This board owes its creation to Destiny, it is indeed a nostalgic period of time.

What's the average age of the people in /m?

I think we skew older than most boards.
>Some say the bulk of the money went into the cast and soundtrack. Sounds like a BS explanation to me, but that's the only one I've heard.
Hm... maybe that budget includes marketing? I heard that one of the reasons why SEED exploded in Japan was due to a heavy marketing push.
All Gundam shows generally have a large marketing campaign. With the The Witch from Mercury have started now with the title and it's a show that will start next year.

Besides Amuro and Bright, what happened to the White Base crew after the events of Zeta. Like during Chars Counterattack, he’s going to drop Axis on Earth, couldn’t Sayla have been there? He might’ve killed her?

What if he didn't die after the crash
God Kai becomes such an omega chad over time. He's like super James Bond with a whip, channeling his mistrust in authority into having dirt on fucking everyone for when its needed.

I could have seen Ryu continue to work with Bright as his right hand man, probably follow him to the AEUG and assuming he lived through that, join Londo Bell as a Ra Calium bridge officer.

So if he survived, he had plenty of time to die other times (though to be fair, he was pretty good at staying alive if it weren't for the fact he had to carry the brat squad through their roughest days. Maybe once everyone learned to carry themselves better he'd stand more of a chance.)

Pretty much this. I personally like to think that Sayla does a lot behind the scenes, even if she chooses to stay away from both direct war and politics. If it were all done all over again I'd really like it if Sayla played a more direct role in things afterwards.

Something kinda worth remembering is that Sayla shared the gold Char gave to her so she could desert and live in comfort with I must assume at least the White Base bridge crew, so generally speaking unless otherwise shown in another series like Katz and Hayato's fates that they're at least living comfortably.
>Said to have a cameo in Unicorn, haven’t seen it yet.
I don't remember that, they did appear in the Last Sun manga though.

For all we know millions of years have passed aliens are long gone and robots were just going with their routine.
There was a twilight episode with similar premise.

I want robots that can kill 100 feet spiders and fight in space wars, not metallic cotton pickers and button pushers.
We already have metallic cotton pickers and button pushers. Did you forget that combine harvesters and software agents exist?
Yeah that's my point, why worry about "oh but they are humanoid now!!!"?
Because they look like corpses, which we human have been genetically programmed to avoid.
I love how sensationalist OP is.

It's a fucking cable actuated hand. A WHOLE lot of improvement is needed when actuating the hand takes ups all the space in the forearm. Plus whatever hardware is offscreen. Shit doesn't even have a functioning wrist. /yawn

Anyone know of a good UC chronology which shows when each episode/movie happens in chronological order? Already seen them all, but I’m planning on doing a full chronological watch through when I get a 4K screen
>I’m planning on doing a full chronological watch through when I get a 4K screen

This sounds like a massive headache.

Watching 0080 somewhere toward the end of 0079 is a massive gear shift, as is watching 0083 before Zeta. The chronology is basically made up as it goes.

is right but I like this idea OP
just bring a neck brace for the whiplash.

I dont know of anywhere that has a good chronology listed like that though I think the gundam wiki has a chronology of events you could probably use to figure it out.

without doing the full episode/date research, it seems like it would be
>MS Igloo (The first 3 eps)
>079 (first movie)
>08th MS team (stop before ep 9)
>08th MS team: miller's report
>08th MS team (ep 9)
>08th MS team blu-ray ep (where they fight the flight type gouf on the bridge)
>the rest of 08th MS team

C'mon now no skimping.
I'd exclude Thunderbolt since its considered Alt-UC, but its up to OP how stringent his canonical requirements are.

origin and thunderbolt both fit into regular UC pretty well. Like yea theres the few differences that cause them to be considered AU
but overall they are still pretty much UC and fit into the timeline fine as long as you're willing to suspend disbelief about why certain groups/events/mobile suits never get brought up again or seem too advanced for the era.

Why does it look so good?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
It seemed to depend on who's drawing it for me. Sometimes it looks sort of...eh. Kinda blocky and unremarkable. Othertimes it looks awesome, beefy but slick and mean.

I'll always favor FAZZ though, either the Sentinel glass cannons or the "completed" one from the series. But that might just be my bias because I used it a lot in Gundam Battle Assault (Or The Battlemaster) which was my first exposure to Gundam anything way back.
Why would Anaheim design and build such a ridiculously complex machine?

Besides the Origin, which other UC Gundam mangas are worth reading?

just put "AI upscaled" in the filename so less people bitch about it, don't bother with storytimes.


Did they really remove ALL the back issues? I haven't checked in a while so I missed sections 89 to 91. FUCKING WHY. They left them up for YEARS.
I went ahead and threw all the un upscaled originals I had into that folder if anyone here wants the back issues since they've apparently been nuked.

I haven't tried >>20242454 release but it seems like he plans on updating it once the next section comes out. I hope he wasn't lazy like me and noticed that they were getting rid of back issues.

Sorry for veering off topic for so many posts but I'm really booty blasted about this now.
no worries
Man the use of colors to convey emotion in Origin's manga is so damn good.

Like if Char's in a green panel, you know some sneakiness and scheming's going down without a word.
