Exactly what is the point of other mecha anime in the following two years again?

Did MC and his best friend finally fucking die in the second season? MCs friend turns to crystal and just resurrects basically as an alien, but doesn't suffer the side effects of when an alien takes on a human body/mind. Then MC goes blind and then recovers for S2. Where were the lasting consequences for the protagonist team? For the two people who kill the most and use the robots far past their limits.

Rina's entire life has been one long consistent train of suffering by Festum.

Everyone in her generation was wiped out.
Her parents were eaten by the Zero.
Her grandma will likely be dead at the start of this timeskip.
She's the only logical former pilot to pick up the mantle of R&D that Canon left when she turned to pixie dust.

It's how her character development will likely go.

When will these two get to rest, they keep getting drag back into new battle. Also, I'm going sad that there probably won't be a new Core Minashiro.

This is objectively wrong.

Season 1 was perfect quintessential mecha series. Season 2 was a mistake.

>>151560899

I was there. It was half dead and would barely get any posts even on episode day. Meanwhile, G-Reco still gets daily threads.
>>
Will we see more based Kenji?
>>
>>151561080
Everyone's got their preferences, but Exodus was pretty universally praised by those that saw it. Can't imagine what bothered you so much.

And the /m/ threads were fairly active at some peak high points, but it's a slower board than something like /a/. They were at least active enough to inspire the requisite bitching and moaning about generals existing.

So or so.
He has proven that he can still do anime for them.

>>151561944
Heroic Age was actually good.

Fafner "fans" are the worst. In "" since there are no actual fafner fans, but only poor individuals that mistakenly believe to like it given mecha starvation.

Well, I'm happy.
>>
Wow, this is my first time seeing a legit shitposter in fafner threads.
>>
>>151561978
Joke is on you, I've been a Fafner fans for 10 years and back when I watched and loved S1 I didn't even like mecha anime. I was one of those "I like this mecha show despite the mecha" fags.
>>
>>151562037
Mecha vs Monster or Kaiju shows without mecha are japanese phenomenon and in general shit and not intended for anything other than Japanese kids watching them. NGE kinda broke out of the mold, but that does not apply to fafner.

So your taste is bad and you should feel bad. So should all MuvLuv fans.

No. The prequel spoils a lot of things form season 1 and there aren't any compilation movies. S1>Prequel>Movie>Exodus.

Release order is probably best.

And nah the "recaps" are just clips played to music, it wouldn't make any sense. The actual show is pretty damn good past a certain point.

Why? I've seen some really bad shows in my time, nowadays we get those bottom of the barrel chinese anime every season, but Gundam G-Reco was some next level bad.

I didn't even know it was possible to come up with a story, plot and characters this bad. It was like some sort of autistic rambling of a madman. Time cube theory comes to my mind when I think of G-Reco.

It helps as time goes on being able to just appreciate how stupidly overpowered the Nodos are, that's the fun part. There are a few episodes halfway through that are basically one giant continuous fight, that'll probably make or break it.

It's not the most interesting or memorable show, but has its moments.

There's liking bad shows and then there's liking g-reco, which was so repulsively, nauseatingly bad, and so incoherently written and directed, that I find it unbelievable that anyone could have sincerely enjoyed it, heck i have not seen a single coherent and honest positive review of the show, because it's simply impossible to review it positively. Even Tomino himself shat on it.

The only people who pretend to like g-reco are die-hard tominofags who can't admit that their god could do anything wrong (even after Tomino himself admitted it was total mess) or people who have developed stockholm syndrome for the show and feel the need to defend it because of how hard it got shat on by everyone. Then again, I guess they could just be contrarians.

>>151565405
>>151565441
This is not only outdated but that episode of G-Reco aired months after it finished because Gundam Official didn't actually start uploading the episodes until the show was done airing. And TRY was fucking garbage so the fact that you're using that as evidence for anything proves you're full of shit.
>>151565545
He never said YouTube liked it just that it had a bigger community then all those sites listed. Their opinion on G-Reco is irrelevant because the show wasn't readily available from the start.

That's not true. I'm just perplexed that someone could SINCERELY like it.

It grew on me. The fights start becoming a bit more balanced when the other Nodos start showing up, and the focus starts shifting more from "will Age pull it off" to the mystery behind the Nodos, their restrictions and the Gold Tribe. That's what made it work for me.

