Re: Char's speech at Dakar

How the heck do you figure that? Apparently he hacked an Earth Federation asteroid monitoring station and turned it off meaning an asteroid could hit a Zeon colony and raise tensions. Or at least thats what something I read online says. Besides that would they really trust a guy who to take credit ...

Well The Origin does imply he may have started the One Year War and that is going to be animated soon, does that count for something?

Re: Char's speech at Dakar

In that case, standing up there and saying "I'm the guy who helped destroy the Zabi family from within, and now you guys have a corrupt dictatorship of your own to deal with" might have a certain credibility. It was really one member of the family he directly killed while the Earth Federation did m...

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk II

With all the Minovsky Craft/Newtype shenanigans, I'd believe it if the Su-Cordists were primarily Newtypes, if not that eating people would be very, very counter to Newtype behavior. I don't think we've gotten a non-Cyber Newtype who legitimately got a kick out of the emotional waves they created w...

Re: Gundam Protagonist you Consider the Best

Karen Traviss' beef with the Jedi seems to center around the fact that she doesn't like how Jedi are portrayed as people who can do no moral wrong, especially when they had no qualms about using the clone army (some interpret his as using a slave race). They get to be morally superior becuase the R...

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

I just noticed that D.O.M.E.'s big speech in Gundam X about what Newtypes really are could be taken as a take that towards the Universal Century and interestingly enough the end of Unicorn (which was pretty prophetic). Mostly with seemingly calling out the adults for basically being useless and dump...

Except seeing as they were the ones attacking it would be like the Earth Alliance using the destruction of Junius 7 as propaganda.

Re: The Official Gundam Reconguista Anime Thread Mk I

If this is true that Tomino said there is a colony in Venus, then he is braver then sci-fi writers of old that shy away from telling stories of colonies on Venus after it was found that Venus is a hell made of acid that prohibits any kind of terraforming except probably full on matter-energy-matter...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VII

But it's hard to hold it against Banrise, as Bioware totally forgot about that little bit of world-building in Mass Effect 3 . It'd be hypocritical to apply a double-standard to Unicorn . Good thing for me I have unabiding disgust for Bioware's ignoring of its own world-building in ME3, so I can sa...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VII

Whoopsies. Maybe the supposed rumors about future UC cannibalism have roots here somewhere. Is it just me, or does it sound like the more stuff the surfaces about Reconguista the more it sounds like Yoshiyuki Tomino is saying Zeon and all the other spacenoid supremeist groups have basically screwed...

I'd assume that without the support of the EF, the colonies began dying out when they started failing.

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VII

Well, Reconguista is over a thousand years down the line. I'm not sure how many of their problems can be traced specifically to the weakening of the Federation's influence in space; any number of things could have happened in the interim. Though considering at least two new amoral factions with doo...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VII

There may not have been mass upheaval, but the UC world and the Federation's place in it is indeed different. Perhaps we're meant to infer that as the long term effect of Mineva's broadcast. Considering how bad off humanity sounds as being in the upcoming Gundam series that kind of makes Unicorns h...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk VII

Not stray nukes - stray SHOTS, like from MPC. Yes, several of the colony kills were likely fired from Federation ships, but that doesn't mean it's their "fault" any more than it is Zeon's for springing an attack on the Fed fleet in the middle of Side 5. But whatever the truth about Loum, we'll like...

Re: What happens between ZZ and CCA?

I'm not sure how much effect Kamille's fate really had here - in Hi-Streamer, he seems pretty callous about it, and it's not clear from the dialogue whether or not he even knew what happened to Kamille. His main argument here is that the war with the Titans showed him how hopeless it was was to try...
