He even claimed, on a number of occasions, that the Japanese staff behind the original shows thought Robotech was better.
Changed it to an original show, Southern Cross to be specific, and there might be margin of truth in this :mrgreen: .

Re: Tis a good day for Megaman

IIRC, the intro is lifted directly from Rockman games, it's 20XX when humans and robots live in harmony XD .

Oh, and at one point Shishioh Guy is the one who stop Forte/Bass (both voiced by Hiyama) and even point out why he can't beat Rock as he is.

The funny part is that if the student does bad job, the teacher will tell them to look up Wikipedia XD . But of course, the proper way is to look up what it's citing.

Re: The obsoletion of MS-manned gun emplacements

Well, the Einrad and Twinrad are better than most of the older SFS. They have extra weapons and can fly, but they also have good defense too.

Re: TV Tropes lists ZoE's Jehuty as a super prototype, even though it isn't

I think that's the selling point of GM II. They can upgrade the old OYW-era GM to GM II at supposely cheap cost (and this carry on to GM II > GM III upgrading). On funny note, while not mecha anime, the best examples of super prototype are various creation myth. Usually the first humans were created...

Re: TV Tropes lists ZoE's Jehuty as a super prototype, even though it isn't

IIRC, Jehuty's data was used to develope Vic Viper. So while isn't direct prototype, it does fit the broad definition of the trope.

Re: What were the Gundams from Wing, 00, and IBO?

I'm pretty sure that while we known what Astaroth Origin look like, it's never used in the manga. After beating Vual, they get most parts back but it's not complete, and then Astaroth got upgraded to Astaroth Rinascimento instead. Dantalion and Gremory, however, are likely close to their original fo...

Re: Applying the five-man band trope in a real robot anime

The trope is one of the most misuse on TV Tropes. It's kind of understandable when listing six with one being Sixth Ranger, but I've seen too many examples listing 7 or 8 characters. Although the trope is mostly associated with Super Sentai/Power Ranger, the originator is actually normal music bands...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

There's one bit I noticed about Deinsleif. Despite its awesome penetrating power, its effect on mechanic is surprisingly low (it's possible that mobile weapon engineering of Calimity War and PD era is simply very good). Amida's Hyakuren, Barbatos LR, and Gusion RF are still functional well enough de...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk III

This was mentioned to be the reason why not more than the initial batch were produced. That being said, Dantalion (the 71th) is said to developed using combat data from previous Gundam units and completed just before the end of Calamity War. So if it's really "initial batch", then said batch last t...

Re: Why do people overlook the commanding officer?

I don't think you understand the role of a real captain. Except what Zeonista said is come from context of Nadesico . It's what said in the show, his understanding is irrelevant. IIRC, pretty much the crews of Nadesico are there to "train" Omoikane. Of course, ultimately they have to keep crews on ...

Re: How can OZ mass-produce Virgos with Gundanium Alloy?

Actually, I think I found the answer. It's because the Mercurius and Vayeate were Super Prototypes of the Virgos, and usually in a mecha anime series, prototypes are more powerful than the mass-production models. Huh? Pardon me, but what's the purpose of this thread again? You asked about how OZ ca...

4. There are no dangerous weapons, only dangerous people.
I used to think so, until I heard stories of people die or maimed by weapon malfunction.

Yes, dangerous weapons exist. They aren't designed that way, and that's what make them dangerous.
