And old design to replace the Strike Gundam from the previous series that was later modified and modernized.
Ok, but my question is why that is an issue. I wasn't questioning whether or not it's true.

Re: Mars Rays- erred, mistranslated, or yet to be explanied?

So the disease is named after the way the particles that cause the disease interact with the atmosphere while the particles themselves are left unnamed? Unless it's an error based on that translation, I don't understand the rationale for this.

Re: Next possible Gundam anime teased

Unless there's some change I'm unaware of, AU stand for Alternate Universe. So the timeline's name doesn't matter, if tthe show is in different verse from another, it is AU. Ok, to make it a little simpler, we can narrow it abit and discard some like adaption and such. So yes, BF verse is another A...

Oh, I think that has to do with what I said earlier. It's just not the focus of the story. Even Unicorn only uses it in the past when it needed to focus on someone.

Re: Discrepancies in Gundam political and military formation

Well, now that I think about it, it maybe possible for the Federal Prime minister to be like the American President as head of state and government. That's what I'm thinking. The guys in Japan just didn't think of everything. Or they simply used a term that is used in Japan, but possibly not the sa...

Re: Discrepancies in Gundam political and military formation

I'm not asking for the character himself or herself, just what title it is. Yes, that's also what identifying means. If you must have a title, then just use Prime Minister as that's already been shown. Otherwise, it's still not relevant to the story, so I think that's the best you're going to get u...

Re: Discrepancies in Gundam political and military formation

I meant that last part as an example of the things that TV and such require the audience to explain for them. It's kind of an advantage novels have over films, you see? Ok, but I still don't see the need to identify the Federation's head of government/state. Like I said, the focus of the story is n...

Re: Discrepancies in Gundam political and military formation

Maybe, but you'd think that in a Zeta episode that included the Federal Assembly, there'd be at least an unnamed guy referred to as "Mr. President", or whatever. I wouldn't ask for a complete list of every head of state/government that's ever led the entire Earth or a lot of things that would make ...

Re: Discrepancies in Gundam political and military formation

Is it okay if I blame the real world people in charge for not thinking this far ahead. Not that I mean to insult them, but it's true. They probably intended not to put a face to the Federation in order to distance the audience from them. The main struggle is between the little guys from the Federat...

Re: Discrepancies in Gundam political and military formation

Yes, that's exactly the distinction we've been talking about. The theory that the Federation has no head of state because there are no other nations to represent it to, as suggested by Dendribium Stamen, is still a pretty good one. In many modern nations, the head of state does virtually nothing an...

Re: Discrepancies in Gundam political and military formation

Then they'd be called a "president". Just because we've never seen a person identified as the Federation's head of state doesn't mean that no such person exists. But in the meantime, all we know is that they have (or had) a head of government, i.e. a prime minister (首相 in Japanese). -- Mark Not nec...

Re: Discrepancies in Gundam political and military formation

Ok, in which case the Prime Minister should be both Head of Government and Head of State, like the US President.

So does the UC Federation represent a single government of a global nation or is it more heterogeneous like the United Nations?

Just because SEED and SEED Destiny involved the some of the same/similar players does not mean that they told the same story. It's like WW1 and WW2.

Re: Gundam SEED movie greenlit plus other Gundam projects

I can't personally read the Tweet or whatever, but a few people on 4chan that supposedly can are saying this doesn't actually say anything about a SEED Movie?
