I like Zeoraimah


Zeorymer is fucking nuts, no matter the format.

I was expecting worse considering my experience with most of 80's OVA that lacked proper story telling.

It turned out to be pretty good at the end.



>lacked proper story telling

This meme again. What exactly entails "good story telling"? K-ON? Give me a break.

Reminder that Kaine's password is 1234567.

He and President Skroob would get along.


Are the present crabstick-tier subs good enough ?

I want to see this just for the mecha design and O'barry animation.

The first movie is definitely great. The sequels, I like the following three at least, but many of the older fans don't seem to like them much. The Earth Chapters (which are after the Rhea movie) aren't so good, and New Era is a sight improvement.

I really dig the 90s reboot/sequel thing, though. It brings needed closure to the franchise.

Such a shame Earth Chapter was so shit. Sandy was a genuine hottie.

If I'm understanding the Japanese wiki correctly, it seems that they had to rush the production because of "fan demand" or something.

The things I'd do to Rabby are probably illegal in a few countries. Maybe good for a Lilith-Soft game.

To get this place a bit more alive, I'll dump this artbook. But since the board is slow for the moment, I won't do it all right away either.

And this is for tonight.


I think I still have Iczelion on VHS. I never watched Iczer-One, so I couldn't exactly appreciate it for anything other than HOLY SHIT DID SHE JUST SUPLEX A BAD GUY



Think dude's trying to prevent "greentexting shitposts" or something. I dunno. I'll go yell at the BO later.

Iczelion is pretty great, the visuals are of the best of its era. Too bad Hirano never finished it.

You should watch the other Iczers, though. They bring good context and the first one is genuinely good on its own.


File: 1442166811906.jpg (2.22 MB, 3200x2170, 320:217, 009_010_Iczelion.jpg)

Poor Iczels not getting any attention even from their niché fandom. Time to fix that.

Also, this could or could not be, a good banner.

Who's that girl that wins love by daylight?

Who's that girl that never runs from a real fight?

Well, it sure as hell ain't Sailor Moon.

Bump for Sailorbros, hope you'e still around.



Still here, though I'm attempting to get my new computer set up for maximum shitposting comfort.

Good to know. It seems it's just three people here. Hopefully more /m/en and /a/nons will come here later on.



One can only hope. I've personally shilled for the board to some of my friends, though results have been… negative, so to speak.

But enough blogging. I don't have any images to post, what with this being a new computer and all, but I'm going to go ahead and try and start a discussion.

Namely, on some mango / animu differences.

>results have been… negative, so to speak

If you're the BO or admin or whatever, you could make a meta thread for this kind of stuff, or re-open the sticky. Other slow boards do it like that, and results have been pretty positive, helps for feedback for new users even.

Or I could open a meta-thread and, hopefully, the admin/BO won't mind and maybe even sticky it for the same purpose.

Curious as to why the negative results.


>Namely, on some mango / animu differences.

The manga always seemed to try really hard to be dramatic, at least to me. Anime was comfier and the artstyle was more of my liking.

The manga is pretty good, though. I would say that both are worth checking out at least once, even if you're not a fan.

I propose we nominate certain images to be our board's banners. What say you, bros?

Pic related would be my nomation.

This has potential, if you ask me.

Leaning more toward the fantasy end of the sci-fi bent, I'd like to talk about Aura Battler Dunbine.

And by "talk about," I mean "whine about how the last two R1 DVDs are so overpriced compared to the rest of the series."


YouTube embed. Click thumbnail to play.

I'd like to preface this by stating that I really don't like Garzey's Wing.

No, seriously. I would have never watched this shitpile if it weren't for the fact that the DVD was included in a two-pack with Ayane's High Kick. Now that was a fun watch.

However, both OVAs, being released in '96-97, are outside the scope of this board, so I'll leave it at that.


File: 1441702297797.jpg (651.79 KB, 1024x768, 4:3, I really need to stop usin….jpg)

Anyway. Aura Battler Dunbine is, from what I remember, about a dude from the real world named Shou Show Zama, who stumbles into the realm of Byston Well and gets embroiled in HOLY SHIT IT'S GOT GIANT INSECT ROBOTS WITH SWORDS AND BULLETS AND LASERS AND SHIT

Now, I'm a bit of a buyfag when it comes to older shows, so I haven't really given Dunbine a proper watch, due to the fact that ADV kinda gave the last few DVDs in the series a criminally low print run.


I know. It's one of my flaws.


I would just give up regarding Dunbine. I hope it gets a BD, though.


Yeah, at this point, I may as well give up. Guess I can just hope that some other distributor decides to "rescue" the rights or something.



At this point, only RightStuf or Discotek, and even then, I doubt the DVDs would be any better. A Blu Ray release would improve heavily on it.

Obligatory thread, I suppose.

Will make sound versions later, since I don't have the episodes right now.
