Re: Genesis Climber Mospeada Genesis Breaker

Another issue is the pacing of the story. Aside from the beginning and end, there are not a lot of huge engagements. mostly it's the main characters on a melancholy journey across earth, as they witness the long lasting effects of the invasion. its rather like if you took the earth arc of Gundam and...

Re: Amuro Deserts

I think what would've happened with Kai would have ultimately ended up being similar to what happened to Amuro. Even if they had the Gundam , they were still short a Newtype pilot, which would leave them in a bind. Amuro would probably have seen (or more likely sensed)the crisis that occurred come t...

The Future of Newtypes? (Spoilers)

I know that timeline wise (and for rather vague reasons) Newtypes become rather scarce in the late UC. However Queen Maria and her Pyschickers still seem very powerful, to say nothing of Uso. So what does everyone think? Do Newtypes fade away(their population was never what you'd call huge even afte...

Armored Shrike Profiles?

Does anybody know if there are any line art or profiles of the Armored Shrike from Blue Gender? I know years ago the was a (seemingly official) site, but i think that was long since deleted.

Sentai license rescues?

I read an old release from 2013 that Sentai had or was looking to license rescue several older titles(S-Cry-ed, Betterman, The Big O,Argento Soma, Zegapain etc). Did anything ever come of it? Obviously (and understandably because of Covid) nobody would be moving forward on this now, but were any of ...

The Shoal Zone? (SPOILERS)

Depending on the source Sides 4 or 5 are called the Shoal Zone. Is it supposed to be both sides? Side 4 is more commonly referred to as the Shoal Zone (unless you go by the continuity of the just the first series in which every side but 3,6, and 7 were). I know the sides were reassigned after the On...

Re: Just me, or does Gundam 00 still feel the most modern?

I think it could be because we see more of the non military world in this series than in most other series. there are character's (ie, Saiji and Louise) whose entire arc is set in the civilian world(at least at first). In most(but not all) other stories the character is thrust in to the military/war...

Re: How many more 'new' U.C. stories can be told in anime form?

Agreed If Crossbone was a full length series that could easily help explain a lot of the loose ends in that particular series. even more so it could expand on the back stories of the Jupiter Empire and Zanscare(their connection was kinda vague in Victory).Plus there apparently was an idea for a Vict...

Why didn't Zeon attempt to build their own Gundam? In the One Year War the Zeonic forces lacked the knowledge of the prototype, so they tried to steal it. However later on in subsequent wars they had contact with Anaheim ,who openly played both sides, So why didn't the remnants try to obtain a Gunda...

Alot of the Gundam series in the nineties seem to use European styled buildings in their colonies as well as European styled military uniforms(ie, F91(Where it is actually a plot point),V, Gundam Wing, Gundam X and to a lesser degree ZZ,CCA and 0080).

Re: Which era of Gundam is your favorite?

I pretty much like all of the gundam timelines (Save for G and IBO) but my faviortie would probably be the UC era. I agree with the poster saying that the original was groundbreaking, but its animation aged poorly. However the animation budget and design definitly improved in the late eighties seque...

As for the Worker MS maybe they were responsible for the heavy lifting in the colony construction. a suit t...

Cecilia being the donor makes a lot of sense, as she resembles both Glemmy and Elpeo.
