Unfortunately FFXIII came out for pc, so now I have to divide my time between GAII and that.
Just finished chapter 4, which I think means I'm almost caught up to where I was in my first playthrough.
That reaction was great.
I have a personal vendetta against FFXIII but there has to be some merit in how it got 2 sequels
Definitely what I thought at first but when bosses took around 30-40 minutes to kill, I kind of lost hope.
Plus all that clopping
If anything, it's still good to see you
I played the Newgrounds flash game first and discovered the anime on my T.V a few months after.
Ah good times
I forget to ask Lilybro, who did you make Tact end up with?
We've had one galaxy and canonically 14 Angels
I don't remember it being hentai though. Other than profanity thrown in every sentence.
I don't regret playing it, Ranpha got me into the series.
If anything, it's just the chest section. I kind of like the hat and monocle.
Just goes to show her audacity. I guess. Still a great character.
Something in me wants to find out, while I also don't want to considering that must have been really early flash animation
Man, the new season is really making nighttime /a/ move fast.
First one is from the game's artbook while the other is from the first one. I still think they shared some illustrations though.
Well, small amounts of anons and even a few shitposters.
I guess I'll try again tomorrow
Don't lose hope man.
Anyway I recommended hella people to try Galaxy Angel the other day so they'll probably find their way here eventually.
Well that's nice to hear. Where and whom did you recommend the games to?
Buncha random fags from /vn/ and I think some guy from /a/.
Also I don't have a lot of screenshots of this game because I mostly played it on my XP partition and win+printscreen shortcut doesn't work there, can't even alt+tab without crashing it.
What's with this resurgence of GA? Where were you all a decade ago?
So was I, that's why I was asking. I was into it, but only because of then-teenage voice actress Miyuki Sawashiro.
I am still curious why this is getting popular again. This was super popular, then it just... stopped.
>Crying over how I couldn't get the games because was young so I didn't know how to import or read Japanese
I knew that feeling quite well.
- Games in the 1st series finally got a translation a few years back.
- Painful memories of GAII Rune are subsiding.
Take your pick for why there's GA threads again.
As for why it just stopped:
- No more games being made.
- GAII Rune happened.
>I am still curious why this is getting popular again
This anon >>115132755 who makes the threads most of the time was very persistent and I guess after a while people either remembered or picked up the series and saw how great it was.
I ended up watching 2 years ago and was despaired about how no one seemed to talk about it anymore like a lot of early 2000s stuff. Coincidentally, as I picked up the games a couple months ago, these threads started popping up.
My answer is always clear
We had a really good thread 2-3 sundays ago and had around 10 people-ish. Apparently we got some anons that lurk but don't post either.
I try to judge how many people we have here based on polls but I assume a lot of proxy going on
Welcome back Forte-bro
Hopefully you don't have to keep the thread alive solo since we seem to have a few other anons here.
At least, I hope.
That being said we need something to actually discuss.
There we go.
What made it go so right GAbros?
Thanks, I also hope it doesn't turn a circlejerk every weekdays.
I really wonder why don't the characters in the games lampshade Forte's rather big guns? I had a hard time at trying to not look at them at first.
LewdMint-san posted one pic and just left.
I don't think mentioning that to a trigger-happy lieutenant might be a smart idea.
They just said "fuck it" for the anime, and it worked surprisingly well. Parody the shit out of everything and give no fucks while doing so. That's what made it so great to me.
Everyone probably got told that the overall mood should be kept high around them. Ranpha is prone to some violence while Mint still probably hears everyone.
It was the purest form of fanservice. Just showing the characters doing their thing. Yes a few swimsuits here and there but nothing over the top. Hell, swimsuits were as far as they went.
Times have sure changed
I really sound like I have nostalgia-goggles glued to my face. But I won't deny that GA is still one of the funniest things anime has given me
It's a unspoken rule here that we all consider them best girls. We just have our own chosen one.
Just ignore the shitposter
I can't even think of any other anime that matches or comes close to GA in terms of style and humor. Everything about it, characters, settings, etc., it all just worked for GA.
I've been re-watching the entire series recently and I can say I still get more laughs out of it than anything else.
>tfw you will never see the Emblem Frames in action
>No Milfy shouting "Ute!" while firing the Hyper Cannon.
