Re: Time Needed to Finish a Space Colony

It's probably best not to use the Olympics as a firm data point given that they've been canceled before due to world wars or most recently delayed by COVID. There could conceivably be more such cancelations/delays in pre-UC history, so we don't really have any way of knowing for sure that the 52nd ...

Re: Time Needed to Finish a Space Colony

Given the circumstances it seems as though colony construction probably happens quicker that would practically happen in real life(maybe 3-5 years?). If they were six colony clusters with forty colonies each( Side 7 was the newest), then that would equate to roughly 240 colonies across the Earth Sp...

Re: Time Needed to Finish a Space Colony

How long does it take to even build a space colony anyway? It'd help if we had a firm statement as to what year UC0001 corresponded to. There are a couple different details that can be used to approximate it, but they all produce different answers. Like Side 1 Bunch 1 Shangri-La having been selecte...

Re: Air Cavalry Chronicles

Thanks that makes alot of sense story wise. I read a Kawamori interview about Advanced Valkyrie where it says: Kawamori wanted to move on from Macross (this was as early as 1985), [...] Yeah, that was also the reason that Kawamori was not involved in Macross II: Lovers Again . He declined, as he wa...

Re: Air Cavalry Chronicles

Is their any information out there on this series? It was a "Design" Series, but was there a story that was written for it? The story developed for the Air Cavalry Chronicles design series was an early draft of the story that would be used for The Vision of Escaflowne . It hadn't yet made the jump ...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Didn't similar reactions occur after some wars in real life, like the South after the Civil War, or Germany following WWI? Of course, in both of those case the elements of historical revisionism and propaganda were strong. Well, yes... but it's worth noting that, in those cases, that kind of thing ...

Oh yeah, the peace negotiation things. I could already see how the writers might branch out to Windermere's domestic affairs and show how their society reacted to defeat. Windermere IV's government is a monarchy... either an absolute monarchy or a fairly weak constitutional monarchy in which the mo...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

With the next Detla movie revealed, do you have any expectation to it? Only what we've been told... that it'll be an all-new story, rather than a continuation of the previous one. We know that a descendant ofthe VF-14 might appear, but what other VF might appear? Given how little effort was put int...

Re: Kou uraki after 0083?

It is kinda odd that we never see any of the characters from side stories again. Granted aside from Kou And Christina there's not that many who would still be in the military come later wars. I know many of the side stories came out after the series their tied to, but they could still cameo in newe...

Re: Kou uraki after 0083?

Give him a spinoff/side story manga... Kou's Deleted Affair . It's just 14 volumes of him staring down a plate of carrots. That's a great idea, because if each volume is a year starting on 0084(which he got released) he would have just missed Unicorn and Narrative. The more I think about this, the ...

Thats sad. They really should put him in something. Maybe during CCA? Or the events of unicorn?

Re: Kou uraki after 0083?

Whatever happened to him after stardust memory? After he got out of jail, nothing else happened with his character. AFAIK, nothing. He was assigned to Oakley Base in North America, where Keith, Mora, and Nina all were and that's the last we hear of him. Presumably he did not join the Titans the way...

Re: State of the Mecha Genre

Long running joke of true hardcore fans behaviour in Japan: Buy 3 sets of everything, 1 for use/to play with/read/watch, 1 for lending to friends to spread the gospel and 1 for keeping as a collection item/back-up. One can buy 4 to separate the back-up item. Half the reason it's so funny is because...

Re: Axis Zeon, iconography, and popular support

Does anyone here feel like there is a marketing dimension to the design of Axis Zeon mobile suits? I mean, there are MS like the Zaku III, Dreissen, R-Jarja, Gazu-L and -R that directly recalls OYW units. On one hand, that is because these new MS evolved from their old predecessors, but it also giv...

I've browsed through the wiki and viewed many mobile suits, but I always felt the gelgoogs legacy after the oyw has been treated poorly. History seldom remember the losers fondly. Thoughts?
