>>123724992 Enjoyment depends on how much you can pay attention.
G Reco delivers 'realistic' dialogue in the sense that conversations sound natural, and the characters know what they're talking about with each other - this comes at the cost of not hand holding the viewer with exposition. If you can keep on top of what's going on you should have fun.
If you've seen Zeta or Victory, expect it to have a similar approach to storytelling but with the kill 'em all toned down.
This cunt is a fucking lying piece of shit. By realistic he meant the characters doesn't over react, even in situation that they really should have a huge reaction. You can have a character who talks like a complete retard, suddenly talks normally and no one say anything about it, no one gives a fuck and they just fucking accept it.
It is a shameless toy commercial that just keep pumping out new factions and new robots. Faggots keep saying PAY ATTENTION. That is like saying pay attention in a long winded boring speech.
>>123724992 It's better than Aldnoah but that isn't saying much considering how bad Aldnoah/Zero is in just about every department.
It suffers in pacing, execution and dialogue. Everything else is decent enough. The dialogue flows in a way that you have to piece things together based on context rather than straight up info dumps(only true for the first half, second half is almost nothing but exposition you'd have to be brain damaged not to be able to follow it). The pacing is fast as hell it's like a 50 episode show having each episode chopped in half. Main characters development is subtle and seen more through action than him whining about it, checks his rifle to make sure it works properly, goes for disarms, gets hysterical after being told his love interest is his sister, sometimes kills grunts with long range fire when forced to, refuses to use OP shit, gets tired of war, the end. Also it's an adventure not a war drama, so the main draw would be the set pieces and overall world it takes place in.
The atmosphere is comfy as hell from start to finish(which is odd because even Turn A had tension), the show spends episode after episode reminding you that these people(being fucking everyone) are completely green when it comes to warfare so general fuckingaround, comedic screw ups and people just not knowing how things work is the rule of thumb.
It looks good and a break from the now generic space nazi and UC gundam rehashes is a nice(and well needed) change of pace for Gundam but it's a unremarkably average show.
>>123728577 Her speech was getting better until the Dorette fleet was introduced. Then she got that big ass headache and became lucid again. The crew underestimated him since Capital Guard is not a military, they're linesmen. Cumpa Rosita the man orchestrating this entire thing let them go to mobilize his army. MC follows the crew around to get info as he suspects(and is right) that they aren't really space pirates. This is cleared up by episode 4.
>>123724992 I think G-Reco's a great show. Certainly not flawless (more on that later), but more often than not misunderstood by modern anime watchers who have no tolerance for Tomino's "80s" directing style (slow but deliberate worldbuilding, explaining things via offhand dialogue rather than obvious exposition, no long "angsty" silences, no over-the-top "epic" emotional moments, etc.).
G-Reco is straight-up, pure 80s mecha, but done with modern animation. Because of that, most its qualities are misinterpreted as "bad writing", when in fact it's the audiences' inability to grasp many of its subtleties through the right frame of mind.
Now, before I sound (any more) like a shill for this show, let me point out its ACTUAL main flaw: The pacing is very, very rushed (Tomino even admitted this in the post-show interviews). Each episode is crammed to the gills with information about the world/characters, but there's very little time to take it all in. Mind you, all the development is there, but it will probably take you more than one watch to catch it. It's not "bad writing", more precisely "bad entertainment".
With that said, G-Reco definitely feels unique amongst nearly all modern anime of the past decade. Whether you'll enjoy it, however, is something I strongly advise you to form your own opinion about.
It frustrates the viewer without providing easy answers; at the same time, it is realistic and honest because of its attention to the harsh truths of the world. In real life, not everything works out perfectly. G-Reco recognizes this grim fact and turns it into a riveting, artistic, heartbreaking examination of conflict, war and human relationships.
G-Reco is not only socially-relevant and important, but also brilliantly acted and written. The complexity of each character makes it difficult to make easy distinctions between "good" and "bad," which is a remarkable feat in any medium, and even more remarkable given the polarized times that we live in, and anime's tendency to "dumb-down" shows with overt-dialog, flashy editing and melodramatic background music.
G-Reco has done something that has never been done before on anime. It has taken a look at a conflict between different groups of people, and done so in a manner that brings about understanding, and feelings of compassion for all the characters involved. Rather than moralizing, and encouraging the viewers to root for one side over the other, G-Reco encourages the viewer to take the wider view, and be disturbed by the tragedy of all the characters being involved in the conflict in the first place.
