Title: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Kairu de Large on June 02, 2007, 12:33:17 PM
From Gunota:
"A very short promo appeared after today's episode of TBS/MBS' "Toward The Terra" announcing a new Gundam series. Mobile Suit Gundam 00 (Double Oh) is set to air at 6pm on Oct 2007. The official site is up providing a streaming promo.

Known details are:
Setting - 2307 AD ("seireki", Japanese for "anno domini")
Characters - 4 Gundam Meisters, who pilot the mobile weapons.
Factions - Solestal Beings (not real sure on the English name right now), a private militia group whose purpose is to eradicate wars.
Tagline at the end of the commercial - "Rebirth begins through destruction"

Rumors about the series have been going around Japanese message boards for some time, especially after Sunrise registered several Gundam00 domains. The proclamation that the setting would neither be in the Universal Century of the original nor the Cosmic Era of Gundam SEED, as stated by Sunrise's Yasuo Miyakawa, seems to have been followed through with. Staff members are yet to be confirmed although the most persistent rumor is that the series will be directed by Fullmetal Alchemist's Seiji Mizushima."

First off if Mizushima directs it I would not have a problem. He did a very good job directing the FMA series. Second, this series better not be as disappointing as GSD was. I like GS, but GSD was a total letdown.

Overall with the lack of information on this series I really have nothing left to say.

I just watched the first episode (gonna be watching the second one here in a little bit) and I have to say...

I'm greatly pleased with what I saw. The animation is fluid and smooth. Really catchy to the eye. The fights in the first episode was nice and the story didn't drag with long introduction sequences. They jumped in straight to the story. The music and voice acting were amazing. I already can't wait to watch the second episode :D

hahaha its nice man ;D, straight to the action, hope they keep it up ;)
it kinda remids me of Gundam Wing with a crossover with Gundam X(just my opinion on the first episode) and the Main gundam is still colored white and blue
Title: Re: New Gundam Series: Gundam 00
Post by: Aoshi101 on October 24, 2007, 01:14:42 PM
Yeah I noticed that about the Gundam. I guess thats suppose to have a connection to all the other gundam series saying "This is an official gundam series" or something.
Title: Re: New Gundam Series: Gundam 00
Post by: Kite on October 24, 2007, 08:02:21 PM
is that so, Exia looks like a crossover between Turn A and Victory Gundam dont you think ??? i wanna watch the other episodes now(only watched 1-3)
Title: Re: New Gundam Series: Gundam 00
Post by: Aoshi101 on October 24, 2007, 08:31:19 PM
It does, I agree. When I first saw Exia though the white blue gold (yes it has gold on the vents) made me think of the strike freedom paint scheme. Which in my eyes wasn't a very good scheme with the gold coloring.
Title: Re: New Gundam Series: Gundam 00
Post by: Kite on October 24, 2007, 08:36:02 PM
the gundam there are like the Death Scythe all of them has jammers but i want to know where do they get that Gold light, all of the other forces wants to get it
Title: Re: New Gundam Series: Gundam 00
Post by: Aoshi101 on October 24, 2007, 08:52:31 PM
The light is solar power from what was explained in the 3rd episode. Now how they are able to contain the solar energy is still a mystery. Also one of the pilots mentioned about having to go back and recharge. Meaning its not like the nuclear power the Freedom and Justice had in Seed and Destiny. Which I'm glad cause that made the Gundams too powerful if they didn't have a weakness of some sort.
Title: Re: New Gundam Series: Gundam 00
Post by: Kite on October 24, 2007, 08:57:59 PM
yeah i saw episode 3 too, their weakness is the same as the first models in Destiny and Seed, but still, can solar power can prevent/jam signals so they cannot be seen by radar?, and the only gundam that went for recharge is the Virtue(i guess that cannon uses too much energy) while the others stay on earth
Title: Re: New Gundam Series: Gundam 00
Post by: Aoshi101 on October 24, 2007, 09:01:28 PM
There's definitely something else in the specs that cancels out signals. But in order to use that equipment it would need the gundam to emit off more solar energy to power it?

