>tfw Platinum will never make a TTGL game
>He doesn't like love letters to the mecha genre as a whole
there is a line between homages and plagiarism and ttgl crossed it.
>he likes pleb shit that's an insult to the mecha genre as a whole
In spirit, Wonderful 101 captured the essence of Gurren Lagann the best, though Asura's Wrath is much more Gurren Lagann in it's plot arcs, as well as the DLC ending pretty much being the same as the OVA ending
>yfw the ending for me3 is the same ending for deus ex hr

>Seen about 60 anime series beginning to end, in my lifetime.
>Watched all of Votoms, Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Patlabor, most of Macross, NGE, Dai-Guard, Gaiking, about 70% of the Gundam Library, and a few other scattered 70's Mecha Anime like Mazinger.
>Love all of them.
>Love TTGL the most for feeling like a return to the days of goofy, "Lets not take ourselves too seriously" anime.
Maybe it's overrated shit to you, but it's a classic to me, in these days of "OMG SO SERIOUS DARK AND EDGY" anime, or "OMG SO FUCKIN' CUTE SLICE OF LIFE! ^_^;" anime.
Just ignore him probably just another arse from /a/ who thinks that all anime should be edgy try hard garbage or shit about little school girls instead of something that's just fun to watch
>Calling someone a beta.
>While arguing about anime.
What meme? You're literally arguing about anime and calling someone a beta. You're both betas. You watch jap cartoons and obviously like video games, if you're on /v/. What part of that is a meme?
Shit, I only like Vidya. That at least makes me a LITTLE bit less of a loser than you.
So something that starts fun but after a few episodes turns into repetitive predictable shounen shouting shit and halfway through abandons all the fun and goes for dull bleakness? Dunno, OP.
Regardless TTGL panders to 16 year olds and you should feel bad if you still consider it "epic" at 18+
Absolutely not, Asura isn't about human spirit triumphing over an outside force despite the odds thanks to sheer power of will and perseverance. While >>275640405 is.
>Using ebin may mays
>Complain because other people uses them against you.
the most retarded person of the day award goes to you!
uh wait no actually, because that would be insulting the people with actual mental sickness and not some 12 years old trying to fit in.
>waa people don't like my all style and no substance animu :^(
Come on, guys. I know it looks alright and is really epic and large scale but liking it because of that is like liking Call of Duty or stuff like that because it has epic scenes and stuff.
Come ooooooooon, guys.
A game that's amazing but goes to shit a third of the way in?
My favorites are MSG,the Getter series, the Mazinger Series Zeta Gundam, G Gundam, Eva, GGG, Gunbuster, Big O and FMP.
Special mention to Zambot 3 and Victory Gundam because huge unnecessary character deaths make me kinda happy.
Yet, I don't claim any of these are 10/10 fukken masterpieces, I just like them a lot.
Jesus christ I asked a question because I wanted to play games that are insane over the top fun, and now you retards are arguing about who's a bigger manchild. Faggots the lot of you
except for the people who actually talked about games
The only thing you could say TTGL "Plagiarized" was Spiral Energy (Getter Rays) and Mecha requiring multiple pilots (Which was also being done in Super Sentai)
Everything else was pretty much obvious homages.
I will fight you
>Platinum shows up

So /v/ is officially not about videogames any more. Guess it's time to kill myself.
So we all agree that Deus Ex is the Ghost in the Shell of video games, and that Metal Gear Solid is the Neon Genesis Evangelion, and that Wonderful 101 is the Gurren Lagann, but more important than any of them, what is the
Revolutionary Girl Utenaof video games?
>citizen kane of gaming
I swear to god everyone who throws that around either never saw CK or doesn't understand what it actually did for cinema
the story is good but not great, and isn't what it should be remembered for (though modern critics will felate it endlessly for rosebud). Its remarkably ambitious cinematography is why it became so famous: shots such as a focus on two characters talking while two more are reflected in the window so they could have all 4 in the frame.