>>123728577 >Once in the "pirate" ship he's like one more member of the fucking crew even after he killed that guy on the 1st episode. I'd be madder if they had some forced drama between some faggot and Bellri over Cahill dying. In the show pretty much everyone recognized that he was hasty in trying to get his woman back and died because of it. The only person who didn't get over it was Aida initially.
>>123729663 People actually read/watch anime reviews? As in this isn't just some neckbeard with a camera going "my taste is objectively the best and if everything doesn't immediately pander to me its shit"
It's not amazing and there's plenty of problems, but considering all but two or three mecha shows in the last 20 years have been unwatchable garbage, it could easily be mecha of the decade unless the upcoming J9 series is going to be as good as the old ones next year.
The show was drop dead sexy, the ridiculous pacing made for better entertainment except for the ending, and Bellri didn't cry bitch tears about snuffing anyone. Sure, he replayed (or at least attempted to) the stomach-churning "no-killing" song and dance once again and the show would be ten times better without it, but since he never cried about it or went around holding a sermon on the battlefield while screaming at the top of his lungs for everyone to stop, he was only around 1/200th as annoying as Kira Yamato, placing him at just barely tolerable levels.
>>123729663 I honestly doubt he watched it past the first episode. Even then, he probably at least understood what the characters were saying/implying (there's apparently a lot of political jabs at the Japanese government in G-Reco), which is more than we're getting from the slightly-above-crabstick-quality subs.
My biggest problem with it was how, while character motivations were understandable, it was pretty much just taking it at face value instead of having any scenes that named it up.
Like how Luin fucking hates Bell's guts in the second half, because he might become a dictator or some shit, but their interaction has only ever been in combat, or their scenes in the first few episodes where they were actually pretty good buddies. Also talks about how everyone looks down on the Kuntala, but when sites that ever actually happen in the show aside from one or two lines?
>>123730413 >Like how Luin fucking hates Bell's guts in the second half Nope, rewatch the first half, Luin's failures are all Bellri's fault, and this hurts his pride. The end is just Luin exploding and losing to his pride, much like Char and Amuro, only that this time it was completely one-sided and closer to Tomino's original Char.
>>123724992 They're both bad, but a different kind of bad.
A/Z takes itself very seriously but the plot relies too much on shock value instead of actual writing, which made the whole thing forgettable past the first cour.
G-Reco is pretty much the opposite, it has an intriguing universe and promising story but the characters acted like ADHD patients with dialogues full of poop jokes and that awful Tomino directing which made it unwatchable.
I'm quite depressed to admit that Kinght of Sidonia is te only worthwile mecha that came out lately.
>>123724992 Look, the story isn't great and the dialogue is very wishy washy (it's Tomino's style), but the series has some amazing action, gorgeous mobile suits, SOME great characters and the overal vibe is very uplifting. It's a fun show, not a good show, but a fun show. And I enjoy fun.
At first I thought the G-self looked childish, but then in many of the shots the lighting and the angles made it look demonic and menacing, not to mention that it is curbstomping everything thrown at it.
It really has grown on me especially witht he perfect backpack.
>>123724992 In my opinion, it was worse because it had no story to tell. Aldnoah had issues but it told a story. Reco had only the issue to sell new gunpla. I don't mind that, but it is weird that Tomino supposedly ragequitted fron the victory gundam project because Bandai wanted him to make new gunplas then 20 years later he made the biggest toy commercial ever.
>>123733600 Do people just not pay attention anymore when they claim there's no story? I mean, there's a lot of issues with the story, but to just say that none exists just proves how retarded you are.
>>123733680 NTR leading to yaoi dungeon sex >>123733600 Honestly, I wasn't particularly invested in G-Reco and got lost with the plot about halfway through, because I wasn't paying attention but even I understood that it was about a bunch of factions all wanting Earth and batteries in order to further their positions, and then just about all of them getting BTFO by Megafauna+Klim & Mick, who survived the space battles and befriended the battery-providers.
>>123733933 It was an adventure, during which MC and his gang discovered the truth about the world they live in. Now they can work to make it a better place instead of following what the older generations say, because they have finally seen places from all around the world and made their own opinion about it.
What was A.Z story about though? Because as far as I remember it ended up where the first episode started, and all the 22 episodes in between are pretty much a filler.
It's confusing, the editing in the beginning is crap and all the dialogue is wooden, save for few scenes. Nevertheless, I greatly enjoyed g-reco and thought it was worth the effort. Just remember to read the /m/ guides for this show.
