I'm A Mecha Pilot Now

This board seems pretty dead, so it's a perfect place to brag about something very trivial.

One day I decided out of complete boredom to meditate for an entire hour. This unlocked the hidden potential of my imagination, allowing me to visualize things to great effect. And it's not just limited to sight either, I can touch things, taste then and hear them with great detail.

Instead of using this power to fulfill some sort of sick fantasy, I decided to use it to fulfill my childhood dream of piloting a giant robot. At first I was in a black void, which was supposed to be the mecha's cockpit and slowly built things from there. A chair to sit on, walls to surround me and lots and lots of levers came into existence. Then I focused on making the outward appearance of the robot and the bland world it inhabits. Every time I needed my mecha to do something it couldn't yet do, such as moving its head, I'd simply add another button, lever or other component into the cockpit to serve that purpose.

After many sessions of spending time in my mecha and constantly tripping over because piloting mecha is hard, I suddenly noted two things. The first was a simple issue, I never installed a hatch to get out of this machine, and fixed that with a red button that reads "GET OUT" on it. On the other hand, the second issue was one I couldn't anticipate. The ruined city landscape I used for assistance in testing my mecha's movement was now overrun by giant monsters. A crazy-looking girl appeared on my screen and told me that she's going to kill me. The girl looked like she came right out of Umineko, and from the looks of it she was in her own mecha cockpit. Then one of the monsters attacked my fragile, unarmed mecha and died instantly. While dying does boot me out of my deep concentration, I can always jump back in at any time, with a shiny new incarnation of my same mecha. I've really gotten to know my mecha and can visualize its cockpit, outward appearance and important internal details with ease.

Because I still want to mess around in that same imaginary world, I now have to deal with the monsters and other mecha commanded by that weirdo who refuses to name herself. So basically I now have to create weapons for my mecha and to fight for my right to have fun in my giant robot.

That's all for now.

Kamen Rider General: 8kun Edition

Well in Kamen Rider developments, ZI-O happened. While a better anniversary than Decade, it didn't quite have a strong footing of it's own. Leading to a lot of questions left unanswered. With two movies, one of which is supposedly non-canon but is referenced in the show. Then the other that's been established as an alternate timeline by the director. With Geiz Majesty coming in March, hopefully we'll get some actual answers & closure this time.

Then from that trashfire, we get Zero One. Android sentience, company wars, & terrorism. It's pretty good. Currently on the 23rd episode soon to be released. Definitely should keep an eye on it. If you liked Ex-Aid, you'll probably like Zero One.

Now on another note, OZC has recently refused to correct an incorrect sub in his Kiva batch. Apparently due to the word 'master' having negative connotations. Despite the fact the characters say this word in english, he believes he can somehow "translate" this to 'boss' instead. It makes no sense.

Mecha and the West?

Why do you think that mecha seems to fail so horribly in the west? In the Early 2000s they made Megas XLR. The writing was fun, and it helped alleviate the low budget animation. It still got canned despite being decently popular.

Then years later Sym-bionic titan came along. It had actually good animation and it was a pretty good, if vanilla, super robot show. It also got canned despite having a decent viewership and it got even less episodes than Megas, which ended with the series being rushed towards a conclusion.

Then we have Pacific Rim, which also was decent, but it got panned critically, and people hated it for reason ranging from "not being realistic" to "being dumb".

Why do you think the genre just doesn't stick in the west despite other cartoons being made with clear anime genres influence?

Godzilla: Kaijuu Wakusei spoiler thread

Watched it.

Giant monsters start showing up from the end of the 20th century and wreck Earth, the worst of all being Godzilla. Also aliens show up and befriend mankind and help fight the monsters but by the mid 21st century 90% of the population is dead anyway and mankind has to abandon Earth.

20 years later and one of the two immigrant ships is running out of resources with no habitable planet in site and they decide to warp back to Earth, especially since protagonist Haruo has been researching Godzilla and has a plan on how to kill him (turns out that Godzilla has a shield which is what let him do shit like tank 150 nukes at the same time and Haruo has figured out how to turn it off).

They go back to Earth where 20000 years have passed and send out a team to kill Godzilla. The team gets wrecked by the smaller flying monsters and they decide to evacuate but run into Godzilla (50 m) and carry out Haruo's plan instead. It succeeds and they kill Godzilla.

