Gundam SEED Astray MSV Commercials

watched the two 5-minutes Gundam SEED Astray MSV Commercials, I have to say that I like Blue Frame more than Red Frame. Also Blue Frame Second L and Sword Calamity look simply soooo cool

The pilots for the experimental CGUE in Red Frame and high mobility GINN in Blue Frame are supposed to be Shiho and Mihail (??), too bad we don't see their faces in the commercials...

Spoiler for screens:

I doubt they are the pilots since the pilots of those suits suck in the two shorts (those people are supposed to be aces after all).

But yeah, very nice. I like how well the personalities of the characters in the manga translated into this.

well, Miguel was also an ace but he got so easily killed by Kira who pilotted an MS for the first time... I guess aces mean nothing when going up against main protagonists

I can't believe that little girl at the bridge is only 6 years old

Damn! Where did you guys see this? Is it shown after part 2 of the 2nd SEED special edition? I always thought Blue Frame 2nd looked cool, and it looks like I haven't been proven wrong. I guess Gold Frame Amatu & the Regenerate Gundam aren't in these. Too bad, cuz they look cool too. Why is it that the best looking Mobile Suits get left out of the actual series!!??

As far as I know the only place (other than on the internet) to see this is in hobby stores in Japan. However since someone ripped it and put it on various places (p2p, BT, etc) it is now accessible...

And Lowe is no Kira... He fights well against regular grunts but is generally no match for the more powerful foes (he leaves those for Gai to fight). It's not like the regular Astray Red Frame is that powerful either. Equipment-wise it's not that much better than a regular M1 Astray.

well, Lowe and Red Frame reminds me of the Mobile Fighter G Gundam... with all those martials arts, swordsmanship and energy balls and his gerbera straight katana is really into the realm of surreality

Surely Lowe is no professional soldier (Kira is no pro neither), but he has much more survival experiences and street smarts than Kira... that showed in how he defeated that CGUE, he used the landscape to his advantage and use the backpack as decoy... Kira likes to fight fair and square, while Lowe just use whatever at his hands... also 8 is a very smart AI

I guess Shiho just got caught off guard by Lowe's unorthodoxical way of fighting... And Mihail was unlucky to fall into the merc's well-planned trap...(anyway I think Shiho was the only pilot for that experimental CGUE at that time?)

Another noob question: What are GS MSV and GS Astray? I thought they were mangas based on the GS universe, following other characters or alternative versions to the original anime.
But now it is a series or what? I don't understand. Could someone explain it (or tell me where to find out about it)?
If nodoby can, then at least tell me if MSV and Astray are important to understand the GS universe and specially the upcoming GS Destiny or they're just side-stories without much relevance.

so far there's no word on Astray as a full anime series. MSV means Mobile Suits Variations, which are all kinds of different MS models. so in MSV you see all kinds of different MS models ever developed that's not seen in the series, it's mostly there for selling models... Astray is some stories happened in the GS universe that surely helps to the understanding of some of the events in SEED anime series (like how Kira got to the Teacher's house after Aegis' self-destruction, and what that yellow ship appeared in ep47)

BTW, some "engrish" shots

Thanks for the explanation.
I watched the series again two days ago (I have to be ready for Destiny ), but I don't remember any yellow ship at all.

BTW I downloaded an MSV Commercial that showed MS models, Shinsen-Subs released it a while ago. If any of you liked the background song, it's Zips from the last album of T.M. Revolution: Seventh Heaven. The name of the song didn't appear since the video was clipped and I looked for it like crazy (Just by hearing you can tell it's from T.M. Revolution).

While the video quality ain't all that good, I think overall the animation in this is a little better than SEED's. Lowe's fight scene with those CGUE's & the DEEP ARMS CGUE had to have been IMO one of the best fight scenes I've seen in Gundam SEED period. And the way he use's the Gerbera Straight... Damn! Man, they could've atleast made this into an OVA series. The manga's pretty good too, and I can't wait for the 2nd volume. Now all that's left is the blue frame promo...

It might be becuase these are only six minutes long whilst SEED is... a lot more hours long.

But the Deep Arms looks great. I want one.

It was also nice to see some GuAIZ slaughter some Strike Daggers.
