Given the complaints many /a/nons have towards modern shows (Generic Teenage MCs, Wish fullfilement, gary stus, forced fanservice), what does /a/ think of the Getter Robo shows? (mainly Armageddon, Shin vs Neo and New Getter Robo). It doesn't follow any of the mentioned cliches and it's awesome as all hell
Yes. You read Getter Robo Saga, and then partake in the OVAs and Daikessen if you want more. Potentially the Toei anime, if you really badly need more Getter. Get the manga from here:
Armageddon and Shin vs Neo are great, but I felt like New was bland as hell.
The manga is superior to all, though, especially Go.
Yes, despite how they made Go a completely different character.
Either that or Shin vs Neo, with New generally being considered the worst.
Still don't understand how they thought sticking a bunch of old scientists in the Dragon would give them enough incentive to copy that one fight in the manga when Ryoma and the gang where in fucking Shin Getter.
New isn't really that bad, it's just the weakest for many reasons, not the least of which is an excessive focus on Ryoma.
I found it alright too but not up to par with Armageddon and Shin vs. Neo.
The final battle was pretty fucking hype and New Getter is one of my favorite designs but it probably should of been shorter. The Seimei arc dragged on a bit too much.
Side effect of Imagawa leaving after the third episode. The middle part is definitely weaker than the start but once Ryoma, Hayato and Benkei get back in Getter it starts going up again.
>Fun to watch, but dumb.
Pretty much sums up the OVA's. Wouldn't have it any other way except a full adaption of the manga.
>You will never see Getter Robo Armageddon the way Imagawa intended.
>There will never be a faithful anime adaptation of the Getter Robo Saga
It still hurts
Kei a QT
Reminder than Ken Ishikawa's Kyomu Senki is being scanlated by Dynamic Pro Scanlations.
Some say it's as good as Getter Robo Saga. Like Saga, it's a compilation of stories by Ishikawa.
If you watched New Getter, here's a character you should recognize.
Remember this fat fuck? He appears in Getter Robo Armageddon.
I thought all 3 OVAs were equally great. Also, we simply can't talk about the Getter OVAs without mentioning Shin Jeeg and Mazinkaiser SKL.
And if we're talking about Kawagoe's mecha directorial work, we also have stuff like Transformers Energon, Super Robot Wars OG The Animation, Innocent Venus and EX Driver.
Innocent Venus could have been much better, but the story didn't go anywhere unfortunately, and Jin should have really stopped playing the Piano.
Fucking Mazinkaiser SKL. You go in expecting edgy and come out feeling metal as fuck.
Shin Jeeg can't be described with words so the pic will have to do.
It's a fanart of Getter Robo Go drawn by Hiroyuki Imaishi and compiled in a Getter manga tribute to Ken Ishikawa's legacy.
Why do I even bother with obvious trolls anyway?
honestly I though SKL was shockingly tame
That appears to be fanart of Getter Robo done in Gurren Laganns style.
If you liked Gurren Lagann I sugest you read getter as it was one of the main influences for Gurren Lagann.
There's also the Cyborg 009 2001 anime which he did, which is arguably pretty good.
If he could do something like this for Ishinomori, I'm sure Kawagoe could have done a similar faithful manga representation for Getter Robo.
Too bad most of you think he's a trashy director, and would rather suck Imagawa's dick (Which I like too, but actually doesn't detract my love for the works Kawagoe did)
