Why should anyone give a shit? So you can say that your taste is superior to mine?
I'm finding the damage control on display here quite amusing, coming from someone who enjoyed g-reco and finds the more hardcore g-reco fans cancerous twerps.
>>13694020 is absolutely correct as well, had it placed well it would shitposted into every gundam thread.
>wonders why shitty shows don't rank on list
There's very little damage control going on, its just funny that people would take 2ch's opinion as merit only when their opinion aligns with yours. Its ultimately meaningless anyways as >>13694103 pointed out.
16. 143 Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo
So you think Star Wars is the year's best movie because it's in the top 25 ticket sales of all time?
No, of course not because you know that quantity has nothing to do with quality.
>Cross Ange in 16th
Speaking as the guy that corrected the OP of that thread on what the actual content was then, I would say yes, this one has merit...but only if you consider the equivalent of a google poll that /a/ does meritorious.
>18. 136 Houkago no Pleiades
As much as I want that show to be there I am struggling really hard to believe any list that has that show there.
Plus there is legitimately fuck all correlation to BD sales.

How the fuck can an anime be a success yet fail with its target audience? It being a success means it did capture its audience.
>How the fuck can an anime be a success yet fail with its target audience? It being a success means it did capture its audience.
Americans say its a success, despite it failing in Japan. Think about it this way, where does the Gundam money come from? Japanese buying kits, blu rays and the sponsors during the airing of the show or from 200 fat americans streaming and downloading it from bakabt?

That really surprised me.

God damn it Japan, I trusted you.
That's pretty understandable for a plot heavy sequel series that actually needed audiences to watch the first and movies to make any sense of it.
So as one of the few people left around here not actively bashing one over the other, can I just say that all this whining from either side has become incredibly cancerous? I don't mean that in the normal "stop spamming, faggot" sense that we normally see around here. I mean it in the "holy shit, every single god damn thread in /m/ and /a/ has someone talking about this" cancerous.
Also, let's be honest, people. If the tables were turned and G-Reco had been the one on the list, we'd be seeing this exact same thread reversed. This high-and-mighty attitude that you G-Reco guys have adopted is nothing more than padding your shitty collective ego. Stop acting like the list means nothing to you, especially since we all know you'd sure as shit be using it as bait if it favored you.
To each their own, people. Just enjoy the shit you like. Get over it. Maybe someday soon we can stop talking about both G-Reco and IBO in such a horrid fashion.
holy fuck, the amount of autism flowing through these boards right now is intense. everyone around here needs to stop pretending g-reco was anything more than average at best. christ, it's always /a/ and /m/ sitting around jerking eachother off about shitty shows and bashing everything else.
But it wasn't average. If it was average no one would talk about it because there was nothing of note - because it was average. I don't know what kind of anime you watch where G-Reco is the average kind of anime.
G-Reco wasn't average in any sense. It was either incredibly confusing and therefore very bad to some
very stupidpeople, and it was a nice, fresh breath of air and an interesting, fun, beautiful experience for other people with taste, and therefore quite good.
But in no way was it "average".
>that moment you realize G-reco fags are like a hivemind army of Clawshrimpys
OP here, I don't really care for IBO at all, I actually dropped it. I prefer the aesthetic of Reco (although I could do without most of the faces), but I haven't finished it yet either, and I may never.
I can't stand the people like this >>13697029, but watching them be pathetic is hilarious.
I'd have made the thread if G-Reco had popped up higher too because seeing people praise bad animation is also very amusing.
Bedsides it's worthwhile to know what other opinions exist or else you end up with an absurd vacuum of group-think, like /tg/ or /a/
Just like how detractors bring up that ANN article that proves that they're right about G-Reco? Even if it was a mistranslation that came from yaraon as clickbait? The same site they used when it was reported G-Reco sold 4k? And now youre doing it again with using Japanese reddit as a source. Somehow I think they deserve the right to gloat after all that bullshit.
Is it weird that I think both G-reco and IBO are disappointing, and would rather morn for the current state of Gundam, rather than celebrate about it?
