Oh I'm suuure fans of older super robot genre in 1982 also complained on how the genre and its fans is not what it used to be.
I lived in a place where Mazinger Z and Macross (and every robot series in between, with the exception of Gundam) were aired on TV within a 5 year time span. The series were aired in the order of their production date, and the production quality (animation, mech design, storeline) of each new series was generally better than the previous ones.
But I've never develop lingering interest in anything else (from that time period) other than SDF:M. Just saying there was a clear improvement in SDF:M when compared to stuff that came before, not just because SDF:M was reflecting the culture of th 80. =)
On the other hand, I just remember I liked Gurren Lagann a lot. Even if GL was full of fan-service, they weren't as cringe inducing as some of the ones from Frontier. =p
The Ranka ones say "hard-on" WTF is right
That was my reaction at first when I saw the artwork like 3 years ago. =p
But I am so desensitized now, that it's actually likable... in fact I like it better than the Monster Girl one (butt nakid Ranka is
less wrong than Ranka strip teasing).
