    Bandai DX VF-31

    That's a matter of personal opinion, to that I would have given this series a hard pass if the -31 didn't have the forward swept design.

    WIP: Alternate Weapons Pods for VF-31

    No problems, I have the speaker pod on my wishlist once I get the funds for a large order (I have a few 40K bitz I need as well). Just figured I ask since I'd pay a bit more for the complete package as opposed to having to do a separate order for the hardware.

    WIP: Alternate Weapons Pods for VF-31

    I'll take up that offer, heck is it possible to get the speaker pod direct through you and get the pins/screws needed?
  4. Well @Seto Kaiba, I like to temper expectations, glad your loving the series. I binged Hero=/=Mask this weekend. Nothing spectacular, but decently paced and a good old fashion crime drama. Best description I can give is SAC with less military and more civilian police.

    The Newbie and Short Questions thread

    @Seto Kaiba might have a more detailed answer, but iirc the short answer is yes. The reason the local garrison in the cluster were using VF-171 was due to budget concerns since the 171 was cheaper and easier to make then the more advanced 25s. It also the reason why only the main force attached to protect Walkure had the newest fighters, ie the VF-31
  6. It does, the only real compliant I've heard from my group is the CGI dance numbers later in the series, basically like the new concert sequence in the Delta movie only slightly better animated.
  7. I would also strongly suggest looking for their Halloween livestream as well. Because...
  8. Ep 2 has an amazing rap battle. After that temper your expectations as it goes back to classic idol anime with character growth and zombie hijinks. Ep 8 has a scene that seemed to piss a few people off. No spoilers as to what it was.

    Neflix's live action Cowboy Bebop

    Which would be nice if this was that, a sequal/side-story, but double checked and yeah this is a retelling which is a shame.

    Neflix's live action Cowboy Bebop

    So how does Star Trek avoid the same issue considering most of the series have had different crews? Heck we can add in Gundam and even Macross into that given that the best Macross next to the original is Frontier and that had none of the original casting.

    Neflix's live action Cowboy Bebop

    The article sounds like a treatment for Outlaw Star more then Cowboy Bebop. Honestly on the reboot/remake issue, it would be nice if this series was just in the same universe but with a new crew. That way you can keep the tone near the same without having to completely replicate it to appease fans of the original. Plus it would give room for new stories.
  12. Throw an MA rating on it and it's the parent's fault for not knowing what their kids are watching, there are far worse hits against religion in that series.
  13. Violet is a special creature, so no surprise there. As for the super-robot series.... if it's the Trigger one that would be SSSS. Gridman, it's a good call back to the giant monster and ultraman series of old. After the halfway mark it's starts to dip into philosophy Trigger style. If not then the only one I remember is Captain Earth?
  14. The first episode is actually the general quality of the series animation, not a boost. @technoblue is correct in that it takes it's time in the character building and story. The OVA isn't too bad of a better dip then the front of the series, so it might help and doesn't spoil the series main arc.
  15. Which is just fine. Personally I like the vehicle designs and the monster designs are interesting too. It's just the robot modes were too close a rip of other things. Anyway so I binged on Land of Lustrous this weekend. That was an interesting ride. The animation was better then Polygon's work and the story starts up mid Steven Universe and then shifts heavy existential about half-way through. Hope they do more. Might do Girl's Last Tour next weekend if I'm feeling lazy again.
