Gundam Evolve

Post by Tachyon » Tue Aug 05, 2008 3:33 pm

I just watched Gundam Evolve 1 - 10. Cool stuff! Some of them were a little cryptic for me but I've never seen Gundam Seed or Wing.

What did everyone else think?

I like 'em muchly. The little snippets of backstory shown are really neat, and provide lead-in to the events in various Gundam shows. Even if you haven't seen the shows referenced, they're still way cool little shorts.

My favorite one is the rollout of the Dendrobium unit. It's one of the best "wholesale slaughter" sequences I've ever seen! :D

On a different subject, I apologize for not starting a new thread, but I need to bring this show to your attention: Bounen no Xam'd.

To oversimplify, it's "Eureka 7 meets Nausicaa." As goofy as that may sound, Bones has found the right permutation of the concept. I am grooving on Xam'd as hard as I did on Eureka 7, and I highly recommend this show. Folks aren't talking about it because it's a biotech mecha show as opposed to a gross-tech show (like Macross or Gundam). It's well worth the price of a download.

Getting back on-topic, I gotta say that "Gundam Evolve" just keeps spitting out the surprises. Not every episode is ZOMGawesome, but I'd definitely buy a compilation DVD (if Bandai were so liberal as to release one).

Bounen no Xam'd? I can't find it on Box Torrents or Anime Suki. Where is it?

Ben & Tachyon:

The answers to both your questions can be found at Tokyo Toshokan (tokyotosho.com). This is the place to be for the latest stuff!

Use their search function to locate Gundam Evolve, as well as Xam'd.

Good hunting, troopers! I'm on my way there now to see what's new!
