When you drop it to rewatch Turn A.

It doesn't.

literally Tomino's worst TV series, even Brain Powerd was better

When you start paying attention.

It gets somewhat bearable around the latter half (ep 17-18) when you can actually put some of the pieces together.


it was a fucking mess no matter what the apologist say. It was like an abridged book play

Why can't retards stick to products more fit for their underdeveloped brains like Aldenoah, Code Geass and Build Fighter?

I like to think they just wanted to make a meme out of it. Otherwise it would be too sad to believe there are people who genuinely think reconguista is good.

>>152521999
I just don't get how it's any different from Tomino's past work. Zeta, CCA, F91, Victory, they always feel like an incomprehensible mess

What the fuck is this? Why is it a random clusterfuck of movies/TV shows?
>>
>>152522175
Like I said it's not only that it's hard to grasp its the whimsical nature of the show.

Everyone acts like they were on a stage play, there's 0 tension, 0 drama, and the story wasnt that great to begin with.

I enjoyed it I won't lie to you but it was really bizarre and cryptic

This is really the problem, there's no reason to get invested in whatever is happening.
These characters are always running left and right for various reasons but the show fails to make it have any weight.
The retarded pacing that doesn't give the characters any space to breath is probably to blame.

Go back to MAL. If it was going to fast for you its because you can't pay attention and need things explained through exposition ten times.

It's not that it doesn't make sense, only that it's presented as unecessarily complex even though it's a rather uninteresting and unoriginal plot. Much like the latest Star Wars.
>>
>>152521695
I loved the second part of AGE. It was a pretty good time. Grandpa Genocide from part three was also pretty good, but the third part is where the series shits the bed hard.

G-Reco came out two years ago.

I like it. And most people will admit it's divisive. Let him watch it and form his own opinion.

Build Fighters was literally the opposite of haremshit.
>>
>>152525644
>Tomino's genius
Could you define that? From what I've seen I'd say Tomino used to be a decent writer. But even at his prime he was far from being a genius. He just lucked out with a great marketing concept, (a mix of hard sci fi and giant robots to sell toys to kids), and he didn't even write the best instalment of his own franchise, that is War in the pocket.
>>
>>152527300
Yes, I know.

TRY was the haremshit.
>>
>>152520230
Never, it's one of the worst TV Gundams. Watch Majestic Prince, Kuromukuro or Fafner instead.
>>
>>152527423
It's got my wife Barara though.
>>

Why did you even start watching this garbage? Did /m/ trick you into it?
You might as well turn off the subtitles and just enjoy the animation.

Found it quite interesting (other than Bones reusing the launch animations who knows how many times). Much better than Star Driver for sure (which was boring AND pretentious too)

0079 is okay and I haven't got past the 3rd episode of Turn A yet.

Part 3, where it's revealed Asem is a dead beat dad who abandoned his family to go play pirate for retarded reasons, all the traitors are back in the federation literally one episode after Flits purge making the whole thing pointless, a Federation officer gets paid off by the Vegans with a big cartoonish bag of money, Kio goes to mars and trades away the secrets to the age device for medacine to mildly alleviate cancer symptoms for a sick girl he's onyl knwon for a day, Zeheart goes full retard, Kio goes full jesus yamato and actively saves his enemies from his allies kill shots but doesn't bother to save his allies, while pressed for episode time to wrap up plot points they spend 2-3 episodes focused around a plot irrelevant character who dies at the end of the arc anyways with no real impact on the main story or the characters, THE MARS COLONIES COULD HAVE MOVED OUT OF THE MARS CANCER RAYS AT ANY TIME BUT CHOSE TO SIT IN THEM FOR NO REASON, and the big bad of the series who started a decades long war of genocide for his retarded plan dies happily in his sleep at the end.

And that's just what I remember off the top of my head. Sometime during gen 3 it just shits the bed and then keeps shitting the bed. Before that it was mostly just "Meh" and boring at its worst.

