So is "One of Seventy Two" intended to be canon then? It sure seems like Sunrise want it to be.

Sunrise festival info:
-90 minutes lenght confirmed
-Banshee Norn NT-D Mode(with mane) and Sinanju MA(looks like Dendrobium) partially shown
-MS cameos come from 1st until Formula era
-They are aiming to show MS from ZZ that don't have a HGUC yet particularly
-They are using more standard animation than CG for the battles

Also Rebawoo wasn't meant to appear in the DOME-G video until Katoki appeared with the design and the Phenex has nothing to do with the tapestry.

Rebawoo HGUC is open to reservation. So the design is pretty much fixed.
You can see the beam rifle thing in the shield, along with the two guns at the legs and the axe.

Oh man, I really hope we get updated lineart. MP ZZ is one of my favorite classic MSVs. @[email protected]

Since we're getting closer to the Torrington battle in Bande Desinee I hope they give us full lineart for the Nemo III, since they put some work into it giving 2 more head vulcans and making it hold a Guncannon Detector custom Beam Rifle.

Besides the Byalant Custom Unit 2

Since it wasn't in the Mechanics and World book I'm doubtful we will... unless they put it in the Prismatic Mobiles thing.

I also believe that a MP Hyaku Shiki Kai is also shown in the same anaheim storage room with MP ZZ, MP Zeta, and Nouvel GM III.

The difference between the MSV and Bandisee version seems to be the color only, the cannons are identical. It is pretty much skyblue versus tradition Bylarant colors. Funny how the latter version has the EFSF decal, does that mean it is permanently assigned to the Ra Calium and is capable of space operation? Riddhe is getting unit 2, so that means unit 1 should still piloted by Robin, or else that gets malfunctioned instead. The canon gaiden is a gaiden of the anime so the unit 2 malfunctioned in that continuity.

Robot Damashii of Unit 2 please.

Anyway, Bandisee is a perfect marriage of the new elements from the anime and the plot of the novel version. I shall treat it as a pure expanded adaptation.

Story-wise:
Novel>>>>>BD>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>OVA

Mech-wise:
BD>OVA>>>>>>>>Novel

Funny how the Banshee in BD didn't get the Armed Armor when it disabled Unicorn and Delta in Dakar.

Eh, manga's okay. I don't particularly enjoy the Loni stuff in the original, so I prefer the OVA on that count (and the visual/musical elements of the OVA are of course incredible) but all the extra worldbuilding is nice in the manga/novels.

That said, I really feel like the manga is just MILKING the mecha stuff, even moreso than the OVA. Not that that's really a problem, mind, just an observation.

Most likely. Now what do they have left to display? For one whatever Full Frontal is riding in the next chapter -but I guess is to early for Gunpla to spoil that one. Aside from that I don't think they have anything short of left-field throw like a HGUC Efreet or a Guncannon Detector
