>>
>>144274671
I really liked it. Good animation and excelent OST.
The second ending is the best.
>>
>>144274671
If you ignore the MCs, it was a pretty decent show.
>>
>>144274671
first episode was top tier. if they kept more about the jazz mc instead of going and doing the regular gundam pseudo-intellectual shit it would have been even better.
>>
>>144274671
Definitely enjoyed it. I heard rumors of a film in the fall.
>>
>>144274788
Didnt watch December Skys yet. Just finish the 4 episodes. However the ending could of been better in episode 4 would'nt doubt at all the second ending is better
>>144274948
I really like MCs. It feels like there just doing whats necessary

nice substanceless show kids can enjoy.

The movie is already out. It's just the 4 episodes edited together with a few new action scenes and a very rushed epilogue scene. I hope there's a sequel so that they can adapt the entire A Baoa Qu part from the manga

I like Io and Daryl as opposing MCs. Neither of them have some grand plan for evil or peace. Both of them are soldiers just trying to survive and get as many of their friends out alive

Is it better to simply download the movie, or to watch all four episodes separately?

>>144278922
Just watch the movie, it doesn't cut anything out, you don't have to deal with the sunrise logo, and you get a few extra scenes.

the movie has extra action scenes and the thing at the end already posted here. the movie

I agree completely, it's short but so so sweet.

The ost really nails it though, if it went orchestral like unicorn it wouldn't be the same, not to knock on Unicorn's ost though.

It has even been dubbed, google is to hard for you anon?

>>144281727
Yeah I have a weakness for jazz so I absolutely loved those bits. Incorporating the jazz into the story? Brilliant!
Can't remember last when there was a jazzy ost in an anime. RahXephon, Bebop and Blue Sub no 6 probably, and that was way long ago.

To bad it goes full retard after A baoa qu in the manga.

>Everyone wants to get their hands on that data.
>Daryl is strongly implied to be a newtype.

At least the redesigns are still cool looking. Especially the new GM C-types and Acuguy.

To be specific, the cult leader was part of a newtype experiment during the war on the EF side and after he was given a year to live he was abandoned. He joined a cleanup/sweeper group cleaning up battlefilds where he found Claudia dying and the Reuse P device. He's using the data from it to extend his life somehow and his newtype swag to brainwash and manipulate his cult followers.

The Thunderbolt manga takes place in an alternate version of UC. The designs in Thunderbolt aren't variants, they are literally what that design looks like in the Thunderbolt setting. It is literally the Thunderbolt settings version of the Full Armor gundam, complete with RX-78 inside.

This may have been the best Gundam series of all time. I'm not being ironic: Generally, a lot of the franchise ain't so good. Even Unicorn gets fuck-retarded at the end.

All the AUs are horrible, and some of the later installments suffer from Tomino writing. Thunderbolt, though, it's basically everything I wanted from a Gundam series.
>>
>>144284541
00 was okay tho
>>
>>144284541
>it's basically everything I wanted from a Gundam series.

An adaptation of the first part of a manga series that has like half the story chopped out or rushed through, a few events altered, and some nice battles?

Spoil the manga epilogue. How does everything end? Do Io and Daryl die?
>>
I liked the animated version, and I like the manga version.
A lot of people say it jumped the shark, but I like that it's just going over the top with ridiculous bullshit. Io dogfighting 6 Dodais and downing 5 of them, in the air, with a basic ground type GM was great.
>>
>>144284778
As far as I am aware, the manga is still ongoing. I think he's talking about the epilogue of the first part.
>>
>>144284626

Honestly, I've always wanted a Gundam series where they're in the shit. To my embarrassment, I really don't like the 'Gundam-isms' in a lot of shows: Peace princesses, non-lethal KOs, plot armor as thick as the Death Star, et cetra et cetra.

Thunderbolt has none of that. Even the plot armor is greatly lessened - Io and Daryl both have one 'extra life' that is used when dramatically appropriate. (The same lightning bolt deflects the killshot and wakes Daryl up when Io is closing.)

It's like IBO. Remember when Ein showed up? Remember when he didn't get to kill any of those fucking orphans, and Kudelia was annoying and useless as always? I don't want more of that shit, but Gundam always pushes it.
>>

>I really don't like the 'Gundam-isms' in a lot of shows: Peace princesses, non-lethal KOs, plot armor as thick as the Death Star, et cetra et cetra.
So you love early UC gundam up until whatever is after victory?
>>
>>144284665
>Washing Machine Gundam
Just kidding. I really like Turn-A, but that was ridiculous.
>>
>>144285044

Yep! I'd say, however, that I have a lot of trouble understanding Tomino's writing at times. Occasionally, the actions of the characters make no sense to me.

I dunno, I think he's only got more and more impenetrable over the years. I have no idea what's going on in G-Reco, for example. I can't even say whether it's a good show or a bad show, because it's incomprehensible.
>>
It was good but it was too rushed
>>
>>144284535
thx
>>
>>144285101
Greco was the way it was, because it was a 52 episode show condensed to half of what it should have been for whatever reason.
>>
So is Amuro motherfucking Ray the most alpha man in UC? He fucks Char ass and his sister.
>>
>>144285044
Wing started most of those tropes. G Gundam came after Victory, and it's like Build Fighters but with actual mechs. G Gundam's a fun super robot show that doesn't try to be like other Gundam series, so it avoids those tropes for being a different beast.

Wing started the trend with peaceful princesses with Relena, insane plot armor with Heero surviving the Wing's self destructing, and EW had the protagonist non-lethally disabling mobile suits. G Gundam also had the latter, but fighting was mostly done out of sport rather than war.

that's not yazan "so good not even space autism can beat him"Gable
>>
>>144274671
December sky will probably be my favorite movie of the year if Moana, Red Turtle and the new Shinkai movie aren't that good.
>>
>>144285304
Amuro Ray is the ultimate. He came in Beltorchika's mouth, pussy, and anus while Char kept crying about that nigger Lalah who like Amuro more instead of fucking that hot bitch in CCA, but Amuro realized that sticking his dick in a "poo in the loo" would make his dick impossible to clean so he fucked Char's sister and left her. Also, Hayato's small cock couldn't please Frau, and thinking about Amuro makes her wet as seen in Zeta (more like Beta.) But Amuro is a good man, so he won't fuck his bro's wife.
>>
>>144274671
I genuinely think that it is currently, next to OG Gundam and Zeta, the best that franchise has to offer. It accomplishes so much in so little time and effectively tackles every major theme Gundam has covered before without stumbling over itself. It's well written, has the best animation within the franchise, carries a killer cast of voice actors, and has an exquisite soundtrack. Moreover, one doesn't have to be a hardcore mecha/Gundam fan to easily consume it, so it may also serve as an entry way into the Gundam as a whole.

Best Gundam series in a while. Not sure how much source material there is but I hope we get a second season.

>>144286117
The jazz in Thunderbolt isn't that great desu.
>>
>>144274788
What happens in the movie ending? Io escapes?
>>
>>144287901
For an anime about jazz, sure. But as an OST, it does well enough in complementing the series.
>>
It would've been up there alongside 0079,0080, and Turn A for me if only it ended after A Baoa Qu.

Space monks is just too stupid, and Atlas Gundam is super out of place in early UC.
>>
>>144274671
I like it pretty much. It really shows the suffering and the realities of war in a Gundam show. Also, that every enemy soldier you kill had a life before becoming a soldier. It really poses good questions to ponder on.
