    Default New Gundam series coming

    This coming June 13, Bandai and Sunrise will have a live press conference to announce a new Gundam series. Also, some people from the Gundam 00 are involved in this new project. I'm betting it's another AU series. Anyway, I will post more as this gets updated.

    I sincerely hope it's an AU series. As much as I like UC, I honestly believe it has been covered to death.

    Ideally, I'd love to see AC revisited 08th MS Team-style but I know that won't happen.

    If they're going to make another AU series, I just hope it's on a more realistic level and can play on the same ground as the big-boys of UC. AU has a tendency to push on the borders of Real-Robo, and turn it's pilots and mobile suits into borderline superheros from Super-Robo series. Basically, I'd hope for an AU series that is less juvenile and more realistic.

    And maybe they'll slip in the release date for the fourth Unicorn OVA...

    I have always enjoyed AU a lot more than UC, so I'm all for a new AU series.
    It's probably too much to expect something on par with Wing or SEED though...

    90 percent it's going to another AU show. I just hope the character designs don't look too feminine... But I guess that's hoping too much, I'm sure Bandai and Sunrise still wanna target yaoi fangirls.

    You know, I didn't even notice this trend until you mentioned it XD

    Now that I think about it, 00 was borderline, but it was especially prominent in Wing, SEED, and SEED Destiny.
    Gee, now I wonder why so many yaoi doujin are floating on the net concerning KiraxAthrun. =x In Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei, the reference of DearkaxYzak also came up on more than one occasion. (Both pairs are from SEED >.>)

    It's probably gonna happen again. Since (probably) more men than women are Gundam fans, of course the producers would want to find ways to attract female viewers. ;D

    Isn't the new series being released Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn? I saw new screenshots of crazy gundams and a newer looking Char Aznable

    Default Re: New Gundam series coming

    As more and more info is leaked out about the new Gundam series, it being called "Gundam AGE" by the way, I find myself a tad skeptical about it. But please, let me know your thoughts on it. Below is a scan just recently released from CoroCoro Comics:



    Character designs, anyone? As far as my knowledge goes, this is noticeably different from any other Gundam series I've ever seen. My first thought is that these designs are meant to lean towards a younger audience, a potential deal killer for those hoping otherwise.

    As for the Gundam AGE itself, which I assume to be the main Gundam's name of course, it looks to be a cross between the Gundam Exia from Gundam 00 and the original RX-78 Gundam from Mobile Suit Gundam, or the 0 Gundam, also from Gundam 00, whichever you prefer.

    And, finally, the storyline of course. What little has been said is that an unidentified enemy, something called the "UE", is attacking the Earth, and it will fall upon the three main characters, those whom you see in the above scan, to fight them off I guess, or if it's going to pull yet another Gundam 00 Movie on us, come to some sort of weird 'understanding'... or whatever. >__>

     
    Also interesting to note, for those who don't yet know, the three main characters are all part of the same bloodline. We start off with the one who is our first pilot of the Gundam AGE, the second who is his son, and then the third who is some later descendent of that guy.

    Oh dear... Yep it's aimed towards kids. I read it over at Gundam Guy. I guess they're done with fujoshis and went back to basics.

    Eh, those kids look as old as the characters from Wing, so there's more than enough room for fujoshi to work their magic imagination.

    As for me, they look too young... >.> Actually, when I take a closer look at the text in the picture, the guy on the right is the son of the middle guy, while the guy on the left the grandson. So yea, I wonder how they are going to incorporate three generations into one show. It could get messier easily.

    With that sad, I guess they'll be relatively safe from fujoshi's imagination. =x

    The bishonen factor was much higher in 00 than either SEED or GW. That can't even be debated in my opinion.

    Gotta disagree again. GW's pilots clearly look older than those kids.

    I'll wait for a trailer before making conclusions but I don't think we'll get the realistic AU series I was hoping for.

    It'll depend on your perspective.
    Also, Gundam Wing was drawn in an older, less bishounen/bishoujo-emphasized style, so if everyone looks less bishonen, they're probably going to look older.
    But not that it matters lol. There's barely any info on this new series.

    Indeed. These new pilots look around, what would you say, thirteen years-old-ish? Admittedly the GW piloits were quite young as well, around fifteen years-old I believe; but still, you look at these new characters and a part of you half-expects them to be riding to Middle School on a bicycle, not piloting a Gundam.

    Thanks to Deacon Blues, here's an information dump.

    "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."

    Yeah...I'm out. It looks like they're making a modern shounen (maybe even kodomo, from the art style) Gundam series. AU, always dragging down the legacy...

