if it's meme strength and not design you're trying to go after you should be pointing your finger to Kamille and Jadau. One being a mary sue that is goku levels of new type & engineer that only gets humbled because the writer wanted to commit suicide and the other is the typical Shoujo-protagonist using the power of friendship to take on Neo Zeon when the feddies simply refused to act due to greed/indifference

The more i look at UCfags, the more i'm convinced that every UCfags are on copium and refuse to admit they are watching Japanese cartoons about giant robots.

Visuals-wise Unicorn is mostly good aside from the shit CG of the Unicorn itself, it's not helped by the fact that half the time it just floats around and does nothing.
Story-wise though, it's pretty crap. Shit characters with shit motivations are plenty, it has My Immortal tier backstory writing for some characters like Marida, and then it has dumb shit like travelling through time which is unprecedented shit in UC.
I mostly agree that none of Gundam is that bad, but I also think that none of Gundam is that good either. Most other mecha shows and franchises are much better, I think.

>>21041731
That's just gundamfags in general. Maybe if they watched anything aside from Gundam they'd grow out of it. Also using "super" and "real" robot tags just perpetuates that myth further. There really isn't a clear divide. Mazinger Z's abilities aren't really that much more difficult to believe than the RX-78s.

Suppressing the original version of the charter makes no sense in a digital age. We're talking about a document that would have had to go through hundreds, if not thousands, of official channels and would have inevitably found its way online through both those channels and unofficial ones.
And even if the feds did have the power to significantly supress it why the fuck are they so afraid of the original charter leaking when they can just as easily say the "original" is a load of bullshit and there isn't any real way to prove them wrong.
>>
>>21041749
There is only one meaningful place where "real robot" matters, and that's as a shorthand for "upgrade mobility instead of armour" in SRW. (And "can equip additional weapons" in OG)
>>
>>21041820
Every government documents have hidden watermark/digital code to be not mistaken as frauds. The leak of something as fatal as the box can cause absolute chaos, since there will be multiple mini factions rise, civil disturbance and internal purging inside the feds. The box is also a valuable tool for higher ups of Federation who allowed to access the document. They can use the myth around it and the info inside it to manipulate and assume control of other politicans, even the federation itself.

You have to completely ignore G Gundam's entire back story to conclude that any point of UC can lead into FC. FC is only 64 years old at the time of the show and it literally started with individual earth nations establishing space colonies and basically world war 3. It directly contradicts both the UC backstory and timeline.
>>
>>21041791
People who say this tend to be stupid enough to miss the part where the conspiracy was never about the text of the Inclusion Clause, but rather that a bunch of Federation elites conspired to kill off a PM they didn't agree with to begin with, then pinned the blame on disgruntled colonist-migrants. It's hammered in with zero subtlety that anyone who wants to make it about newtypes and a spacenoid destiny denied are out of their goddamned minds.
>>
>>21041844
So why are you here then?
>>
>>21041837
"load of bullshit" in this instance is most likely meaning that Post-OYW Federation could literally just say that the original version of the charter has no modern day baring as it has obviously been revised several times since its original signing. Him talking about there being multiple copies of the original has more to do with the fact that this clause wouldn't be some massive secret at all; some random office server or new article would have a copy of it. Hiding it in a magical box isn't going to keep someone from stumbling across a copy of it when it was first being ratified in some senator's personal files.

It's essentially as if The United States government was trying to hide the original paper version of the Articles of Confederation to suppress the Sovereign Citizens movement because its existence would immediately give them justification for their actions.

Eh, I don't like Unicorn because it essentially outright says that the land Amuro and Lalah saw would never be achieved and humanity will burn itself out through endless bloodshed.
>>
>>21042168
Yeah it is not as easy as you say. Earth Fed is literally every governments on Earth. They absolutely assassinate anyone who they suspect of having the document, or bribe them with some benefits to shut their mouth. Also, i believe in Unicorn, most of the people who were involved, had copies of the document inside the box are all dead. Only Earth Federation has access to documents inside it and has been using it to threaten each others.

