Mobile Suit Gundam » To Gundam Fanatics: A Challenge

I don't believe the novels ever specifically state his birthday... The only way we know he was born specifically in UC 0044 is because we're told he's 35 in 0079. There's all that mumbo jumbo about Degwin and Zeon Zum Deikun, and then they say Dewin had children, but they don't specify when.

Yoko Littner » yoko my new favorite character

Oh..... I didn't know you guys were talking about other episodes too.

In that case what you said makes sense. I originally thought the part about Nia winning the competitions was an attempt by Gainax in their ridiculous fashion doing crazy stuff for w/e about Nia being a whacko clone or something since she was created by the spiral king er something, though actually what you said makes sense (and considering it's Gainax, that may very well have been their intention...who knows what's going through their heads).

And trust me, I share your sentiments when it comes to producers destroying a character. The anime adaptation of F/SN made Rin Tohsaka look barely short of being a little indecisive b----, and needless to say, that's not how she was in the game. Then again, that was moreso the fault of adaptation decay and Studio Deen at least rather than the original creators, but still, I can relate.

Yoko Littner » yoko my new favorite character

My experience with PTSD is only second hand through a number of my family members, so take that however you will, but I think you two are thinking of different parts of the episode in relation to Yoko's personality during that episode. I agree with Flyvapnet when it comes to Yoko's... what's the right word... strange actions (strange when compared to her previous outgoing personality) during the more serious parts, like when she seems to be contemplating by herself away from the others and when Adiane shows up, etc.

I think Black Rose though is thinking you mean the more playful scenes like when they're all playing on the beach and just generally messing around. The PTSD makes sense on the above parts ^ but I don't think they were applying it so much during the stupid Nia running around with the lolicon idiots' scenes (yeah yeah, whatever was going on there, I think Gainax was trying to make a statement like they tend to in their shows; this case talking about how messed up fanbases can be nowadays, but take it however you will). Granted, her being mostly ignored by the others during those scenes definitely didn't help her already troubled mind from the other events, but all I'm saying is I think the misunderstanding you two are having is stemming from what scenes you're looking at.

Mobile Suit Gundam » STOP PUTTING GUNDAM STUFF UNDER WARTIME ANIME

I'm not entirely sure exactly when they were made, but all I know is that they've been added to articles I have created, some of which were only made less than a month ago. I'm not blaming the mods either, since it probably is someone who is beyond the needing moderation level.

(it's 5000 points now to be mod free? I thought it was 1000...)

Mobile Suit Gundam » STOP PUTTING GUNDAM STUFF UNDER WARTIME ANIME

Seriously, I don't know who's doing it, but it seems that nearly every time I'm working on any of the Gundam pages, someone has re-entered "Wartime anime" as one of the concepts, whether it be for individual gundam object, series, or character pages, and I have to subtract it from that listing. I know it's not gonna mark the end of the world, but people, get your facts straight! Gundam wasn't even written till the late 70s, not the early 30s or 40s!

Wartime anime refers to anime that was MADE AROUND WORLD WAR TWO. It does NOT mean anime that features war! So please, whoever is doing it, STOP!

Mobile Suit Gundam » Real Life Gundam

I don't understand why people would protest a machine that would make it so a team of 20 soldiers (mechanics mostly) could do the work of several tank battalions... or at the very least the country sending the soldiers (like the US) wouldn't be able to complain anymore about deploying so many troops.

Also, if you read my first post, the price of ONE B2 stealth bomber is nearly 3 times as much ($2 Billion) as that bloated estimated price of a mobile suit.

Yeah, they've been around a while Devilly. And Calaveras, I don't think Black Rose is too far off.

Heck, a Gundam in today's world would pretty much be able to replace an entire tank battalion, or at least an entire squadron of bombers. You're basically looking at a walking land-based battleship, complete with fully automatic 150mm cannon(s).

Just Anime » Your Anime Harem.

Allow me to explain the math behind my reasoning that Rin is all you need with my full harem chart power level version:


Basically you could call Rin a segfault, or an asymptote. When you add 10 million to infinity, you still have infinity, and the same is true for subtracting anything other than infinity from infinity. Therefore so long as you have infinity, all the other variables are just constants that will just be overpowered by infinity. (Also those values aren't meant to be perfect relations of how much more I like one character over another; I tried to put them into sort of an order by it's not perfect)

Mobile Suit Gundam » Real Life Gundam

Oh boy... if only I had a dollar every time I hit a site that I frequent that someone referred to this old article...

Prime example: refer to this Japanator article and my comments in it.

To sum up what I said there and add on to it:

"According to the US Government a B2 Stealth bomber costs 2 BILLION dollars to build each currently, so this rooms plenty of room for labor and extra parts. Superconductive motors, sure, but gas turbine engines for 52 million each? and what kind of computer costs 1.55 million?? The super computers on the F35 aren't even half that much.

There is a serious flaw though with their method in using electricity to power it from gas turbines and using electric superconductors. HEAT.
According to my calculations, for a gundam to move at a rate of 60ft/s (assuming it's 60ft tall and roughly 20 tons of weight- 60ft/s then would be a brisk walk for it), it would take approximately 331811.8 Joules of force. Convert that to Watts by dividing by 1 second (since that’s how much power it would take to move 60ft/s for one second), and you get somewhere around 3 MEGAwatts. Even if you divide that up among several turbines, that level of electricity would fry any size wire you could make, or at least require it to be frozen to superconductive levels that'd be nearly impossible in such an environment.

