Jaburo History?

So is it ever explained when exactly Jaburo was built? Was it built at the start of the Universal Century? Or was it built in the UC 70's? The only informative I can easily find is in the Origin(which falls into the whole manga/anime canon thing) which seems to indicate that Jaburo is fairly new, or...

Re: The Dijeh in Space?

So were there any MSV or Spinoff Manga in the 80's (not exactly cannon, but still) that showed Amuro's activities during the First Neo-Zeon War? Or was this first explored in Gundam Evolve?

The Dijeh in Space?

So how well could the Dijeh operate in outer space? We mostly see it on the ground in official material(Amuro fights with it in Africa, Later he uses a modified version in space colony in a spin off manga, the Lucio Company Dijeh are shown fighting in the Midwest in Narrative). However Amuro has his...

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

That being said the Gund technology seems way less gruesome than the AV system from IBO. At this point is there anymore information on what exactly the Gund System is or what it requires? I agree with Sonic and it's AV vibes (there's every a protest sign that says Gund System killed the protester's ...

Re: How powerful was the Hyaku Shiki?

I seem to remember an episode where Mouar severely damaged the Hyaku Shiki. It seems it lost an arm and had it's back unit damaged. So maybe it really is the result of powerful foes fighting each other. Mouar was easily one of the better pilots in the Titans, and compared to people like Yazan, one o...

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

That could be the case. Especially when you consider (SPOILERS) Sulettea is the orphaned daughter of rebels. I doubt a school run by the Power Blocs her parents opposed would be to keen on having her there if they knew her true identity(for a similar example, just look what Slaine is put through in ...

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

Right , sorry I forgot about the Earth recovering, which makes sense after 300 years. Indeed what we see of the Earth in the series looks very nice and fully recovered. Its been a while since I've seen the show, so I can't remember if there was a limited population allowed on Earth like in previous ...

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

Especially because the plot is more serious than it seemed at first with the school setting. I wonder if it will be something like Mai-Hime with the school and battles giving way to a full scale conflict.

Re: How powerful was the Hyaku Shiki?

For some reason the Hyaku Shiki always seemed as though it suited Char/Quattro the best, as the custom units often seem specialized to the just the pilot, particularly if they are a Newtype. That being said the Hyaku Shiki was something of a testbed for experimental weaponry, which may explain why i...

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

Thanks for the upload. It's interesting to see how contemporary technology is utilized in Sci Fi. It seems a bit like earlier Sunrise show AMAIM Warrior at the Borderline, wherein there is largely drone combat, yet the main characters in all factions pilot their own machines, sometimes with the help...

Re: How powerful was the Hyaku Shiki?

Agreed, I always thought the Hyaku Shiki Golden coating looked kind of cheesy, granted that's because the series is from 1985 and had a tv budget, so they had to make due with coating it in an odd bright yellow. The SUMO from Turn A, The Unicorn Phenex from Narrative and Akatsuki from Seed Destiny a...

Re: Mobile Suit Grand Prix?

Thanks, it's neat to see Woolf's unit (for some reason I'd thought his Shadoll custom was his racing unit), it's neat that MSV covered that portion of the story, as it seemed kinda interesting. Really it reminds me of the Hobby Hizack from CCA, where people would customize MS for civilian use.

Mobile Suit Grand Prix?

So what exactly is the Mobile Suit Grand Prix? It's mentioned in Gundam AGE that Woolf Enneacle was a Mobile Suit "Racer" in the "Grand Prix". So what exactly was this? Is it a non lethal duel between MS like the kind that Asemu was involved in? Or is it some kind of obstacle cou...

By comparsion to the other AEUG units, How powerful was the Hyaku Shiki? Would it be considered more powerful than the Gundam MK II? Would it be on the same level as the Zeta? Also why was the Hyaku Shiki given a second unit? Was there always a replacement unit built by Anaheim that was given to the...

Re: New Gundam Seed project; sequel movie, manga and more

Looks like it. Tbh I always wished the Skygrasper had more screen time; it's such a cool design, especially because unlike Macross, Gundam doesn't have that many interesting plane designs( I mean independent Planes, not Mobile Armors or Core Fighters). It seems as though the Skygrasper was mass prod...

Re: New Gundam Seed project; sequel movie, manga and more

So despite the long delays, the story is moving again. The last several chapters have been a fight with the Aile Calamity Gundam, and the Eclipse Gundam. The battles are really well drawn and still manage to convey the action portion of the battle, though the long time between chapters releasing can...

Gundam ZZ Manga

So is there any information on the original 80s Gundam ZZ Manga? I've heard that it's darker in tone(Ie, Glemmy is more ruthless to start with), and changes some of the character relationships (Judau and Elle are more platonic friends).

Re: Macross 7 and Frontier Timeline.

Sounds kind of like how the MCU put some (but nowhere near all) backstory and plot points to their movies in special edition comics releases. This can honestly make it hard to find all the information: as it would be either too expensive to buy every single piece of merchandise , or it falls into th...

Re: Macross 7 and Frontier Timeline.

Admittedly I'm not that interested in Delta either (I still debate whether or not to buy the eventual Blu-Ray release), so it's mostly limited to shows I'm really in to. I remember the old Gundam Guide (which I think Mark Simmons worked on) has an some of the official timelines in the Margins. And m...
