Re: iDOLM@STER Xenoglossia

It's better than Love Live, though I've only watched one episode and a few AMV/MADs each.

Re: NBC usage at Loum/Side 5

I thought Dozle bragged about the EF ships being scattered by his Zakus, not the colonies? It has been some time since I last played a Ghiren series game.

Re: ufotable to Produce New Fate/stay night Project

I watched 13-15 at Sakuracon. 14 is supposedly rewritten by Nasu himself, which does some whitewashing/backstory of Caster. There's some very clever Prisma Ilya advertisement inserted in 14 and 15. There's about 8 minutes of 'Chulain action taken out of 14, which would only be available on the Blu R...

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

I always wanted to see the Wing five fighting for Char in his second Axis war, but no official crossovers ever did that. Well, it doesn't happen because there's no way it can make any sense if you're using the characters' actual personalities and motivations. Even EW-era Wu Fei wouldn't be up for i...

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

Pseudo-Hapsburg aristocrats and pseudo-Victorian industiralists are less enjoyable as the enemy faction. They are not futuristic enough for a Gundam series, unlike Zeon or Titans. There are ways to do it right, but it's not right in Wing. Though, it's the first time the spacenoids made the Gundams t...

Re: Code Geass Mecha Thread

Like three Unit 1s? They also reminds me of the proto-Yzak team in Dragonar.

Re: Cross Ange

Given the fact Fukuda knows English (as seen with the apology letter Momoka wrote in episode 7), would he have read Daniel Keyes' Flowers for Algernon? Why, these: 1. Hilda's backstory (Getting stepped over by her younger sister, much like Algernon's protagonist, with the only difference is that Hi...

Re: Mobile Suit Moon Gundam (tentative)

Well that's an interesting read. So originaly, Unicorn was going to be about Moon Moon, and we were going to get the Zeta Plus? (outside of the small grunt scene in episode 7) Even Beecha was going to be a cameo? That reminds me of how much they like to do cameos in Unicorn. I wonder why they never...

Re: Mobile Suit Moon Gundam (tentative)

It's always nice to have such an insight into the deep roots of a work... For instance, I found the idea of starting all with Moon Moon - i.e. one of the most heavily criticized parts of ZZ Gundam (at least by Western fans) - quite "courageous" (or perhaps reckless? :mrgreen: ). I found somehow fun...

Re: Mobile Suit Moon Gundam (tentative)

Eazy Riders with mobile suits? Still better than the box of empty plot we have. Also, it should feature cryo-Haman because why the hell not.

The last episode went just like a comlpilation: there's good people dying, nudity, TUSK BUMP, hand to hand fighting and happiness floating in the air.

Re: "Gicchon"? (Translation Help)

I read that too but can't really condense it. Thanks! Apparently, Saaches' VA was in Beast Wars when he came up with this shorthand.

Re: "Gicchon"? (Translation Help)

According to my tourist/sub watcher's level of Japanese understanding, it is a shorthand of ところがぎっちょん, which is in turn a shortened version of ところがそうではなくて反対なのです - "the opposite is not true"?
