Re: The Official Sign In/Out Thread

The wife and I are expecting a newborn any week now, so when that happens I'll be gone for a bit until we settle into our new routine for the family.

Re: Muv Luv Alternative?

I watched Kimi Ga Nozomo Eien back in the days of dial up, heard it had a super robot pseudo-sequel and laughed it off at the time thinking it was a joke. Now Muv-Luv Alternative is around the corner, so I guess I'll have to read up on how a typical romantic drama segued into a mecha series.

Re: Your Favorite Non-Gundam Anime Soundtracks/Songs

Eyeshield 21's first 4 OP which is Breakthrough, Innocence, Dang Dang and Blaze Line. Then first two ED: Be Free and Blaze Away. There are few great insert songs but can't remember the names, this series got a lot of great songs I can remember the tune despite not having watched it for 14 years. Ey...

Re: Gundam Thunderbolt Timeline?

Before their acquisition of Sotsu in 2019, people theoretically can still obtain the license from Sotsu to publish their own manga/novel/toys.[anime is not theoretically possible because of Sunrise's existence] no one is doing so just because Bandai has the sole right to plastic models and making y...

Re: L-Gaim and Five Star Stories

Bonus crossover points, the latter of those two is another spin on the L-Gaim, the Mk. II in this case. And then there's the White Mirage (or possibly Weiss Mirage) which started out as Nagano's design for the Double Zeta. Fascinating. I'm not familiar with FSS so I did a quick look on the White Mi...

Re: Your Favorite Non-Gundam Anime Soundtracks/Songs

Macross in general has some really great musical numbers. I'm quite partial to the DYRL version that go wonderfully with the animation but Macross Plus is a close second. Nice futuristic sound that would fit right in a Bladerunner style setting.

Re: Endra Class

I am surprised there is no manga showing what Amuro was doing after he joins Karaba in Zeta (and stops showing up in the story) or what he was doing in ZZ Gundam. Could sell a lot of manga telling this story. I not not read Moon Gundam but since you said it is sort of a prequel to CCA does it show ...

Re: Gundam Thunderbolt Timeline?

I am not sure how many are operating concurrently, but at least 11 distinct primary production groups are mentioned in Sunrise's late 2010s, not counting Sunrise's in-house tweening group, CG animation group, and the Beyond team that used to be part of Xebec. Gotcha, thanks. I had also forgotten Su...

Re: Gundam Thunderbolt Timeline?

I haven't seen confirmation of which Sunrise studio worked on each project, but apparently the studio that did Thunderbolt is now doing Hathaway. Do we know how many in-house studio teams Sunrise has? I've also heard a rumor the G-Reco folks were working on Hathaway but that didn't make a whole lot...

Re: Gundam Thunderbolt Timeline?

I haven't seen anything official but a lot of the technology in Thunderbolt is pretty anachronistic, so it makes sense that its more of a UC What if? (kind of like Gundam X) than mainline UC continuity. Also as Kuruni mentioned if there's no concern about contradicting the official setting that coul...

Re: Nomenclature with Weapons on a Ship (UC)

主砲 means the main guns used on the ship(like the main battery[主砲] on the Yamato are the 460mm and the secondary battery[副砲] are the 155mm), it doesn't really signifies if it fires shells or beam. It's also possible they are using main and secondary battery to distinguish between roles instead of ju...

Re: Some observations and questions about 80s cartoons

What I meant was that since Thundercats was rebroadcast many years later a new generation of people watched it without nostalgia glasses on since it was their first time seeing it.

Re: Nomenclature with Weapons on a Ship (UC)

All the terms I pulled were from MAHQ not from Gundam Wikia. I'm glad to hear MPC and MP Gun are one and the same and just a translation artifact. Main Gun = Main battery makes plenty of sense, however, I don't think it is referring exclusively to non-beam weaponry. As E08 points there are several Z...

Nomenclature with Weapons on a Ship (UC)

Good afternoon everyone, I've been wondering about the naming conventions for weapons on the various ships in Gundam and I'm hoping you can help unravel the mystery here for me. I was looking over the various types of Salamis and Musais in the various series and then I noticed something interesting ...

Re: Least Powerful/ Weakest Gundams?

I have to say Yazan was my favorite character to add into the mix in RoJR, nothing better than two old types with incredible skills on opposing sides. As for weakest Gundam if we want to consider how long the model survives as a factor then the Victory Gundam could be a contender, after-all it launc...

Yeah I'm really hoping SRW 30 does well because I'd love to have VXT be available for sale in the states since they're already in English. I knew when it was first announced it hit the top 10 on Steam immediately, so hopefully sales will be strong. I ended up going with the deluxe edition, I don't n...
