Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays to all. It's that time of the year again and I hope everyone's doing well and enjoying the season.

So as a very special Groupwatch, we'll signal the end of 2018 by watching a bunch of OVAs together all through out the month of December.

The concept is simple, every day we'll watch an episode of something together and give people a chance to talk about it. We'll discuss what we liked, pick apart what we didn't like, and hopefully this experience will inspire people to watch something they may have missed out on.

We'll be starting off with Haja Taisei Dangaioh, directed by Toshiki Hirano. Once we clear that, I'll post the next OVA and we'll watch that as well.

Go watch more before asking this kind of question please, it'd help you answer your own question.

Take beam weaponry for example; it's a staple of Mobile Suits as time passes and generally it cannot be used on tanks because it requires you to have a reactor for the job. Add on to this that beam weaponry tends to equal instant death and that Mobile Suits would continually become more and more mobile as well as smaller and you'd have little reason to use actual tanks against them, along with how, as mentioned before, MS were originally meant for space use. You would get beam weaponry equipped fighters and other machinery, such as the G-Fighter, Core Booster, Base Jabber, and oddballs like the Kou and Ohtu in the far future, but these were still generally outperformed by MS.

If you'd actually seen MSG you'd also know that the Guntank suffered for reasons like this. It carried mostly ballistic weaponry, which isn't a big problem, for the time, but it not only couldn't bring it to bear as well as other MS for a medley of reasons (e.g. torso couldn't actually rotate), but it just wasn't as mobile as other machines either, and usually suffered in combat. Shortly after the One Year War they largely disappeared from development because of this.
>generally it cannot be used on tanks because it requires you to have a reactor for the job
The gundam's main reactor was in the core fighter which is roughly the same size as a modern tank, they could easily build a tank with a reactor.

>but these were still generally outperformed by MS
Because the ms are the main selling point

>Mobile Suits would continually become more and more mobile as well as smaller
They get larger until late uc

>Guntank suffered for reasons like this
It's an artillery piece, not meant for direct fire combat.

There is no in-universe reason why non mechs can't be as good as mechs. They just job so the mechs look good.
I'm not too sure about that first one anon, the cockpit is there but I'm not seeing anything mentioning the reactor being inside of the Core Fighter too. Similarly, I did mention mobility first for a reason, and your last point is a given; we're on the giant robot board.

Who's the worse Red /ssg/, Takaharu or Lucky?
If it has to be between those, it's Takaharu. But all things considered, Lucky isn't a bad red at all. He's actually pretty good.
Both are shit, but Lucky is a bit less shit, so Takaharu.
Lucky rode on a meteor storm for his first henshin.

So far I've got all in-show forms done, as well as PhoenixRobo and SmaphoWolf. Next I'm gonna be tackling the Rider forms, SantaCake, and forms like KumaTelebi and DogMic as better quality images of them arise.

It was on my backlog since forever because I thought it started subtle enough to wait for better moment to savor it.

Turn out I was right and it is awesome.
I knew there was a good idea in it when I heard pretty astute comment in the pseudo-science but I expected to have to 'suffer' the fan-service (poor me who like plot and PLOT).
And in the end it was pretty surprising. Even the episode feature the most fanservice didn't... oh wait there was that stupid gay archetype but if we put that aside, the DANCE episode turned out much more subtle than I expected, even classy when we compare to the norm here.

Stuff that surprised me (after I successfully unsee /m/ spoilers):

- the two "slaves" girl of the Pirate queen were not actually slave, just great followers.
- the GARGANTIA waterfountain is a repurposed shockwave/sonicboom absorber? I approve and I suspect it would work.
- the dance part was played as a background stuff and not overplayed, not too a lot is overplayed
- it was a really good take on humanity taking different path. One side became animals and lost all reasons to do more than act on instinct, thereby loosing civilization. The other side denied human limitations so much to focus on their tools that they became tools following the order of tools.
- the prick who was only here to be a moron and do bad decision actually accepted his error and recognized (some) of his flaw. Made for a much deeper character, getting a better haircut also helped.
- CHAMBER is the bro I never had

>Imagine a Power Rangers adaptation of Akibaranger where Akagi is fucking poser who started watching Power Rangers in high school and learned most his stuff from wikis and plots are adapted to find workarounds like his fetish for robot girls not being from Colon, but a different series they avoid mentioning the name of. Also Hong-Kong tier dubbing of reused footage of humans, people wondering what the best name for localizing plot points and names (Akagi decides his name must be "Reddy" for example), and swapping between the stock footage and new people who don't look like the original while talking about Rangers and Zords which weren't in the respective Sentai series, making a feeling that some of it was filming the production instead of the final version.

My god, do I hate myself that much that even self insert dreams play up negative traits? At least I got the lea role.
Why is RPM the season where at least a quarter of the cast went on to do other things that overshadowed their stint on PR? Like how more people see Rose McIver as the girl from iZombie than Summer, Eka Darville as that recovering junkie from Jessica Jones than Scott, or Adelaide Kane as that girl from Reign than Tenaya 7?

I do the Black Henshin in the mirror in the staff room before my shift starts at work. My boss already knows I'm a dork but if she watches the CCTV she'll doubly know.
I also do the Pilder On!/Breast Fire pose after finishing getting dressed in the morning
When I put on a belt/adjust my pants I sometimes I do Ghost, Fourze, Gaim, Build, or Wizard henshin stuff when no one is around.

When checking my watch I sometimes to motions akin to Dairanger, or just about any other sentai with arm band henshin devices

those are the most autistic things, but I sparingly do it.

The real problem is constantly having random songs from Sentai and Riders occasionally going through my head for no real reason. Right now I have Fourze's theme going on in my head, but usually it's the Toq theme or the Koryu theme

Let's talk about lesser known mecha games.

I'll start with Detonator Orgun for the Sega CD. It's an adventure game that follows the 1st and 2nd episodes of the OVA. Some of the scenes are voiced, but it doesn't use the music from the OVAs. There's a barebones battle system (there are only 3 or 4 fights in the whole game), but you can still get a game over. Takes 3 to 4 hours to finish. No translation.

The game has some meta gags like meeting Smith's ghost. The main plot (if there is something like it), is that they're building Great Gunbuster (first I've heard of it). After you defeat Kazumi, you'll enter its hangar.

Looking at it, it seems to have a glider/booster and a sword?

The PC Engine CD Gunbuster game is an adventure. It comes in two "volumes" (CDs). One bad thing about the first volume is that the game has a stress meter. If you choose ANY choice that is not the right one, the meter fills. Once it fills completely, it's game over. They removed this in the second volume. Makes sense, because some of the wrong choices had quite a few hilarious reactions, like Noriko counting numbers in high-speed.
