Hmm, wow they're covering both seasons. I kind of was already expecting this after seeing what happened with Code Geass.

Bandai knew that the Cartoon Network broadcast of Seed was a failure when its timeslot got changed, and when no American broadcaster even picked up Destiny.

Seeing as FUNimation has the TSUBASA series covered (seasons 1 & 2).
The reasoning for why Bandai Entertainment has both seasons of Gundam 00 is a little different: they are a subsidiary of Bandai Japan just like Sunrise is, and they're the natural outlet for all released Gundam works (save for experimenting with Bandai Visual USA). There's literally no reason for them to not have both seasons unless, for some utterly bizarre reason, Bandai didn't want to release season 2 in North America.

Not quite. DVD has a maximum resolution of 480p, while Blu-Ray can go all the way to 1080p.

To be more specific. Most DVD's may be in the 16:9 widescreen formatting, but that doesnt mean the actual pixel resolution of the video is HD. Standard DVD resolution is typically 848x480p which is in a 16:9 form factor. Actual High Definition video that comes on Blu Ray discs or HD broadcast is either 1280x720p or 1920x1080p

seeing as the protagonist of 00 is a former middle eastern terrorist, I really doubt it'll go over well in the states. brace for macekre.

Bah, its all good, he specifically reveals himself an atheist a number of times throughout the show... oh wait...

You really have to admire Gundam 00 for its gutsy originality, I mean when was the last time a show came by featuring an Islamic terrorist turned peacekeeper/atheist as the main star?

I really don't see Gundam 00 coming to the states. Unless they do some major editing.

And as far as I remembered it, someone brought into attention that they had the American flag wrong - the 50 stars were in the right corner instead of left corner (during the panama attack episode)

Can I speculate on possible voice actors?

Setsuna F. Seiei: Brad Swaile
Allelujah Haptism: Johnny Young Bosch(?)
Lockon Stratos: Yuri Lowenthal
Graham Aker: Steven Jay Blum

Of course, the above cast is only going to work well if you have a very, very good voice director. Kris Zimmerman from MGS, G Gundam's voice directors, and Cowboy Bebop's voice directors are good examples.

You do realize Code Geass is pretty much unedited, right?

I agree with RisArk. And besides, have you bothered checking the Gundam DVDs? Like The 08th MS Team, MS Gundam SEED etc... You'll notice that they're unedited. And they're not like their network showing counterparts.

MS Gundam 00 will definitely have these unedits, when they eventually hit the DVDs. So whether or not you don't see it happening. It will happen.

No offense, but I just wanna ask... Is it really that offensive to the US to have an Islamic terrorist-turned-peacekeeper as a protagonist in the series?

I'm a Muslim myself and... I just wanna know...

Depending on your background, some people do find it offensive regardless of the changes. Most people also think that everyone who is Muslim is zomg terrorist as well, but that's a political discussion for another day. There shouldn't be any problems with this series here stateside.

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.

You do know that Star Wars Episode 3 (yes the dvd) could go up to 1080i?

Eh, Full Metal Panic!?
Its release was delayed a time or two though, wasn't it?

@Stratosphere: Kind of. Full Metal Panic!'s release was delayed because of its proximity to 9-11, when we weren't the most accepting of Islam and the middle east in general.

I don't really worry about the content of Gundam 00 if it comes over. All the problems come from the annoying interest groups

The problem for me is show can get any good time. Not posted in the later hours like Gundam seed on Cartoon Network or Sci fi Channel. If it is on another network, I might as well go to another country or watch on the internet.

I don't think terrorism will be much of an issue. It's not like it's going to air at prime time on network TV. It will probably be broadcast largely uncut in a late night time slot on Adult Swim, and anything on Adult Swim is bound to offend somebody. They'll probably follow it with a show about a talking butt... I guess they could try an early evening time slot on Cartoon Network like they did for Wing back in 2000, but that's highly unlikely because they're currently airing Scooby Doo around that time.

Toonami has a even worse lineup than scifi, at least they show Macross which is better than redudant shows of boring Ben1-, Goosebumps, and other boring things.
