    Just gonna post the gundam related Q&A from this interview

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/conv...2011/otakon/17


    The panel began as vaunted anime producer and Sunrise's General Manager of Overseas Development, Masayuki Ozaki, welcomed the audience to Sunrise's first industry panel at Otakon, joined by Robert Napton, director of Bandai Entertainment USA. Ozaki discussed Sunrise's history and their 17-year-long partnership with Bandai Entertainment. "We, Sunrise, have made over 300 titles over 35 years. And over 70 percent of those titles are original, not based on novels or comics. This is our charictaristic peculiarity. Of course Sunrise is famous for Gundam. But there are a lot of titles...like Code Geass, Cowboy Bebop, or InuYasha," he said.

    An 18-minute promotional video for the Gundam universe was then screened, which covered the entire 32-year history of the Gundam series, noting how its roots in strong characters in real situations has tremendously shaped the entire genre of mecha anime. Afterwards, Ozaki debuted several new, never-before-seen (in English) trailers for Sunrise's 2011 lineup, including Tiger & Bunny, Sacred Seven, Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle, Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere, and ended with a colorful preview of the upcoming Gundam AGE.

    After the trailers, the floor was opened for an audience Q&A.
    Gundam Wing was remastered in Japan recently, are there any plans for a release in the US?

    Ozaki: The Gundam Wing remasters will be released in the US, but the date is TBD (to be determined).

    Robert Napton: We always work really closely with Sunrise to make sure these titles get released. This year, we brought Turn A out, finally, and First Gundam is back, so. Slowly but surely we're getting there.

    Last year I saw the giant Gundam statue in Odaiba, Japan. Any plans to bring it here to the US?

    Ozaki: I was wondering if anyone would ask that. Actually we have had a lot of offers from all over the world, in Asia and Europe and the US, but... that's TBD. In the future, I hope to bring the Gundam all over the world.

    I heard a rumor about an anime adaptation of Gundam Origins, a manga re-telling of the original Mobile Suit Gundam. Are there any further details?

    Ozaki: "So far, it is definite that Gundam Origins will be animated. But uh, we have not decided the format for the release, whether it will be a TV series or OAV series, movie, or internet stream. But we should be able to make a more solid announcement soon."

    Aside from anime titles which you can't shed more light on, are there any plans on bringing older Gundam manga titles and novels to the US?

    Ozaki: We do get fan requests for titles such as this, but currently they are not in the plans yet. But the more requests we receive, the better the prospects they have of being considered for release, so we hope for your continued requests.

    Bright Noah is rumored to have a cameo in Gundam Unicorn episode 4. Can you comment on this, considering that voice actor Hirotaka Suzuoki has passed away?

    Ozaki: Just as you mentioned, Mr. Suzuki is no longer with us, but we have an alternate cast member for Bright Noah, but we cannot announce it yet.

    There is a rumor that a new Gundam Seed film was in development, but that the project has since stalled. Can you share any news about this?

    Ozaki: It's true we announced 2 years ago that there would be a movie of Gundam Seed. However there's been a change of circumstances and the project is currently on hiatus. So currently we can't commit to speaking of when the movie will be released.

    Have there been considerations to revise or revisit older, pre-Gundam series?

    Ozaki: The basic philosophy at Sunrise is to be creating new titles as original stories. But if there is fan demand for a remake or if a particular director or producer pitches an idea to revisit an old title, those are the elements that could make Sunrise consider a remake.

    Has Sunrise thought about streaming ZZ Gundam?

    Robert Napton: I literally answer that question almost every day of my life. We're doing the older Gundam series one by one. This year we've got Turn A and a boxed set of the original series, which I hear about almost as much.

    Ozaki: I knew that question was coming too! Unfortunately we have no plans right now on ZZ, either streaming or DVD.

    It seems like Gundam AGE is specifically targeting a younger audience, while Gundam Unicorn is more geared to the older fans. Is this intentional? Also, have you also considered doing streams of older franchises from Sunrise that might not be popular enough to sell, but be worth putting online, like Yuusha shows?

    Ozaki: Just as you said, Gundam AGE is targeted to a wider age of viewers, both older fans and younger fans. Plans outside of Japan certainly do have younger potential fans in mind, plans for streaming and other means are certainly in the works. For the answer to your 2nd question, it's not only the yuusha series but older Sunrise titles, we do have a very effective means of distribution called streaming, so we would like to release in that format as a plan, and bring back a younger audience to these older titles.

