New Gundam series

A new Gundam series has just been announced:

GUNDAM 00 (Double-O).

Not much on it yet, except for a teaser video.

Here is a link to the official site, which still only contains the teaser vid.

My first impression is that it looks waaaaay better than Gundam SEED, and most importantly the characters aren’t designed by Hisashi Hirai. The mecha design looks very unconventional, which is in my book, a good thing. Remember that Gundams tend to always look the same.

Another interesting thing is that they are using Anno Domini (AD) in the date shown at the start. Since this show is set in 2307 AD, this means it will take place in our timeline, 300 years from now.

As someone said on the youtube comment board:

THIS IS ITS A GUNDAAAAAAAAM!

I really look forward to this series, and I sure hope it turns out to be awesome.

(Does anyone else notice the resemblance of the logo to the James Bond 007 logo? D: )

  3. […] Rampant Lion Sable […]
