Got damn. I need an Aki in my life. D boy lucked out & its deserved. She has a pretty bland personality & characterization but something about her just clicks. She's a loving waifu of the most important factor. To top it all off... she became like a mother to our dear D boy takaya.

They are lovers so it was not rape. Yes D-Boy became a retard during that time period but he was still aware of her feelings.

It's still rape even if you're married.
Rape is when one involved party does not or cannot give consent, even if he was aware of her feelings does not mean he was in a state capable of giving consent.

its a flashback to the praga events , as for the clip where a solteka gets wrecked many years ago some anon with the skills " moonspeak reader" and " tekkaman conneisseur" alleged that there was some script leaked in some magazine or interview that detailed this:
>missing link was supposed to be a pitch for a whole ova series
>the main plot was the second wave of radam invaders
>aki gets the manmade tekksetter treatment and becomes enough of a tekkaman to be combat capable, but lacks flight and voltekka
>since D-boy is kinda retarded , radam easily control him and take him back, do a tune up , Blade loses the Blaster mode but also regains enough brainfunction and gets the slight change in desing
>primary bodies start to migrate to where the radam were beachheaded on earth protected by blade , more like a suggestion rather than full on mindcontrol , aki mingles with them and pities them
>earth gov says fuck this , bombs the place
>final order to blade from the radam was to selfdestruct , and some sort of blackhole manifests ,Noal goes in a prototype soltekka II ( the one that can shoot some sort of voltekka ) , ejects and sets it to self destruct to try and disrupt the black hole thing, fails
>Aki and Blade fight of there and somehow aki manages to beat the mindcontrol bug and almost kill Blade

this plants the idea that the primary bodies are a latent threat to earth unless they are fully isolated from Radam influence or fully tekksetted, also helps to explain that the Prague incident was because mind influence, this time the military said fuck it and nuked the place .
this is the time when the military dissapear Noal

there were also 2 light novels that explained stuff after TBII, some sort of alien tekkaman lands on earth to learn how earth managed to get rid of Radam , and something about some plant life form or something , if i recall those were called
crystal palace and virgin forest or something like that .

yes , i didnt worded it properly , the praga thing was a proper uprising and the missing link stuff was more of a 5th column mobilization.

>fire projectiles
Sol Tekkaman 1 and 2 use fermion antimatter weaponry. A crude imitation of the voltekka.
They don't use projectile weaponry. Those back-shoulder pods were scatter shot pods, basically fermion suppression flak fire.

>>22478558
>LIterally who?
Mikhail was the insane cultist leader and centerpiece of the Prague uprising that wanted everyone to get themselves fully teksetted to achieve 'enlightenment.' Aki transformed and murdered the guy in cold blood and in full public view to try and break morale and get everyone to disperse, so the military wouldn't fire their nuke.

David Kügel, aka the later Tekkaman Sommer was in the audience as a young teen that day.

Prague rebellion was caused by a Tekkaman cult, lead by Tekkaman Mikhail ( her name only shown in the design artbook ). This is a fusion of a Tekkaman woman named Frail and an Alien Tekkaman.
Aki's plan was to shutdown this rebellion by killing Mikhail, basically waging a war. Government's plan was to nuke Prague and kill everyone there. David and Dead End were the sole survivors.

It was *meant* to be explained in TB 2, for which the writing crew was doing a fuck lot of world-building. But then the suits&ties decided to no-sell on the budget that had already been promised to the series and they were forced to gut the thing into a six-parter direct-to-tape / direct-to-disc OAV.

In the archive book for Tekkaman Blade, it was explained that The Missing Link was just a trailer they made to promote the sequel to the TV show, takes place 2 years after the ending. It was not something they planned clearly in term of contents and never properly explained.

For Frail/Tekkaman Mikhail, the Japanese wikipedia of Tekkaman Blade 2 gives this info, probably from the description of the DVD box. Basically just random ideas from The Missing Link, retooled into Tekkaman Blade 2.

She was a genius scientist who also happens to be insane, that's it. Beside some concept arts and few seconds of animation, there is not much to her, as Aki killed her in the flashback of TB2
>>
>>22480545
I just want Tekkaman Blade in another SRW. It'd be interesting to add in Missing Link instead of TB2. And be able to save Evil and recruit him. I've always thought Mospeada's story could tie in well with Tekkaman Blade, particularly the Green Earth arc fighting Axe could interweave with the Mospeada's travels to Reflex Point. And the Inbit have a Radam-like appearance.

It's just the best design.

