Aww, as usual, great footage tying the theme together.
 
Though, I'm going to point out that there is nothing adorable about Gundam SD
Its just wrong.

Your new name now is going be tank top Gia. Just Kidding. :)  
 
Golgo 13 is the man. That's why you can't Chibi him.

@John_Martone: Gundam SD is so totally adorable. You are factually in error.
 
@N15PCA: It's true, I like tank tops. I virtually always wear a tank top and a hoodie, although I've tried to broaden my wardrobe a bit....it's mostly that I don't wear t-shirts, pretty much ever. @_@ I just don't like the way they fit, even if they say funny things. :\
 
I was pretty wiggly in the hips in this video though. Kinda weirds me out. And here I thought I was getting used to seeing myself on a screen!

I seen that.  I have a friend who actually like that show back in the day but then again, he also likes to watch terrible movies.

@gia: It'll be fine, you look great, nothing to worry about.
 
SD Orochimaru was weird, I can see him having a SD Sasuke but not the guy himself. Creepy Raper Dudes should never be portrayed as adorable.

As much as I enjoy chibi in anime and manga. I don't believe I've drawn in the style very often.
 
What do you have against chibi Ken-chan, L, and Sephinroth?

@Rover: Hey, I never said anything about GOOD...just cute ;)
 
@Slim: THAT SHIT IS FUCKED UP. GET IT OFF OF MY WEBSITE. AAAAAAAAAAAAGH!
 
@FoxxFireArt: Absolutely nothing at all. As with so much comedy, the manner of portrayal was designed to exaggerate the effect; in which case that these hardcore badass dudes are shrunken down into cutesy cuddly chibis.
 
...Well, okay, except L. I just like him in SD.

@GrandMarshal: I couldn't find diddly squat on the history of the term "super deformed," but I'd gather it comes from the fact that it's a "deformed" version of the adult character. "Deformed" doesn't necessarily have to be a negative thing ;)
 
(Side note: I actually did talk about this a bit originally, but we had to cut it for time: my theory on the origins of Super Deformity is that it, like so many tropes, can probably be attributed to Osamu Tezuka, who often used extra-simplified versions of his characters during "silly" moments and slightly more realistic versions during dramatic ones.)

@gia: 
Hey, do you want to be the one to tell Sephinroth he can't be chibi? 
 
I like the chibi L.
 
I have done a chibi drawing of one of my own original characters, and I did a picture of all the Naruto characters in chibi. It was to celebrate the end of the two year long filler arcs of Naruto. It has everyone reacting to the events of the filler.

If you check it out on my devArt page you can read it easier.

Ummm, guys, don't confuse "Superior Defender Gundam Force" with "SD Gundam". The cel-animated one from the 1980s is pure comedy gold and awesome, whereas the CG one is just plain stupid as hell.
 
Few things are more funny than a Gundam sitting in a lawnchair drinking a margarita and a magazine over it's face while Zakus try to take pockshots at it, yet fail miserably.
 
@Slim: And that is one!
