You guys are just using excuses to post schizo gandamus aren't you?
Not that I mind, keep going
Recently found this in a box of old photocopys from the 1980s. I suspect it came from one of those little freebie booklets that used to come as "sabasu" in issues of Animage, Animedia, My Anime, The Anime, Out or Animec. Does anyone recognize the artist? This would have made a good space fortress in the era of the Roman Romance Robo shows.
I'd like to see mechs which resemble bipedal dragons.
I'd like to see mechs that look a bit like those in Granzordt, but not super-deformed. Y'know, taller. Like this one drawn by Nelson Marty for the 61st issue of the SASHA amateur press association.
Most of those were bot-posts, idiot.

Might be some truth to that. They really are not familiar with christian iconography like westerners are. So the religious symbolism might give them a unique & curious dopamine hit. I really don't know.

I just finished the PS2 game today. It's really fun; I think it's a must-play for any Godannar fan.
It's short and shallow and quite janky. (1v2 fights are always really awkward in fighting games.) I could imagine being very disappointed if I paid full price for it back in the day. But nowadays when you can download it for free it's just a treat.
The gameplay is surprisingly sound and well designed; every character has Gill's Resurrection super from Third Strike, but you can steal meter by throwing, which leads to a kind of interesting cat-and-mouse dynamic. I don't think we'll be seeing it on the main stage at EVO anytime soon, but for casual fun you can do way, way worse.
I think the difficulty is in a good spot. I play a lot of fighting games so I went for hard, and I got what I asked for. The final boss in particular is just disgusting. It never quite reached "fuck this game I hate it forever now" levels but it got close. If you aren't big into fighting games I'd recommend starting on normal. (There are some special unlocks for beating hard mode.)
The game has plenty of special treats for fans; there's a nice amount of new Kimura art throughout and a few small new story tidbits. The big draw of the game is the (semi?)-famous alternative ending, which you can see in the spoilered image if you aren't planning on playing. (Looks like Gou has a long night ahead of him!)
I was also impressed by how much stuff from the show made it in. They don't have absolutely everyone (sadly) but there are some hilarious surprising inclusions like the guy in the school mini robot who thinks if he beats Anna in a battle she'll go on a date with him. He's so weak you can kill him in one hit.

It's not making my best games of all time list really soon, but I'm happy I played it.

Nah, I looked through most of the older images tagged Char_Aznable on Danbooru, it's either not there, or I need a gold account to see it for some reason.

Those are usually loli/shota, probably not it. I can't find it on gelbooru either
Unfortunately, these banners themselves are some of the few collections that you're going to find intact from 2012. Everything else is full of holes from data loss and DMCAs.

Thoughts on Endless Orbit SSX?
The antagonists, save for Mr. Zone and one-offs like the merchant girl, are kinda bland and unthreatening compared to the Mazone from the 1978 series (or the Gamilus in Yamato), but there's still a lot to like about it.
>Tochiro gets to show his relaxed attitude and dry humor, instead of dying as soon as possible (honestly reminds me of my grandmother)
>Gunfights are more elaborate, with Harlock dual-wielding his pistol and sabre or throwing his jacket as a distraction
>Designs and atmosphere are distinctly '70s, while the artwork is very '80s (thin and sharp linework, increased emphasis on shading and shiny metal surfaces, lively explosions and lasers) - the best of two worlds
>Space battles feel like kind of an afterthought, though scenes like the chase between Harlock and Zone's glowing ship give me hope for the remaining 8 episodes
I don't mind the faster pacing compared to the Arcadia of my Youth movie or the '70s series, though I generally prefer the serialized stories over the one-and-done capers this time around.

All things considered I can see why some might prefer this incarnation over the previous entries, just as I enjoyed Yamato III and Final more than Yamato II (the original Yamato is the most "complete" installment so far, but the sequels still have their moments).

While I'm at it, is there any record of the elements that got cut for time/budget, like with Yamato III? (see https://ourstarblazers.com/vault/373/ - this site is amazing)

What's the general consensus on Dimensional Voyage? I read it a while back and thought it was decent. I appreciated how it actually had a definitive ending unlike the classic manga, which just kind of stops.
Like the other guy said, it's not pure Leiji but if you watch his other stuff, it's impossible not to see his "DNA" in Yamato.
You gotta watch Galaxy Express and Queen Millennia, they're slow but they're very good. If you like the Leiji ethos then you will enjoy those shows, just don't try to binge them too fast.
>Prefer Yamato 3 over 2
That's wild, but I get it. I prefer the movie version of 2 where everyone dies at the end, the season doesn't make up for it's longer runtime with unique ideas, instead it's mostly filler. I don't know how I feel about 3, as the only version I was able to find had atrocious subtitles. It was watchable, but it felt kind of like an afterthought. If you somehow found a version with decent subtitles, please let me know.

One difference I've noticed is that Yamato focuses more on the ship and war/disaster than the individual crew members, especially in the sequel movies, while the other Leiji stuff (Harlock, GE999, Danguard) leans more on the young protagonist.

As for Yamato III, I went with the US dub and never tried the Hong Kong bootleg subs.
Supposedly it's less censored than the dub of the previous seasons, though they ditched the established voice cast in favor of the Speed Racer crew because it was easier than tracking down the originals.

I haven't read the source manga, and I rarely watch more than two episodes per day and/or sitting (no matter the show).

I was in a similar boat. I'd gained some weight due to a shitty job and diet. Last year though, I made it my goal to do something about it. I started running again and started lifting. Went from 214 lbs to 156 lbs. Feels good being lean again.

I wouldn't say I feel like I have no energy. Far from it. I run 10k most days and it's been ages since I've felt so alert and motivated. Moving back to the countryside helped too.

But, I want every /m/an to feel this good. I want us all to make it. It just takes like an hour of good exercise a day and straightening out your diet. It's not hard.

You can even watch fun stuff while you run if you do it on a treadmill. Been able to watch and rewatch so much shit during an hour a day on the treadmill.
>156 lbs.
>But, I want every /m/an to feel this good.
At the risk of body-shaming, I personally wouldn't feel like a /m/an at that weight. Any circumstance that forces me back to the size I was as a high school sophomore is something that would probably lead to my death. No thanks. I'll keep lifting weights, sprint-cycling, walking on errands, and stuffing my face.
And if your goal is to provide people with a realistic way to lose weight healthily, running 10k daily and living in the country (where you have to drive for necessities) is not the way. Better to live some place where you're a ~30 minute walk/bike to your job and pass a grocery store on the way. Productively active routines are always better for sustainable weight management than overwrought fitness regimes. If you don't care about health and just want to lose weight, fast a lot and don't move so much that you get hungry.

Anyway, I need y'all to at least try to be on-topic.

Anime drawing books in general? Never seen that book in particular.
Wasn't there one mecha drawing book from the design studio that handles Sentai mecha?
its a mecha drawing book some people here probably had in the early 2000s. it also had some interview and pages dedicated to mechwarrior 4 if i remember right.

Man this one looks funky
Why is chronological order bad? Do people not understand what that means?
Why do we have to suffer your retardation? The story isn't told in chronological order. Viewing it in that way ruins everything about the narrative. Fuck off.
Its a genuine question. How does watching in order of events ruin the narrative?
Stop trolling and get a life.
