Not too many people on /a/ remember Galaxy Angel, much less Rune, even less on the existence of the games (not the one on Newgrounds). I can definitely say that the games are lot better and I'll be posting CG's from the first game.
But it all starts with you /a/. Which one do you want first? I can give context, route summaries, and the likes if you wish.
Pink hair on the bottom left doesn't show up until the 2nd game so don't ask about her.
It feels bad being the guy who played the 2nd series or the games in general because I got no one to talk about them with
The anime was pretty enjoyable.
What are the games like?
Decent at best, character driven.
The simplest way I can explain the games to you is a mix of Mass Effect dialogue with the ship's crew and Star Fox-esque spaceship combat.
I wonder where the anons who played the games went. The thread a week ago was semi-decent
She shows up for like 2 seconds in the 2nd series
That's what I mean. I wanted a true, full love story. So sad.
Humor is definitely a bit weird. Some routes are way better than others.
The second series improves on everything
Finishing up last route, more reunion CG to come
Not like any of you care
She was okay
It was a big series back in the day and yes it was a fangame
It's sad being a big fan of the series
What went so wrong all these years
Missing reunion with Ranpha. Time to play again
I'm going through this show for the first time, and I'm liking it a lot. I said in another GA thread that shows like this have a greater "healing" effect than actual "healing" anime, and after finishing the first season, that hasn't changed.
Strangely, my favorite episode was the super serious Forte one. It was like a dramatic Cowboy Bebop episode, dropped in the middle of a random hyperactive comedy, without any attempt to reconcile it with the rest of the show, but it totally works.
>>Not too many people remember Galaxy Angel, Rune, or the games
That's not what happened. What happened was this:
>Galaxy Angel was fun and popular; thanks to the English dub and the translated manga.
>Seemed that the hardliner Japanese HATED its popularity.
>Bancolding$ stopped dubbing Galaxy Angel midway. The manga stopped being translated midway.
>Bandai "USA" wanted to sell us expensive sub-only animu (including the anti-shounen Galaxy Angel Rune).
>Everyone moved on to better animu than the Galaxy Angel series and only a few people liked it.
>Finally, the people behind Bandai "USA" said some shit nobody liked. That's why they're now selling animu through 2nd parties.
Well, thank you for enlightening me.
It's certainly got the most amazing series but it sucks having no one to talk about the games with
I only played the first trilogy ( ranpha only)
I couldnt be bother with the anime since Tact and Co wasnt there.
Here the main thing that draw my attention
till this day I still couldnt find the english lyric to the OP
Ranpha was okay. Constant dere and misunderstandings everywhere weren't exactly my thing but oh well. I'm almost at her reunion scene so a better quality pic incoming soon
Mark my words, I will keep this thread alive
The true test of any TV comedy series, anime or otherwise, is how it handles a serious episode. A really good serious episode can elevate a good comedy to a great one. Recall the Fresh Prince episode with Will's dad, or pretty much any of the more dramatic Simpsons episodes from the first 8 seasons. However, a bad serious episode (ones that are boring or overly dramatic) can unintentionally expose the shallowness of an otherwise well-meaning comedy.
GA did well in this regard. The episode in that image was not boring, and not overly dramatic. Quite the opposite actually, it was super low key and yet incredibly compelling, and it managed to tell a perfect self-contained story in just 10 minutes. That goes a very long way in establishing the staff behind the show as extremely competent storytellers who, as far as the rest of the GA anime goes, just want to have a little fun.
Mint is best girl tho
That Fresh Prince episode fucking killed me
My take on it is, the actual plot and setting isn't really all too inspired, and generic at first, but gets a bit better as you play.
The character interaction is where the games really shine though. Being able to choose your rounds on the Elsior/El Ciel keeps things fresh through subsequent playthroughs, and the actual routes themselves are interesting when you see the differences between them.
Wait, so the hardcore Japanese hated GA? I would have never guessed. I thought they liked cute and comfy stuff.
Forte's serious episodes were great. I really enjoyed the one with the whole assassin robot plot line. Playing Forte's route in the games made me appreciate her episodes a lot more too.
