Why was Riddhe allowed to go from based to not based so unceremoniously?
Saucefags, at least check the filename.
This webm is from Gundam Unicorn No. 4
I was going to greentext it with my original post but I forgot, thanks
Either contribute to the thread of STFU.
I understand if you hate CGI because it's too jarring or doesn't mesh well with the 2D characters, but saying Macross has no good action scenes anymore is kind of silly. The fight choreography is still pretty good. If anything I'd argue it's better since they can change forms more frequently compared to previous 2D Macross shows and that really shows off what a variable fighter can do.
That's Macross Frontier, not Rinne no Lagrange. I dunno how you mistook the two.
Curb your autism. Take a deep breath and watch this 80s webm with EXTRA shading. It should help calm you down.
THIS is what a mecha fight should look like
There was a trio in Frontier like Stark Jegan pilot. They didn't die though...probably.
OP here, Unicorn is pretty inconsistent really. That webm is compressed about 12x over though and it's got a lot of bit starvation--the part with Loni in particular. The edges on the Unicorn look pretty bad too.
I can try and find some crappier examples if you want some shitposting material though.
You should contribute instead of whining like a bitch.
All of Unicorn is a bit Zeonwank, but most of the time it's not too strongly so. The whole thing with Loni goes full Zeonwank, though. She's presented as "oh, isn't it sad" while glossing over how she's vaporizing babies.
Unicorn firmly believes in equal opportunity wanking and shaming of all sides.
Except for Banana, but that's only because he's supposed to be the neutral third party calling everyone out on their bullshit.
But Unicorn spends most of its time saying how fucking retarded FF and his butt buddies are for trying to revive Zeon yet again and ultimately ends with the very last remnants of teh Zeon Remnants being blasted into oblivion and FF himself admiting that maybe he was wrong
It looks like the Jesta Cannon only stepped on the shield/nosecone and not the cockpit hatch, so probably not. But if it did then that's a huge fuck up since they were actively trying to not kill anyone.
Just started watching this. I'm surprised at how annoyed I am by the aspect ratio, it's one of those shows that looks HD and has detailed animation but isn't in 16:9. I've watched so much anime but only now is this shit bothering me, it's like my tolerance has degraded or something.
Just wanted to rant.
That's the thing, though. E7 doesn't look "old". It looks like a new anime that's been cropped. If it was a 90s anime, I wouldn't even notice, but as it is, it's totally jarring to me.
How about underwater battles?
I wish this show had more material for good webms. It doesn't have that many good action scenes and the amount of stock footage they use is ridiculous. I still enjoyed it a lot though.
00 really indulged in some of the most gratuitous laserbeam spam, but fuck me if the Sol Braves weren't 10/10 mechs in both aesthetic and performance.
It's alright. Final episode comes out in a few weeks.
The Unicorn riding the Delta Plus looks so sweet.
God why did Banana have to be such a fucking loser, we could have had essentially an entire show of them doing sweet tag team loves like that.
Same reason why G-Forces are variable in Wing. It's really only there as a metric to make certain pilots look cooler because they can overcome something that would destroy a lesser man (actively shown to do so in Wing's case).
It's a way to show how the ace in question differs from the rank and file pilots through strength and determination.
I always assumed it was some GN particle magic that prevented anyone with a GN drive from experiencing g-forces, and that Graham was the only one ballsy enough to fight at their level with an inferior MS.
I think the worst thing a CGI mecha can do is be stiff and slow. Aldnoah.zero is one of the worst offenders in that regard IMO. Akito's CGI at least has that sense of momentum and weight, like you said, and it even gives you a better sense of how the mechs functioned and moved than the old non-CGI did.
Someone call Sunrise and tell them to work with Tomino to make sure all the idols will have lickable pussies because every anime he has made since at least Turn A had a 10/10 cast of girls
The problem is that, as with a lot of Orange's works, there's a really jarring sense of visual spectacle that undermines the flash of it all.
