Re: Gundam no Reconguista Movies Thread?

Hmmm I guess it seems to be similar to what he said in the original lecture cited in the old thread, that they would make movies 2 and 3 if 1 was well received.

Re: Gundam no Reconguista Movies Thread?

i don't think there's two separate movies or projects here. - It was reported that Tomino said in a lecture that he was working on a compilation movie last year spring and that it would be out by November 2016 but nothing came out of it. - Then in November 2016, an animator twitted that a G-Reco mov...

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

I don't know why but that art style bothered me a lot in AGE but didn't in Orphans, even for the characters where it was more prominent. I suspect the reason why they went with it was to showcase that they are children fighting in a real bloody war, the more mature looking characters like Orga and A...

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

Kimaris in theory should have data recordings of the event, unless it was stored in the cockpit and was destroyed when it was attacked by the sword. But more evidence wouldn't hurt I guess regardless. Rustal was in that advantageous "they don't know that we know" camp even if he was aware that Rusta...

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

I think McGillis would have likely attempted it if Gaelio revealed himself at any point like the way he did in the anime though the meeting would have to happen a different way than the Mars one if the mobile armor never rampaged Mars. Gaelio being alive by itself would have revealed how vulnerable ...

Well there's only so much you could do when you're outnumbered two-to-one and the other side has like a lot of Deinsleifs...... He was a pretty terrible assassin though which ultimately led to his downfall and most of not all of his problems in Season 2 and the decisions he was forced to make as a r...

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

I was thinking more on her elaborating the public discussion that led to it as opposed to what Rustal was thinking in his head.

The death of three families for example was a good example of one of the factors that led to the reforms that was public knowledge. So more points that are similar to that.

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

Rustal is mostly a pragmatist for the most part so I can see him doing this if the winds are blowing that way and it wouldn't be hard to speculate, however I think the show could do a much better job of explaining general rational as opposed to us having to guess it. It wouldn't take long, 30 second...

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

I seriously doubt they could have afforded to stay neutral given the weight of Rustal's and the council's after winning the Earth battle. Turning a blind eye to McGillis passing is one thing, not actively deploying when the big boss asks you is another especially after McGillis's true bloodline was ...

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

Finale (and the last 6 eps, really) makes you wonder if there was really any need to advancing AV tech, or Gundam frames, or any other MS when they show us that the best resolution for any problem is to Dainsleif the hell out of it. My theory is that the there's a limited amount of materials during...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Not really relevant anymore since the role of Hikaru was long ago officially recast for video games. If he were to appear in anime, it would presumably be with the new actor voicing him. Didn't Kawamori once said something about not wanting to bring him back in the anime because he was very upset/i...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Hikaru likely won't appear in any case due to the unfortunate incident with the real life voice actor a long time ago. I'd personally be fine if Minmay and Misa has wrinkles, it would be nice way to mark the passage of time.....just going on in the Macross world just like decades has also passed in ...

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

Well, what's better for sequel movie/OVA (assume that it get one)? 1. If Rustal survive the show, then it's one of the darkest endings in Gundam. The world get back to how it used to be, all major bad guys alive and well (even Izanario probably get back to his throne with a new boy on his side). Te...

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

Bael's swords were breakable after all - proves they are just extremely durable About this, I remember discussing elsewhere that one of Bael's original swords got displaced during the first fight with Kimaris Vidar. If McGillis replaced it with an inferior replica later on in the weeks/months that ...

Bael's swords were breakable after all - proves they are just extremely durable Once broken, McGillis lost his composure. Perhaps he shouldn't have thrown away his other blade. Ya he shouldn't have in hindsight, though I can see what he was going for. Likely going to crush the cockpit directly. Per...

Could be the other new Gundam, a new one from the "opened vault". Might even be Rustal's though not necessarily piloted by him.

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

Seems that the 1/100 repeats the Rare MS Frame materials are used for the swords, instead of the lost technology metal. Not surprising since it's parroting it, but I guess that strengthens that idea further.

Speaking of McGillis, how did he get back into Tekkadan's base from that cliff anyways?

I don't think Gjallahorn just let him walked in.........
