Commentary

Fan favorite, the Gurren Lagann, secured a handy victory over the anime-noir charms of the Big O as it continues to clear a path through MidGAR and onward to challenge the champions of GARhalla. The Zeta Gundam also had a big win over the sole police mecha, the Ingram. The cursed Gundam is looking in even better form than last year, and may go far this time around. Elsewhere, the other two matches this week were much closer. The hopes of Getter fans were dashed as their champion couldn’t manage to edge out another win in round 2, falling to the surfboarding Nirvash in the Sai Mecha Arena. Showing new momentum this year, the VF-25 took down a major contender in the form of the Mazinkaiser SKL to advance to the next round. Last year the VF-25 was paired in Round 1 against the eventual champion, Eva UNIT 01, and was out before it had a chance. But this year it’s really getting the chance to shine, and I could see this one going far.

Meanwhile off the battlefield, Miss R. Dorothy Wayneright took home the Android prize as the most beloved of the contenders in a very close vote. Hatsueno Alpha’s charms certainly won over a large part of the audience, and KOS-MOS displayed both her martial prowess and that she indeed has a soul. Sammy and Melphina came in after the others, but still earned respectable votes from the Asimov and Anime Classics voter bases, respectively.

Stay tuned for Colonies Side Round 2 voting this week. And once that round is concluded, we’ll be running the Earth and Colonies Side rounds simultaneously, as we’re down to a smaller number of contestants now. Once that combined round is complete, MidGAR will have chosen its champions to challenge the gods of GARhalla in the RaGARok phase. RaGARok will be eight contestants, randomized into a new bracket, as chaos reigns and the mecha mayhem will shake the halls of the gods themselves! See you there, mecha fans! This is ExecutiveOtaku, signing off.


The bracket as it currently stands.

    Fuck your shitty votes and fuck this rigged tournament. Enjoy your Sai Transformers you fuckerssssss

  4. Shin Getter lost huh… Too bad…

    • I crashed like a bitch.

      The pilots all cried.

      • Matt Wells said

        Typo or Freudian slip of the tongue? YOU HEARD IT HERE FOLKS GHOSTLIGHTINING CRASHED LIKE A BITCH.

        Renton and Alto cry girly boy tears. The Getter Team weeps only MANLY TEARS of PURE EVOLUTION. They were weeping for the fate of their Brother in Arms Simon: forced to fight crossdressers and fucking Gundams for the jeers of a tasteless peanut gallery.

        Nice job crippling the Will of Evolution dick cheese. When Dinosaurs return to enslave humanity, let’s see how well your fucking surfboarding hippies do against them THEN, eh?

    Wow, Alpha actually performed better than I thought!

    Also Ingram got more than a third? I’m still happy. (this also makes for awesome post fodder)

    I will not gloat about Nirvash winning. I will not gloat about Nirvash winning. I will not gloat about Nirvash winning. I will not gloat about Nirvash winning. I will not gloat about Nirvash winning.

    4.VF-25 Messiah, FUCK YEAH, GO ON AND DEFEAT EVA-01

  8. Matt Wells said

    FUCK YO SHIT NIGGA FUCK YOOOOOO SHIIIIIIIIITTTTTT FUCK THIS I’M OUT.

    Ahem. Well, if the Kawamori fags are determined to utterly pervert this contest of champions with their hippie pederastry, then who am I to judge? I mean, it’s not like he hasn’t designed a decent Super Robot in twenty years, right? IT’S NOT LIKE THE NIRVASH IS A BADLY PROPORTIONED EVA KNOCK-OFF WITH A SHITTY HEAD AND SHITTY KNEES AND NO FUCKING WEAPONS EXCEPT A DAMN BOOMERANG AND FUCKING PLOT ARMOUR THAT LETS IT PULL MIRACLES OUT OF IT’S ASS IN THE FINAL EPISODE.

    IT TURNS INTO A PLANE, WHY THE HOLY FUCK DOES IT NEED A SURFBOARD?! YOU KNOW THE ONLY OTHER WORK OF FICTION OUT THERE WITH SKYBOARDING? DISNEY’S FUCKING TAILSPIN. ENJOY YOUR SAI-DISNEY AFTERNOON, DICK SMOKERS/FUCK RAGS.

    WRITING LOVE LETTERS ON THE MOON? BITCH PLEASE, SHIN GETTER SPLITS MOONS FOR BREAKFAST. Seriously though: the Messiah beating SKL? That’s just WRONG. Just how many voters did Ghostlightning blow to get THAT result? Messiah beats a Mazinger, and yet the Wings of Goodbye lost to a funnel spamming pepper. Kawamori fags have no fucking taste even within their own petty bias.

    Guess it’s up to Gurren Lagann to succeed the Will of Evolution. Lord knows it’s the only robot on the Earth Side that I voted for still left in the running. ENJOY MY SALTY TEARS GETTER HATERS, YOUR VICTORY WILL BE A HOLLOW ONE. THE MOMMY BOT WILL CRUSH YOUR PRETTY PLANES INTO DUST, AND THE GETTER IS ETERNAL.

