Let's talk about

Me on the right
It seems pretty self-contained so far. Haven't read the mango but the first episode seems like it'd make perfect sense on its own.
If Thunderbolt is anything, it's watchable.
I just wanted an excuse to post this pic.
I can agree with that, as long as we can also agree the TITANS do not represent the EF, and were in fact a subset of the EF that took power through force.
The EF has its own flair of shit, but is nowhere near as bad as Zeon and the TITANS.
Is Thunderbolt the manliest Gundam since G? This face says "yes"
How many years hand drawn was this?
also ep 2 when?
It looked nice, and that's about it. I don't see how anyone can give a shit about any of the characters on either side, and the plot boils down to "take back this position while the actual war is fought elsewhere".
It's a tight battle between 2 well known factions in their prime without any of the bullshit about newtype space magicks or people doing dumb things because they're thinking with their cocks/pussies. The next episode should flesh out the characters a bit more since they cut a lot from the first episode to fit the time restraints
Well I wasn't expecting that much, but are the characters sensible? Like are the big shots as smart as Gopp and Oxner? Do people actually plan things out before a battle? Or do they listen to 'Char' and get killed by the Gundam when they flank him?
Gundams are fucking scary
It's sort of odd in that it takes place in an alternate version of gundams UC timeline. Its basically UC but the author had the go ahead to run with his own ideas whether they fit in the timeline or not.
Essentially though, all you need to know is that the Earth federation and a group of its colonies are at war that has killed about half the human population and are currently at the tail end of the war and the Earth Federation forces are pushing towards Zeon's home colonies. The series starts just before the battle of A Baoa Qu which in the original series is where the war ended.
In thunderbolt it technically does too, but a huge chunk of Zeons military says "Fuck that" and keeps the war going.
Oh, and the debris field they are fighting in is one of the sides (clusters of colonies, Zeon is Side 3) destroyed at the start of the war.
The true purpose of their mission isn't to clear the route of snipers to cut off the supply route. After they technically succeed, the EFF turns out to have been hiding the true objective which was to clear it so they could secretly move the main fleet through the area as sort of a backdoor to A baoa qu on the orbital path.
Goddamn I loved that sequence. Gundam thunderbolt was amazing. Loved it to pieces. For an 18 minute episode they sure fucking knocked it out of the park.
That Gundam is clearly toying with the fucker. All he had to do was shoot him once, and from the POV you can clearly tell the Zaku wasn't moving for shit unless you were Celestial Being you can't possibly miss such an easy target.
That's just teabagging.
Perfectly fits how smug feddies were, let alone someone piloting a Gundam.
In thd manga he's doing it on purpose as a fear tactic because he knows the rest of the pilots and crew are recieving the transmissions. He's broadcasting Jazz the whole time for similar reasons.
>high speed leg thrusters
That's how it's gotta be. MSG may be a classic, but god fucking damn were they slow those Zakus were like horror show victims fighting Amuro. Literally deer starring into headlights.
I don't have it but there's a gif from a game where a couple of Zaku fire on some GM in the distance and a second later the gundam flies in out of nowhere. The gundam was called "The White Devil" for a reason.
What a fucking crazy looking badass, god damn it. One glance at this face and you know he doesn't care about anything other than removing zeon scum.
And he's a feddie too, prime future Titan material that probably gets btfo by Kamille's newtype plotarmor.
Not really actually. When he gets on a video transmission with the Zeon MC he had jump shot his friend and proceeds to insult his taste in music (He's a pop fag) and refers to him as "Peg Legs".
They needed those G-Reco toilets way more than G-Reco guys ironically enough. I mean they only ever shat out of combat.
If Zeon had that technology, you'd bet your ass they would be sitting on the shitter the whole time and it would automatically flush every 10 seconds or something during heated combat. Bidet would clean your ass as best as possible in between flushing in case you pop a turd and dirty yourself.
Thunderbolt is officially a UC alternate universe. It exists in a timeline that the OYW doesn't end at A Baoa Qu and goes on with 0083 and Advance of Zeta style technologies appearing.
There are mass produced Zeongs.
>read that as tsunderbolt
holy shit I need to take a break from watching anime
I just love Mecha stories about grunts. Bout damn time they get around to series about normal guys in gundams.
You know what happens when jazz is involved with anime, right?
