Hello there

Hello there

As with most people, my first anime were Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh! and a faint memory of Digimon. Not having the luxury of cable, I only saw maybe one or two episodes of Dragon Ball and Gundam Wing on Toonami when I was at a friend's house.

By late 2007, the channel AnimeCentral became available in the United Kingdom and I watched first anime I could say I was really into; Full Metal Alchemist (2003), Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Cowboy Bebop and most of all; Planetes. Sadly, Anime Central, a British channel dedicated to anime, is now defunct.

Elsewhere, my entry into the mecha genre was through the Transformers franchise. Although I grew up in the eras of Beast Wars, Car Robots and Unicron Trilogy, I was more interested in G1 via the second-hand G1 toys and VHS tapes from my cousin. So probably, the first mecha anime I watched was Transformers: Micron Legend (aka Transformers Armada). I also had Neon Genesis Evangelion and Bubblegum Crisis on VHS but I don't really remember their plots (until rewatching them) as the tapes only included the first several episodes.

Later, I got hold of the hilariously bad English dubs of Transformers: The Headmasters on VHS, soon I decided to find the original Japanese versions of the Headmasters, and Unicron Trilogy online, from there I researched Takara Brave Series and started watching Brave Police J-Decker, realizing this was animated by a studio famous for mecha, I decided to watch their Magnum Opus; UC Gundam series, although I saw SEED previously on Anime Central, I didn't really care for it since I was much more hooked on Cowboy Bebop and Planetes; my first time watching SEED and comprehending it would be the HD Remaster that was streamed for free on Gundam Info. From Gundam, I got into Macross and the rest of the mecha and space opera genres of anime.

My first Macross series was Plus, I exclaimed in joy the first time I found Macross Plus Ultimate Edition (Manga UK's bundle of the OVA and movie together) at a bargain in CeX.

I expected the new female protagonist to also have some gay vibes after G-Witch, but for some reason all her female friends and comrades are attached to various male characters in the original UC.

So they didn't make any retcons or major changes through this game?
RobertBobert Dec 29, 2023 10:45 PM
I watched it, but it was so long ago that I have been wanting to watch it again for several years now.
RobertBobert Dec 29, 2023 5:23 AM
UC Engage? So, it basically follows canon, just adding a new POV thanks to the original girl?

So, I can watch Origin even before I rewatch the original 0079?
RobertBobert Dec 28, 2023 2:20 AM
I've been wanting to ask for a long time if Origin is a full-fledged prequel and if so, after which original UC show can I watch it?

Well, I was more surprised by his belief that a perfect workspace makes your creative work sterile and that he was skeptical about Bamko buying him an expensive office space.

The main news of the day is Tomino blaming Disney for disappointing fans and selling boring content. While the folks in the comments, who clearly don't follow the franchise, think that Tomino is completely in control of things and won't let the G-brand do anything pandering to the west. My God.

Well, if SxF wasn't a manga adaptation, I would easily believe it was written by him, lol. Strong inspiration from Western culture and literature, a villainous parent, a manipulative protoganist who wants to change the world and lowkey politics. The only thing missing is the homoerotic friendship between the protagonists and the silly but effective cliffhangers. But I think that somehow he is responsible for the PriPri vibes in the show.

Speaking of Ichiro, what do you think of the updates to the upcoming Grendizer remake? It seems like they decided to overload the entire universe of the show at once and people are already complaining about the character designs.

I haven't read the original manga, but the second season seems more action-packed and dark humor oriented than the first. Especially the fight between Yor and the killers on the liner, which was reminiscent of modern grotesque action films.

I don't know much about the manga, but I've heard that it's in the vein of modern dark shonens.
RobertBobert Dec 16, 2023 4:28 AM
But this is an adaptation of an already existing source. Or is there something he can screw up here?
RobertBobert Nov 23, 2023 4:57 PM
Do you also think this sounds suspiciously like a moral panic? This is the first time I've seen people ask someone to apologize for shows they like.

Hello! Have you heard anything about the recent spate of scandals where people on social media have been attacking anime fans for talking about "problematic" shows?
RobertBobert Nov 18, 2023 4:55 PM
So, is this a reboot of not only the show itself, but the franchise as a whole?
RobertBobert Nov 18, 2023 1:56 PM
From what I understand from one comment, this show may be an attempt to combine two shows at once, since it seems Sayaka was not in the original Grendizer.
RobertBobert Nov 17, 2023 7:25 PM
Hello! So, how do you like the first announcement of Grendizer’s staff and cast? From what I can see, people have mixed feelings, but I can't really judge it since I haven't watched the original show.
It’s time to ditch the text file.
