Definitely agree, I'm definitely sticking with Cross Ange this season. Even though I'm a mecha fan I haven't really enjoyed a Gundam series since Wing, so I think I should just give up the universe as not for me.
cross ange > all, no contest

It's honestly a pretty crummy series. I doubt I'll watch it past this week's episode.


While you're welcome to your own opinion, I just don''t get this. Why? Elaborate a little. It's the beauty of messages boards; you're not given a word limit like Twitter/FB. What wrong with it?

The show has interesting ideas to work with, however, its doing very little (good) with it. We don't know much about the Reguild Century; such as the key countries/players and such, the dialogue is often awkward and filled with exposition, and it's difficult watching something where you have to question every decision a character makes.

As JizzyHitler has said, I think ZZ (for all the hate it gets) had a better start than this. But I'm still hoping that Tomino will pull through.
they are doing a pretty poor job explaining its terms so far, they have just been throwing them around without much context, the problem is the terms have been explained its just they were done in really poorly done ways usually mixed in with a bunch of meaningless dialogue that feels like it exsists to eat up the script, episode 4 has the best example of this which was when barril was being asked questions by the pirate captain and the conversation bordered on nonsensical keywords similarly to how captain earth became but to a lesser extent. I dont have much faith in these getting a better explanation later on because tomino has always had a big problem in his use of show created vocabulary, minovsky particals and newtypes from 079 are a perfect example of this

aside from the scene i said above, episode 4 did show a brighter future for this show, but amazingly of all things argevellon is shaping up to be the better war story at the moment cause its really been getting its shit together as of recent

I definitely agree the drip-feeding of setting info is annoying as hell. This really isn't something we should be guessing at. Leave us to theorise about plots, agendas and character goals.
Wilfully obfuscating common terms and information about the setting, which everyone within it already knows, is nothing but a cheap attempt at confounding the viewer. It's basically what NGE was all about.
The sooner we get the mundane information sorted out the sooner we can move on to the actually interesting stuff.

Cross Ange sounded like utter horseshit though, and the whole LOL RAPE thing just makes it seem even more pathetic, trying to get attention with cheap shock value. So what is good about it? I sort of doubt the battles can beat the ones in the Gundam shows.

I sat through of ALL of ZZ(2nd half actually has its moments), the first 3 episodes og
G reco are definetly way worse than the first 3 episodes of ZZ and by defaults every gundam start, but ep 4 finally had a solid execution at least which took ZZ 18 god damn episodes to do

if this is better than age then i am terrified of when i actually get around to watching it

It's not a matter of spoon feeding, it's a matter of just there's things we know and things we don't know and if it's important to the story they'll get around to it when the time is right. Super bloody simple. The fact that people insist on faulting a show for their own inability to comprehend basic storytelling and to follow a developing narrative that's not just shrouded in some hype bubble where people already know the source material and are just waiting to see their favorite scene animated anymore just shows what a waste of time all of this is on the current anime audience. It's a pretty damn sorry sight the way people are clearly just completely incapable of approaching a show like this anymore where everything doesn't come pre-packaged and hype-marketed like a Fate/Stay Night or Aldnoah.Zero. Like it's not following otakudoms overused cultural memes and plug-ins as I call them and actually requires an understanding and approach beyond just the basics of self-insert leads, harems, quasi-deepish narratives that really don't consider anything of relevance to reality at the bottom line but rather provide a sense of base level comfort and familiarity, and snappy memetic sounding in-joke dialogue so clearly it must be terrible in the areas of characters, dialogue, themes (I don't even think people pay attention to themes at all anymore really) and directing right?


Well you basically said what I was saying, just in a more elaborate way. I tend to agree with what you're saying, but I still think your disdain towards certain directors is unwarranted.


My favorite Gundams are primarily the older ones (Tomino Era) and I rarely read manga (no "prepackaging" or "prehype"), so your rant was useless. Anyhow, Reco could be doing much better in the execution department than what it has thus far.

My favorite Gundams are the UC timeline, like pretty much everyone else. In the UC timeline, the only one's I don't like are ZZ and G-Saviour (whether you want to admit it or not, G-Saviour sadly IS UC canon). As a lot of Gundam fans tend to agree on, Turn-A (not really UC but still), ) 08th MS Team, and Unicorn are some of the better ones.

Lot of really stupid fake sounding opinions in this thread. Then again MAL. I love how people continue to be completely incapable of just expressing a bloody opinion without resorting to over the top hyperbole like they think it makes their opinion that much stronger and more important somehow.