My theory is the Tekkaforms were subconsciously designed as they were being reformatted in the Radam pods. That's why Blade has a bit more mechanical look compared to the more organic designs of the other converted Tekkamen.
>>
>>22480580
The Green Earth arc could also fit well with King Gainer and the roving exodus caravans.
>>
>>22482399
Short for Dangerous Boy. Originally named such by Noal because Takaya / Blade was fucking off-the-wall unhinged levels of reckless.

>>22482594
Tekkamen are basically alien Riders, so that reference in the SRW W dialogue by Horis is actually spot on.
>>
>>22482627
That's part of it. The other part is it's because Blade's formatting is incomplete.
Remember; his dad was rejected by the process and spat out of his pod half dead, and with his last breath managed to wrestle Takaya out of his pod before he was fully formatted and before he could be outfit with a mind-controlling parasite like the others.

Instead he just goes nuts after 5 minutes or so, because being in his transformed state saps him of a lot of fortitude to the point where he can no longer resist the influence of the mental link shared between all Tekkamen. It's the same fatal weakness that gets retapped in Missing Link when his vegatative state makes him even more susceptible to being controlled.

A large part of the offscreen training in TB2 that he undergoes together with Yumi is fortitude training, both physically and mentally. Which allows him to keep himself in his transformed state without succumbing to the influence. Why Yumi specifically? For one because the training is reciprocal and she needed some strengthening herself. Mostly in the confidence departement to wield the Reactor Voltekka and control it without freaking out. But ultimately, it's because of the Reactor Voltekka itself: It's probably the one thing that could have put Blade down if he actually *would* have lost it again.
>>

And Blade was "claiming" amnesiac so couldn't provide his name at the time.

>But ultimately, it's because of the Reactor Voltekka itself: It's probably the one thing that could have put Blade down if he actually *would* have lost it again.

Keep in mind: the show actually does hint at this.
When Blade is finally back in shape and faces off against Dead, Yumi uses the Reactor Voltekka to create an arena ring around the two.
For Blade's own training she would've basically just put him into a fully-enclosed Reactor Voltekka containment box. The perfect anti-Tekkaman jail-cell. Blade would be able to lose it, but he'd have no way out of it to go on a rampage and basically he would be stuck until he runs out of juice, loses consciousness and knocks himself out, and automatically detransforms.

Blade has a 30 minute time limit before he goes berserk. That is part of not completing the Tekkaman reformatting. But nowhere is it claimed that it's due to Radam psychic link. When Evil purposely drove Blade over the time limit, Blade just sees everyone as an enemy, and Evil retreated the Radam forces to let Blade rampage. In Missing Link, yeah, D-Boy's reduced mental capability is what let's the Radam link to overwhelm him and try to use him as a bomb to destroy Earth. But Missing Link isn't canon.

Blade just does training with Hiver to develope the Voltekka Crash technique, which is close to Evil's Psy-Voltekka technique- both can absorb the opponents Voltekka and redirect them. Nothing really to do with mental conditioning. It's not really stated, but implied that Blade is no longer under the 30 minute time limit in TB2.

Blade was also in his primary body form during the months back to Earth. He didn't complete the transformation into battle mode until he got the Space Ring and started tearing shit up in episode 1.
>>
>>22482770
>He didn't complete the transformation into battle mode until he got the Space Ring and started tearing shit up in episode 1.

Tbh that whole fucking plotpoint was full of holes. D-boy supposedly drifted for ''half a year'' in an escape pod, (or at least that was stated in an English version) and somehow didn't starve or died of thirst.

>>22482786
Because he is nolonger human.
>>
>>22482794
He was still human though. That was the whole point.

>>22482655
The whole Blade vs Evil was a direct homage to Kamen Rider Black, as well. Tekkaman are human turned into alien monsters similar to how Showa Riders are kaijin with a fancy appearance.
>>
>>22482750
>>only after getting his crystal broken and needing pegas to tek-set is that we learn that he has a time limit, possibly due to the cracked crystal , because before he managed to be months tek set without issue , other than exhaustion

Also it's episodes 4-5 that discusses his time limit- he retreats battle early in 4, leading everyone to think he's deserting battle, which leads to Aki getting injured. Episode 5 D-Boy tells Milly about the time limit (because she reminds him of his sister), which is good since she was subbing for the injured Aki.

Episode 6 is the shattering of the tekset crystal.

I think that's a bunch of bull. Yeah, Black is popular and there are similarities, but brother versus brother is an old ass tale. I've seen that theory, but I think it's just someone connecting dots because they saw both Black and Blade and thought they were similar enough that it must be a homage.

