Boy and the World might be my favorite movie of the last ten years.

Been watching GTO Great Teacher Onizuka, very funny so far in a pervert way.
Tried watching it dubbed but it was so horrible that I had to rewatch with subs on free streaming.

Yeah, it's hilarious.

Could not imagine watching it dubbed. Some recent dubs are okay, but that was done in the dark ages.

Yeah you really miss the crazy Japanese grunts, cries and screams.
Just too hard to deal in English.

i love the books. I would be reading them if I had my collection. I'm at volume 16 and do have the latest ones here but I want to read them in order. I should go off and get my stuff out of storage. take a trip and get fresh air.

I just found a YouTube playlist with all the episodes of Jungle King Ta-chan/ジャングルの王者ターちゃん (1993).

It's a Shonen Jump show sprinkled with excessive puns, bawdy asides and the most inspired protagonist voice casting since Goku in Dragon Ball.

The show never got a release outside of rental dvd in Japan, so give it a go on YouTube if you don't mind stuff getting stupid. (search for the Japanese title; at least the first couple of episodes have burned in fansub/bootleg subtitles)

Watched the Crusher Joe OVAs on my new projector. Looked absolutely stunning.

rewatched Explorer Woman Ray and decided to keep it. Originally thought of getting rid of it but it's a nice one from the '80s.

so i've been so enamored with my BANDAI PERFECT GRADE 1/60 RX-0 UNICORN GUNDAM that i went ahead and decided to roll the dice on the series it's attached to.

we'll see if it can come even remotely close to the singularly shining moment in GUNDAM excellence (IMHO)
that is 0083; STARDUST MEMORY... (i don't personally hold much hope of that)

Imo Unicorn is better than Stardust Memory, animation style aside. Both are good though.

I know this is petty, but I really wish UC had an opening animation/song that was at least as 50% as good as 0083's 2 openings (UC's TV broadcast OP doesn't come close IMO). Probably would have liked it a lot more if it did.

"THE WINNER" and "MAGIC" are easily among the greatest OP/ED songs in the history of Anime, IMO.
they totally made my jaw hit the floor when i first came across them via the early U.S. ANIME VILLAGE VHS edition of 0083 back in the late-90's/early-00's.

really, the only bad thing about 0083 in general, IMO, is that, being the first GUNDAM entry i ever got to see,
it gave me a distorted initial picture of what i was to come to expect out of the GUNDAM franchise extant.

YMMV as always, but IMO, GUNDAM in general suffers hard for it's abject overall lack of the incredibly slick sense of style that 0083 carries with an easy swagger.

indeed, 0083; STARDUST MEMORY for me was like; GUNDAM!!! WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!?!
then WING, SEED and the like followed up on it's heels, and i was like OH. Nevermind then...

Both are absolutely amazing from an animation perspective with my preference being for the CG-free 0083 in that area. However as a Gundam show 0083 was basically Shadows of the Empire, an attempt to continue the franchise in a story bubble designed specifically not to spoil any details of the actual main Gundam storyline. Since Tomino never really explained what a Newtype was to anyone nobody else would use them. 0083 is almost exactly Top Gun in space. Much better than Top Gun but not actual Gundam it’s a toss up. Unicorn on the other had was the long LONG awaited return to the main Gundam story that we had been waiting for since around the time 0083 was in planning and IMO its excellent at doing its job. It has a victory redefining “Shenmue 2” sort of ending that I liked but I think a lot of people probably didn’t. If you haven’t seen 0079, Zeta, ZZ, and CCA then most of Unicorn will be lost on you.

I haven’t seen the TV edit. The sequel, Gundam NT, is for sure worth watching.

I once met Mio at a thing in NJ. Her English is way above average, the outfit was poofy, I don’t remember much else. Her voice is LEGIT. I always loved the girls who refused to be straight up idols.

That I would agree with, the quality itself is really good. Prestige level, but like you I prefer the old look.

0083 as well as 08 MS Team both fall under that Gundam name slapped on something that isn't really Gundam. I enjoy both but they are not core series, but gaidens.

My entry point to the series was Wing and it actually put me off of the franchise for a long time.

My entry point was Gundam Seed, which was the most recent series at the time, and after finishing it and finding out about UC and the other AUs I felt so intimidated by the existence of all the UC material that I watched more or less all of the AUs to scratch my Gundam itch before finally watching UC and loving it.

Unicorn and NT were fine but First Gundam, Zeta and CCA are my personal UC-canon.
The gaiden non-newtype stuff has some good entertainment value as well but all the crazy Gundam-prototypes that show up between First and Zeta sort of diminishes the clean lineage between the original Gundam and the mk2.

I guess I am just a simple guy who likes simple narratives.