Its possible. And you noticed the other gundams didn't use much as far as weaponry like the Virtue. The most out of the other three was used was Stratos' sniper rifle. But how much power could using that really take?
Title: Re: New Gundam Series: Gundam 00
Post by: Kite on October 24, 2007, 09:06:58 PM
I guess the Cannon of the Virtue uses its solar energy to fire that attack, and the only one who uses the closes type of attack is the dynames

ahh cant wait for the other episodes

Post by: Judau on February 26, 2008, 07:12:18 AM
While I'm not caught up with this series right now, I am up to around maybe episode 12? It's been a while since I watched that episode, so I don't exactly remember... I've just been downloading it each week and not watching. However, I will say that up to the point I've seen, I'm pretty impressed. For the first time in a while, I can say I like the main character and I love the Gundam X feel with the 4 pilots being almost like the mercenaries of X, but with ideals to back it up and apparently one hell of a budget. So I guess we'll see how the series goes on...

At the very least, it'll be better then Destiny because we won't have to worry about flashbacks to a series we've seen already. ^^;;
Title: Re: New Gundam Series: Gundam 00
Post by: Kite on February 26, 2008, 02:09:18 PM
yeah its going to be better since the only flashback you see were the past of the characters but damn theres a lot of hating going in that series i mean theres setsuna and his gang mates and now saji...well i totally expected that something would happen to saji and louise^^
Title: Re: New Gundam Series: Gundam 00
Post by: Aoshi101 on February 27, 2008, 06:00:51 PM
One flashback episode which wasn't really a full flashback episode. Half the episode was a be of recounting that looked like it was setup for those who decided to skip episodes and needed a brief summary. The other half was new information and scenes. So definitely not like Destiny.

Judau, you'll be more amazed when you finally catch up. So much happens in the episodes you haven't seen yet. I'm surprised how much they are able to fit in one episode and still make it work.

Saji is definitely going to do something big. I hope they don't turn it towards a GSD look alike with new more powerful gundams etc etc. kind of thing. We all do know that Saji is going to find out eventually that Setsuna is one of the meisters. He'll probably get the information from what his sister left behind.

I'm impressed by the director of the series. I wasn't a big big fan of FMA at all even though FMA was a decent series, but his work on this series is impressive.

Sounds like it's pretty good, I guess I may watch it.
btw the only Gundam series I liked was Gundam Wing and G-Gundam. Didn't like Gundam SEED. It was too drmtic for me, almost like I was watching a soap opera

Ah, that's not bad at all... it's typical to have one or two recap episodes, but a half is nice. :) Hopefully there won't be another later on, as well.

Eh, that usually means the plot is far more complex. However, it depends on the balance. This drama usually comes from a few things... political/war oriented events and relationships. I think it's the balance that really matters. It seems as though in Gundam, it's best to stick to the political side, since it's really about the conflict and war. However, relationship drama is a nice breather from the political story here and there... and can be an insight into other sides of characters we wouldn't otherwise know about. SEED perhaps just had too much relationship-based drama, which I 'd probably agree with. However, overall, I think SEED did a decent job. Destiny started off great with lots of the war-oriented type, then found major issues with annoying characters and flashbacks that didn't help the story, since we had already seen it all.

Gundam 00 definitely seems to be on track from what I've seen so far... so we'll see. :)




EDIT: Ok, just caught up with episode 20... the last 5 episodes were amazing. Things got fucked up so fast, it was excellent! I can't wait to see the rest, I pray it stays this good. Every character is so three dimensional! :)
Title: Re: New Gundam Series: Gundam 00
Post by: Kite on February 29, 2008, 01:41:01 AM
but this is bugging me a little, setsuna has some characteristics thats similar to another anime character(and i dont mean heero) but i cant remember who

and i do you think saji will be like shin and try to kill setsuna with a gundam?
Title: Re: New Gundam Series: Gundam 00
Post by: Aoshi101 on February 29, 2008, 08:43:50 AM
Nah man Saji has more people to kill now than just Setsuna. There's Sarshes that killed Saji's older sister. Well at this point it looks like she's dead. And as I explained at another site it may turn out to be one of those "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" type of things.

Also remember that it wasn't Setsuna that fired on Lousie. You know there's going to be footage or some other incriminating evidence that will save Setsuna and convince Saji to hate up on Neena Trinity.

