I think that was debunked a page or two later on from that quote. I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure it was determined that there was no blood between the Peacecrafts, and the Winners.

Same, I'm also interested in the history-bit plus I do want to see how this pans out. Although I'm kind of loosing heart a bit.

Oh good god, thanks for clearing that up. That would've been one step too far

But that has nothing to do with why people are complaining about it. They are complaining, because it is stupidly written to the extend of bordering on insanity/ is practically pissing on the characters in some cases.
Well said Mrs. Fearie! The fact that it's a sequel isn't why people are hating, it's the content. Or as I like to explain it:

The first Batman movie in 1989 is generally looked at as AWESOME! (ok, maybe just a great movie). Batman Returns was great in it's own right, but it started to feel a little odd, different... Regardless, it is still acceptable and within the realm that was set up by the first movie (it's a sequel after all). Then came Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, two movies which literally raped the franchise. If those two movies had been made with the intention to parody the 1966 tv series, then they would have been successful. Unfortunately, they were branded as sequels to the first two, making them epic failures and a laughing stalk to this day.

Of course, this doesn't always have to happen. No body wanted another Batman movie because of what those 2 films did... No studio even wanted to touch that idea again. And then we got The Dark Knight. Suddenly, everyone is LOVING the film! Why? Because it makes sense! It's not too far-fetched and we can believe it.

We all love GundamW (as flawed as it is). We were all excited when we heard that there was going to be a sequel... and then we started to read the sequel. And then most of us started to go "WTF..?" I do agree that a lot of the pre-AC 195 stuff (as hard to swallow as it is) is pretty good, but the MC stuff is just so teenage-girlie-fanficish. It just leaves you numb after a while.

Ohh... and having a good story helps too.



P.S.
SkullFearie, I'm glad that there is someone else who thinks the same about Heero & Relena's post EW relationship. You are awesome!

translating: sumizawa is learning some tricks with....... stephanie meyer

at least its good to see that someone else thinks the same thing about this entire teen-ish story in MC, instead of something more dark or closer to char's counterattack, in terms of a Mars vs Earth war

Question: has FT mentioned mention why Hilde began to research nanotech? Or what happened to her research after her death?

Sabrina is the one facing Katrina who is looking directly out from the cover. Its in the bangs...

Also I agree with the above statement. I would kill to get a full shot of Tallgeese in full color without it being broken up by people being in front of it...

As for the images yeah noticed it long ago with the Mariemaia soldiers and the like... Less so for Duke Dermail sporting Napoleon's threads...

Has anyone else noticed a few things that are pretty similar to Metal Gear Solid 4 with Frozen Teardrop? Such as...

Relena's nanomachine hook up that is used to control the population akin to the nanomachines controlling the soldiers?

Or that Heero Yuy (the pilot) is a genetically modified human being that to be the "perfect soldier" akin to Les Enfants Terribles? (Though why they would want him to be modified to look like a politician is a question beyond me...)

Or how in the world Duo is rapidly aging like Solid Snake was?

Sigh...I guess that now all we need is Gato's Gundam Physalis then I can start shouting "METAL GEAR!!"

Because while what you're saying usually does apply to an extend, in this case the novel actually isn't good- based on pretty much every letter printed in it ^^'' People aren't disappointed for the sake of being disappointed, but because it's i n s a n e.

@IkuzeMinna: It's always dangerous to use famous epic music ANYWHERE (famous "classic" is pushing it but possible), but arghhh in a novel. It's very 2005 bad fanfic author like. I mean, I can't think of any movie that could pull it off, let alone anime, not even to mention written works. It just screams "parody"; so the natural reaction is to crack up xD

Btw, am I reading this right, Quaterine is related to the Peacecrafts now? SIGH...
Examples are golden, they present a great path to understanding and what I was actually seeking in asking the question. As it stands I can only take peoples word for it, but yeah...an example of what people don't like about the novel would be amazing.

Well, there's so many things, you'd probably do better reading just any summary about any chapter, but I can try
Just note that this might be incoherent because almost everything in this book is, well, mad.
To sum it up, I guess you could say the problem is that this novel is taking a show that was about grapes and is making it all about apples.
The story is nothing like what GW was like, it's not about politics, or war, or even about the characters in it, despite the original cast appearing. It's about some drug, popsicled people, generation xerox, clones, and every single person acting various levels of insane.

With regards to the original cast: Relena (now conveniently sporting Zechs' mask), prettified by conveniently being popsicled while the rest of the cast aged, going seemingly lunatic, possibly villainous just to turn around and apparently be some person that must under all circumstances be killed because of some tragic incident that links her to some drug that forces people to, uh, be pacifists. Which is obviously bad. Free will and stuff. Oh and it also makes you age faster which is why poor Duo is an old fart now.

Additional cast: some X amount of Milliardos, Milliardo clones or a Milliardo imposter who is actually Noin's brother. Let's not forget that he's pretending to be his sister's husband and that he looked nothing like Milliardo apparently.

With regards to the past characters: The novel is establishing connection between pretty much every one, there are now a million people all called various versions of "Katherine", some crap about Relena's ancestors (can't remember if the twins were her mother and aunt or grandmother and great aunt ^^'') who both look exactly like her, and at least one of which was a mecha pilot: How exactly she ended up marrying a militant pacifist beats me btw.

New cast: All conveniently look like the original cast, except sometimes genderbent. Quaterine especially stands out as an example of "makes no sense at all", what with being Quatre's spare set of organs and probably somehow cloned from him when Quatre was always opposed to this kind of shit.

And don't get me started on Heero, past Heero and the other Heero (!!??) who has something to do with the Peacecraft twins.
I swear I'm not making this up

... to highlight some "gems" this novel came up with.. sigh... we all wanted to like this so badly I think, but it's hard because shit isn't making any sense.

edit: or one could just read Ikuze's summary, that was a good one

One merely needs to refer back to Ikuze's accurate summary on the matter:

http://forums.animesuki.com/showthre...07#post3932107

For once, Kaioshin, the negativity behind this Gundam project is entirely justified.

Thanks, for some reason I thought she was researching this well before Duo's travels to Mars.


I have another question that I've been mauling over for a while...

Frozen Teardrop is establishing that the Wyvern (it's a gundam, right? Epyon is a gundam and it was supposed to have been designed from the Wyvern, right?) was created/ commissioned by Heero Politician and piloted by Kathrina(?)Peacecracft... I'm assuming at this point that it was Dr. J who actually built it god know where or with what money/backing (So help me if it's the Sanc Kingdom, I will SHANK a computer!). So where does this leave the Tallgeese? It was clearly being build at around the same time that Heero Politician was murdered and that seems to be well after the Wyvern saw action. Wasn't the Tallgeese supposed to be the model that all 5 gundams where derived from, in essence it was the first "gundam". And wasn't the Tallgeese created back in the day when MSs were starting to appear in the A.C. era?

Examples are plentiful, and like mentioned before, really crazy.

We have an 11 year old stealing a gundam and, having never had any training, much less touching a Mobile Suit, seems to be an ACE who can waste her enemies by playing some sort of Guitar Hero-like program in her gundam. At this point, why even bother training people to be pilots? Wait... Oud must have been younger then 11 when she first piloted a mobile suit, right?

People who have NO blood relation to one another look EXACTLY like former gundam pilots, even though the original 5 pilots all claim to not have any children of their own.

We have no idea what side the real Zechs is actually on.

Dorothy Catalonia ordered the hit on Relena for an unclear reason.

And much, MUCH more. Honestly, just skim through the whole of this thread and you'll get a pretty good idea.