Instead, a better method would be to use individual fuel cell systems installed at each joint or at least on a smaller individual system setup instead of one big power system, so that if one goes down all the others can still function, and in addition to taking a severe load off of any power system, you wouldn't need the massive would be cables that would otherwise be necessary, and leave more room for ammo and guns.

(As you may or may not be able to tell, I research and calculate this kind of stuff for fun- oh, and that stunt in the 5th episode of gundam 00 would've taken well over 300MW of power for Kyrios to push a block roughly 100 times the gundams size- current day full size 4th generation nuclear reactors can barely output that much)
"

After researching further since then, I believe a solid oxide fuel cell system would give the optimal power, durability, and efficiency that we would need for such a project.

"I can honestly say, this is the goal that brought me into engineering, so I have done alot of work on this sort of thing. As for physics computations and the type of stress on the tendon sheets for balancing, assuming they use the same ratio of strength to height that is in human beings, there's no reason that aluminum alloys with over 40 times the strength load to weight ratio wouldn't be able to handle it. As for balancing, there are already several examples of dynamically balancing robots on two legs out there (Dynamically balancing means it can walk in a similar way real people do by reacting to shifts in weight and forces - NOT pre-programmed leg movements like say the Honda Asimo). The entire concept is very possible, the issue is it's not very practical, at least for most uses anyway. Something along the lines of an Arm Slave would be alot more practical for military use, but Gundams just look so much cooler.

What bugs me about their calculations is they're thinking from a government price index perspective. You don't need the best most advanced computer in the world, you just need one that's plenty fast enough and extremely durable. Heck, for the kind of computations something that you'd need for something like this, a cluster of 4 quad-core processor computers would be OVERKILL. Just build those inside individually reinforced cases and strengthen the parts for movement and shaking and you've got a great computer that'd cost less than a fraction of a Blue gene IBM machine, not to mention being a heck of a lot more reliable if it takes a hit (in a cluster if one dies you can just switch to using the others). You could say similar things about the other stuff on the list too."

Fair warning, I wrote this over a year ago.

I figure who needs a harem when you can have one that's perfect? :D (plus then it'd be less dangerous if I accidentally upset one of them and they gang up on me; 1 on 1 leaves some chance for escape, 1 on 12....good luck.)

I just updated the image so refreshing may make it appear better now. I m linked it from my googelpage now since AV wanted to crop it to the point where you pretty much couldn't see it.

I have dual monitors, a 19" and a 22", thus the weird resolution. I tried downsizing the capture a bit so that it wouldn't be quite so huge.

You can see my Nanoha rainmeter skin at the bottom of the left monitor and a fair part of my anime related game collection.
Also I customized windows to be a bit more Kara no Kyoukai themed if you look at the side panel and background of the window on the right.

Sorry for the large number, I have a folder on my computer specifically for anime jokes.


Literally...
Ouch....


Yeah, an animator somewhere needs to go back to Algebra...
Obligatory Gundam Wing joke...

IN MY PANTS!!!

Making fun of those pictures some Japanese do of an anime character on screen eating something and then they eat the same food with them. Looks pretty tasty...

run...



love the cameos for RX-78, Crossbone Gundam, X Gundam, and several others in the last episode of G Gundam...
As a computer nut, I have no clue how he has a 24 monitor display unless he's got just the keyboard and mouse on a KVM switch between several machines... damn...let's see, Shuffle, ef, Little Busters, pretty soldier, school days....

lol, monster,...

CLAMP's character designs always bugged me...
I would pay the full MSRP for that.

At last count I only have about 350 individual anime DVD discs not counting bonus feature discs for movies... I don't know exactly how many are in that photo but I can safely say I think that photo has more. I'm not even going to attempt to list all of them since that would take too long...

Off-Topic » What's Going Through you Mind Right Now?

Fire trucks, manga I'd like to read right now such as Eyeshield 21, Bakuman, Tsukihime, and The world only god knows, will I feel sick if I eat these breadsticks from a pizza hut express? Is soda more healthy than beer? I really don't want to do my waveform dynamics and statistical probablity homework... Did I do a good job on the wiki edit example of Gundam Wing episode 1? how long will it take me to finish the character information pages...should I bother making pages for some of the less less less important characters such as Otto, Father Maxwell, and Officer Trent?

These are the things passing through my mind this very moment.

Key » What's Your Favorite Key Series

Man... I feel bad... Has anyone else sat down and watched all of the 2002 Kanon all the way through? Looking back I have no idea how I managed to... I must've been really desperate.

Clannad's my favorite. Kanon (either version, doesn't matter too much in terms of the main plot) seemed a bit too out there with it's plot and the main characters all seemed a little too focused on the lead as if all of their lives just rotated around him. Air was just plain awesome, but the part with the bird through me off watching it the first time.... still, I enjoyed it a ton and to this date I can't stand to listen to ending theme because it makes me want to cry...

Clannad though just seems like everything finally came together. The game, although strangely the most suitable, was the only one of the three that wasn't an eroge (I don't want to know how Air was...), and it was tons of fun. The anime itself was pretty good too. The first time watching it through I hadn't played the game, and I thought it was pretty good, but that damn Fuuko was really annoying. After playing the game, I went back, and I still found Fuuko annoying, but what bugged me even moreso was that they spent 5 episodes on "DOUZO STARFISH!!", yet they barely gave Kyou 1!.... the move to give Tomoyo her own OVA though really impressed me and made me extremely happy. In any case, I just think the characters seemed a lot more believeable in Clannad than in Kanon (though I still don't know why the hell they made that moe blob Nagisa the main girl...hell, Kotomi is more interesting and she has trouble speaking normally!)