The professor then tells Haruo that what they killed couldn't have been the original Godzilla because it was completely identical to their 20000 year old data. The original Godzilla (over 300 m) then pops out of a mountain, shoots down the landing ships by barking supersonic waves at them, and then wipes out everything on the ground by waving his tail at them which shoots out a beam shockwave.

Post-credits scene has Haruo wake up after having been rescued by some indigenous girl (descendant of survivors from 20000 years ago) wearing weird junk. Final shot is a still of him and other people standing in front of Mecha Godzilla.

Shin Godzilla

Copypasting stuff from you know where, spoilers of course:


PM is shown as indecisive and dumb but is willing to work with the US (doing so jndirectly kills him) and even has the SDF stand down at one point when it turns out that two civillians haven't evacuated the area yet

His actions are understandable becausr they have no idea how much of a threat godzilla is until he goes full ideon which is what kills the PM

Germany lets japan use their supercomputers, france helps stall the nume attack, yanks want to nuke but would do so even if this was NY and still help in operation yashiori (it's thanks to their drones that they can get godzilla to waste energy so they can attack him)

Final (fourth) form has the godzilla theme playing

Final showdown had SDF theme

Credits have original versions of both

Also a recurring BGM that has different versions building up as the movie goes on is VERY close to Decisive Battle

It starts playing and i literally laughed going holy shit anno put decisive battle in godzilla

It's not the same though, just te first bits of it repeated forever

operation to freeze godzilla is the yashiori sakusen

Like yashima sakusen

Only yashiori

And Ishihara's english is atrocious

No "tadpole" that i noticed

First form seen is some sort of retarded rat chicken with stumps for arms

Last scrne is closeup of tail tip, it's humanoid shapes (dead people?) reachig for the heavens and I just know there's a famous sculpture it looks like but i'm forgettig shat it was (somehjg to do with dantes inferno?

>Do you think theres some points to those guys that saw the movie and made little articles complaining about the "nationalistic issue" in the last days and citing it as something that could affect foreign views on the movie?


Takes the piss out of the left as well but mostly out of dumb conservative politicians

Only bits that could be jnterpretaed that way are

-early on they don't attack godzilla because muh constitution (more poking fun at politicians putting their own interests before other things- they don't want to be the ones to do something with no precedent)

-china and russia are 100% assholes but that's just being true to real life

Felt more like a god warrior than godzilla but i liked him

Everything the SDF throws at him literally can't make a scratch. The only time any damage is done to him is when the yank B2s drop bunker busters on him which damage him once. Up till then he didn't even seem to register anything as a threat and was just waddling around, but after the bunker busters he does his Ideon impersonation and nothing can hit him at all (all the bombs AND bombers are shot down by his fin beams, plus the PM and most of the cabinet are killed by this too).

He can breathe both fire (regular fire) and the purple beam which is a focused version of the fire. The first time he does the fire thing he incinerates a massive area and it's depicted like the city destroyer beam from Independence Day. The purple beams (mouth, fin and tail version) don't burn but cut, basically the same thing as the god warrior beam but without the huge explosions at the end.

They defeat him by throwing drones at him until he runs out of energy, then use train bombs and controlled demolition of skyscrapers nearby to knock him over so they can force-feed him a thing to freeze him.

Mech Design Chart

Hey /m/, I'm doing something of questionably autistic measure.

I'm trying to make a very basic chart for mech/mecha design where examples can be sorted out, just for the hell of it. I thought it'd be nice for some board engagement/activity too, so why not.

This is what I got so far, encompassing general aspects that are usually found in each sufficiently distinct mech "type". It's still unfinished and everything's subject to change, of course. The spaces at the bottom are where design examples will go, but I'm aware that they are too small and I'll make them larger later when everything else is set. Input is appreciated.

Bio-organic Mechas

Should there be more series with bio-organic mechas? Should there even be a series with bio-organic mecha that is equal parts horror and action? Should we even have a series that treats these kinds of bio-machines with the Lovecraftian mysticism the Demon of Steel OVA treats them?

And many more questions. So far, the only things that fit close the bill, from memory, are of course the Einst from Banpresto and the Bird Human from Macross…can't remember if the Gilgamesh units from Macross II fit that bill. Surprisingly, the red Gilgamesh unit from Macross II bears a very eery resemblance to the red mecha from the HnO movie, the titular Hagane. Right down to the two thumb hands.

