Every Gundam is a prequel to Turn A.

Space elevators though, reminds me of some other series.


Orguss or Tekkaman Blade?
I'm guessing he meant Gundam 00.

From the PV, the world looks much more advanced than that of Gundam 00 (though it does give me the same feeling at the end of Awakening of the Trailblazer).
Could it possibly be a prequel to Turn A?

How would mecha be dead? Valvrave just ended, Buddy Complex is currently running, and Captain Earth is next season.
I belive it was 2012 in particular that had next to no mecha.

'13 had a few more, and now we've got a torrent of them.


2012 was pretty bad, only Gundam Unicorn and EVA 3.0 were good imo.

I need more Gundam in my life so this is good.

I'm going to operate under the assumption that Reconquista is a series until we hear confirmation otherwise. Either directly or hearing from Bandai what their plans for a fall Gundam series would be.

G no Recougista being a movie is disappointing but I'll still watch it, my god what do I have to sacrifice or do to get a decent full length Gundam TV series that isn't for kids.

Then you might want to know that according to Tomino "Reconguista is not for the UC fans but for children”.
after doing some digging and talking with a fansubber on /m/ Tomino actually said its geared towards adults about adults in a nuclear world.

Mar 21, 2014 7:38 PM by RX-782

I don't think it was said anywhere that Reconguista was just a movie

so have all the previous Gundam he's created


Let's hope so i was getting a Gundam AGE feeling there lol. Not sure why it could be the art for the characters. Origin indeed caught my interest :)

Gundam G no Recoguista

not sure about how i feel about this one yet but will still watch it.

Gundam the Origin I: Aoi Hitomi no Casval

my body is ready for this one just only wish that they had made a tv serie instead of doing it like unicorn and make us wait years after each episodes. well they did say that they have plans to continue animation of the rest of the arc which is a good thing.


Need confirmation on that. During the press conference all they said was Origin is to be a 4 part OVA starting with Char and Sayla's backstory. They never said it was 4 parts of Casval's arc.

In fact "Gundam the Origin I: Aoi Hitomi no Casval" really makes it seem there's only gonna be 4 in total, why would it be called "Origin I: Casval" if there were to be 4 of them of Casval?