Doing god's work, anon.
Forgot my pic.
I'm in the middle of Chitose's route right now on Eternal, why is she so god damn cute? GA has some great voice acting. Every time she stutters in embarrassment my heart skips a beat.
For the guys who played the 1st trilogy allow me to briefly give the difference of scale in terms of actual plot
>Royal coup and ancient technology
>More rebels and then ancient enemy
>Ancient enemy and the whole of the galaxy at stake
>Coup and kidnapping end up becoming a threat to two parallel universes. For clarification the universe the first trilogy takes place is called EDEN while the new one where the 2nd trilogy takes place is called NEUE. Between them is a dimensional hub connecting other parallel universes called Absolute
>2nd game has yet another rebellion but the three rebellion leaders are fighting not for supremacy but rather because they're in a game set by a mysterious being and the winner gains access to an ability to completely bypass normal space and allowing inter-dimensional travel on a whim
>Third/sixth final game has literally EVERYTHING at stake as the main bad guys want to reset everything with a Big Crunch
The second series improves on EVERYTHING
Chitose's route is fucking hilarious when the romantic conflict finally shows up.
I hope you like Lester
>2nd trilogy sounds crazy. I knew about the whole alternate universes thing, and I always felt that the whole scale of that would be pretty shitty, but I've really taken to the idea lately.
I'm glad the second trilogy is so damn cheap to buy, even for the special editions. Learning moon is the only problem.
Now that there's people actually in the thread (I think). I might as well at least provide some context for the reunion.
Tact and Ranpha scream at the top of their lungs with the usual exchange of DAAAAARLING and MYY HONEYYYY. It takes the operator to seperate them and get back to discussing work
Lester shows up in the most badass way possible in the 2nd series' first game. Even when they're seperated, he saves Tact's ass
And to follow up on that, Ranpha works as an ambassador to a planet that's (fittingly) filled with magic and WIZARDS. She kicks a dude's ass for being too loud in the restaurant too. CG incoming for that part. Her personality hasn't changed but that's a good thing
Forte's reunion is pretty funny. In the first game, Tact had a catch phrase of saying "Don't praise me like that" when in reality no one was. The situation with Forte in the 2nd trilogy's 1st game has her being forced to lead the rebellion and fight Tact's fleet in the middle chapter. After Tact wins through sheer bullshitting and the Angel Wing they reunite and have a hug. The scene during the hug basically goes
>Forte let go, I think we've hugged enough, everyone's watching
>I don't care. Let em' watch
For the anime, it goes
>Original Galaxy Angel
>S (which are specials, not really a season)
The original starts out a little slow in my opinion, but after like 5 eps it gets a lot better. After the original and Z, the humor gets more absurd in a kind of episodic way, but it's just as enjoyable. Pic related was later in the season where the entire 15 minute episode was a parody with them doing an entire tokusatsu series.
Forgot to add, Tact gets to being praised. The only time he ever will for the rest of the series
>Beginning to End
>Whichever order you want
This feels like the opposite of the first thing you said.
>Play the games
Downloading the first now. Honestly surprised to find a torrent with seeds, I thought that would be more painful.
Probably going to try going through the game in moon, but we'll see how much made up space stuff they attempt to confuse me with.
I meant to either watch anime first and games later and vice versa.
The 1st one's torrents aren't the worst. But getting the PS2 iso files to play the second series was goddamn torture
I expected the reunion with Milfie a bit more emotional but it really wasn't. Tact mentions 2/6 times that he has a wife and nobody was surprised with this reunion.
Makes sense. If I like the first series enough then I'll probably be motivated to find the second series. When the beginning's a pain in the ass I tend to not do it.
Honestly I vaguely remember watching the first couple episodes and dropping it. That was either late 2004 or early 2005 I think. Pretty sure I watched Bottle Fairy instead, which doesn't make much sense.
Anyway, I'm going to try playing the games first and then try and watch the anime without subs. It seemed like a brilliant plan when I came up with it five minutes ago.
