It's finally done.
For a long time, I said I'd never touch G-Gundam (or Gundam X for that matter) because it has sadly remained one of two Gundam series to have never been remastered, even for DVD. With that said, it was brought to my attention that all existing rips (excluding the new Bunnyhat raws) have been absolute shit, either from ancient Xvid encoding, or the result of poor AVISynth filtering.
But let's not forget, that's G's DVDs are atrocious. They are based off of LD masters from presumably the original broadcast, and thus suffer from dot crawl, rainbowing, and generally poor color. The R2 encoding is actually not bad, and was necessary to use in a number of the color corrections I attempted on this encode. The dot crawl has effectively been removed, and the rainbowing reduced. Because of the inconsistency between episodes, some episodes may have color correction that is a bit too strong, alas this is the trade off for trying to get a more appealing picture. It's not perfect, and it never will be until Sunrise gives us better. But here it is, in all its glory.
The batch has a V2 of episode 32, which had a flawed dub track. I accidentally forgot to remove the Japanese audio from the sync timeline when mixing down the English, so I redid the audio. Sorry, no patch.
As always, enjoy!

Have the lists for which toku shows have been subbed/are being subbed been updated, and does anyone have the current ones? If there's a thread for this already, feel free to ignore this, but was curious, had a few friends who I introduced stuff to recently, and wanted to give them a means to look things up.
Pic unrelated, but adorable.

/m/, is it just me or is it ridiculously hard to find the original Astray series? It's easy to find Destiny Astray, Delta Astray, Frame Astrays, X Astray, etc, but I literally cannot find the original anywhere. The best I can find are a few torrents for those OVA's, but that's obviously not what I'm looking for.
Am I just not searching hard enough?
What is this shit?!

Started Dairanger some days ago, because of awesome suits, drunken boxing etc, BUT why is the sixth a fucking kid?! ...which can't even stand right on his skateboard, plus this cringe-worthy opening theme.
Why is this so hyped, again?

Watching this show for the first time.
15 episodes in and it's already fucking crazy. It's done in 15 episodes what First Gundam failed to do in 50: create a cohesive cast of main characters with clear motivations, and not let the viewer fall asleep while doing so.
Really, the entire scale of the show is fucking incredible, especially when you consider its age. Portraying EF/Titans as antagonists (before they split, of course), delving more into the intrigue behind Newtypes, etc. Especially having just come off of sitting through all of First Gundam (never again), this is all coming as a pleasant surprise to me.
I knew bits and pieces about Zeta before watching it, but it has exceeded my expectations in every way so far. I'm sure I'm not the first person to react this way, but I can finally say that I see where a lot of the hype comes from.
All I can wonder at this point is whether or not Gundam can get any better. I already know the premise behind ZZ and CCA, but I'm honestly most interested in following up Zeta with UC at this point.
Tell me /m/: does it get any better from here? Or should I just finish Zeta and call it a day?
(As an aside, I've seen 0080, 0083 and 08thMS already; though after this, I may give all of them a revisiting, especially 0083 since it's a direct precursor to the events of Zeta.)