>No Flyer Dance, which mimick the Fin Funnel animations of the Gundam Series.
>No Anchor Claws Smashing two Battleships
>No Strike Burst unleashing a Strike Freedom style Massacre without stock footage.
>No Repair Wave effect wear the Emblem Frames showing obvious waer-and-tear showing how the nanomachines work.
>No Fatal Arrow rapid fire between 5 ships, with piercing rounds.
In glorious 2D or CGI
>There will never be any good GA models or figures
I swear, if I ever have access to a good 3D printer, I will use the in game 3d models to make my own and airbrush them up.
This pisses me off so much. I'd pretty much buy keychains of them at this point.
Somewhat ingenious yet also an "okay" idea I guess. A few people did get BTFO though
Nano wasn't my sort of character to romance but I can only imagine what you would her for.
That being said, I ain't got the assets to the 2nd games
That was one thing I always kind of hated about Galaxy Angel story-wise. They've got the most powerful individual fighters in a war, but because they aren't actually engaging any real people on those ships, they're completely free of any of the consequences that come with being in a war and pulling the trigger.
Though, I know that would wreck the whole atmosphere, and GA isn't like that, I could see a character like Forte being perfect for coming to terms with what it means to fight a war.
>I'd pretty much buy keychains of them at this point.
>mfw I've looked on the english and nip net
>can't find a specific Mint keychain from the set I like
All things considered, they released an absolutely insane amount of CDs, and other misc merch. There's actually a GA alarm clock that's worth a good amount of money on the Jpaanese secondhand market.
Figure technology has come such a long way since the early 2000s. I'd still get that Mint one if I found it somewhere.
Official Kill Count
>Too many automated Black Moon ships/Val-Fasq
>Rezom (who the fuck cares)
At least we can say we exterminated some poorly written aliens that the second games retconned
I still feel bad for her. Shortest end of the stick in both games and anime.
But that's what made her amazing.
Didn't Nefuria off Rezom though? Speaking of him, he got his fashion tips from the Principality of Zeon, didn't he?
What's are some of your favorite songs from the franchise anons?
This is getting stuck in my head
If I remember right, Nefuria remote activated his ship's self-destruct and tried to make it kamikaze the Elsior. It just happened to blow up before it could reach it or something.
I'll have to go look that part up again sometime.
>Didn't Nefuria off Rezom though?
Yes, she did. Sherry wasn't a direct kill either. Her ships got damaged and she tried to go out with a kamikaze, but her ship blew up before that.
His clothes are a little too generic to say it came from Zeon. Though, his head thing reminds me a little bit of Haman Karn's head gear in ZZ.
Only a sketch.
Looking at it now, Lily was pretty as fuck
There exists THE final fight of the series where a portion of what you described somewhat happened.
Just wait til you see it. The finale GA II pulled off made me get up from my seat around 5 times
It's the last thing I'll do. I went in blind and it was fucking insane.
I'll look forward to your reaction
Oh shit, we had all the GAII anons here
Yeah, but you can win without using them at all. Granted, it still is absolutely amazing to watch them in action. But mania on the other hand... You absolutely need to use them or you face a very brutal ass raping.
Mania makes the Three Marquis look like badasses. Well, maybe just Genievres
Correction time. Last battle is the only one in MK I liked, and ranks with ML last battle as my favorites.
I'm pretty sure it was because she was a smug, arrogant bitch and wanted to laugh off whatever feeble last resistance she thought they were going to put up.
She also probably felt very confident in herself when she saw the Final Weapon instead of the Elsior itself. Unfortunately for her, she was very wrong.
What a bitch.
Which reminds me, other GAII anon, who did you go for?
I haven't actually played it but. Lily Sherbet.
In just a few pictures and reading some of the summaries of her stories. Man, I really wish the games were translated.
I somewhat found ML's last fights to be a chore but looking back at it now with the reinforcements and the music, I think I can forgive it.
I mean its better than the first game's final fight where you fight to kill off those satellites. EL still had the best missions
All this Lily love
My respective favorite girls.
Keep in mind I haven't actually played GA2 yet.
Lily's routes are comedy gold next to Anise who was my second choice. I guess I wanted a change of pace from the regular girly-girls and I don't regret my decision
I think this song really helped
I may be in the minority but Moonlit Lovers will be THE final battle in GA for me.
