Gundam - Q & A

This thread is for those of you with questions about the Gundam anime or manga. There are many questions that don't need a whole thread to discuss them. A simple practical answer straight from the anime or manga without any speculation can solve these connundrums. If someone has such a question about Gundam which can be solved by answering with facts from an official source, then please ask that question here.

Please don't post in this thread unless you are asking a question or answering one. Please remember that it only takes 1 person to answer a question. And don't speculate! You can only reply with cold, hard, merciliessly unforgivable facts. If you have to speculate, then please just tell the querrant that no answer is known, but here are some facts that might help him make up his own mind.



Make sure you use spoiler tags if your question is about the anime, manga, or any non-anime source. Untagged spoilers are risking a ban. There are two ways to create clearly marked spoiler tags, as shown in the following:

The easy way: By simply clicking on this icon which can be found in the Quick Reply or Reply to Thread template. This is how I create spoiler tags.
or
The macho way: By using those uber vB codes as shown in the following...

Spoiler Tag Example
[spoiler=title, i.e. your reason for the spoiler tag]Don't forget to use a title for the spoiler![/spoiler]
...becomes...
Spoiler for title:

both. for now...

it's 人類革新連盟 (unlike the Union, AEU and Celestial being, which are written more or less in English), so there are multiple English translations. But there may eventually be some piece of English writing referencing the group (like the Aeolia Schenberg 'page' in episode 2), so there may be an official English equivalent of some sort in time.

The official translation, which groups seem to ignore, is Human Reform League.

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And itís also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

It'd be useful for future reference.

If you are looking for an -official- terminology in English, unfortunately, after searching through the official site (and general JPN sites for that matter...), none could be found. So nothing is official for 人革連~ for now

yeah, I had looked through the official site and saw nothing. figured there might have been something on the sunrise site, recent merchandise, or in the show that I missed somehow though.

anyway, Deacon, if you do have some sort of source on that, I would like to see it. (its good to have one term for everyone to use) otherwise, gonna have to stick with there is no official English name till one arises.

The official source is this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEalUJoA6dM

That's the announcement PV video released a month ago. I thought the names were cleared up then.

The official names of the fraction are Union of Solar Energy and Free Nations, Human Reform League, and Advanced European Union.

Is there manga for 00?

I have done a quick search and didn't see anything about manga for gundam 00. Is there such thing? If so, where can I find?

Also, does anyone know what happened to animeyume?

You betcha. All of them look fairly interesting too. It's kind of similar to how Sunrise built up all those extra side story entries around Code Geass with the Picture Drama and Mangas. One is a prequel, one's a straight up adaptation, and one is running concurrent with the events of the show.

I hope Bandai/Sunrise keeps up with the practice. It's kind of similar to how a lot of popular American TV thrillers are adding material on the side to enhance viewer interest, if not quite as direct an approach. They did it with Xenoglossia too by having Haruka Amami maintain a blog that ran concurrent to the show. Anyways I digress, to date I don't think any announcements have been made about scanlating them, but I hope to be one of the first to learn of any such project.

except for the fact the geass manga didn't really have anything to do with the main series, all of them were alternate timelines of various sorts.

though that seems to be fairly the same idea in most if not all these 00 manga, so no real change to your point.

That may be the case with Geass, but not for 00. The Gundam 00 mangas will be set in 00's past (00P), present (00P) and future (00V), so in terms of any occurences that'll be presented in the manga will be considered canon along with the events of the series. They are considered "sidestories" afterall, and not "adaptations" , which the CG manga (Nightmare of Nunally and Suzaku of the Counterattack) are.
