  2. Mobile Suit Gundam Trilogy These where a great compilation film series, I think the second Mobile Suit Gundam II Soldiers of Sorrow was a little over condensed for my liking but Mobile Suit Gundam III Encounters In Space is peak Gundam and defiantly makes up for any shortcomings of the II's adaptation by tightly focusing the final arch of the Gundam series. Defiantly give these a watch if you haven't before. Dirty Pair: Affair of Nolandia and Original Dirty Pair: Flight 005 Conspiracy finally got around to watching some of the OG Dirty Pair OVAs and I have to say I thought it was really enjoyable, Kei and Yuri stole the show with their antics and I can only imagine some of the wacky shenanigans they get up to in the original TV show now and follow up OVA series.
  3. The Mobile Suit Gundam Trilogy Well since I just finished them I'll say definitely check out the MSG Trilogy Films, their a very good condensing of the OG TV show and I think their are some general improvements especially n Mobile Suit Gundam III Encounters In Space with more focus on Lalah and Sleggar (the most under apricated character in the U.C.) and the inner turmoil of the Zabi Family. Also the songs are kinda boss not to mention some of the visuals. The Five Star Stories Also since I'm back here I might as well give a shout out to the Five Star Stories only watched this one last year after fined a AMV of all things of it online, its a under apricated anime gem from the 80s and the Golden Motar Head is to die for. I'm kind of wanting to read the manga this is based on.
  4. Completed Fate Extra I really enjoyed this show, Nero was boss Completed Legend of the Galactic Heroes Dei Neue Thesis Season 3 Collision Really great continuation form the last season, though I've more or less spoiled the entire series now by watching both the original series and reading the book, but I still recommend Re-Watched Slayers A fun series though and though, I defiantly recommended a re-watch and to watch if you skipped over this series. Still Re-Watching Death Note (Currently on episode 20) I've been stuck on episode 20 now waiting for my friends to get together again to continue watching this series, I've watched it before but still I really want to get to the confrontation between Light and L. About to cross the half way line of Galaxy Express 999 (Gonna place on hold afterwards for a bit. Currently on episode 45, gonna get it to 50) This remains the most depressing amine ever, but for an introduction to the Lejiverse its a good jump in point, I'm gonna be pausing on this for a while once I get to ep 50 as to continue more with the original DB Resuming on Dragon Ball (Currently on episode 50) # Just began watching this again, Still as good as where I left off Watching My Dress Up Darling (Currently on Episode 8 This has been on my watch list for awhile, I really enjoyed it. Sometimes its nice to unwind with a slice of life romcom series. I recommend.
  5. Thanks for the shout out. Naturally I'll have to start my list with the titular Mobile Suit Gundam Series Mobile Suit Gundam Char's Counterattack Mobile Suit Gundam Chars Counterattack serves as the final resolution of the conflict between Char and Amaro, the lead protagonist and antagonists from the original 79 classic anime, its one of my all time favorite both Gundam film, Anime Film and Film in general though I'm probably bias as I'm a big fan of the franchise, however if your not a fan ands haven't watched the original and some of the other shows like Zeta and ZZ Gundam I wouldn't' recommended Mobile Suit Gundam F91 Another great Gundam Film would be Mobile Suit Gundam F91, a beautifully animated film of the early 90s, though unfortunately thanks to Sunrise medalling originally promising lead writer of Gundam Fam Yoshiyuki Tomino, a series, before walking back to a film, the story is very crammed in. I still enjoyed the film and the manga continuation is turning out to be a great read. (Still thou best headshot in U.C. arguably) I have yet to watched the original remake films yet, so can't comment on them (I weep) Legend of the Galactic Heroes My Conquest is the Sea of Stars If I was going to sit thought the 110 episodes of this legendary bemouth I was gonna watch the film as well, the film is thematically dense with a lot of philosophy and political speculation of the back of it. I really enjoyed this one and its a great way to warm up to the show. Crusher Joe A underrated classic, Crusher Joe is a forgotten relic of Japanese's sci-fi and the source of inspiration for future works like Cowboy Bebop and Outlaw Star, More people should check out this anime gem which drips of 80s nostalgia Venus Wars this is a personal favourite of mine, stunning visually and thematically deep. YAS (character designer on the Gundam series) wrote the manga and directed the film, it bombed on release but still the visuals are so priceless and the film has grown a cult following. Akira Its probably an anime film that everyone and their grandmother has watched but that's with good reason, stunning animation thought and thought and a very good adaptation of the manga Ghost in the Shell One of the first anime films I watched I highly recommend thought I think other Mamoru Oshii works are his best. Patlabor the Movie & Patlabor 2 speaking of which, being a MECHA fan I had to check out the Patlabor Movies, which were surprisingly deep especially the second film with the JDF deployment in Tokyo, the films scream atmosphere from the wide shots to the intense if brief mecha battles. Jin-Roh The Wolf Brigade Based on the Kerberos Panzer Cop, the manga written by Oshii and part of the Kerberos Saga, Wolf Brigade is a deep film and dispute its links to the manga and the Kerberos Saga you can pretty much watch and enjoy without any knowledge of the other works, naturally with Oshii the visuals are mind blowing. That's all for now though thier are a lot of other films on my list to watch including Captain Harlock Arcadia of my Youth, the Galaxy Express 999 Films, Mobile Suit Gundam Trilogy, Space Battleship Yamato and many others.
