ITT: Your favorite signature pose of any mobile suit in any gundam series
Devil's "looming over the enemy" pose. Bonus points for when it has the extra arms.
what is with Tomino and this pose. even king gainer doing it
Was a big fan of Sandrock's post-slashing pose.
Until the solid state blade trumping everything because plotkai thing settled in and ruined the image for me.
I always liked when the Ez 8 does the whole fire all the guns thing like in this video
that count as a pose?
Not really a signature pose, but it looked cool nonetheless.
Logic be damned, this is how you make an entrance.
>come back go thread after a while to see if there are any more posts
>someone replies to a response to my post trying to start shit
For what purpose?
shouldnt the blade end up curving the other way? the Shotell was designed to curve over enemy shields and hot the enemy behind with the tip.
Or did the Maganac train Quatre wrong on purpose, as a joke?
It's more a motion, than proper pose, but Iove it.
That pose IS pretty cool. But Freedom never actually does that anywhere in the show itself. Freedom's trademark pose in Seed itself is the angelic jesus Lacus Dust leaking from the vents pose.
the macross looming over anything is always such a badass pose
*muffled T.M. Revolution playing in distance*
Yea, that's what I was implying.
2hu will never die until ZUN says so. R-right?
Their recent cover of Necrofantasia was pretty good.
The real problem I find with Yuuhei Satellite is that Iceon is the only good arranger of the group and they only do like one song once in a blue moon. The recent stuff seems to all be only HiZumi and Autobahn.
They were pretty consistent about 4 years back, but I'd be lucky if I actually liked a single track from their new releases anymore.
Liz triangle, diao ye zong, alsteromeria and shibayan still doing good work though
I just love when they're holding their fucking huge cannons like this
There is quite a good choice for groups these days beyond the old big names enough that it doesn't matter. Most of them only even really made their name because they were first there.
If anything the Touhou scene has been healthier in the last year than it has been for years before that even during the SA heyday. There is practically a official Touhou related material coming out every month at the moment, we had two official games just last year.
Quality of the circles has really gone up with a bunch of older lesser known and newer doujin circles being able to shine now since most jumped ship for the boatslut wagon.
The real problem is that it's the Western fanbase that is dying and with that rotting away that means less exposure to the new stuff so it feels like it's dying when it's just what most perceive.
These two plus pic related are my favourite poses in mecha.
>undermines the point of having an MS pilot in the Gundam-verse.
No? The Gundam gets destroyed in the process so clearly it was not a wise strategy. Also, the only reason it sort of worked is because Amuro is a newtype who could predict where Char was going to be. Any normal type would just be throwing away a perfectly good mobile suit for nothing.
Who's to say it's not? A heavily damaged mobile suit was able move and shoot down its intended target without a pilot.
How much pilots actually do is not represented well in Gundam. Or any mecha franchise really. At most it's the pilots' role is point the MS in the right direction and the MS takes care of everything else.
I thought the gundam had some sort of programmable ai in it of sorts which allowed it to "remember fights" so I thought it was just amuro making a good guess and programming it to walk forward and shoot up
it's not like a true ai so pilots are still needed to make actual responses to the dynamic situations in a battle since remember when amuro tried to rely solely on data when fighting a Gouf? It didn't go well
>At most it's the pilots' role is point the MS in the right direction and the MS takes care of everything else.
It's interesting that most ballistic weapons don't actually have any sophisticated aiming and targeting mechanisms beyond just lining up the shot and eyeballing it, compared to weapons like beam rifles which were camera guided and had sensors.
Fuck knows how they use deadly melee weapons like beam sabres without pre-programmed attack patterns and slicing themselves to pieces.
Aiming weapons, from what I can gather, is rather tank-like. Robot arms themselves are easy to program, and if all you're doing is pointing with it (whether a finger or a beam rifle) is mathematically simple, only like four line segments to geometrically solve for. Melee is done much the same, but I would assume there's an extra keystroke required to give the direction of swing.
if you've got a little CS under your belt it's not really hard to figure out how mobile suits might be controlled and programmed. Inverse kinematics, inverse kinematics everywhere.
>it looked impressive
I see what you did there
Most ballistic weapons I know of in UC actually do have cameras. That bullpup is one of the few I can think of that don't and it was an early cheap thing they rushed out quick and was pretty quickly replaced.
