Discussion in 'Transformers News and Rumors' started by GWolfv2, Oct 13, 2018.
I'm loving this show. Glad there is a discussion group going!
After Transformers Animated, I’m pretty sure Transformers can be adapted to fit just about ANY style. Besides, big fighting robots are arguably what Trigger (and their predecessor Gainax) does BEST! They seem to go out of their way to squeeze at least one into everything they do.
*late* All the kaiju you see in the series are reworks/riffs of kaiju from the original Gridman/Ultraman. Not everything's a TF ref.
Anosillus II is a combination of the original Anosillus and the 'VR feminoid' who was part of the plot in that original Gridman ep. For extra fun nods...that plot involved a keyboard of the type that one guy was buying in the store. And said guy was based on the actor who played Naoto from the original show.
That fucker Alexis Kirby mutilated Anti's face
You kick that bastard's ass, Gridman!
Kind of funny how nobody wanted to believe what Yuta had been told. Come on guys, you got a guy on a computer screen fighting giant Kaiju, but your classmate being behind it is stretching your imagination?
Alexis Kirby is a droll one. Reminds me of Beast Wars Megatron.
Happy to see Anti is still a recurring character. That guy is awesome
I wonder if his Kaiju form will reflect the wound he got on his human face. Another great episode, cutting to the chase where our hero and the villain uncomfortably casually meet in the restaurant owned by the girl Akane had killed.
I like how they reference both SSSS's Vitor pilot Amp and Lucky, I thought it was just Amp tbh.
I’m wondering if the anime itself doesn’t take place in the digital world, and none of them realize it. That would explain why there is a “ceiling”, and why nothing is beyond the city. I don’t believe Akane can actually change the world itself like she, the loli Kaiju and Francis suggests. I think the only way it could be possible if none of it is “real”. Plus, I also feel like there has to be another twist in the story. You can’t make me believe the entire shows exposition is in episode 6 with the other six episodes just her fighting after that, especially considering how fast things moved in this episode and that the secret is out.
Just like the original series, Gridman fights in a computer world.
I’ve never seen the original series, but thats what I was thinking. Glad to know my theory might be right, too.
As someone watched the original, I was relieved to know this is a virtual reality after all. At first I thought the transformation was stupid because it needed a computer and they're not going to the other world.
What makes Gridman Gridman is he's like an antivirus software.
I tried to re-watch the original series. While the concept was cool and way ahead of its time, the overall bad acting almost makes it unwatchable.
damn no wonder Trigger had to reboot this
I'm thinking the world they are in is a hybrid of the real and digital world, where something happened in the past (possible in a similar timeline as the OG Gridman) where the two worlds started to meld together.
I wonder, no more.
Or, rather, now I wonder if Akane will continue to try to seduce Yuta, or, maybe, how far Trigger will take it.
Will Shinjo lead Hibiki into “The Realm of the Senses?” xD
The fight scenes and I think the OP are fun, but I’m not that into tokusatsu enough to watch the original, nor would I rewatch the English dub: it’s not worth it just for Tim Curry!
Before Reboot and the Matrix—and Westworld, there was...
The Invention of Morel - Wikipedia
Last Year at Marienbad - Wikipedia
Ubik - Wikipedia
And, of course, so many more works of Virtuality and Cybernetics.
That’s my thinking...
Remember that flashback Yuta has where he seems to be pierced by the Lance of Longinus, or maybe a JJBA Stand-Giving Arrow?
My guess is that that moment is when Yuta might’ve become the divine motivator like the Monad, while Akane and Alexis are fashioner gods like the Gnostics’ concept of Yaldabaoth.
And, a bit like Rahxephon or maybe, and more aptly, like Digimon, their whole city is trapped within somekind of cybercataclysm locking them out from the rest of the world... if there’s anything left.
But, if they’re simulation is all that is left, then we’re right back at Zegapain! =D
I was expecting him to find a ceiling or barrier when he flew higher and higher, but I wasn't expecting a city.
It was kind of funny when Alexis just casually walks into the restaurant in his alien form
I'm thinking something similar. Like a global genocide by kaiju and the survivors live in a vr world kind of like in the Matrix.
One thing I wonder about :what is Alexis's goal.
We know so little about him or her.
I felt it was kind of non-eventfull actually at first after everything we learned last episode.
But it had some interesting and fun stuff.
Damn, there's only 6 episodes left?
I knew this wasn't going to be a 50 episode series but I hoped for a 25-ish run. Just like a modern Ultraman show.
This explains a few things for me though. One, that they are introducing the forms so fast and two, that all the merchandise for this show comes out in December / January... the show will be over afterwards
Totally nothing out of the ordinary for Alexis showing up in that resto
