Fucking amazing.

>>122564242
The real ending was not animated. This was the Empire Strikes Back part of a bigger story.
>>
>>122564038
Saw first episode, doesn't seem like anything good, felt like a shonen with shallow characters. The OST was about the only thing that stood out. Not sure if I'll keep watching.

It depresses me that they'll never make the sequel.

I don't really want to watch something that'll end up being average or just ok. From the interaction and the overall feel I got from the first 50 minutes, I sense that it will keep being average.
>>
>>122564399
I've heard that the anime's story is different. It's somewhat like a fanfiction of the manga.
>>
>>122564544
If you think what you saw is average you a probably one of these losers that watches anime for "the story".

If your time is that precious why are you even watching anime at all?

I watch enough mediocre seasonal mediocre shows. Yes, I find them entertaining, but if I'm going to watch a finshed anime, I don't want watch more mediocrity. I want to be entertained by a noteworthy series.
>>
>>122565113
There is nothing mediocre about Giant Robo. The onyl thing you could reasonably call mediocre was the story because you might just not be into that type of story, but everything about it really is exquisitely high quality one of the highest quality OVAs ever made. You have to be literally blind to miss that fact.
>>
>>122564038
I think I have to finish it
>>
>>122565194
I don't care about the production values, I want to immerse myself into a great story with valuable characters. This is what I meant by mediocre, Robo's characters felt like they were from a shonen manga. The setting itself doesn't seem like anything noteworthy too, although it doesn't matter much. But the peek I got of the OST was very good.
>>
Incredible they somehow manage to make this many OVAs before studio was like FUCK YOU ALL PEOPLE THE COSTS ARE CRAZY YOU FIRED!

>>122565409
>>122565113
It's considered an all time classic. People in this thread have now told you that it's good. Here, I'll even reiterate for you. It's not just the production values. It's got a poignant story full of grandeur and pathos with a multitude of colorful characters with varying motivations and a wheels within wheels background story, all of which delivered over 7 OAV episodes which manage to flesh out a world and characters in a way that many 2 cours series don't manage. It's Imagawa's love letter to an entire era and one particular mangaka's lifetime work.

If you still insist on your first episode judgement that it's mediocre, then by all means, ignore it and go watch all the exciting stuff you have on your backlog. IMO it gets more intriguing with each episode, but if the style is not your cup of tea and you don't want to give it an actual chance, then cut your losses and both sides will be happier for it.

Ginrei was goddamn hot. I really need to watch her special one of these days.

Thanks, I'll keep it safe in my backlog and look back into it soon enough. For now I'll check out Kill la Kill.

>>122564038
It's alright, but I don't like it as much as Imagawa's Tetsujin 28 remake.
>>
>>122566202
I have been meaning to watch that some day soon.

I think the main robo design looks dumb. That's why I haven't watched it, because the only reason I watch anime is to see cool/badass things and it doesn't look very cool.

I used to dislike the ending for ending on such a cliff hanger. Then, after I learned about the whole story setup, I realized that this was "The Empire Strikes Back" of the laid out story and I accepted it as a really cool setup for the (probably never to be animated) grand finale. Hell, it even has its own Imperial March:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IMQVjXRM5o

Also, the story of the Shizuma crisis did really get a pretty thorough conclusion, so in hindsight and after having thought on it for a bit, I'm pretty fond of the ending.

>>122568476

It doesn't make the ending any good, especially since in the case of Star Wars first they had a full conclusive story with the first movie and only after it's success did they end the second movie on a cliffhanger because the third one already had the green light

And the Shizuma Crisis ending was retarded anyway, it was seriously just a stupid misunderstanding, if the entire conflict could have been solved by just adding one line of dialogue then it's shit. It would have been better if professor von Folgor had just been a dick

>>122568845

One of the best soundtracks in all of anime.

The show as a whole was also great. I feel like people might appreciate it more if they've watched at least some stuff in the kung fu movie tradition.

I was just pointing out you looked like you were arguing over which had the most casual taste in anime? I don't care to participate in the discussion.

And no, casual doesn't mean the anime are bad.

That doesnt mean that the anime is good or bad, but you can't really say that TTGL didn't use it to build extreme hype

>>122569366
I don't like the Batman TAS animation style though. I'll give it a shot. robot girl looks cute as fuck.
>>
>>122569558
It did, it's hype as fuck., and TTGL is great.

It's still a pretty casual level of discussion when you're arguing over EVA, TTGL and G Gundam for which has the hypest track in their OST.
>>
>>122568892
I think it holds up well enough. You can Frodo pretty much any story into the ground with questions that leave out the circumstances under which things took shape. Besides, it's a tragedy at heart. Many things which could have been prevented happened because that once sentence wasn't uttered or the intent of an action was misunderstood and various people used the momentum to further their own agenda.
>>
>>122569690
>EVA
>hype

Besides the James Bond rip-off track, there's no hype in it
