Mobile Suit Gundam AGE

Lots of talk of the new Gundam series flying about the interwebs. It appears Sunrise is not working on it but instead they got Level 5, known for the Inazuma Eleven and the Professor Layton series. Watching the trailer I am thinking SEED-ish animation, hopefully no recycled animation because I hated that in SEED. Character designs pretty much how I imagined Level-5 would design their characters. As for the Gundams… well at least the design isn’t as bad as Beginning Gundam but I find the normal version to be far too similar to the O Gundam, though I’m really diggin’ the MS that will serve as the GM of this series. The enemies however do raise a few eyebrows, aliens are pretty much a no-no for Gundam but if they at least have some level of intelligence which will hopefully explain why they are taking an antagonistic stance in the story then I’ll give them some leeway, otherwise they can rot in a pit alongside with the ELS.

I know the show has been getting a lot of flak ever since early screens and pics were shown off. Honestly I say we let Level-5 have a stab at the Gundam franchise, open up the franchise to a younger audience and who knows it might turn out to be good. If it’s too childish for some of you well at least Unicorn is still ongoing.

    Glad to see someone else is willing to give it a shot. And yeah I’m expecting the “aliens” we see right now turn out to be mechs that the real aliens pilot. They’ll probably be a human-like race a la the Zentradi in SDF Macross.

      I was thinking about the possible similarity with Macross aliens, then again they could end up being generic as the skrug from Heroman which won’t be cool.

    As I’ve mentioned in many blogs/posts or any news related to Gundam Age, my theory is that there are real people, humans, who are hiding in a cloak named ‘alien race’. Since that will give them mystery and it will surely intimidate us and keep us from fighting back. It’s a propaganda! Not sure though, it’s just a speculation and this is the path I have in mind to save Gundam from the ‘alien’ thing.

    As you might notice in the trailer, when he stabbed the Gafran, it didn’t bleed, giving us a clue that these UE are using mechs. But it’s still a mystery whether they are piloted by aliens or they’re just gigantic mech/metal that has their own mind.
