Re: Aldnoah Zero Thread

Good episode, moves being made all over the place. I felt that Inaho vs Slaine draws more parallels from Yang Wen Li vs Reinhard, but this time there is a bit of a love triangle involved. Of course, there is also the magical eye of Lelouch and the honourary citizen knight from Suzaku, Oh I REALLY wa...

Re: Aldnoah Zero Thread

I just skimmed episode 2 of S1 and the series' wiki, and discovered there are at least three Orbital Knights from Season 1 that are MIA. There locations appeared to be in Beijing, Maputo, and New Orleans. They include a blue fish-looking mecha that has yellow energy tentacles, a red tank-like mecha...

That last episode had one of the worst showings of Gundam Spiegel/Shadow Gundam I have seen.

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk II

Barara did a MS ballet-fu with her Mack Knife two episodes ago I think. And she snapped off a Grimoire's head with the Mack Knife's thighs and caused it to go all 'splooey. That does sound like something I've seen in this show, must have not even noticed it was her. She did get a decent scene in th...

- At his point I think we will not see a woman look like a badass pilot in a mobile suit in this series. They may be commanders, leaders and have moments of badass feats outside of mobile suits but once they get inside they will make critical mistakes, get over powered or just made to look like chu...

Re: Aldnoah Zero Thread

Give props to the writing staff, I hated that character at first, but they really did build him up to someone I think I may miss going forward. Very few anime or fictional villains in general actually grow on you while always maintaining the same characterization and constantly doing villainous stuf...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk II

Not going to lie, I am a bit lost with who is who among the Towasanga factions at this point. I do know the following... - that Cumpa is obviously evil - the Megafauna must have the most relaxed prisoner policies I've seen in fiction to this point with how quickly and easily they give weapons of mas...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk II

The ugly truth: he's got a split personality. That, or he's realized that he's in an anime and that he could feasibly form a harem if he plays his cards right by the end of the series. More likely he thinks everyone is dumb enough to buy the mask and the code name or knows that no one (outside of M...

I figure it is the same thing emotional damper thing Shaw has on the CBS show Person of Interest, whether they say it out right or not doesn't really bother me. He does what most people could do, if they were extremely observant of their enemies, knew enough about tactics, science and have main char...

Nice glancing battle but would have liked to have seen more, but I guess it is too early for that.

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk II

Feel for Bellri, although instead of whining about Aida being his sister, I'd figure he'd be more pissed at his mother not being his real mother and apparently lying to him, since he said his mom specifically said she deleted all traces of his non-existent pops. But oh well, good fight but everytime...

Re: Mech Talks! Ep. 002 - Henshin-A-Go-Go-Baby!

Despite its age, I personally still recommend Kamen Rider Kuuga as a great starter show, if only for its action and set pieces.

New OP will debut tomorrow PLEASE don't let it be consisted of stock footage. But of course it would consist of mainly stock footage. Sadly stuff we've already seen and a heavy emphasis on Aida. New episode has promise but I can see why some people are confused by the story. We have multiple factio...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk II

Yeah, aside from some fairly impressive showings in mecha battle (all losses or draws since after his first intro episode) and moments of strategic awareness here and there he hasn't lived up to the title "Genius" as often as it is thrown out there. He seems smarter then his father but he really wou...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk II

I am starting to doubt Klim's genius claim, after all the stealth knocks Mask and circumstances in general put on it in the last episode. But I am glad he did the title drop.

I don't think this is a spoiler but I will put it in quotes anyway. So is that disruptive hologram/light shadow or whatever a part of the G-Self or is that another feature of the space backpack? I had thought that was the main gimmick of that big unyielding backpack he used while his mom was coming ...

Re: Build Fighters Try or Reconguista In G- Which do you pre

While I prefer Reconguista, I will also come to Try's defense in saying at least it references G Gundam and had a better showing for the Destiny Gundam in its final fight then SEED Destiny did.

Yeah, I want to see the Wuxia's commander again, he has promise to be an entertaining foe.

But I have to wonder, does ANYONE know that Dellensen is dead? And if so why is no one talking about it?

Re: Build Fighters Try or Reconguista In G- Which do you pre

G-Reco but I feel more at home with this style of story telling and the desire to learn more of what is going on or how it will happen. Also until recently I binged watched the first few episodes until last week when I decided to try to keep up with it weekly going forward when I can. So maybe I did...