>>152527314
>hard sci fi

Gundam is very far from hard scifi, especially early gundam. What he lucked out on was being one of the first to use giant robots as tools of war between humans and when the plamo started coming out after it ended Bandai started using that concept to market the plamo as "Real Robots" to make them stand out from other giant robot cartoon's toys.

And most of the stuff about the particle technology and the like was actually come up with by the fans and then formerly adopted by Sunrise afterwards.
>>
>>152520230
Reco's pretty good.
Its story suffers a lot from pacing because Tomino didn't get 50 episodes,so a lot of story elements get thrown out the window.
For example proper Characterization is only given to a few of the main cast, and all the minor characters act really cartoony, but everything else is A+ material.

Character designs
Mecha designs
OST
Animation quality
Battle choreography
Sound design
VA casting

The Atmosphere and world building is also handled pretty well, it's like the show was more concerned with showing its world than it was its characters and story, but hey I'm not complaining.

If the show had 50 episodes it would've easily been one of the best anime of that year.

I wish I had a better webm, but the show's animation was a real treat.

Someone over on /m/ mentioned that G-Reco was Overman King Gainer 2.0
Gainer being my favorite mecha, I marathoned G-Reco and truly it was very similar to it, but G-Reco just doesn't capture the fun that was Overman King Gainer in my opinion.
>>
I liked G-Reco. . .
>>
>>152528850
lol Tomino wanker
>>
>>152528843
>but G-Reco just doesn't capture the fun that was Overman King Gainer in my opinion.
Reco took place after ANOTHER dark age in the gundam metaverse timeline.

King Gainer is Eastern Eskimos trying to find the promised land.
The underlying tone of Gainer was way more positive.
>>
>>152528709
>If the show had 50 episodes it would've easily been one of the best anime of that year.
Honestly it would have been fine with 39
>>
>>152528843
King Gainer was worse, at least G-Reco had an ending
>>
>>152529013
I know, it just needed more episdes in general, but I say 50 because it seems safer, and nowadays anime studios don't release anime with odd numbers of episodes like 39.

Unless you're Durarara, that whole second season's delivery was so weird.

For Reco? He wanted to do more but the guy is getting old, he couldn't do it.
>>
>>152529091
39 is three cour, there's nothing difficult about that.

>>152529207
He said he wanted to do 52 but didn't think he could manage it.
>>
>>152528428
The writer should stick to writing Saint Seiya Football. Danball Senki was like this too.
>>
>>152523782
And yet Geass is better written than G-Reco. It doesn't leave over half the audience confused about what the hell someone just did or said. Think about that for a moment.

>>152523904
IBO is praised by normals everywhere. No use denying it.

>It doesn't leave over half the audience confused about what the hell someone just did or said.
Japan understood it fine

How is Gundam Reconguista? Gundam Reconguista is really bad! I was thinking, "What are they doing?" (laughs) Compared to this Parasyte, which was fairly interesting... Tomino... How should I put this? He doesn't engage with anime fans. It's fine to make it for today's kids, but who does he think kids today are? Who does he think the kids that watch Yo-kai Watch are? (laughs) I don't know what's what. I watch a fair amount of anime, and I can't figure out what's going on. Ordinary people watch this and don't know what's happening, but Tomino thinks it has to be like this. Tomino hasn't changed at all. (groans) Tomino... Ugh! Dialogue won't work, lecturing won't work... [...] Nope, I'm not watching Gundam Reconguista.

>>
>>152529059
King Gainer had an ending too. Just less about the plot and more about the main cast.
>>
It's one of those shows that easily could have been good if someone had wrangled Tomino and restructured his script for the two coeur format.
It's painfully obvious that the old fart just wanted to shove all his ideas in and didn't give a shit about adjusting the story structure and the character development.

Aida was pretty though.
>>
>>152531772
And it has been proven that they misquoted the article and ANN has a serious bias against G-Reco so trusting them on gundam is ignorant if not outright dumb
