I went through and screen captured frame by frame to break down the D.Va short “Shooting Star” so you wouldn’t have too.
Give it a read through if you choose. Let me know in the comments below what your favorite moment was or if I missed something.
Opening Scene, We see Nano Cola D.Va on a building. Possible MEKA HQ.
We see D.Va on another building. I believe the pink round holo is a pachimari? In the distance we see the MEKA outpost, giving an idea of how far they are from land.
D.Va winning her WORLD CHAMPION gamer status (pre-MEKA days)
According to Michael Chu, Dae-Hyun is a mechanic, specifically assigned to D.Va. Also D.Va endorsed RAMAN. XD
D.Va’s MEKA squadron takes on the giant sea omnic Ghost. No, none of the MEKA’s have tentacles.
The BUSAN MEKA Squadron (Casino, D.Mon, D.Va, King, Overlord) From Michael Chu each pilot got their nickname from a popular anime D.Va: Tokki! Casino: La Princesse Sereine D.mon: Beast King: 신기전 (Singijeon) Overlord: Mastermind -Also notice D.Mon has horns on her headset like D.Va has bunny ears. Michael Chu confirmed that D.Mon was on the same esports team as D.Va before joining MEKA Corp.
We see D.Mon helping Overlord out of his wrecked Meka. From Michael Chu: Their commanding officer is Captain Myung (you can hear her voice over the comms on the MEKA Base point of the Busan map).
