The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread Mk IV

Post by Chris » Tue Feb 28, 2012 9:59 am

You all know the rules: don't be jerks, etc. And for god's sake, can we have a thread that DOESN'T mention "loveless marriage" or Gendo? Get over it, folks.

Last time......

*munches on chocolate bar for emphasis* So yeah, anyone else notice how similar Khonos and Zeydra are? *munches on chocolate bar for emphasis* I wonder if they are sister suits or something. *munches on chocolate bar for emphasis* I mean I do find it odd that Khronos is not in the OP while Zeydra has been since the arc began. *munches on chocolate bar for emphasis* It could be a foreshadowing of something super spoilery like more main character deaths or something. *munches on chocolate bar for emphasis* And given how long the last arc was there is a good chance Kio's story will start around episode 31 or so. *munches on chocolate bar for emphasis* I wonder if enough character development will happen by that time; probably will. *munches on chocolate bar for emphasis*

Yeah, I noticed; the torso and head sections are identical, and the limbs are similar except the Khronos's are bigger. It's also pretty obvious just from each machine's respective pilot.

As for Khronos not being in the OP, I personally don't find it odd at all - Asem's the main character of this arc, and his primary rival is Zeheart - hence the emphasis on the Zeydra.
Pretty awesome episode overall; very heavy on the Char-ness, which was pretty obvious. I do also like that there's a purpose to the mask, silly as it is.
And I still hate Decil.

[*]Munches on a brownie for emphasis[*] This is why I love this forum. You can munch on anything you want without someone complaining. Ah, Stoller Guavaran, what a mad craze you have started. [*]Munches on a brownie for empasis[*]
I say he is the most influential character so far, with a devoted fan club devouring chocolate snacks. I would bet he has invested heavily in the chocolate goodies stock.

*munches on Hershey* It may not be in the OP *munches* but at least its in the short narrative scene before the OP *munches*. As far as their relation goes, the speculation that dgc and zgc refer to Desil Gallete Custom and Zehart Gallete Custom respectively might suggest the possibility that each of them are specialized custom of the same base design. *munches*

I may be fast now, but I'm going to be wayy slower once this thread is over at this rate.

I wonder what makes Desil and Zehart so special to begin with; either way chances are their ghosts will come back and attack poor Kio once he's on the scene....

And come to think of it, this is supposed to be over a century, right? Asemu's arc is around 40-41 AG while Flit was born at 1 AG, his parents died at 8 AG (or was it 7?), and his arc is at 15 AG. Kio is the youngest of the hero trio at 13 if I remember correctly and given how people normally get married around 25, that would set his arc around the mid 60s AG. That's not a century, that's several decades. I'm guessing this will happen from one of three ways, only the first two are logical.

1. Asemu or Kio get cold sleeped like the Vagans do.

2. Time travel through a wormhole or some sort of super technology the Vagans develop.

3. Romary does not ................. well, you can imagine, for about 35-40 years.

I think you might be taking the whole century of fighting thing a bit too literally. There have been conflicts in history like the Hundred Years' War that lasted longer than 100 years. The century of fighting could just refer to the AG 100s collectively, not the entire 100 years of it. You're also off a century since the war starts in AG 101, not 1.

You know just because Kio is the last arc of the series doesn't actually mean that it will end when he's only 13 years old.

It would be interesting to see a surprise time-skip during Kio's arc. Hm, so would that mean a surprise AGE-4? Probably not, otherwise we would surely have heard about it.

I still wonder about Asemu's stealth sister. There must be reason for bringing her in, if nothing else than to tease us with the possibility of another blood heir for the Asuno line.

I doubt it; it would probably be something more subtle, like a short jump forward by a couple of years at the most; kind of like what we saw with Asem early on, where one episode he's in HS or whatever, and the next episode over a year's gone by and he's just graduating.

Don't be silly, if they bring a character like that it will most likely be Kio and his cousin piloting two regular Age System mobile suits and combine into Age-3 Gundam while yelling something like "YATTE YARUZE!". :P

Honestly, I am of the opinion that she's just there to broaden the Flit immediate family makeup. People can sometimes have more than one children afterall. Her lack of mention prior to the arc may even suggest how unimportant she is (even Yurin we knew about prior to Flit's chapter starting).

That being said, she'll likely have children in the future to broaden the family more but unlikely they'll be heirs to the AGE System since that will go on to Asemu's line and his decendents.

I was under the impression that the creators saw that there was porn of Riria up on Pixiv within hours of her debut and went "Oh Jesus...!" and decided they'd hide the fact Flit would have a daughter until the episode aired.

Seriously, we know they look at fan stuff. How depressing must it be to see that THAT is the response to the characters you put time and effort into creating?

Good grief. If I were them I would lose my will to keep designing characters.

I honestly cannot believe that they would be surprised by that, or be bothered by it. Stuff like that is pretty commonplace for Pixiv and has most probably been going on for a long time now. I mean, you don't exactly have to look long and hard on the site to find explicit images of Puru and Puru Two.

If anything, I'd say it's more likely that they never showed anything relating to Unoa before the first episode because, well, maybe she's just that unimportant? People are theorizing that Decil might go after her later, but for now that's all they are, just theories.

Why is there a discussion of rule 34 pictures here over a minor character that doesn't even really speak? And who's Riria? Isn't Flit's daughter named Unoa?