Starting to think this franchise needs a nice break.
Agreed, simply because the sample size of the poll is ridiculously small and the region it belongs to is obsessed with cutesy and ecchi shit.
That said, holy fuck, both sides of this shit need to calm the fuck down. This bait has been used multiple times over the last several hours in both /m/ and /a/, so why the fuck are people still responding to it?
Rather than make another shitposting general for the show I'll just ask here, did the changes to the last episodes in g-reco ever amount to anything substantial enough to make chasing up the blu rays worth it over the tv batch I got when it aired? Can't find shit on the archives.
It's kind of going both ways, simply because G-Reco guys are shitting all over IBO, probably because everyone was shitting on G-Reco several months back and kind of still are. At this point, it's nothing more than an aggressive pissing contest between your everyday faggots.
Figured as much, thanks. Wasn't sure cause I remember there being some hype about it lining things up with turn a that I didn't want to read too much into since I hadn't seen the show yet.

So. Cross Ange spinoff when?
Featuring Ange switching between Hilda and Tusk on the regular and running her nation and cafe and having a friendly and regular rivalry with Salamandinay across golf, racing, and other sports?
I was away from the board while it was airing, the shitposting on G-reco seems to go both ways, was it always this way or did the chicken or the egg come first?
G-reco was easily the best Gundam since Turn A, which is more damning about the other shows than it is complementary.
How come Hilda wasn't at the cafe in the epilogue, anyway?
In fact, coming to think of it, she doesn't appear in the epilogue one bit. The bridge bunnies get more attention than her, despite being one of Ange's "knights".
Those are called trolls you drooling retard. The entire thing is just any number of people including one shitposting extreme contradicting viewpoints intentionally, and the only people dumber are anyone who think they're real opinions.
I hated G-Reco but will say if the show got 50 episodes, it would have been much much better. It was rushed to all hell and thus you see the terrible pacing, plot holes and just shitty characterization.
The worst thing about G-reco "fan" bait posts like this is that they pretend its directly related to /m/'s favorite entry in the series just to make them mad. People can only take so much of them pretending to be retarded.
While it was airing people didn't shitpost about g-reco, they just posted that they thought it was shit and why they thought it was shit. The small number of fans in the general got mad at this, you know the "if you think its shit why are you still watching it" sort of thing and didn't realize that people were of course going to watch it to the end even if they didn't like it since they have high hopes from the series and the director. In response to how butthurt the g-reco fans got, honest to goodness trolls now bait them while also pretending that the show is flawless to get people who don't like the show up a pole as well.
>The small number of fans in the general got mad at this, you know the "if you think its shit why are you still watching it" sort of thing and didn't realize that people were of course going to watch it to the end even if they didn't like it since they have high hopes from the series and the director
So history is repeating itself with IBO.
>While it was airing people didn't shitpost about g-reco
No, they are shitposting and asking the same question every day/week and that same question can be answered by paying attention to the anime.
Huh? Ibo generally well liked but the vocal minority who hates it are the biggest shitposters who like to make bait. No one is saying IBO is the greatest gundam in the last 20 years, people just think it is solid gundam.
Whereas in G-reco the level of hate and shitposting was insane. You could barely go through a thread without people arguing why the series was trash and how the plot was a mess.
Those were different people. Its gundam so many different people watched it.
The same thing happens with every show that isn't super popular. IBO isn't nearly as unpopular on 4chan as GR was and the expectations aren't nearly as high, so it will get a fraction of the shitposting in the long run. G-reco is a special example in terms of scale because it fell very short for a lot of people and the fans got extra mad.
>Those were different people. Its gundam so many different people watched it.
Yes they are different person who asked the same question. If you are here since the dawn of shitposters from mal, anime facebook group, mahq or whatever it is that invaded /m/ back then you will certainly be fed up.
Considering no Gundam series will impress you faggots, what point is there to argue. This board is notorious to shit even the classics.
