Nah...it's nothing terrible. A precedent was definitely set for stuff like Strike Witches, with this. Was this a short tacked on to the L-Gaim OVA?

Actually, I have no idea where or how this was shown.

The thing is, Mika Akitaka is still drawing stuff today even.

Here's some illustrations. It says 1988.

There ARE cutesy SD shorts on the L-Gaim OVA, but they are brief bonus gag cartoons if I remember correctly.

Link is safe, it's actually kind of cool. I would have totally watched this show had it been on back in the day.
I'm finding myself more interested in those teenager looking robots that turn into shooter ships. U-Gaim herself just looks like an homage to Astro Boy.
is this awesome because it's from the 80's or is this awesome because it's from the 80's and features a mecha-loli. Truly the final frontier for lolita.
I posted this years ago, but here's the one short that was a parody of Macross only with transforming valk girls.

Check out this crazy awesome fan produced animation from 1984. It has mecha, spaceships. Also most every human shown there is female, proving that otaku had the same tastes and wish fulfillment ideas back then as of now.

3:19 in the video should be particularly interesting to Roger and Scodedog.

"proving that otaku had the same tastes and wish fulfillment ideas back then as of now. "

Did anyone ever suggest otherwise?

The difference between then and now is that otaku represented a subculture back then, and the average anime viewer was an average citizen. Today otaku are pretty much the ONLY market for anime, and the industry has suffered for it.
Is U-Gaim supposed to be the Anime version of "Small Wonder"?

I think it is. How did I ever miss that?

"Today otaku are pretty much the ONLY market for anime, and the industry has suffered for it."

That's because otaku are the only ones buying anime. What needs changing is how anime is priced and released there. Stop that two eps for per $70 DVD/BD crap. Of course since most series tend to sell just enough to make back their money (some series do bomb however), there's not going to be any changing to how anime is priced and released there for now.

And it bites people like me in the ass since I have to wait at least a year or two for a series I want to come over as they're VERY paranoid about reverse importation.

they need to make more stuff grounded in good sci-fi

roger knows what i'm saying

Yes, except that the era for sci-fi in Japan has passed. Trends change.

"What needs changing is how anime is priced and released there."

What does this do other than make it cheaper for the existing otaku? Otaku are going to spend their $, regardless. Pricing does nothing to address the root problems in the industry.

That "crap" is the only way most anime studios have to make money. They get very little of the production budget for their work. 80% of it goes to the TV stations. So they lose money making the episodes, and have to make it back somehow. In the current system, selling DVDs is the way they do that.
