So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And itís also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

Besides, the Gundams are probably called Mars suits, so... a pretty lame excuse, I know.
That's the only reason I could think of, for Gundams to still exist/re-emerge after the Mariemaia incident. But yeah. It would be nice if they could elaborate on the "why".

Hope that's okay. When I get a hold of a new scanner I can give it another go if need be. ^_^ I particularly like the '......' between Heero and Wufei. XD
Much thanks, Pillsburry! Treize got a lot of fans. <3 Haha. I got a laugh out of the mutual '.......' relationship between Heero and Fei. I wish I could read the kanji parts, though. It may be much to ask, but will it be ok for you to translate? ^^;;

Ooh... I guess that explains Cathrine's involvement in training Trowa P., then - starting out as a volunteer for anti-war efforts. :-?

But wait. "Discovered"? Does that mean that they weren't the ones who developed the other Gundams? Only Snow White?

Calling Cath an old lady? Naina babes? Duo, Jr. really needs to learn some manners. :| That (flirty?) playfulness during his encounter with Naina reminds me of ol' Duo, though.

Oh, and I like Queen of Hearts better. Although Heart of Queen seems more... regal. Makes me wonder if Naina will be the one to take the throne at the end. Heh.

Beam Size probably meant beam scythe or beam scissors, as beam scissors was what they called the Deathscythe Hell Custom's weapon... for whatever reason.

This thread has various summaries and such throughout, and Deacon is translating. It'll take you some time to read through, but...
It's "babe," Kitsoru. "CJ" stands for Cynthia J.

Anyhow, it was the stuff about priests of various denominations that was the relevant information, and I wasn't looking at the date on the post at the time.

Not being snarky, just stating facts.

lolok. Dude is a genderless term in the 21st century. Babe is a little too misogynistic for my tastes so I'll pass on that one, thanks, I'm not Duo. ;U

Anyway.

Huh, interesting that it seems they discovered the other Gundams, they didn't build them? I wonder if that means the Noinheim was building Gundams...?

At the time that they're searching for Epyon's pilot, I wonder if that's after whatever it was Hilde did that supposedly caused that new Zechs Merquise to be created... IIRC they still haven't put a time to that (but I guess whenever we find out about that we'll probably also find out what actually happened to Hilde).

Also the little quirks Jr's picked up from his father, I love it

This month's GOTD, Deathscythe with wings(even more mobility?) and Sandrock and Magnacs with lower body Seravee Armor(hover?) and shoulder attached beam rifles.

Given the torrent of sand around them, these fat legs are likely hover equipment like the WMS-04 Olifant.

EDIT: After comparing the images, the legs are a perfect match for the Olifant's.

Yep. It's still looks stupid though.

EDIT: My vacation gave me ample time to watch GW again and I stumbled upon a scene I had completely forgotten. When Heero and Zechs first fight in Epyon and Zero respectively, their battle ends due to the ZERO system frying their brains with data overload. You know, a boatload of images flash before their eyes, the cockpit turns white and the interesting part, a pair of eyes appears. Here's what I mean.

Spoiler for ???:


The whole discussion about the ZERO system having a consciousness (or being based on one) came to mind. Oddly enough, there's only one person with brown eyes in GW and that's Lady Une. From what I can see though the shape is different. So, whose eyes are that? And what are they supposed to mean? Is Sumizawa actually explaining something instead of retconning it???

They are sticking Dom legs onto Sandrock for desert traveling? Pretty sweet.

And fuck yeah, Deathscythe.

You bring up a good point. A good enough point that i think everyone should look at it again. I remember this I always assumed it was heero's eyes. since it all flashes so quick. With this screen cap. tho the eyes are brown and thinly shaped. I don't recalled many brown eyes as well (a fact that always pissed me off because I have brown eyes)

I always assumed zero, if it was something, was a male....soul? I'm not sure how to define zero itself but I always figured it was male.

So to think that a female based being is always with Heero and heero talks to so much..its an interesting thought. Its also really late lol and I've been doing math homework so the brain is a little fried.

From the virtical look down on the Deathscythe's Wing/flight unit equipment it looks like a bat's wings while open. So more mechanical precursor to the Deathscythe Hell's wings? And yeah Sandrock with Oilfant legs for high speed hovering is kinda nifty. But I got a look at an image from Dengeki hobby showing an outline of the Deathscythe with that Wing pack so there's a chance we might see an upgrade kit in the not so distant future for the MG, or even a special version release of the EW suits equipment packs... knowing Bandai i wouldn't put it past them.

I don't like the wings. Deathscythe Hell and Deathscythe Hell Custom had wings. No need for the first entry in the line to have them.

O_O I barely remember that scene but I've always thought those were Heero's eyes. It's strange... I wonder whose eyes those are.

The wings look... odd. And skinny. I don't know how I feel about it. :|

Stocky stocky stockyyy! As much as I love an FA Sandrock to make it really look like that tank that it's supposed to be... It does look kinda weird to have such burly looking limbs for an MS with a tiny waist... Still... those guns. Nice.