Also, this Laplace stuff were not retconed and eventually Earth Fed collapsed by the era of G-Savior.
>>
>>21042212
You greatly underestimate administrative incompetence and greatly overestimate the Federation's ability to keep things secret. As a clerk myself, I've had dozens of sensitive documents get accidentally emailed to me because my name is one letter off from a director in another department. There's literally no way an government that comprises EVERY country on Earth wouldn't constantly have these oopsies. And on that note, an organization that somehow has to time to sweep the entire planet of evidence of a single document (especially in a digital world) and kill anyone even suspected of having a copy sure has a really shitty track record of letting their most important pieces of military hardware get covertly filmed or outright stolen.

The regular Unicorn is a fine design but I can't stand the Banshee. And I don't even want to acknowledge the third one
As for the series itself, it's very flawed but it's fine overall. Even with magic that dwarfs anything UC has done before or since and the weird conspiracy I still think Unicorn's biggest fault is that none of the characters are remotely interesting or likeable save one. It also fixates on the Gundams (and the Zeong) being important a bit too much. I prefer UC mobile suits to just be machines at the end of the day. The Unicorn is supposed to be a modern Grandpa, it invalidates contemporary weapons, but I always got the feeling the show was trying to push a feeling of reverance that was never there for other UC entry Gundams

>>
>>21044177

I think you are, though I have no idea what one because I don't think there are any characters with a brother obsessed with Newtype magic in any UC animated productions, be they TV show, OVA or film. And no, I don't count Char as being obsessed, since it was only ever a superficial goal for him and he constantly uses and results in the deaths of some of the only Newtypes alive without any real introspection or change because of it.

Aina's brother was obsessed with creating a weapon to crack Jaburo he called the Apsalus. Which he had to build out of spare parts in the end because he had lost any support in Zeon for some reason. Which is honestly kind of silly, since he created the most powerful mobile unit bound gun in the entirety of UC Gundam from scraps. There's no other mobile unit use gun in any of UC even remotely as powerful. Not even by the time of Victory Gundam, nearly 100 years later. It cored a mountain using 3 Dom reactors, making it ridiculously efficient on top of overwhelming powerful.
>>
>>21044044
I don't think Unicorn was that over-the-top for UC landscape. Because afterall, CCA, Zeta and ZZ went all out with Newtype magic, meanwhile Unicorn chickened out with every power display it did. This show makes you feel like, it could have been much crazier, but it hold itself back, from something supposed to be extremely crazy to a toned down version of Zeta and ZZ.

You're seriously mentally ill if you think Godcorn turning back time on an entire fleet of jegans is "held back", or the Neo Zeong magically exploding weapons at will and then decaying like it's made of organic matter at the end because Full Frontal gave up. Even the colony laser block, which is the least bullshit power in unicorn, is orders of magnitude more bullshit than anything in Z or ZZ. And NT doubles down on it by making the Phenex FTL and absorbing a magic nuclear reaction that would have destroyed an entire side
>>
>>21044538

> NT doubles down on it by making the Phenex FTL and absorbing a magic nuclear reaction that would have destroyed an entire side

The Phenex is described as going "nearly" the speed of light; not faster than light, and the nuclear reaction itself wouldn't have destroyed the entirety of Side 6 going by dialogue; it'd just have destroyed the closest colonies, and the debris from them would have destroyed more colonies until the entire Side was destroyed by radiating damage from the closest colonies. A lot of which would then rain down on the Earth.
>>
>>21044626
>The Phenex is described as going "nearly" the speed of light
Banagher states they couldn't catch up even going the speed of light when the Phenex flies off at the end.

>and the debris from them would have destroyed more colonies until the entire Side was destroyed by radiating damage from the closest colonies
The simulation clearly shows the blast engulfing side 6 and 1.
>>
>>21044641

> Banagher states they couldn't catch up even going the speed of light when the Phenex flies off at the end.

Banagher is speaking after watching it move with his naked eye and only estimating probability; even then his statement doesn't contradict the idea it's not going FTL, since even moving at the speed of light you won't catch something else that is moving at that same speed. Which, together with the fact he can actually SEE the light of it's passage means it's probably not going faster than light. Hence why most things that depict FTL do so by having the thing going faster than light no longer move in normal space or be visible to people anymore.

When someone aboard the main ship measures the Phenex earlier in the film they state it's "nearly" the speed of light, not at or faster than it.

> The simulation clearly shows the blast engulfing side 6 and 1.

