Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Mecha Thread Mk I

They do indeed. I eagerly await the pictures and technical details.

But those Zeon and Recongista suits. O__O Mad love for those, especially the leader's Griamore.

Re: GUNDAM BUILD DIVERS

Ah, Build Fighters universe, have you been restored to us? In the same year supposedly as Lelouch's glorious return and Fanfnir The Beyondo!, say it ain't so. There's even that hopelessly perverted and cheep Darling in the Franxx going right now. It feels like the next 2013 of mecha anime. Great pro...

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

My utter lack of motivation to bother posting my thoughts until now should explain what my opinion of the movie is. As to Areku, the simple explanation is that only something the size of the Raddits (or whatever it's name) can can pull off what we saw. It also DIDN'T go to lightspeed and then ram, b...

Re: The Last Jedi

At least you put Phantom Menace above the Force Awakens. I always had a soft spot for that one, despite the seemingly eternal hatred it receives everywhere. It was on spacebattles forum, where most people were complaining like yourself about the mechanics issue. And several people pointed out variou...

Re: The Last Jedi

The physics break actually makes sense when studiously observing the physics involved. I've watched whiners shriek over it, but not shriek over the fact that it's based off something physically impossible, by our standards, to start with. I really liked one post on another forum in particular that s...

Re: The Last Jedi

The supposed spoilers I've seen had better not be true. And so far it appears they are more and more sounding confirmed. If even half are true, then this movie will not be for me. I hope it's given a better reception. Heck, I hope the spoilers aren't true. But so far visual guides and stuff seem to ...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

I am rather conflicted by this episode. The humor killed the atmosphere for me, and the character dilution continues with full force, and not even Hamon and Ramba Ral are enough to save it for me. Though Sayla comes darn close... First off, the Zabis again. Garma is showing himself to be quite diffe...

Re: Legend of the Galactic Heroes to get a new anime.

I fear less story as a given. No way are they doing 100 episodes of this, and the 105 or so I watched weren't even the whole of the saga. It's too momentous, too epic in scope for modern anime to appropriately give. And, alas, a trifle too long-winded near the end. Perhaps a shortening would not hur...

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

I agree with Dustman's points. It was a series of brilliant potential that squandered almost every last piece of it. I would almost say it was systematic, except that it wasn't. It was exactly as Okada envisioned, down to orphans digging int he dirt as our finale. What I wish would be done is a swee...

Re: Legend of the Galactic Heroes to get a new anime.

I don't think I'll be able to accept the new designs. None of them really look like themselves. And if we're going with bizarre hair colors like Kircheis, why is Yang's changed? Agh. *Closes eyes* Nevermind. We'll probably still have to wait another hundred years anyway for this to actually be relea...

Re: Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross

All I will say is that Orguss did not impress me. I got a bit tired of seeing Chirams destroy themselves. Frankly, my memories of it have aged worse and worse with time. Oh, those lost hours that cannot be redeemed. . .

Re: Legend of the Galactic Heroes to get a new anime.

I don't like the bishification of Yang Wen Li, he looks too young. Or is the timetable different from where I'm thinking? And the black hair... *snarls*... he looked cool in blue. Oh well. I don't care. I will watch it just for the revamped Alliance ships and the Brunhilde. Oh, Brunhild. You look am...

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.

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 ...
