    It looks interesting and the animation seems beautiful. I'm definitely ready for more UC.

    They're clearly reusing Unicorn's and Sinanju's designs but I don't really mind that.

    I'm hyped for it.

    I'm not happy about when they decided to make it take place, but hopefully it'll be an improvement over Unicorn, which declined greatly as it went on. Phenex, the leftover RX unit finally being used is an interesting move at least, but Unicorn got pretty bullshitty especially at the end.

    Hathaway, Bright's asshole son is getting an entire trilogy dedicated to his fuck ups? :lmao

    That's what's apparently happening I think. I know very little about it, but I know how it all ends up for Hathaway.

    Sweet, I'm always up for more Universal Century Gundam, this Narrative show, Hathaway's Flash and the Unnamed show, three things to look forward I guess.

    Maybe one day we may even get that mythical anime adaptation of Crossbones.

    Notice how in the timeline Victory is nowhere to be seen, Tomino really managed to convince Sunrise to pretend Victory never happened, lol.

    I'm not in the mood for more Unicorn. I understand that the 1/1 unicorn is the current flagship of the franchise but I'm just not looking forward to the countless Unicorn variants we'll see from here on out. Its also nice that we're stepping away from early UC however I had hoped they would go past F91 or possibly Victory.
    About the Gundam itself I guess it's different so it has that going for it? I do like the fact that it might have a core fighter but it just looks really incomplete to me and also like an amalgamation of various premade MS's. I'm down for the sinanju stein and the fenex is well a gold unicorn so yeah. Looks like we're also getting at least getting a Hathaways Flash movie so that should be interesting.
    Anyway that's all I really have to say. I'll probably watch it. Or not.

    They sure like the UC, huh? Well, it does make sense I suppose. Anyway, not so sure on the title but will check it. Plus adult MCs is always a plus.

    Can't wait to see what kind of overpowered newtype hax they come up with for the final.

    Doubt it'll top stopping a colony laser shot and disabling an entire fleet with a hand-wave but hey you never know.

    I'd rather get this than more Build Fighters or overhyped IBO trash.

    Ok that was cool, let's see if they manage to outdo Banana's episode 7 bullshit of newtype hax.

    No one brought up IBO or Build Fighters to begin with. Regardless there will be more Build Fighters because they make money.

    I still don't see much that gives this series any potential. Just looks like another rehashed exploitation and repetition of CCA and Unicorn and the fact its an indirect sequel to Unicorn doesn't give me much hope. Audrey/Mineva was by far an incredibly bland character and Sunrise needing to keep fulfilling the Federation vs Neo-Neo-Neo-Neo Zeon remnants has been old for years now.

    They could've at the very least adapted Crossbone Vanguard or Hathaway's Flash instead of this. No wonder Tomino is fed up with Bandai since the 90s.

    They are doing Hathaway's Flash though, as a movie trilogy. They announced this and that at the same time.

    I'm aware but its some kind of quasi-sequel that has to do with a future set after season 2 of that trainwreck. We're also getting more 00 as well thankfully.

    Figured but since you didn't mention it I thought it'd be worth posting.

    Definitely more excited for 00, not sure how to feel after that little preview though.

    Anyone who didn't like the movie definitely failed 00's Litmus test.


    I'm was hyped since months ago when it was revealed Aker was still alive and survived thanks to Setsuna communicating with the ELS and being the new MC.

    Yeah, Graham being alive is amazing, he's one my favorite characters so I'm definitely excited for that
    Spoiler: Spoiler tagged in case someone doesn't know and doesn't want to be spoiled

    Just not sure how to feel about the fact that Setsuna is somehiw reviving Neil or whatever happened in the preview. I'm happy we get more Neil but it's still a bit weird.

    Post-00 sounds worse than Post-IBO to be honest.

    Nah. IBO was more or less an edgelord version of 00 and the fact that 99% of the original main cast is dead because Nagai couldn't give two fucks about who Okada wanted to husbando in season 2 makes post-IBO even dumber because its probably going to be out Mika's retarded bastard child doing whatever with Ride or whatever the midget kid who survived's name was.

    At least with 00's movie, we're told there were multiple wars including the Innovators vs Non-Innovator humans in its epilogue before humanity truly units within itself and goes into space to meet with other aliens. There's really nothing for IBO to milk with its lore, just Bandai going for more gunpla sales.


    Are you sure about that?
