For the past year, I've been playing the SD Gundam Gachapon Senshi Famicom games. The first game is basically usurped by the faster-playing sequel, and this seems to be the most well-remembered instalment, but the action sequences are a little limited and the strategy element can become repetitive. 3 is addictive and uses a new turn-based system, but it plays slowly and the RNG is sometimes really skewed against you. I skipped 4 because it seems like more of the same. 5 is a major departure and is probably the best out of all of them. It becomes a full simulation strategy game, with resource management, R&D, invasion and defence. It's very simple but offers a bit of depth when you know what bases to prioritise, which pilots to assign, where to invest and when to attack. It has a really nice presentation for a late FC game too. What are some other /m/ STG games you play that don't get mentioned often? Anyone else put a lot of hours into these?

Probably not exactly what you were asking for but I might eb the only person on earth who really likes Godzilla 2 on NES.
Once I read a guide and got over the rng bullshit I had so much fun with it. A Godzilla game where you play as the military
and have to strategize how you go about defeating the monsters is such a cool idea, I wish we had gotten something similar afterwards.

I've played them all in Japanese now, and even though it's mostly menus you just need to memorise, it is the most text-heavy out of all of them. Most of the messages you get are just to indicate if a unit has been completely destroyed, if a pilot is out of commission, if a pilot is available etc. so those aren't too important (you can check the status of anyone and anything at any time), but you will want to know what it is you're selecting and browsing through. There is a FAQ out there which translates the menus, but unless you know enough to memorise words, it might not be much help.

This is a little like throwing a bottle in the sea, but here it goes.
When I was a kid, around 2005/2006, I bought a little mecha toy in a shop in France.
The design in my memories reminded me a little of the psycho Gundam, though I don't think it was it and it's still pretty vague. The color palette was similar too, as I remember it being a bit bulky, having some yellow details and mostly being either black, dark grey or dark purple.

The toy was pretty small, and made in some kind of metal, it barely had any articulation
I don't think I have it anymore, and it's being almost 20 years, so I struggle where to find. I don't remember it's name or the brand.

So if you anons could help me, many thanks. I can't say if it was an actual mecha from a show or just a toy/bootleg.

It was a single mecha in the box so It can't be it, I have a vague recollection of that.

I don't think it had wings, only some kind of backpack, and I don't remember any red on it
>>22644018
was more bulky than this
>>22644103
I don't think so, it didn't had any sword or wings + I don't think they ever did a small toy of Dancouga
>>22644283
I don't think it was an older toy, it still was sold in the early-mid 2000s and I remember the box not looking really old. I do think it's more likely it was a bad guy then.
When I mean more blocky, I mean it more "gundam-like", if that make any sense. >>22644297

Hmm. Interesting. Early-to-mid 2000s... and I assume it wasn't from Transformers?

Also, if it was early-to-mid 2000s I wouldn't expect it to have a lot of metal -- unless it was a pretty darn expensive toy.

>no luck yet beside finding back my favorite Bionicles I thought was sold.
Well that's a win right there!

I'm thinking a Super Sentai/Power Rangers robot seems likely. but if it had no red AND no blue on it, that's gonna eliminate most robot toys right away. Google these and see whatcha find, OP:

Providus (aka Transwarp Megazord)
Time Shadow (aka Shadow Winger)

>>22650795
I don't think it was a Transformers, I won't like that I don't know much about the franchise, but it wasn't transforming in anything (Similarly, it likely can't be a machine robo/Gobot due to this.)
I don't think it was costly, so it was likely something similar to metal but not exactly it, there's plenty of similies. But I remember it wasn't regular plastic, because it has some weight.

I also know it wasn't a Megazord, because I already had a shitload of those thanks to my brother.

I was going to say the reissue of the g1 insecticons back in like 2009 or whatever, but if u don’t think it’s a transformer then idk. Plus those didn’t have much red, just a couple of red stickers

Arc should've been great. It had every advantage in its court (outside the CGI) & it still missed the mark. I'm so heart broken. Could you describe getter robo arc as the perfect example of wasted potential in all of super robot /m/? Personally, i'll say its up there among top 5. Nothing comes close right? For example, Getter emperor's first anime appearance deserved so much better than just this.

