Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk IV

I'm fine with Hush. He was introduced as an entitled little ZOINKS who thought he was destined for greatness for no reason, then reality smacked him upside the head so hard that he saw the tears of time and realized he didn't want to be the next Katz, so he wizened up, relinquished his foolish drea...

Re: Power Rangers (Post PR Twitch Marathon) Discussion Thread

Unfortunately, all too often the Red Ranger in Sentai is made an enthusiastic idiot so he can be the "kid appeal character". The problem is, since Red is always the team leader, that means he needs to succeed despite being an idiot, and in way too many instances they forgo giving him other positive ...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk IV

Honestly, the issue with Rustal doesn't bug me so much for a few reasons. One, it's not like it was presented as a presto-chango magical shift in alignment where he woke up the morning after it happened and said "My God, I've done such horrible things!" As I said before, the context of the epilogue ...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

I wouldn't expect an American release, because Sony requires Playstation games released in America to have an English vocal track and that would delay the game and jack up the price. However, there will be an English release for Asian countries, which is what you can pick up instead. You'll have to ...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

Well, we're getting a Jesta at least.

Personally, I was disappointed to hear that the Taurus would only be a Striker in this game. Noin deserves her due, dammit.

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk IV

Murderous dictators do not become benevolent leaders just because "the public eye is on them." They don't become benevolent leaders because the social order is destabilized. That was the entire point I was making: Rustal is NOT a benevolent leader, and he more than likely will never become one. How...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk IV

IIRC, Almirya said that she would share McGillis' fate as his wife. So, I do wonder if something happened to her in the end. Though I really don't want to spark any "You watched it wrong!" debates, I do think there's a right and a wrong way to interpret the ending. Rustal didn't have some kind of Eb...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk IV

You know, for all the talk about how "realism doesn't matter", you guys sure seem fixated on the idea of Rustal getting swift, abrupt karma for his actions. You're making it sound like you wanted a bolt of lightning to rip its way out of the crystal-clear sky and fry him. Besides, if you really thin...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk IV

Anyway, I suppose I might as well throw my thoughts in here too. Generally, I was okay with how the show ended. As people pointed out, the series started going in Yakuza-esque directions once Tekkadan joined Teiwaz, and even moreso in the second season when Orga started imitating Naze. Well, as any ...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk IV

Except Amon, if Urobuchi does a Gundam show he will only be fully on board for one season (ie: he will write the scripts). And that will be a GREAT season, full of philosophical discussions and world-building...however, the second season will happen with him taking more of an administration role......

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

Yeah, that's the reference that the Japanese Wiki cites regards to the railgun.

Also, it seems they're going to release a model of the Dantelion from Tri-Age, meaning we'll finally get hard stats for this elusive SOB.

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk IV

I don't see Julietta doing anything of significance, really. She's essentially Gjallarhorn's equivalent of Mikazuki, the soldier who unquestioningly obeys their boss out of loyalty, and that's gone completely unchallenged up to this last episode where Rustal admits to being one of the "bad men" that...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk IV

I did have a funny "April Fools" ending in mind. Mikazuki actually does end up getting absorbed into the Barbatos, Gjallarhorn brings it in, and when Rustal comes to get a look at "Tekkadan's White Demon", it springs to life and swats him like a fly. ...Oh, and Iok suffers a fatal case of diarrhea o...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

Don't get me wrong tho, I do think some of those games would be cool because certain MS would never get made in the Vs. format otherwise. It's just not gonna happen, even as a discount or download-only title because there's not enough interest to justify it or to make the production costs back. The ...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

The main issue, at least as far as I see it, is that the era to do individual Vs. games for every single Gundam series has passed - if it ever existed in the first place. The first game was based off of the original show and the sequel was based off of Zeta; besides that being a logical progression,...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk IV

Maybe what'll happen is Gaelio will turn on Rustal, but not in a military sense. Because he's a first-hand witness to the kind of shady underhanded dealings that have been going on, he could reveal this to the world and get Rustal discredited in order to force Gjallarhorn to take accountability for ...