>If this butterfly doesn't get the fuck out of my face
>but we'll see how much made up space stuff they attempt to confuse me with.
I know this isn't exactly what you mean, but they add "space" as a prefix onto a lot of the stuff in game. Or at least the translation did that. I always found it really charming, especially with Forte at one point.
>Yo! Friend of the Space Raddish!
It doesn't really matter if you play the games first or watch the anime first. I think either way you'll appreciate something you didn't notice from whatever you watched/played the first time around.
Yeah, the first few episodes set up Milfie into the Angel Wing and introduce Normad, so there's not as much comedy compared to later on.
Ranpha and the cat familiar leave and light goes back off
Mint becomes head of her family company and is still the manipulative and sarcastic girl we all know and love.
In this exhibit, red haired girl Anise happens to owe a debt to her (which is why she joins the Angel Wing) and now with more destruction of property leads to more debt
The rank difference in Tact and Kazuya makes the entire 2nd series a bit more enjoyable. Tact was always commander in his set of games while Kazuya is within the ranks of the Angel Wing and gets to have more conversations with the girls and the rest of the ship in general.
Since he actually partakes in fights (his Emblem Frame merges with others) he can pull more stunts and action sequences to actually make the girl fall in love.
But in the end, he's pretty feminine and shy but surprisingly VERY hardworking (while Tact is just lazing off and being a smartass)
Might as well fill in with the other reunions
Mint is overworked with family business while Tact is embroiled in yet another conflict. The two share a nice little moment before Mint leaves the ship and both tell Kazuya the shut his trap.
Vanilla currently works on advancing nanomachine technology and when one of the Angel Wing members happens to be her technical daughter faints due to overworking herself with nanomachines, she comes to help.
Vanilla is still very little in the emotional level but you can really hear her joy when the two meet again.
Chitose and Milfie are the girls who get their reunion at the end of the game and Chitose's been serving on the Elsior with Lester and co. so she runs up to Tact with some tears and she gets completely red in the face after he tells her that everyone is looking
Mint's route in the third was the best thing to come out of the games.
Pedo or not, Mint and Vanilla had the best routes.
Interesting. One thing that always bothered me about the first trilogy was how little ship conversations EL had, and to a lesser extent ML. More of that is great.
Do the PS2 games have furigana for Kanji? My knowledge of Japanese is rudimentary at best, but I think as long as I don't have to learn Kanji I could probably get away with not being as knowledgeable.
Maybe for Vanilla, but Mint was 16 in the first trilogy. She's just super petite. And the best.
Vanilla is 17 in the 2nd series and finally grows taller to around Chitose's height. Mint still stays short as fuck but perfect for hugging.
Conversations galore in the 2nd series. While ML and EL had around 5-6 chapters, all three games in the 2nd series have 10 chapters. Conversation periods always used to take in chrono drive but since Kazuya isn't a commanding officer he gets to interact a lot more
>There will never be another GA anime again because Rune was so fucking terrible that it literally killed the franchise
It's been almost 8 years now and I'm still mad
So heroic moments of Kazuya #1.
Due to romantic tensions, Tact sends Apricot and Kazuya on a seperate assignment but shit goes wrong with their shuttle. They decide to evacuate and get out. Seeing as how the ship's gonna explode and with debris from the previous fight everywhere, Kazuya moves inbetween the ship and Apriot and takes a shitton of metal shards to his back and nearly dies.
He wakes up a few days later and Apricot apologizes for the problem earlier. She says she'll do one request for him and he jokingly says that she should lie next to him and then she unexpectedly does
I really don't understand why they had to censor like that, unless they were aired in a timeslot where lots of kids would be watching. Shit, they could have at least made it so the DVD release changed them back to normal, like how today BDs are always a lot more lewd than the TV airing.
I'm guessing changing every scene would be way too much work compared to just a few scenes overlaid with light bars or something.
It's amazing how much stuff Sawashiro has done since then. Her range is so amazing that half the stuff I've seen with her in it, I didn't even recognize it was her.
All these years later she can still do cute high pitched voices like Mint also, like her Broccoli/Puchiko in Neptunia.
