If you watch this Blu-ray due to some kind of mistake, please find what went wrong with 'Mobile Suit V Gundam.' If there is anyone who can learn something from it, we will have a meaning to release it as Blu-ray.

Why does Tomino hate Victory so much?
Isn't his butthurt stemming from the studio wanting to change a few things in the terms of mech designs, and no actual content changes?
>my favorite Gundam series is Victory
>Tomino hates it
Studio kept making demands so he went kill em all and made up goofy shit that would be difficult to turn into kits.

> Don't but this DVD
> Can only see the message if you actually buy it
> Maybe if someone learns something from it we can justify making more
> But don't buy it

Sounds like humor to me.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. A lot of artists hate it when their work is compromised not only by outside influences, but also by their own emotional problems. Victory probably does not feel authentic to him because he changed a lot of things out of anger/depression/his reaction to the buyout, rather than simply working to make it the best show possible.

Personally, I don't care and I love it. The passion of the rest of his staff and talents still shine through, and the brutality of the show is appropriate, but his reasons for disliking it are probably intensely personal and very valid.

It wasn't revealed that Killy -wasn't- human until later on in the manga.

Then again, the definition of "human" is pretty loose as far as Blame! is concerned.
I hope I can get this resin model of Tsumugi
Just finished the anime, haven't read the manga.

Really went downhill in the second season with the harem crap and less cool sci-fi stuff. Also the stuff with the council and Oriachi didn't seem to go anywhere, I'm guessing it does in the manga.

What other series do 'hard' scifi stuff? I know there's Gunbuster and Freedom (too many bikes).
All of Nihei's other works
Patlabor (although it doesn't really have the whole sci-fi aesthetic)
Ghost in the Shell
Gundam Seed Stargazer has a bit of it
Macross Plus
Infinite Ryvius

Ochiai doesn't really go anywhere in the manga either, nor does the council.

Why does UC Gundam have such a hard on for engineering students?

Has Anyone Really Been Far Even as Decided to Use Even Go Want to do Look More Like?
>we even saw at Kamille in high school, but neither were specific students of engineering, I'm sure. They both seemed to have an interest in mecha and engineering, stemming from their parents.
Rewatch the first episode or two. When Kamille is arrested and being interrogated by the Titans officer, we are shown from Kamille's record that he is a champion junior MS and powered glider pilot. The Titans officer even goes so far as to say that Kamille could be a exemplary candidate for Titans recruitment if he didn't have a problem with authority.

Kou was a pilot trainee that was fresh out of the academy, but he always had a thing for engineering, especially early on in 0083 when the first couple of episodes are cementing his character type. In fact, a lot of the the early interactions that he has between himself and Nina are debating and arguing over the GP01's OS tuning and operation, and the data recordings of the GP01. In the 0083 Rebellion manga retelling which shows some of Kou's days at the academy, he is a full on mecha geek who would rather spend his free time analyzing a wrecked Zaku on the outskirts of town than go on a date with local girls.

Uso has amateur experience with engineering, I guess. He mentions having a MS simulator in the log cabin back in Kasseraelia and a library of learning material, some of which I think were MS manuals. It explains why he knows how to operate the Shokew and Victory with no training.
Actually in terms of schooling: what was Amuro's and Kamille's level?

Amuro I assume dropped out of high school and became a full time officer by the time of Jaburo. (He was a full Lt. Commander by the end of CCA at only the age of 28. If he had survived, I'd imagine he would have made commander or beyond before finally leaving)

Kamille is implied to have become a brain surgeon after retiring in ZZ. He obviously had to go back and complete high school and then med school.
>Kamille is implied to have become a brain surgeon after retiring in ZZ. He obviously had to go back and complete high school and then med school.
That comes from the UC0099 Moon Crisis manga, which needless to say isn't very official and according to some sources is set in an alternate UC timeline.
>I'd imagine he would have made commander or beyond before finally leaving

I totally see Amuro being a military "lifer" by the time of CCA. Especially if Chan had gotten pregnant. (The EFSF apparently pays well) Plus I highly doubt the Federations would just let him walk away. Better to have him serve under a command structure than risk him going off and possibly fermenting a rebellion if he radicalized.

As much as I'd hate to admit it, these AT-ST designs really grew on me during the Rebels show. I hope they make an appearance in Rogue One.
Isn't that just the original design that Joe JOhnston did?

No, they're obviously from Galactic Battlegrounds, the one true source of all canon.
I believe so, yes. Still, it's moe in its own right. And I like it over the Original Trilogy design.

Rando internet porned for five mionute forbe then got out his shiaving and was groomed. his depression was out of hand now that SHIN GOJIRA was died and he had no longer to fight form. He got a phone call that said "Rando, you need to get to work, there is a meeting!" so he got dressedf and walked there.


