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

The story is visually very well done (especially compared to some previous Gundam series which suffer from animation issues in the first run which were later fixed), however the story is all over the place. Particularly with Suletta who has no real agency in her own series, hopefully this issues are...

Re: Full Metal Panic! Director's Cut Edition Part 1: "Boy Meets Girl"

It is odd when a franchise just sort of disappears in the middle of releasing. It is kind of like Fafner in the first series and movie were released, but the second season was only streamed on Crunchyroll (and that doesn't seem to be available anymore) , and none of the other projects were released ...

Re: Ecole du Ciel

It would be up to Mikimoto's publishers or agency to get him to stick to the schedule. I didn't realize that so many of his works were affected by scheduling issues.

Ecole du Ciel

So I know this series is older (and unfinished), but it still ran for several volumes, and developed quite a bit of story along the way. Plus when Witch from Mercury started, people compared the two(though I don't think they're that similar). So what's everyone's thoughts on the story? I thought the...

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

Honestly that whole Space OSHA thing is very common in Sci Fi, how many times have we seen ships or mechs without seatbelts? In ZZ the Cassiopeia stuffs all the poor people in a glorified cargo hold, then when the AEUG leaves Norway they tie children (who have already stuck around on a warship in ac...

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

The show does seem to have an issue with solving one issue, yet bringing up another one. Nobody can seem to decide whether Gundam's are illegal or not, as their stridency on the issue seems to waver depending on the episode. Even Delling seems to be inconsistent on his goals, as he goes from blowin...

Re: Full Metal Panic! Director's Cut Edition Part 1: "Boy Meets Girl"

There seems to be two separate releases of the Blu Ray on Right Stuf, but I hadn't even heard of these movies until now. It seems like Invisible Victory will be the last season, though that's probably not how the creators intended it. There's really not a lot of information out there (I asked about ...

Re: Full Metal Panic! Director's Cut Edition Part 1: "Boy Meets Girl"

They seem to be compilation movies with updated footage (like the Gundam Compilation Movies). After 5 years there doesn't seem to be much info, and its not clear if they were exported. They may have been made as a way of catching up on the series for invisible victory's release, which currently is t...

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

Spoiler
[It's also odd in that building a similar in name and looks Gundam unit, would do a rather poor job of convincing the Benerit Group, that there is nothing happening on Mercury. Of course depending on when these units are introduced, Prospera may have made a move into outright warfare./spoiler]

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

Me either. Though it is interesting to see variations on the design. The Thorn looks like a desert combat unit (though that's mainly due to the color scheme), Maybe the Ur is a full on mass produced unit.

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

I brought this up on the Anime thread, but it probably belongs here So as Kuruni mentioned , some new model Gunpla have been announced (https://www.1999.co.jp/10924106 and https://www.1999.co.jp/10924105). So does anyone else think that the desert units Elan and his team were dueling with in Ep 5 ar...

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

So it would seem Suletta goes beyond permit level, and actually bonded with the AI. That would explain why the other less empathetic pilots couldn't reach that level. That being said how much higher is Suletta's level than the other pilots? Back to the Mercury Situation How big of a scope do you th...

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

Spoiler
Does anyone think Suletta may have been born differently? Like the Coordinators from the CE, where DNA was combined of her parents, and she was genetically engineered from the beginning?/spoiler]

Also what did people was similar between Zone of the Enders and G-Witch?

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

Definitely, this also falls into the issues of resources , or lack therefore. Ceres and the Peli group had a large amount of resources at their disposal for their schemes. Elnora was a nobody, only notable for being one of the two survivors of the attack, she had no resources to do anything at firs...

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

Actual cloning doesn't seem to be possible in this verse, they seem to largely just modify an existing person(like said before think Full Frontal, Zoltan, or Meer, over Elpeo Ple). If this is the case Suletta is most likely Eri, again there aren't really the resources to do anything else at Mercury...

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

The whole Lfrith/Ariel thing is a major blind spot for the Benerit Group, seriously it makes the whole Alex Dino thing look well thought out in comparison. Even taking into account that all the Lfrith units were presumably destroyed at the end of the conflict, it is beyond suspicious that a new uni...

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

So Zoltan and Meer really would be the people Elan is most like, Zoltan more so because of the Permit modifacation, which I'm guess is what caused Elan's drastically reduced lifespan. If this is the case then it really doesn't seem like Suletta underwent the same process, as she is shown to be much...

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

Most Gundam shows are given a dub, and as popular as it is, I don't doubt it will end up with a Dub sooner or later. Probably it will be NYAV, as they seem to do the more recent dubs and redubs. I wonder if they will cast newcomers for the dub? NYAV does at times use vocal talent across the Gundam F...

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

Thanks , it will be neat to see how it's translated. For some reason I think they might use Coulibaly as the name. Regardless hopefully there will be some lineart coming out because those units look so neat.