    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...ject-to-launch

    In honor of the 10th anniversary of the Mobile Suit Gundam Seed television anime, a high-definition "remaster project" is launching. Details of the remastering, including release date and price, have yet to be revealed. Mitsuo Fukuda, director of the original Gundam Seed anime, noted on his Twitter account that an official announcement about the release will come on August 26 — the official release date of the October issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Gundam Ace magazine. Fukuda thanked fans for the congratulatory comments on his Twitter page about the release, but he also expressed his disappointment that the news was leaked early.

    The latest information about the Gundam franchise will be unveiled at the Chara Hobby 2011 event on August 28 in Chiba Prefecture.

    Finished the original Mobile Suit Gundam the other week, and am 20 episodes into Zeta atm, I had no idea just how much SEED pulled directly from MSG and Zeta. Like, everything... It's almost like they just photoshopped the new characters in.

    Seed pretty much starts off as a much flashier MSG without the appeal of Bright slaps, meaning it's much worse.

    Everything else (intro, ending, mid-episode commercial breaks) should also be intact.

    AGE-2 and 3 might be fakes. Guess it's better to wait until their official reveals.

    Episode summaries:

    Episode 1: Savior Gundam - 10/10
    Flit, having become an orphan from an attack on his hometown by the mysterious enemy UE (Unknown Entity), was raised in the Federation Forces Base on Nora. Flit creates the Mobile Suit Gundam, called a "Savior" based on the blueprints in the Age Device he received from his mother. Just then, Nora comes under attack by the UE and Flit activates the Gundam!

    Episode 2: The Power of AGE - 10/16
    Nora, having come under fire from a UE attack, is collapsing. Commander Bruiser hurries with the resident evacuation. Flit, moves the Gundam and tries to escape the colony but discovers a young girl who failed to get out in time. As Flit rescues her and makes it into outer space, the UE attack! Finally, the power of the AGE SYSTEM is activated!

    Episode 3: Distorted Colony - 10/23
    The time limit on Nora’s collapse draws near. The young girl who failed to get out rides the Gundam with Flit into outer space. But there, they encounter a new black type of mobile suit. Meanwhile, as captain, Grodek controls the colony core with the Diva and carries out an operation to save many people from the destruction, but...

    Unicorn official site updated (again):

    Earth Federation Forces:
    http://www.gundam-unicorn.net/en/ms/02.html

    Earth-based Zeon Remnants:
    http://www.gundam-unicorn.net/en/ms/04.html

    Notable "new" (not really, all of these machines are survivors of previous conflicts) MS and MA to Unicorn in Ep. 4:
    E.F.F.:

    RGM-79R/RMS-179 GM II (official site has the incorrect OYW GM upgrade designation wrong; GM IIs built after their introduction in the early 0080s use the RMS designation)

    MSA-005K Guncannon Detector (Zeta Mobile Suit Variations, built on the Methuss frame during the Gryps conflict; some/all of these are newly built, as Anaheim Electronics originally built two for Karaba.. one of which was lost during in re-entry for delivery)

    RAG-79 Aqua GM

    MSA-003 Nemo (developed from the GM II, with design influences from the GM Sniper II and incorporating the Movable Frame technnology from the Gundam Mk. II in the early stages of the Gryps conflict)

    RGM-96X Jesta (developed from the Jegan; as the official profile notes, their intended role is to suppress normal forces, to allow the two NT-D equipped Gundams to focus on enemy Newtypes)

    RGM-96X Jesta Cannon (if not in Ep.4, then Ep.5)
    Only 12 Jestas produced; assigned to the Ra Cailum for evaluation.

    RMV-1 Guntank II

    RMS-179/RGM-79R GM II variation with the Ground Gundam/GM's shield (brand new for Unicorn)

    RX-160 Byalant

    RX-0 Unicorn Gundam "Banshee" (at the Augusta Newtype Labs)

    AMX-004G/AMX-017 Qubeley Mass Production-type (surviving unit present at Augusta)

    Neo-Zeon/Earth-based Zeon Remnants:

    AMA-X7 Shamblo
    AMS-129M Zee Zulu
    MS-05L Zaku I Sniper

    MS-06D Desert Zaku (improved version of the original Zaku Desert Type from the OYW; improvements to mobility, power output, and thruster fuel capacity compliment the sand filters that allow it to be buried for ambushes in the desert)

    MS-06K Zaku Cannon
    RMS-192M Zaku Mariner

    AMX-101K Galluss-K (uses the Hyper Knuckle Buster beam cannon of the AMX-008 Ga-Zowmn, from which it was canniballized primarily due to the relatively poor maintenance capability of the Earth-based Zeon Remnants and lack of parts for the maintenance-intensive transforming MS of previous wars)

    RMS-108 Marasai (somewhat surprising it shows up in Unicorn, considering it was never produced in overly large numbers despite its marked superiority to the Hi-Zack; the few Titans that survived the Gryps conflict were largely used as fodder by the Haman and Glemly factions in ZZ)

    MSM-07 Z'gok (OYW survivor; as the official profile notes, it's still deadly nearly two decades after introduction, pretty much due to very little advancement in amphibious MS. Interesting side-note: MSV-sources suggest that these Z'gok are likely of the S-type, or the "later production type" bloc.)