    That's complete b.s. Just because AU series don't follow the same formula as UC doesn't mean they've dragged down Gundam's legacy.

    I will agree that the characters look somehow...out of character...for a show like Gundam, I don't remember the last time when the main characters in a Gundam series are smiling so innocently. In Wing, Seed, and 00, everyone was dead serious and ready to give it their all.

    But, this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Guess I'll wait for the trailer...

    I was looking at the magazine scans again and I noticed this.



    WHAT THE FUDGE IS THAT??? So is this a "UE"? So the enemies this time are alien dragons?

    Plus I heard the kids don't even pilot the Gundams. I hear they control them via remote but I'm not really sure. I hope that's not true.

    It's June 13 and the official announcement is finally here, folks.

    MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM AGE

    Story

     
    The story will span a century and three generations of Gundam pilots. In the year A.G. (Advanced Generation) 101 — several hundred years after humans migrated to space colonies — an Unknown Enemy (UE) suddenly attacks the space colony Angel and destroys it. The calamity and the huge loss of life became known afterward as "The Day the Angel Fell From the Skies."

    Seven years later, the war with the UE comes to the once peaceful colony where seven-year-old Furitto Asuno lives. When Furitto loses his mother to the war, he is entrusted with the "AGE Device," a memory unit which has been handed down from generation to generation in his family. On the device are the designs for "Gundam," an ancient mobile suit known as a savior. Furitto resolves to build the Gundam.

    In the year A.G. 115, 14-year-old Furitto is at the Earth Federation base Arinsuton on the space colony Nora. For seven years, Furitto has continued developing with the base's engineers, and at last the "Gundam" is complete. The Gundam is equipped with the AGE System, which allows the unit automatically evolve. However, the UE has arrived at Nora, and Furitto must fight in the very Gundam he built himself.


    Susumu Yamaguchi will direct the anime. He worked on various Gundam shows before as a key animator and he's currently the director of Keroro Gunsou. The president of the game company, Level 5, will be supervising the story and they're planning to develop an RPG game. Kanetake Ebikawa, Junya Ishigaki, and Kenji Teraoka are all contributing to the mechanical designs. All three worked on Gundam 00 and that's why the mecha designs look similar to Gundam 00.

    Mechanics.

     

    GUNDAM AGE-1 NORMAL [AGE-01]
    Legendary savior, holder of the mobile suit name "Gundam" . Developed through the data retrieved from the AGE device passed down from the Asuno family. This mobile suit is perhaps the only way to fight the UE.



    GUNDAM AGE-1 TITUS (AGE-1T)
    Suggested by the AGE System. A new body type design for Gundam AGE-1. It is designed to be a martial arts battle unit to go against enemies with its great strength.



    GUNDAM AGE-1 SPALLOW (AGE-1S)
    Another new mobile suit design suggested by the AGE System. It's specialty is speed just like a ninja, and able to dispatch enemies quickly.



    AGE System:
    The AGE System had been engineer by the lineage of the Asuno family. It researches the evolution of living beings by digitizing the mysteries surrounding it. Frit took this and further developed it. It collects battle data to customize itself. it grows alongside the pilot and is customized and used exclusively by the pilot. The only person who can use this system is the main character, Frit.
    In order to mobilize the Gundam, the AGE Device (bloodline of Asuno Family) will be the key.
    The AGE System + Mobile Suit + Frit = Gundam


    And now for the trailer:


    This might actually be good and I am now optimistic about the series. The trailer actually was kinda awesome. I now view the character designs as some sort of throwback to retro mecha shows and it's certainly a lot better than the feminine bishounen designs of past Gundam shows like SEED and 00. I don't really have a problem with young protagonists, I mean Uso was 13 in Victory Gundam. Even the dragon enemy thingy doesn't look bad.

    I guess now I'm looking forward to this new Gundam series.

    This new "Gundam AGE" seems to incorporate a lot of plot elements from Seed, Wing, and even Mobile Suit Gundam. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing I suppose, but it does present something of a lack of originality.

    That aside... I think this would've been better with the more bishounen oriented design rather than this kid-like one. Furitto is supposed to be 24-years old by the time he completes his Gundam and gets to fighting, correct? Well I still stand by what I said in that he looks around 13.

    Oh well. The trailer was enough in that I'll give this a few episodes, though I think it's much too early to get one's hopes up just yet.

    LOL I'm not sure if they intentionally spelled the 3rd suit's name "Sparrow" as "Spallow", or if it was an honest mistake. =x
    Considering that the suit is noted for its agility and swiftness, "sparrow" would make a lot more sense. In fact, I'm not even sure what "spallow" means.
