>can't drop because it's almost done
Does anyone actually like this garbage?
It honestly isn't the first MC becomes hitler and almost goes through with a genocide and most of the show is fun/decent until the final arc until then it has some fun parts but most of it is bland since the show was basically just taking the first 3 gundam series and trying to compress them for 8-13 year olds.
Basically don't go into AGE expecting too much since it's like gundam with the tone and complexity of Pokemon
I’m actually ok with it, they waste too much time in useless things but my expectations were low so it’s not like I feel physical paint watching it like some anons here, for me it feels like wasted potential, I kind of find Kudelia annoying and considering everything has to do with her it can truly be boring at times
good start but the lack of actual gundam fighting and poor story presentation got me kinda bored, didn't watch the most recent 2 episodes but I really hope they start fighting soon otherwise its just a huge waste of what could of been pretty good
>even Magestic Prince
What did he mean by this?
Not at all, MJP was a saviour of mecha shows for me, that a comfy gradual approach to space genre was possible.
I also enjoyed Aldnoah just for its plays on Real Robots vs Super Robots and didn't take it seriously.
G Reco & AGE are just that unredeemable in my eyes. Even the 2 seasons of Gunpla did it for me, best MILF S1 and fit girl S2 in anime for a long while.
I just keep forgetting to watch it. It's not bad but there isn't really anything in it to keep me excited enough for the next episode to give a shit. If it weren't for /m/ shitposting about it 24/7 I'd probably forget this show even exists.
It's just too Okada. It's incessently focused on the melodramatic emotional interplay between a cast of half-character effigies with no identity beyond a name and a repeated emotional pseuodepitaph they find time to spout at least once a week. The plot took a back seat, the action took a back seat, the world building took a back seat; everything was superseded by this all-consuming vapid mess of pointless melodrama that went nowhere and contributed nothing.
All I'm waiting for now is the inevitably rainbow-coloured laserbeam made of friendship to capitulate yet another Okada abortion.
>the genetics reveal was an absolute cringe feast
One small plot point that you should've been able to see a season away shouldn't affect that much.
I dropped IBO, but "too Okada" is kinda unfair when she only scripted the first 3 or four episodes. She DID do Composition, so she isn't off the hook, but I think the reason the series has so much stuttering is because every week you've basically got a new writer trying to get a handle on the characters and story progression.
I actually liked the first couple episodes too.
SEED wasn't even all that melodrama heavy. In the first third, Kira was conflicted over the idea of shooting down his best friend. In the second third, Kira was fucked into submission only for another mysterious girl to show up. In the last third, its full blow friendship time but Kira's only problems are hes a genetic freak, that hot blonde girl is actually his sister and now permanently off limits, and his fuckbuddy went somewhere.
Kudelia is definitely annoying, which is disappointing because I was waiting for a Gundam lead female that didn't annoy the fuck out of me and was better than Relena Peacecraft.
What do you think of Mineva?
She's a little bland, but I think she (and Riddhe) probably has the best arc in Unicorn and was a pretty good Peace Princess in terms of how she behaved.
Before Wing there was ZZ which made a once powerful woman who had an empire crumble to her knees for the almighty shota cock.
Yeah, man go for it.
It's pretty and has some excellent CG (thanks based Orange), and as one anon mentioned. It's maximum comfy. The first several episodes are a little wacky/randumb, but once it gets going, it's a lot of fun.
>le Hiraifaec meme
Before ZZ there was Reccoa which is the most realistic female character of all time
I can't judge Reccoa because I'm a man.
You might be a man but you're still a pussy
I stand by I enjoyed MJP a lot more than G-Reco, how'd you fuckers even survived past 3 episodes I got no clue.
Everything was lost in translation with that series, it was all about the one liners backing up the stupid shit but that doesn't cross over well to English.
Big talk for a guy who planned on crashing an asteroid into the earth just so he could get his crush's attention.
MS Igloo and war in the pocket were the only ones that really did it for me
but thunderbolt is looking pretty good
When was the last Real Robot vs Super Robot anime and I'll give it a shot and consider your opinion valid.
Don't leave me dry now unless your just feel of quips of shit. 90% gut feeling you'll reply that way as well.
what's with forced romance between Mikazuki and Kudelia? Why not with Orga instead of the autist? Why was there a kiss out of fucking nowhere that didn't lead to anything?
What is this anime senpai?
It's called "going too far with pandering and then chickening out from fear". It's a Gundam tradition.
>VVV was fun
>CA was fun
>A/Z literally reshaped the mecha genre
>with its high quality action
A/Z was partly salvaged by the score. And the ending of Season 1
if it had stayed endedwas actually good.
