[DATABASE] – MSV-R SHIN MATSUNAGA

Hi all,

I’ve updated the database entry for this particular series. Noteworthy additions: comprehensive character listing and volume summaries with chapters. Mechanics and timelines in the near future.

[DATABASE] – BLAZING SHADOW

Hi all,

I’ve updated the Blazing Shadow entry of the database with more characters, mechanics and plot information. There’s currently a summary for Volume 2 as well as a “story thus far” which covers the events in Volume 1. Continuing on, I’ll summarize some points from Gundam Ace dating back to the September 2014 issue (Chapter 7):

09.2014 Gundam Ace

– Cain talks to Wings about everything up til now.
– In order to make up for losing military strength, they pay a visit to an arms dealer by the name of Gervan
– The requested goods are a production model Guncannon and new weapons and ammo for the Silver Haze.
– Since a Guncannon is unobtainable, they’re offered a Saberfish instead.
– Later, a Dom Barrage appears to be loaded onto Cain’s HLV.
– Wings and the others begin their preparation for retalliation against Faraq
– Faraq prepares their squadron. Rougi takes command of the Musai MS forces while Gald, Azu and Mahagan take command of their respective Chivvay forces.

10.2014 Gundam Ace

– Faraq gets their revenge on Shutendouji.
– With Rodinia at their backs, Wings in the Silver Haze, Seria in her High Boost GM and Fernando in the Saber Booster respond to the attack.
– Gald, Azu and Mahagan are each accompanied by 4 other units.
– Gald’s High Mobility Gelgoog’s damaged right arm has been repaired with a Z’Gok’s.
– Wings takes on Gald’s team while Seria and Fernando square off against Azu’s team. Mahagan’s team goes on watch for sniping.
– Wings and the others pretend the mothership is at Rodinia while awating the movement of the enemy ship concealed in the nearby colony of Mauritia.
– Cain is also standing by at Mauritia.
– Faraq fleet falls for the trap in a spendid fashion. Three Chivvay attack Rodinia. The Plunder, having learned of the enemy ships positions, sinks one of the Chivvay’s with its main cannon. Another is neutralized by Cain’s sniping.
– Wings squares off against Gald with a beam saber trident again while Seria and Fernando head off after the remaining Chivvay after having dealt with the Azu team.
– Cain squares off against the Mahagan team that realized he was shooting.

[DATABASE] Reconguista in G

I’ve added a database entry for the latest Gundam series: GUNDAM Reconguista in G. You can view it here.

10 Years? Sweet Jesus… I need a life…

It’s hard to believe that ten years ago everything started. Ten years of memories I can still laugh at via the logs I still have for some reason. I know this past year has been rather dead for us… and I had every intention of closing up shop, but for some reason I just keep chugging along… dropping and adding more projects in a fashion worse than ever. I guess part of me is still hellbent on delivering a bunch of unfinished series since /m/ and what not harps on them time and time again. Plus, I now have that reputation for not finishing anything. Whoopsie!

It’s been a rough journey, full of emo rants/closings/dropped projects/spats and everything else under the sun. But, the community has always been there and receptive of what I’ve managed to crank out over the years. It’s been a solo project for quite a while. I guess that is why it’s so hard for me to keep up sometimes. I have ADHD when it comes to finishing one particular series. One day it’ll happen! Until then, always many great things in store. But more on that later. Here’s a somewhat extensive, yet not all inclusive list of people I’d like to thank:

Many of those names are from IRC so god knows what name they go by now. Ah, I have so many fond memories of IRC and my early college years of screwing around online instead of heading to class. To the many friends I’ve made over the years, thank you for your help! To the staff that tirelessly worked on my projects: I’m still indebted. To the fans who continue to donate to see these projects come to light: you are what keep me going. Don’t ever give up. Without you I don’t even bother.

I keep saying I’m going to hang up my dictionary and uninstall Photoshop as a means of saying farwell, but I guess it just isn’t my time. As the clock ticks and I get older, I suppose the wise old sage in me says “keep going, correct the fallicies!” One day I can retire in peace! :P I know most of you expected a massive Gundam dump here for the anniversary, but work has been rather hectic and drama filled on my end, so I will definitely spread it out over the course of the month. Then again, I quipped on Twitter that it’d be a year long endevor. Yeah, that sounds about right ;)

I will definitely have some stuff out shortly. There’s a plan in place. One that will hopefully get my ass caught up once and for all… by that point I probably wouldn’t know what to do with myself.

Here’s to continuing to keep the light burning. Cheers to 10 years. God help me if I’m doing this again in another ten!

P.S. It’s only been three years since the last CDA release. Oh god. Little did I know that my joke of, “I guess we’ve filled the quota for the next three years.” would be true! D:!
