Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk V

The only real, genuine and honest Zeon fanwank for me has been MS Igloo. Zeon all the way! They all have their moments from where I'm sitting primarily in fight scenes where Zeonic units will pick the federation to shreds way too easily. 08th: the boldest example, In my opinion, is the Apuasalus it...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread AGE-6

i just have to say that against all expectations at the outset of Kio's arc, Zanald Beihart has become my favorite character he sold me when he smacked the Ghirarga upside the head with the Zamdrag's tail. it's spectacular. he sees what the audience sees, that Zeheart is actually probably the lames...

Re: Gundam Protagonist you Consider the Best

Well, Wing has a special place for me because it was both my entry into the franchise AND my first mecha anime ever. But looking at it objectively, of the five, the vast majority see very little actual character growth to speak of; You look at any one of the five of them in their respective first a...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Mecha Thread Mk III

The main feature of the Jegan Type D is that it has latches for attaching optional equipment, like the Stark Jegan parts. That probably makes it more useful for special forces like the Londo Bell, but evidently the regular forces have moved on in the meantime. As for the General Revil, the novels s...

Re: Female Characters: Which Gundam series does the BEST job

For me, Gundam X and G Gundam ( I know its a shock from me) do a very good job with their females. Wing was pretty much alright considering what happened in there (in a good way I mean). UC's tend to be on the poorer side in terms of dealing with females. Fortunately there are a few that do pretty d...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk IV

Also, I still do not understand Riddhe being attracted to Mineva. Someone to be explaining for to me? It's her poofy hair; he just wants to play with it. Also, the fact that she's the daughter of a politician who wishes to distance herself from her family (sound familiar?) might have something to d...

Re: Gundam SEED HD Remaster airs Winter 2011

You know, NOT making her a useless, spineless, crying ninny with a horrifically deconstructed personality. Amen to that. Doing so and of course keeping her with Athrun and not having Athrun have all of that fracas that happened in SEED Destiny would be an enormous step to fixing the problems Destin...

Samuel j. Houston on a bicycle, after the last twenty episodes of mediocre Gundam AGE this was a breath of fresh air I sorely needed. ANYWAY, YOU KNOW WHAT ROCKS MY WORLD ABOUT THIS EP?! They made Ashimars, the ugliest frakking MS next to the Baund Docs, from Zeta actually look cool. But what makes...

Re: Gundam SEED HD Remaster airs Winter 2011

I am so glad I stopped watching this after episode 2...because frankly, that's sad. Join the club. I can't really see any good in this HD remaster when the resources committed to this should have been committed elsewhere. I guess at least for me it's a case of "they already had tons of fanservice a...

Re: The Official Gundam Unicorn Anime Thread Mk IV

After what happened with episode 4, the OVA series returns to grand form with this episode. While perhaps it could have been more epic, I'll take whatever I can get and fortunately the episode delivered. Excellent to see Bright again along with the cameos of Kai and Beltorchika. Also liked his conve...

While I admit that this wasn't my cup of tea, I really had no problem with this series and thought it was fun. Season 2 had some problems in my view and from what I have heard over the years, I'm not alone with well my thoughts that Season 2 had some pretty big problems in the later stages. And of c...

Re: Burke's First Impressions of Gundam Seed!

I rather like the GINN. Strikes me as being a Zaku with the 20 odd years of experience learned. Which is why I was so dissapointed when Destiny just flat out copied Zeon stuff, including the exposed cables. The cleaner style of the GINN really helped sell the idea the Coordinators were in advance o...

They're bad guys as they serve as the MS cover for the Garuda, which is under the command of Martha Vist Carbine.

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Thread Mk V

While with Asemu calling himself a "super pilot" is well corny, the fact that as of right now, Asemu is doing well in the suit without being an X-rounder is an excellent fact. Like several others here, I'm glad they went that route of that Asemu triumphing with his own skills and despite the odds of...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread Mk IV

Who's Aki? I don't see Asemu becoming a vegetable like Kamille in the beginning of ZZ, although all the crap he's gone through must have turned himself around from being a loser to being the butt kicker, though I must pity Decil for being on the receiving end of Asemu's rage mode. Not even Flit had...
