Gundam 0079 movie trilogy.

I'm all over the place, I just finished 00 S2, watched F91, War in the Pocket, and half of Stardust Memory in between episodes, and watched 8th MS team before 00.

Struggling to finish Dancouga and Dougram, Not because they're bad (much the opposite) but due to poor time management of mine, I pick too much new stuff.

Guess these threads always fall to the /m/ side of things eh?

I enjoyed 00 regardless, though I agree season one was the better half.

The OVAs are pretty good, it's refreshing to see different sides of the war

After a cyberpunk thread a few days ago I started watching Cyber City it has been pretty fucking awesome. Too bad ass for the newer /a/ user. They would instantly call it edgy grimdark ect.

There's just so many great cyber punk OVAs from the late 80s to mid 90s, it's great.

I want to watch Vision of Escaflowne because I saw two episodes of the dub on Fox Kids when I was in high school and was instantly hooked, but then I missed a couple because it was in a weird time slot and Fox canceled it.

The dub was an absolute hatchet job in terms of cutting shit out and adding useless recapping and shitty music, and it was still one of the most compelling shows I'd ever seen.

Everything I said also applies to Tekkaman Blade which I saw as Technoman dubbed on The WB before Kids WB was a thing. It was also canceled only a few episodes in and I've been waiting to rediscover that show for YEARS.

You should watch it Anon, has an awesome fucking soundtrack. Also great design as well.

Same here. I thought it got better around episode 8 when they introduced a new Sailor and it became a bit less repetiive. Usagi is still best, though.

I'm currently watching Gundam 0079 for the first time and enjoying the hell out of it. The "outdated" animation's actually charming. Especially since I watch it on my modded original xbox, which is hooked up to an old CRT.

After that I'll be trying out every gundam series & non-series summary movies in production order.

I'm also gonna start watching Kimagure Orange Road soon.

oh yeah, and it's been a while since I've seen it, but Jin Roh, the last great hand drawn masterpiece.

The original xbox is probably the best moddable console of all time, surpassing the wii.

You can play burned xbox games, have a huge selection of good emulators (many of which are still in active development after all of these years), moddable RAM and HDDs, can use XBMC as the OS, run linux, stream media to the console via your local area connection, etc.

Softmodding it is incredibly easy, but yes, you do need to order stuff. It's pretty cheap, and you'll get a good game out of it (the method apparently also works with a version of the original mechassault)

Zambot is just GREAT. It's "Proto Gundam" in regards to how it handles the effects of giant robots fighting next to a city.
It doesn't always point it out but the constant destruction of the planet and the hatred of earthlings for the Jin Family end up being very realistic considering the situation of CHILDREN piloting mass-destruction machines against an army of world-destroying beasts commanded by an extremely hedonistic Genghis Khan.

Aside from the grimdarkness I noticed Zambot 3 had a few "proto-Real Robot" aspects: needing repair supplies was a plot point in one episode, and in another episode later on they talk about mass-producing Zambots and having the government train people to pilot them.

But it's objectively shit. It's like a feminist's wet dream. I will probably drop it after a few more episodes as I can barely tolerate it as it is. I am at episode 16 at the moment, which is basically halfway through, and so far it's below mediocre.

It's exactly the opposite of that. Did you miss Anthy's entire character? You just revealed that you aren't understanding jack shit about the show.

Did you just see Utena wearing men's clothes and say "yep this is about female empowerment! damn feminists".

I just finished CCS today. It was alright but yeah, you can tell it's a show meant for little girls. Very simplistic and dragged out to all hell, but it definitely had some great heartwarming moments here and there. Don't regret watching it, but most of my favorite episodes were pretty early on, like 16 and 40.

Also watched Riding Bean which was pretty fun. Wish it could have been longer, between this and Gunsmith Cats it's too bad there was never a movie-length anime with movie quality animation.

Currently watching Getter Robo Armageddon which is absolutely insane and nonsensical, I don't really get what Dr. Soatome was trying to do with the Shin Dragon. Was he seriously trying to destroy the world just because his daughter died? The art is damn cool looking, though.
>>
>>110650964
The movies are the best place to start, I guess.

Z is pretty mediocre, man. Did you forget about the whole middle chunk of the show?

Tenamonya Voyagers had some really cool visual style, however the content itself wasn't particularly captivating. The ending was certainly abrupt, but it didn't bother me that much since it wasn't really interesting to watch in the first place.

What about her character? She is a useless bitch that does fuck nothing and her existence is a huge mystery or something of that ilk. The whole series is like your typical shoujo crap that's like a compilation of the worst fanfictions a couple of autistic fujoshits came up with.