  6. Yeah he's up their as the most infamous anime YouTubers, that said he has some good tastes in anime I suppose but he's way to toxic and also E-Begs The fate of E-Beggers!
  7. Wait we had a disagreement over anime. I swear to good I will post Young Defiant on here...
  8. I heard of that one but never seen it think a friend has it though so I might borrow it off him at some point looks cool I've only ever watched ergo proxy once though I'd probably pick up more in a rewatch after watching it the first time like Evangelion.
  9. Lets think about that? Mobile Suit Gundam I mean I knew it was coming but not like that... best headshot of all time! Space Battleship Yamato 2199 This episode shocked me. If you watch it, you know what I mean Stiens;Gate This show never stopped shocking me from start to finish, from episode to episode it just kept changing. Death Note I'll take a potato chip and eat it! Code Geass My god that ending... perfect!
  10. What counts? That a good question MECHA!!! JK no it's a bit more complicated than that... For me it's kind of literal anime is another word for J-animation or Japanimation. So, animation, but something distinct from Western Animation or American Animation, you defiantly get works outside the medium of animation, such as JRPGs (I mean the creator of Dragon Ball Akira Toriyama was involved in Chrono Trigger so yeah connected) which are heavily inspired by animation but that's likely because the game designers of JRPGs and other Japanese's video games made specifically for the Japanese audience were inspired or consumers of Japanese animation. Thier can also be works outside of Japan that are defiantly inspired by anime, which is good and totally awesome, but I'm not going to go as far as call them anime.
  11. So what are anime that you guys and girls think are re-watchable? What are anime that you want or plan to re-watch? here are anime that I have rewatched or plan to rewatch Mobile Suit Gundam Numerous Gundam shows, mainly U.C. focused. Space Battleship Yamato First anime I watched, rewatched the two seasons numerous times Code Geass Plan to rewatch this after a friend showed me it and got the Blueray Death Note Currently re-watching this with some friends, awesome show Toradora! Great anime, one of my all time favourites Outlaw Star Need to show this to some friends, really enjoyed this and super underrated, plan to rewatch Gurren Lagann Got this last year, and after watching it wanted to re-watch on the spot. I need to rewatch it like maybe after Death Note Legend of the Galactic Heroes Die Neue Thesis Need to rewatch this in preparation for the fourth season!
  12. Metal Skin Panic MADOX-01 In terms of story this aniem wass pretty bad but then I don't think i watched it for that Dam that a fine ass mecha! Detonator Orgun OVA series this was pretty interesting a little generic, "with the whole love vs hate" and "power of compassion" message but I enjoyed Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt December Sky and Bandit Flower The first film was good The second was very good like DAM!
  13. Mobile Suit ZZ Gundam (Unreleased English Dub) Only parts of this hidden gem and a couple of full episodes have ever been leaked! I mean I have no idea why Sunrise refuses to release this. It probably the most ANIME DUB TO EVER DUB
  14. Let me think for a moment? Well, I know that what I'm saying is likely heresy but... Haman Karn X... Mashymre Cello Why well because the dudes like willing to die for Haman, that's dedication Dedication to Simp for a woman to the grave! I know Haman X Char is more popular Hell, their a manga based on Haman X Char Hell even Haman X Judau is more popular So why do I say this because I agree with him!
  15. Favourite antagonists now that's a challenge! First two from Code Geases, Schneizel el Britannia and Princess Cornelia li Britannia. Really loved these two with Cornelia being a really good main sort of villain and antagonist in R1 and Schneizel being the best antagonist in R2, with the whole Battle for the Planet and his own really interesting ideas on how to better run the world being really interesting and a good contrast to Lelouch. Next, we have another duo of villains, Char Aznable aka Casval Rem Deikun aka Quattro Bajeena aka The Red Comet and Haman Karn. Honestly Haman is one of the best villainesses in the OG U.C. timeline and is sought of the archetype for the Ice Queen villainess seen in a lot of Mecha. She is also kind of a badass in her own right and is easily the best girl of the U.C. and then we have Char the quittances Mecha antagonist, the Ying to Amaro yang so to speak. We all know how this one character spawned countless clones in other Gundam shows and in Mecha in general, from the iconic design to his rivalry with amaro that goes beyond the time (see what I did their) truly one of the best antagonists in anime. Dessler is another one of my favourite anime villains and antagonists, I loved the depiction of the character in the remake of Space Battleship Yamato. The fact he was also my first anime villain I watched probably makes me a little bias but still loved the character, the motivation and the reveal near the end is awesome. "I shall bring peace to..." and you'll have to watch the show to find out but seriously underrated antagonsits I think and sought of overlooked show at least with western anime fans I think so do yourselves a favour and watch. Giffen is another one of those classic antagonists though we haven't gotten to see a lot of him thanks to the pretty bad adaptations of berserk's black swordsmen arch (I'm looking at you Berserk 2016) but in the OG Berserk anime from 1997 we got enough for me to say he's one of my all-time favourites And lastly Gilgamesh from Fate, (Ethier Fate Stay Night or Fate Ultimate Blade Works both are cool) he the type of antagonist you love to hate, up himself completely but so cool doing it. I think Keria some's close to Gilgamesh, but Gilgamesh is kind of in a league of his own IMO.
