  1. Ok I had no idea Kira was a newtype (as I said have not seen the Destiny series) and I highly doubt he's a true newtype (for elaboration plz look up what a newtype is). I won't take up the scholar position for this, I'm opposed to GW too (if you have read previous topics). I don't like anything that has the Gundam name thrown on it when it is not deserving of the name and when its completely obvious that the creators had no confidence in there series (as can be seen by the blatant remakes of old UC suits and the rehashing of old personalities from the UC series). Wing acutally had the confidence to show itself as a series (no remakes of suits) and I respect Wing and it's creators for that. However, I will admit that SEED had promise and I actually liked the first 10 or so eps. Sadly it faltered after that and it seems Destiny has not brought it up from is faltering there. I know you're not forcing me to like Destiny. I just posted in here because EVA made the comment about getting me into the series. After that it went downhill. I will not be coming back in here to post unless my name is specifically brought up again. I am respected for my UC knowledge that I am and I'm glad theres others here knowledgeable in the other series I have yet to either get a liking to or watch. You guys are good references to what the new age of Gundam fans likes. But remember this: this series has remakes of suits, remakes of personalities, and blatant bring ups of newtypism (I liked the coordinator idea they brought into this, however making one a newtype is wrong and as I said I highly doubt he's a true newtype). Now if you'll excuse me I'll go back to my randomly reading this topic and hoping for something new to come up where I can talk gundam again (preferably in another topic).
  2. Seeing as how I have the Air artbook, agree with cfi, and to help cfi out I shall post a pic of Kanna for you all. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v47/xyath/092.jpg Just click on the link cause the pic is pretty big to just be placing here and I'm too damn lazy to resize it.
  3. Cheap remakes won't bring me to like this show. If thats what it takes to bring in fans to a series then let them. My opinion is that both SEED series aren't that great, wannabe UC series. Plot and Character development in both are lacking making the series subpar. As I said my opinion. Take it as you will. Its sad though how this is the only active topic in the Gundam Forum. What happened to those riveting discussions we once had?
  4. If I'm considered an old fart at 19 theres something wrong there. I'm stuck in my ways. I'll be old school till the day I die (or they come up with a new mech anime thats greater then Gundam, hasn't happened yet but it just might). If I give it a shot it will be when Destiny airs in the US. As I said I will not dl the eps, too much respect for Bandai to dl behind their backs. Heh, nothing will be more awesome then the original Zaku's. I'm sorry they have a special place in my heart and no remake or cheap pawn off will ever get the right to be called awesome by me. If they remade Char's Zaku I would kill the creators of Destiny, burn there bodies and then hide the ashes. Char's Zaku is not to be touched, to do so would go against everything UC stood for (ok not really but Char's Zaku is a one and only custom, remakes would be a travesty).
  5. Still doesn't mean that I gotta like it Clow. I'll gripe all I want cause the redesigns aren't even that great in fact they're horrible. Yes I know many UC fans do like them, I don't aswell as a majority of us hardcore UC fans. In my opinion they're trying to bring fans in with re-designed suits that were better before the re-design. If it's not broke don't fix it as I've always said.
  6. You will never get me to admit SEED/SEED Destiny is awesome. Call me an old school fan but I cannot bring myself to like this. Probably because some of the suits are redesigns of old UC suits. Frankly the plot and character development of SEED was appalling and I can't comment on SEED Destiny since I don't watch it and I won't dl it (I have respect for Bandai and since they have it licensed I refuse to dl it). As for you worries on being caught you won't be. The only way you'll get caught dling something via BitTorrent is if a company that has the anime licensed is watching it. Otherwise you're safe. Frankly my laptop is on 24/7 (usually) and it either always dling anime or seeding it for others to dl and I haven't been caught yet. Though I will suggest staying away from dling anything licensed by ADV or licensed period cause you run a great risk of getting caught.
  7. It's a random tag that puts everyones names in there when they view page with it on Tasha, mine's in her sig as I post this. (I'm still trying to figure out how to do it) Kuwa thats the original He-Man from the original show, back when He-Man was worth watching. And on a side note why the heck did I even post in here for. This is just wrong and disturbing for a guy to be posting here.
