Re: UC elitist fans...

Dozle ends up depicted as a tough-but-fair father-to-his-men type who loves his siblings even while he's VERY concerned about the morality of their decisionmaking. I wouldn't say Origin makes all the Zabis uniformly less villainous, especially Dozle. I'd agree with you about him up until Operation ...

Re: UC elitist fans...

First of all, Bounding into Comics is a garbage pro-ComicsGate site, so of course their comments section is going to be a cesspool. As to UC elitists, this is nothing new, not just for Gundam but also every long-running franchise. You can look at anything like Star Wars, Star Trek, Marvel/DC, etc, w...

Re: Gundam Seed Blu Ray?

There was supposed to be a regular edition this year, but that plan was presumably delayed by having to reprint all the Ultra discs and send them out to everyone who bought that version. I'd imagine the regular edition will be out later this year.

Re: How many people can live on the PLANT"S ?

Out of curiosity, I went and dug up the old Gundam Official website on the Internet Archive. The SEED glossary has some interesting info on PLANTs, but unfortunately nothing about population.

Although not a city per se, the Gundam Thunderbolt manga features Zeon remnants operating in UC 0080 out of a third Dolos class supercarrier that's submerged under water.

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

Anyone here have watched the two mecha spin-offs of Tenchi Muyo: War in Geminar and Dual! Parallel Lun-Lun Monogatari? From what little I have watched of Tenchi Muyo, it feels pretty boring and generic to me. Should I spend my time for these two spin-offs? Also, here is the news about a crowdfundin...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

One series I'd definitely consider forgotten is Viper's Creed, a 12 episode series from 2009 directed by Shinji Aramaki and featuring transforming bike mecha. It didn't make a big splash in a Japan, and a few episodes aired in the U.S. on G4. After that, it got a subpar dub-only DVD release and fade...

Re: Crunchyroll and Funimation?

Well yeah, the entire point of the merger would be to have one larger library to dominate anime streaming. It will probably also eventually mean unifying accounts, the streaming software/backend, pricing, etc.

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...

my point I'm making is where is this official statement that the proposal was rejected? a random tweet that no one can find in some forum that no one has heard of from a random Twitter account for the character designer that no one can find. I'm supposed to trust that? Why wasn't it reported on off...

ok so when an 'official' statement goes out. I'll believe what your saying. beyond that i won't believe anything is cancelled
If the proposal was rejected and no series was greenlit or announced for production, what "statement" are you waiting for, exactly?

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

Anyone here who have watched that Neo-Byston Well OVA of Dunbine? I've always wanted to check it out since having the Sirbine on SRW T. It's....not at all good. The Sirbine is a nice design, but with only 3 episodes it's essentially a poor rehash of Dunbine. Also the animation is really weird and t...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

This gets me thinking. While Gasaraki obviously have almost no way of a revival, would Obsolete count as it being not completely dead and forgotten? I haven't watched the second half of Obsolete yet, but the first half gave me serious Gasaraki vibes. Given that Ryosuke Takahashi was a producer on i...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

I think Fafner, especially since it is still getting content, would fall under the umbrella of "underrated" rather than "forgotten." To me, forgotten implies a series that is dead, abandoned, etc., that has little or no chance of any continuation/revival.

Sentai stated from the start that this uber expensive set for the original series is the only version they'll ever release.
