First time I heard Rau characterized that way. lol. He's not racist, he's an equal opportunist, he hates everyone equally.

There is no contradiction. But hey, if you don't want to defend your beliefs, fine by me.

In a weird kind of way, that makes him "better" than Zala and Azrael...

I don't want anyone to die, but that doesn't mean the story should be changed so that no one dies.

A coordinator is someone who has gone through a specific gene enhancement. Rau is a clone of someone who thinks he's already a perfect being, whose only change is in his rate of growth. That is not enough to classify him as a coordinator.

and yes it is a misfire because of the justices expolsion
No, the Justice's explosion only destroyed the GENESIS after it has been fired by Patrick Zala with the destruction of the base, preventing the "beam" to reflect back to Earth. The Providence was caught in that initial fire.

fine he is just a clone, though that really doesn't explain how he was able to pilot a zaft mobile suit since Mu's father(who he is cloned from) was a natural and i haven't seen any information that says otherwise but okay

then doesn't that mean athrun caused the genesis to misfire since it didn't complete the whole firing process

Al La Flaga was pretty exceptional... And the oldest known "Newtype." Rau can pilot a mobile suit because he is just that badass...

Also, I don't think he is arguing that Genesis didn't misfire per se so much as the Providence was destroyed BEFORE Genesis misfired...

Being a Natural doesn't prevent you from having genes that helps you to do certain things that a Coordinator can do. The only difference is that you get them naturally. Of course, training and practice and motivation also help.

I'm specifically talking about what hits the Providence.

Your words:

The misfire actually comes later in the process. What hits the Providence was not a misfire.

How I interpreted it was Genesis started to fire (and the initial blast took out Rau) but Justice blew inside it seconds later and destroys its internals, causing the beam to sputter out before it could go anywhere.

As far as Rau's piloting skills some Naturals can pilot coordinator OS's though it's very very rare, and even the ace pilots of the Mobius Zero corps couldn't do it. One of the MSV pilots though is specifically said to be able to do so.

However they've always been evasive about Rau and Rey's genetic types and even the guidebooks list them as question marks. So they could possibly maybe be coordinators too. They never outright confirm one way or the other.

not surprising i don't think i've seen one of those poles where they weren't on it, this only strengthens the rumor that the hd remasters were successful and we might finally see the movie that was planned for it because of it, granted these were just rumors i found and i have seen nothing official yet on it

Considering they've placed several times on some charts, I don't think the remasters had any effect at all one way or the other.

As for a sequel, I'll be glad if it ever happened, but I'm not expecting it to happen at this point.

Gundam Sees Destiny did get first place in the "Anime for streaming" poll...

I would say that is about as successful as anyone could have hoped for...

Oh sure, but I was only talking about the character polls. I don't think the remaster had any effect on Kira and Lacus's popularity in terms of charting in the polls. I'm not saying the remasters didn't do any good elsewhere.

Destiny's 10th year is coming up in a few months, so there might be something planned to be announced on that day.

Maybe, although I believe that month is when Reconguista and the second season of Build Fighters will start, so I think they will just focus on those two and the upcoming Origin for the foreseeable future.

I sure we don't know their release date yet, except that it will be in the fall. Origin is coming out in 2015. A sequel is most unlikely, but a movie can still happen. I'm sure all they need to do is to do the animation and voice acting since from last I heard, the script was done, but was put on hiatus till now.

It's been a while since there was a comment here so I wouldn't know if it's better to add it to my previous post, or make this a new post, but resulting in a double post. Anyways, remember how Gundam.info took down Destiny, and 00. Well, it seems they are adding them back up on 7/1 with the addition of a SD Gundam series(not sure if that was taken down like Destiny and 00). Not sure how accurate my understanding of it is though...

They've said the series on there will be on a rotation. Z and ZZ were also up for a while and 00 will probably be back too sometime

I don't remember them taking SEED off and that was on the website earlier than 00 and SEED Destiny. I believe Zeta and ZZ were initially an April-only (or some other month earlier this year) release, so it's good if they're bringing them back, hopefully with English subtitles for ZZ this time.

I noticed that too that SEED was never taken down. At this point, the probably won't be adding Z or ZZ. This time, Destiny, 00, and SD are only up for a limited amount of time.