This creative camerawork had a huge impact on how movies are made that still influences cinema to this day
a CKoG should be a game that is innovative and ambitious in terms of gameplay and influences future games for years to come
and sadly I would have to apply the term to Halo for popularizing health regen
An above average but massively overrated that has more success in modern ages than the media it takes from?
Also has a shitty cute morality pet that could have been completely removed?
First seven or so episodes are great, but there's a large gap of shit in between the eighth or so and around the fourteenth, but it slowly gets better. There's a lot of QUALITY moments, but also scenes like the gif that was just posted.
>60 Japanese series
That's massively low. Any Toonami casual can have that much just watching flavor of the month.
I've completed about 20 this month and the last just by having instasynch on while I draw.
This is the easiest question ever, because the BEST character with the BEST mech is in the game.
>not playing any super fanservice wars
What is the Legend of the Galactic Heroes of video games?
>tfw the magician didn't return
It's my one of my top 10 personally. It goes over the top really fucking fast. If I could rewatch it without knowing what crazy shit happens, I would.
Shenmue if this ending were real:
make yourself watch it all the way through episode 7 at the very least and decide if you want to continue. For some people (/a/) that's when it goes to shit, for others (/v/) that's when shit gets real
Legend of the Galactic Heroes the game obviously
>Deus Ex Machina: The Anime
Weebs have the worst taste and will defend anything that comes from japland.
/v/ is such a childish board
Worst taste in games, worst taste in music, worst taste in movies, worst taste in anime
It's so obvious you people have little life experience by what you post. Every other board is so obviously older than you faggots
You already got yourself spoiled about it so I don't know. I really enjoyed the ride from episode 7 onwards, but many would have preferred the show went nowhere with the narrative it started with.
I'm way more /v/ than /a/ and episode 7 completely jumps the shark. I just wanted Kickass: the anime. Instead I got "we don't have a clue what we are trying to be": the anime.
What's your thoughts on the second season of GITS:SaC? Honestly, I thought it was probably one of the best examples if you want to show the absolute best the entire medium can be. Amazing animation, excellent music, a compelling plot, and decent pacing. Episode 18 was my favorite.
Also, this scene alone is probably the best in the series.
>Deus Ex - HR release; review time

>kamina dies by like ep 10
It's ep 14 now and it's a chore trudging through the eps. He was the only entertaining thing. Does this show pick up again?
Evangelion was fucking shit. Insufferable characters, stupid pretentious plot and names for the monsters, cliche soundtrack, and a rabid fanbase, and the biggest pussy MC to ever fucking exist, god damn even I could do fucking better.
How the fuck is this regarded as a masterpiece?
And now that I think about it episode 14 must be post-time skip so yeah just ignore me
Oh I guess SM too. Sorry, forgot that one!
I recommend playing the rest of SHills without the 'character analysis' angle in mind.
It was about many things, but first and foremost about Angels vs Humans war.
Agendas of various persons and corporations, character development and interaction, weird 'unexplainable' events, finally the psychoanalysis angle and everything else are just parts of a very simple premise.
The way the plot is made if presented is what makes Eva what it is, but on the basic level it's just a mecha anime with a deconstruction twist. It's up to viewer to choose which part to focus on the most, but yeah. It's not any more of a focus than any of the other things
I remember the sheer amount of asspain it caused when he died. It was near narusaku level
Gurren Lagann is perfection
besides episode 4
Hmm, idk. Does ZoE's protagonist masturbate to a comatose girl in a hospital, leading up to an apocalypse where all of mankind goes extinct while a remix of Hey Jude plays in the background?
>that's after Simon turns into a super badass and becomes a GOAT tier pilot
>not getting hyped when Simon GIGA DRILLU BREEAKUU
>one episode before the final boss of season one
Shit nigger, what's wrong with you?
I don't see how anyone can dislike Evangelion. If you're into baby shit like Fairy Tail and Sword Art Online then I can understand Evangelion not being for you. Evangelion is fucking based, especially it's ending movie.
