Turn-A-Gundam is weird.
It seems to be going for a more "Big Robot" a la Voltron vibe;

The idea is that there was some kind of disaster, so the Earth has regressed and is now in a late 19th/early 20th century tech level (there fighter biplanes and armored trucks, but no tanks); While there's an advanced society on the Moon, that is coming to settle on Earth again.
The protagonist was part of an advance recon party sent to establish that the Earth is habitable; after 2 years his obligations are discharged, and he can go live wherever as an Earthling; except he uncovers a Gundam, and ends up fighting his own people on the side of a technologically backward Earth.

The animation style is really wierd, with everyone having huge eyeballs and pinpoint pupils. It's unnerving.
Weird story premise, but I'm kinda intrigued.


Just from a quick image search, the character designs looks like they're trying to go for a Gundam-does-Legend-of-Galactic-Heroes vibe with the long blonde hair everywhere and the 19th century military/aristocrat clothing choices.

Interesting storyline though. I guess it's a spin-off and not part of the main gundam timeline?

There's like 6 or different Gundam continuities. I treat each one as its own thing, and I never actually watched the original- though I think SEED was supposed to be a "re-imagining" of that one.
Yeah, the uniform vibe feels kinda LoGH; But they had normal eyes, iirc, lol

Oh darn, here I thought most of the Gundam shows actually fit into one continuous canon with just a handful of standalone spin-offs. That's surprising that it's so disjoint, isn't Gundam mostly all made by the same studio and had one guy spearheading most of its creation?

It all done by Sunrise, which is owned by Bandai. It's a series that's made to push model kits, so I'm not really surprised at the ongoing variety.

Given how widely the art style tends to change, I'm not sure if there's only one "core" team in charge of the franchise, though. I do know (from wiki) that the original universe gets some entries now and again still (mostly OVAs) ; but overall, they keep introducing new alternate continuities.
Not that I really mind. Gundam is for my inner 6 year old who saw Voltron and Transformers for the first time when Ukraine got independent TV channels that started airing all kinds of (mostly 80s) stuf from the West. It's just big robots fighting, and explosions.

Just to tack onto Mentalist's post

THe majority of Gundams occur in the UC or Universal Century universe.

However, theres Gundams here and there that are in their own universes. Things like
Gundam Wing
Gundam 00
Gundam IBO
Gundam Seed

Etc....

In other news... oof I am really disappointed in Mashiro no Oto. Each week has been more and more annoyingly typical high school club mode (where the first episode made it seem like it was more like a post-college young adults vibe), but at least the performances were still stellar. Today's episode didn't even have a big performance, and they changed the OP to a new song that doesn't even have a shamisen in it. What are they even doing.

Mmm, wasn't great I'll give you that.

I'm not sure if my Slimeline is maybe a little out but I thought Rosalie came a little later in the story, not volume 3. It's been a while since I read the third, mind you. Considering her rather nasty backstory it was quite the warming episode.

Summer season is shaping up to be very busy for me. So much stuff I've had on my radar for a while or read LNs of. Just wondering now if anyone is gonna be ballsy enough to adapt Fremb Torturchen and take us back to the simpler times of AAAAAAAAMEN, yes mai masuta and small, round spectacles 'neath the largest of red hats.

Was flipping through Netflix today and saw something that peeked my interest. A show called Demon Slayer. Has anyone watched this? Good or shit?

Aww I see it got coverage here. Will add to list to check out at some point.

Demon Slayer is aight. Occasionally a little too tropey battle shonen, but makes up for it elsewhere, and also has one of the hypest moments of the year it released. D'rek knows exactly which bit I mean.

Wasn’t to into ep 1. Way to much monologuing and emo shouting going on.

Hopefully ep 2 will leave a better taste in my mouth.

Ep 2 wasn’t much better. From what I remember that is. I fucking fell asleep a few minutes in and somehow woke up right as it was getting ready to run ep 3 on auto. I will have to rewatch it.

Cried in the first half. Cheered in the second half.

It's not as perfectly-scripted as the TV series was, there's a few scenes in particular that really stick out in a weird way and they add a new character who has no purpose at all. Doesn't seem to have as much of the "meta" elements, either. But it's still a very fun time.

I thought it was going to be about the gang finally making that anime they invented in high school that they said they wanted to someday make professionally, but it's not that kind of "climactic final arc" vibe at all - more of a "same shit, different day" kinda vibe where they are tackling relatively similar production problems as the TV show. Or maybe that's just because there are a lot of callbacks to the original series.
