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...

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

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...

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

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...

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

With just the mention of a number, looks like a bunch of assumptions got turned on its collective head, and some of the wilder guesses may actually be credible. Rather disappointed that the Delling fallout didn't happen now, but 'Shall We Gundam' sounds rather on the nose. Anyways, episode skip for ...

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

Anyways, putting all that aside and going back to Asticassia's raison d'etre some more, perhaps we should be taking a closer look at the fact that Delling appears to have held an outsized influence in its development. As chairman, he was responsible for introducing all of its seemingly anachronistic...

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

There are many more students in the Management department than in the Piloting or Mechanic departments. Suletta is seen attending class with people who are certainly not pilots, so her curriculum is clearly not focused solely on MS-related subjects. I didn't say everyone was a pilot, I said the cur...

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

Getting caught up on this one, and The Witch from Mercury really isn't doing anything to grab me thus far. It's not bad, and it's not great... it's just kinda there . If anything, it feels underdeveloped to me. For me, the big one that demands explanation is why the Asticassia school exists in the ...

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

There's probably a certain degree of standardization with MS across the board with regards to controls, maintenance, construction, etc.-- that's probably one of the reasons for the existence of the Mobile Suit Development Council -- moreso with MS manufactured under the umbrella of the Benerit Group...

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

A bunch of unconnected thoughts in relation to the episode: -- There have been hints galore, but I appreciate having visual confirmation of the situation on Earth. -- The piloting curriculum has a clear emphasis on conflict resolution. -- Modular parts-switching on the Demi Trainer's pretty neat. --...
