Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Yeah I was bit disappointed this episode since they immediately resolved the interpersonal drama between Suletta and Miorine, I guess the writers just don't like letting tension build. I think Ryujin was the first one to guess that Delling and Prospera would be cooperating. Quite surprising consider...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

They were indeed, Rankin-Bass outsourced a lot of work to Japanese animation companies. For another example Voltron was also very successful in the west that they asked Toei to provide additional animation since they changed the story a bit from GoLion.

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Yeah same, based on the 1st episode I expected next to nothing from Guel but he's certainly become the one plotline I'm looking forward to following the whole season. This was a pretty good episode, although I couldn't help think watching it they were addressing a lot of criticism from previous epis...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Ah I didn't know the glowlines were do to subcutaneous permet injections. That makes a lot of sense though, since I interpreted the mother's shocked face in the prologue because she had just found out that Eri could use Permet link but she wasn't the one who injected her with Permet, presumably that...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

As for Permet, it seems similar to Cyber Newtypes in the UC Verse, in that both are somewhat vague. We never exactly get into detail on what makes a Cyber Newtype; While it's left vague in the animation Tomino's Zeta Gundam Novels do touch on the subject. Here's some further reading if you're inter...

Re: Mecha observations from G Gundam

EP 20 - George Beat the Nightmare I had completely forgotten there was a Butler mobile suit. What's more, there's even an MSIA of the Butler. This one seems like a filler episode and based on the animation quality dip I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of this one got subcontracted out while they work...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Miorine's investment in "protecting" Suletta and the Gundam Aerial is for her own sake. As long as Suletta is the Holder, Miorine has a fiancée who's too naive and ignorant to have an agenda of her own and too passive and easily manipulated to stop Miorine from doing exactly as she please...

The main obstacle in modern prosthetics is interpreting those nerve impulses and translating them efficiently into machine code instructions for electrically-driven actuators.

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Couple things I actually find odd about the stigma: As a medical technology, GUND already seems safe. The prologue suggests its only dangerous as an MS technology due to the amount of data. The mystery of Aerial aside, Prospera's already proof that GUND is safe, as she's survived 21~ years just fin...

I'll echo some of Seto's setiments. I didn't care much for this episode, I understand they are shooting for a younger target audience who won't be well versed with corporations, investing, business plans, regulations, etc. but this was episode really feels phoned in. Earth House They started off war...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Yeah the start end and the end of the episode just feel very disconnected. The main MS manufacturers are worried that Delling will overreact and we'll get another prologue episode, but instead his daughter throws up a quickly marked up powerpoint slide and asks for his help and now everything is go...

In the space future, we will not have OSHA.

Space OSHA must have been gutted in the corporate future of A...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

I was surprised by Delling's change of heart and also a bit disappointed since it didn't really feel earned. One thing I've been noticing with the writing in WfM so far is that they tend to deflate the tension before the episode even finishes. There was a lot of great tension in early scenes with N...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

A lot of good tension in this episode, but I found the investment incubator to be a bit silly. Looks like the writers finally addressed the Pharact is a Gundam issue, but it still doesn't answer why Delling turned a blind eye to it since they were gung-ho to go after the Aerial. The business plan th...

Prospera's about to throw Peil Technologies &/or Belmeria under the bus in order to: - deflect suspicion from her as the 'witch' who escaped from the Folkvangr incident. - get in Delling's good graces in order to be in a better position to backstab him later. - get rid of older, more defective ...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Rather disappointed this episode didn't address Pharact being a Gundam. I suppose the argument could be made that Peil technology has more corporate influence to prevent an inquiry as an established player but doesn't really explain why Jeturk, a rival, wouldn't raise hell about it or why Delling do...

Then we have his whole Treize-esque speech on how conflict should be between humans, not remote units, etc. A lot of viewers tend to dismiss this as a self-serving excuse to get rid of Ochs Earth, but what if Delling was absolutely sincere about it? It might be a personal crusade for him. Great per...

Re: The Jegan A-Type's long beam rifle, and some ramblings about the Jegan line.

I suppose phrasing it as licensing was poor on my part, so I'll clarify. What I should have said were "rights" to the aforementioned items. Unlike the days of yesteryear (think the 80s on into early 90s), you could toss in whatever the heck you wanted into your manga without any sort of c...
