Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Hmmm, what's the deal with streaming in US? With Daisuki going under, is this completely off the table now, thus forcing the US demographic to pay $100 for an import bluray?

Looking at the new trailer that came out, looks like Ramba Ral finally got that 2-rank promotion that he was looking for!

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

If I remembered correctly Lightning Count, whatever age they were stated to be in the original 0079, is roughly their Origin age in US 0068 (when Episode 1 starts up). It's pretty collaborates well in the Casval 0057 Origin side stories in Vol 12, where Dozle is a punk in high school, Kycilia is a l...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Mecha Thread Mk I

On the note of The Origin episode 4 and the "first mobile suit battle" I have some questions. So, people are devastated by the development of the Zaku, which i can kind of understand. Would it be like the original, were the EF has no equivalent, then it would truly be terrifying. However in this sc...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Episode 5 (Clash - The Battle of Loum) will be released Fall 2017, and Episode 6 (Birth of the Red Comet) will be released 2018. This is quite different from the 6-month delay between episodes, which means there's basically one logical hypothesis: they're buying time to gear assets and production u...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

I watched the Youtube panel for this weekend's Origin III premiere in London and the translator said "if it all goes well, there may be opportunities for us to remake the First Gundam, but we first have to see how it goes and we need your support." Writing was on the wall and I saw this coming a mil...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

For readers who were familiar with the Volume 5 Manga, I was kinda bummed/surprised/dissapointed the episode ended that way, VS the final ending of the manga volume. when Casval answers the role call as "Char Aznable", vs the OVA when he just ditches Artesia/Sayla and the credits ended that way. An ...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Mecha Thread Mk I

Quick question, if anyone knew.... In light of the Dozle's customized, uber-super-light cruiser Valkyrie, of which a model just got announced via the Cosmo Fleet series (which means they've been hyping it up), WTF ever happened to it? Also, were there any confirmed Chivvay cruiser names, other then ...

Re: 120mm Zaku Machine Gun VS Luna Titanium Alloy & GM Shiel

Is it still 120mm? In volume 1 of the Origin when the Zakus attack Side 7, there's shell casings from their rifles that say "Zeon Arms 140mm" on 'em.

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Yeah dude, it's confirmed, both on the official website and in one of those "special" interviews with Ikeda. I don't know off the top of me head of any recent teen roles he did though.

If the latest trailer is any indication, Ikeda is going to do a great job as Casval.

Degwin, looks like somewhere out there, someone was listening. Huge website update on the Japanese side man, including a screening release date (Halloween). I'd reckon the English one will come soon.

Re: New Origin World Orientation Courses

The latest updates on the Japanese side have been pretty stagnant, just a few interviews and PR news at "Club Eden" part of the website. Probaly since much of the new introduced characters might be deemed spoiler-ific to those who aren't familar with the story (the Aznables). But they could get crea...

Re: NBC usage at Loum/Side 5

I was reading Vol 9 of the Origin, where Sayla confronts her brother, saying that after the punks attacked the Mass residence, they had to watch the rest of their "country" burn. To which Char said that he was the one who convinced the higher-ups not to attack Texas Colony, out of concern for her sa...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

The site's updated again, but one thing I noticed is that they're switching back to Navy ranks (in contrast to the manga which had the NCOs with Army ranks). Denim is listed as Chief Petty Officer instead of Master Sergeant now.

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

I'm wondering whether naming the cat Lucifer is a deliberate homage to Cinderella, the antagonist's main cat was named Lucifer as well.
