More BIG Giant Robo spoilers under the cut.

I'm still a little baffled by Tetsugyu's rise from the dead. I mean he got squished by a big hunk of rock, for cripes' sake. I like the guy, but...what? Oh well, his bonding moment with Daisaku was cute as heck.

Genya shooting Ginrei was seriously the most shocking moment in the entire OVA. And I sort of was expecting something like what ended up happening with von Vogler's last words, so it was a huge punch in the gut, even though she was dying anyway. I mean... damn.

I was expecting more out of Cervantes than just a few flashbacks, but he plays a bigger role in the manga.

Then I started to read the manga, Giant Robo: The Day the Earth Burned. It's in a different continuity, but even so, it's really different from what I was expecting. The Experts of Justice are kind of... well, jerks. What happened to you, Taisou?? You're s'posed to be Daisaku's daddy figure, not trying to kill him! But Chujo's evil grin makes me lol.

I assume Ogin-chan is meant to be Ginrei, in which god, what did the manga-ka do to her character?! She's not some ditzy girl who kills people! And maybe her dress in the OVA is a bit short, but she's NOT there for fanservice. Ugh, panty-shots. How I haven't missed you. And HELLO surprise clothes-destroying beam. Wasn't expecting actual nipples in this manga. True to the spirit of the OVA my ass. But you know, she might not be Ginrei, as the von Voglers have been raising Daisaku, apparently, and her brother isn't Genya. But she does seem to have some kind of thing with Murasame, so who knows.

Basically: grinding less fun, miss bug frag battles and style changes, but like having maps. Hate time limits. Voice acting in DS version bad. Like "Blues" more than "Protoman". Laika's name is Raika in English, that's wrong because I always thought his country, Sharo, was supposed to be a Russia analogue. (In Japanese, Russia=Rosha.) Nenji's name is Fyrefox. "Thank you for your assistance, kindly web browser!" Grinding in Colonel version before final boss battle. The Traumatic Bugged-in-DS-Version point is fast approaching in Protoman/Blues version, but it shouldn't be too bad this time.

Oh and another Golden Line: Dr. Regal: "There's no firewall protecting the human soul! It's full of security holes!"
That is Zybourne Clock levels of writing, there.
