Gundam 00 Discussion Thread [SPOILERS]
« 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

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.

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.

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.

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

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?

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
