like, i don't mean it as in "We're doing A, when we SHOULD be doing B", I mean it as in "We're doing B, but it feels more like we're doing A"

it just feels like everybody has entered some weird slump where we're all questioning the meaning of life in what's clearly an artificial world

it's an extremely difficult-to-verbalize feeling

An apt metaphor for the Millennial/Zoomer experience if ever I heard one.

You're going to ask, and I;m going to say it right now: I had nothing- NOTHING- to do with selling off the severed head of that first kaiju to shadowy organizations that may have used it to build a cybernetic recreation of the drat thing, now if you'll excuse me I have a plane to catch

I gotta say, for all its hype, and factoring in all the extra powerups Gridman has... this kaiju doesn't seem substantially more powerful than the first one. I think it got decapitated FASTER than the first one.

I've always felt that way about the OP myself.

One of those songs that, the moment I first heard it, I knew I wanted to play it in a rhythm game. Sucks that if I recall correctly, the only one that Union has been in is Chunithm, which sucks for me. Always wished it would show up in GITADORA.

GAMERDOME put down LOSER

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzXHkURafZs So fun fact about Full Powered Gridman, its combination sequence is an extended homage to Great Might Gaine, the final form of one of the Brave Series robots. Not even the first time Trigger has done that with Might Gaine either, Little Witch Academia had something similar.

When I was a kid I had the Superhuman Samurai Syber Squad toys, which were just renamed Hyper Agent Gridman toys, on which this mech was based. They were rad as hell! The vehicles could combine into a humanoid robot in addition to becoming armor for Gridman/Servo, which doesn’t seem to be the case for this show.

I also had the set of two airships that would either combine to form a dragon or turn into a suit of armor and a big ol’ dragon cannon.
