Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Mecha Thread Mk I

So... Can we presume that Haman's obsession with Char is officially taken to another level?

And anyone here has any grip with the Tristan's legs? I admit that they look unique, but god damn they are ugly. They should had gone with the Mk-II's or the Nu's legs.

Re: Pilot curriculum

Now imagine how much more complex it has to be to learn how to control a twenty-meter-tall, sixty-ton giant, humanoid robot. On top of all the stuff above, you have to worry about the even more daunting challenge of piloting what has to be, objectively, the LEAST efficient possible design for a mob...

Pilot curriculum

One aspect many mecha shows tend to overlook is pilot training - it seems to me that becoming mecha pilots is as easy as born under the right parents. Of course, we all know that is a load of bollock - If anything, mecha are way more complex than our modern tanks, APC, helicopters, etc Just imagine ...

Re: What part of the Minovsky Particle itch you?

You may want to be a bit more familiar with the settings of M particles... Anti-beam coating isn't a part of the Minovsky tech, but a nano-level abrasive coating that vapourizes when it is heated and carry away a large amount of heat energy. I'd speculate that it also forms a vapour wall that block...

What part of the Minovsky Particle itch you?

First, I want to make a comparision between Zombie Virus and Minovsky Particle. A fictional setting may need a somewhat sounded explaination for all of its out-of-this world elements. Zombie Virus fits this bill to the T - a deathly, incurable disease, capable of doing the impossible - detroying the...

Re: The charm of semi-canon mechs

Hmm... So the "gap-filling" effect does play some role in this matter. So, in that logic, can I ask this: Do you like a semi-official design with fleshed-out story better, or something that does not? I do think that thanks to Ark Performance, the semi-cannon designs in Gundam are gaining traction, s...

The charm of semi-canon mechs

Why is the mecha fandom is in love with semi-canon - a.k.a originated from spin-offs - machine? Is it because the artists are free to express their original ideas (such as with Getter Robo mangas)? Or is it because there is always little screen time for those machines and as such they become more my...

Re: Amuro Ray Postwar EFF Service

Actually, in a sequel manga to Origin, Amuro was discharged and then he decided to move back to Side 7 and assisted the reconstruction effort there. Dunno what happened next, though.

What aesthetic features you expect on mecha designs of different ages?

Anyone can tell that mecha designs can be categorized into the ages which they originate. But then, what aesthetic features that charactirize the uniqueness of an era? For example, in my opinion, the uses of overly-sharp angles began to occur with designs in the late 90s.

Re: Gundam unfeasible for Doujins?

...that doesn't help at all. Touhou fans make and sell tons of adult doujinshi too. In fact, I think the only franchise that might outclass Touhou in that department is Kantai Collection. Then again, Gundam has many "black" unofficial commercial works already (and they keep piling). So the market m...

Re: Is Tomino's work an acquired taste?

To me at least, the worst problem to G-Reco is that it is too complicated and simply doesn't suit Tomino. Like what people have been saying before me, that Tomino is a great idea man but not really a good executioner. That is correct, and Tomino is best when his ideas are presented in a simple and l...

Gundam unfeasible for Doujins?

I've been to a fair share of anime convention (in Japan and other nations) and it always occurs to me that even when a Gundam series after SEED Destiny is at its highest peak and attracting a good number of Japanese fans, there is always less than ten new doujins written about it per year and sold. ...

Re: Why did OYW atmospheric aircrafts were designed that bad

If it is of any consolation to False Prophet or anyone else, Kazuhiza Kondo's manga series Vanishing Machine , makes a number of changes to some of the aircraft's designs. For starters, the Mongoose (MSV) is pretty much an A-10 Hog armed with a belly autocannon . There's also a Sukhoi-esque version...

Why did OYW atmospheric aircrafts were designed that bad?

The Federation's Gunperry and Medea, and all of Zeon's atmospheric aircraft designs are ridiculous stuffs, designs which break not only the laws of aeronautic but common sense too. So why then they are that badly designed? I mean, they did not apply even the basic physic law to them! And if you look...