The weirdest thing of all is that I haven't found games with them as the main mechas, just as enemies only. Could they work in a Zone of the Enders type of game or some other type?

Iron Man vidya

>Seriously, why aren't there good Iron Man vidya?

The guy is one of the most anime motherfuckers in all of the western world despite what people want to believe, he's a guy that basically builds his own power armours that as time goes on take on more and more a slicker, more japanese and Metal Heroes-ish style, heck even adapting some of other famous japanese power armour design ques, like Samus' Varia Suit. And he even builds his own "Buster" suits in comics that are either Power Ranger styled Battlizer or a Megazord if the situation needs it.

So I ask this : why oh why, is it so darn difficult to make a good Iron Man game? Especially when the japanese already have multiple playstyles ready for the guy. You could pick from FROMSOFT's Armored Core titles to be adapt Iron Man or Artdink's Macross Ultimate Frontier specifically to make something with the character or even if all those fail, why not give it to the Lost Planet - EX Troopers team at Capcom to make a game fitting the character?

But it even the newest movie before this series finds an excuse to keep the armors away from the users. Just so many bad decisions.

Why did this fail?

Seriously, why? Was it due to the Arcade machines costing so much? Was it due to the battle system? The 3DS game's an OK RPG by SE standards and the animu was good…the mecha's were pretty rad. Is it because they opted for Super versions of the mechas instead of gattais and not using Eurobeat?

At least now SE knows how to do arcade mechas with Starwing Paradox, so hopefully we get a continuation of this. Would be ultra cool to see some more of this franchise.

I must say, that Eureka Seven was a fantastic show! The world-building is top notch with a definite focus on "show, don't tell." The main characters punk/hip hop vibe contrasting against a militaristic society work incredibly well. Despite being a "love conquers all" story, it really hits the themes of a coming of age story hard and precise. I'm not sure why everyone feels so blasé about it, it certainly deserves a top spot.

With Decade 2.0 on the horizon, I wanna take the time to discuss exactly how the flimsy canon of Kamen Rider works.

Brain Powerd was much better than I thought it would be. Tomino's jab at second wave feminism was a lot less of a comical blunder than most review sites I read about it on. I wonder how much of that is due to my increasingly conservative views?

Regardless, the art is great. I hate that they float so much because it really makes it difficult to have dynamic choreography that way. However, it is does well enough. Not the best shooty bang bang mecha out there but I love it for the characters and message.

The Brave Express Might Gaine

Hello /m/, I'm a newfag so if there is already a thread about this, don't get mad at me I'll just delete my shit.

My question is why there is no good translation for Might Gaine yet? Is it because automated one from bakabt is sorta understandable and no one bothers? There is a much better quality not subbed DVD rip lying on nyaa for years now.

I think it's one of the best non-grimdark mecha series out there, that still for some reason gets grimdark at the end.

It also has my favourite robot design, the titular Might Gaine! Though I think that his upgraded form looks stupid.

And the question regarding the big dark reveal: Is the world where characters live actually some sort of virtual simulation, or it is real but artificially created by aliens to be broadcasted galaxy-wide?

Another question: will it, or other series from this franchise like GGG ever get Bluray re-release?

Megaton Musashi

Does anyone remember Megaton Musashi? Does anybody here know what happened to this series?

For anyone who needs a refresher; Megaton Musashi isn't just an anime, like Gundam Age and Inazuma Eleven, it was supposed to be Level-5's next cross-media production which meant anime, manga, toys(and amiibos?) and of course video games as well, namely on the PS4 and 3DS with the 3DS being the primary platform. It was supposed to be a…Danball Senki meets Gundam except they are Super Robots on the moon and with the storyline of Getter Robo Armaggedon except the Moon Wars and the extinction of mankind from the Invaders happen at the same time. The gameplay for the 3DS at least was to be like Danball Senki's except refined and it seems like you collected robots a la Gotcha Force. Sources below :

DOC (Device Operation Control) Base. This as a set with the Turn A Gundam is known as "System ∀".

A massive mobile armour that docks with Turn A Gundam that is "a tactical system that revolutionises traditional MS operations".

Only rough designs existed, never fully seen in the show. The weapon silo under Vicinity is all that remains of it.

The rough was drawn by Sunrise's Horiguchi and is considered "semi-official".

