When did you realize that Tomino "lost it?" First signs?

Did he ever really 'have it'?
>>
>>13711504
The first episode of Astro Boy he work on where a robot killed himself because he saw the future.
>>
>>13711504
I don't think he's changed. His writing has been weirdly incoherent forever. Gundam 0079 was just quite 'together' compared to his other stuff. And I like the strange rambling storyline in most of his stuff. Even loved Brain Powerd and G-Reco
>>
>>13711509
There were no incoherency in Dunbine, L-Gaim or Xabungle. They were all pretty easy to follow.

But G Reco was a true mess.
>>
>>13711516
G-reco is not that much harder to follow then those shows you listed. The only reason you understood those shows better is because you knew more about them before hand.
>>
>>13711516
G-reco was a mess because it was 26 episodes and the story was cut up a little. This combined with tomino's writing makes it kind of hard to understand for people not used to it

I had more trouble understanding things like Dunbine and Ideon

He's always been a crazy fucker. Just sometimes his works hit it off with the right crowd, either because of random chance or because he worked along with someone for long enough that they managed to contain him.

I wish he would've done more comedic stuff like Xabungle in his career, it seems to fit him more. A lot of his dramatic shows end up being weird masturbatory sessions featuring embarrassingly poor writing.

It's kinda hard to see Tominospeak in English because a translator would either have to try and make things as crazy, or try and write proper discernible English.

I love Xabungle but to say its free from Tomino's atypical weirdness because is purely comedic is retarded especially when the plot is paper thin and used mainly as a vehicle to get the cast into hilarious situations to quip.

Hey, the 3 day rule and the blue stones thing were deliberately arbitrary shit made up by the Innocent for their initial "forcing the Civillians to get fed up with their shit and rebel/evolve" plan.

If you stopped going to /pol/ and watched some of his shows other than G-Reco you'd realize Tomino isn't liberal, hell he doesn't even dislike war, the message of that show is that people who try to go to war after a long period of doing nothing will just not work, as it will ultimately be their own fall.

The 3 day rule never made sense in show but the blue stones were never real to begin with. Tomino shows are only as "incoherent" depending on if you like them or not but because Xabungle is a 4th wall breaking comedy its okay. And yeah in regards to Timp its never explained why he killed Jiron's parents as well.

G Reco is barely harder to follow than L-Gaim, what G Reco sucks at is giving proper context for the things they talk about and even then it makes sense if you just keep watching and read the subs because you end up seeing for yourself what most of the things they mention are and the pacing is awful as well for a 26 episode series. The only thing worse than it I've seen out of Tomino is the Turn A movies.

That just doesnt work for most people because they get turned off when they get confused by something. If I continued to go by /m/'s critique of G Reco I'd say barely anyone here read anything that wasn't battle dialogue which always boils down to MC shouting at people who can't hear him.

Victory.

Then Turn A. I mean, who in their right mind would have tried to force all series, UC or otherwise, to end in one final series, knowing full well it would still continue on? And who in their right mind would let someone drastically redesign the iconic Gundam so much it's hated for so many years and only now, in recent years, is accepted at all?

G-Reco wasn't much better than Turn A, but it was what Turn A should have been, with a different enough but still more familiar take on the standard Gundam design, though the story has pacing issues.

G-Reco made clear that he's senile already. I mean, sure, all his shows have autistic characters and shitty pacing, but G-Reco definitely takes the cake. It's such an incoherent mess it's not even funny:

The choppy editing, the abrupt cuts, the exposition dumps, the lack of context, all those different factions with poorly explained motivations and goals, the awkward scenes with people working together to do anything one scene, then trying to kill each others the next, and holy shit the dialogue, man. The autism is real. Every single time anybody opens their mouth is to say some nonsense, or if they ever say something coherent, then the next character will go off on a completely unexpected tangent. And all that while they make spastic movements every so often. The whole show feels like an ADHD fueled fever nightmare.

Kamille can at least actually get out of bed by the end of ZZ. The only info we've ever gotten beyond that was some side material saying he became a doctor and moved to the moon with Fa, but like all things not animated that's only canon until something else contradicts in.

>>13712806
I have seen it though. It just doesn't feel Gundam despite all those homages/parodies of certain iconic MS. I don't hate it either, but it isn't anything I'd enjoy watching past a 2nd run to miss anything from the initial run.

The story was ok, but nothing outstanding, and really didn't make sense in trying to link every series prior to Turn A, to it and end it there. It may as well have been its own original series like Brain Powered; just change the MS designs a bit more to not homage other MS, and omit the other Gundam series flashbacks to some generic black histories and leave everything else as-is.

Basically, the plot and setting doesn't feel distinctly Gundam, and would have been better suited as a non-Gundam entry.
>>
>>13712836
I'm pretty sure it would had gotten a better reception if it had never been a Gundam show, in fact.

>>13711521
The only reason you say this is because you've read a thousand /m/ threads about it so now you can follow it easily.
>>
>>13712845
It would have been better if it was just pure Syd Mead mecha in future Victorian setting, like those older sci-fi novels set in a future Victorian setting but with seemingly random high-tech elements.

In fact, there's at least one or two old novels that almost has the exact same core setup. Earth bombed back to the Victorian age, survivors on the Moon wanting to return for resources and whatnot, advance scouts sent in, some defect and end up joining and even leading the Earth forces to gradually repel the incoming Moonvaders using salvaged tech, and it ends with the big Moonvader bad guy and his special ship destroyed.

I think Turn-A is a good story because it doesn't fall into the same tropes that we've seen in a dozen other series in the franchise.
>>
>>13713127
It's different, sure. But it manages to piss away 50 episodes on almost nothing.

Why is it that when Tomino got 50 episodes he absolutely wastes almost all of them, but when he gets 25 eps his shows are almost incoherent?
>>
>>13713135
Some people aren't good with pacing. Yet, it somehow managed to work for Zambot 3, of all things. Maybe he's much more comfortable with doing shows the way they looked back in the 70s?

>Yet, it somehow managed to work for Zambot 3
Not really
>>
>>13713257
Well at any rate he needs at least 39-43 episodes to do something reasonably paced (although even then it's not a full guarantee, since Ideon is plodding while Daitarn chased its own tail for the majority of the show). The downside is, barely much shows have that kind of episode total nowadays, putting aside Tomino getting too old to do full shows alone.
>>
>>13713204
>Yet, it somehow managed to work for Zambot 3, of all things.
That is because he made Zambot thinking he was going to turn it into a movie. He thought about the emotional climaxes he wanted and then he put the other episodes around it.
Too bad the movie never happened.

You Tuna fans really need a better respond than "lol he probably didn't even see it".

I saw it years ago, and apparently it failed to make any impression on me because I was fighting to stay awake watching it.

He started it because, according to people from Venus Globe, war speeds development and evolution.