Forte's VA was Envy though, that has to count for something.
The ride ain't over
Lily's route has Kazuya being the woman in distress with Lily playing the usual guy who doesn't know what he did wrong. Case in point, Lily wants Kazuya's boypussy
Vanilla's VA has been in lots of stuff though usually in minor roles.
Besides Vanilla and Satoko, major roles of hers are Tiffa Adill, the heroine of Gundam X, and Arche Klein in the Tales games.
Kahlua is maximum comfy and legitimately cannot begin or end a sentence without having an Ara~ in there somewhere. She's pretty straightfoward in terms of romance
The other side of Kahlua is Tequila, who only shows up if Kahlua consumes alcohol and she's a bit more pushy than her counterpart. This is where Kazuya gets more assertive than the usually assertive girl
>Vanilla is Tiffa in Gundam X
Shit, I'm surprised I never noticed that. Vanilla's theme in GA is "like a dolphin", and in Gundam X, Tifa swims with Newtype dolphins. It all makes sense now.
Val-Fasq crew member who somehow becomes the funniest character in the whole series
>Val-Fasq crew member
Oh shit, I didn't expect that. Well, at least not as a crew member after all that shit
Weinpulled in EL. Then again I guess I should have seen it coming because of him and his heart bullshit and Tact being a nice guy.
The dude starts out as serious as fuck but when
Coco becomes captainhe becomes comedy gold. Of all the new side characters, this guy is without a doubt the best
I want one so bad, the second series is so good.
Late 90s and early 2000s anisongs, they just have that sound to them, you know? The kind that makes you feel nostalgic instantly, even if you didn't actually grow up with those shows.
Lily REALLY loves Kazuya's boypussy.
What other romance has the entire cast faking NTR to get Lily to say fuck off to her family's wishes for her love life?
I never thought I'd see anyone getting nostalgic over any early 2000s anime, especially here considering a lot of posters either only watch currently airing shows, or only get nostalgia over 90s or older. That makes me feel old as fuck. 2000s stuff is very charming in it's own way though, despite instant dismissal from most people.
Speaking of rookie seiyuu, the shota who could talk to the space whale (damn, I've forgotten all the minor characters' names already) was Mamiko Noto in one of her first roles.
For obvious reasons, early 2000s animu is automatically nostalgic to us oldfags who were around from the beginning of /a/. Galaxy Angel, Mahoromatic, Pretty Cure (just Pretty Cure, no damn subtitle)...
You shoulda seen my face when EVERY side character from the 1st game's ship showed up in the final game. It really hits home when they
blow up the Elsior to counteract a blackhole forming near the Val-Fasq homworld. Val-Fasq crew member cries tears of manliness
By the way, they still never get to together while Coco is pretty much assumed to end up with Val-Fasq bro
>Mfw I played the third game of the Rune trilogy last month.
Angel Wing end up killing the 2 true gods of their verse since those 2 cunts wanted to reset everything because they found the world boring/people didn't respect them enough.
I always liked this guy for some reason. Whoever does his voice got the quiet shota thing down pat.
That's kind of sad, but I can see Lester still being dense as fuck even after all those games. Poor Almo though.
>Whoever does his voice
See >>111032553. It's Mamiko Noto. Noto kawaii yo Noto.
Ranpha was such a slut.
The Chitose of the 2nd series
AKA: The romantic rival, only that he actually is one in a few routes
Dick Chaser Anime Ranpha >>>>>>>>>>>> Tsundere Chiche VN Ranpha
It was great seeing a female variation of the wacky sex-crazed men.
There needs to be more man-chasing women like Ranpha in anime. Even if they're just played up for comedy.
Ranpha is better in other girls' routes than in her own. You have her to thank for Vanillamaid. She also teases Mint with adorable results.
Everyone has to be pure nowadays anon, it's kinda sad
And in pic related, we have Kazuya finally being the man of this particular relationship. You haven't seen tomboys if you haven't heard Anise's voice
I am still disappoint that Mint never got a proper kiss cutscene or CG in any of the games.
