More likely, the OO Gundam will get either a new, more powerful drive (something that'd probably be a once in a lifetime thing, as CB had only 5 drives as well 15 years ago), uses the Thrones' imitation drive or they transfer the third generation suits' drives to the fourth generation suits (OO Gundam?) somehow.

They'll probably work the O Gundam and the GN Drive into the anime story at some point even if its a cameo. The O Gundam is too important a unit to Setsuna not to appear again in the anime. It'll probably be similar to what they did for the Astray tie-ins with SEED, where it never directly mentions or shows any of the 00F characters.

I meant that maybe the O Gundam was being remade into the OO, not the O's GN Drive!

Yeah, the O Gundam most likely appear. Its GN Drive... Hard to say, for reasons stated above.

As for the OO Gundam being remade from the O Gundam, I hope not. O Gundam is way too Okawara, so another rehashed design is something we don't need.

There is a Gundam 00 though.

In another words, "speculation". New word for ya.

The problem is a lot of people go on about it like it's fact. I've seen it so many times, yet they're just guessing that there will be a 00 Gundam. I'm against the idea since it goes out of synch with CB's naming convention for Gundams. 0 Gundam was the first before they went with their angel/god naming standard. I don't see them going back to something else.

Which basically spreads like wildfire and thus leads to inaccurate information. As the director stated before, the title was an accident, and it probably won't ever lead to anything. Speculation on something no one has any information on (in terms of the manga other than what was released in English) is somewhat moot. It's basically looking at the pictures attempting to guess at what it means. -_-;

Since when?

Seiji Mizushima said it began as a temporary title that ended up becoming permanent, and there is meaning in it which will be revealed later in the show.

A: It started as a temporary title, but it ended up being the official title. Originally I wanted to have a cool name, but we all forgot about it. Besides the obvious reason of starting from zero, there are other reasons. Right now it is a secret, but it will become a keyword as the story progresses.

Multiple fractions within CB having different standards/namers having different preferences/Gundams made by other non-CB fractions/Setsuna naming his new Gundam after his savior notwithstanding.

And who said O Gundam is called that because it was the "first"? (why not "Gundam No. 1" instead? Why not rename it when they got new "standards"?) Its more speculation. You just fell into the same trap you warned against.

Given what Japanese blogs have stated over the course of the show, I have reason to believe otherwise.

At any rate, we released 00V for those interested.

Mizushima NEVER said that 00 has no meaning. He just said that the title was initially a placeholder, but that 00 did have several significant meanings that would be more apparent as the show progresses.

I don't see why anyone would put more stock into what blogs have to say rather that what Mizushima says in his interviews. He's given a ton of them, and I've read most of them. :P

Yet we know by now not to really trust interviews with Directors for any anime show. Fukuda didn't come through in some of his, so why would he? And yes I mentioned Fukuda, so don't go all apeshit Destiny hating on me it won't work.

I was flipping through my copy of Feb's Dengenki today and wondered why Chall looked so familiar. Then it dawned on me. She resembles Ichijou from Onegai Teacher.

I checked it up on ANN and yup, it's the guy who did the Onegai series' concept character art.

Errr what? I mean, what are you talking about. What did Fukuda say that was a lie or a fabrication? SEED Destiny sucked, but I don't get what this has to do with his interviews? Has there been a single printed interview with Fukuda during SEED or SEED-D's airings that turned out to be false information or outright lies? Seriously.

"00" is most likely the name of a new Gundam we've yet to see. Maybe it's the model number(GN/Y-000?) or a code name for it, or something. It was the case with many of the past Gundam titles; for example, Gundam Wing(Wing Gundam), G Gundam(God Gundam), Gundam X, and SEED Destiny if you would.

Unlikely to be a GNY model number since the GNY series has only been the second gen Gundams, and they don't have proper GN drives. Only 5 GN Drives exist and all the suits that have them have GN model numbers. Thrones are GNW. Looks like only suits that have real GN drives have GN model numbers.

Directors don't have to tell the truth with interviews. Interviews are often off the record and tend to touch on things that are not necessarily going to happen in the show. If I remember correctly, he stated that there would be lots of romance in the series, which in turn hasn't happened and won't happen.
