Re: Speculating about what could have happened to Newtype between Unicorn and F91?

The difference is that Full Frontal himself never actually met Amuro or Layla unlike in Z and ZZ where the newtype ghosts may have been just an "echo" of the person since they met before. If we consider Full Frontal as a clone, he also met Char's "ghost" as well so he's also quite distinct. Regardl...

Re: Was the Tarus mobile suit a suitable replacement...?

The Leo compared to the Taurus is basically like the Zaku II compared to Zeta era transformable MS.

Re: Was the Sazabi badly designed?

There's also the fact that just as Char was firing the mega particle cannon, Amuro had shot it several times with the Nu Gundam's vulcans.

Re: The Price of Smiles

So is this show worth watching? Been checking what people are saying and it is pretty meh from what I hear. My hopes were high at the outset, since Tatsunoko Production used to be one of the giants of mecha anime and this was supposed to be one of their anniversary projects... but this show's a tra...

Re: So there’s something that’s been bothering me about Epyon

The Zero system is too much of a failure as a military installment anyway. Most of the soldiers will pretty much go insane or just die when using it. So they may not see any reason in protecting a project they decided to scrap. Unlike the Tallgeese, which you can simply put a software or even a har...

Re: Dijeh - Is it really Earth-only?

Most later Neo Zeon units from the Zeta / ZZ era were high(er) performance (intended for) mass production models (exceptions being much more simple stuff like the Gaza-C and D, and others not reaching the mass production stage due to the internal conflicts like the Geymalk) and would more than likel...

Re: The obsoletion of MS-manned gun emplacements

I recall some Crossbone Vanguard mobile suits in F91 were destroyed at long range by Ra Cailum-class main cannons. While beam shields may be able to block smaller beam cannon shots, the larger main mega particle cannons still seem to be able to easily overwhelm the beam shield and destroy the mobile...

Re: How can OZ mass-produce Virgos with Gundanium Alloy?

Which is probably why the Gundam pilots needed the ZERO system from Wing Zero. In order to fight AI-controlled mobile dolls made out of Gundanium alloy, the pilots needed a system of their very own to counteract them. And at the time, they had Wing Zero and its ZERO system. The ZERO System existed ...

Re: The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Anime Thread Mk I

According to the Light Novel, Twilight Axis takes place several months after Unicorn. Also seems to be the last time we'll see anything related to the psyco-frame (Federation seeking to destroy anything related to its existence), which would help explain why it's never seen or heard of again in (off...

Re: Effect of beam weapon on electrical system

That's more indicative of the power of the Wing Zero's beam rifle than anything, though OZ mobile suits explode like they're made out of party snaps if someone so much as sneezes in their direction. Unless they're being piloted by Treize or one of the Killer Pretty Boys. :lol: That said, there are ...

Re: How fast can the Newtype brainwave be?

Speaking of which, was there ever an in-universe established reason for why the remote weapons of OYW-era Newtype-use machines such as the Braw Bro and Zeong were wire-guided rather than controlled wirelessly via the psycommu system like the Elmeth's Bits or the Funnels of the Qubeley and subsequen...

Re: Haman's Obsession and Axis/Neo Zeon's Newtype Drought

When it comes to Haman and Judau, it seems to follow a trend on (Cyber) Newtypes being drawn towards other (strong) Newtypes while also there seeming to be some sort of "first come, first serve" thing that goes on where it seems like such Newtypes are just incapable of moving on to other Newtypes, a...

In terms of Pie hijacking the Psyco Gundam Mark II's Reflector Bits, I also wouldn't be surprised if it had something to do with the fact that Pie Two is a clone of Pie and so could have similar, if not the exact same brainwaves, and so Pie's sheer determination to protect Judau, through her own Psy...

Well, look at the real world varients, many military vehicles has their own varients for countless reasons, its actually not really related to the length of the time given but more like whether they have a need for it.

And even if the Mudrock wasn't made specifically for hovering, it doesn't mean it can't in general, assuming its thruster power is strong enough to compensate for the extra weight of the additional weapons and ammo and able to maintain its balance and such.

As I was skimming through the various MSV, a certain idea struck me: Why does Universal Century always have more variation units of both Gundam and other Mass Production Units (counting MSV, manga, and game)? Of course, the logical answer would be U.C has always been the universe that receives the ...

Re: The pefect circumstance for Newtype power?

With Lalah, it also felt a bit like some sort of "bonding" issue with Newtypes. She, and even Haman, bring up how they "met him (Char) first" before the one they seem to actually like, or at least understand, more (Amuro with Lalah, and Kamille and/or Judau with Haman) and so seeming like they're "s...
