I don't even know what to say about that preview because I'm still having trouble that something in 2015 could look and sound like that. Then again Gundam UC animation team.


The animation looks fucking incredible.

My god, Sunrise wasn't playing around with this one.

It's not the UC entry I wanted but better than nothing to expand on it. Though Thunderbolt never struck me as really interesting. There should one or two better options. Maybe even fix some older entries like F51.

Which entries do you have in mind?

TB is alternate UC, doesn't really expand on the universe.
Ecole Du Ciel? But I think the serialization is on hiatus? canceled?

C'mon, Sunrise! That's too short! Good staff and cast, though.

So each ep will be 1 blu ray disk? :O
Cause that is one major ripoff if it is :(

Atleast it's short.
They have been doing too much gundam lately, it might bite them in the ass if they over produce too many series.

Ion Fleming, a certain secret agent author ..?

Correction.

It`s F91 not F51.

Four episodes? ...Ok

Nov 20, 2015 6:04 AM by yuliyana29

What "because"? I don't get it.

The bosses are not Sunrise but Bandai. They don't give a single fuck about cartoons obivously. Sunrise are just executioners and Tomino probably prays five times a day for the death of Gundam because Bandai ruins every his new idea with it. A fresh example is Greco which was not planned as Gundam. But big guys need big yens and Gundam is a certain tool for printing them.
Because "Gundam" is a genre now and the anime changes completely when you call it "Gundam".
