Re: Ecole du Ciel

You... kinda missed the point. Twice. The initial excuse for Ecole du Ciel being on hiatus was Macross the First , but once that ended up on hiatus Macross the First 's hiatus was occasionally attributed to Mikimoto going back to work on Ecole du Ciel . Especally when the content earmarked for the ...

Re: Ecole du Ciel

Ironically, the hiatus has occasionally been attributed to prioritizing work on 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...

Re: Ecole du Ciel

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 that Softbank Creative were the worst ones when it came to deadlines, then Mikimoto-sensei one-upped them by making schedule slips for ann...

Re: The obscure mobile suits of an equally obscure game: SD Gundam Wars

Thanks for the link! Those are some nice quality sprites. I am shocked to see that the Federation adopted the giant wheel design from Zanscare with the Spirit Guntank :mrgreen: The strong Gundam resembles the large mobile armor from Kondo's Revival of Zeon manga, unfortunately I don't see it's coun...

Re: The Jegan A-Type's long beam rifle, and some ramblings about the Jegan line.

Also keep in mind that aside from a few exceptions Bandai-Namco games are known for churning out titles as quickly and cheaply as they can, not unlike EA with Madden or Fifa. I think they did a good job with 30 visually (although I agree with you, it's a waste of resources do redo animations from V...

Re: The Jegan A-Type's long beam rifle, and some ramblings about the Jegan line.

Was part of the reason the "Original Generation" made, because of licensing? If Banpresto made their own units and characters then they would have the ownership over them. This is probably why the anime and OVA's focus only on their own characters and story(which themselves are quite well...

Re: The Jegan A-Type's long beam rifle, and some ramblings about the Jegan line.

IIRC, one of SRW's biggest problem is how licensing take away huge chunk of their fund. Despite being the best selling title, Alpha barely make any profit back then for that reason (thankfully, it acts as gateway series and lays the foundation of Alpha Gaiden, which is much cheaper to made and thus...

Re: The Jegan A-Type's long beam rifle, and some ramblings about the Jegan line.

Well, yes... but how much of the lack of new IP is simply a product of Sunrise having stagnated the genre into submission with decades of form letter Gundam sequels and spinoffs? It's still proof that you CAN do something like that with the appropriate contracts drawn up... it's just a pain to do. ...

Re: The Jegan A-Type's long beam rifle, and some ramblings about the Jegan line.

Super Robot Wars stands as a testament to the fact that you absolutely CAN do stuff like that 100% legally today provided you do the paperwork FIRST. That being said, SRW is deteriorating FAST. Most of the shows used boils down to Sunrise shows with only a few that needs licensing from other compan...

Japanese SEED site announced official English terms.

https://www.gundam-seed.net/news/item.p ... tegory_id=

Will be standardised according to that site.

Gundam Info is still using old terms though.

Do we have word from Mark about this change?

Re: The Jegan A-Type's long beam rifle, and some ramblings about the Jegan line.

This is one of the very few examples of AE's standard e-pac appearing on a mass-production model's rifle. We start seeing e-pac of this shape since Zeta(out-universe)/0083(in-universe) and we can pretty much say it is AE standard issue but we don't really have mass production models using this until...

I'm afraid you've got your cause and effect backwards, and the wrong country.

Considering the penalty for intentionally killing another Gundam Fight competitor is immediate disqualification and it'd be stupidly easy to kill others with a sniper rifle that could shoot all the way through another MS, dialing the power down to a level that can damage mobile suits without punchi...

Re: Gerbera and Gerbera Tetra?

Aside from Zeon's developments in and before the One Year War, Gundam 's settings rarely (if ever) features any kind of design competition or a competitive evaluation process in which multiple manufacturers compete for military contracts the way they do in the real world.

Re: GW: Wing Gundam BR 3 Shot Maximum

I recall seeing somewhere that the gun or the Twin Buster Rifle on WZ will have to increase output when fired in air because air scatters the beam and thus making it overheat and can also only be used in limited capacity.
