Oh god, Hilde's become the sister and it's a rewrite of Duo's Episode Zero story. Man.

I assume if the pilots are like... say 40-45... Then Sally is/would have been about 44-51. I'd peg Kathy at 20ish? Normally I'd peg this new 'Duo' (are we going to have to make up nicknames for them like the multiple Syaorans in Tsubasa?) at about 15 normally. Haha, that'd keep consistent with the Wing ages. The kid struck me as being younger for some reason though. Which doesn't even make sense becaue we barely got a description of him. I'm just going crazy.
Ahhh, I figured it would be Mitsuwa... with no car, there's no way I can get out there ;; No public transit to the Mitsuwa. Oh well, maybe I can get a friend to drive me..

I doubt they'll repeat Duo's story XD Though Duo might be lame and do something like that, I doubt Hilde would though.

If they were 15 (the Wingkids, I shall dub them), that would be hilarious. And you know what? I bet that's what they're aiming for.... Though you're right, something about him comes off as younger. That he didn't speak, maybe? Or that Duo spoke for him. if he is younger, and this novel is a branch to a sequel, maybe they would intend for them to be 15 in the sequel. Ahhh, speculation...

On the idea of that "Duo" being just a codename and Duo's looking after the 1xR kid, though, I just suddenly got this mental image of Heero punching the shit out of Duo for growing his kid's hair out into a stupid braid while he was away >B|

akigakuyuu: Of all the characters, I'm most curious about Relena. She's not the only female featured in the OP for nothing. If "Duo" is her kid with Heero, I'm with kitsoru on Heero's reaction to the braid. xD

As for popsicle!Relena, Heero is most definitely in on it if J tech is involved. For all we know, he's frozen with her or guarding over her body. It would be irresponsible to just freeze her then leave her with out any guard just in case someone stumbled upon her. Damn, this reminds me of Sailor Moon. @_@

And hey, President Dorothy Tiberius Catalonia might not be half-bad. Demmit, I really hope Sumisawa tells us what that effing T middle initial is.

Elo: Golden trucks. xD

I think he's fronting. He's worn priest clothes for years so why not integrate the disguise into his identity? And if he is a priest, did he preside over a secret wedding between Heero and Relena ala Romeo and Juliet? I bet he lol'd through the whole ceremony.

Kitsoru: I'm with you on the Princess Aurora theories. I really hope finding out who she is will be a good pay-off and not totally lame.

Where is Dorothy's middle initial revealed to be T.?

Her golden trucks are pretty cool. LOL!

Duo has become a priest and the boy is his son. Book it.

It's right there in Deacon Blues's translation as well as the link one to kaijyuu_m's. Dorothy is identified as Dorothy T. Catalonia.

Need to get my eyes checked. LOL!

Wonder if her middle name has any significance.

Buzz from the Japanese fans c/o kaijyuu_m:

Just did the usual skimming of Japanese fansites:

1. Apparently the ladies of Aqua, English Cherries, and Nejimaki got together to read the latest Gundam Ace (at a pub of all places, LOL), and Suu of English Cherries has written about it on her blog. Not 100% sure but it sounds like the "Relena and an elderly person in conversation" part is from Gundam Evolve 07. (Source: http://bbs2.oebit.jp/suu4444/)

2. kora of the fanfic site "The edge" has written something similar on her blog. Also, she mentions that the manga artist Tokita Koichi tweeted recently that he had been requested permission to use some plot from the "Battlefield of Pacifist" manga. (Source: http://blog.gemini-aa.com/)

Hmm, do we see a pattern forming here?


I'm most excited about AQUA/Kajika Ono. She makes the most amazing Heero/Relena doujinshi:

Also, all the ladies mentioned in #1 are Heero/Relena doujin-ka.

@Kitsoru:

The term used to describe Duo was 初老. In the description 初老の男 means "a man past middle-age". Jim Breen's dictionary also states that しょろう means "age 40". Either way you look at it, he's over 40.

And I find it amusing that Tokita was contacted. He wasn't the one that wrote the scenario for the manga. But that did get me thinking if a line that Dorothy says, "I'd like to find out if General Kushrenada's and Zechs Merquise's plan to bring peace through war can actually work." will be the basis for part of this novel or not...

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.

F*CK YES AQUA ahem >u> <U< Oh man I'm PRAYING she comes out with some new doujin due to this, that would be SO amazing.... It's already impossible enough to find her doujin. =__=

Anyway, I've watched all of Gundam Evolve (I love that episode aaa) and yeah, I had guessed that was where it came from. Since it was animated, I guess they consider it canon. Makes sense. I always loved that conversation...

Hmmm... BoP, huh? I need to get my hands on that, augh Dx I don't really know what happens in it. Interesting that they're trying to get permission to use manga material of all things, though. I guess Sumisawa's trying a little bit of everything..

Ahhh, okay. Thanks for the clarification. It's been a loooong time, I guess.... I wonder if they'll do flashback/forwards to pieces between then and the series? I can only assume so.

Hmm... war beginning again, huh? Sounds like a way to link it in with Turn-A Gundam's 'end of timeline' scenario XD

I wonder what's the chance that this scene is just a flashback? I mean the guy who raised Duo was also "Father Maxwell" right? This was actually the first thing that came to my mind when I read about that line.

It can't be a flashback. The translation reads:


- A voice is heard behind Kathy, Youre just like your mother.

- Appearing was a middle aged man in black priests clothes with a young boy with long hair tied in a braid.

- The middle-aged man who appeared at random was nothing but smiles. Im Father Maxwell. The Father Maxwell who may run and but never tells a lie. And this brat with the unpleasant eyes is my son, Duo.

- The priest brings special attention to Kathy, By the way, I do hope that you brought three files with you. The three preludes are needed to awaken the Aurora Princess.


Kathy hadn't been born yet around AC 190.

Not to mention he used the line "The Father Maxwell who may run and but never tells a lie."

That's Duo's line, hands down. The line he used when he met Professor G, after Father Maxwell had already died.

That was in Episode Zero, so don't worry if you don't remember it.

He did tell Quatre the same thing to Quatre in one of my favorite episodes "The Whereabouts of Happiness".

I just got done re-watching it for the 7th time and I've got several series I've told myself I need to watch but all this GW talk is really making me want to watch GW again.

You know, the cryonics got me thinking about G Gundam and what happened to Dr. Kasshu. Any chance "Princess Aurora" is someone who got dealt the death sentence but the people protested against her execution thus prompting them to have her put in frozen sleep instead? It would fit with the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale after all. xD

Ahh, I totally forgot about that xD

Yeah, I'm the same. Getting through Macross Frontier, watching the end of FMA, trying to get through OTHER Gundam series... Instead I end up rewatching Wing >___>

LOL!

My goal is to finish X, SEED, Destiny and V before the second Unicorne episode comes out. Guess I'll listen to GW's OST when I can isntead.
