Mostly because Gundam UC is a throw back to the classic Tomino Era.

Most of those SeeD kids and OO kids I've seen doesn't dig classic Tomino stuffs from what I've seen.

No need to alienate Seed and 00's ppl XD

I assume most ppl are going for the Robot fighting and ppl should be quite flexible to the story..let it be tragedy or even comedy, as long as it makes sense

From what I've seen they don't like classic stuff because of the "animation"...

But then again, judging from the lack of popularity for Tomino's recent works, his style does take a bit of getting use to.

Regardless, Unicorn does require a bit of knowledge of UC Gundam lore, plus its retro character design (ie lack of bishies) might turn some of the kiddies/girls away.

If there's one thing about UC, it's downright depressing (as expected from Classic Tomino) and featured what could be one of (or even the most) tragic female character of Gundam-verse.

It's even worse when classic Gundam viewer find out her true identity. but I believe they just might have read the novel and find out who she is already. And I don't believe it's too much to say she just might take over Lalah Sune's place in Gundam-verse after UC is done.

Gah, too much spoilers here. We need to do what the boards for the other anime adaptations do and keep spoilers out of anime discussion threads...

It tears me up just thinking about it. Especially since the originals are one of my favorite characters in the gundam universe.

BTW, the spoilers remind me, I guess the fact that Unicorn is being made into an anime at this time probably means that the Zeta movies can officially be disregarded and that ZZ is still canon, if that wasn't already clear before...

I think the fact that Turn A Gundam isn't appreciated or watched by many seems to indicate that even casual Gundam fans have different tastes when it comes to what shows they watch.

Of course, the fact that Unicorn is written by a mainstream writer and not directed by Tomino should mean that it would be easier for people to get into.

With something like this^

but then again most of the causal fans I've debated with said they would watch more UC, iF the animation was not so out dated, Unicorn Gundam animation won't look so old, and nether will the mecha. So they will take a look.

For people I've talked too about it it had more to do with what they saw first. Most I've talked to who have said they like Wing Gundam and Gundam Seed said it was because they grew up with those ones, that they were on tv such as Toonami and such and they had not even known of the previous Gundam shows existances until later. Some of them just don't bother even trying to watch the old series.
