  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. Thats a hard question who is my favourite Anime Protagonists? First got to give a shout out to Susumu Kodai, first anime protagonist I watched back when I got into anime, great character arc in the story, he had good development as he worked past the death of his brother (spoilers for a show that originally aired in the 70's) and I loved the design which is a blend of modern and retro anime styles. But if were goanna talk about older shows, the classic OG Mecha protagonist of Amaro Ray has to get a mention. Once more I loved the character development here as he goes from a civilian kind of placed in the position of the white bases only MS pilot and their last chance for survival to ruthless solider and then to a more consensus figure that finally understands their purpose and what they have been fighting for all along. Next got to mention Simon one of my all-time favourite Mecha series protagonists in one of the best Mecha shows I've ever watched, (and I've watched a lot) I loved the development of the character but I really don't want to soil this one so all I can say is watch the show, it's fantastic with great action scenes and a riveting story even if it is short of a classic Gainax series where themes are placed above consistency and realism, it is honestly amazing and I think Simon is what makes the show and the ending. Just watch it believe me if you haven't seen it is awesome. So next Reinhard von Lohengramm and yes, I would say he's the protagonist and not Yang Win Li I now controversial but the story starts and end with Reinhard and I think the original author even seems to view the character of Reinhard as the central figure of the story, the great man of history if you will (and yes, I'm just going to drop a weird intertextual reference like that) again an a great character with a lot of development. Like Simon though I'm risking major series spoilers speaking about his actions and how they affect the world and his development especially what happens at Geiersberg Fortress so yeah go watch it. You can either watch the original or the newer series I think their pretty similar at least in terms of Reinhards motivations and character. Light Yagami is another one that I'm sure is controversial to say is the protagonist but again like Reinhart he is the character we start and end the show with and I'm even more sure that was the authors intent here, so yeah Light is awesome and so is Death Note. He is one of those hyper smart protagonists that comes up with all manner of crazy schemes and is just a treat to watch. Edward Elric is another one of my favourite protagonists, really loved the arch, is romance with Winry and his development and that ending really ties it together (I'm talking about the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood ending here as I haven't seen the original OG Fullmetal Alchemist run. One day) currently the only real battle-Shonen protagonist I've seen fully eventually he'll hopefully get joined by some other Shonen protagonists (just got to watch them at some point) Lelouch Vi Britannia is another one of my favourite protagonists, loved the character intelligence and design and ideals and that ending (original show ending here) was just unbelievable probably one of my favourite Anime endings of all time and again I've watched a lot of anime especially Mecha series and this one is right up there with show like Gurren Lagaan and Gundam, honestly so good and you needed to watch it at some point for Lelouch alone. that was kinda longer than I originally planned but yeah. No, I forgot Shirou, dam it I knew there was another Shonen protagonist I watched
  9. @MediaConsumesMe Rinis best girl my reason are pretty obvious. but I can prove it with science! Now on to more important matters The other anime I watched recently include the following... Area 88 Really enjoyed this anime defiantly recommend Outlander Didn't really care for this one it was very short and felt like it was doing too much. But for a wacky space adventure it was decent time waster. Tokyo Revelation It was okay but that ending kind of sucked in my opinion maybe better in the original Japanese's IDK Five Star Stories which I finally got to watch just today after starting that whole anime hidden gems discission which I began with this humble little anime that most people had probably never heard off.
  10. Only way we could have celebrated Shirou Day Honestly though not bad even if it ran though the plot of UBW at Mach speed. Plus it's Rin route and Rin is best girl.
  11. Yes such a great pick. This has been on my watch list for ages. I know slap me for leaving it hanging on my watch list.
