How does the Turn A Gundam Correct Century work? Spoilers for the show but it's plot centers around the mystery of the Dark History. An era before the current time which in the show's setting is a Victorian era level of tech society with planes & blimps. This Dark History is hinted at & outright said to be essentially the history of at least 4 previous Gundam timelines. From my understanding, each timeline is supposed to be a different universe. So how does this work? Because I can't find a straight answer no matter where I look. Is it: >A: Each Gundam timeline referenced here were actually part of the same universe all along. >B: Each timeline was separate but something converged them into one.
Kamille is just edgy Amuro
>>301 From what I've heard the gundam universes are cyclical, with each of them ending with the Moonlight Butterfly. Which seems unlikely, especially the G Gundam timeline since things like the Devil Gundam would be a pretty good deterrent to any future WMDs. But Turn A is Tomino at one of his more depressed ebbs, so the message that all universes inexorably come toward oblivion, and that nothing Amuro, Heero, or Domon fought for mattered seems like a peak depressed Tomino message.
>>302 He was also an autist

>>303 I don't think that's right at all. That doesn't account for multiple references to different timelines. The original Gundam is outright referenced & shown through most of the show & the Wing Gundam shows up when Corin gets a snap to the Gundam he hates so much.
>>304 That he was

Did someone say TURN A GUNDUMB!?
>>304 >>306 I won't deny Kamille was autistic. He outright says it. But I think all newtypes are some degree of autistic & passionately stupid.

>I think all newtypes are some degree of autistic This is why oldtype pilots are superior.
>>313 Suicide is cowardly though.

Finally finished Turn A Gundam on blu-ray. I can only come to the conclusion, from information directly from the show, that yes at least Wing, X, & G are part of the same universe as the UC. There's sufficient time given for them to take place too since the UC was 10,000 years ago & the Dark History ended only 2,000 years ago. Now how they fit in order in that timeline? That's a whole other question I can't answer.

MS Saga, of all things, actually touches on this in a few books. I have no idea why the game includes Wing content instead of X or Turn A when those are much better matches for its setting of a post-apocalyptic, but recovering, Earth where mobile suits are remnants of the now ruined civilization.

And when going back to find these screenshots, I remember I never actually finished the game and last played it 6 years ago. I recall I stopped playing sometime after Digging Rock and just looked up the rest of the story. Game was fun, but killed by some really egregious flaws >has a system for building MS, but mid-way through you repeatedly get handed new MSes that are better than anything you can build >to build an MS you need a large energy core, but you only ever get enough to build every suit in the game plus a single duplicate so no experimenting for you >you can often build suits before being given them for free, so fuck 100% completion without a guide >your party gets way too big and most of the characters don't feel that distinct due to large ability overlap Is there an infinite large energy core cheat? I might use it and go back to the game. OST is really cool though. http://invidious.snopyta.org/watch?v=liY7JHaGZ78&list=PLFeqBQGOZRrZ9sIOGJg_UDqAH-WShzKFO&index=8
