Yeah this is totally going down the Uprising route because 2 kids could totally maintain a huge machine on their own... :facepalm:

Honestly that seems like an extremely premature conclusion. Just because there is one plot point that might be similar to Uprising doesn't mean the whole thing will be bad. The basic premise for the character's motivations already sounds a hell of a lot better than anything Uprising produced; not to mention that we do see other people in the back working on it.

I'm confused, is this like an alternate timeline or something? It has a way more post apocalyptic feel than any of the movies had, so i'm not sure how connected it's suppose to be , if at all, to the movie universe. Still, there's enough there worth checking it out.

I’ve watched the first season of Pacific Rim: The Black, and I’ve enjoyed it so far. I’m waiting for the new season to come out. I haven’t seen uprising, and I’m rewatching the first film after a long time, and from what I can tell and read on the Wikipedia page, the anime series is set upon the first two films, like an expansion of some sort.

Oh yeah, I watched it with a friend a while ago, too, completely forgot we had this thread; The Black is everything I want out of a 7-epiusode mecha OVA. I look forward to the second season, and the plastic robots.

The Black was pretty good, but the story needs to give Haley a break with all the guilt tripping. It places the blame for her friends' deaths squarely at her feet, while ignoring the fact that Copperhead had to be in the area for the noise she made to mean anything. If he was roaming around in the vicinity like that it was only a matter of time before he found their village, no matter what Haley did or didn't do, and yet this never seems to occur to anybody in the show.

But apart from that it was pretty good!

I see where you're coming from, but I quite disagree. It's not the show that is putting the blame on Haley, it's herself; no matter if it's true or not, I find it not exactly difficult to believe that she would think she's to blame after that, coincidental as it may have been

Given that nobody challenges Haley’s account of things, even after she’s drifted with them, it seems obvious the show is treating Haley’s account of things as a matter of fact rather than just her perspective on things.
