Re: Gihren as father of Glemmy, Puru and Alicia

Now, if Glemmy is really a clone, I wonder then why wouldn't they just clone Char instead of turning people into Cyber-Newtype copy of him (Full Frontal and Zoltan Akkanen). Probably for lack of an appropriate sample of Char... and the fact that the original was still very much around to get cross ...

Re: Gihren as father of Glemmy, Puru and Alicia

Someone said to me that this book acknowledges that Glemmy, Puru and Alicia Zabi were artificially conceived from Gihren's sperm and three different female donors. Have anyone here read this book and can confirm it? And, how believable are these explanations in your opinion? This may or may not be ...

Re: Evangelion's Netflix Dub

another thing i'd like to ask about is about Kaworu...peeps are complaining about his i love you line..does that mean majority of the fans have accepted him being into Shinji since the beginning? Truth be told, the alleged uproar over Netflix's translation of that line is pretty much entirely limit...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

So there is a Macross-ripoff other than Robotech? Now that I have no idea about. There've been a few over the years... The first was a South Korean series from 1983 called Space Gundam V that was made back during a period when Japanese cultural imports were banned in South Korea. The show was a sup...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I have heard that China lately had been tightening the noose around copyright violators, partly because they want to appear to be as a more "legitimate" market for international firms. Lately, China's government has been getting increasingly panicky about its increasingly sluggish economic growth, ...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

I mean, the ships I listed were stationed at Yokosuka when the original Macross was made. Yeah, but the Studio Nue rookies who were developing the Macross series were doing so on a razor thin budget at the time and didn't have the clout or the money to get onto a US Navy base for a research trip th...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Other ship inspirations are similarly odd.

The ARMD-class space carrier is a modern Medium Auxiliary Repair Dock (US Navy hull code: ARDM) turned upside down.

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

An interview with Miyatake. Beside the blurb about Starship Troopers, I also found the part he talked of the aircraft carrier at Yokosuka interestin--I wonder whether had he seen the Midway, Kitty Hawk or the Independent when he started design for Macross. I'm not sure if they visited any warship m...

Re: Is MP F91 still has MCA? (Japanese reader please help)

Based on the above and what I've been able to dig up independently, the answer appears to be that Harrison's F91 production type still has the MCA but lacks the full-spec bio-computer and is not capable of the Metal Peel-off Effect. The cooling for the biocomputer is apparently done entirely through...

Re: How exactly could people convert energy from miniature fusion reactor to electricity?

I think it's not likely to be so, but I still have got to ask: How much could outside temprature affect the working of a fusion reactor? Cold weather shouldn't have any effect on the operation of a fusion reactor. It could potentially have an impact on the generator, if you're using just plain wate...

Re: Turn A Theory.

The first two Heisei Kamen Rider (Kuuga and Agito) are interesting in that there're hints of them being in the same continuity (mostly of the gears used by G3 team) but there's no explicitly stated to be in the same continuity. [...] so the two series that may or may not be in the same continuity a...

Re: Turn A Theory.

And that happy ending rides on the hope of whether or not the Dandelion Colonists made it to their new home, but if the crews descendants didn't have infighting from within and turned the Proxima Centauri system into another war zone. Well, said epilogue does indicate the Dandelion colony did succe...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Do we have any idea if the Zentrandi had fought any alien race beside the Protodevlin and human? Humanity is the only "alien" race that we know for sure the Zentradi fought. Their longtime foes, the Supervision Army, are made up of brainwashed Zentradi and Protoculture and the bodies of the Protode...

Re: Turn A Theory.

I see. I was hoping they'd take a note from Marvel or DC and make the non-UC installments "elseworlds" series. One of my takes on it is the producers want to go the tragedy route with the every bittersweet ending being rendered moot and the moonlight butterfly apocalypse being the penultimate disas...

Re: Arrangement of thrusters on the Wing Zero Custom's wings

Thanks. I can imagine doing maintainance on these wings would be a nightmare--too many small moving parts. Really, doing maintenance on a mobile suit in general would be a nightmare in and of itself... the wings aren't that much more complex. Like how the hell can the Shenlong has a flamethrower th...

Re: Arrangement of thrusters on the Wing Zero Custom's wings

I haven't got a Gunpla of Wing Zero Custom to check it out, but can anyone here check their models for me to see how exactly are the thrusters arranged on the wings? Are they positioned between the feathers? If so, then I wonder how do these thrusters work without being interfered by the feathers. ...

Re: How exactly could people convert energy from miniature fusion reactor to electricity?

Say, if you go by Gundam's ultracompact fusion reactors, do we have a general idea of how much energy is in the form of light, and how much in the form of other electromagnetic radiation types? In theory, very little... since the majority of any fusion reaction releases energy in the form of high-e...
