Re: Jerid's Byarlant?

That is what I also found odd; it really seemed as though the Byarlant was going to be Jerids final mech unit, The whole Baund Doc thing came out of nowhere(plus it's Rosamia's). Especially because Jerid didn't seem like that powerful of a Newtype(compared to say Sirocco).

Re: Space Pirates?

Well to be fair most Pirates in fiction are the romanticized in name only type (except Pirates of The Caribbean, sort of). Pirates in real life both in the past and present are/were considerably more ruthless. Really both Crossbone and Bisidan are resistance movements(wait where does Bisidan get it'...

Space Pirates?

So between Crossbone and Gundam Age, What are everyone thoughts? Which did it better? It does seem like the Bisidan in Gundam Age are added because there will likely never be a Crossbone Anime, and Age basically put everything people like about Gundam in a blender. I admit that Gundam Age has its pr...

Jerid's Byarlant?

What exactly happened to Jerid's Byarlant? It''s never destroyed, Jerid just stops using it after awhile, and for some reason uses Rosamia's Baund Doc at the end. Was it render obsolete? Or did Jerid develop further Newtype powers necessitating using a specialty MS.

Re: The Neutron Jammer?

Agreed the Neutron Jammers would only shut down nuclear powered energy, not other sources(Clearly ORB must use an alternative source). Now that I think of it we don't really see that much of Earth in SEED that isn't Alliance/Zaft military bases(ie we only see the Zaft base in Australia, Josh-A in Al...

Re: Was Fuala always a Newtype?(SPOILERS)

It does seem that at times that characters in Gundam undergo a change radically different from where their character started off. Like Glemmy in ZZ starting as a rookie who had numerous failures and was randomly promoted to be in charge of not only a whole fleet, but also an experimental Newtype Cor...

The Neutron Jammer?

So just how much damage did the Neutron Jammers do to the Earth? It's stated they caused an energy crisis and mass starvation, and stayed on earth till after the war. However when we see the earth in SEED(and they cover numerous contents) there dosent seem to be a lack of energy in any of the cities...

Stargazer Release?

So why wasn't Gundam Seed Stargazer Exported? Both SEED and SEED Destiny have been released and Re-Released in North America, so why hasn't Stargazer? Is there a legal issue? or is it too short in run time to justify a release?

How many people in the Earth Federation live on Earth?

There is understandably a great deal of friction between the Earthnoids and Spacenoids, so how many of the EF personnel actually live on Earth? To police the entire Earth Sphere would take a great deal of people, and they can’t all live on earth, due to the limited population allowed on earth. So do...

What was the first Real Robot series to make it North America?

So what exactly was the first "Real Robot" series to make it to airwaves in North America? I know shows began being imported in the 80s (including the infamous Robotech debacle), so how many were released and when? Or was Robotec the closest thing to imported mech anime? I wondered because the Battl...

Re: Kira attending military prep school?

I really don't know Japanese well enough to translate if the subtitles were off, but it does seem to contradict the earlier story material. In the first episode we see Kira and Athrun talking beneath Sakura petals as kids; Kira is wearing a futuristic Gakuran ,while Athrun is in a quasi military uni...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

Mikimoto was the character designer, while Kazumi Fujita (Zeta Gundam, ZZ) did the mechanical designs.

As for the Zeorymer manga it's fairly intense in content (it was originally a Hentai) that actually had some of its more graphic content toned down in the OVA.

Toei-AIC partnership.

So now it seems that Toei and AIC are now joint owners of some old-school Mecha Anime( Bubblegum Crisis,Zeorymer, Dangaioh,Megazone, etc), also apparently they are going to make more content for these existing franchises. So what does everyone think? Do you think they'll remake/add new content or ju...

Well hopefully it turns out well. Jordan Vogt-Roberts is apparently a Gundam fan (and his Twitter seems to support this). Plus Legendary did great work on the Pacific Rim films; so at the very least they will look much better than G-Saviour, hopefully the story works out as well...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

Zeorymer is a great series, it sorta seems like a Proto-EVA (yes I realize the concept existed long before that). They thankfully toned down (most) of the more extreme scenes from the manga. So we’re left with a very dark take on the Super Robot themes(Ie Teenage Heroes, Quirky band of villains with...

I hope we get all of the Macross Anime on Blu-ray/DVD, the manga and video games we might not get.
