Okay /m/ so I'm watching Dougram. I'm on the 12th episode, and I'm really enjoying it.
It's refreshing to see competent mecha fighting other competent mecha, that can still be taken down by mines, helicopters and tanks, and even rifles.
It's real robot to the extreme
What does /m/ think of dougram?
I really enjoyed it and think it's pretty great.
I'm watching it too, and I'm at ep. 12 too. And I think it's really awesome. The pacing is very slow but for this series it's really appropriated due to the complexity of the plot. The political conspiracies and the guerilla aspects are great, both sides are well fleshed-out even if the Garcia platoon is more caricatural, and the mech designs are simple but work really well. The fights are cool too. It's a solid 9/10 imho.
One problem I could point out is that the show has some big tendencies to overuse Dougram's plot armor. In most of the fights Crinn goes like
>One more hit and I'm dead!
And then he gets blasted 10 more times and there isn't even a scratch on his unit.
Also if you like the show you should really watch Battle of the Algiers. It's basically what influenced Takahashi to make Dougram.
Nah, none of those. Anon is referring to how the mecha aren't very grounded or well-thought out.
The world and its politics, however, are quite believable and realistic. Add to that the whole thing is well executed with no filler despite its 75-episode length, you can see why it's a /m/ favorite.
Choro Q Dougram is fun.
Also, there's modern Revol figures and Max Factory kits of several Combat Armors, so that's pretty cool.
Absolutely none of those.
Oh yeah, and I forgot
We never approve your independence from our federation
They have these on HLJ pretty cheap too
Later Combat Armors, namely the Blockhead T10C, Iron Foot, and likely the Bigfoot and Cabarov have zero problems with this. It also wouldn't be surprising if the Arctic Gunners didn't have it, since the T10Cs were improved developments of the Blockhead T10B.
I think those underwater based ones also had no problem with the X-Nebula? You know, the ones we got to see like twice.
There's no way a hang glider that size should be able to carry a robot through the air.
It's a minor thing, though, Dougram's usually ok at keeping the things you have to suspend disbelief on minor.
>remains grounded throughout
I sometimes wonder if Kanda had a part in this. The guy was arguably bigger on verisimilitude (at least when he was alive, not getting screwed by the execs and/or not doing Galatt) than Takahashi.
You know this is a setting with a space warp?
Soltic may look heroic, but the Crab Gunner is truly the Combat Armor of heroes.
Most combat armors had it pretty bad, but god damn Crab Gunners were really burtalized.
tfw Canary's brother tfw Garcia's hostage - okay that was a Desert Gunner but you get the point tfw radio outpost
The Ironfoot's usage in the series after its introduction bugs me. It's introduced as this rugged and resilient CA that simply refuses to break down, giving me some hope that it might finally be Dougram's match (and a good fit for a growing but still small rebel army). Then in subsequent appearances it just blows up like a bitch. It's a pity, because I really like its design.
Pic related is also another interesting design,
yet we see it only when the war is pretty much over.
I kinda felt like that too, but I still liked that the Ironfoot didn't always go out like a chump
I loved that little beach scene with the Soltics
It's like the GM of Dougram; it's the support weapon and even though it's technically tough it still has to be shown jobbing. Besides that, it also was shown to still be vulnerable, so we do know it could hold its own when it had to but it could still falter when the going got tough
Let me guess.
It is girls und panzer spliced up with dougram audio.
I may be wrong, I got it from here.
Two baller anime, one image.
I saw the series on tape, raw, shortly after it began airing...so many episodes. Even without the plot details each episode was a solid drama without any cute in it. Wish they would make some side-story OAV of it.
Would anyone mind uploading Dougram The Comprehensive to mediafire for me? I've checked on the Takahashi Image Folder torrents periodically for months and I don't think they're ever gonna get seeded and the Doguram art book is the main thing I want.
Would that be the torrent I started? Irregardless, I'll work on throwing Comprehensive the Dougram up on MEGA.
Thank you based anon
God damn that's a lot of forehead, even for Rocky.
The complete Dougram OST was posted in a past thread, I'll post it here sometime.
Those who're still watching, how're you finding it now?
RT, BT, they just make me unhappy whenever I see 'em. Watered down shit.
>fucking FLYING combat armors
>Combat Armors in space vs ayylmaos
I'm laughing but jesus h. christ what a mess. Fuck localizations.
It was more popular than anticipated, so it was given more screentime.
>no major spin off or sequel
True mysteries. We technically have VOTOMS but we all know how that is. It'd be great to see one, though.
As I've mentioned before, I hope the new Battletech game is good, it might be the closest thing we ever get to a Dougram SRPG if they have some of the Unseen mechs included (even if they have to change the design for obvious reasons, lol)
Never noticed the similarity before!
On an unrelated note, can I play Vixen 776 for Sega Genesis with your guide alone, Gunlord?
One of the mecha look like Ingram and the intro is kind of similar to 0083 opening 1's mecha launch sequence.
You should be able to. I'm not sure if the screenshots are still up since the site I hosted them on went down a long time ago, but the commands are simple enough if you've played any Japanese games before. Aside from that the guide should cover everything.
It ain't no Korchima special I've ever seen before, but there is is.
pic aside, I'm guessing it's because most of the guerrillas were former farmers, bluecollar workers, etc. and in addition were usually better off wearing clothing that'd hold up against prolonged exposure to the elements.
For common people on a developing planet, this would mostly mean farming clothes, so that's what the cast and many of the other guerrillas wore.
For guys like Heckle and Giorgio what they had already held up fine, I suppose.