  12. Alien 9 - MyAnimeList.net this is it right? kinda wanna watch it!
  13. Okay lets see what other underrated anime I've got hidden up my sleeves Iria Zeiram the Animation This is an interesting anime but it very simple and straight forward in all honestly with little character development but I think its an enjoyable watch overall Record of Lodoss War Kinda cool fantasy anime OVA, a little plotless almost like your that guy that misses a DND Session and when you come back the entire plot has rapidly moved forward. A Wind Called Amnesias This is a weird film Patlabor: The Mobile Police - The TV Series I know I'm a Mecha junky B Gata H Kei A short anime slice of life from the 2000s but highly enjoyable with some fun characters
  14. Oh god I've been gone forever again. So what's new Continued watching Galaxy Express 999 (Around episode 30 now) This show is really depressing. It's all poverty and misery across the galaxy, great start to the Leijiverse Continued Dragon Ball (Around 45 episodes in) I'm actually really enjoying DB not gonna lie man, Honestly can't image how good DBZ is gonna be. Completed both seasons Code Geass Lelouch of the Rebellion So good such a good anime. So smart and that ending oh its something else man Completed the first season of Attack on Titan FUCK YEAH HOW DID I MISS THIS! Completed the Bubblegum Crisis OVA (1987) Not the best show. A little dated but I enjoyed the ride and plus I mean... can't really complain Started Girlfriend Girlfriend I Now its trash anime tire but still I liked it for some reason So that's what I have been watching or am currently watching
  15. So after finished watching Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam, I like all true Gundam fans realised that Haman Karn was best girl She was Confidant She was Mysterious She was sensual She was powerful She was dangerous And the Qubeley is easily one of the most killer designs of the U.C. Don't fight me it's just true thought yeah the Sazabi gets close and maybe the Mark-III Zaku Then I watched ZZ Gundam and was introduced to the character of Mashymer Cello Haman Karn's most loyal and sort of goofy Cyber Newtype commander, and he saw Haman Karn like me. Powerful, Sensual and Mysterious. I won't lie I enjoyed his character quite a bit, easy B or A tire U.C. gundam character, fight me and like Mashymer, I also though the world of Haman, easily best girl S tire character. But then after his death the true revelation hit Even in Anime Simp's Don't Win
  16. Okay so I watched, finally, Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway Flash - Great really enjoyed it Then I watched the Gallforce Trilogy, all three films/OVAs and they where fine I guess The best part was the visuals of the space battles as infrequent as they where but the pacing was all over the place and it felt weirdly "pseudo-intellectual" in my opinion anyway. So the hunt for retro anime titles continues
  17. Been a while since I last posted here so... lets begin. First the big two shows Dragon Ball - Currently Watching Galaxy Express 999 - Currently Watching Completed: Trigun The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Made In Abyss Made In Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul Mobile Suit Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory - Re-watched with a friend A.I. City - Kind of just stumbled into that one Upcoming or on my more immediate plan to watch list; Payrate the Maxim Bubblegum Crisis Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway Flash Who needs IRL friends when I have anime; seriously though someone help me I think I'm an addict; for retro anime
  18. 1: Visuals; If a show looks good, then the battle is pretty much won. Anime a visual medium so I guess that makes sense in a way. To be fair I do watch a lot of shows just for the overall aesthetics, Such as old vintage OVAs and the sorts like Riding Been and other shows like Neon Genesis Evangelion. 2: Vibes; Half the time I judge an anime about how it makes me feel, the vibes I get when I'm watching it. Example recently with Dragon Ball which I started watching I was mecha hyped so the vide I'm getting is that the show is good. If I was to be more objective I might say well the animation is dated or something but when I'm in the moment I can pretty much just ignore that and focus on the cool Guko fights and such. 3: Story; Form the overall plot to the character arcs, story is one of those things that I can overlook in all honesty like if the visuals or character designs are just so good like in Venus Wars or Mobile Suit Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory , which have serviceable stories, that said good stories coupled with strong visual designs and audio just elevate any anime. 4: Audio; Audio is another important factor, mind you I'm okay with classically bad dubs. Audio in this sense is more like the music and song used or overall world tone and sound effects again this is the area like story were I'm more flexible. I say that yet I edited in the original Japanese's opening for Zeta Gundam so maybe it is more important. These songs here boys this is what we need! Also Mecha... Mecha makes any anime better, Being a mecha show is just better. I love the Mecha genre its like so cool honestly why did it have to disappear!
  19. No way new posts on my Waifu 3X3 nice! Keep the conversation going guys/girls its never a problem to fight for you waifu Plus as a bonus it amuses me!
  20. Its been a while since I was last on the forum nice to see that this thread continued in my absence This is a Film I've stumbled on in the mean time since I was last on the site; Its called A.I. City but also is called Love City Another one that's been added to my radar is GallForce, a strange series about a war between space women and... erm well find out for yourself because you wouldn't believe me if you if I told you!
  21. Damn right! Yasuko is a total MILF Also MediaConsumesMe wouldn't Saber count, she is the "father" of Sir Mordred right Your waifu face when they aren't ranked in a list of something they relate to.
  22. One that I stumbled on recently was a show called Tetsuwan Badi I just saw the opening on YouTube but it looks pretty cool Another one was a show called Uninhabited Planet Survive that's one that's been on my list for awhile. Those are two I just stumbled on anyhow. Also as a side note the forgotten gem which started this post "The Five Star Stories" will my dvd finally arrived and I'm probably gonna watch that soon.
  23. doesn't have the English dub sadly Update: No further in finding more full episodes of the show so farm found more clips so gonna try chasing leads In the meantime here a petition I found relatively new (4 mouths old) trying to get the ZZ gundam English dub released Petition · ZZ Gundam Remaster / English Dub! · Change.org Sign the petition to make this important and monumental task happen GUNDAM FANS NEED THIS!