The model seen in the picture is based on the rough sketch, which is not of the entire unit (it supposedly continues on further to the left).

Sword Gai

Hey /m/ , anybody reading or watching Sword Gai, also known as the second bastard child of Toshiki Inoue and Keita Amemiya after Inoue droped acid and forgot that this isn't 2006 before Lost Child / Project Cerberus came out. Saw the anime but it was a pile of shit given it was a.)an anime original plot after some point and b.)a Netflix anime. The plot being the biggest offender since it seemed as if a drunk Toshiki Inoue cut a plot a somber Toshiki Inoue wrote, worte his own plot, cut that one up as well and then combined both of them in the most nonsensical and non-sequential way possible.

I should hate it but I unironically love it since the anime is like an anime from the early 00s trying to imitate Soul Taker and failing. It even has 00's level CG in it. But that's probably because I was nostalgic for that kind of thing and a second viewing(KEK) will make me change my mind.

Senritsu no Stratus / Stratus of Terror

From the company that brought you some of the Clock Tower games,NightCry and helped with the first Tekki / Steel Battalion game, KONAMI gives them five cheeseburgers to make the best PSP game ever.

They make what is essentially the adaptation of another manga / anime(can't remember exactly) and put mecha in it. It looks like EVangelion but it's not, the similarities are insanely superficial.

The gameplay consists of the hero doing something mundane which involves talking and doing RPG shit, the second phase is the aliens attacking and you going out on the field and fighting aliens, saving civilians, gathering intel etc and then going back to the HQ to give out an accurate report that will move you to the third phase : the giant mecha battle. Then plot happens, the episode ends and you watch an ending as if in anime. Then, after you save the game, the next episode starts with an opening. No joke. Unfortunately the game is very much on the cheap side, 30FPS etc you know the drill but since it's on the PSP you can emulate it(I don't think you can buy it anymore anyway) and it's really worth it for those who like mechas and the whole ground level fight before having the big climatic giant battle.

[Terada P X Nasu Kinoko] Why did SRW's producer refuse when Anno said "Put Char in an Evangelion"?

[Terada P X Nasu Kinoko] Why did SRW's producer refuse when Anno said "Put Char in an Evangelion"? The conflict between the source material and games, and what FGO inherited from SRW


The servants of Fate are born from the fun of broadly interpreting throwaway lines in legends

Terada: I like Teito Monogatari, and that too fused real people with original characters, so that you start to really think "The writer Kouda Rohan fought monsters". The same applies to Journey to the West, but if you want to put a real person into fiction, you have to really learn about that person first. With robot anime you can just watch the show and read the information, but with real people, and especially recent people, I think it turns out that a lot of them turn out to be different from what you expect. That's why while I like stuff like Makai Tensei which has real people in fiction, I think it'd be too difficult for me to pull off.

-We'd like to hear about how Fate was made

Nasu: Fate was just a denki novel (literary genre generally with occult stuff that has its root in legends or mythology) turned into a game. 80's denki novels, including Teito Monogatari had a common theme of "this stuff happened behind the scenes in actual history", which meant stories based on real events. This doesn't really apply to denki novels from the 00's and on, but the initial idea for Fate was made just at the end of that age, and is about stuff hidden behind modern society, and the heroic spirits are based on history. It's made to be loved by people interested in mythology and great figures from history. But lately I've been starting to hear questions like "Who is King Arthur?"…

Terada: Really?

Nasu: That's just how much the amount of basic knowledge users have has changed. We were making things based on an outdated format, and just hadn't realised it.

-Do you think there are people who didn't know who King Arthur was, who first grew to like Saber from Fate and then went and studied King Arthur?

Nasu: I think most people should have at least heard of King Arthur's name. When it comes to more minor characters, I hope that people can enjoy Fate by starting with "literally who?" and then looking them up and going "oh, that's how the legend goes" "they interpreted this part of the legend that way".

Terada: The level of reality is totally different, and you do learn about history. "There's no way someone like this could have really existed… They did!?".

Nasu: Just studying this stuff is fun. Some of these historical figures are really amazing, just loaded with anecdotes that make you go "what is this, a comic book?". Before FGO, if I wanted to have 14 heroic spirits I'd buy two books for each of the characters and read those, but FGO has over 150 and it's basically just world history at this point. I certainly wouldn't be able to handle this on my own, so I called up a few writers I could trust and we bought a load of books and spent a year studying them. It was a crazy start, but thanks to that we grew to understand historical figures much better, and were able to apply that to the writing.

