It's Gundam Wing's 20th anniversary

On this day which is also the 36th anniversary of Mobile Suit Gundam, New Mobile Report Gundam Wing first aired in Japan. I know that a significant portion of the fandom is still ambivalent to Wing at best, but it introduce many, many people in North America to the franchise and for a brief time gav...

Re: [Zeta Novel] - Zeon Zum Deikun's Speech

There is something I feel that should be pointed in all this, a bit of a recurring theme that Tomino has about the leaders of his Gundam series enemy forces. It that they tend to be hypocrites who don't believe in their movement's stated ideology and are just using it for their ambitions of gaining ...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Oh yeah, now that I actually take a look, it has been already discussed and the answer so far that others have reached seems to be "maybe". I was just thinking if Sunrise wants to graft it on to the original version, it wouldn't be that much of a stretch to do and they can just handwave any discrepa...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

So important question that I'm not sure has been asked already or not, is The Origin OVA going to become the official backstory for the original anime TV series/movie trilogy or is it going to be treated like how Zeta: A New Translation was? I know that Sunrise's only real rule to the idea of Gundam...

Re: [Zeta Novel] - Zeon Zum Deikun's Speech

So basically what Deikun is saying "Individualism is bad and responsible for Earth being polluted and everything would so much better if humanity only cared about simply surviving like we doing in space." How very.... totalitarian.

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk II

I wonder if this is Tomino hitting back against the overstated (and I would argue childish) melodrama that has largely overtaken mainstream anime in Japan. Considering how big and melodramatic he tended to make character death even in his previous lighter Gundam works like ZZ and Turn A, I sincerel...

"...Except for those designer babies, they're better than you stupid Muggles in every way." Isn't that ignoring the fact that it was the Naturals who came up with most of the mecha innovations (Phase Shift, Mirage Colloid, Beam Weaponry, Variable Backpacks, etc) in CE and all ZAFT did was steal and...

Is Tomino's work an acquired taste?

This is something I've been wondering about recently because of G-Reco. See while response of it here has been mostly positive, other places I go to that deal with anime like Anime News Network and My Anime List have not been so receptive of it. Of course, that's only if they bother to watch it at a...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk I

Having just seen it, I really loved it. The setting, the mobile suits, The connections to UC and possibly Turn-A, The OST also reminiscent of Turn-A, The characters (so far) especially Bellri who has to be the most cheerful lead Gundam has had since Garrod and Judau, the sheer retroness of it all. E...

Re: Cross Ange- New Sunrise x Fukuda mecha show

Man, this show really has the people over at Anime News Network up in arms about the ending. Having just watch it. I kind of see their point... I think I'll wait until it's ends before deciding to continue with it. The weird thing is Cross Ange doesn't really feel like anything done by Fukuda. Sure,...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk I

So what version of Tomino do you think we'll be getting with Reconguista? The one who directed Zeta, Victory and Ideon or the one who directed Turn A, Xabungle and King Gainer? Because considering how grouchy he's sounded lately I'm starting to suspect it could be the former despite looking and feel...

Re: What happens between ZZ and CCA?

Okay, all this this brings up a question I've been pondering about, where exactly did Char get the followers and the resources for his Neo Zeon movement? Did he just show up sometime after the Battle of Axis in front of what was left of Haman's followers and promised to finally give them victory if ...

That flashback of Zeon Deikun has him come across as a madman with messianic complex who'...
