Re: NBC usage at Loum/Side 5

the victorious Zeon forces went into the defenseless Side 5 and took their sweet time blowing up all the colonies one by one with nuclear warheads. Maybe for target practice? I dunno, that seems absolutely psychotic even for Zeon. On the other hand taking Char pretty much saying Zeon would destroy ...

Re: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

And deny it all you want guys, but evil people generally don't let others who try to kill them go not once, but including this episode, several times . I don't even see any anger over his crush shooting him in the back. So yeah, kudos to Ward for not being the true killer drama queens like Simmons ...

Re: Gundam 0083 Rebellion manga

Is it really anymore silly than investing resources to fix the Val Varo? Zeon believes in might over numbers - always has. And they always lose. They go for flashy uber weapons that probably eat up large amounts of resources they don't have a lot of and then get their asses handed to them the first...

Re: Mobile Suit Moon Gundam (tentative)

Funny how it has the Earth Federation seemingly slipping back into their MSG morally grey area, while Neo Zeon is going back to the Principality of Zeon's being lead by conniving bastards situation.

Re: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

I'm hoping the explanation for the apparent conflict between the two SHIELDs is a good one. Plus how do we know Ward is with the other SHIELD, he could just be taking over HYDRA, the episode is called Love in the Time of HYDRA after all so I figure they probably are involved in the episode in some c...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk III

The irony of Reconguista is that everyone ends up fighting to go back to Earth on their own terms because in their ideals they see a common humanity as a part of their identity, and the thought of drifting, changing, and decaying away from Earth is unbearable (as stated and demonstrated very clearl...

Re: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

but I'd guess we won't be seeing much of them again this season as this was probably done to clear the stage for whatever this group of superhumans are that took Raina. That would be the Inhumans. Which is interesting becuase it means Agents of Shield gets to play with them years before their movie...

Re: [Zeta Novel] - Zeon Zum Deikun's Speech

Zeon Zum Deikun (I should try to be current. ;P) is the man who steps up and says there is a purpose to the enforced communal construction of the enclosed Island III cylinders, and then the enforced communal life inside the same. (A Side 2 colonist could try living outside the big cylinders or conv...

Re: [Zeta Novel] - Zeon Zum Deikun's Speech

The real problem with the whole "space as a harsh unforgiving environment" thing is that life in a Island 3 isn't all that different from life on Earth. Indeed, that's the whole point of an Island 3. Sure, various disasters and unpredictable acts of God might lead to a quick and messy death in an I...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Maybe they did that to stop the Whitebase from being a boat full of children. . I can understand the thing about Bright. Considering Yas gave the White Base more crew this time around, including a wardroom with multiple junior officers, Bright had to be bumped up in age and in rank to take command ...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Not just the Zabis too. Mirai got bumped up a few years (she was 15 around the events of UC 71), and there was a reference to Bright's being 25 years old by the time Side 7 occurs. Maybe they did that to stop the Whitebase from being a boat full of children. Wow Gundam really is the Japanese equivi...

Re: The Official Gundam The Origin Anime Thread Mk I

Maybe we will have to wait a bit longer for an actual animated remake of Mobile Suit Gundam. Do we even need a remake? No. If you can't get over the animation quality, leave. Besides, continuity is already shot in the foot. Wow Gundam really is the Japanese equivialnt of Star Trek becuase its fundy...

Brave Fencer Kirby wrote:(Well, except for the part where they murdered him and usurped control of Side 3. I'm pretty sure Deikun wouldn't have supported that.)
I though it was ambiguous on whether Deikun was murdered or not. It probably doesn't help that the the guy who insists he was murdered also is a bit of a nut.

for much the same reason that remake-happy Hollywood wouldn't redo the original Star Wars trilogy (too much of a pop culture institution).

Agreed. Since I had the thought that Townsanga was a Moon Colony before this but instead it is a Colony Cluster that is in the darkside of the moon. So not Moon Race but maybe a new Zeon perhaps. So basically all those guys saying how if Zeon ran the show everything would be better are completely w...

, but I could have totally seen an "Athrun's Counterattack" scenario for the future of C.E.

Well if they went that way hopefully Athrun becomes...
