Well new series, Gundams with FMA-style characters, could be very interesting.
Most importantly, no reused scenes.

This is pretty cool! As long as Morosawadidn't write the script, then it's fine. The character designs is also good; can't say anything bout the resemblence of the characters to other anime as well, most anime these day tends to look the same.

- In (almost) all mecha series, there will be a Kira Yamato clone lookalike (brunette, powerful, usually drive the most powerful mecha)

- In (almost) all anime, there will be a pink haired character, that will become more or least an important character

- In (almost) all mecha series, the evil guy is either best friend, or family members of the hero's girl

Still, can't wait for another news of this. The list of seiyuu perhaps?

I'll believe that when I see it but even if there is I doubt it will be anywhere near as bas as Flashbackemall 2 series.

That is dark purple hair... on my monitor at least. If the show is Saint Seiya then that would certainly be a guy.

So are they still going to do that Seed movie or quietly kill it off?

Its awesome seeing original Kouga Yun character designs in action. I'm a huge fan of her style, so i'm glad to see they're working well for the Gundam franchise --- it helps that she's a huge fan.

But gaah, i need to know who'll be doing the musical score!

In fact I haven't seen this many men in 14 seconds in an anime spot in a long while as well. Although Gundam with a loli heroine would be extremely screwy so it's not surprising to see all male pilots in the trailer.
Wait what? Wasn't the one with purple hair and glasses a girl? If not... wow talk about a trap. Yaoi total confirmed.

^Tell me about it...there's really no point in even making that character with the glasses a boy. It would just decrease the realism of the series.

Nice.

Male characters that look like men. (I think the purple haired character with the glasses is a girl while the other three are clearly guys).
Directed by the director of FMA, a plus I feel.
Turn Aish looking Gundams another plus (Turn A Gundam is my top favorite series so bias in this).
Not being Gundam SEED related......priceless!!!!!!!

But it might be a tomboyish girl. Still, even the main character in Loveless looks like a girl, so you never know.


I love her design though.

Wow you go to sleep and wake up to the fresh newness that's "New Gundam"...


Aaaah (Cracking his typing knuckles)...

Let's begin, again^^...

Haven't read the whole thread; too excited...Seems to me the kid in the red-scarf will be "special-one" but who knows...The characters designs are fine to me as I'm very accepting of how characters of new-worlds or animes look..I had no problem with the general CE designs (only their inconsistencies)...They look better than Code Geass IMO, and I believe the Mecha will too (They look realistically over-powered from first glance)...Hopefully the plot can be on the level of Geass...Love that it takes place in "Our Timeline" so that opens the door for perhaps some more tangible realities and less Space-whale reality...

All I need next preview is to see that quintessential mysterious masked-guy (I pray he is included)...Give me that and you'll see me swinging on street-lights like those white-guys in 1950's musicals^^!!!

As for C.E., despite my harsh criticisms that will always remain, on some level it is a bittersweet day because of the potential that era had, but it's time to deviate and leave it as the average AU it truly turned out to be...Goodbye Kira, I'll always have the Sand-arc and Fllay-powered greatness to remember you by...C.E. closing party at Bar Eden, Japan I'm buying^^ ...Any drink requests??

I'd say don't get your hopes up on the animation. The teaser has all the looks of an intro with the high framerate, even if the designs do look good. Plus, it seems like the trend these days for new anime is to get lazy on the animation quality after the first few episodes. GSD did that, so did Ergo Proxy and I think Code Geass too. I can't remember FMA having poor animation, though

You aren't getting rid of them that easily. They'll be back sooner than you think.

So why do people fight, anyway?
Perhaps the meaning of existence lies within their will to fight.
People feel a sense of accomplishment through battle.
And itís also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

^I actually was underwhelmed by Code Geass' animation in the beginning (I remember being kinda disappointed at first)..For some reason it seemed to just get better and better rather than start off great and then get average..Near the end of the S1 it apexed into visual awesomeness IMO...

Well this thread confirms the back-burner status of C.E. for now...

The movie man, the movie.

You can guarantee that there will be big fanfare for that before and when its released.

But as I said before, the fact that they are interested in starting a newer franchise for the so-called "younger fans" indicate that CE has graduated at least somewhere close to UC levels in terms of demographics, which means that future TV series based on similar settings to the first two series will be unlikely. Though it all depends on Gundam 00 and whether it can overtake or at least duplicate the success of Seed.

Some episodes here and there were quite sub-par, but then again I'm measuring it against 26 episodes sakuga-festas or the insanely well produced Eureka Seven.

E7 had a few clunkers too, especially after the halfway mark on that series. But in general, BONES shows seem to maintain better production quality throughout than Sunrise series. Plus this is a mecha series where quality tends to fluctuate a lot more. So I'm not expecting animation gold for this series. But it should at least be an improvement over GSD, which had writing problems leading to delays in animation.

I was speaking about C.E. as a series and it's longevity as a universe...I'm not that ignorant, I know SEED The Movie will have Moses and Mary lovers over-flowing the temple...

As for the Code Geass debate ya'll were having earlier..I think Code Geass does wonders for this new Gundam and won't hurt at all...I think Code Geass has proven (Perhaps to Bandai aswell) you can have Bishie-looking characters and seemingly superficial character relationships catered to fangirls and "younger-fans", yet at the same time have very dark, logical, and adult based themes that satisfiy intellectuals or those seeking true-grit (With good drama and dialouge aswell)...I have no problem with it competing with or furthering CG's example (obviously with it's own story)...
