Re: GM Sniper Custom Family Tree

In real life, the GM Sniper Custom came out as it was one of the earliest MSV units. However, due to retcons and updates, the Ground GM is one of the earliest GM models when 8th MS team came out. As for the GM Sniper II, it was a more general purpose machine with much higher specs compared to the ol...

Re: Gelgoog development acceleration?

Yeah, it was infighting, not just on the political side but also on the corporate side that screwed over a LOT of things for Zeon. Getting a intact Guncannon with beam rifle would not have made any difference. Lack of proper planning was a issue too, look at MS IGLOO alone and see the various proble...

Re: How many more 'new' U.C. stories can be told in anime form?

I just think of it as a spin off manga with no real relations to other universes stores, like Gundam EXA. I haven't read it myself but I don't treat it any different than a SD Gundam story. Sometimes they can be interesting or just fun to read.

Re: How many more 'new' U.C. stories can be told in anime form?

Crossbone Steel 7 was a alright story, but Ghost and Dust plot is pretty convoluted and bad like latter Astray stories, the more it goes on the worse it gets. It seemed for a long time that Hasegawa was the only one doing late UC manga, thankfully there is a ongoing new F90 manga called Fastest Form...

Re: How many more 'new' U.C. stories can be told in anime form?

I think there should be an interquel between F91 and Crossbone to explain some things, not to mention tie up a couple loose ends from the F91 side, not to mention a F91 show to gain the full story instead of that compressed film. Say yazi88, what makes Crossbone "very overrated and hyped to death" ...

Re: How many more 'new' U.C. stories can be told in anime form?

Gundam Sentinel, like Crossbone, is also very overrated and hyped to death. The actual plot and characters is pretty flat and boring. It was probably the 1st ZZ Sidestory and it has some interesting settings, but it doesn't really go anywhere in the end nor leave much of a impact. The designs are gr...

Re: Zeon Gundam?

Nimbus was doing his own petty thing rather than following Zeon higher up orders. Delaz Fleet stole the GP02 on purpose and used the Federation's weapon against them. It was pretty symbolic too. And like its mentioned above, the GP04 was converted into the Gerbera Tetra. Let's not forget the Psycho ...

I don't do twitter news, but this is pretty nice. VOTOMS Ultimate blu-ray collection coming out via Maiden Japan. Combines all 3 previous blu-ray sets that came out in the past 2 years and puts it all in 1 boxset. No Mellowlink though. Its odd they chose Fyana's unit rather than Chirico's Scopedogs....

Re: Questions about the GM Cannon

The Project V Guncannon was a very LIMITED production unit as Federation barely rolled out a couple of units before the GM was officially rolled out. GM Cannon was a much cheaper unit with cheaper armor and performance which made it a lot easier for mass production. GM cannon also shared most of the...

Re: European Influence in Gundam.

Also, a lot of Super Robot anime battles are fought in Japanese settings too.

Gundam not doing it isn't that big of a deal and Gundam works also take place in a much bigger scale rather than just 1 country. That also applies to a lot of real robot shows too.

Re: New IBO possible movie/NT like...

As of now, nothing announced. The G-Reco movies are still being made, so any possible IBO movies (likely compilations) will not be happening until those are done. G-Reco aired before IBO, and these compilation movies go in order in which the TV shows aired. If there was to be a announcement for IBO ...

Re: GitS: SAC 2045

CG is not that bad, but its a down grade considering production IG worked on the SAC TV shows and movie before this...

Thankfully this new show still has the same main writer and director involved. So that helps deliver the core experience we are familiar with and make up for the CG style.

No, its not a test pilot/promo for a remake. Its a special animated short made to celebrate the 40th anniversary. Much like the Gundam Perfect Mission animated short that was made for the 30th anniversary. It means nothing to remake MSG, nor does MSG need a anime remake. If you want a retelling of M...

Re: will Gundam Unicorn Re: 0096 TV Edit get released?

0096 was a lazy TV edit with very few things added. The only nice thing to come out of it was the new music.

This TV edit was made to replace a no name anime that was cancelled at the time.

It adds nothing of actual value, outside a few extra scenes.

The dub for the Seed and Destiny Remasters were announced a long time ago, I believe it was last year.
