Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Char lets Revil go for some political theater. Revil then makes a speech calling Zeon weak and resource dependent, giving the Federation pretense to continue fighting, and M'Quve pretense to launch the invasion of Earth. Yeah, Revil's famous "Zeon is exhuasted" speech was a nice touch in this adapt...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Well, after a break, we finally get to the finale. Char lets Revil go for some political theater. Revil then makes a speech calling Zeon weak and resource dependent, giving the Federation pretense to continue fighting, and M'Quve pretense to launch the invasion of Earth. Garma Zabi shows off his Hol...

Re: Gundam Seed Movie Status

I remember many years ago reading an old and fairly bad GSD sequel fic that did exactly that - brought back not only the GSD trio, but also the Seed junkies, handwaving it as "cloning" while ignoring the fact that cloning has, as per both series, some pretty substantial health ramifications. Can't ...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Zeon is celebrating its victory over the Federation at the new Deikun Ballroom. Garma gets very confrontational with Char over his accomplishments, and it was done in a way that I found very... disturbing. ... that it was disturbing was kind of the point. Garma Zabi is a deeply insecure, cosseted r...

Episode 12: Loum's Aftermath Zeon is celebrating its victory over the Federation at the new Deikun Ballroom. Garma gets very confrontational with Char over his accomplishments, and it was done in a way that I found very... disturbing. I honestly don't like what happened to Garma, and that shows when...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

In all, I might start disliking this series again if it picks up to do the whole MSG run, with how they change characters for worse (and only a few for better).

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

If I remember it correctly that changes in Origin compared to the Original. Since we see Zeon attacking Side 5 earlier in Origin with ships and mobile suits. Remember Texas the Colony that Sayla was on when she looks up and sees Char's Zaku standing on top of the colony. I Think? Or was it the one ...

Episode 11: The Battle of Loum's Outcome! This is the episode that launched the careers of many of Zeon's ace pilots, including Char Aznable, the Black Tri-Stars, Johnny Ridden, Shin Matsunaga, etc. Dozle's fleet is getting a pummeling from Tianem, and decides to make a tactical retreat. However, th...

Re: Gundam Seed Movie Status

At this point, I'd rather have a CE redo. With all the potential wasted due to a troubled production and turning in scripts late, we deserve better.

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Quick note about Episode 9: Dozle became my favorite character in the series, period. Episode 10: The Battle of Loum begins! Tianem and Dozle clash, while Revil is heading towards a clash with destiny. Meanwhile, riots are consuming Side 5, including Texas Colony. Mr. Diablo dies while his home is u...

Also, Kycillia is going undercover on the moon.
The best part is how screamingly ugly her outfit is. It's like she decided the best way to disguise herself, being one of Munzo's highborn, was to dress like a fashion victim.
That would be good, right? Nobody would suspect that.

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Episode 8! A more Amuro-focused episode, we get introduced to Fraw, Kai, and Hayato. And I must say, after playing the Gundam games on PS2, it's weird to not here their original dub VAs. Kai is nowhere near as shrill, but Hayato sounds a lot like his older VA. I swear, there's a story as to why they...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

So, Episode 7. This one has a lot more Tem Ray in it, and how he believes that the RCX-76 Guncannons aren't real mobile suits. Also, Char, Ramba, and the Black Tri-Stars sortie against these "fake" mobile suits, resulting in the death of Dr. Minovsky himself, probably the brightest mind of his era a...

Episode 6, aka How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love Dozle Char and Garma's insurrection has begun, and Char gets his signature mask from the guy that figured out he's no actually Char, but actually Casval himself! He later dies after commandeering a Type 61 MBT, while not figuring out to climb...

Episode 5! Zeon Bootcamp! "Char" nearly gets his cover blown because he couldn't invest in brown-colored contact lenses. Also, the faux bromance between "Char" and Garma officially begins. Let's applaud with chants of "Pick them up!" We get introduced to the Ultracompact Fusion Reactor design that w...

Re: Official Gundam Games & Upcoming Releases Thread Mk IV

So, anyone else looking forward to the new SD Gundam G-Gen Cross Rays?
I'm still sad that F91, Crossbone, and Victory still aren't being represented.
Also, After War Gundam X is also missing from the lineup.

Episode 4! Poor Astraea. Deprived of her daughter's letters, she dies alone in the tower. Ramba and Mash duke it out in mobile workers. "Edward Mass" (I can't really like how they pronounce the name. It sounds more French than anything) beats up a cowboy suspecting him of being a spy, and we meet th...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

There's no image of Jimba Ral holding little Artesia like in the original, and instead he's a jibbering conspiracy theorist. Are you referring to this image ? I always thought it was Ramba Ral who was holding Artesia in his arms in this picture. I mean, It's definitely Ramba in Origin volume 3, but...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Unlike his original version, Origin 's Jimba Ral is a paranoid nutjob who hates the Zabi family with a passion and blames all the world's ills on them. Nothing drives that home quite so effectively as seeing him hiding in a closet in his own home, armed to the teeth, for fear that the Zabis were co...

Oh yeah, I also forgot to mention Jimba Ral selling out to everyone's favorite mega-corp, Anaheim Electronics, for his revenge plan.
