>Yoshiyuki Tomino's latest anime, Gundam: Reconguista in G, has largely met with a hostile reception from fans, including being called "really bad" and hard to follow by former Studio Gainax president Toshio Okada and performing poorly in anime rankings compiled on Nico Nico Douga. In an interview published in the June edition of the manga magazine Gundam Ace, Tomino admitted to his errors, even saying "I'd only get 15 points out of 100."
>15 points out of 100
>Tomino has been trying to sabotage gundam since double zeta (but that backfires on him)
No it didn't, ZZ is shit
Also, ZZ was his last stroke of happiness at that time, afterwards it's all depressive Tomino, reaching its peak at Victory
CHICKEN HOW'RE YOU isn't a plot anon
>Tomino said Turn A was bad
>Tomino said Victory was bad
>Tomino said F91 was bad
>Tomino said Zeta was bad
Big news guys.
"But you didn't pay attention!!!"
"Go back to CA / A/Z!!!!!"
"[random reaction image] What an idiot/retard"
Did I cover all the bases of G-Reco Fan Criticism Deflection Techniques?

oh thank god, I felt like a retarded newfag not being able to fallow this show but was too afraid to ask /a/ to help me understand for feel of being labeled as such
>naruto of gundam
Seriously. People like you is the reason I fucking hate /m/ with a burning passion. Stupid brain dead low quality faggots like you are everywhere shitting up the entire place with your horseshit.
I enjoyed try but I'll admit that it's essentially for retards who enjoy Gundam shows for the giant robot fightan' and can't pay attention to the plot/politics/relations between characters.
That said Kamiki is boring as fuck and the show would have been better without him.
>there were issues with an older staff doing things in an older style
Where the fuck did he say that? He says they focused a lot on the art/animation and action but not on telling the story.
>Frankly, I didn't think it would be this horrible.
> After Episode 19, we improved so it became a little easier to watch, but gosh, it was too late. With a terrifying amount of effort, we managed to wrap everything up by Episode 26.
>he feels that the story was "lost" amidst the action scenes and was a big miscalculation. "The principle that screenwriting should prevail over the quality of action scenes was totally discarded."

>it's essentially for retards who enjoy Gundam shows for the giant robot fightan'
I could understand if fights in Try were not complete garbage. No choregraphy, barely any teamwork, characters jobbing left and right, guy with the most particles bullshit win, chicken hadouken spam win,...
Comparison with first season hurts.
I’ve come to realize that asking Syd Mead was a mistake'
>Tomino’s remarks appear in the September issue of Bandai Visual’s Beat Magazine. In speaking to the publication’s reporters, the anime legend looked back on the last Gundam series he personally directed, 1999’s Turn A Gundam.
>“I’ve come to realize that asking Sid Mead was a mistake,” Tomino admits. “I was already a fan of his preexisting works, so I gave him free rein to do as he wanted. Actually, somewhere along the line I felt like there was something a little off with the designs he’d submitted, but by that time things were too far along to change their trajectory.”
G-Reco was garbage and the character designs were absolute shit. To say nothing of the G-Reco itself. Now all Gundams are supposed to be toyetic, because Bandai need to sell them toys, but fucking hell that thing looked like it belongs on the shelf with Fisher-Price baby shit.
>And yet the first and last episodes of Turn-A are the best ones in the series.
Both were boring, but Try was at least followable.
Plus my favorite weaboo made a reappearance.
>G-Reco was garbage and the character designs were absolute shit.

Worse than George Lucas
Japs have shit taste. Mead's designs were exactly the overhaul Gundam needed. Too much of the Gundam designs were shitty boxy pieces of shit with more and more garbage being slapped onto them.
Mead taking it down to a very simplified silhouette was what was needed.
Of course the Japs tossed that aside and went full retard with even more shit slapped onto BAWKSES and more BAWKSES and horrible mary sue characters in SEED.
But it's true. The first episode of Turn-A is one of the most intriguing and unique openings to a show that I have ever seen, and thanks to Loran it is instantly likeable. If I had to show one episode of any series to someone who didn't watch anime to get them interested in it, that would be the one I would choose.
