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

I find the motion comic format annoying, as I know I could read that material much faster than the seven minutes it took for the video to play.

Re: Would Macross be more popular/respected if Robotech did not exist?

Honestly, I feel that Robotech has damaged the preception of what Macross 'really' is in the eyes of Americans and English speakers and generic cartoon watchers. Only true anime nerds know the difference. to fix that a total a complete reintroduction of Macross and what it is - i feel is required. ...

People on Mecha Talk have tended to gravitate toward discussing real robots mostly, but super robots have always been welcome here.

Re: What could've happened to the Gundam franchise if ZZ was a hit in the '80s?

Is it not a fact that there was a backlash from the fans and viewers when ZZ aired and the creative team reacted by making changes. Are you trying to imply that in your point of view ZZ reasonated with the fans on level with Zeta when it aired? I mean seriously, I don't need statistics and data to ...

Re: New Gundam PC Game - Gundam Evolution

DOM Trooper seems like such an odd choice to represent SEED. Why not something more recognizably SEED-original? And if they really just wanted to have a Dom, why not have used one of the many UC variants?

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

So how far in the Timeline do you think the movie will be set? I was reading an old thread about the CE Timeline; its a long thread, but the main point is that its vague as to the period the events occur (Ie how long is SEED Destiny set over?). I'd guess about CE 74-75; it seems like a couple of ye...

Re: The Official Gundam Hathaway Anime Thread Mk I

Since they don't elaborate on it, it let's the viewer decide if they are referring to the Geara Doga, Re-GZ or Alpha Azieru. I'm hopeful they keep this up rather than lock down onto one continuity or the other. I highly doubt that they're referring to the Re-GZ because they said something to the ef...

Re: The Official Gundam Hathaway Anime Thread Mk I

Is the movie trilogy following the Novel/ or CCA? As has been discussed before you'd only need to slightly tweak Hathways motivation to match up with CCA (they both involve Quess's death). However Hathways discussion about stealing the Jeagan and destroying the α-Azieru are directly taken from the ...

Re: Endra Class

In regards to the Argama, I think she was given to Karaba. Yes, I know that, but we don't know what happened to the ship after that. Was it destroyed fighting Neo Zeon on Earth? Was it retired after the war? Was it integrated into the EFF like the Nahel Argama? What happened to Karaba anyway? were ...

On another note, it's the second time in the last two years I've to ask: What is Mikimoto doing these days? Pretty much everyone I know love Paplo Uchida's new character designs, but I wonder if he and Mikimoto made some discussions before the designs were made. He was working on the Macross: The F...

Re: Endra Class

We did see at least one Endra class ship pop up in Unicorn, and I'm kinda surprised that none at all made it into Char's fleet in Char's Counterattack. Like Underrated GM Custom said, the fates of these ships, if they're ever addressed, would probably be in some side story. We still don't even know ...

It's definitely implied that Durandal did it for the reasons mentioned above about his Destiny Plan. Furthermore, Destiny Astray tells us that he specifically selected Shinn as the pilot of the Impulse Gundam over its original test pilot, so he was definitely pulling many strings long before the TV ...

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

Main wishes: NO clip show episodes and absolutely NO Gundamjacks of any kind! SEED made absolute ridicule of Gundamjacks, while in Zeta that was a carefully planned event in SEED, especially in Destiny it became a farce, you just walk in into secret R&D military base, shoot everyone (about 10 soldi...

Re: MSG trilogy on Netflix

The test I used was the bonk/boink sound the Zakus make when they land on the surface of Side 7. In the original track, it's the same effect that is used in later series to represent the monoeye light up effect. I stumbled upon this by accident, because I was actually checking the subtitles. The des...

MSG trilogy on Netflix

So we all know that as of today, the original MSG trilogy and CCA are on Netflix. For those that this matters to, it seems that Netflix is using the original audio track rather than the re-recorded 2000 version that we've had on DVD and Blu-ray in North America. I haven't watched the latter movies t...

Re: Amuro and the Zeta Series

Interesting, I had always thought of Karaba as an anti-Titans group vice an anti-EF. Do you have any information on what happens to them after the Gryps Conflict since AEUG tends to meld back into the Federation/Londo Bell. I'm curious where that leaves Karaba and Hayato. In Hayato's case, it doesn...

Re: The Official Gundam Hathaway Anime Thread Mk I

We usually would have heard by now if it was a known Western group like NYAV Post. My worry is that they went cheap and did a Southeast Asian English dub like Build Fighters, which is....not great to say the least. As for MSG, that horrid English dub will never (and should never) see the light of da...

Re: The Official Gundam Hathaway Anime Thread Mk I

The trailer was subtitled, and given that no English dub has ever been announced for the movie, it's probably sub only for now.
