i always hear that 079 and Zeta are the definite and best of the Gundam franchise but I frankly think that Unicorn blows both of those shows out of the water.
It has no filler, a strong cast, and it feels like an epilouge to the UC universe as a whole. I honestly don't understand how someone could perfer zeta or the original series over this aside from nostalga

0079, maybe. Zeta? No. Don't even bother with Zetarager memes; I don't hate it, but it's not that good.

Are you retarded this happens in 90% of mecha that isn't about grunts

>and 00 (aesthetic choices)
Where? If you're implicating the unicorn's psycho frame you're wrong, It's nothing like ebikawa's designs and is closer to the stargazer.
"you're implicating"
Hello, Pablo!
>feels like an epilouge to the UC universe as a whole
You know they already announced two series taking place after it right? It 'feeling' a certain way means nothing.

Was Evangelion the first and only mecha show to have good directing?
9 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I don't even know WHY there's fanboyism for it.

Yes, I've watched it. It's currently the only mecha show I've seen and didn't really enjoy all that much.
Probably from the same guy or w/e.
how do contrarians like you cope with life?
By watching superior mainstream anime like Naruto. No joke.

Naruto does teenage angst much better than Evangelion.
Just watch the Sasuke Itachi conclusion episode.

It’s pure teenage angst kino. Perfect in almost every way. How can Evangelion even compete?

Robotics;Notes is basically /m/: the visual novel. It's about huge mecha fans that seek to build a giant robot in real life. That's why it's more a story about /m/ than a traditional mecha.

Some of you might have already seen the anime, which as an adaptation is a mixed bag due to pacing issues. If you liked it, you're bound to like the VN even more. If you didn't, I believe you can still like the VN. A lot of the content that would appeal to /m/ doesn't exactly make the cut either.

One of the things that's really interesting about the R;N VN is that its engineering aspects were directly supervised by JAXA to make it as accurate as possible. It goes really in-depth about the challenges and limitations of building a giant robot in real life and the science behind it. The whole building process is very detailed.

The whole story is overflowing with love for the mecha genre and it's filled with all types of references to the classics. There's plenty of discussion about mecha tropes and so on, and I'm personally really fond of the ways it finds to incorporate those tropes into its own story.

Anyway, a group of fans organized a petition to get the game localized. I know petitions have a stigma of being useless, but in this case, the publishers have actually expressed interest in localizing this title if there's enough demand. So this is actually the perfect tool to show the companies involved that there's a demand for the title. With enough signatures, we know that it will be effective this time.


Please lend us your help, /m/.

In what ways? S;G0 definitely doesn't have the level of polish that R;NE has, which is one of the highest in the series. Story-wise I also think S;G0 falters more.

You get internal monologues for every main character in R;N too, don’t you?

I'd rather get cancer.
I find MAHQ useful mostly for the episode summaries, since those usually include enough minor details that searching them can help in narrowing down the episode something happened in if I want to re-watch a scene or episode for discussion or to make a webm. The Wikia is useful for random mobile suit info, including just identifying one if you can't quite recall it or want to double check whether a suit can or can't do a certain thing. On the other hand, the Wikia is vague or simply flat out wrong on enough things that I'd only use it as a guide and would double check that by watching an episode if it was a debated point. It's Turn-A and Turn-X summaries for instance include mention that neither had all the necessary ingredients to use the Moonlight Butterfly until they met and exchanged or stole bits from each other or something and that's just flat out fucking wrong. I'm not even sure where someone could get that idea from honestly.

So I'm currently watching my favorite Gundam series and after it I was going to watch pic related and I was wondering how much it adds to the series as I'm not able to actually find a good torrent or stream of it outside of KissAnime which irks me. I've not heard anything good about the site lately.
I think it's just courtoom scenes and a recap episode.
It's barely worth mentioning. It's a "movie" introducing a sub plot that latches onto the mid-late story arc about Feddy command suspecting Shiro of being a Zeon sympathizer/spy. It tries to slot itself in between two of the episodes and ends up reusing a bunch of footage from both.

