It still has the UN Spacy kite logo on the wing. That was one thing that I really missed in Frontier.

Well it wasn't just a promo, it was a full 30 minute episode. The first episode didn't rope me in at first. But after watching a few I was completely hooked.

I was so vocally against Macross Frontier after watching the preview episode when it was first released, it's hard to believe how much of an impact this show has had on me. It has become one of my all time favorites. Top five, maybe even top 3. The worst part about the ending is that the show is ove...

I guess what I was trying to say is that psychologically dated animation can hold up longer than dated cultural memes like hairstyles or clothing choice. Meaning a live action movie will date itself quicker than an animated one. Of course there are always exceptions.

It doesn't sound to me like it's a technological issue but more of a cultural one. Look how dated the animation in First Gundam looks, but specifically the character designs. Late 70's hair and costumes. Somehow, psychologically, the designs hold up more (though not much more) than if those same cha...

Macross Frontier has a few times, not just the sad parts, but there are moments where the use of music has really struck a chord with me (pun not intended). I hated the first ep of that series but it's quickly become one of my all time favorites.

Since the Rhino debuted several years beforehand I'd say the Hildofr gives off a Rhino vibe :lol:

Going to DragonCon in Atlanta again this year. My fiance is cosplaying as Haruko from FLCL (her first cosplay) and is trying to get me to go as the kid but I don't think I will.

The trick is to destroy the "troop transport" train in an earlier level that Visch pleads with you to let leave. Turns out the train was carrying the big gun for that MA. Makes the fight later MUCH easier.

I thought I heard Char's English VA in the trailer too, but not associated with a specific character, anyone else catch that?

Of course like many the first time I actually saw any Gundam was when Wing aired on Cartoon Network, but my first exposure to it was a couple of years before that. I had become obsessed with Robotech (and subsequently Macross) when it started airing on Toonami. Being a child of the internet age I be...

Wow ... I'm glad Steve Blum has gotten some talent and experience over the years. Now that I've heard that, didn't you guys use a clip from that in a recent Gundamn episode?

They also mention "Doctor Mao," so most likely the story comes from some sort of publication Mao Nome worked on after the disappearance of her sister and Shin.

The reference to Vermillion Team is in the Deculture edition of Ep 1. A bridge bunny basically says, "Vermillion team destroyed" or something to that effect. Looks like the new team got nothing but Kakizakis.

The Zentraedi were at war with the Supervision Army, they detected the ship defold and crash on Earth, but it took time to actually reach it to destroy it.

As far as UC vs Wing stuff, it all goes back to the need for anime fans to throw their weight around as to how much they "know" about various anime. Since Gundam Wing was so popular here in the states, it's the series that took the least effort to watch and get information on. Therefore there's an a...

Just finished episode 25, and ... wow! Thank Jeebus BSG comes back on Friday. One question for all assembled, who is Regene? This name seems to come from nowhere (at least that I can tell) and suddenly this is who the person who looks like Tieria is? And they speak? Did I miss something?

I agree Zangetsu, it looks like they're definitely gearing up for some new suits in October, or maybe even ... brace yourselves ... OLD ONES! CB doesn't have the time to create a ton of new suits so they upgrade old ones like the O Gundam and some of the ones from the mangas? Definitely a departure ...
