^ The above has region restriction I believe. Those living in Asia would not be able to watch the episode in Youtube for example.
I'm from Asia and i'm able to watch it just fine.
It was barred at the place where I am staying now though.

So far it's not bad, liked seeing the old models get modern animation.

I'll give it a go, but it'll probably be crap, just like Angelic Layer was.

inB4 Wing fans gets all angry and bothered and not getting that the Gyan has a advantage in close range combat
also the having a superior MS doesnt always mean a 100% victory

Can't wait to watch it, I think all the different gunplas is a great idea and they could make a lot out of it..

And I still don't get why many is "disliking" or looking down on it because it looks "childish".. <-- ironically that's pretty childish too <_<

Sunrise sucks nowadays.


Sunrise is doing pretty well, it's just your mentality that sucks.

another gundam for childs ._.


Seriously all these "Gundam for childs" crap some people are saying, just give it a chance will you? You guys are just giving Gundam fans a bad name. It's gonna way better than "Moefied Super Robots" that is coming out next winter. That's my thoughts anyway.