I AM TRIGGERED
PLEASE STOP TRIGGERING ME
That was distressing in a more meta kind of way
Even after that, I still think it really doesn't compare to when Kamina faced down the gunmen with a katana, took control of the gunmen through force of will, and fused with simon even though it made no sense.
What is the
Samurai Flamencoof video games?
I still can't believe there are people defending this garbage as some avant garde piece.
Something about Anime makes most people unable to look at it critically.
It works with many things actually. Culture, food, fucking swords - it's so romanticized because it's glorious nippon.
On the surface. In reality the whole show is about the creator Hideaki Anno. Every character is based on different sides of himself, the robots are from his obsession with mecha, the fan service is his love for, well, fan service.
>In reality the whole show is about the creator Hideaki Anno.
Dude. You can come up with a million different explanations for the "reality" of the show with as much proof backing it as your explanation.
>skipping on one of the best mecha anime because the MC is a girl
Yeah no get fucked
>Sometimes you just want something lighthearted and simple
Why is 99% of anime flooded with lighthearted and simple stories then? It's not as if there's a 50/50 divide between serious and nonserious. It's all fluff. Where is anime like the The Wire? The Sopranos? Rome? Where is, you know, some show that will stimulate the parts of my brain that grew after I turned 16? I'm not opposed to shounen or harem or moe or slice of life, I just don't get why that's all anime ever has to be.
What is the shitty taste of imageboards?
Don't answer, we already know its this thread.
Same reason adults go watch something like Guardians of the Galaxy, or watch some slice of life anime, it's just good fun. Life can be so draining sometimes, and a nice break from that is always good for me.
But the progressive knife, pulse rifle, etc.are all basically giant sized weapons and fit fine. Why is this one so unwieldy?
True, but why exactly are they in disguise at all?
>True, but why exactly are they in disguise at all?
The 'disguise' it probably the wrong word I used.
Seeing how Spears move and act on their own, I'm GUESSING this is some kind of a harness. To bring them in, but keep them in check.
This is never explicitly said, but makes sense, and the unweildly shape would be explained - it's basically a big sharp 'suitcase' with two handles.
He's right though, vast majority of it is cutesy, no-substance products for tittilation/feel good white noise. If there's one good anime a season - it's a good result nowadays.
Last time something good appeared, it was Mushishi s2. What came out this year that could be classified as not-lighthearted-fun?
Yes and no. See what happened to comic books? They evolved into more "mature" and complex stories, involving realistic scenarios and serious drama, like politics, social problems, different cultures; with superhero stuff in them.
Vidya is suffering the same transformation, complex scenarios, stories involving feelings, social issues and stuff mentioned above.
SO what about anime:
>Cringeworthy characters who can't speak without s-s-s-tuttering or BEIGN EXTREMELY LOUD to the girl they like
>Villains edgy as fuck always looking for powahh
>At least there is one character that acts extremely stupid for the sake of humour (which in most cases is a grown up adult)
>Not to mention jap humor is cheap, not funny and cringeworthy
>EVERYTHING IS DEMONS
>What came out this year that could be classified as not-lighthearted-fun?
Parasyte is based on a 1990s horror manga and does a fairly faithful job adapting it. Maximum body horror
Anon, what the fuck are you doing. Next time you will recommend him Shingeki becausle flawless characters.
Adults watch it the same way adults do everything else. They do what they like, without worrying about what someone online thinks about them, or looking down on others to feed their sense of superiority.
Sorry, I should have recommended Oreimo instead.
Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai is about some pedo that wants to fuck his little sister. It's got plenty of deep and meaningful themes in it, and gets pretty serious.
The only one I liked was Eureka Seven
>Evangelion is the definition of 2deep4u.
No it's not, every detail of the plot is just not explained.
And any depth it has is just basically about human relations and depression.
All the christian shit is just the theme they build the show around, it could be roman gods/hindu deities or just something they came up with on the spot, it's literally just the surface.
