    Unicorn Gundam ends either this year or next. Still no word on that SEED Movie, Sonomaa.

    I'm almost certain it's going to be 2012 for Unicorn; they haven't even gotten to the second battle of Dakar yet. Episode 4 should probably only cover just up to before that point. The last two will cover Dakar and the conclusion of the story (unless the considered deviations from the novel's ending necessitate a seventh episode.. but that's well outside the scope of possibility right now).

    I'm such a sucker for Gundam. This pleases me greatly. But yeah, I'd agree on the 2012 for Unicorn. There's still a lot of story to throw around there

    UC has been played out for too long. Get some originality out there. The only UC timeline I absolutely want animated is Crossbone Gundam.

    If they were to do this, it'd probably just have to be OVA format. Infact, they should just go ahead and do a set of three OVAs; F91, Crossbone, and I guess Skull Heart plus Steel Seven. Or perhaps there's enough there for a 50-episode TV series, altogether. There is a good deal left out of the original plans for that F91 TV series afterall, even if it was just roughly ten episodes worth of script/story. Regardless, F91 as a movie rather sucked due to all the compromises made.

    I liked Gundam 00 till the movie. The 2nd season wasn't as good as the first but compared to SeeD it was awesome. Don't think there's much more they can do with that though unless they do a prequel season or something.

    Unless this is an OVA I'm not expecting it to be UC related. Either way I'm eager to find out as I'm a Gundam nerd. If it's a new G Gundam series I might cry tears of joy.

    Agreed, the second half of 00 had alot of pacing issues and virtually ignoring a certain character (Graham) for significant periods of time. Still, even with those flaws, it made up for being subjected to nearly half a decade of Seed.

    I didn't like the movie really at all; not because of the aliens, but moreso because of the derpy approach taken with some characters. The only Gundam movie to really not have some glaring flaws might be Char's Counterattack. Even then, i'm not a fan of movies being used to close storylines in Gundam, it honestly never really feels like it works out as well as an OVA might. Maybe that's just me though.

    As long as it's not Seed-related, i'm looking forward to the upcoming announcement/series. I'd think it'll begin airing this fall. I just hope it doesn't fuck with the Unicorn Master Grade releases this year; the Delta Plus isn't until August, and we're already going to see an Endless Waltz Ver. Sandrock/Heavyarms in the next couple months/very early next year. I would be somewhat shocked if they can't even time the Banshee to Episode 4 this fall.

    Hahaha, some of the artist interpretations of what that outline is on /m/ are hilarious.

    Anyway, many have noted it looks a lot like Strike, but based on the reasoning behind the delay/potential cancellation of the SEED film, I doubt it's that.

    Hoping for a new timeline, hoping for better writing. Loved the mech designs in 00 for the most part (well really just the Exia).

    Ordered an MG Strike E + IWSP Lukas colors, should be here tomorrow. Can't wait for an EW ver. Sandrock

    Whatever they do, I hope it will be one season long. Gundam's writers can't write anything past that.

    UC is definitely old and played out.


















































    I still hope 3000% that it's going to be a new UC series, goddamn I love me some UC

    for that matter they can just use whatever the hell timeline, story, and characters they want as long as they use The Winner as the OP

    Season 1 was pretty much perfect for me(minus Lockon not using TransAm until the movies fixed that). Alot of people complained about not a lot of action the first half, but a good Gundam series has never been about constant action from beginning to end. The series built up to that point and practically every character was developed and had some part of their past resolved when it finally ended.

    Season 2 lost me with the lockon thing. It was hard to take them seriously after that.

    @Cleverness

    Lack of action never bothered me, but a few thing just fell off in that show toward the end. The way they killed some character, or never developed other was annoying.

    Don't think there's anything that interesting that can be done in the UC anymore, except maybe a series that leads up to the events that caused the original Moonlight Butterfly. Love me some Turn A / Turn X action.

    I liked 00 (aside from the movie) as well, the problem is that it was airing around the same time as Geass and Geass R2, so it got completely out-hyped in my head on a weekly basis.

    This will almost certainly be a weekly series. Unicorn is excellent, but we need a frequently airing Gundam series. It's been far too long.

    For me it was "get attached to a mobile suit and it gets asploded in the next episode," but yeah.

    Maybe they could somehow make Season 1 of F91 and then Crossbone, or do some timeskip thing and then bam Crossbone in one season?
