Minnie May is hot.
Well, you usually have to be when you're a child prostitute.
Top-tier rape material. Dunno why that comes to mind, I love her and all, but 10/10, would rape and leave her to go cry to Rally.
>Implying you can handle Minnie May
Too bad seeing Beans brick of a dick scared Rally away from men.
Rape is still rape. Whether I'd survive it or not is immaterial.
Rally a best.
But that just means you vet to be balls deep in a legal loli while watching her and Misty or Becky lez out. It's for the best.
Best celibate lesbian.
But that would imply you'd still be the rapist at the end.
Surely GSC will get BDs in the near future.
Not to say it was a completely bad ending, but man it pissed me off that Misty went back to Goldie.
>We will never see the race between Rally in a Viper vs Bean in a Mustang vs Riff-Raff in a Cobra animated
>tfw It'll never be animated beyond a 3-ep OVA
>no animated Goldie molesting Rally while her dad watches
RALLY VINCENT'S PUBES ARE A WONDER OF THE UNIVERSE
I swear to you Rally, one day I will own a '67 Shelby Cobra.
I've animated every single chapter of the manga...in my head.
Minnie May is lewd.
I've been wondering, since GC takes place in the Sonodaverse, which Gall Force is Rally related to?
Literally the second chapter.
>not getting the glorious 68
Kenichi Sonoda is the best.
Really love this guy's stuff whats his new series?
Well. The OVA didn't prepare me for that.
wow, sesame street
Please based Sonoda, give us another.
IIRC, his newest manga is fantasy in the 60s or some shit like that. But there are no scans anywhere. I'll have to buy them myself and put them here some day.
And Sandy is a miracle of the universe.
Is Burst worth buying?
Never been a fan, but fuck it, it's Sonoda.
Not sure. I liked it, but mostly because it's Sonoda.
Knowing Sonoda, it must be filled with whacky shit. Must be awesome. If I'm correct with the 60s thing (take this with a grain of salt), must be filled with retro gun porn too.
You get to school (or at work, whatever) and are faced with this.
Do my work I guess. Gotta get that paycheque.
Make sure it's not a Boomer.
Speaking of BGC...anyone checked the light novel yet?
Does it have a translation?
The only thing I have besides the boxset is a pdf of this. Was going to get the ultimate edition blu-rays, but ran out of money. Fucking holidays.
>Someone on /a/ other than me has actually read canon god
Well I can go to bed happy
>Download Gunsmith Cats off mangatrader.
>Notice that the pages are all flipped.
>Everyone's left handed.
Fuck this gay world.
>Does it have a translation?
Not yet. I might try it myself if I ever get it imported.
>Was going to get the ultimate edition blu-rays, but ran out of money. Fucking holidays.
AE said they were gonna make a commercial release of the BDs eventually.
And Sonoda should totally make a BGC manga of his own, without AIC's faggotry interfering with him.
It was this exact chapter that turned me into a lolicon.
Is Gunsmith Cats burst worth reading?
I don't want another Battle Angel Alita: Last Order.
>AE said they were gonna make a commercial release of the BDs eventually.
Thank god for small miracles.
Oh, I did forget that I bought one of these, well, I'm not sure if they're doujins by him or just multiple artists paying respect to his works, but a thick manga compilation of something like that. Some pretty good things in there, I should see if it's uploaded anywhere.
I doubt it is. Most of what was scanned for BGC was lost when geocities went down, or when all those college pages were taken down too. And trying to get the source material proper (like pic related) would require CERN-levels of research.
Also, Priss' ass is humongous.
Just give it a read. I mean, yeah, yeah, the ending, whatever, if you liked the original GSC, Burst is worth a read.
A treasure trove of more recent Sonoda stuff.
This pic makes me happy.
Well, it's not like it's super rare, so I figured it might be on sadpanda, and it was:
I need to buy more of these, having physical copies of Sonoda stuff makes me insanely happy.
Huh, I never bothered to check those out besides the covers. Silly me.
But there's still lots of stuff that needs to be recovered.
>You will never pull the pin on this sex grenade
This one, however, is perfect, detailing all the work on Gall Force.
To be fair, I wouldn't have thought twice about them either if it wasn't for them being on Mandarake and sold as being drawn by Sonoda.
And me having the money for it, of course.
Has there ever been an anime/manga with canon child prostitute as one of the main characters other than GSC?
Skinny ass Ford is shameful! 0/10 would not drive! Rally should join the once glorious Pontiac Motor Division of the General Motors Master Racers!
I'm still hunting this Nene doujin.
A. Fuck you, the Shelby Cobra is the shit.
B. >tfw we will never see EiKichi Onizuka vs bean Bandit in a road race
>any Pontiac apart from a 1978 Firebird Trans Am
I wish you luck in this hunt. The more Sonoda that isn't lost to history, the better future we achieve.
