are they vehicles? Why is Ideon even a robot? isn't the Ide supposed to be some all destroying/creation energy/singularity/collective conscious? I know suspension of disbelief and what not, but is there an in-universe explanation as to WHY Ideon is split into 3 vehicles that transform and combine?
>>
>>15774462
>why are they vehicles? Why is Ideon even a robot?

They actually hint at it in the first few episodes - a lot of what the escavators, scientists, and linguists did was "fixing it up". They definitely changed things, which is probably why they look like modern vehicles (especially since most of the more vehicle-y looking bits are invisible on the fully combined robot).

As for why it's a robot at all, because spoilers spoilers spoilers spoilers, but the fact that it came with a giant spaceship should be an indication.

>isn't the Ide supposed to be some all destroying/creation energy/singularity/collective conscious?

Yes and no, but spoilers.
>>
Bes is kawaii
>>
>>15774496
These people are shit archaeologists.
>>
This is going to be hard to refrain from watching more than one episode a day
>>
>>15774830
First time I was watching Ideon, when these new BD encodes were coming out, I only got up to episode 12 because of waiting for everything to be done and because I got a bit burnt out on the suffering.

One a day is a good way to keep you hungry.
>>
>>15771401

So does that mean there'll never be a batch torrent of his Ideon rip? Sad.
>>
>>15774857
Nothing's stopping you from making one.
>>
>>15774859

True, but I was hoping he'd make one himself; if for no other reasons than V2'ing some episodes to make whatever minor corrections he wanted. Where would one even go to find them at this point though?

Ideon TV is fucking garbage.

I can see how there's enough "normal" content that they could bring a tape of clips of a few episodes to show Tomy execs and make them think they're not getting a Tomino tow to a ruse cruise.
I wonder how accurate that bit in those comics is where he bald-faced lies to them about Ideon being about protecting the neighborhood or whatever.
>>
looking at the detail in Cupa's ship getting smashed there doesn't seem to be the extra gore hidden in the frames

Sanrio, too. Those guys actually sponsored Be Invoked.

>>15775234
>Sanrio
didn't they do some artsy stuff or something around this time too?
but yeah, Japanese movies make for strange bedfellows, like that double-feature of that baseball manga and The Legend Of Dinosaurs, or hearing legends of Totoro/Grave of the Fireflies, or the Hamtaro/Godzilla crossover content

I know they've done Kitty/Eva, but did they do any crossover with Ideon?
I want the whole gang as the Ideon gang, like Badtz Maru as Sheryl or whatever

Bess reminds me of Mendou from Urusei Yatsura for reasons I can't quite figure out. Like, his body language and face. Like it's the same actor.

Yeah I liked that line too.

I'm also glad that the Ideon isn't indestructible like it seemed to be in the first episode.

The fuck's wrong with her

So far the Buff Clan has been full of trigger-happy idiots
>>
>>15776576
They're arrogant, heavily caste based and don't seem to care too much about their own people, so imagine what they think of some random aliens.

>>15776579
Yeah but they've got cool ships.

It will be interesting to see if Bes ends up with Karala or Sheryl

Sheryl has more of a tsundere vibe so she could win

Mr. VF, I need a image of a happy Zambo Ace.
Goodnight.

So I'm downloading these episodes and is there any reason to download episode 39 or should I watch 38 then watch Be Invoked?
>>
>>15776980
All 39 episodes.

Then we'll watch A Contact and Be Invoked.

Regardless of whether it is your first time or a repeat viewing of Ideon, the whole point is to watch ALL of Ideon and discuss it together in these threads.

Do you understand, Sheryl?
>>
What's the history behind the phrase "Southern Cross"? It's shown up in a couple of shows that I can think of, most prominently Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross. Did the Japanese just think that the English for that constellation sounded really cool, was it the name of a hit song of the time, or what?
>>
>>15777050
I'm not talking strictly about this watching in this thread. I just heard that the original ending to the show is shit and caused by it being cancelled. Though people sometimes say to watch End of Evangelion instead of the last two TV episodes but I enjoyed the last two episodes too so maybe it's the same here and it's worth watching just to note the difference.
>>
>>15770026
What a load of toss. One thing cannot affect the quality of another thing. Watching Ideon as it originally ended does not 'make Be Invoked worse'.
>>
>>15777234
I'd still recommend watching the full thing and forming your own opinion.

I'm not a fan of skipping anything if I'm watching a show.

Especially with a show like Ideon.

I'm hoping the people who are going to watch this show for the firs time will come out of learning that it's all about the journey, and not so much the destination.

It's just more enjoyable to slowly take your time with it and experience every little aspect.
>>
>>15777234
If you don't watch the final episode you are watching an incomplete show, it is as simple as that. The movie may rewritre the narrative but it is not how the show ended. You'll never know how it ended! It will keep you up at night! You'll go crazy! Tomino crazy! Watch it all.
>>
>>15775463
>From the first episode it seemed like this was the first off Earth colony, but it makes no sense the first colony will be in a different galaxy.

