Non-Potato Quality PV is out
For those wondering, Jazz does play a part in the story.
4 part 18-20 minute online OVAs
should I only watch the first Mobile Suit Gundam in preparation for this to get a better understanding of and appreciate it better? How Zeta and ZZ and Char's Counterattack?
All I know is that they take place in the U.C.
It's during the One Year War, so 0079 is all you need.
Hirotoshi Takaya is doing the Character Designs for the animation, but it's all adapted from a Manga
Just watch them all in production order senpai
0079 is a classic, great show
Zeta is pretty awesome as well, more grim atmosphere
ZZ is weaker and is more of a comedy but it improves in the latter half, controversial show
Char's Counterattack is the conclusion to this whole saga so you may as well watch it. I liked it at any rate
This takes place near the end of the One Year War. The Thunderbolt sector protects Zeon's supply line to A Bao A Qu and is guarded by Snipers with anti-ship cannons hiding in the debris of Side 4. The Federation unit coming to clear the sector is comprised of former residents of Side 4.
Char's Counterattack is basically required if you want to get any of UC. It's horribly paced and feels like they cut out even more than F-91 (which was supposed to be a full four cours show), but it's got enough other reasons to see it.
It'll cover the first arc of the source material. Like 60% of the pages are pure action
Prepare for lots of cute female feddies and zeeks to be brutally fried or vaporized by beams of light without mercy.
Not every GM Cannon has its days.
Along with any child pilot inside.
I think the fact that the 2 main MSs are A Full Armor Gundam and a Crimson Zaku with additional thrusters is somewhat of a tribute to Johnny Ridden
You should know that all the extended universe content has already confirmed that there were multiple gundams by the end of the war. Amuro's Gundam was the prototype unit that collected data for the GMs and other derivatives of the V Project and the most successful since it was paired with a Newtype. 08th MS team had massed produced Gundams and 0080 had an all new unit that was intended to replace the RX-78-2 for Amuro. If the RX-78-2 was so successful, it would make sense that the federation would try to replicate it's success since the GMs weren't quite as good.
Holy fucking shit, I started reading it yesterday but also saw pic related somewhere else.
So he eventually loses both his hands too? Fucking feddie scum
Origin might get the entire adaptation, they already have the RX-78-2 model made and ready to animate.
Plus, they never said they wouldn't adapt the rest of it. It'd just have been way too early to announce that when the first part isn't even done yet.
It depends, I mean Origin obviously doesn't have the budget of Unicorn and yet it has sold a good 80k+ per volume if I remember correctly. This might be enough to push them to just do a full adaptation with a 2 OVA per year schedule.
That was a promo for this baby right here, but it still could be taken as a hint since it wasn't explicitly stated.
Speaking of which, this model is looking to sell by the truckloads from what I have heard. 3 more models is absolutely perfect for them, that alone might urge them to do it. Reminder that they ended up releasing like 20+ Unicorn frame variants, and they all sold like hotcakes.
>Origin might get the entire adaptation
Actually that's exactly what happens in Thunderbolt
>that smooth animation
F91 was 13 episodes of content. CCA felt more like 26 (or could have been a 26 episode series)
>Will Johnny Ridden ever get his chance to be animated?
You could probably adapt most of MSV-R as 4 episodes, who knows. I'd love to see him animated too, he's such a fun character.
>Origin is set for 4 OVAs only, and that's it.
That's such a weird decision if that's how they're going to play it, because the prequel seems so at odds with 0079.
I wish they'd announce something for the core of the story after they get these weak prequel arcs part out of the way, preferably with the team from Studio 1.
Seeing all this UC Gundam with extremely good animation, I can't help but wish they adapted Origin in its entirety. 0079 aged quite badly in some aspects, and giving it a new polish with the focus of the manga would give us an amazing anime.
Downside is, it'd probably take 10+ years to complete, as they'd want the best quality possible.
>that handdrawn mecha
>that fluid animation
I'm so happy to be alive in this moment.
The Psycho Zaku is rigged so that the amputees can move it as if it were an extension of their prosthetic limbs
This one is a side-story that takes place in an alternate version of the original series so you can watch it right away but you should at least see the gundam trilogy movies to get some exposition on the situation
It'd be such a fucking ridiculous waste to not adapt the rest. A proper origin adaptation is literally the single greatest possibility for gundam to hit it big somewhere other than Japan, and would obviously be a monstrous success in Japan as well. They have the damn blueprint right there and ready to use
