I'd encourage you to definitely give it a rewatch at some point for sure. It basically takes the anti-capitalist sentiments of Oshii's work and dials it up to 11 in the most bombastic, most Tomino way possible. Also, the animation style and character designs are stellar, and, coincidentally, it's the guy who did the designs for the Bleach anime, which I just started recently.

Now I can say I've loved every Tomino show from Victory onward, especially the post-Brain Powerd stuff—all masterpieces. I think he fumbled a bit with the New Translation films, but they're still Zeta at their core, so in hindsight, they're not horrible.

Ah, ok, lol. Yeah, I think it would've been one of his best works if it were, say, even 6 episodes longer, just to flesh out this "japanified" version of Byston Well a little more. And yeah, I did notice Yuu Shimamura in the voice credits and, going by her other roles, the character fits her perfectly. Interestingly enough, I noticed another cool, definitely unintended aspect of the casting. Koyama Rikiya plays Sakomizu who, at least from what I gleaned, mirrors Asap, as this reflection of the past, nationalistic, prideful Japan, against the western-influenced, half-Japanese half-American, blonde-haired, blue-eyed Asap. Interestingly, in my favourite anime, Eureka Seven, Koyama Rikiya plays the monk, Norb, but, when we see his back story—when he's a kid—he's voiced by Fukuyama Jun, who voices Asap. A pretty cool, definitely unintended connection.

I'm actually surprised I enjoyed Rean more than both the original Dunbine and Garzey. Wherever I look, I haven't found much positive about Rean, unless it's pure ironic enjoyment. Some even say it's "worse" than Garzey. Rean, to me, is probably the most politically-minded I've ever seen Tomino; he takes a ton of ideas from Oshii and Ito Kazunori. It could just be me reading into things, but episode 5 literally starts with the giant, Yamato-inspired, isekai battle ship emerging from the water and destroying the Yokohama bridge—the same bridge that was blown up at the start of Patlabor 2 for the purpose of igniting Tsuge's "war," and, coincidentally, that's almost exactly what happens in Rean during the insane climax of episodes 5 and 6. Rean even has great callbacks to Tomino's own catalogue, especially with the use of the moonlight butterfly to, in this case, protect, instead of destroy.

Yo, I finished Dunbine, Garzey and Wings of Rean recently, and after doing some looking around online, I seem to be in the minority in thinking that Rean was actually quite good, lol. Seeing as you gave it a 5, what're your thoughts on it?
MakkusuUnfilwin Jan 8, 6:09 PM
Lol, don't worry. I forgot to respond, so sorry for my late response. Well, at least now we know for sure that G-Witch is going full Ookouchi, what with the shocking (but somehow not unexpected) ending of episode 12. Very excited to see where cour 2 goes. Also, wow, the production was legitimately amazing for the last couple of episodes.
MakkusuUnfilwin Dec 14, 2022 7:10 PM
Yo, Feez, what are your thoughts on Witch from Mercury so far? I'm really enjoying it, especially with the direction it's taken recently. The whole "building and financing a company" idea is really quite interesting, particularly with how seriously the show treats the venture. It feels in line with something Ookouchi would've done in Valvrave.

Bandai & Sunrise was quite rough with Tomino in the 80s.

Hello 👋

While searching up the production for ∀ Gundam, your blog was on the 1st page of Google xD

Like @/Retro_Waifu mentioned, I accidentally stumbled upon your MAL page.

With that out of the way: Tomino did a excellent job with Turn A

I used to have a Twitter account, but I stopped using it! I've seen yours, but I try not to use a lot of social media these days unless I'm looking up information on things.
UnluckyCat13 Mar 23, 2022 10:21 AM
I saw you finished the Turn A manga translation. That was lightning fast. Great work! Thank you to you and everyone else who worked on it. <3

Hi Feez, I want to thank you for bringing the Turn A Gundam manga, I'm extremely grateful, I'm consuming this anime a lot and I want to see all the media too. I manage a page about Gundam also called Lava Jato Newtype on facebook.
UnluckyCat13 Dec 30, 2021 1:37 PM
I accidentally ended up on your twitter account via a google search, and once again found your content, in this case an old translation of Tomino's book featuring Turn A stuff. Thank you for providing the translations.
UnluckyCat13 Nov 25, 2021 9:24 PM
I agree, G-reco has a lot of Turn A to it. <3
UnluckyCat13 Nov 22, 2021 7:48 PM
I saw your Turn A blog, it's great and I've shared it with some friends. Sadly those friends don't have as positive opinions of G-reco but I feel like they'll warm up to it eventually in this world where even ZZ is considered a masterpiece by some.
MakkusuUnfilwin Nov 21, 2021 2:15 AM
Cool favourites; it's pretty rare to see G-Reco bros here on Mal. And I wanted to ask, is Dunbine worth the watch?

I've read your blog several times on turn a. Funny coincidence that i stumbled across your profile on mal by sheer happenstance. lol.
It’s time to ditch the text file.