>FMP is probably going to end up looking better than Yamato
Yamato has literally every fucking studio working on it in some form. FMP was given to XEBEC because KyoAni passed on it and nobody else wanted it hence why they got a stand in as a director. Fafner is passion driven because every installment has had the same staff working on so they'll take their time. At worse FMP will look as bad as Argevollen or as as good as Break Blade.
>>
>>151567572
Overall? No, but their love is a strong one.
>>
>>151567572
Super gay. But not the annoying Yuri On Ice kind of gay when its done to make a statement. Its obvious that Soushi and Kazuki are gay for one another as much as Soushi tries to push Maya on him but its done in a subtle (as subtle as anime can get) way that makes it closer to brothers instead of lovers. But they're totally fucking gay.

FMP has all the 2199 mechanical staff along with Horuichi. In fact the mechanical staff is better than 2199. They didn't just end up at Xebec, they wanted Xebec precisely because of 2199.

The anime is also going to be a big showcase for their new CG team, which they're creating just for this production.

Then there's Yamato in which Sunrise DID isn't working on it nor do they even have their top staff at Xebec on it (all are either on FMP or Fafner).

You're being stupid.
>>
>>151567572
S1 - 7/10

S2 - 6/10

In terms of how gay each is.
>>
>>151560531
Fafner is a hidden gem. Because of the hirai faces and the fact it's a long running series people are scared off since it's not possible to jump into the new series without watching all the older stuff.

The thing is that it's a masterpiece and one of the best mecha anime in years. It's worth the hype.

If you ARE planning on watching it, be ready for lots of tears though. It's a series that kicks you in the balls when it can.
>>
>>151567676
I'd argue Kazuki is pretty homo, easily. Soushi, even while considering Kazuki his most important person, still seems canonically straight since he really, really wants to fuck Maya.

Though Soushi was much more colder in the first season compared to now they just made it more blatant in Exodus. Basically the subtext is there but its done in a way in which the show doesn't draw attention to it because it doesn't define them.

Kazuki's gay. Soushi played along because if he ever told Kazuki no, there was a high chance Kazuki might just move on to Maya, who Soushi wants to fuck. It was literally a game of gay chicken for Soushi in the vain hopes Maya might get the hint

Are you fucking stupid? Yes it does.

-Mechanic Director for 2199/FMP (which means he's responsible everything mechanical related and is the head honcho): Masanori Nishii
-CGI Director for 2199/FMP: Shōsuke Uechi
-Mechanical Animation Director 2199/FMP (although he was more an assistant for Nishii for 2199):Yu Kato

It's even better than the 2199 mecha staff because they have Takuya Matsumura in tow. A guy who has been the mecha guru there for their 2D projects.

It's without a doubt their best mecha team and they're all, besides Matsumura, holdovers from 2199.

Wrong again retard. Yamamoto had more mechanical staff working on it, Nishi wasn't the only one nor was he the head.

Matsumura worked on 2199 retard also 2199 had several animation studios working on it as well as industry vets. The very fact that you're stupid to believe this, like most FMP fags, makes you look like a jackass.

>>151568764
Wasn't it because of consideration for Soushi? There wasn't really time to get together with Maya due to Kazuki having to defend island all the time, and getting together with her would hurt Soushi who was in love with her? Kazuki could never settle down.

My memory is really foggy in regards to Fafner. I'll have to re-watch both seasons when s3 airs.

>>151569327
Name the staff on Yamato 2202 on the mechanical animation side that are holdovers from 2199? All you have are the designers and Kobayashi (who wasn't really involved in the mechanical animation side to any notable extent). I'll wait.

The fact that you're saying Nishii wasn't the head is amazing. We have translated interviews in English where he talks about how he was granted the unusual title of Mechanic Director because he was responsible for the mechanical shots both in production and animation so they gave him the title to reflect that. He was responsible for any shot involving mechanics.

http://ourstarblazers.com/vault/793/

>Interviewer: Your job title was Chief Mechanical Director this time; what kind of work was it, specifically?

>Nishii: I asked from the first stage to do the mecha direction, and my wish was granted. >With respect to mecha scenes in general, what kind of picture does a Chief Mechanical >Director make? It is the person responsible for the work. Although Takashi Imanishi >does the CG for a mecha scene, it was my discretion to decide whether to fuse it with >the hand-drawn part. In other words, it leads to “how do we show this shot.” Not just the >means of expression, but also how to handle it on a production basis, including motion.

Matsumura worked on 2199 but he wasn't heavily involved in the production hence me not counting him. Hell almost everybody at Xebec worked on 2199 to some capacity but it's not worth considering if they did some low amount of work. Katsuichi Nakayama worked on the 2199 OVAs but he didn't do much besides a couple of episodes so I wouldn't consider that to be significant. The movie though is a different deal.

