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...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

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...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

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.

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

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...

Episode three! Casval and Arte-er, I mean Edward and Sayla Mass have been living on Earth for a few years. Jimba Ral continues the sanity slippage from previous episodes, and both seem to be doing okay. Edward is sulking in his lectures, and Sayla attends to the locals as a nurse. But then, their ho...

That manga's epilogue did note they reached and colonized Proxima Centauri in UC 0653.
Then they created the Turn X?
Wouldn't that be hilarious. :lol:

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Its a alternate take on UC Gundam, hence the earlier development of mobile suits from the Federation side. The manga confirmed that in volume 1, that the Guntank and Guncannon were developed a lot earlier on compared to the MSG anime. And that these units were far weaker too. Well, the Origin’s Gun...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

So, episode 2. I don't like the inclusion of Guntanks this early in the UC timeline, because it shows the Earth Federation had the edge in mobile suit development before Zeon ever made their first prototypes. So far, that's my only complaint. Other than that, Gihren plays a board game, Casval sulks ...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

I know it's been almost a year since this thread was last active, so I'll make this brief. The Origin has began its run on Toonami as of last night, and I'll give you my thoughts on the first episode, not a summary of what happened. I don't like it. Zeon Deikun comes across as a crazed idealogue tha...

Re: Share your Gundam facts!

Re: Paptimus Scirocco & Jamitov Hymen Ideological Discussion

Another thing that jumped out to me was Scirocco's statement that he believed that the Earth Sphere would eventually be ruled by a female newtype (I suspect he was grooming Sarah Zabiarov for this role in his own mind). It is worth noting that Scirocco was "the man from Jupiter" and was associated ...

Re: Darling in the FranXX

^ Actually I get more of a Gurren Lagann vibe from it, although since Trigger was involved in the show it isn't all that surprising as they had a hand on all three shows. If anything some of the criticism I've seen online is that too many similar themes or plot points are showing up in their works....