Season 2 was a thing that happened. I don't know why it happened, but it did, and we should learn from this
>see a ton of art expecting Wing to be filled with gay moments between Duo and Heero
>get none of those and hardly any Duo in the show at all
Is this what the life of a fujo is like?
General shitposting mecha thread?
>Exodusfags actually believe that a Hiraifaced show is the best mecha anime in years
A/Z S1 was a god awful train wreck from episode 4 and on. And even the 3 parter opener arc that Gen wrote wasn't particularly well developed either or stable to the world setting.
A/Z was garbage through and through.
But I like CA because it's fun. VVV just ended up retarded till the end.
And why you didn't say A/Z is fun?
>Shitting on Hiroyuki Sawano
I will fight you
You're arguing that because they're similar, they're bad.
I'm arguing that while they are similar they are still great.
Can't we agree that we're both faggots and leave it at that?
If they repeat the shitposting enough it'll eventually catch on I believe is the strategy being employed. it's gotten really heavy handed in February though, I'd almost argue they're overplaying it if that sort of thing seemed to matter with Gundam which just gets shitposted to death with no hope no matter what anyway. I expect Thunderbolt will get it's due eventually.
Zeon's already on its last legs by Thunderbolt. The best they can hope for is a pyrrhic victory by taking the Gundam out with them before they become stardust.
Gundam threads on /a/ are something that should just not exist period I've determined. At least the shitposting isn't bleeding over onto other sites as much as it has for most Gundam series since 00.
Even Wixoss and its 'tulpas & ghosts' story was more engaging than whatever's going on in IBO. It's even worse than Okada melodrama: it's melodrama that either repeats itself and/or feels like it goes nowhere for a lot of the time.
I've only seen Wing, Seed, Seed Destiny, Unicorn and 00.
Unicorn is my favourite but I don't feel like watching older stuff.
Just wanted to tell you guys people like me are out there.
Not him, Unicorn is actually very self contained.
It has a lot of callbacks, but what you need to know the show tells you.
There has been a bunch of conflict, muh spacenoids, muh newtypes, muh Zeon ideals, and muh Char are given plenty of exposition time, it just (to the series' credit) doesn't infodump it all at the beginning and is presented as conversational knowledge.
Sure I wouldn't rec commend doing that, but you can definitely get close to the full "Gundam UC" experience.
>hardly have any screentime of these two interacting ever since the show left Mars
>instead, more of Kudelia melodrama or thinking to herself for the nth time how useless she is
It has some fun parts but for the most part its trying to hard with making any of the characters truly sympathetic or fleshed out and has large stretches of little to no action. Only watching it for chocolate man, his little lady waifu, and Not-Garma.
This wouldn't annoy me so much if the show didn't spend so much time during the first few episodes hammering in the idea that Mikazuki essentially lives through Orga. It seemed like they were gonna build up to some moment where Orga either dies or has to leave for good causing Mika to be nothing but an empty shell wandering around waiting for him to return. This is my issue with IBO in general it keeps appearing like it's gonna build up to something and then ditches it to go focus on an entirely different thing.
Thunderbolt is an OVA series, IBO is a a TV series. Also aimed at totally different demographics but yes Thunderbolt is great.
I like a lot of pieces of this, but I'm not sure how I'll feel about the whole at the end.
Watching it with a friend, and boy was that first episode good, so it actually comes off better riding that wave and being watched together.
If you've ever watched Kamen Rider Kiva this feels like the equivalent for Gundam.
>all of the past time line
>some of the IXA stuff
It's weird, like I don't disagree with you. But I loved a lot of ideas in Kiva.
Like remember when Wataru gets Emperor and has to kill that Bear Fangire, and it's handled all dramatic.
But Wataru just watches civilians die and doesn't give a shit the rest of the time, so it feels out of place.
I got reminded of it when Mikazuki was entering the atmosphere. That scene was weird too, because it was handled all emotional and sad, like Mika was trying to sacrifice himself.
But he didn't need to dick off to fight that melee combatant enemy, and he was talking like he wanted to be all self-sacrificial, not really a trait we'd seen in him up to now.
Just both are weird fluid series in terms of tone. Sorry for the stream of consciousness shit, too drunk to get my idea across.
Already said him.
But everything else was shit. I'd still rather rewatch Kiva then Hibiki, Faiz, or even Decade and Drive mind you but its one of the weakest shows.
Like I said, not disagreeing with you.
I don't know, I just kind of feel the same about the two. Just a personal feeling.
Either way, hope they can pick up gear a bit and close it out well.
Or give the cast more characterization in crossovers.