It introduces a character named Alice who is a hardened investigator for Feddy internal affairs. As such, she investigates Shiro for possible treason. Since this movie has to fit into the middle of the OVA, as expected it does not alter the original story or plot in any way. Alice accomplishes nothing other than acting tough and not getting the results she wanted.
I hear it explains the plot connection between episodes eight and nine by showing Eledore's return from leave and the team's issuance of new orders. How much of that is worth seeing?
KissAnime was banning people for using adblockers last I heard
Makes you wonder why internal affairs never showed uo ever again. Where were they during the Titans's rise to power, or all the backroom dealings with Anaheim, etc.

When episode 10 aired I remember people posting that the last two were going to be available tomorrow, on the 20th.
Maybe the sub group knew they weren't going to be available immedietly after these air so they gave themselves 2 days in advance.

Either way they fucked up my birthday present to myself
We're waiting on the incompetent fucks at CR.
Did they post anything about delays?
Maybe they announced the last two will air tomorrow?

Am I imagining things?

Why is Ideon considered Super robot even though it seems quite like a Real robot to me. Examples: Well thought out technology, weak mechs lose to strong mechs regardless of fighting spirit, no pointless weapons or shouting out attacks. I'm not trying to say it would be worse if it was a super robot, just that it isn't one, or at least less of one than other shows, namely Evangelion.

It has the energy source of a super robot but it still can't be an actual real since it's 100 meters and it's a combiner.
Because they're meaningless distinctions that are far too broad for the varied spectrum of robots out there.
>has the size of a skyscraper, unlimited energy, essentially not even a mech but a celestial being, has influence on the souls of all beings of creation, has a conscience
how is that supposed to be real robot?
>I’m not trying to say it would be worse
Well you just did. There’s a lot of anti super robot racism on this site even though it’s clearly the superior sub type by a large margin. Real robo tacticool edgelords will never get what makes a robot deserving of worship.

Would the citizens of Sydney be able to anticipate their fate by watching the skies? Did the colony drop cause worldwide tidal waves, earthquakes, impact winter, etc?
11 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
At least it wasn't like in SEED Destiny where half a PLANT almost ended the world. What was up with that?

The thing you have to remember about the colony is that its a space station and thus not only entirely hollow, but generally made with thin materials.

A colony absolutely would break apart in the atmosphere before it hit the ground. Not completely, but enough that you wont have one impact site but several smaller ones. Its also so huge that the drag on it is going to slow it down a lot. And its just de-orbiting, which means that at most it has its own terminal velocity going for it. Its not anywhere near the same kind of kinetic payload pound for pound as a traveling comet or asteroid, which are moving MUCH faster and are much denser.

A colony hitting the earth wont be like a massive asteroid, but more like a very large plane crash. It will cause a tremendous amount of damage to what it lands on top of, and resulting fires and secondary damage, but its not exactly a WMD and the idea of it creating this massive crater is just people equating all things that can fall from space as working exactly the same.
The crater is at least 500 kilometers wide. That is not a 60 GT impact. 60 MILLION GT might be more like it.
One gigaton equivalent of TNT is 20-times the destructive force of the largest nuclear weapons ever detonated. The 50 MT 'Tsar Bomba' vaporized everything within 14 kilometers of the epicenter, instantly, and could be felt/heard for hundreds of miles.
Then only western Australia would be left habitable, if at all.

Now I 'm sure that when AXZ finally drops there's going to be a teaser for XV at the end. Also what's taking Ogawa so long he's in the opening riding a frog?
IIRC the opening wasn't based on any actual plans for the game's stories just things that it's director hoped to see happen.
That's his ride when he's not looking after Tsubasa
This. At least op movie director said so on his Twitter.
Anyone here still have that image of all six girls in bra for comparison?

That woman should not be wearing white given her complexion. The thumbnail looks like she's wearing a bustier, and even seeing the full image her clothes blend in to well; to the point her shoulders just look like part of the cloth when you're seeing it out of peripheral vision or only glancing at the image. It ruins the fashion because the fashion doesn't stand out.

Same. The original Gundam wasn't even for sale in my country when I started watching robot anime and now I've got tons of stuff I wouldn't have bought from Japan because I got to see it.

Especially back in the early days of fandom tape swapping and group watching was a common practice.
