More Gundam 00 Second Season Characters/Information Unveiled

So we know about all the regulars being back in Gundam 00, but now Newtype has published it’s preview of some of the characters we are going to be seeing in season 2, including one new one and a surprise returning character.  Also turns out I was right about one of my theories on the new cast members.  Here’s the printout.  This info is of a spoilerish nature so proceed at your own peril.

Clockwise from top left:  Tieria Erde, Allelujah Haptism, Lockon Stratos, Setsuna F. Seiei, Marina Ishmail, Saji Crossroad, Milena Vashti, Felt Grace, Ian Vashti, Lasse Aion

Gunota Headlines Reports:

Saji Crossroad – Saji, who was affected the most by the resulting strife caused by the Gundams, overcame various hardships in his grieving youth to become an adult. He works in space development, continuing to wait for another meeting with Louise. When will he achieve his dreams?  (Man poor Saji.  Well obviously we know about his space development job from episode 25 and how he’s trying to hook up with Louise again.  We’ll have to see how that goes)

Feldt Grace – Escaping in an assault container with Sumeragi and Ian, she concentrates the life saved by Chris into the resurrection of Celestial Being. Though she was rarely emotional as a young person associating with people before, the 4 years span of time has largely matured her human nature.   (A less Yuki Nagatoish Feldt is welcome in my book and I’m interested to see where they take her now.  I like this idea that characters are able to grow up and change in this series, because it’s not often you get to see very significant character development in anime anymore.  Will she hook up with this version of Lockon or not?)

Ian Vashti – Boarded an assault container in the decisive battle with the UN Forces and narrowly escaped. Afterwards, he began development of a new Gundam, the 00, at the request of Wang Liu Mei. Serves as an engineer in the resurrection of Celestial Being.   (I’m more interested in the other Vashti to be honest.  See below)

Mileina Vashti – Ian’s daughter. A 14-year-old girl with innocence to spare but who participates in the reborn Celestial Being. She is an operator but as she exhibits her father’s genius, she is also active as a mechanic.  (Told ya they were going to add more lolis to the new cast.  Prodigies no less.  I’m willing to guess… one more loli)

Lasse Aeon – Went missing with the downed GN Arms during the decisive battle with Alejandro. But he miraculously turned up alive and returned to the reborn Celestial Being. After Lichtendahl’s death, he is in charge on the bridge of not only the gunning but as the helmsman as well.  (Whoa.  So he made it out of that battle alive.  I guess that makes him this series Char Aznable for surviving unexpectedly time after time)

That’s me in the red obviously.   Well as always the Newtype article is sort of kind of….too short.  Kind of reminds me of the video game magazines we have hear that advertise no hold barred exposes of highly anticipated games and then print out like a page and a half of information we already know.  At least we got a new character though right?  Right?! 😦

    OMG! Lasse has been sunrise-d! Is it….wrong to find the resurrected version even hotter? Lol, and the new loli is cute too. They all look so much more mature. Feldt looks even a bit cynical. This is definitely a step up from the first series.

    Why do I have a feeling that, much as they did in Ep.24, that Feldt and Setsuna will interact more this season due to Lockon (old)? They are both deeply connected to him, one could argue he was an older brother to both of them if not more, and the new Lockon, likely to them, will give them a hard time especially if he looks exactly like old Lockon.

    wuu! Lasse is back! hooray for finnish named anime characters! 😀

    @Kurogane: Actually no. We never saw the dead body so there was no way to determine whether he was dead or not. That’s fair game in any story. And the new loli looks like a Mai Hime character to me, but I’m sure she won’t be pulling any magical girl stuff on us. I’m curious to learn who the VA is though. I’m going to place my bets on Yuko Goto.

    @Var: I think there will be some conflict there yes.

    The question is- How is Feldt gonna behave in front of the original Lockon’s twin brother.

    @Jakke: Totally agreed. Anime (in general) needs more Finnish named anime chracters.

    I didn’t know the new uniform was universal for Celestial Being/the ship they may or may not be stationed on. I just assumed it was just the pilots. It is just me, or is tight pants with tiny jackets the gayest thing ever?

    No information on Louise nor Nena on the official site yet… still designing or they won’t be in the series until few episodes?
