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

243,721 is the exact number. Junius Seven was also an agricultural PLANT, though - I would assume that PLANTs in other cities could potentially have higher populations, but probably not by much.

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

Oh man, I'd completely forgotten about OKG. I saw a trailer for it years ago and meant to check it out, but I never did. Maybe I'll try to track that down and watch it next.

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

The interesting thing about Brain Powered these days to me is that it shared a very similar main setup/theme to the far more popular show Darling in the Franxx, focusing a lot on demographic collapse. I always felt this was just such an odd topic for Tomino to go with for a mecha show and he goes s...

Re: Which era of Gundam is your favorite?

I will never, ever get tired of After War Gundam X . It's one of the bleakest entries in terms of setting, being mostly set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland after mass colony drops annihilated something like 99.9% of the population of Earth, yet it is one of the most unabashedly optimistic series in ...

Re: Space Attack Carrier Gaw

I don't recall offhand ever seeing a Gau used in space - off the top of my head, the only appearances of the Gaw that I can recall always had it appearing on Earth.
And even on Earth, a top speed of Mach 7.4 is indeed completely ridiculous.

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

Okay, so I've recently been rewatching Gundam X for the nth time. And as I'm watching, I remembered an idea I had back when *Build Fighters* was airing. See, I rather liked the new backpack of the GX-9999 Gundam X Maoh, but I really didn't like its head design. And I kinda wondered how that backpack...

Re: Space Colonies and Water

We're talking about a society that has successfully colonized the Earth/Moon Lagrange Points and built cities on the moon. It's not entirely impossible that they would have a means of water purification more effective than what real-world technology is currently capable of.

Re: What's Next for Gundam Anime?

*Battlogue* was a mini-series of short episodes that were produced for GBF/T to, essentially, plug new model kits.
GBD is getting something similar.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Re:RISE Thread Mk I

OH. MY. FREAKING. GOD. Where do I even begin? This entire episode was absolutely glorious. I have been waiting literally the entire series for Hiroto to pull that stunt he did against Alus after the latter predictably hijacked the Earthree Armor, and I am entirely satisfied with the way he suddenly ...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

Okay, I just went back and took down the various Seltsam/Tertium recolors I'd done because I was working on another set of recolors(Gundam MkII colors) and noticed there were some flaws in the detailing that I went back and fixed. So I fixed up all that, and put together new pics of the various colo...

Re: Dark Duel's Shop-Fu and assorted artsy stuff

Yeah, the Tertium Advanced has new binders equipped to it. I like them - looks even more UC-like than its original equipment, and if anything fits it better. This first image I just slightly tweaked the colors because the blue on the original lineart was a little too bright IMO. The original Tertium...

Thanks. I think next I'm gonna do a set of matching recolors for the new Tertium Advanced. That thing looks awesome.

#25 The battle isn't as tense as rescuing Masaki, but still fun to watch.

Re: Mobile Suit construction timeline

The only thing like that I've personally ever seen was a timeline that used to be on the old GundamOfficial site way back in the day, which IIRC referred to "Project V", the development program for the Gundam/Guntank/Guncannon, as having started in April or May 0079. IIRC, the first episode of Mobil...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Divers Re:RISE Thread Mk I

Yeah, it was pretty cool. NGL though, as far as next episode, I'm much more looking forward to seeing Hiroto's old boss again than anything or anyone else.