Lee has teamed with Scott Bernstein, the Universal executive turned producer, and Warner Bros., which released It, to adapt Ma.K, an epic sci-fi property out of Japan.

Originating in the early 1980s in Hobby Japan magazine, Ma.K was a monthly comic that also tied into customizable model kits. It was created by artist and sculptor Kow Yokoyama, who worked with the magazine's editors to create an expansive universe inspired by Star Wars, Blade Runner and World Wars I and II. The combination of manga and models took off, gaining a worldwide cult following over time.

The story is set far, far into the future after a nuclear war caused survivors to flee Earth. When the planet is habitable once again, new colonies are set up, but it's not long before a battle over resources begins. When one side wants to make Earth independent, a new revolutionary war begins, this time with mechanized armor and robots.

"Kow is a world creator in the truest sense, and this project finally gives Ma.K a global audience who will experience this epic and rich sci-fi property as fans have for the last 35 years," says Kevin Munroe (TMNT), who will executive produce with Yokoyama, Rick Privman and Yumiko Miyano.

Gundam Seed

Hey /m/ I've followed https://imgur.com/m1mrtjX to watch the entire Gundam series up to Turn-A so far. Right now I'm wondering where to go next I've know that chronologically speaking I've got SEED coming up next but I genuinely don't know if I'll be able considering how bad it apparently is. Ditto for AGE which is supposedly absolute dogshit, could I reasonably just skip to 00 and Unicorn as opposed to watching SEED/Destiny/AGE?

hey anons. i used to watch anime as a little kid and there was one that stole my heart from the first episode. for some reason, they only aired the first episode. i can't remember its name. i was hoping someone here would recognize it from my memory.

here's what i remember: the anime was from the 80s or 90s. it was about an intergalactic war between humans (earth vs something). both sides used gigantic robots. the pilots were teens (16-20 year olds). the main character, was a fantastic pilot. at one fight he got critically injured and suffered a memory loss due to the injury. he was captured by his enemies and they made him fight his people. last thing i remember was him being sent off after getting treatment to fight and he BTFO'd his former friends. they thought of him as a traitor after the fight. that's all i can remember. please help.

You are cordially invited

Good evening /m/, I am the Board Owner of >>>/bmn/ and run the weekly Bad Movie Night stream a few of you may have heard about. The purpose of this thread is to serve as an invitation to any and all anons of this board to join in our 1 year anniversary celebration stream.

I hope you will join us Saturday night for a celebration of the best I have to offer. The night will be more than double stuffed compared to normal nights, with 7 movies instead of 3, all from the glory pile. The show list includes: Dracula 3000, Alien vs Ninja, Vampiyaz, Bug Buster, Robot Wars, Evolver, and 90210 Shark Attack. The first 6 earned their places for relative bits of quality, entertainment value or even fun, while 90210 Shark attack earned its spot by dumbfounding everyone with how awful it was. In particular, I think you all might enjoy our robot movie block.

I hope you will join us for this occasion, both to join us in shitposting about bad movies with other anons, and to enjoy a small project I have been working on for this occasion. Information about the anniversary stream can be found on >>>/bmn/49 or in pic related.

Toku Streaming

Alright, Kissasian is dead to me. Finally bypassed it's anti-adblock only for it to fail me yet again. Kissasian was the only reliable site I found with a wide array of toku. With the death of nyaa, many translated batches were lost so downloading isn't much of an option. Jatoku meanwhile has most of it's videos removed or just plain not working because the site with them won't let you access them.

So basically, I'm looking for alternatives to streaming toku online. Downloading is fine too if you can find older torrents that are still around. But it'll most likely take a while compared to just watching this stuff online.

Kidou Senshi Gundam Daizenshuu (1991)

Source: Kidou Senshi Gundam Daizenshuu (機動戦士ガンダム大全集)

Published 1991/03 by Kodansha (Terebi Magazine)

ISBN-10: 4061784129

ISBN-13: 978-4061784123


Not full translation

"Char Was Supposed To Appear in ZZ"

"The project for Gundam ZZ was started as a direct continuation of Z Gundam, and the story first thought of could be said to be the exact opposite of what was ultimately aired."

