Best mech shows in years
>>
Bizon the best madman
>>
>>137526464
I wouldn't call it the best in years since last year we had Fafner EXODUS, but it's definitely top 3 of 2014.

Maybe if they gave it the episodes it deserved instead of the garbage shit we got.
>>
>>137526716
The fact they managed to close the plot up in just TWO FUCKING EPISODES deserves nothing but praise.
Fuck the Banrise execs though.
Kits never.

One of the better ones in the last decade.

Too bad they cut it short because it was just a fucking app comercial.

>>137526464
Truly the greatest love story of our time too.
>>
>>137526980
ACCEPTION.
For a show that sounded completely gay in everything from name to synopsis it turned out to be so straight it gave us the hardest case of NTR ever documented in history.
>>
that's not knights of Sidonia

>>137526464
I liked MJP more. When are we getting season two?
>>
>>137527054
I went in MJP with high expectations after people hyped the fight choreography up and exited it with "it was okay".
Ange was best girl/boy.

When are we getting Movie 2?

Is it time for the monthly meeting of Club Argevollen?

It's a shame Luck and Logic disappoints in terms of OST despite being the same composer.
>>137527443
My favourites of 2014 were BC, M3 and Arge. I bet people will call me a hipster but those were the ones I genuinely enjoyed the most. G-Reco was quite decent too.
>>
>>137527508
I should probably clarify I meant mecha shows.
>>
>>137527508
I really liked BC and M3. I'd like to say my favorite out of 2014 was the first half of Cross Ange, but that went downhill hard in the second half. Biggest disappointment of 2015.
>>
>>137526464
Buddy Complex was fucking garbage. I'd call it the worst mech show in years but there's a few 2-cour mecha shows from the same year that I didn't manage to finish that might be even worse unbeknownst to me.

And then Sunrise seemingly decided to pack up completely on the TV front as they've barely done anything since besides some Gundam and Gintama. I guess there was Cross Ange.

>>137528722
They announced Mirai Arise and Classicaloid last year, though they haven't given any further news about either. They're doing something for Zegapain, though we don't know whether or not it's a full sequel. More Love Live. Shame about AW sequel being a movie.

inb4 Mai-HiME fag.
>>
>>137526947

It's weird that a 12 episode app commercial had more structure and coherency too it than a lot of the big budget 24 episode attempts of the decade so far, but I mean when your main competition is shit like Star Driver, Guilty Crown, Aldnoah, Valvrave etc. it's not that hard I suppose. I don't understand why so many of these shows are so bad at just damn well telling a story, but I suspect it's cause they're trying to market too many damn things at once to many different and not necessarily overlapping demographics and trying to do it all within the framework of the same show so they just end up all over the fucking place and ripped apart by the demands of too many conflicting production committee interests. What was it Thomas Romain said when working on Basquash, something about production committee entities only caring about their own ends and actually wishing he could just fuck off back to France sometimes when sitting in the meetings?
>>

then get the fuck out, we heard your opinion faggot lord

>>137528957
>Mirai Arise

Now this I'm really excited about
>>
>>137528932

I'm making fun of how /a/ contrarianism comes across so that's kind of the point.
>>
>>137529019

Well you see, if you got a bunch of crazy ass plot twists left and right that clearly means that the story is mature,deep and sophisticated that's what the screen writers seem to believe.
>>
>>137528957

That's kind of my point. As for the AW, that and it being original is probably the only way it even gets made. Sunrise just seems to hate doing TV series now unless it's Gundam or Love Live and the very idea of doing something new and related to adaptations seems almost completely off the table these days. They're about the only major studio that seems to have actually opted for slowing down production nowadays while everyone else is going kind of full throttle.

fafner was shit though

So they got into a terminator esque time loop right?
>>
I want to give Jamie a raise.
>>
>>137529091

I just see that as more or less shit to fill time. Twist everything one way and then twist it another and make it shiny and before you know it you've got five episodes worth of content already. That's like practically a quarter of your contract fulfilled and really who cares if anything at all gets developed in a coherent or purposeful direction or not as long as you keep the dumb anime fans all hyped up and make sure they know where to buy your product with those friendly in show advertisement crawls that have cropped up over the last decade or so. Modern mecha anime in a nutshell where the goal is about attracting the most attention and hype possible, not about actually being a good show.

Nowadays I have a hard time seeing how most big budget late night anime is any better written then your average SatAM cartoon from the 80's/90's aimed at kids on a major sugar rush. It's just kind of gotten that blatantly commercial and just anything goes in terms of the writing and how they promote themselves and the merchandise. Actually come to think of it I've seen arcs of kids shows like Aikatsu from time to time that seem to have more structure and come across as less insulting than big budget late night mecha anime aimed at adults. This is also a franchise where little girl idols turn into vampires in one episode and they have to shoot donuts into their faces to turn them back.
>>
Modern mecha shows are cowardly.

Look at A/Z it's a show that sold itself as this cliche/trope destroyer and in the end. It did not have absolutely any balls to do anything at all.
>>
>>137529206

And yet somehow the show holds together better than most mecha shows that don't try to get into any time paradox plot mechanics.
>>
>>137528762
Man i would kill for a live perfomace of this ost
>>
>>137529400
that's the way really, if you try getting deep into time paradox bs, show gets fucked
keep it simple and it flows much better

It's not healthy to have such a hard time hearing opinions that don't conform with your own.

I usually do ignore BC threads and let you have your echo chamber freely. When you open a thread calling it the best mech show in years though I just have to come in and say that it's not even a contender.

Honestly, as much as I enjoyed EXODUS, it often felt like they were dragging it out too much, playing it too safe. Second half did have a bit of a body count, but considering how much they kept hyping up how real shit was going to get, I was expecting more.
>>
>>137529689
OP of the year no question. The ecchi was disappointing though. It's the problem with anime, you can't really escalate much farther beyond tit fondling without crossing the line, it gets old.

well EXODUS was way more optimistic than anything else in the franchise, but I feel that the punches hit harder than any of the ones in other entries, because of how much buildup everyone had.
>>
>>137529584
Well after you asked me that I realized that the last few years have been really shitty for mecha. G no Reconguista is the obvious choice, I guess. There's a few I haven't seen, though. Hoping this year has some good mecha shows.

It was what you call a enjoyable train wreck it was such a mess. While A/Z was what one would define as mediocre melodramatic garbage that just took itself way too seriously.

I would not shit so much on A/Z had it not had such marketing where they flat out lied.

And how does that change anything? He was flat out the same fucking person might as well said he was a clone with his memories genetically imprinted.
>>
>>137530250
I'm not saying no one died, just much less that I was expecting.

Most of those characters were relatively minor characters, most of whom only got introduced in Exodus. Yumiko was the only real casualty of the first half, and it never really got addressed in-show until the very end. Mimika got saved by Kazuki Jesus. Canon, Akira and Hiroto, I guess I was expecting more character deaths of that importance. Even Soushi got to live on, in a sense, though I am mostly fine with the ending.

Watase Aoba was a persistent motherfucker to get past all that

A/Z was like a typical A-1 Pictures show in that regard except they tried mecha for a change. I still will never understand why they thought it was going to be bigger than Gundam though unless they really just think it's that easy and fans are THAT stupid instead of just kind of stupid. Gundam was kind of the result of so many different culture shifts happening at the same time and kind of a happy accident. Maybe A/Z needed to have gotten cancelled first I don't know.

A/Z would have been legendary if they cancelled it after episode 3.

It started fun enough but then just kind of got progressively more annoying, pretentious and directionless. It also didn't really have what I would call an ending.
