Re: The Official Macross Delta Mecha Thread Mk I

(...) Windermere was discovered in 2027 by Megaroad-04, and by 2037 the average fleet strength of an emigrant world was 73 ships. Emigrant worlds have the means to build their own new warships for their own defense, and many fleets possess the means as well without even needing a planet. The fleet ...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk

Gaelio and McGillis' remarks about Alaya-Vijnana and the Gundam Frames have got me thinking about Graze Ein's Alaya-Vijnana System. Gaelio called Ein's AV system as "Alaya-Vijnana's true form" and denounced Mika and co. as "fakes". We all know that the Gundam Frames were all made to take advantage ...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

The appearance of Gringere at the Earth Battlefield and McGillis discarding his mask make sense only if we are close to the final episode and they need closure for his and Gaelio's arch. Otherwise it's just random Char clone behavior that has plagued so many other Gundam series. As for Tekkadan acti...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk

I don't know; McGillis sais that Gjallarhorn continued its research into man-machine interfaces even after the Calamity War. I think that Graze Eins is actually the most modern Graze. Probably the scientist involved were impatiently waiting for someone like Eins to power-up this new monster of metal...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

This is a queer episode for a Gundam series. Mika was very unlike a traditional Gundam pilot going bersek like that at a proposal of a duel. His brutality is shocking even for someone with his background. Poor Carta didn't deserve to go like this, sure she was a fool by thinking she could outfight t...

@Balofo: I think I read somewhere that they are pile drivers -I bet they will do a great deal of damage!
The thing I'm most curious are the shoulders: they seem to hide something. Otherwise why they are so big? Some pop-up gun perhaps?

That's the thing Amion we haven't heard anything from a big time source. I bet that at this stage we knew 00 would get a second spin, although the story warrants, I think that I might prefer Sunrise doing something else because this crew hasn't taken advantage of the time they had -they weren't able...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk

So, this might be answered somewhere else that I missed, but in episode 17, when watching the Barbatos battle the Kimaris, McGillis says something along the lines of he was amazed that two of the Gjallarhorn machines that ended the Calamity War would ever fight each other. This obviously seems to s...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

That moment between Mika and Orga felt like a villainous moment to be sure, it even came with lightning. :lol: That... somehow made it less cliche for me and more frightening, considering the one asking how many people he has to kill is just a kid. Mika sure knows how to be creepy in a frightening ...

And I thought that the letter issue was settle... We now have a Carta preview for a combat loaded episode. Cool. I suppose we won't be seeing gali gali for a while, not until ein is turned into his mechanical henchman -which means he will be transformed into a mindless drone. As for Tekkadan, they a...

Deacon. It's not cliche, its a Gundam requirement a la masked dude. I loved this episode except the Gundam duel. As several of you commented, Tekkadan entrances was sublime. Their use of the chaff was impressive - I kind of think it was McGillis idea- but ramming the space station was sublime. It wa...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Mecha Thread Mk

I was surprised by the teal grazes. Usually such an ornate unit is one of kind. Seem them do the attack on formation was surprising, kind of reminded me of the Black Stars. Sadly it didn't amount to anything. It was just me, or Ein's got a custom unit, a hand-me-down custom unit? what it was extra t...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

NOO OOO OOO! :( Overall a strong, impactful episode. As much as I love me some mech battles I appreciate that IBO doesn't stuff them in just to fill quota. Whether the series does well or not I think they went down the right path on that decision. Also, between the second opening and the model kit ...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

I don't know, but I'm growing less interested by the episode. Way too little MS combat. I think the spark of revolution might light a flare for this series to find its way to a cohesive ending, but not that we have a masked dude and a creepy lady we might get a shoehorned finale not unlike Age's. An...

MMP-80 VRS MMP-78 whic zaku gun would you prefer?

Suppose you are an experienced Zeon pilot -battle hardened but not yet an ace. You don't have enough pull to get a next gen machine, but at least you are assigned a Zaku II FZ. You get to choose your main gun: a new MMP-80 90MM or a old but proven MMP-78 120MM.

Which would you choose? Why?

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I loved the first ten minutes of the episode because of the serious world building and the last ten because of the Awesome Valkyrie combat. I can do with everything in between, particularly the battloids as backup dancers. Yuke. God forbid we get a left shark here...

Talking about Gusion, i wonder how much of its current look and abilities are due to the customisations it had received so far. Would be nice to see its original form. Seems like the MSV collection will be bristing with original items for this series. What has me more surprised by the Gusion is tha...

I'm with MythGarr. This has become the Gundam talk show. Too many people talking about feelings and very little fighting giant robot battles. I like my characters to have backstories and depthness but there has been too little action this last month. Overall we had like four or five mobile suit batt...
