the fact that they had 20 characters to know after 2 episodes is prove of that...

You mean like MSG did?

Not just MSG and 00. About almost every main gundam series tend to do the same thing. They can't just introduce 5 in a series that is suppose to tell about the lives of all major characters, and not just the main one.

I just hope sunrise will try to put more substance and emphasize on quality rather than reiterating old gundam cliches in CG graphics. They have the potential. I believe Igloo OVAs were done right. It is just my wishful thinking though, but I would like the new series to be an anime adaptation of Char's deleted affair.

Is Sunrise capable of making something more fabulous than 00? I mean after all those rainbows and flowers and pretty boys, I had a hard time washing the gay off me...

bwahaha! exactly.. 00 made me want to puke on somebody. and the plot was horrible... the fact that they had 20 characters to know after 2 episodes is prove of that... i couldnt even stomache but a handful of eps. introducing that many characters that early is never good. i used to like gundam stuff but i think sunrise rode this money train a bit to long. ill give it a try probably but if i see the same mistakes like they made with 00 im quitting gundam forever lol

Probably no UC with Unicorn still running.

I'm guessing it will be one of those original things like seed and 00 again.


Yessir, what this man said. Probably a 50-odd episode AU series. We're due for one.

Awesome news. I'm hoping for a new AU Gundam series. I liked the original Seed(screw Destiny) and Gundam 00. Hopefully this new one will look good.

yea having main female lead gundam pilot protagonist tv series is still one thing to ask for give wonder what type she be from a kira yamato version, amuro version, lacus version now gundam pilot, or yet like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hUXQzQVoUM (yea now that idea for real action female gundam pilot).

really if went with female lead yet wonder who to voice her like a female with gundam experience or female yet to voice gundam like ayako, mamiko, mai nakahara, etc (give i also if get dub please let Chantal Strand voice the female lead in it).

overall female lead so really one of top list to do give other is the gundam tv version of whole DECADE & gokaiger yea who want the biggest crossover ever from GS era, uc, wing, & that 00 all in same series.

I disagree. I think we haven't had enough of UC. I hate waiting six month for the next episode and they are just half way through it.

On the other hand, I would love a regular 24 episode anime like gundam 00. That was good stuff!

Make it one season only Sunrise, so you can't mess up with it in the future...

hmm ideas for it

1.return of gundam seed series era besides there still movie they still yet to give us.

2.maybe new seed series like a prequel series in years before start of seed series to give more to get what happen in the past.

3.seed series spinoff like next generation (yea focus new generation characters with some of originals back but now older & more experience)


These suggestions would be a no-no for most people here. The Seed series went downhill since Destiny and it would probably be just another war between Coodinator and Natrual (Unless it's more like Stargazer)

However;

4.finally we get a main lead female protagonist gundam pilot tv series 50eps version besides we seen male side so many times & let a woman take the lead.


That's a good point. We need a female lead or at least a female character who pilots one of the most powerful units. They have only done this with Christina.

Excuse me? Show me these people who say the series went down from Destiny? Gundam Seed was a great Landmark and a reboot of the series would be greatly accepted.

is it gonna be a new continuity or part of the others? either way, definitely looking forward to this.

I'll say after the horrorable ending of Gundam 00 the moive, we were due for a proper gundam ending.


This.
I'm one of those people who didn't like 00 movie.
Some alien attack the earth then everyone somehow "be able to understand each other" and a beautiful flower appeared in the space... Last, Setsuna as Silver Surfer??