I think this anime is solid addition to the Gundam franchise and if you disagree then cool more power to ya.
>the fans got extra mad.
I think you are new here. Most of old Gundam fans who already went through most Gundam series and Tomino works didn't complain anything about it. Only those millenials who saw Seed and want some hardcore dark gritty war (aka most gaijin) were the one who got mad.
>Considering no Gundam series will impress you faggots
Speak for yourself. The series that impress me is G-Reco of course. Tomino actually critics Japanese government through his works, no other animator dares to do that.
>I think this anime is solid addition to the Gundam franchise and if you disagree then cool more power to ya.
Thanks for the power, I will use that power to unsubscribe from your blog.
There was a lot of complaining anon. Pass me whatever you are smoking. Constant discussion about the pacing issues, story points going nowhere, animation was subpar largely throughout the show and largely the lack of information on a lot of characters and places.
This show was a trainwreck in all regards and so it isn't surprised most gundam fans hated it.
>Considering no Gundam series will impress you faggots
Considering IBO fails at delivering anything impressive or remarkable or of any susbtance whatsoever I don't see why we should praise it for being anything but a silent fart.
>This board is notorious to shit even the classics
No board is a hivemind, unless the show is absolutely trash
like in Aldnoah Zero or Comet Lucifer level of trash, people will point at all kinds of problems.
>I think this anime is solid addition to the Gundam franchise
Damn blogshit about your sterile opinion no one cares about.
Reco is only impressive if tou take the time to look into all th stuff that went into it. People still complaining about why Mask is being a cunt or why Manny is a terrible friend just need to keep watching meme shows, they'll never get anything else.
>There was a lot of complaining anon
As I said earlier, it occurs only for a non newtype people or those with ADHD. If you don't have a newtype power, you won't be able to follow it although it is a very simple story.
Good point, just like any other anime that didn't give you exposition on it.
The problem with millenials is that they want to be spoonfeed everything and can't decipher any information by themself. That's why show like OPM is popular because you shut your brain and you just enjoy it. But then it give arise to a new kind of retard who claimed that OPM is a gag show. It is stupid to be honest with my family member.
No one said the story was complex, people were complaining about a certain place or faction would be brought up with very little context about it. It got to the point where in the end there was so many things happening that had very little backstory that you end up just saying "this needed to be longer and in more indepth."
I can't tell if you are being a trolling retard or actually being serious. Doesn't matter, the convo will be ended after I post this.
If you follow Tomino interviews you can easily understand why Tomino made G-Reco like that.
I doubt you can find his interview though considering the culture of otakus who want to be spoonfeed.
>The problem with millenials is that they want to be spoonfeed everything and can't decipher any information by themself
I don't understand the people who complain about GR ending being rushed. Is it showing too much and not telling enough? It's the same as King Gainer ending with people whining about them not getting to Yapan.
>If you follow Tomino interviews you can easily understand why Tomino made G-Reco like that
You don't even need the interviews, the show itself is rather transparent on the subject.
>It got to the point where in the end there was so many things happening that had very little backstory
Just like real world. You don't know how and when are those ISIS members training in their sekrit desert base then suddenly boom or whatever happened and some people died because of suicide bombing.
You don't need to be feed up every single details when the protagonist grew and borned from his mother's womb, how he went to school, etc but suddenly you saw this adolescent or kid thrown into a middle of a narration.
That's how real life works. Complaining about that means that you need to grow up already.
No matter how much you try, you can never convince me G-Reco is even a remotely decent Gundam.
Actually blaming the viewer for not understanding the horrendous pacing, lack of context on very important locations and horrible characters is amusing.
'They have to be spoon fed because they can't understand Tomino's brilliant writing" Kek. The delusional is strong in this one.
I wish Tomino would start working on something new. I can't see him working on Reco movies as anything but as a desperate attempt to get kids to watch it so they can get all the messages he left for them there.
>No matter how much you try, you can never convince me G-Reco is even a remotely decent Gundam
I fear to hear what you consider a decent Gundam show.
