Re: Grendizer: Where does it stand in terms of popularity among the Mecha fandom?

This is a topic that's been bothering for a while now, just how popular is UFO Robo Grendizer among Mecha fans in general? Now? Or back when it was new? In Japan, or outside of it? I ask, because those are radically different answers. This created the popular assumption that the anime wasn't a succ...

Re: UC elitist fans...

I wouldn't say Origin makes all the Zabis uniformly less villainous, especially Dozle. I'd agree with you about him up until Operation British, when he shoves aside his moral anguish and commits some amazing mental gymnastics to convince himself that what they did was right because the colonists we...

Re: Battletech

Look I know the Battletech/Mechwarrior franchise is caught up in the whole Harmony Gold/Macross mess. But where did the original concept for the series come from? Mecha Anime wasn't really imported into North America at the time (this predates Robotechs release), so did they come up with the idea a...

Re: UC elitist fans...

The worse type of Gundam fans in my opinion though are the Nazi who idolize Zeon. Thanks god that they usually keep to themselves! You can still search for some of their groups on Facebook though. Can't say I've seen any Zeon fan groups or fan pages that are in that part of the real world political...

Re: Popularity of the Alternate Universes

I know that the universal century timeline is seen as being the most popular/profitable amongst longtime fans, but what about the AU's? I know it would vary on a cases by case basis, but did any of the other universe become more popular than the UC(at least at the time)? Given the sheer size of the...

Re: Freedom Gundam (SPOILER)

Is it every said anywhere who the Freedom Gundam's original pilot was? Athrun was the original pilot of the Justice, which he stole when he defected. The unit is seemingly meant to operate in tandem; so was the pilot to be someone like Dearka(before he defected) Yzak, or even Rau? According to the ...

Re: UC elitist fans...

The fun thing is, Tomino wasn't involved that much in First Gundam albeit what most people think. [...] So no, Tomino isn't the franchise creator. He is a VERY good codifier and promoter(to the point of propagandist), but not the creator. Yes, we know... the same is basically true for all of the "c...

I have no choice but to write this article. FactCheck says: Mostly False.

Re: How many people can live on the PLANT"S ?

Ironically, that is still very comfortable compared to the UC colonies setting of 30 mil per colony. And HK's pop density is very misleading. Over 70% of it is just mountains with no buildings and very hard to build on.(I believe they didn't include sea portions in the official area) Bear in mind, ...

Re: How many people can live on the PLANT"S ?

Well, the "new" Gundam Seed Mechanics and World give PLANT a population of 60 million coordinators, presumably not counting the (very)small number of naturals that are parents. I think that number is probably excessive... with 60 million people and less than 18,850km^2 to work with, that'd be over ...

Re: How many people can live on the PLANT"S ?

Is the population of Coordinators smaller (which given the genetic modification, seems likely) or was this the result of the PLANT's being transformed from resource satellites to living space? After reviewing the available material, I've found nothing that gives an average population for the indivi...

Re: How many people can live on the PLANT"S ?

So... assuming the published measurements for the PLANTs are accurate in describing the PLANTs as 30km across on their longest axis and sporting two circular habitat areas 10km in diameter, your typical PLANT has a habitable area totaling approximately 157.08 square kilometers. The actual value will...
