Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XII

So, another year, another wave of new Gunpla. I'm surprised somewhat that the hype is nonexistent here that an MG GM Sniper II is finally coming out. With that in mind I've now once again started to buy 1/100 kits. Well, I bought one, Grimgerde for $20 bucks thanks to Black Friday. Got an MG Amazing...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

The Gusion Full City is drawn oddly most of the time, and to be honest I preferred its quirky turtle form more. The entire thing is odd, from its odd proportions, whether in battle or in a standing pose in gunpla form, right down to it's name. However I can't conclude it to be an ugly unit just yet...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

+Love the visceral fight scene! Shows how a Barbatos with a proper Gundam Frame pilot is so much above all the others. Even smugfaces like McGillis and Julietta can only look in amazement. One of the most brutal Gundam fights I've ever seen. +Again, more real talk with Naze and Old Man on Orga, and ...

Re: Star Wars Rogue One

It's a good SW movie and a good movie overall. That doesn't mean I like the fact that everybody dies, even if I saw it coming. I was attached to K2SO and Ip Man (Speaking of which, I saw predictions before the release that most of them will live, and retire happily ever after on Alderaan :lol: ) -Jy...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

I've seen some theories thrown around the internets that the Gundam (Frame) pilots of old were closer to Ein than Mikazuki/Akihiro etc, that they were those who literally became one with their Gundams, uninhibited by any limiters. Didn't Barbatoss have a missing cockpit when it was found, and was ju...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

This was a good episode, but still the action is nowhere near as constant as i'd wish. Forever gone be the glory days of Zeta and similar shows. It's this director's annoying insistance on trying to give its massive cast some scenes even though they're wholly irrelevant. For example, -Atra and Kude...

If you mean that fourth-rate Blofeld ripoff with the purple lipstick and pastel-yellow pajamas, that's Jibril. And while I can definitely think of characters I hate more, Iok is definitely pretty high on my list of most-hated-Gundam-characters-ever. I was actually referring to Yuna (I had to look t...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

A good episode, but still too much talk, not enough smash. Next episode should fix that, unless we get a long-winded speech between Vidar and Chocky. It's good talk, though, and one I don't mind. They didn't spend time on DAILY LIVES BS that at least 10 full episodes in all of IBO has been prone to...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

First I have the hunch that Galileo's mask is an interface for Ein to take over Vidar and even control Galileo's body - hence recreating the AJ interface without requiring Galileo to give up his body or get the surgery as an adult. That may explain why it took so long for Vidar to get up and runnin...

And with the next episode's title, it appears we are about to get some rather serious war developments. SNT1 will doubtless like that, and won't be the only one.

With vacation and other stuff I was only able to watch IBO now. For better or worse, there isn't a whole lot going on in this episode.

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

No, I was comparing "multiple loses but without permanent damage" (most Gundam protagonist/you punch your friend ten times) to "single permanent damage" (Mika/losing a thumb). Gotcha, I've got your references mixed up (I thought you meant Mika vs Ein). In that case, I agree that Mika's situation ma...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

Well, while Mika doesn't lose yet, the battle against Graze Ein already cost him an arm and eye (outside of battle anyway). In this context, most Gundam protagonist have better record. A few lose mean nothing compare to permanent injury. If you want to argue about that, ask your friend to lets you ...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

Mika's record in battle puts Amuro/Kira/Heero/Setsuna to shame Uh, I think that's a bit of hyperbole there. Kira, Heero, and Setsuna all literally take on armies by themselves and win. Mika's fights in IBO are way less lopsided. Yeah, Mika is a beast in combat by IBO standards, but he doesn't have ...

Re: The Official Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Anime Thread Mk

I agree with the above points, but I still believe it was way too massively lopsided between Earth and Mars branch, even if the Earth crew is a small crew not necessarily for combat. Maybe it's Orga's own fault for putting someone like Takaki 2nd in command (lack of judgement all throughout, includi...

I'm sure I missed it, but what's was the reasoning for the Mars and Earth branch so far away in terms of fighting power, and personnel ranking? Mars branch basically has their top 5 pilots, up to 3 potentially wielding Gundams. I'm thinking someone like Eugene would have smelled the BS a mile away, ...

This episode has been massively satisfying... for a multitude of reasons. +Mecha action, of course. Starting with McGillis in action, still masterful. I am quite glad that he right away calls out the Tekkadan crew and started questioning if it was Orga's orders. Of course, stupid kids had to Leeroy ...
