When will BONES ever realize that they just can't into mecha? This sounds like complete horseshit.
Bones was a part that broke off from Sunrise. Of course they can into mecha.
>can't into mecha
I know you're frustrated, E7 and RahXephon were awful and SD was mediocre. BONES mecha is Sunrise mecha without their charm.
It's gonna be Star Driver 2.0. I can't fucking wait.
this is like what you said about valvrave
At least it's not anorexic mecha now
Have you ever considered that you may simply be a shit?
Except Valvrave was done by Sunrise and was at least an entertaining trainwreck as opposed to a repulsive trainwreck.
Plenty of times. Doesn't change my post being right.
Code Geass R-2 was an entertaining trainwreck, there was nothing entertaining about the second half of VVV. Just bad.
I like the wacky names BONES give to their science fiction anime.
Keep telling yourself that while you masturbate to A-Drei pictures, faggot.
Bones are great with traditionnal 2D animation (see Space Dandy), but their stories are often bland and unoffensive.
They never manage to create buzz like Shaft, KyoAni or IG Prid.
They can only into drawing mecha.
The only good mecha they've done is King Gainer and they were still part of Sunrise when they made it.
>but their stories are often bland and unoffensive
That may be true, but there's this one anime by BONES I really love a lot in every aspect.
What is up with Bones, mecha, islands, and rainbows?
I'd include male teenagers, but that's just a given.
Teenage boys, short haired girls with tomboy inclinations and shapely older oneesans are Sunrises good influence.
>Bones, mecha, islands, and rainbows?
A combination for cringeworthy disaster. This is why I'm going to avoid Captain Earth and /m/ this spring.
>short haired girls with tomboy inclinations
Nothing can be as bad as Xam'd.
I liked Xam'd. Granted, it's far from perfect but I'm rather fond of it.
>Towards the end of its original Japanese run, Eureka Seven won multiple awards at the 2006 Tokyo International Anime Fair, including Best Television Series, Best Screenplay for Dai Satō, and Best Character Designs for Kenichi Yoshida.
Some people are just MAD that Bones makes award winning mecha
OP IS A FAGGOT
>Eureka Seven won multiple awards at the 2006 Tokyo International Anime Fair
Use a dictionary if you don't know a word.
E7 was the only good Bones mecha show. Actually, the only good Bones original.
You have a shit taste.
I guess I can't really say too much about it. I dropped it when the guy shot himself.
No, I mean all of BONES/Sunrise's short haired girls are super girly and deredere. Granted I think it's revolting but I'm just pointing out facts here.
Eureka started out pretty dandere, like the Rei clone she was.
How many short haired tomboys in mecha are there anyways
>E7 was the only good Bones mecha show
>Actually, the only good Bones original
You ought to be smacked. I bet you think the dub was good too.
I dropped it towards the middle.
The design was cool, most of the plot was cool, they were raising a good point about terrorism and imperialism, but ... the MC as you would agree with me was complete and utter shit.
The girl was shit as well. You can't create two unbearably unlovable characters and expect people to stick with this shit.
But man, I have to say this sure flopped hard. I think it barely went over 2000 DVDs.
Star Driver was really enjoyable though.
Dere or tsun has nothing to do with them being tomboys.
They ride mecha, they don't care about their looks, they are tomboys.
I might as well:
Ray >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Anemone > Sakuya > Tall hoe > Irrelevent geckocrew > shit > Eureka
Really the whole cast was shit but if I had to choose a best girl in E7 it would be Ray no doubt.
Or wait, did he make his head explode with powers or something? I can't remember anymore, can't believe it's almost 5 years ago now.
Not enough in anime altogether. Everything needs more tomboys.
He said they were super girly which does count if they're tomboy or not.
>says someone else is a faggot
>posts an image of one of the most homoerotic anime made to date
Post Boku no Pico next time. It will be less ironic.
He ripped his own head off using his Humanform powers.
>the most homoerotic anime made to date
>He most likely didn't watch it
And Honestly? I'd rather that then the steaming shitpile that was E7.
>He said they were super girly
Not more so than most tomboys.
Eureka is by far the ugliest anime girl I've seen.
That being said you don't need to look like a butch lesbian to be a tomboy, feminazism has skewered your definitions, murifats.
Short-haired Eureka was quite the revolting sight.
>their stories are often bland
I think you mean BAD ORIGINAL ENDINGS.
>They never manage to create buzz like Shaft, KyoAni or IG Prid
KyoAni are the niwaka choice, Shaft and IG mostly fly under the radar these days.