Yeah, Setsuna really hasn't done anything wrong, let it be his current actions or his past actions... People might get wrongly angry with him, but the truth will always rise eventually. Where as everyone hatest the Trinity trio. ^^;;

Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Aoshi101 on March 02, 2008, 11:08:33 PM
I bet Saji is gonna get one either by the end of the first season, or sometime during the second season. We know its coming.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Kite on March 03, 2008, 07:03:27 AM
hehe i bet saji will develop a  hate for the celestial beings...
and finally remembered who setsuna was like, hes like sagara souske of FMP

and can some one clear this for me is it Vader or Veda and is it Lagna or Laguna? the subs keep changing and i get really confused
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Aoshi101 on March 03, 2008, 03:56:26 PM
I suggest watching Nyoro~n subs. They've stayed consistent so far, plus good quality 1280x720 mkv and avi releases. They also supply a lower dimension frames for those who can't view 1280x720.

As far as your questions go, its Veda and Laguna Harvey. Thats how Nyoro~n translates them into.

Well it seems they somehow managed to convince Saji that his sister's death maybe the work of Celestial Being. So if he develops an extreme hate for them its not going to be surprising.

Though in my speculation, if Lockon is hurt badly enough he might be out of the cockpit for a while. Which means that frees up a meister position, which means are they setting it up to where Saji might be the next chosen meister? Its possible because if you look at all the meisters backgrounds so far, they all have some sort of tragedy happen to them. With Saji having some pretty bad twist of fates in recent episodes, he could be next on the meister list, with or without Veda's prediction. Sumeragi is a good strategist and might realize the need for another meister in their arsenal.

I sort of hope not... the rest of them all have some sort of combat training and the will to fight... true he might get a will to fight after this last episode, but he's just not the pilot-type character. :-\ I can see him more taking on his father's and sister's job of journalism and researching further into Celestial Being.

and can some one clear this for me is it Vader or Veda and is it Lagna or Laguna? the subs keep changing and i get really confused

Yeah, I think they were just going by sound until the episode they changed it... it popped up at one point on the monitor and it read "Veda". And I prefer Shinsen's subs, just because I've watched many other series by them and they've always been good quality.

Though in my speculation, if Lockon is hurt badly enough he might be out of the cockpit for a while. Which means that frees up a meister position, which means are they setting it up to where Saji might be the next chosen meister? Its possible because if you look at all the meisters backgrounds so far, they all have some sort of tragedy happen to them. With Saji having some pretty bad twist of fates in recent episodes, he could be next on the meister list, with or without Veda's prediction. Sumeragi is a good strategist and might realize the need for another meister in their arsenal.

That is possible... however, remember that no one but Setsuna even knows the kid exists at this point... that's the only connection. And Setsuna hasn't even seen him in a while since he hasn't been at his apartment. So Sumeragi probably wouldn't even think of it unless she meets him somehow... perhaps if he finds out where they are and sneaks on the ship to investigate or something... but that's a long shot. ^^;; Although, all arrows do lead to space for him.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Aoshi101 on March 04, 2008, 05:22:13 PM
I do agree that more than likely Saji will try to finish the investigation into Celestial Being because thats the most probable course of action for Saji.

However the possibility does exist for the latter where Saji jumps into a suit, which I think we all agree hope doesn't happen because it seems like a repeat of what Kira did at the beginning of Seed. Though the circumstances were different, both still had a reason to jump into the suit even though they really had no combat experience to begin with.

I think Setsuna and Saji will eventually talk to each other again and Setsuna will find out what happened. Though not sure exactly what would be said, but Saji could get some information.

I dunno I'm just speculating ahaha

Though the circumstances were different, both still had a reason to jump into the suit even though they really had no combat experience to begin with.

Well, they're still different... Kira was an engineering student if I remember right... he was a coordinator, and had a huge aptitude for learning how machines and computers worked... much like how they showed young Amuro in 0079 as a mechanical genius... so he figured out how to operate the Gundam through just looking at the manual.

Saji, on the other hand, is just a kid. That's it... he's got the feelings behind him, but no skills to speak for... and Newtypes or anything of the sort don't seem to exist in the universe of Gundam 00. The closest seems to be the artificial humans/whatever. ^^;;
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Aoshi101 on March 06, 2008, 01:36:48 PM
Well remember, we know that Saji is going to be working in space. We have yet to know in what field of work. He might need some regular mobile suit experience, who knows. Until they specify in which field he's working, the possibility of him having some unspoken skills is still a possibility. But I will say thats pretty unlikely.

In the end I agree that more then likely he'll end up investigating the murder of his sister and what Celestial Being really is.

