I think you quoted the wrong anon. I think you want >>17172381

But that aside, it's in theory feasible to have a single species with cross compatibility, it's just a matter of bioengineering, at that level of technology that's no different from the concept of uploading human mind in various artificial bodies with software to adapt your mind to any new hardware.
Of course this isn't what the Hideauze are because they don't have that level of control over their bodies. They left it to evolution and evolution made them beast.

>The GA was willing to let them have the Sol system and fuck off to colonize the galaxy. The Evolvers chose to chase after them and keep fighting for supremacy.
Please, just like you said the GA left because they couldn't win easily and hoped they could come back later with amazing tech to eradicate the Evolver and claim back Earth.
If they were so "pacifist" why would they self-destruct their way out in the first place?

This, the early Hideauze were human-level intelligence and had human-culture. Their child however are born with no knowledge of ever being weak, needing food, only protecting their hives and we can assume, intelligent enough to not overpopulate.
However, since it's so hard to kill them, they aren't motivated and organized enough to invent their own space-gate.

I think the footage from the REM sequence comes from an attack on Avalon that damaged some of its islands, but didn't destroy the whole thing. Avalon is fucking MASSIVE, it can have taken that level of damage to some of its sections and still be just fine.

>>17174855 might also be right with the colony idea. We know that humanity in space has split up at least a little bit, because wandering tribes exist. So not everything is centered on Avalon.

I already debunked this shit. Even if you could magically do that, they would still eventually diverge due to living away from each other in vastly different environments. It would happen sooner or later. Give up, you don't know shit about biology.

I just finished watching this AICO show, I felt there was too much information throwed at you in the first episodes and even by the middle I didn't care much for the technobabble parts, but damn, the climax on the final episodes were great, it has a very dramatic character driven twist and by the end I was caring for all the characters and sad that the series was over.

You probably won't see it on a "best of all time list", but it sure is an honest story that does a good job on keeping it's premise.

Completed this recently. Was this Sonoda's attempt at making a deconstruction like Evangelion? Getting back at Anno because Gainax shit on him? Just trying to be edgy? Ultimately its one of the most depressing manga I have ever read. Anyone else here read it?

sonoda did mecha?

Yes, even before this. Check out Gall Force.
They sure gave no fucks about collateral damage, even the dude's pistol was some absurd railgun thing that fucked up a load of people in the area from it just being fired a few times at a drone.
In all fairness, Sonoda's early, amateur work was all about androids, powered armor & other mecha. Also girls cooking guys still in their powered armor for food.

Gundam Ace

Have always wanted to know since finishing the series.

Does the Unicorn Gundam hold up for many as a classic mecha design nowadays? Does /m/ consider or regard it as an iconic modern design currently? Or do you feel it's just either overrated or just doesn't do enough for you to consider it so?

It just feels like out of the last 10 years nothing has come this close to being this universally iconic for me.

When the Moon Race first attack and then some time later
I'm gonna get shit on this, but it's fantastic as the final descendant of the RX-78-2. And seeing as how it energized the franchise, I think it should be regarded among the classics.

At the holy shit overpowered levels in SRW though?


Its basically the RX as envisioned by tech 5000 years later.
Not really. It looks like the most generic gundam ever, but with Tron lines.
I think as far aesthetics go, it looks amazing, the two tone color scheme works great, and the green color ver, looks way better in my opinion. However, the show (and bandai) did it a disservice by reusing it too much. The banshee being the main antagonist would have made it more acceptable, but in the end, the series just kinda ignored the, in favor of the neo zeong and even then it wasn't a real mech battle. If it had been in a one-off like the turn A, this board would have a different opinion on it.

I'll admit I haven't read much pulp yet, and I mainly just like the aesthetic, but the pulp stuff I have read is pretty good.

Conan (not really SF, but well known) is really good, and better than the pastiche cliche version of Conan every one has in their heads, and at times Id argue Howard's writing rivals Tolkein's. Burroughs Sword and Planet stuff seems a little trite in the modern era, but parts of it still really hold up well. The vast majority of the dialog is awkward, but then every so often you get some great speeches or monologues. E.E. Doc Smith seems to be like or hate writer. I recently read Skylark of Space, and Sky-Lark 3, and lensmen ages better, the prose is extremely clunky and the dialogue is not only filled with dated slang, but really weird. On the other hand it's filled with big ideas, and there is a sense of constantly escalating scale.