>Actually blaming the viewer for not understanding the horrendous pacing, lack of context on very important locations and horrible characters is amusing
I don't think you can blame the audience for having a hard time following the show since it was often pushy and erratic. I do blame people complaining about it making no sense
which is utterly wrongbecause they can't pay attention though.
>67 unique posters.
And people wonder why these threads are so cancer.
>'They have to be spoon fed because they can't understand Tomino's brilliant writing" Kek
Yes. Look at your own post
>Actually blaming the viewer for not understanding the horrendous pacing, lack of context on very important locations and horrible characters is amusing.
Tomino only has himself to be blamed because he misunderstood about how lowly the intelligence of general otaku.
That's why you need to look up at Tomino's interview.
>story points going nowhere,
>animation was subpar largely
Post some webms, because I'm sure if it was subpar like IBO's "animation" people would be spamming webms or gifs as proof.
Yes, I am mad that only patrician will ever understand G-Reco the magnum opus of anime works. Pleb like you and many other won't be able to recognize it.
Yes, it was sad that nips kids understood G-Reco fine, unlike adults who posted on 4chan /m/ board.
>adults who posted on 4chan
>implying most shitposters aren't blatantly underage
She's the mascot during the day.
But in the evening, she showers and dresses up to be Ange's arm candy.
Goes to 20 different sites to see the score they give G-Reco, average it up to not even be a 6/10.
Sad to see such a great show be shitted on by everyone. Common complain is how the plot is confusing and how the characters are paper thing.
Yet shows like SAO and Cross Ange consistently rate higher than this, fuck this. People just love to have everything spoon fed to them and not just take a minute to think about things. How is a show this good be rated so bad?
I enjoyed it. Why should I care if anyone else enjoyed it?
This is the danger of hive mind mentality.
watched G reco. didn't like it. MC showed almost no signs of development. the whole brother/sister thing really made no sense. overall for me the plot made no sense whatsoever to me, seemed really lacking overall. i like a show that makes me feel excited when i see the MC succeed, and in order for that to happen there needs to be character development. i enjoyed IBO due to the overall designs/theme (but i do like war stories). recten designs were pretty comfy, but i didnt like how there were so many designs in G reco that you couldn't keep track of all of them.>>13694490
prison school is fucking gold.
i dont understand the A/Z hate that goes on here.
>Grunts VS Superweapon not all that common on protags side in mecha series, mostly the other way around
>season 2 mecha designs
the combat was refreshing too, watching inaho tear apart an enemy piece by piece.
Comet Lucifer was actually shit though. the little girl was so annoying and it never got old. the first 4 episodes are just SNEK IS ROBOT WHEN GUY HURT. IM KAWAII ANIME GURL
to be fair SAO had some character development. G Reco literally had the MC as someone with no loyalty to country or home, who abandoned his (original) military post for a piece of ass who, if he banged, would end up breeding a deformed incest babby.
>how the plot is confusing
>not just take a minute to think about things
This is one of my primary problems with the debates about Reco's plot. Holes are very often dismissed with comments such as these, where the fan berates the non-fan for not "putting it together" himself.
Has it ever occurred to you that in doing this you are making up things that are never confirmed by the show?
Case in point:
I remember a thread where an anon was complaining about not understanding why the G-Self was tied up when they went into Sankt Porto. Another anon offered a lengthy string of cues revolving around Belliri's personality and fear of taboos and explained that Belliri had to be dragged against his will into Sankt Porto in violation of a taboo.
Then I posted a screenshot of Belliri volunteering, with no prompting from anyone, to go along with Aida because the people at the elevator obviously weren't going to see their side of things anyway, and this person simply refused to acknowledge it.
It is true that, were it not for that one line of dialogue, his explanation would have made sense and would have explained the situation by putting together context clues. The problem comes from the fact that this is nothing more than headcanon. Even though there may be other instances where these "think about it for a minute" holes are not contradicted, they are often not confirmed either.
