Re: Ep. 037 - An Englishman in King Arthur's Court

Great Show as always, fellas. It's been a long time coming. As for Vision of Escaflowne , I do remember seeing commercials for it during the time it was aired on FOX. Given, this was about a year or so before I really got into anime, I wasn't interested. Had I would've seen it, given FOX/4kids pench...

Re: The Official Gundam 00 Season 2 Thread Mk VII: The Final

Well, I'm going to keep it simple. Gundam 00 was the first series that kept me entertained as much as the original Mobile Suit Gundam . Overall, I found the series enjoyable, epic, exciting and intelligent at its best moments (especially toward the end of the first season). Best of all, it was the s...

Simply put, both should not have been split into two seperate seasons with gaps between airing. Code Geass's situation was unintentional. The producer didn't feel that the project was going to be marketable as a 50 episode series which is why it was 25 episodes. Taniguchi decided to take a risk and...

If Fukuda and Morosawa ever plan on releasing the Gundam Seed movie announced back in 2006, they better do it this year. Not to take a detour into a unrelated topic, but considering there hasn't been an offical announcement from SUNRISE animation (who would have the final say over what Fukuda and M...

I just saw the movie this afternoon and overall, I was pleased. It's kind of weird to say, but the best executed part was the opening credits. Other than that, it was a decent adaptation, even though I felt that the restructured ending (the reunion scene between Sally and Laurie) fell flat on its fa...

If my research via the Layzner Japanese Wiki article is correct, Layzner's competition wasn't from a rival anime, but from Yūyake Nyan Nyan , a Variety show that aired on rival network Fuji TV. Yūyake Nyan Nyan featured the 80's J-pop idol group Onyanko Club, which was basically a j-pop version of M...

I acquired BGM 1 around Christmas, and BGM's 2-4 about three weeks ago. Layzner's Soundtrack was composed by Hiroki Inui, who also composed soundtracks for several of Takahashi's VOTOMS works as well. Like many soundtracks from the 80's, Layzner's music cues complement the visuals quite nicely. Some...

From the very little I've read, they're sticking close to the original source material (No "Battle of the Planets, Eagle Riders, G-Force et al). Just Gatchaman. It gives me a little bit of confidence in the project.

Seraphic: It's probably better if you watch the series before you make a final impression. I like Kamille, partly due to seiyū Nobuo Tobita's performance, and from watching him go from the angsty, hotblooded teen motivated by his emotions mature into a grim fatalist who only finds peace via Paptimu...

I somewhat disagree. While the end of Gundam Movie III does confirm Char's status (he is on the Gwaden), most, if not all of the loose ends are tied up, and the story for the most part, is closed. Concerning the "And Now..In anticipation of your insight into the future" message at the end of the mov...

Zeta has three OST's and two Special OST's, which are more or less B-Sides and Bridge Collections.

So I'm 2:36:39 into the show right now, and I'm taking a break. Great show so far... - I appreciated the analysis on the "Death" and "Resurrection" of Nunnally and how much it affected Lelouch and how much it progressed his character development. At the time of Turn 18/19's airing, I was in the "I t...

When Setsuna gets in the 00 he has his speech about how it's combining the power of Gundam Exia and 0, but how does he even have a clue what Gundam 0 is? I don't think he's ever seen it in action. Did the thrones girl ever pilot it? Setsuna knows about the O Gundam because it was the first Gundam w...

I definitely have a B/W copy of the Z Gundam symphonic suite album from a while ago. And yes, I had to do a double-take when I first saw it. As for the actual OST/BGM whatever-you-call it for Zeta Gundam, I thought Saegusa did a heck of a job scoring the series, using an mix of 80's R & B, and soft ...

Love what you guys are doing with Gundamn! keep it up! If you wanna show some love for Z Gundam's design, direct it to Kazumi Fujita. Compared to other designers from the golden age of real robot anime, he remains kinda obscure, but he gets principle design credit for the Zeta. Kunio Okawara gets cr...
