Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Anime Thread Mk I

In fact, the novels probably have the best ending for U.C. so far: the EF ends up crippled and Zeon wins the war; Gihren seems to be the winner, but Kycillia kills him and then Char "accidentally" kills her, thus being the one left in charge of Side 3. Doesn't Char drop Luna II on to Earth in those...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Honestly thinking about it the only Macross show I haven't gotten all the way through was the original just because I couldn't muster effort to get through the last 9 episodes.

Re: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Season 4 will be moving to the 10 pm timeslot. People are theorizing that the new ABC CEO is trying to kill the show so next season might be the last. Overall I liked season 3 okay, but I didn't quite feel so enthused about it as with previous seasons. Might be because Gotham as been so damn good r...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

So, Delta's given us aquatic mer-people, now cat-people. What's next? Lizard people? Bird people? Macross seems to be going kind of Star Treky. Always was. Hell, there a bunch of overt references to Star Trek thrown in a easter eggs in the original series, like onscreen display text and printouts t...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Re: 0096 Anime Thread Mk I

Which when you think about just seems to send the message of peace through superior firepower is kind of creepy. Not really, as the time to go for a nonviolent resolution is usually not when violence is already being actively done. By then, it's usually better to wait for the violence to cease firs...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Anime Thread Mk I

Not to mention that over years the whole ethnical cleansing could even come under debate given that more and more recent works point towards Zeon not widely using weapons of mass destruction as we were originally told. Which is Zeon fanboy rectconting and comes off as an anime fanboy version of his...

Heh, Sharon got BTFO. Yeah, being left off the greatest hits list like that is a bit of a blow, though one can't entirely blame the Sisterhood for wanting her not included in history. I wonder if there is a little embarrassment that in the Macross future the dark AI overlord there nearly took over ...

Re: Zeta Gundam: Why is it so great?

But I still disapproved of Char's actions throughout CCA, especially his manipulation of Quess...all because, when it comes down to it, he's still butthurt that Amuro kicked his shiny pink rear-end in combat 14 years earlier. It's petty and infantile, as motivations go. And fits with Zeon's decline...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Anime Thread Mk I

Might be a little off-topic, if so, I apologize. I might be forgetting something, but as far as I can remember, this series is the first time we've seen lots of ruined colonies in the same time period as the OYW. Sure, we've seen them in later series, but seeing Zeon snipers camped out in the wreck...

I'm not sure how crazy Daikun could have been. He was pretty spot on about Newtype's existing and And wrong about it ending war, seeing as the last 2 or 3 wars in the UC timeline were started by Newtypes. So Newtypes basically changed nothing. his being used as a sacrifice He died so the Zabis coul...