Maybe the game creators were afraid a Mint kiss scene would create a singularity of moe and collapse the universe.
I haven't played the 1st series in a while shit, you're right. I don't recall any scenes of Mint kissing
I guess the loudspeaker scene before the fight was all they could do to top it.
Agreed, but the whole
broadcast to the galaxy expressing her undying lovewas more than enough.
I was smiling like a motherfucker when that happened.
There was one or two cheek kissu scenes I think, but not actual kisses.
Everyone's reaction when they heard their thoughts man. Best route with Chitose following.
>Ranpha, this is why no man wants to be with you
>Oh my, she's running even faster now.
That scene was awesome, probably my second favorite scene.
My first will always be Tact marriage declaration to Vanilla in the 3rd game though.
[Schoolgirl Squealing Intensifies]
Im more of a Chitose fan myself.
Vanilla is my second.
The whole reason why I got into the second series was to see the post-marriage status of Tact and chosen Angel. Vanilla saying "anata" was so nice
>Wait, so the hardcore Japanese hated GA?
No. Japanese hardliners (or should I say, American otaku who complain about the lack of "purity" in Wapanese animu) hated how it was given English dubbing and "ruined by American voice actresses."
It might've been part of an ongoing battle by said otaku against English dubbing. But it nearly ruined it for everybody.
Top three is
Have some battle themes
They had the remixed Val-Fasq theme in the final game and it was hype as fuck
Time to save the thread again
He was a fun side character
Wow, that's gay. I mean, the English dub was pretty damn bad in comparison, but getting dubbed didn't take away the great original audio or anything.
Makes me kind of sad how as time passes, people forget what they once loved, but it's nice to see even a handful of people still love it, even if people like me only got into it around 5 years after it aired and played the games only very recently.
Well it just proves that the manga and games are better than any anime it's based on. IMMHO, only because the shounens in the manga and games don't get shitted on.
This hatred against shounens by the otaku-base anime's currently making their money off of... The need for shounen to not exist in an anime unless they're treated like shit / femdomized / dressed up as girls... How long will it last? :(
More recognizing famous VA's. Kana Asumi voiced the waitress.
In the extra CD in the 2nd game (prepping for the route with the new girl which meant Kazuya didn't romance anybody) replayed the mandatory date with Kazuya forced to crossdress and serve on the ship instead of playing around with the girls.
and unlike the first series, the side characters show up in a lot of cutscenes
Moon Angel Wing CG's from the second game. The 2nd game has the our new cast mostly on their own so we won't be seeing the original crew for a bit
After all the shit from the first game, Forte gets her vacation
Time to find more ways to keep this shit alive
I forgot how pretty Forte can be when she's not in uniform.
I think we've run out of steam for now, sadly. We'll have another one every once in a while I'm sure. Remember anons, GA threads are
eternaleven once they slip off the last page.
Not too much interest in the new crew but I guess I can save those CG's for next time. I haven't gotten through too much of the CG library of the first game while the 2nd game still needs to be done multiple times.
Was fun while it lasted I guess. I'll be making another thread around next week
Well she can be your waifu if you go play the games.
Her personality is pretty much carried over and her route is pretty nice. It ain't comedy gold like the others but it's pretty focused with the romance
There's only one translation available so that should be a yes.
Appreciate the character named Coco because she becomes important later
Yes, there's not many people who do PS2 translation patches in the first place. I had to tweak a few settings on my graphics card to get the game to run as best as possible.
By default the first game is fullscreen only, so make sure you set your card to override and preserve aspect ratio for the original 4:3.
Moonlit worked just fine for me, but for Eternal, you can't change the battle resolution to anything other than the lowest possible settings without the translated text getting screwed up. Make sure to disable desktop composition in GAEL.exe properties, because on some PCs the cutscenes won't display.
Anyone ever be a devil enough to make the wrong choice near the end of the first game? I did it to entertain myself when I rejected Vanilla (my heart died) and I ended up with Lester's ending.
All for the Chitose route
The Bridge is the funniest place in the game.
