Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I really hope that they would go back on the timeline and make a show which the VF-11 could take the center stage. It is a good VF in book looks and specs. It's just that it was way over-classed by the YF-19 and YF-21. Yeah, it's a bit unfair that we've never really gotten to see the 3rd Generation...

Re: What is the future of Gundam??

Wait, you mean other Gundam series aren't just a thinly disguised commercial? Okay, maybe not thinly, but they are all just product commercials.(FG isn't a gunpla commercial) One of the reasons I had a lot of respect for Yoshiyuki Tomino was that he had no use for the idea that anime was just for g...

Re: Who controls what Gundam shows get Dubs now?

Valid and logical points. i guess their quality dub of Mobile Suit Gundam was a gamble that didn't pay off so they used their budget studio for Zeta. Dubbing a very old series like Zeta Gundam is also a much bigger risk, financially, because you either have to go out and spend more money to build a...

Re: Who controls what Gundam shows get Dubs now?

Can someone with knowledge explain how the dubbing w/ gundam works now? The same way dubbing any other series works... it might be the eight hundred pound gorilla in Japan, but outside Japan it really isn't given much in the way of special treatment. and it also seems like the older Gundam shows fr...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Had Kawamori planned from the start for the Sharon Apple incident to be the explaination for why automated weapons hadn't replaced humans and Zentrandi, or was NUNS's phobia toward A.I. only appeared in later installment? Kind of? Macross 7 and Macross Plus were in concurrent development, so it was...

Re: What is the future of Gundam??

I think we will get a lot of Build Fighter shows every year and a few UC manga/novels that get turned into short anime series(Origin, Unicorn, Thunderbolt, Hathaway). I think the AU is gonna slow down or die. Personally, I suspect if anything will eventually kill Gundam it'll be the Build series. I...

The Official Gundam Hathaway Anime Thread Mk I

From what the producer for the film said "the project will feature a "renewal" of the main cast, mobile suit designs , and character designs." We've seen that they've updated the classic Haruhiko Mikimoto character designs for something that looks more like what was in Gundam Unicorn , but the art ...

Re: What is the future of Gundam??

with regards to Alternate Timelines i think Sunrise/Bandai have really extended themselves creatively. Everything from G Gundam to AGE Gundam to the more comedy oriented Gundam shows. Alternate universe stories have been the Gundam franchise staff's one creative outlet for ages now... though even t...

Lets hope that it isn't another deus ex psychoframe.
It didn't have one in the original light novel... its gimmick was that it was a transformable MS with a Minovsky craft system, a special Minovsky barrier that let it fly at supersonic speeds, and psycommu-guided missiles.

Anyway, how much of the galaxy has humanity in Macross managed to cover? Humanity has traveled great distances across the galaxy... but they've explored relatively little of the galaxy, as the setting lacks the kind of superpowered sensors with interstellar range that are common in western sci-fi l...

Has there been any Macross OST album being released on cassettes? I have just read about the way Japanese anime music came to the States, and it seemed like except a few cassette releases, most albums were released on either vinyls or CDs. I think they kinda went right from vinyl to compact disc th...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

You don't need to show them. We have not been shown a lot of things, you actually never see any of the characters paying a visit to the toilets but you won't argue if they need to go to the toilet or not. We haven't even see a lot of the mass transit in the colonies, and how the air locks really wo...

Re: Could modern roads withstand the weight of MS?

Wrong metric... it's not a question of weight, but rather of ground pressure. Specifically, how much surface area you're spreading that weight across. Your average adult male exerts about 8psi on the ground while walking. Despite the M1 Abrams tank weighing upwards of 67t its ground pressure is only...

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

Just gonna throw this out there, but the idea that the colonies are kind of overcrowded sh*tholes is pretty consistent with the whole Universal Century setting being about the Earth elite kicking all the poor people off the planet into a bunch of spaceborne shanty towns so they can live in luxury.

Re: What kind of labour work could an 18m MS do?

Although I have not idea why anyone will want to use such a complicate piece of equipment over the much simpler SP-W03(base for Ball) and/or JMS, MMS. Apart from greater operational versatility in the field, the one reason I could maybe see someone using Mobile Suits for heavy labor applications wa...

Re: What kind of labour work could an 18m MS do?

Weren't Mobile Suits developed from heavy colony construction equipment in the first place?

I doubt they're useful for much else besides colony maintenance.

Re: Von Braun and Moon Cities - Gundam

This is absurd. Apart from the fact that we have never seen in Gundam any scene in which von Braun turns like a spinning top, it would also be impractical with large cities and buildings as we see in von Braun. Not really... it won't work much differently to the interior of a colony, which we've se...
