I just finished the final episode of Gear Fighter Dendoh.......................

..........................................

...............................................................


I love this more than Zoids, I love this series more than The Vision of Escaflowne, I love this series more than Gaiking: Legend of The Daiku Maryu, I love this series more than Gravion, I love this series more than Victory Gundam,I love this series more than Ideon: Be Invoked, I love this series more than Steel Jeeg, I love this more than Six God Combination God Mars, I love this more than Neon Genesis Evangelion, I love this more than Gundam SEED Destiny, I love this more than Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, I love this more than Super Robot Wars Original Generation: The Inspector


I even love this series more than MOTHER F**KING GENESIS OF AQUARION! (series version anyway)

If you call yourself an anime fan this is a definite recommendation for the masses, even if you do not watch mecha anime or even if you are fresh into anime.

And my head exploded from all that awesomeness.

Oh lord where to begin
SpoilerShow
-Awesome mechs
-Awesome mech attacks
-Awesome weapons
-Useful support units (do you have *ANY* idea how rare it is for mecha series to have those?)
-Awesome villainous anti-hero
-Awesome ending theme
-Awesome monsters of the week (although early ones were pretty dumb)
-Awesome art design
-Awesome and very consistent pacing
-A likeable female lead (*RARE*)
-Likeable pilots
-Very well done suspense
-Lagou has awesomeness comparable to Pikdron and Dragonsaurus
-Very well done homage to older super robots (Chou-Dendoh Yo-Yo!)
-Lots of story twists
-Zero is one of the best bad guys ever
-A neat Death Star ripoff
-The four episode long final showdown was spectacular
-Emperor Galfa's true form made a worthwhile final boss
It is really hard to describe without actually seeing it, but rest assured it is enjoyable. 8)

I stopped after ep 26, but since I'm done with Dendoh I will resume it soon. I did manage to see the Burning Clock and Twin Blood specials too in case of copyright nazis.

First 13 episodes of Gundam 00 Season 1.
I watched 00 Season 1 years back when it was available for streaming.

Haven't watched it in a while, going to go through season 1, 2 and the movie.

I watching Ideon and Code Geass for the first time. I'm also working on rewatching Turn-A since the dvd release got canned. I'm also trying to watch Space Knight Tekkaman and Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.

Stuff I finished before this topic was bumped (although not in order):

Tekkaman Blade
Tekkaman Blade: Missing Link
Tekkaman Blade 2
God Bless Dancouga


Anyway, I started watching the uncut version of GoLion and managed to watch a couple of episodes. Then I went to check for episode 3 and apparently WEP got into trouble by Toei and NOW THE ENTIRE SERIES IS OFF OF YOUTUBE! And it was from an OFFICIAL CHANNEL! Did someone do serious troll baiting by making a false copyright claim or something? Are they part of the internet strike? Or did Toei really did become THAT greedy? Well, until I find them somewhere else I guess this means my "first impressions and comparisons" topic is going to sink.

First 8 episodes of Bubblegum Crisis 2040.
Still a good series as much as I remember it.

Watching it on my newer released set.
So yeah, doing that and sort of taking a break from Gundam 00.

Really amazing home and I love how you can listen to the thoughts of the characters. Makes it really interesting plus Kurono being retarded all the time

it is really sad the series reached the manga so they had to end the series!!!!

I hope you guys watch it

Well down here they recently re-released the series again so I got it and watching it for once.
I had the old boxset at one point, really like the ADV dub.

Re-rewatching Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. After that I plan to re-re-rewatch Code Geass and finish Gravion Zwei. Then after that I think I'm going to rewatch Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector.

Episodes 13 to 18 of Bubblegum Crisis Tokoyo 2040.
Now we are in to more of Sylia's origins and Galatea is on the loose with the Boomers and all that.
Also I really did forget how much I enjoyed Nene' growth as a character and her feelings for Macky.
Which Macky also shows back equally for her.

Also I have to give serious props to Hillary Haag the dub voice of Nene.
She is just awesome and captures alot of her quirks better then her Japanese actress at times.
And when she gets emmotional she can pull it off right.
The scene where Macky, Nigel and Nene are talking about Macky and he contemplates suicide.
Nene's affectionate outburst at him and then how she breaks down in tears moves me EVERY damn time.

I just finished .hack//SIGN and the OVAs, and before that I watched Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal. I'm stuck trying to choose my next show to watch, but I have a feeling it'll be Victory Gundam.

Didn't know Aquarian Evol was out already. You liking it?

Also, how far are you in Victory Gundam?
