Scirocco was the ultimate ladies as man memory serves he had many women underlings who would follow him blindly. Hell it even happened in dynasty warriors gundam 3 he got 95% (I’m exaggerating a little) of the female pilots to join his team. I wonder how many female pilots he was able to get on his team in super robot wars.

Excluding Rossiu (who is only physically slightly effeminate and mentally much less "manly" than many other cast members...including Leeron) I have no idea who these are. I was just commenting on those I knew.

The Macross7 protodeviln also has very campy gay feel to its creature design

View Original PostTwin Drive Sigma Aquarion wrote:Camille are effeminate/blatantly gay?


For some reason I'm not all that surprised that you missed one of Kamille's core defining traits (given your track record for "paying attention" in the past)....Anyway, Kamille is quite probably the originator for the line male mecha protagonists with emasculation issues. Kamille is a girl's name and all... Alto and MF don't pay few tributes to Kamille without a reason.

View Original PostTwin Drive Sigma Aquarion wrote:Orguss and thank you. Xard would hate it though, the main character is quite cool.


I'm still open for possibility of Orguss being decent series if you could make an argument for it. Unfortunately that's not something you've ever really done and knowing how divergent our opinions are most of the time just because you like something or find it "cool" is no indication of my enjoyment of the title in the least on its own.

Tarnsman wrote:She gets worse.


Oh great, I can imagine. As long as they don't drop the ball with Emma I'm happy...I mean, I know they supposedly drop the ball with Haman Karn in ZZ but she should be pretty good in Zeta at least. I don't know if Emma even lives through Zeta. :P

as for one more name that I must mention, I literally lol'd when I saw "Pharaoh Mouar" for the first time :rofl:

@IO:

Episode 8 was a riot. Seriously, good stuff.

Ganbareeee, you can make it there!

I have no idea who these are.

Guwam was the turtle Beastman general than bragged about his shell; the rest I could understand, but how could you not remember him? Did you not see TTGL?
Anyway, Kamille is quite probably the originator for the line male mecha protagonists with emasculation issues.

Oh no! He has a girl's name! That TOTALLY makes him non-masculine! /sarcasm
I'm still open for possibility of Orguss being decent series if you could make an argument for it.

Typical Real Robot Pilot: I have problems man, I'm in a war man, I'm too shy to kiss a girl even at the end of the series man, I start out as everyone's boy toy man, people I know are lost and I'm constantly depressed man, etc.

Atypical Real Robot Pilot: I'm on a mission. I will not be stopped. I will use my intelligent moments in dramatic style.

Kei: Hmm, I shouldn't rescue your kidnapped villagers after you stole my mech, but your granddaughter's a babe and she's 18 so for that I'll rescue them. [Seriously, that actually happens in ep 6 :lol: ]

I can't remember name of every single side character esp. since it's been close to year since I last watched TTGL

Well, lack of logic still stands because I would've thought for sure Guwam was character you'd like. On the other hand, that's what I would've thought about Klan or Noriko or...so yeah, wtf

Could be good, could be bad, depends entirely on execution. Lecher protagonists aren't exactly rare either

I hope.
I´ve seriously watched way too much anime in the last few days and nothing seems fun after MS IGLOO anymore.
I even thought that the newest Steins Gate episode was kind of mediocre.

The ball drop in ZZ is a combination on the show forgetting to give her a character beyond just being a bitch who is tired of everything, and the show forgetting she exists for 90% of it.

You get on this list by being one of the following or a combination of sorts:

1. A fan service character
2. A useless character that is not entertaining
3. An annoying character
4. A character I don't click with
5. A really terrible fighter/pilot without amusement
6. Be really freakishly stupid

It's actually quite hard to get on that list.

CGI Gundam anime with background battles on the One Year War. Very well done.

OVA series in CGI, mainly about the Principality of Zeon and focuses on experimental vehicles and weaponry. Protag is full aryan.

MS IGLOO is about the decline of the Zeon during the OYW, the protagonist is a Zeon scientist/engineering official who tests experimental weapons in the war.
It´s basically a sad Gundam "poor guy with shattered dreams of the week" story without any newtype magical powers.

I highly recommend you guys watch it, Gundam fan or not.

I'm managing through Code Geass. If you get past the plot holes and info out from the blue, its... entertaining. It's attempts at being deep are rather weak, but at least it tries. So far, the concept that it is trying to present is an interesting one, but it is poorly executed because it attempts to create a big picture from scratch, instead of gathering little pieces and building up from so. Oh, and Lloyd is by far the most entertaining characters I've ever seen in an anime.

I agree Lloyd is the most entertaining character in the show IMO. I wish they gave him more screen time.

SPOILER: Show
An emotionally moving episode in every way. The whole episode was but at the end when Mayuri told Okabe that it was ok to cry....

I am one for romancey stuff and this episode was perfect. PERFECT! Although not the pre-ED ending... I'm especially happy that Okabe admitted he loved her <3 The I also knew since the beginning the Suzuha would still be in this word line. After all, she did land on the radio building..........


In 2ch by universal acclaim this episode IS THE BEST God God tier episode for Steins;Gate. I see that you have changed your avatar to reflect how impacted you were.

===

On another note....
Not related: God tier level is declared by consensus in 2ch for EVERY EPISODE (at least from ep.4 onwards9 of YuruYuri. Recently the word "SSS" is getting circulated around in association with YuruYuri (and Namori, the author of the manga) -- meaning it is of super-super-top rank of anime (rank SSS is above SS which is above S which is above A). I would not comment on that but I do fall in love head over heels with this anime and every episode so far is choke full of entertaining, cute and funny moments. Each character including the minor ones (like the council president) is highly memorable. I would even say this is the best slice-of-life anime I have seen so far (and there are quite a number of them). Anyway, 'nuff said (for the moment).