And the text in your own screen cap clearly says "nearby colonies" not "nearby Sides". We see 10 to 15 colonies in the vicinity of the explosion being described in the simulation, but the simulated explosions color is gradually losing intensity even on the zoomed in shot prior to your screencap; meaning the blast might radiate as far as Side 1, but it's not going to be strong enough to destroy anything at that distance going off what the characters say.
>>
>>21044702
>Banagher is speaking after watching it move with his naked eye and only estimating probability
You don't get to disagree with character statements. Not how this works, ever. If a show wants you to disagree it will make that clear to the viewer. This isn't something you get a say in.
>together with the fact he can actually SEE the light of it's passage means
Not how light works either.

>And the text in your own screen cap clearly says "nearby colonies" not "nearby Sides".

It's 19 all of which are indicated as being engulfed in the blast. But the character saying "nearby colonies will be engulfed" doesn't contradict the rest of the simulation which shows two sides being engulfed in the blast radius.
>but it's not going to be strong enough to destroy anything at that distance going off what the characters say.
No, this is just head canon and contradicts the simulation that we're shown, which clearly shows both Side 6 and 1 within the blast radius. The narration doesn't contradict that part at all. What you're saying is that the part of the show is wrong, which you don't have any right to say. The character also says that debris from 3 colonies will rain down on the earth, that doesn't contradict the simulation very clearly showing 19 being destroyed. It means the character narrated only a specific part of the simulation. You're trying to claim the show's information is wrong, which again, you have zero right to make this claim.
>>
>>21044729

> You don't get to disagree with character statements. Not how this works, ever. If a show wants you to disagree it will make that clear to the viewer. This isn't something you get a say in.

Then it's a good thing I'm not doing that, since we also have a character with a computer measuring the Phenex's passage earlier in the film note that it's nearly at the speed of light; not at it or over it. Actually, by that measure, you're the one disagree with what the character is saying by stating that Banagher says it's moving faster than light when all he says is that Jona wouldn't catch it even moving at the speed of light. Which is not the same thing.

> Not how light works either.

No-one knows how light works for objects moving faster than light, but classical Einsteinian doctrine would be that to be moving at lightspeed you'd need to convert all your mass to energy (never mind faster than it) and even using analogues like objects travelling faster than sound or objects moving faster than light in a specific medium would suggest you'd still see them but only after they've already passed you; with your visual coming later the faster they're moving. We see the Phenex as it leaves, and even when we cut back to Banagher and Jona after the Mineva scene, we see it seconds later. So if it was travelling faster than light then it wasn't much faster than it.
>>
> But the character saying "nearby colonies will be engulfed" doesn't contradict the rest of the simulation which shows two sides being engulfed in the blast radius.

On the other hand, it does contradict the blast wave being noticeably less intense as it spreads outward and the wording of "nearby colonies" when referring to entire Sides would be just weird. Technically not actually a contradiction, but definitely an odd choice that minimizes the danger rather than communicating the actual intent.

> No, this is just head canon and contradicts the simulation that we're shown

No, it doesn't. We are shown the blast becoming less intense via the color gradually cooling. Which there's no reason to do if the explosion would destroy everything in it's path. Never mind that the simulation shows the explosion happening the midst of Side 6, but even the extremities of the explosion only travel about half way into the orbital radius of Side 1, and it's the orbital radius of the debris cloud the explosion would create moving through Side 1 that appears to be the larger problem even in the simulation.
>>
>>21044770
>two different scenes is the same feat
I'm not even sure what you're trying to "discuss" here. By your own logic I can easily dismiss it by saying they don't have the instruments on a naval warship to accurately measure something moving at ~light speed speeds because nothing else in their universe does. Sentinel gives ballpark numbers for beams and it's below 10% the speed of light.

>We see the Phenex as it leaves
You have no way of confirming this because you'd still see the projected light from it. And after the cutaway the Phenex very clearly came back to Jonah without the Neo Zeong in tow. It's two completely different continuities. You're not even accurately describing what happened. It even flies back into Jonah's line of vision, as depicted when it flies across his visor.

I don't even see why you bothered commenting on my post when you're even outright lying about what happened in the show.

