Spriggan?

So what does everyone think of the Netflix adaptation? I think its very entertaining and has great animation, and it's neat to see more stories adapted? What does everyone else think? Also how closely does the anime and movie from 98 follow the Manga?

The Pegasus Class.

So is there a standard for the Pegasus Class? Like is there one unified design , that other ships can be modified from? Because we see some "Normal" Pegasus class ships with fewer features (like the Gray Phantom ) and some that are more heavily modified (like the Blanc Rival, the Spartan a...

Re: Main Gun on the Pegasus Class Ships

As for the other Pegasus class ships; the Albion has two beam guns, and according to the wiki, so do "most" Pegasus class ships, like the Thoroughbred and the Blanc Rival, it's been awhile since I've read Space to The End of a Flash, and the Blanc Rival is probably the most obscure Pegasus...

Re: Mons Series?

Thanks, I remember years ago reading Narutaru (an extremely disturbing Mons deconstruction, I don't intend to read again). And I'd noticed it started in 1998, just after Pokemon began. So it seemed odd to do a deconstruction on a genre that had seemingly just began(for context darker genre shows oft...

Halo Legends

So what does everyone think of this movie? I really like it, But I'm not as familiar with Halo outside of this movie and the tv series, so how does it hold up? Does it it diverge from canon and go off in its own direction like Star Wars Visions does, or does it stay closer to the games continuity?

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

Agreed, G-Reco had a detail issue when it came to character design (I've heard it theorized that this was because Sunrise was working on a ton of different series at once) But it had great mechanical and battle animation (even more so in the G-Reco movies, which fix a lot of the issues the series ha...

Mospeada and 08th MS Team (SPOILERS)

Maybe this is overthinking it, but did anyone else think there are more than a few similarities between Gundam the 08th MS Team and Gensis Climber Mospeada? For example we have the setting as being a long, gritty ground war in the Jungle (SE Asia in 08thMS and South America in Mospeda), where the ch...

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

So Inaba goes by two different names, that explains why the first was so hard to find. Also does anyone else find that some of these mechs have shout outs to previous designs? The Pharact looks kind of like a slimmed down version of the Kabakali from G-Reco. The Dilanza looks like a cross between th...

Mons Series?

So exactly where did the whole Mons (Ie Pokemon, Digimon, Kids and mini monster thing) start? Was Pokemon the first franchise to use this? Or did the idea come earlier?

Re: Fate/ Franchise order

Something like that. Saber is clearly one of the most popular characters in the franchise, so it makes sense they'd use her as often as possible. The alternative timeline thing makes that relatively easy. Then other franchise's have the whole expy thing, with similar characters(in both design and pe...

Re: Fate/ Franchise order

Yes there are several spinoffs that change the genre, yet keep the characters. It seems like when a franchise gets popular enough, they'll make any kind of spin off. The same thing actually happened with Evangelion.

Domed City Travel?

So its established in Gundam that travel to Earth from the Colonies and Lunar cities is restricted, but what about the (admittedly few) domed cities on Earth? In Victory Gundam we see the one off Undersea City of Underhook on an island in the Gulf of Mexico, While in Gundam the Origin there's the Do...

So has anyone watched this? I've heard it's a darker Sentai type of series, so how dark does the storyline get? How is the action and animation?

Re: Macross Unification War?

Thank you, it's always neat to see more backstory to the Anime, especially because a lot of Macross side material has never been translated. The whole set up can be seen in Macross Zero itself, The eastern European powers can be seen in Nora and DD seemingly being of Eastern European descent( and th...

Macross Unification War?

So its established that the Unification Wars preceded the events of the first Macross series (as has been touched on partially in the original series and more in depth in Zero). So is it ever established how the Earth was divided during the war? Were there multiple Power Blocs (like in Gundam 00) , ...

Listeners

So what does everyone think about this Anime? Is it worth watching? Is it a mecha anime? From what little I can find it seems kinda like Takt Op Destiny with some Eureka Seven design vibes.

Re: Fate/ Franchise order

Thanks. It helps a lot to see that they are independent timelines , with largely the same casts. This is probably the best way to do a Visual Novel adaptation, as they have multiple routes and endings. Most of the series (Save for the movie trilogy's) are legally streaming on a number of sites, so t...

Fate/ Franchise order

So the Fate/ series (Fate/stay night) is a huge franchise with a lot of spin offs and alternative universes (like Eva or Euerka Seven). It's kind of confusing, so what is the watch order?
