Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

According to the scan i have seen, there will be an episode next wk then another break the week after. Even if the episodes are animated, how can they show it if they cant get a timeslot? Sunrise has been uploading the episodes to Youtube every week, on the dot, as well as airing them on Television...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

If true, then this will seriously offset the new Anime Season. Shouldn't the next couple of episodes already be animated though?

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

Having skimmed some other boards, I believe Mechatalk's Three Page War needs to be framed, and put on a wall somewhere as a award for civility. Most others are fighting far more fiercely, and with more hate than we. Lol In all of this we have missed one important fact though. Still no Elmeda. -Rapto...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

My only problem with just wiping out the military, is that the fanatical following we've seen so far makes it seem like even without the military they would fight on. Moreover, the Federation has their own evils, as they always seem to in Gundam, so I doubt that even if they had apologized, they wou...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

I never claimed that the Vagan we see would ever want to shy from their revenge. Everyone has been humanizing them, so I was merely stating that from the human standpoint we seem to want to give them, this would have been the best option. However, from that same human standpoint, they have chosen no...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

60 years, mayhaps? My point is quite simply this. Instead of blowing up colonies, they could have been slowly migrating to them. Instead of massing an army, they could have been BUILDING colonies, or colonizing other places. We've seen plenty of asteroid bases in Gundam. We know that Vagan have a hi...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

I don't think the feds would let the Vagans come back to Earth, seeing how they completing deny the existence of the Mars Settlement Plan. The feds left them there to die. If they tried to come back somehow, I am pretty sure the Federation would ensure they wouldn't make it out alive. They didn't h...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

My point was not that everyone could hide as well as the Vagan that were working with Olfenoa, just that that's probably how they got there. However, with that said, apparently their soldiers were trained in the ways of espionage, because no one suspected them in Gen 3 while they hid on Earth, waiti...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

Then let them go to Earth. Let them sneak into the colonies in small numbers, Like They Did, then take transports from there to Earth. Tell me that a sane person wouldn't have thought of that. Heck, I bet that's how their agents that were on Earth working with Olfenoa got there! And they could have ...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

I stand by my former statement from the last thread. If all they wanted was survival, they would have simply remained hidden on the colonies. They were easily able to assimilate into them, and they could have simply lived out their lives. What if there had been too many of them for the colonies? The...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

For the first ten years or so, I would agree. Maybe even thirty years, though that's a stretch. But waiting for a promise for 60 Years? When it's clear it's not working, and they have the technology to build super advanced MS, yet not to cure the Mars Rays? There's no way he should still be in power...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

Regardless of the fact that they're human, we still have an entire race of people calling for the destruction of every human on the earth. As humans on the earth, there is no choice but to fight back. And as long as Ezelcant's ambition lives, even if he doesn't, the Vagan will continue to attack the...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

I can't help but get a kick of out a few claims on various blogs that AGE is a kid's show, when some of the same blogs have touted GaoGaiGar and Getter Robo for it's brilliance. I'll be the first to defend GaoGaiGar, but it didn't get anywhere near as dark as AGE until the end, so here I find myself...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

I won't say I liked it more than Season 1. For starters, Season 1 of 00 had Neil, Awesome Hallelujah, Robot Tieria, Soldier Boy/Second Coming of Heero Yuy Setsuna, and Flag Fighter Graham. Not to mention all of the twists with the Trinitys and Prince Ali. I also liked the designs of the Gundams them...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

I won't claim Gen 1 was the best thing since 00 Season 1, but Flit is one of my more favorite MCs in Gundam. I'm all for revenge driven characters, and Flit was very interesting as an vengeance driven kid, who still had a kid's sensibilities. I wouldn't say that it lacks something SEED/Destiny and 0...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

So these games are going to tell an original story, showcasing Flit as he grows older, and is a Federation pilot, more of his time with Emily, and him fighting against Dole. WHY WASN'T THIS IN THE SERIES?!? Take some time away from Zeheart and Asemu in school! Or from the entire Fardain Arc! This wo...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-7

Though I agree, and am quite sure that is the main reason behind them, in all fairness, if the first episode you see of something is episode 41, you should expect to see some stuff you don't understand. You don't pick up a book, start five chapters from the end, and expect to know what's happening. ...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-6

My last post for this thread, I will assume, so I'll make it count. This episode was okay. The action was nice, we got some good development, IMO, with Fram, and the Fawnfarsia was alright. Not big on it, but it didn't make me want to stab anyone, so... However, the flashbacks hurt the episode. The ...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-6

Let them mock.

Skaters gonna Skate. Or something like that.

In all reality though, people to this day still say they were right, and Gundam 00 killed Gundam in english, even though Unicorn is getting a dub. So people are just stupid.

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-6

Despite defending Romary for as long as I could last gen, I do find some irony in the situation. We normally find the canon pairing that has the kind of support Asemu and Arisa had scene wise, and then normally fans take the smallest detail and make it THE fan pairing for the character, even if that...