      Were I weaker man I should cry. However, that’s just what those terrible, heartless, no SOULESS sellouts want. A real man takes his sorrow and turns it into anger with which to burn forever against the cruelty of a limp-wristed, sadsack world. We did our part. When Sh_n G_tt_r returns to judge this pathetic world, none shall be spared, save for the faithful.

      Enjoy that titanic tomahawk to the face for your troubles, Kawamorifags. It’s coming, and sooner rather than later. I know you orchestrated this whole thing just to make a mockery of this noble tournament. You’ll pay. Oh you will so totally pay.

      While the “victory” of the dumba$$ surfing robot over Sh_n G_tt_r burns me to no end, I can totally understand it: it’s a conspiracy against robots with pedigree and taste in favor of these johnny-come-lately robots of recent years. Idiots don’t read and therefore have no perspective on greatness. What REALLY irks me is that, once again, the Mazinkaiser SKL gets beaten out by some ridiculously overrated, all-cg, triple-changing Sukhoi plane that can’t even fly like that in space. I mean, seriously, you people suck. You smoke a whole mountainous pile of rancid rods is what you do.

      I’ll say it before and I’ll say it again:

      you losers are obviously not metal. Enjoy your Alto-hime and his lame-o pop music.

      • Matt Wells said

        I am convinced that Nirvash only won due to more people seeing Eureka Seven than Getter Robo. Which is all fair and well, but they still have absolutely no fucking taste and should go kill themselves. Neutrally speaking. And the Haters have absolutely no class. Leave them to their souless J-Pop and crank up the volume on JAM Project and LOUDNESS. We must give our champions a worthy memorial.

    Guess I should be silent as i like skyboarding… BUT HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THE KAIZER IS BEATEN??? WHAT ABOUT THE TRUE METAL SPIRIT? A PLANE WITH LEGS, COME ON, THAT’S EVEN LESS THAN FALSE metal.

    You should not be too triumphant though, Kawamorifags, there is still the Black Getter on Colony Side. The Colonies are actually full of great machines.

    Also HOW DO YOU DARE TO ABUSE THE RED COMET for your shallow game ?

    BELIEVING A SIGN OF ZETA

    • Reid said

      They rigged this whole thing. No way Zeta, a real machine, can win against that false usurper of G_tt_r’s legacy, the TTGL.

  11. THE BUTTHURT IN THIS THREAD IS GLORIOUS! GETTERFAGS ARE THE BEST!

  12. Zhil said

    What a disgusting crime scene. I can understand GL beating Big O. Ingram getting more than 1/3 of the vote, I’m content with that. But Shin Getter Robo beaten by middle school puppy love? FUCKKKING METAL BEATEN BY KAWAMORI’S CUM STAIN ON THE CARPET? Next year, I bet you sickos are going vote the Bigfoots from Basquash to the finals.

    This is first degree murder of mecha. mecha 1956-2012 RIP

    Looking forward to the next round. 😉

  13. Guys(and girls?), I just noticed something, there’s so many GetterHaters. Isn’t it because they don’t want to admit Getter’s greatness?? All of them are jelly as they don’t have a worthy robot to pour their heart and dreams in. I daresay, victory isn’t always about winning. Brothers(and sisters?), we should already be proud of ourselves for we can push them this far as to vote for a Hawain hipster surfing robot only to try and weaken our love for Getter. In the next round, let us show the brilliance of Getter to all!!

    That’s what I got inspired to say after starting to read Getter Robot Go today. it’s so fucking awesome.

  14. Turambar said

    I anticipated, or am all right with all outcomes.

    GL beating Big-O was an inevitability while Nirvash trumping Shin Getter is a fucking dream, hahaha.

    That said, poor Kos-Mos, though Dorothy was my second choice anyhow.

  15. Kuro said

    FUCK YEAH! This makes me smile.

    3 out of 4 ain’t bad! Eventually Alphonse will get in too…

    Deal with it? DEAL WITH IT? YOU CAN BE WELL DAMNED SURE I WON’T BE DEALING WITH IT

    Is this mankind’s limit? Is nothing sacred anymore? When a freaking novelty surfboarding sorry excuse of a mech is considered better than the blood and sweat of the hardworking salarymen (and robots), when we’re think robots riding surfboards is the pinnacle of innovation instead of evolution’s finest son, you know we’ve hit rock bottom. By dooming evolution you’ve doomed us all. So long space. So long the future newtypes. So long expedition fleets. This is as far as we go. Our souls are too weighted down by the gravity of surfboard-riding oldtype sentiments too see a future beyond oldtypes, beyond newtypes, beyond death, beyond reality. We can’t even see beyond freaking surfboards. Remember this everytime you preach the psalms of the planets, surfboardfags. We’re all going to hell. Getter Emperor have mercy on us all.

  18. […] everyone to another Sai Mecha round. This time, it’s Round 2 of the Earth Side tournament. You can see reactions to Earth Side, Round 1, and Colony Side, Round 1, here. […]
