Re: Gundam (In All Its Incarnations) Mk. II

Today I watched Char's Counter Attack for the first time in a long while. After watching Zeta and ZZ the plot is easier to follow, but the movie really suffers from some bad Tomino info dumps early on where the Neo-Zeon characters basically have barely comprehensible disjointed exchanges filled with...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Hanasaku Iroha episodes 14 to 26 watched. In general more fanservice, mostly onsen-based, and more drama than the first 13 episodes. The fanservice is a bit too much at times, e.g. Minko gets basically shown entirely naked from the front save her naughty bits (nipples and crotch) that are hidden by ...

Re: The Macross Legacy Thread (Incl. +/DYRL/Zero/Seven/Frontier/Δ)

Well, it's been a long time coming but I finally got to watch the seventh episode of Macross Frontier! :D THIS is why I watch Macross for the most part, for the sorties in the Valkyries and they did not disappoint. The fact that it was taking place during a Sheryl Nome concert didn't distract at al...

Re: 3.0+1.0's Troll Potential

The movie: - includes a scene that builds up to look like the infamous hospital scene in the original movies, only for the squicky bit to either not happen or turn out to be something else altogether (either innocent or psychologically really disturbing). Or it ends with Shinji molting into Shin-Shi...

Re: Gundam (In All Its Incarnations) Mk. II

Nagano worked on Zeta and is credited as "Design Works," which meant that he worked on ship designs and other equipment (I know he at least designed the Argama) but I don't know if he designed any Mobile Suits. He did the Qubeley and quite a few other suits, e.g.: https://safebooru.org/in...

Re: Gundam (In All Its Incarnations) Mk. II

ZZ episodes 17-39 watched. There are quite a few filler episodes in this part, some of which have very formulaic plots and annoying continuity errors. These probably match with the period Tomino had to retool ZZ after getting the green light for Char's Counter Attack. It starts getting better with t...

Re: NGE Blu-ray (UK)

Welll that depends. I'm by no means an expert on which company distributes what, but Gundam shows almost all have a 500 bucks limited edition thing that comes with way more garbage than you'd ever reasonably expect; I don't fully expect that to happen for Eva, but I wouldn't be surprised either if ...

Re: NGE Blu-ray (UK)

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

Hanasaku Iroha eps 1-13 watched, another show with great animation and a lot of lovely scenery (I'm not only talking about the girls). It is also thankfully free of blatant fan service (which I rather dislike...). However, considering the subject, it is filled to the brim with another kind of fan se...

Re: NGE Blu-ray (UK)

"UK exclusive" is a bit of a misnomer, seeing all of their releases can also be bought in mainland Europe... But well, the source is American, and they still seem to have some kind of issue with understanding that the UK is not some kind of floating magical island that's disconnected from ...

I watched the first episode of G Reco just now - is this what drugs feel like In the most literal sense of the word, every single line of dialogue in there felt like it was written by a neural network. What the fuck is this show. Wait until you watch the first episode of Double Zeta... :bigeyes: It...

Re: FML general thread [8]

So for once there's something interesting on Dutch TV, and of course the power supply for my set-top box gave out since the last time I watched TV (which is a few weeks ago, yes, TV sucks that badly over here). They also used a non-standard plug so I can't use a universal power supply... :irked:

Re: FML general thread [8]

In the UK a lot of businesses are refusing to handle cash at present, and many are only doing business using contactless cards (or phones with Apple/Google-pay), so that there's no need for customers to type a pin either. The banks helpfully upped the contactless transaction limit from £30 to £45 a...

Re: What anime are you watching right now? Summer 2016 to now

I recently watched Kamisama Dolls. Excellent animation, even background characters have distinct faces. The ending theme is quite catchy. The story is also quite good, with good exposition and pacing, but unfortunately the show has no ending because apparently it was made with the expectation of a s...

^ Yeah, I read about how in particular Loran ends up with Dianna instead of Sochie which didn't sit right with her last time we see her in the show. Tomino really cannot write good romance to save his hide! Is it as bad as in Zeta Gundam where characters fall in love in less than an episode to have...

Re: Gundam (In All Its Incarnations) Mk. II

Zeta Gundam episodes 1-8 watched. The series has aged well, and the animation is still top-notch 35 years on. There also are some designs that are clearly partly recycled from L-Gaim (1984), not only MS designs but especially certain space ships (right down to the colors used). Kamille reminds me of...
