A fun ride and entertaining to be sure, but I don't know if it's something to be called "good".
It seems to be aware of how ridiculous it gets and embraces it, but I've always held the belief that even if something is done in jest, it's still being done. Momoka surviving getting shot, hit by a car off of a cliff with the car landing and exploding on top of her because of her frying pan and Tusk surviving suicide bombing due to a fireproof jacket is obviously a joke, but it's still something that happens.
Embryo getting unhinged after he found out Tusk nailed Ange and how much of a waifufag for Ange he was is a riot.
The Blu Rays having barbie doll bodies also really took me out of it. With the steam and light beams, it's more provocative but with those gone and finding out fucking nothing is there was such a disappointment and ruins any ecchi scene.
>>
>>16638689
MC is probably the only good part of the show, her character development is ridiculous. The rest of the characters are pretty meh tier, but the MC is top 5 female characters of all time
>>
>>16638683
Objectively speaking, Cross Ange is complete garbage.

But the entertainment value? THROUGH THE FUCKING ROOF. It's the finest B-Rated quality you'll ever find.

Cross Ange was kind of all over the place, but at the end of it all, I can say it was entertaining. I was never bored, never felt like dropping it.
>>
>>16638727

Exactly!
>>
>>16638733
Pretty much. It's a trainwreck in pretty much every way (unanswered/dropped plot elements, terrible animation, that one asspull), and yet I was entertained by it too. And Ange is a rather enjoyable bitchy character when the plot itself isn't being pants on head retarded.
>>
>>16638683
The first part of the show where prisoners are forced to fight dragons on a daily basis for cash, and slowly buy upgrades to their mechs would make an amazing videogame.

The Embryo, Libertas stuff, not so much.

I just tried making a webm of the complete scene, but even putting aside that the download I have appears to include a shitty hardcorded sub that's off by a minute or more (probably due to the OP or something) I had to make it in 640 x 480 file size with the absolute lowest quality just to squeeze it in under 3MBs. And even then, only just. I don't think /hr/ or any other boards allow bigger webms than 3MBs either. Jesus that limit really needs to be raised. Maybe I'll just make a Youtube link of of it something.

Yes.
>>
>>16644337

After a bit of fucking around, I used handbrake to redo the video and take out the hardsub but I've still had to make it dogshit size and quality to fit the entire scene in a webm. I'm gonna just make a decent quality one for Youtube instead, and see if I can't give it a dual audio/sub option on Youtube or something. It gives me an excuse to mess about with those options at least, since I've never uploaded something like that to Youtube and don't know if a regular user can off hand.
>>
>>16644441
the site needs to increase image limits too 6 megabytes.
>>
>>16644448

At least, yes. More really. I cannot understand why static .jpgs and .pngs can be up to 4MB, but a webm can only be up to 3MB either. High speed internet is ubiquitous enough, and webms easy enough to not load if you don't want to use up limited bandwidth that there's really no reason to have such tiny file size limits. I'm not even sure what board you'd go to to talk about it though, or if the IRC channel (jeez, I haven't used one of them in a decade or more) would be better. Lots of people have presumably asked about it before me anyway.

Yea, I figured that after a quick look earlier on.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTDmgwToLgQ&feature=youtu.be

Anyway, I uploaded the scene with the English audio but I can't find any option for multiple audio or subtitles on a quick check. I might upload a Jap track with a hardcoded sub at some point, but I honestly prefer how the English dub renders that scene anyway. The VA's really nail the tones, and the script gives a lot more life to things (like Tusk saying they started screwing for 3 days rather than that they kissed and touched).

>>16648671
The same director who said this show let him do things he always wanted to do.
And how the logistics of how side-characters managed to not be killed by explosions to the face was utterly inconsequential because "this is Ange's story so things have to happen for her sake".

He's seriously in the "no one pumps Batman's gas because he's a fictional character" tier and has that level of control over the story, yet he's squeamish a drawing he signed off on is described that way?

It's garbage.

* Director Mitsuo Fukuda had no clue of how to do anime. His Seed franchise is overhyped, overpopular garbage with no real substance at all.
* It's all about bullying amongst women and cucking the shounens herein.
* Flying motorcycles that turn into robots and needed singing in order to go Super-Saiyan; "try-hard" much?
* I understand the need for guys to not be virgins. I really do...

This is like something Fukuda would do to get revenge against the voice actors of Destiny's Shinn and Lunamaria getting married; it's just pathetic IMMHO. Also, Fukuda's wife is dead.

Sunrise show.

Nana.

Female lead so it makes the game look like less of a sausage fest in the final stages where typically everyone but the lead characters of each show might as well not exist in story.
>>
>>16663960

Kind of true to an extent.

Jill's VA wanted her to die on her own terms rather than become yet another character who fades into the background behind the glory of Ange. Fukuda obliged her.

Nana really pushed for AngexTusk, probably because she didn't need even more reasons for creepy otaku fanboys to ship her with Tamura. Fukuda obliged, although he probably wanted this to begin in and Nana championing this was just his excuse to do it.

Hell even during Seed he opted to not kill Kira in the ending because Hoshi said it made him sad.

This. People ridicule it and post the shit-eating meme but it's true. Like the old B movies, sometimes something is vapid and terrible but it's at least vapid and terrible in an entertaining way.

It was, but it got worse over time I think. Or at least it became more jarringly noticable than just slapdash CG transformations or crappy distance imposters. That one ep where they're walking around the corridors of the ship and they have people's faces in semi-closeup taking half to 2/3 of the screen and it's a terrible angular mess.

Just the sheer volume of tease scenes that meant nothing since the was nothing there. The show is unironically more risque when they're covered up by light rays, steam, or clothes, since it hints at SOMETHING being there.
It's always annoyed me, but since CA relies so much on it my patience grew thin.

It's because of all the nude scenes this series have.

you genuinely retarded if you think taht the first half of this show was terrible. by what metrics is that supposed to be true? the character development of both main and side cast ran circles around 95% of all tv features. the world building was extremely well executed and even partially managed to bring something creative to the table. its hilarious how you people have to justify your own preferences by calling something "shit yet enjoyable" because you cant fathom how a show that partially ridicules itself cant be legitimately well made. youre so blinded and influenced by public opinion that youve lost the ability to formulate a single critical thought on your own. end your miserable life or at least stop spreading your mental diarrhea.

They're the dubs. I changed the subs when making the webm, because I thought the dub captured the scene better and made the characters lines sound more natural and combative. I've no idea how accurate they are, but it's a direct transcribe of the dub so I'd imagine it's at least somewhat close.

Exactly. This whole series was about female empowerment. So of course the villian was a man who tired to control women.

Honestly, this whole series was the most progressive feminist thing I've ever seen come out of Japan. I mean, it's also a nonsensical garbage-fire, but who cares? Dragons vs mecha that transform into motorcycle-jets? Fuck yes.
