Just finished SPT Layzner, I thought it was very good, up until the ending. The ending was terrible and rushed, why do people say its so good? Is the third ova episode really that much better?
>The ending was terrible and rushed, why do people say its so good?
People don't. The show was cancelled due to sponsor issues and they had to rush an ending.
The third OVA episode is better, not perfect.
I've personally never been able to watch past episode 10ish because I just end up uninterested... I do like the first two episodes a lot though and think the mech fights are pretty well animated and choreographed...
I hear this show got a bluray rerelease recently. Did anyone ever end up putting subs on the bluray version?
The third OVA is quite good. I never watched the final episode though. I think the show had serious pacing problems.They spent too much time getting too earth, too much Costerro as well. It had everything it needed to be an A Mecha anime, but the pacing and some of the antagonists, along with the cancellation, really hurt it. The main cast is really great though, and I think that the SPT's were well conceived and had very great combat.
They did the post apocalyptic setting pretty well, but they wasted so much time on the death demon squad instead of developing it properly.
This show showed me the /m/an inside me.
Without /m/'s effort to sub this show, I would had never realized that.
Thank you /m/-subs.
Anyway OP, watch ep 3 of the OVA. It removes the mess of the last ep of the tv series into coherent episode.
You certainly wouldn't hear that about Dragonar from Starseeker, she's bored to tears when she has to work on it.
Honestly, I pity her having to work on a project she clearly has no interest in at all.
Layzner is the best out of those three, L-Gaim is just a slightly more boring ZZ, and Dragonar is pretty boring overall.
Though really I'm surprised you didn't hear about VOTOMs or Dunbine, both of which are a lot more popular than Dragonar considering they have numerous sequels as well as official subtitles.
Well the original Dunbine wasn't much of a catch once they got to Earth, but New Dunbine has been subbed for years (I myself saw it nearly a decade ago). It's a nice, short D&D-style OVA with some of the best designs in the franchise (Much like the Galient OVA) and some extremely catchy tunes.
Wings of Rean is generally disliked but if you can put up with the typical Tominoisms you might like it (I personally thought it was the most enjoyable entry in the franchise)
