Made in Abyss

Seems like no body talked about this here. I read the manga and just finished watching the anime. The anime gets to chapter 26 of the manga(sans last scene of it), the manga is at chapter 42 now. It did a pretty good adaptation job, some filler is added, but not much.(Though some see it as causing o...

Re: Skycrapers in Space Colonies

To the best of my recollection (admittedly, it has been a number of years since I watched anything UC Gundam, where O'Neill I-3 cylinders are most prevalent), the buildings inside of colonies are rarely very tall. I certainly do not remember ever having seen any skyscrapers, for instance, inside of...

Re: Skycrapers in Space Colonies

From a simple calculation, at 250m, you get about 0.07g less gravity than "ground" level in an O'Neill Cylinder Island 3 type colony (i.e. UC ones) Whether that is acceptable is up to your speculation. This is the formula: a = 4π^2R/ T^2 where "a" stands for acceleration (in ms^-2, you divide 9.8 to...

Re: Dijeh ground only MS?

Dijeh is supposed to be the ground version of Rick Dias. According to Gundam Encyclopeadia Ver. 1.5, it is actually modified from the Rick Dias left on Earth by AEUG, they kept the frame and avionics while ditching the Space equipments. So it shouldn't be able to work in space unless they reequipped...

Re: Knight's & Magic

Interesting. So there is more material in the Light Novels then? So we can have a second season for the anime in the future? That said, one of my most major complaints with this series is that Ernesti has too much Mecha Otakuness that it makes him seem like what you mentioned. He is to much into Me...

Re: Knight's & Magic

/Raised Eyebrow/ Oh? I kind of liked that part. If they do the Second Season I want this Age of Airships to be the center of it. I don't have a problem with the future, but the part where Ernesti denied the existence of warships. The original and published novel didn't have him utter words about de...

Re: Knight's & Magic

I'm actually surprised they can screw up the story so much in K&M. Considering the script writer is pretty experienced(Patlabour, Ranma 1/2, You're Under Arrest, Cowboy Bebop, to name a few) this is just unexpected. I must admit that the original story isn't really good for fitting into a single sea...

Re: Can Space Colonisation discourage war?

Probably the most telling detail of the whole logistical problem with long-range spaceflight in UC is that when the Principality of Zeon remnants who'd fled the Earth sphere wanted to start a fight they straight-up flew all of Axis into the Earth sphere instead of trying to shuttle back and forth t...

Re: Can Space Colonisation discourage war?

At least in UC, the EFSF is so discouraged by the logistics and didn't really bother to start a real war with Axis, but just sent in a scout fleet in that many years even though they knew Zeon had a base over there. They also didn't do much to the Mars faction. However, the EF is very passive in all...

Re: In U.C, how close can a space ship goes before it is detected?

Sure, Minovsky particles makes long range detection unreliable at best, but what about visual detection? I did read that if the USS Enterprise were to fly over Mars, the Hubbles could even discern the marking on the hull. No. We have the technology to pick up infrared(heat) signals from Mars, but n...

Re: Knight's & Magic

Wow, this episode kind of made me hate Ernie. I mean, his obsession with robots was already pretty bad, but this week he acted like he cares more about machines than human beings. Also, that part where Eyepatch Badguy was expositing about Engineer Badguy may have been the clumsiest infodump I've ev...

And, the result is we have one more episode left, Heaven & Earth.

Haven't actually watch the episode yet, will do that tomorrow when I have the time to do so.

He should say this a decade earlier, not today. :roll: It is not until recently that the public who don't buy the setting books know of the original name of Unicorn Gundam is Moon Gundam. And he didn't read the novels, not even the OVA version, only the TV version of Unicorn, and he thought that he...

Can a tether that thin survive from the force exert on it in combat situation? Microsats release the tether just for experiments, electrodynamic test or something, not that brutal comparing to combat maneuvers.

Ah, thank you for the info, so the Galbady B was a Luna II made unit, my bad. Because of the other units being made at Pezun I thought it also would've been part of it. Kind of weird that a Anaheim made Hizack would have a recon model made at Luna II... But that model number system doesn't fully ma...

Source? We've gone through this canon crap so many times, and ultimately we still hold on single statement - if it's animate works then it's official. That statement is not even from an official source. <.< "even if that meant it wasn't part of the Gundam canon," Direct Quote from the Director. Her...

Re: How fast can the Newtype brainwave be?

Don't be misled by fiction, Space is huge, and there is hardly "very dense" space. Debris field spread out pretty fast, and larger lumps actually will clear out the smaller ones. Sadly we're talking about fiction here, don't be misled by reality. We can see a very dense debris zone in Thunderbolt, ...

Re: Knight's & Magic

If it is, its not going to be a actual ending to the season, cause there isn't a resolution after that battle in the novel, unless the anime condenses it to just that battle with the dragon followed by driving out the enemy from the kingdom. Given how this ep bypasses a lot of the ground battle wit...

Re: How fast can the Newtype brainwave be?

Would the wire hinder the action of MS/MA in some very "dense" space, like debris field? Furthermore, while wired bits can get the power, signal and even propellant from the wire, they can't distract enemies in the way like wireless funnels. Wired bits can ambush enemies from the cover of asteroids...