Coco's bridge isn't as funny but gets shit done
2nd game of the 2nd series. Cutscenes are pretty derpy
She gets some development and she couldn't handle the weight for captain for a bit. Strict as fuck Val-Fasq subcommander didn't help either but Tact gives her a nice little talk about having confidence in her abilities since she's been through and hell and back with her as his operator.
Val-Fasq dude becomes pretty lenient and obedient and like >>111031514 depicts, they made for an effective duo
Because she kept showing up in Vanilla's route and that was good
Bottom right is legitimately a clump of nanomachines that gained sentience. She can be anything you want. Brown tomboy is manlier than the MC but by god is she adorable when the inner femininity comes out
>so pure that when she feels the doki doki she thinks it's a heart condition
He makes a move and gives a kiss and then they go for one more
My favorite series. Watched an episode daily since it aired with a few exceptions.
Rune was terrible though. Nothing has really come close to the greatness of Galaxy Angel, it's the peak of early 2000s anime.
LISTEN UP, YOU WORTHLESS WASTE OF A Y CHROMOSOME. WHEN A DELICIOUS BROWN TOMBOY HUGS YOU, YOU FUCKING HUG HER BACK. YOU PUT YOUR GODDAMN ARMS AROUND THAT PERFECT BROWN WAIST AND YOU DO NOT LET GO UNTIL THAT TOMBOY IS WELL AND TRULY HUGGED, YOU HEAR ME BOY?
Because Galaxy Angel is actually secret genius. Some of the directing in Z is the best I've seen, they pushed the boundaries of story telling in each episode more than any other series has done since.
She barely wore the uniform in the first game
Well it was fun sharing the games with you anons.
First games are up for direct download and torrent in a lot of sites and are completely translated. The second series will require you to have a decent PC/labtop and have a emulator. The torrents for the 2nd series are near dead but I'm seeding the final 2 games while the 1st one of the second series will take a bit
I really hope so. I don't experience space operas that often but the series is hella entertaining.
It doesn't matter if you don't understand moon anons, the entire things fully voiced and don't you tell me you haven't watched enough romantic scenes to know what they're saying
Tact what are you doing embarrassing your
fianceeon TV like that
Thread needs more kissu. Thread can never have enough kissu.
Vanilla with her hair undone is the best. Refer to
As you wish
Ah jeez, I deleted that post because MPC-HC's screenshot function wasn't playing nice with the subs.
Anyways, Normad is still a bitch.
It might be a bit easier to link Normad to Satoko though.
I'll take the lack of requests for route summaries as a sign for people wanting to play the games
it not the second series is translated
Also remember your series is better with Jam project
Holy shit I missed this series, its the anime that got me interested in animu/mango in the first place
it all started with the damn flash game on a certain website, you know which one
The anime was so nonsensical I laughed my asses out, literally. Especially the DNA-alteration episode, in case you forgot
Mint the best out of Moon
Nano the best out of Rune
Deal with it
I do not have a clue of what's being said there
Anise became my favorite Rune Angel. I had a general idea of how routes would go for Kahlua, Rico, and Nano since they're attitudes aren't rare but I was curious on what I would get with Anise and Lily.
Nano's route was pretty metal though
Both did not disappoint
It's probably more so that Tact doesn't get art. I've got a lot of Mint pictures, most from Danbooru and Pixiv.
I'm under the impression that the Japanese loved Mint because when the first game got limited editions, Mint and Milfie got super limited editions, but the other angels didn't.
If it's safe to assume that people remember this series back from the early 2000's and that people here on /a/ have watched anime since then, there is no reason you can't pick up on a certain keywords to understand what's going on.
Legitimately what I did and I understood 70% of the plot. Summaries exist online too
The official artbook thankfully had some male characters in it
Time for some art of the guys that show up in the games. For whatever reason, the artists decided to have them chilling with a lizard.
It takes a special level of bromance and trust to have your best friend go play around with pretty girls as part of his job while you just work day in and day out
Most of the GA doujins are around Mint or Milfie last I checked. Too bad just about none of them are any good.
There's a lot of official pics of her too, so that might be another reason.
