Re: Macross II Soundtrack Question

Track 24 on OST II, "Last Defense Game". - Your friendly neighborhood Macross II nut. THANKS Seto! Now I know which CD to track down. Given the relative inactivity of this side of the forum and the shall we say "iffy" reputation Macross II has gotten over the years, I was concerned no one would be ...

Macross II Soundtrack Question

Hey, I was wondering if anyone knows which soundtrack (OST 1 or OST 2) of Macross II has the song that plays in OVA Part 5 when Nexx is going all out in Metal Siren to try to stop the Marduk from advancing. It starts at about 13:18 in the episode. It has punchy brass and piano with an eventual backi...

Re: Ep. 117: Metroid

The Metroid topic was really up my alley. Really cool to hear you guys go through it. I'm only up to the part where you talk about Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, but I want to just share and comment on what's been said so far, and I'll come back later for the rest... I've played every game extensively...

Re: Fafner THE BEYOND announced

I am just now watching Exodus. I hope it turns out better than you guys say it will. And even if it doesn't, I still welcome the news. I liked the other entries in this franchise. Also, I think it is a shame that every season there are fewer and fewer mecha anime being produced. I think the up comi...

Re: Fafner THE BEYOND announced

Given the arguably open ending of Exodus (lackluster as it was IMO, but that's a separate discussion), I'm not terribly surprised either that we're seeing more from that franchise. I am a little surprised that we're hearing back on it already, but it has been a while since Exodus ended so perhaps I...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

I think my post must have been misunderstood. As Amion expressed, I wasn't sad to see the Zabi family go or disappointed in their existence within the story--they're actually one of the hallmarks of 0079, as Zeonista extrapolated--I was just concerned about the loss of human subtleties there, and so...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

I don't appreciate Kycilia's more ruthless interpretation, then. One of the best things about the Zabis to me was how mostly human they were. Right now, only poor Dozzle has escaped with any inkling of humanity in tact. (Ignoring Garma, who gets it) Kycilia's talk with Char indicated she had a soft...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Thanks for the replies, Zeonista! I just remembered something else that has me curious. It looks like Kycilia Zabi's age has been changed. She's 24 in 0079 according to Mark Simmon's guide book from the early 2000s. The Origin anime starts its main story in 0068, which would put her at 11, which she...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Watched episodes 1-3. This is a fantastic series, and I do believe it really enhances the original 0079 series. It's a lot better than Iron-Blooded Orphans, IMO, and better than Unicorn, as well, in terms of how it uses its time and how it sets a stage. There are points where this series' tone goes ...

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

Watched Episodes 15-16 of IBO Season 1 on Toonami. Episode 15 was so-so, but Episode 16 was probably about as close to "above average" or "excellent" that this series has gotten in a long time. While the Fumitan situation got laid on almost too thick at points, the overall execution of the episode's...

Re: GundamInfo uploaded the 0079 Trilogy on Youtube

As I understand it, the 0079 compilation movies were actually made a very short time after the series originally aired, so there wouldn't be a really obvious visible difference between old and new footage the way there was with the Zeta ANT movies. EDIT: Yeah, a quick online search tells me the ser...

Re: GundamInfo uploaded the 0079 Trilogy on Youtube

I watched Part 3, which was the only one I hadn't seen. (Saw the first two back in the early 2000s before the TV series aired in North America). I have to say, despite some rushed elements, it was really good. I wish there was a comprehensive list about the changes between the TV and Movie versions,...

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

Thought I'd report in regarding my thoughts after Episodes 9-14 on Toonami. As promised by members of this forum, this stretch was pretty much a slog. Overall, the series went from average with shades of above average to just plain mediocre in my opinion. I can see that, in a way, they're trying to ...

I'm nearing the end of what's been a mixed bag to say the least, and I'm not seeing how a Unicorn 2 would be interesting. I am surprised to hear there are some...

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

Question: How old are the characters in this series? I know there are a few different classes within Tekkadan. One of the characters essentially said he was 13 in the latest episode to air on Toonami, if I heard right. How old are Orga and Biscuit? I presume they're in their late teens, if not earl...
