The term can refer to a set, a television program. Television is a medium for entertainment, education, news, politics, gossip. Television became available in experimental forms in the late s.
After World War II, a form of black-and-white TV broadcasting became popular in the United States and Britain, and television sets became commonplace in homes, businesses.
During the s, television was the medium for influencing public opinion. In the mids, color broadcasting was introduced in the US, for many reasons, the storage of television and video programming now occurs on the cloud. At the end of the first decade of the s, digital television transmissions greatly increased in popularity, another development was the move from standard-definition television to high-definition television, which provides a resolution that is substantially higher.
In the near future, LEDs are gradually expected to be replaced by OLEDs, also, major manufacturers have announced that they will increasingly produce smart TVs in the mids. Smart TVs with integrated Internet and Web 2. Alternatively television signals are distributed by cable or optical fiber, satellite systems and. Until the early s, these were transmitted as analog signals, a standard television set is composed of multiple internal electronic circuits, including a tuner for receiving and decoding broadcast signals.
The Anglicised version of the term is first attested in and it was. In the 19th century and early 20th century, other. The abbreviation TV is fromthe use of the term to mean a television set dates from 5. Romance love — Romance is the expressive and pleasurable feeling from an emotional attraction towards another person often associated with sexual attraction.
It is eros rather than agape, philia, or storge, historically, the term romance originates with the medieval ideal of chivalry as set out in its chivalric romance literature. Humans have an inclination to form bonds with one another through social interactions.
The debate over an exact definition of love may be found in literature as well as in the works of psychologists, philosophers, biochemists and other professionals.
The addition of drama to relationships of close, deep and strong love, psychologist Charles Lindholm defined love to be. The word was originally an adverb of the Latin origin Romanicus, the connecting notion is that European medieval vernacular tales were usually about chivalric adventure, not combining the idea of love until late into the seventeenth century.
In primitive societies, tension existed between marriage and the erotic, but this was expressed in taboo regarding the menstrual cycle. There may not be evidence, however, that members of such societies formed loving relationships distinct from their established customs in a way that would parallel modern romance, before the 18th century, many marriages were not arranged, but rather developed out of more or less spontaneous relationships. After the 18th century, illicit relationships took on an independent role.
In bourgeois marriage, illicitness may have become more formidable and likely to cause tension, in Ladies of the Leisure Class, Rutgers University professor Bonnie G. Smith depicts courtship and marriage rituals that may be viewed as oppressive to modern people. She writes When the young women of the Nord married, they did so without illusions of love and they acted within a framework of concern for the reproduction of bloodlines according to financial, professional, and sometimes political interests.
Subsequent sexual revolution has lessened the conflicts arising out of liberalism, anthony Giddens, in his book The Transformation of Intimacy, Sexuality, Love and Eroticism in Modern Society, states that romantic love introduced the idea of a narrative into an individuals life. He adds that telling a story was one of the meanings of romance, according to Giddens, the rise of romantic love more or less coincided with the emergence of the novel.
It was then that romantic love, associated with freedom and therefore the ideals of romantic love, for the discourse of intimacy emotional closeness was much more important than passion. This does not mean by any means that intimacy is to replace romance, on the contrary, intimacy and romance coexist.
The 21st century has seen the growth of globalization and people now live in a world of transformations that affect almost every aspect of our lives, one example of the changes experienced in relationships was explored by Giddens regarding homosexual relationships. According to Giddens since homosexuals were not able to marry they were forced to more open 6.
Mobile Suit Gundam 00 — Mobile Suit Gundam 00 is an anime television series, the eleventh installment in Sunrise studios long-running Gundam franchise comprising two seasons. The series aired on the Mainichi Broadcasting System and Tokyo Broadcasting System from October 5, to March 29, the second season began on October 5, and concluded on March 29, Mobile Suit Gundam 00 is the first Gundam television series to be animated in widescreen, the series is set in AD.
As a result of the depletion of fossil fuels, humanity had to search for a new source of power, with this nearly inexhaustible source of energy benefiting only the major powers and their allies, constant warfare erupts around the globe among minor countries for fuels and energy.
Countries that once relied on the sale of fossil fuels have plunged into poverty. Some even believe that solar energy threatened the land of God.
