  1. finished episodes 3 & 4.. this anime is so damn serious and violent! O_O it makes the first series of FMP look like care bears.. i guess fumoffu is like a counter balance, funny gimics and laughter.. and then second raid comes along and boom!

    you see the inside of some guy's throat right after the knife slices thru and then an execution style bullet in another guy's head...

    Just watched the first three eps myself last night, still waiting on the release of the 4th from the groups I dling from. Damn greatness I say. Really does make the first one look lik care bears. Fumoffu is basically a side story so it really doesn't tie into the actual series.

    I was like "Holy Shit" when that chick slit the mans throat. My god this one is violent. Also that one dude is freaky, makes me wonder what the hell is wrong with him. Also what the hell does Tessa's Brother have to do with those two chicks. God this series brings up alot of questions.


  2. Hah, I actually remember those sigs.

    Heh, now this is old school Toonami for you. Was a big fan back when they showed it on CN. Twas a good show. I should really look into getting it all on DVD but the funds be lacking at the moment (damn them releasing DearS on DVD and then having Planetes vol. 2 come out shortly after that).

    I'm also with Sledge, Anubis was my favorite also.


  3. What's worse is that I was the paladin at the time. What made it funy was the reasoning behind my doing it.

    Me (Paladin)"Hey guys, like my new +5 Full Plate Mail and Belt of Hill Gian Strength?"

    Ranger: "How in Ilander's name did you pay for that?! Oh god don'T tell me you got the thief involved again..."

    Thief: "I stole who in the what now?"

    Me: "Relax guys, I learned my lesson the last time... "

    Ranger: "So how did you pay for it. I know you didn't spend our money because after you wasted half our gold on those stupid marbles I took all the gold from you."

    Me: "Hey, those marbles came in handy against the dragon."

    Ranger: "That's not the point! Now tell me how you paid for that."

    Me: "Well I kinda pimped out Nefaria to the shop owner."

    Cleric (Neferia): "You what!"

    Me: "Well you are a drow, and a slut so it's not like you're going to mind or anything."

    Cleric: "Well that's true. But you owe me."

    Me: "Fine, I'll do you later."

    And even after all that I still didn'T lose my paladin status.

    X'D how you didn't lose your Paladin status after all that baffles my mind but it's still hilarious. Must have one really understanding DM. Then again I shouldn't say much, couple friends and I have done things that would strip a paladin of his status for life (with no chance of being redeemed, long story short it involved a couple NPC's, myself (the paladin), a barbarian, and a really f'ed up DM).


  4. Damn I knew I was missing out on something last night but no I had to watch Gundam X again. Ohwell.

    I must say those eps were some of my favorites (that is the three before last nights). Ohwell they will be on again I'll just have to remember not to watch anything else when Teen Titans is on.


  5. Whoa whoa whoa Clow now your ignorance is showing. Controlling funnels does not make one a newtype. I'm sorry thats not what makes someone a true newtype. Read the definition, learn your UC terminology, for cripes sakes watch MSG and Zeta. Good lord this new age of Gundam Fans has lost their knowledge of the old series. Funnel control is not done by the mind, its done thru the computer (on board the Gundam) reading the throughts and will of the pilot and sending said funnel there to attack. Am I the only one here who looks into the mechanics of the suits and how they're run?

    Whats this I can have my Char? I'm sorry I liked Gundam X and Garrod is one of the Gundam pilots I respect most. I also liked Turn-A, which I'm still in the middle of watching. Don't write me off as a full out UC fanatic (yes I am one) but I do like some of the AU series also. Geez people.


  6. 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).


  7. Can you Link me to where i can get episode four. Also Trowa is teh Pilot of Heavy Arms who has no name. So he took someones name aftter the person was killed and the Chairmain said that inturn means he has no Existance. Anyway Strider Chars Zaku was remaid and Newtypes can be coordinated X'D

    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?


  8. 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).


  9. 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.


  10. Finally Kuwa admitts Seed/Destiny are awsome...now for Stider...

    Good job Clowtrigger! Plus you grammar has gottten better! :tup:

    Do you guys have anymore pictures of the new Gundams? :drool:

    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.


  11. 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.


  12. 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:

    jun3.jpg

    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).


  13. the second sailor from the right is Pluto :-p and man i got a pic of Winry that is ever better but i cant post it cause of small children *cough*(remembers hentai banner wars back in day of AP) oh the memories

    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.


  14. Cammy got bored? You only played for ten days, not enough to effectively judge it. Ohwell, I guess WoW isn't for everyone.

    O.o I've been meaning to get into CoH after watching my friend play it for awhile. Is it any good Cammy?


  15. 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.
