Guilty Crown was fucking amazing, dude.

There hasn't been a show that could top it yet.

Dude I'm watching Yurikuma Arashi that's basically high, right?

>>122911497

This pretty much. As much as I hate how the characters treated each other, the writers did some amazing stuff, setpieces that belong in something better. Like when they deflect the 'improvised missiles', storm the evil HQ in a minivan using snoozing artilley, anything with the gravity gun, the reflection dome, the holographic assault etc.

>>122911604
Granted I haven't seen SEED Destiny, it's much worse than any of the shows in the OP pic. At least those were fun to watch despite having varying degrees of bad writing, Buddy Complex on top of top of the worst use of time travel I've seen was incredibly dull.
>>
>>122911384
CG, then maybe GC, ater that Ange. I even enjoyed GC vey much till episode 12 I only disliked it afterwards so I am not sure how to rank this.

The worst were VVV and Aldnoah, even though I kinda liked the first few episodes of Aldnoah but it turned out to be pretty damn bad.

>>
>>122911384
Of those that I've seen, Ange > VVV > Seed Destiny > A/Z. I'd put 00 S2 (which also gets shit on constantly) over all of those though.

I really need to get around to Geass. I've been putting it off way too long.
>>
>>122911384
Code Geass was awesome, fuck all the hate it gets on /a/.

I feel the same way about Cross Ange.

VVV, Destiny and AZ are shit.

Never saw Guilty Crown though.

Code Geass is a fairly decent mecha series.
Code Geass R2 is an off the rails trainwreck that definitely belongs with the rest of them.

chode gayass is not less trainwreck than any of those.

Cross Ange is the only one of the Geass derivatives that reached the correct amounts of retarded to be "stupid yet worth watching" like Geass.

GSD shouldn't be on the list nor A/Z.(Not discussing the fact that they are bad, just that they don't belong grouped with the other four. Original SEED would fit better)

No it's not. You can have fun with those shows since the staff clearly didn't give a fuck but GC suffered the same problem as Aldnoah where it took itself too seriously.

For all it's faults Code Geass was well-produced and had some forethought put into it. Cross Ange looks like dogshit and it's obvious that the people behind it didn't put nearly as thought into it.

Great job with the umbrella criticism that could be used for literally ever series, you went even one step farther and included "writing" as well when characters and story are already part of the writing, truly a display of retardation

Try naming what's wrong with the story and characters, you fucking moron.

It's Fukudas wild ride, it's fun and that's all it needs. Tusk/Momoka surviving where they should have died a few episodes back was bullshit though.

aside from nina purpleton and the last gundam barely getting any screen time I enjoyed it.

>>122914801
Do you remember Nina and her inane relationship with muh Gato. They spent so much fucking time on that shit for no reason. It felt like they shifted writers for the last part of the series. She is arguably worse than Reccoa and Katz.

Got Valvrave out of my backlog this morning

I have a hole in my heart right now because there are no more episodes

Go back to Reddit.

Anyway, people have been giving shit recommendations on /a/ for years. Half of them are on purpose. We have 50% actual Guilty Crown fans who just have shit taste, and 50% fans with better taste who pretend to like Guilty Crown out of the pleasure that someone might accidentally watch it on their recommendation.

Most rec threads used to suggest Boku no Pico, Guilty Crown is just newer.

It's rather foolish to separate them so neatly, as the better parts of Code Geass R2 are actually quite on the rails with the rest of the show. Just different rails from whatever you wanted. Still has a good protagonist, great final battle and resolution. That's not much of problem.

>>122914354
/a/ is not a hivemind and while there are those like you who think it's shit others don't think so. I think Code Geass is rather average on balance, which is acceptable enough.

I'm watching Macross 7 right now, I wouldn't say it's bad but it's certainly not as good as SDF Macross. That said I prefer Basara/Mylene's music to Minmei's.

Except for the fact that they changed demographics between seasons and completely rewrote season two.
>>
>>122915943
Yeah, it does get annoying after a while but they change it up enough for it to be bearable. I'm on episode 34 so even if I did find the music annoying there's only 15 episodes left.

That reminds me, in the torrent for Macross 7 I got 4 other folders of shit (Macross 7 plus for example), they look like OVAs/films, do I need to watch these as well or do I just continue to Macross Zero?

Demographics changed slightly, not radically, and they only had like three actual scripts available to rewrite. Lelouch was always going to get captured at the start of the season, just a in a different way, and he was always going to have a similar ultimate conclusion. Which was really just an extreme extension of his behavior towards the end of S1.

Code Geass and SEED Destiny made Sunrise rich to the point that VVV and CA were made to replicated their financial success (to no avail)

You can tell since they're still milking Code Geass to this day and no Gundam show after SEED and SEED Destiny brought in figures (BD/DVD and plamo) to exceed or even match (Strike Freedom still outsells Exia/00/00-Qant shit)

>>122916560

Gundam SEED and Code Geass were popular and good enough that people liked them even with disappointing continuations. The other shows are just increasingly worse variations that lack any of their positives, so it's clear why they're not making a lot of money. You won't get too many people to care about their recent output.

Aldnoah is boring as fuck, and so are the threads. The only thing that I enjoy about that show is watching Inaho's shenanigans.
>>
>>122916775

Guilty Crown only has disposable enemy grunts and one hero robot that is rarely piloted by a secondary character. It's definitely not a robot show.
>>
CA feels so directionless. Salamandinay didn't end up as important as she was alluded to, that dinosaur shit never went anywhere. Seems like everything they were going for got scrapped halfway through the show so they could focus on setting up Emburrio as a final boss.

AZ was purely commercial. They took a tried and true set up, pandered to the right audiences, and got Urobuchi and Sawano to put their names on it. I don't even like hating on AZ because it's such an easy target, and it's not really even bad so much as bland. GC is mostly the same deal but more stupid.

What's your favorite bad anime in general?

/m/ told me not to watch SEED
>>
>>122917012
Every single popular show has hype, the question is whether or not people stick around and speak with their wallets. That's not unique to SEED or Geass of course, but also applies to other anime properties, even long-running ones. Once you're decent enough to get fans there will be a more flexibility to deal with the bad parts.

Unless you like bad animation, bad characters and drama (NICOL WAS ONLY 15! HE LIKED TO PLAY THE PIANO) you can pretty much avoid it.

>>122917196

The original SEED TV series is dated and has a couple of issues but remains fairly okay for its time. If you're ever curious, at least watch that.

>>122917241
I'm 90% sure most people that hate on Cross Ange didn't watch more than a handful of episodes. They saw the trashy shock factor fanservice in the first 3 episodes and declared it shit.

Not saying it's great or anything, but it has a somewhat competent story and characters with far less asspulls than other "trainwreck" shows.

Kira was a good character before he became Jesus Yamato in GSD. The bit about Nicol was overdone. The animation isn't good for the characters but can be quite great at times with the robots. Strike itself is a memorable and influential Gundam design for the modern age.

Code Geass is literally the greatest TV show yet made. Even though R2 had quite a few rough patches, it prevailed in the end.