I'm also interested in what that Chinese girl is going to do now. She pledged her alliegence to the Trinities only because they can get the job done quicker, but what is that going to mean for the regular 4 meisters. Is she going to use her information to kill them off or what?
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Judau on March 10, 2008, 12:08:00 PM
Yeah, I'm wondering what she's really up to as well... the people watching Celestial Being are all quite interesting. ^^;;

I need to watch the newest episode... :(

Well no information yet on if Nyoro~n is going to drop the series. Thats the group I get my episodes from.

Well after the 22nd episode I can now say I can pretty much say the Trinities are screwed.

Yeah, I have a funny feeling SOMEONE will continue it no matter what... someone always does. And everyone knew it was coming, Bandai has been licensing most anything that's not UC here for a while... although I'd still like to get some nice DVDs of the Zeta Gundam trilogy. :(

And yeah, the Trinities are screwed indeed... ^^;; Considering there's probably only one left and her suit isn't even functioning properly.

And the whole point of this series... for Setsuna to drive the quickest Pontiac of all time. :)



EDIT: From what I can tell from Shinsen's website, it doesn't seem like they'll stop either. :) They were just a bit late in releasing this episode I guess?


EDIT: And I'm having trouble finding information on the license... where did you guys hear this? I figured it would be on ANN or Gunota Headlines... and AnimeSuki still has the episodes up...

I just can't beilev Lockon is dead, He was my favorite character. Now they will have to deal with that Giant ship like Gundam.
I only have one question, Where the hell is that girl from trinity trio, after her brothers died and setsuna saves her she just up and vanish. Like she has some place to go.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Aoshi101 on April 13, 2008, 11:01:28 PM
I believe the chinese informat, Miu something or whatever, has something to do with Neena's disappearance.

Well you are right Kite, it was licensed but they don't have a release date yet. Either way its still being subbed so I'm happy.

I agree Melee, Lockon was my favorite as well, along with Christina, but both of them were killed. Now I'm left with no favorites at the moment.

I love the ending to season one and I can't wait for season two in october.

Post by: Judau on April 26, 2008, 03:36:52 PM
Haha, I just watched the last 3 episodes... crazy. I think I need to keep a tally on who's actually still alive at this point. ^^;;

A few things to wonder about... I assume that was Louise (now with a second arm) behind Tieria (showing emotion!)... we don't really see Allelujah die, just Hallelujah... Nena does seem to be with Miu (along with the new Gundams), I guess Aker is our new "Char" character with a mask and all, and perhaps Saji will indeed snag a Gundam now that he's up in space and it's 4 years later...

A lot to think about until October, but I'm so happy this series is still good after 15 episodes... I couldn't say the same about Destiny and SEED just wasn't this good.

Oh, and I like the look of the Gundam 0.... looks like a Mk.II/RX-79/RX-78 clone... going back to the roots! :D
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Aoshi101 on April 26, 2008, 03:43:12 PM
My question is, what is going to link all these seperate crisises together. There was Louise/Saji, Nena and the Trinities, the 4 Meisters... the only set characters that don't know about everyone else is Louise/Saji.

So if that is Louise behind Tieria in the preview for season two, how did Louise get to know Tieria, let alone (easily assumed) finding out about the gundams and why did Tieria choose her? Thats what I want to know.

I also think that Louise and Saji are going to be on different sides fighting each other in season two without knowing.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Judau on April 28, 2008, 09:07:05 AM
I also think that Louise and Saji are going to be on different sides fighting each other in season two without knowing.

Yeah, I agree... and the whole Louise thing is what really confuses me the most... Tieria's smile in that shot was also quite evil-looking... maybe he got damaged in that last fight and has deflected? So many questions to be answered and we have to wait until October... haha.

I assume there will be 3 sides to emerge from this... the new Federation that's united, an evil force led by Miu/Nena, and then the typical freedom fighter-esque force that will come in as a surprise with Setsuna as it's star... and whoever else is willing to do anything to stop war, which will be perpetuated by Miu and Nena... and somehow, Setsuna will at least get his hands on the 00 Gundam, chances are Nena will be piloting the 0 Gundam unless for some reason Tieria is on their side now.

I assume Saji will just be an underling for a while in the Federation and will eventually find himself directly behind Aker.... then end up fighting Miu/Nena's force along with Louise? Haha... oh the speculation!

I don't think Tieria has defected. I think is has something to do with Veda and Tieria's broken connection. Maybe Louise stumbled onto it, or has information on how to reconnect Tieria to Veda. What reason would Tieria have to defect?

