Would anyone mind sending me link or help me out?

Thanks!
....Have you actually read any of this thread...? The answers are all here..

I don't know if you're fully informed, but there's a novel, Frozen Teardrop (which is the brunt of the new materials) and then a series retelling manga, Glory of the Defeated. There aren't any translations available (widely) for the novel in English yet, since the person who had been translating locked up. Deacon on here is doing the scanlations for the manga. Sorry, but whatever's on the first page is all there is.

I wasn't trying to sound stupid but yes I have been reading most of the thread and I knew about Frozen Teardrop, however I didn't know about the second one. I've been following the links but they are all either in Japanese or they say "access denied".

As Kit said, someone did translations of the chapters but took them down again. So the only chapter that is currently translated and accessible to everyone is the one done by Deacon, which is the prologue. Sorry, but we can only give you a summary of what's happened so far. Which, considering how Sumizawa writes, you'd best take with a grain of salt. That man loves to lay false trails.

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 its also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

Awesome Thanks! (Of course, actual materials translations should take precedence, but... XD)

Highly doubt it. And Unicorn isn't a movie, it's an OVA.

Both volumes of this are sold out on Amazon Japan so people are buying it. It may be adapted or the sales may make the writer speed up into the actual story.

Then I guess everything we can do now is sit, wait and hope for the best, eh?

Sold out, huh? Now that's interesting.. I wonder if it's because they didn't print many and more were bought than expected, or if it's a common thing with the first printings and they'll just do a second one?

Either way, it's good news for us fans cuz more interest shown = more stuff for us. Has any other Gundam novel sold out like that before?

EDIT: Apparently one of the SEED novels got an English release. Maybe there's hope for an official English release for this! I also wonder how many of the tankobon sales were from outside Japan?

Here's the new Frozen Teardrop chapter!


This chapter is a little shorter than the others, probably because of the drama CD we got this month... there's lots of little extra pages of things though, including a gag comic with Duo & Heero and their seiyuus!

Grown-up Treize drawn is Asagi's style. ._. That's new. The one on the tankoubon wasn't as detailed.

Also, for a second there, I thought they were holding hands. @_@

Sorry to go off-topic, but how did the Wing crew rank on the most recent Gundam Ace polls?

It's apparently "temporarily unavailable". I wonder why...

Thanks for the new chapter, peacecraft!
So now we've seen how Catherine, Zechs and Hilde look like older. Interesting. There are two things that bug me though. First of all, is Hilde dead or alive? In chapter 1 we were led to believe that Duo Jr. is Duo's kid, making his mother presumably Hilde. But since it's been revealed that they aren't blood related I can't help but think that Duo may have been referring to the kid's biological mother. I wouldn't be surprised if Sumizawa pulls that one, really.
The other thing is, why is Hilde a nun? Talk about random character development. She was an ex-soldier who owned a scrap yard. Why turn her into a complete Sister Helen Expy to fit Duo Jr.'s past? As far as I know Trowa Phobos wasn't raised by mercenaries and a one-eyed captain either. Seriously. Poor thing always gets the short end. >_>

Also lol at Wing in a bikini.

EDIT: I'm sorry if my constant bitching annoys people. I should probably just stop reading about the novel altogether because I honestly think it's bad. But since it has 'Sumizawa' plastered on it and wikis all over the net incorporate its information, I can't just ignore it. *sigh* I guess I can just enjoy the pictures.
