Not just in the fact that I’ve been been killing time watching old Hokuto No Ken and One Piece episodes while off sick from work, but also because of this:
Loli And Super Robots In One?!!! That’s Just Fucking Cheating
Yeah it seems like Nanoha is going to have to move over (sorry Deathie) because this looks to be the one true genuine realization of a mecha show masquerading as a magical girl series. I’m in before it’s even out.
One thing that amuses me nonetheless is how it seems like Toei deliberately chose the poster boys for my World’s Ugliest Super Robots Album to use as the poster girls for this concept. Seriously has anyone ever actually seen the original Gackeen (Middle), Baratack (Top) and Gaiking (Bottom)? Keep in mind that once you’ve clicked you can’t unsee them.
Well anyway, I guess Toei really wanted to reintroduce their old robot shows to a new generation but couldn’t find a way to make them marketable (read: appealing) without some beautification in the form of lolification. Wonder how they’re going to do face open though. Also holding out for news on a Mazinger Z and Getter girl.
