Hello, I really enjoyed reading your Great Mazinger review and how you compared both series in terms of its flaws and differences. You pretty much explained everything that I wanted to know. I am actually in the process of watching "great mazinger" right now and i just feel like there are just elements of it missing that i appreciated from the original mazinger, one of those obvously bieng the chemistry and characterization of the 3 main leads of saiyaka, kouji and boss. I also want to mention that I am not to fond of the villians in this series. Like you said most of them are kind of carbon copys of their selfs and achieving the same goals so it ends up being a bit repetitive more so because there is no diversity there. It would have been interesting if these characters were a little more distinct and had their own unique persona. But i don't expect as much in a early 70's classic.

Though speaking in terms of early to mid 70's i still think nothing beats Gatchaman. That was one of my favorites for sure and I think it was far ahead of its time. I like to compare it to what i am watching now with mazinger because they aired roughly during the same time. With Gatchaman, you can tell there is far more depth to its characters, the world has larger set pieces and locations that exist, better action, improved backstories and even a more overarching narative of sorts including the amazing epic finales of all three series. Not to mention the awesome villian that in my opinion even beats all the villians showns in mazinger so far. In any case I am going to be watching most of the 70's stuff but I am kind of doing it in order. So as of now im in the mid 70's I can't wait till i get to the Tadao Nagahoma romance series because I heard those are really good. One other series I am coming up to soon though that takes place in the same verse as mazinger is Grendiser. Have you seen this show? How does this one stack up to Mazinger and Great mazinger?

SSJLuffy Jul 26, 2020 8:48 AM

Sekiro might be better than Bloodborne. It's the hardest and most visceral game yet born from Demon's.

lmao, that kind of rings a bell. Maybe all that dark Tomino was fueling you too...

I think I've never seen Grave of the Fireflies yet or maybe just parts of it at a friends at some point... because everything I've heard over the years makes it seem like an unforgettable movie. Sure sounds depressing as hell though, so I'll really have to be in the mood for it if I get around to it someday.

Yeah it was a little weird when they finally settled on this composer and stopped changing it up. All around he's seems pretty consistent at least, but peaked early. More rotating composers could have been interesting. The first two parts have totally different vibes because of it. Somehow that wack dubstep electro stuff in part 2 worked and was awesome. lol

Yep, I liked their Enslaved for the story/world, but it literally had like 3 combos from what I remember. I was just curious... since I refuse to touch DmC as well. In all the videos I've seen, you can apparently take damage and the combo meter does NOT drop down... which is like the polar opposite of what DMC is all about. You have to play flawlessly and you the player level up the more you play. I'm up to mission 13/20 in DMC5 and they truly made this for the fans, it's incredible with some throwbacks and I'm actually really getting into the story/characters haha. I am missing the more RE/Souls-esque castles of 1, 3, and 4 a bit, this one is a little more linear with the urban environments like in DMC2 or the hell-like gory areas. But yeah the combat and enemy/boss variety in this one is godly. I think I accidentally spoiled myself on the final boss but it just made me smile and will blow my pants off when I get to it myself.

I actually think RE2R's combat is more comparable to the classic games and REmake. The zombies are super bullet sponges and can be very dangerous in those tight corridors. Although they took the over the shoulder perspective from later games, the combat is honestly quite different and dialed back from RE4+. They made zombies dangerous again. They can do super crazy lunges and "bite" you like in the classics, though you can use knives or grenades again as defense items like in REmake. The Lickers were incredible, Mr X integrated amazingly well, the G fights and designs were incredible, Leon's tone and Ada both handled flawlessly, all the little changes were nice while it still felt supremely faithful. Capcom now have two of the best remakes in the business heh.

I guess that's what my friend was getting at too... I can see it, but like you said the JoJo series is just so overly melodramatic I guess it just cracks me up more than anything haha. Not like I'm not taking it seriously either, it's just so fun and over the top. The double KO and ghost thing in part 3 was probably the most emotional I ever got in all of it so far, but yeah the music was key there too. I keep assuming the body count in part 5 is going to rack up soon. lol, I'm glad the music in part 5 leveled up again, but it still seems like this composer maybe peaked early on with part 3's score. I wonder if someone else was involved or something.

Exactly haha... oh I know who's buying them, Ollie Barder. Have you ever stumbled upon this guy? lol, at first I was "impressed" with him having obscure nerdy classic mecha articles on Forbes and stuff, but I guess Forbes is kind of open to public submission or something. Either way this guy writes a lot and tweets a bunch of cool stuff, he seems like a middle aged one of us haha.

DMC5 awaits its time. Did you ever play DmC? lol, I never touched it.
Echelon Mar 10, 2019 6:45 PM
Yeah I was a little harsh on YYH along the way haha. In retrospect I think it stands out among some of the better shounens. It just took me forever to realize there's really only a few gems in the genre, even though I love the format and wish some were better than average. For me the trinity is DB/Z, HxH, and One Piece for their own reasons. I still don't know if I'd ever want to put JoJo in the mix though, it's so different and out there... but then again I guess HxH is too compared to the norm in ways. Saint Seiya and HnK are pretty high on my list too, though they're such a different mold it feels a little odd comparing them to the rest of the genre too. I finally watched Kenshin last year and the final arc is great, but it was stuff like that that made me realize I think I like YYH more than I realize. I'm sure the BD's will improve my experience too.

