Mobile Suit #Gundam: Hathaway's Flash is definitely the first film in a series, but I'm okay with that. After Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative, it's nice to have characters with character, who aren't tied up in Newtype™ shenanigans.
Bless Hussie. His troll relationship concepts have given me the words to describe what happens in Char's Counterattack. With auspistice Lalah dead, the ashen romance between Char and Amuro deepens to a pitch-black kismesissitude, and with their relationship, so too does the state of the Earth Sphere. #gundam
I sat down to try to draw some conclusions from my research on #Zeonism in #Gundam, and, well, there's still a lot of stuff to research. I'm at a point where I need to either read or watch the original Mobile Suit Gundam, as well as rewatch half a dozen other things, just to fill in the gaps.
I thought I was farther.
Dunno how they did it, but #Gundam AGE manages to hit some of the same soundtrack notes as Band of Brothers, in an appropriate but unexpected way.
In my continued quest to understand #Zeonism, I've at last finished watching #Gundam ZZ.
For a break, I watched Gundam F91, which focuses on the scheme to establish Cosmo Babylonia. It feels thematically related to Zeon, but there's no explicit Zeonism. Yet I wonder if I should include it in this review of Zeonism.
In Zeta #Gundam it's confirmed that Von Braun city is built around the footprint of Neil Armstrong. This is neat worldbuilding detail, but
Why do I feel that it's sacrilege?
Things that I would like to do today:
- photoshop a bunch of #gundam mobile suits without heads
- continue work on https://writing.exchange/@ontploffing/102181766310298252
- write a bunch of cards
What I will do instead:
- wash hair
- continue work on back yard pavers
- something with the kitchen moulding
Early-story minor spoilers for Char's Counterattack/Beltorchika's Children
Here's two takes on Bright Noa catching up with his son, who he hasn't seen in a few months. In the film, their meeting is pretty much all business, about where Noa's wife and daughter are. In the manga, the beard provides some lightness to a depressing scene. #Gundam
After reading Beltorchika's Children, and after rewatching Char's Counterattack, I'm still undecided on whether Bright Noa looked better with or without a beard.
Alright, I can't watch any more #Gundam Build Divers. The protagonist is waaaay to much of a self-insert for the viewer, and the show is way too much of an advert. Too many coincidences.
Following up to this thread of #gundam and #lego rumination: https://writing.exchange/@ontploffing/100743452381539361
I have built a chunk of hangar bay for the two mechs I built, but i find I don't have sufficient bricks available to flesh out the concept beyond one wall. So I'm gonna photograph and maybe illustrate my WIP, and then put the parts back in the box until I have enough to progress.
Will also scan some of the thinking sketches.
Now there are three interpretations for this. The uncharitable one is that it's character design sexism. The middling one is in-universe sexism. The charitable one is that women wear magnetic heels and have developed stupendous calves to compensate for nonexistent ankle support.
