Yurika is still mai waifu
Still haven't bothered with the movie because of how needlessly grimdark it is when compared to the show.
Also I never cared much for Ruri and I hear the movie is 80% Ruri-fag fanservice
HOKO RASHIKU MUKATTE YOOOOOOOOOOOO
I'd say its more cruel than grimdark, like what happened to Gai, only he died and Akito didnt.
At least he has an /effay/ af fit.
The movie also suffered from a number of horrible decisions, such as having the events of what happened in the three year time skip explained only in a video game on a system no-one played and intending the Movie to a first in a trilogy but never actually told the audience of this, and ultimately Kia Asamiya took his ball and went home.
yeah, the Saturn and the Dreamcast. Both systems to some extent flopped outside of the Japanese market, and even if they didn't the likelihood of an anime game being released on the system back then in the western markets was not high.
The trilogy thing really hurts because the possibility that Nadesico will ever get some sort of reboot is practically zero. So the franchise, particularly for western audiences, very abruptly ends at the end of the movie with a whole lot of question that will never be answered (unless you somehow manage to find a working copy of the mission, but even that doesn't answer everything).
That's life, anon. She can't just say "yes" if she doesn't actually want to. Even if it hurts him it's better for her to tell him straight up rather than lead him on.
The fact that he lost a partner for his hobby afterwards was sad as hell as well. Makes ya' wish he never confessed.
As long as Ruri is best, nothing else matters.
Finally got around to watching this and Gai just died. As much as I tend to like the character archetype he is, how am I meant to feel anything for him and the casts reaction to his death given I've known him for all of 4 episodes and know hardly anything about the majority of the cast? The way I've seen people talk about his death I thought it would come at a point where the viewer would feel some actual impact.
That's what I saw it as but I was expecting something entirely different from the amount of Gai love I feel I've seen online. Maybe I've just been taking posts the wrong way given I hadn't watched the series when reading them.
sadly, old anime music holds up better than old anime
>BRB gonna put stickers on my robot.
Ruri seriously trashes Rei. Ruri's not some emotionless doll and her stinging sarcastic off the cusp comments are pure gold.
This anime is gay.
That's what people said about Swapnote.
>he despises what they did to his story
You mean make it much, much better? The manga was pretty bad with the whole alternate universe emperor Akito butthurt about his waifu dying.
The level of creative liberty they look with the source material. Don't get me wrong, I honestly think Nadesico manga is a pile of hot garbage and is amongst the worst manga I've ever read, and the liberties they took undoubtedly made the anime itself the superior product.
But in the end, the creator has final say in his creation, and if he's willing to allow pettiness in relation to his garbage fire of a story, then so be it.
I honestly never had a 800x600 monitor. I was so traumatized by all the bullshit my 640x480 interlaced monitor caused me, I always had the highest mainstream res monitor forever after.
There. In the game section. This wasnt difficult to find at all if you looked in the places this things show up (Chinese forums or japanese p2p)
Any doujin that would have been created by now would the lost to the sands of time.
Hell the most recent doujin I could see from a quick glance at sad panda was from C86 which was in summer of 2014.
and it was of Ruri
Well fuck there it is. Now I can replace SRW W's continuation after PoD with The mission now.
The blank of 3 years
Can't remember the reason but I think the outfit was whatever's available at the factory. Plus I don't know if Sega would let nipples be shown on their Saturn.
What happened to her is completely different depending on which story you trigger; that's just one of them
Blank of 3 years has a bunch of completely different alternate stories; even the player-character's gender changes depending on which one you end up in.

SO FUCKING GOOD
mfw there used to be a story written by some faggot on fanfiction.net that offered a fantastic closure to where Prince of Darkness leaves off. Only now, it's been forever lost to time after ff.net underwent a purge during their great migration.
>ff.net underwent a purge during their great migration
It wasn't on purpose. Their site back in the day, the DB specifically that hosted all the content, wasn't able to scale with the rapid pace the internet was evolving at. So they proposed an upgrade and then undertook it. Unfortunately, they fucked up the migration and the DB in question shit the bed. So they recovered a backup to the new site. But as a result, hundreds of thousands of stories across all fandoms and genres were lost to the void. One of which, happens to be the closure story to Prince of Darkness of this thread's anime.
The migration happened like 8 years ago. The last major backup done of ff.net was on October 2012. The entire site backed up is 830GB. Many other people have also attempted to archive the site, and have confirmed that the first million or so stories have been completely wiped out from ff.net. The story IDs exist, but the stories themselves do not. So, >>153388978 this number is actually off by nearly a magnitude order. Instead of a hundred thousand+, it's a million+ stories lost.
>Many other people have also attempted to archive the site,
Where? I've been after a specific story for fucking years now that I read around 2008. I've tried to email the person who uploaded it but in the two years since I sent the message I never heard back.
This one is 14gigs (all plain text backup). The other one, found here: https://archive.org/details/fanfictiondotnet_repack is a 115gigs (for if you want to setup your own DB, setup the values, do the whole shebang and search it that way). Take your pic.
>ping someone on fanfiction.net
Nig, once people leave behind that site; they're gone for good.
In fact, I should do the same. But I'm not a fitfag yet drowning in pussy. So rip.
Yeah I've realized that. It made me very sad. The author deleted every story they ever uploaded. I'm grabbing the site archive from 2012 on archive.org and hoping it's still in there.
>mfw Yurika won hard.
She still won though, that's all that matters
Yeah, nowadays we dont even see proper ships sailing, like, the last one was in Cross Ange lel.
>I'd say its more cruel than grimdark
>mfw they put prince of darkness in the new super robot wars coming out
>prince of darkness yurika is confirmed as a unit
It's part of the 90s SRW canon, the only other mainstays from the 90s that are not Gundam are Getter Robo Armageddon and Evangelion (now using the rebuilds). You need something 90s to get that generation of Otaku to buy it.
The best part of her being a protagonist, besides Akito, is that she's appearance and personality is pure genki girl in a mature body. Except, that, she's not only smart, but she's sly as fuck too.
It's really unfortunate that there aren't more anime, nowadays, that have characters like her. That said though, she trolled the fuck out of poor Jun. But then again, Jun was an ass kissing nice guy. He didn't stand a god damned chance.
Some of the best naruto and bleach stories during the prime years of the mangas when the stories hadn't gone to complete and utter shit, were in these purges.
