Re: Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Re: 0096

Given the amount of spoilers in both the OP and ED, as well as the first few minutes of the episode, I get the impression this is aimed at people who have already seen the OVAs. I'm going to chalk the OP and ED to be more lazy editing than "intending for second time viewers." With the reused scenes...

Re: Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Re: 0096

So...we gonna make this the new "official" Unicorn thread? Anyway, first episode is up on both Crunchyroll and Daisuk and the release schedule is every Saturday at 3:30 PST. Both have the Sub and Dub. Impressions So not too surprisingly, the first episode is pretty much the first 20 minutes of the f...

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

I'm yet to make up my mind on whether I want a lengthy time-skip or not. A brief one would be the most likely, as we still have a lot of development still to be had for a lot of the cast. On the other hand, a lengthy skip would provide interesting perspective. Depends on what we consider "long". Lo...

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

Finally got around to watching the episode and overall its a solid episode and ending to the first season. Even if this was the end it would have been ok as far as gundam endings go. So, my thoughts - Fights were a little bit on the anti climatic side. As soon as Mika "mastered" the katana the battl...

Re: Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Re: 0096

I was expecting this to succeed IBO's time slot on MBS every Sunday afternoon~evening but apparently it will air at 7 in the morning on a Sunday on TV Asahi just before the current Super Sentai Show Zyuohger. A bit odd considering that slot is mostly for children-oriented anime. That's because Unic...

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

It makes a lot of sense for all except the Kimaris, as its pilot was a founding member of the Seven Stars if I recall correctly. I don't think that the Baduings could keep the Gundam as a symbol of their family if their great grand father was fused to it Why not? Couldn't they just just remove the ...

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

So Mcgillis unmasked himself to Gaelio. Does this mean he's going to kill Gaelio or convince him to join him? Probably kill him considering how heartlessly he treated Carta, but Gaelio did seem sympathetic when Mcgillis expressed displeasure in the corrupt system. Why urge Gaelio to make Ein into F...

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

So are they a harem? Or is it all an act to keep them safe? Both, it would seem At the very least, Amida, Lafter and Azee are in a relationship with Naze. It's obvious that Amida is in a relationship with Naze, and there's dialogue throughout the show that strongly suggests Lafter is also in a rela...

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

Hopefully we do get a second season, though if not then I think Sunrise should stay clear of any new gundam projects until the 40th anniversary.

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 ...

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

Damn, I start to think that the only reason they spare Takagi back then despite all death flags was to make we lets our guard down. Pretty much this. I was really hoping that all of these death flags would just end up being a red herring for the purpose of making us sweat bullets. Hell, I was in de...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Anime Thread Mk I

We've heard plenty of characters go on about 'buh-buh-buh-but we were fighting for spacenoid independence! The Federation is corrupt!' Oh, there's no doubt about the Federation being corrupt, but just once I would love to hear a character in a Gundam show reply to that with 'yeah well they didn't m...

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

I'll wait for some official announcement over the internet before I start celebrating.

However, if it is true then it would explain the description for IBO in Daisuki's most recent newsletter.

"Don't miss the surge of excitement as we approach the climax of the first half!"

Re: Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Re: 0096

Ok you're right I went back and looked at the battle and of the three we see get hit on screen none of them were destroyed though its hard to tell if the Garencieres team is doing it on purpose like Angelo and Full Frontal in episode 6. If they are doing it on purpose then maybe its so that the blac...

Re: Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Re: 0096

In the 5th OVA the Garencieres team doesn't destroy any Ankushas either. Nope, the Garencieres team definitely destroyed some of those Ankushas. And as zetatype pointed out, neither does Riddhe kills any of the Nahel Argama's forces, despite clearly being set on killing Banagher. Because Riddhe's b...
