So was it a shit romance?
There seemed to be a lot of bitching but there were a couple of moments when Domon stuck his neck out for Rains sake
>not an overbearing tsundere-type
>actually matters to the plot
>not a manipulative cunt
>doesn't constantly remind people that she's a girl
And she's willing to throwdown for her (b)f despite no skill in fighting.
Devil Gundam made her silver because
god Gundam made him gold
Oh most definitely
He out right called her a traitor even though it was him who drove her away
At the end of the series though he admits he's a douche nozzle and is going to try to change
Chibodee had more chemistry with four girls at the same time than Domon had with Rain
The traitor card was at least understandable. Even if he drove her away, she didn't need to help his German cyborg ninja mentor who was ultimately just looking out for their relationship.
The scene that pops out to me is when Domon drove her away, yelling at Rain because she let Allenby get taken by the fucking paramedics.
I just assumed he meant Domon didn't know how to go through a cell phone.
Also, Domon is never once shown as "possessive." In the anime (don't know if that's from the manga or a doujin), Domon initially assumes that Rain and Turk are a thing and leaves them alone before accidentally discovering his DG Cells.
>I Rain deserved to have another guy interested in her.
She did, that's what the Ottoman was
>I mean, If Domon can have Allenby then Rain should have gotten someone too.
Last I checked, Domon didn't get the GOOD END.
I pretty much meant all this along with the fact that I would expect him to get angry or something rather than sitting on the floor swiping through a bunch of pictures going Ha?!
Rain should have left him and never looked back. I wanted to see Domon suffer more for being such a edgy faggot toward her.
To be fair, they were forced to work together after:
- Dad is branded a traitor and put into cryo sleep
- Brother steals "evil gundam" and is a traitor
- Mother is newly dead
- Forced into the Gundam fight to go after his brother to save his father from his own government
Dude had other shit on his mind.
They very slowly started to like each other more as the show went on and they got to interact with each other more... And yeah, sometimes Domon was way too thick headed, but kind of makes sense since he had very little dealings with Women. He was in training most of his later teenage years ( by a master who later betrays him as well).
There was always something else pulling Domon away from Rain. Machinations of Wong, Master Asia, Evil fighters, Friendly fighters, Allenby... He was getting stuff thrown at him left and right. He really didn't have much time for any kind of relationship.
Except for the fact Rain kept getting involved. First of course probably because it was a job and she may have felt sorry for his situation... But after many times of both of them doing things for each other, a lot of the time putting their lives at risk, that tends to make people bond.
Even thick head martial artists with a lot on his shoulders.
Not that guy but while Rain will at least act like a normal person Domon will literally cop a major fucking attitude with her for no reason like some edgy teenager who hates his parents or something. Having "other things on your mind" doesn't explain how he goes out of his way to be rude to her even when nothing bad going on. Not to mention he never shows an ounce of appreciation for her until after he runs her off like a huge faggot.
You mean the picture?
I kept it because I thought it was interestingly fitting. Since I saw Gundam Wing first, Garrod always reminded me of Duo and Tifa seemed closest to Relena which led me to find pic related interesting as well.
>So was it a shit romance?
They spent the whole show forcing it down the viewer's throat instead of making a single effort to convince anyone.
Yes, it's one of the most poorly told romances in animu.
Except he did cheat. He got a new suit and then apologised to his dead friends, saying that if he couldn't beat the Gundam with it, he could never face them after leaving the flag behind.
>forgetting about Nastasha
>even Sai Saici was ready to die to see some russian goodness
TTGL is a superior G Gundam. It did everything better, including romance.
It didn't start being a romance until like over halfway through.
What does explain it is that he simply didn't understand her because he still had the mindset of an edgy teenager, especially after his parents died. Domon was a monkey who didn't know how to do anything but punch things, and the show was about him becoming a capable, functioning adult that could actually relate with other people. This is why the show has him do things like befriend the Shuffle Alliance, kill Master Asia himself and then choose Rain over Allenby. It's all to service this theme. Until Domon sufficiently reaches enough character development, he's like /pol/ being forced to work with a black person by the Jews.
100% shit and lazy writing.
Tell that to the lazy fuck who wrote G.
Because you have no standard.
Rain is a shitty plot device.
Domon is an angry crybaby. I wish Chibodee was MC.
