Re: Gundam Age Original Plan?

What I heard is that it was originally just games but then they turned it into dual projects with anime working alongside the games.

Re: Mobile Suits Scaling

We already have SD Gundam.

Speaking of which, after went back to old Brave Series, I can't help but noticed that the setup of SD Gundam Force is very similar. Maybe they can try that concept again, just being less SD Gundam and more of J-Decker.

Re: Hi-Zack and psychological warfare

It's kinda has other effect too. Supposedly Axis engineers start working on the Zaku III only because they're angry at Hi-Zakck and Marasai being Zaku II's successors.

Re: Even if Super Sentai and Power Rangers are NOT mecha series, just superhero shows with some mecha elements

The five-man band and how it could translate into a non-combining real robot team, as well as group dynamics in a mecha anime or tokusatsu series. Ugh... please, PLEASE stop trying to make everything fit into the context of TV Tropes. Fat chance, man. TV Tropes itself is a wiki about categorizing t...

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

The only thing that I have a problem with is the blatant Trayage ad that was placed in for no good reason. I know they tried to make it look cool, but the whole thing is just so out of place and sudden that it makes little sense to be put in there. My beef is that they should give it to Load Astray...

Re: Even if Super Sentai and Power Rangers are NOT mecha series, just superhero shows with some mecha elements

You mesn tokusatsu, Super Sentai is a name of specific franchise. Well, every Super Sentai series have at least some episodes focus on the mecha (minus the first two, obviously), and some actually have them as the center of overall plot. That being said, as someone who saw more than dozen of them (i...

If so, then I guess we'll never get to see Seere beyond one silhouette.

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

Ah, epic ending. Seriously, with all important stuff occurred, now I feel that GBD-R is the real meat while GBD is simply overly-long prologue for set up the scene. Gunpanzer look awesome! And the last scene is both touching and funny at the same time. Heck, I don't think any non-Build series ever d...

Re: [UC Gundam] Civilian Ships/Carriers?

Bladewood from Silhouette Formular 91 is Anaheim's. The mega particle cannons on the ship are hidden in the cargo, so they might be illegal too.

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

#25 The battle isn't as tense as rescuing Masaki, but still fun to watch. I heard that Obari direct the whole battle in this episode by himself, and I can see why, only him can pull gattai scene and make my inner child screaming. Is it just me, or GBD:R actually utilize returning characters from GBD...

Re: What kind of education does a mecha engineer need?

Really, I think that's another one of those questions where the answer varies heavily depending on the series. Just to illustrate, the first three Braves Series (as well as the unmade ninth, although that one use toy robot instead) have mundane vehicles changed into transformable/combinable ones af...

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

Not as epic as I thought, but it's like the training mission from S1.

On the other hand, I'm very glad that Riku fight more like when he used the 00 Ace (that's, relies on speed and his mad reflex) than when he used the 00 Sky (flashy super move). This is exatly how I thought it should be.

Another breather episode, although it set up the big event next.

Re: RB79 Ball Variants and Successors

I remember how Ball Type K in 08th actually withstand Zaku machine gun, and with MSV-R has Ball Type F that's supposed to fix its reputation as metal coffin (faster, better armor, probably bigger gun too?), I think someone in-universe believe in the thing's potential. Back to topic for OP (BTW, do y...

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

Wow. It's sometime since we have such intense battle, 3-ways battle even.

The way Hiroto defeat Seltsam is very reminiscent of Gaogaigar's Hammer Hell and Heaven. Impale the target with drill/nail then tear the arm/core off. Heck, Tertium even become particle of light upon defeated!

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

Obari really know his target audiences :) . I guess the reason he has to drop it is because it has to be done throughout the series and that would be extra burden for animators.

Yes, it's sometime since Sunrise able to pull this level of audience punching.

Phantom got animated!

Is it just me, or Seltsam actually look cooler?