I am reminded of people in SEED threads complaining about how the anime did not show how Kira got from the Strike up to the PLANT except for a single shot of him lying unconscious in the rain on Malchio's doorstep. Detractors argued that if you needed a manga side-story to fill in a plot hole, that's bad writing. So if the need for Astray means SEED is bad writing, what does the need for headcanon to explain Reco say about its writing?
>Has it ever occurred to you that in doing this you are making up things that are never confirmed by the show?
Nope, because they support their explanations with things that happened in the show.
Your example is shit.
Bellri volunteered to go
Going to Sankt Porto isn't a violation of the taboo.
Flying around in your TABOO VIOLATING ROBOT is.
None of these things are contradict each other and it's not head canon because it's explained in the show. Why the would characters in universe have to constantly reiterate stuff they know?
Then you ask "Why doesn't he go without the G-Self"
Because Bellri's not an idiot and knows a fire fight might break out. He follows the taboos as he is able, but he's also willing to violate them to stop others from doing so.
I think it's just a fundamental difference as human beings.
I personally hate shows that spend a lot of time explaining everything. It's why I can't stand IBO. I find much more enjoyment out of shows that present you the situation and have the characters make choices that follow their own moral compass that you might be go "Why'd they do that?" at first but then things make sense based on previous information and previous character action.
It makes things feel more natural.
The #1 thing I hate in anime is characters who are inconsistent with their characterization and morals. G-Reco isn't.
Look all I am going to say is G-Reco can be best enjoyed by watching twice and catching all the little things you missed the first time around.
There is no excuse for this not being at least a 7/10 and not cracking the top 50 anime of 2015. That is utterly ludicrous.
Mother of god, no. The show sucks. We should be watching a show twice, just to catch everything. Fuck that. I should be able to watch the show in my first viewing and understand everything from just that.
If a show is so convoluted and the plot is such a mess that the fucking fans insist others to watch it multiple times, then it is crap. You can't argue "all these people are too stupid to follow the anime and thus don't understand the brilliance of G-Reco" because that is ridiculous.
I have no problem with a niche community enjoying G-Reco but don't paint everyone who doesn't like the show as a drooling idiot who can't understand Tomino's writing.
lol I thought you Rectards were masters of comprehension.
The question was not
"Why doesn't he go without the G-Self"
The question was
"Why is the G-Self tied up?"
Nice job of making up something to shoot down that I didn't even ask while refusing to acknowledge the plot hole. You've proved my point nicely.
>throwing pathetic insults at people for not liking their shit show?
Yes because telling people that all the information you need in the show is given to you subtlety instead of spoonfed to you like a child is throwing insults.
If anime fans could take their head out of their own asses and actually watch the show paying attention, they could see what a good show G-Reco is.
>The #1 thing I hate in anime is characters who are inconsistent with their characterization and morals. G-Reco isn't.
G-Reco isn't a character.
Luin Lee is an inconsistent character in G-Reco though.
>MC showed almost no signs of development
Literally too subtle for you.
>the whole brother/sister thing really made no sense
You're not making any sense.
>overall for me the plot made no sense whatsoever to me
You're basically admitting being an ADHD retard.
>i like a show that makes me feel excited when i see the MC succeed
What you're looking for is likely shonenshit.
>i enjoyed IBO due to the overall designs/theme
IBOfags being meme eaters isn't a meme.
It's really amazing how you completely ignored the first part of the post Facebook-kun and just cherry picked what you wanted to stir shit up and focused instead on the second part of the post that used to answer the question you'd undoubtedly ask after having your first one answered.
Because Bellri didn't want to violate the taboo but still wanted to go. If you can't make that connection how can you even watch mecha without asking "How does that giant robot work?" "How does that giant robot get powered?" "Why was there a giant robot there for the pilot to find?"
>Luin Lee is inconsistent
Luin's pretty one dimensional honestly.
He's just your token minority who is trying to prove he's just as good if not better than members of the non-minority and he takes it to zealot levels as he continues to get fucked.
explain his character development then. if you want to defend your series then fucking explain what character development bellri had. most gundam shows i've seen so far are either war stories or coming of age stories.
bellri didnt lose a single fight.