"Arc was shit because it had no budget" is untrue. I don't see any hard numbers here but low budget doesn't explain the awful sound effects, the pointless rewrites to the script, the terrible storyboards in most episodes, or the awful new non-ending on top of the original cliffhanger.

Yes, it was a low budget anime. You don't use Studio A-Cat, and certainly not as your main team, unless you have no money. But Jun Kawagoe is a veteran mecha anime director, he should have had better control over his production.

>>22648210
Arc had no advantages. As a story it's incomplete, we have no way of knowing if the story was 33%, 50%, or 80% complete when Ishikawa died. The anime's writer, Tadashi Hayakawa, was completely unqualified for such a task. For reference, he's the writer of Mazinkaiser SKL and Kotetsushin Jeeg. If you liked those anime fair enough but Getter Robo Saga deserves better. Jun Kawagoe, the director, doesn't have any ideas either. All his Getter animes end with "And the battle continues!".

With the team and budget they had, they should have done an original, dumber, story. No expectations to complete the Getter Saga.

Almost everything about the anime's changes stunk. Adding filler content and removing fight scenes from the manga. Only using Getter D2 and not the full D team, adding Getter Tarak as a tie-in to SRW's plot about Emperor cloning Getter pilots and giving them black Getters. Rewriting the ending to force the Getter team back to Earth so they can speedrun the cliffhanger and then end on an awful new non-ending. Using Saint Dragon as the design for Shin Dragon. None of that is due to the low budget.

Takuma, Kamui, and Baku floating through space felt like the halfway point. There were hints about Baku's family that were never explored. Ishikawa wasn't directly involved with New Getter Robo but he was consulted so I wouldn't be surprised if the time travel plot was based on some ideas he had for Arc.

I didn't say Arc was shit because it had no budget, I said Arc was shit and it got a shit adaptation in response to OP crying about wasted potential. As I said, there was never any potential there to begin with. There's no reason to look at the hard numbers to know it had no budget. One just needs to watch the show to get truth.

According to the description:

>"This is a talk between Toshio Suzuki of Studio Ghibli and film director Mamoru Oshii on the film “Avatar” after Oshii's declaration of defeat.
Other participants are Mamoru Oshii fundamentalist and writer Mabai Noda, “Sky Crawlers” film producer Tomohiko Ishii, and “COMIC Ryu” editor-in-chief Shuichi Ohno.

Director Mamoru Oshii declared defeat against James Cameron's “Avatar”.

Toshio Suzuki and his colleagues are discussing what kind of film they would like Director Oshii to make in the future in order to win over Director Cameron."

There's sadly no automatic captions, but I'm curious why Oshii was so impressed by Avatar at this point in his career considering he directed Ghost in the Shell, Patlabor 1 and 2, Jin Roh, and other arguably better movies. Even the Japanese comments seem to agree Avatar was just a mediocre movie with good CG and superior funding from the US, so it all just seems out of character.

That's the biggest loss here, a real shame.
>I'm say Oshii SHOULD belittle the japanese film industry, every director should. The French New Wave only happened because people were willing to speak out and make something good in the time when their industry was bad. They had a model (the golden age of Hollywood) so it was easier, but the principle is the same
Yeah but speaking without doing any changes would just make Oshii sound like an out of touch old man, his prime years are gone and his major contributions have already been made, if anyone is going to "change" the industry for the better it'll be younger directors with fresh ideas and a creative hunger.
I mean Tomino praised KnY and One Piece, but I doubt he spends too much time watching anime anyways.

Off the top of my head, the scene where Kouji slaps Ikki in the local tournament. The original (ep 11) has Ikki standing, he looks up towards Kouji who says nothing, gets slapped dramatically by Kouji knocking Ikki on his ass, the crowd stares in shock, and Kouji shittalks him while he's down. The dub (ep 9) has Ikki standing, looking up while Kouji tells him Ikki disgusts him, cuts out the slap entirely, the crowd stares in shock, and Ikki, who was formerly standing, is inexplicably knocked on his ass lying on the ground while Kouji shittalks him some more. The English dub does way more than censor scenes, going as far as changing dialogue and reordering every episode.
