"Frankly, I didn't think it would be this horrible. Fundamentally, people don't respond to stories made with cold logic. If the logic is overpowering, it won't be a story you can be emotionally attached to. That's all. After Episode 19, we improved so it became a little easier to watch, but gosh, it was too late. With a terrifying amount of effort, we managed to wrap everything up by Episode 26.

Tomino also explains that he was motivated by a desire to keep his staff, many of whom are in their 40s and 50s, working for another decade. He expresses frustration that the current anime industry didn't properly provide them with an outlet for their talents. "Can't we make better use of their technique and talent?... Producers and investors want to take those measures. Anime can't just be iyashi-kei ["healing" style] and pretty girls." But when asked if Gundam Reconguista would change the situation, Tomino said no, "because [it] wasn't popular."

Tomino acknowledges that anime is supposed to be "happier" than what he produced, but claimed he couldn't bring himself to make something like that. "I fundamentally have frustration with these types of works, and I realize that I spewed it out too much." He predicts that in 50 years, he will be vindicated, and admits that "personally, I quite like it." But Tomino was careful to say, "Of course, anime is also entertainment, and now the people who sell a million copies are the winners and there's no future for anyone beneath that. That means if something doesn't sell, you can't brag about it."

Gundam G is okay, but yeah there's a lot of story wtf problems that didn't get explained till the end. Even then there's still tons of questions need to ask and why it happened etc.

I really hope this won't be his last Gundam. I enjoyed his older works and i do hope he makes more Gundam or even a separate new IP like Overman King Gainer, but less happiness and more death XD

At least the girls looks happy as hell in this show.

So wait..........If according to the fans, G-Reco is perfect, and only UrobutcherFags and Plebs who have'nt watched enough UC would say otherwise. So if Tomino is admitting faults to the series....................could that Tomino is an UrobutcherFag

I didn't think it was that bad, but it was boring. Very boring. This is coming from someone that loved Turn A Gundam. Something about Gundam Rec never clicked with me. It wasn't just because the plot was confusing and all over. I think the characters were just dull. The one thing I did enjoy was the color palette used for this anime. It was different from what we normally see. Also, the fact that mobile suits have toilet seats answers a whole lot of questions. So there's that.

That just means this show was that self aware

If by fans you mean reverse trolls than sure. Also Tomino admitting that his show has faults doesn't is not the same that people who hate it are right in their accusations or that he's saying that the show is shit. He's critical of all his works from admitting that the design choices to Turn A was a mistake to his frequent back and forth dislike of everything in Victory what you see here is his take on G-Reco. So sadly those people who didn't get it (you) are still dumb.

I too hope he makes another series, he amde G-reco in a pretty terrible mindset where he was completely obsessed with making political commentary over the poor japanese relief efforts during the 2011 tsunami as well about the reliance on nuclear energy, yeah political commentary can make a good basis for a story but the way he went about it was so full of malicious intent that the story came second to his insults towards the government and wound up making the entire series get lost in the bizarre limbo whenever it tried to make its point across, its what caused that huge discconect where bellri would scream at some adult for being a child playng with harmful weapons only for him to literally be dicking around in a destructive mobile suit and getting people killed by his actions left and right but never taking responsibility for it

If tomino takes a step back and tries to put story and entertainment first over some hate filled message then i believe his next show would be perfectly fine, he even seems to admit this in that interview. also for his next series please let those animators do even more stuff, G-reco was a fucking mess story wise but the art department it was a work of passion and love and it really looked outstanding at points it'd be a shame to let those animators go to waste

nice job dancing aroudn the points, your entire aggression over this series is completely hypocritical and immature and has just flung back in your face whether you want to admit or not.....and your not

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

No, I'm referring to the "this show is perfect and those who dislike it just do'nt understand it/have'nt watched enough UC/Gundam" type. Basically..............You guys

Also, as stated before, there's nothing I "do'nt get". That's no more than a side-effect of the above views that I mentioned

Same here, as much as I'm not a fan of this series, I do hope this is'nt the last we see of the guy

Tomino has done more than just Gundam, and you know what? All his shows have the same exact dialogue style and writing. Dunbine, L-Gaim, Brain Powered, Xabungle, Ideon etc...

The show is not perfect, but then, no shows are.