This chaos led to the formation of a military organization, called Celestial Being, dedicated to eradicating war. Mobile Suit Gundam 00 follows four mobile suit pilots termed Gundam Meisters, the main protagonist is year-old Setsuna F. Seiei, a taciturn Gundam pilot who grew up in the war-torn Republic of Krugis. Unable to counter Celestial Beings superior technology, the three major powers eventually unite into the United Nations Army in order to counter Celestial Beings armed interventions, in order to fight the Gundams, the United Nations Army employed the help of Laguna Harvey.
Harvey, a Celestial Being intelligence agent turned traitor, provides them with 30 GN-X, without the tactical aid from the organizations artificial intelligence, Celestial Being is easily overwhelmed and overpowered by GN-X units and their superior numbers. Alejandro Corner, in his unique custom mobile armor Alvatore, attacks Setsuna as the GN-X units proceed to destroy the Ptolemaios, Setsuna struggles with the monstrous Alvatore, but in the end succeeds in killing Alejandro.
Graham Aker, an ace pilot of the United Nations Army, then challenges Setsuna to a fight, seeking revenge for his fallen comrades, the fight results in the destruction of the GN-Flag, while the Exia is heavily damaged. It looks plain badass and the flapping motion of the wings just adds to that insane badassery. Not only was Wing Zero the only Gundam specifically designed for flight operations, it served to emphasize the innocence of Heero i.
Given that the Maganac Corps is made up of Arabs, why are they named after a Tagalog word? Wouldn't it make more sense for them to name themselves after the Turkish or Arabic words for family? I suppose you could say they're named after the class of mobile suits they use, but this still presents a mystery - why are mobile suits built for desert combat named after a word in a language spoken in the Philippines, a country not known for deserts?
A huge number of workers in the Middle East are overseas contract workers from guess where? Whats the deal with Heero going to school? It would seem like he is trying to 'blend in' with the area, to keep a low profile so his mission isn't compromised.
But wouldn't the more logical way to do this be to just stay in the shadows and don't reveal himself at all like that? That's a horrible idea. If he didn't go to school, he couldn't meet Relena. Beyond that, Heero Yuy isn't his real name and was specifically meant for an alias, because being named after the assassinated figure-head your mission of revenge is being fought for is totally discreet. The name "Heero Yuy" is only recognizable to people on the Colonies, to whom he was a hero.
The majority of people on Earth have never heard of the guy. In fact, when Heero does go back to the Colonies, he adopts the alias "Duo Maxwell" because his usual alias would attract too much attention. J gave him just before Operation Meteor launched.
We don't know his real name. And why bother renting apartments or buying food when you can hack a few computers and have a prep school take care of you? This actually gets lampshaded in episode 31 The Glass Kingdom where Dorothy tries to make Heero admit he's "Zero-One" by giving a speech about two people named Heero Yuy the ambassador and the pilot. Heero responds that there are at least two more guys at the school named Heero Yuy, suggesting that it's not uncommon for people to name their children in honor of the man.
Maybe he just doesn't like the fact that he's a Junior since his real name is Odin Lowe Jr. If he told people his real name, god knows Duo would call him Junior, and Heero doesn't want to start with the Last Crusade running gag. IIRC Heero enrolled into Relena's school, the first time, to be around her; I guess to either keep an eye on her out of fear she'd expose him or just find the right time to kill her. She met him when he washed up on the shore, remember?
Then he conviently has a seat next to her as if he orchestrated it. I vaguely remember him staring her down as he introduced himself to the class. That is a plausible reason to enroll in a school, especially if he's extremely paranoid about being found out. There were several times where he enrolled into a school. They didn't NEED to in order to get to the base they were suppose to destroy. I question the validity behind her needing to meet Duo I think their interaction in the entire series ended after the bit where he greets her as "oujosan" and the whole Duo shooting Heero so that Heero wouldn't shoot Relena.
I can see Duo just simply wanting to be around people his own age and do mundane things like play basketball inbetween curbstomping people with his gundam, but it isn't like some kids, who "don't exist", not going to school would raise any suspicion.
You'd think it increases their risk of being recognized and discovered. Not that I mind seeing them in uniforms. How come Quatre has pale skin, blonde hair, and green eyes when the other Arabs in the series have more realistic complexions? It's been suggested that he's a Berber.