I think your focus is off.


Heh, I should have probably not been so hyperbolic, though I do personally feel that it will be my favorite of the decade. Maybe it's just where I'm on a Tomino kick at the moment. Maybe it's because I'm watching the final episodes of Victory and pretty much anything else he's done is much better in comparison. Either way, I'm just not seeing the flaws that others are seeing with the show.

I've been seeing criticism that it's got a very slow start, but compared to other popular shows, it's been rather fast paced. Terraformars, F/SN UBW, and Attack on Titan all took (or are taking) some time to get to the actual plot of their respective stories. Heck, I've never seen a Gundam TV series (ZZ doesn't count) where everything is laid out before us and we have instant mobile suit warfare. So I don't get the slow start thing.

Kaioshin_Sama said:
I honestly think and am largely convinced that after years and seasons upon seasons of exposure to typical late night anime and it's emphasis on otaku culture that the lions share of todays anime fandom that you see on sites like Crunchyroll and MAL just can no longer comprehend or appreciate a series that doesn't come in some pre-packaged VN/LN style of format, content, writing and aesthetics and just have no idea what to make of one if it happens to come along if they even bother to watch them at all. I think that's why it's not even on Crunchyroll cause there's just no way, like absolutely no way that sites crowd is going to have any idea what to think when watching it. It's also unpretentious so people can't invoke the hipster angle with it either so it's just kind of DOA in North America outside of old school fans for sure.


Very much agreed. The sad fact of the matter is that North American anime fandom is populated by alot more youngsters than when I first started in. Many of these folks either just don't have the maturity or attention span for older mech series, let alone a new mech show pretending to be old.

I'm not trying to broad brush or be hyperbolic with that assertion. Since the old forum I used to go to closed down, I've had trouble trying to find an anime site I actually fit in at. Sadly, most of the NA/ English language sites are just to full of folks who feel like they're ten-fifteen years younger than me. When your young and an newcomer, you just don't have the perspective to actually say something was crap or a masterpiece. There were anime that I thought sucked back when I first started seriously watching, and a decade+ later I revisited the show realizing that I was wrong. That's not to say kids shouldn't be able to share their opinions. I just find it ridiculous that I go around the net seeing folks with Naruto, Attack on Titan, and Sword Art Online avatars criticizing this show.

Character designs are off-putting as well,because it makes the series seems that the main appeal of it is sexual.

I find this to be an unfair and shallow comparison when ZZ is a direct sequel to Zeta happening just shortly after the gryps conflict so you already know what has happened and the situation was already built for you in Zeta whereas G-reco is almost like a completely new universe, but the series has a lot more to go through especially with how things have changed, and why they have changed, and personally this series is doing a much better job at giving off info and it's situation than 00 where they both kind of have this same pattern of explaining bits by bits of the key countries/players (which is why I brought up 00 since 00 has a very complicated political problem with many different countries) but 00 did it in such an extremely and painfully boring way that I think 00 is literally the most boring Gundam ever.

On topic: MAL ratings mean nothing at the best of times, so what the fuck do you expect 4 episodes in?

Slightly less on-topic: As was the case when I watched Zeta, I have no idea why anybody does any of the things they do. Although, episode 4 really took a turn for the worse by tossing in jargon and themes without context or explanation. Maybe it'll make sense by the time the whole thing is over, but it sure doesn't right now.

Oh well, I'm just watching it because I like the aesthetic, minus some of the mechanical designs.

No, it's just a mecha series on MAL without a Gen Urobuchi or the like involved. Once you start taking MAL rankings even remotely seriously you've already lost.


Are you stiill bitter about that?

id complain but i feel like im doing the exact same shit with my tomino ramblings, which gives off the false impression that i dislike his shows cause i legitimately like most of them, im getting off topic here uhhh TOMINO there we go.

i generally agree with what you said fst but i disagree about episode 4, well to an extent, the random jargon is a legitiment and major issue and whats worse is they were explained, but they were done very poorly to the point where its very vague and easy to miss which falsely makes the series feel more complex than it actually is, its masking a flaw as a cry to intricacy, though what i mean with ep 4 is that despite that issue it was a much more consistent and less spasticly paced episode that showed a much better floor map of where this show would be going than the first 3 episodes failed to do, I generally found it better directed and less like a cluster of one fast paced event after another

translation, this show has the worst start of the franchise that iv seen(yet to see turn A - age to know if any are worse) but i think there is a legitiment chance this can improve, but hypothetically if this doesnt, this will be much worse than ZZ, and believe me i can be a forgiving person i like victory gundam for fucks sakes and that has so many issues so i think i can find it in me to forgive this show if it can pull things off later on

Well, let's see ...

