Re: Create the next Gundam TV Series

that would therefore fulfill every point on my wishlist, because it would warp around from the bad end of the spectrum to the good end, and thus it would not suck go ahead, bring on Plan 9 From Outer Space Ver Gundam checkmate And now I'm imagining that Aeolia Schenberg's plans actually included a ...

Re: SF Debris

I've been following SFDebris since… oh, wow, back when he only had like ten videos on YouTube. Dang, that was a long time ago. I love his work, and it's a lot of fun to listen to him. Especially because he has substance to his stuff, and isn't just trying to be funny. Like his bit about why the scen...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-8

They could do a sequel that addresses the weird time travel angle Treasure Star brought in. Seriously, I don't think even the Gundam standard on 'canon' is flexible enough for that sidestory. Wait, what? Time travel? I assume this is one of the side-stories, because I think this is the first time I...

I don't even know what that means. :| I just did not care for the first three movies and only found Last Crusade likeable out of them.
Contrarian means being deliberately the opposite of what everyone else is saying or doing.

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-8

Personally, I put Temple of Doom as my second favorite of the three Indy movies I've seen (Crusade, Temple, Raiders for those curious, and it's not that I don't like Raiders, it's that I like Crusade and Temple more), so I have yet to see a "bad" Indy movie. On topic, I agree with the air of disappo...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-8

On a side note the AGE game actually gives more context to Zanald's little betrayal, as it shows him hiding behind some curtains listening in as Ezelcant spells out the Eden project to Zeheart. How does a guy that damn huge hide behind CURTAINS? What the hell size curtains are those? Easy: any time...

Re: Gundam cliches you could do without?

The only thing I begrudge the Toonami run for is giving us people who will insist on using the dub alterations and errors. Are there fans who insist on the dub names? I remember back when G Gundam was first airing in the US and some newly-minted fans used the dub names because they didn't know abou...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-8

Dudes, lets go straight to the most reasonable original of word Vegan. Ezelcant is really Vega, whom known as M.Bison in the west. That would explan his brainwashing ability. So, does that mean that Ezelcant will come back from the dead, and then Kio will kill him by throwing him into Second Moon a...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-8

The word "Vegan" already has a very common English-language meaning. Could you really keep a straight face if the Earth Sphere spent 49 episodes at war with hardcore vegetarians? -- Mark No, but it would've made the show a lot more entertaining and coherent. And all the mobile suit names would be v...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-8

I think my feelings towards AGE at this point could best be described as "disappointed." This show had the potential to be a true epic spanning the generations as it explores what war does to a society as it drags on and on, and one family at the heart of it all, and it kind of does that but it's no...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Mecha Thread Third Generation

Oh snap, I forgot all about the windmill and the crab. HOWEVER! The Windmill had an awesome strategy at first xD And I agree, I don't think their mobile suits really would be any use at all in helping build/repair, so I am a bit surprised. I know they definitely aren't building those by hand... The...

Eh, I don't find it too bad. I like to think of it as what happens when the Vagan create a Ball mobile pod xD Still, I think everything is better than the Matador Gundam. Even the Zakrello and the Bigro and the Gaga and all that. They all are wonderful compared to the Matador. You think that Matado...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Mecha Thread Third Generation

You know, I've gotta give the Vagans credit. They've done something that for the longest time I didn't believe was possible: they've invented a mobile armor that makes the Zakrello look like a legitimate treat in comparison. My god, that makes the Gaga look dignified and sensible. :\ This is worse ...

Re: Gundam cliches you could do without?

Not sure if it counts as a "cliche", but I'm tired of One Year War stories. There's basically nothing left to explore in that era, and Zeta and beyond are far more interesting. Are you kidding? I'm sure there's a whole hour of material that can to be explored in some random town in the Philippines ...

The way Uso's mother was killed by the wheel of that battleship was horrific. I wonder if there will ever be a Gundam TV series with deaths as gruesome as that again. Well, Gundam SEED did humans saturated with microwave radiation and popping like meat balloons. That was quite shocking the first ti...

I will say, for something... so unorthodox in Gundam, when I started holding AGE to a slightly different standard than I do for other series, I am actually loving the Vagan suit designs. They are growing on me, especially the Khronos. Even Sid is actually kinda cool looking. I'm actually a big fan ...

Re: Gundam SEED HD Remaster airs Winter 2011

I have to say, though, the Perfect Strike is probably the most spectacularly ugly Gundam I've ever seen. I can't stand Destiny's design, and this is basically just that except bulkier and without the beam saberangs. I used to call Destiny the Clusterf*ck Gundam, but Perfect Strike has supplanted th...