Furthermore, rape in a garbage unnecessary OVA that was supposed to be a trailer for an OVA that is arguably even worse. I'm starting to suspect you faggots (or maybe single faggot samefagging, who knows with this shitty board) are the ones in the last TB thread defending the dogshit that is TBII. Again, I ask that you take your retarded contrarianism to a Gundam thread instead of trolling in a thread about an actually good series, thanks and fuck off.

The original Tekkaman's transformation is pretty fucking metal. Getting wrapped in barbed wire, then electrocuted until metal bonds to your body so you can fucking Space Lance is hardcore. Otherwise, kind of a meh series. Great theme song, though.

Literally as old as Cain and Abel. (Which is possibly why Shinya/Evil is called Cain in the dub.)
>>

>>22482794
Him no longer being human is not the excuse. That doesn't track because his Tekkaman form burns up calories like a motherfucker. After having spent time transformed D-boy has to wolf down enough food for an entire table's worth of people, just to prevent himself from being lethargically low on energy and unable to do fuck-all. It's an early plot point that sadly doesn't get revisited once rations are low when the Space Knights are stuck trekking across Earth in their Green Earth convoy.

Remember; this was one of the Argo's original escape pods meant for humans. Those things were meant to be able to drift in space for a long time and keep their passenger safe and alive. So a more likely explanation is something like suspended animation. Possibly drug-assisted. Humans don't really need to eat much to stay alive if you can just shove a needle into them and dripfeed them small amounts of glucose while you keep them in a fake coma with half their brain offline.

The similarity is how one of the brother was brainwashed into being evil, and both brothers physically mutated into insectoid warriors. This is literally the plot of KR Black.

It is a bit of a plothole. I figured the Primary Body conversion links them to some quantum power source that gives them life support while transformed. Primary bodies are supposed to be hosts for just Radam brain bugs, after all. The Tekkamen are enhanced combat forms to subjugate their home planet. So maybe the Primary Body that Blade was in during the months long trip back to Earth sphere was sufficient to keep him alive. And turning into the combat form is what burns up the hosts energies that Blade needed to scarf down all that food. But we never see the other Radam Tekkamen need to eat, and Omega can't return to human form- he's stuck in his tekkaform. And we also never see Blade eat as much after that first scene. It could be like how Blade and the others don't lose their clothing after transforming later on.
>>
>>22482867
Yeah, but again, one brother being brainwashed into evil is not a unique plot, nor is being mutated into insectoid warriors. Outside of those two things, there isn't much to connect Black to Blade. Well, maybe that both sons are trained in sciences and sports, but that's also most transforming heroes.

Neither Blade or Evil are being groomed to lead the Radam. The Radam are nothing like Gorgom. There is nothing like the Three Priests, or like Creation King. Black and Shadow Moon are not even related. Conversely, there is nothing like the Space Knights, Aki or Noal or Freeman, in Kamen Rider Black.

>Yeah, but again, one brother being brainwashed into evil is not a unique plot, nor is being mutated into insectoid warriors.

But when you combine of these together and put them in henshin hero genre, you got KR Black.

>Neither Blade or Evil are being groomed to lead the Radam. The Radam are nothing like Gorgom.

Evil was Radam's strongest warrior at the time and chosen to be that by the Radam. Tekkaman Sword even called him as Ebiru-sama. And you know what Radam and Golgom have in common? Kidnap people, turn them into monster and brainwash them. Basically just Showa villains, but with the Cain vs Abel plot, you got KR Black.

>>22483110
>Evil was Radam's strongest warrior at the time and chosen to be that by the Radam.
If anything, Evil is closer to Bilgenia, if you wanted to compare to Black villains.

>Tekkaman Sword even called him as Ebiru-sama.
Because Sword recognized Evil was higher up than her... but not higher up than Omega. And Omega is no Creation King, since Omega is also just the head of the Earth invasion army, not Radam itself

>And you know what Radam and Golgom have in common? Kidnap people, turn them into monster and brainwash them.
Like you said, just like any Showa villain organization.

Superficial similarities doesn't mean direct influence. I'm sure, because of how popular Black was, and in general the transforming hero is, that there might be some inspiration. But to say Blade is a direct homage to Black because they both use generally popular tropes is a poor take.

we do , its part of the catch every tekkaman he fights was part of the Argo crew, and that was comprised of his family and close famili friends: brother , sister, aniki , aniki´s GF, mentor figure, father , and cant remember daggers exact relation , but mostly every other rando in the Argo got digested after beign rejected thats the whole " whipe your tears behind the mask" motto.
i think thats the most grueling part of the whole series that makes it stand apart so much ...

If my partner was severely brain damaged I would be fucking crazy to fuck her in that state, it's just not right to have sex with a person like that.

