He served his purpose well in a series that served its purpose well, which was being fun. Dont get why there are people who are rabidly into TTGL but even more weird is that there are people who rabidly hate it. And even weirder is that people like Code Geass now

It's like Char's Counterattack if it weren't shit.

Joke's on you, because I like both shows and always have. There are people who hate both and those will probably be closer to your tastes though.

Pretty lame of them to rip off that scene from Ashita no Joe in order to make people sympathize with Kamina. Other than that, it was okay.

It's a really commonly homaged scene, dumbass. Not that I disagree. Characters like Kamina, Gai, Roy, and anyone else who's the "hotblooded idiot friend" type are all poorly-written garbage.
>>
>>13716709
Gai and Roy were also cases of mentors sacrificing themselves, but they weren't copying any other show's scene shot by shot. They deserve more respect.

He was on his way to check up on his Aestivalis, and he got shot in "self-defense" from afar by a group of glorified PMC salarymen. On top of not getting a badass heroic death like he hoped for, his death was played as a very dark joke

Not because everyone was stupid, Char was just wantonly throwing lives at his problem and it just sorta worked out. Without the mind-controlled genocide, he wouldn't have succeeded.

You don't know that Char's plan wouldn't have worked though. Nobody has proven that the Earth wouldn't have recovered and Gundam just leaves the question unanswered. And people still felt sad even though he died bickering with Amuro about Lalah as it stands.

It's a metaphorical sacrifice, not a literal one. Akito still looks back on what Gai taught him.

Why do people like to make this sound so evil? Anime studios make anime to sell toys so kids can buy (and play with) them.

What mind-controlled genocide?

>>13716745

We do though. Earth's ecosystem was unlikely to be destroyed in the first place, just damaged enough to need thousands of years to recover. Even when Earth was pared down to the point people had to eat each other out of desperation people still clung to it though according to G-Reco and managed to eek out a living. It also says that living in space long term didn't turn out to be a good thing and both the people in Turn-A and G-Reco wanted to return to Earth, not leave it.

People didn't advance in to newtypes by living in space en-mass long-term, there was no perfect or even better society, spacenoids still treated each other like shit and had to be separated out in to small but distant colonies that barely interacted to keep peace and living in space sucked shit. Nothing Char wanted to do would have turned out well according to later series.
>>
>>13716737
You realize TTGL aired at like 9am on sundays? Its for babies. Fun is the main qualifier.

Because you're a dumbass?
>>
>>13717014
It wasn't a cause and effect thing though. They were already mind controlled long before that happened. No such genocide.
>>
>>13716979
Tomino wasn't really thinking that far ahead when he wrote Char's Counterattack.
>>
>>13717025
He mind-controlled them for the explicit purpose of making them disposable. He wasn't being overdramatic when he told Suzaku he would become a monster.
>>
I used to think TTGL was the shit. I rewatched it recently, and it is nowhere near as badass as I thought it was. I think the charm comes in the form of unexpected humor and plot twists, and if you already know all of them, it's just kind of bland. Same for Gayass(You were all thinking it), KLK, Fooly Cooly, most of Gundam, Evangelion, etc.

Basically, when it was new, it was good, but now it's blended in with the rest of the putrid pile of cranked out anime. You just don't encounter any new thoughts or plots anymore, and THAT's why people get pissy about certain series, not that they actually hate it, just that it bores them and they can't figure out why, so they make a reason up. It's just the shaky bridge effect.
>>
>>13717063
Which is honestly why I like Eureka 7 so much. It kowtows to the memes of anime, but at the same time, has the plot undergo regression of aggression, instead of building up the character to be the ultimate fighting machine. The series also makes several jabs about social norms and pointless bigotry. The characters and plot are as recycled as any other, but the blend sits well with me, like wasabi and ginger potato chips. That and waifus.

Fuck AO though. That series was truly trash, and blatantly ignored what the original series established, and also basically acknowledged that AO wasn't canon and nothing happened. Waste. Of. Time. The robot designs were also lame by comparison.

Are we thinking of the same show? Other than Kamina dying that soon, I had everything pegged down pretty early on. It's not like the protags ever lose. Lordgenome's warning had me immediately thinking "He was keeping Earth undercover from aliens or some shit."
>>
>>13717129
No, plot twists like the leading personality not being the main character, especially since the episode previews lead you to believe he is, Buta being the true hero, Nina being the Antispiral antenna, Viral not actually being a jackass, Yoko becoming a sexy teacher type, and the true star of the show, Leeron. Just, Leeron.

