Re: [Ship Mystery] - Biscay-class Transport

Interesting suggestion, but if this is the site you're referring to, I'm afraid it mixes info actually published on books (or other reference material, also quite obscure... see for instance teh Garonne ship, directly taken from the Z Gundam gamebooks) with fan-made speculations, and as far as I ca...

[Ship Mystery] - Biscay-class Transport

Well, I'm stumped. In translating the latest Anaheim Laboratory Log, they mention a mysterious transport that is affiliated with Anaheim. This is none other than the Biscay -class (ビスケー級輸送艦). Googling around pulls up some interesting information on some Japanese sites (one which has an exhaustive li...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Just saw the latest PV put up online by GundamInfo and I'm perplexed by some things. I'm wondering if Sunrise ordered these new fangled "Engrish" renditions of preexisting terminology or not, but they don't sit well. "Space Strike Fleet" for 宇宙攻撃軍 and "Armored Assault Force" for 突撃機動軍 just seems to ...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Anime Thread Mk I

This episode seemed entirely too rushed... The detail of the manga was completely lost in this episode. The quality in animation drops every other scene. One second Io looks like a little 12 year old kid and the next he's back to adulthood. The manga design didn't translate to animation well. Bianca...

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

Some interesting tidbits of information from an interview with Tatsuyuki Nagai in Ace. More when I get better copies. - Orga's death was initially planned to be a little earlier. - Ride's ending was decided during the first season. He went to earth right after their destruction. - Montag is McGillis...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Anime Thread Mk I

How does anyone here think of the scene between the golden-trimmed Zaku (Royal Guard?) and the GM at the beginning of the episode? I just don't understand why didn't the Zaku pilot make a conscious retreat to the nearest cover - standing right there and shooting at an enemy you know your bullet won...

The Official Gundam Twilight AXIS Anime Thread Mk I

News broke this morning that the internet is attempting to dismiss regarding the Twilight Axis novel (serialized on the Yatate Bunko website) has been greenlit as an anime. The information comes from a strange Japanese source claiming that it will become publicly known before AnimeJapan happens. We'...

Hey, thanks for posting this. It seems to end pretty abruptly, but lots of great info on the production there.
Because the interview segues into other sections.

[Interview] - The Case for Gundam F91 - Settling Rumors

In light of a recent review of Gundam F91 on the AnimeNewsNetwork, I decided to look into some of the strange rumors that have been circulating the net about F91's production: rumored staff rifts, what the series was supposed to be like, etc. I settled on an interview with Kouichi Inoue which seems ...

Re: A Few Questions On The Dolos Class

The book scan that you linked to on the Wiki is from a doujinshi and probably shouldn't be taken as anything remotely accurate in terms of world building/mechanical info. But, that's the Wiki for ya.

The game design is considerably different than the manga version. It's not a matter of the power cables.

Re: MS Catalog

EDIT: On the other hand, it does give us a pretty good look at the Hi-Nu Gundam's hyper mega bazooka launcher, which lines up almost exactly with the version from the Extreme Vs. games, so I guess that's the official depiction. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5mWzZNJrwA&t=1m06s Nope... the version...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

It took almost thirty years to complete Von Braun if that were the case so I'm hesitant to say the lunar settlements started prior to the start of the UC era.

Re: A Few Questions On The Dolos Class

Well, there's a couple manga offshoots that you have to consider as well: Gundam the Origin shows it beinging in Kycillia's Chibe (or whatever it was) and it crashes bringing it down. Gundam Thunderbolt refits it underwater to act as a submarine dock. In either case, those hangers have to be quite t...

Re: A bunch of assorted Gundam UC questions

On that note... was that guy with the mustache in Ep 11 the same Captain from Zeta that Scirocco throws around? Yes, albeit on the 0083 materials he's usually referred to as "high officer D" (or msomething like that), this is clearly Ted Ayachi, who in Zeta will command the Alexandria class Hario ....

Re: A bunch of assorted Gundam UC questions

3. The Side colonies and Lunar city-states have no direct representation or electoral franchise in the Federation government. Was there a source for this? Gundam 0083 does point out that they're worried about the colony drop onto Luna, but whether the Federation officials present at the table are r...

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

It's a bit of a lame plot point for this arc, though. "Uh oh, Iok just happened to check something out from one of the warehouses..." Seriously, if they know he took it, it's just a matter of Naze telling them to check the shipping logs since I'm assuming he is transporting it for Gjallahorn? Unless...
