*Membership spots not really limited!
You would think they would put two new partners in a simulator to get used to each other, instead of just throwing them together on a mission with no training together.
You would think they would have all the pilots of the jaegers have some planning sessions together to plot strategy. They acted like they didn't even talk to each other.
The Russians were caracatures, reminded me of Drago from Rocky III.
The selection process for a partner. Again, why not see how they interact in a simulator. Instead they use a fight with sticks to appeal to the Japanese audience.
Why do the pairs of creatures always get one English and one Japanese name? Why not a Russian, Chinese, or even a scientific name? Again an obvious appeal to the Japanese audience.