By fucking who? The novelty isn't why those series are great. FLCL is super energetic, has obscenely good animation, and explores its themes well. You don't lose anything in re-watching it because there's very little else like it. KLK wasn't even bad because it's samey, it's bad because it meandered worse than Tristram Shandy and tried too hard to be TTGL. Moreover, your whole argument relies on the fact that "I think the charm comes in the form of unexpected humor and plot twists, and if you already know all of them, it's just kind of bland." applies to literally every piece of media ever. Your post is so inarguably retarded I can not believe that you would post it in good faith.
>I have to heavily pre-review any anime that comes out, so that I can be confident I won't be bored and waste my time.
Or instead of listening to stupid people and their opinions, you could form your own.

>>13717048
He was an usurper and needed troops who wouldn't be disloyal. They are no more disposable than loyal soldiers would be in WWI or WWII for instance.

TTGL is /v/-tier normie trash. Always was.
>>
>>13717150
>No, plot twists like the leading personality not being the main character,
"TTGL was my first TV series ever, and I am incapable of recognizing the "mentor" archetype; as well as the explicitly defined main character
>especially since the episode previews lead you to believe he is,
There was never a single point where the next episode previews would have led you to believe this.
>Buta being the true hero,
He wasn't, also that scene marred a really good episode.
>Nina being the Antispiral antenna,
おめでとう! Your only valid argument for a plot twist.
>Viral not actually being a jackass,
"I equate character development with plot twists"
>>
>>13717063
> I think the charm comes in the form of unexpected humor and plot twists, and if you already know all of them, it's just kind of bland.
Might as well say that about every single anime after you've already seen it then.

>Same for Gayass(You were all thinking it),
You mean all 12 year olds were thinking it.

>KLK, Fooly Cooly, most of Gundam, Evangelion, etc.
See my first comment.
>>
>>13717153
Excuse me while I newfag. Anyway, FLCL has decent animation, but recycles frames a lot, I will give you that it explores themes. I do go back and rewatch occasionally, but even then only the first and the last 2 episodes. KLK was Sonic Adventure 2, with some fun character interaction, and what the fuck do you think samey is, don't say it's not and then counter yourself two commas later. Plot twists can be enjoyable later still, but not if that's the only driving force of the series, as it is with TTGL, Geass, etc. Good faith nothing, I post em likes I sees em. Cough.

He didn't have the right to throw them at the antimatter bombs like that. There was a point where he was just disposing of troops.

To a person with a functioning brain, this means "it failed." It wanted to be like TTGL, but it wasn't. Holy fuck I wish this board had mods because the underage shitposting is seriously getting out of hand.
>Plot twists can be enjoyable later still, but not if that's the only driving force of the series, as it is with TTGL, Geass, etc.
TTGL has one single plot twist, and it's just a way to transition the plot. It doesn't rely on plot twists if there is only one plot twist.
>>
>>13717176
Well duh, I'm on 4chan. Mainly because people are getting all hyped up about One Punch and other not as good as they think anime, and I'm killing the time until I have to get off my ass and go to work.

>>
>>13717174
>Not next episodes preview. Current episode preview. "This is the story of a man" etc.
That never implied that Kamina was the main character. How eould you even think that? Through the entire first episode, Kamina acts as Simon's self-appointed sidekick. The scene where he doesn't is when he's trying to break out of the village, and immediately afterwards he goes back to being the protective older brother. He's the one who tells Simon to get in the robot, and he's the one who tells Simon that he has to be the main character. Simon isn't just the first (and most important) mech's pilot, either. He's the first character we see and the series starts with his musings.
>And really, Viral never develops. He gets the shit kicked out of him and cowers like a dog. His only development comes in getting pissed off that the guy who beat him ends up pussing out.
I'm actually kind of impressed that something like TTGL was 2deep4u
>>
>>13717187
TTGL is, I think, more about nigh-endless ridiculous power escalation than twists, but the final effect is still a lot of emphasis on WTF is going to happen next. Once you've seen all the forms of the robots and all the galaxy throwing, it's boring.

Excitement is not an objective measure of anything. The most boring thing you've ever seen can and probably does excite someone else and vice versa.
>>
>>13717216
Except I don't like a lot of the Golden Age stuff either. I'm not an anime fan, I'm a fan of specific series. Same as I like certain video games, but I don't consider myself a gamer, since most of them just don't interest me.

It isn't a twist if the character's developing to that point over the entire series.

You're kind of missing the point of the character/scene.

Gai's death was pointless by design.
That's the joke/message. Not everyone gets the big, heroic sendoff. Not everyone gives their lives for the greater good. Sometimes, you're just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Christ, the show isn't even that subtle with the message. How is it so many people still miss it?
