>>13859832 >Nitpick, but "repetitive dialogue and excessive exposition" sounds better to me. Yeah, I agree with that. Pretty much every Gundam has forced exposition, but IBO just keeps going over the same shit again and again. I don't mind having less battles in this series, but when they keep telling me things I already know it drags the whole show down. It has 25 episodes, so it shouldn't waste time like IBO does.
>>13859807 >Okada's spending more time on the characters than on the MS battles,
Which people would be alright with if the character development was actually interesting. It has nothing to do with just wanting mobile suit fights people are upset with so much time being spent on the characters yet hardly anything new developing from them.
>>13854289 >TRY >carries over much of the atmosphere from the first season That's a lie.
>Combination gimmicks and creative new designs That was one of the worst things aobut it, gimmicks were shit and there were too many original suits
>returning characters are generally handled well BULLSHIT Ral was useless through the entire series, they turned Meijin into a joke, Alan became a fag, Crossbone guy jobbed for no reason and China might as well not be there at all.
I get you HAVE to put some pros there but come one.
>>13860393 People have had more than enough time to watch it since then. There is no way of telling who has or hasn't watched X. The opinions of it on /m/ vary from it's great to its bad. Hell, the X thread we have up right now has people agreeing X has bad action sequences yet this chart says otherwise. The chart says the series ends well when it doesn't. It's rushed as hell with no real final battle. The chart doesn't even mention how horrible the villains are or how the series goes through a boring monster of the day phase.
>>13860393 That's not really a fair comparison because westerners as of now have two different sites they can legally watch IBO with subs and a bunch of sites to torrent it. X on the other hand was pretty much nonexistent.
>>13860404 That has nothing to do with >They just didn't like it and it didn't sell merchandise so views dropped and it got a new timeslot. Which suggests the people here on /m/ and people in the west had any influence on how X performed in Japan. That's not the case.
I didn't give an opinion on the show either, so I don't really care about your tl;dr.
>>13860442 Okada didn't kill hype. People were praising her if only for trainwreck potential. Barbatos and the Graze had a lot of people loving them when they were revealed. The show itself was heavily liked until about episode 4 or 5 when people started poking holes in it.
>>13854289 I don't like that chart at all. Many of the pros and cons are ether super vague or really insignificant to a point where it's basically useless as any kind of "should I watch this" guide.
I'd rather have a paragraph of actual writing, little synopsis or plot or premise and some thoughts about the show. Even if it was super full of personal bias and opinions, it would be more useful that that thing.
>>13864886 Not that anon, but I'd say that keeping track of all the different factions, what old man is part of what faction and what faction is group in what bigger faction and what their relations are can be hard.
I'm generally just terrible at remembering names and faces, be it characters or factions, so if I don't remember who or what something is, I don't care and just see what happens, usually the story comes through even if I skip the details.
Although, one could say that the web of factions is not the story per say, but more of a setting detail.