>>21044771
>We are shown the blast becoming less intense via the color gradually cooling
Okay?
>Which there's no reason to do if the explosion would destroy everything in it's path
You're just inserting more headcanon. The simulation very clearly shows the lowest intensity extremities of the expanding blast are more than enough to destroy a colony completely. It's even consistently color coded for visual convenience.
>>
>>21044827

> By your own logic I can easily dismiss it by saying they don't have the instruments on a naval warship to accurately measure something moving at ~light speed speeds because nothing else in their universe does.

They do have the instruments to measure something moving slower though; which is their assessment.

> You have no way of confirming this because you'd still see the projected light from it.

We do see light projected from the Phenex as it shoots upwards.

> And after the cutaway the Phenex very clearly came back to Jonah without the Neo Zeong in tow.

Why would the Neo Zeong II be in tow when it had just exploded?

> The simulation very clearly shows the lowest intensity extremities of the expanding blast are more than enough to destroy a colony completely.

No, it doesn't. Several of the colonies that explode only explode once 3 or 4 color bands of the simulation have passed over them, and in the case of one of the furthest out colonies it appears to be destroyed because of remnants from other colonies hitting it and not because of the explosion itself.
>>
>>21044538
You don't really get what i meant. No matter the stuff like Unicorn became a timelord or Neo Zeong being the stronkest MS evar! The characters and the story chickened out with its powerlevel promise. Yeah Unicorn units had to be dismantled and achieving Newtype godhood is bad!
Kamile and Judau are more comfortable with their powers. The story narrative didn't antagonize their superpowers.
>>
>>21045063
>Kamile and Judau are more comfortable with their powers.
Kamille turned into a vegetable because he opened up his mind too much and absorbed malice/evil in order to defeat Scirocco. Tomino said so in some interview for one of the Zeta Gundam Historica magazines. Judau also only uses his powers a bit and then runs away to Jupiter to basically isolate himself. Banagher is the most comfortable with his powers. He gave up godhood but he's still a powerful newtype and flies around the planet shouting soredemo. Even without turning into the crystal unicorn he was still blocking most of the colony laser between the Unicorn and its shields. That's more impressive than anything Judau or Kamille ever did and he doesn't end up with mentally illness or become a recluse.
>>
>>21045095

Kamille got better throughout ZZ, and by roughly the 2/3rds point is having psychic conversations with people hundreds of miles away, while guiding them through fights based on precognition. Judau left for Jupiter because he was sick of the Federation's hypocrisy; there's nothing indicating he ever stopped using his powers, or even became less empathic overall.
>>
>>21045095
Banagher already lost his Unicorn Gundam, or you can say, it is traveling somewhere else in limbo and attatching to him spiritually. The narrative of Unicorn series is quite chickened out, unlike Zeta and ZZ where Newtypes can achieve something great permanently without the narrative tells you "cool power is bad!". One of the reason why i still consider Unicorn to be too grounded compares to the other 2.
>>
>>21045095
Kamille snaps because he's the strongest Newtype and his power, particularly channeling the dead, is too much for his body to physically take.

>>
>>21046669
>Banagher already lost his Unicorn Gundam, or you can say, it is traveling somewhere else in limbo and attatching to him spiritually
He didn't lose it. We saw twice that it wasn't actually dismantled and is being kept in storage under mineva's control on Magallanica. So he has both his newtype powers and the Unicorn, and he didn't have to give anything up.

>unlike Zeta and ZZ where Newtypes can achieve something great permanently without the narrative tells you "cool power is bad!"
You didn't watch Zeta or ZZ did you? Kamille developed a mental illness from using his powers. And the only thing he achieved is personally killing Scirocco. The colony laser wiped out the Titans fleet, so he basically crippled himself for personal revenge.

>ZZ
Judau didn't do anything other than kill a virtually powerless Haman who lost most of her forces already and then isolated himself as a result. The civil war already devastated Neo Zeon and took it out of commission.

