Re: Xabungle submission

No problem, I was rather lucky I had just finished Xabungle and still had a lot of info fresh in my mind.

Re: Bang Brave Bang Bravern

I've been on travel so finally got some down time to catch up on Bravern. I was half expecting Bravern to have a Fighbird/Katori origin story, where he behaves that way after watching some TV, but it looks like the common prediction regarding Smith and Braverns connection came true. I was honestly e...

Re: Bang Brave Bang Bravern

This was a very good episode, probably the best so far after EP1. I actually like that the show producers looked up how much time it takes to steam from Hawaii to Japan, and they're using the travel time productively. Speaking of steam, one of the early arguments against the EM catapult was that ste...

Re: Bang Brave Bang Bravern

Yeah I've seen the time travel twist theory a few times, I've also seen one that Bravern had the soul of Smith inside him from a different timeline where things didn't end well. Or the theory that Smith was a standard shonen Braves protagonist but gave a piece of himself to Bravern in a hypothetical...

Re: Capabilities of the Turn A Gundam

Re: Bang Brave Bang Bravern

So it really seems to be going more for ZZ in mixing comedy and drama This show does not remind me of ZZ Gundam in the slightest. Maybe Nadesico, Dangaioh or perhaps even Danguard but not ZZ Gundam. I could definitely do without "Lulu" and her ear-piercing toddler screeching. You can tell...

Re: Capabilities of the Turn A Gundam

The whole premise of Turn A Gundam is that there are no alternate timelines. That's why the title is ∀ Gundam . ∀ is a mathematical/logical symbol for universal quanfication, and can be read to mean "for all" or "for all possible values of". It's a meaningful title, because ∀ Gu...

Re: Freeden II - Beam Deflection Field

1. Freeden II never appears in SRW, but it does appears in dome SD G Generation. 2. Freeden II never anticipated in any space battle by itself. It only deploys MS then stay in the back. I've always liked the Freeden II's design so I was disappointed when it didn't show up in Alpha Gaiden. Too bad i...

Re: Capabilities of the Turn A Gundam

TBH, I'm really not sure how you arrived at that interpretation... it's definitely not what's said in the series or official materials. Are you referring to the part about inheriting tech they don't understand / can't maintain or the part about viewing alternate timelines? If you're referring to te...

Re: Freeden II - Beam Deflection Field

I did a quick a check on the cre wiki which is usually reliable(the sister site SRW cre wiki is more thorough though) https://gundam.wiki.cre.jp/wiki/%E3%83%95%E3%83%AA%E3%83%BC%E3%83%87%E3%83%B3II They do have that mentioned. Ah interesting, it mentions in the game that it reduces the damage from ...

Freeden II - Beam Deflection Field

I was on the Gundam wiki looking for a screenshot of the Freeden II and I noticed they listed it as having a "Beam Deflection Field Generator". I don't recall that from the show, and I didn't see that info mirrored on the MAHQ profile. When I checked the wiki talk page they mentioned the (...

Re: The Official Gundam SEED FREEDOM Mecha Thread Mk I

N-Jammer Canceller equipped suits have been a political issue in SEED for a while (and why Rising Freedom doesn't use one), so it's considerably more likely they modified the existing rather than building a brand new second one with another N-Jammer Canceller. Also it looks like Mega Particle Cannon...

That'd require the Moonrace to be pretty firmly on the other side of Clarke's Third Law... if they have the technology to access other realities why the heck would they even need to bother invading Earth? That's the kind of thing you normally only obtain in SF after you've gotten bored exploring th...

Re: Spreading Minovsky Particles

There is a prototype zaku 1 that spread minovsky particles: https://www.mahq.net/ms-05hs/ So we know that a mobile suit, with a backpack bigger than those in Seed, can spread minovsky particles at least semi-decently. There is also M-warheads that the Granada Treaty banned, so I guess you can bottl...

Re: Capabilities of the Turn A Gundam

Though it doesn't actually take that much to change the course of something small like a bullet if the field is intense enough. Mythbusters did a test as part of one of their James Bond specials that concerned using electromagnets (and later, permanent magnets) to deflect a bullet. Ah! I remember t...

Re: Spreading Minovsky Particles

Minovsky reactors are powerful, but presumably the safety risks and logistical issues involved with running them (e.g. having to ship fuel in from the Jupiter sphere) seems to have prevented them from eclipsing the cheap-and-cheerful high-efficiency solar power that seems to have been in place in t...

Re: Spreading Minovsky Particles

The manga Developers: Mobile Suit Gundam Before the One Year War at the very least suggests something as simple as reactor testing can get you the same extreme issues on a more localized basis. They only depict this issue occurring in the test center, though, not in actual field use. I'm assuming M...
