Tbf, there are fans who don't stay up to date with all the happenings of what goes on in the franchise (my relationship with AGE, G-Reco and Build Divers for example ) and there are also casuals who selectively watch certain sub-series, but still identify themselves as "fans". It's harder for these "fans" to keep up with movies/ovas that are released via Bluray or DVD as they may not even know it exists and if they do, they may not know the release dates.

It's much easier for them to watch said show on TV as it'll be easier to keep track of and there's also the added benefit of more exposure and widespread appeal that a TV series has vs the niche of movies/OVAs to those outside the target audience.

Besides, on the business side of things, Sunrise saves quite a bit of money because it'll cost significantly less to edit already existing material for TV instead of doing an entirely new project and putting it out. Even if the profits they make are small, it's still profit nonetheless.

.
Putting it on TV just mean glorified TV commercial. Also time slot usually involve long term contract. it sometimes more beneficial to pad something instead losing it outright

Well, we can't really be sure unless we see the actual contract and how much they pay for the slot, can we?

Also, it's not like this is the first time Bandai do questionable business moves. Remember the baffling thing they did for AGE? For a series that was flopping in almost every department imaginable, instead of stopping it and cut their losses after the TV series ended, they actually doubled down on it by making the "Memories of Eden" OVA with lots of new footage added, wasting even more money on it. And the result? It's still a major flop. One of the biggest that Bandai had to suffer.

So yeah, 00 was there, represented by ELSetsuna holding a flower in front of Mikazuki.
Are you sure the first one isn't SEED x MSG? Would be weird for SEED not to get one.

Posters are pretty cool though. But the thought of Mika meeting Metal Setsuna makes me lol really.

Haak, read the little lines in the poster. It's clearly written as "Banagher Links meets Amuro Ray". So yeah, that's Banagher's face inside that helmet.

Also, what characters from SEED that you think matches the face inside the helmet? It's clearly not Hirai-face .

^ The helmet is also clearly Unicorn Pilot's helmet with the distinctive two red lines on the forehead of a fishbowl form. Most of SEED's helmets have protrusions on the front.

Another sad news, guys. We just lost another Gundam talent:

Yuu Yamamoto, writer of 11 episodes of MSG TV series and scriptwriter for MSG Movie Trilogy passes away at 71.

Oh btw, we have this little teaser for SD Gundam Sangoku Soketsuden:

With the "Sangoku" in the title, it's obviously gonna be based on "Romance of the Three Kingdom". If the CG is good, this should be a fun SD show to watch.

Even though the property existed way back when, I'm interested to see how this will tie into Unicorn/NT, if at all, considering this being part of Sunrise's "Gundam NexT 100" initiative, with Gundam NT which preceeds Hathaway's Flash and then "Gundam UC2" coming out after it.

Tokyo police have arrested two former employees of toymaker Bandai Co. on suspicion of fraud in connection with the construction of the 18-meter-tall Gundam robot in the Odaiba district of the capital.

So, this is how the corruption within the Earth Federation started, eh? A couple of officers making illegal profit on the Gundam project .

Most recent interview with Kanetake Ebikawa (mecha designer of 00, AGe & IBO).

Snippets from the interview:
Quote:
"From my youth, I was interested in design and watching anime was one of my hobbies, but things really changed for me when I first saw Patlabor. That was when I thought about moving this hobby thing more into a proper job."

"When it comes to my favorite mecha designer though, as I said before I do really respect the people running at the forefront of the industry and one of those that I particularly respect is Kunio Okawara. In the original Mobile Suit Gundam openings, I found his name pop up in the credits under "mecha design". Back then, I really tried to get beneath the skin of what kind of person he is. Around that time, it was when I saw the anime Muteking and again I saw his name attached to the mecha design. I was shocked by that. I was not able to believe that someone that drew the designs for Gundam could also draw designs for mecha that were these comical beings in Muteking."

"In terms of Gundam 00, since that was my first Gundam title that I had worked on it was something that I was frantically trying to do my best on. Back then I didn't have much space to consider my own direction."

"With Gundam AGE, since most of the mecha on the protagonist’s side were assigned to me, I was able to design them by considering coherency among them and adjusting their overall looks. There were some restrictions due to toy merchandising, but I think I was able to finish them up well."

"When I had originally talked to Masakazu Ogawa I said that I would like to work on the enemy mecha design this time if he would like to engage me. In Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans I worked on designing the Graze. In the way that we have the classic Gundam and the Zaku, the Zaku exists so that you have a better recognition of the Gundam. I wouldn't say it is as clear-cut as light and shadow but for the Graze, the Gundam Barbatos is its opposite existence. The Graze is there to make the Gundam Barbatos more distinct. So having the Graze being able to work with the main Gundam was important."

Guys, it's very sad to say, but we just lost Mirai

May she rests in peace. We're going to really miss you, Miss Shiraishi as well as your Mirai character. She finally went after her anime-husband, Hirotaka Suzuoki as Bright Noa.

Now, both the power couple of UC will (presumably) finally be voiced by new Seiyuus in Hathaway's Flash after Ken Narita stepped up for the late Suzuoki.
