Nice twist. It gives you a look into a possible future.

Anyway I still somewhat wish they would drop the blue/white/red colour scheme one of these days. Seriously its not like the series will instantly fail if they do.

It could do with a new feature --- MAYBE A MUSTACHE! <3

Further CE TV series are now unlikely, but not OVAs/movies. Fukuda & Morosawa actually produce relatively good OVAs with none of their shortcomings from TV broadcasts (unlimited production time FTW), and an ongoing OVA series is possible and will certainly extend the longevity of the universe (Cyber Formula's OVA series (plural) extended the life of that universe by 10 years).

Plus OVAs and movies ARE generally targeted at older crowds anyway, all the more perfect for the "now adult" Seed crowd. So CE is not dead yet, at least not for some time, unless there is visible evidence.

I've been wondering that too! I thought I was the only person that thought about this!

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)...



Oh snap! Geass is now SMART!

From C.E.'s inception all that we had heard was it was created to try and become this generations' "UC" with several series developing within the constraints of this new timeline...That's seemingly finished now and it will basically be just another AU with some OVA's...That's vastly different from being the NEW TIMELINE FOR THE NEXT ERA OF GUNDAM...So in that sense the longevity of the universe is quite limited and I highly doubt even in OVA form they'll deviate from the "cash-cow" characters of Kira, Lacus, and company thus not really furthering the scope of the universe...And honestly as I've said IMO several times after GSD, "There's nothing really left to tell..." Ep 50, Final Plus, SPIV, shows you all you need to know ...

Anything in THAT direction is something we can agree on....But Gundam 00 is the new girl next door right now ...

Subjective for sure^^, but in comparison to GSD quite welcomed...

Uh this might just be me, or did anyone else see the first gundam (with the gun in the sky), just lock its V-antenna over its eyes, like a visor?

I mean, at first when its coming down, you don't really see the glowing camera lens (?) until the V-antenna lowers to reveal it, then it glows.

I'm intrigued. So far, it sounds kinda like Wing, possibly more "realistic". These new machines may have Victory style tech (Since Turn A is just too much) right out of the box, the lack of main backpack thrusters only confirms this. They aren't bristling with weapons so reused scenes are almost impossible. The sound effects sounded slightly different than what I remembered from SEED...

Wing, while it has nothing on UC, I still like for some unknown reason... I'm getting nostalgic...

Ok, Did you guys forget what Miyakawa (Sunrise guy) and Kazunori (Bandai's CGO) said in that interview or are you guy's simply ignoring them?

I thought they made it clear that they want to capture a 3rd fanbase (obviously with Gundam 00), And not want to replace CE...They even said they want to introduce more story into CE in the future.

I Mean Come On! DVD sales are like 10 times better then those of Suzumiya Haruhi, The characters have been dominating *whatever* Anime poll for the past four years, The OST's always manage to hit the top 5 in Oricon, ect, ect..

And you guy's think they are just gonna drop everything and completely focus on something new?!?...Com’on! get real!! This is Bandai were talking about

Sentai? More like Kamen Rider- I can't help but remember Tendou while looking at the character with the scarf.

"Walking the path of heaven, the man who will rule everything."

However, this is just a teaser... Shinn did look much more like a professional soldier in the early SEED Destiny teasers than he turned out to be in the series.

I guess I should have been more clear, but I mean in terms of the Gundams design and what looks like to be a team dynamic. From this brief impressions, the designs are kind of too similar right now, where the only difference is the color and the specialty. The blue one is speed and melee, the Green one is massive assault weapons, the black one is beam weapons and possibly MA mode... Where is the pink one? Will there be an "evil" red one that will join the team later? Can they all transform into one giant MS ala voltron?

I am more concerned about Gundam going back into the Wing dilemna issue (Concerning hentai and such) With The character design being done by a yaoi artist, we can pretty kiss any straight H goodbye. And just when Lacus saved the hentai industry someone else wrecked it...

Time for me to return from hiding, I only really post when there is a new Gundam series around

Sounds and looks interesting, though I am a bit suspicious of 'slimmed down' mecha merely allowing for more megagodmod upgrading later on...

Still, I refuse to accept Gundam as a mere toy commercial, previous productions have proved far more and I hope 00 continues the tradition.

In which case guess the 'Celestial Beings' will be renamed 'Good Guys' or something if it appears on Cartoon Network - 'Great Destroyer' my arse. Not to mention the infamous disco guns of course.

LMAO @ all the guys in here admitting to watching "Loveless"...Since I don't watch boy-yaoi the character designs won't remind me of something I don't watch...Based on that teaser I see nothing overtly yaoi about them, but I don't watch yaoi so i may be wrong ...

hey that actually looks pretty cool. The characters feel like they harbour some dark secret, with those stern expressions and fake-ish smile.

The assumed lead boy(girl? haha?) looks as if he's not the nice and perfect kind of person, which is bloody welcome in my books.
