Re: New SEED Astray manga to run on Gundam Ace

Nope sorry Antares I am too much a fan of the Cosmic Era to let it go like that. This I do admit is mostly due to it being the one anime that help me entrench myself into anime in general and the first show I actually watched through the entire series. With the recent hype over the Movie, and now t...

Re: What is the final word on Cosmic Era beam technology?

Now, the hypothetical presence of either a precursor to beam shield technology or a Geschmeidig Panzer-esque system on that shield only addresses the first of those points - if such a thing is present(and that's IF), then it could address the green "flash" being more than simple Rule of Cool in act...

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

That usually doesn't mean much. If it's pornography it would outright say it. Even if it was you're still allowed to name it, just don't link to it. Weeeell ANN listed it as erotica, and although it pushed pretty much to the edge of that particular genre, it was never classified as hentai (which I ...

Re: What is the final word on Cosmic Era beam technology?

What's wrong with trying to make a bad design good? :) Because there was so much wrong with GSD that a revamped Destiny would hardly put a dent in it? :mrgreen: But to be fair, we've all been there, ranting at the TV when what we saw unfold... uh, unfolded.

Re: What is the final word on Cosmic Era beam technology?

Drats, on both counts. :D I confirm the linkage with the adapter going in to replace the mag. Once more CE manages to amaze me: a beam submachine gun that uses batteries like ammo. It's... a novel idea. With the swords, I don't recall previously hearing that they'd have lasers, but I do bow to your ...

Points to ShadowCell for the laughs. :D
I've let go of CE, and fondly revisit it only in memories. The makers of that timeline could just let it drift off to sleep. Just let it go (cue Frozen).

Re: Yuri and Yaoi

My personal experience of Japanese culture would agree with what has been said before: in terms of rights to sexual minorities, Japan has been lagging behind. Heck, there is still considerable pushback even against women who refuse the traditional housewife roles (which men, in turn, are pressured b...

Re: What is the final word on Cosmic Era beam technology?

I'm throwing a few ideas into the ring after reading this discussion, because CE beam weapons have been a topic of discussion, debate and despair here from the start of GS . :mrgreen: I dislike the level of argumentation by the YouTube poster (Whacky) already. And he seems to be taking this way too ...

Re: Kung Fury Music Video

Not really mecha, but I suppose this falls into the general cultural theme we deal with here. The full "movie" Kung Fury is also available on YouTube for those interested. If you're a kid of the 80s, I can promise a few chuckles in it. It is extremely silly (or outright stupid), featuring cop-movie ...

Re: Captain America: Civil War

I hope its good. It's one of the better storyarchs Marvel managed, dealing with very real geopolitical issues at the time (and some might argue that still persist today, but rules say "no politics" :P ) and extrapolating them to the comics. I'm a bit concerned, though, that very few of the Marvel mo...

Re: This seemed like a weird CE related ship oversight

Yeah I would also suggest that it was a combination of lost prestige for the Archangel (wasn't it constructed at least partially with Orb's backing, which might not have been as forthcoming between GS and GSD). Seeing as how a good half of their space fleet was wiped out, maybe the effort of reconst...

Re: Legend of the Galactic Heroes to get a new anime.

Seeing as how I consider LoGH one of the finest sci-fi epics over all media genres, the new series will have a lot to answer for. I haven't even found a proper new space-faring sci-fi epic since BSG/Caprica . With the remake, the potential surely is there, so a lot hangs on the execution of the mate...

Re: Sherlock Season 3

My biggest problem with season 2 was the mishandling of Irene Adler (mostly how I wish she actually outsmarted Sherlock and was less sexualized) I've heard that from a couple of women and it's very interesting how that is divided along gender lines. Or maybe not interesting but predictable. For my ...

I've been missing SEED and good retellings of it, so I'll be more than happy to give your storyline another go.

Re: Legend of the Galactic Heroes to get a new anime.

Must... not... get... hopes too up. Because Tytania was a disaster in all too many ways. But if this happens, I will be a happy camper. Even the universe of LoGH is so interesting that I don't mind at all that they do a retelling with new characters. Or whatever they do; they said it's not a remake ...
