Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

What's GUN X SWORD like? Is it comedy focused; more serious, or a mix of both? How big of a role do the mech's play in the overall show? Aside from being compared to Trigun and Cowboy Bebop, it seems to have faded into obscurity. After playing the SRW plot about it, I must say I don't like it. At l...

Re: UC elitist fans...

The rest of the Federation opens an R&D division on a neutral colony, and leaves them to fend for themselves when a battle erupts, only caring for the Alex. The Grey Phantom is there, so the rest of EFSF didn't really leave the colony to fend for themselves, only that particular officer telling the...

Re: UC elitist fans...

Eh... I disagree. Garma never really got enough character development before his death in the original series to establish himself as more than a moderately debonair leader of the Zeon occupation force who was only slightly less of a scumbag than the average Zeon soldier because he seemed to be gen...

Re: UC elitist fans...

IMO, you can credit a lot of that to OVAs like Gundam UC , Origin , War in the Pocket , the 08th MS Team , Stardust Memory , and MS IGLOO painting some of the Principality's troops in a less unflattering light. The worst of Zeon's characters are still portrayed as overtly and clearly villainous... ...

Re: UC elitist fans...

So exactly what part of Gundams ongoing storyline were actually Tomino's ideas? I know he wrote some of the music under a pseudonym. Also if Eiji Yamaura was the main creative force behind the Hajime Yatate pseudonym, does that mean the main character of Layzner was named after him? No idea, we wil...

Re: Dom and urban combat in UC

Huh, I never even considered that. I suppose Zeon probably would've put their own satellites in orbit for their own comms, or just have ships orbiting as relays. Ships would be very inefficient as that, I mean, they have so much more other missions they excel in, and defending the orbit isn't reall...

Re: UC elitist fans...

Whose idea was the principal outline of Gundam anyway? I'd heard before that the outline was written before Tomino joined the project. So who was the original writer(s)? Granted the Sunrise group pseudonym Hajime Yatate can kind of make it hard to find out who did what. Gundam Archive had it covere...

Re: UC elitist fans...

Hmmm, let's see, Tomino gave the idea of G Gundam by saying "maybe a stage fight will be good" (Ignoring his mental status at the time) So, G Gundam is also a creation of Tomino more or less. The fun thing is, Tomino wasn't involved that much in First Gundam albeit what most people think. The planni...

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

Bear in mind, that's also true for the PLANTs if you look at their internal layout... so that's not exactly what I'd call a counterpoint. The PLANTs are about as suboptimal as it's possible to be for a space colony, though the numbers given for UC colonies are just flat impossible. That is my point...

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

Well for what its worth, Junius Seven(and most likely 8, 9 and 10) is already producing food by the time the nuke struck, judging by the flashbacks of farms, vast fields etc. According to the old gundamofficial, the remodelling of the colony into an agricultural colony started in CE69, so optimisti...

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

I am sure they can grow some genetically engineered super crops that can make the most out of the limited surface area. Especially when they can grow giant trees to make giant bolt-action rifles for their giant robots. But speaking of Plant interior, while the residential zones are fiarly opened ai...

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

I think that number is probably excessive... with 60 million people and less than 18,850km^2 to work with, that'd be over 3,300 people per square kilometer. That's halfway to Hong Kong's population density. Definitely not something supported via the animation, which has always shown the PLANTs as s...

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: Dom and urban combat in UC

In 08th MS team, the battle in the city, there is a Dom that hovered and jumped. So Doms are perfectly useable in urban combat. I guess the hot thermonuclear jet could damage the ground if the asphalt was heated up too much tho. But honestly, even the 99kmh run speed of Gouf is probably already a t...

Could anyone remember any instance of Dom-type mobile suits engaging in urban combat? I wonder not only how would the machines would manuever inside a city with their bulky size, but also how the city landscape affect the hoverjets? And speaking of which, how do you think urban infantry combat usua...

Re: Undersea Cities

Underhook being a prototype colonization project makes sense. While it's only shown briefly, the exterior looks kinda like the lunar cities. Probably inspired by similar projects in real life, like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tektite_habitat funded by NASA. NASA actually keep working on underwate...
