Newtype's "official" publication date is 10th, that means more news!
Probably the biggest news this time is the name of two MS behind Turn-A.
One on the right is called "Flat" (I'm not kidding). This is the MS used
to send Rolan & co. to earth. This one is transformable, a la Epyon or
Hambrabi (meaning, the leg flipps up to the back), which allows it
re-entry. If you see carefully, you may see this MS doesn't have a torso,
The other one is called "Walking Dome" (WoDome as it is commonly refered
to). This is the primary MS of Diana Counter, the main force of Moon
Race. The pipes beside the head is actually missile launchers. The very
interesting thing about this MS is covered in a material called
"Nanoskin". Yup, that's right, this one is using nano technology. This
MS is used primarily for Operation "The First Return".
There are few other items as well...
* The reason why Rolan & co. was sent to earth in advance is NOT to
investigate, but to see if Moon Race can adapt to earth (man, they used
kids to find this out!? That's pretty cruel)
* "Turn-A" is referred as "Machine Doll" or "White Doll" from "Militia",
and "Mustash" or "White Mustash" from "Diana Counter".
* Age of characters are:
Diana Sorrel, Gwen III Reinford: 19
Messhe Kun (Socie's friend who joins Militia. He/she will pilot a MS as
Rolan and Kiel: 17
Socie (she will be a pilot too, actually): 15
* Gwen is curious about Rolan, and calls him "Rola" (which is
indistinguishable in Japanese with "Laura")
* Mr. and Mrs. Heim will be KIA during the first invasion of Moon Race
Well, that should wrap it up...
