Re: Fan Consensus on Canon in UC and Reguild

I personally preferred Star Wars old system to the Gundam system to be honest, even if the latter gives you more freedom as an individual. What Lucas lying to you about the EU meaning something other than a possible idea mine. I mean seriously people act like they only started rewriting stuff when ...

Re: UC's Earth born elite- Just how elite are they?

A Zeon Admiral referring to Earth as a Mudball and saying the Federation can have it for all he cares, and some Zeon troops embarking on a crazy plan to blow up the Gundam just so they can go home isn't loathing :? Then there Shiro Amada's being impressed with Earth kind of crapping out what he fou...

Re: UC's Earth born elite- Just how elite are they?

For my own POV, the concept of Earthnoid elitism mainly stems from the fact that the people living on Earth have "elite" status mainly because they live on Earth. No perpetually recycled air & water, 1.0 gravity all the time, real sky, and animals all over the place. There is real weather, real cli...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

I mean, yeah, by their very nature, the manga stuff is more niche than the anime stuff is, since it only really gets exposure in the fandom itself (as opposed to the general public). But there's not really anything to suggest that the titles in question sell poorly within the fandom, as you're impl...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Actually, that stuff - early OYW Zeon curb stomping - has been in plenty of manga and games. All of which is usually bought by a fraction of the total fanbase. Hence why it's not considered part of the continuity. Actually, those manga & games have been bought by much of Gundam's total fanbase. Are...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Origin Manga Thread

Yah..I mean, I did some "research" and went to MAHQs reviews of the episodes of the anime to see exactly how far spread out the events of the Origin are compared to the manga and it was like O.o damn, feels like Ramba Ral was in MSG ALOT longer then he was in Origin In Origin he just kinda shows up...

Re: The Official Gundam: The Origin Manga Thread

Side note: I especially liked the direct comparison drawn between Zeon and Imperial Japan. I've always liked the comparison of "Federation=Modern Japan, Zeon=Imperial", though I suspect Yas might get a bit of flak from 2chan for this :lol: I made a post about that same similarity a couple of years ...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

I'm starting to wonder if they might be planing to combine volumes 5-7 into the first film and then just do 2 volumes each per film for the other 3 films of the series.

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

the stuff in the flashbacks has never been covered before in animation (and the majority hasn't even really been covered in anything besides the ORIGIN manga). I think that might have to do with the likely possibility that watching the Zeon mass murder everyone and crush the only force that dares o...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

After the announcement, I thought "okay, Part I will start will start with the backstory then move up to Side 7". Unexpected, but different, and it could work because I can see it, and it would stand out moreso than 0079 and just a retelling of 0079. Now, after hearing the comments, I'm not sure ab...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VI

Continuing intransigence in this regard led to the post-0079 Zeon factions in arms being labeled "terrorists" across the board, with all the negative loading of that term halting any process that might give said factions an incentive to accept a negotiated peace. But in all fairness, they WERE terr...

Re: Star Wars Episode VII

Disney is incapable of producing material that is not aimed at the prepubescent, and from this misconception stems their fear that Disney will somehow "ruin" Star Wars by kiddifying it. I dont know man, Bambi made a lot of kids cry when that mother deer died. :? Seriosuly though, I've seen the new ...