Aki was crazy, so crazy she really thought fucking D-Boy would snap him out of his condition.
>>
>>22483738
This is the first time you've made a good point about this. Yeah, it would be fucked up & wrong to screw your significant other like that. But d boy not being female & all doesn't feel like he's being fucked against his will by his girlfriend. At the same time i guess d boy wasn't really cognizant of the situation of what's happening. But the way that anon framed this scene as "aki got damn fucking raped d boy, guys" sounds over the top, ridiculous & overblown. Its hard to take such a post seriously even if aki is taking advantage of him. Its easy to take such an angry post at face value, even if you're making a good point. I really wish you started your first post with this argument, because now, i'm willing to actually agree with the idea that aki was actually raping d boy in that scene. You convinced me here. Your first post came off really weird & confusing about it. I concede.
>>
>>22483150
>they both use generally popular tropes is a poor take.

Here is something you don't seem to understand, anon. When you write a scifi story and make a "god emperor" character, it is just whatever. But when you specifictly create a god emperor, ruler of a sand planet and he looks like a giant earthworm with human face, then you are doing a Dune homage. Sure when you break it down, you can argue that " sand planet is a common trope" or " god emperor is a common trope", but the entire entire, the story structure and lore itself as whole is just a homage.
>>
>>22483738
This is the point I was making but I added many insults along the way because it's hard for me to believe that this isn't what people thought watching that scene.

>>22483727
Dude, that's really no excuse. It's not instant consent if you are in a long term relationship, especially if your partner is mentally handicapped like D-Boy was since he was amnesiac and as far as I remember non-verbal. He was in a wheelchair as well, so I thought he was reduced to a childlike state.

>>22483770
>But d boy not being female & all doesn't feel like he's being fucked against his will by his girlfriend
It's not a Twitterfag or "troon" thing to say but men can be raped by women, you know. If anything it seems like the opposite of what those faggots think. Your dick doesn't reflect what your brain thinks.

Anyway, honestly I don't know why there's so much discussion about this. I'm pretty sure Missing Link is basically non-canon anyway, they don't explain how D-Boy somehow survived getting killed by Aki and they also don't explain how Noal is still around when he was explicitly killed in it. At the very least I would prefer to forget about it and I'd rather watch Twin Blood for the fiftieth time.
>>
>>22483955
>they also don't explain how Noal is still around when he was explicitly killed in it.
Afaik the only thing Missing Link depicts is him attempting a suicide run with a nuke strapped to a Sol Tekkaman suit. We see it go off, but we never see whether he was still in the suit or not at that point.

The writers would not have been above pulling off an ass-pull like Noal ditching the suit at the last moment, like an improvised car bomb. They even had Balzac survive re-entry from the space ring while fucking crashlanding the Sol Tekkaman 1 suit back into the earth like a living comet, and chalked it up to the suit being sturdy enough to handle it. (He even managed to repair it into semi functioning form on his own, stuck in the boonies. Which was probably an even greater asspull.)

> I'm pretty sure Missing Link is basically non-canon anyway
Missing Link happened. The Radam taking over D-Boy's mind and reformatting and repairing his tek-set form is how he got his crystal back; *and* is why in TB2 he looks like an inbetween of his regular and blastor TB1 forms. It's also how the Space Knights became aware of the new Radam fleet at the edge of the solar system advancing from Uranus.

The parasites that infested the Argo pre-TB1 were meant to create an advance force of Tekkaman shocktroopers. When the main fleet entered the system, they sent a mental ping trying to connect up with their advance forces. But all they found left was one defunct Tekkaman, i.e. Blade, which they re-appropriated and given nothing better to do with just the one of them turned him into an anti-matter bomb meant to thin the herd in preparation of the main fleet arriving at Earth.

TB2 is (and would have been) about dealing with the main expeditionary force.

Note also that Dr. Frail aka Tekkaman Mikhail, the cult-leader of the Prague uprising in TB2's flashbacks is the same as was on-staff with Freeman when they were trying to reverse engineer the tekset process, in Missing Link.

>>22483899
Nothing about the entire story or plot is similar between Tekkaman Blade or Kamen Rider Black.

Kotoro and Nobuhiko are not actually brothers. They were born on the same day of an eclipse, which prophesied them as the future Century Kings of Gorgom, who then killed Kotoro's parents so Nobuhiko's dad would adopt Kotoroto keep them together. Takaya and Shinya mean nothing to Radam- they were just the unfortunate people who discovered the Radam ship, along with the rest of the Argo crew.