The question wasn't one of social pressure regarding uguumoefaggotry, but how does one get to be 20-30 years old, and find watching 50 eps of people acting like 5 year olds entertaining. It's amazing.
> every detail of the plot is just not explained.
That's what 2deep4u is. Purposefully obfuscating vital plot/development details in order to appear deeper and more thought out than it actually is. Employing symbols to distract from meaning.
Fite me m80, fisticuffs at dawn

Personally I like Paranoia Agent, Shinsekai Yori, just started Mushishi and it seems good, Zankyou no Terror was alright but didn't live up to the director's previous works.
Watamote can actually be sad depending on how much you look into it
japan's approach to the horror genre is different from america's in that there's usually a strong protagonist. characters die but you usually have a victory, so yes, it's horror
here's episode 1 via youtube, sadly with some faggot throwing a border around it
>Watch kaiji ages ago
>Loved the first season
>get 2 episodes into season 2
>can't muster the willpower to watch it
>Show her show
>Loves season 1
>gets 2 episodes into season 2
>"We can watch some of it later"
what is going on
Why not? Yes, Its amazing that people are entirely different. Decades of personal experience do it with people, they tend to have entirely different spheres on interest, desires and views on "how the world should be", up to hating each other guts for no barely any reason.
It should have ended after
Honestly, if they just stretched out their conflict to fit in the plot points of the later arcs and finished the same way I would have been happy.
Fuck Eureka Seven man. Fuck it to death. It was decent but fuck that show. I grew up in a town called Eureka and every time that faggot Rintintin fucked up the pronunciation it was like needles in my ears. Those god damn Zipperheads need to stay the fuck away from words they can't pronounce right. Or maybe they refuse to because they think it sounds "cooler" or some bullshit like that. Fuck 'em.
>i can't believe people have different opinions to me
calm down. this happens with everything it isn't unique to anime.
and you can think endless 8 is interesting without calling it an unparalleled masterpiece
>ITT: /a/utists arguing that their moe school girl anime is clearly superior to TTGL
I wonder what would people try to achieve in the discussion?
Its even more pointless than sports fanatics hitting each other with bricks and pipes, because those at least can win in a local fight, and then their teams can win each other as well. In this case its just an autistic rant about how one thing isn't a pleb shit like another thing, and wishing death for mentioning or posting something from something: the show.
>this happens with everything it isn't unique to anime.
Almost exactly like what I said in my post! Thanks anon.
Endless 8 is as interesting as watching the same episode 8 times. That is - not.
How can you get depressed after watching that shit? It's so over the top and filled with positive energy telling you to never give up.
Whenever I need a good pick me up I watch the show.
There is no anime for adults period. Once you hit 16, you should start feeling shame for watching any kind of cartoon media. At 18 it should cause physical pain, to ensure you aren't degrading in your mental development.
Front Mission. The entire series, not just a specific game.
And if you combine it with TTGL for the final act, you get pic related instead.
Clearly you've never seen any good Moe animes like this one.
Oh boy you can use Wikipedia. I never said it wasn't. I just said its obnoxious to hear it mispronounced.
If America nuked Japan off the map, where the hell would I get my Chinese cartoons you dip?
>tfw it was the only anime that piqued your interest so much that you marathoned the whole season in a day
That was a few years ago, I can't do the same now since that whole timeskip shit slows down the series to a crawl for a while and then the anime starts taking itself seriously.
SPEAKING OF BABBY'S FIRST ANIME

>The Wire? The Sopranos? Rome?
Their format does not take advantage of low budget animation whatsoever.
You can't want more invigorating stuff and then be a lazy dumbass who can't be bothered to seek it out.
It's like bitching about the only original things coming out are Cape Comic origin stories when there's cinema contests, independent channels on youtube, and film fests.
G no Reconguista, Log Horizon, Garo, Fate/Stay Night, Parasyte, and Psycho Pass alone this season don't fit in those three.
>Slice of life
None of those are even GENRES either.
That's massively low to act like you know what you're talking about.
