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 don't know why, the bots that FMAB fans use for Kaguya's downvoting are now masquerading as Gundam fans. For example, one was made as a new anime hater and gave Orphans a few 1s.

Given the focus on the second female character and who will be the show's writer, I have a vague feeling that the new Gundam will be a lot like Princess Principal and very salty about the characters' fathers.
RobertBobert Jun 24, 4:19 PM
I had conflicting thoughts about the orphans, which seemed too pessimistic-edgy to me, so I don't know what to expect from this show.
RobertBobert Jun 24, 4:14 PM
Are you hyped for the new Gundam?
Senden Apr 24, 1:21 PM
yes :)

Okouchi has always amazed me that he can write both a real original masterpiece and a rather mediocre commercial show.
RobertBobert Mar 31, 6:13 PM
Speaking of Valvrave, can you explain why this show gets so much salt? I'm interested in the works of the screenwriter who made this, but some of my friends complained that it had too grotesque a plot.
RobertBobert Mar 31, 1:33 PM
I don't have a problem with shows like this when it's a thing in itself. Especially considering that Cross-Ange later turned into Symphogear. But I would not really like to see something like this in Gundam.
RobertBobert Mar 30, 2:49 PM
So, do you think there's a good chance that Sunrise won't turn this into pointless all-female fanservice?
RobertBobert Mar 30, 2:07 AM
By the way, returning to our discussion about games. Have you noticed how the new Gundam's MC looks very similar to the protagonist of that all-female gundam game? Will it be a direct sequel?
RobertBobert Mar 27, 8:43 AM
I've been trying to watch Orphans and SEED for a long time, but every time I either don't have the time or the mood.
RobertBobert Mar 26, 2:53 PM
As it turns out, you know so many franchises that I'm interested in that I don't even know where to start, lol.
RobertBobert Mar 23, 2:58 PM
Well, as far as I can see, studios like to invite BL artists for all-male shows and vice versa.
RobertBobert Mar 22, 4:52 PM
I see. I heard that later Gundam were very fujoshi-friendly (starting from canonical gays in 00 and ending with the idea of ​​same-sex marriage in Orphans), so I was worried that there would be too much fanservice in such a game.
RobertBobert Mar 22, 3:53 AM
I just wanted to ask if you have heard of the new all-female Gundam game. Is this some kind of yuri bait or just the traditional nakama power for the series?