Supported by the fact that his full name is given in source material as Quatre Raberba Winner. Interestingly, he's the only character with an explicitly mentioned middle name.
Besides, the Berbers are known to grow blond hair on occasion. Or it could be that part of his family lineage is from a Middle Eastern country with predominantly non-Arabic populations. Iran, for example, has a fairly significant number of natives with blonde hair and blue or green eyes. They could be going for a Lawrence of Arabia type thing. He takes after his mother read Episode Zero. This troper always figured his mother Katherine was of European descent, hence making Quatre half-Arabic, half-whatever Euro-country you want.
This troper assumes French, based on her and Quatre's names. IIRC, Quatre's father and sister were also white.
His father had similar features although Quatre probably gets his pale blond hair from his mother Interestingly, there is actually a powerful white family in Jordan with the last name Winner irl.
Why are none of the Gundams apparently built for Arctic conditions? Wing was built to have superior aerial ability. Deathscythe was designed for stealth, and the first few episodes show it has adaptations for aquatic combat.
Sandrock is designed for desert combat, and Shenlong seems to be intended for forest and jungle encounters. Heavy Arms is most likely designed for urban combat, given that it doesn't seem to have any advantage when Heero and Trowa go to meet Zechs in Antarctica. However, the fact that there is fighting in Antarctica and OZ seems to have a substantial military presence in Siberia suggest that at least one gundam designed to excel in Arctic conditions would be a sensible move.
And this Arctic Gundam was supposed to do what? Have jet ski legs and ice beams? The five Gundams were built based on the blue print for the Wing Zero and customized based on the pilot's preferences.
I don't recall any source mentioning specifically that they were adapted to specific terrains. Me'thinks Okawara just had some theme fever left over from G Gundam when he made these designs.
I've got a simple answer for this one: Who the hell would want Antarctica? It's made blatantly obvious that the base is literally the only thing on the entire continent. The answer to this question is "whoever wants the local natural resources".
Not economic to exploit with today's means, the technology of AC may be advanced enough for it, and the military presence may be caused by either defending the workers from raiders or preventing illegal mining operations, depending on the treaties there currently is a ban on those.
Also, from Antarctica you can block the passage from Cape Horn, effectively isolating the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to anything too big to cross Panama and forcing whoever finds the souther route faster to take the long way. The Gundams do seem adapted to specific conditions, as shown by their weapon loadout and equipment Heavyarms seems biased toward long range fire support, Shenlong and Altron seems more geared to close range combat, Deathscythe and Deathscythe Hell have superior stealth abilities, and Sandrock, with its scarce weapons and the strongest armour, seems more geared to command than actual fighting.
Wing, on the other hand, is more of a Jack of All Trades with an added flying ability. That said, the Gundams are easily capable of surviving the much worse cold of space and capable of moving on the snow just fine, so an Arctic Gundam would have been redundant.
Zechs to a pair of OZ pilots: Yeah, it's just a bad translation for the early episodes - and there were still some "Blind Idiot" Translation lines found in the final episodes as well. I think somebody explained this on another page but I'm not sure which so I'll try to remember it here: It is just a translation error. A case of transliteration copying word for word rather than translation paraphrasing to make it more accessible to the foreign language. It's already been stated above that this was the case.
Truth be told, translating in general is not as easy as repeating the words, you have to also be aware of context and the fact that some languages apply multiple conditional meanings to words. In fact, the reason Japan got bombed so readily was due to a politician using "mokusatsu" which can mean "no comment" or "we are ingoring it with great disdain. It has been some months since this troper actually saw this episode, but this troper saw something that he found really bizarre and will now try to relate it to the best of his memory.
At one point during the final duel between the Wing Zero and the Epyon inside Libra, the Wing Zero fires a salvo from its vulcans at the Epyon, which has just darted offscreen, and Which does not in fact have any guns. It's been explained that this was an animation error Just because Treize didn't give Epyon range weapons doesn't mean you can't appropriate a beam cannon from a downed Taurus or such.
