Well as always I was way off with my wild predictions, but then what else is new. Clean up operations? It could defnitely work. This is a period a lot of people including myself have been waiting to see covered for a while, the immediate post-OYW period. Of course the war couldn’t have just ended right then and there with the peace treaty and there were going to be some stragglers. Apparently it was worse then we ever thought though…..so much so that with this new continuity it appears Delaz was beaten to the punch by a full 2 years in trying to bring back the flag of Zeon.
Also with Katoki at the designs I feel pretty comfortable. I’ve always liked his designs better then Ookawara’s boxy units (including Wing Gundam) so I look forward to seeing what he comes up with. And that’s really all the info there is now since Newtype is pulling another “Buy the lateast issue (April) to find out what you need to know about the new Gundam series and we TOTALLY promise it will actually be there ;) ) bit like they always do. I actually don’t actually expect to have anything more for you guys by April if you’ll note the sarcasm in my tone and how much I trust Kadokawa Shoten.
Also I’ve updated the Sora Kake Girl page up to episode 07 and will be getting back to Tytania soon enough.