-Mecha design is lousy, the G constantly looks surprised at something (probably that a show this bad got greenlit), and the tools they were trying to fight with in the first episode are ludicrous. Don't get me started on the mini-walkers that the kids get around on.
-We get no character motivations for any of the irrational things the characters do, including jumping into a Mobile Suit and allowing their prisoner to fly them right into captivity with their enemy, or for that matter the MC falling in love with Pirate Princess at first sight.
-Said characters are bland and uninteresting, or bland and annoying (Ms Monday as a wonderful example of the latter).
-The tone seems completely off and more directed towards kids than you'd expect from a story that seems to be ready to launch into political allegory at any moment, and which has a character who has to come to terms with killing people in battle.

And worst of all, it's a completely bland and uninteresting show in a season full of shows that I actually get excited about (Cross Ange, Fate, Vanadis, so many others). I'm watching more than 20 shows this season; I simply don't have time for this drek.

That is the biggest nonsequitor I've ever heard in a MAL forum. You do realize this is a thread about how much Recognista sucks, not Parasyte, right? Speaking of, Parasyte is a billion times better than this absolute garbage.

G isn't even the best mecha show this season. Cross Ange beats it on all parameters (yes, including the battles. Hell, ESPECIALLY the battles. Even the battles in Recog don't get me excited about this shitty show).

if people dont have the right to bitch about something while its airing then that goes the same for anyone who claims to like it or think its meh or be apathetic or have any sort of opinion what so ever, people are judging all that was given to them and whether that turns into a positive or negative opinion based off these 4/5 episodes is completely justified, if they keep watching then those opinions will change depending on the shows quality improving or degrading or staying consistent or whatever

You all seem to somehow miss the fact that english mecha fandom is full of "elitists" retards from 4chan, who bash everything that Sunrise produces just for the sake of it.
When show is simulcasted on crunchyroll or has Urobuchi in staff, more "normal" people get interested and then they generally give higher rates.
With most mecha-series you need to add "+1" to get the score you can compare with other series...

Even so, I really don't get how the fuck is this show rated lower than Captain Earth O_o

im so terrified of actually starting age, i wanna be able to say ive seen every gundam but age (and seed destiny) are really putting me off from that. Which sucks even more as i really love the idea of the kids of the previous protagonist becoming the main character for the next act. I kind of hope someone else tries that concept out with more success.

Captain Earth has more tits. And it finished airing, which usually causes a slight shift in score. But mainly the former.

So guys, for you who have watched until episode 8, what's ur opinion?
I'm currently watching until ep 4, and it's pretty bad imo. There are annoying characters and bad dialogues.

Does it get better afterwards, or the rating is justified?

Pretty much. I've stopped taking anything anyone says about anime online seriously a long time ago even if other people still seem to because....well I really don't know why they do, they just do. If people say it's bad they'll believe it cause what else does it have for people to latch onto really that isn't right in front of their face. There's no Urobuchi or Sawano or anything like that that'll immediately grab peoples attention and automatically qualify a show for good reviews, it's not on Crunchyroll either so like...yeah not much of a chance really for this one.

It's all just kind of one big joke to me though really and just kind of a who cares affair at this point. Like this fanbase is so far up it's own ass and has such nonsensical criteria for (pre)judging shows it literally just doesn't even matter anymore, people will come to the conclusions that want to and I'll come to my own and rarely will they overlap. Some people said the show makes no sense like they do for all Sunrise mecha, it caught on and now it's the "common truth" and people will believe it cause it's easier than coming to ones own conclusion and this is the anime fanbase we're talking about. Just toss them a light novel show or something big loud and pointless (without robots that is) instead and that'll keep people occupied instead.

Cross Ange sounded like utter horseshit though, and the whole LOL RAPE thing just makes it seem even more pathetic, trying to get attention with cheap shock value. So what is good about it? I sort of doubt the battles can beat the ones in the Gundam shows.

It is not good. The rating is actually higher than I would give it honestly.

If you separate it and compare it to just other Gundam, it's extremely hard to watch. I still don't know why I keep waiting to see if this gets better. I should just drop it. If you compare it to the genre(s) of it's kind, it's not good.

