Re: Gundam Seed/Destiny Remaster Gets (re)Dub

Side-note: I wonder if this release will force Chris to (re)review Gundam Seed and Destiny? He reviewed Unicorn 0097 after all...hmm... I'd hardly call what I did with RE:0096 a "review." Since they chopped up the OVA to make TV episodes, I did the exact same thing with my reviews. All I did was ta...

Gundam Seed/Destiny Remaster Gets (re)Dub

Thought it was okay to create a new thread since the old remaster threads are...well....old. Anyway, I was surprised to see no one had made a thread about this because I thought this was interesting: Sunrise is going to (re)release Gundam Seed & Gundam Seed Destiny with a new English dub for the rem...

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Anime Thread Mk I

Great PV! When is the episode coming out? EDIT: That was seriously the episode? I am not shocked by the short run-time, I knew that going into it, but I am shocked by the terrible editing at parts, the almost completely incoherent story, and how this seems to be an unfinished project to something th...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Anime Thread Mk I

I am only 5 minutes into the new episode and all I will say is that scene where they play jazz together is utterly charming. The rest of the episode could suck and I will be happy Thunderbolt exists for that scene alone.

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

Except Amon, if Urobuchi does a Gundam show he will only be fully on board for one season (ie: he will write the scripts). And that will be a GREAT season, full of philosophical discussions and world-building...however, the second season will happen with him taking more of an administration role...a...

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

I appreciate watching a Gundam series that has a lower-key finale, with every other series has a big-bombastic final battle with super-weapons, crazy masked men, and lots and lots of head-shots...IBO's is a nice change. I can see where people are coming from by asking for "tension" in terms of a nar...

Shhhh if you listen closely, you can hear all the people who have been claiming Lelouch has been alive for YEARS screaming in delight...

Delta put the focus far too much on the singers in an attempt to develop all of them. Regardless of if you think they succeeded or failed at developing all the members of Walkure I still have to go through the last six episodes, but I can already say I don't think this point is true. The members of...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

My thoughts on the finale and series as a whole. Put simply, I am disappointed. With the numerous plots, rivalries, and backgrounds of the characters on both sides I was hoping for a finale with more ‘punching power.’ Instead what we got was…serviceable(?). It wasn’t bad or terrible, it was okay. Co...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

I thought the OVA was fun, a harmless romp in the GBF/Try universe. Although I gotta say, the kid's reaction to when the little girl disappeared was hysterical. That reaction alone made the silly-harem antics worth it. At least for me. Although I wonder if we will see mecha from IBO in more followup...

Re: The Rains of Castamere

Since it has been a couple years, and considering the 'explosive' events of the last episode this season. I thought it would be fitting to post The Light of the Seven. A song that is sure to spread like wildfire.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Macross has never had any shortage of silly. Frontier had plenty of it, and it's no worse than guys flying jets with guitar shaped controllers shooting speakers at things. Never said Macross was never silly just this takes the cake. I was thrown off by the singing/flying Idols the first time I watc...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Watched the first episode and my opinion still stands regarding the idols flying around. It is out of left-field especially after just finishing Frontier, a little disconcerting, and very VERY silly. However since I knew it was coming I was able to get into it a little better and once the second son...