Since Sarshes killed Nena's brothers, why would Miu and Nena want to start a total war when most likely Nena will want to exact revenge on Sarshes for the death of her brothers. I do agree that there will be 3 sides with Miu at the head of one, but I doubt Nena will be on her side.

I assume Saji will just be an underling for a while in the Federation and will eventually find himself directly behind Aker.... then end up fighting Miu/Nena's force along with Louise? Haha... oh the speculation!

I do agree with this statement. Seems like the most likely.

I don't think Tieria has defected. I think is has something to do with Veda and Tieria's broken connection. Maybe Louise stumbled onto it, or has information on how to reconnect Tieria to Veda. What reason would Tieria have to defect?

Well, my only thought would be something psycological... It's true it seems it would be odd, but there was just something about that one shot that looked fishy, like he was almost a different person. We havn't seen his condition since that battle and he got pretty messed up...

That's true, but why else would both Miu and Nena be working together and have control of the 0 Gundam and 00 Gundam? Would Miu just help her then suddenly not be on the same side?

I do agree with you on Tieria.

With Miu, remember she seems like the person to use people for her own gain. I think she's using Nena and Nena hasn't realized it cause of her own personal vengance for the death of her brothers.

I kinda agree, It's just the fact that it's about a year later and Lockon's conversation with Tiera about being human could be affecting him.
Maybe he's engaging his human side and not digital.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Judau on May 22, 2008, 12:34:40 PM
That is also possible... perhaps there is also now a total loss of Veda from his being now and he is reverting back to whoever and whatever he was before all of this happened. After all, we know practically nothing about him yet, where as we know at least some stuff about everyone else...

well I found this while searching for some info on Gundam 00. Its a picture of the new model of Gundam for season 2:

http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/2550/g00acw5.jpg

Well it definitely looks like the Gundam 00, new version of Exia. It has the GN Drives mounted on its shoulders instead of just one GN drive mounted on the back. I can see how the agility of the suit could be increased, but then I can see how it could decrease. Also with the drives on each shoulder, how would the weapons be positioned since the ability to put a gun on the shoulder is no longer there?

I saw that image on 4chan a while back. I thought it was a logical upgrade to the Exia rather than something completely out there like Strike-Freedom or Impulse-Destiny. Oh and sup. >.>

ya know for ur question about shouldered weapons, I think it's only like that just for Exia. It barley uses any guns, mainly uses swords and beam sword.

Nah I haven't been paying much attention lately. Checking 4chan's /m/ or browsing 2chan(japanese original version) are probably the best bet for seeing things like that.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Aoshi101 on July 05, 2008, 09:03:52 PM
Well Exia was built for close combat but it does carry a holdout gun if I remember right.

Eh I've only been to 4chan a couple times, never really got into that type of setup. I just google everything ahaha
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Judau on August 01, 2008, 11:10:29 AM
Haha, Kyle goes on 4-chan?! Just stay in /m/.  ;)

And I think that's a good idea having them on each shoulder... the guns could always attach on the back or underneath the arms as we've seen many times in the past. :)

I believe there's a preview trailer out for the second half, no? I think I downloaded it the other day but havn't watched it yet...
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Kairu de Large on August 24, 2008, 01:24:00 PM
I haven't gone on 4chan in a while, since MGS 4 came out actually. There were a lot of spoilers for it popping around on /v/(which I also visited) so I decided to avoid 4chan altogether until I got a PS3 which I assumed would be soon at the time. Well I still don't have one yet and it's been so long since I went on 4chan that I sort of forgot about it. Also I had a lot of family problems going on this summer so I didn't really have time to think about 4chan or anime or what have you. As soon as I catch up on Code Geass I plan on going to /m/ again, I do miss that place.

But I did see a teaser for it on youtube, typical PV....just a lot of flashes of things happening with J-pop in the background. I'm pretty out of the loop though, I only just saw the designs for the other 3 Gundams just yesterday. I also don't even have kits of the old ones....so much catching up to do.

More news, October 5th, 2008 is the start of the second season.

I have the 3rd trailer for the second season and I see Setsuna there piloting the new Gundam 00. So I guess we know where part of this series is headed  ::) Also, second season date is 2312, meaning its 5 years after the first season ended.

I bought a kit of the original Dynames. Haven't put it together yet. Pretty small model compared to some, 1/144 scale.

so the trd trailer is out and the season is starting sonner. They should have atleast 5 episodes out just so they can get each episode out either 1 per week or 2 per week

that was a good frist episode to start off. I like the fact the they just immediatly let Saji know that Setsuna was a gundam miester. That would put away the corny secrecy.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Aoshi101 on October 08, 2008, 11:35:45 AM
Yeah it was a good first episode.

