Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

It's also worth noting, and I just realized it, that Red is the color of Loyalty in Chinese (and other eastern cultures probably), a fact probably not lost on savvy Tomino-sama. :) So literally he's wearing "red" as "my color!", while donning the mask and giving everyone that creepy smile, like ther...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Hmm, so that's who she's supposed to be? I was referencing the one from the CGI stuff, but this works. It's still different from the standard uniforms others are wearing. Then again, isn't Ramba Ral wearing blue? So I guess aces get special colored uniforms?

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

It's been a while...but I've now seen PART IV and have watched the 11-minute preview of PART V. This show has shifted beyond the scope of just being a Char origin story. (Not surprising given its source material, but I somehow thought the transition might be more graceful.) PART IV reminded me a li...

Re: After War Gundam X Updates...and Maybe Answers

Good news for Gundam X fans from here to the moon. (sorry, couldn't resist the bad joke) I'm sure many hope to see their curiosity sated after all these years of mystery.

Thanks for sharing this, Count.

While I think that's a good cast with plenty of talent, you just couldn't pay me to care about Seed anymore.
Thank you, Amuro.

Oh, and hey, Soma!

Re: Knight's & Magic

Maybe they're skewing the timeline so the plot events happen faster to fit the number of episodes. It would be jarring for all our younger characters, including our favorite mecha chibi, to age several years in between episodes... Though episode 8 or 9 gave opportunities for this, if they were ever ...

Re: Knight's & Magic

It's a good day to be a mecha fan. This show is a love letter to us. That Tzendolg or whatever it's called is awesome looking, as is the blue one. I wondered what Ernesti could possibly be building, and it turned out better and flashier than I imagined. I was surprised how impressive the new mass pr...

Re: Knight's & Magic

And that end result is worth watching 13 episodes of good summer fun. It's ice cream in anime form, and I'm more than satisfied to savor each bite.

And if I had to have a Gundam... it would look like that sexy blue monster he's going to build.

Re: Knight's & Magic

I'm enjoying the ride. This appears to be just a fun and short anime for mecha fans to watch Ernesti express our love for mecha and fulfill our dream of building one. There's not much deeper meaning to it, and I doubt there's supposed to be... all good. Episode 4 had me laughing with Dixgard's react...

If I could hack magic... well, let's just say there would be a new overlord of the surrounding... continent, in the imminent future, plus the Gundam.

Re: Knight's & Magic

I thought its pacing was right along with oldschool mecha shows. Throw through the nitty gritty parts none of us really need to see, and get to the plot and mecha goodness.

Re: The Last Jedi

I agree with Areku, glad we're actually more on the same page here. And I didn't know some of that stuff they said about the script. Hmm. As for Luke not killing Vader, though, I always hated that scene. I'm too Revanish to not be irked by that. Not kill Vader, sure, but never throw down thy weapon ...

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

If anything, I think it would encourage Sunrise to select more mature character designs in the future. IBO is about the last I want to see of that particular art style. It was ok, I wasn't going to pitch fits over over it. But after AGE, Gunpla Builders and Iron-blooded Orphans, I'm ready for someth...

Re: Front Vents on Mobile Suits

Design preference, rule of cool, and possibly all you mention above play a factor in that... though I would say exhaust or something along those lines. If I had to say, maybe the Zaku and Goufs, different mobile suits though they surely be, have a shared cooling system that differs from some of thei...

Scarf and everything, seriously. The design of his robot body looks too much like the Exia to be coincidence. And I daresay the actor is Setsuna's very own, or one who sounds near-identical.

Re: The Last Jedi

Sounds to me more like dear Nephew was just a Vader fanboy. The canon book Bloodline indicates Ben didn't know his grandfather was Vader until a few years or so before VII... and that presumably things took a bad turn around that time, maybe. Perhaps VIII will know the answers to the questions JJ di...

There is also the possibility that Anakin's ghost did not get along well with the people he tried to murder, especially after they insisted he was irredeemable and stuff. And after they watched Luke burn Vader's corpse, something they could all get behind and laugh, commenced immediately after the c...

Re: The Last Jedi

I don't want to call it "gray jedi order". It is more a question of "balance of the Force". The Jedi and Sith became extreme forces very dedicated to Light and Dark side dominant pathways respectively. The prequels make it clear that the Jedi Knights hurt themselves by becoming monastic & eschewing...