Compare that to Banagher who magically wins an ideological battle against Char's spirit and makes him kill himself and destroy his wish granting death machine made with technology from beyond the mortal dimension, and then blocks a colony laser, becomes a perfect life form, turns back time on an enemy fleet by himself, and comes back from it and gets to fuck Mineva, cucking Riddhe. He had a perfect victory with no drawbacks or consequences and he got what he wants, to get the girl he's been chasing since the beginning of the show. Unicorn's ending is basically a bond film if the main villain kills himself because Bond is too amazing. Meanwhile Kamille loses Four, most of his friends, and becomes an invalid, and has to experience the full brunt of the misery of a colony drop because he's stuck in a hypersensitive state.
>>
>>21046681
That's from 機動戦士ガンダム ニュータイプ伝説ぴあ a book published by a leisure lifestyle magazine publisher. Fukui said Banagher and Jonah achieved the perfect newtype form. Kamille isn't the strongest by default seeing as he never achieved that. That's just clinging to old statements by Tomino which Sunrise clearly doesn't acknowledge. Feat wise it's plain to see Kamille isn't the strongest.
>>
>>21046681
In fact, a few posts down in your archive.
>>>then Fukui has written that nobody else in the Universal Century except Kamille Bidan has come closer to being a true newtype

>> In "UC", the Unicorn Gundam's fuselage is fused with the soul of Banagher, a human being who is close to a true Newtype, and fully awakens. As a result, the fuselage was able to evolve into its ultimate ideal form, becoming so all-powerful that it could tear apart any weapon. But Banagher didn't like it and came back to the human world with Mineva, that's the general story.

Did you even actually watch Unicorn? He lost his father, Loni and Marida, as well as witnessing a bunch of deaths he didn't want to happen. Hooking up with Mineva was far from his only goal.
>>
>>21046732
>>21046734
Kamille doesn't require Psycoframe or even the Bio Sensor to achieve huge Newtype feats, he does them on his own. Now imagine if he had contact with a Unicorn.
>>
>>21046755
>father
Completely unrelated to his powers and doesn't even occur when he's a newtype or a pilot. If you're going to bring that up then also bring up Kamille's parents both dying, finding the dead colony that got gassed, having to kill any number of his enemies whom he didn't want to, might as well bring up being beat up for by Wong too. I mentioned Kamille's losses that are specifically significant as a newtype because he's sensitive to them and fuel his rage induced final battle with Scirocco.
>Loni
Whom he had zero connection to whatsoever. He didn't lose anyone there. You could maybe make this case for the novelization, where they have a newtype flash of forming a family together, but in the animated continuity they're essentially strangers who have to travel together for a bit and Loni's character is totally rewritten to be inconsequential.
>Marida
She's the only person out of the list he even remotely knows and they still had little interaction. Kamille chases after Four since the moment they meet and it's clear they're in love and her death comes as a direct consequence of their connection because she quite literally takes a beam saber for him. Marida doesn't even die for Banagher, if anything she dies to break the spell over Riddhe because her death clears his mind. You might as well add Daguza to that list too since Banagher got mad over the death of a guy with whom he had an antagonistic relationship almost the entire time.
>well as witnessing a bunch of deaths he didn't want to happen
You're not even making a point here. You're equating the death of strangers to close friends and comrades. The best part is Banagher didn't even know who his dad was until Cardeas just mentions it randomly before dying. By the way, Marida and the other sleeves started the fight and got his classmates killed. Are you going to mention that too even though Banagher forgets about them immediately?
>>
>>21046762
He requires the Zeta Gundam to do so, this isn't even something that needs clarification. Emma outright tells him as she's dying in his arms that the Zeta Gundam has the ability to turn other peoples' souls and will into power. And the key part of this statement is that it's not even Kamille's own power, the power is actually coming from the dead people watching over him in a similar sense to the Axis Shock being a result of concentrated human will. Statements from the show throw a wet towel all over Kamille's newtype feats, because it's not his own ability, it's the Zeta's and it's not his own power, it's the power of other people surrounding him. Banagher, on the other hand, gets a pep talk from Marida's ghost and becomes a god.

Anon, did you forget ZZ?

Telepathy and sensing danger is such a basic newtype ability that even the White Base kids were accurately guiding Amuro through the ruins of A Boa Qu, avoiding danger, from hundreds if not thousands of kilometers away. By that metric would you consider Ezelcant from AGE the strongest newtype? He communicated with Zeheart from Mars.

