Re: Do you guys think we will see more sequels of old mecha series?

Still waiting for code geass sequel, Sunrise seems to only care about making more UC and NEW AUs rather than focusing on CE or Geass OR making them into franchises like Mai Hime Franchise Why focus on CE? Destiny did a pretty thorough job wrapping up everything. New AU's have the advantage of well,...

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

They use Antidote against it and it's disabled immediately, until the pilot raises the permet score to 4. Seems like kind of an ass-pull, really, that the anti-GUND Format countermeasure only works against lower levels of performance and can simply be brute forced. You'd think they'd go for a level...

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

Honestly the actual school part of the school arc felt so half-hearted I get the impression the writers didn't care much for it either. We only had 1 episode that felt remotely like a school, and otherwise it was just a silly duel club that transitioned into new business venture. Instead of using th...

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

The confusing part isn't what it's in it for Elnora... it's what's in it for Delling . After all, Delling Rembran IS the man who was so opposed to the use of GUND Format that he masterminded the creation of an ethics enforcement regulatory body with an unlimited license to kill and then had the ent...

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

Honestly my main thoughts on this episode is having farm animals in zero-g with nothing to collect their droppings would be a titanic mess. I do find it funny a friend of mine said this show had better pacing than IBO, when we just sort of go from one quickly resolved disaster to the next, and then ...

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

I think 7, 8, and 9 were kind of the low point of this series. If you kind of selectively ignore some of the nonsense in them, I think this episode by itself feels considerably stronger. It is nice to see that I was right all along in my interpretation of Suletta and Miorine's "relationship&quo...

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

While newtypes/cybernewtypes are mysterious, the basic technology of psycommu is explained well enough by being effectively brainwave receivers. Even the psycoframe with all its powers has some basic expression of how it works. Why any of this lets you sword people with ghosts or make fusion reactio...

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

So, this question blurs the line a bit between mecha and plot I suppose, but how does GUND Format connect with the pilot? I know it uses Permet, but is it injected into the pilot? It looks like it was injected into Elan 4, but in the prologue we seem Eri showing the same lines. Does that mean Eri wa...

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

Her callous disregard for the thoughts and feelings of others is quite shocking, even compared to Guel's indifference to her opinions from early in the series. Given how Guel seems to be much more likeable outside of Ep1, I almost wonder if his brutish behaviour in Ep1 was because he didn't want to...

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

I wish the show actually took a moment to properly explain Permet since its the wonder material of this series and kinda essential to GUND.

I feel like I've only gotten an idea of what it is through the wiki and this forum.

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

Couple things I actually find odd about the stigma: As a medical technology, GUND already seems safe. The prologue suggests its only dangerous as an MS technology due to the amount of data. The mystery of Aerial aside, Prospera's already proof that GUND is safe, as she's survived 21~ years just fine...

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

It's quite rich hearing that this is "the worst writing in the Gundam franchise ever" with no regard to everything that came before it. Yeah I can think of a few series that have gone lower than this. That said, I do agree this episode felt kind of weak. I liked the general idea but how i...

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

If I were to guess, the new Lfrith's are built by Shinsei, so the reason they're blockier and look nothing like the Lfrith is due to the limited resources/infrastructure people keep remarking about in regards to the Aeriel. I find it weird they'd keep the Lfrith name though, beyond being gundams the...

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

The thing I find odd with the two Lfrith models is just how little they actually resemble the original Lfrith. Aerial's pretty clearly just a modified version of the suit, but the new ones look like they've changed out every part save for maybe the shell things.