  8. Thats right we do care. Oh yes Lady we demand pics to reference by. *runs and hides before Sledge shows up*
  9. Sig making takes alot of time to get down right. Heck, my banners are nowhere nears as good as Cammy (who is like a sig making god) or Dubird (who is a sig making goddess). I just picked up banner making roughly two years ago. I'm self-taught, having dled photoshop and then spending a good two to three weeks playing around with all the features. Takes time and patience to create some of the stuff most of us do. I see nothing wrong with you're sigs, heck they're better then when I first started out. Need an example: One of the first sigs I ever created. Took maybe 20 mintues to do all of that and that includes removing the background, creating my own background, and placing text in. You are doing much better then I did back when I first started. Of course I agree, ideas are hard to comeby hence why you don't see many new sigs out of me that often. I create them only when an idea surfaces and when I'm not being lazy. Now compare that sig to the one I'm using now (it's a new one). This new one consists of the following: 16 layers (12 of which consist of just making that background, 2 for the pic used (same pic, cropped in two different places), 1 for border, and one for text) Various usings of the blending features found in photoshop Eraser tool (very friendly for grunge backgrounds) This took me about 45 minutes to create seeing as how the background is something I use in all my sigs doesn't take long to create one I like. Experiment around with Photoshop, use different features, use multiple layers. If something turns out good then your on to something, if not trash it and try something new. Thats how I come up with new stuff (also helps to read a few tutorials here and there).
  10. Oh god that brings up memories. I will agree that Ren from DearS is a hottie (a damn fine girl she is). Don't have a pic though.
  11. I have to agree with Mibu on this one.
  12. Well then I shall have to try it out cause you've never steered me wrong yet on your recommendations.
  13. Cammy got bored? You only played for ten days, not enough to effectively judge it. Ohwell, I guess WoW isn't for everyone. I've been meaning to get into CoH after watching my friend play it for awhile. Is it any good Cammy?
  14. You see on my server we don't like those who go out for hks. You get more honor getting the flag back so why worry about hks. Frankly I get as many or more hks then those on the attacking teams (I average around 150-200 kills per game while on defense). I do believe that a warrior could run the flag back on his own. A warrior on my server is notorious for being able to run the flag back by himself. He's damn good.
  15. Cammy doesn't, don't think he ever will. I, however, do play. Not a big PvP fanatic though I will admit Warsong CTF is fun (I am the master defensive strategist).
  16. I usually have music on in the background while I'm making graphics or while I'm writing poetry. TV is usually on also but it's usually on mute. Music varies depending on how depressed I am (for poems) so usually its hardcore stuff like Death Metal and the like.
  17. Hmmm I should really get around to dling these (heh, I'm still dling the series). Good lord man it's Zoro, not Zolo. Get it right.
  18. That'd be the one (actually watched the dub). Twas a funny ep it was (effectively putting them as you said at ep 6)
  19. If I'm right it shouldn't be too long from now. The manga took awhile to get to them getting Sanji also so be patient.
  20. I will agree with you there. Was the only recap episode I found myself watching with interest
  21. Making new brushes gives me headaches but if I have time I can create a little tutorial and send it to you. Follow Sledge's instructions, they work. That or play around with the feature that allows you to do it. As a man once told me "Playing around is PS is where you learn what to do right and what not to do".
  22. now thats a first. *makes note of what not to do around Eppy* If he comes back my Cypher is always available. Need to test and see if its still sharp.
  23. I second the Pimpdaddy on that.
  24. Ok, you sir have serious problems if you like that crap opening. Also its kinda wrong that you only watch the show for that opening, tis really sad. Bah why did I even come back in here. Everytime I do that song mysteriously pops into my head. Grrrrr.......... *runs off to watch the real, so much better opening*
  25. They think anime is a joke? Don't know but thats the impression I get from most dubbing companies. As for Naruto coming to Toonami I don't know what to say. I'm not the biggest fan of the anime (in fact I think the anime should have never been made). I'm more of a fan of the manga but I may watch it here or there on Toonami when it comes.
