I just finished watching Heroic Age #20. For all of you who have wondered, "where's the next great space opera?", well it's on now. To miss this show is a crime. Period. Heroic Age has just ratcheted up the pressure since Episode 1. Between its Greek-mythology fueled plot, the enigma of the Golden T...

Tachyon: First, although it's cool to have an 11x17 scanner, you can do just as well with a smaller, more economical unit. Set your sights on something like an Epson Perfection - the perfect compromise between price and reliability. Second, take your time. Gears hasn't been built in a day.^_^ Yes, f...

I'm also feeling some fan-art coming on. Berserk (or uber-berserk) Belcross was a beautiful thing. Very Guyveresque, but just so... BADASS.

I'm also really taken with the "12 Labors of Hercules" angle. The Wikipedia article on the show covers it quite nicely, including a screencap of the contract between Age and the Iron Tribe. It is nothing less than an edict of human galactic supremacy (which I don't consider a bad thing given the oth...

BitTorrent, my brother. If you go to Tokyo Toshokan (tokyotosho.com), you can get the torrent client software, player and coder/decoder software (ZoomPlayer and CCCP are tops), AND download all twelve subtitled episodes of Heroic Age. All of the above software are .exe files, so just hit them and th...

Heroic Age ROCKS DA HOUSE!!!

I ranted about this show in my season review, but it bears repeating: WATCH HEROIC AGE!!! This show has got what followers of big sci fi - FSS, the works of David Brin, Greg Bear and other epic SF writers want. Peep this: Far in the future, mankind has spread out into the universe and diversified - ...

Your question, of course, invokes something we've not seen for a long time in any Gundam series: design innovation. I miss the inspiration and -dare I say it- diversity in design styles of the Zeta and Double-Zeta eras. As far as sensors and their placement, I liked the main and backup sensors we sa...

For the explanation of strategic vs. tactical, domo arigato GG. My idea for the wasp carrier MA would be strategic because the pilot would be anchored outside the battlefront, dispatching wasps and laying them out to harass and destroy the enemy from a number of attack points. I would expect the pil...

Oooh, Cobra's weapon on a mobile-suit scale? Eeeeeee-vill!!! Okay, here's mine: Wasps - basically an upgraded funnel with submunitions. Not only would wasps have cannons, but could also release optically-guided missile swarms. They would be somewhat larger than funnels; a mobile suit could conceivab...

Speaking of books, I must run away for a few hours - gotta pick up the paternal unit from the hospital - but please email me regarding a discovery I've made.

Thanks,

No love as yet. I wrote HLJ, and their response was "watch this space." Typical. Besides, I'm now one of the growing legion of otaku who are rather brassed off at HLJ's order policies. I had pre-ordered a Fand-2 (Yukikaze) toy from them when they first announced it. They canceled the order - no harm...

GG: A very succinct and well-written review of the 00 designs. Kudos on some great writing! I'm still sitting on the fence regarding these designs. Although they are a departure from the *stuff* we saw in Seed and Destiny, I'm still waiting for a return to some really innovative and cool-looking Gun...