It was this tropers opinion that the vulcans were installed by Trieze, as an anti missile measure. I mean, it is not like vulcans are helpful in MS battle anyway. There are numerous conflicting canon entries on whether the Epyon has Vulcans installed- they aren't much good against actual mobile suits unless used at point blank range and are really only used against missiles or threats that it wouldn't be feasible to use beam rifles or Mobile Suit-sized melee weapons against.
So, wait a minute. The rebels send the five Gundam pilots to Earth to start wrecking things left and right. So why do none of the pilots have any clue who the others are? Duo shoots Heero repeatedly when they first meet and only realizes that Heero's a pilot when he tries to destroy both of the resurfacing Gundams. And Quatre arrives with cavalry to save Trowa when he runs out of bullets, and what does Trowa do?
Immediately attack Quatre and doesn't stop until Quatre gets out of his suit and tells him to stop. Honestly, this was one of the most poorly organized rebellions this troper has ever seen.
When you say "Honestly, this was one of the most poorly organized rebellions this troper has ever seen. This is not a rebellion, its a terrorist attack. And it is common for one cell to not know about the other cells. There was no communication permitted between the colonies until OZ took over. If the Mad Scientists hadn't been Crazy-Prepared for years in advance, the attacks would almost certainly have failed, and even they had no idea if any of their colleagues had completed their own Gundams.
It's also hinted at in Endless Waltz that, because the final result of Operation Meteor was to drop a colony on Earth, that the Gundams were sent merely as a means to cause chaos to distract everyone from the incoming colony. If the Gundam Pilots didn't know about each other, this'd actually cause ''more'' chaos, and if even one was captured, they'd have no information on the others or their suits. If this is the case, then the colonies are gambling their strongest advantage on this.
I doubt they would risk losing one of the Gundams and their pilots, fighting an ally none the less, for the sake of chaos. And even without radio communication, they could of still communicated through messengers.

- Volcanoes and volcanology Geology.
An operation like this takes a lot of time to plan, I am sure they could of sent messengers to each pilot to tell say "Oh, by the way, there are four other Gundams working on this operation. They didn't give a damn what happened to them not even the doctors did, really- they sent them on so many suicide missions it made me feel so god awfully sorry for the guys. Their purpose was to cause chaos and destruction up until the point a colony was able to be dropped.
As for the communication- if such extreme measures were taken to cut off all communication between colonies imagine if a country forced multiple countries to cut off communication — it would be barbaric to say the least, and in GW it was barbaricthey'd most likely be monitoring any incoming or outgoing traffic. Actually, I think traffic was prohibited between colonies as well. It wouldn't be something as simple as smuggling some messengers across a border. The colonies are VERY far apart from one another — despite the technology in this show, there is no "warp system", travel still takes just about if not as long as it does in reality.
Remember it was weeks before Quatre could retrieve the gundams from Venus' orbit. The colonies are self-sufficient, far beyond even being their own country, they're practically their own worlds — just to emphasize how far apart the colonies already are, disregarding the communication terimation. I believe it was also implied that the colonies had no communication with Earth, either.
The colonies are NOT next door to Earth or other colonies. Not only that, at one point they WERE working together, which is where they designed the original gundams and probably came up with the idea of Operation Meteor. By the time the show started, however, the doctors rebelled against doing something so horrible or in some cases the pilots themselves initated the rebellion, like Duo.
Not all the pilots were cherry-picked from the start. Trowa basically just walked up and offered to pilot his gundam after the original intended pilot was, uh, dispatched. The entire thing was a puppet-show, however, orchestrated by an entity on Earth to seize control of the colonies at the cost of Earth. EW was basically about the revival of the original intention, which is why you had Mariemaia come in. This is a common tactic with terrorist organizations. The different cells or in this case, pilots are not given any information about the others so in the event that they are captured, they can't divulge anything that would compromise the objective.
Couldn't they at least once mention that tatic, to explain this? Okay, here's the answer. Operation Meteor was a plan to drop a colony on Earth, causing massive death and destruction world-wide. But the scientists and pilots involved in the plan weren't willing to slaughter innocents, and only wanted to target OZ. So each of the pilots worked with the scientists to steal the suits from the Operation Meteor people, came to Earth, and targetted OZ, not knowing about the others.
That all 5 of the Gundam pilots involved came down was fortunate coincidence. However, OZ thought they were working together because they had intel of the original Operation Meteor that the Gundam pilots abandoned.
