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.

He's a nanomachine powered android fighting other nanomachine powered androids.

It's very mecha unlike other shows with Homos in skin tight suits.

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.
