Now : As the Season draws to the close, can we finally decide which was the best mecha that aired this cour?
AZ, tbh the rest was average, at least Aldnoah met my expectations
>le le it was so shite xD
muh perfect mechanical eye does everything for me and all the character relationship bad as gook dramas
The only show that stayed true to what it wanted to do. Very light plot and strong comedy. It's sexual jokes work very enjoyable and easy for anyone to laugh along with. Only faggots that haven't watched it or autsitic fags who are too disabled to appreciate the great joke this show provides will try to criticize this AOTS quality show.
terrible shit plastic toy advertisement. The characters are gay the gunpla's "special abilities" AKA variation of trans am were rotten to the core. Trying to show growth of 3 different characters in only 2 seasons isn't gonna work.
Still not finished will not comment other than the art is really good
Tomino the old faggot has lost it. The art was shit. The mech design is faggoty and it tried to develop 500 different characters at once leaving nothing complete and resulting a whole mess of nothing. Tomino can't keep up with not having 50 episodes and it shows. GReco is a shit.
>The only show that stayed true to what it wanted to do.
Fafner > Cross Ange > Aldnoah Zero > GBFT > immeasurable gap > G-Autista
As far as mecha fights are concerned, only Fafner and A/Z had interesting fights. CA mostly had repeat of the same thing,but at least its fights had emotional value.
Overall quality, story, music and action I would say: Fafner (hands down) >>>>>>>>>> Aldnoah >>>>>>>>G-Reco>>>>>>GBTF>>>>>>>Cross ange
If judging on how much I like each series
Fafner (again, hands down) >>>>>>>>>>>>>> GBTF (not as good as GBF, but it has it's moments like Tryon 3) >>>>>>Aldnoah >>>>>>>Cross Ange >>>>>>>G-reco (I only watched it because I'm a mecha nut. somethings, especially narrative sensibility was a jumble of mess)
The pacing is shit and I'm butthurt about waiting four episodes between "Soushi and Kazuki you have to get in the robots" and Nicht and Sein actually doing anything, but at least it's not a trainwreck yet.
It died as it lived: filled with rape and silly antics. It wasn't a masterpiece, but at least it was entertaining.
I'm so fucking mad right now.
Dropped out of boredom after the episode where Yuuma almost got mugged.
Dropped when they got to the moon colony thing, but kept catching random bits of the ending while waiting for Fafner to stream, so, I'm glad Manny got a happy ending.
Got a robot at the last minute, was a better mecha show than Aldnoah.
literally fujoshit for downy fucks with SHIT taste
fukuda's shit-tier self-insert ruined what would have been a good show
What the fuck happened? BF was good, and then somehow BFT is TOTAL FUCKING GARBAGE.
meanders all over the place. Mediocre
>Poorly animated and boring final fight
>Plot points get sidelined and never resolved
>Most of the cast does nothing as Tusk and Ange save the day
>The only show that stayed true to what it wanted to do
Each fight is different and all of them are resolved with tactics and strategies
Each fight is repeat of the same and all of them are resolved with clash of beam swords, thoughtless shooting of guns and screaming at each other. Basically Sengoku Basara/Musou in space.
>resolved with tactics and strategies
If Inaho asspulls can be called "tactics" then sure. Him doing inhuman observations is no different from the Villkiss pulling a new power out of its ass.
G-Reco, despite its flows, was a good, fun and lively adventure. Love the character and the attention to detail.
Aldnoah still suffer from its artistic direction (grey color and 3D mecha) that's make the visuals to artificial but have a more interesting story than its first season.
Cross Ange, like G-Reco, was a fun ride despite the obvious flow. Really enjoy the character, especially Ange.
GBFT is the first season without the love letter to gundam. and like the previous season, the tournament setting kill any kind of suspense right from the beginning.
>Each fight is different and all of them are resolved with tactics and strategies
Yeah, which is why the refrigerator, Mazuurek, and the lightning mech all just activated their respective fields and walked forward right?
All of the AZ mechs rely on gimmicks for the express purpose of letting imaho and his cyborg eye look good, or did you forget the "fight" where inaho has his magic eye multibox all the UFE mechs to kill the replicator mech?
Quick thinking and utilizing tactics are all fine and good but you seem to forget that AZ presents itself as a RR war drama. In which case pilots winning due to better piloting skills fits much more thematically than gimmicks made to glorify the highschooler that is the UFE's one-man army. I guess I can't say I expected much from someone who doesn't even know the difference between tactics and strategy.
>Gundam Build Fighters Try because I bought some of the impressive HGUC models.
Can I ask you what does HGUC have to do with Try? Crossbone? Otherwise it completely ignores that part of Gundam, instead comes with shitty super robot wannabes(Tryon 3 being only good one) and Exia copies. There's barely any UC in the show, the Zaku team were just jobbers too who didn't get to do anything. The first season actually did show love towards UC such as Gyan which actually got a popularity boost thanks to it.
Actually most Try kits seem to be completely new molds such as The End, which is quite impressive. Whether your like it or not is different case.
Fafner starts out similar but the further you get in the more it diverges.
If you want the biggest difference Eva is "GET IN THE ROBOT" while Fafner is "PLEASE STAY OUT OF THE ROBOT"
Are you kidding me? The fights in A/Z are easily the worst part of the show. The battle happenings are literally just plot convenience on levels that put even Gundam SEED to shame.
Cross Ange is the best.
People who hate it do so because they either didn't focus on the side characters... lol.. the word side means so little to people.
Or they wanted more yuri.
OR haven't watched it.
For instance, this guy clearly didn't watch it past episode 1.
G-Reco wasn't good. It tried to do a lot and make things become progressively more epic in a world sense but the characters really really really brought the show down. They're all terrible.
Build Fighters Try.... the characters weren't fun and the fights weren't fun. It's a glorified commercial.
Aldnoah Zero was interesting. I won't deny that there were some genuinely intriguing moments, but that's all it had. No real substance... just weirdly focused on drama.
Fafner... No clue.
Fafner > AZ > CA > GBFT
Best girl and loli steals the show.
So do 3 other people inlcuding. I miss Tsug's crazy-faces.