Perhaps the writers are going with the idea that terraforming is harder than intergalactic travel, and that planets suitable for human life (or for whatever level of terraforming is possible) are incredibly rare? That would be the most sensible explanation I can think of right now.
>>
>>15777193
Not sure. It'll be interesting to see if there's anything more behind it.
>>
>>15777234
Just watch the original ending. It's 20 minutes.
>>
>>15777253
>instead of watching this fifteen minute part for the first time you're watching it for a second time likely only a day later
>doesn't make it worse
It does though. I could see watching episode 39 after the movie to see what it originally ended on.
If you don't think watching the same thing multiple times in quick succession doesn't remove a lot of the impact I'd love to have your goldfish memory.
>>
>>15777234
As someone who really like the ending of Eva, and EoE I'd really avoid watching the last episode before be invoked. Sure whatever, watch it after be invoked, but it's frame, by frame the same footage for fifteen minutes and completely killed the excitement for me until they started diverging.

So before Episode 4 watching starts (don't know the time we're using), I feel the need to post this I found.

Tomino really portrays the Buff as extremely unlikable only 3 episodes in. I genuinely
thought he was about to kill all these kids already.

>>15776576
Bes acted like a fucking retard in that scene. He barley met her for ten seconds in the forest, but he is shocked as if he knew her for a long time.
>>
>>15778672
>Episode two's brutality means that an alien being burnt into a pile of ash is mild.

>I genuinely

Same. Before i realized what was actually happening I definitely said "Jesus FUCK, Tomino"
>>
>>15778883

That would have been good for the anime. The sooner the kids are gone, the better.
>>
The kinds of screwups in this show are what I would expect from any real life contact with aliens. Both sides have no idea what's going on and any time either side tries to contact the other there's either an issue with the communication method or the differences in culture fuck everything up. It's funny but scary at the same time.
>>
>>15778920
The kids are there for the kid audience and likely via sponsor demands, can't do anything against that.
>>
I wonder if Piper Lou was put in to discourage execs from watching full episodes on tv.
>>
Wow. Someone with common sense in the Buff Clan? Fucking finally.

>>15779177
This line confused me. In what context does he mean "Samurai"? I doubt it was meant literally.
Seems like a small translation blunder.
>>
>>15779183
if you listen he specifically says "samurai" the Japanese word for a swordsman who lives by the bushido code
>>
>>15779183
No. He literally says "samurai". He says it quickly but he does say it.
>>
>>15778920
They actually have plot significance later on, but I won't spoil it.
>>
>>15779182
Ugh. So many animes do this or keep flashing their titles or laserbeams and it drives me mad.

I'm not having a seizure and I'm not epileptic, but it's still annoying as fuck.

Thanks, Pokemon, for changing that.
>>
>>15779187
>>15779194
Missed that. Still sounds a bit odd that aliens would use it. However I have no knowledge of japanese, so I guess I'm out of my element.

I'd say they're using it in the same way as "Chivalry", which is meaning the honour code they have.

But it'd still be awkward for aliens to use that word, so I'll take it as the devs inserting it so that people watching it understand (until someone tells me that there's better ways of conveying this information. I know nothing of japenis after all).
>>
>>15779260
Basically, it's the equivalent of meeting a race of aliens that act like knights from the Middle Ages, or some such.

Can we watch episode 4?

oh k.

Speaking of, this scene was pretty hype. Nice way to end the episode.

I just love how in these few episodes, first Ideon and now the Solo Ship have been established as these two magnificent pieces of ancient technology that almost act on their own. Ideon is not just a mecha, is THE mecha.

You guys should watch more than one episode per day.

If anyone wants to watch more episodes, that's fine and I don't really mind it.

My only request is that we limit the discussion to "today's episode" in these threads.
>>
>tfw Be Invoked is my favorite movie and I missed this event with you guys

lame
>>
>>15780329
The thread is only watching one episode for day and are only up to episode 4. So you can still easily catch up to watch the rest.

I'm already on episode 10 though because I can't stand that slow pace.
>>
>>15780329
We won't be watching Be Invoked for about another month - there's plenty of time.

"Daddy, why is /m/ actually watching Ideon instead of arguing pointlessly?"

"Because VF-kun is the old man we need, but not the old man we deserve."
>>
>>15780472
To be fair the thread is only discussing the first 4 episodes. There's plenty of time for arguing.

In any case I'm liking this show a lot. And it's not one of the shows that I'd heard of before just a little bit before this thread was started. It's got decent action and a fairly simple but well executed plot (so far at least).

Wait until they show up in the series before talking about them.

You know, as we go through the episodes I'm noticing a few faint similarities between Ideon and SMT Strange Journey.

I wouldn't be surprised if you told me SJ was at least partly inspired by it.

Wasn't the Buff Clan portrayed as the traditional japanese culture (hence the samurai thing) and the Solo's crew as the modern Japan? I've seen this posted some time ago but I don't know if this is legit or some fan theory.

Seems like the fruit or whatever had the power of Ide. Ide itself seems to be the energy source that the Buff Clan was talking about. Therefore, I guess the fruit just contained some of that energy.

Ideon and the Ideship are most likely just full of that energy or something.