It was terrible. Even the Zeta movies were better.
Her scarred, short haired form was pretty damn ugly but her first and final forms were just fine.
I disagree OP.
Are people on /a/ still using this buzzword?
Jesus Christ. When did people start using this retarded buzzword again?
Almost as bad as her pig disgusting voice.
>It was terrible.
It's the best they've done.
With King Gainer they were at least had a style ove substance thing going and it was a proto TTGL type anime.
I really needed to get used to her scarred look.
You don't have to. She's ugly and there was no reason for her to be ugly. There's no shame in thinking that. It's just an example of poor writing, then again the creator was also a writer for the abomination Tekken: Blood Vengeance so you can't really be surprised.
He's a Hero
Gonna take Global Warming down to zero.
Is that basically E7 2.0?I mean it seems like they didn't even try for the mecha and the suit
That plus Star Driver.
So let me just make one thing clear:
Wolf's Rain = Sword of the Stranger > Darker Than Black > CB Movie > FMA:B > Tokyo Magnitude > Star Driver > Blast of Tempest > Soul Eater > Heroman > Ouran > Skull Man > Jyu-Oh-Sei > Scrapped Princess > shit > RahXephon > dogshit > DTB S2 > Horseshit > E7
what about E7 AO?
Despite all that shortcoming Bones had with their shows, they still managed to have better budget than most studios ever dreamed of.
That and their godtier OST.
I assume it's worse than E7 ergo I'm not going to bother watching it.
It's their scheduling and animation staff that makes the biggest difference. Those two things have a bigger impact on how a show looks than budget.
>FMAB being above shit
>That and their godtier OST
Their best of the best mostly came from Yoko in my opinion, though.
It's a humongous improvement from the original, that's for certain.
Nobody can into mecha these days.
All new mecha fails. Japan is just tired of this crap.
Gundam only runs on old fans.
>"we swear its not e7: the show"
I'm ok with this. E7 was outstanding for what it was/wanted to be, and maybe this will help me forget how bad AO was.
WASN'T IT MEANT FOR THIS SEASON?!!
WHEN DOES IT START?
>E7 and RahXephon were awful
>calls Star Driver mediocre instead of outright shit
> /a/ doesn't like RahXephon
Why do I even bother coming here?
I will never understand the overwhelming hate for E7. So often its retarded dubfags who caught the first 10ish episodes on adult swim years back, and bitch about how renton and the kids were annoying or OMG SHORT HAIR EUREKA UGLY WTF LOL XD. They dont even realize that the entire fucking purpose of renton being the crews bitch for the first 1/5 of the show is to show character development slowly, and accurately portray how a random ass kid randomly slapped on a pirate ship with a dick ass captain would deal.
E7 was really good, It had some flaws, and the soccer episode was just confusing/hilarious but I thought it was really good.
>E7 was outstanding
Except that's wrong.
I can't wait for the E7fag vs SDfag vs RahXephonfag (or whatever they call themselves) vs CEfag vs Evafag vs Dandyfag shitstorm that's about to commence from this show.
Wait until they make Heroman S2. Then they'll have truly lost it.
I'm not going to have a shitstorm because I understand some people didnt' like E7. It was kind of strange to have a coming of age shounen adventure story, its not everyones cup of tea.
Wolf's Rain was absolutely fucking terrible.
>Nobody can into mecha these days.
>OMG SHORT HAIR EUREKA UGLY WTF LOL XD
I have every right to think that. That shit burned my eyes.
And Renton's dub voice is atrocious. It's proof that JYB should just stick to his boring monotone Ichigo voice.
Keep crying because my taste a best, bitch nigga
dude, calm down
I don't know, maybe a bit later who knows
>Nobody can into mecha these days.
You are full of shit
Let me guess, you like your MANime too
An exhaust and complete list of good Bones original shows:
Darker than Black season 1
>Nobody can into mecha these days.
Well, fuck you, Gundam Build Fighters is awesome.
Meh, at least they try to go for something original rather than yet another LN adaptation #54
Really what I hate the most are it's hardcore fans. I mean, I tried to like it. Trust me, I tried so hard to like E7 at the beginning, but for me it just went from boring to annoying to all out repulsive. But apparently it's such a requirement for breathing on this Earth to praise it liking the second coming of Jesus. Sorry, I just can't do that.
Nobody cares what you think of a fanbase, we're talking about anime.
>all of this RahXephon hate.
As expected of kiddies who think EVA and Code Geass actually good shows.
