This might be THE anime that proves the existence of objective quality. I'm becoming increasingly convinced that G Gundam is good as a matter of FACT rather than OPINION, and that all criticism leveled against it is reducible to simple misunderstanding. Go ahead and post why you dislike the series. I guarantee that failure to understand some aspect on your part is responsible for the distorted perception you have. Just as 2 + 2 = 4, G Gundam = good. And in the same way that anyone can be made to see why 2 + 2 = 4 through proper understanding of math, so too can anyone be made to see why G Gundam is good through proper understanding of the series. This is the first example I've encountered of an anime that seems to possess intrinsic quality, completely independent of any one person's subjective evaluation.

Whatever it is, it's certainly better than pseudo-intellectual garbage like G-Reco.

so similar to the second Code Geass movie had Suzaku as the main character, this movie will have the pink haired girl as the mc for this movie?

> His general disconnect and lack of empathy for everyone around him

What disconnect and lac of empathy? He seems to have healthier relationships than at any other point in his life that we see in Char's Counterattack. He talks openly and equally with Bright, is kind to Hathaway, seems to be friends with Astoniage and Kayra and has a good relationship with Chan. The only real moment of disconnect he has in the movie is directly after waking up from a dream about Lalah and Char, where he's terse with Chan in the immediate aftermath of waking up. Which, yea, no shit. Dreaming about an old love would make anyone act out of sorts with their current partner. When he does meet Chan outside the room though, he says her name fondly.

The only other thing I can think of that might suggest either is that he doesn't become Quess' guardian. Which, no shit. Why would he? He's a soldier in the middle of a war and with a lot on his mind. He treats her friendly when he does encounter, brings her along on a tour of the colony he's doing with Hathaway and is as nice as can be expected with her for that limited time. He just isn't willing to become a full time parent for her. And there's no reason to expect he should want to, or to view him as lacking empathy because he won't.

> his contentedness with being no more than an automaton serving what is in a way no more than the Earth Federation's second attempt at the Titans

I think putting it this way is oversimplifying things for convenience. Amuro is willing to work for the Federation within Londo Bell because their goals align with his own. Primarily stopping Char. Working with them allows him the tools to fulfill that goal. We also know from Zeta that if their methods or goals become something he dislikes he's willing to say "No" and work against them just as much as Char. Saying he's content to be no more than automaton for them makes it sound like he's docilely working for the Federation despite disagreeing with them and will never turn against them.

> Amuro's whole thing is that he believes they have to show the world the "better way" and the "light within the human heart"

It's not really his whole thing, so much as some words he said to Char when Char started shouting at him. That doesn't mean he doesn't believe them obviously, just that it doesn't make them the guiding principle of his whole life just because he responded with them to one of Char's arguments. Not to mention that the other thing he said to Char is that he thinks real change will take time and that he's willing to wait for it. He wanted to defeat Char and others like Char in order to give the world that time, not so that he could show them the light of the human heart or any better way. He wasn't so arrogant as to think he could show humanity that on his own. As such, I don't really see how there's any contradiction there either.
That said, I do agree he's become the thing he was originally fighting against in 0079, since however inadvertently, he's helping perpetuate problems successive generations will need to solve, just like Char is orphaning kids and perpetuating a cycle of hatred; I just don't think he's become this cold and disconnected person. Not in Char's Counterattack at least. I haven't read Beltorchika's Children to speak to that.
>everyone and their mother in Zeta says Char is a cunt who will betray everyone.
>everything Char does in Zeta forshadows him as an absolute cunt who only cares about people as long as they are useful to him
So did Char hate Quess because he was looking for a mother figure but only got a daughter figure?

As Musashi said in Arc, the will of the Getter (as in, Emperor) flew to Mars, so it's more likely to be that very Shin Getter that flew to the planet after absorbing many things just like Emperor.
It's clearly stated in the manga. Getter Emperor has memories of Earth up until Shin Getter flew to Mars. Which means that Shin Getter = Emperor, and Getter Saint Dragon is most definitely not related to Emperor. Getter Saint Dragon is also definitely Getter Dragon and you can see the future that Ryouma saw starting to occur at the end of Arc (Hayato releases Dragon to destroy Kamui, polluting the Earth with a mass amount of Getter radiation, forcing humanity to head into space and leading to the future Ryouma saw)
You're right, I forgot about that part in Arc, it's been a few years.
I enjoyed it

Love this guy. He has one goal and one goal only in life which is to chop boats in half and you can tell he loves doing it. If everyone were like Glossom X2 the world would be a better place.

Well, it's an anime, so it's to be expected, but if you need an explanation you could easily imagine munitions or fuel somehow igniting when a ship is cut clean through.

which is better, the original OVA or the TV adaptation?

I've never heard or seen anyone recommend the TV show over the OVAs. The TV is literally just a cut up version of the OVA to make it fit TV timeslots after they needed something to fill an empty slot at the last second when they cancelled a really underperforming show. It doesn't add or change anything, beyond a long OP and Ed with recaps to help fill time.
OVA. Like >>16284637 said. The TV series is the same thing only with messed up episode pacing and a handful of tiny animation changes.

Or how about better flight characteristics?

>"Everyone who flew it spun it at least once. You’d be in a separation maneuver at 1.4 and the nose would start searching from side to side. The stab-aug was terrible – although it was faster than anything we had, you weren’t ever comfortable.

>"At Red Flag in the 1970s we were told that the MiG-23 would sweep its wings [forward] and kill you. Ron Iverson [4477th operations officer 1975-79, retired as a Lt Gen] flew one of the first ones. He said, “don’t worry about it -- most of the time it’s trying to kill me”.

Going fast mattered most for the F-15.
Well specifically going fast with fuckmassive thrust, because that let the Eagle gain altitude when assuming its combat position and dictate the flow of battle by choosing when and where to leverage its altitude advantage for bursts of speed swooping down on shit.
Going fast is more the Mig-25's style. The F-15 program dropped the early requirement for Mach 3 in favor of other qualities, like maneuverability and cost.
Yeah but speed is literally the Eagle's asset.

It's not built to intercept in a straight line like the Foxbat, but it's meant to leverage its greater-than-one thrust to weight ratio as much as possible.

Climbs, turns, everything the Eagle does it wants to do it while traveling faster than the other guy, because that speed, or perhaps more accurately the energy linked to that speed (or perhaps even more accurately, the thrust and energy linked to that thrust), was a crucial design aspect as per E-M theory and the whole Boyd school of aircraft philosophy.

It seems like they'd be one of the companies to know that
This, I'm honestly not surprised that Bandai isn't doing this while smaller, newer companies are. Bandai is a huge, long lasting Japanese corporation; that means the people in charge of making decisions are inflexible and not willing to take chances and probably still use cheques and fax machines for everything.
>You're a poorfag because you don't want to pay double the price for no real reason.

I could buy a new house with cash and fill it with P-Bandai with what's in my personal account alone, but I wouldn't because they're right. It is ridiculous in this day and age and inconvenient for me. It's a bad business practice that has negative impact on the customer, ie me. Why should I reward that behavior? Just because you can afford to buy something doesn't mean it's sensible to buy it. And if you actually are rich, you'd understand that.

Yes, but the games are better, and the anime is much more worthwhile if you've already played them.
