Kuroda: So we want the producer of the next Gundam series to bring Gundam back to the hands of children. I'm confident that we got Gundam back to the male fans by Gundam 00, but unsure about the kid fans.


New G Gundam....? xD
THIS, PLEASE!


It's been 13 years, Sunrise. I think it's time you delivered what you promised.

00 is ****ing awesome to me, probably the 1st or 2nd best. Don't know why people diss it, but eh critics what can ya do about em? I wish they would have and adult storyline, but also incredibly amazing fight scenes, well that's what I would want anyways.

Although I can also see how 00 could have drawed in the female audience.

you'd think that a series about giant robots trying to destroy each other and fighting would be targeted towards a male audience, but i guess not was the case with 00, weird
the only way to stop a gamer from playing is either: beat them, or wait until they get bored (though 2% percent suffer seizures

A Clean, unlimited energy source with anti-gravitational and psychic abilities is far more "adult" concept than "Its LOLNUCLEAR thus its powaful and unlimited" of LOLSEED, not to mention that it answers the "why that huge humanoid bulk of metal can own so much" question better. :)

Actually it seems to me to be exactly the kind of thing that would come out of the imagination of some sci-fi nerd kid of our time, fed with too much "protect the Earth" ads.

I'm surprised that Gundam 00 attracted mostly female audience.
They're probably their to hear Setsuna's voice and Meisters :]

Or that Marina made the men go watch other animations >_>

Gundam for Kids/teens, sounds pretty much like so. Seems like Macross went into that direction too?

*Goes back to watch Macross Frontier and Macross Zero....*

Japan, viewers was adult men.

F2, adult women 35-49 years old.

00 was a total fail with the kids

Gundam was never a real robot show. They shouldn't try to make it one, either. But yeah, I guess the GN Drive thing is a better excuse than Zeta Gundam's LOL SOULS OF DEAD PEOPLE AS ENERGY.


LOL. Honest question. Is this revisionist history at work? Gundam created the Real Robot genre. Technically the UC series made by Tomino should be the guideline for anyone doing Real Robot, which is actually a genre that has more to do with how the robot itself is used and the tropes used to tell the story than it does with just exactly how realistic the mecha is.

There actually haven't been all that many Super Robot series to be released this decade. Godannar, Aquarion, possibly Gravion...

At best, there's a scale for Real Robot where 1 is the most realistic and 10's not really realistic at all and Gundam's somewhere around an 8. (10 would be Geass.)

Like anime but also have an equal passion for comic books? Join my new group! Please?

ye i'm 19 still in the group marked as a teen and get the whole idea very well and i want to see more much more animes like this one but ... there are too many animes with childish stuff etc.. which are made more like to waste ur free time .. this is serious anime here and there are very few animes like these~ which i can call masterpieces that made me really really excited .. so i just cant imagine how could they get the idea to turn such a great story into some ordinary anime..
and i'm sure that statistics are wrong :D the main characters are all cool males so there are alot of fangirls i know it in japan it may have been like that % during the air time but afterwards and in global the pic is different :)
such animes deserve to be rewatched once or even more times so i'm going to do it soon~~~~

UC has always been adult oriented where as AU is defiantly catered to the rabid shonen fanboy. UC is more about politics, techno babble and racism. while AU is Flashy pretty gundams, Retarded power levels and plot armor, ambiguous male leads and just general DUHHHHHH GUNDAM MAKE STUFF GO BOOM!
It doesn't think, it doesn't feel, it doesn't laugh or cry..... All it does from dusk till dawn is make the soldiers die.

While 00 (Season 1 anyway just started Season 2) is definitely more on the political side of things like Gundam Wing before it I wouldn't call it mature. Something like Ergo Proxy or Bebop is more adult oriented. This show is aimed at a audience that have at least a decent interest in intro politics and philosophy it's not as grim and adult as the producers are making it sound.

For starters the character designs reek of typical otaku crap. And there was some plot elements that just wouldn't work in a script meant to cater to a crowd expecting something a bit more realisitc.

So THAT'S what they call it in the AU. Plot armor. Back in my day when it was UC stuff, it was called a NewType.

Also...its a mecha series. When are they NOT about "giant robot make stuff go BOOM!"?

Also, LOL Gundam Wing = political. 00 S2 must've been Geass R2 level stupid, 'cause when I bailed it could best be described as, "Wing, without being stupid".

Really? I didn't realize adult audiences wanted a story filled with pseudo-real world politics and a throwaway cast of characters whose only draw is their supposed "sex appeal" that quickly devolves from having at least a semi-decent amount of moral ambiguity to yet another good vs. evil show with some piss poor excuses for antagonists and tackles almost none of the issues about war it brings up in a fashion even bordering satisfactory.

Seriously, I expected a lot better from the guy who directed Dai Guard...


agreed. I didn't even watch season 2, but season one was just...not that great IMO. And I am a girl.

Sorry gundam 00, but "pretty men shooting each other" isn't enough to entertain me for more than 3 or 4 episodes. By episode 5 or so I need an interesting plot to go along with it, and gundam 00 just didn't deliver that, sadly. It was like "look! an angst-ridden princess! some students! some bridge bunnies! a beach day! a pretty rich lady! a mysterious old man! have we covered every trend yet?? yes?? oh, right, moral ambiguity, can't forget that...well we'll just give one of them a split personality! that should satisfy them!"

agh....

With all those fanservice, so I thought g00 is for women. tieria and his gay gundam (ndaleeh), the hermaphrodite innovators, gundam obsessed bushido graham...

At least characters were MALE this time, instead of SEEDFAIL where you could question anyone's sex any moment...(gay miniskirts *shiver*)

wooo~ Dreamland T_T I really should watch SEED! Though I hated kira at first sight. I will give SEED a chance and endure seeing him. Athrun is really very pretty, I am now really very tempted.

Sorry gundam 00, but "pretty men shooting each other" isn't enough to entertain me for more than 3 or 4 episodes. By episode 5 or so I

yay~ I love watching pretty men. damn If I were to watch obviously I prefer good looking people. I was sooo happy while I was watching. The producers sure knows what yaoi fangirls love. and I love TRAPS. Good job sunrise! ♥

oh tieria... you gey meister. You made g00 an entertaining eyefeast. TuT
