SO, SSSS.Gridman just finished.

Thoughts?

And if you haven't seen it by chance.... do that.

(Ah and be wary of spoilers past this point. You don't want this spoiled.)

So, I'd initially dropped this series early on, but decided to give it another chance since a lot of people are speaking very highly of it. I'm currently about halfway through & it's well on the way to being my favorite series of the Fall 2018 season which pretty much guarantees it a spot on my Top 10 of 2018. Will post more once I've finished

So, just finished this series and still probably need things to sink in a bit but my theory at the moment is

the girl they show waking up at the end of is Akane and everything that happened was inside her dream

Need a bit more time to really put my thoughts together, but it was quite the ride and in all likelihood my favorite series from the fall season

It was NOT just a dream. Within the world of Gridman lore, there's the real world, and there are virtual worlds. They are every bit as real as the "real" world, despite being virtual. So while I personally do not know how she made this world in its entirety, aside from perhaps Alexis making it for her, that virtual world will absolutely continue existing on its own. Akane may have woken up from being the god of that world, but that world carries on nonetheless.

Ah, I see. So as my observation suggests, I have zero experience with Gridman prior to this series. That & the fact that I've never really been into tokusatsu franchises was one of the reasons I dropped it early on. Still, even though there may have been times I enjoyed the show with a wrong understanding, it doesn't change the fact that I did enjoy it. And the overall message that came across to me was

 

she wanted to escape from the annoyances of her normal world to one where she could control things, even though it turned out she was being manipulated, And in the end she realizes she need to live in the "real world" even with all it's problems

Basically yes. The show's main moral is that it's okay to escape from the real world for a while to get a grip on things, but to always remember to never simply try to run away or avoid your problems, as that doesn't solve anything.

This is the best thing I've seen anyone say about the show:

Haha. When i first saw this post i was thinking of Gridman from Megaman: 

350?cb=20110125104941

So from what i understand this is a mecha series? When i have time i'll look into it. Thanks for the heads up.

This might as well be a mecha series. Ultraman is like power rangers and you know that at the end they always faced off against a giant monster with combined robot parts. 

I happen to like mecha series ever since Super robot wars so this works out.

SSSS.Gridman isn't actually technically a mecha series. Kinda looks like one, but it isn't ;D

Fantastic series though, hope you enjoy it @Crevanille

As I mentioned earlier in the thread, you will likely have questions. I can probably answer them.

      For PS4/XB1/PC! I am so hyped for this game, don't know how Saitama is going to be balanced, just hoping all the technical stuff is done well and holding out for 4-6 player couch co-op seeing as 3v3 battles seems to be the main mode. Anyway guys, check out the trailer below and tell me what ya think! Tbh, I have been dying for an OPM game since I started watching the show, always thought an RPG would better suit a video game but I am incredibly excited because fighting games are my favorite genre.

      So, I have a challenge for myself and I don't know if anyone wants to help me out, but I think it would be pretty fun.
       
      I want new story Ideas but I also wanna see the free expression of characters, so I figured, why not let someone else choose what the characters do.
      And I don't mean choose your own adventure, a, b, c, or d. I mean, completely chose. I may write "a silouette crosses Mario" and if whomever handles mario decides to ignore it, there goes that, challenges to think of ways of driving the plot forward. 
      Now I'll write the lore and be the overseeing narrator (although cool to add ideas together) secondary characters, and some stuff related to the plot idea (some 2ndary characters, and maybe a bad guy I wanna have in the lore), but based on the character choice the entire plot could change. Protagonist, lead 2ndary characters, and maybe even villians, I want for someone else to make the choices.
      It'll be an ensemble cast to get multiple ideas, but once we get a good plot going, then somebody would take the role of a selected new character, etc. 
      The setting is modern day, and general plot would be the world of magic! like illusionist and magicians, (think the sorcerers apprentice movie with nic cage, or the now you see me movies)and the first set of characters would be a regular human, and their lives will change. 
      For now tho, If you wanna play along, leave:
      Name.
      Age.
      Occupation (student, worker).
      Nationality (maybe we make it an across the globe thing?)
      Any specific quirk or  detail you want your character to have? (very shy, hates bugs)
       
      To get started I'll leave you with an opening from the character I'll play, a deity type character to introduce us to this world. (I like to write in a screenplay style cause it helps differentiate the dialog)
       
       
       
      Lets see where this goes!

      hi all i am trying to look for a new anime that is similar to fairy tail as it is coming to an end as it is the final season so i'm just wondering if there is any good anime that is like fairy tail, where they are groups of wizards who go on missions with each other?

      What do you think about domestic girlfriend?

      Hello! I'm Kay but I also go by Blue in some places, like Discord. I actually go by both names there, too, lmao.
      ANYWAY 
      I enjoy anime, as I'm sure you can guess because I'm here. I also enjoy video games and roleplaying (mostly on Discord or Tumblr). I'm a female so I prefer she/her based pronouns. I'm not too picky about it, however, but yeah. When it comes to anime, I sort of prefer the action/adventure ones with a comedic edge and an unearthly vibe to it, like magic or demons. Just something that isn't purely normal human stuff. With games, I have the same preference and love open world types, such as the infamous Elder Scrolls or Fable.
      That's it about me for now. As I get to know you guys, I'll likely reveal more about me! ^-^