Why don't you just explain why you like it instead of throwing shitty insults around like a shitposter would.
I'm talking about anime too. I'm talking about the fact that E7 is shit and is way more overrated than it has any right to be.
There you go talking about the fans again
>Big strong giant robot
I like it.
Also that brown girl.
Why are you being stupid? I explained in that post as civilly as I possibly could why I did not like E7, which is an anime.
>Also that brown girl.
Will she end up being as annoying and ugly as Eureka? No thanks.
Worst girl confirmed.
Sounds like a newfaggot anime to me.
>Eva in Gundam colours with a pirate hat
Eva and One Piece ripoff.
I like these designs. They feel like a nice mix between 80's anime and now.
MC looks like a mix of Haruto from Valvrave from Banagher from Gundam Unicorn.
Except One Piece, in a really fucked up way, is actually good for shonenshit.
At least it's hand drawn.
>One Piece invented pirates
Didn't know the character designer did some hentai doujins.
Oh god, if this turns out to be a half assed Crossbone rip-off I'll be sad. Because the more I look at it the more I see that.
>At least it's hand drawn
It is in the promo art, the OP picture looks CG.
The trailer i watched a while back had the mecha hand drawn.
It's hand-drawn in OP's pic as well, there's a bigger version of it on the website.
It's going to be a ripoff of everything. It's going to be Unoriginality: The Animation.
Sounds like every mecha ever, since Gundam at least.
If that's hand drawn I'm impressed
Why does no one remember Patlabor?
Nearly every mecha is the same recycled bullshit with it's own special bullshit added in to find an excuse to call itself "original".
I can't wait for it to have even more stock footage than Star Driver.
At least the stock footage will be great.
The director already confirmed it will be hand drawn mecha .
I'm watching it for the songs, I hope they deliver something as good as Monochrome at least.
This is basically a Star Driver staff reunion, but with a more 'serious' take on the mecha genre this time. So, don't expect much fabulous stuff.
>LOL HIGH SCHOOL MC FINDS MYSTERIOUS ITEM AND ENCOUNTERS MYSTERIOUS GIRL THAT FOREVER CHANGES HIS LIFE
Fuck off. When will the Elevens stop eating this shit up?
Absolutely never. Though Mahou Sensou seems to be failing quite miserably.
So you have incredibly shit tastes
No and No
You know what other mecha series has won awards?
Do you even know what I'm talking about? It's an anime that everyone hates due to completely false accusations, but is secretly brilliant. Something you would never expect from BONES. Something so beautiful from such a shit studio.
Good lord these GBF faggots are cancerous. I bet none of them have actually watched a Gundam series beyond G.
>I will never understand the overwhelming hate for E7.
Nostalgiafags overrate it heavily
The setting, characters and story are uninspired and shitty as fuck.
Everything in it was done better from all the shows it ripped off
Really fucking shitty fanbase.
I can go on.
I'm watching Zeta right now actually.
>It's an anime that everyone hates due to completely false accusations
You keep telling yourself that /b/ro
Thank you for understanding my frustration. It's really hard to explain this to E7fags when all they do is use "lalala I can't hear you" as a rebuttal.
And you keep being deluded, f/a/g. This anime is an incredible journey unlike any other. And besides, it can't be any worse than you're favorite anime.
>This anime is an incredible journey unlike any other
I've taking dumps that's not unlike any other.
I bet you haven't a clue what I'm talking about.
That dump of yours was most likely the most beautiful dump ever. And that's something to be proud of. You should love it.
>When will BONES ever realize that they just can't into anime?
no, they never learn. Should have stayed with Sunrise
are we looking at this from a mecha, or show aspect?
because I was alright with the mecha portions of the show, but the entire series was absolute garbage
>but the entire series was absolute garbage
Nice shit taste
>Nice shit taste
it was woefully mediocre from start to finish(subpar as some parts in fact) and the only reason why I stuck with it was because of the above average mecha
Exactly. You're too ashamed to admit it. It's amazing.
Disagree entirely. It was a solid series that knew what it was and didn't suffer from the same pitfalls as other modern mecha series did. There's nothing inherently wrong about being standard if you do it right, the characters and story were interesting enough to keep me entertained in between the mecha portions.
I don't know about you but I would watch the fuck out of this for that delicious jungle fever.
Once again. Nice shit taste
Doesn't matter how shit the show is. Name one BONES show with a shit/subpar soundtrack.
it was as good at a 5/10 series can be m8
MJP was bland and generic through and through, with only the mecha aspect to carry it through, but even then it wasn't anything special.
