Spoiler for Rating : 1,5:

The first review you posted was funny! He's not wrong about it, its true to what SRW OG is all about.

Besides, most reviews on ANN were spot on, SRWOG is a show for mecha fans, and those that know about it will probably already be watching it, its well made but it wont go out of its way to cater to non-mecha fans. I myself agree that SRWOG is not 5/5 material, its a fun show, but by no means is it ground breaking.

Lemon with Pink hair is from the OG remake on the PS2, they changed a few things for that game.

So you agree with him/her that this srw og2 just worth 2.5 of 5? Such a low score for a 'well made and fun' anime

The problem is that when this anime was announced hardly anyone except for SRW fans watched Divine Wars so very few of those new to SRW know that previous season existed. If DW appeared last year for example we wouldn't have stupid comments like that guy on MAL posted. Like I already said, if it's a sequel to something you need to know what happened before.

The same thing would be if I started watching Naruto Shippuden, without watching the first Naruto seasons, and started bitching how show doesn't explain anything to newcomers and that I should drop it.

Plotwise, OG2 is alot more complex compare to OG1. OG1 can be summarized in two sentence: The heroes get together and beat Bian and Meyer, then they go and beat the arrowgaters. OG2 has many more factions and many more important characters that you need to know. I personally think OG2 is way superior than OG1, but I can understand some who didn't want to think and dislike OG - inspectors.

While OG - inspectors is robo porn, I don't agree that you need to play OG2 to enjoy it. The viewer, at this stage, are meant to be confused about Lamia and the different enemy factions. They are also meant to be confused about the "cool mecha that comes out of nowhere"

Assigning scores IMO is a terrible way to rate something.

How do you differentiate something you give a 4.1 and something you give a 4.4?

This is why so many reviewers these days are rubbish, because all people care about are the scores and not what the pros and cons are.

And websites like MAL, ANN, Anidb, you notice most people only ever use 6-10 to rate something. anything below 5 is just counted as "complete shit" - heck I've seen people get upset because a game "only" got a score of 7.5.

For me, this anime delivers mecha action of characters and scenes from a game I really enjoyed playing, sure its cliche and the lead character this time round is as interesting as a wooden board, but that won't stop me from liking it.

We have a similar problem in the Index 2 thread. Apparently, people do tune into the second season without watching the first.

You know, I think I better chime in too while I'm at it. What is with rating a series when it's still new and not even that many eps out yet? How could these sites even allow this?

Why I think it's that bad: imagine if critics only rated the first 5 minutes of an action movie. Considering those first 5 minutes are either explosive or thrilling, almost everything would be an A

Still though, someone doesn't even need to go and play/watch/read every one of those other Super Robot Wars stuff to understand OG, and if that "The Inspector" title didn't alert you that it's an story in a series, AKA sequel, then...

I'm a bit different, though. It's been several years since I played the GBA games, so my memory of the story only started to return to me with these first few eps. While I of course still remember the girls er I mean characters, I'm enjoying this trip down memory lane for the story, and... Lee is every bit of the cold heart I thought he'd be (he'll have his day I say...)

Still could use more Ponytails and Twintails, shieße!

more or less I agree with you all about recap

that comment about story is just ridiculous. even preview on ANN mentioned about no recap of OG1, and there are also ridiculous one that tell us to play/watch all SRW to understand the story. but in fact, some people still can enjoy this anime even though they never played any SRW

ep 1 and 3 did mention a bit info (like fighting DC and aerogater). if the writer also added OG1 recap, how many time will be wasted? if they made a recap ep = more rushed story = more protest about rush


btw here are some review of ep 4
Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector Episode #04

but Random Curiosity review/comment contain some spoiler so read at your own risk

Spoiler for GAR!!!:

I think my memory failed me since it's been 1-2 years since I touched the game but, did ATX team see the special mech prior to episode 4? Cause Kyosuke said "It's that special unit again" or something of the like.

Anyone went OH SHIT went you know what appeared at the end?

that 'special mech' is already appeared since ep 1 - here and here
the anime is slightly different from the game so expect the unexpected

Cause it's easier to view rating than a long review. Too bad the rating went down horribly (oh noooo 1.5/5!!)

About lead chara, I saw you using kyo avatar in MAL? Don't you like him?

Thats true, people like to whine these days so if it was handled some other way some people would not be pleased. Now if they made 50 episodes....then maybe..

By the way, how come I see same faces over and over again here, where are all the SRW fans?

He looks cool, has a cool looking mech, that delivers cool attacks and has cool music. But that's it, in a story he's not all that compelling as a lead character.

Anyways, they gave us enough recap in episodes 1 and 3, that told us the gist of the story so far. We know the DC were up to no good last time when Bian was around and then after he died, Aerogators came along and the heroes managed to beat them too. What more do we need to know? OG1 was never a complex story.

I don't care really. As long as it gets animated, I'm happy, no need to make myself angry over how different it is from the game. As long as they include some of the major scenes, all would be good