Radam is also nothing like Gorgom. Gorgom is an ancient, eldritch cult with a godlike being seeking it's successor (or new host body, potentially). Radam is an extra-dimensional invasive species. Omega is not the god-king of Radam, just the leader of the invasion on Earth (and also being a brother nulls the whole brother versus brother similarity between Black and Blade). Blade and Evil's fight are not for rulership of Radam. Blade is just targeted as the rogue warrior from Radam, and Evil is his equal as the deadliest Tekkaman. Their fight is personal because of Shinya's feelings of inferiority. Nobuhiko doesn't even feel the Century King fight is personal, since he's fully indoctrinated into Gorgom.Takaya also doesn't think it's possible to rescue his family members, while Kotoro spends the first half of Black wanting to save Nobuhiko.

So again, having two similar plot points- brother versus brother and they transform- doesn't make Blade a direct homage to Black, when nothing else is similar. Unless there is some quote from making of Blade that says they were directly influenced by Kamen Rider Black, it's just some person's supposition on tvtropes. It's as vapid as saying "Neon Genesis Evangelion isn't like other mecha series".

>having two similar plot points- brother versus brother and they transform-

Again, you are trying to break it down to cope. Compare entire story structure and, not cherrypicking it just to say " well this doesn't count! ". With this attitude and mindset, you can even argue that Black Might Gaine was not a homage to Mazinger because there are alot of robot with cockpit inside the head and the cockpit's flight mode named Black Pilder was just a coincidence.
>>
>>22486177
>Compare entire story structure

Kamen Rider Black's entire story structure and Tekkaman Blade's entire story structure are nothing alike.
>>
Have you guys ever read the Kamen Rider Black original manga? Kotaro starts thr story with no memories, his transformation is completely organic and he gets naked when he transforms and is found by a guy and a girl in the beginning of the story. The story go on a different direction afterwards but I think Black wa defnitely an inspiration. Blade feels to the OG Tekkaman what Black was for Kamen Rider a well.
>>
>>22486443
maybe but the biggest difference is that kamen rider black was a good show and tekkaman blade was a shit anime
>>
>>22486443
>Have you guys ever read the Kamen Rider Black original manga?
I have. But no one is going to think of Manga Black when you talk about Kamen Rider Black.

Now, could there have been a copy of Manga Black on the shelf of the writer for Blade, that inspired some ideas? Sure. But all those similar ideas could have came from other places, or even were created independently and are coincidentally similar.

Yes, Manga Kotoro had amnesia. Amnesia is a common backstory, that even Noal calls bullshit when D-Boy claims it (and Noal was right). So, superficially similar, but not at all.

Sure, both Manga Kotoro and D-Boy lose their clothing when they transform. It's realistic to lose clothing when physically transforming. Despite the super heroic nature of the Tekkaman, Tekkaman Blade tries to be as hard sci-fi as it can. Of course, it doesn't explain why D-Boy doesn't lose his clothing later on (maybe Pegas had spare clothing inside it, or as the Tekkaman get more experienced at transforming they don't destroy their clothing. Except both D-Boy and Aki loss their clothing when they transform in Tekkaman Blade 2...). Ishinomori was also trying to make a more grounded series in Manga Black, something he'd try again with Shin Kamen Rider. But losing your clothes when transforming is not a homage to Kamen Rider Black.

A homage is like Kamen Rider Spector doing Black's henshin pose.

Other than there being a guy and a girl (although the news crew was two guys and a girl) who finds Kotaro and D-Boy, nothing else is similar between the news crew and the Space Knights. The news crew even disappears after the Jack the Ripper arc.

Tomino was inspired by Starship Troopers when he made Gundam, but Gundam is not a homage to Starship Troopers. Guyver was inspired by Kamen Rider, but is not a homage to Kamen Rider.

So, unless you have a source that says "Tekkaman Blade is a homage to Kamen Rider Black", you are just grasping at connections you see.
>>
Huh. Apparently Twin Blood, Burning Clock, and Missing Link were all made in 1998-99? I always assumed they were made in 1993, between Tekkaman Blade and Tekkaman Blade 2 in 1994.
>>
Tekkaman Blade 2 was awful. Just watch the first one
>>
>>22486841
Which is why I've been banging the drum about Missing Link being canon.
It was always meant to clarify the gap inbetween TB 1 and TB 2 as part of the longer running TB 2 when it was still meant as a TV series. When the concept for TB2 as a TV-series was axed and the material for the early episodes that was there already was recut into a 6-parter OAV, the other surviving material that didn't make the cut was mothballed. But eventually some of it got turned into the OAV short for Missing Link. The reason it's so all-over-the-place and fragmented compared to Burning Clock and Twin Blood, is that it's literally just a series of half-written and half-produced scenes haphazardly stitched together into their chronological order with some new filler squirted inbetween.

