Re: Mobile Suit Moon Gundam Manga

mine would be the moon moon thing from ZZ. maybe it will feature a Tuxedo Kamen like character. and he'll be the resident char clone. :D I would totally watch this anime. Especially since I liked the magical girl manga of times gone by. The actual manga here might be interesting, but the MS choices...

Re: Why do people overlook the commanding officer?

I think Iron Blooded Orphans is the best anime in recent years that really shows the working relationship between commander, officer, and pilot for both hero/protagonist and antagonist factions. That being said, the more serious, or at least more earnest mecha anime always have the commanding office...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Mecha Thread Mk I

There's G-Arms anime? I known that Command Gundam appear in SD Gundam Scramble short and later GBF, but I don't think the series itself or the Red Beret Gundam ever get animated. No, the whole paint job, including the infamous Red Shoulder, is a VOTOMS reference. And the name, red head, remote robo...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Mecha Thread Mk I

HGBD Gundam Age II Magnum: Definitely an ace commander's Gundam. Cool dark-and-white color scheme too. HGBD Gundam 00 Diver: Yeah yeah, the Gundam hero's MS is a melee monster, we get it. However, having decided that, it plays to its strengths as fast & hard hitting. The model kit is minimal, so th...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

I just watched the prologue episode on my lunch break. It was good fun in great BF style. Long time members will know which team I favored! :D The two young heroes are only present as spectators though but I didn't mind, as this 'verse spreads its honors around rather evenly.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Anime Thread Mk I

A new Build Fighters anime is always welcome. After seeing the model kits at Gundam Planet I am enthused for this series. The Grimoire Red Beret and the Momo Kapool look like definite favorites for me! :D But the two main Gundams look attractive and the Seravee Scheherezade looks great! Here is Gund...

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

To think that I, who saw the first Star Wars before it was a roman numeral, should have lived to see a follow-on movie greeted with widespread apathy, let alone overt hostility, is a marvel and a thing of grief to me. And I really didn't think it was a bad or mediocre film. It was excellently made, ...

Re: Harmony Gold vs Tatsunoko

I am indebted to Seto Kaiba for the behind-the-scenes financial shell game that has shorted HG for real productive work. The Agrama family are a real piece of work. I suppose having a "Hollywood company" is a good tax dodge, but it sure has screwed all of us for nigh on 30 years. That part broke my ...

One of the reasons I got into watching the stuff traded from Japanese raw tape was so I would never have...

I am still hyped about this movie, if only to see where it is going in explaining the new Not-A-Jedi order that will surely be created. Luke is now the sensei in Obi-Wan Kenobi's previous role. How and what can he pass on to rey to let her continue her balance. Or maybe, the move to a balance of the...

Re: Why do people overlook the commanding officer?

Well, as someone in Martian Successor Nadesico tells its titular cruiser's bubbly-fluffy captain to her face, in modern space warfare a captain isn't really needed anymore. The ships are heavily automated and the crew members know how to use their systems without a lot of direction. So the captain i...

Re: Made in Abyss

I watched this one, and it was one of the more original anime series of 2017. The character design seemed so out of step with the story, but I got used to it and the design made sense as a counter-image of the exploring children versus their dangerous surroundings inside the Abyss. As a D&D-style ga...

Re: Gundam 0083 Rebellion manga

Yes. Reading something quite literally gave you cancer. I'm glad that the short stint of a minor mecha had that profound of an impact on your life. C'mon Deacon, didn't you know that bad cartoon robot designs can give you cancer? It's just like how bad sequels/adaptations can reach back in time and...

Re: Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross

Actually, that makes me even more intrigued. I think I'll just dive right in and give Southern Cross a chance. I haven't seen Robotech in a really long time so my memory's hazy about the second season, but I figure I ought to see it's original form, just like I did for SDF MAcross, which I ended up...

The Musai class, of whatever UC story variation. It is a no fuss, no muss, combat space ship. It is laid out in a straight line, every thing in its place with no wasted space, fast & manueverable, great fields of fire for the main armament, and (most of all) the MS can launch without hindrance or ex...

Re: Knight's & Magic

On the fifth episode, ( spoilers ) we finally got mecha versus mecha action, and it kicked much booty. Interesting result, since Ernesti & friends did not completely Save The Day. The clever redhead from the Copper Fangs got away with a prize for her patron. The mission nicely grounded the anime, si...

The show is still holding up, and holding its course.