Hey, at least it has some advantages over the Ford. Those F-body cars could always out maneuver the Mustangs that the line was built in response to. I'd much rather have maneuverability over speed in an urban environment where one must always take hard corners or weasel their way through traffic.
>at least $130k
Well fuck there goes that dream.
Oh I remember THAT image in particular....
back when anime and manga weren't that popular in the US, around 1999 or so I went to the comic store and found some a Gunsmith Cats manga in comic format (you know, like your usual Superman comic). It only had like 2 or 3 chapters and I was baffled with the plot, the drawings, everything. It was the part when Bulletproof bandanna and at the beginning it had that exact picture of Minnie May.
the manga told me she was a big big slut but there was something about her that aroused me to no end. those 7,8 pubes that just peek through... the eyes, everything's so well-made (at least for a 11-12yo teenager.
80's designs at their best!
its the hair, its all very rounded and smooth. No sharp edges or angles.
He's good, but panders way too much.
I can only remember the ending that told us that is was cool to be brainwashed into a lesbian sex slave.
>>Sonoda did this in 94
My reaction goes right to left
You need a little bush every now and then.
If only to keep things in perspective.
I've heard that women mature somewhat faster than men, and I figure that hormones might have something to do with it too. I certainly don't think anyone is complaining or disputing this either... so... yeah, she has pubes and her body has already entered puberty.
Deal with it? I guess?
So yeah, sorry for the double post but I'm cutting my marathon of Bubblegum Crisis short, retiring to bed at 4 in the morning here and hoping to see more bush later in the morning.
I've dealt with it.
Don't hate me.
Literally worse than Hitler
You're a terrible human being.
More like, it was cool to abandon your friends/girlfriends to a life as a lesbian sex slave to a criminal monster.
Not cool, Sonada. Not cool.
Is that from mango?
Please answer, this is really important
You are a great man.
Are you proud of yourself for encouraging such debauchery?
Puberty is an evil that needs to be purged from the world.
You can't be this stupid.
GSC Burst is one of those instances where the ending makes me regret ever having wasted time on a series as a whole. Fuck you, Sonoda, you edgy piece of shit. Olol perfect mind altering wonderdrug my ass.
meh, we all know the real star
What the hell am I looking at here? Pulp Fiction and the evil queen from Snow White?
She's like 17
She is 18.
Shaving was invented hundreds of years ago.
onizuka is something everyone shold read at least once.
Ah, the good old days.
Back when people didn't care about things like "muh purity" on female leads.
Yes, yes it is.
I miss those days so bad, but they'll never come back, will they?
Hey, I didn't particularly agree with the ending either, bu you can't say it doesn't make some kind of sense that a drug addict relapses.
Anyway, there's nowhere near enough Becky, she's too cute herself to have this little fanart.
Going through doujins of his doujin group.
Never have I seen a rape this funny.
Wow. Didn't know Sonada was a pedophile.
This is actually the first 2D cheese pizza ive ever seen in an official magma.
>17 year old >pedo
Nigga you dumb
I believe you but that doesn't dismiss the fact that Japanese Mangaka just give characters legal ages while still making them look like little kids. Its just a loop hole. But it works so whatever...
>Gunsmith cats slowing getting more attention from /a/
Hell, a Kenichi Sonoda thread overall feels like a small miracle. GSC is my favorite manga, so that it started the thread just makes it even better for me.
There's still a difference between loli and pedo. Doubly so when it's a legitimate part of her backstory.
Anyway, more Becky Farrah. I'd ride her bean.
>complaining about pandering
I'll never get this
I like to imagine anyone who has ever operated a vhs in their life has at least HEARD of BGC
Fuck, nb for incorrect images.
VHS was dying out 13 years ago now, it's pretty plausible that much of /a/ is younger in their anime fandom than that.
To be honest, while I was from the VHS era, I wouldn't know of it myself if it wasn't for seeing it on Starz Action in the middle of the day once.
>You'll never run a successful gun store/bounty hunting agency with a child prostitute and a likely lesbian lover AND a burger joint
And I love him exactly for that.
I want he to blow me up.
Indeed, it's nowhere near a bad thing.
Mostly because he's basically pandering to himself and his love of guns, cars, and women.
This still isn't getting scanned
And that's why he's a bro.
How is Gall Force?
Same here. I was sorta wondering how they could get away with it even if they say she's seventeen. I then realized I was a lolicon and started looking for loli on the internet.
Pretty awesome. Depressing too in a way.
Blonde Rally still feels weird.
But goddamn she is a babe either way.
Also, thanks to this thread I had a dream last night of visiting Minnie May as a prostitute. I can't say I disliked it.
You know who's a babe, though? Fucking Goldie.
Would you let her teach you how to aim and shoot?
