Mecha is ...an old fashion Posted on May 20, 2023 by Anonymous What happened, /m/bros? Can anything be done about it?
What we need is mecha with huge boobs! Big mechanical titties
It's been done
are these two like shits like 25+ years old now??
Giant robots will just take its place alongside hard-boiled noir and westerns.
It's a scene from a TV show from ten years ago.
The TV program predicted that robot anime would die out and kendama would become the next trend, but I was wrong.
And Gundam is doing a new work in 2023.
>ten years ago.
I'm pretty sure it's older than that, like I think I recall seeing this image back around 2006 at least?
They're standing in front of K-on merch. It dates this pic so heavily idk why anyone still posts it
ah, okay, so that's like, 2007 at the earliest
Actually looking at it, I don't think that machine is really K-On, it just looks very similar. Possibly it's a clone. Either way, the machine behind them says namco and not bandai namco. The merger happened in 2006. So it's still undoubtedly a very old pic
okay that makes more sense that it's older
onlines say Sweet Land is a coin push game
Sweet Land Mini apparently debuted in in the mid 90s so it doesn't really help since this is def filmed later than that
There's a Duel Terminal behind them with the YGO Zexal logo, so it's most likely between Zexal launching in 2011 and the DT service being suspended in 2013
Ok so it's not THAT old.
obviously I'm not a reliable source, but I could sworn that I saw this pic an apartment or two before TTGL
This lines up with my memory of it being around the time Gundam Age was airing. In modern terminology, it was a doomer type of atmosphere.
Yeah, if AGE was the thing airing at the time, I'm not surprised that the future of mecha looked a little bleak.
>idk why anyone still posts it
It's the same as with the Lucky Star youtube comments, or the dozen Tomino interview screencaps, or Anno saying he hates Eva/himself/otaku, and other shit stirring images.
Yamato and Captain Harlock get new products too but nobody things space opera in general is still culturally relevant, just a few specific ancient franchises
Snout nosed brats
They successfully revived the mecha genre among the youth, they just needed to turn it into a yuri school drama featuring a cameo of the Gundam™ from the Mobile Suit Gundam™ series.
Nothing can be done. Generational IQ drops mean kids now are too stupid to understand the sci-fi concepts of giant robots now. Just ask someone who watches Build Fighters or Witch from Mercury what a vernier or apogee is and wait for the wikipedia copypasta response, if any
It's obvious to anyone that the mecha boom has passed long ago. Kids nowadays prefer character-focused fantasy battle shonen, think One Piece, Kimetsu no Yaiba, or even older works like Dragon Ball (still makes fuckloads of money for Bandai btw). That's why Kamen Rider is still going strong while Super Sentai is floundering. As far as toys go, the collectible aspect is the most important thing, kids love collecting stuff.
Then explain why shinkalion is so popular, newfag
In what universe?
The staff of Gundam Witch from Mercury acknowledged this. The younger generation said that they felt alienated by the gundam franchise, so G-Witch literally made /m/ relevant to the younger generation.
insolent brats, they should get corrected
>MECHA IS DYING, THIS ANCIENT SCREENCAP OF KIDS THAT ARE ALREADY ADULTS NOW SAYS IT ALL, FUCKING ZOOMERS DON'T LIKE IT EVEN THOUGH NEW MECHA MEDIA IS MADE, FUCKING SHITTERS, GET INTERESTED IN MECHA
>FUCKING ZOOMERS ARE INVADING MY MECHA COMMUNITIES BECAUSE OF DISGUSTING NEW MECHA MEDIA WHICH IS ALWAYS SHIT BECAUSE IT'S NEW, FUCK OFF, JUST FUCK OFF, FUCK YOU
spergs be spergs
you should pray that an actually good
NEW thing comes out before you're 30
I'm not listening to some kids who can't even see properly.