>show gets better everytime she appears
>show gest awful anytime it's about Domon/Rain/Devil Gundam macguffin
So much this. Chibodee wasn't MC because we can't have nice things. Seriously, Neo Murricah is tits.
G had terrible, terrible drama whenever it was about Domon.
Is Super Class EVER going to translated? Jesus fucking christ it's been 5 years since it started
You must be the life of all the parties that all your friends invite you to.
She actually knew some shit about modifying the Gundam. Rain actually notices this when the part Allenby messed with saved Domon in the FotW and knew since Domon wouldn't use her as a cock sleeve she was officially useless.
domon was master asia's cock fag anyway. a real man would'ved taken both Rain AND Allenby as his sex slave harem.
Then secretly cheated on them with all of the other girls in this picture: >>13759343
He didn't call her a traitor, he was angry that Allenby was kidnapped right under their noses, lashed out at everyone nearby, Rain included. Remember, he pushes Argo down for trying to talk to him.
What he did say to Rain is, GRR AREN'T YOU A DOCTOR YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO WATCH OVER THE PATIENT WAHHHHHHHH
We're not supposed to be taking Domon's side on this. This is Domon throwing another shitfit showing that he's still immature, even after his venture into the Guyana Highlands
The thing about Domon is that he's always wrapped up in his own problems and he doesn't lash out at just Rain, he'll lash out at EVERYONE around him. If you notice, he doesn't listen to anyone until they kick his ass, or he gets his ass kicked.
Why do you think Kyoji sent Schwarz Bruder to protect Domon? He knows he's a big dumb dumb.
The whole point of this series is that a lot of these characters wouldn't have gotten anywhere alone and need the help of others to grow further.
I mean, ask yourselves. How far would Domon have gotten in this series without Rain or Schwarz?
I don't know if this is something new to you sonny boy, but this is something we call CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
See, back in my day, when a character starts off as an asshole, delinquent, jackass, or an upstart, the series would make sure that this character ends up in a better place than they were before, and actually change as a character. It doesn't always work out that way, but usually that's the best way to do it.
Nowdays, thanks to people like you, if you don't like a character, they should just be abandoned on the spot! Fuck having to write! Let's just have perfect main characters with all of the powers and never having any trials at all!
Go watch kirito and write fanfiction, you scrub.
Going to dump a couple for you, if you tell me what you are using them for.
Then have a couple more.
There really isn't enough good porn of her
Does anyone else prefer Rain's normal clothes over the mobile trace suit? I just prefer the miniskirt and heels.
Most people keep going on about how her suit is the sexiest thing. Her getting her body into the suit is hotter than the actual suit. This may just be me being a leg man who likes short skirts.
I toy with the idea of buying a cosplay of her normal clothes
Some of us like women in skin-tight suits, but I can see your point of view. As a offering of good will, have some LEWD.
Bro, you gotta remember that childhood friend shit is a big factor towards romances in Japanese culture.
At the very least, it's a big bonus to a ship in media for kids. Like, finding a girl who shares your interests is a +2 towards the possibility of you ending in a romantic relationship with that girl, but childhood friendship can be as high as a +10.
>remember that childhood friend shit is a big factor towards romances in Japanese culture
If we're talking otaku fantasies maybe. That really doesn't explain why the whole Domon/Rain thing was so abysmally executed when every other pair had it much better.
Fuck, a lot of Gundam manga are left untranslated in general. Most of the time it's just UC or SEED spinoffs that get translated, and I'm pretty sure that if the latter didn't have official translations, not much people would go for it anyway
G has several manga. The ones that interests me the most is the one about the 7th Gundam fight starring a young Master Asia as the protagonist, and of course, the sequel manga written by Imagawa himself. Scanlation never
I actually love both. the normal clothes have a pretty cool look and really sell the sci-fi clothes vibe from that period. It complements her legs, and manages to show off her looks without presenting her in an unbelievably slutty manner. However, The trace suit is succesful, because it does just the opposite. It's design breaks her outfit in to lingerie-esque segments: long gloves, thigh high boots, the v-split across the chest, the back is even a thong. It's really great to look at. Both outfits definitely work for me, but I'm an Allenby man at the end of the day.