"To the left is the initial proposal, and as you can see there are large differences, such as with Emma Sheen who died at the end of Z Gundam had survived and was instead going to die here. But the biggest difference was that Char was going to appear. He was going to switch sides to Haman Karn, and attack the Argama that he was a member of just a while ago. "

"The story in this proposal is a lot darker than what was broadcast"

"Though (Char) is an enemy of the protagonists, in the end he kills Hamaan. But ultimately he cannot come as close to awakening as a newtype as Judau. He is a lonely man who cannot become a newtype."

"The Mineva Zabi appearing in this proposal is very much the real one."

"Many people who watched (Mobile Suit) Gundam and Z Gundam wondered if this little girl would one day influence the world of Gundam someday. An orphan of the Zabi family, though she was a little girl who only existed to be used by Hamaan when she reappeared, something about her gave out a premonition of the ideal newtype. Here, she comes to Earth. It is not an overstatement to say that this is representative of the spiritual fusion of space immigrants and those who stayed on Earth.

"There is not much of a difference in the personality of the Judau in this proposal and the version aired. He is just slightly a bit more mature, due to influence from Emma and Char. The reason is because he was created to be the opposite of Camille."

"(Judau) was created as someone to awaken as a healthy newtype. But that is why in the end he has to leave Earth."

Why do western mech fans hate japanese mecha so much? The main argument they have is "all eastern mecha is wing zero and voltron." Obviously most of these fagboats have probably never even heard the vast majority of real robot series.

IMO Voltron Transformers and Power Rangers helped poison the well by making westerners think all japanese mecha are super robots, and gundam wing with its lack of realism put another nail on the coffin.

Go talk to any hawken or titanfall fan and they'll tell you about how eastern mechs are sooooo gay. How do we fix these faggots?

So we had a thread, when this board's started, about updating /m/tan's design. Months later, with the tread gone, and the dust settled, you guys want to tackle that again?

I've personally been going with this suggestion I had made, on the left, just switching the 8ch logo back to the M. I like this as it's still simple to draw, it's still similar to the original (indicating there wasn't really any rupture), it's just a custom paintjob. Doesn't feel resentful, as Punished /v/ does.

The others, which I did based on other drawfag's proposals, I feel get a bit too complex- a good board-tan is visually distinct yet simple, you know?

Anyways, /m/-tan thread. Post images you have you like, even if it's of the halfchan version. Do new art. Suggest design variations, whatever. Let's have some fun.

I'm not going to discuss much this last episode (47) because it was just a setup for the big fight that is coming next, the "kill em all" episode that comes afterwards (hopefully), and the final-fight/resolution that comes in the last.

Having said that, the image names of these two pics is all I have to say about this episode… and the character "development" of Mika during this anime so far.

PGI has just announced their upcoming title, Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries.

>Announced at MechCon 2016, Piranha Games is taking MechWarrior back to its singleplayer roots with MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries. Slated for a 2018 release, Piranha Games president Russ Bullock took the stage to reveal the first footage of MechWarrior 5, which is being developed using Unreal Engine 4. You can watch that demo in the video above and head over to MW5mercs.com for more info.

>Though details are scarce, what we do know is that MechWarrior 5 is a completely standalone singleplayer game being developed by Piranha Games using a separate team than the one currently supporting MechWarrior Online, its multiplayer-only CryEngine game that went into open beta in 2012. MechWarrior 5 will feature "intense PvE ‘Mech combat in an immersive, career-based Mercenary campaign driven by player choice."

>If you're not too familiar with the series, MechWarrior is the tactical FPS offshoot of BattleTech, where players pilot a single BattleMech and issue orders to squads (called 'lances') of AI-controlled allies. Set during the Third Succession War of 3015, MechWarrior 5 puts you in the cockpit of a "green MechWarrior mercenary" caught in the conflict by factions vying to control the Inner Sphere—the region of space surrounding Earth. True to MechWarrior, pilots won't just need to prove themselves on the battlefield but will also oversee the maintenance and enhancement of their BattleMechs. Along with the emphasis on player choice, MechWarrior 5 seems to adhere closely to the traditions established by the earlier MechWarrior games.

>Aside from the demo, you can feast your eyes on the screenshots below to see what a MechWarrior game in Unreal 4 looks like. Spoiler alert: Pretty damn good. With the turn-based BattleTech strategy game coming in 2017, there's an exciting future ahead for fans of mech-on-mech combat.

