Turn A Gundam?

Has this been licensed? I don't think it has yet I don't see it on the list here at AnimeSuki?

No it hasn't, but I'm sure someone will come here and say something about Bandai promising that all Gundam shows are licensed or whatever...

But it's not listed because no major BT using group's actually doing this... Anime Gundam is but they are slow and their BT's don't really exist (or maybe they do, I don't know). MSG is but they don't use BT and their subs are horrendous.

IMO the Turn A looks great when animated. It does look weird if you just look at the pics though.

Nah, I already have them all as avatars in my site, so it was as simple as typing in the urls... Anyway, it's a cool pose so I guess it doesn't look as weird here (the Mark II seems to look uglier).

No point with the movies. Two of them are just not enough to tell the whole story of Turn A. I regret buying them, as now I need to get the full series just to fully understand the whole story.

I too hated the Turn A Gundam at first, but it really will grow on you. The whole series is animated wonderfully, even better than Gundam Seed at times. It's also nice to see the Bjorn, AKA Zaku in action again

Don't be fooled by the weird Gundam. Turn A is one of the best Gundam series, IMO, and I feel it is unfortunate the people dismiss it just because it doesn't have a normal Gundam. It also nicely collects all Gundams under one umbrella, finally showing some kind of relationship between all the Gundam shows.

I can really apreciate what you said about Turn A. I rarely ever find anyone with anything nice to say about it. I can understand why some people might find it hard to follow especially for someone who is not familiar with UC Gundam (or anyone who's not used to horable Engrish). Its nice to know that despite the bad subing there are some people(other than me) who bothy understand and enjoy it.

a lotta people say that. I saw turn A but wasn't my cuppa tea. I was too use to the 'traditional' gundams. Maybe they shouldn't have used the name gundam. The name gundam reminds me of Bigass guns, modern/future space battles, etc (u get the drift). They should have just called it a totally different series altogether. Then 'link' it to gundam series. That would prob have been more popular.

So mate, if you really wanna enjoy the series, DONT remind yourself it's a gundam. Remind yourself this is 'another mecha series'. THEN after watching it, u call it gundam.

#Anime-Gundam is still subbing it, but yeah, we're slow (can't help it if it's mostly a one-man team). And it's also available through BT. I'm sure if you search either for Turn A Gundam or #Anime-Gundam on the site, you'll be able to find it. Here's the link anyway - http://anime-gundam.edwardk.info/bittorrent/

And yeah, there are also not much seeders (I'm probably the only one AFAIK). I also run an fserve on my irc channel if anyone still remembers what it is and how to use one. And yes, it's slow too... -_-;;

So far we've released till episode 24. 25 and 26 should be out any time in the next 2 weeks.

I haven't seen all the gundams, of those I have seen it would be the newer ones from Gundam Wing onwards.

That said, I enjoyed Turn A the most out of all. I'm not really a mecha/action/shounen fan and more of a drama/romance/slice of life viewer, so it's a no brainer that Turn A would be the series that I enjoyed the most.

Still, I'm a little sad at the ending because

Relentless, did you know your signature is one of my favorite all time quotes from Die Legende Der Sternhelden?

Although in the original novel, the quote is actually "ADVANCE! For the Goddess of Victory is already waving her undies at you!"

See, 'Proceed' is just UN-Bittenish.

Like said there are only two movies. There really should have been three. They don't try to cram everything into two films. They just cut the entire sea arc and launch into space arcs out. That's annoying but I can see why they did it but still annoying. The only major problem with the films I saw is that the pacing for the first half of the first movie is insanely fast. The first 5 to 10 episodes is done in about 5 minutes I think.

I really do hope this gets brought over. I'd glady preorder a copy if they just do that. This happens to be my favorite Gundam series. I also agree the Turn A Gunam looks a LOT better when animated. The whole mustache you get used to fairly quickly I feel.

The second movie is actually a fair bit better, but the compression on the first one is just nutty and makes it barely watchable.

Which is a shame, some of the newly animated scenes are a big improvement. I didn't miss the launching arc because it was probably one of the weakest parts of the series, especially the short arc with the aztecs or whatever they were meant to be.