Never wondered why TB2 itself; as well as the Burning Clock and Twin Blood specials managed to retain a consistent style in presentation?
But then with Missing Link we're back to schizo visual inconsistencies in style, coloring and lighting between scenes?
It's because it's literally just a stiched together Frankenstein...

Sorry, I only have the mook released a few years ago and the old manga adaptation.

I decided to look some stuff up with photo translated.

For one, the Blade versus his family was pitched by the producer Motoki Ueda because the previous Tatsunuko anime, Tenkū Senki Shurato, also did a brainwashed best friends Fighting plot and it was popular. The Wikipedia page on Tekkaman Blade is correct about this. Nothing is mentioned about any Kamen Rider influence. Rather, the original Gundam series, with it's more hard sci fi, is a bigger inspiration. Except they wanted to have it be man sized robots instead of giant mecha like in Gundam. That's what originated the Orbital Ring idea- it was similar to the Side colonies of Gundam.

Another interesting bit. Tekkaman Blade 2 was originally going to be only 3 episodes long- the Yumi episodes. Then they decided to do 3 more episodes- the David and Dead arc.

Missing Link is mentioned, but it's only a single page. It's just said to be an extra released for the laser disc, as are Twin Blood and Burning Clock, but doesn't say of they were made before or after thr Tekkaman Blade 2 OVA.

I think if the post didn't have so much anger & vitriol the thread would've been fine about it. Think about it, if it was aki instead of d boy, everyone would've called it rape. But double standards exist & i personally find it hard to see it that way for d boy. Also we didn't see too much how bad his mental health was at the end of the series before it ended, except that d boy was in a wheelchair & possibly not of sound mind, but we heard about the diagnosis from freeman & saw d boy memories flash before his eyes as if he's losing them or his mental faculties.

Another interesting tidbit. Only Blade was intended to have a Voltekka. When the script came in that Evil also had Voltekka, they figured the green orbs already in the design would work as his Voltekka. But they had to scramble in emitters for Axe, Lance, and Sword. So that kind of explains why Dagger didn't have a Voltekka.

Honestly Tekkaman is very KRish. The whole given super powers by an evil organization that wanted to use them as a weapon but they escaped and are now using the powers against them is KR in a nutshell. In fact it's a Heisei Rider before they actually made the Heisei Riders with it's dark storyline and multiple Tekkaman/Riders who are mostly all evil. Noal is straight up a Secondary Rider. But I don't think it's a refrence to Black specifcally just a very Tokusatsu style show that was animated instead probably because doing a show like Tekkaman in Toku suits even with modern CGI would be extremely hard to pull off.
>>
>>22492421
"Brainwashed brother became your biggest rival, while both were transformed into insectoid mutants by an evil faction" is just very KR Black, this idea is just so specific and detailed. Also, i don't think Noah was a "secondary rider", because in the 90s, there was no actual secondary rider, only early ideas of it like Riderman and Tackle. Sol Tekkaman was more like GM in Gundam, an immitation developed from a powerful ace.

I agree, Tekkaman Blade is very much a Kamen Rider in space. And like you said, it's not specifically Black but just how the genre was popular enough to be a general cultural zeitgeist. Black was five years before, so there is a chance that some influence was inherited. But it's not listed in the interview with the show's producer. Since the producer had no problem mentioning Gundam, I would think they would have said if Kamen Rider Black was a direct influence, especially since the interview was done a few years ago. But no, the brainwashed brother thing was inspired by the previous Tatsunoko anime.

In fact, there was a live suit produced for a commercial. I don't know if the commercial was ever saved, but here is the suit.

Shinya died in the episode before the last one. Unless it's the truncated Teknoman version.

I don't think he turned blonde, just was depicted that way by the animator. Like how in Twin Blood he had more green hair and Takaya had red hair, when they should have the same hair color.

That's why I only gave Shinya a half point.

When I was a kid and was watching the Saban version of this show, I thought that it was his transformation into Blastor mode (or Teknoman +, as it was called in the dub) that made Cain's/Shinya's hair change color.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure she's just /m/ommy material, if anything. She's similar to Marina Ismail from Gundam 00, but she also takes after Nena Trinity in taking up a combat role.
Both Tekkaman Blade and Gundam 00 had a gritty tone and space elevators. Setsuna and Takaya/D-Boy also seem to undergo similar character arcs in seeking retribution/redemption.
Strange how something so similar can be so different from each other.
>>
>>22523211
I wonder if 00s orbital elevator is inspired by Tekkaman Blade's space ring. It would be neat since the space ring is inspired by original Gundam. Probably not, but still.
>>
>>22525326
00's Asimov/Clarke influence suggests they probably pulled the space elevator idea more from that kind of thing (possibly even 3001 specifically) than TB, but it's not like Blade doesn't have its own ties to those so the whole thing's pretty interconnected.

