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 ...

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

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...

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

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-...

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

Although Gundaminfo doesn't upload the special recap episode, Thai's localizer does. It's pure recap without new footage or information. On the other hand, most of it is narrated by Guel's VA in humorous way (including "Who Wrote This Crap?" at the end). So iyou won'r miss anything but few...

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

So, basically, you just wish the show were grimdark. :roll: :P Less of wish and more about "would not surprised if they pull it". Ironically, I got called naive when I mentioned in YT comment that I hope the show won't become too dark (as in become completely void of funny moment) That as...

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

You might want to read it again, then. The Aerial is quite direct in saying that Suletta is the daughter of its developer. Suletta's mother is my developer, as well as a Gundam test pilot. I did. I even checked the original Japanese text and aware that "Mom" is indeed explicitly stated to...

Imgur seems to really hate me and "temporarily over capacity" over a month now... So here're some info without image. ZOE Dolores, i Dolores 's arm blade is called Smash Paddle while the particle cannon is called Burst Lance. Here's kit's manual scan from Dalong AMAIM Jogan 's new weapons ...

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

But it's also possible that's something Mom told it, possibly while working on its programing. We also see it near the end of the short story that she does speak with it alone. It's not unreasonable to assume that they do this from time to time. It doesn't remember being told about the Earth Sphere...

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

I also don't see where Aerial connect itself to Lfrith. I too think it's modified Lfrith, but it doesn't say so in the story. Unlike Suletta, the Aerial remembers being in the Earth Sphere, why it had to leave, and what the probable consequences of returning are if it's discovered to be a Gundam. T...

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

So the web story effectively says that The Aerial's just a remodeled Lfrith, and that Suletta is Eri, effectively debunking the whole crazy ass theory about Aerial being a brain in a jar situation with Eri and Suletta being a separate character Huh, I don't think so. While Aerial notes that Mom cam...

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

It does seem like They were deliberately fooling audiences on the timeline prior to the reveal, to keep people guessing. I do wonder if Elan is supposed to be a Rei Ayanami Expy? They do share a lot of personality, character and appearance traits, however I agree with GM in that Rei is better devel...

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

No AFAIK. 109 is likely fan's speculation with Suletta being 17 and Prologue occurs on Ericht's 4th birthday. And so "21 years old" revenge statement from thus episode cause everything to clash down. Of course, there are people who note that they don't made it specific what exactly is the ...

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

Since the Prologue occurred 21 years ago, Suletta can't be Eri. The implication of Lady Propera's statement that "Aerial surely win" and how she "trust her darling daughter" is pretty dark, as dark as Graze Ein. In fact, Thai sub actually has Prospera outright call Aerial her da...

And did I miss something here... At the end of his duel with Guel Jeturk in episode five, Elan Ceres tells his opponent over the radio that his Pharact is a Gundam. When Suletta's Aerial was even suspected of being a Gundam her duel win was invalidated, she was swiftly arrested, and they were ready...

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

To avoid spoiler, lets say Elan has has escape the "unlucky nice guy" role in yuri genre. Now he's more of a "dark counterpart" to Suletta. It's interesting that they neither try to hide that this is actually a serious episode nor shy away from madebit look like light heart one a...