>>110650468
The handsome men fit very well with the feminazi's worldview. They have this very twisted perception of manliness where men are more like women but powerful and scheming and vile. It's the way they perceive the patriarchy. The dependent little sister is just a common trope among shoujo crap - it's pandering to the fujoshi who always wanted a strong and handsome man in their life. The rest is pretty much the same - common tropes and motives found in the crappiest of shoujo.
>>
>>110647743
I animation for 40 Fire was way better than NG Lamunes, but the plot and robots where inferior to NG.

Seriously, in NG Lamunes & 40, the main character is freaking badass. He has a cool robots, battle tops (that he could use to travel on), and Da Cider.

The next show starts out fine, but the character are basically helpless outside of their robots, Da Cider and the Hero are forced into the same robot, Kaiser Fire only has a single attack, and the ending is pessimistic as fuck. The fact that the show basically ignores almost everything from the previous one didn't help.

Purus are one of the many miracles of the universe, motherfucking Judau had TWO of them all over him.

Guess I'll be rewatching ZZ with the new subs after I finish rewatching Zeta. I'm enjoying Zeta a lot more on second viewing than I did when I first watched it, it's a strangely comforting thing to watch despite being so depressing.

I'm also working through the original You're Under Arrest TV series, which is kind of OK but nowhere near as tight as the OVAs; I'm almost finished with all things Patlabor (aside from the brand new stuff) movie 2 was probably one of the best things Oshii ever did.

Gundam wavers in quality anon. Personally I'd say Zeta is the highpoint in TV series, ZZ is mixed (but overall fun), CCA is disappointing, 0080 is great and another highpoint, 0083 is weak (but a guilty pleasure), F91 is great but too rushed, Victory is wasted potential. And so on and so on.

Allow me to give you a tip, youngster. To insult someone you have to tell truths about themselves that they reject or otherwise don't want to hear. By calling me a landwhale and a tumblr-user when I'm neither of those things makes you look incredibly foolish.

Also, Utena is not about when empowerment. When the hot sociopath fucks her brains out maybe that'll get through to you. Utena is about finding strength within yourself and the problems with helping other people.

It's still a form of self-censorship. Actually, in the case of Angel Cop it was a decision made by Manga video when they licensed it. No one should have to tiptoe around hurting someone's feelings in a fictional work. But hey, if you want to whiteknight authoritarianism you go right ahead. And yes, that does tie to modern "social justice" insanity because your thoughts are closer to that mentality than you may realize.

Unlikely. They just contain short occasional moments of nudity. Liek 00:26 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TlKN_d4Bg8

It should be safe as long as you don't live in Japan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CR32IfHHUBc

But my point was that even 3D movies had child nudity, and there's no need to single out old anime.
>>
>>110652713
It sort of depends where you are, but most nations have laws that protect and make exceptions for art and expression. Strangely enough 2D lolis are more likely to get you into shit in some places (Canada and Bongistan) than the 3D stuff.

I watched A Kite the other day, the violence was over the top and the scene when she falls from the building is completely ridiculous. I was surprised at how well the sex scenes worked in terms of atmosphere and extremely dark themes of abuse.
I definitely enjoyed it although I can't say I've seen many hentai with the same sort of scope before.

The sequel was pretty awful though.

Some people say the sex scenes break the flow of the story but I agree with you, they're really gross and uncomfortable like the rest of the OVA.

Have you watched Mezzo Forte yet? It's like Kite except fun.

The film is a Madhouse one adapting a Tezuka manga, the subs that came with it were Chinese, so the raw was probably Chinese but I found some english subs elsewhere.

Not exactly pre-00's, but I'm not really digging Diebuster so far, its not as good after watching Gunbuster, and it keeps throwing new shit ("oh yeah Nono's y'know, anyways-") and more fanservice than the first, and the fights aren't that hype inducing as the either. Maybe I'm just being bias, I'm only the second episode.
>>
>>110656427
The ending is just as good if not better than Gunbuster.

It's very inferior but do stick 'til the very end. That last episode is worth it.

>>110656427

>>110656427
It isn't nearly as good as Gunbuster. I feel like as a fun of Gubuster there's a lot you have to get over to enjoy it.

>>110656449
Nope not better at all. The fact that it resorts to a call back to the Gunbuster ending is proof enough of that.

First Stage was brilliant, probably in the top 10 of everything I have ever seen.

There were still cool moments after First Stage though, I think the main reason it lost a lot of its drive was because they moved off Akina for the majority of their races.

The Manga was still great afterwards, Akina didn't have much to do about it. The anime directors, animators, SOMETHING got changed and everything just sucked ass.

For instance, in the Manga, Keisuke is a huge character, the "uphill" racer for Initial D, while Takumi is the downhill. In the Anime, every race involve Keisuke isn't even animated or mentioned.

Possibly. I just felt that the familiarly of Akina throughout the entire first season and the whole race with Ryosuke set in stone from early on but never happens till the very end gives a great feeling of IT'S GONNA HAPPEN

And then it did.

And it was amazing.
