Wow, this story could use more details.

Is there anything else the original source tells us?

Prepare yourself for the silent fart known as "ZZ."

Turn A would be awesome, X would be acceptable, Victory would be slightly disappointing, ZZ would be highly disappointing.

I wonder if they also plan to release Gundam Evolve. It'd also be great if we could get some dual audio 0079 as well, with all 43 episodes (nerds love completion, Tomino).

There's basically only the ones named above that aren't licensed here. I wonder why Brain Powerd, Betterman, and nearly every other late 90's Sunrise show was licensed except for Turn A Gundam. I think aside from the series, all that's left are compilation movies like the Zeta ones and the one for 0083.

My hope would be for the Zeta and Char's Counterattack BluRays, but I highly doubt it. Both look fantastic though.

Not a big Gundam fan but wonder which series they mean.

Glad to see that someone's realizing that there are plenty of us willing to support this!

Hopefully, they mean all of the ones not officially released outside of Japan.


And I too would prefer a Blu-Ray release of Z Gundam. And I don't even own a Blu-ray player.

What I'd really like is a bilingual DVD release of Turn A Gundam. As far as an English dub, just don't get James Corrigall to direct it. He ruined Zeta's dub, he ruined 00's dub, he'll ruin this, too.

Anyway, even streaming with subtitles would be fine if they do Turn A and X.

I agree with Zeta, but he did a great job with 00 I think that fact that Ocean Group reuses the same voice actors in each adaptation is what's irritated me. Anyway good to see some much needed love for X and Turn A two of the most unappreciated entries in the franchise. As for a dub I think we saw a preview of who would voice Loran in Dynasty Warriors Gundam here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGE08uibHMY and here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sw2w_eluWNc&feature=related

So not a new anime series on TV, but a recap on the Gundam continuity via internet streaming. Guess it's just not worth the effort on making anime for Japanese TV anymore, even for the mighty Gundam franchise.

Well, make the power of Turn A compels thee!

I respectfully disagree. The voices were either poorly cast or terrible directed, because half the time they sounded like they were half-asleep or were doing it poorly on purpose. Sergei's voice made my ears bleed a little. And they must think viewers are too stupid to pick up on Scott McNeil as every background voice.

00's dub was pretty terrible.

Of course, I also thought the show itself was pretty awful, but whatever.

I like that they've narrowed it down in this article to any of about 25 different TV series and movies. Very Happy