Meanwhile at the meeting rando got to there there as at the polcie station where to talk abouti how that was going to happen once shin godizlla woke up agian. "Hello rando this is captain gotoda of the shin next gneration labor force!" said the prime minister. "HA, but your labor-atorium couldn't send big enough to defeat this menace, you are simply good at getting on my NERV!" say rando. "That is where you are wrong, I have the blueprints for hte ultimate plan! We will build labors combine into the largest robot for maximum force. I am here for us to assemble greatest possible team!" "Whose farce was this idea of yours!" "It was not mine, but HIS!" say kayoko ann patterson and she look to see her real boss, NICK FURY. "It fowrk the avergners, therefore we must fallow a similar protocol here! or else te prisedtn of the united states, there is no telling what he will do if SHIN GOJIRA wakes up again! I cannot leash him fopr much longer with my fast networks of influence" say nick fury. "Then we must assemble team now!" say Rando. But then Gotoda left and he got on a bus and he thought to himself "But little did they know that GOTODA did not exist, there has only ever been GOTO!" think Goto.

For those unfamiliar, "plamo" is a shortened form of "plastic model". If it's made of plastic, someone can probably help you here!

>Lego is forcing Faber to remove all his concept art


What the FUCK is going on.
Lego's rubbing our own salt into our own wounds. Turns out G2 was just a Makuta-level ploy to test how much disappointment fans can take.

Either that or legal issues. Maybe they want to reserve the concept art for that showroom or whatever the fuck that Faber talked about some years ago. Don't know if it's still a thing.

But given Lego's handling of the line, I wouldn't be surprised if they are opening the Bionicle showroom only to set it on fire and put up a livestream of it, then ask a bunch of AFOLs dressed in Star Wars and Ninjago cosplay to take a dump on the ashes.

Weekly update #3

Added: Ship Laboratory - Equivalent to berry planting in vanilla Pokemon.
It's mainly used to farm EV (Stat enhancing) berries, and basic healing items. The idea is to let players who are strapped for cash squeeze out a few extra items, or give people who want to powergame access to the EV mechanic without having them go through ridiculous hoops/require a wiki to find EV distributions.

Mecha added:
/m/-tan; he's our game's Ditto, but with better HP. There's two versions, one is plot related, similar to the Red Gyarados, and the others are "generic", the plot related one has a much better ability (Imposter instead of Limber).

Pilots added:
Kamille as Mind Plate
Fa Yuiry as Red Card
Setsuna as EXP Share(?)

We're looking at the rest of the suggested pilots and trying to find items that fit. Same with Mechs, instead we're searching for assets.

Gotcha, he's in.

A mon with 3 different rapidly changing types, abilities, and stats would be a mess to balance.

Having them as separate Mechamon gives the player a bit more variety; all the getter types currently have their own evo lines, stats, movesets, abilities, etc.

We could have it where any getter can change into another form outside of battle, but that might be cumbersome.
Actually, thinking about it, it wouldn't be that hard to balance at all. If you look at it from a purely statistical viewpoint, then think about what changing into each form would mean.

Getter 1 is the balanced, standard form, so we'll skip it. It's what you'll change into when you use most attacks.

Getter 2 requires a priority move. Changing into it leaves you vulnerable for the round since it's defences are low, but it almost guarantees that you'll go first next round since your stats change after turn order is calculated. Getter 3 is the opposite - you'll be able to take a hit, but you'll go last next turn, and it isn't abusable like Aegislash since it doesn't trigger from Protect-like moves.

I dunno, I just think it'd be a fun concept to play with.
Daisetzusan Oroshi = Circle throw
Makes sense for sure. Most combat takes place in space where throws might not make much sense but we can consider it
Some unit suggestions:
You can fill out some of the Bio slots with Brain Powerd, Zoids, and Betterman.

Fafner has quite a few units. Might be worth squeezing in to fill slots for PSI or Bio.

If you need grunts and marine units, Brain Powerd, Aquatic MS, and FMP

Also, you'd be suprised how many MSV's are just recolors. Aquatic Zaku's are literally just blue and orange recolors

Jirachi or Deoxys could be Fafner Mark Sein and Nicht.

I didn't see LODM Gaiking characters, those have sprites in DS SRW games already. All(I think) of the shows I've mentioned already have sprites in SRW, so you can just rip them.

Just got done watching this for the first time, Is Arno Seabook the GOAT Gundam Protagonist?

>Downs 3 veteran MS pilots on his first sortie
>Jumps out two story windows like it's nothing

Who names their kid Seabook?
If he'd gotten a full series then he probably would have had time to mope about having to kill people, and he would probably have had more sorties where he sucked before suddenly becoming an ace pilot. When your show becomes a movie you've got to get shit done now.
Depending what you're expecting from it, yeah.

If you just want more adventures with Seabook, Cecily, and Zabine. Yeah, you're good to go.

If you're expecting to have the open question at the end of F-91 addressed...you may be disappointed.

The entire Crossbone Vanguard internal conflict is addressed and written off in a single page to recast the Vanguard as a group of scrappy space pirate rebels doing battle with the Jovian Empire (who are...kind of one of the darker shades of black as Gundam antagonist factions go.)
No unless you read/watch Gundam for one dimensional villains and lolis with a silly story.
That's Tobia, not Seabook.