The real issue is that the show kept showing that Allenby and Domon had very strong, natural chemistry together and whenever it was about Domon and Rain it's like they had to take some therapy to communicate properly. I think creators all were a bit fucked up in their heads back then between this, 08th and 0083 relationships.
It started August 2010. The original director has writing it, and has some BIG changes starting around Shinjuku
It might be the new canon
Well that was the idea. Allenby was a martial artist just like him. Choosing her would have meant he had no character development. Choosing Rain shows that he was able to move beyond being a martial artist and actually relate to people that aren't just like him.
The execution, on the other hand, was a bit lacking. He really should have shown a bit more affection for her before the last four episodes.
People with so little ability to communicate properly don't even get to dating level, Domon and Rain could only happen because the plot dictated that it had to happen, the execution was abysmal.
I don't worry about these things in a show with a Tequila Gundam.
But yeah, they really were counting on
>they knew each other as kids!
to handwave away everything. Imagawa is great, but not at writing romance.
>they knew each other as kids!
More like Imagawa expected to get away with it because the show was aimed at kids, all the asspulls and constant lack of susbtance in the show likely come from that attitude.
>Imagawa is great, but not at writing romance
All the other pairs in the show ended up pretty alright, hell, remove Rain and pretend that Allenby is the love interest and you get something passable. The stupid romance thing is probably the result of trying too hard to have Domon go through retarded drama event after retarded drama event just to make his life suffering.
You aren't the walk me home gently guy from /a/, are you? They literally spend the last shots of the shuffle alliance showing all of them getting kissed, except sai whose kissing his photo of neo denmark's sister.
>Allenby ends up alone
Are you going to save her anon?
There used to be an old joke here, that Domon chose rain so /m/ could have Allenby.
I did. What the fuck?
Either way, still want that jacket
>Allenby shoehorned into a love triangle in the most retarded manner
She deserved better.
Yeah it is pretty bad ass. G Gundam had some fucking sick Jackets now that I think about it. Domon's, Kyoji's, Schwartz's, and I also think Gentle Chapman had a pretty bad ass long coat as well.
At any rate, all of these are kinda creepy if you think about them that way, so I prefer not to. Except maybe with Argo and Nastasha, that is, and even then it's hard for me to tell if Nastasha was playing prison warden for more than just a paycheck.
>I still don't even know what purpose Allenby serves in the plot
Considering the main plot is a mess of cheap asspulls and twists all revolving around shallow villains trying to get the macguffin Gundam and that the only thing carrying the show is style, you really shouldn't question how nonsensical the writing of this show is.
They are giving him kisses. Four at once.
Blushing so hard even a blind man could see.
Because it already happened you blind fuck.
>all of these are kinda creepy
Said no sane person ever.
The only thing that didn't make any sense in the overall plot was the presence of the original Shuffle Alliance. Nothing else was an asspull in the slightest unless you want to talk about some of the episodic plots.
>Nothing else was an asspull in the slightest
G is leaking asspulls at every turn, in particular every time the Devil Gundam was involved, this thing was shitting up new convenient plot devices every time the writers needed the plot to go in a specific direction. The show pretty much never gave hints whenever a new twist was happening, they just threw it at the audience then tried to came up with some half assed excuse to justisfy it.
Cheapest and most pointless Gundam characters ever.
They should have had upgrades in the show. Maybe that could have saved the MSIA line up and maybe G would have had more popularity. It was fucking retarded that only Japan thought of having a new Gundam for the finals.
>It was fucking retarded that only Japan thought of having a new Gundam for the finals.
Maybe they were they only ones who could afford it. Neo America already spent all their tax money on a space statue of liberty that shoots lasers.
>the sequel manga written by Imagawa himself
Welp, I guess I'll be searching for these now.
Rain was always trying to support Domon, and it was very clear she had feelings for him. Domon was actually autistic, and it took all of his friends tell him "Pull your head out of your ass" for him to stop being that way. It wasn't the most graceful thing ever, but it made sense given the characters.
You can at least hand wave that with Master/Domon are just so strong that they could cut it with their indestructible legs.
You mean when a woman becomes strong enough she can just manifest high heels onto her feet.
You know with all the stuff in G Gundam that actually kind of fits.
Gundam Designers in G Gundam knew that legs and butts were the most important things in life. Its why they made the mobile trace system able to bend physics just so it could slide up Rain's butt.