Man, I love petite girls who are actually much older than they look.
I hope I can marry a girl like that someday.
It really is a crying shame there's almost literally no fanart of her
I don't recall anyone in that international doujin making stuff of her either. For shame.
Or any of anyone who isn't Rally or Minnie May, for that matter.
Misty and Becky are great too, damnit.
Misty in the original manga reminded me a bit of Priss. I guess it was the hair.
We all agree that Beans 1969 C3 ZL1 was way better than Rally's 1967 GT500, right?
Minnie May and Rally switch body types. Better or worse?
>Blonde Rally still feels weird.
This was the first cartoon I fapped to. I was a lolicon before I even knew what that was.
>tfw Chicago has went to shit since Rally retired
This guy really knows how to match title chapters and images.
Stop with the mangareader shit.
Cheaper to make a reproduction
>didn't notice it
Now I have to go back and save them all from a different place.
Oh well, not like they're unpleasant to look at.
Oh man I love that shit.
The remake wasn't too bad either.
I remember watching that dubbed. Man the blonde had a whacky voice. Annoying as fuck.
You know there was a PnP RPG made based on this? Keep meaning to run a game of it
This song is so damn catchy and good.
Then it wouldn't be a GT500, stupid.
Short haired Nene was great.
If there's two things I desperately want, it's to own a hardcopy of that game book and to run a game of it. Unfortunately, student loans and rural living prevent either of those for now.
Just get a PDF it's easier.
I found a copy a while back.
Would fuck until my dick broke off.
Interesting though that she had a Russian name.
Japs hate Rooskies.
You're not gonna get a real one. Plus a reproduction is easier on the wallet and can be more fuel efficient. Hell make it electric. Have fun.
The bestest. One day he'll be put in charge of design and general direction of an action show and then anime will be saved.
>You're not gonna get a real one. Plus a reproduction is easier on the wallet and can be more fuel efficient. Hell make it electric. Have fun.
The guy who wants one actually has enough cash to get one.
He's just having issues getting one to the barren island he lives on.
I have a PDF, but the collector in me isn't satisfied.
>Plus a reproduction is easier on the wallet and can be more fuel efficient. Hell make it electric. Have fun.
What's next, give it an automatic transmission? Rally would be dissappointed.
Sonoda and Akiyama thought Japan would become a new United States back in the 80s. That's why you got Leon McNichol and a bunch of ther foreigners/foreign-looking people in the series.
Yeah well I wouldn't want to buy something so old to be honest. Especially an American car.
Yanks rarely get things right in terms of machines. When they do they get it VERY right. But most of the time they just embarrass themselves.
Had an old morris minor for years. Thing worked wonderfully but no amount of glorious engineering prevents reality.
Metal fatigue, rust, the frame and engine just wearing out with age. Plus fuel consumption wasn't too great.
Reproduction you make yourself is safer, will consume less time and money in parts plus better fuel economy.
Kind of funny, since from what I hear a lot of Americans thought Japan was going to take over the USA in the 80's.
I figured they were just obsessed with foreigners.
Automatics? Fuck no. I'm not some burgerclap. Besides automatics fail more frequently and are expensive to fix.
>Reproduction you make yourself is safer, will consume less time and money in parts plus better fuel economy.
You don't really "get" it, do you?
Not really. I'm a pragmatic fellow at heart.
I'm into HEMA but I'm working on making a suit of armour based on Greenwich armour taking into account modern materials and knowledge.
So yeah. I don't really "get it" when it comes to people obsessing over old things.
>"To cling to something past its usefulness is unseemly"
This is the difference between someone who likes cars and someone who loves them.
>Going through collecting the chapter heading pages
>wind up just reading through it anyway
Still feels as good as reading it for the first time.
One can not help but wonder how insanely huge his cock must be. He must have dick enough for everyone.
Somewhere around this at the smallest.
jebus christ organ destroyer HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!....
Bean... You're a great driver, but work on the one liners.
Since Japanese don't really distinguish between the letters "L" and "R", does that mean Rally is really Larry?
Larry is actually what her name was supposed to be.
But it was lost in translation and we like Rally better.
Yep, confirmed by Sonoda himself.
And yet, everyone still calls her Rally because it sounds cooler.
Oh god here it comes.
would you buy Rallys guns /a/
I need a DDR step for this.
man rally must really take after her mom cause she does not look indian at all
I wonder if Sonoda is still insisting that it's Larry, of if he's accepted that everyone will always call her Rally reguardless.
Slutty as hell female leads are so great.
Fuck pure virgins.
So did Sonoda work on Bubble Gum Crisis? Is it any good? I've never seen it.
>Larry is actually what her name was supposed to be.
Well goddamn. I said that as a joke, but now after all these years I find out it's true.