Considering that the original plan was for the Gundams to attack military targets while a colony dropped onto the planet, they were likely intended to identify each other by the simple expediancy of being the only Gundams on the planet fighting OZ and the Alliance. It's when they scrapped Operation Meteor and went undercover that the inability to recognize each other became a liability. I always had the impression they all knew of the others and had no idea the others had scrapped Operation Meteor too, hence why they attacked each other on sight until circumstances forced them to talk Heero and Duo were unable to fight each other, Trowa found himself fighting a Gundam and a small army and found more convenient accept Quatre's request for a talk, and Wufei met the others at the right moment to break up a fight between the two pairs and point out they had been had.
This troper is extremely confused by the Latin-American dub. Quatre talks about "loving" Trowa in both the fight with Dorothy and another scene. Fangirls like to speculate that the dub made Quatre's crush on Trowa canon.
How likely is it that "love" was meant in a platonic buddy buddy kind of way? Different cultures have different associations with words like that, I was thinking that maybe in Latin American it's ok to talk about loving another dude in a brotherly way I've watched the dub in a few different languages and the Latin-American one is the only one that uses the word "love. It's pretty much an equicalent to the Japanese verb "aishiteru", and more often than not it's only used in very special occasions like when you want to propose to the person you're speaking to.
Yes, but the Japanese version doesn't have any lines even remotely similar to that. That makes the translation even more mysterious. It only put the Gundam in a few pieces that should have been pretty easy to put back together, and didn't kill the pilot. For a device that was supposed to destroy the technology so the enemy couldn't use it, the button was awfully useless. And never mind the completely out-of-the-blue timing to use it.
It's not like the Gundams were really losing, considering their ability to take any number of machine gun hits without any noticeable damage.
The self-destruct was supposed to destroy the cockpit the only essential part of the mobile suit and it did just that.Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Capitulo 17 HD Español Latino
Without the cockpit, all the enemy could gather was the raw materials used to make the mobile suit, and they already knew what it was made of.
It's possible the self-destruct was only designed to destroy the really "sensitive" parts of the Wing Gundam computer systems, power plant, weapons systems, etc.
All the stuff the Gundam scientists invented themselves that OZ couldn't duplicate. Alternatively, maybe Doctor J underestimated just how resilient a mobile suit made of gundanium would be and misjudged the size of the self-destruct charge. Also, as far as the timing for using it goes, if I remember right, it wasn't the Gundams in danger, but the colonies.
Given the choice between letting the colonies get destroyed, or surrendering the Gundam, he took the third choice of self-destruction. J found Heero's "extension" on the space suit and had the detonation frequency changed. Some of the blast points might not have "gotten the memo.
The point of most self-destruction devices is to make sure nothing survives and no evidence can be leftover. Episode Zero actually shows that Doctor J had found Heero's extension, with the implication he removed the explosive but left there the device to prevent Heero from doing it again.
As far as "sensitive parts" that would be targeted for destruction, only one is missing on that list: Heero detonated the device while standing outside of his cockpit, rather than sitting within it as he would have been while operating it normally. When the cockpit was consumed, he got knocked out of the Gundam instead of killed as he would have been if he had been inside.
Also, the Gundam was repaired using the same parts created by the five scientists plus Howard when they built Tallgeese, back when they were working for the Alliance, which caused the engineers some concern since the parts would no longer available for Tallgeese, and they couldn't be replaced by my possibly faulty recollection.
It's not really clear if this has a significantly detrimental effect on Wing's capabilities, in part because Wing Gundam is only used a handful of times after this in the series, and in part because the Gundam pilots have sufficient piloting ability to God-Mode while piloting Leos.
I think one of the conditions of not blowing up a colony was that they had to get out of their suits and surrender, so Heero got out of his. I doubt it was an oversight by Heero to simply not get back into the cockpit — but maybe he honestly thought he wouldn't survive. Nobody else would have. Or he wanted to catch them off guard by not scrambling back to get inside, instead just pushing the button right then and there. Well, it DID work The self-destruct took out most of the sensitive parts- Y'know, the internal systems Specifically the beam saber system, to name an example.
