2004: Top 25 Anime

Okay so I'm flipping through my old November vol 3 No 11 of Newtype USA and there's a piece about the top 25 anime in 2004. So I just curious to see everyone thoughts about it. Would you/do you agree...disagree? Even being 2010 does some still hold up to their titles? #1: Neon Genesis Evangellion #2...

Re: Which Will Be Next? (ZZ, V, or X?)

Well, the fact that they're releasing Turn A , for maker's sake, puts a little bit of a lie to your statement, doesn't it? It's hardly the 'safe choice' for a Gundam series to be thrown into America right now. But, here's the thing, it's not like they're doing a new series and all the costs involve...

Re: Which Will Be Next? (ZZ, V, or X?)

The problem with this whole "anime fans will recognize ZZ the most" idea is that it was not UC that was the most popular iteration of Gundam in North America, it was Gundam Wing , so an "average anime fan" will be likeliest to think of Wing when they think of Gundam , and ZZ looks nothing like Wing...

Re: Which Will Be Next? (ZZ, V, or X?)

Well, I think it would make more sense for ZZ to be released, since it could be more easily 'tied in' to existing releases than either Victory or X. But, keep in mind, that any of these series would be treated as a filler-dub while waiting for the next new series to come out. I would personally exp...

Re: Turn A Gundam: Coming soon

As long as we don't get Brad Swaile, Steve Staley, or Matt Hill as Loran, I'm good with almost anything. (I know two of those are not even remotely plausible, but you never know - weirder things've happened) My only issue was that I wish that Lorin was a girl. I really think that would have broken ...

Re: Which Will Be Next? (ZZ, V, or X?)

As for the Wing fans reference, well from the look of like sales, would it be so bad if a series has some simillarities that if people watch it, it would remmind them of Gundam Wing? I would not think so, I mean I know it's vague simillarities but it happened with 00 though. I...can't agree because...

Re: Which Will Be Next? (ZZ, V, or X?)

We've discussed ratings a zillion times before, so I don't feel like rehashing that. Instead I'll just point to an old post from Gunota Headlines that has ratings information for every Gundam series, up to 00 season 1. http://aeug.blogspot.com/2004_11_01_archive.html#110060731014068978 Thanks Chris.

Re: Which Will Be Next? (ZZ, V, or X?)

I think in all honnesty they will do Gundam X next, it's more of a standalone series like Turn A itself, despite having influences from UC Gundam series. ZZ and Victory have all that backstory to it, so if people jumped in to it and be expected to know the whole story. Unless they try to tie it in ...

Re: Which Will Be Next? (ZZ, V, or X?)

I'm sensing Victory instead. 'Cause technically it has it all. Drama, adventure, Newtypes, Death, War, Death, Destruction...did I mention more death too? I dunno, I just feel like V, ZZ, then X. I will say a lot of SEED/00 fans won't get the Victory Gundam at first, do to its mass production. <.< a...

Re: Turn A Gundam: Coming soon?

You know I hate to nitpick. BUT you and Amadi Akintunde seem to think 1999 equates it to being a old Gundam series. Well to clarify 1999 isn't that old in comparison to 1979 old. So you know it's kind of old but not super old. It may not seem so old to you or me, but you have to keep in mind that m...

Re: Turn A Gundam: Coming soon?

While part of me is looking forward to seeing what is perhaps the most bizarre Gundam AU series finally get a US release, I'm pragmatic enough to virtually guarantee it will bomb savagely if it goes to TV. Between the oddball mech designs and the naked ritualism the censors will have a field day wi...

Re: Turn A Gundam: Coming soon?

My thing is that it's 2010 and you already have come out with literally the majority of the gundam series. Might as well produce the remaining four (ZZ, V, X, and Turn A) out right. Two UC's and Two AU's. ooo from Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 do you guys think that, that's going to be Loran's & Gym Ghi...

Re: G Gundam Thoughts

How is G Gundam a "'riff'" of popular 90s anime? It's just Imagawa doing the kind of Gundam series he wanted to do. Have you seen any of his other stuff? It's pretty much what he usually gives us (Giant robots plus a lot of martial arts) Actually, surprisingly, it isn't the series he wanted to do. ...

Double Zeta Gundam Blu-ray

Anyone by any chance have any info regarding this? Like are they selling well, etc.

I know they are expensive as hell, but I also want to say I read they can be played on U.S.'s dvd players.