If I had to describe it, it's as if the camera were coupled to the cgi models by an invisible arm, creating this artificial feeling center of motion located at the lead mech of a given setpiece. In my opinion they should aim to have the camera feel as untracked from the cgi assets in motion, that the viewpoint should have its own sense of weight and physical presence rather than being glued to an actor-entity.
To phrase my gripe another way regarding that webm: Lancelot doesn't move, it makes the world and all other KMFs move around it while it strikes random poses to feign the illusion of movement. Planet Express Ship motion.
Personally, I always just assumed it just auto-healed he wounds it received as soon as the blades were withdrawn. It IS a Bio-mech. It makes sense it'd be able to self regen. I'm not so autistic as to NEED everything spelled out on a platter for me to understand.
I would think visual spectacle and flash go hand in hand, though. I get what you're saying about the camera being focused on a singular point, but I just don't think of it as an issue. That particular fight scene was basically "Lancelot duels a bunch of faceless mooks" so I think it makes sense that the action is focused on one mech. If there were other major characters all participating in some frenzied brawl, then a focused camera wouldn't work as effectively, though.
You might want to try looking at the title.
It's just rendered amateurish when you have camera lock.
And it wouldn't be so bad if it didn't feel like nearly every project Orange is signed onto commits the same mistake. Remains to be seen if Active Raid will have an Orange Cyclone, and yet people here are quick to go on about how it's not their best AS IF THE SPINNING IS ACTUALLY A GOOD THING OR SOMETHING.
>tfw I always make new webms for every thread and faggots complain without posting their own new content.
That said, it does get annoying seeing stuff reposted, especially stuff I made.
Yes, it's pretty great. Imagine Gundam updated for the 21st century(not like SEED's shitty attempt though), if you like electronic music, surfing/long boarding, you will enjoy it even more, they through in allot of references. Renton is arguably the only weak character which makes sense (because it is a coming of age story so whiny pilot is kindah needed) but he makes an excellent arc and you really feel his growth after 50 episodes(similar to amuro or Daisaku and NOT like Kira/Eggs kun etc). On top of all that you get a great world and BONES animating at their best. 1 skippable episode with the other 49 providing good character development and world building.
Yeah, most people are easier lazy or just don't care.
I remeber this webm about some dudes in a destroyed town in some Yellow / Desert Cammo powered armors, supposedly it was a CGI film rather than a series.
Anyone got these, plus the name of that movie?
That was a test to see if /m/ had become a fag enabler board yet, the answer is yes.
In the last webm thread, there was an anon who requested source for like 10 different webms.
This isn't a request thread. Why don't you make the webms yourself and contribute to the thread?
That scene still bugs me because
>Delta Plus's arm gets damaged firing the beam magnum
>has no problem catching the Unicorn, a much bulkier and tanked out suit than the featherweight glass cannon Delta Plus, from a free fall with one arm
Seriously, if it gets damaged firing a big energy weapon, then catching the Unicorn should have torn off its damn arm.
Minovsky particles ;^)
I think it wasn't the recoil, but more of an "electrical" reaction to it being rated for NT-D mode.
Even if I'm just misreading that, I'm pretty sure there's more kick from a laser that was able to punch through a Mobile Armor than there is pull from a Gundam that still has dampeners and other bullshit. It also wasn't falling for very long and it isn't shown whether Delta Plus reflex grabbed, or if Riddhe chased after it for a moment. If he did chase it, their inertia would've been comparable and the force required to grab and decelerate (not stop immediately).
I.G. has owned Xebec for a good number of years, and they use each other for a ton of stuff already actually.
Either contribute to the thread or STFU.
>Forgetting to call him out on his ESL.
Also, your little reaction gif ate up an image slot.
baka desu senpai
>asking for advice
That's not what you did, you stupid fuck. Asking for advice would be something like "Newfag here, how do I make my webms not look like shit? I tried google, but the jargon is a bit too confusing."