Kanan is the official artist for the series. No idea on the dinosaurs but hey, the series is in space
I'll just be posting some of the stuff I've got, scans of official stuff and fanart. Though, some of the scans have too large a filesize to be posted.
I was pretty shocked at how different they could be between the show and game. At least Milfie was nice to her.
The Body switch never fails to amuse me. Must have been a good challenge for the VA's
That was a great episode. I think my favorite is this one. Never fails to amuse me.
The one where Mint and Ranpha start a chain of fake blackmailing to get their Eblem Frames back from that thief is also one of my favorites.
They're definitely better than that crappy cocktease game that just came out
I have heard ominous tales of its weebish dialogue and fanservice with nothing happening afterwords.
Either way, first series is completely translated
Last GA pic I have that's in an organized folder. I'll get the rest some other day. Most of this stuff can be found on zerochan, boorus, or elsewhere, like Minitokyo that has all the really high res scans with large file sizes.
I'll thank all of you in advance anons. It was a peaceful Friday with not much going on and I wanted to talk about a series I loved with you all and hopefully convert a few people to play the games.
While I'll be up all night, I bid farewell to those who participated.
Know that our love is Eternal
You were the GA II anon I guess right? I'll be there the next time there's a thread, no doubt.
Last pic I've got, for real this time.
I still got a few more routes to do for the 2nd game while I got a whopping 5 left for the last one.
We'll all see eachother soon
Must say. OP did a good job in making such a comfy thread.
Helps if Vanilla's theme is playing
It helps when everyone has fond memories of the series.
Vanilla's theme is an alltime favorite of mine with Ranpha's following close after. The new series girls' have nice themes too
Have some songs to accompany you anons
And Forte's best song
To clear this up, Anise gets a cutscene with her kiss in the 1st game compared to everyone else's CG's. I got a busy-ish week so I'll most likely make a thread next week.
But with the games in your hands, my fellow anons, there can be much more GA comfiness in the future.
The super moves in the sequels gain new effects which is evident in Forte and Ranpha's moves where if they overkill it, they move on to different targets.
Mint's route clears shit up fast while Vanilla's route makes sure nobody dies
This is after she kicks our MC to the wall, trips him, and initiates in on the kiss.
Granted it looks a bit awkward with animation back then but oh well.
I might as well go screencap it for you
Because who would actually expect a kiss after being kicked?
She drops Kazuya on the head afterwards and runs away
I found more kissu in an old /a/ folder, but it's forbidden love.
I liked them too. A shame they didn't show up too much in Season 4. I liked the idea of them being sidekicks to Chitose.
And while we're on the subject, Anime Yandere Attention Whore Chitose>>>Game Chitose.
You're doing God's work, OP.
I have loved GA since I was a kid. Its genius lies in its wondrous sci-fi setting that basically allows any kind of adventures or shenanigans. But I don't really need to peddle it to some johnny come lately. It has an unshakable place in my heart, like a childhood summer home that I always revisit whenever I'm happy.
I ain't sleeping for while dear, late anon. Welcome to the ultimate comfort thread on /a/. Some Mint pictures from the newer games are quite up there.
Unless you've played them already
We don't have enough shows where everyone is a sociopath working against one another. If anyone can understand the comparison, it's like the progenitor of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
I forgot how funny that episode was. Fucking Forte getting drunk and trying to drink with a cactus.
It wasn't just the cheesy singing, the nameless robot and the transformation sequence was a Voltes V parody.
I didn't quite notice it the first time around, but GA had quite a few mecha anime references. Like that episode where Mint puts on the duck hat that makes her go bald, she was looking for something marked "RX-78" at first. Which was the first Gundam's model number.
Pic related had Vanilla piloting a Mazinger ripoff, complete with Hover Pilder and rocket punch.
Said it once before and I'll say it again
Do me proud anons. 1st trilogy are up or downloads and are completely translated.
The 2nd series not so much and me and another anon are seeding the torrents. Don't fear the moonrunes, I believe in you anons.
Don't wait up for me, try and deliver a thread before I do later on.
