I don't know about that. There's a reason why the aliens are usually the ones who come to earth instead of the other way around. And that's usually because their technology allows for interstellar travel while humans are still stuck on earth or our own solar system. Hence, by definition, they are usually technologically superior to humans.

Of course, I'm not saying it'll be a bad story. Humans tend to like being depicted as the underdogs who defeat the big bad aliens through sheer perseverance or whatever. But I wouldn't call it fresh either.

I would watch that, it may not be the most original idea but I would love to see it be done with Gundam.

Maybe they'll even make a giant green Gundam for that one.

Y'know, now that I really think about it...have we ever had an animated Gundam series that doesn't have a Gundam? I know that the V-Fin is the signature of the series, but it would be a refreshingly odd change of pace to just not have a Gundam.

WOW.. You people are spitting out some spectacularly stupid ideas..
Thank god none of you will ever write anything for Gundam!

Aliens + Gundam = not Gundam. It's Macross, Transformers, n lots of other stuff..

As long as it's made by the company that owns the IP of Gundam, it's branded with the Gundam trademark, and it contains at least one mobile weapon marketed as Gundam, then it is Gundam. The presence of aliens does not automatically change it to another franchise.

This is what I keep saying. The first series could REALLY use a nice over haul.

There might be a backlash to those who like the original the way it was. UC Elitists for example.

Ino that. You can make anything and call it Gundam. But why would you? Gundam has a basic formula that works well, so why would you ask for this kind of dramatic and desperate change?

It works well to those who already know and like it. It's boring to others.

where are you getting this from? based on which information?

Gundam has a very diverse fanbase unlike any other. It's proved itself with Seed and then again with 00... so again, why change it?

To get more.

If it's diverse, why question any more change that they might do? Its all for diversity.

I wouldn't be so quick to ponder about aliens playing a role in this new Gundam series, especially if it's UC related.

I think for a long while, aliens will remain solely in the 00verse.
