Was hoping it would be sooner but, man, I am really looking forward to this since I really liked the Original series.

I know how you feel, my friend.

Patience is a virtue. Who knows what's in store for us next year after the end of Gundam Unicorn OVA this year?

Hope this is better than 0079 (although this isn't a difficult task).

How accessible should this be to someone who has not seen any UC?

How is it even possible to say something like this and be considered a Gundam fan or even interested in the franchise? It's a more fleshed out version of that story in manga form for what it's worth but if you didn't like the story in it's initial incarnation good luck getting into this one lol

Should be very accessible since it ought to be starting even before the beginning of the original. From what I understand this actually starts some time before the original series and features the lead up to and the One Year War. Not going to be much more of a bridge or starting point into UC than this most likely.

If I were you though I'd sooner be asking if you really want to deal with the incredibly ragey Gundam fanbase in and around the internet. Though maybe it would help you find out why I'm so largely anti-fandom in general when it comes to my comments on other forums. You can scarcely find a more dismissive, arbitrary and nigh impossible to please fanbase these days I kid you not. I have mixed feelings regarding people losing their shit over this entry and following the typical Gundam Cycle as always.

For the record Gundam Cycle is basically like this:

-New Gundam series comes out
-People bitch about it not being from the continuity they want and how it's going to suck based off of limited criteria and information
-Show comes out, people claim it might be the worst entry ever in the franchise after a month or so of episodes and proceed to suck any possible enjoyment to be had out of it for themselves and others
-Show continues to air and enters it's second half as people find more and more to complain about and views to the preceding Gundam series in the cycle start to soften.
-Show ends, people officially proclaim it the absolute worst entry in the franchise, prior entry either becomes an instant classic or "no longer the worst"
-Rinse repeat when next series is announced

I'm curious to know how many episodes it has. Or I wonder how many people would apprecite the anime today. People's tastes change or become diversified as time goes by. The latest examples were Lupin Mine Fujiko toiu Onna and Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199. Both Lupin and Yamato were very popular in 70s, but they didn't draw so much attention when their new series were aired/released last year.

It retells events of first Gundam series so you don't need to know anything about UC.

So the only Gundam series I've ever seen gets a remake? Figures -.-
I'd have preferred a remake for Zeta, but I guess I'll watch it. The Yamato remake is great too so I have high hopes for this.

They already did that, it was a movie trilogy called A New Translation that featured significant changes to the story as the movies went on to the point where I'd consider it a remake or alternate telling.

Sounds good. At most I'll miss some references existing fans will get, but that's not the end of the world. Other than AGE I've liked all the Gundam I've seen so I assume this should work for me too.

At least you have a better chance of enjoying it than most knowing your open mindedness though I strongly and I mean seriously strongly suggest avoiding online discussion of it as much as possible if you don't want the experience ruined by default since as I mentioned the Gundam fanbase is kind of ragey and loves to complain and find things to nitpick and flame. Also in all honesty you're probably much better off not being a longterm fan of the franchise since you care zero baggage in and have nothing to compare it to in the form of the original series or the movie trilogy.

LET THE REVIVAL OF GUNDAM TV RESTORE WHAT WAS RUINED BY AGE!

I hope the animation quality is top notch like Unicorn. xP
