And we get a trailer
Wow the show is brand new and yet is already making me feel nostalgic. I’m really liking how the character designs look when animated too. Simply amazing so far.
In other big news there was some information revealed about the upcoming 00 Movie, but it mostly deals with the mecha to be used in the series:
Gundam 00 QUANTA
– Setsuna’s machine
– Has a shield like the 00-Raiser over the left shoulder
– Has “funnels”. There is a scene where the funnels are being used in the trailer.
– There is a fair bit of blue in the color scheme.
– Allelujah’s machine
– Colored orange
– Can transform
– Harut and Marut are two angels mentioned in the Qur’an. The Gundam has a visor like the Astraea and the GN Archer.
– Lockon’s machine
– The Zabaaniyah are the guardians of Hell in the Qur’an.
– Looks like a close-combat unit.
– It has a slim torso and big legs like the Virtue.
– It carries a “GN Armor lite” on its back.
– Main weapon : Double hand gun.
– Tieria’s machine
– See the Archangel Raphael.
– It has wired cannons in its fingers (like the Belphegor Gundam) and 4 cannons on its shoulders
I think at Gundam Expo people might have actually gotten to see them, and if any pictures turn up and are confirmed then I’ll post them, but just from the description it sounds like they’ve gone with the unsurprising choice to give them angelic themed names and to make them the successor’s to the 5th Generation Gundam’s. A few things to consider though are the sudden shift from biblical naming to Qur’an naming choices for the mobile suits, and the fact that Tieria has a mobile suit and that for some reason Lockon’s has another unit on it’s back that sounds like it might be pilotable. The only person he ever really seemed like he would partner up with like that was Anew, but of course she’s dead. Feldt taking up her parents legacy rumours abound.
