Re: Right Stuf announces 0079 Blu-ray, Turn-A movies, etc...

Ah, so the full TV and not just the compilation trilogy. I think I'm down for it; especially since the only MSG I own is the first english dub trilogy on VHS. The one where it was called the Independent Duchy of Zeon. Haven't watch it in forever—because who the hell has a VCR anymore? :lol:

Re: Turn-A Gundam getting a US DVD release!

Sorry bout that, Chris. Didn't check far enough back in the recent posts to really read your reply. And I've been surfing for any other info I could about Turn A's early release. I'm use to the outcome I've seen in the book world, that when a retailer sells a book ahead of a publisher's timetable, h...

Re: Netflix's Daredevil

Mmhm! Makes me wonder how the rest of the Defenders titles they're creating will turn out. For those of you who read the comics, how different is this show from the themes, feel, etc. of the comics? Are there any particular runs or arcs of the comics I should check out (they don't have to match the ...

Re: Tokusatsu

I may be wrong about it being backed by Bandai, though I usually see their banner advertised during the show. However they are indeed partnered with company that creates Kamen Rider and Bima is Kamen Rider-ish as a result. The show turned out to be popular enough to warrant a sequel series, Satria G...

Re: Netflix's Daredevil

Another nail in the coffin of my oldtype, one-episode-per-week rationing way of thinking we've all been raised on. Will need to finish the season for a full opinion.

But I am liking the fights, and hopefully the grittiness won't grate on me.

Re: Tokusatsu

Start actually exploring tokusatsu about a couple years ago with a new friend made at an anime convention. I mainly know how to find Super Sentai and Kamen Rider at the moment, so I've been viewing different seasons of those in no real order. Non-Japanese productions... I try to stomach Power Ranger...

Re: SD Gundam Sangokuden Brave Battle Warriors Thread

Ah, so that's what the series is about. I keep seeing it whenever I go to the Gundam Info youtube page. Well, with G Reco over and GBFT ending I'll check this out for my next Gundam fix.

Re: Turn-A Gundam getting a US DVD release!

Good lookin out!

Was sad to see it cancelled the first time around when Bandai axed its American branch.

Hopefully it'll get enough feedback to warrant other series getting an English subtitles release.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

But then there was that somewhat minor ho-yay which got turned up ten-fold this episode. But yeah, no waste of time, woo. To be fair, I think Minato was always depicted as being somewhat obsessed with Yuuma. If the elevator scene was any indication. Hence why I said minor. Noticeable and weird at t...

Aw yeah~!! Now this more of what kept me with this series and it's predecessor. Some very adept writing and pacing in this one. Even while they were shuffling Lucas and Gunpla Academy off the stage the writing gave you the feeling that there was more accomplished character development than we actua...

Re: Log Horizon Thread

Finished the first 26 episodes. Leaning more towards the dub, partly because the voice style they chose for catdude makes me giggle and reminisce about the old days of MMOs. I do think it has some of the same flaws that SAO is being called out for. It's not strong, but there is a bit of a harem ther...

If it gets lonely at sea then it must get really lonely out in space. But where did those pics of Mashner come from? Space social media? Her profile page? Rockpie's image account?

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

If you're going to call it like that, you might as well stop heaping praise over the first season and everything it supposedly did so perfectly, because the Build Strike's absorb system attacks and the RG system were exactly the same thing. I think the difference is that Jegan Howareyou has left a ...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk III

Wish we can have second season of G-Reco...I love the frantic pace of this series, and also the out-of-this world mobile weapon designs it has. Oh definitely the designs are a strong point of the series. Look so insane. :mrgreen: Damn right! They're almost as out-of-this-gundam-world as some of the...

Do you mean on its back? It has four thrusters because it was developed by SNRI for use in Jupiter's atmosphere.
