Re: The Last Jedi

he did kinda choke some of Jabba's guards because i guess that was okay or something that one time. on the other hand he also officially earned his Jedi stripes by refusing to kill his father, throwing down his saber, and telling the Emperor to go eat all of the dicks, so i'm not sure how gray a Je...

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

I was expecting her to fit into some UC or AU box, but IBO was very much about "this is our own box" so to speak for many things. I was certain Julietta was cute Gundam roadkill like poor Lafter, but she survived & actually learned something about the motive and spirit of people who are gonna climb...

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

Cybastar: Now, I don't want to give Rustal Elion too much credit for building success from the downfall of McGillis & Tekkadan. I do give him credit for realizing Gjallarhorn as presented in the course of the show was at best obsolete and at worst prone to reflexive oppression in order to keep exis...

Re: Frame Arms Girl

The show automatically won me over with the appearance of the Legendary Kotobuki Nippers and continued with Gourai's assessment of time spent assembling figures/models. 15% = finding tools 15% = researching kit on Internet 15% = finding parts on runner 50% = fighting the carpet monster 5% = assembli...

Re: Pilot curriculum

I think a lot of the "Gundam hero" criticisms are confusing ability and training, which are different things. Training and enabling the average guy to become a mecha suit pilot is good. Training and enabling the guy with exceptional ability is better! That is the baseline difference between Mecha Ac...

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

I'm very glad to read your post, Zeonista, especially the bit on Julietta. So many hated her and desired her dead, but I was always a fan and was glad to see her survive. She even develops at the end of the story to some extent, and I was pleased with that, if nothing else. I was expecting her to f...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Anime Thread Mk I

How does anyone here think of the scene between the golden-trimmed Zaku (Royal Guard?) and the GM at the beginning of the episode? I just don't understand why didn't the Zaku pilot make a conscious retreat to the nearest cover - standing right there and shooting at an enemy you know your bullet won...

Frame Arms Girl

What, no one has started a topic on this show yet? C'mon guys, it is a story about a girl and her mecha musumoid club. It's a bit of a cross between Hand Maid May , Gundam Build Fighters , and a Revoltech/Figma catalog. Not that it's a bad basis for an anime though.... Some MAHQ members should be mi...

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

Given the events of the past several episodes since McGillis Fareed made his announcement, I am reminded again that many of the seminal Japanese heroes of history & legend are beautiful losers. To wit, they fail in their earthly goals, but their accomplisments and honor redeemed in blood make them e...

Watched this continuing episode last night. I haven't watched December Sky yet (bad Zeonista) so the A Baoa Qu scenes were a nice transition piece. The skipping along to the Remnant Years portion of the story was handled well. The episode made a positive impression on me. albeit for different reason...

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

Damn, this was not the final fight, and it was intense! I guess McGillis & Orga have one more chance to win at Mars, but it will definitely be more difficult than before. It is a heartbreaker but exhilerating & a little triumphant at the same time. Sort of like watching Zeta Gundam for the first tim...

Re: [Interview] - The Case for Gundam F91 - Settling Rumors

Thanks a bunch for providing this interview. It sheds some light on the production, its rapid production, and the adaptation of the story. I have a renewed sympathy for the movie staff, and a bit more wisfulness that they had some more time to get things together.

These things were in my mind when I mentioned the lack of expertise in a training squadron filled with experienced pilots.