60 (or 6 a year if he's in his 20s) is fucking nothing if you aren't watching shonenshit that last up to 10 years.
speaking of that gif,
wish Platinum would make a Kill la Kill game with the quality more in line with their proper games.
(That Korra game was disappointingly below their normal quality)
Kill la Kill is absolutely perfect for a cuhrazy video game.
All those power ups, crazy moves. Muh god.
Fuck man, wish I had some proper game dev knowledge, I'd probably start making it myself like those guys that are making those Attack on Titan fan games. There's like 3 different ones.
Different as in different people. Still people and everything "people" could mean is still the same.
Still different enough to scream like a chimp "HOW DO THEY _____ THIS", when someone boots up music you hate, acts like your worst nemesis, watches a show you despise, lives a lifestyle that makes you depressed, or eats a food which mental image makes you vomit.
10 is low. 60 is also low.
Consider the fact that shows usually run around 12-24 episodes. That's slightly less than 6 to 12 hours of content per show. A six hour show can be finished in a few sittings, a 12 hour show can be finished in a week.
60 is not a lot with that in mind. I've seen closer to 200 shows.
What's the FLCL of video games?
PP season 2 is shaping up to be much better than I expected. Though I wish they'd come out and say the main chick is asymptotic rather than HEAVILY IMPLYING it every other minute.
What's the Space Dandy of video games?
Whats the /v/ of anime?
Its a common trend to distance and separate yourself from other boards. They want to stand out and feel "higher" than others. Calling others containment boards, shit taste and such helps. Sometimes you would want to tell someone on your board to "go back to" other "containment" board, in case you want only a certain behavior on your board.
>mfw followed /a/'s advice and bought the first 2 volumes of one piece
holy shit I've been missing out, it really IS better than the anime
It's a good manga/anime that became too popular for /a/
/a/ is just a joke when it comes to that, even going full retard as to say HIV/AIDS is no longer relevant and SAO should've used a more relevant virus/desease and hence bad writing
But this assumes you'd want to watch more than 10 or 60. That's why I think 60+ is a lot.
Most people should just bother with the greats like Evangelion and then call it a day.
I still haven't watched LotGH though.
I really can't be bothered to point out the same things yet again. We probably never spoke before, but I had this exchange many times beforehand. Same points, same retorts, same conversation.
In different scenario, maybe. Leave me your contact and I'll talk to you.
Irony of accusing others of having holier than thou attitude while having it yourself. Doesn't help that /a/ has a cute nickname for /v/.
They already started eating their own tail, because /a/ is too popular for itself.
Once a new show gets too much exposure on /a/, /a/ starts gloating it into the abyss. threads turn to shit, and even more threads appear and have nothing in them but a chat on how anime overall doesn't have any value, no humor, no artistic values, poor story. As for comedy, american sitcoms of 80s were the shit. And so on. Its committing a slow suicide.
At the risk of being banned from this godawful board:
Should I finish G Gundam or watch UC stuff first? I gave up after ep. 12 of both Zeta and G Gundam. I really just want to watch WitP for this nigga, but I'd have to watch the other UC stuff first.
And as I'm getting clobbered I'll say "guys, shouldn't you invest your tribal instincts into something more meaningful like racial or ethnic pride instead of something as inconsequential as sports?"
Then I'll die.
That applies to every board and 4chan as a general. This place is very counter culture, and as someone becomes more and more acceptable, this place grows to hate it more and more.
>/toy/ was the best board when you joined
>tfw now it's the worst
Nothing. I'm gonna watch Ninninger.
I'm trying to make sense of this post. So G no Reconguista, Log Horizon, Garo, Fate/Stay Night, Parasyte, and Psycho Pass are the anime you're saying try to tell a serious story like Rome, Sopranos, The Wire do?
/a/ is too big. Any discussion VERY quickly boils down to 'x is best girl, y a shit'.
One day some anons discovered that you can skip the arguments portion of the discussion and just call someone's *taste* bad.
It works just as much as it is hard to quickly recover from and as long as other people agree with you - it validates your and their opinions. It's easy.
