Re: Ecole Du Ciel

Wow, just my luck to learn there's a few more volumes for me to get AFTER they go bust and retreat to facebook. :/
Cheers.

Ecole Du Ciel

Alrighty, this is a quick question, very easily answered. I am in England, over here the manga of Ecole Du Ciel is released and translated by Tokyopop. However, in all the years i've been looking at it, it's not gone past Volume 5. And recently, they've shut down their US operations, IIRC. I was jus...

Re: Your Choice of a Gundam Sequel

How would people feel about Retcons? For example, I felt a lot of destiny was poorly written and suffered from popularity polls and attempts to make merchandise shift better rather than actual story. A replacement sequel to seed that over-writes this, with or without new designs and characters would...

Re: Your Choice of a Gundam Sequel

I'd like to see a ZZ era side-story. Perhaps one that'd reference the original but lack the silliness and MAKE IT to being translated into English.

Re: GP03 question

It could be survivability and versatility as an issue. A large mobile armor, sufficiently damaged, would be out for the count and easy pickings. With an ejectable fully-functional MS at it's core, the GP03 is capable of abandoning it's armoured bulk if it takes too much damage to be of use, or if it...

Re: Operation Stardust

It's been a while since I watched it, but what civillians did they kill during this Operation? On-screen, we see Gato infiltrate a military base and steal a Mobile Suit, no civillians here. Then we have him escape into space, again only military targets on both sides are lost. The nuke of the space ...

Re: PSN information leaked. have you check your credit card

Checked my balance before you mentioned that data is secure. All is well. I'm honestly not missing the PSN anyway. I have no PSN friends I actually play any games with as it is, even if I did, the amount of time I have to play those games is minute. :P I can't remember what sort of data PSN wanted w...

Re: Help me pick a game to import

You know, I promptly forgot that the PS3 can play import PS3 games the moment I bought the thing. Looking at 0081's videos, it looks like it rips off Crossfire/Target In Sight's engine. This is good for the graphics and controls, but bad if they haven't improved the AI over that release as 90% of th...

Re: Operation Stardust

I don't think Delaz intended to re-establish Zeon as a power. None of his actions aided in this. In fact, due to the almost complete losses they faced, the remaining Zeon after this were even more scarce. As a one-hit wonder to deal damage to the Federation and shake things up, it was a great plan. ...

Re: Operation Stardust

Irwin : I understand how the average Zeon citizen could be duped into the One Year War. Gihren was a master manipulator par excellence. My major beef with Zeon, as a whole, is that people continue listening to anything he or his legacy have to say. It's sometimes difficult. While I agree that post-...

Re: Operation Stardust

Woah woah woah, guys, let's keep it clean, ey? Not all of Zeon's soldiers support the Zabis or their ideals. Since 0058, seccession from the Federation was the goal of the Republic. It wasn't until a whole decade later that Zeon Zum Deikun died, and in was 0069 in which the Principality was formed. ...

Re: Operation Stardust

Oh drat, that's something I was never fortunate enough to get my hands on. Also, starving the population of Earth/ forcing the Earth to become dependant upon the colonies seems like a much more noble reason to join a suicidal operation than just killing a bit of corn or simply proving a point about ...

Re: Operation Stardust

So... My initial conclusion that Operation Stardust's target was corn... was right? It's a shame they never mention the economic impact the operation had, just watching the show really isn't enough. Oh, as someone mentioned Cima's backstory was explained outside of the series, what's the name of tha...

Re: Operation Stardust

Kirby - If they were trying to prove a point, why was Jaburo NOT their target? They wiped out two thirds (or was it one?) of the federation's space fleet with Gato's nuclear attack and then went on to deliver smaller blows as they escorted the colony to Earth. I could imagine that taking out two thi...

Operation Stardust

Forgive the sheer idiocity of this, i've seen that you're used to in-depth questions about force sizes, composition and all the rest of it, so this might seem very, very dim-witted on my part by comparison. Just what was the TARGET in Operation Stardust? I have watched 0083 several times and each ti...
