Yeah I probably got them all wrong anyway. I don't know how will they write this 3 gen thing...

From various source like ANN:


This is the 1st generation pilot, Furitto Asuno, father of Asemu


This is the 2nd generation pilot, Asemu Asuno, father of Kio


The is the 3rd generation pilot, Kio Asuno


Other characters include Emily, Furitto's friend since he was 7. Guruudekku is a Commander in the Earth Federation Forces and the captain of the battleship Diva. Mireesu is a Lieutenant (junior grade) in the Federation Forces aboard the Diva.

The Gundam AGE has a learning AI, can be 'augmented' as the Gundam AGE-1 Titus for more power, or as the Gundam AGE-1 Sparrow for more speed.

So the return of the male captain is official now it would seem in this Gurrudeku. Hard to believe that the last male captain of a hero battleship in a Gundam TV series was Jamil Neate in Gundam X all the way back in 1996. 15 years ago.....

Of course it could be argued that Guin Sard Lineford was the captain of the Will Gem and was a hero for most of Turn A so that would only puts it back at over 12 years ago in 1999 with Murrue, Talia, Sumeragi and Kati following since then.

So this show is Climax UC on a grander scale Razz

For those wondering, I've dug up two domains for the site:

www.gundam-age.com
www.gundam-age.net

They'll probably be online around the Toy Show.

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 it’s also a fact that the ones actually fighting are never perceived as being tainted.

To be honest, I feel the same way in regards to just about every Gundam series. Turn A for example, had a very peculiar first impression, but it turned out to be... rather nice.

But I like surprises. Especially when they are pleasant surprises...

The Gundam designs look good though, I'll admit that. I'm interested in this "unknown enemy" above all.

Does that mean we don't know what the enemies are yet? Or are they literally unknown in the series?

Are we looking at aliens outside of 00?

That would be wonderful. But if it means less MS-to-MS combat like in the 00 movie, I wouldn't quite like it.

I don't think Sunrise would bring aliens to another Gundam series, this unknown enemy has to be something else.

Kaiju?

The character designs are certainly different from what I expected. I'm looking forward to the first trailer.

The character designs, IMO are the weakest point of the series to me thus far. Everything else seems neat, except for the characters.

Yeah, I share the same sentiments. Hopefully it would not be an issue later on though.

If the characters end up being likable, I'll over look the designs.

I'm willing to overlook the character designs for now. First impressions are always deceptive in some way.

Yeah, but that's written by Tomino... This is by Akihiro Hino.

Here we go, first round of information kiddies (I'll post more later):

Here’s the latest information from the next Gundam series from the CoroCoro magazine release:

PLOT
Piloting a Gundam to fight to defend the Earth! Suffering an attack from the sudden appearance of the enemy “UE”, Frite completes the “Gundam” together with technological developers of the Federation Forces. With the power to become strong while fighting, the unknown enemy “UE” is beaten back one by one. In order to protect mankind, the Gundam sallies forth!
CHARACTERS
Frite (or Gullit) Asuno – Main character who developed the Mobile Suit Gundam AGE-1 equipped with the AGE SYSTEM.
Asem Asuno - The second main character and son of Frite. Inherits the Gundam and fights.
Kio Asuno - The third main character and grandchild of Frite. Inherits the Gundam passed down from generation to generation.
Emily - Friend of Frite since the age of seven.
Groudeck – Earth Federation Forces Commander. Captain of the battleship Diva.
Millais – Earth Federation Forces Lieutenant Junior Grade. Comm chief of the battleship Diva.
Gafuran – A mysterious enemy like an alien who strikes at mankind.
MECHANICS

The Gundam AGE-1 is the main characters unit. Although it’s a machine, surprisingly, the Gundam grows with the “AGE SYSTEM”. It’s form seems to change with growth from experience in battle!
GUNDAM AGE-1 NORMAL
GUNDAM AGE-1 SPARROW (Speed Type) – A cool blue unit is the highlight. The enemy is torn to shreds with the cutting edge of the sharp Sigl Blade.
GUNDAM AVE-1 TITUS (Power Type) - Though it doesn’t appear to carry weapons, with it’s unbelievable destructive power it crushes the enemy.
** Please not that the romanized names for the characters presented here are my take on them and may differ from other variations. They will suffice until official English names are available.