So Blade II had issues behind the scenes, right? I just finished running through the whole franchise and I can't even peg what the hell Blade II was supposed to be. Yumi wasn't even the main character after episode 2 or so. The Radam get completely dropped from the plot after we learn they grieve and don't appear again until the last scene, David takes over the plot, I don't know how D-Boy got fixed. At least Aki became a badass and best boy Pegas got rebuilt.
>>
>>22532212
you get some of those answers in missing link
>>
>>22532212
Blade II was going to be a three episode OVA (just the Yumi arc). They knew they wanted to focus on a new generation, so they went with a slightly different style. Then the director got an additional three episodes, so the plot of that arc was more quickly developed, which is why it doesnt really follow up on the first three episodes.
>>
>>22532212

Except that part of TB2 being a full series is wrong.

There was a pitch for a sequel series set 2 years after TB. Missing Link uses part of the pitch as a demo reel. The funding for the series doesn't go through.

They then are able to make an OVA, this becomes TB2. It was originally planned as a 3 episode OVA focused on a new generation 10 years after TB1. Then it got bumped up to 6 episodes, so they came up with the Dead End arc.

Notes for what would have been in Missing Link was used for TB2, but nothing to confirm that Missing Link definitely happened.
>>
>>22532566
I guess it makes sense that she stopped being the focus by that point but even then her arc wasn't good. She learned how to use her Voltekka and declared she was going to take D-Boy from Aki and that was it. When I was watching the first episode, I kept getting Gunbuster vibes but Yumi didn't get the training arc Noriko got. Natasha's "arc" got dropped. She was pissed at Yumi for getting her power-up and then was her friend in the episode after. The whole ship pilot/Tekkaman combo was undercooked. The pilots barely existed and probably didn't' need to exist. Did Noal die when he was arrested? Was that supposed to be Milly in that flashback before the bomb went off?
Were there any notes about the direction the original Tekkaman was supposed to take before it got canned or what happened after the final episode?

I love Star so much bros, I hope you all find someone that loves you the way Star loves Blade.

I love the way she's written, because she's strong when it's neccesary, yet vulnerable and delicate when the moment allows it. She can't even peal a potato without utterly destroying it (and her fingers) and she's the only one who greets commander Jameson when he's on display as a pre-recorded message like a clueless retard, but it just makes her so cute.

For a show about robots, aliens and everything going horribly wrong, it sure does an amazing job at telling a great love story.

4chan really poisons the minds of you weak willed faggots? Pathetic.

I genuinely love Teknoman, dubbed. It has infinitely better music and sound effects (especially the Teknobolt/Voltekka, enemy Teknomen eye activation), and if you can't appreciate the amazing voicework of the dub because you're too closeminded, you're missing out. There's parts like Shara's death where the delivery in the dub has so much more impact. Darkon's voice beats Norio Wakamoto out of the fucking water. Not even Toshiyuki Morikawa, my fav seiyuu, is enough for me to prefer the original over the dub, because the dub is just THAT good. I just finished rewatching the show on DVD, saw a thread, thought it'd be nice to share some love with the people who love the same thing I do.

I'm really grateful to Saban for bringing this show to the west, and Shuki Levi for composing such amazing music, that still inspires me today. I know they're jews, but maybe we gas them last.

Hope you have a nice day, anon, you colossal niggerfaggot.

It has cheap synthesizer score that sounds like Bruce Faulconer's table scraps.
Doesn't even have a proper title score. Just the industrial rock narration drumbeat.

>Darkon's voice beats Norio Wakamoto out of the fucking water.
There's no accounting for taste, but if there was- you'd just have defaulted.

>There's parts like Shara's death where the delivery in the dub has so much more impact.
There's also parts in that same arc where the dub refers to Sword as Rapier because it can't even get its own bible straight. The quality is all over the place. And Miyuki's original death scene is much more powerful than the dub, because the director knew when to have characters shut their pot hole and let silence do the talking instead.

And what the hell is up with all the name changes anyway?

The name Darkon is phoned in ham as fuck. Might as well call him Villainy Mc. Villain esquire. Why did they have to change the name from Omega, anyway? US children don't know what the greek letter omega symbolizes, or what?

