Re: What defines Mass Production?

Funny you mention that since the Pegasus class is usually shown with a small carrier capacity of 6 which is pretty small given its over 250m in length. Sometimes it is listed with a capacity of 12 though. Later AEUG / Titans / Londo Bell ships have a much larger capacity such as the Ra Cailum holdi...

While this is very impressive, the final scene putting on the armour looks so... Magical Girl transformation scene.

Re: Mecha anime from childhood

After doing some research on forums it may be Yamato Takeru. It's a fairly obscure series that aired on Saturday evenings in 1994, and a number of people remember watching it as kids. The main character is imprisoned in a cage by the Village Elders in the first episode for his rambunctious behavior...

Re: Development of the Biosensor and Psycommu

Evolve../9 is supposed to be the sequel to Green Divers(inspired by the space launched scene of Amuro's Zeta), Evolve Material seems to hint that the creator wanted it to be as free as possible while still maintain some sense or relation to the canon and at best it is a side story. Reading Evolve Ma...

Re: What defines Mass Production?

That makes sense as most of the wars are kinda smaller afterwards (though the Gryps Conflict seems like it would be bigger). Is there any info on the MS to Ship/Ship numbers in the Zanscare war? I remember reading somewhere it was considered the biggest war since the OYW. There was none. As you can...

Re: Development of the Biosensor and Psycommu

How canon is EVOLVE ? EVOLVE 's 9th episode features the QRX-006 Geminus and MSZ-006-P2/3C Red Zeta both had a new type of psycommu (the Red Zeta's being called a Psyco Neutralizer) that allowed direct control over the Mobile Suit/Armor using the pilot's thoughts alone. Wasn't Evolve 9 considered a...

Re: What defines Mass Production?

Really when you look at it the scale of many UC wars should be relatively the same. They often involve a faction fighting against the Earth Government, over a period of weeks or months across several battlegrounds. They are often somewhat evenly match in terms of soldiers, if not technology. For in...

Re: What defines Mass Production?

Numbers that got in my head immediately are: MS-06: ~8000 (MG Manual? can't remember and the print on Dalong is too small[don't want to read]) MS-09: ~6000 (MG manual? same as above) MS-14: ~200 RGM-79: 42(early and for use on ground)+288(late) (MG maunal, has since been rejected by Gundam Officials...

Re: Gundam General Audience?

The reason OVAs are more detailed in facial features ,mecha and overall is because they have a higher budget and more time to work on it(generally). Unlike TV anime, which has to meet a weekly schedule, OVA has the luxury to be made with more time per episode. Also, an analogy is that TV anime is ma...

Re: Gundam General Audience?

read in a few places "Otaku" as a term originated in Macross, which came from terms used around Studio Nue. Not "Originated" in Macross but more like made famous by Macross. Its creators were using the term before the show and only used it in the show in a pretty minor instance. The term turned pre...

Re: Gundam General Audience?

Otaku, back in the 70's did not carry negativity as it was just an honorific used among, well, otakus. FG was towards the end of that period but still well within it. So even if it is targeted towards otakus, it shouldn't be in a negative sense.(Foreign usage of the word without the later negativity...

Re: What defines Mass Production?

Then it comes to the point where whether the faction have the means to mass produce the unit or not. Did they design the production line? Can them mass produce every part of the machine sustainably? For example, The J-20 is "supposed" to be a mass production unit. However, PRC does not have the abil...

Re: What defines Mass Production?

So what leads to unit being labeled mass produced? Does their need to be several dozen/hundred? Are they less specialized? What is the difference between mass and limited production? Whatever they like to label it as. RX-79[G] was produced in likely 2 dozens and RGM-79[G] maybe 40 or so. Compared t...

Re: SENTINEL: DEBUNKED

Also it's worth noting that the Nu Gundam has a variant in the books which depending on the illustration is more in line with the regular tri color design(the Redesigned Hi-ν Gundam is in Blue and White over the original Purple and White to be a bit more like the Gundam MK II). Well, the MG Ver. Ka...

Re: Hair Colors in Anime

It's a fair bit older than this, but the title most people would probably point to as establishing unnatural hair colors in the mainstream would be 1978's Urusei Yatsura , where the alien oni Princess Lum had vibrant green hair. Barely relevant, but Urusei Yatsura is going to have a new anime. http...

Re: SENTINEL: DEBUNKED

Interesting that Bandai didn't want two competing toy lines at once: yet by the nineties they had multiple different Gundam anime projects (and presumed toylines) running concurrently(ie F91 and Stardust Memory came out within two months of each other while 08th MS Team ran through Gundam X, Endles...

Re: SENTINEL: DEBUNKED

Sigh, let's see what we can agree on first. What is presented from MG point of view: 1) Bandai approached MG for a collaboration project for "The Strongest Gundam" 2) Supreme and Superior both didn't go through for registration process at the time. 3) Despite MG did some work(lots of it) Bandai put...

Re: SENTINEL: DEBUNKED

Completely understandable, I still can't remember if it is Supreme or Superior without looking at the sources. Oh I always thought it was the Superior Gundam, I didn't know about the Supreme (スブリーム.ガンダム) part. Neat. Yeah it became Superior Gundam, for whatever reason unknown to Model Graphix that S...
