Out of everything seen so far, I still think the music is the strongest aspect of the show so far; at least based on the PV anyways. I hope the scenario will work out well.

The music was the first thing that stood out to me as well. I really hope it's like that throughout the whole series!

It's been a bit of a while since I've watched Gundam, but this has me rather eager to see what this will be like.

Starting to look good. I hope it lives up to the visuals and music they showed in the video.

The idea of the Gundam developing as the series goes is quite interesting. This series is looking very promising so far. I'd very much like a simul-dub.

Now this series looks great, specially the music and I really hope this one doesn't get screw up like the crap that was G Reconguista,

To be honest wanted a more strong female pilot as a main protagonist. Gundam seems to stick a mainly boys club theme. Mecha design is good but this series will be borrowing bits and pieces from other Gundam series to make a plot

Gundam has never had one so I didn't expect them to start now. Hopefully there at least will be some female ace pilots. Those are super rare as most female pilots have been bumbling fools, but the ones we did get have been great.

To me this really got a old 80's feel to it just by the way it looks. It really feels like fang of the sun dougram to me with the theme centered around children after war had ravaged their homes and need something to hold on to. I may be wrong but I hope this show really delivers.

That's one of the things people have been asking for years but Sunrise has yet to deliver

I wouldn't call Roux Louka, Fa Yuiry, Christina Mackenzie, Emma Sheen, Elle Vianno, Karen Joshua or Lunamaria Hawke a bunch of bumbling fools.

I was half expecting a non-male MC, but they didn't do that. Gonna have to wait until they decide to animate Gundam École du Ciel. Oh well, I like Mikazuki's design anyway and I'm hoping for a solid product more than anything, with a few deviations and refinements to the franchise.

You are acting like I said all female pilots in gundam are bumbling fools. Though yeah I do think some you mentioned are.

Roux - fine

Fa - Definitely bumbling fool of a pilot. Did you close your eyes every time she showed up to fight? She is just like Kats: there to get in everyone's way.

Christina - She lost with her top of the line Gundam to a Zaku which also had a rookie pilot. Definitely a trash tier pilot. Definitely a bumbling fool.

Emma - She is awesome. Definitely ace level.

Elle - Like most of Judau's friends, she is a joke. Definitely a bumbling fool.

Karen - Not an ace, but she is clearly experienced and knows what she is doing. Definitely not a bumbling fool.

Lunamaria - Not really a super amazing pilot, but she keeps up. So I'll agree she isn't a bumbling fool.

So you came up with 4 female pilots who actually know what they're doing out of all the gundam series...

While she got the suit wrecked, technically she won, plus she was just a test pilot. Also, the Alex was finetuned for Newtype reaction times (specifically intended for Amuro, whose reflexes were overworking mechs), making it extremely difficult for those who aren't Newtypes to control.
