Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt - News & Anticipation



Quote:
The Universal Century began with mankind moving its burgeoning population into outer space. The year is UC0079. The cluster of colonies furthest from the Earth, Side 3, proclaim themselves the Principality of Zeon and launch a war of independence against the Earth Federation. Now, it is nearly one year since the war broke out. In the ďThunderbolt sectorĒ, a reef section of space where a large quantity of wreckage from battleships and destroyed space colonies from the war lies, a violent battle plays out as the Earth Federation Forces set their sights on recapturing the Zeon controlled sector.

I like the manga so far. So count me excited for this upcoming adaptation.

And here's an interview with the mangaka in 2014 to accompany this thread :

SPACE THUNDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry, couldn't resist

I'm actually gonna go ahead and guess that this'll be a 3D-CGI series due to how complicated the designs for Gundam Thunderbolt are, unless the dedicate some massive budget and effort into this.

Hmmmm OVA or mini series? Definitely not enough content for a full series atm

This is sorta interesting because we got Gundam The Origin going on atm

Unless its the next project in line? That would still be quite a while though

While this news is interesting, I sorta feel that currently Gundam seems overexposed. With the dropping tv rating, I hope we are not heading towards another Gundam X

Gundam... overexposed?

Gundam is a multi-million dollar franchise that is to Japan as Star Wars is to America. "Overexposure" has never been one of its problems, more like part and parcel of the entire thing.

As Lowe and I were talking about on SB, all hail the rereleases of Thunderbolt kits - existing HGs, new HGs, and MGs.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't overexposure and subsequently Gundam fatigue pretty much put the franchise in hibernation until SEED came along? It's a worrisome trend considering the past few main series (AGE and G-Reco) have not been very successful and IBO's tv rating is less than stellar.

Maybe that's why Bandai/Sunrise is doing another UC series (OYW no less) since the time period has built in fanbase and guaranteed kit sales.

While I don't know the reason as to why there was a two year wait between Turn-A Gundam (1999 - 2000) and Gundam SEED (2002 - 2003), I doubt said gap had anything to do with "overexposure" or "Gundam fatigue". Besides, said 2 year wait isn't even particularly long - Gundam SEED Destiny (2004 - 2005) also had a similar gap before Gundam 00 (2007 - 2008), and yet I don't hear anybody calling that period "putting the franchise in hibernation".

Oh yeah, thanks for the correction. Miss out Turn A

so who else think Thunderbolt's adaptation was somehow either hinted or foreshadowed in Build Fighters Try's ep 4 when one of Fumina's choices for the base unit of her about to be Winning Gundam was Thunderbolt's GM? though her GM Powered Cardigan seems Thunderbolt inspired with those sub arms holding the shields & extra bits attached.

I think that's stretching it. Though yeah, Cardigan's sub-arms look like the ones in Thunderbolt.

The manga is terrific. And for once adults as main characters in Gundam.
Cant wait.

Technically we have had quite a few adult leads in the last few years compared to before

I haven't check the manga but the premise seems cool. Though OYW and Zeon conflict can get tiresome at some point. I wouldn't mind for them to focus on later UC.

I think before Seed Gundam was losing its popularity. X didn't do so hot, though I believe bad time slots was one of the cause, and Turn A didn't do well. Seed did raised the popularity of Gundam again. So while Gundam wasn't dying, it was losing bit of steam.

So apparently we're getting a trailer after the theatrical showing of Gundam the Origin II: Artesia's Sorrow in Japan, which is starting today:
