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
>>
I've only seen New Getter. It was alright, Ryoma was a great MC though
>>
Getter Robo? More like Ghetto Robo, am I right? I kid. The shows are okay. It's worth watching once, but no more than that.

Manga>>>>>OVAs
>>
Aren't I supposed to read it?
>>
>>122397398
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:

>>122397398
The OVA's are fairly enjoyable if all you want is a good ol' dose of crazy action, but the manga is by far the better work. It's a shame they'll never properly adapt it.
>>
just watch gurren lagann

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.
>>
>>122397634
Damn thanks man.
>>
So, Armageddon is the best one out there right?
>>
>>122398151
Yes, despite how they made Go a completely different character.

No problem.
>>122398151
Either that or Shin vs Neo, with New generally being considered the worst.

No, Neo v Shin is better.

Really? I thought Neo was alright

Once you make a Black Getter you can't get better

>>122398270
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.

>>122398459
I meant New

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.
>>
>>122398459
>>122398576
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.

Oh thank god, for a second I thought this thread didn't have the image yet.

That should be like post 2.

>>122398566

Only Saotome was a scientist, the other 2 were Invaders.

Armageddon isn't perfect, in fact I'd say it actually has quite a few problems.

But it was the first Getter animated production that managed to capture the insanity of the manga.
>>
>>122403915
Too bad the insane production values only lasted until the third episode. Everything after that was a chore to watch.
>>
I thought New Getter Robo was fucking stupid. Fun to watch, but dumb.
>>
>>122404332
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.

>>122404375
>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.

It still hurts

Go is fantastic.
>>
Haven't watched the any Getter anime besides Armageddon, which was a bit disappointing. I've read all the manga though, and Go was my favorite.
>>
>>122408559
You should watch Shin vs. Neo, it has Texas Mack.
Also one of the best opening scenes in mecha.

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.

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.
>>
>>122397795
the hell is this gurren lagean ripoff
>>
>>122410038
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?
>>
>>122410187

honestly I though SKL was shockingly tame
>>
>>122410181
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)
