Well future eps I'll only watched subbed, but I just wanted to see how things looked.

I still don't understand why you would make a gundam with different components like that. Doesn't that increase it's bulk because each part needs an engine ?

i believe so too... each indiviual part has it's own pilot until it is connected i think... so there must be like 4 piliots then chaging into 1 gundam... what a waste of time and money... i'll laugh if one of those parts gets blown up... although they have backups it be funny fighing without the leg part or somehting...

Yes, it was rather impractical, especially when

Main difference between Kira and Shin is eyes color.

1) The "Core Splendor" (plane-like thing) can eject, so if the suit is about to blow or is trapped like Strike was in SEED Ep 30 the pilot can still escape
2) It makes replacing damage parts during battle easier since a replacement to damaged parts can be made without the pilot having to return to ship
3) It makes for a cool toy

Anyway, watch Victory Gundam if you don't understand the applications of the core block system. You should understand it much better if you do.

As for Kira and Shinn... Kira's skin is darker, his hair is brown, his eyes are purple. Shinn's skin is light, his hair is black, and his eyes are red... Also Shinn's face seems to be rounder and Kira's seems to be pointier.

I really hope the character design was either a lack of imagination or a want to appeal to the first series's viewers, and not some plot twist they have lined up.

Easy, stomach. Don't get sick just yet...

Which sadly enough isn't the case. Oh well I will manage.

I wonder how long it takes before the speed subbers sub the show.

I have to point out though that so far V Gundam stands out in the "merging mecha" theme. Because basicly its the only anime I've seen with "merging mecha" theme where the enemy actually tried shooting down the merging mecha and was succesful various times instead of the "hey look the giant mecha is merging lets all watch". (I admit I haven't seen many of the classic Super Robot genre)

I seem to be only quoting you today I hope you don't mind

4) Less production time for the mobile suit, as the various parts can be constructed independently in a parralel way.

Uke-Fansubs already translated the script last night (before the episode even aired... But they had the script from the premiering event), and they are planning to release theirs today... So this is speed-subbing at its best.

After watching the OP several more times, I JUST noticed that Yzak doesn't have his scar anymore. <.< [Yes, I'm slow. ] But no wonder he looked different... and better. Also, Lacus' new hair clip in the OP (scene with Athrun) looks kind of weird on her...

From all the magazines and SEED Destiny book I have, Shin's hair is very dark purple not black. The quickest way for me to identify Kira in the intermission and ED is his clothes from SEED Special Edition II and he is always paired with Lacus. The one in the show for now should always be Shin.

Speaking of which, Kazuki is like Kira with Shinn's hair/skin/eye (when in the Fafner) colors...

And sorry about that Egria, I didn't know that it was under your server...