The best girl is discarded and forgotten forever when new season comes out.
>Watching Zeta before the original
Well that was your first mistake.
War In The Pocket is really good, too. You can probably watch it without watching 0079 first, since it's pretty easy to figure out who is on what side.
I'm afraid I'll want to go back to watching the other once I've began watching one, and it'll prevent me from focusing on the show. I had to rewatch the first 3 episodes of Getter Robo Armageddon because of this. I think I might be a schizo.
Thanks for reading my blog, pls no bully.
Psycho pass is such trash.
>Top of the class student is shy, helpless teenage girl who cannot operate for shit
Shoehorned moe all over the place
i showed my sister ouran now she won't stop calling me senpai
>why did i lose
>because you don't have any friends
Honestly, I'm not sure if there's a good equivalent outside of VNs, maybe. Watamote is depicts depressive mundanity and disempowerment to a degree that few games ever have.
Numidium could probably beat anyone in this thread
The beginning of berserk and Golden Age arc is the best manga moments I have ever read. Vagabond comes close though.
Except that after like only a year on the job and one serious case she becomes incredibly competent and even innovative about her job.
You should try actually watching the stuff you shitpost about.
That part of the anime pisses me off the most.
>1 lone person brutally murders and rapes others in front of 50 people armed with nothing
>everyone is scared shitless and helpless because muh sibyl system didnt say nuffin
Esp in season 2 when that fat old guy kills like 5 people in the locked down pharmacy.
honestly I've only ever read the manga.
seriously though getterfags should play W101.
>The red sands of the moon. The wreckage of Nirn is eclipsed by the towering Numidium, a robot made of brass spikes, from head to toe, doing battle with the tiny various gods and heroes that oppose it. Some fly on strange beasts, some fly of their own accord, some use beam-weapons from a bygone age, others blast magic from their hands, eyes, or chests...the Numidium is winning this battle, though. Easily. This should be obvious by all of the smoldering bodies that litter the area near its flaming feet.
Can't beat the concept of denial itself.
that's the first and only anime that make me feel a huge fucking blank in my life after finishing it
this feel remained for weeks
I've yet to see an other anime making me feel the same thing again
>Implying TW101 isn't the TTGL game
>Implying it wasn't faggots like this who pestered Kamiya into total disinterest because they're constantly told MAKE A TTGL/KLK GAME
Hire some faggot modders to change character models around in Revengence and you'll have your KLK game and literally just play TW101 for TTGL.
No, but the ending conflict is basically identical.
>Horrific alien invasion force bent on completely destroying humanity
>They seem like horrible assholes who are doing it because they're just evil
>It turns out that they have knowledge that humanity's progress, if not checked, will lead to the ultimate downfall of the universe
>Heroes, in spite of this knowledge, use their hot bloodedness to fight back the enemy and resolve to prevent that bad future on their own terms.
Plus, Jergingha is top tier final boss.
>tfw Platinum will never make a shitty game based off of a good anime and then tell the makers of TTGL to fuck off and block them on twitter
My buddy told me for years that Evangelion was great. That's what I'd read on the internet as well. I'd just never gotten around to it myself.
So one day he sits me down to marathon the movies. Two movies in and I still know just as much about what the fuck's going on as I did when I started, which is to say fuck-all. I ended up giving up that day.
Is the anime better at explaining itself than the movies? I could understand if they had to leave some stuff out for the sake of time, but that was some fucking Inland Empire tier shit right there.
I honestly liked the ending. Everything up to that point was a fucking glorious trainwreck that ranged from the best thing ever to infuriating as fuck
I don't see why Kamiya does this, honestly. In between this and openly insulting his fans, he's practically throwing away money. Not even a big fan of his games, but it just seems silly to me.
Thank the fucking heavens they won't, it'd be shitty looking, be 4 hours long and have framerate drops.
I'd want the group that made Gundam Extreme Vs. to make a TTGL game, they know what fast paced combat is
