Now Sunrise has fallen into the 'Mai-verse'...

In GaoGaiGar, the girls are GAR too. They get to smash stuff and still keep their nails pristine.

Heh, I remember when I blew out my comp speakers by turning the volume up to MAX when Guy did a 'HIKARI NI NARE!!!!'

I was like... then the next moment I was all, "That was f'n awesome!!" Got grounded though.

Seen the King J-Der version?

Cheers.

Seriously, it's moments/scenes like these that give Sunrise a bad rap about their characters having multiple lives.

Natch.
Then again they are robots... or extremely big androids. Can always make a new body or have spares somewhere.

That's just retarded to begin with. It's like a normal sized person bonking a midget with a normal hammer. There's nothing special about it other than the midget.

True, but as Shiryuu said they are robot so that gives some excuse

I don't know I thought that the fact that King J-Der's fingers work like suction tubes (or somewhere along that line) was much more strange.

Well all I can say is the next series out after Gundam 00 better damn well be a Gaogaigar sequel. I mean Votoms got a sequel ages after the last one that is still currently being released, so I can't see why Gaogaigar is completely out of the question. The heroes need to return.

Whatever happen to project Z? Is it canceled? I would be incrediblely happy if they do a sequel to Final but I would be just as happy if they would do another Yuusha show.

Gaogaigar has been licensed. For quite a while.

At this point it seems like Project Z must be in development hell or something. Not a damn thing has been heard about it for going on two years now. It was possibly put on the back burner for Gundam 00 and Geass.

I'd kill for GaoGaiGo however.

I am planning on buying both box sets of this anime. I know that the first box set the episodes have been dubbed, but I am wanting to know if the second box set was dubbed too or is it still subbed? Also, has Poject Z been canceled. I looked it up on Wiki and it stated it had but gave no source.

I just finished GaoGaiGar yesterday.

I got into GGG long after someone on another forum plugged it as a worthwhile series and shortly after I read comparisons of it to TTGL. My final analysis?

The ending of GaoGaiGar (both the TV and the OAV): I cried.

The ending of TTGL: "Why the fuck is Simon a hobo?"

Whilst TTGL was superior for me in terms of production values, I of course remember that it was made a full ten years after GaoGaiGar and had a massive budget. GGG also does a better job of making totally mundane tasks look TOTALLY RADICAL, which I don't think happens at all in TTGL. And while TTGL takes pains to avoid stock footage, GGG's is acceptable because it is just that good. It also helps that it is backed by full orchestral music.

Finally, I think Gai Shishioh* can sell the whole "courage and guts" milleu infinitely better than can Simon, especially in FINAL. (I hesitate to mention Kamina because I think that would get me beheaded, here). If the 3G were in the TTGL-verse, the Anti-Spirals would have shit themselves and given up on the first episode.

Another thing. I really liked Mamoru. I know he's just a little pissant kid who is rather Mary Sue-ish, but I think his optimism, joie de vivre and general likableness is what gave the ending(s) of GaoGaiGar the emotional tug for me that I didn't get in TTGL's ending.



*I know Nobuyuki Hiyama also voices Viral in TTGL. Shut up.

Good to know people aren't totally clouded by TTGL to be able to see the greatness in Gaogaigar.

Also, "Yuusha-Oh Tanjou!" is totally kickass. Masaki Endoh FTW.

Very true. It's extremely hard not to have a bodypart move in rhythm of the song.

Also, here is Project Z from this series. I originally posted in the Betterman forum but I think it should be here since the main characters are from this series.

Project Z was suppose to have continued the series after the ending of the OVA and connect with it's sister show Betterman but that did not happen.
