  1. Can I go straight to watching this without having watched Logos?
  2. I only found out about this today and it's ending today JP time, but just in case anyone wants to take the survey: https://mechasmile.com/moderoidsurvey2023/ There's an option for English. But I don't like to login to Google just to take a survey, so I just looked. If anyone wants to request a series, now's your chance!
  3. So my Viola Katze is shipping soon. However, I think the matte look is boring. Would it be better to do a gloss top coat? I don't plan on painting it as I don't have the time (and I have never painted a kit before).
  4. I'm drooling at the Nirvash and Raxhephon. Not sure if I'll still want them when they become available though haha.
  5. Thanks for the write-up! I've only been to AFA once and I don't really care for artists I don't know, so I'm not really interested in going again. Good to know what's going on there esp. with our favorite galactic songstress.

    Hi-Metal R

    Wow, Bandai has great timing with these teasers. I'm expecting a salary increase next year šŸ¤¤ While I'm most excited for stuff from the OG series, that VF-0D looks really nice.
  7. So I cancelled them. I don't want to have open orders and then find the same items for sale in the mall...
  8. Has anybody gotten the HG Aerial already? I saw some pics on Twitter, and it's backordered now at HLJ. I still haven't gotten my Shenlong and I feel like cancelling both in frustrationšŸ˜©
  9. Oh well, I was hoping to ship it along with the items already in my PW. If it gets delayed that far it would be shipping with the HG Aerial. Hopefully my preorder makes the cut for an earlier arrival than the Shenlong.
  10. Thanks, I haven't been ordering much lately (or since the pandemic hit, actually) so I didn't notice. Who's the most reliable seller nowadays?
  11. Has anybody here already got their HGAC Shenlong from HLJ? There's already reviews but my PW doesn't have it. If it's only me who hasn't gotten one I was thinking of inquiring from them about it...
  12. Glad I got their books from the Humble Bundle sale a while ago. Physical books are better but I don't have the space for them (and they are so low on my priority list). Would have taken me ages to get to them, and would probably go out of print by then.
  13. Thanks. Now that I've seen (or re-seen?) that, it now reminds me of Ai-kun space form. It's the mecha version haha

    Macross Books

    Isn't this expensive for just 96 pages?
  15. Yeah those marine type suits have odd designs. That looks like a big insect! Was this in UC? I don't remember it.
  16. They may be making more money on limited editions if they have certain number of orders. But I'm not in the gunpla business so I'm not sure if that's true. Anyway, are there any other quirky suits like the Kapool and Wodom? I got the Build Divers version of those because I thought they were funny. (Basically a lot of Turn A suits are in this category.) I don't really follow the UC timeline after 08th MS Team (have tried to finish Zeta I am still not done lol). For alternate U I watched several episodes of IBO but dropped it.
  17. Does that include raw materials? So much stuff is made in China or have raw materials come from there it always comes to mind whenever shortages occur. As for HLJ, I'll try that BO order once the preorder is in (or maybe a week before it's in?). I've also noticed that private warehouse is now unlimited (is that really true). But I want to ship as soon as possible to avoid the xmas shopping season.
  18. So I wasn't imagining it then. I wonder if it's the recent lockdowns in China, and they couldn't get kits out faster? If there's less stuff to go around now I pity those who do lots of Xmas shopping, to deal with low supply and inflation. (Inflation has also been high here in the Philippines.) The gunpla selection in the local stores has also been dwindling (at least the dept. stores). Online, it depends.
  19. Is there a shortage of kits right now? A lot of items in HLJ seem to be backordered. I was looking for something to go with a planned preorder but the lack of choices is discouraging. I also checked on Amazon but I had a recent stressful experience where they mislabeled a shipment. Thankfully it was sorted out but I kind of don't want to order from them for a while.
  20. Is this the reason I can't see the latest posts from my followed topics anymore? EDIT: Looks like I have to re-follow then.
  21. Indeed Overlord's writing is way better, but it has way darker themes than Leadale that to me it looks like 2 different things. Most stories are formulaic anyway, it's just how it's executed that matters. Or maybe I just don't feel strongly about it? For example I get 'agitated' when I see something trying to copy the Macross formula (mecha + music). (That is why I don't like Macross II.)
  22. I don't get this high level of similarity. Sure they're both isekai, both MC are overpowered, they have NPCs they consider 'children' and then that's it. What the MCs actually do are worlds apart. I like both novels for what they are. 'Leadale' gets some undeserved criticism being compared to Overlord imo. Who cares if the structure of the story are the same, but they're different enough to be enjoyable. That said, Leadale anime does come off a bit generic. I think the LN is more enjoyable as it has more detail (lots of stuff cut in the anime), and as long as you don't expect high literature or the like.
