Rewatched Mobile Suit Gundam 3: Encounters in Space.

Holy fuck what an amazing movie. I'll type my full thoughts later, as it's pretty late at my end, but I'll sum it up with six words:
SPOILER: Show
YES MY SWEET, YES MY SWEETEST

All jokes aside though, it's an absolute triumph of a film. Quite frankly, Gundam could have stopped there and I'd be happy. (Though obviously I'm glad it didn't.)

Well anyway, next on my tour of duty is a rewatch of War in the Pocket.
Here lies Squigsquasher.

I was recently thinking how IBO is literally the only weekly gundam I have enjoyed since 00, so I decided to do some research. Now I'm in shock. I can't believe Gundam 00 is officially a decade old in 2017...

Since 2007 we only had AGE and Reconguista G as episodic shows, as well as Build Fighters which is a spin off. Other projects included Unicorn and Origin movies that come once or twice a year. I am almost a little upset at how quickly the last 10 years flew by.. :/

My current mindset has me thinking I am strictly a Universal Century buff because I have tried Alternate Universes like Wing, SEED, IBO and 00 and other than watching the first few episodes of each series, I can't really get a genuine attachment to any one.

Speaking of UC, I learned from Amazon.com that 0083 is coming in early April on BluRay which is definitely a favorite of mine.

Go on Rightstuf and search "gundam", then filter to DVD and Blu ray and you'll everything that is coming out in the near future. Quite a lot.

While it's a bummer about that 0079 movie trilogy BluRay delay, if the upcoming news pertains to G and Wing, I am TOTALLY on board!

I'm just pleased that everything SEED is on a permanent backburner nowadays, I'm happy that Origin has more animation in the works as it's something that's full on Universal Century and Gundam to the core, after so much nonsensical shallow rehash from the 90's to the 2000's it's a real reinvigoration. 2017's going to see some nice gunpla too. One thing I noticed is that some kits have english translations on the box and manual.

I am tempted to say that 2017 is the year of the Gundam. In addition to Rightstuf doing the physical release for Gundam Wing Crunchyroll has added it to their line up, along with Build Fighters and TRY, and Just added today my personal favorite Mobile Fighter G Gundam. Then there is the other UC side story that will be out in a few months Twilight Axis as well as the second season of Thunderbolt.

Twilight Axis sounds interesting, and I hope that it won't leave a bitter taste in my mouth like Thunderbolt did. Actually, this news does raise an interesting question for me. A few years ago, the Gundam franchise was pretty much dead with the shuttering of Bandai Entertainment (though there were other factors involved, such as in this youtube video. For the record, I don't agree with all the video's points). Today, it seems the franchise is in a full renaissance. The various anime titles, including ones that haven't been released in the US before, are getting physical releases, we can watch episodes of the current Gundam anime only hours after it aired in Japan, and we're getting various manga released as well. My question is what exactly changed to allow for this turnaround? What factors convinced Sunrise it was worth the investment? I can't think of any answers.

In North America we don't get the full Gundam experience per say, we really are at the mercy (for the most part) to what companies decide to import. Part of the revival may be due to the 35th Gundam anniversary that had a bunch of associated projects in Japan. But really Rightstuf has been doing a good job getting series brought in, I kind of suspect that their sales of Unicorn may have convinced them to bring in series previously unavailable in the west. Combine that with the rise of online streaming services it has reached a more broader audience. I don't know how much all of this is costing Rightstuf but for the older series I bet its realitively low costs since they either already have an old english dub that could be used or just do a sub only release like Turn A or ZZ which would keep the costs down compared to say if Funimation were to bring in a older series and do a redub.

I think this was a big part of it. Another factor I believe was the unexpected success of the Gundam the Origin manga over here as well. It should also be noted that the first title released was Turn A, and I don't think that was unintentional. My hypothesis was that it was released first as a test to see if there would be enough buyers to convince everyone involved to release the rest of the franchise. Not only was Turn A one of the shows that didn't have a North American release at the time, it was the one that Bandai promised, but failed to deliver when they shut down.

Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans is over and its second season was better than the first. I always felt the focus on Kudelia and her problems was the weakest part of the first season, so the removal of most of that was great.
I also felt that the battle choreography was much better than in the first season and I in general it was just an all around better looking show.
That said, while I enjoyed the show, there are a couple of things that annoyed me. I'll put that in spoilers.

SPOILER: Show
-Tekkadan were too one dimensional. The beginning of the season was promising, showing negative effects of Tekkadans rise, but these became background very fast. It's odd that they did this, because Tekkadans fall is ultimately a mostly positive thing, so it's a bit of a missed opportunity not to portray them in a grayer light.
-Rustal being a neutral character at the end was a nice spin on him, but I wish it had been foreshadowed more. All we see of him most of the time is him being arrogant and crushing his enemies using every means at his disposal. They could have had a couple of lines were he shows he isn't so one sided, although him never really showing that other side of him could be seen as part of his character. I don't know :um:


Going by the internet, the reactions to this Gundam series run across the entire spectrum of emotions. I'd honestly recommend not listening to any of it and watching the show blind.
Well, lets see what comes next for the AU! Going by the announcements it seems they're going full ahead with the UC but maybe two years from now?

An IBO related event held at the at the Animate store in Shinjuku has dropped the little bombshell that Atra and Kudelia are indeed married in the epilogue.

Yes, and I wish I had that much money just laying around to buy such awesome things with...

My only question is, are there other 1/12 scale Gundams?

I'll be receiving my copy of The 08th MS Team BluRay by Tuesday morning.

For a love story, we see so little Shiro/Aina interaction. Only at select points in the story and the final episode doesn't even have them say a word since it's a side quest that never got fully developed.

Gundam IBO to be released this fall by Funimation of all companies. I thought Rightstuf had the right to the fanchise.
