Da-Garn Episode 5 - Updated

A little more Da Garn for the day. This is one of those episodes where I used to get a little thrill, because the show storyboard and mecha scene direction were done by Fukuda Mitsuo and Hisayuki Hirokazu, the director-artist team who would go on to work together on the Cyber Formula OAVs and GEAR Fighter Dendoh (my other favorite mecha show), before being consigned to their respective black holes of Gundam SEED and Mai HiME.

Whether or not it has anything to do with those two, there's some pretty great little animation moments in this episode; I particularly love the body language and timing on the scene with Seiji sneaking around the police car. There's a lot to be said for cool-looking fight scenes, but I love a show that invest just as much money and effort into the little moments between them.

Here's the v2 with new raw:

  1. YES! I'm getting sound! Thank you all! I wish you luck with all future eps, particularly episodes 18 onwards, seeing as the last group to try Da Garn dropped it then (and at a cliffhanger to make matters worse!).

  2. Hahaha, that screen cap is so funny with and without context

  3. odd, seems you only get sounds in the avis that kira makes, not the ones I do.

  4. Perhaps she's (correct me if it's a he) doing it in a way that's more compatible with my computer? I don't know.

  5. 14:39 - should be 'our' not 'out only concern is....'
