Your profile pic makes me think that you are screaming to the reader.

I feel you are pulling and pushing me from shoulders when reading a review of yours.

Your reviews are fun to read: decent critical analysis, awesome balance of serious and (subtly) mocking tones, and overall well-written while not being a wall of strange vocabulary and idioms that some other reviews to the detriment of their fortune tend toward and that very few can muster their leftover courage (the majority having evaporated in face of intimidation) to probe through.

Can you please help me?

Error: This is not your review and you cannot edit it.

I get this error when I tried to edit my review for Magic Kyun Renaissance.

I wrote the review myself though. It's not plagiarized in any way.
The review won't update with my edited corrections. So I took it down and resubmitted it.
Now I can't even make corrections to my own review. My review has been locked.

I reccon most people watch these shows anyways because of the historical impact and its influence, nothing more. I don't really think people actually seek out Getter robo because they think it might have a groundbreaking story. Its as you said, its mostly for those DIE hard enthuasists like my self that really even give a shit about these type of aged old relics because we are involved in the legacy of the mecha genre and want to see where it all started from and how it evolves through its respective franchise. But with early 70's i can still see things as quality during that era. For example give Yamato a solid 9/10 and it aired in the same year as getter robo but yet thats clearly a 5/10 to me, even going back further. Gatchamon was even earlier and it was a far superior super sentai series, more interesting villians, larger set piece locations, more interpersonal character background exploration, greater music, greater budget, etc.
link9us Dec 14, 2020 3:27 PM
Well I think in terms of the evolving medium, the difference between something airing in the 90's for example would not be that much different to today at least in terms of serialized story telling. Certainily modern writing has vastly improved over the years, something i can't say about animation styles and techniques but that is another whole topic. However when your taking about age in paticular. The 70's were literally a vehicle for super robo monster of the week themes and toy brand advertising. I mean Serializations were not even prominent at all during that era. So something as primitive as that, should deffinitly not dictate a low rating personally to you if your judging a classic show when comparing modern trends of today. If that makes sence. All of the points you make are pretty valid though.

Personally for me I like to factor in the decade at which the show took place or in the case of the early 70's and I generally draw comparisons to other series airing in that era, for exmaple how does Getter robo live up to something like Gatchaman, or Lupin or Mazinger. That being said, i didn't care for Getter robo that much when compared to these other 70's classics. Gatchamon is still the supreme ruler in the early 70's of super sentai/super robot shows I think. Until of course Tomino came on the scene and we started getting introduced to real mecha and more serialized story telling.

But the point I am trying to make is, its fine to talk about age and obvously what demographic the show is shooting for i think those are very immportant things to put in your review. There is ALOT of fans out there that certainly would't give the time a day to a typical generic monster of the week series with steriotypical vilians and one dimensional characters. Obvously if your not a fan at all of classical anime, then its fine but if you are. You should give credit where credit is due and kind of live in that time period. That being said, I don't think there was nothing wrong with your review because I personally felt kind of the same. I just now watched it and I gave it about a 5/10 rating but your reasons for these low ratings are deffinitly not because your comparing its story telling and writing to that of today's Modern serialized stories, are you? This is a question. I am not preaching that your doing this in your review I am just making you realize. Because if so, that is a bit missleading. The points you want to make are subject to "if its targeted towards super robot enthusiast, why is it a bad show considering what era it derives from and how does it compare to other super robot classic series of that decade". If not targeted towards hardcore super robot fans, then it probably might not be for you."

Again its good to mention that it might not be for everyone because it certainly isn't and you have to lay those points out in your review for sure but it shouldn't be what constitutes your total over all rating just because it doesn't match something like evangelion or Code Geass in terms of quality of writing and story telling. Because they are worlds apart.

Thanks for the information. I found out which ones they were, it was actually a few episodes in the middle where Getter robo gets the new shinespark ability and of course the last 3 which were basically loosly based off of the ending of the original manga. Which included the final battle against the Hayyki empire which of course the main villian was nothing but a damn standin for giving commands and didn't really ammount to nothing in the end.

By todays standards? Are you crazy lol. Comparing something from the early 70's by todays? Well Getter robo influence can not be understated and that is pricesly why I am taking a keen interest in it, not because of the story or the draw of the characters or just my love of mecha. Its mainly because of how iconic it is, just like mazinger. Although if you have experienced more classic mech series from the 70's, the later 70's were actually really good, specifically Tadou nagoma's romance trilogy, macross, gundam, ideon and leiji's yamato/harlock introduction to space opera. All of which were just amazing, so the 70's was not all bad, its just I think some of the early incarnations of these rooted genre's were pretty damn primitive, especially stuff in the Go nagai era. But when you get to tomino's, Tagao nagama,s and Hao myisaski's era's, things start to get damn good. Then of course the explosion of the 80's is when anime really started to show its full creative power with Legends like Mamori Oshi, Osamu Dezaki, Yumiko Takahashi, Kazunori Ito, Masamune Shirow, Hideaki Anno, Satoshi Kon...

Man if you have not seen the 80's and early 90's you have not seen this medium at its absolute peak.

Greetings, its a been a while since you Watched the Getter Robo G anime series and from your review, it seems like you really hated it. I am kind of in the same boat. How ever do you remember specifically which episodes were canon or moved the plot forward. I am currently watching it and i kind of just want to watch the major story episodes and skip the rest. So if you can remember, maybe you can tell me.