>Stay tuned, as I'll be bringing more coverage of MechWarrior 5 (and BattleTech) straight from MechCon.

So, how bad do you think its gonna be?

I don't mean the end of the show on episode 51. I mean the last two episodes that are just crossover specials. They were quite frankly terrible. Totally incoherent and dumb. The Magic Land movie was way better than those episodes. Really brought down my enjoyment of Wizard. Unfortunately can't even watch the movie special with Gaim that seems to really tie up the Wizard story. Kissasian only has it with Engrish subs.

/m/8s, I want to make a good /m/ story. Open for suggestions, I won't be doing an anime though, saving that money for other anime series I'll be making. Anyways… TL;DR:

>real mecha

I have most of the physics and engineering part done.


"Around" this time, somewhere in the USA (maybe Texas because they're always bluffing about seceding and have the infrastructure to put a fight).


The "main" characters will be around our age (to appeal to oldfags, again, this is a free project); might put a loli newtype for the lulz;


civil war vs terrorism vs shekels? I want to make it redpilled rather than "redpilled"

>medium (what I need help with)

I can do a light novel, but is there something more fun? Again, I can't draw and I'm saving shekels to do my animes later in the future.


I will not be begging for shekels (patreon, etc) because I'm just testing how accurate does the physics and engineering have to be without boring the audience… or getting in trouble for writing a nuclear weapon manual.

Did I missed anything else in this introduction?

Will listen to /m/ and /pol/ (won't be posting there though)

Patlabor Reboot



really creative name there. it's being shown alongside re-screenings of other works from Japan's Animator Expo in October, so I'm guessing it's a one-shot short film.

Familiar names in the staff list include Hideaki Anno as a producer, Kenji Kawai as the composer, and Kazunori Ito working on the script. Of course, Yutaka Izubuchi is on mechanical design.

New names are Naoyuki Asano as the character designer and animation director, and Yasuhiro Yoshiura as the director and scriptwriter. Not sure what Asano has worked on, but Yoshiura is the creator of Patema Inverted.

Koichi Yamadera and Megumi Hayashibara are listed in the cast.


honestly to be expected in this day and age. doesn't look horrendous, but doesn't look amazing either. pretty run-of-the-mill.

>old Ingram design instead of one based on live-action

I think they want to ignore everything about the live-action series right now lmao

OGMD translation probably going to be shit


Beach Dwellers came with English subtitles so I took a look at them.

The English grammar is odd at points, the translator can't handle Japanese grammar, there are obvious major mistranslations (race/species referring to how there are elves and mermen and shit running around becomes "tribe", the fucking FRONTIER becomes "reclaimed land", Haken talking about Sanger becomes a line where he suddenly babbles nonsense about "old war comrades and farewells", etc.), there are some FUCKING WEIRD translation decisions (Haken calls Sanger "Mister Samurai", this is "translated" to "samurai-san"), and the translator has no fucking idea about the source material (the Fushizakura/Undying Sakura is referred to in plural, Neige is referred to as a "fairy" instead of as an elf).

So yeah, if OGMD is handled by the same people, you can expect it to be garbage.

Mecha Plot

Make a plot for a Mecha show

>I know there is a similar thread already but I want a thread that concentrates on the story and physics

Make sure it has the following:

- A main character mecha

- deus ex machina Physics particles

- death

- bonus if it manages to have comedy or be wacky like Zambot 3

Bazookas in gundam are just sexy in general but not the GN bazooka, that thing should not even be called a bazooka, its just a particle cannon.

>Typically young MCs that get to pilot giant robot war machines, easy to self-insert for the kiddes

>Enough iterations to keep in syndication for years

Old timer here...wtf is Demonbane?

Can someone just sum this up for me? I started getting into mecha again, watching good ol'clips of Shin Getter and GGG but in comments I see people talking about Demonbane this Demobane that. People are saying its the best mech ever.

Is the anime actually good or is it simply like Naruto/DBZ where its something with inflated destructive levels in its respective universe?

I could go into GaoGaiGar, Shin Getter and even TTGL because I enjoyed the shows enough but is Demonbane something that's enjoyable for a mecha fan?

Any anons remember this game? You basically had a quad legged mech that could fly for brief periods of time and were a small part of a larger battlefield. Kind of honestly like playing Supreme Commander as a Tier 3+ ground unit in the first person.
