So, who will pilot the successor to the Zeydra? 30-something Zeheart if he miraculously survives through Asem's inevitable rage? Or his brother? Perhaps a female Veigan?

As cool as a heavily dragon-influenced mobile suit is... the way the torso cannon is set up makes it look like it has a giant erection. That shoots particle beams.

Yeah, you can't unsee it now either.

It's Age System reaction upon seeing the green dragons. The increased armor perhaps to protect against impalement from the "GN Longinus" armed Vegan MS.

Honestly dude, I can't see it. No really, I can't.

I like the new gun design as well although the old one was more menacing. The new one is more streamlined though and there's a nice mix of "heavy" and "normal" there. The old one was essentially the AGE System pulling out all the stops for a powerful handheld weapon.

You know what else I can't unsee? That your name is Rising Dragon and you just pointed this out. Now I feel dirty just reading your name ...

When it comes on screen, you'll see it.

I like it as well, even though I was a huge fan of the heavy duty early leaked design of the AGE-3, I think that having it look less like it was fighting fortresses and more like a traditional MS makes it look much better.

Also, I was also looking back on the thread and found the spoilers for episode 23

Yeah, this is one Gundam tradition I would've been more than happy for them to skip entirely. I only hope that this doesn't drag on for too long ...

At the very least, despite all the favoritism shown towards him, Asem had been the most pleasant Gundam lead so far, being an all around nice kid who would help anyone even an enemy when in trouble out of the good in him, never standing aside for what he thinks is wrong, jumping to the call despite hating fighting (but he's not a LOLanimepacifist) and just being all around a good guy. Plus all the crap he seems to have been thorough in episode 21 makes me want to give him a bit of slack so hopefully this wont be so bad ...

I think the last 3/4 series didn't have the main character running away.

Gundam Unicorn - Some running away from responsibility.
Gundam 00 - I am Gundam! No running.
Gundam SEED and Destiny - Partial emoing and running.
G-Gundam - Too manly, no one was allowed to run.
Gundam Wing - Hero would have rather blown himself up than run away, Qatra blew up some (ok, quite a lot) people rather than run.

Not much of a trend recently... and its not like Asem is going to run away for the more usual cliche: "I hate war!" But because he's just never going to get a break in this game, everything is stacked against him. It'd be pretty normal to snap in such a situation.

Call it emo if you want, but I wouldn't call it running since they do it in their own time and they never purposely try to run away.

But yeah, the point is that running away isn't really a trend in Gundam, especially with AU series.

Actually... Gundam 00 had Saji in season 2, and G-Gundam had Rain.

Neither of them is a main character.

Saji is debatable, but Rain most certainly is a main character.

Well, I guess if you meant it the same way of saying that Athrun is a main character of SEED.

So everything is acceptable so long as it's not a main character?

But riddhe isn't a main, ah who am I kidding, he totally is and yes there is more in ep 4.
Only saving grace is the MS fights.

No, I merely commented on DarkLordOfkichiku's post about the main characters of Gundam series.

In fact, I did not even make any judgment call on whether or not it is acceptable.
