I've seen translations for bits and pieces of Alexandros, Joan, Nero and Jesus (alongside with more science-fiction fare like Arion and Dirty Pair)

Yas' biography and his influence in his work

The English Wikipedia article on Yasuhiko says that he was a student at the University of Hirosaki (Aomori Prefecture in northern Honshu, just across the strait from Hokkaido: Yas' birthplace) only to drop out in 1969 to pursue a career in Mushi Productions, Osamu Tesuka's animation studio. The Japa...

Re: Cross Ange- New Sunrise x Fukuda mecha show

To that effect, I tend to feel the expression "pure, unhealthy and trashy" is interchangeable with "mindless cocktail of poorly done ideas" in its essence, making use of Erisie's phrases from a couple of posts ago without further elaboration. Want elaboration? Fine. Cross Ange is doing is thing wit...

Re: Cross Ange- New Sunrise x Fukuda mecha show

Fukuda has always been more about sensationalism rather than true craft and impact. The fact that he continues to think the last leg of stories should just have something wishy washy rather than a piece that makes you think 'this is what it all comes down to' just speaks of what a hack he is. Oh, I...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

So flash forwards of every major battle Char has participated? Loum, Side 7, New Yark, Jaburo and Abao aqu. I hope they don't do that. That's a bad thing. It will appear to be completely forced. Let's hope the subsequent episodes focus in the main story, without having to harvest action moments fro...

Re: Cross Ange- New Sunrise x Fukuda mecha show

I agree with Destiny_Gundam 's sentiment exactly. This episode was very End of Evangelion , with some elements of the various seaborne battles of SEED / Destiny added for good measure. Definitely the most Fukuda episode thus far, for better or worse. The way things are right now, it appears that we'...

, but I could have totally seen an "Athrun's Counterattack" scenario for the future of C.E. (They did say they wanted the SEED Movie to be remembered in that caliber early on before it was cancelled, as I recall from, I believe, GUNOTA Headlines.) Well if they went that way hopefully Athrun becomes...

As I said before, they don't know about what he did or did not do as Neo. All they know is that he participated in attacks that included civilians. That's a load of it. The "good guys" had their own private intelligence network: Terminal. It's bad, but considering that both the EA and ZAFT had inte...

Re: Vertical Inc Gundam manga survey

they're generally only looking at titles published from 2007 and onward. So that specifically means no original Crossbone and no license rescue for Ecole du Ciel. That's a tight cutoff line. Anyway, that includes (among others): Bonds of the Battlefield Thunderbolt Unicorn (Novel) Unicorn (Bande De...

Its sole existence, hidden or not, was a violation of the treaty. By the time Kira used it in Destiny, the treaty was no longer in effect. Or did you forget Girty Lue and the nuclear missiles? Just because the Earth Alliance decided to violate it to continue their attempts to destroy ZAFT, it doesn...

well, there sort of is. there's the GuAIZ Experimental Firearms Type , which seems to be a shared prototype for the both of them. Yeah, the EFT is a kinda-sorta MSV for both Freedom and Justice, with the important caveat that it's a monoeye. Not a full-fledged Gundam. still, the Freedom at the end ...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk III

The Freedom was simply not used and hidden, which is why it never became a problem. It doesn't matter who Kira is as he wasn't using using the Freedom. That's not mere semantics as it is obviously much easier to conceal something that is not being used. Its sole existence, hidden or not, was a viol...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk III

2. The Freedom can be repaired as it wasn't destroyed like the Justice. I'm talking from the point of view of the writing. The Freedom is repaired and is still able to obliterate anything on sight. When has an "old" machine in Gundam be so powerful before or after? It would have been much more inte...

Re: The Gundam SEED DESTINY Remaster Thread Mk III

I would say that about 15-20 episodes in Destiny still had the potential to be good. While you could point to a lot of contrivances through those episodes, the series was setting up some very interesting character dynamics, potential conflicts, and points of tension. That gave the series a lot of p...

Re: Cross Ange- New Sunrise x Fukuda mecha show

So, this week Cross Ange goes back to being Cross Ange in all its trashy glory. Tusk said something interesting: he's a part of the "Knights of Vilkiss". Why is his loyalty directed to a machine rather than, say, the Norma? Here is where I present another crazy theory: the Vilkiss came from the othe...
