What the fuck happened right before this scene?
Did the writers yet to fully flesh out the idea that Char was going to become some sort of George Washington figure for the spacenoids?
Here he starts taking popshots at random elderly spacenoid refugees.
Then he sort of ducks behind the dune like "oh shit, i forgot what i was doing there for a second, time to retreat"
well i kind of saw him as wanting to take up his father's mantle of taking up the cause of the people of space
taking down the zabi dictatorship coincided with his father's ideals AND taking revenge for the murder of Zeon Daikun, but even after that char seemed to always be on the side of the colonists, even if he went apeshit at the end and decided to drop meteors onto earth
>but even after that char seemed to always be on the side of the colonists
Yeah, that's why he had no qualms about working for Zeon WHILE they were slaughtering billions of colonists left and right, right? Or threatening Side 6 with the same fate because Cameron was getting pissy at him, right?
really Zeta Gundam's depiction of Char was somehting they pulled out of their ass to shake up the plot. its the same heavy handed shit where they put GM chest vents on a Zaku to show that the Federation have become the "bad guys".
in the US, CCA was shown on Toonami as though it was a direct sequel to MSG and no one even batted an eye at char's behavior, theres a reason for that.
Yeah, random bodies obscured by sand coming from the enemy ship are most likely enemy soldiers.
Char didn't care about his fathers ideals until he met Lalah anyways, before that it was all about revenge.
No one was watching, though. He just capped some old people in the middle of the desert for no real reason.
"Oh, hey! Old people!"
POP! POP! POP!
"am outside ur white base killin ur doodz!"
and then he ran away
I recognize that ol' lullaby!
Macross began pre-production as a parody of Gundam before the producers decided they had a shot at making their own serious show. Roy's name is even a pun. Roy = King (as in "Royal") and Fokker means "flyer". See also: Max Jenius.
>well i kind of saw him as wanting to take up his father's mantle of taking up the cause of the people of space
Char literally couldn't give less of a fuck about any of that shit, he's really just an empty shell whose only purpose is revenge.
They are like literally the same dude, except Sleggar has a slightly more believable death. Fokker's death makes no sense outside of "Okay this dude has to die now to shake the MC's confidence and force him to grow as a person"
