To Live and Die in Space
Mobile Suit Gundam Episode 1
In this episode: the 70s in our universe and in the Universal Century, in belum medium, aesthetics musical and visual, and... what's my age again? (what's my age again?)
The Zeon "Zaku II" mobile suit, and a photo of Japanese soldiers from the Special Naval Landing Force in the gas masks that, we think, inspired the design of the Zaku.
Additional information about The Death of the Author and its place in literary criticism.
And finally the intro song, "Tobe! Gandamu" (for pre-karaoke practice!).
