    it’s good news as long as it’s not another gundam seed sequel.

    I’m not really high on Gundam 00 either. Maybe they figured out that UC is the only timeline where they can make good Gundam shows?

    I was wondering when they’d make another UC show. I tend to gravitate more towards AC timelines, but Destiny and 00 have been supremely disappointing, soooo time for a change! Yes!

    Great….Sounds shitty….

    Gundam Seed and Gundam 00 were the greatest additions to date to the Gundam franchise. They need to continue building on their successes rather reverting back to the past. I have doubts on this series from what I’ve heard and now after reading that story plot above.

    Well good luck to it I suppose lol. …you guys hating on Gundam 00 up there…..have you even WATCHED it? It seems fashionable now to say it’s shit without even giving it a chance, I’d recommend watching it, it’s like watching a captivating movie.

    Listen up Shinn, I am now watching 00 season 2, ok HD is great and I wish they remaster SEED (original) in HD 1280×720. But until now 00 didn’t meet my expectations, the characters are gay, all of them except the chinese chick which I still can’t memorise her name. Still I am a little excited to know about the UC original gundam especially in HD because most of us out there wouldn’t want to watch it in that creepy 70’s animation picture. SEED is my first and last gundam I guess! heck I like the word Cosmic Era ^-^ ,I miss my GAT-X303 Aeg|s I hope they go back to C.E but not destiny shit !!! especially shinn

    OK. now here is the thing. 1 seed was ok for upstart gundam fans not diehard originals. 2. 00 was the make up gunam series for destin. though people like only certain timelines, the timelines csnt be compared to each other on an even playing field. causethe outright difference between uc, ac, aw, cc, etc… they are all seperate universes. the only time they can e compared is if they make a Super robot wars gundam cross universe series.and that would suck. they all have their ups and downs. as for the new series it just seems like an update of 8th ms team meets 0083 in hd. it just seems everyone is rebooting old serieses like dbz with dbkai, or fma. so think it is just a reboot until someone either comes out with an origional gundam idea or does 00 season 3. personallyi’d rather see some mangas turn into animes like blue divers, astrey, or (the best one in my opinion) crossbone.

    your all crazy. Gundam seed thru destiny is one of the best gundam franchise series. 00 was great too in its own way. hope fully this new one will be good. maybe theyll even put a really crazy strong gundam like the double X, that’d be cool.
