Re: do the U.C. Gundam OAV's create continuity problems with the First Series?

let's wait and see then. after the Hathaway trilogy is done. let's see what they do. if we get to 2024/2025 and more AU Gundam shows have arrived and there's no sign of an Origin continuation insight then you'll BOTH be right. but if I'm right and they do what i think they're doing (rebooting the f...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

Jinki Resurrection (eroge) and Jinrouki Winvurga (manga). Note that the manga is also NSFW, with a loli get raped and killed in the first chapter. So even with great character and mech design, I just can't bother. Back to subject of forgotten show. Now, it isn't a show, but there's a PS1 game that's...

Re: What's Next for Gundam Anime?

If they want to follow the current trend, then make it about VTuber (hmmm...they actually touch it a bit in GBDR). We may even get parody of Kira-like character who wipe the whole army the instant they appear, but struggling to keep their channel floating because that's boring. The MC, on the other ...

Re: What's Next for Gundam Anime?

*Chuckle* So you suggest that "They can't bring in a new thing anymore, lets go back to EVEN OLDER STUFF AND MILK IT DRY AGAIN." Make no mistake, I'm fine if they revisit UC. But I disagree that they can't bring new thing to the table as AU (there're almost infinite combination of theme, motif, and ...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

For something that might worth checking, I say GR -Giant Robo. It's pretty good show IMO, but overshadowed by the OVA.

Re: Which era of Gundam is your favorite?

...are you serious? Your solution of "they're have been too many of them. the novelty has worn off." is to turn to remake? I say no, because there're too many of them, the novelty has worn off.

I think they've really pushed the envelope with AU's. i mean how many more can they do? It's getting played out at this point.
Well, Toei keep releasing Super Sentai every year since 1975 with 45th series coming this year. And aside from some crossover, most are set in their own continuity.

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

Isn't that the whole thing about Asakim Dowen was Masaki? AFAIK, turned out that we're somewhat mislead by Asakim. It's unclear if Shurouga was corrupted Cybuster or not, but Asakim can't be Masaki since Shurouga create him to be replacement of its original pilot. It's unknown if he's based on the ...

Also, there were some machines debuted in that games that would reappear, right? (Like the machine piloted by the protagonist of Masou Kishin 4: Coffin of the End, if I remember correctly.) I speculate that the whole subplot of Cybuster slowly being corrupted from usage of imitation ritual converte...

Re: do the U.C. Gundam OAV's create continuity problems with the First Series?

How? Thoae two things arwn't relevant. RX-79 are especially noted to be made from parts left over from developing Gundam (not quite good enough, but still functional) Alex was made afterward for Amuro. Thunderbolt's author doesn't really mind continuity, but I can't see what would prevent Federation...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

i'd say Rinne no Lagrange fits under the forgotten titles. the only possible reason some otakus remember it is because of the Yuri subtext. the show was entertaining enough for me to watch it almost 3 times. in both Japanese and English language. i am eagerly awaiting for it to debut in a Major SRW...

Re: ZAFT'S Land and Sea craft.

TBH, UC Gundam 's explanation that the Principality of Zeon couldn't design decent aircraft because they lived inside space colonies is a tad silly. OK, they live in an O'Neill cylinder but that doesn't mean they lost knowledge of aerodynamics. Not being able to test an aircraft is one thing, but m...

Haven't watched Ultraman Z yet, but are the mecha stuffs in it like Ultraseven?
Their role are similar to fighters from older show, but it turned out that mech's development is actually the center of its plot. If you don't mind spoiler, they just uploaded compilation that summary it.

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

The only original property on the list is SSSS.DYNAZENON , a super robot anime. And not exactly new either. Unless they change anything, Dynazenon is most likely to be combination of Dyna Dragon and God Zenon from original Gridman. Dyna Dragon was completely absent fron SSSS.Gridman, while God Zeno...

Re: Tokusatsu

Dug up because, well, the next Super Sentai appear to be focus on mech. The design of the four members already give me nostalgia (they appear to be derived from Gaoking, Daizyujin, Majiking, and Daibouken) while the leader is mixture of Kamen Rider and Big One from the second Sentai, JAKQ.
