Re: Neo Zeon MS use by EFSF? (Also, Hyaku Shiki question)

Ultimately, these drastic decisions forced the EF to continue relying on the GM II 9 years after the beginning of the Gryps War, a time when it was already deemed obsolete by newer MS. Even worse, they had to go back and remove the dust from the RAG-79, in order to have a non-Zeon amphibious MS. Th...

Re: Heat Saber: Does it work that well?

One notable scene to consider as well is late in episode 1 of 0083 when a Dom Tropen uses its heat saber to cut through the midsection of a captured Zaku II F2 with relative ease. The weapon bends as it cuts through the Zaku, then straightens back out after cutting through.

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

Most AV users have this headgear that covers the ears anyway, so it would also mess with the comm system to have their ears bleeding and show the drips out from the headset.

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

Oh man, WHAT A EP... things are really ramping up now. And now we see what beam weapons actually mean now.... But if you think about it, in a way IBO is kind of giving the middle finger to Seed/Destiny/00's beam weapon spamming! lol Yeah, kinda, though Setsuna had a preference for bladed weapons, s...

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

Oh dear. Now I know how Jamil felt about seeing a GX after 15 years. We as viewers can't really understand a colony drop beyond its WMD effects, but we are quite acquainted with what a mobile armor can do having seen several over the course of the franchise.

Re: Attaching Armor???

In the case of the movable frame technology, it was probably bolted on or affixed by some other non-permanent means (no direct welding for example) as the armor and various other components could be moved about the frame if for no other reason to reduce downtime for repairs and replacement of parts....

Re: Gran-xandria

Anyone else noticed the smaller ship/vehicle with an accompanying Hizack? I wonder if it's supposed to dock with the Gran-Xandria, perhaps under the belly? The idea slightly reminds me of the Gunperry. Unlike the Pegasus class, I don't see an obvious spot where you'd dock the thing, but it is an in...

Although I'm conflicted on the Gusion Rebake's Full City melee shield weapon which is a vicegrip that also highly resembles..... shear cutters... like its about to do some gardening work.... very strange... I hope there is a another hand held weapon for the Full City, like a axe or swords. Wouldn't...

Re: What MS design would you like to fix?

Pallas Athene, I'd remove the thruster on the rear skirt armor, gives a new meaning to referring that area as the ass-end of a Mobile Suit. Have you seen the rear of the Byarlant lately? The Athene got nothing on that rear end. The Qubeley Mk II should have two more spots for its additional funnels...

Ho dang. ZOINKS has gotten real here. Roid's a perv changing Mikumo like that and then tying her up while she's unconscious. Then he pulls a Hazanko on Melfina and mind controls her with a single (built-in?) phrase to bend her to his will and become this Star Singer. Something that it seems Lady M a...

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

Sure, we can't compare animation, writing, battle choreography, budget, OST, mech/chara designs, etc objectively... Of course we can. Theoretically at least. But I see you doing none of the above. All you've done is bitch about how bad the OVA supposedly is. The only acceptable thing you could say ...

Given your history you are one of the LAST people to talk as if they are being objective about a Gundam show.

Rumor has it that more episodes in a similar vein will be made. Not many though, maybe 2 I think if I have my rumors right.

Damn, lots of crazy messed up stuff going on in this episode. Trippin' balls on fold acid this time 'round. Though I'm more interested in Kumo-Kumo's history that's hinted at here. If the likes of Sheryl, Ranka, and anyone else who sing and amp up with fold quartz powers were Newtypes, than Mikumo ...
