Diebuster is a phenomenal sequel, i love it. It takes all the elements and methods that gunbuster utilised strait face-edly and plays with them. It asks questions about youth and responsibility, happiness and what it means to have power in your life. Diebuster is the difficulties of maturity and and ideals faced with a more complicated world.

The whole crashing into the badguy thing in the end bit still remains my favorite ending to a mecha show ever.

I think too many people are negative about mecha because nerds just get too involved with shit. Like it's cool to have as a hobby or a passion, but some people treat mecha like a religion. They get vehement and negative about mistakes and errors in an industry which is by no means cheap or easy. That is not to say that there are no shit shows, there are some horribly commercial and mediocre shows which clearly exist to make cash. Just that when something new comes along people people generally fall into three categories.

>People who just want something to obsess over (perhaps to replace something else in their lives) These go both ways with people who stick to particular shows to the point of insanity. They wont accept criticism or if there are issues they will not care and watch it anyway. These are really vehement and obnoxious shit-posters.

>People who just casually watch anime, and, well that's it. They watch shows they like, they don't watch shows they do not like. They are quiet and lead perhaps the most normal lives(maybe?). You never notice them because they have better things to do than argue and shitpost on meso-american stone carving gathering places like 4 chan.

>People who look to mecha with challenge in their heart. You know that one guy who actually learned something from Evangelion, but did not become an obsessive waifu-fag. Will accept arguments against their favourite's but will argue with a brain. Still nerdy but open minded to a degree.
>>
>>13846648

>>
>>13846708
OP here, I think I fall into category 2 (I used to be category 1). I recently moved away from my fiance so I'm trying to reconnect to the fandom I used to be heavily into (/m/). Its just upon coming back none of the old spark is there and everyone seems to hate each other.
>>
>>13846717
The spark is still there. For Gundam, it is drowned out by having too many successive series. For a few others, there is one or two people who damage threads. The spark can be hard to find. But it is there, and I know it because it is still alive in me. As long as it is alive in me, I know there are others who feel the same. It is just a matter of finding the right time.

I wish I could meet with everyone on /m/ in real life, where nobody has the guts to act autistic.

I don't even know where to start with Godannar. It's awesome. it's got awesome robots doing awesome shit to awesome music while their awesome pilots make awesome jokes. Also boobs. I like boobs, man. I don't care if you judge me.

And that's the other thing about Godannar, it doesn't give a fuck. It's a show that doesn't care about broad appeal or popularity, it's a pure, 100% distilled super robot that will sicken anybody but the most die-hard fan of the genre, but for the fans its a high like no fucking other. You can't even compete with Godannar.

>>13846364
James Links was a very refreshing protagonist. Anime needs more legit adults. Not young adults, not teens, legit 30+ adults.

Seeing an older character (almost) treated without all the generic "you are an old man (read: older than high school age) with no life left enjoy being a wage slave and entrusting the future to the next generation" was nice.

Seeing a main character with two kids who are also adults with careers was a new experience.
>>
I really love GitS Arise.

Outside of Motoko's design (which really isn't to my taste), I found it to be a pretty smart story with a great amount of pithy and subtle commentary on the role of technology and the mind, and it had several interesting things to say about what role the state has in all of that.

It had some excellent animation to boot.

Dolores and idolo are legit great and more people should see them. I swear not even a quarter of the fans of the games have ever even heard of the anime. But I only ever played the first game and 40 minutes of The Second Runner, so who am I to talk.

What's better? The movies or the TV version?
>>
>>13848272
OAVs, but in TV airing order with the last "story" from the AAA version tacked on.

So
04-Ghost Stands Alone
01-Ghost Pain
02-Ghost Whispers
03-Ghost Whispers
Then the two TV episodes
TV Ep. 09-Pyrophoric Cult, Pt. I
TV Ep. 10-Pyrophoric Cult, Pt. II
Then GitS: The New Movie

I really like this order cause there's some fun things about whether or not what the Major is actually "remembering" in the flashback episodes (as stories 1-3 are presented in the AAA airing). Basically, it's framed with Pyrophoric Cult happening immediately after Ghost Stands Alone, but they inserted the first three "stories" in between.

I think it makes for a better viewing experience.

I watched Zeta for the first time last summer, downloaded all the eps on my phone and would play an episode every day in my lunch break at work. Man what a depressing yet comfy show, I sort of skimmed the last couple of episodes because I was just done with it. I loved the return of Amuro and Char, Hyaku Shiki is on my top 3 fav suits, I loved the general 80's vibe of the show from editing to bgm.

Overall I'm definitely glad I watched it tho, its was a good experience and certainly had its moments. Every once in a while I start humming the opening and I'm reminded by that summer. Just me sitting in dark corner at work eating a dry chicken breast and brown rice, headphones on and fixated on my phone's screen watching Zeta. I'll always have that.

This was the show that finally pulled me out of my hatred for 2D Vietnamese cave paintings. Up until 2012, I had always looked at anime with scorn and disdain- nothing I saw appealed to me. Naruto, Bleach, and any other of the giants of the time grabbed my attention because they either had an abrasive fanbase or were just too shonen.

Come Thanksgiving of 2012, I decide that I should finally get back into watching anime, and after giving it thought, I realize that mecha was what I was searching for all along. I marathon the original MSG over the course of 3 days and I absolutely fell in love.

It's a damn shame I can't marry it.
