    Guys,why do we all talk to and about clawshrimpy instead of talking about fucking anime?

    Like Tytania.
    Cause Tytania is all about the ani and the me.

    Except you haven't watched most of the shows you're complaining about because you constantly lie about them, so you don't know jack shit.

    And you must have seen a very different Turn A than the one I've been watching, since Turn A is extreeeeemely light on the battles.

    Quality over quntity. Case in Point:

    When you DO get one, it's incredibly well done. I can't really say the same for 00, and definitely not so for SEED.

    Turn A probably offers some of the best animation in Gundam as a whole.

    Really, I'm 18 episodes in right now on Turn A and he doesn't even have a proper set of weapons for his Gundam yet. He's mostly stopping battles at this point.

    ROBOTS

    This clip was giant robots, flying in the air, using swords to kill each other. You're holding it up as a shining example of practicality due to their suit design?

    You've broadened your suspension of disbelief enough to accept this sort of sillyness, why can't you go further along that line and accept the rest of it like everyone else? Unless you actually believe this sort of thing might happen...?

    I'm talking about the quality of the suits, the fight footage, and how awesome the characters are. ESPECIALLY Gym. (The guy with the black curly mullet.)

    You know, I understand what you are getting at and such forth.

    But don't you think you've pushed these people enough as it is? There really isn't any point to carrying this on.

    Yeah, the very genre calls for some suspension of disbelief at least.

    And speaking of practicality, I think it's enough to just mention how convoluted it can get when they try to explain in detail how said mechs work. I'd rather go without the technological equivalent of midichlorans, personally.

    I'm just pissed off, and people keep pushing my buttons. People go on about "Oh I havent watched it" yet, how am I going to do that if I get more dissappointed and upset at the show with each episode.

    If you aren't enjoying it stop watching. I don't enjoy Mushi Shi. I thought I would, it sounded like something I would. But I don't. I don't go around claiming the creators are ruining a genre I have no ownership of, it just wasn't for me.

    You don't know what it's like!

    There are no good recently aired Mecha anime, I've been waiting several years for Sunrise to get Gundam back on the right track and it's not happening.

    these people have their entire own genre. (there are a whole category of shounen-ai shows. go look up Kyou Kara Maoh.)

    Why do they have to hostily takeover my fandom?

    THERE IS NO RIGHT TRACK.

    There's shit people like to watch and shit they don't like. You're in the minority for shit people like. Sucks to be you. Don't start whining about the dearth of things Clawshrimpy likes and blame it on everyone else ruining it.

    I would have liked to discuss how much I liked Toradora episode 11 with you guys, but thanks to Clawshrimpy I think I'll be taking a break from this thread for a while.

    And as for you Clawshrimpy, VOTOMS and Patlabor were literally up next on my to-watch list. But thanks to your constant bitching, it somehow made me angry to watch it, because watching it would mean I would remember you. It'll likely be a long time before I ever consider watching it again. Thanks dickwad, you just drove me from one of your sacred robot shows. Hope you're happy.

    EDIT: Fucking last post on this topic, I swear.

    What, No he isn't. He's as bad as any DN character. Code Geass is basically Death Note with robots that might show up occasionally.

    Not talk about it constantly. Every so often, when relevant, but not continuously dragging the topic all over the place and making it revolve around you and your opinions. This is what people are getting angry about, nothing further. All you have to do is stop for a while.

    I can't help it, I'm vastly upset, and need people to talk about how I can't adjust to what's playing right now.
