Re: Mobile Suit Moon Gundam (tentative)

I for one would like to read more about Moon Gundam. I am actually kind of sad that it did not happen, but that's life.

Are there any concept illustrations, or did it not reach the drawing board?

Any more snippets you are able to share without too much effort?

Re: What happens between ZZ and CCA?

EGUM uses the Gabool Bergson and Zakus, I believe. Though I only read that in a Hi-Streamer thread.

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VII

The entire series is spent building up the fact that opening Laplace's Box would spell the end of the Federation No, the series builds on the paranoia of the people trying to protect the secret of Laplace's box because they're convinced it will be catastrophic for the Federation, and others fear th...

While you're on the topic, do you have any details to share about the Char's Return game book?

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VII

The earlier shows point out that Zeon attacked the other spacenoids and that in turn very few in space want anything to do with them. But then Unicorn presents them as a rallying point, literally calling them a light that attracted them. Zeon was light for spacenoids, at least Zeon Deikun's philoso...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VII

If the production had actually commited to defining Zeon and it's problems, things would be different. But why does it need to commit more time to defining Zeon and its problems, when that's been clearly developed through three series and a movie? Not to mention that their malicious motives and dub...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Mecha Thread Mk IV

Well I suppose Laplace's Box is the main objective, but still, it would be overly optimistic to think that the Federation would just let them get away with it. I think the OVA version makes a lot more sense, well, if we had a confirmation of what the fleet was doing. I think it makes most sense that...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Mecha Thread Mk IV

Considering how few ships were seen in episode 7 -- and I find it hard to believe Frontal would pull any punches for what was his endgame here -- I assumed that there were simply more ships crushed in between Palau's asteroids than originally believed. I can't remember exactly what happened in Char...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VI

I'm still not sure if FF is a brainwashed Char (due to Lalah's line in the sub I watched) or just a programmed clone, but I feel that if anyone was out of character in this episode, it was this guy. It became prevalent to me when the most trippy Newtype visions began, with FF seemingly taking Banag...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Mecha Thread Mk IV

The lack of Geara Dogas might suggest that they are pretty much extinct. Sleeved Zaku III confirmed. As my favourite MS, it sad to think about but then again we do not know. Out of four Musakas confirmed to survive the battle of Palau, only 2 are seen destroyed by the series end. At the same time w...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VI

I don't understand how one can be a fan of the franchise for a long time and then suddenly going so negative for... no apparent reason. It's kinda disheartening. It's not hard to understand, really. If one invests a lot of their time and attention towards a franchise, they're eventually going to ge...

Re: Rewrite Gundam ZZ

I'm not a big fan of Moon Moon, but the Tigerbaum sub-arc is one of my favourites. As much as I like it, I think that the whole series is a bit disjointed. The earth arc is reasonably solid, but the final arc should have been so much more. Needs a better build up and a better execution. That said, w...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Mecha Thread Mk III

What strains credulity is that after getting the pulp beat out of them, failing in their primary goal, and losing their leader, Char's Neo Zeon turn around and not only replaces their losses from CCA, but actually get upgraded models (Geara Zulus instead of Geara Dogas), plus get their hands on ano...

Because the aesthetic design of a single mech has always had such a huge impact on narratives. :roll: Seriously, I get not liking it (I think the fan art was cooler), but to say it will RUIN THE STORY?

Re: Chars Counter Attack, suddenly have a question.

There don't seem to be any real answers in animation itself, (as far as I know) other than the suggestion that the high end units were destroyed or seized during Glemy's rebellion and the ensuing fight with the Earth Federation. As for the grunt suits, we should take into account that during Char's ...

Re: Watching the UC series for the first time

I think in the case of 0083 (and possibly 08th MS Team) that release order is better. I think MSG straight to Zeta, or 0080 to Zeta would be less jarring.

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Mecha Thread Mk III

So is "One of Seventy Two" intended to be canon then? It sure seems like Sunrise want it to be.
