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

I enjoyed the episode & the season. All the online discussion from the various corners of the internet added sauce to the mix. Mmm, Tomato sauce. Guel’s luck is simply remarkable. He manages to snag the Desultor whose comms are borked, is looking away at precisely the moment the cockpit monitor ...

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

It was nice to be somewhere warm enough for just a T-shirt over the past week or so. In any case, an assortment of thoughts, opinions & observations about the previous two episodes & then some. About Suletta: I've come to realize something integral to Suletta: her sense of self-worth is tie...

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

The answer to that likely is whatever Quiet Zero is. The discussion makes it sound like GUND factors into it somehow. It clearly isn't something he wants to share with the Benerit Group. I'm guessing it extends beyond profits and is more personal which is why he's willing to be a massive hypocrit. ...

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

I was woolgathering about the similarities in personality between the two Zenellis, but anyways, it was announced on the official twitter account that episodes 11 & 12, in a cascading effect, will be delayed due to the 12/18 timeslot being pre-empted by a special end-of-the-year program over at ...

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

I find Renee's behavior natural in the sense that there are people who'll fight for the most petty of reasons, for no other stake than their own shallow desires. She's very much an adolescent who probably thought the whole thing was a lark, given how her main concern before the fight was about the p...

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

Does anybody know what the general audience consensus of the series is? I know it started off strong, but I wondering if audience reaction is changing as the episodes pass? On ratings numbers, it's difficult to tell with Japan since it's on a lot of online streaming sites as well as live TV broadca...

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

This one has been in my mind for a bit as well I was very interested on where this particular element would go since the prologue since Gundam rarely tackles the effects on human physiology from living in space. But so far, we haven't really seen anything, as Ryujin mentions though so far we've onl...

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 fin...

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

On ep.8 & watching the IPO scenes with a smirk, since I don't have fond memories of the actual process. Okay, that bit between Prospera & Suletta had creepy indoctrination vibes on a Jim Jones/Charles Manson level all over it. Miorine wouldn't even notice the full extent since Suletta wasn't...

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

Not surprised at all by the reactions of some viewers. I personally think that Prospera's initial objective with sending in Suletta & Aerial was simply to get Delling's attention & secure a meeting with him. Whatever her plan was, it was flexible enough to account for friction in the Clausew...

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

This is probably more in line w/the M & T thread, but I have to wonder to what degree the GUND-associated systems were integrated with the Lfrith chassis. Depending on that, there could be a whole bunch of Lfrith parts circulating out there after the great Ochs Earth Clearance Sale, where EVERYT...

Pointed out by someone elsewhere, Official English translation of the web short story: https://en.gundam.info/about-gundam/series-pages/witch/music/novel/ There may be some nuances that are missing in fan TL's... Such as Prospera mentioning the duels & the prize, but nothing about Suletta actual...

There's an Interesting detail in how Elan with the Heero Yuy hand gesture has a different earring than what Elan's been wearing throughout the series & on his character page. His 'ice prince' personality must have also been intentional, given their whole deal. Anyways, been thinking about Prospe...

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

With how 'Dilanza' sounds like a pun on 'The Lancer' (Fate joke much?), perhaps there's some corruption of 'Chivalry' or 'Cavalry' involved as well.

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

I was considering that, with the whole 21 years thing, maybe Prospera had simply remarried on Mercury & conceived Suletta before the second husband died as per official records, but it doesn't line up with the short story. It states that mother & daughter arrived on Mercury & the daughte...