If you don't know what you're talking about, please stop talking.

Yeah. It's largely a unique platonic love born out of a massive sense of guilt and responsibility, but there are other times where they just have these odd moments that make me question.

It goes beyond homo at this point, they have to accept the curse of surpassing the circle of life and will forever be tasked with protecting the island.

With the way they are now it won't be long until they start being treated like legends, or spirits.

Season one can be considered atypical anime friendship with a lot of subtext and the most gay thing to happen is this moment. Everything later is anyone's game where their friendship becomes love as Kazuki only scenes of interaction with the cast are with Soushi and to a lesser extent Maya. This doesn't really go into pandering terrorityory because its handled well and their relationship goes beyond "I met you as a kid and now you're my best friend for life" that mecha anime always does but one in which you get to learn how much Soushi has sacrificed for Kazuki and how much Soushi means to Kazuki as an individual, now its easy to write this stuff off as being gay but it wouldn't be all that surprising if it was made official nor will it deteriorate their characterization up to this point.

Season one isn't bad it gets substantially better after Shoko's death which is also around the time Tow Ubukata took over and everything just falls into place when it becomes apparent that this just isn't an Eva clone. Its pretty much smooth sailing after it where every installment gets better and better.

What's good about s2?

Pacing was off and plot dragged like a snail. First season was slow, but it didn't drag, because they spent a lot of time developing the characters and relationships between them. I thought the character drama was handled splendidly and very realistically, it was the main reason why Fafner quickly became one of my all time favorite anime. That's the big difference between S1 and S2. S1 wasn't afraid to take a break from the fighting to develop the characters. S2 was all about action. Constant traveling, fighting and suffering, none of which was particularly engaging and rewarding. Essentially, S1 was all about characters and personal drama, S2 was all about action.

Characterization also seemed off in S2. Kazuki and Soushi went full gay because showrunners wanted them fujoshibucks. The rest of the cast became hyper caricutures of themselves.

Too many characters were being killed off and new ones introduced. I thought the deaths were much more meaningful and impactful in the first season. Besides, watching people die all the time gets tiring and loses its effect when it is repeated ad nauseum. I couldn't even remember much of the cast in the second cour besides the main characters from S1.

They were milking the SUFFERING too much. The first season was dramatic, rightfully so, it's a story about survivors of a post-apocalytpic world living on a small island in constant fear of death and with uncertainty of their future. They approached that setting with care and seriousness it deserved. Second season dropped all subtlety and made SUFFERING the highlight of the series (along with fujobaiting). It became too overdramatic.

I think S1 handled everything better. The only thing that improved with s2 was the animation. I don't have much hope for s3 because of how much s2 messed up the story and because I feel they're going to keep milking that fujoshi cow, which is only going to further cheapen the story.

>>151574143

I mean, what the fuck is even happening anymore? Soushi and Kazuki are gay demigods. Soushi was reborn as a kid? Three gay dads. Kanon became a time traveler and then was killed off. What's happening with Maya and does she even have a purpose in the story anymore? What about the new gen pilots with their deus ex asspull powers? The story is so muddled. You need a drawing board to connect all the plot points and characters.

Canon's arc was a fantastic time travel story, fuck you.

>power boost gives each of the pilots what they wanted most
>most of the kids wanted to be stronger in various ways, so they got combat-related boosts
>Canon was confident in herself as a fighter; her wish is to be with Kazuki
>Canon's power boost lets her be with Kazuki but at the expense of Tatsumiya (kek, the only future where they can be together is one where they're literally the only people left alive)
>Canon deliberately kills herself using her power to prevent that future from coming to pass
>by sealing off the bad-end futures (including the future where Kazuki and Canon are the only ones alive), Canon ensures that certain probabilistic events needed to ensure a good end (like the psycho haircutter mom noticing the currents) occur, preventing the island from being wiped out

Time travel gives you a glimpse of your heart's desire, and you have to reject it in the most permanent way possible, by using time travel to kill yourself. Damn.

Either I wasn't clear enough or it went over your head, but one of my main points was that s2 wasn't nuanced enough in terms of writting. Piling bunch of questionable plot developments on top of each other every episode doesn't make the story better, just more muddled.

This is literally what G-Reco did, except in a much more retarded and incoherent way. Instead of developing any of the characters or plot lines, they just kept introducing new ones every few episodes. Are you perchance that G-Rekt shitposter? You're certainly using their favorite retort. Muh "chinese children's sunday morning cartoon too complex to understand for you!".