Disappointing that of all great things, Okada makes a bad Gundam show. That was her chance for legendary status.
She still is great, as her new movie - Anthem of the Heart topping charts show, but Gundam was a failure.
There`ll never be Gundam as greet as SEED/Destiny again..
I wasn't exactly hyped about IBO, until I started watching Active Raid.
Active Raid has better visuals, fight choreography and pacing.
But here's the problem: It plays it so safe that it's boring as shit. The first half of every episode is basically garbage with generic characters doing generic things and utterly failing to be funny or endearing. And the main plot is just a Fisher Price version of Psycho Pass' without the SIBYL system.
IBO for all its flaws at least has some engaging characters and a few interesting plot turns
I can't hate on a show where a cute office cake has romantic tension with one of the MCs
Fuck. At least when 00 aired way back, literally everyone, even the shitposters enjoyed it.
Had a lot of great moments. Even when it went to shit to season 2, the mech fights were fun and 00 unlimited gn aspulls pulling of teleportation and a lot of neat shit was great.
Now we dont have anymore of that. Greco shitposters actually hate it, age was mostly a meh show that most people dropped and ibo's writing and budget are all over the place.
Where did it all go wrong?
Honestly the only thing that is "wrong" with this show is fucking pace.
They took too long to reach earth and then they'll rush the earth part.
Less robot is actually a good change for the franchise, otherwise it would be the same MotW formula that's outdated.
Well they hadn't even been in the same place for several weeks or interacted for that matter.
However if there won't be a follow-up to this build-up, I don't understand why they'd do it in the first place.
>tfw no BC love
SAY CONNECT WITH DIO

Literally every Okada anime that is 2 cours is like that, IBO is no different.
So you've already stopped watching? Because that's about as likely to happen as these two actually fucking.
I have seen MSG, Zeta, Victory, G, Wing, and Turn A twice. I have scene G-reco, X, Seed, Seed Destiny, 00, and ZZ once.
I love Gundam but I dropped this shit. Same with AGE, fucking garbage.
Hope is but the first step on the road to disappointment.
I'm still going to keep faith, anon. I understand that you don't want to see me disappointed, but I have a good feeling that we'll see Orga spilling spaghetti when Merribit does something lewd in his presence in the next two weeks.
Don't get overhyped.
I went into it like that and came out mildly disappointed. The choreography was wildly blown out of proportion, it was just okay.
I would say G-Reco was more enjoyable overall.
It's not even close to being the best of 2014 though.
What's the best mecha anime in the last 15 years and why is it pic related
Indeed Kudelia has overshadow everyone else, Orga is usually a good mix of naiveness and competence but he is only a support character now, so much for a dual MC story, but well in the end Mika is not doing much better
It also had nice art from the character designer
looked awful in the anime though
IBO hate is a meme which G-reco fags try to push as truth.
G-Reco hate is truth which G-reco fags try to push as a meme
The fucker has to stop sticking mika kobayashi into literally every single thing he does.
I always like the music in his works, and then some retarded vocal bit comes up and shits it up.
Bottom line, it ends up being bad.
>implying last episode won't end with a declaration of war between Earth Sphere and Mars
>implying orphans won't get drafted into it
>implying Chocolate Man won't become #1 Gjallarhorn and S2 Big Bad
I would tend to disagree about your example. For one thing, Active Raid 7 had a different first half and I liked 6's beginning too. For another, I do think the characters are pretty funny and occasionally endearing.
The main plot hasn't really been focused on. But there's almost nothing uniquely shared with Psycho-Pass precisely because there is no such grand system in control of society. Everything else can be found in various works that long predate either show.
I enjoy IBO myself, but it's going to a very different type of narrative. Active Raid is more traditionally episodic like a Tokusatsu series, while IBO wants to have this strong central narrative around its cast that might slow down yet keeps being the center of attention.
There's nothing wrong with liking both shows for different reasons. I do not expect them to share elements or styles, because IBO is attempt to be a lot more serious (save occasional jokes) than Active Raid has ever tried to be.
I actually like the whole bait and switch they pulled.
but I also thought "why aren't any of the pilots girls" the whole way through wing as a child, so I might be a little biased
>This wouldn't annoy me so much if the show didn't spend so much time during the first few episodes hammering in the idea that Mikazuki essentially lives through Orga.
You say that like it's a good thing even though it's shown pretty early on that it's overbearing Orga quite a bit. Not to mention the very first scene showing how they developed that sense of dependence by killing somebody. It was never healthy to begin with and you should've known what kind of development path their relationship would take since the beginning unless you're some kind of extreme edgelord.
Kudelia is only there to balance Mika out, not to take him away from Orga.
