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

There is also a red unit called the Darilbalde, which would follow in the whole Red Zaku 2 Clone thing as well, though it's not yet clear who will actually pilot it. That being said if Suletta's mother is actually the masked woman , could that be a reference to Brain Powerd : where Jonathon's mother...

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

The Lfrith also looks at bit like the Gusion Rebake Full City from IBO(mostly color scheme wise, but also a bit with the torso design). Plus their being several prototype models seems a bit like the three Gundam MK II porotypes, with the two units units being used for spare parts. Granted it's not c...

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

It almost seems as though the weapons are able to control their beam power (something that was actually alluded to all the way back in the UC series Victory Gundam). Indeed the suits are heavily damaged, yet the pilots survive (of course there could just as easily be a rule about not actually killin...

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

Agreed it's a great episode. In addition to Revolutionary Girl Utena; I thought there were similarities to My-Otome (which is also from Sunrise) in the interaction between Suletta and Miorine being a bit more like the one between Arika and Mashiro (the characters are also a little similar, being a T...

Re: The Official Gundam: Cucuruz Doan's Island Anime Thread Mk I

So who else has seen the movie? I thought it was great, everything I hoped it would be , it mixed drama and action scenes well, and had great animation. I'll admit that going into the movie I didn't expect that everyone in the Brown Southern Cross Team was going to die. However it does fit into the ...

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

Thanks, the novel did help flesh a lot out. (SPOILERS). It's neat to see more information of the worldbuilding and characters. It seems like Mercury has asteroid bases like the one seen in the prologue with limited living spaces (think more Core 2 than Moussa habitation block), and trips to the surf...

Pacific Rim Novels and Comics?

So what does everyone think of these? Are they worth reading? I know Ascension is a Prequel to Uprising, but does the novelization of the first movie add to the story?

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

Totally, One Year War seriously? It's odd though because there doesn't seem to have been that many translation errors prior to this. Who knows maybe they started outsourcing more recently.

Re: Erdspinne and Order Buckler?

Thanks, it neat to see that like Gundam , Votoms has it's own mech history, in regards to one unit following another. It seems that the Gilgamesh Confederation was really the dominant power in the Votoms verse (SPOILER , of course this is not counting playing the long game with Chirico as the Overma...

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

Agree with GM in that it will be interesting to see how /why Suletta's Gundam is allowed in school (that being said it seems as though many of the Elite students supply their own Mobile Suits, granted the suits themselves serve as product placements to the groups the student's represent). It will al...

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

Agreed with the tone shift in Code Geass being rather jarring (I remember one episode began with a life or death battle in a city, and ended with wacky school hijinks, it kind of killed the momentum the first half of the episode built up so well) the same thing happened in My-HiME and My- Otome, in ...

Re: Gerbera and Gerbera Tetra?

Yes the Galbaldy Beta is initially an Earth Federation unit (Remember Lt. Lila was in the Earth Federation), but like a lot of other resources, it was probably swallowed up by the Titans. It is true that in house competitions are not unheard in the Gundam series (given what big Gundam fans the Macro...

Re: Erdspinne and Order Buckler?

The Scopedog is definitely the mascot of Votoms : It's the most commonly fielded mecha, appears in some variant across all of the animated works :even the Lighthearted alternate universe Votoms Finder has a mech that looks like if Ippei Gyoubu designed a Scopedog (Yes, I know that Gyoubu didn't work...

Re: Erdspinne and Order Buckler?

Thanks, that's very informative.

Where exactly do you find the information. I've tried googling the mechs, but I had trouble finding detailed information. Is this on a webpage, or do you have access to the printed mech manuals?

Erdspinne and Order Buckler?

So is there any information out there about these mechs? They have a bit more of a unique design compared to the Scopedogs. So what are their specs? Are the Erdspinne’s more powerful than the Baralant Fatty Units, and the Scopedogs? How powerful is the Order Buckler?

Re: GW: Wing Gundam BR 3 Shot Maximum

According to the some information from the Model Kit translations, the gun is only capable of firing three rounds, however it can easily reload with more cartridges. It is also possible to change the beam output range of the gun, but it doesn't say if it can use different ammunition.

Re: Gerbera and Gerbera Tetra?

There is far more information on the Early UC Wars than the later ones. For instance Zanscare is shown to have captured Side 2's SNRI facilities, But I'm not sure it is ever stated who built the Crossbone Vanguards mech's. Also we know that Zanscare has Side 2 as a home base, but we never find out w...

Anaheim's double dealing is well known (I seem to remember October sheepishly apologizing to Amuro and Chan in CCA about Anaheim selling to both sides, of course that's actually a bigger plot point there). I also remember reading that Anaheim was structured so that each department acted independent ...

Sorry for double posting I accidentally hit reply with quote.
