>>61040636 Too bad there's not a dub, even a fan dub, because more people would watch it. I have mixed feelings about the remake that's coming. I don't think it's possible to do something of the scope and writing quality of the original.
>>61034719 I never quite understood what sort of economy can afford to pay for such a large fleets. heck it was fleets of fleets. 10's of thousands of ships. What can sustain that?
A military can't just indefinitely build ships during peace time. But that must have been what happened. They must built ship after ship after ship for a long fucking time. Also, lol the exact same ship.
LoGH is pretty good as a kind of historical fiction, where all the characters, political actions, battles, faction were inspired by human history in one way or another. For a more "sci fi" political saga you should check out Universal Century Gundam. It's got more action and it's battle focused which can be a pro or con. One thing it has over LoGH is new-age philosophies that reflect jumps in technology. It's very grounded around the Earth. The "space nazis" lose their major war, but they manage stick around forever and they're portrayed as heroic rebels in some series.
>>61042365 True. I still dream about a serious group of fans doing a dub. It would be a lot of fun, but real voice talent is rarer than one would think. Most people just sound like nasaly autists when they record.
The FPA is going bankrupt from the war, and is collapsing infrastructure wise because the military is eating up any graduates. It's on the verge of collapse at series start. Both sides consist of an entire galactic arm, for scale.
The GE has a much larger infrastructure base, but both sides use planetary mining.
The Universal Century setting is red-pilled as fuck. It's everything else that drags it down. The only really good series was the original TV broadcast. Everything else went too hard into Newtypes being Autistic Jedi that turn into space ghosts.
Yeah, yeah. Lalah did it. But it was bizarre, and after she mind-melded with Amuro she fucked off, and the rest of it still felt mysterious and unexplainable. Then they went full-midichlorians with it.
>>61042577 The most interesting part of Gundam was the psychological/spiritual elements, not space Nazis
Amuro reacting to what happens to Lalah is totally beautiful and powerful. The visual representation of his mind as crashing waves before he loses his mind is something that would never be produced today. Kamille's ending in Zeta is also extremely powerful in a spiritual sense
The Japanese seem to have much more respect for a higher plane of being than westerners are. We have an egotistical view that all has been answered by science and that matters of spirituality don't matter despite having no real idea
Y'know it was written by a Japanese Graduate in the 1980's for fun, and he never expected a series, right? The guy's a chinese historian, not a native German speaker. It was never officially translated to even English.
Still, the amount of historical, mythological and political references astound.
>>61043886 But Lang taught us about the duality of man, anon. Also it's funny you're posting Oberstein, the biggest faggot everyone wanks over for being a martyr to the cause. Just kidding I like Oberstein too.
>>61044122 Give Dougram a try if you're into politics and guerrilla warfare. But It can get a bit tiring sometimes if you're not into big dumb robutt battles.
>>61044428 The one where he sensed Kamille tragic "ending" and subsequently lost all hope for humanity? I saw that. Still quite a jarring jump from a missing pilot to the head of Neo Zeon in a span of a couple of years though.
>>61035658 More like an alternate timeline where Imperial Japan won everything.
Actually, if anything Lalah saved Amuro by bringing him back from the brink. Amuro was turning into a heartless mass murderer, but she practically saved his soul by touching him with the last moments she had in life before she was vaporized by his giant robot light saber.
When Amuro cries and says that by killing Lalah he's done something horrible he can never take back, it's him rediscovering his own soul. We see at the end, as he's floating back to the White Base crew after the battle of A Baoa Qu that he's finally accepted they do in fact love him, and he loved them as well. She helped him mature, and become and adult.
One of the problems with the movie adaptations is they messed up the pacing a lot. Everyone on the crew had to overcome some major hangup before they could mature, and each of them did. The death of Kai's secret Zeon girlfriend was pretty sad, too. But it was great character development.
>>61045792 You've got it a bit wrong there, Amuro is no psychopath and the war and killing wounds his soul deeply several times over the story. His burden of having to save the White Base crew drives him to desperation. Lalah's death awakens him to a new stage in his life but he is still a wild beast until the conflict is over. His duel with Char is vicious and filled with anger
Only with Zeon defeated is he shown to be at peace