>the whole brother/sister thing wasnt needed
i didnt like the plot
>wow anon you sure are a fucking fuckhead retard
that just proves my point the best thing that Reco fans can come up with when someone asks questions about plot/disagrees with them all they can do is call names
>Because Bellri didn't want to violate the taboo but still wanted to go.
And where in the show is this stated to be the reason the G-Self was tied up?
Because if you can't post a screenshot of this, you're only reinforcing my point.
>second part of the post that used to answer the question you'd undoubtedly ask after having your first one answered.
You're insisting that you're right because you *imagine* that I'd have asked that question. And no, the first question was *not* answered until this post, and it was answered with *exactly* the same theory that I am stating to be fan speculation with no support from the show. You are literally only repeating what I questioned, not offering proof of anything.
I can sum up how fucking retarded your post is by telling you that Bellri was always on the side of the Capital Guard you fucking moron.
I remember G-Self being sealed up because of the taboo pretty fucking clearly and I sure never stopped to deliberate about it, was there seriously no dialogue about it?
>oh boy im captured by pirates lets make friends.
who the fuck thinks like that
How is Gundam Reconguista? Gundam Reconguista is really bad! I was thinking, “What are they doing?” (laughs) Compared to this Parasyte, which was fairly interesting… Tomino… How should I put this? He doesn’t engage with anime fans. It’s fine to make it for today’s kids, but who does he think kids today are? Who does he think the kids that watch Yo-kai Watch are? (laughs) I don’t know what’s what. I watch a fair amount of anime, and I can’t figure out what’s going on. Ordinary people watch this and don’t know what’s happening, but Tomino thinks it has to be like this. Tomino hasn’t changed at all. (groans) Tomino… Ugh! Dialogue won’t work, lecturing won’t work… [...] Nope, I’m not watching Gundam Reconguista.
Former president of GAINAX
Author, wrote a ton of books, you can check on wikipedia for the full list
so uh gainax doesnt count as anything for the anime industry. good to know!
The only thing remotely remarkable about him was being Gunbuster's scriptwriter, and even that was bad.
Oh but you still treat him like he actually knows anything and isn't just bashing G-Reco to get clicks on an article.
You haters have nothing better to do right? Are you so salty that you couldn't understand a show as simple as G-Reco?
>was there seriously no dialogue about it?
None at all. Belliri is flying around in it, they try to go to the lower dock and take the elevator, and then when they leave the lower dock to go to the upper dock the G-Self is wrapped in tape for no apparent reason and being towed by Aida. Then a few minutes later it breaks out of the tape and it's never mentioned why they did that.
One anon theorized that it was because Belliri wanted to be dragged "against his will" so he wouldn't technicall be breaking the taboo by entering under his own power, another suggested that it was like the tape seals on the weapons when you visit Side 6 and was supposed to show that G-Self wasn't going to attack. There were probably a couple more theories from fans, but not one actual word about it in the show itself.
>all of you were the ones that stirred up shit when your meme anime didnt get on 2ch list
Literally the first reply was
>Giving a shit about what they think
If you think all the people in this thread took the bait then you're an idiot
Oh hi I didn't realize MAL was here
If you need everything spelled out for me, then G-Reco and Fafner aren't anime for me.
I'm sorry that you feel challenged and upset that the directors of those anime expect you to think and make logical conclusions.
And there goes the ol G-Reco condescension mode. Plot holes exist, anon. The fact that you're using your imagination to fill them in does not alter that fact. You are making up your own explanation for something the show overlooked. The show isn't "challenging" me, you're just in denial about its incomplete narrative.
But do please tell me again that I'm stupid, maybe suggest an anime that you dislike for me to stick to. I love it when you do that.
Fuck you Houkago no Pleiades was great. It was like seeing Gainax back to form specially with the science references in that show. Although I'm wondering why that one is that high? I don't even think it sold that well.
