ZX Gigamix
« on: November 08, 2008, 06:17:40 PM »
So, I posted this before the forum reset, and I think I had no replies...

No one made high quality scans on the Gigamix artwork??
I'm really in search of them.

If MMN doesn't have it, probably no one else does at the moment. I wouldn't mind being disabused though.

at first, i thought the only track worth listening to in Gigamix was Trap Fanatics. but i gave it another listen recently, and discovered a couple more tracks that i actually like.

Believe in Myself was actually pretty good. the instrumentation was top notch, and the vocals weren't as abrasive as i first thought. not nearly as earrape as Be One, but still not quite as good as Innocense.

Whisper of Relics is also really good, which is weird cause i didn't like the original or the ZXA Tunes version at all. i'm not a fan of ambience. but Gigamix made some nice changes to the sound.

Bullet Drive isn't too bad either, though i do prefer ZXA Tunes' version. aside from those, the only track i can even listen to is Battle Giga Mixture, but even then it's not all that great. while it does immensely improve Divine Hammer, and i like it's take on Dance Macabre better than the other two versions, everything else kinda fails in comparison to their Tunes versions.

What happens in Vegas stays on Youtube. I also stream on Twitch from time to time.

I'm not very interested on the tracks, listen to some but don't really liked it.
I was talking about art scans.

III dropped the ball on gigamix. RTRZ 1-4, and Zx/A tunes were awesome, but GM sucked entirely.

Holy crap, it had young PnP. Just that on great quality (because the version around is really poor) would make my day... er... YEAR.

I had mixed feelings about sharing these but after some private conversation, I figured the community could benefit from it. It's not the highest possible quality but it's still good enough for viewing:

http://oakie.purmon.com/Scans_Gigamix.rar

I scanned the noteworthy illustrations. The booklet has concept art scattered in the other pages, but it's mostly covered by text and from what I could tell, it's nothing we haven't seen. Many thanks to Kieran Walker for his help in purchasing the album.

The contents of the booklet are:

  • Liner Notes
  • Track Notes (Hitoshi Ariga)
  • Spread from Yoshihiro Iwamoto (Death and Witch)
  • Lyrics
  • Spread from Hitoshi Ariga (Girls Bravo)
  • Profile

Cast:

    Sanae Kobayashi : Vent, Aile
    Ryo Hirohashi : Prairie
    Michitaka Kobayashi : Fleuve, Hunter

    Daisuke Kishio : Prometheus, Truite
    Shizuka Ito : Pandora

    Hisayo Yanai : Oeillet, Anchor
    Yuuki Tai : Mick
    Masakazu Kohara : Robin, Hunter, Reporter
    Rio Totsuka : Cedre, Computer
    Kanae Ito: Sardine, Shop attendant
    Satomi Sato: Rose, Waitress

Thank you dude, that's neat!

Only one question: isn't there a better pic of young PnP?
The only one available is that in which you have the cd plastic over it?
If not, would you scan it please?
If so, is it possible to remove that plastic part for a better pic (only if you're in a good mood)?

Thank you again.

Young Pandora is so cute.
also, that was some kickass Prometheus concept art!

Aww... Aile and Pirarie in Girls Bravo... :3
And seriously, the concepts for PnP are awesome, the pre-Pandora would be nice, though pre-Promete's head looks weird... XD

Thanks for these, Robert Oakes. 8)

That's the only image of the two if you don't count the first panel of Death and Witch. Also, the album was difficult to find and expensive to boot, so I'm not willing to risk damage in an attempt to get a better scan, sorry.

On a side note, could someone please translate the Liner Notes (included in the file)? I may consider scanning the other pages if someone is willing to translate them as well.

You know, that picture of Prairie in the dress from Girls Bravo might as well have "Hi, my name is Alouette" printed under it. >_>

Honestly, if that's not proof of her identity, then I don't know what.

As if Ciel had any OTHER Reploid little sister who witnessed Ragnarok fall, clings to a stuffed animal she gave her, and has a nostalgic schoolgirl crush on Girouette and/or Zero?

And yet I've still had people [sonic slicer] at me for referring to her as Alouette because I had no "proof."

I guess blatantly obvious hints aren't good enough for some people.

Anyone who didn't think it was allouette the second the artwork for Zx was 1st released needs to be shot. The seiyuu was even exactly the same.

Same goes for ZERO/Girouette

Except Zero isn't Girouette. Girouette simply is a Repliroid that resembles Zero and thus make the hearts of young army leading girls go wild.

Yeah, Zero's soul can't be in two places at once.  Besides, Inti-Zero doesn't have blue eyes.

We can't exactly say that Ciel is Roll or Alia either.

And that would be...?

It's included in the scans, it isn't hard to spot.

Thank you for bringing that up. Notice that the rockmen that fuse with their models have the same color eyes as the model's original character? (ex. X and Vent/Alie have green eyes; Zero from X series and Girouette have blue eyes). However what puzzles me is that any OTHER rockman (excluding Grey/Ashe) has red eyes (Serpent, Helios, Atlas, Thetis, Siarnaq, Albert, Rufus, and possibly Pandora&Prometheus). No one else think that's a little odd?

I've notice that.  Serpent and Albert have Model W/V and since Weil when you see his glass helmet is broken you can see he has red eyes. 

As for the small4 it could be because they are mind controled so it's possible that's the reason their eyes are like that since Giro's eyes turned red when he was controled.

Rufus is a character Sub Tank made for parody sake and is not in ZX at all.

PnP are Reploids made for testing Model W/V by Albert so that's the reason for that.

These are just theories of course except for Rufus.

The small 4's eyes are red because they're mind-controlled, yes.  Grey's eyes were red right after he was activated too, but they faded to green immediately afterward, which is when Pandora showed up talking about how the mind-control didn't work and Grey was therefore defective.

Also, PnP weren't made to -test- Model W.  Albert deliberately tortured them for centuries to drive them into enough of an insanity-driven rage to -fully awaken- Ouroboros.
