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

I seriously thought Takaki was gonna bite the dust there until Mika's timely arrival. Though he's not out of the woods yet. Well, he and blondy raised a lot of flags in a couple of minutes of dialog. I was surprised to see Barbatos. I thought they were going to cut the episode when the third mecha ...

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

For me, while I recognise and appreciate how well constructed it is (especially compared to the mess that is G-Reco) nothing about it has really gotten my blood pumping yet. When 00 was airing I couldn't wait for the next episode, but with this show nothing has me wishing it was Sunday already. Wel...

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

I'm rather interested by the glimpse we get of Barbatos in the preview, in which it looks like it's been stripped down to its frame. At least, the head has. As for the episode itself, it was mostly setup, which is fine by me. Not much to say, although I LMFAO when Naze flicked Orga in the head and ...

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

I'm eager to see the MAN RODI and GUSION on this series. Those are quite odd mobile suits. I'm wondering if they made the mass produced MAN RODI based on the GUSION, or they refurbished a Gundam Frame using spare parts form the MAN RODI? They are quite similar looking to suggest a relationship

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

What I liked from this episode is that the battle turned costly for Tekkadan. They just simply can't outsmart or outbattle everyone out there. If not for the hijack, they would have lost pretty much their MS squat. Quite the gambit from Orga; btw did anybody suspected a Macross attack from the Isaba...

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

So the moon was messed up, eh? Does this mean the Calamity War was really the incident with the moon in Aldnoah Zero? :P Yeah I though the same thing. But I don't think the moon status is going to be more than backgroun flavor though; with 24 episodes we won't be getting a moon arch imho. I'm hopin...

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

It seems like a bit of an oversight that Aki's Graze didn't have an Alaya system, though. They've had a lot of time to work on that, given how quickly they managed to install one in the Barbatos. I was worried for the inverse thing: to have this merry band of orphans being able to retro-fit the Ala...

Laminated bullet proof paint? That's way to awesome to be true? If ahab waves are so important why they haven't mentioned on the anime? A real honest reference to their properties

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

Alaya Vijnana is going to be the key tech here; so far it has received more emphasis that the Ahab reactors. What is bottering me is why Mika had three times the surgery? To have tri-core spacial analysis prowness? As for the grazes, nice that at least for one series mass-production doesn't mean can...

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

Well, the episode is starting with the Engrish again... this time with Gandam appearing on the post boot-up screen for the OS. Plus, they're still going with Kuderia for her name, which makes me wonder if that really is supposed to be the spelling and they're just utilizing some weird one for the s...

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

- ... - I get that opening up the Graze's head and exposing the whole camera is probably useful in terms of getting more sensor input (with the tradeoff of more vulnerability) but when you're facing an opponent you already substantially outclass, you're just showing off. ... Thought it was a cannon...

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

Also they managed to get the Gundam from sitting on its duff power source to operational mobile suit quite quickly. Kinda surprised me in that sense. Actually, I thought it would've happened sooner, around the time when that guy (who ended up dying later on anyway) first needed help. magnetic coati...

And is it me or am I getting a secret ninja vibe from Kudelia's assistant? I mean she was dressed in .3 seconds when the attack happened... Lol, she would be like that maid girl from Code Geass! Maybe Sunrise wants to start a maid-ninja trope since there is no maskedman in sight on this show? I lik...

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

Be real, if we're going to pick Sunrise's recent smash hit then it's undoubtable Love Live! If we want Sunrise to wait a bit between Gundam, THAT would be their choice instead of Valvrave. (and Gintama , which AFAIK totally miss in western but extremely popular in Japan and here) Sorry I only see m...

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

I'm gonna out on a limb and say the boys pilot shirtless, because (maybe) the scenes they're shirtless in are just mock battles and training. Or the mobile workers have no AC? I think it'd be perfectly easy to develop a pilot suit that could work with the enhancements they have on their back. Const...

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

I think Gundam is becoming too heavy to be lifted by any new series. It has way too much background, too much heritage. Maybe Sunrise should wait a bit and keep throwing stuff to the wall like Valvrave and Aldonoah Zero to see what sticks. Or else the problem, is that Japan is moving away for dramat...

Re: Xeku Eins and the Titans suits

Thank you guys for the bunch of ideas expressed. It seems very unlike that there is a linkage between the xeku and other feddies suits. Certainly it is a basic model, and as per its profile it is powerful not by the use of new tech but by the refining of existing know-how. Now, how does the xeku ein...

Xeku Eins and the Titans suits

I was wondering if there any relationship between the Xeku Eins of New Desides and the Titan's Marasai and HiZack. The three of them are better than average Feddie suits, they are far too rounded to be descendant of the GM and they all have zeonistic mono eyes - far too suspicious. Maybe they are al...
