Re: Gundam General Audience?

That's a great point, population growth and the increasing number of viewers each year can definitely sway a popularity poll.

Re: Development of the Biosensor and Psycommu

How canon is EVOLVE ? EVOLVE 's 9th episode features the QRX-006 Geminus and MSZ-006-P2/3C Red Zeta both had a new type of psycommu (the Red Zeta's being called a Psyco Neutralizer) that allowed direct control over the Mobile Suit/Armor using the pilot's thoughts alone. Hard to tell on this one. Am...

Re: Gundam General Audience?

Tracked down the NHK poll I was thinking of, it was from 2018 and one of the categories was favorite animated work for Gundam. They took down demographic information for series, as you can see older series tend to have more older fans and newer series tend to have younger fans. Of course there are a...

Re: Constructed Languages.

For the NIER game on PS3/360 the singer/songwriter Emi Evans put together constructed languages for all the major musical pieces. She used existing languages and 'aged' them so to speak so they have a similar lyrical tilt as you'd expect of say a classical french tune but with different words giving...

Re: Armored Core 6 details just leaked

I loved the PS1 & PS2 Armored Core games and I missed the boat on the PS3/360 games. I enjoyed Demon's and Dark Souls quite a bit but I'm glad to hear Fromsoft is finally making another Armored Core game.

Re: Glory of the Losers?

GotL is a retelling of Wing that incorporates all the EW designs with some justification for how they got there. It also incorporates more of the Pilot backstories, something we saw in the EW OVAs. Quite a bit of new designs since there are always new Gunpla kits to sell. You'll see add-on packs for...

Re: Development of the Biosensor and Psycommu

It sounds as though the Biosensor was a budget version of the Psycommu which removed the remote weapon functionality but kept the improvements to reaction times and of course the added bonus of supernatural Newtype effects. As for normal pilots my reading of the Delta Plus MG manual was not that the...

Re: What defines Mass Production?

Now that we are talking about mass production anyone know how many MS-06F Zakue II got made in total. That was the main mobile suit for Zeon for most of the war and even when the Gouf, Dom and Gelgoog got made the Zaku II still made up most of the Zeon MS force. I know that the One Year War is insp...

Re: Gundam General Audience?

Are you asking in relation to a specific time period like the 80s or in a general sense? In a general sense I would say that Gundam targets multiple markets in order to get the most viewers. Each series they make tends to focus on a different market share with sequels to existing series bringing bac...

Re: What defines Mass Production?

Very true, we don't know the threshold and I don't think Gundam has ever established one or plans on it. For me if they're calling something a mass production type I've always assumed it meant they already have the tooling and production facilities setup to start making these en masse. To use the Ge...

Re: What defines Mass Production?

"Mass Production" gets thrown around a lot in Gundam and it can be very confusing since some mass production models end up with extremely few units being produced. I find it's best to think of a "Mass Production Model" not as a "has this unit been mass produced?" but instead "can this unit be mass p...

Development of the Biosensor and Psycommu

The other day I was looking more into the Psycommu to see specifically what it affected in a Mobile Suit. When I first got into Gundam I knew of the Psycommu as "the system that makes funnels/bits work." A friend of mine said that is also allows the pilot to control the MS with their mind but I thin...

Completely understandable, I still can't remember if it is Supreme or Superior without looking at the sources.
Oh I always thought it was the Superior Gundam, I didn't know about the Supreme (スブリーム.ガンダム) part. Neat.

Re: Neo-Zeon Royal Guard Colors?

The red Regelgu was also a Royal Guard style suit as I recall. I don't think it has any reference to Char since there are other notable red units from the OYW including their space fleet, all the Gwazine class flagships were red for instance. The Red and Gold likely comes from the colors chosen by t...

Re: How niche was mecha in America before Transformers?

Even now I still see it as mainly American series even though I know the original is Japanese. I am just that wedded to the dub version. Same here, I know Speed Racer wasn't a western animation but it's hard not to think of it as one. I ended up watching the movie a few years ago and it was better ...

Re: Getter Robo Armageddon Mech Designs.

We see some of the units the other nations build as well as the Metal Beasts on the enemy's side. In the Getter...

Re: Sakugan Anime

I had some quiet time this morning so I got caught up on a few episodes of Sakugan, made it all the way to ep8. I really enjoy the comedic elements and I'm surprised by how well it's integrating some of the darker parts since I think it was handled very poorly in EP1, but 6 & 8 did a very good job w...

Re: The Official Gundam: Cucuruz Doan's Island Anime Thread Mk I

My mistake then. I was interested in reading the Doan's Island manga someday but if it's not written by Yas I don't think it would be as compelling as the rest of the saga.

I'm guessing it will focus on the manga storyline that Yas wrote with some minor adaptations to translate it into film.
