One thing that has always bothered me with OZ is that everyone seems to be a Lieutenant, and I'd like to know if this is true or not. I've found a chart on the Japanese Wikipedia website, but there's no citation, so I'm skeptical of its reliability. Not to mention, I'm at the mercy of Google Translate. C'est la vie.

Much thanks in advance!
The Specials are the Alliance's elite mobile suit corps.

I don't think a rank table has ever been released but the military ranks don't seem to be any different from a standard organization. You have generals like Septem and Ventei, colonels like Tsubarov and Sedici, and lieutenants like Zechs and Trant, among others.

Question: What do you guys think the chances are of Bandai doing blu-ray releases of Char's Counterattack, F91, 00 and Unicorn?

In regards to the ranks:

Code:
OZ/Specials Rank      Court Rank   Example   Alliance Rank

Tokusa (high class)   Duke         Treize    Major General
Tokusa (first class)  Marquis      --        Brigadier General
Tokusa (second class) Count        Lady Une  Colonel
Quasi-Tokusa          Viscount     --        Lieutenant Colonel
Tokui (high class)    Baron        Zechs     Major
Tokui (first class)   Baronet      Lucrezia  --
Tokui (second class)  Knight       Otto      Captain
Tokushi               Sir          --        1st Lieutenant
The OZ ranks themselves don't really have a translation (the Japanese that is).

I'm not sure if I should ask this here are or in the SEED thread but it a Q that will hopefully get an A.

I'm looking for the best or top 2 Gundam Seed Destiny Art books and would like to see if some one could hep me out a bit because I looked around and found their are quite a few of them out there.

Thanks in advance.

00 and Unicorn do have blu-ray releases in Japan. Don't know about the 00 movie here in the US. As for the others I don't know I don't really care to be honest since I own them already.

My questions

Can older Gundam titles like ZZ, Turn A, Turn X etc... still be licsensed for an R1 release since Bandai USA is gone? Also can AGE be picked up for a DVD release? Cause I doubt this series will profit much dubbed since it bombed in Japan so it is quite likely that Sentai could pick it up for a subbed DVD release in the future. Bandai did say something about being sub-licensers in an interview.

Other question I have. After this weeks episode of AGE I was just wondering how many known yanderes (both male and female;preferably male) are in this franchise?

I was wondering if they were any media that covered the events that transpired between the Gundam ZZ anime and Char's Counterattack movie ? Like what were Char and Amuro doing during and after Gundam ZZ ?

The manga Char's Deleted Affair: Potrait of a Young Comet details what Char did after Zeta and up until CCA.

Outside of Hayato mentioning him fighting the Neo Zeon in space in ZZ, I don't know of any media that references or shows Amuro during that time. Someone else might.

It's only up until Zeta Gundam.

I faintly remember that Char's subordinates, or the man himself were involved in some scheme to cultivate anti-government sentiments against the Federation in some colony. Something about infiltrating a colony company and turning it into a front for their illicit activities. Around UC0080, I think.

Yeah, I have that one--I meant the image it originally appeared in; looked to be a magazine scan.

Does anyone know what the GundamEXA manga is about? I figured it was some universe warping going on.

Last time I read about it, yes, that's what it was. A new character and new Gundam traveling to other universes within the Gundam series.

I realized the reason why Kio sucks as of this moment is because unlike flit and asemu, he doesn't have a badass ally named woolf!

At this time, no. Probably never will be.

Question

I know that Sunrise's policy on the canonicity of Gundam works, is that only animated works are canon (with the TV shows being the highest priority). Does this apply to all timelines (UC, FC, AC, CE, AD, etc.), or is it UC only?

I think the word they used was "official" since there was synonym to canon in Japanese. Animations are white level, sidematerials and such are grey level while video games are black level.

They didn't say what it applies to, so I assume it means all.

Not like anyone but Sunrise gives a damn about that standing anyway.

So what is the general consensus of Gundam Age? I don't really like the art style and it leads me to believe it may be a kiddy show.

I'll watch my Little Pony: friendship is magic but no way am I watching a kiddy gundam show. I like the previous gundam series too much to go backwards.
