[drmchsr0] Xabungle: Friday Edition [Orange Farm Archive]


What happens when Tomino stops being depressed and finally realizes that Gundam isn’t the end of his life as a maestro of mecha? WACKY ROBOT SHENANIGANS.

Combat Mecha Xabungle flies in the face of conventional mecha. It’s wacky, ridiculous, takes the mickey out of mecha tropes, and never ceases to be a fun watch.

I mean, when the show’s high points are the crazy ideas the crew of the Iron Gear do to get out of crazy situations…

…like staging a play to get the enemy to reconcile with each other…

…to wrecking an entire town (and by town, I mean giant military base full of advanced technology) to get revenge on one person…

…to one of the antagonists screaming “I AM GOING TO BE THE MAIN CHARACTER! MY MECHA HAS PLOT ARMOR.”…

…To the protagonist acting like some kind of a super robot pilot (with lines like “I’ll be fine! This is anime!”) when he’s clearly in a painfully real robot setting…

Have I mentioned that he’ll catch an ICBM and throw at?

I tell you, this show is nuts. And I rather like Tomino when he’s in a good mood. If this is what happens when he stops angsting over the state of Gundam, then I want MORE.
