HEEEEYYYYY YOOUUUUUU GUUUUYYYYYYYS!!!

A little less than three more months!

My brother and I are currently using thins down time to rewatching SEED (we both enjoyed it) at the moment. Then I think we'll rewatch 00, G, and than hit up some UC. Probably start with the MSG movies. Oh, and of course rewatching UC up until October 30th.

It's probably the case that they ran the first episode as a Pilot episode so as to gauge fan's reactions, and this wait that is enforced is probably down to the fact that the rest of the series is being animated and then the voices being done, subtitles and the English dub being done before probably being released one every month, that's just my take on it all

Good. Now I have time to watch the first episode :P

I'm sure Bandai will rev up the hype train leading up to the release of the second episode. That'll give us plenty of time to pop the blu-rays back in and re-acquaint ourselves with the series thus far.

That is, if you really don't think you'll have it on your mind from now 'till then! I'm sure I'll be flying around in the Unicorn every time Bandai releases a new Gundam VS game. I just started playing the latest one that came out back in December.

Kinda reminds be of the Macross Zero releases. There was a fair wait between each of those if I remember correctly.

Half a year every episode isn't a long wait considering Sunrise is finally back to making a Universal Century series rather than other timelines. The latest UC series was like what, Victory Gundam?

Of course, that's not counting MS IGLOO and the Zeta remastered movies.

You're all missing the point: At this releasing pace, it will take three years to complete the six episode series.

Meaning if they continu like this it might take that long, not that it'll actualy take that long.
As for the other Talk, yes from the looks of it they might drag things out, to milk the cow and all including that peaple dont download it so fast, or watch it online.

As for the 3rd part, we all know how long it takes for a game to be finished, and those are done by experienced peaple in the gaming industry. the fact is that these peaple dont know how to create a serie, let alone with graphics this high, let alone at a fast pace.

But we will see how long it might take, in the meantime another Gundam might be released, so i wouldnt worry about 3-6 months between every episode.

As for my point of view on this?? well they propably made the 1st Episode this far from the rest to give yall a sneak peek and to show ya what they made..i'd bet about 60% being sure that Episode 2-6 will be released at a faster pace.

Many Greetings from the Brutal Legend Riggnarock :D


What the fucking fuck are you talking about? Your post post is riddled with incoherent uninformed babble. It will take 3 years, not because thy wanna milk it but because they are trying to do they exact opposite of that, they are trying to avoid all the bullshit and politics of Japanese TV, Also the same day the episodes premiere in theaters it goes on PSN for download and a month later it goes on Blu ray release.

And whats this talk about games and them not knowing how to make a "serie" It's Sunrise, the be making SERIES for nigh on 30+ years now.
