F91 & Crossbone involve Tomino.. And I just don't see Tomino returning to Gundam anytime soon. (or ever)

Funny people should mention Gundam F91 because I recently saw it again and it actually holds up better than my first viewing. I think it's aged really well and the 1080p remaster looks absolutely stunning. I'm tempted to say perhaps even the best Gundam has ever looked (that early 90's standard of movie animation) and if you take the plot as is, an uprising and resolution where the victory at the end is a pyrrhic one it doesn't come across as anything I would really describe as bad. It's very obvious it was meant to be longer and there was enough story with some filler episodes in there to probably make a full series, but for what it is and how it was cut down it's a great Gundam flick that's about the length of a 6 episode OVA.

It's just a shame I can't really say the same for the Crossbone Gundam manga, which picks it up but just never feels like it has the same gravitas as the Cosmo Babylonia arc of U.C.

I recently read the Ghost Crossbone manga and I think the story is pretty decent (so far). But it’s a bit light-hearted for a UC series and some elements do feel like a Super Robot (like a “hat-wearing” MS that looks like Kamen Rider Skull )

Well, when you consider the overall series (and the Victory Gundam side-story manga) has Grey Stokes...

Spoiler for spoiler:


...in it, I guess it's not too surprising. Then again, Victory had someone as young as Uso and that was more dark than even Zeta Gundam.

While I do agree with the original Crossbone manga, I actually think Steel 7 to be decent enough to make up for this (more serious theme and the ending). And I thought it was a pretty good closure for the whole Jupiter saga. Sadly, I think they are trying to milk Crossbone too much with the Ghost. I thought they had already found a good place to end with Steel 7.

I wouldn't call Ghost milking, it's actually very well done and is just another step in the story of
Spoiler:
After all, Crossbone was his story.

Spoiler:


Victory also needed some more leading up and explanations for it which Ghost seems ti be providing already from the get go.

Trust me, they're milking that series.

And that isn't Tobia's daughter.

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 it’s also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

Sometime last year I watched the MSG 0079 movies on Youtube - I remember an official Bandai channel uploaded them, but I can't find them now. Any idea which channel has them, or if it's been removed?

What a shame. Looks like I'll have to watch it somewhere else. Thanks for the info!

Well, I don't know about you, but I prefer getting nothing than getting Gundam: Revenge of the Fallen (Colony) .

Also, one of the major appeals of Gundam franchise is the story. Scrap that and you'll have a movie worse than Bayformers.

well certainly it will have more story than transformer due nature of original medium. . beside, to me. reason why i watch Gundam is because mecha action :3

thought i wonder how they will do it. the only way i can think is to make something like 08TH MS team

If it's UC-era Gundam, I fully expect story and character development to play just as much, if not more of a role than just the MS action.

If it's related to an AU-series (which is what a lot of US fans started with; with Wing on Toonami), not so much.

Eh, Gundam stories tend to be formulaic and non-nonsensical. Definitely not a core element. The core of the franchise is mecha in a war/military setting, along with some pseudo-sci-fi gibberish. Everything else is basically dressing.

On that note if they do make a live-action Hollywood movie, its to market the franchise to a mainstream/international audiences, and the easiest way to do that is to go the route of Transformers - something straight forward, not trying to tread any new grounds with the story or stray too far from its roots, action-oriented to appeal to lowest denominator, etc. Its definitely a shot in the arm that the franchise needs in terms of expanding the audience, so I definitely see them going that way.