Though the real meat of the pulps is in the short stories, and admittedly I haven't read much there either. Leigh Brackett's stuff reads like Burroughs with better prose, and taken up to 11. Some of the early Planet Stories stuff I've read was really good as well, lot's of neat sword and planet stuff, but sadly not enough robots. I've got a bunch of Edmond hamilton stuff I want to catch up on.

On the other hand I find that HP Lovecraft is very overrated. His prose is top notch, and borderline poetry, but so much of his stuff is just boring, and I didn't really find it scary or even unnerving. And some of the stuff I read had M. Night level twists
>I saw a scary monster and ran away. Only the scary monster was in a mirror. The scary monster is me! DUN DUN DUN! Granted I gave up on reading his collection before reading any of his Mythos stuff, so I should probably at least finish to get a better handle on his more well known part of his brand.

So I'm playing through Super Robot Wars V, and there's a part where Tessa is summarizing what they've learned so far about events in the Red Sea Earth dimension. And she talks about how the One Year War was fundamentally about spacenoid independence.

This is just wrong. Is this seriously how the Japanese view the story of the original Gundam? My take away was always that there were genuine spacenoid grievances, but that the Zabi family hijacked these ideas to wage an insane war of conquest. They literally open the war by massacring spacenoids who don't side with them and dropping their homes on earth.

There is this thing that always makes me perplexed: How aware the people in Zeon are about Operation British? Even if every single citizen was a diehard for spacenoid independence, they would had felt some kind of revulsion over the fact that their country had just committed genocide. My take is that the propaganda machine glossed over a lot of the "details".
>Why is Zeon the most popular faction among the Japanese?

same reason a lot of things are popular.
they came first and all others that come before them are judged on how they compare to the first.
>Their wars have been detached from any larger political context, basically. A bunch of these diehards, especially left over forces on Earth, get wiped out over the course of the story
This is best exemplified even earlier with the African remnants in ZZ.
>Kycilia is caught between loyalty to her father

Are we talking about the same Origin that has Kycillia leak Great Degwin's route to Gihren so he knows where to fire the Solar Ray then uses that as a pretext to kill him and launch a coup (whereas in 0079 it was more of a spur of the moment thing borne out of disgust with Gihren's patricide). If anything Origin actually makes Kycillia an explicitly evil, manipulative, bitch.
If nothing else, given that it was ultimately a failure, propaganda probably covered it very loosely or not at all. Had it actually succeeded they probably would have presented it as some brilliant "pinpoint strike on Federation headquarters", glossing over the fact that it would probably have also taken out the entire middle of South America with it.

This raises the question of how they sell how things actually played out to the public. It's kind of hard to miss the giant hole in Australia. I suppose since Side 3 is on the other side of the moon they don't have to worry about people just looking up and seeing Earth. But information must be massively controlled, given how easy it should be for a returning soldier or someone from another colony to smuggle in a picture (and that's not even factoring in some kind of space internet between the colonies).

The Plot to Assassinate Gihren seems to be one of the few stories that actually presents the Principality as the repressive hellhole it was.

Let's be real: even if he left notes, it would not be a proper end, no matter who did it.
>even if he left notes, it would not be a proper end, no matter who did it.
Exactly. No one can even come close to his unique style of manga. Also, he had been putting Buddhist themes in his manga since the mid 80s.

This is why I'm okay with alt universe takes. Leave the core stuff alone out of respect, but have something for those who want more getter.
I agree. Getter Robo Saga is done. I'd like to see more stories based on it, like Hien and Devolution, and also more reimagings like the OVAs and basically every other Getter work.

Nagano. He wasn't happy with the film. And most of us would like to see an international release of Gothicmade, just to be able to judge it with our own eyes.

Jeez, that guy has high standards I guess. From what I'm reading he created The Five Star Stories in response to how Tomino handled Heavy Metal L-Gaim. Needless to say, it doesn't look like he was happy with Tomino.

I'd check out Gothicmade. According to Wikipedia he changed the setting and certain terminology in the recent chapters of The Five Star Stories to fit into the Gothicmade setting. People are actually okay with that? Seems ballsy after a few decades of material already out there.

Gothicmade medieval/fantasy?

So did this end up being better than Evangelion or is it just another TRIGGER abortion?

The flag doesn't represent genocide and fascism. It's about spacenoid independence. Get it right, you idiots.
