Nolife’s Tomino and Yoshida G Reco interview

nolife g reco tomino interview earth won't last more than 300 years

Back in June, Nolife did a special gundam night, talking about the various aspect of the franchise: shows, games, figurines etc. Nolife exists for 8 years now. It’s the only French channel I watch regularly for years now. There’s only crap on tv now. It’s either reality shows, tv shows with the episodes not airing chronologically, retarded debates brewing racism, and crappy anime, Japanese or not. While the dubs almost always suck, there used to be a lot of different jp anime airing till five years ago or so.

Without even speaking of the history of France with anime and how we’re the nonJapanese anime master race with Italy, around 15 years ago now, in a span of a few years, one channel aired Evangelion, Escaflowne, FMA, Excel Saga, GTO, Monster, Samurai Champloo (only one year after it aired in japan or even less) and more. There was tons of other anime on other channels too. Though the dubs sucked most of the time,it was still cool. Gankustuou even aired on tv here too, cuz muh Monte-Cristo French culture. Then around 3 years ago, I don’t know what happened, but now every channel only airs either Naruto or Fairy Tail. There’s still that one channel reairing old anime from 25+ years ago, but besides Nolife no one airs anime different than ultra popular things now. (Without counting children anime in the mornings like the new Beyblade and the occasional rebroadcast of Princess Sarah,Heidi,Attacker You, etc)

Almost every new French produced anime sucks too. Wakfudofus anime are apparently good but I never watched them. The new Taiyou no Ko Esteban series sucked.  Then there’s Marathon who used to do good shows like Totally Spies or Martin Mystère, but now they do crap like Lolirock: A multimedia show copying Sailor Moon and Purikyua and mixing it with music. Even Jem and the holograms was better than this. Don’t watch Lolirock if you value yourself.

Anyway, Nolife did a Gundam night and since they actually aired G Reco.

I was busy, so I only watched all of it now. They also managed to interview Tomino and Yoshida, as in Nolife themselves,  not some interview from another source. I summarized what they say since it’s interesting.

Gundam G No Reconguista is airing on Nolife every friday

g reco best girl eyecatch gif

They started airing the show this week. Every Friday at 7:45 PM. This is why I give them 5€ every month. Yet again, Nolife is one of the few things making me proud to be French.
(The channel is free but if you subscribe on their website you can watch online everything they did since the channel started more than 7 years ago, except anime they aired since they don’t have the rights)

This is the show I’m liking the most this season, even more than Cross Ange and SeHa Girls, and my enjoyments of these shows is already past 100%. I hate to say it but if someone says they don’t like the show because it’s confusing at first it’s because they’re impatient. While the exposition is old school and it’s something we may not be accustomed to anymore, everything is explained slowly as the episodes goes on. If you’re wondering about something in one episode it’ll probably be answered to in the next.  You just need to be patient.

g reco best girl power

Everything is just so good in G Reco. From the characters to the story to the universe. And the comedy. I’m still laughing at the cinnamon cake line, or how Bell apologizes to Aida because he told her something she knows, implying he only said that for the audience so people don’t whine again. I’m liking everyone. I really like Manny( I’m mad she cuts her hair), Steer girl, the nurse helping them put on the pilotsuits, Bell’s mom being so awesome, Aida’s dad being so cool, KURIMU NIKKU, MIKKU JAKKU… So many great characters. I’ll be pretty butthurt if people start dying. I’m already still super butthurt about episode 6.

g reco 9 steer girl

Speaking of Steer girl, she’s credited as “ステア”, voiced by ミシェル・ユミコ・ペイン. I’m actually wondering if Sutea/Steer isn’t actually her name. Maybe they did it on purpose, I dunno. Not gonna check/search myself. I already have my hands full trying to cover Pretty Rhythm background/staff info etc. Plus, literally everyone and their dog are already translating the G Reco twitter, interviews, and every material ever so I’ll just wait to get spoonfed. I used to read stuff about the show, starting with the first announcement for it some years ago with a pic that kinda looked like tekkaman blade, but now that show actually stated I’m refraining from reading material from now, I want to discover everything myself. I’ll start reading again when the show ends.
Quickly googling in japanese tells me Steer girl’s seiyuu is half japanese half australian, explaining her good FIRE FIRE FIRE pronunciation. Also apparently she’s a singer and not a regular seiyuu.
(Speaking of that, the episode(s) Pretty Rhythm director works on still haven’t aired, so when he said it’s not airing anytime soon, he meant it. Maybe one of the end eps. Also, it’s not his first time working on Gundam, he did some stuff on Turn A and Unicorn)

I wish I made a post sooner because now with episode 9 and how they start to reveal more things there’s less things to guess about and more things we’re almost certain of unless they do a last minute twist.
Some of the things I have in mind though:
Noredo is actually a spy from the moon guys, she’s hypnotized or something and doesn’t realize it herself.
Luin really used to be friends with Bellri to take advantage of him, being the son of someone important. And the way he acts as Mask is actually his real personality.

TSUKKAME PURRAIDOOOOO!!!! TSUKKAME SAKKUSESSSS!!

prad3 director twittter hiro g reco mask

A few days ago Pretty Rhythm director modified his Hiro happy birthday avatar to this.

prad2 ayami g reco mask  エボラ出血レズ twiter avatar

A Pretty Rhythm fan on twitter copied him and started doing it with his/her avatar too. I hope it becomes a trend and everyone does it with other characters too.

I still haven’t seen episodes 4-5 of G Reco. I still haven’t seen PriPara 15-17 either but unlike G Reco I ‘m not in a hurry to.
I sure hope you’re watching G Reco and that you’re not one of these impatient kids  going “baaaw why they still haven’t explained everything in three episodes and aren’t explaining things twice or more along with flashbacks, this show sucks baaaw” oh and also: “there must be a meaning in every scene/word and I didn’t get it!! What did this scene mean!!!”

I hope there’s a OTR OVA with them hanging together and buying stuff at the supermaket soon. Other new Odeco pics can be found on her twitter. Too lazy to save and reup them here today.

There was a puniket sponsored/organized/whatever how it’s related to puniket event called the Pretty Rhythm doujin event SHT2014 thing the 23rd of September.
There was some new doujins sold there, along with already released ones too. Irua also sold a new Cosmo Sophie doujin there along with reprints of older ones.
Next Puniket Pretty Rhythm doujin event is the 9th of November. info here.

I rapidly checked and didn’t find any info or report bits on the Ookubo Rumi/Mia talk show from September I mentioned in a previous post. I guess the 100 people who attended got better things to do than chatting about how good it was on the net. Haven’t checked twitter yet though. Got not time for now.

Prince Animage 2014 Autumn got a new OTR interview and pics.

akesaka satomi esdeath cardboardyugioh arc-V ayu voiced by Akesaka Satomi

Akesaka Satomi (Kanon & Chae Kyoung) tweeted yesterday that “her chest hurt for some reason”. Ensuing funny jokes like “it’s growing, want me to rub it for you” etc. These days she’s voicing Esdeath in Akame Ga Kill. She seems to like it. She’s also voicing a little girl called Ayu in Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V and she seems to like it too.
