ITT: Plebeian/Entry-Level/Baby's First Mecha Cartoons. Starting with an obvious.
Except most of the Gurren Lagann memes died a long time ago. There was a brief resurgence when it aired on Toonami, but other than that I haven't seen much.
Gurren Lagann predates Gundam 00 by six months, though, so if Gundam 00 is really fucking old then so is Gurren Lagann.
Aren't all /m/ shows entry level?
The difference between TTGL and 00 is that TTGL hasn't really gotten anything like it to replace it in the minds of casuals since it came out (though you and I know better). On the other hand, there have been a plethora of Gundam series since 00 and the casuals are naturally gonna latch onto the newest one, most of them not caring enough to go back to any previous ones.
>>15463643 >I hate Wing because it was popular
Never change /m/.
Even in season 2 this barely happened.
Most decent threads involving topics for 00 season 2 only have the same shitposter bashing it with a friend of theirs. /m/ is such a tiny board you can identify an anon's posting style at this point over the years.
I'm thinking of watching the Brave mecha anime series, What is /m/ opinion on which ones are the better series out of all of them.
Da Garn for the plot, J Decker for the characters, GaoGaiGar for a mixture of both.
all the theme, insert, and ending songs
J Decker has the most interesting robot characters. GaoGaiGar has interesting plot and character stuff. Goldran is surprisingly good but keep in mind that its primarily a comedy and doesn't take itself as seriously as the others.
This question gets asked a lot, so I came up with this
Brave series power rankings
>Best artwork: Dagwon >Best animation: GaoGaiGar >Best robot cast: J-Decker >Best human cast: Da Garn >Best villains: Goldran >Best overall cast: Goldran >Best OP: Kaze no Mirai e (Da Garn) >Best OST: Da Garn >Best mecha designs: Dagwon >Best weapon designs: Goldran >Best finishing move: Goldion Hammer (GaoGaiGar) >Best combination sequence: Great Da Garn GX (Da Garn) >Best plot: Da Garn >Best pacing: Dagwon >Best overall: Goldran
Keep in mind that Might Gaine still doesn't have complete subs, which is why I've excluded it. I haven't watched a single episode.
Does this count as Mecha?
I watched it for the first time last year and the same happened to me. Hell I'm already considering re-watching it.

Its hard finding new shows that cover the topics logh covers to the same degree.

Miraculously I got my normie roommate to watch it with me; guy is really enjoying it.
As for me I'm watching it a second time, and its even richer desu.
Definitely in my Top 5 of all time.
I've been looking for more illustrations like in pic related since they're so detailed and I also like the art. Do you guys have more like it preferably in HQ ?
Let me preface this by saying, I'm surprised how different an impact the MSG Trilogies have on me, when watching them stoned. It's really quite amazing.
I never really considered the character impact that Lalah and Amuro's encounter in space had for the entirety of the series (beyond the obvious Char/Amuro rivalry being rooted in the death of a mutually loved one). What struck me the most was how absolutely distraught Lalah seemed to be, that she "met Amuro" too late and that she had already decided that her reason to fight was to protect Char, the one person who found her, gave her purpose, and perhaps truly loved her. I've never done LSD or DMT, but I like to think the experience of being connected, feeling truly connected and understanding a person, things, feelings, the universe, existence itself, etc... truly becoming "one" in a metaphysical sense, is similar to the experience Lalah and Amuro had. With that said, shouldn't such a profound experience of being the first 2 humans to fully, 100% understand one another in an instant, be more than enough for someone to rethink his or her intentions/reasons for fighting/reasons for existing? I am surprised that Lalah chose not to reconcile, rather to recoil in disappointment. It's worth noting that in the MSG novels, i think it was Chalia Bull who made a similar mistake-- he tried to "push" too hard to become one with someone (was it Kusko Al? I can't remember!) but the person reacted in a similar way-- it was far too much to understand and take in, and so the advance was met with rejection. So: 1. What if Lalah reconciled, fully took in the Newtype encounter, and joined Amuro? Would she or he even still wish to fight in a war? 2. One step further, how "connected" could 2 newtypes truly become? Is there a limit? If Amuro and Lalah had kept the encounter going, would there be something catastrophic like a Second Impact or similar? What are the physical consequences of a pure Newtype resonance?
>>15466342 >Because our bodies are simply shells
As I said this is factually not true and transhuman effort can't change it. It's just simple biology.
>because the plot demands it
It seems to me the other way round. Tomino genuinely tried to write a story of superior being that can get along without effort but his intuitive understanding of psychology wouldn't let him rob the free will and destroy the integrity of his characters like that.
If such a thing as Happy Tomino exists it is because he finally realized that if he wants his characters to be happy he should just stop trying to force them to get along.
pointed out all examples of complete understanding involve people that are dead because that is the only way to achieve "ego death". You wouldn't want to be dead now, would you?
>>15466066 >doubles zeta scores doubles
HONTOU NO KOTO SAAA
OP again-- I'd argue that "ego death" via "death" is only one way to achieve this. If we look to NGE, the systematic destruction of the AT Field results in ego death-- but is this a "death" in the way we understand it? Death is just a transition state to enlightenment/unity/oneness. Our attachment to this world clouds the true nature of death.
>You wouldn't want to be dead now, would you?
I think is oversimplification. If anything, all we can get from Zeta is that someone who is Dead (in the traditional sense) and someone who is Alive cannot properly assimilate and reconcile as one.
Zeta and Unicorn show the dead can assimilate as one. It seems like MSG was on the cusp of showing two alive persons could become one as well-- until Lalah pulled away.
I was surprised myself. Also checked.
>>15468441 >If we look to NGE
Exactly. Shinji rejects the idea of Instrumentality because it is ego death. We equate existing with the consciousness of ourselves i.e.that we have free will. Our concept of free will is at the basis of spirituality - the ideas of morality, religion etc. can only exist because of our intuitive perception that we have free will and this perception can only exist because we are subjectively conscious of ourselves as separate entities.
From a moral perspective without individual agency the concept of unity is also meaningless.
In effect the rejection of individual agency is also a rejection of the moral principles that motivate us to seek spiritual enlightenment.
I still want an Astray spinoff.
That and actually see more of the universe get translated. Scanlations move much too slowly to keep me interested for a full series run.
They should gather all astray side stories and turn them into a single seed anime.
>>15468120 >They should gather all astray side stories >gather all astray
I get it.
I'd rather Seed was buried into chernobyl
That looks like shit.
What did he mean by this?
SRW that includes Beltochika's Children and ends with Amuro surviving so he can finally have some measure of happiness as an expecting dad when?
Please post the other two if you can.
It means he thinks he's as cool as Amuro, proving how big of a faggot he really is.
Banana stole that line for Unicorn too in Z3, also putting his faggotry on full display.
Brace yourselves for more mind-melting madness with Episode 07 of Ultra-Combining Magical Robot Ginguiser!
Hot springs time! :D
Thanks again Luurah! Hope you don't mind but once I watch this I'm marathoning the series raw, nothing personal I just want to finish it.
You really won't lose much, the plot is generally obvious enough.
I'm autistically checking some of the worse-sounding lines but they rarely matter.
>>15471372 >You really won't lose much, the plot is generally obvious enough.
I don't believe in tropes so I don't know what you mean by obvious any more specific than the good guys winning.
I mean that you can generally tell by the visuals exactly what's being said, besides some occasional odd exposition, especially after seeing the translated show terms already (Antares orbs 'n stuff).
Oh okay, thanks anon. I've finished a lot of 70s robot anime and toku without subs so this will be a cake walk.