Bottom line it's not good. I don't get it. It lacks focus. There are a handful of other problems that, for me, are big hits to a show in general. It has nothing to do with it not being "popular" or whatever comments casuals or elitists dish out. At this point (ep 11), it's not entertaining. I would think most Gundam fans are just pulling through on this one while the minority are legitimately enjoying it for whatever their reasons are.

Well, looks like the only audience that matters to Tomino and the producers, the Japanese like it.

From a western perspective, is this only for Gundam fans? In my opinion, yes, even though it set far into the future of UC with a disconnected story, they do mention elements significant in UC such as Minovsky particles. As Gundam fan, yes you should watch the UC series first before moving to G-Reco. Watching UC series also helps to get close with Tomino's story telling especially how retro this show is.

It's pretty bad. I fall asleep when I try to watch it. Something like Aldnoah.Zero is fair bit better even though it isn't legit Gundam or anything.

Well, while I quite enjoy this show (not as much as Gundam 0079 or Zeta which I am watching now), I must admit that the way Tomino is directing G Reco is not for normal people. As Primus2x said, story telling is specifing, and the world is built slow (some people say its similar to Turn A, but I can't relate... yet).

Choosing G Reco as an entry point for Gundam franchise is very bad choice.

While I have a hard time understanding....well anything, I do think the show has a certain charm to it and there's a lot of potential. I plan to finish it at least

there are plenty of people who watched alot of gundam that dont like this, the show simply isnt resonating with alot of people.

Aside from animation, I don't think it's looking like it'll get much better. As of now it's pretty much just a poorly directed, watered down Turn-A.

SEED and 00 excuse is getting old to sling around now. SEED is almost 13 years old now and could almost be considered an "Old School" series now. Not as classic as the originals mind you. Still for a show to be over a decade old and still a hot topic of discussion the show has its merits

I don't have SEED, 00, or many Gundams on my list, dueto not watching them recently, and Destiny has a 6 rating. I can't say I like this show. The characters are just bad, I haven't even bothered to remember any names aside from Bell (an easy nickname) and Aida (being one letter away from Aina of 08th MS Team).

Also, the animation hasn't been that great either, aside from the rainbow particle effects Turn-A had better animation than this.

yeah after starting turn A a little while back ive kind of seen this as well, everything thats makes me love turn A thus far is done horrible wrong in this serie. I dont want to be the asshole that says this but tomino is really up there in age and this will very likley be his final series, as much as i bitch about him he does have alot of merits and has made some damn good shows, i just hate that he may be ending this long legacy on such a dud note.

Are you kidding? I've recently watched a couple of episodes from Turn A and the visuals and animation are pretty bad apart from a few select shots. I think the animation in G Reco is amazing, despite several shots looking (deliberately) old school. People really need to start seeing what "good animation" is, even if you don't like the visual style.

I've re-watched the show through episode 14, and I have a better understanding of the plot, thank gosh. However to the point of animation, there are some shots that look good like Bell dropping the water ball drowning Mask's machine in the air; and episode 10 which was the episode Tetsuo Araki directed looked like solid animation. Then you have spots like the climax of the battle in episode 6. That battle was used as the conclusion shots of OP 1, however in the last bits of the fight proper it didn't show how Bell got from ABOVE his enemy to ramming his shield in to jam the transformation.

OP2 shows they are remastering past clips, there was a clip of Aida from episode 4 in the OP that looked MUCH MORE detailed than the episode proper. I hope that is a sign for the shows Blu-rays. As far as animation style goes I have no problem with E7 or Turn A-ish style because I love both of those shows. I just want consistency in my animation, and this show is definitly not using Sunrise's general animation style that you can see in most of its shows.

The story has gotten worse. You're better off waiting until it's finished and then watching it all in one shot while drunk. Maybe then it'll flow better and make better sense.

Turn A looks really good especially for a 50 episode show, Just the way the mechs move looks way more realistic and fluid than the gundma before save OVA's. Unless it downgrades later on turn A is one of the bets looking gundams and even then if the animation does drop the art style still looks stand out.

The second half of A.Z has been garbage. The first half of A.Z was average at best. The OST is the thing that stands out best in that series. I bet if big names were not behind this series it would have flopped big time.

I gave this show 5/10 so far not as good as Tomino's Zeta heck even Victory and ZZ is better than whatever this is at least I understood what was going on in these series.

Apparently MAL users don't like Robot unless it is TTGL

Moreover, Tomino's style is not audience-friendly at all
It is so dense. Every single image has so many things going on.