You know, sometimes I wonder what made some Anons become retarded. Were they dropped on the head or were they just born that way.
I can't tell which is worse. The ESL or the bitching. I really hope it's not only a single Anon making these posts.
Anyways, fresh off the press. Rewatching this soon, so drop /r/s and I'll try and get to it sometime this week. Will post if thread is still up, or will save for future breads.
Makes you wonder how fucking strong that pipe is. Zentradi strong.
No. They just had minimal CG effects for lighting and other such minor things.
Mechs are all hand-drawn, excluding those things.
I think it's hilarious how much of /m/ shits on CG when so few people can actually differentiate. Like the people who were stroking off Thunderbolt because it was gonna br hand drawn when there was CG in the trailer.
I've lost track of how many people have dismissed Break Blade as "CGI SHIT"
It's like CGI is /m/s version of
>This looks shopped. I can tell from some of the pixels and from seeing quite a few shops in my time
Is it too fluid? CGI.
Is the art style extremely stylized? CGI.
Is it Gonzo? CGI.
Nobody cares about your shitty opinions. This is a webm thread so either post them or GTFO you leeches.
>Why was Riddhe allowed to go from based to not based so unceremoniously?
Riddhe was never really based. He was always a somewhat mildly selfish, but well-meaning hero wannabe that went through Unicorn's events treating it like it was basically *his* story; the politician's son that left the family tradition to become something more akin to what he viewed as "heroic".
When he finds out his ancestors are somewhat half-responsible for some of the worst events in UC history, he becomes a lot more jaded and adopts a more determinist view on things. Banagher, in contrast, doesn't treat things like some kind of personal quest, and instead does what he can to protect the people he cares about in spite of things like sides or politics, and respects the wishes of others. When Mineva says she's going with Riddhe to stop the conflict on Earth, notice he shows no hints of jealousy or hesitation, but instead makes sure it's what she wants and thinks is right.
Fast forward to Loni, he refuses to fight in the middle of the populated city because A. A battle between them would do a far more damage to the city, especially if he hits the reactor by mistake, B. The Beam Magnum might not be enough with those beam reflectors active anyway, as only a direct hit is enough to stop the Shamblo, and C. He believes he can calm her down, because he can tell her hatred is something someone else burdened her with (to his credit, it mostly works until Kirks dies.) Riddhe, who is simiarly burdened with someone else's baggage, is less enthusiastic about the idea due to his newfound view on the matter and pulls the trigger the second he notices an opening (to *his* credit, Loni didn't want to live anymore, anyway.)
Fast forward to episode 5, Mineva rejects him in favor of Banagher's determination and faith in humankind, which aligns him against her due to his knowledge of the box and the dangers it presents to the Earth Sphere, which is the exact opposite of what he wanted for both of them. Then and he gets the absolute piss beat out of him, adding salt to the already sizeable wound in his personal pride.
Any sense of honor and duty he had has been replaced with shame, self-loathing, and anger at Banagher and Mineva's naivete. Any sort of starry-eyed goals he had in his military career has been replaced with this revolting responsibility to protect a dirty secret and the collection of politicians that fear it's power, both of which he finds sickening. His newfound hatred for Newtypes isn't necessarily born of elitism, but of the fact that if it weren't for them and Deikun's retarded idolization of them and the enemy's retarded idolization of his teachings, he wouldn't be in this shameful position to protect the secret of Laplace's box.
I actually find Riddhe to be one of one of the most fascinating characters in the Universal Century lore, but I'd hardly call him based. His role in the novel is even better, especially since Loni's a lot less of a rushed, retarded character. I'm definitely interested in the role he'll play in this Unicorn sequel/epilogue.
Big O was the first mecha that ever made me think about how the cockpit functioned. Never payed attention to the show when it first aired on Adult Swim, but I always remembered that thrusting lever he used to throw a right hook.
