Wait, so if I understand Origin's description on wikipedia, this will basically be an almost 1:1 remake of the original Mobile Suit Gundam 0079? Doesn't that mean if this does quite well, we can reasonably assume there will be remakes of Zeta, and (possibly) Double Zeta?


ZZ remakes, I doubt it, and we don't need another Zeta Remake, what we need is the entire Crossbone Gundam series, Blue Destiny (easy since it could fit in 13 episodes), and maybe the Advance of Z: Flag of the Titans adapted to anime.

Zeta or ZZ don't have anything of semblance to what Origin is to 0079, so most likely not. Kitazume's Z Define is still ongoing, but I wouldn't count on that even if it weren't.


Would you still be able to watch Zeta after Origin and it will make sense (Assuming they follow the source material for Origin very well)?

Going to be amazing.

Put it on April the 7th, and I'll be happier! It was Gundam's birthday!

Hope this is better than 0079

Hmm, this will be interesting to watch. I'm glad I got to watch the original Mobile Suit Gundam and learn and watch about the Universal Century lore. Starting from Gundam Wing and then discovering and watching the other series got me hooked on Gundam no matter how it is shown, with the exception of anything SD Gundam related.

Looking forward to seeing this series in 2014!

Hmm, a prequel to the series...
I have yet to watch the rest first.

Dang 2014...this will be a long wait, but it'll be worth it.

Hopefully this will be my gateway to the Gundam series.

Guessing they're waiting until 2014 so that they can wrap up Gundam Unicorn and get Seed Destiny HD's TV airing out of the way.

At least this time, it'll get a complete run unlike the original 0079's rushing during the TV airing due to it getting canceled.


Then again the last 13 or so episodes were probably the best part of 0079. 0079 was so slow up until that point if anything it getting canceled helped it pick up the pace.

Hope it won't suck as much as the original. Cause it put me to sleep almost every episode due to the snail pace of the plot and of how slow and boring the battles were. Well at least I'll have better art and character designs to fap to this time around if that is the case. When it comes to UC I vastly prefer 0080, Victory, and Zeta over 0079.


I personally was hoping this would be an OVA and they would stick to new universes and characters for the TV shows cause I really loved AGE despite its flaws with its rushed plot. I want to see character/mecha designs that are more similar to 00s on the next new Gundam project.

Kinda off topic, but do you think the Gundam SEED movie will finally be after the SEED Destiny HD remake?

Fuck why do i have to wait for another year. I really thought it was coming out sometimes this year. Shit...

YES! GREATEST NEWS EVER!

Once this show airs, I'll watch it. Just because (and maybe because I haven't watched a single Gundam show yet).