And considering Gundanium is apparently invincible, that's the best you could really expect from it. The only reason Zechs was able to repair it was because he had the Tallgeese, which the Gundams and all mobile suits were based on. In fact, when repairing the Wing, the engineers say that they can't repair the beam rifle system because it'd take as long to do that as build a completely new mobile suit.
As fr as Heero's concerned It almost seems like the Gundams had different styles of self-detonation devices, given the different explosions produced by Wing and Sandrock. When Heero pushed the button, the explosion was focused inward, to destroy the technology. Sandrock, however, went up with an almost nuclear explosion in terms of power and radius of destruction.
It's likely that Dr. Early on Treize declared that "God is an image created by humans" to himself, after saying to all present how important He is to their cause. Later he says "I'll see you on the other side Milliardo.
His ideals so often mentioned in Endless Waltz would surely have been altered at least slightly following a conversion yet this isn't even hinted at beyond the quote supplied. I've seen the dub only by the way. This troper has known more than a few committed atheists who use the phrase "oh my God" and expletives like "Goddammit!
Those two examples aren't remotely similar. People often use common expressions in conversation without meaning them literally, simply because they're so common. Explain how they're not similar. Alternatively, He could simply mean another plain of existence.
You don't need to believe in a higher power to believe that there is something after death, be it something like heaven or simply the energy and matter that was you moving on to become something else. God has nothing to do with that if you want to play it that way.
Or perhaps he was referring to what people typically think of as God, and not his actual beliefs or hopes; they could easily differ. He might shun the common concept of God, but still believe in a god-like entity. He could have just been being metaphorical or philosophical. I don't think it was intended to be dissected. And like the person above me said, it's a phrase used regardless of spiritual beliefs. I talk of God as if he exists, but I'm of agnostic atheism which for those of you who don't know what that means — it's essentially someone who believes that it is currently impossible to prove or disprove the existence of god but chooses not to have faith that there is a godbecause it's habit — I was raised as Catholic and Baptist, in a culture that strongly encouraged theism, so slang and religious idioms are hard to drop.
I mean if you're going to be picky about religious speak and symbolism in the show, Duo dresses similarly to that of a Catholic preacher, but in honor of the people who cared for him. He never explicitly states he is Catholic and even refers to himself as the God of Death; which regardless of the fact he is not being entirely literal — although he does use it when he's killing people — is blasphemy in accordance to the bible. This troper has always been annoyed at some of the huge, gaping unanswered questions in relation to After Colony world building that could actually be pretty important with regards to characterization.
Heero's apparent superhuman ability- is he genetically engineered, is he some kind of super soldier experiment? We know from Episode Zero that all children born in the colonies around the time the 5 pilots were born were test tube babies, due to the harsh conditions of outer space hence, why Quatre's mother died giving birth to him so it's entirely possible that genetic tampering could have taken place.
Add that to the fact that several of the Gundam engineers appear to have cybernetic implants suggesting advanced medical technology, and you gotta wonder why they would leave out apparently and potentially important information when almost every other universe has gone in-depth with this type of thing with regards to Newtypes, Coordinators, and Innovators Not just Heero, either- Quatre's 'heart of space' is never explained either. This troper also remembers reading somewhere that at least one guidebook has claimed Wufei to be a Newtype, but assumes that to be an error.
How Heero met Odin Lowe when he was a tot is untold as well, which just makes things worse. The reproductive problems in Quatre's family persisted longer than usual as in, some 80 years longerbecause they'd been in space from the very beginning of the colonisation effort. That's what has this troper scratching her head in confusion, because what kind of reproductive abnormalities are we talking about anyway?
And how would they result in the death of his mother when his father was the one from the affected family? Did space radiation turn his sperm radioactive or something?! Oh, and Wufei being a Newtype who could "sense evil" was apparently something from an early draft that didn't make the final version of the show. His stepfather and mother were murdered, and Lowe took him back in What in the world did Quatre mean in the last episode when he said "Heero is the Heart of Outer Space?
Was this some kind of translation error there are a lot of them in this show? I didn't take it literally. The fact Heero was such a unifying force, indirectly and directly depending on what you're taking into account, and an inspiration to so many major players Quatre could have been using it as a metaphor.