>mfw Forte and Vanilla rapping
Yeah I feel the same. EL had a good final battle in my mind, but ML felt climactic as fuck. EL wasn't that challenging either depending on what angel you chose. But when you don't have the firepower, that feeling when Gear Gern turns behind the asteroids coming straight for your anus is pretty tense.
Motherfucker got his own CG in the PS2 version. That ship was a fucking tank too. I guess the music factored into it as the GA II had great final songs since Wing of Destiny was balling.
Who the fuck was pic-related. Sounded way too young to be Gern
Fuck that long range laser so hard
His ship had atrocious turning radius though and unless the ps2 version was different, he couldn't fire through the asteroids. Just have the Elsior circle the asteroids and he'll chase (badly) like a retard while I have everyone take out every other target, reinforcements included.
I was contemplating this a couple days ago actually. I legit think that it was probably a character that either got the axe or became someone else.
It doesn't sound like Rowil in tone, but if I had to guess for someone it would have been him.
Weindoesn't fit the bill at all, yet Gern would be the best to make light of 100 years time. However, it doesn't really sound like him either.
So apparently Broccoli included a guidebook in the final game that had more info on the Angels, villains, extras, and some of the planets.
Then of all things, it gives a "dismissals" to all the fans in the final pages.
I can't even read it but I just know I would be somewhat teary-eyed
Anyone who wants to take a crack at it, here you go
It's probably just a case of written and voice acted before the idea completely solidified. Rowil would make the most sense since he was placed in command of the invasion fleet.
Most likely axed.
Luft got mentioned twice, old man is still kicking and is still Admiral.
Shiva Emblem Frame when
Tact is a much better male lead compared with the usual harem protagonist nowadays who either.
-A useless or spineless beta.
-Or an instantaneous chick magnet.
I didn't like the manga version of him since he's a straight skirt chaser.
I didn't realize how much I liked him until the 2nd games where he's the side character but still the commander.
There's this scene where he tells Kazuya to choose and girl and Kazuya being Kazuya, he kinda gets finnicky and Tact tells him that a few years back, Tact was in the same position in choosing which angel he would have to choose.
Shit had me feel so nostalgic.
Coco a qt too.
They could only bring so many people back
I can only contain so much amount of hype and callbacks. Shit would have made me explode
It's GA-male appreciation time
How many versions of Eternal Love are there?
There's the regular one with just one singer. Props to her since she sang a lot for the series but never really voiced anyone in the games.
Then we got the Angel Wing version, then the Rune+Moon Angel Wing version, and out of nowhere a 20-man version.
I think those are it
Not listed: Eternal Love 2006 and 2007
Lucky Girl was Milfie's best song.
What was Ranpha's?
Torn between her main themes from the anime and games.
I thought I wouldn't have to put too much into the pastebin but fuck, there's a lot. I'll put it up shortly
My answer will never change, Angelic Symphony is great.
But Wing of Destiny comes that close
MAD with some cutscenes, watch with risk of spoilers
Now I want someone to upload this. Geez, what else I haven't found out?
Correct me where it is needed
>There will never be a free-form GA game where you can create your own battles just to dick around and have fun.
It hurts to live.
From now on. This will be on every opening post.
The one on bakabt is actually out of date. Nyaa has version 6. That's one file I will seed for all eternity as long as my PC is running.
You need to split the file up. Foobar2000 can do it with the right plugins. That album was one of the lossless ones also if I recall.
I'm considering revamping that entire pack if I can find the time. It's a huge mess and some of the files can be converted to more common files for ease of access.
Well, pastebin seems to be decently done for now until some people debate over which subs but w/e.
Zettai Ryoiki no Tobira => Door to the Absolute Territory
Mugen Kairo no Kagi =. Key to the Infinite Corridor
Eigou Kaiki no Toki => Eternal Recurrence of -something-
I'll add a few more things for music later. I might have to link a YT channel for the hell of it too
As I always do, thank you in advance. Aside from the larger thread we had a few weeks back, I think I liked this one the most since we had, surprise surprise, actual discussion.
Even got a pastebin done for you guys. I'll stick around as always but once again, thank you GAbros for staying. There might be a thread tomorrow, we're missing a few of our number anyway
Its a great honor to spread the love of GA.
