Anybody watching this? Should I even try it out?

I'm expecting the worst. The worst possibly imaginable.

Looks like Macross 7, Magical Cunt Girl Edition.

You can trust Kawamori, man. Just roll with it.

This is one of the more interesting mecha designs I've seen in a while. It's pretty unique how the lines are. Most of the mechanical design in the show is this kind of crude block like structure but that's oddly refreshing.

I'm hoping to see more. Possibly a mid-season or cour 2 upgrade to it like in other shows. I'd also like to see a figure come out and not just our usual hollow plastic model kit.

The armor seems unnecessarily busy but the overall aesthetic is still pretty pleasing.

I can't wait until we get some super dramatic incredibly high tense action show again like Fafner. Either season.

I've yet to see the new movie though, and I'm a bit afraid to look in to it. Is it any good? Is it just a compilation of S2?

I take it for some reason you want us to notice these are the same song? So there is a lot of this track across mecha games?

I've been watching Ando Lloyd, it's so cheesy but I can't stop watching it...

These tropes I love them too much, but when the show tries to be meta I want to cringe and turn off my PC. It's an addictive kind of torture, but it's not quite like watching a train wreck. It's something I can't put into words, but if I were to have to pick them, I wouldn't pick good, or awful.

Just finished the show...

It goes retard multiple times. It just can't decide whether the androids are fully nanomachine constructs or part machine. And then one of the plot devices is just so fucking retarded. I mean I shouldn't be surprised at all since it was hinted at with very little subtlety.

But I was surprised, it made me laugh a bit and feel second hand embarrassment even. To be honest though, despite how cliched and predictable it was, everything down to the deus ex machinas were not ass pulls. Every small detail was foreshadowed very carefully from start to finish.

Only one plot twist wasn't set up appropriately, just vaguely. Now then action wise, it's pretty silly looking at times, but for a jap tokusatsu show, I was surprised I was able to sit through. Most tokusatsu shows I drop due to how silly the action scenes are, but this show's action scenes are tolerable.

If Ando Lloyd was this okay, I wonder how okay Patlabor was. I might be willing to sit through it.

Oh it's like a toku show? He transforms in to a suit and fights badguys?

Why did you post a zentradi poster?

Because he wanted to give /m/ the greatest gift of all: reaction images.

There is henshin but it's just to his organs by injecting nanites to himself. What I meant about the show being indecisive is that when they show the android's internal schematics it clearly looks machine. But multiple dialogues and his henshin sequence point to the fact he's biomechanical, not cybernetic. His movements are also jarringly robot too.

I am many years too late for that. I did it for nostalgia's sake since I remembered how exploitable this image was.

Wasn't this the series of videos that first was blastfaxed across endchan and caused the first /am/ fiasco?

The main robot is really cool, the battles were alright, the production quality was up there, the characters were fun, the music was go shiina.

For original mecha series this decade it already beats the shit out of A/Z. Words could not express how much that series pissed me off.

First season of AZ was tolerable to me, second, not so much specially the NTR material ending.

I didn't watch S2. I thought Slaine killing the annoying Relana 2.0 and fucking egg-kun was so satisfying after Saezbaum lost to them in his kick as machine. I just couldn't take it learning that magically they'd be back to annoying the every loving shit out of me for another season. I decided just not to watch.

Seriously fuck that show. Sauzbam was the only character that had any good backstory and earth winning because of this idiot who had less life in him and more stupid plot armor gimmicks than amuro 0079 was pure dogshit.

Inaho and Slaine being enemies was so ham fistedly handled though. Then in S2 the show shits itself entirely not knowing what to do with Slaine. Also I'm not gonna lie, I ALMOST liked Inaho, there were a few moments when character almost leaked out.

In my honest opinion the show's pacing is the biggest culprit more than anything. None of the twists and turns are delivered appropriately.

Anyone know why Overman King Gainer had consistently good to even awesome animation despite it not being Gundumb?

It's probably to make up for the fact that he looks like a goofy rastafari jellyfish.

I dig his design to be honest. And honestly I even love the goofy aspects of it, like the pouch he uses to store bullets. The design is just so fresh to me for some reason I can't explain. And this comes from someone who absolutely despises dreadlocks. Also this anime was the second I've seen use artificial muscle for mechs so appropriately and interesting. The first of course being Aurora Battler Dunbine.

I certainly think that King Gainer was the last good series that Tomino did and might even be Sunrise's last entry in to the old time mecha genre.

As far as me enjoying it or not, I guess it was ok. The show was about the MC getting to the final battle with gundam 0079 hijinks sprinkled throughout for comic relief. The OP is a keeper though.

>>157
Doesn't it look like he's cutting through that Dunbine unit you posted in the OP?

If you haven't seen the show yeah, I can't totally see someone confusing it for a Dunbine. I wonder if King Gainer is Tomino's attempt at making a less murder filled Dunbine.