I watched it because I was starved for a mecha, plain and simple
no, I'd pretty much say the same exact thing for Valvrave, though i did find it slightly more interesting, with not as good mecha
I don't see an issue with it. It's just a glorified toy commercial with Gundam references and Ramba Ral.
He's same the person that would shitpost in Valvrave threads. Notice his lack of proper punctuation, use of smug reaction images, greentexting something you said with no proper response, and saying that people have shit taste
I really need to rewatch that.
Star Driver was uninspired poor Utena clone. Even Mawaru Penguindrum was better.
>though i did find it slightly more interesting
Your opinion means nothing now, kid.
I don't understand. Why can't we all love each other? Why do we have to be at each other's throats all the time? Aren't we allowed to have opinions?
>The most vital rule of 4chan is that you are NEVER under any circumstances allowed to have an opinion of your own
>it was as good at a 5/10 series can be m8
Once again I disagree.
>MJP was bland and generic through and through
Using bland and generic to describe anything nowadays is pretty fucking retarded given how nothing is inherently original anymore. Execution is all that matters.
>I watched it because I was starved for a mecha, plain and simple
Well that's your problem, I found something to like about it more than the mecha battles, you were probably better waiting for someone to upload a montage of all the battles on youtube then sitting through a 24 episode series.
No. Get out.
Why the hell are you listening to thesee guys? Most of the posters here are E7 haters due to the childish fanbase E7 has.
>Using bland and generic as criticism for anything
I actually enjoyed the story and characters more so than the mecha battles themselves.
Mecha is shit.
Not really, it's the same 2 people still trying to force that shit. Notice how the term niwaka only appears in the same sentence as kyoani on /a/. Feel free to ignore them.
>Using bland and generic to describe anything nowadays is pretty fucking retarded given how nothing is inherently original anymore. Execution is all that matters.
This. There's nothing original about Gundam Build Fighters but the show is incredibly well done nonetheless.
>Most of the posters here are E7 haters due to the childish fanbase E7 has.
Can you blame them? They're more than childish, they're full on cunts.
>Aren't we allowed to have opinions?
>though i did find it slightly more interesting,
Though I am a big fan of E7 and would put it on my top 25 shows, I fucking hate the fanbase because most of them are either nostalgiafags or just toonami fags. E7 threads here end up filled with very shallow discussion (e.g. remember ep 20 liek OMG). Can't blame the hate for them.
there character designs and overall art direction was plain as fuck and really didn't help it in the slightest
interesting was the wrong word, should have said "entertaining"
besides the last "good" mecha to come out was probably Unicorn, and even then it was your standard gundam, but it just so happened to have incredible production value and a great soundtrack to boot
Let's also not forget the incessant
>"OMG Renten x Eureka GR8ST LUV SOTRY EBR <33"
That goes on during "discussion" both inside this website and out.
>besides the last "good" mecha to come out was probably Unicorn
You're just making it worse for yourself
I dunno, I like their mecha more than their non-mecha series.
Though admittedly, RahXephon is essentially an Eva copy.
>Criticizing anything for being bland and generic
>VVV is entertaining
>The last good mecha was Gundam Unicorn
There's so much wrong with this post
please, give me a better mecha than Unicorn in the past 5 years.
it's production value and soundtrack are more than enough to set it apart from other series, amd the fighters were well crafted and it pretty much ties with every other recent mecha for having a less than stellar narrative.
>It has high production values so that makes it good.
in a way, yes, if I have a to choose between a mediocre series with a low budget, and a mediocre series with a big budget, I'm going to choose the latter 10 times out of 10
In case you have not already figured out from his comments and criticisms he's a fucking retard.
Are we still pretending Unicorn is bad?
It's the 0083 of our time. It's not terrible but, yeah.
I liked Xam'd too. Yeah, the story was mediocre, but the OST was great and best girl won.
People stopped pretending after episode 4
Was Rahxephon really bad? I watched it a long time ago so i don't really remember much.
The show will look great (Bones), sound great (Kosaki), and be well written (Enokido). There's no need to be so upset, /a/.
>Though admittedly, RahXephon is essentially an Eva copy.
Superficially, maybe. At heart the shows are enormously different. It's also better than Eva at just about everything, and that's what matters.
But unlike 0083 it has good characters and an entertaining story.
People are still praising Unicorn like the second coming? It's like 2010 again.
>people on /a/ hate Rahxephon
>people on /a/ actually think it's an eva clone
Are you serious? Or just retarded?