Why do all the pilots consider Heero to be a Great Ace Pilot? He is constanly losing his fights. He is constantly having to resort to self destruction. If anything, he was a better foot soldier, because he was good for infiltration and hand to hand combat. Keep in mind that mook suit was piloted by one of the best pilots in the entire series. Quatre pointed out that the G-boys were trained specifically for guerilla attacks. At the begining of the series, he had the double whammy of getting jumped by combat-ready mecha attacking from high ground altitude generally being an andvantage in aerial combat while he's still chucking his atmospheric-entry add-ons.
He goes on to successfully complete several missions; go blow-for-blow against OZ's best pilot and mecha twice, including fighting with a bad arm and unfamiliar mecha Heavyarms ; riding a machine Mercurius most OZ pilots can't handle Also, the suit was not designed for fighting in the atmosphere.
This applied to all of the other suits as well, which all had to be upgraded or rebuilt to fight in space. He got shot down in the Wing Gundam, by a Leo, and apparently Wing's armor is suppose to be immune to just about every attack that dainty suit can use.
Gundam wing capitulo 33 latino dating
He got shot by Duo, and captured, and needed to be saved. Lost to Zechs again, Wufei twice, stupidly fought an army alone when he could of retreated to fight a better battle, killed a ship full of men he was helping, gives away his idenity constatnly.
If anything, Quattre and Duo, and even Trowa should be getting the recognition for being just plain great. He didn't get shot down, but rather it grabbed onto his suit, which was not yet ready for space combat, and prevented him from moving.
Zechs and Wufei are great pilots too, and if you're talking about the battle in Endless Waltz, Heero purposely gave up in that battle because he was sick of fighting and wanted to change Wufei's attitude. Killing the ship full of men was manipulation by Treize, and that could have been any pilot. He beats Zechs when they are on equal grounds piloting Gundams. Have I answered your questions? He didn't really need Duo to come along. I don't think anybody on the show said he was the most amazing pilot.
It might have been implied. Certainly he IS good and characters have admitted as such. Most of their admiration seems to stem from his willpower and determination, not his piloting or combat skills.
Heero pretty much comes out and says Duo is a better pilot in EW. Also, there was a whole discussion in EW about how the Gundams were well respected not because they won battles but because they continued to fight on in losing battles rather than give up their ideals. And they sure did fight a lot of losing battles; heck, they lost the battle in EW. The new manga re-telling of Gundam Wing is called Glory of the Losers. Also, didn't Treize say he wanted to be a loser once? Seems losing is the "in" thing to do in this series and seen as a victory.
It's not so much a "victory" so much as it is something people respect. Imagine it this way. Which person do people cheer for more? A fighter who never has taken a serious blow, and just wins every match? Or the fighter who takes a beating, but adamantly refuses to give up, getting up to fight even when anyone else would have given up?
Why do they called it the "Earth Sphere Alliance" when the Earth is really an uneven ellipsoid? The Earth Sphere Alliance was formed from the unification of all polities in the Earth-Moon system; it is called the Earth Sphere Alliance because it governs the Earth' sphere of influence. Besides, Earth "oblong ellipsoid planet and surrounding orbital space" Alliance doesn't really have that same ring to it.
How the heck can Zechs Marquise possibly be only years-old? Not only is he a preposterously high rank for his age at Lieutenant, but he's also been fighting for so long that he's become a legendary warrior with an entire generation of younger soldiers who see him as a model hero.
It also doesn't really make all that much sense, as he's said to have gone to a military academy with Noin who by the way is roughly the same age and somehow is a fully-fledged pilot instructor when she can only have maybe a year of flight experience, topsbut when did these two join?
When they were thirteen? It gets worse in that somebody developing this show had to purposefully decide these ages, figuring that somehow 19 fits the show's universe better than a more realistic mid-thirties. I've always ignored the "official" ages they're never shown or mentioned in the show itself anyway and gone by Animation Anatomy Aging instead. By that measure Zechs and Noin are ish, Treize is ish, and Relena and the Gundam pilots are roughly their "offical" ages.
It's funny though that with Dorothy Catalonia, people think she's older than Relena and the Gundam pilots when in her debut episode Pagan specifically said that she was Relena's age. How is Lieutenant a preposterously high rank?
