Epyon's battle theme and the seaside stage theme still get stuck in my head even 20+ years later. They really did some superb work with the soundtrack
Vayeate/Mercurius stage for me (because they were bullshit).

Some obscure sci-fi my pa read that had humanoid robots on the cover art. I can't find the book, but I know it existed.
We drew the robot together and we colored it black-green instead (originally it was reddish). The drawing exists somewhere and if memory serves me right, it looks almost like a green Psycho Gundam with a more angular head.

It could have been stolen art for late 80s commie sci-fi novels.

Funny you should say that, since I think the Dolphin in-show was one of the most underappreciated crafts out of all the tech featured therein.

Forgot my image.

I don't think I've ever watched a show were 99% of the cast, didn't effect the outcome of the series. Treize Khushrenada was the only character that kept things moving, and all in all he was a good guy. The Gundam piolts accomplished absolutely nothing, you could say that it was commentary on the outcome of freedom-fighters, but the show isn't written that intelligently.

> Treize is hidden away in his mansion away from the enemy bases.

Which makes it harder to claim we know for certain he didn't go crazy, given that he doesn't even appear to have left his base to join an active battlefield at any point when testing it. It's entirely possible he tested it with the Epyon System not even connected to the Epyon itself; just sat in a chair in his mansion with a headset on. He could have tripped all the balls he wanted at that point, and no-one outside the mansion would ever know.
Heero and Quatre's craziness weren't that different. Quatre destroyed a small asteroid base and two empty colonies because he thought he should start considering the colonies to be his enemies if they started arming themselves. Heero was muttering about anyone having weapons being his enemy when he got loose inside the lunar base.

Trant mostly resisted going crazy but he was much more aggressive due to the Zero system. In the end the system still overwhelmed his mind but instead of going crazy he has an aneurysm while in the cockpit or something else similar that rendered him brain dead.

He wanted to play the villain part to a complete and utter end, apparently. Then he can disappear and pretend to be dead so everyone can blame the evils of the war on a dead man who can then be filed away into the history books to be a lesson for the future or some stupid shit like that. It's easier on humanity to pin their sins on a scapegoat and then move on to become better or some bullshit like that instead of humanity recognizing that it's responsible for its own shit.

The biggest evidence of Treize and Zechs being in cahoots with each other mentally would have been the moment when Libra begins moving around the battlefield to get on a course to Earth. They start talking to each other as if they can hear each other, even though the radio's not on.

This is the best GW headcanon ive read so far
Quatre snapped before he built Zero. He snapped when his dad died. That was what caused him to consider the colonies his enemies. Not the Zero System.
He shot Peacemillion with the twinbuster rifle after going crazy using the zero system.

We really need more series with non humanoid mechas.

HO has one of the best mecha designs around. They are designed to be functional not look cool.
Heavy Object is shit though I do agree with your statement.

That's because fictional spider-tank are still made to look cool or at least peculiar and artist are rarely engineers.
If I could draw to save my life I would make you a mecha-tank that actually look like it can surpass a tank in every way, if we could build legs like in your pic. It would even have a design that's rarely ever seen.

Easier to turn around in constrained environment, which is everything a city is.

Too bad they look neither cool or functional.
It's easy to claim it's functional when your ball of guns magically move over any terrain for the battle of the week.
With that logic hover-tank and antigravity warship are all functional, even mecha with high-heels.

I concede that it is "original" to be that lazy.
That's a lot of buttons and diagrams. How does one pilot manage all that during battle? This seems like the mech should have at least two pilots. Or at least a co-pilot.

By the way, does anyone know how the song that sounds when Canalo makes his cool entrance is called and/or who sings it?
Can we please get him on main action director again? Even if the plot isn't fantastic this carries it enough for me.
It really does. Sakamoto's directing is so dynamic and exciting and it really elevates the pretty bland overall story.
Let's be honest. Koh should be dead after taking a powered Gaisorg slash without his spandex on.

It's not on any version of Nyaa. Kagura's release of Yamato 2199 is, but that's a different series.
If you think acting like you're full of shit will make me mad enough to spoonfeed you just to prove you wrong, (You)'re sadly mistaken. All you had to do was asking normally
I don't know what you're saying. If you know where I can find this release then please tell me, I really want to preserve it.
Ah I see now, I was searching for subbed releases and this is RAW. I guess I'll sub it myself

They fell for the "making Toku is cheap and easy" meme
It also had a female be the leader
Swinton was the MVP though.
Toku is cheap. But it's not easy to do well.

Thankfully American companies learned how.

The CW makes so much American Toku now with Titans, Flash, Green Arrow, etc

Why are all of the anime adaptations of this so shit?
>Why are all of the anime adaptations of this so shit?

Because the manga as well drawn as it is, is to put it mildly pretty chaotic. Plus the fact the story was never completed adds to the narrative confusion. There are too many things that are left unsaid or never fully explored in the manga so of course any anime adaptation if it wants to tell a coherent story will need to distance itself from the manga.

Weird to think that there was this cool Gundam manga that was basically everything everyone wanted out of Gundam, and nobody even knew it existed until it got that weird 4 episode anime, to the extent that the manga didn't even really have a translation.

Pretty sure people did know about and discuss it from recollection, even if it wasn't being translated. Not a lot of Gundam manga get translations anyway. It's also not what everyone wanted. It's what a vocal contingent profess to wanting (which doesn't mean they'll actually like it), but that doesn't make it everyone.
