Re: Questions for Mika Akitaka & Osamu Taniguchi?

The direct nature of the response surprised me a bit. Makes me wonder what the relationship between Kadokawa and Sunrise is like. Ace has been an effective zombie for quite a while, publishing reimagings and putting hype on their co productions like Unicorn and Irigin. Compare to a decade ago when i...

Re: Questions for Mika Akitaka & Osamu Taniguchi?

Here it is. I tried to keep the topic on The Origin, though sadly a few things got taken a bit too literally after translation. Asking about doing 0079 was also discussed more fully at the panel an hour after my session. Hopefully folks find value in it. http://www.toonzone.net/toonzone-mcm-london-c...

Questions for Mika Akitaka & Osamu Taniguchi?

Later this month at London Comic Con I should be doing an interview with Mika Akitaka (mecha designer) and Osamu Taniguchi (producer) who will be at the event to promote Gundam The Origin (episode III is screening there, a week after the streaming release launch). As I usually do, I'm opening the do...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

It's only a few days before the streaming even begins so it's nothing to get too excited about. The first 9 minutes are available. It's an interesting start to the episode. I'm interested in finding out just where the material in Jimba Ral's book comes from... haha It's exciting because the UK neve...

Re: Macross Delta new TV series

on the subject of the Sniper, it makes me wonder what ending will they use for frontier. if its the movie, i'll accuse Micheal of popularity power! :twisted: Given how amorphous Macross continuity is they likely won't mention it. Thanks to this interview with Tenjin Hideataka, we know that the new ...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk I

I'm gonna be completely honest- I cross posted that initial post elsewhere. Said elsewhere had basically no problem with it and that was coming from a place where other posters will happily tell me where to shove it if they disagree with me. No claims that because I wasn't mentioning those who outri...

Should all future posts by me just link to an MP3 of incoherent human moaning because apparently me discussing the negatives of something mean I absolutely never say anything positive and/or deny other people are too? Honestly, your previous post is probably a bad example to cite bec...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk I

People either hated it for being an SD or (like me) hated it for reducing her to power up for the boys. Or, you know, they liked it because it's a cool design and it's nice to see the massive SD Gundam sub-franchise getting some love after its brief appearance with Aila's SD Command Gundam in the f...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk II

It was my understanding that novel Banagher and animation Banagher are fairly different, the former apparently being more retro UC rough and ready. Animation Banagher was certainly on the 'UNDERSTANDING' path. Episode 4 and the mess of 'you should care about Loni because Banagher places her life abo...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk II

Bellri's attitude doesn't strike me as much different from Amuro's 'I'm not killing people, I'm just shooting at machines...' early logic. The idea Bellri wants to fight against something but has to constantly steady himself over having to take lives to achieve it/protect others to me is different t...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk I

I'm talking more about the character, less so the Gunpla. Though given the apparent lack of logic that kits ideas together in Try I could well believe Star Winning follows it's sibling just because it's what they wanted to do. Surely we can be amicable in discussing the show. It's usually when two o...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk I

The latest episodes have really puzzled me with Fumina. After how well BF did with women I was excited for the character. The team captain is an admitted Gundam fangirl who loves the hobby? This will probably be pretty good, especially since we've had some amusing and fair manga about the female fan...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk I

So the stepford cuckoo boys that were arbitering the fight, I wonder what they will be using. Because I will laugh my head off if they do either: 1. Combine into SRX 2. Jetto Sutoriiiimu Atakku! You're mixing your metaphors - Stepford Cuckoos was the name of an identical quintet of psychic sisters ...

I've been told that apparently the credits suggest that Kuroda has only been involved with scenario stuff and has only recently returned to the show as episode scriptwriter. Can anyone more informed please confirm or deny this please? Rumours run so rampant in this fandom and it'd be nice to know if...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk I

Build Fighters Try...still think they've wasted time but this week definitely gives the sense they had a plan for the character flaws all along.

One day, Kuroda, I will trust you.

totally gushed "Is that a Quanta?!" out loud when we got a good look at Transient.