One of my castles in the air would be funding a Gunsmith Cats videogame. It'd be an open-world game set in "Windy City" (Chicago renamed to keep the lawyers off our backs), set as a sequel to Burst with Minnie-May getting bored now that her sprog's in school and badgering Rally to get back into the bounty-hunting business. You'd make full and proper use of the open-world environment because you'd have to pursue bail-jumpers across complex terrain, so there'd be actual constructive use of the sandbox as opposed to just aping GTA. Rewards would be scaled according to the non-lethality of your captures and takedowns using Rally's excellent aim not to score headshots but to maim trigger fingers and shoot off firing hammers. You could also flip perspective ro "Riding Bean" missions where you have to carry bail-jumpers on car chases across the state line.
So GTA where you are a loli and can get into lesbian sex, gangbangs with niggers and all the other shit?
I think he only did the character designs. It's still great, though, if you can excuse the fact that only half of it got made so it ends somewhat normally. IIRC, 2040 was made to tell the rest of the story, but it's not as good. It's not as bad as some say, but it's definately not the same calibur.
You know what, fuck the Cobra, my money's going towards this.
Yes he did. And yes to your second question.
I don't know why I could never get into BGC, but absolutely loved Adam Warren's take on it.
Sonoda's current manga is Bullet the Wizard. I once asked the guys over at Vertical about it when they had one of their "what shall we license next?" Facebook threads, and the guy said that he's read a bit of it himself and thought that it wasn't very good.
Well, the guy from Vertical also hates LoGH, so there's that.
I wish he had made it into a full series. Aside of Priss, it was decent enough.
If you start getting a bit too trigger-happy and start wantonly killing perps and bystanders, there's a series of consequences - at first, your friends in the police are happy to dismiss it as self-defence... then start covering it up as self-defence... then getting every anxious and fretful about how they're up to their necks in abetting an emergent serial killer and looking to jump ship while still forced to go along with you. Killing too many bystanders, though, doesn't result in a Game Over off-hand, but opens up a new subplot where that moustached detective (I forget his name) starts tailing you to catch you in the act, so you have to watch out if his car's about when you're on a mission.
Indeed, but one of the finest animes of the 80's.
Screw that noise. It's all about the 71 Monte Carlo. (outfitted with a 502 Big Bloc, of course)
Catty is the best Gall.
So it'd be like hard mode, almost a non-standard game over in a way? Make it so that if you get to that point you can't complete the main quest properly and you instead get a bad end (not nessiccarily ONE bad end, but the only ends you can get are bad) and you've got a deal.
Or maybe if you get caught Goldie will bail you out by having one of her goons go in and say they doped you up with Kerosene, but even that should have a limited number of uses.
Rally's greatest enemy in the game will not be Goldie or other criminal networks, but Gun Control pressure groups (*hissssssssssssss!*)
>So it'd be like hard mode, almost a non-standard game over in a way?
That's a good way of looking at it. Make too much of a mess and you need to start behaving whiter-than-white to stop the cops from pulling you up on any technicality they can think of. There could probably be an Achievement somewhere in still being able to complete the main quest under those conditions.
Those are probably Rally's night terrors.
"Uhhnhh... AWB... arrrgggh... ten-round maximum mags... AIIIIIIIIIEEE!!!!!!! NO PISTOL GRIPS?!?!?!?! Phew... just a dream..."
I could kiss you for this idea, man.
What is the main quest, then?
Bath salts are the new craze sweeping Chicago, destroying the peace that Kerosene held together. Now you have to stop the movement of these drugs into the city.
Rally made a bad call at the end of Burst. She supported Goldie because she believed that she was the best option to prevent the city from being consumed in an all-out mob war. However, she didn't stop the war, just kicked it down the road - Goldie now has total unified control of vice in Windy City, but her order is actually very precarious. Previously the different gangs balanced each other out in a sort of hostile equilibrium, but investing it all in one person makes it if anything totter unsteadily on one point, and it'll soon all come crashing down as there's always some shit-heel who wants to make a name for himself by taking out the top dog.
Rally's entry into bounty-hunting comes at a time when there's a big crime wave by petty crooks not under Goldie's direct control. They're getting hefty bails posted by a variety of third parties that are fronts by a new criminal organisation that's looking to muscle out Goldie. Rally finds herself caught in the middle as the consequences of her actions start playing out.
I like it. At first it's taking down different gangs, but once you realize they're about to overrun everything, then it kicks into high gear.
Who do I give my money to?
The game will be expensive though, because you'll need to officially license every single small-arm and muscle car ever made in America.
...No need to be such a party pooper.
Not at all, but hi-fideltiy cars and cannons is part of GSC's appeal, I wouldn't want to have "Samuelle Colp" handguns.
That's true. It wouldn't be GSC at all if we had to drive Shelly Rattlesnakes or something.
Fuck it, let's just all get these jackets made.