I actually forgot another one of Fukui's characters. Rita. Not only did she see the colony drop coming like days away so everyone could get to safety. At the ending of NT it's revealed she had seen so far into the future that she plotted everything, as a child, so that she could create the scenario in which she, Jonah, and Michelle could stop the Neo Zeong II. Is Kamille still the strongest newtype? By what metric?

Rita is probably the strongest newtype, considering that she can pilot a mobile suit despite being, y’know, dead.

Bruh, this board is literally stuck in time and still gets upset over decade old shitposts, I'd be fucking embarassed to base my self worth on being a /m/ native.

She's not piloting the Phenex though, the Phenex entity is a distinctly separate being.

Saying you dislike Unicorn is annoying because every time you do, you get lumped in with the fucking morons who hate it for the dumbest shit (POWER LEVELS BAD THIS CONSPIRACY DOESN'T MAKE SENSE REEEEE DESTROY MODE LOOKS SO DUMB WHY IS THERE SPACE MAGIC IN THIS SEQUEL TO CCA).

I think Unicorn is bad to middling because of a variety of stuff dragging it down: it's an unfaithful adaptation, missing exposition on what was going on with the Unicorn absorbing various peoples' souls throughout the series, Banagher is so dull his most notable characteristic is being a SOREDEMO bot at the end, the weird leg designs on a lot of the new MS, episode 7 not taking the chance to show the Zeta, ZZ, and V2, and so on.

Anyone who complains that the original charter wouldn't have any meaning today outs themselves a fucking secondary who couldn't even be assed to watch the show he's complaining about. Banagher and Audrey's first reaction when they see what's in the box is disbelief that people have died for something so fucking worthless. The Federation was never seriously worried that Newtypes would use the original charter to claim greater political power. They were worried that giving the Zeon remnants even the slightest, tiniest, most insignicant triva-esque justification would reignite that Zeon patriotism and throw the world into another OYW. And they have every right to fear that, because Zeon is fucking insane. That's the entire reason why when Audrey reveals the charter at the end, she begs everyone listening to please not use it as motivation to do anything stupid.

All of this is blindingly obvious to anyone who WATCHED THE FUCKING SHOW, and yet to this day people talk about Laplace's Charter like Newtypes were gonna use it to become the presidents of the Earth Sphere or some shit. It's maddening and I can't even believe it's all just shitposting anymore because it's gone on for so long.

Finally, someone gets it. Audrey exposed it for it to lose its significance.

This is unrelated to the rest of the post, which I think you bring up good points in, but I just wanted to comment on the arguments you hate hearing.

>POWER LEVELS BAD
On one hand I agree that this is a bit of a stupid complaint, but on the other it's a bit ridiculous how the Unicorn is literally some God machine of UC despite us seeing hundreds of years into the future and seeing nothing like it. Even if you don't call G-Saviour canon, the Unicorn has like the same powers as Turn A which came thousands of years later. It's like the Mary Sue Gundam, essentially. And it's wasted on a really shitty mecha design.
>THIS CONSPIRACY DOESN'T MAKE SENSE REEEEE
I mean it's a bit convoluted but it makes sense, I just think it's a weak motivation and I don't particularly like how it has implications for the rest of UC. You explained it pretty well, but to be honest I never got that impression and I watched it twice. I guess I just lost interest since I dislike Banagher greatly.
>DESTROY MODE LOOKS SO DUMB WHY IS THERE
It has the same colours as a used tampon. It's ugly as fuck and ruins an already middling design.
>SPACE MAGIC IN THIS SEQUEL TO CCA
Absolutely agree that this is a stupid as fuck argument. People complaining about newtype bullshit are fucking idiots, and usually underaged morons thinking they are more mature than they are for watching "realistic" shows. Newtype bullshit is what makes UC interesting. I don't like how exaggerated the abilities are in comparison to what we've already seen, and I say that as someone who loves CCA's ending, but I don't loathe newtypes like some morons on this shitty board.

>>21052025
Oh it's been obvious for a while some people here didn't watch Unicorn so much as experience it vicariously through shitty threads here. It's transcended shitposting to become the emobidment of a lie told often enough becoming someone else's truth.

What honestly baffles me is why Gundam attracts such a peculiar strain of idiocy, like it isn't even about the works in question any more but rather MY TEAM GOOD YOUR TEAM SUCK hooliganism.