I still have no idea what to say about YYH composer... think he did Flame of Recca and maybe Fushigi Yuugi too. Some good stuff in there... some WTF, lol. It's definitely a style like nobody else, that's for sure.

Great song, for some reason this talk makes me think of a friend who finished up part 3 recently and was telling me how he was tearing up so much during the finale. I don't know if it's just me, but JoJo usually just cracks me the hell up even when characters die, lmao. It's just so over the top and ridiculous I think it's just fun and hilarious stuff. I can't fathom how JoJo 3 is one of the most emotional shows out there for someone.

I didn't even know the Votoms BD set was coming until recently myself, got that one ordered. Was also shocked just today to see this and look at the back of the box, 20 OVA episodes so I guess this is like literally almost everything. I wonder if a collection 2 would include Mellowlink.

I scored big on Dunbine ($25) and Patlabor Ultimate ($65) recently. Got Xabungle and I'll get Ideon next. Last year I was thinking I'm still more of a downloader and prefer watching anime on my PC, lol. But I've got some extra sending money lately so what the hell. I figure all these Gundam releases can be low priority since they'll probably be around for awhile. But stuff like Baldios, Ideon, Xabungle, etc could go OOP in a blink probably.

So dunno if you still game much thesedays, but when Capcom lets Capcom make games again they just drop 10's. I know you weren't that interested in RE2R, but I'll just say if a long time series veteran told me it's their new favorite, I wouldn't argue. I beat it 9 times for the platinum and other in game unlocks like the rocket launcher, minigun, etc haha. And now I'm about halfway into DMC5 and can't believe it, could be the best one. Sekiro's probably gonna blow my mind next but my top 3 this year is probably cemented already. Capcom dropping new classics in 2019 like nothing. DMC5's still Itsuno.

I still can't take my friends who worship Bayonetta seriously. lol, at least some of them are seeing the light with DMC5.
Echelon Mar 10, 2019 12:54 PM
Talk about wild to see part 5 was running when DB was wrapping up and Z was airing haha. Puts it in perspective. Think I always heard Araki was real picky about who could adapt it too? Or maybe not, the OVA license issue sounds believable. There's also that weird short movie that got screened but has been lost in the ether.

I could maybe see Pillarman types in like HnK or something haha. But yeah even from the beginning the series had some interesting ideas. Never realized the part 4 and YYH connection, though now I think I remember you mentioning that before, lmao damn. I'm excited to rewatch YYH eventually.

Can't believe Discotek released Baldios, crazy hidden gem. It's living up to my expectations for sure and seems damn good.
Echelon Mar 3, 2019 7:31 AM
I wasn't expecting the turtle to stick around after the train like it has, but I'm glad it did haha. What's extra amusing is seeing a similar idea in One Piece lately. But more importantly, there's a new character in HxH that seems like Togashi maybe pulled some ideas from "King Crimson" here. On that note, the new HxH is absolutely Godlike and the best since York Shin. It could even be the best, it's finally all Kurapika again and a mix of some of the best characters in with some new ones. The tone is almost outright horror levels in some spots and Togashi's really outdone himself, it's been incredible. Hope Madhouse tackles it again down the road for another adaptation.

But yeah JoJo 5 just feels like it gets closer and closer to being a 10 for me by the week, lol. Fugo sucks and the long haired dude I can't even name off the top of my head. But as a whole I like the whole group. Got some Saint Seiya vibes with the last two episodes at this temple island, lol. Seriously have no complaints, this part has been incredible and you're basically fortifying the fact that it stays the course and finishes with a strong second half too, so my suspicions of this awesome intensity keeping up seem to be true.

Part 5 and being away from 4 for awhile now is making me like that one a bit more in retrospect I think. I think it's cool that it's pretty different and self contained for the most part. I think it's that and I'm just fucking loving how JoJo's a giant saga at this point with how much has been animated and hopefully they keep going. I'd agree that stuff like part 1 or whatever ranks low... but that's in JoJo's terms heh, all around this franchise has been insanely consistent and it'll be a blast to revisit it all after awhile. It's no wonder this series has influenced probably just about everything in Japanese entertainment.
Echelon Feb 20, 2019 3:52 PM
I've been at the point where I wouldn't argue against this part being someones favorite. I don't know if the strong standout characters of parts 1-3 and Kira from 4 can be topped, but every little average enemy in this one is like Hol Horse level at least and they all look so unique now. I dig the whole main crew, the traveling aspect like part 3, and the battles are just fucking insane. It's been a thrill from start to now with no dips for me.
Echelon Feb 19, 2019 7:04 PM
The violence is off the charts this season heh. The train arc is my favorite part so far.
Echelon Jan 13, 2019 6:11 PM
Died laughing for like a minute straight.

I can't believe I found this as fast as I did, the original from 2010.
