Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Musing further on this & the stated quantum entanglement-like properties of Permet, it appears to me like the only perceivable use of GUND technology in medicine is a superior control/feedback loop (perhaps virtually instantaneous) with regards to artificial prostheses, resulting in an improvem...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

This one has been in my mind for a bit as well I was very interested on where this particular element would go since the prologue since Gundam rarely tackles the effects on human physiology from living in space. But so far, we haven't really seen anything, as Ryujin mentions though so far we've onl...

Re: Full Metal Panic! Director's Cut Edition Part 1: "Boy Meets Girl"

It probably came from Kyoto Ani on the fence about animating more, Xebec gave us IV and probably more if people had let go of Kyoto Ani who were never interested in animating another mecha anime TSR probably killed there staff. If we were to get more it'd be by Xebec or maybe another studio like Su...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

I'll echo some of Seto's setiments. I didn't care much for this episode, I understand they are shooting for a younger target audience who won't be well versed with corporations, investing, business plans, regulations, etc. but this was episode really feels phoned in. TBH, I would be prepared to bet...

Re: Full Metal Panic! Director's Cut Edition Part 1: "Boy Meets Girl"

not saying the show is a masterpiece, it was at least a B/B+ series, the manga was a great adaptation, they never got to Sigma, but the light novels are available with a new translation by J Novels Club so there must be some international interest even the short stories were licensed this year.

Re: Full Metal Panic! Director's Cut Edition Part 1: "Boy Meets Girl"

The series was big when ADV films had it and both them and Tokyopop released the manga and light novels, I have no idea why funi didn't license the movies considering they thought they had gold when they licensed TSR Yeah... but that was almost 20 years ago. Yes, it's been THAT long. **** do I feel...

Re: Ecole du Ciel

Ecole du Ciel was held since 2008 with the exception of two chapters in 2010 and 2011 to finish of volume 12. Macross the First was only serialised since 2009 so the most Ecole du Ciel can mess with it's schedule are those two chapters. You... kinda missed the point. Twice. The initial excuse for E...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Oh god, please get a different writer. Pretty please? Ichiro Okochi is not a bad writer. He has a LOT of good writing credits to his name and a plethora of awards. So why is this show so worryingly BAD in the writing department?! Is it executive meddling? Is he just phoning it in out of boredom? Is ...

Re: Ecole du Ciel

I don't suppose there's any way to get him back to work on either manga? Probably not. Mikimoto went independent back in the mid-80's after spending a couple years building up his portfolio at Artland, so there's no studio leaning on him. Just his current publisher. He's kind of quietly one-upped S...

Re: Ecole du Ciel

The case for Ecole du Ciel is a bit different? Mikimoto stated clearly he will be working on Macross the first so Ecole du Ciel will be on indefinite hiatus. And since it was never announced to restart, it is fair to say that nobody needs to follow any deadlines since there will be none. So, funny ...

Re: Ecole du Ciel

So I know this series is older (and unfinished), but it still ran for several volumes, and developed quite a bit of story along the way. Another fine product - or should I say casualty - of Haruhiko Mikimoto's extremely casual attitude towards deadlines. There was a time Macross fans used to joke t...

TBF, Delling could be... Expecting Miorinne to fail, which leaves the Aerial and Peil at his mercy anyway. Plus, a thought I had was there being a reason for his donation being 3% specifically. Then again, he could be humoring his daughter as Aerial despite being a Gundam hasn't killed Suletta yet,...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Really, this series is just a mess. Delling's wildly out-of-character reaction to the reveal that Peil Technologies were sheltering a witch and developing GUND-ARMs and that the Aerial is a GUND-ARM after all is problematic, but the key takeaway for the episode is actually before the opening credit...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Less of wish and more about "would not surprised if they pull it". Ironically, I got called naive when I mentioned in YT comment that I hope the show won't become too dark (as in become completely void of funny moment) Considering the show's producer, writer, et. al. have commented that t...

Definitely, this also falls into the issues of resources , or lack therefore. Ceres and the Peli group had a large amount of resources at their disposal for their schemes.

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

I read the story again, the closest things that imply that Aerial were in Earth sphere is how it note how they can't "go back" there. Which might be poetic speaking since their Mom came from there after all, the other times it mention Earth are when it note how Suletta learned about Earth...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

But it's also possible that's something Mom told it, possibly while working on its programing. We also see it near the end of the short story that she does speak with it alone. It's not unreasonable to assume that they do this from time to time. It doesn't remember being told about the Earth Sphere...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

I also don't see where Aerial connect itself to Lfrith. I too think it's modified Lfrith, but it doesn't say so in the story. Unlike Suletta, the Aerial remembers being in the Earth Sphere, why it had to leave, and what the probable consequences of returning are if it's discovered to be a Gundam. T...
