Terminator in T2 won't be that great of a character without its chemistry with John Connor and the emotional parting at the end.
I always thought he was better as a villain.

They are newtypes after all, mind reading powers come with the package. Besides, it's not that different from the original series with Amuro and Lalah.

Good for you. Many people remember the character more as the unlikely hero in T2.

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?
Or, it could be a mobile armour attachment. No one said the new TOP SECRET unit had to be a standalone suit

Not in the Novels, Dakar was supposed to be the Torrington in EP 4, with all the fighting happening there

Honestly alot of ppl were let down by this and the many other changes that happened

Lol just so you know "Mahdi" is an actual Arabic word which literally means "Messiah". Obviously Frank Herbert borrowed many words and references for his Dune novels, considering the similarities in themes and setting.

ANOTHER YEAR!? WHY!? I.... Gah!

Seriously though, is this because the episode will have extended work on it or because Bandai is trying to milk this to no end? I really am wondering. At least episode 6 gets released tomorrow.

Interesting. So why does Zeon speak of Mahdi? Or does Full Frontal have a thing for Arabic?

The problem with OVA changing stuff from the novels...

Full Frontal was actually referring to Loni's father who was named Mahdi. He was killed for being a Neo Zeon sympathiser, which was the driving force behind Loni wanting to take revenge on the Federation.

Whereas in the novels he was the one piloting the Shamblo, wreaking havoc and Loni died trying to stop him.

If we have to wait for a WHOLE year, they better make it worth the wait and make the OVA longer than just one hour too!!

Thanks for the Info. It is weird seeing a zeon using arabic name.

From what we've seen thus far, it will be worth the wait Storywise, the OVAs do a reasonable job (even if they don't follow the novels totally), but for me, the animation and sound production blows me out of the water every time. I heard somewhere that the finale will be longer, but I can't quite recall what the length is, if the length was even made known at all.
