      I'll say it now: Asuka is a hypersexual bitch. But this is funny as hell:

    • My review of Turn-A Gundam

      13 years ago

      Zacku

      Turn-A Gundam, also known as *insert upside-down A here* Gundam, is radically different than every other Gundam series. It involves a young man named Loran Cehack who is sent to Earth with his two friends from the Moon. They are there so they can observe the planet and see if the planet can be colonized, so the “Moonrace†can return home. He also looks like a chick, but we’ll get there later. The Earth is now devoid of most technology, and it’s the Moonrace that has all of the technology. The people on Earth end up digging up mobile suits that are thousands of years old. Huh. Sounds an awful lot like the video game, “Xenogearsâ€Â. Which really isn’t a bad thing, if you think about it.

      Enough on the backstory, let’s get to the meat. The characters. Without a doubt, this is the best cast in a Gundam series since Amuro and friends. It’s also the only Gundam series with a black lead. Well, sorta. He looks black. But he has green eyes and white hair. Hey, it’s the future, and he’s from the moon. So it works. He even ends up crossdressing as a chick named Laura Rolla for two episodes. That makes him even better. He makes a very hot chick. :p Oh, everyone else. The cast is quite diverse, and very original. The only characters close to ones from previous series are Harry Ord and Queen Dianna Soriel, who share some similarities to First Gundam’s Char Aznable, and Queen Dianna is like Victory Gundam’s Maria Pia Armonia, except not a bitch. She ends up constantly switching places with the Earth’s Kihel Heim. It’s one of the series’ “gimmicksâ€Â, and it’s showcased in every opening/ending. THEY LOOK ALIKE. We get it!

      And now, for the mech designs. It’s well-known that some people don’t like the Turn-A Gundam itself, because of its “stupid mustacheâ€Â. The main mechs in this series were designed by Syd Mead, the famed American designer that worked on movies such as Aliens, Short Circuit, and Blade Runner. Some of the other designs may seem a bit… familiar. That’s because the Borjarnon is an excavated Zaku II, and the Kapool is an excavated… Kapool. The Turn-A is supposedly responsible for eliminating all of Earth’s technology thousands (yes, thousands!) of years ago. And that leads to another point. The Dark History. This is what all of those excavated mobile suits are from. Hmm… a Zaku and a Kapool. Maybe the Dark History is the Universal Century? Wrong! It’s not just the Universal century, it’s ALL of Gundam, even the so-called Alternate Universe series. Turn-A makes all of Gundam into one timeline, spreading over the course of ten thousand years (five thousand in the movies).

      To end things off; the story. Unlike previous entries in the series with their many battles and eye-candy, Turn-A is strictly character driven. There’s no fanservice to be found here, and the only character we see naked the most is Loran. Creepy, but funny. The series ends up completely different from where it began, and the only “Let’s throw a big nasty thing at Earth!†is aimed at the moon, and it’s accidental. In fact, barely any of Gundam’s clichés are in this series. Loran doesn’t even apply to the “Tomino Principle of Character Developmentâ€Â, which is, “In order for a main character to develop, he or she must sufferâ€Â. Yoko kanno’s music suits the environment perfectly, making this the only Gundam series with an orchestrated soundtrack. The final battle is also completely different. It’s a one-on-one duel between Gym and Loran on Earth, not in a giant space fortress/colony/superweapon. But that’s not the biggest difference. Unlike every other Gundam series directed by Tomino, the main characters LIVE. His finales are usually the massive bloodbaths, where just a handful of leads survive. Uh-uh. Not here. In this finale, he shows that love conquers all. Wow. Isn’t his philosophy, “War sucks. We suck. We’re gonna kill ourselvesâ€Â? Admitted, he was very depressed when he wrote Victory Gundam five years before this series, and this shows that he isn’t all that depressed anymore. In fact, he’s a bit TOO happy. :p

      So, in the end, I give Turn-A Gundam…
      96 out of a possible 100 points
      Turn-A Gundam is the best Gundam series, after Zeta, that is. This shows that Gundam isn't some stupid gimmick to sell models, but that it's really a character drama. If you can find it, I highly reccommend it. But, if you want fancy battles, pretty-boys and Eye candy, go waste your time with Gundam SEED.

      Hey, I'm just giving a shout-out here. If anyone needs Gundam images (that aren't hentai), I can get you them. I'll do what I can to find them, but if ANYONE has Laura Rolla pics, they'll get some mod points. ;)

      I didn't say that. I said it looked cooler than all the times he got into the Master Gundam and destroyed other MS.

      Hey, by the way, did you read my new story?
      If you did, I'd appreciate any feed back at all. Even if you didn't like it and tell me it sucked, you'll be telling me something.

    • JPRoberts

      12 years ago

      Bah! Says you.
      The moment you put together a party to come lynch me, I'll just hop in my Zaku.
      Martial artists should stick to fighting with their bodies. Besides, it looks cooler when a tiny man destroys a 16 meter tall mech than it does to have two of those mechs trying to act like their pilots.
      In short, people should be people, robots should be robots. Colonies should be cylindrical, and cannons should be cannons, not torches(I'm talking to you, Statue of Liberty), or fingers.

      Finally: Hail Zeon!