>Pacing was off and plot dragged like a snail. First season was slow, but it didn't drag
Season one had a very slow start and was thoroughly unengaging until the writer switch and where everything essentially comes into place. Fafner Exodus starts off strong out the gate and never stops, I agree that the an issue with Exodus is that the new cast isn't as engaging as the returning ones and outside Sui's drama with his piece of shit parents none of the 3rd Gens really develop as characters also the Army characters are pretty expendable all things considered.
>Characterization also seemed off in S2.
I disagree. The characterization is still strong for the returning cast. One aspect I love about this series is seeing how the characters grow (seeing the main pilots of S1 get initiated into Alvis, seeing Sakura and Kenji tie the knot and seeing Maya "finally getting what she wanted" were great ). Soushi and Kazuki didn't really have much to grow after S1 and the movie just that Kazuki finally accepted that they're in this fight against the festum forever with Soushi accepting Nict (nothingness) and generally being more sociable while retaining his awkwardness.
>Too many characters were being killed off and new ones introduced. I thought the deaths were much more meaningful and impactful in the first season
Shoko's death was terrible.Wouldn't say the deaths were more impact just that they weren't really expected. Mamoru's death hit me hard though especially the repercussions it had on the cast. I'll say they had more impact in Exodus because they did more with the characters well the ones that weren't Argos or the Army outside Walter-san.

>They were milking the SUFFERING too much
I somewhat agree with this due to the expedition and the monologues that came with it (People died today, we're running out of rations, more people died today) got old fast everything else I thought was fine.
>>
>>151575205
Now that I think about it some more, wasn't there some more tragic implication that Canon's wish to be with Kazuki was CAUSING the destroyed-Tatsumiya timelines? Like she was unconsciously wishing them into existence, and part of killing herself was to prevent that?

Actually I'm done, cause this is really is going to go on.

You pose some valid arguments, but personally I didn't experience any of your points as being faults or that they made me dislike the show. I didn't find the pacing to be off since it took it's time to world build and develop characters.

To me the new characters were developed enough as they were. They were only there to fill in the gaps and even though that was their role they did have more back story and development then most other shows I know.

The new gimmicks did not feel out of place to me and felt like new obstacles for the characters to overcome. I actually liked that they stepped away from the "everything is certain doom" stuff of S1 and instead had them grow past those problems to find new ones.

>Kazuki and Soushi went full gay because showrunners wanted them fujoshibucks
Soushi literally tells that gen 3 kid who likes Maya to fuck off when she's talking with Kazuki.


>The rest of the cast became hyper caricutures of themselves.
how?
Kenji chilled out and became a mature adult, so did Sakura.
Soushi is less autistic, and more focused on his goals
Maya matures into a pilot and has to deal with the morality of killing other people
Kazuki is still himself albeit trying to figure out how to deal with the festum as a whole
Kanon feels more comfortable on the island and feels like she has a family, and goes to extreme lengths for them

I'll agree with you that the second and third gen pilots could've been treated better, but I'd say we still had a lot of good development with some of them in this series

>Akira learning how to deal with the death of Hiroto, the value of life, and the reality of the situation he's in

>Sui still having to deal with the death of his sister in the RoL operation, and his relationship with his parents
(This is something lost on you if you haven't seen RoL, and even then you still have to connect the dots yourself)

Even so in the end Fafner's focus is on ensemble casts and their response to a crisis, with only a few who get thoroughly developed, and in that perspective the series has done very well.

Future's so bright I gotta wear shades.

I might have to rewatch Exodus though, I can barely remember what happened.
>>
>>151585909
Don't know.

Miwa is 2 in H&E, 4/5 at the beginning of Exodus, physically around 10 at the end of Exodus. If it's been ~14 years since Exodus (making Soushi Two the same age as the Gen 1 pilots in Dead Aggressor), she's chronologically ~18. Physically she could be anywhere between ~18 and ~24 depending on whether she's aged steadily or slowed to adjust for her growth spurt.

Misao's Mir is one of the North Pole fragments and Misao had his first flash of individuality shortly after the North Pole battle, so I suppose you could say the original was "born" around the same time Miwa was chronologically. If you want to distinguish between Sphinx!Misao and Core!Misao, he's two years younger than her chronologically. And physically he's in his mid-teens, same as the Gen One kids in the first series.

We'll have to wait for a shot of aged up Miwa.

Altair is on Earth, being kept dormant by the Tatsumiya Mir. That can't last forever.

Hester still controls a good majority of the Earth's military power AND still wants to go through with the Red Shoe Plan.