Blade randomly got turned into Slade at one point in the early original dub work, which also turned Dagger into Gunner.
The entire D-Boy nickname plot point was dropped like a brick.

But the crowning point of weirdness is probably renaming Bernard O'Toole, which was already a perfectly fine western Irish or Scottish name to O'Rourke, which hails from the same territories. On top of changing his song from 'Oh Danny Boy,' which is - y'know - an *actual* culturally relevant song for the guy? , to an Americanized substitute that just makes no bloody sense at all.

For it's time, it's a pretty good dub. Of course, the original is way better, dunno what that other anon is smoking.

They renamed Kengo to Conrad, with Darkon being somewhat an anagram. Yes, it's a dumb reason, but there is your reason.

Heh, Reason.

because they are trapped or traumatized by their childhood and need the very specific thing even if its just a downgraded version of the superior original ... ( ok i gotta admit that the teknoma tune hit hard as a kid, but the stoic hero rather than the chatty smartass fit better the series once i rewatched it in the 2000s ) kinda like the robotech oldfarts that keep trying to make it work despite being watered down macross...

>For it's time, it's a pretty good dub.
Oh don't get me wrong about that. The actual *acting* quality in it is nothing short of a miracle. No- really. I mean that quite seriously.
It's a cut above everything else from its era.

But to claim its music score is better than the original? Or that it handled key scenes better than the original?
No. Just flat out no.
>>
>>22545519
Evil was named that in the original because Shinya and Takaya were meant as mirror image opposites of one another.
It's fucking literally addressed *by* Shinya in the plot that he believes only one of them was ever meant to exist and he's going to rectify the balance. And all of that harkens back to childhood memories and a schizm that started back in those days, which is explained in Burning Clock.

I'll say this much on that matter:
The dub naming was on point on Shinya's case. Naming him Cain Carter, as in Kain and Abel.
>>
>>22545521
>>22543858
Okay, gonna throw my 2 cents. I am from Poland, and our dub for this anime is just fucking amazing. Blade was voiced by the guy who voiced the fucking Witcher from the video games, and here he is a legendary VA by his own right. Rest of the cast was voiced by popular actors.

You are really stretching it. No, it's just a fucking cliche. Sorry, but it's true.

Biblical references only became much more apparent in TB II. It's like every character has to quote some fucking passage from the good book.

Aki unironically has a possessive personality underneath all the good will. One of the first hints was in the dub. After D-boy giver her flowers she says something like: ''That is enough... at least for now''.

In order for something be rape you have to be held involuntarily against your will as well. Otherwise it's just ordinary sexual assault, which is why banging passed out chicks doesn't really carry much of a sentence in most jurisdictions. Such is life.

We all do, anon.
But you have to understand- it would have to be voiced. And while a mic would still be an affordable write-off, the true-to-form experience of the Voltekka soundbyte breaking the speakers on every single TV in existence on which the game is played would be well beyond what Bamco's suits & ties would be willing to foot the bill for.

The original Gespenst was a powered armor. Although I think a design closer to Detonator Orgun would fit better in the OG-verse. Maybe something with the Einst could provide the biomechanical creation of a Tekkaman like small unit.

Thanks to this thread, I watched all of the original Tekkaman as well as Tekkaman Blade. Why hasn't Japan done another reimagination that's closer to the Twins OVA where they're biotech ala Guyver-esque? A new generation of viewers can watch Tekkaman for the 21st century.

I think Generator Gawl was an extended version of Twin Blood but with different characters. That bio-punk henshin hero kind of idea is rare, because bio stuff is more akin to horror.
There were also Kamen Rider Amazons and Black Sun, but those shows were kinda dogshit so don't bother.

It was so bizzare to see politic aspect in Black Sun being so non-Japanese. If they want to make it "mature", just abuse the shit out of gore and blood and that's enough. Amazons had the same problem with " Human le bad", it is such a boring and tiresome trope.

Thing is, Showa Kamen Rider subtly touched upon the themes that the forced experimentation that the early Riders faced made them isolated from humanity and questioned what makes a human. It wasn't Devilman-level of introspection but it was there in a more oblique manner.

Black Sun had so much potential and they fumbled it.

Different animators and different studios. Various slices of work for Tekkaman Blade were outsourced all over the place, many times even within the same episode various different scenes would go to different studios. Whichever could do them cheapest. Think Bamco is a penny-pincher? Try Tatsunoko on for size.

While you're at it, you can also blame them for the SDF Macross licensing hell, because iirc Tatsunoko are the dicks that sold Harmony Gold a sublicense to Macross that they weren't even at liberty to sell.
