>Koutetsu Jeeg gets a live action adaptation by the dagos, with a twist.
"Gabriele Mainetti’s thoroughly enjoyable, surprisingly plangent and gritty “They Call Me Jeeg” features a two-bit criminal loser who stumbles upon his powers, Toxic Avenger-style (without the deformity), and learns to care about humanity thanks to a traumatized woman who’s convinced he’s the Japanese manga character Steel Jeeg."
Because /m/ don't care about Jeeg here the fact that he's one of the coolest giant robot out there.
Instead, they'd rather whine about how bad recent Gundam is.
Also, italy = dago. spain/mexico = spic.
Not the same thing.
Someone actually reviewed it. I still can't say if it's worth a watch or not. I don't even know if it will get subs.
They did. There was a thread several months back saying it if I recall. There was no trailer around then though.
He seems to just have rather generic strength powers or something in the trailer and I very much doubt he "stumbles" on to powers remotely similar to Jeeg, given that the poster suggests he's wearing a costume rather than being a cyborg or capable of transforming in to part of a giant robot. He might have electromagnet powers though I guess. Trailer doesn't seem to suggest so though. I think Jeeg is just being used in the film as a hero he can aspire to, rather than him being it.
>We had a ton of threads about this earlier
This is literally the only thread in the archives and it had less posts than this one
Sounds like the Jushin Liger movie deal (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jushin_Thunder_Liger:_Fist_of_Thunder), then. Might be cool.
That, and Nanto hasn't made any progress on the original show in ages.
I haven't seen the movie yet, but I don't think the guy has any kind of power related to Jeeg, they probably picked that name because Jeeg was a big image among Italians two generations ago.
I can see them playing it as a kind of icon if the girl is delusional and thinks the guy is a superhero.
Anyway the trailer is cool, at least it doesn't spoil the whole movie like many others.

>Remenber when trailers explained what the movies were about, instead of mysterious shots fading to black.
It kind of happens when your childhood was filled with Go Nagai bots (with the help of Daitarn III and Combattler/Voltes V), Fist of the North Star, and Saint Seya
I mean, did Sunrise lend them preview tapes of Gundam after Zambot and Daitarn were well received over there and when they asked for them back the Italian broadcasters told them they were lost in the mail and just dubbed it anyway? How exactly do you steal an entire show back in the pre-digital era? The fact that it was undiscovered for so long I have no problems believing, Go Nagai didn't find put how popular his robot shows were in Europe, Latin America and the Arab nations after decades of Toei cashing those fat checks.
Exactly. Apparently the network (called TMC) simply went ahead and dubbed leaked material with the intention of acquiring the rights later. Judging by the timing (they started the broadcast even before the original MSG run in Japan was over) they were expecting to pay a relatively cheap price. However after the success of the reruns the price of MSG skyrocketed and the plan failed. TMC stopped the broadcast but the dubbed version fell in the hands of smaller local networks. At this point Sunrise became aware of the situation and demanded the destruction of the dubbed version and all related materials.
>complains about shitposting
It's-a the spic-a!
It's not a shitpost and you should feel ashamed for what you're doing right now. Mussolini didn't team up with Hitler so fags like you can shitpost actual ontopic threads into oblivion.
Having some weird Zanardi vibes from the guy in the trailer
The Jeeg manga and 70s anime aren't subbed, are they? Kotetsushin Jeeg was great, and I'd like to see the older stuff
