Re: The Official Identify this Show Thread

i was watching a unit size comparison video on youtube, near the end it showed the Xi Gundam in animated form.(judging from the color, its from the 90s.) is this like a split second cameo in a series or was the Hathaway's flash novel animated in some small form back then? If you could provide a lin...

Re: Macross poised to finally see international release?

I wouldn't purchase anything for Harmony Gold anyway, but who buys "DVDs" or Standard Definition anymore? I don't spend my cash on anything that isn't at least 1080P HD Blu-Ray quality from a high definition scan source. And most of what I buy now is digital, no disc. I'm amazed there are still peo...

Re: If anyone wondered if Kagatie had any relation to Dogati

In Crossbone they just showed that Dogatie gave his infant bastard son Kizo to Kagatie so he could raise him. Wait uh... I haven't read Crossbone or seen V in years, so forgive me if I missed something, but what does that mean regarding their connection? Is it implied that their last names being si...

Re: Making Sense of the Battle of Loum

An omake from 08th Platoon covered Char Aznable's feat of arms at Loum. I can't reference it right now, as my subbed VHS tapes are in storage, and the US DVD release didn't have the omakes. It emphasized his agile attack tactics, bounding from ship to ship at sharp angles of attack, with all five s...

Re: Geneshaft

Can you elaborate on the plot? Well, you could say it is a future where ZAFT won the war and everybody are now Coordinators. Genetically-enhanced, grow in tubes, the whole shtick. Suddenly, mysterious ring-shaped objects appear outside the Earth orbit! It's up to the crew of the Bilkis to find out ...

Geneshaft

Brought this up on /m/ a couple of weeks ago but didn't get much of a response (well, to be more accurate I did get the typical /m/ responses - "whew, that's a LEWD bodysuit!") Anyway, Geneshaft . A somewhat obscure mecha show - look it up if you haven't seen it. It's... surprisingly good. Other tha...

Re: Neo Ranga

FINALLY, someone made a topic on my favorite non-mecha anime series. It pretty much is a mecha show lol. It's an organic monster, sure, but the Shimabara girls control him no differently than, say, Tetsujin 28 or Giant Robo. Especially in the second season where the fights get real intense. How doe...

Neo Ranga

First off I'll start by saying this is an amazing show. Just finished watching it and I have to say it blew my mind. In case you haven't seen it, this show's got everything - from excellent drama (which is the force behind most of the episodes) to monster vs. monster action, from commentary on moder...

Re: Victory Gundam: Details on the War

. As for where the Zanscare invaded on earth... I believe Kasserelia and the surrounding regions were all supposed to be in Europe. Yeah, IIRC Woowig is modern day Prague. Yep, one of the episodes has a map that shows that Woowig/Kasarelia corresponds exactly to Prague. Largaine is another location...

Layzner questions...

Just finished watching the OVA compilation episodes of SPT Layzner. In case you haven't seen it - highly-recommended stuff! Very reminiscent of other 80s Takahashi shows such as Galient and VOTOMs, so if you liked those, check this out. Keep in mind that the first OVA covers 24 episodes in 55 minute...

Re: Brain Powerd, is it worth it ?

It has some hilariously bad moments (particularly if you watch the dubbed version), sure, but there are some genuinely good episodes towards the end. Unfortunately it suffers from inconsistency and total lack of focus (it jumps from one scene/character to another without any warning) , and the endin...
