DO NOT WANT. I'm so done giving him the benefit of the doubt. Next thing you know, that part about Princess Aurora having "gone bad" was Heero killing Relena. It's mentioned that Duo has no respect at all for Dorothy and calls her by first name saying Operation Mythos wouldn't have been necessary if Relena had been in power. Urgh...

I'm sorta happy that Duo speaks so highly of Relena though. He says "...if Relena were at the helm, there wouldn't even be any Operation Mythos." I dunno but I'm clinging to hope that she's alive because Duo doesn't speak of her as being dead. I mean, he would have mentioned "if Relena hadn't died" or something if she was six feet under, right?

Maybe the reason Heero 'went bad' is that something happened to Relena? Like someone killed her or did something horrible? I don't know...=_='

I'm sort of thinking something along those lines, though... I have an even worse feeling that they're gonna pull some kind of 'he killed her' stunt.

Anyone else thinking Treize's backstory is suspiciously like Gojyo's from Saiyuki..?

I am digging father maxwell, I love the whole duo becoming a priest thing. Only he can make becoming a priest seem so cool.

I would guess he will be having a mentoring role with his son. I wonder if he trained him by having sparring session where they both used scythes.

I'll keep reading this but only as a non-canon trainwreck written by someone on crack. I mean he can't even do simple math:

How the hell am I supposed to take this novel seriously with errors like that?

Treize's mother scares me, and why would they name Heero the Aurora Princess? Gah why does this feel like the book was written by a fan girl

I think some of the fangirls would be inclined to take that as an insult to their writing skillz. xD

Wow.

That's a terrible error from Samizawa. You're already walking a fine line attempting to conjure up and inject new facts into the character back-stories of an anime that ended a while ago. You can't afford to make simple mistakes like that and be taken seriously.

Again, I won't judge the novel until I've read all of it but so far, it isn't look like the AC expansion I was hoping for.

I'm really hoping the Endless Waltz manga turns out well.

Before anyone goes off on a tangent about anti-author this and that, keep in mind that things change from magazine publication time to actual volume release. There is a chance this will be altered for the volume release (I'm guessing in March or April of next year, possibly).

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.

Yea O_O Even I couldn't make that mistake even though I tend to forget even my b'day!
And totally agree with your second para T_T I was hoping for something different...seems like Sumizawa is trying way to hard. I will just wait till the novel ends, to comment seriously.

About that; it seems that the manga may be just a retelling of EW, possibly from the POV of Treize(?) or the "OZzies", or so the person who translated the 1st chapter is guessing.

That would certainly explain the lack of info released and lack of author named. You don't need an author to a story that's already been written, just the artist....

Disappointing, really. :/

um..so theres going to be a remake of the endless waltz manga? i dont see what the point of that is besides the difference in art unless whoever is doing it decides to change the storyline a bit or add new subplot

I'm not disappointed. I've been hoping we'd see a "GW/EW retelling" in the mold of 08th MS Team for a while now.

The Barton Foundation are the perfect faction to do one with in my opinion. I've always found it odd they hung back in the shadows during the events of GW considering the real Trowa was killed, Heavyarms was stolen and Operation Meteor's plans changed.
