Re: Please name this anime!?!?!

Based on the description it sounds like Orguss 02. Also please keep in mind there's a dedicated thread for these kinds of requests.

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

This is a really sweeping generalization and I don't know why you're posting it in a thread where the majority of complaints about the show had nothing to do with it breaking a power fantasy. Also, the idea that Tekkedan is more of a power fantasy than the Operation Meteor boys or Celestial Being on...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

In an ideal world, every Gundam era would have its own self contained Vs. game and Musou spin-off. But when only CE was big enough to muster its own Vs. games and G-Reco and IBO don't even have standalone games of any kind (I think? Do they even have a mobile game?), it just doesn't make sense for N...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Yeah it's kinda sad that the show ended up being so underwhelming that people weren't even angry enough to complain about it.

What does everyone think of the claim that the general beats of Delta's plot mirror that of Macross 30's a little too much?

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Let me be clear, I don't think Walkure itself is a problem. I think that the time they spent on them could have been spent on more IMPORTANT things in the story (like actually resolving the conflict). Additionally, besides Freyja, Hayate, Mirage (and that is being generous), Messar and Mikomu, what...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Delta put the focus far too much on the singers in an attempt to develop all of them. Regardless of if you think they succeeded or failed at developing all the members of Walkure I still have to go through the last six episodes, but I can already say I don't think this point is true. The members of...

Re: Say Mecha Talk, Lets Have a Brave Series Topic!

There's a very high probability that all Brave shows will finally be available in English within a few months, however discussing the details of this is against forum rules.

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

Those last two deals are the same ones from last December minus the Banshee Norn for the first one I believe.

Also if you guys are still doing the Full Boost sessions, where do you schedule things? The Gundamn page hasn't updated since last June.

Re: Queries On Super Robot Wars

MNeidengard's SRW plot summaries are generally meant to be read either alongside playing the game or after when you have an overall understanding of the setting. They're not line by line transcripts or have detailed descriptions of on screen events unfortunately. The author made it clear that he tra...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

So there's a massive PSN sale on Full Boost right now where you can get the game digitally plus all the DLC for around 9500¥. Normally all the DLC by itself costs 15K¥. In light of what was revealed about Force and the lack of any news about Maxi Boost getting a PS3 port, is now a good time to nab F...

Re: It's Gundam Wing's 20th anniversary

I also remember hearing back in the day that when the show aired in Arabic countries, Relena's skirts were digitally lengthened to her ankles. Never saw any proof. I didn't catch that particular detail, but there's some merit to it because I did catch a scene where women wearing bare shoulder dress...

Re: Say Mecha Talk, Lets Have a Brave Series Topic!

Definitely Fighbird because it's the earliest Brave show available. Followed by J-Decker unless you can nab Da-Garn first.

Re: Say Mecha Talk, Lets Have a Brave Series Topic!

J-Decker is definitely one of the better Brave shows, though I wouldn't call sharing a director with Might Gaine a point in its favor. :p The drama and humanization of the Brave Police can a get a little over the top and stupid at times, and I really wish Ishida Atsuko toned down the character desig...

All MG kits of the Wing Ka., Wing Zero Custom and Proto Zero have the same upper chest hatch design regardless of the bottom hatches shown in the anime.

Re: Tales Series

I think the story could refer to both of them.

Piggybacking the final boss is a bit tricky because you have to do it from his light pillars or Sword Deluge. His physical attack makes him invincible for the duration.

Re: Metal Armor Dragonar- Gundam 's forgotten cousin.

I think the Gun Jem squad worked out alright within the goofy confines of the show. Better that than some overly serious Ramba Ral knock-off which we kind of already got briefly early in the show with that old Giganos sergeant living in the abandoned space base. And for crying out loud you're at epi...

Re: Regarding scale in the Robot Spirits Gundam releases

Did somebody say scale? RS Wing Zero TV is around 12.5 cm. A rough calculation puts him at around a 1/133-ish scale. I forgot the exact height of MSIA Wing Zero TV, but I recall he was somewhere around 1/170 or 1/180-ish. I don't think the scale is consistent with the entire line though. Applying t...