Gregory and Johnathan are still both alive and functioning, even though they lost Vagrant, the fucking cluster of Gordion Crystals is still in tact in space acting as a hub for Gregory to let him shitpost globally

3 major antagonistic groups. Not to mention opportunistic Festum and Humans who'll try and snipe one of those 3 and replace them if given a chance like Burns and most of the Azazel types tried to during the series.

iirc he had residing hate from something in the past, but it's been like a year since I watched Exodus so I don't exactly remember.

I think that just some Altair type they were trying to kill with nukes or something prior to his arrival

>4. How did Kurusu rebel against his Mir, and could other low-level Festum do the same thing?

He started gaining individuality during the north pole battle, long before he rebelled.
By the time he did rebel he was already pretty much his own person

he was able to obtain his blessing which like Kazuki allowed him so surpass the cycle of life & death.

>>151587541
1. Core got assimilated by Polaris when Festum attacked the island

2. That was the Sein trying to settle on after eating a shitload of Festum

3. Partial assimiatlion. Basically he made Soushi a part of him. He took all the Soushi data in the Mir and put it into himself to keep his Mir from deleting it. The Mir gave him a human body to try and convince Tatsumiya to surrender. His Sphinx body was crammed inside it. So when he ejected his Sphinx body to save everyone, he left a nice convenient hybrid body for Soushi to take over. Basically he was driving a car with Soushi in it, got out of the car and left Soushi the keys to the car.

4. Kurusu realized individuality, which is what a lot of Festum started to realize they could do after Polaris got nuked. That they DIDN'T have to obey the Mir. They could, but most get strong armed anyway.

5. Mir is an alien life form. Festum are the servants that the Mir creates to act for it. Mir's produce Festum through Cores, which are basically the brain/heart of a Festum that produce a lifeform to a Mir's designs

6. Exposure to Festum genetic matieral and contamination from Festum activity. Likely also do to the fac tthat the Tatsumiya Mir likely contaminated proto humanity before going to sleep in prehistory.

7. Genetic mutation. Same way some people are born retarded and others aren't. They just got lucky.

8. A Festum's default action upon death is to try and reboot itself if it can't sustain it's body. You see this most clearly in HaE when a Sphinx "reboots" itself into one of those Red fuckers to not die. Most Festum don't get the chance because their Cores get shattered.

So if a Festum expends all it energy but it's Core is intact, reboot.

If a Festum's core gets smashed, no reboot.

So when Soushi exhausted his body, his Festum physiology just rebooted.

I think you could kill either of them with enough firepower or if you eliminated the island's Mir. They just won't die natural deaths as long as the island's Mir exists -- Kazuki is Forever 21 and Soushi turns into a baby when there's too much strain on his body.

Kazuki's definitely tragic; he has to watch everyone he loves die, and he only sort of has Soushi for company. Soushi should be fine as long as he gets a clean mental reboot every time.

(I hope all the Soushis leave messages to each other in Nicht, though. "Note to self: no more chokers." "Note to self: at age seventeen, we can drink exactly two-point-three beers before getting embarrassing.")

>Kazuki is Forever 21
I think he'll still be able to age.
If Soushi's second form did then why won't Kazuki's?

How do I get into this series? Is there a watch order or anything?

I meant the blond kid from the first series, not Gregory.

Otherwise, thanks.

In theory Kazuki and the rest of the Festum Four would be rebooted as babies if near death, too. Kurusu did it once already, plus technically Tsubaki/Orihime.

I don't really understand why apparently the PV showed an unaged Kazuki, Soushi definitely aged, and Kouyou technically did with the help of a brand new body. Maybe it's a conscious thing, like Soushi not realizing for two years he could heal his eye.

>>151588056 had it right for that one. The core of that island had probably been long since assimilated, Idun was just a Festum that had gained his form.

Oh, well I haven't seen DA in a year or two, but Tsubaki wasn't inherently good either.
She started out a blank slate, but after befriending Seri she learned things like compassion for life, and the appreciation of it.

As for Idun I can't recall, but he was probably not around friendly people like those on Tatsumiya

I knew you meant Idun.

Production order is Dead Aggressor -> Right of Left -> Heaven and Earth -> Exodus.

You could watch H&E second and RoL third, but you have to watch both before Exodus. If you really hate slow starts and committing to a long watch, I suppose you could watch RoL before Dead Aggressor -- RoL is Fafner at its most beautiful, while the first few episodes of Dead Aggressor are slow. The trade-off is that you'll be spoiled for some of Dead Aggressor, and it would be hard to keep up with some of the worldbuilding. So production order is best.
