Re: zeta gundam overrated?

I think the only setting they keep it going on aside from UC, albeit rarely animate, is SD Gundam Gaiden (although there was long pause after W). It help that the setting has pretty loose continuity with multiverse and such. But of course, SD is always a sideshow and never the main attraction by its...

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

Have I missed something? Is this the first time we’ve had this in a Gundam show? Not counting SD nor non-animated works, the first is probably Devil Gundam. Then, at lesser degree, Turn A and Turn X. 00 Quanta also becomes sentient by fused with ELS. And recently we have Graze Ein and Kimaris Vidar...

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

Beguir-Pente and Michaelis are out. Nothing much that we don't know already though. Michaelis' beam bracer has four functions: Antidote, beam saber, beam cannon, and beam machine gun (and it's heavily protected with shield coating, so I guess it can be used for defense too). Beguir-Pente shield is c...

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

I think that was just him trying for neutral Poker face while he [screams internally]. My best guess is that he has plan B all along, likely to backstab Jeturk and kick them out from Benerit Group (leaving only two great houses, Grasley and Peil, which should at least make his plan to destabilize t...

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

That's DARK. That is... that's... wow. F***. Miorine's going to have some serious PTSD after that. That might legitimately be the darkest, goriest death we've seen up close in Gundam . No pretty pink explosion of a MS's reactor breaching, no collapsing cockpit, no neat impalement that leaves the en...

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

I said I won't be surprised if the show get darker and I'm not. But I thought they would at least address some plot threads instead of left them hanging like this AND add some more for time being. As it turns out... Aerial didn't really override the Antidote back in her last Duel, the thing just onl...

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

It would be extremely funny if the end of Q1 would make that Getter Armageddon meme accurate. So by Q2 Suletta and Mirione will blame each other for exactly same thing, while Chuchu will be hit with survivor guilt... :mrgreen: Joke aside, I heard that the previous episodes are School-arc and now the...

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

So... It look like poor Bob going to sits in sideline until the second half. Kenanji looks far more friendly than in the Prologue. Prospera is working with Delling all along, which mean their action in past episodes might be facade. We still have no idea what's their plan, but with Delling gone from...

BandaiHobby has announced the release of the three military MS in the next year. Dilanza Sol , Zowort Heavy , and Heindree Sturm . We already saw them in news report, suppressing Earthian riot. Remember, right now Aerial is still a toy for Duel game and yet to face an actual military equipments. Alt...

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

Two more trivia from Ebikawa's tweet. Its head is designed to be removable. This not only make it easy to modified/replaced, but make it possible to resuce the pilot from the upper side if its cockpit hatch stuck. Its front skirt can lift up and becomes a scaffold for maintenance and climbing to the...

Demi Trainer gunpla manual has some fun info * The Demi Trainer is made to be as simple as possible. So it's easy for pilot training and can be modified with just basic technical knowledge. * The circular saw we saw Chuchu used in episode 8 and the hand-replacing quad launcher from episode 4 are th...

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

I still think it would starts by dump us right into action without context and SF damaged. After few confusing dialogue, Kira will has flashback to tell us what's going on until the last 5 minutes or so when he got another upgrade Freedom :lol: . Joke aside, Fukuda might actually pull "whole mo...

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

The battle is pretty fun even if Aerial does most of lifting. I actually smile at the end. Look like Shaddiq's feeling toward Miorine is genuine. I thought Guel will join the battle, but that isn't the case. From what it looks like, either he rebel the next episode or will just disappear until the s...

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

The whole Permet thing also seems like a neat idea that's rather underutilized. Honestly Permet seems a bit like how Crystal is depicted in Anne McCaffery's Crystal Singer series; It would be more interesting if it's like Breaking Bad's crystal instead. [...]while here Permet is brought up in the p...

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

Remember that Shoji Gatoh (the aurthor of original light novel) did awesome "damage control" back in 2019 (just when it look like the franchise was on resurrection) with a Twitter post about his sick fantasy of torturing Greta Thunberg. He did apologized, although I heard (read: take this ...

A real breather episode, and I chuckled at their company video. Looking at her smile, I think Belmeria is the most trustworthy among the adults at this point. The next episode is likely feature a fight against Michaelis and Beguir-Pente. Early on, I thought the latter will show up and wreck Aerial a...

Prospera outright said it now. Vanadis Incident, the Prologue, happened 21 years ago. So I guess it either involve unfounded assumptions, or none of the staff can do basic math :roll: , although I would rather wait and see how they will explain it. She also use prural "daughters" (musume-...