A speculation on my part:

1) I think Louise might have a connection with Veda like Tieria did in the first season. I say this because that guy who took over Veda said something about Louise, about her now having a reason to battle. So I think he's in need of her for some reason.

ep 2-3
all about the new guy Lyle Dylandy thought he was a clone too
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Aoshi101 on October 27, 2008, 10:57:26 PM
No he was mentioned in Season one if I remember right. I knew it was Lockon's brother, just didn't know where I saw him.

I'm more interested in Louise's story. Everyone else has been explained fully but her. When does she get her chance? Probably next episode.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Kite on October 28, 2008, 07:41:59 AM
Neil said Lyle's name when he was dying

as for Loise's story im guessing its in ep 5 since in ep for they didnt do much

Ali Al Shwartz ( what ever his name is) should be dead. I hate the authors for not letting him die. He needs to die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Aoshi101 on January 21, 2009, 12:18:21 AM
Think back to like Gundam Wing (Heero and the older brother of Relena) or Gundam Seed (Athrun and Kira) or any other Gundam series where you have just one battle that is a dramatic battle where everyone is hooked. Thats why they didn't kill of Ali Sarshes.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Kite on March 04, 2009, 05:56:39 AM
That guys the Counter part of Kowloon of Full Metal Panic, he just doesnt die even if he gets fatally wounded 

Meh so setsuna's going to get innovated, why does it look kinda like seed mode i wonder  :P
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Aoshi101 on March 10, 2009, 09:23:57 PM
thats nothing compared to what Seed copied from. If you ever watched Gundam F91, pretty much Seed copied everything from there.

Anyhow we can kinda figure where the rest of the series is gonna go, however from what ive been hearing this newest episode had alot in it as well, unfortunately the group ive been getting the fansubs for has been late with releases since about episode 14, so I haven't seen it yet.

this series ended well. I really enjoyed it. Now makes me wonder what the Gundam 00 movie is going to entail. We gotta wait til next year to find out.

didnt like how the ending turned out...well thats what the movie is for, still bothered where Exia came from in the last battle ???
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Aoshi101 on April 07, 2009, 04:29:15 AM
It was one of the two extra gundams Celestial Being were restoring prior to the battle. However it couldn't be used due to the lack of a solar drive.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Kite on April 07, 2009, 06:15:16 PM
that explains it...i thought the were only carrying 0 Gundam and Exia was left in that meteor.

Thats what I thought originally, but we're talking about Sumeragi. She always uses every available resource no matter if it doesn't look like itll work.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Kite on April 09, 2009, 05:54:59 AM
well if they didnt bring exia, 00 would just float around and setsuna would be killed by 0 Gundam
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: fightingmelee on April 10, 2009, 07:18:41 PM
I was kinda mad about that. Technically those two solar panels were only for 00 and not meant to fit exia or 0 gundam. I would just find it impossible to attach part of the twin drive system to either one of those gundams.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Kite on April 11, 2009, 02:46:28 AM
werent they originally the GNDrives of Exia and 0 Gundam?

Post by: Aoshi101 on April 13, 2009, 08:25:53 AM
one of the two GN Drives from the 00 Gundam was originally from Exia, yes. The other one was initially attached to 00 Gundam, but they found that the 00 wasn't running with the one GN Drive.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Kite on April 15, 2009, 03:16:14 AM
but it was initially designed to hold the  0 Gundams GN drive and they needed to find a compatible one so that the twin drive system would work.
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: fightingmelee on April 15, 2009, 08:03:30 PM
o, I missed that completely. I think the story would a lot better if most of the people from celestial being were dead
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: Kite on April 16, 2009, 05:33:38 AM
Why would you want that? i already felt sorry for feldt for losing Neil and Lyle for losing Anew.....Anew!!!

but if it was GSDestiny id be happy if they kill of Shin, Kira or Athrun(which was supposedly the original plot anyway)
Title: Re: Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
Post by: fightingmelee on April 16, 2009, 07:32:19 AM
Because I think that the story would be more epic and important if most of them had died, because how I see the war is "partially over" but the earth still needs to clean up celestial being

the CB was needed for the Innovation of the world so i guess having them aint so bad.
