Gaiden CA Blu-ray

Its arrived! Vympel 03:27, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the news. Now if only there were funding to animate more side stories. Wouldn't mind a Battle of Dagon documentary. Iracundus 23:11, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

Alba create completed model update

Nice good look at the Marduk here:- 09:48, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Also nice detail on the Visarr as well as the standard Alliance battleship, cruiser, and destroyer. It is a pity they are not releasing these on a wider basis. One small thing though, I think the shade of green used is a bit deeper than the shade of green seen most often in the series. Iracundus 10:14, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, speaking of Visarr, if you've seen pics of the underside of the model, it looks like that's where it keeps (some of?) its fighter complement:- Vympel 10:44, 27 February 2012 (UTC)
Possibly, and those holes do look similar to those on Barbarossa, but a bit hesitant to conclude anything on that alone. Could also be missile launchers, heat exhaust, or miscellaneous mechanical "greeble". Iracundus 11:09, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

Question re the 1/5000 Alba Create models - do they come with any info book/sheet or anything? Picture on the back? Vympel 00:12, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Nope. Nothing other than the parts and maybe a simple diagram to show where to attach the antennas. Iracundus 00:24, 7 April 2012 (UTC)
Bah. Well bugger them then :) Vympel 00:34, 7 April 2012 (UTC)

Gaiden name captions

Can you confirm if the variant of Hassliche Entlein spelling I used in the valkyrie launch screencap for the Imperial cruiser is correct? I pulled it from the Japanese side-view .gif website. Vympel 05:20, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

It is given as Häßliche Entchen in the Retriever DVD. Iracundus 05:32, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
Cool I'll change it. Need to do an entry for that ship ... Vympel 05:43, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Missile cruiser LD artbook scan 11:36, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, and it looks like the assault ship sketches are there too. Enough stuff to work on for the weekend, though the data on these ships is rather lacking. It is a pity both the LD art binder and DVD sketches have almost all the writing too small for legibility as I think that would be very helpful in revealing some of what the designers were thinking. Iracundus 12:22, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, the assault ship also appears on this page:- Also the thought occurs to me the reason for the engine error in the Gaiden about the Alliance cruiser may be the artists were using the missile cruiser as a basis by mistake.Vympel 12:27, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
Possible. The missile cruiser after all is really just an extreme variant of the other. It is interesting that we don't ever see it in the main series. The obvious real life reason of course is that I think it was designed afterwards, but possibly the in-universe reason could be that the assault on Iserlohn concentrated and lost most of the production of this variant. Its extreme ammunition requirements and weak defensive abilities may have led to cost-benefit analysis deciding in favour of standard cruisers over this variant. Certainly that is the impression the FFC and Databook seem to give about the various Alliance squadron flagships. Now the question is what in-universe reason would explain the lack of the Imperial version in the main series. Iracundus 12:45, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
Side note: In the upper left of the 2nd image, the caption gives the katakana name of the Imperial cruiser that Julian destroyed on his first outing as a Spartanian pilot. But translating those to a German name is hard since I am not familiar with German. I think it is Lenbach Iracundus 13:01, 13 January 2012 (UTC)


Photocopied it then scanned it through:- 23:09, 5 December 2011 (UTC)

Chinese names

Hey! Irrespective of whether we put the names at the top like we were discussing before, i do think it's a good idea to compile all of the Chinese names for every properly named subject in the series. Since you're kind of developing into our 'Chinese-language person', would you be willing to help us out in that respect?

What i was thinking specifically is like a text file or spreadsheet containing a mapping of the English names of characters, places, ships, and so on to their Chinese-language equivalents. If i had a list like that i think i might be able to have our bot automatically add them all to their respective articles under the Name variations sections. (And even if not, it'd still be extremely valuable.)

Could you do something like that if you ever have time? Thanks!  ♥ kine @ 03:53, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

It is possible though I admit I don't really see the point outside of the Chinese descended characters, who would be expected to have Chinese names already (within the universe). It would only be of value with respect to Chinese readers trying to find the Japanese or English version from the Chinese. (which is the hardest part of doing the Dagon story translation, trying to find out what Germanic names those Chinese translations are referring to) Iracundus 03:59, 2 October 2011 (UTC)
Yeah i guess that's part of it. I don't know, it's not critical, but i enjoy compiling things like that, so if you ever get bored feel free :p  ♥ kine @ 04:34, 2 October 2011 (UTC)

Iracundus, sorry for tainting a page but I cannot find a way to contact you. Where did this "transition" information come from regarding the New Empire's shift to a constitutional monarchy? I should also mention that you edit of my additions was flawless and you made me sound a great deal more knowledgeable than I am. Thank you.

Remember to sign your post with 4 ~ to get the signature and time date stamp. The information comes from episode 109-110. Though it is never explicitly confirmed what happened afterwards, it is implied that the Empire considered and possibly applied constitutional reforms. Hilda was always more of a moderate and mediator than the more authoritarian Reinhard. Her focus was always more on the domestic aspect of things while Reinhard was in his dreams of conquest. As a stylistic counterpoint, it also is appropriate. The Empire physically conquers the Alliance, but in turn democratic ideals are introduced into it, a sort of reverse conquest that tempers the potential excesses of unlimited autocratic power. Otherwise one might critique the ending as really a repeat of the founding of the Goldenbaum dynasty, though I suppose some might argue that too is stylistically appropriate as another turning of the historical cycle. However we know from episode 110 that Reinhard did not seem particularly vested in continuation of a dynasty and was insistent that the one in charge have the talent and ability, in other words a meritocracy, and that is better accomplished when the ruler is not selected purely because of bloodline. Iracundus 15:55, 5 April 2013 (UTC)

Very good, thank you. I would debate the meritocracy leading to a complete constitutional monarchy but valid points none the less. Strayor 23:25, 9 April 2013 (UTC)

Fleet File Vol 3R

Enjoy Vympel 02:04, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

Hey, Just checking that you've seen this, am sure you're interested Vympel 02:22, 24 February 2017 (UTC)

Yes, I've seen it, and intend to get round to it once RL permits more time. From a super quick cursory skim, there are a few details but I didn't spot anything dramatically new and groundbreaking. Iracundus 22:15, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
