    Bumped because I just rewatched God Bless Dancouga.

    I just wanted to say that I love how Dancouga starts out about as "real robot" as you can get, and by the end of it they're stabbing a god in the face with a blazing sword.

    ...

    And maybe ponder why Dancouga never comes up when people start arguing about which mech is the most powerful in all of anime.
    Gurren-Lagann throws galaxies like ninja stars? A. That's not at all what was going on, and B. Dancouga killed a god.

    Getter Emperor shatters planets with the shockwaves from its transformation? Dancouga killed a god.

    Ideon destroyed and remade the entire universe? Wait a second, that basically means Ideon is the Dancouga's natural prey, doesn't it?

    I normally don't do subbed-only

    ...

    Get tomman to play Chaos Wars on PS2. :)

    (I actually only found out about that game because it's an IF game, not because of its hilariously bad dub.)

    I'm so dumb compared to everyone here, but y'all are cool peoples so >_<

    So. I've recently started watching 2018's "Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion", a coproduction between TakaraTomy and... Japan Railway.
    It is equal parts plastic robot commercial and steel locomotive commercial, which is a little odd but not unheard of. I assumed it was a fairly by the books shounen anime, and the first dozen episodes were exactly what I expected. Competently-written, but not pushing any boundaries. There's a heart in it but, much like our heroes, the story is traveling some frequently-used rails.

    So I was settled in for a predictable genre piece featuring young boys shouting about courage and friendship while piloting cheaply-animated combat robots. You know, the Mac&Cheese of anime. It doesn't challenge your expectations, it isn't pushing any boundaries, but it is a familiar and enjoyable place to be when you want to just shut your brain off for a little while.




    And then this happened.



    That's Hatsune Miku driving a train robo.


    And just in case there was any attempt to write this off as an homage design, they make sure the character introduces herself as Hatsune Miku, and she speaks in a choppy synthesizer voice (they apparently hired the lady that gave the Vocaloid software her voice to perform the character in Shinkalion, and then manually applied a filter over the recorded dialog). They apparently even sold Vocaloid x Shinkalion Miku Merch.

    And now my brain is thoroughly derailed. My Mac&Cheese is on the floor and I've got no idea how it happened.



    A brief bit of furiously confused searches later, I discovered this show is a LOT weirder than I expected. As in I can look forward to seeing Hatsune Miku™ and Ikari Shinji™ team up to fight Godzilla™, and not one single word of that is made up. And for once, "How the fuck did they get the licenses for all that" isn't even in my top five questions.

    Heh, so Miku went from selling Corollas in 'murica to... selling train tickets to otakus?

    Update: While Shinji has not gotten in the robot, we DID have a five-minute Evangelion parody as the show plugged the real-world 500 TYPE EVA train(which was due for final departure in May of that year, as the show helpfully reminds the audience). I was prepared for this, I watch my episode previews like a good boy.

    I was NOT prepared for Cruel Angel's Thesis to start playing as said train pulled into the station. Damn near died of laughter.



    Also, Hatsune Miku is a recurring guest character, not a one-off cross-promotion. I am far happier about this than I should be, as I kinda like her in-show character.

    Episode 23: The main character's DAD gets to fight in a train robo.

    Actual plot: His dad was transferred to Kyoto several episodes ago to oversee construction of a new branch of the train-robo organization so transforming battle trains can protect ALL of Japan instead of just Tokyo. The family is visiting this episode. Main character's kid sister has been watching telenovelas unsupervised and is convinced her father is cheating because that is always what happens when a man is away on business. This is fucking hilarious.
    It also turns out one of the projects his dad has been overseeing is development of a train robo that can be effectively piloted by adults.


    Otaku shit, both of the train and robot variety:

    It is an older bullet train, introduced in 1997 as opposed to the main character's 2011 train. I had to /wiki/shinkansen to check this. What made me think to check it was that the train looked a lot like the Liner Gao in 1997's King of Braves GaoGaiGar. I didn't expect it to be exactly the same year, just "new when GaoGaiGar came out".

    AND his older train transforms into an older style of robot, with a shit-ton of missile launchers for maximum Itano Circus power and a glass dome on the robot head for that sweet Mazinger Layzner view from the top. Spoilers: No research at all was required to date this.

    I want THIS lovey shit made into in an anime, PRONTO.

    ...or at least a VN on Steam~

    (At least the artist is on the good track for that, as Kadokawa officially published those in a book. Small steps!)

    Today I learned that RWBY - Hyousetsu Teikoku by Shaft already has the first 3 episodes out.

    It's available on YT for free, or on torrent sites like nyaa.si if you want to download it.

      This does not actually go there and I regret nothing.