    MS-09F/trop Dom Tropen
    MS-09G Dowdage
    MS-06V Zaku Tank
    MS-07C-3 Gouf Heavy Arms-type (dual hand machine cannons)
    AMX-109 Capule
    MSM-04G Juagg (with beam cannons)
    MSM-08 Zogok (land combat variant; brand new variation)
    MS-08TX/N Efreet Nacht (kunai-armed)
    MS-14D Gelgoog Desert-type
    Many Zeon MS from 0080: War in the Pocket

    Unconfirmed appearances:
    MSA-004K Nemo III
    AMX-101 Galuss J

    Ships:
    Federation:
    Ra-Cailum and Clop-classes (pretty much unchanged from CCA).
    A Pegasus-class refit similar to the Albion from 0083, or the Thoroughbred/Grey Phantom refits of 0080. It seems it -may- be the Albion, but I can't confirm yet.

    Zeon:
    Mad Angler-class (has recieved some refitting, since the OYW).
    Jukon-class refit submarine (not the original type; see U-801 from 0083); it is the same Jukon-U Himalaya from the novels.

    Expect more MS to show up in Ep.5 as the Republic of Zeon enters the conflict..

    Republic of Zeon:
    RMS-106 Hizack (RoZ colors; we'll likely see some of the second-line Federation units still using these, in their dark navy blue Federation colors)
    RMS-106CS Hizack Custom (RoZ colors; also probably with alternate armaments..)
    RMS-119 EWAC Zack "Eye-Zack" (RoZ colors)
    RMS-099B Sturm Dias
    RMS-117B Galbaldy Beta
    MS-11 Act Zaku (might show up in Ep.4 with some of the Earth-based Zeon Remnants too)
    MS-09R Rick-Dom (some might be using the rocket bazooka the Dreissen uses)

    Ships:
    Probably the usual mix of Musais (of all production blocs, but mainly the Musai Kai), Chivvay Kai (probably some of the earlier models too), and some other castoffs from Zeon remnants that didn't join Haman/Char/Full Frontal.

    Some hint dropping in Gundam-centric publications and such also suggest we'll be seeing some relative rarities as well (variations, etc.).

    Also, expect the following in Sleeves markings:

    RMS-154 Barzam
    NRX-044 Asshimar
    AMX-011 Zaku III
    AMX-014 Dooben-Wolf
    AMX-102 Zssa
    AMX-008 Ga-Zowmn
    AMX-107 Bawoo (production model; lacks the second cockpit in the lower body-half).

    On the Federation side:

    RGC-90 Jegan Cannon
    RAS-96 Anksha (GM-ized Asshimar)


    Also seems like the mass-production MS from Sentinel will make cameos; examples being the Nero, Refined Barzam, and Xeku Eins. I suspect this is probably speculation, unfortunately.

    Finally, Episode 5 will probably mark the introduction of the Dogosse Gier-class battlecruiser, General Revil, as well as old vessels like the Salamis Kai-class cruisers , and Columbus Kai-class carriers.

    Bumping.

    Great majority of my previous post lists all the confirmed MS that will appear in Episode 4; there's alot of surprises (RX-160 Byalant especially, given there was only 2-3 produced.. Jerid Messa obviously reduces that number remaining to 1-2).

    Another big surprise is that any of the OYW Pegasus-class is still around, especially any of the later-production bloc refits (Albion, Blanc Rival, Grey Phantom, Thoroughbred). The Titans supposedly had all of these MS carriers scrapped when the Alexandria-class began production in late 0083. Speaking of which, don't expect any Alexandria-class cruisers; their association with the Titans led them to be quietly mothballed after the Titans were annhilated (and the Federation abandoned their support of them).
    *Further update regarding this; it seems it may indeed be the Albion, and likely the last remaining member of the Pegasus-class.

    Also, it seems the Argama (not the Nahel Argama, the successor ship) is indeed still around in 0096. It's not clear with what branch of the Federation it is currently serving (some publications from awhile ago suggest its with the 3rd Londo Bell unit; the Nahel Argama is the 4th). What this means is unclear at the moment, but knowing the direction the OVA's taken with old units, it'll show up somewhere.

    Edit: I also wanted to point out that the Nemos are oddly using the old 90mm GM rifle from 0083 (GM Customs and the GM Cannon IIs primarily used these), as well as sporting the GM Sniper II colors (powder blue/dark sea blue).
