Re: Stuff You Can't Believe You Just Figured Out

^ And there's also the Jenice and Juracg, for (presumably) January and July. On top of that, the model numbers for many of the SRA mobile suits are direct references to Zeon MS model numbers, not to mention that the designs are very similar to their Zeon counterparts (Jenice/Zaku, Juracg/Gouf, Septe...

Re: Newtypes and their place in Gundam

(Apologies if this seems rambling or disjointed--it's not easy to write something like this in between things at work.) I've long been attracted to the idea of psychic abilities/using the power of one's mind to do extraordinary things in other media and other franchises, so it didn't really come as ...

Re: The Official Gundam Wing Thread

that's what they said about the whole of Wing , and now we're all looking back nostalgically and waxing poetic about its virtues alongside its flaws that and to be fair, much of that came from the slash fangirls. That's a big reason I decided to stay far, far away from the Wing fandom itself. Nobod...

Re: Official After War Gundam X Thread

I think "Power by You" was just supposed to be an image song, since that was done by Garrod's seiyuu, and there was another song on there by Tiffa's seiyuu as well. (And then they each have another one on the third soundtrack as well.) Such things are so incredibly common with anime soundtracks (the...

Re: The Official Gundam Wing Thread

^ I suppose the fact that the tech looks so unabashedly mid-'90s is part of what makes it look so dated to me, but at the same time, it's part of the charm too. Technology is one of those things that's sometimes so hard to predict what it might look like in the future (I'm not sure how many people i...

Re: Official After War Gundam X Thread

It actually grows on you and fits the series if you give it a good listen. It's not as accessible as, say, Wing, but it's an OST that has a number of great mood or action songs mixed in, and as a whole, provides X with another unique facet to its AU lore. I think it leans more toward G-Gundam's sou...

Re: The Official Gundam Wing Thread

While I've long since branched out into other aspects of the franchise, Gundam Wing was what brought me into Gundam as a whole, and I never looked back after that. Sure, it's a little cheesy now, and it's not aged particularly well in many ways, not to mention that there are far better Gundam series...

Re: Official After War Gundam X Thread

Even before Unicorn, this was one of my favorite elements about X - the entire exchange between Zidel, Bloodman, Garrod, Tifa, Jamil, and DOME, and the almost brutal way in which DOME basically flushed every preconceived notion about Newtypes to date right down the drain. I especially loved DOME's ...

Re: Official After War Gundam X Thread

^ One story I would've really liked to see would've been a more in-depth take on the events of the 7th Space War, whether from the perspective of Jamil or Lancelow (I'm sorry, but I just can't spell his name with an R), or from the perspective of an entirely new character, even if it would be hard t...

Re: Official After War Gundam X Thread

...Okay, I'll admit it. Seeing this thread was the siren song that got me to finally join. I've seen quite a bit of the various Gundam series over the years--not all of them, but quite a bit--but somehow, this is the series I keep coming back to without fail. Heck, it's a big part of why I've found ...

Re: Member Introduction Thread Mk IV

So...I've been lurking for a while now and finally decided to join. I don't know how many people here would even remember me from back then, but I go all the way back to the original Gundam Project, Gundam.com, and Gundamwatch forums of the early 2000s, which seriously puts a date on me, and I've ha...
