3 ‘Cute Aircraft’ suits the female pilot of Gundam’s work. What is the ‘Universal Century Aircraft’ as good as the latest work?

Spread the love

At the end of March 2022, the teaser visual & PV of the new TV animation “Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch of Mercury”, which will start broadcasting in October, will be released. The visuals of the female protagonist and the main character “Gundam Aerial” have been shown, and fans’ expectations are rising.

The main character, Gundam Aerial, has a unique rounded shape and waist, which seems to be the first design in the TV series to be inspired by a female main character.

However, even in the past, Gundam works, many aircraft with designs and colourings suit the female pilots on board. So, this time, I would like to introduce the cute aircraft that appeared in Gundam’s anime work of the Universal Century, which was perfect for female pilots.

“Qubeley (AMX-004)” with a beautiful streamlined pure white body

First of all, “Qubeley” appeared in the TV animations “Mobile Suit Z Gundam” and “Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ”. This is the aircraft on which Axis and Haman Karn, the leader of Neo Zeon, boarded.

The Qubeley, which was developed with the concept of making the mobile armour “Hermes” a compact MS, has somehow “remains” felt throughout the aircraft. Then, using the “funnel” that evolved the bit as the primary weapon, he fought fiercely with Camille Bidan, Quattro Bazina, Judau Ashta and others.

White is the primary body colour, often rounded and streamlined, with four sizeable feather-like shoulder armour that catches the eye. Combined with the purple and pink colours, it was femininity perfect for Haman’s elegant atmosphere.

Mamoru Nagano was in charge of the mechanical design of the Qubeley. If you are a fan, it is a beautiful aircraft filled with the uniqueness of Mr Nagano.

“Beginner Gina (XM-07)” is perfect for a noble lady full of elegance. Next, I would like to introduce the prototype mobile suit “Beginner Gina” that appears in the movie “Mobile Suit Gundam F91”. “Cecily”, a particular machine for Bella Rona, was a machine that suits the young lady of the Rona family.

The composition is similar to Qubeley, and the colouring based on white and purple, which is close to grey, is perfect for the image of a noble lady’s particular machine. The silhouette built by the independently movable thruster “Fin Nozzle” on the back is also an excellent aircraft.

A stylish goggle type camera is used instead of the primary camera like round glasses like Denan Zhong and Denan Gae of Crossbone Vanguard. I thought it was the correct answer.

“Bound Dock (NRX-055)” with a large skirt and unique fox ears
Lastly, I would like to introduce the variable mobile armour “Bound Dock” that appeared in “Mobile Suit Z Gundam”. There may be pros and cons, but personally, it’s one of the aircraft that I felt pretty cute. You may have a strong impression that Jerid Messa was killed in action, but it was the aircraft on which Rosamia Badam, also known as “Rosami”, was on board.

Although the aircraft is derived from “hunting dog = hound dog”, the combination of a sharp head sensor-like part that looks like a fox’s ear rather than a dog and a large skirt on the waist is charming. In addition, the colouring of the Rosamia machine, which is based on red and black, which is close to pink, is unique (the colour of the Gates Capa machine is a little plain), and I felt feminine.

And when the aircraft transforms into a mobile armour form, it becomes even cuter. The appearance of only the head protruding from the skirt is like a horseshoe crab, and the mascot character feeling increases at once.

In addition to this, Allenby Beardsley is on board as a cute aircraft that suits female pilots if it is not limited to works of the Universal Century, and it is nicknamed “Sera * n Gundam” among some fans. “Nobel Gundam” (Mobile Suit Gundam G Gundam), “Strike Rouge” (Mobile Suit Gundam SEED) with Cagalli Yula Athha, “Falcia” (Mobile Suit Gundam AGE) with Yurin L’Ciel on board, etc. Some may have associated it.

I’m looking forward to seeing what activity the female protagonist & Gundam Aerial will show in the latest work, “Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch of Mercury”, which will start broadcasting in October!
