Is it just me are the new mecha created in this episode looks like a Guncannon with those extra arms holding those staffs over the shoulders?
I am certain that is what is intended, albeit in a "weapon arm" extended mount instead of a heavier artillery mount.

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Anime Thread Mk I

Well, I suppose we are going to have a third set, since nothing was truly resolved. Good high action & drama ending, with Io & Darryl passing in the night (of fire) so to speak. Darryl's relief at escaping a tight fight and successfully evacing his team was offset by that jerkass just passively watc...

Re: Knight's & Magic

Episode 3 was good, sidelining monster hunting for tech building. Ernesti won the trust of a king, got permission to build, and then it turned into a Velocity Channel program. :) Good look at what passes for mecha tech, and a shape of things to come. Also, Helvi-senpai. 8)

Re: Why do the bad guys usually have more different models than the good guys?

I think we are getting off topic here. This is supposed to be a discussion on morphological frequency, not a rehash of quality/quantity.

This needs to be animated. That's really all I have to say.
Cat-eared girls, cat-eared mecha, BEM opponents, in-joke names galore.... Yes, this must be made into a PC game and/or 12-part anime. Make it so, Commander.

AH. Only twelve episodes? /pouts/
Summer shows tend to be short, so I am presuming they have 12 episodes to cram in as much fun as possible. Certain summer anime have gone on to great things, so you never know!

Re: Knight's & Magic

The best part of Episode 2 though was Ernesti gleefully hijacking & hacking Dietrch's robot to fight the battleship-sized giant monster and find a way to defeat it.

Re: Knight's & Magic

My work here is done. 8) I do think the main hero's passion is the same as before. To me he has an "awakening" at a pivotal scene and everything returns as part of the moment, so to speak. Having the accumulated life experience as a computer programmer and mecha fan is a big help. Apparently the oth...

Re: Why do the bad guys usually have more different models than the good guys?

The early classic mecha anime like Macross and Gundam were made with rather conventional marketing support. It was still supposedly "kids' stuff" aimed at boys. So there would be a few easily identifiable hero designs, maybe a few more good-guy grunt suits that were sort of like the hero mecha but n...

Re: Megazone 23

The character designs pay great face to the original, no doubt as intended. Komino Masahiko has been in the biz for a while, so he is familiar with classic and current tastes for appealing characters. The #1 characters though, Eve/EVE & the Garland itself, still need to make an appearance though. If...

Re: Knight's & Magic

You are welcome Deathzealot. There have been some good non-franchise mecha anime broadcast this year, so I want members to know they have options. Knight's & Magic (the apostrophe is not a typo) is a light novel adaptation. A friend of mine read the first couple of volumes and demanded this anime go...

Yes, yes, oh god yes is this the real mecha anime hit for the summer time. Serious mecha otaku who could be MAHQ member is content and happy until he gets squashed by a truck. The End. No wait, he is reincarnated into Little Lord Bishiroy in a far-away land where mecha suits run on magic. And he is ...

Great premise! Great mecha! Interesting characters! More implausible scene cuts than Urusei Yatsura: Beautiful Dreamer!

For mecha and mufflers, one might reference Blue Gale Xabungle, which has the sort of tech which might make mufflers a good thing.

Re: So, what are your are your thought about the early-UC and late-UC spin-off manga?

I think you are focusing too much on the superficial elements of Crossbone Gundam . I rather suspect Crossbone GUndam is where Gundam Formula 91 might have ended if the projected TV series had been cmpleted, and carried through on its grand theme of the rise and fall of the Crossbone Vanguard and Co...

With regards to Haman's obsession, it should be perpetually noted that Newtype ESP power is supposed to enable communication between individuals. Haman is a powerful Newtype, so her ability to sync with other Newtypes like Camille and the off-the-charts Judau shouldn't be a surprise as a story eleme...

The seventh OAV was definitely interesting! It is good to see Thunderbolt keeping up with the combination of gritty war story, UC-style adventure, and mecha porn. Reborn Again: Karula, poor thing. She got the last-minute save, but in UC last-minute saves are never easy....or cheap. Tin Man: Daryl, a...

Re: Gundam no Reconguista Movies Thread?

I want to care, and be interested, really I do. But Gundam Thunderbolt and Iron Blooded Orphans sank the interest level worse than a Tier 6 cruiser in a Tier 8 World of Warships scenario. No return potential here....
