Re: The Official Gundam 00 Season 1 Thread Mk I

I actually am in the exact same boat as Quiddity (it's a small boat, did you see me over here? ;) ). I finished up season one of 00 last week and I'm about five eps into season two. I've never watched SEED but I am very familiar with the characters and mecha thanks to SRW. I don't really like the me...

Re: Watching the UC series for the first time

Yeah, I really don't think I'll be watching Igloo. When I get through ZZ, the docket will be CCA, then probably Unicorn. I'm actually also watching 00 for the first time as I'm watching ZZ (I'm a few eps into the second season of 00). I met one of those old-guard types last year who sung high the pr...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

zerogradius, I agree with your points re: sexism, although I wouldn't discount the Beargguy III simply for being adorable. My wife and I loved both GBF shows (well before any cute mecha showed up), and Beargguy was a perfect gateway into gunpla - we built that kit as well as the Petitgguys together....

Re: Watching the UC series for the first time

Yeah, for as much as I came off not liking Kamille much, I wouldn't say that he killed without justification. He really did believe that he was fighting against an immoral enemy, and I don't think he was wrong at that. I want to add how much I like the mech design in Zeta. I like it a lot. Those 80s...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk III

There's a gag manga called Gundam-san, written and drawn by Tony Takezaki. In it he introduces a new Zeon "mobile suit", the Saku (that thing you see there), as well as the SM (which looks like a GM rendered as a box). The little things even showed up as joke characters in a couple of games in the ...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk III

- Haven't seen much chatter here about Fellini's sweet motorcycle (Gunbike?) for his Wing. Fitting since he's always seen riding around on a scooter. Does it replace bird mode, I wonder? Well, Wing Fenice can't use Bird Mode anyway due to its design, so in a sense the Meteor Hopper does indeed repl...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mk III

The previous two eps have both been utter joys. We were laughing throughout almost the entire Meat Bun episode, and both me and my wife were anxious to see what new tricks Sei had to show with his Star Build Strike. Given how awesome the Plavsky Gate was, I'm glad the following episode pointed out t...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mark II

Thoughts on the latest episodes: Ep. 8: My knowledge of G-Savior is very weak so I actually didn't even recognize the suit when it came out. But I'd been waiting for some G Gundam stuff to show up so I was very happy to see the Devil Gundam. Earlier I surmised that the ole Devil might be used as a "...

Re: Gunner's Gunpla

Thanks! I'm almost tempted to buy more G-Armor sets so I can have the components displayed in their different configurations at the same time.

But I've got a lot of other stuff I want to do before I get to that point. :)

Gunner's Gunpla

I've caught the Gunpla bug hard since I picked up an MG Shining Gundam at Dragon*Con this year, and I wanted to share some of the progress I've made in building since then. A bit of background on my gunpla experience: I did some plastic model building as a kid, mostly with Star Wars kits and a few a...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mark II

As soon as those mafia guys showed up, I said, "somehow this can be settled through gunpla battle." I almost thought I was going to be proven wrong when Reiji came out with his fists in the air. But I knew that Apasalus III had to show up somewhere, and it seems a fitting choice for a guy who superf...

Re: Watching the UC series for the first time

I think there's some worth to watching G-Saviour once you've gone through the UC stuff. It's really your best chance to judge if it works or not. Personally I think it's acceptable as a low budget sci-fi movie but sadly dissapointing as a UC Gundam one. G-Saviour is the SyFY Gundam movie. :twisted:...

Re: Watching the UC series for the first time

Brief update: I've slowed down on my UC watching, partially because Zeta isn't thrilling me and partially because I tend to watch episodes while I'm doing gunpla stuff and I've finished all the gunpla I had lying around. But I'm up to episode 17 and I think the Psyco Gundam is about to show up, and ...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Anime Thread Mark II

In the post-credits model ads, I noticed that both the Build Booster and the Amazing Booster have been shown, but a white cutout of 3 boosters seems to be slated for the series. Wondering if any have been spotted yet or if we're going to be seeing completely unique boosters (perhaps a close-combat ...

Been a while since I commented, so here are some stray thoughts on the last three episodes: Ep. 4: Loved the commentary on otaku/idol culture but I was sorta disappointed that it came at the expense of a potential female character; however, I could actually see Kirara redeeming herself in the future...

Re: Watching the UC series for the first time

This is a good thread M-308 Gunner! For me, MSG and its OYW setting are the bread and butter of UC. Once UC gets away from that, it seems to have problems of balancing characters and story in a consistent and/or compelling way, IMO. While not my favorite series by any means, MSG itself is a classic...