So one episode with pacing issues made the whole series bad?
>it has good characters and an entertaining story.
it's currently the best most recent gundam in many years
>inb4 GBF fags actually think their toy commercial was legitimately good
we're not praising Unicorn, it just so happens recent mecha is at an all time low and it just happens to be the lesser of two evils if you had to select "best recent mecha"
Episode 5 wasn't good either and had some moments of QUALITY too.
confirmed for shit
>it's either bad or a masterpiece
>everything is black and white.
Oh man! If that was the ONLY problem with that episode.
>and be well written (Enokido)
Ya blew it.
You forgot the writing.
>The show will look great (Bones), sound great (Kosaki), and be well written (Enokido).
>and be well written (Enokido)
Whelp. It'll look good and sound good like every BONES show at least.
Every Gundam ever.
There's not really a single character that stands out in Unicorn, well scratch that Zimmerman is pretty good but the rest...eh
>and an entertaining story.
If you can call it that.
Are you implying that Gundam dialogues were ever good?
Rahfags sure are pathetic.
>Series Composition for Utena, FLCL, Diebuster, Star Driver
>Screenplays for Rahxephon, Eva
>Not a good writer
He's the best writer regular in the industry, hands down.
you didn't understand evangelion if you thought rah was a clone of it
>the best, most original writer of the industry is suddely hated
So we have come to this.
rahxephon was a good watch and I am glad I saw it, but it's hardly anything substantial or important.
it was just good, not bad, not great, just good
Sure they are.
Yeah...having Star Driver as a credentials is not a good selling point neither is Rahxephon or Diebuster.
>the best, most original writer of the industry is suddely hated
But we're not talking about Kuroda! We're talking about that hack Endo
Sure they are. You just have bad taste, is all.
>Diebuster, Star Driver, Rahxephon, Eva
These shows weren't particularly well-written ESPECIALLY Star Driver so I have no idea why you're mentioning them as if it means something.
The only show from that list with decent writing is Utena, the rest are straight up garbage.
>>the best, most original writer of the industry is suddely hated
Not even in his prime.
Nah, Star Driver was pretty poorly written as was Diebuster
>give me a better mecha than Unicorn in the past 5 years.
>it just so happens recent mecha is at an all time low and it just happens to be the lesser of two evils if you had to select "best recent mecha"
That doesn't make any fucking sense.
Not even close.
Better than Unicorn at least
>implying Build Fighters isn't legitimately good on its own merits
Better than the one UC ultimately got
It's not. It's Gundam for jaded hipsters
The real UC ending is CCA.
I liked Xam'd as well.
If only for Nakiami. I cried bitch tears when she sealed herself.
Just keep telling yourself that.
implying you don't
The fuck does niwaka means anyway?
>Japan is just tired of this crap
>A movie about giant robots and monsters
>Tops box office in japan
>Really fucking shitty fanbase
>ever using this as an excuse
You faggots know they made other mecha than Eureka, right?
For real though, it's the real ending to the main UC story.
Everything after is just irrelevant and might as well have been AU.
I only fondly remember the first half, where it was a fun adventurous anime with a little mystery mixed in
and then they tried to explain everything with BONES tier writing and I became incredibly disinterested very very quickly
>ALL DIS FUCKING SHIT TASTE
Got a problem with me buddy?
I don't, i thought Victory was sort of okay.
But that's not the point anyway.
Still waiting on Majestic Prince sesaon2
I Like Valvrave
And that Captain Earth Mech looks like he has a pirate hat.
Gonna do something about it, fag?
>As expected of kiddies who think EVA and Code Geass actually good shows.
I like both those and Rahxephon though
MUH BONES. And by MUH BONES I mean MUH BONER
How stupid and new, and perhaps, autistic are you?
ITT: Shitposters shit posting shitposters shitposting trolls trolling shitposters
That shit wasn't canon. Victory was UC end.
Sunrise's policy: Filmed = Official.
Holy shit MJPfag, do us all a favor and kill yourself. No one on /a/ and /m/ likes you.
>Totally not a samefag
He's a shit poster. I like MJP and I was one of the people he linked.
The word "canon" doesn't exist in Japan. Like it or not G-Saviour is official.
She didn't deserve her fate.
I secretly hope everyday that because she took all the evils of the world upon herself, no one will age, and in 100 years when she wakes up, she can see them all again.
>I like MJP
I do too. It's just that what people would call him in Valvrave threads.
Oh you meant HIM.
I completely forgot about that faggot.
