Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Strictly speaking this is more a mech than an anime comment per se, but I am exceedingly curious about the Pharact, myself. The enormous, articulated heels look to me to actually be more the back panels of the leg armor, which is on a joint for some reason. Additionally, those six "eyes" o...

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

Exactly. In the third variant, the 0-Raiser is basically dismantled and its support systems are installed in the 00 itself via a modified backpack and the new binders, plus the increased size and number of control antennae - with a Haro docking port being added to the cockpit. Red Haro completely ta...

Re: The Protection conferred by Phase Shift Armor

I don't think so, because the Providence's shield is the same color regardless of whether its Phase Shift is active or not. Looking at this screenshot , in which its Phase Shift is active , the shield is the same light gray as the rest of the body. But looking at it pre-deployment like in this scree...

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

I went back to try to recover what I could. What I was able to find, I edited the links. In the case of some (like the IBO stuff), the links are dead because I did newer versions of the same design, in which case I usually left a note to the page where they updated version was posted as I was unable...

Oh, cool. Dark Mode definitely looks better. Hopefully this feature sticks around.
On another note, I cleared cache/cookies a second time and this time it seems to have fixed the login issue I was having, so that's nice too.

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch from Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

The teaser visual depicts the protagonist of the series and Gundam Aerial, the protagonist’s Mobile Suit. Oh YES!!! FINALLY, we have a female Gundam pilot as the main protagonist. I was already curious to see this, but now I really can't wait. As for the mech designs...I'm liking the Gundams. Very ...

I just hope this one doesn't go off the rails, narratively speaking, the way the 0083 manga adaptation did.

Re: Gundam General Audience?

To add on to what Mafty said about the more "realistic" relative appearance of the late-80s-to-early-90s OVAs especially with regards to hair colors, the same holds true with 0080. Off the top of my head, I cannot remember any single character in 0080 that didn't have a more or less normal...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Witch from Mercury Anime Thread Mk I

Good to know, thanks.
So based on what PowerdGNFlag mentioned, if we don't start seeing more information around February, it's a pretty safe bet to assume an October release date then?

Re: Color of Beam Sabers

The ELS-assimilated mobile suits in the 00 movie and the Eldora Army units in Re:Rise also had a darker purple color that I don't think we've seen very often.

Re: Practicality of Seatbelts in Zero Gravity

Squatting will also be fun as the cockpit will sudden drop down and leaving the pilot in mid air. If that squat is for a jump following it and in a fight you cannot wait to fall on the ground before the jump, the pilot will have to extend the body in mid air, just to have the floor of the cockpit n...

The first movie doesn't change Bogue's characterization at all... he's the most hateful member of the Knights, and for a good reason given that... ... his entire family were killed by Hayate's father when he dropped that dimensional warhead on Carlisle. That just makes him ending up in Delta Squad ...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Huh. Started rewatching the series out of curiosity, and out of that lot, I honestly would've pegged him as the least likely to ever be willing to work with Delta Squad.
Guess the movie must be changing stuff there.

Thanks.
