VIII: Shambling Monstrosity

Undersea, overground, shambling free...

The Shamblo owned much of the latest episode of Gundam Unicorn.

I like good mobile armours, I think because they’re usually bestial, and it does the soul good to see a small humanoid figure (the Gundam) squaring off against something like that. And it’s a salutary reminder that Gundam is at least as much unstable psychics riding monsters as it is hard-bitten soldiers piloting war machines—you will note that the painting stuck in Banagher’s memory is not titled The Lady and the Ordnance QF 17-Pounder.

One response to “VIII: Shambling Monstrosity

  1. … vs. the shambling cyclops!

    The Shamblo tearing apart that aircraft carrier is every bit as good as Evangelion’s aquatic angel. Had the fight stayed naval, it would’ve been disastrous for Torrington, Londo Bell, everyone… except the civilians perhaps.
